Roxborough's main concern is that     rejected an application to rezone proper!  by Nancy Moote  A controversial private sewage plant at  the Irvine's Landing Marina has the green  light from the provincial Ministry of  Environment.  Jane Reid, regional director for Pender  Harbour and Egmont, said she's appalled  by Ihe decision and hopes to appeal it.  "The regional district and residents'  concerns were given no consideration,"  she said.  On Nov. 26, the marina was granted a  permit to discharge 40.9 cubic metres of  treated effluent a day. The permit specifies that the sewage plant would service a  marina, pub, 24-unit motel and 3000  square foot conference centre  Only the marina and pub presently  exist.  The day before the (Wltn>lr��<aVas issued,  the regional district faxed the ministry  asking them to put the project on hold  until the SCRD had a chance to review  the marina's water circulation study and  an Environment Canada water quality  study for all of Pender Harbour.  Bul by ihen it was too late to stop the  permit. Pender Harbour resident Bill Rox-  borough, said in August he sent a petition  with 161 names opposing the project to  John Cashore, then Ihe environment minister. Roxborough's main concern is that  this decision opens the gate to other  requests for sewer outfalls in the area.  Dennis Barlow, waste management  officer with the MOE office in Surrey,  said he has no record of such a petition.  Five phone calls and three letters concerning the project came in, he said, and those  concerns were answered.  The decision to grant the permit was  made on technical grounds, Barlow said.  He emphasized that any new development  must still go through the regional district's planning and rezoning procedures.  Exploring artistic,  personal boundaries  with paintbrush, easel  by Darah Hansen  Bright colour makes it  impossible to sit comfortably in  the room with all the paintings.  All the primaries - add pinks  and purples - beam out from  their Bristol board backing,  charged with the electricity of  the artist herself.  The colours are strictly separate yet twisted  together into  shapes that don't        ������������  make sense.  The images are  there, teasing you  to find them, but  they don't reveal  themselves.  Ursula Frilsch  knows her art is  not"easy."  She knows  people have to  work to reach a  level of understanding of what    they're seeing.  "That's the way  I like it," she says, siring amid a  portion of her work displayed in  the living room of her Gambier  Island home.  To reach that level of comprehension, she says: "You've  got to commit yourself to it.  You've got to study it and  you've got to gel used to it."  "You can't fall asleep in  front of paintings like these  that's for sure."  Fritsch does not consider  herself an abstract artist.  Though the images she creates are far from reality, they are  real images.  "I like Ihings with people and  animals in them ... Even if you  ���You can't fall  asleep in front  of paintings  like these  that's  for sure'  ���Ursula Fritsch  don't recognize them," she says.  Pointing to a painting she  calls 'The Cow' - she's pleased  the image isn't readily apparent.  "You can't see it?" says  Fritsch. She outlines with her  finger the beast's yellow horns,  tracing the body back to the tip  of the tail. Only then does the  name take on a sensical form.  She smiles: "(A  painting) should be  ������     a little bit of a  mystery."  Years ago,  Fritsch began her  work as a painter  reading "how-to"  books about landscapes but within a  short time the style  just didn't mean  anything to her  anymore.  "There was no  challenge," she        says.  It was something she kept up  only as long as it took to delve  into her own imagination.  A course in acrylic painting,  some sketching classes and a  passion for the work of artists  Cezanne, Klee and Miro pushed  her to seek out her own talents.  Miro, she says, has been the  greatest influence on her work.  She pulls down a book on his  art from atop a shelf. Flipping  through Ihe photos, she comments on how much she loves  his "crazy figures."  "But I have to be careful,"  Fritsch says.  "Sometimes I'd just like to  make some crazy things (like  this) and not worry about Miro  Artist Ursula Fritsch wilh one of her works.     Darah Hansen photo  ... Because of him, I have to  hold back, otherwise I'd just be  duplicating."  Duplication of what already  exists is something she broke  away from when she left landscape artistry.  What she strives for now is a  creative use of colour over a  hard, flat surface.  Her paintings are noticeably  flat - very little perspective. It's  difficult for her to explain why  she likes it that way.  Frustrated for an answer, she  says: "It's just the way you're  made up."  It's easier lo say why she  likes colour - "the brighter the  better."  She likes to paint things that  are happy, emphasizing the  emotion by Ihe vividness of the  hues.  "Life is miserable enough.  Why should I paint miserable  things?" she says.  She adds, despite her conscious purpose, critics have  pointed to a hidden sinister  quality in her work.  Fritsch concedes it might  well be Ihere.  "My life wasn't always  happy," she says, remembering  a bomb destroying her house in  Germany during the war and  later her first lonely years in  Canada.  turn to page 15  Earlier this fall the regional district  rejected an application to rezone property  adjacent to the Irvine's Landing pub from  rural residential to commercial. The decision came after.vigorous objections were  voiced during a public hearing.  Reid said no one at the public hearing,  except the marina's lawyer, spoke in  favor of the plan. Many of the objections  concerned the sewage disposal plans.  At that time the marina owners denied  they had any plans to expand their business. Marina representative Lorna Elliot  could not be reached for comment on Friday.  LRUP  committee  lurches  along  toward  consensus  by Ian Cobb  Though they come from various backgrounds and interest  bases regarding forestry issues -  the Local Resource Use Plan  (LRUP) committee has reached  al least one consensus. They-  want lo resolve the ongoing  debate surrounding the future  of the Tetrahedron plateau.  However, the latest gathering of LRUP committee members showed there's still a way  to go before the group reaches  agreement on whether or not  the Tetrahedron is to be included in the provincial government's Protected Areas  Stratagy (PAS), which seeks to  protect a representative 12 per  cent of the province's eco-sys-  tems.  With a Dec. 31 deadline  looming over them, the 14 in  attendance at the Sunshine  Coast Forest District boardroom on Field Road, Dec. I,  agreed they have to meet more  often and strive to try and draft  a report and take it to the public  for review before the production of a final draft.  The main purpose of the  Dec. 1 meeting was for the  seven sub-committees that  make up the diverse interests of  the LRUP-Tetrahedron group  to table their reports.  turn to back page  ___���_���  MHMI '��.

Constable Paul Stevens displays narcotic substances seized last  week. Dorah Hansen photo  Montreal massacre remembered  on Coast through candlelight vigil  by Nancy Moote  First mourn, then work for  change.  In that spirit of activism,  women, men and children will  gather tonight to remember the  14 young women killed on Dec.  6,1989.  The women were students  and employees at L'Ecole Poly-  technique, a MontreiU engineering college. The murderer, who  also killed himself, left a suicide  note which made clear his  motive was resentment of  women.  Carol Stewart, coordinator of  the Women's Resources Society, said the vigils will remember those women, and all  women who are victims of violence.  Jo Cardinall, Maureen Dar-  ragh and Merv Roy are working  in different ways to end violence  on the Sunshine Coast. They  agree that the Montreal massacre should not be forgotten.  Darragh, coordinator of the  Sunshine Coast Transition  House, sometimes feels frustrated because a lot of people still  don't know what happened in  Monteal or recognize that violence against women is a problem.  "The word feminist is still a  dirty word - the 'F' word," she  said.  Darragh works with battered  women, and she knows women  have good reason to be afraid.  But rather than being martyrs or  blaming every man who walks  by, she said it's important to  keep working.  Vigils In  remembrance  of the  massacre of 14  women In  Montreal will  be held at  Rockwood in  Sechelt and  Dougal Park  In Gibsons.  file pholo  Roy, a counsellor with the  Action Drug and Alcohol Society, wears a white rose every  Dec. 6.  "We're attreally  concerned about the  escalation of  violence in our  society'  -Maureen Darra__h  He believes the memorial is  important for men as well as  women.  Roy has organized a series of  men's anger groups during the  past year and a half. He sees an  enormous need for such work on  the Coast.  "It's almost epidemic," he  said. "If you have a man in here  with an alcohol and drug prob  lem, you can be sure he's an  angry person." And if that man  is living with a partner, Roy  added, it's likely he's abusing  her either physically or verbally.  Cardinall and other Raging  Grannies are organizing the  Gibsons vigil and campaigning  against violent games and  videos.  "We're all really concerned  about the escalation of violence  in our society," she said.  Or, as Darragh puts it, "All  we want is peace. It's that simple."  Tonight, the Sechelt vigil  starts at Rockwood at 6:30 p.m.,  followed by a reception and  screening of the film After the  Montreal Massacre.  The Gibsons service will  begin at S p.m. in the gazebo at  Dougal Park.  Participants are asked to  bring candles - and the determination to end violence.  Gibsons crime rate up 50 per cent  by Darah Hansen  Police in Gibsons are fighting  an ugly trend this year.  Reports of violent crimes  committed within the town and  surrounding area are up by over  50 per cent from last year,  according to statistics compiled  by the Gibsons RCMP detachment. Corporal Robin Blair of  the detachment confirmed the  increase is occurring in all areas  of "person offences" - from  murder to common assault.  Since August, three women  have been sexually assaulted,  including a 13-year-old.  While in September, Stuart  Brown, 29, was killed in a fight  outside of Elphie's Cabaret.  Blair said it was difficult lo  reason why the violence is  increasing, but attributed part of  the blame on "extremely limited" police resources in a rapidly  growing community.  Blair said while the town and  surrounding area has increased  in population to almost 11,000  over the lasl decade, the size of  the police force has not  changed.  A total of 10 officers make  up the detachment with one or  Iwo officers working per shift.  Meanwhile, in Sechell, Corp.  John de Jong reported crime to  be "down marginally" this year.  Even so, officers were busy  with an investigation into the  murder of 86-year-old Harold  Tibb in May as well as "numerous" sexual assaults.  The Sechelt detachment consists of 20 police officers,  including four on the marine  crew and two on highway  patrol.  Downed hydro leave residents in dark  Many Gibsons and Roberts  Creek residents were left out in  the dark Monday evening after a  tree fell over a power-line near  Veterans Road and Highway  101.  Power went off at 5:30 p.m.  and returned at 7:50 once a  hydro crew had cleared the  debris away and restored safety.  The area affected by the outage stemmed from Roberts  Creek Road to Upper Gibsons.  "It took out a fair chunk,"  declared Hydro service planner  John MacKenzie- Moore.  Molher Nature couldn't have  picked a worse time as many  people were undoubtedly in the  midst of cooking or eating dinner  and, as MacKenzie-Moore noted,  "it hit a lot of businesses at that  lime of nighl" lhat are heading  into their Christmas boom-time.  A 21-year-old Gibsons man was arrested along  with two young offenders for break, enter and theft  last week.  Cheyenne Billy was charged wilh break, enter  and theft in relation to a house break in which  occured on Nov. 10 in Ihe Eagle Ridge area of  Gibsons.  Corp. Robin Blair reported police recovered  "much of the stolen property in excess of $3,000." news  Woodcreek negotiations pending  by Jane Seyd  Negotiations on the cost of clean-up are set  to begin this month between local government  and developers of the malfunctioning Woodcreek sewage system near Gibsons.  But so far, while a stop-gap measure is in  place, no work has been done on the site  towards a long-term solution to the problem.  Environment and health officials say  they're hoping that work starts soon. With  recent heavy rains, they say, there may be a  danger of sewage resurfacing on the drain  field.  Dennis Barlow, an environmental protection officer, said so far the developers have  done some remedial work on the site, including installing another disposal field to replace  the one which malfunctioned last winter.  But according to Barlow, the new drain  field is not in accordance with plans approved  by the Ministry of Environment, while the old  drain field has not been adequately repaired.  That means there's slill Ihe potential for  trouble. Most recently, after meetings with the  environment ministry, the regional district has  agreed to apply for a provincial grant, which if  approved would cover half the cost of repairing and rebuilding the sewage system for the  Woodcreek subdivision.  The report calls for the  system to be turned over to  the regional district for  operation  The total cost is estimated at over  $245,000.  The developers, Don and Shirley Macln-  tyre, would also be required to put up funding  and/or land towards fixing the system, but  "there wouldn't be any regional district  money put in," said Sieg Lehmann, superin  tendent of public works.  Regional directors also wanl to make sure a  grant to clean up Woodcreek wouldn't jeopardize the possibility of other grants for sewer  and waler projects for other parts of the Coasl.  Back in October, a consultant's report for  Ihe Ministry of Health recommended the cost  of fixing the Woodcreek system be split  between the provincial government (through  the Ministry of Environment) and the developers, with residents paying a small portion.  Once running properly, Ihe report calls for  the system to be turned over to the regional  district for operation.  No time frame was given for repairs to be  completed in the recommendation.  Problems with the Woodcreek system date  back to 1987, culminating last winter in raw  sewage surfacing on the drain field. Six environmental charges stemming from the Woodcreek situation are still faced by the developers, scheduled to appear in court in Feb  Foot passengers load the 12:20 ferry at Langdale as BC Ferrie's Corp personnel assess damage which occurred when the Queen of  Cowichan struck the dock. Joel Johnstone photo  Queen of Cowichan docks with gusto  by Ian Cobb  BC Ferry Corporation is  investigating an accident that  occured at Ihe Langdale Ferry  Terminal Dec. 1.  The 5,961-tonne Queen of  Cowichan ended her 11:30 a.m.  trip from Horseshoe Bay lo  Langdale with a bump, causing  minor damage to the ship and  sending the days schedule back  50 minutes.  A witness waiting for the  ferry to dock said it appeared as  though the ship "came in  crooked" and "he jusl whapped  it (dock)."  BC Ferry's communications  manager Ed McKenzie said the  accident occured when the ferry  "bumped the dock catwalk  between the dolphins."  The "dolphins" help guide  the ferry into the dock.  "There was slight damage to  the ship," McKenzie said.  "A deckplate was slightly  buckled,",  In addition, some wood  broke loose from the catwalk  and fell on the Dogwood  Princess, also docked at Langdale and the smaller craft  received minor damage.  "I don't have, at this time,  any monetary figures for the  damages," McKenzie said.  AS" for whether there was  I injuries, he said, "The only  i thing we're aware of is a woman  ' bumped her shoulder against a  truck."  Another passenger, Ty of  West Vancouver, said he felt "a  little bump" while he was walking down a flight of stairs and  though he didn't know what had  happened, "it was pretty cool."  Hope dims for Christmas lights in Sechelt  by Nancy Moote  Is it the town of Sechelt, or  Whoville after the Grinch's evil  visit?  Big plans to light Ihe streets  of Sechelt during the festive season have been snuffed out  because Sechell council and Ihe  Chamber of Commerce couldn't  agree which decorations to buy.  Chamber president Patrick  Hobbs described the decision as  a swan song for the outgoing  council, adding lhat chamber  members did 150 per cenl to  make Ihe project work.  "We're all really, really upset  about it," he said. "Not only do  we suffer, but every person  going through Sechelt at the  time the lights would have been  up also suffers."  According to mayor Nancy  MacLarty,   in    ______________  the past the  town's budget  for Christmas  decorations  "couldn't even  replace bulbs  that had burnt  out."  So this year, council increased that budget to $10,000  and asked the Chamber of Commerce to choose the decorations.  The chamber canvassed  downtown merchants, consid-  We're att really,  really upset  about it  -Patrick Hobbs  ered some 20 options, and suggested that each of the new  downtown lighl posts be hung  with a lighted wreath.  ______________ The decorations cost  $11,300 and  were chosen  from a U.S.  catalogue.  When the  chamber's suggestion came to  council three weeks ago councillors nixed the choice, complaining the wreath design could only  be seen from one side, the supplier was not Canadian, and the  decorations might be vandalized.  They voted to table the matter  and investigate other alternatives, which means it's too late  to buy the decorations in time  for Christmas.  Even the Christmas tree  which traditionally graces the  cenotaph park at the corner of  Wharf and Cowrie is in trouble  this year.  The electrical connection  serving the park was removed  during last summer's downtown  renovation, and the town works  department is trying to figure  out a way to light the tree.  But administrator Art Lew  promised Ihere will be lights on  the tree come hell or high water.

'-.*. -t____��    -*- - -_-���-- V�� ���*��� ���--������������������  _____>__________________��� Coast News, December 6,  1993  opinion  Violence against  women - the time  for change is here  Today we mourn lhe brutal killing of fourteen young  women at a Montreal engineering school in 1989. To  understand why this crime has become a symbol for the  pervasive violence against women in this country, consider the painful facts.  A man with a gun walked into L'licole Polytechnique  th-_ cold December day. ordered all the men to leave an  engineering class, cursed tlie handful of women students  and called them the worst name he could think of - "feminists."  Then he assassinated them.  At the time, there was a defensive outcry that this was  the isolated act of a madman, that Marc Lepine was not  "everyman. ' But a study from Statistics Canada recently  confirmed what women's groups have been saying all  along - violence against women is the norm in Canada,  not the exception. The Montreal massacre was only an  extreme example of the violence women face every day.  The StatsCan report st-ites that over half of all women in  Canada have been physically assaulted by a husband,  boyfriend or stranger.  How do you read tahese statistics?  You can ignore them, saying tlie number seems too high  - at least some women surveyed must have been lying.  There just can't be lhat many women who have been  assaulted.  You can believe the statistics but detach yourself, your  friends, and family members from them. It must be one  twisted man (no one you know) assaulting women at a  rate of about 10 per day.  Or, difficult though it may be, you can accept the clear  implication that a sizeable minority of men have been, and  aie being, violent to women.  It's time lo face up to the dirty facts of life. Male violence has been accepted for too long, excused by old lies  like "she was screwing around" or "it only happens when  he drinks" or "there were layoffs at tlie mill that week."  And yes, l��th men and women do offer tfiese excuses in  all seriousness. They are even accepted as mitigating factors for those rare wife-beating cases which make it to  court.  It doesn't have to be this way. Let's stop the pain and  bloodshed. Let's stand up and recognize that male violence does happen and that it is a serious problem. We've  done enough studies and lighted enough candles.    -������*-* -  On this day when we are asked to remember the 14  young women murdered, let's write our own manifesto to  end the violence:  We demand an end to the tacit tolerance of violence and  the blaming of the victim.  We demand that the justice system treat crimes of violence with more seriousness than crimes of property.  We demand that the aggressors be the ones to leave the  home rather than driving the women into poverty with  their children so that they may escape the terror.  We demand that our children grow up knowing they're  safe from violence and that violence is wrong.  It's not going to be an easy fight. But the only alternative is to close our eyes to basic human values and accept  an ongoing and dreadful crime.  Human Rights  Day approaches  DcormbcrlO is Human Rights  Day, a day on which people in  free countries celebrate the UN  L'rjversal Declaration of Human  Rights. It is the day when ongani-  zations such as Amnesty International draw attention to human  rights abuses in many countries.  The exercise of freedoms thai we  in Canada enjoy can lead lo  impnsonment and death. The use  of torture is widespread and.  increasingly, governments and  rebel organizations are getting  rid of their own people by causing them to 'disappear'.  Canadians can take freedom  for granted. We have just been  through two elections and. however unhappy we personally may  be with the results, we know that  the process was democratic We  can criticize our elected officials  and/or our police force with  impunity. Lawyers and journalists can freely practice their professions We do not have to hide  from 'death squads' or tremble at  night in fear of the arrest thai is a  prelude to imprisonment and torture.  Each year Amnesty International Group 1130 maris Human  Rights Day by asking the residents of the Sunshine Coast to  participate in an action on behalf  of victims of human rights abuses. This year there is a special  campaign on 'disappearances'  and political killings. Group 160  has recently been given a dossier  on a young Guatemalan couple  who 'disappeared' 10 years ago  and who are almosl certainly  dead. Letters will be written to  ask the authorities to bring those  responsible for their arrest and  disappearance to justice. There  are also appeals on cases in the  Philippines. Togo. El Salvador,  etc. We ask residents to come to  Trail Bay Mall on Friday, Dec.  10 and participate in a write-a-  ihon. We will provide writing  materials and all information.  For those people who feel they  can't write letters we'll have  samples to copy. We'll have  greeting cards to be addressed to  prisoners chosen for this year's  greeting card campaign We ask  you to give a few minutes of  your time and, if you can afford  it. a loonie to cover the postage.  Although Amnesty International never claims to be responsible for the release of a prisoner,  there is ample evidence from  statements made by authorities  and former prisoners, that even  the most hardened officials are  sensitive to world opinion. That  is why Al's letter writing campaigns are effective. Last year  one of the recipients in the greeting card campaign was Vera  Chirwa, 61. a lawyer in Malawi.  She and her husband had been  imprisoned for 11 years and her  husband died in October. She  was released in January. She  says, "I was released because of  your good work." Several people  on the Sunshine Coast are part of  that good work. They participated in Ihe appeal on her behalf  last Dec. 10.  There is evidence, too, that  officials pay more attention to  letters written on letterhead.  Therefore, we ask business and  professional people in the community to bring along some of  their letterhead to write a letter or  leans. It matters not if letters are  handwritten but if you want to  bring a laptop, greal!  So please take time on Human  Rights Day to think about citizens who don't have our freedom. Come to Sechelt and give a  few minutes of your time on their  behalf.  SHIRLEY HALL, Chair  AI Group IM  We welcome letters to the editor on molten ol public  interest.

JO CARDINALL  Sunshine Co*_t Raging  Grannies  Clouds of uncertainty still hang over a NAFTA future  In the American Congress the North American  Free Trade Agreement has finally passed. Mexico  is likely to follow suil immediately and the agreement Brian Mulroney pushed through the Canadian parliament, it seems so long ago, looks likely to  rule our lives for better or worse in the years to  come.  Sure. Prime Minister Chretien has some things  he wants changed, notably the energy agreement  which saw Mulroney bequeath Americans access  to Canadian power in perpetuity, but there is little  likelihood of a major Canadian re-thinking at this  stage.  There is unrest in the Labour movement in both  Canada and the United States about the agreement  but in neither country does the movement pack  enough political power to make a significant difference.  In Mexico, too, there arc opposition voices  grumbling about the 'colonial' nature of this agreement which sees one super power binding two  satellite economies to itself whilst seeking to  extend its hegemony throughout the Western  Hemisphere.  Differences between NAFTA and the European  Common Market it is meant to offset may have the  most to teach us. Two significant differences come  readily to mind.  First, there is a commitment in Europe for a  community-wide redistribution of the wealth created so poorer member countries and even member  regions are tlie recipients of extra funding designed  to bring their economics up to community stan-  musings  dard. Second, there is free movement of the citizens of the member countries, under a European  passport, throughout the community for work or  travel.  There seems no such commitment in NAFTA to  a relatively egalitarian distribution of the wealth  created, hence the Mexican charge that it is a colonial agreement. The market forces are to be free, it  is the new article of international faith, and somehow in their blind but omnipotent way they will  reshape all for the better.  Under a European style concordat such  depressed regions as tlie Canadian Maritimes could  expect special funding to shore up their ailing economics. Not so under NAFTA. And the concept  that the long suffering citizens of Mexico are  rapidly to be raised to a North American standard  of living is laughably unlikely. The redistribution  and sharing of created wealth would interfere with  sacred market forces.  In the second matter, the free movement of the  citizens of the participating countries under a com-  john burnside  mon passport, I doubt my children will live long  enough to see that come to pass. Even as the agreement was being approved in Washington recently,  American border patrols were stepping up their  vigilance in an effort to stem the flood of Mexicans  across the joint border. Near El Paso in West  Texas a new system of armed and mounted guards  has proved effective at keeping Mexican nationals  out of that border city to the consternation of El  Paso businessmen.  Canadians do enjoy considerable privilege in  travelling into the States. Seemingly alone in the  world, Canadians can enter wiThout a visa, but  there are only 27 million of us and we are affluent  compared to the 85 million Mexicans.  The feat being expressed by those with reservations about NAFTA is that the only clear winners  are the transnational corporations which will be  able to move ever more easily from country to  country wherever their interests are best served.  There is implicit in the agreement something of the  trickle-down economics which deserved to be thor  oughly discredited after the Reaganomics of the  1980s.  What George Bush himself, campaigning  against Reagan for die presidential nomination in  1980, called 'voodoo economics' proved to be just  that Regulations were cut, taxation on the wealthiest more than halved and the result in all of North  America is staggering national debt and growing  poverty.  The rich get richer and tlie poor get more desperate. The middle class is everywhere under pressure. Yet, by freeing up the wealthiest and the most  powerful continentally we are told we can expect  great benefits in the long run.  We have become expert, have we not, in short  term pain for promised long term gain. Ever since  our governments ran themselves hopelessly into  debt we have been urged to tighten our belts for  the sake of our children's future. And so we have,  but the situation does not seem to improve. The  suffering goes on and increases, as do the mountains of national debt.  All through tbe 1980s it was well-known tbe  only jobs being created, as the giant corporations  availed themselves of automation and new technology to 'downsize' were being created by small and  medium-sized firms. Still we have this agreement  which at first bLush seems to favour that sector of  the economy in which jobs have been steadily lost  The people of North America are being asked to  take a very great deal on trust by their governments. Utile in the recent track record of those  governments gives cause for easy confidence.  COAST^NEWS  Subscription lares ht  Um Caul Ntws or th.

There was an  interview with perhaps the  mayor, and he was asked what  they would do if Chretien actually did put the kybosh on the  GST. He laughed. We are not  going to call it the GST building  he said, we are going to call it Ihe  Tax Building. There will always  be people to come to it.  I spent about three months in  Summerside and very pleasant it  was too. You can, for example,  with the tide out, wade out into  the harbour lo a set of old piles,  pick oysters off them, open them  wilh the appropriate knife you  have brought in your belt and just  sland there on a sandy bottom  with the sun beaming down and  eat oysters, absolutely as many as  you like.  I had been in PEI only once  before and it was only overnight  and it had been definitely an  untidy visit. It was during the  war and we were in an amphibious flying boat and at the end of  a long flight over the Atlantic  and everything else on the Coasl  was socked in and we landed in  Charlottetown. In the mess there  was a man 1 knew, a Welsh radar  man, a drinking genius guitar  playing type.  He said Ihe pilot, Baldwin and  I were invited to a party and so  we went. Il was a house at Ihe  end of a long road out into the  country and Ihe host was a very  Brit, squadron leader, and from  Ihe stmt it was clear that we, and  certainly our Welsh friend, had  not been invited at all. He was  from Ihe start strumming and  singing away but the air was  becoming distinctly frosty and  Baldwin and I called a cab.  When we saw car lights lum into  the long road we thanked our  hosts, picked up our Welshman  and his guitar and moved oul.  The door shut and locked immediately behind us and the lights  went out, the car we thought was  a cab drove steadily by and it  was pouring with rain.  The squadron leader's car was  parked outside. We put our friend  into the back seat and got in and  waited but no cab. The key was  in the lock so we decided to drive  into town, pick up a cab, return  the car and get out to the station.  As we drove off I noticed a lighl  go on in a bedroom and when we  got to the airport we were led  into the guard room and there  was the squadron leader, furious,  charging us wilh stealing his car.  I remember Baldwin saying you  wanl a car, I will buy you a stable full of cars (his father was a  steel broker in New York.)  The squadron leader said we  All choked up  Re open burning regulations  As a choking, gagging member of a rural wood-burning community, I am elated to read about  tough.���a_w_ prov.incial,. laws  regarding,the. burning of,con-,  slruction clearance and garbage  (Coasl News, Nov. 22 Province  Adds Bile to Burning Regulations").  During Ihe burning season on  the Sunshine Coast, it is difficult  to enjoy a short walk without  inhaling noxious smoke and  fumes.  Last April, before mandatory  burning permit season, I counted  three major fires on cleared land,  all burning at once, mostly for an  average of Ihree days. Two were  within the Town of Gibsons; the  other was in the Sunshine Coast  Regional District. Flakes of ash  settled on my sundeck, though  the nearest fire was over Iwo city  blocks away.  Many new landowners clear  their property of valuable trees as  soon as possible, leaving Ihe  vacant lot with only twisted  stumps, roots and some useful  firewood al the sile. These huge  unsightly piles remain all summer, until burning permit season  is lifted, then the developer or  contractor bums them, regardless  of the weather or moisture content. Sometimes other debris, for  example roofing shingles, plastic  packing materials, join the blaze  to increase the toxicity of the  fumes.  This November, in one large  parcel of land just outside of Gibsons' town limits (off Reed  Road), four huge bonfires burned  for over four days and nights, the  smoke billowing out in the direction of the town. .This type of  major bum, in combination with  a few neighbours burning household garbage, can quickly fill Ihe  sky.  Although developers and contractors are primarily lo blame  for their wasteful ways, wood-  burning stoves also contribute to  the smoke, especially if they  don't burn hot and clean. I am  very much in favour of more  stringent regulations on these  emissions too.  To comprehend the problem,  take a walk on a winter's night  through the low-lying land  between bluff and hills around  the lower Gibsons marina area.  When everyone's stoked up Iheir  fireplace and wood stove, Ihe  resulting smoke fills up Ihis little  valley.  Continual smoke inhalation  has been linked to many illnesses, including an increase of asthma in children. It causes discomfort and danger to those with respiratory ailments or allergies.  Years ago, charities would collect money lo send underprivileged city children to Ihe country  for a holiday. This was known as  the Fresh Air Fund. These days,  Got a  news story?  Call the  COAST  in Sechelt  885-3930  in Gibsons  886-2622  * &  in a nutshell  stuart nutter  would be charged in the morning, but we were a fully armed  operational aircraft and look off  al firsl lighl for our home in Gander and never saw any of Ihem  again.  My second time Ihen in PEI in  Summerside, was a nice contrast.  1 was there doing a refresher  course in navigation and allied  subjects prior lo instructing al the  NATO navigation school due lo  open in Winnipeg. Time, since I  thought I knew it all, was  relaxed. Il was summer and wilh  the oysters and lobsters and all,  and a little spirited croquet and  the rum and all, il was about as  serendipitous a place as a peaceable type could devise.  I met some nice people there  and ultimately they took me  along lo meet Mrs. Brennan.  Mrs. Brennan, pronounced Brennan ihere, was the widow of the  long lime newspaper publisher  and political wheeler. She was  well into her 60s at this time and  had been very active in her own  right, being the patron of many  Maritime writers, including  Thomas Raddall who wrote the  Nymph And The Light and all  those other good tings, and doing  all sorts of imaginative and useful bits like designing Ihe Air  Force tartain. Al this time she was  practically living in a big old four  poster bed in a big airy bedroom  on the second floor of a lovely  old house surrounded by a thick  high hedge.  If you came to know her and  visited in the evenings you came  in by a side door which led to Ihe  kilchen. You left whatever you  might have brought on the  kitchen table and went up Ihe  back stairs to her bedroom and  found three or four people  already sitting aboul the four  poster talking. She would pick  one or other of us to go down and  pour the drinks and these sessions, some of the liveliest talk I  have had, could well go on well  into the morning.  I find il really nice to think of  all these taxmen, and all these  heads-in computer operators,  having to pack up bag and baggage and furniture in Ottawa and  Toronto and move lo this quite  different place which maybe  some of them have never heard  of before. It could be from my  point of view, except for the Sunshine Coast, possible to envy  them, but when, a few years ago  they did the same thing and  moved the headquarters of DVA  to Charlottetown there were quite  a few who gave up their jobs  rather than leave the flesh-pots of  the east.  Just the same and thinking  sentimentally perhaps, if you  were to scour about for a place in  this great expanse a mare usque  lhal we have, some place where  the strongest humanizing influences might be expected to creep  into Ihe tax gatherer's breast,  then Summerside as I knew it  would be just the spot.  ^1  Men's Dress Shoes  & Casual Shoes  "Deer Stags"  "Cougar"  "Griffin"  "Executives  '   pinnae/toe's Shoes  Aj+        SUNNYCREST MALL, GIBSONS ��� 886-2624  [i_t _z   <��v  Jit--.  the kids would return with asthma!

JAN DeGRASS  Gibsons  Thank you,  councillor  Ed Steeves, Gibsons' councillor, stopped by the Elphinstone  Pioneer Museum in September to  ask if he could make a different -  read better - Open sign. He had  noticed that we had a small sign.  He had noticed lhat we had a  small portable sign lhal stood on  a wobbly leg and was unnotice-  able if a vehicle parked in front  of it.  To complement the other signage in Holland Park, as well as  the logo and museum art work on  the building that was sculpted by  Anna Vaughn, he chose to use  red and yellow cedar and to make  up and mount a whole new sign.  He carved the letters out and  mounted them on a cedar slab,  then attached the unil lo the rock  base already in position. He had  designed a bracket for the Open  section of Ihe signage so it slips  in and oul easily. He used several  coats of varelhane to protect the  gorgeous colours in Ihe wood.  Ed Ihen came by wilh a friend ���  and mounted the new sign in1  place.

According to administrator Art Lew, the  extra costs come because a study commissioned from Associated Engineering concluded the initial budget was too low.  Of the extra costs, $9,000 will come from  the sewer expansion project because sewer  pipes will be laid while Ihe road is torn up.  As well, the town is cutting $30,000 from  the Chamber of Commerce contract which  has been postponed until 1994, $20,000  from OCP planning projects which have also  been postponed, and $21,000 in maintenance  costs.  Sprinkler bylaw  People building new houses or doing  major renovations in the outlying parts of  Sechelt must now install fire sprinklers at a  cost of about $2,000 for the average home.  Sechelt Council passed a sprinkler bylaw  al its final meeting Dec.I, establishing three  "fire limit areas" in the East Sechelt,  Redrooffs, and Chapman Creek areas. The  idea is lhat by requiring sprinklers, the district will avoid the need to build satellite fire  stations in these areas, outgoing mayor  Nancy MacLarty said later.  The new law also requires owners to  install sprinklers immediately in commercial, industrial, and multi-family buildings  throughout the district of Sechelt.  MacLarty said she initially opposed the  sprinkler requirement for single-family  homes because of the cost. Bul when the law  came lo a final vote, only councillor Mike  Shanks was opposed.

More than two  years later, the moth is still popping up in our general vicinity.  Agriculture Canada and  Agri-Food Canada announced  Nov. 24 that it has found two  Asian Gypsy Moths in BC, one  in the Port Kells area in Surrey  and the other was found in the  Maplewood area of Saanich on  Vancouver Island.  The moth found on Vancouver Island was located just outside an area treated for the European Gypsy moth last spring.  Agriculture and Agri-Food  Canada's Jon Bell told the Coast  News no Asian Gypsy moths  have been located on the Sunshine Coast since one was local-  Going Away  on Vacation?

After an extensive trapping  program conducted in cooperation with the ministry of forests,  no other moths were found.  However, this past summer a  European Gypsy moth was  located at Langdale, across from  the BC Ferry terminal.  "We would not be contemplating a spraying program,"  Bell said, adding a similar trapping program has been started  similar to the Roberts Creek  program three y:ars ago.  The European, or often incorrectly called North American  Gypsy moth, has been eradicating forests in the eastern USA  and Ontario, Quebec and Ihe  Maritime provinces since the  late 19th century.  "In 1981 it defoliated six million hectares in the US alone,"  reported Dr. Lee Humble, a  research scientist with Forestry  Canada's Forest, Insect and Disease Survey.  The Asian moth is almost  impossible to tell from the European, and a much greater danger  to forests.  Another frightening aspect of  the Asian moth is that it's  appetite is more honed on larch  and coniferous trees.  As for identifying the creatures, Humble said, "The Asian  and North American males can't  be pulled apart. They are quite  similar."  The best way to properly  identify them is by the arrangement of veins in their wings, he  said.  Males are a dark brown  colour and females are a  "chamois" colour, with wavering blackish/dark brown lines  across their forewings.  Condoms-in-schools issue drags on  IMturitm-iVtlA  BONDED LICENSED INSURED  BwneheeCceetToCtmt  by Darah Hansen  The writing is on the walls but  it could be a while before the  ' machines are there too.  Student council at Elphinstone and Pender Harbour high  schools have formally requested  the installation of condom  machines in the washrooms at  their schools.  In Gibsons, the students were  asked to conduct a poll at the  schools clarifying a need for the  machines.  "Basically we sent them away  saying 'Do your homework',"  said Betty Hart, president of the  Parent's Advisory Committee  (PAC) at Elphinstone. Hart said  the students were also asked to  ensure both sides of the condom  issue are brought out at the  school so that their peers may  make "an informed decision."  If the survey suggests the  machines are wanted, the PAC  will likely hold a public forum  for parents to discuss the topic,  Hart said.  She added, before any decision is made, die PAC will weigh  the opinions of all interested parties - students, teachers and par  ents.  Hart said at Elphinstone the  need for the machines may not  be as pressing as in other  schools. She said condoms are  available at various locations  near the school including the  mall next door.  We feel it's a decision  best left to  tbe parents'  -Dam Will  In Pender Harbour high  school, principal Dave Witt said  his school is undergoing the  same process as Gibsons.  Witt said the school will not  make a formal comment on the  issue until after it is reviewed by  the PAC. "We feel it's a decision  best left to the parents."  Interest in condom machines  was renewed this year after the  district school board agreed to a  policy that will allow individual  schools the final decision on  whether or not the machines are  necessary.  Students at Chatelech high  school prompted the need for the  board policy after lobbying in  favour of the installation of condom machines for over two  years.  A student survey conducted  last year at Chatelech indicated  by the age of 18, 66 per cent of  male and 100 per cent of female  students have had sexual inter-  course.Of the total population of  the school, spanning ages 13 to  18, <M.2 per cent said they have  had sexual intercourse. Of those,  half, or 51.J per cent, said condoms were used.  According to the same survey,  89.4 per cent of students saw a  need for condom machines to be  installed at the school.Supporters  cited as their concerns unwanted  pregnancies, sexually transmitted  diseases, and especially AIDS.  Chatelech high school's Parents Advisory Committee (PAC)  passed a motion in November  granting the students' request for  condom machines in the school's  bathrooms.  Before the machines become  a reality, final approval must be  granted by the school board.  With Gibsons residents voting yes to a new  public library, it means the library will be able to  stock more items on their shelves and provide  more services.  The library is already branching out to begin  providing the extra services with the installation of  a book-drop at SunnyCrest Mall in Gibsons.  Gibsons Library Board chair Mart;, ret Morrison said the drop-box, located across from SuperValu will be "a permanent fixture," and members  of the Friends of the Gibsons and District Library  will make daily trips lo the box to retrieve books.  "We feel it will help people a lot and Ihey  deserve it," said Morrison.  She cited the support the new 7,500 square  foot library project received in the Nov. 20 municipal election, when 81 per cenl of voters claimed  they were all for paying an $9.50 per residenlial  property per annum to fund the $1..-.-million project.

The lady who answered the  800 number of the BC Transplant Society assured me it was  the health not the age of the  donour that was important. In  the society's leaflet, A Gift For  Life, old folk like you and me,  can always donate corneas, skin  and bone marrow.  Skin? For victims of severe  burns. Perhaps saving a life in  doing so.

"We feel we are paying taxes  through the SCRD and we feel  we would be paying taxes  twice," said councillor Ted  Hume, adding this was another  indicator of the need for one  government on the Coast.  Mayor Eric Small noted, "It  would be a dangerous precedence to support one group over  others."  No parking signs going up  In an effort to discourage  night-time partying at Georgia  Beach, council agreed to accept  administrator Legg's recommendations to direct town staff  to post "no parking between 11  p.m. and 7 a.m." signs on all  parking areas within the park  and to consider installing two  street lights in the park.  Legg said the estimated cost  of lighting the park would be  $3,500.  The town may end up paying  "quite a series of costs replacing  lights," said councillor Hume,  reminding council of what happened when washrooms were  erected at the site���"They were  demolished." He said the lights  would be protected from rock  throwing with cages.

The second phase of construction at the school began  last week in a big way. The end  of the school near the road had  been infringing on the road  allowance and has now-been cut  back.  It will now be completely  remodelled to fit in with the  remainder of the school. The  teachers and students look forward to the completion hopefully in early spring.  The school community  Christmas celebration will take  place on Thursday, Dec. 9.

National cuts shouldn't touch  Sunshine Coast Royal Banks  by Ian Cobb  A Royal Bank spokesman  has said the two retail outlets in  Gibsons and Sechelt shouldn't  be affected by a recent  announcement by the bank and  Royal Trust Ltd. to lop 4,100  positions worldwide.  Merv Fuchs, assistant manager of public affairs  (BC/Yukon), said Dec. 2 that  the Royal Bank is chopping  "3,000 positions as opposed to  people, worldwide" and that  because of re-deployment programs, attrition, early retirement  packages and a halt in hiring,  the number of people put out of  work will be minimal.  "We've got a veiy good program of redeployment," Fuchs  said, adding, "There might be  the odd situation where a severance package will be handed out  but those will be at our more  remote spots."  He said Royal Bank has  "downsized" about 1,500 positions each of the last two years  and "it's had no real affect on  our people."  As for the Gibsons' Sunnycrest Shopping Plaza location  and Sechell Trail Bay Mall locations, they're a part of the Royal  Bank's North Vancouver region  and the only planned closure  Fuchs is aware of is North Van-  couver's Lower Lonsdale  branch is closing and merging  and with the Upper Lonsdale  branch.  Though there will be other  closures and mergers in the  province, he said, no such "closures are planned for that (Sunshine Coast) area, yet."  Sechelt branch manager Jack  Pratt said, "There has been no  indication that we will be reducing staffing compliments on the  Coast."  The only move the banking  institution will make in the next  few months, he said, is a physical one as the Sechelt branch  will move into a new location  beside the Trail Bay Mall in  June.  About 43 people are  employed full-time and part-  time by Royal Bank on the  Coast.

As always, this fleet of carol  ships is really made possible  by Weldwood and International  Forest Products who contribute their crew boats to the  parade.  The carol ships set sail at 5  pm and first sail round the band  village properties, Porpoise  properties and down past Sandy  Hook, Tillicum and Tuwanek.  The fleet then crosses over  and sails down the west side of  the inlet past Sunshine Heights.  Back in harbour, they complete  a grand circle before disembarking at 7pm.  There are prizes for best-decorated boats and all boats are  very welcome to join in the  fleet.  If interested call Trevor  Kirby at 885-2695 for information.

Those of us who procrastinate  everyiyearby saying we are,  going to get it all done early, are  rushing around like mad. We  start every day with a list  clutched in our hand and all the  best intentions. But somehow, it  all comes together and on  Christmas morning, everything  is in place. Most of the craft  sales and bazaars are over, so  now we can settle down to sending our cards, baking, wrapping  presents and hunting for those  last minute stocking stuffers.  It's all part of the holiday season and we probably wouldn't  have it any other way.  Perhaps one of the greatest  challenges we face in life is  raising our children. From the  time they are born, we teach,  guide and nurture them. We try  to instill honesty, decency and  integrity into these little people  that we are given responsibility  for. It is not an easy task, partic-  sechett dumber notes  ularly in light of what we see  happening around us in our  world today. Therefore, when  they have a victory, large or  small, we have cause to. feel, a  greal sense of pride and accom-.  plishment.  Such was the case last week  when we witnessed our eldest  son, Gen-y, receive his Master's  Degree in Education Administration. Suddenly all the dreams  and aspirations were realized,  the frustrations and anxieties  forgotten. All the PTA meetings, the 5 am hockey games,  the after-grad chaperoning, the  numerous heart-to-heart talks  made it all worthwhile. Yes  Mom and Dad, there is a light at  the end of the tunnel.  Every Tuesday night, 13  young ladies, five years old,  gather together for an hour at  the hall under the guidance of  Sparkle, Tinker Bell and Firefly.  Intriguing? They are called the  Davis Bay Sparks, a pre-Brown-  ie group under the umbrella of  the Girl Guides.  They meet to leam promises,  do crafts and other interesting  things. They marched in the  Remembrance Day parade and  will be singing carols in tbe  mall. They are Sarami, Katie,  Marion, Kirsten, Robin, Jenna,  Stephanie, Sandy, Juliane,  Natasha, Britt, Amanda and  Sarah.  Everyone in the community  extends their heartfelt and condolences to Eileen Nelsen and  her family on the passing of her  husband Sam on Nov. 25. They  have resided in Davis Bay for  over 20 years and have been a  vital part of the community.  Don't forget the DB/WCCA  meeting this Wednesday night,  Dec. 8 at 7:30 pm. The Dick-  sons will be there to entertain  and lead the group in a sing-along.  This is your chance to hear  and sing the old Christmas carols that we are all so familiar  with and that are such an integral part of an old-fashioned  Christmas. See you there.  by Dianne Evans  Sechelt's Parent-Tot Drop-in  is expanding to offer parents  and tots two morning sessions  per week.

Despite the quick  .response by the Halfmoon Bay  iFire Department, the house at  the government wharf was totally destroyed by the fire and the  most the firemen could do was  to save the neighbouring homes.  It was fortunate that it was not a  windy day or the consequences  may have been much worse.  The family with three young  children must have lost everything. Knowing this neighbourhood, ihere is sure to be some  help forthcoming, particularly at  this time of year when plans  were well underway for Christmas.

Some people think it kind of  cute that the dog follows the kid  to school, but there is nothing  cute about it when several of  them do the same thing. The  point is that they are nearly all  big dogs who, as well as being a  nuisance, use the play areas on  which to leave their mess.  golden lifelines  Makes it most unpleasant, particularly when kids slip and fall  on it.  Arena situation  It has been interesting to see  the turn of events in this area  regarding the ice arena. When  the first voting took place  regarding the Bay's involvement  in the construction of the arena,  this area voted against it, mainly  because there were not many  young families in the area who  would ever use the facility, and  most of the residents felt that  they paid enough taxes without  additional ones. Now it seems  that the only area which voted in  favour this time was Halfmoon  Bay, good indication of the  influx of new young families  who now outnumber the older  residents.  How times change.  by Joyce Ostry  On Dec. 9 the annual Christmas dinner will be served at  12:30 pm. There will be a New  Year's Eve party and I've more  on that next week. This is the  time of year to renew your  membership. If you are housebound, phone 885-3313 to leam  how you might renew.  In the Nov. 22 column I  mentioned that the RRAP program - Residential Assistance  Program - will no longer exist  on Dec. 31, 1993.  The weekend of Nov. 5 Dave  Kapinsky and L.B. Ostry, both  directors of Sunshine Coast  Seniors Housing, attended a  conference of the BC Non-Profit Housing Association in Richmond.  It is unlikely that seniors and  or small communities of less  than 5,000 will receive any  funding for new residences.  Our area has a higher ratio of  seniors residences to general  population, so it exceeds the  prescribed needs. Funding for  additional housing must meet  the requirement of the Municipal Act.  On May 19, 1992 the  province amended section 945  of the municipal act by Bill 20,  adding new subsection 2.1  which states: "A Community  Plan must include housing policies of the local government  respecting affordable, rental  housing and special needs hous-  i-.�� ��a  ing.  According to the Minister of  Municipal Affairs, Recreation  and Housing, the Hon. Robin  Blencoe attempts the answer to  the question of "Why are housing policies needed at the community level?"  He states that the provisions  of affordable and appropriate  housing is basic to the livability  and character of BC communities, ad the importance of the  role played by local government  in facilitating the supply and  maintenance of this housing is  Friday & Saturday, DeclO& 11  %i\OAN_  OWNSUHPaUS IM/lUgCjjlMOM.��� HI. 11*2  NextGenenl Meeting  Crib  luKKjulftn  Wdjpm  Meat Draw  tmySclurh/lprn  GIBSONS  Hwy. 101 ��� 886 2411  Triday & Saturday, Dec 10 &ll  Gary with friends  Kara oke  imtwrdmy Omfyx Roast Beef Buffet  l^u_rilutM6*241la-rbia^a_b.i1iurid*Wt��lwiiuuii  TW~m*immm~ laW WtaT-W   a*a*��*aT ���   ���   aT��a_aJ   ���aa-*******-�� *���***���_T|  ��� tn** WWI VB<~IPIIWWI  ^t>_0----a>7J-3-0.7_OfM  WP ntmmlT^^mWWS %-W '  OWN SUNDAYS II -9 "KITCHEN OPEN MON.

Local governments are being  asked to cooperate with provincial government and with the  private and non-profit sectors, to  help preserve and expand the  stock of affordable, rental and  special needs housing within  their communities.  I'm not a senior (yet), but as  a disabled person, I'm extremely interested in housing needs. I  know that a disabled mother of  two teenage boys is finding a  suitable home nearly impossible  to do and needs (and has  received help from BC Housing).

Now you could be a guest if  you are thinking about joining this active  club.  The Lions Community Park is open to all  for picnics, rail hiking, bird watching etc.  but they need more help and if you think that  this might be just right for you, give any  Lion or the above a call for more info.

Scouts, cubs and beavers  The Beavers had a great time last Sunday  afternoon shooting bow and arrows at the  local archery club. Thanks fellows for the  donation.

There is room for one more  beaver and lots more room for parents.  Please come if you can. For further info contact leader William Sutherland at 883-2284.

They  won't fix it until spring, according to wharfinger Vera Grafton,  but for now it's tied up securely  by strong rope.  Rain is a blessing to Egmon-  sters like Murray and Tina  Ramsey, as it thawed their  frozen water pipes. Larry  Campo had Lyle Forbes and his  backhoe in to deal with his  frozen line.  Pool tourney  Eight players racked 'em up  at the Backeddy last Saturday in  Egmont Marina's 5th Semiannual pool tournament. Will  power was tested along with  skill, as players progressed  from beers to shooters even  before the contest began.  Guy Dowd carried off the  palm - a trophy and two  Backeddy sweatshirts. Brian  Parrott brought home the runner-up trophy with a handsome  shirt he picked out in my size.  He also made the best shot of  the whole tournament, accord  ing to Diane:  spinning around  an opponent's ball to send his  own into the pocket.  Petition  The local petition asking for  access to private lines has gone  in to BC Tel; thanks to all who  signed it at Bathgate's and elsewhere. A private telephone line  is needed for emergency alert  services like Lifeline. By the  way, a recent writeup about the  petition which said that three  older people died in Egmont in  the past "month" was in error:  it should have said "year."  Egmonsters at large  Elaine Griffith is running a  contest in a free quarterly publication called Allies. Pick up a  copy at the Community Hall or  Egmont School; in Pender,  from Water and the Wind.  Read her short article proposing  a simpler and better voting system (and any of the other neat  pieces in the paper). Then  grade her article like an essay:  A, B, C, D, or whatever.

Trower, through the persona  of his lead character, Terry  Belshaw, has done an enviable  job of representing a green kid  turned loose in the BC logging  camps of the 1950's.  Terry is above all believable.  He is neither a super hero, nor a  smart assed-genius, nor does he  speak with a 60-year-old's wisdom. Through Trower's prose,  Terry is nineteen and keenly  aware of the fact. He is a young  man who has a lot to learn about  life in the BC woods and about  his own limitations.  The setting, Minstrel Island,  located about two-thirds the way  up the Inside Passage, and Grogan's Cafe in particular are  described as only one who as  experienced such places can.  Things are as rough and raw as  many such places remain to this  day. As well, the book's supporting cast of reprobates, stalwarts, voluptuous women and  psychopathic thugs all take their  roles to heart, blending into the  story like so many trees in the  forest. Each character has his or  her own past which they don't so  much conceal as decline to  divulge. Every once in a while,  however, tantalizing bits of these  secondary stories glint through.  Through the course of the  book, Terry lives and learns. We  watch him gain a trial-by-fire  confidence in his abilities as a  logger while at the same time  noting his budding recognition of  the destruction logging inevitably  Grogan's  Cafe  cover  illustration  by Roger  Handling.  brings. In truth, Terry never truly  accepts his role as a lumberjack,  but he keeps in check a nagging  urge to become a writer.  If there is a down side to the  Grogan's Cafe, it might be in the  occasional missed moment.  There is, for example a scene  where Terry discovers his alcoholic father dead in a skid-row  hotel room on Vancouver's East  Side. His father, a gone-to-  fumes journalist, is slouched in  death over his old Underwood  where he had been Hying to type  a thought to paper for the last  time.  "Perhaps Dad had left some  sort of a message." thinks Terry  before concluding "It was only  gibberish that made no sense  whatsoever."  While Terry tries to describe  his feelings at that moment,  something is missing. It's a  potential powerful moment  which sort of peters out. Beyond  one or two similar instances the  only dip in reading is that the  book, at 227 pages, is not nearly  long enough. The ending begs  for a sequel, however, so there is  hope.  In all Grogan's Cafe is an  excellent read, containing all the  elements of a modem day bestseller while remaining true lo the  1950's lifestyle of the BC'log-  ging camps. Also included in Ihe  back is an interesting glossary of  logging terms.  Trower, himself a former logger has eight books of poetry to  his name and contributed to  Rough and Ready times: A History of Port Mellon by Ellen  Frith. With Grogan's Cafe, he  has proven himself as a prose  writer to be reckoned with - and  read. The novel is published by  Harbour Publishing.

In the corner, a collection of  bobbins and a tape measure sit  next to a sewing machine facing the window.  "I have my fabrics all over  my cutting room at home," says  Schneller. "It's almost like  sculpting. The fabric takes on  its own life."  A collection of clothes from  a recent fashion show hangs  nearby: a "cow coat" in a Hol-  stein pattern, a man's shirt in  printed silk, a woman's evening  jacket in flashes of gold and  bronze.  A European-trained designer  and tailor, Schneller has been  making clothes in Gibsons for  about two years now, first from  her home and now from a work  space at the back of Quayworks  Gallery.  "Sewing a straight seam is  experience," she comments.  Fitting a person is art.  While growing up in Germany, says Schneller, her forays into sewing weren't that  unusual: "The very first thing  anybody does is an apron. I  think it's international."  In fact, she describes many  of those early efforts as "quite  terrible":  "My mom used to finish my  hand sewing because I just  hated it. At that time I didn't  have the patience."  As the daughter of parents  who owned a beauty salon,  however, Schneller had plenty  of early exposure to the world  of fashion and appearances.  "I didn't want to become a  hairdresser, so design was the  next thing," she comments.  Starting at 17, Schneller  apprenticed as a seamstress for  Designer Sabine Schneller stands with one of her creations.  Jane Seyd photo  three years with a master tailor  in Rastatt, Germany. There, her  work ranged from clothes for  people who had special physical requirements to luxury  items for special occasions  "where people don't want to  run into their duplicates."  Later, working for a men's  tailor for a year, she learned the  finer points of inside jacket  pockets, straight lines and the  way a pair of pants should fall.  Eventually opening her own  business on a Canadian Forces  Base she did everything from  altering uniforms to sewing on  badges: "The night before a  parade they would all swamp  me."  Nowadays, in her Sunshine  Coast designs, Schneller makes  everything from an $80 pair of  pants to $5000 wedding dresses  to clothes for people who have  trouble finding things in their  dimensions.  There are a few rules  involved. For instance, she  doesn't sell to store's and she  refuses to sew synthetic fabrics:  "I hate polyster wilh a passion."  The process starts with picking out some fabric swatches,  then moves to taking measurements and creating a pattern.  Over the years, Schneller has  created more patterns than she  has room to keep. "I toss them,"  she says, "but I remember  them." she says.  Admittedly, making clothes  is a highly personal service. "If  I don't feel it's going to look  good on a person, I will refuse  to make it," says Schneller.  Her eventual goal is to make  someone feel good as well as  look good through her clothes.  "People should notice you," she  says, "but not because of what  you're wearing."  The hardest jobs, she says,  are ones for people who aren't  comfortable with themselves to  begin with: "...if you're not  happy with your body, it's very  hard for me to please you."  While designing tricks can  enhance certain physical features or downplay others, "I  can't change you from a size 16  to a size 8," says Schneller.  "That's impossible."  Meanwhile, she has a matter-of-fact attitude to the fashion business which is behind so  many expectations: "It's an  industry that creates jobs and  makes money."  Of the recent trend to recycling of styles from the 60s and  70s, "it's almost as if they've  run out of new ideas," she says.  However, "you hardly see  anybody who's done the 70s  wearing these pants," she comments.  But while eschewing grunge  and bell-bottoms, Schneller  says she does incorporate some  of the fashion influences into  her own creations.

Thursday, Dec. 16 featuring actress-playwright  Caitlin Hicks and guitarist Len Hill. A successful  evening at Chez Philippe Restaurant prompted  plans for another show.  Stories for a Winter Solstice is a collection of  winter and holiday stories centering on three  women: Gertie, a disabled woman with cerebral  palsy who describes her feelings at the birth of her  normal child; Therese, who takes us on a journey  from her child's birth lo "my first Christmas with  Rachel" to five years later when Rachel wanders  down a snowy hillside and follows the dogs onto  the ice; The Little Match Girl, the story of a  woman who traces her childhood Christmases  back to her town of Cornucopia, a winter wonderland so beautiful it has inspired Christmas songwriters and storytellers for centuries.  An encore reading will follow: of ice painter  Gord Halloran's "Tommy", a journey of one family and their relationship with ice, their mother and  Niagara Falls.  The evening begins at 7 pm with special holiday desserts created by Mark Safioles and Natasha  Gellatly.  Caitlin Hicks was recently featured at the Storytelling Festival at Rockwood Centre in October  with some stories from a new work called To that  Sister Place. She is currently working on Singing  lhe Bones, to be produced in March on the Coast.  Guitarist Len Hill recently played lead guitar  for Bob Carpenter at the Roberts Creek Hall. He  has also recorded with local singer John Marian on  his most recent CD, Pulling For The Woods.

Only artist's colour remains constant  trom page 1  If there is a dark side to the  art, she says, "It's not premeditated."  In the studio behind her  house, the levels Fritsch has  passed through on her way to  discovering her present style are  readily visible.  Board and stretched canvas  stack against each other on the  floor, the landscapes far in the  rear.  On the easel is a half finished  painting. It's the start of a new  series.  Looking at it, she's not sure  if she should be wilder in her  imagery or tone it down. She  looks for a balance in the composition.  She's trying new techniques  in her work, changing the style  slightly to keep moving for  ward.  She shrugs when asked what  direction her art is taking her.  There's only one constant in her  work, she says.  "I think I will always love  colour."

REAL  ESTATE  NEWS  By Jon  McRae  IMOULD YOU  RIMODIL OR MOVIf  Your family has outgrown  your home on the  Sunshine Coast, but you  love the neighbourhood  and schools, and you  have established roots  that make it hard to  move. Is remodeling the  solution?  Before you jump into a  major renovation project,  get some idea of the casts  involved, ask your Realtor  if your plans would over-  improve the house for the  neighbourhood, making it  impossible for you to get  your money back if you  must resell anytime soon.  Talk to friends who have  remodeled their homes to  get a true picture of what  you might expect when  dealing with contractors.  Can the work be  completed around your  family? How disruptive  will it be to your lives  and for how long?  Remodeling a home is a  major undertaking, and  may not be the best  solution to your space  needs.

Joel Johnstone  photo  Pender Grade 11 student  co-authors hockey book  There's a 42-year-old writer  in Winnipeg who's glad he  caught the eye of a publisher's  son two years ago.  The result was a resurrected  manuscript and a published  work entitled Local Heroes: The  Story of The Western Hockey  League.  Richard Lapp of Winnipeg  submitted a draft of the book to  Harbour Publishing, not  renowned for its association  wilh sports writers.  Lapp's efforts made it to the  rejection pile but 16-year-old  Silas White, son of Harbour  Publishing's Howard White,  thought the book had potential.  "It was basically a mess at  the beginning," Silas recalled  this week, two weeks since the  book has been released across  Western Canada.  "There was no vision or organization," the Pender Harbour  Secondary School Grade 11 student said.  Yet, between Lapp's persistence and White's love of hockey, the two teamed up and rewrote what is now a 240-page  chronicle of the WHL, with histories of each team that's been  involved in the league, from the  Billings Bighorns to the Winnipeg Warriors.  The real eye-grabber of the  book, however, is the biographies of players that shone in the  WHL, with many moving onto  the National Hockey League and  even greater careers.  Lapp's original manuscript  contained much of the material  used and "with my hockey  knowledge, I was able to decide  which players we should put in."  Included on the lower left  cover of the book is a picture of  a player that will leave hockey  fans saying, "1 never would have  guessed it was him."  The picture is of NHL great  Lanny MacDonald sans his  trademark walrus-like moustache.  "We had to sweet talk  Lanny's mother to pry that one  loose," White recalled.  Howard White claimed he  was skeptical, at first, of his son  taking on the project.  "I didn't see any harm in trying it, but after 1 saw how much  time he was putting in I began to  be afraid he was setting himself  up for a big disappointment," he  said. However, with the finished  product on the market and selling well, including 200 copies  sold in a store in Brandon, Man.,  White is proud of his sons foresight.  "There's not a publisher in  Canada who wouldn't like to  have that book now," he said.  As for his next move, White  said he's going to concentrate on  finishing school and doesn't  expect to be starting up a new  book project.  However, the chances of  "rescuing" another work from  the reject pile isn't out of the  question, he said.  Another impact expected  from the release and expected  success of the book is a flood of  manuscripts from hockey and  other sports writers to Pender  White said in 1982 his  father's company published  Tony Gallagher's chronicling of  the Canucks nm for the Stanley  Cup ind believes Lapp became  aware of the Pender Harbour  publisher through that book.  A "flood" of sports manuscripts came in then and White  said he expects the same again.

The closure came on the day  about 25 local prawn boats were  setting out to start the opening  day of prawn fishing in local  waters, many of them to the area  closed.  "They (the pulp mills)  should compensate the fishermen. They (the mills) polluted  it. The prawn fishermen are  pretty mad," stated shrimp fisherman Danny Arundel from his  vessel the Tanya Ray which is  now tied to the Gibsons Wharf.  10 YEARS AGO  Work on the new Gibsons  Marina was fully underway bul  the related marina hotel was said  to be temporarily delayed.

CALL U5I  *u  :heh  Ruth MI-8M7  , Gibsons  Carole ��l606tS  Midge  MB  IMO  Gibson credit union continues to grow  by Ian Cobb  Thanks to burgeoning assets  over the past five years, the Sunshine Coast Credit Union SCCU)  is moving up in Ihe world.  The credit union, with three  branches on the Coast, has experienced an average annual growth  rate of 21 per cent for the last  five years - and because of Ihis,  the SCCU has decided to build a  new Gibsons retail location on  Highway 101 (next to the Gibsons Motor Inn).  The financial institution's  staffing compliment has also  grown by about 10 in that time,  with about 45 people now  employed. Credit union general  manager Dale Eichar said they  opted to move their Gibsons retail  location and  administrative  offices because the 2.3-acre site  will mean more space, better  access and parking. "It's going to  be a very impressive building and  we're looking forward to its completion," said Town of Gibsons  administrator Dan Legg.  Eichar said the new 13.000  square foot building, which will  feature a 5,000 squaie foot retail  operation, a 2,500 square foot  administration office and about  5,500 square feet of storage  space, will cost "in the excess ol  $1.5-million."  In addition, the new credit  union building, expected to be  completed by June '94, will only  sit on one-third of the 2.3-acres  and the rest of the space "will be  looked at later for future development."

I meeting.  Ian Cobb pholo  Christmas  Gift Certificates  Available  886-3381 Beside Gibsons Medical CI  LRUP members disgruntled by delays  from page I  However, only the committees looking al jobs, old-growth,  wildlife, wilderness, recreation  and forestry had Iheir reports  ready for discussion, with water  a week away from completion.  "I jusl want lo get this done,"  said LRUP member and wilderness subcommittee chair George  Smith.  His demands echoed everyone else around the table, including LRUP chair Barry Miller,  SCFD resource planning officer.  "The committee doesn't have  an awful lot of time," he said.  "We've got to face the stark reality that time is marching on."  Many of the committee members appeared disgruntled, perhaps because the adoption and  review of the minutes of their  previous meeting took an hour to  complete, and by the end of the  meeting the group decided to  meet today (Dec. 6) and Dec. 8  to begin reviewing subcommittee  reports and aim toward hashing  out a consensus.  "We're gathering technical  information with these subcommittees and (when the reports aie  complete) the core committee  must plow through what they  come up with," said SCFD district manager Greg Hemphill.  With the completion of the  reports, he said, "now we can get  down to the work."  Another main source of the  frustrations evident in the group  is the length of time they've been  working on the LRUP���now  rearing four years.  "We've been dragging out  crap and people's gripes and  we've been doing that for four  years," growled Howe Sound  Pulp and Paper LRUP member  David Chance during the drawn  out acceptance of the previous  meetings minutes debate.  Area E LRUP representative  and water subcommittee chair  Chuck Weatherill declared the  process wouldn't be needed if  the government had heeded its  own advice from tlie past to not  fiddle with the upper country  around the Tetrahedron.  "What really annoys me is  Medical community  looks to reduce  Caesarean births  by Nancy Moote  Expecting a baby? There's a  good chance the 'birth will  involve major surgery.  More than one in five BC  births is by caesarean section -  three times as many as in 1970,  and the fourth highest rate in the  world. The rate is slightly higher  for Sunshine Coast women.  Everyone agrees that those  numbers are far too high, but the  question is, what to do aboul it.  According to a recent provincial task force study, the common practice of "once a caesarean, always a caesarean" is a  major reason for the rise. Yet  there is little medical reason for  this practice.  A major recommendation of  the task force is that vaginal birth  after caesarean (VBAC) be practiced wherever possible. But St.  Mary's Hospital in Sechelt continues to prohibit VBACS.  That policy is making some  doctors unhappy, said hospital  chief of staff Dr. Kirstie Overhill. "There's a great deal of controversy, and a lot of discussion  about it right now."  There are several reasons for  the "no VBAC" policy, Overhill  said. Like many rural BC hospitals, St. Mary's has no resident  obstetrician and the delivery  room dales from the 1950s. The  Coast's visiting obstetrician, Dr.  Howard Pendleton, told Overhill  the facilities are inadequate.  As well, Ihe Society of Obstetricians and Gynecologists of  Canada recommends that hospitals offering VBACs be prepared  to perform an emergency caesarean within 30 minutes, in case  the old scar ruptures. That risk is  about 1 in 200. St. Mary's  doesn't have the staff to provide  such speedy emergency surgery.  The task force study has questioned the need for the 30 minute  guideline. And Gibsons physician Dr. John Farrer said local  doctors are divided on the issue,  with some saying that if the hospital is not safe for VBACs, it  shouldn't be doing any births at  all.  Farrer said such policied are  often driven by a hospital's fear  of lawsuits if a birth goes  this whole process was gone  through 20 years ago and was  totally ignored," he said.  Fortunately for the LRUP  committee, the day after the  meeting, PAS Vancouver  Regional Protected Areas Team  manager Graham Boothroyd  reported lhat the group can relax  a bit because the provincial process has slowed down.  "If that report is produced  within the first couple of months  of '94, it should satisfy the system," he said.  Boothroyd said the LRUP  wrong."What a lot of these  things come down to is who gets  sued," he said. "It ends up being  not a medical decision."  But Overhill said that while  liability was considered when  the policy was decided, "personally it's not a lawsuit issue."  The hospital has identified  obstetrics as a priority, but this  year a request for a million dollar  birthing room was rejected.  Overhill is looking into other  improvements which can be  afforded, but in the meantime  local doctors usually recommend  risky births ��� including VBACS -  be done at Grace Hospital in  Vancouver.  However, Overhill said, many  women choose to stay on the  Coast and deliver by caesarean  instead.  Largely because risky births  are referred to other hospitals, St.  Mary's has a lower caesarean  rate than many BC hospitals:  17.4 per cent. But according to  the task force study, Sunshine  Coast women have a 23.1 per  cent caesarean rate overall.  Approximately 250 babies are  bom to Sunshine Coast families  each year. Last year, 97 of them  were born at Grace Hospital,  referred there because Ihe births  were considered risky in some  way.  St. Mary's has already implemented a number of the task  force receommendations, including the establishment of perinatal  committees, an audit process to  review every birth and consider  whether surgery could have been  avoided, an iprovement in pain  relief and a reduction in the use  of fetal monitoring equipment.  Other recommendations  include better education for  expectant mothers and increase  in the participation of mid-  wives.But many of these recommendations have been seen  before, in 1985 guidelines issued  by the Society of Obstetricians  and Gynaecologists of Canada.  And the guidelines often  haven't been followed, whether  it's becuase hospitals can't  afford the needed changes or  because doctors are afraid of  lawsuits.  process is just the start of the  governments thrust lo transform  12 per cent of the land mass into  protected areas, with there being  60 other areas, smaller and larger  than the Tetrahedron, proposed  for protected status.  "Then there are about 20  approved study areas as pointed  out by cabinet and then there are  the actual parks."  The Caren Range has also  been suggested for protected  status, he said.  Currently, six per cent of BC  is protected.  ESMMD  COMMUTER AIRLINES INC.  SALE! SALE! SALE!
