 par..*."1'"  Victoria,  V8V *A"  COAST^NEWS.  50 cents per copy on newsstands  Region  seeking  watershed  lease  by Jane Seyd  An unusual move towards  controlling logging in the  Chapman Creek watershed has  been made by the local regional district, becoming the latest  in a series of exchanges  between the SCRD and Ihe  Ministry of Forests.  On Thursday, directors  voted lo seek a lease from Die  department Crown lands on the  upper Chapman watershed  area, including part of the  Tetrahedron Plateau.  Currently, the watershed is  managed under a protocol set  out between the Ministry of  Forests, Ihe water management  branch and Crown lands - a situation similar in most other  provincial community watersheds.  Only two B.C. regional districts - Vancouver and Victoria  - have significant control over  activity within Iheir watersheds.  Bul directors said Thursday  they want lo change lhat.  "We may be the first regional district other than the  (Greater Vancouver Regional  Districl) who have done this,"  said director Jeremy Frith, "but  thai doesn't mean we'll be Ihe  last."  Directors said they made the  decision because of continuing  haggles with Ihe Ministry of  Forests over jurisdiction, and  the ministry's decision to continue issuing eutblocks over  regional districl objections.  Frith added that under a  reserve supposedly established  in the 1970s, the area should  have been withdrawn from further industrial activity. "Watershed reserve is a higher factor  than anything else," said Frith.  "There have been some fairly  fudgy interpretations of lhal."  Under Ihe lease being  sought, the regional dislricl  would have final say on activities within the watershed,  including logging.  But getting thai control may  not be straightforward.  Richard Webber, lands officer for Crown lands, said thai  while the regional district was  entitled lo apply for a lease, it  is a "somewhat unusual"  requesl: "They'd have lo have  some very good arguments for  us to do that."  Also needed would be Ihe  approval of the Forest Service.  Said Webber, "It's unlikely the  Ministry of Forests would  endorse that sort of proposal."  Two blocks in the lower  Chapman watershed are scheduled for logging next spring by  International Forest Products.  Currently, the Vancouver  regional district has a 999-year  lease on most of its watershed,  first granted in the 1920s. Logging in Ihe watershed is managed wilh agreements between  the water board and Ihe Mir  islry of Forests.

Joel Johnstone photo  Rockwood expansion deal signed and sealed  by Jane Seyd  A donation of $10,000 from a Shornecliffe resident  towards Rockwood Lodge's proposed expansion kicked  off a fundraising drive for construction of the new building lasl week, now that a real estate deal has been officially reached for purchase of the property.  Facing a recent deadline on purchase of adjacent land,  the Rockwood Society has agreed to an arrangement with  Spani Developments to acquire the six-acre parcel.  Under the agreement, the developer plans to build  condominiums on Ihe top four acres of the property. The  bottom 2.5 acres will go to Rockwood for Ihe expansion.  Total land cost was $440,000, which Rockwood had  hoped to raise in order to purchase Ihe entire property  Under the new agreement, Rockwood will buy the  bottom parcel of land for $181,000 from Spani Developments, with a down payment of about $13,000. Construction of lhe hpansion is expected lo cost aboul $1.5 million, said Rockwood society presidenl Kay Little.  This week, Ihe society received Ihe $10,000 unsolicited donation towards that from a Sechelt man who had  known the original occupants of Rockwood. In giving the  money, the man cited his belief in the cultural and historical value of Rockwood to the community, said Little.  "II was a complete surprise lo us."  The donor said he wishes to remain anonymous.  So far, $350,000 of federal funding towards the building has received "concept approval" from Community  Futures in Ottawa. The society must come up with  matching funds for the grant.  "We'll be doing some very serious fundraising," said  Little."... It's a big dream, but it's not unreachable."  Among additions Rockwood hopes lo make are a  sprung dance floor, rehearsal space, a place for weavers  and potters to store equipment, artists' classrooms and  accommodation for in-residence programs.  Seniors cry foul over housing defects  by Darah Hansen  The new owner says the  building's construction is nothing short of a disgrace.  The developer says it's just  normal wear and tear.  That's been the dialogue  between the Highpoint Condominium owners' committee and  the building's developer since  Bill White moved in a year ago  and found a new home didn't  necessarily mean easy living.  White, an 88-year-old widower,  moved into his condo  after fearing he     ______  would lose his  driver's licence and  could no longer get  around his home of  30 years in Pender  Harbour. He found  the location - 5630  Trail Avenue,  Sechelt - perfect,  close to both the  hospital and down-       town.    And    he  could afford the price: $116,000  for a roomy bachelor suite.  The discoveries he made over  the nexl few months weren't  Ihings he expected to find in a  building barely three years old,  he said.  First it was the water hooked  up backwards in the laundry  room. Then it was a stove fan  and light in the kilchen that  wouldn't work unless the main  lights were on. Then he found  his shower leaked and Ihe blinds  in Ihe kitchen faced backwards.  Six other tenants in Ihe building, all senior citizens, reported  similar complaints: leaking roofs  and shower doors, a garage tap  governed by Ihe neighbour's  water source, missing handrails  leading up front steps. There's  also no on-site mailbox - something that is required in a building with five or more tenants -  forcing some residents lo lake a  taxi to Ihe post office because  they can't walk that far.  It's doesn't seem like much,  admitted White, but to someone  'We sure don't  want trouble,  but there is a  limit as to what  you can take'  -Bill While  who is elderly, sick and alone, a  leaking roof is a monumental  crisis.  Making matters worse, he  said, he and the other tenants  have had to wait months lo see  repairs from the building's  developer Les Morris of Strata  Corporation V.A.S. Some tenants are still waiting, he said, or  have paid out of their own pock-  els - "and that's jusl not right."  For his part, Morris admitted  there have been problems with  Ihe building, but called White's  _______ descriptions "a little bit far-fetched.  "It's a well-built  building," he said.  "We have to follow  pretty stringent  building codes...  It's been engineered to Ihe hilt."  Morris said  he's seen the list of      complaints    the  owners have put  forward to him and has already  done most of Ihe repairs. He's  also working to install a mailbox  on the premises.  Bul, he said, some of the  changes requested would just be  too costly. "We buill everything  here for a price," Morris said.  Besides, he added, "That's how  Ihey bought il."  Sechelt building inspector  John Wright confirmed that the  building had passed inspection.  But he stressed the building  code looks only for "minimum  standards of construction."  If defects are noi caught in  Ihe inspection, Wright said ihere  is very little he can do after the  fact, short of putting pressure on  the developer to repair them.  In fact, the only real protection against these kinds of  home-owner complaints in BC is  through the New Home Warranty (NHW) office. Set up in 1976  to guard against "shoddy building practices", communications  manager Brian Tweed says the  'not-for-profit' office guarantees  Bill White points out one of several problems he and other residents of Highpoint are contesting. Darah Hansen photo  a high standard of workmanship     written the minister responsible  from developers who register  wilh the organization.  Strata Corporation is not listed with the service.  Meanwhile White is determined to make sure no one has  to go through what he has. He's  for seniors, Elizabeth Cull. He  has also took local MP Ray  Skelly on a personal tour of the  building last Thursday.  "We sure don't want trouble," said White, "bul there is a  limit as to what you can take."  Sechelt  budget  swells  by Stuart Burnside  Taxes will be going up in the  Districl of Sechelt, but perhaps  not for all.  Sechelt council approved its  1993 provisional budget Tuesday and, from that, administrator Art Lew said the municipality expects to increase revenue  by 10 per cent in 1993.  "That's only an increase in  revenues," Lew said on Thursday. "The increase to the average taxpayer, in terms of the  actual increase to his taxes, will  be roughly seven per cent."  Lew said the amount to taxes  paid by a given properly owner  will depend a lot on new property assessments which are now  appearing in Coast mailboxes.  For Ihe average homeowner  whose property assessment has  gone up 25 per cent Ihis year,  the municipal tax increase will  be around seven per cent.  "If (the homeowner) had an  assessment of a five per cent  increase, he would probably be  looking al a decrease in his  tax," Lew said. "Where if an  assessed properly went up 50  per cenl in value, lhal homeowner would be looking at a 20  per cent lax increase."  One of the largest reasons  for the lax hike this year, Lew  said, is the cost of police services. Sechell became responsible for il's own police force following the release of the census  last year, a fact lhat reflects as  an overall increase to the  municipality of 16 per cenl.  The provincial government,  however, will pay for two thirds  of thai this year through grants.  Policing costs have been  largely responsible for forcing  Sechelt expenditures up nearly  one third since 1991, from some  $2.6 million to $3.7 million this  year.

It's going to put an end to a  lot of conflict in the province,  said Clifford Smith, upon  receiving a copy of the ministry's report Thursday afternoon. Though he said he hadn't  had the time to absorb all its  meaning, Smith said his overall  impression of the report was  that it looked like a "good compromise."  Over the past year, the previously inflexible regulation,  which outlines the hours and  minutes of instruction time a  student is required to receive  over a school year, has forced  school boards throughout BC to  come up against teacher's  unions, causing court battles and  bad feelings on both sides.  The new report is more of a  "common sense agreement,"  said Smith, setting out the  required instructional days but  also providing for the seven  "non-instructiona! days" that  leachers have legally contracted  as professional development  days.  Smith said the decision is a  move forward in leadership:  something the ministry's been  reluctant to show in the past.  He said he wishes they had  come to a decision sooner, "It  could have saved hundreds, if  not millions, of taxpayers' dollars (in arbitration and negotiation fees)."  The strongest criticism he's  heard so far, Smith said, is from  colleagues who have remarked  that the government has "sold  the farm to the teachers," choosing to decide against the district  boards. But Smith doesn't agree.  He said it's a decision that had  to be made, "some districts are  really scrambling to break a  deadlock with their unions."  His only criticism, he said is  the avoidance of finding a suitable definition of the term  'instruction'.  "Sooner or later," he said,  "they are going to have to  decide what it is they do with  kids."  Other key players have also  expressed their satisfaction with  the decision, including the BC  Teachers Federation and the  Parent's Advisory Council.  Secretary-treasurer Tim Anderson announced at Tuesday's school  board meeting the finalized funding report for this year based on  September enrolments. There's a net increase of $700,000 in unallocated funds, he said, quickly adding a large percentage of the money  has already been committed to extra staffing and "other" costs.  Anderson also released the ministry rankings of the 1993/94 capi-  tal plan for project requests.  Receiving high priority in the minor project category are seismic  upgrading at both Gibsons and Roberts Creek Elementary schools, an  addition of two classrooms to Halfmoon Bay Elementary and the purchase and installation of 13 portables needed across the district.  Under the "major" project category, additions allowing for  increased student capacity at Elphinstone and Chatelech both  received high priority. So did the construction of a new, 200 student  capacity elementary school.  Elphinstone  Secondary  -NEWS-  Cap College Instructors Teach Grade 12's  A number of senior level courses have now been taught  for an afternoon by Cap College Instructors. The purpose  of these lectures is to get Gr.12 students used to post-  secondary levels of vocabulary and concepts, and  therefore prepare them for life after graduation.  Weekend Camps for Biology and Math Students  Students in Biology 12 and Math 12, over the last two  weekends, have been attending weekend "camps" at  Lord Byng camp, preparing them for the provincial and  scholarship exams.

Have a say on health project spending  Concerned about your Coast community?  Would you like a say in how local governments spend $15,000 in Healthy Community  money, promised in the hopes of making the  Coast a better place to live?  There is a workshop scheduled for Feb.  13 in which residents and local officials will  try to decide how the grant money will best  serve the Coast.  Workshop co-ordinator Beverly Tanchak  said she is hoping people who have already  been involved in the Healthy Community  process will show up to "take action" on the  recommendations of the Healthy Communities study undertaken last year.  "It's an opportunity for interested people  to get together with others, in a forum that  will be facilitated by (five) professionals, to  come up with a double action plan," Tanchak said.  The Healthy Communities study, completed through public meetings with Coast  residents, identified some five areas of resident concern, ranging from improving trans  portation to the environment to recreation  and leisure.  Because there is only $15,000, which  must be matched by the Coast, Tanchak said  it would not be realistic to take on anything  too grand. "Hopefully what we'll come up  with are step plans," Tanchak said. "We'll  begin a process."  The workshop is scheduled to last all day  and will take place at the Sechelt Legion  beginning at 9:30 am. Participants must pre-  register by contacting Tanchak at 885 -2330.  Harm from global warming measured in degrees  by Jane Seyd  The threats of global warming and climate change aren't  just cause for concern in terms  of polar ice melt and creeping  deserts. In fact, they may be a  lot closer to home.  So says a recent report by  scientists at the University of  British Columbia, which predicts thai such changes could  also have a dramatic affect on  coastal BC fisheries.  Although changes in climate  and temperature are usually  quite complicated, significant  global warming is likely to be  bad for traditional fisheries, say  the scientists.  If  average  temperatures  increase by several degrees Celsius, salmon slocks are likely to  be reduced through increasing  upper   water  temperatures,  reduced ocean oxy-       gen and changes to  river flows which  will affect returning patterns of  spawning fish, says  the report. Shellfish and herring  would also be  affected.  The report also speculates  that under such a scenario, local  fish could be replaced by a  migration of warmer-water  species from the southern part of  the Columbia River.  'Not evety  increase in  temperature  means disaster'  Dick Beamish, senior scientist at Fisheries' Pacific Biological Station in Nanaimo, says that  while it's difficult to make such  predictions, the  issue is of genuine  concern.  Most   people  think of global  warming in terms  of   temperature  ____^     increase,    says  Beamish, but it's  really a change lo (lie entire ecosystem. "To me that's very  important," he says.  Interest in the issue is now  growing in all salmon-producing  countries, says Beamish.  In BC, salmon stocks on Ihe  Fraser River are likely to be  most affected by any changes,  he says, because the Fraser is  already at the southern-most  range of most salmon species,  including sockeye, pink and  chum.  But not every increase in  temperature means disaster. For  instance, in the 1980s, slight  warming increased ocean food  production, resulting in greater  survival of North Pacific salmon  stocks.  If average temperatures go up  by two to five degrees, however,  "It'll have major affects on the  eco-syslem," says Beamish.  "It's a pretty major increase in  temperature."

Subdivision fees for developers - formerly set  by the Municipal Act - have recently been turned  over to local governments, who handle the planning applications. And guess what? They're rising.  In tne case of the regional district, fees will rise  from a former $25 to $700 for tbe first parcel cre  ated and from a former $10 to $150 for each additional parcel for most subdivisions.  That compares to proposed increases in Sechelt  to $1,000 and $500 and Gibsons fee hikes to  $1,500 and $200 for similar services.  The changes to the application fees, approved at  the Jan. 14 board meeting by directors, are intended to reflect the actual cost to local government of  processing applications, including staff time.

Under the community programs branch of  Ihe attorney general's department, the program recently received $18,000 in order to  expand its services to victims involved in the  court system.  New facilities away from the police station have been donated by the Sechelt Indian  Band in the band's old administration complex, which allows for greater privacy, says  program co-ordinator Rita Petrescu.  Most of the work done by Victim Witness  services is with victims of wife assault, and  both child and adult sexual assault cases.  Not all assaults take place on the Coast,  though. Especially in the case of adult survivors of child sexual abuse, the offences  may well have happened a long time ago in  other places, says Petrescu.  Still, the total number of cases dealt with  by the program is up by nearly 50 per cent,  she says. "We had a huge jump last year."  Petrescu says it's hard to tell if that's  because of an actual increase in assaults or  an increase in the numbers of people who are  willing to talk about it. "That's a question  we all ask ourselves," she says. "1 would  guess it's because people are reporting  more...  On the other hand, Petrescu says she's  often surprised al Ihe number of wife  assaults handled by Transition House which  don't get reported. Of Ihe cases she does  know aboul, she says, "I would say they are  probably more violent and there's more  often the threat of weapons being used."  A full-time counsellor has recently been  hired by Communily Services with funding  from the provincial government, providing a  much-needed free counselling service for  agencies on Ihe Coasl.  Volunteers are also currently needed. A  training program is provided for mature  adults who feel they have some patience,  empathy and time lo offer, says Petrescu.

Under the ominous acronym  of SLORC, the State Law and  Order Restoration Council, the  government is headed by General Ne Win and has been since  1962, the video explains.

Gibsons marine zone debate flares  around Smitty's Barge business  Got a  by Charles Hart  Commitment to a working harbour continues to  be the subject of debate in Gibsons and the differences of opinion among council members persist,  even as the town tries to come to grips with a definition for a new official community plan.  Conflicting visions clashed at town hall again  Tuesday as the subject of marine zoning for Smitty's Barge operation came up for debate. The business is non-conforming in its current location just  outside the harbour marine zone.  A study of various other sites failed to come up  with a location that was more suitable, for environmental and access reasons, and planner Susan  Stratis recommended the marine zone be expanded  to make the barge business legal where it is now.  Both Councillors Ed Sleeves and Walter Brad-  shaw said they would not support the marginal  expansion of the marine zone, instead favouring a  spot zoning within the existing recreational zone.  They said residents on the overlooking bluff  deserved protection from further marine-based  businesses being able to move into the area without prior approval of council.  "Once you expand the Ml zone you're going to  create a lot more area in front of residents that may  not be acceptable," said Sleeves.  Cllr. Ted Hume objected to the stance, saying  he is not in favour of spot zoning. "I'm all in  favour of a working harbour," he said. "And what  has just been stated shows we won't allow anything without taking a good look at it.  "We could have spot zones scattered throughout the whole area. I can't support that."  Cllr. Bradshaw suggested thai the existing  marine zone is adequate, but the view was overruled by federal and provincial review agencies  which pointed to issues such as sensitive eel grass  beds, water depth and navigation concerns as  examples of the inadequacy of the current zone.  Mayor Eric Small said he tended towards supporting an expansion of the zone, but asked council to delay a decision until the official communily  plan has been settled. "At this stage, why don't we  pass a resolution to support a way to legitimize the  business, but defer a decision on moving the line  or spot zoning until after the OCP process is complete," he said.  In the absence of Cllr. John McNevin, the  planning committee backed the recommendation,  indicating their wish to make Ihe business a legal  use in its present location, but delaying a decision  on what zoning choice would best accommodate  the use.  jCRUISii  IHOUOMYSL   When the men in white come for you in  the Caribbean, it only means dinner is ready.  ^r_r/em^^/mvfr-f  ABtav i is to occfied ya* eapuctatkre  Group .Prices Available  5517 Wharf SL, Sechelt 885-8964 or toll free 1 979-8584  WILSON CREEK PLAZA  MetcUatUl  Would like to  congratulate  Irene Dockery  Winner of the  Christmas  Hamper Draw  Sample  Sale  Rosemarie's  Boutique  New stock arriving  Feb. 15th  Phone or drop by for  New Spring & Summer  Catalogue  Tues. - Thurs. &  Most afternoons  6395 Norvan Rd.

ItMI-arr Wl, Okaaaaa  Mma.T-n.rea., mem  apm: rri*n fern ��a>. (aMaater Mana ��� a>a�� Coast News, January 18, 1993  opinion  Media hawks  pressing in on  Wilson  "The amount of ink that will be expended on Gordon  Wilson in the next week or two will far exceed the journalistic merit of the political pot boiler he now finds himself embroiled in."  Those words were written before the first stories about  the Sunshine Coast MLA's private life and the attendant  media justifications for the political validity of the stories  - abuse of power, poor judgment, public perceptions and  confidence in his leadership - appeared in print.  Such charges could equally be levelled at the media as  it embarks on a frenzy of predictable spin-off stories of  reaction, self-examination and ethical debate.  The currents that shape journalism today see the  tabloid press for the most part pursuing the sensational  and exploiting tidbits for which it is known, while  'respected' broadsheets adopt a voyeuristic tone of political commentary from a dislance, and still run the story on  the front page.  It was clear that rumour of a romantic link between  Wilson and his chief lieutenant, House Leader Judy  Tyabji, had been circulating at the legislature and in the  Victoria press gallery for some time. The intimations,  knowing nods and winks, have appeared in more than  one newspaper column over the last few months as  prominent, disaffected Liberals such as Art Cowie and  David Mitchell have bucked the party line and lashed  their leader.  When it became known that the rumour, for that was  all there was to go on, was about to be trotted out as journalism by a rapacious press, a hook was sought to maintain decorum while milking the story for all its prurient  worth. One by one, the papers of the province rushed into  print with accounts ranging, with few exceptions, from  the scurillous to the banal.  At the same time, TV cameras descended on the Coast  and were promptly shoved into Liz Wilson's face,  demanding to know how she felt about the nasty business  every media outlet in the province, not to be outdone,  was suddenly clamouring about.  Then the reporting that presses the Liberals' worries to  the fore while basking in pillow talk; the subsequent  analysis that presents the rationale on how a rumour suddenly becomes the news sensation of the day.  I All this is said not to excuse or make apology for the  actions or inactions of the opposition leader.  i This is politics. Everyone who takes public office  knows his or her personal life, to some degree, will be on  the line. The ground rules have supposedly shifted along  with the standards of behaviour we expect from our leaders, but the consequences of indiscretion keep reappearing in print for all to see, even if it's no-one else's business.  There will always be those ready to charge that lack of  judgment is a cardinal sin in a politician (despite a legacy  that says it is just as often the norm) and demand a public  accounting. Wilson, knowingly or not, left himself vulnerable to attack from those who would be his moral and  political superiors.  The whole episode serves as a sad reminder of the sliding fortunes of the press - woe betide those in positions  of public power whose concern for appearances slips.  Once an overzealous press is loosed, ethics will always  take a back seat to circulation and the public's tawdry  tastes.  letters  Big Brother out  to get Wilson  They have pulled out all the  slops, they are calling in their  markers, the big brother  machine is out to get you, Gordon Wilson. You are a threat to  the federal gang and the backroom manipulators.  When the Charlottetown  Accord was being rammed into  us by the eastern mafia and the  controlled media, you had the  bravery and the guts to stand up  for the people's rights and wishes.  A few weeks ago a local talk  show host was getting on your  back and praising the Social  Credit gang. It had all the earmarks of a political snow job. I  couldn't believe my ears, here  was this Social Credit hack {  praising the virtues of the Social  Credit gang after all the muck  and mess we went through with  lhat gang.  Well, I guess what else can  you expect from a guy that has  been branded on all four cheeks  with the Social Credit brand.  Yesterday I received a phone  call from a guy who used to do  writing for papers here on the  Coast. He no longer writes for  the local papers, as it seems he  was too opinionated and definitely slanted with the wrong  attitude to be a journalist.  He wanted to know what I  and other people thought about  these stories of Gordon Wilson.  I told him that all I have seen is  a ganging up politically to get  Gordon.  I asked him why he was  inquiring, and he said he was  commissioned by a magazine to  do a story. 1 said how can you  do a story without the true  facts?  He said, it is in all the newspapers. I said that doesn't make  it fact, especially when the  media lied about the Charlottetown and Meech Lake Accord  mess.  He then suggested that Gordon Wilson be removed and  David Mitchell (the guy that  voted 'Yes' for the Charlottetown Accord) be made leader of  the BC Liberal party.  I thought, Holy Cow, this is  the guy that stabbed Gordon in  the back, and I imagine with  orders'from the federal Liberal  attd eastern gang. No consideration for the western voters, not a  hope in hell of ever winning the  wesl for us. The media and the  poison penners and vocalists are  trying to foist this guy on us?  I hope lhe fellow that phoned  me does a story in the magazine,  his credibility here on the Coasl  stinks.  Watch out Gordon, they are  out lo get you, but we are  behind you.  By the way, get tough, kick  David in the ass and throw him  oul of caucus.

There was ever a patient ear  to listen and guide through troubled and confusing times. If you  were told by others something  wasn't fixable or feasible, Don  would almost invariably fix it or  design a tool or system to do  what others said wasn't possible, just because it needed to be  done.

Mmoil  JIM RAWL1NGS0N  Gibsons  Get Gibsons  bypass finished  The lethargic attitude of the  media and Mr. Wilson toward  the new road at Langdale leaves  a lot to be desired.  Going down the present road  is not safe and it is precarious  trying to get onto the highway.  Why on earth we have to put  up with this nonsense and political insanity is beyond most people.  Let's get the road finished so  we can use it.  R.L. JACKSON  Sechelt  Symbolism and history and the American way of war  If you dare to use words such as 'symbolism'  and 'history' in the opening sentence of an opinion  piece designed for popular consumption you run  the risk of leaving yourself without readers before  you get to the second sentence.  And yet to try to make sense of the events of the  day without an appreciation of the role being  played by these academic words is akin to trying a  repair job on your car without a set of wrenches.  Even as the words above were being written a  solemn news announcer on the CNN network has  intoned 'the fear that another Vietnam may be  lurking in the streets of Mogadishu...' Vietnam  itself, though history, has become a symbol for  what must be avoided in military adventurings  today.  It is a symbol for all that is open-ended, vague  and ill-advised about the deployment of troops and  wealth without clear and achievable goals.  Every time military posturing is being considered it is de rigeur for spokesmen to pepper their  utterance with such words as 'clear', 'limited', 'doable', and other newspeak for not getting trapped  in a sinkhole of blorx' and expense with no clear  path through, as happened in Vietnam.  But if the fact that Vietnam was a sinkhole for  military aspirations or imperialism escaped three  American presidents from Kennedy through to  musings  john burnside  Nixon, it shouldn't have. The French fought a thirty-year war against the Vietnamese and went home  in defeat in 1954. That was history a decade before  Lyndon Johnson sent hundreds of thousands of  young Americans to die deadly jungles where war  was fought not according to any blue print available at West Point  Of course, history again , the Americans themselves fought a guerrilla war against the well-  ordered forces of the British in the War of 1812 and  won doing it. But since history is habitually  checked in the foyer when the room of current  events is entered, nothing is available to measure  or anticipate what is to come.  There is nothing of the dry as dust world of  academia about 'symbolism' either. I became  aware of this in the mid-'60s while living about as  far from the newsmaking events as you could get,  whether your idea of cataclysmic developments  were the much vaunted happenings at Haight Ash-  bury or the build up of American troops in the jungles of Vietnam.  But teaching in Dawson City in the 1960s, when  the town was as much a ghost town as it was ever  to become, left me a lot of time for reading and  pondering and Vietnam was my study from the  earliest days of the Johnson build-up.  I listened on the car radio beside the Yukon  Consolidated Gold Company's 'ditch', really a  canal which brought water 50 miles from the  mountains to the gold sluicing in the Klondike valley, as President Johnson solemnly intoned his reasons for sending Americans across the world to  prop up a corrupt regime holding a small remnant  of the former French Empire and wondered what  he thought was going to happen to his Great Society plans for domestic social justice while he  squandered treasure and lives in the jungles of  Asia.  I remember staring in disbelief at pictures in  Time magazine of American bomber pilots flying  off to defoliate the jungles with Colt 45's strapped  to their hips. "What do these guys think their  doing?" I wondered.  And I remember realizing something about  symbolism in the Dawson City Cinema at that  rime. The movie was another in the string of hero  ic westerns with apparently suicidal Indians riding  around in circles whooping whilst gallant and out  numbered wagon train members picked them off at  will until the cavalry galloped up and completed  the rout.  Over my popcorn I realized what a powerful  symbol the melodramatic sagas of the West were  in American mythology. The Indians obligingly  allowing themselves to be shot from their horses -  if only Custer had been so lucky - were the  'gooks' in Vietnam, just so many dehumanized  numbers in the day's body count  The Americans are forever the virtuous cavalry  riding to the rescue against non-human gooks;  their Commanders in Chief up to and including  George Bush are the John Waynes and the Jimmy  Stewarts and the Gary Coopers stalking their  monosyllabic way down the boardwalk to see the  bad guys out of town  This is a symbolism interfused to the very core  of the American political identity. So, if you would  understand the labyrinth of foreign policy initiatives of the world's last superpower and try to do it  without some history and sense of symbolism, you  go unarmed to the fray.  Next week, a look at posturing and symbolism  and the history behind it as applied to Iraq and the  former Yugoslavia.

He  owns a house on the East Side  which he would sell to finance a  new abode somewhere north ol  Gibsons.  From there, he would commute to his place of employment in downtown Vancouver  and hope for the day when some  of the same work could be tackled from the comfort of his  upcoast home.  True, the scenario has long  been familiar to everyone living  on the Coast. The only difference today - and the reason to  discuss it here - is its growing  popularity among people living  in this burg. If population pressure has been a bother in the  past, it is nothing compared to  what may yet arrive.  Blame the law of supply and  demand.  Supply, in this case, is a  shrinking commodity. The  Lower Mainland is running  short of buildings in which to  house new arrivals and it contains precious little undeveloped  land for new home construction.  The rugged geography of the  area may be a blessing in terms  of natural beauty, but it's a curse  when it comes to providing  room to grow.  Demand, meanwhile, is  bursting through the roof. The  Municipality of Surrey, long  regarded as the Lower Mainland  haven of ample, affordable  housing, expects severe strain to  follow in the wake of 15,000  new arrivals in 1993. For  Greater Vancouver as a whole in  the same period, population  growth is expected to number at  least 40,000 to 50,000 people.  The net result of dividing  supply by demand is a marketplace that's decidedly unafford-  able for common folk like thee  and me. Real estate advertising  supplements now list $275,000  dwellings as 'great starter  homes for first-time buyers.'  Looked at another way, the  price is about 13 times the annu-  ebbtide  duncan macdonnell  al salary paid to the average  Canadian, or about four times  the factor my father had to cope  with when he last purchased a  house, in 1972.  And that's just a starter  home. Various pockets of the  city offer base prices for housing that range from $210,000 to  over $600,000. That's right  now, in the midst of winter,  where prices supposedly bottom  out: one hesitates to wonder  where they'll peak this summer.  Obscene is too kind a word  to use to describe this current  state of affairs. Which brings us  back to the scenario sketched by  my friend with a house on the  East Side of The City. He's not  the only one planning to pull up  stakes for a more affordable  community and he's not the  only one looking at the Sunshine Coast to answer his needs.  And he's not the end of the  story, but the beginning. The  relative health of our economy  and the depressed state of economic activity elsewhere in  Canada - around the world, fur  thai matter - continue to attract  new settlers, as does the growing reputation this region enjoys  for natural beauty and tremendous quality of life.  The result is a housing  crunch thai experts say will persist despite any economic  change for the worst. It's a  housing crunch that will also  become more extreme, as the  law of supply and demand causes prices to reach even higher  levels. And when that happens  still more people will look to  outlying areas to provide affordable living. Welcome lo Ihe  vicious circle.  You've been warned; now  you have to prepare for the  letters  worst. You'll feel the pressuie  in rising housing prices in your  own backyard, in demands for  more and better services - hello,  higher taxes - and in congested  transportation and supply systems. You won't be able to just  pop into the supermarket for a  quick quart of milk, and you'll  have trouble finding a deserted  stretch of beach to provide  much-needed solitude.  Can you fight it? Don't even  think about stemming the tide:  there is no drawbridge, and  there's no turning back the  clock. The Coast has finally,  truly been discovered ��� actually,  Ihe entire Pacific Northwest  from Oregon to Alaska is now  considered the world's oyster -  and the rash for spoils is on.  But while we can't prevent  staggering growth in population,  there are steps to take to protect  the qualities that draw people  here in the first place. At the  risk of being ignored because  I'm beating a well-worn dram, I  remind readers about several  points raised in past installments  of this column: no matter how  small or isolated your community is, it requires a strong community plan to guide orderly  development.  If you don't have one, get  one; and if you have one, make  sure it does more than designate  which type of development goes  where - the priority must be to  define and safeguard community  standards for quality of life, not  to open new doors for development.  End of sermon. Now if you'll  excuse me, I have to get together with a couple of buddies lo  discuss buying some acreage up  the Coast, subdividing it to hold  six homes...  Sharing camp  Canada  My last poem "Tribute to  Rick Hansen and Others" elicited  a phone call from a native lady  who said she was greatly encouraged by the poem.  I only know a few native people but I have read a little about  their culture and history. Like  most Canadians, an element of  fear or doubt always filters into  my mind when I think of our  land settlement dilemma. I guess  the shadows of our movie-influenced culture cloak my thinking.  This kind lady's call stirred me  and motivated the following:  Stereotype genocide  Custer's last post filled  the Little Big Horn; we see Blue  Shirts, Law and Order  And naked Indians unleashing  their fury; as celluloid stereotypes protect our scalps.  Our thoughts like wagons  encircle movies; held hostage by  exaggerated terror  Minds enlightened by European  lamps; peer dimly into the  earth-child's teepee.  We enforced the three R's  and Bible rote; preaching against  sin and drunkenness  He learned well and filled  our jails; now prison walls wail  for atonement.  Four hundred years of immoral  mortar; royally troweled from  Christian sea to sea  Blessed block laid upon  abused block; and it is the  savage who forgives usl  As he extends to you  his talking stick; accept his  generosity with open heart  Offer all we can afford at this  potlach; fear not, we all share  Camp Canada.

Coast News, January 18, 1993  11  community  haltmoon happenings  by Ruth Forrester, 885-2418  There are many good people  in the Halfmoon Bay area, some  that we know of and others of  whom we never hear. Carol  Stewart is one such person who  has recently been drawn to our  attention.  Carol has been to El Salvador  before and she will be going  Ihere again on Feb. 8 to spend  two months on a project to help  children who have been traumatized by the wars in that pari of  the world. She is presently collecting items to take with her,  such as medical supplies, small  musical instruments and art supplies.  If you have any such items  you would care to donate, or if  you would rather help out with a  cash donation, Carol will issue  tax-free receipts and would be  delighted to hear from you at  885-6128.  Another local resident who  does lots of good work is Joanne  Dickeson at the Halfmoon Bay  Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre.  Right now she is in need of  some help. Well, not exactly  right now, but in the near future  when things start to thaw out a  bit.  The flight cage in which  Joanne cares for injured birds  has been damaged by the heavy  snow. The fishnet roof has  caved in and help is needed to  pull it down and repair il. This is  something which will take more  than one person to handle. If  you are willing to lend a hand  give Joanne a call at 885-5997.  Yet another group which  does a lot of good for the community is the Halfmoon Bay  branch of St. Mary's Hospital  Auxiliary.  At their January meeting it  was established that a bursary  will be sponsored by the auxiliary for Halfmoon Bay residents  who intend entering a health-  related field. Information and  details are being sent out to the  schools.  The auxiliary meets on the  second Monday of each month  in the Welcome Beach Community Hall and new members are  always welcome.  Go Sec It  The 1992 Heritage Week  photo contest is on display at  Halfmoon Bay Elementary until  Jan. 21.

They  were Christopher Watkins, Ashley Johnson, Kristy-aOee Tabish,  Troy Mercer and Caelen Kyle.  Do try to see this most interesting exhibit which recognizes  the diversity of our Canadian  heritage. The exhibit will shortly be going to other schools in  the area.  Those al the school are concerned lhat anyone may be  house-bound by the snow and  who may need groceries delivered, wood chopped or a driveway cleared.  If you are one of those in  need, please call Ihe school and  they will try to help.

My last  truly memorable event was a  long time back and I was beginning to fear that such occasional  joys were all behind me. Then,  in early December, Yvonne and  I attended a Kashtin concert al  the Orpheum Theatre and I  rediscovered my sense of wonder.  Frankly, I wasn't entirely  sure what to expect from  Kashtin in person. I knew they  were two young Native guys  from Quebec named Florent  Vollant and Claude McKenzie,  who had married lyrics in the  obscure Montagnais dialect to  soft rock instrumentation.  I'd seen them a few times on  television and listened to their  album. There was a haunting  quality about Iheir songs even  though you couldn't follow the  words. But could this sort of  thing sustain a whole show?  The audience for Kashtin's  music seems to include people  of all age brackets except teeny  hoppers.  The crowd at the Orpheum  are mostly in their mid-30s, but  there are a good many older  folks like ourselves among the  throng. Not surprisingly, the  Native contingent is well represented. The empty stage Tilled  with instruments and speakers is  backdropped by several canvas  sheets representing the walls of  a tent.  The lights fade suddenly to  black. There are recorded wind  sounds and the cries of loons.  The lights go up again. The  musicians are in their places.  The magic begins. (And make  no mistake - what Kashtin  weaves is most assuredly a sort  of magic.)  The two singer/songwriters,  McKenzie and Vollant, front a  group composed of bass, drums,  rhythm guitar and keyboards.  (The keyboard player doubles  on harp and guitar.) The band  provides a bedrock-solid backing for the acoustic-guitar-playing stars.  McKenzie and Vollant are  amazingly good entertainers  with strong melodic voices.  They share the vocal chores  equally, duelling on some numbers, launching into solo flight  on others.  The songs have titles like: E  Uassiuian (My Childhood) and  Tipatshimun (The Devil's  Song). The fact that the songs  are not in English doesn't matter a bit.  The duo's infectious enthusiasm reaches beyond words,  communicating in an almost  primal way; casting a web of  sheer joyous sound. It seems to  pulse from some universal  source that most of us have forgotten.  Musically, Kashtin seems to  incorporate elements from  many forms - Celtic, country,  zydeco, gypsy and the blues.  They make no secret, however,  about one of their primary influences.  "I was going to be a truck  driver until I heard Ihis," confides McKenzie with a grin.  And he launches into a rousing  tribute to John Lennon and The  Beatles that includes: Hard  Day's Night, Money, Help and  a heartfelt version of Imagine.  The crowd eats it all up.  But mostly Kashtin do their  own unique and inimitable  thing. They are entertainers to  the hilt.  The show sparkles on  through a couple of long sets.  There are no dull moments and  the pace never slackens. The  second set builds to a crescendo  and ends with two standing ovations and two encores.  We are with them all the free  wheeling way.  Yvonne and I drift happily  out of the theatre with the rest  of them, having got more than  our money's worth. I am a  wide-eyed fan again. Viva  Kashtin! Music livesl   _,___ ^~._^-s______________3____  ____________  __________  ______ Coast News, January 18, 1993  13  1  leisure  Kraft coming  Celebrated Canadian guitarist Norbert Kraft is set to  perform at Ihe Raven's Cry  Theatre.  The music of Paganini,  Castelnuovo-Tedesco, Gerhard, Schafer and Albeniz will  fill the theatre Sunday, Jan. 24  at 2:30 pm in the third concert  of the arts council's Countryside Concerts Series.  Classical guitarist Kraft has  been hailed as "one of Ihe  finest living guitarists," and  his performance promises to  be a highlight of the season for  many concert-goers.

Norbert Kraft  Patience and love  of detail reflected  in stained glass art  String sessions to tune  up orchestral skills  String instrument players on  the Coast will have a wonderful  opportunity this spring to develop their orchestral skills with a  nationally experienced director  and at no cost to themselves.  The Sunshine Coast Music  Society, in order to encourage  strings develop-       mem for its activities, has organized  a program of  weekly training  sessions for a  String Ensemble.  Scheduled   in     Sechelt for Mon-  day afternoons from Jan. 25  through to April, the program  will be directed by Lorraine  Grescoe-Ovenell. Currently  conductor of the Serenata  Strings in Vancouver and  instructor at Douglas College.  Grescoe-Ovenell has played  with the Winnipeg Symphony  Orchestra and CBC Winnipeg  '... Allowing first  class training  without  restriction'  Lower Mainland, she has led  award-winning Delta Youth  Orchestra groups and taught  with the Vancouver Academy of  Music and Capilano College, as  well as extensive private teaching.  Funding for this program    was       gratefully  received by the  music society from a  Sunshine Coast Regional District arts  grant, allowing first  class training with-      out restriction.  ~~^^~~ The program is  open to all siring players who  are not absolute beginners and  Ihe initial goal will be to prepare a variety of string pieces  for a spring concert. Private  lessons with Grecoe-Ovenell  can also be arranged.  For further information and  to register, players must telephone SCMS artistic director,  by Keith Thirkell  Of all the arts associated  with the season of light, stained  glass stands out.  There probably isn't a church  anywhere that doesn't have at  least one piece of stained glass.  Some of the most impressive  works of art on earth adorn windows in the massive cathedrals  of Europe.  But you don't have to be religious to appreciate the exquisite  craftsmanship and tireless effort  that goes into creating these  masterpieces. Working with  glass is far from a dying art  form, as is evident from a visit  to June Malaka's Pender Harbour studio.  A talented and prolific  stained glass artist, Malaka  recently quit a well-paying job  to venture out on her own. "I  decided I wanted to devote all  my time now to my craft, something I've been anticipating for  a while," she remarked from the  tranquil little studio nestling  between the trees and streams  on the west side of one of her  inspirations: the Caren range.  "Most stained glass enthusiasts seem to get into it then quit  after a short time, maybe  because they find it too tedious  or time consuming," Malaka  said. "But for me the actual, cut  ting of the glass and soldering  the pieces together are only half  of what's involved. I take as  much time designing and planning a composition as I do actually making it."  Malaka, whose attention to  detail is phenomenal, has works  in personal collections around  the globe. She occasionally  accepts major commissions, but  prefers to work on her own  material.  Most of her personal  favorites are environmental and  wildlife motifs. Whether it's a  harbour seal diving for fish, a  great blue heron standing to  attention or a bald eagle lifting  off from its favourite perch, her  use of line and colour is strikingly real.  But that doesn't mean she's  averse lo abstracts. "Sometimes  I'll take some of my leftover  smaller pieces and make a kind  of a jigsaw puzzle, then rearrange them in whatever style  appeals to me most at the time."  One recent example made  use of an old Japanese fish float  that she incorporated into the  centre of a spiralling design,  swirling outward into a blizzard  of colour reminiscent of the rising sun.  A trip to her studio is well  worth the scenic drive.  Orchestra ensembles.

Jeneane  Ellingham and her horse Gibraltar have been short listed for the  Canadian National Equestrian  Team for 1993.  "I just received the letter saying I had short listed," Ellingham said Thursday.  While being short listed  doesn't mean Ellingham is actually on the team yet; there are  enough things that go wrong  with horses that she stands a  good chance if a couple of the  nine other riders have problems,  or "break-down."  That means there is an excellent chance Ellingham will be  on the National team and representing Canada at the world riding championships next year in  Holland.  Last year Ellingham and  Cjreraltar where long listed for  the Olympics in Barcelona and  spent much of 1992 travelling  on a shoestring budget to different horse competitions throughout the United States.  The goal was not only to  remain on the long list but to  improve their overall standings  so that, if a vacancy on the  minor hockey  by Don MacLeod  Sunshine Coast Minor Hockey - week ending Jan. 1 saw the  Tykes playing exhibition games  to sharpen their learned skills.  Novice - Bruins 4 vs  Cougars 1; Whalers 4 vs Sharks  4.  Atoms - Wings 0 vs Oilers  I; Oilers 3 vs North De.la 2;  Jets 3 vs Flyers 2.  Pee Wee C - Flames 3 vs  Squamish 6; Canucks 6 vs  Hollyburn 2.  Pee Wee A - Blues 7 vs  Hastings 4; Blues 10 vs Port  Moody 0.  Bantam C - SC 0 vs Seafair  4.  Bantam A - Blues 2 vs  Cloverdale 3.  Midget A - Blues 3 vs  Squamish 8.  The logo contest was a great  success with the winner of the  $50 prize being Mike Duncan.  A big thanks to all the people  who participated. We want to  fill the sponsor board; anyone  wishing to purchase a game  during the provincial championships call Don at 885-2507.  Canadian National team came  up, they would be in a position  to fill it.  Their efforts paid off. Ellingham and Gibraltar made the  short list after a superb year in  1992, which culminated in plac  ing 5th Canadian and 11th  overall at Checkmate, Ontario's  premier three-day-event course.  The three day event is where  Ellingham excels and one that  demands skill and endurance  from both horse and rider.

Turn ihose  unwanted ilems info,  _a  __________  _m Local chambers balk at labour code  by Darah Hansen  Representatives of both the Gibsons and  Sechelt Chamber of Commerce say they  aren't happy with Bill 84, NDP labour minister Moe Sihota's new labour code, and  they've joined in the fray to pressure for  changes.  Local chamber presidents both say  they're siding with the BC Chamber of  Commerce on the issue, calling the bill  "unfair" and "destructive" to small and  medium-sized businesses.  Their objections follow from those  expressed by the BC Chamber - an organization representing 40,000 BC businesses -  which lists three points as "particularly disturbing," according to president Ian  MacLeod.  The automatic union certification if 55  per cent of employees sign union cards, is  MacLeod's primary concern. The decision,  he said, could leave 45 per cent of workers  with "no say in their future" or result in  intimidation by co-workers to sign.  He expressed further dissatisfaction with  the provision allowing secondary boycotts,  giving unions the opportunity to set within  contract terms that employers acquire goods  or services from unionized workers only.  Thirdly, MacLeod objected to the absolute ban on replacement workers during a  strike which could deny entry to owners and  management who usually don't work on a  site where a strike is in effect.  Acting president for the Sechelt Chamber,  Jack Greenwood, said he's in full support of  the larger organization's sland.  "It's not a good bill by any means," he  said, "It's going to create a lol of unemployment on the Sunshine Coast... And we've  got a lot of employment problems now.  "We need jobs, not confrontations  between unions and employees."  Greenwood said a union has no place in a  small business. Dealing through a union "is  not a very friendly way to run a business.  "A small business is like a family," said  Greenwood, "you wanl to be able to just sit  down and talk over a cup of coffee. If a  female employee wanls time off to have a  baby, you give her time off..."  Gibsons president Sharon Burke shares  Greenwood's concerns, saying in a business  wilh only Iwo or three employees, it's  uncomfortable lo know it will only take one  to get union certification. "That can have  really far reaching effects," she said.  Both Burke and Greenwood say they will  participate in any action the provincial  chamber takes to battle tlte code. So far, BC  Chamber leaders have launched a letter-writing campaign against the governmenl and  are considering legal action, arguing the  prohibition of the secret ballot for union certification is a contravention of the Canadian  Charter of Rights and Freedoms.  5 YEARS AGO  Gibsons sewage system has  been dumping some problems  on the new public works superintendent Skip Reeves this past  week. Manhole Number 2,  located just below the Municipal Hall and 42 inches in diameter was found to be plugged  with a one foot thick slab of  grease.  Sechell RCMP have responded lo several road accidents on  the Trout Lake section of Highway 101. They warn drivers that  the situation is very treacherous  in the mornings and evenings  with black ice.  10 YEARS AGO  A group of Bluff residents  heard several proposals from  Gibsons Council for putting in a  sewer line to serve at least part  of the Bluff area.  Citing the need to attend to  business, Sechelt Mayor Bud  Koch, owner of Sunshine GM,  resigned from village council  last week. His resignation came  as a surprise to members of  council.

Roxanne Gregory photo  Unemployed Action Centre  tackling poverty on the Coast  The Coast News  Our 48th year of Serving the Sunshine Coast  by Roxanne Gregory  Images of poverty are with us every day. The  dry statistics, 70,000 Canadian bankruptcies in  19192, belie the human toll. Five hundred and sixty-  three children on the Coast exist below the poverty  line on social assistance. Principals know there is  hunger in our schools, but because the Ministry of  Education uses a formula based on Stats Can generalizations, poverty on the Sunshine Coast isn't  centralized enough to qualify any school for the  assisted lunch program.  People shake their heads because the homeless  walk the night to keep from freezing in Vancouver.  A Richmond man wasn't so lucky, he froze to  death last week. Unlike the United States, where  churches are opened as shelters for the homeless,  Vancouver churches remain closed.  Are there homeless people living on the Sunshine Coast? What about the working poor? The  people tied to low income jobs with no possibility  for advancement.  Or the people who are bounced from UIC project to project. Many short-term jobs are federally  underwritten so that you cannot apply for them  unless you have an active UI claim.  Those are some of the issues the Sunshine Coast  Unemployed Action Centie is trying to raise public  awareness about. With help from Vancouver's End  Legislated Poverty, the local group is incorporating  as a society. It is hoping to gain funding for educational projects to further projects which will  increase public awareness. Charity isn't what ihey  are working for, they're working for social justice,  says coordinator Anne Miles.  Miles chaired a meeting last Saturday in Gibsons peopled with an eclectic new membership.  There was an unemployed carpenter, a former electrician, a quilter, a writer, a janitor, among others.  Discussions were lively, many centered on Ihe new  direction the centre will be taking after incorporation.  "We'd like to sponsor an advocacy training program," said SCUAC member Donna Thomas. "So  many people are victims of the system because  they don't have an advocate, and don't know iheir  rights."  Thomas, who recently returned from a meeiing  with the Sunshine Coasl Labour Council, talked  about the difficulties encountered in unionizing  low income workers, like credit union workers and  bank employees. "It's difficult organizing the  unorganized," she said.  Another project on the agenda is the possible  production of a skit for cable TV. People are  enthusiastic as they explore the possibilities  involved in a production.
