 LEGISLATIVE LIBRARY  PariiamentBuiUUngs ^  Victoria, B.C. >��' ****  COAST^NEWS  50 cents per copy on newsstands  ESTABLISHED    1945  September 2B, 1992 Volume 46 Issue 39  Water values still key to Tetrahedron decisions  part 1 of a series  by Jane Seyd  Outlined in abstract on one of the  many forestry maps it's been drawn on  to, the Tetrahedron study area looks  like a Rorschach blotch hovering over  the contours of the landscape.  And in many ways, it is.  For over the past two years, since the  5,700 forested and alpine hectares first  became the subject of a decidedly  experimental Local Resource Use Planning (LRUP) community process, the  Tetrahedron has meant many things to  different people: some of them real and  some of Ihem symbolic; all requiring  effort, frustration and time.  Extending in an irregular pattern  from Tannis Lake in the west to Ml.  Tetrahedron and Panther Peak in the  east, from Main and McNair lakes in  the south to the alpine area near Mt.  Steele in the north, the Tetrahedron  includes a diverse sel of resource values  over a relatively small area.  Jusl what's at stake in the Tetrahedron depends on who you ask. Water,  jobs, a habitat for wildlife. A sanctuary  space in the woods. A number of timber  dollar*..  With 2,900 hectares of the Tetrahedron study area included in the regional  district's watershed reserve for the  Coast, the potential for conflict over  logging and waler quality - two of the  more contentious values - has a lengthy  history.  As long ago as the early 1970s, local  politicians had expressed concern about  the potential effect logging could have  on the area's domestic water supply. At  that time, a report recommending joint  management of the resource was completed by the Ministry of Forests.  Then, for a long time, not much public attention was paid to the Tetrahedron.  Logging rights in the area passed  from Jackson Bros.. Ihe original owners, first to a company from Mission,  and eventually lo International Forest  Products.  But about two and a half years ago,  that all came to a stop, as both Ihe  regional district and other members of  community became increasingly con  cerned about the clearcuts around Tannis Lake, which they saw as leading  inio the Chapman bowl waler supply  area.  "They were doing an end run," says  Jeremy Frith, regional direcior and  LRUP member. "It may have been they  thought these guys would just go lo  sleep and they could get away with it.  "As lar as Forestry and Inlerfor was  concerned...they were entitled to log.  We reacted and said this mustn't happen."  turn to page 3  MIA, MP  views on  accord  constitute  quandary  by Jane Seyd  For much of the summer,  while Ihe rest of the country  wrangled, the Big C was still  possible lo bypass on Ihe local  level.  But now, wilh the Canada-  wide referendum on the new  constitutional accord lumbering  into view for Oct. 26, local  politicians of all stripes are  jumping into the fray.  This Wednesday night at  Greenecourt Hall in Sechell,  local MP Ray Skelly will hold  the first of what promises or  threatens - depending on your  level of constitutional exhaustion - lo be several local meetings on the new agreement.  A limited number of preliminary draft texts of the agreement will be available, along  with a more concise federal  governmenl summary of 20  basic principles contained in  Ihe Charlottetown Accord.  The meeting will be an  opportunity for Ihe public to  ask questions and stale Iheir  posilions about the Accord,  says Skelly, who is in favour of  voting 'yes' in the national referendum, which would see Ihe  constitution renewed on the  basis of the Charlottetown  agreement.  Local MLA and Opposition  Leader Gordon Wilson, meanwhile, has been campaigning  publicly against the vote for the  agreement.  "I'm as ardently supportive  as he is hostile to it," says Skelly. "It's a compromise arrangement.  "I'm convinced if we don't  support il, Quebec will leave.  They will see it as a rejection  of federalism."  While Wilson has said the  federal government is taking an  unfairly melodramatic approach lo the agreement, Skelly  disagrees.  "We are al a serious crossroads and people have a serious  decision to make," he says. A  vote against the accord "stands  an excellent chance of destroying our economy."  turn lo page 3  checkout  In the  ifpcotttfiig  m\wekBnder  ������vviwinrwi  Harman bronze  Ottawa bound  Sculptor Jack Harman, his son Stephen (rear) and one of three bronze figures of Ihe Peacekeeping  Monument now bound for Ottawa. Joel Johnstone pholo  by Stuart Burnside  The while hoi, 2,200 degree  forge has been turned off at  sculptor Jack Harman's Roberts  Creek foundry, and the pressure  of meeting a seemingly impossible deadline has been removed...  last week Harman  ground   the   final    ������  touches into Ihree  10-foot bronze soldiers he created as  his portion of Ihe  "National   Peacekeeping Monument"  to be unveiled in  Ottawa Oct. 8.  The only glow  now found at the  foundry comes from     _____________  the   countenances  Harman's assistants, the 64-  year-old master himself, and the  pipe that is forever in his hand.  "This (project) has been  hell," says Harman, relighting  the pipe for the hundredth lime,  "but (the soldiers) are finished.  Now it's just malter of getting  them to Ottawa."  The soldiers, wilh a combined weight of around 2,300  pounds, were commissioned by  the Department of National  Defence to help commemorate  Canada's role as a Uniled  Nations peacekeeper.  They are to be erected across  from Ottawa's national art  gallery and will be symbolically  depicted entering the rubble  strewn, war torn area of the  world in Ihe aftermath of battle.  The project is a collaboration  with other artists working in  Ottawa lo set the battle-scene  stage upon which Harman's cast  of three will stand.  "Everything in Ottawa is  ready as well," Harman noted.  One of the reasons Harman's  soldiers were such "hell" to  '... to help  commemorate  Canada's role  as a United  Nations  Peacekeeper'  sculpt, according to Ihe artist, is  that he was working on his  "Queen Astride a Horse" sculpture at the same time.  While that masterpiece was  unveiled in Ottawa on Canada's  most recent birthday, work on  both projects had to  be completed over  roughly the same  two-year period and  proceeded  al  an  almosl simultaneous  rate.  Last Thursday,  however, as Harman and and his  crew prepared to  crate    the    Ihree  _____________   bronze figures for  transport to the  nation's capital, Ihere was iin air  of accomplishment and good  humour at the foundry.  "I've really enjoyed working  on this," said Harman's younger  brother Tim, a retired sheet  melal worker who helped with  Ihe project. "It's not always easy  work but it is fun."  Harman's son, Stephen, also  assisted, and will Iravel to  Ottawa with his dad to help set  Ihe soldiers up.  In addition, Harman received  help from artist Steve Majcher,  who has worked with Harman  off and on for 20 years, and  Elphinstone Secondary students  Jesse Agnew, Kris Hepburn and  Shawn Hunt, among others.  Unfortunately for Harman,  Ihe Ottawa unveiling won't be  the end of work for the project.  As part of the commission, the  defence departmenl wants an  undetermined number of foot-  long bronze miniatures of the  three soldiers. "It won't be much  fun (making the miniatures),"  Harman said, "ll isn't creative  anymore."  Native self-government coming of age in Sechelt  by Nancy Moote & Jane Seyd  Seen from Ihe window of  Chief Tom Paul's office in the  Sechelt Indian Band's new complex, a low line of houses in  weather-beaten shades faces out  towards the Strait of Georgia.  Here, the daily shape of life  doesn't look much different  from that of many native bands.  But it is different. Native  self-government is coming of  age in Sechelt, as some of the  band members push for a bigger  voice in decisions. It's a return  to tradition, says Wesley Jeffries, one of the new movement's leaders: "The people  were more involved in decisionmaking in the traditional ways."  Six years ago, when the  Sechelt band became the first in  Canada to achieve self-government, their agreement with Ihe  provincial and federal authorities was regarded by many as  ground breaking.  Sechelt government was  local self-determination in  action, a brave new vision drafted by the band itself which  would fit in with urban realities  and allow the band's economic  development projects lo be realized. It was a government meant  to work with the larger white  community around it on the  Coasl, through a policy of  "good neighbour" relations.  On Chief Paul's desk is a letter from a Saskatchewan Indian  band, one of many from native  groups across Ihe country who  want whal ihe Sechell have: outright ownership of their lands  and freedom from the paternal  control of the Department of  Indian Affairs.  Other native groups have  criticized Ihe Sechelt agreement  as a sell-out drawn up by the  band's while advisors, but the  elected band council stuck to  their own course, expecting that  time would prove Ihem right.  Now, with the band's $54 million land claim still awaiting  settlement, criticism is coming  from within the Sechelt Band  itself, notably from a young  group of "concerned band members" who believe Ihe elected  band council has losl touch with  Iheir own people.  Challenging the council's  non-confrontational good neighbour policy over the summer,  the group led a blockade of Ihe  PelroCan station on band lands,  which had been refusing lo  Chief Tom Paul at the band hatchery.  Joel Johnstone photo  directly give natives their legal  tax exemption. And at Ihe  band's most recent general  meeting, they demanded the resignation of Ihe band's while  financial   advisor,   Gordon  Anderson. Anderson gained too  much power during his 20 years  with the band, says concerned  band member Jerome Julian:  "We got rid of the Indian Act,  but we took Ihe Indian agent  with us."  Julian illustrates his disillusionment with Sechell self-government by describing a luxury  ocean liner of the "Self-Government Cruise Line." Anderson is  al Ihe wheel and Chief Paul and  Ihe other four councillors are  aboard, waving lo the crowd on  shore as they sail off. "Self-government is shooting ahead, but  Ihey forgol the Indians at the  wharf," he says.  At first, Ihey say, everyone  had big hopes for this kind of  self governmenl. "We'd be economically independent, we'd all  have jobs. . .," says band member Valerie Bourne. "None of  lhat has happened."  And in taking on a municipal-style model, designed lo  keep Ihe white communily  unthrealened, they wonder what  they've given up of their own  history and identity.  Says Jeffries, "The government tried lo force native people  into assimilation, saying our  culture was wrong, taking away  the language. The municipal  self-government we have here is  the same as whal they were trying to do."  turn to page 6 Coast News, September 28, 1 *>-).��  SPECIAL TOUCHES  Cleaning Services  Residential ��� Commercial ��� Marine  No job coo big or small  INSURED WORK BONXDSTAH  885-4457     MH��  Hall renovations underway  Gibsons Heritage Society still needing funds  Retirement and Insurance Planning  ��� Retirement  Planning  ��� Life & Inability  Insurance  ��� Employee Benefit  Plans '  ��� Lawrence K  Quotas, cu  ��� Sflv-MII  ��� Toll Free:  l-SIKMili.v.MISl  Mllll, U Hll ,1-   HI INI   Vtltll  uuiiti-ui i.ri'u|>"l himb Llil  Saving ihe sunshine Ohm State 1982  It's Time To  Make Memories  125 portraits only $14.95  pis $2 sitting lee: 1-8x10. 2 5��7, 2-3'/?x5,  4 wallets 16 friendship wallets  Tuesday, Wednesdays, Thursday.

McGuire says more communily help - financial, labour and  materials - will be needed lo  complete the interior theatre  conversion, especially now thai  government funding sources are  limited.  "If everything goes according to plan, we could have Ihe  theatre going probably in late  spring," says McGuire. Work on  the outside of Ihe building is  expected to take aboul 13 weeks  and should be finished by  Christmas.  "We need some exlra capital," says McGuire. "The trick  now is obtaining material  monies." The society has decided to hold a "Box Social" on  Oct. 17 as a fall fundraising  event for Ihe whole family (see  separate story).

Easing the conflict of court disputes  by Jane Seyd  The Sechelt courtroom, and  the reasons both women and  men end up in it, are never usually easy to deal with.  But that doesn't mean there  aren't efforts made to make the  experience less traumatic.  In particular, "we go a long  way in trying to make things as  easy as we can for victims of  violence," says Crown counsel  Tony Rowley.  And as for victims of violent  criminal offences, such as sexual or domestic assault, waiting in  the same room as their accused,  says Rowley, "That never never  happens."  Instead, Crown witnesses  have a separate waiting room,  complete with books to keep  children occupied. All witnesses  receive a package in the mail  before their court date, directing  them straight to Ihe Crown  counsel's office, says Rowley.  An escort from the local Victim  Witness Services will also  'We go a long way in  trying to make  things as easy as  we can for victims of  violence  -Cmwn Counsel Tony Rowley  accompany those who want  someone with them in the courtroom.  In cases of family law, such  as custody battles, Ihe special  waiting room is also available if  it's uncomfortable for people to  sit together on the regular waiting bench, says Rowley.  While Ihe victim does have to  face the accused in the actual  courtroom, "our system is based  on everyone who's charged with  a crime being allowed to hear  the evidence against Ihem," says  Rowley, "and I doubt very much  if that's going to change."  In some cases witnesses  under the age of 18 may be  allowed lo testify behind a  screen or through a video link if  that treatment is justified in the  view of Ihe judge.  Meanwhile, says Rowley,  emotions aren't always disregarded in the courtroom.  "In any assault case, emotions play a very important  part," he says. In sentencing,  victim impact statements are  often taken inio account by the  judge and "they aren't simply a  list of how many stitches someone got."  In the Sechelt courtroom, "of  the nine people who work here,  only three are men," said Row-  ley.  For either men or women,  "it's not comfortable to have  your personal life in the hands  of a system that's strange. But  we really do try to make it easier."

Darah Hansen pholo  Road construction viewed destructive  from page I  A hall lo further logging in the area was  called and a long-suffering communily process was started.  As the LRUP grinds into its third year of  debate and discussion, water is still of primary importance - especially to a governmenl  serving a rapidly increasing population.  Concern about logging centres on large  clcarcuts known to alter hydrology patterns  by removing the canopy and root system  which helps retain snow melt, resulting in  floods which could eventually cause siltation  of the waler system. There is also concern  about erosion and cave-ins from road-building.  "They talk aboul taking 20 per cenl of the  limber oul in little patches," says Frith. "But  in order to get Ihere you have lo build roads  in."  Continued logging in the lower elevation  watersheds of the Greater Vancouver  Regional District and Victoria's Capital  Regional Districl doesn't make the local  stance an easy one for politicians. "It puts an  enormous pressure on smaller watersheds,"  says Prilh.  "What we're being asked lo do as a community is lo absorb the mistakes and unconcern of Ihe forest industry and give Ihem a  buffer in our watershed. I have a lot of problems wilh that.

Bul  throughout it all Ihe campfires al Camp Byng have  never stopped burning.  Opened by Governor-General and Chief Scout  Lord Byng of Vimy in 1922, Ihe camp has seen  some changes over Ihe years but its 201 acres of  wooded, beachfront properly remains       the pride of Ihe Vancouver area boy  scout movement.  9 facie' StWvener became a member of  the Vancouver 22tid Canadian Memorial  boy scout troop in I934~1ind spent two  weeks of every summer at the camp  until he enlisted in the military in 1941.  His memories of Ihe camp are nostal-       gic: "My greatest memory is of the old  lodge. We had the most wonderful campfires,  mostly inside because il was usually raining. We  put on skils and did little things to contribute to  those evenings together."  A city boy, he remembers camping outdoors  and learning about Ihe wilderness - its trees, planls  and animals. He also recalls the games, in particular 'kick the can' which involved a leam of boys  linked in defence of a tin can and an opposing team  whose job it was to break through the line and kick  it.  "However simple that might seem to be," said  Scrivener, "in a wilderness setting where everything is hidden, it can be very exciting for little  boys."  In 1948, Scrivener decided lo devote his life to  scouting, attributing his "Byng years" lo Ihe decision to stay with the organization.  Over the years the camp deteriorated, the old  wharf disappeared amongst the ocean's waves, the  totem poles wore down and the lodge was in need  of rebuilding in order to pass health and safety  codes. The cost of repairs was high, Ihe ferries       were a problem and a more central location like the Fraser Valley was being  'Mv greatest     suggested* In 1978 a proposal was made  lo sell the property, then worth over $3  memory is of   million in timber alone.  the old lodge'       "ul tne scouls discarded the idea,  rallying in favour of Ihe old camp. They  -Jack Scritvner raised ,ne $500,000 necessary to build a        new lodge and undertook its revitalization.  The lodge today stands on the same site as did  the old, its rustic flavour untainted despite expansions lo modern cooking and dining facilities. The  trees stand as always, offering a buffer to the  encroaching outside world, the time-worn nature  path remains and the two original totem poles have  been replaced.  At age 70 himself now, Scrivener has retired but  feels the camp is as vital as it ever was to the  development of young minds and bodies.  "The decision was made years ago lo hang on to  the properly. The viewpoint thai prevailed was that  it would always be a training ground for children.  "It really is quite magical," he said.  MP, MLA debate likely in the offing  from page 1  Skelly says he doesn't see a  guarantee to Quebec of 25 per  cent of the House of Commons  seats as radically undemocratic:  "Quebec has 25 per cent of  Canada's population and it is  likely to retain thai," he says.  Meanwhile, he says the  revamped Senate will provide  an adequate counter measure to  the power of Eastern Canada.  But according to Wilson,  granting Quebec a 25 per cenl  guarantee will serve to entrench  power in the East, while the  effectiveness of a reformed senate - which will not be consistently elected in all provinces -  remains questionable.  One thing the two politicians  do agree on is that people  should vote according to Iheir  consciences.  "If you vole against the decision you're not a traitor," says  Skelly.  Skelly and Wilson will likely  debate the constitutional accord  for a second time on cable TV  before Ihe referendum in October.

The one the pollsters tell us the public doesn't like.  Mere mention of it makes otherwise normal people tired  and irritable. For the most part, Ihe arduous bickering  over the constitution has been avoidable on the local  level.  At best it's seemed large, abstract and distant; at worst  a manufactured crisis designed to lake our minds off the  politicians' lack of gumption on more important matters.  Somewhat sadly, as the national referendum looms on  the horizon, both the forces in favour and opposing the  constitutional accord are attempting to use the public's  exhaustion to sway opinion: vole yes and we'll shut up  about it; vote no and we'll ignore it for a while.  Hardly a way to foster intelligent discussion.  As Oct. 26 draws closer, it's time to get beyond the  spin-doctored public relations and the crass political  gamesmanship. It's time to actually figure oul what we're  being asked to vole on, and to decide whal the decision  might mean.  This Wednesday night in Sechell. a meeting is being  held where copies of Ihe basic principles contained in (he  accord and the preliminary draft (exl will be available.  No, it's not the full legal text, as MLA Gordon Wilson  lus pointed out.  But it is a start. And it's certainly better than a vote  based on emotional reaction.  As the referendum dale draws nearer, there will other  meetings, and debates, and discussion. There will be  interpretations from a variety of sources.  We owe it to ourselves, as local citizens, lo be  informed whether we decide to vote for the agreement or  against it.  It's a small effort to make, whatever opinions we may  hold about the future of this country.  Enumerating kings  It was as though the priorities of Coast residents were  there for all to see, if stories in newspapers are to be  believed.  Those needful of some extra cash had all but shunned  the assured remuneration that would flow from enumeration in pursuit of the bright lights of Hollywood.  Not to put too fine a point on it, a Vancouver broadsheet that rises earlier these days published a story last  week suggesting that Elections Canada was having trouble hiring enumerators on the Sunshine Coast for the Oct.  26 national referendum on the constitution. The reason  being that everybody in town is apparently climbing over  one another to land a job as an extra in Needful Things,  the Stephen King horror movie to begin filming in Gibsons next month.  Thing is, the movie doesn't begin shooting until Oct.  13, while the job of signing up voters for the great Canadian constitutional showdown will be done and dusted by  October 7. Are we being too literal, perhaps? Failing to  appreciate the journalistic jest of the Sun's front page  pontifications?  An yet behind the headlines rests an unsettling truth.  The lure of the silver screen continues a 20th century  obsession, and the relentless search for stardom, even if  it's for Andy Warhol's IS minutes of glory, the unshake-  able North American dream.  Could it be that given a choice, we'd rather be king for  a day than face the constitutional nightmare?  <fatfi<  9/ m_\  /  (%>&**��... out  "rioe�� avKXtivp. vitti,  ^~-   >6 M atAHflS OF ft TDM     J  ^^^ W&'rtlldb rrfc CUl-TUEE.   b\bb(M>\  ���i /      f^_W_\ ~V\   Hf* * 6roeS nW * P*��TTY*  .��. f\    .^M      &> Ct-ufctH MADE OF..)

Nicholson, aboul the Marbled  Murrelet both contain dangerously flawed arguments and  conclusions.  Bolh gentlemen question  whether Marbled Murrelets are  dependent on old-growth forests  for nesting habitat. To anyone  even remotely familiar with the  species, such doubts rank right  up Ihere with 'does smoking  cause cancer, does acid rain  need more study, and is the  earth flat?'  James Thompson displays all  the classic ignorance of the armchair critic in denigrating Paul  Jones' work. Mr Jones has  undertaken serious scientific  investigations of Marbled Murrelets on the Sunshine Coast. On  many a day, in fair weather and  foul, he has arisen at 3 am and  been in place on the Caren  Range for Ihe morning flight of  the Murrelets which begins as  early as 4 am in mid-summer.  Paul Jones knows as much  about Marbled Murrelets as anyone in Canada.  Mr Thompson seems embarrassingly anxious to deny that  Marbled Murrelets might nest in  the Caren Range. Experts on the  Marbled Murrelet would all  probably be amazed if it was  proven the species does not nest  in the Caren's old growth  forests. I would remind Mr  Thompson lhat finding the nest  of a small secretive bird that  nests SO metres up in the canopy  of our tallest tress, makes finding the proverbial needle in a  haystack a real breeze. If Mr  Thompson has any positive suggestions in helping lo find a  nesl, lots of people would be  happy to hear them.  Bolh Mr Thompson and Mr  Nicholson point out that Marbled Murrelets are frequently  seen off our coast. This is correct. On Ihe Audubon Christmas  Bird Count in Dec. 1988, 1,849  Marbled Murrelets were counted off our coasl, and Ihis was  Ihe highest total for the species  of any of the 1,600 counts  undertaken anywhere in North  America, this is no surprise, as  the straits of Georgia and Juan  de Fuca are the world centre of  abundance of the species in winter.  In The Birds of British  Columbia by R Wayne Campbell, et. al., it slates: "Some have  noted that coastal aggregation of  Murrelets correspond with  coastlines dominated by old-  growth forests" and "others  have suspected that numbers  have declined al sea near areas  where extensive logging  occurred."  In passing, it is also worth  noting that Carter and Sealy  (1984) found lhat 7.8 percent of  the local autumn population of  Marbled Murrelets drowned in  gillnets set for salmon in  Barkley Sound.  Whilst is would be a notable  achievement lo find a Murrelet  nesl in the Caren, making it the  first active nest of the species  ever found in Canada, it is not  critical. All the experts agree  lhat Ihe species undoubtedly  breeds in the prime habitat lhat  the Caren provides and all the  evidence collected by Paul  Jones corroborates this.  Armed with this knowledge,  we have another piece in the  mosaic that people of goodwill  will use in making land-use  decisions in our local forests.  Presently Ihe Marbled Murrelet is designated 'threatened'  by the Committee on the Status  tnaMnmm ��� ������naf aTaalMaaaMar*  letters welcome  We welcome letters to the editor on matters of public  Interest.

Now is the time  to pro actively manage Ihe Marbled Murrelet before it is added  lo the sad list of previous avian  extinctions in Canada - the  Great Auk, the Labrador Duck,  and the Passenger Pigeon.  May Mr Thompson and Mr  Nicholson long have the privilege of observing Marbled Murrelets in good numbers off our  coast.

LEE & DALE ALLENBACK  Sechelt  Neither Harcourt nor Wilson is serving us well  My, my, we are told that British Columbia and  the Province of Quebec are the two question marks  io tbe upcoming referendum on the Canadian constitution. The Province of Quebec, of course.  That's where the constitutional battle has been  pitched since there was confederation. But British  Columbia?  To what do we attribute this strange manifestation?  Our Member of the Legislature and the Leader  of Her Majesty's Opposition in Victoria, Mr. Gordon Wilson, will no doubt be quick to attribute  BC's hesitancy to his trenchant leadership and  quite frankly I can't think of anything more appropriate to say than 'Phooey Gordon'. We'll get back  to Mr. Wilson, I suppose, before we are done here  but there is no rush.  I suppose the first thing we have to look at is  that this is a province with a clear majority of people who style themselves as conservative, or right  of centie.  It is also a province with a government which  aspires to be socialist, or whatever newspeak the  masters of politically correct terminology are  devising to describe themselves these days.  With such a government and such a majority  ready to disagree with it, it is not surprising that  initially those who are ready to disagree with  everything the government does will be the first to  musings  john burnside  be heard from.  Let me get this out of the way before we go any  further. I will vote 'Yes' on the referendum. I will  do so without any great enthusiasm for the Charlottetown Accord but without any great apprehension. I simply don'l think the matter important  enough for it to occupy the attention of die political leaders the way it has.  You might think that I was presupposed to support the NDP in their constitutional efforts. I  indeed was for most of the process. I thought Moe  Sihota lucid and effective as the Minister of Constitutional Affairs and I think, by and large the  B.C. government acquitted itself well and responsibly throughout the exercise.  But talking about falling on your face when you  come back home, boys.  I have been somewhat of an admirer of Premier  Mike Harcourt for some yean but he riled me up  something shocking with his efforts after the Charlottetown Accord was reached.  Listen, folks, you there holding down the cabinet seats and government caucus in Victoria, the  way things are going you are bidding fair yet again  to be a one-term wonder as a government. There is  another spell in the opposition wilderness waiting  for you and you are going to have no one but yourselves to blame.  Whether left or right of centre, it is arguable  that the trickiest business that an elected government has to deal with once it has attained government sums, is the control of its supporters. They  mustn't be allowed to demand too much of the  government of all the people.  This is so easy to see for the socialists when  they are discussing the right of centre parties, but  oh so difficult when they themselves are holding  the reins of power.  There are two power blocs at the present time  which are being so insensitive in their relationship  with the government they are in danger of blowing  their own political houses down.  Not to mince words, these are the trade unions  and the feminists.  It is just about a year since the government was  elected and I can remember two or three occasions  when it seemed even to this sympathetic observer  that the trade unions had simply called their government to heel. And the government obeyed.  As for the feminists, it is bad enough that the  government has been persuaded sententiously to  cry to legislate the repugnant and offensive assault  on the language which has been waged in the name  of political correctness.  Bul then Harcourt has to come blundering back  afire to be politically correct himself and  announces that the new senate is going to be gender equal, whether we have a new senate after  October 26 or whether the public wants it that way  or not.  Would somebody in Victoria remind the Premier from time to time thai the future and well  being of this country is at slake. If he wants to promote gender equality in government let him seek  office on those grounds? Until he does, let him go  softly forward.  To compound our problems we have Mr. Wilson. The Leader of the Opposition seems to have a  political range which encompasses only strident  indignation. Whether it's his view that the rate on  B.C. bonds should be five and a quarter per cent  instead of five, or his view that ten years of wandering in the constitutional wilderness are not  enough, the note is die same.  Neither the Premier nor the Leader of the Opposition have served us well recendy.  COAST^NEWS  to am*** CeM *�� ��� mm cm M M aa*M^ cl ���*���/��-< I ta/f* rant u��m  UMaM * Hi SWam Com.

This may seem  a not too ambitious approach to  life, but overall it can maybe  have a few points.  What ii can do, if consistently followed for a sufficient number of days, is translate the  watcher inio a broader, more  natural, more creative lime  frame than the one we are  increasingly being slotted or  stuffed into these days.  If the radio or TV is kept on  as background, the announcer  will be saying at least every 15  minutes, "in five seconds it will  be time for the weather report,"  or the traffic report, or whatever, and il will come clear jusl  how rigid a time frame we have  been worked into.  Some people like to go to the  tops of mountains for this effect,  but 1 will always opt for some  edge of the sea. I have lived by  the sea at various times in various places, beginning with some  of my earliest childhood memories in Cornwall, and of course,  there are always a nice lol of  things in common with ihem all.  Watching the tides at  Armours Beach I was idly  thinking back to some of these;  and watching a single blue  heron stalking at a sensible pace  along the incoming tide 1 was  somehow reminded in particular  of two brothers who came from  BC.  Their name was MacTaggart  and they were both PhDs and  they both worked al the edge of  ihe sea, but one on this coast  and the other al and over the  AUan.ic.  The Dr. MacTaggart on this  coast was a marine biologist and  the other Dr. MacTaggart was  the king of all meteorologists  over the Atlantic during the war.  I had not met the marine biologist, but the meteorologist I used  to run into from time lo time in  places like Gander and Torbay.  Meteorologists today, at least  the ones we see, tend to be quite  glamorous looking creatures,  with unfailingly dazzling smiles  as they rattle off the data for the  planet earth, as clearly depicted  by the satellite pictures. This  was not the case back then.  Back then the weatherman had  very little dope to go by, and  was often approached with  doubt from the start.  MacTaggart was an exception, the only one I think; but  MacTaggart was thought of  more as a wizard I think than a  Met man. There were people,  among them the most experienced early world flyers, who  wouldn't take off across the  Atlantic without a personal  word from MacTaggart.  MacTaggart certainly knew  all there was to be known at that  time, but in the case of any one  flight he couldn't have had any  in a nutshell  more real data than the rest had  It had to be largely personality  and he had that. A tall, craggy,  hawklike figure, he maintained  an unflinching air of total  authority, despite the fact that so  many of his pronouncements  had to have more of prophecy  about them than analysis. The  fact that he often wore a Sher-  lockian cloak I suppose did  nothing to discourage his image  of wizard.  He flew about a lot, having  die red carpet rolled out for him  here and there and stories about  him grew all around the  Atlantic. One I remember concerned a group of Russian flyers.  They took delivery of a number of flying boats from the  States in Virginia and were to  fly them to Russia over the sea,  but the CO down there became  appalled by the fact that none of  this bunch really knew anything  about flying long distances over  waler.  A number from our squadron  were told to fly as 'safety crew'  and get them at least as far as  Iceland and using little books of  stuart nutter  English/Russian we all arrived  in Gander. Here we had a conference among ourselves on the  nexl hop and enlisted the advice  of Dr MacTaggart.  He said that in this case we  should wait for optimum weather ami he would lell us when.  We pointed oul that our Russians were impatient and hard lo  persuade, and il was he. the wizard, who made the suggestion  thai we hold a series of knockout parties and simply immobilize them.  These were quite wearing as  I remember, but what I remember also was that the good doctor himself participated and with  what looked like gusto.  Looking out of the window  now I see the blue heron is back  at the edge of the water and  realize that it was somehow he  who reminded me of the marine  biologist. It is of course, SO  years ago now, but still it is  good to think of these brothers,  each in their separate media, and  different oceans, and either end  of the country; but each so fully  involved with the sea.

VARIETY ����� FOODS  Artificial reefs  enhance sea life  We are writing this letter as  certified scuba divers and as  people concerned with our environment.  It has been the contention of  many in our community that the  sinking of HMCS Chaudiere in  our local waters is an environmental wrong, much like dump  ing .300,000 pop cans into our  ocean. As scuba divers both my  husband and myself have seen  discarded pop cans on the ocean  floor. They are rusting and dirty  and ugly.  We have also seen sunken  ships on the ocean floor. One  such case in point is the Arizona  Memorial which is located on  Ihe island of Oahu in Hawaii. At  the bottom of the harbour lies an  old ship, the USS Arizona, a  vessel sunk during WWII.  In and around this ship swim  schools of beautiful tropical fish  and a wide variety of tropical  sea plants adorn this now  defunct vessel. Unlike HMCS  Chaudiere, which will have dangerous contaminants removed  and many areas closed off, the  USS Arizona sank as is. It has  in no way harmed the environment, as the abundance of sea  life around it proves.  Those in our community who  are opposed to the sinking of  HMCS Chaudiere, claiming it as  just another way of dumping  garbage, know not of what they  speak. As scuba divers on the  Coast we welcome the  Chaudiere as another great dive  spot in which to see first hand  the growth of a reef and in  which we can observe sea life  with as little disruption to their  daily habits as possible.  For these reasons, we are in  support of the sinking of  Chaudiere and hope thai Ihe  usual band of naysayers on the  Coast will noi ruin yet another  chance for us to grow and  expand.  JAYE McLACHI.AN  Sechell  Proposed phone  charges exorbitant  BC Telephone'has applied to  charge for giving out numbers  lhat are new listings or are long  distance numbers for another  area. I phoned lo see if this was  what they have in mind and  found out they definitely have  an application in to the CRTC lo  charge 50 cents any time you  have to use the above service.  The alternative is for you to  get dressed and go to the nearest  library or phone mart and look  the number up yourself, providing they have the necessary  books available. Where we have  great libraries, they are only  open certain hours and definitely do not carry phone books for  all areas of BC and we do not  have any phone marts.  The only alternative, is to  also get dressed and go to a public phone booth. They have not  figured a way to get around that  yet as most of the phone books  in booths are either not there or  the pages are so badly soiled  you can't read them.  I feel that this is not satisfactory, particularly for anyone  who is house-bound or unable to  walk to the nearest phone  booth; whenever you are trying  lo find a business number or a  new listing, or long distance  number anywhere, the 50 cent  charge is exorbitant.  I understand thai Ihe senior  citizens society of Sechell has  forwarded lo ail seniors a form  to fill oul to send to them. I really think that the newspapers and  possibly Mr. Wilson, if he is noi  so busy trying to make a name  for himself with this referendum  question, that he could maybe  bring this issue up in Ihe House.  If anyone wanls to get a petition going I would be only too  happy to donate time to sit in a  mail or outside lo collect names.  I feel that this is being  sneaked through while everyone  is preoccupied wilh Ihe referendum question.

Sechelt 885-9330  Political upheavals  seen as growing pains  from page I  Striking deals with politicians and being held up as a  shining example of co-operation  between natives and the white  community, the Sechelt band  council has lost touch with the  values and needs of its own  native communily, say members  of the younger movement.  "Our administration can deal  with financial problems, Ihey  can deal with leasing land, Ihey  can deal with buying into companies," says Jeffries. "They're  good at dealing with everything  bul the people themselves."  The group wanls  lo change the band  constitution, having a  band manager deal  with day-to-day  administration while  the chief takes care  of governmenl issues  like  land  claims.  They also want an      economic develop-  menl officer, "preferably a  native person," says Bourne,  and social programs to deal with  the problems of unemployment,  alcohol and drug abuse. "I think  this lasl year, there's more  native people on social assistance than there ever was  before," Boume says.  Chief Paul minimizes the  extent of discontent within the  band. "There's always a one per  cent militant element in any  Indian organization," he says.  The Sechelt Band's good  neighbour policy has a long history. In 1961 they donated Ihe  land for the Sunshine Coast's  only hospital, 11 prime acres on  Highway 101. They've allowed  the district's water and gas lines  lo pass through their land free of  charge, established a local  branch of Capilano College, and  supported projects such as the  local salmon hatchery, to which  they donated $30,000. Through  a district advisory council, the  350 non-natives living on band  lands have a voice in decisions.  When the Sechelt band  gained title lo their lands and  began renting space to businesses, it was heralded as the start of  economic development, vital lo  Ihe success of self governmenl.  But Ihe "concerned band members" say it hasn't necessarily  worked out that way.  Businesses renting band land  don'l employ many natives,  "We stay in  poverty while  everybody else  does good'  -JeromeJulian  except for Ihe major operation,  Ihe Construction Aggregates  gravel mine, which employs  seven band members. And  according lo Ihe group, agreements with the white tenants  make it hard for the band members lo start businesses, because  of a tacit understanding that  council won't permit competitors for Ihe present tenants.  "Thai's a good neighbour,"  comments Julian. "We stay in  poverty while everybody else  does good."  Chief Paul won't confirm or  deny such arrangements, bul  asks, "Why should  band members sel up  businesses lhal are  going to compete if  there's already an  established business?"  Former chief  Calvin Craigan, who  plans to run again  for chief in the  February elections, sees the  band's current political  upheavals as "growing pains"  on the path to compiele self-  government. "[The young band  members] see Sechelt self-government as being totally independent in every sense," he  says. "No more white advisors."  Bul perhaps the most significant concern for the younger  band members is the Sechelt  land claim, still pending negotiation with the provincial and  federal authorities.  In 1986, when self-government was granted to the Sechelt  independent of land claim  issues, the band saw it as a way  of getting to the bargaining table  faster. Bul so far, lo Ihe chief  and council's own frustration,  lhat hasn't happened.  Craigan, who sits on the land  claim negotiating committee,  believes that if the governmenl  doesn't settle the claim soon,  they'll have a more demanding  group of Indians to deal with.  While Ihe band's offer of relinquishing title to iheir lands in  return for $54 million and a  share of resources wails in the  wings, younger band members  are questioning Ihe Tightness of  what's up for negoliation.  "I feel it's leading us into  total assimilation," says Jeffries.  "To relinquish title to the land is  lo throw away what little native  is lefl in us."

Residents with questions or concerns are asked to contact one of  the nearly 50 committee members. Joel Johnstone photo  spoke lo residents about hydro's  limbing and iree removal program currently underway.  Apparently the four big storms  last winter cost hydro $410,000  in wages, etc. The corporation is  planning on returning to its poli  cy of limbing which has been  neglected for Ihe pasl 10 years  in Roberts Creek.  Also speaking to the group  was hydro's consultant, Brian  Fisher, who is an arborist (a tree  management specialist). It is his  job lo grade right-of-way trees  as either hazardous (high risk,  could fall across lines any time),  or problem trees (ones that are  growing quickly under lines and  could become hazardous).  These Irees will be removed.  There will be some limbing, bul  offending Irees will be totally  removed, not lopped.  Turner went on to say that  residents will be notified if there  is to be tree removal on their  property which poses a threat to  hydro lines. The corporation's  experts will be on hand to  ensure thai two local contractors, as well as hydro's crews  will be handling Ihe program  properly.

Hall History  The Davis Bay/Wilson Creek  Communtiy Hail was built  entirely by volunteer labour in  Ihe winter of 1951/52.  A building contractor by the  name of Don Caldwell supervised Ihe work along with Tom  Turner, Bill Scolt and Wallace  McCullough.  When it came time to lay the  water lines, most of the men in  the community went out early  one evening, finished digging  the ditch, laid the wate line in  and covered it up before going  home.  That was intensive teilln  work. The women did their  share by having coffee, tea,  sandwiches and goodies always  ready to feed the workers, some  of whom were Ralph Murray,  Ron Whitaker, Allan Gibbons,  Vic Franske, Stan Dowling,  Charlie Maywood, Hal Roberts,  Ted Cole, Bert Wright, Ted  Norburn, Earl Dawe, Charlie  Brookman, Julian Aune, Harry  Lucken, George Wright, Les  Chamberlain, Mike Jackson,  Bob Keeley, Hector McLeod  and Jack McLeod.  The first president of Ihe  association was Fred Mutter  with Jack Whitaker as vice-president. One of the first motions  that was made was to name the  grounds Whitaker Park after the  man who had donated Ihe land.  The nexl lime you have occasion to enter Ihe hall, pause for a  minute and reflect on the efforts  of those who made il possible.

The marathon, covering 10 kilometres, began at  Sechell elementary with the turnaround point and  refreshments at Porpoise Bay provincial park.  My friend and I ambled along, stopping here,  pausing there, to admire yards in the village,  blackberry bushes along the edge of Porpoise Bay  and to gaze oul at the Chaudiere moored down the  inlet.  We exchanged greetings with other marathon-  crs who all were moving faster than we were, but  no matter. On our return we were given certificates  so we could prove to our families that we had done  it.  After that we took care to replace Ihe calories  we had burned with a big fish and chip lunch at Ihe  pub overlooking Porpoise Bay. The marina was a  busy place with so many boats heading out to have  a look at the Chaudiere.  Caren tours  The Caren Range tours are soon coming to an  end for Ihis season.

But Molly s Reach has been  given a paint job and there will  be no sign of Relic or Nick or  any of the familiar faces from  the long running CBC series  The Beachcombers. In fact, Gibsons will noi even be recognizable when the current movie  begins shooting Oct. 13.  The town itself is undergoing  an ominous facelift. The name  will no longer be Gibsons either,  but Caslle Rock, Maine.  For all those Stephen King  fans oul there the name will  surely ring a bell; a church bell  perhaps? The devil has moved  into Gibsons, (oops. Castle  Rock), he's sel up shop, an  antique shop to be precise, and  the name of his store is Needful  Things.  The film is being produced  by Castle Rock productions of  L.A., which is a partnership led  by Rob Reiner. According to the  director, Fraser Heston, "Gibsons is ideal for this film  because it's a small community,  Needful  Things  director  Fraser Heston  WaMbl  Gibsons but  week to do  preliminary  work in  preparation  for niming.

The director said the story  line is similar to King's other  films Misery and The Shinning.  After the devil opens  his antique store he  begins to cause problems for residents of  the quiet little town.  He knows what you  need, but there's only  one catch, he doesn't  take cash or credit  card, you pay with a  deed.  It could be something as simple as slashing someone's tire,  but it inevitably escalates until  people are at each others throats,  literally. The moral is he preys  upon decent people's petty prejudices and jealousies, bringing  out the darker personality traits  latent in most human beings.  Garry Paller Special Effects  is coordinating the stunts and  there will be plenty of work for  his company, after all, this is a  horror film. Paller said there  will be pyrotechnics (explosions) in abundance, motorcycle  off tha arts baat  wipeouts and lots of other stunt  work.  All the exterior footage for  Needful Things is being shot in  Gibsons, while the interiors are  being filmed at North Shore Studios in North Vancouver.

Produced by Jack Cummins  and Canadian Gordon Mark and  starring Max von Sydow, Ed  Harris and Bonnie Bedelia, the  film's total budget is somewhere  between $12 million and $15  million, with major economic  spin-off for a small town like  Gibsons. The cost of carpentry  and prop construction alone is in  the hundreds of thousands of  dollars. Shooting in Gibsons is  expected to last five weeks  before moving to North Vancouver, but quiet, tranquil Gibsons may never be the same.

II,    ; leisure  Coast News, September 28, 1992 13  Pages from a Lifelog  Legend of a man named Klondike Pete  by Peter Trower  I first met Klondike Peter  Allan back in the early '70s  when I was still living in the  upholstered tool shed on my  mother's property 1 used to call  my studio.  That pokey little room served  many fitnctions beyond being a  mere place to write, ll became  an impromptu drop in centre for  artists, writers, musicians and  assorted bohemians of every  stripe and both sexes.  Had I been able to stem the  almost continuous How of visitors, I would have undoubtedly  produced a lot more work. The  fad is, I couldn't or didn't. But  it's all fire waler under the  bridge now.  At any rate, I was sitting in  the studio one morning when a  battered van pulled up at the  gate. I had a poetry reading at  Ihe local high school in a couple  of hours and wasn't in much of  a mood for early callers.' It  turned oul lo be Gordy Kellar,  an old buddy of mine, accompanied by a burly, bearded dude I  first took for a biker. I couldn't  have been more wrong.  Musician, singer, songwriter,  Peter Allan had just blown into  town from the Yukon after playing gigs all over the north, lie  was a fascinating character with  a bottomless fund of funny  yarns. A bottle of whisky  appeared. I gol so caught up in  Klondike Pete's stories, I almost  missed the reading.  Over the subsequent years, I  ran into Big Peter Allan quite  often, usually in one bar or  another where he was either performing, drinking or both.  Pete's a fine picker and a  melodic singer with an eclectic  repertoire that ranges from ragtime lo Tom Waits and includes  powerful original work like Suicide on the Installment Plan.  Part of his legend involves  the fact thai he wrote the origi-  Peter Trower  nal version of Goodtitne Charlie's gol the Blues but was  ripped off for it by another  singer who changed it slightly  and copyrighted it in his own  name.  As Big Pete and I gol to  know each other better, we  began lo talk about learning up,  writing songs together and  forming a band. Then he drifted  back east to gig around the Mar  itimes and I didn't see him for  several years.  Sometime around the mid  '80s, Pete Allan relumed to Ihe  Coast and began showing up  around the Railway Club, my  long lime Vancouver office.  Once again we kicked around  the idea of working together.  He took several of my old  songs and began writing new  arrangements. One night, I made  an ill-advised guest appearance  wilh Pete at the club where he  was playing. It was not an  unqualified success.  Nothing much happened until  I tied up with a remarkable  young guy named Alex Widen.  Alex, a close friend of Al Purdy  and his wife, and a dedicated  poetry fan, elected to do a bit of  agenting. In the summer of  1991, he managed to get  Klondike Pete and I booked into  the Squamish Logger's Festival.  Yvonne was away at a bridge  tournament so I headed up to  Squamish with Alex, the night  before the gig. We were supposed to perform at a Kinsmen's  pancake breakfast at 10 the following morning - a situation I  could scarcely even imagine.  For the first time in year of  appearing before crowds, I was  genuinely apprehensive.  We spent the night at the  Brackendale Gallery, courtesy  of Tor (I have never learned his  last name) the owner, a true hero  of the underground who rates a  column of his own.  The next morning, Big Pete  and his lady, Sue, arrived early.  We borrowed a flatdeck truck  from Tor, to serve as a stage and  drove into Squamish to set up. It  seemed the most daunting,  unlikely venue I had ever  worked.  Big Pete took note of my nervousness. "Just relax," he said,  "I've worked tougher gigs than  this. I'll go on first and warm  them up for you. It'll be a  breeze."  Klondike Pete, the seasoned  professional, did precisely that.  After three songs, the crowd  was at least paying attention. I  climbed on the truck and did my  woods stuff with Pete playing a  little guitar behind me and it all  went surprisingly well.  A couple of friends of Pete's  had videotaped the whole show.  We all headed over to the Chieftain Hotel and did an instant  replay over the TV set in the  bar. "Hey, that's just over  there," exclaimed some hun-  gover local in considerable confusion.  That was the only paid gig  I've done with Klondike Pete  Allan lo dale - but I hope it's not  the last. He's a very reassuring  partner to have on a stage with  ANNOUNCEMENT  DETROIT  DIESEL      MECHANICAL SERVICES LTD.  is pleased to announce that  effective October 1, 1992,  the truck and equipment repair  shop will be taken over by  D.G.

It's the MONSTIiR TRUCKS in a mud-slop-  pin', car crushin' display of power.  Vrrrrm.... Vrrrrm.... Hear the mighty engines  roar... The big trucks prominently parked at various locations around Sechell and Gibsons last  week - some perched on top of smaller, squashed  vehicles, others just looming dangerously - were  all part of Muddy's Bill's mud bog and monster  truck show over Ihe weekend and the odd sight  was attracting a lol of attention.  It's all part of a growing trend out of the United  States. Steve Wood is the assistant general manager of such a company, which he terms a "motor  spectacular" - Uniled Sports of America out of  Kansas City. He's a veteran of the business having  been involved since its beginnings in the lale 70s  and has performed the show lo packed stadiums  around the world including an annual show in  | Vancouver's BC Place since 1983.  They feature evenls such as demolition derbies,  car-crashing and blowing up cars wilh dynamite  but, said Wood, Ihe "heart and soul of the event"  are Ihe monster trucks.  Why? His explanation is simple: "You  wouldn't have a circus without the elephants."  They're big - weighing a minimum of 10,000  pounds, some as much as 1.1,000 pounds, wilh  tires 66 inches tall; they're fast - racing at speeds  of up to 70 miles an hour; and ihey do strange  things like jump over crushed car bodies and race  through mud bogs.   ...  In his own show, Wood said Ihey do everything  to ensure audience and driver safety, admiting that  nationwide there have been problems. Driven in  his show must be licensed under the Monster  Truck Motor Organization in Missouri which  ensures they are able to handle their man-made  beasts under emergency and difficult circumstances. The trucks too must meet weight standards and contain safety belts, fire suits, head gear  and neck braces.  But it's the thrill of potential danger that gives  ihe sport its immense popularity for both participant and viewer. "It's just exciting," said Wood, a  monster truck driver himself.  He disagreed that the event might glorify violence. "If you're into opera, 1 suppose we might  look violent. But if you're into motor events then  this is perfectly normal."  Is it a male thing? Wood said 'not strictly', saying whole families enjoy the shows - especially  Ihe kids. He admitted, however, that promotions  are aimed at men between the ages of 18 and 35  years "because they're Ihe ones with the money to  buy Ihe tickets." He said his drivers were all men  between the ages of 25 and 40.  Bill Hughes, organizer of the Gibsons' event,  declined comment on whether this is male-oriented, saying only that he would not want it inferred  that it is a "bone-crushing, macho" thing - "It's  interesting, light entertainment."  Bul after watching her 10-year-old grandson  Chad, climb in excitement over a Monster Track  parked outside Wilson Creek Plaza, Thelma Rent-  meester disagreed.  "The only difference between men and boys ia  the price of their toys," she said.  pendotgolf  MON TIME HT. FT  1:15  7:50  1:30  7:05  3.3  14.5  8.3  14.8  FRI TIME HT.

Jennifer was the first place  finisher in Ihe high school portion and Zoe won the elementary school portion in a remarkable time of 46 minutes, 5 seconds.  10 YEARS AGO  Sechelt Alderman Robert  Allen says the UBCM conference was "disappointing" in thai  few government ministers or  their assistants were available  for meetings.  He was particularly interested in speaking with BC Ferry  officials and the provincial secretary's office, but none of these  people came forward.  The Sechell Indian Band delegation returned from a successful round of Ottawa meetings,  optimistic that the machinery is  set in motion which will lead lo  the attainment of self-government.  15 YE^UtS AGO  An oil spill al Port Mellon  was successfully and quickly  cleaned up.

THE NEW CONSTITUTIONAL AGREEMENT  THE  HIGHLIGHTS  A Sodal  and  Economic Union  Over the past two years, federal, provincial and Aboriginal leaders have  consulted with thousands of Canadians and special interest groups from coast to  coast. These consultations included Royal Commissions, participatory conferences, parliamentary hearings, and hearings in the provinces and territories held  by provincial and territorial legislatures. Federal,  provincial, territorial and Aboriginal leaders have  agreed unanimously on a package of constitutional proposals that recognizes the equality of  all Canadians and represents all of our interests.  The agreement is now before Canadians.  The agreement proposes that the new  Constitution would contain a statement of  key economic and social objectives shared by all of the governments in the  federation. The objectives include comprehensive, universal, portable, accessible and publicly administered health care, adequate social services and  benefits, high quality primary and secondary education and reasonable access  to post-secondary education, collective bargaining rights and a commitment  to protecting the environment. The economic  policy objectives to be entrenched would be  aimed at strengthening the Canadian economic  union; the free movement of persons, goods,  services, and capital; ensuring full employment  and a reasonable standard of living for all  Canadians; ensuring sustainable and equitable  development.  Exclusive provincial jurisdiction would be recognized in the areas of  forestry, mining, tourism, housing, recreation, municipal affairs, cultural matters  within the province, and labour market development and training. In addition,  to ensure the two levels of government work in harmony, the government of  Canada commits to negotiate agreements with  the provinces in areas such as immigration,  regional development and telecommunications.  Federal-provincial agreements on any subject  could be protected by the Constitution from  unilateral change.  As was the case in the Meech Lake  agreement, the new Canadian Constitution  Parliamentary  Reform  Avoiding  Overlap and  Duplication  Distinct  Society  would recognize the distinct nature of Quebec, based on its French language,  unique culture and civil law tradition.  In the reformed Parliament, the Senate would reflect the equality of the  provinces while the House of Commons would  be based more on the principle of representation  by population. As well, Quebec would be  assured a minimum 25% of the seats in the  House of Commons.  The proposed Senate would be made  up of six elected senators from each province  and one from each territory. Additional seats  would provide representation for Aboriginal peoples. The reform Senate's  powers should significantly increase the role of the elected Senators in the  policy process.  The proposals recognize that Aboriginal peoples have an inherent  right to self-government and that the Constitution should enable them to  develop self-government arrangements and to take their place in the Canadian  federation. The proposals recognize Aboriginal  governments as one of the three constitutionally  recognized orders of government In Canada.  In addition, the proposals provide for a  negotiation process between Aboriginal leaders  and provincial and federal governments to  put this right into effect. The recognition of the  inherent right would not create any new rights  to land.  Now that Canada's federal, provincial, territorial and Aboriginal leaders  have reached a consensus, it is the right of all Canadians to understand the  new proposals. Call the toll free number below to receive an easy-to-read  booklet on the new constitutional agreement or a complete text.  It's your right to know what the constitutional proposals say, before  voting on October 26.

Coast News, Septemter 28,1992        21  real estate  Affording your first home requires forethought, planning  For most people, buying a  home will be the single largest  investment of their lifetime. And  most money managers will tell  you that owning a home will  also be the best investment you  cm make.  They will tell you that renting an apartment offers no security and, with rising rents, will  ultimately cost more than buying a home.  By owning a home, your  payments remain the same over  the term of the mortgage. you  build equity, and you eventually  own the home outright.  One of the most common  worries for first-time buyers is  whether or not they will be able  to afford the mortgage  payments. The first thing you  should do is talk to your real  estate sales representative or the  loans manager at your bank,  trust company or credit union to  determine how much you can  afford to pay for a home. The  general rule-of-thumb is to look  for a home where your mortgage  debt service ratio (payments for  mortgage principal, interest and  property taxes) does not exceed  30 per cent of your gross family  income.  Be prepared to supply your  potential lender with details  about your salary, other sources  of income, job history, outstanding loans and credit rating. Once  you've found the home you  want to buy, he'll require a full  description of the property and  the contract of purchase and  sale.  As for the down payment, 25  per cent of the value of the  house is typical. But a number  of government-financed programs are now available allowing higher-ratio loans of up to  95 per cent for those who simply cannot put down 25 per cent  of the purchase price.  Mortgage insurance, whereby  the bank still administers the  mortgage but the lender obtains  insurance from another source,  is available in Canada cither   '  publicly from the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation  (CMHC) or from private  sources like Ihe Mortgage Insur-  . ancC Company of Canada  (MICC), which has its own set  5 of policies. Within just two  months (February to March,  1992) after the inception in  February of CMHC's new five  per cent down payment plan for  , first-time buyers, more than  , 12,500 households had already  made use of the program.  And it's no wonder: buying a  $100,000 home today with only  five per cent down at an interest  rate of 10 per cent means  monthly payments of only $850.  Two years ago, buying the same  home with 10 per cent down at  an interest rate of 14.5 per cent  ; meant monthly payments of  : $1,089. The federal government's new Home Buyer's Plan  (not limited to first-time buyers), allowing Canadians to  withdraw up to $20,000 (or  $40,000 per couple) from their  Registered Retirement Savings  ' Plan (RRSP) toward the purchase of a home, is also helping  many first-time buyers enter the  market. RRST holders can withdraw these funds on a tax free  basis as long as the amount  withdrawn is repaid over a 15  year period.  When looking for a mortgage, one of the first things  people consider is Ihe inleresl  rate. Today, interest rales are  fairly similar among Ihe major  lenders.  Conventional lenders like  banks and trust companies generally have interest rales slightly  higher than insurance companies, credit unions and pension  funds. But the qualification  requirements of these latter  institutions may be more difficult to meet.  But there is more to a mortgage than just a rate. The size of  your mortgage payment will  also depend on the amortization  period (the length of time to  repay the loan).  The normal period is 25  years, but the shorter this period  is, the less interest you'll have to  pay in total.  To illustrate: on a $100,000  home with 10 per cent down,  monthly payments over 25 yean  are $802.  Pay $856 a month ��� another  $54 a month over 20 years ���  buying a home  and you save $48,120 ��� plus  reduce your amortization period  by five years.  You will also have to decide  on a mortgage term ��� the period of time the interest rate  remains the same. When the  term matures, you can re-negotiate the mortgage at the interest  rate that prevails at that time.  Short-term mortgages (six  months to a year) generally  carry interest rates that are 1 to  1.5 per cent lower than long-  term mortgages 5 years or mote.  With a long term mortgage.  borrowers pay a higher rate of  interest as insurance against  fluctuating interest rates.  When choosing a mortgage  term, also consider how long  you will be living in the residence.  You don't want to be paying  more each month for a five-year  mortgage if you're only going to  be living in the home for a couple of years.  You will also have to choose  between a fixed rate (where the  interest rate remains the same  throughout the term of the mort-  by steve sawyer  gage) or a floating rate (which  tends to fluctuate based on the  Bank of Canada rale). Generally, if you foresee a drop in interest rates during the mortgage  teim, you may prefer a floating  rate: at least you'll have peace  of mind knowing what your  payments will be throughout the  mortgage term.  Then there's the choice  between an open and closed  mortgage. With an open mortgage, the key benefit is flexibility because you can prepay the  principal whenever you want.  with or without penalty. With a  closed mortgage you are locked  in at current rates and will not  be able to pay down on your  principal. Most lenders offer  closed mortgages, though many  banks and trust companies are  now also offering prepayment  privileges on closed mortgages  as you can make additional  lump sum payments once a year  to reduce the principal, or  increase the amount of your  monthly payment to pay off the  mortgage faster.  (The most flexible loan is a  short term fully open mortgage  (currently about 9.25 per cent  for six months and 9.5 for one  year.) Ideally, you would like to  lock in just before rates go up. If  you want security, go for a long  term closed mortgage, ideally  with a low, fixed interest rate  (currently about 9.75 per cent  for three yeais and 10.25 per  cent for five). Long term open  mortgages are usually obtainable only from private lenders  and an additional charge is often  involved.  Overall, when shopping for a  mortgage, decide what is most  important to you ��� the lowest  interest rate, security or flexibility.  With more new products than  ever available to residential  mortgage borrowers, no two  mortgage packages are the  same.  So shop prudently and strategically for the package that best  suits your circumstances.  Also, keep in mind, that when  applying for a mortgage, you ate.  committing to payments  involved in the preparation of  mortgage, such as appraisal  costs and legal fees, and Goods  and Service Tax (GST) charges  on these services.  ��� SUNSHINE COAST INSURANCE AGENCIES LTD ���  AUTOPLAN  Must everyone pay  19% more?  r&  ���%*  No!

St.  r  I  COPE  trains for  disasters  by Roxanne Gregory  Seventy centimetres of snow  falls on the Lower Mainland  and Sunshine Coast. Schools  and businesses close by mid  afternoon of the first day. The  temperature begins to drop, bul  it keeps on snowing. Winds  gust to 75 km on day iwo of the  worst snowstorm to hit the  Sunshine Coast in a century.  Roads remain impassable  except for emergency vehicles.  By day three the temperature  has dropped to record lows of  minus 25. Hydro and telephone  lines go down. People begin lo  panic. Candles and chimney  fires result in several uncontrolled blazes which demolish  homes in Sechelt and Gibsons.  Side roads are snowed in.  Emergency services are  strained to the limit and cannot  respond to the number of people who need heat, food and  medical aid. Families without  heat need to be evacuated.  Emergency shelters can'l be  accessed because most roads  are impassable.  Sound impossible? Not  according to Provincial Emergency Plan coordinator Chris  Caldwell.  Caldwell knows that in the  event of a disaster, whether it's  a snowstorm or an earthquake,  emergency services will not be  able to meet the widespread  needs of people. "We need to  make neighbourhoods as self-  sufficient as possible. If the disaster hits the Lower Mainland  as well, it will be a long time  before we get help here.  We've got to be prepared."  With that in mind, Caldwell  is hoping to establish a COPE  (Community Oriented Preparation for Emergencies) leader in  every neighbourhood on the  Coast. These volunteers will  act as a Provincial Emergency  Plan liaison and be under the  direction of the local area manager.  Among other things, iheir  jobs are to identify the "assets"  in each neighbourhood. They  will know who has first aid  training, who has portable generators and other specialized  equipment. They will also be  responsible for checking on the  needs of people in Iheir neighbourhoods, as well as providing  "intelligence" about the status  of their neighbourhood in an  emergency.  Caldwell is hoping io train  these volunteers in a series of  short seminars. "Education is a  big part of the plan," he said.  "The COPE reps will talk to  their neighbours about what  they need to keep on hand in  an emergency, what kinds of  precautions they should lake."  Caldwell further suggested  that in an emergency, people  should turn their radios to CBC  690 AM for information.  The first draft of the Coast  Emergency Plan has been completed and Caldwell will be forwarding it to the emergency  committee for adoption.
