 Victoria. �����--��� "  COAST^NEWS  50 cents per copy on newsstands  Illegal dumping  plagues Creek  by Stuart Burnside  Something smells in Roberts  Creek and il's the garbage people are illegally dumping along  logging roads and the power-  line.  "There's quite a bit of it, as  you can see," said environment  minisrty conserva-        tion officer Doug  Pierce on a tour up  the B and K logging  road Friday.  He points to a  pile of lumber and  home renovation  garbage under the  powerline and says,  "That's new. That  stuff wasn't here  yesterday."  The lumber is ~~~~~  mixed in with Iruckloads of old  branches and garden debris, as  well as larger bits of home  appliances.  "The branches and stuff  aren't too bad," Pierce says,  "except that seeing them  dumped there encourages other  people with less desirable  'This might  have been a  place people  would stop/or  a picnic in tbe  summer. But  not now'  -Doug fierce  "Once an illegal dump gets  started," he adds, "it's damn  hard to stop."  Pierce says there are a number of reasons why people dump  illegally; some people are "just  plain lazy" and don't want to  take the time to drive to the  regional landfill near Sechelt.  Others are avoiding dumping  fees charged at the landfill.  "None of the reasons are  very good," Pierce says, "but  that's the way it goes."  Farther up the B and K logging road there is another pile of  _________     debris.  This one  contains mainly  household garbage,  cardboard boxes,  and a dead cat with  a cast on its leg.  "This kind of stuff  is the worst of all,"  Pierce says looking  around a small  clearing where the  dumping has taken  place. "This might  have been a place  people would stop for a picnic  in the summer. But not now."  He says his ministry doesn't  have the money or time to clean  up illegal dump sites. Unless the  culprits are caught and are willing to clean the mess up, the  garbage will most likely stay  where it is.  "Usually I give people a  chance to clean it up," Pierce  said. "They suil get a ($50) ticket, but they don't have to go to  court.  "In court the judge sets the  fine and it's usually a lot more  than $50."  turn to page 2  Cedar Grove students put indoor sports through a frenzied  pace on a special half day of school Feb. 19. Eight teams played  16 events, such as skateboard racing, packing the gym along  with teachers and parents. Joel Johnstone photo  pagt 6  pagt It  13  fat  NgytiQQse t-^t range^targetted in annual peace vigil  by Jane Seyd  Members of the Sunshine Coast peace  group return today from taking part in  their fourth annual peace vigil held outside the Nanoose military testing range,  planned for this weekend on Vancouver  Island.  The group, along with other peace  organizations, hoped to meet with military officials at the base to discuss concerns and raise questions about the need  for such continued military operations.  They were also to present recommendations from the Canadian Peace  Alliance.  "It redefines what security is" and  brings out issues of social justice and  peacekeeping as more important to current survival than the sort of weapons  testing done at Nanoose,,        said local peace group  member Denise Lagasse.  The group also planned  to voice objections to government spending of $5 billion on military helicopters,  supposedly used to protect      Canada from nuclear submarines,  Lagasse.  "The only submarines we're aware of  in the Strait of Georgia are the ones they  invite here."  'It's really  a passe" thing,  this military base'  - Denise Lagasse  said  Lagasse said the Nanoose military  base continues to be a concern of the  local peace group because "it's right out-   ;     side our door."  Concern in the past has  centred on possible contamination of Georgia  Strait in the event of an  accident involving U.S.  nuclear submarines, which  visit the base.  "With the Cold War ending there really has to be a question about why we continue to risk our environment to maintain  it," said Lagasse.  Over the years, various peace groups  have campaigned to get the base converted to a emergency centre which could  react to environmental disasters, such as  an oil spill in coastal BC waters.  "It's really a passe thing, this military  base," said Lagasse.  Other recent activities of the Sunshine  Coast peace group have included showing of Manufacturing Consent, a film  about American media critic Noam  Chomsky, which attracted a large crowd  to a showing at Roberts Creek school.  An upcoming speaker for the group  will also describe a recent peace vigil  held in Nevada, a frequent site for U.S.  nuclear testing and storage.  Rebuilding a classic 1920s diesel tug  by Jane Seyd  She has the "Cadillac of  diesel engines," knotty cedar in  her cabins and two-inch fir  planking beneath her decks.  Originally, she was built as  the Dan King in North Vancouver in 1924, a tugboat which  pulled scows and log booms in  the inside straits as far as Alaska,  for companies like the Gulf of  Georgia and Straits Towing.  But after almost 70 years of  work, the Nanaimo Tillicum (as  she's been called since the early  1960s) will get a chance to see  the coast another way, after a  major rebuilding project is finished by Bill Thompson and Jack  Cumming of Tillicum Towing in  Garden Bay.  "The old girl's worked quite  a few years, so we're fixing it up  and I'm going to wander around  the coast with it," says Thompson.  "Old tugboat guys like old  tugboats," says Cumming. "They  don't like the new modem steel  boats. These (towboats) are  quiet and they cruise nice.  They're comfortable. They just  require a lot of maintenance."  On the float at Garden Bay,  where the Nanaimo Tillicum is  tied up next to another working  tugboat, the Hunter, a 54-inch  brass propeller that's been re-  pitched to the boat's engine and  reduction gear lies shining in the  afternoon sun. Cumming estimates it weighs about 400  pounds.  Inside the boat there are  wrenches, pliers, a saw, a mallet  and buckets of nails and cans of  wood finish among orange  extension cords.  Where the towing winch used  to be, there's a stateroom built of  tongue-in-groove cedar. "A lot  of the old boats had that years  and years ago... I just got tired of  arborite," says Cumming.  To begin the process of  rebuilding the working boat into  a cruising tug, the whole vessel  was first gutted with a power  saw. "We just cut it all out,  threw it on the wharf and threw  it away," says Cumming.  Left were the walls and the  sides of the hull. Everything else  has been carefully rebuilt again,  with some exceptions like the  original stand for the steering  wheel in the forward cabin.  Cumming, who worked on the  Nanaimo Tillicum for 13 years  around logging camps in the  mainland inlets, says there's a  sentimental value to rebuilding  an old boat: "It's not really heritage... but if you let them all go  nobody would ever know what  they were like."  In the engine room, there's  another classic feature with an  11-foot long, eight cylinder 1950  Gardner engine. "Every boat  guy dreams of owning a Gardner  like this," says Cumming. "Its a  very impressive machine and  they're very hard to get"  While not very powerful for a  working tug, for a cruising boat,  the engine has an especially nice  feature: it hardly makes any  noise. "It's like a big sewing  machine," says Cumming.  Jack Cumming pauses from work, while the Nanaimo  Tillkum's propeller lies in the foreground. Jane Seyd photo  To put the engine in, it was  driven up to Earl's Cove on a flat  bed truck and dropped in with a  log loader. The roof was built up  afterwards.  In addition to the engine,  there are custom-made main fuel  tanks which carry 800 gallons  each, as well as two auxiliary  fuel tanks, two water tanks and a  110-volt generator.  turn to page 12  Fisheries department  launches new board  in consultation effort  by Jane Seyd  With controversy over the  government's aboriginal fisheries strategy continuing among  commercial fishermen, last  week the Department of Fisheries and Oceans (DFO)  announced the creation of a new  advisory board on the issue  which will bring together native  groups and commercial fishing  interests.  But not everyone has seen  that as a solution to their problems.  On Tuesday, the fisheries  department announced the new  board after a meeting in Vancouver between John Crosbie,  federal fisheries minister, and  various fishing interests.  The idea behind the board is  to get commercial fishermen  and native groups meeting on a  regular basis to help each side  gain a better sense of the policy,  said Patrick Chamut, regional  director general of fisheries.  "It's evident when you're dealing with a single group it  doesn't do much to foster  understanding."  One role of the new board  will be to advise the department  about local implementation of  the native fishing agreements.  But Chamut said the department has no plans to either  abandon the policy or to include  the commercial fishermen in  actual negotiations.  With 196 agreements to  complete, "It's not feasible nor  is it appropriate to have someone sitting in on these negotiations between the DFO and the  native bands," he said.  That has not sal well with the  recently formed Fisheries Survival Coalition, which has so far  not been invited to take part on  the new advisory board, and  calls the move an attempt to  placate the fishing industry.  Since native fishing agreements are to be completed by  the end of March, they will be  signed by the department before  the consultation process is even  up and running, says the coalition. A rally protesting the  native fishing policy, to be  attended by local coalition  members, was to be held this  past weekend on the steps of the  Victoria legislature, along with  the BC Wildlife Federation and  the SHARE forest alliance.  Meanwhile, the past president of the United Fishermen  and Allied Workers Union said  the organization would participate in the new board.  While not happy with the  policy, Jack Nichol said it  would be better to know what's  going on than to be completely  excluded from discussions. But  he added, "We're invited as a  sort of appendage to the proceedings..There are no commitments to buy into the process." Coast News, March 1, 1993  Union challenges mediator credentials  Contract talks in the Bayside  mill lockout scheduled for last  weekend broke down Saturday  because of inexperienced mediation, according to IWA Local 1-71  warden Murray Cantelon.  Cantelon said Bayside workers'  negotiating team doesn't think  government-appointed mediator,  Larry Gregg, has enough knowledge of mill operations. "Our  negotiating committee wants us to  continue to pursue non-binding  mediation," Cantelon said  Wednesday when describing the  state of affairs in the Bayside Mill  lockout. "... But we want to try to  get another mediator in here."  Cantelon noted Bayside had  "upped the stakes" in the conflict  by cutting worker's medical benefits after Saturday's talks broke  down.

"I thought of it as a way to  get kids more involved globally  and to help someone out," said     Patty Dressier, who  introduced the pro-  saying this is the way things  should be done and (teachers)  shouldn't be doing it either," she  said.  Upon hearing this concern,  Marus said she was upset that it  hadn't been brought forward to  her earlier.  "If people are feeling like  that," she said, "that really both  ers me. Obviously I got  enthused about this and others  didn't..."  Roberts Creek elementary  principal Jack Pope further  defended the project. "You  always have to make a judgment  call," he said.

Asked not be named in order  that no teacher or school be  adversely affected by negative  feelings, the couple said they  felt the way the program had  been implemented in the schools  was "highly unethical.  "I think this is a very serious  issue that needs to be discussed," said the mother whose  child was involved in the program.  "It's not that we're against  charity," she said, "but children  should be free to do what they  want to do."  By approaching a child in a  classroom situation, if that child  chooses not to participate,  he/she becomes an "outsider,"  she said.

Wilson made the comment in response to a letter addressed to the  school board from the Sechelt Chamber of Commerce. The letter,  signed by chamber president Patrick Hobbs, raises concerns on the  literacy rate within Elpinstone and questions a recent public advertisement requesting the services of volunteers to read exams lo students with serious reading problems.  "We would appreciate it if you would let us know why some students at Elphinstone are having serious reading problems," the letter  says. "You will be aware of the fact that our business community  will find it extremely difficult to employ high school graduates with  serious reading problems,  "Everything possible should be done by educators to help such  students to acquire reading proficiency."  Wilson said the advertisement r> es not reflect a serious problem  within the school system.  "The reality is that three per cent of BC's population is either  mentally handicapped or face other barriers to reading. That proportion is reflected in our school," he said.  "We can't start excluding them because they are not able to read.  We try and involve them as much as we can."  Wilson said many of Ihe special needs students need help only  during exam time, during Ihe actual process of reading.  "Many have actually mastered the concepts and skills," he added.  He said in his own opinion, illiteracy is not a big problem in BC.  "It may be a national problem," he said, "I don't know. But not in  BC."  Wilson said members of the chamber were welcome to come into  the school and look at the educational programs, in particular the  level of skill needed to pass a provincial exam, if they had any further concerns.  mm Coast News, March 1,  1993  news  Sharing ups, downs of treeplahting life  Part Ihree in a series  by Darah Hansen  It's the end of February and  David Fuller is packing up once  again, preparing to leave his  Gibsons' home.  It's a move he's well used to,  having done the same thing for  the past five years - living six  months on the Sunshine Coasl  and six months somewhere in  the woods of British Columbia.  "The hazards of a seasonal  vocation," he says.  Fuller is a treeplanter, one of  approximately 2,300 individuals  employed in this aspect of the  silviculture industry every year  in this province. '  A recent emigrant from  Soulh Africa, Fuller said planting was the first job he landed  when he came to Canada.  "I was new to the country...it  seemed like something that was  quite appealing," he says. "I  think it was something new,  meeting new people."  He adds, "I've never been  quite sure of just how long I  planned on staying (in Canada)  so I didn't want to get involved  in something long term."  Of his first year's experience,  his memories are good.  "I thought ihe people were  incredibly accepting," he says.  "It didn't matter who you were  or where you came from. They  were just really warm and  friendly." That's important, he  adds, because the nature of the  work is so difficult.  "People have to deal with  strong emotions of having to  work hard day after day and one  way of getting by is by being  spontaneous lo one another,  being supportive."  And it's really an interesting  mix of people, he says, men and  women, many highly educated.  "I worked with a guy who had a  Ph.D in nuclear physics," he  says. Fuller himself holds a  teaching certificate.  It really seems to attract a  certain mindset, he says. "You  need a certain kind of mindset,it)' >fi  fit .     >lr.ul   la .'..\'<r\ v.Icn  Art by Rick Lowe.  deal with what you are doing.  Some people come out Ihere and  they'll last two days, they'll say  no, not for me... bul people  come out and they just manage  to deal with it.  "There's this kind of strength  there, this mental strength."  It certainly wasn't Ihe money  lhat kept him going      that first year, he '  says. He was planting only 300 lo 400  trees a day, earning  at most $100. After  camp costs, which  run at about $20 a  day, and paying for  necessary equipment, "It becomes a        lol less," he says.  But the other planters were  encouraging. They helped him,  gave him advice on how to better his technique, and some people even planted trees for him.  "They really supported me,"  he says. "It was satisfying the  first time I planted a 1,000 trees.  It was greal."  Fuller says it wasn't until his  second year I lint to .started carn-  Tbere's this  kind of strength  there, this  mental strength'  - David Fuller  llli-ail.il'   'I'lll''  Ml I||V,  ing a lol of money. With the  planting techniques learned and  a new ability to focus on the job  at hand, "I was there to work."  He was planting between  1,000 and 1,500 trees a day on  flat, but unprepared ground up  around Mackenzie. He remembers, "I was making about $200       a day."  But despite the  high numbers, he  says he found the  experience boring.  "You basically  have to run all day  likea jackrabbit.  "The ground  I'm     on     now      involves    more  thinking. You  have to really read il... you may  be dealing with roots or rocks or  places where (Ihe forestry company) doesn't want you to plant.  "There are just a lot more criteria to take into account."  Fuller explains thai he works  for Backwoods Contracting, a  small company which contracts  primarily between Smithers and  Terrace. Itfs.tricky ground up  Barriers muffle g^vel complaints  by Jane Seyd  Almost a year since the last  public meeting on the Construction Aggregates gravel operation, the problem of noise from  the pit is moving slowly towards  a resolution.  Most recently the company  has shut down the night shift  doing actual mining, says local  manager Ray Collier, so all digging with front-end loaders  stops al 11 pm.  "The mining has been the  biggest complaint," he says.  The company has also put  special mufflers on the front-end  loaders, built a sand berm and  erected two plywood sound baffles.  "I haven't heard it lately,"  says Sechell mayor Nancy  MacLarty. "If they are closing  down the graveyard shift it's  certainly helping."  Sechelt resident Dana Sheehan, who's experienced noise  problems in the past agrees:  "There have been some  improvements for some of the  residents."  That doesn't mean noise  from the plant is a problem  complelely solved, however.  A primary screening plant, a  sand plant, and a slone screening plant still operate around Ihe  clock, and residents in different  parts of Sechelt hear different  machinery, says MacLarty.  She says real proof of the  new measures will come later in  Ihe year, when people want to  sleep with their bedroom windows open: "Not many people  are out there listening in minus  six weather."  Last month, after discovering  the Mines Act takes precedence  over local noise bylaws,  MacLarty wrote a letter to Anne  Edwards, the provincial mines  minister, asking that something  be done about it.  "It's a very unique situation  where you have a huge gravel  operation basically in the middle  of a municipality," she says,  calling the Mines Act "not very  comforting."  "It's news to me in what  scope (the Mines Act) has," says  MacLarty. "I know Anne  Edwards wouldn't want to be  living next to it."  But meanwhile the local  manager of the gravel operation  says the company has tried to  co-operate wilh the district.'  "Anybody makes a sound in  Sechelt and Construction Aggregates gels blamed," says Collier.  Recently, Ihe gravel operation shut down completely during December and January, and  "we got noise complaints when  we weren't even running," he  says, adding that people have  become used to blaming the  gravel pit for every loud noise  they hear.  Collier says he's met wilh  people complaining about noise,  even at 4:30 in the morning. But  in one instance, "a guy who  fired up a chainsaw across the  bay drowned it out," he says.  MacLarty gives the company  credit for taking action, but says  significant measures have been  a long time coming.  Meanwhile, Sheehan says  since new management took  over al the gravel pit, there's  been a new willingness to work  with the communily.  "I realize it's a compromise,"  she comments.  1ArCt5tA*  ��� Perms $45  ��� Cuts $10  ��� Noniiclloaving   ��� Longer lasting  ��� Lighter sveight    ��� Minimum  ..  __,  malntenance  ��� No primer  ��� Odourless  Brenda'  Hiaahwav IOI dibsons  III,   Sl   III   Alllls   S   Rl'SlaHHaSllH  886-4805  820 KIWANIS WAY, GIBSONS  m  Enjoy An Active - Carefree Lifestyle  22 Quality Patio homes - Adult Oriented, Single Level  Prices start at $133,800 - 2 Bedroom, 2 Bath Homes  (Wl*  (604)886-4680  For fiirther information contact:  TWIN OAKS DEVELOPMENT CORP.

But il's that level of difficulty  which keeps the competition  down and consequently his own  company's wages up.  When the ground becomes  Batter and easier, he says, that's  when the competition starts lo  get intense.  I Fuller says he's heard Ihe stores of bad money being made  by Ihose working for low-bidding contractors. "It's a very  mobile occupation," he says,  with planters always jumping  from contract to contract, always  looking for the best money. By  word of moulh, stories filter in  about conditions elsewhere.  "There are some scary stories," he says. "Especially in the  interior, planters are just not  milking any money." It's a trend  he's noticed over the last five  years, he says, less and less  ground to plant, lower and lower  prices.  But to Fuller that's not necessarily bad news, "I don't see  treeplanting as a long-term  career opportunity in BC.  "I'm in favour of the forest  giving us a living but I think  there are other ways to find  employment in the forest...better  ways of using what we have."  lie says the recent shift in the  silviculture industry from its  previous emphasis on reforestation to maintaining existing  plantations is much needed.  He's come back to loo many  sites that he's planted in the past  only to have to replant them.  "We've come across so many  instances of disease and trees  being browsed by moose and  deer," he says. "In some cases  it's quite scary." "  Asked if Iree planters are  environmentalists, he says, "I  think, by and large, yeah.  "There's always a lot of agonizing when you drive into  another large clearcut - whether  you'll be planting it, whether  your trees are going lo survive."  t.>..     11 ..  -   would like to dumk the Community for your  support at the Feb. 20 "Comedy Night"  fundraiser.

Here in BC, there is a  certain fawning unctuousness in the way Vancouver Centre MP Kim Campbell's name is being thrust into the face  of anyone with the courage to crack open the pages of a  city paper these days.  Our Kim. the stalwart hopeful who as a provincial  rookie tossed her hat into the Socred leadership ring with  Vander Zalm and the duelling Smiths in 1986.  Controversial Kim, who soon struck out at the "style  no substance" leadership of Ihe Fantasy Zalm and publicly broke ranks over her provincial party's attempts to  legislate abortion out of medicare, later ushering in her  own restrictive legislation at the national level.  Savvy Kim. who as Justice Minister elevated boudoir  barrister photography to its apogee in a snap worthy of a  Vanity Fair cover.  Bold Kim. shuffled from the justice department to  become Canada's first woman defence minister, sending  pundit tongues a twitter with speculation that the move  was, indeed, a promotion, a grooming for higher office.  And now every western political strategist in the land  is hitching the proverbial wagon to the Kim phenomenon,  touting the outspoken, frequently strident MP, as the  nearest thing to the farthest thing from the old order represented by Mulroney and his cronies that the desperate  Tories are likely to find.  This is not to reflect too harshly on the travails of Kim  Campbell in her meteoric rise up the political ladders of  the nation, only to forewarn of the sell job emerging as  geographic parochialism asserts itself at the head of the  Tory leadership onslaught in the West.  True, there are other names being touted about, that  heaven forbid should even entertain the prospect of  attaining the prime ministership of this country. The  bumbling and ineffectual Perrin Beatty for example. Or  the embattled Michael Wilson, Bay Street's boy in blue.  Or the dour Barbara McDougall, immigration's mistress  of discontent.  But Benoit Bouchard? A tireless and principled campaigner with strong ties in Quebec and respect in the  party. Or Jean Charest, a fresh face with an unusually  high profile on the federal scene ... then again, maybe not  another leader from Quebec.  Yes, there will be powerful regional forces at work in  the jostling for a new Tory leader in the coming months.  Timing is critical, and say what you will about our  departing prime minister, he has made the one move  capable, perhaps, of reviving the Tories' sagging fortunes. The publicity around the contest will invariably  steal Liberal fire at a time when the uncharismatic Jean  Chretien, whose party is comfortably ahead in the polls,  will be needing to put on steam. Neither will it serve the  interests of the ailing NDP, still struggling for a national  voice in leader Audrey McLaughlin.  Yes, it's head-hunting season again in Canada, as the  polls turn. Election fever isn't be far behind.  Number error  An error in last week's editorial, 'All is not well on the  recreation front', reported that $300,000 was available for  a Healthy Communities project on the Coast. The figure  should have read $30,000.  Of that potential sum, $2,600 was spent last year on  community meetings.  Tim Hone  HeaoH cane...  Use Shaw land  for recreation  An open letter to Mayor  Eric Small  The land given to ihe town  would be an ideal localion for a  central recreational facility. By  making it accessible with subsidized transit service from Eairls  Cove to Port Mellon, it could  serve the entire regional district.  Now that it is seen that a vast  number of Sunshine Coast residents are in favour, may  demand recreational facilities  and you have admitted the  extremely expensive parkland in  lower Gibsons is an eyesore,  isn't it time after these many  long years to at least fix the  fence and plant some grass?  You, sir, and the councillors  of Gibsons, Sechelt and the  directors of the SCRD have to  see thai non-cooperation is hurt-j  ing tbe lax bearers they are  sworn to serve.  Rather than set up another  agency to deal with recreational  matters why not have the elected bodies of the Coast see that  recreational facilities are a top  priority? Have a plan. Go to referendum. Get the money. Now.  J.V. ROZENTALS  Gibsons  Bayside turning to  'emotional terrorism'  Finally, Bayside management has shown its true colours.  The skull and crossbones!  Meeiing with the mediator  we had requested, our negotiating committee did its best to get  the crew back to work and further a dialogue with management over outstanding issues.  The company refused to even  make an offer. Their strategy is  now clear. Starve the crew until  ihey come back, cap-in-hand, to  beg for their jobs on management's terms.  They are also targeting our  families directly. The union has  been informed that the company  is cutting off our benefit payments. It is common practice for  companies in labour disputes to  pay the benefit plans and then  bill the workers when they  return to work. But not Bayside.  Cutting the medical coverage  of our children while we struggle by on strike pay is just the  sort of tactic we have come to  expect in this dispute. From the  start of the lockout, the company has campaigned to starve us  into submission. They offer no  carrot lo go with the stick.  Luckily, the union will cover  the benefit payments, so that the  health of our families is not at  risk. Secure in the knowledge  that someone cares, we will  tighten our belts over bellies full  of rage and not bow to emotional terrorism. We will win this  dispute!

I was in  shock when I heard management had cut off our medical  plan, something we have always  had, not just for us workers, but  it's a life sustaining necessity  when you have kids or a pregnant wife.

This campaign is to inform  people in matters relating to the  Aboriginal Fishing Strategy.  One part of our information  program has been public  forums.  During a recent public meeting at Pender Harbour I made  remarks about aboriginals being  exempted from the recent Federal Firearms Bill CI7. 1 made  these statements from material  which I had not substantiated. I  have since checked into this  information and found that aboriginals are covered under Bill  CI7.  I apologize for the incorrect  information I conveyed at that  meeting. Thank you for the  opportunity to straighten the  record.  RONALD MALCOLM  Madeira Park  More than Irish blarney was needed this time, Brian  It would have been interesting to watch the  Brian and Bill show in the weeks and months to  come, presuming that friend Brian didn't see the  writing on the wall and retire to write his memoirs.  We are speaking here, of course, of Brian Mulroney, Prime Minister of Canada, and Bill Clinton,  President of the United States.  Prime Minister Mulroney enjoyed the most  remarkable relationships with President Clinton's  predecessors. Whether ii was singing 'While Irish  Eyes are Smiling' with President Ronald Reagan  or going fishing with President George Bush, our  boy Brian achieved a remarkable closeness with  tbe first two presidents of the United States with  whom he had to deal, culminating with Brian and  Myla being the house guests of George and Barbara during the last weekend the Bushes spent at  the presidential retreat at Camp David.  There are good and understandable reasons why  this was so, and equally good and understandable  reasons why a like intimacy with President Clinton  wis almost certainly not on the cards.  On the personal level, Brian Mulroney has, as  long as he has had memory, been adroit al ingratiating himself with older Americans. There are stories about the boy from Baie Comeau being trotted  out at a very early age to sing in his sweet boy  soprano for the President of the Iron Ore Company  musings  john burnside  of Canada. He has been polishing those skills of  ingratiation all his life.  He prospered to become Mmself the President  of the Iron Ore Company ��f Canada and at the  behest of his American mastft was the overseer of  the closure of tbe plant in his hometown.  Mulroney took a lifetime of practice at being a  loyal and ingratiating underling of American leaders into his relationships with Reagan and Bush.  President Reagan and President Bush loved the act  and esteemed the Canadian Prime Minister. It is a  wise man indeed who will not leam to love unceasing flattery well applied.  Politically, too, Mulroney fit right into the prevailing political wisdom of the Reagan and Bush  years. Along with Margaret Thatcher of Great  Britain, the three North American leaders were at  the forefront of the laissez-faire conservatism  which was all the rage in the misspent '80s.  Only Mulroney was left still in charge today.  Despite the doctrinaire ebullience of these primitive capitalists, the economies of the countries they  led and in which their doctrines held sway are all  in serious difficulties today. From being an insider's insider, Mulroney was left behind by political  events outside his own country like something that  was missed when tbe movers came.  Couple all this with the fact that Mulroney was  dealing with a very different President thain he has  had to deal with before, and tbe seeds of difficulties to come were well and truly sown.  Again on tbe personal level, it is by no means  an irrelevance that for the first time in his life Mulroney was having to deal with a vastly more powerful leader, younger than himself. Tbe ingratiating  skills of flattery and deference which have stood  Mulroney in good stead all his life were unlikely to  be effective with Bill Clinton.  Nor did it seem likely that Mulroney, at least in  his own eyes a veteran international leader, would  have been able to bring himself to play the role  with bis accustomed smoothness and willingness  for this neophyte President.  On tbe heels of bis first visit to Washington the  first cracks had begun to appear. One prominent  American newspaper commented that the Canadi  an Prime Minister appeared to lecture the American President on the importance of the Canada-  United States relationship in his remarks at the  close of the visit. Public hectoring does not  bespeak a meeting of the minds in the preceding  private talks.  Politically, Mulroney was meeting an American  President who has been by far the most outspoken  and effective critic of the kind of economics for  which Mulroney has been a tireless, if unconvincing, advocate throughout his years in power.  It is not just that Clinton has castigated the disastrous economic records of Reagan and Bush during the 12 years they led the world's most powerful economy. Lately, he has had some extremely  harsh things to say about some of Mulroney's own  most determined economic initiatives, albeit indirectly. The giant pharmaceutical companies come  immediately to mind and I may have more to say  about this on another occasion.  President Clinton can barely conceal his contempt and anger at the damage done by Mulroney's  friends in the White House. Mulroney has been an  uncritical supporter and emulator of those policies  without exception. It was going to take more than  Irish blarney this time, Brian. It was time to resign  and join your buddies in the pasture.  Let somebody else have a go.  COAST5'NEWS  Suetcrlpoon ffjfu for  IA# Cosst /VStf?

British exodus or just tradition}  A week ago there was a big  poll in Britain, headline stuff in  the London Observer and widely picked up here by TV and  radio, which came up with the  shivery news that 49 per cent of  all Brits would now like to  move out of the country 'if they  could.'  This could seem to be a  shocking insight into the real  stale of mind of the Brits, whom  many of us like to think of as  happily homebound and cozily  conventional. As it was retailed  to us here, or as I heard it, it  came over wiih quite various  comments, trailing quite different questions, different points of  view.  One, whose name I didn't  catch, came on with the utmost  seriousness saying that this  unmasking of the true underlying convictions of almost half of  all lhe people meant that the  British thing, going back to  before Alfred the Great, was  finally spinning apart, ll was not  everyone, you gathered, who  would be shedding many tears.  Others were more frivolous.  How did Princess Di respond to  the poll? How did the queen?  How would it affect the tourist  bureau? (Who wants to go to a  country where half Ihe people in  it are doing their utmost to  leave?)  Could some of them feel  strongly enough to have a go at  populating Ellesmere Island?  Mainly, however, it must be  said that this was taken straight  as a ground level revelation of a  genuine and deep depression  now permeating the land that  kept its cheer through the blitz,  etc. As such, I guess it can be  taken seriously, but from which  point of view?  For one thing, do these ardent  escapees have any clear idea of  where they want to go? Supposedly a man, however trapped in  Leeds or wherever, still doesn't  want to go to Somalia. There  will be almost infinite gradations on this theme. People,  asked by a poll if they would  like to leave the country 'if they  could' may have some ideal  notion of Tahiti or Bali in mind.  But what we will all realize  encountering a story like this, is  that most of these would-be  adventurers are going to have  Canada in mind. It's hard to get  into the US, Australia is loo far  away, few people, if any, must  be wanting to move to South  Africa these days. There are all  sorts of interesting and eminently livable places dotted about,  but Canada is going to be, is  now in some millions of dreams,  the Mecca for this lot.  Figures are not things that I  remember well, but 49 per cent  of the population of the UK is  something like 24 million Brits.

There would be so many  points of concern. Oui* notion,  and ours is the only one, of multiculturalism would be a strong  but shadowy factor. Should it  become a United Nations thing,  should it be put that these unfortunates would otherwise die of  ennui or whatever they think ails  them, I doubt it would make any  difference. On the basis of this  poll then, we are left with an  image of 24 odd million Brits  poised on the cliffs there with  nowhere to go.  The fact, of course, to my  mind anyway, is that little, if  anything, has been revealed by  this poll. If you had taken a similar poll in Elizabethan times  you might well have had more  than 49 per cent prepared to  leave. Many, of course, over all  those centuries did leave, the  founding fathers of America, for  example. It seems most probable  that goodly numbers of Brits  stuart nutter  1 have been ready to leave 'if they  : could' for many, many years.  Slill there are all these stories  I of the down-skid of Britain. Too  many people, some flocking in,  too many cars, too many roads,  too many taxes, too many problems with the educational system, no empire.  But I was there six years ago  for six weeks and 1 hadn't been  back there from Canada for  almost 60 years.  We had a house in London  1 for the stay and I mainly, during  the day, just walked around. I  would have to say that I found  the people generally, almost  always in fact, cheerier, more  energetic, more outgoing, more  prepared to talk than their oppo-  sites in Toronto.  What they all seemed to me  was pleased, pleased to be in  London. I really can't see 49 per  cent of them wanting to leave.  In fact, my thought about this  poll is: Why don't we have a  poll here to see what percentage  of British emigres would like to  go back'if they could.'  IT'S  COMING...  Wntcb for our Jiicjjn-dollnr  in-stock BLOW OUT SALE  SHOWROOM 851 HWY. 101 GIBSONS PH/FAX 886*3191  ��� ������������������������������<������������  letters  Child tax bill unfair  to working families  Mulroney and his cabinet  colleagues repeatedly promised  that no one would lose under the  new child tax credit bill.  Public requests for copies of  ihe legislation were denied right  up to voting in parliament on the  grounds that no one would lose  and that low-income families  would actually gain under the  new child lax credit scheme. iil  1 Oh, what fools we are lo  believe the lies of politicians  againl Yes, under the new legislation Ihe rich lose nothing nor  do families on welfare.  However, the poor lower and  middle income working families  once again have been shafted.  Under the new tax bill family  incomes over $25,000 with no  allowance for size of family are  not eligible for the working  income supplement and many of  these families, especially the  larger families, will see an  increase in income tax even taking into account the non-taxable  nature of the child tax credit.  High income families will neither suffer nor benefit.  Even more serious is the  effect on seniors who are  attempting lo raise children on  often fixed and meagre pensions  through no fault of their own.  Their pensions or annuities  bought out of their lifelong savings are classed with welfare  payments and are not considered  in calculating child tax credit  supplements.  As a result many seniors  already having a hard time trying to raise grandchildren or  other children on pensions or  annuities hardly sufficient for  two will be hit with a further  decrease in income. Once again  the wealthy senior will not be  affected.  I spoke to the deputy minister  of finance in Ottawa who said  that these sections of the bill  were considered by cabinet and  that the purpose is to encourage  pensioners to seek work to support their children rather than sit  at home and collect family  allowances     and     pension  cheques. I found his attitude  insulting to seniors who have  worked for up to 50 years to  save for their pensions and  through no fault of their own  find themselves having to raise a  second family in their declining  years.  They at least deserve equal  treatment in our tax laws to  young working families. This is  the second tax bill to penalize  seniors unfairly, the first being  the double taxation of social  security payments for wWch  most seniors paid social security  premiums in the past."' :;  There are all sorts of tax  goodies for the wealthy' including dividend exemptions,  increased RRSP allowances and  capital gains exemptions.

I  '   '       .,~  -     -    '     -  george In glbsons  by George Cooper  Fundraising events at Ihe Langdale school are  scheduled for March 6 and April 17.  The first is the great mushroom manure sale,  available by the yard or by the bag. The yard measure is $15 less than the same quantity by bags.  Deliveries from Port Mellon to Woodcreek Park  are included in the price. Order early.  The second is the silent auction, the biggest  event for fundraising in the year. No donation too  small!  On Friday, Feb. 19, Gibsons elementary held its heritage recognition  day to which former principals were  invited and with many pupils and  teachers in costume of yesteryear.  The   former  principals  were  'Unusual in this  day of  enlightenment  and non-violent  far past incredible. Believe mc, so did the teachers  of the time.  No copying machines, everything written out on  the chalkboard the evening before; classrooms of  35 to 40 pupils', no library or gym. But what profuse and rapid changes in recent years.  Among the former principals were Ray Elliott,  now retired from the Burnaby school district and  living once again in Gibsons. Ray was in Gibsons  elementary in the 'old' building, now the district    resources cenlre, in the last half of the  1940s.  Sam Reid, David Rempcl, and Verne  Wishlove renewed acquaintance with a  number of the school staff.  Dave Rempel is now an elementary  principal in Maple Ridge and the direc-  assigned to small groups of pupils to culture that any tor of Friendship Exchange, a group he  mention of the  strap would  come from  youngsters'  respond to their questions about  bygone times in the school.  Some of the school days as principals were for some of us much more  bygone than for others. And those  long bygone days arc in distinct contrast to the present.  Pupils asked about discipline - ie, did you use  the strap? Or, about lessons like spelling and hand  writing; number of pupils in a classroom; and  important matters like the price of chocolate bars.  Unusual in this day of enlightenment and nonviolent culture that any mention of the strap would  come from youngsters since corporal punishment  was banned in the mid-'fSOs. But the stories linger  on, it would seem, like folk tales.  ���   i Some pupils may have found conditions in lhe  founded to provide exchanges of pupils  in brief stays in other countries, Russia  for one. The purpose, to foster friendship, tolerance and understanding.  Sam, like me, is retired and busy;  Verne, director of Ihe district's Continu-  ~~~~~~ ing Education programs.  John Nicholson, Ihe present principal of Gibsons and Keith Brind, the school librarian, certainly deserved the congratulatory applause they  received at the special luncheon, both for their  organizing of the event and for their somewhat  Victorian costumes.  Staff, too, and pupils who were most hospitable  and friendly, and of course, Ihe ladies of the parents advisory; fipgnci,!, who, were the most gracious  ,,;of luncheon hosts.

As a newcomer to the group  this year, I admit that I was  amazed at the number of activities open to the members.  Whatever your interest, there  is someone to lead a gathering  and if you should come up with  a new idea, before long you will  have enough interested members to get it off the ground.

Bridges  Bridges is a physical and  occupational therapy program  for children from birth to 18  yean, sponsored by Community  Services. Therapists work in  collaboration with parents, caregivers and school-based teams  to help create special programs  for each child whose development is cause for concern.  An occupational therapist  helps improve the quality of  movement and posture, and promote independence in activities  of daily living, such as feeding  and dressing.  She helps the child develop  skills for community living and  socialization.

Physiotherapist Ellse Rudland (right) works with  Nathan's parents and one-to-one workers to help develop Inde  pendent motor skills,  improve the quality of posture  and gross motor skills. She is  concerned with preventing or  controlling joint deformities and  promoting safe, independent  mobility. Parents and caregivers  can learn safe lifting, carrying  and transfer techniques.  Bridges is a concept too. The  therapists help bridge the gap  between the isolation a special-  Joel Johnstone photo  needs child might have felt in  the past and a full participation  in community life that the program helps make possible. Individual strategies are planned and  incorporated into the daily routine of the child at home, at play  and at school. These strategies  are integrated with educational  goals for school-aged children.  Elise Rudland is a registered  physiotherapist, Linda Daniels  and Sandy Wrightman are registered occupational therapists, all  with more than 20 years experience in the field. Referrals are  made through school, or in the  case of preschoolers and children not in a School District 46  class, referrals can be made to  Ellse Rudland at 885-6388.  Buying the Building  Bridges is one of the major  reasons why we need the security and space afforded by the  Inlet Avenue building which we  want to buy. The program's present location at Rockwood is not  wheelchair accessible, which  means that if parents need to  bring children into the office,  they must be earned up stairs.  As well, a big part of the program is lending out of special  equipment to parents, daycares  and schools. Storage is a problem under the present circumstances, one which can be  solved with the increased space  our building will offer.  We will be sorry lo lose Continuing Education as a neighbour, but programs like Bridges  will utilize the space to give the  community increased accessibility. As well, the comprehensive  print, video and E-mail library  which Bridges has compiled will  be a useful community resource.  For more information on the  building project, call executive  director Vicki Dobbyn at 885-  5881.  roberts creek  by Beverley Shipley  Roberts Creek residents, in particular  those who live on Highway 101, are concerned about and fighting for control of  development on the highway (through the  OCP process). In a front page article of the  Coast News Feb. 22 issue, the results of a  Sechelt and District Chamber of Commerce  survey questioning over 4,000 non-residents  visiting our area last year, report in part as  follows: over 58 per cent said they didn't  like the poor road conditions, the general  layout of the highway, the poor views and  poor signage, but rated scenery on the highways as good. Does this mean tourists want  it both ways?  Many respondents stated they want more  services available to them such as more  entertainment for adults and children including amusement parks, mini-golf and go-  karts. Does this sound a little like tacky  davis bay news  tourist strips in places such as Chilliwack  and Penticton?  Maskell Road resident Alec Ross is forming a committee to study tourist development on the Coast and if you wish to join or  get information call him at 886-7966.  RCCA Meeting  At last week's RCCA meeting among  items on the agenda was a report from the  LRUP, Emergency Preparedness, and Sunshine Coast Resources Council.  A motion to restrict the shooting of  firearms to within 500 metres of any  dwelling above the powerline in the Creek  was passed. Stats Can released its'population figures for unincorporated areas from its  1991 census, and Roberts Creek now boasts  2,447 residents compared with 1,960 from  the 1986 census.  ICG is to move the propane tanks to Hillside by January 1994. One tank is con  demned and has been sealed.  The regional district is still waiting for  the bike path bylaw from Victoria so that it  can go to referendum.  The section in Roberts Creek would see a  four-foot wide paved strip from the campsite  to the firehall, down Roberts Creek Road  and along Lower Road.  The next RCCA meeting on March 24  will be the annual general meeting, so please  try to attend as elections will be happening.  Ernie Fawcett retirement  Everyone is invited to a retirement party  for Ernie Fawcett, Tuesday, March 2 beginning at 4:30 pm. From 6 to 7 pm will be presentations and photoshoots, followed by  bingo with a'$500 jackpot and partying.  Approximately $23,000 to $45,000 per  year has been donated and continues to be,  by the Roberts Creek Legion through bingo,  to local schools, groups, the hospital, etc.  by Grete Avdeeff  As this is my last column, I  would like to thank everyone  for their encouragement, kind  words and news tips. I would  also like to apologize to all the  hall user groups I haven't had  time to write about.  One of the most important  groups at the hall is the Davis  Bay/Wilson Creek Community  Association (DBWCCA). This  organization is responsible for  the maintenance and running of  the hall and playing field.  I can still recall the first  event we attended after moving  to Davis Bay in December 1985  - it was the annual Christmas  tree burn and potluck. The wonderful neighbours we met that  Sunday evening are one of the  reasons we love living in Davis  Bay.  The DBWCCA has always  had a dedicated executive and  concerned membership who  gladly give of their time. The  annual general meeting and  election of officers is March 9 at  I pm. Please plan to attend -  your support and ideas are  always welcome.  Another community group is  having its inaugural meeting  Monday, March I at 7:30 pm in  the school's community-use  room. If you are concerned with  any of these issues, plan to  attend. On the agenda is future  highway location, revision of  the Sechelt OCP, Chapman  Cieek, the environment and natural resources of the area.  The school reading club had  an excellent February. Steven  Avdeeff received his 100 book  club T-shirt; Silke Poplawski  and Sean McBain, their 50 book  club pin. Congratulations! A  reminder that Mr. M's annual  spring book sale is in the planning. This is a chance to expand  your own library, as well at the  school's.  The parents' meetings with  the principal have been well  attended this year, but there is  always room for more. This is  an excellent opportunity to  openly discuss issues that affect  our children's education. Please  plan on attending the Tuesday,  March 2 meeting at 7 pm in the  library.  Much appreciation and love  to Bill Matheson and Jim Smith  for your hard work and dedication sprucing up our area.  u  ���  We carry a full  range of replacement  globes & glass shades  for lamps, fixtures  *,��*'3����  D  WW  Lamps *> Shades ���> Wall Sconces ��� Track *�� Ceiling lights *> F.ins * Recessed * Out door  Sechelt Lighting  885-9417 �� 5609 Hwy 101, Sechelt  W)t Corporation of $e  Qigtritt of iitcliclt  P.O.

As a non-band member of the same community I  offer besl wishes and a hope for  mutual cooperation for the  future.  Hopefully the OCP committee will work with Chief Feschuk and his council in future  planning. I attended the OCP  meeting for the West Porpoise  Bay area. All the meetings in  the various areas of Sechelt  drew small crowds of interested  citizens. Each area has its special interests but also expressed  the same concerns for setting a  balance between retaining the  present character of the area  and future growth. Don't forget  to submit your completed blue  questionnaire for the OCP as  soon as possible.  The West Sechelt Community Association is holding its  spring meeting on Thursday,  March 4 at 7:30 pm at West  Sechelt elementary. They will  be featuring two guest speakers.  RCMP Constable Kelly Watson  will speak on Ihe Neighbourhood Watch program and on  policing in Sechelt generally.  Dr. Norman Gleadow will make  a presentation on 'a healthy  community.' All are welcome.  Garden dub  The Sechelt garden club welcomes all members and interested persons to its regular monthly meeting at St. Hilda's Church  on Wednesday, March 3 at 7:30  pm. The topic of the meeting is  'hands on'; very appropriate  since gardeners will soon be on  hands and knees in the damp  soil of their gardens. While a  fortunate few have learned to  garden wilh gloves on, most of  us gardeners can be recggtiizelt'r  iHnediately by the ingainesC*  soil and broken fingernails of I  the 'hands on' approach.  Writers forge  Caitlin Hicks - actress, journalist and playwright, addressed  the lasl meeting of the Suncoast  Writers' Forge. The crowd in  the dining room at Rockwood  Centre was mesmerized by the  quality of Hicks' writing and  her vivid presentation. This is  the actress/playwright who performed her own play Six Palm  Trees to delighted audiences  along the Sunshine Coast last  year. Her presentation at the  forge was directed to advising  writers on reading and performing Iheir own work in public.  Her face did not change from  pink to red to ashen-gray while  she read, nor did she visibly  sweat, become short of breath,  or shake. I was impressed. Even  the faint prospect of my reading  aloud makes my stomach lurch  unpleasantly.  The next meeting of the  Writers' Forge is on Wednesday, March 10 at 7:30 pm at  Rockwood Centre. The judges  are currently evaluating the  contest entries from the Forge's  annual writing contest and the  winners will be announced at  the March meeting.  FWA  The Festival of the Written  Arts recently announced some  of the guests who will speak at  the I lth annual festival this  summer. Mordecai Richler, celebrated Canadian novelist headlines the roster. Other writers  include Guy Vanderhaeghe,  winner of the Governor-General's Award and Doris Anderson, former editor of ChsHelaine  magazine and Feminist.  There are many other well-  known writers attending the festival. Their interests range from  cooking to the economy to  hockey to the environment,  something for everyone. This  yeaf I recommend that you  order'your tickets in lots of  time.  I left it to the final moment  last year and missed out on  most of the speakers I wanted to  hear.  Festival speakers always  offer us a wide range of views  on Canadian affairs and on our  lives ts Canadians. Some comedian claims he "can't get no  respect;" the festival gives  Sechelt respect across Canada.

Pioneer Passes  A memorial service was held  last Saturday at St. John's United Church in Davis Bay for Eva  Lyons who passed peacefully  away at St. Mary's Hospital on  Feb. 21.  Eva was born in Manitoba in  the year 1900. Despite her  years, her mind remained sharp  right up to the end. Several  chapters could be written about  the impact this good lady had on  the area in which she decided to  call home since as far back as  1938, making her and her family true pioneers of Halfmoon  Bay.  Eva resided in the same  home on Redrooffs Road where  she-jaisad her family, of whom  survivors are one daughter Mar  ilynn, 10 grandchildren, 17  great-grandchildren and one  great-great-grandchild.  From 1951 to 1962 Eva ran a  clothing store known as The  Toggery in Sechelt. Lyons Cove  was officially named after the  Lyons family some years ago,  and, throughout the years she  became well known as the local  fortune teller.  It was for the benefit of several organizations that Eva  would accept donations for  reading tea cups, among which  were OES Chapter 65, Halfmoon Bay Hospital Auxiliary of  which she had been a member  since the Halfmoon Bay group  was established, the Welcome  Beach Community AttfocijlUon,  to name buntfew.���'���* ��� ���.**  rxaws.  >  ��� Classical Ballet  ��� Mime & Drama  ��� Performance Class  ���}azz  ��� Students accepted from 3 years to adult  ��� Serious dancers enter for  'RJA.'D. examinations  ��� Student recently accepted to tht  %pyal Winnipeg 'Balkt Summer School  lOHdbootni on Ml lees.  ���***"��� ���^mv���m_mrn^*-m ���*���*���*�� a��*-aa*a*a*p Mit********'  ��� Qualified, ejrperknced,  internationally trained teachers  ��� Limited class numbers for  personalized instruction  ��� "Enjoyable classes with  professional standards  �� Pleasant, fully equipped dance studio  zuith mirrors and banes  THE COAST ACADEMY OF DANCE & FINE ART?  5645 Wharl Ave. 2nd lloor.

I spent last  weekend (Feb. 19-21) at a conference in Kelowna. One of our  group from the Disabled  Women's Network, lives in  Nelson out in the boondocks  where one has to four-wheel it  in and then hike a bit to the  house. I've never been to her  house for obvious reasons. She  is a young member of our  group who has uncontrollable  seizures - not often, but enough  to classify her as disabled. She  really has to gather up her  courage to leave her home.  I arrived in Kelowna on Friday the 19th at around 10:30  am and checked with the airlines and learned that Castlegar  airport was closed. Kyla has to  gel from Nelson, to Castlegar  by bus, Castlegar to Vancouver  by plane and then takes a plane  from Vancouver to Kelowna.  My heart sunk at the news that  the Castlegar airport was down.  After dinner that evening I  was going by the desk to gel to  the elevator (at Ihe hotel) and  who walked in the door looking  like a snow bunny, bul Kyla.  Her journey had started from  6:30 am when she left her home  and this was 6:45 pm. I had a  hundred questions for her and  one was about food, as her diet  is very strict. She had packed  food and was travelling with a  shoulder pack.  She had hitch-hiked, taken  several buses and ended up in  Penticton where the airlines had  paid for cab fare from Penticton  to Kelowna. By the time she  had arrived in Kelowna, it was  snowing heavily. By Sunday,  Feb. 21, all airports were open  and her trip back to Nelson was  uneventful.  Texas Line Dancing is meeting on Monday from 11:30 am  to 12:30 pm. Phone Gweneth at  the centre 885-3513 to learn all  the details.

The boats are more  powerful now.  "In Ihe winter time when the  towing was slow I used lo work  in various shipyards so I got to  pick up a fair amount of information," he says. He also  learned a few tips from his  uncle, (also Jack), a shipwright  in Pender Harbour.  "He taught me how to caulk  the decks," says Cumming. "My  way wasn't Ihe right way."  Today, with projects like Ihe  Nanaimo Tillicum rebuild, "I  gel (the plans) out of my head  then I scale them with a slide  rule. We had to have a plan like  that so we knew where to start,"  he says. "It wasn't hard on this  boat. We just threw everything  away."  One especially tricky part  was fitting the new planks to the  bottom of the boat on ways up  in Egmont. "They have lo fit  sort of perfect or il doesn't float  very well," says Cumming.  There's also the technique of  culling limbers to make sure the  lines of the boat are right:  "Some are flat and some have  got a real hollow to them," he  says. "I'd say this boat has real  classic lines."  Two old features lhe boat  retains are the two posts at the  back of the cabin. "If one of  those other boats break down  this boat can go and do the job,"  says Cumming.  Says Thompson, "Tugboat  men, they don't like Tupper-  ware."  on the arts beat  Easy come.

RECYCLE THIS NEWSPAPER  Pender Harbour put their best forward, leading 45-41 going into  the final few seconds, but Pemberton stole the game 45-46, with  final second two-point and three-point baskets. A classic in this  year's Cougar Classic where an undefeated Elphinstone beat the  determined Pemberton team In final play.        Joel Johnstone pholo  Elphie loses to arch rival  On Feb. 18 the Elphinstone grade 8 boys basketball team hit the  road for a game against their arch rivals from Chatelech. It was a  heart-stopping game from the first jump ball.  It was a see-saw game where each team took a small lead. Unfortunately for Elphinstone, the Chatelech lead was too big to conquer  (34-20). A valiant effort by the Elphinstone boys in the last quarter  brought their team within eight points but that was all they could  muster with a final score of 40 to 32 in favour of Chatelech,  Chatelech was successful on an excellent team effort lead by  Trevor Haynes with 10 points and Tyler Mercer with eight points.  Elphinstone had a burst of offence from Mike Sopow with a team-  leading 14 points. Both teams look forward to a rematch in the near  future.

SN-M10(Ran.)    STIHL  Chainsaws & Trimmers  5 YEARS AGO  "The Social Credit policy on  highway construction proves  their inability to manage the  public money effectively."  Those were the opening  remarks made by BC Liberal  leader Gordon Wilson, as he  addressed community members  at a question and answer session  following a public meeting in  Sechelt this week.  The Dombrowski residence  on Redrooffs Road was demolished by fire on Sunday at 10  am when the occupant was at  church. Firemen arrived  promptly but were not able to  save the structure.  10 YEARS AGO  The aquaculture conference  held last week at the regional  board offices in Sechelt reflected the growing interest in the  aquaculture business, as 14 oyster farmers, 12 salmon farmers  and two commercial fishermen  from the Coast and Vancouver  Island discussed progress in  eir operations and problems  facing the young industry.  15 YE/VRS AGO  Reported sightings of UFOs  have been identified as ISOs.  The Identified Standing  Objects, sighted around the  Granthams area, first report as  UFOs are apparently the headlights of standing train engines  on the BC Railway track to  Squamish.  25 YEARS AGO  Too many unlicenced dogs  are roaming Gibsons streets  menacing people and small  dogs, some of which have been  attacked and killed.  30 YEARS AGO  Chief Charles Craigan was  re-elected chief of the Sechelt  Band and a fourth member was  added to the councillors because  of a population increase.  35 YEARS AGO  Mr. Henry Smood, building  contractor from Port Alberni  and owner of the sleek $15,000  Navion aircraft standing mud-  splattered but otherwise undamaged on the tiny emergency  airstrip at Wilson Creek, was  thankful to have found a haven  in time of trouble and praised  the municipalities for their foresight in developing a much-  needed airfield in this location.  45 YEARS AGO  The modern logger is now  equipped with powersaws and  steel helmets, a considerable  improvement over the old  spring board, axe and crosscut  saw equipment.  _**  SPCA NEWS:  This friendly little fellow, a seven-month-old neutered male, Is  just waiting for a caring owner to come and claim him.

The REDO will serve the  communities of the Howe  Sound area, Squamish, Whistler  and Pemberton as well as Gibsons and Sechelt by working  wilh them on various initiatives  ranging from providing support  for small business to assisting  aboriginal communities.  "Economic renewal must be  New office to open in Squamish  generated in the regions - not  from Victoria,"Zirnhelt said.  "The government recognizes  that individual communities  have needs vastly different from  one another."  He emphasized that one of  the roles of the REDO is to  coordinate and enhance the  availability of government programs and services.  The REDO will work in partnership wilh an established network of local economic development partners currently active  in the area.  Zirnhelt said his ministry had  been restructured to provide  greater emphasis on regional  and community economic development. Restructuring is part of  a move towards careful, long-  range planning, and away from  the ad hoc approach which often  occurred in the past.  Squamish was chosen as the  REDO location because of its  central location and ability to  provide service to the  Squamish/Pemberton corridor.  Zirnhelt emphasized that one  of the roles of the REDOs is to  coordinate and enhance the  availability of government pro  grams and services. The REDOs  will work in partnership with an  established network of local  economic development partners  currently active in the region.  The decision to base the  REDOs in the selected communities followed consultation with  local officials, economic development commissions, chambers  of commerce, the Union of  British Columbia Municipalities  and many other community and  regional representatives.  "The placement of regional  economic development offices  had been a difficult balancing  act lo ensure Ihe besl delivery of  services to the greatest number  of people al Ihe lowest possible  cost," Zirnhelt said.  Coast churches to open doors for World Day of Prayer  The women of Guatemala have written  Ihis year's service for the World Day of  Prayer. Their story is one of repression and  despair.  This year the international community has  recognized their plight and awarded the  Nobel Peace Prize to a woman from  Guatemala - Rigoberta Menchu Turn.  The Nobel Prize recognizes the outstanding courage and tenacity of both Rigoberta  Menchu Turn and her people to resist the  evils of repression.  Within the service this year six women,  identified only by their first names so as to  protect their identity, speak to us of the eight  million inhabitants of their country. Between  four and six million Guatemalans are descendants of the Maya.  Despite the repression the Mayan people  of Guatemala have managed to hold on to  their communal way of life. They slill practice many of their customs and traditions that  are an example of how to live in cooperation  not competition with the earth.  Come and be a part of this year's service  at 1:30 pm, Friday, March 5 at the Church of  St. Aidan and St. Bartholomew, corner of  Highway 101 and North Road.  A time of fellowship and refreshments  will follow.  Coast News Classifieds  37. Child Cairo  Nanny with 6 yrs. experience available for live-in child or elderly care.
