 Legislative Library  Parliament Buildings  Victoria, B.C. V8V 1X4  88.8  The Sunshine  D  Published on the Sunshine Coast        25' per copy on news stands     May 16,1988 Volume 42        Issue 20  In Sechelt  MLA meets  constituents  Mother's Day in Sechelt took on special significance this year as  over eighty people gathered to march through the downtown area,  carrying doves and singing peace songs. The event was organized  Sun shines on  hy the Sunshine Coast Peace Committee, and ended at the Arts  Centre where participants were treated to a performance by 'The  Raging Grannies'. ,       ���Vern Kllloii plioio  Mother's Day March for Peace  MLA Harold Long met with  constituents on Friday, May 6,  at an open house at the Sunshine Coast Regional District  office in Sechelt. Turnout was  small, due in part to a scheduling mix-up, but most of those in  attendance responded  favourably to Long and his performance thus far as the area's  MLA.  Several residents offered effusive praise of both Long and  Premier Vander Zalm, and  SCRD Chairman Peggy Connor presented Long with a lapel  pin in appreciation of his work,  particularly his efforts to secure  the 10:30 am ferry sailing from  Horseshoe Bay to Langdale.  There were a few, however,  who took advantage of the opportunity to broach some nagging issues. Mrs. Ruth Biggers of  Sechelt expressed her fears that  Trail Bay will 'go industrial',  referring to the Sechelt Indian  Band's decision to build a  gravel loading facility in the  area.  "Well, they're still talking  canal," he said. "They're still  studying the issue."  "They've been studying it  since 1912 when my uncle lived  here," she replied.  In a similar vein, the MLA  chose to remain at arm's length  from the issue of Ihe possible  amalgamation of the forest  district of Sechelt and Powell  River, and concomitant  establishment of a head office  in ihe larger cenlre.  "What should be done is  whatever is most efficient,  whatever will best serve the  public," said Long. Both  Sechelt and Powell River fall  within Long's riding.  Some time was spent discussing the Gibsons bypass issue.  Long was sympathetic to the  concern of Gibsons residents:  "As it stands now, you can't bring a scmi-t^ailer through Gibsons without breaking the law,"  he said, implying that  negotiating the lower Gibsons  hairpin turn necessitates swinging a truck's cab around over  the yellow line and into the oncoming lane of traffic.  But he promised no immediate solution. "We'll try lo  push on it," he said, "but it's  still a year or two down the  road." Long rejected suggestions that small projects be  undertaken to assuage the problem. "If anything small is  done, we won't get the big  one," he said. "Let's do  anything - let's make it worse...  but let's not make it a little bet-  Over 80 people carried doves  and sang peace songs through  Sechelt to mark Mother's Day  this year. The idea for Mother's  Day originated in the late 1800's  when Julia Ward Howe called  for women to unite and press  for governments to solve international questions through  peaceful means rather than  through war.  The walk, sponsored by the  Sunshine Coast Peace Committee, ended at the Arts Centre,  with performances by local and  out-of-town artists. Paul  Freynet from Vancouver and  Ann Moul from Roberts Creek  sang some original peace songs  inspired by the beauty of the  Coast. Iris Griffith of Egmont  read a sample of her poetry  'Thriller'. The crowd also enjoyed a singing performance by  a Victoria group, 'The Raging  Grannies'. Their satirical songs  dealing with nuclear ships in  Victoria harbours, cruise missile  testing and the uranium mining  questions   brought   light   and  laughter to very serious issues  faced by mothers today.  Hilda Marczak, one of the  grannies, commented, "I had  retired and raised three wonder*  ful children and felt all my  responsibilities had ended but  there was this gnawing feeling  inside of me. It was the nuclear  threat and once I started being  active in these issues I felt more  hopeful."  Their message is spreading as  the women have appeared on  CBC, Peter Gzowski, and have  performed at peace and development conferences around the  province. New granny groups  are forming because it is an effective way to reach people and  Ihere are lots of grannies who  hope their grandchildren will be  able to live long, productive  lives.  Peace Committee organizer  Denise Lagasse 'felt the walk  was very beautifuul to watch  with the doves high in the air  against the mountains and is  r  For Coast Libraries  Agreement reached to seek funding  At long last, the library funding issue may finally be settled.  Sechelt Council, Gibsons Council, and the Sunshine Coast  Regional District (SCRD) have  all approved a library function,  which would bring more provincial money into Sunshine  Coast libraries.  "We have a consensus, approval in principal, and a letter  dated May 2 from the premier,"  said SCRD Director Gordon  Wilson, at the group's board  meeting Thursday.  Regional District Administrator Larry Jardine will  now draft a formal request to  the Ministry of Municipal Affairs for a function under the  Regional District.  Director Bob Wilson felt that  since the three districts have  come to an agreement, the  worst part of the storm has  passed.  "We don't have to rush it  now," he said. "We would be  happier to proceed at a slow  pace, and do it right."  But there appears to be no  rest for the weary. Chairman  Peggy Connor pointed out that  the matter would have to be attended to immediately, since  there are still several steps the  function must undergo before it  is formally established.  The request for a new function under the Regional District  must be sent to Victoria, and  then a referendum will be held  Oil leak continues  to establish a tax base for the  library funding. Providing the  function passes referendum, a  commission will be appointed,  and funds will be raised through  taxation across the entire  Regional District, and apportioned by the commission to the  boards of various libraries.  "We were hoping for a  referendum by June," said  Connor.  Director Jim Gurney added  that, for tax purposes, "Il is imperative that we have the  referendum before September."  Fatal accident  X  At approximately 1 am on the morning of May 14, IN81  single Mr accident occurred at the Sunshine Coast Highway  and Lower Road near Gibsons, B.C.  The accident is still under investigation however it did  claim the life of Laura Elise Henderson (Born March 21,  1971) of Gibsons.  Further details to be released pending the conclusion of  the investigation into these matters.  Tourism Weak  May 16 to May 22 is National Tourism Week and oo  Monday, May 16, 12 noon to 2 pm there will be an Open  House at the Sechelt Travel-Info Centre (across from the  elementary school), with free balloons for the kids and  flowers for the ladies.  The public is invited to come and view Rockwood Lodge  and take a walk through the beautiful gardens.  No rain, please  Sea Cavalcade is taking the lead from the Bphi Gradi, we  are having a 'dry parade'. People all over the coast put fantastic effort into floats and costumes for this yearly event and  we hate to see it ruined by water balloons and hose wars. The  place for water fun is at Armours Beach.  We hope to have cooperation from all, to make this year's  Cavalcade Parade fun, safe and dry.  Watch the paper for your parade entry forms. Any enquiries call Paddy at 886-3095 or 886-2323.  As oil continues to leak out  of the rusting hulk of the Commodore Straits at the bottom of  Welcome Passage, federal officials are scrambling to find out  how much of the diescl/bunker  fuel is left. In the last two  weeks, Colin Hendry, the Coast  Guard's Regional Environmental Marine Officer, and the Environmental Protection  Agency's Fred Beech have  visited South Thormanby  Island, taken videos of the  spreading problems, and made  some observations of the situation.  Using ballpark figures, Hendry told the Coast News that the  oil appeared to be leaking at a  rate of roughly 90 to 140 litres  per day. The Commodore  Straits, which sank in December, 1955, was known to have a  fuel capacity of 130 tons, and  she was fully loaded and  heading out for a three week  trip when she went down not far  from Francis Rock.  Patrick Lewis, a property  owner in the area, told the  Coast News that he thinks the  leak is much worse than Hendry's conservative estimate. He  believes that there are between  270 and 405 litres per day pouring out of the wreck, and by his  calculations, that could mean  48,000 litres of the fuel will  cover the area by September.  The problem, according to  Colin Hendry, is that the tanks  are very fragile and could easily  be ruptured by attempts to raise  them.  While Hendry and Beech  have Iheir departments working  on a solution to the problem,  MP Ray Skelly raised the issue  with Minister of Transport  Benoit Bouchard in the House  of Commons in Ottawa today,  and chairman of the Sunshine  Coast Emergency Preparedness  Program, Art McPhee, has lei  the Coast Guard know that his  group is very concerned about  the situation.  Gibsons reservoir  is full of water  The new Gibsons water reservoir on School Road received  finishing touches Friday and is  now full of water.  Prior to filling it, contractors  along with municipal workers  swept it out, washed it down,  and gave it a special sanitizing  treatment. Then the signal was  given, the valve opened, and  water rushed in. After a final  check to see that all was func  tioning well, Public Works  Superintendent Skip Reeves was  the last to clamber out of the  200,000 gallon capacity concrete  cavern.  Municipal personnel say the  first load of water containing  sanitizing chemicals will be  dumped through the storm  sewers in a week or two and  then the reservoir will be completely functional.  m  The finishing touches were pul on lo Ihe new Gibsons reservoir on School Road lasl week. Acoustics  were such lhat workmen had to whisper so as not to be drowned out by Iheir own echos. ���Ken Collins phoio  Serving the Sunshine Coast sinc;e 1945 Coast News, May 16,1988  Comment  f     V  A Charade  When the Foreshore Advisory Commiltee of ihe Sunshine Coasl Regional Dislrict was originally conceived to  investigate the use of the waters surrounding ihis area and  address ihe concerns of local residents, ihere was a  desperate need lor some official governmenl body lo intervene in the chaos which surrounded ihe sudden in-  surgence of ihe aquaculture industry.  When Chairman Gordon Wilson suggested lhal the  Committee become a task force in order to gain more  credibility, and therefore more clout, with provincial  ministries, il made some political kind of sense. But the actuality is thai instead of endowing that group wilh more  influence where il counts, the Task Force has been reduced  10 a tokenistic gathering of bureaucratic representatives  once a month.  No local issues are addressed. Even the mosl blatant  violations of administrative procedures are referred back  to olher bodies who are instructed to follow traditional appeal routes ihrough the ministries which all know lead to  nowhere.  One of the most crucial and influential members of the  Task Force. Hank Boas of ihe Ministry of Forests and  Lands, made his position blatantly clear at last week's  meeling when questioned aboul the approval of  aquacullure tenure al Carlson Poinl in the Sechell Inlet.  Wilhoul so much as an embarrassed glance ai local  represenlalives, Boas explained lhal no one oilier lhan the  Regional Dislricl had objected to the lease when il was  advertised in the Gazette and the Province.  In thai one brief comment he summarized Ihe altitude  which provincial representatives on ihe Task Force have  toward local concerns. Firsl, the recommendation from  the regional disirici was considered too obviously unimportant to even consider. Secondly, major decisions are  made in Vancouver or Victoria where the big boys play,  and if you don't gel your information Irom the Province  or the Gazelle your objections aren't worth hearing.  This will nol be the lirsl or the lasl lime that experienced  bureaucrats have thwarted the intentions of some well-  meaning politician. All that is left to be seen is how long  this charade will continue.  5 YEARS AGO  The oldest member ol Ihe Sechelt Indian Band.  Cecilia August, was called upon by Chief Stanley Earle  Joe to cut the ribbon to mark the opening of Ihe new  Band Hall. The opening ceremony was held on the Indian lands on May 15, and was marked by appropriate  speeches and a dinner hosted by the band.  Healed debate arose at the meeting of the Sunshine  Coast Regional Dislrict Board last Thursday, over an application by Mrs. Consuelo Martinez to open a  neighbourhood pub in Davis Bay. The proposed pub is  nol permissable under current zoning in that area.  10 YEARS AGO  The Native Environment Studies Programme planned  jointly by the school board of School Dislrict No. 46 and  the Sechelt Indian Band is nearing readiness. A join!  committee of trustees and band councillors is presently  meeting to finalize the last cost aspects of the programme.  15 YEARS AGO  Meetings to form a society to establish a curling rink  in Gibsons have reached the point where applications  for membership are being sent out.  For the third lime in Iheir lour year history, the tiny  drama club Driftwood Players, has been invited to the  B.C. drama finals in Prince George.  20 YEARS AGO  Ceremonies involving inauguration of M.V, Sunshine  Coast Queen between Langdale and Horseshoe Bay  take place Thursday starting from Langdale terminal at  1 pm.  25 YEARS AGO  Sechelt's May Day parade Monday will feature three  bands. Lonsdale Sea Cadets from North Vancouver, a  bugle band from the Sechelt  Indian Band and the  Elphinstone Secondary School band.  30 YEARS AGO  Elphinstone Co-op store on Marine Drive was robbed  during last weekend of more than $1,000 when the safe  in the back office was smashed open.  Gross total Sechell school dislrict budget will be  $620,099 lor 1958 of which Gibsons and Sechelt will provide $30,360  35 YEARS AGO  Presence ol mind and quick aclion on Ihe part ol  teenagers David Parish and Michael Whilaker of  Sechelt saved 10 year old Irvine Garry from anything  more serious than a thorough wetting and a rusty bike  when the boy was tossed from his bike while riding on  the Sechelt wharf.  40 YEARS AGO  Sechelt dog tag licences are now overdue. Owners ol  pets are reminded that this licence should be purchased al once as unlicenced dogs may be disposed ot and  the owners are liable to a fine up to $25.

Q:    WHAT IS SM/VLL, ROUND AND BLACK  AND HAS MORE CHARISMA THAN JOHN  TURNER, ROBERT BOURASSA AND  GARY FILMON COMBINED?  A:  M��lThe victims are  easiest to blame  One returns from a brief  hiatus in the interior of the province lo find with some surprise  lhal whal seemed relatively  mild-mannered musings on the  plight of hungry children in  Vancouver has elicited two  strongly worded atlacks.  David Loewen of Sechelt  asserts thai we don't have the  'guts' to blame the parents of  hungry children and Ihis week a  James C. Dougan of Lasqueti  Island declares his love for  Premier Vander Zalm on this  issue.  Well, well, it lakes all sorts to  make a world and certainly the  smugly insensitive, self-  congratulatory views of the type  expressed by Loewen and  Dougan have been heard before  in the world's debates. I believe  thai Marie Antoinette was a  leading proponent of the view  of poverty thai our two hardbitten individualists expound.  To Mr. Loewen let me say  that I have been in the labour  force for well over ihirty years,  that I have three grown children  who did not and who do not  suffer from malnutrition; to  Mr. Dougan let me say that  such fervent expressions of support from an island which  heretofore has been regarded as  ihe last stronghold of ihe peace  and flowers residue should certainly warm ihe cockles of our  premier's hearl.  Bul why does il lake more  guis lo attack the impoverished  among us than to criiicise the  government which rules us, Mr.  Loewen? Why must you assume  thai a differing opinion lhan  yours must be lacking in intestinal fortitude?  I came lo Canada in the mid  fifties and was working within  eight days. There were no food  banks then, no reports of  hungry children in the schools.  Is Ihis because parenls have  losl iheir parental instinct in the  lasl thirty-odd years, or is it  because there have been external changes in their circumstances which are beyond  their control?  Mr. Dougan has never been  withoul a day's work in his life.  Obviously, he is not old en6ugh  to remember the Great Depression when millions of Canadians couldn't find work  though they criss-crossed the  continent looking for it. Or  were ihose unemployed millions  simply 'irresponsible donkeys',  too, Mr. Dougan?  Both correspondents, in  short, prefer lo lay blame on the  victims when sociely goes  Ihrough its periodic wrenching  adjustments.  It is admirable to be a responsible father and admirable to be  consistently successfully  employed. It is despicable and  silly io suggesi thai all who are  nol blessed are cheats and  donkeys.  Once again, why is so much  fuss made aboul lhat fact that  there are a few welfare cheats  and so little about giant cor  porations which pay no taxes;  why is government bungling  and mis-spending on a giant  scale accepted without comment  when funds io help Ihe unfortunate are subject to such  scrutiny and venomous attack?  I suggest thai such as Mr.  Loewen and Mr. Dougan focus  their contempt and attack on  ihe unfortunate because it  enables them to preen in self-  admiration before the mirrors  of their minds.  II is difficult indeed to contemplate the complex working  and delicate balances which  enables society to take care of  its members - the one and the  only function of social groupings, lei us remember.  Much easier is ii to attack Ihe  downtrodden, Mr. Loewen, or  lo label them wilh derogatory  names, Mr. Dougan.  While Loewen and Dougan  strut iheir manly stuff and  assert thai those who do not  work should starve, do ihey nol  beg the question as lo whal is lo  be done for the innocent young?  Should children be allowed lo  starve so thai we might appropriately punish their  parenls?  Should the misfortune of accident or illness ever befall  Messrs. Dougan and Loewen,  or the poverty which frequently  attends such natural  phenomenon, may they find  more compassion and  understanding than they at presenl seem able lo express.  Holy Thursday  Is this a holy thing to see _______t________  In a rich and fruitful land,  Hahes reduc 'd to misery.  Fed with cold and usurous hand?  Is That trembling cry a song  (an it he a song of joy?  Ami so many children poor?  It is a hind of poverty!  And their sun does never shine.  And their fields are bleak and hare.  And their ways are fill'd with thorns:  It Is eternal winter there.  lor where'er the sun does shine.  And where'er the ruin does fall,  llahe can never hunger there.  Xor poverty the mind appall.  William Blake  Foreign landscapes  Codfish and Cappuccino  by Howard While  Someone told me four-fifths  of the people in Florence at any  given time are tourists, but if  that is true, ihey are largely  Italian tourists. At every  museum and public garden I  went to in Italy I found the  Italians ihemselves lo be the  mosl numerous admirers. They  lounge on the statues as ihey eat  lunch and make use of the  Boboli Gardens to read their  paperbacks, taking advantage  of the magnificence the Medici  created all those centuries ago  for their private glory.  It may be thai there is no connection between the glorious  cultural artifacts the Italians  have so carefully preserved  from their past, the high place  given education of the young,  and the stylish, 98 per cent  literate, confident society of  northern Italy today. But I saw  it as all one rich mixture. Like a  lot of Canadians, I've always  regarded modern Italy as a bit  of a joke with its 48 governments in 45 years, and not only  because of the obvious fact they  get so much more out of life.  Italy today has it both ways.  Their industry is booming.  Their currency is soaring against  ours. Their labour output is  higher by 20 percent. Their life  expectancy is higher than ours,  their birth rate lower by 30 percent (so much for the Pope).  And they've got Tomaso Bam-  ba. If that is what minority  government can do, bring on  the election.  When I transferred to the  Vancouver bound plane in Amsterdam, I was handed a local  paper, the first I'd seen in over a.  week. I avoided looking at it until we were over Iceland. I knew  what I would find and I wasn't  ready to kill the warm Italian  glow that still lingered. Finally 1  got up my nerve and opened it  up, not an easy thing to do in  the crowded sub-economy section at the back of a DC-10.  I turned to the sports first.  All the underdogs were winning  the playoffs. Good. Turning to  cultural news next, a study had  revealed B.C. support for the  arts to be lower than in any province except Nova Scotia. Newfoundland was well up the list.  On the education front, several  policy makers in Victoria were  voicing the opinion that, after  starving the public schools and  universities for ten years, the  best way to deal with our plunging high school graduation rate  was not to make the examinations easier. But the from page  was all about Vander Zalm cutting off welfare for single  mothers.  I had to laugh, because the  British paper I'd been reading in  the airport waiting room had an  almost identical headline,  detailing the bitter controversy  caused in Britain by Margaret  Thatcher's harsh welfare cuts  which were introduced several  weeks earlier. I wondered, is it  possible Thatcher's imitators  follow her example that closely?  Some of the reasons Vander  Zalm and his ministers were offering seemed to be word-for-  word quotes from Thatcher's  ministers. It was also surprising  to find that the supposed  economic upturn in the UK,  which has now become such an  article of faith among those  who advocate the hard That-  cherite road as the only responsible political solution of the  80's, was being treated as a  much less certain thing at home  in the British press than in the  foreign press.  'But what nobody seems  ready to acknowledge is the  Italian example, where much  clearer economic success has  been achieved under the democratic socialist leadership of Bet-  tino Craxi, among others, many  others in the left dominated  Italian parliament. It seems im  portant to know that Italy  recently passed Britain in total  GNP to become the fifth mosi  industria'!zed nation in the  world, but how often do we  hear it?  For the first time in my life I  felt really depressed about my  home province and its people.  When would they ever stop  worshipping the venal and meafc  in men like Vander Zalm anejr  find some richer, maturer vision  of whal the west could be? Il  was never clearer to me that ig  order to have a lively economy?  you must first have a lively, ire*  formed people motivated by a  positive vision of life that is  worth pulling together for. Ih  modern Italy, they have it, here  we seem to have lost it.  But my sour mood didn't last  long after reaching the ferry it  Horseshoe Bay. It was a lovely  spring day and mountains  across Howe Sound looked"  stunning in their crisp blue and  while. The sky seemed so big  and somehow bright compared  to Europe. Hope returned, but  it was tempered with sadness.  We spend our lives in one of the  most favoured settings on the  globe, just like they always say.  But our public life is bleaker  than the weather in New*  foundland. We should be getting so much more out of it. Coast News, May 16,1988  Letters to the Editor  Between materialism and the spirit  Editor:  Maryanne West has done the  community a service by reminding us all of what Christ had to  say about our duty to our  neighbour. I am reminded of a  quote from G.K. Chesterton.  "Christianity has not been tried  and found wanting. It has been  found difficult and not tried."  Regardless of what an individual may say she or he  believes, about either the  teachings of a religious leader or  the supposed super-natural occurences connected with his life,  the true test of your spirituality  is not whal you profess to believe in (be il astrology or the  virgin birth) but how you live  your life.  If someone claims to be a  Christian and then proceeds lo  rip off their friends, cheat their  employer, exploit their employ  ees or oppress their spouse, then  their claim becomes meaningless.  Unfortunately, some of the  greatest criminals in the western  world right now are claiming to  be Christians and through this  claim, they gain credibility,  while others, with lives unselfish  and devoted to justice, are reviled as atheists or humanists.  It is hard to find spiritual  alternatives. I used to have great  hopes for so called 'new age'  spirituality because it was open  to the idea that God might have  a female face as well as a male  one. But now I see the new age  degenerating into the same  defence of greed and materialism lhat fundamentalist  Christianity condones. With all  their talk about prosperity and  abundance and how these things  will come to you if you have the  right attitude, the implication is  that, if you are poor, you must  be spiritually deficient. I see little difference between this and  the evangelist preacher ranting  about how God wants you to  have a Cadillac.  None of the great religions  have advocated materialistic  values. Christ's ministry was to  the poor. The Buddha walked  away from his riches. If there is  a satan then it is his voice we  hear claiming that greed is com-  patable with spiritual growth.  I see a definite need for a concept of spirituality that emphasizes following one's conscience rather than blindly accepting a creed.  For some 10 or 15 years I  have been a Unitarian. The  Unitarian church began in  eastern Europe during the reformation. It was an off-shoot of  Protestantism which, while rejecting the doctrine of the trinity  and the divinity of Christ, maintained respect for Christ as a  great teacher.  Unitarians have always been  involved in social action and  humanitarian concerns. They  operate the food bank for single  mothers at their Vancouver  church. They are not anti-  intellectual. One is not asked to  slop thinking in order to  belong.  I am the only Unitarian I  know about on the sunshine  coasl. I would like to find out if  there are more, or talk to people  who are interested in learning  about unitarianism. Perhaps we  could start a fellowship. I can  be reached at 886-7988.

OK, we put in  a town gas pump where you can  gas up your car for free, and we  put everybody on their honour  to only do it if they really need  it. We also put in a town freezer  full of steaks and roasts and  once again you take as much as  you want, providing your need  is real.  This is the tragic flaw in the  welfare scheme. Once you or I  can overcome the 'guilty' feelings, hell, our need is indeed  real, and today's partial needs  become tomorrow's total needs.  I don't know why we can't  see that this whole welfare  scenario is destroying us. It is  not a blessing, it is a curse. Let  each person experience a Mount  Everest. It makes us far better  people. You and I are forced to  contribute to 'compulsory  charity'. It is wrong. Let's put  charity back in Ihe hands of the  churches. If I wish to contribute  to some 'down and outer', fine.  But you shouldn't have to. It  should be your choice to spend  or not to spend.  Three   cheers   for   premier  Vander Zalm. I love him. His  ideas are 100 percent correct.  We've made it too damned convenient for people who wish to  run their lives in a reckless  way. We don't need a 'Bill of  Rights'.  What we need is a 'Bill of  Responsibilities', because our  society is full of donkeys that  are totally irresponsible.  The newspapers are full of  jobs, good jobs. I've never been  out of work a day in my life.  We've got to get back to the old  concept of 'no worky - no eaty'.  No courtesy from ferry traffic  Editor:  I reside in the Langdale area  and work in Gibsons. If I time it  right I usually miss the ferry  traffic and I'm at my work site  in approximately II minutes.  Unfortunately from time to  time I find myself involved in  ferry traffic.  Occasionally, you'll find a  truck or two pulled over in the  right lane of the ferry terminal  who will wait for all traffic to  disburse, but this courtesy is  seldom exercised.  Most local truckers will use  the lower route (Port Mellon  Hwy.) mainly because the corner by Molly's Reach is somewhat easier to maneuver, a lot  safer and the hill leading from  the corner has a long passing  lane.  I personally think that the  blind corner on Hwy. 101 is extremely unsafe when these  trucks cross over into the oncoming lane to turn.  The frustration of it all for  residents and other ferry  vehicles is following a truck  crawling up the highway impeding the entire traffic flow.  A small percentage of truckers using this route are new to  the area and of course don't  know the difference between  routes.  I would like to suggest that  the lower route (Port Mellon  Hwy.) be strictly used as a truck  route and enforced! This will  also eliminate the frustrations  Cancer funding  Editor:  Once again, just when the  Canadian Cancer Society has  mobilized its 7,000 volunteers in  British Columbia and the  Yukon, for its Annual April  Campaign, a Montreal-based  organization, the Cancer  Research Sociely Inc., has mailed a solicitation letter to  residents of this province.

Floodproofing regulations  look up a significant amount of  Gibsons Planning Committee  meeling last Tuesday.  One of the factors that has  slowed the municipality in implementing a floodplan bylaw  has been the frequent changing  of wording in their recommended bylaw. In fact, the province  has [he power to force a  municipality to adopt what they  see as necessary if they choose.  "Isn't the province sidestepping ils responsibility?" asked  Municipal Planner Rob  Buchan.  "Not at all," replied Mike  Currie, an official from the  Ministry of Environment,  slating Ihe municipality had to  deal with the bylaw on a day lo  day basis anyway.  "It is your authority," he  continued, "but if in doubt we  would be glad to come out and  help."  Currie pointed out the bylaws  would reduce liability of the  municipality in a case of  Hooding.  Gibsons has two alluvial fan  flood hazard areas lhat the  Ministry of Environment has  marked out. One is along Char-  man Creek and the other along  Gibson Creek. The recommended bylaw would require building  restrictions specifying setbacks  from creeks, lop valley side  walls and the ocean in the fan  areas as well as floodplain levels  for slab or modular construction.  It was Ihe extent of those  restrictions thai gave council  members some concern.  "What if we decided to cut  that area down?" asked Mayor  Diane Strom referring to setback distances.  "We could decide not to approve the bylaw," said Currie,  explaining the ministry had  never excercised that option. It  was Currie who defined Ihe  floodplain areas and he assured  council there was much latitude  for site specific relaxations.  "It is acknowledged it is not a  perfect world," he said and urged that ministry people be contacted if there was every any  doubt about a situation.  Buchan look the opportunity  to ask Currie his opinion about  using White Tower Park as part  of a flood prevention area.  The White Tower Medieval  Society has leased the area and  has been steadfastly working  towards grooming it. Dayton  and Knight consultants have  suggested a concept of catchment that involves the use of  scenic pools that could double  as wildlife havens. The White  Tower Sociely are supportive of  the idea and council members'  have been keeping an eye on the  situation. Recently, Aldermen!  Kunstler and Reynolds did a site',  inspection.  Currie registered support of  the idea in principle.  "I think that always makes  sense," he said.

Ken Collins photo  Gerussi helps drive  The Fundraising Committee  of Sunshine Coasl Community  Services is very pleased to announce that Bruno Gerussi has  agreed lo act as General Chairman of our 1988 Donation  Drive.  Community Services has  launched a Donation Drive to  raise $50,000. This sum will  serve the needs of all 11 of its  services and enable new service  development, especially in the  areas of family counselling, in-  formation and referral, and services lo young people.  "We are very grateful to Mr.  Gerussi   for  taking  lime  out  from his very busy schedule to  support our Drive," said Val  Silver, Fundraising Commitlec  chair. "We are also very encouraged by the support of  other members of the communi-  ly who have taken on leadership  roles in our campaign."  Contributions have already  come in. The Trail Bay Merchants Associalion has  generously donated $500 and a  full page of advertising space  towards the Drive.  If you are interested in helping in some capacity and have  not yet been contacted, please  call 885-4687.  Gibsons has decided to sell a  million gallons of waler lo a  company experimenting with  technology lhal mighl allow  water to be towed lo southern  California.  According to Ihe municipality, a company known as  'Medusa', along wilh some ex-  perls from the University of  British Columbia, have come up  with a large synthetic bag Ihey  think will contain water in a  manner that will allow it to be  easily towed. Some of the firsl  experimenls on this concept will  be carried out in Howe Sound  or Georgia Strait.  One of the participants in the  experiment is local businessman  John  Smilh,  who  for many  years worked wilh the CBC  Beachcombers and owned and  operaied ihe Silver Cule.  The plan is to begin loading  waler on May 24. Originally,  the idea was lo pump water  ihrough Ihe line terminating at  Ihe governmenl wharf, bul  Public Works Superintendent  Skip Reeves came up with a better idea.  "We will be utilizing the  storm sewer system and the  water from Ihe new reservoir,"  he told the Coast News. This is  waler from the initial fill and  has io be dumped anyway. Apparently the experimenters are  not concerned with waler purity  bul are simply using il lo determine lowing characteristics.  Tank Top Style  Interlock JUMP SUITS  linn     ����J  O*.

One was a visit lo the Glasgow  Garden Festival which was officially opened by Chas and Di  while we were Ihere. We visited  ihe Fesiival, which is very much  like Expo, on a holiday Monday  when il was very busy. We were  in a busy restaurant with well  over 100 people inside when we  were suddenly asked lo leave Ihe  premises immediately. There  was a bomb threat in the  building, hul whal was  remarkable aboul the whole  operation was the speed and efficiency wilh which everyone  calmly left. Absolutely no panic  whatsoever, A whole area was  quickly cordoned  off,  police  were thoroughly searching the  area and nobody paid much attention to the procedure. One  does become very aware of the  IRA   situation   over   there.  Security is much tighter than ii  used lo be and people are constantly warned not to leave any  piece of luggage unattended,  particularly   at   airports   and  railway stations etc. A suitcase  or bag could easily contain a  bomb. Another highlight was  gelling lo Ihe Palace Theater in  London lo see the musical'Les  Miserables' which was absolutely marvellous. Il had seemed to  be an impossible task to make a  musical out of such a story, but  there il was in all its glory - a  masterpiece.  Of   course,   the   greatest  highlight of all was the sitting  Egmont News  up all night sessions chatting  with my sister whom 1 hadn't  seen for nine years. The tongue  must surely be the strongest  muscular organ in the body  because mine didn'l seem to  either wear out or even get tired.  Space will probably not allow  Ihe telling of more holiday incidents, so will leave some till  next time.

In a letter to the Sunshine  Coast Regional Dislrict  (SCRD), Thunderbird Drilling  and Blasting asked the board lo  lobby the Department of  Highways to resume the projeel  with local labour.  The board had decided to request a meeting with Provincial  Highways Minister Stephen  Rogers to discuss the hold up.  But it became apparent in the  ensuing discussion that some  blame for Ihe delay fell with Ihe  SCRD.  The stall has come from this  end," said SCRD Chairman  Peggy Connor.  "You mean we haven't even  written him a letter?" said  Director Gordon Wilson. "Well  no wonder he hasn't replied."

Teacher Bev Burgoyne, in a  letter to the Board said  "Sludenls from Elphinstone  were unfailingly well-mannered  and good-natured during the  irip. When plans were altered  because of some unforeseen  problem, our students took it in  their stride. For example, we  thought we would all be seated  together on the plane. When it  turned oul that our seats were  scattered, Elphinstone students  said, 'Oh, good, we'll get  lo meel new people!', whereas  ihe Vancouver students complained, 'But I want to sit nexl  lo Mary'.  "During mosl days, we did  aboul half the activities on our  own and ihe olher half wilh the  larger group. This necessitated  frequent meetings al a specific  time to catch the bus or meet a  lour guide. Not one of our  students was lale ever, while we  often had to wait for some of  the others.  "Finally, Elphinstone  students were always polite and  considerate to me and to each  other. They always look care to  see no one was left oul during  our activities and were unfailingly in their rooms by ihe 11pm  curfew."  Trustees were delighted wilh  the reporl, and, said Al Lloyd,  Students love museum  by George Cooper. 886-8520  Children of Carol Graham's  primary class in Cedar Grove  sent Idlers lo a represenlalive of  the Elphinslone Pioneer  Museum lo thank him for  visiting ihem with some hands-  on artifacts from past limes in  Ihis dislricl.

SPELL-A-THON  When Langdale Elemenlary  sel out to raise funds for leam  uniforms and lo help pay the  cost of their trip to the  Children's Fesiival in Vancouver, they chose a spell-a-  thon and raised $1500.  Spelling matches have gone  the way of slate blackboards, il  seems, and spelling skills scoffed at as unnecessary. Last heard  of here was the prize offered by  Fred Cruice of the Coast  News in the carly 1960's lo the  champion speller of the district.  Our pupils then did not reach  the bewildering levels of spelling  that appear in the state and national finals in the USA. The  Arizona Daily Sun of Flagstaff,  for instance, reported that the  word immiserization was the  one that decided the state's  champion this past April. Immiserization, we are lold, is a  condilion that often leads to the  misspelling of words.  Like a simple spelling match  in your home? Dust off your  dictionary, but leave it closed  until you've tried this list of  schoolteacher Lottie Campbell's: desiccate, supercede,  cemetery, concensus, accommodate, embarass, harass,  niece, inoculate, picknicking.  Three of the preceding words  are misspelled, by the way.  "We must write and let them  know how happy we are to hear  such good things of our  students."

I "These people don'l wanl lo  sjjend five years barking up a  tijee that's already lumber  somewhere else," she said.  | Miller complained that no  o|te from the Lands Department had ever visited the site  personally to determine its  feasibility.  j "There's been no actual investigation," he said.

Astrology is able  to make a person aware of  character flaws that can and  should be altered as well as bringing out latent talents one  may not realize one has. Thank  you Penny.

A recent sludy by Beuler,  featured in the Sun, explored  the inequities in the school  system in Vancouver. She  discovered lhal Ihe economic  level of the residents served by a  school had a direct effect on Ihe  quality of education delivered  by the school. Beuler stressed  lhal this in no way reflected on  the calibre of Ihe teachers, bul  was ralher an indication of the  types of leaching conditions  that they had lo deal wilh.  "Many teachers perform incredible one-man-band acts,"  said Beuler. "They are more  concerned with kid's problems  than they used lo be, and are  trying to provide social services  and teach academic things as  well."  Local teachers agreed and  said lhal many of Ihe services  that used lo be provided by  other social agencies are no  longer available.  "People look to education as  a cornerstone of democracy,"  Beuler continued. "Everyone  wants equality, yel will also  shift around if there are inequities." She said lhat location  of residence was the mosl  significant factor in whether a  student went on lo post-  secondary education, and in  British Columbia, only 17 percenl of Ihe population goes on  io higher education.  Beuler said thai parenls are  playing an increasingly active  role in Iheir children's education. Much of this takes the  form of fund raising, as parents  become alarmed at what they  see as a drop in educational  standards brought about by the  recent period of fiscal restraint.  Beuler, and local teachers, were  quick to point out that although  fund raising is important, help  to teachers in the schools is an  equally valuable contribution  made by parents.  Special programs, usually nol  funded by the Ministry of  Education, but by taxes raised  locally, were the hardest hit during budget cutbacks, but Beuler  warned that Ihere is a danger of  having loo many special programs, leaving the system unbalanced.  Beuler found lhal Ihe size of  a school often had a bearing on  the quality of education.  Sludenls feel more comfortable  in smaller schools where  sludenls and teachers all know  each olher, even though the  more sophisticated programs  are often available only in larger  schools. Jack Pope, Assistant to  the Superintendent of the local  district, reported that because  of ihe scaltered location of  schools on ihe Sunshine Coast,  schools lend to be smaller.  "But," he said, "it costs more  lo have small schools. You need  more teachers."  Beuler said thai most school  boards wanl lo be seen as fiscally responsible, and are being  cautious with local taxation.  Local Truslee Lynn Chapman,  citing Beulcr's statistic thai 80  percenl of young people in jails  are learning disabled, pointed  out thai failure lo deal with  such students at an early age is  aclually crealing a much more  cosily situation later on.  Beuler wenl on lo say that the  problems she encountered are  not isolated. There are educational reforms going on all over  the world as people everywhere  reassess the purpose of education.  Speaking of the Royal Commission on Education, Beuler  said lhal there were over 2000  submissions. Although there  were a lot of unrealistic requests"'  made by Ihe public that would  create an impossible taxation  burden, a great many of the  submissions contained excellent  ideas. She sees ihe members of  the Commission as people of integrity who are sincerely concerned with the need for  reforms in the system in order  lo meel Ihe needs of a changing  sociely.  "Scitu Tank Tops  SCRD balks  at lane for  Sechelt  The Sunshine Coast Regional  District (SCRD) is putting a  hold on granting Ihe District of  Sechelt a lane dedication by the  Sechelt sewer treatment plant.  SCRD Director Jim Gurney  moved that no further action be  taken on dedication for the lane  - which would provide access to  a new works yard on Surf Circle  - until several conditions are met  by Sechelt. Gurney said he  wanted written assurance that  the lane dedication would not  prejudice the board's position  with respect to ownership of the  sewage treatment plant, which  Sechelt has applied to take over,  that the neighbours surrounding  the facility have given their approval, and that the interests of  the Marsh Society have been  fully addressed. Gurney also  demanded that construction  drawings detailing particulars of  drainage and slope submitted  lo   ihe   Regional   Dislricl  "I find this rather  surprising," said Director Bob  Wilson, explaining that the concerns were being addressed and  he saw no reason for the SCRD  to hamstring an agreement,  which he and Gurney had worked on for three months.  "If you stop this, we're going  to be in a very awkward situation."  Wilson explained that  surveyors are currently on the  site, and he doesn't know when  iheir work will be completed.  To add lo the problem, the  Sechelt maintenance department is expected to vacate their  current premises by the end of  the month.  "I'd like to be dealt with  straight up," said Gurney.  Wilson asked that the  Regional District's concerns be  sent in writing for Sechelt  Council to address.

On aquaculture  Pollution fears are expressed  When a Powell River resident  arrived at the Sunshine Coast  Regional District (SCRD)  Foreshore Task Force meeting  Tuesday, it was clear that it  would not be an afternoon of  tea and sympathy.  Denouncing local aquaculture practices as enviromen-  lally hazardous, Clair Heffernan donned rubber gloves and  brandished an orange fish-farm  net before the task force  members. The net had been dipped in a copper-based paint to  repel algae growth and ensure  water circulation through the  farming area. Heffernan said  the practice is illegal.  "The use of cuprous-oxide is  a violation of the Pest Control  Act", she said, as the acrid  smell of the netting wafted  through the packed boardroom.  Task Force Chairman Gordon Wilson threw the question  open.  "Is it illegal in B.C. to use  this substance?"he asked. Clark  Hamilton of the Sunshine Coast  Aquaculture Association  replied: " No one has ever been  charged".  Hamilton added that no  more than 30 percent of fish  farms in the province use  cuprous-oxide treated nets.  "And they're moving away  from it,"he said.  The response failed to satisfy  Heffernan, who kept up her  momentum by outlining the  potential repercussions of continued use of the substance.  "There's no doubt it's toxic  to vertebrates and oysters," she  said, and suggest that as long as  treated nets are in use, nothing  caught in the area, not even  salmon themselves, can safely  be eaten.  B.C. Ministry of Agriculture  representative Michael Coon  was quick to take issue with this  statement.  "My staff have investigated  copper," he said, "and it's toxic  only in its inorganic form."  Coon added that, "it's true that  it kills things it comes in contact  with, but it does not kill things  in the environment."  Hamilton   added   that   the  amount of copper paint used in  salmon farming is a 'drop in the  bucket' compared to the  amount of CuO used in commercial Ashing.  But sentiment in the room  had clearly fallen to Heffernan,  and on a motion by vice-  chairman  Carole  Rubin,  the  task force agreed to write a letter to both the Federal  Agriculture Minister (under  whose jurisdiction the Pest  Control Products Act falls),  and to the Minister of Fisheries  and Oceans, suggesting that the  use of cuprous oxide in fish  farming be discontinued.  Foreshore funding  procedure debated  by Bruce Grierson  It may have been standard  government practice, but the  announcement came as a surprise to members of the  Foreshore Task Force Tuesday.  Municipal Affairs Ministry  representative, Tom Mafte-  chuk, told the assembly at the  Sunshine Coast Regional  District (SCRD) boardroom  that his department would grant  $40,000 toward phase two of  the Sechelt Inlet study with the  money to be given out upon  completion of the study.  The task force had asked  municipal affairs for $50,900 in  advance, to be used as venture  capital. But Maftechuk assured  the task force that this was not  the way the process worked.  "Funds are normally given  out after completion," he said.  "We've never advanced money  for a study."  The problem was re-addressed at Thursday night's SCRD  meeting in Sechelt. Director Jim  Gurney, said he felt it was "inappropriate" for the task force,  a provincial body, to have to  raise funding for a regional project.  Director Gordon Wilson said  it was the task force's designa  tion as "provincial" that is the  key to the problem.  As a further complication,  Mastechuk announced that the  $40,000 would be apportioned  equally between the District of  Sechelt and the SCRD, since  these are the two municipal  bodies with whom the task force  works most closely.  Wilson said Thursday he  plans to go to Victoria with  alderman Bob Wilson of Sechelt  to speak with Erik Karlson  (Municipal Affairs Planning  Director) himself to try and  secure the funding in advance.  With open bidding for phase  one of the Sechelt Inlet study,  recently completed by Catherine  Berris and Associates, attention  has shifted to phase two of the  project.  In discussion Tuesday at the  SCRD boardroom, members of  the foreshore task force were of  several minds on how to proceed.  Task force chairman Gordon  Wilson proposed a kind of  selected bidding process,  whereby tenders would be accepted from the seven or so candidates (including Berris) who  have expressed interest in the  project.  Wilson discouraged an open  tender system, which he feared  would attract "everyone with a  master's degree looking for a  project to take on," presumably  resulting in administrative  headaches.  But Tuwanek Ratepayers Association representative and  task force member Diana  Davidson, said she felt the decision is a formality, and the process is unfair to new candidates.  Never one to mince words,  Davidson stated, "I'd be willing  to bet anyone in this room  $1000 up front that Catherine  Berris gets the phase two con-  "tract," since Berris has the  background and current data on  the project.  "We should be straight about  what we're doing," said Davidson. "The other candidates  need to be made aware of their  chances, so they know whether  or not to invest the time."  Davidson suggested the task  force either go with Davidson or  throw the bidding open.  The assembly decided that in  the interest of fairness and in  keeping with past task force  policy, open bids would be accepted, with the terms to be  hammered out by a subcommittee chaired by Davidson.  9>\  '^0��  * DOLPHIN MINI-MALL     6  "The LITTLE Mall with the BIG Values!"

Place Setting  JrW ��gj^  5714 Cowrie St.,  Sechelt  885-3611  qCITCHEN  CARNIVAL  Beachcomber Beat  Show features bikers  Last week they owned the  lown. Perhaps you saw them  slow-dragging Gower Pt. Road  in aviator shades and cereal-  bowl helmets, or had one blitz  past your Pontiac in close imitation of an F-I8 tly-by. Bikers.  Eight of them, encased in  leather, and coolly imposing on  iheir low-slung Harley Davidsons.  But those who dared approach ihem discovered sure  signs lhat these were bikers of a  different ilk: a briefcase strapped io a bike's rattrap; an electronic pager dangling from a  calfskin belt.  ' 'They're yuppie bikers," explains Beachcombers producer  Derek Gardner, whose program  hired the contingent to play  'The Devil's Disciples' in last  night's episode. Most are gainfully employed, and those who  aren'l are 'trying to gel a  business off the ground'.  Many of the group of eight,  made up of four locals, two  Vancouver actors, and two  Beachcomber stuntmen who are  themselves ex-bikers, are trying  lo capitalize on the market for  consultants in television and  motion picture production.  Several of the members came to  Gibsons from the Bridge stages  in Burnaby, where they served  as technical advisors to the  American television series  MacGyver.  Mike 'Trink' Reber owns the  local auto wreckers and has appeared in an episode of Danger  Bay and a CBS Special. Rob  'Moby' Ellam is a carpenter by  trade.  The CBC paid the bikers a  stipend for their Beachcomber  work which included $75 per  day for the use of the motorcycles.  Although Don 'Black Ban'  Windsor claims his 1500 cc  stroked engine Harley is  "capable of evading high-speed  pursuit, the bikes themselves  are, by and large, nol the  brawny touring machines they  appear. For all their chrome  and shotgun piping, these bikes  are mainly for show."  "The bikes are so specialized,  1 doubt any of them could make  it from here lo Hope wilhoui  breaking down," says Gardner.  The producer insists ihe  bikers were perfect gentlemen  during the week of shooting,  and is quick lo quell the fears  of local residenls afraid that  Gibsons will turn inlo a pil of  high-octane iniquity. "There's  no need to lock up your  daughters," he says, "these  bikers won't bile."  Gibsons sewer  problems solved?  Within a few weeks Gibsons  should know at last if its sewage  treatment plant can be rendered  odourless and for an approximate cost of under $4000.  For the last month Gibsons  Public Works Superintendent  Skip Reeves has been rounding  up scrap parts with which to  build two new digesters that  Dayton and Knight, municipal  engineers, say will solve the problem of offensive odours drifting down on homes situated  near the plant.  Reeves had located the  necessary pumps immediately  but was having trouble locating  a suitable tank. Last week he  found one that had been an old  fuel tank at St. Mary's  Hospital.  The next step will be to install  the tanks at the plant site and to  hook up the network of pipes  and pumps that the town hopes  will solve the problem. According to Reeves, the key to the  solution is the venturi principle  by which air (in this case) is introduced into the raw sewage.  If this works, Reeves says the  town will have the present  digester converted into a storage  and thickening facility. According to Reeves the only  modification necessary to do  this will be the construction of  an internal dividing wall out of  concrete.  To accomplish this the contents will have to be trucked to  the SCRD plant in Sechelt but  Reeves says the new digesters  once working should be able lo  function withoul the storage  tank for the time needed to install the wall.  The major cost so far has  been for the pumping and piping materials: approximately  $2300. Another thousand  dollars has been used up for  labour and the tank purchase.  Reeves estimates the projeel so  far has cost 10 percent of what  it would have cost if the parts  were purchased new.  Some Things  Change...  And  Some Things  Stay the Same!

FOR INFORMATION CALL 984-4951.  capilano  r*rllt__rt__\ 2055 Purce" WaV  UUIICyC    North Vancouver, B.C.  by Peter Trower  Almost immediately, a major  problem arose. Afler due consideration, the B.C. government  vetoed the use of Bear Glacier.  They discerned a conflict of interest between tourism and industry. Also the area was slated  to be made a national park at  some future date. The partners  were compelled to look elsewhere. They settled on the nearby Salmon Glacier and, as  things turned out, it proved to  be much the beller choice.  The  fact   that   the  glacier  calves into a fresh water lake  lhat conveniently goes dry for  several months each year was a  definite   plus.   The   Salmon  Glacier  also  produces  a   far  greater quantity of calved ice  than the Bear. In addition to  this, however, there is a well  maintained access road running  directly pasl Summit Lake, a  welcome heritage from the days  when the Granduc Company  was mining molybdenum in the  area. The location was absolutely ideal for their purposes. The  lake could be harvested even  when full of water by the use of  dozer boats, much as in log sorting. As far as an assured supply  of glacial ice went, all systems  were go. In June 1985, the name  of the company was changed to  Ice Age Ice Inc., in deference to  the new improved site.  Now came Ihe question of a  processing planl where Ihe huge  chunks could be crushed, washed, graded for size and packaged. An ideal building was found  near Ihe wharfhead in Stewart.  A huge box-like structure,  which had been used as a  soundstage by Hollywood filmmakers for such productions as  Bear Island and Iceman, was  now up for lease by Ihe Departmenl of Transport.  Reg Keating lost no lime in  acquiring the building and,  piece by piece, a processing  planl began to lake shape. The  plan was, and is, to stockpile ice  in Ihe summer and fall and process it during the notoriously  severe Stewart winters. The product icm end of the; company  -figuratively, at* least - was in" "  place.  Two major hurdles remained  - transportation and marketing.  These were major obstacles and  Gallery  Gleanings  by Vivian Chamberlin  Spring has sprung, and the  Hunter Gallery has jusi the  right atmosphere for a browse  as you stroll the lower part of  Gibsons.  Anne Gurney has a new  'batch' of mugs and bowls in  browns and blues wilh unique  touches of design.  The Browns - Joe and Malle  -have some very touchable  woodwork there lo see and feel.  Be sure to notice Ihe Iwo plaques by Malle on the wall - a  wise owl and a dear deer in a  very unusual technique.  If you are looking for a  sweater for mom, handknit by  Frankie Christofferson, this is  the place. She also has on  display baby sels, and children's  and men's sweaters.  The newest artist to hang a  show of paintings will be Louise  McPhedran on May 16 lo June  6. Working exclusively in water-  colour for the pasl four years,  'Lou' has developed a special  technique for her birds, animals  and plant forms which results in  tapestry-like patterns in soft and  gentle tones of colour.  She is an active member of  the FCA, mostly self-taught.  She has taken courses at the  Calgary Institute of Technology  and Art, and various seminars  over the years.  This is a preview of her new  work, as three shows are  scheduled in the North Vancouver Municipal and City  Government buildings in 1989.

LBon _Bom  Cowrie St.. Sechell    885-2687  called for an infusion of new-  blood - men with experience and  business savvy who could guide  Ihe fledgeling company through  the tricky waters ahead. The  First of these was West Vancouver businessman, John  Hoegg, who joined Ice Age Ice  as chairman in the summer of  1986, convinced that the idea  had immense potential. Hoegg  brought with him a string of impressive credentials. He was  president of Grouse Mountain  Resorts for several years; vice  president of Kaiser Resources  and president of the Granville  Island Hotel and Marina Complex. In 1978, he was recipient  of Vancouver's 'Man of the  Year' award. John Hoegg's  connections and expertise gave  Ice Age Ice an invaluable boost  and a much-needed shot of  credibility.  Business consultant Jack Lott  came into the company in the  fall of the same year, inilally to  do an engineering feasibility  study. Lott also has a highly  creditable track record behind  him. Since coming to Vancouver from Ontario in 1970, he  has been involved in many important projects including the  Skytrain Station/Seabus Terminal and the Regina Agridome  in Saskatchewan. In 1981, Lott  formed CHC Consultants,  specializing in project management, prefabricated design and  construclion, and China contract negotiations.  Jack Lott, an articulate,  silver-haired man in his 50's,  finished his study for Ice Age  Ice in December 1986. By this  time, however, he had become  thoroughly hooked on the  whole concept of putting glacial  ice on a commercial basis. In  March 1987, he joined forces  with ihe company on a full-lime  basis as projeel manager.  (During this period, Al  Gomash, Reg Kealing's original  partner, elected lo leave Ice Age  Ice to pursue other interests. He  exchanged his shares for a  substantial   royalty   arrange-  ment)        To be continued...  (Sibaona Sanding ilrftntrc SS?

Sui  Cal Rhythms of Life  Geminis'  need  is knowledge  by Penny Fuller  What do you give a person  whose Sun Sign is Gemini for a  birthday present? Jewelry?  Clothes? Flowers? While any of  those things may or may not appeal to them, a sure bet is to buy  them something that feeds the  Gemini thirst for knowing.  A trip to the Orient would be  nice, but if that doesn't seem to  fit into your budget guidelines,  a trip to some interesting place  in Vancouver will do. Books are  always good, or a subscription  to a really informative  magazine. It seems that it is  almost impossible to satisfy a  Gemini Sun person's curiosity  about the universe.  If you are one of the people  born between May 21 and June  22, you are probably as close as  a human being can get to being  a computer. You may have been  the child that drove your  parents to distraction asking  questions about everything and  anything that caught your eye,  because from early in your life  you've wanted to know more,  and more, and more.  The significant difference  between the information accumulation powers of a computer and you, is that you have  the ability to analyse the data  coming in and learn from it  before you offer it to others.  The problem is, you can get so  excited by learning, and sharing  what you've learned, that you  skip that essential middle step.  While knowledge for its own  sake fascinates you, the integration process that we call 'learning' is a lot slower and may bore  your quicksilver mind. It's  worth it though.  You have an unlimited potential for growth because you  never stop asking questions.  Whether you're two years old or  eighty-five, there's still more  that you want to find out and  explore. But try to take the time  to make what you learn a part  of yourself. That's when the  growth happens. It will also add  a richness to what you share  with others. And you should  share your knowledge of the exploration of life.  Something that might aid  that assimilation process, as  well as being a true gift to  others, is writing. I'm not  necessarily saying that the story  of your life would be of inerest  to the entire Canadian population, but it could serve as a  wonderful link with your grandchildren, and great grandchildren, etc.  The passing on of some of  the knowledge that you've acquired could be the most  valuable legacy that you could  leave behind. And one of the  best ways to learn is to teach.  Coast News, May 16,1988  19.  The  Sunshine  Coasl   Arts  Cenlre  is  presently  displaying  a  photography show that should not he missed.

M_MB_______  Your guide to  the finest in  area dining  A listing of  restaurants  and pubs  lomt oi  There comes a lime in every person's life when the romance of  the moment dictates the subtleties of line French cuisine.  Such was last Friday evening bul the question was, "Where lo  go?" Summer was on the horizon and my wife more lhan  deserved a memorable evening.  So I made reservations for two al ihe Creekhouse Reslauranl  in Roberls Creek.  A casual glance al the menu showed a selection suitable for  any palate. There was pasta, salmon, veal, rack of lamb, and  scampi - all of course in French wilh English subtitles for people  like me who love the phrasing bul can't speak it.  I chose la Cole de Boeuf Maribeau (that's a rib eye cut of beef  grilled wilh olives and anchovies) and les Artichautes ai la  Brigoule (marinated artichokes with prosciullo ham and pickled  vegetables).  The presentation was a treat in Itself. Richly coloured and  thin sliced prosciutto ham squared off a medium sized plate the  center of which was graced wilh the artichokes bathed in a  creamy sauce. All of Ihis was displayed on a bed of butter lettuce.  From there it got better. My spouse ordered les Palour des  Creekhouse (clams with chorizo sausage, while wine, cilanlro,  and butter) and la Salade Niciosc aux Crevettes (butter lettuce,  artichokes, hard boiled eggs, tomato, peppers, onions, tuna, anchovies, and shrimps). Neither of these items were entrees bul  bolh combined to make a lovely meal.  A half litre of Cote de Luberon and the meal was complete.  Mmmmmmmm we had far more than sufficient so we  came home with a couple of nice lunches for the next day from  what we could not finish.  And the total cost? Around $42 wilhout ihe wine or lip and  we saved the airfare to France.  Average meal prices quoted  do not include liquor.

GIBSONS  LANES  Hwy. 101 & Pratt Rd., Gibsons 886-7359  Harold Webster won the Special  Event tournament with, believe  it or not and under extreme  pressure, a net 12 under par!  That is around 56 net as I see it.  Second team players were Ken  Hinks and Jack C. Ross with 10  under, followed in third by Paul  Smith and Ed Laidlaw with 9  under. That Hawaiian Al Dean  and partner Ted Kurluk were  fourth with Bob Rose and Bill  Peterson in fifth place. There  were about five teams tied for  fourth and fifth place with a  playoff determining the last two  places.  If that wasn't enough  Freeman Sandy McReynolds,  (as he is sometimes known),  also came in Ihe big winner on  Wednesday night Men's Twilight with a sizzling 34 gross for  nine holes. He was followed by  Ken White with 37 gross. The  low nel winner was Jim Fogliet-  ta with 29. Take note Lyall.  The nine hole ladies '2 day,  nine hole' tournament winner  was Hazel Earl, with Pat Dad-  son and Doreen McGrath lied  for low putts. I don'l see my  wife's name among Ihe winners  yel!  The 18-hole ladies held their  CLGA Pin Round with Mary  Horn winning at a nel 65. In  leam play Mary Horn (65),  Connie Grant (66) and Virginia  Douglas (69) came in first.  Helen Milburne (66), Rita  Hinks (67) and Barb Lawrence  (68) were second followed by  Marie MacPherson (71), Carol  Skylte (71) and Betty Laidlaw  (74). All scores being nel.  Al their April meeting the  sub-committee in charge came  up with another fine rule that I  am certain will be acclaimed as  a greal step forward in the annals of golf. They, in their  wisdom, finally realize that no  golfer in his right mind would  drive a ball in such a manner as  to intentionally hit a tree.  Therefore, in future any ball  hilling a tree and deflecting into  ihe woods is deemed nol lo have  hit the tree at all and can be  placed back onto the fairway as  near as possible lo where it  would have landed had the tree  not been there. This rule has  been endorsed by medical people everywhere as a means of  relieving some of Ihe mental  pressures on golfers.  Did you knew...

Gardening  notes  by Marguerite  At this time of year slugs are  very much in evidence and we  need to control them.  Veterinarians remind us to be  very careful of our use of  placements of slug bait meal,  which should be placed in an  area out of reach of children  and pets, and also our birds.  The meal must be covered, so  only the slugs eat them, and  there is a liquid for this purpose,  which may be more convenient.  A walk around the garden,  picking Ihem up is the cheapest  method. Vets have many cases  where animals are made sick  unnecessarily.  We should be free of frost by  May 24, but if some plants do  get a frost overnight, they can  survive if sprayed with  lukewarm waler right away.  There is just enough time to  plant your large Russian Giant  or Mammoth Russian Giant  sunflower seeds. Gibsons and  Sechelt Garden Clubs are supporting a children's largest  sunflower contest wilh prizes  given in early September this  year.  All schools will be contacted,  open to all ages wilh a (een section too. Plant the seeds one-  half inch deep, six inches apart,  in your sunniest posilion as  possible. Give ihem lots of fertilizer, and a constant supply of  moisture to sustain their  massive, rapid growth. Good  luck.  The Gibsons Garden Club  meeting will be held on Thursday, May 19 in Ihe Marine  Room.  Mr. Ian McGlashan from  Vancouver will speak on the  subject of 'vegetable growth'.

"It's not too late to reverse  the free trade deal," was the  message given to a small but  supportive audience that turned  out to hear labour's views on  free trade  On the evening of May 3rd  ihe Sunshine Coast Labour  Council sponsored the 7:30  meeting at the Gibsons Legion  with guest speakers Cliff Ands-  tein, Secretary-Treasurer of the  B.C. Federation of Labour, Len  Werden, President of the  B.C./Yukon Building Trades  Council, and Larry Widen  representing the Canadian  I abour Congress.  According to Andslein, free  irade has little to do with irade  or jobs and once instituted,  there will be no turning back.  "Eighty percent of products  are already  tariff  free,"  he  From former cabinet minister  Chamber hears  political analysis  Ray Gillis Williston, a resident of Gibsons, whose personal resume is a display of  monumental accomplishments,  was Ihe guest speaker at the  Gibsons Chamber of Commerce dinner and meeting  Wednesday evening.  Rising from a school teacher  to superintendeni of schools,  Williston entered politics in  1953 and was a key figure in the  Peace River and Columbia  power projects during the WAC  Bennet years.  Those post-war years were  ones of dynamic economic  growth for British Columbia  and Williston had a front row  seal from which lo view it. His  after dinner speech to the local  chamber of commerce at the  Pronto's   restaurant   meeting  3-  ^graplT  grapnics  886-3695  for nil Miur  Commercial Priiuing War*  P.M.T.'s, Special  Cnnwrn Work  was a fast-paced and compacted  reflection of the past contrasted  with extremely frank views of  the present government.  "WAC Bennel was a man of  aclion who came into B.C. at a  time when action was  required," said Williston. "He  attracted olher men of action."  Williston traced back the  Bcnnetl years right to the time  when WAC crossed the floor  and went independent. There  had been a Liberal/Conservative coalition that was  disintegrating, he said. The  World War II veterans were  coming home and needed jobs.  Bennett was a backbencher at  the lime.  "He got mad and decided lo  become an independent," he  said. "But he found out he  needed support."  So apparently Bennett looked  to Alberta where he got the idea  of Social Credit even though he  modified the party philosophy  for what he saw as the needs of  B.C.  "There was almost a revolution when he came in. The firsl  thing he demanded was fiscal  responsibility. He wanted Ihe  province lo be debt-free."  Then came the years of  growth: roads, communications, and power dams.

He  went on to explain that Bennett  was conscious of the needs of  the rural areas.  "You have to start the Peace  before the Columbia," Williston quoted Bennett as saying.  "He said there would be a  20-year delay if the Peace was  not started first because the  Columbia was coming  anyway."  But according to Williston  the good times were killed by  the unionization of the public  service sector.  "Everybody in Ihe mid-60's  decided they had rights rather  than responsibilities," he said.  Suddenly there were pensions,  paid holidays and superannuation.  "The unions bargained on industry's ability to pay," said  Williston. Then the public servants became a dominant force.  "But they were not paid on  Ihe basis of productivity," said  Williston.  Then came Keynesian economics thai advocated pumping  money into the economy lo offset depressions and according to  Williston that was the start of  B.C.'s problems.  "All this came to a head in  1972," he said. "WAC said  'We can't afford more than six  percent.' He committed political suicide.  "The teachers led the revolt  against the government," he  continued. Then came the NDP  and the money was all spent.  "Within three years the civil  service was tremendously expanded. People became alarmed." According to Williston  Ihey then became disenchanted  and Bill Bennett was put into  power. But the younger Bennett  didn't want to be associaied  with his father.  "They were all greenhorns in  governmenl," said Williston,  stating thai Ihe expanded civil  service put in by the NDP remained in place.  "Bill Bennett woke up one  day and had lo initiate a serious  restraint program."  But Williston said it wasn't  enough. "All he did was to arrest the increase of the annual  deficit. And it hasn't started to  come down yet. Bennett backed  off and backed out."  Williston then launched into  energentic defense of the Coquihalla by comparing its cosl  to health care, education, and  social services. "Those three  departments have had a $3.05  billion increase since the Coquihalla.  "It's time we, as people, got  our feet on the ground," said  Williston as he wrapped up his  speech. "Unless the level of expectation comes down, we are  going down...down...down... If  we ran our own homes like we  run the government we would  all be in jail."

What will free trade do lo  B.C.?  As well as massive job losses,  especially in the small business  and service sectors, and a loss of  social benefits such as medicare  and minimum wage protection,  Andslein predicts the whole of  Canada will change in a way  lhal will make it unrecognizable.  Pari of Andsiein's reasoning  for ihis is the 'level playing  field' concept lhat is a principle  component in the agreement.  He pointed out the vast difference in both the economic  power and population sizes of  the two countries and suggested  lhal Canada would have little if  any influence on the USA.  Rather than going up, Canadian  standards would go down.  "Who do you think is going  lo change?" Andstein asked the  audience. "Nine US states have  no minimum wage laws. The  minimum wage in Texas is  $1.40 US an hour. How low do  they wanl our standards to go  before they see a level playing  field?  Privatization is not a separate  issue. "Free trade locks into  place deregulation and privatization," he explained and suggested lhat hospitals and labs,  post secondary education, and  jails are being seriously considered being put into private  hands and that would mean  restricted and diminished services.  "It has already started to  happen in Ontario with  hospitals and corruption is  entering into it in the form of  unnecessary admissions."  Bui according to Andstein  there will be an even greater impact. "Under Free Trade, any  government must consult with  the US before setting up any  public monopoly and must  reimburse any US companies  affected." In Andstein's view,  ihis would completely change  Ihe face and character of whal  we presently know as Canadian  sociely.  "Write your MLA's," he  urged. "The agreement threatens all that we have built and all  that we wish to build."

CYNTHIA HAWKSWORTH  MANAGER  "\  ���s  4  T)  I   ,  ") i  ���te  _.s 24.  Coast News, May 16,1988  Letters to the Editor  Home Support budget stinted  Editor:  While olher health care sectors have received increases bet-  , ween 11.5 percent (Medical Services Plan) and 12.5 percent  (Emergency Services) in this  year's provincial budget  estimales, the budget for Home  Support Services has only been  increased by .001 percent.  The Home Support Association of British Columbia is  puzzled and dismayed by this  extremely low increase for  several reasons:  All major reporlr regarding  heallh care planning for the  lullire in British Columbia  make recommendations that  Home Support Services such as  homemakers, respite care  workers, and adull day care  centres be increased lo alleviate  pressure on hospitals and long  term care facilities;  Home Support Services have  been proven to be cost effective  and the preferred mode of care  for the chronically ill and young  disabled population;  Home Support Services,  combined with appropriate use  of physician and nursing care,  enable individuals lo delay or  prevent admission to hospitals  and facilities and promoles early discharge from hospitals;  The average hours of Home  Support Service per month/per  client have declined by 32 percent over the past five years.  The minimal budget increase of  .001 percent for 1988/89 combined with the significant  decrease of care over five years  shows critically declining care  levels for the chronically ill and  disabled citizens of Brilish Columbia;  Home Support Service is one  of Ihe lowest cost health services. If clients cannot access an  Vandalism note  Editor:  We wish to address the issue  of the senseless vandalism that  was inflicted on Chatelech  Secondary School on Ihe weekend of May 9.  We, the 1988 graduating class  of Elphinstone Secondary,  realize thai the nalure of the  vandalism points the finger of  blame directly at us. As we do  nol yet know who the vandals  are, we cannot accept nnr deny  the blame, bul we do sincerely  apologize if, in fact, il was one  or more of us.  Our objective is to work  together as a community to  hopefully find oul who the true  offender is. We hope you can  accept ihis tentative apology  and understand the position we  are in so that we can both avoid  any hostility that may otherwise  arise in the future.

The Home Support Association of British Columbia  believes lhal today's priority for  health care funding must be to  community and home support  heallh services. With the continual erosion of the level of  Home  Support   Services,  the  cost of health care in British  Columbia will rise, not  decrease, and the quality of life  and health care for seniors and  the disabled living at home will  be jeopardized.

Ken Collins pholo  A Guiness Book entry  There is a story currently in  the news of 10,000 fishermen,  wise in the universal problems  of their calling both human and  finny, now faced with the final  impossible one that their sea is  disappearing.  The story comes from perhaps the most ancient of lands,  the mysterious country east of  the Caspian Sea, where there  are storied places like Tashkent  and Samarkand, where the old  wars ended with pyramids of  skulls - Conan the Barbarian  country.  Here is the Aral Sea, a salt,  inland sea, 200 miles long, 100  miles wide. It used to produce  over ten per cent of the entire  fish catch for the Soviet Union.  Over just the last 30 years, the  Aral Sea has lost an astonishing  60 per cent of ils water. The sea  level has fallen almost 40 feet.  Its main port lown, Muinak is  now 30 miles inland.  Greed is what has done it.  The Aral Sea is fed by two great  rivers, one of them the old Oxus  of story and legend. It flowed  once through half mythical  kingdoms. Now it flows  through the land of the Uzbeks.  The Uzbeks, traditionally  Muslim and described as  'dusky', are nowadays of  course, al least officially, communist. They have however, the  widespread reputation of being  the most corrupt of Societ  Socialist Republics.  Dancing into record book  by Marguerite  In Libya in 1946, men of the  second batalion Gordon  Highlanders and friends performed an eightsome reel with  16 sets consisting of 128 men,  all dancing at the same time. It  had never been done before.  They attained acclaim, and it is  entered in the Guinness Book of  Records.  Earlier this year a challenge  was issued for Scottish country  dance groups from all over  B.C., including Vancouver  Island and the United States, to  double this record. They accepted.  With monthly practices since  January, the 256 computerized  eightsome reel was programmed  by Ian Price, and the groups  were coached by the well-known  Scottish dance teacher Mrs.  Mary Murray of Vancouver.  Gibsons' Elphinstone country  dance group were proud and  honoured to have participated  in this one-time event, and with  Don Cadenhead as their local  teacher, they were confident it  could be done.  So on May 24 at Simon  Fraser University, as a fitting  end to the Highland Arts  Festival 1988, the moment arrived to go for the record, the  World's Largest Scottish Country Dance.  The Simon Fraser University  Pipe Band, led by Pipe Major  Terry Lee, are world class  champion pipers, winning Se-  31.

They  piped the 256 dancers, men and  women, majestically in a grand  march to the academic  quadrangle concourse, where  they danced the mammoth reel.  It took 11 minutes, and after  a short rest, an encore was given  and people who were 'spares'  danced in the second session.  The event was recorded on  tape, which our local Cable 11  may be able to show at some  future date. It was an overwhelming moment, with  tumultous cheers and yells at  the conclusion when we knew  we had made the Guinness  Book of Records. Well done  organizers and participants.

They now provide the rest of the Soviet Union  with 95 per cent of ils cotton, a  successful business. But they  were in a hurry for the profits,  no thought was given to recycling the water back to the  sea. The canals were just  scooped out of the ground, not  even lined with concrete.  Now what has been described  as the world's worst man-made  ecological disaster is growing in  central Asia. The salt desert  from the dried sea bed blows  huge dusl clouds laden wilh sail  oul over ever-widening areas of  crop lands which now feed the  fastest growing populations in  the Soviet. More, the Aral Sea is  a decisive catalyst for the  climate or all Asia. In time the  rood supply or India will be arretted.  Faced with all this, the main  Soviet plan was to divert waters  from the rivers of the north.  Five great rivers run north  through Siberia to the Arctic  ocean. Engineering studies said  two of them could be reversed.  But the plan infuriated Russian  and international experts. Any  diversion of fresh water  reaching the Arctic, they said,  would have incalculable consequences. It could, they said,  trigger a new ice age.  The project was shelved 18  months ago, declared dead. But  within the last month, Mikhael  Gorbachev, surely the world  leader with the most problems  on his plate, was himself in  Tashkent. He did a full review  of the whole dreadrul mess, and  has ordered the project reopened, ice age or no ice age  presumably.  We can, I hope, sympathize  with the Russian dilemma. We  did, or course, do something the  same when everyone told us not  to scratch the prairie bald to  grow wheat. But we are the firsl  and principal recipient or any  ecological fiddlings with the  Arctic. Could it be that someday we will see rallies and marches with placards saying NO  ICE AGE?

Coast News, May 16,1988  Foreshore concerns  Ombudsman comes to listen  You got the impression no  one really knew who he was or  whal he did, but most of those  presenl al Ihe Foreshore Task  Force meeling Tuesday appeared glad he was on the job.  The man was Michael Skinner,  an investigator from Ihe provincial Ombudsman's office  assigned io examine and make  recommendations on fish farming within Ihe province. Skinner  was given ihe duly last  September afler his office  received complaints from properly owners aboul the sudden  intrusion of aquaculture into  iheir milieu.  According to Skinner, his  mandate is twofold: to examine  ihe individual complaints from  uplands landowners, and lo  conduct a 'systems sludy', in  essence a detailed analysis of Ihe  roles of the various provincial  bodies wilh respect to  aquaculture adminislration, and  Ihe mechanics of that administration.  Skinner, who sees his role as  'to ensure administrative  fairness' is compiling a discussion paper which will address  and make recommendations on  86 areas within the rubric of  aquaculture.  When asked by Task Force  Chairman Gordon Wilson, "To  whai extent arc Ihese recommendations binding?" Skinner  replied, "To no extent al all.  "Our powers of investigation  arc virtually unlimited," he conlinued, explaining lhal under  the Ombudsman's Acl his office  has access to the files of any  governmenl ministry. But his  departmenl cannol legislate.  "We are only al liberty to make  recommendations,"  he  said.  "and only to provincial agencies."  Skinner explained that (while  aquaculture is regulated by both  ihe province and the feds ) the  province, in this case 'holds the  cards,' because the actual  aquatic area falls within provincial jurisdiction.  One of the few to overtly  challenge Skinner and his function in the scenario, was Task  Force member Diane Davidson.  "Your're treating this as an  administrative law problem,"  she said, "and administrative  law is a form of totalitarianism.  It's nothing more than a long-  lerm plan lo erode Ihe judicial  system."  "I think that's a skeptical  poinl of view," replied Skinner.  "Administrative law should be  a powerful vehicle for obtaining  justice." He pointed out that  once the recommendations are  released, ihere will be ample opportunity for public input, and  appeals on several levels.  Task Force Chairman Gordon Wilson, who seemed to be  waiting for just the right moment to ante his two cents,  parachuted into the discussion  wilh what he called a  'philosophical approach to  foreshore management'. Wilson  delineated the two parts of the  problem as he sees them: "Who  has jurisdiction?", and "What  is Ihe nature of the resource?"  "By disposing of the top of  the water (by allowing fish farming), we are essentially  privatizing a common property  resource, with no clear idea of  how lo priorize one's claim."  Davidson called Wilson's  summation 'brilliant', and the  crowd broke into spontaneous  applause.
