Recently, Ul and other social assistance  programs have come under attack for escalating costs in many political quarters.  This week, the government announced  Ul premiums paid by both workers and  employers will soon be rising to help offset  costs of the program.  On the Sunshine Coast, approximately  $16 million in benefits are paid out annually to claimants.  John Duncan, recently elected MP for  the Sunshine Coast, is one of those who  would like to see some changes.  The Reform party would like to see the  Local  students  get taste  of criminal  justice  system  by Jane Seyd  How do you become a judge?  How old do you have to be  before you can be put in jail?

Says  Duncan, "UIC is a program that's too lucrative     *���*���������___  in too many areas."  Of particular interest to the Sunshine  Coast, seasonal labour in which workers  collect UI in the off season, is one area  that's being looked at by politicians like  Duncan. That's raised the hackles of some  in resource-based industries like logging  realty don't need it'  ���John Duncan  to some fishermen in his  riding who told him "if  you're any kind of fisherman, you don't need the  UI program."  Those kind of comments have raised  the ire of people like Jim Sinclair, business  agent for the United Fishermen and Allied  Workers Union, who says politicians are  looking for scapegoats to deflect attention  from rising unemployment rates and lack  of job creation.  Fishermen and other seasonal workers  ate "entitled to qualify for UI like everyone else," says Sinclair.  "What (the critics) suggest is you can  get UI for almost no work," he says.  But fishermen can only collect UI from  Nov IS to May 1 each year, he says, while  benefits paid to those with an annual  interne over $30,000 are taxed back later.  In fact, says Sinclair, income for  crewmembers is more likely to range  between $8,000 and $20,00. (A survey of  local crewmembers on the Sunshine Coast  this year revealed many earn under  $20,000.)  "People want to work," he says. "They  want more weeks. They want to earn more  money."  turn to page 2  Grade six and seven students under the tutelage of teacher Maureen McBeath (not shown) are studying the Canadian court system in  class and In the courtroom.

Some courtrooms are more  elaborate, said Judge Giroday,  but "as long as it's a big enough  room and there are benches and  some security measures," it's  acceptable.  The visit to court Ihis week is  part of a look at the Canadian  judicial system and court process which the two classes been  have studying in school, said  teacher Maureen McBeath.  "The whole idea is to make  them more aware of what the  laws are," she said. At the  moment, "their basic knowledge  of court comes off TV"; often  from American programs.  "We want to bring it into real  life," said McBeath.  "They get a lot of distorted  information."  "It's better to come and see  what happens in their own community."  On Tuesday, students sat  through a typical remand morning in Sechelt court, watching  one woman plead guilty to  impaired driving after puttng her  car in the ditch, one man plead  guilty to assault after hitting his  common-law wife, and another  man faced the judge on shoplifting charges.  turn to page 3  Reform Party MP John Duncan lops off part of salary  by Ian Cobb  There will be a charity somewhere in the North Island-Powell  River federal riding, currently  ruled by Reform Party member  John Duncan, that will benefit  from his political career.  Duncan announced Dec. 13  that he will donate five per cent  of his MP salary to a "charity of  his choice" in the riding.  The announcement is in keeping with some of Duncan's preelection promises, such as being  against government pensions and  the abuse of perks and privileges.  "Our pension.-, position is consistent with campaign promises  on making the plan similar to  what is available to other Canadians," he said.  He noted that he opted to  make a cut in his salary after  reviewing his "personal situation  and it was appropriate to take a  reduction."  Duncan said he will make  monthly donations to different  charities. "My intent is not to  announce where they're going. If  the recipient wants to announce  il, that's fine with me."  As a member of Parliament,  Duncan earns $64,400 per annum  plus $25,000 in tax free expenses.  The five per cent he's lopping  off is from the $64,400. So, each  month, Duncan will be making  out cheques of about $266.66 to  a charity.  Duncan isn't alone in this  move as other Reform MPs are  doing the same, ranging from  five to 15 per cent donations.  "The reality of it is there's a  charitable tax receipt coming to  me," Duncan is quick to admit,  but he likes the idea of putting  the money back into his riding.  "I have a feeling it would be  rather meaningless to have it  (money) go back to general revenue," he said.  Noting the relatively small  sizes of the donations, Duncan  said, "Financially, it's not that  meaningful but symbolically it  sets a bit of an example."  Regarding the abuses of perks  and privileges, Duncan and the  Reform Party are vowing to stay  away from traditional Parliament  Hill perks such as use of the Par  liamentary tailor shop, picture  framing, haircuts, second language lessons for spouses and  staff members, gymnasium, massage and room services,  shoeshints, beauty salon, credit  charging privileges and liquor  store accounts.  In addition, former MPs under  the age of 60 currently collecting  pensions will be targeted by the  Reform Party, Duncan said.  "Reformers expect all past  MPs currently receiving MP pension benefits at age less than 60  to be discontinued.

Meanwhile, more free trade  means fish processing jobs are  being lost to the US.  "It would be nice if there  were more people in parliament  standing up for Canadians," he  comments. "It's very frustrating  for us."  There are, however, differing  opinions on Ul within the fishing community.  While many local fishermen  collect UI in the off-season,  some,  like  Ron  Malcolm,  believe changes are necesaty.  "A lot of people are on it in  the fishing business that probably shouldn't be," says Malcolm. "It's not meant to be an  income supplement."  "A lot of people don't like to  see our industry treated as a  welfare industry," he says.  But at the same time, "there  should be some kind of standards of living that people in  Canada could expect to have."  At this time last year, 7.1 per  cent of just over 1600 unemployment claims on the Coast  came from the fishing industry,  while 7.7 per cent came from  logging.  On average, fishermen were  paid $408 per week while on  Ul, (maximum rate is $425),  while loggers were paid $282.  Murray Cantelon, business  agent for the local IWA, says if  current trends towards shorter  work seasons in the forest  industry continue, "you're going  to have a lot of workers dependent on UI."  And while "this isn't a trend  we're particularly happy about,"  he says, making Ul more difficult for loggers to collect would  have serious repurcussions.  Cantelon adds he'd rather see  premiums go up than drastic  cuts to social spending. If people can't collect Ul, the burden  will only be shifted to the wel  fare system, he comments.  "By putting people out of  work you are not going to see a  reduction in the deficit, unless  you have people starving in the  street."  UI also provides retraining  for workers along with benefits,  he says: "There's a lot of good  things attached to Ul."  For now, he says workers  aren't overly worried: "The  Reform party isn't in power. If  it was we'd take it a lot more  seriously."  Meanwhile, Duncan comments, "We're not the only ones  who are talking about this. The  government's talking about it as  well."  Seasonsn   _.

Joel Fretwell and Bryce Mamchur, both  19, "succumbed to the injuries they sustained," a Port Mann RCMP detachment  spokesman said.  A 24-year-old New Westminster woman,  Kelly Koski and her four-month-old son.  Cole Holloway, were also killed in the accident.  RCMP reported that a 1989 Ford Probe  with Mamchur, Fretwell and a third passenger, 24-year-old James Fretwell, inside  was travelling at high speeds in the north  bound lane of the Pattullo Bridge (King  George Highway) at around 11:30 am when  the driver lost control and crossed the centre  line into the south bound lane.  The Probe collided head on with an '85  Hyundai Pony driven by Koski, then an '88  Chevrolet following the Hyundai slammed  in from behind.  Koski was pronounced dead at the scene  and the four-month-old baby was pronounced dead at the Royal Columbian Hospital (RCH).  Another passenger, five-year-old Codie  Koski is in stable condition at the RCH.

Mountain Grove Development, a ten housing unit project  to be located on a L-shaped  piece of property on Shaw Road,  applied for a rezoning application Nov. 4 to have the approximate one acre lot changed from  R-l (single family residential) to  an RM-1 (multi family residenlial).  In her recommendations to  council, Stratis asked council to  consider amending Zoning  Bylaw SSS by including a definition of "townhouses" and to  amend the definition section of  the bylaw "to delete the definition of 'attached housing unit,'  as there is no zone which provides for this defined use, and  the term 'townhouses' is a more  specific reference."  Finally, Stratis recommended  that before council passes ihe  second reading of the application, the applicants must make  revisions to the project site plan,  as specified by Stratis. Then,  once the design issue meets  town standards and a second  reading is made, a public hearing will take place.  In her requests to the developer, Stratis has asked they  make larger setbacks along their  property line and "identify more  substantial landscaping adjacent  to these boundaries."  Among other issues Stratis  said must be resolved before  council should consider a second  reading is sideyard setbacks,  stacked parking spaces, driveway access to Shaw Road, the  size of the rear patios (on seven  units) is too small according to  the town's Official Community  Plan, the siting of a single family home planned for the project  is "very much below typical setback standards for single family  homes" and should be eliminated fiom the project and finally,  some design aspects need  addressing on the plans.  During the Dec. 14 commit-  tee-of-the-whole meeting, developer Randy Mitchell addressed  council and informed them "we  don't have any problems with  the changes she (Stratis) wants  made."  Aside from the changes  Stratis wants making, "the project basically conforms to the  OCP," she said, adding, "Then  land use is something I support.  The proposal basically meets the  parameters of RM-1 zoning."  After a query from Mayor  Eric Small on whether or not the  development will be "strata title  or rental units" and Mitchell's  reply of "Strata," council unanimously agreed to Stratis' recommendations and passed the first  reading.  from ethnic to elegant  Let our staff help you        '������  create your own jewelery! '���*.,  Best selection of beads  on the Sunshine Coast.  Mon.Set. 104:30,  5729 Cowrie St., Sechell  ms-mm  um  - [extras] Coast News, December 20, 1993  news  Unwelcome Sechelt record established during storm  by Ian Cobb  It's not really the kind of  record they want to take too  many runs at.  The Sechelt Volunteer Fire  Department (SVFD) established  a record for the number of calls  responded to in a day, Dec. 9,  during a gale force storm that  battered the Sunshine Coast.  Every one of the 30 member  volunteer force took part in  responding to 10 calls from 3  pm until 1:30 am.  "The most we ever had  before that was four in one day,"  said SVFD chief Bill Hicks,  With the 10 calls, the department is also going to set a  record of the most calls responded to in one year at 131 to date.  "And we're heading into a busy  time of the year," Hicks said,  explaining he expects some calls  out to fight back chimney fires.  Though the department  didn't have to battle any blazes  during the Dec. 9 storm, they  were constantly exposed to the  high winds and potential dangers inherent with that.  "It was incredible," Hicks  said of the pre-winter storm.  "It just reaffirms my suspicions that if it was IS degrees  cooler and with snow, we would  have had to implement our disaster plan. Can you imagine if it  was three inches of snow instead  of three inches of rain?"  The storm also helped the  Storm weather,  high winds and  high tides lifted  two boats off  Lisa  Blackwetl's  waterfront,  joined them  with a flotilla or  drifting logs  and promptly  smashed them.  Both boats,  neither of them  owned by  Blackwell, were  found down the  beach. The  canoe was  taken home but  a rowboat  which suffered  far worst  damage  disappeared.  Joel Johnstone  photo  department gain some valuable  experience, the fire chief noted.  "It was good practice in  instant command and instant  management." he said.  To keep on top of all the  calls, ranging from requests for  assistance from BC Hydro with  traffic control to re-securing  homes after trees crashed down  on them, Hicks said he established a command post at his  home and directed things from  there.  To help combat the number  of calls of trees knocking lines  down, of trees and bits of trees  hanging on power lines and an  estimated 17 major circuits  knocked out - BC Hydro had to  bring five extra crews in from  the Lower Mainland to help out  the beleaguered two crews that  cover the entire Sunshine Coast  Hydro kept it's Field Road  office open from the time the  storm hit until Sunday evening  to help with the deluge of calls  from angered, confused and  frightened residents and to coordinate the emergency crews.  "Everything was back on as  of Sunday night, with pockets  out here and there," hydro acting  manager Les Chustkoff, adding,  "All the major circuits were  back up as of Saturday."  The areas that were hardest  hit during the storm, Garden  Bay, Pender Harbour, Egmont  and Sechelt are all areas that  haven't been a part of BC  Hydro's trimming program.  "There were virtually no outages in the Port Mellon/Gibsons  area where an aggressive tree  trimming program has been  done."  Chutskoff said the trimming  program will continue "up the  coast"  Sechelt fireman and Sunshine  Coast Emergency Program  Coordinator Chris Caldwell said  Hydro "couldn't keep up with  their limited resources," but  praised the crews and volunteer  firefighters for their bravery.  "They all did their jobs ���  never fast enough to suit those  affected - but they're out there  in those conditions all the time,  exposed to these risks. There's a  lot of people out there providing  a service in dangerous circumstances and I don't think they  get enough credit for that."  The monetary cost of the  storm has yet to be calculated.  Silence ordered in Sechelt sexual assault case  by Darah Hansen and Jane Seyd  Somewhere in Sechelt December 11 a sexual assault is alleged to have happened.  On Tuesday afternoon, an unidentified person charged with the alleged crime was  brought from custody to appear before a  provincial court judge for a bail hearing.  As it stands now, these are the only facts  the Coast News is legally permitted to report.  Most other facts in the case - including the  name of the accused, circumstances surrounding the bail hearing or whether the accused  remains in custody - are covered by a wide-  ranging ban on publication and on public disclosure issued by Judge Shirley Giroday.  gibsons council notes  The public was also barred from the court  room during Tuesday's hearing, which was  also not listed on the public court docket.  The Coast News, which learned about the  incident through a phone tip, is protesting the  publication ban and has contacted its lawyer.  Crown council Kevin Blair said Thursday  in a telephone conference call, he asked for  the ban in order to protect the interest of witnesses, which he had not yet interviewed.  Blair commented further in cases alleging  sexual assault the victim is usually not interested in having the incident made public.  He refused to comment on whether bail has  been set for the accused during Tuesday's  appearance; whether a plea has been entered;  whether a trial has been set; or whether the  Crown is treating the case as a summary conviction or indictable offence.  Lawyer for the defence, Greg Cranston,  relayed through his secretary he wouldn't  comment on the ban and would "take action"  if the Coast News wrote about the case.  David Sutherland, a Vancouver lawyer  who often represents community newspapers  on legal issues, said while publication bans to  protect the name of victims in sexual assault  cases are relatively common, the wide-ranging  nature of this particular ban is very rare "and,  with respect, questionable."  Gibsons council unanimously carried an  amended third reading of Building and Plumbing Bylaw No. 700, Dec. 7.  The previous third reading of the bylaw,  which stipulates the mandatory installation of  sprinklers in new and renovated commercial  buildings, was rescinded because of concerns  aired by the Sunshine Coast School District  that the bylaw could harm their efforts on the  proposed $2-million expansion of Elphinstone  Secondary School by adding in extra costs  they couldn't shoulder and from council members, concerned that not enough thought or  work had gone into the preperation of the  bylaw amendment.  After being asked by council to review the  issues raised by the concerned parties, the  West Howe Sound Fire Protection Committee  came out in support of sprinklers being  mandatory in all buildings, except single family dwellings.  In his report to council, town administrator  Dann Legg noted that the WHSFPC reviewed  the school district's concerns and "recognized  the difficulty facing organizations with long  lead times for financing of buildings by deferring the effective date of the sprinkler requirement until Feb. 1,1994."  Pool "still January 1994"  The Gibsons Swimming Pool is still scheduled to open in the new year.  Aquatic manager Wendy Gilbertson presented a report to Gibsons town council during  a committee-of-the-whole meeting Dec. 14  outlining construction expenditures and  informing them the facilities re-opening is  "still January 1994."  Closed because of a series of problems dating back to July '92, the pool has been re-fitted with a new, longer tank and hot tub, new  decking and upgraded changing rooms.  The pool closed for an original $425,000  renovations project but because of damages  incured during its original closure, the tab has  climbed to about $833,000.  The majority of the project has been paid  for by the town of Gibsons ($303,000), as well  as another $125,000 from capitol reserves and  a GO BC Grant.  Sixty five per cent of the additional costs  will be covered by insurance.  >;;���;>���/���-  jp^^HHHv  m\v��&          WS^^^WmSkCair-  *"^.V>;;W  t.

Young offenders can be sent  to a correctional institute, said  Giroday, but as the law now  stands, children under 12 cannot  be put in jail in Canada. Rules  are different in each country, she  told students.  She added, however, that jail  is supposed to be used only as a  last resort, especially in the case  of juveniles,  "We do see the same people  coming back and back and  back," she said, but at the same  time, "..we have to give them  eveiy consideration and hope  maturity sets in."  "In the majority of cases of  young people who are in fairly  serious trouble, drugs and alcohol play a part," said Giroday.  "And in almost 100 per cent  of cases there's some kind of  family disturbance."  As part of the 'essons on the  justice system, police have come  to the classroom to talk to students about their work, said  McBeath. Students have also  listened to family of crime victims talk about the impact on  their lives, and have followed  court stories in the newspapers.  Following their morning in  the court, some students said  they were surprised at what they  had seen.  "1 thought (the courtroom)  would be a lot bigger," said one  student.  Another was surprised there  was no jury.  "I thought there would be  more jail (sentences)," said  another boy.  Students also agreed Sechelt  court was less dramatic than the  courtroom scenes they're used to  watching on TV.  Said one girl, "It wasn't really exciting."

Hwy 101, Gibsons      886-7133 Coast News, December 20, 1993  Speaking out on  the issue of court  ordered silence  This week, in Sechelt provincial court, there's a case  going on that the media and tlie public are not allowed to  know about.  In this particular case, not only are a number of facts not  allowed to be published in this paper but even details which  would allow us to follow the case through the court system  can't be disclosed to our reporters by the courts.  Unfortunately, these kinds of bans aren't that unusual in  many communities.  For instance, you might have already heard about a number of high profile court cases across the country in which  publication bans are being fought.  Not too long ago, newspapers in Vancouver went to court  in order to report on legal proceedings against financier  Robert Friedland, who had been linked to a collapsed mining operation.  Recently, the most famous publication ban has been that  of the Karla Teale case in Ontario where the rights of freedom of information versus the rights of the court are being  tested almost daily.  On the side of the publication ban, people have argued  the media wants the often sensationalized information from  these cases simply to sell more newspapers. But, make no  mistake about it, there is a principle at stake.  If the doors are closed once, there is an increasing chance  they will be closed again and again, whittling away each  time the safeguards of our basic rights and freedoms.  "In the darkness of secrecy, sinister interest and evil in  every shape have full swing," said British philosopher  Jeremy Bentham. "Only in proportion as publicity has place  can any of the checks applicable to judicial injustice operate. Where there is no publicity, there is no justice."  Usually the legal justification given for a publication ban  is that without it, tlie accused's right to fair trial may be  jeopardized. Further reasoning given is to protect the rights  of the victim.  Both are valid arguments.  But all too often, these bans are requested by lawyers  because their clients don't want the publicity.  It's easy to understand why someone accused of a serious  crime wouldn't want a lot of publicity about it. Nevertheless, it is public information.  Barring the public from the court room is supposed to be  the exception rather than the rule and there have to be some  solid reasons for it.  Reasons that the accused or even tlie alleged victim don't  feel particularly comfortable about it aire not good enough.  We're not talking about publishing the name of victims  here but something far more basic. We're talking about  basic rights and freedoms.  If it's a serious enough allegation to get before the courts  in the first place, the public has a legitimate right to know  about it.  Anonymous court proceedings which happen behind  closed doors go on in countries mn by dictators; they are  meant to be the grave exception here.  It's disturbing that we had to find out almost by accident  that an offence this serious is alleged to have happened in  our community, while all official channels were closed to  us.  The public has a right to know.  Flames took  everything  As live aboards ourselves on  our boat at Gibsons Marina, we  know too well the sound of running on the dock in the middle  of the night, spells trouble.  As was Saturday night for  our well known and admired  neighbours, lohn and Leslie  Dethridge, with their two children Sara and Kayla. It was  midnight, the sounds of quick  pounding feet and the smashing  of glass from fire extinguisher  casings rang the alarm of fire.  Quickly I dressed and made  my way down the icy dock  towards the smoke, only to the  horror of seeing the big yacht,  home of John and his family at  its end.  Hadn't this family been  through enough, 1 thought. John  struggling with a severe back  injury and Leslie working with  the post office, doing all she  could to make ends meet. Both  working so hard, always, for  their two little girls.  They had just moved back  onto their boat in October after  doing all they could in their  spare time to renovate the boat  home in time for Christmas.  There had sat all the Christmas  presents, the tiny tree the girls  had decorated together, the  brightly coloured lights hung on  the masts, all the memories Ihe  photo albums held of their wedding day, the baby pictures,  their hard times and the good,  all irreplacable, gone in devastation.  I stood off to the side, as the  firemen and their equipment  filled the smoking gallant giant  with salt water. A tear ran down  my cheek as I watched the  brightly decorated mast of lights  go out, as its brave captain tried  desperately to save her.  Shock and despair had overcome him along with shear  exhaustion, though he could  only thank the god above that  Leslie and the children had been  visiting with grandma for the  weekend.  Now this family sits empty,  engulfed in sadness as to how  they will explain to the children  why Santa Claus can't come this  year an why they don't have  their beds anymore.  If ever there was a time in  your heart, where you could  give to help someone, where it  would mean so much, this  would be the time, to give to  this wonderful family.  They need the community's  help, please. Any cash donations  would be greatly appreciated  and received at Bank of Montreal, Gibsons.  SUZANNE & RAY JANKO  Gibsons  Receveur slamming  Let me see if 1 have understood Mr. (Ms.7) Receveur's  justification of the vandalism of  Chatelech Secondary:  a) the vandalism is the  school's fault for allowing the  business community to donate  computers and use them as a tax  writeoff;  b) using computers stifles  students' creativity and they  must deface school property to  express their frustration;  c) spray paint is just a  method of creative expression,  like calligraphy or Chinese  brush painting;  Assuming I have understood  him (her?) correctly, the following counter arguments occur to  me:  a) computers are a fact of life  in the 1990s, and the more  exposure to them our students  have, the better.  b) our schools and our business community's major problem is lack of understanding and  patience with each other.

KAREN PHILLIPS  Sechdt  Old fashioned  Christmas  Am I just old-fashioned in  wanting to celebrate the Twelve  Days of Christmas?  When carols and pressure for  shopping start before  Hallowe'en, no wonder most  folk grow weary long before the  25th of December, and hope it  will soon be over.  The dating of Christmas signifies the lengthening days after  the winter solstice - yet most of  our celebrating is in the lengthening darkness before the solstice.  If earthly royalty was to visit  the Sunshine Coast, surely we  would prepare - and then celebrate - the coming in the days  after, not before.  Whatever meaning Christmas  has for us, surely it makes better  sense to save some of our celebrating for the days after.  Come, mount my soap-box  with me...  MARY PELLATT  Sechdt  Paying one's respects, belatedly to Santa Claus  I'm sorry I have neglected you the past 43  years. In my defence, I was one of your true  believers longer than most Until I was near to 12.  What's that you say? Well, yes, I did fake it for  the last seven. Matter of fact it was when my five-  year-old sister proclaimed her loss of faith that I,  too, acknowledged that mine was a faith of convenience.  What's a faith of convenience? A faith I proclaimed, or rather chose not to denounce, because I  had figures if I believed in you, or led people to  believe I did, I would get more presents. It seemed  to work till the honest five-year-old spoke up.  Yes, I suppose it is a sorry tale of selfish cynicism.  No, it is not at all in keeping with the spirit of  loving kindness that you represent and which is  celebrated this spiritual season.  But listen, Santa, lots of people do things at this  spiritual season motivated by selfishness and a  hope for gain.  You're right. That doesn't make it any better  and I did probably err in that direction earlier than  most. It seemed like a good idea at the time and  seemed to woik for a while.  What's that? The same could be said for most  of the man-made catastrophes in history? I suppose  you are right  What brings me knocking at your door now?  Well, that's a hard one, Santa. I suppose it is  musings  because since I lost my faith in you somewhere  between five and 12...  You're right, it was more like between three  and four. I was a cunning and greedy hypocrite for  longer than admitted.  But listen, Santa, I was a true believer once.  Even as old as four, I think. I remember a wooden  rail locomotive I got one Christinas. We were living on Castle Street in Mauchline at the time; my  mother and father were working in something they  called a bomb factory; my brother was in the coal  mines and my big sister was being a waitress at a  fancy restaurant in Ayr until she was old enough to  join the army.  There were a lot of people joining the army,  then. In fact there was a whole camp of a<\merican  soldiers just across Castle Street from our house  and when my mother took me shopping sometimes  we'd see what she called convoys of great big  black and green and grey trucks go by.  John burnside  "That's the army," she'd say.  I never liked those trucks much. Seemed scarry  to me, though I didn't know why. The soldiers  across the street were really friendly when I saw  them, but I never liked the big army tracks.  I don't know why my sister joined the army,  whether she liked the uniform or liked the soldiers.  My mother and father thought she should be going  io school instead of the army but she didn't listen.  Anyway, I didn't care for army tracks but I sure  liked the wooden locomotive I got at Christinas  time on Castle Street It had big round wheels and  was big enough so you could sit on it and I loved  it  I knew you had a hand in it and next to my  mother and father and, maybe, my Uncle Wull  Dalziel, I thought you the most wonderful person  in tbe whole world.  I know you just don't hive all the time in the  world at this time of the year and that I haven't  answered your question yet.  What brings me back to your door after all these  years?  It's hard to say, really. I suppose I have seen so  much of the same greed and hypocrisy I showed  till my little sister blew the whistle on the game. I  have seen images of yourself turned to a marketing  device all over the world I am familiar with and  beyond.  Images of even you, Santa Claus, used by people to get things rather than to give things.  I've seen a lot of things, Santa, which have  gone from good and hopeful beginnings to something cynical and bad. I've heard and see people do  tings in the greal name of good ideas which were  just as selfish and hypocritical as I was when I pretended to believe in you.  Great big words I didn't know when I got my  wooden locomotive like politics, economics, religion and history, which is a kind of a catch-all of  the rest have proved full of greed and selfishness  and hypocrisy since I grew up and checked them  OUL  And yet there's a memory, Santa, of being four  and really believing the world was the immediate  kindness of my family and something just as kind  and world-wide which came to visit once a year.  I haven't found anything better since, Santa,  and maybe I never will. I guess I just came by to  pay my respects and to say Thank You.

Problem is that the real old  songs, the proper carols, are  there to be sung not talked about  and the other wide repertoire of  old songs, genuine folk songs  many eminently suitable to be  sung at Christmas (Mighty  Kichi-Manitou, possibly a  Huron song springs to mind)  provide a field that many are  well versed in but that I know  really very little about.  I did however once spend a  Christmas with, or largely in the  house of our foremost collector  of folk songs and that will have  to do. Helen Creighton had the  big old rambly family house on  the harbour water in Halifax, ar  more properly speaking Dartmouth across the way and in '41  the town being jammed with  servicemen of all sorts had  turned part of her upstairs into a  small suite as a bit of war effort.  A friend, Richard and his wife  Jerry became her first tenants  and another friend David and I  became very frequent visitors.  Miss Creighton as we called  her, we were all about 23 at the  time, had already become well  known for going about and digging out and sorting the old  songs from the wealth of them  in the Maritimes, but we from  the west, David in fact from  New Orleans, were jazz men  and I suppose found all this  harmless enough but maybe a  In a nutshell  bit quaint.  We were spending 1 think our  first Christmas away from home  and had been posted individually to this flying boat squadron  on the harbour in Dartmouth  and had almost immediately  become friends as could often  happen at the time, but we had  all gone through a pretty concentrated training period, and  we had all felt sure that at the  end of it we would go lo England, and here we all were slill  in misty moisty Nova Scotia and  with a bunch of the most old-  fashioned aircraft, as we thought  that could still possibly be  coaxed into the air.  The Stranraar was in fact an  odd looking boat. It was a  biplane, its long wings laced up  and down with all sorts of struts  and wires, which almost  obscured the fact that it had the  most elegant hull of perhaps any  flying boat before or since. But  it was slow of course and it  didn't make it up very high,  which meant that you were having to fly through all the weathers and it sat down very low in  the water.  This meant that taking off  involved a lot of spray and in  the winter this would freeze on  the windscreen and Halifax harbour was dotted with large  letters  stuart nutter  looming freighters as convoys  assembled and the surface of the  water could have a lot of deadheads and various debris sloshing in it and this meant that at  the start of each patrol the hatch  would have to be open and the  navigator would stand with his  head out and gesture to the pilot  right and left and the spray  would come flying in and just  about everyone would start out  on these, we thought, tedious  patrols pretty well soaked to the  skin.  All this lo give an idea of the  general mood when David and I  would get around to Dick and  Jerry's at Miss Creighton's  house several times a week as  Christmas approached. In the  usual way we never saw anything of Miss Creighton but  there came a night or early  morning when she came upon  us playing a game called 'Good  Night Old Man.'  Dickie had been to RMC and  had I suppose introduced this  rather military academy game to  us and given the general mood it  was 1 guess some way of  expressing frustrations. What  you did was stand in a triangle  and turn to the man on your  right and smile and slap him on  the face and say good night old  man. He would turn to the man  Let's take another  look  I wish to comment on the  statement by Mr. Jim McDowell  that the monument lo Capl.  George Vancouver's visil to  these waters "has been misplaced." This requires confirmation.  When the bicentenary date of  the visit approached, Mr.  Edward John Atlee, Sr. of Gibsons conceived and initiated the  idea. After extensive research,  including consultation with  Major Matthews at Vancouver  Archives, he came to the conclusion that the expedition likely camped overnight near the  mouth of Chaster Creek. He  then enlisted the aid of several  residents of Gower Point, and,  although there was not historical  confirmation for this scenario  either, on reflection, I became  converted to it.  The reasons I believe that I  can reconstruct Vancouver's  observations and reactions in  this matter are as follows: I have  been fortunate to climb peaks on  both sides of Howe Sound. The  observations from these vantage  points prepared me for subsequent daily commuter crossings,  including over twelve hundred  returns to Gibsons Harbour. The  lasting impression from these  multiple approaches is that of a  long shallow apron spreading on  the south side of Ml. Elphinstone.  This feature assures me that  all-weather streams and comparably level terrain exist along  that shore. This "feel" was  sharpened on long canoe-camping journeys. Captain Vancouver surely acquired and developed that "feel." Finally, if they  were caught inside the Sound by  nightfall, I believe it would be  recorded.  The motive for this exercise  was to instill pride in our heritage. To "correct" it, after the  fact, and without real evidence,  would be a mistake.  E. BURRITT  Gower Point  Amnesty says  thanks  Many thanks to the Sunshine  Coast residents who participated  in the Write-a-thon at Trail Bay  mall on Human Rights Day,  Dec. 10.  Who knows whal your  efforts may have accomplished?  Perhaps that card or letter you  sent may mean improved prison  conditions for a Prisoner of  Conscience, or possibly, a safer  life for someone who might  become another of the ..'disappeared.' ,n ,,;,  Thank you. also to the members and supporters who looked  after the tables: Ruth Houie,  Margery Passmore, Jana Vavrik,  Doreen Bartley, Althea Rowe,  Iris Griffith, Ann Miles, Rob  Bourque, Stuart Young and Jan  DeGrass.  There were 108 letters and  cards completed; close to 40 letters and the balance greeting  cards. The letters, handwritten,  were to various government  and/or military leaders about  disappearances and political  killings. The cards were  addressed directly to prisoners.  Il is our hope they will have  helped improve the present  appalling human rights abuses  in the world.  SHIRLEY HALL, Chair  Amnesty International Group  160  On the Clayoquot  fund  The organizers of the Sunshine Coast Clayoquot Sound  Defense Fund would like to  lhank everyone who has contributed to the fund thus far. The  current total is $1,060 raised in  a few short weeks to show support for those arrested at the  blockade at Clayoquot Sound.  So far, of the 20 arrestees on  the Sunshine Coast only one has  received a $500 fine and the rest  of those already sentenced have  been given probation and community service hours to perform. There are slill a number of  SC arrestees who have yet to  come to trial.  None of Ihe fund has been  paid out as yet as we are wailing  to see what the final outcomes  will be. On top of contributing  to fines we would also like to  use some of the fund to help  with ferry fares. If any of the  arrestees are not in need of  financial assistance and if we  end up with any money after all  is settled then the fund will be  kept alive to assist the Friends  of Care and the Tetrahedron  Alliance (the SC's own old  growth protection organizations).  Contributions to the fund can  be made at the SC Credit Union  in Gibsons.  PAT RIDGWAY  SC Clayoquot  Sound Defence Fund  Keeping a light  perspective  Re: Nancy Moote's article  Deo. .6 ''Hope dims for Christmas lights in Sechelt"  Did I get this right - $10,000  for wreaths on light posts? From  the USA? Thank goodness it  was "nixed." What about keeping the money in this community? I'll bet there are many local  artists/craftspeople who would  love the job. Or school children,  Scouts, Guides or other groups  who would happily do it for  one-tenth of that figure.  Our little town looks lovely  with its revitalized downtown,  the marvellous lighting at Rockwood Lodge, the tree Art Lew  has said will be lit at the Cenotaph and virtually every store is  festively decorated as well.  Patrick Hobbs is quoted as  saying, "We're all really, really  upset about it. Not only do we  suffer, bul every person going  through Sechelt at the time the  lights would have been up also  suffers." Well, Patrick, I'm a  Sechelt taxpayer and I am not  upset about the lights or wreaths  not being purchased. I'd have  been upset if they had been.  And no one will "suffer"  because of fewer lights or  wreaths - in less than a month  they will all be put away and  forgotten anyway. If you want  lo understand suffering, watch  Ihe national news sometimes, it  serves to put our little problems  into perspective.  I'm not a grinch, I love  Chrislmas, but not Ihe excesses  we are often guilty of. I'd like lo  go on record as preferring my  tax money - that $10,000 - be  put into a fund for the proposed  new recreational centre. Or the  food bank, that would be much  closer to the real spirit of Christmas.  MARGARET M. WEBB  Sechelt  Planting applause  I believe Sechelt Lumber aka  Gibsons Lumber should be  highly commended for the good  work recently completed in  planting a row of evergreen  trees facing Inlet Avenue across  the road from dental clinic.  It has made a large difference  and improvement to the street  especially those using "shanks  mare" to go to Capilano College  or Sunshine Coast Community  Service Society Office.  W.M.Wilson  Sechelt  on his right and so on. The slaps  would gel harder, Ihe smiles  become fixed grins and maybe  people would start staggering  back from Ihe triangle. Silly, of  course, yes?  We didn't do this in Jerry's  suite but sometimes at the front  door in Miss Creighton's bug  hallway. This had a wide staircase curving up from it, open at  the top wilh a long balustrade  along the hall and one early  morning Miss Creighton heard  something and came out and  looked down on this unexplain-  ablc scene.  Shc suggested lhat it was  time everyone wenl to bed and  we did, but the next day she  came round and offered us her  living room if we wanted to  have friends in for a Christmas  parly We darted each other little looks, wondering who we  knew who would be suitable for  Miss Creighton, bul we said that  she must come and asked her if  she knew anyone who could  sing. She smiled. She had the  longest string of people who  could sing in that whole half of  the country.  There was a free (hers), there  were all sorts of goodies (mostly  hers), there were some jolly but  not too jolly airmen, and there  was a ragged but bonnehomour  group of oldtimers from the  countryside who were the folk  singers. We sang carols, we  sang watered down versions of  our mess songs; and then they,  in a beguiling way we had never  heard before sang us the real old  songs. At the end Miss  Creighton had become Helen,  and my raw notions of folk  music were changed forever.

SECHELT ��� 885-bflf.H  wm r  Reasons for increased Coast  crime defy easy explanation  by Ian Cobb  The crime rate is rising in the  Gibsons area - as RCMP statistics clearly point out - yet there's  no real cause for alarm says a  Simon Fraser University Criminology professor.  Even though the number of  offences committed against individuals (murder, assaults, abductions) increased in the Gibsons  area by SS per cent from Nov. 92  to Nov. 93 and total Criminal  Code offences are up 18 per  cenl, the rise can be attributable  to "zillions" of things, said Dr.  Paul Brantingham.  There are numerous theories  as to why crime rates are rising  in Canada, B.C. and the Sunshine Coast but "none that gives  an easy handle on it," Brantingham said.  However, there are some  standard indicators that could  point to Gibsons and the Sunshine Coast's rising crime rate.  "When you have a lot more  people moving in, you have a lot  more crime," Brantingham  noted.  "Ordinarily, when you have a  big growth surge on, there's  more construction, new people  and more bars and then you get a  multiplication of the opportunity  for crime."  In addition, Brantingham  said, "The kind of people you  have move in makes a big difference."  "When you have a lot  more people moving  in, you have a tot  more crime'  ���Paul Hranlingham  If an area that's experiencing  rapid growth has middle-aged,  middle-class people moving in,  "they tend to slay home a lot  more and don't drink as much  and when they're involved in  crime, they tend to complain a  lot more."  "If you're 22 and get slugged  in the mouth (at a bar), you're  less likely to complain to the  cops than you would if you are  50."  Another factor surrounding  the middle-aged, middle-class  theory is they are victimized by  crime less than other sociological  classes.  "At the same token, they put  up with a lot less," Brantingham  said.  The emergence of the baby  boomers into middle-age is  another reason for rising crime���  in that more crimes are not necessarily being committed but the  baby boomers, being "more  articulate and experienced" than  past generations, are less tolerant  of crime and call Ihe police more  often.  According to Municipal and  Regional District Eslimates, the  most populous age demographic  on the Sunshine Coast is the 40-  44 year-old category, with 35-39  second and 30-34 third.  A possible reason for the rise  in property damage crime on the  Sunshine Coast, such as the 28  per cent increase in the Gibsons  area for property damage over  $1,000, is "people who have  been victimized in the past are  saying 'I'm fed up' and calling  the police" and others are calling  for the first time while, with the  roughly 25 per cent growth rate  on the Coast, there are more people to call up all the time.  Flat rate garbage collection  fee eyed by Gibsons council  by Ian Cobb  Gibsons council has unanimously agreed to "support the  concept" of flat rate residential  garbage collection fees for 1994,  as recommended by the Sunshine Coast Regional District  and town administrator Dan  Legg.  During council's inaugral  meeting Dec. 7, they heard a  report compiled by Legg on the  pros and cons of a flat rate  garbage collection service as  opposed to the current assessment-based fees.  Among the advantages listed  by Legg are equity and an incentive to reduce solid waste.  "The current assessment  based system results in many  property owners, including those  with vacant land and multi-family, commercial and industrial  Roast Turkey Dinner  Dec. 23rd & 24th, evenings  Full course dinner incl. tea or coffee  only $6,95  We will be closed Dec. 25th - 28th  We re-open on Dec. 29th.  .)\  GOLDEN C  RE S TA U RA  885-2511  BROOKS & MILLER  FLOOR COVERINGS  will be  CLOSED AT NOON DEC. 24  We will  REOPEN TUESDAY, JAN. 4, 1994  We wish you all a  Happy Holiday and the  Very Best in the New Year!  -The Staff & Brassy the Cat  5707 Cowrie St.  Sechelt  885-2923  properties paying for a service  they do not receive," Legg  repotted.  Also, such property owners  must pay for their own garbage  collection service on top of that  extra tax, so a flat rate system  "would be more equitable than  the current assessment based  system."  The two disadvantages pointed out in the report are the financial impact on improved residential properties and administration costs, he noted.  People owning homes in the  lower price range would be hit  with a higher garbage collection  fee.  "The most significant cost  increase would be felt by  improved residential properties  with assessed values of  $100,000-150,000. These properties would bear an annual  increase in costs of approximately $36 to $22 based on the  1993 budget. This occurs  because the current assessment  based system provides the greatest subsidy to properties with  lower assessed values"  A flat rate fee would be factored by the amount of money  required by the municipality to  provide garbage collection, such  as Gibsons' 1993 budget of  $90,092 and divided by the  number of single family and  duplex dwelling units in the  town (1,410).  Therefore, the flat rate for  Gibsons would be $63.89. This  means a homeowner paying a  mortgage on a $100,000 home,  paying $28.20 based on the  assessment rate, would face a  significant increase. A homeowner with a $250,000 home  would pay $6.61 less a year.  In his summary, Legg said,  "A flat rate system appears lo be  superior to an assessment based  system. However, the shift in  financial burdon to improved  residential properties is significant."  After chewing on Legg's  report, mayor Eric Small stated  a move to a "user pay system is  a very tough step" especially for  the lower income home owners.

All of them were very interesting reading but there's only  space this week for just one. A  thank you to each of you young  authors. Here's the story from a  grade 6 student.  My name is Jackie. I live in  Gibsons, BC. I just had my fifth  birthday.  I really wanted to see Santa. I  always thought he knew what to  get me until my older sister  Andrea told me that's why you  go to the mall to see him. But  what does she know - she's only  16 years old.  I know, I'll ask my mom to  take me to the mall. The problem with that is my mom is in  California trying to get rid of  her stress. She's in the warm sun  and I'm stuck here with my  older sister Andrea. Andrea is a  snob usually. She hangs out all  the time with her friends at the  mall.  Ha-chool "Oh no, I'm getting  a cold. Now I can't go to the  mall to see Santa. Maybe if I  dress really, really warm,  Andrea will take me anyway."  I realize it is illegal to leave  children home alone and worrying. But just then my sister  comes home. I comment how  beautiful she looks. She gives  me that snobby look. "Whatta  you want, squirt?"  "Can you take me to the mall  to see Santa?" She says "Maybe  Beth Feldman and members of the Sunshine Coast Potters Guild offered Christmas shoppers  handmade wares at their annual Christmas Sale Dec. 11. Joel Johnstone photo  later." "But Andrea, the mall  will be closed." She says "No,  it's open to 5 pm. It's only 2 pm  now." "But Santa only stays for  an hour."  "Okay, okay," she says. "I  need help putting my shoes on."  "Oh, okay, okay," she says.  We get there just in time  because Santa had only one  more person he'd see before he  left. My sister must have felt  pretty generous because she let  me get my picture taken with  him.  I tell him I want a cat and a  dog and a rabbit, a hampster, a  pool and a hot tub and my mom.  When I get home my mom's  there. Now nobody can tell me  there's no such thing as Santa  Claus. First thing my mom says  is good to see you guys spending time together and getting  along so well.

Dentists sink teeth into recycling  by Jane Seyd  No, they don't take those  teeth you had to get pulled and  stick them into someone else's  dentures.  But dental recycling in  another form has hit the Coast.  And local dentists are hailing it  as a step towards less environment pollution.  Dec. 4, local dentists unanimously agreed to sign on to a  recycling service provided by a  Victoria-based company Tox-  igon.  The service involves collecting chemicals used in dental offices, such as developer  and fixer used in developing x-  rays, lead backings, alcohol-  baser/sterilizing solutions and  silver and mercury left over  from fillings, and either recycling or disposing of them in  an environmentally-friendly  manner.  In the case of alcohol-based  solutions, the chemicals are  refined and used as fuel source  in cement kilns.  Fixer is treated and returned  to dental offices while some  other fluids are disposed of after  going through licensed waste  water treatment facilities.  Needles, scalpels and other  "sharps" are taken away to be  sterilized and minced before  being disposed of.  Meanwhile, all of the more  ominous-sounding "bio-medical  The chemicals are  refined and used as  fuel source in  cement kilns.  waste" still goes to the hospital  to be incinerated.  Right now, dentists aren't  breaking any laws by washing  most chemical solutions down  the drain with lots of water.  But Lome Berman, one of  the local dentists behind the  program, says the new approach  is better.  Altogether Toxigon now  serves 83 dentists on Vancouver Island and the Lower Mainland.  The ten dentists in Gibsons  and Sechelt are the latest additions lo the client list.  Dentists receive pick-up of  chemicals once every two  months for a fee of about $65.

It is suddenly  close upon us and the smell of  Christmas baking fills our  kitchens. It reaches throughout  the house to the farthest corners  where sounds of paper rustling  and cries of "who took the  scotch tape" and "where did all  thejabels go" signal gift-wrapping. Gift-wrapping has been  raised to an art form by many  people but 1 confess that I am  definitely paper and bow challenged.  I solved my inability to make  a proper bow this year though.  Last January in the after-season  sales I bought yards of Christmas cloth and for days sewed  bags of every size. No tape lo  find, no ribbons to tie, just stuff  the present in and pull the draw  string tight. Even I can master  that, although I still haven't  come up with a perfect solution  for labels on these bags.  I am getting all sentimental  about a pet for Christmas, we've  been without a dog for three  years now since our last old and  beloved beast went to dog heaven. But it's a good warning to  all of us to look at such a gift in  the hard light of reality and long  golden lifelines  before we go and see the possible new pet. Once seen and  held, it's nearly impossible to  walk away. Becoming a pet  owner is a big decision and long  term commitment. However, if  you're really prepared and really-  sure, the SPCA may have just  what Santa ordered for your  Christmas. I waver between  fond recollections of the wagging tail, absolute love and companionship a dog brings and the  not so pleasant memories of  muddy paws, fleas and accidents on the carpet. It's much  like deciding to become a parent. If you really think it  through you may never take the  risk. A leap of faith is definitely  required.  Take note that the -Arts Centre is closed for the holiday season and will re-open at its regular hours on Jan. 19. Watch for  holiday hours at the library, they  are posted on the door. As well,  the thrift shop is closed until  Jan. 4. A thank you to all the  volunteers who make these  community resources available  to us. A Christmas break is  well-deserved.  Drive safely everyone, the  RCMP intend to make sure that  we do with a series of roadblocks and checks during this  holiday.

My articles on Dec. 6 dealt in part with  the need to develop a Community Housing  Policy. On Nov. 5, Dave Kapinsky ad I..B.  Ostry, both directors of the Sunshine Coast  Seniors Housing, attended a conference of  the BC Non-Profit Housing Assoc, in Richmond. One of the subjects was 'Why are  housing policies needed at the community  level?'  The need is growing as more people  move to BC. The demand fat-all types of  housing is increasing, both in t|e urban centres and in many of the smaller communities.  In some of the higher growth communities,  dwellings that are affordable affects almost  every segment of the population and influences decisions of whether people can continue to live in the community of their  choice.  Seniors often cannot find appropriate  accommodation in their lifelong neighbourhoods. Many young families are unable to  afford a starter home.  In many communities rental housing is  scarce and expensive. Our community is no  exception with rents being seen at $1,000 per  month for a couple with three children.  I personally know of people who are  homeless on the Coast. People with mental  and or physical disabilities can face long  waiting periods to get into special needs  housing. Housing in our area, that is appro  priate and affordable is an issue that affects  many people.  the roles are changing as the public policy is shifting as a result of the federal government's withdrawal from housing programs and the financial constraints faced by  all levels of government.  The province has had to recognize the  growing need for housing and says that it is  committed to taking a leadership role to  increase affordable housing opportunities for  all of us in BC.  The province says that it recognizes that it  needs local governments to identify new,  local appropriate, cost-effective housing  policies and actions.  There will be additional columns on this  pressing problem in our community.  ^*\\VC*_.J__fc eV*\V &Ct&ZmmWqp'll��M9 <-****l# S  /^dlpTmm^  w%\_jpeotii&V  Last .Minute Shopping?

It is still a  mystery how he got there, but  the owners are convinced that  his rope was cut and that someone had taken him out there and  either dumped him or tried to  keep him and he got away, trying to find his way home.

Mary has lived on the Sunshine  Coast for some 50 years during  which she has made many  friends, all of whom will miss  being able to pop in to see her  right here in Sechelt.  She has given much to this  community, being, among other  things, one of those who along  with Canon Greene, formed the  Senior Citizen's Association and  was responsible for the formation of Greenecourt. It seems  sad that after giving so much,  Mary at the age of almost 91  finds that there is no suitable  local facility in which to spend  her final years.  Many of these older residents  are having to be shipped off to  the mainland away from friends,  indicating a great need for more  consideration being given to the  construction of more facilities to  meet the needs of the population  which was responsible for many  of the conveniences and lifestyle  enjoyed by all who live here.  On a more cheerful note.  This is the time of year when we  columnists have the opportunity  to send out our own greetings to  all our readers and to thank you  for your cooperation and  encouragement in providing  items of interest, especially  those of Halfmoon Bay.  PASTIMES  ��3-  aJ*  from  Lee&  Leigh at  Pastimes  5496 Trail Rd.,  Sechelt  885 9309  A Toy Store  by Jo-Anne Sheanh, 885-3629  It's not until we lose it that  we truly appreciate it, is it?  So can be said about our  electric power. Last week when  many of us struggled to cook,  keep warm and see with the aid  of candles and or gas lamps, did  we really realize how dependent  we are on our electricity.  Suddenly we were thrust  back to the days of our ancestors  who lived their entire lives without the benefit of powered lights  and heat, radios or TV entertainment. After a hard day's work  the family gathered together at  the evening meal discussing the  day's events and planning for  the morrow.  Oftimes, the father would  read to the family while the  mother and sisters would bide  their time mending and sewing  in the light of the kerosene  lamp.  Sons and brothers had their  obligations too, stoking the  fires, making sure the wood supply would last until morning and  preparing their tools for the next  day.  Sometimes I feel we are a  pampered lot; we have only to  turn on a switch and we have all  these luxuries.  When many of us were  young, there was no central  heat, save for a wood or coal  burning furnace that needed  stoking every few hours. How  often did we wake up to frost on  the windows, inside and have to  scrape them with your fingernails, to see what was happening  outside?  You poked your nose out of  the bedcovers and saw your  breath. When you retrieved the  milk from the front porch, the  cream was frozen and risen four  inches above the top of the bottle, that was cream. Just like an  ice cream cone. We dressed in  front of the stove, it was too  cold in the rest of the house.  Those were the days when  the kitchen was the focal point  of the house.  The living room was usually  reserved for company, kept neat  and tidy for the likes of the minister, doctor and any other visiting dignitary.  The kitchen was where you  entertained family, friends,  neighbours etc. - they were all  there for a hot cup of coffee on a  cold day or a cold drink on a hot  day. People made time, in those  days, tc take the time to know  one another - life was easier,  simpler and nicer.  Compliments  To the principal, staff, students and parents of Davis Bay  elementary school for the  delightful luncheon put on for  the people in the community on  Dec. 14. Well over 100 people  attended and were treated to  delicious sandwiches, goodies  and tea and coffee served by the  students.  Entertainment in the form of  songs and verse was provided  by members of the staff as well  as the students. The afternoon  was capped off by the sudden  appearance of Santa Claus - a  magnificently disguised Bill  LeNeve and his pixy elf Linda  Peet, who captured the imagination of the wee ones present.  Each child received a hearty  welcome and a candy cane from  the Christinas pair,  It was a wonderful tribute to  both the school and the community, which proves once again,  we are a community that cares  and shares.  This marks my 100th column  and the last one before Christmas.  It's not always easy to write  something earthshaking every  week, but I have to thank you  readers for the input that you  give me.  Without it, I would be hard-  pressed to get a column together  for 52 weeks.

When highway crews  bucked it into three foot lengths to roll away,  they revealed a hollow filled with bees.  Gene Silvey and Willy Dyck braved  stings to scoop out rich honeycomb. Others,  including a BC Hydro repair crew, gave the  bee-tilled sections a wide berth.  A neighbour phoned, knowing that my  family keeps bees. Brian and I buzzed on  over to take a look. Sure enough, they were  domestic bees; they may even have come  from a swarm out of my parents hive. We  hurried to fetch bee-handling equipment.  Puffs of smoke got them out of a fighting  mood. Then with gloves and veils Brian and  I gently worked to free the combs. Some  came out heavy with honey; all were festooned with bees. We carefully placed  combs and all in hive boxes.  Next day we carefully lifted the hive into  a truck, with two sections of log which still  contained bees. We put them all together  under shelter, but the cold killed 200 to 300  bees which stayed in the logs. Most of their  sisters are alive and ready to wait out the  winter in their snug new hive. We hope the  queen was rescued with them.  Danny Cummings' memorial service  drew old time Egmonsters from far and  wide, as well as new friends. He never  stopped making iriends. The family thanks  all those who came to give support.  Meanwhile Ella Cummings had burned  her arm on a gas lamp while the power was  out. By the day after the service, she was  persuaded to go to hospital.

"I had a friend, a good friend  in fact.... until the day it happened...an ambulance sat outside his door. They said to me  how the boy inside was found  unconscious on the floor, with a  face of white, and cold as a winter's night. I went to the hospital  to see him, not knowing  whether to yell at him or hug  him. I felt sorry for him, and as  I turned the comer of the hall, 1  noticed him standing there, oxygen fastened to him and using a  walker, to keep him from  falling. He was different. He  had no glow in his face, no  smile in his expression, and he  looked as dead as dead.... My  heart broke...I walked to the  ghostly figure standing  alone ...and gave him a  hug....and he started to cry. I  never knew him to cry, but at  that moment, in that hall, in that  hospital in the town where we  both grew up, I felt like I was  wanted, but I think he needed  me more.  PHSS's counterattack team  sponsored an essay/poem contest offering cash prizes in four  divisions in recognition of drag  and alcohol awareness week..  Tara Ansen took first place in  the 11/12 division.Vicki  Nieuwenhuis won first prize for  grade 8 students, and Rowan  McFayden-Hill took first prize  for grade seven students. As  well as cash prizes, the counterattack team awarded more than  20 t-shirts with the drug and  alcohol week log to 16 runners  up, four in each division.

They came in during the  night.  Residents of the quiet fishing  village of Garden Bay woke up  to the sounds of men shouting  from out on the water, the bay  itself thrashing and wild as if a  storm had broken loose just  there leaving all else calm.  By daybreak, curiosity  swelled with the vision of a  single black and white body,  monstrous in size, circling the  now roped-off harbour mouth.  The people stood in rings  around the make-shift pen and  watched the dark water slide off  the rounded, silken back as the  animal rose and sank among the  waves created by its own movement.  Reporting for the Vancouver  Sun, Max Wyman described the  event as "The triumphant conclusion to a three-day whale  hunt."  The residents of the community stood thrilled, slightly restless and only partially aware the  event that morning would spiral  their small town into temporary  fame.  "It was just so exciting,"  Pixie Daly, a long-time Coast  resident, remembers.  Like many people present,  Daly had rarely seen an orca  whale before - never this close  up - and she fought her way  through the crowds to watch it.  "It was massive," she says,  recalling her first impressions.  "But it made small, whimpering noises...just like a puppy. It  was so cute."  Outside the pen, Daly  remembers hearing other whales  clicking and whistling from off  at a careful distance.  By putting her ear to the  metal boat railing leading down  into the bay, she could hear their  eery, muted voices underwater.  "It was like crying," she says.  "I guess they must have been  talking to each other."  Over Ihe next year, 19 more  orca were captured and penned  in Garden Bay harbour.  The Vancouver Aquarium set  up a research station under the  direction of Dr. Murray Newman to study the whales.  Their captures drew international attention from the media,  scientists and political dignitaries alike and the crowds  poured in daily to watch the  aquarium's work - the sheer  size, strength and relative mystery of the orca proving an irresistible form of public entertainment.  - Meanwhile, the fishermen  responsible for the captures  were given the 'Captain Vancouver' award for creating the  most news that year in British  Columbia.

Joel Johnstone photo  something really great...something pretty famous," says  "Earl" (who spoke on the condition that his real name not be  used), a Garden Bay fisherman  who, along with two friends,  had rounded-up the whales with  their fishing boats.  On the phone          now, 25 years  later, Earl is surprised anyone  remembers what  happened in Garden Bay. But he's  pleased to retell  his role. "I feel  like I'm tooting  my own horn," he  says, in the low,  gravelly voice of  a man now into  his seventh  decade. ______  The fishermen  had hatched the plan after years  of watching the whales swim  near their fishing nets, competing for the fish, Earl says.  "We knew they had  sonar...we could hear them out  on the water making noises. Not  once did they ever get caught up  in the nets."  The fishermen also realized  there was money in the sale of  whales.  Of the 20 orca caught, 12  were sold to aquariums through  out North America, the rest  were released.  According to Earl, the fishermen received as much as  $19,000 for an orca sold to  Marineland, California, while  the Vancouver Aquarium paid  only $800 for their whale,       named "Hyak".  "I remember  "We made our      receiving a big bill  from income tax  living from hilling that year;. says  things and Earl. Dropping his  catching things  and taking  advantage of  everything in  those days'  -Earl  voice, his tone  sounding a note of  anger, Earl explains  why his real name  can't be used in this  story: he believes a  threat still exists for  the safety of his  family.  _____        Not everyone  was in favour of the  captures, he says.  Earl recalls the anonymous  "hate" phone calls he and his  family received back in 1968  after the first whales were  penned.  When pressed what the  phone messengers threatened,  he hesitates, then says: "How  would you like it if we put your  child in a cement cage?"  "We were pretty near to  getting police protection."  It's an attitude Earl says he  'Winter Solstice' a dramatic show  by Darah Hansen  With cafe lattes and herbal  tea gracing every table, the  Gumboot Garden cafe had the  feel of a 50s coffee house  Thursday night, something right  out of the 'beat generation' -  minus the smoke.  It was in this atmosphere an  appreciative group of spectators  gathered to watch Roberts Creek  actor Caitlin Hicks give a reading of her newest work "Stories  for a Winter Solstice".  Alone on the small corner  stage, Hicks read from a collection of original scripts, as well  as one written by her husband,  artist Gordon Halloran, with the  warmth and energy of a woman  in touch with the strong emotions surrounding the complexities of birth and death.  Giving birth, Hicks says,  makes up the strength, the  wholeness of the woman from  the naive, gentle character of  "Eva" to the disabled "Gertie".  "I remember lying here  thinking I should be worshipped  at this point," says a euphoric  Eva, after delivering her baby.  "Unless we honour birth,  how can we honour anything."  Infused throughout the performance is an anger emanating  from the injustices forced upon  a woman in society.  In one story, Hicks criticizes  the clinical, anonymous birthing  process undergone by many  women in hospital surroundings  and is openly favourable of natural homebirth.  In another story, a woman is  forced to leave her drunken partner on Christmas day with her  new child only to lose the baby  later in a custody battle, waging  the paternal court system against  her own youlh and naivete.  The death of a child and birth  of another in "Use's story" provides a tragic balance to the  evening's performance, bringing  full circle the cycle of life.  Providing musical accompaniment to Hick's reading, guitarist Len Hill lent the cafe surroundings the appropriate air of  warmth and drama.  SECHELT APPLIANCE  & MATTRESS CENTRE  ...and now LIGHTS!

"We made our living from  killing things and catching  things and taking advantage of  everything in those days," he  says.  Over the years, those attitudes have been changing. People are now faced with a new  and complicated set of both  ethical and practical questions  grown up around the capture  and keeping of whales - questions that tap into larger philosophical concerns about how far  we are willing to go in pursuit of  scientific knowledge and how  much right we have to decide  fate of another species.  The orca, with its sheer size,  physical strength, marked intellect and silent beauty, seem to  emphasize those questions  which began soon after those  first captures in the 1960s.  The distinction between what  was initially viewed as a victory  and a later interpretation of  cruelty began to blur and the  rules of the game began to  change.  Says Daly: "At the time  when I was watching it, I didn't  think of it. It was just so exciting to see these massive creatures. In the years since I've  really felt badly.

Almosl naif of the claim-  free owners of private passenger vehicles in BC will see  premium increases of 3% or less. Only 2% will face increases  greater than 6% and 17% of claim-free motorists  will pay less in 1994.  m  SHORT TERM COVERAGE?  The 3% short term surcharge (based on annual premium) hat  bun reduced to 2.5% for 3 to 7 month policies, and 2% for 8  toll months.  m  TEMPORARY PERMIT?  1-day Temporary Operating Permits will cosl 20% less. Bul  the cost of 15-day permits will double. This reflects the  number and cost of claims paid to people using these permits.  m  COLLECTOR?  You can only apply for or renew collector insurance on a  vehicle with a collector licence plate if you have a current  Autoplan Owner's Certificate on another non-collector  vehicle, registered in BC.  m  COMPREHENSIVE?  Changes in the cost of Comprehensive coverage will vary  depending on where you live and Ihe windshield and crime-  related claim trends in your area.  m  COLLISION?  The cost of this optional coverage is increased by an average  1.5%, between $3 and $8 for most motorists.

That reduced premium is shown in the box marked "Prorated  Premium" on your 1993 insurance form.  In 1994, your policy and premium will be calculated on a full 12  month term.

Joel Johnstone photo  Local talent ships out to build floating theatre  by Jane Seyd  Gibsons is a long way from  the Great Lakes of Ontario.  But it's here in John Dear-  den's boatbuilding shop off  North Road that plans have been  taking shape for a vessel which  will someday soon draw crowds  to the shores of Eastern Canada.  Dearden, whose experience  with boat operation and design  goes back to his days on the  River Thames, has worked up  plans for a unique kind of vessel: a floating theatre stage  which will be run by the Caravan Theatre Company.  The idea is "they put on the  show on board the vessel and  everybody sits on the shore" to  watch, says Dearden.  Below decks, there will be  quarters for actors to live and  store equipment.  Besides low overhead costs,  the floating theatre will allow  the company to put on shows in  communities which wouldn't  normally be able to bring in performances, says Dearden.  There's also the novelty  attraction, which Caravan first  hooked into with their horse  drawn wagons of the 1970s.  "They even came here and  went up to Sechelt a number of  years ago," says Dearden.  John Dearden at a boatbuilding project last year.  file photo  "They told me how much fun  they had getting the horses on  the ferry."  In. the case of floating theatre, "they'd been thinking of  having a vessel built but they  didn't know what they wanted,"  LOGS  WANTED  he says.  What Dearden came up with  was a boat based on a sailing  barge, like those he used to  operate around both Britain and  the Great Lakes.  Flat-bottomed boats originally powered by wind, "they used  to carry all kinds of things  before trucks were common,"  says Dearden.  He adds, however, that the  term "barge" has a slightly different meaning in Britain.  "Here you think of a square  box that gets pulled around by a  tug," he says. But these boats  "have quite a bit of shape to  TERMINAL  Forest Products Ltd.

One advantage of a flat-bottomed boat is it can go into  smaller waterways where larger  keeled boats can't venture.  Instead of a keel, the "stage  barge" will have lee boards on  the sides for stabilization, which  can be pulled up out of the  water if necessary.  Hatches on the deck will be  bigger and flatter than usual, so  they can be used as stages.  Lighting and sound for performances will be controlled from  the wheelhouse.  With a hull of 85 ft, (and a  bowsprit adding an extra IS ft)  the completed ship will weigh  about 100 tons, and will take 40  to 50 tons of steel to build.  A mast standing 90 ft upright  can be lowered if necessary, to  fit under fixed bridges. The  stage barge will have six sails,  which will make up a total of  3000 square feet of sail.  Amazingly enough, it will  also fit on to the deck of a larger  ship for longer voyages.  None of this is especially  new to Dearden, who came to  Canada as a skipper for a sailing  barge, after starting off in ship  design 20 years ago.  These days, most of his work  in Gibsons is on yachts and  small work boats so the stage  barge taking shape in Kingston  is "a little bigger than I usually  do," says Dearden.  This week, for instance, he's  repainting a 38-ft ketch, which  looms above the drafting table  where designs for the stage  barge are sitting.  "A lot of my work is just  general fabrication. And not  always related to boats," says  Dearden.  Most often he works in aluminum: "You don't have the  same kind of corrosion problems and aluminum's come  down a lot in price," he comments.  The current plan is for the  stage barge to be afloat and giving performances by next summer.  Meanwhile, "I've still got  quite a few drawings to do,"  says Dearden. "I'm basically  just keeping ahead of their  progress."  Got a  news story?  Call the  COAST  NEWS!

The Royal City Hockey  League team dropped their latest venture 7-2, Dec. II,  against the plodding Burnaby  Bingers. With the loss the  Sharks record dipped to seven  losses, no wins and no ties.  As is usual with the team,  they opened the game up with  fresh legs and a renewed zeal  to win, and buoyed by a Tom  Poulton first period goal, the  first frame ended in a one goal  deadlock.  Yet, the rule of the Sharks  playing well in the first is as  proven as their penchant to fall  asleep in the second and Bumaby pounced during the middle  period nap time���bursting  ahead to post a 6-1 lead.  "We didn't have a great second," admitted Shark gunner  Tom Poulton. The goals the  Bingers scored were due to "a  few lapses," he said.  Perhaps satisfied with their  bulging lead, the Bingers  entered the third with an obvious game plan of just skating  with the Sharks.  With the door opened a little, the Sharks picked their  game up a notch to the benefit  of the sub-100 person crowd at  the Sechelt Arena and though  the goals didn't come, some  inspiration was created for their  next home game, Jan. 8.  The  Sunshine  Coast Sharks  scramble in  the Bumaby  Bingers  crease trying  to keep  the game  close Dec. 11  at the Sechelt  Arena.  Joel Johnstone  photo  Bantam C Leafs first in Lions Gate League  by Gord Bishop  The 93/94 Minor Hockey Season is well  underway with the Bantam Division (14/15  yr. olds) split into two teams 'A' and 'C  The 'C' team competing in the Lions  Gate League with seven other teams from  Squamish, West Van, Hollybum Country  Club and North Van has been veiy competitive.  Our team has completed 16 games so far  with an 8 win, 5 loss, 3 tie record.  This team of 16 players have also earned  11 additional points for good sportsmanship  (ie. 10 minutes of penalties in a game or  less) and are the least penalized team in the  league.  The total places our team in first place.  But the competition is not over yet. With 16  games yet to be played in the league season  and then playoffs leading to the final game  in March.  These kids from our community are dedicated and great sportsmen. Their head coach  Lance Lacey with assistance from Richard  Knight and Mike Babcock (none of whom  have kids of their own in hockey) are gener  ously giving of their spare time to support  these kids. Thanks a million...  Minor hockey provides a very positive  program for all our kids. The volunteers give  generously of their time to make it happen  annually. Many thanks to the businesses and  service clubs who donate financial help to  keep the program as reasonable as possible.  As the team's manager I am very pleased  to be able to work with these kids in the program. They are a great group. Along with  their parents who are veiy supportive. This  season is sure to be very successful.  Pigs itching to get back into league play  by Ian Cobb  The Gibsons Pigs rugby club  are itching to round their perfect  record to a dozen���but Mother  Nature is getting in the way of  those plans.  Last weekend marked the  third straight inactive week for  the club, with playing surfaces  being closed because of the wet  coecNng tips  weather.  To help stay in form the 11  win, no loss Vancouver Rugby  Union leading Pigs are hoping  the clouds will calm down long  enough for them to put in an  exhibition game against Powell  River of the North Island Rugby  Union.  Scheduled for Dec. 18 (noon)  behind Elphinstone Secondary  School, the game is being touted  as the Sunshine Coast Cup.  "We try to play them at least  once a year," said Pigs  spokesman Ray Dow.  It is also possible the league  may wish to stage a make-up  game, Dow said.  Either way, playing time is  needed. "You've got to play to  be sharp," be said.  The cancelled games have  also come on the eve of thc  Christmas break for the VRU  and aside from two game makeup weekends (Jan. 8 and 15), the  Pigs next scheduled game is Jan.  22 versus the Meralomas in  Gibsons.  If you coach hockey which  involves body contact, one of  your greatest challenges is teaching players proper checking  skills.  Checking is an advanced skill  which must be taught only after  players master skating skills.  To ensure players learn in a  safe, non-threatening environment, checking should be taught  using a four-step progression:  positioning/angling, stick checks,  body conlact and body checking.  In positioning/angling, teach  players to read the degree of  puck control and control skating  speed to force the puck earner in  the desired direction.  The angle and speed of  approach puts the defender in a  position to utilize stick checks  like the poke, sweep and hook  checks and the stick press and  lift.Progress to body contact only  when players can control and  contain a puck carrier without  body contact.  To develop contact confidence, match players in size and  ability and use drills like bumping in pains.  Players should have hit opponents by going in the opposite  direction or push opponents into  the boards.  Body checking should only be  taught to skilled, mature players.  You are responsible for  instilling respect in your players,  teaching them to never hit opponents from behind and to keep  their arms, elbows and sticks  down.  Teach players proper techniques for the shoulder, hip and  roller checks and the hit and pin.  Ensure your players are always  aware of the "danger zone," the 3  - 4 metres in front of the boards,  and teach them to absorb checks  with the arms and body.

And the trappings of  mankind often mean a horn of  plenty of goodies for Black  Bears.  With an abundance of gardens, garbage, greasy grills on  barbecues, compost heaps and  sundry pet foods, bears will  happily wander through yards  with hopes of easy snacks.  What this means is a lot of  bear complaints are phoned into  the BC Environment conservation officer service and the Sunshine Coast's lone CO says he's  received more calls this year  than in the past.  Doug Pierce says he hasn't  tallied up the actual number of  complaints, but he believes  there's been "several hundred,"  with most of them coming in the  spring and fall.  "Generally speaking, people  are quite tolerant," Pierce says,  noting he'll receive up to 12  calls a day in the spring and  because he has only one live-  trap, it can take a while to get  around to answering complaints.  As for the number of bears  trapped and relocated, the CO  admits to having moved,  "Many."  Once a bear wanders into the  trap, lured in by a mixture of  pungent bear delicacies such as  dead fish and other animal parts,  the animal is knocked out with a  shot of Ketamin-Rompom, ear-  tagged and moved.  "I try to separate them across  'Generally speaking,  people are  quite tolerant'  ���Doug Pierce  the inlet from their home  range," Pierce says, explaining  if a bear is caught in Gibsons  he'll take it to the Caren Range  and if it's nabbed in Sechelt,  he'll ship it to the Tetrahedron  area.  By moving them across  Sechelt Inlet that way, the likelihood of the 'problem' bear  returning is lessened.  "Occasionally - but not  often," Pierce replies when  asked about bears returning to  the scenes of their crimes.  And if they do, he  says,"We'll certainly take a  closer look the second time  around" and if the bear exhibits  signs of aggressiveness, they're  destroyed.  In related news, another large  North American carnivore is  helping to keep Pierce busy.  On Nov. 12, he responded to  a complaint of a cougar in the  Pender Harbour area. The large  cat had been spotted on a garage  roof and was sighted again Nov.  21 in the same area.  Cougar complaints aren't an  unusual occurrence, says Pierce.  "I believe we have the largest  cougar population other than  Vancouver Island," he says of  the Sunshine Coast area.  Finally, in the critter sighting  department, Coast residents are  reporting more and more elk  sightings, reports the CO.  Introduced back to the Coast  in 1987-89, in the Pender Harbour area, the elk population has  grown threefold.  "We're probably looking at  about 60-70 now," says Pierce.  Twenty-three elk were originally brought over from Vancouver  Island.  "There's some big ones,  too," Pierce exclaims, noting a  large buck sporting a four to  five point rack has been spotted  near Trout Lake.  "They're truly a spectacular  animal," he says, laughing,  "Though some people aren't  certain about what they are. One  guy phoned up and told me he  saw five caribou."  The elk have migrated from  the Pender Harbour area up and  down the powerlines along the  Coast and it's at this time of  year when people stand the best  chance of spotting the animals.  "I really encourage people to  go out and see them," Pierce  says.  SPCA News - Petunia Is a wonderful companion to humans  but has a little trouble with other dogs.

These  covenants can cover a  wide range of subjects,  including exterior paint  colours, where vehicles  may be parked, building  set backs, fencing, what  kinds of shrulxi or flowers  you may plant, and how  tall you can let them grow.  These covenants have  their attractions for many  purchasers. You don't  nave to worry about your  neighbours doing some  types of things that you  might find offensive. At  the same time, however,  they could cramp your  style if you are an  individualist and don't  appreciate community  interference in plans for  your home. If you are  buying a home in a  planned community, make  your offer contingent' on  your seeing and approving  any neighbourhood rules  and regulations.  If there is a move in your  future, contact Jon McRae  at NRS Gibsons Realty,  a*M6-2277 (office) or 886-  3999 (home).

Styrofoam and plastics pose the  biggest threat lo wildlife  because Ihey are sometimes  eaten. The materials can become  lodged inside the body and  bring the digestive process to a  halt.  Thai's       lhe  warning from Bar-          obviously mistook  bara   Hanbidge, Fish, ducks, geese  the piece of fishing  biologist    with   andotber birds   ���*<**--!��������*��  als. The animal basically  starves. It's a long, slow death.)  And it's happening ever day,  coast to coast, because we con-/  tinue lo leave synthetic materials in the wilderness and the  water."  The second problem is exemplified by a recent news story  out of Calgary where a duck had  its bill locked shut by a fish  hook. The duck  Ducks Unlimited  Canada (DU)  "With fishing and  camping now in  full swing, veterinarians, conservation officers and  agencies like DU  start    receiving        request to save  creatures injured by human  garbage."  Hanbidge says garbage damage done to wildlife falls into  three categories: animals consuming materials which are not  biodegradable, animals feeding  near Ashing areas and animals  entangled in garbage.  "This first area is probably  the most significant and Ihe  most difficult to document  because animals don't check  themselves into a hospital for  help. Styrofoam and plastic  from coolers, bait containers,  beach toys and other recreational equipment breaks down into  small pieces which are mistaken  for floating food. The white  packing chips are Ihe biggest  problem. They are so light and  easily carried by wind and water  that they find their way into  water systems hundreds of miles  from their source.  "Fish, ducks, geese and olher  birds see these tiny items on the  water and gobble them up. Bul  their digestive system eventually  become plugged because it can't  process these synthetic materi  see these tiny  items on tbe  water and gobble  them up  -llarbaru Hanbidge  food and went for  il. This is a relatively common  occurrence in  parks and recreation areas where  people feed ducks  and geese. Waterfowl easily adapt  to human presence. They become accustomed  to eating whatever people throw  oul, whether it's bread crusts or  Lazy Ikes.  Entangled animals make up  the third group. Birds and mammals, and even fish, are curious  critters. They like to investigate  new and interesting things they  find. Bul, they are easily trapped  in seemingly simple items such  as discarded webbing from landing nets, throw-away fish line,  plastic bags, plastic rings from  six-pack holders or virtually any  other foreign item introduced  into a natural environment.  Hanbidge says there's only  way lo know for sure you  haven't contributed to the slow  death of some fish, bird or mammal. "The wilderness campers  have the right idea. Everything  you bring in with you is also  brought out again. Every last  item of man-made m sure you  haven't contributed to the slow  death of some fish, bird or mammal.

Save money, plant  trees as part of  Global Releaf project  It  Inrlrc   in  imur  m-ilt-ii-tv     a lr***-*c  It lurks in your mailbox, a  silent, nondescript envelope  destined to be the harbinger of  bad news eveiy time its seal is  broken. It's called an energy  bill, and it devours money.  The squandering of precious  energy and financial resources  can be curbed through a simple  and effective remedy, commonly known as a tree. Everyone  knows that trees create shade in  the summer to shield a house  from the sun's hot rays and act  as windbreaks in the winter to  screen a house from penetrating,  icy winds. For the first time,  Global ReLeaf, Ihe national  community tree planting program of Friends of the Earth,  has quantified the energy savings in dollars.  The results are striking.  Global ReLeaf's 1991 report,  The Tree-House Effect, is the  first exclusively Canadian study  of the potential for tree planting  lo reduce the amount of energy  needed for residential healing  and cooling. It suggests that  Canadian homeowners could  collectively save more lhan  $200 million a year in household energy costs. The average  residential saving was calculated to be $85 a year when Irees  covered 30 per cent of the property (three Irees per house).  This study used calculations  based on the random planting of  three trees around a house.  Planting trees strategically ���  with softwoods to the northwest  for windbreak and hardwoods to  the south for shade ��� could  dramatically increase the energy-saving effectiveness of those  Irees.  To aid a homeowner in  treescaping for maximum energy efficiency, Global ReLeaf  has developed The Homeowner's Guide to Planting Energy  Conservation Trees. It provides  advice lo homeowners on  species selection, tree placement  and maintenance, and includes a  treescape map for plotting energy conservation trees around a  home.  An increase in tree canopy  equates to a decrease in atmospheric carbon dioxide (the  largest single contributor to  global climate change). Trees  absorb carbon dioxide in the  process of photosynthesis,  incorporate it into new wood  and release oxygen for us to  breaths. Since the burning of  fossil fuels is the main source of  atmospheric carbon dioxide,  cutting back on energy use will  also help to prevent climate  change. Friends of the Earth  works to make Canada a leader  in reducing carbon dioxide  emissions.  By joining the Iree planting  movement and ordering a free  copy of the Homeowner's  Guide lo Planting Energy Conservation Trees, you can save  money, reduce energy consumption and contribute to a healthier, safer environment. To obtain  a copy of the Homeowner's  Guide to Planting Energy Conservation Trees, send a stamped  self-addressed envelope IS x 23  centimetres to Global ReLeaf,  #701 - 251 Laurier Avenue  West, Ottawa, Ontario, KIP  5J6.
