 The Sunshine  LEGISLATIVE LIBRARV  vi��ori��, B.C. V8V ,X4  November 19,1990   Volume44   Issue47  On Gibsons boundary  New mall  roads problem  ���Joel Johnstone photo  ���Row Nicholson photo  Voters decisive  Small and MacLarty lead respective municipalities  by Jan Michael Sherman  Following one of the most  spirited campaigns in Coast  history, Nancy MacLarty in  Sechelt and Eric Small in Gibsons will lead new aldermanic  alignments in their respective  municipal jurisdictions next  month.  In a surprisingly decisive outcome of the Sechelt mayoralty  race, former alderman Nancy  MacLarty trounced Alderman  David Wells by an almost 2-1  margin. MacLarty polled 929  votes against 555 for Wells.  With 389 votes, Stan Dixon  placed a respectable Third,  while Roger Lagasse received  103 votes.  In Gibsons, the result was  almost equally decisive. Mayor-  Elect Eric Small out-polled  Alderman Gerry Dixon also by  an almost 2-1 margin. Jane  Sorko received a respectable 175  votes in her first electoral bid,  while Benoit LePage registered  a personal high of 39 votes.  Gibsons newcomer Margaret  Morrison, with 784 votes, easily  out-distanced the other aldermanic candidates. Walter Bradshaw received 610 votes, Dr. Ed  Steeves 506, former SCRD  Chairman John McNevin 504.  They will form the new Council  in December. Janine Haughton,  Karl Hawkins, and Eric Huggins, the defeated candidates,  all ran up respectable tallies.  Contrary to the wholesale  changes in Gibsons, two-thirds  of the present Council in Sechell  has been returned. Joyce  Kolibas, Bob Wilson, Michael  Shanks, and Doug Reid will be  joined by political newcomers  Peggy Wagner and Art Whistler.  Longtime municipal figure  and former mayor of Sechelt  Joyce Kolibas led the polls with  1,531 votes. Popular alderman  Bob Wilson followed with  1,1%, while Alderman Doug  Reid polled 1,128. Alderman  Michael Shanks registered 1,(109  votes. The newly-elected aldermen, Whistler and Wagner,  polled 952 aod WJ.vptes respectively.  Showing well in a losing  cause was out-going alderman  Bob Graham, and turned back  in their first try at public office  were Donald Cameron, Philip  Kevill, and Don Rose.  * ��� * * ea  All incumbents running were  returned in the various School  Board Elections. Maureen  Clayton and Carol Adams won  resounding victories. Clayton  led the poll with 1,454 votes,  followed by Adams with 1,048.  Frank  Konopasek and Mary  Bland tallied 591 and 484  respectively.  In Gibsons Shawn Cardinall  turned back challenger Barbara  ���*Mopkinsvby a vote of 551 to  416.  Lynn Munro was the decisive  winner in Rural Zone #1, winning by 683 votes to Shirley  Hall's 363. Out-going trustee  Doris Phillips chose not to seek  re-election.  In Rural Zone #2, Pat  Stewart, Lynn Chapman, and  Lenore Joe were all returned  Comfortably, polling 748, 631,  and 508 votes respectively.  Attempts at election by Joe  Horvath. Jakob Knaus and  Judy Wilson were turned back.  by Rose Nicholson  The proposed new Gibsons  Park Plaza shopping mall at the  junction of Highway 101 and  Pratt Road came in for lengthy  discussion at the Regional  District's November IS planning nutting.  Marcop, the developers, have  asked for a Development  Variance Permit that would  allow them to reduce the  number of parking spaces to  comply with Regional District  requirements for improvements  in architectural design and additional landscaping.  "This is well worth it," commented Director Jeremy Frith.  "A few less parking spaces  would be preferable to yet  another huge expanse of  blacktop."  Directors passed a motion  that a recommendation go forward to the next regular Board  meeting for first and second  readings for the amended bylaw and that the Area E APC be  consulted.  Further concerns to. do with  highway access also came up for  discussion. Gibsons Planner,  Rob Buchan, was present to  discuss the town's interests. He  pointed out that as the development lies along the boundary of  Gibsons the logical access is onto Payne Road.  "Payne Road is an unpaved  rural road within the town's  boundaries," he explained.  "Because there are only three  residences on it, it has low  priority in terms of upgrading.  "If and when the new bypass  comes down Payne Road the  problem would be solved. But  at the moment it appears that  may be only an 'ir. I'm con-  cerned about the impact on  Payne Road if the development  go<es ahead before the bypass  goes in.  "Section 989 of the  Municipal Act only gives the  town the tight to requite I  developer to upgrade to the centre line of a municipal road  allowance. As this is within the  Regional District, we cannot exercise that right. The question  I'm concerned with is the  hypothetical yet very real  possibility of this development  wishing to go ahead in a time  frame that may well precede the  advent of the bypass.  "In that event, the impact of  several hundred cars on a  presently rural standard road  does present the town with a  problem. At the moment I  don't see any solution to that."  "This has not escap<sd my  notice, nor my constituents',"  commented Director Jim  Gurney. "No one is more aware  of the problems around Pratt  Road. I have suggested to the  Department of Highways that  they should consider an upgrade  of Pratt Road at the intersection  of Pratt and 101.  "It's a real problem now. To  add a shopping mall to the same  situation is going to compound  it even more. This development  is premature from a road  development point of view by a  couple of years. Highways is  clearly in control of the situation."  "I will recommend that the'  town contact the Ministry of  Highways and urge a study of  the nwd system," concluded  Buchan.  Wilson and Gurney  returned to SCRD  In a hard-fought battle for Area "A", incumbent SCRD  Director Gordon Wilson held on to his seat by out-polling  challenger Joe Harrison 495 to 389. Wilson captured all polls  except Egmont. The referendum of support for the Medical  Centre passed easily.  In Aiea "E", longtime SCRD Director Jim Gurney won  handily, trouncing newcomer Richard Leask 482 to 101.  All other Regional Board directors were returned by acclamation.  Mottle Anthony won the contest for bland Trustee,  Revitalization  Martin Thomas, Program Co-ordlnalor for Municipal  Economic Renewal Programs, will be the guest speaker at the  Sechelt and District Chamber of Commerce November  General Meeting.  The meeting will be held on Tuesday, November 27,1990,  6:30 epm at tlte Driftwood Inn. Coal is $15 for membm and  their guests, $16.50 for non-members. Reservations are a  must. Please contacl the Chamtier office, 885-7031, before  2:30 pm on November 23.  Propane conversion  by Rote Nicholson  Plans are under way to convert two Regional District  trucks to propane. The conversion, which will initially provide  a dual fuel system, will cost  $2356 for one truck and $1874  for the other.  Using May 1990 prices of  67.9 cents peer litre for gas and  36 cents per litre for propane, it  was estimated by Works  Superintendent Sig Lehman,  that the costs of conversion  would be recovered within two  years and from the third year  onward the .annual saving in  fuel costs would be $1270.  Minor flood damage  The Sunshine Coast suffered minor road and drain  flooding during last week's downpour which  paralyzed areas of central and Lower Mainland, BC  last week. Art Popp, area manager for BC Ministry  of Transportation and Highways, reported a combination of warm weather snow melt and approximately 125 millimetres of rainfall caused water to  overflow roadways at Langdale Creek and the creek  at Highway 101 ind Crow Road, pictured left and  below right. "That's the most water I've seen at one  time," he said, but added Ihe crisis is past and the  roadways could handle regular continuing  precipitation. Capilano Highways replaced the  culvert at Crow Road early Sunday and Ihe Port  Mellon dam, below left, was frothing from the excess fun-off. ���PkotMbyZak  Serving the Sunshine Coast since 1945 Coast News, November 19,1990  \  comment:  An overview  Environmentalist bashing is fast becoming the sport of  choice among corporate industrial giants, most notably in  the logging industry. Given the prevalence of ecology and  environmentally-conscious organizations here in British  Columbia, it is not surprising that a good deal of this  cheap shot tactic is being indulged in by logging interests  determined to keep the spotlight away from their own ineptitudes, venalities, and outright malfeasances.  As is the case historically, a good deal of co-option is involved. Loggers working for large operations are subjected  to company/industry propaganda which confuses perceptions and turns reality on its head. The result is seeming  apologists for the logging behemoths making such  statements as "Industry is aware of bully tactics and land  grabs by extreme environmental groups - as is the banking  industry."  What 'bully tactics' might we be talking about here?  The RCMP, never reticent about doing their duty, seem lo  be coping just fine with logging-oriented protests. This is  because virtually all protesters make their points in a law-  abiding fashion. Bully tactics have almost always been the  province of those being protested or picketed against.  Environmentalist bashing also includes high-powered  propaganda designed to instill the mendacious belief lhat  vast numbers of logging jobs stand teetering on a  precipice, and it is those effete bleeding heart 'tree buggers' who are going to push those poor ordinary working  stiffs off the cliff and inlo the void of permanent  unemployment.  It is, of course, nonsense, but nonsense of an especially  cruel kind. But given the fact that logging workers have  not taken to physically savaging logging protesters, we can  only conclude that the forest workers are not as naive as  their bosses seem to think they are.  The workers know why the industry is in decline. They  know something about BC's logging history, probably a  lot more than the men in the highrise head offices who've  never gotten 'rain in their lunch bucket.'  It is time for the industry to stop looking for scape goats  and to face the realities of their self-made situation. Greed,  short-sightedness, a lack of tangible love for the land they  are 'harvesting', and a high-handed contempt for anyone's  interests but their own, is responsible for their predicament.  It is also time for a courageous political leader or two to  do some massive and long overdue slash burning in the  Department of Forests.  Let the bashing begin at home where it might do some  good.  -from our files ���  We Remember When  5 YEARS AQO  Plans for a new Gibsons highway by-pass should be  complete by January of 1986. "It could be built within  nine months, perhaps we are on the verge of the by-pass  at last," commented Gibsons Alderman John Burnside.  House numbering is now complete for the Town of  Gibsons. Planner Rob Buchan met last week with the  fire department and the ambulance service and the new  system was well received by both.  10 YEARS AQO  One of Pender Harbour's true pioneers, Ed Wharnock,  died November 12 at his home on Francis Peninsula.  Local trailers are disappointed at the new regulations  released last month by Fisheries Minister Romeo  Leblanc.  Voters in Gibsons turned out In record numbers to  replace retiring aldermen Stu Metcalfe and Dick Fit-  chett with Bill Edney and Diane Strom, and to reaffirm  their right to shop on Sundays.  20 YEARS AGO  Ken's Lucky Dollar store In Gibsons changed hands  with new owner Bill Edney taking over from Ken Watson. Edney, who has operated several food stores on  the mainland, announced that he and his family would  settle in Gibsons shortly.  30 YEARS AQO  St. Mary's Hospital received approval to hold a  plebiscite to authorize formation in the Hospital Improvement District.  This was the last week Gibsons and Sechelt  residents turned magneto cranks on their telephones.  At 11 am Saturday, the new automatic exchange equipment went into operation.  40 YEARS AQO  The 32 foot gillnetter Linda had a narrow escape from  total destruction when it piled onto the beach across  from the Union Store In Sechelt during a storm.  Clarence Joe Incurred minor damage to his seiner when  he performed salvage operations on the Linda.  Sidney Holland retired from the staff of the  Elphinstone Co-operative after 25 years. Holland said  he has seen the community of Gibsons grow from its  childhood when It was little more than a few houses used mostly by summer visitors to its present size and he  feels that it is still a long way from full growth.

She is  immortal, caught up fully in the  chakra juices and spiritual sap  coursing through every worker  cell of her corporeal entity.  Meaning that the silly twit  will simply not listen to reason  when it comes to certain aspects  of her lifestyle.  She refuses to take seriously  the fact that she smokes in excess of two packs a day of her  favourite brand of cigarettes  which, the last time I looked,  was Camels.  But don't get me wrong.  Don't assume that because I  was forced to quit smoking, I'm  now riding that silly, superior  I haven't had so much gftftiv hobbyhorse of the recently  puff on a cancer stick for a     hysterically converted. On one  month now.  Nothing noble or praiseworthy, I assure you. My doctor  made it clear that a man with a  "pre-ulcerous condition" has  little hope of real healing as long  as he continues to abuse his  stomach with the likes of caffeine and nicotine.  The other day, fighting my  way through the urge to light up  a lungful, an image of my  daughter presented itself in living colour (and four dimensions) on the IMAX screen of  my mind.  Samantha is 21, a blond,  blue-eyed wunderkind finishing  up her senior year at the University of California at Santa Cruz.  Like many of her contemporaries, she is beyond bright,  beyond all-knowing and all-  powerful, and certainly a quan-  level, and a very Operational  one, I can't care whether Sam  smokes or not. Hell, I find it  difficult enough not to worry  about aspects of my life over  which 1 have a modicum of control.  But the other day, when this  bubbly, deliciously and achingly  alive hard-charging fruit of my  loins popped up on the old internal newsreel, I was suddenly  confronted with a monstrous  tidal wave of retroactive guilt  and shame.  I have smoked (off and on)  for close to 25 years, and I live  every moment with the awareness of the possible consequences of my chosen addiction. I was in my early twenties  when I started smoking, so I accept full responsibility for my  actions.  In a nutshell  But Sam came into this world  with a set of cigarette-sucking  parents just waiting to provide  her with a couple of smoke-  blowing role models. Role  models available day in and day  out to teach her how to smoke  without anyone involved honestly believing that any serious  instruction was taking place.  The most grotesque, ghoulish  laugh of them all is that there  were plenty of times when  Denise or I (or both of us in  tandem) injected Sam with well-  intentioned mini-lectures about  the perils and sheer stupidity of  cigarette smoking. We probably  even delivered some of these  caveats with ciggies hanging  from our hypocritical lips.  Sam was about IS when she  decided that having her very  own addiction would be cool ex-  islentially. Understanding well  the dangers of heroin, cocaine,  morphine, demerol, metham-  phetamine and other highly-  addictive substances, she wisely  opted for the one addiction she  was most comfortable and  familiar with���cigarettes. After  all mom and dad were alive and  well, and everywhere she looked  she saw people smoking���not  shooting up. And by the time  she realized that more people  die from cigarette smoking in a  year than have died from cocaine in the history of the  planet���it was too late. She was  hooked.  And I bear some of the  responsibility. This engenders  guilt. And the shame stems  from the fact that 1 was not  possessed of the requisite  amount of fortitude and other  good moral stuff which might  have enabled me to quit smoking no later than July 22, 1969.  Samantha was born the next  day. Now, 21 years later,  whenever certain psychological  and neuronal associations are  fired within my Mind-Brain  complex, my daughter's  presence invades me, haunts  me, and forces me to suffer for  an agonizing moment the slings  and arrows of outrageous fortune which I, in my weakness  and stupidity, had a hand in  aiming and releasing from the  bow.  The other night Sam called  and I asked her how much guilt  she thought her mother and I  might experience should she,  young and wonderful .Samantha, die of a smoking-related  disease while we were still alive  and kicking the habit.  The line to Santa Cruz was  dead silent until I heard the un-  mistakeable whoosh! of a  match being lit, closely followed  by a pair of fearful lungs inhaling with a hissing of various  emotional tensions.  Then, oddly enough, while  waiting for my daughter to  come back on the line, I saw my  mother's face on the old inner  screen.  She used to smoke, !5o did my  dad. (So, for that matter, did  my wife's mother. Her father  still smokes.)  Wonder what all this means.  Earliest days of radio  by S. Nutter  A week or so ago somebody  dropped the fact on radio that it  was the CBC's 54th anniversary, and I got to thinking back  to see if 1 could remember anything of it back in 1936, and an  unlikely little figure came to  mind.  Aubrey Green. Aubrey Green  was a gnomish, red haired  hypochondriac from North  Winnipeg who wrote radio  plays almost from the very  beginning it seemed. He wrote,  as I remember, a kind of North  Winnipeg Noel Coward. Almost anything went I guess, and  what you got for it back then  was something like $30 a play.  There was another reason for  remembering Aubrey. Outside  my dutch window at the back is  a wood lot which catches a nicely varied sequence of birds.  Lately there has been an  unusual voice from the serried  cedar, old arbutus, birch and  alder etc. It is a deep croaking  voice far beyond anything the  coast crows can come up with,  primeval it sometimes seems.  Well, Aubrey you see wrote a  play that involved a lot of bird  song. It was not produced 1  think, but he showed it to me in  the sixties, in Toronto where he  had moved to be where the action was. It was an odd play  alright. There was an old fellow  dying on a porch. He's just lying there in bed throughout,  and listening to the birds.

We got a disc of birdsong from  the CBC sound library and took  it to a little sound studio handy,  and played with the frequencies.  Sure enough man. Chirps of  sparrows became articulated into extraordinary detail of  almost speech. Caws became  jungle sounds of almost  unimaginable hideousness...The  old guy in the play was sure  enough terrified to death.  So, it appeared, was the  putative producer. He was a lit-  tly bouncy guy who normally  wantetd to tell you about bis  latest idea for yd anoiher production of 'Touch of the Poet'  or whatever. I had at the time a  play in with him also.

WCWC has been a moderating influence since its beginning, vocally and prominently  opposing all actions that  threaten or endanger people or  property. In fact WCWC has  stood proudly, often alone, in  letting the public, Forest Companies, Unions and the Environmental movement know  that dangerous monkey wrenching activities are not acceptable. As Canadians we WCWC  members believe the democratic  system works, and we're here to  see that it does!  Questions about moral leadership, and the lack thereof,  should be directed at Mac-  eMillan-Bloedel and the Share  the Resources groups who've  been inflaming the situation.  Mac-Bio's veiled threats in the  Tsitika, saying MB "couldn't  be responsible for their  employees if they couldn't get  to work", is tantamount to  sanctioning violence. And why  wasn't disciplinary action taken  when 200 MB loggers blockaded  natives  and   environmen  talists on the road into the  Tsitika?  The courts heard Western  Canada Wilderness Committee  Director Derek Young's testimony that death threats were  directed at him and oth<er  campCTs by Share the Resources  members in the Tsitika  valley���and ytt we haven't  heard any hint of regret from  that organization.  So where's the lack of moral  leadership in the Tsitika? Certainly there's a clear mandate  from Western Canada Wilderness Committee not to engage  in illeegal ams. I think it's time  MacLarty clarifies late ad  Editor:  As I write this on Thursday,  November 15,1 have no way of  knowing whether 1 was successful in my bid for the office  of Mayor of Setchelt. I wish  whoever was successful much  luck in the coming three years  and thank all those who supported me at the polls.  However, I feel 1 must set the  record straight regarding a large  ad placed by 'The Sechelt Committee for Responsible Government' that endorsed me and six  aldermanic candidates in the  Sechelt election.  1. I was approached by this  committee on the telephone and  was offered their support,  which I declined as I have done  with every other offer of support during the campaign, except for leg work in canvassing  door to door.  2.1 was asked if I would accept their endorsation which I  accepted as 1 would any other  group or individual endorsation. However, 1 specifically  stipulated that I would only accept an endorsation...not a  sponsorship.  3.1 was unaware of the content of the advertisement that  the group placed in the local  press and disagree with the wording and some of the points expressed.  4. I do not agree with all of  their endorsations and choice of  candidates.  Most of all, I want the people  of Sechelt to know that what  was printed in the ad or any  other literature put out by this  group is not as they say "what  you may expat from the above  candidates". No one, except  Nancy MacLarty, may say what  to expect from Nancy MacLarty-  I am my own person and do  not owe anything, nor do I expert anything from anyone except, of course, the S<echelt electorate. To them I owe my integrity and, if elected, exc*ct to  earn their trust.  I regret any confusion which  was caused by this ad.  Nancy A. MacLarty  Sechelt, BC  'Electric Plus' a real shocker  Editor:  The letter of Elspeth  West wood in last week's Coast  News was most appropriate.  Fifteen thousand of us spent  considerable monies to convert  systems to take advantage of the  50 per cent rate for electric  heating. Expecting to pay this  off by the reduced rate in two to  three years. Now Hydro,  through a letter from John  Sheehan, VP Customer Rela  tions, proposes to increase this  rate by 32 per cent for now.  Further, it suggests that interruptions, the basis of the special  rate, could last a whole heating  season. This fact was not mentioned to me during the promotion of the program.  Also, at this early date into  the program, they are now promoting alternatives: Conversion  to natural gas, propane or  return to regular rate (there goes  our investment). These conver-  the courts questioned and required moral leadership from  the forest industry and those  who .benefit from the exploitation of public resources.  In my opinion there's been a  blind eye turned to ethical  behaviour, responsible stewardship and moral leadership in the  Forest Industry. It's time that  principles and a clear conscience  replaced profits and clearcuts as  the bottom line.  Survival demands more than  self-interest.  Laurie Gourlay  Ladysmith, BC  sions are easy, they say, but at  what expense to us?  I suggest that all those with  Electric Plus should write to the  BC Utilities Commission (Box  250, 900 Howe Street, Vancouver, BC, V6Z 2N3) stating  their objections to the proposed  increase, as Elspeth Westwood  has done.

SEMINAR I  I Lauds Dye. CG A I  by Sua Mom  There are so many things we  take for granted in our daily  lives, never stopping to marvel  at just how far we've come and  how fast. I've never been more  aware of it than when 1 casually  asked my 90 year old mother-in-  law where she was the day the  first plane took flight.  1 suppose the world moves  too fast for the likes of me  (born a hundred yean too late)  and we can never seem to catch  up. So I guess it's only natural  that we spin-off and land in  places where we have more control over how much technology  and haste we're exposed to.  Places  like  old   Elphinstone  where relics of the past still remain, monuments to a time  when they still built things to  last, so they could be passed  down to generations to come  ��� and the generations did  come, but of course had no use  for them.  1 suppose my biggesi fear in  this life is that we reach a point  where we can't take a step  backwards. In that I mean we  reach a point where there isn't  enough of the past to remind us  that quality was not a myth, but  a reality.  I think what we need to do in  this world is to start combining  the best of the old with the best  of the new. The only thing I've  observed that might be remotely  Earliest days of radio  Continued from page 2  can't really blame this producer.  We would corner him in his  regular afternoon drinking  place and sometimes line up on  either side. He would go on  about 'Touch of the Poet' and  we would interject what we  could about 'Birdsong' and  'Lemmings'. He would understandably get fidgety, and push  off, saying often with maximum  vagueness that he would be  speaking to us next week 'on a  business matter'.  Aubrey was usually almost  totally silent in company but he  nonetheless managed to be  around. In Winnipeg in the  earliest years the place to be was  Child's Restaurant at the corner  of Portage and Main. There  would be Aubrey perched with  a coffee in company with Tommy Tweed, Doc Guy, Maggie  Syme et al. He was there the  night that Johnny Nutter (no  relation) drove his Grahaem-  Paige car halfway in through  the plate glass window.  In Toronto, and more or less  ultimately, he got on to pretty  sombre topics. Some soccer  team from Argentina had crashed in the Andes, and the survivors, it appeared, had ended  up eating the others.  Aubrey submitted a play on  this subject, which I read and it  seemed okay to me. It bounced  back quite promptly from the  producer with a note scrawled  in heavy felt pen: 'This is unquestionably the most disgusting play I have ever read'.  Aubrey more or less then finally  quit. He got a job as information officer to some department  of government and disappeared  altogether into darkest Ottawa.  But my bird in the trees back  there. I have been in places  where ravens were all around  and I would say this is not a  raven's voice. 1 can't spend the  whole time with my head out of  the dutch window, but once I  saw, I thought I saw, a large  bird, black, with a long neck, a  very yellow hooked beak, wings  set back like a Pterodactyl,  whizz across a slant of sunlight.  :*>.

My eight years in the sticks  was in part an experiment that 1  use to refer to in my notes as  'The Semi-modern Frontier'. 1  sought out old ideas that were  practical and did my tiest to  combine them with the new  without going over-board, for a  lot of our new technology is indeed wasteful. So taking a deep  breath I plunged boldly ahead  and in the same area as the  single-line telegraph made communications possible for the  Flume operators, 1 introduced  the wireless���or simply, CB  radio.  To a lot of people Citizen  Band Radio (CB) is just a hobby, it's by no means their main  form of communication, there's  always the phone. To others it is  a cheap form of 2-way radio  communication for use in  emergencies, or for communication where no other exists. To  those who aren't too familiar  with what CB is I will try to give  it to you in a nutshell.  CB is a low powered short-  range 2-way radio, it operates  on a frequency that wasn't  much good for anything really  important so they gave it to the  people. Quite simply any 27  MHz range also known as the  11 meter band on which CB  operates.  In spite of the above description which might make one  think otherwise, yes people can  still talk on ihese radios,  although I wouldn't recommend them for use in business,  there are better typ�� of 2-way  systems more suited for the  task.  When you take a CB 2000  feet up a mountain side you get  spoiled. They are rated at having a range of 48 miles which  isn't really accurate for there are  a lot of variables that can have a  direct bearing as to how far you  'get out' (reach). I am here to  say that for the word, on a few  occasions 1 talked as far as 10  miles to the south side of Seattle��� now my math is terrible,  but that's a little further than 58  miles isn't it?  The 2-way radio was my only  form of communications with  the outside world and 1 credit it  with saving my life, but that's  another story in itself. When up  on a mountain side, you don't  get a lot of static, (there aren'l  power-lines and such to  generate it) and, unlike at sea  level, everybody you can hear  you can talk to.  Before I dispense with the  more technical side of radio,  speaking as a person who still  prefers radio in a lot of ways to  the telephone, I must put in one  more plug. During my eight  years on the rock, 1 could openly converse with the whole lower  mainland all the way up the  valley to Aldergrove, Abbotsford and the Mission area.  As I've already mentioned, getting down across the 49th  parallel (the border) was no problem, and my rover of Vancouver Island was about 75 per  cent, only reaching as far as  Comox on the northern end.  Put this to your calculator, if I  had been talking on a phone  how much would my long distance bills have amounted to?  Well, the fact is it didn't cost me  a cent!  While a lot of radio operators  like to talk about how it works,  (and, obviously I do as well  from time to time) to me CB is  people. People from all walks  of life, most of whom you never  meet in person, yet carry on  many an enlightening conversation with. It's been referred to  as friendship through radio and  I won't disagree with that for it  brought me together with the  best friend I know, my wife.  to be continued.  - G.S.T.

A colony of Beavers  by George Cooper, 8864520  The other week Langdale  Elementary gym housed 25  Beavers in their very first (amp-  out. These Beavers are boys five  to seven years of age and they  are one of several colonies of  Beavers on the Sunshine Coast.  The Beavers slept in their  camp-in-boxes, while parents,  bless them, stretched out on  foams and in sleeping bags  beside them. The large boxes,  refrigerator cartons and the  like, were decorated as castles,  teepeees, log cabins and even as a  post office.  "We had hours and hours of  activities to keep the Beavers  busy," said Gale Woodhouse,  their leader. "Crafts, games,  songs and of course supper and  breakfast with a mug-up in between."  "All the activities bring out  the theme of all Braver programs," said Gale, "To love  God and help take care of the  world." And they helped take  care of the world in their own  small way by having a garbage  clean-up in the rain for nearly  half an hour.  "In the spring we'll have our  first overnight at Camp Byng,"  said   Gale.   "We   are  very  grateful for the use of the gym  and all the willing assistance the  Langdale school gave us."  VIDEO CARTOONS  One of the activities at the  Beaver camp-out was the showing of a video that uses well-  known cartoon characters in a  scenario of children and drugs.  Since by their fourth year of  elementary school, some  children have been offered or  pressed to take alcohol and  other popular drugs by their  peers, they must learn to say no  for their own welfare.  The cartoon develops from  the kids' point of view, or what  goes on inside a child's head.  Little sister helps her adolescent  brother escape from his entanglement with marijuana.  Copies of the video have been  distributed to nearby elementary schools by RCMP Sergeant  Ed Hill. The Ronald McDonald  Charity Foundation has provided the cassettes country-wide.  The video was developed by the  Academy of TV Arts and  Sciences in consultation with  drug education and child  development experts.  Several principals of our  elementary schools noted that  the cartoon is acceptable to the  youngsters and stirs up discus-  NEW HOURS: US VET  THURS. 11-4:30PM  FRI. 1L4:30PM  SAT. 11.4PM  <0t THRIFTTS  Help The  GIBSONS -^N0V21  1386-2488 or Box 598  AJMjPNATIONAL MAL  mmW& KTATi StBVICl  Seniors Consultant, Buying, Selling,  Retirement Planning.

For  this presentation the Sound  Waves will use the Sechelt  Elementary Gym.  The program by choir and orchestra will include solos by Lyn  Vernon and by Ed Boersma,  who was the musical director of  the Pirates of Penzance. Bruce  Dunn will again conduct the orchestra. Karen Boothroyd has  done the choreography. The  Ceremony of Carols, Brahm's  Rhapsody with Lyn and the  men's choir, and the Merry  Widow with soloists from the  choir are some of the offerings  of a delightful program.

GIBSONS LEGION  Some executive officers of the  years prior to 1987 felt their service was impugned by my report  of the mortgage burning. If the  report reflected anything it was  the open admiration of the spectacular drive to clear the mortgage in the last couple of years.  If some former executive officers feel there was an implication of lacklustre service on  their parts, it is regretted, for no  such implications were intended.  in a unique way  with a personalized greeting  in the  1990 Christmas Carol &  Christmas Greeting Book  Combine your personal or business message with  a seasonal graphic in the style of your choice  to say 'SEASONS GREETINGS' to everyone on the Coast.

Coast News, November 19,1990  community news   mrmsmfwtm  Don't forget library books  by Jwkt LdghUMi, M6-3S4I  It seems a common dilemma  that once you lend something it  becomes your responsibility to  make sure it gets returned to  you. As the months slip away,  somehow in our memories the  item gets separated from the  name. Without any written connection it's then up to the four  winds to blow it back.  The Roberts Creek Library is  very familiar with partial loss of  memory in the book borrowing  arena. Oh, by all means, the  library maintains a meticulous  list of books and their borrowers. Bul, try as ihey might,  by personal and phone reminders, to get the books  relumed, somehow a good  percentage of their books  wander off.  The Roberts Creek Library is  a rarity in that it imposes no  overdue fines nor limits the  number of books allowed. It  merits a reminder this wwk to  all of us to search under the dust  on the book shelves for any  volumes that the library might  be missing.  CRAFT FAIR  The annual Christmas Craft  Fair will be held at the Roberts  Creek Community Hall this  Sunday, November 25 from I to  5 pm. Admission is 75 cents.

In the next three years we will  certainly find out who will  adhere to their promises and  who will do a complete turnabout. I hope all the excitement  and interest with this election  will not end here and the voters  will continue to be watch dogs,  and attend meetings and even  volunteer to be members on any  committees which need non-  politicians.

All these groups see the need  for increasing co-op<eration to  improve their total services to  the community and to avoid  duplicating thdr efforts.  One option being considered  is a new collaborative society  that could be the formal  mechanism for co-operative action for health on the Sunshine  Coast. It would have initial  responsibility and authority to  allocate new health care dollars  to develop new co-ordituMd  programs and services, and to  plan for hialth care services on  the Coast. It would not replace  any of the existing societies or  boards but would have a wider  focus on the total health care  issues of the area.  The society would also have a  mandate to negotiate with all  health care societies and physicians on the Coast to see if there  could be a better system of  health care management for the  area.  The Royal Commission on  Health Care and Health Care  Costs is looking at the big picture for the whole province but  on the Coast, the new society  will be interested in hearing  ideas from the public.

Rd.. Gibsons Landing  'Afy mother, who is in her  seventies, has been told she  has osteoporosis, and I am  worried that my daughter  and I may develop it too. Is  there anything we can do?"  Osteoporosis is a condition in  which bone mass decreases to  the point that fracturing occurs  with very little stress Although it  is usually seen in .people over  60years of age it can occur al  any age. .Bones are continuously undergoing a process of  remodelling Calcium, which  gives bones their strength, is also  needed for a .great number of  other processes m ihe body The  skeleton, in addition to its role as  a framework for the body, acts as  a storage depot for calcium and  releases it into the blood stream  if it is needed elsewhere Bone is  constantly being rebuill, too. as  the body undergoes the wear and  tear of normal living The processes of bone formation and  breakdown continue constantly,  and normally are tn a close balance Osteoporosis results when  this balance becomes disrupted.  and the rate of bone break down  exceeds trie rate oi bone lorma  non The spine, hip and forearm  tend to be the most common k>  cation for Irjctures lo occur  Often, curvatures of the spine  and a loss ol height will be seen  The causes ofosleoporo-  sisarenot well understood.  The skeleton normally begins to  lose mass between 40 and  50 years ol age This breakdown  D'em Bones  occurs at a faster rate in women  than in men People who  drink a lot of coffee, or are  heavy .smokers appear to  be more likely to suffer  from osteoporosis that  those who do not, and people who exercise regularly  have a lower risk of developing osteoporosis than  do those who lead a sedentary lifestyle. Heredity also  plays a role.  Calcium supplements can stop  the disease from progressing.  and hormones such as estrogen  are useful in some cases of os  teoporosis in women, but neither  of these will cure the disease  Clearly, the best "cure'' for  osteoporosis is prevention.  This means maintaining a  healthy diet which includes  800 to 1000 mg of calcium  per day for adults or 600 to  800 mg per day in children,  and getting regular exercise. These measures should be  startecd al a young age. preferably  while the body is still growing, in  order to ensure that skeletal calcium stores are adequate to withstand the effects of aging  Dairy products are the  best source of calcium, one  cup ot milk contains about  300 mg of calcium. Dark .green  vegetables such as broccoli, or  spinach, and fish such as salmon  or sardines are also .good sources  of calcium Calcium supplements may be used if it is  not possible to get adequate  calcium from the diet Calcium carbonate is easiest to ab  sorb, and contains the highest  percentage of elemental calcium  Adequate amounts of  vitamin D are needed in  order for the body to use  calcium, A daily intake of 200  to 400 units per day is sufficient  to aid with calcium absorption.  The body Is able lo manufacture  vitamin D In the presence of sunlight, and it has been .added to  milk and cereal products Most  multivitamin preparations also  contain vitamin D, but you  should not exceed the dosage  recommended on the label, because too much vitamin D can be  harmful Not all calcium supplements are equal.

The shoppers  were happy and so were we!  Everyone worked so hard to  make it a success and thank you  all for your generosity.  The concert on November 18  was a joy to hear. There are  many hours of rehearsal that go  into a performance. The audience enjoys the concert when  the performers have a good time  singing and the 69ers sing with a  smile in their voices.  The 69ers can be heard on  November 28 at the Kiwanis  Village Care Home and then  again at Trail Bay Mall on  December 15 at 1 pm.

Mr. Petronek will be on the  Coast under the aegis of the  Global Action Plan (GAP), and  one of his two speeches will, in  fact, involve itself solely with  the GAP. This address can be  heard at 1 pm, while Petronek's  address on remineralization will  begin at 2 pm.  Although Petronek is considered an expert in many environmental fields, and assisted  in the compilation of the Green  Plan from Environment  Canada, his "greatest passion"  is soil remineralization.  This  subject  bears  special  relevance to the Sunshine Coast  since clearcut logging results in  soil erosion or "demineraliza-  tion." The process of remineralization involves the use  of rockdust (finely crushed  rock) in combination with  organic waste, which results in  the refurbishing of the essential  micro-organisms in the soil.

Coast News, November 19,1990  HALFMOON BAY HAPPfTMIMT.S  Farewell to Ethel Kippin  by Ruth Forrester, 885-2418  It came as a great shock to  many to learn of the sudden  death of a well known and  much loved Redrooffs lady,  Ethel Kippin.  It was Ethel, who, in 1983  formed the Suncoast Fighters  Stroke Club to which she  dedicated herself completely,  giving inspiration and hope to  those who needed such support.  Her husband Jim was the victim  of a stroke and Ethel made up  her mind that, with help and encouragement, Jim could re-  learn many of his functions  disabled by the stroke.  As an example, she taught  him how to use her knitting  machine and Jim turned out  shawls for sale in the hospital  auxiliary gift shop.  Every member of the Stroke  Club was speecial to Ethel, as she  was to them.  The Kippins had formerly  spent years as keepers of the  lighthouse on Merry Island, and  following retirement they spent  part of each year in Mexico  where Jim voluntarily gave of  his skills as a prostebcsist, making and repairing artificial limbs  for those unable to afford them.  Ethel is survivetd by her loving  husband Jim, a son Daryl and  two grandchildren, and by her  mother, Daisy Marfel of  Greenecourt.  Tributes were made by her  many good friends at an afternoon tea at Greenecourt on  Sunday. There are many who  will miss this good lady, and, on  their behalf we extend our sympathies to Ethel's family.  AUXILIARY MEETING  There was much planning of  activities at the November  meeting of the Halfmoon Bay  For Vern  by Ruth Forrester  It is just about one year ago  that we had to face the cruel and  tragic loss of a man who was a  good friend and inspiration to  those of us who worked with  him.  Vern Elliott was a master of  his craft, photography, and we  at the Coast News .became  dependent on him to produce  excellent pictures every week.  We were inclined to take it for  granted that Vern did this and it  wasn't until we lost him that we  ���ealized just how much this  good man had meant to us.  The reason that I dwell upon  his death is that I have much to  thank him for, and wish that he  Drop oTI your  COAST NEWS  was still with us. I thank V<ern  for having given me the inspiration to try to, in a very humble  way, follow in his footsteps by  taking up photography to try to  fill in some of the blanks he left.  The high standard of his  work may never be achieved,  but one can only keep trying.  That is one reason I wish he  could still be with us. There are  so many questions which he  could have answered and I  know that he would have been  happy to have helped a novice  in any way he could.  I also know that it would  have pleased Vern to know that  I was giving it a try. I am glad  too that, while he was with us,  he was aware of how much he  was admired and appreciated  for his work.  This humble, gentle, good  man was very dear to us and is  still missed, hence this little  tribute to his memory.  May He Rest In Peace.  Hospital Auxiliary held in  Welcome Beach Hall. Beautiful  items of handmade crafts were  on display. These and many  more items will Ik available at  the Annual Christmas Bazaar to  be held in Trail Bay Mall on  December 10.

IN 1971 EDITH McDONALD enquired about sending a Christmas gift of orchids to her  aunts in rural Ontario. To her dismay she was unable to. To compensate her  disappointment, Edith and her husband Len decided to help out a needy family. They  contacted a minister and he found a family. Edith and Len were given the number and ages of  the family's children. They then prepared a hamper for a Christmas dinner and gifts for the  children. The minister delivered the hamper and Len and Edith were never told the name of  the family.  IN 1972 THE McDONALDS decided to form a non-profit society and the Elves Club began. Today the Elves Club  follows the same format based on the generosity of volunteer help, wilh the area covered now reaching from Egmont to  Port Mellon. The mediator receives the hamper applications, and then assigns numbers to the names. The number and ages  of children are recorded and the hampers are made up with gifts added. The hampers are delivered and no one else learns the  name of the family. The number of hampers delivered each year fluctuates with 360 delivered last year. The average cost per  hamper is S70 ��� 100.  IF YOU OR ANYONE you know wishes a hamper please fill out the Hamper Application Form in this paper and mail  to the Elves Club, P.O. Box 1107, Gibsons, B.C., VoN IVO. Remember the application deadline is December 7th. If  you have any questions regarding the Hamper Application, call Lil Pariseau, Mediator, at 886-7443.

EGMONT NEWS  Stormy Egmont November  The Sunshine Coast Highway at Wood Bay is Anally back In ac  tion.  ���Am Cook pholo  by Writ Percy, 883-9206  Heavy rains, warm temperatures and stormy conditions  in general reigned supreme over  our neck of the woods last  week.  The Egmont Road was flooded as were some homes and  other sites, because of high  water levels. Looking up Jervis  Inlet, the mountains are almost  bare of snow again and raging  creeks have appear^ like silver  veins on the steep slopes. The  salt water is murky and full of  debris, so all boaters keep a  slurp eye out.  It's a little worrisome to be  having all these problems at the  beginning of the rainy season.  We can only hope it won't get  worse.  The winter waterfowl have  taken up residence in and  around Egmont. A family of  loons have moved in near us;  there are the Canada Geese, of  course, and flocks of other  birds are reportedly living comfortably throughout Ihe area.  Obviously these critters are the  only ones around who are enjoying all this precipitation!  Have you ever wanted to  learn how to spin wool, weave  or make rag rugs? Well, look no  further than the Egmont  School. On most Wednesdays,  between 1 and 3 pm, Heather  Fearn will be there, ready to  teach these skills to anyone who  is interested. Now that the  school has bseen converted to a  living room as comfortable as  anyone's, drop in, and, even if  you're not a crafty type, you  can enjoy some satellite TV or  just visit and chat. By the way,  another pat on the back to those  elves who transformed the  school into its present state.  Amazing!  On Saturday, November 24,  (that's this Saturday) the Egmont Lions and the Egmont  Community Club are holding a  Benefit Pot Luck Dinner at the  Community Hall. That will be  at 6:30 pm and donations are  gratefully accepted.  The Egmont Community  Club is in dire need of  Christmas ornaments so when  you go through your boxes of  stuff, keep them in mind if you  have any extras. Drop them off  at the school rather than the hall  so as not to confuse them with  items for the Thrift Store.  Speaking of the Thrift Store,  the ladies there are looking for  children's toys to add to their  stock. While you're going  through all that Christmas  stuff, you might as well do your  kids' toy box(es) too. Also, on  Saturdays, bring in your baked  goods or if you have anv items  to sell on consignment, bring  them in too.  Kid Kelly is responsible for  the painting started in the entrance to the Community Hall.  You should drop in to see this  work of art in progress. It's  pretty neat.  WRAP IT UP FOR  CHRISTMAS  Girl Guides' soap environmentally safe  "Girl Guides is concerned  about the stewardship of  Canada's number one resource-  water", reports Joan Howell,  Chief Commissioner of Girl  Guides of Canada���Guicte du  Canada. "We are pleased to announce that Girl Guide Soap is  available now in limited quantities from your local Girl  Guides".  Produced exclusively for the  Guiding Organization, the environmentally safe soap is made  from 100 per cent vegetable  soap base, with no animal  tallow, oil or petro chemicals  for fragrance or colour. It is  non-detergent and biodegradable and does not subject  any animal to product testing.  The soap is a family skin care  product packaged in boxes  made from recycled paper,  without cellophane or plastic  wrap.  According to Howell, "Girl  Guides have always been concerned about the outdoors,  about water, about conservation. We have always been sensitive to the impact that human  beings have on their natural environment. Girl Guide Soap  enables everyone in Canada to  join us and become part of Girl  Guides' on-going environmental activities."  Girl Guide Soap will be  available at the Elphinstone  District Bake Side in Sunnycrest  Mall on November 4, or from  your neighbourhood Brownie,  Guide or Pathfinder.

Skogstad told Directors that a  $25,000 grant had been received  for the purpose. "We applied  for $40,000" she said, "but  were not able to get that much,  so during this past summer we  hired students to do some  preliminary information gathering.  "This has all been loaded into  the computer, and will cut down  on the work that the consultant  will have to do."  The lakes to be studied include Paq, Hotel, Mixal,  Waugh, Garden Bay, North,  Ruby, Sakinaw and McNeil.  "We didn't include Catherine  Lake, because we own it, and  the other lakes are under the  jurisdiction of Forestry," ex  plained Skogstad.  "It might be useful to have  that kind of information on  Catherine Lake too," rom-  mented Director Gordon  Wilson, and the other Directors  agreed.  "This is a really important  study," said Skogstad,  "because what we are asking  the consultants to do is to bring  back to us recommendations on  land uses and the development  control that should be in place  around our lakes in Area A.  "We hope it will provide us  with some pretty heavy duty  technical information that  would feed into our community  plan and for implementation of  zoning by-laws.  "We will be asking the consultants to make a report to the  residents and to the Area A  APC as was done with the Halfmoon Bay geotechnical study.  We are looking to the hue summer of 1991 for finalization of  the project."

"We're unique," president  Elva Dinn told the meeting.  "Most of the other 54 chapters  are run, and most of the work is  done, by parents of CF victims.  They have to care for their  children and find time to raise  funds for research. The closest  connection we have in our  chapter is grandparents."  Elva thanked the many contributors for their work and  donations and announced the  latest contribution by Liz  Mitten-Ryan. Before presenting  her latest painting to the foundation, Liz talked about the  tremendous importance of raising money for further research  now that scientists are so close  to finding a cure for this  disease.  'Harmony of Purpose' was  unveiled amidst wild applause.  This is the second painting the  artist has donated to the foundation and all revenue from the  sale of prints and art cards will  go to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.  Another work of art was also  shown to the members ��� a 12  minute video produced by the  Kellett family from Prince  George about life in a family  with two CF children. The production was both moving and  informative and Elva Dinn  commented that it was the best  information video she has s��n  on the subject.  Elva also introduced Janaya  Evans, a 12 year old from Davis  Bay School who wants to  organize a 'Kids Support  Group' for this chapter.  "This disease kills kids,"  Janaya commented, "so kids  should be helping to fight it."  lllana Holloway gave an update on fundraising strategies  for the future and emphasized  the responsibility that falls to  this chapter. She pointed out  that because none of the  members of the chapter are living with children suffering from  CF, it is up to this chapter to  provide the initiative and the  energy for national fundraising.  Treasurer Ellie Simkins announced that the chapter has  raised $33,700 since May. While  much of that money has gone to  paying for the printing of Liz  Mitten-Ryan's first donated  painting 'Toward the Promise',  all those costs have now been  covered. All future revenues will  be clear profit for the foundation.

The Sunshine  Second Section  Story off a survivor  Gallant and prolonged battle against Cystic Fibrosis  by Row Nicholson  "There's a lot of talk for and  against abortion. If I knew I  was carrying a child with CF I  would definitely abort it. I  would have preferred that my  parents had done that, but they  didn't have that choice. It's  hard enough going through life,  without that added problem."  For most people the act of  breathing is something they  seldom give any thought to, but  for Colleen Kohse the ability to  breathe normally is still  somewhat of a novelty.  Colleen, a vivacious and  petite blonde, has Cystic  Fibrosis (CF). Two and a half  years ago, when she was twenty-  nine years old, she had a double  lung and heart transplant which  has enabled her to live, if not  totally normally, at least to live,  and not to fight for every  breath. "If I hadn't had the  transplant when I did, I would  have been dead in six months,"  she said.  In an interview with the  Coast News at the home of artist Liz Mitten-Ryan, Colleen  and Elva Dinn, (whose six year  old granddaughter Laura has  CF) described what it is like to  live with the disease.  CF is a hereditary disease that  affects one in every 1800  children in Canada. The glands  of the CF victim produce excessive amounts of sticky mucus  that clog the lungs and inhibit  the function of the digestive  system. Until recently, children  with CF seldom lived past their  late teens, but medical science is  slowly making progress, and  organ transplants such as Colleen's have given extra'years to  some.  Colleen had to go to England  for her transplant operation,  because at that time the double  lung/heart transplant could not  be done in Canada. She explained that the dual procedure is  more effective than just a lung  transplant, "even though there  was nothing wrong with my  heart. They were able to give my  heart to someone else, a young  man from Greece."  "An Egyptian doctor, Dr.  MagUi Yacoub, performed the  operation. He's a wonderful  man. He works at five different  hospitals doing nothing but  transplants. Recently he peer-  formed his thousandth transplant.  "People make jokes about  doctors playing God. They say  Dr. Yacoub is God playing doctor."  "But transplants are not the  whole answer," said Colleen.  "There is always the problem of  finding a suitable donor, and a  lot of us have been through so  much we have damage in other  areas.  "We have problems with  drugs. We've been on so many  we develop resistances or  allergies and you have problems  with that after transplants.  Transplants have helped a lot of  people, but it's something you  only use as a last resort. Some  experimental work has been  done using animal organs but a  lot more needs to be known  about differences between  animal and human tissues."  A major breakthrough came  last year when scientists isolated  the gene responsible for tarrying CF.  "Genetics is obviously the  way to go," said Coheen. "But  what if that takes 10 or 20  years? In 10 or 20 years, most of  the people I know today with  CF will not be alive. Then there  are those who are not well  enough to benefit from genetics. You have to have a lung  left to work wi'h. You can't put  it into a lung that is ravaged  with disease.  "Hopefully one day they  won't have to do anything as  radical as transplants, but at the  moment, it's the only thing we  have. Otherwise, if you had CF  and you were in the last stages,  you knew you were going to die,  Please turn to page 24  Colleen Kohse talks about the double lung-heart transplant that  has enabled her to survive her battle with Cystic Fibrosis.  ���Ro* Nkkohoa photo  PRE-GST     ^rices  TOTAL    tjgj.

Coast News, November 19,1990  LI6LRL  PAGES  fr 1 \m  Towards Queen Charlottes  by Peter Trower  One hundred and fifty islands  make up the archipeegalo, tanging in size from substantial land  masses to lonely dots of rock,  inhabited only by seabirds.  They cluster in the shape of a  broken tusk, between SO to 130  kilometres from the BC  mainland. In 1778, early fur  trader, Captain George Dixon  named them the Queen Charlottes, after the prolific wife of  George 111. To the arboriginal  inhabitants who have made  their home there for centuries,  the islands have always been  known as Haida Gwaii. Over  the years they have been known  by other names ��� The Mist  Isles ��� The Galapagos of the  North.

No matter what you  choose to call them however,  the islands are one of the most  unique areas in BC, possessed  of a compelling magic���a world  apart.  In recent years, the Charlottes have been the centre of much  controversy. Most of it has centred around Moresby Island,  smaller of the two main land  forms. The native population  have come to actively resent the  intrusion of loggers into their  former homeland, site of many  abandoned village*:. The situation boiled over in 1985 when  militant Haidas blockaded the  logging roads on Lyell Island to  prevent further clear-cutting.  Some of the natives were arrested and jailed, but their  demonstrations were not in  vain. Ottawa took note of the  situation and in July, 1988,  south Moresby was officially  declared a national park. The  forestry companies were awarded $106,000,000 in compensation for relinquishing their logging rights and an additional  $50,000 was alloted to a fund  for tourist development.  Reaction to the new protected  status of the south Moresby  timber stands have been mixed.  While the majority of the  islanders feel it is a good thing,  there are some who hold different feelings. Most of them  are connected with the logging  industry. They cite the loss of  many jobs and the minor  depression that has hit Sandspit,  Moresby Islands' only settlement. The town has lost one  quarter of its 500 odd population since the parks bill was  made law, and several businesses have closed.  The Haida have yet to sign  any sort of agreement, fearing it  might jeopardize their claim to  native land rights. As far as they  are concerned, the bill is only a  stopgap solution. They consider  the Charlottes to be their country. In February, 1989, they  unveiled a flag proclaiming their  autonomy as a separate country. It waves proudly over the  band offices in the main native  settlements of Skidegate and  Haida.  A group of Haidas recently  promoted their cause on the international  stage.   Artist   Bill  Reid had organized the tour to  publicize native culture. It took  the canoe Loo Toss (Wave  Eater) and its crew, to France.  While paddling down the Sane  en route to Paris, the Haidas  lowered the Canadian flag and  defiantly raised thdr own. Their  action did not sit well with the  Canadian Government which  had financed the tour.  On an overcast Sunday in  early October, we board the car  ferry, Queen of Ihe North and  set out for the Charlottes.  Storm force winds have been  predicted for Hecate Strait.  Fortifying ourselves with  Gravol, we prepare for the  worst.  Once we leave the sheltering  islands beyond Prince Rupert,  the sea certainly becomes bumpy. Every so often, a wave jolts  the ship with a shuddering  thump. But the storm-force  winds fail to materialize. After  about six and a half houre, the  ferry docks at Skidegate Landing on the south end of Graham  Island. We drive to Queen  Charlotte City, about a mile to  ihe west and set up base camp in  a motel.  to be continued...  a  CHRISTMAS POTTERY  SALE  at Forst Pottery  with Pat Forst & Gale Woodhouse  DOOR PRIZE - Friday Night  Fri., Nov. 30: 7pm-10pm  Sat., Dec. 1: 10am-6pm  Sun., Dec. 2:   10am-6pm  Potter takes Lowndes Award  The Centennial Singers  in  A Christmas Concert  Music fcy Bach and others  Also appearing ��� S.D. 046 Choir  Saturday, Dec. 1st, 8 pm  St. Hilda's Anglican Church  TICKETS: 16.50 il MnnadineV Shin. ��� Gihawia  A Talewind Boob. ��� Seebell  This year the Sunshine Coast  Arts Council is presenting the  9th Annual Gillian Lowndes  Memorial Award to Gibsons  potter Gale Woodhouse.  The award, created in 1981 in  memory of a young dancer and  then vice-president of the arts  council, is given to an artist who  has shown innovation and/or  recent growth or achievement.  It has been awarded for theatre,  writing, sculpture, painting and  music. This is the first time a  craftsperson has received the  award.  Although Gale Woodhouse  has primarily been a domestic  stoneware potter, her work in  the last 12 months has marked a  departure from this field. Experiments with oil pastels and  other mixed media surface  decoration and primitive firing  techniques have culminated in a  series of non-functional pieces  such as masks.  Gale's work has recently been  on display at Hunter Gallery in  lower Gibsons.

Weep for our forests  by John  There is a graphic rwar the  end of the book Three Mea and  ��� Forester by Ian Mahood and  Km Drushka which says it all  for those with ears to hear, it  shows the net public revenues  derived from forestry per cubic  metre of wood logged in all US  national forests, in those US national forests adjacent to BC,  and the net public revenue  derived per cubic metre of logging after expenses in this province. It is to weep.  In all US national forests net  public revenue after expenses  per cubic metre is shown as $16;  in US national forests adjacent  to BC net revenue is given as  $10.53 peer cubic metre; in the  province of British Columbia  the 'harvesting' of our most  valuable natural resource, going  on at the present time ahead of  land claims and public awareness at a rate never before seen,  returns two cents per cubic  metre of timber taken.  Folks, that is a return to the  taxpayer of British Columbia  which is just one five-hundredth  of the lowest comparable US  figure.  The  dust  jacket   of  this  readable and provocative book,  published by the Coast's own  Harbour Publishing, tells us  that Mahood is a professional  forester of some SO yeare standing who has worked with  many of the figures instrumental in shaping BC's current  forest policy. He has been a  manager with MacMillan Bloedel, vice-president and director  of Triangle Forest Products,  and a vice-president of the BC  Council of Forest Industries. In  short, Mahood has been where  the action is and the decisions  made.  Mahood and Drushka take us  through Mahood's early days in  the forests in the 1930's in  breezy and often entertaining  fashion. The going gets a little  heavier as they begin to outline  the series of disastrous policies  which drove the logger off the  land and the control of BC  forests ever more surely into the  control of boardrooms in  Toronto, Tokyo and New  York���and the heavy going is  not the fault of the authors but  of the wrenching stupidity with  which this province and its  governments have treated this  incomparable resource over the  past 35 years.  "...And it is not as if we were  not warned. Thirty-five years  ago, H.R. MacMillan said that  it would be a sorry day when  BC's forest industry consists of  a few big companies holding  most of the timber, to the  disadvantage and early extermination of the most hardworking, virile, versatile, and  ingenious element of our  population, the independent  mark�� logger and small mill  man.'"  This book is an account of  how corrupt foresters undw the  control of foreign corporations  and corrupt bureaucrats under  the control of visionless and  stupid politicians have gone a  long wiy down the road to ruining the birthright of British Columbians.  Today we see loggers and Indians facing each other in  hostility over the dwindling  forests and the truth of the matter is that both are having their  birthright stolen with the connivance of their governors.  If you care to know how the  tragic dilemma that awaits us  has come about, read this  book���and, yes, weep tears of  sadness and rage.  Activities at the Arts Centre  On Saturday morning,  November 24, .Shirley Kuciuk  will lead a program of folk dancing for children five years old  and up at the Arts Centre in  Sechelt. This workshop will introduce the children to traditional ethnic dance and also give  them the opportunity to create  their own dancets.  Shirley, a teacher at Sechelt  Elementary, lias been involved  in folk dancing for 25 years and  has taught these dances to  children for 16 years.

The cost is  $3 for each child or $8 per family. Thank you to the Sunshine  Coast Credit Union for their  sponsorship of this event.  Juried Show  The 12th Annual Juried  Show contains work by Kathryn  Warn, Maurice Spira, Trudy  Small, Bob Sellmer, Ole Pii,  Gary Kelly, Katie Janyk, Pat  Hammond, Greta Guzek, Brit-  Dfop oil your  COAST NIWS  ton Francis, Susan Fletcher, Vivian Chamberlin, Audrey  Buchanan and Jan Bryant.  With so much good work it is  hard to decide on a favourite so  perhaps an anecdote will be of  interest to the patient reader.  An older woman viewing the exhibition stoppetd in front of  Maurice Spira's "If I Show  Her...", read aloud the inscription of which the title is a part,  and said thoughtfully "This  piece is quite humorous. Several  of these pieces are humorous. If  I'd known there was humorous  work in this show I'd have been  here sooner. You should tell  people there's humorous work  here."  As indeed there is. There is  also a smattering of  art-for-art's-sake, a tiny bit of  angst, a fair helping of serene  gazing and a dollop of innocent  whimsy, along with several  other manifestations of the  human soul.  The show is in its last week.  Gallery hours are Wednesday to  Saturday, 11 to 4 and Sunday 1  to 4.  Pandar Hafbou.  "A Prttndly Ppopt* Placa"  Rockwood Centre  presents  LYALL NANSON, F.C.A.

A  hearty welcome to all the  bonspielers. The attendance was  good with a full slate of 32  men's teams participating,  many from the lower mainland,  Vancouver Island, and one  team from as far away as Seattle.  For those with friends in  Powell River or Squamish,  there is always a fair representation from those two communities. It is a good thr.ee days  of fun starling on Friday night  and continuing until Sunday.  We are still looking for spare  curlers to play in the seniors  (over 50) mixed league. Il is a  daytime league, on a Tuesday or  Friday afternoon. If you are in-  teerested, drop by the club or  phone your name in to John,  our icemaker. He is at the rink  almost every week night and the  number to call is 886-7512. We  are pleased to pass along the  word that four seniors' teams  are participating in the Powell  River spiel on November 21.  Good luck fellows, hope you  bring home some hardware.  We still have room for three  more mixed teams on Wednesday nighl and a few more people on Friday night. Friday  night is a fun league with many  beginners. II is a good night to  start playing the game. If you  can't put in a regular day every  week but would like to curl, we  have a spare board that is nice  to keep full. We guarantee you  will get a game or two a week if  you  put  your name on the  board. Anyone in the community is welcome. Come up and  join us, we are sure you will love  our club. It is a good way to enjoy the long winter evenings and  it sure is good for the cardiovascular system.  A note from the executive to  all curlers; could you please  refrain from tracking dirt onto  the ice since it causes a lot of extra work for the icemaker and  his crew. One way to keep the  ice clean is to have a pair of  shoes just for curling and be  sure to use the boot cleaner  before going out onto the ice.  They would also like you to  know that the Curl Canada  clinics are over for this season.  We would like to lhank the  volunteers who come out to  help make ice. They worked  very hard to Ret the ice readv for  the bonspiel this weekend and  they put in a lot of time on a  regular basis. Thanks gang.  We would also like to thank  the kitchen help, the bar crew,  the phoners, our carpenter, the  executive, and anyone else who  I forgot to mention.  I hope everyone had a good  time this weekend and although  you all have to rush away to  make a ferry on Sunday, we  look forward to seeing you all  again when the mixed spiel  takes place in February.  **fc  Where affordable luxury has become a reality  You'll never believe you're in the heart of  Gibsons when you gaze at the acres of lawn  and trees which surround you.

WHEREAS the use of  pesticides in this community in  the forests is of great public  concern, environmental concern  and a potential public health  concern;  WHEREAS numerous  pesticides (eg., DDT, Endrin,  Phosvel, EDB, DBCP) have  ebeen banned only after years of  use in Canada, and only after  belated scientific documentation of the health and environmental hazards associated  with such peesticides;  WHEREAS a majority of  pesticides in use today have not  ���been comprehensively tested for  their potential human health effects, and such comprehensive  health testing will not be completed for many years;  WHEREAS studies have  demonstrated that numerous  pesticides in use today are  potential human carcinogens,  mutagens, teratogens, and  neurotoxic agents;  WHEREAS the amount of  pesticide residue, inert ingredients and potential contaminants from the manufacturing process (eg., dioxins,  dioxanes, PCBs) may have an  as yet undetermined future  detrimental health effect upon  members of the community;  WHEREAS pesticide usage  contributes to such enviommeen-  tal problems as the elimination  of beneficial species, the  degradation and erosion of soil,  and the contamination of surface and ground waters;  THEREFORE BE IT  RESOLVED:  I. That the Ministry of Forests  in this community examine  alternative to pesticide use that  employ other methods of brash  control such as manual clearing,  animal grazing, bark stripping  (girdling) and early replanting/advanced growth planting.  2. That this policy be applied to  the whole of the forestry area,  not only adjacent to populated  areas, as recreational use and  water supplies may be affected  throughout the forest management area.  3. That, in view of the fact that  forestry use of pesticide is only a  small portion of total peesticidc  use, personal use in the home  and garden as well as other  agricultural use be discouraged,  and alternative methods of pest  control be encouraged.

For example a person who  stipulates "no children" as a  condition ol rental would be In  violation of the Family Status and  the Human Rights Acts. The  landlord who places the advertisement and the newspapei  which publishes it would both be  in contiavention of Ihe legislation  and could have a complaint tiled  against them.

Editor's Note: A copy of the  M   received   for  Mr. J. Barry Mountain  Dtstrkt Manager  Sunshine Coast Forest District  7077 Duncan Street  Powdl River, BC  V8A 1WI  Dear Barry:  I would like to thank you for  your open and flexible response  to the concerns of the citizens of  the .Sunshine Coast regarding  pesticide use in this forest  district.  As I stated at the public  meeting and discussed with you  afterwards, my concern is that  there may be effects from  pesticides and/or the contaminants formed during production  of  those   pesticides  which may not even be recognized by anyone involved in,  the testing procedures or in the  medical community.  As you are aware, previous  pesticides have been pulled  from the market at a later date  when unknown effects became  recognized. Until those effects  are recognized it is impossible,  of course, to test for them.  Because these effects may be  quite subtle and only be  recognized when large numbers  of people are affected, which  starts to show a statistically  significant association, there  could be significant damage  done prior to the use being  halted.  You asked me to let you  know what the BCMA En  vironmental Committee's policy  statements were. The BCMA  Committee has largely looked at  the pesticide use in agriculture.  A policy has been produced  which is very largely reflected in  the accompanying motion passed by the St. Maiy's Hospital's  medical staff unanimously at a  recent meeting. That policy and  the motion that we passed  points out the put problems  with subsequent banning of  pesticides after they had been in  wide-spread use, and points out  the unknown factors which we  still are incapable of assessing.  In our local motion we have applied these principles to forestry  use, but the principles remain  unchanged essentially, apart  from the fact that the BCMA  Immersion causes division  Editor:  At the All Candidates  Meeting for Sechelt School  Trustees last November IS, it  was again apparent that the  narrow-minded issue of the  French language teaching raised  its ugly head.  It seems that this country,  this province, the school boards  and the parents are focusing on  the short term issue regarding  teaching   of   the   French  The only thing it does is to bring the worst out in people,  resulting in court battles.  Whether we like it or not, we  are in a global market place. We  are driving Japanese cars with  French tires, wearing a jacket  made in Korea.  If this country is to survive  and compete in this global  market place, we had better  wake up and teach our future  leaders to integrate with the  world.  Those parents that insist on  French immersion, should consider moving to Quelxc. It is a  nice place to work and your  children will g�� the immersion  and the French culture all at the  same time. It will also be good  for the mom and dad.  It is v,sry easy. You don't  need a visa (yet), no immigration papers are required. Just  get a U-haul.  If our future is to be bright,  we will need to teach more than  just the French language. There  are markets opening up in Mexico, Latin America, Japan,  Europe and China. For the last  40 years the Europeans have  educated their young people in  all the languages required to  secure the future.  I am looking forward to our  young people to have a vision  for the future, and hope they  won't learn from our narrow-  minded attitude.  With kind regards and respect for those that are called  for the task of school trustee.  Adrian Hovesiad  Sechelt, BC  Complete phone service?  Editor:  Re: BC Telephone one way  Vanrouver phone line.  Many of us who have lived  on the Sunshine Coast for some  time will remember the last vote  concerning 'no charge' calling  on the Coast. I had hoped the}  whole Coast from Egmont to  Port  Mellon would vote to  become toll-free. The failure to  do so did not help bond the  Coast together.  The recent proposals were  long rumoured to provide toll-  free calling to the 'Vancouver'  region. What we see instead is a  greatly increased monthly  charge for one-way calling that  does not include North or Went  Vancouver, Richmond or New  Westminster. This proposal is a  slap in the face, a three-legged  horse tied to a post. I urge the  residents of the Sunshine Coast  to demand a complete phone  service and consider their  neighbours before voting for  this change.

I would point out that in the  motion we have recognized that  forestry use is only one part of  the overall problem and we have  also .resolved that we should encourage home owners ud  fanners alike to reduce or  eliminate petsticide usage in the  community.  While we realize that this is  only one small comer of the  province and of the world, we  have to start in our own community. We plan to encourage  other communities in BC and  other medical staffs in BC to act  in a similar fashion, thereby  multiplying the gains we have  made here. I think it is exciting  to be involved at the forefront  of any progressive endeavour,  and it is a great pleasure to deal  with someone in forestry who is  responsive to a community's  needs and, indeed, to the overall  environmental welfare of the  world at large.  Thank you, again, for your  positive approach to these concerns.  Dr. B. Myhill-Jones  .Editor's Note: Sm Page 19 for  motion referred to above.  TERMINAL  ForestProductsLtd.

Coast News, November 19,1990  Gallant battle against Cystic Fibrosis  Continued from page 13  and there was nothing that  could help you. But now you  know that if you can have a  transplant you can survive. It  keeps people going. Cure is a  vague term. Control is more  possible. I'm not cured. I still  have CF, but my lungs now  work."  Living with CF has affected  the way Colleen thinks about  many things. Prenatal tests now  make it possible to identify the  disease at very early stages ol  pregnancy. "Children needn't  be bom now with CF," she  said.  When asked by the Coast  News why little was heard about  Ihe disease until recently. Colleen explained that it was most  often misdiagnosed and childhood deaths were attributed to  things like pneumonia. Her own  mother had a child, born a few  years before Colleen, who died  when a year old, and doctors  Guess Where  The usual prize of $5 will lie awarded to the first correct entry  drawn which locates the above. Send your entries to reach Ihe  Coast News, Box 460, Gibsons by Saturday of this week. Last  week's winners were the Division 14 Class of students al Gibsons  Elemental? School who correctly guessed Dougal Park-  now believe that it may have  had CF. Another sister with CF  died at sixteen, yet an older  brother and sister are healthy.  "Those days it was rare to  have a CF child that lived very  long. One doctor told my  mother not to try therapy for  me because I wouldn't live very  long, but another gave more  hope and told her what therapy  to use.  "Having a child with CF  means you have to spend a lot  more time with care. It took  several hours of every day to go  through all my medication and  therapy routines. Even when  they are adults, a lot of cystics  slay home, and most of them  can't work.  "There have been a lot of  breakthroughs lately with CF,  which is great, but there's still a  lot of work to be done. It takes  a lot of time from developing  something in a lab to the point  when it can be used on a  human."  There is now a team in Vancouver that performs heart-lung  transplants, but "there's a  wating list because no organs  are available. CF patients have  small chests, they need an organ  from a child or a small person."  Living on the edge has helped  Colleen acquire a philosophy  that few people can match.  When she was in London lor  her operation she did all the  things that tourists do, because  "London was a great place to  be," she said. "You have to  take what you get and make the  most of it."  "Some cystics don't want to  associate with others because it  is so hard when they die," she  added.  "But 1 don't see it that way.  A lot of my friends have died  and I look back and say 'would  I rather not have known them at  all?' They were great people.  The girl I went to England with  died during her transplant  operation. We had such a great  time together, she was a super  person.  "She was the one that encouraged me to go to England. 1  would have gone anyway, but it  made it a lot easier to have  someone to go with. We were  both petrified together."  Colleen gives a lot of credit to  her family. Her mother went to  England with her, and she said  "To go through the transplant  you need strong family support.  1 haven't met anyone who survived transplant who didn't  have a really dedicated family  behind them."  She feels that attitude plays  an important role in the life of  people who have CF. "Cystics  seem to fall into two  categories," she commented.  "There are the ones who are  really apathetic and don't try to  do anything about it, and  they're the ones who usually  don't survive. Because we're  chronically ill, our families tend  to do too much for us and you  can end up with a person who is  totally dependent, either on the  hospital or thdr families. They  stay in the hospital all the time  and don't try to make friends.  "Others don't care if they  have CF. They have to do  things. I went to university.  Many times I've made myself  extremely sick because I just  had to do something and I  wouldn't listen) to the doctors or  my family."  Talking to Colleen is not, as  one might expect, a sad or  depressing experience. She is  practical and matter-of-fact  about living a literally moment-  to-moment existence, living a  life in which her most constant'  companion is her own mortality.  "You don't appreciate what  you've got until it's gone," Colleen said. "To others, being well  isn't something you have to  strive for. For us, being well is  something you have to work  hard at.  "Some cystics get compulsive  about it. They'll do something  like exercise all the time, hoping  to make themselves more healthy. But it's a progressive  disease."  Colleen lives with her family,  but travels a lot. "What happens when you get into a country where the medical system  isn't that great?" we asked.  "You choose where you go,"  she  replied.   "When   I   was  youngCT l went to the Orietnt,  but I took all my drugs and 1  fortunately didn't have any  problems while I was there.  "But you do have to be  careful, because you could end  up in some hospital where they  don't know what to do. There  are some places you shouldn't  go, places where they have  yellow fever for instance,  because you can't take those inoculations. You can't take any  live inoculations, because  you're immuno-suppressed.  You always carry your drugs  and letters from doctors."  Colleen does a lot of publicity  work "because I feel I have  been so fortunate and been  given so much, 1 want to put  something back.  "A lot of parents are pleased  to meet me, because I symbolize  hope for their children. The life  expectancy for cystics is being  extended all the time. There used to be only children at the  clinics, but now there are as  many adults as children."  Locally, the Sunshine Coast  Chapter of the Cystic Fibrosis  Association has dedicated its efforts to raising money for  research. Liz Mitten-Ryan has  allocated money from the sale  of her paintings to the local  fund, and members of the  Kinsman club have lent their efforts to the cause.
