Kevin Gibson is convinced that  acid rain is responsible.  Gibson spoke to a well attended meeting of the Forestry  Advisory Committee the night  of October 23. In his carefully  documented and researched  presentation, Gibson explained  what is happening.  A heavy concentration of  mills and other industrial installations in the northwest  region of the U.S. and the  southwest region of B.C. is  pouring millions of tons of  emissions into the atmosphere.  These emissions consist of a  variety of chemicals, but mainly  sulphur dioxide and nitrogen  dioxide.  Chemical reactions with atmospheric moisture turn these  emissions into acids like  sulphuric acid and nitric acid.  Eventually, through the action  of rain, snow, fog and dew,  these are washed into the  ground. This changes the acid,  or ph value of the soil.  When the acid intensity of the  soil gets below four on the ph  scale, metals that used to be  bound up chemically in a  harmless form are released and  become toxic to plants. Also,  when a certain level of acidity is  reached, the billions of micro-  organisms in the soil that sup-  port the complex plant chain  can no longer survive.  The soil becomes dead. The  whole plant chain is affected.  According to Gibson, this  critical level has been reached in  many areas on the Sunshine  Coast. He showed slides of dead  and dying firs, cedars, pines and  salal in readily accessible areas  of Sechelt, Gibsons, Highway  101 and Sechelt Inlet.  Gibson warned that this area  is particularly susceptible to acid  rain. The mountains form a  bowl shaped area that traps the  prevailing moist southeast  winds that carry emission-laden  atmosphere.  The process has been going  on for several years. It has ao  celerated in the last three years.  This is partly due to lower rainfall, which, in two of these  years, has been 30 percent less  than normal. During these drier  periods, dry fallout, or deposition, remains on the surface of  the ground.  Heavy fall rains suddenly  wash a much heavier concentration of the acids into the soil.  The result is the clearly visible  browning and dying of smaller  trees and underbrush, along  with severe stress for the larger  and older trees.  This heavier concentration of  acid eventually finds its way into the creeks and rivers and in  turn upsets the delicate  ecological 'balance of those  systems, resulting in an environment hostile to the whole chain  of the waterways, said Gibson.  Acid rain is a worldwide problem. It was first identified in  England about 100 years ago  when coal burning factories  poured such heavy concentrations of smoke into the atmosphere that at one point a  poisonous smog resulted in the  deaths of nearly 100 people.  The problem is severe in  heavily industrialized parts of  Europe, the U.S. and Eastern  Canada. There have been instances in some areas of the  U.S. where it has taken nearly  100 years before the soil would  again support vegetation.  Gibson and environmentalist  Carole Rubin both stressed that  because of global conditions,  the problem of acid rain is  ultimately a political one. It will  not be solved until individuals  put enough pressure on elected  officials to force action.  Gibson insists that the  technology already exists to  solve the problem. Emission  control and non-harmful energy  sources like electricity and solar  power could turn the problem  around.  But the time factor is critical.  If nothing is done, within 10  years, B.C.'s forests and water  systems could be damaged  almost beyond repair, he said.  The members of the Forestry  Advisory Committee passed a  motion insisting that a study be  done on local conditions and a  report be ready by January 1.  Sandy Hook ratepayers  angry about Seafarm dock  by Penny Fuller  A broken fence and churned up ground testify to ��� savage attack by loose dogs on a cornered horse. The  horse's struggles proved fatal and the owner Is calling for better dog control (see story bdow).  Horse killed by dog,  neighbours are fearful  ���Vern Elliott pholo  "It was horriblel Bandit, my  four-year-old horse, was completely tangled in our page wire  fence after being cornered by a  stray dog on our property,"  said Carmen Peters, a Chaster  Road resident of Gibsons.  "We called the vet as soon as  we discovered Bandit in the  morning. But by evening he had  begun to bleed from the nose  and we had difficulty waking  him," she said.  The horse had to be "put  down" October 17 after sustaining eye and leg damage and  a probable skull fracture.  Peters said she felt the dog  patrol doesn't begin early  enough in the morning to catch  the dogs that are let out by their  owners to run for the night.  "I have dogs, but mine are  kept tied during the day and  they are brought inside for the  night. I don't understand why  other owners let their dogs run  wild," she said.  SCRD dog control officer  Howard Byard investigated the  horse attack incident. He agreed  with Peters over the problem of  owners letting their dogs run for  ���the night.  "I have been out at 5:30 in  the morning and as late as 10  o'clock at night on patrol. I  have staggered my shifts, making each week different. But the  real answer to this problem lies  with the negligent owners," he  said.  As a result of the investigation, Byard has given Peters an  emergency number and enlisted  her help in a form of  neighborhood 'dog watch'.  "What I would really like to  see is more responsible owners.  These people don't realize that  Fido has a split personality."  "At home, the dog has a halo  around his head, he can do no  wrong. But when a dog gets  together with other dogs - well,  it's the difference between individual and mob mentality,"  he said.  Peters agrees and tells of a  neighbor who has taken to  walking with a baseball bat  after encountering dogs travelling in a group.  "I can't believe these owners  let their dogs out, unaware of  the tremendous damage their  pets are capable of doing. I  think they just don't care. My  beloved horse is dead now  because someone let Rover out  for the evening," she said.  All-candidate events  The Sechelt Chamber of Commerce is sponsoring an All  Candidates Meeting for the Federal Election in the Sechelt  Elementary School gym on November 3 at 7 pm.  The Sunshine Coast Labour Council is sponsoring an all-  candidates' meeting (federal) on Wednesday, November 9 at  7:30 pm at the Gibsons Elementary School gym.  All candidates have been asked to give their positions on  the subject of free trade. Come and meet your candidates.  Ask question. Get answers.  A dock constructed by  Aquarius Seafarms, at their  Gray Creek hatchery in Porpoise Bay, continues to be a  source of controversy at Sechelt  council meetings. October 19  Joyce Fitzpatrick of the Sandy  Hook Property Owners'  Association addressed the weekly council meeting to present a  list of concerns and observed  activities at the dock.  She complained of contravention of zoning regulations  in the area.  Earlier the same day, council  received a letter from its  solicitors. The letter concerned  appropriate legal action which  council might counsider.  However, most aldermen had  not had an opportunity to study  the letter. They were, therefore,  not prepared to state exactly  what steps they might be considering.  The dock became controversial as construction on it began,  earlier this fall, when no  building permit was obtained  for the work. Sechelt council  put a stop work order on the  project, but work continued.  After consultation with their  attorneys, Sechelt issued a  building permit to Aquarius  Seafarms. The standard penalty  was charged for construction  which is begun without a proper  permit.  Fitzpatrick told council her  association was frightened to  "think of the heavy industrial  use potential that could come to  fruition from this loading facility if left unregulated and un-  policed through bylaw enforcement."  According to the report made  to council, the activities  ratepayers said they observed at  the dock since August of this  year have included the installation of a helicopter pad and a  floating dock at the end of the  wharf. A Beaver float plane was  alleged to have practised several  landings at the dock.  On September 12, a commercial fishing boat was at the  dock, and two days later, a  helicopter landed on the pad,  council was told.  On September 10, a fish pen  was at the end of the dock and  fish were being loaded from the  pen to a tank truck. Sixteen  days later, an additional  floating dock was attached to  the end of the wharf, and the  next day a boat unloaded grey  boxes with a crane, which were  later loaded into a truck, the  property owner said.  When asked by Alderman  Mike Shanks exactly what the  objections were, apart from the  legalities, Fitzpatrick told him  that in addition to noise pollution and the esthetic disturbance, her association was concerned with, 'setting the  parameters of how far  something of this nature can go.  What is the nature of the Inlet?  Is it recreational, residential or  industrial?'  Alderman Joyce Kolibas  questioned district planner Ron  Sabine as to the advisability of  council meeting with Aquarius  to clarify their position now that  there is a change taking place  with senior management Sabine  said that such a meeting might  be wise.  Council agreed to study the  correspondence from its lawyer  and to arrange a meeting with  representatives from Aquarius  in the near future.  Members of the audience  asked council to make a committment to discuss the issue at  a public meeting. They were  promised that it would be the  first item of business of the  agenda for a planning committee meeting to be held on October 27 at 9:30 am.  PC fisheries  minister here  An announcement important  to the local area is expected  when Tom Siddon, federal  fisheries minister, arrives at  Gibsons Wharf Monday at  10:30 am. He'll be accompanied  by local Progressive Conservative federal candidate Michel  Rabu.  Sleep an extra hour  Sunshine Coasters are lucky, lucky, lucky Saturday night.  Everyone gets an extra hour's sleep as the community returns  to Standard Time for the weekend. Don't forget to turn your  clocks back an hour.  8 running for MP  Eight federal election candidates at press time had filed  their nomination papers for the  local Sunshine Coast riding of  North Island - Powell River.  The final deadline for nominations was to be this morning.  The returning officer said no  other nomination papers had  been taken out and therefore  there was no reason to expect  further candidates for the  riding.  The local candidates in  alphabetical order are:  Alan Warnke, Liberal Party,  of Powell River; Michael  Brown, Green Party, Powell  River; Ray Skelly, New  Democratic Party, Powell  River; John Krell, Christian  Heritage Party, Campbell  River; Michel Rabu, Progressive Conservative Party,  Campbell River; Nick Cher-  noff, Communist Party, Campbell River; Dodd Pellant,  Western Reform Party, West  Vancouver; Philip Hicks,  Rhinoceros Party, Campbell  River.

A look at the several local and regional councils in action here last week - a look from the point of view of experience in recent years in several areas of Central and  Atlantic Canada -brought a warm glow of admiration for  the state of local government from Langdale Ferry to Egmont.  You can travel far in other areas of the nation and not  find municipalities operating in the full modern mode as  they do here. Many are the local governments which still  cling to outmoded forms across the country.  Many councils still don't meet with the administrator or  general manager, plus the planner, present as the chief and  most essential representatives of the staff. But they do  here. The subsequent benefits to local communities and  their taxpayers musl certainly be very great.  Local councils, too, are doing an admirable job in Ihe  public relations and public inlormalion area. Copies of  agendas, reports and olher documentation are readily  available lo inlerested citizens, ratepayer groups and the  press.  Municipal staff officers welcome and comply obligingly  with requests for documents, even those that come up at  the last minute during ihe business of council. This admirable cusiom will contribute mightily to local good  government, and it is in the besl modern tradition of  democratic municipal affairs.  Aim to do better  In last week's issue of another area newspaper, "The  Press", an editorial advanced the surprising notion that  that newspaper concentrates more on news and events  while this one concentrates more on community columnists. We refuse to be so labelled.  Although we are happy to have a competitor at last admit our community columnists do a better job, we also  would maintain we publish even more and better coverage  of news and events. Our policy is to provide a balanced  publication with all departments doing the best possible  job for everyone on all the Sunshine Coast.  Witness, for instance, the fact that the Newspaper Excellence Awards we have won in the B.C. and Yukon and  Canadian Community Newspapers Association Better  Newspapers Competitions in recent years were never for  our concentration on community columnists.  Our aim is to continue to improve in all aspects of  newspaper work. We refuse to be pigeon-holed.  .tromjhi ��������� of th* COAST NEW8  5 YEARS AQO  Staff morale was said to be slipping at local schools  because budget cuts made the future uncertain for them.  Roberts Creek Elementary was hard hit, while it had Ihe  largest classes, and supplies had run out.  Everyone was getting ready to turn their clocks back an  hour on the weekend to return to Pacific Standard Time.  The lack of space at Gibsons Wharf prompted local union-  member fishermen to send a letter of concern to town  council.  A tax error had caused a revenue shortfall of $109,083  for the local school district.  10 YEARS AGO  Sunshine Inn, Ihe 15 room Tudor-style hotel that was  formerly St. Mary's Hospital nestled in a cove in Garden  Bay, was to be enlarged. The cabaret was to be remodelled  to become an Olde English pub.  Sechelt council was considering what to do with the  slough north of the populated area.  20 YEARS AGO  Spacious new quarters for the Bank of Montreal were  being completed in Gibsons on the weekend. A special  feature they were to offer was an around-the-clock  desposilory unit.  An editorial that week said: Those of us who enjoy the  fruits of the labors of the 'Old Faithfuls' in our community  associations should learn to cooperate actively and nol be  armchair advisers.  30 YEARS AGO  Harry Duke and his neighbours, the Fretters and the  Newmans, were belying the name 'Dunworkin' and were  having a tree falling bee.  40 YEARS AGO  Sechelt was to now have 24-hour telegraph service independent of Gibsons exchange. The doctor in Gibsons  could now be reached without rousing Mr. Parker at the  hardware store.  'Sechelt termed den of Iniquity' was Ihe title of a letter  to the editor which claimed that Sechelt began a downhill  slide when residents voted for a beer parlor, and that its  reputation for supplying everything for out-of-camp loggers that Vancouver had, Including Ihe good-time gitls,  had spread as far as Toronto.  r~  The Sunshine  llilf 1191  Published by GLASSFORD PRESS LTD.

They  seem to me to sometimes go  beyond reporting what happens  and beyond providing information to the point of attempting  to manipulate the outcome.  On Oclober 15, just before  the Social Credit convention in  Penticton, "Vancouver Sun"  printed an editorial which concluded: "But Mr. Vander Zalm  tried once before to convince  Social Credit and then\British  Columbians that he had changed his spots. He gave the. lie to  that shortly after winning Ihe  1986 election. It is easy for us to  say "we told you so". But we  did. And we do again".  It may have been that we  were warned by an editorial  writer, I don't remember. But I  do remember the large lype,  front page headlines on the  Saturday edition preceding the  August 1986 leadership convention at Whistler.  This trumpeted the results of  a Sun poll, a poll of, as I  remember only a few hundred  Brilish Columbians. From this  the Sun extrapolated the information, which ii announced in  bold type, that 75 peicent (or  thereabouts) of British Columbians supported Bill Vander  Zalm to lead the Social Credit  Parly.  I remember because I was  shocked at what appeared to me  as a blatant attempt to influence  the proceedings at Whistler.  How could figures like that help  but influence the delegates?  This sort of reporting doesn't  meet my standards of ethics.  And they've done it again this  time, trying to persuade the  delegates in Penticton,to dump,  the Premier.  The October 15 headlines on  the front page, complete with  unflattering caricature, announced a weekend special  "Vander Zaim's Calendar of  Crises". It's true there was a  story inside by a supporter of  the Premier, but is it fair to rehash all the old scandals? I certainly isn't news.  What perhaps should be of  greater concern is that there is  no   outcry   from   outraged  citizens at this sort of "reporting". I had fully expected  howls of criticism at the  publication of the 1986 poll, but  only heard my own multerings.  And I'm ashamed to say they  never got on paper.  If the CBC thinks that  repeating rumours of disaffection with John Turner meets  their standards of ethics, maybe  that liltle blue book should be  updated. Squabbling in political  back rooms is hardly news.  Personally I'd like to see polls  banned during election campaigns. That's not because I  favour censorhip in any form,  but because I think it would be  in the public interest.  While pollsters will quote  their record to support extrapolating opinion from a  sampling of maybe 1,500 to  2,000 people, they rarely tell  you the numbers, nor the questions asked.  I'm sure there's an art in polling and that it's possible to elicit  the answer you want by the way  the question is asked. But no-  one seems to take into account  the bandwagon effect.  We are sadly slill a society  which attaches great importance  to w inning. We tolerate violence  in sport, winning is all important.  We reverence the acquisition  of money regardless of how it is  acquired, and there is inevitably  a tendency for polls to become  self-fulfilling. The more complicated the issues in an election,  the more appealing the leader in  the polls.  It lowers the democratic process to the level of a horse race.  As our record of doing anything  about such things is fairly  dismal I guess we'll just have to  put up with whoever the  pollsters choose for us, until  such time as they out-poll  themselves perhaps!  It'd like to see some enterprising journalist investigate the  pollsters. I'd be interested to  know who gets polled and how  often.  My feelings of unease about  the system were not improved  by hearing Marjorie Nichols  reply to a question about polls  by saying that she only knew  one person who had been polled  and that was 15 years ago.  Another perspective  Early days of Canadian film-making  by Isabel Ralph  I wish to comment upon  Coast News S. Nutter's article  describing the formation of the  National Film Board of  Canada. I happen to know  something about it because I  was there in Ottawa about three  years after the board was  established in 1939. John Grierson was appointed film commissioner.  My husband Jack Ralph applied for a job there and was accepted because of his very good  qualifications. Jack had worked  for a number of years for Ihe  Bell Telephone Company in  Montreal as a business  manager.  For recreation he joined the  Montreal Repertory Theatre  which was run by Martha  Allan, (descendant of Sir Hugh  Allan, the shipping magnate),  and acted in many plays. With  this experience he landed a job  broadcasting the news every  evening at 10 o'clock.  No, my husband was not  under 30 years old; he was not  one of those chosen at a hotel  party going on into the morning  as Mr. Nutter states. He applied  by mail, listing his qualifications  and experience and was told to  appear in Ottawa for an interview with Grierson.  I had to pack our belongings  and give notice to our landlord  while Jack tried to find .an  apartment in Ottawa, which  wasn't easy. We finally settled  in a house on Sandy Hill not far  from the Soviet embassy. There  was a cluster of embassies there.  Grierson wac soon impressed  by my husband's organizing  ability and saw that he could depend on him. Grierson was a  short man and my husband was  tall, handsome and had a  beautiful baritone voice.  He also knew how to write  and how to judge the writing of  others. He was soon promoted  to the position of director of  distribution.  He established film societies  all over Canada where the latest  films could be shown.  I don't see why Grierson had  to come to Chicago to take a  course in geopolitics as Mr.  Nutter says. He had already  graduated from Balliol College  al Oxford.  He had considerable experience in film-making in  England and brought with him  a number of skilled technicians;  the only name I can remember  is Spotliswoode. They were all  rather snobbish and clannish  and looked clown on us colonials.  There were German refugees  too who brought their skills to  the Film Board: Eva Geisel and  her husband, and a dark, handsome young man very popular  among the women. During the  term that the Weimar Republic  was in power in Germany,  money had been spent on the  technique of making film in colour.  Hitler, when he came to  power made use of this technique to produce many films promoting his views. One of these  was "Triumph of the Will", a  terrifying film.  At our Film Board nobody  "lounged at will into deputy  minister's offices" as Mr. Nutter states. Under Grierson's  management there was no time  for anybody to lounge.  Everybody had to be on the job  at nine o'clock sharp.  This was difficult for my husband who was hard to arouse in  the morning and would rush off  to work with no breakfast but a  cup of coffee. Once the phone  rang and it was Grierson's Scottish voice saying, "Wheer's that  great big beautiful bag-o-wind,  y'r husband?"  A very important employee  of the Film Board was a shy  young Scotsman, Norman  McLaren, who had worked for  Grierson in the British General  Post Office Film Unit. While in  Canada he developed a method  of scratching drawings directly  onto Ihe film and the sound  track.  Mr. Nutter tells of a man  who was always smoking a cigar  and "would sit in the viewing  room puffing away." 1 wonder  if it was he who started the fire  in the cutting room where the  film was edited.  The scraps of film that were  cut away dropped to the floor  and somebody had carelessly ignited them. Several women were  trapped behind the machine and  luckly for them the fire was  beaten out.  A beautiful film named  "Klee Wyck" was made  displaying the paintings of Emily Carr. Klee Wyck was the  name the Coast Indians gave  her. My husband was the narrator.  In Ottawa there was a young  man and his wife who had a  contract to make films for the  Film Board. Her grandfather  was the farmer who had owned  all the land bordering the main  road passing in front of the  House of Commons.  His name was Sparks and  that is now the name of the  slreet. The wife did the research)  and wrote the scripts. I knew  her and her little children.  They made at least two films  about the legends of the Native  people of Canada. One of thenv  was "The Loon's Necklace", ai  lovely film still shown in the'  schools today.  Because those were the years;  of the terrible struggle to defeat;  Hitler, "Canada Carries On";  was the feature production of:  the NFB. It was a report of.

Coast News, October 24,1988  laaaapaaiaaaiaipHaaw  Letters to the Editor  Big concern is letdown after Port Mellon  Editor:  Like you, I was surprised by  the sudden expression of concerns by Rob Buchan as  reported at a recent meeting of  the Gibsons Council.  On the subject of Connor  and Associates, I would like to  point out that Des Connor remains very much in charge of  the overall study and personally  led the Saturday session with  community leaders. The  "junior person" to whom Mr.  Buchan referred is a particularly  well qualified and experienced  lady  with   an  undergraduate  degree in Sociology and post  graduate degree in Environmental Impact Studies. I would be  hard pressed to find anyone better qualified, or better equipped  in experience and personality to  carry out the significant "leg  work" which this community  study demands.  The concerns listed by Mr.  Buchan read as though they  originated from the Connor  study. Further, all of these concerns existed before the Port  Mellon project was announced.  Have we ever been satisfied with  the ferry and road systems?  The only concern which our  project can resolve is environmental impact, where our  mill will be a national leader by  1990. For the others, we can only work to ensure that we don't  make a poor situation worse.  The major concern, on which  all community leaders agreed, is  the inevitable economic letdown  which will occur when the Port  Mellon project is completed. It  is this area which deserves the  most attention from all sectors  of the community. We have just  three years to plan to take advantage of the talented people  Endorses theatre efforts  Editor's Note: A copy of the  following his been received for  publication.  Gibsons Landing Theatre Project  280 Gower Point Road  280 Gower Point Road  Gibsons, B.C.  Dear Sir:  The Gibsons and District  Chamber of Commerce is pleased to endorse your efforts to  build a 300 seat theatre in Gibsons.  Any project which will  stimulate the local economy,  create year-round employment,  and make Gibsons a 'destina  tion' tourist attraction, has the  complete support of this  chamber.  Live theatre presents an ir-  resistable attraction to your project. The prospect of enjoying a  play, ballet, or an international  production without being forced to spend the night in Vancouver is a time and money saving benefit. Imagine an alternative to the monotony of  television.  However, we are concerned  that the management of any  project which solicits funds  from the public be aware ol  their responsibility for strong  fiscal management and public  disclosure. In spite of the importance of your project, the  public must be assured that the  taxpayers of Gibsons will not be  burdened if your project proves  to be economically unviable.  We   recognize   that   your  Board of Directors are extremely dedicated to this project and  we encourage you to keep up  the good work, and we wish you  good luck in your endeavours.  The Executive  Gibsons and District  Chamber of Commerce  Gibsons Theatre gets $25*000  Editor:  This letter is really a progress  report from the Gibsons Landing Theatre Project. I'm pleased to say that we are making  real strides toward our final  goal, the money to build our  theatre.  We might well have had the  money by now if a federal election did not mean an automatic  freeze of all federal funds for  such purposes as ours until after  it's all over. However, we have  developed good connections  with various ministers and  departments which have money  for projects like ours.  We've had meaningful  meetings with the appropriate  people. It looks very hopeful  for later this year.  Apparently the BC Lottery  Fund money is on hold for the  moment while guidelines for the  new Go BC Fund are worked  out.  Oji Paper (Canfor's new  partner) has pledged $25,000,  BC Tel, Kamyr Canada Inc.,  and Shell Oil are all helping us  substantially. Money from seat  sales is accumulating very well.  You already know about  Canfor's $50,000. Warm thanks  to you all.  At a recent meeting we  discussed the idea of starting  with a "Phase One" of our  building plan. This will comprise the old firehall, converted  into a 150-seat theatre with a  good stage, lighting, sound, and  all the essential amenities.  We feel this would give our  efforts some essential credibility, and by so doing, boost our  fund raising efforts. To start  this way of course, we need the  blessing of the Gibsons council,  which we would seek.  It must be clearly understood,  however, that we would only go  this route on the certain  understanding that our fundraising efforts would continue  until we have the total amount  needed for the 300-seat structure.

Lindsay,  Sunshine Coast  Peace Committee  Free trade article praised  Editor:  I would like to commend you  for running the article by  Harold C. Brandreth entitled  "Free Trade and Canada's  Future" in your edition of October 17.  We have heard a great deal of  rhetoric about how Canada and  Canadians will benefit by the  , so-called free trade agreement.  . But the writer of this article has  . pointed out some of the more  controversial   and   negative  aspects contained in it.  As Mr. Brandreth says, the  implications inherent in the  agreement are such that it  becomes a distinct threat to  Canadian sovereignty.  The Conservatives of course  deny this. But many informed  and intelligent people such as  the Liberal leader, the NDP  leader,   Stephen   Lewis,   Bob  WOOD  HEATING  QUESTIONS?  Search N<  CHRISTIAN  A.C. BUILDING  SUPPLIKS  Also Qualified  liisuiauei' Inspci iii  Sales and  Installations of  \ BUILDING/  SUPPLIES  White, Mel Hurtig, David  Suzuki, and many others,  believe strongly that this is so.  It is not surprising many  business people support the  agreement. They think mainly  in terms of increased opportunities for themselves and their  business.  But it is disappointing so  many other Canadians seem to  be looking at the agreement  from a purely personal point of  view - calculating as to whether  or not it will benefit them financially in the immediate future.  Our country is rich in  resources and full of potential if  governed and developed with  wisdom. We have no need, and  no right, to sell our birthright  for some questionable monetary  advantages, with the certainty  we will be binding ourselves  ever more closely to the  American way of life, and to the  dictates of the most powerful  nation on earth.  We still have the opportunity  to cancel this agreement, provided we do not allow the Conservatives' to form another majority government. It is up to  each of us to decide - not  whether or not we think the  agreement will benefit us personally but what is best for the  future of our country.  R.S. Woodsworth  Gibsons, B.C.

Constable  Marc Sorokan of the Gibsons  RCMP detachment gave a brief  presentation to all students,  who then created posters with  messages for drivers to slow  down, be cautious etc.  We demonstrated at the ferry  terminal and along the Port  Mellon Highway with our  posters. Our campaign has been  aided by the morning crews on  the B.C. Ferries who caution  drivers about children on the  highway.  In addition, the Gibsons  RCMP detachment attended  our demonstration and the  Highways Department was  highly supportive. Many thanks  to them.  Our message to all is simple.  Please slow down and be  cautious at all times of the day,  but particularly between 8 am  and 5 pm when children are  travelling to and from school.  There has been enough  tragedy on local roads in recent  years. We don't want more.  Ann Skelcher  Principal  Langdale Elementary School  Fight now for Gibsons bypass  Editor:  It is nice to see work being  done on the approaches to  Langdale Ferry and they are  also going to improve that hairpin corner on North Road. But  this is 'bandaid' work, the vote  was only $300,000.  The Gibsons Bypass has been  planned and dreamed about for  years. We just might get it at  last!  This is a major project, costing at least $7,000,000. No vote  yet, but the SCRD is on to  something and we just might get  it.  The map at the highways office shows it going west from  the terminal, up to the hydro  right-of-way, then a large curve  south, meeting Highway 101 at  Pratt Road.  This is no pipe dream apparently. Public support is  urgently required. The thing to  do is write a letter endorsing it.  Address your note to Director  J. Shaske. Sunshine Coast  Regional District, Box 800,  Sechelt, B.C. VON 3A0.

Chuck Connors and  Harry Cargo,  Howe Sound Pulp and Paper,  Box 100,  Port MeUon, B.C. VON 2SO  Dear Sirs:  It came to my attention at a  Langdale Elementary School  Parents Group Meeting recently  that some sort of "pub" is being planned on or near the construction site at Port Mellon. I  am writing to query the exact  nature of this proposal, as I  have serious concerns with the  establishment of licensed  premises at Port Mellon.  I am a concerned resident of  the community of Hopkins  Landing. I have three young  children who are very active in  the community. This necessitates us driving them to various  functions each day.  We already face traffic problems associated with the Port  Mellon Highway, as you are  well aware.  This brings me to my particular concern about a facility  operating at Port Mellon that  would introduce alcohol into an  already terrifying scenario.  I can appreciate the motivation in opening a "canteen"  that might encourage the  drinkers to stay in Port Mellon.  However, it is a "wish and a  promise" mentality that imagines that will actually occur.  Rather, I see workers having  a few drinks to loosen up down  at Port Mellon and then jumping into vehicles to carry on  their drinking in Gibsons or  heading for the ferry.  I urge the powers that prevail  to carefully consider the concept  of permitting alcohol consumption so closely associated with  the workplace. I am shocked  that the Workmens' Compensation Board would sanction such  a proposal.  Statistics will verify our society's inability to effectively deal  with alcohol-related problems.  Please think of the children of  the area and lead the community to a more enlightened and a  safer tomorrow.

This was a major decision  made at a committee meeting  October 17 when consultant  Tom Moore was especially present to answer 26 questions of  concern to committee members.  Consultant Moore said a subcommittee should take a written  submission to the Highways  Ministry at Victoria.  The committee was concerned thai available ministry  estimates of road maintenance  costs may be based on ministry  accounting and therefore may  probably be low. Information  was requested to ascertain what  variance there might be between  ministry estimates and actual  municipal experience.  The committee at its October  6 meeting decided to ask the  Highways Ministry to have the  Port Mellon Highway designated a secondary highway if  restructuring takes place.  The committee also hopes to  ask the ministry to stipulate that  if the Gibsons bypass is constructed, the ministry, within  five years of restructuring,  Would agree to build the feeder  roads.  One of the other things put to  consultant Moore was the  danger that the ministry may  .wish to de-classify Highway 101  In the schools  and designate the North Road  route as arterial. Members also  felt there should be enough  money to repave roads on a IS  year schedule.  Moore said the provincial  government is prepared to make  additional grants for planning  and studies within a restructured community.  Asked about the possibility of  Gibsons obtaining taxes from  its nearby large pulp and paper  mill, Moore answered that only  two pulp mills in the province  are outside municipal boundaries. These two are at Port  Mellon and Skookumchuck.  If the tax rate is varied for the  pulp mill, all other major industry would be varied at the  same rate, Moore said.  He read aloud the residential  and corresponding industrial  rates from several municipalities. It was noted there was  great variation in the multiples  of residential to industrial rates.  Committeeman Tony Laver  raised the concern of many  residents that their taxes would  be contributing to improvements in the downtown core.  Moore said only users contribute to sewer or water  systems, and that general taxes  don't contribute to such  systems.  Chairman Jane Sorko, at  whose home the meeting was  held, got a consensus from the  members that the draft report  on Gibsons restructuring was  ready to be completed as a  preliminary report. She said it  was time to invite special interest groups to put their concerns before the committee.  Submissions will be preferred  in writing. Advertisements will  invite those interested to attend  the next committee meeting  November 7 at 7 pm at the  municipal hall.  Water improvement districts  will be invited to submit concerns. The question of land  assets held by the improvement  districts and the disposition of  those assets was discussed.  Moore said the figures used  in the draft report for policing is  all-inclusive. He said the only  costs already in the report in  regard to drainage are those in  the budgets of Town of Gibsons  and the Highways Ministry.  Additional information was requested from committee advisers.  Moore said the Municipal  Act makes it mandatory that  improvement districts be  dissolved during restructuring.  They may then be set up as a  committee of council to manage  such a specified area.  The committee suggested that  if a referendum is held, the  ministry of municipal affairs  should agree it be conducted as  three separate polls. Moore said  the ministry will say the area  may have as many polls as are  desired, but that regulations  don't provide for separate  counts for portions of a restructured area.  Evaluate special programs  by Harold Blaine  Bigger and better educational  things for the 12 per cent of the  Sunshine Coast's school  students in special programs can  be expected after an evaluation  by an outside team of three expert educators starting October  31.  "It makes sense to check and  see that we're doing a good  job," said Colleen Elson,  School District 46 director of instruction (Special Services) in an  interview with the "Coast  News" in advance of the  evaluation.  Parents and the general  public will have an opportunity  to express their opinions about  the state of education services  today hereabouts during open  meetings with the evaluation  team. There are 338 special  students in the district out of a  total student body of 2,811.  Special programs cover  everything in the schools from  counselling, gifted children, all  special classes that are set up to  deal with a whole range of  pupils including mentally and  physically handicapped as well  as those with behaviour problems.  The external team coming to  do the evaluation includes:  Joanne Regush from Mission  School District; Lauchlin  Mawhinney from Courtenay;  Tom Watson, assistant  superintendent from Qualicum.  The three will be here initially  October 31 to November 4.  They will visit all the schools  and observe. They will talk to  all of the involved local personnel.  The District 46 school board,  as part of its goals for this year,  has asked for a number of  school programs to be  evaluated, says Director Elson.  The biggest one being looked at  is special programs.  There are some meetings set  up, including one November 2  at Chatelech Secondary School  in Sechelt. Between 4 and 6 pm  that day all parents and interested citizens are invited to  attend, meet the team, and let  them know of any concerns of  good things about the local  system, as the case may be.  At another public meeting  just before they leave at the end  of their first visit, the team will  be present at another public  meeting at the same school. At  that time the team will give their  first impressions publicly.  The team will write a formal  report. Then members will be  making further visits here  throughout the year to give any  help they can in the implementation of any recommendations  adopted from the report.  In preparation for this  evaluation, says Elson, the local  system did a self-evaluation  study. That included questionnaires to a sampling of special  student parents.  It is hoped the team will confirm the good things already being done here in special programs. It is also hoped the local  system will be given some  guidelines for things that can be  improved.  "I think special services  within the schools are still  relatively new. It's only 25 years  since we started integrating  special students into the regular  school system," says the local  director of special educational  services instruction.

Case histories were examined concerning excavation procedures (see story  bdOW). ���Vern Elliott pholo  Safety In the workplace  WCB spells out position  "The Worker's Compensation Board is nol responsible for  providing a safe workplace for  workers, lhat is the duty of the  employer,"'said Inspector Jim  Punton in Sechelt October 18.  Punton was addressing a  giotip of workers, supervisors  and employers from the Coast  area on the subject of safety in  ihe work environment.  "Patt of the purpose of this  session is to clarify regulations  and assist employers with their  legal responsibilities," he said.  The remainder of the session  was concerned with excavation  safely.  Safe excavation procedures  arc one of the board's priority  regulations that, if violated,  falls under their Automatic  Penalty Review policy. Introduced in 1984, this policy  allows the board to double fines  on repeat violations.  WCB has been accused in the  past of costing small companies  thousands of dollars in fines  and jeopardizing jobs. But Punton disagrees.  "The companies cost  themselves this money by not  doing the job properly and safely in the first place. And no  worker wants to endanger his  life for a job," he said.  Since 1984, the board had  adopted a hard-line approach to  offenders in the hope of reduc  ing accidents and injuries on the  job. In 1987, fatalities from  work-related accidents averaged  nearly one per working day in  B.C. alone. Over 170,000 injury  claims were filed during this  time.  Punton stressed the regulations are not a recommendation  for the employer but a legal requirement. The company is  charged under these regulations,  not the worker.  "However, an inquest into an  accident is still very stressful for  all concerned," he said, citing a  case before Vancouver courts in  which management personnel  testified for eight hours.

A detailed activity plan was  proposed which includes 13  separate actions suggested to  finalize the plan. Engineering  costs to follow this schedule are  estimated at $17,150 over one  year.  The costs could be covered  under a Ministry of Environment grant for a possible 100  percent. Otherwise, 58 percent  could be covered by the 1989  sewer study grant.  The same consulting firm has  also suggested a two-year surface water quality study to the  Chekwelp/Lingdale area at a  cost of $8600.  The study outline recommends 10 samples collected four  times per year to be tested for  nitrogen, phosphorus, chlorine,  pH, BOD5 and fecal coliforms.  It suggests that all 10 samples be  checked for coliforms, five for  fecal coliforms and two for  complete laboratory analysis.  Discussion of the reports has  been adjourned until the next  meeting of the Public Utilities  committee.

Morgan, who is the National Chairperson of AI, spoke to the group last Thursday.  ���Vern Elliott photo  Coast residents form  amnesty organization  During Amnesty International Week, a group of Coast  residents met October 19 at  Roberts Creek Elementary to  form a local AI group.  Initially, it will be a "Group  in Formation". Then, after  some months of apprenticeship,  it may become another group in  Amnesty's English-speaking  Canada section. As such, its  main task will be working for  prisoners of conscience and it  will have its "own" prisoners.  A prisoner of conscience is  someone who has neither advocated nor participated in acts  of violence.  The meeting was instigated  and chaired by Roger Legasse.  The guest speaker was Margaret  Morgan, national chairperson  for Canada's English-speaking  AI section.  Morgan outlined the history  of AI. She told how it began  from the work of one individual  and has now grown to over half  a million members.  She outlined the purposes of  Al and how it accomplishes its  goals. She spoke about reports  of torture and said, "Accept in  your minds that these  unspeakable things are happening to fellow human beings.  And then begin to do something  about them."  Morgan told how people are  tortured by their own governments. In Chile, for example,  clinics exist for survivors of torture that has been inflicted.  Overseas, and in Toronto and  Vancouver, there are centres for  the survivors of torture where  specialized work is done to help  these people.  Morgan's own group has  been working for 12 years for  the release of an elderly couple  in Chile. They think the two are  probably dead, but continue to  work until they have definite  knowledge.  The prisoners are the Arayas,  who "disappeared" in 1973.  Their daughter, Monica, still  lives in Chile, always wondering  about the fate of her parents.  Recently, her son was  murdered. It seems that a tactic  to silence the relatives is to get at  the children.  On December 10, the 40th  anniversary of the adoption by  the United Nations of the  Universal Declaration of  Human Rights, a petition will  be presented to the U.N. for a  reaffirmation of this declaration. It is hoped millions of  signatures will be obtained by  Amnesty groups world-wide,  250,000 from Canada alone.  If any Coast residents wish to  join the AI group, or simply  help in circulating the petition,  they may contact Roger  Legasse, chairman, at 885-7143,  or Althea Rowe, membership  secretary, at 885-7693.  Jaycees form  Gibsons group  An international organization  is being formed in Gibsons.  Jaycees is different from any  other group in this community.  It offers people the opportunity  to combine their interests,  energy and enthusiasm into constructive community services.  Jaycees is designed for people  of action, says organizer Tom  Brown of Granthams Landing.  This organization is  specifically designed to meet  people's needs. Specific age  limits (19-35) are adhered to in  order to ensure that the purpose  of training young people for  leadership is achieved.  "Jaycees offer a specific  training program, to assist  young people to develop their  own individual abilities, says  Brown.  The Jaycee unit exists for two  SPECIAL  6 Month  Term Deposit  9.75  per annum  - LIMITED TIME Offer  ��� Minimum Deposit $5000  - Interest Paid on Maturity  - The government-backed Credit Union  Deposit Insurance Corporation of British  Columbia protects the deposits of all  British Columbia credit union members up  lo a maximum of $100,000 per separate  deposit account, per credit union.

Jaycees afford social contact  and friendship with other young  people. Today, "many young  people spend much of their lives  moving from town to town.  This results in a limited amount  of friends, but this problem is  quickly solved through Jaycee  membership," he says.  "Jaycees offer an ideal way  of getting acquainted. Although  not primarily a social organization, social functions and project work foster friendships that  will last a lifetime, says Brown.  In most occupations, the  qualities which go to make up  success involve human relations  as well as any specific ability to  do the particular job. Most  employers realize this and look  with favour upon young people  interested in civic work.  "Even employers who are not  aware of the value of civic work  are impressed when they read  the paper and see that one of  their employees is heading up a  Jaycees project," he says.  Employers are quick to  realize that through Jaycees,  these people gain practical experience and confidence in  leadership training. An  employer may not chance advancements to young people  without this experience, even  though he may have confidence  in that man.  This opinion is often  demonstrated by an employer's  willingness to pay for the  membership of his employees  and to allow them time off for  special project work.  Whatever goal you may set,  Jaycees offers the satisfaction  of service, friendship and  leadership training. "The  measure of each is up to you,"  says organizer Brown.  The next Jaycees meeting is at  the Omega Restaurant, October  25 at 6:30 pm. Guest speaker  will be Ray Williston, local  Economic Development Commission official.  Discussion will be on  economic development.

The event was held to observe  the first anniversary of the  Band's independence. On  display were impressive examples of arts and crafts by  Band members.  Refreshments consisted of  traditional smoked salmon and  Indian ice cream. Entertainment was provided by the Duncan Dancers, Carlene Baptiste's  children's dancing group and  Danyo Braun.  Stan Dixon outlined for the  visitors the history of the Band's  fight for independence, a struggle which culminated in the formation of the Sechelt Indian  Band Government District a  year ago.  The Duncan Dancers were  the highlight of the evening.  The four male members of the  group have revived the old  dances and songs.

A fifth,  the Labrador retriever, was now  shown; perhaps the Post Office  finds five an awkward number  to fit the sheet of stamps.  The Newfoundland, the  Nova Scotia Duck Tolling  retriever, the Eskimo or  Kingmik, and the Tahltan bear  dog of B.C. are the ones on the  stamps.  The Newfoundland, bred  true since 1860 by British dog  fanciers, is very well known.  But tolling retriever?  In the event you do not  know, tolling is the dog's runn  ing about barking on shore to  arouse the curiosity of the ducks  out on the water. This imitation  of a fox's antics for the same  purpose seems to work; and  then, bang!  The dog retrieves the downed  ducks as well. Now the breed  serves as pet, as do most working breeds.  The Eskimo, like many working dogs, is now unemployed  and might have vanished except  for a conservation program by  one man in Yellowknife. Even  more than most, the Eskimo is a  working dog by nature.  The Yellowknife program  does not intend to supply them  outside the Arctic as pets.

The Tahltan bear dog was a  hunting breed used by the  Native people, the Tahltans  among them, who lived along  the Stikine River. "Without  them our people would have  starved" in the days of arrow  and even of the musket.  A small animal about IS  pounds, erect bat-like ears, and  a unique tail "like an oversize  shaving brush", its bark sounds  much like the yelping of the  coyote.  Carried in packsacks on a  long trek, to find game, the little  dogs were turned loose in pairs  to harry a bear or lynx until the  hunter arrived on the spot.  They were very smart dogs...  could find a bear's snow-  covered winter hideaway, or  start up a grouse or hare."  Since they were affectionate,  intelligent, always ready for a  boisterous game, they appealed  as pets to townsfolk. That prolonged their existence a few  years when the Native hunter no  longer needed their service.  Although the breed was accepted by the Canadian Kennel  Club in 1940, only nine of them  were ever registered. Not one  has been registered in the past  30 years. There is no breeding  stock alive today.  Now the Tahlton bear dog is  a fading scrap of folklore  remembered in a postage stamp  and, we read, by a mounted  specimen in the National  Museum in Ottawa. Oh, and a  few photos here and there.

FALL COLOURS  In the bright sunshine a week  ago a couple of miles east of the  toll booth on the Coquihalla,  there was our own British Columbia fall colours tour  unblemished by tour guide.  On the nearby slopes patches  of aspen, their leaves turned  bright yellow with splashes of  red here and there, glowed in a  setting of several shades of  green. The scene awaited an  A.Y. Jackson to record.  Girl  Guides  The Girl Guides of Canada  sponsor an annual hiking event  to take place in different parks  of B.C. Ladies' Hike '88 took  place September 10-16, drawing  31 Guiders from all over B.C. to  the Sunshine Coast.  Eileen Bonaguro, Anna  Girard, Kathi Matsuzaki, and  Linda Moorcroft from Panther  Division were among those who  hiked to the Tannis Lake and  Grey Creek area.  Base camp was set up at a  cabin on Edwards Lake. Day  trips were taken to Mount  Steele, Bachelor Lake cabin and  Panther Peak.  The hikers were amazed to  find their tents frozen and frost  all around when they awoke the  following morning. Tents could  not be taken down until the  frost had melted.  Guiding visitors were enthralled by our beautiful coastal  terrain, our mild autumn  weather, and our friendly people. Many new friendships were  made and each hiker hopes to  renew these at a Reunion to be  held in November.

Combine all ingredients and mix well. Press into a buttered 8" pie plate and bake  for 10 minutes. Cool. The recipe says 15 minutes but 10 were  enough for me.  4 egg yolks, lightly beaten juice of 2 limes  Vt cup granulated sugar 1Vi cups whipping cream  rind ot 2 limes  In the top of a double boiler combine the yolks, sugar and juice.  Stir, about 10 minutes, until the mixture coats the back of a spoon.  Cool and then add the rinds. Whip the cream until It stands in soft  peaks and fold it into the cooled lime filling. Spoon into the crust  and chill for 24 hours. You can then whip more cream to decorate  the top. This pie guarantees a quick return to healthy  appetites...and expanding waistlines!

DINNER AND DANCE  The Davis Bay/Wilson Creek  Hall rang with the happy  sounds of a community working together all summer and  on October 18 at the potluck  dinner and dance. Everyone admired tne new addition, ate  from a groaning table of  delicious  foods  This shy man is very good  and even favoured the gathering  with a couple of Australian  Country songs.  Joan Newsham, vice president of the community association, presented Turner Berry  with a lifetime membership in  the Davis Bay/Wilson Creek  Community Association in appreciation of long service to the  community.  Evelyn Bushell played the  piano for the dancing while  hubby Jack acted as M.C. A  super team as usual.  Door prizes were won by Mr.  and Mrs. Newsham, Mr. and  Mrs. Heath, Mr. and Mrs.  Huggins and Judy LeNeve.  These prizes were generously  donated by the Homestead  Restaurant, Gina's BonBons,  Kal Tire in Sechelt and Sue  LeNeve. Thanks to all donors  and congratulations to the win-.  COAST HONORED  The Bella Beach Motel was  the scene of much activity October 18 as women from Powell  River and the Sunshine Coast  gathered to see and hear Yukiko  Mitsumata demonstrate a knitting machine. Yuki represents  Brother Machines and comes  from their factory city of  Nagoya in Japan.  This area was the only one in  B.C. so honored by Yuki's  humour and skills, the rest of  her meetings were with dealers  only. A tribute to Sue LeNeve  and the industrious gals in the  Knitting Club.

When the 2000 British  Columbians who will  build the Vancouver Island  Natural Gas Pipeline  begin work early next year,  residents on the Island and  the Sechelt Peninsula will  be about 24 months away  from guaranteed energy  savings. There's a significant  difference between the cost  of electricity or oil, and  natural gas - a resource  British Columbia measures  in the trillions of cubic feet.  Just as important as  savings in home heating  costs will be the impact  of natural gas on the economy and the  environment.  The cost of energy is a major factior in  determining where new businesses will locate.  The pipeline makes Vancouver Island and the  Sunshine Coast hot  competitors for new  industries and new jobs  as well as making existing  industry more efficient.  And in the gas fields of  northeastern BC. there will  be stepped-up exploration  and development to prepare  for an increase of 10 to 15  per cent in the province's  gas sales.

A Better B.G I  Sechelt Seniors  Coast News, October 24,1988  11.  by Larry Grafton  Fall activities pick up pace  Activities at Sechelt Seniors  Branch 69 are accelerating at a  pace where it would seem prudent at this time to set out a list  of events in print so that you  may clip it for future reference.  October 28 - Soup and Sandwich at our hall, 11:30 to 1:30.  Cost $3. Open to the public.  November 19 - Nikki Weber's  'Night to Remember' concert in  our hall at 8 pm. Cost $5.  Tickets available at Strings  'n Things, Talewind Books,  Books and Stuff and as in the  past, I will have tickets. Those  wishing to attend should get  tickets early to avoid disappointment. Nikki's concerts are  usually played to a full house  and tickets arc limited due to  the size of our old hall.  November 26 - Branch 69  Christmas Bazaar at 1:30 pm in  our hall. This is one of our  largest fund-raising efforts of  the year, with a multitude of  items to please the taste of the  majority. Our ladies have been  faithfully attending the Thursday morning craft sessions,  making all manner of exciting  items. Incidentally, while on the  subject, our craft convener  wishes to extend thanks to Nora  Robinson for the items she so  kindly donated for this bazaar.  Our apologies for not having  done so sooner.  November 30 - May Widman  has set up a trip to Vancouver.  Sightseeing and a probable tour  of Andres Wines.

December 8 - Our Christmas  Dinner  will  be  held  at  the  Who is a Senior?  Who is a  Senior Citizen?  What is one?  A Senior Citizen is one who  was here before the pill and the  population explosion. We were  here before television,  penicillin, polio shots, antibiotics and frisbees. Before  frozen food, nylon, Dacron,  Xerox, radar, florescent light,  credit cards and ball point pens.  For us, time sharing meant  togetherness, not computers. A  chip meant a piece of wood,  hardware meant hard ware,  software wasn't even a word.  Coeds never wore slacks. We  were before pantyhose and drip  dry clothes, before ice makers  and dishwashers, clothes dryers,  freezers and electric blankets.  Before men wore long hair and  earrings and women wore tux-  : edos.  We   were   before   Brian  ; Mulroney, Bill Vander Zalm,  ; Jack Munroe, Ann  Landers,  plastic, the 40-hour week and  ; the minimum wage.  We got married first and then  lived together. How quaint can  we be?  Closets were for clothes, not  for coming out of. Bunnies were  : small rabbits and rabbits were  ��� not   Volkswagens.   We   were  before cup-sizing for bras.  Girls wore Peter Pan collars  and thought cleavage was  something butchers did. We  were befors Batman, Rudolph  the Red Nosed Reindeer and  Snoopy. Before DDT, vitamin  pills, disposable diapers, jeeps,  pizza, Cheerios, instant coffee,  decaffinated anything.  McDonald's was unheard of.  We thought fast food was what  you ate during Lent. We were  before Boy George, Elvis, Anne  Murray and Chiquita Banana.  Before FM radios, tape  recorders, electric typewriters,  word processors, muzak, electric music and disco dancing.  In our day, cigarette smoking  was fashionable, grass was for  mowing, Coke was a refreshing  drink and pot was something  Gardening  notes  by Marguerite  If you like the first splash of  colour of spring flowering  crocuses and daffodils, and  haven't planted them yet, you  still have enough time - especially if we continue with this fairly  warm fall weather.  Earlier planting results in  blooms sooner. Try some  hyacinths in a pot for a change.  Keep them in a cool place of 40  degrees to promote a good root  system, then bring them in to a  high temperature to force them  to bloom.  Green tomatoes can be wiped  and then wrapped in newspaper  and stored in the box in a cool  dry place. Inspect occasionally  and your supply will last longer.  The large green shrub bushes  in Pioneer Park called Kochia  or Summer Cypress which are  annuals, are maintaining their  fresh green colour. They are  awaiting for the frosty weather,  when they will turn a burning  red, Then their life cycle is over.  We have yet to finish planting  the daffodils and the tulips,  weather permitting this week.  The annual exhibition of late  blooming chrysanthemums in  the floral hall of Van Dusen  Gardens is October 29 from 1  pm to 6 pm, Sunday October 30  10 am to 4 pm, admission $1.

Today, people are preplanning their personal funeral preference  for the benefit of their loved ones. Show your family and loved  ones how much you care by preplanning your wishes now.

It would help if you  could have them ready for the  kids to pick up.  AT COOPERS GREEN  We hope to see you all there  on Monday night October 31 to  join in the great Halloween party which the Halfmoon Bay Fire  Department presents each year.  Even if the weather is bad  you can be inside the hall to  watch the fireworks display and  can slip outside to warm up at  the huge bonfire. There will be  lots of goodies for the kids, and  adults will be able to buy popcorn, hamburgers and hot dogs.  Prizes will be presented for  costumes for groups ranging in  age from one to 90, ��� so get  yourself and you wee ones all  dressed up to enjoy the fun.  Don't forget to let the fire  fellows know how much you  appreciate all the work and  volunteer time they give to put  on this party.

Space is limited  and tickets sell out fast for this  event, so give Barbara Grimsey  a call at 885-9860.  THE CHURCH  Quite a bit of concern has  been expressed regarding the little Church of His Presence on  Redrooffs and the possibility of  it having to be moved. Put so  far no one has come up with a  solution. Many people were  married there and have sentimental attachments to the  church.  Doesn't  anyone  out  there  have a small corner somewhere  in Halfmoon Bay where a little  church would be welcome?  COUGAR SCARE  By the way - word has it that  a cougar has been seen around  Redrooffs. Just keep your eye  on the wee ones in case they  think it's a nice big pussy cat.

Marsh and council  still in conflict  by Penny Fuller  Miscommunication and confusion continues to plague  negotiations between the Sechelt  Marsh Protective Society and  Sechelt Council. At the October  19 regular meeting, council  received a memo from the society outlining the group's understanding of agreements reached  at a meeting with council on  September 6.  Thirty-four members of the  Marsh Society signed the memo  which covered four basic  points:  I) that Lots 48,49 and 50 be  developed as a parkland area  and extension of the marsh; 2)  that development of Lot 49,  which is owned by the regional  district, and Lot 50, which is  owned by the District of  Sechelt, would require consent  by the owners, and the asking  price for Lot 48 is $50,000; 3)  that council would appoint a  representative to meet with the  society and discuss mutual concerns, and 4) that the Marsh  Society would purchase Lot 48.  However, in the memo, the  society took the position that  $50,000 far exceeds the value of  Lot 48. They set out conditions  for managing the raising of  funds in order to purchase the  lot.

Lot 49, he said, is part  of the 'highway program' and  there will be a culvert in the  middle of it.  "There won't be any ditch  running through there," he  said.  Alderman MacLarty said the  society would have to handle  negotiation of the price of the  lot with the owner.  Council agreed to meet with  representatives from the Marsh  Society at the next planning  committee meeting on October  27. The municipal district's  engineer will then be available  to answer questions.

Certain plantations on B.C.'s  west coast and Queen Charloite  Islands are already not growing  as fast as scientists expected.  They are turning yellow and  stagnating because the trees  can't take up vital nutrients  from the soil.  Unless the trend is reversed,  scientists say, the next generation of forests may not be there  in 80 years as predicted to support a forest industry.  Cedar and hemlock currently  make up 75 per cent of B.C.'s  forests and cedar exports supply  a major share of the world  market.  Scientists believe salal, a common shrub which dominates  logged areas, may be inhibiting  tree growth. They are studying a  parallel situation in Scotland  where Sitka spruce plantations  are inhibited by heather. Unchecked, the result seems to be  fertile heathland.  "We don't want heathland in  B.C.," said Gordon Weetman,  UBC forestry professor and  coordinator of the nine-member  Salal/Cedar Hemlock Interagency Research Project  (SCHIRP).  "Heathland is a rundown  ecosystem and the evidence sug  gests it's hard to reverse that  degeneration. It amounts to a  permanent reduction in  fertility."  Scientists know salal is  somehow preventing trees from  taking up nitrogen and  phosphorus from the soil but  they don't know how or why.  Mechanically removing the  salal from affected areas is very  difficult because of large  numbers of stumps, and there's  no licensed pesticide to control  the shrub.  Fertilization may be a short-  term solution, Weetman says.  In initial tests, fertilized trees  grew well for three or four  ��� years, but they then fell back into a slow growth rate.  UNIFORMS NEEDED  Beaver, Cub and Scout  uniforms are needed, and any  brought to the Pender Harbour  and District Health Clinic will  be distributed to appropriate  leaders by Linda Curtis.  COUNSELLING  AVAILABLE  Stephanie Crane is available  for family counselling on  Fridays, a service funded by the  Ministry of Health and administered at the Pender Harbour and District Health Clinic.

Adventures of Holy Herb  by Peter Trower  Lou Wilson is waiting on the  platform in Detroit to greet his  older brother. They clasp  hands. It has been over a year  since their last meeting in Battle  Creek.  There is a distinct family  resemblance between the two  men but Lou is taller and more  even-featured. Clad in a well-  tailored suit of the very latest  cut, he has a prosperous look  about him. Beside his flashy  sibling Herb looks almost shabby in his neat but well-worn and  travel-creased clothes. His  measured tones contrast oddly  with Lou's self-assured slang-  laced patter. Yet each is equally  glad to see the other. There has  always been a strong bond between them.  Later the two brothers sit  talking things over in Lou's  plush downtown apartment.  "I thought I'd talk to Cox  about getting back in the carnival business," Herb says.  "Look, Herbie," Lou interjects, "why don't you throw in  with me. There's plenty of  money to be made here."  "Peddling magazines  again?" asks Herb without  much interest.  Lou indicates his well-  furnished quarters with a  careless gesture. "Do you think  I got all this stuff from peddling  books? I'm onto something that  pays a whole lot better than  that."  Herb explained, Without my  knowing it, Lou had become  head of a small band of  safeblowers based in Toledo,  Ohio. Toledo in those days was  a sort of unofficial headquarters  and haven for safecrackers  from all over the states, A  hideout, a job, the tools of their  trade were to be found in  Toledo, and in return the safes  of Toledo were the safest in the  country,  Lou tried to persuade me to  stay in the states and at least  look into his syslem of making  money. Had a stranger, or just  a friend, made the same suggestion I'd have turned it down  cold. Bul Lou was my brother,  and for that reason alone I  agreed to stop awhile and listen,  at least.  That night Herb Wilson goes  through the sort of soul-  searching reserved only for people on the brink of some  monumental decision. His conscience conjures up the trusting  faces of Christina and Alice.  For once he pays them small attention. He has allowed them to  manipulate his life for too long  and has remained impoverished  as a consequence. Lou,  whatever his methods, is patently prospering. There is  something wrong somewhere.  For several days Herb holes  up in Lou's flat and wrestles  with the dilemma. The germ of  an idea implanted by How to be  a Detective begins 'o sprout.  Apart from the potential  dividends, the safeblowing  business promises adventure  and a chance for Herb to exercise his ingenuity. It will also  allow him a chance to outsmart  and get even with all those tight-  fisted 'pillars of the community'  who tossed pennies in his collection plate.  Lou continues to press his  case. "You can join my mob,"  he offers.  "No thanks," says Herb, his  mind made up at last. "I can  organize my own and you can  join it if you want to."  Herb already has an idea in  this regard. Lou has mentioned  the difficulty in finding a strong  and reliable explosive. Herb  recalls a deserted laboratory in a  basement in London, Ontario,  long ago. Reaching in his  pocket he withdraws a well-  worn billfold and from a secret  recess produces Malcolm's old  formula. He has carried it like a  good luck charm for many  years.  "This was dad's," he says,  showing it to Lou. "He said it  was ten times better than  anything they had back then.  Let's make some up and test it  out. Maybe he was right."  The die has been cast and  Herb is entering a totally new  profession. He is, as ever, a  methodical man and sets out to  master safecracking from the  ground up, to learn it like a  discipline.

Every year we climbed up into the gallery to watch the sitting of the House when the  estimates for the NFB would be  up for discussion. We always  gave a sign of relief when they  were passed.  We did not know then that  something would happen in  September 1945 that would  change our lives. That was when  Igor Gouzenko went to the  RCMP with his list of what he  claimed were the code names of  certain people in our government service who were spying  for the Soviet Union. The police  brushed him off.  In the U.S., however,  Richard Nixon and Joseph McCarthy of the Un-American Activities Committee who were  listening, made contact with  Gouzenko and put pressure on  Prime Minister Mackenzie King  to hold an investigation. Reluctantly he appointed a commission to look into it.  They used unscrupulous  methods. A number of innocent  people were arrested in the middle of the night and held for 40  days of questioning without access to their lawyers.

The teachers had travelled  from as far as 100-Mile-House  to attend and their reaction was  most favorable to the conference, said David Short,  director of the school district  resource centre. The convention  is held annually and it is aimed  primarily at those who teach at  the secondary level.  The conference was opened  by Dr. Jan Walls, senior vice-  president of the Asia Pacific  Foundation, who spoke on  "The Pacific Challenge."  Workshops on a variety of  topics were offered during the  morning and afternoon, with  emphasis on Pacific Rim educational opportunities.  A luncheon address entitled  "Cooperative Management"  was presented by Bill Hughes,  president of Howe Sound Pulp  and Paper. Hughes gave a very  clear breakdown of the  cooperative   partnership   bet  ween Canfor and Oji of Japan.  Stan Garrocl, social studies  department head of Coll-  ingwood School, West Vancouver, stopped by the reception desk to pass on congratulations and thanks for the conference.  Garrod is the creator of the  new Grade 10 Social Studies  textbook and program for  British Columbia.  "I'm thrilled with the positive  feedback I've received and I've  also had the chance to share  ideas with former students and  colleagues," he added.  Police news of week  SECHELT RCMP  October 19 at approximately  8 pm a 1980 GMC pickup  driven by Adrien Nicky Wallace  lost control on a curve 2 kms  north of the Pender Harbour  Golf Course. The pickup  rotated 180 degrees and went  off the roadway down a 40 foot  rocky embankment, coming to  rest against some trees near the  bottom.  Wallace and his passenger  Rae Fitzgerald were not wearing  seatbelts at the time of the accident and were thrown from the  vehicle upon impact, according  to police.  Both Wallace and Fitzgerald  were taken to St. Mary's  Hospital by ambulance.  Wallace was pronounced dead  on arrival and Fitzgerald was  admitted in serious condition.  Wallace resided at Maple  Road in Egmont and Fitzgerald  lives in Madeira Park, B.C.  The RCMP are continuing to  investigate the accident.  GIBSONS RCMP  A New Westminster resident,  aged 28, was arrested at 4:30  am, October 20, at the Seamount Shell premises on  Highway 101 and has been  charged with break, entry and  theft, according to Gibsons  RCMP.  Under investigation is the  wilful damage (smashed windshield) done to a 1970 Chev  pickup parked in the Langdale  ferry lot between October 17  and 21.  There were three motor vehicle accidents in the district the  night of October 21 and 22. No  serious   injury   has   been  reported.  Each occurrence involved a  single vehicle only. Extensive  damage was done to all the  vehicles, say police.  Terry Dewitt's vehicle, a 1976  Datsun, overturned on Highway 101 in Hopkins about 2:15  am, October 22 after failing to  keep to the right of the centre  line, police said.  Donald Baron's 1988 GMC  overturned about 11:40 pm, October 21, at Joe Road and  Highway 101.  Two men, both aged 39, were  taken to St. Mary's after a vehicle overturned near Point Road,  Hopkins, about 8:13 pm, October 21.  Driver of the 1977 Chev was  Les Hanson, and the passenger,  Mike Vaughn. The vehicle left  the road and rolled over.

Sunshine Coast School District #46  presents  CHOIRFEST '88  Wednesday, November 2  7:00 pm  Roberts Creek Elementary Gym  Come and hear the choirs o/ the Sunshine Coast perform  The Gibsons Library  Association took their fundless  plight before Gibsons Council  last week. The council was  quick to assure the library  association that funds could be  found on an interim bajis to  keep the library open.  The previous week a delegation to the Sunshine Coast  Regional District had told the  regional directors that if money  wasn't available the library  would have to close its doors on  December 31.  The library had been expecting that, in accordance with the  Feeney Report, a district-wide  referendum would be set up to  coincide with this fall's elections  and that, if the referendum were  to pass, a Library Commission  would be set up.  That plan had failed in  September when Sechelt refused  to go along with it and it required unanimity to be successful.  "Council can advance funds  from next year's budget,"  Mayor Diane Strome told the  library delegation at the regular  council meeting on October 18,  "but we have to find out if the  SCRD is willing to hold a  (specified area) referendum."  Such a referendum would see  Regional Areas E and F being  asked to support the library.  Library research indicates that  two-thirds of the users are from  outside the municipal boundaries.  Alderman Peterson, Gibsons  representative at the SCRD,  told the meeting that Director  Jim Gurney had made a motion  that a specified area referendum  be held as soon as possible in  the adjacent regional areas.  "But I don't think funding  will be available from that  source until the Spring," said  Peterson. "Permission has to be  granted to hold a referendum."  Library spokesman Bob  Nygren stated that the Feeney  Report was almost two years  old and nobody had pushed to  get a referendum on it by election time.  Alderman Reynolds noted  that the last time council had  discussed the library funding,  Director Gordon Wilson had  been in attendance at the council meeting and that the town  council had been strongly in  support of a library commission  at that time, as recommended  by the Feeney Report.  "Director Wilson was as  shocked as I was at the regional  board meeting," said Alderman  Peterson, "to find out this problem had arisen again.  "We haven't been crying  wolf," Nygren assured council.  "We've got our back to the wall  and we have to put pressure on  the regional district to contribute."  Mayor Strom told the library  delegation that council would  speak to the directors of Areas  E ant F to assure there was a  referendum.  "With that assurance we  could advance funds. We will  take the initiative on the issue  and set up a meeting with the  area directors. Somebody is going to have lo get through to  them."  In other council business,  Alderman Kunstler told council  that she was not impressed with  the efforts of the Tourism Task  Force, citing an article on the  Sunshine Coast in Westworld  magazine.  "It only has one very small  reference to Gibsons," said the  alderman. "Jim McDowell has  articles available for an advertisement featuring the town,"  said Alderman Kunstler.  The discussion ensued after  receipt of a request from the  Tourism Task Force for a town  contribution to a publicity fund  for the Sunshine Coast from  Port Mellon to Lund.  Council also seemed willim  to join a proposed extension of  the Gibsons-Langdale bus service along with Regional Areas  E and F but reiterated a reluctance to reopen the roller  skating rink without guarantees  of adequate supervision.  In his report to council, planner Rob Buchan noted that the  Gibsons Economic Strategy  Committee would have an interim report for council in the  near future; that there was an  application received for the  development of 15 acres south  of the town's 40 acres on Shaw  Road; and that there was also in  the offing a proposal for a  75-acre development in the  Gospel Rock area.  "The latter is a major  development which transcends  the boundaries of the  municipality and the regional  district," said Buchan. "I  believe that it is important to  stress in this connection that the  interests of all will be  protected."  MP pays tribute  Longtime residents Tom and  Elsie Des Lauriers were  honoured at a dinner in the Gibsons Legion Saturday night on  the eve of their departure to  take up residence near family  members in Langley.  MP Ray Skelly was in attendance, paying tribute to the  selfless hours of work that the  Des Lauriers had devoted to the  support of the NDP during their  years on the Coast.  He also, since there is an election campaign, briefly sketched  the main issues in the campaign,  which he describes as the most  important ever.  According to the federal  member for this constituency,  the issues are free trade, which  he sees as a very real threat to  the future of Canada; the alleged absurdity of the purchase of  nuclear submarines; and the  onerous and regressive imposition of a major sales tax which  could be expected after the election.  Besides his work with wife  Elsie for the NDP, Tommy Des  Lauriers also served as president  of the Roberts Creek Legion  and was active on the Sunshine  Coast Trades and Labour  Council.  Several speakers paid tribute  to the selfless community efforts whch had marked the Des  Lauriers' time on the Sunshine  Coast.  Elsie and Tom Des Lauriers were guests of honour at a farewell  reception which was also attended by MP Ray Skelly.

It is an energy, an  essence. What we choose to do  with it determines its nature.  No sign in the zodiac has as  much innate power as Scorpio.  People born when the Sun is in  that sign (October 24 to  November 22) can spend a  lifetime exploring the potential  constructive and destructive use  in their personal power.  Others feel that power, and  its potential inevitably makes  them nervous. Anytime you  want a clear example of the  pigeon-holing that is done with  Sun Sign astrology, tell someone that your sun sign is  Scorpio and watch the expression on their face.  Some will leer slightly, (Scor-  pios have been labelled very sexual) and some will noticably  withdraw. Most people who  have read a little of the pop  astrology that's available have a  clear idea of the potential  negative power of a Scorpio.  Only a few have grasped the  magnificent potential of the  positive side.  However, if you were born  with the Sun in Scorpio, and are  over the age of 14, you probably  have a better idea than anyone  about the destructive potential  within you. Nobody spends  more time examining the depths  of their own souls than a Scor-  pionic person (this includes people with their moons in  Scorpio).  You are well aware of every  dark corner of your being and  have no doubt spent a lot of  hours rummaging around inside  yourself to find more. A Scorpio's ability to look within  themselves is only exceeded by  their ability to wallow in what  they Find.  What you may forget, when  you get too self-absorbed in  disembowelling yourself, is the  awesome potential you have for  healing the world. You do have  power.  And the darkness that you  find in yourself is nothing compared to the light that you can  radiate if you choose to use  your ego energy in that direction. You have the power to  transform the world, but you  have to start with yourself.  All that introspection and  suffering becomes sheer self-  indulgence unless it is part of  the self-transformation process.  You must choose, at some point  in your life, to leave your own  depths and rise like a Phoenix to  share yourself with the rest of  us.  Realize that each time you explore that darkness in yourself  and bring it into the light, you  feed an incredible amount of  positive energy to us all.  Everytime you refuse to allow  yourself to be lost in negativity,  and focus your energy on the  positive, you contribute to the  healing of the world around  you.  This planet, and this race of  man, needs a powerful amount  of healing. You can best serve  that end by first healing  yourself.  The times call for the energy  of healthy Scorpios, and there is  little time left for self-indulgent  wallowing. You are needed  now.  Your guide to  the finest in  area dining  A listing of  restaurants  and pubs  ToooM  IhCeml  NIGHT ON THE TOWN  Opening the front door of the Cornerstone Tea House,  we were greeted by the wonderous aroma of freshly baked  raisin scones. A fire was burning in the hearth on this misty Saturday afternoon and we chose a daintily-set table  close to the welcome warmth.  Kathy Love, our gracious host, soon supplied us with a  hot pot of Earl Grey tea and the promise of food to  follow. For two hungry reporters, this was indeed, good  news.  We were delighted when a plate of the most light and  fluffy scones ever created arrived at our table soon after.  Since it's not considered polite to devour scones, we  restrained ourselves and took the time to spread whipped  butter, homemade jam and a dollop of whipped cream on  top. Of course, Kathy had made the jam as well. It was  unbelievably delicious - we recommend the peach and the  plum.  Built in 1913, the Cornerstone Tea House was first owned by a local doctor before being restored and converted  into a tea house by Kathy and husband. Obviously, the  character of this historic house is part of the charm of having afternoon tea there.  An added plus is the opportunity of a spiritual reading  with Mikhaila who uses the Voyager Tarot cards. At $10  for a half-hour session, this can be a fun and exciting way  to conclude the afternoon. Reservations are recommended  for Mikhaila.  The tea house, located at the five-corners in Lower Gibsons, is open Saturday afternoons during the fall/winter  season. Reservations are suggested. However, Kathy is  quite willing to open her doors for group reservations (say,  after the theatre). She will even bake to your request.  So, with tummies full and a warm feeling all over, we  exited the Cornerstone Tea House. Quite frankly, we can  hardly wait to go back.  Average meal prices quoted  do not include liquor.

The members who serve at  the kitchen during the winter  and at the bar all year held their  annual Host and Hostess tournament with the following  results.  In the Hostess Section Helen  Milburne took first place with  Celia Meda second and Ruby  Head third.

The teams  that don't are waiting for sponsors to be finalized.  So players and parents are  asked to take a look at their  team names because after today  just the sponsor's name will appear without the coach's name.  Now for the scores in the 8  and 9-year-old division:  Sechelt Band won their game  against GBS with a score of 5 to  0. Shop Easy took Leif Mjanes'  team by a score of 2 to 1. In the  10 and 11-year-old age group  Nick Bergnach's team goes  undefeated by beating Shop  Easy with a score of 7 to 1.  In the other game Sechelt  Band deserved its first win by  beating GBS 6 to 2.  Coaches and parents should  remember not to cancel a game  because of the weather before  going to the field. Sometimes  (actually most times) you'll look  at the weather a couple of hours  before the game and think it is  bad, but when game time comes  around it has cleared up.  So a good rule to follow is arrive at the field for your game.  If it is still bad weather, then  cancel the game.

We play our games on Sundays at 12 o'clock (gives us time  to wake up and do some stretching).  October 17 Gibsons defeated  Wakefield by a score of 5 to 0.  In the other game Sechelt Chiefs  beat Lighthouse Keepers with  the same score.  Once a schedule is drawn up.  the standings of the league will  appear in this paper.  Heart  fund  curling  There is still time to enter the  Heart Fund Curling at Gibsons  Winter Club October 29 from  3:30 to 6 pm. If you are unable  to get sponsors, a $12 entry fee  will give you a chance to try this  beneficial heart exercise. There  will be a pot luck supper, entertainment and prizes for highest  amount of sponsors, best  costume, etc.  Please give us a call at the  rink 886-7512 or Fay 885-3575.  If you haven't stopped into  the Gibsons Winter Club yet  this winter, you're missing out  ��� on some good fun. All leagues  are under way and the ice has  been great.  There have been triple  knockouts, draws to the button,  raise takeouts and even one or  two missed shots. Most of all  there have been good times - it's  great to be back.  ATTENTION JR. CURLERS  A note to junior curlers, if  you'd like to participate and  learn the game, your time has  come. This Tuesday, October  25 is your day. At 4 pm there  are lessons.  Come on out and try the  game. Start now and you'll find  it's a game you'll play for the  rest of your life. We look forward to seeing you on Tuesday  at the Gibsons Winter Club.  All leagues have asked that I  pass a message to those who are  curling already. If you can't  make a scheduled game please  have the courtesy to call the opposition and let them know.  A team left standing without  a game can be a dangerous entity. Sometimes it's a good thing  their brooms aren't loaded.  ^  jaj   Member of  fALLIED...

Golf  Course Management and  Recreational Services Limited  has been awarded a contract of  $8,200 to do market research on  the feasibility of a golf course in  Sechelt. At last week's meeting  of Sechelt Municipal District  council, the finance committee's  recommendation to award the  contract to Gillespie's firm was  accepted.  Terms of reference for the  study were taken from the company's proposal, a situation  which disturbed Alderman  Nancy MacLarty. "1 would  have felt more comfortable with  this," she said, "if we had written up the terms of reference."  Clerk-administrator Malcolm  Shanks responded, "With a job  like this, there aren't likely to be  people on staff who know  enough about it to draw up the  terms of reference."  The initial marketing research  phase of the study, for which  the funds were approved, will  involve visiting the site and surrounding areas, interviews with  various interested parties, a  review of relevant information  in the company's files, and  preliminary research to ascertain the present level of golf demand from the local corporate  and association markets.  If the preliminary work indicates there is sufficient market  support for a golf course in  Sechelt, the company would  then proceed to phase two of  the research which would result  in 'a comprehensive golf supply/demand analysis'.  In it, the company would  recommend "the complement  and sizes, food and beverage  outlets, banquet facilities including the required degree of  sophistication and recreational  amenities requirked to attract  these markets including a  recommended phasing plan  should we believe this to be  necessary."  Breakers host Sportmen's Dinner  The Sunshine Coast will be in  for an early season treat this  year, with the Suncoast  Breakers hosting their First Annual Sportmen's Dinner. The  evening will involve dinner and  drinks with the focus on a  reverse draw down to a $1,000  grand prize.  A nice Christmas present for  the wife? Every 10th name  drawn from the barrel will  receive a free evening on the  Breakers, receiving their ticket  price back.  As well, every fifth guest will  receive a "sporting gift" surprise.  Headliners for the evening's  entertainment will be M.C.  John McKeachie, BCTV sport-  scaster, former Vancouver  Canuck Darcy Rota, and Vancouver Canuck Oldlimer Dune  Wilson. For those who have  never seen McKeachie anywhere  but on the News Hour, you are  in for a treat.  He is an extremely funny guy  who will keep the night alive  with his wit and insight into  sports.  Dune Wilson is another very  humorous character who has  had 11 years of NHL stories to  fill the evening. Rota too, has a  lot to offer.  As one of the Canucks all-  time popular players, Darcy  relates well to any audience. He  is a tremendous ambassador for  the Canucks and the NHL.  There are only a limited  number of tickets available for  the event to be held Thursday  November 24 at the Sechelt Indian Hall. So be sure to get your  tickets early.  Many of the clubs around the  Sunshine Coast are organizing  tables of between five and 10....  a fun way to spend a night with  the guys you are most comfortable with. Tickets may be purchased by the Breakers, as well  as at B & D Sports in Gibsons,  Big Macs, TBS, and the  Wakefield Inn in Sechelt.  The grand prize of $1,000 is  worth the night alone. But with  a tremendous smorgasbord dinner and lively entertainment  guaranteed for the price of a  $50 ticket, hopefully it will be a  "can't miss evening".  For more information or  tickets call 885-3147.

SHOP LOCALLY  Time for salmon  spawning walks  The rains are back and so are  the salmon. The recent wet  weather has raised water levels  and chum salmon are now moving into creeks to spawn.  Like hundreds of other small  creeks along the Coast, Angus  Creek in Porpoise Bay Provincial Park plays a vital role in the  spectacular life cycle of the  salmon. Every fall chum salmon  (as well as some chinook and  coho) spawn in the clean gravel  of the creek.  The cool waters, rich in oxygen, nurture the eggs through  the winter. In early spring tiny  salmon called fry emerge from  the gravel and move down to  the ocean.  They live at first in the creek's  estuary - that area of mud and  marsh where the creek meets the  ocean. Here and later in the  open ocean the salmon will  grow and mature into adults.  After two or three years, the  chum begin their amazing  journey back to the stream of  their birth. There they will  spawn and die. The eggs they  lay will start a new generation  and the repeat of an amazing  life cycle.  Porpoise Bay Park invites the  public to visit Angus Creek and  be a part of one of nature's  most impressive displays. Free  walks with a park interpreter  are available on Sundays at 1:30  pm and 3 pm.  Meet at the changehouse on  the beach. For the sake of the  salmon, please leave your dogs  at home. Special programs for  groups or schools can be  scheduled at other times.  For further information call  Tom Bell, Park Interpreter,  Porpoise Bay Provincial Park at  885-9019.

The  Sealions were slow to start the  game.  Michael Yates scored two  Sealions' TD's in the first half.  In the second half Ryan Dempster and Jaimie Strom scored  the Sealions' second half TD's.  Coach Groenke felt the  Sealions did not play up to their  potential. He worked the  players hard the nexl week in  some terrible weather.  Last weekend, October 16,  the Sealions responded with a  60-6 win over the Westside  Warriors.  Michael Yates ran an interception, a kickoff and a punt  return back for touchdowns.  Trent Turner and Jesse Paquin  both caught long passes for  their TD's.

Or  perhaps they mean "Free Trade  with the Whole World."  It seems strange to me that  our Minister of Trade has not  even read the particulars with  regard to this topic.  If either our local M.P.'s or  the Honourable Mr. Crosby,  Minister of Trade would explain  exactly what is involved regarding all that would take place  with regard to the various industries and what would take  place when one crosses the  border physically by vehicle or  by plane. Would it mean we  could go across the border and  buy a car or anything else and  not pay any duty? Would it  mean our money would be  equal in dollar value? Who  would it hurt?  Everyone I talk to does not  have the slightest knowledge of  what the "Free Trade" involves, and I am talking about  people that have had an excellent education as well as  those that are not so well versed  in education.  Mr. Crosby may have read  some of the paragraphs with  regard to this topic but to my  knowledge has not really been  clear as to what would take  place, if "Free Trade" were to  come to pass.  Here we are approximately 4  weeks from a federal election  and I am very confused as to  who to vote for since I know nil  about what Free Trade is all  about. I am very sure there are  literally hundreds who are in the  same situation when it comes to  voting, and who to vote for, in  Canada.  There has not been anything  that I know ol" that has given a  clear and definite meaning of  what would take place if Free  Trade were to become law in  Canada. 1 am a Canadian  citizen and I was born in  Canada and therefore 1 sincerely think we merit a proper  meaning of informing Canadians just what Free Trade is all  about. I am for one not going to  vote for something that I have  about.  Furthermore 1 am only  among hundreds who are  thoroughly confused with  regard to who to vole for. Kindly clear this problem up by having all the nominees of all the  various parties give a clear and  concise explanation of what  "Free Trade" is all about and  what the consequences would be  if it comes to pass as law by being voted in. This is a scary issue  to me as well as to a great many  other Canadians all across  Canada.  I trust there will be a very  definite answer to this queslion  when il comes to listening to all  ihe various nominees when they  speak io the people of Canada.  Mrs. G.E.

The Sunshine Coast is a  veritable Garden of Eden - the  devil being the lack of reliable  public transportation.  Before making any move to a  new area, one looks carefully at  price, climate, health facilities,  recreation and shopping  facilities. Therefore, the Sunshine Coast would seem ideal,  until the car breaks down or the  ferry schedule changes.  Families grow and their  transportation needs grow proportionately for medical, dental  appointments, classes, games,  visiting, etc. Another  automobile is needed and then  another and more parking is  needed for facilities.  Teenagers, in their growing  independence, accept rides from  their peers or from strangers,  with disastrous results.  Public transportation is needed now. The Coast Minibus for  seniors and handicapped is in  constant use.  Many seniors and handicapped have not, as yet, made use  of the minibus but have depended on the already beleaguered  friends and neighbors for  transportation. Most families  seem to require two or three  automobiles, and large  driveways.  The less fortunate walk or rely on old and untrustworthy  automobiles or the aforementioned neighbors.  The federal government has  spent thousands of dollars on  training and job creation. But  that money is wasted when the  prospective client cannot get to  class, an interview, nor to the  job which was created for them.  The provincial government is  Never voted,  apathy shatters  Editor:  Up until today, 1 had no  thoughts on the election  because, I, the greatest defender  of public apathy wasn't going to  vote anyway. Never have, never  will, (and being 33 years old), 1  didn't think my vote would  count.  The elections are always over  in the East, before they ever  reach the West. But with a  growing pride of being Canadian, of being a British Columbian, I intend to vote other than  Brian Mulroney and his 'Free  Trade Deal'.  A little booklet came in my  paper today entitled "Some  straightforward questions and  answers on free trade".  I am proud to be Canadian!  Did you know in the Uniied  States they have no minimum  wages, no health and safety  laws. Unions are practically illegal and are against medicare,  UIC, and any kind of equity  payments to the areas of the  country that might need it the  most.  In the States, most hospitals  are private. They often turn  away people who can't pay,  sometimes even when they're  dying.  People are paid for giving  blood and they have to pay to  get it.  And free trade doesn't allow  you to go down to the States  and bring back anything you  buy there. There'll be the same  spending limits as there are  now.  Duty will be cheaper only on  goods made in the United  States. And Americans don't  make many TV's and VCR's  any more, so you won't save on  them.  Our government will probably raise our taxes because  they stand to lose more than $2  billion dollars from the elimination oE-tariffs and duties.  Statistics show foreign companies in Canada shut down  more jobs than they create.  keeping $50 per monlh from the  allowance lo single parents.  This might well be spenl on providing public transportation to  ihe jobs that they should be get-  ling.  There is a great and growing  need for public transportation  on the Sunshine Coast for all  segments of the population. We  would appreciate your  assistance in supplying that  need.  Good public transportation is  necessary to our well-being,  good commerce and to prosperity.  David C. Wells  CATCH-16 spokesperson  They replace people with  machines, close plants, and  they'll probably import stuff  from their plants in Ihe States  anyway.  They also have poorer environmental standards. Need I  go on? Il took something like  free trade for me to come out of  the closet and vote.  i On November 2|, 1 will vote  no to free trade and Brian  Mulroney.  J.C.

The average tax  rate for heavy industry in B.C.  is $30 per $1000 assessed value,  H.S.P.P. has been paying $4.40  per $1000. This means in 1988,  H.S.P.P. paid $907,000 instead  of about six million, a saving of  five million for Canfor and Oji,  owners of H.S.P.P.  While   H.S.P.P.   has   been  pocketing millions they should  have spent in taxes, local  residents have been squeezed  more and more to pay for adequate schools and services like  roads, water and sewers.  We all get shortchanged when  the biggest extractor of wealth  in the community doesn't pay  fair taxes. The profits made by  H.S.P.P. after all come from  the local workers, public  forests, water and air.  Increasing taxation pressure  on local residents is the root  cause of much controversy in  regards lo many school board  and local government initiatives.  Instead of bickering and  fighting amongst ourselves,  residents, the school board,  Gibsons and Sechelt councils  and the Regional Board should  all gel together and demand that  H.S.P.P. pay their fair share of  iaxes from now on.

Forest Service,  Sechelt Field Office will be  open to the public  Monday through Friday  during the following hours:  8:30 a.m. to 12 noon  1:00 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.  t is anticipated that the new hours will not affect  our service to the public  Editor:  Once upon a time there were  48 sly wolves who lived on the  lower side of a big island. There  really were 50 wolves but one  lived at Ihe very top of the  island and the other one prowled around several little islands  far across a big water.  Living to the north of Ihe 48  wolves were 10 quarrelsome  rabbiis. The great grandparents  of nine of these rabbits had red  coals which made the tenth rabbit so angry that he threatened  to leave ihe family. He agreed  to stay, however, when the  others said they would sign a  paper saying they thought it was  nice that his coat was not red.  'Distinct' was Ihe word ihey  wrote clown.  While all this was going on in  Rabbilland the wolves paid no  attention because they were  busy doing olher things. They  spent a great deal of time  sharpening   their   claws   and  looking at their teeth. Actually  they hardly thought about the  rabbits at all except when they  thought about eating them. The  reason they didn't eat them was  because of the magic customs  wall. There even was a magic  customs wall at the top of the  island where that one wolf lived.  All the wolves hated the  magic customs wall. Their  ancestors believe that if they  gathered together along their  side of the wall on moonlit  nights and howled the words  'manifest destiny' the wall  would come tumbling down.  They tried this many times but  ihe wall was slill there.  One day a wolf named Ronnie had a bright idea. He would  ask a rabbit if he could go  around the wall and talk to  them in Rabbitland. A rabbit  named Brian said he would be  pleased lo talk to Ronnie, so a  meeling was arranged.  This meeting was so friendly  thai Brian became convinced  lhal rabbits and wolves could be  happy singing together. He and  Ronnie did sing a duet. Standing bravely beside his important guest, Brian tried his best,  but rabbits never were very  good singers.

To carry out his plan he gave  each rabbit a pole. "Take your  pole", he ordered "and knock  the wall down!"  Some of the rabbits were  afraid of what might happen to  them, but they did as he ordered  and the wall came tumbling  down. "Now for the feast",  they shouted. But before they  could taste a single carrot or  nibble on one lettuce leaf the  wolves came bounding over and  gobbled them all up.  Lester A. Halpin  Bellevue, Washington  P.S. An athletic rabbit named  Wayne leaped over the wall  earlier because he was in love  with a wolf. He watched with  tears in his eyes and tried to sing  'Yankee Doodle', but his mouth  was full of lettuce.  Director responds  i  Editor:  I was chief (diiector general)  of the Defence Research  Establishment Suffield (DRES)  from 1979 lo 1983, so I feel  compelled to respond to the letter of October 16, "Madness of  bacterial war," from Ms Isabel  Ralph.  Ms Ralph reports lhat the  latest newsletter of the Voice of  Women credits DRES and  Canadian Universities under  contract to DRES with research  on chemical and biological  weapons of war. This is  unadulterated rubbish.  Secondly, there are zero  chemical or biological weapons  stored in Canada. Finally, the  Canadian Forces have none of  the sophisticated systems required to deliver such weapons  to any enemy.  The chemical and biological  research at DRES, conducted  by elite Canadian scientists, is  aimed exclusively at defence  against such weapons. More  specifically, this research is aimed at improving methods of  detecting gases, on protective  clothing, on decontamination  of contaminated areas, on making personnel immune to  chemical agents and on treatment for exposure to (hem.  The aims are similar in the  case of biological research - to  detect and identify dangerous  bacteria and viruses, to devise  better protective clothing, better  decontamination and a better  understanding of the manner in  which biological agents spread.  It will be apparent that the  products of such research are  jusi as applicable to civilian as  to military populations.  Concerning the matter of  "deep secrecy," the research activities at DRES are no more  secret than, say, the design activities of any house of high  fashion designing next year's  line of clothing. On July 13,  1981, the 40th Anniversary of  DRES, 1 placed a three-quarter  page invitation in the Medicine  Hat News to an Open House at  DRES, to be held July 18.  We had 3,000 visitors from  Southern Alberta: they were  free to wander through dozens  of laboratories and received an  answer to every question asked.  And while I was chief of DRES,  I, and numerous other members  of the research staff, gave  public talks and seminars concerning DRES research activities.  CH.

Society. I started to read the  pamphlets.  Anxiety consumed me, constricted breathing, pounding  heart, hot around the eyes. I  was afraid to keep reading,  reluctant to stop.  I found that I am a typical  victim of M.S. An adult, a  woman, between 20 and 40  years of age, living in a  temperate zone.  Symptoms vary greatly, from  person to person and from time  to time in the same person.  M.S. may be caused by a virus  attack or an auto-immune reaction, or a combination of both.  There is no cure. It is not  preventable and it is not life-  threatening.  I don't know what I expected  from the M.S. Society or what I  wanted, but I got an overload of  information telling me how terribly devastating the disease can  be.  Cutsie diagrams of the tingly  arm, the damaged nervous  sytem and partial or complete  paralysis. Myelin, a fatty  substance that insulates the  nerve fibres breaks down and is  replaced by scar tissue.  Messages from the brain do  not make it through the nervous  system intact, sometimes.  Remission of symptoms is part  of M.S.  The M.S. Society makes no  predictions as to how I'll do,  they recommend no specific diet  and they didn't even send me all  of their pamphlets.  I now realize, selfishly and  with surprising clarity, why peo  ple with sight impairments bad-  mouth C.N.I.B. and why people without the use of their legs  keep their distance from the  Paraplegic Society. I don't want  to hear anything else from the  M.S. Society. I know why they  shot the messenger.  I am not pleased to be the one  in 500 or so Canadians to get  this disease. I don't agree with  people who say comfortingly,  "It could have been worse."  Nonsense. It could have been  better. It could have been  nothing.  And another word of depressing wisdom. Each family is  not alloted its token share of  tragedy and then left alone. I  may start buying lottery tickets.  I still don't know how this  disease will affect me. I hope it  is in a benign fashion. I am pretty sure that my family and I can  handle it.  My symptoms are nearly  gone and my spirit is on the  mend. One day my little  daughter and I took pillows and  blankets outside and lay down  on the unfinished deck.  A warm, warm late summer  wind blew around us and made  the wind chimes in the garden  sing softly. We giggled and talked and I could feel that I was  going to be okay.  To be continued...

File No. AE-8107  The sale of scrap copper pipe  provided a humorous moment  during the SCRD Public  Utilities Committee meeting October 20.  A local resident offered to  purchase the scrap pipe for use  in making three large camels as  a Christmas decoration. Works  Superintendent Sieg Lehman  advised the committee that the  value of the tubing was around  75 cents per pound.  Director Peggy Connor felt  this price was too high for  something that "has been left in  the corner of a yard and is considered garbage."  Director Connor recommended 40 cents per pound.  This recommendation failed  and the "bidding" was on.  Director Brett McGillivray  suggested (50 cents and, finally,  director Gordon Wilson recommended 50 cents per pound, a  price which was accepted. At  this point, director Bob Wilson  raised him arm in the air and  yelled "sold!"  In other business not so  humorous, the "mort" fish  disposal problem was under  discussion again. The proposed  Hardy Island pilot project was  referred back to the APC for  further study, although the  committee is viewing the treatment plant with a favorable eye.

Coast News, October 24  Horrendous problem  Solid waste disposal  by Nancy Argyle  "There is no question that  municipalities and regional  districts are facing a horrendous  problem with solid waste  disposal," states a brief released  October 20 by the Sunshine  Coast Regional District (SCRD)  Steering Committee on solid  waste disposal.  The Steering Committee had  reviewed a discussion paper entitled 'The Provincial Role in  Municipal Solid Waste Management' with the feeling that  several concerns needed to be  addressed. In response, they  have urged the provincial  government to adopt mandatory   recycling   throughout  British Columbia, ensure a  stable market for all recyclable  material and regulate the  packaging industry, as well as  bottled and tinned products.  The brief suggests that the  problems of solid waste are in  the attitudes towards it;  therefore the solutions must  reach an objective of creating  less waste. During the Public  Utilities meeting of October 20,  Director Gordon Wilson recommended that the SCRD approach the provincial government concerning a shared pilot  project of this nature using the  B.C. Ferries Corporation as an  example.  The project would attempt to  discontinue the use of non-  recyclable items in the ferries'  Guess Where  The usual prize of $5 will be awarded the first correct entry drawn  which locates the above.

The brief also noted that the  municipality and regional  district are the recipient of all  wastes - hazardous and otherwise - even though not all of this  waste is a result of the local  area.  "It is the federal and provincial governments which allow  hazardous materials and excess  packaging to occur and thus,  must accept the responsibility,  including costs, of solid waste  disposal," said the report.  Tipping fees were also under  attack as "another tax on the  people of the Sunshine Coast  which does nothing to alleviate  the problems of solid waste  disposal." Although the money  collected from tipping fees is  earmarked for start-up grants to  establish recycling projects, the  committee is concerned about  the problems of recycling in  small communities and rural  areas.  Markets must be guaranteed  for paper, glass and metal to  overcome high collection and  transportation costs, the committee insists.  Directors Brett McGillivray  and Gordon Wilson both  agreed that the tipping fee concept was not a fair solution to  the problem of waste management.  "The tax should go against  companies who produce non-  disposable goods which create  more waste to deal with. Don't  penalize the consumer when  they have no other choice in  product packaging," said  Director Wilson.  In conclusion the brief clearly  showed the committee's "disappointment in the lack of real  committment by the provincial  government with respect to the  looming crisis of solid waste  disposal."
