Array LEGISLATIVE LIBRARY  Parliament Buildings  Victoria, B.C. V8V 1X4  91.8  The Sunshine  \mmmm7> PuhliShB  Publish^ on the Sunshine Coast    25'per copy on news stands December 10,1990   Volume 44    Issue 50  Watershed crisis  SCRD to seek injunction against logging  by Rose Nicholson  Regional District Director  Jim Gurney has servetd notice  that he will ask the board to  seek a court injunction to halt  logging in the Chapman/Gray  Creek watershed until damage  caused by recent heavy rains has  been repaired.  At the first meeting of the  new season, Gurney displayed  photos of the massive slides that  have occurred in the watershed  in the last few weeks. In some  placets the roads have been  almost completely washetd out;  in another, the main waterline  was in danger; the new intake  was threatened; one bridge was  destroyed; and throughout the  whole area ongoing slides are  continually dumping gravel into  the water supply.  "There has been hundreds of  thousands of dollars' worth of  damage," he said. "All the  repair work that Forestry did  this fall has been completely  wiped out.  "We are lucky we haven't  been without water.  "The damage to our watershed has been entirely caused by  logging. The only way we're going to get them to act is to deny  them access to the logging."  "This problem was first identified in 1974," commented  Director Jeremy Frith, "and  nothing was done about it. This  should be brought to the Integrated Watershed Management Plan (IWMP) talks."  Frith was referring to a 1974  study that was done of the  watershed that identified faulty  road building practices and  recommended then that work  be done to correct the situation.  In spite of repeated requests  from the Regional District, very  little was done until this fall,  when the Forest Service did a  considerable amount of work to  stabilize the steep slopes in the  .area.  The Chapman/Gray Creek  watershed provides water for  most of the Sunshine Coast,  and in the last several years,  considerable work has been  done to expand the system.  The problem stems mainly  from the geological formation  of the area. The hillsides are  composed of loose sand and  gravel and as roads are cut into  the slopes, the unstable  material, responding to gravity,  seeks   its   'angle  of  repose'  (natural slope) and continually  slides downwards, even in dry  weather, covering roads and endangering the facilities of the  Regional District water supply,  and often clogging the streams  with sand and olher debris.  Heavy rains, like the ones experienced recently on the Coast,  greatly accentuate the problem.  Gurney said that the newly installed Chapman Creek intake,  which greatly expanded the  capacity of the system, was  damaged considerably, and the  new steel waterline has bem  close to being uncovered in several places.  "This is clearly the rwpon-  sibility of Forestry and the provincial government," declared  Director Gordon Wilson. "We  should be looking for some provincial money. Local taxpayers  should not have to bear the  brunt of this."  The 'notice of motion' that  Gurney brought forward at the  December 6 meeting will give  the board time to consult  lawyers and the motion to seek  a court injunction against the  logging will come up for further  discussion at the next board  meeting.  Mayor Small shapes  Gibsons Council  by Joel Johnstone  Ih the last ceremony where  she would bear the title of  mayor, Diane Strom lifted the  weight of the mayor's chain of  office off her shoulders and  passed it on to the now Mayor  Eric Small. ,  On that note, Small took the  controls, saying "Let me start  off with a real vote of thanks to  Mayor Diane Strom for a job  very well done in difficult times.  Stick around, we're going to  need your help."  But Small needed no help in  getting down to business. His  'inauguration speech' was brief  and to the point.  "We have a strong assortment of aldermen here, some  with previous municipal experience and for that I am certainly grateful. I think the  challenge of this council will be  to work in concert with other  municipalities on the Coast."  The key point made though,  Small said, was to not put a  burden on the citizens in the  form of taxes even though there  e may need to be a "slight increase".  A few days later, Small told  the Coast Netws the tax increase  cannot be estimated until a  budget begins to take form.  But, with property assessments  released this year by the provincial government varying from  40 to 120 per cent increases on  the Coast, Small says one of his  priorities is to bring the mill rate  down to ease the crunch on taxpayers.  In his speech, Small said that,  though some taxes can be def-  ferred, he doesn't want to see  anyone giving up their home  and, in co-operation with other  municipalities, controlling  growth seems to be the most  Mayor Eric Small received Ihe Gibsons Chain of Office from  now former Mayor Wine Strom at tat wttk'i Inauguration  ���JodJohMMetpkoto  cautious approach in doing so.

Must services be cut?  Tax Increase clouds  looming over Sechelt  by Jan Michael Sherman  At one point during what  had been a routine first regular  meeting of Sechelt's new council, Mayor MacLarty was in the  process of inviting the body to  table a set of four bylaws intended to provide tax exemptions for as many non-profit  organizations in the District.  MacLarty moved to table  consideration of the matter until  the regular meeting scheduled  for Wednesday, December 19,  noting vacationing alderman  Doug Reid would be back and  the full council restored.  Assuming that discussion on  the issue was appropriate,  freshman alderman Arthur  "Art" Whistler raised his hand  while asserting that he had some  very strong views on the subject  of tax exemptions, his tone  making it clear that these views  were of a negative nature.  Whistler noted that very  careful thought and consideration should be given to any such  exemptions "... considering  that by my calculations, taxets  will be going up by 45 per cent  in Sechelt (this year)."  Whistler's calculations were  made on and his final figure  derived from Sechelt's provisional budget which was received by Mayor MacLarty and  council on Detcember 3, day of  Ms. MacLarty's Inaugural. (At  that time, noting that the provi  sional budget was a "wish list"  which would be drastically  altered, and wanting her and  her aldermen a chance to study  it, MacLarty had suggested that  if the media had no objection,  she would release it soon. The  budget was not released as of  the meeting of Detcember 5).  It took a moment or two for  the import of Mr. Whistler's  remarks to fully penetrate ihe  chamber. First on the uptake  was Alderman Bob Wilson  who, getting the chair's attention, vigorously made the point  lhat Whistler's comments regarding the subject of lax exemptions were out of order at this  lime. MacLarty nodded, and  the council quickly passed the  molion lo table.  Speaking to the Coasl News  the next morning, Director of  Finana Art Lew was agitated  and anxious to dispel the notion  that taxpayers in the Distrirt  were in for a massive tax raise  on the order of what Alderman  Whistler had suggested would  be the case.  "The only way that large a  tax rise could come about would  be if the council (simply) passed  the provisional budget intact,"  Lew remarketd, adding that  "This never happens."  Lew did admit that "Unless  we cut back on services, it's  almost inevitable that some  kind of tax rise will occur." He  paused   for   a   moment   and  chuckled softly: "But maybe we  can buck the trend���and be so  damned efficient that we can  maintain services with no increase in costs."  Lew went to great pains to  make clear that the projecting  of any final (tax rise) figure  from a document such as a provisional budget was not only a  waste of time, but could lead  the public to worry unnecessarily.  Mayor MacLarty basically  echoed her Finance Director's  views regarding the incomplete  nature of the provisional  budget, but took another tack  on taxes.  "Remember that old tv commercial���'you can pay me now  or you can pay me later'?",  MacLarty said with a laugh.  "Well, that's where we're at in  terms of taxets. We could (artificially) hold down taxes this  year, but what happens next  year? We've got to try and be  realistic. Sechelt is expanding,  there are many things���important ones���that need to be  done. Do we borrow? Go deep  in debt? 1 said in my (ampaign  that we're like a new family,  that we can't afford to burden  ourselves with a lot of debt."  As for Alderman Whistler,  the mayor was completely  understanding. "He's new and  he's enthusiastic. We're all going to make mistakes as we go  along. He'll learn."   Serving the Sunshine Coast since 1945  !�� Coast News, December 10,1990  comment:  I*  Is it now time  to reorganize?  Retgardless of whetther new Alderman Art Whistler or  Setchelt's Financial Planner is more accurate in calculating  that the provisional budget will see a tax increase for the  district municipality of 45 or 37 per ant ind even allowing  for the pruning that will be done before the provisional  budget becomes official, it is apparent that the taxpayers  in that municipality are facing a fair-sized increase in their  taxes.  It was with some amusement we recognized some of the  prime movers of the Enough is Enough coalition to have  ���been among the driving forces when the Village of Sechelt  was restructured four and a half yean ago. It was said at  that time the new distria municipality would need only in  extra office person or two to administer it. Now the  municipal hall is bulging at the seams and the outgoing  mayor insists that the district muniripality is woefully  understaffed.  There is no growth industry like the growth of government and there is no end in sight.  The rural taxpayers of the Sunshine Coast, too, are facing major tax hikes this year ind Gibsons is chronically  strapped for cash. Perhaps this is the time for i Joint  Committee of the three local governments to be formed to  study the costs of government and recommend how the  process can be streamline and simplified.  What is needetd is a serious and thoughtful approach.  The skeptics on the Coast are far too wiry to fall for  hoopla and the hard sell. But taxes are starting to hurt in  all segments of the Coast and if there was an informed and  fact-filled rationale for simplifying our government structures, perhaps the taxpayer would listen.  A welcome voice  The Voice of Women have added their welcome voice to  the call for a less bellicose stance by the Canadian government in the crisis in the Middle East. In a government  which has done little to commend it since first elected in  1984, the supine and obsequious position adopted by  Mulroney and Clark towards the bellicose foreign policy  of George Bush is a national shame.  Perhaps a psychiatrist could explain why American  presidents feel compelled to sulk the international stive as  though they were forever playing Gary Cooper in High  Noon heading for the final gunfight. Be that as it may,  Canada's role as the crippled and comic sidekick to the  American hero is downright embarrasing.  ���from our files ���  We Remember When  S YEARS AGO  Local doctors, members of Physicians for Social  Responsibility spoke to an audience of about 50 people  at Davis Bay School to mark the occasion ot the Nobel  Peace Prize presentation to two founding members of  Physicians Against Nuclear War,  10 YEARS AGO  Between Tuesday and Saturday, 20 centimetres of  snow were recorded at Gower Point and on Friday night  temperatures dropped to minus 65 degrees Celsius.

Not an unspacious  cupboard and perhaps not  always alone in there, but in a  cupboard nonetheless.  I say this, because, as my  senior friends keep telling me to  my incredulity, 1 am still a  relatively young man, but I have  been watching the self-,  disembowelling of this most'  blessed of countries for a,  quarter of a century or more rM ���  it was the raped and looted  landscape of the Klondike gold',;  fields which first gave me what  has become an enduring symbol'  for Canada ��� and, God help  me, I have been an increasingly  incredulous observer of the  local political scene, to say  nothing of the provincial scene  and the travesty that passes for  national politics for a dozen  years, forced to the contemplation by my job as a community  newspaper editor.  I say keep me in a cupboard,  please, because my patience  grows thin. I have never suffered fools gladly, but now the  boiling point is never far away  and I really don't want to inflict  the scorn I feel for the follies I  perceive.  Having preambled thus at  length, let me assure you dear  readers, nonetheless, that this is  a voluntary appearance in print.  I begged and cajoled the editor  to turn me loose. Not only, I  argued, do I have something to  complain about, but maybe,  just maybe there is a point to be  made, an attitude, learned which  will serve even my antagonist  well hereafter. He graciously  concurred to look over what I  offered and give it consideration.  Carole Rubin appears in print  this week with a letter which  makes reference to a piece written by Jan Michael Sherman  about violence against women,  an article written to mark the  anniversary of the hate-filled  slaughter of 14 young women in  Montreal a year ago.  Be it clear that alone among  the editors practising the craft  on the Coast last week, Jan  Michael Sherman saw fit to  mark the anniversary of the  Montreal massacre of female  engineering students with more  than just a perfunctory news  blurb.  In my view it was a timely  and sensitive article. Ms Rubin  finds fault with six words out of  about 1500. The words are:  "dark-haired, diminutive but  no-nonsense;" and "fetchingly  flambuoyant",  One by one: 'dark-haired'  cannot be considered sexist  because men have dark hair  sometimes; 'diminutive' means  short or small of stature; 'no-  nonsense' means business-like  or purposeful. May I note that I  have known adults and two year  olds of both sexes who could be  so described. How are these  terms sexist?  'Fetchingly flambuoyant'  may be slightly different. Mr.  Sherman is somewhat flambuoyant himself and it may be  that the adverb fetchingly may  just connote that he found the  lady so described attractive. Is it  going to be a punishable offence  in Ms Rubin's great new world  of tomorrow for men to find  women attractive and admit it.  How sad.  Meanwhile Ms Rubin manages about 150 words and  manages to charge 'sexism at its  most patronizing'. She finds the  words 'inappropriate, offensive  and smacking of self-indulgence  on the part of the writer'.  "Clearly," she concludes,  "Mr. Sherman needs to examine the state of his relationship to himself, his sex, and to  women." What militant tripe.  Mr. Sherman is 25 years happily married, he has warm relationships with his mother and  his mother-in-law, and with a  daughter who, not uncritically,  adores him. He works closely  and well with strong women at  the Coast News. How is Ms  Rubin doing in the key areas she  chose to enumerate?  Ms Rubin would no doubt  acknowledge that she is a proud  feminist. Fair enough, we all  need pegs to hang our identity  on. But if her interest is really to  help form a social consensus  which will improve the lot of  women and others oppressed in  our yet grossly imperfect sociely, then she'd best learn not to  shoot her allies.  In a nutshell  Edu-Canada: an adventure  by S. Nutter  In '69 a young brother of  mine was being the legal advisor  to the Canadian Pensions Board  in Ottawa, a civil servant  somewhat to his surprise. He  had got the job from having  been a lawyer of course, but  also a quite vigorous President  of the Canadian Legion in the  West, and the Legion had a lot  of continuing palaver with the  Candian Pensions Board.  He moved his family there  from Winnipetg, two girls and a  boy all in high school. His wife  became Superintendant of  Music for the school district and  he became also its Chairman of  Finance. They lived in a split-  level on the river south of town  and all was well.  Ottawa of course is a funny  town. As we all know, it is not  one of those capital cities of the  world which grew naturally out  of leadership in trade, government and war, like Rome,  Paris, London; but wu one of  those spots chosen sometimes  capriciously like Canberra,  Brasilia, or Washington, simply  because they were not one of the  other bigger jealous places.  Ottawa seems to be one of  those places that people either  hate or love. When 1 lived there  in the late 40's and 50's, it seemed a small kind of town (city)  and I loved it. Part of this wu  that nobody made much more  money than the rest. The head  of our outfit, the Government  Film Commissioner, made, I  think, $15,000. Well I mean,  you can talk to a guy who  makes $15,000.  It was of course bigger and  beefier when brother Phil and  his family arrivetd in '68, but  still a relatively small town really. What surprised him, he and  Audrey, was that the kids  thought it wu really great.  They got out on the town,  visited the Houses of Parliament, the Gallery, the  museums, even got into the dusty old archives. It was not just  skating on the canal at the  seasonal bash, they actually, it  appeared, found it splendiferous to be in Ottawa, their  nation's capital.  Their father, an entrepreneur  if .ever, despite bring for the  nonce a civil servant, recognized  that this was not something that  should be denietd to other kids,  across the great bosom of the  country, from sea to sea. He  dreamed up the notion of  'Educanada*.  The idea was that you could  get 3000 kids from all parts of  Canada into Ottawa through  the summer and give them an  economically feasible 10 days  seminar in their nation's capital.  Phil, I have to say, is pretty  good at this kind of stuff. He  got two schools, two miles  apart, for the summer. He  covered the gymnasia with  broadloom, designed plywood  roomettes, got in bunks, two to  a room, a desk, two chairs and  a mirror. Girls in one school of  course, boys in the other.  There was by luck a nurse  who lived part-way between the  schools. He used the school kitchens and hired imaginative  cooks. He got regular school  buses, painted them EDUCANADA, and got lively, bilingual, knowledgeable and singing bus drivers. The thing wu  really a gu.  I had had a bit of a hand at  the beginning with the prospectus and used to go up from time  to time from Toronto. They  had a night set aside u 'Civics  Night', Wednesdays, and u the  thing got to be known they were  pulling almost anyone they  wanted  to  answetr questions  from the stage.  A point had been from the  start of what age a high school  student would be best for this  program. The concensus had  been Grade 10. It wu Grade  10's then, chosen on a strictly  representation by population  buis from all over Canada and  into the Arctic, fat and sassy it  might be from our kitchens,  bouyed certainly by their experience of being together, who  put the questions to the country's leaders on Wednesday  nights.  There wu really nothing like  it ever seen before. I wu there  one night when the President of  the Bank of Montreal wu standing on the platform at  something near midnight with  real tears coining down his  cheeks. There may be people  who won't believe me but I  assure you this is true.  So what happened to this  perfectly lovely and successful  show?

TELEPHONE: MM111  M* MM121  TOUFME    1-M0M3-2061  Editor:  Your recent article on Ian  Mahood's presentation last  week left out some facts that I  think should be pointed out.  Mr. Mahood stud that there is  a monopoly of four logging  companies that control 80 per  cent of the logging industry in  this province, and that this  monopoly is supported and subsidized by the Ministry of  Forests through our tax dollars.  Mr. Mahood gave a chilling  example of the state of forestry  in BC when he told the audience  about a meeting he had with a  Ministry of Forests Official.  Mr. Mahood was proposing a  project of thinning second-  growth forests which would  provide more jobs in the industry. The Ministry Official  said he would first discuss this  proposal with representatives of  MacMillan Bloedel and Fletcher  Challenge���competitors of Mr.  Mahood's client���then make a  decision. Mr. Mahood said that  wu "BS" and asked the  rhetorical question, "Who is  running the Ministry of  Forests?" The proposal was  denied.  Mr. Mahood said that the  monopoly and the Ministry are  responsible for the loss of jobs  in the forest industry. He  recommended a labour-intensive industry where logs  would be processed locally and  exported as finished products.  He also said the pulp and paper  industry should be supplied by  the waste products of logging  and not by raw logs. Currently  we are exporting raw logs  (essentially exporting "jobs")  and some raw saw logs that  should be part of the value-  added export business are ending up u pulp and paper.  The figures presented by Mr.  Mahood that night and in his  book are staggering. Between  1961 and 1987 the volume of  timber cut in BC increased 269  per cent. In that same time  forest industry jobs increased  only 29 per cent. In 1984 the US  forest industry wu providing  three times more jobs per cubic  meter logged than the BC forest  industry provided.  In terms of public revenue  generated by the industry, logging of BC public forests in  1987 generated a net revenue of  2 cents per cubic meter. In the  US National Forests that share  the border with BC the net  revenue generated wu over $10  per cubic meter. This is a difference of SOO per cent and it  sure aedds up when we ronsider  that BC logged 80 million cubic  meters in public forests that  year. This happens because the  Ministry of Forests lowers the  stumpage rates for the big companies.  The small companiets get the  shaft because they pay the  regular stumpage while the  monopoly gets the breaks.  A Vantouvw Sun article  showed small logging companiets in the Fraser Valley paying up to $22 more per cubic  meter than the big companies.  Mr. Mahood said that the  subsidized lower stumpage rates  given to the monopoly by the  Ministry of Forests "sympathetic administration" have  kept 1.6 billion dollars from the  BC treasury coffers.  British Columbians are being  robbed���robbed of jobs and  robbed of money that is owed  to this province by private companies who profit from public  resources.  This province could���and  should���have a vibrant, diverse  forest industry that provides far  more jobs than it does now and  generates far more money for  the province, which would improve our quality of life all  across the board.  I am grateful to Mr. Mahood  for speaking up, and laying the  blame where it belongs���not on  concerned members of the public who are trying to bring about  positive change.  The pendulum is finally starting to swing back after decades  of forest companies not being  responsible to the public, whose  lands and forests these are.

Anti-abortion view on massacre  Editor:  Your article entitled "Mass  Slaughter Remembered:  Violence against women" moved me to empathize with the  families and fellow students  who lost a dear one as a result  of one man's brutality with a  gun.  I also couldn't help but be  stirred again, as I am daily, at  the remembrance of tens of  thousands of other femalets who  are premeditatively murdered  each year in Canada. The settings for these murders are the  sterile, highly efficient operating  rooms of our hospitals, including our own St. Mary's in  Sechelt or, thanks to Dr. H.  Morgentaler and others, private  clinics'.  The murderers are not the insane Marc Lepine with a gun in  hand but men and women we  trustingly go to for medical advice and treatment���some are  family doctors here on the  Coast. The women who lose  their livets are not as big as the  women slaughtered in Montreal. They are also hidden from  the human eye, though not  from medical technology, nor  from the eye of God.  The tragic irony of all this is  that the feminist element of the  female population of Canada  has been one of the strongest  proponents of abortion on demand. When will the feminists  of Canada start taking a stand  for these youngest and most  vulnerable of our women instead of seeking the freedom to  destroy more of them? When  we deny the rights of one portion of our society we deny the  rights of all.  As one well known feminist  hu sung, "Though I'm just an  embryo...I am Woman."  Cathy Williams  Rubin inflamed by  alleged 'sexism'  Editor:  Jan Michael Sherman's article in the Coast News,  December 3, 1990, on Violence  Against Women was an astounding example of the level of sexism in contemporary society  and journalism.  Mr. Sherman, in his article  written to expose the problem  of continuing violence and fear  in our community and society at  large, exposed at the same time  his own approach to the female  sex by describing the women he  was interviewing as "dark-  haired, diminutive-but no-  nonsense," and "fetchingly  flamboyant."  Such "descriptions" have no  place in a newspaper article at  any time, much less one dealing  with sexism and its violent ex  tremes. These terms exemplify  sexism at its most patronizing.

Dm. 10 to  Sun. Dec. 16  - by Jod Johnstone  ��� Joe Belanger was all smiles  -last week as the new Gibsons  Council and Terminal Forest  .'Products singled out the  ; Maritime History .Society for a  'little good will.  . At last Monday's Inaugural  ���Meeting, Mayor Eric Small ap-  .pointed Councilor Ed Steeves as  the town's official liaison to the  -society and its Discovery Project.  ��� "That took me completely by  surprise." Belanger said afterwards. "I didn't think for a  minute they would do something like this. It just goes to  show how important  (Discovery) is starting to  .���become."  Then, two days later, Belanger found himself hosting  representatives of the Sunshine  Coast Regional District, the  Town of Gibsons, the society  and members of the media, as  Rob Liden of Terminal Forest  Products oversaw the first 10  logs to be donated for Discovery's ship building being laid  out for display and a rainy  photo session.  SCRD Director Peggy Connor credits Director Gordon  Wilson for getting the logs rolling.  "It was Gordon who sent letters around to all the communities for donations. This is  the first big, tangible one we've  received."  "The SCRD are strong ad  vocates of this project," Connor said, because the potential  tourism attraction "is a real  good thing for the Sunshine  Coast."  Connor said the SCRD cannot offer financial support but  is throwing its support in by  helping with promotion.  Connor added "It's the  Town of Gibsons' turn."  Small and all the elected  councilors expressed their moral  support of the society's plans  for Discovery during last  month's campaigning. Councilor Margaret Morrison was  present throughout, bearing the  rainfall with all the others, as  the Town of Gibsons formal  representative.  Spotlight on library  by Jod Johnstone  ' 'The cramps condition of the  ���Qlbsons Public Library has  ���Councilor Margaret Morrison  up in arms.  'i. was appalled at the  space," she told council last  Tuesday. "There's no shelf  space for books. The toilet is used by everyone from staff to  public and joggers and strollers  ijy."  The library consists of about  1700 square feet, which Morrison says should be closer to  5000 by the province's own'  standards, t  "We certainly should have  more space," she says, and  "The library board is planning  to go out and find the money."  Morrison estimates expansion  to be somewhere in the range of  a quarter million dollars but  points out some specifications  laid out in the Municipal Act of  BC have provisions for grants  and aid to help such projects.  Librarian Myrna Short is  pleased with Morrison's enthusiasm and agrees there is an  incredible need to do something  about it.  Mayor Eric Small has  directed Rob Buchan, acting  secretary at Gibsons Council  last Tuesday, to have a letter  drawn up to the provincial ministry inquiring about standards,  grants or available monies.  i  I  *  CHRISTMAS  COUNTERATTACK  DECEMBER 8 - JANUARY 3  We stop a lot more than  400,000 vehicles during  our Christmas CounterAttack roadchecks.

Coast News, December 10,1990  On Sechelt Council  Mayor MacLarty makes changes  ���by Jam Mkmrt. Sktmm  It was out with a little of the  old, and in with enough of the  new to have created something  of a stir among the 50odd  citizens attending least week's  Sechelt Inaugural Council  Meeting at Rockwood.  Bid goodbye was out-going  mayor Tom Meredith, who was  presented with a plaque and  gavel by Joyce Kolibas, while  exiting aldermen David Wdls  and Robert Graham both  received commemorative plaques. While no public tears were  shed during the transition, there  wtu a feeling of sadness and  some awkwardness as the ritual  was played out.  Administrator Malcolm  Shanks officiated at the swearing in of Mayor-Eletct MacLarty  and hejr council. At one point  Shanks, faced with swearing in  perennial alderman Joyce  Kolibas and newcomer Peggy  Wagner simultaneously, joked  that "This is going to be difficult. We only have one  bible���but you've both got to  touch it!"  Shanks then proceeded to  swear in returning aldermen  Robert Wilson and Michael  Shanks, and newcomer Arthur  Whistler. Alderman Doug Reid  was on vacation "...somewhere  nice and warm!" (noted an informed���and envious���source),  lending a somewhat lop-sided  look to the council table once all  were seated.  Ms MacLarty, who at one  time had considered being  sworn in in sweats, appeared in  a striking mauve pant suit and a  more somber mood than is  usually her wont. This prompted a member of the media to  dredge up the old joke about the  car-chasing dog who at some  point catches a car���and then  wonders what the hell he's gonna do with it. The inference that  she might have bit off at least as  much as she can chew as mayor  It's official.  ���Jan Michael Sherman photo  was not lost���or denied���by  MacLarty when the joke was  repeated for her benefit.  Laughing, she said "At that  moment in time I knew how the  dog felt!"  In her very opening remarks,  MacLarty allowesxi as how she  was assuming office with mixed  feelings which embraced excitement,  trepidation,  eagerness,  enthusiasm, pride and humility.  "A system of aldermanic responsibility for  specific neighbourhoods  wilt be introduced to ensure that Iheir special  concerns will be brought  to the attention of appropriate committees or  to Council as a whole.  A Mayor's Hot Line  will be introduced that  will be available to all,  24 hours a day. AU  legitimate calls will be  dealt with promptly.  ...ln-camera meetings  of Council will be kepi  to a minimum. Only  those meetings that have  to do with personnel or  possible real estate dealings will be closed and,  as soon as it is prudent,  the minutes and content  of those meetings will be  made public."  MacLarty   announced   her  decision to turn the clock back  on a major recommendation of  the Cuff Report. To wit:  "...Our individual standing committees were  combined in the past  year to three 'super'  committees. Although  this may work well for  larger communities, it is  my view that the smaller  committees with their individual chairperson and  responsibilities are more  suited to a Municipality  of our size.  Also, to ensure that as  many residents as possible may attend committee meetings, I have asked our Clerk to once  RENTING?

Of course, additional  committee meetings may  be held at the call of the  Chair and those meetings  will, to the best of our  abilities, be advertised."  With regard to her riding-like  "areas"  to which  individual  aldermen have been assigned,  MacLarty emphasize that, to  avoid any perceived conflict of  interest, none of the aldermen  live in the area for which he or  she is responsible.  The Village Core will be  Doug Reid's beat, Arthur  Whistler will monitor East Por-'  poise Bay/Selma Park, and  West Porpoise Bay/Arena  becomes Peggy Wagner's  responsibility. This leaves  Michael Shanks with West  Sechelt, Joyce Kolibas with  Davis Bay/Wilson Creek, while  Robert Wilson rides herd on  Sandy Hook/Tuwanek.  "The aldermen responsible for each area will  liaise with the community  association (if any) on a  regular basis and will be  advertised as the alderman responsible for that  particular neighbourhood. The alderman will  bring legitimate complaints or concerns by  residents in his/her area  lo the attention of a  committee of council or  to council as a whole if  he/she deems it  necessary."  Following her address, Ms  MacLarty received the 1991  Provisional Budget, and, noting  that she wanted a chance for  herself and council to study it  more closely, begged off temporarily insofar as releasing it to  the media was concerned.  Then, flexing her parliamentary muscles for the first time,  Mayor Nancy MacLarty  brought forward several procedure resolutions and evinced  some small delight as Council  passed each one unanimously.  Her municipal honeymoon  was officially in session.      j  r^m  Ztntn Ttmtquemiygoesin  beftof* etfW HeSfflt effOOS U  20" COLOUR TV  c/w  ��� Remote Control  ��� 99 Channel Capability  ��� Cable Ready  ��� Black Monitor Style  Cabinet  ��� Programmable     -     ^ammamm  .

"I wish  to have an open and accessible  council."  When Mayor Small moved a  vote of thanks to retiring  mayor, Diane Strom, spectators  applauded heartily. Diane has  devoted the past five years in  the service of Gibsons, both as  alderman and mayor.  When the mayor's chain of  office, a gift to the Town  several years ago from then  Mayor Larry Labonte, was  passed to Eric Small by Diane  Strom, it made one wish for  other occasions during the year  when the mayor could don this  handsome symbol of office.  Alderman Steeves was away  in Norway attending to an official duty in world curling. Not  a sample of his attention to  Town business, we trust. Alderman McNevin took the oath of  alliance to the Queen "under  protest". None of the aldermen  could be heard by the spectators  seated a few feet away. Speak  up, please; only the mayor is  allowed a small voice.  "Fifty-five per cent of voters  came to the ppll," said the  mayor,"an exceptional turnout." Indeed it was, yet it indicates that not much more than  half the town was awake that  day, and takes no account of  those who could vote but didn't  take the trouble to register.  .ELECTION REVIEW  Since we have previously said  here that disclosure of sources  of campaign funds in municipal  elections should be disclosed to  the public, we were encouraged  to read that Victoria MLA and  NDP House Leader Robin  Blencoe was recently reported in  a Times-Colonist publication,  that municipal election procedures are due for a revamp,  and calls upon Lyall Hanson,  the minister, to set up a public  inquiry immediately.  The public should be consulted on its views of the  residency regulations for office  holders, he says. Blencoe feels  that those who make decisions  should be the ones who pay  taxes in that municipality, "and  experience that decision."  Here! Herel  Blencoe notes that certain circumstances allow some voters  to vote twice for the same  school board.  A little noise from us might  stir the minister in this regard.  CHRISTMAS SALE  On Saturday, December 15  from 10 am until 4 pm in the  WI Hall, the Heritage Society  and the Festival of the Written  Arts will hold a bake and  poinsettia sale.  Gibsons author, Stewart  Dickson, will be in attendance  to autograph copies of his  Broken Wing. A splendid  Christmas gift! A display of art  and photography by Elphinstone students will add to  your enjoyment.  Crafts people who would like  to participate can call Lilian  Kunstler at 886-9058.  CITATIONS  "The 26 British Columbians  appointed to the Order were  selected from nominations from  all corners of the province."  The booklet Order of .British  ColumMa lists the citations of  those invested, the very first  group to be selected since the  establishing of the order last  year.  We have already read of  Grace Maclnnis receiving the  order, but it is a record worthy  to be repeated. After university  in Manitoba and at the Sor-  bonne she became a key  member of the fledgling CCF.  In 1933 she was delegate to  the party's founding convention  in Regina, to be followed by  many senior offices in the party.  She was an MLA in BC from  1941 to 1945, and an MP from  1965 until retiring in  1974���BC's first woman MP.  Always considered the champion of womens' rights, Grace  Maclnnis was ever a "strong  and effective advocate of social  reform".  Among the BC citizens invested: Bryan Adams, noted  vocalist and composer; Rick  Hansen of wheelchair fame;  Lori Fung, the first Olympic  gold medallist in rhythmic gymnastics; Peter Wing of  Kamloops; Gurdev Gill, immigrant from India in 1949 and  now a noted medical doctor.  The citations make heartwarming reading, telling not of  heroes but of sound, thoughtful  citizens who are ever mindful of  their community's good. The  Gibsons and District Library  has a copy of the booklet Order  of   British   Columbia.  ^em^uUulaUottA  tc  goy  V Mot JlaMneU  oh (Atii  <8o6kn Weddnp  e4tsWmHaa*y  ���RT ���  (iflecrmeiri Hlk  49t0 - 1990  eKLe^-fl  4,-*L  ������"^^j mt* _  OPEN HOUSE  Saturday, Dm. 15  T  \\      1pm - 3pm  y S37 Eiglecratt Drive  Take a look - you'll love It! four  bdrm. executive view home In  prestigious Oceanmount Estates.

Aifi. f -f    m   -    -.    . community news  Coast News, December 10,1990  ROBERTS CRFFK  Creative plans for elementary school  by Jiak* LelglitoB, M6-3S41  Creative architectural plans  designed to give Roberts Creek  Elementary what it really needs  in additional classrooms, expanded administration space,  and upgrading the present  facility are expected to cost S1.8  million, $800,000 over budget.  School Board Trustee Tim  Anderson at the meeting Thursday night at the school,  presented this dilemma and  spoke briefly of our options.  The first option is to use the  money presently allocated. Mr.  Anderson stated that with the  $1 million available to the  school immediately, five  classrooms could be added and  the current building brought up  to Are code and not much else.  The school currently occupies  four portables and enrollment is  expKKd to continue to increase. The antiquated heating  system, the inadequate staff and  administrative area and any major maintenance on the present  facility would have to be addressed in the uncertain future.  New classrooms would  decrease the priority of our  needs, putting further addition  well into the future.  If this is totally unpalatable,  the school could inform the  Ministry of Education they are  seeking additional funding (say  another million) to allow for the  proposed addition, as is. Mr.  Anderson warned this would  delay the addition at least  another year and with signs of  an economic recession, the  money may just not be  available.  Also the original million may  be used elsewhere by then.  However, without the current  addition, Roberts Creek  Elementary's needs would regain high priority.  If the $2 million could be acquired, Roberts Creek could  build a facility to be proud of;  worth waiting for; not just a  partial addition. Or could it?  Will this money be enough in  two to three year's time, or due  to rising costs, will we again  have to settle for less? Uncertainty surrounds this approach,  making it also unsatisfactory.  It was decided at the meeting  to seek information and support  from MLA Harold Long and  the Minister of Education, the  Honourable A. Brummet to attempt to seek a compromise.  Time is scarce, howetvw. To  avoid building delays, Mr.  Anderson felt a decision  necessary at the mid-January  board meeting. All those affected by this are encouraged to  write to the Honourable A.  Brummet, Minister of Education, Parliament Buildings, Victoria, BC V8V 2M4.  Luckily the playfield is  covered by a separate account.  Work will proceed in July 1991.  It is expected that sod will be used to hasten down time. Limited  access is expected in September.  CHRISTMAS CONCERT  An invitation is extended to  the community to attend the  dress rehearsal for the Roberts  Creek Elementary School's  Christmas Concert on December 18 at 1:15 pm and the concert itself on December 19 at 7  pm. Admission is free,  however, voluntary donations  of non-perishable food for the  Elves Club will be collected.  CAROLLING  Remember to come carolling  December 18 at 7 pm. Men at  Seaview Market.

Around this time of year the  words Merry Christmas and  Happy New Year trip off the  tongue easily and that is when 1  really start to look into faces.  I was very fortunate growing  up when and where I did, in  West Virginia. My father never  slapped my mother���and I  remember only one spanking  from my father and that was  because I'd been disrespectful to  my mother.  My home had a mother,  father, sister and brother, three  ���bedrooms and a bath and an attic and basement. Presents were  hidden all over the house and  who knows what might have  been hidden in the chicken  coop, garage or barn?  On Christmas morning,  Blossom and Lady greeted my  brother as if it were any other  day when he went to the barn to  milk. My grandparents, two  uncles and two aunts and my  cousin always came to our  house for Christmas and stayed  three or four days.  There was a canner pot of  beef vegetable soup that was  two days in the making, for dinner on Christmas Eve. My Aunt  Edna always brought the  homemade rolls and filled  cookies. Aunt Bernice brought  the puddings.  We always had a crock of  real mincemeat aging in its  cider, brandy and wine���but  not the wine made from our  own grapes. On the shelves were  bottles of home-brew, which  was beer.  Christmas Eve was for partying and playing cards and wrap  ping gifts and people yelling  "Who's got the scissors?"  Christmas Day was for serious  eating. Following the feast was  a stomp and walk through the  snowy hills with our Beagle  hounds who flushed out a rabbit or two. 1 remember these images. We didn't know that  December 1941 would be our  last Christmas together.  HOLIDAY HAPPENINGS  The 69ers will sing in Trail  Bay Mall on December 15 at  about 1 pm.

How will the proposed GST affect prices!  A: The outgoing Federal Sales Tax (FST) is  now part of the price of new cars. So, while  they will be fully taxed at 7% in 1991,  the expected effect of replacing the FST  with the GST on the average $22,000  mid-size car is a reduction of around $850.  Q: My son has figured out it will cost $500 in  lumber to build a dock at our cottage if he  bought it now. How much will that lumber  cost with the proposed GST?  A: You can expect to pay about $512 for  that same amount of lumber for personal  use based solely on the changeover from  the FST to the GST.  Q: I know the proposed GST won't apply to city  bus fares but I take the commuter train to work.  Wit I haw to pay GST?

Not that the latter is a problem. Already several 'test' batches of shortbread and  mincemeat tarts have magically  disappeared from the cooling  racks before I've even had time  to think of putting them away  to age.  Age? Ha! In our house, aged  is when the end product comes  out of the oven. Fortunately,  it's the means and not the end  that I like because it's a pleasant  way to get into the spirit of  things.  I'm sure baking was the last  thing on people's minds last  week when Egmont was in the  throes of its second major  power failure this fall. Strong  winds pushed over trees  everywhere which, in turn,  dragged down power lines. The  result was a long, dark, cold  wait for BC Hydro and BC  Telephone crews to pick up the  pieces.  I guess it's a good excuse to  stay in bed a little longer but it's  funny how, when you're forced  into something���even something as comfortable as your  own bed���it becomes unpleasant.  Wdl, I must confess that Egmont really was quiet last  weekend. Judging by all the talk  of impending earthquakes, I  guess that's good news.  What was impressive wu the  high tides early in the week.  They were higher than they have  been in years and the resulting  flotsam has been phenomenal.

Few changes on the regional board  by Rose Nkhofeoa  There were few new (aces as  directors were sworn in by  Judge Anne Mackenzie at the  inaugural meeting of the Sunshine Coast Regional District  (SCRD) on December 6.  Mayor Eric Small will represent Gibsons on the new board,  while outgoing Directors Gerry  Dixon and Stan Dixon were  presented with plaques of appreciation for their service.  Peggy Connor will continue  as chairman, with Gordon  Wilson in his old spot as vice-  chairman. Directors Brett  McGillivray (Aiea D), Jim  Gurney (Area E) and Jeremy  Frith (Area F) were back at the  table, with Director Bob Wilson  again representing Sechdt and  Director Ben Pierre representing  the Sechell Indian Goverment  District.  One of the first orders of  business for the new board was  a decision to join the Federation  of Canadian Municipalities  (FCM), a Canada-wide organization that represents the interests of local governments at  the federal level.  In a later to the district,  Mayor George Ferguson of Ab-  Regional District Directors pose for their picture after being sworn In by Judge Anne MacKenzie.  Back row (left to right) Gordon Wilson, Brett McGillivray, Eric Small, Bob Wilson, Jim Gurney,  Jeremy Frith and Ben Pierre. Front row: Judge Anne MacKenzie, Peggy Connor.  ���Rose Nicholson pholo  botsford, past president of the  FCM, noted that one of the recent achievements of that  organization was to negotiate a  S7.14 per cent rebate on the  GST paid by local governments,  giving them an effective rate of  three, rather than seven per  cent.  Other advantages of joining  the 570 members of the PCM  were seen as increased lobbying  power in Ottawa, a network of  support and information exchange among the members of  an organization that represents  70 per cent of Canada's total  population.  A letter from Lyall Hanson,  Minister of Municipal Affairs,  reminding the district of provincial policy to provide handicapped accessibility in buildings,  was treated with caution  "This could cause hardship  to building owners," noted  Director Gurney. "Cost of  remodelling can be high. This  should be applied with discretion."  "We could also point out,"  added Director Gordon Wilson,  "the number of provincial  facilities, notably the ferries,  that are not accessible."  A request from the Town of  Gibsons for financial support  for the Outreach Teen Centre,  on the grounds that the  organization benefits youths  from beyond the town's boun-  daries, was referred to the  finance committee.  "They (Outreach) will have  to provide us with their budget  and financial statement," stated  Gurney. "We should be careful  of this sort of thing. It's another  example of a local government  being asked to fund a social  function which should be funded provincially."  The Regional  District will  support action being tatai by  the Association of Vancouver  Island Municipalities (AVINft  to protest the severely curtailed  distribution of natural gas from  the new pipeline.

In a Letter to the Editor  printed in the December 3 Coast  News, Steve Skimmeland claimed that he was not allowed to  state his case before the court.  But in a prepared statement,  read at the December 4 hearing,  Burke said Skimmeland was interrupted after reading for nearly 20 minutes from an 18 page  document, most of which was  irrelevant, and dealt with subjects as varied as the ferries and  the GST.  "There were 11 other people  waiting to be heard," said  Burke. "It would have been unfair to them to let him go on.  Many of them had taken time  off work or had come from  Vancouver for the hearing."  In reply to Skimmeland's  charge that a decision had been  made before he got there, Burke  pointed out that the Court had  already dealt with three or four  similar cases, and a precedent  had been set that would allow  for a downward revision of the  assessed value of both land and  houses   on   the   Chekwelp  Reserve, where all the properties, including Skimmeland's,  were located.  Apparently Skimmeland was  under the impression that,  because he was living on leased  reserve land, he was not liable  for land tax, "but according to  law in B.C." said Burke, "lease  land is taxed."  "He won his case... We  allowed him a 25 per cent reduction on the value of the land,  and we asked him what he  thought his house was worth.  He bought the house for $5000  in 1985 and valued it at $14,000  now. We .agreed with him. That  was considerably less than the  assessed value of $22,000."  Court judges Bob Maxwell  and John Kavanagh explained  that the Court of Revision has a  mandate to rule only on the accuracy or fairness of  assessments, which are based on  'fair market value'.  Actual taxation depends on  the mill rate, which, on the Sunshine Coast, is set by the towns  of Gibsons and Sechelt, the  Regional District and the  School Board.  "Taxes have gone up," said  Maxwell, "but that's because  prices in the real estate market  have increased so much recent  ly. We have no authority to rule  on the mill rate."  by Rose Nicholson  Thanks to an innovative  course now offered on the Sunshine Coast, 16 women are being trained to take their place in  the job market in occupations  that used to be the exclusive  prerogative of men. The  'Women in Trades' course will  open up to women the higher  wage jobs like carpentry, electricity/electronics, basic  mechanics, the operation and  maintenance of heavy equipment, and small engine repair.  In an interview with the  Coast News, Judie Myers, Instructor and Coordinator of  Trade Skills, and Marilyn  Magas, Instructor and Coordinator of Employment  Skills, enthusiastically talked  about the 38 week course they  designed.  In their new 'home' behind  the Shell station in Gibsons,  students receive class instruction  in the theory and practice of the  various segments of the course,  and after school hours they are  using the woodworking lab at  Elphinstone High School. For  six weeks in March and eight  weeks in June, they will have  job placements with local  employers.  "We are also putting heavy  emphasis on physical skills and  getting stronger," said Myers.  "The women tire taught how to  lift sheets of plywood and heavy  lumber and how to handle loaded wheelbarrows. These are  things that men take for granted  on the job site."  "They are also taking courses  in First Aid and 'Wen-do'," added Magas. "That's a system of  self-defense, more or less a  combination of martial arts and  street skills."  Asked whether these trade  courses are common, Myers  replied, "They've beeen around  since the 50's, but there aren't  that many of them. Whenever  there's cutbacks, these are the  first to go, yet there's always  lineups for these courses. This is  the first one on the Sunshine  Coast."  Myers and Magas have both  had considerable experience in  trade courses for women. A  member of the National Network of Women in Trades and  Technology, Myers said, "I  took a course like this about 10  years ago in Ontario.  "I started with electricity,  then found out I was really interested in electronics, so I got  into computers, and now I am  qualified to repair them."  Magas, who teaches the  students job and life skills, was  a teacher at a vocational high  school. "I came here because  my husband was working on the  Beachcombers. I heard there  was someone here who wanted  to start a 'women in trades' program, lt wasn't my reason for  coming here, but it might be my  reason for staying here!"  The two women joined forces  and prepared a proposal for  their idea. After many revisions,  and much help from Lonnie  Propas, Project Officer of  Canada   Job   Strategy,   and  Director Mary Pinnigar and  Administrative Assistant Holly  Lehman of Continuing Education, it was finally accepted.  "At first we weren't sure if  many people would be interested, but we got 50 applicants," said Myers.  As part of their planning for  the course, Myers and Magas  interviewed prospective  employers and had "a very  favourable response. Most of  them said they want skilled  employees, and it didn't matter  whether tlwy were men or  women," said Magas.  "What was more important  to them was attitude. They want  someone who is reliable and  willing to work."  If reliability and willingness  have anything to do with enthusiasm, the students in this  course will have it made. "I've  never worked with a more enthusiastic bunch," said Magas.  They're really supportive of  each other, and in the short time  since we've started there have  been some tremendous changes  in them. They are really excited  about what they're doing."  At the moment, the students  are working from 9 in the morning until 9 at night, and come  from the whole length of the  Coast, with two making the  long drive from Garden Bay  evety day.

Smaller trees  thrust up from rotting nurse  logs, like precocious children  among the giants. Only thdr  great age has saved these enormous trees from the saws. They  have been judged over-ripe and  unfit for lumber.  \fter a 10 minute walk, we  reach the banks of the Yakoun  River. Across its brown turgid  waters we spot the mutant  tree���a yellow anomaly among  its dark-green cousins. Truly  unique among conifers, the  Golden Spruce owes its distinctive hue to an obscure syndrome  that causes its needles to bleach  in sunlight.  We find our way back to the  highway and head north towards Masset, the largest community on the Charlottes. The  country is devoid of settlements  for many miles. There are stretches of dwarf trees in marshy  meadows, thick stands of larger  trees, raw swaths of logging  slash���and not much else.  Masset was once known as  Graham City, after the steamship company president who  founded it in 1909. It took its  present name from the much  older Native village, 2  kilometers northwest at the  mouth of the inlet. For many  years, Native Masset and New  Masset existed side by side. In  1961, New Masset was incorporated under the single name.  The Native settlement took the  name of Haida. Fishing is the  main occupation of both towns.  The chief factor that makes  Masset larger than the other  Charlotte communities is the  presence of a large Canadian  Forces Station there. The base  was established in 1971, as a  satellite-tracking station. It is a  typical military enclave with  rows of immaculate near-identical houses and operational  buildings, neat as new minted  loonies. Local supposition has it  that there are top secret projects  of a highly sensitive nature go  ing on at the base.  It is only a short jog from  Masset to the community of  Haida, larger of the two Native  settlements on the Island. It is a  pleasant little .settlement where  the first rww totem pole in  decades was raised, with much  ceremony, a few vears back.  Outside a large Native Arts  Facility, another pole is beginning to take shape. Three more  big cedar logs await the carver's  knives. Across the inlet from  Haida lies the legendary and  long-abandoned village of Yan.  Four other deserted villages lie  far to the west, accessible only  by boat or plane.  Now we drive east along the  top of the island, to check out  another famous landmark named Tow Hill. The road runs past  the satellite-tracking complex,  an imposing structure like an  enormous circular fence. We  pass several farms and a remote  motel. Then the black-top ends  and we broach the upper  reaches of Naikoon Park.  The gravel road narrows and  we enter a creepy forest. The  moss growth here is almost  unbelievable. It covers the  ground in a spongy yellow-  green carpet; envelops the tree  trunks; lungs from the branches like sacking. I can't recall  seeing moss in such parasitic  profusion anywhere else on the  Coast.  to be i  Gibsons  & District  'Public Library  .Hours:  sTues  _W��d.  i Thurs.  I Sat  !

The white haired, white  whiskered Almond was speaking about his tenure in the  Royal Airforce, and the sequence of events that has led  him to 30 years of residence and  influence on the Sunshine  Coast.  Born in 1923 in Leeds,  England, a large manufacturing  centre, Almond quickly learned  to despise industrial cities that  use the human spirit as fodder  for their works.  In order to escape the oppression of the city, as well as satisfy  his growing love of the outdoors. Almond would spend his  weekends in the countryside to  the north of Leeds, hiking, rock  climbing, or cycling on a "push  bike."  Almond go<es on to say,  however, that weekends in the  country were not enough. "I  couldn't stand the thought of  getting stuck in a factory,"  stated Almond, "and factory  work was just about all you  Harry Almond displays a roc king horse he crafted for his newest  grandchild, as soon as she's old enough to ride.  ���Stuart Burnside photo  could find."  The recourse to factory  work? Then, as now, education.  Public school, in those days, according to Almond, ended at 14  ("Unless one's family had  money"), so when he finished  school in 1937, he attended  night classes twice a week to improve his lot.  He continued night school  until 1941, when he turned 18  and was old enough to enlist in  the RAF.  Lighting a cigarette, Almond  exhales and says "The military  secerned to be the quickest way  out of the city, and that was  what 1 was looking for."  Almond served in the airforce  through the second world war,  from 194146, and was stationed, for most of it, in India, and  along the Burma border, a rainforest region filled with  "Snakes, lots of monkeys, apets,  tigers and disease."  While the military wasn't  what Almond wanted out of  life, his appreciation for nature  and plants, brought from dormancy by the English countryside, was fully awakened by  the rainforest.  Following the war, in 1946,  Almond returned to England  only to find a surplus of manpower in the labour force, and  jobs were hard to come by. He  returned to night school for  four more years, obtained his  machinist's certificate and, with  his new bride, applied for immigration to New Zealand.  New Zealand and Australia,  at the time, were offering to pay  the expenses of any Brits who  would move there. Almond  found, however, that there was  such a backlogged waiting list  that it might be years before  passage was obtained, even if he  was to pay his own way  (transportation was still done  largely by ship.)  Almond .smiles as he recalls  his plan for circumventing the  delay in getting to New  Zealand; it called for a trip to  eastern Canada, driving to Vancouver, and boarding a New  Zealand bound ship from there.  Almond and his wife arrived  in Montreal with $100. They  travelled to Toronto where Almond worked for a year, living  in a 14-foot trailer in an amusement park trailer court. He saved enough money to buy a 1938  Plymouth, and in 1951, he and  his wife travelled to Vancouver  where it was necessary to work  for another year to supply the  fare for passage to New  Zealand.  The Almonds finally arrived  in New Zealand in 1952, only to  return to Vancouver four years  later because of future travel  considerations; "It was easier to  plan visits to England from  Canada," said Almond.  In Vancouver, however, Almond found the employment  situation for machinists  anaemic, and in need of  something resembling a transfusion.  Adapting to the circumstances with his usual grace,  Almond took courses in carpentry and roofing, joimd the  carpenters union, and went into  the construction business.  In 1958, Almond was told  about a beautiful, sparcely  populated region wedged between the mountains and the sea,  a place called the Sunshine  Coast.  After verifying the description. Almond sold his property  in Vancouver, "Bought 10 acres  up Lockyer Road (for $1000)  built a stuck, and moved in."  He started building a log addition to the shack, to turn it into  a proper home, but, in 1965, a  chimney fire, taken to its worst  possible extremes, halted the  construction.  "It was incredible," says Almond, able to laugh at the  memory, "the fire started slowly at the edge of the roof, and  just kept going. The only fire  department at the time was in  Sechelt and we couldn't get hold  of them...It was January, and  all the water was frozen, so we  couldn't put the fire out  ourselves. A neighbour helped  me to heave all my belongings  outside into the snow."  Still laughing, Almond says  this was possible because his  house was four hours in the  burning. "It's times like this  that you find out if you're a  philosopher," he says with a  smile.  Almond sold his property on  Lockyer Road after the blaze  and purchased an acre in lower  Roberts Creek.  On this acre, Almond has  crafted himself a beautiful,  secluded home that was 20 years  in the completing...he kept adding to it. When asked if  any more additions are in the  future, he shakes his head and  says "It's too damn big  already."  When asked about the  employment situation on the  Cosist when he first arrived  here, Almond reflects and  remembers..."The pulp mill  was the only main  employer...we used to load the  boats by hand...It was good  pay, but the work was  hard...You would have to  manhandle pulp bails weighing  500 pounds, two men to a bail."  Almond chuckles, recalling  his weight at the time was 140  pounds.  Despite some initial hardship  and setback, Almond gradually  built up a construction business  on the Coast, becoming more  and more involved with the  community. In 1970, he was  asked by the late Cliff Gilker to  consider running for the position of Director on the newly  formed SCRD.  Almond accepted the  challenge, won his election, uid  went cm to serve on the board  for 12 years, five of them as  Chairman.  When the present SCRD  Chairman, Peggy Conner (who  served on the board with Almond) was asked to recall  something of his style, she  responded "He (Almond) was a  very good chairman, he took  great interest in the regional  district and was very fair, in all  his dealings."  Publisher John Burnside,  says, "In my 13 years involvement with the SCRD, Harry Almond was my model of what a  local politician should be. He  was bright, comprtent, unpretentious, ud dead honest.  Almond, though he retired  from the SCRD in 1982, has far  from finished with his involvement with the community. He  serves as alternate for the man  who replaced him on the  Regional Board, Brett  McGillivray, is presently President of the Coastal SPCA (currently working with the SCRD,  the Sechelt Indian Band, and  the local councils to establish  belter and more humane dog  control), and is President of the  Sunshine Coast Garden Society.  He hits a genuine concern for  the quality of life on the Coast  and is not afraid to express his  opinions openly. Because of his  experience, his knowledge, and  his integrity, his views are taken  seriously.  , Friendly Country Legion*  Roberts  Creek  LEGION  Branch 219  9ur sincerest apologies to the Harbour  Llghls Orchestra lor Implicating their  association with the Spinous.

I stood staring  in our cupboard wondering what the heck I was going to prepare for supper and  invisioning the pile of dirty dishes that I'd have to clean up after devouring a  mediocre meal. I was not in the mood for cooking.  Suddenly in a flash my problem was solved and my mood brightened. We could  go to the Omega! There enjoying a beautifully prepared and delicious meal with  none of the hassles, just the thing for a wintery night.  As soon as we opened the door to the restaurant I knew we had made the right  choice. It's surprising how, when you're seated at a bright and cheery table, what  looked like a dismal night automatically changes into a gorgeous view. But on  with the food.  We decided on a kalimari appetizer and baked lasagne. The squid was tender  with a light and crisp batter and was perfectly complemented by the yogurt tzatsiki  with plenty of fresh onions, fortunately something we both enjoy, so no need for  breath mints afterwards.  When our Itisagne and buttery garlic bread arrived, 1 was impressed with both  the taste and the quantity as my dining companion has been known to leave some  restaurants and go home to look for something else to munch on. Not so at the  Omega.  The end result? A great meal in extremely comfortable surroundings, with  fabulous service and a definite improvement in my attitude thrown in and all for  under $25 (not including beverages).

Breakers make plea to council  by BUly Morion  and Jan Mkhad Sherman  The first time the Suncoast  Breakers hockey club communicated with the Sechelt  Council it was by letter. It was  an impassioned plea for relief  from a situation which was  threatening to render the aging  pucksters' longtime organization defunct and extinct. Their  letter was acted upon, but not in  a manner deemed suitable to the  Breakers.  So the second time the club  decided to have words with the  powers that be���the boys showed up in person.  Mike Ryan and Jim Cray, a  couple of benevolent looking  bruisers, put their case to  Mayor Nancy MacLarty and  her new council at their first  regular meeting last Wednesday.  And while their case was pretty much a recap of the disturbing tale they told previously,  hearing it from rink level so to  speak, lent a certain poignancy  which members of council  found it difficult to ignore.  "We're here to set things  straight", said Gray, "And we  feel a bit slighted by the way  we've been dealt with."  The Breakers had their  longtime ice time yanked by  arena management this season,  and the new slot given them was  not to their satisfaction.  "We had 8 pm Mondays for  eight years", Mike Ryan informed the politicians.  "Nobody wanled it. Then we  suddenly get bumped to 9:30  (pm). We could find this easier  to understand if we were making way for little kids���but 17  year olds havi our ice time  now."  At one point the pucksters  had some rough words for  Town Planner Rob Sabine, apparently under the impression  that he'd referred to their club  and members disparagingly.  I  \ s 1   K   \ \ (  Sabine, who claimed never to  have met or had anything to do  with the Breakers, until this very  moment, passed this information on to Gray and Ryan with a  good deal of heated indignation. They, in turn, made  apologetic sounds, connected to  the possibility that their emotional turbulence over the  desperate plight of their club  held clouded their judgement  momentarily.  "Out of 44 members, 10 of  our guys showed up to play!",  Ryan lamented, credititig the  later ice time for this falling-off  in participation. "I'm being  denied���we all are���our recreation", Ryan continued, "I'm a  taxpayer." Ryan went on to  propose that a "User Committee" be set up which would  "...democratically deal with  who gets which ice time."  Alderman Robert Wilson  made a motion to review the action taken by the old council,  which had been simply to back  arena Manager Vicki Speck to  the hilt and not interfere with  the decisions she takes regarding  ice times.  But regardless of what this  "review" might lead to, the pair  of Suncoast Breakers held out  little hope for their club's  future.  "We've already had to cancel  our big tournament", said  Gray, adding ironically that  "Which is���was���the biggest  money-making event at the  arena."  Reached by telephone at  home on her day off, Vicki  Speck graciously offered  her���the arena's���side to this  issue of the Suncoast Breakers.  "I'm comfortable with the  Council's (impending) review.  The facility belongs to the  public���to the people. As far as  the Breakers are concerned, I  feel we've gone that extra mile  for them."  Ms Speck claimed that the  Breakers' change in ice time was  nothing personal, merely one of  many changes the arena  manager is faced with making  prior to each new season. She  told the Coast News that she has  to make changes in ice time  "slowly" since she must accomodate many people.  "The group that took (the  Breakers') ice time was a minor  hockey Midgets team���17 year  olds", Speck explained.  Told that the Breakers had  spoken to at least one of the  Commercial League's teams  about a possible "time swap",  Ms Speck noted that she'd  heard nothing about this and,  anyway, such a switch would be  utterly impossible. "The same  teams do not wind up using the  same ice times each week", she  explained, "So such an arrangement wouldn't work."  Speck did admit that "The  Commercial League has very  good fan support. A lot of kids  come out to watch them  play���to see a good brand of  hockey."  (One of the Breakers' charges  is that Speck and the arena are  more interested in "...selling  booze" than accomodating rink  users, and Speck did mention  that "The lounge is a good profit maker. And we want to hold  on to our license.")  Finally, Speck pointed out  that the Breakers are not the only team to have to settle for late  ice time.  "The Breakers are part of  what I generically refer to as the  'Fun League'," Speck explained. "There's the Hurricanes,  the Over-The-Hill, the RCMP,  and the Sunday Night Fun  League. They're all what we call  'mature users'. And except for  the RCMP, who start at 7:30,  all the others begin at 9:30  pm���just like the Breakers."  So, for the time being, the  saga of the Suncoast Breakers is  on hold���at least until such a  time as Mayor MacLarty and  the Council review the situation  and make some kind of determination.  But the Suncoast Breakers  aren't holding their collective  breath.  ���a  L  TERMINAL  Forest Products Ltd.

Curling a game of precision  by Hairy Tuner  Curling, like the game of  golf, is a precision game. The  curler must develop a precision  delivery just as a golfer must  develop a precision swing.  Delivetring a curling stone accurately takes many hours of  practice. The delivery must be  rhythmic, well balanced, controlled, technically correct and  executed with complete concentration. A precision delivery is  essential to a winning game.  The most common and probably most successful delivery  used in today's game involves  the slide. The first rule for a  good slide is to be comfortable  and relaxed in the hack. Place  the push leg firmly in the hack,  take a squatting position and  align your body squarely with  the skip's broom. Now, do not  take your eye off the broom  from the beginning of your  delivery motion, until you have  finished delivering the stone.  Resist the temptation to look  down at any point since this can  throw you off line.  Set both the hips and the  shoulders absolutely straight  ahead and at perfect right  angles to the point of delivery.  During the delivery, the rock  should be moved gently and  slightly forward without stretching your body too much. The  Hm Ueot'ft Cue  Bo��e  '""Loung,  In the Holl  Gibsons Legion Branch 109  DOORS OPEN 8 PM  TICKETS $12.50 ea.  , available at the bar  rock should betcome an extension of a relaxed outstretched  arm. The left arm usually has  the broom tucked under it and  is used as a counter balance to  the weight of the 40 pound rock  which is held in the other hand.  The stone may be delivered  with a forward motion, pushing  hard away from the hack, or it  may be delivered using a slight  forward motion, a backswing  and a return to the forward motion as you simultaneously push  away from the hack.  The rock is gripped with the  fingetrs, not the hand and the  grip should be delicate, not clutched. Fingertip control will provide all the pressure and lift a  person needs in order to both  lift and put the tum on the  stone.  For the out-turn, you can  either hold the handle straight  or turn it slightly clockwise. (To  about the one o'clock position),  whichever position you choose,  keep it throughout your delivery  until the point of release. Upon  release, a slight turn is placed on  the rock so that the rock will  turn about two to four times  down the ice. Too much or too  little turn will make the rock's  course down the ice an unpredictable one.  For the in-turn, keep the handle straight, or in the 11 o'clock  Drop off Your  COAST NEWS  CLASSIFIEDS  at  SEAVIEW MARKET  In Roberts Creek  until 3:30 Friday  "A Friendly People Piece"  position. As with the out-turn,  grip the handle lightly with your  fingers curled around it so that  the handle rests on a line between the first joint of the little  finger and the second joint of  the index finger. The thumb is  placed lightly on the side or upper side of the handle.  Practice putting your turns  on without any last minute  pushes of the rock handle.  These pushes may be very subtle, but they can cause the rock  to be pushed inward or outward  on either the in-turn or the outturn, resulting in missing the  shot. Even a slight push can  cause you to miss a finesse shot.  Since the proper execution of  the delivery is such an important part of the game, we will  spend the next couple of weeks  giving more tips.

Editor:  In response to the article on  "Violence against women",  there are several clarifications  we'd like to make regarding our  services.  The Sunshine Coast RCMP  Victim/Witness Services assists  victims of all typ�� of crimes  and personal misfortunes. This  includes property offences, all  Unds of assaults, traffic accidents, sudden deaths and  other occurences involving  police intervention.  Family violence is one area  we become involved in once  police contact is made or for information on legal process as an  avenue for the victim who is  contemplating reporting to  authorities. Support and  assistance is provided through  all phases of the legal process  once a formal complaint has  been made.  If for whatever reasons, a victim does not wish to report to  the police, referrals to other  agencies who can best assist  her/him are provided. In cases  of family violence, the Transition House would be recommended for further assistance.  The Sunshine Coast Transition House, besides offering  shelter from unhappy relationships, provides confidential, no  strings attached counselling,  support and life skills informa  tion that may be requited for  those .starting new lives.  We also offer an extensive  referral service, where, after an  initial assessment of the callers'  situation and needs, we can  direct them to an appropriate  service or services if our service  is not suitable.  Whether charges are laid or  not, Transition House staff will  support a woman in crisis in  whatever way is comfortable for  her. Often the abuse that occurs  between two people is not illegal, that is it is not a physical  or sexual assault. There is emotional and psychological abuse  as well and we treat this seriously.  Recent developments ai the  Transition House include a  childcare worker and whrel-  chair accessability. These addendum to our program will  help us to include more families  and enable us to assist them  more effectively.  We hope this information  will clear any confusion about  our services and who people  should call for assistance.  Thank you.

I hope you read the letter  to the Editor titled "Power to  people and the Rock," written  by someone who really does live  here and who really cares about  why he does.  Thanks  Editor:  I would like to express my  sincere appreciation to all those  people in the community who  wished me well on being chosen  Citizen of the Year.  It was a rewarding and  humbling experience and one  which could have been given to  any number of worthwhile  community-minded citizens.  However, to the District  Chamber of Commerce, the  businesses who contributed  prizes, and finally to the many  people who phoned and sent  cards, lhank you from the bottom of my heart! I shall never  forget it!  Joyce Kolibas  Sorry  Editor:  The last thing 1 wanted to do  was confuse the issue of the  Tetrahedron Wilderness (Coast  News, November 26) and I  would like to dispel the idea that  the Tetrahedron Alliance was  concerned only with recreation.  Watershed, wilderness and  old growth are an important  part of their concerns.  I'm sorry if 1 did not explain  these things adequately in the  interview with the Coast News  reporter and I hope this puts the  whole thing to rest and that  there are no hard feelings  anywhere.  John Hind Smith  Male transition homes?  Editor:  You are to be commended  for your Deccmbeer 3rd piece,  Violence Against Women. You  did exactly whal a good reporter  is supposed to do, lett the experts  speak for themselves.  My disagreement (you knew  there had to be one, didn't  you?) is with the whole  philosophy of transition houses.  Why do the women and  children have to leave their  home, facing another trauma  when they are already suffering  from one? Why isnt the victim  allowed to enjoy the home and  comforts he has worked for?  Why are the children uprooted  from friends and familiar surroundings?  One of the most frustrating  things counsellors of battered  women have to deal with is the  victim's decision to return to  their abusers. The counsellors  are corresct when they say these  women return because they  "hope for change." But over  and above that hope is the  desire of many victims to return  home. Those homes are theirs  and their childrens'. They worked for them, and they deserve  them.  It seems to me that transition  houses   should   be   for   the  abusers. The abusers are the  ones who need the shock to  their systems that romes from  sudden upheaval, not the victims. The abusers are the ont  who need to rethink theit  behavior and leant to cope with  their emotions without victimizing others, and ihey aren't going to do that in the comfort of  thdr own bedrooms.  And before all the civil libci  tarians get up in arms about  "innocent until provm guilty"  and the "righly of habeas cor  pus," please remember that  judges can and do use their  discretion to hold violent  criminals in prison without bail  until trial. They could certainly  use the same discretion to order  abusers to transition houses.  There is, as you so rightly  pointed out, far too much  violence and far too much easy  acceptance of that violence. I  would like transition houses to  be truly transitional, a bridge,  from violence to peace.  Mrs. Karen Phillips  DeOP OTt you.

For example a person who  stipulates "no children" as a  condition of rental would be in  violation ol the Family Status and  the Human Rights Acts. The  landlord who places Ihe advertisement and Ihe newspaper  which publishes il would both be  in contiavention ol the legislation  and could have a complaint filed  against them The Coast Newt  will therefore not accept such  dtscruninaloiy ads TFN  Roberls  Creek  Hall   avail.  dances.  partie  ,   weddings.  equipment   rental    Yvonne  885 4610  TFN  2 bdim  house  Gibsons area  $650  pei  mo  Use Wiggins.  886 ??77  #50  3 Bdrm. immaculate home if  Davis Bay, S900/mo.. rels. reg!,  avail.

MISCELLANEOUS  In lieu of Christmas Cards Mrs. Lily Dunlop (Kiwanis Village -C109  North Road S7, Gibsons) would prefer having a donation sent In  her name to St. Mary's Hospital.  Warning  1589 cats and dogs perished in BC last year as a result of  antifreeze poisoning. The actual number will be much higher  as only those animals seen by a veterinarian are Included In  the survey conducted by the BC Veterinary Medical Association.  Ethylene glycol, the active ingredient of antifreeze, is ���  fatal toxin. Ethylene glycol is sweet tasting and attractive to  pets, livestock and wildlife. The resulting death, following ingestion, is not pleasant.  Most affected animals contact the poison due to the  cavalier ways in which used antifreeze is discarded. Uninformed, or careless, vehicle owners contaminate the environment by discharging radiator drainage into ditches or storm  drains. As there is presently no safe way to discharge of used  antifreeze, the manufacturers (Dow Chemical A Union Car-  bide) must accept the responsibility to add taste detentnts to  these deadly products.

"The prospect of a war which  is motivated primarily to bolster  the lagging North American  economy is immoral. This conflict is not about lasting and  meaningful peare or protecting  Kuwait from .aggression, it's  about oil and money and  power." says Ottawa VOW  member Ditme Mclntyre.  The 60 women from across  Canada, attending the Voice of  Women (VOW) conference  jointly condemned the Canadian role in global militarization  and in particular the deployment of Canadian military personnel in the Persian Gulf.  Voice of Women representative will meet with government representatives today to  call for: The immediate  withdrawal of all Canadian  military forces from the Gulf  region; a halt to delivery of any  weapons or military equipment  to the region; a genuine com-  mitment from the Canadian  government to promote non-  military solutions through the  United Nations; the imnwdiate  withdrawal of all nuclear,  chemical and biological  weapons from the Gulf region;  an international emergency conference to address all military  occupations in the region. The  conference should have  delegates from all governments  in the region, including the  PLO. At least SO per cent of the  delegates to this conference  should be women.  VOW has endorsed a campaign launched by the international coalition, Women for  Mutual Security, to achieve the  above goals.

Many of the women in the  course are single mothers and  the sole wage earners for their  families. Although there are  prospects of good wages when  the course is completed, money  is obviously not the motivation  at this stage of the game.  "Those who were on  Unemployment Insurance or  Social Assistance continue to  get those allowances," said  Myers, "but the others get a  minimal wage, lt varies accor- '  ding to their dependents, but  for a single person with no  dependents it's something like  $1.75 an hour."

Other instructors will have  the same high qualifications.  Myers will be teaching the electronics section, and Clwryl  Cochrane, who has built her  own log cabin, will be giving instruction on the use and  maintenance of chain saws.  Other instructors will teach the  students how to handle heavy  equipment and perform routine  maintenance.  So far they have acquired the  use of a backhoe, an excavator,  a dump truck and a snow plow  and have been offered the use of  a field to practice in.  "We're hoping to have a  'community involvement day'  and invite the job hosts to participate in a day long event,"  said Myers. "We plan to have  teams compete in a variety of  events that will demonstrate the  skills that the women have  learned.  "It will be a chance to show  the community what we've been  doing."
