 LEGISLATIVE LIBRARY  Parliament Buildings  Victoria, B.C. V8V 1X4  COAST^NEWS  50 cents per copy on newsstands  ESTABLISHED    1945  June 15,1992 Volume 46 Issue i. *f  Chapman hatchery purchase underway  by Stuart Burnside  Lawyers for ihe Sunshine Coast  Salmonid Enhancement Society  (SCSES) are finalizing the purchase of  the Chapman Creek Hatchery from  Scanmar Seafoods Lid.  SCSES president Sean Reid said thai  although the May 31 purchase deadline  has passed, community donations are  still flowing in and the society may not  need lo use a recently secured $50,000  loan from (he Sunshine Coast Business  Development Association (SCBDA) to  complete the $ I:W.OOO deal.  "The fundraising is still going on,"  Reid said, "and we're still getting siz-  Pender  residents  object to  land use  Lawyers from both sides work to finalize deal  able donations." The SCRD presented  the society with a cheque for $20,000  al its regular board meeiing Thursday  night.  Reid noted lhat additional purchasing money would be needed beyond the  $150,000, however, as the GST on the  sale amounted lo some $19,000. There  is also Are insurance and other assorted  taxes lo be considered in the initial cash  outlay.  Reid said that even if the SCBDA  loan isn't required to buy thi1 hatchery,  the money might still be used by the  society.  "We might need to use the loan  money for the conversion of the site,"  Reid said. "It's good to know it's there  if we need it." Converting the site was  part of an original SCSI'S plan to raise  $200,000, rather than $150,000 for the  project. The extra $50,000 conversion  money was for creating things like a  viewing platform and educational facili  ties at the hatchery.  Reid noted that, to help with conversion, a sub-organization called "Iriends  of Sunshine Coast Salmon" was soon to  he introduced which would recognize,  thiough sile plaques, Ihe contributions  of individuals and companies toward  select projects at the hatchery. Groups  could donate just toward the viewing  platform, for example, and have a  plaque with Iheir name prominently displayed on the structure.  That plan, as Reid points out. is a  detail in the bigger picture, however.  "Right now we've got to start thinking  about operatating expenses." Reid said  Running Ihe hatchery is expected to  cost in the region of $70,000 a year  Reid said the SCRD's Economic  Development Committee had prepared  a business plan for the operation of the  facility and there was talk of the Min  istry of Forests getting involved to help  wiih annual funding. Operating funds  will also come from the Department of  fisheries, with an expected annual cost  of more than $15,000 still required from  the public and business.  bylaw  by Jane Seyd  There were fewer people in  the Madeira Park community  hall this time, and several  speakers said they were tired of  discussing the proposed Pender  Harbour land use bylaw. But as  the second public hearing on  the regional district's Bylaw  3.17 progressed Wednesday  night, the message to Ihe board  was essentially the same as it  was at the first public hearing  in February: residents aren't  pleased with the land use  bylaw.  Since Ihe First public hearing, the regional district has  made "little twiddles on the  lines," said resident John Mnl  com, but "the bylaw hasn't  changed."  And while concerns of individual property owners have  been addressed, said residents,  they still aren't pleased with the  general direction of Ihe bylaw.  In particular, residents said  Ihe bylaw is detrimental to the  future economic development  of the community because il  eliminates many commercial  and business uses of properly  currently allowed on residenlial  land and does not allow for any  vacant commercially zoned  property.  "You guys are rezoning  Pender Harbour into a bedroom  community," said Malcolm. "I  don'l like that."  "If this bylaw goes in, there  will not be a vacant piece of  commercial properly in Area  A," said Bill Hunsche (of Pender Harbour Realty).  Brett McGillivray, chairman  of the regional district's planning committee and Wednesday's public hearing, told residents once zoning for Bylaw  337 is in place "il doesn't mean  it's written in stone."  Bul Hunsche argued zoning  changes aren't necessarily lhat  easy to achieve. "Zoning  changes take time," said Hunsche. "They take a lot of local  input. And if you're dealing  with a residential area there is a  pretty good chance for significant opposition."Several residents also told the hearing the  new bylaw devalues their property, by taking away potential  business uses.  "It's not Shaughnessy,"  Frank White told the planners.  "(The bylaw) seems much too  restrictive in the area at this  time."  An ongoing source of controversy, Bylaw 337 would  establish new land use zones  and subdivision districts in  Area A, and would replace the  existing Bylaw 96, which currently allows a much more  encompassing use of land in  many areas of Pender Harbour.  turn to back page  Sechelt ponders  policy review for  waterfront homes  Ken Moore (left) and Leo White helped net rubber "racing ducks" at the finish line during the  Chapman Creek annual Duck Race, held to raise funds Tor the Sunshine Coast Home Support  Society.

Joel Johnstone phi no  by Stuart Burnside  Sechelt council is considering taking a hard look at municipal treatment of waterfront  property owners who want lo  build wharves out into Porpoise  Bay. Current municipal policy  dictates that all applications to  build such structures       be turned down out  of hand.  At a planning  meeting Tuesday,  Porpoise Bay residents Alan Young  and Bill Dickerson  made separate pleas  of council toward  changing the policy.  Young asked to be  allowed to build an "environmentally conscious" private  moorage wharf, and Dickerson  wanted permission to build a  float he could tie his boat to; a  float that his and other children  could also swim from.  "I'd do whatever was  required to make it safe wilh  respect to protecting the environment," Dickerson said.  Both men felt they were  being mistreated by council  because they had done "everything right and legally" in  applying for building permits.  "There a lot of people who  just put their wharves in, wilh  no regard for ihe legal procedure," Young said. "When I  asked (those people) aboul it,  they advised me to do Ihe  same...now here I am, trying to  do il right, and you won't let  me."  Young said he had been in  'We have no  control over  tbe next  owners of tbe  property'  -Nmtcv Mactattv  consultation with various government agencies (Fisheries and  Oceans, Coast Guard, etc) for  approval and to make sure his  proposed structure wouldn't  harm the environment, and had  changed the plans of his structure to fit their recommenda-       tions. He added that  his structure would,  in the interest of  protecting the environment, be constructed from "one  of a kind" for the  materials. "Most of  the (illegal) ducks in  Porpoise Bay are       made   of   Styro-  ' "     foam,"        Young  noted, "ihere are now bits of  Slyrofoam floating all over the  place."  Council initially expressed  regret for what appeared to be a  basic "unfairness" in the municipal policy, but said nothing  could be done.  "The people building the  (wharves) might want to do the  right thing...but we have no  control over the nexl owners of  Ihe properly," Mayor Nancy  MacLarty said, identifying one  of the main municipal concerns.  Sechelt planner Rob Buchan,  however, while agreeing council  couldn't go against established  policy, recommended establishing a sub-committee to review  the overall waterfront situation.  His recommendation was  accepted, leaving hope for  Dickerson and Young, with ihe  details for the subcommittee to  be worked out later.  Regional directors' stipends boosted  Regional directors may be  accused of dawdling over some  decisions, hut when il came to  providing their own retroactive  paycheques last week, members  of the board were quick to act.  The new "Directors Renu-  meration Bylaw," retroactive to  January 1992, provides for a  four per cent increase in  stipends for elected representatives - the same increase given  to staff at Ihe regional district.  Rural representatives now get  $7,600 per year while municipal  directors receive $5,450. That  amount is increased for chairman Peggy Connor, who gets  $21,800 and for vice-chairman  Brett McGillivray, who gets  $16,400.  In addition, directors receive  an another $5,000 for chairing  any one of the board's standing  committees or for sitting on the  Economic Development Commission, lo a maximum of  $10,000 extra. In practical  terms, this means that Area D  director Brett McGillivray, who  chairs both Planning and  Finance,  and Area E director  Jim Gurney, who chairs Public  Utilities and sits on the Economic Development Commission, will both be receiving  $10,000 over their regular  stipend.  Previously, directors were  able lo receive only one extra  stipend for chairing committees,  Alternate directors who sit in  for elected representatives for  over two consecutive meetings  missed without permission from  the board will also receive a  pro-rated portion of lhat director's stipend.  But that won't apply to the  most obvious example of Area  A alternate Cy O'Leary, who  has taken over most of director  Gordon Wilson's duties since  Wilson was elected to the  provincial legislature in October.  Instead. O'Leary has been  provided with a retroactive  cheque for the regular stipend  due to the Area A representative, said SCRD treasurer Mike  Phelan, while Wilson has not  been receiving payment from  the regional board.  inside  community page 7  editorial     page 4  Atari       page IS  miliar       page 5  sports        p������17  rmbrWhen  past 19  CCHAtwanl  page 7  'Amnesty' executive elected from Coast  Shirley HaU  by Roxanne Gregory  Shirley Hall sits quietly on her front  porch overlooking North Lake outside  Egmont. In her hands she holds a dozen or  more letters written to heads of state. There  are letters to China, Malawi and India, and  one to the governor of Louisiana.  "Human rights abuses around the world  are getting worse," Hall says. Hall is a  human rights activist and 25-year supporter  of Amnesty International. She was recently  nominated the Sechelt delegate to the annual  general meeting of Amnesty International  (AI), Canadian Section (English-speaking).  The AGM was held at the University of  Saskatchewan between May 22 and 24. Hall  was elected national secretary. "We now  have four members on the executive from  Western Canada," she says proudly.  Amnesty International is a world-wide  human rights movement which opposes torture, 'disappearances,' extra-judicial executions and the death penalty. It works impartially for the release of prisoners cf con-  science. Prisoners of conscience include anyone who is detained anywhere for their  beliefs, ethnic origins, sex, language, religion or political affiliation, provided they  have not used or advocated violence. AI has  formal ties with the Uniled Nations, the  Council of Europe, the Organization for  African Unity and the Organization of  American States.  AI works with refugees and monitors ���  abuses of the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights. With a membership of more than one million people worldwide, AI is totally independent of govern-,  ment or corporate funding and relies solely  on its membership to fund its multi-faceted  range of activities.  "Our Sechelt group has adopted a prisoner of conscience in China. Letter writing to  heads of state in support of improved prison  conditions and the release of prisoners of  conscience is just one way we can make a  difference," said Hall.  turn to page 3  ( Coast News, lune 15, 1 ���>*>2  ||  Elphinstone  Secondary  _News_  EXAMS  June 17. 18 Cross grade exams"  June 17  900  1110  Eoglish 8 4 9  Math to ft tOA  Soc St 8 �� 9  Fnglisti 104 11  Soc St 10 & 11  Sciences. 9& 10  Math 8, 9 & 9A  'Exams In most other courses will be held in classes  June 15 and 16  June 18  I 20  900  II 10  1 20  TAKE 1st YEAR UNIVERSITY ON THE  SUNSHINE COAST  Capilano College is planning to oiler a 1st yeai university  (Arls) progiam al its 2 campuses in Sechelt next school  year  Grade 12 students and their patents aie invited lo attend  an inlormation session at Flpliinstone June 17. 9 00 am  Just in time for  Graduation.

Gibsons  886-2023  Tougher burn controls considered  by Charles Hart  Residents are looking for tougher controls  on hurning regulations within the Town of  Ciihsons, but council learned Tuesday that  even existing regulations aren't being  enforced.  Administrator Dan Legg noted that the  fire chief has ihe responsibility to enforce  ihe existing bylaw, but does not lake action  on burning of land clearing materials within  ihe 30-nwtre restriction from neighboring  properties because of Ihe lack of an alternative disposal site on the Sunshine Coast.  11'.up said lhat with the kind of growth  being experienced by the town, it is appropriate for council lo consider additional controls. "The primary reason is for lire safely  and prevention." Limiting air pollution is  also a growing concern of residents, he said.  Legg recommended that the town make a  start by banning burning of construction  waste, prohibiting open fires for garden  waste or restricting times when such Tires  can occur, and empowering the fire depar-  ment lo charge for ils services where a permit was not obtained or where a neglected  fire was allowed to burn out of control.  A number of other options have been suggested, including better enforcement of the  existing bylaw and placing further restrictions or prohibiting burning of land clearing  waste.  Another step recommended would  involve asking the SCRD to co-ordinate discussions toward a solution for disposing of  land clearing waste from urban areas.  Mayor Hric Small sugggesied lhat may be  the first step lhat has to be taken before any  further restrictions should be imposed. He  pointed oul that the SCRD landfill is committed to a 30 per cent reduction in waste  volumes by 1995. and that sending construction waste there would make that goal harder  lo attain.  There is currently no alternative site for  bunting or burying such wastes; Small suggested a private contractor could be encouraged to establish a regional sile in an appropriate location.  The recommendations were received by  Ihe committee-of-the-whole and referred for  a decision lo tommorrow's council's meeting.  Suspended sentence for spousal assault,  judge orders probation, community service  A Pender Harbour man who  threw a dinner plate at his common law wife, causing a gash  on her jaw requiring 2.3 stitches,  was given a suspended sentence  in provincial court Tuesday and  ordered to perform 60 hours of  community work service.  Jeffrey llallberg, 39, pleaded  guilty lo assault causing bodily  harm Tuesday after an incident  April 5 when he threw a dinner  plate which hit his wife in the  jaw.  The woman was later treated  al the Pender Harbour medical  clinic.  Following his arrest the next  morning, llallberg reportedly  told police, "I was a jerk last  nighl. I feel a lot of remorse...I  should have thrown the food at  her but not the plate."  According to Crown counsel  Tony Rowley, ihere has been a  history of violence in the relationship, including one incident  where llallberg kicked the victim in the jaw and another  where he kicked her in the face,  causing her to miss two weeks  of work.  Police have been called in Ihe.  past to incidents between the  couple, said'Rowley, but there  have been no previous charges;  On Ihe night of the assault  April 5. both llallberg and the  victim had been drinking, said  defence counsel Lome Paton,  and had been under financial  pressure.  Also, said Paton, a comment  by the victim implying that  llallberg was financially  freeloading off her meant the  incident was "not without  provocation."  Since the assault, the couple  have reconciled and the relation-  sechelt council notes  ship is "somewhat back on  track," said Paton. llallberg has  also been attending counselling  for bolh anger management and  his alcohol problems.  In handing down her sentence. Judge Shirley Giroday  said she takes a serious view of  assaults, "especially assaults of  men against women with whom  Ihey have a trust relationship."  Giroday added, however, "in  view of the attitude of the victim, I'm not going to send you  to jail.  "Your victim seems to have  forgiven you," said Giroday.  "Whether she is wise in doing  that, only time will tell."  In addition to community  work service, llallberg was  placed on probation for one year  and ordered to attend counselling as required by a probation officer.  Maximum sentence for  assault causing bodily harm is  10 years in jail.  Alderman Peggy Wagner will chair a liaison  committee to relay to council any concerns of citizens on the operations of Construction Aggregates  and make recommendations to help council to  work wilh the company to resolve the issues.  Development application fees  Increased  Developers who apply for changes in Sechelt's  bylaws will be facing increased fees for the service.  A fee of $1,000 will be required for applications for Official Community Plan amendments,  zoning amendments, development permits, development variance permits and board of variance  permits. ,    .  The increase will reimburse the district for the  costs of processing, inspecting and advertising  related to the application.  Grants approved for sewer and roads  The Ministry of Municipal Affairs has  approved grants for half of the costs of sewer  upgrades in Sechelt. Nearly $900,000 will go for  phase one of an extended trunk main in West  Sechelt and collection systems in West Sechelt and  West Porpoise Bay.  Approximately $206,000 will finance work to  be done on portions of East Porpoise Bay Road.  Story telling festival  Sechelt has been asked to consider a grant of  $750 towards the cost of producing a Story Telling  Festival at Rockwood Centre.  Bronwyn Sutherland, one of the organizers of  the event, told aldermen the festival has the potential to become a popular annual event which would  attract a large number of visitors and performers.  ���  police beat  MAKE HIS PAY!

His imprisonment violates  Article 19 (the peaceful exercise  of the right to freedom of  expression) of the Universal  Declaration of Human Rights.  In talking about human rights  abuses which occur in industrialized nations, Hall referred to  the 1989 US Supreme Court  decision to allow the executions  of mentally handicapped persons and children aged 15. "The  State of Texas has executed four  people who committed their  crimes while under the age of  18."  Texas was condemned by Al  in February of this year for  allowing the execution of a  mentally ill juvenile. The execution was carried out despite  pleas for clemency from Pope  John Paul II and the religious  community in Texas.  Hall also outlined how the  US is violating the UN Charter  of Refugees by refusing asylum  for the refugees from Haiti.  In Canada, AI is monitoring  allegations of human rights violations in aboriginal communities and is working toward legislative changes regarding  Canadian arms shipments.  Hall's tranquil home is a  long way from the turmoil of  refugee camps across the globe.  "Human rights abuses are  appalling and getting worse.  There are millions of people in  refugee camps, not just economic refugees.  "They are refugees because  of human rights abuses in their  countries ��� Guatemalans who  are refugees in Mexico; Kurds  in Turkey; Armenians because  of Ihe upheaval in Azerbijan.  The list goes on and on. Millions of these people are victimized as refugees. We are trying  to reach these people.

Centra Gas Coast News, lune 15, 1992  opinion  i  Assessment laws  need major review  Changes to property lax assessment laws announced by  the NOP last week are a step toward a fairer system.  But the benefits do not flow directly from having  assessments done annually, rather than every two years as  is existing practice. That system has certainly caused  hardship in a volatile and soaring real estate market  where property owners have in recent years seen huge  jumps in assessed value. Some have had to pay dearly for  market forces beyond Iheir control, but higher assessments do not necessarily translate Into higher taxes.  Municipalities sel lax rales based on Ihe total assessed  value of property within Iheir boundaries and their budgetary needs. In general, when assessment! rise, Ihe mill  rales fall. Hut there has been no mechanism to differentiate between different types of properly, so lhal those  whose properly assessments rise more due to market  demand end up shouldering an ever increasing share of  Ihe tax burden.  Annual assessments alone would simply cul spread the  Increases oul; Ihe real benefit in Ihe legislation will flow  more from new powers allowing greater flexibility, and  giving local government the ability lo phase in hikes.  Bul there are other problems with Ihe overall assessment system that still need attention. Some rural communities have seen their land values soar because of standing trees, or forest, influencing market demand. The  value of merchantable limber, or cul logs, was added lo  the residential property assessment even though the property owner had no intention lo harvest Irees.  Lasqueti Islanders challenged the approach several  years ago arguing lhat the policy encouraged people to  log their land. They won several appeals, not because the  policy was deemed wrong, but because the assessment  authority did not at that time have the necessary market  evidence to support their arguments that the presence of  trees influenced prices in the way they reasoned in arriving at market value.  The whole process of property assessments and how  they affect taxes is a complicated business; one that causes undue hardship to some landowners and poses a threat  to the environment.  The changes announced last week modify a flawed  system and any improvements are welcome. For the long-  term, a major overhaul is needed.  Border skirmishes  There was mixed news on the East Coast last week as  well in the long-standing battle for fishing rights waged  between Newfoundland and the French islands of St.  Pierre and Miquelon.  An international tribunal granted Canadian fishermen  control over most of the seas off southern Newfoundland.  France got a corridor 10.5 nautical miles wide extending  200 miles south to the high seas.  The sad part is that Ihe decision appears to hold little  hope for a turnaround in the Newfoundland fishery, reeling from shortages of northern cod.  While Ottawa has its attention focused on overfishing  in Canadian waters by foreign fleets, it should turn its  efforts on resolving another long-standing border dispute  - the AB Line of Dixon Entrance. West Coast fishermen  have suffered needless harassment and extreme financial  hardship there in recent years as a consequence of gunboat antics and seizures by the US Coast Guard.  Discrimination  unwarranted  The recent kafuffle in Los  \ngeles, in which a segment of  ;he populace plagued by discrimination reacted violently to  the official use of excessive-  force, brings to mind a simitar  situation that exists, although on  a much smaller scale, here on  the Sunshine Coast.  As crime proliferates in our  developing community, ways to  counter-attack are understandably sought after. Youths are  seen to be major contributors to  criminal activity and, like (he  blacks of LA, therefore become  conspicuous in the eyes of the  law.  Some of our local police officers however, are not content to  harbour their prejudices privately, and appear to feel that youth,  as opposed to individual youths,  must be suppressed in order to  lower the crime rate. These  unprofessional officers abuse  their entrusted power and use  their prejudice to justify the  harassment of the innocent.  This sullies the overall relationship between youth and the  authorities thus creating hostilities that logically increase,  rather than discourage, criminal  activity.  As a high-school student  with a spotless criminal record  and fairly high grades, I personally resented the abuse I  received for merely being below  19 in age and 'out' past the time  of the Coast's 'unofficial curfew.' I have, in fact, chosen to  withhold my name to prevent  any further unwarranted 'car  inspections.'  The situation I have  addressed isn't strictly a problem for youths; it should present  itself as a problem for anyone  who considers themselves concerned-about the violation of  civil rights. Are youth to be  treated as a group, rather than as  individuals, and be subject to  curfews and discriminatory  monitoring, as the local authorities have proposed? There is no  excuse for discrimination,  whether it be based on race, religion, gender, or age.  NAME WITHHELD BY  REQUEST  Stop the abuse  and violence  I have been reading many of  Judge Giroday's court decisions,  some dealing with break and  enters, others dealing with rape  and family abuse. Jane Seyd's  three part series on family violence has also caught my atten  tion. The messages are mixed,  leaving me puzzled.  A 16-year-old boy, drunk, is  found guilty of break and entry,  theft and vandalism, get's IS  months probation, counselling  and a wilderness/treatment program.  Robert Life, charged with  sexually assaulting a boy, gets  18 months probation and counselling.  A 16-year-old girl caused  $66 damage to a wall in Sunny  Market gets 12 months probation and 30 hours community  work.  A 59-year-old man sexually  abuses his 12 year old granddaughter, gets 18 months probation and counselling.  It does not add up to me, it  just doesn't make sense.  I understand how very  important it is to have the violent abuse acts owned responsibility by the one abusing. I  agree there ought to be some  more significant consequences  and that the sentences brought  down by Judge Giroday are  letters welcome  We welcome letters to the editor on matters of public  interest.

So  should society though. Look at  the examples we by our acceptances say are okay.  Terminator II, Lethal  Weapons, Miami Vice, Dallas,  The Young and The Restless.  All the magazines, all the violence in sports. Look at the  images we sell to people in TV  movies. So what is okay anyway?  If we really want the violence  to *nd, if we truly want to put a  slop to sexual abuse, perhaps we  should all protest a little louder  about the violent, abusive examples media images show us.  Violence is not okay. Call the  TV network, and let your theatre manager know. Call your  MLA. It is time for action. Society has created collectively  these violent conditions. Society  will have to act collectively lo  stop it. Increased knowledge  and awareness will help.

DON ROSE  The Perrot phenomenon may have a profound effect  Whatever else Mr. Ross Perrot of Texas  achieves this year, there can be no doubting now  that what he has already achieved has shaken up  die political establishment in Washington enough  that lasting changes in the American political system are likely to remain.  When you think about ii, (he constitution of the  United States has been an admirable document. In  a remarkably short time, nearly two hundred and  twenty years ago a group of country gentleman and  farmers and Yankee traders in the original thirteen  colonies met. discussed and hammered oul a workable document.  Viewed from a Canadian perspective in the year  of 1992. it musl be viewed as nothing short of a  miracle. As we puner ineptly about in rancorous  and consuming ineffectuality trying to shape a  constitution we can live under, we must marvel at  what seems to be nothing short of a miracle in its  clarity and in the despatch with which it was  brought into being.  And yet, and yet, without a constitution to  squabble over, indeed with an admirable document  which binds them passionately together, Americans like their northern neighbours are profoundly  unhappy with their political system and their political leaders.  With wisdom and prescience the sharpers of the  American constitution built in a system of legislative/administrative checks and balances in a valiant  musings  john burnside  anempt to control the abuses of power. For a dozen  years and more the Democrats have controlled the  legislalure and the Republicans, the administration  and the government of the country has been  checked and balanced into querulous impotence  and political exchanges have degenerated into finger pointing and acrimonious accusation.  Not since I've been a fascinated spectator of the  American political scene has the relationship  between Congress and the President been so  nakedly and mutually hostile.  Certainly the causes of this hostility lie in the  profound political disagreements of the Reagan-  Bush years of administration. But there have often  been such political schisms in the past, indeed it is  part of the system.  More than the political disagreements, the relationship between the politicians has been acerbated  by direct and scathing attacks on Congress by  Reagan and now Bush as the presidents seek to  discredit the Democratic majority in both the  House of Representatives and in the Senate.  There seems almost to be the conviction in the  top levels of tbe Republican party that it is un-  American to disagree with the President so that  instead of reaching workable compromises Reagan  and Bush seem inclined to issue to decrees to  Congress and react with anger when Congress  refuses to become a rubber stamp for presidential  flat  Mind you, all has not been virtue in the legislative branches. As is the case in Canada, the cynicism of the electorate deepens at the self serving  corruption perceived in the seats of elected power.  In the congressional bank a petty tale of bouncing cheques and overdrawn balances has served as  i graphic illustration of the larger abuses and privileges that American politicians now seem to have  to come to consider to be their due.  Meanwhile the American people have plunged  from the giddy exuberance of the post-Gulf War  American into an alarmed awareness that things  are deteriorating in their economy and life becoming harsher for most of their citizens.  Against this backdrop of growing difficulty, tbe  spectacle of the leaders of tbe country locked in  what seems inescapable partisan paralysis is infuriating the American people.  And onto tbe scene strides the heretofore  obscure Texan about whom not much in depth is  known but who takes a message of a return to candour and high principled American activism directly to the people. His path to power seems as  unconventional as his political background.  What seemed unthinkable just six months ago  now seems lo be a very real possibility. Where the  Perrot path will lead them no American seems to  be very sure. That it is preferable to the pathless  present seems lo be enough.  There will no doubt be a reflection of American  events in tbe political life of this country. No doubt  there is a body of concerned Canadians who,  watching the manifestation of an apparent saviour  for the body politic south of the border in the person of Ross Perrot, will be even as we speak scanning Canadian horizons for a fresh and unsullied  superman to leads us out of the chronic confusion  of our governments. He is unlikely to appear.  And a cautionary memory of the facl that such  as Mussolini and Adolf Hitler were able to come to  power because they promised a sense of direction  and purpose to people weary of political wrangling  and stalemate cannot be entirely and comfortably  dismissed.  On the other hand, a non-partisan president  might be an interesting innovation to the American  way. Perrot has enlivened a depressing political  year and opened a range of fascinating possibilities.  COAST^NEWS  TH�� Saran Cue Naaa. ��� IxaaV tarn aM  taa SaMm Can.

Or progress if it  really is progress. Progress is ihe pulse of life, at least in our times.  Onward and upward. Per ardua ad astra. Excelcir! Or at least let's  have a better car, wiih air bags even on the right side, and a little  metallic voice lhat tells you when the door is shut.  Progress, the great surge or possibly religion of progress, has been  taking a hold on us for some hundreds of years now, and I wouldn't  want to say, and of course, realize thai il would be fruitless lo say, it  nay. However ii can be pointed oul, with the utmost caution, that it  was not ever thus; and there are of course, large parts of Ihe world  today, with delegates al the Uniled Nations, where the idea of  progress is definitely frowned upon.  What is sought by them is an established way of life and an established way of life can give the people certainly and a sense of continuity down through the ages. Solid and perhaps necessary values, but  we believe lhat if you have to give up progress il is costing too much.  However it is possible, on occasion, to gel a bit pissed off with  progress. An immediate case in point has to do with typewriter ribbons.  A main thing about typewriter ribbons is that they wear out, and as  Ihey wear oul the type on the page begins to fade. This il does, as far  as ihe user is concerned, quite imperceptibly. The type can get down  almost to the vanishing point and he, typing away, still sees everything he writes clear as a bell.  It is only when he takes his copy in to some editor and Ihe editor  immediately reaches for his glasses and gets up and takes his pages to  a window...01 when the typesetter gives him a merry laugh and says I  hope I got this right, did you mean groin or did you mean grain, that  be realizes lhat he does really need a new ribbon.  And here these days is where he, a lifetime progressive, can come  up in an exasperating way with progress.  I le has been aware of course, for some years, that the computer has  come. Tots in school are using ihem and most of his writing friends  are using ihem.  He has preferred, strictly on a personal basis, to cany on on his  old Corona, a veteran of the 30s, but a friend. He knows he is not  alone in ihis quirk or quiddity.  A little time ago, it must have been shortly before he died, Hugh  McClennan, author of some of our better novels, phoned Peter  Gzowski from Halifax, obviously in some kind of extremis, and said  thai his old Underwood had finally given out. It was all he could write  on he said and he couldn't find another. Would Gzowski put out a  plea on his show. Gzowski did and McLennan phoned back in three  or four days. He had had the offer of twelve, all 30s models, all said  letters  in a nutshell  s. nutter  to be in good shape and all in Halifax.  But the ribbons, the ribbons. Whal is happening here, vis-a-vis the  computer sweep, which is to say progress, is that Ihe manufacturers,  large accountant run concerns, are slacking off, or even stopping the  manufacture of ribbons. Ribbons in short are gelling hard to get.  ll is a small thing perhaps but it points il seems lo me to a strong  and growing aspect of progress in our time. Progress you would think,  real progress, would give people ever more and wider choices oj what  they ".unt (o do and how they want lo do it. On the contrary it may be  that our choices are getting narrower and may be narrower still every  year.  To be fair I would have lo say, as an old, or ancient typewriter  user, lhal the typewriter itself, even me old Corona, was a landmark  of progress. Think of the way Ihey used to have to do it. Balzac for  example wrote the whole of the Comedic Humane wilh a scratchy  quill which he had to keep trying lo whittle, to the lighl of stubs 'of  candles, which he often had to roam about and swipe from here and  there.  When ihe firsl machines came long there were standouts who  wanted to carry on with the quill and many of them. Years later, when  my old Corona was on the market, there were still many who wanled  to write in pencil or red ink or whatever, and in quite recent times  there were people, Thomas Wolf for example, who insisted on writing  his hundreds of thousands of words standing up in longhand.  The computer of course, is different. At the touch of a key you can  be in touch with the libraries of the world. A lot of faith is being put  into this, but I very much doubt if being in instant touch with the thesaurus is going to help anyone write like E.M. Forster and I think it  will in fact do more to detract.  We're still going to need typewriter ribbons chaps, it can't be too  difficult to make a typewriter ribbon. Why not a small company here  to supply a dwindling market? I throw the idea out freely. All I'd  want is a lifetime's supply.  $500,  coupon  off any Hair Service, Electrolysis  or Tanning Package '  A  EiokyDMa:  July 31*14  Quality Consignment Clothing  Now Available  SSding unisex  HAIR DESIGN g$  T^NNINC.

It is a sign of professionalism  - self-confidence, personal competence or whatever you want lo  call it that makes the more intelligent women and men pay  attention to how they look, how  Ihey present themselves and  generally how they appear lo  others. To suggest that paying  attention to one's appearance  "lakes time, energy and money  that could be better spent in  other places" is to suggest a  loser mentality more suited to  turning out militant feminists  than winners in the game of life.  Even if you disagree with the  goals and priorities of those  behind the Gibsons Ambassador  pageant, why can't you live and  lei live? If we looked closely at  the Coast News, would we find  only serious dedication to solving Ihe world's problems, like  you expect of ihem? I doubt it.  For instance, how could you  publish a 'Dining Guide' when  half the world doesn't have  enough to eat? Or a 'Leisure'  section when the oppressed of  the world have no leisure? For  that matter, how could you even  publish a newspaper when old-  growth forests are being wasted  into trash consumer newsprint?  How callous! How thoughtless!  How insensitive! How politically incorrect!  Do us a favour. Take your  own muddled logic to heart  and... Save a Tree - Cancel the  Coast News.

Boys don't  look so good in evening gowns  and bikinis, is why.

Johnstone received first prize  for a feature photo appearing in  a newspaper with a circulation  between 4,000 and 12,499 for  his photograph of a child blowing a soap bubble over a background of the Earth from  space, published in conjunction  with last year's Earth Day celebrations.  But the path to the award-  winning photo had much to do  with luck and timing.  In fact, Johnstone had been  looking to borrow an iron at the  Driftwood Inn, to take the fold  marks out of the regional district's Earth Day flag, when a  boy blowing bubbles walked by  with his grandfather.  The resulting photograph  was a spontaneous idea helped  along with the patient coaching  of the child's grandfather and  light made possible by hanging  the flag in the motel room window.  In some ways the photo was  a challenge, says Johnstone:  first, the boy blowing bubbles  was very young, with a limited  attention span.  Also, the picture had to be  exposed indoors without a flash  to get the black background of  the flag.  In total, the photograph took  only about 20 minutes from  ironing the flag to the last of  about 30 shots of the boy blowing bubbles.  It was hectic, says Johnstone, "but sometimes the best  photos come out of hectic situations.,and winging it."  Coast News editor Charles  Hart also picked up honours at  the 1991 national newspaper  awards when the Parksville  Arrowsmith Star placed third  overall in its category of weekly  broadsheets with a circulation  of 12,500 to 20,000 and second  overall in that category for best  editorial page.  Hart was senior reporter and  features editor at the Star for  four years before moving to the  Coast News January I.  Mw*tW* *-*���"���  S\a\<*��...

Situated at Veterans and Fitchelt Roads in Gibsons, the spacious home provides a quiet setting  for those who look for a two or three day retreat.  Travellers passing through our Sunshine Coasl find  a welcome loo, for an overnight stop.  Lots of space outdoors along with a pool add to  the amenities. There is a games room and a separate cottage.  Named Swn-y-mor (soon a mor), the lilting  sound of that name, Welsh as you may guess, does  fit the restful ambience of the house and grounds.  Proprietors Barbara and Fred say they do enjoy  meeting folk. "We've had guests from other countries as well as BC and West Coast states; from  Calais in France, Beijing, Indonesia, Germany,  Australia and New Zealand. Cards of appreciation  from so many of them."  "At Christmas," said Fred, "besides family we  had guests from New Zealand - a return visit."  And breakfasts? "Fred is the cook," said Barbara, "and he prepares the eggs fresh from our own  small flock. Muffins, homebaked bread and my  preserves."

It's called  Ginglco Biloba. it's a tree worshipped for its longevity in  the Orient because some of these trees live to be 1000  years old. It is the leaves that are used and now  promoted for their therapeutic benefits.  In Europe the top selling prescription drug is derived  from an extract of the Gingko leaf. It is used in elderly  patients to treat symptoms of tinnitus (ringing in the  ears), short term memory loss, lack of attention,  depression, and poor concentration, ll seems that this  remarkable plant works on the circulatory system by  increasing the How of blood.

Bill Vorley; vice-president, Ken Moore; board members Frank  Apel, Franz Erber, Mildred Chuckrey, Olive Oomyn, Pat Webster,  Fred Church, Francis Konpasek, Al Buckley, Grace Lamonl, Marion  Terrillon and Ruth Paterson.  Missing from the slate of officers were a treasurer and a secretary.  It is hoped thai volunteers will soon fill these vacancies.  Al and Marg Buckley, both of whom have given years of volunteer hours, were presented with Life Memberships in appreciation of  their hard work.  Well Known Resident Passes  Friends of ihe Pallanl family of llalfnioon Bay were saddened lo  learn of the sudden death of Bill Pallanl. Bill and his wife Fvelyn  have lived in Halfmoon Bay for ihe pasl 23 years, following his  retirement from Carting Brewery. Bill was an ardent bridge player  and was well known for his own particular sense of humour, for  which he will be remembered by all who knew him. He is survived  by his wife Fvelyn, one son and one daughter, two grandchildren and  one great-granddaughter. Our sympathies go oul to Ihe family al Ihis  time.  Card Tables Anyone?  The Welcome Beach Community Association's bridge days arc  now very popular, so Ihere is a shortage of card tables. If you happen  to have a spare one in your attic and would care to donate it to the  hall, the gesture would be much appreciated. Give either Barbara at  885-9860 or Mildred at 885-5249 a call if you have such an item.

Ensuring equal access  requires more than just removing physical barriers: it also  means changing attitudes and  support systems so that people  with visible as well as invisible  disabilities (such as learning,  intellectual, psychiatric, chronic migraine, panic disorders  and uncontrolled epilepsy) can  participate fully in all aspects  of community life.  Access Is a right  Your participation is important. People can make a difference. There are five focus areas  we need to work on where  changes are needed.  Transportation - our mayor  in Sechelt knows of the importance of buses, however, other  areas of transportation, such as  taxis, need attention.  Please understand, I'm not  urging a crusade against our  cab companies.  A para or quad might want  transportation at night or the  weekend and I know of no  available service during those  times.  Housing  We have some barrier-free  design homes and buildings.  We urge every builder lo incorporate this design into every  structure being built on the  lower Sunshine Coast. Group  homes are needed for people to  live independently and make  new friends. Having a disability often means isolation and  loneliness.  Recreation  If you lead a youth group,  such as Cubs or Brownies,  include young people with disabilities.  Encourage teachers to talk  about disability issues in their  classes. Sludenis are generally  warm-hearted and accepting.  "Discover Together" is an education kit made available by Ihe  Department of the Secretary of  State that uses awareness activities to help children understand disability.  Over '80s Tea  The tea is being held Tuesday, June 16 at 1:30 pm. Put on  your best "Bib and Tucker" and  we'll see you there.  Craft Show  Elizabeth Derby will collect  the baked goods for the craft  show on June 27 at the Seniors  Hall on Mermaid Street. For  more information call Kay at  885-3334.  COMING  SO   N!

Vernon is well known on the  Coast as founder and artistic  director of the Sunshine Coast  Music Society.  The society was formed in  1989 to produce and promote  quality music on the Sunshine  Coast. The society is renowned  for its annual spring productions, most notably Gilbert and  Sullivan's Pirates of Penzance  in 1990 and last year's Cafe  Broadway.  Vernon musicals on the  Coast began in 1980 with the  Coastal Soundwaves chorus and  orchestra. Their productions of  Jesus Christ Superstar and Fiddler on the Roof are legendary  in the Coast's arts history.  As musical director, Vernon's task is to develop all the  music in the show. The Soundwaves Orchestra has been  rehearsing for months with  some new young members supplementing many of the continuing fine players from past  years. The singers have many  on the arts beet  challenging numbers, and all are  under the coaching of Vernon,  including the adult and children's choruses.  One of the challenges of  musical theatre is the combining  of the needs of the musical  director and conductor with the  needs of the stage director and  choreographer.  Vernon's success with negotiating these needs into a cohesive production has been well  demonstrated, and is her current  task with Anne.  In addition to Ihe hundreds of  hours of work for Anne of  Green Gables, Vernon has been  on the stage herself this spring  with her acclaimed April concert for the Sunshine Coast Arts  Council, as well as concerts in  Kamloops and Vancouver.  Those who enjoy opera and  Vernon's talents, will have  another opportunity as she sings  with Edo Boersma's Concert  Opera benefit at the Playhouse  Theatre in Vancouver June 21.  Anne of Green Gables production is in full swing in preparation for the July 3 to 12 run at  the Festival Pavilion in Sechelt.  Tickets are on sale now at 885-  9631.  Celestial Visions by Lionel Thomas is an exhibition of original  prints from his series inspired by constellations of the heavens. Each  image was printed by the artist on a high pressure press from a carefully prepared copper plate. The lines in the images are etched by  acid or engraved by hand wilh a diamond point.  Both of these techniques of 'drypoint' or 'etching' are known as  intaglio. In several of Thomas' prints, plates that are shaped jigsawlike are printed in groups to create more complex images.  'Vulpecula', 'Sagitta and the Arrow of Time', and four others are  done in this manner. The style of Lionel Thomas' work is lively and  playful, with a sense of the energetic constancy of the cosmos and of  the artists himself.  Thomas has pledged a percentage of sales to the Arts Centre's  building expansion fund. In addition lo Ihe work shown during the  exhibition, he will be in the gallery on Saturday afternoons from I  pm to 4 pm with portfolios of his unframed work. Half of the proceeds from these unframed works will go to the building fund.  Celestial Visions continues until June 28.

Something seems wrong wilh the wheels.  We pull off and And them jammed with compacted  snow from Ihe blizzard, already fuming lo ice. I  clean them off as well as I can and we continue.  After a few More miles, we reach the storied  Peace River, first transmontane route of the long-  ago fur traders, ll lies tranquilly in a great natural  basin, bounded by oddly-patterned piebald cliffs on  the far side. Mackenzie and Fraser canoed thai  broad stream as did all the traders and voyageurs  who followed in their wake. We can almost see Ihe  laden boats of the fur brigades, heading downstream to Lake Athabaska and beyond, dwarfed by  these imposing vistas.  We wind downhill to the bridge and cross Ihe  great river. There is an oil-refining community  named Taylor sprawled along the opposite bank.  Fort St. John itself lies several more miles north, a  good distance from the site of the original trading  post. We reach its outer limits before long. A piercingly cold wind is blowing when I get out to phone  the people we have arranged to stay wilh, bul there  is no snow in evidence at all.  Our northern hosts-to-be are college instructors,  Waldo and Ann Dahl, old friends of mine from the  early 1970s. They lived on the Sunshine Coast  then, but later moved to Grand Forks, bought a  large mountaintop farm and ran a free school for  many years.  Eventually, when their four kids were grown,  they decided to  adventure north       and embark on  fresh careers. Both  Waldo and Ann  now teach at  Northern Lights  College. While  they have noi permanently abandoned the south,  their present focus  s on the Peace  River Country.  They have grown  to like Fort St.  John   and  have  bought investment    ���*******"���**"���******������*"���������~"  property there.  After several  attempts, I Anally make contact with Ann. They  hadn't been expecting us till later tonight or tomorrow. She drives out to meet us and guide us to their  home, a cozy duplex on the other side of town.  (The coziness is more than welcome, That bone-  chilling wind is still blowing vigorously.)  Ann picks up Waldo, who has a lale class at the  College and we go for supper at a Chinese restaurant. Back at Ihe duplex. Waldo cracks some of his  excellent homemade wine. Yvonne and Ann retire  shortly but he and I sit up for several convivial  hours rehashing old times. Waldo and Ann are one  of the nicest couples I know. It's great to share  their hospitality after the long journey.  I rise early the next day to find our hosts already  up and diligently marking papers. Exam time is just  around the corner. Both of them have classes that  morning but will return at noon and take us for  lunch with Shirley Bradley, the creative-writing  instructor who has arranged this evening's reading.  I sort through some poems in preparation for the  gig. In due course, Waldo and Ann pick us up. As  we drive to our lunch date, I get my first good perspective on the town.  Fort St. John has an odd, unfinished look. It  sprawls over flat, gully-riven country, several miles  north of the Peace River, occupying an area that  could easily accommodate a much-larger city. It  would obviously like to be a much larger city but a  boom-and-bust economy, based on oil, natural gas  and farming, has left extensive tracts of land within  the town limits, surveyed but undeveloped. The  population has fluctuated wildly over the years.  Fortunes have been made and lost here. It is a  patchwork place waiting for its destiny to catch up  with it again; waiting for the developers to return,  construct entire new neighbourhoods and fill in the  gaps that over-optimism has left.

A total of ���I.i' salmon were  weighed in, competing for the  many prizes that were donated  by our various businesses and  bought by the derby committee.  This year the ladies were asked  lo weigh in their salmon and  dogfish for sure; and only those  bottom feeder fish (cod, flounders, etc.) lhal were more than  12 inches long, lo preserve our  feeder slock.  The land events were held at  (Iibsons Legion and Friday  night's social evening was a  greal success, the ladies renewing acquaintances and meeting  new friends.  After fishing from 4:30 am  for some, Saturday night all  returned to the legion for the  banquet, dcliciously provided  by Greg Pelula. Entertainment  lhal evening by Ed Hill, our  master of ceremonies, kept  everyone awake and lively and  his auction of mystery gifts sent  over by the Surrey girls who  couldn't attend was fun and a  welcome additional bonus to  our account for donating to the  community.  Additional enterlainment by  three of the ladies' groups was  pendergolf  enjoyed and the judges from the  boal Tontine awarded the two  girls from the Sea Hags', Moira  Clement and Denise Strom, lop  marks and the prize (nice shoes  Moira!).

In many cases, there's still an  underlying assumption on the  part of the courts and the general public that if a woman is willing to go back to her husband,  she must be pretty stupid. Either  that, or the assaults can't really  be that bad.  But the dynamics of family  violence ate rarely that simple.  "The reasons they stay go a lot  deeper than that," says Rita  Pelrescu, program co-ordinator  for victim witness services, a  non-profit organization which  works with the RCMP.  Often the victims of family  violence are financially dependent on their husbands, and may  also want to hold the relationship together for the sake of  their children, or because they  feel a responsibility to "work"  on improving the marriage.  Unfortunately, as the BC  Task Force on Family Violence  states, "The pervasiveness of  family and sexual violence is  supported by deeply rooted  social attitudes and values. Traditionally, a husband   has   been  regarded as  the      ____  "head" of the family, with power over  his wife and children, a role which  has been historically supported by  both religious and  legal institutions.  "This tradition  is integral to the  way our society is  organized..." states  the report on family violence. "It lies  behind the reluctance of institutions to intervene in private  family matters, because it is a  man's 'right' to control his family."  Lack of affordable housing,  and available jobs or other  financial help for women and  children on the Coast are also a  deterrent to leaving, says Pelrescu.  "Sometimes the alternatives  are scarier than what they're living with," she says. "What are  the opportunities here for  women? It's pretty slim."  Leaving abusive relationships is also more difficult for  some women because of particular cultural pressures  are statistically much more likely to be victims of assault than  non-natives.  But according to Dell Paul,  family support worker for the  Sechelt Indian Band, the close  knit family relationships which  offer support in native communities can also make it much  harder for women to come forward about abusive relation-  'Sometimes tbe  alternatives are  scarier than what  they're living with'  Legacies like the residential  school system have also made it  more difficult to identify abuse  in the first place, says Paul, both  for victims and abusers.  In such settings, even small  transgressions of the "rules"  would result in "brutal and  physical punishment that  became accepted and normalized," says Paul. "It wasn't normal, but that's what they were  led to believe."  In cases where a man is serious about wanting to change his  behaviour, both the victim assistance program and court system  work with the whole family,  says Petrescu.  To this end, counselling is  often part of the abuser's sentence. But on the Coast, even  that can present problems.  For the most part, affordable  counselling services are still  really   lacking,  says Petrescu.  __^_ While support  groups can be a  help, she says,  most abusers and  victims really  need some type  of private therapy-  "We've got  lots of private  therapists and  counsellors," says  Petrescu, "but  how many people  can afford them?  That's a real concern locally."  Lack of funding also means  that' anger management programs for abusers are likely to  be run inconsistently, and for  relatively limited periods of  time, says Petrescu.  Often courses will run for  eight to ten weeks then stop, she  says, with no guarantees about  when they will start up again.  This kind of situation makes  the effectiveness of such programs limited, since often long-  term programs are needed lo  make a real difference to  behaviour.  Cycles of family violence  need long-term solutions, says  Petrescu, involving money for  For instance, native women     needed services, improvements  Travel InfoCentre seeks  summer volunteers  In response to numerous  requests from tourism operators  and retail businesses, the  Sechelt Chamber of Commerce  is trying to form a volunteer  committee to allow the Travel  InfoCentre to operate seven  days a week from September to  June, in addition to the usual  July and August coverage.  The chamber says visitor  inquiries al the InfoCentre doubled in the last year, and lhat it  is no longer enough lo offer  weekend visitor services during  July and August only.  At present, contract terms for  the Business Information Centre  require staff to be available  from Monday lo Friday. It is  impossible to close the centre at  these times.  The Chamber notes there is  no funding available to hire paid  staff for weekend coverage,  which leaves trained volunteers  as the only option.  A two-day travel counsellors  training course will be provided  by the Chamber in early July,  followed by the Superhost  courses when available. These  courses are requirements of the  Ministry of Tourism for all volunteers in a travel infocentre.  Volunteers who like people,  and who are interested in  tourism, should call the Chamber office at 885-3100 if they  would like to participate.  is, B.C.     ^1  NORTH OAKS  767 North Rd., Gibsons,:  26 Adult Oriented  Single Level Townhomes  1 & 2 Bedroom Units  from  $91,900 - $101,900  TWIN OAKS DEVELOPMENT CORP.  886-4680  VtHrUMW  AUTOMOTIVE  APRIL 1992 "BEST SELLERS" AWARD  BETH PATE & LINDSAY BEYNON  NS-^  (.IIISONS Kl  in general conditions for  women, public awareness, education, and a willingness on the  part of Ihe courts lo take the  issues seriously.  And the sooner these needs  are recognized, the less likely it  is that abusive behaviours will  be passed to another generation.  Michelle Peterson photo  According to report on family  violence, "boys who witness  severe violence are ten times  more likely to engage in violence against wives as adults  than boys who do not."  Says Petrescu, "It's important to tell kids who are living in  these situations that this is not  normal."

Dill Hunsche told the hearing  that putting the bylaw through  before the lakes study Implications were discussed was Ihe  "Incorrect order" because "the  land area that's going lo be  affected by this lakes study is  considerable."  Resident! said Ihey were  pleased lhal a Rural Watershed  Protection /one had been  included in the bylaw, bul were  upset lhat il had only been  applied lo one of ihe reservoir  hikes (Garden Hay Lake) in the  area.  Throughout the hearing, residents also repealed iheir  requesls for an Official Community flan for Area A which  would address more general  concerns about the growth of  the community,  "I keep hearing a general  tone of amending Ihe bylaw  alter it's in place," said Ron  Malcolm.  Although the bylaw has been  adjusted to deal with the concerns of individual property  owners, it has not addressed the  larger philosophical concerns of  residents about the direction  Pender Harbour is taking, said  Malcolm.  But McGillivray said waiting  for a community plan would be  impractical. "The Official Community Plan process is probably  going lo take close to five  years," said McGillivray. He  added jusl as many people were  likely to be unhappy about the  results of a Community Plan as  they are about the land use  bylaw, and that delaying Bylaw  337 would make il harder lo get  community plan funding.  Those concerns were also  expressed by several resident!  who supponed the land use  bylaw.  Marge Campbell said Ihe  bylaw is necessary so lhal  neighbouring properly owners  have some restrictions on devel  opmeni And several people said  they had already wailed lung  enough for Ihe bylaw  "Al the rate we're going,  we're not going to gel any  where." said Karen Adams.  Residents also let Ihe region  al board know Ihey weren't  happy about Ihe absence of Area  A director Gordon Wilson,  although Wilson's alternate, Cy  O'laMiy, was al Ihe hearing.  "I cannot believe that director Wilson isn't here," said  Hunsche. "He's the one who's  brought Ihe bylaw ihis far."  Hunsche's comments were  echoed hy several other residents, including Howard White  who said il was "inexcusable  lhat director Wilson isn't here al  ihis final meeiing io answer his  commitments."  McGillivray he couldn't  comment on the issue. "I can't  say anything aboul Wilson," he  said "He's not here."  Bylaw 337 now returns to the  regional board lo be considered  for third reading.
