 I  Legislative Library  Parliament Buildings  Victoria, B.C. V8V 1X4  89ig  gas pipeline by 1990  by Harold Blaine  Construction of the Sunshine  Coast to Vancouver Island  natural gas pipeline will start in  1989 and finish by September 1  in 1990, customers will start  connecting up that year and all  available customers on the Sunshine Coast including Gibsons,  should be getting the fuel by  19%.  The engineer who has been  working on the pipeline plan for  20 years, described the above  program in an interview with  this newspaper last week after  appearing before the Gibsons  town planning committee  November 8.  Jack   Kavanagh,   vice-pres  ident of engineering and construction for Westcoast Energy  Inc., said 600 workers will build  the pipeline. The greatest length  of pipeline dragged into the offshore waters and buried 100 feet  down will be 11 miles long.  The Saskatchewan native  who has been with the company  23 years, said he is elated and  happy to see the pipeline going  ahead.  "We don't give up easy," he  said.  Pacific Coast Energy Corporation has its proposal now  accepted by the British Columbia government to provide  natural gas to Vancouver Island  and environs. Now all that must  happen   before   construction  starts is a public hearing for a  certificate of public convenience  and necessity.  "Then we'll get right to work  to build that system," said  engineer Kavanagh.  Pacific Coast Energy Corporation, the pipeline builder, is  a firm equally co-sponsored by  Chieftain Development Co.  Ltd. of Alberta and Westcoast  Energy Inc. of Vancouver,  formerly West Coast Transmission Co. Ltd., a 35 to 40 year  B.C. firm.  Pipeline builder and owner  Pacific Coast Energy won't  distribute the natural gas to the  local customers. That will be  done by other firms which get  the franchise.  Hopefully there will only be  one distributor for the mainland  and one for the island because  that is financially better for the  rates, said Kavanagh. The  choice of distributors will depend on the local communities,  the approval of the provincial  government and of the B.C.  Public Utilities Commission.  Various potential distributors  are calling on the various local  municipalities now. Each municipal deal carries with it a  franchise.  "I hope it won't take terribly  long," said the engineer.  The $230 million pipeline will  be built of 10-inch high pressure  pipe that operates at 2,160  pounds  per  square  inch  by  gauge. On the mainland and for  the Texada Island crossing to  Vancouver Island, there will be  205 kilometers of 103/a inch  pipe, 1.8 kilometers of 20-inch  pipe and 88.2 kilometers of  underwater crossing pipe.  On Vancouver Island there  will be 70 kilometers of 4 Vi inch  pipe and 212 kilometers of lO'/i  inch. There will be one compressor station on the mainland  and 23 gas measurement stations throughout the system,  said Kavanagh.  Governments have provided  $175 million in construction  grants. The federal government  gave $150 million with $100  million of that non-repayable.  B.C.'s $25 million is repayable.  To help customers and to  help establish the system, the  province provides a $70 million  rate stabilization fund that is  repayable if used.  A further $55 million provincial conversion fund isn't  repayable. It's to be used to  assist industrial, commercial  and residential customers convert to natural gas.  Another $40 million that will  go to customers from the  distributors will be repayable at  interest over a period of years.  The bulk of the provincial conversion fund will go to large industrial customers like the pulp  mill at Port Mellon. That's  because their conversion costs  Please turn to page <���  The Sunshine  Published on the Sunshine Coast        25'per copy on news stands    November 14,1988    Volume 42   Issue 46  At various centres throughout the Sunshine Coast last Friday        Above, the fallen are saluted al a ceremony in Madeira Park.

Meredith delivered his judgment in  the Langdon vs. Burnside libel case. We carry the judgment  in ils entirety on Pages 23 and 24 of this week's paper.  We would point out that Ihe charge of conflict of interest  against Ihe former Sechelt alderman was found in the judgment to be justified.  A reference to her printed Iwo weeks after the original  editorial called for her resignation, a reference which was a  small portion of an 800 word essay on the standard of Canadian political morality���federal, provincial, and local���was  found by Mr. Justice Meredith lo be defamatory.  We will have no further comment on Ihe matter other lhan  to point out thai the bulk of Ihe reporting on this malter  recently has been done by a reporter whose disinterested objectivity in Ihe matler is at least debatable.  Lawyer David Sutherland quotes from a Supreme Court of  Canada ruling in his statement for the defence. An extract  from that quotation may be of interest:  "As I (Mr. Justice Estey) have indicated, qualification for  the election to and the holding of high office in all levels of  government are a matter of considerable importance in the  functioning of Ihe democratic community. The sanctity of  Ihese offices and the strict adherence to Ihe conditions of occupying those offices musl be safeguarded if democratic  government is to perform up to design."  Finally, Justice Meredith in his judgment notes thai Mayor  Koch of Sechell was aware of his alderman's conflict of interest 'but not sensitive lo it'.  If those who have aspired to and achieved political office  had been sensitive to the political improprieties taking place in  Iheir jurisdiction, it might not have been necessary for a community newspaper 'to continue to rail publicly against the  continued lobbying and obvious conflict' despite the threat of  a lawsuit, nor to reap Ihe expensive harvest of resentment for  so doing in Ihe public interest.  by Penny Fuller  Communication, environmental concerns and  development dominated the  discussion at the all-candidates  meeting held in Sechelt last  week. It was attended by approximately 65 people.  The meeting was hosted by  Bill McKinnon of the Sechelt  Chamber of Commerce. Dr.  Eric Paetkau acted as  moderator for the evening.  Contending for the mayor's  seat were incumbent Bud Koch  and St. Mary's Hospital administrator Tom Meredith. In  his opening statements  Meredith told the audience he  had decided to run for mayor  after a controversial meeting  about the Sechelt Indian Band's  gravel extraction project.  There he found that the information he was being given by  the municipal council was not  accurate. He emphasized the  need for communication between governing bodies.  "It seems to me," Meredith  said, "that one thing we must  strive for is communication and  getting along with the Sunshine  Coast Regional District and the  Sechelt Indian Government  District."  He also maintained there has  been too much political interference in the running of the  municipal district and that tax  money could be used to better  advantage of the residents of  Sechelt.  Mayor Bud Koch took a  softer approach, outlining his  history of political involvement  since arriving on the Sunshine  Coast in 1969. He pointed to his  accomplishments while on  council, with the total worth of  municipal district property climbing to $5 million, development  of parks in the area and the acquisition of Rockwood Lodge,  groundwork done for a golf  course and the potential activity  centre in downtown Sechelt.  Koch explained that in order  to develop the $ 1.2 million complex, it would cost the average  household approximately $65  per year over 10 years,  something that would need to  be brought to a referendum.  "We must be fiscally responsible," he said, "and keep expenses down. We currently enjoy the sixth lowest tax rate in  the province."  Vying for the three aldermanic seats are six people.  However, incumbent alderman  Len Herder was not present at  the debate. The other five candidates outlined their platforms  for the audience.  Bob Young came prepared  with a list of specific projects  which he promised to introduce  to council, should he be elected.  These included the development of the waterfront in Trail  Bay and Davis Bay, the preservation of Porpoise Bay for  residential development and the  development of leisure services  which would improve the quality of life for residents. He also  emphasized the need for communication and co-operation  between the district municipality and residents, as well as with  other governing bodies.  Joyce Kolibas talked about  her experience gained over the  years of sitting on council, at  one time as mayor of the Village  of Sechelt.  While she was initially resistant to development, she said,  she had learned that you can't  stop it. She expressed the hope  that whoever was elected, that  communication is improved.  Charles Pratt, a businessman  for 40 years, pointed to the  Sechelt Marsh as 'a good example of how not to run a city'.  He also slammed the lack of  planning and foresight of the  present administration. Pratt  said he had built two golf  courses.  He said the clearcut logging  of the land near the arena,  where council is considering  developing a golf course, was  poor planning. The plans  should have been drafted before  any logging was done, he said,  and the logging done to fit the  plans.  David Wells, who retired here  after 33 years at CBC, talked  about getting better bus service  for Sechelt, working harder for  a   late   ferry   sailing,   doing  whatever is possible for pollution control in the area and  establishing a teen drop-in centre.  Bob Graham was prompted  to run, he said, when he became  aware of the lack of technical  expertise on council. He said  this was leading to wrong decision making.  He cited the location of the  Public Works Vard as an example of poor planning due to lack  of expertise. The Aquarius dock  in Porpoise Bay, he added, was  an example of inadequate bylaw  enforcement.  Questions from the audience  centred around industrial  development in the Sechelt Inlet  acid rain, the proposed golf  course and council's receptivity  to public input.  All candidates indicated the  Sechelt Inlet should be preserved for residential development,  with no further industrial  development. Bob Young suggested future development  should be centred on Field Road  where the Community Plan has  provided for industrial zoning.  A member of the audience  asked what the candidates felt  about 'the scare tactics being used regarding acid rain'.  Bob Graham said any acid  rain on the Sunshine Coast  would have to come from Japan  or Alaska. He felt it was not an  issue.

"e  i  \  I  For better  libraries  A large majority of the residents of the Sunshine Coast  want better library services. At least $30,000 in additional  provincial funds would be available if library services were  extended throughout every part of the Sunshine Coast and  improved to an average British Columbia level.  If library services were improved to an optimum level,  then perhaps as much as an additional $75,000 or more  could come yearly from the provincial government. There  is a great opportunity to improve the Sunshine Coast's  quality of life through library service improvement.  It doesn't really matter how the Sunshine Coast's library  services are organized. The important thing to do is to  broaden Ihem and improve them.  Sunshine Coast residents enjoy their libraries. Travel  distances don't matter to ihem.  Even Ihe money now spent could be used much more effectively and efficiently. This would come Ihrough ihe  sharing and trading of book stocks. Another major way  would be through Ihe acquisition of complementary  resources.  To achieve a fully satisfactory and complele network of  library services, a base population of 75,000 is needed.  That would mean ihe Sunshine Coast would have to do  something like enter an arrangement to somehow work  together with the adjacent areas of Powell River and  Squamish.  Whatever the area that comes together to provide better  library services, there need not be a single system or single  governing body, lt can jusi as well be a loose confederation of autonomous local libraries gathered together to  share and co-ordinate resources.  The possibility of achieving a library confederation of  75,000 people with Squamish and Powell River areas may  be remote, at least for the lime being. Bul the whole Sunshine Coast area can make giant strides forward in library  services through the inclusion of all neighbourhoods and  by way of co-operation among Ihem all.  It has been shown by survey this is what the people of  the Sunshine Coast want. The elected representatives, the  libraries and the book centres of the Sunshine Coast have  an opportunity, and a duty, to obey the will of the people  in this regard.  SCRD note  We made a point last week about the scarcity of political  candidates at the local level.  Consider, on the SCRD only Stan Dixon of the truncated Area C has won his seat by election. All other directors have been returned unopposed or appointed.  It should make you think.  ...trdm Ihe filet of ffie COAST NEWS  gfiinDlrwjffia  5 YEARS AGO  Sunshine Coast School District 46 Board decided to file  two injunctions against picketing teachers and CUPE  workers. The board moved after receiving a petition for  such action. The petition was signed by 50 parents who  wanted the teachers back to work.  Incumbent Area E director Jim Gurney was running  against his sister-in-law Pat Gurney in the only regional  area requiring an election.

There's a connection  Arms race and free trade  by Shirley Hall  Is there a connection between  the free trade deal and the arms  race? This was the question addressed by Canadian Naval  Commander Roger Sweeny  (Ret.).  As a representative of  Veterans Against Nuclear Arms  (VANA), he spoke at a meeting  sponsored by the Sunshine  Coast Peace Committee on  November 7 at Sechelt Elementary School.  Sweeny is a 31-year 'true  blue' career naval officer. After  serving in various naval operations, he became an expert on  special weapons. One of his  duties was to plan a blinding  nuclear explosion over the  Baltic to 'scare the Russians'.  Canadian naval strategy was  determined by cold war mentality.  All through Sweeny's career  he'd been "fed a bill of goods  -not lies, but disinformation:  Blue against red, good against  bad, and us against the Russians." Because of security he  couldn't speak about his career,  or travel to Warsaw Pact countries for five years after retirement.  During this period he began  to question the things he'd been  told. When he finally had his  security clearance, it was "as if  a weight was lifted from my  shoulders," and he began to  speak up. He then joined  VANA.  VANA has three objectives:  to prevent war, to make war extinct, and to prevent trespass on  our country.  In   discussing   the   present  government's White Paper on  Defence, he said it is full of lies  and distortions and is based on  Pentagon policy. In fact, when  questioning the Defence  Department on the White  Paper, he was given Pentagon  publications, full of details on  Soviet military strength, to explain the policies.  The International Institute  for Strategic Studies concluded  that, despite the claims of the  Pentagon document, there was  no superiority on either side.  He said that the DWP is also  based on the false premise that  Canada is defensible. It would  be impossible for us with our  huge land mass and thousands  of miles of seacoasl'to defend  ' ourselves from attack by air,  sea, or land. Thus Canada must  be a peace keeper.  He feels that, although it  would cost us money, Canada  should take over NORAD and  promise to monitor the Arctic  area for both the U.S. and  Russia. This way the U.S.  would have no excuse for their  present violations of our  sovereignty.  Of the nuclear submarines,  Sweeny said we don't need  them. They will be highly  destabilizing, and we will be  paying for them for the rest of  our lives.  Contrary to what the proponents of these submarines  say, it would be suicidal to take  them into the shallow Arctic  waters. No commander in his  right mind would use them as  the government has said they  should be used, to maintain  sovereignty in the Arctic.  Besides,   submarines   can't  show the flag!  As to the question, "Is there  a connection between the Free  Trade Agreement and the Arms  Race?" Sweeny's answer was a  resounding, "Yes!"  In discussing the deal he  stated there is a very strong  military link. Outlining the  history of the military industry's  backing for the treaty, he said it  is backed by 150 multi-national  companies that control an investment of over $700 billion.  They want military contracts.  Under the deal the only industry exempt from the clause  against regional subsidies is the  military. Further regional aid  would be in the form of military  contracts, he says.  Canada's military trade with  the U.S. has, however, three  problems: It depends upon  American markets, our access  to   these  markets  is  at  the  In a nutshell  pleasure of the president and  Congress, and, thirdly, we must  buy as much from the U.S. as  we sell to them.  If Canada becomes tied into  the U.S. military-industrial network, what would happen if,  for example, we refused to continue cruise missile testing,  Sweeny asked.  In conclusion, Sweeny said  VANA is not against military  spending. Our armed forces  desperately need upgrading.  But they believe our defence  policy must take a new direction. They have written their  own DWP based on three  premises:  War is absolute, Canadian  forces should be used to  strengthen U.N. peace-keeping,  and, if enough people speak up,  there may be a change in the aggressive military direction our  country is taking.  *#  Upon a     ~~~  little hill  / stood tiptoe upon a little hill.  The air was cooling, and so very still,  That the sweet buds which with a modest pride  Pull droopingly, in slanting curve aside,  Their scanty-leaved, and finely tapering stems,  Had not yet lost their starry diadems  Caught from the early sobbing of the morn.

Nutter  Two books in one year ('88)  by generally popular American  writers, one a journalist, the  other a novelist in which the  death of Socrates is a central  event, may be seen itself as  something of an event and  hardly it would seem, a mere  coincidence.  One by I.F. (Izzy) Stone, The  Trial of Socrates, is already being called 'something of a cult'  in America. Izzy Stone must be  getting on a bit these days.  I'm sure I remember reading  him in the nation in the thirties,  and for just on 20 years after  that he edited I.F. Stone's  Weekly, a paper that made hay  with what was said by politicians and what was demonstrably fact.  The other book, by Joseph  Heller (who wrote Catch-22), is  called Picture This and its hard  to picture it as any kind of a cult  book. It's a 'novel', his sixth,  but presents a new, or fanciful,  view of history.  The jacket blurb says he  'changes our view of history'.  Briefly, Rembrandt is painting his picture of Aristotle. As  he fills in the imagined figure on  the canvas, the philosopher's  ghost or whatever, comes back  into it and begins to muse about  the old days, while taking note  of the new scene as he can see it.  Rembrandt's studio and all the  going on with his housekeepers,  creditors etc.  The ghost stays with the picture from buyer to buyer ending  up in present day New York,  but its musings carry on with a  central theme: the trail and  death of his old teacher's  teacher, Socrates.  Why, at this time in America  in '88 this renewal of interest in  Socrates? The historical Socrates is almost as hard to get at as  the historical Jesus.  Neither left any writings of  their own. Both passed their  message or thoughts to groups  of young friends or disciples to  carry further as best they might.  However, Stone would make a  point that neither's message  would have come through to us  if it hadn't been for the drama  of their executions. 'Socrates  needed the hemlock', he says,  'to fulfill a mission'.  Socrates lived 400 years  before Christ, and in Athens at  the time 'democracy' was beginning. A brave concept at the  time it seemed, and it had its  ups and down as Athens was  mostly at war and when times  got tough they'd feel they needed a strongman.  Socrates was not attacked,  however, in the times of the  strongmen, but in a time of the  resurgence of democracy.  He had done his service in  these wars voluntarily and with  some distinction, it's said. But  on getting back home, he seems  to have become a bit of a  character about town.  He seems never to have had  any money to speak of (his wife  Xantippe is often quoted on this  point). He didn't form any kind  of school, but taught up and  down town to groups of young  people who came to him, Plato  for one, often from quite far  away, who were sometimes  charged with getting too much  into the wine.  His style of teaching was to  elicit some statement from the  pupil on some ordinary topic,  like love, question this as far as  it would go and comment on the  answers.  When he was charged (by the  democratic committee 'the  eleven') he was an old man as he  styled himself, possibly 70. The  main charge was 'impiety', that  he did not believe in 'the gods  the state believes in' and it carried the death penalty.  He was not what we'd call an  atheist, but the old gods were  going out in his day. Stone  argues that this charge was based on Socrates' refusal to go  along with a new god, Peitho, a  cult being developed as the god  of 'Demekratia'.  Is it here that we find the new  interest in Socrates? In his  refusal to have elevated a  political option (however the  best) into a religion? His pointing out the difference between  a political option, which can be  debated, and a religion, which  brooks no criticism?  Stone writes unequivocally  that the values of modem  secular democracy are the  highest there are, meaning there  are no higher religious ones.  Religion is the attitude we have  to the unknown, and the  unknown is still most of what  we feel, hear, see and touch.  Our stance to that will go  beyond how to handle the  domestic matters of society.  We may be out of 'old gods',  or running out. Or maybe we're  not. In either case, the politicians however fervent, informed, inspired or otherwise  dedicated cannot possibly fill  this gap.  Or if they do, in practice, we  will be much the poorer for it.  We cannot make a 'god' out of  'society'.  These two books, coining  now, by two money writers and  produced by two top publishers,  are at least an indication some  debate on religion and politics is  respectable. It is likely just  beginning.  " r* ���" !�����������.  ' ���������������^������ II I     ������  ,    letters to the Edit  Coast News, November 14,1988  Give away country or vote NDP  Editor:  Canada was created by hardworking, venturesome people,  many of whom left a comfortable situation in their  homeland to provide a better  living for them and their  families.  They settled and developed  our beautiful country with its  vast resources, which could  have provided a decent living  for all but instead of that, we  allowed certain individuals to  turn our economy into a dogfight with a few coming out  with big pieces of meat, leaving  the rest to fight over the scraps.  The winners of the dog-fight  wound up owning a hefty chunk  of our natural resources, the  means of production and also  controlled the media which  systematically brainwashed us  into believing that private enterprise gives freedom whilst  public ownership is regimentation.  They also taught many of us  to hate the word 'Socialism'.  The only freedom provided by  Private Enterprise which they  prefer to call 'Free Enterprise' is  the freedom to get rich by making others poor and the  regimentation they favour is  having employees work for inadequate wages under bad  working conditions.  If it wasn't for the unions  which private enterprisers  tolerate, inadequate wages and  intolerable working conditions  would be much more common.  Private enterprise is devoid of  patriotism and its sole objective  is profit. Witness large corporations having amassed their  wealth in and from North  America, setting up plants in  countries where wages are  lower, then shipping their products to this continent, putting  North American workers out-  of-work.  Now, in our country we see  entrepreneurs selling our choice  real estate, forests, mines,  oilwells, etc. to foreigners, i.e.  Vancouver real estate to Hong  Kong and Japanese citizens,  B.C. Forest and Canadian  Forest Products selling then-  plants and timber rights to New  Zealand and Japanese interests.  Would it not be preferable  for we, Canada, to own and  control our production facilties  so as to produce for need rather  than provide profits for foreign  entrepreneurs, who, if not stopped will be calling all the shots  with we being aliens in our own  land.  If you like the give-away of  our country and its resources,  vote Liberal, Progressive Conservative, Socred, Reform or  Christian Heritage���as they all  support private enterprise. If  you don't like this give-away,  vote New Democrat.  Lome B. Blain  Public debt is leading problem  Editor:  Re: Federal Elections  Politicians, in their attempt  to win votes, appear to disregard the fundamental problem facing Canada today. The  main decision facing our country is not whether or not we  should enter into free trade with  the U.S., it is the public debt  and the recurring annual budget  deficit.  Canada today is 'in the hole'  for $300 billion federally and a  further $100 billion provincial-  ly, a total of $400 billion or  $16,000 for each inhabitant of  our lands! The federal government spends 30 percent of its  annual income on servicing this,  our debt. Each year a further  $30 billion is added to this debt  through overspending on consumption.  The creditors (holders) of this  debt are to a large extent  foreigners, i.e. Japanese, Hong  Kong Chinese, Germans, Arab  oil millionaires, etc. etc. They  expect to be paid back. If they  see Canada floundering financially (as we are), they will descend on us like vultures and demand payment. The same situation as if a bank goes under.  If we do not have the cash to  pay them (which we have not),  government has two options,  viz.  1. To start printing worthless  paper money (Canadian $)  resulting in uncontrollable  runaway inflation and  economic disaster (Weimar  republic in Germany), or  2. 'Sell out our country' to  these creditors.  They and not the Yanks will  tell us what pensions the  government can pay, whether  child care benefits, unemployment/welfare benefits are  possible, to whom we can sell  our energy, water, timber,  mineral resources, manufactured goods and services. They  will dictate to us what value we  shall get for our wealth.  This will result in a similar  situation in which many less  developed countries find  themselves today vis-a-vis the  World Bank and other International Finance. These less  developed countries are dictated  to redirect their resources away  from consumption to development and servicing their debts.  Hardly a day passes without  one of the 'three great leaders'  promising huge consumption  expenditure. The result of such  overspending is explained  above. Who was the Finance  Minister and Prime Minister  when our huge public debt was  acquired? Who perpetuates increasing the public debt? Who is  prepared to eliminate the  budget deficit? Who is willing  to reduce the public debt? The  choice is yours, I shall vote for  the latter, if they are fotmd at  all.  Jakob Knaus  Sechelt, B.C.  More for libraries  Editor:  I am writing in support of increasing the funding for Gibsons Library to the per capita  level called for by the librarian  Pam Feichtner, explaining the  funding crisis in your paper, My  family has had years of enjoyment and enrichment from this  library at obviously minimum  cost to the taxpayer because of  dedicated volunteer help.  As Ms Feichtner explains, the  library needs to expand and  needs increased funds. As a taxpayer I ask that council and the  regional district support this excellent use of funds.  For the future, and considering the inadequacies of present  funding, libraries are increasingly windows to the outside  world using electronic terminals  to access data bases, the world's  information sources and  libraries, microfiches, laserdiscs  and other nonbook sources of  information. Small town B.C.  has always been disadvantaged  in regards to accessing information and the wealth and enrichment resulting.  It seems to me that developing terminals and access at the  high school for students there  and the whole community is a  realistic solution. I've been told  that Elphinstone library was  designed to be a community use  facility.  Schools are information  disseminating institutions  -Channel 10 has been an excellent example of a program  for both the school and the  community. Why not cooperate and combine volunteers  and funding for another excellent community resource.  W.R. Henderson  More letters  Page %l  THIS WEEK  at the "all new" OMEGA!

The workers, who are mainly concerned with benefits and  wages, have already discussed taking anolher vote in 90 days  if their employer doesn't recognize their demands.  Elves herring sale  November 19 and 20 are the tentative dates for the annual  Fishermen's Union Herring Sale on the behalf of the Elves  CluB. The sale will be at the Mickey J at the government  wharf in Gibsons.  by Harold Blaine  It looks as though a new Saan  store in Gibsons may be the anchor tenant for the proposed  Park Center on the south side of  Highway 101 west of the  Twilight Theatre off Highway  101, if the site becomes  available first. Otherwise the  store could go on the Art  Giesbrecht property further  west on the north side of the  highway.  Gibsons Planning Committee  November 8 was told the commercial rezoning for a third  alternative Saan location south  of the Petrocan gas station was  dropped as another site was being considered for the store.  Meanwhile the Park Center and  Giesbrecht commercial zoning  applications are proceeding  together.  Town Planner Buchan  reported, "Long-awaited approval in principle from the  Ministry of Highways (for the  Park Center proposal) was  received October 6, with  documentation now being  redied between applicant's  solicitor and the town approving officer. The matter can then  be referred to council for either  the establishment of a public  hearing or third reading and  adoption. In this consideration,  it should be noted that a  previous aborted bylaw for this  long-proposed development  proceeded through an uneventful public hearing.  "By way of clarification in  the issue of the proposed anchor  tenant, Saan's department  store, I understand that with  regard to their 'other' possible  location south of Petrocan, they  are retaining their option there  only to keep both possibilities  open to them. It appears that  the first which comes available  to them will be their final  choice," said Buchan.  But the town isn't letting the  rezoning of the property south  of Petrocan drop. Rather, at the  town planner's suggestion, it is  going ahead with it as the first  example of a new 'hard zoning'  policy.  "Council may either choose  to hold this bylaw pending a  resolution of the (Saan) matter,  or consider this site as the first  application of the pre-zoning  concept previously introduced;  as being (a property) in conformity with the Official Community Plan; and as a stimulus  to economic development,"  wrote Planner Buchan.  "The bylaw has had first and  second reading. Do we wish to  proceed?" asked Chairman  John Reynolds.  "I move that the planner be  authorized to go ahead with the  pre-planning of that area. It is a  natural in-filling of a commercial area. No other zoning is  possible," said Alderman Gerry  Dixon.  Finish gas pipeline in 1990  His fellow council members  agreed.  In the matter of the  Giesbrecht site, the planner  reported, "The application has  received first and second  reading on April 5. The public  hearing was waived but the required public notification has  been given (hy advertisement)...  Processed to highways ministry  April 27, with final bylaw approval received October 18. Required survey plans and  documentation are awaited, for  re-introduction to council as  soon as possible."  A council decision could  determine which application  finishes first!  Continued from page 1  are large and they at first will  consume 75 percent of the gas  sold.  "The big industries will carry  the project initially. Later the  commercial and residential  customers will be the majority,  but that will take time," said the  pipeline instigator.  The water crossings will be  double pipes. All the welds are  100 percent X-rayed. A very  special steel, almost a space-age  product, will be used, he said.  The pipe will be almost half-  inch thick in the water and just  over a quarter-inch thick in  land. Towns negotiate with the  distribution company.  They get a fee for the use of  their streets. This is usually  about three percent.  All the municipalities along  the way are potential customers.  The whole thing, as well as the  rates, is under the direction of  the B.C. Public Utilities Commission.  Kavanagh gave assurance  that local property owners don't  have to worry about the coming  of the pipeline. West Coast in  its 32 years has only ever had  one expropriation of property,  he said.  Property owners get a fee  from the company, plus an  amount for compensation. The  firm very much wants to have  its construction workers off the  Sunshine Coast before the summer of 1990 so as not to disturb  tourists.

That's the day three of the six  hopeful aldermanic candidates  will be chosen by the people to  represent them on Sechelt  District council.  Many concerns have surfaced  in the election campaigns of the  candidates but environmental  issues appear to be at the top.  Some of the aldermanic  hopefuls have also stated that  Sechelt council is badly managed and that the council does not  listen to the people it is supposed to serve.  To help readers get better acquainted with the candidates,  the Coast News has prepared a  look at their individual  backgrounds and some of the  issues that concern them.  ROBERT GRAHAM  Robert Graham would like to  bring his expertise on environmental issues to his position as alderman if he is elected.  For the last 17 years, Graham  worked for the Ministry of Environment in the pollution control section.  In 1987, he retired as a senior  environmental officer and moved to the Sunshine Coast.  Graham was born in 1925 in  Dundee, Scotland. He is married with one son living in  Sechelt and another son living  in Vancouver.  "I'm concerned about a  number of issues but I am  especially interested in environmental concerns. For example, I feel there should  always be a buffer zone between  industry and the community.  "The term, light industry,  should be clarified, too. And  once bylaws are passed, they  should be enforced," says  Graham.  "Once a zoning plan is made  official, we should stick to that  plan as well," he adds.  Prior to his involvement with  the Ministry of Environment,  Graham spent 16 years in the oil  and chemical industry and was  trained as a third class steam  engineer.  "I really feel my background  would be of use on council. On  issues concerning the environment, I can speak from a wealth  of experience," says Graham.  "I'm also very interested in  the subject of school taxes. I  would like to see a better library  for the district," he adds.  "I hope I will get the opportunity to contribute to council.  But I am also happy to see the  democratic process alive and  well in Sechelt," said Graham.  JOYCE KOLIBAS  Joyce Kolibas has been an  alderman on Sechelt Council  since 1986. She is hoping to be  re-elected for another two-year  term. Prior to 1986, Kolibas  was Sechelt's mayor for nearly  four years.  "I knew restructuring would  have problems from the beginning, so I decided to get involved.  I wanted to see what could happen in this area," she said.  Over the last six years,  Kolibas says she has been on  almost every committee. But,  more recently, she has been involved with finance, library,  PEP, the Coast-Garibaldi  Health Unit and arts liaison.  She also represents council for  PAI.S.  Kolibas was born in Edmonton, Alberta in 1926 and moved  to the Sunshine Coast in 1974.  She is married with one grown  daughter.  "I would like to see a nice  community for the residents of  Sechelt District with controlled  development. Of course,  visitors would like this as well.  However, I don't feel promoting tourism is a function of  council. That should be left to  the Chamber of Commerce,"  says Kolibas.  "I hope that if I am re-elected  I can continue to accomplish  things to benefit the area. Having been on council for a  number of years, I know that it  is an ongoing process where  projects can be at all different  stages. I'd like to stick with it  and see some of these projects  to completion," she added.  Kolibas says that no matter  what the results of the election  are, she is happy to see that the  people have a choice.  "I'd like to urge everyone to  listen carefully to their candidates, do a little investigating  and make an informed decision.  It is so important that they get  out and vote," she added.  When Kolibas is not involved  with council work, she likes to  spend her free time hiking,  Scottish dancing or going to  church.  Before Pratt retired, he was  director of planning for the  department of transportation in  Ottawa. At present, he belongs  to the St. Mary's Hospital Auxiliary, the Royal Canadian  Legion and serves on an advisory board for Capilano College.  "For this district, I'd like to  see a community centre for the  kids. Although I'm sure we  need a golf course, I'm not so  sure it should go in the location  that council has proposed. We  need more research done on  that," says Pratt.  Pratt is married with a grown  family and six grandchildren.  CHARLES PRATT  Charles Pratt decided to  retire to the Sunshine Coast  after seeing a Sunshine Coast  Realtor paper. That was over  three years ago.  After worrying that aldermen  might be returned by acclamation, he decided to run for election this month.  Pratt, 65, was born in  England and moved to Canada  in 1946 after serving seven years  with the British Infantry. He  started out as a newspaper  reporter in Canada, travelling  the country and working with a  number of daily and weekly  newspapers.  A career change followed,  with Pratt working as a  manager of a large construction  company and as an executive  with the Saskatchewan Power  Corporation.  "I've been a manager for 40  years now and, quite frankly,  Sechelt District is badly managed. It's not a problem of communication between the various  groups, it is a problem of not  listening," says Pratt.  "We have a fish farm company blatantly disregarding the  law and no one with enough  gumption to say stop. The  marsh has been turned into a  stinking swamp and we have  been talking about developing  Block Seven for three years  now.  "I think it is time we did  something concrete about these  issues," Pratt says.

DAVID WELLS  David Wells, 59, was born  and raised in Toronto, Ontario.  After working for the CBC for  33 years, he decided to retire  about a year ago to the Sunshine Coast.  "After being involved in the  management level of the CBC, I  feel I am very familiar with the  workings of boards. I know  how lo read the fine print and I  know what it means. I think this  previous experience would be  useful in the position of alderman," he says.  Wells says he believes in letting people do their jobs and in  accepting a lot of input. "I'm  sure this attitude would be of  benefit to council," he adds.  At present, Wells is a  volunteer driver for the Adult  Day Care Centre as well as the  president of the Sunshine Coast  Home Support Society Board.  "As far as the issues are concerned, I am particularly interested in the airport expansion, Block Seven, the tax base  and, especially, the transportation problem on the Sunshine  Coast. When I see young people  hitch-hiking along the highway,  I wonder why there is no better  alternative. I know I wouldn't  want my daughter out there,"  Wells says.  "I also would like to see  Block Seven developed. I feel as  high prices in Vancouver force  people to move to the Sunshine  Coast, we should have better  services available for everyone  in the community," he says.  In addition to his work with  the CBC, Wells was also a  superintendent with St. John's  Ambulance for a period of 15  years. In 1983, he was appointed secretariat of the Ontario Region Energy Conservation Committee and became  heavily involved with conservation projects.  Wells is married with one  grown daughter and lists his interests as travel, reading,  aeronautics and music.  3 major issues  Coast News, November 14,1988  Sechelt debate  Len Herder  seeks re-election  ROBERT YOUNG  Robert Young believes an idle  mind gets into trouble. For this  reason, he says he'd like to see a  number of youth programs  developed if he is elected Sechelt  alderman.  Young has worked with  young people before in drug  Continued from page 1  Bob Young said he attended  the lecture on acid rain in the  area and felt it was of serious  concern, as was all pollution.  He told the audience that  although he had been cautioned  not to say anything, he was concerned about radioactive equipment that is being used at Port  Mellon to check the welds on  steel beams.  Pollution, he said, is a real  concern on the Sunshine Coast.  During questioning on the  golf  course   for   Sechelt,  and alcohol abuse programs as  well as youth recreation programs. After moving to the  Sechelt area 11 years ago, he  began organizing and coaching  softball and baseball for ages  5-15.  "I'm really big on recreation.  I'd like to see a teen centre,  youth programs as well as a  recreation centre to provide  facilities for the whole family,"  he says.  Young, 42, was born in  Regina, Saskatchewan. He is  married with three grown  children. He is a production  worker with Howe Sound Pulp  and Paper. Recently, Young  and a partner started a painting  business in Sechelt.  "I am also concerned with  environmental issues. I feel the  Sechelt Marsh was handled very  poorly. There was no need to  locate the Public Works Yard so  close to the marsh. This council  does not listen to the people,"  said Young.  mayoralty candidate Meredith  brought in the question of water  for the golf greens in the  selected area. He pointed out  that, at present, it would be extremely costly to build the golf  course by the arena.  All candidates seemed to  agree people should be listened  to, in issues that affect their  neighbourhood. But Bud Koch  pointed out the democratic process kicked in at election time  and that was where people were  heard best.  "Although, I don't have  previous experience as an alderman, I believe what counts is  what you do as a member of  council, not what you've done  in the past," he added.  "I am ready to listen to the  people and be a voice for them  on council. We need strong  leadership and strong administration,'' says Young.  He is a member of Senior  Citizens Branch 69 and is president of the Commercial Men's  Ice Hockey League.  "I would really like the  chance to work with people on  issues that concern us, not work  against them," says Young.

SHOP LOCALLY  by George Cooper, 886-8520  Complaints from residents  that children on their way to  school were in danger from  speeding motor vehicles have  led to increased patrols of the  roads from Gibsons to the ferry  terminal.  Riding one wet morning last  week as an observer with Constable Les Leyh of Highway  Patrol gave me some pointers in  careful driving that I, for one,  have likely been careless about.  For instance that stretch of  road is well posted both ways  with 50 km per hour signs.  Children, both little and big, are  walking on a shoulderless and  narrow road.  They gather at their bus stops  and a few of them romp about  unconcerned about traffic.  There are drivers fearful of  being'late for the 8:30 ferry.  Desperate drivers and carefree  children - not a compatible mix.  "A highway by-pass can  resolve this situation," said  Constable Leyh, "and  preferably one with no school  buses on it, or at least with  stops clear of the highway."  While we are waiting for such  a miracle to occur, vehicle  drivers will have to get to and  from the ferry with more care  than they show at present.  For those who don't drive  within the posted limit - there  are signs near Cozy Corners and  the Y-junction near the terminal  Our  LOOK What We Found  While Moving SALE  #1 ECONO STUDS  80* EA  4X8X'/4  'D' GRADE FIR  $1900/  SHT.  6' CEDAR PICNIC  TABLES  #   CLOSET  ORGANIZERS  Up to 5' Wide Closets  $44" EA  Up to 8' Wide Closets  *69" EA  4 L Int-Ext  WHITE LATEX  $1499  4 L Semi Gloss  LATEX ENAMEL  $1999  Can Be Tinted  To Paslel Shades  30"x80"#rcOlON/ST  $49" EA  32"X80"  FRENCH DOOR  Brass Bar  *12900EA  2 ONLY  6X8 TARPS  *388 EA.  1" S3S  RED OAK  *3"/bd.ft.

Speeding brings a three-point  penalty. Get enough of those  penalties and you receive a nice  birthday greeting from the  Superintendent of Motor  Vehicles and perhaps an enforced rest from driving.  "The radar we have now  gives the speed of an oncoming  car as well as my own," said  Les, who had just tested his set  with two tuning forks, "and it  can pick out the speed of a  motorcycle separate from a  truck that might be right behind  it."  After a couple of pickup  drivers had been stopped and  ticketed, I asked, "What's the  usual reaction of a driver when  he is ticketed?"  "I often enough hear him  say, 'Why aren't you checking  my street? Speeding there all the  time'."  But a new response popped  up a couple of mornings later.  "How come you guys are on  patrol an hour before ferry  time? I thought the newspaper  said a half hour before."  CHOIR CONCERT  The Vancouver Welsh Men's  choir made St. Bart's new hall  resound gloriously the weekend  of November 5 and 6.  Music, both traditional and  religious made up the program  along with selections from  popular musicals like  Oklahoma and South Pacific.  And best of all, a ringing rendition of the Welsh national anthem.  Cathy Crawford of St. Bart's  said the choir found the ac-  coustics equal to the volume of  a 64-voice choir. "We had sold-  out houses for both performances," she said, "and Sunday afternoon we did squeeze 20  more chairs in to make 170."  Robin Thomas, the exuberant choir director, has  engaged extensively in choir  work since his students days in  UBC's College of Music.  The choir, begun in 19S0,  made its mark at Expo 86 which  led to an invitiation to Expo 88  and other concerts in Australia  and New Zealand. Besides its \  concerts here, the choir spent '  many hours of the weekend in a  musical retreat at Camp  Elphinstone.  If the retreat becomes an annual event, the Coast may be  treated to more concerts by this  renowned choir.  REMEMBRANCE EVENT  Elphinstone Secondary  presented a splendid Remembrance program November 10  which was attended by the  whole student body and veteran  guests from the Gibsons  Legion.  Prepared by PWJLlVJurjay  and his photographyclass"and  ably assisted by volunteer  parent, Tom Sheldon, the slide  show presented scenes of wars  in our recent past. Scenes that  showed the anguish war brings  and the lives it cost to regain  and preserve freedom.  The production took many,  many hours in the making.  There was the search for  materials and the preparation of  the narrative by the students.  There was Tom Sheldon's  technical skill and the many  days he spent preparing and  organizing the slides.  To the students, too young to  remember the wars, and to the  veterans, who do remember, the  program gave much to think  about.  The veteran guests thank the  students who prepared the program, the school band and the  piper, and the principal, Martyn  Wilson, for a memorable  Remembrance program.  COMMUNITY EVENTS  In response to the need for  more citizens to take part in  developing and organizing  recreation outlets in Gibsons  and district a meeting has been  called for this Wednesday,  November 16, at 7:30 in the  Marine Room.

Then members ensured the rest of the day was  spent in celebration of peace by  providing hot food and  refreshments. These enticed  those there to linger and  socialize with friends and  neighbours.  Jim Morris, a former Pender  Harbourite, entertained Branch  112 members and guests with  songs, music and a political  commentary. He backed up  both tenor saxophonist Kerri  Fowler and vocalist Ada Priest  for separate numbers that captured all of the audience's attention and appreciation.  Also in the category of  Legion news, Roy Dusenbury  got the high score on  Thursday's dart night with a  total of 174. Team 9 (Harold  Clay, Joe McCann, Ruth  Langton, and Betty Rayburn)  are leading the competition. But  it's a very close race. If you're  interested in being part of the  tournament, spares are usually  needed.  The Legion holds cribbage  games on Wednesday nights.  But these are drop-in games and  pre-registration isn't necessary.  Prizes are offered. Crib  players from the whole community are welcome. If you're  interested, phone 883-9632.  Tickets are now on sale at $10  each for the New Year's Eve  dance (at the Legion). This will  include a cold plate dinner and  music by the Spin Offs, a band  made up of some of the Harbour Lights big band.  Happy   79th   birthday   to  Branch   112   treasurer,   Bill  Evans.  BINGO  This is the week, finally, that  Pender Harbour Bingo resumes  at the Community Hall. The  $300 jackpot is usually reserved  for the player that can fill a card  in a specified number of calls.  But this time it will be given out  to the first full card, with no call  number restriction.  PUMPKIN PRANK  Hallowe'en is over, but I'm  still hearing rumours about  gremlins that deposited several  hundred oranges (in various  stages of decomposition) in a  Department of Highways' office.  You understand that, because  this is just a rumour, I can't  mention any names. But I hear  the oranges filled drawers, filing  cabinets, and every nook and  cranny of the office.  Why oranges? They looked,  to the gremlins, like miniature  pumpkins.  BAZAAR  The Area A Health Clinic  Auxiliary Christmas Bazaar will  begin at 11 am, not 10 as I said  last week, on November 26.

Council  still  worried  Disquiet continues to reign in  Gibsons Council over the  failure to get something done  about the local effects of the  major pulp and paper mill expansion under way at Port  Mellon. Council members continue to complain they aren't  getting the necessary cooperation from Howe Sound  Pulp and Paper Ltd.  Council considered it had a  commitment from the company  that a comprehensive social and  economic impact planning  study was going to bt done.  Having received the results of a  study called the Connor Report,  aldermen continue to be  dissatisfied.  "I'm very disappointed at the  co-operation we're receiving,"  said Alderman John Reynolds,  chairman, at a meeting of his  committee the night of  November 8. "We need a larger  area task force to decide the  outcome."  Planner Rob Buchan said he  had copies of the report  prepared for each member of  the Gibsons Economic Development Commission. The EDC is  busy with restructuring and until finished with that can't deal  with the plant impact question.  "I am expecting a general impression on how they (the EDC)  stand, but I want to hear in  writing from them," he said.  Three separate reports had  come from the town planner to  the council on the big plant's  impact.  "But we haven't received all  the information we have requested," said planning chairman Reynolds.  Mayor Diane Strom noted  the decision was made to wait  on the EDC report before making public comment.  "The things we have to deal  with are the ones we can do  something about," said Alderman Gerry Dixon.  "There is much beyond our  control. We have to zero in on  policing, for instance," said  Alderman Dixon.  "I'm extremely disappointed  at just how badly they (the company) have approached the impact question. They didn't have  the opportunity for discussion  with the planner and me."  Planner Buchan has advised  council the Connor Report is  really a preliminary social study  and insufficient to form the  basis of real conclusions and  community decisions.  "The things we're going to  have to be concerned with are  those that strictly pertain to the  town," said Mayor Strom.  "New plans were reportedly  unveiled at a meeting of  Dogpatch residents the other  night," said Planner Buchan.  MiiJurrrTi i  rr,__,���.,.....  Considering  RUSSIA?  Ask Mary.

DONATION  Our branch has been advised  by the manager of the Bank of  Montreal that they will be  donating $1000 to our new activity centre building fund. It is  really encouraging when the  business community recognizes  the importance of our project to  the entire area by their financial  backing and acknowledgement  of the active role in the community of our seniors.  Should other local businesses  care to follow suit, the receipt  issues may be used for official  income tax purposes.  Inside Sechelt  As mayor it has been my resonsibility to direct municipal activities in the best way for the majority of  residents of Sechelt in order to benefit from our change from a village of 1,000 to a district municipality of close to 5,000. Our growth outlined below has been a team effort between mayor, aldermen, the  administrator and staff. We are fortunate to have qualified individuals in these positions.  >. By more efficient utilization ol personnel with our larger size  we have been able to keep the tax rate of the municipality in the  bottom six municipalities in the Province. Ours is the lowest on the  Sunshine Coast.  2. By representation to senior governments we have secured  funds at no local cost for a variety of projects designed to increase  our amenities and improve our lifestyle. These include:  - Aquisition of D.L. 1646 as a grant from the Province which  is now cleared for a potential golf course. Sale of the timber  has placed over $600,000 in the bank for future utilization.  - Development of Kinnickinnick Park and Chapman Creek  trails with a $123,000 Job-Trac program.  ��� Received funding for a study and then promises by the  D.O.T. to consider funding for extension of the airport runway  to 4000 feet, plus added facilities at an estimated $1.4 million  upgrade.  - Funds from the Provincial government to initiate the  Sechelt Canal Parkway feasibility study.  - A commitment from the Provincial Highways to widen and  improve Wharf Street including sidewalks, curb, gutter and  drainage at an estimated $1 million plus.  3. By taking advantage of land acquisition opportunities future  parks and commercial developments have been assured. These include:  ��� Aquisition of Block 7 in the downtown core. This 7 acre  site purchased at $550,000 has now been appraised at over 3  times our purchase price. Studies are underway for utilization  and provision of numerous amenities for our residents with  particular emphasis on the youth of the community.  - Aquisition of Rockwood Lodge. This facility has now been  beautifully landscaped and refurbished for utilization by  groups for events such as the Writers' Festival.  - Acquisition of Lot 5 and 6, generally known as the Accacia  Tree Park and Cenotaph area. This will add additional green  space in the central core helping to beautify our municipality.  - Acquisition by gift from C. Mitten a portion of D.L. 1356 at  Davis Bay permitting placement of much needed restroom  facilities. In this connection there is $80,000 in the bank for  widening the foreshore by 10 to 12 feet allowing for a seawalk  and giving better access to the beach area at Davis Bay.  4. Waterfront improvements have given greater access and enjoyment. These include:  - Opening of 3 water access right-of-ways.  - Development of the boat launching ramp and parking at  Porpoise Bay for both resident and tourist recreational use.  - Landscaping and site improvement along the waterfront  west from the Sechelt Band land including Snickett Park.  5. We have provided funds by either grants or helped in securing  funding for the following:  ��� Tetrahedron ski development.  - Passed a bylaw giving tax relief to the seniors' facilities for  the foreseeable future.  - Chamber of Commerce for the Information Centre.  - Increased the grant to the library to $20,000 annually.  - Festival of Written Arts  - Arts Council  - Numerous other small contributions for worthy causes.  6. Other than the planned physical improvement to the  municipality by Highways, the mayor and council have done the  following:  ��� With our improved credit rating and borrowing power we  have been able to start the much needed surface drainage  project to be adequate for a projected 40 years. A $280,000  project.  - Our own works yard. After sale ot a rented area previously  used for this purpose we were able to acquire 5 lots at no additional cost to the municipality. The new building that was  built will be paid for out of revenue and at the same time there  will be rent savings of over $15,000 per year.  - Developers have been required to put in sidewalks allowing for wheelchair access. At the same time the municipality  has been placing others,  - Dolphin Street has undergone a major upgrade.  - Hackett Park has been improved with lawn seeding, clearing and landscaping.  - Park development in Sandy Hook.  - Brookman Park development in Davis Bay now in the  planning stage.  - Numerous street lights have been installed for increased  safety.  7. As mayor I have been supportive ol activities by the Chamber  of Commerce, the seniors' organization and their efforts for a  facility, the Marsh Society, tourist organizations and others who  contribute to the growth and betterment 'ot tne community.  Development of mutual relations with the Sechelt Indian Band and  possible integration of services has been a priority. All of these  things I believe are necessary for a more cohesive community.  There are still things we need to do to improve our community and prepare for the future.  We need facilities for our youth and we need some light industry to help hold them in the  area. We need to increase our co-operative effort with the Sechelt Indian Band so that we  direct our activities towards a mutual goal. We need to make sure our seniors have a lifestyle  both pleasant and comfortable. We need to regulate economic growth to the benefit of all  concerned; and, we need to protect our environment and beautify our surroundings in the  process.  Because so many things need to be accomplished from unfinished projects, yet keep  Sechelt in the lower tax rates, I have felt that I need another term of office to help reach some  of these goals. In this I need the support of the community and I ask for your vote on election  day to help accomplish these ends.

Whose idea was it to enter into a comprehensive  bilateral free trade agreement with the United States?  A. The Americans'. It was first brought up in 1983 by US Ambassador Paul Robinson, but during the election campaign the next  year, Prime Minister Mulroney said, "Free trade is a danger to Canadian sovereignty. You'll hear no more of it from me." Nevertheless,  that same year the US Congress proceeded with The US Trade and  Tariff Act, which granted President Reagan the right to negotiate a  bilateral free trade agreement with Canada. On orders from US  Special Trade Representative Bill Brock, the leadership role in  pushing free trade was then passed to the Business Council on National Issues, a group of extremely powerful US-owned corporations  operating in Canada. Mulroney was brought around and a deal was  reached after a marathon negotiating session on October 3, 1987.  Q. What will Canada gain from free trade?  A. In public, Mulroney and big business supporters of free trade  claim the big gains will be increased trade and jobs, but the actual  size of the expected increases are not large. Even without the Free  Trade Agreement, 80% of Canada's products enter the US tariff-free  and 90% have tariffs of less than 5%. The remaining tariffs would be  gradually reduced over ten years, so the change wouldn't be  noticeable to most people.  Government estimates of the job yield under free trade have  varied wildly and settled on 120,000 jobs over five years. Given that  the government estimates our job supply will naturally increase by  1,320,000 positions without free trade, the impact of free trade on  employment would be minimal. The Economic Council of Canada  estimates it at 1.8% of total employment. The group with the biggest  stake in jobs ��� Canada's labour movement ��� vehemently opposes  the deal.  Q. What about savings on imported goods?  A. One consumer group has estimated an annual saving of approximately $200 per household, but it is false logic because the money  saved comes out of Canadian revenues and our government will  simply have to raise the $1 billion it was getting from import duties  in some other way. The most probable way is through a sweeping  new federal sales tax that could cost the average household ten times  what they save on lower-priced imports.  Q. What about secure access to the US market?  A. Prime Minister Mulroney said he wouldn't sign the deal unless it  freed Canada from protective US trade legislation such as the recent  duty on softwood lumber and the US Omnibus Trade Bill currently  before Congress, but Canadian negotiators failed to achieve any  such security. Article 1902 actually enshrines the Americans' right  to take countervailing action, and the Agreement spells out many  new grounds on which retaliatory action can be based.  Q. Are there any believable Canadian  supporters of free trade?  A. The one Prime Minister Mulroney relies on most strongly in his  speeches is the Economic Council of Canada, but the major ECC  study, Venturing Forth, concluded that gains under the Agreement  are so small Canada should not hesitate to pull out; for instance, if  we failed to win exemption from the US Trade Omnibus Bill currently before Congress. We have now failed to win that exemption.  Among other economists, opinion is divided according to whom  they speak for. Those with a nationalistic or social bent, such as the  Pacific Institute for Economic Policy, tend to be against the deal.  Q. What would Canada lose under the  Agreement?  A. Under Article 904 Canada surrenders control over its energy  supplies and with it any hope of energy self-sufficiency;  - Under Article 409 we surrender control over our mineral  resources;  - Chapters 14 and 15 allow free entry to US workers to compete for  Canadian jobs;  - Chapter 16 opens the door to unrestricted takeover of Canadian  business;  - Chapter 17 allows US banks to operate in Canada without meeting  the same consumer-protection rules as Canadian banks;  - Chapter 13 allows US companies to bid on all Canadian government contracts;  - Chapter 6 agrees to 'harmonize' superior Canadian technical standards with those of the US - a giant step backward for consumer and  environmental protection;  - Article 2005 gives Americans the right to demand compensation  for any support given to Canada's cultural industries, such as  moviemaking, publishing, broadcasting or recording.  - The Big Brother provisions (Articles 1803-4 and 2010-11) give the  US the right to oversee our legislative process and intervene against  "any actual or proposed measure that it considers affects the operation of this Agreement." Technically this would mean the US could  protest any planned or existing feature of medicare, unemployment  insurance, regional development, childcare, etc.  n ���  Q. Mulroney claims our social programs are secure.  Is he right?  A. No. Under the deal, Canada's health care system, Ul, Canada  pensions, family allowance, equalization payments to poor provinces  (BC now receives these), subsidies to industries other than the  petroleum industry, regional development programs, etc., are all  subject to US challenge, either as "unfair trade practices" (yet to be  defined), or under Articles 1803, 1804, 2010 and 2011 (see above).  Mr. Mulroney could have demanded protection for Canada's social  and economic benefits, because he did get protection for continued  massive subsidies to the Canadian oil and gas industry under Article  906, which reads, "Both Parties have agreed to allow existing or  future incentives for oil and gas exploration..." Without a similar exemption clause to save them, social programs will be locked outside  the castle gates when the attack comes.  Q. But wouldn't free trade ultimately bring SOME  prosperity to Canada?  A. Puerto Rico has full economic union with the US and it's one of  the poorest pieces of dirt in the northern hemisphere. Vast regions  of the American south, southwest, and northwest are also much  poorer than any part of Canada. Why should closer economic union  with the US bring prosperity to all Canadians when it hasn't  brought it to all Americans? We tend to think only of the wealthy  people and wealthy states in the US because those are what we are  shown on TV, but we should think also of the other America we  saw through the presidential campaign of Jesse Jackson ��� the  bankrupt farmers, the illiterate urban youth with nothing to turn to  but crime, the California fieldworkers having deformed babies in  unheated shacks, unable to pay for a hospital bed. Even among the  more affluent middle class, medical expenses are the most common  cause of personal bankruptcy in the US today. The US is a society of  winners and losers, with the losers far outnumbering the winners.  This is the society we seek to integrate with, and simple arithmetic  tells us more of us will end up losers than winners.  And bad as things are in the US, they're steadily getting worse.  Since WW II the US has fallen from producing 75% of world GNP to  22%; from being the world's largest creditor nation to being the  largest debtor. As the US economy weakens, the gap between rich  and poor widens.  The truth is, as "near Americans" we will almost certainly fare  much worse than "real Americans". Already the US bleeds off $19  billion a year through its ownership of our industry. As US investment swelled under free trade, this outflow of profits, jobs, and  power would turn to a flood, leaving us sharecroppers in what was  once our own land.  Q. Couldn't Canada pull out on six months notice if  the deal soured?  A. Prime Minister Mulroney has found himself resorting to this  argument increasingly during the current election campaign, but at  the same time he's been saying that it's already too late for Ed Broadbent or John Turner to tear the Agreement up without putting our  whole relationship with the US at risk. Two or three or ten years  down the road, it would be even more difficult to tear the deal up,  Another problem is that a massive takeover of key Canadian companies would begin as soon as the deal went into effect. In Ontario  the financial industry passed into American hands almost overnight  when foreign ownership restrictions were lifted last year and under  free trade the same thing would happen to Canadian business in  general. Canada already tolerates a higher degree of foreign ownership than any other industrialized nation, and after even a few years  of free trade US ownership might well have increased to such an extent we would no longer have sufficient control over our own  economic affairs to cancel the Agreement.  Q. If the deal's so bad, why do so many smart people  want it?  A. If you look closely at the free trade lobby I believe you will find it  is made up mainly of these three elements:  1. Big winners in Canadian life who want to replace the Canadian  welfare state with an American-style winners-and-losers system;  2. Politicians of the right who support the winners-and-losers  strategy;  3. Camp followers of the above who may or may not understand the  grand strategy.  The political right knows the Canadian public won't support a  direct Thatcher-style attack on their social system so they hope to  achieve the same result by 'harmonizing' Canada with the American  system in the name of increased prosperity. The promise of prosperity has taken in a good many, but by the time they realize their  mistake it may be too late to reverse the process.

Sometimes  they can't read, spell, do math  or they have visual-motor  weaknesses.  They tend to see themselves  as different.

"It is frustrating for these  kids," said Skelcher, "to day  after day sit in classes that teach  them what they already know.  They get a clear picture of what  school is all about and what  learning is all about, because  they do not end up learning in  school."  Skelcher stressed gifted  students need not just enriched  programs, but programs individually tailored to their  needs. She said it is important  to identify these students early  and help them to realize their  potential.  But identification is not  always easy. It involves the cooperation of parents and  teachers, as well as a  sophisticated testing program.  Gifted students, conscious of  being different, will often suppress or hide their ability. So  there is a strong need for support.  They need to have lots of  contact with their intellectual  peers and much opportunity for  social contact.  "It's wonderful to see what  happens to a kid," said  Skelcher, "when he or she is put  into a gifted class. They finally  realize their 'weirdness' is a  positive thing.  "These kids need to be free to  learn. They need to know they  have the skills to learn," she  said.  Skelcher explained that gifted  students need more time with  concepts, generalizations and  theories, but less time with  facts. For them, the process of  learning involves thinking and  research skills that enable them  to acquire the information they  need.  In discussing the current  status of the Gifted Program in  School District 46, Skelcher told  the board that because there is  now no co-ordinator of the program in the district, there is a  danger it would gradually fall  apart.  She said the handbook could  be implemented with the current  level of funding. She asked the  board to make a commitment to  continue the work that had  already been begun.  "We are comfortable as a  society," said Skelcher, "in  providing support to the handicapped and will adjust to their  differences. Yet we are not comfortable in making big adjustments for kids who are seen  as 'better than' regular kids.  "What we need to be looking  at is not that they are 'better  than', but that they are different  kinds of learners. When we look  at not supporting them we are  looking at lots of problems,  -and so are they.  "They need to know they  have something they can be proud of, and not be embarrassed  about, and try to hide. We need  to make it possible for them to  not separate school and learning, so they don't think that  learning is something they do  somewhere else, - if someone  gives them the opportunity.'

"Since the filming of Mc-  Cabe and Mrs. Miller in 1970,  Sechelt has a reputation as an  excellent location for feature  and television films," Mr.  Veitch said.  "The completion of North  Shore Studios will significantly  improve B.C.'s film-making  capacity with corresponding increase in interest in known loca  tions such as Sechelt."  The $20 million, 205,000  square foot North Shore complex is being built on 13.5 acres  by Cannell Films of Canada  and the Comweb Entertainment  Corporation of Toronto. The  B.C. Government loaned $4.3  million toward the project  which will create up to 800  direct jobs.  The complex will house seven  large sound stages and complete  production services.  Stephen J. Cannell, Chairman of Cannell Films, recently  described it as "far superior to  other studios of its type and size  anywhere in the world from  both an aesthetic and functional  level."  Mr. Veitch pointed out that  B.C.'s movie and television production industry is a success  story mainly as a result of B.C.  Government encouragement,  growing from $40 million a year  in 1979 to $200 million in 1987  and still expanding steadily.  "Today, at any given time in  B.C., there are up to 15 different movies and television  series in production," the  minister said.  Don't Get on  That Ferry!

Perhaps presaging the two  later polls that showed the two  parties neck and neck, candidate Rabu held his ground in  spite of being the target of by  far the most critical questions  from the audience of about 150  people. Rabu finished up the  session as the last to speak.  He gamely told the critical  audience they could vote for incumbent NDP candidate Ray  Skelly again and keep getting  nothing for the riding as they  had in the last nine years of  Skelly representation, or they  could vote for him (Rabu) who  as a member of the governing  party could start getting some  benefits for the Sunshine Coast.  Rabu was the last to speak  because he became the first  speaker of the evening in the  draw conducted among the candidates by Labour Council  moderator Bill Peterson.  The questions of the evening  included such topics as Senate  reform, weapons testing, several  on submarines, several on child  care, replacement of tariff  revenues under free trade, inadequate voter lists, where candidates live, and free trade.  Rabu started off saying that  after 15 all-candidate meetings  he'd become aware this would  be the most important federal  election in Canadian history,  because the future would depend on it. He said the future  depends on the free trade agreement because three million jobs  are in jeopardy if it is blocked.  Rabu said the agreement will  eliminate U.S. protectionist action harmful to Canada, action  of the type seen in the past in  the cases of shingles and shakes,  and of softwood lumber. He  noted the Canadian Labour  Council recently came out and  said the agreement isn't to be  feared for reasons of a threat to  social services or Canadian  water resources.  "It's (the agreement) a great  opportunity for us. We're the  only country in the world  without such a trade agreement  with a neighbour. The future of  our children and grandchildren  depends upon it," said Tory  candidate Rabu.  The NDP's Skelly, the next  speaker, slammed the free trade  agreement as "an insane and  wrong policy, a betrayal of the  country. For example, when it  came to energy under the agreement, Canada could never again  have national policies or prices  for energy," he said.  "Under the free trade agreement we are diminishing our  capacity to exist as Canadians,"  Skelly said.  Next, Communist candidate  Nick Chemoff agreed this was  Canada's most important election ever. This was because the  voters must decide whether or  not Canada remains as in in  dependent country or becomes  merely an appendage of the  American empire.  "But more important is the  question of man's continued existence on earth," said Cher-  noff.  John Krell of the Christian  Heritage Party said his party  goes by basic Biblical values and  guidelines established by God.  It would apply time-tested and  proven principles to today's  issues.  Dentist Krell said the main  crucial issue of the election is  the integrity of the governing  representatives. "A vote for any  other party is a vote for the  destruction of this country," he  said.  Dodd Pellant, candidate for  the Western Reformers, said the  West hasn't enjoyed fair treatment from either the recent  Mulroney or Trudeau governments, so constitutional changes  are needed. He said the free  trade agreement is a good start,  but Mulroney has failed to communicate its value.  The Reformers are more concerned about the threat of U.S.  protectionism than of the bad  effects free trade would have on  Canada. "We need fair trade  within Canada, the same as we  need it with the U.S.," he said.  Reformer Pellant called for  formation of a Triple E Senate,  something which would serve as  a regional fairness test.  Liberal candidate Alan Warnke spoke next, saying he was  worried by the attitude of the  PC government.

Accordingly,  former electrician Cox secured a  job at the store in that capacity.  It took him little time to acquire  detailed information about the  25 American District Telegraph  alarms with which the store was  equipped.  Meanwhile Lou took a quick  trip to Toledo, the safecrackers'  refuge. His mission was to conscript a couple of experienced  men to augment the gang. A  few days later he returned with  his hand-picked recruits. Herb  found himself in agreement  with his brother's choices.  George 'Doc' Redding was a  slight man in his early forties.

Doc had an almost encyclopedic  knowledge of safes and the  various means of cracking  them. In addition, Lou was  quick to inform Herb, he was  one of the best casers in the  business. "When Doc gets  through checking out a score,"  he laughed, he can give you the  layout of a building down to the  last knothole."  The second man boasted a  legitimate doctorate. He was  Dr. David de la Pena, tall and  genteel in appearance, the black  sheep scion of a distinguished  family. De la Pena, a graduate  chemist and an expert on the  subject of nitroglycerine, was  anxious to have a look at Herb's  formula. A sensitive, fastidious  man, he did not wish to be present at the actual commission of  crimes but vowed to do his full  share in other ways.  There were now five  members in Herb Wilson's  fledgling gang.  Preparations for the first big  knockover continued. De la  Pena and Doc Redding began  visiting Dunn and Fraser every  day or so, making small purchases and inquiring at the  cashier's office about various  fictitious employees. In this  manner they added to the growing fund of data about the inner  workings of the place.  It fell to Lou to check on  Muir, the night watchman. He  visited Muir's house claiming to  be a researcher for the Detroit  City Directory. The watchman,  a widower, was lonely and anxious to talk. When Lou innocently proferred the fiction  that his father had also been a  watchman the elderly man really opened up.  While Lou listened attentively  Muir outlined his nightly  routine in great detail. He made  his rounds every hour on the  half hour, ringing in from each  of the 25 stations. Every hour  on the hour a beat patrolman  named Powers checked in to see  that all was in order and phoned  a report to his sergeant. Lou  jotted down all this information  on his simulated forms. "Well,  thanks," he said finally. "Hope  I haven't taken up too much of  your time."  "By no means," declared the  unsuspecting watchman, obviously glad of the company.  "Glad to be of help. Perhaps  we'll meet again sometime."  "A lot sooner than you imagine, oldtimer," thought Lou  as he took his leave.  To be continued...

The elements  describe a certain kind of energy  that predominates each triplici-  ty.  The earth signs (Taurus,  Virgo and Capricorn) tend to  have an ability to handle matters that relate to physical existence (down to earth things).  Water signs (Cancer, Scorpio  and Pisces) generally have an  emotional theme. Air signs  (Gemini, Libra and Aquarius)  relate to the mental and Tire  signs. (Aries, Leo and Sagittarius) deal with intense energy.  Each Sun sign, therefore, encompasses an essential quality  of the element category that it  falls into, and each has things to  learn about handling those  energies in positive and negative  ways.  People born when the Sun  was in a Are sign, or when other  personal planets like Moon,  Mercury, Venus and Mars, were  in those signs, are challenged to  learn how to handle raw energy  and drive. While Sagittarians,  Arians, and Leos will each have  their own unique way of exploring that fire energy, each may  fall prey to a phenomena called  'adrenalin addiction'.  People who suffer from this  affliction seem to always be in a  state of crisis or on their way  there. It's a result of an unconscious, but very powerful  need to be constantly in a state  of high stimulation.  People who handle this need  in a healthy way, constantly set  challenges for themselves,  whether it's building up a  business from scratch, remodelling a house, or climbing a  mountain.

Fast for  peace  Members of the Sunshine  Coast Peace Committee  celebrated Remembrance Day  by fasting on Friday. The fast  was held in the new park across  from the Cenotaph in Sechelt  from 10 am to 6 pm.  Monies that would have been  spent on meals were sent to End  The Arms Race (EAR), the  organization that coordinates  the annual Vancouver Walk for  Peace.  The Peace Committee now  plans to present a video of Dr,  Helen Caldicott addressing the  Canadian Peace Alliance. This  video will be shown at 7 pm at  Sechelt Elementary on Thursday, November 17.  As a physician, Dr. Caldicott  played a key role in awakening  the public to the threat of  nuclear war and in alerting the  public worldwide to the present  hazards of industrial and  military nuclear pollution.  In the words of Denise  Lagasse who has been fasting  weekends to promote public  awareness on this issue during  the federal election campaign:  "This is an important film for  all voters who wish to be informed on the arms race and  foreign policy." i  Everyone is welcome to at-   [  tend the video showing.

But a lot of people who had  less than perfect childhoods,  may have developed a habit of  drawing crisis situations to  them, which then allows the  adrenalin to kick in.  This isn't in any way, shape  or form, a conscious process.  So it can be difficult to see it in  yourself.  But one sure sign is if you  find yourself, when things are  going well, suddenly feeling  depressed, or restless, irritable  or anxious, for no apparent  reason. What's happening is  that when things are smooth,  your adrenalin level has dropped to normal, and to you that  feels uncomfortable.  If you catch yourself exhibiting these signs of adrenalin  addiction, you need to take  some conscious control of the  situation. On a physical level,  you should make it a lifelong  habit to keep your diet healthy,  with lots of B vitamin foods, so  that your struggle with your  own nervous system is minimized.  Physical expression of energy  becomes very important for you  and getting yourself into some  kind of recreation of that nature  is fundamental to your emotional health.  Finally, it's important to consciously set healthy challenges  for yourself so the energy you  have can be directed constructively.  When you have the courage  to look at the ways that you  sabotage yourself, you can take  care of the underlying needs in  much more fulfilling ways  The gypsy moth pest has a  voracious appetite, is most  destructive, and can defoliate  deciduous trees, shrubs, and  some crops. They lay their eggs  on a tree, rock, or any article  left out of doors.  An inspection of sheltered  areas under cars and trailers and  camping equipment if you've  been travelling out of the province, followed by steamed car  wash or spray with insecticidal  soap, will help eradicate this  pest which does so much costly  damage.  Fall is our best time to plant  garlic, it being the hardiest of  plants, naturally healthy and  free of diseases. Cloves planted  now 1 r. inches deep mature in  summer or fall next year.  Garlic has an ancient honourable tradition, as a cure-all, or  even improvement for many  sicknesses.  You are reminded to cover  your parsley, which will serve as  a good winter supply, even  through heavy frost.

Then, life: lights reflected off a small lake, shining warmly  through windows of a building, inviting us to pull off the  road and come inside Gib Baal's Ruby Lake Restaurant.  I was reminded of a long-ago grandmother's kitchen. A fat  pumpkin squatted by the rear entrance, and a box of Mcintosh apples sat by the front door, lending a sweet, crisp scent  to the large, open dining area. An antique buffet displayed  another pumpkin, and I noticed Gib's collection of antique  metal toy cars and heavy equipment, fastened to heavy  rafters.  You wouldn't wolf down a quick meal at your grandmother's house, so we decided on a leisurely dinner, beginning with the Combo Basket appetizer. After enjoying deep-  fried zucchini and chicken pieces with a rich dip, our waitress  encouraged us to help ourselves to the salad bar, a feature  that included all the regular fare (attractively displayed on  crushed ice) as well as a couple of creative treats such as peas  and carrots with a tangy dill dressing.  Other diners contributed to the atmosphere as much as did  the setting. A man (obviously a regular) traded quips with  both Gib and our waitress, a table of seasoned loggers quietly  shared memories of the old days, and a couple lingered after  their meal, admiring the mixture of antiques, art deco, and  knick-knacks.  Our entrees arrived. My friend happily devoured a New  York steak and I thoroughly enjoyed my Red Snapper, both  prepared to perfection by Gib and accompanied by scalloped  potatoes, luscious baked pumpkin, and a cool slice of sweet  melon.  Our waitress chided one of the loggers for not eating all of  his vegetables, tempted us with home-made butter tarts, and  brought us made-to-order special coffees to warm us for the  trip back home.  Reluctantly, we left, but we'll make that trip back in time  again soon, because that warm, casual comfort will be hard  to forget and we know that the invitation is sincere.

Putting in ice  by Harold  The players in the swish and  roaring game work to hone their  curling skills day after day. But  do they ever give a thought to  the skills and techniques that go  into making the ice they play  on?  Probably not very often! But  nonetheless there is a lot more  than meets the eye to the  preparation of that long, narrow, frozen battlefield for the  curler.  John McKerracher, manager-  icemaker at Gibsons Winter  Club, just recently finished  three weeks of the endless and  painstaking hard, long cold  hours it takes to achieve that  beautiful playing surface that  attracts more participants than  any other sport in the nation.  "You can either win it, or  lose it. It's very tricky," says  McKerracher.  His experience before in Vancouver was in a curling rink  with a sand bottom. Here the  base is concrete, which he says  is much nicer to put ice on and  involves less maintenance.  To start, the ice dividers,  hack cups and centre pins are  put down on the conrete. Then  a hose is used to put down what  will be the first of an endless  number of light seal sprays.  This first film of ice must be  very thin. When that is in place,  a spray with larger drops can  follow to thicken the ice.  After a one-eighth inch  thickness is almost attained,  light open hose floods are  started to level the surface.  Once the ice is level, a coat of  white ice paint is started over all  the playing sheets. It's sprayed  on. A light coat of water then  seals off the paint.  Have in mind that all these  layers involve many hours of  work, as much as 20 hours in a  day when there are two men as  here. Larger crews, of course,  could move faster.  Next lines are scribed on the  ice where the house circles are  going. Some rinks use plastic  circles, but this year here they  were handpainted.  Then comes another seal coat  of ice to protect the circle paint.  This is so if anybody steps on it  they won't track it all over the  place, as too often happens.  The heat of someone's feet will  melt the ice paint.  "I have seen red and blue  footsteps all over the rink at this  stage," says the local icemaker.  Next come the lines for the  centre, T and hog lines. Then  there have to be three or four  seal coats on everything.  Next come open hose floods  to level the ice again. The  icemaker takes a big hose and  walks back and forth on each  sheet with a water stream.  Although he moves quite  fast, each time it takes a bit  longer. Work sometimes goes  from 8 am one day to 1 am the  next. A work party could do it  in about 16 hours.  Now comes the fun part, getting the ice ready for play. This  is called pebbling.  The device used is a can with  a hose connected at the bottom  to a flat spray head the size of a  child's hand. The icemaker  starts back and forth very slow-  Gibsons  waits for  bike plans  Gibsons council is going to  wait for Sunshine Coast  Regional District planners to  suggest their proposed bicycle  routes before making plans for  any action in the town.  Town Planner Rob Buchan  told the planning committee the  night of November 8 that a letter on the bicycle routes question had come from the SCRD.  "It's up to regional district to  describe what will be the chosen  routes. A study was done in the  1970s. These likely will be the  routes," said Planner Buchan.  The arteries in Gibsons likely  to be designated as bicycle  routes, according to the maps,  are Marine Drive, Gower Point  Road and Highway 101.  GIBSONS  LANES  886-2086  ly to build a pebble surface.  This is done three or four times.  After the pebble is down,  one-inch strips of plastic about  one-quarter inch thick are set  down in the rock houses. The  rocks are set on them to cool for  24 hours.  Without the plastic strips the  rocks would melt their way  almost out of sight in the ice.  While the rocks cool, the  metal cups are removed from  the hacks which have the  players' pushoffs. The little  ridges that occur in the hack  areas are shaved off.  After the 24 hours the rocks  are set on the ice. The plastic  strips are taken up.  Then comes the big event. It's  time to break the ice!  The easiest way to do this is  to put five or six of the  40-pound curling rocks on the  ice. Then take a sheepskin and  push the rocks up and down  over the ice about four times.  Then it's ready for play.  Icemaker McKerracher  points out it's highly important  not to wear street shoes while  playing. This gets grit on the ice  and makes footprints.  "Clean ice makss better curling and saves the life of the  rocks," he says. He's especially  grateful, he added, to all the  people at the club who came out  to help put the ice in.  On the  Rocks  by Terry Connor  Now that all the hunters are  back from their hunting trips,  we should be in for some serious  curling.  A vote of thanks to Faye  Hansen in raising over $400  from the Heart-a-Thon curling  bonspiel.  The men's open bonspiel  starts on Friday, November 18  and we are hoping for 32 rinks.

So said Peter  Bentley, chairman and chief executive officer on behalf of the  company directors in an interim  third quarter report to  shareholders.  The principal factors contributing to the favourable 1988  results were higher prices and  Arm demand for pulp and  paper products. These more  than offset the negative effects  of the strong Canadian dollar  and weaker lumber markets, as  well as the reduction in reported  income resulting from the formation of Howe Sound Pulp  and Paper Limited of Port  Mellon, said Chairman Bentley.  "In the third quarter, earnings were affected by lower  lumber production resulting  from sawmill construction work  and the phasing in of new  equipment. Also, pulp and  paper results for the quarter  were reduced by scheduled  downtime for maintenance.  "Income before extraordinary items for the period was  $22.5 million, or $.93 per share  after preferred dividends, compared with last year's all-time  quarterly record of $31.1  . million or $1.30 per share," said  the third quarter report.  "Including an extraordinary  item of $9.4 million resulting  from the reorganization of Canfor U.S.A. Corporation, net income for the third quarter was  $31.9, or $1.33 per share.  "For the year to date, net income extraordinary items was  $159 million, or $6.81 per share  after preferred dividends, compared with $78.4 million, or  $3.26 per share, for the corresponding period in 1987. Net  income for 1988 includes the extraordinary item referred to  above, as well as the second  quarter extraordinary gain  resulting from the formation of  Howe Sound Pulp and Paper  Limited.  "The company equity accounts for its 50 per cent interest  in Howe Sound Pulp and Paper  Limited and year to date earnings therefore include a $14  million equity share in the net  income of the new enterprise.  As a further result of equity accounting, as well as the late  1987 discontinuation of Canfor  U.S.A. 's distribution business,  1988 third quarter and year to  date net sales decreased to  $268.9 million and $843.5  million, respectively, compared  with $318.8 million and $928  million for the corresponding  1987 periods," said the report.  "Spending  on   the  record  1988 capital program proceeded  at a brisk pace during the  quarter with two major sawmill  projects being completed. A  high level of activity on capital  projects will continue for the  balance of the year and another  substantial capital program is  being planned for 1989.  "The company continued to  strengthen its financial position  during the quarter, improving  the ratio of debt to equity .to  21:79 at September 30, compared with 23:77 at mid-year.  "The directors declared a  semi-annual dividend of 30  cents per share payable on  December 31, 1988, to shareholders of record on Decmber  15, 1988. This diviJend brings  the 1988 total payment to 55  cents per share, compared with  the 1987 total of 35 cents per  share.  "For the fourth quarter,  lumber markets are not expected to show any meaningful  improvement but the markets  for pulp and sack kraft paper  should remain very strong in  1989. World producer pulp inventories continue at low levels,  and the pulp price increased in  the United States in October,  raising prices there to the same  level as in other major markets.  Barring further significant appreciation of the Canadian  dollar, the company's overall  outlook remains favourable for  the balance of the year and  beyond," said the report.  Museum  notes  by Tam Johnson  The Elphinstone Pioneer  Museum held its annual meeting  on October 26 in the museum.  A slate of officers recommended by the president were approved at the meeting. These  were Tam Johnson, President;  Nora Hill, Vice-President; Jennifer Hopkins, Treasurer; Joan  Graham, Secretary; and Lilian  Kunstler, Membership Secretary.  The president reported that  the Les Peterson Display had  been largely completed in 1988  and included all of the artifacts  donated by Les. In addition, excerpts from his manuscript on  the myths and language of the  Sechelt Indian Band were  highlighted. A large mural  painted in oils by Jessie Morrison depicting a war party  returning in their war canoes  with the captured slaves was  hung in the display. The display  was funded by the Town of  Gibsons.  Plans for 1989 included the  design and construction of an  agricultural exhibit honouring  the Wyngaert family. Most of  the large collection of farm  equipment in the museum was  donated by Frank Wyngaert.  Frank also played a major part  in the founding and subsequent  development of the museum.  The Town of Gibsons will be  asked to include funding for  this display in their budget.  The museum was kept open  by two students, Jennifer  Hopkins and Eileen McKibbin,  from May to mid-September.  This was funded by the Federal  Challenge '88 project and the  museum.  -Bob Casselman-  Twenty Years Experience  in Fish Taxidermy  Coast News, November 14,1988  WE'VE GOT  NOTHING TO HIDE  Steve Christian  Certified Wood Stove Technician  is pleased to announce that  A.C.

"We will not allow a (financial)  minority that does not understand, provoke us against our  interests.  "I'm going to stand up for  my rights as a Canadian and I  don't like what has happened in  the last few days (i.e. the  pressures on the electorate from  falling stock prices and rising in  terest rates). The voters need to  stand up too," said the Grit  candidate.  The Greer, Party's candidate  Michael Conway-Brown said  corporate interests are controlling the economic environment,  he described this as the  economics of extinction.  "We need an economic  system based on environmental  and ecological considerations  sustainable in the long run,"  said the Green candidate.  In summing up he said,  "Vote for everyone but the  Tory. You can vote Green.  Nobody will see you do it there  in the voting booth. So it's all  right to vote for a fringe party."

The judge's decision  Between:   Anne   Langdon,  Plaintiff  And:  Glassford Press Ltd. and John  Burnside, Defendants  M.F. Welsh For the Plaintiff  F.D. Sutherland For the Defendants  Heard at Vancouver: October  3-7, 1988.  The plaintiff claims damages  for having been defamed in articles authored by the defendant  Burnside and published in a  newspaper of the defendant  company. In brief he charged  the plaintiff, an alderman of the  District of Sechelt, was in conflict of interest, lobbied and  misinformed her District Council. One of the articles charged  that the misinforming and the  lobbying was "systematic". The  defendants have admitted that  that assertion was in fact  defamatory. They offered  amends in the sum of $5,000  plus $2,000 costs for that admitted defamation. But the defendants have held to the assertion  that, though not systematic, the  plaintiff did misinform and did  lobby. For the reasons which  follow I hold that the plaintiff  did not misinform but that she  did lobby.  Misinformation  By way of justification for  this slur, counsel for the defendants contend that the criticism  by the plaintiff of the Economic  Development Committee of the  Regional District (led by Burnside), on the grounds of  escalating costs, proliferation of  committees and ineffectiveness  of the program generally was  misconceived. That was highly  arguable. Other honest people  such as Mayor Koch shared the  plaintiff's views or she shared  theirs. She had good reason to  be stung by this unjustified  public insult. The statement of  her considered conclusions  could not be characterized as  misinformation.  Lobbying and Conflict of Interest  The allegation is that in  August, 1986 the plaintiff as  alderman lobbied the Sechelt  Council, that is to say that she  attempted to influence council  in her own interest. I believe  that criticism was justified. It  calls for an examination not only of the position to which the  plaintiff was appointed but as  well her association with a man  by the name of Oddvin Vedo.  First as to Vedo. Until about  November, 1985 he had been  employed by the Sunshine  Coast Regional District as Community Development Commissioner. At that time he procured  from the Provincial Government a grant of $150,000 to  conduct a program called Aqua  West. One purpose was to  capitalize on the influx of  tourists expected from Expo  '86. Tourists and others were  expected to be interested in the  development and operation of  fish farms. I note parenthetically that the tourists did not  materialize.  Aqua West was operated as  an emanation of the Sunshine  Coast Tourism Association.  Vedo oversaw the project as Executive Director. He received  and disposed of the proceeds of  the grant.  Vedo had plans to personally  exploit the Aqua West promotion. An article published in the  Vancouver Sun on June 9,1986  reveals some of the details.  At the same time that the  plaintiff was an alderman on  the Sechelt Council, she was as  well employed by the Sunshine  Coast Tourism Association as  manager. Vedo appointed her  project co-ordinator of Aqua  West. She was paid a significant  salary.  By August, 1988 the end of  Aqua West was in sight. The  grant monies had long since run  out. Vedo had incorporated a  company through which he  hoped he would in effect resume  the economic development  responsibilities. He challenged  the existing organization.  The Regional District had  reposed responsibility for the  economic betterment of the  Sunshine Coast to the  Economic Development Committee. Burnside was one of the  moving forces behind the Committee. He had been instrumental in hiring Irene Lugsdin as  Community Development Officer to replace Vedo on the lat-  ter's retirement as commissioner.  Several decisions of the  Sechelt Council led up to the articles of which the plaintiff  complains. The first was a  resolution of council on May  21, 1986 that "the ViUage of  Sechelt notify the SCRD of its  wish to opt out of the Economic  Development function for  1987". I digress to say that at  that same meeting on a motion  by the plaintiff the Community  Development Officer was asked  to come before a meeting of  Gibsons and Sechelt Council  "to fully outline the committee  structures of the EDC etc." (I  sense that this latter resolution  was designed at least in part to  put the Community Development Officer in her place).  Then on August 6, 1986 the  Sechelt Council resolved "that  the District of Sechelt stay in the  EDC function of the SCRD for  the balance of 1986". This  resolution was opposed by the  plaintiff. I have no doubt that  she reported the decision to  Vedo, her superior.  The very next day a meeting  of the combined Councils of  Gibsons and Sechelt took place.  The plaintiff acted as Vedo's  emissary to deliver to the  meeting a letter from Vedo containing a virulent attack on the  EDC. He said in part:  The existing EDC function is  a farce, the mainly self appointed bodies with self serving interest. It is contradictory to bylaw 228 and its letters patent. It should be  dissolved.  Without any further comments, I will include the  Draft for Discussion Purposes paper submitted  November 4, 1985 to the  EDC. It was never discussed.  The SCRD had months  ahead made up their minds  on the future of EDC.  I have taken the initiative to  duly incorporate a company  called:  Sunshine Coast Economic  Development Corporation  with all documentation in  place and registered through  Russell Crum's office, Gibsons.  I recommend that the shares  should be divided as follows:  SCRD 40%  Gibsons 25%  Sechelt 25%  Sechelt Indian Band 10%  This Economic Development  Corporation or authority  should be controlled to carry  out the function of  Economic Development. As  a corporation it would also  be able to generate funds by  providing services for corporation, private or associations as clients.  You can initiate this now and  carry on even without the  support of the SCRD and  SIB at this time.  I know the Sunshine Coast is  an economic community  from end to end, and as a  professional Economic  Developer, this suggested action is the only way a proper  Economic Development  function can be carried out  on the Coast.  I would be pleased to come  and speak to you at a future  joint meeting, and could also  arrange for speakers who are  active in Economic Development across Canada in situations such as I have sug-  Sincerely,  Oddvin Vedo  Economic Developer.  The   plaintiff  attempts   to  disassociate herself from the letter and the proposal. But I am  compelled to conclude first that  her attitude disclosed that she  knew exactly what Vedo had in  mind  and  second,  that  she  hoped her interest would be  served if she allied herself with  Vedo's plan. Her hopes were  borne out when Vedo later hired  her.  On the following Friday,  August 15, 1966, (whether influenced by the letter, I do not  know) Sechelt Council passed  this resolution:  Moved by Aid. Craig,  seconded by Aid. short that  the Council of the District of  Sechelt adopt the following  resolutions regarding the  EDC function of the SCRD:  'WHEREAS by supplemental Letters Patent  dated April 9th, 1981 the  Sunshine Coast Regional  District was authorized to  establish an Economic  Development Commission;  AND WHEREAS the  Sunshine Coast Regional  District Bylaw No. 228,  adopted on June 11, 1981,  said Commission was  established;  AND WHEREAS by the  Sunshine Coast Regional  District Bylaw No.  228.1,  adopted April 8th, 1982, said  Commission was authorized  to recommend to the Board  that a person be hired as an  Economic Commissioner;  AND WHEREAS the  position of Economic  Development Commissioner  was vacated and not refilled;  AND THEREFORE the  Council of the District of  Sechelt does hereby petition  the Board of the Sunshine  Coast Regional District to be  allowed to opt out of the  Economic Development  function'.  CARRIED  Opposed - Aid. Kolibas  I note at this point that the  plaintiff was fastidious to disqualify herself when matters  concerning Aqua West arose in  council. But she did not do so  where she may have been influenced by her connection with  Vedo.  The response of Burnside was  the publication of the first article complained of as follows:  We must suggest that in her  delivery of an economic proposal from Oddvin Vedo to a  joint meeting of the Gibsons  and Sechelt Councils, Alderman Anne Langdon was in a  direct and unequivocal conflict of interest.  If the municipal councils had  accepted Vedo's proposal,  Langdon herself as his close  business associate is likely to  have drawn lasting personal  employment benefits.  Before the fatherly aldermen  rush to be gallant and protective, be it noted that,  although she had not been  known to attend a single  economic development commission meeting since the  establishment of the function  either as reporter, a  manager, or an alderman,  Alderman Langdon has been  consistently in the forefront  of a move to have Sechelt  drop out.  Couple this was her involvement with a counterproposal from which she  could benefit and her  behaviour is entirely inappropriate and her resignation '  justified.  Mayor Koch told his council they would be watched  very closely. It was a wise  warning   that   Alderman  Langdon ignored.  I think Burnside was correct.  The plaintiff compromised her  objectivity as alderman by being  seen to align herself with Vedo,  her direct superior.  On September 8, 1986 Burnside editorialized as follows:  Locally, we have an alderman in Sechelt who has  made it her study in the 10  months she has held public  office to systematically  misinform her council and to  lobby at those meetings to  which the press is not invited  on behalf of her business  associates. Virtually every effort expended has been expended to ensure her own  personal place at the public  trough.  As I have said, it has not been  shown that the plaintiff misinformed her council at any time.  But I think that by the delivery  of Vedo's letter she could be  said to have been in conflict of  interest and to have assisted in  lobbying her fellow aldermen in  favour of the Vedo proposal.  However, the suggestion that  she did so "systematically", as I  have said, has been admitted by  the defendants to be  defamatory.  The plaintiff further complains of an observation made  in   the  same   issue   of  the  newspaper as follows:  There will be more attacks  no doubt, from that band of  vituperative   malcontents  whose primary purpose in  public utterance is to defend  their   own   government  grants.  There is no doubt that Vedo  could, from Burnside's standpoint, well fit the description of  "vituperative malcontent" as  Vedo's letter demonstrates.  After all, he characterized  Burnside's efforts as a "farce"  and "self serving". And if, as I  believe, the plaintiff aligned  herself with his views she would  fall within the same description.  I fail to understand the  significance of the purpose attributed to them.  Later, on September 15,1986  Burnside offered those observations:  Burnside told the meeting  that he had discussed the role  of the EDC and his role on it  with the executive of the Gib  sons Chamber of Commerce. He stated that it was  his view that the dissension  on the Coast was the work of  very few people, specifically  the members of Aqua West  and the Sunshine Coast  Tourism Association whose  purpose it was to promote  themselves as a business.  Burnside said he felt the present commission had been  saddled with the shortcomings of the previous  commissioner.  The acting-chairman told the  meeting it was his considered  opinion that the Sechelt  Council in particular had  been consistently misinformed about the EDC but that it  was his view that it was not  the role of the commission to  solve the political problems  but to get on with the  business of economic  development.  I conclude that Burnside's  view expressed in the first  paragraph is quite justified and  probably true. However, the  charge of misinformation, I say  again was unfounded.  I come now to what I believe  amount to admissions made on  behalf of the defendant by their  solicitors. Just before trial, on  September 20, 1988 they wrote  the solicitors for the plaintiff on  the following terms:  We have instructions from  the Defendants to extend an  offer of settlement on a 'with  prejudice' basis.

Just off Hawaii's  sandy shoreline and  50 metres down,  visitors are getting a  close-up look at some  of the world's most  beautiful underwater  scenery - all thanks  to the Sub Aquatics  Development  Corporation of  Vancouver, a world  leader in shallow  water submarines.  More than 300,000  tourists, in five countries, have ventured  beneath the waves on board B.C.-made  submarines.  And like the 50 B.C. firms involved in  our expanding subsea industry, Sub  Aquatics has helped make us a leader in  underwater  technology.  From unmanned  submarines to  the world's most  advanced divin;  the 1,000 men a  women involve  our subsea econc  account for annua,  sales of $60 million,  an increase of more  than 35 per cent over  last year, and that's  keeping us on the  shores of tomorrow.

Canada V6H 3V1  Continued from page 23  apologize for, and retract,  certain statements made concerning Ms. Anne Langdon  during her second term as an  alderman on Sechelt Council. The paper and its editor  sincerely regret stating that  Ms. Langdon made it her  study to systematically misinform her council and lobby  on behalf of her business  associates; arising in the heat  of controversy, that statement was inaccurate.  The paper and its editor  acknowledge that, during her  time on the Sunshine Coast,  Anne Langdon was  energetic, hardworking and  loyal both in her dealings  with her employers and her  dealings on the Sechelt  Council and, for the most  part, Mrs. Langdon succeeded in keeping her roles properly distinct.'  The Defendants require a  Release   and   a   Consent  Dismissal of the action in  consideration of this payment and apology.  The admission is curious in  that "system" was admittedly  defamatory the fact is that both  the misinformation and the lobbying contended for an argument were allegedly systematic.  The lobbying turned out to be  just that.  Although I think the admission of defamation did not go  quite far enough, I think the  amount offered was generous.  But perhaps the plaintiff was  justified in going to trial to clear  herself of the imputation of  misleading or misinforming her  council. However, I conclude  she suffered very little damage  from that.  If the reputation of the plaintiff was lowered in the eyes of  the  community,   it   probably  stemmed not from the publications complained of but partly  from her connection with Aqua  West. That venture left a  number of merchants and  others in the community on the  financial lurch. It also stemmed  from the fact that later when the  plaintiff was an ally of Vedo in  private business, she continued  to lobby her council in favour  of the continued development  of fish farms. The success of the  business depended upon the  development. Despite the threat  of this lawsuit, Burnside continued to rail publically against  the continued lobbying and the  obvious conflict.  Mayor Koch seems not to  have been sensitive to the conflict. But he knew it existed. He  said in evidence:  Well, she was pretty well  thought of in the community  but she was alsothoughtof as  an  advocate of the  fishfarming industry, certainly,  because that was the avenue  she took for employment.  And every chance that she  got, obviously, just like a  good employee would, I suppose, she espoused the values  of fish-farming.  And   I   think   Alderman  Kolibas in the witness box exhibited mystification as to why  the plaintiff had sued at all. I  think she thought that the plaintiff had not been hardly done  by.  In the result, I give judgment  in favour of the plaintiff for  $5000 plus the costs of the action to be taxed as between  solicitor and client, or the sum  of $2,000 whichever is the  greater. 1 order as well that the  defendants pay to the plaintiff  court order interest on the sum  of $5000 at 5% from September  1, 1986.

Planner Rob Buchan  reported November 8 to council  Planning Committee there was  no reply to council's letter for  months. But after the ferry  authority was 'reminded in no  uncertain terms', a letter came  back from Bill Bouchard,  manager of marketing and  public relations for B.C. Ferry.  "You know about the late  (Vancouver) ferry sailings during the summer months. These  late sailings are not heavily  utilized except on weekends and  on holidays.  "I believe, however, that based on the appeal of these trips  during busy summer periods  you will see them back again  next year," wrote ferry  manager Bouchard.

SHOP LOCALLY  by Harold Blaine  "Most mobile homeowners  in the Sunshine Coast Regional  District (SCRD) prefer the new  method of being billed directly  for water," SCRD Director Jim  Gurney told the Coast News  after a meeting with 30  homeowners November 8 at the  SCRD offices in Sechelt.  "It was surprising. The consensus at the meeting and from  the letters we had, was to keep  doing it," said Director Gurney.  The only problem with the  new policy still outstanding  seems to be at Bonniebrook  Park near the Chaster Park  waterfront in Area E.  There Gurney is meeting a  group of mobile homeowners  Tuesday evening.  "For them it's a problem between landlord and tenants. We  seem to have become involved  in that dispute," said Gurney,  chairman of the responsible  SCRD committee.  Vj^uality  in Local Government  requires one thing from you...  YOUR VOTE  in British Columbia's upcoming  Municipal Elections  NOVEMBER 19,1988  i��jfl& Hon. Rita M. Johnston British,.        I  Before 1987 water for mobile  homes went through a single  meter at each park. These  residents, therefore, weren't  paying their fair share of water  system costs.  The SCRD switched to a rate  of 75 per cent of that for an  average house per mobile home  pad. This was a 100 per cent increase and the bills went to the  park owners.  This was a slow procedure  and wasn't working well. So  this year, at the suggestion of  the mobile homeowners, the  bills were sent directly to the  owner of each mobile home,  said Gurney.  The homeowners now knew  what their bill was. This impressed them. They want the  SCRD to keep doing it so the  bills won't be used as an excuse  for rent increases, he said.  "I don't see that there is a big  problem. There just needs to be  some explanation," said SCRD  Director Gurney.  service that operates scheduled  trips to and from Langdale terminals into the Gibsons area.  "Also there would be a request from Gambier customers  as well," wrote Bouchard.  Council had asked to have the  island ferry also stop at the  wharf in Gibsons.  "Expanding our service area  would affect our service for the  passengers travelling on the  Langdale ferry. It would in-  convenience these passengers,  our primary reason for connecting at Langdale," said  Bouchard.  "The convenience of using  Langdale is very evident. Island  residents can park in our lot and  use their vehicles to shop in upper Gibsons, where most shopping is carried out."  "The additional running time  of the vessel would increase  costs...," said Bouchard.  spefr  Pre-Christmas  Special:  SAVE $30 v^-chriSt^s  on a 6 WEEK       ^^    ^'  PACKAGE     <A  ���Don't Let Another-  Week Go By  Our dieters lose an average of  17 to 25 lbs. in just six weeks.

Letters to the Editor  Catch 16 cares about health concerns  Editor:  CATCH-16 is a newly-  formed group that is non-  political and non-profit. Our title is an acronym for our aims:  Concerned About Total Coast  Health.  There are 16 of us (ranging  from health representatives to  aldermen), all concerned  citizens.  We first met at a health  seminar September 8-9. We  have since met twice more to  formulate action plans for better Coast community health.  We have drawn up three let  ters which we sent to the  minister of highways, asking for  better ferry service and better  roads; to the minister of health  re better mental health facilities.  The third went to Rita Johnson,  again about better roads.  We would appreciate all  three, or even one of our letters  being printed in your paper. If  any reader would like a free  copy of any, or all three letters,  so that they too could send it to  the Parliament Buildings, we  would be happy to oblige.  Telephone 885-7817.  (One letter is as follows.  -Editor)  Dear Mr. Dueck:  I am writing to express concern regarding the lack of mental health resources on the lower  Sunshine Coast (Port Mellon  -Egmont).  With the exception of a small  out-patient mental health clinic  in Sechelt, no other services exist.  That is, we don't have: a full-  time psychiatrist; boarding  home or halfway house;  hospital-based psychiatric unit  for individuals suffering from  acute or chronic psychiatric  problems.  I might add that the upper  Sunshine Coast (Powell River)  has all the above resources!  Moreoever, we lack vocational  rehabilitation services.  Currently, individuals requiring ihese services travel to Vancouver, which is costly both in  time and money.  I look forward to hearing  from you in the near future.  David C.

V7S 1V8, 922-3087  Siddon's statement seen alarming  Editor:  I have read with alarm the  statements made by Fisheries  Minister Tom Siddon in which  he said:  "The objective of free trade  is to make Canadian industries  competitive. We have to stop  sheltering our industries...and  enable them to produce more  goods at the same cost. More  competitive industries mean  lower consumer prices."  Mr. Siddon went on to say  that Canada's social programs  are not at risk.  Surely any sensible person  who analyzes these statements  can see it will be impossible for  Canadian industries to compete  with American and still pay  their share of social welfare.  Our industries would be competing with companies paying  lower wages, less taxes, and no  M.S.A. etc. Indeed, they would  compete with firms moving to  the southern states, where  wages are half that paid in the  north and where nineteenth-  century conditions prevail.  They would even have to  compete with companies that  are shifting their labour intensive operations to the Mexican  "maquiladora" industrial belt  where wages are $25 per week  and worker protections nil.  The key to the success of the  European Economic Community has been a determination to  avoid destructive competition  by   first   establishing  similar  Work Wanted  Customer Sewing  Call 886-4553  #47  Housecleanlng service, reliable &  experienced with rels. avail.

Hall  On the library dilemma  Editor:  I would like to know why the  library was not informed that  the recommendations of the  1987 Feeney Report were not  implemented and why they were  not implemented? How can  Mayor Strom express surprise  that the library was in financial  difficulties if she was present at  the meeting in Mayor Koch's  office where it was decided to  not implement the report's  recommendations?  Could she not have at least  informed the library association  of the decision so it could have  considered other options to ensure the library's future? Also,  if the library is Lilian Kunstler's  responsibility, is it not also her  responsibility to inform the  librarian and the board of directors of any decisions that may  affect the library?  I would like to see the library  receive more funding from the  SCRD and the Town of Gibsons on a continuing basis, so  this dilemma need not happen  again. Maybe if the town council spent more time taking care  of existing organizations and  responsibilities, this would not  have happened.  I also feel the library could increase its membership rates,  from $2 a year to $5 a year,  although that would just be a  drop in a bucket. But many  drops would fill it, wouldn't  they?

GIBSONS        ^c.Tc���    M6 2BM  Parks are irreplacable  Mtor:  The argument used by those  who wish park land to be sold  to the golf course, centres on  the number of people who  would play golf, compared to  French immersion  Editor:  We are writing to express  concern regarding the remarks  about French Immersion made  in the November 7 edition of the  Coast News by school board  trustee candidate Mary Bittroff.  One of the conclusions of the  1987 provincial French Immersion assessments was "that immersion students consistently  achieved as well as or better  than regular English program  students in English reading,  mathematics and science."  Extra funds for the extra  resources needed for French Immersion are provided by the  federal government so school  resources are not 'split', as  claimed.  Whatever the problems encountered in Delta, we urge candidate Bittroff to round out her  knowledge about French Immersion before applying her  prejudices to our school district.  Christopher Akehurst,  Sandy & Terry McBride,  Allison Payne, Sue Lehman,  Laara Dalen  More on free trade  those who use the park. If 'concentration of use' arguments for  competing groups were used in  the Stanley Park area, it would  certainly not be a park now.  There are a multitude of  minority interests capable of using lands in a concentrated  manner; many more, if vying  industrial, mineral-rights, logging interests and real estate are  included. If such arguments  were valid, all park land would  be swallowed up.  Many people enjoy Cliff  Gilker Park; I personally don't  like the idea of adding baseball  and recreational facilities to the  area, either. Perhaps there never  are enough areas available for  such activity, but they certainly  outnumber quiet sylvan public  parks of such quality as Cliff  Gilker Park.  Croft Warn  If we sell it, we Guarantee it.  OOD"/ 5)t I For Appointment  5633 Wharl Rd.,  Sechelt  Editor:  This is my opinion on 'Winners' and the 'Free Trade'  issues.  A few years ago we had the  Bill Bennett socreds who spent  $1.4 billion on the Cheekeye  Dunsmuir powerline.  Do people remember those  who tried to stop the bulldozers? That line is dead, obsolete and in debt, and adds to  the $8 billion debt of B.C.  Hydro and the $17.5 billion  debt of the province.  That's what we got from the  winner of those days.

Dear Mr. Vander Zalm:  The Executive of the Granthams Landing Property  Owners Association held a  special meeting today, to discuss  the Restructuring Study being  carried out by the Town of Gibsons and the Municipal Affairs  Ministry, involving Area "F",  of the Sunshine Coast Regional  District.  It was duly moved and passed  that the following letter be sent  to you. There have been several  letters, and a petition with over  2,000 signatures, sent to the  Minister, Rita Johnson, but  there appears to be lack of consideration for the citizens of this  area, and their requests.  It has been deemed that the  act of proposing, or studying, a  restructuring of this area ("F")  without  consent   from   the  citizens of this area is a violation  of our rights, as per Constitu  tion of Canada.  We   hereby   request   the  Ministry of Municipal Affairs  to withdraw all funding of the  Restructuring Study and prohibit any further act by the  Town of Gibsons on this matter. Furthermore, any referendum planned by the Ministry to  be held separately - not Area  "F" against or lumped in with  the Town of Gibsons, so  citizens of Area "F" can be  treated in a fair manner.  If these requests are nol carried out we will take necessary  action to protect ourselves.  Bert Norman  NO DOWN  PAYMENT  OAC  QUICK  FINANCING  OAC  We Accept  TRADES  Cars & Trucks  More Cars!

Last  week's winner was Mrs. J.W, Dumma, Box 307, Madeira Park,  who correctly identified the water tower at the end of Dogwood  Drive in Madeira Park.  Indian band opposes  change on sewer  plants. We feel it will be in the  best interest of the region if we  continue to manage the  system," she says.  "The Sechelt Indian Band  holds a one-third interest in the  system and they are concerned  that they will not be able to control their growth if the transfer  were to take place," Connor added.  Director Jim Gurney says  that the SCRD is not opposed  to the District of Sechelt owning  their own collection system, but  that it is not in favour of complete ownership. "I feel they  would be in a conflict of interest  if the transfer were to take  place," he added.  Mayor Koch points out that,  at the time of restructuring, the  Deputy Minister for Municipal  Affairs agreed the District of  Sechelt should take over the  ownership of the sewer sytem.  "We would be willing to let  the SCRD take care of daily  operations and allow their staff  to operate the plant, but,  anything more than that, would  be unusual for a regional district  to be involved in," says Mayor  Koch.  "We know where the services  need to go and we should not  have to work through another  agency to get those services,"  added the mayor.  The Sechelt Indian Band  recently informed the Sunshine  Coast Regional District board  that they are opposed to any  transfer of ownership regarding  their sewer system.  A letter received by the  SCRD states, "Firstly, we do  not see how any transfer of  ownership to the District of  Sechelt could proceed without  our prior written consent.  Secondly, we are opposed to  any such transfer in any event."  Sechelt's Mayor Bud Koch  says, "This is news to me. We  have a letter from the Band  stating that, providing their  rights were protected, they  would not oppose the transfer.  Of course, we agreed to honour  their rights and previous agreement.  "The Dislrict of Sechelt  needs to be able to control it's  growth and this is done by providing sewer service to new  developments. We do not feel  the SCRD has any jurisdiction  in this function," says Mayor  Koch.  SCRD Chairman Peggy Connor replies that it is more  economical for the SCRD to  operate the sewer treatment  plant.  "The sewer plant is also used  as a lab  for other outlying  November  FAX SPECIALS  RKCIUI.AK  Courier i  Courier 250  Courier 2  Courier 300  Courier 4  $2295.00  2495.0(1  3295.00  3695.00  5295.00 (Disc.)  $1850.00  2095.00  2795.00  3195.00  3995.00  Pricea include membership in SAVIN'S EXCLUSIVE  GOLD CARD CLUB - for hot line service support.
