 Legislative Library  Parliament Buildings  Victoria, B.C. V8V 1X4  88.8  The Sunshine  February 8,1988      Volume 42       Issue 6  Interpretation error  Hillside project  draws attention  Deputy Mayor Mike Shanks of Sechelt (lower right) and Mr. Bruce  On wide range of issues  deliver petition for a canal study to an attentive ministerial panel at  Greenecourt Friday morning (see story below).      -Ken Collins photo  Veitch hears concerns  Economic Region II, stretching Irom the Sunshine Coasl  to Boston Bar, encompasses approximately 54 percent of Ihe  population and 70 percent of  the economic activity of British  Columbia.  Minister of Stale for that  region, the Honourable Elwood  Veitch, was in Sechdt-Friday  along with MI.A's Harold Long  and Norman Jacobsen lislcning  to submissions from the public.  From 9 am until noon and then  back again at 2 pm, the minister  and parliamentary secretaries  listened to over 12 briefs thai included everything from a man  selling Illuminated advertising/directional signs at ferry  terminals to the Nurses'  Association presenting health as  a natural resource.  "The primary objective is to  listen lo you, to discuss- ideas  with you, and lo lake your ideas  away with us," Veitch said in  his opening address from the  dais where the three elected officials sat. At ihe conclusion of  every presentation, each one  took the lime lo comment on  their Initial reaction.  "The objective of the provincial government," said Veitch,  "is to be more responsive lo  local issues and concerns, lo  hearing you and acting on the  personal input thai you bring to  meetings such as ihis and lhal  you will be bringing lo us in ihe  future.  "The government is willing to  co-share the cosl of a feasibility  sludy with you," he told Deputy Mayor Mike Shanks concern  ing the petition for a Sechelt  canal sludy.  Travel Sunshine Coasl was  told the minister would work  with them any way he possibly  could. "I guess you can have all  the potential in Ihe world and il  remains potential unless someone markets it to someone,"  Veiled said and went on to state  that tourism was the fastest  growing Industry in the world.  SCRD Chairman Peggy Connor was told thai transportation  needs would be looked at. He  noted the reinstating of the  10:30 am Langdale ferry and  said an extension of Ihe airport  runway was being considered.  As well as transportation, the  SCRD brief mentioned the  Hillside proposal, a natural gas  pipeline, the Provincial  Emergency Program, the full 50  bed expansion al St, Mary's  Hospilal, a drug and alcohol  counsellor, the Sechell Inlet  sludy, and a re-thinking of the  increased local school lax.  "We are nol prepared lo see  oilier projects supported until  Ihese have been addressed,"  concluded the Iwo page brief.  Brendan O'Kcefe, co-owner  of Ihe Driftwood Inn and Pebbles Restaurant spoke of Ihe  hard limes the hospitality industry is having.  "We'll see if we can't work  together to sec thai you gel  more volume," he was told.  Veitch said thai the type of submission given was very important in identifying some of the  concerns in an area.  Janet  Dolman, representing  the Sunshine Coast Arts Council, asked for a larger share of  lottery funds. "We are very apprehensive lhal under the new  regional system our needs may  be eclipsed by the more high  price lag needs of the Lower  Mainland, especially Vancouver," she said.  "How many lottery tickets,  do you buy?" asked Veitch,  who pointed out that because of  a small population, the proportion of funds received may be  more than in larger centres.  Support was given for  Sargent Bay becoming a public-  beach and natural park. The  seniors want to build their cenlre unencumbered and are still  short of their goal. As well, they  sec transportation as a pressing  issue.  The Sunshine Coast Maritime  Historical Society and the Gibsons Landing Theatre Project  both put in Iheir bids for funds  and ihen Carol Rubin appeared  for the Sunshine Coast Environmental Protection Project.  She asked if any of the  feasibility studies done lately  had addressed ecological  feasibility.  "Will Canror's Port Mellon  pulp mill be assessed for current  impact on water and air quality  before a decision regarding a  new Waste Management Permit  is made?" she asked. "Did the  Province of B.C. bother to obtain assessed environmental impact studies from Norway,  Scotland, and other pioneers in  ihe aquaculture industry before  issuing   Ihe   first,   or   50th  aquaculture lease here?"  "Do you feel thai B.C. is a  greater polluter than other areas  in the world?" questioned  Veitch.  "I feel Ihe premier is pulling  a 'for sale' sign on our  resources," Rubin stated.  "Industry and the environment can live together,"  asserted Veitch. "We arc learning."  Following right on the heels  of Rubin was Iris Griffith of the  Sunshine Coasl Peace Committee. Her concern was ihe  possibility of accidents with  nuclear reactors in local waters  and US ships entering with  nuclear weapons. Among oilier  things she asked that B.C. be  declared a nuclear weapons free  zone.  Referring to nuclear arms as  a 'terrible scourge' Veilch expressed the view thai Ihe provincial government wouldn't be  able to exert much influence  and that people such as Joe  Clarke and Ronald Reagan  should be appealed to.  "There is no doubt we live in  Ihe most unsafe world thai any  generation has ever lived in,"  commented Norman Jacobsen  as he thanked Griffith for her  participation. "Together," he  said, "society will hopefully  make enough of an impression  on il lo alleviate the situation."  At lhal poinl the meeling was  closed lo the public and Ihe  minister and his group mel  privately with the SCRD  Economic Developmeni Com-  An announcement by Forests  and Lands Minisicr, Dave  Parker and MLA Harold Long,  last week caused a small furor  among Sunshine Coasl residents and Vancouver media  people. On Thursday, February  4, Parker and Long announced  ihe acquisition of 182 hectares  near Port Mellon for use as a  'dangerous-goods port and  forest related industries.'  The parcel referred to is locally referred to as the Hillside site  and has been sought after as a  preferred location for a forest  products industrial park and an  ideal location for a tank farm,  lo be used by gas and oil companies.  At the present time, companies have petroleum product  storage tanks scattered throughout residential areas on the Sunshine Coast, a situation which  directors on the Sunshine Coast  Regional District (SCRD)  Board consider highly dangerous. For many years, one director after another has attempted  lo persuade the oil companies to  move Ihe tanks to a nonresidential area. In order to encourage that move, they hope to  lease or purchase the Hillside  site from the provincial government and have part of it  developed as a storage facility,  with a barge wharf constructed  to off-load the petroleum products.  Local governmenl officials  were Hooded with calls after ihe  announcement both from Vancouver media people and local  residents concerned aboul the  prospect of hazardous materials  being diverled to the Sunshine  Coasl. However, Harold Long  assured the Coast News that the  only hazardous goods being  considered, were those already  being brought here to fill the  storage tanks along the coast.  The agreement signed on  February 4, by the provincial  government with Sechelt Aggregate Ltd. transfers the  Hillside site to the Ministry of  Forests and Lands. In exchange, the company receives  royalty concessions on gravel on  crown land near Porpoise Bay  at Sechelt.  The private property with an  estimated value of $2 million,  was acquired in response to requests from local governments,  Parker said.  The minister noted that the  SCRD has completed preliminary planning for the area and  serious interest has been expressed by prospective users of  the property.  Parker said the Sechelt Indian  Band has stated its intention to  work with Sechelt Aggregate  Ltd. to process the gravel. A 20  year supply of gravel has been  predicted.  "This agreement will result in  25 new direct and indirect jobs  for the area. It will also assist in  providing a solid economic base  for the native people," the  minister said.  "We recognize that some  local residents are concerned  over the impact of the quarrying  and loading operation, but we  have been assured that all  reasonable measures will be  taken to mitigate these concerns," Parker said. !,  A mining development plan,  lo be prepared by the company,  will be subjected lo the full  review of a number of regulatory agencies, he added.  Tugboat to the rescue  Prompt action  prevents disaster     I  From Vancouver I.     B^^^^  More elk expected on Coast  Fourteen Roosevelt elk have  shown up in Ihe vicinity of an  elk irap near Campbell River  and wildlife officials and  volunteers, both from Campbell  River and the Sunshine Coasl,  are on tenter hooks wailing for  Ihe animals lo enter ihe  enclosure.  The plan is to capture the  animals and release Ihem on the  Sunshine Coasl, in a repeat performance of a similar projeel  which occurred about a year  ago.  The present Sunshine Coast  herd, which numbers eight  animals, is thriving. Of the  original seven lhal were  transplanted, one died of  transport shock, but two calves  were born ihis year.  The elk trap, which is a large  enclosure on a farm in the  Campbell River area, has been  baited with fresh alfalfa lo lure  Ihe animals. For some lime  now, volunlcers from wildlife  clubs have been checking the  trap every nighl. The elk started  to show up In the lasl few days,  but so far only aboul four al a  lime have vcnlured inlo the  trap.  Local conservation officer  Jamie Stephen told the Coast  News that if there are bulls in  Ihe herd Ihey will have to be  tranquilized and their antlers  sawn off. If this is not done,  they could very possibly kill the  cows and calves.  The fortuitous arrival of the  tugboat Ocean Iris al Sminy's  Marina gas float in Gibsons  Harbour prevented a potentially  disastrous lire from gelling out  of hand lasl Friday evening al  approximately 5 pm. The lug  was pulling in to the wharf  when skipper Norm Cartwrighl  noticed smoke curling up from  beside the gas pumps on Ihe  float.  He gave a warning blast on  his horn, cut loose a couple of  boats thai were tied to the float,  turned on his monitor and  began spraying the float with  ocean water. Although unable  lo extinguish the lire which was  feeding on the oil and gas soak-  ed planks, Cartwrighl managed  ' ' ��� i if  to keep il confined lo a small  smoldering area on Ihe lloal until the Gibsons Volunteer Fire  Department arrived.  Marina owner Harry Smith  told the Coast News lhal they:  suspect a cigarelle is responsible  for the mishap. An electrical inspection the next day showed  the wiring lo be in good shape.  Smith theorized that a cigarette  carelessly tossed by someone on  the float may have smoldered  for a while by Ihe gas pumps  before igniting the planks.  The fire destroyed some  planking in the immediate area  and burned oul one pump.  Smith says the repairs will be  completed in plenty of lime to  reopen for tourist season.  -V.. ��� *-��� r,;~v  Sea Cavalcade  There will be an annual general meeting of Gibsons Sea  Cavalcade on Thursday, February 11 al 7:30 pm at Nifty  Thrifty's (above Ken's Lucky Dollar). Nominations from the  floor will be accepted.  Seminar on  cardiac problems  Dr. Peter Allen, prominent cardiac surgeon will speak on  cardiovascular problems and the prevention of this disease.  On the same program will be Mr. Charles Harris who will  speak on pacemakers.  Public welcome. Tuesday, February 9 al 6:45 pm at the Kin  Hut.  An alert tugboat skipper and a responsive fire department averted what could have been a serious fire at  Smitty's Marina in Gibsons Harbour early Friday evening. -Ken Collins ft Jan Ncabutr pliotos  Serving the Sunshine Coast since 1945 Coast News, February 8,1988  Comment  _y  The Great Debate  The issue of the right to abortion is one loaded with  emotional energy on both sides of the debate. The proponents of egalitarianism and liberty are as passionately  committed as those who believe with passionate conviction  lhat legalized abortion is a major assault on the sanctity of  life.  The debate will rage on for some years yet since neither  side seems in the least inclined to accept defeat.  A poinl thai bears repealing however, was made by  Peter Gzowski on CBC's Morningside program in discussion with a group of Pro-Life spokesmen. The voices raised in favour of legalized abortion do not seek to make  abonion mandatory; they do not seek to impose their  views on the whole of society; the Pro-Life voices seek to  make their moral convictions ihe law of the land.  The iradition of democracy is a tradition of pluralism  and one must, who espouses democracy, admit to some  uneasiness whenever one set of standards, however seemingly worthy in themselves, are pui forward as the only  standards thai society can accept.  One could wish lhal as much passion were engendered  on behalf of those children already born. It remains an  anomaly thai our provincial government is strongly opposed to the legalization of abortion bul is also opposed to  feeding the 10,000 Vancouver children that we are told are  unable to learn because they suffer from malnutrition.  It is simply not good enough for the Minister of Health  and Welfare, ihe Honourable Claude Richmond, lo ask  for Ihe names of ihe parents so lhat ihey can be educated  in proper budgeting. There is enough evidence thai it is impossible to raise a family on the rates provided welfare  recipients.  Nor can it be accepted lhat all those on welfare are on  welfare because they are too lazy to work. We are a society  in transition and showing some strain. Food Banks lo feed  ihe hungry, unthinkable in Canada a decade ago, are now  an established and enduring fact of life.  Al a lime when school budgels are being cul quite  drastically we learn thai we are not seeing more than two  thirds of our young people complete even high school  though we are also being told theirs will be a technologically demanding future. There are structural elements to  chronic unemployment and poverty that must be recognized as a social problem.  We are indebted to Pastor J. Cameron Fraser for his Idler of last week which made the argument for the Pro-Life  view in a reasonable and intelligent manner, avoiding emotional excess and unproductive abuse. We suggest,  however, thai one of ihe primary causes of abortion at Ihe  present lime may be chronic and inescapable poverty; we  suggest that the same concern should be expressed for the  children born and suffering from the malnutrition which  comes from chronic poverty.  Il can be readily agreed that a society thai sees abortion  as a growth industry is a sick society. Once again,  however, Ihe danger is thai we are seeking lo eradicate  symptoms rather than dealing significantly with the causes  of lhal sickness.  5 YEARS AGO  The root of the largest building in Egmont was raised  on February 4 at the site of the old Egmont Marina. The  new pub and social club will be called 'The Back Eddy  Pub'.  West Coast Architecture permeates the modern 3344  square foot structure, which overlooks one of Ihe more  scenic views of Jervis Inlet. Joe and Trudy Muller are  the owners and driving force behind the most ambitious  project the Sunshine Coast has seen in over a year.  10 YEARS AGO  A recently laid off employee of the Bank of Commerce  in Gibsons has been picketing the bank's premises for  the past several days to protest the lay off which she  maintains is a direct result of her attempt to form a  union in the bank.  15 YEARS AGO  Gibsons Council will seek information from the provincial forestry department on the possibilities of a  debris clean up in coastal waters. Mayor Walter Peterson told council that beaches in some places are piled  high with debris and boat traffic is suffering 'S a result  of debris in the water.  20 YEARS AGO  Parents with children attending Gibsons Elementary  School have complained about traffic hazards when  students are dismissed to go home.  25 YEARS AGO  The Kinsmen and Kiwanis clubs have joined forces in  a project to build a health centre in Gibsons.  30 YEARS AGO  Fred Holland was hired by Gibsons Council as  maintenance man at a $3200 yearly salary.  35 YEARS AGO  One hundred persons attended a farewell (unction  honouring Father L.

In essence,  he explained ihe program of  economic regions as an attempt  to cut through government red  tape and make government  more accessible to economic initiatives from ihe grass roots.  Anyone with any experience  in dealing wilh government will  welcome any initiative which  promotes such a goal. 1  remember one of the fish farming pioneers on the Sunshine  Coast saying thai the most important attribute he had in gel-  ting his fish farm started up was  a degree in political science  from Simon Fraser University  which helped him in the process  of weaving his way through the  levels of bureaucracy between  the idea and the realisation.  So the message lhal ihe I  Minister of State for our  economic region brings is a  welcome one, particularly in Ihe  malter of offering co-ordinating  support where more I ban one  jurisdiction is involved. His office will be responsible for bringing together representatives  of different departments where  more than one ministry is involved and lhat alone will ensure, one hopes, lhat the  labyrinth of government will be  a liltle less daunting for those  who have ideas which will help  to diversify our economy.  Not all Ihe assistance lhal ihe  senior government will provide,  however, will help us very much  if we don't begin to solve thai  other labyrinth that stands as a  bar to economic progress on the  Sunshine Coast, the labyrinth  of warring jurisdictions who  bombard the senior government  with opposing views at the drop  of a hat. We simply must learn  to reconcile our differences  locally before we can lake advantage of any improved processes on the part of Ihe senior  government.  We are presenting no brief  here on  behalf of any local  jurisdiction. All are guilty of irrational hostility perpetuated  year after tiresome year.  For example: in Sechelt the  mayor conducted an all-out effort to have the gravel extraction project stopped at the same  time as he was proposing a  canal built largely on Indian  land. Had he met with Ihe Indian band and proposed a canal  as an alternative before trying to  stop their proposal he might  have received at least a  courteous hearing on the subject of joint action.  In Gibsons, we find a council  proposing a restructuring sludy  al the same lime as the mayor  seems intent on unceasing warfare wilh Ihe elected represcn-  laiivcs of Ihe people thai she  wants to join Gibsons. There is  an obvious lack of coherence in  these two policy directions  which is altogether too common.  Nor is ihe Sunshine Coast  Regional Dislrict blameless in  Ihis regard. When Sechell asked  for help with the arena Ihe  directors did not extend the  courtesy of having the question  put lo iheir electors. The refusal  to do so was correctly interpreted by Sechelt Council as  revenge-taking for Sechell's  stance on economic development.  Similarly, Ihe abrupt  dismissal of Mayor Koch's suggestion that the local governments explore the proposal lhal  a bus service be provided by cooperative effort seems arbitrary  and vindictive.  To repeal, il simply does not  matter how Victoria streamlines  its processes if we continue to  present to them a divided and  hostile aspect. They will continue to wash their hands of us  until we can get our own act  together.  It may be time to Ihink new  Ihoughts. One of the interesting  questions raised at Ihe first Gibsons restrucling meeting was  whal would happen to the rest  of the Sunshine Coast if ihe  proposed Gibsons restructuring  went through. Il is a good ques  tion.  Now thai Areas E and F have  their community plans in place  il may be possible, while  guaranteeing thai those plans  will be respected, to explore Ihe  possibility of one regional  municipality or two on ihe Sunshine Coasl.  We must either simplify the  situation by reducing the  number of political jurisdictions  or persuade the existing jurisdictions lo co-operate. Sadly,  nothing lhal has happened lately indicates the latter possibility  to be a likelihood. A larger  restructuring may have to be the  answer though one recognizes  the oceans of paranoia and bile  lhal are bound to be spilled  should any such proposal be investigated.  The fact is lhal the provincial  government, even if Ihis present  attempt to streamline its procedures is hugely successful, will  be unable lo help us until we  have mastered the an of agreeing and disagreeing in a sane  and sensible manner.

Elizabeth llarrett Browning  ii**M*M#i  Maryanne's Viewpoint  Intelligence is most important resource  by Maryanne Wesl  I couldn't disagree more with  those in Britain, whose response  to the need for change in their  educational system is to limit  opportunities, "We have to ration educational opportunities  so that society can cope with the  output of education."  Trying to put the clock back  to the beginning of the industrial age when education was  a tool to screen children, to provide workers for the assembly  lines and factories at one level  and professionals, diplomats,  etc., at another, is surely no  answer to a future we can only  guess at.  I understand the anxiety of  politicians when large numbers  of young people are unable to  find worthwhile employment,  but deliberately using the education system to create a 'low-  tech' class is something one  would   hope   would   be   an  anathema lo Canadians. All industrialized countries arc facing  the problem of having to phase  out assembly line jobs, which  have been the backbone of the  economy, lo stay competitive,  but limiting opportunities for  anyone has to be the wrong way  to go.  Creative intelligence must be  the most important resource we  have, and if we are to survive in  a finite world we shall need,  more than ever, those creative  abilities which have brought the  human race so far in such a  relatively short time. With all  due respect to economic  theories, gimmicks like free  trade and privatization, and  despite patronage, graft and  corruption, it is still true that  those who can build a better  mousetrap, or create a commodity for which there is a  need, or a more efficient way of  doing mundane chores or processing materials, will be successful.  The creative abilities of the  human mind are not fully  understood, but we do  recognize thai Ihe satisfaction  which comes from the use of  these inherent talents is  something necessary to the  human spirit, and something  which is as individual as each  person.  Our education system, it  seems to me, should be geared  to encourage and nourish each  child's interests and innate  curiousity, his/her imagination  and to ensure that all children  are exposed to as wide a spectrum of creative opportunities  as is possible. Children after all  are not liltle empty containers  of varying capacity whom we  send to school to be filled with  X number of facts and figures  prescribed by some higher  authority. They're more like  young plants which, given the  right conditions will grow into a  wonderful variety of flowers,  only unlike plants we don't  know loo much aboul each individual's potential, so that the.  job of the school and the community should be to provide lots  of everything!  The challenge for educators is  to discover why the eager, enthusiastic three, four and five  year old bursting with energy  and curiosity, turns far too  often into a bored, lack-lustre,  couldn't care-less 10 year old or.  teenager. We can't afford to  lose these children, still less to  deliberately channel them into  jobs which do not provide a  challenge or outlet for their  abilities.  I don't imagine there are simple solutions and any solutions  will involve changes in the basic  styles and will have to begin in  Ihe universities where teachers  arc taught. Otherwise there will  just be a repeat of what happened to the open-area idea for  elementary schools. Coast News, February 8,1988  Letters to the Editor  Bus makes a valuable contribution  Editor:  Having perused the local  newspapers over the past week,  1 am disappointed to read that  the local Gibsons Bus Service is  in such an unnecessary predicament.  For two years my daughter  relied on the early morning  scheduled run as provided by  the Gibsons bus during her  stint at BCIT. It was not  through public knowledge but  through the fact that Mr. Kelly  (operator of said service) resided across the street.  Not to have to gel up and  scrape the windshield at 6 am  was in itself a blessing. Not to  have to drive to and from the  ferry was a relief.  Had Mr. Kelly not resided  across the street, and had he  not driven a van with 'Gibsons  Bus' on the front, we would  never have known that the service was available.  Financial difficulties are  before this public convenience  and it would appear that there  is great reluctance to assist in  the plea for help.  Gibsons is usually bemoaning that the world is passing  them by. Why not advertise  and provide the service that is  obviously used and required by  some and probably needed by  others.  Time is passing. Progress is  advancing. This is not the little  Misguided warning  Editor:  'Don't talk to strangers' is a  common warning given to children by parents concerned for  the personal safety of their  children. Although well intended, the warning ignores everything known about those who  commit sexual crimes against  children and, if anything, leaves  the child more vulnerable to exploitation.  The term 'stranger' is confusing to a child and misleads the  child into believing that he or  she should only be cautious of  people who have an unusual or  slovenly appearance. The truth,  of course, is that it is impossible  lo know a child molester by appearance. They come from all  walks of life, many of them  even in positions of trust with  children.  Research has also shown that  over 80 per cent of all crimes  against children are committed  by someone known to the child,  Dream  Shoppe  **��*  For your    \  Sweetheart  STAINED GLASS  and m.siiv other  GIFT  ITEMS  885-1965 ^  Dolphin Mini Mall, SvcMl  not by someone the child would  consider to be a stranger.  Creating undue fear in the  child's mind of 'strangers' then  leaves the child open to assault  by someone the child knows  and trusts.  When speaking to children  about personal safety it is more  appropriate to teach them how  to respond to certain situations  rather than giving them a particular profile or image of a  'stranger.' Research has also  shown that those who prey  upon innocent children use only  a limited number of lures to attract their prey. Children can  easily be taught these 'lures' and  how to respond should they be  approached.  Crimes against innocent children will not be prevented by  the use of games, gadgets, gimmicks, fingerprint kits or fear  generating literature that is  becoming too common on the  market today. They can be prevented through common sense  educational programs in school  and in the home.

What better way than  iO advertise, that once one  has travelled by ferry to our  shores, we will provide a service to our community.  Advertise, get behind a service that is needed and would  most probably be used if only  the very basic, simple, mundane task of advertising were  exercised.  Marketing is a modern word.

The  following are excerpts from lhal  J     interview:  C.N.: There is a lot of confusion about whai a minister of  state is as we have never had one  before.  VEITCH: ll would be incorrect to refer to ii as a ministry.  A minister of stale is a process,  a new process to hopefully  make government more responsive io ihe people al ihe community level, ihe local level.  First of all, we will have some  very important tasks: lo inventory everything we have in ihe  province, io look al those things  which are good and try to build  upon them! io try to do thai  wherever possible with ihe aid  of ihe community leaders, ihe  chambers of commerce, ihe  local developmeni committees  and entrepreneurs,  C.N.l I'm sure you are aware  of ihe FIX' situation from talk-  ing io Mayor Koch.  VEITCH: Yes, Bud did men-  lion il io me, come lo ihink of  il.  C.N.: Can you see a way of  reinstituting funding for the  EDC through the regional  board function or are you going  lo try lo come through the back  door?  VEITCH: No, we are nol Irving to come around Ihe back  door al all. If ihey would ask  for my assistance in lhal area we  would certainly look al it. Mind  you, ihey would have lo be doing something in the community  io gel funding.  C.N.: We have privatization  happening, we have a policy of  less government...  VEITCH: This is pari of lhal  same philosophy.  C.N.: Il almost seems like  more government, a collusion  between government and  business with government get-  ling more involved in business.  VEITCH: No, it isn't. It is  simply to make the things that  you've got, work where you  can. 1 could give you scores of  examples of this. Lots of ideas  simply gel caught up, for  whatever reason, in local red  lape or provincial red tape.  Sometimes ihey are nol even  properly veiled. This is an al-  lempi to gel around thai.  C.N.: Are we on top of the  economy?  VEITCH: No, I don't think  we are on top of the economy. 1  don'l ihink any government  ever has been, bul we are  sincerely attempting to assess  where we are righl now al this  poinl in time. You know,  believe ii or not, with all the  studies that have been done with  government, there is no one  poinl we can go lo on a  definitive basis, punch a button,  and say dial's where it's at in  lhal area. By ihe time we finish  the First stages of this process,  we'll know where lhat's at.  C.N.: In doing all lhat stuff,  how much does Milton Freed-  man philosophy and ihe Fraser  Institute influence your thinking?  VEITCH: It doesn't influence me. Where 1 agree with  Freedman 1 agree strongly.  Where I disagree, 1 disagree  strongly. The same with the  Fraser Institute. I see the whole  political spectrum as a circle. If  you go far enough around you  com,- to the same place. I'm nol  suggesting thai ihe Fraser In-  siitulc or Milton Freedman are  al any point on lhal circle bul  ihey are certainly further right  of cenlre than I am.  C.N.: Traditionally we are a  resource-based economy...  VEITCH: We've got to break  lhat tradition, by the way, and  that is one of the things we are  trying to do.  C.N.: The expectations of  part of the generation that I  came along with, were that we  were inventing machines thai  were going lo do all this work  for us, which they are now all  doing, and somehow we were  going to benefit from the  wealth.  VEITCH: I think we have.  Computers are an example of  that. You know, I am an accountant, and I remember back  a number of years ago when  everybody was talking aboul  computerizing their offices.  This was going to do away with '  all the people.  Well, I'll lell you, ihere are  more people now working on  EDP stuff ihan Ihere was ever  before. So, I think il has, bul  it's changed ihe way we look al  things, It's changed Ihe way we  work. Bul govcrnmeni hasn't  changed, and industry hasn't  changed and here we are moving Into a brand new century  and we still haven't adapted to  the thinking of the one we're  coming out of yet.  Government has to change  the way it addresses things,  never forgetting the wisdom of  ihe ages. Never throwing that  away, but at least looking forward to say how can we find a  new way of doing things.  Is centralized government a  good idea? I firmly believe thai  the more you centralize government, the more problems you  get inlo and again I'll go back to  the wisdom of ihe ages and  agree with Franklin lhat the best  kind of government is the kind  you are closes! lo as long as it is  responding lo Ihe needs. If it  isn't, if it becomes a bureaucracy loo, then Ihere is  something wrong with it.  C.N.: Whal kind of budget  do you have?  VEITCH: We haven't quite  worked it out yet. It will be  quif a bit less than one million  dollars for operating.  C.N.: The reason I ask is that  a lot of people here today are  asking for funding.  VEITCH: Oh, what they are  asking for is funding through  Ihe lotteries funding or established funds. But we are in the  process of doing a new small  business fund that should be announced in the early spring  along wilh another initiative as  well. We are here to maximize  whal is in the community, not  to give away large wads of  money because we do not have  large wads to give away.

H.H. #iSUNNY(RFSIPtAZA  GIBSONS, B.C   VON 1V0  TOLL FREE MM-lStl  Latest cougar incident  in Pender Harbour  by Teri Dawe  There was another cougar  sighting last Thursday in Pender  Harbour. Wayne Coleman of  Hold Lake went oulside lo find  his dog chasing a malure female  cougar up a tree.  "My dog is a collie and even  cats chase il so I didn'i feel this  cougar posed any Ihreal lo me  or my family," Mr. Coleman  told the Coast News. "It was  only 20 feel up ihe tree and very  calm aboul the whole malter.  We were all oul there looking as  I was snapping photos."  The reaction of neighbours  wasn't quite as calm, some  phoned Ihe conservation officer  feeling Ihe only ihing lo do was  lo shool Ihe cougar or have it  shol. The other half hoped it  would escape. As il turned out,  the big cat came down the tree  after a while and quickly disappeared into the bush.  "I like to live in the country,  isn't that why most of us live  here?" said Coleman. "I realize  ihere are cases were a cougar  may pose a threat to people or  their livestock, and I didn't  realize ihere were so many on  Ihe Coasl. Still I'm annoyed the  conservation officer doesn't  even have a tranquilizer gun.  This cougar escaped, for that  I'm happy but it bothers me to  think we've become so reactionary lhal we kill every cougar  lhal crosses our path."  Auxiliary luncheon  All members and friends of  Ihe Auxiliary are invited to attend the Annual Brown Bag  Lunch on Wednesday, February 17, 1988 al 11:00 am in the  Sechell Indian Band Hall.  The focus of this year's lunch  is ihe new Extended Care Facility soon lo be compleled.  Anyone interested in learning  more aboul Si. Mary's Hospital  and volunteering is welcome to  join us.  The rash of cougar sightings  and attacks on livestock and  pets is an indication of a very  healthy cougar population on  the Sunshine Coast. As a result  there is a 12 month open season  on cougars, with a three cougar  bag limit, higher than any other  area.  The Coast News asked Jamie  Stephen if cougars were truly  dangerous animals?  "I have very specific incidences where I believe luck  and intervention prevented  serious injury or death," he  said.  On the matter of a tranquilizer gun, the case for such  equipment is obvious. "I have  requested the branch supply one  for several years," he added.  tooi'     t  Jcf'��n       I  (V"        .;��  886-2425    Tues.-Fri., KM  GIBSONS REALTY LTD.  is pleased to announce the addition of  Jon McRaei  to their growing team of  IREAL ESTATE EXPERTSI  Jon's 12 years experience, knowledge and understanding  of the Real Estate Market on the Sunshine Coast is yours for the asking  whether you are buying or selling.

The Society had written a letter to Sechelt Council stating  they unanimously opposed providing the municipality wilh a  strip of property adjacent to the  sewage treatment plant.  The easement was requested  3T20  so a service road could be built  to a planned public works yard,  adjacent to both the marsh and  the sewage treaiment plant.  Currently occupying a portion of that land are a family of  beavers and the water they enjoy in the pursuit of their daily  endeavours.  The Society's letter of  January 9 did surface at the last  regular Sechelt Council meeting  but was not discussed other  than Alderman Bob Wilson  commenting that he still felt  something could be done to  convince the Marsh Society to  allow them a roadway.  %OFF  Anything Red  Sunnycrest Mall  886-3080  OPEN    VALENTINE  SUNDAY: Feb. 14  Green Scene  FLOWERS  & PLANTS  Sunnycrest Mall  (across from $uf>erV.ilu)=  1886-3371  In their letter, the Society had  requested that they be contacted  before Council discussed the  issue so they could attend and  speak to the matter.  Marsh spokesmen are concerned that even the close proximity of a public works yard  might hamper the well being of  the wildlife sanctuary. Questions are still unanswered regarding the possibility of vibrations  from heavy equipment driving  out the beavers and whether or  not there will be leachings.  MacLarty stated she will be  bringing the matter before  council for resolution.  Commission  gets update  Gibsons Aquatic Centre  Commission hosted Vic Davies  of Davies & Smith Architects of  Victoria at the regular monthly  meeting of the Commission.  Mr. Davies gave an in-depth  presentation, complete with an  impressive visual display of the  current trends in swimming  pool construction, renovation  and enhancement. In fact the  term 'swimming pool' was  seldom used, 'leisure' being the  topical word for the public use  of community aquatic centres.  A number of small towns  such as Chetwynd, Sparwood  and Clearwater have either built  new facilities or re-fitted existing ones. Whatever the route,  the completed facilities became  an attractive setting for swimmers and non-swimmers alike.  Coloured lights, comfortable  elevated viewing areas, intimate  sections within hot tubs, wall  murals, easier access, tumbling  waters and children's sprays are  evident in all Davies & Smith's  aquatic designs.  Two factors have led in all instances to a greater use, the first  of which has been the greater involvement and participation of  the local community, both as individuals and groups, with obvious benefit to the bottom-line  of the aquatic centre operation.  Second, where a local theme  has been incorporated into the  decor and setting, the centre has  become more of a pit-stop for  the wayward traveller.  The Aquatic Commission is  to hold an extra meeting on  February 15 with the purpose of  reviewing the Davis proposal,  and to begin the formulation of  an overall development plan for  the future.

The firemen also voted to  purchase a sel of 'jaws of life'.  They have money in the budget,  Ihe promise of donalions. and  ihe possibility of a gram to help  pay for the device.

FIRE NUMBER  It's hard to believe, with all  that's written about the Roberts  Creek Volunteer Fire Department, that people living in  Roberts Creek still call the Gibsons Fire Department in an  emergency. (Evidently not  everyone reads this column.)  Each fire department has its  own phone number. If you're  not sure which fire protection  jurisdiction you live in, you  should check it out now, before  you need to know. There is not  a whole lot of time to waste if  your house is on fire.  Roberts Creek's boundaries  are the cemetery at the corner of  Lower Road and the highway  on the east (with a jog down  Pine Road to make things confusing) and the Sechelt sign on  Rat Portage Hill on the wesl.  Everybody living between those  boundaries, from the ocean up  to the mountain, should phone  the Roberts Creek fire number,  885-3222. If you phone Gibsons or Sechelt they can't respond because they would be  leaving their own taxpayers unprotected.  Member of  ALLIED.

The cost of claims is up.  As with all other insurance, Autoplan is a pool of  funds which pays claims. The money in that pool has to  be sufficient to cover the money paid out. You may never  have made a claim. But you might need to in the future.  And the costs involved in claims have all gone up.  Accident-free drivers still pay less.  Under the Claim-Rated Scale, claim-free motorists  earn discounts up to 40%. Motorists who make an 'at  fault' claim are penalized and they will pay 80% or more.  So even when everyone's premium goes up to pay  for higher claims costs, the claim-free driver gets a break.  Drivers with claims do pay more.  In 1988, the increase in premiums is an average 22%.  But those with claims pay a lot more. For example:  One claim:      pay 83% more  Iwo claims:      pay 144% more  Three claims:   pay 225% more  There's no upper limit to the surcharge. So coverage  is increasingly expensive for drivers who cause accidents,  putting the responsibility where it belongs.  In addition, people who violate traffic regulations,  or have certain convictions under the Criminal Code, pay  a Driver Point Premium. The maximum premium for  more than 25 points in the preceding year has been  raised to $2,500.   Flair's fair.   In 1987, both the number and cost of claims was  much higher than anticipated. On the basis of this increasing trend, particularly in expensive bodily injury claims,  1988 is predicted to be the costliest year yet for Autoplan.  The 22% premium increase relates directly to this anticipated increase in claims costs. And those having the  accidents and making the claims will pay more -  much more.

A group home is the first step  in preparing mentally handicapped adults for full integration  into society, and the Association, somewhat belatedly it ad-  mils, is now prepared to meet  this challenge here in the Lower  Sunshine Coast, and also to  look to the establishing of a  residence or supervised apartment living next year in the  Sechelt area.  Pat Juraschka, the Achievement Centre administrator, tells  the Coast News that the Centre  now has a Shop Programmer  person to look after a new project called Work Stations in Industry. The new staff member is  Geoff Clement, an experienced  woodworker, who will add  furniture-making to the present  refinishing projects that the  shop performs. On display, in  fact, is an attractive coffee table  in natural native wood, a handsome example of the Centre's  newest endeavor.  Pat says that she will now  spend half of her week as the  Life Skills coordinator with a  staff of four part time instructors, and the other half with the  business of the Centre such as  public relations, marketing, and  in liaison duties between the  Association and the ministry,  i��� HEHHEDV RIDER GOLD CAMP ���i  '          I  On Vancouver Island, B.C., Canada  A REGION ol  SPECTACULAR NEW BOLD DISCOVERIES  Preliminary evaluations indicate the potential of  one or more world class high grade gold deposits  (moderate tonnage)  To receive the latest report  "Economic Potential Kennedy River Gold Camp"  please call collect:  Tel: (604)685-4335 Fax: (604)685-3353  IllllWIUIIIIluilim milllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllltlllllllll  I  This, in addition of course, to  attending to the needs of the  clients.

Halfmoon Bay Happenings  Local doctors get credit  by Kuth Forrester, 885-2418  Received a phone call Ihis  week from Mrs. Diraddo whose  son Robert was badly injured in  a car accident last November.  She is happy to report thai he  now gels home from Ihe Strong  Clinic every weekend and is  responding well lo ihe greal  treatment and therapy he  receives ihere.  A lot of credit for the fact  thai Robert is alive has to go to  the local doctors at St. Mary's  Hospital. According lo the staff  at the Vancouver hospital, to  which he was transferred, this  young life was saved by St.  Mary's doctors and staff. Mrs.  Diraddo is so grateful lo ihem  and to all the folks who have  sent cards and prayers for his  well being.  FIREMEN ELECT  The Halfmoon Bay  Volunteer Fire Departmenl  recently elected their slate of officers for 1988: Fire Chief is  Greg Phelps; Deputy, Ken  Clarkson;  Captains, Jim Ny-  gard and Bob Cocking; Training Officer is Bryan Carson;  and Secretary Treasurer is Terry  Anderson.  SKI CASUALTIES  May the cracked bones and  dislocated muscles of some well  known local skiers heal soon.

Wall McMillen was out of  the game for a couple of days  afler a collision with Bob Forrester. Walt had a badly bruised  leg for a few days while Bob  remained unscathed.  Tor One had a dislocated  shoulder which is now beginning lo heal with some therapy  and which will probably not  keep him off Ihe slopes for  long. These are all Redrooffs  folks by the way.

A person  with a terminal illness may be  afraid, angry, lonely, confused  and isolated. Family members  and friends may want lo help  and don't know how, or ihey  may be exhausted from helpi".  so much.  On the Sunshine Coast, there  are 13 hospice volunteers ready  lo provide Ihis kind of care and  support, free of charge. Each  has parlieipated in a training  program and has been interviewed to determine suitability.  Each is committed to ongoing  training and support.  A volunteer will visit in the  home, the hospital, or a care  facility. She will stay a few  minutes, a few hours, or  perhaps all nighl, depending on  the need.  She knows lhat each person is  an individual with unique needs  and wants, She knows that  some dying persons wish lo talk  about their illness and about  death, while others don't.  She knows that some want to  clear up unfinished business,  ranging from relationships to  wills.  She knows lhal some dying  persons will be angry while  others will be accepting, and  that persons often change  throughout the course of the illness.  She knows too that her  primary role is lhal of being a  good listener, nol giving advice  and nol judging. She realizes  ihe importance of keeping all  information confidential. She  will be Ihere to give support lo  the family following a death.

The pool table, which was  donated by Julius Sorenson  some years ago has been moved  so many times that it is in need  of repairs. So, hopefully it will  soon be in use again, and hope  all you card enthusiasts can  again make use of it.

The Holloways,  before moving to the southern  interior of B.C., were very active, hard working members at  Harmony Hall.  Sorry to hear that Mary  Strom had a fall, resulting in a  broken hip. Mary takes everything in her stride, so I'm sure  she will soon be back on her feet  again.  The next general meeting is  Monday, March 7 at 1:30 pm so  come out, express your views,  and find out what keeps Harmony Hall jumping!  let lit beetle A     V  ��-'  Gibsons Landing fV  886-2818 *y  ��5% OFF  Place Mats  Pewter Frames  Crystal Ornaments  455 Marine Dr.            886-3812   Gibsons Landing   Try our new  EUROPEAN STYLE  YOGURT       )�����*  Variety  S&S FOODS  ^Show Piece ^  L   Gallery  2  next to  the Gibsons  Fish Market  CUSTOM  FRAMING  ��� Oval Matting  ��� Dry Mounting  etc.  280 Cower PI.

Those  forms only have meaning when  you're using the earth as a  reference poinl. Personally, I  don'i have a problem with that,  it's where I spend most of my  time anyway.  From our puny perspective  here on earlh, because of the  different speeds al which ihe  planets revolve around the Sun,  there arc times when ihe oilier  planets appear to move  backwards through space.  In a horoscope, when a  planel is noied io be moving  backwards at ihe lime of birth,  l lie energies and characteristics  thai the planel reprcsenls arc interpreted to be less obvious,  more internalized. However,  when Mercury, ihe planel thai  represents the intellect and communication, goes retrograde  (appears lo move backwards) il  often has quite an obvious affect on everyone.  Mercury went reirograde on  February 2 and will continue in  lhal direction until February 23  so you can  make vour own  observations aboul how ii affects you and your family. Here  arc some things lo watch for.  Some form of fouled-up  communications are almost  always a problem during ihis  lime. People lose their voices,  the mail goes on strike or letters  gel lost. Phones go on the blink,  and ferries, trains, planes,  hoals, etc. run late.  Machines generally acl up,  especially things like stereos,  televisions and computers, but  washing machines, stoves and  fridges are not exempt. And  let's nol forgel cars. Not only  does the faithful family car  seem lo gel Its own version of  the flu , bul I've read that  vehicles built while Mercury is  retrograde lend to be the lemons  lhal never work quite righl.  Most of these things are more  inconvenience than major problems, bul unless you develop a  sense of humour, you can  become very frustrated. Make ii  a practice during these next few  weeks io double check things.  Make sure you pul the righl  postage on mail; check your oil  and brake fluid levels; ask if  ihere arc any messages for you,  don'l assume lhal Ihey were  written down; phone ahead and  check departure limes, etc.; and  gel lots of rest so thai you're  calm and collected should any  minor crisis occur.  With Mercury in Aquarius,  Ihis is probably a time of some  pretty convoluled thinking,  yours and others. So if you lind  yourself in a situation where  you and someone else just don'l  seem io be communicating, try  dropping ihe issue for a couple  of weeks. You may find il a lot  easier to work things oul nearer  lo ihe end of the month.  Chicken Shack  Feb. 12, 13. 14  ��� Sweetheart Dinner*  ���BUCKET 15 pc. chicken wammamm  Lg.

In the Heart of  Sechelt, Cowrie St.  885-7414  Road to drowned Renata  by Peter Trower  As we tool north, I learn yet  more about Max's life and  times and of course, Renata.  He tells me of the bitter winter  Of 1949 when the lake froze  three feet thick and you could  actually drive over it to  Castlegar. He tells me of wild  Saturday dances in Deer Park  across from Renala, where ihe  moonshine flowed like water  and he used to ferry the  celebrants back and forth. He  iclls me how he once had his  own logging business but wenl  belly-up in ihe end. He tells me  how he once bought the derelict Minto from the government  for $1, sold il back to them for  Ihe same price, and how it finally burned on the beach at  Nakusp. He tells me one yarn  afler another and I only hope I  can remember half of ihem.  Max, as should be apparent  by now, is a gregarious fellow.  He insists on slopping for beer  al a private yacht club where he  introduces us to more of his  friends. He then slops off at  Sid Smith's Marina to have a  chat with him. Finally, we hil  ihe rollercoasler of a road lhal  leads lo Deer Park and eventually Renala. Il reminds me of  Ihe road lo Coalmont, narrow  and winding with giddy dropoffs plunging sheerly lo the  lake.  1 remember the natural stone  bridge that Ann Stasila had  mentioned and ask Max aboul  it. He stops at a vantage point  and points il oul, a rocky  anomaly like a quolalion  mark, clearly visible on the  other side of ihe lake. It is apparently accessible by a rugged  irail from Renala. Of Ihe losl  lown of Brooklyn, Ihere is no  trace whatsoever.  We forge on and arrive al the  tiny community of Deer Park.  Here Max spies yet another old  friend and again, slops io chat.  This time Lucy reminds him  lhal il is gelling late, so he culs  ihe conversation short.  About Iwo miles pasl Deer  Park, we finally head down lo  Ihe beach where Max has his'  boal. Across the narrow strait  couple of tiny buildings are  visible on a strip of high  ground. There is nothing else.  We slide Max's aluminum boat  into the water, load up the supplies and set out. It is a brief  but chilly journey. As we approach the farther shore, I  realize we must be passing  directly over the drowned  town.  We nose into the beach  where fruit trees once grew and  jump out. Although Max has  lold us that there are a few people living here, I am still a bit  surprised to see an old car angling down from the benchland  io meet us. It turns out to be an  American from Washington  named George who somehow  stumbled upon lost Renata and  has made il his second home.  Max introduces us.  George's wife and family are  driving from Washington and  should arrive on the opposite  shore in a couple of hours. He  wants lo borrow Max's boal lo  pick ihem up. Max naturally  agrees. He has a second truck  parked further along the beach.  We load the supplies, climb  aboard and drive up on lo the  beach.  Here in a great grassy field  dotted with fruit trees, stands  ihe last of Renata's original  buildings, the old schoolhouse.  Max bought it and hauled it up  on his property before the  Hood. It stands there like a  white clapboard ghost, dreaming of palmier times. It strikes  me as faintly ironic that Max,  the indifferent student, should  have been the school's saviour,  bul his reasons were nol entirely altruistic. He and Lucy used-  ihe building as a weekend  reireat for many years, before  acquiring ihe modern trailer in  which they presently live.  Yvonne and I check out the  trailer and then wander off  across ihe huge meadow which  is Max's kingdom. Looking  towards the beach, we try to  imagine Renata as it once was  but the only trace of the town is  a cement-capped graveyard, far  lo ihe right. The reservoir is only half full bul the roads and  fields still lie under 30 odd feel  of wind-ruffled water. We  ponder on the strangeness and  sadness of it all, amazed thai  we have finally made it to th  long imagined place.  To be continued..

'PIT,  ���Ipm  1pm  **d '"am I  Book Review  Shirley's revolution  Coast News, February 8,1988  13.  JT  by Rose Nicholson  It's hard to say whether  Shirley Maclaine has started a  revolution or joined one.  Whichever way you put it, she  has most certainly added tremendous impetus to the surge  of interest in spiritual and philosophical matters thai is sweeping across the world these days.  Once almost an underground  movement, the 'New Age' is  now an 'in' thing. Even 'Time'  magazine, that barometer of  conventionality, took a look at  the phenomena in their December 1987 issue and featured  Maclaine on the cover.  'It's All In The Plav'njj',  Maclaine's latest book, is again,  like all her others, a very personal account of her exploration of these concepts.  In this book, she has focused  on one idea, 'you create your  own reality'. Or, to state it more  fully, 'life experiences are the  result of the sum total of  thoughts, beliefs and altitudes.'  As movie actress and more  recently, a movie producer,  Maclaine began to clearly see,  while making Ihe TV movie of  her book 'Out On A Limb', the  connection between creating a  movie and creating a life experience.  Throughout the book, she  traces the connection between  the thoughts, attitudes and  beliefs of the people making the  movie and the events that occurred during the production.  As in all her other books, the  point of view is so personal that  at times it is almost embarrassing. The reader sometimes gets  the feeling that he has blundered into a personal diary.  It is a temptation to be critical  of this lel-it-all-hang-out approach, but on the other hand it  has to be a mark of great  courage lo throw oneself open  to the scrutiny of millions of  readers.  What she is in fact doing is  challenging old philosophical  concepts, just as many others  are. The difference is that  Shirley Maclaine has credibility.  She has made it in the world. As  a successful dancer, actress,  author and an Academy Award  winner, she has played the game  according to Ihe rules, in a way  the world understands. Yet she  is willing io challenge many of  the ideas the world believes in  and suggesl lhat there might be  a betier way to run things. And  all those people out there who  have had secret misgivings  aboul ihe validity of society's  most dearly held beliefs are pro-  ably saying io themselves, 'Hev,  Shirley Maclaine thinks so too.  Maybe it's OK to say what I  think once in a while.'  it's All In The Playing', if  read with an open minil, could  be the catalyst that will make  many readers re-examine their  own lives and philosophies. If  enough people do this, that  word 'revolution' may not be so  out of line after all. But it will  be a gentle revolution, because  the watchwords are peace, harmony, cooperation and world  brotherhood. All Maclaine's  books are besl sellers, which of  course, means lhal there are  millions of readers who are  receptive lo these ideas.  The 'New Age' may indeed  be upon us.  Young  at Art  The Arls Council's children's  program, Young Al Art, is really taking off with kids busily  working on recorder, papier  mache, creative movement, and  storytelling. But there is still a  chance to register for Rhythmic  Motion for five and six year  olds (in the Arts Centre) and  Pottery Classes for both teens  and the eight to 12 year old  group (in Gibsons).  Maggi Lindsay meets with  kids on Saturday mornings with  rhythm instruments and music  to, encourage Ihem to use their  bodies in new and creative  ways. Six sessions cost $25.

Yes, of course Ihey would find us a table and  ihe special was Slcak and Lasagna.  They always have a superb special every week which includes Soup  or Salad, but tonight I fell I would Iry something more reminiscent of  hot summer days, a Caesar Salad and a Salmon Steak.  "Oh, by the way did that entree have the Omega Potato?" I asked.  Yes it sure did and il was as flavourfully fabulous as ever. I even  eschewed the possibility of dessert in order to eat my husband's  Omega Potato. He had been saving it until he had finished eating his  Steak and Lobster dinner. Unfortunately for him he was thoroughly  satisfied and relishing Ihe thought of snacking on it later. By now, 1  too was full, warm and happy.  Friends from all over the Coast were sitting at various tables, some  even slipping their forks into fluffy, eye appealing desserts. We could  only look with envy this time. The Omega always dishes oul generous  porlions of succulent, juicy entrees and they do likewise with their  desserts.  The atmosphere at the Omega is one that can stimulale the robust  friendship and outgoing conversation which we fell into when we saw  so many of our friends there; or it can offer the quiet, private romantic  spot for the intimate occasion as happened when my husband and I  drank to our nearing anniversary with House Coffee and liqueur; all in  the same evening!  1 truly recommend treating yourself to a spectacular special entree  or a spectacular special pizza al the Omega for low prices and high  standards.

Coast News, February 8,1988  Theatre group  to visit  Next week, students in four  elementary schools on the Sunshine Coast will have the opportunity to see the latest production by Green Thumb Theatre,  'Two Weeks, Twice A Year', by  Colin Thomas.  This play was commissioned  in direct response to hundreds  of requests from teachers  around BC, to deal dramatically  with the subject of children and  divorce. Recent statistics show  that many students are coping  with divorce in their family. In  BC during I985 divorce affected  more than 3400 dependent children (SlalsCan). When divorce  occurs, children are faced with  accepting the results of difficult  adult negotiations, but have  very little input inlo the process,  Young people not coping with  divorce struggle wilh similar  issues of trust, control and  responsibility.  There are four characters in  the play 'Two Weeks, Twice A  Year', 12 year old Joe, 6 year  old Gogo, and Iheir parents,  Sally and Mark. The play uses  an unusual theatrical device.  The characlers Joe and Gogo  are actually the same kid at two  different siages in his life! The  play focuses on Joe's adjustment to his parents' divorce and  his desire to live with his usually  absent falher. As Joe deals with  his present dilemma, 'Two  Weeks, Twice A Year' goes  looking for some answers in a  humorous and fair-minded  way.  The cast hopes that this play  will provoke classroom discus  sion to get young people thinking constructively about the  problems they and their friends  may face. A study guide has  been commissioned to serve as a  resource tool and is made  available to every teacher whose  class will be seeing the production. In this way, theatre can  become an integrated part of  the students' education, an  enriching and stimulating experience.  Green Thumb Theatre for  Young People was founded in  1975 with the mandate to  develop and produce new Canadian plays for young audiences.  By focusing on topics that are  of direct and immediate concern  to today's children, they attempt to offer some tools to  help them cope with the  challenges of modern life.  Equally important, they show  young people the excitement  thai live theatre has to offer.  Green Thumb lours throughout BC and across Canada  every year, regularly tours the  US, as well as the United  Kingdom, Europe, and the  Pacific Rim, performing annually to 180,000 young people,  their families and educators.  The company has received national and international acclaim, having received four  Jessie Richardson Theatre  Awards, two Chalmers Awards,  and a British Thealre Award.  Green Thumb's work has been  produced by 53 companies in  five differenl countries, and has  been translated into French and  Spanish.

January 17 at 8:10 pm a major propane leak was discovered at one of ihe portables at  Elphinstone Secondary School.  The department was alerted  and rushed to the scene to prevent any fire and secure Ihe  leak.  January 18 at 7:43 am trucks  responded to a fire in a pickup  truck on the highway near the  Suncoast Trailer Park.  January 25 at 7:18 am a  chimney fire on South Fletcher  in Gibsons brought department  members and trucks to the  scene.  January 30 at 9:25 am a  chimney fire spreading to the  house caused a tragic loss of  life and property for a family in  the Gower Point area. All Gibsons Fire Departmenl vehicles  were lied up in fighting the  stubborn blaze. At times as  many as three Gibsons firefighters struggled to save the  life of the resident who had  fallen from a ladder in an attempt to put out the blaze  before the fire trucks arrived.  En-route to the fire a locking  device on a ladder carried on  lop of one of the fire trucks  released resulting in the ladder  unloading onto the road. Firefighters chose lo leave the ladder on the side of the road  rather than lose valuable time  loading it onto the truck, which  could have had an unsafe ladder locking device.  A special note of thanks goes  out to the Roberts Creek Fire  Department who stood by in  the Gibsons Fire Prevention  District on backup alert in case  of another call during the time  the Gibsons Department extinguished the Gower Point  fire.  If you discover a fire in your  home, get everyone out and  call the Fire Departmenl from  a neighbour's phone. Stay  away from the building until  the Fire Department says it is  safe.  Police  news  Sechelt Police report that for  the past week they have received  calls to eight minor vehicle accidents. They have issued four  24 hour suspensions and have  charged one adult male with impaired driving.  On January 26, a male adult  was charged with causing a  disturbance by being drunk and  resisting arrest. He was slated to  give evidence at a trial in Sechelt  Provincial Court and appeared  at court in a state of intoxication.  On January 23, two male  youths were arrested for  shoplifting at a store in Lower  Gibsons.  It was reported on January 20  that youths were damaging turf  on the playfields of Elphinstone  Secondary by riding their  motorcycles there. This is under  investigation.  On January 26, gasoline was  siphoned from a motor vehicle  parked on Chaster Road. This  matter is still being investigated.  On January 24, a Makita  hand drill was stolen from outside a residence on North Road.  Call TIPS.  A break-in of a house on  Gower Point Road occurred  between 1:00 and 3:00 in the  afternoon. A window was  broken but nothing was taken  from the house.  Following a motor vehicle accident on Highway 101 on  January 23, a Gibsons male, aged 33, was charged with driving  impaired.  On January 28 in the very  early morning, a male driver,  age late 40's, was stopped and  charges are pending against him  for driving while impaired.  Sometime between 6 pm and  4 am, January 30, a residence  on Burns Road was broken into  and an AM/FM cassette player  stolen, along wilh a number of  tapes, liquor and cigarettes.  Telephone TIPS with any information concerning this theft.  Complaints of persons selling  meats and seafood house to  house in the Gibsons area have  been recently received.

A Gibsons adult male who  refused to leave a licensed  premises when required by an  employee to do so, was charged  with the offence on January 29. Coast News, February 8,1988  19.  Letters to the Editor  What are lasting local benefits?  Editor:  In early December plans were  announced for a billion dollar  expansion and upgrading to  Canfor's Port Mellon mill. In a  prominent advertising campaign entitled 'Improving Air  Quality at Howe Sound Pulp',  Harry Cargo asks, "In general  what do you think of Ihe expansion of Howe Sound Pulp?"  and, "What do you think of the  plans to reduce emissions from  level 'B' to level 'A'?"  I am all for reducing emissions from Ihe mill. Whal is not  said in Mr. Cargo's letter is thai  Ihe mill has not complied with  provincial pollution standards  since 1978. Cantor is now ap  plying for an amendment to  their existing Pollution Control  Permit. They are asking the  provincial government to allow  them to continue polluting  beyond the minimum standards  for another three or four years.  How much more damage to our  health and environment will  have been done by ihen?  With regard to the expansion  in general, I think we should  look closely at the cost/benefit  of Ihis proposal for us, Ihe people of B.C.  Much has been said aboul the  jobs thai will be crealed during  construction. But these jobs are  temporary and will account for  only a small amount of the total  money being invested. The bulk  of Ihe capital will be spent in  Japan to build the high-tech  pulp and paper machines required, thus most of the work  will take place in lhal country.  Once the new machines are in  place and operating, pulp and  paper will be leaving our coasl  al double Ihe presenl rale. All  ihe profits will also be leaving  wilh al least half of them going  oul of Ihe country. We will re-  lain our presenl 30 percent  unemployment rate, as les people are needed io operate the  new machines,  The Corporation also wants a  government guarantee of addi  tional wood chip supplies and  cheap energy, energy that is  produced at public expense. Indications are that the government is going to give the (Corporation everything ii wants.  After all this is in line with the  Social Credit policy of public  resource giveaways to the  private sector.  In conclusion, it looks lo me  like Ihe expansion of Howe  Sound Pulp is a good deal lot  ihe Corporation. Il gels profits  and subsidies while we gel  restraint and privatization while  being leii with high unemployment, denuded forests and  polluted air and water,  Hans Penner  Cruise testing seen as obscene  Contour Design  Presents A.

Honourable Joe Clarke  Minister of Foreign Affairs  Parliament Buildings  Ottawa, Canada  Re: Cruise Missile Testing  Dear Joe,  Excuse the familiarity. It  seems a very casual and  disrespectful mode of address to  the Minister of Foreign Affairs,  but it also seems lhat many letters to you begin in this way.  Anyway, l am writing this  note to let you know that I consider the Cruise testing program  to be OBSCENE. To permit on  Canadian soil the testing of an  American war weapon designed  as a first-strike nuclear weapon  is a terrible thing for any Canadian to permit.  Adding insult to injury it is  supposed to land on Canadian  soil, in Alberta of Olympic-  fame, the least Ihe Americans  could do is keep il up in Alaska.  Is this program the wish of  most Canadians or the Canadian Government? Even if the  excuse of following an International Alliance is used, our  government could scream oul a  proiest and could absolve  themselves of any complicity in  ihe mad nuclear race.  Best lulu yet!  Editor:  Of all the schemes the  Regional Board has heaved our  money at, the latest by Director  Wilson has lo be right up there  with the besl of the lulu's.  If the City of Vancouver with  its approximately 1,000,000 lax-  payers and billions of dollars of  lax base cannot fund the fire  boat ihen by all means, lei Ihe  Regional Board wilh its buckets  of excess cash, help Ihem oul  and take the boal off their  hands.  I'm sure that Mr. Wilson and  Ihe rest of Ihe board, with Iheir  vast store of marine knowledge,  know best but, in talking with  boal owners who hire no one al  all, ihe costs of maintaining a  large working vessel in any state  of preparedness is staggering.  The cost of the training of a  volunteer crew in order lhat  they could be qualified lo  opcrale such a sophisticated  vessel is yet another matter.  I ask Mr. Wilson, has Ihe  Sunshine Coasl ever had occasion lo need the use of a fire  boat, or is this purchase like the  purchase of Ihe $300,000  storage shed al Ihe end of Inlet  Avenue.  The only lime I have ever  observed a fire boal in action  was to welcome foreign lighting  ships or heads of slate al ihe  Pan Pacific Hotel.  Could il be lhat Mr. Wilson  envisions the following senario.  The citizens of the coasl all lined  up along the boulevard, the fire  boat aimlessly squirling waler al  Ihe sky. The regional directors  standing on the deck at attention all waiting for ihe new  prime minister.  Stan Anderson  Defence of choice  Editor:  I wish to disagree with Ihe  anti-abortion letter from J.  Cameron Fraser in lasl week's  paper. I have had five children  and never needed an abortion.  1 was fortunate. I had ihe  finances and emotional support  lo raise my offspring.  Bul Ihere are women without  these two ingredients, who  choose to terminate iheir  pregnancy. Because aborlion  was unavailable legally, they  resorted to sleazy backrooms,  where il was not unknown for  someone lo die in a botched attempt.  I am very much pro-choice. 1  do nol consider aborlion righl  or wrong, bul I respect the  freedom of each woman to  make the correct decision for  herself, and no one can judge  another's situation unlil you  have walked in her moccasins  for a while.  With free choice, we begel a  more humane society, and  reduce Ihe number of unwanted children who are later  abused or end up in foster  homes.  As far as Ihis being a religious issue, I can only say thai  compassion is a Christian virtue, perhaps nobler lhan  righteousness,  (Mrs.) Mary Wercnko  Enhance Your Image  on February 14th  MIRROR  DOORS  will  "reflect"  your love  all year long  4' sliding  Mirror  Door * 177 ��0  ' BIFOLD  MIRROR  DOOR        *13800  G_��l_iGJ wm  Hwy. 101 & Pratt Rd., Gibsons 886-7359  m  Do Canadians feel any safer?  Are we scaring Ihe Soviets or bringing ihem into line with these  tests?  The only good thing is that  most of Ihe missiles seem lo be  unreliable and vulnerable to  weather changes. No wonder  Ihe Americans test them in  Canada.  I Ihink many concerned  Canadians feel they have no effective input or influence on  government policy. I spend  hundreds of dollars donating to  anti-nuclear programs such as  Physicians Against Nuclear  War with no apparent effect.  Though nol a Conservative 1  believe I would give my vote to  ihe party which had ihe most effective anti-nuclear program.  I hope I have made myself  clear on what 1 think of ihe  Cruise testing program.  I appreciate your humanitarian programs for underprivilig-  ed nations.  Wilh best wishes to you and  yours.  Hugh F.

Coast News, February 8,1988  Veitch hears  canal proposal  by Ken Collins  A brief was presented on  behalf of Mayor Bud Koch of  Sechelt and in support of the  proposed Sechelt Canal during  Minister of Stale Elwood  Veitch's visit to the Sunshine  Coast last Friday.  In part, Ihe Koch brief states,  "We, the elected representatives  of the District of Sechelt, will  find lhat we will be dealing with  an organisation directly adjacent which moves outside our  sphere and influence."  He goes on to say, "We also  recognize lhat as Indian Bands  across the province gain more  autonomv ways musi be found  for them lo become a part of  the inter-governmental scheme  of things. In thai regard it is a  problem we share with other  municipal districts."  An example of the problem  of Indian independence given in  the brief Is lhat Ihey waul lo extract Iheir gravel, their way,  with a conveyor bell. "Il will  travel for some distance passing  near Ihe Regional Hospilal and  a developed residential area lo a  barge loading slaiion. There is  concern over noise, dust, and  devaluation of property  values."  One solution suggested by  Koch is ihe transporting of the  gravel through ihe middle of  downtown Sechell on barges  through a canal. Bul he states,  "It does nothing for ihe Band  other than an alternate means  for moving their gravel."  So he has another solution.  He wants io put the canal  through Indian Band land.  "This would directly involve  the Band and as such they could  presumably collect transit fees  along with the district as a  business venture benefitting all  parties including the province,"  he says.  But no longer being wards of  the state, the Sechelt Indian  Band appears to be quite content in what they are doing and  have declined participation in  Koch's ideas. "We may need  the help of the province to encourage the Band's participation," he states.  The only native Indian present at the hearing was Sechelt  Band member and SCRD director for Area 'C, Stan Dixon.  He was not impressed. As a  former chief who fought hard  for independence he stated  privately to Ihe Coasl News that  he would not like to see the  Band give up any more land.  "The Sechell Indian Band  worked over 15 years to gain  freedom from the federal Indian Act because it was suppressive", said Dixon. "The  SIB can now develop its own  resources, but at its own lime,  and be a part of free enterprise.  The SIB has approximately  3,000 acres bul lo me it  represents approximately one  million dollars per acre if il is all  used in Ihe best manner possible  for the Sechell Indian Band  membership."  Dixon went on to point out  the Band had already voluntarily given land in ihe past for such  uses as the very hospital Koch  mentioned in his brief and a  right-of-way for the highway  servicing Sechell.  At the conclusion of Sechelt's  presentation, read out by a Mr.  Burns, in Koch's absence,  Elwood Veitch said Ihe province  had already signed an agreement with the Sechelt Indian  Band but would co-share a  feasibility study for a canal based on Ihe original concept  through Sechelt.
