 LEGISLATIVE LIBRARY  Parliament Building-  Victoria, B.C. V8V 1X4  9|.8  s defeat Forestry spraying  by Rose Nicholson  The first round of the battle  to prevent the spraying of the  herbicide Vision on blocks in  Wilson Creek, Roberts Creek  and Langdale went to opponents of the spraying, but  their victory was a short-lived  one.  The Forest Service had announced the spraying program  would begin last Tuesday,  September 25, so members of  the Sunshine Coast Environmental Protection Project  (SCEPP) made plans for a prolonged 'dawn to dusk vigil' at  all the spray sites.  Bill Wishlow of the Forest  Service and Brian Williams and  his crew from the Abbotsford-  based company, Western Weed  Control, were met by some 20  SCEPP protesters when their  pickups, with tanks that  allegedly contained Vision, arrival at the site at the top of  Field Road in Wilson Creek.  SCEPP's numbers were soon  augmented by about 30  residents of the surrending areas  who were all determined to see  the spraying halted. They had  all the earmarks of everyday  people seriously concerned  about their health and welfare.  Bill Wishlow's on-site claim  that "Vision is safe, I use it on  my own lawn," was greeted  with such rejoinders as, "If you  want to spray it on your lawn,  that's your business!" said one  woman. "Don't tell me what is  safe!" echoed a man eating  soup from a field Mt. "I go to a  great deal of trouble to buy  safe, pesticide-free food for my  family and I don't want them to  have to drink poisoned water!"  cried a woman with a child in a  back carrier.  As the verbal confrontation  continued, elements of the weed  control crew went to work with  machetes and brush saws. The  spraying was held off because,  said Bill Wishlow, "It was too  wet."  The protesters greeted this official explanation as a 'cop-out'.  They wanted the spraying  cancelled completely, not just  postponed.  Early in the afternoon, Mel  Scott from the Forestry office in  Burnaby and Paul Harper, the  local Field Office Supervisor,  arrived at the site. After a  lengthy discussion with the protesters, Scott agreed that they  would confine their efforts to  manual brushing and would  hold off on the spraying as long  sis there were people on the  sites. "If they leave, we'll start  spraying," promised Forestry  Official Ron Greshner.  "But they may try to remove  us legally," Carole Rubin (of  SCEPP) later told this reporter.  This fear ultimately proved  groundless.  But in spite of Forestry  assurances not to spray as long  as people were on site, late on  Wednesday afternoon crews  went in and sprayed at the  Grauman Road, Lockyer Road,  and the B & K Road sites, aware  of but deliberately ignorning the  presence of the many protesters.  "There's a lot of angry people here," declared Ron Short-  house, "and I'm one of them."  Shorthouse and his family  live on Grauman Road, and  thdr water supply will be directly affected by the spraying.  Employed at Howe Sound Pulp  and Paper, he is also a member  of the Canadian Pulp and  Paperworkers' Union. "We  passed a motion at our union  meeting last night," he said, "to  oppose the spraying of Vision.  Norm McClellan, the national  vice-president of the union was  there, and he supported our  decision."  An anguished Petra Detwiller  and her family also live on  Grauman. "Don't they realize I  get my water from there?" she  asked.  The rest of the group did not  have much to say, but much  was conveyed by the expressions  on their faces. By then it was  nearly dark, the spraying crews  had left, and protest leaders felt  theeere wasn't much point in staying any longer. "But we'll be  out hwe at dawn tomorrow,"  said a dog-tired, but 'dogged'  Carole Rubin.  On Thursday morning  residents on Lockyer and  Grauman Roads reported that  Forestry trucks had headed up  to the blocks, and soon after,  reports came in saying that  spraying had begun.  People streamed to the  blocks, only to discover that the  report was in error. The crews  on the site were using manual  methods only.  When Paul Harper (from the  Forestry) arrived, there was a  long discussion as to why Tuesday's agreement to hold off on  spraying had been violated.  Harper's argument revolved  around the actual location of  the protesters, claiming they  Please turn to page 14  Protestors gathered in Roberts Creek list week in a successfu  protest of the spraying of the herbicide Vision.

At (east for the foreseeable  future, developer Hayden  Killam \will have to satisfy  himself With building roughly  35 homes instead of the  150-plus homes he would have  been allowed had the requisite  bylaw changes taken place.  However, before the local  lawmakers dealt with the fate of  Gospel Rock, they chose to address themselves to Bylaw  600-6, an amendment to the Official Community Plan (OCP),  which was up for third reading.  Changes contained within  this 'package' amendment were  believed necessary by council  after the Friends of Gospel  Rock had challenged the  original Gospel Rock rezoning  bylaw (555-29). Further, opponents to the Gospel Rock  development voiced their belief  that the OCP was in direct opposition to the aims of the pro-  development forces.  Alderman Dixon addressed  his colleagues, worrying that, "I  am sure most of us around here  agree that the OCP amendment  suggested by our attorneys���for  future legal purposes���are not  as stringent as the wording first  Davis Bay resort debate  Majority of residents seem opposed  The Wilson Creek Community Hall was hot and packed to  the rafters, primarily with  residents who voiced deep and  wide-ranging concerns about  the impact of a proposed $3.5  million resort complex in their  Davis Bay neighbourhood.  After only three or four  residents had been heard, all opposed to the project on the  grounds that their cherished  ocean view would be badly  obscured, if not completely  eliminated, Sheldon Chandler,  the developers' architect, made  what amounted to a 25-minute  recap of the resort's virtues, and  a plea for its acceptance.  . Chandler outlined, using  multiple artists' drawings and  maps, virtually every aspect of  the three-storey resort. He  stated that every effort had been  taken to design a complex which  would be not only commercially  viable for his clients, but which  would also be aestheticaly pleasing to the community.  Ed Cuylits rose to his feet  wondering what might happen  "...should the resort owners sell  out and the residents be left to  the (possibly) less tender mercies  of new owners. Mr. Cuylits then  suggested that the existing  restrictive covenents be made  binding upon future owners.  A short time later, with the  crowd of about 50 remaining  sedately docile in their chairs,  an unidentified man (ailed out,  "Is silence taken as  agreement?" Cuylits rose again  to call on the crowd for more  participation.  A woman asked, "How (an a  three-storey building not take  away the vtew?"  Architect Chandler tried to  field the question by asserting  that "The trees were so .dense  along Whittaker...that the  ocean couldn't be seen  anyway." He added that the  view would be improved as a  result of the erecting of the  resort. "That's simply not  true," a man muttered.  Ms Eileen Nelson rose and  said, "1 personally resent three  storeys! I can see over the trees  and Casa Martinez." Then addressing Chandler, she added,  "And you say you spoke to the  residents about the impact of  this hotel?"  "I said we���meaning the corporate 'we'," replied a slightly  flustered Chandler.  "Chandler is missing the  point," argued Tom Harris who  lives on Laurel Road. "He says  it's (the resort) aesthetically  pleasing. But I'll be blocked! I  can see the lights of Nfmaimo  now���but I won't be able to if  they build this thing."  Feeling somewhat pressed,  architect Chandler made an  observation which struck this  reporter as somewhat threatening in nature. "It would have  .been a lot easier to develop the  building on the land which is  already zoned for Commercial.  It's ban 10 months now, going  the public hearing route. They  (Isobel and Dave Hayer, the  developws) want something a  bit rxtter than a box."  The Coast .News then asked  Chandler what the Hayers  would do should the bylaws not  be changed to allow their present plans to go forward.  Dave Hayer rose to his feet  and said that "We have beer  approached (in the past) to sell  (the land) and crackerbox  houses could be built on it.  Right now this could be done.  Phase turn to page 13  given to the powers of the community plan by our planner,  Mr. Buchan."  Alderman Reynolds then addressed the issue, saying,  "Although 1 am satisfied with  the general content and the in  tent of the OCP, I recognize  that it is to be a fluid document.  That is not to say that it is to be  changed at the whim of council,  but rather reviewed in its entirety every three to five years.  ���Please turn to page 5  Block Seven vote  Fifty-seven per cent of possible \olcrs in Sechelt, possible  Ihe heaviest turnout of all lime soundly defecated all aspects of  Ihe Block Seven development lasl Saturday.

The mayor defined Ihe family as a "fundamental unit of our  society, providing family members with nurturance, encouragement, and deserving of recognition and of public  policies which will ensure enhanced security, growth and  esteem."  History of Sechelts  In publication  -^���Vvl w''P*�����  During a brief press conference held prior to a council  meeting on September 27, the  Sechelt Indian Band and publisher Howard White displayed  author Les Peterson's "Story  Of The Sechelt Nation."  Beginning his research in  1952, Peterson's labour of love,  which started as a thsis, took  almost four decades before seeing the light of day. Publisher  White announced an initial  press run of 2,500, a figure  which caused a reporter to  wonder whether ihis was "a little low." White smiled and  assured everyone that there  were more books to be had, if  needed.  Chief Tom Paul accepted a  symbolic "first shipment" of  books on behalf of the Sechelt  Indian Band. Smiling with obvious pride and delight were  Band Council members Teresa  Jeffries, Ben Pierre, and Gary  Fesschuk.  Chief Paul mentioned that  the new book would be "...used  in conjunction with our Native  Studies Program." The Chief  added that two SIB Councils  (including his own) were involved in the evaluation and approving of the (latest) revised  manuscript.  White and Paul agreed that  "Story Of The Sechelt Nation"  is "very much L�� Peterson's  book ��� although he worked  with many other people over the  decades."

With any rising tide of protest, most specifically with  that now evident on the Sunshine Coast, there is inevitably  a counter groundswell of voices censorious of those who  would say "Nay!"  Inherent in the very act of protesting anything is a threat  to one form of status quo or another.  The Tetrahedron Alliance, for example, mounts a concerted effort to halt logging in a particular area. They protest in the name of wilderness beauty and sanctity, and  their message attracts attention and adherents.  But their very act of protest engenders opposition from  others who sense, rightly or wrongly, that their very  livelihood is now threatened. Their voices aic addesd to the  mix of logging and government response to their perceived  upset of an economic apple cart which, til now, had  bounced merrily along.  The residt is a public debate and discourse which is  healthy for everyone, most especially for those whose role  is to listen to the claims and counter-claims, sift them,  make sense of them, and then to decide, each man and  woman for him or herself, what personal stand to take.  This is the awesome part that responsible protest and  dissent have played in all truly free societies. To churn up  the muddy waters of complacency; to refuse to accept any  form of authority or its dictates on mere faith; to challenge  laws and lawmakers whenever these appear to cut against  the rights, health, and general welfare of the people; to exercise one's individual right (and societal obligation); to  scream lustily and long that "The emperor has no  clothes!"  To protest is a noble form of activity, but also one  fraught with perils minor and major. To protest is to stand  up and out in a crowd, at the possible cost of being shunned, reviled, rejected by friend and foe alike, or subjected to  physical assault and possibly death.  Which is why most of us tend to leave our protesting to  surrogates, to individuals and groups whom we support  emotionally, financially, or both. When their efforts and  courage pay off, we celebrate vicariously, as if we personally had been leading the charge.  Then comes the day when our own ox is gored, when  some protest appears to threaten some aspect of our own  personal or collective lives. This is when we discover just  what we are truly made of, when we face a moment of  truth and possible sacrifice.  Growth and change, the raising and illuminating of  human consciousness, the very fabric of who we are and  who and what we might become is born in protest.  When a single human being cries "I'm mad as hell and I  won't take it anymore!" and then proceeds to protest  some aspect of the human condition as he or she experiences it, we all suffer and we all benefit.  Responsible protest is one of the highest forms of self-  expression.  Stifling, muzzling, or snuffing it out is one of the lowest. .  f  5 YEARS AQO  The complaints of commercial fishermen, objecting to  the crowded facilities at the Gibsons Government Wharf,  has had the result that all pleasure boats moored at the  wharf may soon be ordered to leave. "This Is the law," said  Mayor Labonte. "Fishermen have the right to park boats at  the wharf and pleasure craft will have to move."  10 YEARS AQO  Historic Whitaker House In Sechelt is scheduled for  demolition this week.

Fo.eegn 1 yeae $40  1 do believe that it is absurd  for any member of Gibsons  Council to give the Coast News  the credit or the blame for the  defeat of the Gospel Rock proposal. I would point out to the  inflamed alderman that the first  public hearing was as crowded  and as eloquently opposed to  the development as the last. The  arrival of Jan Michael Sherman  at the editorial desk did not  create the opposition to the project. There was a while there  earlier this year when this paper,  without having taken an  editorial position, was being inundated with letters of protest  about the development, far  more than we could possibly  have printed.  Alderman John Reynolds*^  called me just before the fourth  and last public hearing into the  proposed rezoning of the  Gospel Rock Plateau. Or was it  the third and last? Does  anybody remember?  Anyway, just before the last  of several hearings held on the  Hayden Killam proposal, the  good alderman was highly indignant about the coverage afforded the matter by the Sunshine Coast News.  I allowed that I could see  where the newspaper of  September 10 might well  displease  Alderman  Reynolds  In our olfactory-repressed  culture, where billions are spent  every year to make 'bad' smells  go away, it is considered a  serious perversion should one  admit to smelling one's  underwear, and enjoying it.  Unless, that is, you're three  years old and your name is Andy the Barnyard. Andy's dad is  a veterinarian who was raised  on a farm, so the usual distaste  for and sanctions against certain, well, 'icky' smells, wehich  prevails in a majority of namby-  pamby Canadian households,  simply does not exist in Andy's  little corner of the world.  Which is why when I arrived  to take Andy to the petting zoo  and found him sniffing his  shorts, neither his mother nor  the housekeeper were at all  upset. After all, his mom grinned, when she'd wandered in  half an hour ago, Andy the  Barnyard was busy playing  connect-the-dots with a handful  of pellets graciously supplied by  A new level  of disgrace  and some other members of  council, but offered the opinion  that the community might be  more interested in discussing the  chronic imcompentence of Gibsons Council, rather than the  alleged imcompetence of the  Coast News editor just newly  arrived.  I further offered the unsolicited opinion that the handling of the Killam proposal had  been a fiasco from the beginning, and, since I didn't think  that this particular council had  done anything right through the  length of their time, spluttering  indignation about someone  else's supposed incompetence  ill-became Alderman Reynolds.  Just to be sure that I was not  being misunderstood due to an  excess of subtlety, I offered  Alderman Reynolds the free  opinion that no one presently  sitting on council deserved to be  there in 1991, though I certainly  recognize that proven incompetence is not necessarily a  bar to re-election where apathy  rules the majority and the close  organization and generous support of those with favours to  seek can see the most  demonstrably inept seated in  power.  During the course of our conversation Alderman Reynolds  allowed that if he ran again in  November it would not be for  alderman. Last week the man  who would be mayor gave us a  clear instance of who he is once  the veneer of self-satisfied complacency develops a crack. He  made a motion that the Gibsons  Council direct all of its advertising away from this paper  because, it would appear, he  was dissatisfied with coverage  afforded Gibsons Council.  Here we have a politician using the public purse as a weapon  to get press coverage that is  more to his liking. This is an  assault on the freedom of  speech and the independence of  local papers. I would expect  that there would be objection to  this blatantly undemocratic proposal - no, not undemocratic,  confoundedly anti-democratic  proposal, in both of the Coast's  newspapers this week.  To Alderman Reynolds I  would simply say, before any  organization with which I am  associated is moved to praise  such as you have proven to be in  office for its daily bread, I  would beg in the streets as a  more honourable alternative.  1 would also note that no  other local politician in my time  of awareness here has ever so  shamelessly threatened to use  Ihe public purse to purchase  favourable reportage. It is a  new level of municipal and  regional disgrace.  Reynolds' supporter was  Alderman Ken Collins. Suffice  to say that when Ken Collins  speaks of the emotionalism and  subjectivity of others, it is  laughable. The Coast. News,  before and since the present  management, has contributed  mr ��� positives to the Town of  Gio.ons than Ken Collins will  ever understand, let alone  emulate.

W.B. Yeats  A keen nose for reality:  Andy and Sweet Pea's revenge  his live-in rabbit, Sweet Pea.  Sitting on the edge of Andy's  bed, watching as he struggled to  make sense of his shoes, Sweet  Pea raised on his haunches and,  as they say in polite society,  broke wind. The accompanying  stench evoked a giggle and a  sympathetic string of farts from  Andy the Barnyard. (I later  learn that this is a sophisticated  form of inter-species communication, encouraged by Andy's parents, who, themselves,  are fond of baying back at the  coyotes from their hillside  jacuzzi).  Watching Andy's elfin face  beaming at me from within the  miasmic fog generated by Sweet  Pea, it occurred to me that the  smell of a barnyard is considered by those who frequent  them, to be something of an  aphrodisiac. It is tin exciting  melange of sharp and improbably-contradictory aromas and  perfumes, a collection of  constantly-mutating memory  prods which take us all back to  the barnyard ambimce of our  own childhood bathrooms.  Where, for bttter or worse,  some of our most significant  outlooks on life are conceived.  If one's parents were always  flitting about with a can designed to turn the natural bouquet  of a bowel movement into the  chemical equivalent of a pineapple plantation in Bora Bora, one  will readily come to believe that  there are 'good' smells and  'bad' smells.  For those poor kids raised in  an environment of masked  odours, for those who have  develop^ only negative associations to any and all pungent,  bodily emanations, it is difficult, indeed, to appreciate the  healthy bouquet of one's self  and one's partner during a  fiercely-contested round of  gardening. (To say nothing of  love-making).  But, as I helped Andy the  Barnyard gather up the Sweet  Pea pellets which had rolled  under the bed, it struck me that  the most crippling effect of being raised in a culture where  even certain odours are taboo,  is what it does to a child's  freedom of choice.  It deprives a child of deciding  for himself just what he or she  does or does not like about any  given smell. Labelling some  smells acceptable and others offensive, is to stringently curtail  personal choice and critical  judgement, to make the independent verdict of one's own  schnozz moot before the jury  has wen deliberated.  Andy the Barnyard and I  never made it to the petting zoo.  Andy had a slight accident in  the foyer, just .before we were  due to leave. Even at the tender  age of three, ego and self-  esteem are developed fully  enough to allow something as  understandable as a little loss of  sphincter control to cause one  to withdraw to one's room for a  good sulk.  As Andy the Barnyard stiff-  legged his way down the hall,  one of my old memory prods  whisked me back to the late  1940's when my brothers and I  would visit my Aunt Rose and  Uncle Harry's turkey farm.  After hiking around through a  couple of hundred acres of  turkey trot, Uncle Harry would  throttle a gobbler, and Aunt  Rose would immediately cook it  up with all the trimmings.  Sitting around their kitchen  table, my brother Kenny and I  would always make some oblique reference to the smells  around the place.  To which old Uncle Harry  would always grunt in New  England Stoic "Bahn-yahds  aren't intended for folks with  sensitive noses, or preconceived  notions 'bout life."  I intend to pass thi* little nugget on to Andy the Barnyard  when he gets older. He'll appreciate it. Coast News, October 1,1990   ��� ���m p�� _ ^^  LettCiS tO ttlC Editor      I Chief ������ response  " leeAe^ieMa-aejaajaejaMM���mi _-��� /      CHitaw *-"--- -���'  Support for school board  Editor:  An article two weeks ago in  the Press provide some very in-  teresting and somewhat  frightening insights into how the  Sunshine Coast Parents for  French (SCPF) believe the  world should operate. In the article, several quotes attributed  to Ms Findlay revealejd that the  SCPF seem to regard the  democratic process as an irritating and unnecessary institution that is frustrating its attempts to mold the education  system into its vision of the  world.  Ms Findlay, in a desperate attempt to deflect criticism for the  costs incurred by the school  board defending our school  system against frivolous  lawsuits, states that "the blame  should be laid with the school  board,"...(since)... "they chose  instead to go to court, and made  a decision that any cost incurred  was preferable to running the  program."  What the SCPF is in effect  saying, is that the school board  should have been intimidated  into submitting to the wishes of  a very vocal minority and  disregarding the wishes of the  majority. The school board had  no choice but to resist the action  of the SCPF. To do otherwise  would have meant discarding  the democratic principles on  which the government of this  country is founded.  The majority of the people of  the Sunshine Coast do not want  French Immersion, as  demonstrated by the fact that  only about five per cent of  students on the Coast ait  registered in French Immersion.  The school board is bound to  follow the wishes of the majority and thus had to fight the suit  brought by the SCPF. If they  had not, the school system  would then be taken over by  whoever had the most lawyers  or whoever could use the most  intimidating form of coercion  and the result would be anarchy.  The direct costs incurred by  the school board in defeating  this action, and those incurred  in the upcoming appeal will be  over $90,000. This does not include the indirect costs incurred  by the system by tying up  valuable management time  which should have been spent  on improving the overall education system on the Coast. The  money spent on the defense of  our educational system will  come out of the pockets of the  majority of the parents on the  Coast. Either that or every child  on the Coast will be deprived of  a portion of their educational  experience because of the actions of this group. The responsibility for these costs must rest  with the SCPF since they initiated the actions.  I do feel that the SCPF have  finally done what they should  have done years ago, and that is  starting its own private French  Immersion school. The province is full of private schools  established by groups who  wanted  to have a different  HANDS UP!  Show your hands to  their best advantage  FRENCH MANICURE $15  REG.

These people are not  trying to force their ideas on the  majority but are, as responsible  citizens, privately funding (with  some government assistance)  their own schools. That is their  democratic right just as it is the  majority's democratic right to  have its wishes implemented by  elected officials.  I applaude the school board  for its stand in defense of equal  opportunities for all students  and for staring down the very  vocal minority known as the  SCPF. By doing so they have  taken a very important step  towards improving the educational opportunities for all.  Every parent on the Coast  owes them a debt of gratitude  and 1 would urge everyone who  supports the school board's  decision to write a letter to the  board expressing confidence in  their leadership.

The  Sunshine Coast was mentioned  as an area that would be hit  hard because of its regional  district status.  Jeff Lee's article in the  September 21 issue of the Vancouver Sun entitled 'Rural BC  told to brace for huge tax increases' mentioned that municipalities have many ways to  soften tax increases due to rising  assessments by lowering the tax  rate or imposing a new flat tax.  Wc are powerless to do  anything about it here.  Although we can pressure the  government for tax reform, we  would surely be faced with a  . lengthy and frustrating process.  On an issue that saves us money  and saps government revenues,  they will surely drag their feet. I  feel we must act to expand the  boundaries of Gibsons to form  the Municipality of West Howe  Sound.  We must face the fact that  our close proximity to one of  the world's premier cities is now  bringing the inevitable development with its attendant increases in our property  assessments. I am not an expert  on taxation but it seems  reasonable to me that a  municipal government in West  Howe Sound could control tax  increases by drawing on a rapidly growing industrial tax base in  our area.  The present political structure  is not going to meet the needs of  rapidly growing Gibsons and  these expected tax increases are  a warning that we had better  review our options immediately.

The area was, in fact, cordoned off and signs were posted  indicating it was a private  firefighters' dinner.  3. Non-drinking fire crews were  on duty all night, who also  acted as area security.  6. The entire park was secured  by 1:45 am.  On a personal note, as a fire  department we take exception  to the "Don't Give a Damn Attitude" statement.  In closing, we thank, once  again for their tolerance, the  residents of Halfmoon Bay.

Historic note  Editor:  RE: Collins/Native Land  Claims Dispute.  According to Jeffrey Goodman in his book American  Genesis 1981, a series of  discoveries, mostly in North  America points to the astonishing thesis that beings like  ourselves, subspecies Homo sapiens sapiens, made their world  debut in the Americas and not  in Europe as has been conventionally taught. Further, according to Mr. Goodman, there is  not one piece of direct evidence  to support the Bering bridge  route theory.  No less than 28 verified sites  in North America support the  hypothesis that fully developed  man has been in the Americas  for at least 50,000 years and  possibly for as long as 350,000  years ��� far earlier than Homo  sapiens has been placed in  Europe, Asia or anywhwe else.  It appears then, that the  American Indians were the first  fully modern humans.  Kasandra Harfield  Roberts Creek, BC  More letters  on Page 21  Time is Running Out!

Squamish  Squamish Ford Sales Coast News, October 1,1990  Reynolds proposes boycott of Coast News  Alderman attacks freedom of speech  In a move which shocked and  dismayed some in attendance at  the Gibsons Council meeting on  September 25, Alderman John  Reynolds put forward a motion  that "...staff be directed to  place any required public  notices only in the Sechelt Press  newspaper until further  notice."  Apparently still smarting  from the failure of the council  to open the Gospel Rock property to high-density develop-  ment   by   Hayden   Killam.  Reynolds brought into the glare  of public scrutiny his long-  smouldering anger and resentment over what the alderman  perceived to be misrepresentation and bias in the Coast News'  coverage of the Gospel Rock  issue.  "I don't believe that the taxpayers in the town should help  support a newspaper which  spreads (misinformation) to the  town's detriment," Reynolds  fulminated.  "Making incorrect statements and alluding to one opinion as fact is just irresponsible  sensationalism,"   Reynolds  charged.  "I have b��n advised,"  Reynolds continued, "by three  other people on the Coast News  payroll, that the current editor  is new to the area, and it will  take a while before he understands the local situation."  While choosing not to reveal  his 'sources' within the Coast  News infrastructure, Reynolds  concluded his remarks by saying  that, "(Fair enough), when that  editor demonstrates that he can  report facts, whether they slam  or praise the town, we may wish  to reconsider using their advertising space."  Alderman Ken Collins spoke  out in support of Reynolds' motion. "Alderman Reynolds, I  think, has a point. I guess on  some of the hottest issues lately  1 have managed to get in the  'penalty box'."  Obviously referring to the  controversy swirling around  him regarding his novel ideas  and suggestions vis a vis Indian  land claims, Collins noted that,  "The subjectiveness and emotionalism that has run  rampant...has put a new name  on yellow journalism."  Said Collins further: "I know  that the tendency for both  papers (is) to get competitive  and to be pro-council or anti-  .���ouncil���to get their axes out  ind really grind them. Overall, I  would like to see maturity  brought to the process. I would  like to see a good reflation  on the community by the  papers."  Collins paused to allow his  remarks to take hold. Then,  summing up, he declared, "No  matter how bad we seem to be,  we're all you got right now."  Apparently referring to all  elected officials of Gibsons, if  not those from other municipalities, Collins concluded,  "Everybody's trying to do the  best job they can. If we don't  feel we are represented, we  should boycott the papers."  Alderman Dixon addressed  the issue with the remark, "I  would like to remind council  that the Coast News is the local  newspaper."  To which Mayor Strom  replied (to Dixon), "I am sure  that that all council members���as well as audience  members out there���are aware  of that fact."  When the vote was taken, it  found Reynolds and Collins in  favour, Kunstler and Dixon opposed.  Before casting her tie-  breaking vote, Mayor Strom  wanted all concerned to under-  I '1 Sechelt curtails speeding  stand precisely where she stood  on the issue of pulling all advertising from the Coast News indefinitely.  "I hate to say it," she began,  "but I would love to vote in the  affirmative with the two  gentlemen on this side (Collins  and Reynolds)���but I won't."  Then, without specifying why  she'd "love to vote in the affirmative", Mayor Strom stated,  "I'll be a little more diplomatic  than the Coast News has ebeen,  and 1 will vote to oppose the  motion."  Al Price, editor of the Press,  covered the meeting for his  paper and reacted to Reynolds'  motion and its implications: "1  always find it distasteful when  anyone uses financial pressure  to try and influence the editorial  content of a newspaper."  Coast News Editor Jan  Michael Sherman expressed  dismay that an elected official  "would see fit to mix personal  motives with public duty, by  trying to invoke the powers of  his position in service of his own  emotions and ambitions."  derman John Reynolds presents his controversial motion thai  Gibsons Council boycott the Coast News it last week's council  meeting.  Following up on recommendations made by the Engineering and Operational Services  Committee, Sechelt Council will  consider means to curtail  speeding near Big Maple Park.  Director Derek Ashfood proposed that a letter be drafted to  the RCMP with the suggestion  that 'photo radar', or, failing  that,  increased  law enforce  ment, be employed in the target  area. Ashford suggested that  should the 'photo radar' prove  to be a viable option, signs  should be posted warning  motorists, thus hoping to  discourage excess speed.  Alderman Michael Shanks  suggested that, for safety  reasons, perhaps a 'No Passing'  sign on Highway 101 (within  District Limits Policy) be  adopted with the possible exception of a straight stretch at the  west limits of the district.  Mr. Ashford will draft a letter to the Ministry of Transportation and Highways for their  comments and action, since it is  the ministry's jurisdiction.  How Well  Do You Hear?

Capilano Highway Services  PORT MELLON  FERRY  TERMINAL  GIBSONS  CAPILANO  HIGHWAY  SERVICES Cold water on mall  Gibsons refuses to provide services  Town Planner Rob Buchan  presented a report to council  which threw cold water on the  proposed Gibsons Park Plaza  Shopping Centre, scheduled to  be constructed at Highway 101  and Payne Road.  The developers Marcorp  Development Corporation,  have requested that their property be amalgamated into the  Town of Gibsons in exchange  for connection to the town's  sanitary sewer and water lines.  Marcorp would also pay a fee  of $135,000 (which is their  estimated cost for on-site septic  field and on-site storage of  water) to the town.  Mr. Buchan gave many reasons why this request should be  turned down, including the  necessity of amending the Of  ficii Community Plan and  Zoning By-laws. There was also  the difference in the commercial  zoning of the town and that of  the SCRD, where the land is  located.  Concerns were voiced regarding the current zoning, a lack of  access to a development plan,  and the design being not a mall  per se "but merely a strip-  highway commercial development along the all too traditional lines."  Parking, waste management  and road and highway actxss  have not been dealt with completely as of yet.  "I would suggest," Buchan  noted, "that in some way there  be improved liaison between the  town and the SCRD regarding  the anticipated rash of develop  ment applications which may  occur outside our boundaries  but yet which may be of direct  effect to the town."  It has twen counril's policy  that town services not be  granted to anyone outside of the  town, although interests certainly can apply to come into the  town. A mere application  doesn't necessarily guarantee  zoning.  Alderman Reynolds said: "I  would move that we write to  Marcorp and advise them that  we do not offer our sewer or  water services outside of the  town's boundariecs, and that we  cannot guaranty what zoning  will get on the successful inclusion in the town." The motion  wascarrie*d.  Killam denied development  continued from page 1  "The text of the OCP  amendment bylaw," Reynolds  continued, "was written by our  solicitors to address what is, in  their legal opinion, a conflict  between the OCP as it stands,  and the proposed rezoning of  the plateau above Gospel  Rock."  Although Alderman Lilian  Kunstler made it clear that she  felt council should not change  the OCP 'at this point', the motion was carrie*d, and the OCP  amendment was on its (rapid)  way to final reading.  First the council turned its at  tention back to Gospel Rock  directly and the matter of Bylaw  555-43. Speaking in favour of  the controversial zoning change  was Alderman Reynolds, initiator of the original proposal.  He read a prepared speech  which largely recapitulated all  the pro-development arguments.  But Reynolds' last-ditch attempt to sway minds and influence outcomes on the Gospel  Rock issue was in vain.  Speaking just prior to the  voting, Alderman Kunstler said,  "I feel that sufficient care and  attention has not been given to  the impact on the town. Particularly the cost of the services  which would be incurred. The  concerns of (people of) the surrounding areas should be considered. We are here, as Alderman Dixon said, to listen to the  people."  A final vote found Dixon and  Kunstler opposing the rezoning  of Gospel Rock, and Alderman  Reynolds casting the lone vote  in favour.  The final reading of the OCP  amendment was defeated in  what amounted to an anti-  climactic moment.  Tenders called for new ferries  Transportation and Highways Minister Rita Johnston  announced today that tenders  have been called for the double  decking and re-engining of  M. V. Queen of New  Westminster.  "The conversion program for  the vessel, which will be carried  out by a BC shipyard, is one of  the measures that the corporation has put in place to assist  them with the growing demand  for ferry services," said the  minister responsible for BC Ferries.  The plans include the addition of an upper car deck, which  will lye increased so that it can  accommodate recreational vehicles. The new deck will add 155  spaces to the vessel's current  capacity of 192. The re-engining  of the vessel will allow it to service the Georgia Strait routes in  the one and one half hour travel  time of the major vessels.  The minister said that the two  projects should result in 2500  man-months of employment  "This work will be in addition to the construction of the  two 85-car vessels and the 'S'  class vessels, as well as the refurbishing of the Queen 'o/'i  Chilliwack - all of which will be  carried out within the province  of British Columbia by British  Columbians."

I found a country where honesty and cleanliness prevail. I found a challenge  that affirmed I am not dead  yet."  That was Lauri Olenitis of  Wildwood Crescent, Gibsons,  summing up his tour by bicycle  this past summer on Iceland's  Ring Road.  Early in his tour Lauri had  his 70th birthday, a birthday  marked by a gift of a tarnation  from an Icelander whom he had  Season of mushrooms  by Bev Cranston, 886-2215  Either you love them or you  hate them. Mushrooms, that is.  It seems there is no in-between  with a fungus. I've tried. I really  have. Every time I throw a few  into a sauce or stew, all the  plates come back with them  pushed to one side, some untouched, some with a tiny nibble out of one side. And how  can some people eat them raw?  To me they taste like biting into  a dried up piece of dirt.  Even if you don't like to taste  mushrooms, they still can be enjoyed by observing them in the  wild and on your lawn. They  fascinate me. It seems every  year there are more varieties in  my grass and 1 seem to notice  them more now when I go for a  hike in the bush.  Mushrooms are fungi that  live off the waste of tree growth  when in a natural setting. The  cap and stem of the mushroom,  the edible and above ground  part, is really only the fruit of  the fungus that has reached the  air to disperse its spores. The  main growth of a mushroom is  under the soil and humus.  As plants use photosynthesis  to live and grow, fungi use what  is called their hyphae walls (the  underside of the cap) to secrete  enzymre and poisons on matter  to decompose and then absorb  along with water to nourish and  grow. This part of the mushroom is called the mycelium.  Mushrooms appear very fast,  within a few days caused by  rapid water intake. Most  mushrooms are about 90 per  cent water.  Roberts Creek hits a good  variety of mushrooms that are  found all along the West Coast  of North America. Here are  some that 1 have spotted last  summer, fall and winter:  Fairy Ring Champignon ��� in  the grass, very common, edible  and its underground parts can  live for hundreds of years;  Wood Blewit ��� big greyish  brown, flat with strong flavour,  grows from November to  March, sometimes you may  think you stepped on something  else when you accidently walk  on one; Field Mushroom ���  also in the grass, is white, edible  and has a nutty flavour.  Some forest mushrooms I've  seen are the Chanterelle ���  found around firs and alders,  with funnel shape, large, yellow  and very popular to eat; Honey  Fungus ��� found around fallen  logs and ferns, flat, brown with  a bitter taste; Oyster Mushroom  ��� found on stumps and known  as the 'shellfish of the woods'.  Psilocybe cubensis, a member  of the halucinogenic mushroom  family, according to the March  1980 Harrowsmith magazine, is  found in BC in the wild, the only area in Canada where it  grows, specifically the Queen  Charlotte and Vancouver Islands.  Apparently magic mushrooms have been used in  religious ceremonies for many  years, but very little is actually  known about their properties,  and toxic effects. Therefore the  powers that be, say be careful if  you use them. It is legal to  possess them in mushroom or  natural form only. The way this  ruling came about, was that you  couldn't charge someone with  possession unless you also  charge the owner of the proper  ty where the mushrooms grow  in their natural state.  Enjoy   your   mushrooms,  whether you eat them or just  like to look, as Roberts Creek  has lots of them.  VISION?  A temporary halt has been  obtained by determined and environmentally aware groups of  Sunshine Coasters as to the  spraying of the very suspicious  herbicide 'Vision', by the  Ministry of Forests in our own  very vulnerable Roberts Creek.

The Ring Road follows the  coastline, all 1436 kilometres of  it, and when .Lauri had covered  the daily distance his timetable  called for. lie set up his  homemade tent in a campground, or perhaps a hostel was  available. Once he snuggled  down in a wayside hut for  travellers set in a lonely area.  Lauri said that maps are his  favourite reading. In fact, he  has made maps, too, when he  was a forester in Finland and in  Saskatchewan. So one day, as  he idly thumbeed through an  atlas, and came across a small  scale map of Iceland, or Island  as the people of the country call  it, the idea of tackling the tour  around the country did not  seem an impossible dream.  The Detpartment of Tourism  in Iceland assured him that, yes,  a man of his age in good health  could comfortably do the tour  in the month of June.  A Christmas gift to himself  of an 18-speed, medium prioed  mountain bike started him upon  a rigorous training plan here in  which he rode a total of 1600  km including an mended run  on Vancouver Island with full  packs and tent.  "On May 291 left for Iceland  with the blessings of my wife,  Solveig, my bicycle boxed as  cargo, on the flight to Iceland's  main airport, Keflavik, by way  of Frankfort."  Lauri  took  time to  view  Reykjavik, the capital where  half the country's small population lives. At his first hostel he  inquired where he could secure  his bicycle at night and was  told, "There are no thieves in  Island (ees lund)."  "Hardly a chimney in the city; thermal springs provide hot  water heating. A tree's a rarity  there. The streets and the country as a whole look scrubbed-  ctean.  "A pleasure to slowly cruise  the city's streets on the bicycle,  or to walk the sidewalks, or  drop in to a cafe...The city is  not in any way a tourist trap."  Which direction to go around  this country? "I chose clockwise  btxause that would take me  through the populated areas  first so that in cue I played out  enroute I would at least have  seen the more important  regions. A lucky choice too,  since on 75 per cent of the trip  there were tail winds. With the  open barren sections of lava,  and others of sterile sand flats  the wind was a force to be  reckoned with. Once or twice I  was swept clear across the road  by gusts. Two English cyclists  told me they often had to push  thdr bikes to avoid this hazard.  "June was very cold," said  Lauri. "Lined gloves were a  necessity. Even with my Stan-  fields, a sweater, toque, and so  on, I was still cold in my five-  pound sleeping bag.  "Then, cycling in shirt, wind  breaks, and long prats, 1  found myself sweating going  uphill and freezing going down.  Cycling shorts were superfluous. Very dependable  weather there���uniformly, cold.  "The 60 per cent of the Ring  Road that is blacktop is superb  ���not a bump or a pothole  anywhere," Lauri said. "The  remaining stretches of gravel are  another story. Where the  downhill runs on the blacktop  wetre done with joyous abandon  with air resistance for brakes,  the downhill gravel runs required full brake pressure front  and .back to contend with the  ruts, rocks, and so on. The wide  tires of my mountain bike were  a saving grace."  Lauri met all manner of touring travellers; cyclists, hikers,  and those bussing and camping,  as well as motorists.  The country is largely  wasteland; lava fields, sand flats  in the high mountain valleys  and at the foot of glaciers or  jokuls.  Lauri found that English was  spoken by many visitors and by  the people of Iceland. An  Icelandic girl of eight years said  she learned English from the  television.  Lauri has plans in mind for a  cycling tour of Newfoundland  in 1991. In the meantime he will  do some sailing in the boat of  his own design that he has just  finished building.

VON 3A0  885-4490  Sechelt Seniors  Fountain of Youth  by Joyce Ostry  Shirley poppies, annual  scabiosa and coreopsis, and  should be well established by  the time cold weather comes.  Rambling roses are pruned  this month, cutting the downed  canes out completely, and tying  the new ones of this season to  take their place.  The Vancouver Rose Society  suggests that potash be sprinkled around rose's dripline at this  time, its purpose to harden the  stems for winter. All leaves are  stripped off in late October,  especially if you have black  spot, and disposed of, not put  on compost heaps, so as to not  re-infect the soil, and picking up  all that fall to the ground.  The Sechelt Garden Club  welcomes new and old members  and guests to their meeting on  Wednesday, October 3 at 7:30  pm in St. Hilda's Church Hall.  The speaker, Dianne Evans, will  speak on 'Herbs' and their uses.  Ponce de Leon, the early explorer of Mexico and Florida,  spent a major part of his life  looking for the Fountain of  Youth. There are those who are  still looking. .Some people think  they have found it in miracle  compounds, special diets or  magic exercise machines.  You do not need gadgets that  heat up (your heating pad is still  okay), belts that vibrate or any  other gimmicks advertised in  magazines or newspapers. They  are unnecessary, expensive and  sometime dangerous.  To feel good and look good  you have to move and improve  your own machinery; there is no  substitute.  Reputable exercise clubs are  useful but only if you use them  enough to justify the costs. Visit  a club which you can conveniently attend regularly. Before  signing for a membership check  to see that instructors ate  qualified. (Forget about the  fancy-looking diploma on the  wall. Check these schools out  with your local registered  physiotherapist at your nearest  hospital or treatment centre).  Be sure the fitness programs  are appropriate for your needs.  Distrust any that offer instant  weight loss or effortless fitness.  Getting into shape takes time  and effort, not money. It may  take six weeks, three months, or  a year to regain a good level of  fitness. Once there, try to stay  there with regular activity that  you enjoy. No pain - no gain  doesn't apply to the seniors. We  have time to regain and enjoy  the easy way.  The Fountain of Youth is not  found in pills or mysticism. It is  found right under our noses in a  healthy lifestyle which protects  the body from deterioration  with the passing of time.  I have copies of exercises  published by authority of the  Minister of State, Fitness and  Amateur Sport.

I guess if you don't have to  look at the mess you don't care!  Today when 1 drove past the  one located down by the Peninsula Market there was an old  chair and boxes of garbage on  the ground. Isn't there a law in  BC about littering? This is  definitely littering and I think  maybe it's about time that  residents start reporting local  people they see who use these  containers.

Health care blues  Editor:  What on earth is happening  with the health care system in  our province?  Thursday, July 26, 1990 my  husband went to the Emergency  Ward of St. Paul's Hospital  from Gibsons.  Emergency admitted him  around 6 pm, got him settled,  then told my daughter and  myself we could leave as we had  a ferry to catch.  At 10 that same evening he  phoned to say the hospital had  turned him out on the street as  there were no beds.  He is a senior who could  hardly walk, in pain and maybe  facing amputation of some toes.  We had brought his cane home  as we had left him in the  hospital or so we thought. So  there he is in slippers, suitcase in  hand, out on the street and  nowhere to go!  The social worker, bless her  heart, phoned hotels, YMCA  and bed and breakfasts but no  beds were available.  Around 11 pm we were able  to get in touch with a cousin in  Vancouver who went and got  him.  We were fortunate. What of  people who have no relatives in  town?  1 cannot believe how hardhearted and cold-blooded the  health care system is becoming  due to funding cutbacks.  Something has to be done to  change this happening.  If there were no beds available why weren't we told in  Emergency? We could have at  least brought him back home  while the ferries were still running.  V.

On that same  evening there is an open house  at the school where everyone  will be welcome. This is a good  chance to mix with friends and  neighbours as well as to meet  the staff.  If you have not yet taken the  opportunity to visit this school  you should take advantage of  this opportunity. Staff are  always pleased to show you  around this most delightful  facility.

Almost everyone  I know says this is their  favourite time of year and I'm  inclined to feel the same way.  Nature's visual changes  heighten the anticipation of  winter.  A tip of the hat to Bill Hall  for keeping the grass at the Egmont Community Park trimmed the way the geese like it.  Martin Mees, Egmont Community Club President, would  like to thank everyone involved  in toiling over the turkeys for  the very successful Community  Harvest Supper. Thanks also to  those who brought their  delicious contributions...and  just maybe a little thump on the  head to anyone who needs a  reminder to bring something for  the dinner to help make the  meal stretch a little further.  Sue Cook would like to let  everyone know about the incredible fashion finds available  at our very own thrift store,  which is open every Wednesday.  Drop in for coffee and take advantage of some homebaking  too. 1 also heard a rumour that  the thrift store may have extended hours this winter so  watch for that.  The next coffee house is tentatively scheduled for sometime  in mid-October so keep an eye  out for further information on  that.  The Public Health Nurse will  hold a clinic in the Egmont  school on the second Wednesday of each month. Call  883-2764 for more information  and watch for a notice on the  bulletin board at the post office.  Just a friendly reminder that  we are still in forest Are season  so, if you smoke, use your  ashtray; and if you don't  smoke, just be careful.

MEETING  The Halfmoon Bay Recreation Association got together  for a meeting last Thursday  where plans were made for their  annual Hallowe'en dance. This  will be on Saturday, October 27  at the school. Tickets will be  available soon. The arena is also  being booked for a skating party some time before Christmas  which is free and open to all.  This group is very active in  raising funds and working  towards such items as  playground equipment. They  sponsor children's ball teams  and are active in the Country  Fair each year.  Their load has become a bit  heavy, so a Parks Committee  was present at Thursday's  meeting to offer help in the  planning and presenting of proposals for improvements to our  parks.  AT WELCOME BEACH  Starting this week there will  be painting, sketching and  drawing for all artists who like  company when they work. This  will be every Monday afternoon  from 1 until 4 pm.  Next week, starting Tuesday,  October 9 and continuing every  Tuesday,   Wednesday   and  Portable  Toilet  Thursday thereafter, shuffleboard evenings will be held.  Please contact Hersey Sewdl at  885-3130 or the Grimseys at  885-9860 for the new lists.  Already in progress, but still  open to new players are the  bridge sessions on the first and  third Ftrdays of each month.  Likewise Cards of Fun days are  the second and fourth Fridays  of the month.  A THRILL  There's excitement around  our area these days as we are  having the pleasure of watching  and listening to the strange  sounds coming from some  Great Blue Herons' nests close  by. It sounds like feeding time  at the /oo when the parents feed  their young.  Now it's even more thrilling  as we watch the adults giving  flying lessons to the young as  they venture out of the nests.  One adult escorts one young  fellow and there is a great deal  of shouting and instruction in  the process.  It is quite some time since  these magnificent birds have  nested in this particular area  and we hope that' they will  return and continue to nest so  close by.  I hope that by now you have  all taken down your hummingbird feeders so that the hummingbirds can still make their  way south.  fzmmtZ  ������**  ��                     -Am        a*.  &,  m                    ,    "          V.

There are almost 200 beautiful  kiwis presently hanging on the  vines in his garden. It has taken  10 years for the plants to produce in such great quantities.  Last summer there were quite a  few, but this year has gone  beyond his greatest expectations.  Normally these only grow in  fairly tropical climates, and  although they will not ripen outdoors here, they will be taken in  and allowed to ripen. The fruits  are of a particularly good quality and are much bigger than last  year's crop.  John did the pollination by  hand, and uses only natural fertilizers such as fish heads and  seaweed.  Few of us have ever seen  kiwis on the vine and this is a  good time to drop by at Strad's  and see for yourself how they  grow. This gardener will be  pleased to show his accomplishment.

Pender Patter  Beware of brush fires  by Myrtle Winchester, 883-9099      ,urned imo a ^^ fire-  This is not a good time of  year to burn brush, as 18  volunteer firefighters in the  Ruby Lake area will testify after  spending about four hours  Thursday night and very early  Friday morning battling an out-  of-control blaze that could have  The Ruby Lake Volunteer  Fire Department was established only this past June, and this  was their first time. All equipment supplied by the Forestry  Department worked just fine, as  did all the volunteers. Congratulations.  Resort debated  continued from page 1  But we want something special  for the area."  Several residents wr.*d thdr  concern about parking facilities  and the availability of alcoholic  beverages in the resort. One  man stated bluntly that that the  developers had planned for the  absolute minimum number of  car stalls, and would be in big  trouble down the line when it  became apparent that 72 parking spaces (based on the  development being considered a  'hotel' rather than a 'motel')  would not be sufficient to handle the influx of guests, visitors  and staff.  As for the worry over booze,  Isobel Hayer assured the crowd  that "We have no intention of  putting in a pub. And if we sold  out to some new owner, they  couldn't have a pub either,  without going through the  S��helt Council." Then, straying slightly from the point, Mrs.  Hayer implored those in attendance to "Help us! Work with  us on this project."  Mrs. Hayer, nee Martinez,  grew up in Davis Bay, and, as  she has throughout the process  of attaining clearance to erect  her resort, has made personal,  emotional appeals to the current  residents of the area.  But insofar as this public  hearing was concerned, roughly  20 people spoke against the  resort complex, and only one  person (businessman Vic  Walters) felt moved enough in  the other direction to praise the  resort, calling it "a project we  should be proud of."  The hearing was marred by  only one slight procedural  misunderstanding. According  to the rules, speakers must  stand, identify themselves, and  state where they live.  At one point a smallish man  with a feisty nature failed to  state his name and address, and  immediately began addressing  the issue.  "What is your name?" asked  Mayor Tom Meredith politely.  The man bristled: "What's  your rame?" he demanded.  "Meredith!" quoth the  mayor, his resonant baritone  easily cutting through the  laughter.  "Well, you asked me my  name���so I just thought I'd ask  Wilson  calls for  cargo safety  BC Liberal Leader, Gordon  Wilson, in a brief meeting with  Highways Minister Rita  Johnston at the Union of  British Columbia Municipalities  convention last wesek, has requested the installation of a  hazardous cargo sailing between  Langdale and Horseshoe Bay.  Wilson suggested that such a  sailing could be accommodated  by a once weekly trip of the MV  Howe Sound Queen and asked  that Ms Johnston request of then  BC Ferry Corporation that they  immediately investigate the  logistics of such a move. Wilson  said that Ms Johnston was noncommittal, however, assured  him that the matter would be  looked into.  He further commented that it  is ironic that many of the goods  prohibited in bulk find their  way onto the Coast in smaller  quantities in private vehicles.  "I fully support safety  measures that regulate against  hazardous cargoes on board  passenger ftnriets. However, in  addition to safety concerns,  there are many merchants on  the Sunshine Coast who are suffering because of necessity of  barging prohibited goods to the  Sunshine Coast. What is needed  is a sailing to accommodate  those businesses that depend  upon the transportation of  goods considered hazardous."  Wilson said that he will  follow up on his conversation  with a direct appeal to the chairman of the board of the BC  Ferry Corporation.  you yours!" the man replied,  somewhat mollified, identifying  himself.  Now officially recognized, he  proceeded to demonstrate how,  bv his fiscal reckoning, the  resort couldn't possibly make  any money (based ona$60a  day room rate), but would probably go bankrupt in short  order.  "You are not speaking to the  bylaw," gentled Mayor  Meredith. "Whether the  development makes money is  none of this council's  business."

Under considerable pressure, he once  again agreed to hall the spray,  "for today."  "I want that in writing!"  Maria McCartney of the  SCEPP feistily retorted.  "We don't feel we can trust  you now," added Steve Cohl.  "You told us you wouldn't  spray, and you have. We want  assurances that you will not  spray at all."  "For today," repeated  Harper. "1 don't have the  authority to go further than  that."  With some difficulty, paper  and a pen were produced, and  both Harper and McCartney  wrote out separate agreements.  Rut when the time came to sign,  Harper tried to bargain. "What  will this buy me?" he asked.  "Will you let him (Brian  Williams, the contractor) go in  with his gas cans and saws?  That's whal you've always  wanted, manual brushing."  This led to another long  discussion, with the still-  growing crowd of residents insisting that past assurances had  been worthless. The  beleaguered Harper did his best  to remain calm. Trying to walk  the tightrop of not giving in to  demands, while at the same time  trying to appease by tossing  crumbs to the crowd.  "If you can't make the decisions, we want to talk to so  meone who can," Cohl insisted.  "Why can't we talk to Barry  Mountain? If he's the one who  has to make the decisions,  where is he?"  Barry Mountain, the district  forester in Powell River, whose  responsibility it is to rule on the  use of Vision, had seemingly  vanished from the scene, even  his own people being (apparently) unable to contact him.  Harper didn't seem to have  the answer to Cohl's query  regarding Mountain's whereabouts, but he agreed to get in  touch with Mike Lister, operations manager in Powell River,  who 'may have some answers'.  At that poinl, he .and the rest of  the Forestry crew left, but he  still hadn't signed the agreement.  At a meeting late Thursday  afternoon at the Roberts Creek  Community Hall, Harper told  the assembled crowd that he  had been authorized to give a  verbal assurance that there  would be no more spraying for  the remainder of the current  contract.  "They were not prepared to  give us a written agreement,"  said Carole Rubin. "They said  it would set a precedent for the  rest of the province.  "But we will continue to  monitor what's going on."

The motion further called for  the regional district to demand  that "The provincial government reassess the process of herbicide and pesticide use that  discriminates against communities, regional districts and  individuals who are affected."  "This is the most serious  issue .'.'icing us right now,"  declared McGillivray. "The  health of our citizens, particularly those who get their  water from streams and wells, is  seriously threatened."  There was approval from all  the directors, and the motion  passed unanimously.  On Friday morning, SCEPP  members were informed that  Gerry Kennah (Barry Mountain's immediate superior) was  prepared to provide written  assurance thht there would be  no more spraying this fall on  any of the blocks covered by the  current contract.  Donna White, who with  others, unsuccessfully attempted to block the spraying with a  legal appeal in June, has in her  possession an "...interesting  piece of evidence, indicative of  some of the attitudes in the  Forest Service."  The printed sheet is headed  'Raommended Measures to  Reduce the Risk Level'. Below  is a handwritten comment  declaring, "The degree of fear  and ignorance in the local  population is terrifying. There is  a group that seem to oppose any  action within the forests. We  are entering the dark ages. Did  you know that Vision is one of  the 10 most poisonous compounds created by man?  Hopefully the people who  believe this will gain some  enlightenment at the appeal  hearing."  Under pressure from the  SCEPP the Forest Service has  called a public hearing to  discuss the Vision issue on October 4 at 7:30 pm at Chatelech  High School, but members of  the group are angry that the  meeting was scheduled for after  the spraying.  Total victory, at least for  1990, came to the SCEPP and  its supporters Friday morning,  September 28, in the form of a  letter from the Ministry of  For��ts.  The use of herbicides on the  six contested cut blocks will not  proceed in 1990.  But as one anti-Vision protester noted philosophically:  "There's always next year.  They'll be back and we'll be  here waiting for them!"

Second Section  Wells visits Sunshine Coast  Over 500 hear Newfoundland premier  Newfoundland Premier Wells shared the podium with BC  Liberal Leader Gordon Wilson in Sechelt last week.  ���Rose Nicholson photo  by Rose Nicholson   : I   The Honourable Clyde  Wells, Premier of Newfoundland, spoke to a crowd of over  SOO in the pavilion at Rockwood  Centre last week, and it was obvious that Wells' part in the  Meech Lake talks has earned  him the support of many people  outside the core of regular  Liberal supporters.  He did, of course, as a good  politician, put in a plug for BC  Liberal leader Gordon Wilson.  "Western Canadians", he said,  "should move in and take control of the national Liberal party if they want to be a force in  Ottawa."  Wells, in contrast to what  British Columbians have  become used to in a provincial  premier, did not rely on  dramatic techniques to sway his  audience. Instead, he spoke in a  low key, articulate manner and  clearly spelled out the issues facing Canadians in this post  Meech Lake period.  "Balanced government has  been missing in our country for  125 years," he stated. "The  future of the government (in  power) is dependent on maintaining the support of the majority in the House of Commons and the majority of the  iTMZZfl  11 MORE THAN CLOTHINC  MORE THAN CLOTHING       1/     II  3~.-s.i~l, Some Original Designs  10,30 ��� 4,30        r^=^====  J^otvntoum dxobtits. deck  8X5-741'   SSSmW  mew 1 unm TOwmoMH  ONLY 1 LIR  Corner North & Read Roads, Qlbsons  Vou 71 be plmantlj inrprtttd.

"Our problem is we don't  have the balancing mechanism  we should have in the Senate,  where there should be equal  representation from every province. They should be elected  and have the effective power  (spread across the country). Until we achieve that we will never  get any fairness and balance in  this country and the national  policy will always be developed  in such a way as to promote the  interests of the two largest provinces in central Canada.  "If we keep going the  way we have in the last  40 or SO years, in the  next 40 years, Ontario  alone will have the  majority of the  population."  "It doesn't matter if they  were Tory or Liberal or NDP.  In the end they would have to  answer to the nearly W per cent  of the members who come from  Ontario and Quebec. It is simple fundamental political  mathematics. We have to find  the means of balancing that  overwhelming power in the  House of Commons so that  from here on in when national  policy is being developed it is  acceptable not to the majority  of people, but to the majority of  the provinces."  He advocated that pressure  be brought to bear on the  government by joining the  power of the 32 seats from the  Atlantic provinces with the 88  seats from the Western provinces.  "If we keep going the way we  have in the last 40 or 50 years, in  the next 40 years, Ontario alone  will have the majority of the  population. But it would be  equally wrong to have a vote  only on the basis of an elected  senate and ignore the majority  of the population."  Wells was critical of the trend  of separate blocks within the  country working to effect constitutional change.  "I don't believe we can  achieve anything by dividing the  country into four or five blocks.  Our chances of achieving a  unified consensus on a constitution that is acceptable to all  would be virtually nil if every  block tries to develop its own."  Wells maintains that there are  three fundamental principles  necessary for the unity of the  country.  First is equality of every  citizen in the country, provided  for by representation in the  House of Commons.  Second is equality of the provinces, which is supposed to be  provided for in the senate.  "And that," he said, "is the  fundamental failure that has  resulted in a lot of our economic  difficulties and virtually all of  our constitutional difficulties."  Third is equality of cultural  and linguistic groups. "The  country is based on two major  linguistic groups." he declared.  "That is what we are, we cannot  ignore it. Quebec has legitimate  concerns. They have a different  language, a different culture  and a different judicial system.  "I believe the way to solve  that is to provide for a separate  vote in the Senate so that the  Quebec senators can vote on all  constitutional changes affecting  language, culture and judicial  matters for Quebec.  "I do not believe it is  necessary to create a special  status for Quebec and alter the  whole balance of confederation.  I believe we can do this if we  work through a national forum.  "In the end, the interest of  the whole country must come  ahead of any one single group."  KERN'S  HOME  ���y wk  FURNISHINGS |SL    ���,^  u 16.

To Jack of Clubs Lake and beyond  by Peter Trower  Wet)* is envelop<ed by fog  when we wake. It has tipt<oed in  from the lake to blur the  buildings. At the restaurant, we  strike up a conversation with a  young miner who has brought  his wife and child into this up-  and-down economy. He loves  the country but regrets that his  job takes him away from home  during the week.  We set out for Barkerville,  passing through boggy tundra-  like terrain along a winding  road. The fog thins out but  there is a noticeable drop in  temperature as we near the  famous relic of goldrush days.  Yvonne remembers the place  when it was an unreconstructed  ghost town that still boasts a  few die-hard inhabitants. After  disillusioning experiences in  other historic spots such as  Dodge City, I am anticipating  some sort of bogus re-creation  like a western movie set, design-  en! strictly to lure tourists. We  are both pleasantly surprised  Barkerville has been left  largely in its original state.  Some reconstruction was  unavoidable but it has been  done unobtrusively to retain the  pioneer atmosphere. There are  no jarring modernisms to spoil  the effect.  Most of the original log  buildings are still standing, as  they have stood since  stagecoach times. Because it is  the off-season, the ghost town is  spookily, and appropriately,  deserted. In the pinching early  morning cold, it is like stumbling through a time warp. As we  enter these precincts of another  century, we pick up an unexpected companion.  The cat  comes mewing welcome at us  through Ihe chill  a small custodian  the only dweller in this hollow  town.

Apart  from a bit of logging and mining, the town derives much of  ils summer revenue from its  proximity to Barkerville, which  has no tourist accommodation  of its own. Gassing up, we head  west again. But we have two  more brief stops to make before  we rejoin the main highway.  The first of these lies on the  upper side of the rpad, just east  of vanished Wingdam. The  mouth of the trail is marked by  a small sign. It leads to the  grave of a miner named Blessing, murdered back in the gold-  rush era. Yvonne recalls coming  here as a girl to read shuddery  detective stories beside the grave  in the quiet clearing. The one-  man cemetery is well maintait.-  ed by the Cariboo Historical  Society.

Nothing remains of the place  now except a government plaque and a windowless two-  storey building that was once  the Lightning Hotel.

EVENINGS  il.c (75063)  Your guide to  the finest in  area dining  A listing of  restaurants  and pubs  liwt  otfteCoMt  Irvine's Landing Marine Pub has elevated the quality of 'pub food' to new  heights. In fact, save for the friendly, comfortable atmosphere, you tend to think  that you're sitting in a rather fine restaurant.  I recommend the special, sight unseen, regardless of what it is. Having had  many of Mark's specials, I feel qualified to make this dramatic statement. Thursday evening I enjoyed the best���absolutely the best special at Irvine's Landing that  I have ever had, but I'll tell you about it later. First things first.  Irvine's Landing Marine Pub sits overlooking a dock and little bay where commercial fishermen, sports fishermen, and pleasure boaters come and go about  their business of catching fish or the spectacular view that the shoreline affords.  Ah, here's the appetizer. Succulent scallops wrapped in bacon, dripped with the  juice of a lemon wedge. Impossible to make them last. Impossible to describe the  wonderful flavour.  Now, the special. Alaskan Black Cod, poached to tender, smokey-rich perfection. This is one of those fish dishes that makes you feel like you've discovered  some kind of culinary secret. Complementing the fish, broiled potatoes and  steamed broccoli coveted with a layer of melted, tangy, Swiss cheese. And finally,  a real treat for restaurant fare, garden-fresh spaghetti squash. Dinner-plate garnishes rarely are worthy of mention, but in this case I can't resist. In addition to a  crisp sprig of parsley, the plate was completed with a slice of sweet honeydew  melon.  Now, since we are in a pub, it seems appropriate to end a wonderful meal with a  very special coffee. The Bill's Ark (named after a local boat) is a combination of  Grand Marnier, Amaretto, and Anisette, and if you (like me) don't care for  licorice in anything, Harvey can be persuaded to substitute Amaretto for Anisette.  This, with whippeid cream and everything else that makes an after-dinner coffee  drink so good, is the perfect way to end a perfect meal.

Having had a one week  break and some thoughts to  dwell upon from the first week  of play, the Pigs made yet  again, an overseas venture into  Vancouver.  Week three saw the Boys in  Blue take on the newly  amalgamated Ex-Brits/Lions  Club. Having this kind of integration can only mean a  wealth of bodies with experience to choose from for  weeWy matches.  The Ex-Brits/Lions have  been fortunate to pick up some  lads touring the world. They've  bolstered their ranks with Kiwis  from down under. These fellows definitely know their way  around the rugby pitch.  Anyways, enough dribble.  On to the game. The enthusiasm of all is still high and  energetic. On this day, with the  huge difference in talent and experience, this was to be a real  learning environment. Eh,  Brent? Anyone for mushed  Canuck? .Although giving it  their best shot with the personnel available: (A lot of young  raw talent just yearning to be  developed), the Boys in Blue  came out and from what the  coach has surmised, tried with  valiant efforts to match their  opponents' abilties.  Being overmatched and not  having (as yet) the team unity,  the club struggled through both  halves. Inefficient tackling was  a big hole in the team's defenses  j and the opposition was able to  flow unstopped through our  lads. The Pigs unfortunately  came out on the raw side of the  score. Ex-Brits/Lions 45, Pigs  0.  With positions still not yet  determined and also a lack of  players to fill full sides for each  weekend, there goes out the call  for all those who have played or  not to come on out and participate in the best team sport of  .' all. No kidding, I've been doing  '. it for 18 years.  We  practice  on  Tuesday  ' evenings  at   Chatelech  and  ��� Thursday evenings at Elphin-  " stone. Both nights we start at 6  pm.  | The fellows, however remain  confident and are looking for-  ' ward to some home field advantages raming up over the next  three weeks. That's right, we  played on Saturday, the 29th vs  Kats. Also we have consecutive  home game*s on October 6 and  13. Watch for the sign on game  day. Kick-off is at 11:30 am at  Elphinstone.  One last note for all you dan-  cin' type Pig followers - the  GRC is having a Hallowe'en  Hog Bop on October 27 at the  Roberts Creek Hall with live  band favourites the Grames  Bros. Tickets are $13 and are  available through club members  and a few spots around town.  Hope to see you there and in  costume.  fine effort by both sides this  week, Kats 11, Pigs 8.

SC Golf it Country Club  Cedars Pub supports junior golf  by Frank Nanson  The numbers of the Sunshine  Coast Golf Club and the people  of this Coast community overall  wish to extend a big thanks to  the Cedars Pub for their financial support of the Junior Golf  program run by this club.  Each year for the past several  years now, they have put up  funds helping to support the up  to 40 juniors that take lessons  each year. In addition, some of  the more advanced juniors attend a number of junior tournaments around the province.  Without the support provided  by this pub many of the juniors  would be held back in their efforts.  One of the trays is now in line  for training as a professional at  a California college. Matthew  Chalmers is going around in  under par at times, others are  doing very well for their age and  will be heard from soon.  The September 18 ladies first  flight winners were Marion  Reeves (net 66), Dody Grant  (net 68) and Isabel Rendleman  (net 71). Second flight was won  by Pat Vaghan with a BB9 of  71, along with Vi Gibbons and  Marg Ross. Mary McKinnon  took the third flight with a net  69.  The winner of the Fraser  Senior was Virginia Douglas  (175 gross) with Dody Grant in  second place with a 176 gross.  The Hewdry Sraor winner  was Dody Grant with a 176  followed by Jean Dean with a  193. These are two round totals  of course.  The two day low net score  was taken by Mary McKinnon  who shot a net 138.  The 9-hole ladies played for  the Bette White Low Gross  trophy which was won by Marg  Bevan, followed by Gladys  Warner and Thelma Manning.  The senior men had 75 out  for the second to last organized  day of play before the snow  flies. The worst teeun of the  groups had a need for tees and  were pleased things worked out  in their favour. The team was  composed of Bob Williams,  Frank Nanson, Jim Nielson, Al  Heaven, and Doug Gillett.  Jack Knaus, Glynn Davies,  George Kubata, Bill Skelcher  and George Pare managed to  win the low net prize. They were  followed by Roy Scarr's team of  George Bayford, Art Kiloh,  Bert Hobbs and Roy Taylor.  Paul Smith was closest to the  pin (which is under dispute by  another senior who thought he  had won until the disputed shot  by the big guy).  This senior did have the  honour of beating out Vic  Vaughan however, and earn told  I may never be invited for tennis  at Vic's court again as punishment!

The parents for French alleged in court that they were not  given a fair chance to provide  sufficient input into the decision  making. However, their physical demonstrations at the  school board office and their  threats to some trustees least  year, the public meetings of the  school board and the kilograms  of letters and written submissions and petitions, belie the  fact that the Parents for French  did not have an opportunity to  provide such input.  Because of the huge cost of  the law suit the school board is  now placed in a very difficult  financial situation. Its budget,  based on block funding, does  nol allow for such expenditure.  Good  Editor:  It was good to hear that the  rezoning application for the  Gospel Rock land was turned  down.  We would like to congratulate council on Anally  deciding to abide by the wishes  of its community and not some  out-of-town developer.  If we want to attract new film  business to replace the  Beachcombers and maintain  tourist appeal then retaining the  ambience of our town is  economically very important.  Dorothy M. Cruice  Millicent B. Wilson  Thanks  Editor:  Robert and Doris Wilkinson  of Madeira Park would like to  thank Dr. Amiel for stopping to  aid at an accident at Middle-  point on Wednesday morning,  and the nurse from Vancouver  who was most helpful in  stabilizing the injured leg until  the ambulance arrived, and to  . Dave for changing our truck  tire, and the many helpful people who assisted with phone  calls, etc.  It was also most gracious of  the staff at the Ministry of  Forests who allowed us to use  their phone to contact relatives  of the injured at Cumberland.  R. Wilkinson  Burned  Editor:  Sunday, September 23, 7:45  pm, I was enroute to the Sechelt  hospital with my toddler who  had received a bad burn. I was  unfortunate enough to get  behind a car that failed to pull  over and let me by. The people  in the car were totally oblivious  to my emergency flashers,  honking horn and flashing  headlights.  1 would like to let these people know that you made a long  trip to the hospital even longer.  Highway 101, as everyone  knows, is very windy and was  hard for me to make a pass.  S.D.S.  Its options are either to reduce  the service and facilities to our  school children by SIS per  pupil, or to secure funds  through a referendum next  April.  As you know, the Pareaits for  French, are appealing the decision of the judge and final costs  might very well exceed  $100,000. Hopefully the school  board will then be compelled to  go to a referendum and can find  out how taxpayers and parents  of English educated pupils fed"  about frivolous court cases  brought against a democratically elected board which is entitled  to make responsible decisions  about schooling in our school  district.  The voters in our school  district can, of course, take  matters into their own hands  and withdraw support to those  trustees who seem to be in the  pockets of the parents for  French!  W.L. Nanson  Jaws of Life  Editor:  As the section of Highway  101 from Secret Cove to tiarls  Cove is very hazardous at the  best of times; as you and your  family travel this road on a  regular basis; as the Pender  Harbour Volunteer Firefighters  are responsible for rendering  assistance to the ambulance service at motor vehicle accidents;  we would appreciate your help  in obtaining a set of 'Jaws of  Life'.  The Pender Harbour Firefighters recently purchased a set  of air bags at a cost of $3000.  These are useful for lifting  vehicles or equipment off of a  victim, moving a steering wheel  column to extricate a driver and  many other life saving duties.  Now we would like to order a  set of Jaws of Life to be .better  equipped for all potential situations. The cost of a full complement of Jaws equipment is in  the neighbourhood of $30,000.  To date we have collected  $9000. These funds have been  raised by soliciting donations  from all residents, legion, service clubs, and the firefighters  doing bartender service at local  functions.  Now we hope that some of  the corporate users of Highway  101 will help us achieve our goal  to provide better rescue equipment for all. When you contribute to the Pender Harbour  Volunteer Firefighters  Emergency Equipment Fund  (PHVFEEF), we will issue a  receipt for tax purposes, have it  mentioned in the local press and  publicize your name to the best  of our ability. Please send your  cheque to Box 304, Madeira  Park, BC VON 2H0.  I thank you in advance for  your generosity, and remember:;  The life we save may be so-'  meone you care for.

For example a person who  stipulates "no children" as a  condition of rental would be in  violation ol the Family Status and  the Human Rights Acts. The  landlord who places the advertisement and the newspaper  which publishes it would both be  in contravention ol the legislation  and could have a complaint filed  against them. The Coast Newt  will therefore not accept such  discriminatory ads. #TFN  Roberls Creek Hall avail.,  dances, parties, weddings.  equipmenl renlal. Yvonne  885-4610.

In a nutshell  Louie the  all-night Greek  by S. Nutter  Louie's convenience store  and lunch counter stayed open  all night in Toronto, at the corner of Church and Isabella  Streets. This was less than three  blocks from CBC headquarters  and studios on Jarvis Street,  and Louie's patrons would be  very largely show biz folk. In  the 50s and 60s, it is likely that  better than 50 per cent of all the  people involved, or seeking, or  merely hoping to be involved in  the early days of television were  living, or 'visiting', or otherwise  lurking within three blocks of  Louie's place.  Over some years that I was  about there, mostly the 60s, this  population of Louie's patrons  was, it seemed to me, almost  constantly moving. I lived a  block north at Church and  Charles, but then I also lived  down the street for a while, and  sometimes along the street.  Hardly a weekend would go by  without someone wanting your  help to move his ton or so of  dreadful old ironware couch out  of some inaccessible eyrie into  some equally impossible basement. On regular moving days,  May and November, U-Hauls  would run into each other, and  lines of artist/porters, carrying  lamps, mops and pails, small  sofas, etc., would get entangled  at the intersections.  Louie's, at the geographic  centre of this caravanserie, was  hardly an oasis of peace. In the  afternoons maybe, when the  floating population would be  mostly at the Everene  (Neverclean) Pub; but after  hours there'd be hardly an hour  before dawn, when the restless  ranger would not find one or  two at the stools, and often  they'd be stacked up chattering  against the walls.  Behind the counter was 'the  Macedonian', older and wiser  perhaps than anyone there. It  seemed the Macedonian's  greatest pleasure was debate.  He would debate anything, bul  wanted it done quite formally:  you said your thing, then he  said his. His greatest displeasure  was shouting matches, but he  had a way of quelling these.  Also he could come up with  good ideas. Writers attempting  to finish scripts at his counter at  3 or 4 am sometimes had reason  to bless the Macedonian's muse.  Rex, for example, a beginning writer, ex-hard rock miner,  football player, boxer, etc., was  sleeping most nights on a couch  in an apartment next door to  Louie's, known generally as the  Ponderosa. It was a rangy two  storey popular place hosted by a  well-known actor now of this  town.  Rex one night wandered into  Louie's at something like 2 am.  There was only one other person, a burly usually silent type  he'd seen around before. He  looked like a wrestler, had been  noticed and given the nickname  'Grunt'. The Macedonian introduced them saying, "This is  Rex, the writer."  "Writer eh?' said Grunt.  "Would you want a job?"  He took him a few steps up  Church Street and into his  house. It was dark in there  because Grunt had 'an argument with the hydro*. He lit a  hurricane lamp and guided Rex  to a desk, a chair, a typewriter  and a pile of paper. "What it  is,"  he said,  "is a script!"  He wanted a rewrite of  something he had which had to  be, he said, "in New York next  week. We'll need about 200  pages," said Grunt. Rex said  okay. Grunt peeled off $100  and handed him the MSS. It  was about 20 pages long.  Rex settled in, filled out this  Western story, and dropped  down to Louie's and the  Macedonian when stuck. These  'script conferences' of course  would sometimes go on amid a  general hubbub of people like  Francis Hyland, George  McGowan, Hughie Webster,  and whoever. Anyway Rex got  the thing done in time for it to  'get to New York'.  Later, Rex was checking in  with an independent producer,  Howard Fletcher, who was set  up in a coach house just down  Isabella. Well, said Howard,  there's this writer, D'Arcy  something or other, who's got  to live around here somewhere 1  think. He keeps sending me  scripts, and I ask him to come  in, but he never does. There's  one here you might have a shot  at rewriting.  He pushed it across his desk  to Rex, and it was of course the  one he'd just done for Grunt.  Fashion show  'Native Women in Business'  is a group of seven women, including the coordinator who is  from the Sechelt Band, who are  participating in a Small Business  Entrepreneur program. This  course is sponsored by the  Sechelt Indian Band and CEIC  in affiliation with Burnaby College and CPU Computer Services.  This program is designed to  provide training and work experience to six .Sechelt Band  members. Upon completion,  they will have acquired sufficient theoretical and practical  skills   to   launch   thdr   own  business ventures. By the end of  this training program each  trainee will have researched and  developed her own personalized  business plan.  lt was decided that a practical  way to highlight the skills find  expertise of the group would be  to hold a fashion show which  will coincide with Self-  Government Day celebrations.  This show will include exclusive  fashion designs from Pam  Wooden of North Vancouver,  and Sylvia Joe of Sechelt. For  further information please call  885-3800.

PATRICK CHARLES SLINN  Executor  By: W.C. G0RHAM  ITS SOLICITOR A look at yesteryear  Coast News, October 1,1990  25.  Blue grouse a vanished species  byWHJoWlmi  How many of you rraders  ���have seen a blue grouse?  So far as this area is concerned they are practically extinct.  Yet before the white man came  with his destructive antics to the  ecology, they were here in fantastic numbers. Some of the  stories that oldtimers told of  their abundance were almost  unbelievable.  There is one story about  market hunters going to hunt  them with two shotguns. The  idea was that when one gun got  too hot they would use the  OttlCT.  Anotlwr story wits told about  a market hunter on Bowen  Island with connections to a  hotel in Vancouver. They were  putting up a banquet for a large  delegation of easterners and  would order 90 brace (180  grouse) a few days ahead and he  would supply them.  In my childhood, they were  still around in numbers, though  rapidly diminishing.  The life history of the blue  grouse is quiet interesting. In  the spring, the 'hooters', as we  called the males, would come  down from the mountain where  they had .been all winter, and  presently one would hear them  hooting in a very characteristic  way to attract the females.  A sight that was rarely seen  was a hooter displaying with the  lady friend nearby apparently  paying no attention to the strutting and other antics of 'his  nibs'. The male would be decked out in his finery with two attractive circles, one on each side  of his head. His neck was yellow  at that point so the centre of the  circle was of that colour.  Around it was a wide band of  pure white and the outside rim  of the circle was black.  Apparently his foreplay and  ���h :ir lovemaking produced  results for in due time hens  could be seen with their broods  of little chicks. These little gaffers were just little balls of  down, their wings much too  small for flying.  Later on in their development, when their wings were  strong, they could fly away, but  at this stage they had to resort  to other tricks when danger  threatened.  One day I was running  barefoot down an old skidroad  when, rounding a bend, 1 came  upon a family of these young  grouse scarcely 15 feet away.  The mother sharply said  something in grouse language,  no doubt a danger signal, and  then fluttered away as if to draw  my attention to her and away  from her brood.  The little ones skittered hither  and thither in a manner confusing to me and all disappeared in  the scanty ground cover in no  time.  I went carefully forward so as  not to step on any of them, intent on finding some of them.  After some searching I found  one under a leaf. There the little  tike was, just a ball of down.

Long time residents Judy  Gill, Bruce Woodsworth, Pixie  Daly and .Nan MacFarlane.  share personal memories of a  time when the Coast was a truly  rural area, separated from the  big city of Vancouver by a three  or four hour boat trip, a place  comfortable and content with  its isolation.  Bruce Woodsworth's father,  J.S. Woodsworth, who was  later to found the CCF Party,  came to Gibsons Landing in  1917. Woodsworth's memories  are of early pioneers like George  Gibson, Dr. Fred Inglis, the  Fletchers, the Hopkins, the  Granthams, the Weingardens  and the Winns.

Send your entries to reach the  Coast News, Box 460, Gibsons by Saturday of this week. Last  week's winner was Jesse Glassford, RR#1 S5C1, Gibson VON  IVO.  At the end of what had been  a rather desultory, housekeeping meeting on September 25 at  the Wilson Creek Community  Hall, a seemingly innocuous action taken by Mayor Tom  Meredith ignited a few sparks.  Meredith announced that he  had appointed a "ritizens' committee" to look into every  aspect of the roles and  remuneration attending to the  positions of alderman and  mayor.  Meredith said that Peter W.  Crawford was to be chairman,  and that the rest of the commission would consist of Maureen  Clayton, Dean Butler, and Ron  Shindell. It was apparent from  the mayor's straightforward,  even casual broaching of this  particular piece of business, that  he had not anticipated anything  other than "Carried" from the  other members of council.  But both Aldermen Graham  and Reid were incensed.  "You jumped the gun!" said  Graham, alluding to the fact  that the mayor had spoken to  the would-be commissioners  before even bringing the subject  to the council's attention.  "It's not your prerogative to  do this!" Reid chided Meredith.  Meredith, becoming defensive and more than a little combative, shot back that as far as  he was concerned he'd done  nothing more than he was entitled to do as mayor. Then he  stood and seemed to be about to  either walk out, declare the  meeting over���or both.  "Don't rail-oad the  meeting!" said R.*d, to which  Meredith, almost surprised to  And himself on his feet, sat  back down and said, "I'm not  railroading anyone!"  Reid noted that "I could vote  for any one of these four people  but it's doing it on your own  hook..."  Alde-rman Graham, although  somewhat intimidated by the  mayor's blustery persona, stood  by his guns. "You are preempting council by initiating  matters and appointing committees���and this is bypassing  council. We should have been  approached first."  A quick vote was taken, and  the matter of the new "citizens'  committee' was carried over to  the next council meeting.  The hands in the air to vote  were barely back on the table  before Mayor Meredith had  gaveled the meeting finis, and  stalked away from the table.  Revltallzatlon  Martin Thomas, provincial government representative, met  with Aldermen Reynolds and Kunstler during a 'downtown  revltaltzaUon' workshop hdd last week at the Union of BC  Municipalities conference. The second phase of revilalization  for the Gibsons Landing am was discussed.  Qramma'B hour*  In an application lo the Liquor Control Board, Gibsons  Council was asked to support Ihe changing of the business  hours of Gramma's Pub from 11am to lam lo 10am lo 12  midnight. The local RCMP detachment has also been asked  to outline Its views and .sccordlng to the staff comment,  "L..am assured that Ihey have no objection whatever to an  earlier opening and closing."  Gibsons won't join EDC  The SCRD Economic Development Officer called the town  to inquire about the town adopting a resolution regarding joining the Economic Development  Commission (EDC).  To that end Alderman Reynolds moved, "that we send a  letter to the SCRD stating that  due to current circumstances we  are not going to be interested in  participating at this time."  Alderman Dixon spoke  against the motion, "1 personally look at it as a business venture that I feel down the road,  will pay great dividends to the  /^"DEPENDABLE  Town of Gibsons. It is, I feel,  something that could help this  municipality."  Alderman Reynolds added,  "I am a little disappointed that  we find ourselves in a position  where we can't join the EDC. I  feel we shouldn't be joining the  EDC, as much as I say now,  and have always said that  economic development is a  strong regional matter. We left  a door open for the future and I  still hope that one day we can all  walk through that door."  "I do as well hope that one  day we can be again with the  regional district on economic  development." Mayor Strom  added. "There were only a couple of things that could not be  worked out between the  regional district and the Town  of Gibsons and Sechelt."  Alderman Kunstler said: "I  also have concerns that we are  losing out. And I hope that in  the very near future we will be  able to take part."  A split vote then took place  where Mayor Strom cast the  deciding vote to reject joining,  voting with Aldermen Collins  and Reynolds.  ton for everyone!
