Array Legislative Library  Parliament Buildings  Gloria, n.C. V8V 1X4  The Sunshine  Published on the Sunshine Coast        25'per copy on news stands     May 2,1988 Volume 42 Issue 18  The Ritz Motel in Gibsons receded inlo local history lasl Sunday  wilh a flare. The Gibsons Volunteer Fire Departmenl organized this  controlled burn as an exercise in tire control. Developers are hoping  lo build seniors' housing on Ihe site. ���Vera Ellioit pholo  Funding from senior governments?  Canal study underway  A major, nationally recognized engineering Arm, Acres International, has been hired by  Sechelt Municipal District to  undertake a feasibility study of  a canal through downtown  Sechelt, the Sunshine Coast  Regional District (SCRD) board  heard last Thursday. John  Burns, who has been hired as a  technical consultant for the  mayor of Sechelt, was at last  week's board meeting to outline  the study and answer any questions the directors might have.  -: Burns told the directors that  Acres International have been  instructed to complete the study  following 10 specific guidelines:  1. The canal parkway must  be shown to be a 'people place'  where the local citizens and  tourists come for enjoyment. In  this regard the finished project  must be pleasing to the eye; exciting to those interested in  boating and waterways; provide  amenities for the public; have  easy access to the area and  around it and in general be an  attractive focal poinl of attention.  2. The canal should be  designed to be a paying business  venture. This aspect must include a listing of potential users  with an estimate of value to  them and fees expected;  estimated tourism increase;  spin-off to local business; and,  revenues to be expected from  (ease and/or sale of land or  facilities adjacent to the canal  parkway.  3. The canal and possible  concurrent water flows must  enhance water quality in the Inlet; provide increased salmon  enhancement; have little or no  negative effect upon waler fowl  and olher animal life in the Inlet; and, in general be an environmentally acceptable alternative to the existing situation.  4. The engineering model of  the canal parkway should allow  for scale reduction with subsequent cost estimates should certain commercial size facilities  prove too costly for projected  revenues. For example, it may  well be that a 20 or 30 foot wide  canal primarily for recreational  boating in the Inlet as well as  salmon enhancement is the only  financially feasible alternative.  5. The canal parkway should  not alienate any significant sector of the local population. In  this regard concensus should be  obtained from the elected  representatives of the District;  the Sechelt Indian Band; the  business community; or, the  populus in general. Input from  these sectors should be a part of  the study.  6. The study should assess all  possible governmental involvement, and where such exists  determine potential monetary  input for construction. This  would be Ihe federal government who control the waterways; the provincial government for increased mineral or  forestry royalties as well as lease  and   sale of lands in the Inlet.  7. The study should recommend some form of 'canal  authority' to operate and maintain the facility. The cost should  be estimated.  8. The completed sludy must  be in such a format that those  interested m financing the vett-  ture can readily determine that  such an expenditure would be  worthwhile. If it appears that  governmental participation is  the only possible method of  funding, the social benefits such  as jobs and tourism as well as  life style need to be strongly emphasized.  9. The study should be complete enough so that any decision to proceed does not depend  upon a further study. In other  words few, if any, questions remain to be answered for any in-  -Vfested funding organization.  10. Finally, an effort should  be made lo avoid complex  technical terms at least in the executive summary, conclusions  and recommendations. The  basic premise of the reporl  should be designed to be  understood by the average resident of the Sechell area since  ihey are the ones mosl affected  by the decision.  Please turn to page II  Assumes economic role  Buchan back in Gibsons  Both Gibsons and Sechelt  have now grown to the point  where they need their own  municipal planners, so Sechelt  will be hiring a full time planner  of their own.  At present, they are sharing  Rob Buchan who is primarily  hired by Gibsons and who leases  his services to Sechelt for one  day a week. On top of that,  Sechelt has been privately hiring  him for an additional day a  week.  For Buchan, this has not been  easy.  "1 must admit juggling the  two municipalities has been a  strain and I am excited at the  prospect of being able to concentrate on one job," Buchan  told the Coasl News Friday.  Two municipalities mean two  different sets of bylaws, two  separate and distinct councils,  and entirely different development needs. As well, for  Buchan, il has meant an excess  of fifty hours work each week  and back-to-back evening council meetings.  School Board  trims budget  Part of his additional duties,  when he is scheduled full-time  in Gibsons, is to devote half a  day per week to economic  developmeni which, in ihe eyes  of bolh Buchan and Gibsons  Council, is as much a planning  function as a political one.  "I'm dealing with economic  development on a day lo day  basis anyway," said Buchan,  pointing oul that he is dealing  every day with developers.  Buchan is also hoping that  later in the year some funds can  be made available and earmarked specifically for economic  development. He staled lhal he  had some projects in mind  which could effect a major impact al a minimum of cosl and  would establish Ihe credibility  of ihe function.  He is slated to return full lime  lo Gibsons some lime in July.  In Sechelt  New boundary  proposal meets  SCRD concern  In November of 1987, Sechelt  Municipal District applied to  Ihe Minisler of Municipal Affairs for a further boundary extension which would incorporate a significant seclion of  Area C of Ihe Sunshine Coast  Regional District (SCRD). Last  Thursday evening, directors  finally received a package of  correspondence regarding the  application between the Sechelt  Indian Band and the Ministry of  Municipal Affairs. The information came from Area C  director Stan Dixon.  Although the boundary extension would involve lands currently under the jurisdiction of  the SCRD, they specifically include the area which has been  leased by Sechelt Aggregates  Ltd. for a gravel extraction  operation in conjunction with  the Sechelt Indian Band. In a  letter to Rita Johnston, Minister  of Municipal Affairs, Steve  Roik of Sechelt Aggregates requested, 'We would appreciate  being advised of the progress of  the Sechell Municipality request, since it could have significant impact on the Sechell Indian Band-Sechelt Aggregates  Ltd. joint development proposal.'  Having perused Ihe correspondence, Area E director  From EDC  Jim Gurney suggested that the  SCRD send a letter to the  Minisler of Municipal Affairs  pointing out that, while Ihe  regional district does not feel its  interests are affected by Ihe application, the interests of the  Sechelt Indian Band may be  significantly affected and no  boundary change should happen until ihe Indian Band completes the legal process of  becoming the Sechelt Indian  District.  He also expressed some confusion as to the reason for the  request, poinling out that there  is no tax revenue from the area.  Alderman Bob Wilson, who  represents Sechelt Council on  the regional board explained the  municipal district's position.  The area, he said, should have  been pari of the original restructuring in 1987, and Sechelt is  basically attempting to tie three  separated areas together.  "It could be said," he conceded, "that we're after  royalties and control over the  gravel extraction. I could talk  all night trying to convince you  that thai isn't the reason but I  probably wouldn't be  believed."  The SCRD board voted to  send a letter to the Ministry  staling their position.  Peterson scores  lack of funding  Gibsons Alderman Norm  Peterson appears lo be upset  wilh Ihe Sunshine Coasl  Regional Districl (SCRD) for  Iheir decision nol lo renew Iheir  contract for services with ihe  Gibsons Chamber of Commerce, which helped finance the  operation of the tourist infor-  malion booth in Gibsons lasl  year. Al lasl Thursday's  meeling of the SCRD board,  Peterson accused Ihe board of  'slapping the Chamber of Commerce's wrist' in retaliation for  the Town of Gibsons' wilh-  drawal from Ihe Economic  Developmeni Commission  (EDC).  Director Jim Gurney denied  that the decision was a punilive  gesture and explained thai with  the withdrawal of funding for  the EDC by Gibsons and  Sechell, ihe money is no longer  available for these kinds of services. He suggested, however,  lhal Gibsons Chamber of Commerce will be invited to submit a  proposal for participation in  any projeel which the EDC has  budgeted for this fiscal year.  "Essentially, you're nol going to give Ihem any money?"  Peterson demanded.  "They may comracl services  for projects budgeted by the  EDC," Gurney repealed.  "We're nol slapping wrists. We  don'l have Ihe money."  Ombudsman here  The Office of ihe Ombudsman has been conducting an  inquiry inlo Ihe aquaculture industry in B.C., and on May  It), Michael Skinner, a represenlalive from lhal department will be presenl al the Foreshore Advisory Task Force  meeling lo answer questions and receive input from lask  force members. The public is welcome lo attend ihis  meeling lo be held ai ihe regional disirici offices in Sechell.

The Board of School  Trustees, after much deliberation at last Tuesday's meeting,  voted to cut the budget for the  1988/89 year by $100,000. A  bid to increase the cut to  $200,000 was defeated. Trustees  were sharply divided on the  issue, and several members of  the public voiced opinions for  and against the larger cut.  New Secretary-Treasurer,  Tim Anderson, reported that  the Ministry of Education had  recently allocated a grant of  $96,(542 for computer funding  for the district. Capital Plan approvals by the Ministry also included the expenditure of  $359,520 for maintenance shop  replacement. This will undoubtedly have some effect on  the efforts to return the present  Maintenance Shop to its  original function as a community hall as hoped for by the Gibsons Heritage Society.  In other School Board news,  a letter from Roger Douglas,  President of the SCTA, and  Lynda Olsen, President of  CUPE, requesting that the  Board alter its policy and provide smoke-free staff rooms was  not received favourably by  Trustees. "Surely", said Al  Lloyd, "the staff can work this  out without the Board being the  heavy. This actually calls for  building an extra staff room in  each school."  The District has been assigned a full time Monitor for the  French program for the coming  year, and $7,588 has been  received from the Ministry of  Education for the Pacific Rim  Teacher Study Program.  Martyn Wilson, Principal at  Elphinstone, provided the  Board with a survey of student  achievement on provincial exams. With the exception of  Algebra 12, students in the  District compare very  favourably with the provincial  average.  Last Wednesday sludenls from bolh Elphinstone Secondary and Gibsons Elementary participated in the  annual milk run lo raise money for The Lions'Crippled Children Fund. ��� Ken Collins pholo  ���taAMatfatfMMakaaMiB  ^^^tt________M  fr^^'*J-''"J--"*-*' A*./,**-*>^HM��n��g>����iv-��r^v��.-A>ji Coast News, May 2,1988  Comment  Still searching  for the  Hearts of Gold  For the pasl several weeks we have been running advertisements for Air Canada's Hearis of Gold Award.  The aim of the campaign is to recognize those individuals, often the unsung heroes of a community, who  have contributed to community life over a period of years  without fanfare and withoul seeking acclaim.  The response so far has been gratifying, particularly  from the Sechell area bul ihis is not the kind of competition in which there can ever be too many nominees.  If ihere is someone that you know of whose kindness to  olhers has been exemplary or whose community efforts  over the years have been unstinting, by all means drop us a  line naming the individual and giving a short recital of the  reasons why you feel Ihey should be nominated.  This world will never have too much kindness in il and  whal Ihere is deserves lo be recognized and congratulated  in any way we can. The Coast News is delighted to be pari  of a national efforl to reinforce the positive elements  amongst us.  The B.C. and Yukon Community Newspaper Office  tells us lhal ihere is a private contest taking place belwecn  our province's community newspapers and Ihose of Nova  Scotia. It's fifty pounds of B.C. salmon againsl 100  pounds of Nova Scotia lobster that wc gel more nominations than Nova Scotia. Let's have the people of ihe Sunshine Coast do their share lo make sure that our Hearts  of Gold are as well recognized in this province as  anywhere in the country.  It may be of interest lhal former Sechell Chief Stan Dixon leads all local nominees ai the moment with mosl letters  paying tribute lo his work towards the independence of the  Sechelts and his continuing care and honouring of the  elders of his people.  His is a most worthy nomination but ihere are other  oul there who have also served wilh steadfast distinction. Let's do them and ourselves a favour and have  them nominated for recognition.  ...from the filet of the COAST NEWS  5 YEARS AGO  A 350 ton freighter, the Tyee Princess, ran aground on  a reef just off Keats Island in the Gibsons Gap last Saturday, while heading up the coast with a cargo of freight for  Bella Bella. Just shortly before ::oon and about an hour  before low tide, an eye witness saw her coming back  through the gap, taking on waler fast before she beached  immediately below Gibsons Bluff.  A spokesman for the firm which operates the Tyee  Princess said, "I have been advised that historically there  have been problems with a reef in the area of the gap at  low tides, but the hydrographic people don't seem to  know about it, although the locals do."  10 YEARS AGO  The  Ministry  of  the  Environment  has released  a  sanitary survey of Pender Harbour and has recommended that recreational and commercial development be  restricted due to heavy pollution in the harbour.  15 YEARS AGO  What is happening to Coopers Green? The question  was asked at last week's regional board meeting. To  date, according to what the board understands, nothing  is definite about the area becoming a public park.  The board also heard that a tidal lagoon on the property is being filled in by the owner.  20 YEARS AGO  Arriving In Gibsons Tuesday morning for her two day  visit in Sechelt and Gibsons, the Honourable Isabel  Dawson, minister without portfolio in the provincial  government, announced that the new ferry, The Sunshine  Coast Queen, will start on the Langdale run tentatively  on May 5.  25 YEARS AGO  Criticism of the tourist brochure produced by the Sunshine Coast Tourist Association insofar as Powell River  coverage was concerned, brought sharp denunciation of  the 'apathetic attitude of local merchants, motel and  garage operators in their support of the SCTA' at the  general meeting of the Chamber of Commerce on Tuesday.  30 YEARS AGO  Work on Hackett Park, the centennial project for  Sechelt for 1958, is taking shape in the form of new  bleachers for the baseball diamond.  Now that the land has been cleared and straightened  out, lumber and cement blocks are on the spot for  workmen to use.  35 YEARS AGO  At the initial meeting of the May Day sports committee  In Pender Harbour last week, because the Queen's birthday will be celebrated on May 18 this year, It will take the  form of a community May Day. Sports will be managed by  the committee members and parents this year.  The Sunshine  HAM  Published by GLASSFORD PRESS LTD.

SUBSCRIPTION RATES  la: t year $35; 8 months 120; Foreign; 1 year 140  Why can't we feed  hungry youngsters?  Sunday morning on the CBC  Food Show there was a discussion of the problem of school  children who go to school  hungry in Canada.  A majority segmenl of the  program discussed the plight of  hungry youngsters in ihe Vancouver school system.  In a nutshell; the Vancouver  School Board wants to provide  a hot lunch program and is  looking for help in funding it.  The provincial governmenl  wants a lisl of the parenls ofthc  youngsters so it can supply ihem  with budgetary advice and-ilie  federal governmenl can'I help  unless the province leads the  way allowing Ihem lo provide  matching funds.  The Vancouver Cily Council  has nol yet been able lo pass a  resolution lhal il provide  $200,000 lo feed the hungry  youngsters.  The School Board won'l  release names of parenls io ihe  province so nothing gels done.  There is a mean-spirited, anti-  people mindset which occupies  Ihe positions of power in the na-  tions of Ihe wesl, from  Margaret Thatcher's Britain, to  Ronald Reagan's America, to  Brian Mulroney's Canada, and  Bill Vander Zaim's British Columbia. Such a mindset can only  rule because ihe majority of  people find lhal ii reflects their  values - and therein lies ihe puzzle.  Il is a strange phenomenon  lhal whenever ihere is talk of  raising ihe welfare rales good  and kindly people raise Ihe  ^question of higher taxation lo  sustain the rales. Ii mailers nol  lhal welfare recipients in this  province exisl al less lhan half  ihe poverty level as defined by  Stats Canada.  Neither does il seem lo mailer  whatever wasteful and non-  person measures Ihe governments in question undertake  which raise the laxes infinitely  more.  In Canada, no one raises ihe  question of taxation when ihe  Conservatives want io build  hugely expensive nuclear sub  marines. In B.C. hundreds of  millions of dollars overspent on  the Coquihalla Highway cause  no serious outcry from ihe lax-  payers.  Then ihere is the matler of  ihe Expo rides lhal were nol  sold lo Ontario interests for a  reputed $18 million because a  friend of Ihe premier allegedly  mighl want lo buy Ihem and  which now rust virtually  valueless. An expenditure of  $18 million to raise the welfare  rales would have the good and  decent middle class of Canada  howling in outrage at this waste  of iheir money.  In vain, do economists poinl  oul that mosl welfare recipients  would take their money directly  to Ihe nearest food or clolhing  store where il would be turned  immediately back into the  economy and therefore be  among Ihe most useful dollars  lhal government could spend.  Why is it that we shrug when  governments wasle huge sums  on mega projects and howl with  outrage if Ihey seek lo help the  unfortunate? How can Canada  pride itself in being one of the  most helping nations in the  world and refuse to help ils  own.  Canadians are a compassionate people. Footage of  famine in Ethiopia sends us  reaching for our wallets. We are  among the world leaders in providing grain for Ihe unfortunates around Ihe world. Whal  prevents us, ihen, in being compassionate to our own?  A speaker on the Sunday  morning radio averred lhat the  United Stales, even, has hoi  lunch programs in place. Olher  jurisdictions have had Ihem for  decades.  Almost forty years ago I was  receiving, because of a disabled  father, free hot lunches in my  high school. Those more fortunate paid for their lunch bul  all had il lo eat.  That one of the most fortunate provinces in one of the  world's mosl fortunate countries cannol find the will and the  way lo feed hungry youngsters  is simply disgraceful.  Peace notes  Government parrots war rhetoric  by Alan Wilson  Recently I criticized Ihe warmongering speech made by  defence minister Perrin Beatly  at the time of the superpower  summit. He said many Ihings I  disagree with, but one of his  statements, when removed from  the rest of the Cold War  rhetoric, is worth reconsidering.  He said: "We reject the concept of Ihe moral equivalence  between pluralistic democracies  and one-parly slates." Whal's  wrong wilh thai? I Ihink most  of us would agree lhal pluralism  is desirable and thai governments musl be subject to  popular conlrol. Whether such  control actually exisls in our  democracies, of course, is  anolher mailer.  If we are to be supporters of  this type of system then we musl  examine the reality of it, not  just ils idealized form. For example, wc Canadians assume  that our chief ally, being a  democracy, is necessarily virtuous and so we have opled lo  work hand-in-glove with Ihem.  The only trouble is, when you  scratch the surface of US  foreign policy and practice, you  find support for totalitarian  regimes, you find political  assassinations, you find terroristic military adventurism,  indeed you find a virtual empire  of subject peoples around the  globe. Where's the moral  superiority in that?  I recently heard a tape made  by the well-known US folk  group Peter, Paul and Mary  during their visit to Nicaragua  in 1986. They encountered people whose children had been  killed by the US-financed Con-  tras, including one woman  whose eight year old daughter  had been recently murdered.  In tears she said: "We  haven't done anything against  ihem (the Americans) for them  to send killers afler us."  1 have an eight year old  daughter myself and listening to  this woman's grief made me feel  outrage lhal such violence is being done, even al arms-length,  by our chief ally, the so-called  protector of freedom.  And yel Mary (Travers)  reported lhal Ihe people she encountered were nol tipsel wilh  her for being an American.  "You hear over and over again  ihis distinction belwecn ihe  American people and ihe acts of  Ihe American government."  And ihis in lurn disturbed her.  "Of all the countries in the  world where ihere should NOT  be a difference between the will  of Ihe people and the policies of  their governmenl il should be  the US. Ii should nol be lhal  there's ihis difference in a  democracy." Exactly.  And now we see yel more US  aid lo Ihe Conlras in opposition  to the internationally acclaimed  Arias peace plan. Surely our  government should speak out  strongly aboul this. But no, instead we hear our defence  minisler trotting out the well-  worn rhetoric that allows us to  remain conveniently blind lo  evil perpetrated in Ihe name of  good.  In saying this I am NOT trying to elevate the 'other side'.  There is no excuse for violent  crimes by anyone or any state.  We can easily cite the horrendous crimes of the Soviets in  Afghanistan to show that in  deed there is a sort of equivalent  immorality at work. What I am  trying to say is that if our chief  ally is guilty of terrible deeds  then we had better reconsider  our increasing emulation of  them.  One of the key questions to  ask ourselves is how this highly  vaunted political system can  lead lo such crimes. If  democracy is preferrable in  theory then we had better figure  oul what's wrong with it in fact  and fix it.  Some insights have been provided by the Iran-Contra scandal and the revelations about  ihe 'secret government' in the  US. According to the CBC  public affairs program, Sunday  Morning, "American foreign  policy has for the last quarter of  a century been effectively run  by ultra-right wing men inside  and outside the CIA, together  with a private army of gun runners, drug dealers, and hired  assassins."  Former CIA agent Ralph  McGeehee speaks about his experience in Vietnam where he  was brainwashed to see the  world 'as black and white'. This  led to the feeling that 'anything  wc do is justifiable', including  lying lo Congress and assisting  vigilante death squads in  murder and mayhem.  John Stockwell, former CIA  task-force commander in  Angola, estimates that the US  has been responsible for some  five to six million violent deaths  since the CIA was formed in  1947.  Daniel Sheehan, a lawyer  with a public interest law firm  called the Christie Institute  which is investigating the secrel  government, locates its origins  back in I960 in the attempt tp  overthow Castro. Then the  scene shifted to Vietnam and  spread to Cambodia and Laos,  where the CIA supported a major drug dealer. Then on to  Chile to overthrow Allende, and  on Iran to support the Shah. \  The efforts againsl Nicaragua  began wilh the revolution in  1979. Other sites include  Mozambique, Angola, anil  Afghanistan. Now attention has  turned to the Pacific, particularly the Phillipines.  One of the most disturbing  aspects of all this is the way the  drug trade has been used to  fund the operations. This is par^l  ticularly evident in Central  America. Investigators now  have sworn legal statements  outlining how CIA planes which  ferried illegal weapons from the  US for the Conlras, returned  with loads of cocaine for the  American market.  It seems clear to me that if  you assume the infallible  superiority of your political  system, and conversely, the  eternal evil of the enemy's  system, you very often end up  commiting crimes, creating suffering, and indeed, becoming  the very evil you imagine you're  working to defeat.  But I have hope. I'm encouraged that the truth has  begun to come forth in the US.  I have hope that a new era of  superpower relations has begun  to depolarize our attitudes sp  that we will begin to judge the  morality of actions themselves,  not solely on the basis of national origin or ideology of the  actors.  Let's hope our government  begins to see it this way.      3 Coast News, May 2,1988  Letters to the Editor  Safe highways must be our priority  ���: Editor:  | According to both local  :'��� newspapers we are given to  :��� understand that there has been  ;,no monies allocated for Sunshine Coast Projects in the  J: 1988-89 fiscal year, and that  ���;Mr. Dan Doyle of the Ministry  ���:of Highways and Transportation has verified that the budget  :-'for highways maintenance and  : development had been severely  : Curtailed and that there was no  possibility that the construction  'started in the Middlepoint area  would be completed this fiscal  ��� ;year. Really!  What is more urgent, a safe  ���:new highway or more parks?  \Do we need money for parks  >more than we require money for  ;'a decent and safe highway?  <   I for one think it is about  'time   that   this   government  realized that the Sunshine Coast  : Regional District population according to the 1986 Census was  :.T6,748, and since then there  ::have been considerably more  ���:people moving to the Sunshine  ���;Coast. Squamish has a population of some 10,000. I realize  the highway from Horseshoe  Bay to Squamish is being built  for the people in Whistler as  well as Squamish, however I  wonder how many people along  the Sunshine Coast feel it is  about time we received a decent  highway for our tax dollars.  What good did it do or what  good does it do for an area that  for many years voted NDP  when at lhat time nothing was  gained for our tax dollars which  then voted for a Social Credit  governmenl thinking thai our  hope for a decent highway  would come lo pass.  We who are residents, and  those who are in commerce  along this route and who have  to travel along the treacherous,  dangerous, sharp curves, and  narrow roadway with very few  passing places, and where impatient travellers pass other  vehicles where there are double  lines and very near sharp corners, think it is past due time  our tax dollars are utilized properly and spent here on our  behalf when it is so badly needed for a proper highway instead  of piddly bits of roid  maintenance.  There are most certainly  enough facilities to accommodate locals and tourists with  all types of required facilities,  except for a decent highway to  get them to where they are  headed on the Sunshine Coast.  There are lots of camping areas  provided of various types,  which include privately owned  and publicly owned.  We all pay taxes of one kind  or another, and believe me they  are horrendous, and I am sure I  am no exception as to thinking  we most certainly deserve better  than we have received in the  past when it comes to a better  highway for what we have to  pay in taxes whether it be income tax, residence tax,  business tax, gas tax, sales tax  or any other tax that this Social  Credit Government continues to  dream up as seems to continually be the case, and all we ever  seem to get, it appears to me, is  a swift kick in the you know  what, so too it seems!  I sincerely wish everyone who  agrees with this letter please get  off their duff and write to  Premier Vander Zalm, Minister  of Highways, the Honourable  Stephen Rogers, Minister of  Parks and Environment, the  Honourable Bruce Strachan,  our MLA Mr. Harold Long,  our MP Mr. Ray Skelly, our  local Chamber of Commerce in  Sechelt, we have none as yet in  Pender Harbour, and last but  certainly not least the Chairman, Sunshine Coast Regional  District. I will be most happy to  give anyone the address of any  of the foregoing. Anyone can  contact me by phone at  883-2898.  If everyone who reads this  and agrees with me will write it  would let the present government, who do represent us,  know how we feel about the  way we along the Sunshine  Coast are being neglected, I  firmly believe they will finally  listen to us and comply with our  right to better highway conditions in return for our hard  earned taxes.  Please, if everyone would  help by writing in, and it takes a  loi of people working together  in cooperation to make things  happen. I saw it work in  McBride with getting things  done to make a better life by  fighting for television and an ice  rink as well as a community hall  among other things the people  of McBride strived for and  worked together in getting.  Mrs. G.E. Collins  A Spilsbury objection  Editor:  In your last issue, George  Cooper refers to 'rollicking  anecdotes' from the Spilsbury's  Coast. Having read the book I  have the impression that Jim  Spilsbury is more concerned  with writing a 'rollicking' story  than with true characterization.  His comments about the late  Canon Alan Greene for instance, concentrate on human  frailties rather than Alan  Greene's considerable achievements.  During his 23 years as  superintendent of the Columbia  Coast Mission he travelled up  and down the B.C. Coast offering medical and spiritual comfort to Indian villages, logging  camps, lighthouses and isolated  settlements. He established  medical clinics and administered  the three hospitals which had  been built by the Mission.  One comment in the book to  which I take exception is,  "Greene became quite a landmark on the Coast mostly  because he lasted so damn  long." Does Jim Spilsbury not  know that during the last 10  years of Canon Greene's life  (those years which apparently  Spilsbury begrudged him) this  fine old man devoted his time  and energies to building homes  for senior citizens in Sechelt?'  By the time he died in 1972 at  the age of 83,24 units had been  completed and occupied and  since that time more have been  added. Greene Court, named in  his honour, will be his permanent monument.  Those of us who worked with  Alan Greene on this, his final  project, will remember him with  affection and respect.

CPP BENEFITS  I am in receipt of a booklel  published by Heallh and  Welfare Canada entitled 'Your  Canada Pension Plan (Survivor  Benefits)'. In Ihis booklel there  are 42 facts aboul Canada Pension payments - Ihe 'yes and no'  of Ihe Plan. It was drawn to the  attention of our branch at the  April meeting by Charlie Collins.   Seclion  21,  specifically,  .could be very beneficial to a  spouse having lost his or her  mate prior to January I, 1987  and il reads as follows:  "Will Remarriage Affecl My  Survivor Benefits? NO. The  rules on remarriage changed effective January 1, 1987, You  can now continue lo receive survivor benefits even if you  remarry. If you remarried  before January 1, 1987, and losl  your enlillemenl lo a survivor  ��� benefit under Ihe previous rules,  you can apply lo have your  .benefits re-instated.

This is only one instance of a  change in legislation that can  slip by a potential recipient of  survivor benefits.  Another benefit to a surviving spouse is the death benefit.  Section 11 of the booklet stales:  "The death benefit is a lumpsum benefit payable to, or on  behalf of, the estate of the  deceased contributor."  These ihree informative  booklets on the Canada Pension  Plan are entitled 'Disability  Benefits', 'Retirement Pension'  and 'Survivor Benefits'.

Tel gave a slide  presentation at the community  hall in Egmont. The programme was given by Mr. Dave  Welsford from the managemeni  staff in Vancouver. He was accompanied by Mr. Gordy  Cook, network supervisor for  the Sunshine Coast, and Mr.  Budd Fearnley, construction  supervisor. All three capably  fielded questions from a very interested audience.  They outlined the history of  telephone service in the province  from the earliest lines to the present and discussed what service  could be expected in the future  in the Egmont area.  The first telephone service lo  the Egmont area was installed in  1916 during the war. It ran from  Porpoise Bay and crossed the  narrows inside the Skookum-  chuck. Some of the long-time  Egmont residents in the audience knew where sections of  this original line were located.  history  Egmont  Coast News, May 2,1988  Mr. Welsford showed photos  of old equipment and the people  who kept it running. He said  lhal originally boys operated the  exchange switchboards bul they  were loo unruly so women got  the  job.

Bul such is not the case in a  very important regard for there  Ihe environmental damage of  far distant industry appears in  the jusi discovered hole in the  ozone layer over Antarctica.  It does seem so far-fclched to  hear lhat the inert gas commonly used in refrigeration, in  aerosol cans, and in the  manufacture of plastic foam  eventually escapes and collects  in the far upper reaches of our  al mosphere.  There il destroys Ihe ozone,  which is a shield againsl the  ultra-violet rays. Rays that bring on skin cancer, cataracts,  and a weakening of body  resistance lo disease. In Ihe ice  clouds and wind 1.1 miles above  Antarctica, the greatest damage  is done to ihe ozone layer. And  this area of destruction widens  yearly.  A recent issue of Ihe Sierra  magazine records the sequence  of events leading lo this hazardous problem. A problem  which was addressed in pari in  ihe Montreal Agreement of lasl  year.  The results of the agreement?  By the year 2000, 50 percenl less  emission of the chemical that  causes this damage to the ozone  layer.  Part of the problem, it is  realized, is thai there is no visual  evidence of damage. No scarred  hillsides or bombed cities. But  this pollution is a killer, and  should it continue, can, along  wilh olher harmful emissions,  interfere with our climale as  well.  The chemical in question,  called CFC for short, was  developed in 1928 by General  Motors. At lhal lime il replaced  ammonia in refrigeration.  Then, in aerosol cans because il  had no reaction with any contents of ihe can. Later, because  il made uniform bubbles, in  plastic foam manufacture, It is  also a cleaning solvent for clec-  Ironic products. By the I960's a  billion pounds yearly was produced in the industrial countries.  The CFC molecules do not  break down on the earth's surface but rise and drift aboul  miles above. Eventually,  around 70,000 feel ultra-violet  rays liberate chlorine from these  CFCs. The chlorine attacks Ihe  ozone, destroying it.  All of this was at first in 1974  only the theory of Iwo scientists  in the University of California.  But the theory was confirmed in  1986 by olher scientists from  their observations in Antarctica.  The astonishing part of all  this is that a convenlion Ihe very  nexl year, 1987, would be called  lo address ihis problem, and  would come lo a world-wide  agreemenl that CFC must be  banned to prevent disaster. And  all this although no direel  evidence was al hand.  Banned soon rather lhan immediately because refrigeration  and air conditioning depend  upon CFC. Since the United  Stales   had   already   banned  This Mother's Day  SAVE upto 60%  on selected  SHEEPSKIN SPECIALTIES  Only genuine sheepskin  keeps you warm in winter  and cool in summer  P^  Bring this ad in for I  an additional 5% off  (Seniors 10%) J  Free Flower for Mom, May 8    i  THE SUNSHINE COAST i  SLIPPER COMPANY j  '"lih-nmTinHing ABB-lSpO |  Open 10-5.

Some scientists believe the  slratosphere has yet to receive  ihe full load of CFCs released in  Ihe pasl 50 years. Every crushed  foam cup, all the old fridges  crushed in Ihe land-nil sites, all  the foam in discarded furniture,  Ihe ripped-out insulation - all  adds lo the load of pollution,  Much easier lo ignore than lo  face.  Some encouraging news: An  eastern Canada grocery chain  will replace foam egg cartons,  meal trays, and other foam containers with material free of  CFCs. And Dupont, a  manufacturer of CFCs, announces il will cease production  in due course of lime.  It is lo be hoped the  manufacture of CFC will  dwindle and cease altogether as  others follow suit.  ...a sweet experience  &    DONT  VM   FORGET  MOM  264 Gower Pt.

During Thursday night's  presentation, Burns compared  the proposed canal to the  Rideau Canal in Ottawa, bul  was challenged on that comparison by Area C Director Stan  Dixon.  "The Rideau Canal is four  feet deep," said Dixon, "1  could wade across it."  Dixon also pointed out that  he had worked on the construction   of  Teredo   Street   and  Get your Flea Market space  by Ruth Forrester, 885-2418  This will be your last opportunity to make sure that you  have your space at the Welcome  Beach Flea Market next Sunday, May 8.

NICK THINGS  A couple of very nice things  I have happened to 'Yours Truly'  ; this past week. One of them was  the afternoon when someone  :' from school dropped by my of-  MOTHER'S  DAY  JEWELLERY  6  GIFTS  EARRINGS  GALORE  flee and presented a tray of  muffins which had been baked  by the Sechelt Elementary Muffin Makers. They were very tasty indeed.  This was given together with  a Certificate of Appreciation  from the Muffin Makers to the  Coast News. A real nice geslure.  Il makes us all feel good to be  told that we are appreciated for  something and il was nice to get  one. Bul when it came to getting  two of them it was really  something.  I was at work and unable to  attend Ihe Volunteer Appreciation Day al the Band Hall, but  was informed afterwards thai  there was a certificate for me.  What on earlh for?  Well it turned oul lhat it was  Ihe Suncoast Writers' Forge  who had given me this honour  of an Appreciation certificate  for which I would like to thank  them.  While on the topic of writers,  there are names which will be  familiar to most of you in the  new edition of The Suncoaster  magazine. Il contains the works  of local writers and artists and  Ihe winners of Ihe recent writing  contest, Cost is only $2.50 and  they are available at the Coast  News office in Sechell and al  bolh book stores. Don't I'orgel  lhal when you can't reach me  with news or announcements  for ihe Halfmoon Bay area you  can call Ihe information in to  ihe Coasl News office.  AUXILIARY  The Halfmoon Bay Branch  of St. Mary's Hospital Aux-  uliary started oul the week happily on Monday, April 25 when  they hosted a coffee party.  There was a good attendance of  friends, neighbours and fellow  auxilians from other areas. The  homebaking sale did a good  business.  Thank you one and all for  supporting us. The winners of  the door prizes were Jeannie  Mercer and Mary Macdonald,  and the lucky lady for the raffle  was Elsie Julian, our dear friend  and neighbour from Redrooffs  Road.

Why pay someone $40,000,  $50,000 or possibly $90,000 lo  determine what is already  known?"

The course was for mayors,  chairmen, and elected officials  at a conference al the Canadian  Emergency Preparedness College in Arnprior, Ontario.  The aim is to assist elected  leaders in iheir responsibilities  for ihe developmeni of plans  and Ihe implementation of  preparations lo meel emergency  situations.  The scope of the conference  involved lectures, demonstrations, case studies, discussions,  planning, operational concepts  and practices designed lo emphasize Ihe significance of  municipal responsibilities and  the cxlenl of local contributions  in emergencies.  Imporiani In planning is al-  lilude, Ihe feeling of 'il can't  happen here' is a deterrent to effective planning. We arc for-  lunale here in having a co  ordinator, Mr. Art McPhee,  who believes in being prepared  and lo lhat extent sees that as  many as possible attend Ihe  federally sponsored courses al  Arnprior and the Provincial  Emergency Programs in Victoria.  The college is on Ihe outskirts  of  Arnprior   in   a   rural   at  mosphere and was used during  the war as a training barracks  for Commonwealth pilots.  An added plus lo this course  is people are here from every  province and territory in  Canada. This provides a great  opportunity to get to know  more aboul whal is happening  across Ihe country,  Egmont News  This particular course was for  politicians, but the last course I  attended was on Emergency  Planning and was attended by  firemen, police, planners, and  health services personnel, etc.  A three hour stop-over in Ottawa was enough time to visit  Ihe Parliament buildings for a  lour of the seat of our government.

Bill and 1 have been back  a month, after spending the  winler aboard Moult in the  Caribbean. The islands are lovely, Ihe warm seas wonderful,  bul I must say I was happy to  gel home. It would be hard to  find a more beautiful part of the  world than the Sunshine Coast  in general and Egmonl in particular. How's lhal for  chauvinism?  We return in time for the annual Walk for Peace. We musl  have known that this was a  special year, the fifth anniversary for the Sunshine Coast  Peace Committee, for we were  here in time for a celebration: a  potluck dinner held on a warm  sunny Sunday al the home of  Denise and Roger Legasse. If  you're wondering what that has  to do with Egmont News it's the  involvement of several Egmont  residents in the peace movement.  BATHGATES HONOURED  Speaking of dinners leads me  to the main item of news this  week. On Wednesday a superb  polluck dinner was held at the  community hall lo honour Jack  and Marilyn Bathgate. It's impossible to list all the people  who worked to make this affair  such a success.  The Bathgates have been  members of the community for  almost 25 years, running  Bathgate's Store and other  enterprises. As Iris Griffith said  in her speech, ihey have quietly  contributed to the community  over Ihe years, often unnoliced,  giving fireworks al Hallowe'en,  treats for ihe youngsters at  Christmas, and so on.  Al Ihe dinner ihey were given  a beautiful engraved silver tray  plus olher gifts. Over 100 people were in attendance to watch  Jack cul a huge cake, baked by  Belly Silvey and decorated by  Vi Berntzen.

A motion was passed to support the  District of Squamish at the next  meeting of the Union of B.C.  Municipalities (UBCM) on their  resolution to petition the provincial government to make  B.C. "a nuclear weapons-free  zone in which the manufacture,  storage, distribution, testing,  and/or transportation of  nuclear weapons or their components is prohibited."  Later in the same meeting, a  letter was received from the  Special Committee on Peace of  Vancouver City Council. In it,  chairman Charles Paris pointed  out that although more than  half the population of B.C. lives  in nuclear weapons-free zones,  there has not been sufficient  support at UBCM conventions  in the past to have B.C.  declared a nuclear weapons-free  zone.  "It might be useful to  organize a strategy meeting, of  supporting Aldermen and  Mayors, just prior to the  UBCM opening at Whistler, to  coordinate and discuss the  Squamish resolution. Would  you support such an idea?" he  wrote.  Each member of the regional  board was asked to record their  vote individually and each one  voted loudly and clearly "Yes."  The motion to support a  strategy meeting at the next  UBCM convention was passed  unanimously.

What they wanted to do, he  stated, was to establish a com-  "It would be up to that commission to then distribute and  regulate funds," said Wilson.  He went on to propose a  referendum be held to establish  that function.  "It's my view that such a  referendum would be well  received in Area A," he said.  Sechelt's role in such a plan is  unknown.  "The Town of Gibsons, as  far as I know, is more than willing to go this route," said  Alderman Norm Peterson who  was chairing the meeting. "We  For 1988  want a function that everybody  supports because everybody  uses the library."  Alderman Dixon pointed oul  the need for more space in the  Gibsons library.  SCRD director Jim Gurney  was present in the spectators'  gallery and volunteered that  what the SCRD was looking for  was a commitment from the  Town of Gibsons that it would  participate in the library function.  Peterson noted that Gibsons  had a policy not to make a decision at the time of any presentation but would consider it. He  did poinl out that any decision  made by Sechelt would not affect Gibsons.  Wilson volunteered to conlact Municipal Affairs.  "Let's see if we can't get this  referendum going as soon as  possible," he stated in his closing remarks.  No major change  in Gibsons taxes  by Ken Collins  For the most part, municipal  taxes in Gibsons will not go up  this year.  "The basic tax rate will remain at the same rate as last  year," clerk/administrator Lor-  rain Goddard told the Coasl  News last Friday. At that time,  she was in the process of putting  the finishing touches on the  1988 municipal budget.  "Roads will get about  $160,000 and sidewalks about  $5,000," she stated. As well,  there is a slight amount alloted  for the fire department.  There will be a slight increase  in the tax on property classified  as business, approximately 40  cents per thousand. The increase will go directly to the  Chamber of Commerce grant.  There will be a substantial increase in sewer user charges.  Last Tuesday the municipal  council voted to increase the fee  from $52.20 to $80.00. The  water connection fee will go up  by 20 percent.  "The cost of operation and  maintenance is not being met by  the users of the system," noted  Alderman Dixon at the time.  The major projects for the  town of Gibsons for 1988 are  the construction of a 200,000  gallon water reservoir on School  Road and modifications to the  sewer treatment plant.  Gibsons Elementary  students plan  spring clean-up  A major cleanup of Gibsons  is being planned by Gibsons  Elementary School as part of  the province's annual Pitch-In  Campaign on May 4,1988 at 11  am to 12 pm.  "We expect more than 350 of  our students to participate in  this project as our contribution  towards cleaning up our community's environment," states  Audrey Owen, spokesperson  for the school's "Pitch-In"  Campaign.  Pitch-In takes place across  the province and in other parts  of Canada during the week of  May 2 to 8, 1988 and hundreds  of thousands of volunteers are  expected to participate.  "Keeping the enrivonment  clean is most important. Our  cleanup will help to impress on  our students Ihe amount of litter which can accummulate"  states Miss Owen, adding "even  though cleaning up is important, educating people not to  deface the enrivonment is even  more important."

Coast News. May 2,1988  Maryanne's Viewpoint  Christ's message of compassion  by Maryanne West  While I understand the  Premier's belief lhat faith in  God is a help in coping with  whatever fate throws al you in  life, I would suggest lhal all ol  us, but especially politicians,  should avoid preaching Christianity. One inevitably sounds  self-righteous and hypocritical.  The difficulty wilh Christianity surely is thai few of us  qualify to call ourselves Christians.  Jesus, if you remember, was  highly critical of ihose who called Ihemselves religious, who  followed 'church' doctrines and  rituals to the letter and felt  ihemselves a cul above everyone  else, refusing lo have anything  to do with those they classified  as 'sinners'.  When asked whal was Ihe  mosl important commandment  lo live by, Jesus' answer was  deceptively simple, "Thou shall  love the Lord thy God with all  thy heart, and with all thy soul,  and with all thy mind, and with  all thy strength and thou shall  love thy neighbour as thyself."  (Mark 12 30/31).  And who is my neighbour?  Jesus was asked several times  and made himself perfectly  clear. You'll remember the  story of the Good Samarilan  (Luke 10 29/37) of a man who  fell among thieves, was robbed  and left for dead; the respected  members of Ihe community  who refused to gel involved, but  a stranger, a Samarilan, looked  down upon by the orthodox  hierarchy of Ihe day, look care  of ihe victim and brought him  lo safely, leaving money for his  care before going on his way.  Translated inlo today's society surely this means we cannot  use any excuse to ignore the  needs of those less fortunate  lhan ourselves, thai feelings of  superiority for whatever reason  are nol acceptable?  Over and over Jesus made it  clear that it isn't enough just to  follow religious ritual or to live  Gardening  notes  by Marguerite  Dandelions are mosl prolific  in April and May, especially  where we don'l want them.  They make good wine and are  useful for salad greens, and are  attractive in colour.  If you want to reduce them, I  have heard that one tablespoon  of Allen's vinegar in a pint of  waler, sprayed down into the  ground to the tap root is most  effective, and is harmful lo no  one, but you may have to repeat  where necessary.  The other method is to use a  weed tool with a claw-like head,  obtainable al mosl garden centres, but you may have lo repeal  about twice a year.  The sunflowers I planted in  pots recently came up much  quicker after removal of the  striped shell, and are looking  pretty vigorous already. They  will be planted when the  weather is a little warmer. It's  been pointed out to me lhat the  blue jays are greedy and eat all  the seeds they can see, so plant  plenty of seeds.  Apparently the sunflower  seed is one of Ihe richest and  most digestable of all foods.  One cup of seeds provides 34.8  grams of high-quality protein  along with every essential amino  acid, vilamin E, D, A, Ihe B  complex, and vilamin K. They  are also rich in trace minerals.  The oil has a higher content of  unsaturated fatty acids lhan any  other oil.  The Sechell Garden Club  meeting is on Wednesday, May  4 in St. Hilda's Church Hall, al  7:30 pm. Old and new members  and guests are welcome.  Happy Mother's Day.  Happy  Birthday,  Seagull!  by the 10 commandments, or to  claim to believe in God, our  lives have to reflect our care for  our neighbour, whatever his  race or condition.  Time and again Jesus warned  againsl judging others,  challenged those ready to stone  the woman taken in adultery  that anyone without sin could  throw the first stone.  His description of the last  judgement reminds us how all  encompassing is our responsibility for the welfare of our  neighbour.  The disciples were often ask  ing who would be the greatest in  the Kingdom of Heaven and  Jesus' answer was always the  same, he who would be the  chief must minister to the  oihers, and when the time came  for evaluation and the righteous  were chosen the King would explain why:  "For I was hungered, and ye  gave me meat; I was thirsty, and  ye gave me drink; I was a  stranger, and ye took me in.  Naked, and ye clothed me; I  was sick and ye visited me; I was  in prison and ye came unto  me."  When they were surprised  and asked when this had happened the King replied, "Verily  I say unto you Inasmuch as ye  have done it unto one of these  least of my brethren ye have  done it unto me." (Matthew 25  32/46).  Can any of us in this land of  plenty call ourselves Christians  and allow children to go  hungry, to tolerate food banks  and the homeless, or to accepted a two-tiered health care  system or better educational opportunities for the rich than the  poor?  ? tvtuttd UAt tst txfvuMr mif  rXfytnteiaUt^K fo <xtl mu autfiMivu  cvJU tuccufrdUt UMueL tU PturttcicU  ffo^mtmott Otto- Ur*t4444>0tf &���  value of! nt444aat tAvtafty at  fvuMHtatim, iutftk cant tmd fotfUna  uhX/Uk ttit Tfttdtcal SvuUuA.

The event is being entered into the Guiness Book of World Records.  Looking back  Whitworth Chronicles  by Richard K. Kennelt  For Madge Whitworth Newman, whal started out early in  ihis century to be a summer  camp retreat on Crow Road in  Roberts Creek, eventually hat-  , ched into acres of chicken  houses and up lo 1000 leghorns,  each and every one of Ihem loved by her molher.  Her father Will Whitworth, a  marine engineer on coastal  vessels, provided much of Ihe  venture capital lo make Ihis  possible. Though not at home  too often, as far as he was concerned, nothing was too good  for his wife and daughter.  Madge was ah only child. To  . pul il her way, "I was kicked  out of school by our family doc-  . lor who said it was either my  heallh or my education. I was  too important as an only child  and unfortunately they chose  my heallh."  From 1925 to 1935, Madge  was living in California and on  reluming home found young  maple trees planted around the  Easl Roberts Creek School at  Orange Road and the highway.  The Whitworth Chronicles  reveal lhal school trustee Jim  Leek had seen lo Iheir planting  in 1927. To Ihis day they are a  colourful array lo Ihe eye of a  camera.  Somewhere too, buried in a  concrete cairn in ihe grounds of  Elphinstone Bay School at  Lockycr Road and Ihe highway,  are old school records and  memorabilia of the day.  The school, long gone, was  firsl opened in 1911 and had as  its first teacher, Violet Husdon.  Later in 1917, Emily Orange  taught at Elphinstone Bay  School traversing the distance  wilh her small carriage and  horse Tommy, who was later  purchased for Madge who  found him lo be ornery. "Being  fed mostly oals and given a life  of leisure, Tommy returned to  jhis losl youlh and I nearly losl  mine. For my molher thai was  gliiiiilliiliiiliiliiiilliilliiiilllililliillllliiillll  enough and 1 was forced to part  with him although mother  believed he was not vicious, only playful, and had nol bitten  me bul merely hit me," Madge  recalls.  Though Madge Whitworlh  Newman said "politics were nol  my cup of tea, I remember  vividly back when J.S.  Woodsworth, founder of the  C.C.F. visited our home, sat up  all night talking with my father,  and afler a hearty breakfast  took off on foot back to his  socialist friends in Gibsons. I  thought he was a kind, quiel  and gentle man."  Prior to his death, Will Whitworlh was the last surviving  white man to have served on the  original Heaver of Hudson's  Bay Company fame. He knew  the Coast like Ihe back of his  hand and had worked the  Yukon rivers too. Once,  Ihrough a quirk in the weather,  he missed the ill-fated sailing of  C.P.R.'s Princess Sophia (torn  Skagway October 24, 1918, only  lo learn later of her foundering  on a reef and sinking with a  total loss of at least 318 souls,  many of whom were his friends  of the White Pass River  steamers.  The chronicles note that the  ill-fated voyage brought Ihe  tragedy close to Madge's  neighbours, Frank and Emily  Orange. Molly Orange, Frank's  sister, a nurse, brought lo Iheir  home the baby son of Captain  Locke, Princess Sophia's  master who had perished with  his ship. Molly later married  and adopted Ihe infant.  Madge and my family were  back-to-back neighbours during  the 1950's. She and her mother  on Crow Road, we on the original Orange five-acre estate,  which we had purchased from  the octagenarian Frank Hewer,  who also had been a chicken  farmer as well as the local  justice of the peace. It was  pointed out that Frank's wife  looked after the chickens, she  being the former Helen Boull-  llllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllii  i  I  CONTINUING EDUCATION SD46  There is still time to sign up for:  Gold Panning  Adult Learning Disabilities Workshop  Story Telling (for Seniors & new parents)  Herbs From Garden To Kitchen  Call 886-8841 for more information  ffliiiiiiiiiniiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii  bee of ihe prominent Vancouver  family. Madge had informed  me, "Frank Hewer was an  Englishman who lived in a  home, where, when Ihe fire  burned low, he would pull a  cord to summon a servant to  place a log as well as draw the  drapes when evening approached. That type of background."  Mrs. Whitworth was instrumental in his buying the Orange  property and Madge recalls,  "once he had come to our  house for lunch and was so  taken by my mother's clean  slarched apron and dress and  Ihe atmosphere of the home."  I interject here to note my  father, also an Englishman,  referred lo these types as 'remittance men'. Frank died in the  care of Mrs. Ward on Lower  Road while our purchase of the  property was going through to  us and I was denied Ihe opportunity of meeting him face lo  face, knowing a number of  Ihem existed locally.  Today, as ever, Madge Whitworth Newman is a classy lady,  charming, humorous, cultured  and artistic wilh a heritage of  newspapering in her family. Her  uncle, the lale Helen Galliford's  father, started the Fraser Valley  Record in Mission together with  a Chilliwack and Abbotsford  paper more than 75 years ago.  "My delighl as a child on  visiting my uncle's office was  being allowed lo type a letter on  his typewriter and likewise the  linotype. Maybe that's why I  have always had a weakness for  newspapers." she said.  Now retired and tussling with  her golden years in Sechelt, she  is still an authority on early  Roberts Creek whose research  helped compile many of the  dales and facts for the book  "Remembering Roberts Creek"  from her scrapbooks and  historical notes. Not lo mention  lhal she was a correspondent  for Ihe Coasl News for a good  number of years.  Madge once said "There is so  much of living lo be found in  people's backgrounds if you can  unearth it."  It was also once said, and I  quote, "Ihe good and the bad,  the ecstasy, the remorse and  sorrow, the people and places  and how the weather was. If  you can gel so you can give lhal  to the people, Ihen you are a  writer"...Ernest Hemingway.  We iry Madge. We try.

School  trustees  get input  by Rose Nicholson  The Board of School Trustees  recently sought input from the  public on developing a philosophy of education of the  district. At a meeting last  Thursday night at Chatelech  high school, over 100 interested  and concerned people wrestled  with problems and goals in an  attempt to fashion a plan lo  cope wilh the stresses thai a  rapidly changing sociely is placing on the school system.  Repeatedly teachers stressed  Ihe difficulties ihey encounter  with studenls who are struggling  with severe personal problems  lhal diminish their ability lo  learn effectively.  There was much discussion  on Ihe role lhal schools should  be playing in the community.  On ihe one hand, schools were  seen as ihe one stable component in the lives of many  students, and on ihe olher, il  was pointed oul lhat this places  so much stress on ihe education  system lhal Ihe actual educational process suffers. The need  was seen for a much closer  liaison between parenls, schools  and public agencies such as  social services and police.  Some people questioned the  traditional concept of education  as a knowledge gathering  system and suggested thai in  this age of knowledge-overkill,  the ability to think effectively  would be a more important goal  of the educational system.  Still others felt lhat il was Ihe  schools' responsibility to more  effectively prepare sludenls lo  enter the working world by providing more vocational training  and work experience.  Jusi aboul everybody agreed  lhal in Ihis dislricl it was extremely important to enlarge the  Native Studies program and to  foster harmony between the Iwo  cultures in every way possible.  There were suggestions on the  increased use of school facilities  by the community al large, and  many people pointed out lhat  we should be lapping the rich  resource of talented people that  live on the Sunshine Coast.

Coast News, May 2,1988  17.  \  /  The Sunshine  Second Section  In Gibsons  Sewer treatment solution found?  Municipal workers in Gibsons have to constantly clean inorganic  items from the sewage system hy hand. (See story this page)  !        / ���Ken Collins pholo  Finally, the Municipality of  Gibsons has determined the  reason for the odours coming  from its sewage treatment plant  and has come up with a proposed solution with the assistance  of consultants Dayton and  Knight.  According to Public Works  Superintendent Skip Reeves, the  problem with the system is that  it does nol gel hot enough in the  digesters. This conclusion was  reached through consultation  with experts from Dayton and  Knight last Tuesday.  The way the system works is  that all the sewage is pumped into a huge tank called a digester  and a natural process takes  place which breaks down any  organic material into harmless  (and odourless) substances.  Heat is required for this process  to work properly and the  natural interaction of sewage  can generate its own heat.  And thai is the way the plant  at Gibsons was designed to  work except for one slight problem. It has too much water in  its sewage and does not come up  to temperature. Therefore, the  digester does not digest properly  and it smells. At least this is  what the experts say.  So the proposed solution is to  have the sewage go first inlo a  thickening lank with large stirring paddles which would decani  some of the liquids producing a  thicker mixture.  From ihere it should be  pumped to Iwo digesters via an  air lift pump. The digesters will  each be equipped with a venturi  airing system thai will introduce  oxygen to ihe sewage, hopefully  creating enough heat to initiate  ihe breakdown process.  A venturi is simply a restriction in the intake that will cause  air to be sucked into the line.  But what about cost? The exact figures are not yet determined but the town is attempting to  keep costs at a bare minimum.  Much of the needed pumping  and piping materials can be obtained at scrap prices from a  local industry that is going  through a major refit. The present digester can be converted to  a thickening tank and the only  parts still needed as of Friday  were the two tanks for the new  digesters.  Cost estimates given to Gibsons Council, at their committee meeting last Tuesday, by  public works were in the  $30,000  range  Hearts of Gold awards  Entries are pouring in for Air  Canada's Hearl of Gold  Awards. People across Canada  are nominating friends and  neighbours for awards that  recognize the effort lhat so  many people make for the  benefit of iheir communities.  Air/Canada and the Canadian Community Newspapers  Association are joining forces lo  provide public recognition for  the hundreds of people who  quietly contribute to ihe quality  of life, with no expectation of  reward.  The idea started three years  ago   with   Bruce   Renner  of  Lighthouse Publishing of Newfoundland. Shortly after, Air  Canada joined the project and  weekly newspapers across the  counlry are now participating.  Candidates for the awards in-  clude people who are  resourceful, courageous community leaders, or give selfless  service lo others, or are exemplary community volunteers,  or have overcome some form of  disability to become useful and  inspirational community  members, or are improving the  quality of life in the community, or are outstanding citizens  who set a fine example for  others.  There are probably dozens of  people on the Sunshine Coast  who qualify, so if you think a  neighbour or friend deserves  recognition, let us know who  they are. Pick up a form from  either our Gibsons or Sechell  offices. Complete the form, add  a note or letter telling us why  you ihink your nominee  deserves recognition, return it to  us, and we will do the rest.  All nominees will receive an  Award Certificate, but the more  information you can give, the  more chance your nominee has  to win a provincial award.

Coast News, May 2,1988  LEISURE  Pnyes From A Life Log  Icemen cometh  by Peter Trower  Media personality Vicki Gabereau kept an audience of 100 plus  rolling in the aisles at the Arts Centre last Friday evening. She was  promoting her latest book "This Won't Hurt a Bit".  ���Ken Collins pholo  Arts Beat  Twenty-six miles north of  Stewart, B.C., in a wild country  of scrub-treed, snow-patched  mountains, the Salmon Glacier  inches down like a mile-wide  worm from the vast icefields  lhat feed it. The movement of  Ihe ancient ice mass is slow bul  inexorable. It has been pursuing  its snail-like course for  thousands of years and, barring  some major climatic  catastrophe, will pursue it for  thousands more.  Al Ihe fool of the mountaiii  the glacier collides head-on with  an enormous rock bluff and  T-junctions, splitting into two  separate ice-flows. The longer  of these veers southwesl  towards Ihe Alaska Panhandle,  eventually giving birth to the  Salmon River. The shorter  branch runs northeast, terminating al and calving ice  chunks inlo, a body of fresh  water known as Summit Lake.  In the rainy season, the waler  rises in ihe lake, actually  floating the end of the glacier.  Each August, a curious  phenomenon lakes place. A  suction effect occurs and Ihe  waler disappears under the  glacier, draining the lake completely. The icebergs, some of  them as tall as six storey  buildings, are left high and dry  on Ihe lake bottom. Local Indians marvelled al this process  and called it 'Jokallah'.  Unlil very recently, Summit  Lake's disappearing acl was  nothing more lhan a natural oddity - a minor tourist aiiraction.  In Ihe past iwo years, however,  Unique musical  The Robert Minden Ensemble, a Vancouver based group  which has been receiving wide  exposure lately, are bringing  their "Musical Saw and Other  Crazy Instruments Show" io  Ihe Arts Centre for a once only  appearance on Salurday May 14  al 8 pm.

Sechell   885-2687  all lhal has changed. Visitors to  the area last summer and fall,  would have witnessed considerable activity around the  lake bed - men in hard-hats  moving among the beached  bergs; mobile crane units  loading greal blue several-ton  nuggets of glacial ice aboard a  steady procession of flatbed  trucks. The floes of Summit  Lake are being harvested in one  of ihe most unique business  ventures lo come down the pike  in a long while.  I must confess lhal when I  firsl heard of lee Age Ice Inc., I  was more lhan a little dubious  -if not downright skeptical. I  firsl got wind of the Company  Ihrough my longtime colleague,  Yvonne Klan. On a recent trip  to Stewarl, she ran into Reg  Keating, President of lee Age  Ice, at the local museum.  Keating gave her a rough rundown on the operation, and a  very intriguing brochure. Since  Yvonne was tied up on another  projeel, she turned Ihe story  over to me.  As 1 say, Ihe whole business  sounded pretty off-the-wall  -something like selling ice-boxes  to Eskimos in reverse. But il  was certainly differenl. And  Ihere was definitely a precedent  for Ihis sort of thing in the successful marketing of Perrier  Water - a fact that Ice Age Ice  has by no means overlooked.  Their catch phrase is: 'The Perrier of Glacial Ice'. One way  or another, Ihere was obviously  a story here. I decided to go for  it.  Arranging a meeting with the  principals of Ice Age Ice, look a  few days lo set up, since Reg  Keating lives in Armslrong,  B.C. and Jack Lott, ihe Projeel  Manager, in Surrey. Eventually  we managed to gel together,  along wilh Publicity Director,  Gerry Lehoski, in the Company's swank new offices al  1500 West Georgia. Il was a  fascinating session and I came  away knowing more aboul  glacial ice and ils market potential  than  1  ever  imagined  I  would.       -.  .        ,.

Astute guide to great novels  The world of the English  language novel is a complex and  sprawling one. A quick browse  through the fiction department  of any large city library will give  some idea of the vastness and  variety, and this is only the tip  of the literary iceberg.  Many more books, no longer  in fashion or demand, hide  obscurely in the dusty basement  stacks. Few of these novels, of  course, even remotely approach  the masterpiece category. The  bulk of them are competent  potboilers at best. But the truly  great works lie cheek-by-jowl  among them and it is these  books that poet and critic Vernon Scannell, turns his attention  to, in his excellent study How  To Enjoy Novels (Platkus).  Scannell's book is no dry  academic treatise, despite his  scholarly credentials. His purpose here is to de-mystify the'  classic novels for the average  reader, who might tend to be intimidated by them. He succeeds  admirably.  The first couple of chapters  amount to generalized comments on the novel as a literary  form, without citing specific examples. Scannell deplores the  fact that many otherwise intelligent people no longer read  novels or fiction in any form.  He then presents some very  good arguments why they  should, stressing that the best  novels transcend mere storytelling, work on many levels and,  much as the finest poetry, can  actually enrich the human condition.  In the third chapter, Scannell  starts getting down to cases,  breaking the novel into its  various components, language,  plot, dialogue, atmosphere, imagery and symbolism, etc. He  describes how all these elements  must be present and working  together, for the literary creation to be truly successful. He  gives some examples of these  novelistic devices, including  some that patently don't come  up to the mark.  The remainder of the book is  devoted to a brief history of the  English and American novel  from the 18th century to the  present. (Scannell readily admits that the books he singles  out for special acclaim in these  chapters, are based very much  on his own personal tastes.).  According to Scannell, the  roots of the novel as we know it  today, date back to such books  as Moll Flanders by Daniel  Defoe and Tom Jones by Henry  Fielding. He moves quickly into  the 1800's and the work of Jane  Austen and Sir Walter Scott,  forges on into th.- Victorian era  and the highly important contributions of Charles Dickens,  the Bronte sisters and Thomas  Hardy.  He then looks at roughly the  same period in America and the  seminal novels of Herman  Melville, Mark Twain, Henry  James and Stephen Crane.  Returning to England, Scannell studies the years from 1900  to 19(50, touching on a host of  highly diverse novelists from  Joseph Conrad and H.G. Wells  to James Joyce, D.H. Lawrence, Virginia Woolf, Evelyn  Waugh and William Golding.  Back to America, Scannell  takes a close, highly knowledgeable look at Ernest Hemingway, F. Scott Fitzgerald,  William Faulkner, Nathanial  West, J.D. Salinger, Joseph  Heller and expatriate Russian  writer, Vladimir Nabokov.  A final chapter in Scannell's  succinct survey deals with recent  trends in the novel in both  England and America, and brings the study up to the present  day. Despite its somewhat  weighty subject matter, this is a  sparkling, informative and  highly entertaining book. If  Vernon Scannell has his way, it  should lure many readers back  to the unique (and somewhat  neglected) world of the serious  novel.  *   GIBSONS  LEGION       Branch  ^|���We have the LIVE entertainment!

Rhythms of Life  Garbage crisis  by Penny Fuller  "B.C. is having a garbage  crisis," the man on my TV set  told me last week. Well, I'd  suspected as much. "People in  this province keep buying things  they don't need and then throw  them out," he explained.  Alright, I know a call to arms  when I hear it. I know my duty.  There are things that must be  said (or written) and I will write  them.  Something about spring  always seems to bring out the  buying urge in each of us. When  the Sun moves into Taurus, on  April 21, people tend to do one  of two things, either they head  for their gardens or they decide  to buy 'things'. Both very  Taurean urges.  Watching the green shades  spreading over the landscape  and the flowers bursting  through, each of us wants to  participate in the beautification  process. Those who direct this  drive into gardening save even  more 'bucks' than they know.  The rest of us start looking at  spring wardrobes and new furniture.  This year has been even worse  than usual, as Jupiter, the  planet of optimism and  generosity has been in Taurus as  well (since March). The only  people who appear to be impervious to this influence are bill  collectors. So, if you're not  ready lo declare bankruptcy  already, it's time to lock up the  credit cards and get back on a  budget.  Seriously, things could be  getting out of hand. Many people have been telling themselves  how long It's been since they  bought anything frivolous for  themselves, how important it is  to give to themselves, etc. But  Jupiter is only half way through  Taurus, and this trend could go  on through most of July. By  that time you could be in serious  financial difficulty.  If you don't have a garden to  divert you, get out to the  beaches or parks and walk, jog  or run until you're too tired to  go to the store. Start thinking  about inner beauty, the beauty  of nature. Try to jog loose any  remaining vestiges of Sixties  values and cultivate them for  the next few months.  Remember? Material things  don't matter and all that.  The urge to acquire things is  truly only a symptom of a  greater need to feel attractive  and secure, but bills that can't  be paid will undermine any  momentary reassurance that  you get from a spending spree.  It's time to start looking at less  superficial ways of satisfying  those needs.  Besides, the man said B.C. is  having a hard time getting rid of  its garbage and as loyal citizens,  it's up to each of us to find  some non-disposable security.  Trivia Prizes  IWED.

My friend and I decided to celebrale early since I work Sundays, and she liked the idea of celebrating twice. Our choice for  our special evening out was the Wharf Restaurant in Davis Bay.  Making a decision on one thing from Iheir tempting menu was  one of the most difficult tasks facing us that evening. Sipping  our wine, we deliberated over the extensive list of appetizers and  finally decided on stuffed mushroom caps and calamari.  A loaf of fresh warm bread quietly appeared on our table  along with a dish of cottage cheese to nibble on. The appetizers  arrived, beautifully arranged and of course, smelling delicious.  The mushroom caps, stuffed with crab meat and smothered with  melted cheese were, need I say it, absolutely decadent. The  calamaris were equally delightful.  After an appropriate length of time, allowing our appetite to  rekindle, the entrees arrived. Her Rack of Lamb, with a tasty  mint sauce was absolutely succulent she assured me, and the  garden fresh vegetables steaming hot, though still firm.  My entree was a more exotic dish, consisting of smoked  salmon and vegetables in a delicately spiced cream sauce, and  baked in a flaky pastry shell. A rice pilaf and colourful array of  vegetables completed the meal. I think we surprised ourselves  and our waiter by eating every morsel.  We didn't think we could possibly have room for dessert, but  our understanding waiter gave us enough time to consider the  question, and we gave in and savoured home-made cheese cake  with a fresh strawberry topping. The perfect touch to a most  satisfying meal.  Creek House - Intimate dining and  European cuisine in a sophisticated yet  casual atmosphere.

Please all players, members  and non-members, remember to  repair ball marks caused when  the ball lands hard on the green.  This is standard practice on all  golf courses but is being badly  neglected on our course,  resulting in some deep holes lo  putt over at times.  Last, but not least, the Golf  Association has ruled that rakes  shall be placed completely in the  sand traps and not left on the  grass adjacent to same. Many  players are still leaving Ihese  rakes on the edge of traps,  resulting in keeping some balls  from entering the traps where  everyone knows they belong.  The latest rule coming out of  the works reads as follows: any  ball passing over the hole and  not dropping inlo same is deemed lo have dropped into the  hole, because if it does not drop  in it is defying the laws of gravity and this is not acceptable. So  govern yourselves accordingly.

The Old  Testament book of Judges informs us (hat by 1250 BC,  desert travelers learned how to  create a boyl of water in the  middle of thddesert by wringing  out sheepskins left outside overnight. The ward 'Iamb' appears  111 times, ant) 'sheep' 165 times  in the Old Testament.  The first written record of  sheep prized for their fleece is  found in the Old Testament  book of Amos, circa 787 BC.  The minor prophet Amos was  called, in Hebrew, a 'noadhim'  or shepherd of Ihe nagad sheep.  Naquads were much prized for  their outstanding, dense, soft  textured, high quality wool. The  wool of other breeds is much  coarser, producing the scratchy  or itchy feeling experienced in  most woven wool garments.  The historical link is missing  that connects naquads positively  to Merino, but a much favoured  breed of North African sheep  were so valued for their consistent production of large  amounts of fine quality wool  that when the Moors controlled  North Africa and the Middle  East in the 13th century, the  Spanish king imported these  animals into Spain, (there the  Spanish name 'Merino' was  coined.)  The Spanish kings became so  enamoured with the export earnings of these animals' fine  fleece that they cornered the  market by making it a crime,  punishable by death, to export  Merinos out of the Spanish  realm. Not only did the king  prohibit domestic fences, he  gave shepherds the right of way  to graze Merino anywhere in the  500 mile semi-annual moves to  better grazing pastures, including the peasants' fields and  gardens. The shepherds (Basques) were quick to discover  that the finer the fodder, the  finer the fleece, and the finer the  fetch at the market. At a time  when the land owning  aristocracy not only owned  most of the sheep and had a  head tax on all others, they were  taxing the peasants an additional 60 percent of their food  production. The age old  animosity between Cain and  Abel (farmer and shepherd)  developed into the domestic  issue fomenting civil war in  feudal Spain. The church's  position at the time varied between ambivalence at best, to cooperation enforced with the terror of the Inquisition at worst.  Even after seven centuries of  peasant revolts, famines,  plagues, crusades, complaints to  the church, and continuous  countryside civil strife the social  discontent has never been fully  resolved.  Although the injustice was  responsible for some minor improvements in the land tenure  laws and church reformation,  the shepherds by and large have  prevailed until this day as the  Great Gifts for  .Mother's Day  - Hand painted silk scarves  - Scarf buckles  - Fashion jewelery  - Hand bags  - Belts  2nd JMl Boutique  Hwy 101, Sechell  885-3132  r*a>i     Gibsons  k��f Swimming Pool  Jan.11 ���  June 30,1988  MONDAY & WEDNESDAY  Early Bird 6:30am ��� 830a m.

'Futures' trading  in commodities originated (in  the 12th century) with Cistercian monks who sold future  wool production from their own  Merino flocks as ransom to  rescue Richard the Lionhearted  from the Austrians, and then  never paid in full. At present  the sheep migrations are  restricted to migration 'corridors', but sheep still pass  through some town centres,  munching every flower, shrub  and unattended garden in sight.  Even though the English were  seriously in the wool business  for three centuries, the  Spaniards jealously guarded  their monoply in Merinos until  the mid-18th century. By then  the English had conquered large  parts of the Spanish domain.  Flocks of Merino sheep were  then established in the British  Isles. The British, in turn,  transplanted Merinos to  Australia toward the end of the  18th century because a large  pool of cheap (penal) labour  was created for the back breaking work of shearing sheep.  Whenever the demand for  labour increased (in the rapidly  expanding wool market) the  British courts handed out stiffer  sentences for crimes previously  considered misdemeanors. Convicts were given the choice of  languishing in the brutal British  prison system, or being  'transported' to Australia.

Coast News, May 2,1988  On Chinook restrictions  Commercial fishermen state case  by the United Fishermen  and Allied Workers' Union  Statistics show clearly that  the lower Gulf of Georgia  stocks in the Nanaimo, Cowichan, Chemainus and Squamish  river systems are in a serious  state of decline. The reason for  this state of decline is best illustrated in Mr. Siddon's own  words during his press release of  March 7, 1988, in which he  stated:  "The chinook of the lower  Georgia Strait are more  valuable to fishermen than any  other fish. They do not migrate  to the relative safety of the open  waters of the Pacific Ocean. For  the most part, they stay in  Georgia Strait with some venturing up Johnstone Strait and  into Queen Charlotte Sound.  Throughout their lifetime, these  unique salmon remain largely in  the confines of Georgia Strait  where they are easily accessible  to most British Columbians.  This makes them especially  susceptible to year round  harvesting and overfishing."  In the same press release, the  DFO points out that the greatest  interceptor of those lower  Georgia Strait stocks is the  recreational fleet.  Take of chinook catch in  lower Georgia Strait stocks based on 1984-1986 catches and  1982 brood year - Gulf of  Georgia Sport Fishery - 59 percent; Gulf of Georgia Troll  Fishery - 5 percent; Johnstone  Strait Net Fleet - 14 percent;  Central B.C. Troll Fleet - 6 percent; Central B.C. Net Fleet - 4  percent; Other - 12 percent.  With the exception of the  Gulf of Georgia troll fishery,  which has been already cut to  the point of virtual extinction,  these commercial catches of  lower Gulf chinooks are purely  of a coincidental nature. Once  again, if we further cut back on  these commercial fisheries in  order to gain minimal reductions in these by-catches, we  must recognize the drastic  economic impact it will have on  the commercial fishery for other  healthy and viable species of  salmon.  Clearly, if we are to  dramatically improve the survival rate of the lower Georgia  Strait stocks, we must take  serious action to curb the major  harvester which is the recreational fleet.  While we commend the  Minister in reducing the annual  bag limit for the recreational  fleet, we respectfully submit  that this measure will not be  sufficient since ihere are approximately 400,000 sports  fishermen registered in B.C. If  they all took Iheir hypothetical  quota of eight chinooks per  year, the total catch would be a  staggering 3.2 million chinooks.  Obviously, without a reasonable catch ceiling level in place,  the potential catch by the  recreational fleet still represents  a serious problem.  These 'chinook conservation  tags' are something of a  misnomer as they will do  nothing to reduce the catch or  fishing effort on chinook, and  will not provide any new data  on chinook abundance, movements, or behaviour. As well,  there is little scientific value in  the tagging program to aid DFO  technical staff in their effort to  rebuild lower Georgia Strait  stocks. Little can be done by  placing a tag on a fish after it's  caught; conservation is best  done when fish are still in the  water. Further, by distributing  tags to fishermen, Siddon appears to be conferring property  rights to chinook salmon, to the  point where a fisherman who  might have been happy with  m   moison   m  ^CANADIAN?  ii  says  GGG'  y  For details ask Sherry...at 886-2325  SEA CAVALCADE '88 PLANNING  is going ahead under full steam  Blowing up the Boat, Fireworks  Water Sports, Music and Dancing  Lots to eat and drink  A Full Program For Gibsons Teens  (A new and exciting addition)  Including a Youngster Dog Fish Derby  WATCH THIS SPACE FOR DETAILS  two chinook a year in the pasl  would now want to get the other  six, which they now may feel  legitimately belong to them.  Above all else, the implementation of the tagging program  will cause major enforcement  problems as DFO officials have  admitted that there are no plans  to increase the budget and staff  in order to supervise the program in the field.  We also fear some of the  possible adverse effects of the  tagging program on the efficiency of the net and troll fisheries  during the course of the season.  Can one imagine a West Coast  troller leaving the grounds during the peak of the season  because he underestimated the  number of tags he might need?  Similarly, can we reasonably expect a crew of seiners to stop in  the unbelievable competitive  peak of the sockeye season  while they sort through their  fish in order to tag the  chinooks?  In conclusion, we believe the  DFO's Chinook Conservation  Tagging Program will not solve  the current crisis concerning the  stage of the lower Gulf of  Georgia chinook stocks.  Therefore, we call upon the  Minister to scrap the program  and implement instead a real  program of action that will  reverse the decline in these  stocks and at the same time  maintain fishing opportunities  for commercial, recreational  and native fishermen. We offer  the following recommendations:  1. The DFO should consider  time and area closures for the  recreational fleet that will protect endangered stocks, yet be  flexible enough to allow fishing  opportunity on stronger stocks.  2. Despite the fact the commercial fishery has already  taken as many cutbacks as it can  reasonably stand in order to  conserve chinook salmon  coastwide, we are prepared to  discuss with the DFO, ways and  means by which the by-catches  of chinook destined to the lower  Georgia Strait streams can be  reduced and yet leave the  various commercial fisheries on  the other species intact.  3. The DFO should, in consultation with the recreational  fishery, consider changes to the  type of gear used by the recreational fishery. This may include  the elimination of the use of  downriggers,   triple   barbed  hooks and live bait. While this  sort of action may seem harsh  to some of the commercial  sports fishing interests, such a  reduction in gear efficiency  should not diminish the 'sporting' experience for the majority  of recreational fLhermen. This  is certainly a preferable alternative to an outright closure,  which is inevitable if nothing is  done to reverse the decline in  the lower Gulf of Georgia  chinook stocks.  4. The DFO should stop the  promotion of any catch and  release derbies, as they will only  lead to excessive mortality rates.  5. The DFO should step up  its enforcement budget to prevent the loss of spawning stocks  to poachers.  6. With all the regulations  that Canadian fishermen have  endured over the years, we find  it incredible that our government is contemplating permitting access to Canadian waters  by US charter operators.  Therefore, we call upon the  federal government to ban the  entry of foreign and American  sports fishing guides and charter  operators.  7. We call upon the federal  government to renew its efforts  at the level of the Canada/US  Treaty, to call for the reduction  of the US recreational and commercial fishery that targets on  Canadian stcfcks in Puget  Sound and Point Roberts.  8. We recommend that the  DFO take major steps to protect  and rehabilitate habitat in all  B.C. streams supporting  chinook salmon. This would include a program to rectify the  adverse effects from past logging and mining operations as  well as pulp mill effluent and  sewage disposal, etc.  9. We call upon the DFO to  reduce the recreational catch by  the same 20 percent margin they  have reduced the Gulf of  Georgia troll catch. In 1987,  Gulf trailers had a catch of  42,000. This year the Minister  of Fisheries proposes a limit of  35,000. Therefore, we would  recommend a similar cut in the  recreational catch of 1987 from  125,000 to 100,000 in 1988.  10. We call upon the DFO to  conduct an independent audit  of the catch statistics of  chinooks by both the commercial and recreational fisheries.  11. We call for a program to  control the impact of predators  on the Gulf of Georgia chinook  stocks.

Representative of Ford's expanding multinational approach to automotive design and engineering, the Probe  is the product of a five-year cooperative program between  Ford and Mazda.  "The result is an exciting, contemporary product,  featuring the sophistication and performance which consumers would expect from an upscale specialty car, plus  numerous distinctive design and technical features unique  to Probe," said South Coast's Sales Manager, Harvie Mc-  Cracken.  The Probe is available in one body style: a two-door  sport hatchback featuring 2 + 2 seating, and is offered in  three series: CL, LX and CT. Probe's body and interior  were designed by Ford's North American Design studios.  The exterior design places emphasis upon aerodynamic  efficiency. The resulting drag coefficient of .304 (.32 for  the CT with wider tires) is among the industry's best.  In addition to 2+2 seating, the interior features  generous luggage space with split fold-down rear seat,  and a high level of standard equipment on all models.  Probe's 4-cylinder engine is produced by Mazda.  Displacing 2.2 litres, it features three valves per cylinder,  electronic fuel injection, and, for the CT, turbochaHng  with intercooler.  The chassis is also a Mazda design, but incorporates a  number of Ford suspension modifications exclusive to the  Probe. It features 4-wheel independent suspension,  nitrogen gas-pressurized struts, and rack-and-pinion steering. The CT series incorporates computer-controlled  automatic-adjusting suspension, electronically controlled  variable assist power steering, and 4-wheel disc brakes  with optional anti-lock system.  In evaluating the Probe's performance, three-time  world driving champion, Jackie Stewart observed, "I am  tremendously impressed by the car's predictable handling, and the broad torque curve of the engine. It's  thoroughly enjoyable to drive in both everyday and high-  performance situations."  The Probe is targeted toward success-minded,  discriminating, import-oriented Canadian buyers. It will  broaden Ford's presence in the small-specialty segment  by supplementing the successful Mustang which appeals  to North American-oriented buyers.  "Our emphasis is on outstanding quality, style, and  value for money," added Harvie McCracken. "The Probe  will rival established Japanese specialty entries such as  Toyota Celica, Honda Prelude and Nissan 200SX with a  designed-in-North America, made-in-North America alternative of unquestionable value."  Probe prices begin at $13,458.

Note: a copy of the  following letter was received for  publication.  The School Board  School District No. 46  RE: Budget 1988/89 - French  Immersion  I refer to the public discussion we had at Chatelech regarding the above subject. You  identified two problems which  cause severe strains on your  financial resources, viz. (1) the  geographical situation and (2)  special care students.  With regards to (1) you hope  to increase efficiency through  busing pre-graduate pupils  from small schools to larger  schools for such special subjects  as Physics, Chemistry, etc.  With regards to (2) your obvious endeavour should be that  there is no further increase in  pupils who are in special care.  In my opinion French Immersion causes many problems in  the education of children, which  ; must lead lo confusion in a  ; pupil's   mind   and   therefore  makes him/her liable for special  need.  If you are educated in a  foreign language, but your entire environment is based on  English, confusion is bound to  develop in the majority of  children.  Having had extensive exposure to multilingual education both personally and  familywise I know what you  learn in one language imprints  itself in you for the rest of your  life! Therefore, it stands to  reason that once the French Im-  merson students graduate from  high school they will face major  problems, unless they elect lo  continue with Iheir studies in  Quebec or France.  It is unlikely that the universities in B.C. or other English  speaking provinces will offer the  normal university courses in  French. All the basic knowledge  the French Immersion students  have learned will have to be  translated into English under  No blame on Buchan  : Editor:  For some time now the  District of Sechelt Council has  been concerned aboul the time  restrictions currently in existence at the Municipal Office,  for the plannning services.  A suggestion was made to increase the planning time from 2  to 4 days per week, but was rejected. This resulted in a decision to hire a full-time  municipal planner, who could  also assist in economic development and municipal administration. Subsequently an ad was  placed in the Vancouver  newspapers, with a deadline for  receiving applications of May 9,  1988.  Due to a misunderstanding  regarding the future status of  ; Mr. Buchan at meetings held on  : April 21 and 22, 1988, Mr. Jim  I Johnstone was asked to assist in  the planning and on Monday,  April 25, 1988, was in the  municipal office for orientation  and familiarization with current  bylaws and plannning policy.  During the nexl two days the  misunderstanding was cleared  up and Mr. Buchan is continuing his Thursday and Friday office hours at the Municipal Hall  until such time as a full-time  planner is hired and there has  been an orderly transition  period.  The incident was in no way  the fault of Mr. Buchan and  should not reflect on his otherwise excellent record and  reputation with the District of  Sechelt. We apologize for these  circumstances of events and for  any inconvenience caused Mr.  Buchan and the general public  due to this incident.

Now, the BCIT is  providing trades programs,  business programs and is struggling to maintain the quality of  the technology programs.  B.C. needs a first class institute of technology. The  British Columbia Institute of  Technology can fill ihis need,  but first it must clean up its act  and get back to being a first  class institute of technology. If  a revised funding formula is required to pay for these high cost  technology programs, then this  funding should be provided.  J.H. Carradice, A.Sc.T.

It normally takes at leas! one  full year in order to adjust lo a  change in language! Who pays  for this adjustment timewise  and money-wise? The same applies not only to universities,  but to technical colleges and  other post-graduate learning institutions.  Therefore, I earnestly request  you to abandon French Immersion in our school district and to  concentrate your efforts on the  commonly acceptable school  education wilhoul frills. Your  endeavour should be lo reduce  the incidence of special care tuition by monitoring the performance of teachers, who are well  paid and should 'deliver the  goods' to our society.  Learning a second language is  a very enriching experience,  bul it should be offered in the  traditional way. French should  be taught as a second language,  from grade seven or maybe even  from grade four onwards. It can  be intensified in high school so  thai by graduation time the  students have a working  knowledge in French. Those  who want to perfect Iheir  knowledge in French would be  encouraged to spend six months  or more in Quebec or France,  maybe through'a student exchange.  Summing up I strongly  recommend to you lo make wise  use of the monetary and human  resources so lhat you can  operate a good educational  system in our district withoul  having to drive up the school  taxes to intolerably high levels.

Last week's winner was  Jean Likes, Box 72, Madeira Park, who correctly identified Ihe  Highways Maintenance Yard al Madeira I'ark. B.C.  In a nutshell  Early days  of flying  and film  by S. Nutter  Some nice early film footage  on Ihe program 'Television'  currently running Thursdays on  Ihe KNO network pul me in  mind of Ihe lime when I myself  first met John Grierson, Ihe  Father of Documentary.  It was in '43, earliesl days of  film in Canada. 1 was in Air  Force blue navigating flying  boats (amphibious) oul of Newfoundland. 11 was possible to  feel a bil remote oul there in  Gander al lhal time. 1 had two  friends in Ottawa who kepi me  supplied with papers and letters,  bul if Iheir intention was lo  'keep up the spirits of Ihe boys'  Ihey weren't doing much for my  spirits. They were obviously  leading a much more exciting  life than I. They were part of  the small group of young Canadians who had been chosen to  help start the National Film  Board.  My object then would be lo  get to Ottawa as often as possible, and most of the opportunities came when we'd fly the  Air Officer commanding the  group there for meetings at HQ.  The pilot on Ihese trips would  be our Squadron O.C., Freddy  Ewart, a bush pilol in the  N.W.T. before the war. I had  the choosing of the navigators,  no problem.  On this occasion, early in '43,  it didn't look too promising.  We were lo get him there early  in the morning, he would meel  during ihe day, and we would  come back thai night. However  1 took a couple of bottles of  Cutty Sark stashed in the  navigator's lock-up jusi in case.  There was rationing in Ottawa  in those days.  It was a much longer trip  than now of course, our top  speed was 115 kms. and cold.  We had heaters but they 'tended  to catch on fire'. Unless rigor-  mortis seemed actually setting in  Ihey stayed off. Bul the wind  died and we gol there earlier  than I had thoughl, slill dark. 1  went up and touched Freddy on  the shoulder. "We're here", I  said.  Freddy gave a bil of a slarl  (the aircraft was on 'George).  "Whal?" he said, "There?" He  looked oul. 1 looked out (1 had  been on radio). Jusi a very  sparse sprinkling of lights.  "Where's the flaming airport?"  he said. I looked again. Sure  enough, no airporl. "They musl  have the lights out," I said.  "We'll try the tower."  We tried the tower and tried,  and tried. No answer. By now  he was looking at me with frank  suspicion. He thought 1 had  landed us over Rouyn or some  such place. Then the voice of  one jolted awake came on.  "Whal? What? Who's there?",  il said. 1 passed the mike to  Freddy. "You're Ihrough", I  said, "Ottawa."  Freddy's mike approach was  always lo bellow. He bellowed.  The controller, alerted forcibly  lo ihe fact we were an Air Vice-  Marshall, held to ihe view that  he had no orders. It was just  half an hour to dawn he said.  "Goddam, I'm not stooging  around up here for hours with  ihe Air Vice-Marshall," roared  Freddy. "Flaming well turn on  Ihe bloodstained lights " etc.  and al last they came on. We  did an immediate steep tight  turn such as ihe old Canso was  rarely subjected to and were  descending rapidly to the end of  the runway when the voice came  on again.  "1 have your orders," it said.  "Don'l land here. Land at  Rockcliff. I repeat..." Freddy's  roar could be heard over the  engines al ihe back of the aircraft. He smashed us down on  the runway, taxied furiously  around and went to park near  the tower at the end of a  hangar. Jusi before we came to  a stop, there was a jolt, a crunching sound.  Which is how 1 came to be  that night at ihe Film Board  parly where Grierson was. Freddy had put a nice notch in the  end of the wing, two days  worth. Pan way 1 went to the  kitchen to replenish my drink.  Grierson was there, re-filling  with Cully Sark. We had a  stimulating (for me) chat on the  future of film. He offered me  anolher drink of my Cutty  Sark. Il was his favourite  scotch, as I'd known.  $���^.00  +Jr  REBATE!

For many municipal  employees, il meant setting  aside a day's work, but according lo workers in the sewage  treatment plant, it was an investment that might save them  work.  The pet peeve and the constant plague facing plant  employees is the things that people flush down toilets. And according to them, it does not go  unnoticed and does create a  problem.  There is a grate where the  sewage enters the plant that  screens out all inorganic objects  that come through the pipes and  which must be raked clean by  hand several times a day.  "You couldn't believe what  comes through there," said one  employee. "We even get nylon  stockings and lingerie, I guess  people must accidently drop  stuff in the toilet and don't  want to pick it out."  "Feminine hygiene products  are the worst offenders," he  continued,  "a lot of people  don't realize it but a lot of those  products swell to an enormous  size when in water." He went  on to state that even a single  tampon has been known to  block a sewer line.  "In my house all those products are wrapped and go into  the garbage," he said.  Gibsons' public works is  planning an automatic raking  system for the sewer sometime  in the future.
