 I.KGISLATIVK LIBRARY  Parliament Buildings  Victoria, B.C. V8V 1X4  50 cents per copy on news stands  SERVING THE SUNSHINE COAST SINCE 1945  February 17, 1992    Volume 4(>     Issue 07  Court quashes Gospel Rock tree bylaw  Supreme Court rules geotechnical evidence lacking  by Jane Seyd  A decision handed down Wednesday  by the Supreme Court of British  Columbia has declared invalid a Gibsons' bylaw which sought to control  development on part of Gospel Rock.  Council passed Bylaw 632-1 May 6.  1991, designating the plateau area of  Gospel Rock as a tree-cutting permit  area, under a section of the Municipal  Act allowing local governments to regulate or prohibit tree-cutting on land con  sidered subject to flooding, erosion, land  slip or avalanche.  In his decision quashing the bylaw,  however. Mr. Justice Skipp found it was  the "perceived opposition" of Gibsons  residents to development of Gospel  Rock, rather than specific geotechnical  concerns, which motivated the bylaw. It  was therefore enacted on irrelevant  grounds, the judge concluded.  Another bylaw (623) which prohibits  tree-cutting on the ocean-front and bluff  areas of Gospel Rock was upheld in the  decision. Skipp also upheld sections of  Gibsons' official community plan designating parts of Gospel Rock as development permit areas.  In order for a bylaw on the Gospel  Rock plateau to succeed, Gibsons would  have to possess definitive technical evidence that the area was environmentally  sensitive or subject lo flooding and erosion, said Skipp in his judgment.  The judge added thai there was noth  ing to prevent Gibsons from passing  another tree-cutting bylaw for the Gospel  Rock plateau once it had hard geotechnical evidence indicating potential ecological hazard.  "It would, in my view, however, be  preferable if the parties arrived at a solution which would involve a compromise  and I define compromise as each side  making concessions," he said.  Mayor Eric Small said the decision  was positive in that it upheld three of the  town's important bylaw, and Qlbl 10%'  community plan, despite the quuhln| '1  Bylaw 623-1. He also agreed with  Skipp's urge for compromise between  developer Hayden Killani and the municipality. "That's something thai strongly  appeals to me," he said, adding that  negotiations with the developer have  already started "behind the scenes."  Said Small: "We're taking a positive  approach that Mr. Killani will want to  proceed wilh those negotiations."  Parent and IWA  want book out of  school libraries  by Jane Seyd  It doesn't have any of the more conventionally titillating descriptions of sex, and the most controversial four-letter word il contains is  "tree".  But a recent children's book, Maxinc's Tree by Diane Leger-  Ilaskell, has something potentially even more inflammatory in  today's forestry climate - an environmental point of view.  That has led to a complaint from one parent, Jim Gibson, and a  request from Murray Cantelon, president of the local chapter of the  IWA, that the school district remove the book from elementary  school libraries on the Sunshine Coast.  Gibson, who is a fourth-generation logger on the Coast, said he  first became upsel about the book when his six-year-old daughter  brought it home to read from West Sechell elementary school, and  consequently began making statements that logging was a "bad"  occupation. "I found il to be a very one-sided book," said Gibson.  "And I'm not the only parent of a logging family who's had to face  this sort of thing."  When the situation wasn't resolved lo his satisfaction at the  school, Gibson decided lo take his complaint to trustees, along with  the local IWA leader.  "What we are saying is we would like lo see a balance there," said  Cantelon. "We haven't seen it as our role in life lo publish propaganda that justifies what we do for a living. But in absence of a book  like lhat, we would like to think they would voluntarily choose not to  have (Maxine's Tree) in the library."  In his written complaint lo the school board, Cantelon said the  book presented a "bias" of an "extreme environmental group" which  "would lead an impressionable mind lo believe that all logging is bad  turn In page 14  Jill Venechuk held a few surprises for Garry Gray at Elphinstone High's Valentines Day Cakewalk.  Joel Johnstone photo  Two years' work of local artist  vanishes as thieves hit arts centre  by Jane Seyd  It isn't what is usually meant  by "art appreciation."  But somebody obviously  knew what they wanted last  week at the arts centre in Sechell  - and how to gel it.  Thursday morning, curator  Larry Westlake arrived lo find  the glass panel in the iront door  of Ihe centre smashed in, the  back doors open and the w ire for  the alarm system cut.  Inside, an exhibit of elaborately designed and embroidered  clothing by artist Paula Seifred  was conspicuously absent  Thieves made off wilh six  full-length silk dresses, all of  which were richly dyed and  beaded, and one embroidered  winter coat, which formed half  of Seifrcd's display at the centre.  The other half of the display,  consisting of painted panels  which formed backdrops for the  clothing, was left untouched.  Also untouched were some  other pieces of Seifred's art on  display, and the interior of the  centre itself, although some  money totalling less than $100  was taken from a cash float in  the desk.  "I don't know if they knew  what they were doing as far as  what they were actually taking,"  said Westlake on Wednesday  "But they certainly knew their  way around the arts centre."  To help them out, the thieves  also took the labels from the  walls beside the exhibit, which  explained the work and gave a  selling price of the panel and  Arts Centre curator Larry Westlake remade what he could of Paula Seifred's  Surface/Resurface  exhibition following a theft from the Arts Centre.  Joel Johnstone photo  clothing combination.  "It was gone through in such  a fashion thai it doesn't look like  young kids," said Corporal  Armet of the Sechelt RCMP  detachment. "He or she knew  what they were after."  Seifred said she was both  "shocked and amazed" at the  robbery, which represented  about two years of work and a  value of approximately $9,000  (which should be covered by the  centre's insurance policy if the  work is not recovered).  And everyone expressed  sttprised at the thieves unconventional choice of art. "They're  very distinctive," said Seifred  about the dresses. "They  couldn't be worn with much  confidence because someone  would see litem," Only one or  two very specialized shops  would buy the art for anything  near what it is worth, she said.  and Ihey would only buy directly  from the artist. Anyone else  would be unlikely lo pay mote  than a couple of hundred dollars.  Said Westlake, "They would  be extremely difficult to sell."  The only advantage offered  by Ihe exhibit was portability.  Because the fabric was very  sheer, all the clothing would  likely fit into a small shopping  bag, said Seifred.  Both Westlake and Seifred  expressed relief lhat Ihe arts centre itself and the rest of the  exhibit weren't vandalized. The  cash lockups and liquor cabinet  had been opened, and "there had  been a small beer parly in the  kitchen," said Westlake, but  nothing else had been disturbed.  Westlake said he was especially upset that the alarm system was so easily by-passed. "In  retrospect, it was completely  inadequate," he said.  Seifred said she would be  offering a reward for Ihe return  of the dresses, and still plans to  go ahead with her talk and slide  show on the art this week at the  arts centre. "1 wonder if (the  thieves) will come," she said.  Westlake said donalions have  been taken from the cash box at  the centre before, but this is the  first time works of art have actually been stolen. "This is all part  of our cultural growth on the  Sunshine Coast," he commented.  Gibsons wrestles  with impasse over  bypass planning  by Charles Hart  Gibsons residents have petitioned the highways ministry to  alter its bypass plans, arguing  phase two should be constructed  to Henry Road rather than  Payne Road as is currently proposed.  The petition says the  Payne/Pratt Road area is already  too congested and argues that  bringing the Gibsons bypass out  there will only add to existing  traffic problems.  But when Gibsons council  discussed the issue Tuesday,  Aid. John McNevin said Henry  Road would be an equally dangerous location to develop an  interesection. "There's already a  dangerous dip which would  have to be four-laned." he said.  McNevin argued the bypass  should be extended to the  Peninsula Hotel, as was originally proposed. "1 don't want  the government to use (lack of)  funding as an excuse not to finish the project," he said. Powell  River-Sunshine Coasl MLA  Gordon Wilson is also lobbv, ing  the ministry to construct all  three phases of the bypass at  once.  A letter from the ministry lo  council notes the Payne location  was previously supported b) the  SCRD and Gibsons, and says  some of Ihe right ol -way lot the  route has already been acquired  The letter adds that rerouting  the highway west to the Penin  sula Hotel would be clone in a  future extension.  Council decided lo refer the  matter to planner Rob Buchan  for a report before replying to  the ministry.  Hospital employee's  union votes to strike  by Stuart burnside  Si Mary's Hospital Employee Union members voted SI per cent in  favour of strike action Wednesday. "Thai's about on a par with the  rest of the province," according to HEU spokesman Chris Gainor  Gainor told the Coast News that strike action wouldn't be taken  unless talks resumed with Ihe Health Labour Relations Association  (HLRA) Feb. 15 prove unsuccessful. He said a decision lo strike*  could come as early as this week, but added that a decision lo strike  required 72 hours notice.  HLRA spokesman Martin Livingston told the Coast News he  didn't think the HEU would strike. "I don't think the majority ol ihe  Union members want lo walk out. Tlte economic conditions lhat exist  at this lime make il hard for people to give up their jobs."  turn to page 2 Coast News.

At the suttttestion of his friend, Yugoslavian gynecologist Prof Dr.  Osuuiiairtic, Dr Salomon gave MKLRHOS1A to some of his patients. The result  was so surprising, he began a series of studies with patients in Hamburg. Now  studies on some 500 women have been completed.  The women were between 40 and 60 years old. could not be treated with  hormones due to health problems, and did not get ttie desired results from  other herbal preparations. Every woman had to take three capsules of  NELBROSIA daily during the three month therapy.  The women leported improvement after the first 10 days. After another 10  days, one third of the women declared they had no more hot flushes or  palpitations.  At the third examination after 30 days, 82 percent of the women were  completely symptom-free. The other women reported a remarkable decrease of  symptoms. Dr. Salomon recommended his patients take MELBROSIA regularly  in order to build a store house of concentrated vitality.  The pollen ��� roval jelly mixture contains vitamins A. C, D, and K. as well as the  entire complex of B vitamins, mineral and trace elements, to provide valuable  building blocks for the immune system.  The most significant results of Dr. Salomon's therapy studies were: the  cessation of insomnia; a decrease in physical aches and pains and all  headaches; and increased vitality  Prof Dr. Neil Lyall. a British nutritional scientist established that the regular  intake   of  NELBROSIA   stimulates   the  function of the ovaries and generally provides  a rejuvenating effect Two to three capsules  should be taken daily before breakfast by  opening the capsules and letting the contents  dissolve  under  the   tongue  for  several  minutes.  Aside from taking MELBROSIA, proper  nutrition, supplements, herbs, exercise, and  adequate rest also play important roles in  helping to alleviate menopausal symptoms.

Livingston noted that an 81 per cent vole didn't  mean 81 per cent of HEU members favour a strike.  "At Vancouver General, 700 of the 2,600 eligible  HEU workers voled, but their vote is counted as  100 per cent of the HEU members." He noted that  "only 39 per cent of those 700 voted in favour of a  strike.  The HEU and the HLRA have been negotiating  over a varitety of issues for more than a year, but  the dominant issue, according lo the HEU, is pay  equity. HEU employees have taken the stand there  are pay discrepancies between female workers and  their male counterparts.  Also at issue are large pay raises for hospital  administrators. The HEU says administrators have  had their wages raised more than .W per cent in the  last year while HEU workers have seen an increase  of only six percent. .  Livingston maintained Ihe pay increases for  upper management were necessary to keep administrators from being lured East where wages are  "substantially higher." Livingston also noted that  administrators had their wages frozen in 1988.  Members of the Hospital Employees Union, including staff at St.  Mary's in Sechelt, have voted 78 per cent in favor of strike action. Last  week, however HEU members, including Evelyn Marker and Linda  Moseley, were still on the job at the hospital. Jane  Seyd photo  Development fee hike for Gibsons?  krCtwaiMNart  The cost of Gibsons' development is about to rise - tenfold in the  case of plans requiring a development permit and roughly 30 per cent  for other applications, such as zoning or official community plan  amendments.  Planner Rob Buchan told council Tuesday that municipal fees  have not changed since 1986, while costs have risen substantially.  "To illustrate the point, inflation has caused an increase in costs of 30  per cent from 1986 to 1992 without reflecting any other potential  source of increased costs," Buchan said in a report.  The increased complexity of applications, requiring more staff  time and more frequent use of consultants, lawyers and engineers,  adds further lo municipal costs, Buchan explained. For comparison,  the planner submitted a schedule of fees charged by eight other BC  municipalities. In general, the current rates charged in Gibsons,  except for the $100 development permit fee, are in line with smaller  municipalities listed such as Sechelt and Whistler, but lower than the  larger municipalities of North Vancouver and White Rock.  Mayor Eric Small expressed concern that the proposed development permit hike to $1,000 from $100 could prove a hardship for  residential properties brought into new development permit areas  marked out in the town's draft official community plan. But Buchan  pointed out development permits will only be required for land zoned  commercial, industrial or multi-family, not residential.  Administrator Dan Legg argued the increase is justified, given the  growing complexity of development permits, especially as they relate  to environmental issues.  The other proposed fees would see applications for development  variance permits, community plan and zoning amendments rise to  $1,000 from $700; combined OCP-zoning applications increased to  $1,300 from $700 and board of variance charges hiked lo $130 from  $100.  Council gave first reading to the application fee bylaw.  3-5522 Wharf Rd. Sechelt ��� 885-7001  Going Away  on Vacation?

Recreation resource officer  Bob Rebantad said the "excellent response" has generated a  pool of ideas, which will be presented in a report within the  next few months.  High on the priority list was  preservation and access to old  growth in the Tetrahedron and  Caren Range. Accessible old-  growth is in short supply, while  the demand is increasing. "It's  become a feature in itself that  people want to see," Rebantad  said.  He noted there were also  Improved access  to old growth  high on the  forest recreation  priority list  plenty of suggestions for  improving hiking and biking  opportunities on the Coast, and  described one idea for a circular  roule which would run from  Langdale lo Port Mellon, continue along the new gas pipeline  route to Sechelt, then head back  along the logging roads and old  flume route to Gibsons. "It certainly looks awfully feasible,"  Rebantad said.

"People  identified a lot of little areas,"  Rebantad said.  The Sechelt information session attracted a much stronger  turnout than a similar one the  day before in Powell River,  underlining the fact lhat forest  recreation is comparatively  underdeveloped on the Sunshine Coast. Rebantad said presentations were made by  Friends of Caren, the Tetrahedron Alliance, hiking, biking  and equestrian groups.  Once a report has been compiled, he said the ministry will  draw up a five-year plan and  advance as many low-capital  projects as possible. An annual  budget of $100,000 puts constraints on the amount of recreation development that can be  accomplished, but Rebantad  noted shared work projects with  service and community groups  in Powell River have enabled  the ministry to achieve far more  than the budget alone would  have allowed. He said he hoped  to foster similar community  involvement on the Coast.

Is Gibsons a healthy community? And if so, what makes it  one? No doubt there are as  many opinions on this as there  are contributing factors, but for  me and many others, one very prominent influence  stands out, perhaps  because of its 'high  profile' and the  broad reaching  impact it has on this  community - the  Gibsons Bus.  The Gibsons  Bus, with its 5,000-  plus riders a month,  is in large part the  'connective tissue' that binds  this community together. For  many people it has become an  indispensible service. You only  have to know a few red-eyed  commuters or a housebound  senior, a teenager with weekend  plans, a family from Burnaby  on a Sunday adventure, a local  shopkeeper or a resident from  Keats Island to get the picture.  This bus is not only useable,  it's used. It guarantees freedom  to move to people throughout  our community seven days a  week, 365 days a year. It provides that service with compassion, sensitivity and humour.  Diane Schafer and the other  drivers provide a service  unmatched anywhere else in the  country. Unfortunately, we've  stood back and watched it slowly slip closer and closer to  oblivion.  Transportation is fast becoming a major concern for residents up and down the Sunshine  Coast. Here in Gibsons as elsewhere we are overly dependent  on our cars to keep us mobile.  This is resulting in increasing  ,-,,        , . traffic congestion,  Clearly one of greater pcemiai  the lower  Coast's  environmental  success stories  is dying of  neglect'  for accidents and  deteriorating  air/sound quality.  The planned  expansion of local  highway projects,  parking lots and  ferry service  makes it abundantly clear that  we need to rethink  our transportation system so as  to encourage the use of cleaner  and more environmentally  sound forms of transportation.  Recent discussions have  focused on faster ferries, hourly  service and late night sailings,  all of which will inevitably  increase the number of people  passing through. However, in  the midst of these discussions  resides a most conspicuous  oversight. One of the most  important links in our ability to  move people once they get here  and clearly one of the lower  Coast's environmental success  stories - the Gibsons Bus - is  dying of neglect.  MLA Gordon Wilson's 'town hall meeting' packed a crowd into United Church hall in  Gibsons, Feb.ll. The fate of the Gibsons Bus was one of the topics discussed.  Joel Johnstone photo  Watershed  controls eyed  The regional district will  seek authority to restrict public  vehicle access to. both the lower  Chapman valley watershed and  lo the upper part of ihe Tannis  Lake recreational trail to protect  drinking water.  "We don't want campers  going up there and parking next  to the creek and dumping their  garbage," said alternate director  Harry Almond.  Director Jeremy Frith said  allowing vehicles near the  watersheds could result in oil  and gas pollution of the water  supply.  The regional district will also  look into placing signs to alert  users they are in areas used for  the district's water supply.

Time is running out: the non-profit society set up to  spearhead the fundraising drive has said unequivocally  thai without $15,000 in hand or committed by month's  end, the bus will come grinding to a permanent halt.  Thai would be disastrous for the countless residents,  especially seniors, who rely on the bus to get them around  in a town whose shops and other essential services are  divided by a sleep hill.  Hut there's another dimension here. The town, developing at an unprecedented rate, is already seeing the early  signs of a traffic problem - congestion and an attendant  rise in pollution that will only worsen as the Coast population grows.  Residents expecting a government-subsidized transit  system to solve their transportation ills should think  again. Tlte Coast has so far failed in attempts to expand  the limited schedule of conventional bus service between  (iibsous and Sechelt, let alone secure added funding for  neighbourhood routes within the municipalities themselves.  Once off the roatl, the Gibsons Bus will not be revived.  An essential service will have disappeared and its demise  will eventually be felt by the whole community, not just  those who currently depend on it.  Friends of the (iibsous Bus arc needed now.

There is some substance to Aboriginal Affairs Minister  Andrew Petter's argument that the five-month delay  sought would have allowed breathing room for negotiations outside the court process. But the landmark case,  focusing on title to 57,000 square kilometres of traditional  lands in central B.C., has already been mired in legal proceedings for five years.  Speaking for the appeal court, which is now confronting a series of cases on aboriginal rights, Justice John  Taggart rightly pointed out that negotiations would not be  impeded by the appeal going ahead as planned April 6.  If anything, a bona fide attempt at negotiations stands a  better chance of succeeding with the urgency of a court  date looming.  letters  Ozone depletion  news alarming  Last night, according to television and radio news broadcasts, NASA scientists warned  that the destruction of the ozone  layer is proceeding much more  rapidly than they had thought,  which was demonstrated by the  record of ozone-depletion in  areas other than the north and  south poles. News like this fills  me with alarm.  When we understand that,  even if we stopped release of  ozone-depleting chemicals  today, the pipeline of these substances already travelling  through the atmosphere and  higher layers would continue  the destruction of ozone for a  further 10 years.  Perhaps if we looked at the  problem on a different scale we  would realize the extreme peril.  For example, tiny marine organisms called phytoplankton are  being adversely affected by the  ultra-violet rays which enter the  atmosphere because of the  destruction of the ozone layer.  Phytoplankton really have no  way of protecting themselves.  So, who cares about phytoplankton? We emphatically do.  They are part of the ocean's  important role in removing carbon from the atmosphere and  they are also a food source for  the ocean fish. When they are  gone, what will happen to the  fish or more likely, what is happening to the fish stock right  now? There are many organisms on earth which cannot  shield themselves from this dan  ger. Trees and crops will suffer  increasing leaf and needle burn.  It is also virtually impossible  to protect our children from the  consequences of a depleted  ozone layer. Some time ago,  Vancouver opthalmologist. Dr.  Paul Duboard, warned of eye  damage from UVA, UVB and  UVC rays and recommended  particularly that the eyes of  children should be protected  now. But it is virtually impossible to really protect the eyes and  skin of young children.  There is something we can  do; something we all should do.  We should write to the federal  government and demand that  the production of ozone-depleting chemicals such as freons,  methyl chloroform and CFCs be  halted immediately and that  they not be replaced by another  substance which is almost as  dangerous. Every day wasted in  the elimination of these chemicals increases Ihe danger for all  of us.  PATRICIA BARRETT  Madeira Park  A Cove We Loved  Where once a pretty home-  house stood.

VIOLET TYNER  Madeira Park  Reconsider  tourism funding  As the economy of Canada is  in a slump, I question if now is  the time that the Economic  Development Committee should  deny Travel Sunshine Coast the  small amount of funding the  TSC needs for operating costs  used to encourage tourists lo  this area.  Has Maurice Egan fully  appreciated the amount of work  put into the TSC to encourage  tourists by the past chairman  Vene Parnell, Kay Bailey,  Donna Johnson, Davine Morton  and others.  What we need to do is to  encourage tourists in every way,  so they will stay at least a night  or longer, and by staying, spend  money that will help the local  economy.  This would be preferable  than having visitors arrive by  bus, admire the view and then  depart. Perhaps if the EDC  would reconsider this matter of  funding, il would provide an  incentive to give a boost to the  local economy.  MARY NORTON  Gibsons, BC  Making like cormorants on a misty Pacific morning  What a winter this has been! Sure, there's been  rain from time, to time but nothing you could possibly call winter weather. And when the sun  ijlunes. as it has for days at a time already in 1992,  you can't for the life of you imagine why people  would want to leave this spectacularly beautiful  and gentle place and go to Mexico.  This is a fortunate thing, if your travel plans  and budget cannot possibly allow you to consider  such adventures just now in an> case This is the  oldest wisdom: if you can't afford to go anywhere  it's best to stay where you are.  But when where you are in the northern hemisphere is showing you flowers and buds in early  February (in fact in Sechelt the other day I saw a  flowering tree in full bloom and this not yet Valentine's Day), and when all of these buds and blooms  and blossoming trees are set off with the spectacular beauty of the Pacific Coast mountains and  islands and ocean as a back drop, then staying  where you are is not only painless it is a positive  pleasure.  Now my old friend Jake is as sensible of the  charms of his chosen place as any man alive, but  nonetheless when the misty gentleness of a recent  morning lured us away from the promised chess  game in his cabin and down to the log-strewn cove  nearby, the old man was strangely and uncharac-  musings  John burnside  tensttcally gloomy.  We had selected a dry log to sit on. Across the  cove and beyond the low-lying mist just off shore,  the snow capped peaks of Vancouver Island  marked the western horizon.  In the foreground a squadron of ducks were  sailing by in good order towards the estuary of a  nearby stream. Gulls and crows, too, were beginning to foregather, as the receding tide began to  reveal enough of the beach to make the principal  food-gathering activities of the day possible for  these feathered denizens of the coast Prime time it  was for coastal birds and coastal bird watchers  alike.  Further out in the cove at the edge of the mist  three cormorants rode a floating log in the scarce  noticeable swell of these protected inside waters  on a still day. One cormorant had his wings hung  out to dry; the other two were close gathered and  motionless.  Just to make sure that all residents were  accounted for a great blue heron flapped slowly by  a few feet above the water heading around the corner of the cove to a favourite fishing spot.  The only sound, apart from the occasional marshalling squawk, uttered presumedly by the drill  sergeant of the duck squadron, was the offshore  grumble of a passing tugboat somewhere invisible  behind the mist.  "They are all here today, aren't they?" I said,  breaking a companionable silence in which we had  been jointly digesting the joys of the morning.  "It is assuredly the place to be on such a morning as this. On mornings like this you can imagine  that you are glimpsing a world which is vanishing  faster dun we know. Here is an Eden-like world  where mankind and his makings are not the sum  and the substance of experience; where the fever  and follies of our combatative and acquisitive kind  seem al some remove. Like that tugboat out there,  we know it's there, but we are far enough away  from the roar of its engines and its tow of dead  trees that it doesn't impinge on the harmony of the  morning. This is a rare and a beautiful time."  Jake was not usually this eloquent But beneath  the words, like the muted but clearly heard roar of  the tugboat offshore, a note of sadness endured.  "You seem a little down, oldtimer," I suggested  after a pause again.  Jake was in no hurry to answer, so we watched  the ducks go by; the heron turned the comer of the  cove and disappeared from view; the cormorants  bobbed motionless on their floating log. The sun  came out and silvered the last of the morning mist.  It would be gone by noon.  "Ungrateful, I suppose, is what I am," said my  friend finally. "Being alive and here should be  enough, like those fellows out there," and he nodded towards the birds that shared the cove with us.  "But sometimes you get to thinking that it could  be more like this for everyone everywhere had we  the balance of these unpretentious food gatherers,  the sense to know when enough was enough and to  sit as still and undemanding as the cormorants drying their wings. But this cove of ours is not the  image of the world. Mornings like this make a man  imagine what might have been and what certainly  cannot be in the time alloted him."  He had no more to say. Neither did I. We sat  and watched the sun remove the mist, as silent and  as still as cormorants.  Const  >e Sunshin**> Ccuss!

Coast News, February 17, 1W2  opinion  in a nutshell  s. nutter  Many of us, too many of us maybe, switch into television channels  that have canned laughter cut into iheir programs. Canned laughter is  of course, laughter picked up on tape by some soundman here or  there, and simply dropped into any old program where the producer  would like his audience to laugh. Sure enough, and sadly enough it  seems to me, the audiences come braying in along.  Laughter is perhaps the mast spontaneous thing we do, and to have  it cut up, on tape, and fed to us, second by second, as some producer  devises, has got to be the most down-putting thing in a down-putting  world.  I have never found out where they record this laughter Do they  have auditions somewhere for laughers? And what sort of a notice  would go oul? Laughter needed?  More likely there are these soundmen lurking about with their  microphones at the ready, in places where genuinely funny stuff is  going on, and they get lite gotxl old spontaneous boffo, and then they  sell it (by the fool?) to Ihe producers of this dreary stuff lhat comes  over on night TV.  'Laughter, real laughter'  There has got lo l>e more to il of course. There are manic shrieks,  the same manic shrieks I swear 1 have heard on quite different programs. If a laughter broker has a really good manic shriek, does he  bargain for it? Is there someone out there he can meet and say look,  my manic shriek is hetter than any manic shriek you've got around?  Laughter, real laughter, is of course, our best expression, and this  phoney snipped in stuff has got to be an ultimate crappo. But we take  it. Are we nervous? Do we maybe think that we don't gel Ihe joke? Is  it that we would simply like lo laugh as long as everyone else is  laughing?  I remember a play in Toronto. It was an old-style comedy, and the  laughs or chuckles came as they did, every once in a while. The audience, however, laughed at every second speech, thinking that there  must be a one-liner there.  Laugh is defined in the Oxford dictionary as the instinctive  expression of mirth. Mirth is described as pleasurable feeling, joy and  happiness. Not much that we didn't all know to begin with.  Instinctive, however, would seem to be the executive word. We  obviously can't really describe these things, but we laugh or we don't  laugh, and we laugh instinctively.  'Laughed through the blitz in London'  Generations, centuries, of writers trying to be funny have come  and gone. On the Sunshine Coasl, I think a more cynical, sour perhaps, more stand-apart position has grown. Funny is on the one hand  a nervous reaction, and on the other a strictly in-ctill, personal thing.  This doesn't rule oul Bugs Bunny, Charlie Chaplin, Jack Benny or  any of those fellows. Boh Hope is still with us running over the stories from the old joke book. Good heavens, we are easy enough to  amuse.  So, one wonders, why all this canned laughter? I mean you could  run il in between speeches in the House of Commons. People would  laugh. Run it after a grim story of how Cassiar is going down the  drain, would they laugh do you suppose?  It seems to me that il would be nice if we got rid of all this bogus  boffo. Sure, I suppose, that some laughers will be put out of work,  and maybe there's not all thai much else they can do, but seriously  chaps. Laughter itself is at stake.  Laughter itself is not going to go down the drain. People laughed  through the blitz in London, and some of our best funny stuff has  come from some of our most depressing experiences. Still, we have  never really had this thing before where made-up laughter is fed to us  to make us, presumably dummies, laugh whether we like the stuff or  not.  Fortunately for the sanity of the nation we can turn these things  off, right? At the first hint of canned laughter we switch the channel  over. Maybe what we get is the sex life of the weevil, but we will  have done our bit.

Since trees arc such an integral part of our environment, power outages caused by falling trees  and branches can never be completely eliminated.  However, you can assist in preventing a  significant number of these outages. First, by  marking sure that trees and branches do not  contact your service lines (the wires that run from  the power line to your house); and secondly, by  notifying your local Hydro office of trees on your  property which pose an additional hazard to  nearby public power lines. Examples would  include trees with poor roots and diseased,  damaged or leaning trees. When you call. Hydro  will inspect the site and consult with you on the  appropriate action. If removal of the tree is agreed  upon to protect public power lines, Hydro will  pay the cost.  But please, don't take unnecessary risks by  working near live power lines. Call your local  Hydro office or a certified tree trimming company  for assistance.  By worlting together, we can enjoy the natural  beauty of our environment while minimizing the  potential for service interruptions.

Gordon Wilson  has assured me that Ihe dump  can be open seven days a week.  A transfer station means we  can do our bit for the environment in that we can recycle and  cut down on earth, water and air  pollution.  1 think everyone will agree  lhat our area is growing and  either now or in the future we  will have to deal wilh this.  If we can all just compromise a  little not only will we benefit,  but also our children,  envimoment and our future.  ROSS MACDONALD  AND WENDY MII.NER  Garden Bay  Transfer station:  more cost for less  Those ornery, inconsiderate  Pender Harbourites and Egmon-  slers have really done it this  time. They have worn out Mr.  Jim Gumey's patience.  For over 10 years now Gurney has been trying to close the  Pender Harbour garbage dump  against the will of the people  who use it and pay for it. Back  in 1981 when he was chair of  the public utilities commitlee,  he announced the dump had to  close because it was at the end  of its life and the government  was going to cancel its permit.  This year Mr. Gurney is once  again in charge of garbage and  once again he has ordered the  Pender dump closed. His rea-  & North  ��"a Oaks  767 North Rd.

Once again Ihe  contractor who operates the  dump says it is not full.  As for hazard, the Department of Environment's regional  manager of waste management,  Mike Wong, said during a  recent inspection of the site it  can be kept operating as long as  it is maintained properly. Even  after the present sile is full the  community can start another  local one if that is what they  want, he said.  But lhat is not what Mr. Gurney wants. The studies he  ordered did not even consider  oeprating an improved local disposal site in Pender Harbour,  only the more cosily alternative  of building a transfer station  and trucking loose garbage to  Sechell. The transfer station  would only operate during business hours three days a week  and wouldn't accept bulky  loads.  For this drastically reduced  service, taxpayers would pay  more, a lot more. The added  cost of building the station,  supervising it, and then moving  all that loose, smelly garbage  down Ihe twisty coast highway  and through the streets of  Sechelt would run into the hundreds of thousands of dollars,  many times the current operating budget for the Pender dump.  Apparently some soreheads  have already been raising  doubts about this latest expression of Mr. Gurney's garbage  dream but this lime he's not  going to be denied.  "I'm losing patience with  this issue," he fumed at the last  regional board meeting, brushing aside the alternate director  who was trying to speak for  Area A and declaring that this  time the Pender dump would be  closed "no matter how people in  Area A felt about it."  No doubt there will be those  who will continue insisting in  petitions and protests that they  have the democratic right to  determine how their tax dollars  are spent, not some dictatorially  minded director from a distant  constitutency who docs not  have to answer lo them on voting day.  That's where they're wrong,  it seems.  Correct, Mr. Gumey?

About 25 leens  showed up to the  opening Feb. 7 to  spend the evening  shooting pool, play  ing tiintendo, anil  even flashing back  to a  couple  of rounds  of  Twister Music and food supplied the other two essential  components ol a hang-out.  The idea for llu* centre stalled with the often-heard complaint from teens that there  really wasn't much to do in the  community, says Gooldrap, and  the realization hy parents thai a  lack of places lo go meant kids  soon cattle up with alternate  activities: "As a group, we had  been really concerned with the  number of drinking parties that  had been going on," she says.  A grant of $7,000 from the  provincial TRY drug and alcohol program provided the  money to turn ideas into action.  But the biggest problem was  finding a suitable location for  the centre. Initially, there was a  lot of support from the community, says Gooldrup. "But when  it came to locating beside one of  their stores or the house next  door, ihey were a little more reticent."  A generous gesture by the  owners of the Pender Harbour  Fish Store on Francis Peninsula,  who are letting the teens use  their upstairs room rent-free,  'Adults are  strictly in the  background'  has finally allowed Ihe centra? lo  gel off Ihe ground. The organizers have now applied for nonprofit society status and are  negotiating with the school  hoard to lease land al the site of  the old alternate school in Pender Harbour in order to make  more permanent arrangements  So far, it's been mainly a  grade 7 to 10 crowd  at the centre, says  Gooldrup, as grade  11 and 12 students  usually have their   driver's   licence  "and hy Ihe time  they get to that age they've  already set the pattern of what  they're going lo do." Gooldrup  hopes, though, that as the current teens who use the centre  get older, they'll continue to  drop by.  Adults are strictly in Ihe  background, she says, and ihe  "rules" which operate are minimal: lite centre is alcohol and  drug free (which means leens  who choose to "go outside" for  a while aren't allowed hack in  that evening), and there's no  smoking - mainly because the  owner of Ihe property has valuable equipment and several  commercial fishboals at a nearby dock, which can't be jeopardized by the risk of accidents.  All the fixings in the centre -  from the collection of couches  to the stereo and posters on Ihe  wall - were donated by the community. A pool table was  offered by the Garden Bay volunteer fire department. And a  fridge and stove were bought  from a man in Sechelt for $100.  The centre is open every Friday and Saturday night from 7  pm to 11 pm.  Math camp offers  benefits to students  willing to learn  Students from Elphinstone secondary recently had a chance to gel  away from the classroom and apply their math to some real-life situations during a weekend "math camp" at Camp Byng, put on lo provide some intensive "training" for Ihe recent provincial exams.  First started by Elphinstone math teacher Joe Brooks two years  ago, the "math camp" is a weekend which combines some outdoor  hikes and field trips wilh math, math, and more math for eager high  school students. During the weekend, students make up problems,  write a "mock" exam and get extra help in areas of difficulty.  The camp is voluntary, and according to students who attended, it  made a big difference when it came lo writing the actual provincial  final. "We had some guidance to start our study program," said one  sludent.  Also, il was conducive to learning, said another sludent who was  at the math camp. "We were people who wanted to be there."

But, she also understands the  Importance ol conditioning her  mind.  "I don't believe in limiting  myself," says the 28-year-old  CriKiks, a 1984 Olympic silver  medalist. "I could break my leg  tomorrow and then where  would I he.' It's so important to  keep your options open."  That's the message Crooks  will take to junior and senior  high school students across  B.C. in the coming months.  Crooks and several other  Olympic athletes have teamed  up with the Canadian Manufacturers' Association to form a  Speakers' Bureau designed to  encourage B.C.'s young people  to get their high school diploma.  With a national dropout rate  ol JO per cent, Blair Wilson,  Vice President of CMA'sB.G  Division, says the country's  economic future isn't looking  very bright.  "Why do von think it's important in stay in school,'" According  to high school sttutV'iiLs around  B.C. and the Yukon:  "It's a competitive society  and most people with diplomas  get higher paying jobs. Let's  , face it, money is important  and on everyone's mind."  Danielle Strother, Kamloops  ���/ tin Snnitn  "Canada needs a strong work  force to remain competitive In  today's economy," says Wilson.  "We want to show B.C. students that it's important to  luik beyond the present. All ol  the athletes we're working with  have the foresight to realize  that their competitive days  won't last forever."  Simon Hoogewert, the  Canadian record holder in the  800 metres, is a perfect example. In addition to competing  internationally, he is studying  prc-medicine at the University  ot British Columbia,  "Pursuingan education will  help ensure I have the edge to  succeed when m\ competitive  days are over," says Hoogewert.  Along with Crooks and  Hoogewerf, athletes from a  variety of sports including  wrestling, skiing, cycling and  soccer will relay their own  personal experiences to students, while stressing the  importance of a good education.  The CMA Speakers' Bureau  is supported by Employment  and Immigration Canada on  behalf of the Minister of State-  tor Youth and is part ot the  federal government's five year  Stay-in-School initiative.

Approval from the Inspector  of Municipalities is still  required for the loan authorization bylaw, needed to borrow  $305,000 for the proposed  $430,000 pool upgrade.  The remainder would be  financed by grants and reserves.  Gibsons and Electoral Areas D,  E and F will vole in the referendum, approved by town council  and the SCRD last month.  The upgrade would overhaul  the pool heating and ventilation  systems, completely renovate  and expand the changing rooms,  and add 2,400 sq. ft. for new  office space and whirlpools.  The plans are available for public viewing at Gibsons town  hall.  The aquatic commission is  also considering mailing out an  information leaflet to explain  the need for the upgrade. The  commission has said the pool,  built on a limited budget in  1979, would likely be forced to  close within a few years unless  the renovation is undertaken.

Open for all  ages.  halfmoon bay happenings  by Ruth Forrester, 885-2418  There was an excellent  turnout for last Monday's meeting of ihe Halfmoon Bay branch  of St. Mary's Hospital Auxiliary:  It was a most interesting  meeting, with two guest speakers in attendance. Head nurse  Wendy Hunt spoke on behalf of  the hospital staff in response to  a letter which had been sent to  the Honourable ELizabeth Cull,  Minister of Health.  Hospital cuts  While doing volunteer work  at the hospital, the writer was  aware of a patient in bed in the  public hallway, and wondered  why this should be, when, as  asked in the letter, "There were  Fri. & Sat.

The  writer continued, "Why is it not  feasible to give this patient  access to privacy and dignity,  even on a temporary basis.  What saving could be accomplished by having him lying in a  public hallway?"  No response  To date there has been no  response from the minister, but  head nurse Wendy Hunt did her  best to respond on behalf of the  hospital, explaining thai it all  had to do with cutbacks in funding. Room closures and staff  reduction are the price which  had to be paid.  She also explained that many  of the acute care beds had to be  occupied by patients for whom  there should be alternative long-  term care arrangements, and  this matter is under review at  present.  In a recent operational  review, the team stated that  "They are doing the best they  can without sufficient funds."  Dial-a-Gran  Guest speaker Betty Scott of  Pender Harbour spoke of a new  service proposed for the Sunshine Coast called Dial-a-Gran,  which is a telephone support  system for new parents.  "When a new mother's parents are not near, she needs  someone to talk with who has  been there."

Until next week - be good to  yourself.  by Lynn Mean, 883-1188  Well, folks, there's good  news and sad news Sad news  first.  A service was held at the  Community hall on Sunday,  Feb. 9 lor Dolly Wallace (for  some Aunty Dolly), a long-time  resident of Egmont. There was a  large gathering of friends and  family and a few folks felt  moved to say a few words in  her memory. Dolly will be  missed at all the community  gatherings.  No chemicals  On a lighter note, some good  news For all Egmonsters and  Doristonites, you will be  pleased to know that I spoke  with John Clarke of Terminal  Foresl Products, and he assured  me that there will be no chemicals used on any of the cut-  blocks in the Doriston and  Egmont area. 1 would like to  thank John Clarke for coming  up last summer and taking us  seriously when we spoke about  our fears of chemical use in the  forest.  Fortunately, there is an alternative in this case, a company  called Whiskey Jack of Sechelt.  Changes are possible if the  motivation is true and pure.  Cougars  Seems to be a lot of cougars  on the prowl lately. There was a  sighting a while ago near  Waugh Lake of a female with  two cubs. Also at North Lake  the Marshalls had their 15-year-  old family cat taken by a  cougar. I guess as people slowly  encroach on the cougars' territory there will be more and  more confrontations.  Birthdays  Since 1 haven't got the list  from anyone yet, and I'm way  too young to know it all by  heart, Happy Birthday to all  February B-days. A quotation to  begin your week: "Whatever  you can do or dream you can  do, begin it. Boldness has  genius, power and magic in it.  Begin it now" (Goethe)  Increasing demand  stretches volunteer  drivers program  In the last six months, the volunteer drivers program has averaged  34 trips a month. These are only medical trips, says program co-ordi-  nator Nancy Baker. "We are constantly getting iquiries from people  needing transportation for other important appointments locally and  in Vancouver."  The service started as a supplement to the minibus and in 1987  averaged 7.8 trips a month. Volunteer drivers are registered at the  volunteer centre and donate their time to clients needing assistance  and transportation to various medical appointments.  The drivers' expenses are reimbursed including a minimum kilometre charge of 26 cents, which covers gas and general operating  expenses of an automobile.  The coordinator at the volunteer centre registers new clients and  matches them with an appropriate driver. There are very few trips the  centre hasn't been able to fill. Drivers, sometimes called on very  short notice, are extremely caring and attentive to the clients.  With the cutbacks in transportation and increases in population we  expect more demand on this service and it is becoming increasingly  difficult to oeprate it out of the volunteer centre without proper funding for the staff hours it takes.  To continue to run this service is absorbing staff hours that are  funded lo run the volunteer centre. The need is increasing and hopefully this service will be acknowledged in the near future.

Phone 926-4654  Fax 9264659  Ken Mitchell  shines in one-  man show  if Main���  Ken Mitchell, playwright, poet, novelist, screenwriter, director,  teacher and now actor, is a bona Tide Renaissance Man.  This label has been applied, often undeservedly, to many artists  over Ihe years, bul Ken Mitchell truly qualifies. In addition lo his  other talents, he also speaks fluent Chinese and Greek.  I first met Mitchell at ihe Writer's Festival in Sechelt several seasons ago. 1 was pleased to find him a modest, self-effacing guy with  no evidence of a rampaging ego. He gave a sparkling performance of  his poetry and prose, moving easily from humour to pathos. The  reading included three segments from his one-man play about Norman Bethune, Gone The Burning Sun. ll whelted ihe appetite for  more.  'Mitchell will don and doff as the play  progresses'  I didn't see Ken Mitchell again for several years. During this lime  1 was pleased and Haltered to be able lo edit Witches and Idiots, a  collection of his poetry, for Harbour. About a week ago, I was surprised and delighted to learn thai he would be coming to Gibsons  Feb. 6, to present a full-length version of Gone The Burning Sun.  Happily, I was able to attend this remarkable play.  The play is staged with a minimum of props - a table, a couple of  chairs and a skeletal backdrop of simulated bamboo, representing a  Chinese house. On this backdrop hang various coats and other items  of clothing that Mitchell will don and doff as the performance progresses.  The play is essentially a series of chronological monologues,  sometimes directed at the audience; sometimes to an invisible second  party on the stage. Appropriate music helps to set the various scenes.  The play opens on a darkened stage. The lights come up to find  Mitchell/Bethune stretched out on the table. We learn from the ensuing talk that he has just had a serious lung operation. Bethune's contradictory character is immediately revealed. He lights a forbidden  cigarette, coughs and sends an unseen companion for whisky. This  stubborn, self-destructive aspect of the man is clearly evident  throughout the play.  '...a man of many parts'  As things progress, we learn lhat Bethune has a very rocky relationship with his wife, Frances. At one point, he follows her to New  York, corners her lover at gun-point, beats him up and eventually gets  drunk with him. Mitchell manages to create this imaginary confrontation very convincingly.  But Bethune is a man of many parts, both bad and good. As the  play goes on, we see the humanitarian emerge, lite dedicated surgeon  who opens an art school for impoverished children and later, risks life  and limb in the Spanish Civil War and in China during the Japanese  invasion. Norman Bethune was a walking contradiction and Mitchell  makes this dichotomy abundantly clear as one strong scene moves  into another.  The play ends with Mitchell/Bethune lying on the same table. But  this time he is in China in a primitive hut, dying of blood poisoning  contracted from the war victims he has been treating. As he dies, he  hallucinates a trip to the Hebrides he took with his wife many years  before.  There are many other fascinating aspects lo this very moving piece  of theatre. Suffice to say that Ken Mitchell has pulled off a tour de  force, both as writer and actor. Gone The Burning Sun should be  showcased in a television format where it could reach the wide audience it so richly deserves. Thanks, Ken, for a memorable evening.

Bul so far, a committee set up to review the suitability of the  hook has rejected the charges and recommended lhat it stay in  school libraries.  "It does have a point of view," said David Short, elementary  school principal at Davis Bay and the member of the reviewing  committee which presented the recommendation to the board. "But  so do all the books in the library."  The committee rejected statement! that the book "indoctrinated"  children into an ami logging or extremist viewpoint. And while it  had "tremendous sympathy lor any industry where jobs are threatened by change," said Short, the conimitlee did not find anything  in the book that children shouldn't see or hear about.  "The job of education is to present a number of different views  and lo teach them lo weigh what are opinions and what are facts  and lo see different sides of an issue." said Short.  Keith Hrind, school librarian at (iibsous elementary and review  committee member, said school libraries do contain books presenting other points of view in forestry, including a kit put out by the  Canadian Pulp and Paper Associalion aimed at the primary level.  Although no rigid district guidelines have existed about including hooks in school libraries, various policies of the teacher-librarian's association are consulted by librarians in their decision. In it's  recommendation, the committee said only books which promote  abuse, bigotry, haired of others, or contain pornographic material  should not be placed in an elementary school.  Despite the recommendation. Cantelon said he would continue  to light the inclusion of the book in school libraries.

It's even  happened lo the Bible.  Over the years, any number  of books have been removed  from school libraries in different countries, for reasons Hinging from political and religious  viewpoints to profanity or sexually-explicit material.  On the Coast, such issues are  usually dealt with between parents and teachers or librarians.  "Ocassionally it pops up," says  Keith Brind, librarian at Gibsons elementary, "This kind of  thing can happen at the school  level and it happens vers- quiet-  ly."  It's only when the issues  raised touch a nerve in the community, such as the recent case  of Maxine's Tree - a book with  an environmental point of view  on forestry - that the district and  the public hears about them.  And those issues have  changed noticeably over Ihe  years.

SPEWUZED.  says Brind. "This kind of book,  Maxine's Tree, would not have  been written 10 years ago."  Early requests to remove  hooks were usually politically  motivated, says Mary Louise  Guest, librarian at Chatelech  secondary. In fact, her first  experience of this kind of  screening in the school system  was when a principal removed  Das Capital by Karl Marx from  a library. Then during the  1970s, the complaints changed  lo concerns over sexually  explicit material. Now, she  says, the pendulum seems to be  swinging back to political concerns, but this time it's environ-  mentalism, feminism and the  "liberal humanist viewpoint  that's being questioned".  Books which she's seen  removed from libraries range  from Judy Blume titles to Mein  Kampf by Adolf Hitler. Other  books may be taken out of circulation because of issues like  negative racial stereotyping and  sexism. Books which promote  abuse, hatred, or contain  pornography are also deliberately excluded.  In addition, books are  always being selectively "weeded oul" for relevance to both  today's values and the current  curriculum, says Guest.  And then there's the issue of  literary worth. "There has to be  a reason to select a book," she  says, "I don't have books that a  kid can get down in the grocery  store if they really want lo read  them."  Over the years, those books  which some people wanled to  read but weren't allowed lo  have in school libraries in various countries have included  Richard II by Shakespeare to  Huckleberry Finn by Mark  Twain. Metaphysics by  Descartes lo Darwin's Origin of  Species, works by Martin  Luther to Salman Rushdie's  Satanic Verses, Gulliver's Travels lo Ulysses.  Freedom to Read Week is  Feb. 24 to March 2 this year.  Meanwhile, trustees will be  making a final decision about  Maxine's Tree. "I've seen other  books removed," says Guest.  "But not in such a political context."  GOOD  CENTS��  MAKES GOOD 0ENTS  719 NORIH RD  GIBSONS  I'll: lllll)    71,110  FAX: lino - rr.jf.  HOURS Ol OI'IRUION:  9: ill - 9:0(1  ( lOSH)  eiitticMtd.

Not  only is il Ihe main form of exercise in the game, but it also performs a very important  function, since keeping the ice  clean and warm as curlers are  wont to say, can carry a rock  farther down the ice and to  some extent determine its direction.  Sweepers can use a variety  of brooms to perform the  sweeping task. In the early days  of the game, most Canadian  curlers used a corn broom  Although it is used less today,  the corn still has its place in the  game. Corn is often used in the  modern game to put chaff on  ihe ice to make straight ice  'swingier'.  The biggest problem with  corn is the chaff thai is lefl  since it changes Ihe ice surface  for both teams and some teams  do not like chaff on the ice. The  corn broom is also tiring since it  lakes a lol of effort to swing.  An early replacement for the  corn broom was the nylon covered broom. This broom is very  effective in carrying a rock that  extra distance since it really  heats up the ice in the hands of  an experienced sweeper.  This broom, however, is useful only if your sweepers have a  lot of stamina, since of all the  brooms, it probably is the most  tiring to use. Il is also notably  noisier than other brooms.  The broom of choice nowadays is the brush. It has many  advantages over other forms of  sweeping. For a beginning  curler it is very easy to learn lo  use and for an aging curler, it is  easier on the body since il takes  a lol less energy lo use.  If you are presently holding  the brush in the traditional  Canadian grip with your hands  close to ihe head of the brush,  and the handle crossing your  thigh, you might be interested to  know the present thinking by  the best players in our sport.  Currently the best method ol  using the brush is thought to be  lo hold ihe brush high on Ihe  handle pressing down with Ihe  top of the brush under the ami.  This form of holding was  adopted from the Europeans.  One advantage is considered to  be a better view of rock and ice  to allow superior estimation of  rock speed one of the functions ol the sweeper There is  also improved mechanical  advantage which transfers more  jiodj energy to the broom head.

Joel  Johnstone  photo  'Creek fire hall  collects GO grant  The Roberts Creek Volunteer Fire Departmenl has received  approval of a $70,000 GO BC award to help expand the fire hall.  "I'm happy that we got il and we certainly could use it," .said fire  chief Denis Mulligan, noting the sum will pay nearly half Ihe cost of  construction already underway. "We're hoping it will come out at  aboul $150,000 to $170,000," he said.  A 2,500 sq.ft. addition will provide service, storage areas and  training space for 27 volunteer fire fighters. It will also allow room lo  store the lire-fighting apparatus and vehicles under cover.  The Roberts Creek fire department serves about 8.10 homes in a  community experiencing rapid growth, "ll is essential that every  effort is made to ensure that emergency services are able lo meet  these growing demands," said minister responsible for (JO RC Lois  Hoiine in announcing the grant.  Wilh money hand, Mulligan estimated that construction could he  completed in two months  Central dispatch merits weighed  System seen as important first step toward 9-1-1 emergency service  ���y Stuart Bumslde  "The central dispatch system  is needed on the Coast,"  Roberts Creek Fire Chief Denis  Mulligan told the Coasl News  in a recent conversation. "The  system we have now just isn't  adequate."  "If (the private Sechelt company currently running Ihe dispatch service) were to decide  tomorrow that they weren't  making enough  money, or  whatever, they could pack il in  and there would be no dispatch  for the Coast.  Mulligan related an instance  some 15 years ago when a cab  company hired to dispatch messages for the fire departmenl  pulled up slakes and left without telling anyone.  Mulligan said the central dispatch system is seen as a step  toward 9-1-1 emergency service  because much of the equipment  Rooms  $105����  8862804  PENINSULA MOTOR INN  PER WEEK  Plus Tax  that will be purchased for central dispatch can be used for 9-  1-1. He noted that the existing  fire department dispatch equipment would still be used as part  of central dispatch.  Mulligan said it was possible  for the Coast lo go directly to 9*  1-1 but added that going to 9-1-  1 service at this time would  mean emergency calls from the  Coast would be sent to Vancouver first then rerouted back to  the appropriate fire station by a  person who probably wouldn't  be familiar wilh Coasl geography and duplicated street  names.  "Right now 9-1-1 would  probably work on the Coast,"  Mulligan said, "but without  central dispatch it wouldn't  work very well."  Under central dispatch the  various communities would  keep the same fire department  numbers they presently use.  /PRECISE PAINTING & PLASTERS  e All rinses of Drywall  e Complete Custom Painting  e Fire & Water Damage  e Journeyman Workmanship  Nr.lt  8860928 Free Eitimttn  /Z"  ComAou* 2>ed4GH ltd.  673 Payne Rd��� Glbsohs 886-3191    J  Beckett  Furniture Land  Highway 101, Dor 2549, Sechelt, B C VON 3A0  Telephone (004) 885-5766 ��� Fax (004) 885-2756  MISCELLANEOUS SERVICES  A VII' Store  ��� Salt W.iti'i Licences   A-ftr*'  ' Motel f,C.iiiilBlte* 'Wnlei laxi 4V.-f~-  1 M.iiini'Ki'li.nis        ' l.r.nul l.i'klr BBt-2 ���(,(��� J  STIHL  CHAINSAWS  & TRIMMERS  Kl'al      al.Y'S  Sales and Service  731 North Road, Gibsons ��� 886-2912  CAD Services   by NCG  Eu  weeaneer  Marina cc Resort Ltd  Localeo in Secret Cove 885-7888  MARINE SPECIALISTS 21 YEARS  PARTS - SALES ��� SERVICE -REPAIRS  K & C Thermoglass 4,^ "'j'Xi.U    ���av,  Cobra Boats now   m\9      ,.- V-jf��- j^i  In-Stock  l.'.NsMIJsV.

VON 1V0  jtall 8862622(Gibsons)  o8H930|Sechtlil  "Every number will stay the  way it is until we switch to 9-1-  1," Mulligan said, "We talked  about putting in one central  number but it seemed too difficult to try and teach everyone  on the Coast a single number  just to change it again when we  get 9-1-1."  The cost to the taxpayers for  central dispatch is around  $300,000 for equipment and  $250,000 a year for operating  expenses. The money will be  financed over 10 years and a lax  increase for the project could be  as high $35 a year per $100,000  of assessed property value. In  10 years, when the equipment is  paid off, the operating expense  is projected to drop to around  $14 per $100,000 of assessed  value.  That amount only applies if  the Coast stays with central dispatch, however, and would  increase when 9-1-1 is implemented.  Muligan was unsure what the  additional cost would be when  9-1-1 is implemented. He said  additional BC Tel equipment  would be necessary, but added  the telephone company would  probably pay a portion of the  extra cost.  Spokesman for BC Tel,  Norm Blaine, told the Coast  News, however, that any costs  incurred installing 9-1-1 would  be the responsibility of the district, not BC Tel. Blaine said he  didn't know how much il would  cost the regional district to  implement 9-1-1 after central  dispatch was instituted. He said  the costs could vary widely  depending on how elaborate the  regional district wanted to get.  "It's a bit like buying a car,"  he said, "There's a hell of a lot  lo choose from."  Mulligan acknowledged  there is a lack of understanding  by the public of the "counter  petition' approach favored by  the SCRD lo get central dispatch approved, but he defended the method by saying it is the  fastest and cheapest.  With the counter petition,  five per cent of the Coast's  14,150 eligible voters (about  700 people) must vote against  the project by signing one of the  four petitions available at the  municipal buildings of the  Coast's four governments. A  referendum would then be  required.  Mulligan said the regional  board needed to have a decision  before the end of March in  order to get the system into the  1992 budget.  He added, however, thai the  budget shouldn't detract from  the "real need" of gelling Ihe  system up and running.  "We've got all these fire  departments (on the Coast) and  all these people willing to help  in emergencies," Mulligan said.  "But if we can't get the phone  calls then it's all pretty useless."

THANKS TO-YOU ALL  Musket Island, a t.5 hectare  clump of rock and trees located  next to Fox and Hardy islands  in Jems Inlet, has been purchased as a provincial marine  park.  The new park is the first  cost-sharing acquisition by the  provincial government and the  BC Marine Parks Forever Society.  Long a haven for boaters  seeking safe, overnight anchorage, Musket Island has been on  the parks ministry's wish list for  some lime, said Garibaldi/Sunshine Coast zone manager Ian  Pepper "It has been used by  yachtsmen on this coast for  donkeys' years."  Pepper noted Ihe lack of  other marine parks in the area, a  busy junction for mariners  heading to and from Desolation  Sound or Jervis Inlet. "There's a  lot of traffic going by and a lot  of boaters staying overnight,"  he said. "With fuel costs rising  there's going to be more of a  tendency for these short cruises.  We need to be looking al more  places they can get into."  Pepper said shore access,  trails and wilderness camping  could be developed in the  future, if the island is suitable.

"It's noi  very big, bul it's a start," said  Dick Niven. "It's what you  might call a foot in the door."  Realizing the government  has limited funds for park  acquisition, the non-profit society was established five years  ago with the sponsorship of the  Council of BC Yacht Clubs.  Yacht club members and private individuals contribute  funds and suggestions of desirable land or islands for purchase. The society has taken  those and drawn up a shortlist  of Coastal properties it would  like lo acquire in (he future.  Niven said with more private  resorts selling up along (he  Coast, Ihe society is trying to  ensure there will still be anchorage for "ihe little guy," the  recreational boater cruising  around on short trips. Many of  BC's 38 marine parks are only  accessible by boat.  A parks ministry press  release notes the Coast's outstanding scenery, anchorages,  marine flora and fauna, cultural  features, opportunities for circle  tours and links to coastal communities make it a popular maritime destination.

Jane Seyd photo  by Stuart taniiUa  Over 150 people attended  MLA Gordon Wilson's firsl  ever town hall meeiing last  Wednesday to hear the Leader  of the Opposition speak on  issues dealing largely with  Coastal transportation.  One of the most emotional  issues discussed was ihe future  of the Gibsons bus, which has  recently become a non-profil  society in an attempt to raise  $15,000 and continue operating  in the face of competition from  BC Transit.  Langdale resident Tim Turner, representing the Gibsons  Bus Society (GBS), called on  Wilson to do everything possible lo ensure the continuation of  the service, asking him to imagine the consequences of allowing the operation to go under.  "This approaching summer,  without a Gibsons bus, we will  have a number of ferries lhat  will not be met by bus service,"  Turner pointed oul. "and we  will also have lost a major way  in which seniors and children  find mobility in this community."  Turner also noted that one of  Wilson's objectives as MLA is  to get more and faster ferry service on the Coast and asked  how it would be possible lo  transport the increased number  of travellers without Ihe Gibsons bus.  Wilson, after acknowledging  the "vital service" provided by  the Gibsons bus, said it was  necessary to pressure BC Transit into integrating GBS into the  Coast's transit system and  avoiding the duplication of  routes lhat now poses the main  problem.  He added that "good news"  could come from BC Transit  within the next week, but said it  would be necessary to work  with the SCRD and Ihe Town of  Gibsons to completely integrate  the Gibsons bus into the Coast's  transportation system.  Ferry service from Horseshoe Bay was also on the public's mind Hopkins Landing  resident Mary Fintiley asked  Wilson to do whatever he could  lo reduce lerry fares for children and the elderly and called  for free travel lor students on  field trips.  Wilson responded lhat he  had been an advocate of establishing a student fee for ferry  travel that would encompass all  students, from kindergarten  through elderly people taking a  college course, and vowed to  continue lobbying the ferry corporation.  In the same vein, Wilson  said it was "illogical" that lerry  fares should have just been  raised.  "I philosophically believe  the ferries are a natural extension of Ihe highways." Wilson  said. He said ihe six per cent  increase amounted to a tax on  Sunshine Coast residents and  said it wasn't justified.  "The ferry run from Horseshoe Bay to Langdale makes  money, it's running in the  black," he said He claimed the  ferry corporation viewed the  service   as   a   money   loser  because it was lumped together  with various ferry runs to and  from Powell River which do, in  fact, lose money.  37.

Low-rent housing  shortage growing  in Sechelt: council  There's not enough low-rental housing available in  Sechell for young people with families.  And Sechelt mayor Nancy MacLarty would like to  change thai.  Right now, the only low-rental housing in Sechelt is for  seniors, said MacLarty, and lhat isn't appropriate for young  families or single parents. MacLarty said she'd like to look  into funding for a project from BC Housing, which would  be administered by either the municipality or a non-profit  society. "We're certainly elligible for what they have to  give," she said, "because we have such a low vacancy rate  in Sechelt."  Currently, the lack of affordable housing is adding to a  problem of illegal suites in the district, which puts strains  on existing sewer and septic systems. Said Sechelt planner  Rob Sabine "It's been a tough issue for other municipalities lo deal wilh."  MacLarty said she would prefer low-rental housing  which blended with the residential community, rather than  being confined to one area. "I don't believe in it being  ghelto-ized," she said. "I believe in integrated housing."  Amnesty to screen film  The local chapter of Amnesty International is inviting  everyone to come out to the next meeting Feb. 19, 7:30 pm  at Sechelt elementary school, when a film on celebrated  human rights activist Raoul Wallenberg will be shown.  Wallenberg, a Swedish diplomat, helped save 100,000  Hungarian Jews from Ihe Nazis during World War II and  was made an honorary citizen of Ihe United Stales for his  efforts. He later disappeared into the Russian "gulags", or  prison camps, at the end of Ihe war.
