 LEGISLATIVE LIBRARY  Parliament Buildings  Victoria, B.C. V��V 1X4  *tt.<)  COAST^NEWS  50 cents per copy on newsstands  SHED    1945  December 21,1992 Volume 46 Issue 51  Coalition masses to protest food fisheries  by Jane Seyd  About 80 Sunshine Coast commercial fishermen turned out to an afternoon meeting this week in Sechelt to  voice concern aboul changes underway  in fisheries management - especially  Ihose allowing increased sale of native  food fish.  The meeiing organized by the Fishermen's Survival Coalition was one of  several taking place in coastal BC communities, where commercial fishermen  say they've been excluded from fisheries planning.  At the meeting Wednesday, fishermen said both their livelihoods and the  salmon resource are being threatened  by politically motivated decisions.  'Issue sensitive even within the native community'  "Our way of life and our livelihood  is certainly under change right now,"  said local coalition member Ron Malcolm "...we've had very little input into  what's happening to us."  Bob Rezansoff, a coalition organizer  from Vancouver, said fishermen are  worried after last summer's experimental native fisheries on the Fraser River.  "The commercial food fishery was  largely uncontrolled in most areas,"  said Rezansoff. And he added, "It isn't  just the Fraser...it's happening all over."  The fishermen's coalition wants the  government to stop commercial food  fisheries, said Rezansoff. and to return  effective control to the Department of  Fisheries and Oceans.  "You can't have control of that  resource fragmented." he said, and  called the idea of native bands enforcing regulations in their own fisheries  "complete nonsense: If we were put in  charge of fishing in any given area,  we'd take advantage of that too."  Most of all, said coalition members,  fishermen want politics taken oul of  fish management, particularly when it  involves using fishing agreements as  interim land claims settlements.  "There are right ways and wrong  ways of increasing native participation  in the fishery," said Phil Eby, executive  director of the Vessel Owners Association. "There's a political agenda oul  Ihere."  Calvin Craigan, chairman of the  Sechelt Indian Band's new fisheries  commission and member of the band's  I   Innovative reading  program primes  Sechelt students  land claims negotiating committee, also  spoke to fishermen at the meeiing  Sale of food fish is a sensitive issue  even within the native communily said  Craigan. with differences of opinion  between native commercial fishermen  and other band members  But most Sechell native fishermen  would rather have greater participation  by natives in the commercial fleet than  increased sale of lood fish.  Said Craigan: "We don't agree with  what's happening on the Fraser or the  Skeena."  "They've given the native bands an  inch and they've taken a mile...that's  only human," said Craigan.  turn to page 2  by Darah Hansen  The strongest indicator of a  student at risk of dropping out  of high school is difficulty with  reading.  Often that difficulty is identified early on at the primary  level and teachers do what they  can to help individual students  within a group atmosphere.  But that hasn't always been  enough as some students continue to slip through the cracks.  With that in mind, John Nicholson has implemented a Reading  Recovery program, now in its  first year at Sechelt  Elementary.  Former principal  at the school,  Nicholson said he  heard of the program  through contact with  colleges in New  Zealand where it  originated under the  studies of Dr. Marie  Clay in the 1970s and '80s.  Clay discovered, said  Nicholson, that students  respond best to intensive one-  on-one instruction with highly  trained teachers who are able to  provide each individual with the  "right" material. The individual  touch is important, said Nichol-  son."Every student is different."  The program is most effective in grade one. The students  needing the most help are identified in their classrooms  "before they have a chance to  fail," said Nicholson. "We  always want kids to succeed."  Once a day for IS weeks, the  students each meet for half an  hour with the specially trained  teacher. Here they read and  write text geared lo their individual needs, they are taught to  pick up visual cues in the material and learn how to attach  'Students  respond best  to intensive  one-on-one  instruction'  meaning to the words.  "It's one of the most effective reading strategies known,"  said Nicholson, citing a 90 per  cent success rate in New  Zealand, a country which boasts  the highest literacy rate in the  world.  Assisted by an $8,000 grant  from the federal Stay in School  funding and matching funds  from both the school district and  the Sechelt Indian Band,  Nicholson was able to get a tike  program up and running at  Sechelt.    As principal of  Gibsons Elementary  this year, Nicholson  would like to see the  program implemented there and, ideally,  in  every primary  school. But in the  short term it's very  expensive, he said,  "though in the long  run it's cheap because schools  won't have to invest in on-going  learning assistance."  At present eight grade one  students are in the program  under the direction of teachers  Joe Chell and Frank Thorburn.  Primary teacher Shirley Kuciuk  is also involved, using the techniques in her classroom.  All three teachers are  involved in continuous training  with a special Reading Recovery instructor in Port Angeles,  Wash.  As a parent and a school  board trustee, Lenora Joe  couldn't say enough good  things about Reading Recovery.  Her son has been in the program  since the beginning of the year  and she says the difference  she's noticed in his reading  skills and self-esteem is tremendous.  Exploring the good will of Christmas through a series of performances, Cedar Grove  Elementary students reach out to touch hands, hearts and minds with their message.  Joel Johnstone photo  Distressed boaters send search teams on goose chase  by Darah Hansen  Sechelt's RCMP marine unit  and the national Coast Guard  spent the early hours on Thursday morning searching the  waters off Flume Road for a  missing person thought to be  adrift in a small, open runabout  More than 30 officers,  including the search and rescue  helicopter crew from Comox air  force base, were called in to par-  Mounties recover stolen boat off Flume Beach  ticipate in the search, which  began when local RCMP  received a report at approximately 5 am of a boat in distress  near Roberts Creek.  Arriving first in the Sechelt  RCMP boat Stikine, officers  discovered a 33-year-old man  and a 31-year-old woman calling for help. Their boat, a 20-  foot aluminum log-salvager, had  run up on the rocks.  A search ensued when the  two people told police a third  member of their party had  departed in a smaller skiff alone.  After approximately three  hours, police determined the  story of the third person was fictional and the search was called  off.  "It was a cover up," said  Sechelt RCMP Constable Randy  Fisk. "The two people were try  ing to say this unknown third  person stole the boat."  The boat, later reported  stolen from Gibsons harbour,  was towed back to its owner,  sustaining some damage while  the two suspects, both unharmed  in the accident, were taken into  custody and later released.  Pending an investigation,  charges of possession of stolen  property are anticipated.  Joint development offer revives Rockwood  hopes for building Lot H arts centre expansion  A tentative deal has been struck between  the Rockwood Lodge Society and a local  investor for a joint development on Lot H,  but subject to legal approval the society  board is remaining tight-lipped about the  proposal.  Facing a Jan. 8 deadline to exercise an  option to purchase the 5.9 acre parcel adjacent to Rockwood to build a Centre of  Excellence for the Arts, the society recently  went to the development community when it  found it was unable on its own to raise the  $440,000 needed to buy Lot H. The society's  predicament was compounded by Rock-  wood's having invested $18,000 since July  to keep the purchase option alive.  Two developers had previously expressed  interest in some sort of joint venture for the  site, but Rockwood did not pursue the idea at  the time as it was originally hoping to raise  the money in the community and with local  government assistance. Those plans failed to  materialiseJ.  Meanwhile, a $500,000 federal grant has  been approved by Community Futures  toward construction costs of the proposed  arts centre if the land can be secured.  The board met Wednesday to review a  joint development offer and has agreed to  proceed. However, no information was  released and the society has decided to keep  a lid on what the proposal involves until the  details and legalities have been ironed out.  Regional  district  tax hike  possible  by Jane Seyd  Merry Christmas to rural  property owners of the Sunshine Coast from directors of  the regional district: your taxes  could be rising.  That's if the board's provisional budget - not finalized  until the spring - goes according to plan.  How much more is an average owner likely to fork over?  Maybe a lot. maybe nothing.  Regional directors say they  don't know, because they  haven't yet received property  assessment figures from the BC  Assessment Authority, which  covers both increased values on  existing homes and new construction.  Unofficial word has it that  overall assessments on the  Coast are up substantially, by  between 30 and 40 per cent,  says regional administrator  Larry Jardine.  One way or another, though,  the board plans on getting  about $1 million more in taxes  for the 1993 budget than they  had in 1992, for a grand total of  $4,926,655 revenue from taxation compared to last year's  $3,863,087. Thai's double the  tax revenue of $2,317,897 spent  by the regional district only  four years ago.  Finance chairman Brett  McGillivray calls that "a considerable increase," but says it's  a sign of the times and the  result of increased demand for  services.  These include a change from  a half-time to a full-time coordinator's position for the  Provincial Emergency Program, hiring of additional  inspectors for planning,  increases to public transit and  more employment to take care  of the regional district's parks.  The largest area of increase,  however, is under the category  of "environmental health"  where spending is estimated at  $965,765 - up from spending  last year of $583,285. About  $120,000 of the amount lo be  spent is money carried over  from this year's budget to deal  with the as-yet unresolved issue  of the Pender Harbour landfill.  Another substantial expense  will be the hiring of a co-ordinator to come up with a solid  waste management plan this  year, as required by the provincial government.  Another controversial  change included in the budget  is the formal splitting of the  existing planning function into  "electoral area planning," in  which only the rural areas will  participate, and "development  services." which will include  the municipalities.  Gibsons mayor Eric Small  said he wasn't happy about that  and advised directors not to  "count on collecting money  from the municipalities."  �� Coast News, December 21,  1992  AS*  VARI  Ka\PPUS and BELLMIRA  #X'-      _*-m*_\ Soaps &  ^\>_r���'       BubbIe g^  * I Buy 2 or more  i  GET 10% OFF  FOODS  from GLlite travel  4 fiimi OffitsVg QSkOtdp,  V*m     CWitty, ^ynwn-<S. iVail  zmwzim  TOURS a TtCKCTS ��� CHARTERS ��� INSURANCE  886-2522    886-3381  BESIDE OIBSONS MEDICAL CENTRE  HAPPY  HOLIDAYS  from the staff of The Coast News  /Announcement  Dr. Patrick McRoberts is pleased to  announce the opening of an  Optometry clinic to serve the  residents of the Sunshine Coast  The clinic is located in the  Wilson Creek Plaza  204-4336 Sunshine Coast Highway.

Fishermen  also need to look al wider problems like fishing agreements  with Ihe US, offshore Ashing  and growing pollution of coastal  waters, he commented.  The key is for local fishermen to work together, said  Craigan, "or by the lime we settle Ihis issue there'll be no more  lish."  Bill Moore, regional economic development officer, also  handed oul surveys to fishermen  at lhe meeiing, in order lo pul  together a report on bolh Ihe  cultural and economic role of  commercial fishing on Ihe  Coasl.  According lo rough membership surveys, about 280 people  on Ihe Sunshine Coasl have  direct lies lo the commercial  fishing industry.  Following the meeting, Rex  Davy, a commercial fishermen  for Ihe pasl 18 years, said it's  important for fishermen lo get  the word out now about what's  happening in the industry.  "People in BC slill don't  understand the full ramifications  of a commercialized food fishery," he commented.  Meanwhile Craigan blamed  government blunders for growing hostility towards native fishing. "They not only mismanaged our resource, but they've  turned the commercial fishery  against the native food fishery.''  Coast fishermen at  a gathering in  Sechell voice fears  their way of life  and livelihood is at  risk because of  changes in fisheries  management.  Jane Seyd photo  Pearse report documents fishing abuses  by Jane Seyd  Lasl summer, at the height of the fishing  season and new co-management agreements  with native bands on the lower Fraser River,  almost half a million sockeye salmon "disappeared" on Iheir way to the spawning  grounds, sparking angry debate in the fishing  communily.  This month, a report commissioned' by  Ihe Department of Fisheries and Oceans confirms what many fishermen say Ihey already  knew: salmon were over-fished both iir and  out of the new agreement areas, wilh much  of the catch sold illegally.  And Ihe scene on the banks of Ihe Fraser  last summer described in the report by Peter  Pearse is not a pretty picture.  According to the report, nets in Ihe lower  Fraser River doubled during peak fishing  times from 434 in 1991 to 883 in the summer of 1992, while intensive fishing was  also reported upstream from the agreement  areas.  Reports included upstream fish being  trucked down to sale sites on Ihe lower Fraser, says Pearse, while formerly rare illegal  practices like drift gillnet fishing were  observed. Of the salmon which actually did  make it to the spawning grounds upriver, a  disproportionate percentage were females,  and up lo 60 per cent of some returning  stocks showed net markings.  'It cannot be repeated  without seriously threatening  tbe salmon resources'  ���Pearse re/Hiii excerpt  While what happened lasl summer does  noi mean a disaster to the sockeye, Pearse  says: "It cannot be repeated without seriously threatening Ihe salmon resources."  Originally, Ihe one-year trial agreements  with Ihree Indian bands on the lower Fraser  were meant both lo give native people a  greater participation in fisheries management and to begin regulating the existing  illegal sale of food fish.  The program also followed recommendations by a government land claims task force  to allow native bands "interim" agreements  on fisheries management, pending settlement  of overall land claims.  But according lo Pearse, problems soon  developed.  Among them: fishing began wilh no proper management plan or training of  "guardians" who were supposed lo administer Ihe new agreements and local fisheries  officers were forbidden lo lay charges on the  Fraser. In Ihe resulting chaos, protest fisheries were staged by bands on Ihe upper  Fraser and fishing by outsiders also grew, as  word soon spread that both enforcement and  monitoring of catches had been abandoned.  In future, says Pearse, agreements on Ihe  Fraser should be made collectively with  native bands rather than individually, for  belter co-ordinalion and management of Ihe  fishery.  So far, chiefs of 97 Fraser River bands  have been invited lo start negotiating a collective agreement for 1993 in January, to be  made final in Ihe spring. Training will also  begin in January for native "guardians" who  help administer Ihe fishery.  Gibsons council hedges on new library site  Approval for a new Gibsons public  library to be built in Holland Park, subject to  a feasibility study being completed, ran into  another hurdle last week.  Gibsons council decided to table the matter pending clarification of the library  board's intent. Mayor Eric Small and Cllr.  Walter Bradshaw said they were under the  impression a site-specific study would be  carried out for the south-cast comer of Holland Park, opposite the post office. Bul Cllr.  Ted Hume said he understood that the feasibility study would examine Ihe whole park  in order lo determine the best localion.  Cllr. Ed Sleeves, who was absent from  the library meeting when the arrangements  were made and Ihe subsequent committee  session al which Ihe deal was recommended  for approval, expressed reservations aboul  the whole process.  The library has been seeking site  approval for more than a year, but has been  delayed while council has wrestled with a  new official community plan and its vision  for future Holland Park use and Ihe communily desire lo see green space mainlained in  lower Gibsons.

Jardine said the regional board had not  formally agreed to Ihe idea of going to referendum over ice arena funding but had verbally accepted the possibility when the matter was raised by Sechell mayor Nancy  MacLarty al a recent board meeting.  Jardine said thai, following a referendum,  Sechell would retain control of the arena  while SRCD funding would help with ils  operation.  'If something doesn't happen  we'll either have to go to a  two-tier system, or consider  closing the arena'  ���Mayor Nancy Macl/irty  Mean while, Sechelt council is doing its  part to make the referendum a reality. At  Wednesday's meeiing, councillors agreed to  send a letter to the SCRD officially requesting that Ihe referendum be held as early as  possible.  In bringing the subject up, MacLarty  noted lhat a large number of the arena's users  come from outside the municipality and are  essentially subsidized by the taxpayers of  Sechelt to use the facility.  "If something doesn't happen we'll either  have to go to a two-tier system, or consider  closing (the arena)," she said.  Under a two-lier system, Ihere would be  two sets of ice rental fees, those for Sechell  residents, and a higher fee for those living  outside the municipality.  "We don't want to have to do that,"  MacLarty said, "but that's the way we're  heading."  The arena, which users claim has one of  the highest ice rental costs in Ihe province,  runs an annual deficit of around $150,000.  Community groups get philanthropic boost  Sunshine Coast communily groups are benefitting from Ihe generosity of lhe Vancouver Poundalion.  The Sunshine Coast community Services Society (SCCSS) has  received a $40,000 pledge from the foundation toward the purchase  of the society's building on Inlet Avenu, according to Vicki Dobbyn,  SCCSS execulive director. SCCSS currently rents the space from the  regional district.  SCCSS is an umbrella organisation for family and children's ser-  vteetfv'itlcludirtg the parent/lot drop in centre, providing special ser  vices to children, children's physiotherapy and occupational therapy.  The society also sponsors the Coast's Transition House, a children's  sexual abuse treatment program and a new women's counselling program to begin in January.  Dobbyn said she was "delighted" with the grant.  The Gibsons Teen outreach centre also received a grant for  $5,000, which co-ordinator Emily Barber-Gareau said would be used  to stock a library for the facility as well as purchase a sound system.

In announcing plans for the  demonstration, local IWA representative Murray Cantelon  issued a three-page attack on the  forest ministry decision, which  he described as an ill-measured  response lo "the pressure of  extreme environmenlal groups  and self-serving special inleresl  groups."  The IWA predicts lhat some  120 direct forestry jobs will be  lost as a result of the cut, with  an additional 240 retail and service jobs threatened. The financial impact will extend lo loss of  stumpage revenues, an increase  in UIC and social assistance  payments, increased bankruptcies and more social services  demands, Cantelon added.  According to the IWA, the  nel result will be a $30 million  economic loss on Ihe Coast,  affecting every communily from  Port Mellon to Egmont.  The union has argued that the  cut is not based on sustainability  figure, and is too drastic lo  impose all at once; a phased  reduction would allow for  retraining, research and development and compensation for  displaced workers, their families  and communities.  "Extreme environmentalists  do not care about the social or  economic impacts," said Cantelon. "Many are prepared to  worship trees and sacrifice families."  The demonstration, which  took place after the Coast News  deadline, was scheduled for 1  pm and expected to lasl 90 minutes.  Have a peaceful and prosperous New Year.

At stake is use of Holland Park, a critical piece of  green space in lower Gibsons that is not technically a  park, but public institutional land. There is no intention to  chiinge that designation in the new community plan currently being refined at town hall.  At Ihe same time, there is a clear desire lo see green  space preserved, especially with the town facing unprecedented growth pressures.  In the face of this planning pas-de-deux. the library  board has been playing wallflower, feeling the crush  while looking oo from the sidelines. There simply isn't  enough room at the existing library.  The prevailing political mood at town hall recognizes  that the library has been operating from a site on Holland  Park and that it is an appropriate location for a larger  building that would accommodate community needs into  the future.  Converting that will into a firm commitment at town,  however, h.is eluded the library board all year. And now,  having at least wrung a qualified okay from council to  proceed with planning for Holland Park and undertake a  sile feasibility study, the dreaded rumblings of doubt are  resurfacing.  The debate has been lingering on too long already;  frustrations mount while library service diminishes.  Close the book on the issue for the good of all.  Breaking doors,  robbing mouths  Acts of vandalism are usually senseless, destructive  impulses delivered indiscriminately and without malice.  Yet it is impossible to believe that even the most mindless hooligans are unaware what property they have set  about to destroy or what damage is being inflicted in pursuit of cheap thrills.  So it's safe to assume that whoever broke into the  Sechelt food bank last week, the third time this year the  MMMg-tiM been raided, knew what they were doing as  they opened boxes and cans of food and splashed their  contents about the place.  Usually the damage - stupid, upsetting and costly  though it is - extends no further than the property itself,  be it public or private. It is the unseen cost that is truly  , disturbing about the food bank rampage.  Relying, as it does, exclusively on donations, and serving an ever-widening net of families and individuals, the  food bank loss has a direct impact on the lives of people  struggling to feed the most basic human need: hunger.  The perpetrators of the food bank break-in deserve the  condemnation being heaped upon them, even while they  lie beyond the law's reach. There's been an unhealthy run  of break-ins in Sechelt of late.  Plaudits to Mayor Nancy MacLarty and a council  member who preferred to remain nameless for putting up  their own money as a reward for conviction. A stint of  community work at the food bank would be appropriate  retribution for the culprits and a critical learning experience so obviously now lacking.  letters  Council lax  on key issues  At a recent meeiing of Gibsons town council I slated: "I  think the character of this (own  is changing and not necessarily  for the belter." 1 used the recent  clear-cutting of a three acre parcel of land right in the centre of  the township as one example.  The owner responsible for ihis  degradation of an important pan  of our communily was not  bound by any regulations to  consider alternative means of  dealing with a perfectly beautiful little forest.  A totally unacceptable mess  was left behind: stumps,  plowed-up soil and mud puddles, again without any attempt  by our municipal governmenl lo  hold Ihe owner to some rudimentary form of clean up or  visual upgrading. The Municipal Act gives local governments  extensive powers to deal wilh  the protection and integrity of  local assets, such as old and  valuable trees. Why are such  powers not enforced?  This is not the only issue of  serious concern. I find Ihe level  of building development, both  in terms of scope and quality,  unacceptable. The part of Highway 101 running through upper  Gibsons is an aesthetic nightmare. Strip development without additional lanes, traffic regulators and proper setbacks  make it often impossible to get  in and out of mails and parking  lots.  The visual appearance of the  business districl would have  benefitted from Ihe retention of  clusters of irees. Does Ihe town  have a design panel thai could  make convincing recommendations lo keep this place aesthetically pleasing?  Another item is general  mainlenance. The road system is  crumbling under the impact of  too much (raffle and too little  mainlenance like curbing, storm  sewer installation and patching  of defective road surfaces.  There is no money and no tax  base, we are laid. Bul couldn't a  creative and innovative council  come up wilh schemes of raising exlra money (Needful  Things, perhaps) or gelling the  citizenry involved in helping  with garbage control, maintenance of ditches and planting of  flowers?  Safely: whal can be done to  make Gibsons a safe place for  pedestrians? For two years I  have been trying lo coax council  inio putting in sidewalks along  Crucil and Hillcresl and filling  in a dangerous sewer hole right  in front of housing where children live. The response again:  there is no money, besides il is  the responsibility of the department of highways. Is this lo  mean lhat after Iwo years council still hasn't established a cooperative relationship wilh highways to gel roads fixed.  PETER PAUL OCHS  Gibsons  Pender dump  condition angers  An open letter to Jane  Reid, director Area A  I visited our dump site this  morning as I do every three  weeks wilh my minuscule offering of waste, and was angered  by the slate I found our landfill  sile in. This is by the way how il  has been every lime I have  made a trip ihere in the past two  and one-half years.  Cardboard, glass, tin cans  everywhere. An absolute wasle  of recyclable material. There  w.is the usual offering of lumber, drywall and other assorted  ex-building material and plastic  everywhere. In my humble esli-  letters welcome  We welcome letters to the editor on matters of public  interest. However, we reserve the right to edit  submissions for brevity, clarity and legality. Please mail  your letters to:  The Editor  Sunshine Coast News  Box 68  Sechelt, B.C.  V0N3A0  malion the condition of this  landfill site continues, as il has  since my arrival here, lo be very  questionable.  My concern is as follows:  ��� Though 1 have heard you  say lhat wasle management is  important to you and lhal you  have sel up a committee to  review the situation, your  actions seem less than congruent wilh your words;  ��� The landfill sile permit has  been extended for another six  months lo December of 1993  allowing the status quo io continue right through the height of  tourist season;  ��� You voted in favour of  sinking the Chaudiere, an action  lhal may have long-standing  environmental impact;  ��� Your committee lo review  wasle management comprises  the gentleman who transports  residential waste to Ihe site,,lhe  gentleman who has the contract  lo manage Ihe sile, a gentleman  who salvages the sile for personal profit, a woman journalist  and a woman representative  from lhe recycling group.  This is truly an important  issue lo all residents of Area A  and also lo our fragile, overburdened environment. I am not  sure what it is going to lake lo  solve ihis problem in a way lhat  works for us all and is in harmony with nature. We are continuing to do whal we have always  done - dump our mess into the  landfill site, consequences be  damned.  Status quo doesn't work for  me.  STEPHEN GARRETT  Garden Bay, BC  Economists endlessly seeking for solutions in vain?  I think that it was George Bernard Shaw who,  half a century ago, made the observation: "If all  the economists in the world were laid end to end  they still wouldn't reach a conclusion."  If there has been a sure fire growth industry  since then it has been in the field of economics.  OM G.B.S.'s wry observation if made today might  include the world's economists being laid end to  end and six deep in a globe-girdling line bul with a  similar inability to reach any kind of conclusion.  There was, for example, the fascinating and  even hopeful exercise undertaken last week by  President Elect Bill Clinton. To Little Rock,  Arkansas, the incoming presidenl of the Uniled  States summoned some of the best minds in America for round table discussions about the slate of  and the path for the world's only remaining superpower.  It was fascinating and it was hopeful because  here was an elected leader, having won office,  seeking a broad consensus from the captains of  industry, the leaders of trade unions, and those  concerned with the well being of people on what  his country can and should try to do for the welfare  of all.  We are more accustomed in North America, and  probably in that other cradle of Canada the United  Kingdom, to political leaders who get elected  claiming to know exactly what to do. We are more  musings  John burnside  accustomed lo the captains of industry, the trade  unions, and the caregivers being locked in automatic and patterned hostility.  This was an impressive undertaking and the  consensus of the political observers seemed to be  that both Clinton and Gore were impressive in  their management of it. Both the presidenl and lhe  vice-president elect, il seemed, impressed with the  breadth and depth of their information and their  understanding.  When in this country have we been permitted to  see the executive branch of government wrestling  publicly with crucial decisions? Our prime minister has just signed the North American Free Trade  Agreement with the United States and Mexico and,  to the best of my knowledge, not even the legislators in Ottawa have yet seen the text of the agreement  That is more typical of the decision-making  process than what happened in Little Rock last  week.  And speaking briefly of our prime minister,  was anyone else as incredulous as myself when he  proclaimed at a Conservative fundraiser in Edmonton that the incoming American president was  about to adopt the tactics of the Progressive Conservative party of Canada in the twin and conflicting problems of creating jobs and wrestling the  economic deficit under control.  Two questions present themselves. Why would  anybody seek to emulate the policies of a government which has seen the country's debt more than  triple and the numbers of jobless increase almosl a  decade after it got elected promising to solve both  problems.  Secondly, even if the conference in Little Rock  was a fascinating and admirable exercise, it still  didn't break the George Bernard Shaw rule. The  assembled intellects obviously relished the  exchange and the opportunity to be heard, but they  certainly did not come to any conclusion.  If Clinton, still not in command, does not know  what he's going to do how can Mulroney proclaim  that the Americans will follow the Canadian lead,  and God help us all if they do. Our remarkable  prime minister is showing us quite a trick here,  folks. He seeks to ride the coattails of the Ameri  can president on the way to economic solvency all  the while proclaiming that he, Mulroney, is really  wearing the coat.  Everyone in Canada will be affected by the  decisions thai Clinton eventually does reach and  we must all therefore wish him well.  A lot of decisions are going lo have to be carefully made and all of them are going to have to be  the right ones before the economic shambles that  we have managed to achieve becomes more order-  iy.  Meanwhile, mixed messages abound. Some  economists call for stimulation to create jobs and  taxpayers so we can begin lo reduce our deficits.  Conservative economists slill call for a fierce  retrenchment on virtually all social spending to  curb the deficits. These boys and their political  equivalents are the masters of steely eyed resolve  in the face of someone else's suffering.  In truth, the latter is the prevailing international  wisdom of the day. The World Bank and the International Monetary Fund have been insisting to the  Third World for a decade that starvation, disease  and misery have to be endured and the people sacrificed on the altar of fiscal prudence.  No one in Canada seems to have any solutions.  Unless Bill Clinton and his round table can find a  bener and a different answer soon, it may be that  North America's turn to suffer is at hand.

People who  play music to us on the radio,  for example, don'l seem lo have  ihis sort of a problem. The  music is traditional right? And  traditional is what it's all about?  So, more or less, you just  play il all back over again, and  everyone is totally happy, and in  fact might attack you if you did  anything else.  Somehow ihis does noi work  the same way with written stuff.  People, readers that is, expect il  lo be new and even different,  and unless you are Dickens or  Damon Runyon or Dr. Seuss or  Dylan Thomas or whoever, you  can'l expect to be just running  il by Yuletide to Yuletide.  And yet, I would say, Christmas presents an increasingly  thorny problem, more the spikes  on the holly than the berries. On  the radio today (Wednesday),  there was a phone-in program  questioning what people felt  was most stressful about the  season to be jolly, and more  people out there than could be  accommodated were piling in  with heart-rending examples  ranging from being pressured  into making more mince pies  than was natural to having to  clean up the house for visiting  relatives.  But nobody mentioned Ihe  writer's problem: whal to write  about Christmas in '92? There  are, of course, slill all those  quite marvellous memories -  moonlight on snow and young  carollers crunching aboul from  house lo house. Mornings when  you woke up earlier than ever  before, crawled to lhe end of  your bed, and found a small  flashlight in the mouth of your  stocking.  But, of course, all Ihis stuff  seems hopelessly of the pasl,  really.  The story lhal occurs lo me is  not chosen as any kind of commentary on the world today, ll  is true lhal Ihe people in ii are  all kind of cocked up. They are  in fact, by definition cocked up,  but Ihey are or have been, leaders in their various fields and  they come together, one Christmas, from widely scattered parts  of Canada.  They were all, men and  women, notable over-doers in  Ihe area sometimes referred lo  as 'Christmas cheer.' They were  year-round Chrislmas cheerers,  and they had collected on this  particular Chrislmas in Dr.  Bell's well known spot for the  care and advising of the variously addicted.  Two of Ihem, Newfoundlanders, one a professor and lhe  other a top hydrographies man,  had been long companions in  their chosen bars in St. John's.  They had taken care to give  each other plausible excuses for  where Ihey were going to be  over this period, and were  astonished to find themselves al  Dr. Bell's.  This kind of camouflage was  In a nutshell  HAPPY HOLIDAY!  Sincere good wishes for a joyous Noel to  our good friends and customers. May the  best of this Holiday Season be yours.  Grandma's  Toy Box  Sunnycrest Mall  886-3044  pretty well general. A lop currency dealer for lhe Bank of  Montreal was visiting his family  in Ireland, lhe matron of nurses  at a St. John's hospital was on  some sort of a sabbatical, etc. A  leading Toronto arlist, whom  some of the people recognized,  had lo be called by a different  name.  Still there ihey all were, for a  monlh, and Christmas was  going lo be in il, and Chrislmas  was a notably touchy time for  many of these people. Dr. Bell's  warmly humane and wise program, considered al lhal lime  Ihe best on the continent,  required thai a group would, in  ils second week, present a skit  on the stage to the rest of the  people, the staff and visitors. I  was there for one of ihese and  someway it has stayed in my  memory.  ll was, of course, aboul drink  and Christmas. An alarm bell  rang on a darkened stage and  when the lights came up Santa  Ciaus awakened lo his annual  duties.  He started wandering around  looking for something which  stuart nutter  most of ihe audience realized  was going lo be a bottle of  something, which he eventually  discovered in the bulge of his  stomach. Then he wenl about  rounding up his crew and offering them a toi.  The crew included Scrooge,  Molher tioose, Santa's helpers  and Rudolph the Red Nosed  Reindeer. All were clearly in  parlous slate.  Mother Goose, the matron of  nurses, had a basket with a dead  goose in it and when Scrooge,  lite international money dealer,  pulled it oul he said: "This  goose is slone."  And so il wenl.  Al lhe end, they have all  been converted and have gone  on antabuse. Antabuse is a drug  which, if you lake it and lake a  drink, a sip even, will cause you  to fall down and turn blue.  Hardly, you would think, the  stuff for Chrislmas merriment.  It was this, I guess, which  keeps the skit in my mind. Here  were these people with almost  no reason to celebrate the holiday slill making it a happy  Christinas.

My first comment is to slate  that I was neither opposed nor  supportive of the sinking of the  Chaudiere. My opposition lies  in the reaction by our Sechelt  nation. The article made it  sound that it was their way or no  way. My understanding was that  it was delayed and put through  the appropriate legal channels.  The threat of ending the  band's good neighbour policy  sounds like just that - a threat.  To say that quote "...We've  been giving, giving,  giving...they've been taking  from us." I find this very bitter  and unfounded. I think it is high  time for all Canadians to stand  together as ONE, not divided as  Canadians and Natives.  Finally I very much resent  the last paragraph quote "It's  only when the last tree is cut  down, the last river poisoned,  the last air polluted and the last  of the fish caught that people  will believe you can't live,  breathe and eat money." When  I see our Sechelt Native fishermen laying nets across river  mouths at spawning time, then  selling salmon for $1 per pound,  I really think that the Sechelt  Nation should lake a long hard  look at themselves.  The native population has no  restrictions on quantities or time  of year lhat Ihey can lake  salmon. Is this a responsible  attitude? The rest of Canadian  fishermen must follow the governmenl rules of stock protection involving quotas and specific lime limits sel up lo protect  the future of our fishing  resources.  JULIE FLAG  Sechelt  Arena schedule  disappointing  With regard lo the recently  published Sechelt Ice Arena  hours of operation, it should  have been referred to as hours  of non-operation.  How unfortunate for the children and youth of the Coast lo  have one of Iheir few facilities  closed for much of the duration  of Iheir Christmas vacation. A  free skate on the 24th and  another public skate on the 27th  are all that is offered. How disappointing for those who find  new skates under their Iree  Christmas morning.

I was 11 then,  going on 12 and we four boys in  grade 6 were the biggest kids in  our one room school. Of course,  at Christmas concert time we  marched right up to Ihe guy in  the red suit to gel our presents,  bul afterwards we'd snicker  wise-like and figure who it was  lhat was dressed up Ihis year.  Season's  Greetings  and all the best  for 1993  to you & yours,  from us at  I Show Piece Gallery I  Gilbert was Ihe biggest of Ihe  four of us and bossy and kind of  mean in the tricks he'd play on  the rest of us, especially me.  Boy, what wouldn't I give to get  the better of Gilbert just a few  titties, even once. At recess on  our rink, it was just snow  packed down. His team would  be 10 to 20 goals to our team's  goose egg.  Gilbert wasn't the only cause  of my trouble though. Miss Kil-  lick had told me to find a recitation for my part in the concert.  Gosh, recitations, everybody  knows, are just to fill in between  the plays and songs. The only  place I'd find a poem around  home was in the Ladies Home  Journal. No thanks.  The very day lhal I met Old  Whiskers. Miss Killick had really left us downright disappointed. She told us we couldn't  order our usual Santa Claus gift  out of Ihe catalogue. We'd done  it every year since I started  school but Miss Killick said  with wheat al 50 cents a bushel,  Ihey couldn't afford it. The little  kids cried and we pretended we  just suddenly had runny noses.  And worst of all. I had persuaded the little kids on my  leam lo ask for hockey slicks at  HAPPYi HOLIDAY  a 0.   ��� .

You  see Gilbert was the only one in  Ihe school with a real hockey  stick. I only had a red one from  Woolworth's my aunt in town  gave me.  So I waited in Ihe privy after  school until the others got out of  sight and my feet were beginning to tingle, just so's I could  walk along the sleigh tracks  alone and maybe cry a little if I  had to. It was almost dark when  I turned off the road down our  track and a voice out of nowhere  said, "Sorry to bull in..." and I  fell silly at being caught crying  and talking to myself.  And when Ihe voice asked if  my dad was home, I just nodded  and hurried on ahead. Later in  our kitchen I stared at the  bulging grain sack lied Ovct his  shoulder with a few twists of  binder twine, a long lorn soldier  coat like my dad had in the closet and a week's growth of white  whiskers that made his face look  like a stubble field after the firsl  snowfall. Bul his blue eyes  twinkled and looked right inside  you.  It turned out he knew my dad  and was on his way across the  river to find a job with Ihe railway's tie-cutting camp, and  would stay the night. Bul a  slomt blew up and stayed blowing and drifted the roads over.  Old Whiskers as I called him,  just lo myself of course, stayed  on for a while. "Pull," he said,  "don't push." But I wasn't gelling the hang of it. "Gel lhal  hockey stick I saw you come  home with" he said after Ihe  firsl morning, "and I'll show  you how to shoot." He cul me a  couple of pucks from ihe poplar  pole he had on the sawhorse,  then helped me trample snow  down next to the wood shed.  "H'mmm," he said as he saw  my feeble shot.  When we took Ihe pig swill  off ihe kilchen stove lhal  evening, he jammed the red  hockey stick Into the warm  mash halfway up Ihe handle and  lefl il there while we lugged the  buckets of swill on my sled lo  the sty. "That'll warm il up so I  can gel a curve bent in lhal  blade," he said to ease my puzzlement.  The next day he showed me  how io flick my wrist to raise  that puck knee-high. Boy! And  thai wasn't all he did, In the  evenings he read out of a book  he had in his sack by a Robert  Service.  And he let me use his book  lo learn The Cremation of Sam  McGee. Thai recitation sure  tickled all the grownups at our  concert.  But lhat wasn't as big a thrill  as scoring Iwo goals against  Gilbert's team, bolh limes when  he was in goal.  When Old Whiskers lefl he  forgot his book, or did he forget  on purpose? I've often wondered about lhat. Never saw him  again. See lots of Gilbert though  these days. He's working for me  as foreman in my sawmill  across ihe river in Ihe spruce  bush. He sure would like to buy  a share in my sawmill. Coast News, December 21, 1992  community  by Beverley Shipley  Enjoy your Chrislmas,  Creekers. and remember thai  you don't have lo have big  bucks lo do jusl lhal. Commercialism, noi jusl of Ihe Christmas season, is on Ihe rise every  year and it really is disgusting,  bul your Christmas does not  have to depend on large ticket  commercial ilems to be a happy  one. Convincing your kids who  might be expecting such items  can be a problem, though. A  simpler lifestyle which stresses  less materialism and TV watching is a big help, bul again, this  isn't always possible. Creating  gifts for others from your own  hands, especially wilh inexpensive or natural materials is a  good way lo start. The other  very important ingredient is lo  remember and remind family  members thai it is indeed Beltet  lo Give lhan to Receive.  A proclamation)  It's royally official! Elizabeth II, Queen of all England  and by the grace of God, head  of the Commonwealth, defender of Ihe faith? has made a  proclamation through her royal  subjects the Lieutenant Governor of British Columbia, David  Lam and Attorney General,  Colin Gabelmann.

The roule, which would have run through Wilson Creek, Davis  Bay and Selma Park, has met strong public opposition in recent  months and Sechelt council apparently responded.  Opposition first fonncd when Hylaw 22-18, which was created to  change a portion of the proposed route, went to public hearing earlier  in Ihe year. The bylaw had already received firsl reading by council  al lhat lime. Al lhe Dec. 2 council meeiing that first reading was  rescinded.  A new Bylaw 22-24 will amend the official community plan lo  delete "lhal portion of the major road network element designated  through a portion of Wilson Creek, Davis Bay, Selma Park and D.L.  1541." The public hearing for the new bylaw is scheduled for mid-  January and will be advertised in the district's municipal memo. All  concerned are urged to attend.  Terms of reference for a land use and planning study, lo be undertaken in Ihe new year, are already underway with participation from  Ihe Dislricl of Sechelt, SCRD and a few community groups. In addition, council confirmed that if the District of Sechell reserves Ihe  land for the future highway, no matter what ils location, they will be  fulfilling their responsibility with regard to future funding availability requirements.  datris bay nevus  by Jean Robinson, 885-2954  Our dear friend Hilda Coster-  ton is recovering from a broken  leg.

Chaudiere  The sunken ship in Sechell  Inlet brings to mind an opportunity my husband and I had to  snorkel off Grand Cayman  Island. One of the places we  were taken was over a sunken  ship of some vintage. The water  was likely 50 feet deep bul crystal clear.  Below was the wreck, a Russian freighter lhat had foundered  in a hurricane. It was partially  above the sea, rusted, ugly,  completely abandoned, of no  use to anyone. Of Ihe two vessels, the sunken one provided  tourist dollars, a home for nmlli  sea animals and likely harmed  the environment least.  Library  This is the last column before  Ihe New Year.

The drama production was The Grinch Who  Stole Chrislmas and it provided  a lot of material for chuckles.  May I wish all of you a joyous holiday season! See you in  1993.  by Lynn Mees  'Twas Ihe nighl before  Chrislmas, when all through Ihe  Mont, not a creature was gossiping, not even a monster. The  presidenl of Ihe Egmonl Community Club was sleeping, the  Vice too! But the Pres wouldn't  sleep because Santa was coming, he knew! He had a string  lied to his eta. On the other end  was Santa's beer. Suddenly he  fell a lug, and ran into the  room, bul il was on a monster.  So he was struck with gloom,  poor Pres thought his slocking  would never gel filled, but lhat  was a mistake, because in Ihe  morning Ihe slocking was full.  Full, yes of never ending projects and ideas. How do we get  Ihe Egmont school happening  again? Do you realize Sanla  how many kids we have in the  Mont? Yes, enough lo open up  the school.  A small core got together on  Wednesday to decorate the Iree,  thanks to Bill and Shirley who  got the iree. It's a beauty.  We all hope you recover  soon, Don Devlin and all Ihe  strength be wilh you, Katie.  Merry Christmas everyone and  be happy. May peace and love  fill your heart.

But beware:  Teenage Mutant  Ninja Turtle  paraphernalia is  now passe  Story by Darah Hansen  and Jane Seyd  Lee Taylor and Leigh Wakey recommend taking a (Iyer on kites if your gift buying  decisions are still up in the air. Darah Hansen photo  Gone are the days when  visions of sugar-plum fairies  were enough to light up the little  faces of North America's children.  These days if you want to see  anything lighl up, you're probably going to need batteries.  Among the season's hot  sellers in local toy departments,  anything remote control sells,  says Tim Enns of Magic Sound  Electronics.  Slacked among the Christmas collection in the store this  ye.v are monster trucks, police  cars and space-age type molor  creations - all moving quickly,  says Enns. And it's not just the  kids who are getting them, he  adds: "A lot of ladies are buying  these for their husbands."  Meanwhile, what child  wouldn't be thrilled to see a  walking, spinning Tyran-  nosaurus Rex under the tree?  "See his eyes light up as you  roam the primeval forest with  the most powerful creature that  ever existed" - a lot to get from  a 10-inch, wire-controlled figure.  Electronic musical instruments are doing well too, says  Enns - small keyboards in particular as well as the size one  "Dancing Feet" which shuffle  and jump to the sound of music.  And then there are trolls,  trolls and more trolls.  From puffy-haired mini trolls  that fit on Ihe ends of pencils to  costume-clad big guys lo "la  piece de resistance" of Trolls,  Baby Giggle - who crawls, falls,  giggles and gently beats her  hands and feel on the ground in  lemper-lantrum-like fashion -  Ihe mysterious Scandinavian  creatures are slill lopping Ihe  consumer Christmas charts.  "I think it has a lot to do with  the fact that they are totally  different than anything else,"  says Grandma's Toy Box manager Barbara Laffere, adding,  "ll seems lo be Ihe numbers Ihe  kids are interested in." Laffere  says she's heard kids compare  collections of 10,20 and 30  trolls.  At Pastimes, where Ihe philosophy of toy selling is  focussed more on the traditional, owners Lee Taylor and Leigh  Blakey say lhe classic toys are  still Ihe bestsellers.  Bridging the generation gap  are Lego sets, wooden trains,  Mr. Potaloe Head, Tonka Toys,  kites and slinky (now available  in turquoise and hoi pink).  The Darda World Class  Bump and Go Speedways are  doing really well, says Taylor,  bul even those little pull-back-  SEASONS GREETINGS  GIBSONS MOTOR INN  Haid-A-Way Restaurant  Hwy. 101 at Park Road  886-4501  Don't forget if you don't have room for  out-of-town guests - we do!  and-lel'er-rip car sets are moving into Ihe 1990s wilh "patented Mega Motor" and "precision  clutch and gears," designed by  Ihose famous German engineers.  For small hands which want  lo really gel involved, car and  airplane models are also making  a comeback, says Rick Dixon,  who manages Ihe loy department at Sechell Hardware. Car  sets come in varieties from the  68 Muslang to Ihe new Porsche.  For boys who jusl want lo be  boys, there's still the Range  Rider plastic rifle, not (o men-  lion Ihe oldie-bul-goodie water  pistol, guaranleed lo send sisters  into hysterics. Future loggers  can also get some practice on a  plastic chainsaw, which comes  complete with appropriate  sound.  For well-meaning adults  rushing out to buy Teenage  Mutant Ninja turtle paraphernalia, be warned. "They're not Ihe  hoi item anymore," Dixon comments. Other ilems wilh waning  interest value include science  kits and games - though Chinese  Checkers, Tiddley winks and  Operation can still be spotted on  the shelves.  Kids today know what they  like and what they don't, says  Dixon. And with today's hyped  TV advertising, they also "don'l  think 150 bucks for a toy is very  much money," he comments.  Parents apparently have other  ideas though. More middle-  income people have been looking for used toys Ihis year, says  Bobbi Bennett of Second Wave  children's consignment.  Amongst the tykes' clothing  in lhat store, a sel of wooden  blocks, a plastic sled, a Softball  mitt and an old viewmastcr with  cartridges featuring Buck  Rogers to Winnie Ihe Pooh are  some of the available items.  Classics like Gl Joe and  children's books are slill popular, says Bennett, who adds  people lend to hang on to the  name brand toys because Ihey  last so well.  And speaking of long-lasting,  what holiday season would be  compiele without Barbie?  "We carry Barbie because  she is Barbie," says Blakey  from Pastimes, who says Ihe  doll is a steady seller all year  round.  Barbie hasn't changed much:  "She's still got Ihose same  funny-shaped feel" says Blakey  - perennially ready to slip into  glamorous high-heeled shoes.  Bul while Ihe doll itself  hasn't changed much, the outfits  are more daring lhan ever.  Decked out in gold and green  spandex beach wear, Barbie,  Ken and little sis Skipper dolls  sport tans thai would make  cancer specialists shake their  heads in despair. As a modern  man on the go, Dance Magic  Ken comes with not jusl one -  but three separale outfits (ballet  lo salsa), while not lo be outdone, Totally Hair Barbie now  comes with her own styling gel.

Joel Johnstone  photo  Stitching together fashion dreams  by Darah Hansen  Sylvia Joe is not your average molher of  six.  Six years ago she was struggling to get by  - she didn't have a job, was involved in an  unstable marriage and found herself making  important choices in her life that were based  on need instead of want.  She decided to change all lhat.  "My molher told me there was a sewing  machine for sale in the second hand store, so  I bought il for $12," she says.  ' I didn't want to live on welfare for the rest of my life'  Sylvia,loe  "I just started playing wilh it. I guess you  could say my motivating thought was I  didn't want lo rely on a man and I didn't  want lo live on welfare for Ihe rest of my  life."  With her one-year-old son craddled in  one arm, Joe moves through the house bringing oul examples of her work. Hung on wall  hooks, draped on the backs of Ihe kilchen  chairs, Joe's clothing designs give colour to  Ihe otherwise plain family home tucked  away in Roberts Creek.  A black salin bolero jacket is her first  choice for display, "Thai's really mine," she  says of the design's origin. She points to the  red satin material delicately quilled inio Ihe  upper half of the little jacket, "Quilting is  my specially."  There's a surprising variety lo her clothing: sleek evening dresses, smart business  suits, colourful summer clothes, embroidered shirts and kids clothes.  Joe says she builds most of her ideas  from pictures in Vogue and L.A. magazines  and, of course, from watching Fashion TV.  "I really like florals," she says, adding  she's willing to try anything from leather to  silk. "I don't like lo limit myself... I've  never tried rubber though," she admits. "It's  not my thing."  She does a lot of beading too, something  thai shows a strong attraction to Native techniques. A member of the Sechelt Indian  Band herself, heritage plays a pari in her  work, bul she always adds her own touch,  That cross-over of traditional and original  was certainly evident in her most recent  fashion show, her third, at the Sechelt Indian  Band Hall, entitled Collage of Cultures,  Local models showed off Ihe elegance of  her clothing to the designer's complete salis-  faclion. "They really enjoyed themselves"  Joe says, "and that came through."  The clothes now hang on racks in her  workshop - a converted garage lhal doubles  as a bedroom - waiting to be sold.  A fashion show isn't how she does Ihe  most business, though Ihis one was successful. Joe sells her designs through local businesses, and through friends and family who  "just drop by and say 'What are you making?'  "I don't advertise as a rule," she says. "I  was afraid of getting loo big loo fasl." With  all her children, she says she has lo be realis  tic.  But she adds: "It's funny. The more I sold  the more I could make... After five years,  (the business) is starting to hold its own. I'm  gelling somewhere."  Her nexl move is taking her fashions over  to Vancouver, "I have some new ideas."  She's also gearing up for a new show in  spring.  Though she is reluctant to give away too  many of her secrets, Joe did say she has in  mind some distinctly West Coast styles as  well as original Peninsula designs.  "Landscape dresses" she calls them,  describing one vaguely as green and brown -  a hillside motif wilh cul beads showering  over the breast like a waterfall.  Hats loo, decorated wilh local plumage  and foliage, are in her future.  Her next move is taking her  fashions over to Vancouver  "Moss is so beautiful," she says, adding  with a laugh lhal she hasn't quite figured out  how lo get lhat look without it appearing as  if the model fell inio a river.  A telephone call ends the interview. A  friend is telling her about a design competition in early January with first prize being a  Irip lo Paris and $5,000.  "That means I have to come up with  something within a week," she says, her  mind already dreaming up new possibilities.  Singer Gail Bowen to  perform New Year's Eve  Gail Bowen will be performing al Chez Philippe Restaurant  al Bonniebrook Lodge on New  Year's Eve.

About 40 people turned  out for what ski club president  Michel Frenetle called a rewarding endeavour.  "Most of the people here ato  new lo ihe club and Iheir enthusiasm for the event was greal",  remarked Frenetle, Things like  cross-country skis, boots, poles  and lhe odd piece of downhill  equipment could be picked up  for almosl a song.  Top of the line ski-mountaineering gear was up for  grabs: a nearly brand new pair  of mountain louring boots lhat  formally fetches 400 smackeroos were offered for 60 bucks.  (Darn it, loo big!). These boots  look exactly like normal downhill boots but are lighter, more  flexible and have a Vibram-lype  sole for walking on rough surfaces. For serious mountain  adventurers, crampons (spikes)  can also be strapped to Ihe sole.  Ski mountaineering, a relatively new phenomenon, (or re-  emergence of an old sport),  offers Ihe best of bolh worlds.  ll combines downhill and  cross-country ski equipment in a  new technology that allows  enthusiasts to climb impossible  looking slopes, make a minor  adjustment and obtain unlimited  powder for sleep terrain downhill skiing.  A normal cross-country ski  package can cost upwards of  several hundred dollars bul at  Ihe swap it was possible lo buy  a pair of ski boots, bindings and  poles for under $100. (That's if  your a five-foot woman, weigh  100 pounds and have size seven  feet; what little men's equipment there was lasted only a few  seconds.)  There was also a good selection of children's equipment  which also sold well.  The liming of Ihe event (Dec.  10) was perfect, with fresh snow  draping Ihe local mountains and  a promising winter ahead. The  weather reports and this year's  farmers almanac all point to a  good ski season.  The ski club is responsible  for maintaining the Tetrahedron  Ski System, which includes the  five cabins and an extensive  trail network.  The work of Ihe ski club is  assisted by the Ministry of  Forests, which among other  things provides a helicopter  every fall lo distribute firewood  to all the cabins.  After an arduous day ski-  mountaineering all the essential  amenities await al a cabin like  Ihe one perched on lop of Mt.  Steele: Ihe firewood, matches,  axes, bedding and cooking  equipment could be lifesavers if  someone was either improperly  prepared or rough weather conditions set in forcing people to  extend their slay.  Frenetle hopes those who  visit the cabins this year will  leave Ihem in belter condition  than ihey were found; vandalism has plagued Ihe cabin closest to road access. On the  whole, however, Frenetle said  "Ihose who use the cabins are  very respectful and appreciate  Ihe importance of such facilities."  m__\\  ���rOw0 W  I w��V��**��^��W��wj|M  m  DAMAGE FREE WHEEL LIFT TOWING  SERVICING THE SUNSHINE COAST FOR OVER 20 YEARS  WE NOW TOW 5th WHEELERS  1886-9500  4x4 TOW TRUCK  24 HOUR SERVICE .

For example a person who  stipulates 'No Childien' as a  condilion ol rental would be In  violation ol Ihe Family Status  and the Human Rights Acts. The  landlord who places the advertisement and the newspaper  which publishes it would both be  in contravention ol the legislation and could have a complaint  Wed against Ihem.

Please come  and see me soon at the SPCA.  remember when  5 YEARS AGO  Long-time publisher of the  Sunshine Coasl News, Fred  Crtiice died early Friday morning, Dec. 18, 1987. He was 91.  Fred's life was a long love  affair wilh newspapers, primarily Ihe Regina Leader-Post and  lhe Coast News. His more than  60 years as a journalist were  interrupted by periods of national service in World War I and II.  Peggy Connor, newly elected  chairman of the Sunshine Coast  Regional District welcomed  Area Cs new director, Stan  Dixon at Ihe inaugural meeiing  of the board last week.

When  Sechelt council refused to support an application for a foreshore lease, which Hall needed  lo proceed with his projecl,  Hall gave the village his gram  application.  15 YEARS AGO  Among ihe stable beasts, a  new animal has become Ihe  guardian of the crib this year.

THE STAFF AND CREWS OF YOUR LOCAL HYDRO OFFICE  BG hydro CS  In a relaxed and easy atmosphere, people from all walks of  life are welcomed into the  Planned Parenthood clinic  which sets up shop eveiy Thursday nighl in the Coasl Garibaldi  heallh unit.  First opened two years ago,  Ihe clinic operates from 7 pm to  9 pm, and is open to virtually  anyone who is in need of birth  control or pregnancy coun-  ceiling.  For an annual fee of $5,  clients can expect confidential,  professional service wilh local  nurses, doctors and trained  counsellors who volunteer their  time.  'All options of birth  control will be fully  discussed, including  abstinence'  -Faye ik>bh  "We iry lo be non-judgmental," said Faye Bebb the program's director. "All options of  birth control will be fully discussed, including abstinence."  The right method will be  explored for Ihe individual  client, she said, and Ihe doctor is  on hand for examinations and  prescriptions.  The counsellors are also  available to discuss pregnancy  options and lend emotional support and professional guidance  to women considering adoption  or abortion.  Slowly, said Bebb, the clinic  is trying lo bring talk of AIDS  into Ihe regular counselling,  "bul it's not our major mandate."  However, Bebb said Ihe message is gelling out lhal il isn't  enough lo be protected anymore, individuals musl make  themselves safe loo - every  lime.  Planned Parenthood is an  international non-profit organization, funded in part by the  United Way and in Canada by  the federal and provincial governments. Donations are accepted locally al Box 194.1, Gibsons,  B.C. VON IVO and al ihe Vancouver main office al #105,  2902 Wesl Broadway, V6K  2G8.  "I think il's essential, I really  do," said Bebb of Ihe communily program. "We would rather  see people safe and prolected  than see unwanted pregnancies."  Woodcreek  developers  facing  charges  by Jane Seyd  It's left nearby residents in a  mess for several months now.  But the developers responsible for a malfunctioning sewage  treatment plant and drainage  field at the Woodcreek Park  subdivision near Gibsons are  now facing a mess of their own  - in court.  Developers Shirley and Don  Mclntyre of West Vancouver  have been charged with seven  counts under Ihe Waste Management Act, said conservation  officer Fred Barnes.  Two counts involve introducing "business waste" into  Ihe environment and five counts  concern releasing waste in contravention of the developers'  permil. All charges concern  effluent which has been surfacing from Ihe clogged drain field,  previously the topic of much  non-too-delicate discussion  among protection officers, residents and directors of the local  regional district.  A previous pollution abatement order and meetings to try  to solve the problem did not significantly change the situation.  According to Ministry of  Environment records, the plant  was never installed properly to  begin with and was also not  adequately maintained.  Recently, regional districl  engineers conducted a study lo  see what kind of upgrades  would be necessary before the  regional district could consider  taking over operation of the  plant from the developers.  According lo that report, on  a long-term basis it would be  better both environmentally and  economically to abandon the  existing plant altogether and  replace it with a new community septic system. Failing that,  major work would be required  on the existing system.  So far, however, no negotiations are underway between the  developers and the regional district.
