V8V 1X4  89.8  acts to reduce contamination  by Harold Blaine  Steps have been taken and are  being taken at the Woodfibre  Pulp Mill to reduce the contamination of upper Howe  Sound that caused the December 1 closure of the shellfish  fishery in certain local waters.  A similar program of contamination reduction was  reported last week al Ihe other  local pulp mill at Porl Mellon.  Western Pulp Limited Partnership, operator of the mill at  Woodfibre, issued a public  statement lasl week outlining a  four step program undertaken  by the company to reduce the  dioxin and furan contamination  blamed for Ihe fishery closures.  Besides the steps already  laken, the company has $17  of equipment and  modifications ordered for next  year to reduce dioxin formation. The mill had a $200  million modernization completed two years ago.  The text of Ihe Weslern Pulp  Ltd. public statement is as  follows: (Also see the statement  elsewhere in this issue by Dr.  Ray Marsh, local medical officer of health, on the Howe  Sound dioxin contamination  issue and the fishery closures.)  "The Woodfibre Mill has  operated on Howe Sound for  over 75 years. Chlorine has been  used in its pulp bleaching process for over 50 years.  "The mill completed a $200  million modernization program  in 1986, a substantial amount of  which was for environmental  improvements. The formation  of trace amounts of dioxin in  the pulp bleaching process only  came to lighl in the lasl two  years wiih the advance of more  sophisticated analytical measuring techniques.  "Since the problem was identified, the industry through the  Pulp and Paper Research Institute of Canada (PPRIC) has  been conducting extensive  research on how these toxic  compounds are formed and  what steps can be taken to  minimize their formation.  Western Pulp has worked closely with PPRIC and has conducted a number of mill scale  trials on the effect of process  changes towards dioxin formation.  "Four major findings to  dale, and aclion taken by  Weslern Pulp in response to  these discoveries, are as follows:  1. PCP Contaminated Chips  "Sawmill chips contaminated  with anti-sap stain (Penta-  chloro-phenols) have been  shown lo produce chlorinated  dioxin in the bleaching process.  All of Woodfibre chip suppliers  were forced to switch to alternate anti-stain products by  mid-1988.  2. Aromatic Defoamers  "Aromalic oil based defoamers used in brown stock washing  were discovered lo contain  substantial amounts of dioxin  and furan precursors. As soon  as this information became  available, Woodfibre switched  lo a non-aromatic, paraffinic  based brown stock defoamer lo  eliminate this source of precursor.  3. Improved Washing  "Good brown stock washing  is now a recognized prerequisite  to reducing dioxin formation  and improving effluent quality.  Weslern Pulp will spend $17  million in 1989 lo oplimize the  brown slock washing ai Woodfibre. Equipmenl for ihis project is on order for completion  by Ihe end of 1989.  4. Chlorine Application  "The   formation  of chlor-  inaled dioxin and furans is also  dependent on ihe chlorine applicalion and mixing efficiency.  By increasing ihe use of chlorine  dioxide, Woodfibre has reduced  the amount of chlorine usage by  over 20 percent since Ihis issue  arose. The recent modernizalion project included a series of  high efficiency chlorination  mixers. Trials are currently-  underway to furiher subslan-  lially reduce chlorine use and io  oplimize ihe chlorine/chlorine  dioxide applicalion melhod  with a view to further minimizing chlorinated dioxin formation.  "Weslern Pulp will continue  lo work lowards reducing ihe  unwanted formation of chlorinated dioxins. For furiher  technical inlormalion refer to  the Pulp and Paper Research  Institute of Canada," said Ihe  Western Pulp Limited Partnership public sialemenl.  The Sunshine  Published on the Sunshine Coast        25'per copy on news stands     December 12,1988    Volume 42    Issue 50  Aquaculture Act recommendation  Ombudsman report  on fish farms  by Harold Blaine  Regulatory legislation and  public consultation for the B.C.  coast aquaculture industry is  recommended by British Columbia Ombudsman Slephen  Owen in a reporl issued Friday.  Ombudsman Owen says the  experience developed by the  provincial government in dealing with aquaculture should be  used as an example for integrated resource management  throughout the province.  The new, burgeoning aquaculture industry with aboul 60  fish farms already located here  on the Sunshine Coast, has  given rise to widespread local  public concern. The Sunshine  Coast Regional Dislrict (SCRD)  board is now developing a  report on local government pro  blems and concerns stemming  from local fish farms.  Owen recommends that the  provincial government should  pass an aquaculture act to solve  the overlapping jurisdictional  problems now plaguing the fast  growing fish farm industry. The  Ombudsman studied the industry for a year after receiving  numerous appeals from coastal  property owners, resource use  industries and the fish farmers  themselves.  . Administering sustainable  developmeni without environmental damage is recognized by  Ihe provincial government, the  public, business and Ihe international community as perhaps today's major issue." said Owen.  "And the opportunity and  challenge of aquaculture  presents a useful case study for  Competition was keen here between Pemberton and Pender Harbour Secondary Schools in a basketball tournament Friday and  Saturday al Chatelech Secondary School in Sechelt.

The Ombudsman's report describes the current slate of the  aquaculture industry in B.C.,  the problems that can arise  among apparently competing  interests, regulatory initiatives  in other maritime jurisdictions,  and the steps taken in B.C. by  the provincial government both  to promote and to regulate the  industry.  It draws on principles of administrative fairness in making  recommendations dealing with  legislative authority, integrated  resource management and conflict resolution. The report  makes the following major  points.  - The development and management of resource use industries requires clear legislative  direction.  - All significantly affected  parties should have the opportunity for meaningful participation in resource use planning  and decision making.  - This participation will be  enhanced through access to all  relevant information, the opportunity to make timely submissions, the right to receive  detailed reasons for resource use  decisions and the right of appeal  to an independent, expert  tribunal.  - Integrated resource management requires accurate resource  inventories, clearly stated  resource inventories, clearly  stated provincial objectives,  local involvement in planning  and neutral environmental impact assessment.  - Litigation of resource use  disputes can cause expensive,  divisive and unstable results  which will increase confrontation in society.  - Such disputes will be successfully resolved only through  a consensual process which involves all legitimate interests  and which recognizes the long  term interdependence of the  parties.  Owen says the aquaculture  study was initiated by his office  as a result of numerous concerns expressed by coastal property owners, other resource use  industries and established  aquaculture businesses. The  report is the result of a year of  research and consultation and  the recommendations address  both government and private  sector concern.  "The promise of aquaculture  will only be realized in a climate  of environmental conservation  and business stability. Confrontation must be avoided." says  Owen.  "The principles of administrative fairness, integrated  resource management and consensual dispute resolution  recommended for aquaculture  in this report can also be applied  generally to all provincial land  and resource use regulation."

A chinook salmon caught north  of the Port Mellon pulp mill in  Howe Sound showed moderate  levels of dioxin.  Strachan said he has met with  Federal Fisheries Minister Tom  Siddon. He has also received  details from a federal study into  the effects of dioxin on salmon,  both in B.C.'s coastal waters,  and in their inland spawning  areas.  The federal study shows low  levels of dioxin in some salmon  caught near pulp mills on the  West Coast, and in one case,  downstream from a pulp mill in  Quesnel.  Last fall, adult and immature  salmon were tested from the  Fraser River watershed, Howe  Sound, Chatham Sound and  Morse Basin near Prince  Rupert, and Robertson Creek  near Port Alberni.  Also, juvenile chinook salmon were collected in the early  spring both upstream and  downstream of selected pulp  mills. In the case of the  chinook, a sample of fish ranging in size from two to three inches, taken downstream from a  Quesnel pulp mill, showed  elevated levels of dioxin, said  the Strachan statement.  One chinook of intermediate  size taken north of the Port  Mellon pulp mill, had moderate  levels of dioxin. Fish of Ihis size  are not harvested for commercial reasons, but may be caughl  by recreational fishermen.  Adult salmon had low to  non-detectable levels of dioxin  as they relumed to their spawning areas.  "It must be stressed lhal  Health and Welfare Canada has  said that there is no heallh  hazard lo consumers of salmon  in lighl of the sludy," Strachan  said. "However, as far as I am  concerned, our environmental  protection musl sel the pace for  Canada.  "I believe ihe public should  have quick access to details  about dioxin and how the  chemical affects Ihe environment. This information will also  help B.C. in drafting lough new  laws affecting pulp mill  discharges.  "I reiterate ihai wc are looking al fines of up lo one million  dollars and closure of mills if  necessary to ensure lhal our new  legislation will be followed."  The minisler said he is asking  federal authorities to update  him regularly on Iheir research  findings.

Aldermen December 6, agreed the town clerk should write  to the corporate headquarters of Canada Post in Vancouver  to inquire what the plans are, if any, in regard to the Gibsons  Post Office. The local postmaster recently retired and there  hasn't been a permanent appointment to replace him, it was  said.  Serving the Sunshine Ccfast since 1945 Coast News, December 12,1988  Comment  m  Poll paints  a painful picture  Love and charily, hopefully, should be virtues equally  of all Canadians as of the people of our Sunshine Coasl.  And Christmas is traditionally the season of 'comfort and  joy'.  There wasn't much love and charily or comfort and joy,  however, in the results of a recent public poll. Canadians  full of the Christmas spirit came out 84 percent in favour  of putting the poor and destitute to forced labour instead  of giving them welfare.  To say the least, lhat wasn't very nice for Christmas!  Thank goodness the results of lhal poll don't accurately  reflect the charity of Canadians. Experience shows our  people are nowhere nearly thai hard hearted and mean.  Whenever a human need or case of suffering becomes  evident in our communities, Canadians rally around lo  help. Thai this is the case here on Ihe Sunshine Coasl is  certainly true, for this Christmas this newspaper hasn't  heard of a single case of need thai isn't being answered.  Rather lhan proof of Canadian hard heartedness and  selfishness, we would consider the results of thai welfare  poll to be evidence of what would best be called a public  fallacy. Since everyone knows ii is beller for all lo do iheir  share of Ihe work of the human community, everyone asked about welfare automatically answers that it would be  beller for everyone to have suitable and meaningful work.  But it is very difficult, perhaps impossible, to bring  about a public understanding of the fact thai all but a  negligible few of those people on welfare have, at least for  Ihe present, no alternative. There are as many reasons for  that as there are forms of human difficulty and disaster.  Most often the reason for an individual or family being  on welfare isn't readily apparent. Almost always the  welfare recipient will make every effort to minimize or  hide an unfortunate situation.  Welfare recipients are already suffering more lhan  enough from the slings and arrows of human misfortune.  They don'l need more pain and ignonomy heaped upon  them by an unthinking public.  At liiis Christmas time, at least, our poverty-stricken  people on welfare and in Ihe midst of suffering deserve lo  have fellow men willing ai least lo make ihe leap of faith  necessary lo recognize the essential goodness of each and  every human being. May ihe next such poll among Canadians see us 84 percent in favour of helping our fellow  man.  >v  5 YEARS AGO  Port Mellon members of Local 1119, International  Paperworkers of America voted 83 percent to reject a  three year contract offer from the Pulp and Paper  Labour Relations Bureau. Major issues in the seven  month dispute were contract length, pensions, job  security and contracting out.

Medical officer reports  On dioxins and furans  Editor's Note: Sunshine Coast  Medical Health Officer, Dr.  Ray Marsh prepared the following statement on the matter of  dioxins and furans in Howe  Sound, and the recent closure of  the shellfish fisheries in certain  local waters for health reasons.  Dr. Marsh prepared the statement at the request of this  newspaper.  by Dr. Ray Marsh  Medical Health Officer  Coast/Garibaldi Health Unit  There are Iwo groups of compounds, each containing many  members, about 75 in the dioxin  group and 135 furans. Thrmost  studied and by far most toxic is  2,3,7,8 -  tetRachlorodibenzo- ���  para-dioxin (2,3,7,8,  T.C.D.D.)  They can be found in small  amounts throughoul the environment and in (he fatly tissue  of all normal healthy Canadians. They degrade slowly, if  al all, in nature and bio-  accumulate in food chains.  Sources are mainly from  multiple human activities, the  major being past PCB use and  certain pesiicides production, as  well as from uncontrolled refuse  burning. Regulations, however,  have now greatly reduced these  sources.  The administration of dioxins  and furans to laboratory animals causes a variety of toxic ef-  fects, these being different for  differing animal species. None  of these effects have, however,  been oberved among the general  human population. Occupational and accidental high  dose exposure has caused a skin  condition, called chloracne, bul  no other effects. No long term  low dose effects have yet been  identified in humans. Two  possible exceptions to the above  were outbreaks in Japan and  Korea of a disease in newborns  called Yusho. These were traced  to the consumption of heavily  contaminated rice with PCB  containing furans. Since the  source of the problem was  discovered there have been no  new cases and the condition has  never been seen elsewhere.  The public heallh concern  over dioxins and furans is based  on ihe biological effects observed in experimental animals and  the theoretical implications to  humans, also their stability in  nature and bio-accumulation  through food chains. Considering these, there is concern for  Ihe future if we continue to  pour these compounds inlo the  environment.  To date, I am not aware of a  single case of disease in this  area, attributable to dioxins or  furans, The recent closure of  fishing in the area demonslrates  the extent to which regulation is  being applied in an effort to  prevent, as yet undetected, pro  blems and ensure the safety of  the public.  It is unfortunate that we musl  do withoul the delicious  prawns, shrimps and crabs,  which I have only recently been  able to regularly enjoy. More  regrettable is Ihe effect on local  fishermen of Ihe recent fisheries  closure. It is, however, reassuring that our federal regulatory  agencies are able to monitor and  intercede before problems occur, rather lhan after.

James Joyce  Environment in peril  Who pays for the disasters  by Joan Riggs  The splendor of red, yellow  and orange maple leaf trees in  Ihe Fall may soon remain only  in our memories and our  children's imaginations. Already the choice of where one  can fish or let our children swim  is made nol by us bul by Ihe  level of pollution in our water.  With the erosion of the ozone  layer and the high level of air  pollution the family farm may  no longer be in an area in which  wheal or peaches can grow.  Pollution is beginning to die-  tale our lives, ll will control the  lives of our children if we don't  do something aboul it, Is thai  the kind of legacy you wanl lo  leave your children?  The righl to a clean environment is somelhing most of us  have taken for granted and few  of us have Ihought about. Yet,  as entire species of animals,  ways of life and peoples are in  danger, a clean environment  becomes a human righl we can  no longer take for granted.  In recognition of the 40th anniversary of the Universal  Declaration of Human Rights,  we sadly must add anolher basic  right that we must fight for in  the future.  Magali Marc, an environmental and human rights activist, begins with the premise  that we have a right to a clean  environment and poses the  question, "Who should be paying the bill?"  She spoke at 'Human Rights  into the 1990's and Beyond', a  conference sponsored by the  Human Rights Education and  Research Centre at University  of Ottawa. The issues discussed  at the conference will be  published as a book in 1989.  Magali Marc argues that we,  as consumers of products, are  not paying for the real cost of  the products we buy if we are  not including in that cost what  Ihe product takes out of the environment.  When we buy a car, we pay  for the cost of the parts of the  car, the labour that went into  making it, the profit for the industrialist, the insurance, the  registration and other similar  costs. We do nol pay for Ihe  cosl of cleaning the air thai our  car will pollute.  We do not pay for the replenishing of the earth so that we  will not run out of sleel, oil and  gas. We do not pay for the  destruction of farm land when  super highways arc built.  She argues thai already the  cost of the pollution bill is  unevenly divided. The rich and  the poor have access to different  types of environments, and suffer differently from the consequences of pollution.  The rich can ensure thai no  industry is built near their  homes, no dumpsite is situated  near their children's schools.  They can buy cottages and continue to enjoy unspoiled nature.  They can afford to commute  to quiet districts where noise  pollution does not exist because  bylaws have been imposed  which do not allow trucks on  their roads.  But what of the poor who are  forced to settle in inner city  dwelling or in communities on  the outskirts of cities and beside  polluting industry? Are we going to have two different levels  of quality of life? One for the  rich, one for'the poor?  The environment bill is not  paid equally from country to  country, either. For many poor  nations, poverty and economic  pressures lead to economic decisions that are disastrous environmentally.  Tropical rainforests are being  destroyed, and toxic wastes  from rich countries allowed to  be dumped for short-term  economic gain.  Pollution and the destruction  of a healthy environment  crosses over all national  borders. In Canada, our maple  trees will be dead in 15 years  because of U.S. acid rain.  The cutting down of the rain  foresls in Brazil will affect the  air we all breath. The dumping  of chemicals into the ocean in  Japan will wash up on the  shores of all countries with an  ocean seaboard.  Without international intervention, we will be unable to  put a stop to pollution and protect our environment.  Magali Marc argues that if we  do not pay now we will have a  much higher price to pay later.  Or, more to the point, our  children will have to pay.  If we continue on this path  we will have mortgaged their  future for our own comfort.  Acknowledging that there is  an environmental cost for every  commodity produced, we move  to the next step, which is, who  will pay?  Magali Marc argues in favour  of the polluters paying the costs.  That is the corporations who  manufacture the goods. And if  they pass it on to us as the consumer then we are paying the  real cost of the product.  The other solution, she says,  is to simply wait until we have  disasters and crises like the PCB  fire   in   Quebec   and   then  'cleanup'. The assumption  underlying 'cleanup' is that corporations have the right to  pollute and the public has the  responsibility to pay.  We can either protect our environment or try to clean up  each environmental crisis. The  frightening thought is that for  some of these crises, we will  never know the true environmental cost.  Cleanup is also a much more  expensive route than prevention, and some disasters cannot  be 'cleaned up'. Once all the  maple trees are gone, nothing  can bring them back.  Will we only know the costs  that we can see and count?  What is the real cost of a foresi  being cut down? We know wc  lose all of the trees but whal of  the animals that lived in those  forests?  What of the surrounding  farm lands that relied on the  trees as a wind shield to preveni  soil erosion? How will our air  be affected, since trees produce  oxygen?  And what of the beauty and  peace that forest brought to us?  How do we measure these  things?  There is a familiar list of excuses for not being environmentally responsible. Corporations  say this will cost us too much  money, or it will involve the loss  of jobs.  Some politicians tell us thai  environmental protection can  only occur in a prosperous  economy. Yet, economic prosperity, especially in Canada, is  based on access to resources.  Without maintaining or replenishing our resources we are  Please turn to page 6 Coast News, December 12,1988  Letters to the Editor  Referendum needed on Sechelt Canal  Editor:  What sort of image comes to  people's minds when they envision a canal through Sechelt?  Grassy promenades along the  Rideau? Canoeing the tranquil  Trent?  Or do they understand that  the Sechelt Canal will be an industrial installation more akin  to the seaway or the locks on the  Mississippi?  The tidal difference at either  end will require locks, which in  turn need machinery, maintenance and backup facilities. The  Department of Transport, not  the parks department will be in  charge. There will be safety  regulations and restricted access.  The result will be an alien  swath of concrete and chainlink  fence straight through the heart  of Sechelt.  But that's the least of it.  Much worse will be the fate of  Sechelt's magnificent beaches,  our greatest natural asset and  tourist attraction.  There will have to be a  breakwater to protect the canal  from the swells of Georgia  Strait. Floats will be needed  where boats can wait for tide  and weather. There will be  marine service, washrooms and  parking ashore.  Once begun, there will be no  way to contain this development. It will spread, not outward, because the water soon  becomes too deep for a breakwater, but laterally cutting off  more and more of the beach.  Sewage will be flushed from  the boats, oil will foul the water.  Sechelt's lovely waterfront will  become a bedlam of noise and  pollution.  We don't have to build the  canal to know what will happen, a summertime stroll  through the Gibsons marina will  provide a foretaste. Contemplate a swim there, if you  will.  So why is a canal being considered at all? Because a handful of speculators would like to  cash in on properties in Sechelt  Inlet.  And a few merchants  West sets record straight  Editor's Note: A copy of the  following was received for  publication.  Mrs. Peggy Connor, Chairman  Sunshine Coast Regional  District, Sechelt, B.C.  Certain 'disclosures' in a letter of Ms C. Meda to both local  papers re the controversy of the  Cliff Gilker Park/Golf Course  need some reply, although I  have tried my best to stay out of  any arguments which may have  originated in the years when I  was personally involved in  regional affairs.  I can speak from my own  personal knowledge covering  the period from the late sixties  to 1976, when I was first a  member of the ARDA committee, later a director of the SCRD  with several terms as chairman.  At the time I also helped Ed  Sherman in establishing the administration of the golf club,  setting up its constitution and  bylaws including registration  with the Victoria authorities.  I   also   helped   Mr.   Eric  Hensche at that time in the  development of DL 1506 by administering a number of LIP  grants amounting to a considerable sum of federal funds.  I agree with Ms Meda that  Cliff Gilker Park is not a  wilderness park. This confusion  came about by a remark of the  then deputy minister of lands  and forests, who after receiving  our application for the lease of  DL 1506 visited the district and  was taken by me around the  trails and bridges.  He remarked during our conversations on the beauty of the  park and that had he known  how beautiful the park was, he  might have hesitated to give permission for development, but  kept the DL under the forestry  department.  However, having once given  permission to build the trails  and bridges and after spending  all the federal LIP funds, he  was prepared to give the SCRD  the lease.  Thanks to all  Editor:  We would like to thank all  our donors and volunteers for  their contribution to our fundraising campaign 88. We raised $17,000 locally this year.  We just received a $5,500  grant from Vancouver Foundation for three of our services for  children.  We would also like to thank  the Coast News for the excellent  layout of our full page ad. It  was so well done we used it to  make posters. Thank you, Fran,  for all the work you put into it.  A special thanks to Bruno  Gerussi for acting as general  chairman. We really appreciated his support.  To all our dedicated canvassers, who took on the arduous task of requesting funds,  your commitment to our cause  made the campaign succeed.  We found we have some very  generous supporters in our community. Thank you again. Your  support means far more to us  than simply dollars.  Merry Christmas to all of  you.  Valerie Silver  Chair of Fundraising  Homeitiaker praise  Editor:  May I once again add public  praise where praise is due,  namely to the Homemakers Service and all the homemakers,  making a career of helping to  keep our homes clean and us  out of the high priced hospitals,  to bring a bit of bright conversation to cheer us up while they  work, and help with our shopping needs.  So homemaker 'clients'  smarten up and join me, and try  to make the Homemakers Service  worthwhile  by  wishing  them all, the very best of the  season. A merry Christmas and  a happy new year (the year  around).  To you younger people, give  a donation to your community  services and thus help out this  low paying service.

During that period some  members of the golf club requested to appear before the  board or one of the committees,  asking for a portion of the park  be transferred to the golf club.  At that time the board made it  quite clear that we could not  abandon any part of the park,  which was developed with  federal funds.  Any further discussions with  the golf club would have to be  conducted with a duly authorized delegation. Some time later I  was advised that a membership  meeting was held and turned  down any plans for expansion.  As far as I as chairman of the  board was concerned, the matter was finished and filed.  This is my recollection of  how the matter was resolved.  Any claims that the SCRD asked the golf club to withdraw any  application for DL 1506 is fictional. (At least till 1976 after  which time I do not know who  and what was cooked up in  dealings with the park.)  Frank West  think they might turn an extra  dollar.  The irony is that there is not a  straw of evidence that Sechelt  won't lose more tourists than it  gains. It could just as easily  become yet another ugly way-  point to more attractive places.  If the boomers get their way,  the canal could be opened about  the time we are observing the  500th anniversary of Columbus'  discover of the Americas. It's  worth remembering that the  westward advance of Europeans  has been one of plundered  resources, blighted landscapes  and moving on to the next  pristine valley or uncut forest.  But there is no more West.  This is it. If we foul our nest  here, we're going to have to live  in it.  This decision is much too important to be left to a eabal of  developers. If the canal doesn't  founder soon under its own  dead weight, we need a referendum.  Mike Poole  Sechelt, B.C.

These, she said, included Ihe  laying of over 800 metres of new  mains and the extensive modernization of the Gibsons sewage  treatment plain.  In addition she talked about  the steps being taken lo develop  the business core of lower Gibsons, and the purchase of properly for a walerlronl park this  past summer.  In appointing the chairmen  of each committee for 1989,  Strom replaced outgoing alderman Norm Peterson on Ihe  Sunshine Coasl Regional Board  with Gerry Dixon.

On Hardy Island  The Sunshine Coast Regional District (SCRD) board's  planning committee December 8 held out for the usual five  percenl dedication for parkland in a proposed 688 hectare  subdivision on Hardy Island.  But ihe committee did agree to a three percenl parkland  dedication now, wilh a covenant from Ihe developer agreeing  to provide the remaining two percent later.  The subdivision proposal is undergoing revision and the  developer asked lo have the park reserve question settled first.  The committee was told il was only required by law to ask for  a dedication up to five percenl, and thai it could accept a  lesser amount than five percent.  The developer offered about IV. percent, bul was turned  down. The committee also required assurance thai the park  reserves should be suitable for a playing field and other public-  uses to the satisfaction of SCRD requirements.  The developer agreed to lurn over another site of about 1 Vi  percent of the subdivision. He agreed to Ihe required covenant for a further two percent at a later date as development  of the subdivision proceeds.

WILLEE'S FAMILY RESTAURANT For Gibsons  Harbour authority  being considered  by Harold Blaine  The idea of establishing a  local harbour authority at Gibsons, possibly with a board of  directors composed of local  fishermen and boaters, is being  examined by Gibsons Town  council. The purpose would be  to put routine affairs of the harbour in local hands instead of in  the more remote federal bureaucracy.  Council December 6, received  a letter from Fisheries and  Oceans property and operations  official G.P. Lacey showing the  possibility of a harbour authority grew out of his discussions  with Mayor Diane Strom during  his recent visit here.  The town has been having  difficulties lately getting harbour repairs done and in getting  its wishes across to those  responsible for deciding on the  requirements for harbour improvements.  "The harbour authority contains many advantages to the  previous practice of leasing harbours out to local communities.  If you would like to discuss this  concept further, I would be  happy to meet with you and any  other interested parties," wrote  the small craft harbours branch  assistant regional manager at  Vancouver.  Lacey said a harbour authority could be formed by the  municipal council if a separate  local corporation of fishermen  and boaters weren't deemed  suitable. A harbour authority  would administer the local harbour, set and collect docking  fees, manage minor maintenance and manage the day-today affairs of the harbour in accordance with the Fishing and  Recreational Harbours Act.  The new federal government  program of local harbour  authorities is aimed at  eliminating inadequacies in  many harbours, inadequacies  that stem from imprecise  targeting of upkeep programs.  Federal policy says the goals are  maximum safety for fishermen  and recreational boaters, and  adequate protection for boats.  Says the federal minister's  policy statement: "We want the  ports to stay open, to operate  efficiently and to contribute to  the economy of the community  and the regions they serve.  These measures will accomplish  the following positive goals.  "1. Put ongoing maintenance  of existing small craft harbours  and facilities on a more solid  base.  "2. The reopening of harbour facilities which have had  to be barricaded because they  have become hazardous.  "3. Launching of new economic infrastructure projects  (i.e. services and facilities at certain harbours where these improvements are needed to meet  expanding demand from  tourism and other industries.)  "We are inaugurating a new  management approach which  will give fishermen and other  users a more direct role in the  management and operation of  their harbours and, at the same  time, deliver important benefits  and cost-effectiveness. Under  this approach the federal  government will assist in the  formation of incorporated harbour authorities whose directors  will be appointed by fishermen  or, in some cases, by local  governments," said the policy.  "The harbours involved will  be leased by the Crown to the  harbour authorities. The authorities will help the federal  government directly in the setting of priorities for improvement work and other development at these locations.  "Harbour authorities will  also undertake the day-to-day  management of harbours, including the responsibility for  much of their minor maintenance. They will be authorized  to collect fees for services provided to the harbour users and  to use these revenues to fulfill  their management and operational responsibilities, including  the hiring of harbour  managers."  "Groups and communities  which enter into long term  agreements for the establishment of harbour authorities will  be given priority consideration  for the funding of major work  under both the ongoing and the  special infrastructure programs.  "One benefit of the harbour  management approach will be a  better yield for dollar of small  craft harbour funding. Harbour  improvement projects will  match local needs and priorities  more precisely. And local purchasing of services and equipment by the harbour authorities  will promise a better deal for the  taxpayer," says the federal  small craft harbours policy  statement.

"1 like the community weekly  ��j' better than the daily to work in  N. since the weekly demands a  J wider scope of activity from an  > editor. For instance, I cover  I municipal affairs and olher  j evenls here in the town as well  f" as doing articles on activities in  I Gibsons, like the one I did the  1 other week on the swimming  ' pool and writing editorial comment and opinion." said  Harold.  He added, "The daily  newspaper confines a person in  a narrow field and keeps him  there."  ��� Harold went on to say that he  ; enjoys ihe close association with  I people that communily  .' newspapering provides. He said  ' that in fact the challenges and  , atmosphere of this kind of jour-  I  nalism are quite fulfilling.  John Burnside, the Coasl  ; News publisher, saw Harold's  I posilion wanted advertisement  I- in The Publisher, a trade jour-  H nal for the community news-  ���:'paper industry, just at the time  H when he himself wishes to try  ;'other fields after 12 years as  ' :editor of the Coast News.  "Interviews wilh him con-  i vinced me," said Burnside,  .' "that he was just the man to be  ^-.editor of our publication."  Harold Blaine had started a  ; weekly newspaper in a com-  ;��munity just north of Kingston,  ^Ontario, but had soon found  "-there was no market there for a  ijjfull time publication. Hence his  ad in The Publisher.  I   And before that?  HAROLD BLAINE  "Just before thai I edited a  community newspaper called  The Beaver near Kingston for  eight years."  "And ihen to retrace my  years in Ihe newspaper business,  I was wiih The Liberal, a community press in Richmond Hill,  Ontario. The name of that  newspaper, by the way, harks  back to the days when a  newspaper openly supported  one political party."  Before coming to Ontario,  Harold Blaine had spent 12  years with the Chronicle-  Herald, a provincial daily in  Halifax, and with its sister  metropolitan daily, the Mail-  Star, in ihe editorial departments and in reporting.  "I covered the waterfront,  the navy, ihe merchant marine,  the fishing fleet, as well as city  hall."  "During my years in the  Halifax area I played a part in  the setting up of a single  municipal government for  Halifax and its suburbs, first in  Canada."

Speaking of his choice of  Gibsons, Harold said, "I like  the ocean, and I have family  nearby, a son in Vancouver and  a son, daughter, and brother in  Calgary. My wife and youngest  daughter are still in Ontario  winding up our affairs there."  What about your very early  years?  "I was born on my father's  homestead in 1933 in sight of  the Riding Mountain Park in  Manitoba in such a snowstorm  that the doctor did not get to us  until five days later."  "I went to a one room  school. My mother had taught  in nearby Makinak before she  married. Later we moved to  Dauphin, a railway town. My  father farmed and was in the  business of cattle buying. I have  spent many an hour on horseback helping him."  "After taking courses that interested me at the University of  Manitoba, I weni to Montreal,  to the literary community there,  because I was very interested in  writing. And from there into the  newspaper business."  "In my time," said Harold,  "I've worked with all the main  political parties and once held  John Diefenbaker in great  respect, especially in his opposition days. But I find party  politics hold no great interest  for me. What is important to  me are the rights and wrongs of  the issues we will face in our  community and in the  country."  "My only wish now in this  business is to serve the whole  community."  Environment  Continued from page 2  undermining our own lives and  futures.  Magali's question remains,  "who will pay the environmental bill?" In the long run the  answer is obvious. We all will.  In some ways, we are paying the  environmental bill now, but the  load is not shared fairly.  The question is, will we pay  through consumer prices that  reflect the environmental cost of  the product?  Or, will we pay through tax-  subsidized cleanups? Or will we  pay through losing out lakes,  our forests, the air we breathe,  our own health and ultimately  our planet?  We cannot deal with this pro-  Iblem in isolation. It is the most  'glaring opportunity for unified  global work. We share a common earth, a common sky and a  common future.  It is time to construct policies  and live our lives in ways that  reflects the belief that we and  future generations have the  right to a clean environment.  ***  Editor's Note: December 10,  1988 marked the 40th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

Oceanmount to  open in Spring  by Harold Blaine  Construction and paving of  streets, installation of street  lights and underground services,  has begun for what is expected  to be the largest and highest  quality residential development  in Gibsons Town in a long time.  Delayed a year due to unforeseen circumstances after approval of town council, the  Oceanmount Subdivision is now  going to have its 55 lots on the  market in March and April. The  services and road paving are to  be complete May 24, says John  Kavanaugh of 501 Abbs Road,  spokesman for the three-way  partnership of local business  people.  Town Planner Rob Buchan  was pleased to report to Gibsons council December 2 that  the project is proceeding. He  says there is probably no comparable subdivision in the whole  Sunshine Coast with regard to  the commanding view and location.  Situated on the plateau on the  forested background of Gibsons, the subdivision overlooks  the town and Howe Sound. It's  within walking distance of the  Gibsons regional shopping centre, schools and other essential  �� services, says Kavanaugh.  Oceanmount Estates Ltd.  comprises three properties joined together. About two-thirds  of the lots will be prime view  properties to form the ultimate  subdivision in the Gibsons area,  says Kavanaugh.  On a total of 18 acres, with  one acre set aside for future use,  the single family lots are of  varied sizes, some of them very  large.

Just as we promised.  Moreover, 92% are satisfied with their mail delivery, while  91% believe delivery to be as convenient or more convenient than  before.  The message comes across loud and clear: an overwhelming  majority of Rural Canadians surveyed believe that the post office is  moving in the right direction. Furthermore, they consider that  enlisting the help of local businesses helps to provide better  services.  Our next step: Free lockbox service  Beginning January 3,1989, customers who depend on lockboxes  as their primary means of delivery will no longer have to pay a  lockbox service fee. Charges will cease to apply for these customers  when their lockboxes come up for renewal.  As part of our ongoing commitment to provide better services  to you we will be mailing full details to you in the near future.

An advertisement in  ihis newspaper tells when the  oratorio will be presented in  your part of the coast.  "The last time an oratorio  was presented on the Sunshine  Coasl," said Lyn Vernon who is  ihe direclor and producer of  Handel's Messiah, "was in the  late 1950s when Olivet to  Calvary was directed by my  mother.  "The singers came from Port  Mellon, and church choirs in  Gibsons with myself accompanying Ihem on the piano. Thai  was in ihe Elphinsione gym of  that time."  Now in 1988 the 80 singers  come from communities between Pender Harbour and  Hopkins. Among" the choral  groups represented arc the Sunshine Choristers, ihe Pejidcr  ftarSoiiF'singeV^ltet'ei'iieithial  ������'S- rh..  Come to Gibsons Landing for a  Singers, the choir of Gibsons  Uniied Church, Ihe Harmony  Singers, Gibsons Community  Singers and Lyn Vernon's  choirs.  Of the four soloists soprano  Arlene Collins comes from  Granthams, alto Nancy McKay  from Pender Harbour, and  from Lyn's students in Smilhers  come tenor Doug Baylis and  bass Gerry Hamming.  In his masterful way Ken  Dalgleish has arranged the orchestral accompaniment for  Ihree synthesizers. Assisting him  in playing these instruments are  Sue Winters and Heather Lydel.  "We have been practising in  small local groups twice a week  since September," Dorothy  Cruice of Gibsons told us, "and  have come together for full  rehearsals just lately. We love  every minute. Lyn is an excellent and understanding  teacher."  Secondary students throughout the Sunshine Coast have  been invited free of charge to attend the dress rehearsal at  Chatelech, Wednesday, December 14 al 7 pm.  TURKEY SHOOT  If you like target shooting or  would like to try your hand,  come lo the indoor range of the  Gibsons Wildlife Club any time  between 10 am and 3 pm, Sunday December 18.  The targets used give the  sharpshooter no advantage over  ihe beginner. The five inch  square targets are divided into  100 very small squares each  numbered for scoring purposes.  A shot that cuts the cross  lines of four of the little  squares, surely a lucky one, nets  Ihe highest possible score for  one shot. Now no sharpshooter  we are told by Karl Haerthe, the  club member in charge of Ihe  shoot, can pick oul that spot  with the unaided eye al 20 to 25  yards range.  Bring ihe family for an hour  or two of fun and prizes. Free  hot dogs and coffee.  And a good time, too, for  prospective members to see the  nearly   completed   outdoor  range.

SC Brewer's pointed oul ihey  already operate a wine, cider  and cooler store where they also  sell Iheir Orca Beer which the  brewery makes. The Lighthouse  Pub is nol far from Ihe location  of Iheir slore.  Bul council members insisted  the referral only asked if Ihe  zoning in the area would accommodate the new store proposed by the Lighthouse Pub.  Alderman Joyce Kolibas continued to disagree with other  council members.

A busy schedule  by Larry Grafton  For those of you who have so  faithfully turned out each  Thursday morning for crafts,  you have earned a brief holiday.  The next regular session will  take place on January 2 at 10  am.  At that time, since the holiday season will be a distant  memory, hopefully the regular  group will be back in full swing  in preparation for our Spring  Tea and Sale which takes place  in our hall on March 18 at 1:30  pm.  For the whist and cribbage  players, our final games will  take place on December 20. The  Saturday afternoon bridge  players and their spouses are  cordially invited to attend at  that time, to enjoy a little windup tea and sandwich which is  planned.  The first cribbage and whist  get-together will be on January  3 at 1:30 pm for 1989.  All those of the three groups  wishing to attend this finale  should phone Beryl Butler at  885-3793 in order that adequate  catering arrangements may be  made for the afternoon.  With regard to the Monday/Wednesday Seniors Exercise Class, December 14 will be  the final for 1988 with startup  scheduled for January 4.  The Aggravation Group will  cease being aggravated on  December 13 and will be able to  look forward to resuming the  'needling' process on January  10.  Bridge players on Saturdays  have already had their windup  and will resume play on January  7.  Our oil painting artists will  complete their 1988 sessions on  December 14. Tentative startup  date is January 4.  As mentioned in a previous  column, Social Bingo is discontinued for December and will  resume on January 12.  At press time there has been  no definite word from our  carpet bowlers or the country  stars.

December 12,1988  SD#46  Clayton returns as chairman  ���j��rwtf'^H$eV<r  by Rose Nicholson  Maureen Clayton returns as  chairman of School District 46  and Carol Adams is the new  vice-chairman.  At the December 6 inaugural  meeting for the new season,  Trustees Maureen Clayton, Al  Lloyd and Lenora Joe were  sworn in by District Superintendent Clifford Smith. Clayton  and Lloyd were returned by acclamation.  Chairman Clayton congratulated new trustee Joe on being  elected 'fair and square' by a  landslide majority.  The meeting was held at  Elphinstone High School and  Principal Martyn Wilson outlined for the board the school's  goals.  He said the staff of the school  saw the prime need of the  students to be the development  of confidence and good judgment .  Special programs are being  developed to bring this about.  Teachers Peter MacDonald and  Ian Thompson are training  students as Peer Counsellors  and Peer Tutors.  Under these programs, senior  students work with juniors,  helping with studies and personal problems.  Teachers Robin Hethey outlined a social studies program  that makes it possible to get out  of Gibsons and see the world.  Recent trips have taken students  to the Terry Fox Centre in Ottawa and the ICBC Counterattack Conference in Vancouver.  Bev Burgoyne, head of the  French department, reported  that a new program, French  12A, has enabled many Elphinstone graduates to enter second  year French when they go to  university.  Burgoyne also outlined for  the board the senior challenge  program, whereby students  choose their own study projects  and are responsible for developing their own methods of study.  Other programs at the school  address all aspects of Special  Needs students, from the  severely handicapped to the  gifted.  Marsh action taken  by Penny Fuller  Newly elected Sechelt Mayor  Tom Meredith has been quick  in addressing some of the problems of the Sechelt Marsh.  Some confusion existed over the  purchasing of Lot 48 to add to  the marsh area.  Last week, Meredith told  council he talked to members of  the executive of the  Nature  Trust of BC, which owns title to  the marsh. They agreed, he  said, to receive and hold any  money donated by the public  for the purpose of purchasing  the lot.  When enough money is raised, tax deductible receipts will  be issued. The funds will be  matched by Sechelt Municipal  District up to a maximum of  $20,000.  The lot will be purchased and  registered with joint title being  held by the Municipal District  and the Nature Trust.  If enough money is not raised, the Nature Trust will return  the donations that have been  received to the individuals.  Council approved the plan in  principle. To date, approximately $3,000 has been raised  for the project.  #  "YOUR FAMILY  FOOD STORE"  OPEN FRIDAY UNTIL 9 P.M.  SUNDAY  10 A.M.-5 P.M.

Gibsons lights  Concern about the condition of the downtown Gibsons  Christmas lighting was expressed by Mayor Diane Strom during the December 6 meeting of town council.  "1 would rather see no lights at all, than see them as they  are now with ail the burnt out lights," said Mayor Strom.  "At presenl the town pays for the electricity. I discussed it  last night with the chamber of commerce. Perhaps we should  consider a $5 charge on business licences to cover the costs of  Christmas tree lights, and that they be put up by our public  works department which would see that they replace the  lights."  "The lights are very expensive, $2.19 each wholesale. They  aren't cheap," said the mayor.  Alderman Ken Collins, a commerce chamber member, said  in past years nobody in the chamber has been particularly  responsible for looking after the lights. It just happened informally. It's been agreed ihis year the directors would take  the responsibility, he said.  nnang  ccnss,  SOUTH PENDER HARBOUR  WATERWORKS DISTRICT  As a result ol recent improvements to the water system,  the trustees of the District have decided to lift the  moratorium on property subdivision within the District  for a trial period.

"We've hammered pretty  hard on the fish farmers today  while what ihe pulp mills are  doing is 1000 times worse. 1  don't ihink we should sit silent  on Ihis," he said.  Direclor Jim Gurney said  he's interested in the question of  permanent damage to the local  marine resources.  "Those areas may never open  again," he said.  Director Stan Dixon suggested the board should get all  the information on the matter  that is available from the provincial environment ministry.  "I want to know to what extent can this jurisdiction claim  compensation for damage and  for cost of reclamation of  marine areas affected. It seems  to me this level of government  should ask for some form of  compensation," said Wilson.

Fees will  Drought the cause of tree deaths  The large number of dead  and dying young trees evident in  the forests of ihe Sunshine  Coasl arc due lo Ihe prolonged  drought of 1985/87. The deaths  aren'l due lo acid rain, says  Barry Custance of Sechell,  operalions manager of the B.C.  Sunshine Coast Forest District.  Alarm over the large number  of iree dealhs and the acid rain  possibility were raised al an October 23 meeling of the Sunshine Coasl Forestry Advisory  Committee by local forestry  worker, Kevin Gibson.  In a letter to the committee,  Forestry Manager Custance  cites a federal .governmenl  forestry service report which  establishes drought as the tree  death cause. The federal agency  has whai is called the Acid Rain  National Early Warning System  (ARNEWS) with monitoring  forest plots across British Columbia and all of Canada.  There are lest plots at Porl  Mellon and Powell River.  "If acid rain should ever occur in British Columbia it would  be readily detected. To date acid  rain pollutants remain miniscule  and certainly are not of such  concentrations as to affect  forest    growth."  "The dead and dying young  irees, which phenomenon is  highly visible along the Sunshine Coasl, lying within the  Douglas Fir diybell /one, arc  truly the result of the prolonged  drought of 1985/87. Such off-  site species were jusi not able to  survive drought.  "Had pollution been the  cause,  olher  trees and  plant  species would also have been  adversely affected, the issue is  now listed as a high district  priority for furiher research and  inlormalion dissemination to  ihe public," writes the local  forestry official,  The reporl from the Canadian Forestry Service on the  question of acid rain damage  possibilities in Sunshine Coasl  foresls is, in part, as follows:  "The mortality and lop-kill  of individual and small groups  of immature and semi-mature  Western Hemlock, Western  Red Cedar and Grand Fir thai I  observed on Ihe Sunshine Coast  ihis summer was attributed io  drought, not pollution. This  same phenomenon was also  recorded along the cast coast of  Vancouver Island and the Gulf  Islands.  "Prolonged summer droughts during 1985/87 have  created water shortages. The  more drought resislciil species  such as Douglas Fir, Arbutus  and Shore Pine were nol af-  fccled.  "Root rol fungi were not evident in any of ihe trees examin  ed. The majorily of Grand Fir  and Western Red Cedar surveyed were attacked by the  secondary bark beetles, Ecoly-  lus ventralis and Phloeosinus  sequoias, respectively. Bolh  species commonly attack recently dead or severely stressed  trees.1  also be payable al ihe lime of  delivers' instead of being billed  later.  The SCRD directors also  soled to invoice the provincial  governmenl for large dumping  fee losses due to bankruptcies ol  companies serving an industry  operating on provincial water  leases.  SCRD Director Jim Gurney  said ihe province should be  responsible for such losses. The  disirici government has no  power lo collect such losses  through the levying of laxes on  ihe waler leases as ii does in the  case of other garbage collected  from private properties, he said.  The eommitlee also agreed  that companies wishing to use  the district's 'mon' dumping  service and to be billed later  would have lo deposit a bond in  advance. This bond would have  io be equivalent to the average  of three months' disposal of  lish waste.  These companies will be billed monthly. Payment will be  due monthly irrespective of the  bond deposit.

Berisch, who looks much younger  than his 50 years, is a heavy-sel  man with a gruff voice and a  flaltened, scowling face, ugly  enough to frighten children.  As if to compensate for his  unlovely appearance, Bertsch  dresses like a duke. He owns 50  custom-made suits and a fur-  collared topcoat with Ihree  special pockets for his guns.  A solid-gold loolhpick  depends like a costly cigarette  from his thick-lipped moulh.  Bertsch is no beauty bin there is  an air of solid assurance aboul  him. He is obviously a man who  will stand up well in Ihe crunch.  Berlsch is a long lime peleman  of the 'punch and rip' school.  He has cracked safes wiih  everything but a pickaxe.  Despile his lack of couth, Joe  Berisch is nobody's fool. He  has important connections and  is the black sheep brolher of  Barney Berisch, a powerful  Chicago politician.  Joe likes the sound of Herb's  scientific approach and says as  much. Flattered, Herb engages  him on the spot.  Having gained acceptance,  Bertsch loses no time in recommending his friend, Joe 'True'  Blue. Blue, who also hails from  Chicago, is a man of many  aliases. He is known in various  quarters as Joe Blan, Kid Norton, Joe Cullen and Dan Cameron.  Unlike his flashy associates,  Blue is a nondescript man given  lo quiet speech and conservative  dress. The looks are deceptive.  Blue is a career criminal who  has served an impressive apprenticeship with one of the  larger Easiside mobs.  His credentials are almost too  impressive and Herb is apprehensive aboul Blue's  Chicago connections. He warns  no involvement with rival  gangs. Bin he finds something  ralher professional in Blue's  manner and decides to give him  a chance.  Herb has stronger misgivings  aboul Lew Harris, who prefers  the name of Little Benny. Little  Benny is a graduate of Ihe  Chicago slums and has recently  taken French leave from a  counly slammer in Maryland.  As his name suggests, he is a  small man with a moustache  and a pinched, sly face.  Little Benny has worked  mostly as a lone wolf or single-  O thief but now, convinced that  there is slrenglh in numbers, he  is anxious io lie up wiih a gang.  There is a nervous Ivvitchiness to  Lillle Benny lhal gives Herb ihe  impression lhal he mighl be  trigger happy, but he pleads his  case in such a surprisingly ar-  liculalc manner lhal Herb  agrees to give him a iryoui loo.  The gang is furiher augmented by Jack Peer and Big Harry  Woods, bolh of Ihem huge men  whose combined weight totals  well over 500 pounds. Jack Peer  is a rumpled, ill-spoken man,  totally devoid of any social  graces.  He carries a constant cud of  chewing tobacco in his lower lip  and ads more like a siablehand  lhan an experienced peleman.  Bin Peer is a seasoned criminal  with important connections in  Toledo and olher cities.  Big Harry is an Oklahoma  Indian, a good deal longer on  muscle lhan brains. He purports  to be a personal friend of Will  Rogers and claims lhal ihey arc  bolh descended from the same  iri be.  Herb doubts this but he likes  the big, slow-talking man. He  will certainly come in useful for  moving safes and strongarming  watchmen.  Wiih Ihe addilion of ihese  new members Herb finds himself ihe leader of a nine man aggregation, well capable of taking on any sort of safe job. He  is determined thai theirs will be  a class organization in every  way, and ihe ground rules of  whal will one day be known as  the Wilson gang are firmly  established. It is vital that they  never be recognized.  To be continued...

Often, sadly, one of December's disasters is the death of expensive pot plants. Such plants  include Azaleas, Poinsettias,  Cyclamen, Christmas Cactus to  name a few.  They are ir fact, extremely  fit, but the change from nursery  greenhouse conditions to those  of the home, particularly at  Christmas time, is often too  much for them. In all the excitement of celebration, watering  can be overlooked, and daily  watering is necessary.  Draughts are a further  menace, as doors constantly  open wiih the arrival of guests  and family. This gives plants a  hard time of it.  Remember to feed the birds,  especially if weather conditions  are around freezing.

Christmas  greetings to one and all.  by John Burnside  "Oh," said one of Don's  more discreet and refined  neighbours, "why do you write  about such things?"  "I just write about life as I  have lived it," says Don. And  so he does.  Like many another young  Englishman born in the early  years of this century, Don  found thai his rambunctious  and free-spirited nature made it  impossible for him to fulfil any  of the destinies lhat a respectable post-Victorian family felt  suitable for him. Like many  another he took himself off early to try his luck and his wings  in the colonies.  His family, though respectable, was not wealthy and Don  was no remittance man. In  Canada he made his way by the  sweat of his brow.  He criss-crossed the continent  by train. Occasionally he had  the fare; more often he rode the  rods or bunked down in a box  car.  From New Brunswick to  British Columbia he found  work in logging camps and on  farms. Briefly he was a  favoured employee in a  millionaire's garden on the west  end of Montreal Island; he was  New  Medical  Officer  The Sunshine Coast has a  new permanent medical health  officer, Dr. Ray Marsh. He's  now in the process of moving  from Victoria to the Gibsons  area to be near the main office  of the Coast/Garibaldi Health  Unit on South Fletcher.  Dr. Marsh was the third successive acting MHO at the  Health Unit, but he's decided to  stay.  For 13 years, Dr. Marsh was  in general practice at Victoria.  There he was an active staff  member at Royal Jubilee Hospital and preceptor for  pediatrics.  Born in Toronto, he was raised in New Zealand and Australia, as well as in Canada. His  medical training was in New  Zealand and Canada.  Leaving general practice, he  was a field medical officer for  the federal governmenl. Then  he undertook further medical  training, earning his Masters  Degree in Health Sciences at the  University of British Columbia.  He's worked with the provincial health ministry since 1985.  He's been covering this area's  health unit as medical health officer in an acting capacity since  April, commuting on weekends  from his Victoria home.  The Coast/Garibaldi Health  Unit has sub-offices in Pemberton, Whistler, Squamish, Sechelt and Powell River. The  unit's boundaries are the same  as for the three school districts  in the Sunshine Coast, Powell  River and Squamish/Whistler  areas.  Married, he has one preschool child. During his career  he served for a time as a ship's  doctor.  "I've always been uncomfortable living away from the sea  and I'm happy to get back," he  told the Coast News.  given refuge and a home in  historic Glengarry County in  Ontario; for a season or two he  was the only English-speaking  member of a group of lumberjacks in Weslern Quebec.  Driven always by ihe untamed restlessness which had  brought him to the colonies in  the first place, his career is a  picaresque novel through which  he moves with ihe unabashed  appetite for life one associates  with such heroes of literature as  Tom Jones.  Withoul regret and with  much rollicking good humour,  Don gives us a lour of the  brothels, bars, and bootlegging  joints of the Canada of half a  century ago.  When war came the author,  though old enough lo be excused, enlisted and served overseas  as surely one of the more colourful cooks in the Canadian  Army.  This is no mindless bacchanal. Don over the years has  become a man of wide reading  and his story is punctuated with  observations as acute as they are  provocative.  It is not the Canada of the  history textbooks we find here.  It is the Canada of the common  man. ll is also a Canada which  is portrayed for us by a man  who loves words and who uses  ihem with economy and clarity.  These glimpses of 'life as it  was lived' in the earlier years of  ihis century are lit throughout  by the pugnacious charm of the  narrator. They constitute an  entertaining and informative  journey across this country as it  struggled to come of age.  Your guide to  the finest in  area dining  A listing of  restaurants  and pubs  Itmt o(  NICHT ON THI TOWN  I'd agreed to provide the food for our friendly get-  together, but as my hectic day proceeded, it was evident I  would have no time to cook.  But the Chicken Shack take out service came to my  rescue! A quick phone call and half an hour later I picked  up the delicious smelling order of deep fried chicken and  French fried potatoes with side orders of homemade cole  slaw.  I tried to pretend thai I'd done it myself, and I almost  pulled it off, because everything was as good as if I had  spent hours slaving over a hot stove. The chicken was crisp  on the outside and succulent on the inside. The French  fries were 'real', not the frozen tasteless type quickly zapped in a microwave.  Other choices might have been hamburgers or a variety  of pizzas. For entertainment we could have had our choice  of videos, and it all would have been delivered right to the  door if we had been within 5 miles of downtown Sechelt.  1 can see that in the coming busy pre-Christmas days I'll  be doing this again. Maybe next time someone might  believe that I'm efficient enough to work and cook too!  But 1 doubt it. My friends lead busy lives too. I'm sure  they also appreciate the luxury of providing a good meal  that doesn't take hours of precious time to prepare.

More and more  persons with either a shorl lerm  or a long lerm illness or disability are asking for meals lo be  delivered lo them al home.  Volunleers are needed to  deliver the meals and lo visit for  a few minutes, according to Ihe  Sunshine Coast Home Support  Sociely.  Volunleers are an essenlial  pari of this program. Withoul  ihem, Ihe program would nol  exist.  Some of the present volunteers have been wilh the program a number of years. Why  do they stay? Mostly, il's  because of Ihe people they've  mel along Ihe way, seniors who  live alone in isolated situations  who so look forward lo Ihe arrival of their friend wiih the hot  meal, says a spokesperson.  The time logelher may be only five or 10 minutes, il's ihe  quality, noi the quantity thai  counts. Olher times the  volunteer may meel someone  who is convalescing following  an accident or illness.  In ihe few minuies of ihe  visit, the volunleer offers encouragement and shows an interest in the person's recovery.  Bul wail! This is not a one  way slreel.

The participants included  members of various business  sectors, politicians and entrepreneurs.  The retreat was called Sunshine Coast 2000.  The concept originated with  the Economic Developmeni  Commission (EDC), lo facilitate the exchange of ideas and  feelings concerning the future ol  the Sunshine Coast by the year  2000.  In a letter ol invitation to participants, EDC chairman,  Maurice Egan, pointed oul lhal  it was recognized thai there are  significant dynamics lhat will  profoundly affect our life,  lifestyle and livelihood. These  dynamics include, among  others, influences from Ihe proximity and growih of ihe lower  Vancouver Mainland, Ihe  phenomenal growth of the  aquaculture indusiry (a relatively unknown industry 10 years  ago) governmenl regionaliza-  lion, free trade with the U.S.,  the surge of self employment  Ihrough entrepreneurism, to  name but a few.  The staled objectives of Ihe  retreal were:  1. lo identify ihe major factors thai will influence growth  and change on the Sunshine  Coast;  2. lo determine the nature,  direction and implication of  future change; and  3. to formulate plans of aclion lo assure wise managemeni  of such change.  Throughout Wednesday evening and Thursday, the individuals met in large and small  groups and brain-stormed,  compiling lists of such things as  major influences on the economic future of the Sunshine  Coasl, iheir possible impacts,  and suggestions for managing  ihese changes.  Those attending also looked  at their visions for the future of  this area. Those lhal were  broughl back lo the meeting of  the group as a whole, con-  sislently reflected a desire to  preserve, lo one extent or  another, the unique lifestyle  that most have found on ihe  Sunshine Coasl.  Some looked on ihe possibility of becoming a bedroom community of Vancouver with  trepidation, others welcomed it.  Bul ihere seemed to be liltle  doubl in each person's mind  that the continued population  growih in the Lower Mainland  is going lo have a profound effect on the future of ihis area.  There was also a general consistency in the desire to cultivate  environmentally clean industry,  but in clearly defined areas. The  need for posl-secondary education facilities was anolher issue  raised consistently throughout  the portion of the discussions  which focused on hopes for the  future,  At Harmony Hall  by Frankie Christophersen  The December meeling of  OAPO 38 was held December 5  at Harmony Hall with 73 present. New members Shirley and  Jack Richardson were welcomed, along wilh John and Irma  Hoaih who have returned io ihe  Sunshine Coasl for the winler  from Saskatchewan.

By Ihe end of the second day,  much of the general groundwork had been done, and  Maurice Egan asked people lo  break into smaller groups and  come up wilh some concrele  suggestions for action.  When the lime came for sharing thoughts on aclions to be  taken one issue was repeated by  each group - the need for the  four government bodies on the  Sunshine Coasl (Gibsons,  Sechelt, Ihe regional district and  the Sechell Indian Government  District) to work co-operatively  toward a shared vision.  Only one real commitment to  action was made by the end of  the relreat. All the participants  fell ihe need lo continue  meeling, expand the number of  participants slightly, and continue to explore the potential  and problems facing the Sunshine Coasl as ii prepares lo  enter the 21st century.  ^//al'Slal*  WLW&SPECIALl  YY The State-of-the-Art  in sport fishing and boating Sonar  Lowrance  X-30  Liquid crystal  allows choice of automatic  or manual selection  More power  Sale      W I 9  Other models available..,X4  X40  X50  HEGREAT SAVINGS^  Lorad VHF Marine  hand-held radio  Model XR100  Reg. 499.00 !

President Wells extended a  warm welcome to all those participating in the adult day care  program at the Kirkland Centre, including Ihe volunteers and  special friends, the staff and  special guests.  "The program at Kirkland  Cenlre exists through the health  minsitry's long lerm day care  program. Withoul the ministry  there would be no program," he  said.  "In this area, it is through the  efforts of the long lerm day care  staff at the Coasl/Garibaldi  Health Unil lhal we are able to  offer Ihe adull day care program, as well as other home  support services."  "As many of you know, the  society offers five programs in  this community:  "Home Support - we call Ihe  workers home support workers,  many of you know them as  homemakers;  "Respite Program; the Adull  Day Care Program at Kirkland  Cenlre; the Meals on Wheels  Program; and the Hospice Program."  "This has been a special year  for us ai the society. It might be  called 'The Year of the House'  ", said the society president.  "Through the efforts of the  Davis Bay/Wilson Creek  Association, the ministry of  lands and forests, the Corpora-  lion of the District of Sechelt,  and many others, we were given  the use of the house known as  Kirkland Centre. We are proud  of Ihe house and feel privileged  we can offer the adull day care  program io the residents of the  Sunshine Coast."  "As with all our programs  ihe main intent is io empower  individuals and families io participate as fully as possible in  the decisions and activities of  daily living. As well as this being  a pre-Christmas celebration, 1  suggest that this also be a  celebration of the program at  Kirkland Centre, now and in the  future," said Wells.  Adult day care is a community program for elderly or disabled adults. A professional staff  offers encouragement, instruction, and support to help persons participate as fully as  possible in the decisions and activities of daily living.  The program provides a  nutritious daily meal and  snacks, opportunities to  socialize, health maintenance,  basic living skills, exercises,  games, crafts, outings, respite  care.  The goals of the program are;  to assist participants maintain  as much independence as possible within the limitations  associated with age and physical  or mental impairment; to provide opportunities for interaction with others; to stimulate  and maintain a positive  outlook; to offer family  members time free from care  commitments.  Eligibility to attend the program at Kirkland Centre is  determined by the health  ministry's long term care program. Referrals can be made by  family, friends, doctors,  neighbours and by the individuals themselves.

WHO PAYS MORE?  Vehicle owners who  had one at-fault claim  in 1988 will see their  Autoplan premium  increase by 63% or  more. An owner with  two at-fault claims will  pay approximately  116% more.  The premium for  Basic Third Party  1 Legal Liability, the  $200,000 compulsory  I coverage, is increased  11%. Collision premi-  I urns are unchanged  and premiums for  . Comprehensive cover-  I age are only slightly  increased. Some vehicle  | owners will even see a  decrease in Collision or  Comprehensive premiums due to the 'aging'  of nearly 40% of the  vehicles in B.C.  DRIVER POINT  PREMIUMS  In 1989, Driver Point  Premiums will be  increased by about 20%.  Motorists billed in 1989  for accumulating five  points or more against  their driver's licences  must pay the 1989  rates.

One side or the olher prevails,  the other left to cope with Ihe  decision.  In the case of SCGCC requesting the piece of Cliff  Gilker Park, I don'l see why Ihe  scope of the plan can'l have a  win-win situation as a criteria  for approval.  The people who wish to defend the park are after one  thing; preservation of a  wilderness environment.  The golf course is after one  Ihing; full fledged facilities.  Why is it so difficult to  resolve bolh wishes?  Even if the park, which i  zoned recreational use, cannol  maintain it's wilderness aire,  ihere would be a significant  enhancement to a more general  park area.  The golf course expansion  holds many community bene-  fils. It has an exceptional junior  program with a tremendous  junior following.  t* well, it is a refuge for the  retired who are such positive  contributors to our economies  and communities.  There are literacy over 600  playing members on the Sunshine Coast with over 50,000  rounds played by members and  non-members. This is no simple  small interest group.  Their investment in Ihe communily supplier employment  and most importantly, tremendous tourist appeal.  An 18 hole course would  reinforce the coast's commitment to retirees, as well as provide our youths with a legitimate opportunity in a structured, responsible environment.  It would also allow for major  tournaments which benefit the  coast's service industry, as well  as entice golfing tourists who  help buoy the entire coastal  economy.  The surrounding park would  become more open, accessible  and enjoyable for family and  group activities. The coasl sorely lacks a genuine recreational  park area with grass, benches,  fields, streams, trees and  animals.  It seems to me, a parcel of  land   designated   recreational  should be used as broadly as  possible. If a 'wilderness' area is  deemed as so important as to  quash a truly win-win situation,  there should be a task force  look into the potential of a provincial park area established  within our community's access.  This would cost a minor sum  as compared to a white elephant  in a new community golf  course.  Wake up Sunshine Coasters,  there is a genuine opportunity  for a tremendous recreational  site of which everyone can  benefit. Let's put pressure on  organizers on both sides to address the legitimate concerns of  both sides, then work to  enhance the community, rather  than boil it in differences.  Gordon Clayton  Making a plea for shopping mothers  OFF  WITH THIS ADD  oiler good 'til Christmas or unl  ^31 Norlh Rd.. Gibsons  Sales & Service  Editor:  I feel 1 must respond lo Jean  Robinson's commenls on  parenting in Ihe Davis Bay  News and Views section of the  December 5 issue. Her commenls made me once again  'dream the impossible dream'  of retailers and those of us wilh  small children co-existing  peacefully.  Although retail stores exercise their  'rights*  by placing  Wk ,-^SaL  I CHRISTMAS SPECIALS  from South Coast Supply  STANFIELD  $1999  $1899  $3579  Tops  Bottoms  Piece  Red Strap  JEANS  $2995  25% off  Jepson Power Tools  templing treats and toys on low  shelves and slacking precariously high displays al aisle corners,  how about listening to us  mothers who must shop with  our children.  Since women with families  make up a great deal of the  money retailers derive, shop  owners must be asked to finally  recognize the fact it is impossible in most stores on the Sunshine Coast to even enter a store  with a stroller. This is due to the  terribly narrow aisles and stacked displays, leaving little room  for even two individuals to pass,  let alone us mothers who must  bring an average size stroller to  restrain our child.  The stores add to the problem  by persisting to display candies,  toys and tempting treats on low  shelves near checkout counters.  This makes it difficult, if not  impossible for even the most  well behaved child not to have a  look, or a grab.  I have even seen a local  children's shop with rows of  low shelves of toys with a large  sign displayed stating children  may not touch the toys.  These problems ought not to  be tolerated by the mothers of  the Sunshine Coast. 1, as a  mother, recognize the rights of  those shopping around me, but  the reality of the situation is it  takes tolerance from all of us  where children are concerned.  They, the children of our nation, are beautiful people who  deserve to be treated with caring  and respect as well as restraint  and discipline. By asking our  retailers to help make their  stores accessible for us shopping  with children, shopping can be a  pleasurable experience for all of  us.

The Teen Centre at the Curling Club on Sea Cavalcade  weekend was organized and  controlled by parents. 1 was a  member of the Sea Cavalcade  Committee and in charge of the  Teen Centre.  We were approached by the  Youth Council requesting their  participation in the centre  because they wanled to make  some money. We gave them the  responsibility of the concessions  and any profits they made were  strictly theirs, with no percentage going to the Sea Cavalcade  as a whole.  The centre and in particular,  the dance, was strictly run by  the parents in this community. I  do not wish to lake credit away  from this group of teens as 1 admire them very much for what  they are trying to accomplish,  but I do wish to get the record  straight and give credit where it  is due.  Many parents in this area  gave up their entire weekend  during Sea Cavalcade and put in  long hours to make the Teen  Centre and especially the dance,  a success.  I would appreciate seeing a  correction made to this story  and   giving   the   parents   the  thanks they so well deserve.

Mr. Martin Wilson  Administrative Officer  Elphinstone Secondary School  Gibsons, B.C.  Last evening I attended a  meeting at your high school at  the invitation of the graduating  class president, Miss Julie  Reeves. The meeting was largely  attended by parents and  students of this year's  graduating class. The purpose  of this gathering was to discuss  and decide whether the  graduating party would be a  'dry' or a 'wet' one. I left prior  to the actual parental vote but I  understand  that  the decision  was to have a 'dry' graduation  for the second year in a row.  One student speaker made a  very good point during the  discussions which took place.  Last year's graduating class set  a precedent with their 'dry'  grad. This year's graduating  class will start a tradition.  Please convey my thanks to  your graduating class for inviting me to this meeting and  further convey my support and  congratulations to the students  and parents for a most responsible decision. I am sure your  'tradition' will prove to be a  hallmark for other schools in  this province.  W.E. Hill, Sargeant  Gibsons Detachment  Sechelt praised  TOURIST AND RECREATION GUIDE  Meet The Artist  ROBERT SHIOZAKI  Cowrie 5l��� Sechelt      885-7606  Editor:  Nearly a month has passed  since my first visit to Sechelt  and I would like to share an impression or two with you.  At a three day workshop  sponsored by Apple Canada in  the Rockwood Lodge I worked  in a very pleasant environment.  Your town is worthy of its  growing popularity.  The physical space in the new  section of the lodge is just the  thing for working conferences  spanning several days.  Everything wenl well and word  of our good experience will be  passed on to our colleagues.  I would hope that the Sunshine Coast will continue to  benefit from the developing  status of the B.C. coast as a  world class vacation area.  My final comment relates to  the quality of the cuisine offered  by the Cafe Pierrot. Portions  were reasonable, the flavour  was great and the presentation  (a point often neglected today)  enhanced the whole experience.  Thank you to all concerned  with making this event possible.

L  A plea for park preservation  Editor:  When one hears about the  destruction of the rain forests in  Brazil, an act that will change  the weather patterns of both  South and North America, and  may even shorten man's lifespan on this plant, the acid rain  that is already killing the trees  and lakes in Eastern Canada,  the pollution of our fishing and  coastal waters by the ever larger  mills that frequent our  shoreline, the garbage dumping  into our harbours that has  already closed some of our  beaches   for  swimming,   one  wonders just where il will all  end and realizes that only caring  individuals can put an end to all  of it by reminding our elected  officials that it is their duty to  take the action that will stop the  killing of nature's few remaining reserves.  For the past few years I have  tried to escape some of these  destructive tragedies and seek  the ever dimishing areas away  from the smoke and the carbon  dioxide fumes of the ever increasing traffic that fills our  cities and highways.  One of the well preserved and  enjoyable spots  that  I  have  found is Ihe Gilker Park on the  Sunshine Coast. I mention Ihis  particular beauty spot, because  during my lasl visit there I was  informed tNt one-third of this  park is about lo be destroyed in  order lo enlarge an existing golf  course, a devastating change  from a public park presently enjoyed by families who care for  nature to a privale club.  Why is ii ihai in this so-called  democracy such decisions are  never made by the majority but  ralher by a few who are only  concerned with their own lives.  Earl K. Wt '  New Westminster. Bx  Thoughts on theatre project  Editor:  The spirited and lengthy (52  column inches) defense of the  theatre project by Fran Burnside gives one the impression  lhat its supporters are 'people of  vision and imagination...' while  Ms Dixon (and others who may  have some reservations) are  short-sighted or unimaginative.  While few would argue  against legitimate theatre coming to the Sunshine Coast,  residents are entitled to hold  reservations and many do.  Public money is to be used to  build the theatre which will be  dedicated lo that use alone.  It is to be built on a site zoned  administrative. Once built it will  lock up a prime site, precluding  council from any other plans.  Mrs. Burnside notes that  "Buchan has not received a  single proposal or application  for any other use." But this ap-  Province of British Columbia  Ministry of Transportation & Highways  Sunshine Coast District  IMPORTANT  NOTICE  Please take notice of the recently erected  SPEED ZONE CHANGES  at the following locations:  1.

Warrington  Liistrlct Highways Manager  Sunshine Coast District  IMPORTANT  NOTICE  m  FOR SEAFOOD  HARVESTING  DIVERS.  As a result of the serious accidents which have  happened to inexperienced divers in the seafood  diving industry, the Workers' Compensation Board has  established a requirement for a seafood harvesting  diving certificate. This certificate must be obtained  by all divers in the seafood harvesting industry.  The certificate can be obtained at WCB Offices in  the coastal region, and is awarded to applicants who  have a current medical certification, proof of attendance at a training course, or experience in the fishery  and who successfully complete an examination to be  written at the WCB office. This examination will be  based on Section 11 of the WCB's Industrial Health  & Safety Regulations, Underwater Diving, and the  N.O.A.A. Diving Manual or equivalent.  Further information can be obtained by  contacting:  Vancouver Island Regional Manager  WCB Field Services  320 Cook Street  Victoria, B.C.  Phone Toll free 1.800-663-345.3  (effective December 1st)  ^)Pm  WORKERS'  COMPENSATION  BOARDSffiSS  proach suggests abdication of  the responsibility for town planning.  The supporters argue persuasively for the many benefits  which could accrue to Gibsons  with a successful theatre. But  therein lies the difference of opinion.  What about the liabilities if  the theatre is less than successful?  Cultural ventures (remember  the Vancouver Symphony) have  a history of being unable to sustain themselves without government support. It is this possibility that raises the concerns.  The spectre of unsold seats  worries the very people who will  be expected to pick up the tab  for any operating deficits with  tax dollars. The thought of a  dark theatre sitting unused on a  prime site and location is intolerable.  The probable success or  failure of the theatre is  debatable and cannol be guaranteed by either supporters or  detractors. Whai is needed lo  resolve ihe issue is a pilol project or trial run to provide more  reliable information.  Why not tesl the premises for  the proposal by operating a trial  thealre for a season in reined  facilities. Give the Sunshine  Coasl arid Vancouverites a sample of whal can be expected.  Al ihe same lime it will provide information about public  support for thealre, lest  subscriber potential and  measure costs and revenue lo  better predict success or failure.  'Pilot theatre' would  minimize the risks and could  win the support of even the  mosl fervent skeptics.  Norman Corbet!  Players clarify  Editor:  In response to a letter  published in The Press from  MX. Dixon we, the executive of  the Driftwood Players, would  like to clarify some points.  We would like the public to  be aware that we are the sole  producers of the Summer Play  Parade, a venture which we  have successfully undertaken  for the past four years.  This summer season has in  fact been successful enough for  us to hire a porfessional director  for some of our plays but the  public should know that the  low-key, low-budget summer  productions simply reflect the  lack of suitable auditorium  space in our community.  Driftwood productions are  made possible by a large corps  of dedicated volunteers and all  plays are chosen solely by Ihose  volunteers. We advertise upcoming productions and relevant auditions in local papers  and are always willing io accepl  the ideas of anyone interested  enough to participate.  Driftwood   Players   have  recently  become  a  registered  non-profit society. Anyone who  would like to become 'a cultural  taste-maker' is welcome to join  for a fee of $6 per year.

The arrival of the  fire engine complete with bell  ringing, gave this important exercise a great deal of authenticity. The firemen then gave our  students a most informative  demonstration and before long  the classroom was filled with  "stop, drop and roll", "get out  alive" and "885-5511", the  local fire emergency number.  It was an enjoyable learning  experience and most generous  of these gentlemen - Ron Davis, ���  Bob Stanhope, Bryan Carson,  Colin Philip and Gerry Shaefer  to spend their free time wiih us.
