 From Department of Indian Affairs  LEGISLATIVE LIBRARY  Parliament Buildings  VICTORIA, B.C.  V8V 1X4  82.1  Sechelt Indians seek freedom  ���i-  by John Burnside  In clear, strong language the Sechelt Indian Band  took its case for independence from the 'imprisonment' of the federal Indian Act before the Human  Rights Commission in Vancouver last Thursday.  Representatives of Ihe Sechelt Band argued that Indian bands have widely divergent needs and accordingly should be allowed to advance at their own  chosen pace. They pointed out to the Human Rights  Commission that their band had been al ihe forefront  of efforts to secure amendment of the 1951 Indian Act  for more than a decade but that all efforts had led to  frustration.  "We have committed no crimes," said the introduction to the Sechelt Indian brief. "Our one apparent offence is to be of indigenous origin in a country where native people are a small minority. For this  we have been imprisoned. Our jailers are the  bureaucrats of the Department of Indian Affairs. Our  cell is the Federal Indian Act, its bars created from the  legal interpretations of the Act's provisions by  Department of Justice lawyers. We have tried hard to  escape yet so many of these attempts have failed we  begin lo despair. How can we attain freedom in  Canada?"  Referring to the federal legislation as institutionalized racism, the representatives of the Sechelt  Indians pointed to Section 2 of the Canadian Human  Rights Act which says: "(a) every individual should  have an equal opportunity with other individuals to  make himself or herself the life that he or she is able  and wishes to have, consistent with his or her duties  and obligations as a member of society, without being  hindered in or prevented from doing so by  discriminatory practices based on race, national or  ethnic orgin..."  Under the heading What is it that we want? the  Sechelt Band argued in its brief: "Four years ago the  process of delegating authorities under the Indian Act  to our Band was completed. By common assent, completion of this process left us as legally advanced as  any Indian Band could be under present legislation.  But it is not enough. We remain constantly thwarted  in our aims and objectives by the inherent limitations  of the Indian Act."  As an example of the frustrations caused by the Indian Act, the brief pointed to the example of the  Sechelt Utility Corridor. Negotiations with provincial  authorities for the 'innovative and widely beneficial'  utility corridor which would encompass the hydro  line, a road, and sewer and water lines crossing the  narrow isthmus of the Sechelt Peninsula on Indian  land. "Three years after the negotiations the corridor  remains unachieved because Federal government  lawyers can find no means within the Indian Act to do  what everyone involved wants to do and has agreed to  do. Sad to say, this is a typical experience for Indian  people."  The decade-long struggle to have the Indian Act  amended saw the Sechelt Band in alliance with the  Musqueam and Squamish Bands meet with Ave successive Ministers of Indian Affairs and two Ministers  ot Justice; attend every conference and workshop  throughout Canada that was held to consider a new  Indian Act; maintain liaison with every Indian  organization involved in the revision process; observe  the Joint National Indian Brotherhood Cabinet Committee meeting of December 12, 1977, at which Mr.  MacEachen himself announced that certain amendments proposed by The Alliance had been formally  approved for enactment; write an open letter to the  Prime Minister advocating changing the Indian Act  Band's statement  The Sechelt Indian Band has always believed in  negotiation to achieve change ��� nol confrontation.  Our record speaks for itielf. Negotiation however,  requires ���incerity on both sides.  We are not ones for ait-ins or other acta of civil  disobedience, although we understand the f miration that cauiet these acta lo occur.  We are nol ailting for more money, more homing, more social assistance, more Hop gap employ-  mem programs.  We are asking for ihe right to prepare legislation  which will enable our community to achieve ils  place In the economic and social fabric of Canada,  while at the same lime maintaining our identity.  We are asking for the right lo local governmeni.  We are asking for the righl lo try to solve ihe problems facing our community at the people level.  We are saying to the Minister of Indian Affairs  and his bureaucrats you are doing it all wrong,  you may mean well but ihe processes you use are  doomed to fail.  We are saying to him and lo his department,  "Gel out of our lives, lei our people go".  Il is our hope thai by making thb presentation to  you/lhal somewhere someone will say, "Lei's give  Ihem the chance ��� lei's try il - it may just work!"  with copies being sent to every MP and every media  outlet in Canada.  "This entire effort," says the brief, "did nol resull  in the alteration of so much as a single comma of the  Indian Act. It was a complete failure, a waste of our  time and money."  Pointing out that despite professed strong commitments from successive ministers of the Department  of Indian Affairs, the Sechelt Band brief claimed that  all attempts to revise'the Indian Act were foundering  on the Federal government's insistence on rigidity of  options and majority acquiescence. The brief pointed  out that millions df dollars had been 'dissipated' on  the Indian Act revision process but each proposal  comes with built-it features and a consultative procedure that guarantee its eventual rejection 'but the  bureaucrats carry on anyway, abusing taxpayers'  dollars and trampling on our hopes'.  In a conclusion headed What to left for us to do? the  brief said: "Certain things have, to be attended to in-  the very near future: the legal status of our laajdt, local  government for the Reserve communiiy,'Sechelt Band  membership, our place in the Canadian tax system.  These vital issues cannot be put off indefinitely while  we await the Federal government's pleasure. Their  neglect is costing us too much, both in money and in  peoples' lives.  "We have no faith in the Federal government's professed intentions regarding the Indian Act. Our one  hope lies in the proposed Sechelt Indian Band Act,  legislation that, will encompass what we want to do  and will unshackle us accordingly. For we are ready to  control our own affairs completely. We want no further dealings with the millstone known as the Department of Indian Affairs. Let us go."  The Sunshine  Published at Gibsons, B.C    25' per copy on news stands  November 2,1931  Volume 35, Number 44  i  Meeting with Municipal Affairs  Changes in Pender?  T  by Fran Bourassa  On Ihe afternoon of Thursday, Oclober 29, Sechelt Elementary School was invaded by a legion of ghosts,  hobgoblins and witches. The spirits, however, turned out to be friendly and stayed to participate in the  festivities. A costume contest, apple bobbing and musical chairs were among the traditional Hallowe'en happenings and a good time was had by all. -M,,k H������""  Urea formaldehyde locally  How serious is the problem?  by Vene Parnell  There is growing concern in many Canadian communities over toxic formaldehyde gas being released  from foam insulation installed in older homes in recent years.  Remembrance Day  Postal Service  Postal facilities throughout British Columbia  and the Yukon will be closed on Wednesday,  November 11, in observation of the Remembrance Day holiday.  There will be no mail deliveries on this holiday. Special delivery service will be maintained  where provided.  Street letter box collections will be made on a  "Sunday Service" basis.  Full postal service will resume Thursday,  November 12.  UIC to meet  fishermen  The United Fishermen and Allied Workers  Union has organized a meeting with Unemployment Insurance Commission counsellors to  help fishermen with their U.l.C. applications.  UFAWC members are invited to attend the  meeting at the Senior Citizens Hall, Sechelt,  Tuesday, November 10 from 1 pm. to 3 pm. to  ensure accurate and speedy processing of  unemployment applications.  Complaints from homeowners of blistering paint  and wall coverings both inside and out, discoloration  and staining, corrosion of electrical boxes and wiring,  and even more serious, health complaints such as irritating odour, asthma type reactions and headaches  have been reported.  On the lower Sunshine Coast, from Port Mellon to  Egmont, no problems have been reported to date. Ron  McGinnis, of Suncoast Weather Products, the only  local insulation contractor who has been installing  urea-formaldehyde foam insulation (UFFI) said he  may have done a total of 30 buildings over the last  three years, and none since the ban on UFFI was imposed by the Ministry of Health and Welfare in  November of 1980.  "The public has over reacted to the problem and it  is being blown out of proportion. I have received calls  from some of my customers who have become alarmed by the publicity, asking me for more information,  but none here has any complaints that I know of and  there shouldn't be any, when the product is installed  properly," McGinnis told the Coast News.  McGinnis said that formaldehyde gas is also present  in cigarette smoke and in smoke from wood burning  fires. However, he admitted that many UFFI installers  were not policed properly and were inexperienced as  well as using inferior chemicals.  "The equipment used could have been made failsafe, through industry controls, but that was never  done and there were just too many chances for error.  McGinnis said he has been giving people the Ottawa  toll free number for the UFFI Information and Coordination Centre at 112-800-567-6870. In Powell  River, where over 200 older homes have been insulated with UFFI since 1977, some serious problems  have been reported to UFFI Action Group leader  Sylvia Patterson.  John Callan, executive director from the Ministry  ��r*��f*itiiciial.Affairs and DayarCortway, admini��*fc>  tipn Officer, were the guests of the recently struck  Pender Harbour Restructuring Investigation Committee at Madeira Park Legion, Monday, October 26  at a meeting attended by 35 people.  Callan was present to answer the questions of the  committee and to clarify the differences between incorporation and restructuring of the Pender Harbour  area.  Other questions at the three hour meeting included  what grants would be available under each option,  borrowing power, policing costs, service costs and  discussion on the county system.  "Incorporation," said Callan, "is creating a  municipality where no municipality existed before.  Restructuring is reforming the local government  structure."  He explained that with a straight forward incorporation there were no grants available; restructuring  on the other hand came with a program of funds and  provincial assistance.  For incorporation Callan said that the Ministry  recommended that the study committee should consist  of members from a wide range of community interest.  The committee would act as fact finders to discern  whether it was economically viable for the community  to exist on its own.  Callan said that Municipal Affairs would put a  member of its staff at the disposal of the committee to  assist in fact finding.  He told the committee that the first thing that needs  to be done is the drawing of the boundaries and assessing the area to find out what a mill would raise as well  as what costs would be involved, (clerk, works  superintendent, etc.).  When all the information is gathered by the committee, it would make recommendations, distribute  the facts and findings throughout the community and  then the Ministry would call for a referendum.  For restructuring, Callan explained that there must  be an existing government which wants to change.  "Pender Harbour could consider the possibility if the  three improvement districts were to restructure into a  district municipality," said Callan. (This area has a  population of 3,000.)  '"VI^MiUrttctwing cdtnmiQee should beappoint****! k ,,  by the minister as funds are made available because  trie responsibility switches from the provincial government tp the newly formed local governing body.  The funds would include a grant for the study committee (about $3,000); grants from three years of provincial taxes from the unincorporated areas; grants of  $150 per capita from formerly unincorporated areas  and $50 per head for incorporated areas; grants from  the Attorney General for five years towards policing  costs; assistance from the Ministry of Transportation  and Highways (similar to the incorporation  assistance); and assistance from the Ministry of  Municipal Affairs in the transition.

Secoi l Class Mail Registtalion No 4702  The time of decision  Mrs. Maryanne West has been  around the Suiuliine Coasl a long  lime and this week, on Page Fourteen, as she has many times before,  she puis her finger on an issue which  musi concern the vast majority of  the people who live on Ihe Sunshine  Coasl.  Maryanne's concern is the Gospel  Rock area on the boundary of the  Village of Gibsons and there is no  need to repeat here what she handles  so adequately in her column.  The question of what is to become  of ihe Sunshine Coast is a vital question and the unfolding of the solution affects many areas and all of  our lives. In Cooper's Green and  other areas in the vicinity of Halfmoon Bay, for instance, the same  divergence of views is being made  manifest as exercises our columnist.  On the one hand we have those  who deal in the profitability of land.  They, understandably, are concern  ed almost totally with the maximization of profits in the development of  the Coast. On the other hand are the  residents who seek not to profit but  to enjoy. They have made clear in  the various settlement plans that  they have participated in that a  prime consideration in every area of  our lovely area is the preservation of  as much of the rural charm as possible.  The time of decision is upon us  and it behooves the elected representatives to avoid making a mockery  of the democratic process which has  seen the drawing up of the settlement plans for the area.  It is undemocratic, it is  unreasonable, it is profoundly unwise if the wishes of the many are to  be ignored to the benefit of the few  who see only the opportunity to  make quick fortunes when they contemplate the natural splendours of  the Sunshine Coast.  .from the files of the COAST NEWS  FIVE YEARS AGO  The Canadian Metric Association says we will be putting  ourselves out of step with the  rest of the world If we reckon  barometric pressure in  kilopascals Instead of millibars.  But the Federal Metric Commission says the millibar is old  hat: If we do to the kilopascal  directly we will be the flrs.t In the  world to put ourselves In step  with the rest of the world (metric  logic Is different too).  So if they split on the  Kilopascal, what will they do  when time goes metric, as it  will, no matter what promises  may be made now.  When the day becomes 10  hours and the hour 100 minutes,  so that darkness at noon means  it's 12 below zero will that be  Monday...?  TEN YEARS AGO  The boat licence proposed  last fall for non-resident sports  fishermen In British Columbia  waters will go into effect in  1972.  Fees for privately owned  vessels will range from $15 to  $75 depending on vessel size.  U.S. charter and rental  vessels will be classed as commercial and pay the same  licence fees as fishermen in the  salmon fleet from $100 to $400.  Proceeds of the licence  scheme will go Into a fund to  build coho and spring salmon  hatcheries.  FIFTEEN YEARS AGO  The Bank of British Columbia  is on its way. The house committee on finance, trade and  economic affairs gave the bank  Its blessing last week.  All has not been clear sailing  however, Ottawa has been adamant. It has insisted that there  be no meddling In the bank's affairs by Victoria.  Also It has Insisted that the  new Bank of B.C. be a private  bank In every sense of the word.  Before It can open its doors  the new bank must satisfy the  inspector general of banks and  the Cabinet in Ottawa on questions of personnel, capital and  organization. .  TWENTY YEARS AGO  From an editorial:  What now, Pender Harbour  Hospital Committee?  Your motion asking for a stop  on the construction of a new  hospital was defeated by 70 percent of the more than 800 persons at two Sunday meetings.  Surely an 85 per cent vote for  a hospital improvement district  plus a 70 per cent vote against  your motion to delay hospital  construction should finally convince you.  Most people in this area sym  pathize with the coming loss of  the hospital you have had in  your midst for so long but most  of them realize something must  be done to have proper  hospitalization here for the  years to come.  TWENTY-FIVE YEARS AGO  Prompt action by neighbours  saved the homes of two Sechelt  sisters from total destruction by  fire when the J. Lumsden and R,  Clarke homes, close to each  other took fire about 2V4 hours  apart.  Jack Redman noticed the fire  at the Lumsden home and ran to  phone the fire department.  There was considerable fire  damage to the interior of the  house and much smoke and  water damage to the contents  An electric Iron, left on, Is bellev  ed to have caused the fire.  The Ray Clarke home took fire  from the basement furnace and  the fire truck returned to the  scene hampered by cars and on  lookers. Smoke and water  damage was also bad In the  Clarke home.  THIRTY YEARS AGO  The country newspapers of  British Columbia, and Canada  are "the voice of the people"  because of their Independence  -a voice which speaks up for and  defends the rights and freedoms  of the common man.  Such was the reminder left  with B.C's weekly newspaper  editors at their 33rd Annual Convention In Vancouver last week  by W.C. Hanks, president of the  * Canadian Weekly Newspaper  Association.  Speaking of the important  community role played by the  weekly editor, Mr. Hanks said "It  Is well to remember that the  weekly newspaper is an institution In the community. There is  nothing else quite like it and  therefore there is nothing else  that can quite take its place."  THIRTY-FIVE YEARS AGO  Halfmoon Bay: The fishing  seiner "Keranina" turned over  below Pender Harbour in the  storm which lashed the coast  the early part of last week, but  her crew was rescued by  another flshboat.  The "Varholm", nearby, sped  to the scene and removed the  "Keranlna's" crew to shore, but  the latter boat's skipper remained in the dinghy until the tug  "Sea Swell", which reached the  scene, took his vessel in tow,  and pulled her upside down into  Halfmoon Bay.  Nanaimo, aboul 1910. The canoe central to this scene is a masterpiece of the native carver's art. The maker was a specialist among  specialists in the working of wood. Without the aid of plan,  template, or form, he created oul of a single log a thing of both  geometric and practical harmony. With ages of testing in natural  waves and currents as a resource, the carver brought his inner vision into reality from living cedar. The Hudson's Bay Company  bastion to right of centre remains as a relic of fur trade days half a  century inlo the coal age. This canoe, of Squamish origin, was purchased by Captain Thomas L. Higgs and Captain William Y. Higgs  twenty years after the time of this picture, and was later presented  by Ihe brothers to Ihe City of Nanaimo. Il is on display in Georgia  Park.

"Oh, my God," thinks  Stuart, "what's coming  next?" He is also surprised that his father even  knows that it was on the  27th of October, 1964,  that he was born in St.  Mary's Hospital at the  confluence of the Yukon  and Klondike Rivers in  Dawson City.  Remember the date?  Hell, I remember the  chess situation in the  game I was playing at the  time. I had thetown's only doctor, Dr. Fariddudin  Sharif, in difficult straits  in a match we were playing in his living room  when he was summoned  away to deliver the new  infant. "It's a son," he  said when he returned to  find me still studying the  board awaiting his move.  I cannot remember,  however, who won the  game. It must have been  the doctor.  Anyway, Stuart, I just  drove home from work in  a rainstorm on a dark October night in a car with a  very weak battery. The  lights were bad and coming towards me was a line  of cars heading down to  catch the ferry. It was  scary. The glare off the  road and the weak  headlights and the steady  stream of passing cars  sent me down a gravel  road to Lower Road in  Roberts Creek lo get  home where, though I  still couldn't see very  well, at least there was  less traffic.  It reminded me of a  drive I took from Montreal to Toronto when I  was not much older lhan  you are now.  Twenty-five years ago  the freeway from Montreal to Toronto had not  been built. Instead of a  freeway there was a two-  lane highway clogged  with constant traffic for  the entire three hundred  and fifty or so miles. It  was only a weekend trip  so we did the long  distance driving at night,  myself driving and my  friend Roy Brown providing the conversation  to help keep the driver  awake.  The car was a beat-up  Morris Oxford with a  crumpled right fender.  The headlight on that  side wandered aimlessly  off to the right and lit up  the passing trees. That  meant I had to rely on the  left-side light for staying  on' the road and also  meant that I had to cling,  against the glare of the  continuous all-night traf-  fice, to the centre lane. I  was hogging it most of  the way because it was the  only thing I could see  most of the way.  On the drive back from  Toronto it rained  furiously for the entire  drive. The windshield  wipers on the old Oxford  quit with two hundred  miles to go but we found  that if we opened the  hood and punched the  electric motor which  made them work there  would be a rapid ticking  sound and we could clear  the windows for another  few miles.  Every fifteen minutes  ' Roy Brown pulled back  the hood release, jumped  out of the car in the rain,  punched the electric  motor, climbed back in  complaining eloquently,  and off we went again.  The rain got heavier  and heavier and accidentally about one hundred  miles from Montreal in a  torrential downpour Roy  discovered that if he pulled back the hood release  inside the car and let it go  hard like an arrow from a  bow it would hit the  frame of the car hard  enough to start the electric motor to start the  windshield wipers.  We were laughing  hysterically for the last  fifty miles and driving  mostly blind in heavy  traffic. The wipers would  quit, Roy would pull the  hood release, the wipers  would start. Pretty soon  it was every five minutes,  then every two or three.  Of course, with the  hood release pulled open  I couldn't drive very fast  in case the hood blew off.  Song  / can't be lalkin' of love, dear,  I can't be lalkin' of love,  if there be one thing I can't talk of  That one thing do be love.  But that's not sayin' that I'm not lovin' |  Still water, you know, runs deep,  An' I do be lovin' so deep, dear,  I be lovin' you in my sleep.  But I can't be lalkin' of love, dear,  I can't be talkin' of love,  If there be one thing I can V talk of  That one thing do be love.  ��� Esther Mathews  [Slings & Arrows^  [George MatthewsP**  I couldn't see very well  and one way or another I  was an absolute menace  to everybody in the road  and in imminent danger  of getting wiped out  totally but laughing  hysterically all the way.  I got thinking about it  tonight because it's only  about six miles from my  office to home as opposed to the three hundred  and fifty we drove  twenty-five years ago.  When I got home, last  night, however, I was  really shaken up after the  ten minutes drive. When  1 was your age I was still  having a great time after  about twelve hours in a  car with bad lights and  failing wipers on a bad  road.  The point is that when  you are in your late teens  and full of energy and  life, death seems so very  far away, though it never  is.  I hear that you've  bought a car and your  sister says you drive fast.  1 know that sisters exaggerate and I guess that  you'll be thinking that  dear old Dad is turning  into an old fogey. That's  a risk that fathers have to  take, I guess.  Try to be careful, son,  is my birthday wish. It's  so easy to get killed on the  road. Remember, I want  to make that canoe trip  from Whitehorse down  the Yukon to Dawson City next summer and I'm  certainly not going to attempt it if you are not  there to take care of me.  With municipal elections just around Ihe corner, this might be a good  opportunity to examine  the strange workings of  the Canadian political  system. It has been suggested by reputable  political economists that  the historical success of  North American political  and economic institutions has been the result  of our peculiar propensity for chaos and incompetence. The theory  goes, in a nut shell, that  as a consequence of a  lack of planning,  political corruption, inexperience and general  incompetence, enough  money is lost,  squandered and wasted  to ensure a flow of capital  large enough to fuel the  economy. The theory implies that if our politicians were competent  managers and effective  decision makers, a large  segment of our economic  structure would wither  and die and the socioeconomic mobility of our  people would cease.  If this theory is even in  part true, then the nature  of Canadian politics is  easy to understand.  Basically, we in  Canada have three levels  of government,  municipal, provincial  and federal. Our  forefathers were indeed  wise when they established this three tiered approach to political  organization.  In their wisdom, the  early settlers knew that  the closer the government  was to the people, the  more important it was.  They were also aware of  Im "an nature and realized that the closer a politician was to the people,  the more likely it was to  see his flaws and warts.  Therefore, based on  these simple premises,  our forebearers invented  municipal government  which has the three important characteristics of  being the most important  level of government, the  least secure for a  policitican, and the level  most likely to attract  well-meaning but basically inexperienced and incompetent people.  In the early days, provincial governments were  not particularly important in terms of what they  could do for the people,  but our ancestors immediately, in their  awesome wisdom, saw  the need for a place to  which tiresome, persistent and overly-  ambitious municipal  politicians could aspire.  Thus provincial governments were created and  whenever the local people  wanted to put a local  politician out to pasture  Ihey would encourage  him lo run for provincial  office.  it was a useful place  for Ihe local politicians as  well. When Ihey were  caughl with Iheir hands  in the town coffers, or  their drinking habits  became the topic of  poolroom conversation  or they were caughl in an  inappropriate bedroom,  they could simply move  on, both saving lace and  pretending to be able lo  better serve the needs of  their constituents.  Moving up to the provincial government  therefore, served two important services; il allowed the town lo gel rid of  old, overbearing politicians while al Ihe same  time making room for  new, inexperienced and  incompetent people to  take their places. As time  went on, however, and  communications improved, Ihe need arose for a  federal governmeni. The  federal governmeni was  established to make a  place lo send particularly  tedious and persistent  provincial politicians  who refused lo die or  leave the legislature in  order to make room for  municipal politicians  who were being moved  along Ihe line by Ihe local  voters.  The whole functioning  of Canadian government  depends on mobility. It  can not stand for any  politician staying in one  place long enough to  become either competent  or experienced al his job.  This syslem also allows  a community the luxury  of having inexperienced  people dealing with issues  that most affect them,  while al ihe same time  having the most experienced politicians in  the federal government  where they are only permitted to deal with the  most vague, abstract and  philosophical of issues.  And of course when a  federal politician gels too  big for his britches and  starts to act as though he  knows what he's doing,  he can always be moved  along to the Senate.  That, then, is how the  Candian political system  works; it is simply a matter of making sure that  the most inexperienced  people get to make the  decisions which are most  important, those at the  municipal level, while the  most experienced politicians get shuffled off to  decide on things that  don't really matter.  Remember  that  on  :  municipal election day,  November 21.  Mama I  Letters to the Editor  Coast News, Novetrber 2,198.

It is a matter of record  lhal Alderman Trainor  has been an advocate of  preserving our harbour  area as the birthright of  ihe village and not to be  turned over, with accompanying foreshore leases,  to what can only be a very  affluent sector of the real  estate market.  It has been my personal experience that  Larry Trainor can always  be stopped in the street  Marshall affords up the  opportunity to have an  Alderman with a wealth  of experience.

In  Ontario and Quebec we  would qualify under a  program to rehabilitate  old mills and possibly  from DREE as well, but  not in B.C.  It's true that capital  outlay is treated as a  legitimate business expense in calculating profit for tax purposes but  that's true for the  smallest businessman as  well as the "canny  capitalist". I must add  that the increased value  of the mill will be quickly  reflected in our property  taxes which already total  $ 1.7 million per year, and  there's  no homeowner  grant  for the "canny  capitalist".  Your second editorial  saddled poor old BCRIC  with ownership of Ocean  Falls. Ocean Falls is owned by B.C. Celulose, a.  crown corporation.  W.I. Hughes  Editor's Note:  Thank you for the letter, Mr. Hughes. We may  have areas of disagreement but I believe I  discern areas of agreement. I share, for example, your Indignation al  the preferred treatment  meted out to Central  Canada over the West.  That your company does  not qualify for direct  grants doesn't surprise  me. You are, after all,  Canadian-owned and  much of the largesse of  Canadian governments  seems reserved for multi-  nalional or foreign-  owned companies.  My second editorial  did not saddle BR1C with  ownership of Ocean  Falls. I'm afraid your  reading of it did that.  Disarmament  Editor:  The request by our MP  Ray Skelly for a referendum on the issue of peace  and disarmament is not  only laudable but commands the support of all  responsible men and  women everywhere as  this is one single issue  that will affect our very  survival and therefore  towers in importance  above all other issues  combined.  Advocates of "Guns  before Butter" have no  compunctions in denying  school lunches to  millions of children in  order to feed the war  machine nor have any in  removing the food from  the table the needy, most  of whom through no  fault of their own, but  simply victims of poverty  rooted in the fabric of  our social system, owing  to the very nature of these  still primitive societies.  One can expect a  negative response from  neanderthals found  largely among organizations such as the Ku Klux  Caodtcs. Nub end Mho* Trcafi.^  A Country Candy Store  SWEETEN  UP!

(Bob) Maxwell  Small Business Week  Editor:  Last week was proclaimed "Small Business  Week" - and rightly so, I  feel. Your editorial on  the subject was excellent  and I for one salute you  for it.  However, 1 would like  to expand on the subject  briefly if I may. When 1  was an employee of the  Government, 1 always  tried to return a part into  the system in some way.  Now, of course, I am a  small business man and,  as you pointed out we are  heavily burdened with  taxes of all kinds.  Perhaps some of the  government employees  -be they forestry, or  teachers or nurses, or  Regional Board - and  School Board employees  and pensioners also  should look at small  business as the goose  which lays the golden  egg. It should be  remembered always that  the government has no  money of its own - its cof  fers are filled through  taxation, and a goodly  part of these taxes comes  from the small  businesses.  It is the small  businesses which provide  a major portion of  livelihoods in this province. It is the small  businessman who invests, works, and  creates an enterprise  -often fraught with major risks - and most often  it isn't as easy as it appears to be - but in the  final analysis some of us  prefer the freedom (if it  can be called this) to  make our own decisions.

By  special engagement, for  one night only, Charlie  Musselwhite will be performing a dance/concert  at the Community Hall  on Thursday, November  5.  The Hall Committee  were lucky enough to  catch him between concerts in Vancouver and  Victoria. Word is, he's a  really good blues musician (even I've heard of  him!) so don't miss this  chance to see and hear  him.  The concert is from 8  to 12 and tickets are  $6.50 at Seaview Market.  Pre-sales only and no  minors.  Tenders Oul  It may be hard to get  excited after all this time  but the Joint Facility has  Anally been let out to  tender. The deadline is  this Thursday so we may  see some action before  Christmas. The one good  is that construction costs  may have gone down  because of the depressed  state of the industry.  Early Hallowe'en Vandalism  The question of what  to do with the old  Women's Centre behind  the Post Office was settled by arsonists early last  Thursday morning. It's  too bad because it could  have served somebody  quite nicely as temporary  living quarters and  several people were interested in the Community Association's  giveaway.  Firemen's Bingo  The Roberts Creek  Volunteer Fire Department's annual bingo is a  week Saturday,  November 14, at the  Community Hall. Grand  prize is $1000 and tickets  are $5 each from  members of the Department or Seaview Market.  Bingo starts at 8 pm.

The Auxiliary would  like to thank all those  who came out and supported them.  Cards Thursday  Bingo's over until the  spring but now  Thursdays will be card  night at the Legion.  There'll be crib and  whist every week starting  this Thursday,  November 5, at 8 pm.  Do come out if you're interested. It's social and  fun and it sure beats TV  these days.  Book Tables Now  Craftspeople are  reminded to book their  tables now for the Crafts  Fair on November 27  and 28 as space will be  limited. Tables are $10  each day and can be  booked through Sue  Shepherd at 885-2972 or  Marion Jolicoeur at  885-3605, both after 6  pm.  Souptime  Roberts Creek  Elementary is once again  collecting soup labels for  books. They got enough  for a couple of books  last year and they have  more time this year, so  they hope to do really  well.  So please start saving  your labels from Campbell's soups, Franco-  American products, and  Allen's apple juice and  apple sauce. They must  be in to the school by  February.  Salmon Running  If you've been  wondering   when   the  Pender Auxiliary  The Pender Harbour  Hospital Auxiliary met at  ihe Church Hall on  Wednesday October 14  wiih President Gladys  Brown in the chair. There  were 14 members present.  Jean Prest was elected  as the Pender Harbour  representative to Ihe  Thrift Shop.  Members are reminded  ihat ihe Auxiliary will  again have a table at the  November 7 Swap Meet  in Madeira Park. Home  Baking and any saleable  items that you wish to  donate should be at the  Hall before 9 am. on  Saturday. If you need to  have any items picked up  or stored please phone  Sylvia Thirlwell at  883-9963.  The Annual Luncheon  meeting to be held at the  Jolly Roger Inn on  November 25th will also  see the new slate of officers installed. Keep that  date open and invite a  guest along.  The next regular  general meeting will be  held on November 4 (one  week early) al 1:30 pm. in  the Church Hall. New  members welcome.  Creek Auxiliary  Here loday, gone tomorrow.

They had a lough job of  it when the water was  low but ihey shouldn't  have that problem now  Hallowe'en Artistry  The artists of Roberis  Creek Elementary really  outdid themselves wiih  the decorations for  Hallowe'en at the Hall.  All the traditional  creatures were there,  Jack 'o' lanterns, black  cats, and ghosts but the  three-dimensional witches flitting through the  air on broom sticks were  particularly effective.  Heard on the CBC  Head lice are a pest and  an embarrassment but  Roberts Creekers needn't  feel they're alone in the  all-too-frequent  epidemics. Even the nation's capital is infested  at least twice annually  and apparently no one is  "above approach". So  take heart the next time  you see an MP scratching  in the House of Commons - it may not be the  sign of perplexity you  thought but rather a  shortage of Kwellada.  Gardening  clinic  On November 7,  Saturday, 10 a.m. - 3  p.m. the wizard of  gardening, David  Hunter, will present a  morning lecture on fall  gardening and pruning.  In the afternoon, the  class will visit two different gardens which will  give David Hunter the  opportunity to demonstrate the do's and don'ts  of gardening.  You are advised to bring along warm clothes  and an umbrella in case  the weather chooses not  to co-operate.  The lecture will be held  at Roberts Creek School  and the fee is $10.

Ms. Northway  reported on both the  Area Conference and the  Co-ordinating council.  All areas of Auxilariy effort indicated active participation by this group.  The extended hours in  the Thrift Shop appear to  be fruitful as sales have  increased each day since  the Tuesday hours were  added without detracting  from the previous hours  on Thursday and Saturday. The Thrift Shop is  certainly a priority place  for family shopping and  the area is a pleasant  place to "browse".  Plans for the Early  Bird Boutique were  finalized. The event goes  on from 11 am. to 2 pm.  at the Community Hall in  Roberts Creek on  November 7. There's no  admission charge and a  variety of foods will be  available for lunch.

It is about bitterness and animosity. 1  find it beyond my comprehension that when  issue-, of interest to a  population arc publicly  or privately discussed  they should be followed  up by threats from those  with whom you disagree.  Surely wc are a civilized  enough community to be  able to each have our own  opinion and to express  this even although we  have different viewpoints.  It is hard to understand  why anyone should be  considered an enemy if  they choose to stand up  and say what they feel is  right. To listen to and to  respect the opposite viewpoint then to graciously  accept whatever is decided, be it for or against  what you think, is surely  the way to live in a  democracy such as ours.  Most of our local readers  will be aware of the subject on which I speak  -that of public hearings.  At the lime of writing no  decision has yet been  reached on two matters  of local interest. The  matter of the re-zoning of  Coopers Green is still  under consideration  while the one on lot sizes  has yet to take place.  What I would like to say  to my readers is this.

A First for Halfmoon  Bay:  It was an exciting occasion for seven bright-  eyed wee boys at the  Halfmoon Bay school  last Monday evening  when they became the  first Halfmoon Bay  Beaver Colony. Dave  Hartman, District Scout  Commissioner was in attendance to perform the  investiture ceremony of  Leader Bob Cocking and  the boys of the group.  The little fellows were  bursting with pride when  they were presented with  the neckerchiefs and  badges by Commissioner  Hartman. To add to the  thrill the Colony was  presented with a big stuffed beaver which was the  work of Mrs. Blace, the  mother of one of the  Beavers. The seven boys  who presently form this  group are - Lucas  Bolivar, Paul Gruner,  Gary Blacc, Kee Chung,  Logan Taylor, Colin  McLeod and Jeffrey  Pinkster. The motto that  Ihese boys are taught is  -"Sharing, sharing",  while their Promise is "to  love God and to help lake  care of the world".

Pender changes  Continued from Page One  The restructuring investigation committee  presented a list of questions to the ministry official which included  what options are open to  the Pender Harbour  area.  "This can only be  determined by the committee and what boundaries are set. The options could include the  forming of a district  municipality centering on  Pender Harbour, ty  municipality of Pender  Harbour alone, and, the  committee should also  look into the status quo  and working with the  regional board,"  answered Callan.  The second question  asked by the committee  was what responsibility  would be assumed under  each option.  "Incorporation or  restructuring will end up  with all the responsibilities of a municipality. If the population is in  excess of 2,500 people,  the municipality is immediately responsible for  welfare costs, over 5,000  and the municipality is  responsible for policing  costs. Responsibility will  be assumed for road  maintenance and  upgrading   and   the  municipality must levy  sufficient taxes to meet  its own costs and school  district taxation. Other  responsibilities could be  many. It depends on  what the people want and  what they are willing to  pay for," claimed  Callan.  Ed Lowe, chairman of  the committee, gave as  the reason for striking the  committee, that the local  feeling was that the area  was poorly represented  on the regional board.  "We are 14% of the  population on the Coast  and we pay 16% of the  taxes. We don't feel we  are getting much in  return," said Lowe.  The Coasl News asked  Mr. Callan if approval  would be given to the formation of an official  Pender Harbour restructuring committee as the  committee studying the  amalgamation of Sechelt  and parts of Area C was  disbanded when the idea  of restructuring the entire  Sunshine Coasl local  government was broughl  forward.  Callan replied thai il  would be carefully looked al by the Ministry and  ihe decision lies wilh  higher authorities within  the Ministry.  iOME FIRST AT  PRICES EFFECTIVE: TUESDAY - SATURDAY NOV 3-7  TI.BLEIITE MEftTI  $tl% of jfeclplt  NOTICE OF THE REGULAR COUNCIL MEETING lo bo hold al Iho  Village Office on Wedneaday, November 4th, 1981 at 7:30 pm.

Since  that day the 11th of November has been the day on which the  people of Canada remember the 105,358 Canadians killed In  the First World War, the Second World War and the Korean  War. For this reason the day is called REMEMBRANCE DAY.  At 11:00 a.m. on November 11th at every branch of the  ROYAL CANADIAN LEGION a service Is held In memory of  those of our comrades who gave their lives for their country.  Daring the 1st World War an unforgettable poem  was written by -John MeCrae���IN FLANDERS  FIELDS.  "In Flanders Fields the popples blow  Between the crosses, row on row..."  Since that time the poppy has become the symbol  for those who died In these three wars.  Prior to Remembrance Day each branch of the Royal Canadian Legion puts on a poppy sale. In Gibsons, Branch 109  handles this sale. There are many veterans who do not  qualify for disability pensions, and, although there are other  pensions they may receive there Isn't sufficient money for  themselves or their families. It is only through poppy sales  that we can take care of members in need. This is the only  time during the year that we ask the citizens of the Gibsons  area to give us financial assistance. Every penny taken In  from poppy sales goes to needy veterans' assistance.  Popples will be on sale In most stores and banks.  Please bny one and wear It with pride. If yon are  canvassed through the malls, please give to the best  of yonr ability. ROYAL CANADIAN LEGION  BRANCH 109  GIBSONS, B.C.

It takes a while to make, but  there's nothing difficult about it and It can either  be used straight away or frozen for some future occasion.  You will need approximately S lbs. of beef brisket  neatly rolled and tied up with string.  Make up the following mixture:-  2 tablespoons coarse salt  2 teaspoons saltpetre  3 tablespoons brown sugar  3 cloves garlic, chopped  4 tablespoons pickling spice  Rub the mixture into the brisket and place It and  any leftover bits into a rust proof dish. Cover the  dish and keep at room temperature for 24 hours.  The next day, turn the meat over, cover it again,  and place it in the fridge. Repeat this process for 10  days.  When the 10 days are  up, drain the meat and rinse  under cold running water to remove the spices.  Place the brisket in a saucepan, cover with cold  wafer, baring to the boll and drain. Cover the  brisket with cold waler once more and simmer  slowly until lender ��� 2V4 to 3 hours. When lender,  drain It and pal dry. Ii you are going to freeie It,  wall until It's quite cold then wrap tightly In  ireeier paper and freeie.  Ii you are going to eat it straight away, place It in  a roasting pan and stick a few whole cloves Into it.  Pour some maple syrup over it or make a mixture of  yellow mustard and brown sugar In equal parts  and spread over 11.

Coast News, November 2,1981  Doorway to the Woods  My brother, Chris, hits  I he bush a good year  belore 1 do. In the late  autumn Of 1948, he arrives in low n from several  months upcoast, wiih his  lirsl logging slake of any  consequence. I am amazed by ihe change in him.  In Ihe relatively brief  period since we last mel,  he has attained his full  growth. His hair (due  more lo ihe lack of a  camp barber lhan any  prevailing fashion) is  down lo his shoulders.  He looks astoundingly fit  and well. The slight boy I  saw off al ihe Union  Steamship dock lasi July,  is gone for good. Chris is  bound we must have a  niglu on Ihe town to  celebrate his return. I am  certainly nol averse to the  suggestion.  Since we aie both  several years shy of Ihe  legal drinking age (and  look il), ihe acquisition  of liquor is frequently a  problem. Chris has Ihis  one covered in advance.  "Scotia, a friend of mine  from camp, is picking me  up a couple of crocks,"  he says. "We'll meet him  downtown."  After a few abortive  Pages  from a Life-Log  Peter Trower  phone calls, I manage lo  interest a couple of girls  who are amenable io a bit  of illicit adventure. We  pick them up in a cab and  head for a Hastings  Street cafe lo make Ihe  meet wilh Chris' obliging  friend.  Scotia (as his name implies) is an expatriate  Marilimer, squat, bushy-  browed, muscular, aboul  30. He seems friendly  enough. The liquor deal  is quickly transacted.  When we gel up lo leave,  Scolia gels up loo. He  seems lo assume lhal he is  invited. A fifth wheel was  nol exactly in our plans  but since he has done us a  favour, we can hardly  refuse him. We are only  bound for a nearby  bottle-club anyhow.  The place in question is  on nearby Pender Sireet  in the heart of Vancouver's Chinatown.  Such establishments are  theoretically restaurants  and ii is mandatory lhal  some sort of food be purchased. But unlimited  mixer can be bought on  request and brown paper  bags under the table are  si udiously ignored by the  inscrutable waiters.  The club is virtually  deserted. We order  Chinese food, gingerale  and settle in to have a  party. Ii all goes quite  smoothly at first. With a  lew drinks in him, the  taciturn Scotia becomes  talkative and regales us  with tales of the camps he  has worked. The yarns  are amusing bul full of  technical jargon that only  he and Chris understand.  Il is confusedly entertaining at firsl but he doesn't  know when lo stop. After  awhile, Ihe constant talking begins to grate on our  nerves. The girls grow  fidgety. Chris and I finally retire to the John. We  arc discussing various  diplomatic ways to get rid  of Ihe garrulous  Marilimer. Suddenly, Ihe  door bursts open and  Scotia comes charging  through like a berserk  rhino. He has somehow  developed the delusion  Ihat Chris and I have  come lo the washroom to  fight.

It  catches me off balance  and square in the mouth.  The next thing I know, I  am sitting square in ihe  urinal with a cut lip.  "Hey, man, take it  easy!" protests Chris.  "Nobody wants io  bloody fight! We were  just talking!"  "Don't tell me whal io  do, you sonofabitch!"  roars Scotia, quite amok  now and oblivious to  anything but the blind  immediacies of battle. He  swings on Chris (who is  still a good deal lighter  than me, despite his  growth) and knocks him  ass over teakettle too.  I lurch to my feet with  the seat of my pants soaking wet and no sort of  strategy in mind. Scolia is  strong as a bull and mad  as a hatter to boot. I look  around vainly for  something to clobber him  with. At this moment, the  door bursts open again  and four or five excited  Chinamen come running  in. "You stop! You stop!  We call the cops!" one of  them if piping in a high-  pitched voice like some  bizarre cheerleader's  chant.  Scotia turns on them  like a cornered gorilla. 1  think for a second, he is  going to tackle the whole  pint-sized lot. He stands  there, red-faced and  quivering, his big fists  bunched. Then, all at  once, he shrugs his  shoulders. The unwarranted anger seems to  drain from him like dirty  oil from a crankcase.  "It's okay," he mutters  gruffly. "Little  misunderstanding.  Everything's under control."  Offering no further explanation or apology, he  pushes past them and  heads rapidly for the exit.  Chris (who must have  taken a harder punch  than me) is still leaning  dazedly against the wall.  "Damnit, I'm sorry  about that," he says.  "Scotia's a real good guy  in camp. Guess he just  can't hold his booze."  "That's for sure," 1  agree. "Don't think I  want to meet any more  loggers like him."  "Ah, most of them are  okay," Chris insists,  loyal to his new-found  trade despite the incident. "Hell, you'd like  the woods."  "No. I'd make a lousy  logger," I say.  The logging camps  seem to suit Chris at this  particular stage of his  life. He relishes the  adventurous challenge  and the company of  rough, grown men. But I  am, quite frankly, afraid  of the woods. I still carry  in my mind, that brief,  violent image from years  before. It seems no more  appealing to me now than  it did then.

Yan's first cookbook, Tbe Joy of Wokking,  took Chinese food enthusiasts by storm. In the  sequal to his popular guide to oriental cookery,  Yan elaborates: "Food that's fresh and creative  always excites me. But I also think that cooking  should be simple, quick and spontaneous. Like  other arls, cooking should incorporate contrast, harmony, vitality and imagination."  Wokkists would agree.  Reading the forwards and introductions, one  can see that Yan researches his recipes  thoroughly. His team of over a dozen nutritionists and dieticians test each recipe for the  usual taste, appearance and technical aspects.  While he comes across as a slash and dash  cook, he evidently is not.  The book begins with Yan's philosophy: a  natural part of the Chinese food experience.  His "Few Words From the Humble Cook" are  seasoned with candid remarks about himself  and peppered with "what the hecks". The use  of the wok and other implements is fully explained. Basic ingredients help the initiate to  wokking. But the recipe sections themselves are  what bring smiles along with good food.  Anecdotes about each dish, humorous titles  and Chinese characters along with sayings that  must come from fortune cookies make the  cookbook more than just a recipe collection.  Chapters include Fowl Plays, Oodles of  Noodles, Souper Duper Soups - ending with  Woks of Thanks. Its 3SS pages prove, however,  that all is not cuteness with friend, Yan.  Recipes are in metrics as well as traditional,  gourmet section are particular about preparation and ingredients, the careful blend of  graphics and basics make this a First choice for  the Chinese food cook.  On days when I can enjoy an extra cup of tea  after dinner, 1 like nothing better than browsing  through cookbooks, dreaming how to serve the  recipe, what it would taste like and to whom I  would present it. Yan's book is the perfect  browser for me, and maybe you or someone on  your gift list.

Or even her face. 1  can't remember anything  about her, except that the  two of us sneaked away  from home one afternoon and went and  played doctor in the bush  across the street, until we  heard one of our mot hers  yelling.  Hurriedly, we put our  clothes back on.  I was nine years old. It  was my very first real experience with sex.  It also turned out to be  my very first real experience wiih punishment. Real punishment.  Punishment on the scale  that poor old Job must  have suffered.  In our innocence, the  little girl and 1 played  doctor in a clump of  poison ivy.  The next morning 1  woke up to find myself  covered with horrible  blisters that were  unbearably itchy.  When 1 scratched, the  blisters burst and a colourless fluid spilled out  over the unblemished  parts of my skin, usually  following the path of my  fingernails.  In hardly any time at  all, I was criss-crossed  with maddening bumps  and blisters. The only  relief to be found was to  gouge them to the point  where they'd bleed. At  least, for a few precious  moments, the itching  would be replaced by  pain.  To give you the full  flavour of this experience, I must tell you  that 1 was raised as a  Roman Catholic, and at  this particular stage of  life was just starting to  have prepubescent biological stirrings which instantly collided with the  church's teachings about  sin and how he'd punish  you if you played dirty or  anything like that.  Well. Zap!  Suffice to say 1 quickly  confessed my sin to  anyone who would listen,  got smartly down on my  knees, and prayed! 1 begged. I whined. I wheedled. I offered deals.  My punishment lasted  seven full years. Every  spring thereafter, until  19S8, as soon as the first  green bud appeared on  the nearest tree, I'd break  out in blisters and start to  There were a couple of  summers, near ihe end,  where the recurrence of  the Poison Ivy was attended by a rare  phenomenon: The rash  spread inside my body,  where I couldn't scratch.  One last detail: Every  night, I'd pour a bottle of  Calamine lotion into my  open wounds so that the  itch would be burned  away long enough for me  to be wrapped from head  to toe in bandages, then  put to bed wearing  gloves, my body surrounded by pillows, in  the hope that I might be  able to get through the  night without scratching.  Every once in a while it  worked. But mostly I'd  wake up in the middle of  the night, crazy with torment, stagger into the  bathroom, and rip the  bandages loose so 1 could  claw at my flesh, opening  everything up again,  making it raw.  In the mirror, I'd see a  creature that looked like  a blood-soaked mummy  emerging from its crypt.  The itching finally did  go away and I started to  live a normal existence.

Slowly, with many a  nervous glance upward  over my shoulder, I inched my way to freedom  from the influence of the  Catholic church.  I like to imagine  nowadays that my rational mind is totally in  control. I can tell myself  that it was jusl pure coincidence, that it really  couldn't have been God's  punishmnet. 1 mean,  what kind of a God  would be that uptight?  1 take comfort in the  fact that I'm normal.

This quite  picturesque seaside  resort, built in the late  19th century on the  North of Wales as a  watering hole for the  solid burghers of N.W  England, saw the  remarkable sight of two  ex-Labour cabinet  members being given a  standing ovation by  2,000 ecstatic Liberals al  a 'fringe' meeting.  Perhaps the Liberals  saw finally the door to  No. 10 Downing Street at  the end of the long tunnel  in which they have been  travelling ever since  Lloyd George, MP for  Ihis constituency, last led  a Liberal government  back in the early 20's.  Their new companions  in Ihis race to win the  1984 general election are  composed primarily of  ex-Labour party members either disillusioned  wilh the swing to the left  of Ihat party or threatened by the growing control  by Bennite forces of local  Labour constituency  committees.  The battle within the  Labour parly itself is a  complex one. The party is  comprised of three  separate, but intertwined  power bases; first the  constituency committees,  the 'grass-roots' if you  will, secondly the  Parliamentary Labour  Party and thirdly the  trade union affiliates.  The recent battles within  the party have to a certain  extent been a reflection  of an attempt to re-adjust  the power relationship  between there these three  groups. At the recent  Labour party conference, which ended on  October 3 at another  seaside resort on the  south coast, Brighton,  the battle between these  three forces was evident.  It centered around the  election of a deputy parly  leader, the composition  of the National Executive  and party policies on the  EEC, NATO and the  economy.  The leader and deputy  leader are chosen by the  parliamentary Labour  party, (PLP), and the  two candidates were:  Denis Healey representing the Right; Tony  Benn representing the  Left. Healey, who had  the endorsement of the  party leader Michael  Fool, won by a slim majority, thereby, according to some observers,  staunching another  wholesale defection of  the Right wing Labour  MP's to the Social  Democrats. The Right, in  the Labour party also  managed to re-assert a  slim hold over the Party  National Executive, but  in the area of policy the  Left was victorious.  This victory of course,  shows the fact that the  mood of constituency  association's is much  more radical than that of  party leadership. The  Left feel that a change in  the method of selecting  party leadership, and  thereby reducing the  power of the PLP and  their TUC block-voting  allies is an absolute  necessity.

Thus the Labour party  is faced in the next year  with an awesome task.  To overcome inner divisions, to produce procedural changes in party  structure without opening the way to an extremist takeover, and at  ihe same time to produce  a series of party policies  which will be sufficiently  attractive to wean voters  away from the SDP and  the Tories. The situation  frankly looks bleak. It is  expected that a number  of Right wing, and "soft  Left" MP's (those on the  Left who supported Foot  and Healey but nevertheless propound radical  policies), will have grave  difficulty in obtaining  local party endorsement  to stand for parliament in  the '84 election. The local  constituencies have to a  great extent been captured by Bennite and also  avowedly Trotskyite supporters. It was this movement as mentioned  earlier that led to the  defection of many  Labour members, and  contributed to the founding of the SDP.  Furthermore it is evident from a recent London Times poll that the  electorate at large is wary  of Labour policies: SDP  41%, Labour 31%, and  25% for the Conservatives.  These policies include  withdrawal from the  EEC without a referendum, abandoning of  British nuclear weapons  and an economic policy  which relies heavily on  government intervention  in every part of the  economy, save incomes.  The Labour party  must, if it is to gain power  in 1984, re-define its  socialism in such a way  that it can become an acceptable alternative to  SDP/Liberal centrism  and Tory right wing  monetarism. It is a bailie  for the hearts and minds  of the Centre/Left in  British politics.  The SDP/Liberal  Alliance is of course in  that honeymoon midterm election euphoria,  where electors can express their resentment lor  the two traditional parties and try their hands at  something new. They  also have the task of  hammering out policies  in the place of the vague  generalities that have until now been their stock-  in-trade.  The Alliance must  come up with alternative  strategies to deal wirWnc  British economy and the  arms race. They must  also assure the public that  a leader will be selected  from the gaggle at present at the top: Steele for  the Liberals; Jenkins,  Williams and Owens for  the SDP. If they can do  these things and if the  Labour party continues  ils internicine battling  then they very well may  form the government in  1984. The recent victory  in Croydon has given  ihem what they believe is  a great begining. The  nexl round begins in the  forthcoming by-election  in the Manchester suburb  of Crosby,a prosperous  middle class area which  has had a Tory MP for  the last 50 years. The  Alliance candidate is  Mrs. Shirley Williams,  one of the "Gang of  Four", who founded the  SDP. She is at present  ahead in the polls and a  actory for her would certainly be a great setback  for both other parties.  However, if the SDP is  to be taken seriously, and  is nol a mere flash in the  pan, il must also make In-  roaa^jtito two areas of  traditional Labour parly  strength; they are local  government and the trade  unions. Gains in these  areas are not accomplished by clever media-  campaigns or on the  backs of opposition  weakness, but are won by  the foot-sloggers warring  out a battle of attrition.  The question of  whether the SDP has the  staying cower lo create a  solidrsBBsasaiticul base and  whether the Laboui party  can heal its wounds will  be answered over the next  18 months.  *���*******���*���****������****������  1    NICOLA VALLEY REFRIGERATION W\  *  *  *  *  I  *  #  *  *  I  I     .

From 9:30  to 2:30, she has to lead 36  inquisitive little bodies  and minds through the  intricate steps of developing and maturing, and  gratefully accepts  assistance and takes  responsibility for the  supervision of two mom  helpers.  With eight years experience, she has no intention of quitting her  job; she really loves it. At  home, she has a family to  care for: two sons, 19 and  17 and a daughter 13.  "Teaching is  something I always  wanted to do, but never  had a chance to, until we  moved to Gibsons ten  years ago and settled  down here. When my  children were small, I used to help out as a parent  volunteer in the schools  and found it very intriguing."  Lorna took a University diploma course in Early Childhood Education  and immediately found a  job at Jack and Jill. She  and Laurie, who leaches  the three year olds, travel  to Vancouver once a  month for ongoing training, gathering fresh ideas  to every challenge their  energetic mini-students.  And where would they  be without the dependable and supportive  parents of the  preschoolers? Last week,  Hallowe'en occupied the  scene. Two moms helped  with face painting, two  more brought special  Hallowe'en baking for  the afternoon party.  There were scary  Hallowe'en pictures to  paint, popcorn to nibble,  handmade paper pumpkins to lake home, and  huge autumn scare crows  lurking in the corners  while the crooked carrot  nosed jack-o-lantern  flickered merrily in the  corner.  Outings are a lot of  fun, discovering the  world "without Mom",  but with new found  friends instead - a step  towards independence at  the tender age of four.  Jack and Jill  Playschool was begun in  1969 by Joanne Rottluff  and Gail Ohler on a five  morning a week basis in  the Gibsons United  Church Hall. Mrs. Ohler  was the firsl leacher. In  1976, a second teacher  was added for three year  olds and in 1977, the  preschool moved to its  permanent location  beside St. Mary's Church  in Gibsons.  Service groups, such as  the Kinettes and Lions  and community minded  businesses donate money  v\& time for both the  building and the outside  play equipment.  The preschool is  always seeking new  enrollments and expects  to have some openings  after Christmas, when  the new Rainbow  Preschool in Roberts  Creek opens.

"This is the  last year that the funding  and grant monies will be  alloied. In the firsl year  ihe provincial government pays for 90% of Ihe  costs, the other 10% is  ihe board's share, $8,600  which is not even 1/lOlh  of a mill," said Stelck.  A motion was made io  include in the provisional  budgel for 1982, $8,600  lor ihe function of the  commission as well as the  immedaie advertisement  for an economic development commissioner. The  commission will include  members from each electoral area, a member  from ihe regional board  plus a member from each  council.  Stelck reported lhal he  learned ihat many grants  had been awarded lo land  development projects  and Ihe commissions  wanted more emphasis  put on marine oriented  resources such as  maricullure (farming of  the sea) and for other  recreational purpose.  The commission also  discussed and requested  that ihe federal and provincial agencies work  with a more co-operative  approach as some conflicts in interests were being met.

The Mayor of Gibsons  was widely quoted  recently as saying "People come here to enjoy  the rural atmosphere",  but what are our elected  officials doing to  preserve it? We have  highly paid planners and  other experts, bul  development proceeds  with apparently no  thought for anything but  I he dollar value of land as  a commodity.  Yes, I did understand  Ihat a green belt is being  considered along the  bluff with a look-out at  the top; so that Ihe louts  can throw their beer bottles down that lovely  moss and wildflower  studded slope as they do  on Shoal Lookout, no  doubl.  I'll have to admit to a  suspicious mind, but do  you suppose the reason  the bluff is planned as a  green belt rather lhan a  park is so that, if and  when the village relents  and allows houses to be  built on such rocky terrain, the chastity bell can  be quickly withdrawn?  Gospel Rock bluff,  with its arbutus and firs,  moss-covered rock faces  where dogtooth violets,  tiger lilies, harvest lilies,  blue-eyed mary, pink  valerian, mimulus, wild  onions, mayflowers and  other lovely wildflowers  grow should be kept as an  ecological reserve, it's  too precious to be  desecrated by those who  only want to make a  quick buck today. What  of tomorrow? Will there  be any of these once  beautiful rock bluffs left  for our children's  children to roam over, to  explore and to delight in?  In the past 95 years,  generations of Gibso-  nians have climbed the  Gospel Rock bluff; it has  use, by designating a  ravine or rock outcrop or  other terrain not suitable  for lots to park purposes.  What Mitten Realty  doesn't tell us, is that  almost half of this narrow strip of land, all of  which would be expensive to provide services  on, has a 20 foot easement across it for the  village's sewer system  pipeline lo Ihe outfall  which enters the sea just  north of Gospel Rock.  While the proposed park  may fulfil the letter of the  law, it doesn't meet the  intention of providing a  breathing space and park  area in lhe closely packed  subdivision.  Mr. Mitten wants the  village boundaries expanded so that he can  take advantage of the  smaller lot sizes allowed  and squeeze as many  houses as possible onto  the level area between the  bluff and Chaster and  Mahan roads. So we shall  have   another   area  bulldozed of every living       __  thing.

Sechelt Mayor Bud Koch corrected this impression  by stating that he values the service Cues and Snacks  offers the youth of the community and that after  meeting last week with the Langevin family, owners  and operators of the business, he "appreciates the  work they have done to bring the premises up to very  good standards" and is "pleased at how they handle  supervision of their customers".  The major issue with the Health Department was  that food preparation and the handling of money was  being performed by the same person. That is no  longer being done and Mayor Koch stated they are  not in contravention of health standards now.  The noise problem has been caused by congregating youths outside the premises at Ihe 11 pm.  closing time. Another visit will be scheduled in two  weeks if Ihis problem remains.  After the meeting with Mayor Koch, Mr. Leo  Langevin said he now "feels much better. We had  felt complete strangers with council against us."  Ai ihe sunset <���/  life. . uf care.

While Bill Messenger  was alive the bluff was  safe, Ihe rock and his  sheep were his most  precious possessions and  he didn't hesitate to take  after trespassers with a  gun. It would surely be  fitting for Mr. Child who  inherited the property to  dedicate the Bluff as a  park in memory of Bill  Messenger, with a  generous green bell between it and the subdivision, so that people must  walk in to the edge of the  rock.

Many people think that means  teachers work a 25-hour week.  Not so.  Classroom time is only part  of a teacher's regular workload.  There's a lot of behind-the-  scenes activity: long hours at  night and on die weekends  preparing lessons, marking  exams, correcting assignments.  Consultations with counsellors  and other specialists. Meetings  with parents. Planning field  trips. Coaching sports teams,  clubs, music and drama groups.  Coping with the daily "blizzard"  of paper from the school board  and the Ministry of Education.  Surveys show that teachers  work as many hours outside the  classroom as they do in it.  And class time is often stress  time. A high-school teacher may  deal with 150 different students  every day. Teaching is one of the  most demanding and stressful  occupations.  So when "they say" that  teachers have it easy, they're not  seeing the whole picture.  Teachers throughout B.C. are  trying to improve working and  learning conditions in our  schools through negotiations  with their local school boards.  We want to bargain.  We need your support.  Please ask your school  trustees to bargain in good  faith with your local teachers'  association on these vital job  conditions.  Sunshine Coast Tfeachere Association  SCTA  J Letters to the Editor  Council's decision seen to be appalling  Coast News, November 2,1981  15  I  Editor:  1 am appalled that the  city council decided  against a public referendum concerning Opera-  lion Dismantle. 1 am  uncertain as to whether  any place on this planet  can afford not to pay the  'added municipal expenses' required for such  an important and relevant question.  Need 1 remind you of  the demonstrations lhal  are occurring all over  Europe supporting disarmament? Is Canada not  to take a stance on Ihis  issue? Arc wc not a part  of Canada? We shall only  have ourselves to blame if  we continue to remain  silent concerning disarmament. This referendum provides us with the  opportunity lo express  our values on a crucial  world issue (that includes  us!) and you have denied  us that opportunity.  The 'economic' and  'relevancy to local  politics' reasons that you  have given for not  preparing the question  for public referendum  seem morally unsound  when one considers that  local politics and  economics depend upon  the continuance of that  community. Disarmament may be one of the  only ways to ensure the  future existence of any  local politics. Ecology  and economics must  begin to go hand in hand,  economics alone has led  us to our present state of  crucial imbalance (environmentally).  Seeing as how you have  already decided against  giving us a referendum  (let it be known that 1 do  not support this motion)  1 would like to propose  that you, as a council,  send a letter to Operation  Dismantle staling that at  least you, as a council,  support its campaign for  disarmament. We have  an obligation to concern  ourselves with the future  of this planet. Let us,  through you, support this  group by taking a position, a positive one. With  our support and that of  every other local in  Canada, we can join the  hundreds of thousands of  others who are becoming  aware of and taking  responsibility for the  moves of government.  Sincerely,  Renee Fountain  Sikhism explained  Shock  on disarmament  Editor:  Ii was with shock and  dismay ihai I rcadol'Gib-  sons Council's decision  not io prepare a referendum on the "Operation  Disnianilc's" call for  citizen support for  general disarmament and  world peace. The reasons  staled, namely  "expense" and "lack of  relevance" show (a) as  poor a penny-pinching  saving and (b) as com-  lailure io recognize the  obvious opportunities lo  do whal is wise and right.  May wc hope that council  might reconsider ils decision?  Our M.P.. Mr. Ray  Skelly, has shown leader-  ship in action on the  issue, and his proposal lo  bring our voices to Ot-  lawa, presents the opportunity for participation  bv us all. Mankind's only  hope is for decisive acl ion  on ihe part of wise  leaders throughout the  world. But Ihey, the  leaders, must have a  strong and continuing  evidence of the people's  will and of iheir support  for those actions.  Awareness starts, or is  still born, at home.  E.H. Burritl,  Gower Pt., Gibsons  Editor:  On November 11, Sikh  around the World will  celebrate the 512th birthday of Guru (teacher)  Nanak, the founder of  Sikh religion.  We all know the symbols of Sikhism: the turban, the beard, eic, but  hardly any non-Sikh  knows (and even many  Sikhs tend lo forget) the  spirit of Sikhism. Nanak  preached that ihere is only one God and lhal every  man by his faith and  good works could find  favour before Him,  without the intervention  of priests. He denounced  superstitious practices,  rituals, idolatry and the  caste syslem (which  modern India is trying  very hard lo do away  wiih...wiih considerable  success.)  The essence of ihe Sikh  religion is, whal Nanak  calls "The Three Golden  Rules", namely:  I. To earn lhe living by  honest labour; 2. To feed  lhe hungry, clothe Ihe  naked, care for ihe sick,  ihe blind, eic, lo give len  percent of earnings in  charily; 3. To pray lo ihe  Lord and be grateful to  Him for life, eic  Yours very truly.

He  bluntly slates ihat the  correct word is War, and  goes on to chargelhal the  Reagonites are whipping  up war fever in the time  honoured way of getting  peoples's minds off their  domestic troubles.

Sincerely,  Frank Fuller  Canadian unions musi  become more responsive  lo public opinion,  Employers' Council of  British Columbia president William Hamilton  told an Ottawa audience  loday.  Hamilton cited the  growing awareness industry has of social  pressures as an example  unions musi follow lo  maintain iheir support  from ihe public.  "What I'm asking is  whether the leaders of  Canadian labour have  kept pace with management in coming lo  understand Ihe role of  public consent in their  activities," Hamilton  said. M^^^^^^^  Amnesty  International  "Unions in many sectors are running lhe risk  of losing Ihe public consent which is ihe basis of  iheir success, and their  freedom of decision," he  told ihe Ottawa Associa-  lion for Applied  Economics.  Unions are necessary,  he said, bul ihey are  associations bearing a  greal social responsibility. While unions have  been quick to grasp the  importance of issues  such as women's rights,  he quesjioned whether  "Ihis awareness extended to the basic mailer of  ihe relationship between  Iheir activities and the  public?"  Have you ever  wondered what Amnesty  International does?  Amnesty International is  a worldwide human  rights movement which  works impartially for the  release of prisoners of  conscience.  A simple device such as  writing letters has been  effective in the release of  people throughout the  world who have been  held in prisons and tor  tured.

Urban sprawl  and industry seem to be  in a race lo destroy the  countryside before our  very eyes!  We feel trapped and  unable to lift a hand to  prevent the degradation  of our forests and  streams and the pollution  of our oceans. What can  we, as individuals, do to  prevent this mindless  destruction? For one  thing, we can join one of  the groups of people in  Ihis area, who are concerned about the condition of our environment  and arc in much with  others in ihe province  who are doing something  about Ihe problem.

A  person receiving OAS  and the maximum G1S  will ihus receive a monthly total of $444.36.  For a married couple  who are both pensioners,  the maximum  Guaranteed Income Supplement will increase to  $171.64 each from  $166.32. Added to the  basic pension, this will  give each married pensioner receiving the maximum GIS a total of  393.38 each, or $786.76  for the couple. This supplement is paid to pensioners whose income,  apart from the Old Age  Security pension, is  limited, and the amount  varies in relation to income.  It is worthwhile to  note that both of the  above increases amount  to only 3.3 percent each  while Canada's rate of  inflation in 1981 is at  least 12 percent. This can  hardly be called a fair  deal for Canada's  seniors!  Recent unemployment  figures show we are at  the start of a long hard  winter.  Statistics Canada announced the biggest  month-to-month jump in  unemployment ever for  September. That is to say  the government's  economic incompetence  has claimed another  144,000 victims. These  people   are   useless  sacrifices to high interest  rate policy of the  Liberals.  It is clear tight money  doesn't reduce  inflation.The experience  of the last six years is  proof of that. But high  interest rates do force  people out of their  homes, ruin job opportunities and bankrupt  businesses and farmers.  A closer look at the  unemployment statistics  shows that unemployment is up drastically  across the country, in all  regions and age groups.  As NDP finance critic  Bob Rae commented:  "Liberal economics have  forced the economy to  seize up. Growth and job  creation in all regions  and industries are being  ground out of the system  at a time when we need  expansion and jobs  most."  Rae called on the  government to bring in a  budget that repudiates  high interest rates, ends  the inequities of the tax  system and implements a  comprehensive industrial  strategy.  High interest rates are  creating a tremendous  hardship for the average  wage earner who is watching his income shrink  in the face of the double-  digit inflation. We need  to end the unfairness of  the tax system, which  allows wealthy corporations and individuals a  tax holiday while working Canadians pick up  the tab. We also need an  industrial strategy that  stimulates the economy,  puts people to work and  creates jobs across the  country.

"That's not a bad  idea," 1 replied, and  after a short discussion  we went indoors and  made a rough outline for  a writing project that has  proceeded fitfully ever  since.  I embarked on the task  with serious misgivings.  I've always suffered  from acute attacks of  nostalgia, which my dictionary defines as "longing for something far  away or long ago".  Blessed (or cursed) with  a sharp memory for incidents of the past, I  have often replayed  scenes from my earlier  days over and over, feeling the emotions of the  times so poignantly that  it was almost painful.  Either I'd long  desperately for the  "good old days" to be  repeated or create new  outcomes for events that  ended unhappily. Reflecting on the assorted  triumphs, embarrassments and failures of  my adolescence, I  thought, might give me  an overdose of nostalgia.  To my surprise, the  writing project my  brother suggested turned  out to be more than a  futile exercise in  nostalgia. It was even  cathartic, purging me of  some of the regrets and  confusion that had  bothered me when 1  thought about my high  school days.  Although the project  has lain dormant for  many months, my  brother and I accomplished a great deal  in the enthusiastic early  stages, keeping the  postal service busy with  the outlines, drafts, revisions and suggestions we  exchanged.  Our concern was not  to recreate our teenage  years in detail or recall  trivial incidents or  describe our friends,  teachers, preachers and  others as we remembered  them. Instead, our aim  was to describe important aspects of life in a  small, predominantly  Mennonite, semi-rural  community, as seen from  the vantage point of the  teenage young people in  the town.  The titles of some of  the essays indicate the  scope of the topics: Fair  Play at the Basketball  Game; Forbidden Fruit;  The Loneliness of the  Long-winded Preacher;  Christmas Carolling;  Family Life; Serving at  the Wedding; Musical  Mosaics; Relapse and  Revival; At Work in the  Strawberry Fields;  Among the Called and  Chosen.  One of the most enjoyable essays to write  was "Serving at the  Wedding", which recounted the thrills and  terrors of participating  in the Clearbrook  equivalent of a  debutante's ball. Serving  at a wedding was one of  the rituals that initiated a  Mennonite youth into  adolescence.  An excerpt from this  essay reads: "Since the  social graces of many of  the servers were lamentably ill-developed,  pouring hot coffee or tea  skillfully could be a  daunting task. Much  depended on the poise of  the girl holding the cup.  Some partners skittered  the cup around nervously and the luckless boy  needed a few tentative  sloshes before he could  hit the target squarely.  Other girls, bolstered by  the experience gained at  earlier weddings,  brought the cup right up  close to the heavy coffee  pot sd the pourer just  had to tip the pot to  achieve success...  "There were other  hazards to watch out for,  however: the sudden  shift of liquid as the  large kettle neared the  empty mark; the errant  elbow that knocked the  cup off the saucer as you  reached over a guest's  shoulder; a collision in  the crowded  thoroughfare near the  kitchen...  "The boys, especially  the rookies and those  who weren't 'going with'  their serving partner,  hung around near the  kitchen between servings, self-consciously  making small talk,  checking to see that their  pencil-thin ties were  straight and that just the  right amount of white  linen showed above their  suit pocket (too much  and the name of the dry  cleaner would be visible  above the three peaks).  "Then, 'Maybe we  should check our table  again,'   your   partner  tional institutions.

Writing these essays,  examining the good and  bad aspects of growing  up, and attempting to  relate the experiences to  the present, have not  cured me of nostalgia by  any means, but the project has allowed me to  put the pasl into perspective. 1 know if 1 could  relive any segment of my  life I'd probably make  all the same mistakes  again, with various new  ones thrown in for good  measure.  As Neil Diamond sings  in And the Grass Won't  Pay No Mind, "The moment we're living is  now". Things are nevet  the same as they used to  be. Even nostalgia has  lost much of its appeal  for me, and it's just as  well. There's more than  enough to challenge and  interest me in Ihe present  to keep me from giving  too many fond ot  morose backward  glances to the past.  Poison proofing  by   J.   Shaske,   BSc.  Pharm.  Here are some of the  do's and don't's that I  promised you a couple of  weeks ago regarding  poisons and prevention.  (Part of the following is  from a chart made by  American Druggist). I  hope you will save this  chart and refer to it when  you are "poison-  proofing" your house.  1) Keep all poisons and  medicines well labelled  and out of reach of  children.  2) Give infants and  young children drugs only as directed by your  doctor.  3) Don't give or take  medication in the dark.  4) Do not take medicine  from an unlabeled bottle.  5) Throw poisons away  where   children   and  animals will not be able  to get to them.  6) Use cleaning fluids  with adequate ventilation.  7) Protect skin and eyes  when using insect  poisons, weed killers,  solvents and cleaning  agents.  8) Destroy old prescription contents and containers.  9) Do not give an unconscious person  anything by mouth.  They might choke.  10) If someone swallows  an acidic solution don't  try to neutralize it with  alkaline solution as the  second solution can burn  the tissue as much as the  first solution.  11) Always contact the  nearest emergency service so they can recommend the necessary treatment and procedure.  ���������Ml An open letter to parents from a policeman  The reality of drinking, driving and dying  Coast News, November 2,1981  21  Editor,  This is an open letter  to parents of all young  people everywhere. 1 am  writing in response to  some of the questions  you ask me daily. 1 am  not one police officer,  bul I represent every officer in every city and  town in Canada.  You may only know  me as the cop who gave  you a ticket last summer,  but I am also the guy  who lives down the street  from you. I am a parent  of three children and I  share with you the same  hope, ambition and  dreams that you have for  your children. I am faced  with the same problems  you have. I share with  you those moments of  agony and ecstasy. I  share with you the feeling of shame, guilt and  disappointment when my  boy or girl gets into trouble.  The scene is a long  stretch of highway, with  a sharp curve at one end.  It has been raining and  the roads were slick. A  car travelling in excess of  80 mph missed the curve  and plowed into an embankment where it then  became   airborne   and  struck a tree. At this  point, two of the three  young persons were hurled from the vehicle, one  into the tree, the other  onto the roadway where  the car landed on him,  snuffing out his life, like  a discarded cigarette on  the asphalt. He is killed  instantly, and he is the  lucky one.  The girl thrown into  the tree has her neck  broken and although she  was voted queen of the  senior prom, and most  likely to succeed, she will  now spend the next 60  years of her life in a  wheelchair.  Unable to do anything  else, she will live and  relive that terrible moment over again many  times. When I arrive, the  car has come to rest on  its top, the broken  wheels have stopped  spinning. Smoke and  steam pour out of the  engine ripped from its  mounting by a terrible  force. An eerie calm has  settled over the scene and  it appears deserted except for the one lone  traveller who called it in.  He is sick to his stomach  and leaning against his  car   for  support.

The  third passenger has  almost stopped bleeding,  the seat and his clothing  are covered in blood  from an artery cut in his  arm by the broken bone  end that protrudes from  his forearm just below  the elbow. His breath  comes in gups as he tries  desperately to suck air  past his blood-filled airway. He is unable to  speak, and his eyes, blue  and fixed on me  pleadingly, are the only  communication that he is  terrified and wants my  help. I feel a pang of  guilt and recognize him  as the boy I let off with a  warning the other night  for an open container of  alcohol in his car. Maybe  if I had cited him then,  he wouldn't be here now.  Who knows? 1 don't.  He died soundlessly in  my arms, his pale blue  eyes staring vacantly as if  November 10th at 7:00  p.m. in the Cedar Cottage Clinic.  There will be morning  and evening classes  available.

I remember watching  him play basketball and  wonder what will happen  to the scholarship he will  never use. Dully, my  mind focusses on a loud  screaming and I identify  it as the girl who was  thrown from the vehicle.  I race to her with a  blanket but am afraid to  move her. Her head is  tilted at an exaggerated  angle. She seems  unaware of my presence  there and whimpers for  her mother like a little  child. In the distance, I  hear the mournful wail  of the ambulance winding its way through the  rainy night. I am filled  with incredible grief at  the waste of so valuable  a resource���our youth.  I am sick with anger  and frustration with  parents and leaders who  think that a little bit of  alcohol won't hurt  anything. I am filled  with contempt for people  who propose lowering  the drinking age because  they will get booze  anyway, so why not  make it legal. I am  frustrated with laws,  court rulings, and other  legal maneouvring that  Complete high school  at Cap College  Capilano College's  high school completion  and upgrading program,  (BTSD), at the Sechelt  Learning Centre, is well  underway again this fa  There ird, m-^Mhr-si  a few spaces available  Seafood Platter  by Chak-Chak  Our coastal monsoon  seems to have begun in  real earnest and already  we have a disaster on the  Squamish Highway.

This is the first of a  series on the "Program"  re-printed from  Salmonid, their newsletter.  Sunshine Coast In good  hands  "Just look at all that  crystal-clear groundwater pouring out of the  hillsides and away into  roadside ditches," said  Bryan Allen, community  advisor for SEP's public  participation program.  "On the Sunshine Coast  we still have an excellent  opportunity for natural  enhancement. The creeks  here are still in good  shape, much like the  streams on the north side  of the Fraser River were  20 or 30 years ago."  We were driving to  Granthams Landing to  meet with Bill Chinnick  of the Granthams Landing Residents' Association, whose members will  start a chum project on  Soames Creek this summer. With a youth  employment grant, Bill  has hired three summer  students to help with  cleanup, building and installation on the site. An  old concrete tank already  in place will be used to  hold, incubate and rear  cutthroat trout, a  popular species among  anglers along the Sunshine Coast.  After examining the  groundwater source that  will be used to supply the  chum incubation box, we  walked down to a point  below the highway where  Soames Creek exits from  a culvert. "Below the  culvert we can build a  jump pool," Bryan said,  "to give the coho salmon  access to the upper  creek."  At Chaster Creek,  Bryan and I walked down  a steep forest trail to inspect a chum incubation  box operated by students  at Elphinstone Secondary School. During last  December's floods, a  clay slide above the water  intake silted up the box,  killing the chum eggs. Inside the box however, we  found two chum fry  swimming in tiny pools  of clear, upwelling water.  The rest of the eggs were  covered in a layer of  brown silt. This summer,  the incubation box or the  water intake will have to  be moved to prevent the  silting problem from  recurring.  Continued next week.  Sea you.

The ambulance begins the job of  scraping up and removing the dead and injured.  I stand by watching as  hot tears mingle with  rain and drip off my  cheeks. I would give  anything to know who  furnished those young  people wiih that booze.  As I clear the scene, I  will spend several hours  on reports and several  months trying to erase  from my memory the  details of that night. I'  will not be alone. The  driver will recover and  spend a lifetime trying to  forget. I know that eventually the memory of this  fatal accident will be  diluted and mixed with  other similar accidents I  will be called upon to  cover.  Yes, I am angry and  sick at heart with trying  to do my job and being  tagged the bad guy. I  pray to God that I might  never have to face  another parent in the  middle of the night and  say your son, Bill, or  your daughter, Susan,  has just been killed in a  car accident.  You ask me why did  this happen? It happened  because a young person,  stoned out of his mind,  thought he could handle  two tons of hurtling  death at 80 mph. It happened because an adult  trying to be a "good  guy" bought for, or sold  to some minor, a case of  beer. It happened  because you as parents  weren't concerned  enough about your child  to know where he was  and what he was doing;  and you were unconcerned about minors and  alcohol abuse and would  rather blame me for  harassing them when I  was only trying to prevent this kind of tragedy.  It happened because, as  people say, you believe  this sort of thing only  happens to someone else.  For you sake, I hope is  doesn't happen to you,  but if you continue to  regard alcohol abuse as  part of growing up, then  please keep your porch  light on because some  cold rainy night, you will  find me at your doorstep, eyes downcast,  staring at my feet, with a  message of death for  you.

Even if a mat is not considered desirable, a strip  of mat board should be  cut sufficiently narrow  and hidden beneath the  inner edge of the frame.  If for some reason (an  artist's signature), a  wood-pulp mat must be  saved, it can be placed  on top of an all-rage  board.  Seal the back of the  picture with corrugated  cardboard, stiff pasteboard, masonite, or  featherweight board; it  protects against dust,  dirt and flying insects.  Use nails to secure the  board in place. Seal the  gap between the  backboard and frame  with wrapping tape. This  is permeable to the atmospheric conditions  allowing the frame to  "breathe" (respond to  changes in temperature  and humidity). An airtight frame is neither  feasible nor appropriate.  If the back of the  frame bears an important label, it should be  protected in an acid-free  envelope, attached to the  rear of the frame.  Pictures should be  opened and examined  periodically (about every  ten years to check condition). Clean the inside of  the glass at this time.  Never   use   nonglare  glass on valuable pictures. To function properly, it must be placed  directly against the picture. If a mat is used, a  frosted appearance  makes viewing difficult.  Reflection can be avoided by appropriate placing of the picture in relation to light.  Never frame a picture  between two pieces of  glass, whether with or  without a mat. It increases the danger of  mold growth and  breakage. Plexiglas  should be used.  (Plexiglas is a better  thermal insulator than  the glass and will not  condense moisture as  easily. It is unbreakable  and colourless addititives  will filter out ultraviolet  rays. It scratches easily  and tends to collect dust.  New polishing solutions  and anti-static products  have been developed  however.)  Never spray cleaning  fluid on the surface of  the glass or plexiglas. Liquid may run down inside the frame and stain  the mat or cause elevation of humidity inside  the frame. Always apply  cleaner to cloth. A good  solution to use is equal  parts of denatured  alcohol and water and a  small quantity (1 -2  ounces to a pint) of  acetic acid or vinegar.  Preserving, framing  and matting will be continued, perhaps a little  later when I find the rest  of my notes.

Wayne Rowe  Wills: (third and last in a  series)  If you have been with  me for the past two weeks  then you know that we  have reached the last formal step in the preparation of a will - namely,  the attesting or witnessing of the testator's  signature.  In order for the will to  be valid the testator must  make or acknowledge his  signature in the presence  of two witnesses both  present at the same time.  After this has been done,  the two witnesses must  attest the will in the  presence of the testator.  I cannot overemphasize the necessity for  following these rules to  the letter: The slightest  deviation may render  your will invalid.  This can perhaps be illustrated by an Ontario  *ca*se"wher��*a Mrs. Brown  executed her will in the  presence of her nurse  while the two of them  were alone in a room in  Mrs. Brown's home. The  nurse then attested the  will in Mrs. Brown's  presence.  The two of them went  downstairs into a lower  room where they were  joined by a Mrs. Moon.  Brown told Mrs. Moon  that she had made a will  and asked her to witness  her signature. Mrs.  Brown acknowledged her  signature before both the  nurse and Mrs. Moon  and the latter then signed  the will as the second  witness.  When the will came  before the probate court  it was held to be invalid  on the basis that it was  not attested to by two  witnesses after Mrs.  Brown had acknowledged her signature in their  joint presence, the nurse  having witnessed the will  prior to this event. .  The last problem  which is sometimes encountered in the attestation of wills is when one  of the witnesses is also a  beneficiary under the  will. This will not affect  the validity of the will  itself but it does produce  disastrous results for that  beneficiary inasmuch as  any gift in favour of that  beneficiary is absolutely  void. To complicate matters, this would also be  the result if the will were  witnessed by the spouse  of a beneficiary.  Provided that you  adhere to these few basic  rules you need not be  concerned wiih the  technical invalidity of  your will. The question  of ihe construction or  meaning of your will may  be another matter. The  rule to follow here I  would suggest is lo keep it  simple.  if cu. ft. capacity  Power miser twitch  . -Energy saver  White or almond,  Right or left door  .; X / BllTs Holland Electric Ltd.  | Jfe M6-9232     Hwy- I0I> Clbtoni  1 W, ntxt to Kan Dcvrlci O Son.  >:^^^::::!:'.:.::T.-:.':':.:::.:.

World of Rattan  J 24  Coast News, November 2,1981  Formaldehyde insulation  By joining their efforts, homeowners are  seeking to pressure the  government for compensation to remedy the  situation. They also want  the government to provide and pay for testing  of homes to determine  the seriousness of foam  deteriorationi because  each situation is dif-  ferenl.  High humidity and  high temperatures increase   the   rate   of  deterioration of the  foam, and many  homeowners may be faced with complete removal  of Ihe substance, a very  expensive alternative.  They are unable to sell  the defective homes,  "because no one would  buy one now, with all the  bad publicity," said Patterson.  The National Research  Council of Canada states  that exposure to formaldehyde can cause eve.  nose and throat irrita-;  tion, coughing and.  asthma-like symptoms,  headaches, dizziness,  nausea, vomiting and  nose bleeds.  In cases where the wet  foam has not dried properly, fungus spores  grow on the foam and are  carried into the home  where they can c ause  allergic reactions such as  intermittent breathing  difficulties, wheezing,  coughing and a sense of  constriction.  Formaldehyde gas is  both an indoor and outdoor pollutant, released  from motor vehicle emissions and from the urea-  formaldehyde resins used  extensively in particle  board, panelling and insulation as well as drapes,  carpeting and other  fabrics.  Homeowners are ad  vised to increase the ventilation rate and the interior air pressure in their  homes or basically to increase the supply of fresh  air coming into the  house. Sealing off electrical outlets, window,  door frame and wall and  ceiling joints is also  recommended.  Not everyone is sensitive to formaldehyde  gas to the same degree, il  is difficult to detect the  presence of the gas,  which has a strong  pungent odour until ihe  gas reaches concentra  tions of 1.0 ppm (parts  per million).  Some foams contain  chemical scavengers  which read with the formaldehyde and reduce  the emission of the gas  but as the foam  deteriorates, the effectiveness of the scavengers  decreases.  Although UFFI has  been in use in Canada for  several years, in 1977 it  was accepted by the  Canadian General Standards Board and CMHC  for limited use under the  Canadian Home Insulation Program (CHIP).  Continued from Page One  Despite governmeni  approval, many  homeowners are now faced with two unpleasant  alternatives: to remove  the topic substance which  means tearing out and  replacing walls or to suffer a serious drop in the  property value of their  home, in case they wish  to sell it and move out.  UFFI action groups  are hoping to pressure the  government into  acknowledging its  responsibility to reimburse homeowners in this  difficult situation, said  Patterson.  In a recent episode of  the CBC Beachcombers  series the set was filled  with fresh flowers for a  party being filmed. After  the set closed down, the  CBC good-guys donated  all the flowers to the  Kiwanis Village Care  Home. The truckload of  fresh flowers was most  happily received by the  elderly folk there.  * * *  There is plenty of atmosphere when dining at  Bonniebrook Lodge.
