Array .FCISLATIVE LIBRA**  SSES*- ��  il  COAST^NEWS  50 cents per copy on newsstands  SHED    1945  April 5,1993 Volume 47 Issue 14  J I  I  Crown rejects SCRD's watershed lease bid  by Jane Seyd  An application by the regional district to take out a lease on the upper  Chapman watershed has been turned  down by the Ministry of Crown  Lands.  But regional directors say the issue  is far from dead, and announced plans  to reapply for the lease at higher levels  in the ministry.  In February, directors decided to  apply for the lease - which would give  the regional district final say on logging  within the watershed - after the Ministry of Forests issued eutblocks over  board objections.  Directors vow to fight Chapman policy in court  The request was turned down recently by officials at Crown Lands, who  cited a policy not to issue leases on  watershed reserves, except for temporary occupation and statutory rights of  way.  But directors say they don't buy lhat  interpretation. "We intend to be taken  seriously," said regional director Jeremy Frith in an interview.  The regional district will be asking  exactly who received their application,  and for detailed reasons for refusing the  lease, said Frith.  If the board continues to be turned  down, it will appeal to the provincial  cabinet and "failing thai we will take it  to court." Last fall, the regional district  took steps to seek an injunction against  both the Forest Service and International Forest Products to stop logging near  Chapman Creek. A truce was temporarily reached out of court.  But basic disagreements on the issue  remain. "Forestry seems to believe it's  perfectly compatible to log under a  watershed reserve," said Frith. But that  position isn't shared by the board.  Currently, the watershed is managed  under a protocol set out between the  Ministry of Forests, the water management branch and Crown Lands - a situation similar in most other provincial  community watersheds.  Only two BC regional districts -  Vancouver and Victoria - have signifi  cant control over activity within their  watersheds. The Vancouver regional  district has a 999-year lease on most of  its watershed, first granted in the 1920s,  while the Capital Regional District in  Victoria owns most of its watershed  land privately.  Frith said the local regional district  will be talking to water boards in both  areas about their authority in the watersheds.  Meanwhile, the Sunshine Coast  Regional District isn't alone in wanting  greater control over rural watershed  activities.  turn to page 2  Gang violence,  vandalism slam  District of Sechelt  by Darah Hansen  Gang-like behavior is being  blamed for a scries threats,  assaults and vandalism recently  being carried out on the streets  of Sechell.  According lo police reports,  a small gang of young adulls,  ranging in age from approximately 13 to 22, has been linked  to  several  crimes      which have plagued  the district over the  pasl month. The incidents have ranged in  levels of violence and  appear lo be sporadic,  said Cst. Colin Crce  of.the Sechelt RCMP  detachment.  He said the gang  is thought to be  responsible for the  recent reports of beat-       ings suffered by students of  Chatelech high school as Ihey  leave. School staff have reported a group of young men waiting at Ihe bottom of the school's  hill and carrying out the  assaults. The gang appears to  be choosing ils victims, generally young males, at random.  Similar assaults have also  been reported at Trail Bay Mall  and at the West Coast Amusements carnival.  Cree said the gang's activities arc also connected to a spree  of window breaking that  occurred lasl weekend. During  the nights of March 26 through  28, windows were smashed at  Tbe gang  appears to be  choosing its  victims,  generally  young  males, at  random'  four Sechelt businesses. Another business, Cafetino Kid  Restaurant, reported a break and  enter during lhe same time.  Police report that weapons  have been involved in the criminal activity and that gang members have been reported with  pipes, chains and al least one  handgun - thought to have been  ���- stolen during a residential break-in earlier in Ihe month.  Cree said the term  "gang" is being used  to describe the  offending group  because of Information RCMP have  received linking the  members to some  degree of organized  behavior.  Though nowhere  near as serious as gang activity  occurring on lhe Lower Mainland, Crce said by way of dress,  language and demeanor "it  appears this group is trying to  emulate the (lack of) morals  held by more traditional gangs."  Cree said police believe they  have identified many of the  gang's members but have had  little evidence so far to convict  anyone.  He said witnesses to the  assaults and other crimes have  been threatened and intimidated  to the point of remaining silent  and have been reluctant to come  forward and testify in court  against the gang.  Failed toxicity test  forces mill closure  by Jane Seyd  Local pulp mill Howe Sound Pulp and Paper was temporarily  forced to shut down Thursday and Friday after failing a routine test  by the Ministry of Environment.  On Tuesday, lhe ministry learned that recent samples of treated  effluent from the company hud not passed a required toxicity test,  said Cory Legebokow, an environmental protection officer.  The cause of the problem al the mill hud not been confirmed hy  Friday afternoon, but both environment officiuls and a consultant  hired by the company were investigating. One possibility is lhat too  much ammonia was added us purl of Ihe mill's secondary treatment.  After discovering Ihe problem, Ihe mill first shut down Wednesday afternoon, und did not intend to reopen until the company could  be sure ils effluent would pass required tests, said mill manager Don  Stuart. Officiuls from both Environment Canada and the provincial  Ministry of Environment were at the mill investigating from Wednesday to Friday. Bolh ministries also took samples of the effluent for  analysis, though officials would not suy whether charges ure pending.  Bonehead (Buney), a sorrel Belgian draught-burse, is one of a team of two currently helping to clear  land on O'Shea Road in (iibsons. Joel Johnstone pholo  Staging a  return  of the  lumbering  giants  by Stuart Burnside  They're like animals lime  forgot, creatures of prehistoric  proportions that would probably have looked natural grazing with Wooly Mammoths or  Musk Oxen. Each packs  roughly 2,000 pounds of muscle about on tree-trunk legs  and their feel are Ihe size of  milk buckets. The only thing  that seems disproportionately  small compared to the breadth  and girth of Barrie Custance's  two ponderous draught-horses  is Iheir meanness of spirit.  "They're really just gentle  giants." Distance says.  "They're aboul us eusy going  as you can get."  Custance, a former Ministry  of Forests operations manager,  was given the two Belgian  sorrels by his family upon his  recent retirement, and he's  wasted little time gelling the  animals harnessed into action.  "I've been practising wilh  them," Custance says, "getting  used to them. But it's me that's  learning, not them."  Horses are nothing new to  Custance. His is a horse family, both in breeding horses on  their Gibsons property and  riding competitively. Bul these  are Ihe first work horses he's  owned, and he's finding nut  about them us he goes. "The  more time I spend with them  the more I realise how well  trained they are," he says.  The horses, Boney and  Tony, have been used in a  variety of situations before  coming lo Gibsons, from harrowing to logging. They've  even "acted" in u number of  movies in Cunada and the US,  including un episode of  McGyver. "ll seems like  they've hud pretty interesting  lives," Custance says.  Now that Honey and Tuny  ure Gibsons residents, distance says he would like lo  begin offering hay rides wilh  lhe two animals and has a  large wagon ready lo help  fulfil the goal.  turn to page 2  inside  n  mm'*  14  met  Mac Bio contemplates 300-acre West Sechelt development  by Roxanne Gregory  The fuce of West Sechelt may be  changing: MacMillan Bloedel, owner of  300 acres skirting Highway 101 north of  Gowland Road is considering residential  development of the property. The forestry  giant bought the treed properties in separate sales in 1977,19SS and '56.  In a meeting in Vancouver last Thursday, company officials approved in principal the use of the property for residential development. Final approval at M&B  is still pending, according to Nora  Stevenson, development representative  for the timber, lands and properties divi-  Residential growth cited as main reason  Stevenson, who met Thursday with a  Sechelt OCP sub-committee, said in an  interview. "We want to work very closely  with the community. We have had a consulting firm come in and do environmental and engineering studies of the property which would indicate it has a higher  value for use as residential property.  "We have not hud un offer from a  developer for sulc. It is not our intention  to sell and we intend to manage the property through the rezoning process and  possibly Ihe subdivision processes."  According lo Stevenson, M&B had a  variety of reasons for re-evaluating Ihe  land for residential purposes. Said  Stevenson: "Wc looked at Ihis property  and decided that il would be unfeasible to  reharvcsl the land in 70 years due to residential growth.  "You can'I have a logging operation in  the middle of a residenlial urea."  When asked if MacMillan Bloedel  would market the properties as well,  Stevenson said "That's not impossible,  although currently, wc arc looking at a  very long-term process. Everything is  very preliminary right now. MacMillan  Bloedel has marketed properties in olher  areas of the province, like our development in Cowichan.  "MacMillan Bloedel will be looking at  possibly harvesting some of the timber or  doing some selective logging with that  land prior to its use as residential property," said Stevenson.  t___M__m_tm_^_e_\  mam  I  m_m_m  _^ Coast News, April 5, 1993  Loi  IsTHs  Haircut  Adult: 8.95  Child: 6.95  Men <fi Women  Perms  Colour ol  Streaks  Gibsons demands audit of SCRD budget  Short  Medium  32.95  35.49  23.00  26.00  Long  39.49  29.00  Perms ind c ul aS sa?I ��� Cwidllionfng Treatment $ 11  Moll    Silt.

VON 3A0  FAX: 967*1535 (Dual Use Une)  by Charles Hart  Still stinging from the SCRD  1993 budget, Gibsons has followed Sechelt's lead und decided to call on the Ministry of  Municipal Affairs for un audit.  Mayor Eric Small told council at a special meeting Thursday the budget still amounts to a  49 per cent increase over last  year, and a 221) per cent increase  in the past three years.  "I have great difficulty in  accepting the reasonableness of  that," he said.  In particular, the town took  exception to a $27K,(KH) deficit  for lust ycur (when the SCRD  started out with a $45,(XX) surplus), and u contingency fund  for miscellaneous expenses that  hus been growing in each of the  last four years und contains  expenses the municipalities  believe they should be exempted from paying. Examples arc a  truck for animal control, purchase of Pender Harbour properly, and pur-     chase of Chaster  Park.  The town  objects lo being  billed for park  acquisition and  debt servicing  when there is a   special   parks  function to hundlc such transactions lo which the municipalities  do not belong.  "I didn't even know wc were  paying," the muyor said.  "The regional hoard has  never offered lo help us puy for  parks."  Cllr. Ted Hume said he was  stunned by the deficit revelation. "It's unbelievable that they  could go on until the end of the  year without knowing anything  ________   about  it,"  he  said. I feel very  strongly to have  Ihe minister (of  municipal  affairs) investi-  Vown council will  also ask tbe minister  to investigate tbe  structure of regional gate.  committees' .,T��wn,coun."  ________________^   cd will also ask  Ihe minister to  investigate the structure of  regional committees, not one of  which has a representative from  either municipality.  "It's evidence of the isolation  thut they continue lo perpetuate  on the municipalities and how  the deficit could have come into  play without us knowing anything about it," said Small.  Asked about withholding  payment for the town's SCRD  requisition, which is roughly  double that budgeted by Gibsons this year. Small said he did  not think it would be legal. "But  certainly at this stage of the  game you won't see my signature on the cheque."  Sechelt mayor Nancy  MacLarty had similar comments  about the regional district budget. She said her municipality  would consider not paying the  SCRD tax if no response came  from the provincial government.  "If we don't hear from Victoria, then (not paying) might be a  way to get some action,"  MacLarty said, "but we'd have  to find oul if it was legal."

While there are numerous  liabilities involved in running  regular hay rides, Custance says  between his 16 acres and two  neighbouring properties belonging to family members there ure  about 40 scenic acres upon  which to run a comparatively  safe hay ride route. "It would  make more sense than tuking  them out on to the road." Custance says.  As for logging, Custance  says that's another occupation  he intends to explore. He and  his horses are currently helping  to clear a small property off  O'Shea Road and Custance suys  there is potential for doing similar work in the future. "These  animals are great for working in  environmentally sensitive  areas," Custance says."

SATURDAY APRIL 17   SUNDAY APRIL 18  10 AM-6 PM 10AM-4PM  ���DOOR PRIZES���  Adults $3 Seniors & Students $2  Children under 12 FREE  4th Annual Gibsons & District  by Darah Hansen  Violent and criminal acts committed by Canadian adolescents und pre-teens is fast becoming an  issue of concern to the public.  But experts arc us yel divided on whether the  incidents are growing in frequency and severity.  "That's a difficult question lo answer," said Jill  Hightower, executive director of the Vancouver-  based BC Institute of Family Violence.  Hightower said a division of opinion exists due  to the lack of real data analyzing the issue,  "What we hear in the news is thut there is un  increase (in youth violence) but whether or not this  is really so I'm not sure. Maybe we're just focusing that much more on it," she said. Hightower  herself doubts there has been any real significant  increase. She said much of what is being reported  to the public is not necessarily an increase in actual  incidents of violence but rather a higher degree of  concern voiced by those who work with children.  "There is just so much focus on violence in our  society," Hightower said, "I think our level of  awareness is that much higher." She suid one factor that might have negative influence on people's  perception's is the ready influx of American news  on radio and television. "Wc do sec a heavy  amount of day-to-day violence portrayed to us in  the news coming from the Uniled Slates," High-  lower said. "There is no question thai violence in  America is very, very high. When you're bombarded all Ihe time with what's going nn in Detroit  or Texas, I think sometimes wc blur the two societies. So while we may be having un increase,  those influences are what we may be looking at  too."  But Dennis O'Toole, a PhD psychologist who  works with juvenile offenders at Vancouver Youth  Court, disagrees that increased violence may be  just a perception. Though he was reluctant to say  whether actual numbers of young offenders had  gone up, he did say lhe courts were witnessing a  significantly higher degree of serious crimes being  committed by Canudiun youth.  O'Toole said five years ago it was an uncommon occurrence to have a juvenile case raised to  adult court because of the severity of the offence,  "hut now it's done almost weekly." Is it because  there's more violence on TV, more competition,  more social pressures or just people becoming  more desperate? O'Toole asked. "From my work  here, it's all these ihings. It's just very difficult to  sort it ull oul."  real thing is a refreshing  reminder that draught-horses  helped shape and feed the world  for thousands of years. "I've  really enjoyed them," Custance  says, "They're a pleasure."  Protective  watershed  legislation  advocated  from page 1  Pearl Myhres, a director for  the Nanaimo Regional District  and secretary treasurer for the  Vancouver Island Water Districts Association, said in many  ureas, "Wc have been trying  desperately hard to get some  protective legislation for watersheds."  One major problem, said  Myhres, is that guidelines for  watershed management are still  just that - guidelines, rather than  legislation.

Peter Gzowski  had a full week of discussions of  it, and that surely should make it  official. But there is no customary plotting going on with this  revolution, no guns are being  hidden in haystacks, no barrels  of gunpowder being ferried  about al night, no underground  factories are busy making  bombs.  Ihis has got to be, if in fact it  is one, the tamest revolution in  history.  Just the same what they are  all, or at least a growing number  of ihem, beginning to say is that  it will prove the biggest revolution in history. It is of course,  Ihe technological revolution, the  computer of digital revolution,  and the reason it seems kind of  lame to many of us today is that  it has in fact been going along  now for quite a while.  Most people who encountered electronics back near the  beginning did so through radar  during lhe war. There was a  gadget came out called '0',  What you saw if you were a  navigator was an extra screen  mounted above Ihe navigation  table and an extra roll of charts.  The charts had great looping and  swirling lines overprinted in  various colours, quite  psychedelic though the word  was not much in use at the time.  What you did was press a button  under the screen. Two fluores  cent lines appeared quivering in  aboul two seconds. You measured the distance between,  went to the chart, picked out two  swirling lines, and where they  crossed, presto, that's where you  were.  Feeling thai we should know  what we were dealing with they  tried to explain. The screen of  course, was fronting a tube of  vacuum. At the back of the tube  was a blob of barium oxide.  When you switched on the barium oxide was heated, and when  you heat barium oxide, clouds  of electrons fly out, whiz?,  through lhe vacuum, light up the  screen and all the rest. Simplicity iteself. The whole thing could  be described under an hour with  a piece of chalk and a blackboard.  (liven a long night at I.UHX)  feet in mid-Atlantic, Ihis kind of  phenomenal whizzing aboul of  particles over vast distances  could lead you, perhaps, lo  think. I am not saying that any  navigator out there may have  forseen whal is happening  today, but I will say lhat there  are many of Ihem who are not  going to be in the least surprised.  It was explained by one of  Gzowski's panelists that the reason now is considered the time  of revolution is due to continuing development in the computer (digital) field. They are technological developments and  in a nutshell  they are no way anyway philosophical or ideological or political developments. They are simply revolutionary means of storing information, moving information about, and making information readily available to all  (all who can afford it).  I would like that there will be  many citizens around who will  wonder whether this, by itself,  can make all Ihe changes lhat  the new age people are bugling.  Everything is going to change  they say 'every thought, every  action, every institution.'  Ihis all on a basis of moving  around information, and mostly  information we have had there  all the time. There will be new  information, of course. The  machinery itself will develop  new information at a continuously prodidgious rate, but will  it be information that will really  matter a damn to anyone?  Gzowski pointed out that just  going in and out of his new  CBC building, and in and out of  his office, and making phone  calls here and there are all being  noted on a computer and all  stuart nutter  slashed away as 'information'.  The question of what is in  fact information is bound to  come up pretty soon if it hasn't  already. The simple answer is  that information is everything,  every littlest thing and some that  can't be seen, all jumbled up or,  in this case, inexorably filed  away. In the computer, though,  the relative importance of one  bit of information over another  is totally irrelevant.  The only computer we have  thai makes these necessary distinctions is of course, the brain.  There are things the digital computer can do that the brain can'l  (storing the whole of Dosto-  evsky word for word for example), but only the brain can  choose and make any sense of it  all.  There are people of Ihe new  age who are saying that education as we knew it is a thing of  the past. I would say that education in the humanities is growing much more important. If  there's any disagreement on  Ihis, in fact, lead me to the barricades.  Learn How To  Make A Moss  Hanging Basket!  Salurday. April I" ���.'

On analyzing these figures.|  am, astonished at the great (lis- ,  parity between allocating funds  to the French immersion pupils  and the short-changed core  French students (French as a  school subject.)  There is only one taxpayer  whether it is for federal, provincial or school taxes. If all the  grant money were pooled and  distributed on a per capita basis  the grant per French learning  pupil would work out at $44.52  per pupil.  With such funds most school  districts would be able to  strengthen their core French  programs from grade 4 through  to grade 12.  Thus enabling all students on  graduation in Grade 12 (after 9  years French), lo acquire a  working knowledge of grammatically correct French. This  would allow those young adults  who wish to become fully bilingual to perfect Iheir French language skills with a stay of six  months submerged in a French  speaking area.  What better way to achieve  the goals of whal all pundits of  French learning promote?  I hope you will study my  above information and abandon  Ihe wasteful French immersion  programs in BC, which result in  a drop-out rate of 75 per cenl,  cause loss of self-esteem to the  French immersion drop-ouls and  impart mere communication  skills (of grammatically cannibalized French) to French  immersion graduates.

Since they were first released  near the powerline between  1987 and 1989, some of the elk  have expanded their territory  southwards to Mason Road and  Snake Bay in Sechelt and there  have even been unconfirmed  reports of the elk in Roberts  Creek, says Doug Pierce, Coast  conservation officer.

Gibsons.  zzz  mals have been reluctant to  travel very far, even into the  higher elevations of the Caren  Range.  Originally from areas near  Qualicum and Campbell River  on Vancouver Island, the herd  of Roosevelt elk were moved by  the Ministry of Environment  after they began moving into  populated areas.  In three separate trips, the elk  were baited into corrals with  alfalfa hay and trucked over to  the Coasl.  Historically known lo inhabit  the mainland of southwestern  British Columbia, numbers of  Roosevelt elk dwindled because  of both hunting and habitat  removal. Another herd of elk  released near McNab Creek in  19.1.1 were wiped oul by the  1960s from similar causes.  Today, the elk on Ihe Coast  don't have many natural predators, says Pierce, although  cougars will kill elk calves if  they get the chance.  But even then "sometimes a  cow elk can be pretty aggressive," he says.  Currently, the elk which are  part of Sunshine Coasl herd are  not allowed to be hunted. But  since Ihe animal is not considered endangered, there are plans  to allow limited hunting in the  future.  The second largest animal of  the deer family, after the moose,  Roosevelt elk ure bigger than  rocky mountain elk, wiih a  cream-coloured rump and very  large antlers which the animals  drop each year.  The animals eat a variety of  grasses, shrubs and trees -  which can cause problems if .  they get near populated areas.  One nursery in Pender Harbour has been a little worried,  says Pierce: "They could do a,  lot of damage in one night."  The elk can also weigh up to  I,ppo pounds, which means  their footsteps can leave a rather  large hole, and have done on the  Pender Harbour golf course.   '  "So far the golf course has  been very tolerant about it,"  says Pierce, and has been trying  a technique of shooting noise-  makers at the elk to scare them  off into Ihe forest.  In areas where the elk are  hunted, they arc usually very  elusive, says Pierce, but in areas  where Ihey aren't hunted, the  animals can get quite tame.

Joel Johnstone photo  Tolerance urged during  National Wildlife Week  by Jane Seyd  In the time Doug Pierce has  been a conservation officer on  Ihe Coast, he's heard reports of  people shooting at everything  from seals to raccoons In great  blue herons, mostly in the name  of convenience.  He says it's time people  showed a little more respect for  wildlife and learned some generosity, "even though it's a bit  of an inconvenience or even if  some of the wildlife competes  with us.  "People can be very intolerant."

Lasl year, responding to a  report of shinning at seals from  a commercial fishing boat,  Pierce said he discovered blood  on Ihe rocks al the site.  "This is Ihe type of senseless killing wc have to avoid,"  he says. "...People feel  wildlife's stealing something  from them and they don't want  to be bothered."  In other cases "it's just a  matter of taking precautions."  For instance: keep garbage  out of reach of raccoons and  pick apples from the trees in lhe  fall rather than letting the fruit  attract bears. "Il's really sad if  we have to destroy the animal  because people can'l take care  of their garbage."  Last fall, a hear was part way  into a live trap set by Ihe ministry in a residential area nf  Gibsons when a man panicked  and, thinking lhe trap wasn't  working, shot al the bear, injuring the animal. "We never did  find il," says Pierce. "We don'l  know if it went away and died  or if il recovered."  Pierce says he's not sure if  there's an ethical difference  between sport hunting and taking shots at animals when they  wander within range but "most  people who shoot animals in  their backyards don't really  understand wildlife."  This spring, Pierce urges residents to be careful around  wildlife raising young. Often  raccoons will try lo nest in  attics and chimneys, he says,  hut il's important not to trap  young raccoons inside by nailing up the hole.  Deer fawns will also often  lay down in grass when their  mothers are off feeding, and  shouldn't be moved, he says.  Going Away  on Vacation?

"Now, since recycling  does lessen Ihe volume of  refuse taken to the dump, we  look to the regional district for  some financial aid."

If you happen lo live on Ihis  road, you'll find lhat waiting to  gel out of your driveway is  always the case.  The days of just pulling out  are definitely bygone, bul that's  progress so I'm told. Unfortunately some, (not all) visitors,  tourists, and local drivers arc  hitting the straight sections and  hitting the gas at the same time.  This is a 30 zone and that  designated speed zone is for a  good reason. Many residents  like to walk, jog and ride bikes  along Ihis road.  Lately I have seen: small cars  roaring along at 50 plus; a pickup truck pass two cars uphill on  a double solid and nearly have a  head-on with an oncoming vehicle; many cars and trucks don'l  even bother to stop at the bottom of the now through road  known as Joe Road; some fine  drivers also like lo see how  close they can come to shaving  the hairs from people walking or  cycling; vehicles roaring past  school children at the slops and  getting tm or off school buses.

Zoning Amendment Bylaw No. 555-61  The purpose of Zoning Amendment Bylaw No. 555-61 is to  rezone a portion of land in the southwest corner of Block 9,  except portions in Explanatory Plan 3285 and Plan 16817,  D.L 689, Plan 2987, measuring approximately 38 metres (125  feet by 99 melres (328 feet) from the existing Singlefamily and  Two-Family Residential Zone 3 |R3) to the (General)  Commercial Zone 1 (C1) as shown on the following map.  The intent of the rezoning is to permit the subject property to be  used by Gibsoni Building Supplies as an extension of its  building materials storage area.  The above is a synopsis of the bylaws and is not deemed to be  an interpretation thereof. Copies of the above bylaws are  available for inspection at the Tow of Gibsons Municipal  Office, 474 South Fletcher Road, Gibsons, B.C.

Winter's done and spring is in  the air. It is a time when everything thai has  been sleeping for the winter slowly wakens,  stretches its tendrils and reaches for lhe sun.  Noi unlike we humans - for we need lhe  warmth and light of Ihe sun to thrive and  grow and feel good too. Suddenly aching  joints disappear, arthritic fingers straighten  out, and the shoulders get broader as wc lift  our faces to the sun and salute spring!  The entire community sends its very best  wishes to Terry Gardiner who is presently in  St. Paul's Hospital. Please get well, Terry  and hurry home - you are missed.  Marmaduke  Marmaduke, the Sandhill Crane who has  heen in residence in our area for some 18  months, has suddenly 'flown the coop' - literally.  It is not known whether disturbances in  the area, eg the falling of trees or smoke  from the slash fires, thai has caused him to  take flight: or if it is just lime to go, as it is  also mating season for Sandhill cranes and  sechelt scenario  the crane was observed doing its mating  dance.  It is thought that Marmaduke was somehow blown off his migratory course, injured  in the process, and landed up in the tree farm  in Davis Bay, where he was fed. As he  regained his strength, the crane began to  wander further afield, some mornings walking boldly down the middle of the road foraging for food on the way. For two weeks he  fed in my neighbour's backyard where I was  able to sneak nut one morning and get some  pictures of him. Slowly he worked his way  down to Mission Point where he made his  permanent home for some eight to 10  months. He was so tame that he would eat  out of people's hands and became a real pet  to one and all.  When the crane took his last flight, he  was seen heading north towards Trail Bay, a  direction he had not been seen taking before.  It is hoped that he is returning to the Arctic  where Sandhill cranes summer. If anyone  sees Marmaduke, would you please call me  so we may keep readers informed as to his  whereabouts?  Thanks to Gwen Abrams of Mission  Point for all the pertinent information on  Marmaduke.  Gwen is a very knowledgeable lady who  is a volunteer with the BC Beached Bird  Survey Program sponsored by the ministry  of environment emergency service branch in  Victoria. Twice a month she walks the beach  between Chapman and Wilson Creeks looking for dead birds, sea life, etc. making  detailed reports when she finds something.  This enables the ministry lo keep track of the  change in patlems of birds and sea life, as  well as being a watchdog for pollution, if  any.  Abrams has emphatically slated that since  the clearing has begun in Wilson Creek the  birds have definitely begun lo decrease in  number in her area which is a real concern to  her.

Driving along or crossing the  street is an adventure and the  project has been hard on local  businesses. At this point, with  the removal of trees that arc  usually in full bloom this time  of year, it seems more like the  Cowrie Street messiflcation project. Change and the discomfort  that often accompanies it, is  'always viewed with great suspicion and sometimes rightly so.  But it's too late for misgivings or complaints so let's hope  the rcuslts are successful and  lhat, in time, Cowrie Street will  no longer be part of the highways sytem but an attractive  area for strolling and shopping.

Finding oul where services arc needed and then finding ways in  which to provide them has been  a priority.  Affordable and accessible  counselling for women who  have experienced violence is  one area where a growing need  was identified. The Women's  Counselling Service, sponsored  by Community Services, has  been established to help fill that  need.  The service is funded by the  Ministry of Women's Equality,  through the Ministry of Health,  Mental Health Services.  What is the service?  Last week I talked to counsellor Marj Brown aboul the  program.  ��� it "We offer free and confidential counselling lo women who  have experienced violence,  whether it's childhood abuse,  sexual assault, or emotional and  physical haltering in lhe home."  Brown said. "Al Ihe moment  it's individual counselling, bul  in lhe future there will he  groups as well.  "We offer a safe environment for women lo talk about  what's happened in their lives,  lo look al lhe effect the violence  has had on them, and decide  whal changes need lo he made,"  Brown continued. "It's not  aboul fixing their relationships,  il's aboul understanding what's  happened so lhal Ihey can make  changes."  Brown's Sechell office is  warm, cozy, wheelchair accessible and she also has a space at  lhe Sechell Indian Band office,  so that the service will be as  accessible as possible for all  women.  How to get service  Women can call the service  themselves, they do not have lo  he referred hy another agency.  Agencies may also refer women  to counselling.  "When people call Ihey may  reach my answering machine,  hui I respond lo calls promptly,"  Brown said.  "If agencies arc leaving a  client number lo call, or if a  woman is leaving a message, I  ask lhat they indicate whether  my calling back will jeopardize  Ihe woman's safely. They may  want to specify a safe lime to  call or leave a safe number  where they can he reached."  During our conversation  Brown carefully avoided Ihe  word victim. "That word connotes powcrlcssness and helplessness, and that's not how I  see these women," Marj said.  "They're survivors. They have  survived incredibly difficult and  traumatic situations. With support and information they can  icam to tap their own strengths  to make changes. They have Ihe  ability to doit.  "Women often don't understand just how strong Ihey really  are. Helping women identify  their own resources allows ihem  to make positive changes in  their lives."  For further information call  Marj Brown al 885-0250.

I'm going to add my voice  (for myself and olher seniors) to  the din.  In November my left shoulder started to bother mc, bul it  wasn't doing it all the time, hut  when it did it brought tears. So,  I applied cold packs. On  December 3 in Ihe early  evening, it went nuts and ice  and Tylenol didn't help so my  husband took mc up to St.  Mary's. The consensus was  probably acute bursitis and I  received an injection of cortisone with analgesic mixed with  il. There was immediate relief.  In January Ihis all started again  with additional pain in the neck,  so again there was another  injection and physiotherapy. Ice  was used for about five treatments and since it didn't seem  lo help, traction and heat with  TFNS and laser was substituted  and this seemed lo help and I  used up my physio benefits.  I know there arc many people like me who have used up  their benefits and can be reimbursed by our additional insurance after wc have paid the cost  up front. Who can afford the  up-front money?

The phone lines at the Coast News'  offices in Gibsons and Sechelt were  flooded with calls Thursday and Friday  following publication of an April  Fool's spoof front page in the April I  Weekender.  More than 100 people phoned in, the  majority desperately seek-   ______  ing the non-existent page  29 to read more about Al  Iar's Howe Sound tunnel  expose. "No page 29 - it's  a cover up!" one reader  charged.  "Al lar should write  more stories," quipped  reassurance. "Your front page is an  April Fool's joke, isn't it?" asked an  uncertain voice.

The prospect of a tunnel linking the Coast to the Lower  Mainland fueled speculation about land  values. One realtor encouraged us to  develop the story, saying numerous  residents had called or dropped by to  inquire about the market impact of a  tunnel.  One irate resident objected to the  story by informing the paper that "land  development is a serious business."  Reaction to the tunnel was clearly  mixed. One caller said: "That's too bad,  I've been waiting for this tunnel for a  long time. Nice joke." But the next:  "I'm so happy there's not going to be a  tunnel. I was going to move."

Economic impact study slated for Tetrahedron  by .lane Seyd  After months of wrangling to get information for Ihe Tetrahedron Local Resource  Use Plan, a socio-economic impact study is  now being done on the area under the  authority of the Protected Areas Strategy.  The Tetrahedron is one of lhe first areas  lo have an impact sludy done under the strategy, which is considering areas for wilderness protection around the province.  Resource Systems Management International has been contracted by the Ministry of  Forests lo complete the study, which will  examine effects of both logging and preservation on jobs, stumpagc paid lo the  province, community economics, local gov-   ,       ���      '��� l    .i.^tir. -am I  eminent goals.toncerns of various interest  groups and wildlife habitat among other  issues.  Marilyn Chisholm-Glover, who is heading the study, recently began talking to community members about Ihe Tetrahedron and  took a helicopter tour of the area last week  with the Ministry of Forests.  So far, discussion about the Tetrahedron  "seems very emotional" on all sides, says  Chisholm-Gover.  The study - expected by the ministry in  about two months - will cost $12,000 to  complete.  Of that, $5,000 will be paid by the Protected Areas Strategy while $7,000 will  come from the district's Forest Service budget.  Meanwhile, committee reports dealing  with jobs, wilderness and water values are  expected within the next two weeks from the  LRUP itself, says chair Barry Miller.  A public review of the group's work over  the past three years is anticipated for mid  June.  At Ihis stage, says Miller, it's more or less  accepted that "agreement on one plan (for  managing the Tetrahedron) is remote."  Most likely, several "options" will be forwarded along with indications of public support to the Protected Areas Strategy for a  final decision, says Miller.

Powell River senior students  have been offered a minimum of  $500 per month by their school  board to cover expenses should  they choose to attend a high  school elsewhere in the  province to complete grade 12.

JWCHT THISNm]  ���_������ Coast News, April 5, 1993  Living in  taxing times  The regional budget deliberations that rocked the  Coast in the past week seemed to overshadow the provincial budget brought down by the NDP government last  Tuesday.  Maybe that was due to the fact there were few surprises left by the time the budget was released - almost all the  principle features had been leaked to the press and filtered through to the public prior to Finance Minister Glen  Clark's speech. Strange that this most secretive of government documents should be treated like another trial  balloon.  The one per cent increase in sales tax, probably the key  budget hike, would have come as no surprise to anyone  tuned to the political or financial pages, much less the  usual sin tax increases on cigarettes, alcohol and gasoline.  While the NDP was able to point the finger at its predecessors in the Socred administration for some of the  excesses of last year's budget debt, there is nowhere to  shift the burden of blame for this year's climbing deficit,  heading for $26.4 billion by the end of this year.  The government's hyperbole about job creation, protecting services, fair taxes and reducing the deficit continues apace with its generous perks and salary rewards  to government employees.  There is something all too familiar about the government's taxation and borrowing method of balancing the  books, one that rapidly turned Ontario's first NDP government into public enemy number one.  The BC NDP has just come off a long stint on the  opposition benches; it needs to rethink its economic strategy if it it doesn't want to return there quickly.  Playing pool politics  The lowly Gibsons Pool, floating from one fiasco to  the next, was dealt yet another setback when the SCRD  finalized its budget last week.  The regional money budgeted for 1993 operation and  maintenance of the pool, $90,000 from areas D, E, and F,  was to go partly toward renovations, with the remainder  .to be used to operate the pool after it reopened in the fall.  That sum, however, never made it into the final budget  . passed at an emergency meeting last Monday.  The fate of the pool is fast becoming a community  debacle, after a series of financial setbacks that have  already forced several revisions to renovation plans and  kept the pool closed for the last six months. The withdrawal of SCRD funds means it's unlikely the pool will  reopen this year. Even more disconcerting is the prospect  of yet another revision of plans to bring the renovation in  on budget.  The 100 per cent withdrawal of funding by the SCRD  has the whiff of punitive political backlash. No discussion to assess the cash needed to keep the project on track  - a simple stroke of the pen has sunk plans into the mire  once more.  The pool is far from adequate to meet the needs of a  growing community this size, but the public and politicians have already committed to a plan that would keep it  operating until such time as the Coast is ready to build a  regional pool under a regional recreation function. A referendum was held to that effect one year ago and all the  participants supported it.  The SCRD has effectively reneged on that commitment.  Health changes  overdue  Three cheers for Elizabeth  Cull! I only wish the ministry of  health would take time to  inform the public about what Ihe  closure of Shaughnessy hospital  means. As it stands, Sunshine  Coast residents who attended  the meeting March 25 are obviously lacking information.  I have worked in Vancouver  hospitals for the last 11 years as  a registered nurse and I am glad  Elizabeth Cull is finally doing  something to revitalize health  care. As a nurse I witnessed  first-hand the waste of health  care dollars by poor hospital  management. Often, yes, the  beds would be full, but unfortunately, one-quarter of patients  occupying beds could have been  more efficiently cared for at  home by community services  and family members. All too  often, the nurses were providing  nothing more than babysitting  services at a very expensive'<)'  hourly rate to the BC taxpayers.   .  By closing Shaughnessy and  relocating the Spinal Chord Unit  to VGH, I hardly doubt if all our  great neurologists and specialists will leave the country or  lose their expertise. Additionally, by providing services in Ihe  Fraser Valley and freeing up the  "400 beds", Sunshine Coasl residents will have ample opportunity to get into Vancouver's  hospitals.  BC is a great place to live,  but unless we want to eliminate  social programs and benefits  such as old age pension, unemployment benefits, subsidized  daycare, etc., we cannot continue to run all of our crown corporations and public institutions at  a loss. Let's support the changes  occurring and build a healthier  province instead of keeping  with tradition and watching our  great public health care system  die.  LESLIE COOPER  Roberts Creek  Teens  treated unfairly  Yesterday, my teenager  bought his first car - a 13-year-  old domestic - for a small  amount of money. When he and  the friend he was buying it from  went to a local agency to obtain  change of ownership and insurance, they were treated like  crooks trying to 'get away with  something.'  Needless to say, they were  disgusted that they had been  prejudged, and have vowed not  to go back to these insurance  agents for anything. It is unfortunate that their honesty has  been questioned because they  now feel that they have been  discriminated against as  teenagers. As a parent, I signed  the transfer papers and knew  that the purchase amount was  correct. I might also add that  this was not the Autoplan ICBC  office in Lower Gibsons.  Is it too much to expect  teenagers to be treated as courteously as adults, instead of  automatically tarring them with  the same brush as those who  receive notoriety in the largely  negative reporting of today's  media? If so, we will be contributing to the raising of a generation of cynical and rude  human beings.  JOSEPHINE HAMMOND  Gibsons  Capitalist greed  robbing our senses  The provincial budget came  down last week and the morning  CBC call-in show sounded like  a funeral I There was an overwhelming gnashing of teeth and  the sound of the banshie was  loud and clear from the ranks of  those that 'have'.  Their idea of a tight budgei,  which they all agree has to be, is  one of cuts in services to the  working class, or in their words,  the masses.  I wonder how many people  in BC listened to a program  entitled Ideas, 9 pm each night  this week on CBC radio, with a  most insightful, open look at  economics and capitalist history  letters welcome  We welcome letters to the editor on matters of public  interest. However, we reserve the right to edit  submissions for brevity, clarity and legality. Please mail  your letters to:  The Editor  Sunshine Coast New*  Box 68  Sechelt, B.C.  V0N3A0  and its worth, both negative and  positive. When looked at  through the eyes of a historian,  it's clear that capitalism is the  single most destructive trait that  mankind has ever developed.  If I have any power to look  into the future, based on capitalism's progress through history,  it's bound to fail at a price  humankind may not be able lo  pay, not in capital dollars, but in  tragic human suffering by the  so-called masses, lo support a  system lhat is becoming so top  heavy that it's already starting  to collapse. Because its fundamental basic principle is to  accumulate all the wealth that  this world has, into a few, if not  single control.  Because Ihe capital engine is  becoming self-consuming,  because we are already running  out of raw materials needed lo  turn into 'gold'. They, the capitalists are, (I think) the last  alchemists, and even their  apparent success is turning out  to be an illusion as in the pasl.  What the hell would be the  worth of turning all of nature's  resources into'gold'?  When I think of the word  capitalism, I think of another  word - greed! Whal annoys me  Ihe most is the small business  person who has been hoodwinked into believing lhat capitalism is the son of God, God  being Ihe almighty dollar, who  is standing forth as a voice in  the wilderness and saying it as it  is. What's worse is there are  Ihose out there saying it and  nobody wants to listen.  When will we come to our  senses? One question mark for  everyone who believes in the  false God $$$ - I put the question, "is there a seconder?"  DAVID BARTON  Sechelt  Leadership is knowing what to do and how to do it  The subject of leadership is high on the list of  conversation pieces these days. Not only are Canadians facing a contest to replace Brian Mulroney,  the winner of which automatically becomes Prime  Minister of the country, but in BC the party of  opposition is having a full-scale leadership convention.  All candidates will seek to persuade voters they  are worthy to play this important role. They will  strut and pontificate and gesticulate and travel tirelessly for the right to lead their respective political  parties into what they assure us will be the dawn of  a new day.  We must fight ennui and cynicism, my friends,  for in truth leadership does make a difference. We  recognize it when by some strange alchemy or historic mischance something bubbles to the top of  the political vat which is more than scum. But, oh  the distance between the preening and the performance, between the ego and achievement.  Tbe successors to Brian Mulroney as leader of  the country and Gordon Wilson as leader of the  opposition in British Columbia will not, of course,  be chosen by thee and me, dear reader, but our  lives will be affected by the choices made nonetheless.  We should give some thought to what constitutes good leadership. We have to do this for our-  musings  John burnside  selves. I'm afraid we can't expect the candidates to  do it for us.  Mulroney, for example, in his speech announcing his resignation, put the gloss on what must  surely be seen as a lacklustre term in office by  pointing proudly to the fact that he has been Prime  Minister longer than any Conservative in his lifetime; he pointed to the fact that he had maintained  caucus solidarity and to the fact that the coffers of  the Conservative party are full to overflowing.  We must ask ourselves if clinging to office,  keeping your followers clinging to you, and raising  lots of money so you can repeat the performance is  enough.  If it isn't, and tbe fates forgive anyone other  than Brian Mulroney who thinks it is, then what do  we want in our political leaders?  One of the most damaging criticisms made of  former president George Bush in last fall's American election was that he made it plain he wanted to  be president again, but never why. He wanted to  be, it seemed, but not to do.  This is not a bad stalling point for our cogitations on leadership. Even if we don't get to make  the choice we should be ready with an opinion  about the candidates and to communicate it to  those who will choose. The candidate must after all  be electable in the election to follow.  There is a bit of a drawback facing the Conservative cabinet ministers who seek to replace Mulroney. It is the very issue of solidarity Mulroney  boasted of in resigning.  Everyone who has sat around the cabinet table  has been loyal to the most unpopular Prime Minister in this century. The challenge facing all of them  is how to persuade us they have something in mind  they want to do.  "Don't read my lips," said Bill Clinton during  the American campaign," read my plan." As President he is winning relatively favourable reviews  because he actually does seem to have a plan, to  have some idea of what he is getting elected leader  to do.  Kim Campbell, Don Mazankowski, Jean  Charest or anyone else in the race for Mulroney's  job should be able to offer us a vision of what  Canada needs to do to improve its economy and  the lol of its people in the last years of this century.  They will have to reconcile a sense of new purpose  and drive with their loyalty to the previous leader.  A considerable challenge!  It's hard to say anything specific about the  provincial Liberals. They are so new on the provincial scene and the shenanigans involving Gordon  Wilson have effectively kept them from developing any cohesive identity.  They never have told us what kind of vision  they had for BC. Other than they claim to be nicer  free enterprisers than the discredited Socreds, we  know nothing about them.  Gordon Wilson, in particular, should persuade  us that his is not just a lust for power or a messianic complex. To win back the leadership he has  thrown away he should convey a comprehensive  and persuasive sense of the future of British  Columbia. Unlike Clinton, Wilson bas no extensive background in government administration to  counterbalance the astonishing lack of judgment he  has already shown.  To want to lead is not enough. There must be  more than a hunger for power. Our leaders should  persuade us they do not seek power for its own  sake, but have an idea what they want to accomplish and, better yet, how to accomplish it  COAST^NEWS  Sobtcrlptjoe, 1,1m h,  tm Coast Nam or tm Wmlrmdm:  Canada: 1 year ��� $35 ��� $2.45 CST - $37.45  6months. ��20.$I.40CST-$21.40  a*a*a-a>K 1 yaw. $40(NoGST)  Raj.

In her first public showing,  local potter Lisa Blackwcll's  Turtle Island Pot Prints are well  displayed against the backdrop  i of delicate anlique quills, donated for public viewing courtesy  of the Sunshine Coast Quitter's  Guild.  The works combine to  expose a decidedly feminine  sense which blends bolh utility  and an forms handed down  through generations.  Blackwcll's pottery is dark,  smooth and mysterious as a  whisper; rounded wilh lines of  feminine beauty; rich in ancient  charm.  Complementary lo the  show's title, Turtle Island, Ihe  ancient native name of North  America, many of lhe pols are  graced with simplistic picto-  graphic designs which capture  the spirit of the bird, fish, reptile  and mammal and sew them into  the clay.  Bach item is liandhuilt, burnished with polished gem  stones, then fired in wood dust.  The result, the artist explains,  is "a rich, complex colouration  reminiscent of their origins -  earth, tire and spirit."  In contrast and balance, the  pottery is framed by the vivid  colours of the hanging quilts.

The title Canadian Citizen is shared by over 27 million people,  some of whom have been Canadian since birth and others who have  fought for or chosen the right and the honour. "I chose to be a Canadian citizen," says Elphinstone school principal Martyn Wilson. "Living in Canada gives me the right to live in what is probably the most  civilized country in the world. Canadians generally treat other human  beings with the respect that all people deserve."  Citizenship is a topic that raises strong feelings for many Canadians. "My citizenship means a lot to me," says Lenora Joe. "I appreciate what I have where I live and am thankful for day-to-day luxuries  such as breakfast in the morning and dinner at night. Luxuries many  countries are without."  To some citizens of this country Ihe word Canadian seems to be  interchangeable with the word freedom. "Being Canadian means that  I am free lo be whoever I want to be," says sludent Zoe Sanborn.  Many others responded similarly. "Canada gives me the freedom  of thought. I am also able to live where I want, associate with who I  want, own Ihe property I live on and travel the world receiving  respect and hospitality that is given lo Canadians worldwide," said  Elphinstone social studies teacher Robin Helhey.  All those asked about their Canadian Citizenship responded with  pride and thankfulness to live in this greal country.

At a committee  meeting last week Fred Inglis  spoke on behalf of the society  and asked for council's support.  The hall was built with a stage  and throughout the 1930s  became the centre of social  activity in the area being used  . for everything from dramatic  performances to basketball  games.  Roberts Creek Legion honoured Phil Sheridan at a 'roast'  on March 27, a festival of all  things Irish: poetry, songs, oratory, humour, and yes some  sentimentality.  10 YEARS AGO  Plans to establish an unemployment action centre on the  Sunshine Coast are well underway after a meeting last week of  representatives from the Joint  Council of Unions and volunteers from the ranks of the  i unemployed. With unemploy-  i me-S' ?'an esl'ma(ed 36 percent  ��� on the Coast, it was recogmfeiT  that an action centre here could  provide valuable services.  15 YEARS AGO  Rick Scott and Joe Mock, the  magical musical duo who are  the Pied Pear of Pied Pumpkin  will be hosting another dance in  the Egmont Community Centre  on Friday evening.

Wilson appeared Sunday before a  meeting with members of his riding association on the Sunshine Coast looking relaxed, outlining his position on several  important issues.  "I have never considered resigning as MLA. I don't believe  1 have done anything to make me unfit for public office," the  embattled MLA said. "This has been a trying and difficult time  for me. I think there should be much firmer lines between private life, public life and public office.  "I am gratified with the level of support I've had locally and  from across the country. There has been no palace coup. Sixteen members of the caucus can't override the       constitution of the party ... They are trying to  rewrite the constitution without lhe members  They cannot rule by executive fiat."  new. The people of BC will have heard it all. The budget is  compromised already. If anyone profits from these "leaks" the  Minister of Finance should resign.  "We are looking at a major tax assault. A one cent increase  in sale tax, an increase in the gasoline tax, further taxes on professional services. In every part of BC the people aren't going  to sit and take it anymore."  Wilson was also critical of the new Crown corporation,  Build BC, which he said is going to provide capital infrastructure financing for things like highways, through a gas tax, federal social services payments, and special levies like toll roads.  "We've seen pavement politics before in this province. They  should have called it Build BC for the NDP. This Crown corporation is just one more way to launder public money."           Wilson commented on the 11 per cent  decrease in provincial grant funding to the Sun-  The people o/BC     shine Coasl Resional Dis,riet  .,  .._.   i It's just another example of off-loading  Wilson said he believes Pred Gingel is don't Want personality debt on to the shoulders of local governments  doing a reasonable job as opposition leader.  "You can't run a caucus like an Israeli Kibbutz. You can't have consensus on every  issue. If they don't like your decisions...that's  one thing, when you walk oul that door, you  must be united. *~~~������������"  "Outside a couple of ridings, most of the liberals have been  with the party for less than two years. They are loyal to their  MLA, not to the party. If an MLA is out of line it's up to the  president's councils of the riding associations to bring them  into line. Party loyalty is the key. There is a different coalition  with different desires out there. I don't use the term conspiracy.  This is just BC politics., Wilson said. "The people of BC don't  want personality politics, they want intelligent debate."  Wilson continued, "The NDP have discipline like you  wouldn't believe. There is nothing democratic about that party.  When Clark stands up they all stand. When Sihota snaps, Ihey  do whatever he tells them to. We're not like this. We've got 16  free-minded people. I'm learning, we're all learning. This is the  product of being a very young party."  Wilson excoriated Finance Minister Glen Clark over the yet-  to-be-released budget. "I'm alarmed at such prolific leaks. We  have a Minister of Finance who is packing a budget in a well  constructed sieve which is leaking on a day to day basis. He's  like a baker carrying flour in a sieve.  "By the time he goes to make the cake, there isn't anything  left. When the budget is released, it won't contain anything  politics, they want  intelligent debate'  - Gordon Wilson  What is means is there are going to be fewer  services."  Questions from the floor about the tenure of  local tree farm licences aroused Wilson's frustration. "You have local people who are really  "���-******���*~ working on solving issues in the Tetrahedron  and the Caren Range, and CORE doesn't have the mandate to  implement those recommendations."  Wilson expressed serious concerns about locked out teachers  in the Powell River school district, and the economic assaults  that community is undergoing as a result of downsizing at the  MacMillan Bloedel mill.  Former SCRD director Cy O'Leary asked Wilson about the  need for jobs in the local area. O'Leary suggested that unem- '  ployment rates on the Sunshine Coast were closer to 25 per  cent than the 14 per cent suggested by the federal government.  O'Leary felt that residential housing construction was saving  the Sunshine Coast from catastrophic unemployment. Wilson  said he would look at those numbers.  In discussing the needs for a late night ferry sailing, Wilson  said he'd had discussions with the minister and that a possible  solution with the marine workers union was being discussed.  "It isn't fair to Ihe people of the Sunshine Coast to just roll up  the highway every night at 8:20."  The Federal Aboriginal Fisheries strategy, entrepreneurial  immigration, and the condition of the unfinished Gibsons  Bypass were also discussed.  Community health  directors appointed  Six newly appointed executive directors will assist  communities in developing local initiatives for the New  Directions for a Healthy British Columbia strategy.  Based in offices throughout the province, the six executive directors will tie i3pons'il)fe7or" helgHlethng community awareness and knowledge of health issues, bringing community members and health professionals together to plan local health strategies and develop Community  Health Councils.  Said Health Minister Elizabeth Cull: "The new directors will not be program administrators but facilitators  whose primary role is to help communities assume greater  responsibility for bringing health services closer to home,  enhancing public participation and expanding local decision-making." She said the positions are temporary and  will end when the local communities assume control of  the process.  Executive director for the Sunshine Coast and Vancouver Island will be John Mullin, whose office will be in  Nanaimo.

The small classrooms are sel  back across a vast green playground, a healthy distance from  the quiet road the property  neighbours.  The children are in school  now, so all is slill in the yard.  The only sound comes from Ihe  little creek which runs through  the property and from the  waves lapping up on the shores  of the nearby beach.  About a dozen small children can be seen through a  large glass window of a classroom, seated in a semi-circle in  front of a chalk board.  Class is in session - the  teacher is asking questions,  pointing to the child who's  hand is raised - all are listening,  smiling.  Inside the doors, the silence  of the schixil yard is broken by  Ihe sound of human voices.  "Quel cst le premier jour de  la scmaine," asks teacher Carole Hartley to her sludenis.  "Dimanchc," a little voice  speaks out.  "Et quel est le qualricmc  jour de la scmaine," the teacher  asks. A small pause, then Ihe  hands wave in the air: "Mercrc-  di."  Passing through to the hack  of the building, the older children chatter in excited tones  about going down In llie beach.  It's a sunny day and Ihey plan  lo gather rocks and water and  lulk about Ihings scientific - in  French - wilh their teacher Luc  Morisscllc.  It's not French class for  these kids. It's just an ordinary  school day. L'Ecole passc-  Parlout is an independent primary French Immersion schtxil  where students arc taught lhe  DC schtxil curriculum hy qualified BC teachers - the only difference is that classes are  entirely taught "en Francais."  For Allison Payne, the  opportunity to learn a different  language al school is one she  nnd her husband chose mil to  miss oul on for their children.  Two of her children presently attend the schixil and speak,  listen and write French wilh the  same case Ihey exhibit in  English.  "Because they're younger,  Ihey pick il up faster and they  develop belter accents," Payne  said.  She added that French  Immersion can present some  difficulties for a child for the  firsl few months. They can  become exhausted hy the con-  ccnlralcd effort of having In  learn a new language. Bul "hy  the end of the year Ihey arc  speaking French," she said.  In ils third year of operation,  L'Ecole Passe Purloin runs independent lo the regular school  district. The schixil was a parent-initialed project, implemented when the district schtxil  board discontinued the primary  French Immersion program in  the regular schools.  Parents pay a fee of between  $90 and $180 per monlh for  their children to attend classes.  The schtxil also receives partial  funding under the provincial  education program.  Classes are small at present -  with only 22 children enrolled  at the school. Payne said the  school could accept up to .IS  students.  Presently the school educates children in kindergarten  up to grade three, but that may  change, Payne said, depending  on whether or not the school  board approves an intermediate  French Immersion program  presently in the works - lhat  decision will not be made final  by the board until April 13.  k  mm
