 LEGISLATIVE UBRARV  PariUmentBuil^ U<\  Victoria, B.C. V8V i.v��  50 cents per copy on newsstands  COAST^NF.WS  ' on newsstands laMULBiilWlll' ^H'EHj February 22,1993 ^  February 22,1993 Volume 47 Issue 8  Personal strife  drives Wilson  from leadership  by Jane Seyd  Liberal leader and Sunshine  Coast MLA Gordon Wilsoti said  Friday he is stepping aside from  leadership of the official opposition in the province in order to  attend to personal problems.  But he denied the move  means he's finished either as Ihe  Liberal leader or as a politician.  "It certainly doesn't signal  the end of my political career,"  said Wilson in a telephone interview Fri-       day.  "The caucus had  suggested my private  life compromised  their ability to function as an effective  opposition. I said if  that was the problem, I'd remove that  obstacle until such  time as I get person-       al matters resolved  to the point that I can keep them  off the front page of the paper."  Wilson said he hasn't  stepped down as Liberal leader:  "That is something only the  membership can take away from  me or I can give up through resignation. Neither has occurred."  He added that under the Liberal party constitution, it is now  too late to call a leadership convention for the end of April,  although a usual ballot on  whether members wanl��leadership review will be held at the  Liberal convention.  Wilson attributed recent  problems, including media  attention surrounding his close  friendship with fellow Liberal  and former house leader Judi  Tyabji, to a coalition of forces  both within and outside the  party who are trying to oust him  as leader.  "There's no doubl there are  forces at work in the province to  bring about a coalition and they  saw me as a direct impediment  to the coalition. They knew they  'It certainly  doesn't signal  the end of  my political  career'  - Gordon Wilson  would not get co-operation from  me on those grounds and so  they've essentially thought  'Let's assassinate the guy' and  that's what they're attempting to  do."  For now Ihe Liberals' deputy  leader, Fred Gingell, will take  on the duties of leader of the  opposition, said Wilson.  Wilson's comments came  after 12 members of the Liberal  caucus met in Van-    couver Friday. Wilson, who was in  Powell River and did  not attend the meeting, said his absence  was "purely circumstantial."  The comments  also came after contradictory reports  from Wilson and his       wife Elizabeth Wilson over the possibility of an impending marital  separation.  On Friday, Wilson said he  was angry aboul the intense  examination of his personal life  by the media and resents Ihe  implication that he has not been  telling the truth.  "If there's a difference in  what is said one of the two parties is not being entirely honest," said Wilson.  "Quite frankly if I become a  little-Wt-iesentful it would  immediately be deemed that I'm  the one that isn't being  forthright."  "The fact of the matter is that  under the Family Relations Act,  there will at some point be a  writ filed in court and that will  spell out what goes on."  Wilson said he slill feels he  has the strong support of his  constituents.  "I don't think the vast majority of British Columbians are  interested (in my private life), or  feel it's of any consequence or  significant in any way."  113     Tourists find  services wanting  Jim Majcher, director of community and regional planning for  the Ministry of Tourism and Culture, makes his points during a  chamber address Thursday. Joel Johnstone photo  by Darah Hansen  Even though tourists are  generally happy wilh the sights  and services offered on the  Sunshine Coast, there's still  plenty of potential in terms of  luring in more dollars, says a  new survey released by the  Sechell and District Chamber of  Commerce.  Entitled the 1992 Sunshine  Coast Visitors Survey, the  report details the results of a  questionnaire answered by 4,  348 non-residents of the Coast  visiting between the        months of June and  October of last year.  And it appears  many of visitors say  they want more services made available to them.  Among the suggestions made were  improved ferry services; designated  bicycle lanes and  organized hiking tours; more  entertainment for adults and  children including amusement  paiks, mini-golf attractions and  go-kart facilities; more, higher  quality, international and diversified shops; better quality  hotels and motels; fine restaurants and a wider variety of  dishes served; and clean-up and  development of accessible  beaches.  Just 25.7 per cent of questionnaire respondents said what  they enjoyed most during their  visll to the Coast weie, the services available and the friendliness of the residents, the survey  reports.  The majority cited the  scenery as they're main source  of enjoyment, 42.4 per cent  named the weather, 27.3 per  cent said it was the beaches.  And though respondents  answers were overwhelmingly  positive on rating their experience the Coast at it's present  level of development, and further gave it high marks as a  vacation area, the survey says  'Poor views  from the  highway and  poor signage  were also  listed as  concerns'  there are indications that  improvements could be made to  existing services.  The primary deterrent to  travel to the Coast is the present  ferry service, the report states.  Schedules, costs and line ups  were reported as requiring  extensive improvement, making  up 58.3 per cent of the responses under the heading "least  liked aspects."  Furthermore, poor road conditions, the general layout of  the highway, poor views from        trie highway and poor  signage were also  listed as concerns,  though the report  notes these concerns  as making up only a  small percentage.  The majority of  respondents, 59.9 per  cent, rated scenery  on the highways as  being good to excel-  lent.  Again, making up a minority  percentage of features thought  Jacking on the Coast was the  lack or nonexistence of entertainment for both children and  adults in the evening, as well as  poor tourist attractions.  Present tourist attractions  and entertainment received the  majority of fair to good ratings,  the report says, adding "perhaps  a result of the limited development of attractions and organized indoor/outdoor entertainment in the region."  As to campground and  hotel/motel accommodations,  low ratings were recorded. The  report interprets this as a window of opportunity for  improvement.  For campgrounds it says,  "improved cleanliness, organization and more quality," could  be required. While for hotels  and motels, "limited development in this sector is a key factor here...'designation' hotels  and resorts would be well  received."  turn to page 2  19  13  peee*  '*  17  Sechelt official community plan gathering momentum  by Stuart Burnside  Work on Sechelt's official community  plan continues to pick up speed District  of Sechelt Planner Rob Buchan says he's  pleased with progress.  Buchan has over the past couple of  months been holding OCP meetings with  individual communities within the district  municipality.  The goal is to make the various communities aware of what is involved in the  OCP process and let residents know how  they can participate.  During the meetings, Buchan has been  soliciting names of people interested in  joining the eventual municipal OCP com  mittee, which will perform the actual  work on the OCP.  "Council has yet to decide the actual  make up of (that committee)," Buchan  said, "but right now there is a list of 43  names of interested individuals."  He said Sechelt council will have the  job of whittling down the list of names to  form the OCP committee, adding that the  committee would include at least one representative from each municipal community.  "Aside from having a member from  the various communities," Buchan said,  "council has yet to set a ceiling on the  number of people who will be involved.  But I don't see a problem with having a  good number of people on the committee.  As long as the interest is there, I find it  encouraging."  He said he was also pushing to have a  representative from the Sechelt Indian  Band on the committee.  "We have this unique situation (with  the band) in which we have two municipalities sharing the same community,"  Buchan said.  "And I think it's important they have a  say in Sechelt's planning."  Buchan said regardless of the eventual  make up of the committee, each community group, including one recently made  up to represent Sechelt's downtown core,  will work on its own goals and objectives  as part of overall OCP planning.  While Buchan said there was no set  time frame for establishing the OCP committee, or for the completing the planning  work, he is looking to have a draft of the  OCP ready by the fall.  "I certainly don't want to rush this veiy  important document," Buchan said. "But I  expect the committee to be set up by  March and I'm looking to being able to  present council with a first draft by  September or October.  "I'm certainly willing to see it take  longer if more time is needed."  Tree planter fortunes sinking in economic sands  port Iwo of a series  by Darah Hansen  The jury isn't in just yet on  who or what will suffer the most  as a result of the downturn in  this year's tree planting market  In the short term, almost certainly, the tree planting contractor will feel the pinch of  increased competition in a  decreasing market In turn, the  tree planter will also suffer as  his or her hard work will now  earn less money.  But the long-term effects on  the industry ai a whole have yet  to be determined.  One possible concern noted  by long-time contractor Tony  Greenfield of Whiskeyjack  Reforestation Ltd., in Sechelt is  maintaining the future quality of  the trees planted.  "I guess the thing in the  industry this year is that there  are going to be lots of greenhorns making very, very poor  money," says Greenfield, as a  result of low bids made by contractors. And that, he said, could  have certain costs for everyone.  "It's been proven a thousand  times that if you try  planted as quickly as possible."  Dirk Brinkman, part-owner  of one of BC's largest reforestation companies, Brinkman and  Associates, agrees. "From whal   _ _...,___,   we see (the low bids)  to plant trees with "There are going create a lot of abuse  inexperienced work-     to be lots of     of the tree and of ,he  greenhorns  making very,  very poor  ers you re not going  to get a very good  job," he says.  There are standards that must be  adhered to, he says.  All contracting companies are subject to scrutiny by  the Ministry of Forests as to  how, where and what trees are  planted. However, Greenfield  says, acceptable planting is not  the only issue when considering  the health of the tree - time is  also of the essence.  "A good crew might do the  job in one week while a green  crew might take three weeks,"  he said. "The trees should be  money  worker."  But, he adds  some companies  aren't affected quite  as dramatically as  others. In particular,  those companies that  are well established and have  developed steady relationships  with companies re-sponsible for  much of the reforestation.  "We have long-term relationships (with forest companies)  where we have some reasonable  expectations as long as we're  doing a cost competitive,  acceptable job... We get to come  back," Brinkman says.  The process is called selec  tive tendering, where only two  or three contractors are invited  to compete for a contract offered  by the licencee.  "And if somebody's (prices  are) high maybe they're out of  the game for the year, but  they're back in next year.  "You're pretty sure to get  some work," he says.  By contrast, open tendering  situations, mainly provincial  forestry contracts, can draw up  to 40 contractors out to a viewing, each one entering a bid.  In these situations, Brinkman  says, it becomes difficult to get  work and bids that are won end  up going at extremely low  prices.  Mark Scott, resource officer  in charge of silviculture for the  local forestry district, says it is  unlikely this is a widespread  problem even among open tenders.  turn to page 3  ssjslSfiSPo  ���um...

School District No. 46  Sunshine Coast  by Darah Hansen  The Sechelt RCMP detachment is requesting the public's  assistance in ihe search for a  missing Vancouver man.  Richard Dale ___  Beaudoin, 39, was  last heard from  December 29, 1991  while in Pender Harbour. A day later he  was seen by residents  'He was seen by  residents in  Egmont  canoeing alone  in Egmonl canoeing Up Sechelt Inlet   bushy red hair and  alone up Sechell Inlet    ���������������������~   a beard. He is esti-  suspect he is dead.  The weather was stormy the  night of Beaudoin's disappearance, Reid said, and as he was  alone with a canoe that was  ____________   quite heavily laden  down with goods,  "he could have run  into trouble."  Beaudoin is  described as a  white male with  to an unknown destination.  To dale, intensive searches  made by air, water and land  have failed to uncover any clues  as lo Beaudoin's whereabouts,  said Staff Sergeant Cam Reid.  And although Beaudoin was  reported lo be an experienced  boater and a non-drinker, Reid  said because of Ihe length of  lime he has been missing,.police  mated to be 185 to 191 cm (6'I  to 6'3) in height, weighing 77 to  86 kgs( 170 to 190 lbs).  Beaudoin was travelling in a  14-foot red or orange square  stern canoe. People who have  any information in regards to  Beaudoin are asked to call any  nearby detachment of the  RCMP, police agency or the  Canadian Coast Guard.

Hans Ounpuu, RR2, S7, C26,  Cibsons, BC VON 1V0 �� Fax: (604) 886-4623  by Charles Hart  Not without reservations,  Gibsons councillors have decided to support a regional district  plan to share in funding the  Sunshine Coast Arena.  Cllr. Ted Hume voiced the  strongest objection to a proposed formula that would tax  residents based on the assessed  value of improvements (housing), but exclude owners of  undeveloped land. Hume said he  believes it is unfair for owners  of vacant land not to pay a share  of the cost, and at one point  moved to have the whole discussion tabled for more study.  Mayor Eric Small, the town's  representative to the SCRD, said  he also believes the formula is  less than ideal, but believes it is  a good first step and more likely  to succeed with voters when the  proposition goes to referendum.  "It's based on the idea the  unimproved lot onwers would  not likely be using the arena,"  he explained.  Small said in his view the;  formula has two shortcoming!  ftrct, lhat the owners of undevi  oped land will see a rise in val  ���without paying for better ser  vices "and facilities on the Coast.  and second, that Ihey will still  be able to vote in the referendum and not pay the bill.  In spite of these deficiencies,  Small said he "reluctantly supports" the proposal as a gesture  of goodwill toward a Coast-  wide recreation function.  Hume, who eventually supported the proposal, expressed  doubts that Coast-wide recreation would ever come to  fruition. "It keeps coming up  Ihel  Starting MARCH 2  NEW HOURS  For  Davis Bay-Wilson Creek  LIBRARY  (5123 Davis Bay Road)  Tuesday   6 - 7:30 pm  Friday    2 ��� 4 pm  Saturday    10 am - 4 pm  GOES ON SALE  Hunter Douglas Authorized  Manufacturer's Sale  .Save 40%  en Minds  until Feb. 28!

Recognising that Sechelt  needs help in paying the costs of  maintaining and operating the  arena, Hume said he was skeptical of a step-by-step approach  toward a unified recreation  function. "Why don't we get  into a recreation function immediately," he said, "instead of  hoping we'll get into it."  Both councillors Ed Steeves  and Walter Bradshaw favoured  proceeding with the formula in  the interests of seeing some  progress toward sharing costs.  Steeves noted he fell comfortable with giving his support  since the whole issue will have  to go to a referendum in any  case.  About half the assessed  value of Gibsons property is  attributable to improvements  ($125 million), Small said.  Sechelt also voices displeasure  Sechelt council is less ecstatic over a regional  district's approach to a Coast-wide referendum on  arena funding, but councillors say they will take  what they can get.  The regional district directors decided last week  the referendum would be held on an area-by-area  basis, which would allow any given area to opt out.'  "I have a problem with this, "MacLarty said,  "because people from all the area use the arena.  And they should help pay for it."  It was noted though that when the referendum is  completed, an arena commission would need to be  set up which could look into establishing a tiered  admission system for use the of arena. "Then the  areas that don't want to pay (through referendum)  would be charged a higher rate," MacLarty said.  The tiered system could also be applied to the  Sechelt Indian Government District (SIGD), whicrf'  announced that it would not participate in the  Coast-wide vote.  "However, lhe (SIGD) said Ihey would consider  contributing (to the function after the referendum  is completed)," councillor Art Whistler noted.  Another contentious point for council was the  SCRD's approach to taxation for the facility.  The regional board agreed to that the areas  which voted to help fund the arena would be taxed  at 14 cents per $1,000 of assessed value on  improvements to property alone. Sechelt council  had requested the taxation be done at a lower rate  but for all property, even that which is undeveloped.  "The owners of undeveloped property can still  vote (in the referendum) MacLarty said, "but they  i don'l have any stake in the outcome. ThaUsn't fair  to those who 6wri Mofttft *'  Tourism ministry advocates public  consultation before making changes  from page 1  The survey later notes that  "perhaps offsetting the main  least liked feature" is the  response of 46.4 per cent to the  'nothing in particular' component of this question.  Almost half of the respondents indicated there was nothing they particularly disliked  about the Sunshine Coast.  "Again, this is a positive  response," the survey says, "but  should not detract tourism operators from responding to areas  requiring attention."  Speaking at a Wednesday  meeting of members from both  the Sechelt and Gibsons chambers, off-Coast business representatives, and members of local  governments, the director of  community and regional planning under the Ministry of  Tourism and Culture, Jim  Majcher, cautioned individuals  to consult heavily with the public before going ahead with any  plans to develop the tourist  industry on the Coast.

In his 28 years experience in  dealing with community development, Majcher said he's seen  resentment grow between business and residents in many communities facing increasing  tourism.  "The bottom line is, you are  hosts and many residents don't  want to be hosts," he said.  People wony, he said, about  the possible influx of "cheap,  tacky" tourist draws and an  increase in personal taxes.  But, he added, the main issue  of concern when tourism is  mentioned is the possible reduction in the present quality of life.  "The last thing they want is  more urban sprawl," he said.  Make residents aware of  what ideas there are, Majcher  said.  "(Let them know) this project is good not because we  want to line our pockets, but  because we want to maintain the  quality of life."

I said it was a large  subject 1 knew very little about.  She said that most laymen knew  very little about it, but that all of  us must now get involved with  il, with the current and growing  problems of health care.  It was not only a medical  problem, vital as that might be,  but it was the number one economic problem the country had  on its plate.  I said well and good, but I  write a general 800-word bit  here and beat no drums, or very  few. How would I anyway  approach the subject of health  care?  Bul, she said, Ihere is perhaps  no subject more general and the  basic thing, the thing wc must  all hang on to, is the simplest  thing: thai regardless of political  and professional mops and  mows, the best possible health  care must remain available to  all, rich and poor.  Well I said, sure. But 1 come  along as a layman, perhaps in  this case the ultimate layman,  and I have to be aware that there  are large questions on lhat horizon there. Questions thai I can't  begin to answer or even ask  properly. Like aboul the costs.  Like about these serious and  informed experts all over the  place who are now telling us  lhat the costs of health care are  'galloping'?  That's just it, she said. That's  what they're all saying. And  what is the first thing they will  do? Start nibbling away al lhe  services they make available to  the people who can't pay the  extras. This is exactly why, she  said leaning forward like Charlotte Corday passing the revolutionary message, we must all  stand firm now and let ourselves  be heard.  Yes, 1 said, of course. Still...  Still what? she said. Well, I said,  speaking as a layman... Look  she said, what is all this layman  crap? It looks to me as if you're  determined lo be some sort of  second-class citizen.  And this is simply not the  case. What is the case, however,  is that universal health care,  regardless of heallh plan, is primarily threatened today by Ihe  shocking escalation of lhe costs  of il all and il is impossible not  lo feel lhat the layman/professional is going to be a factor, al  least in the discussion of it.  What is at the bottom of  these so steeply rising expenses?  There, you see, is a question thai  would probably only be asked  by a layman. The profession, at  least since the days when barbers were doing some of Ihe  work, has been intent on  improving year to year all medical services across the board.  The lifetimes of dedicated  research are quite possibly  incalculable. Every year, every  month something belter or  something quite new comes out.  Bach trails a price tag to pay for  this development.  But there it is now, the slate  of the art and any ailing citizen  might be held to have a right to  il. Life surely is more important  than money. There can come a  time, however, lhat might have  been suspected or even predicted at any time over the past couple of decades anyway, when  letters  in a nutshell  the fact lhat money is finite, that  is to say there is really only so  much of it, is going to have to  come to bear. What then?  I would say, as a layman, that  this time is now. President Clinton for example, placing his  upbeat and optimistic plans  before Congress, made it abundantly clear that the best that  could be done with universal  medicare was among his top priorities. Nonetheless, in this case,  he had to introduce a word of  caution, a word in fact, of doubt.  He had a projection thai in the-  four years of his term the costs  of health care could surpass 60  per cent of Ihe entire budget. It  hung there that the rising costs  could actually prove prohibitive.  The decisions that loom, that  are in fact there on our doorstep,  are not decisions thai will be  made by the profession. They  arc decisions that will have to be  made by the layman. Recognizing oneself as a layman is  maybe a forward step on this  way.  I do not feel a layman in relation to all our professions. The  teachers for example, were legislated back in '44 (when everyone was away al war), but I  have never felt in Ihe least a layman with anything to do with  education.  stuart nutter  Medicine though is different.  The problems that really do confront us today may be as thorny  as any that have ever faced society. We need the strongest possible understanding between lay  people and the profession.

Wrong to declare  war on cigarettes  With the papers filled with  stories of theft of cigarettes and  smuggling over the border, etc.,  brings to mind the story of my  father. My uncle, dad's brother,  was a veteran of the Boer War'  and was given a tract of land in  Saskatchewan as compensation  for his services in South Africa.  He persuaded dad to go west  with him.  Dad packed up his family of  four kids and mother and filed  on a piece of land in  Saskatchewan. The land was  poor and dad went broke.  It wasn't until 30 years later  that he had enough money lo  take mother back to visit Nova  Scotia only to find lhat all his  old friends and buddies had big  homes, big cars and big boats.  When dad asked how this all  happened he was told thai during prohibition all the fish boals  quit fishing and went to the  French islands of St. Pierre and  Miquelon, picked up loads of  whiskey, took it lo the US east  coast where the whiskey was  picked up by fast rum runners  and into New York or other  cities. They all made fortunes.  The US eventually saw the  error of its ways, did away with  prohibition and made liquor  legal. This pul an end to the  bootleggers, rum runners, etc.  Today our government is trying  to stop smoking by pulling the  price so high that people should  stop smoking. Instead, Ihis is  only encouraging theft of  cigarettes to sell and also smuggling into the country. Like in  the days of rum running, it is  only leading to a cigarette war  lhal can eventually lead lo  killing, like in the older days.  For example, a friend of  dad's owned a fish boat called  the 'I'm Alone'. She was running whiskey from the French  islands and running it to the US.  The American Coast Guard was  getting fed up wilh Ihe 'I'm  Alone' and sank her by gunfire  in international waters.  Among the crew were  nationals from France and England.

Although no  cases have turned up in Ihis  area, Ihe public is interested in  how to prevent contacting Ihis  disease, says chief environmental health officer, R. Weston.  To dale 10 cases of E. coli  food poisoning possibly connected to the Washington Stale  outbreak have been reported in  BC. Two of these cases arc considered secondary transmission  between siblings. The followng  heallh file contains information  about the disease.  Despite Ihe many pleasure of  summer, it's important not to  become an unwilling, complacent victim of 'hamburger' disease.  Also known as 'barbecue  season syndrome', this disease  is a form of food poisoning  caused by the Ii. coli bacterium,  which are often found in undcr-  . cooked meat, most frequently in  ground beef.  The best protection against  infection from Ii. coli and other  bacteria such as Salmonella is a  combination of thorough cooking and safe food preparation:  ��� refrigerate or freeze meals  as soon as possible after buying;  ��� Thaw meals in Ihe refrigerator, not al room temperature;  ��� wash hands thoroughly  before preparing food, after  handling raw meat and after  using Ihe toilet;  ��� cilher cook hamburger pal-  ties right away, or put Ihem in  the refrigerator. Don'l let raw  meal sit at room lempcrture;  ��� Wash all utensils, culling  boards and counters wilh hot,  soapy water lo prevent bacteria  from raw meals from contaminating other foods;  ��� cook all meats thoroughly -  the cenlre of hamburger panics  should be brown, not pink and  the juices clear;  ��� serve cooked meals immediately, or keep them hot (above  140 degrees F.)  hy Joyce Ostry  Krnie Addicoll sent me a Future livents 1993 schedule which I  will share wilh you.

This program  will offer individual and group  counselling for women who arc  survivors of violence or sexual  abuse and is part of Ihe Stopping Ihe Violence campaign  recently launched by Ihe  provincial governmenl.  'The counsellor, Marj Brown,  comes wilh long experience in  women's counselling and has  jusl completed a training program at lhe Justice Institute as  part of the startup process for  the new service, which is both  free and confidential. Brown  will have a new telephone number, but if you would like lo  find oul more about this program, please call Community  Services at 883-S881.  The renovations will also  provide a home base and  resource library for Chris Den-  Icy, coordinator of Special Services lo Children and a staff of  some 15 part-lime child care  workers. Chris and her staff  offer one-to-one assistance to  children with special emotional,  physical or mental needs.  Building Project  Community Services is  fundraising lo buy the Inlet  Avenue building which Ihey  now occupy from Ihe SCRD.  Now what's Community Services doing in lhe real estate  business? We are required lo  pay rent out of our operating  budgei but we believe lhal this  money would be better spent  helping us secure a permanent  home base for all our services.  The SCRD musl sell the building and we wanl to buy it,  because if wc don'l wc will  cither have to move, which will  mean fragmenting our programs, or we will have lo pay a  greatly increased renl.

Every time I see one of Iheir  trucks heading south I think  sure they are on Iheir way to Ihe  hospital. Being in labour and  having a baby is one of the  experiences for a woman that is  probably one of the most difficult to describe. It's beautiful,  mind blowing, and takes you to  a realm where all is focused and  intense. It's a place and time  you will never forget, yet such a  beginning that gets forgotten in  the raising of a child.  Ya! Right! Spring is here. I  spoke too soon. On the west  coast I should know that spring  never really starts until the end  of March. Where did the bumble bees go, anyway?  Okay, listen! I'm only the  messenger and I know there  should be a dance before the  end of Ihis month. Well I just  heard that we are going to wait  until everyone gels over being  sick, whenever that is, I'm not  sure, so I'll say, sometime in  the near future we're going lo  boogie. We sure are in need of  it. Such a dry winter, I do wish  we would get some rain.  Scout leaders pass  wood badge training  by Roy Mills  Leaders of Beaver, Cub and  Scout sections from groups in  the Sunshine Coasl district have  taken part in many of the Wood  Badge Training Courses held so  far during the 1992/93      year.  The leaders are:  Wood Badge Part I -  Beavers Robin Briet-  zke, Gibsons, David  Lesko ad Bruce Morris, Sechell, Dena  Nicholby and Shannon  Starrs, West Sechelt.  Cubs - Sean Huggins  and Sean Regnier,  Gibsons, Doug Arcus  and Warren James, West  Sechelt. Scouts - Brad Palm,  Gibsons. Wood Badge Pari 2 -  Scouts - Wendi Rottluff and Al  Strang. Dislricl - Roy Mills.  Training chairman Bob  Adams is pleased that so many  leaders, several of them in their  first year, have entered into the  Wood Badge program. This  program was started by founder  Lord Baden-Powell just over 70  years ago when it became obvious lhal Ihe Scout movement  There are  now  different  wood badge  courses/or  tbe different  sections'  was growing to such an extent  that a training course for  Scouters was essential if the  prpogram was to be offered in  an effective consistent manner  and in keeping with the spirit of       Scouting.  The first courses  were run at Gilwell  Park in Essex. Leaders completing both  Pari 1 and 2 become  members of the first  Gilwell Park Scout  Group and can wear  the distinguishing  neckerchief of that  group when not wear-  ~~~~ ing their own group  colours.  The sharp-eyed can also spot  Ihem by Ihe leather thong over  Iheir neckerchief with a wooden  bead at each end, replicas of  those forming a necklace worn  by a Zulu chief and given by  him to Baden-Powell about 100  years ago. There are now different Wood Badge courses for the  different sections, Beavers,  Cubs, Scouts, Venturers and  Rovers, as well as for District  Service Team members.  harbour watch  by Jacalyn Vincent  A thankless job that Mrs.  Bea llallberg has done now for  many years is by putting on  bake sales for the SPCA.

PERSONAL & CORPORATE TAX  PAYROLL  BOOKKEEPING  FINANCIAL STATEMENTS  813 Sunshine Coast Hwy, Gibsons  886-8966  E File Available for 1992 Personal Tax Return  As separations and divorces grow in number,  Canada's income-tax laws have tried to adapt to  the times so as to minimize the negative tax consequences that can arise on the break-up of a marriage.  An important financial consideration upon marriage breakup is what happens to either spouse's  registered retirement savings plan.  Normally, if one spouse wishes to transfer funds  from an RRSP to the other, lhe first spouse would  be required to collapse all or part of the RRSP and  pay tax on the proceeds.  The after-tax proceeds could then be transferred.  However, Ihe Income Tax Act recognizes that  on the breakdown of a marriage, and the coincident  splitting of assets, RRSPs often are transferred  from one spouse to another as part of a settlement  or division of the assets.  What's more, under Quebec's family-patrimony  law, couples who have not opted oul nf the law's  provisions must equally divide certain assets ���  including RRSP savings ��� if their marriage ends.  Funds in an RRSP may. be transferred without  any immediate tax consequences to a spouse or  former spouse when all of the following conditions  have been met:  ��� The spouses are living apart.  a The transfer is pursuant to either a decree,  order or judgment of a competent tribunal, or a  written separation agreement.  ��� The spouse to whom the RRSP is being transferred is not over the age of 71 in the year in which  Ihe transfer is made.  ��� The transfer is made directly between two  RRSPs. Neither spouse may receive any funds  directly from the RRSP. A prescribed Revenue  Canada form is necessary to make this inter-plan  transfer.  For purposes of transferring assets on marriage  breakdown, a spouse includes a common-law  spouse, defined as a person of the opposite sex living with the individual in a conjugal relationship  for at least a year.  Another provision that facilitates financial settlement upon separation or divorce permits the  annuitant of a spousal RRSP to withdraw funds  from the RRSP regardless of when contributions  were made.  Normally in this situation the contributor-  spouse would be taxed on the withdrawal if any  contribution was made in the year or the previous  two years.  However, this rule does not apply where there  has been a marriage breakdown.  Alimony and child-support payments also may  have an impact on the amount that may be contributed to an RRSP.  The payment of alimony and child support will  reduce Ihe payee's earned income, and therefore  potentially reduce the payer's ability to contribute  to an RRSP.  On the other hand, the recipient's earned  income is increased by the alimony and child support payments and, consequently, the ability to  contribute to an KKSP is potentially increased.

Protecting your RRIF is  important since it is hoped that  it will pay you an income for  the rest of your life. Many trust  companies and banks have various affiliates or subsidiaries  whereby your deposit insurance  can be increased to $ 120,000  providing you maintain two  RRIFs (you can have as many  RRIFs as you like).  But remember, the maximum length of term protected  by the CDIC is five years. So if  a trust company or bank offers  you a 10-year term, chances are  you will not be covered.  Self-directed RRIFs are not  insured under the CDIC (unless  you are holding CDIC insured  deposits in your portfolio).  However, ihere is a deposit-  insurance plan offered by the  securities industry known as the  Canadian Investors Protection  Fund (CIPF) Ask your stockbroker or mutual-funds representative for details.  Ninety-nine per cent of life-  insurance companies are members of CompCorp, a privately  funded deposit-insurance plan.  In the event lhal a member  company became insolvent and  you had a RRIF in a guaranteed  interest account, you would be  offered a onetime choice of  either a cash settlement for up  to $60,000 or conversion of  your RRIF fund value into a life  annuity with a maximum payout of $2,000 a monlh.

By that time the system  that has supported seniors'  incomes for so long will be  stretched to its maximum.  That's because there are  fewer younger people behind  them to provide the money.  And the indexing policy lhat  the government implemented  last year on the Canada Pension Plan will make it harder  for CPP to keep up with  inflation.  The best thing to do is to  start planning for a secure  retirement now. Few Canadians do.  A recent Stats Can survey  shows that up to 41 percent  of Canadians aged 45 to 64  have made no plans for  retirement, yet 67 percent of  people in this age bracket  think Ihey will have enough  to satisfy their retirement  needs.  The truth is that only four  percent of the people who  reach 65 will have enough  money to retire comfortably  without government assistance.  The most important thing  is to put money away in a tax  sheltered investment such as  an RRSP. as soon as possible. The longer you wait, the  more you need to put away  to achieve the same goal.  Canadians should come  up with a financial plan  through the help of a financial advisor. First they  should come up with a projection of income needed and  take into consideration  indexing for future inflation.  This will provide Ihem wilh  a base figure needed to main-  lain a decent lifestyle on  retirement.  Second, they need to  decide on an investment  strategy to achieve that goal.  Here, diversification is the  key.  Use your RRSP to shelter  fixed income investment,  whicli are taxed at a higher  rate than equities. Also, take  advantage of the increase to  18 percent foreign content  limit in your RRSP. For  example, there are some  excellent returns on foreign  bonds that can be purchased  through global bond funds.  Mutual funds, in general,  are a great way to diversify  your funds without a lot of  risk. Consult a financial  advisor on which funds have  the best track record in both  Ihe good and bad times.  A good way to get  through Ihe peaks and  troughs of the business cycle  is to dollar-cost average your  investments. Some funds  allow purchases of as little as  $50 per month.  The last thing is for people to monitor the performance of Iheir portfolio and  make adjustments as necessary, lo shift with changing  business conditions.  Do all this and your retire-,  menl will be a money worry-  free one.  Catherine Vrguhart is a  registered advisor wilh  Great Pacific Management.

Joel Johnstone pholo  Some advise caution for RRSPs  You're thinking of abandoning your conservative strategy  of putting only cash investments  in your RRSP and instead buying an equity mutual fund?  Think twice before you do it,  some financial advisors warn,  advising the majority of RRSP  investors is to stick to fixed-  income investments such as  guaranteed investment certificates anil bond coupons.  You should maintain this pattern whether interest rates are  high or low and try to gel a good  average return over time.  If you're really worried about  today's low rates, you can look  at a bond or mortgage mutual  fund, where your returns will  fluctuate as interest rates  change.  This conservative strategy  applies to investors who are  relying on their RRSP as an  important source of retirement  income. If you have a good  company pension plan and feel  you can afford lo use your  RRSP more as a tax-deferral  vehicle, then it might make  sense to take a higher growth  approach and hold stocks or  equity mutual funds. The decision lo pul an equity fund into  an RRSP depends on the individual investor's situation.  In the long run, equity funds  will always outperform certifi  cates. Nonetheless, most people  are belter off sticking to GlCs  regardless of market conditions.  We recommend splitting an  RRSP contribution equally  among one-, two-, three-, four-  and five-year maturities. When  lhe GICs mature in each of Ihe  following five years, they can be  rolled over jnto new G|Cs wjlh  five-year terms, which generally  pay the highest rates.   .., .,.!,���  This provides maximum flexibility and reduces risk by hav-  ing money come due (for reinvestment) every year.  Common  RRSP  queries  A number of RRSP questions concern investment strategics. Here are some fast  answers, just prior to the deadline:  YES, Canada Savings Bonds  can be transferred to a self-  directed RRSP.  NO, real estate cannot be  held in an RRSP, although a  mortgage on real estate is an eligible investment, if done in the  prescribed manner.  YES, various brokers will  have different opinions about  what investment is best for you.  You may need a more strategic approach to your investment  planning, one that takes into  i account expected risk and  returns for various types of  investments.  YES, interest rates are lower  now, but you should not believe  this will be the case forever.  Rates will rise again in the  near future, so one strategy  could be to suffer through low  deposit rates with a one- or two-  year term, then be ready to  invest at higher rates.  Another way is to invest in  bond or mortgage funds now.  But be careful. When rates rise,  these will begin lo lose value.  NO, you should not necessarily switch over to stocks or  equity mutual funds, just  because interest rates are low.  Rather, decide if you should  have some of your money in the  sinck market, and if so, invest  personal funds there before  RRSPs.  YES, it is simple, generally,  to convert your personal mutual-fund investment into.an  RRSP, providing it is an eligible  mutual fund, meaning most of  ils investments are Canadian.  YES, if you believe long-  term interest rates are getting as  low as ihey will get, then now is  the time to sell stripped bonds  and coupons.  *' We are not sure that time has  l>S?n reached yet. ��� '. ..  ������i,-, YES, y<iy.-should IrtVesfybur;  ' KRSPin an equity mutual fund  if you are young and intend to  leave il there for 10 years or  more.

But since an accident over  Irs ago, Duvall hasn't heard  them. It was June 8, 1979 when  she tripped going down stain; to  the basement and hit her head on  a pillar at the bottom. From lhat  time on, her hearing loss was  total. Since then, it's been a  gradual adjustment for Duvall,  one that's been made easier in  the last five years with a dog  named Lacy trained to help the  hearing-impaired.  In many ways, people's reactions to both her deafness and to  Lacy have also told more Duvall  much more about human nature  than they could have when she  still had her hearing.  At first after her accident,  Duvall says it took a long time  to accept that she was deaf.  "It didn't fully register that 1  may never hear again," she says.  "I kept thinking maybe they've  made a mistake...! thought up a  million excuses because 1 was  terribly afraid to face the truth."  Before the accident, says  Duvall, she'd always had very  acute hearing. Friends used to  comment that Meg would hear a  pin drop on Trail Island. She'd  always enjoyed listening to  music, and would often pull out  her record collection if she was  feeling low.  Also, "1 was always a very  strong independent person."  After h'er hearing loss was  confirmed as permanent, Duvall  says for years her husband's  hearing became a substitute for  hers. But that all changed when  he died very suddenly one night  in 1985. "I don't think I've ever  hated my deafness much more  than that night," she says. "1 had  to use the standard phone lo call  the ambulance." She remembers  Meg Duvall  and her  hearing dog  Lacy.  Jane Seyd phot  screaming to the operator to  send an help, not knowing if  anyone heard her on the other  end.  Later on, she found she spent  a lot of time at the window  watching for friends to arrive at  her house, because she couldn't.  hear them coming. "It just  seemed like such a tremendous  waste of time."  Then one summer, friends  visiting the PNE noticed a booth  with information on assistance  dogs for the deaf and told  Duvall to look into it.  That's when Lacy, a poodle  trained by the Pacific Assistance  Dogs Society, came to join her.  Lacy, a former show dog,  spent four months with the society learning to alert an owner to  sounds like the door bell, the  smoke alarm and the phone  before coming up to Sechelt in  1988. Lacy either gives a sharp  bark, which Duvall picks up  through vibrations,, or jumps up  waist high lo get her attention,  then leads her to the source of  the sound.  Duvall also watches Lacy's  ears to see whether they are  lying down or rising to listen to  a noise. "A dog's ears can tell  you a lot," she says.  For the most part, people  have been accepting of Lacy on  premises where dogs aren't usually allowed.  But it hasn't always been that  way. One restaurant in Sechelt  turned her away, she says, and  in the beginning, passengers  Gibsons budget projects average three per cent tax hike  by Charles Hart  Owning a home in Gibsons  will naturally cost more in taxes  this year, but not that much  more.  Town council passed a  revised provisional budget lasl  week that predicts an average  three per cent tax increase in  1993 for property owners whose  assessments have risen in the  mean range of 37 per cent this  year.  Total revenues are budgeted  to rise aboul 10 per cent, the balance of Ihe increase is accounted  for by new construction in 1992.  Treasurer Ian Poole notes that  properly owners whose assessments increased by more than 37  per cent will consequently see a  higher lax hike, and those below  average will be billed less than  three per cent when tax notices  are mailed oul.  Grants are down from last  year, mostly because there is no  revenue-sharing grant with, the  highways departmenl, said  Poole. Provincial grants are  lined up, however, lo help  rewrite the town's subdivision  bylaw, draft concept plans for  downtown and uptown revitalization plans and rewrite Gibsons' zoning bylaw.  Total revenues are  budgeted to rise  about 10 per cent  The treasurer cites key  expenditure increases in transportation, $41,600 above 1992,  and planning services, which  will see a hike of $66,900.  Under transportation, the  town plans to improve road  maintenance and signage and is  facing a major increase (82 per  cent) for garbage collection  costs as a result of a change in  contractor.  The planning increase is  attributable to the subdivision  and zoning bylaw review and  hiring temporary staff lo deal  with a backlog of development  applications and extra work  involved in preparing and presenting the town's new draft  official communily plan.  In addilion, Ihe town will pay  a one-time only $100,000 lease  fee lo the provincial government  for marina rights.  llie fee is for a 30-ycar lease,  has been budgeted for in previous years and has zero effect on  1993 taxation, Poole said.  There are noteworthy  increases in the water and sewer  rales for 1993, however, stemming from public works'  improvements the town has  undertaken to allow for growth.  The water user fee will rise 26  per cent  (from  $89.10  lo  $112.30) and frontage lax will  ��� | of Incv Ti rlf "nurii  rise 20 per cent (from $1.05 lo  $1.25). The rates are on a par  with Ihose of the regional district and Mayor Eric Small said  the objective is lo bring them  into line for future water system  integration.  Similar increases apply to  sewer rales, parcel laxes rising  20 per cent (from $137 to  $164,50) and user fees increasing 26 per cent (from $133.50 to  $168,25).  The chief capital project for  the year centres on engineering,  drainage, sidewalks and paving  of School Road.  A budgeted capital program  of just over $500,000 will be  accomplished without debt  financing, about 40 per cent to  be paid from prior year's surplus.  The town is borrowing to  purchase 10 acres of land on  Shaw Road ($200,000) and to  pay ils share toward $305,000 in  pool renovations.

"One things we do is check  oul track record before awarding contracts, then we won't  necessarily award it to them  based on low bid."  But Bob Richards, resource  officer of the Prince George forest district, says economics has  very little to do with how well a  tree is planted.  He says in his experience,  established contractors with  experienced crew members can  have as many problems with the  quality of their trees as newer  companies.  One factor that could make a  difference in maintaining the  quality of planting, should the  projections of contractors such  as Greenfield and Brinkman  prove correct, is the 1991 Forest  Resource Development Agency  (FRDA II).  Originally conceived in 1985  as a program to reduce the backlog of unplanted eutblocks, the  emphasis of FRDA II will be on  tending plantations that have  been reforested.  That includes targeting funds  for tending, spacing and pruning, as well as research.  But Greenfield remains skeptical.  "ll depends on the level of  financial commitment six or  seven years down the road when  these seedlings have to be managed," he says.  "It's a joke. 1 mean everyone  agrees it's a joke. Silviculture  funding has been like a political  tap that turns on and off. As  soon as there's a bit of a financial squeeze in Victoria or  Ottawa the first thing that gets  cut is the silviculture."  The provincial government  has put a temporary freeze on  program funding to FRDA II  that is expected to remain until  the end of the. fiscal year, confirms Scott,  "Essentially the FRDA program has been put on hold. All  the money lhat was allocated for  the year has been spent."  *\'i'/.'/,���  Open for Lunch  Join us for fresh  wholesome  sandwiches,  homemade muffins,  hearty soups,  cappuccino.  <��  NATUREWORKS  Nutrition Centre Inc.

Coast News, February 22, 1993  All is not well on  recreation front  Well, well, well, what's all this then?  A little recommendation to take more exercise and  develop better recreation habits and facilities so we can  all get in the "wellness" groove.  This is good sense. More, this is something that we are  all innately aware of. When we abandon even the most  untaxing exercise regime in favour of sloth our bodies  invariably complain. Worse yet, atrophy is always close  behind.  Coupled with this inescapable knowledge of the benefits and sense of well being that emerges from recreating,  is the equal knowledge that all is not as it should be on  the Coast's recreation front.  When open, the Gibsons pool offers a splash and paddle, little more. It is hopelessly inadequate to serve a  community of this size even now.  And we have an arena boasting some of the highest  costs in the province that is in an absurd location, a legacy from dubious political dealings of yesteryear.  All who first come to the Coast can't quite believe the  state of recreation here, but soon And themselves relaxing  to mellifluous assurances that things are about to  improve.  The SCRD commissioned a report two years ago (Professional Environmental Recreation Consultants or  PERC) that recommended a unified recreation commission for the Coast. We paid money to learn that a recreation commission is an excellent idea, along with a coordinator to bring everything together. It would cost IS  cents per $1,000 of assessed value, we were told, and the  idea was widely supported.  So bring it on.  In the last two years alone the number of people participating in minor sports on the Coast has skyrocketed,  putting volunteers who run the programs under extreme  pressure to keep things going. Help in coordinating  would be a boon to hundreds of youngsters already participating in recreational activities, aside from any new  initiatives that would blossom from establishing a commission to manage the whole recreation spectrum.  We witnessed a series of meetings in every pocket of  the Coast last year as the healthy communities project got  underway. .Last weekend the process, financed to the tune  of $300,000, took the next step at a woikshop attended by  some 100 people, including numerous Coast politicians  and 'facilitators', who wrestled with the notions of making this corner of the province a healthier place to live.  Si Al the end of the day they pulled a rabbit out of the hat  Mi, lo'and behold, wouldn't you know that ol' pal recre-  )|ion was dangling there just hoping someone would  come out and play.  At the same time, Sechelt and Gibsons find themselves  debating the merits of a regional plan that would see  town and rural residents begin to pay a share toward the  operation and maintenance of the arena. A taxation formula based on improvements only and excluding undeveloped land is largely seen as unfair, but a necessary  first step toward unified recreation. A gesture of political  good faith, as it were, that could still be quashed in a referendum if residents don't like it.  And they probably won't. Then we can go back and  study it some more, come up with some other formulas as  we tiptoe around trying to keep warm while we continue  to forestall the sweaty leap into the recreation void.  Everyone knows what must be done so why don't we  just get on with it. It has been studied, debated and public  inputed to death.  ICBC  AS COWOMT�� PRESIDENT, VMSVRE TNEiU  BACK ME l/P WHEN I -SAY THIS IWW mWfitir  KTUAUy JUMfiCD OUT IN FNOHT Of ME/.*  Native fish policy  arouses curiosity  An open Letter to John  Crosbie, Minister or Fisheries  & Oceans  It is with considerable relief  that I read your expensive  advertisement saying you will  maintain stability and profitability in BC commercial and sports  fishing.  But I am curious:  ��� You say the "Aboriginal  Fisheries Strategy" is designed  to implement a Supreme Court  decision guaranteeing native  rights to fish for food, social and  ceremonial purposes. What has  that to do with commeicial sale  offish?  ��� You say the Aboriginal  allocation is still three per cent.  Is this three per cent the fish  natives eat, the fish they sell or  the 480,000 sockeye Dr. Pearse  noticed were lost in their fishing'  area?  ��� How do you know it is still  three per cent when neither food  fish nor market fish were counted?  ��� Why are you assigning the  right to fish without using it to  extinguish some land claims?  ��� You say the DFO is not  giving up management responsibilities. Last year you did not  even arrest the US fishboats  photographed fishing in the  Fraser River. Can you arrest  them this year?  ��� Do you expect to arrest any  natives who again break conservation laws on the Nass, Skeena  or Central areas this year?  ��� Of the 85 natives you say  i  were charged last year, were  any sentenced?  W.E. GRIFFITH  Egmont  Sechelts are fit  to manage resource  The Fishermen's Coalition,  the Reform Party and our own  MLA are lately stating they are  against racism in fisheries management.  They ought therefore to support the natural right of BC's  family of first nations to assume  stewardship of the west coast  fisheries based on simple  seniority. Since federal non-  native management has resulted  in disastrous overfishing on the  east coast and some significant  dioxin pollution closures here  on the west coast, we cannot say  we haven't been given a decent  chance. ,,  It is only fair that the first  nations be allowed their tum. It  just may be that during their  many thousands of years of  experience wilh the resource  they have internalized some tangible and intangible elements of  procedure which are essential  for sustainability.  The Sechelt nation, in particular, has demonstrated through  its own enhancement initiatives  that it is fit to manage fisheries  in its traditional territory. Who  can claim a clearer right to manage this fishery?  ROGER LAGASSE  Halfmoon Bay  Ferries, highways  cooperation needed  An open letter to the BC  Ferry Corporation  Over the past few months the  questions of future development  by both the BC Ferry Corporation and the Ministry of Transportation and Highways have  been discussed as they may  affect the Sunshine Coast.  As a representative of the  West Howe Sound Electors'  Association and as a private citizen advocate I have been present and active at meetings with  letters welcome  We welcome letters to the editor on matters of public  Interest. However, we reserve the right to ed!*  submissions for brevity, clarity and legality. Please mail  your letters to:  The Editor  Sunshine Coast News  Box 68  Sechelt, B.C.  VON 3A0  both the Ferry Corporation and  Highways personnel, with the  intent of expressing some general concerns and a few areas specific to both government agencies.  To be more focussed, there is  a need to understand the proposed inter-connect between the  so-called Gibsons Bypass  (presently in limbo), and the  Port Mellon Highway (101).  The wedding or melding of  which may indeed be quite fractious. Without question there  will be access and traffic flow  problems.  It should be understood lhat  the long range implications of  any decision, when the apparent  priority is ferry traffic flow, has  to consider the equally relevant  aspects of local traffic, foot passengers, parking access, emergency needs, cyclists, passenger  pickup and dropoff, residential  and industrial development,  public transport convenience  and wheelchair access, etc.  I appreciate that the Ferry  Corporation and Highways are  separate entities, but in this particular instance the actions of  one absolutely affect the other.  A case where short-term solutions will not be the most economic as perceived by the public.  There is a vital need for  recognition of joint responsibility and I respectfully request  your consideration and cooperation with the public beyond the  immediate pressure on both the  Ferry Corporation and Highways.  ERIC R. CARDINALL,  Gibsons  Is eco-terrorism to be the new danger of our time?  One of the things I was proudest of a couple of  years ago was the steadfast stance the Coast News  took against the Gulf War. It was taken by all of  the editorial people and nothing that has happened  since January 1991 has persuaded me that we were  not entirely correct.  Before the war the CIA advised that sanctions  were having an effect and would eventually bring  Saddam Hussein to his senses. But the hawks  argued for a surgical war striking only military targets.  They argued that such a war would cause less  suffering for the Iraqi people.  We did not think we were all-knowing, those of  us who took a position against military action. It  was more of a visceral or instinctive feeling that if  you want peace then you shouldn't make war.  The war was fought and declared a great success. Saddam Hussein's forces left Kuwait and the  corrupt royal family came back and America felt  powerful again.  But Saddam didn't just go away. Today, the  United Nations is keeping the sanctions on, the  people of Iraq are suffering, we are overflying both  the north and the south of Iraq to try to keep Hussein from barbarising the Kurds in tbe north and  the Shiites in the south. These people were foolish  enough to take George Bush's advice and try to  musings  John burnside  overthrow Hussein. Without outside help, getting  rid of the tyrant proved beyond them and they aie  paying a heavy price.  But there is more. As he said he would do if  attacked, Hussein set the oilfields of the Gulf afire  and poured millions of tons of oil into the Gulf.  It is one of the greatest ecological disasters in a  time when they grow more commonplace. Little is  being done about the clean-up apparently.  Lesser disasters get greater prominence in the  news, possibly because they are less politically  embarrassing.  The new phrase, friends, is eco-terrorism. Saddam Hussein is a trail blazer in this field, but it has  not been long before his example has been picked  up and followed. As this is being written, a dam in  tbe farmer Yugoslavia has been mined. The Croat-  ians say it was the Serbs; the Serbs say it was the  Croatians, but certainly it has been mined and there  may be another ecological disaster in the making.  Also in Yugoslavia a few weeks ago, a Serbian  captain running *he blockade with oil for the  embattled Serbs threatened to set his cargo afire  and discharge in the already badly polluted  Danube.  He was allowed to deliver the cargo. Eco-terrorism works.  It is possible that the mighty military forces of  the United States provide only an illusion of security. Faced with overwhelming military might, people have always found a weapon with which to  fight back. It may be that eco-terrorism is the  weapon of our time.  This chilling development pioneered by Hussein  in the Gulf War, must come as bad news in a world  not yet coming to grips with environmental degradation begun with the industrial revolution and  spreading rapidly now around the world as the  Third World aggressively tries to catch up with the  American standard of living, taking every short cut  along the way without regard for the air and water  and the earth which are base fabrics of our lives.  It may be that we will not come to our senses  until there is a huge tragedy brought about by the  ancient hatreds or smug assumptions that bedevil  our days and threaten our future. But even then,  there is evidence that we have simply turned away  from the disaster perpetrated by Hussein on the  Persian Gulf.  Our ability to ignore the results of our actions  may be far from exhausted.  On the heels of the Gulf War a triumphant  George Bush proclaimed a New World Order. It is  what is needed, all right, but events have shown us  since Bush proclaimed the New World Order that  it is easier to proclaim than to achieve.  It is a critical time, again, in the history of nun.  The focus is on the United Nations but the ability  of the world body to cohere and correct long-established problems is not proven.  Nor does its greatest success, the Gulf War,  entirely reassure.  What Saddam Hussein may have taught us is  that, in terms of the environment, overwhelming  military power may get us only pyrrhic victories. It  is possible for those overwhelmed to strike back  with eco-terrorism to the detriment of all in an  increasingly inter-dependent world.  If we are to bring our problems under some control it may not be enough just to carry a big stick  and be ready to use it  Where's the carrot? How can we persuade people to peace because it is in their own best interest?  .

Joel Johnstone photo  Minor hockey checks out hosting provincials  With the Sunshine Coast's first 'AA'  midget minor hockey tournament just Ihree  weeks away, organizers are still looking for  extra cash to help stage the event.  Local government is the latest funding  source to be tapped, with the minor hockey  association approaching Gibsons council last  Tuesday to outline tournament events and  ask for assistance. 'This is the largest tournament the province has ever seen at this  level of hockey, 16-17-year-old boys and  girls," said association president Don  MacLeod in a letter. "As can be seen this is a  very large undertaking for this organisation,  not only from the work load bul also financially."  Organizers seeking cash  to help pay for AA  tournament  Association spokesman John Sperring  said 11 teams from across the province will  compete in the tournament, which will be  spread over four days March 13-16. An  opening banquet is scheduled for Saturday  evening (March 13). Noting that about a  third of minor hockey's players are Gibsons'  residents, Sperring urged council to consider  making a contribution, especially as the town  turned down the association's grant request  at the beginning of the season.  He said the tournament budget is $25,000.  "It takes a lot of money to host the provincials and we're limited by the fact it's all  volunteers that are putting it on."  Sperring said organisers are also looking  for game sponsors, businesses or groups  which will be formally acknowledged for a  cash contribution toward the cost of a specific game in the tournament.  This is the first year the Sunshine Coast  Minor Hockey Association has played in the  Pacific Minor Hockey league with midget  players regularly travelling off Coast for  weekend games.  Trivia:  some facts  abput  Canada's  sport  ��� A team from Montreal won  the first Stanley Cup in 1894.  The silver bowl was donated  by Canada's Governor General,  Baron Stanley of Preston.  The Canadian Amateur  Hockey Association was  formed in 1914 with a mandate  to establish and monitor local  minor hockey organizations,  sanction tournaments and  establish amateur classifications by age group.  Age categories are novice  (nine and under); atom (10 and  11); pee wee (12-13); bantam  (14-15); midget (16-17); junior  (18-19); and senior (20 and  over).  The National Hockey  League was established in 1917  with four teams - Montreal  Canadiens, Montreal Wanderers, Ottawa Senators and  Toronto Arenas. Today, Ihe  league includes 24 teams, with  eight in Canada and 16 in the  United States.  Until the 1960's, all hockey  stick blades were flat and  straight.  The introduction of curved-  blade sticks made shooting easier, requiring a different grip  and less exertion.  "Goalie skates" are specially  designed for ease of side-to-  side movement in the goal-  crease.  Goaltenders' facemask  designs have become so artistic  that the Hockey hall of Fame in  Toronto has an entire section  dedicated to their design.  New skate designs developed in the 1970's introduced a  light-metal blade enabling  players to skate faster and  longer.  About the same time, nylon  mesh replaced cotton in hockey  jerseys, and players' names  were added to the back.  In 1972, Derek Sanderson of  the Boston Bruins became the  first professional athlete to earn  a million dollars in one season.

Six elk captured on Vancouver Island were successfully  released just south of the hydro  substation between Madeira  Park and Earls Cove on Friday  afternoon.  Seven elk were transferred  to the same area last year, of  which one died, but two newborn calves were also sighted.  10 YEARS AGO  Gibsons centennial project, a  community recreation centre is  well underway wilh architectural and engineering drawings  presented.  Regional director Jim Gurney writes to Gibsons council  objecting to "piecemeal boundary expansion."  15 YEARS AGO  Citizens of Pender Harbour  mourned the death of long time  resident John Daly. Mr. Daly,  fisherman and former executive  of the United Fishermen and  Allied Workers Union, passed  away in The Pas, Manitoba.  20 YEARS AGO  Fire, discovered about 4 am  Tuesday, resulted in a complete  demolition of the building  which housed the Red Rooster  Cafe on the highway in Davis  Bay.  25 YEARS AGO  A junior high school for  Sechelt is reported to be the  basis for the next school district  referendum.  35 YEARS AGO  W.H. Payne, Conservative,  Coast/Capilano, announced  Honourable Howard Green,  Minister of Public Works, has  authorized a breakwater and  floats for Gibsons Landing with  work to start on the project at a  very early date.  40 YEARS AGO  The chairman of the St.  Mary's Hospital committee  reports that during the past  week the number of patients has  increased.

Men  ADVERTISING  FORTENANCY  British Columbia legislation prohibits advertising which discriminates in the rental of property.  For example a person who  stipulates 'No Children' as a  condition ol rental would be in  violation ol the Family Status and  the Human Rights Ads. The  landlord who places the advertise-  ment and the newspaper which  publishes it would both be in  contravention ol the legislation  and could have a complaint Ned  against them. The Coast News  will therefore not accept such  discriminatory ads.  1 bdim. ground level, garden, view  apt., central Gibsons. $395.255-  7518. Mw  1971 LandRover ��� 88 complelely igss Chev.

Coast News, February 22, 1993  21  news  Health officer backs SCRD watershed bid  by Jane Seyd  The local health department is backing  the Sunshine Coast Regional District in its  bid to gain control over logging in the Chapman Creek watershed.  In a letter to the regional district, medical  health officer Dr. Paul Martiquet says the  SCRD should have control over activities in  the watershed because it is the only water  source capable of serving the present and  future population of the Coast.  In the past, drinking water has been  affected by logging road construction in the  lower portion of the Chapman, says Martiquet.  And he warns that logging in higher elevations could further degrade water quality,  if sufficient study isn't done first.  Reports on hydrology of the upper  Chapman watershed for the integrated  watershed management plan are still pending. But the health department says it would  like to see the studies done and any necessary upgrading of water treatment works  completed before any more logging is  approved.  According to a report from the health  department, drinking water on the Sunshine  Coast doesn't always meet standards  because of high bacteria counts, even after  disinfection.  The problem is caused by both insufficient treatment and poor raw water quality  with suspended particles of silt, which  reduces the effectiveness of disinfection.  Siltation of the water has increased in the  past through erosion due to improper logging techniques and road construction.  Siltation of the water also makes lab analysis less reliable, which is of concern to the  department because of the potential risk of  Giardia contamination.  Current levels of chlorination are not adequate to kill the Giardia organism, a protozoa which causes gastro-intestinal infection.  So far, no cases of infection have been  traced to the water supply, but surface water  supplies are always susceptible, says health  officer Bob Weston. Outbreaks have  occurred in other areas like Penticton, Kali-  mat and the Cariboo.  While greater treatment of water is  required, the report from the health department says treatment shouldn't be viewed as  a substitute for controlling raw water quality-  Among the recommendations to the integrated watershed management committee,  the health department lists proper forest  management and greater control of recreation in the watershed.  The department suggests expansion of  recreation in other areas such as the Caren  Range and Mount Richardson instead. It also  says both the regional district and health  department should be allowed to review logging proposals in the watershed before  approval is granted by the Ministry of  Forests.  Weston says while water quality still does  not always meet standards, it has improved  in recent years due lo better treatment.  Further measures being taken by the  regional district include a new settling reservoir and an alarm which will allow a shutdown of the water intake when suspended  particles of silt reach a high level.

This year, planning has been  even earlier than usual, she  added.  Workshops planned  Along with the authors  appearing in the summer and the  regular concert series, the festival is also preparing for ils writ  ers' workshops including those  on travel writing, crime writing,  song writing, putting together a  cookbook and writing local history.
