 Legislative Library  Parliament Buildings  Victoria, B.C. V8V 1X4  90.8  bupiciiie Court vindicates Wilson  by Caryl Worden  The dispute over Farrington  Cove came to an end February  21 as the Supreme Court of  British Columbia handed down  its decision dismissing the petition brought against the Sunshine Coast Regional District,  Thomas and Marlene Howatt,  and Farrington Cove Properties  Ltd. and ordered petitioner  Thomas Reid to pay resulting  court costs.  Under the Municipal Act, the  petition challenged SCRD By-  Laws 96.109 and 103.79 which  concern two parcels of land at  Farrington Cove in Pender Harbour.  The crux of the complaint  was that the process for the bylaw's public hearings, and Gordon Wilson as chairman of that  hearing, prevented the public  from making a full representation "and that they were not afforded a reasonable opportunity to be heard."  In the 'Reasons for Judgment' document released last  week, Mr. Justice Hinds who  heard the case in the BC  Supreme Court, wrote that the  court paid special attention to  the part of the Municipal Act  that stipulates that a public  hearing is "for the purpose of  allowing the public to make  representations to the local  government respecting matters  contained in the proposed bylaws".  Tapes and transcripts of the  Farrigton Cove by-law public  hearing held June 13 by the  SCRD were submitted. In his  decision, Mr. Justice Hinds  stated: "I am satisfied that the  chairman, Mr. Wilson, did not  prevent the public from making  representations which were relevant to matters contained in the  proposed by-law...Irrelevant  representations were properly  curtailed...He did not close the  public hearing abruptly."  In conclusion Justice Hinds  wrote: "The chairman is to be  commended, rather than  criticized, for the patient,  courteous and fair manner in  which he conducted the  meeting."  In a meeting with local media  Thursday, Wilson was pleased  at the court's decision. "This  judgment is absolutely complete  in its exoneration of not only  me, but of the Regional District  Board, and of the process by  which that board handled this  by-law."  But Wilson was angry that  the challenge had occurred in  the first place. "1 regard this  challenge primarily as a vehicle  to advance the political opportunities of Howard White and  Joe Harrison," Wilson said.  Harrison is President of the  Pender Harbour Ratepayers'  Association (PHRPA), an  organization that was against  the Farrington by-law, and  President of the local NDP  Riding Association. White,  owner of Harbour Publishing,  is also a PHRPA member and a  candidate for the local provincial NDP seat.  "What this demonstrates, I  think quite clearly, is that what I  have been subject to, and what  members of my committee in  Pender Harbour have been sub  ject to, is a deliberate, very  clearly planned attack on my  character and an aitanpt to try  and discredit myself and other  very good upstanding members  of trie community of Pender  Harbour for the single purpose  of advancing the political ambitions of one other individual,"  Wilson stated.  The by-laws in question concerned two land parcels owned  by the Howatts who planned a  condominium project on a  15-acre waterfront lot on Farrington Cove and a sewage field  on the adjacent four-acre lot.  In 1987, the two properties  were rezoned to allow development. But when they decided to  sell the properties in 1989, the  Howatts discovered that the  zoning limited development to  86 units, not the 100 units they  understood would be allowed.  At the end of May last year,  the SCRD gave first and second  readings to the by-laws which  would increase the density. A  public hearing at the board office in Sechelt was held in June  and the by-law was ultimately  passed on August 10, 1989.  As Chairman of Area A, Advisory Planning Committee  (APC), Wilson said he asked  Howatt and his real estate  agent, Art Alexander, to join  the group because of their  knowledge of the area and their  business expertise. "They did  not join the APC until well after  the Farrington Cove by-law was  heard in its initial stage,"  Wilson said. "And when it  came back to revision and second public hearing, they at no  time were given an opportunity  to make comment or have input."  Petitioner Tom Reid, a  former mayor of North Vancouver, who had recently purchased a retirement home in the  vicinity of Farrington Cove,  was in Vancouver General  Hospital awaiting open heart  surgery when the legal decision  was announced.  In a press release prepared  last week by the PHDRA,  President Joe Harrison was  quoted as praising Reid as a  man of principle.  Harrison said that Reid knew  that petitions to the Supreme  Court rarely succeed.  "I fed sorry for these people  (Reid and friends) who fought  so hard to preserve their  neighbourhood values," said  Harrison. "I apologize to no  one for trying to help them."  ��� "Whether or not such high  densities should have been  allowed on the Harbour waterfront, and whether or not a proper environment impact study  should have been done are questions that will come back to  haunt all who live there," said  the Ratepayers' president.  Director Gordon Wilson  hoped that the Supreme Court  decision would put an end to the  issue.  "I think that this judgment  proves without a shadow of a  doubt, that the allegations and  charges around this whole  business of misconduct on my  part, the fact that I was in the  pocket of the developers those  kinds of things, is absolutely  dismissed."  The Sunshine  Published on the Sunshine Coast       25* per copy on news stands        February 26,1990     Volume 44      Issue 9  People are suffering  Gibsons Council calls  for rontalsman  by Dave Fraser  Longtime residents of Gibsons were the guests of the Heritage Society in the old Women's Institute  Hall lasl Saturday to celebrate the return of the hall to the community and to consider plans to turn  it into a community theatre. ��� Dive Finer photo  Gibsons Town Council will  petition the provincial government to establish an agency or  authority to review rents to en-  ' sure that rental increases are  reasonable and just.  Although it was pointed out  that demolitions of affordable  housing and replacing it with  high-priced rental housing is not  a problem in Gibsons, council  agreed to pass the resolution at  its February 20 meeting upon  the urging of Alderman John  Reynolds, who noted that  without a rentalsman there currently is no one to whom renters  can appeal if they feel they are  being gouged by landlords.  Reynolds' motion was initiated by a letter from the  District of Squamish outlining  its recent petition to Victoria  aimed at solving the lack of affordable rental accommodation  In Sechelt  House moving lease protested  by Rose Nicholson  A petition presented by West  Sechelt property owners opposing the application for a  foreshore lease in the beach at  the foot of Mason Road for industrial and commercial use  prompted lengthy discussion at  the February 21 meeting of  Sechelt Council.  The lease application has  been made by two house moving companies who have for  several years been bringing the  houses by barge to the Coast  and unloading them on the  beach.  Several residents of the area  were present at the meeting and  complained about the noise and  disruption that occurs during  the night time house moving  operations.  "I have a letter from a real  estate agent to say that granting  of this lease would have a  disastrous effect on property  values in the area" Ms. S. Baggio told council. "We (residents  of the area) would request that  the District of Sechelt register  strong opposition to this lease  and that the district apply for a  foreshore lease on the property  to protect it for the use of  everybody as a whole."  Rita Percheson, real estate  agent and resident of Redrooffs  said "Ms. Baggio was told that,  residents of Redrooffs wanted  these homes, but that is clearly  not the case. I have a list of 50  signatures from Redrooffs  residents who are not in favour  of these houses. And as a  realtor I cannot understand why  council would allow industrial  use of land in a residential  area."  "These houses are fulfilling a  need for low cost housing"  commented another speaker.  "The alternative would be  single wide trailers."  "The houses moving into  Area B are not within the  jurisdiction of this council"  pointed out Administrator  Malcolm Shanks.  Alderman Wilson pointed  out that the house movers have  consistently complied with all  the reuired regulations and a  question from the Coasl News  to a representative of Supreme  House Movers disclosed that  the application for the foreshore  lease was prompted by a new  ruling from the provincial Parks  Branch.  "You can rest assured," Acting Mayor David Wells told ihe  petitioners, "that council will  pay attention to your petition  and do its best to alleviate your  problem."  Union reports chemloal  spill at Port Mellon  On February 7, 100,000  gallons of chlorine dioxide spilled into Howe Sound from the  Port Mellon mill over a five-  hour period. A 'computer error'  was given as the reason for the  spill.  Union members at the site of  the spill reported the spill immediately to the Technical Control Division and, when the  Technical Control Division  took no immediate action,  union members reported it further to the Waste Management  Branch of the Provincial  Government.  Hugh McNab, chairman of  the Environment Committee for  the union, expressed concern  about the safety of the workers  and the apparent ineffectiveness  of the Technical Control Division in responding to the spill.  McNab said: "The impression given on the computer  screen did not indicate what was  happening in the field. The  computer showed that a valve  was closed when in fact the  valve was open, causing the  spill.  Although the problem was  corrected, McNab felt it  distressing that it took over two  days for the Waste Management Branch to arrive on the  scene and sometime during the  next week before the system was  repaired.  Waste Management Representative Kevin Johnson confirmed that he arrived at Port  Mellon on Friday, February 9.  At that time he interviewed all  involved,  assessed what had  happened, and reviewed the  reporting procedures.  Johnson said that his final  report was still pending but that  he is satisfied that remedial  steps taken will prevent the  recurrence of such a spill. He  did note that the company  reporting procedure is still in its  draft form.  Technical Services Manager  Ron Wilson confirmed that the  spill had been reported by the  union immediately but not  reported to Waste Management  right away because he assumed  it was a minor spill. He agreed  that this did not prove to be the  case.  Wilson said that the company  too, is preparing a full report.  He described the spill as a rare  occurence and one that would  not happen again.  throughout British Columbia,  especially for people on low or  fixed incomes.  Squamish recommends programs be set up to compel  developers, when they demolish  medium and high density housing, to build an equal number of  rental units for the poor and  elderly; to establish a program  of subsidized rents under a formula which considers geographic area, household size and  household income threshholds;  and to establish a loan deferral  and mortgage guarantee and  subsidization program based on  the same criteria above.  But Alderman Ken Collins  said that even during the reign  of the rentalsman 10 years ago  the rental situation in Vancouver was as critical as ever,  "We should be aware that the  boom here (in the Gibsons area)  is partly due to the fact that  rents in Vancouver are at an international level. By advocating  a rentalsman we could be doing  our coast a disservice," Collins  said.  "We should subsidize areas  where people need assistance  and let the market take care of  the rest."  Alderman Jerry Dixon said  that some municipalities are the  culprits for creating rental shortages by setting up restrictive  regulations which discourage  the construction of rental housing.  But Mayor Diane Strom said  there are people in the Gibsons  area with low incomes suffering  from high rents and suggested a  rentalsman would be a step in  the right direction.  IP  Ml  \\\\\\\\\\\n  trf  This week It may be spring, but for a portion of  surely winter and these two Coast residents rude  the fact.  last week It was  ��� joyous use of  Serving the Sunshine Coast since 1945 Coast News, February 26,1990  And the  winner is...  The Supreme Court of British Columbia has pronounced and the Battle of Farrington Cove is over. Regional  Director Gordon Wilson has been vindicated completely  by Judge Hinds and the world can move on to other matters.  Lest our objectivity be questioned, we would have it  known that we take a decidedly jaundiced view of both  sides in the continuing controversy in Pender Harbour between the regional director and the self-appointed executive  of the Pender Harbour Ratepayers. Let us elucidate.  First, the winner in the latest and largest round: Gordon  Wilson dot's a very nice job of righteous indignation, none  better. But how well advised was he in the matter of Farrington Cove? It is known that he did receive advice against  appointing real estate developers to his APC on the impersonal grounds that those in the business of developing land  should not be making decisions affecting its use because of  an obvious perceived potential for conflict of interest,  terest.  The regional board has stood staunchly by him in the  Farrington Cove controversy but has there ever been a  developer on Peggy Connor's Area B APC? Has Jim  Gurney ever invited a leading developer to sit on his Area  E APC? Has there ever been a developer on the Area F  APC? Does Brett McGillivray have an APC?  Despite precedent and advice Wilson had a leading  developer on his APC. That was almost certainly a serious  political error.  Also, the fact that Area A has no Community Plan and  is wrestling to get a usable land use by-law in place four  and a half years after Wilson was first elected does not  bespeak any urgency on the director's part. Perhaps if he  had spent a fraction of the time serving in the post to  which he has been elected that he has spent seeking a post  to which he hopes to be elected, land use matters in Area A  would be in a more orderly alignment. How long can  Wilson blame Ian Vaughan for the current situation?  On the other side, we have Wilson's antagonists: the  besetting weakness of the Pender Harbour Ratepayers executive is that they are unelected and in no hurry apparently to hold elections. It is this lack of affirmation of grass  roots support that lays them open to Wilson's charges  of political opportunism.  In any event, the only people who are chuckling these  days as Wilson and White conduct their warfare are the  local Socreds. It would be entirely characteristic of  political life on the Sunshine Coast if we ended up with a  Socred MLA and an NDP government in the next provincial election. Undone again by unproductive squabbling  and the exercise of massive egos.  S YEARS AQO  A motion by Director McRae of Area C and seconded  by Director Vaughan of Area A called for the resignation  of Regional Board Chairman Jim Gurney. The motion  got the support of municipal representatives Burnside  and Kollbas which, using the weighted vote system,  passed the motion 10-9. Administrator Larry Jardine  pointed out that the Municipal Act left the decision  about resignation to the chair. Gurney said he would  give his decision the following week.  Teachers and administrators get support and a plea  is expressed for more time to respond to the provincial  government's 'Let's Talk About Schools' questionnaire  at an open forum held at Elphinstone Secondary  School.  10 YEARS AQO  Reg Romero, 59, known with great affection to  millions of fans of CBC's 'Beachcombers' as the lovable  Irish scoundrel McCloskey died this week on set as  shooting commenced for the ninth season of the  popular television show.  20 YEARS AQO  Dry weather has caused three fires as a result of  householders trying to burn unwanted dead grass.

SUBSCRIPTION RATES  Cintdi; 1 ytir 135; 0 months 930, Fortfgn; 1 year $40  Round the coffee pot  Budget a financial setback  by Caryl Worden  There's been a lot of talk  about money over the last week.  And the fact that we, Canadians  that is, don't have any.  Now, 1 try to keep well informed on the current state of  things - it's part of my job after  all. And I consider myself to be  of average intelligence, and con- j  scientious in pulling my fair  weight to keep things in the  world going smoothly. But no  matter how hard 1 try,  economics gets the better of me.  I've learned the hard way,  what living on credit can do. In  the early 1980s, I got my first  charge cards and spent without  thought of tomorrow. 1 went  back to school, paid for my  loan, and gave a good portion  of my first five years' wages to  the bank for the privilege.,.  A deep sense of despair  comes from wondering if youMl  be able to meet those 'minimum  monthly payments' and still buy  groceries. Meanwhile the principal sum owed was as impenetrable as a bank vault.  Enough was enough. I grovelled to the lending institutions  and got one fat loan to cover all  the unmanageable little ones.  Then, I tightened my belt to  meet the wafer thin living  budget that was left over after  feeding the consolidation  monster. 1 began to barter at  garage sales; I learned 101 ways  to cook creatively with cabbage  and pasta.  This month, after 10 years of  financial doom, I became debt  free. I celebrated with a bottle  of wine (under $5 mind you  -good habits are hard to break).  Now Finance Minister  Michael Wilson tells me 1 still  owe over $13,400 - my share of  the debt carried by every Canadian man, woman and knee-  biter.  Our deficit for this year is  expected to be $28.5 billion.  That's how much we'll spend  that we can't cover, just for one  year.  As if that isn't mind-numbing  enough (I mean who can really  relate to a million dollars, let  alone multiple billions?), this  country has a federal debt of  $350 billion, as well as whatever  .red ink each of the provinces  draws on. -.'-,,  So, can't we just refit the old  belt? Not so simple, say the experts who point out that we're  not in this game alone; the  whole world is playing. Here are  some of the rules, as I understand them.  With high interest rates, the  other players all want to buy  Canuck dollars; foreign investment increases. But consumer  spending goes down. We decide  to wait a while to buy a house or  a new car. This tends to drive  the value of our dollar up.  When the Canadian dollar  goes up, we pay less for imported goods like Japanese  stereos or California avocadoes,  but the Americans don't buy as  much of our staple syrup and  sales of Caradiai wheat fall  right off in Japaii.  So then our economy doesn't  grow. And if we stay in one  place for six months (two  quarters in economic time), we  enter the recession zone.  If interest rates are low,  Canadians troop eagerly into  debt, but the international  money players suddenly find the  Malaysian ringgitt a more appealing currency. This can cause  our dollar to sag. Then we sell  lots of maple and wheat products, but it costs us more to  import goods (which we do a  lot).  Since our products are in high  demand, more work is created.  The economy grows. But those  non-Canadian products are still  costing us more, so we demand  higher wages to cover them. If  our money demands exceed the  amount the economy grows, the  inflation balloon gets bigger.  Economists rally around their  percentage points, each claiming to have the answer to our  domestic debt dilemma. It's all  too confusing to me, and none  of the solutions seem workable.  All I know is that I don't  think 1 can face another five  years of cabbage and pasta.  How Do I Love Thee?  (Dedicated to Stephany and Cameron)  How do I love thee?

Elizabeth Barrett Browning  Down from the mountain  Facts sabout snow retention  by Sam Moses  I read somewhere recently  that the planner for Jackson  Brothers Logging, which owns  the cutting rights to the Chapman Creek watershed,' is  specialized in watershed  management at some university,  the name of which wasn't mentioned.  This learned individual says  that in some cases logging helps  snow retention. In other words,  in some cases if you log an area  that might in fact help it to retain or hold onto the snow  longer. Some of the evidence  that he uses to illustrate that this  can be so is that: "We often  have to go up on the mountain  and plough the snow off the  roads, yet there is no snow in  the forests."  I strongly suggest to this  specialist that perhaps next time  rather than simply looking  through the vehicle's window,  that he put a pack on his back  and go right out into the field  for a week and have a good  look around before making his  conclusions.  On more than one occasion I  have had the misfortune of being camped below a snowed-  over logging slash during the  heavy rains that come in the spring. Given certain areas if one  doesn't have their wits about  them, the resulting run-off torrents can be life threatening.  On one trip I'll not soon  forget nor will my companion at  the time, we had camped below  just such a slash between two  creeks that were some distance  apart. During the course of the  night it began to rain, and  although our tent managed to  keep us dry for a time, suddenly  we began to get wet from the  ground up. It was in the wee  hours of the morning and there  was little I could do except try  to divert the water, working by  the light of my flashlight, and  keep the campstove going to offer warmth to my friend who  was rapped in a space blanket,  and beginning to show early  signs of hypoth rmia.  We made it though to the  morning light, at which time we  found that the two creeks had  joined together after only a few  hours of rain.  As soon as we could get our  heavily soaked gear together,  we headed down the nearest  logging road and eventually  after some miles came out on  the highway just outside of Port  Mellon. We were lucky in that  our only real injuries were the  fact that most of the skin had  been rubbed off of our feet,  which had been swimming  around inside our boots.  I have also been camped  below the snow-line of forested  areas of the same pitch and  elevation as the one mentioned  above and under the same con  ditions. Aside from the usual  discomfort that comes from  camping in the rain, the existing  creeks in the forest although  swollen managed to stay within  their banks and from underneath my tent.  I know for a fact that the last  place that snow can be found on  Elphinstone Mountain is up  near the top in the hollows  beneath the trees. The trees act  as an insulator of sorts, protecting the snow from the direct  rays of the sun. Even during the  rain the last of the snow is  gathered up against the tree  trunks, as the branches direct  the heaviest of the water outward like shingles on a roof.  1 have taken people up over  the top of the mountain in late  spring, and after getting scorched by the sun in the openness of  a slash, laughingly we quenched  our thirsts by making ice water  in our canteens from the snow  we found upon entering the  trees.  One area where I will admit  some logging roads and slashes  retain their snow longer than  others, is on the north side of  mountains and ridges...in the  shade. Even in these areas when  all the snow appears to have run  off, up in the hollows under the  trees it still lingers.  It is true that as a rule there is  more snow on logging roads as  compared to what one might  find under the trees, prior to the  major run-off. The snow that  lands on tree branches, if it  doesn't make the ground, winds  up melting during sunny days or  if milder weather brings the  rain.  From my experiences  snowshoeing a great many of  the local logging roads, the  worst ones for heavy snow accumulation are those than run  in the same direction as the  wind blows. The reason for this  being that the roads act much  the same as a creek bed, channeling the drier snow found at  the higher elevations causing it  to drift like rivers of white  powder.  Another reason some logging  roads actually disappear during  the winter is the fact that they  run along the open sides of  ridges and mountains. As the  snow blows downhill it is caught  on the ledge that is created by  the logging road.  In heavy snow areas such as  those to be found in the Chapman Creek watershed tegion,  the roads can fill with snow until they are no longer visible  because they become the same  as the surrounding slope. As the  rest of the snow melts away in  the spring, the last of the snow  that is out in the open can  usually be found on such roads  on the inside up against the  hill...the deepest area that snow  can accumulate.  1  Your community's  AWARD-WINNING  newspaper  \��^\^^"*^^  __   ~ i  -.   _t - - ��� ��*sr-  Coast News, February 26,1990  Vi.  Letters to the Editor  Bad forest management the culprit  Extremists happy,  the rest vague  Editor:  1 was very disturbed to see my  old college classmate Nicole  Parton in her last Friday's column in the Vancouver Sun  berating the green generation as  the greed generation who, in  calling for preservation of the  Carmanah Valley, ignore the  potential loss of $5 million in  lumber industry wages.  It's a sentiment that is  becoming all too common and  will become moreso here as the  controversy over preserving the  Tetrahedron plateau heats up.  I've been defending the  lumber industry longer than  Parton has and I say the green  generation could well be its  saviour.  In the Forest Policy white  paper approved at its last convention the International  Woodworkers of Amercia  (1WA) noted "many of the problems faced by our membership  today are the result of historic  mismanagement of our  forests."  The IWA has been saying this  for decades that I can  remember, but neither it nor  anybody else has been able to  get improved forest utilization  to the top of the political agenda in this province.  Now suddenly it is public  issue number one and most of  the credit is due to what Parton  pillories as green generation  propaganda.  In 1986 BC had 350 million  acres of forest land which the  Ministry of Forests itself  classified 'not sufficiently  restocked' (NSR). This is a  block of forest 52,000 times the  size of the Carmanah Valley  which is partially or fully out of  production not because recrea-  tionists are putting it to other  use, but because our government didn't do its job. Sweden  by comparison had zero NSR in  1986.  This is only one aspect of the  bad forestry practices which  .have already cost. tens of  thousands of jobs in the industry imd threaten to reduce it  to a mere shadow in the not-  too-distant future. There is  another whole area of bad industrial strategy which has cost  even more jobs.  In 1986 the BC wood products industry removed 77.5  million cubic metres of wood  and provided 74,000 permanent  jobs. In the same year, the  Swedish wood products industry removed 51 million cubic  'metres of Swedish wood and  produced 173,000 permanent  jobs.  The difference between the  two systems is largely the result  of Sweden's policy of ensuring  that their own workers process  their timber to the final consumer product, rather than exporting it in comparatively raw  states as is permitted in BC.  In addition, Sweden's intensive reforestation program provided 100,000 part time jobs.  Contrary to popular belief, the  Swedish workers were as well or  better paid than their BC  counterparts.  Low as economic benefits accruing to the BC public from  the forest industry are, they are  rapidly getting worse. In 1961  the BC forest products industry  produced 1.99 jobs per thousand cubic metres of wood cut,  but in 1986 it was producing only .93 jobs per thousand cubic  metres.  Each cubic metre cut by the  industry contributed 57 dollars  to the gross provincial product  (GPP) in 1961 but only 48.7  dollars in 1986. The portion of  the GPP attributable to the  forest industry fell from 13.8  per cent to 9.3 per cent during  the same 15-year period.  These are facts people like  Nicole Parton should think  about before buying MacMillan  Bloedel's arguments that the  preservation of a few thousand  hectares of BC's last remaining  old growth forest will create  significant loss of economic  benefit.  The handful of jobs at stake  in all the current preservation  campaigns is miniscule to the  benefit being lost through bad  forest practice and a cut-and-  run industrial strategy dictated  by the bottom line of a few  multinational corporations.  The great opportunity that  faces BC now is to turn the current surge of interest in forest  resource policy into political action that will correct the  mistakes of the past.  What is particularly troubling  about statements like Parton's  is that they threaten to deepend  division that exist between the  two groups who must lead this  turnaround - the green generation and the working public.  Howard White  Madeira Park, BC  Editor:  The extremists in APEC are  delighted with what they claim  as their latest triumph: preventing six-year-olds from having  access to the highly acclaimed  early French Immersion program.  The parents of the children  are tearful, outraged and incredulous.  The editor of the Sechelt  Press, comparing French Immersion to Unemployment Insurance, concludes that the  decision to abolish early French  Immersion "must  be fair if  neither extreme is happy."  The headline in the Const  News informs the public that  the French Immersion program  is being "modified". As huge  logging interests prepare to  'modify' the 300-year-old  spruce in the Carmanah Valley  and the US navy cruises into the  Strait of Georgia armed with  200 Hiroshimas worth of  'peaceful nuclear devices', I  have only one comment,  "Beam me up, Scotty."  Roger Lagasse  Welcome Woods  Submarine moratorium  Editor:  Friday night, February 16,  both the phone and electrical  power at CFMETR (Nanoose)  were out when a nuclear-  powered and nuclear-armed  submarine pulled into the harbour.  This particular submarine,  the USS Houston has a less than  impressive safety record. According to the Los Angeles Times  (June 20, 1989), the Houston  had two accidents in three days  last summer.  First, it snagged the tow line  of a tugboat, sinking the tug  and killing its pilot. Two nights  later it cut through the net of a  fishboat, resulting in the loss of  the net and catch.  DND's secret 'emergency  plan' ends at the fence around  the facility. There is no  emergency plan for civilians.  Nanaimo Hospital staff have indicated they are not interested in  having radiation victims  brought to them.  Nanaimo City Council say it  is unable to deal with a  radiological accident in  Nanoose. Neither is the Coast  Guard, the emergency program  or any other civic, provincial or  federal agency.  You will notice if you examine the fine print in your  home insurance policy, that  damages arising from nuclear  mishaps are excluded.  Since the local civilian  population   bears   the   risks  associated with these 'floating  Chernobyls', in all fairness we  should have a say in whether  they are invited here at all.  So far no one has asked me;  no one has asked city council;  no one has asked Victoria; no  one has asked the sea lions, or  the salmon; or the two million  people living adjacent to  Georgia Strait.  Questions which deserve  answers have been raised. Two  thirds of Canadians live in  Nuclear Weapons Free Zones,  including Nanaimo, Parksville,  Victoria, Vancouver, North and  West Vancouver and others.  Let's have a moratorium on  these 'invitations' until some  basic questions are answered.

The Town of Gibsons  Gibsons, BC  Re:  Gibsons  Landing  Park/  Theatre.  Dear Madam Mayor and Council members,  I agree with Lola Westell - the  name of "Gibsons Landing  Park" should not be. Why can't  we be. more original for a  change? For 20 years - in my  place of employment - we wished for more original names to  be used in our little village. We  have used, used, used the name  of that dear family until I am  sure the original owner is sick  and tired of it all.  Why not a questionnaire - in  each local paper - using all the  names submitted and see again  what the people want for their  little park? 1 say again because  of the displeasure we hear  around us in the choice of the  name.

Board of School Trustees  Dear Members:  As a parent of a child  presently enrolled in the French  Immersion program at Gibsons  Elementary, I would like to  thank you for your strong commitment to French Immersion  here on the Sunshine Coast.  As a taxpayer, however, I do  have some questions. As school  board trustees and custodians  of our tax dollars, how can you  justify terminating the early immersion program, which is subsidized by federal funds and  replacing it with a middle immersion program, which is not?  And what about the seven  grades worth of textbooks and  resource materials purchased  for the early immersion program which will be useless for  middle immersion?  s:  Are we to believe that they  will be traded across the board  for the needed middle immersion supplies? 1 think not.  When I discuss this matter  with other taxpayers and read  the letters these same taxpayers  write to the local newspapers, I  suspect that they feel this switch  of programs was done in the interest of saving us some  precious tax dollars - dollars  that, presumably, will be spent  on some alternative program  that will benefit all students  equally. Perhaps maybe even  Core French.  If this is not so, then 1 believe  it is your duty, as elected  representatives, to say so.  In fact, in light of the present  controversies, I think that a  total financial disclosure is in  order.

COVERING THE SUNSHINE COAST FOR OVER A GENERATION  Swccowt Agenda Qim^m  Sunnycrest Mall, Gibsons  zm  Qubptan  NOTARY PUBLIC  886*2000  r ��� m    M&-���  MaaaiMM Coast News, February 26,1990  Gospel Rock as seen  65 years ago and still today  by Norm Peterson  The following article was  taken from the first edition of  the Directory Guide ��� Gibsons  Landing aad District - printed  in 1924 by the publication.  "To many the view from  Shepherd's Bluff, or Gospel  Rock as it is more popularly  called, is unsurpassed, and there  are numbers who take the walk  again and again and never  weary of the rugged beauty of  the scene.  "The rock, outstanding on a  little eminence from the surrounding country, puts one in  mind of a Nature's grandstand,  and the picture unfolded to  one's vision at this point  delights the eye of the artist and  brings a sense of peace and tranquility to those whose lot it is to  reside and work in cities and yet  yearn for the joy which contact  with Nature's handiwork so  often engenders.  "The distance is about a mile  and a half in a southwest direction from Gibsons Landing,  and even the ravages of the  elements have seemingly done  their best, by moulding the formation of the structure to entice  one to linger a while.  "From here is obtained an  open view of the Gulf of  Georgia and some idea of how  the province is bound together  can be formed by observing the  various craft that quietly ply  their way upon its waters.  "There may be a boom of  logs slowly but surely heading  for the mills around Vancouver,  possibly having come from  many miles north. Then there  are the coast vessels of various  types seemingly in no hurry but  nevertheless passing from the  scene.  "After resting on the rock, if  time is no object, a short walk  through the woods will bring  the visitor to Gulf View Beach  which is coming to the front as a  holiday site, and assuming  bathing suits have been taken  along, a dip in the cool  refreshing water here will be  found enjoyable.  "Another good walk is to  continue along this route to  Clusters Landing, the return  journey being undertaken either  by trail or inland by the road,  the distance being about four  miles."  I think it shows that it is more  than just a piece of rock sticking  out of shore into the water and  that it was put there for all  mankind to go to and find  peace within himself.  1 know along with so many  others who have sat on the rock  that when you leave you feel a  calm has come over you and  you know someone else is  waiting their time to come and  sit, as people very seldom intrude on another's time and  space on that rock.  The rock is a place where  many a first kiss has been given,  hands asked for in marriage,  weddings performed and pictures of their happiest day  taken. 1 feel it is more than a  park, but more a special place  where people can come and find  peace with the world.  As the painted sign which was  painted early by someone says:  'Christ died for the ungodly'.  Let us hope that this not be  another burden on him and its  solitude be left for the enjoyment of all and not just a few.  Georcje    in    Gibsons  Censorship questions remain  by George Cooper, 886-8520  A committee of the Book and  Periodical Development Committee - origins and affiliations  unknown to me - had a  freedom- to-read-week recently.  For the sake of intellectual  freedom this committee supports educators and librarians  who often find their choice of  books challenged, and book  sellers threatened because of  materials they have imported.  To show up the puritanical  censorship in the past, examples  are listed in the committee's  press release. Ulysses by James  Joyce for instance was banned  in the US until 1935 and Mickey  Mouse in Stalin's USSR, and  W.O. Mitchel's Who Has Seen  The Wind.  To ban or not to ban.

CHILD RUNAWAY  Evelyn Lau was 14 when she  ran away from her home in  Vancouver and into a world of  drugs and prostitution. From  the diary she kept in the next  two years came this searing account of her life as a prostitute.  A child driven by her parents  to excel in school, feeling unloved, hating herself, Evelyn Lau  was only able to do her writing  secretly at home despite proof  of her talent in some published  pieces.  So matter-of-factly does she  write of herself in Runaway,  diary of a street kid that her  descriptions of her prostitution  -plied by mouth and hand - and;  of her need of drugs to dull tht  nausea, that the 'square' reader,  is certainly repelled but nop'  sickened.  So mature is her writing style,  so quiveringly tense her descriptions, so self-centered yet  fascinating her introspection,  that the fact she is a child in  mid-teens quite escapes the  reader's notice - at least as he  reads.  In this world of drugs and  prostitution Lau is advised by  one experienced, "Either you  hustle, or you forget the drugs  and anything else you want, and  go back to school...like any job,  if you're good at it people  pay...forget morals, sex is a  physical act for money...Make  your choice; school, a foster  home, and $10 a week or your  trade, drugs and your own place  right away."  Foster homes, group homes,  psychiatric care were made  available to her, and she used  them all. Suicidal depression  was escaped from when the  thought, 'Death is forever',  entered her mind.  She called herself slut and  trash in her street life but reflecting said, "There is something  worse than giving a stranger a  blow job, and I have lived it for  14 years."  She is ever looking for someone to love and be loved in  return. She is continually  betrayed. She reflects grimly  upon the 'outstanding' citizens  who used her.  Lau found she was recognized as somebody when she worked the street. "People give me  total approval." In time she  considered she was not trash  any more. On the street she felt  free. "No need to wear a mask  there to gain approval."  When she learned that she  had won third prize for stories  in a Burnaby Arts Council contest, and another for an essay,  'Streets', in a Canadian Author  and Bookman contest, she  began to realize there was  . another Evelyn Lau who yearned for recognition as a writer.  Although "Writing is a lonely  life", she "lets the girl who  wrote" revive and this book has  been the result of that.  After two years on the street  she went off drugs in order to  let her writing develop. She now  hopes writing will provide her a  living.  The book Ruawiy is certainly not comfortable reading,  It is a very revealing account,  however, of another way of life  that exists right here in our own  community.  s   z  G  F  Y  D  V  K  G  O  E  D  1  U  <;  V  T  F  s  P  L  E     W  N  F  G  U  W  B  C  F  J  K  P  D  j  E  K  Z  o  H  E  R     H  1  0  Z  B  Y  T  E  B  T  F  L  T  D  R  W  V  u  X  M  V     R  T  N  P  B  B  E  R  A  G  A  R  D  E  N  1  N  G  L  L  1      X  A  T  S  O  0  S  M  O  C  D  A  G  O  T  1  P  N  A  E  C     P  R  V  A  O  1  G  M  N  B  F  Y  T  M  U  A  K  V  N  M  E     N  O  P  I  K  B  L  E  G  E  Y  0  Z  T  X  L  N  R  O  A  K    Q  c  1  B  S  E  C  O  O  K  B  O  O  K  S  R  S  1  s  G  W    U  E  B  F  K  G  M  P  C  A  L  V  F  H  u  P  R  C  R  A  A     N  D  1  N  Y  L  D  N  E  1  R  F  F  O  A  L  N  Y  E  Z  R     S  E  1  A  1  G  M  N  B  F  Y  T  M  U  A  K  V  N  P  1  P     1  M  R  ��  G  E  M  N  O  1  H  S  A  F  J  F  A  F  L  N  A     L  O  A  N  O  S  K  E  R  T  P  R  N  C  R  Z  N  E  1  E  1     A  H  G  S  K  0  O  B  S  N  E  R  D  L  1  H  c  H  K  S  Find These Words  �����  1.

That is Florence Chaster's  secret to living a long, fulfilling  life.  For over six decades  Florence, who turns 90 in two  months, has enjoyed the  gorgeous gold, orange and  yellow sunsets from her waterfront home near Chaster Park  north of Gibsons.  She has seen the area change  from a summer retreat to a  community of permanent  residents. "We had lots of fun  back then. We didn't have  much money but we had lots to  eat. We had cows for our own  milk and butter, and we baked  our own bread."  Florence was stunned to learn  a chocolate bar now costs 75  cents, because in her day you  could buy a roast of beef for  that much. Back then a candy  bar cost a nickel.  Florence First came to the  Sunshine Coast in 1919 from  her hometown of Vancouver,  settling here permanently in  1924 when she married Harry  Chaster, who worked as a  maintenance supervisor for the  school district before passing  away 10 years ago.

She looked forward to  the summer months, to the  beach bonfires, and to the  dances every Wednesday and  Saturday night on the veranda  of the Chaster boarding house  which burned down only months after Florence married.  The couple lived in the large  house across the road from  Bonniebrook Lodge, operating  a summer general store "for a  good many y��ars."  Harry's parents first arrived  in Gibsons in 1906 and became  well-respected in the community, operating the first general  store and taxi in Gibsons Landing.  Florence is apologetic that  her memory isn't quite as good  as it was before her stroke five  years ago. But she still has an  impressive recall of her youthful  experiences. In spite of cramped  hands, she keeps busy typing  letters on an old manual  typewriter, a skill she perfected  while working as a magistrate's  stenographer in Vancouver.  With no road Florence hiked  for an hour along a trail to purchase supplies. Larger items  would come via Union Steamship, which stopped along the  Coast at various "landings"  once, and later, three times a  week. The steamships would  bring summer residents from  Vancouver, many of whom  boarded at Harry's parents  after they moved from Gibsons  to Chaster Creek in 1912.  Florence fondly remembers  the theatrical and musical performances at the Women's Institute Hall, built in 1929 using  volunteer labour.  "They were very good  amateur plays and were  especially interesting to us  because we knew the people acting in them."  Fishing was more a necessity  than a pastime for the Chasters.  Florence was the keenest angler  in the family. She would set off  alone in a 10-foot rowboat.  "We lived off fish. They were  plentiful in those days, both  salmon and cod."  One incident stands out in her  mind. She had hooked a 21  pound salmon through the tail  and had considerable trouble  landing it because the scaley  creature would keep slipping  out of her hands.  "I thought it would tow me  half way to Nanaimo before I  got it in the boat."  Living at the mouth of  Chaster Creek Florence was  well situated to observe spawning salmon. "The poor things  battered themselves to death."  Some years the salmon were so  plentiful "you could walk  across the creek," she says.  "Now they're getting scarcer  and scarcer."  Such is her fondness for the  fish that she thought it was cmel  last autumn when Department  of Fisheries personnel cut open  the spawning salmon to remove  their eggs (for research purposes). "I felt like yelling at  them to stop. But I didn't. I  guess it was none of my  business."  Harry wouldn't think twice  about braving the choppy swells  of Howe Sound with his wife  and two children in his 16-foot  boat with outboard motor. "On  a rough day we would get washed away. We never landed at  Horseshoe Bay dry."  "We used to take some awful  chances. You wouldn't do it  now but we thought nothing of  it. Harry grew up around rough  water and could handle a  boat."  Davis Bay  wants  dumpsters  by Rose Nicholson  A letter from the Davis  Bay/Wilson Creek Community  Association to the SCRD requesting some solution to the  ongoing problem of the garbage  at Davis Bay beach was passed  on to Sechelt Council for comment and recommendations.  Discussing the problem at the  February 21 meeting, council  agreed removal of the dumpsters might create more problems than it would solve.  After much discussion, council agreed that it would recommend that the SCRD retain the  dumpsters, but provide screening so they would not be as visible.  Coast News, February 26,1990 5.

This building remained  basically the same until the 80's  when the addition built with  funds provided by a government grant was highly welcomed.  The original librarian was  Mrs. Rooks, soon to be replaced by Mrs. Graham, who when  she was about to go on an extended visit to England asked  Flo McSavaney of Flume Road  to fill in while she was abroad.  As Flo says, "When Mrs.  Graham returned I just carried  on." Flo retired from the  library after 30 plus years of  dutiful work. She began her service in 1958 and received a  'Special Award' for the longest  service to the library after 25  years. She stayed on for another  five years, and still helps out occasionally to this date.  The library survives due to  provincial and regional district  grants, even though membership has grown immensely,  along with the population of the  Creek.  Last year, 1989, was a good  one. There were 650 book borrowers from 241 family  memberships, selecting from  some 1010 volumes.  Unfortunately the children's  Story Hour has been cancelled  due to lack of interest. I find  this suprising. Would any of  you parents like lo start  organizing and perhaps try  again? Books and reading are  such an important part of a  child's learning and they are  also fun.  Come on down to our quaint  and ever increasing in readership and popularity library. The  yearly membership for family  or single is only $3. What a  bargain!  The library gratefully accepts  book donations. Cash donations are few and far between,  but they do happen. Just recently a very generous person left  $1000 to the library.  Library hours: Tuesdays 6 to  9 pm; Thursdays 3 to 6 pm and  Saturdays 10 am to 1 pm.

Grades 1 to 7  participated in this show. Each  student had a partner, so that  the ideas, artistry and work  were shared.  Some of the displays included  'What's better for you - Coke or  7Up?' Doesn't Coke eat a nail if  left soaking in a glass of it?  Cactus plants like to live in  hot temperatures. Megan Randall's microscope zeroing in on  cactus prickles proved this  theory.  There were also many excellent displays on the concerns  for the environment, such as  water pollution, plastic  disposal, etc.  Bzaozs-BBzr  The  SYLVIA  Hotel  '*m  Make the Sylvia part  of your Vancouver adventure...

The puppies were inside a burlap sack.  The good news is that two of  the puppies were adopted  almost at once. One by the person who found them and  another by one more good-  hearted person.  So there are two left. They  are adorable, tiny Chihuahua  type pups if anyone has room  for one.  The SPCA offers a spaying  and neutering service which  would make the destroying of  unwanted puppies and kittens a  thing of the past.  Also for adoption are two  cats, both males, neutered and  very affectionate. One is orange  and white, fluffy, about one  and one half years old. The  other is white with medium  length hair and is three years  old.  If you feel your home is not  complete without one of these  companions, call the SPCA.  They'll be glad to hear from  vou.

The quote made by Sechelt  District Administrator Malcolm  Shanks that "It might make  more sense to use somewhere  like Coopers Green for offloading" was what caused the  consternation among residents.  We all know that, in the first  place this is now a Regional  Park, and, in the second place  there are many overhead wires  there as well as an impossible  . corner for the big vehicles to  turn on.  Nevertheless, it would be wise  to keep a watchful eye. One  never knows!  While on the subject of barged houses, 1 have been requested to inform our residents  of a petition which is at the B&J  Store, Milore Nursery and in  the offices of both papers.

Sechelt Seniors  Spring harbinger  by Larry Grafton  Depending on what part of  our country was involved, the  recent appearance of the proverbial ground hog and his  shadow, or lack of it indicated  an early spring.  Obviously the robins are in  accord with the ground hog,  since two robin-red-breasts were  spotted in West Sechelt last  week cavorting in the snow,  along with a winter dwelling,  varied thrush. They must be trying to tell us something.  I haven't heard of any  sightings of hummingbirds yet  but they normally arrive in early  March or sooner, so it's time to  get the feeders out.  SCHEDULE CHANGE  A great majority of our functions and branch activities have  started at 1:30 in the afternoon  for years. Due to circumstances  beyond control it has been  necessary to alter the schedule  on Tuesdays only from 1:30 to 1  pm.  This will affect those  members who normally attend  the whist, cribbage and aggravation activities. With this  change of schedule the 69crs  will come into the hall to prac  tice between 3 and 4:30 pm at  which time the hall is scheduled  for rental.  If we have any 'doubting  Thomases' in our midst who  feel we don't need a new hall let  them stand up and be counted.  The need is there. We're being  squeezed.  GARAGE SALE  While we're on the subject of  being squeezed for space, we  must look ahead to our annual  garage sale which has yet to be  scheduled on a date, but will  quite probably be in August.  Now is the time to start accumulating items for this sale,  but unfortunately donated  items, with very few exceptions,  cannot be stored at the hall due  to lack of space.  The committee in charge  would very much appreciate  donors of items for sale to hold  them intact until such time as  they can be accommodated.  In rare instances some items  may find a resting spot in some  kind members' basement awaiting the sale if absolutely essential, but the preference, of  course, is to have the donor set  the sale items aside for the  branch.

Cats, for example,  will go forth and multiply with  great enthusiasm. Of course this  results in a litter of kittens, and  now things get interesting.  What to do with all those cute  little kitties?  Some people choose to give  them to other people, but  without much concern of how  they will be looked after.  Other people decide that a life  at the dump is the best idea. The  cute kitten can fend for itself in  a filthy disease-ridden environment and survive (at least for a  short time) on rotting garbage.  Others figure that abandoning it  anywhere is a good idea, and  they tell thmselves (and their  children) that a cat is capable of  living happily and healthily  without any help from humans.  The least popular method of  dealing with unwanted kittens is  to kill them. I find it interesting  that people think it kinder to let  an animal suffer for an indefinite period of time than to  end its life quickly and relatively  painlessly.  A less-obvious alternative is  having your pet neutered or  spayed. Believe it or not, the  animal does not need to have a  litter to reach emotional and  spiritual fulfillment. Your  children do not need to witness  the miracle of birth. The  surgery, with the help of the  SPCA, cost $20.  Last week I had two young  cats "fixed". Lyle Forbes  wondered why I took them all  the way to Sechelt. He says that  Joe Diesel does a find job of fixing his cat.  BIRTHDAYS  A new Pender Harbour  baby! Congratulations to Nat  and Norm Goundry of Sunsoft  Electronics on the birth of a  baby boy on February 21.  Suzie Courtney celebrated her  90th birthday last week with  family and friends at a surprise  party at the Pender Harbour  Restaurant. Suzie says she  doesn't want any more parties  until her 100th birthday.  It's becoming a trend in  Pender Harbour to fly off to  Hawaii when you're having  your 40th birthday...seems that  nobody puts up those damned  signs down there. The latest  temporary escapee is our Doctor Terry Amiel.  Once one passes the Big 4-0,  however, birthday behaviour  changes dramatically. Take  Spaceman for example, who  made a point to come all the  way home to celebrate his birthday at the Garden Bay Pub on  Friday.  CHAMBER MEETING  This month's guest speakers  at the Pender Harbour and Egmont Chamber of Commerce  are from the Business Develop-  MING  ment Centre in Sechelt and they  will answer questions about  Starting a Home Based  Business, an upcoming  workshop co-sponsored by the  chamber.  Other items on the agenda include our Info Centre. If you're  interested in seeing it open, interested enough to volunteer  some time to help in its operation, please come to the  meeting.  The Pender Harbour and Egmont Chamber of Commerce  meets tonight (Monday) at 7:30  pm in the Legion hall.  CATERER WANTED  (This isn't really an ad, it's an  invitation.)  Pender Harbour will soon be  visited by Leiutenant Governor  Lam and his wife, and the  Chamber of Commerce will  hold a dinner in his honour  (their honours?).  Anyone interested in catering  this event is asked to contact  committee chairperson Ann  Barker.  Police  news  At some time between the  hours of 8:30 pm and 8:30 the  next morning, gear and fuel  were stolen from a chipper  barge moored near Avalon Log  Sort.  If you have any information  call Gibsons RCMP or Crime-  stoppers 886-TIPS.  On February 13 a young offender was found to be in  possession of property stolen  from unlocked vehicles at the  Gibsons cinema and from other  sources not as yet identified. All  the property taken from the  parked vehicles was recovered.  Charges are pending.  A brawl outside Elphie's  Cabaret about 2:30 am Tuesday, February 20, raised such a  riotous clamour that citizens in  their homes several streets up  the hill were rudely awakened  from their sleep.  All members of the Gibsons  detachment were called out to  defuse the fracas which involved a crowd of thirty to forty  persons.  Three residents of the Sunshine Coast were arrested, two  for creating a disturbance and  one for assault.  SECHELT RCMP  Investigation into recent incidents of theft of shakes from  Wilson Creek has resulted in the  apprehension and charge of one  adult male. The stolen shakes  were recovered in the Clear-  brook area.  On February 18 at about 7:45  pm a single vehicle MVA on  Highway 101 near Field Road  sent one person to hospital. The  vehicle went off the northbound  lane to the left and struck a rock  face, extensively damaging the  vehicle. The driver was taken to  St. Mary's Hospital and then  Vancouver General Hospital  with her injuries.  On February 18 a fight in  Sechelt resulted in one adult  male being charged with Assault  Causing Bodily Harm. The victim suffered a broken nose, a  broken tooth, and black eyes.  On February 8 a juvenile  male was attacked by an adult  male. The victim suffered a  fractured jaw. The adult male  has been charged with Assault  Causing Bodily Harm.

Coast News, February 26,1990  LEISURE  King off the Safecrackers  The desperate years  Rhythms  of Life  by Peter Trowrr  Of magic  and miracles  by Penny Fuller  The world is full of magic  and miracles, if you have the  eyes to see it. In our attempts to  be sensitive, caring human beings it's easy to become weighed  down by the suffering around  us, even if things are going well  lor us in our own lives. This is  especially true of the water  signs: Cancer, Scorpio and  Pisces and the latter is the  worsl.  II you were born between  February 19 and March 20 your  Sun sign is Picses, and since the  end of ihe 19th century your  ruling planet has been powerful  bul nebulous Neptune. Prior to  that, however, Pisces was ruled  by ihe planet of abundance,  justice and joie de vie - Jupiter.  As co-rulers, they bring out  the sensitive, intuitive and em-  pathetic quality that Pisces are  well known for. Their less  positive aspects may be exager-  ration and confusion - equally  familiar descriptions of the Sun  sign.  Pisces is symbolized by two  lish, swimming in opposite  directions, and as with the other  dual sign (Gemini) you have  tendency to extreme light and  extreme darkness, but without  the mental clarity of Gemini  and you may feel 'victimized'  by the world.  It's time to take control of  your life in a positive way, and  your birthday is an ideal time to  make the necessary resolutions.  For one last time, think about  all the crisis and turmoil around  you. You know all the things  you felt you ought to be able to  fix, but can't: poverty, discrimination, war, your parents'  divorce, your best friend's boss,  your child's severe case of  puberty.  Now re-focus your perspective. (It may be difficult to begin  with if your focuser has rusted  in place, but work at it.)  Start to focus on the positive  - no, just the positive - the  magical, miraculous things that  happen around you. 'Think  about the friend that phoned  just when you needed it; the fact  that the bills did, in fact, get  paid once more; the song that  came on just when you were  feeling a certain way; think of  anything, everything that could  be called a positive coincident.  Now claim it. You made that  happen. You created something  positive when you needed it.  This is the flip-side, the happy side of taking responsibility  for your own reality. If you  have fallen into the habit ot trying to figure out how you create  the problems in your life, for  three months try to do the same  thing with the good things you  create.  This is probaby exactly what  you think, a new rendition of  the old,"Count Your Blessings"  cliche. But it works.  The more you recognize and  acknowledge your ability to  create harmony, beauty and  abundance in your life, the  more it will manifest. Positive  reinforcement works!  So claim it all...claim the  good health. Claim the good .  friend, the good weather and.  the improving political atmosphere in the world. And  don't forget the mountains and  the forest, the dawns and the  sunsets...don't forget the  sunsets. You did good, kid!  "Charges? What charges?"  Wilson gets a nasty feeling of  deja vu. Is he being thrown yet  another curve ball?  "I have the signed depositions of two witnesses that you  were observed performing an  unnatural act with Convict St.  James."  "That's absolutely preposterous!" Wilson bursts out.  "Certainly 1 know St. James  but there's never been anything  improper between us. I don't  believe in that sort of thing.  Who laid these charges?"  "The charges were laid by  Convict Frank Smith and  Guard Noble."  "But can't you see this is a  blatant frame-up? They suspect  I'm the one who sent you those  letters. They're just out for  revenge."  "I have considered that  possibility," the Warden admits. "I've also been in touch  with the San Quentin author  ities - and there is no evidence of  homosexual behaviour in your  records there. Nonetheless, the  accusations have been made and  the case will have to be tried.  You have two options. You can  face a Warden's Court or elect  for a public jury trial in  Kingston.  "Due to the distasteful nature  of these charges, I would suggest the former course might  prove less embarrassing, and  the Warden's Court is closed.  "I'll take my chances in the  outside courts," declares  Wilson, without thinking twice  about it. "Smith and Noble are  lying in their teeth. I'm completely innocent - and I intend  to prove it."  "Suit yourself," says the  Warden. "For the time being,  you will be relieved of your  hospital duties and segregated in  the Keeper's Hall cells. I'll arrange for a trial date at the  earliest opportunity."  In the segregation unit,  Wilson begins to plan his  defense against the gross in-  Participants in Canada's Book Voyage.

P One of these books wjs on  '���Mhe Sunshine Coast last week  and Richard Curll, who administers the local Adult Basic  Literacy Education (ABLE)  program, told the Coast News  what is happening on the Coast.  ABLE is a program for adult  learners and the objective is to  help any adult who, for any  number of reasons, is not 'functionally literate'.  'Functional literacy' is defined as the ability to read or write  at the Grade 8 level, and  although many funtionally illiterate adults can read, it is  often a difficult process for  them and they have problems  with things like following written directions or filling out  forms. Most of the time these  same people function very well  in every other part of their lives,  but in our information based  society, the ability to read well  and easily is critical.  Gibsons resident Marcella  Wiebe is the mother of two  small children. She grew up in  Mexico and came to Canada  nine years ago. She speaks and  reads English well, but wants to  be able to write well too.  "The classroom situation  wasn't for me" she said. "I'm  busy with my family, and I  didn't need to learn all the  things that were being taught in  the class. I work alone with my  tutor, and she teaches me the  things I want to learn."  For more information on  ABLE, phone Richard Curll at  Continuing Education,  885-2991, or at home, 886-2761.  decency charge. Convict St.  James will be of no help. His  grasp of reality is tenuous at the  best of times. Wilson's only  chance of clearing himself is to  accuse Smith and Noble of their  smuggling activities in open  court. It will cause him to be  branded as a blatant informer  -but he can see no other way.  Unless the reason for the  frame-up is spelled out graphically, he might even be found  guilty. The consequences of that  eventuality are too odious to  think about. He must publicly  incriminate Smith and Noble  and he knows that doing so will  place him in grave danger from  other inmates.  Herb Wilson engages a  Kingston lawyer, W.F. Nickel  K.C., as his counsel for the upcoming trial. Nickel, aware of  Wilson's difficult position in  regard to the convict population, advises him to reveal no  more than is absolutely  necessary, to clear himself of  the morals charge.  The first trial is a brief affair.  It takes place in the Kingston  General Assizes on June 10,  1938. Wilson, in keeping with  his lawyer's suggestion, exhibits  considerable reticence on the  stand.  He declines to reveal the full  extent of the illegal activities in  the Prison Hospital. Wilson's  hesitation only serves to confuse  the jury members. They stay out  for almost five hours and return  to announce that they have been  unable to reach a verdict. The  Judge dismisses the hung jury  and commits Wilson to stand  re-trial on the same charge in  September.  To be continued...  OPEN HOUSE  Sat. ft Sun.   10-2  eoo Cascade Cres.

This acquisition was made  possible by the merging of two  major piano funds thai existed  on the Coast plus a very large  contribution from Howe Sound  Pulp and Paper.  "This piano will be used by  students for exams and recitals  as well as for concerts by  visiting artists," said Barbara  Cattanach, president of the  Sunshine Coast Music Festival  Society.  Sunshine Coasl Arts Council  President Therese Egan pointed  out that the committee will be  selling up rules and rates for  piano usage. "We hope to make  il as accessible as possible and  with low rates."  Mr. Bill Hughes of HSPP  was on hand for the ceremony  and accepted gracefully the  thanks of the committee for the  generous donation.  "The greatest accomplishment was lo get two committees  on the Sunshine Coast working  together," he remarked.  Thanks were also expressed  lo Reverend June Maffin and  Ihe Anglican Church committee  for their generosity in providing  Ihe space in their hall in which  to house this beautiful instrument.  The Countryside Concerts  committee is presently booking  top pianists to perform in the  Twilight Theatre for the  1990/91 season. The piano has  already been booked by the  Music Festival Society for its  April 1990 Festival and will also  be showcased at the Twilight  Theatre on Sunday, April 8 at 2  pm in a recital by Bruce Vogt.  Tickets and further information will be forthcoming.  Adequate funds have been  allocated to provide for future  maintenance, moving and storage, and towards the costs of  the eventual permanent housing  of the piano.  Joan Warn  display  The late Joan T. Warn  (1920-1988) was a woman of  many talents and much determination.  As a farm wife on Gambier  Island she raised a large family  without electricity or running  water.  As a teacher, after moving to  the Sunshine Coast in I9SS, she  was very capable and much loved by her students.  When she retired early to pursue painting as a career, she explored any option that could  develop her abilities, mastering  oil, acrylic and watercolour  painting techniques, as well as  relief, silkscreen and lithography printmaking.  The almost unlimited energy,  optimistic outlook and iron will  which she possessed served her  well until the final year when all  failed her.  The Arts Centre's Retrospective of her work includes many  excellent examples of the quality  and variety for which she was  known. There is also a display  of work by her students to show  the success of her encouragement to artists of all ages.  This show can be seen during  the hours of Wednesday to  Saturday, 11 to 4 and Sundays I  to 4 pm until March 10.

But that was no problem for our gracious host, Ron, who waved us towards one  of the many tables offering a fabulous view of Gibsons Harbour.  It was a slow evening which meant we were treated to extra  personal service. My companion and I ordered the evening's  special - prime rib of beef, preceded by a delicious cauliflower  and cheese soup for her and a crisp salad with tangy dill dressing for myself. The fresh-baked rolls served hot in a basket  were much appreciated by our ravenous nine-year-old  daughter.  The prime rib arrived thick and juicy, crowned with a  golden baked Yorkshire pudding which Matt, the chef, was  justifiably proud of that particular evening. On the side were  home-fried potatoes and sauteed zucchini slices.  'Supremo' is how our child described the tender, golden  chicken strips, which came with a zippy orange/curry dip and  trench fries.  But the best was yet to come. Our host Ron described the  specialty desert, Ganoche, a chocolate-coated wafer with a  pecan crust served with an ambrosial caramel sauce and  whipped cream.  We weren't quite willing to believe Ron when he told us the  desert had no calories and when it arrived we knew he was  just pulling our leg. But although the sinfully rich dish probably was the caloric equivalent of the main course, we were  upon our first taste, quite willing to forgive our host's good-  natured stretching of the truth.  Our daughter eagerly spooned her way to the bottom of  her chocolate mousse - smooth and not too sweet - where  there awaited a layer of raspberries.  All in all, it was a meal to remember, served with humour  and courtesy and well worth the money.  Andy's Restaurant- Every Wednesday nighl is Prime Rib Night.

Our club looked great, all  decorated with palm trees and a  coconut for every team entered.  The spiel started early Friday  and the club buzzed with excite  ment until it ended late Sunday  afternoon.  This is the last big bonspiel of  the year and again a lot of people need to be thanked for all  the work they have put into  making this a successful 'spiel.

We appreciate your help and  dedication.  The ladies game tends to be  more a draw game, although I  saw a lot of fine knockout shots  being executed this weekend.  There is a time in a game when  each strategy should be used.  The draw game is a risky  game and playing draw early in  the game is not recommended  by the experts until after you are  down by several points. The  draw game is often better on  our ice because of the swing  which can often pull a rock six  feet or more.  On swingy ice the knockout  game is a little more difficult to  execute.  When you have last rock, the  corner guard is often a favourite  strategy, followed by a draw  come-around if the opposition  does not successfully remove  your corner guard or they have  a nose hit leaving their stone as  a corner guard. If you establish  one side of the house and you  get the chance, you then set up  the same positions on the opposite side of the house.  Any opposition stones that  stop behind the tee line make  good places to freeze to,  although this should only be attempted in an emergency, as  any opposing stones in play may  end up as counters.  If you don't have last rock, a  favourite strategy is to ask your  lead to throw a stone up covering the center line about six to  eight feet in front of the house.  If the opposition misses taking out that stone or makes a  direct hit on it, this gives you an  opportuntiy to come around  behind to the button and sets up  the possibility of a steal of one  or more points.

Coast  seen as  film site  by Caryl Worden  The Sunshine Coast will  become a 'preferred location'  for movie production if the BC  and Yukon Council of Film  Unions has its way.  In a letter received at the  SCRD board meeting Thursday  night, Sechelt was listed as one  of seven BC municipalities being asked to participate in a  Preferred Locations Program  being put together by the council, an umbrella group for five  film-related unions.  Through the program, the  selected sites are promoted to  major production companies.  The letter stated that over the  last three years, the council's  promotional campaigns have  totalled $500,000.  The letter also touted the  economic advantages to chosen  areas considering the 'economic  multiplier effect of motion pic-  lure production'. For every  dollar spent by a production  company, $2.50 is generated  through the spinoffs.  In return for these benefits,  participating communities  guarantee producers that public  loations can be used at no  charge; there be "one-stop  shopping for permits etc.";  goods and services will be sold  "at or below the most  favourable rates offered to any  other client"; for such events as  night shooting or street shooting  "favourable consideration (be  given) when reviewing the relaxation of local by-laws."  Each year the council chooses  several areas for the program  and for 1990 they've targeted  Victoria, Kelowna, Kamloops,  Whitehorse, Dawson City,  Nelson and Sechelt.  "When they say Sechelt,  they're not just meaning the  District Municipality of Sechelt  but the entire Sunshine Coast,"  said SCRD Director Gordon  Wilson who was initially contacted about the program.  Wilson said he's already aware  of a Universal Studios film project that is interested in the area.  ''However they need one  municipal authority to deal  with. They want to be able to  come in and get their permits  quickly and easily and get to  work without hassle," Wilson  said.  The board aproved Wilson's  motion that he promote the  proposal to Sechelt Council.

Mike took many pictures  of this egret as it let him move  very near.  In R.T. Peterson's Field  Guide to Western Birds, Peterson predicts that this small  white heron that associates with  grazing cattle will invade the  southwest United States. When  this was written in 1960 there  were no records of it west of 100  degrees.  This 20-inch heron was first  reported in the US in 1952 and  had reached Texas by 1955.  There have been frequent  sightings in Saanich on Vancouver Island over the past five  years. The egret seen here was  the second sighting on the Sunshine Coast, the last reported  four years ago.  EAGLES  The bethhcagles are much in  evidence of late. Listen for their'  'twitterings' while you walk, as  this is their courting period.  They often communicate while  circling overhead. Said by a few  to mate in flight, this has not  been definitely proven. Still,  keep a watch, you never know  what you will see.  Someone who knows my interest in nature told me of see  ing 67 bald eagles at the dump  recently. Seems many hawks  were observed also.

So said Jeremy Frith who  asked the Economic Development Commission to facilitate  recycling efforts in Gibsons and  Sechelt by encouraging  volunteer efforts.  The EDC agreed to send a  letter of commendation to Shop  Easy and invited the operators  of the recycling program to attend a meeting to provide the  commission with an update.  PUBLIC NOTICE  All groups or individuals who wish to  arrange for the use of ball fields at  Brothers Park this season are invited to  attend a meeting on Wednesday, March 7,  1990 at 7:30 pm in the Council Chamber of  the Municipal Hall at 474 South Fletcher  Road, Gibsons. At that meeting a  schedule will be arranged which will allow  the greatest possible number of groups to  play on the fields.   are on a lawn one must be very  assertive, clapping hands and  marching toward the flock until  they decide to saunter elsewhere.  One of this flock has an injured right leg. It is most painful  to watch it limp along, always  last.  It is interesting to note there  are always two or more on  watch, necks extended upward,  while the rest of the flock feed.  PYGMY OWL  This tiny (7-7 Vi inch) 'earless'  owl was spotted sitting on a  neighbour's roof, wings akimbo, like he was drying them or  he was cooling off. During the  day he flew across the road to a  treetop where he would remain  awhile, then return to the roof  top.  This was most definitely an  owl although my identification  could be wrong because of the  poor tight that day. Very interesting to observe.  /Anyone with things of this  Mod, please give me a call at  8��r2954.  SHOP LOCALLY!  SUPPORT YOUR FRIENDS  & NEIGHBOURS  It is an economic fact that every dollar spent locally does  the work of $5 or $6 as it circulates throughout our  communities. It's called the multiplier effect.  Cash must circulate to keep our communities healthy and  the goods, services and jobs we want close by.  Every dollar,earned on the Sunshine Coast and spent  elsewhere is several dollars lost to the local community.  THINK ABOUT IT.

Pender Wildlife Club learns
of drlftnet fishing devastation
A large turnout at a meeting
of the Pender Harbour Wildlife
Society held at Madeira Park
Elementary School on February
20, witnessed an excellent film
presented by Ray Phillips. The
film Stripmining ihe High Seas
was made by the Earthtrust
Driftnet Expedition in 1988 and
shows the destructive fishing
tactics of the driftnet fleet in the
Pacific Ocean.
It is estimated that during
1988, 200,000 steelhead and
50,000 metric tonnes of North
American salmon were trapped
along with 750,000 seabirds,
14,000 Dohl's porpoises and
hundreds of young whales, seals
and dolphins killed.
Thirty thousand miles of net
are set every night by the fleet
and 600 miles of ghost nets are
abandoned yearly. These ghost

nets continue to fish and
destroy wildlife for years.
One thousand Japanese,
Taiwanese and Korean driftnet
fishing vessels participate in the
North Pacific Squid Fishery,
which is the world's largest
fishing fleet. Each vessel fishes
20 to 60 miles of monofilament
driftnet daily; an estimated total
of 2,000,000 miles of this 'practically invisible' net was fished
during the 1988 season.
While harvesting several hundred million squid, many of
these high seas fishermen also illegally catch millions of immature salmon and steelhead of
North American origin.
Despite treaties to protect our
fish, North American fishermen
are experiencing dramatic
declines in some salmon and
steelhead runs. The Asian high
seas driftnet fisheries are expanding yearly, continued salmon
piracy will soon destroy many
American and Canadian fisheries.
The video film is available for
individuals and groups to borrow and show to interested people here in Pender Harbour.

for teens
In Gibsons
by Dave Fraser
A group aimed at starting a
drug and alcohol-free drop-in
centre for teens wants an endorsement from Ihe Town of
At the February 20 Gibsons
Council meeting youth worker
Jim Doyle spoke on behalf of
Gibsons Outreach, formed after
a group of leens and parents
met February 12 at Elphinstone
High School to discuss a serious
lack of activities for young people in the Gibsons area.
"We need lo suggest alternatives to hanging oul at malls,
drinking and gelling stoned,"
said Doyle, recently hired by the
Ministry of Social Services and
Housing and Mayor's Task
Force on Drugs. He was invited
to the town's committee-as-a-
whole meeting February 27 lo
explain Ihe program in greater
Doyle said the town's endorsement is necessary lo apply
for a grant from the BC Youth
Advisory Council. The drop-in
centre program would include
games such as pool, chess and
ping-pong, as well as films,
leadership training and discussion groups.
Gibsons Outreach has noted
that it has been promised a letter of support from Sargeant Ed
Hill of the Gibsons RCMP
Alderman Ken Collins,
however, took issue with
Doyle's claim that youths are
bothering shoppers. "You're
painting a picture of our mall
like Granville Mall. I've never
seen any of our shoppers
But Doyle invited Collins to
go to the mall and speak to merchants fjvho complain business is
5 due to teen harassment.

Coast News, February 26,1990  EVERYONE SHOPS  at  iMto THRIFTY'S  GIBSONS f^K  mm  ��������-  Letters to the Editor  Community must control local resources  Mf-'UI ar Ni 591  ���bavt Khi Lucky DUtar, GlbtMi  NOTICE OF  PUBLIC  HEARING  Zoning Amendment  Bylaw No. 555-28,1990  Pursuant to Sections 956 and 957 of the Municipal Act, a  PUBLIC HEARING will be held at the Municipal Hall at 474  South Fletcher Road at 7:00 p.m. on Tuesday, March 13,  1990 to consider Zoning Amendment Bylaw No. 555-28,  1990 which is proposed to amend the Town of Gibsons  Zoning Bylaw No. 555,1986.  The intent of the amending bylaw Is as follows:  1. That certain parcel or parcels of land In the Town of Gibsons more particularly known and legally described as  Blocks 6 and that part of Block 7, D.L. 842, Plan 6755, as  shown outlined on the map below, Identified as Appendix "A" to Bylaw No. 555-28,1990 be rezoned from the  existing Single-Family Residential Zone 4 (R-4) to the  proposed Single Family Residential Zone 1 (R-1).  A copy of the amending bylaw Is available for inspection at  the Gibsons Municipal Office, 474 South Fletcher Road,  between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., Monday to  Friday.  Rob Buchan  MUNICIPAL PLANNER & APPROVING OFFICER  Editor:  Re: Future of the  Tetrahedron Plateau  I would like to call your attention to a factual error in your  coverage of the latest meeting  on the future of the  Tetrahedron Wilderness.  Your article refers to "the 20  hectare slash". In fact current  plans call for two blocks to be  clear cut within the trail/cabin  system in the immediate future.  The first "20 hectare" dear cut  will be in the area of Gilbert and  Edwards Lake. The second  clear cut will be located bel.ind  the Bachelor Lake cabin and extend towards Mayne Lake.  With this in mind I would like  to point out that there is broad  ly based opposition to these  plans from three perspectives.  First consider that our watershed has already sustained more  timber extraction than any  other lower mainland watershed  and that as a result we now have  some water quality problems.  Although the Water Management Branch has begun a study,  its report will not be released  until December 1990. Meanwhile timber harvesting is to  continue.  Secondly consider that these  logging sites are high elevation  areas of very low biological activity, which will require at least  200 to 300 years to regenerate  minimum size saw-log dimension trees. At least in theory  forest regeneration is possible  on these sites but in fact the expectation is probably a fantasy,  more likely to result in hectares  of weather damaged shrubs of  the sort easily found on the top  of Mt. Elphinstone or on the  clear cut facing Bachelor Lake.  This is not "Forestry". This  is resource destruction for short  term gain.  Thirdly consider the recreational potential for the area.  The Federal Government has  already invested a large sum of  money in trails and cabins and  people and organizations from  around the province have  recognized the unique beauty of  the Tetrahedron Plateau. We  ourselves have little else in the  way of wilderness that is nearby  and accessible.  I ask you, are we so uninformed and poverty stricken  that we cannot preserve this  small jewel for ourselves and  posterity?  In conclusion I would like to  say that 1 fear that the local  Forest Service is using committees and public meetings to  dismiss and confuse the community.  We must come together as a  community to demand control  of local resources as has been  successfully done in Tofino and  Mission. Thank you very much.  Daniel Bouman  Name machinations are of interest  Editor's Note: Hie fallowing  wis received for publication.  Gibsons Town Council  Dear Mayor & Councillors:  RE: Sterile Names  I have been following with interest what appears to be the  machinations of council over  the naming of the park which  was recently acquired by the  Town of Gibsons.  There appear to be rumours  moving about the town that  despite a large number of names  on petitions, as well as individual letters to name the new  park Winegarden Park, that  council has decided to name the  area Gibsons Landing Park instead.  I am of the opinion that the  name Gibsons is already well  represented if not overused  through the communtiy for  private businesses, public offices, charitable and other  societies. This being the case I  openly wonder if council is not  appearing just a bit boring by  applying such a name as Gibsons Landing Park to this park.  On the other hand the words  'wine' and 'garden' not only  seem very appropriate for a  park but I also believe will leave  a more lasting impression on the  minds of its visitors as a name.  Winegarden Park has a better  ring to it don't you think?  Surely Gibsons council can  show a little more imagination  than applying an over-worn  name which seems more a  choice of haste to get the day's  work done.  Could you not consider using  a name which would be pleasant  sounding, be remembered and  which would stir the minds of  visitors who might wonder as to  the reason for the name of the  park? Winegarden Park seems  to suit such an aim.  Come on councillors, show  some initiative. I am not of the  opinion that the electors voted  you into office because they felt  you were a dull lot. I beleive it is  now your move to prove this  also.  J. Patterson  Immersion decision hurts all  Editor's Note: Hie following  wis received for publication.  Mr. Clifford Smith  Superintendent  School District 46  Dear Mr. Smith  I would not have moved my  family to the Sunshine Coast 14  months ago from Richmond  had it not been for the  availability of an early French  Immersion program for my two  youngest children and the continuance of the early French Immersion program for my two  older children, now in grades  two and three.  It was difficult enough knowing we would have to settle for  grade one entry rather than  kindergarten - an opportunity  that our two older children had.  My third child is due to be  enrolled in grade one this coming September, with the youngest coming up behind for 1992.

You have a successful program in place with  enthusiastic and dedicated  teachers, enthusiastic and  dedicated parents and most importantly, enthusiastic and  dedicated students.  You say the board is reaffirming your strong commitment to the continuance of  French Immersion in the  district, but how can that be  when you are splitting up  families by not having the program open to younger siblings  of students currently in the program?  Siblings are entitled to the  same opportunity. They want to  be included in the dinner hour  conversations about their day  - to understand and to be  understood.  You also say in the Vancouver Sun news article of  February 14, that the approximately 150 students currently in  grades one to four will not be  affected.  In the sense that you say you  are ensuring the lead classes  progress through the school  system and including a French  Immersion option at the secondary level, that may be true, but  in the sense of family life and  extra curricular activities, such  as attending cultural events presented in French, going to family French camps, and even watching French television and  listening to French radio, they  are very much affected.  Do many of us want these activities curtailed because the  younger siblings won't understand what is going on or is being said? Do you expect to see  shared family time have one  parent spending time in one  language-related activity with  one or some of the children, and  the other parent be yet  somewhere else with the others?  Everyone would suffer  somehow. We desire to enrich  our family time, benefiting all.  Bilingual conversation is  most readily achieved by early  immersion in the other  language. Middle Immersion  benefits rules and grammar,'  fluency in speaking then  becomes more difficult and further out of reach as far as spon-  tanety and accent in speech is  concerned.  Early immersion favours a  necessary balance in all these  factors of acquiring and utilizing a second language.  Carol A. LeBlanc McCrimmon  Sechelt, BC  Redrooffs concern  Editor:  RE: 'Redrooffs, a Slum'  'Redrooffs is starting to look  like a slum...some of those old  houses they're bringing in look  terrible...the area is getting ruined by those barged-in  houses...our house cost me and  my wife over $100,000 to build,  just down the street they  brought in one you could buy  for a dollar...what's going to  happen to our property values?'  These are just some of the  comments we've heard from  angry and dismayed Redrooffs  residents. Gibsons area  residents don't have this problem. Their municipality  wouldn't grant marina landing  rights to the house movers.  Sechelt area residents don't  have this problem either. Their  municipality brought in a bylaw which specifically deals with  the barged-in houses. It states  that the value of a moved in  house must be one and one  quarter times the value of the  existing homes in the immediate  neighbourhood. ,  Do you live in the regional  district? Would you like to see  the district introduce the Sechelt  house movers by-law? Please  write your area representative or  Peggy Connor, Chairman, Sunshine Coast Regional District  Board, Box 800, Sechelt.  Concerned Redrooffs Residents  Not impressed  Editor:  Pick on the little guy.  I read law enforcement is  focusing on busting a few family men in Roberts Creek for  growing marijuana. Am 1 supposed to cheer?  And such exaggerated reports  on the value of their crops.  These men are not rich - they  are just supporting their  families. They are not a part of  a huge powerful drug cartel  seeking to become wealthy by  ruining peoples' lives.  These men are independent  farmers growing a substance  easily more benign than cigaret  tes. True, this practice is illegal.  But with our jails already overcrowded, maybe the legality of  marijuana should be reconsidered.  My tax money would like to  see law enforcement concentrate on violent crimes, drug imports, and corporate pollution  before local marijuana growers.  Have you smelt the air in  Gibsons lately? If that isn't illegal, it should be. You can't  just say 'no' to air pollution.  Let's get our priorities  straight.  Janice Leighton  Roberts Creek, BC  Acknowledgement  Editor:  Acknowledgement was received from the Director of  Montreal's Ecole Polytechnique  in response to the message of  sympathy and the card signed  by over 80 Sunshine Coast  residents at the Candlelight  Vigil held December II at  Rockwood Centre.  "In the aftermath of the  December 6 tragedy at Ecole  Polytechnique, your kind words  of sympathy have been a source  of consolation. Indeed the staff  and students were deeply touched.  "On their behalf, please accept our most heartfelt expression of gratitude. May peace,  love and serenity be with us all  during 1990."

"The words in the by-law  that are making some people  nervous", planner Rob Sabine  told the Coast News, "are 'temporary commercial and industrial'. Those are the words  that are used in the Municipal  Act, and they give council the  broadest discretion."  "The Act states that 'commercial' includes temporary  tourist accommodation and  what council will want to review  will be whether they will let that  go through unchanged or  change some of the wording.  Council still has the final  authority as to what they approve.  "All they've done is designate  areas where they can consider  applications, and they can approve, disapprove or modify  any application. The issues of  uses of the designated areas will  not be addressed till the permit  stage. Before any of this can  happen, council has to decide  whether they are prepared to  consider temporary industrial  and commercial use in any part  of the municipality.

Send your entries to reach the  Coasl News. Box 460, Gibsons by Saturday of Ihis week. Lasl  week's winner was Yvonne Morgan of Joe Road who correctly  identified Roberts Creek Wharf.  by Chris Ferguson  The primary focus of the All  Candidates Meeting held last  Wednesday evening in Gibsons,  was to determine who is the  more appropriate candidate to  lead the New Democratic Party  to victory in the next provincial  election.  Both candidates, Brenda  DeGraag, and Howard White  were given the opportunity to  speak to supporters and to  answer questions.  Howard White's decision to  run for the MLA was triggered  by the closure of Howe Sound,  due to industrial pollution. He  feels that there has been misuse  and mismanagement of  resources by the present government and that the Sunshine  Coast has suffered neglect. He  feels that the party needs ag-  gresivc and articulate representation from the MLA and that  based on his experience and  qualifications, he is the  representative to make the difference.  White is a longtime local resi  dent and feels he knows the  issues pertaining to the Coast.  He has held a variety of jobs,  from construction worker to  publisher and notes his strength  in communication.  Brenda DeGraag has been  Ray Skelly's assistant for the  past 11 years, and has worked  for many years within the New  Democratic Party. DeGraag  feels that the present government is "mean" in their undermining of social programs, and  immoral in the way that they  have allowed pollution. She  feels that she has the knowledge  and experience of how the party  works, and that she will be  strong and effective as the NDP  members' choice to beat Harold  Long.  Candidates and constituents  agreed that the environment  was the most important campaign issue in this election.  Howard White quotes this as  "the era of cleanup". He feels  that government regulations are  required regarding toxic dumping and resource use. He sees an  environmental industry as the  new business that will generate  future employment.  Brenda DeGraag states that  we need a New Democratic  government with courage to put  in a strong legislation and the  guts to enforce it. She feels that  a waste management plan, involving recycling and composting is needed, and that the  use of recycled paper and the  use of unbleached paper products be encouraged.  Both candidates agree that we  all have to change our habits  and the way that we think and  work hard together towards a  clean environment.  Other relevant issues raised at  the meeting, included, the housing crisis, women's issues, the  need for improved educational  facilities, the need for re-  evaluation of the health care  system, the need to address  Native land claims, and the  need for better ferry service.  After the meeting, one supporter stated that both candidates put forward their positions clearly, fielded the questions well, and were both "good  people".  Another expressed the  distinction that Brenda was  more formal, knowledgeable of  fact and figure and had more  experience, and that Howard  was less formal, perceived tp be  more in touch with the common  person, and possessed a better  understanding of the Coast and  its issues. Arid one supporter  commented on the possibility  that the choice simply boiled  down to "a flip of the coin".  The Nominating Convention  will be held on March 24 in  Powell River.  In Area A  SCRD supports by-law work  *  by Caryl Worden  The Area A Planning Committee (APC) should continue  its work on an overall development by-law as scheduled, the  Sunshine Coast Regional  District (SCRD) decided at its  board meeting February 22.  The board voted in favour of  a recommendation that the  Pender Harbour APC "seek reaffirmation of community support through the various community groups in Area A and  that the current planning  schedule be maintained."  The committee's work has  come under fire recently from  members of the executive of the  Pender Harbour and District  Ratepayers Association  (PHDRPA).  -Area  A   Director  Gordon  Wilson felt that despite the opposition, the APC should "continue and do not give up the  fight. We have to continue to  wrestle with what is a very difficult and sometimes a painful  process. And make it work to  the satisfaction of all the people  in the area."  Area E Director Jim Gurney  stressed that letters from individuals in the area would help  prove that the community is  behind the process.  "Remember this is a long  way from home, on this by-law  yet," Gurney said. "It has to go  to Victoria for approval and I  can tell you that if there's any  hint that the community is not  behind the by-law, it'll gather a  lot of dust in Victoria."  Tom Barker, chairman of the  APC   sub-committee   pointed  We Still Hake  House  ALLIED  The Carelul Movers  in a day when personal service seems Ilka a chapter from history,  vou'll be pleased with Allled's genuine concern.

B.C. Ministry of Regionsl Development  out that the APC represents a  wide cross-section of the Pender  Harbour community and that  letters of support are on file.  APC member Cy O'Leary  likened the recent controversy  to "one person standing up in a  crowded theater and shouting  'fire'. There's a lot of commotion, but it's still just one person. We do believe we have the  community behind us."  Prior to the Thursday night  meeting, Wilson commented  that he didn't want the APC to  be a "political football".  "The whole issue of the bylaw should have nothing to do  with partisan provincial  politics,"  Wilson said.  "Ob  viously it has been allowed to  degenerate into that because of  Howard (White), and 1 don't  know if it's the fact he's a  rookie, or a neophyte in the  system and doesn't realize what  he's doing."  White is vice-president of  PHDRA.  Wilson said that community  confidence will have to be  restored to ensure that planning  for the area can continue.  "1 don't know what his  (White's) motivations are,  because all he's accomplished is  to create a tremendous amount  of apprehension in the area and  has discredited some very fine  community people."

Every Customer's A WINNER at  "ALTERNATIVE  and here are the winners from our   4th Anniversary Draw  GRAND PRIZE WINNER  of Ray Troll Poster is BARB LEVINE  by Caryl Worden  How many beds or guests  does it take to make a Bed and  Breakfast operation?  This was the question plaguing SCRD directors at Thursday's meeting as they discussed  recommendations for the new  Bed and Breakfast by-law.  Area D Director Brett  McGillivray suggested that the  number be limited to two  bedrooms. "This would get us  out of the problem of having  tourist commercial operations  in rural residential areas."  However, Area A Director  Gordon Wilson pointed out that  the size of a single bedroom  could accommodate 20 beds. "I  think we should regulate it based on the number of paying  guests," Wilson said.  Area F Director Jeremy Frith  felt that bathroom status would  solve the problem if operators  were limited to having no more  than three bedrooms per one  bathroom.  While McGillivray complied  that three bedrooms would be  an allowable number, Area E  Director Jim Gurney disagreed  saying: "I feel that's getting  beyond the scale of residential  occupancy."  The board finally voted in  favour of Director McGill-  ivray's original motion that a  bed and breakfast operation be  limited to two bedrooms.
