 Victoria. �����*-������  COAST^NEWS  50 cents per copy on newsstands  imnmiiMiiD  March 22,1993 Volume 47 Issue 12  Wilson's ability,  credibility  debated on Coast  by Jane Seyd  Despite the recent slings and  arrows, local Sunshine Coast  Liberals say they're still behind  their MLA and leader Gordon  Wilson.  "I believe they are solidly  behind him," says Barbara Ball,  the Liberal riding association  president.  So far, Wilson hasn't said  whether he will run  again for leadership  of the provincial Liberals next September.  Commenting on Friday, he said, "I'm  starting to lean.  There's an awful lot __^_____  of support out there."  Norman Ruff, political science professor at the University  of Victoria, says realislicially,  "It's very hard to see lhat he  could ever recover."  Meanwhile, opinion is still  divided over how recent events  have affected Wilson's ability  to represent his riding. "I have  absolutely no concerns," says  Ball, who is organizing constituency meetings where Wilson will be speaking March 28.  But others ;ue more cautious  in Iheir assessments. "Obviously everything that's been going  on in the last eight weeks has  been distracting to him," says  Ruff.  Mrytle Winchester, who,  publishes a newsletter in Pender  Harbour and supported Wilson's election campaign comments, "I don't know if his ability to represent the Coast has  7 have  absolutely no  concerns'  - Barbara Hall  Inside  community page 6  feature      page 11  leisure       page 13  nutter       page 5  musings     page 4  sports      page 14  rmbfween page 17  changed. He doesn't seem to be  spending much time here. I  haven't heard of him doing anything as MLA, other than he's  given people a lot to talk  about."  As chair of the local regional  board, Peggy Connor says as far  as she's concerned, Wilson -  who met with her last week - is  slill pursuing local issues, "I  think he can do the  job," she says. "He's  doing it far better  than any of them I  can think of."  While some people feel let down by  Wilson, Connor says  "I think they're mixing up his private life with his  political life.  "I don't think il's affected  his ability. It may have affected  his willingness a little... It's  pretty hard to live with."  Bul that opinion isn't shared  by another local politician who  supported Wilson during the  election. "I think he was initially quite effective," says Gibsons  mayor Eric Small. "...I'm not  sure I can say that now."  In the early days of his term,  Wilson had a local impact on  issues such as getting attention  to the Gibsons highway bypass,  provincial medical issues and  the sinking of the Chaudiere,  says SimalL But with recent  events, "I think he's lost his  credibility," says Small. "How  much support does he have  when he stands up and says  something?"  While some people, local  Liberals among them, feel  media portayal of Wilson's private problems has been entirely  unfair, others aren't so sure.  "Il's a reflection of character," says Small. "If an individual has difficulty realizing what  is liable to affect their credibility in their personal life then I  would have to have Ihe same  concerns on the political side."  "It's a situation of his own  making," says Ruff. "If he had  been more forthright back in  January, he may well have  escaped this." Locally, Small  says many people are disappointed in Wilson. "Count me  among them."  turn to page 22  Carla Rudland, Ann Konopascek and Sara Norris liven up Rockwood Centre's Children's Fair Thursday.  Joel Johnstone photo  Residents feel burned by new fire regulations  by Charles Harl  After months of review, Gibsons is taking  steps to tighten up the town's burning regulations, but it was immediately apparent  when the new bylaw was unveiled last week  that for some residents the changes proposed  do not go far enough.  David Morrow told council after the  meeting thai land clearing fires from a new  subdivision in his Oceanmount neighbourhood made living conditions unbearable for  residents. "It's basically illegal to do what  they're doing, but there's nobody to enforce  it," said Morrow, referring lo new provincial  regulations on slash fires. "There has to be  something done. 1 was buried in smoke for  nearly a week."  Council moves to  tighten bylaw  Morrow said the whole neighbourhood  was up in arms over the pollution, health  threat, and noise from heavy machinery,  which he said kept up into the early hours of  the morning. "I'm asking for you guys to  come up with some solutions," he told council. "What I saw was the developer go in and  basically do what he pleased. He basically  had total land control."  Mayor Eric Small said the whole Coast is  struggling with the problem. But until there  is an alternative, such as a commercial  stump dump or chipper, he said local government has been reluctant to put on outright  ban on slash and land-clearing fires. When a  commercial service does become available,  "I'm sure you'll find all of us moving very  quickly to ban these fires," Small said.  The town's new bylaw makes no mention  of land-clearing fires, however, although the  mayor did urge councillors to consider  whether they wanted to draft appropriate  regulations. The bylaw, which was given  first reading, will ban burning of construction waste, which is accepted at landfills,  and bring other regulations into line with  Forest Service rules.  turn to page 2  Searching out solitude in Desolation Sound  by Jane Seyd  Rounding Sarah Point at the  entrance to Desolation Sound,  the dark peak of East Redonda  Island rises steeply from the  water, the long arms of the  sound reaching back towards the  mountains which stop up the  distance all around.  Sheltered from the outflow  winds and the tidal currents of  the straits, Desolation lies  smooth and still under the morning sun.  In front of the BC Parks boat  Desoree, Mink Island floats its  green fur of trees in the middle  of the channel.  For many people over the  years, Desolation Sound has  been an idea as much as a place,  a myth of wilderness where  silence echoes out of the forest,  remote and melancholy.  Writing in the summer of  1792 aboard the Discovery,  Captain George Vancouver expressed his hopelessness at finding each inlet blocked by mountains, describing the disorienting  geography of Desolation as "a  detached and broken country,  whose general appearance was  very inhospitable."  Now the largest marine park  inBC, Desolation Sound offers  6,330 acres of foreshore and  water, and 14,000 acres of  upland. Unusually warm water,  caused by an absence of significant tidal flushing, minimal wind  and many sheltered boat anchorages, have made the sound a  popular destination.  Ironically, those who seek  Desolation's sense of solitude at  the height of summer will likely  find up to 300 boats in search of  similar qualities.  The appeal of the area's  "untouched wilderness" has also  not been lost on more commercial interests, which have set a  Toyota car down on one of the  islands and recently filmed a  backdrop for Air Canada vacations, complete with paper maple  leaves spread over the  foreground.  But for those who can get to  Desolation in the spring or fall  off-season, the sound still offers  a place of quiet water, tree-lined  shores and contemplation.  In Malaspina and Lancelot  inlets the park cuts down the  middle of the waterways, dotted  on both sides by the blue floats  of oyster leases.  Although the tide can sometimes run through at as much as  two knots through Malaspina,  the actual exchange of waters in  Desolation's inlets is small,  Textures and reflections in Desolation Sound.  making them a prime area for  oyster fanners, who culture the  shellfish both on lines and in  trays.  Oyster growing in the Desolation Sound area - including  some leases within the park - is a  several-million-dollar annual  Jane Seyd photo  industry, with most oyster growers importing their seed from  Japan and California.  turn to page 2  Students  hear  youth  council  proposal  The mayor of Sechelt was  asked by students to speak at  Chatelech Secondary School  recently to let students know the  municipality has set aside  $1,000 toward the formation of  a Sechelt youth council.  Two Chatelech students  asked Mayor Nancy MacLarty  to attend a class session and  explain a youth council proposal she made in December of  1992.  Sechelt council's youth liaison, councillor Michael Shanks,  was to have spread word of the  proposal, bul not many students  gained any knowledge of it  "We never heard anything  about it, or that there was  $l,000-available," said Chatelech grade 11 student Tyler  Gray. "That's why we asked the  mayor to come and talk to our  class."  turn to page 2 Coast News, March 22, 1993  news  glbaons notes  Gibsons council, asked lo support commercial fishermen in  opposing the aboriginal fisheries strategy, took a cautious approach  last week when the item came up for discussion.  Rather than wade into public debate on a sensitive political issue,  council apparently agreed in advance how to respond. The result  was a motion calling for more negotiations to take place before any  moves are made to implement the strategy, with a vague policy statement reflecting the town's concern to see the interests of the locid  commercial fishing fleet protected.  The SCRD, meanwhile, has gone on record as supporting Ihe  Fishermen's Survival Coalition in ils bid lo hall the aboriginal fisheries strategy.  More grants  The town announced additional grants to non-profit organizations  which have satisfied 1993 requirements;  ��� The Wesl Howe Sound Recreation facilities commission  received a grant of $4,000, roughly one-third of its budget;  ��� Gibsons Teen Outreach was awarded a grant of $2,000 of Ihe  $10,000 requested. "We wanted to strongly support them, bul  couldn't support their entire budget - which is what it would've  amounted to," said Mayor Eric Small;  ��� The Gibsons and District Public Library received a grant of  $35,000, $20,000 of which takes the form of free rent and utilities for  its premises, the remaining $15,000 being a cash grant. Thai is an  increase from $12,500 in recent years to take into account inflation.  The total amounts to a lax of aboul $11 per head for town library services, equivalent lo whal their rural counterparts in electoral areas D,  E are contributing, said Small.

Along with the oysters, the  farm produces littleneck and  manilla clams dug from nearby  beaches.  "During the winter months  you dig at night," says Petrou,  because that's the only time the  tide goes out far enough, looking for the shape of the shells  and the size of their hinges by  headlamp: "It takes a little  while."  At the end of Theodosia,  beyond the boundaries of Ihe  park, tidal flats next to the Toba  forest district have historically  been used as booming grounds  for logging operations.  During the railroad logging  era, Theodosia was known  locally as Baloney Bay, says ex-  logger Frank White, after the  quality of food that could be  expected in camp by up to 300  men employed there.  "In the depression the guys  went anywhere they could get  work and they worked the hell  out of them," says White.  In the early part of the century, a homestead at the head of  the inlet with a herd of beef and  dairy cattle also supplied local  logging operations.  A traditional village site of  Tranquil waters surround an inlet  the Sliammon people al the head  of Theodosia was abandoned in  the 1920s.  Moving out of Malaspina  Inlet and around Clifford Peninsula lo Galley Bay, a shake  cabin below an old orchard  indicates spot once known  throughout the Coast as a commune which ran from 1969 to  1974 on the site of an old homestead.  Back then, "one or Iwo boals  a day would come into this bay  and drop people off," says Rick  Terrell, the parks caretaker and  current occupant of the land,  who first came lo Desolation as  an oyster farmer. "It was a  whole bunch of people trying to  live off the land with no equipment and no money."  When it came to a vote  between doing something and  not doing something, "the vote  Island In Desolation Sound.  would be lo noi do something,"  says Terrell - part of the reason  the commune eventually folded.  A sheltered habitat for many  birds in the winter, Desolation is  home lo bald eagles, scoters,  ravens and marbled murrelets  among other species. East  Redonda Island is also an ecological reserve.  A rock near lo Otter Island,  by the place marked on nautical  charts as Sky Pilot Rock is also  home to a seal nursery, where  the animals watch passing boats  with doleful eyes before slipping into Ihe water.  At Tenedos Bay, described  by the Discovery's botanist  Archibald Menzies as "the deep  bay" because of the steep  enclosing shoreline, purple  starfish cling to the rock above  the tideline, while gulls float  nonchalantly nearby. At the  Jane Seyd photo  entrance to Ihe harbour, a profile  of a face can be seen in the rock  at the point known as Bold  Head, while a trail at the head of  the bay leads back to Unwin  Lake.  Farther up, a series of bays  where tugboats once tied up in  Prideaux Haven offers a  favourite anchorage for boaters.  At one lime, homesteads  existed at the heads of both  Laura and Melanie coves. Long  abandoned, traces of some old  cabins and orchards can still be  found overgrown behind the  bush throughout Desolation. At  Laura Cove, cormorants perch  on a rock at the entrance lo the  bay like charmed black snakes.  On a still afternoon here the  waler reflects everything: the  mountains, the smooth limbs of  the arbutus, the exact pattern of  the shoreline.  Petition opposes Cowrie plans  Sechell council experience the first strong opposition to proposed upcoming changes in the district's official community plan last Wednesday's  when resident Pal Chamberlin presented council  with a petition asking that the residential portion of  Cowrie Street between Trail and      Ocean Avenues not be rezoned  from residential to commeicial.  Chamberlin, who lives in the  neighborhood bordered by Cowrie,  Dolphin, Ocean and Trail avenues,  'Please respect our  sense of place and  the right to protect  saidr|he quality of life for residents. QUr families' safety'  would be "greatly affected" while1  i  '"���  the municipality would at the same time be creating a safety hazard for children attending school at  both the elementary and secondary school.  She pointed out that Cowrie was already a busy  street with cars speeding in and out of the municipality along it. "Please respect our sense of place  and the right to protect our families' safety," reads  part of the petition.  In addition to safety concerns, Chamberlin said  that creating a commercial zone of lhat portion of  Cowrie would create traffic congestion and confusion as the "small" lane behind the existing Cowrie  residences would serve as the only access for commercial enterprises and would easily become     blocked with people trying to park,  trucks making deliveries and people trying to leave. "There's only  room enough for one-way traffic  without removing Ihe powerlines,"  Chamberlin said.  Chamberlin said her petition  consisted of the names of people  living within the neghbourhood or within two  blocks of it and "only one person refused to sign."  She said another won't sign for fear of jeopardizing their tenancy and "two more were so beaten  down by the issue that they want nothing more to  do with it."  Council has a policy of not commenting on presentations Ihe night they are given, so refrained  from comment.  Funds offered to establish youth council  from page 1  MacLarty's youth council  proposal was a response to a  request by other Chatelech students that Sechelt council buy  the former seniors hall and turn  it into a youth centre. MacLarty  said essentially that Sechelt's  youths would have to prove they  were responsible and interested  in operating such a facility  before they could have one and  should therefore be required to  form a recognised, functioning  council.

Among olher things,  MacLarty's proposal calls for  the youth council to be made up  of all interested teenagers within  the municipality, including  those out of school for whatever  reason.  "I think this should involve  more than just the Chatelech  Student Council," MacLarty has  said. "There are a lot more  young people in Sechelt than  just the high school students."  The proposal also called on  the youths to provide their own  mission statement, policies and  constitution, and that they form  their own elections to choose  those who would serve on the  council.  Once a youth council is  formed and running smoothly,  according to MacLarty, council,  in conjunction with other groups  like Ihe school board and chamber of commerce, could look  into helping the youth acquire  recreational facilities which they  could "call their own."  She said a part-lime co-ordinator could be hired to help run  Ihe facility but said most of the  work and planning and the management of any funds should be  left up to Ihe youths.  Gray said he and other students would undertake to spread  the word.  "ll sounds like a good idea,"  Gray said, bul we've got to tell  other students aboul it."  Burn  permit  rules  adjusted  from page I  Consequently, permits will  be required between April IS  and Oct. IS (rather than April  I and Nov. 1), open fires will  be banned during July and  August, and the fire chief will  be given authority to ban fires  at other times for safety reasons. In addition, the fire  departmenl will be able to bill  individuals for costs arising  from an unpermitted fire  burning out of control.  The new regulations have  already been reviewed and  approved by Ihe West Howe  Sound Fire Protection Committee.  At the same meeting, the  issue was also taken up by  Dr. Paul Martiquet, the  Coast's chief medical health  officer. In a letter to council,  Martiquet notes that there is  convincing scientific documentation that wood smoke  poses serious health risks.  "The Coast Garibaldi  Health Unit recommends that  councils and regional districts  take actions to keep wood  burning to a minimum and  limit the burning of slash  where possible. Alternative  methods of slash disposal  must be encouraged."  Free Help with Your Tax Return  Revenue Canada is opening free tax clinics in your  area to help you at income tax time.

Joel Johnstone photo  Herbal cancer remedy touted, disputed  by Darah Hansen  Elaine Alexander says she  doesn't have to make claims  about Essiac, the herbal remedy  long been heralded as a natural  cure for cancer.  She says the proof of its  effectiveness, and that of her  own like-product, Floressence,  is in its history and in the claims  of its many users - information  she will impart to Sunshine  Coast residents next Saturday  when she will speak on the topic  at Greenecourt.  But in the realms of the medical world - both traditional and  alternative - Essiac's reputation  is complex and muddled. About  as many opinions exist on Essiac's results as there are medical  practitioners.  Much of the problem is that  little is known for certain about  the natural remedy. It is  believed to have originated with  Natives living in Northern  Ontario who, before the turn of  the century, passed the recipe  for Essiac into the hands of a  non-native woman after she  11 dWlftRSfj brsfiast cancer!"'' '  ,,The wo'rjijui took the herbal  concoction in the form of a lea  and her cancer is then said to  have disappeared. The remedy  became public knowledge some  30 years later when an Ontario  nurse, Rene Caisse, was made  party to the secret formula by its  original patient.  Over the next three decades,  Caisse claimed to have healed  thousands of cancer victims  with her version of the formula  which she called Essiac (Caisse  spelled backwards).  Caisse died in 1978 but not  before having signed over Ihe  rights to Essiac to two parties:  the Resperin Corporation of  Ontario and to her long-time  friend, Massachusetts doctor  Charles Brusch.  Resperin, Brusch and later  the American firm, Mankind  Research Foundation Inc.,  which bought the formula from  Resperin, are the only parties to  have Caisse's formula.  According to Elaine Alexander, Caisse wouldn't allow her  product to be formally tested  fearing it would get lost in the  bureaucratic shuffle or worse,  that clinical tests would not be  performed correctly thus discrediting forever the remedy she  believed.  Records at the BC Cancer  Research Agency in Vancouver  show that Resperin Corp.,  applied in 1978 to the government to have Essiac recognized  as a legitimate medical drug, but  the submission was later refused  after the two Ontario hospitals  chosen for the investigation  declined to use Essiac as 'the  sole treatment on their cancer  patients.  The records further show that  in 1982 Essiac was made available to 112 family practitioners  to use in supervised treatment of  terminal patients. Of the original  number, 74 later submitted case  reports on 87 patients which  showed Essiac to have a very  low success rate.  The conclusion was drawn  from Health and Welfare Cana  da at that time that clinical evidence did not exist to support  Essiac as an effective treatment  for cancer.  It did acknowledge that it  was not harmful to a person's  health provided the herbs were  not substituted for a proven  form of cancer therapy, and  therefore allowed the release of  Essiac on compassionate  grounds.  Essiac, and versions thereof,  have since been permitted to be  sold in health food stores across  Canada with the idea they create  at least a placebo effect - a positive psychological effect which  Cain aid in the comfort and overall health of a patient.  But Dr Jim Chan, a Vancouver naturopath who has worked  with Essiac for the past three  years, argues that it's too early  to dismiss the remedy completely. "I've got plenty of statistics  to show that it has worked in  certain cases," said Chan,  adding the numbers are not high  enough to say this is a sure cure  ��� for cancer.  , . ...     ������ i  But Chan admits Ihere is still.  'tbb IMIcH Unknown about the  remedy to make any real elaimfc  about it.  "I can have two people with  exactly the same kind of cancer.  I could treat them with Essiac  and one would die and one  would live."  Chan said he does not advise  Essiac's use in isolation from  clinically tested methods such as  chemotherapy or radiation. He  sees it as an alternative to those  who are trying everything and  It's finally here!

The Coast is not alone among growing regions that are  confronting a rising chorus of resident complaints about  inadequate regulations governing all types of outdoor  burning.  The problem has become so acute, and the literature  about the health risks so conclusive, that the provincial  government felt compelled to take the matter in hand last  year, drafting new burning laws. Unfortunately, without  anybody to enforce them, the new regulations are more  token gesture than bona fide protection against an all-pervasive pall of smoke and ash.  Gibsons council has taken a step in the right direction  by banning burning of construction waste. But it should  go further while the issue is on the table: there is clearly a  need for some type of control on slash burning if an outright ban is not acceptable at this time. Without pressure  from local government, it could be a long time before a  commercial enterprise considers it worthwhile to operate  a chipping or stump dump service. The elusive alternative leaves residents suffering unacceptable pollution.  The possibility of incorporating a sizeable stump  dump/burning area at the Sechelt landfill has not been  explored. And even if that is not a suitable option, there  are ways to limit the extent of on-site burning and consequent noxious smoke that residents justifiably find so  objectionable.  Some municipalities have sought to control the size of  piles, the days and times when burning may take place  and the minimum distance from neighbouring property  lines in an effort to combat the neighbourhood smoke  problem. There are other solutions, in the short term, with  which to establish the principle that indiscriminate commercial burning is unacceptable and that tougher regulations are in the pike to guarantee health and security of  those already living in the community.  Cases have arisen elsewhere in which seniors suffering  from asthma or other chest ailments have been driven  from their homes by smoke pollution. In Oceanmount  recently, llie level of smoke was so dense, even with windows and doors closed, that some residents were left  spluttering in tears while their smoke alarms went off.  A minimum set of standards needs to be enacted and  eitfoteid to prevent such extreme nuisance. It is time  local government acted decisively to clear the air. >  Hockey credits  The Sunshine Coast Minor Hockey Association  deserves a bouquet from the community for the exemplary way it organized and ran last week's provincial AA  midget championships.  No mean feat for a small organization run by volunteers whose first interest is in fostering local quality and  ability in the national sport. The level of sportsmanship  displayed at the tournament was a credit to the Coast  organization and those behind the 10 other participating  teams, which played hard, competitive hockey.  The tight tournament game schedule proceeded like  clockwork. The only complaint from visitors and home  fans seemed to be grumbling about referees... And what  else is new when there's tough competition with a  provincial championship at stake?  Trade unionism  shows true colours  For the past seven weeks  IWA workers of Bayside  Sawmills have been locked out  by their employer.  On March 16, a vole was  taken when the 'best and final'  offer was rejected by the union  membership and a counter proposal sent to the company,  whereby all workers above the  bottom three hourly rates voluntarily gave up their rate increase  in the thin) year of the contract  to their less fortunate co-workers, so that the lower-paid workers will receive a living wage.  In other words the substantial  raise given to the bottom three  categories was funded by the  higher paid workers themselves.  It is this type of kindness and  undeniuuiding>j(hat is die foundation on which trade unionism  wis built. fZT.  The vote was carried by (SO  per cenl. As a result many are  returning to work reluctantly, to  a labour climate, that will be  cool at best.  Notwithstanding, the IWA is  asking its members to put the  past behind them and actively  work lo promote safety, productivity and unity on the job.  IWA-Canada, Local 1-71,  would like lo publicly lhank  George Thomas who as camp  chairman and member of the  negotiating committee, showed  leadership, patience and a generous spirit in donating countless hours of his time for others;  Bill Johnstone and Barbara Vincent for their efforts on the  negotiating committee and as  picket captains; the remaining  dependable picket captains for  hard work and bringing order  out of chaos; the pickets for  faithfully manning the line for  24 hours a day and the special  project workers who helped  arrange firewood and the other  necessities for workers doing  picket duty.  MURRAY CANTELON  Warden, IWA, Local 1-71  Criminal what  press did to Wilson  I have had it up to the eyeballs with the media's witch  hunt after Gordon Wilson. The  sarcastic column in the editorials of The Leader, The Sunshine  Press and John Pifer (Sunshine  Press) did nothing to win credibility of the press.  Last week on the news they  ..tfimfte a lelletfw��^|***,fjo*n  ���'^."Wilson and pwts-of it published in The Province. That's a  >*TilNiW offence and I am disgusted that people reporting the  news can wallow around in the  gutter, producing such slime and  garbage.  This is not news - it's some  one's personal and private life.  Would the wolf pack news  media be so smug and judgmental if we, the viewers and readers, were reporting on their not-  so-perfect little secrets?  Two thousand years ago a  lynching mob was told "He who  is without sin (faults) among  you - cast the first stone."  Gordon Wilson is going  through the most stressful event  in human life that we have to  experience, the grief and pain of  separation and divorce.  There is only one event thai  is worse and that is the death of  a spouse. Divorce is like a dealh  - the grieving lasts much longer  than bereavement in some cases.  Mr. Wilson and his wife had  a 25-year marriage. I'm sure  they tried to stay together. It  takes an enormous amount of  guts and courage to end a mar-  ���jriage,    ������   ��� ���   " '������;;   I Pe6plb,ar'e'sayihg'''Mr. Willi sort was unwind to his wife.' It  ��� doesn't look that way. He was  honest, too many men (and  women) cheat on their spouses  and never say anything.

V0N3A0  When people go through  crises in their private lives, it  takes superhuman effort to put  everything objectively in the  order they would like it to be.  We are all human, far from perfect - shouldn't wc be compassionate?  Three years ago I watched  the TV with disgust as Tony  Parsons stripped Mr. Vander  Zalm of everything. He was  taken apart piece by piece. I  hated it. Now they are trying it  with Mr. Wilson.  Two years ago I had to write  to Ottawa and Victoria about the  destitute women in this country,  older ones and young single  mothers. 1 sent them facts and  figures. I had to send Mr. Skelly  a second letter as he took his  time to answer.  Eventually he passed Ihe  buck to Mr. Mazankowski, who  scnt.nie a lip servicp,govern.-,,.  nicnt-pl.ititudps letter saying,  how concerned the Canadian  government was for its single  mothers and people living on  limited incomes.  Mr. Wilson was Ihe only one  who listened. He took time out  in a busy day to give me an  appointment to see him in his  Sechelt office.  He listened with understanding and made a few recommendations that I should look into. I  will never forget this. Mr. Wilson will always get my vote. I  think he is a great man.  So ladies and gentlemen of  Ihe press, please give us a break.  You do an excellent job otherwise. But after all this dirt and  digging - put a lid on it.  E. MARGARET NIELSEN  Sechelt  Stone Age tips on nutrition and the care of children  m  ;j  II  The headline on the front page read: 'Scientists  look to Stone Age for tips on child care and nutrition'.  That, if you will pardon a pun, takes one a bit  aback, does it not?  We are not just looking at our grandparents  here, folks; this is not just a nostalgic glance back  at a mistily remembered and romanticised era. No  siree, we are going all the way back to pre-agricul-  tural man for tips on how to feed ourselves and  how to care for our young.  These areas of human activity in which we are  to be instructed are not negligible. If there are more  central issues in the life of a species than feeding  itself and caring for its young I'd like to know  what they are.  No, if these scientists are right, we seem to  have taken a wrong turn somewhere a long way  back.  Mind you, it seems the advice we seek from  Stone Age models is scarcely radical. How could it  be, you might well ask.  Our bodies are attuned more happily to grains  and vegetables than they are to red meat, our  researchers tell us. I suspect that there are generations of our kind between here and the cave nun  who knew that well.  From the cave man we can leam that parents  should sleep with their children rather than relegat-  musings  John burnside  ing them at an early age into little cages called  cribs.  Given the evidences of alienation in abundance  all around us, we ought to leam something from  somebody soon about how to produce human  beings who are not time bombs of rage, frustration,  fear and loneliness.  I love this story, though. I love it because it  gives us a marvellous kick in the complacency. We  are so imbued with pride in the marvellous toys we  have had brought into our lives, so smugly sure  that we are the happiest and brightest people who  ever lived.  It is good for us, I submit, to leam tliat there are  some crucially important aspects of life where we  have gone far astray and to leam, too, that we have  much to leam from people without our toys and  who must therefore, given the materialistic yard  stick by which we measure everything and each  other, have been less than clever.  It would be laughably inaccurate to suggest that  good nutrition and childcare have been important  areas of concern in my personal life. But even into  my less-than-enlightened ken has swum some  awareness which prepares me for the scientists'  findings.  During the Second World War in Great Britain,  the populace, of which I was a very small part, was  denied much in the way of red meat and forced  onto a diet of grain and vegetables.  After the war we had the finest crop of middle-  and long-distance runners that Britain has ever produced, young men and women who grew up on the  restricted diet.  Also from my own childhood I remember that  we lived in close proximity to many aunts and  uncles.  We had definitely not escaped the Industrial  Revolution of the 19th century, were in fact caught  deeply in its coils, but the extended family was still  a large part of our lives.  As a child, I knew full well what a haven it was  to have an aunt or two a few doors away or a  grandmother for those days when one's mother  grew irritable and dangerous from work and poverty and the unrelenting demands of her responsibilities.  I knew the joys of having a plenitude of uncles  willing to find the time for a small boy who wanted  to walk the hills and leam about the ways of rabbits and lapwings or go fishing in the streams for  trout.  For several generations now we have been a  mobile people leaving our homes and our families  and our friends to find work in one of the giant  industrial organizations which have shaped our  lives.  Our nuclear families see hard-pressed men and  women hying to cope with children, trying to fill  all the roles that many filled in generations heretofore.  Some couples succeed admirably still, but many  more fail and it is the young who suffer the sting of  such failures.  If you are unpersuaded that life of the hunter  and food gatherers of Ihe Stone Age has anything  to offer, consider this. One study I read of lately  estimated that the hunter and food gatherer spent  approximately 26 hours a week in sustaining the  family.  The rest was with the family and in recreation.  Compare that with your work week - that is if you  are presently employed.  Progress, there can be no doubt, is a winding  road with hairpins to be negotiated leading back to  where we have been.  1  iOAST^NEWS  b-mcHpHoii Helm toe  ������ CafkaMf MMS WPt WMMHMfT  Male: I year ��� J35 ��� $2.45 CST - S37.45  6 months ��� S20*S1.40CST-J21.40  rtmalam 1 yew ��� $40 (No CST)  Ref.

In fact, if you were  to cast about for the most  unpopular subject of all it might  well be addiction. Death of  course, but death is inevitable  and you can't really just call it  unpopular.  Poverty perhaps. Poverty is  an unpopular subject alright, but  poverty is often presented as  something people, through no  fault of their own, begin with  and through a lifetime's heroics  don't climb out of. Hardly an  unpopular theme.  Addiction, it seems to me,  still holds the edge as the  world's most unpopular subject,  hut why at this time of year,  with the forsythia blooming and  buds at the end of every twig,  should wc be scratching about  for things depressing?  Maybe il's the best time to  face up, or maybe just notice  these things, supposing they are  there, and there is no question  they arc there.  All recent presidents of the  US have put various problems  of addiction to the forefront of  their agendas. Billions of dollars, increasingly scarce, have  been put into various diverse  programs designed to somehow  put a stop to addictions.  Most of us, in the US and  here, observers of the growing  scene or participants it may be,  see most of these programs as  being simply desperation  moves. Lots of variously trained  people are being hired etc., but  little indeed is getting done that  will make such a dint in the  problem.  The problem, as most  observers seem to think, continues to grow and increasingly  among the young, and sometimes among the very young.  In Canada we have at least  two of the continent's top  research and treatment situations: the Addiction Research  Foundation (known as ARF)  and the Donwood Clinic, both in  Toronto.  Their several approaches  have changed over the years and  arc changing still I expect at this  time.  Dr. Bell, who started Don-  woods, did it at the end of WWI  and did it to help people coming  out of that war with their thinking and their beliefs all scrambled. It was only later that he  moved into addiction, recognizing strong links between.  ARF, which lives in a large  building on Bloor Street, is  heavily endowed with psychologists, most that I saw young,  many black-bearded and all  pretty well what you might say  'trendy'. There was a brisk air  letters  Fishy tales  about town  I read wilh interest the vast  sums of money that the Sunshine Coast fishermen bring  home each and every year. Is  Ihis the same group of fishermen that last year was having  difficulty qualifying for unemployment insurance or was that  some other group?  Also, why is it that the Town  of Gibsons on one hand supports the fishermen and on the  other hand does not want Hill's  Machine Shop to expand their  servfces't<rfixtheirboats?  I<1 '"-"  It appears to the casual  observer that most of the money  the fishermen make goes to  town. They sell their fish in  town, they buy, equip and repair  their own bouts in town, and  they live off UIC for all but 14  weeks of the year.

THE  DREAM SHOPPE  5685 Cowrie St., Sechell  -885-1965-  in a nutshell  of assurance about the place but  as it turned out quite wide disagreements between the experts.  I first met Dr. Bell in the mid  '50s when sent to Toronto to  script a film about Alcoholics  Anonymous. Their leader, Dr.  Bob, had told me that addiction  was the result of a particular  chemical makeup in the addicted person. They no longer think  this of course, but at the time I  wondered and asked Dr. Bell for  a view.  He was very supportive of  the AA program but he said no.  There was, so far as he could  see, no special chemical makeup  causing one person to be addictive and another not. He took me  about his place, a comfortable,  rambling old house on a wooded  ravine and introduced me to  some of his people. They were a  pretty solid looking lot, including a wartime padre (non-  preaching) he had brought along  at the start. The only psychologist I met was a nervous looking  stuart nutter  skinny Swedish type, anything  but trendy. She was, Ihey said,  very good with group therapy  sessions.  Comparisons, then, between  these two addiction centres,  Donwoods and ARI;, I didn't  sec il al the lime. Certainly  today there arc differences  between the dedicated professionals trying to figure out what  to do wilh addiction.  What they are, you would  think, would he the firsl thing to  know. But Ihe differences arc  mostly whal they all fall out  about.  There is, what you might  call, a philosophical point of  view (Dr. Bell's); and what is  clearly a psychological view  (ARF's). Much, of course, of  whal they say and do they altogether agree with, but underlying there is always Ihis division.  One, il seems to me, is informed  by philosophy and the other just  by psychology.

Except for  eruptions of malicious night-time mischief like  thai of a week ago. Mischief that ruins a whole  summer's work.  Emily Gareau, chairperson of Gibsons Outreach  (GO) heads a group of directors, all volunteers,  that provides a place, an environment, where teens  can find recreation with no drugs, no alcohol present.  Outside, some of the teens have the garden  ready for planting. Indoors there is a pool table,  TV and VCR, computer, ping-pong table. Well  Ihose amenities were there until last Monday night.  That night someone put a boot or a club or a rock  through the TV and VCR, through the drywall, and  through every window.  This is the second time in a year that Ihe GO  building has been turned overnight into a dreadful  mess. The wooden shutters that made the building  look like a Texas concrete fortification did not  deter the intruders. Of course, the reverse is the  case here; Ihe crazies are not the ones holed up in  the building, but the ones outside running loose  like coyotes in the new moon.  At best that portion of Brothers Park has a junkyard look. There's the fenced roller rink, Ihe tattooed skateboard bowl, and an abandoned public  campsite with a jungle of underbrush creeping in  like the Mayan scenes of lost civilizations. Bacchanalian gatherings take place frequently,  unchecked, in the abandoned campsite. A community project to clear away all the underbrush could  help discourage these campsite revelries.  Despite the damage, the teen centre will carry  on. "There'll still be roller skating and indoors, the  youngsters can discover the old-fashioned fun of  board games," said Gareau, adding, "Our art room  can still function and the planned archery classes  will proceed. Pool and ping-pong loo."  The directors, Ian and Nathalie Webber, Rob  Lawson, Anne Gerri, Jacqui Nelson and Marcel  l.andry, firmly intend to continue the good work.  "Our spirits have revived after the shock of last  Tuesday morning, and teens and volunteers will  keep going," said Gareau.  "The GO program was initiated by people interested in good community relations between young  and old. Now we'd like to urge more volunteers to  come forward. It is really a communily responsibility to provide these programs for our teens,  especially the 13 to 16-year-olds."

Another month  or so after lhat, according to  Wayne Turner of Hydro, the  second phase of the program  will start for approximately two  months.  So, hang in there Creekers -  it isn't over yet. It is annoying  lo hear two chainsaws going at  the same time, and then the  shredder, either in front of your  properly or just down the road.  Apparently depending on the  width of roads, Hydro's right of  way is 10 per cent of the road  allowance, meaning Ihey could  limb six lo even 15 feel. If  some residents feel Hydro  shouldn't be limbing trees on  Iheir privale property and prevent them from doing so,  Hydro will be sending you a  letter to sign a waiver and you  will be billed if lines are affected or if adjacent property is  damaged by your trees.

Coast News, March 22,  1993  the  R���AL ���5TPT��� CORH6R  by Herb Craig  REP: GIBSONS REALTY  PREDICTIONS  Part 2  Last week we briefly discussed one of the factors which is  artificially pushing your housing prices up. By artificial, I  mean that your buying/selling homes or local ecomony has  very little effect on these outside pressures. And the end  result?  In my opinion, housing prices in 135 -150 will continue to go  up.  If we are right - it raises an interesting question. What  happens to your balanced middle class society. I think it's  going to create a real gap between the rich and the poor. And  who will be the rich and the poor in the future? Homeowners  and non-homeowners!  Thinking ol buying a home in the next five years? Or trading  up? You might not want to wait that long...

General meeting  The annual general meeting  of the Davis Bay/Wilson Creek  Community Association was  held March 9 and a new slate of  execulive members was voted  in. They are: Jim Smith, president; Alison Leduc, vice-president and secretary; John Den-  ham, treasurer; Eileen Nelsen,  Frank O'Brien and Reid Arnold,  directors.  One of the points of business  that arose at Ihis meeting was  the necessity to change Ihe  existing Bylaw 11 which  presently reads: "At its annual  general meeting in each year,  the society shall appoint a non-  member as auditor, who shall  audit all accounts and books of  the society and report of the  audit to the society at its annual  general meeting."  For some years, Jacob  Knaus, a member, has generously donated his time and expertise without charge to theasspct-  ation to act as auditor. This  arrangement has proven highly  satisfactory lo Ihe association  and has saved us a great deal of  money while accomplishing the  same goal as Ihe bylaw - that is  to have the books audited by a  person independent of the treasurer and olher members of Ihe  execulive.  For these reasons, the execulive is proposing to make Ihe  following change lo the bylaw:  "Persons lo be appointed auditor  may be members of Ihe society  but shall not be directors or officers, nor may they have authority lo sign cheques or accounts  on behalf of the society or otherwise deal with or have access lo  Ihe society's funds." This mailer  will be put to a vole al Ihe next  meeting April 13 at 1 pm -  please be there.

Ferries and  Marine Workers' Union, Canadicin Union of Public Employees - all  were more than generous with their show of solidarity, financial  assistance and donations of food and other useful Items to the  locked-out workers.  The care and concern that the Hospital Employees Union  demonstrated by spending time on the picket line with Bayside  workers, when the health care system is under attack and the HEU  has many battles of its own to fight, was particularly moving.  The Coast News, Leader, and Sunshine Press are to be  commended for their interest in this issue, and their fair and  objective reporting of it.  And last, but not least, a big thank you is in order to the many  people and businesses in the community that showed their support  through kind words, and generous donations of their time and  understanding.  The Union encourages its membership to get involved in the  community and support local business in every way that it can.  by Deanna Lucdcr, 88S-7365  Judging by all Ihe traffic and constant  activity at the arena, the Midgett AA ftovin-  cial Championship Tournament was a great  success. In addition to exciting tux-key, visitors got lo see some of the Sunshine Coast  and to experience our regular sunshine as  well as some of our special liquid variety.  It's ironic is that the tournament took place  in about the only pari of Canada not covered  in ice and snow. I hope everyone enjoyed  themselves and experienced the warmth of  our community, as well as of our weather.

Arts .centre play  There's a play coming up at the Aits Centre that sounds intriguing. My Three Dads is  described as a poignant and funny odyssey  of self-discovery after an adolescent boy  concludes that he has been adopted.  It is written and performed by Newfoundlander, John Taylor, who has successfully  performed his play at the Atlantic Fringe  Festival and on CBC Radio's Morningside.  There will be one performance only on  March 27 at 8pm. Tickets can be purchased  at the Arts Centre or at the usual retail outlets.  Get to the Trail Bay Mall early on Thursday, March 25 or you'll miss out on the  wonderful baking. The St. Hilda's Anglican  Church women's bake sale gets underway at  9:30 am and runs until goods are sold out.  They are raising funds for a new church hall.  Many non-church members use and enjoy  the present facility, so this project really  deserves our support.  On March 25 at 2 pm the first meeting of  a newly formed Suncoast association, the  Retired Teachers Branch 46 will take place  at the Sechelt Seniors Centre on Trail  Avenue. I wonder if teachers realize how  deeply they affect their students. I still  remember my grade 1 teacher of 40 years  ago and most of my subsequent teachers  with different degrees of enthusiasm, of  course.

Joel Johnstone pholo  haltmoon happenings  by Ruth Forrester, 885-2214  This is the time of early spring when people  become aware of changes in nature. Last week we  reported the first hummingbird sighting in Halfmoon Bay, but although most of us have been  watching out for our dear wee friends, so far they  seem to be keeping out of focus. Maybe they  decided it is too cold to hang around, and headed  back to warmer climes.  Whales Sighted  One of our local young nature watchers, Jenny  Brooke of Redrooffs, was really thrilled last week  when she watched a huge group of killer whales  pass in front of her house and head up towards  Welcome Pass. "It was really neat," was Jenny's  comment at having seen about four groups with  one huge bull leading and another one at the rear.  She also spotted a little baby among the group.  Friends of Billie Graves of Mintie Road in  Halfmoon Bay will be sorry to hear that Billie is  presently a patient at St. Mary's Hospital. I know  that good wishes for Billie's speedy recovery go to  harbour watch  her from all of us. Get well soon Billie,  Holly Brynelsen  A lady, who for the past 15 years has lived in  the house across the water from the Jolly Roger  died peacefully in her home.  Holly Brynelsen moved from Vancouver when  she married John Brynelsen, who was the well-  known former owner of the original Jolly Roger  Inn. John died in 1982 and Holly continued to live  in the home where she was dearly loved by her  step-family and grandchildren, who will miss her.  She was a kind and gentle lady who will also be  missed by Ina Grafe, her long-time friend who  helped take care and give companionship to Holly  for many years.

Klphlnslone students collect books lo send lo an orphan school In Uganda.  Kyla McDonald photo  Schools supplies sought for Uganda  by Kyla McDonald  Can you imagine living in a world where the  buildings are constructed with trees, reeds, mud  and cow dung? This is an accurate description of  lhe Katatumba free orphan school in Uganda,  where having a pencil sharpener is enough to bring  joy to one of the 170 students who attend school  there.  This'school was started by Mr. Bone/Katatumba in 1987, because he believed that the best way  to help the poor was through education. When Ihe  school opened, it had only 20 pupils and one class.  Since then, the number of students has grown to  more than eight times that number.  Although the school is a huge success, money  and supplies are always in demand. Carol Fisher  has begun a drive to collect items on the Sunshine  Coasl and Elphinstone Secondary school is participating in this project and has already collected  more than 2,000 items.  The Katatumba school has just finished building a library, but has only 120 books to put in it.  Because of this, books are one of the most important items to be collected. Anyone wilh old books,  or any other items they wish to donate, may contact Carol Fisher at 885-7293 or Merv Messner at  886-2910. They will give dropoff locations or if  necessary, will pick up.  Elphinstone Secondary would like to thank all  those students and teachers who have donated  items to this worthy cause.

Death-defying high seas ordeal  kindles reverence for sanctity of life  by Keith Thirkell  It is not unusual for near-  death experiences to have a  cataclysmic effect on a person's  spiritual or philosophical outlook.  For 22-year-old Stanley  Leben, who works for Whiskey  Jack Reforestation of Sechelt,  the imponderable came into  sharp focus during a four-day  ordeal in December. Leben, who  calls himself "a bush man," has  spent most of his life island  jumping between Quadra Island  and points north and east. He  says for his age he probably  knows this area as well as anyone and appreciates its nuances  and extremities of geography  and climate. "The area around  Knight Inlet is some of the most  dangerous and wild on the    b.,.  whole, south Coast," he said, u,,,  during a recent interview in,(���> | * -  Roberts Creek.  On Dec. 5, Leben discovered  first hand just how unforgiving  and treacherous the conditions  can be in that region. "Me and a  friend, Travis Mathieson, were  out in a welded aluminum  powerboat checking his trap line  up Thompson sound. We were  returning across some open  water to Minstrel Island to make  a phone call when a real heavy  wind started lo howl down  behind us," he recalled.  "The seas were steadily rising and before we knew what  was happening the waves  around us were towering down  on our boat. The wind became  so fierce there were waler  spouts all around lifting high  into the air. The wheelhouse  seemed to get blasted from  behind by a hurricane gust of  wind which drove the bow  down into the wave in front of  us. Water poured in, then a  massive wave behind drove us  end over end and next thing we  knew we were both underwater  and scrambling to find anything  to grab onto."  Leben said they tried several  limes lo pull the boat upright but  ihe waves just kept smashing it  back down. "If the boat wasn't  built with an air lock I wouldn't  he talking to you right now,"  Leben said.  Whal ensued was eight and a  half hours of endurance in the  frigid inlet temperatures.  Leben and Mathieson capsized at 3:30 pm, then drifted  through darkness, clinging to  the upturned vessel. The waves  seemed unrelenting and immediate rescue was out of the question. "I knew I was going to die,  and I accepted it," Leben said of  the time.  "I wasn't going to give up,  though I just couldn't see any  hope for survival. After I gave  into what appeared to be the  inevitable, a calmness came  over me like a gift from God. It  was as if by accepting death the  universe had somehow shown  pity on me. Travis and I hugged  each other, said goodbye and  waited."  Leben was wearing three  wool sweaters, which he credits  fnnhis survival. "Yak wool and  lhe grace of Cod saved me."  A north-easterly current  pushed Ihe hapless ship and its  occupants through the night  some seven miles, until distant  waves could be heard crashing  on a shore: Gilford Island. At  length, the boat smashed down  onto a rocky beach and Leben  clasped onto a rock. He could  faintly see his companion, in  imminent danger of death. The  aluminum boal, weighing several thousand pounds, was cascading towards Mathieson's helpless figure trapped between the  boat and the beach. Said Leben:  "I had hardly any feeling in any  of my body, my jaw was frozen  shut so I couldn't yell at Travis,  but somehow I mustered enough  strength to seize his arm and  drag him onto the rock.  "The boat then rolled relentlessly back and forth, grinding  and crashing on the beach: I can  still hear that gruesome sound of  aluminum being pulverized by  the unabated waves."  Miraculously, they survived  until morning came, despite  severe hyperthermia and  exhaustion. The boat had somehow come to be stranded on the  beach, a jerry can of gasoline  still attached to the mangled  remains of the outboard motor.  All the usable safety equipment  that was stowed was now flotsam. On the second night, the  pair made a fairly sound shelter  using Leben's 'Bowie' knife.  "That knife and the gasoline  were another saving grace."  Since Mathieson had an  injured leg, they decided the  only course to rescue (a remote'"  possibility considering the**jjrer  no people in that region in the  winter), was to stay together and  build a bonfire which would be'  visible from any passing boat.  They rowed the upturned boat  about half a mile to the most  visible point and when on the  fourth day they saw a tug on the  horizon, lit a fire with the gasoline and made smoke signals  using clam sacks.  Leben says another 10 minutes on that capsized boat or day  on the beach and they'd have  been goners. They were flown  by helicopter to Port McNeill,  where the staff and Coast Guard  said it was an absolute miracle  they were still alive. Gangrene  had set in on both of then and  the possibility of amputation  lingered. They hadn't eaten  anything in four days except  seaweed. They were treated in  hospital for nerve and skin tissue damage, and three months  later Leben still walks with a  slight limp.  "Everything and every  moment is now sacred to me,"  Leben said, "and I think I was  spared for some /mure purpose  which might beof service to the  planet",   ,...,',  He said he has a new sense of  awe about the sanctity of every  moment and.all life. "It's too  bad it usually has to come to  something like this before people take a closer look at the true  value of their lives."

Inside Information  ^^        on Energy Efficiency  "^tromuumpttam)  If you're looking for a new appliance,  look for the new EnerGuide label. You'll  find it on every new refrigerator,  freezer, clothes washer, dryer, range or  dishwasher, sold in Canada.  The new EnerGuide label shows  the typical amount of energy an  appliance will use in one year.  By looking at the label, you can  compare the energy consumption  of one appliance to others with  similar features.  The lower the number, the more  energy-efficient the appliance.  It's that simple.  Choosing an energy-efficient  model today can add up to a lot  of savings over the lifetime of the appliance.  So become energy wise.

Jt_      ��� Coast News, March 22, 1993  13  leisure  In the Hunt for artistic  recognition- province-wide  by Darah Hansen  Like pages torn from the personal diary of the artist, the  work of Dianne Hunt hangs on  the walls of the Sunshine Coast  Art Centre for all to see and  read.  Entitled, The Nigger of  Today Falls into No Identifiable  Group, Hunt's submission is a  series of six pencil on paper  sketches. The look of each is  clean and denotes a simplicity of  message - a visual trick for  something much deeper.  In poetic form, Hunt invites  her viewers to feel her growing  pains, her rejections caused, it  appears, by her refusal to conform as a young adult.  Her words reflect back to earlier days where she looks now  with eyes of experience and  confidence on a girl who clearly  had difficulty being something  she wasn't for the sake of Ihe  norm.  "As I come into awareness, I  gain my ability to doubt, to  doubt everything, even status,  even achievement, even the  apparent good intentions of others... Believing what you said  aboul yourselves, aboul mc,  look away my ability to doubt,"  Hunt writes in one of the  frames.  Her words arc a reassessment  of things important, a rearrangement for her own sanity's sake  the meaning of people, things,  and places.  "Tracy - she is the one, the  friend from back then before I  went crazy -1 have more respect  for (though all of the people  from hack then I have more  respect for as having a place in  life as the original ones). She  was not the one who became  famous, not the one best looking, not the one who could be  called lhe best, just Ihe 'longin-  gest,' lhe centre, the mosi real,  lhe mosi nearly aware, Ihe most  like plain-old life is a good  thing, trie tesfliltcli ittihg in  herself."  Roger Handling's Transference of Souls, one of Ihe pieces  selected for special mention by jurors in the Sunshine Coast  regional show, Images and Objects. Darah Hansen pholo  Her words reflect a sense of    cils' provincial exhibit, Images  comfort, a sense of acceptance  of self, and a sense of belonging.  "Significant Image from a  dream," she writes above the  image of a couple silling in quiet  friendship, "Yes, I'll be your  salvation despite your strange  otherness."  Dianne Hunt's work is  among IS pieces of art selected  by jurors Gordon Smith and  Ann RoMnhurg to represent the  Sanshtoe-eoaWt-trtrAMetrfBly  of British Columbia Arts Coun-  and Objects XI, to be held in  Trail May 26 to 30.  All 15 are presently on display at the Sechelt Arts Centre  along with 16 other works  which received honourable mention al the recent juried show.  Smith and Rosenburg chose  the 31 works from a total of 86  pieces submitted by 35 local  artists at Ihe regional art exhibition, March 6.  Arts CfSnTtinlil Marcl  My Three Dads offers plateful  of laughs for solo Sechelt show  The Arts Centre offers tantalizing treats for your palate and  your funny bone, Saturday,  March 27 at 8 pm.  Arts Centre crew promise  'wicked' desserts and  actor/writer John Taylor vows  lo bum off those calories with a  healthy dose of laughter. His  one-man show, My Three Dads,  originated as a late night offering at the LSPU Hall in St.  John's, Newfoundland, but  demand for the performance  forced the powers that be lo  move him into an earlier time  slot and onto the mainstage.  And, there he stayed, garnering  rave reviews from the local  press and audiences alike.  My Three Dads is Taylor's  first script and he was lucky  enough to capture the attention  of Andy Jones, Newfoundland's  premiere actor/director (of  CODCO fame) who jumped at  the chance to direct it.  "One of the greal joys of the  show is John's storytelling ability," Jones said. "And, that's  what audiences get - a very  interesting and very honest,  funny, moving story."  Jones explained that he feels  that lhe script's strength is that  it speaks for the next generation.  A group who has been generally  silent in the theatre, particularly  in the writing arena, until now.  Jones senses that Generation X  is finding its voice and Taylor's  script reflects that movement.  The play is about a young  man in search of his father. The  search becomes a journey and  an introduction to the many  peculiar characters he meets  along the way.  Taylor has an incredible ability to bring an odd assortment of  people to life in a witty, charming way. Taylor's character  finds his real father after travelling through the US to Houston,  Texas. Here, he finds his father,  an Iranian plastic surgeon.  There will be one performance only in a cabaret style  production. Refreshments by all  accounts, will be dangerously  delicious and will round off a  perfect night out.  Tickets are available at  Talewind Books, Coast Books,  Roberls Creek General Store,  Sayward Books and at the Arts  Centre.

The team has won ils way to  the league cup finals being held  nexl week (March 26). There  they will play Burna-  by's Cliff Avenue       Uniled for the trophy.  And coach Howie  Joe says his team has  got a real chance al  winning.  "We've been get-  ling some scouting  reports ahout Ihe  liurnahy leam." says  Joe about the compel!-       lion,    "and    we're  expecting a win."  Joe says the leam, which is  classed in Ihe 16 and under age  group, has had lo come hack  after a poor start to the year.  He said due lo player  injuries, the team suffered some  had losses lo competitors in  Richmond and Langley.  Joe added the leam had to  adjust lo Ihe loss of Iwo of their  lop players who turned 17 and  wen: no longer qualified to play  in their age category.  But it didn't lake long for  things to start coming together.  And their regular season  wrapped up with the team rank-  mlnorball  'We just tell  them to play  bard and win  one game at  a lime'  ���Howie Joe  ing eight wins, three losses and  one tie. That's good enough to  lop lhe gold division standings  in either first or second place  (depending on the outcome of a  division game yet to be played  between Richmond and Ladner).  On March 28, the      Pegasus team will  play another important game as part of  the quarter finals for  Ihe provincial cup.  It's scheduled as a  home game to take  place at Ted Dixon  park against North  Delta United.           Joe said if Ihe  team should win Ihis  game, they'll be off  next lo Ihe semi-finals against  an as yet undetermined team  from Vancouver Island.  Joe, who has watched the  leam come together for Ihe pasl  three years, said much of ihe  credit for the team's success  goes to Ihe players themselves  whom he describes as being  "really dedicated lo soccer."  And though they expect good  things ,1'rom ihe games to come,  Joe said that's not whal the team  sees as its overall goal.  "We jusl tell Ihem lo play  hard and win one game at a  time."

It was at one  time understood that the Gibsons sewage system would be  developed in three phases. People who purchased lots on  Georgia Bluff have installed  their own systems, sometimes at  great personal expense and say  "Why pay again?"  Chinook salmon stocks have  depleted to dangerously low  numbers and no one seems to be  able to agree on what to do to  stive the species, so federal fisheries minister Tom Siddon  announced new restrictions  designed to bring back the chinook stocks in the .Strait of  Georgia.  Bolh commercial and sports  fishermen have mounted a massive lobby against the new  restrictions.  lOYEa-VRSAGO  In a letter to the editor, John  .Shaske, chairman of the transportation committee of the  .SCRD urged residents to use  the late sailing that was being  scheduled over Easter holidays  and during the summer. The  usage of these late sailings will  be monitored closely and future  schedules will be influenced by  these numbers.  15YE/VRSAGO  In an open letter to residents  of the Sunshine Coast, the Gibsons and District Chamber of  Commerce wrote: The Gibsons  marina is beginning to be a reality. If all goes well, the marina  could be in operation by 1979,  but only if the people of this  area support it and demonstrate  their support. The chamber of  commerce would like to take  this opportunity to pledge its  wholehearted endorsement of  the Gibsons marina."  20 YEARS AGO  Overall winner of the Sea  Cavalcade poster contest was Jo  Small, a grade 11 student at  Elphinstone. She will receive a  $130 Canada Savings Bond and  a bursary to be used to further  her education.  "25'YEXRS AGO  Residents from the Northwest Territories as well as  Washington stale are making  enquiries to the Sunshine Coast  real estate offices seeking  acreage and waterfront properly-  The demands are much heavier than they were just five  years ago, according to various  realtors.  30 YEARS AGO  Pender Harbour secondary  school won the top awards in  the Powell River/Sechell school  district drama festival held  March 16 at Elphinstone school  hall. Pender Harbour won the  best drama, best actress and best  actor awards.  40 YEARS AGO  Two brothers, both residents  of Gibsons were fined $10 and  costs, each on a plea of guilty lo  a charge of being intoxicated in  a public place.  brother staled it was his  brother's birthday and they had  been celebrating. Both promised  to behave themselves in Ihe  future.  45 YEARS AGO  The recent opening of Al  Lloyd's Cash Store at Garden  Bay introduces lo the residents  of Pender Harbour, a new,  smart, self-service store. The  interior of the store is bright and  goods are displayed on light  blue islands of shelves against  the background of white walls.

This Information Series Presented by:  BONNIEBROOK INDUSTRIES LTD.  Septic Tank Pumping Services serving Gibsons,  Sechelt, Pender Harbour areas.  886-7064 (collect)  .4  by Keith Thirkell  The Pender Harbour Wildlife  Society hosted an educational  outing last Saturday to one of  Ihe only known stands of old-  growth Douglas Fir on the  Sechelt Peninsula.  John Field led the lour,  which took a group of 40 keen  naturalists into the almost  impenetrable bush behind Halfmoon Bay. Field said the  turnout was gratifying and  indicative of the ecological  interest prevalent in Ihe community.  The lour started on a logging  road which veers off Highway  101 about half a mile south of  Trout lake.  After a head-bashing ride on  a progressively deteriorating  road, the convoy came lo a hall  after three miles. A leisurely  stroll ensued, meandering  through a stunning and somewhat primeval example of  coastal temperate rain forest.  A grove of several dozen  massive Douglas Firs remain,  most measuring about 200 feel.  The voices of the anl-likc  humans surrounded by the towering giants gave off an ambience reminiscent of a Gothic  cathedral.  One particular giant, locally  known as the Halfmoon Bay Fir,  was surveyed by naturalist Tony  Greenfield and determined to be  212 feet high, with a broken top.  Greenfield estimates il is 350  years old with somewhere in the  neighborhood of 30,000 board  feet of lumber encased in the  foot-thick bark.

Coasl resident Harold Swanson,  who said he came along because  "I thought it would be a nice  way to spend a Salurday morning. I've come to       this spot for  decades and I just  enjoy seeing the  big old Irees."  Swanson says  lhe fact lhal these  trees still exist is  quite miraculous.  "A massive fire  ripped through  most of the Sun-  shine Coast in 1917 and only  those trees big enough lo withstand Ihe heat could survive.  Because the bark on the Dou-  The tour group  agreed tbe grove  would make an  excellent park  because of ils  accessibility and  history  fectly suited lo endure Ihe heal."  Fire scar is slill evident on some  of the trees, licking up as high  as 50 feel on a few.           Ian  and  Pal  Ridgeway of  Gibsons said Ihey  went along lo see  some of Ihe "last  old growth still  within easy walking distance on  the Sunshine  Coast."  The lour group  agreed the grove  would make an excellent park  because of ils accessibility and  history. Greenfield said an  application for park status was  glas fir is so thick, it was per-      made to the Ministry of Forests  Keith Thirkell pholo  one and a half years ago.  The forestry office in Powell  River recently informed him  that the area has been selected  for protection.  For now, Greenfield says, it  will fall under a category called  UREP, for Use, Recreation and  Enjoyment by the Public.  Greenfield says it could become  an important destination foreco-  lourisls, but stressed thai some  protective measures will have to  be taken lo ensure continued  survival of the stand.  The ministry has alloted  some money for constructing  trails and erecting rope barricades around Ihe giants, to help  limit possible erosion associated  wilh public use.  Wilson vows to continue as MLA  from page 1  For his own part, Wilson says lhat recently  "there's no doubt I haven't been able to devote  myself to the extent that I usually do," but adds,  "My ability as an effective MLA hasn't been  impaired at all over the long term.  "If I've let people down I apologize for that. I  would ask lhat people try to spend a few days in  my shoes and tell me what they would have done  differently... It was an extremely difficult time."  Wilson says regardless of whether he runs as  leader, he will continue to serve his term as an  MLA.  Meanwhile, federal MP Ray Skelly says recent  events won't deter people from going into politics.  "I think lhat people who have an interest in politics know what it's about," he says. "It's a tough  business and can often be unforgiving."   .
