 <  Z Legislative Library  - Parliament Buildings  Victoria, B.C. V8V 1X4  89.8  by Penny Fuller  Sechell council chambers  were packed last Thursday for a  meeting with the Director of  Library Services, Barbara  Grenaeus, and the Library Consultant for the Sunshine Coast,  Jim Looney. Members of both  the Gibsons and Sechelt Library  Associations, the regional board  and Gibsons council attended  the meeling to express their  frustration with the delays in  funding for the libraries and to  hear what solutions the two provincial representatives could offer.  Sechelt   alderman   Joyce  iraries are underfunded  Kolibas chaired the meeting and  began by explaining her  council's confusion over accusations that they were responsible for blocking the process  that would facilitate funding for  the libraries. She told the  meeting that council had simply  wanted some clarification on  who would be receiving and administering any monies that  were raised for the library function. There was also some concern, she said, about becoming  part of a function under the  Sunshine Coast Regional District (SCRD) in case Sechelt  decided it wanted to fund a  municipal library.  Peggy Connor, chairman ot  the SCRD expressed frustration  with Sechelt's stance. She told  Mrs. Kolibas that at meetings  held after the Feeney repor on  libraries on the Sunshine Coast,  was released, representatives  from each of the governing  bodies had agreed to cooperate  on a regional library system. All  that had been required, she  said, to access provincial funding and begin the process of  supporting the libraries through  tax money, were the signatures  of the two mayors and herself.  When Sechelt wouldn't sign the  agreement, everything had to be  reworked.  Barbara Grenaeus didn't  <.oniment on the apparent mis-  communication between the  wirious political representatives,  but throughout the meeting  amsistanily made Ihe poinl lhat  libraries on ihe Sunshine Coast  are severely under-funded. In  1987, she pointed out, Sechelt  library had ihe lowest per capita  funding ever from local governmenl in the province, and Gib-  sons had the second lowest.  Sechelt Alderman Bob Wilson hastily pointed out that as  ">on as council had become  :tware of Ihe situation and the  Josperate need for funding, it  had increased ihe gram to the  library from $5000 to $22,000.  Grenaeus told the meeling  that from Ihe provincial point  of view ihe funding formula for  local libraries should be aboul  15 percent from Ihe provincial  governmenl and 85 percent  from local government. A  minimum cost sharing would be  a 50-50 division, she said.  Regional director Jim Gurney  told the meeting lhat Gibsons  and the SCRD had applied for  letters patent which would permit the holding of a referendum  which would ask the taxpayers  of Areas 'E' and 'F' to contribute lo Ihe funding of the  Gibsons Library. Art McPhee  of the Sechelt Library Association added that a study done  last summer indicated that two-  thirds of the users of the Gibsons Library come from outside  the municipal boundaries. The  Sechelt Library has one-third of  its users outside of its boundaries.  The collaboration of Gibsons  the the regional district will also  allow ihe library to apply for  more provincial funds for  books.

Membership in any industrial  association came into question  at the November 28 monthly  EDC meeting.  The issue arose when the  commission received a letter  from the Aquaculture Association asking for its yearly dues.  Gibsons Chamber of Commerce representative, Ken Collins suggested the commission  should not belong to any industry association but should  "maintain a principled  autonomy", supporting but not  belonging to any such association.  He was supported by chairman Maurice Egan who stated,  "I don't think that the EDC  should belong to any association as a member. We can work  very closely with major  economic sectors, and I would  encourage individual members  of the commission to participate  in any of these associations, but  the commission doesn't need to  belong."  Members also agreed it was  not necessary for the commission, as a whole, to meet with  Connor and Associates, a company which is doing a social and  economic study on the Howe  Sound Pulp and Paper mill expansion.  Egan pointed out, "Their job  is to gather information on  social impact and share thai  with the mill management, the  Town of Gibsons, the regional  district and the media. If the  EDC has any concerns we  should talk to the mill management."  He added that most of the  commission members already  talked to representatives from  the company on an individual  basis.  Fishermen the losers  by Harold Blaine  Aboul $500,000 a year in  local shell fishermen's earnings,  al least 40 fishing jobs and 15  fishing boats.  That's whal ihe cost will be al  Gibsons due lo the closure of  Howe Sound waters because of  dioxin pollution from two local-  area pulp and paper mills,  estimates local shrimp fisherman Danny Arundel.  A large area of Howe Sound  December 1 by federal governmenl order was closed lo crab,  prawn and shrimp fishermen.  The closure came on the day  about 25 local prawn boats were  setting out to start the opening  day of prawn fishing in local  waters, many of them to the  area closed.  "They (the pulp mills) should  ^..compensate   the   fishermen.  They (the mills) polluted il. The  prawn   fishermen   are   prelty  mad. Everybody's pretty mad,"  Instead of trawling for shrimp last week in the waters of inner Howe Sound, Danny Arundel had his  vessel tied up at the Gibsons Government Wharf because shrimp fishing on his favourite grounds was  suddenly banned for health reasons. -Harold Blaine phmo  EDC leaves fish farm group  shrimp fisherman Arundel told  this newspaper in an interview  from the deck of his boat at the  Gibsons Governmenl Wharf.  The waters closed to fishing  are between the mainland shore  and Gambier-Anvil islands  shores from the Langdale ferry  terminal to Squamish. That's  exactly the area Arundel has  fished for iwo months of each  year, catching 6000 to 10,000  pounds of shrimp sold for  $30,000.  "That's usually where I fish  for shrimp. But mostly it's  prawn fishermen in that area,"  he said. Now all these fishermen  have to look for new grounds.  Arundel fishes for side-stripe  shrimp. Now he expects he'll  have to go north up the coast  for these shrimp. He and about  five other shrimpers, plus 25  prawn boats.  He admits there's lots of  ocean out there to fish in and  other grounds he knows that are  good. But to take his boat  Tanya Ray to these other  fishing grounds will be expensive.  It will involve more work,  more fuel, more refrigeration  equipment, more distance.  Most will have to move their  boats and homes to a different  area because there will be no  jobs here.  "I don't suppose it (the closed waters) will ever open up  again, now it's closed," he said.  The prawn fishery closing on  the opening day of the season  was particularly hard on those  fishermen. With boats carrying  from two to six persons, they  were all outfitted and had people hired for the start.  All ihe prawn fishermen from  Gibsons apparently went out  fishing anyway, because none  of them could be found at the  wharf. They'll be out upward of  a month and their fishing success won't be known until then.  Hughes says  Port Mellon is responding  "It's only in the last three  years that instruments were  developed and able to detect  and measure the highly toxic  chlorinated dioxins coming  from the Port Mellon pulp mill.  Before that we got (testing  readings of) zero," said Howe  Sound Pulp and Paper Lid.  President Bill Hughes Friday in  an interview by telephone with  this newspaper.  He said he wasn't really surprised about the recent dioxin-  related events.  "But the knowledgeable environmentalists are more worried about the long-term effects  of chlorinated organics lhan  about dioxins," he said.  His mill already has laken  steps to reduce the generation of  the highly toxic subslances lhat  caused the sudden closing of the  local fishery. By 1990 and  maybe even ihe last quarler of  1989 the problem should be  solved by process changes.  That will be only five years  afler instruments were  developed lhat could measure  the worrisome toxic substances.  In its new mill Howe Sound is  displacing half of ihe chlorine-  used wilh chlorine dioxide lo  eliminate ihe production of  chlorinated dioxins and  chlorinated phenols, the highly  toxic subslances causing the  fishery closure.  The toxic dioxins musl have  started to appear in the early  1960's when Ihe bleach planl  went in at the Port Mellon mill,  says Hughes. These toxics  wouldn't have been produced  from Ihe time the mill first  started operating in 1908.  What is being done about the  more worrisome chlorinated  organics al Port Mellon is to use  an oxygen delignification process to recover this material.  This is so it can be used as fuel  and burned in the recovery  boiler.  That will make the Port  Mellon mill the only one of its  kind in British Columbia and at  least one of a very few in  Canada. Such mills are common in Scandinavia, however,  he says.  The Howe Sound president  predicts his mill will satisfy any  new regulations imposed by the  federal and provincial governments.  "We have a pretty good idea  of what the regulations will be.  It's only a matter of how  soon," he told the Coast News,  Howe Sound will have a  reduction of about 75 per cent  of chlorinated organics by 1990,  from six and a half to 1.80  kilograms of total chlorinated  organics per ton of pulp produced.

Sunshine Coasl resident Wilson will remain as leader of the  party without a leadership convention being held. He said the  convention announced September 13 now won't be held  because there is no opponent now offering.  The expected opponent, Jack Poole, recently announced  that for personal reasons he won't be running in the planned  spring convention.  "I have worked hard for the people of Area 'A' and the  people of the Sunshine Coast, and I will continue to do so as  an elected member of the regional board. A successful election in Point Grey will win me a seat in the Legislature in Victoria and from that position 1 will be able to advance not only  the concerns of Vancouver-Point Grey constitutents, but as  Liberal Leader, I can promise you this area will have the vote  it so desperately needs."  Serving the Sunshine Coast since 1945 uoast News, uecemDer5,1988  Comment  f  A way to  serve mankind  It could be that Uniied Nations Human Rights Day  December 10 has the potential of being the most important  day of the year for Ihe people here on the Sunshine Coast,  as much as for all Ihe citizens of the planet. If more people  everywhere began thinking more in lhat direction, Ihere is  every reason lo believe the world could begin to be  transformed for the better.  Stop and think for a moment. Imagine what local communities and ihe world in general mighl be like if  everyone's human rights everywhere were perfectly  respected.  Think of how all the greal problems of loday would be  affected. Lisl some of ihem: child abuse, poverty,  discrimination againsl women, Native rights, wife abuse,  hilingualisni, pollution, crime, violence, fetal rights.  Think of some greal world problems: peace, racial  discrimination, religious and political discrimination,  racial and religious wars, armed aggression, economic exploitation, epidemics, starvation.  Here in Canada, and certainly too here on the Sunshine  Coasl, the human rights situation is far from perfect. For  instance, a national survey not very long ago noted Native  employees were conspicuous by their almost complete  absence from the Staffs of our federally chartered banking  institutions, What is the situation where you do your  banking?  Around Ihe world the vast majority of the human race is  deprived of mosl of its human rights by dictatorial,  despotic regimes. The democracies with their relatively  belter human rights sltuaitons are a fairly small minority  on Ihe world scene.  What can be done aboul human rights on Uniied Nations Human Rights Day, Salurday?  On the local level individuals can stop and Ihink aboul  their personal prejudices, Iheir attitudes toward minority  groups, their willingness to tolerate differences of opinion  and belief or culture in other individuals and groups.  Financial and volunteer support can be devoted to  reputable organizations working for human rights within  the community, province and nation.  On the world level, the United Nations is obviously the  best and most effeclive formal and legislative force there is  available in support of an improved world human rights  situation. The UN therefore needs Ihe protection and support of public opinion.  Probably the mosl effective private and independent  organization now working for human rights around the  world is Amnesty International. It works simply through  research, information, publicity and letter writing campaigns.  Its motto that one is better to light a candle than (o curse  the darkness is probably about the besl advice for all of us,  be it in local Sunshine Coast communities or on the international scene. A branch of it recently formed here. It offers membership or volunleer opportunity, for instance, to  anyone in this area wishing to do something worthwhile  for human rights on December 10.  ...from the files of the CCMST NEWS  5 YEARS AGO  Work on the new Gibsons Marina was fully under way  but the related marina hotel was said to be temporarily  delayed. A 750 ton 26 inch dredge was hard at work and  was expected to finish in three weeks.  The Shorncliffe Intermediate Care Facility was officially opened in Sechelt. It had 50 beds.  A 165 pound 9 year old cougar that prowled in the  Pender Harbour/Lord Jim's Lodge area was shot near  the lodge by conservation officer Jamie Stephen.  10 YEARS AGO  The official opening ceremonies for the new Pender  Harbour Secondary School took place December 1, One  time principal ot the school, Frances Fleming, was in  fine form last week when she officiated at the meeting.  Many members and guests attended the annual  meeting of the Pender Harbour Senior Citizens Branch.  Friends were happy to welcome back Jean Kousseau  after her stay in the Interior.  20 YEARS AGO  New Democratic Party MP, Grace Maclnnes addressed an audience in Gibsons Legion Hali, during which  she reminisced about her childhood in Gibsons 50 years  ago. One story involved some of the populace seated  around a stove in the old Winn Store discussing what  they should do with the Kaiser as a result of the Allied  victory in France.  30 YEARS AGO  Word has reached Gibsons of the death of Ike Emmer-  son, a pioneer resident of Gibsons.  Raging torrents breaking banks of normal streams  surged down fairly steep slopes and at one point  started to undermine the highway. Mud and rubble was  washed onto the roadway and slowed down traffic.  40 YEARS AGO  The road-mending bee planned by the businessmen  of the district became an actuality when drivers with  donated dump trucks and more than a dozen other men,  mostly bus, truck and taxi drivers, tried their hands at  road building.

It is,  therefore, just aboul the most  frightening of all possible  pollutants and lo be avoided at  almost any cost.  Il was, therefore, a shock to  beat all shocks Ihis last few days  to find Ihe waters off the  southeastern shore of our Sunshine Coasl contained enough  of such an awful substance that  fishing for shellfish had to be  stopped. Industrial pollution  has come home lo roost with a  vengeance.  So far there is only a health  warning aboul repeated eating  of crabs, prawns and shrimp  from a limited area of Howe  Sound. More particularly the  waters where shellfish are a  health hazard can be described  as including Thornbrough  Channel and Upper Howe  Sound.  These walers are immediately  adjacent to two local pulp mills.  They have restricted mixing  with larger adjacent water  bodies because of the surrounding islands and mainland.  The loxic dioxins and furans  in these waters are said to come  from two nearby pulp mills.  The toxic substances are  generated in the pulp making  process.  The obvious immediate reaction to the situation is to say the  flow of these terrible toxins into  the sea water must be immediately stopped. The obvious  thing lo do is shut down the  mills if that is necessary to stop  the pollution.  Afler all, the waters of Howe  Sound are used for swimming,  boating and other water sports.  The sea life feeds birds, animals  and man.  Mosl importantly, the vegetation and fish���as well as water  insects���are bathed in these  waters. These waters mix with  the more distant waters of  Howe Sound and Georgia  Strait. The chemical may  therefore spread indefinitely.  There are still more hideous  possibilities to consider. The  testing program for the waters  around pulp mills isn't yet  finished. It is possible other  mills will be found to be equally  bad polluters of the environment.  Close them down, too, you  say, until they are operated  without creating these terrible  substances. Probably there is  hardly anyone who doesn't  react in that same way.  If it were that simple, these  dioxin and furan producing  mills could all be closed tomorrow. In fact.they would probably have been closed yesterday.  However, the pulp from these  mills is depended upon for an  innumberable assortment of  products. Many of these products are a necessity.  What would our countless  parents of babies do if the supply of disposable diapers suddenly stopped. Families would adjust, eventually, returning  perhaps to the old cloth diaper  method. But they couldn't adjust overnight.  Our food and goods packaging and delivery system simply  couldn't function without car  tons for milk and other such  things, without cardboard  boxes and paper bags. The  number of necessary products  which stem from wood pulp  would undoubtedly boggle the  mind if all were compiled in a  single list.  Then there is Ihe olher question. What about the huge segment of our local, national and  provincial economy which  depends upon the pulp and  paper industry.  Not only are we here on the  Sunshine Coast the ones most  immediately exposed to the  polluted waters adjacent to  these mills, we are also the most  dependent on the jobs they  create. The same economic  necessity exists for all the people  in the province and across the  nation, even if nol so immediately so.  The losses our fishermen face  because of polluted waters and  fishing area closures is greal and  serious. The dangers to everyone from such pollution of our  surrounding waters is greal and  certain.  Yet if the mills close, our  whole economy would slow to a  snail's pace. Where would all  the loggers, the boatmen, the  mill hands, the local mill suppliers earn their livelihood?  The list of those on the Sunshine Coast dependent on the  mills directly and indirectly for  their daily bread also goes on  and on almost indefinitely.  Then there are all the forest industry investors who depend on  pulp and paper products for  their livelihood.  All this is only the tip of the  iceberg, insofar as it is a con  sideration of all the complications and ramifications that  would be involved if the mills  were simply shut down. If they  can't be shut down then the  mills must all be made to immediately change their procedures lo eliminate pollution,  you say. But how is that to be  done?  Some will willingly and  quickly make the necessary  changes. Others will stall in  order to seek some economic  advantage, perhaps.  Yet others will have their  backs to the wall. They will be  forced to refuse for reasons of  economic survival.  Here are more and more  complications! Obviously this  isn't a simple matter simply  resolved.  Yet it musl be solved! Is it  worse to close the mills or to  allow the pollution to go on for  a time, or forever?  Is there any way to force an  end to such industrial pollution  while still maintaining our industrial society?  This complex matter is  something that isn't going to be  sorted out overnight. We,  therefore, could well all tear out  our hair and wish for a king  Solomon.  If we have no such king,  where is the wisdom going to be  found. The answer in our  democratic society is that that  wisdom is going to have to be  found, eventually and finally, in  the mind and hearl of each and  every caring citizen.  We are going to need a lot of  caring and wise, good citizens in  this situation.  Criticism uninformed  Facts on theatre project  by Iran Burnside  As treasurer of the Gibsons  Landing Theatre Projeel Society, I am absolutely amazed at  Ihe prcsumpluousness of people  who feel qualified to make  public statements as fact on the  financial undertakings and  status of the theatre projeel  without ever once having talked  lo anyone from Ihe project.  Mary Linda Dixon, who has  done paid work for the project  and whose mother is a former  director, certainly knew who to  talk to if she were at all interested in getting accurate information for her November 28  letter in The Press.  Having spoken to her about  it, she claims her letter 'asked  questions'. I have failed to find  a single question in it; only a  series of totally inaccurate and  highly questionable statements.  Ms Dixon is certainly entitled  to hold any opinion she wants;  what she cannot do is pass her  opinions off as fact.  FACT: The Theatre Project  Society has decided to proceed  in two stages because inflation is  constantly increasing the end  figure cost of a 300 seat theatre.  lt seems preferrable to build at  least part of it now to stabilize  costs.  It takes a lot of time, energy  and footwork to raise $1.25  million, and if we can obtain a  smaller amount and proceed to  build a 200 seat theatre in the  old firehall section, which  would ultimately become the  foyer of a larger theatre, then  we'll do so. We increased the  size from 150 to 200 seats when  cost analysis by the architect  and theatre consultant indicated  a 150 seat theatre could not be  self-supporting without expensive ticket prices, but at 200  seats was feasible.  However, we are continuing  to study costs, and if we must  again adjust the size to make it  more cost effective we will not  hesitate to do so. We are not inflexible, and do not see the virtue of sticking to a past decision  if new information shows a better path to follow.  FACT: Revised architectural  drawings were donated, and  contrary to Ms Dixon's  statements, no additional  brochures or promotional  materials have been 'produced  at great expense'. However, as  no public monies are involved  and these are the basic tools of  our fund-raising, I fail to see  how we could be faulted for doing so even if we did.  FACT: Detailed financial  statements were distributed to  everyone at our annual general  meeting on November 10.  Neither Ms Dixon nor Allan  Crane nor Jim McDowell nor  Darcy Burk attended.  Figures showed receipts, expenditures, actual cash on  hand, term deposits, seat sale  monies held in trust, and  pledges received from corporations. Ms Dixon may not believe  the written pledges of Canfor,  Oji Paper or B.C. Tel are as  valid as cash in the bank, but  both the provincial and federal  governments do.  An audit was performed on  our books for 1987, and will be  again for 1988. Why Ms Dixon  says the books are yet to be  open to public scrutiny is a  mystery.  FACT: The theatre project  did not ask for soil tests to be  done on the site, either at taxpayers' or their own expense.  Gibsons Council decided it  needed to know the condition of  the site to be able to determine  its suitability for the theatre or  any other use.  The theatre society has  always assumed such tests  would be part of its site  preparation expenses, has been  assured by its architect that any  water problems could be solved  for a price, and did not wish to  undertake major soil testing expenses if it could not raise  enough funds to subsequently  build the theatre. Nor did it  wish to dig holes in Holland  Park if construction wasn't to  proceed immediately.  The allocation of the Holland  Park site for the theatre project  has been "depriving the Town  of Gibsons of an alternative  source of revenue," states Ms  Dixon. "That's a fabrication,"  states Gibsons Planner Rob  Buchan.  Buchan has not received a  single proposal or application  for any other use of the site. It is  zoned 'Administration' and is  therefore unuseable for commercial ventures.  A request by the Maritime  Historical Society to use the old  firehall for meetings was turned  Please turn to page 19 Coast News, December 5,1988  Letters to the Editor  The golf club states expansion case  Editor:  Fifteen years ago, in March  1973, the Sunshine Coast Golf  and Counlry Club applied to  the provincial government to  lease 75 acres of Crown land in  District Lot 1506. Subsequently,  the regional district asked the  golf club lo withdraw its application so thai ihe regional  district could apply for the  whole of DL 1506��� 160 acres in  all. In Ihe spirii of cooperalion,  Ihe golf course withdrew its applicalion, thinking lhal in Ihe  future when course expansion  seemed timely, there would be  no problem accessing the land.  There seems to be a problem.  When Ihe regional dislricl  signed Iheir lease for DL 1506 in  1977, ii was for the purpose of  recreation in the Sunshine Coast  Regional Dislricl. The properly  was then named afler a  longtime resident of Roberls  Creek and a former regional  board director���Cliff Gilker.  Cliff Gilker Park never was,  and is nol now, a wilderness  park. Il was always been a  recreational park.  Remember when Ihe original  plan was to have a large complex centred here, complete with  arena, curling rink, swimming  pool, courts, playing fields, hiking trails and golf course. Unfortunately two referendums  were defeated, and what we  have now are bits and pieces of  recreational facilities, some of  which struggle io pay Iheir way.  The golf course has never been a  burden for the local lax payer.  Did you know thai over  10,000 rounds of golf were  played in Roberts Creek Ihis  year by lourists, visitors and  local non-member golfers? Add  to Ihis the rounds played by 600  adull members, 50 juniors and  20 junior-juniors, and you  reach a staggering total. Interestingly, Ihe majority of the  children who play are not sons  and daughters of members.  And, since the opening of the  golf course in 1969, between  100,000 and 200,000 rounds of  golf have been played by non-  members. This would seem to  be more thai jusi a small  specialized group.  Cliff Gilker Park is an area of  over 170 acres (another 10 lo 15  acres was added jusi recently).  Il would seem to me that in an  area of this size, with planning  and co-operation, all recreational needs could be met. both  for now and for the future.  The natural beauty of the  park is undeniable, but Ihe  groomed glassy slopes and  stands of trees of the golf  course, with the waler and  mountains in the distance are  beautiful as well. The waterfall  in the park and most of Ihe  paths and bridges are well below  the area thai the golf course  would require for expansion.  Many negative comments  have been printed regarding the  golf course and Cliff Gilker  Park. Can we not negotiate and  cooperate together? How about  some positive suggestions and  input? Why nol let your local  represenlalive to the regional  hoard know how you feel?  Hello?   Hello?   Is   anyone  there?

Editor:  There are a number of  residents living in Pender Harbour who are profoundly  distressed by the proposed subdivision of Pearson Island at the  entrance of our harbour into 12  lots.  This is a spectacular area of  the British Columbia Coast  whose natural beauty in a sense  belongs to all of us. We feel that  this large subdivision, if indeed  there has to be a subdivision,  would be extremely destructive  to the loveliness of our scenery  and to the delicate environment  associated with our islands and  their surroundings.

So  Promote it far and wide,  And advertise wilh pride -  The crowds will spill all  over the hill  On the world's most famous  slide.  (Music supplied on request.)  Margaret Jones  More on  Pearson  Island  Editor:  When the regional district  board is reviewing the proposed  subdivision of Pearson Island  near Pender Harbour, they  would do well to consider the  wisdom of the Island Trust in  establishing a minimum lot size  for such islands under its control.  James H. Tyner  Madeira Park, B.C.  whose only interest in our area  is to make money, we are also  opening every other island in  our vicinity to what has come to  be known as 'quick flip'  development.  Recent experiences with this  type of operator in our harbour  should have taught us a lesson.  Anyone who feels strongly  about halting this particular  rape of our gorgeous countryside should contact the  regional board immediately. 1  have just learned that the Pearson Island rezoning application  has already gone to second  reading.  I leave to the imagination of  the reader what kind of added  burden the servicing of these  islands with electricity, water,  school transportation, etc., will  have on us as taxpayers.

Most of those attending were opposed to an  already-deleted proposal for a  shoal lookout.  Jim Gurney, owner of a  downtown commercial property  and two other properties in the  town, offered what he termed  some criticism and comments.  His remarks mainly involved  possibilities for improvement of  the downtown business area.  Businessman Gurney said the  plan should provide the  downtown with enough room to  expand into a complete and  more viable commercial area.  He said the downtown still faces  a problem of opportunity for  growth because it doesn't yet  have enough retail space.  He said Marine Drive is prone to congestion, so commercial  development should be directed  more toward the south end next  to the main downtown. He also  Prime  RETAIL SPACE  available in  Sunnycrest Mall  500 sq. ft. to 1200 sq.ft.

Gurney said the downtown is  mainly a strip of 50 feet deep  buildings. The owners haven't  tried to develop their rear yards  for staff and other parking,  leaving the space to blackberries  and other growth.  He said parking in the rear  yards would at least solve some  of the downtown's parking problem.  Town Planner Rob Buchan  said the difficulty with Marine  Drive is that Ihe road is too  close to the water, creating  shallow lots.  One citizen suggested "there  should be a feasibility and cost  study of putting existing wiring  in the town underground and  having an underground wiring  policy from then on."  Planner Buchan said such a  study is already being done.  Citizens worried about the  Shoal Lookout idea told of problems existing with the vacant  lot which the town might have  considered acquiring for public  use. Access there to ihe bluff is  extremely dangerous since it's  only 20 feet wide, and would be  too costly for the town, they  said.  The residents complained the  place now, even without a formal lookout, is visited by hundreds of vehicles and people and  is a regular area for parties. If it  became officially a public area  there would be more trouble.  They complained of fires, injuries to people, rape, drug  dealing and wild parties. All this  was debilitating to the neighbouring properties, they said.  Fire engines and ambulances  have found it impossible to get  into the proposed lookout area  in emergencies.  Alderman Gerry Dixon,  chairman for the hearing, summed up the hearing at the closing by saying, "I know it's going to be a good plan for the  future of the community."  By way of an introduction at  the opening of the hearing,  Town Planner Buchan said the  town is on the brink of a major  resurgence of development due  lo expansion of the pulp and  paper mill at Port Mellon. During ihis transition period ihere Is  a need for aesthetic control.  "We had some recent near  misses (of development) and  cannol continue to rely on good  fortune," he said, adding thai  Ihe aim of the plan is to retain  the present desirable lifestyle  while allowing for compatible  growth.  The controls should nol be a  deterrent to development, bul  control heights and preserve  views. The plan should blend  the aspirations both of the community and of the dveloper so  the criteria of new building  shouldn't just be maximum use  of the land," he said.  "We stand on the brink of  much new development," he  said, listing a 38-unit reliremenl  village, 65 lots on Shaw Road  and further application for approval of 40 lots as evidence of  new development activity in the  town.

The  company has agreed io finance  a project which will see 250  teens from the Sunshine Coast  attend a concert by the Vancouver Sympony Orchestra.  Co-presidents of the GYC,  Kyle Quarry and Cheryl Covey  were ecstatic last week when  they talked to the Coast News.  This projeel is the largest that  Ihe group has laken on since  they began meeting last spring.  Arrangements have been made  to purchase five blocks of 50  tickets for concerts between  January 21 and May 23, 1989.  While there is no official  membership lisl for the GYC, a  group of 15 teenagers comprise  a core lhal have been working  logelher on a variety of things.  This core group will be attending the concerts and the other  235 youths will be selected from  all over the Sunshine Coast.  Covey told the Coast News  that the actual decision as to  who will go will be left up to  principals, "...but we set the  criteria. We want kids from  Dogpatch to Egmont, a good  mix of different kids of youth  who wouldn't normally gel to  go to the symphony."  The GYC also recently sponsored a trip lo UBC for 25  students where the kids went to  the Museum of Anthropology  and generally got an idea of the  wide variety of possibilities  available through a university.  The group's motto is unof  ficial: "Ifanyihing'sgoingtobe  done for kids, it has to be done  by kids." Although the council  has two adult consultants, a  legal necessity for a lot of things  involving fund-raising, the  choosing of projects, the planning and the work is all done by  the teens themselves.  Last summer, the youth  council was heavily involved  with Sea Cavalcade. They ran  two concession booths, one at  the wharf and one at the curling  rink, managed traffic control  for the parade and provided  labour and control for the Sea  Cavalcade youth dance.  On an on-going basis, the  group sponsors floor hockey for  bovs between 12 and 14 years  old.  Asked aboul iheir thoughts  on a drop-in centre for teens in  Gibsons, bolh Covey and  Quarry said, "I just don't think  il would work." Plans that have  been tossed around are too  elaborate, Covey said, and  Quarry agreed, "I don't think  the kids would go."  The co-presidents suggested  all that is really wanled by teens  in Gibsons is, 'a place to hang  out'. Somewhere where they  can drop in and be welcomed  while they have a cup of coffee  and a cigarette, where they can  talk to friends and meet before  heading off to an event. It's the  events lhat the GYC hopes to  provide.  There is some talk of arranging a monthly dance starting  sometime nexl year. In the  meantime, Ihe group will be arranging the lasl minute details  for a trip lo the symphony.  George    in    Gibsons  Kyle Quarry and Cheryl Covey, co-presidents of the Gibsons Vouth  Council, were jubilant last week to learn that Howe Sound Pulp  and Paper has agreed to help finance a trip for <150 teens to attend a  Vancouver Symphony Orchestra concert. ���Penny Fuller photo  Former teacher dies in South Seas  by George Cooper, 886-8520  On Saturday last Helen Sallis  and her sons and daughters held  their own special memorial for  husband and "father, Norman,  who died November 16,  "Son James chartered a  sailboat for the family to have  our own memorial out on Howe  Sound," Helen told me, "where  we scattered his ashes on the  open water.  "Even though Norman had  gone his own way some years  ago, we always continued to  gather as a family at Christmas  and at birthdays, like Norman's  60th two years ago.  "Last July all of us except  Steve went on a sailing excursion for the day out on Georgia  Strait. And thai was our last  time together as a family.  "Now at that quiet family  memorial on Howe Sound I  remembered him as my husband and was able to cherish the  good memories I have of him."  Helen lives in Gibsons, and  has been an accountant for the  past 10 years in an accounting  firm in Sechelt. Helen said she  finished her secondary schooling along with her children and  later did substitute work at  Elphinstone.  Norman Sallis was born in  Long Beach, California,  January 14, 1926, of British  parents. They came to live in  Vancouver where Norman went  to school.  Norman had applied for a  British passport which would  make him a citizen of three  countries. But the passport arrived only recently while he was  still travelling in New Zealand  and the South Pacific. So he did  not learn of this additional  status before he died.  After war service in 1943 lo  1945 when he was still in his  teens, and for five years afler  that in the Navy where he  qualified as a steam engineer  class 111, Norman worked as a  janitor in Vancouver schools to  support his family.  While at that job he felt  teaching school was a challenge  he could well take on. In 1960  he enrolled in a special course in  UBC���30 credits in one calendar year���and began teaching  in Industrial education. Also  from time to time in academic  subjects.  "Norman completed a degree  through summer schools with  majors in English and in history  as well as in shopwork," Helen '  said, "and taught in Sicamous  for a year, Salmon Arm for  four, and Ladner for one before  coming to the Sunshine Coast in  1968."  Before he left the school  district here, Norman had gone  his own way. After leaving the  district he travelled and lived for  a few years in New Zealand,  Thailand, and other places in  ihe South Pacific.  NORMAN SALLIS  On his return to B.C. Norman decided to qualify as an  electrician���he had worked for  Don Hauka previously in summer vacations���and attended  Vancouver Vocational Institute  for the year-long course.  In 1982 his answer to an  advertisement got him a job as  electrician in the federal government's departmenl of Energy  and Conservation where he was  employed until he retired in  1987.  During recent travels again in  the South Pacific he had visited .  the grave of Robert Louis  Stevenson in Western Samoa.'  The climb to the hilltop site a second time to photograph the  grave marker which has the  Stevenson poem 'Requiem' inscribed on it brought on severe  chest pains, and on the third  day after the first climb up the  hill, Norman died in the  hospital in Appia.  At the remembrance gathering held in Vancouver  November 19, Ted Mills of  Vancouver recited Requiem as a  touching memorial, too, for  Norman Sallis.  "Home is the sailor, home  from the sea."

Gardening notes  by Marguerite  We can all probably find a  job we can do in the garden if  time and weather permits, and  the effort will be worthwhile  and satisfying. Whatever the  layout of your garden, you're  the boss.  Sometimes changes have to  be made, with the relocation of  plants or shrubs,  to correct  mistakes. If you have not yet  sent away for the new  catalogues of favourite  seedsman, do so withoul delay.

Cats and kittens are  being abandoned more readily  and there have been more  reports of dogs being mistreated. She has some advice.  Save yourself some heartbreak,  don't let your pets have litters.  Don't give a puppy or a kitten  as a gift for Christmas unless  you know for sure that the person really wants a pet and is  willing to invest the time and  energy required to looking after  it. It also costs a lot to feed a pet  these days.  Also, you should know that  all dogs, six months and over,  now require a licence, even in  Sechelt.

ON PARENTING  I recently overheard a parenl  vainly trying lo call her  wayward youngsler back lo Ihe  line up where Mom slood to pay  for her purchases. Then, when  the lol began lo finger candy,  ihis Mom said to another in  line, "Well if ihe owners persist  in leaving lhal stuff within reach  of children, it's iheir lough  luck."  The oilier lady agreed and  said things hadn't changed in 25  years.  I was appalled at the parental  altitude.   Firstly,   why   are  children allowed to stray from  Mom's side? Should they not be  disciplined to stay close because  of dangers to themselves?  Again, why are some allowed  candy just because it's within  Iheir sight and reach? Is stealing  not a sin anymore?  If I visited their homes would  I be allowed to take anything I  wanted within my reach?  The bottom line is, what are  these children going io become?  Are the parenls depending on  the school system to put iheir  child on the straight and narrow?  Not fair to the schools, the  children ihemselves or the  public who have to put up with  this behaviour now and in the  future.

The inlormalion referred to  the Sunshine Coast, bul it seemed to zero in on Pender Harbour, where the community is  often unanamously unsuppor-  live of itself,  All our merchants and bus-  inesspeople are loyal io the  community, and we should sup  port them jusi as loyally, particularly al Christmastime,  when they go lo extra work for  your convenience and enjoyment, and when ihey donate  (probably a lot more lhan you  do) lo every Pender Harbour  charity thai approaches ihem.  1 can hear you protesting,  "It's cheaper lo shop elsewhere,  and I'll gel a better selection  elsewhere."  Consider whal it costs you in  transportation lo shop elsewhere, ihe lime spenl travelling,  and Ihe impulse buying you do,  ihen do a price comparison.  You'll find many ilems on sale  righl here in Pender Harbour  for less than other places, and  you'll realize lhal the few pennies lhat you might save on  some ilems are hardly worth the  cosl of Ihe trip.  Selection? Granted, you can't  buy designer jeans in Pender  Harbour, bul il' you bought  more here, the merchants would  slock more lor you lo choose  from, and if business improved  in general, more stores would  open.  Think aboul it. The whole  thing works in a spiral, but  you've got lo be the one to start  thai upward motion.  ELECTION RESULTS  Following are Ihe results of  the Clinic Auxiliary November  elections:  Ruth Kobus, president; Peg  Riley, first vice-president;  Maureen Griffith, second vice-  president; Vi Berntzen,  treasurer; and Joan Murphy,  secretary.

With its  grand opening celebration on  Friday night, the Sea Ranch  established itself as a part of  Pender Harbour, and as a great  new dining spot on the Sunshine  Coast.  The Carrie Fowler Trio (Carrie and Les Fowler and Merv  Charboneau) impressed guests  with an evening of smooth, laid-  back jazz of the highest quality,  and I'm sure that everyone there  looks forward to this new  group's next performance.  The atmosphere was friendly  and casual, and everyone enjoyed an attractive, tasty cold-  plate buffet, delicious dinner  entrees, and, for dessert, a  variety of sweets and treats.  Congratulations and welcome, Denny, June, and Sea  Ranch staff, and thanks for a  fine evening of dining and  entertainment.  Denny and June thank  everyone who supported them  on their grand opening, especially their friends at the Pender  Harbour Fish Store and Gib  and Liz of the Ruby Lake  Resort.  ���Mitt**.

Our  Christmas dinner is scheduled  for the 8th and by the time the  22nd rolls around most people  have more on their minds than  bingo. In any case, Helen  Neelands advises that the next  bingo afternoon will be on  January 12. Hopefully, with  year end festivities behind the  members, there will be a good  turnout at that time. The more  the merrier and the larger the  prizes.  NAME TAGS  After a few years membership in our branch, most of us  know our fellow members, or a  good percentage of them by  name. This is, of course taken  for granted, but what of the  new members? Many of us have  name tags and it may be an idea  to wear them, at least on  meeting day to make our new  members more familiar with  some of the 'old timers'. This  was a request incidentally, from  a new member.  BAZAAR  As it happened, Saturday,  November 26 was a fine day to  be out and about and it was also  our Christmas Bazaar Day. We  were favoured with an excellent  turnout for an extremely busy  and profitable afternoon. On  Friday night the great variety of  sale items that were accumulated over the past months  were set out in readiness for the  crowd that was expected and we  were not disappointed.  Although it is impossible to  individually thank those  members who not only worked  at home, but faithfully attended  the Thursday morning craft sessions, there must always be a  guiding hand or two to finalize  such an event. Many hours were  spent by Virginia Ekdahl and  Tillie White to whom special  thanks are in order.  To all others, thank you! 1  would be remiss in not mentioning the fact that this year our  Wednesday   afternoon   artists  Pulp mill  reaction  Continued from page 1  "There are other steps.  We've changed the defoamer  base already. That reduces  chlorinated dioxins and  furans," he said.  The mills are no longer buying and using what are called  PCP chips. That eliminates  another of the very bad dioxins.  Hughes pointed out to this  newspaper that the dioxins  causing the problem aren't  originally generated by the pulp  making process.

The closure of prawn, shrimp  and crab fishing in the immediate vicinity of the Port  Mellon and Woodfibre pulp  mills on Howe Sound was announced November 30 by Tom  Siddon, the federal minister of  fisheries and oceans.  The closure was ordered due  to the discovery of toxic dioxins  in these shellfish in amounts  dangerous to health if they are  eaten repeatedly.  Fisheries Minister Siddon  also ordered a similar closing of  the crab fishery near the Prince  Rupert pulp mill.  The next day Bruce Strachan,  the British Columbia environment minister, announced the  provincial government will impose stringent new regulations  affecting the discharge of dioxins by pulp mills.  "We are drafting new regula  tions that will carry severe  penalties for violators, including  heavy fines and even closure for  those mills that don't  conform," said Strachan.  But on the same day the New  Democrat Opposition's environment critic John Cash-  more was issuing a press statement. He alleged the provincial  action was long overdue and  was in marked contrast to the  Socreds' abysmal track record  of enforcing the pollution laws  B.C. already had.  "It is not good enough for  the minister to assure us that he  will crack down when there is  ample evidence to show that his  ministry has failed time and  time again to properly monitor  pollution levels, let alone prosecute offenders," said  Cashmore (NDP-Maillardville-  Coquitlam).  For health reasons due to the toxic dioxin pollution the federal  department of fisheries December 1 banned all shrimp, prawn and  crab fishing in Howe Sound management sub-areas 28-3, 28-4 and  28-5 as shown on the map above.  Details on dioxin  in Howe Sound  "A preliminary sampling and  analytical program was carried  out from January to April 1988  by the Department of Fisheries  and Oceans (DFO) and the  Department of Environment  (DOE) to determine the levels of  chlorinated dibenzodioxin  (CDD) and dibenzofuran  (DDF) isomers in 51 samples of  fish and shellfish collected in the  vicinity of 14 of the 47 Canadian pulp mills employing the  chlorine bleaching process,"  said the federal fisheries statement on Howe Sound fishery  closings November 30.  "Although the results of this  preliminary survey were judged  by the Department of National  Health and Welfare (NHW) not  to pose a health hazard to consumers, the Ministers of  Fisheries and Oceans, DOE and  NHW announced, on May 16,  that the program would be extended to include all Canadian  pulp and paper mills using the  chlorine bleaching process.  "Priority was given to the  collection and analysis of 52  samples from three mill sites  (Port Mellon, Woodfibre, and  Prince Rupert) where indications of higher levels of dioxin  and furans had been detected.  Collection and analysis of fish  and shellfish samples from the  remaining 34 mill sites in  Canada is ongoing. Thirty-nine  of the 93 planned samples from  B.C. pulp mills have been collected and analysis is ongoing.  "The analyses for dioxin in  fish and shellfish are extremely  complex, and time consuming,  and require specially trained  personnel and unique instrumentation. DFO has one  facility capable of performing  the analysis. Health and  Welfare, and Department of  Environment laboratories are  also working on the analysis.  "All federal laboratores  equipped to analyse for dioxin  and furan in fish have participated in the priority three  mill program. To increase the  federal government's ability to  provide the required information on dioxin and furan in  fishery resources, the  capabilities of private  laboratories were evaluated and  contracts issued to accelerate  the delivery of the progam  results.  "A rigorous inter-laboratory  calibration has been conducted  to ensure that results obtained  from federal and private  laboratories are reliable and  compatible," said the federal  fisheries statement.  a*  FAMILY BULK FOODS &  DELI  k ruuus &  ESSEN Q\  For Your Convenience  Open Sunday,  Dec. 11 and 18  between 12:00 - 4:00  _at>< tt�� \ New Gift Items From  Q cJ^s^**3^ West Germany  ORDER NOW  For yaw Christmas entertaining  Party Trays   .

Given these products are normally sold fresh, it is unlikely  that any prawns, shrimps, and  crabs from these areas are currently on the market," said the  federal fisheries announcement.  "The DFO decision to implement the closure immediately  followed advice from the  Health Protection Branch cf  Health and Welfare Canada late  Tuesday. This advice was based  on shellfish samples collected  near the three mills this past  summer and fall by DFO. After  extensive analysis by four  government laboratories Ihe  data was provided to Health  and Welfare Canada for assessment.  "We have taken swift action  where the results clearly indicated to Health Protection officials that these species near the  three pulp mills should not be  eaten," Siddon said.  "The Health Protection  Branch has advised that crabs,  prawns and shrimps from  Woodfibre and Port Mellon  and crabs from Prince Rupert  could pose a health hazard if  eaten frequently. While there is  no health hazard if these species  are eaten only occasionally,  there is concern that frequent  consumption could result in  adverse health effects," said the  federal government statement.  "This advice is based on a  health assessment process which  takes into account the number  of samples, the full range of  dioxin and furan compounds  found, the toxicity of each compound, and the amount of fish  that could be consumed by an  individual.  "A comprehensive national  sampling and monitoring program was put in place to test  fish and shellfish from the 47  sites where dioxins occur as a  result of the chlorine bleaching  process used at pulp and paper  mills. Based on results from the  preliminary analysis last May,  these three B.C. pulp mills were  given priority for detailed  testing by DFO. The sampling  program for other pulp mill  sites continues.  "Mr. Siddon cautioned that  more monitoring information  will be necessary to fully  understand the extent of the  dioxin situation but that the  need to protect the health of  Canadians was paramount,"  said the government statement  from Vancouver.  "The three pulp mills in question are being notified immediately to provide information under the Canadian Environmental Protection Act  needed to reduce or eliminate  dioxin and related compounds  in their manufacturing processes. Within the next week, all  other mills in Canada using  chlorine in the bleaching process  will also be notified to provide  similar information.  "Based on ihis informaiion  and following consultation required under the Canadian Environmental Protection Act,  regulations will be developed to  ensure lhat ihese mills meet stringent environmenlal standards  in their manufacturing processes.

Municipal Affairs  Minister Rila Johnson has asked the Sechell Indian Governmenl Dislricl, ihe Sechell  Dislricl and the Sunshine Coasl  Regional District to settle their  own dispute over the Sechelt  area sewerage system.  The SCRD board December  1 agreed to call a meeting of two  representatives each from each  local government in an attempt  lo sel lie Ihe matter by February  28 as requested by the minister.  Bul the regional board is asking  the minister lo provide a staff  representative to join in the  meeling.  The new Sechelt District was  moving lo take over the system  as an agreed aftermath of  restructuring. But at Ihe last  minute the Sechelt Indian  Governmenl District came oul  in opposition.  After receiving information  from the SCRD, Municipal Affairs Minister Johnston wrote  she agreed thai in particular the  interests of the Sechelt Indian  Government District needed to  be considered.  Asking that the SCRD  negotiate in good faith with the  two Sechelt districts to achieve a  reasonable solution to the problem, Johnston wrote as  follows:  "I fully appreciate and accept  the District of Sechelt's interest  in greater control over the  sewerage   system   within   its  a proposal lhal the collection  syslem be lurned over lo the  dislrict with the treatment  syslem remaining in Ihe hands  of the regional district. While  this does not conform lo the  municipality's proposal ii does  recognize that Ihe municipality  has a legitimate concern.  "I also understand thai you  have met with the executive of  the ministry and discussed  possibilities of restructuring the  sewerage function such thai the  two primary beneficiaries of Ihe  Sechelt system���the District of  Sechelt and ihe Sechelt Indian  Governmenl District���share Ihe  control of the treatment system.  I have also been in communication with the mayor of Sechell  who advises me that, irrespective of his desire for local control, he recognizes the benefits  of regional district administration and the desirability of  maintaining continuity.  "Given all of the above I  have concluded thai Ihere is  merit in further discussions between the three affected parties.  I recommend that a negotiating  committee be established comprised of iwo elected officials  from the District of Sechelt, two  from the Indian Government  District and two from the  regional dislrict. Given Ihe need  for each jurisdiction io deal  with the budgetary implical-  lions, I would recommend lhat  these discussions be concluded  boundaries.

She pointed out  that the storage space that  Sechelt council had promised  the library had never been  found and the handicap washroom at the library is still filled  with books.  Bob Wilson said he appreciated Mrs. Fleming's frustration, but added that council has  acted quickly in addressing the  funding problem, is committed  to continuing to improve that  situation and is also committed  to providing enlarged facilities  for the library in the future.  The provincial representatives told the meeting that  there is new funding available  which may be used  for the  building of a new library, and  the library association was urged to consult Mr. Looney about  possible funding options.  The meeting concluded  without any major new revelations taking place. The SCRD  hopes to have the letters patent  in place by the spring in order to  hold a March referendum in  Areas 'E' and 'F'. Should the  referendum pass the board  could then proceed to allocate  some of their yearly budget to  the Gibsons Library.  The municipal district of  Sechelt appears to be staying  out of any regional agreement  at this time. Before ending the  meeting, Alderman Kolibas  apologized for any delay which  Sechelt's actions may have caused in the funding process.

This plan is part of the  economic strategy for the Vancouver Island/Powell River/  Sunshine Coast region which  was prepared by the Association  of Vancouver Island Municipalities.  The SCRD board wants  Highways Minister Neil Vant to  visit the Sunshine Coast so they  can lake him out and show him  the needs of the area for  highway improvements. Board  members agreed the minister  should be telephoned to follow  up a November 28 letter asking  for him to visit.  Since the Vancouver Island  highway construction program  announcement included reference to the wishes of the mayors  along the involved routes,  SCRD members agreed the  Sunshine Coast mayors and  chief should also be invited out  to any meeting with Highways  Minister Vant.  The SCRD members were  upset that they and their staff  had worked through the exercise of determining and setting  out the region's highway needs  as required by provincial  government staff, only to be  completely left out of the long  lerm highways plan and have all  the region's work go for  nothing.  The provincial plan was  released so soon after the  region's submission went in that  it was hardly possible the region  plan could've been considered,  it was said. Board members also  said other regions of the province are equally angry about  being left out of the provincial  highways work plans.  SCRD members agreed further action on the matter should  be laken by the next board  meeting if the highways minister  hasn't agreed to meet with ihem  and review Sunshine Coasl  highways needs.

"Only a study"  Rural areas reassured  on restructuring  by Rose Nicholson  Residents of Hopkins Landing, Granthams Landing,  Soames Poinl, Williamsons  Landing and Areas E and F  have been reassured by Chairman Jane Sorko of the Restructuring Committee thai ihey are  not aboul to be laken over by  the Town of Gibsons in the currenl restructuring proposals.  At a meeling of Ihe eommitlee last Monday night, delegations were received from  Hopkins Landing and Soames  Poinl.  These delegations expressed  their grave concerns over such  questions as loss of community  identity, takeover of community water systems, increased  taxes, loss of communily held  property and possible security  concerns if community recreation areas were lo be absorbed  into a greater park syslem.  Donald Hopkins, spokesman  for the Hopkins Landing group,  is the grandson of the founder  of thai community. He outlined  for the committee the history of  the area.  His grandfather acquired  originally District Lot 911 in  1907. Over the years a large part  of Ihe properly was subdivided  and sold, but the identity of the  community has always remained intact.  A waterfront walkway and  an effective water system are enjoyed and used by all the  residents of the 130 homes in  the area. These systems are  maintained by a great deal of  volunteer effort and considerable financial investment.  At present Hopkins Landing  is organised as Ihe Hopkins  Landing Waterworks Improvement District, which is the  lowesl rung on ihe ladder of  government bodies in Ihe province.  "Our community" said  Hopkins, "is opposed to  restructuring. We don'l see  what ihe benefits would be. We  have a good waler system. We  have a good community. Why  change it?"  Soames Point residents expressed similar concerns.  Spokesman Eric Cardinall,  Chairman of Ihe Soames Poinl  Waterworks Improvement Dislrict, described Iheir system as  adequate, with the highest  quality of water and no restrictions as to its use. He told the  committee thai ihe Soames  water system is connected to the  Hopkins syslem in a mutual aid  agreement in the event of pump  failures.  Tom Moore, the consultant  retained by ihe committee, explained that there were several  options available in the event  thai restructuring plans went  through.  Designated specific areas  could be formed, whereby each  area could retain jurisdiction  over their own affairs. Moore  also pointed out thai an enlarged area such as a Dislrict  Municipality had a great deal  more power when dealing with  federal and provincial authorities. He wenl on lo say lhal Ihe  present Town of Gibsons would  no longer exist as an entity. If  restructuring went Ihrough, Ihe  new   entity   would   be   an  amalgamation of the presen:  lown and the neighbouring  communities, wiih all areas carrying equal weight.  Moore warned residents that,  in view of recent decisions made  al the provincial level, laxes  were likely lo go up, regardless  of the status of the individual  communities.  Moore presented to the committee an interim report on the  restructuring process, but the  committee reserved comment  until it has had time to study it.  Chairman Sorko summed up  by explaining that the Restructuring Committee is charged  with the responsibility of making only recommendations to  the Town of Gibsons and the  Ministry of Municipal Affairs.  She stressed that the committee  was a long way from deciding  what their recommendations  would be.  "We're here" she said, "to  see what the best possible solution would be from your  perspective. In my conversations with the Minister of  Municipal Affairs, Mrs. Rila  Johnston, she said nothing  would be imposed on the  residents of these communities.  A decision would have to be to  the advantage of the whole  community. There's no way  that this committee is going to  rush anything through."  Mayor Diane Strom agreed.  "This is a study" she said, "to  see if a District Municipality  would work without having  problems, not to alienate the  residents   of   the   different 14.

Recruitment posters are  everywhere, including the  famous painting of a stern-  faced Uncle Sam aiming an accusatory finger at potential  shirkers. Khaki-clad, putteed  doughboys arc the currenl national heroes and Tin Pan Alley  songsmilhs are working overtime, grinding out such patriotic  ditties as 'Tramp, Tramp,  Tramp' and 'Over There'.  The Isolationist Lobby in  Washington has losl its bid to  keep the United Stales out of  the European conflict. The  sinking of the l.usilunia had  given President Wilson all the  congressional clout he needed.  Now the drums beal and the  factories hum as America  throws its massive resources  behind the Allied cause.  But in the shadowy precincts  of the underworld it is strickly  'business as usual'. Crime has  no country.  Herb has entered a strange  new world more thrilling than  any war. It is a world with its  own codes and customs, a  world of danger and dark excitement.  The Dunn and Fraser job,  though no criminal masterstroke, was an eminently successful operation. Herb is particularly gratified when the  newspaper reports label it 'a  professional job'.  However he realizes thai in  truth he is far from a professional. He still has plenty to  learn.  He lakes lo Ihe road and  visits several eastern cities. Pos  ing as a wealthy merchant he  makes the rounds of the safe  dealers, claiming to be in the  market for vaults and boxes.  The salesmen, eager lo fill his  needs trot out their wares, ply  him with brochures explaining  the construction details, and  even cite each safe's 'burglar-  proof rating, the estimated  time il would take an expert  criminal to crack it. Herb  receives ihis wealth of vital  statistics politely and promises  lhal he will be in touch.  He spends two weeks in  Washington, D.C. Now posing  as a writer researching a book  he sills ihrough the files of the  Bureau Of Standards and checks  every pamphlet they have on explosives, sleel, concrele and  related items. The bureau ex-  perls innocently provide additional information.  Herb fills up two notebooks  and subsequently compiles a  manual, for his mob's use only,  on the whole subject of gaining  illicit entry to safes and vaults.  He has discarded one Bible but  he has written another.  His research completed, Herb  returns to Detroit. The gang are  primed for more action. Cox  has lined up several new applicants.  Herb's firsl thinking in the  malter of hiring henchmen had  been to insist that they be  anonymous figures without  records and not known to Ihe  police. Cox and the others soon  disabused him of this naive and  unrealistic stipulation.  "You'll be eliminating all the  best men in the business," Cox  argued. "A lot of the top guys  have taken falls but some of  Ihem, we're going to need.  They've gol the'know-how and  Ihe connections."  Lou and Doc Redding agreed  and Herb, with some reluctance, went along with the majority.        To be continued...  New YeaTs Tickets   ...

FOLK FURNITURE SHOW  On exhibition at the Arts  Centre is a fascinating collection  of furnishings. 'Heart and Soul  - Western Canadian Folk Furniture' is a show of furniture of  a completely different sort from  the usual French and British inspired varnished hardwood antiques. These pieces are made of  pine, spruce and boxwood and  are painted. They were hand  made either at home or by  itinerant artisans and were owned by common people.  Included in the show are  cross-stitched samplers, hand-  woven rugs, spinning wheels  and other items of home furnishings from people who were  self-sufficient, practical and  hard working. Produced mostly  in the Hutterite, Mennonite and  Ukranian cultural traditions,  these furnishings and artifacts  prpvide an interesting look into  a way of life with very strong  rools in Eastern European nations.  Collector and dealer Jim  Shockey will speak aboul the  furniture and these cultures on  December 13 at 8 pm at the Arts  Centre, admission is $1 at the  door. Due to the expense of  mounting this unusual exhibition there will also be a $1 admission charge to view the  show, which entitles one to  return as often as desired until  the show closes on December  18.

I keep being asked lately, and each person has a varying degree of irritation in their  voice. 1988 has not been an easy  year for a lot of people, and  with the arrival of December,  many are feeling that enough is  enough.  A couple of major influences  have been affecting people this  year, and while some are almost  over, others will continue to  cause upheaval. On a planetary  level, Saturn and Uranus have  been waltzing together all year.  (Saturn representing the struc-  ; tures and restrictions in our lives  and Uranus representing the  urge to break free). This has  been going on all year and people have been struggling with  the need to change things and  all the restrictions that impede  change.  Yes. That is almost over. By  the end of this month that duo  will have separated enough that  the issues will come up separately, which makes things a lot less  confusing. As Saturn, which is a  faster moving planet than  Uranus, moves through the first  half of Capricorn next year,  people born between December  22 and January 6, June 22 and  July 7, March 21 and April 5,  and September 23 and October  9, will find themselves facing  the restrictions in their lives.  Things may seem to get very  tight and the feeling of  claustrophobia could get to  you. However, you'll be relieved to know that the next years,  1990 and 1991, will offer you  the opportunities to break free  of those restrictions. Just do  whatever you've got to do to get  by. Don't over-react. Handle  each obstacle with integrity. It  will be a great year for learning  self-discipline.  The other major factor contributing to general upheaval is  the harmonic convergence that  happened in August 1987. According to people who have  studied these things, that marked the commencement of a five  Bake sale  winners  Winners for Elphinstone  Concert Band Bake Sale held in  the mall, November 26 were:  First Prize, food hamper,  Dorothy Hurren; second prize,  blueberry cheesecake, Mary  Puchalski; third prize,  decorated cake, Irene Wood;  fourth prize, decorated cake,  Mrs. A.

It  seems as if, on a spiritual level,  we all got a major dose of some  sort of psychic laxative, and all  the 'excrement' in people's  psyches is being released.  Energy influxes on the 15th day  of February, May, August and  November seem to increase the  agitation and it's important to  look at what issues come to the  surface just after those times.  You may see a recurring  theme. If so, these are things  that you need to find a way to  handle. Something that you're  doing may not be the most appropriate to your own spiritual  development, and it's almost as  if the same issue, in various  disguises will confront you  again and again until you find a  way to react that is beneficial to  your growth.  Hang in there, only 44 more  months of this purification  period to go. And if it starts to  get you down, just think about  how much better you feel when  you've been constipated and  your system finally clears itself.  By  August   1992,   you'll   be  floating.

On the run and needing a quick lunch to  fuel me for the rest of the day, I opted into the Cedars for a  quick bite, thinking in terms of a bowl of soup or a sandwich.  Upon asking the waitress' advice on what I could get that  would be tasty but quick, she pointed to a buffet at the side,  'The Carvery' where a delightful spread of baked ham,  potatoes, salad and melon slices were laid out ready to be  consumed.  I loaded up my plate and was told by the same friendly  waitress that this 'banquet on the run' is available every day  between 11:30 am and 2 pm. Some days there is roast beef,  on others roast pork is featured. I had hit the baked ham day.  My partner joined me for lunch, but being in less of a  hurry, opted for a selection from the lunch menu. What a  choice! In addition to the usual variety of sandwiches, soups  and salads, there are such diverse dishes offered as calamari,  souvlaki or tortellini padano.  He chose the famous Cedars Burger, an option that provides the main meal for a day. When the burger arrived, I had  serious doubts about whether or not he'd be able to fit it into  his mouth. The ground beef pattie was topped with bacon,  mushrooms, tomato, onion, lettuce and real Cheddar cheese.  I wasn't able to stick around to see whether or not he could  actually finish the burger and the large helping of french fries,  but he later reported that he's eaten every delicious bite.  In the future, I intend to make the Cedars a regular lunch  stop, whether for a quick bite on the run, or a leisurely meal.  The quality can't be beaten.

Figure skating numbers up  by Penny Fuller  A few years ago, the membership of the Sunshine Coasl  Figure Skating Club was down  to 55. But in the last three years,  through the commitmenl and  hard work of parents, the  membership has climbed to 155.  The club now has five professional coaches, ll offers classes  to people of all ages with a wide  variety of skaling abilities.  Many great Canadian skaters  began al the age of three of  four. Barbara Ann Scott,  Elizabeth Manley and Karen  Magnussen, lo name a few. At  the Sunshine Coast arena every  Monday and Saturday, potential stars of the future struggle  to learn the basics in the 'Tiny  Tot' classes for Ihree to five-  year-olds.  Having mastered the ability  to stay upright on Ihe slippery  surface, at five years old (and  up) they can join the Can-Skate  Juniors classes. This takes  beginners and teaches them the  basics for Can-Skate levels of  figure skating.  This training involves passing  a series of competence levels  recognized by acquiring eight  badges. Having reached that  level, the skaters enter a 'pre-  preliminary'   program.    It  prepares them for the higher  levels of accomplishment  leading lo compelitive skating.  The categories for senior  skaters are complex. There are  three separate categories,  figures, free skate and dance.  Within each of Ihose categories  are degrees of competence.  On November 26, several  members of the Sunshine Coast  club travelled to Powell River to  test for various levels and all  successfully passed.  The club is supported by class  fees, which are kept low in  order to permit as many people  as possible lo participate. There  are also fundraising activities  throughout Ihe year.  A skale-a-thon on November  10 brought in $600. The club  sells pizzas and t-shirts at  various limes to add to the bank  account  The major fund-raiser each  year is the winter carnival, held  in March.  Al Ihis lime the skaters have  ihe opportunity to dress up in  costumes and show off what  they've learned over the winter.  Last year Ihe carnival broughl  in about $2500.  It is estimated that around  700 people attended the two  performances.  The fall season of classes is  We Still Hake  House  Cans.

Gwen  Robertson thinks it's time to  give local recreation a flight  plan and a motor.  So she called a meeting the  evening of November 16 to try  to start a recreation association.  The town council has no recreation committee.  Four other people turned  out!  But she's not discouraged.  She has the needed six signatures for the articles of incorporation for the Gibsons and  District Recreation Association.  "The Sunshine Coast has  been studied to death on recreation. What we need is some action," says the verteran founder  and secretary of the Gibsons  Landing Heritage Society,  former chairperson and long  time volunteer in the Gibsons  Sea Cavalcade, volunteer and  hard worker in other local  organizations and worthwhile  community service efforts.  "If we have an association  with members, we can draw  volunteers, even once each a  month, to supervise various activities until we get a recreation  director." says Robertson.  "Here in Gibsons things get  done, like building facilities.  Then there's nothing permanent  to keep things going. That's  what I think a permanent  association could do.  GWEN ROBERTSON  "The organization could  become an appointed committee of town council, if it doesn't  work as an independent association. There has to be a formal  legal body to be able to receive  available grants. We need  money to have a year-round coordinator," she says.  All that's needed here to have  a good recreation system for  everyone is to make use of the  available facilities and schools.  Either there has to be a dispensation from the school board  for much cheaper recreation use  of school facilities, or else there  Don't Forget the  Diver on your List  tt=a=g=IEtt3til-tt-ar��-t>^^  Scuba Wish List  Regulator  ���  \  Octopus  ���  Gauges  D  Tank  ���  Compass  D  Watch  ���  Wet Suit  ���  t  Dry Suit  ���  v  B.C.D.  ���  mk  Fins  ���  wk  Mask  ���  mm  Snorkle  ���  W  Knife  ���  Wk  Gear Bag  ���  ^uP  Goody Bag  ���  lir  Spear  ���  1  Spare Parts Kit  ���  \  Dive Flag  ���  Specialty Course  D  \  ��� Open Water Course  ��� Advanced Open Water Course  ] Rescue Course  ��� Dive Master Course  S SEASPORT SCUBA M  ADVENTURE THROUGH EDUCATION  885-9830  8AM-8PM  7DAYS/WK.  51567 Dolphin St. Sechelt  has to be funds found from  other sources like town council  and government, she says.  At one time several years ago  there was a paid coast recreation staff person. He was hired  to do the job, but wasn't right  for it and things didn't work  out.  So now there is only a summer co-ordinator for children's  programs paid by Howe Sound  Recreation.  "We need people to join the  association. Then we can apply  for money and get programs going.  "The former Women's Institute Hall that has been used  as a transport facility by the  school board is being returned  for recreation or other town  use. It used to be the town  meeting place. There we can  hold young people's events like  dances," she says.  She remembers when the  Gibsons Sea Cavalcade was  nearly knocked out financially  when it faced an $840 charge for  use of school facilities. That's  the kind of problem which has  to be solved.  The roller rink is built, but it  is locked up and not used in  winter. It needs to be covered so  it can be used year round, she  says.  The same goes for the  skateboard rink. People are  needed to supervise these  facilities during set hours.  In the draft of the constitution for an incorporated recreation association it says: "The  purpose(s) of the society is to  assess the existing recreational  activities in the Gibsons, B.C.  area and to determine the ongoing and future needs and to encourage the participation of  youth and adults in establishing  an all-encompassing program in  the Town of Gibsons with the  cooperation of the Town of  Gibsons, the Howe Sound  Recreation Society, School  District 46 and the Gibsons  Landing Heritage Society."  People wishing to join an  association, or otherwise interested, are welcome to call her  at 886-3780 (886-2488 on Friday  and Saturday), or visit her at  home at Gower Point Road and  Kelly.  S.C.

Installation of lights at the intersections of Conrad and  Oldershaw Roads and at location P319 was approved by the  Sunshine Coast Regional  District board at its inaugural  meeting December 1. The lights  were requested by Chief D.  Mulligan of the Roberts Creek  Volunteer Fire Department.  "Neither one of these intersections is clearly visible from  both sides. Traffic often overshoots the access road, then attempts to make the turn off the  highway, causing a hazard to  iraffic travelling in either direction.  "Also, hopefully, the lights  will illuminate the corners at  each side of the Peninsula  Hotel, as we are constantly called to motor vehicle accidents in  this area, usually caused by cars  entering the corners too fast for  road conditions," wrote the fire  chief.  Urging approval for his motion to approve the lights,  SCRD   Vice-chairman   Bretl  McGillivray said the Christmas  lights display there annually is a  considerable local attraction bringing many visitors to the Sunshine Coast to see it. It was  hoped the lights could be in this  year in time for the display.  Liberals hold  annual meet  The Sunshine Coast Liberal  Association held its annual  general meeting November 26 at  the Liberal office on Cowrie  Street in Sechelt.  Bob Leduc, Sunshine Coast  campaign chairman for federal  candidate Al Warnke, thanked  the many persons who assisted  with the campaign. It was noted  Warnke polled a substantial increase in votes compared to the  1984 federal election.  Bev Miller, in thanking the  outgoing executive, reviewed  the  accomplishments   of  the  association in 1988. These included the organization of the  successful rally in support of the  reinstatement of the 10:30 am  ferry sailing, the sponsorship of  a luncheon featuring the  honourable Sharon Carstairs of  Manitoba and the staffing of a  permanent Liberal constituency  office in Sechelt.  Gordon Wilson, leader of the  B.C. Liberal Party, congratulated all for a good showing in  the federal election and outlined  strategy for the coming provincial bi-elections.

The speaker for the evening  was Joy Walkey. She entertained the group with her speech on  the pleasurers of flying. She entitled her talk 'We've come a  long way'.  Several members enjoyed the  opportunity to evaluate Joy's  speech. This made for an interesting change for the group.  Instead of the usual table  topics session, the members  'brain stormed' ideas to boost  the presenl membership. Many  good ideas were presented.

FACT: Parking was the first  'study' ever undertaken by the  thealre group. Given that most  thealre events will be in the  evening, adjacent parking  spaces at the post office,  municipal offices, health unit,  museum, municipal lot and on  the streets in the immediate area  provide more lhan ample parking.  If Ms Dixon thinks local merchants will not be delighted to  have theatre goers come early  for dinner and browse or window shop, she's obviously never  been in business.  FACT: Theatre goers have  never had a particularly rowdy  reputation, so policing needs  shouldn't increase. We deal  wiih ferry traffic many times  daily, so traffic shouldn't need  extra controls.  Water and fire protection  should be no more burdensome  than any of the multi-family  dwellings currently under construction.  FACT: Ms Dixon wishes for  a multi-purpose recreational  facility, quite different from a  theatre. However, when considering the Centennial '86 proposal for a multi-use facility tied  in with Gibsons Winter Club  and Swimming Pool, council  minutes show that a previous  council and its planner  "discussed at length the many  advantages attributable to the  location of a theatre in 'Gibsons  Landing' (the Lower Town) as  opposed to the Upper area.  "For example, such a facility  would thereby:  "(a) be an integral part of the  historic communily centre;  "(b) be a catalyst for much  needed re-development; the Upper area will continue lo grow  regardless whereas the 'Landing' area requires intervention  via the direction of such community buildings;  "(d) serve as a focal point of  pedestrian interest and access,  from both street and shore;  "(e) would have an aesthetic  setting second to none."  Council Ihen moved that:  "For many reasons such as  ihose outlined above, council  wishes to urge Ihe Centennial  '86 Committee to consider most  seriously a theatre in 'Gibsons  landing' (ie Lower Town) as  Phase One of their project planning."  Furthermore, if Ms Dixon  were to read the recently completed Gibsons Economic  Development Strategy Plan, she  would discover that this astute  body has recommended as a  major component in the area's  future economic health and  "considered worthy of  pursuit", the development of  -"A downtown, water-oriented  theatre, sufficiently intimate in  site as to integrate easily into the  fabric of the 'landing' area."  FACT: No one is more concerned or working harder than  our society to ensure that the  theatre will be financially self-  sufficient. That is why location  and atmosphere are so important.  If Ms Dixon wants a  guarantee that a theatre will be  a 'white elephant', then make it  a multi-use building with  nothing particularly theatrical  about it, put it in an out-of-the-  way place that visitors and half  the residents will never see or  know about, and make a night  out at the theatre no more exciting or cultural than going to  the gym.  Ask the Powell River people,  whose 'rec' centre theatre, while  well-equipped, is rarely used or  attended, although theatre  thrived when the venue was an  old hall nearby.  FACT: While Ms Dixon  maligns the motives of our  directors by saying we "seem to  view (ourselves) as the cultural  taste-makers for the rest of the  community", may I remind her  that a theatre building does not  determine what goes on inside  it. A theatre provides a venue  wherein every cultural tasle can  be enjoyed, and entertainments  could be as varied as the  numbers of people who would  come out to see them.  If Ms Dixon doesn't enjoy at  tending dance, musical or  theatrical events in their proper  setting, she should not try to  prevent her neighours from doing so. They currently have to  go into Vancouver to do so.  FACT: The directors of the  theatre project have chosen as  part of their volunteer community work to undertake the  tedious, detailed and seemingly  never-ending task of trying to  build a theatre for the benefit of  all residents of the Sunshine  Coast.  As we run into problem  areas, we seek solutions. As we  discover new information and  possibilities, we course correct  and fine tune our plans.  And in the face of uninformed criticism such as Ms Dixon's  we vow to continue, believing  the end result will be worth it all  if we succeed.  FACT: Support for the  theatre project has never been  more crucial. Grant applications are being considered by  both the federal and provincial  government. All those who  believe in the exciting potential  of the theatre project are urged  to please help us now.  People of vision and imagination who can foresee the  benefits which a beautiful little  theatre could provide for this  area are asked to join the society ($5 single, $7 family) or to  pledge or buy a seat in the  theatre for $250. As the Public  Relations Administrator of  B.C. Tel said when she received  our proposal and request for  support, "This is the most exciting project to come across my  desk in 10 years."  With your help we can make  it a reality.  For information about the  theatre project, please do not  hesitate to talk to any of our  directors by calling the theatre  office at 886-8778.  -DEPENDABLE   AUTO SERVICE  Did you know...

EDC discusses tourism  by Penny Fuller  As a major industry on Ihe  Sunshine Coast, tourism, and  its promotion are of major concern to the Economic Development Commission (EDC). For  the past two years, the EDC has  supported the promotional activities of Travel Sunshine Coast  wiih a $15,000 grant.  The group is a non-profit  organization of representatives  from Ihe lourisl industry and  ihe marketing arm of the  tourism task force which was  organized in 1986.  However, economic developmeni officer, Bill Moore, lold  the meeling of the EDC last  week there are some concerns  about the future of Travel Sunshine Coasl. He said a number  of tourism operators have said  they won't be supporting that  organization this year. The staff  has been cut from a full time lo  a half time position.  Moore asked the commission  lo discuss the alternatives of  having the chambers of commerce handle tourism promo-  lion off the coasl, of finding someone lo act as a coordinator  for those efforts, or of not being involved with tourism promotion al all.  Art Giroux pointed out thai  ihe chambers of commerce  operate quite separately and are  mainly accountable to the  municipalities of Gibsons and  Sechelt. Neither municipality  belongs lo Ihe EDC.  "We have (o look al the  generic aspect of it," he said.  "We have to get people here  and Ihen the chambers can look  after them."  Ken Collins of the Gibsons  Chamber of Commerce and  Bonnie Paetkau of the Sechelt  Chamber of Commerce agreed.  "We recognize that tourism  makes a significant contribution  to business in Gibsons," Collins  said, "and we would welcome  more interaction wiih Sechelt,  bul we don'l have ihe financial  or manpower capabilities to  carry the ball."  "Neither do we," agreed  Paelkau. "And it can't be done  in bits and pieces. It needs to be  done under an umbrella with  funds to pay someone to be a  coordinator."  EDC chairman Maurice Egan  suggested a meeting be arranged  between representatives of the  two chambers and Travel Sunshine Cost "...to see if we can't  come up with an approach for a  more integrated, more productive tourism and information  service."  Paetkau and Collins agreed  to take the suggestion back to  their organizations.  To find out about  an educational or  training course, you  could spend hours  with these.

Electric Plus gives you all the advantages of modern,  energy-efficient electric heat at a saving  of up to 50% on fuel costs if you now  use oil or propane. Your Electric Plus  heating system is clean and convenient, quiet and 100% efficient. You can  choose from a variety of ways to heat  electrically with Electric Plus, while  having oil, propane, butane, wood or  coal as a back-up heating system.  You can get Electric Plus  at a special low rate.  Electric Plus is offered at the special  low rate of 2.50 per kilowatt-hour  (about half the regular cost) because  it is surplus energy. When no  surplus is available, Electric Plus  is interrupted and you switch to  your back-up system. We expect  interruptions to be infrequent but  when one does occur it will likely last  throughout an entire heating season.  ro  pROyDOFOUR  Convenient Hydro financing is  available at only 8Mo.  For most homes, the entire cost of converting to  dual-fuel Electric Plus can be covered by  B.C.Hydro financing. It's available on approved  credit at only 816%.

BEVCA Developments Ltd.  proposed Ihe RV park on Lol  4454 NWD, Porl Mellon  Highway.  Terminal Foresi Products  Ltd. wrote to Ihe SCRD protesting the proposed RV park  which would be near TFP properly where plans for development are proceeding. The park  would mean a 60-unit residential community and create Ihe  age-old situation of industrial-  ized-residential contlict, wrote  R.B. Fisher, forestry division  general manager for Terminal  Foresi Products.  "Their point is very well  taken," said SCRD Director  Jim Gurney.  "We need to prolect our industrial areas. Industry needs to  know it will be protected from  resideniial conflict," he said.  The Terminal Foresl Products letter to SCRD Chairperson Peggy Connor was, in pari,  as follows:  "Further to our meeling of  November 10, 1988, we would  like lo confirm in writing some  of our discussed concerns with  respect lo the proposed RV park  on Lol 4454:  "I. We do nol believe there is  a sufficient water supply for industrial use, fire protection,  domestic and hatchery uses.  "2. There is a strong potential for the pollution of Ihe hatchery waler supply hy either  sewer effluent or by physical interference with Oullelte Creek  and ils tributaries.  "3.

There is a distinct potential for conflicts between industry and residents of an RV  park or other residential or  recreational sites due lo possible  sight, noise and air pollution  associated with an industrial  park.  "5. Will Ihere be adequate  policing to provide security for  potential trespassers in any  reservoir and industrial areas?  "We realize Ihe presenl zoning allows for campgrounds and  RV sites, and when Ihe above  five points are addressed, even  this low density development  presents a serious concern. Of  further concern and possibly ihe  biggest danger is lhat the  developers are advertising an  RV park with individual services, which amounts lo a  60-unit  residential communily  on the boundaries of an industrial park.  "It was our understanding  from our first meeling, thai the  Sunshine Cast Regional District  plan for the area North of  Williamsons Landing was for  industrial development while  residential development would  be confined to the south. We  were encouraged, not only by  ihis plan, but also by the  foresight of your board and  planners.  "We have for Ihis reason,  and on Ihe assumption we are in  an industrial zone thai is well  placed away from resideniial  areas, conlinued on wilh corporate plans for developmeni of  our properly.  "We, therefore, feel that  should the proposed RV park  developmeni wilh all ils  ramifications proceed, ii will  nol only lead lo the 'age old' industrial vs residential conflict  but also diminish the full intent  of your planning."  nuDREAM  ohoppe  For that Special Someone!
