The three animals have been relocated lo Ihe  Stuart Burnside pholo  by  Stuart  Burnside  cougars (mother and kitten) which were captured near Port     Fraser Canyon.  Cougars Invade'Port Mellon  Three cougars captured in  two separate incidents last  Thursday near Port Mellon  have been released in the Fraser  Canyon. The animals came to  the attention of authorities after  one of the cats approached a  woman out with her dog.  Inga Fenwick told the Coast  News that she was waiting for a  friend at a booming ground  close to Howe Sound Pulp and  Paper Wednesday afternoon,  when a commotion from her  sheltie dog 'Julie' caused her lo  look around. Directly behind  her was a young cougar,  "within reaching distance."  "I just turned around and  there it was," said Fenwick, "it  backed off a couple of 'cougar  lengths' and I yelled at it and  threw a stone. It spat at me and  hissed, then it went slinking  away."  Fenwick, a resident of that  area since 1943, said it's only  the third such animal she's ever  seen there. She added that, after  her display of animosity scared  the animal away, she continued  to wait for her friend..."from  inside his truck."  District Conservation Officer  Doug Pierce learned of the encounter later trTartlaytifitfiiiatJe  arrangements with the Regional  Wildlife Control Officer Dennis  Pemble to come over from Abbotsford the following morning  (bringing bloodhounds and a  tranquillizer gun with him) to  help subdue the animal.  However, according to Pierce  when the two men arrived on  the scene at 8 am Thursday,  they judged from the tracks that  there were probably as many as  three mountain lions in the  area; a mother and two 'kittens'  (80 pounds each).  The bloodhounds were turned loose and, after a three hour  chase, two of the cougars (the  mother and a kitten) were treed  in two separate trees "about 200  yards apart".  Pierce said officer Pemble  tranquillized both of them while  they were "hissing down from  the branches" and they were  then taken to a storage, locaton  to await transportation to  Fraser Canyon, the area cited as  their new home. Later thai  afternoon, and after the first  two animals were safely incarcerated, he and Pemble went  back to the area, "just to make  sure there wasn't a third lion  around."  Again the dogs picked up a  scent, and, said Pierce, "after a  45 minute hunt," a second 'kitten' was drugged and soon  reunited with the rest of its  family.  "These animals are worth  saving," Pierce told the Coast  News, "they haven't been spoiled."  "Spoiled", according to  Pierce, is when mountain lions  come to rely on human habitation for their food source. He  noted that, while lions usually  prefer to kill their food and,  unlike bears, avoid such 'conveniences' as garbage, it isn't uncommon for them to begin to  regard household pets as an  easy source of sustenance.  Pierce said, at the present  time, there are numerous  * reports of mountain lions coming from all over the Coast,  from Port Mellon to Egmont.  He told the Coasl News that  between capturing the first two  lions and then the third, his time  was devoted to investigating  another, unrelated, cougar  report from Roberts Creek.  Pierce blames the apparent  'cat' inundation on spring, saying, "This happens every year."  He noted that, in an average  year, eight mouniain lions are  captured for re-release on the  Coast, "as a direct result of  complaints from area  residents."  Summing up the action provided by the conservation officers, lnga Fenwick said,  "They arrived very quickly, and  had the problem taken care of  in three hours. Then they came  back to double check and got  another animal."  Prompted by Robinson case  Skelly seeks  RCMP curbs  by Jan Michael Sherman  MP Ray Skelly is calling for  significant changes in the  RCMP Act which would bring  about a five-year review  mechanism of the act itself, as  well as the strengthening of the  authority of the independent  RCMP Public Complaints  Commission.  Skelly's move came about  partially as a consequence of the  Donald Robinson/RCMP  assault case. This week, the  federal police force agreed that  Coast resident Robinson had  been assaulted twice by Gibsons  Cpl. Bruce Waite while Robinson was in custody. Senior  RCMP Officer Norman Inkster  also issued an apology to  Robinson.  Skelly was involved in the  case almost from the beginning.  "Robinson and his family tried  for an investigation, but were  frustrated at the lack of  cooperation," said Skelly.  "They came to me. (Ultimately)  I wrote to the Solicitor-General  asking for an investigation, but  he said he'd looked into the  matter and that Mr. Robinson  was the 'author of his own  misfortune.' "  Skelly wrote a second,  "stronger" letter, but, again,  was seriously disappointed with  the response, particuarly as it  related to "Robinson's medical  condition." The Robinson  family went ot BC's ombudsman, who suggested they  go to the RCMP Public Complaints Commission.  "The RCMP officially opposed an investigation by the  commission, claiming that while  Robinson had been arrested on  September 30, 1988, the Complaints Commission had nol  received its mandate until October I���the next day!" Skelly  said with some lingering  disbelief. "But the courts  Upheld the commission's right  to investigate."  As a direct result of their investigation into the Donald  Robinson case, the Complaints  Commission discovered what  Skelly describes as "serious inadequacies in their  authority...They've made 38  recommendations for changes  to the RCMP Act to make their  agency more effective."  The MP was quick to point  out that, "getting the RCMP is  not the raison d'etre for attempting to bring about these  changes. This agency (the Complaints Commission) makes a  good police force better. Ninety  per cent of all citizen complaints  MP Ray Skelly calls for public  against the RCMP are mediated  or dismissed as having no basis.  Only a very few���like Don  Robinson's���ever go this far."  Skelly hopes to get representatives from all three political  parties, the RCMP, and the  Complaints Commission to  come before the Justice Committee in order to "collectively  bring these changes forward."  Asked what his position would  be should the RCMP choose  not to become involved in this  legislative push to amend the  RCMP Act and strengthen the  powers of the Public Complaints Commission, Skelly  simply replied, "In the final  analysis, we'll go ahead with or  without the RCMP.  "The commission wants���as  do   I   and   others-public  disclosure of disciplinary action.  Jin Michael Sherman photo  response from the RCMP when  disciplinary action is involved.  There must be public disclosure  (on the part of the RCMP) as to  what's been done in any case of  a disciplinary nature to enable  the public to ascertain whether  the punishment fits the crime."  Staff Sergeant Hamilton,  speaking on behalf of  Superintendent Cowlie of the  Vancouver sub-division of the  RCMP, was asked by the Coasl  News to comment on reports  circulating which contend that  Cpl. Bruce Waite is to be  transferred and promoted.  Hamilton had no comment.  Waite himself laughingly  dismissed the report as having  no basis in fact. "I don't have  the destiny of my career," he  told the Coast News.  by J<ui Michael Sherman  A massive, 350MW (megawatt) hydroelectric project on  the Elaho River that is intended  to supply electrical power for  export to American public  utilities in the Pacific  Northwest, has entered the  "pre-application phase" of the  Energy Project Review Process.  According to a memorandum  from the Ministry of Energy,  Mines and Petroleum Resources  (MEMPR), Fairmile Construction Ltd proposes to commence  the construction phase in early  1993, | completing the billion  dollanplus project sometime in  1997.  The Elaho River is above  Princess Louisa Inlet at the  head of Jervis Inlet. It is part of  the Sunshine Coast Regional  District Area A, and Area  Director Gordon Wilson made  it clear at the SCRD meeting  last Thursday that he had  substantial concerns and questions regarding the entire project.  "Fairmile's prospectus calls  for a 500 foot high earth and  rock-filled dam to be built on  the Elaho some 4.5 miles above  the confluence of the Elaho and  the Squamish. This means both  rivers will be heavily impacted."  The construction company  will also produce 725,000 acre-  feet of live storage which  translates to approximately  7000 acres put under water. The  area currently consists of forest  land and wildlife habitat.  According to Wilson, the law  requires that "some reference  be made to the BC Utilities  Commission for permission to  proceed with this project. The  Ministry of the Environment  (Water Management Branch) is  going lo have to review it,  because the project will completely change the course of the  Elaho River."  "There's a whole eco-sysiem  lhal is going to be  flooded���destroyed",   Wilson  pointed out, suggesting that an  impact study of the power site  environment will be needed if  for no other reason than thai  "There will be a 230KV, Single  Circuit line running 36 miles to  the Cheekye Station just outside  Squamish."  Fairmile's prospectus claims  that there will be some $400  million in construction costs,  suggesting that some revenues  will be coming into this area.  But what the SCRD directors  want to know is to what extent  local government will receive  direct financial compensation.  Jeremy Frith, Area F Director, angrily noted that "They'll  be creating a totally different  environment by diverting the  Elaho. This is for private pro-  Jit���and it's madness!"  Frith wasn't the only board  member questioning the raison  d'etre for the project. The idea  of "damming BC rivers lo supply energy to the United States"  was of concern to many. Said  Director Brett McGillivray:  "We can't stress enough  becoming involved in this process. Our environment is in  jeopardy. We take the  risk���others get the  benefit...This project is not  even for the benefit of BC���this.  is dangerous stuff! There's been  no consultation with local interests."  A motion proposed by Director Gordon Wilson and amended by Gibsons' representative  Eric Small was passed  unanimously. It establishes for  the record that the SCRD is opposed to the project until it  receives more substantial information and/or the findings of  an impaci study.  Said Gordon Wilson, "We  want those people (Fairmile) to  come and make a presentation  to the board."  Part of Fairmile's rationale  for choosing Ihe Elaho River  site for their power plant is  revealed in their prospectus:  "All affected areas are currently  uninhabited and have little  public access."  Bus schedule clash  by Rose Nicholson  The Sunshine Coasl, not too  long ago, had only the limited  services of the Maverick buses,  but has graduated to the point  where it is now served by three  different bus services. There are  times when this abundance trips  over itself, and Diane Shafer of  the Gibsons Bus Service is trying to iron out some of the glitches.  In a letter to the Regional  District, Shafer has asked for  help to correct current schedule  overlaps and duplication with  the BC Transit Minibus runs.  She points out that the Gibsons bus, which operates within  the town and surrounding  areas, provides an extensive service, with runs from 5:30 am to  9 pm (and to 10:30 pm on  weekends and holidays).  Because it is a privately owned  company, the Gibsons bus finds  itself trying to compete with the  government subsidized minibus,  "and there are times," she said,  "when we are hard pressed."  On some runs in Gibsons,  both the minibus and the Gibsons bus travel the same route  'Am*''  Gibsons  Bus  driver  Diane  Sedate  only minutes apart. In other  cases, passengers travelling on  the minibus from the Sechelt  direction miss Gibsons bus connections to the ferry by a few  minutes.  Shafer is suggesting a change  in routes and scheduling for  both services that would  eliminate the duplication of services and provide runs to a  wider area.  "With such a wide area to  service," she said, "and so few  vehicles, it seems unbelievable  that one area should have two  buses going to the same destination within five minutes, and  other areas with no service at  all.  "There is no need for competition between our buses. We  have both had passenger in-  Please tain to page 5  mm Coast News, March 18,1991  Early death for RCCA?  ���  mm 'Irf ���  H  '  Ce   A    "*      '  .      f>         -   '^11  EjBKH  *'!\S^  Hk      1 Wri  . �� n  ���faV      ���                                                     ���  o h  TUG  1/  (v;  r fi   c" /?

Service within 10 weeks  Ferry plans  still vague  by Calhrine Fuller  and Jan Michael Sherman  Speaking at a press conference following a lengthy  meeting wilh Stewart Vinnells,  the man intending to bring a  fast, passenger-only ferry to Ihe  Sunshine Coast, specifically  Gibsons, Mayor Eric Small  acknowledged lhat, "We all see  a definite housing crisis coming  soon wilh or without the fast  ferry."  This remark was prompted  by a Coast News question regarding the impact of some 70 ferry  employees, which Vinnells'  Island Development Group  Ltd., will situate in Gibsons  with the implementation of the  new service, set lo begin in May.  In Small's view, ihe exacerbation of the existing housing  crunch in the Gibsons area is  something Ihe Gibsons Council  is already trying lo prepare for.  "All the current council  members were elected on a clear  platform of anticipating, controlling and preparing for  growth," the mayor asserted.  Dr. Vinnells met wilh Small  and Gibsons' aldermen last Fri  day providing, for the first lime,  an opportunity for the town to  voice iheir concerns and ask  questions. Alderman John  McNevin said lhat he had some  "concerns" about the project,  bui fell thai al ihis point in  lime, "Wc don'l have a problem."  Mayor Small said lhal for  council members Ihe meeting  with Vinnells confirmed what  ihey already suspecled���lhat  the infrastructure for the ferry  service is nol yel firm.  For his pari, Dr. Vinnells  described Ihe meeting as an opportunity for his company to  "...explore the different  possibilities of what's  available."  "We're looking for longterm  solutions," Vinnells claimed,  adding that he will be working  closely with Gibsons municipal  staff and council member to  find permanent, satisfactory arrangements for parking, bus  service, and waiting facilities.  "Il won't be successful unless  we all work logether," he emphasized, "but there's no question lhal all lhal will be resolved."  �� *  lfmMrtMlfMH    '  ���r.- ������>-:  ������- ���   ' ��� "' '���'Cjm  5!  ���let  1,  ^������r*hJu*  '���fillfce   Pfl^laeS^JlL  laaal*~       >*"���   tJS&feY, i*;T*B  WamAmaamP^m7>'- jj2  eaaaaam\*tJeaP   If  3&��&$m*!y   ���    ���!  4              ^  ?~"JHfjF^  ^^Sessss*  Stewart  Vinnells  (left) of  Island  Development  Group, and  Mayor Eric  Small met  last Friday  to discuss  the infrastructure  necessary  for the new  fast ferry  service.

The Community Associationr  a non-profit organization that  has, under one name or  another, provided a rallying  point and forum for Roberts  Creek residents for nearly 60  years, has become a burden to  some of its executive members.  "The annual election is coming up in April," said Almond,  "And some of the people on Ihe  executive board don't want lo  be bothered anymore. "It's the  same people who keep it running year after year, and they're  tired."  Almond's rationale for Ihe  lack of interest in the Association is "People can't be  bothered unless something affects them, then the people  show up al ihe hall (Roberts  Creek Community hall) lo demand action."  The current membership of  the Association, according to  Almond, is about 50, and he  estimates the current 'Creek  population to be around 3000.  "That's nol a hell of a lol of interested people."  Almond says the function of  the Association is to deal with  everything...every little thing  that comes up that bothers  somebody in Roberts Creek."  On Ihe list of Association accomplishments, Almond lists  ihe establishment of the Roberls  Creek Volunteer Fire Depart  ed in June of 1990 by the BC  Ferry Corporation, v/ai probably overly optimistic in its  estimate of potential users.  Mayor Small added that���in  his opinion���Dr. Vinnells' projections were also optimistic.  An American Dreamscape  I woke fearful and drenched  in sweat, wilh red, while, and  blue stars and stripes dancing a  patriotic lango in front of my  sleep-starved eyes.  The content of the dream, Ihe  fabric of the nighlmare which  had been so clear momenis ago,  was shredded and indistinguishable like the makings of  a good burrito. Bui the revelation spinning out of my nocturnal middlings hil me like a ion  of smart carpet bombs, impacting squarely on the grey-  speckled shag of my head.  It's gonna be Quayle-Rcagan  in '92! Remember, folks, you  read about it first right here,  right now. The only reason I'm  letting you in on this Mother-  Of-AII-Satoris is because of the  obvious implications such a  presidential ticket holds for  Canada.  We are, after all, one of the  El Primo Sychophantes of the  New World Order, And we're  gonna be expected to keep car-  ryin' water for that Big  American Global Swat Team as  it bestrides the planet ever on  the lookout for new and more  odious���and over-rated  ���tanktown dive artists to set up  and annihilate.  In my dream I saw George  "American Caesar" Bush, on  his yuppie knobby knees, praying to Saddam and Noriega.  FROM THE HIP  J.M. Sherman  They were in the form of those  stuffed figures you hurl  baseballs at on the carnival midway. A third figure with a question mark for a face bobbed  back and forth in front of  George, emitting wheezy,  squeaky, blood-curdling  chuckles and chortles.  I knew what this meant. Bush  has led a charmed life to this  point and knows it. He knows  he can't get any luckier than he  did with Noriega or that  Panamanian clown's clone,  Saddam Hussein. Hell, recently  Bush bragged that American  soldiers were safer on the front  lines during Desert Storm than  is your  average Connecticut  Slate Trooper on patrol in  Newark. Can such excessive  pride, such hubris, go for long  uncorrected?  In my dream, Bush is now  leading a joyful, clown-suited  Danny Quayle lo the Tunnel of  Love which boasts an entrance  in the shape of a seductive male  mouth with vcrmillion lips and  tiled-down teelh. Bush buys  Quayle a candy floss and turns  him over to a large old man in  combat fatigues carrying a  raygun.  The meaning is un-  mistakeable! With his approval  rating higher lhan God's immediately following the creation, Bush is unlikely to run for  a second term because he's certain to win!  And if he wins, what does he  do for an encore once the  domestic situation becomes  even more untenable and  politically damaging as it was  prior to the Hundred Hour  Rout? Liberate the homeless?  Redistribute the wealth? Or,  even better, re-invade Vietnam  and set the record straight?  Naw, Bush is not as out of  touch with reality as I tend to  give him credit for. But don't  take my word for it, here's the  last image in my dream. There  was this tall glass tower shaped  sorta like the United Nations  building, but it was moving  across oceans and great land  masses, gleaming and twinkling  with thousands of points of  light.  It hovers over the White  House, a staircase of coloured,  cushioned air appears. Danny  Quayle, wearing a cap saying  "PREZ" and feeding the  Presidential Seal herring from a  pail, ambles over to where Vice-  President Ronald Reagan  stands autographing copies of  his new book "The Bucks Stop  Here And I Keep Them".  Down the staircase descends  the Supreme Leader of the New  World Order, wearing an  American flag loincloth and  carrying a sceptre with a rubber  stamp head which prints the  words "RE-MADE BY  AMERICA" on any surface,  including liquids. Beside George  Bush, wearing matching red,  white, and blue-striped sweats  and Reeboks, stand Saddam  Hussein and Manuel Noriega.  Both carry bibles. Both have  crewcuts. Saddam carries a  small styrofoam cooler full of  Dr. Pepper.  Bush signals to his myopic  pilot and, with a crisp salute,  Joe Clark revs up the floating  New World Order headquarters.  Now, is there any question  that it's gonna be Quayle and  Reagan in '927  ment, the present availability of  a SCRD water supply, and most  important in many ways, the  settlement plan the Association  helped institute ten years ago.  "The settlement plan has  served a great purpose," said  Almond, "it settled the zoning  and land use in Roberts Creek  so that it wasn't going to be  chopped up by the developers."  He notes however that, once  the settlement plan was  established, residents have had  less reason to worry, and have  become complacent about the  Association. "Again, unless  something else comes up that  bothers them."  Almond feels all that would  be necessary to encourage the  continuation of the Association  would be a show of support  from the community. "Even if  people just show up for the  monthly meetings, it lets us  know the Association is  valued."  Almond would have it known  that the Community Association can and does deal with  issues beyond the boundaries of  Roberts Creek "Restructuring,  location of highways, disputes  wilh BC Ferries...you name it."  This is done through letters to  Victoria, or the various government ministries, organization of  petitions, contact with other  local government entities, etc.  "We're a voice for the people," asserts Almond, "But  they've got to want to talk."  Even if the Association  doesn't fold in April, there is a  "very good" possibility the  community hall will be sold.  "The upkeep is just getting to  be too much because there is no  community interest," he said.  Taxpayers hit  by Stuart Burnside  Sechelt businesses along  Cowrie Street could pay $26.37  per metre of frontage property  to help finance the Downtown  Revitalization project, according to an initial report from  the Revitalization Committee,  while the District of Sechelt and  private residences could pay  $23.51 and $6.59 per metre  respectively.  The first stage of the project  (henceforth to be known as the  Cowrie Street Beautification Initiative, according to Committee  Chairman Doug Reid) would  remove the hydro, telephone  and cable lines from Cowrie and  see ornamental lighting installed.  The report, presented by Reid  at last Wednesday's committee  meeting, estimated the cost of  stage one at $378,764; after  receiving applicable grant, and  is to be financed through the  province's downtown revitalization programme at six per cent  interest over 15 years.  "That's a darn good rale,"  said Reid, "But it may change  between now and when we float  the loan next year."  The cost per metre would  mean the business share of the  financing  would  amount   to  $188,735, the District's portion  would amount to $160,540,  wilh residences providing  $15,621 (Ihe district would agree  lo absorb the cost that would  have gone to the school and  church located in the project  scope, some $3866).  "The reason the District's  costs are less than the commercial rate," "explained planner  Rob Sabine, "is because we are  paying 100 per cent of our own  frontage (as the businesses will)  plus great portions of other  frontages, but it's less than 100  per cent, so, on our total per-  meire basis, it's going to come  to less than the 100 per cent."  Alderman Reid clarified by  saying, "We (the District) are  paying 75 per cent for the  residences between Ocean and  Trail, as well as 90 per cent of  ihe cost to the school (Sechelt  Elementary)."  In 1987, when the first  revitalization plans were being  discussed for Sechelt, costs were  estimated al $800 to $1000 per  lot frontage. All the changes at  that lime were to take place on  private properly, so there would  have been no costs to taxpayers.  Al that time, the revitalization  scheme failed, with less than the  required 50 per cent approval  from property owners.  We Remember When  S YEARS AGO  The SCRD Planning Committee recommended that a  one-year moratorium be placed on new fish farms in  Sechelt Inlet until such time as further research is undertaken on the effects of high density fish farming in the Inlet. Gordon Halsey of the Ministry of the Environment told  Directors that experiences in Scotland have shown that  waste material from fish farms can result in the destruction of oxygen In the water, leading to the death of animal  life.  10 YEARS AQO  Sentences described as lighter than expected were  handed down last week In Vancouver on residents of the  Sunshine Coast and Powell River who obstructed work taking place on the controversial Cheekeye-Dunsmuir power  line.  IS YEARS AGO  Area A Director Jack Paterson is concerned over problems that might arise with the Regional District taking  over the function of maintenance of sewer systems. The  cost to the taxpayer will be one quarter mil.        i  25 YEARS AGO  The Federal Department of Public Works Is considering  the possibility of constructing docking facilities at Selma  Park.  At an Area Water committee meeting In Gibsons Health  Centre, Martin Dayton, professional engineer, estimated a  minimum of $825,000 would be required to set up a water  district system based on six Inch piping.  35 YEARS AGO  Two cougars were shot and killed near Roberts Creek.  Apparently both were starving, as their stomachs were  found to be empty In an autopsy.

Lawrence  on the prairies  IN A NUTSHELL  S Nutter  The Winnipeg Grain Exchange was, in the thirties, the  way all the prairie wheat got out  to the world. There was certainly nothing perfect about this  operation, but il was the only  way. There were hundreds of  traders with offices in ihe big  old building a step or two from  Portage and Main, and ihey  bartered and gambled and  otherwise wangled trades that  would eventually see wheat,  perhaps not yet even sown,  delivered to countries  throughout the world. There  should have been some planet-  wide non-commercial system  you may say, but there wasn't,  and there isn't.  In the late thirties 1 was a  junior in an investment company and would usually be in  Ihis rabbit warren, or wolve's  den, several limes a day. You  got to know your way around  of course. Some of your clients  would have really a lol of  dough, and some would be  barely teetering on an edge.  There would be monthly ups  and downs.

He had at first a usually  small office with a flimsy door,  frosted glass half-way up, and  his name painted thereon. Inside however, it was full of  books. Edwin's status as an international wheat trader remained shadowy in my experience. Ii got that I would pop  in there and he would lend me  books from these piles around  the walls. What he seemed to do  all the time was read, and if you  asked him about ihe market he  could look prcity vague.  There were of course lots of  other guys sitting around in  these liule offices and, having  made some ploy or other, jusi  waiting around to see if it was  going lo work oul. They took lo  preying on Edwin's books, and  Edwin finally look over the office next to his, knocked out ihe  wall, and started a commercial  lending library.  Well ihere seemed lo be  always a lot of guys in there,  furrowing the brow, and  discussing Joyce and Dashiel  Hammet instead of what was  going up on the boards. Edwin  got in a secretary to handle the  monies, took over a third office, and the place was humming.  I don'l know where he got his  books but 1 suspect from London. He had come himself from  London and he certainly had  copies of stuff it was hard to get  in Winnipeg, or anywhere in  Canada it turned out. We didn't  believe Ihere was censorship in  our land of the free, but if you  went to the Hudson's Bay Book  Store and ordered a copy of  Ulysses you had to pay in advance, and ihey told you that  maybe it would not make it over  the border. I paid twice for  mine.  Bui Edwin had had it on his  shelves for three months before  then, and various other authors  of rather tangy reputation at the  time���James Branch Cabell and  D.H. Lawrence to mention two.  It was a copy of one of  Lawrence's books, from  Edwin's shelves, that got me into a bit of trouble.  There are some things from  one's past lhal don't seem to  add up today, but I was, at this  time, the president of the  Anglican Young Peoples  Association in Manitoba. This  had to do mainly with the fact  lhal ihe AYPA had a good  drama festival going, and less, I  would have to admit, with any  personal ecclesiastical leaning. I  was, however, also Lay Reader  lo ihe Archdeacon of Rupert's  Land.  So there came a cathedral affair al which I was reading the  lessons. I arrived ut Ihe changing room wilh one of Edwin's  D.H. Lawrence's in my pocket.  Unfortunately this was a slim  black volumn called The Man  Who Died, and of course I left  it there.  It look me a few days to  realize what I'd done. The Man  Who Died is absolutely the last  book you would want to leave  in an Anglican cathedral. In it,  Lawrence is trying to grope his  way to an idea of the possible  oneness of religions. Jesus, the  principle character, does not die  on the cross, is brought to you  by Joseph of Arimathea,  wanders off into Egypt, and has  a really lull experience with a  priestess of Isis.  Well, I mean, after all...I  thought of just leaving it there.  But it was a treasured book of  Edwin's (and still I think a  reasonably rare item). I went  along to ihe good old verger. He  knew all about the book, looked  al me with deep sorrow, and led  me to ihe curate's office. The  curate was ihere and the book  was on his desk.  The curate was one of those  lean types thai used to come out  of Cambridge. He tapped on  the book wilh a fingernail as if  not wanting lo gel any flesh on  il:  "Where did you gel this  book?"  "At the Grain Exchange," I  said.  He looked at me in total bafflement, gave the slightest nod  to-the book, and I scooped it  and fled.

Illana Holloway,  who has raised the most money  of any single walker both years,  will not be walking for Sechelt  Ihis year. Instead, Ms Holloway  has decided lo go for off-shore  sponsorship.

The most recent was  announced earlier this month by  Ihe same team at the Hospital  for Sick Children in Toronto  who, in 1989, isolated the gene  which causes the disease.  Researchers have now  discovered the reasons for the  build up of thick, dry mucus in  the lungs and pancreatic ducts  of victims of cystic fibrosis.  With each breakthrough in  understanding researchers come  closer to the discovery of a control and cure.  ��^ssSSgs  msim  r\  SBPAL  VALUE  -^Jh's Limited Edition  Performer comes specially  WP^tndreWup  22^ that shows  jgf off to be a real  jeature attraction at just  FORD  SK'AL  FEATURES  ���Air or automatic  ���Power door locks  ���Power side windows  ���Dualelectric mirrors  ���Speed control  ���Electronic AM/FM stereo radio  WW. cassette tape player  ���wst aluminum wheels  ���PLUS, MORE!

Someone observed that certain sentries, however, loved  the work to the exclusion of all other pursuits.  Shortly, a small band of highly-motivated sentry types  were assigned solely to the guarding of the populace. At  some point lost in the mists of antiquity, a progressive  society decided that only the police would carry weapons,  and would be sanctioned in the use of necessary physical  force.  To this day, however, most citizens of communities  large or small harbour mixed feelings about their police.  They recognize the necessity for them, but secretly wish  this necessity didn't exist. We are raised to trust the police  but enough violence is visited upon innocent citizens  through fear, inadequate training, and occasionally the  odd cop who really likes exerting power, to taint the relationship between citizenry and those trained and hired to  protect them.  Last week the RCMP issued an apology to Donald  Robinson, agreeing that Mr Robinson had indeed been  twice assaulted while in the custody of the Gibsons RCMP  detachment back in 1988. This action by the respected  federal police organization was too long and loo grudging  in coming, but better late than never.  Like the medical profession, the police have a strong  tendency to turn inward rather than go public when one of  their own crosses the line and exhibits unacceptable  behaviour which calls for disciplinary action. But the existence of and need for civilian review boards demonstrates  how difficult it can be for the police to investigate and fairly deal with their own.  Hopefully, the Robinson case will occasion change in  this vital area of public perception and trust of the police.  The Public Complaints Commission (which investigated  the Robinson case to the bitter end) proved its worth and  should rightfully have its mandate strenghtened as MP  Ray Skelly is now proposing.  No laughing matter  Federal housing minister Allen Redway has relinquished his position after joking about a friend carrying a gun  as he passed through airport security in Ottawa last week.  While Redway's remarks were ill-considered, what  makes them any more reprehensible than the sexist/racist  remarks which constantly pass as acceptable in our society?  What makes a joke about carrying a gun onto an  airplane a criminal offence, while threats of sexual  violence against women at UBC are dubbed 'boyish  pranks'?  It is understandable that authorities have legitimate  fears about terrorism, but we must insist that hysteria-  derived law making is ridiculous. If airlines choose to  refuse passage to people making such remarks, that's their  right.  When we start making bad jokes a criminal offence,  that's when we all stop laughing.  Slip sliding away  Often things we care about most slip away simply as a  result of our benign neglect.  It is possible that the beloved Roberts Creek Hall might  not be with us much longer. Without an infusion of new  support, 'Creekers' will surely lose the heart of their community.  My goodness bul it's getting  crowded in the middle of BC  politics. I mean middle as in  centre. Let's face it, with Gordon Wilson's Liberals scrambling after this elusive middle  ground in our allcdgedly  polarised spectrum of political  choice, wilh the BC Liberals being joined in the middle by the  new BC Pacific Party, and with  Mike Harcourt's NDP seeking  to establish themselves as  mainstream middle so as not to  frighten the voters still in terror  of socialist bogeymen, you  would have lo say thai Ihe BC  body politic with all this weight  around its middle has gone  somewhat to seed.  Which, of course, brings us  lo Ihe best known of our provincial gardeners. Nobody has  accused Premier Vander Zalm  of looking for the middle  ground, possibly because he  seems to believe that he was  born naturally astride this  treasured real estate. .'  lUs Ihe premier, nonetheldjfc,  who Has everyone else scramming lo establish their solid, middle of the road credentials. If  the drivers of British Columbia  were as addicted to the middle  of the road as our politicians  then no one would ever get  anywhere, which is just exactly  what our politicians seem to  achieve so effortlessly.  Battling for  the middle in  BC politics  MUSINGS  John Burnside  The great illusion may be that  there is a centre ground in BC  politics. In this province of individualists and eccentrics, normalcy may in fact be the snarling, quarrelling, ill-natured  bickering which the BC elec  torate has come to expect, if not  enjoy, from its leaders.  Why, maybe we are exactly  the bad-tempered, confused and  strife-ridden lot that our leadership seems to symbolize. We  may be comforted, each in our  idiosyncratic corners and  groupings, that our pet positions and preoccupations are  part of the mainstream, be it the  environment or abortion, but  maybe it just ain't so.  Gordon Wilson was on the  radio the other day on a call-in  show and he seemed to be explaining that it was all the fault  of the media that his Liberals  don't seem to be the natural  beneficiary of what seems to be  the collapse of the Vander Zalm  led Socreds; the new, clean, free  enterprise party is already being  nicknamed the Sour Grapes  Party and the Pee-Pee Party  which denotes a certain derisive  skepticism about its future.  Mike Harcourt may hold his  coalition of differences together  long enough to win the next  provincial election, then the  single blanket which he uses to  cover the divergent interests of  the NDP may well show some  serious strain. The environmentalists and the trade unionists  under Harcourt's blanket are  showing signs of being definitely uncomfortable there, and no  appeal likely to the alleged  'mainstream' voter is going to  reconcile their apparent differences.  So what's a poor voter in BC  to do? Why, what we always  do, of course. We will hold our  collective noses on election day  and grumble our way through  what seems to us on the day lo  be the least offensive of our  available choices, and immediately after Ihe election  festinie slashing arid hacking  away at our pbliticians and each  other with a zeal which the rest  of Canada can only marvel at.  Politics on the Pacific is war.  It's always been that way and it  looks likely to remain lhat way,  presumably because we like it  that way. It's not middle of the  road, it's the middle of the  arena and it's mayhem.  LETTERS  Trashy  teen scene  abhorred  Editor:  I am writing in regards to the  new teen TV series, Northwood.  I am thoroughly disgusted with  the CBC and Nick Orchard, the  producer, for allowing such a  trashy teen scene to come into  our homes (Monday evenings at  8:30 pm, Channel 2).  Northwood is no Degrassl  High. It's a parent's nightmare,  where a drug dealer, a slutty 15  year old, and a grim bunch of  teens make light of drugs,  alcohol, lying, stealing and leen  sex.  Our community here on the  Sunshine Coasl has worked  hard to let our teens know these  behaviours are wrong with:  Education programs and  workshops in our high schools;  formation of the Action-Drug  and Alcohol Counselling Society (formed because of concerned parents and community  members); the local Sunshine  Coast Breakaway Society, a  teen trealmenl program initiated by concerned parents;  developing local teen centres to  provide our youth with a drug  free place to go.  I would like to ask parents to  write to the CBC and the  Secretary General to the Commission of Television to voice  their disapproval. Remember if  we are nol part of the solution,  we are part of the problem.  The addresses to write to are  as follows:  Canada Radio and TV  Telecommunications, Office of  the Secretary General to the  Commission, Ottawa, ON,  K1A0N2.  CBC, Public Relations Dept.,  Box 4600, Vancouver, BC, V6B  4A2.  Monty Shinn  Nautical  Russian  roulette  Editor:  Re: Passenger Ferry Run  ���Gibsons lo Vancouver.  Such a proposal boggles the  imagination. Any vessel, propelled by underwater aparatus,  and speeding, quote "in excess  of 30 knots," will be playing  Russian roulette with the lives  of all those on board.  Driftwood and deadheads are  well known to Coastal waters,  and especially to Howe Sound.  Many of these obstacles are  enormous, and are quite  capable of sinking a vessel even  at slower speeds. They are often  lurking just below the surface  and cannot be seen, even on  radar.  An accident waiting to happen!  P.C. Nicholson  Alliance  incredulous  Editor:  Most participants in the  LRUP have agreed that the  study should encompass areas  adjacent to the contested  plateau. However it is not Ihe  intention of the Tetrahedron  Alliance to defer activity in  these adjacent areas.  The position of the Ministry  of Forests in regard to activity  in the contested area was outlined to us in a letter from Premier  Vander Zalm, dated October  26, 1990. It said, and 1 quote,  "I have been assured by the  minister lhal no further  harvesting will occur in this area  until a Local Resource Use Plan  and an Integrated Water  Management Plan are complete." We have also received  additional letters from the  Premier and the Minister of  Forests reiterating this position.  It would be unbelievably  deceitful lo change this precondition of the LRUP study  without official public notice.  We are incredulous that the  District Manager, Barry Mountain, has even allowed this point  to become contentious.  The Tetrahedron   Alliance  hopes that this situation can be  remedied such that the LRUP  study can proceed. Thank you.  Dan Bouman  Tetrahedron Alliance  Spay or  neuter-  fear no  suitor  Editor:  On behalf of the SPCA, I  would like to thank the Coast  News for offering to assist our  adoptions program by publishing, on a regular basis, a  photograph of an SPCA animal  awaiting adoption.  Each year the SPCA has to  euthanise healthy animals  because they have not been  claimed and no homes have  been found for them. We at the  SPCA care deeply for the  animals in our custody and it is  very distressing to us to have to  do this.  One season which we dread is  soon to be upon us���"kitten  season". We plead with cat  owners who have not yet had  their cat spayed or neutered to  do so NOW before another litter of unwanted kittens is handed to the SPCA.  Our aim is to have a zero  euthanasia rate. Please help us  achieve this number. If you can  open your heart and home to an  unwanted animal, check the  photograph in the Coasl News  or contact us for details of other  pets awaiting adoption.  Irene M.

Deo Oram  SectieR: Ruth Forrester,  Donreo Sherman  Clearcutting  polarizing  community  Editor:  I won't want to question the  expertise of our local foresters  and loggers; but, on the other  hand I wouldn't want to question the very real concerns forwarded by local citizens. More  to the point is the fact that  arguments and experts can be  found to support either side.  Clearcuts are genuinely not a  very pretty thing to look at.  Having your backyard or fish-  egg hatchery washed away by  slides or flash-floods originating  on old cut-blocks or poorly  built roads is not a pleasant experience.  Watching the last stands of  old-growth and wilderness areas  disappear isn't exactly inspiring  either. Finding out that as an individual citizen, or as a group,  you have no real control over  what is happening in your  backyard is a shock.  Vet, given the relatively recent intense emergence of the  debate it would be unfair to expect industry to re-equip overnight. It's not that easy to  change. Jobs are being lost.  Moreover, progress is being  made to address environmental  and public concerns and credit  is due for these efforts. Continued citizen interest and in  volvement can only serve to  continue this process.  Something needs to be done  to resolve the problem before  we become too polarized in our  stances. Each side must realize  that, not only is there a lot to  learn, but that behind every  crises there are hidden opportunities.  Perhaps, rather lhan tossing  the coin back and forth, we can  stand it on its edge, place a  table-top on it and sit down  around il.  Dan E. Cardinall  Second  thoughts  on Small  Editor:  With a heavy heart I must  apologise for misleading your  readership and withdraw my  recently published endorsement  of Mayor Eric Small.  I now find that Mr. Small, as  Gibsons' appointee to the  Regional District will not support the rest of the directors in  their efforts to purchase Block 7  of Gospel Rock for parkland.  During his election campaign he  promised to save Gospel Rock  for park.  Shame on you, Mr. Mayor.  You absolutely do not represent  the people of Gibsons on this!  You also do not represent the  will of your council on this.

I am at a loss as to what  makes one go and dump their  refuse out in the forest, more  often than not in a clearcut logging slash. Do they feel as  though that clearcut area is  already destroyed and that  somehow justifies their actions?  Or is it because nature doesn't  fight back like your neighbour  would if you went and unloaded  your garbage in their backyard  and got caught in the act?  Of course, I honestly don't  expect an illegal dumper to  come forth and answer my  questions for me, for they are  no better than a drunken  driver...how so? They can be  anybody: a friend, family or  simply some fool who has absolutely no sense of values.  What is more, if they don't get  caught they'll keep right on doing it until...why yes, until they  kill somebody. The only difference is that these offenders  never see those they kill.  Aside from those who think  that they're putting less wear  and tear on their vehicle by rattling up a logging road, rather  than going to a designated landfill sight, are those who feel that  because they own a piece of  land they can go ahead and  dump refuse in their own back  yard.  Have you ever seen a fellow  animal die from poisoning? Not  a pretty sight. I have seen birds  and small mammals writhing in  agony as a result of poisoning  and the source was not hard to  find. There at the end of  somebody's property lay the  answer. They saw fit to dump  household garbage and countless car batteries and unmarked  containers in their own private  dump. When it got a little too  unsightly they bulldozed the  whole bloody mess into a  neighbouring creek, giving no  thought whatsoever as to who  may be drinking from that  creek, whether it be a wild  animal or human.  These people need to be exposed for who they really are,  for they are the dumb animals.  The fines they get when caught  are not nearly as stiff as they  should be. Not only that, I  believe their names should be  publicly posted on a bulletin  board somewhere for all to see.  People who see others.illegally  dumping should not turn a  blind eye, but take down their  licence number and other particulars and report them immediately.  I speak on behalf of those  who have no voice, and will do  so as long as crimes against  Mother Nature continue. I've  lived among the creatures of the  wild and they are my friends,  and strange as it may seem, I see  them showing more respect for  us than we for them...should it  not be the other way around?  They are, after all, our  neighbours.  Samuel Moses  Special thanks  Editor:  Two weeks ago I had occasion to visit your community for  the first time. Unfortunately the  visit was under tragic circumstances as I was in Sechelt  to attend the funeral of my  nephew Cal Wiedman.  My sister Jane and her family  have only lived in Sechelt for  two years and I was overwhelmed by the support and generosity of the people in your community. Special thanks to the  gals at the Credit Union, St.  Hilda's Church and all the  friends and neighbours.  It is now evidence to me that  the "Sunshine Coast" refers not  only to the weather but also to  the people who live there!  LoraineAgnew  Winnipeg  Taking it  to the  mountain  Editor's Note: A copy of the  following was received for  publication.  Dear Mr. Mountain:  Our community has put  together a proposal regarding  selective logging in the SBEP  cutblocks on the Sunshine  Coast. Using an example of the  block above Orange Road, we  have researched and analysed  the technical and economic  aspects of clearcutting versus  selective logging. It is clear that  careful selective logging is the  only method sure to protect  water quality.  As well, we have found that  although less profit will be immediately realized from this  method, in the long run it would  provide more economic stability  and jobs to our community  because a harvest every 20 years  is possible.  There are many loggers in our  community who want to be able  to use this ecologically responsible, labour intensive method.  I would like to know your  response to our proposal.  Maria McCartney  Public needs  to be  informed  on logging  Editor:  I appreciated reading Rose  Nicholson's front page article  re: the lack of public participation at the recent five year logging plan presentations. I have  come to the conclusion that  there are indent problems  with...a process which seemingly discourages that participation  in the public's own resource  planning.  Such an apathetic attitude is  not only ignorant and short  sighted, but also provides no  basis for the arguments of the  many detractors of the present  forest policies.  If there are really that many  people out there who want  changes made, they'd better  quit just writing letters of complaint and ensure some informed alternatives are examined  and then, perhaps, implemented.  The present five year public  presentations are, to the average  individual, a confusing procedure and I have little doubt  that many who may wish to express themselves are intimidated  by the format. Many of the ill-  informed comments, which industry officials so often lament,  stem from the industry's failure  to provide the public with a format which is comprehensible to  the average citizen.  An educational campaign to  explain the basic technical  jargon and details involved in  five year plans, and provision of  the intentions of the various  companies on topographical  maps, as well as forestry charts,  are two simple suggestions  which come to mind. The public  needs to clearly see what is intended and where.  Finally, I question the effectiveness of the "open house"  format. A preferable format  would be a public meeting so  that if an individual's questions  are not quite the correct forestry  terms (or if public perception is  flawed), all attendees to the  meeting can be informed.  There is no doubt that small  local "town hall" meetings tend  to inspire intelligent debate,  something that many aspects of  current logging policies surely  lack. If it is greater public participation and rational decision  making we all wish to introduce, it is incumbent on all  sides to pursue the necessary  changes to promote these goals.  Barry J. Janyk  Quebec  sneaking in  back door?  Editor:  What we have witnessed  through some of the media  about the Quebec Liberal convention in Montreal recently,  smells again of distorting the  truth.  Bourassa said that because of  the Meech Lake Accord "rejection" they had to search for  other alternatives to fulfill the  aspirations of the Quebecois,  hence the Allaire Report.  The Meech Lake Accord  would have provided them with  the constitutional legitimacy to  independently implement most  of the 22 demands made in the  Allaire Report, because they  would have enjoyed "Distinct  Society Status".  However, the agenda of the  majority in Quebec has always  been, and will be, for special  privileges for which English  speaking Canada has to pay to  the tune of $1.9 million per  year! What the Quebecois could  not get through the front door,  they are now trying to smuggle  in through the back door!  Jakob Knaus  Losers  should  'butt out'  Editor:  The last election in Sechelt  proved the wish of the residents.  After election day, we were glad  to see a team in council which  promised to work for the best of  the community.  Several actions have already  shown that our new mayor is  working the right and careful  way in the interest of the people. She has cut off projects and  staff grown too large in relation  to the population.  The people who voted on  council, and most everybody  else, will appreciate the  unselfish work of our mayor,  and try to work together in a  friendly, productive way. It is a  change, but people will be able  to adjust to it.  Unfortunately, there are  some people in the background  trying to get an alderman on  their side, to make the work for  our mayor difficult. It would be  wise if those who were voted out  of council stayed away from  local politics, which they proved  they were unable to handle  while in office.  Detlev Stiegler  Pender  choirs  Editor:  Parents, students and others  present in the gymnasium at  Madeira Park Elementary  School on the evening of March  6 were treated to musical offerings of an unusually high quality.  The primary and intermediate choirs of MPES and  the Grade 7 band class of  Pender Harbour Secondary  School, under the tutelage of  Janice Brunson, sang and  played a variety of songs, ranging from playful numbers about  chocolate and bedbugs to selections from Handel's Music for  the Royal Fireworks. What was  particulary impressive was the  poise and confidence of the  band class, many of whom have  only been playing instruments  since September.  The Parent Advisory Council  of Madeira Park Elementary  School would like to take this  opportunity to thank Ms Brunson for her patience and enthusiasm and for orchestrating  a most pleasant musical evening.

When contacted by the Coast  News, Rosina Giles, who  manages the minibus for Community Services (which is the  contractor for BC Transit), said  that because of Transit regulations, she is allowed no flexibility in scheduling or route services.  "It is a decision between the  Transit authorities and the  Regional District," she said.  "We have been told that there  will be a third bus, but it could  be December before it arrives.  We will expand our service  then, but in Ihe meantime, we  have to stay with the current  schedule."  But in a conversation with  Chris Foord of the Marketing  and Public Relations Division  of BC Transit in Victoria, the  Coast News learned changes in  routing and scheduling would  not be too difficult.

Sales Representative Paul Hamilton Coast News, March 18,1991  Land Use Seminar  a success  by Rom Nicholson  The public concern over  forestry and land use practices  was apparent last week as a  large audience nearly tilled the  Indian Band Hall to hear  several experts discuss the  issues.  Bruce Siefert of the Planning  Department of the Ministry of  Forests told the audience lhat  "present planning methods are  not meeting current needs, so  we are adopting a new view."  He said that his ministry has  plans to team up with other  agencies and public user groups  in a consultation process that  could redesign many current  practices in forestry.  Dr. Hamish Kimmins, Professor of Forest Ecology at  UBC, told the audience lhat  although efforts have been  made lo manage forests on the  basis of ecological concerns  since 1975, it wasn'i until 1987  that the new policy was incorporated into the Forest Act.  "It will take 25 years," he  said, "for Ihe evidence of the  changes that are occurring in  forestry to be apparent.  "The greatest single threat to  our forests is not whether or not  we clearcut...it is human  population growth, wilh the  resulting resource demands,  climatic changes and air pollu  tion. It is we, the industrial nations, the consumers, who affect the forests. We must  change the way the world's  forests are being managed, we  have to get away from exploitation, we have to get to a sustainable basis..."  Kimmins said that the  academics have been "a  miserable failure" in awakening  people to the dangers to the environment and credits the environmental movement with  creating the possiblity for  change. He warned that rhetoric  must now be replaced with solid  scientific facts for the "implementation of the policies and  regulations it takes to achieve  belter management."  He described BC as "one of  ihe most ecologically and  climatically diverse areas in the  world" and warned of the  dangers of generalization.  Ron Elder, silviculturist with  Fletcher Challenge, reiterated  Kimmons' warning about the  dangers of generalization, and  ihe need lo deal with each area  on a site specific basis.  "The current outcry against  clearcutting may lead to a curtailment or elimination of clear-  cutting in the silvicultural  system���that is the choice of  society. It would have serious  implications to forest management in BC."

Ray Green has had several  years experience in the use of  sheep as a means of weed control in reforestation. He described a very successful system  where flocks of about 500  sheep, along with shepherds,  sheep dogs and predator control  dogs, go into an area and effectively control all the common  weed species, bul leave the con  ifers intact.  Jay MacArthur, of the  federation of BC Mountain  Clubs, stressed Ihe importance  of maintaining wilderness  values in forested regions. He  said lhal recreational groups are  becoming more active in providing facilities like trails and  campsites and doing research on  forest resources.  "We, as a group of concerned people, need to get involved  in the planning process," he  said. "I'd like to see more selective logging, with bigger trees  left. Are short term profits  worth ihe cost of liquidating the  old growth forests? When it  really comes down to it, there is  no easy answer. It's all a question of values."

Still in its first year, the choir  was given a standing of 'Excellent' for its performance, a  more than encouraging start for  the pupils.  This year there are 21  youngsters from four schools in  the choir, directed by Janice  Brunson, music teacher in  several schools in the northern  reaches of the district.  "Any pupil in the school  district may take part," says  Janice, "We're grateful to the  Board for their support, too."  The district is well served by  music teachers in most schools,  and a couple of the others by  regular staff members. Karin  Tigert of Sechelt Elementary  told us that she has a choir in  her school and Gibsons music  teacher, Tom Williams, has a  choir there. And those are only  the schools we inquired about.  In We Remember When, last  week, the 25 Years Ago item  told of Gibsons Elementary  choir's appearance on CBC  radio, That would be the  Schools' Broadest,, the last live  radio show the corporation had.  (Then it got too big for its britches.) The director was Muriel  Neilson. An extra-curricular  project then, schools later were  served by music teachers who  also filled in as "helping"  teachers.  Good to see, now, this widespread program in the school  district.  PHOTO  BRINGS MEMORIES  From Victoria where they  continue to enjoy the city and at  present the early flowering  trees, shrubs and flowers, Ross  Gibsons sends greetings and a  WmHW  ���yr-r  "q  photo of the "Gap" seen between snow festooned firs from  a point in Granthams.  The photo is signed G. Cress-  well who will be remembered by  many an Elphinstone grad of  the SO's and rjO's as the  photographer for their group  pictures.  A custodian at the secondary  school during that time, George  Cresswell was not only a  photographer with a professional touch, but an expert in  several other hobbies; notably,  in growing carnations and  chrysanthemums, and constructing his own television set and  an electric organ. Rower growing ceased when obtaining permits for the import of seed from  England became too onerous.  Daughter Dorothy, retired  from the Bank of Montreal in  Gibsons two years ago, tells us  that George will be 90 this July.  They soon leave Granthams to  live in their new house just  being finished in Langley.  "We will be near other members of the family there."  In George's flies of photos  there are still copies of all the  Elphinstone grad groups taken  during his years on staff.  Speaking of the Cresswell  photo that he sent, Ross is  reminded of hiking and picnicking on the Bluff which, along  with Gospel Rock, were serene  places to enjoy nature.

GIBSONS ELEMENTARY  The school is the first to view  and hear the Earthquake  Awareness presentation that  will be given in the district by  teacher Ian Thomson and Director of Buildings and Grounds,  Anton Hendricks.  An updated manual was distributed to the teachers and  custodians, as well as demonstrations of the hazards arising from loose objects hurtling  about a classroom in a voilent  quake.  On another school activity,  music teacher Tom Williams  told us of an Education Week  assembly program.  Entertainers at this Talent  Show were both pupils and  teachers. "The singing and dancing showed a great deal of  preparation by all who took  part," said Mr. Williams, "and  the teachers outdid themselves  in the final number when they  did some Presley songs from the  50's and 60's."  by Jwtce Lctthton M6-3S41  SHARING, SHARING  (Catherine Anne Trueman,  the new Beaver leader, may be  new to the Coast, but she sure  isn't new to Scouting. She  comes to us with experience in  various areas of Scouting and al  present is also the Regional  coordinator for Beavers for the  Vancouver-Coast area with  duties to provide resources and  to train and plan activities for  the region.  Known as 'Ranger Rick' to  the new Roberts Creek colony,  Ms Trueman started the first  Tuesday night meeting at Camp  Douglas with busy activity.  While parents were registering  and reading about coming activities and events, the young  'kids' were busy fitting together  puzzles and figuring out mazes.  The beavers' neighbours, the  owl and the squirrel, were also  on hand to welcome the boys to  the Roberts Creek Beaver Pond.  The boys formed a circle  around the pond. With Ranger  Rick leading and coaching, the  Beavers chanted 'beavers,  beavers, sharing sharing sharing', announcing who they are  and what they do. Sharing is the  main lesson for Beavers. A few  Ranger Rick rules preceded the  running games.  During one game designed to  practise different positions (ie  'chopping position', 'beaver  salute', 'river banks', etc) she  announced a direction (N-S-E-  W) the boys would run toward.  When she announced a position  they would stop to perform it  before then rushing toward  another announced direction.  The number hug was another  unique game. Everyone would  run about until Ranger Rick  said a number. Then they would  have to form a hug group of  that many people.  After all this running came a  movie about beavers���the real  ones that build dams and eat  bark. After that they did some  pasting and to finish up sang  songs with accompanying action movements. Each child  went home with the Beaver Law  and Promise written on iheir  pasting project and a crocheted  face made by Ranger Rick.  The evening was packed with  exciting activity. Ms Trueman  exhibited the organization of a  well trained leader. Roberts  Creek is very fortunate to have  her in Scouting. I want to extend her a warm welcome.  Beavers are boys ages five to  seven. The colony meets  Tuesdays from 6:15 to 7:30 pm  at the Salish Lodge at Camp  Byng. Registration is just prior  to the meeting.

In our homes,  favourite recipes are drawn  from the box and decisions  made about which will be built  and taken to the bake table on  Saturday, March 23 at 11 am.  The Seniors' men get only  supervisory help with their baking and I have overheard the  words "kitchen is a mess." I  guess one shouldn't eavesdrop  on conversations! All of this  and more activity result in a successful Easter Sale and Tea.  I learned from the oil painting group that there will be  some saw blade clocks for sale.  The scenes painted on the clock  faces are unique portrayals of  Coast life using the natural  beauty of water, trees and  wildlife.  Again, there will be a food  hamper. Everyone, please  remember to bring canned  goods or whatever you think  would do for the hamper.  GENERAL MEETING  The monthly General  Meeting on March 21 at 1:30 on  Thursday afternoon will give  you an opportunity to  bring in crafts that have been  created at home. I have seen  bunnies, chicks and all manner  of cuddly things. The birds on  the Coast will not be having s  housing shortage this spring as  I've seen a number of bird  houses being built. There will be  decorated photo albums as well  and if you want one for a  special occasion it can be  specially ordered.  EVENING OUT  A day and evening out can be  accomplished on March 23 with  a cabbage roll dinner at 6 pm.  The entertainment will feature  Nikki Weber, Floyd Carmen  and George and Marg Carpenter with Hawaiian Melodies.  CALENDAR  Keep in mind always crafts ai  9:30 on Thursday mornings.  Upcoming dates to keep in  mind are executive meeting on  April 2 and the Plant Sale ai 11  am on Saturday, April 13.  See you at crafts. Please  phone the news to me for placement in the column.

This year (here were 128 entries  out of which jurors Keith  Wallace and Lynda Gammon  chose IS wilh 10 honorable  mentions. These 25 works are  on display al ihe Arts Centre in  Sechell until April 7.  Accepted works include  cabinetmaking, painting,  photography, sculpture, drawing and mixed media work by  the following artists: Edmund  Bulter, Roger Handling, Robert  Kinnard, Kenneth McMillan,  June Malaka, Norene Marshall,  Christel Fuoss-Moorc, Neejat-  say, Michelle Pedersen, Bill  Perry, Marilyn Rutledge, Trudy  Small, Maurice Spira, Axel  Stenzel and Larry Westlake.  Raku pottery by Ron Patterson will be showing along wilh  Ihe juried exhibition until April  7. His work uses to advantage  ihe contrasting lustrous ir-  ridescence and charcoal blacks  resulting from the raku process,  while exploring the possible  ways in which colours can be  related to shapes���respecting  ihe boundaries of shapes, contradicting them, or connecting  ihem. A feature of most of his  work is the changes of colour  and texture which are linked  cither by technical necessity or  choice in such a way that one  seldom seems to vary without a  corresponding change in the  other. Ron's play with form is  also entertaining, ranging from  punctuation���dimples or denudes in an otherwise consistent  curve���to confrontation���a  voluptuous vase whose 'handle'  skewers its own throat, or a  bowl that threatens to bite back.

Gardening Notes  by Marguerite  Welcome newcomers to our  Coast, and all hardy gardeners  waiting for warmer weather.  We can help ourselves by  spreading rapide lime or  dolomite lime on the soil or the  lawn evenly; its purpose is lo  correct or adjust the acid-  alkaline balance of the soil.  Under over acidic conditions,  micro organisms are unable to  effectively decompose composts  and reduce them to a form that  plants can utilize. Lime  sweetens sour soil making it  more productive.  Our coastal winter rain  leaches out and soil needs to be  tested for ideal PH balance,  which is moderate at 6.5.  If moss is a problem, iron  sulphate spread evenly can be  applied now and may have to be  repeated again. When the moss  turns black, rake well and  dispose and burn. Do not put  pn the compost, heap. Tlje ap-  " plication of compost," peat  moss, liquid manure, leaf mold  and any organic material mixed  and spread over the surface will  help effect a cure. Lawns need  sulphate of ammonia diluted  later to improve them.  You may like to grow your  own tomatoes from seed; let  your young ones watch���they  love lo grow things (our future  generation). Plant three seeds in  a pot with moistened sterile soil  (do extras for standbys), cover  wilh clear plastic or glass, and  place on lop of fridge. When  the plants are showing, in about  a week, uncover, bring into  light out of draughts; window  sills arc fine. Plant soluble  starter mix (10:52:17), diluted  and given to plants, aids strong  growth.  Point Grey Chrysanthemum  Association Plant Sale takes  place at 2678 King Edward  Avenue, Vancouver on Saturday, March 23 at 10 am. Sturdy  plants are available.  The Gibsons Garden Club  meeting is being held in the  Marine Room below the library,  on Thursday, March 21 at 7:30  pm" Newcomers' and guests  welcome. Slide show of container gardening is the topic.  Refreshments served.  Coast News, March 18,1991  13.  Rolling through the Rockies  Pages from a  Peter Trower  life log  Next morning, we breakfast  at the same excellent restaurant  and begin the long haul south.  The highway follows the train  tracks for some distance, then  veers off through a long stretch  of flat country, scrubbily-treed  and unprepossessing. We cruise  through the slapdash small  towns of Blue River and Avola,  composed largely of trailer  homes, as drab and cheerless-  seeming as the terrain. Beyond  them, the country begins to  brighten up again.  We stop for lunch at the  pleasantly-rustic farming community of Birch Island. At the  one-time trading post of Little  Fort, we turn west on the Bridge  Lake shortcut and head for the  Cariboo Highway. It is a live  logging road and extremely narrow in places. Fortunately, we  encounter no trucks.  The bumpy gravel comes to a  thankful end and we emerge  near 70 Mile House. A couple  of miles south we see a sign  marked Painted Chasm and  Yvonne turns off. "This place is  worth seeing", she tells me. As  usual, she is right.  Greal ragged red gouge  in Ihe harsh flesh of the ground  trees tightrope walking  the crumbling brink  Brush-bottomed drygulch  carving river long vanished  Poor man's Grand Canyon  lost in Cariboo Country  We stand close together  at the dizzy echoing edge  throwing random pebbles  lhal spin down forever  "My mother once told me  ihis is where a Scotsman  dropped a nickel!"you say  culling ii all down lo size.  Leaving the chasm, we wheel  south again through Clinton  and Cache Creek. Pasturelands,  yellow with dandelions, give  way to sagebrush and arid  brown hills. We are entering  desert country again. We detour  briefly through Ashcroft, bypassed by the highway, planning to possibly stay the night  there. But the bone-dry town  holds no appeal for either of us.  We continue on.  At the town of Spences  Bridge, straddling the Thompson River, we finally call a halt.

After supper we walk across a windy  bridge to the oldest part of  town. There isn't much here except an old hotel where Yvonne  once stayed as a girl. We have  contemplated staying here but  quickly change our minds after  a close look at the weather-  beaten premises. The establishment has definitely seen much  better days. We settle for a  modern motel unit on the  fashionable side of the bridge.  Now it is the final day of our  journey but there are still a few  surprises ahead���particularly  for me. I have never driven  down the Fraser Canyon before. Soon we begin to enter the  daunting gorge. I gawk around  in utter wonderment. It is all I  have been led to expect���and  then some. I haven't been this  impressed since our run through  the Rockies.  Yvonne, of course, is an olii  Canyon hand. She first travelled through it as a girl, long  before the present highway was  built.

Al major  After hearing so many good things about Frances' Dining Lounge in Pender  Harbour, I had to check it out for myself. A friend and I drove up from  Sechelt and found that behind the modest exterior of the Pender Harbour  Hotel lay a gem for restaurant lovers.  The elegant surroundings and wide variety on the menu, including steaks,  seafood and many specialty items, assured me that what I had heard was true.  Their fantastic salad bar, the rival of any I've seen, was included with all dinners, but neither of us could resist the scrumptious sounding appetizers, so we  tried both.  My companion had the scallops and bacon, which were fresh and perfectly  prepared. The deep-fried camembert I selected melted delicately in my mouth.  For the main course I ordered the grilled prawns; they were beautifully  presented on a bed of rice with deliciously baked tomatoes on the side. My  companion chose the smorgasbord, a popular favourite on Tuesday and  Wednesday nights, featuring: pork chops in a creamy mushroom sauce; mashed potatoes; ratatouille; clam linguini; fried chicken; dry garlic spareribs. She  said they were just like Mom used to make, only better because there were so  many choices, and wished they used platters instead of plates.  The total bill, including two cocktails and GST, was $44.80.  <\,  FAMILY DINING  Cafe Pierrot- Comfortable atmosphere wilh warm, helpful staff.

CHANGE IN BUS SCHEDULE j  Sunshine Coast Transit ��� Minibus  IMPORTANT  NOTICE  Commencing Monday, March 4,1991  the following changes will take effect.  Sechelt to Langdale Ferry Terminal  Rugby victory  Gibsons Pigs  persevere  by John Rainer  Darn right! You heard it correctly! Hard work, patience,  and perseverance finally paid  off. The 'Lads in Blue' have  notched Ihe elusive 'W* on the  scoreboard.  Could this be the road to the  finals? I say not, but it is an encouragement for the coming  weeks and for nexl year in particular.  Being at ihe field early and  ready this past Saturday helped  in preparation and non-  confusion (normally the coach's  headache). This week the fellows were all set by the time the  opening whistle blew.  The opposition this game  were Ihe Capilano's from the  North Shore, usually coming to  the Coasl with a strong mobile  side. There was no exception  this lime.  Coming oul from the start,  ihe Caps had most of the open  play, using solid running and  controlling the ball in the loose,  by means of rolling Ihe ruck;  ihey moved about the field with  steady momentum. The locals  were giving it their all and  defensed much belter, especially  close to their own goal-line. The  match was well played, back  and forth, some nice continuous  movement all 'round the pitch.  The Pigs got caught a couple  of times for penalties, giving the -  Capilano kicker the opportunity  to go for goal. He was good on  one and the score was Capilanos  3 - Pigs 0.  Laler in the half, the fluid  play of the Caps drove them  through the (at this point) confused defenses of the Pigs and  they were rewarded with a try.  Convert no good, so Caps 7  -Pigs 0. This being the half-time  score is a fair tribute to the experience the Pigs have gained in  Iheir first season of play, as a  young enthusiastic group.  A few changes were made at  half, and away we went for  another 30 minutes.  Desperately trying to  eliminate the goose egg on the  board, the Pigs pushed forward, pressuring valiantly, only  lo be turned away by good  tackling and that still frustrating, not quite there,  finishing touch.  Quick note: It was not Quinn  Kelly playing for us a couple of  weeks ago. The player's name  was Jim "Q" Nasium. Writer's  error. Back to the game.  Both sides were playing well,  the Capilano's still holding a 7-0  lead, just then the aforementioned "O" Nasium made a  nice break through the opposing  back-line and scooted down the  field. With pressure closing in,  he popped the ball up and into  the in-goal area. As he pursued  it fervently and was about to  burst clear and pounce upon it,  the defender obstructed him  and a penalty try was given.  Convert no good, Caps 7 - Pigs  4.  This was a great day for the  spectators. Holding on to a narrow margin, the Capilano's  tried again and again to increase  their lead. Staunch defense by  the Pigs kept the score the same.

Finally it happened, the break  of the season. On the 15 yard  mark a penalty was called, given  to ihe Pigs, without hesitation.  John "The Vet" Rainier (that's  me) tapped the ball and swung it  lo the blind side to Dean "Dad'  Johnston. Off he went to the  goal-line, just within yards of  the line he was caught, oh no!  With calm experience he fed the  ball out to Warren "Chubby  IB" Hansen who plunged over  for the score in the corner.  Yahoo! Yipee! Conversion no  good, Capilanos 7 - Pigs 8.  Ya!!!!!!!  Still in shock at the time of  writing and trying to figure out,  how? It really is true, the Gibsons' Pigs have a victory!! The  final score remained Capilano's  7 - Pigs 8. Well done boys!

The funds raised are used (variously) for research on  hypertension, kidney stones,  urinary tract infections, as well  as research fellowship and  scholarship programs.  "Ironically the Kidney Foundation has become a victim of  it's own success", noted Foundation spokesman and Past  President, Alfred E. Coll.  "Because the general public is  now aware lhat kidney  transplants have a high success  rate (over 90 per cent), many  feel lhal the problem is solved."

Joel Juhnilnne pkolo  Rubin reports on conference  by Rote Nicholson  Environmental activist  Carole Rubin has just returned  from the BC Environmental  Network Annual Spring Conference at UBC. In an interview  with the Coasl News, she explained that the network is a  group of non-government, nonprofit organizations, which  along with peace groups, native  and labour organizations, was  established 10 years ago to  enable groups that were working on the same issues to share  information and strategy, and  have a support system.  "The network doesn't take  stands on any issue," said  Rubin, "but the caucuses within  the network do take stands. We  have caucuses on forestry,  pesticides, energy, wilderness  and so on."  Rubin, who for several years  has taken an active part in environmental issues at both the  provincial and federal levels, is  on the sterling committee of the  BC Environmental Network,  and of the Forest Caucus, and is  the chairperson of the Pesticide  Caucus.  "There is also the Canadian  Environmental Network of  2500 groups which links up all  of the provincial and regional  networks across the country for  information sharing, and for  formulating political strategies  within our own regions and also  on the national scene. There are  300 groups in the BC network."  Rubin said that most of the  groups, which are largely run by  volunteers, are connected to  each other and to electronic  bulletin boards and electronic  mail.  "The coming together for a  stronger voice is really  strengthening the profile of the  environmental movement and  that is why environmental issues  have been in the forefront in the  last four to five years. Our voice  has been getting stronger as  we've been getting more connected and consolidated.  "Every year we're required to  have an annual general meeting  and we lake advantage of that  to talk about the various issues  and hot spots. All of us have  other jobs and it's all volunteer  time which usually ends up be  ing more than a full time job  would be."

"The process finished on  December 21, 1990 when we  handed in a recommendation to  the Minister of Agriculture. If  the recommendations.- are  followed, (because this is the  usual advisory committee), it  will make for some pretty  positive changes in current  pesticide laws. Part of the  recommendations were to have  a fifty per cent reduction on all  pesticide use by 1995."  Rubin went on to say that  Professor Clarke Binkley, newly appointed Dean of Forestry  at UBC, was one of the  speakers at the forestry caucus  last weekend.  "He basically said that he  recognized that forest practices  in BC had not been managed  well.  "He also said two other interesting things���that we don't  know what we're doing to an  ecosystem when we're clearcutting���but it would probably be  OK to double BC's Allowable  Annual Cut.  "It was amazing that he  could say such a thing in front  of our group where most of us  have advanced degrees, and that  included many RPFs. But he  did agree to accept whoever we  chose as a delegate to sit on the  advisory task force on changes  to the undergraduate curriculum."  Rubin said that other  achievements at the conference  included decisions to put  together a forest watch manual  and check list for groups to  know what to look for when  they're dealing with LRUPs;  and an education package for  schools on sustainable forest  practices.  "And we're all actively working on a stewardship plan for  community control of forests.  We hope to have that in draft  legislation form by the next provincial election and use it as an  election priority."  Rubin was home last week,  but not for long. Last Thursday  she was off to Washington, DC,  where she was to speak at a conference called 'The Future of  Change, a 10th Anniversary  Pesticide Forum of the National  Coalition Against the Misuse of  Pesticides in the US.'  "People from all over the  world are coming," she said.  "I've been asked to speak on  "The Canadian Experience, the  Effect of Grass Roots Activism  on a Community, Regional and  Federal Level'. I'U also be  moderating a workshop with  B.B. Daniels, editor of Organic  Gardening magazine.  "But I'll be home in time for  the Thursday meeting (on  forestry) in Roberts Creek."

SCRD Briefs  GOSPEL ROCK UPDATE  At its regular meeting last Thursday, the SCRD released  a summary of 106 letters endorsing the idea of acquiring  the Gospel Rock property and creating a public park. Fifty  letters emanated from Gibsons and Area E, 41 from  Elphinstone students.  Mayor Eric Small of Gibsons rejected the perception  that the letters resulted from disparate individuals, prompted to write solely by their own initiative. "It is a result of a  letter writing campaign!" Small insisted, adding, "That it  (the SCRD) received 108 letters in a two day period indicates...an organized campaign...I'm not opposed to a  letter writing campaign, I just want this on the record."  Also for the record, Small reiterated the fact that, a pro  pos to the Gospel Rock "campaign", "Gibsons does not  have money for this project."  YACHT CLUB APPROVAL IMMINENT  In a letter to the SCRD from the Coast Guard regarding  the application by the Seattle Yacht Club for approval of  their existing marina float facilities in Garden Bay, Acting  Director General J. Lorquet informed the board, "It is our  intention to proceed with formal approval within the next  few weeks."  Lorquet said that the Coast Guard is "satisfied" that  the concerns of "all adjacent property owners" have been  satisfactorily addressed. "Ms Daly to the north is provided unimpeded access to her property and the yacht club  has reacted positively to our recommendation by restricting vessel moorage on their southern float to respect Mr.  Lewis' access to his float to the south."  Chairman Peggy Connor noted that the Coast Guard  "are not doing (in this letter) what they said they would do  during our meeting with them on the site."  Director McGillivray noted, "What we really object to  (here) is the process. It's indicative of what will be coming  down the pike."  Another director suggested that the SCRD "act immediately by going to the Ministry of Lands to find out  about...jurisdiction. We are opening a can of worms."  Ms Daly is off the Coast and not available for comment.  GREEN BOX SUMMIT CONFERENCE  The SCRD agreed to call for and convene a meeting to  deal with the problems arising from the location and  number of green postal boxes along the Coast. Directors  cited safety hazards, inconvenience, and vandalism as being among the side effects of the way the boxes are  located.  Representatives of the RCMP, Ministry of Highways,  and the various postmasters and postmistresses along the  Coast will be invited to attend.  Sechelt Alderman and SCRD Representative Bob  Wilson expressed gratitude to the board for involving  themselves in a cause he has long championed.

Sechelt Briefs   by Stuart Bursaidf   The construction of Wilson Creek Plaza has received third  reading at a special Sechelt council, held March 13 with the  only opposing vote coming from Mayor Nancy MacLarty.  However, Alderman Peggy Wagner voiced concerns regarding the appropriateness of the signage to be used on the project.  "1 have concerns about the neon signs," she said. "They  seem a little excessive for such a small plaza."  "We have no sign by-law," responded MacLarty, "so they  can have whatever they want in their windows."  The construction to Wharf and Cowrie Streets, scheduled  to be completed by the end of March (to allow the funding to  come under the provincial government's 1990 fiscal budget)  will not commence until sometime in June, according to  Alderman Bob Wilson.  Wilson told council members that the Department of  Highways has placed the blame for the postponement on the  weather and plans for the project have not been finalized.  "There is going to be a dramatic increase in the user fee for  sewer, in the Sechelt area," said Alderman Bob Wilson.  Citing an increase to the municipality of approximately  $127,000 for the treatment of sewage, Wilson said, "The  users will have to pay."  Wilson pointed out that a previous surplus of $33,000 in  the "sewer fund" had been spent the year before to offset the  increased cost of sewage treatment. He said now that the  money was gone, the residents of Sechelt would now have to  shoulder the burden in a more direct manner.  Alderman Bob Wilson said the District of Sechelt had  received encouragement from the Department of Highways  to re-apply for a grant for the improvement of Porpoise Bay  Road from the Indian Band Land to Allen Road.  The 30 per cent grant, turned down in the past, could now  be approved based on changes made by the district regarding  the widening of that section.  The Sechelt Council will solicit the help of Chatelech  Secondary's student council in combating the litter problem  along the road leading to the school.  The recommendation, made to Environmental Committee  Chairman Peggy Wagner by Alderman Doug Reid would invite a delegate from the student council to attend an upcoming Sechelt council meeting to discuss the problem.  "Better to deal with the students than the hierarchy,"  noted Reid, "those are responsible kids."  Continued from page 13  early trips when the road was a  giddy ribbon crawling around  the rock bluffs, hundreds of  feet above the river���narrowing  to a single lane at many spots.  To illustrate her point, she stops  at the lower end of one of the  eight tunnels that were built to  take the kinks our of the  highway.  A section of ihe original road  still clings to the outer wall of  the rocky bulge through which  the tunnel runs. It is unbelievably narrow and precarious. I  try to imagine driving over such  a mountain-goat ledge���and  shudder. "Thank God for progress", I comment.  We trundle on through Boston Bar and reach the aerial  tramway at Hell's Gate. Yvonne  pulls over again and gives me a  quizzical look. 1 know damn  well what is coming next.  lo be continued...

It was fined  $50,000 on ihis count.  "The 1989 exceedances occurred before the mill was  modernized,"   noted   HSPP  President Bill Hughes, adding  that, "Howe Sound's new  clarifier and secondary effluent  treatment system have been an  outstanding success in achieving  effluent quality that is consistently better than our permit  requirements, so we decided lo  put ihe past behind us as quickly as possible by clearing the  slate of old charges."  Commenting on the spill of  lasl September, Hughes says,  "That was an isolated incident  that occurred during the startup  phase of the new mill. We have  made mechanical changes to ensure it will not happen again."  Hughes acknowledged lhat  the   company   had   problems  meeting its permit requirements  with the old mill but said he was  confident that these problems  would not occur at the modernized mill.
