 LEGISLATIVE LIBRARY  Parliament Buildings  Victoria, B.C. V8V 1X4  91.8  The Sunshine  Published on the Sunshine Coast    25'per copy on news stands February 4,1991       Volume 45      Issue 5  by Rose Nicholson  The Foreshore Advisory Task  Force has tackled the controversial issue of introduction of  Atlantic salmon into, local  waters. The January 29 meeting  was attended by officials of the  federal Department of Fisheries  and Oceans (DFO), the provincial Ministry of Agriculture and  Fisheries (MAF), the provincial  Ministry of the Environment  (MOE), members of the Sunshine Coast Aquaculture  Association (SCAA) and several  interested members of the  public.  Giving a quick background  of the history of previous attempts to introduce Atlantic  salmon to BC waters, Dr. Alan  Castledine of MAF told the audience that the first experiment  took place in 1905, when several  rivers on the mainland and Vancouver Island were stocked.  Several further attempts were  made up until the early I930's,  but none were successful.  In the US, several similar  projects have been attempted,  with only a slightly better success rate. A population of  Atlantic salmon has been maintained at a hatchery in Oregon  for nearly 50 years and the progeny is used for stocking a few  trophy lakes. In Washington the  National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) has grown Atlantic  salmon since 1973 and provided  eggs to private growers. In  1985/86 Minter Creek in  Washington was stocked with  30,000 smolts, but none were  recovered nor did any return to  spawn, and California has a  limited farm program.  It wasn't until 1985 that  another attempt was made, and  Atlantic salmon eggs were imported for the aquaculture industry in BC. Between 1985 and  1991, nearly 7.4 million eggs  were imported from Scotland,  the US, and New Brunswick,  Some of the first eggs imported during this period were  raised in Hotham Sound, and  over the past five years a  number of farms on the Sunshine Coast have raised Atlantic  salmon. Approved management  plans for holding 410,000  Atlantic salmon with a total annual production of 650 tonnes  are currently held by eight  "grow-out" farms on the Sunshine Coast, though two of  these firms are in receivership,  and others may not achieve  their approved capacity.  Also being reared here are 1.5  million Atlantic salmon eggs  and juveniles, all of which are  progeny of Atlantic salmon  reared in BC.  Although the Atlantic salmon  is just as susceptible as its  Pacific cousins to the deadly  algae blooms heterosigma and  chaetoceros, their faster grow-  out rate makes them attractive  to fish farmers who can produce  a marketable fish in about half  the time it takes to rear the  Pacific species like coho and  chinook.  Although sport and commercial fishermen often catch  Atlantic salmon which appear  to be recent escapees from fish  farms, the imported fish do not  appear to have established  themselves in the wild in BC. In  1988, 206 of these fish were  caught in Washington waters  and 106 off the coast of BC. By  1990, these numbers were down  to eight in Washington and two  in BC, with no reports of any  fish reluming to streams.  Castledine said that one of  the most frequently expressed  fears, that Atlantic salmon  would introduce new fish  diseases to the Pacific coast, is  without foundation, "No  known disease agents have been  introduced to the province," he  said, "despite the transfer of  large numbers of eggs of Atlantic salmon.  "Only diseases that are found  in BC salmon and trout stocks  have ever been detected in  Atlantic salmon in the north  east Pacific."  He went on to say that under  the Fisheries Act, strict regulations govern the importation  and culture of salmon eggs. A  detailed history of parent stock  Please turn to page 17  At Rockwood Lodge  Local governments  hold conference  by Jan Michael Sherman  Rockwood was the site last  Thursday evening for the first  of three yearly, intergovernmental "summit  meetings" designed to confront,  discuss, and debate issues of  common concern.  Representatives of the Town  of Gibsons, the Sechelt Indian  Band, the Municipality of  Sechelt, and the Sunshine Coast  Regional District met for two-  and-a-half hours, "marching on  through" without a break.  The agenda, at least on  paper, was intimidating. An  even two dozen items constituted a virtual smorgasbord  of issues, all completely or partially inter-related in terms of  the political entities represented  around the table.  Sechelt hosted the meeting  which was chaired by Mayor  Nancy MacLarty. Setting the  theme���and tone��� she commented enthusiastically on how  "this is all about sharing;  ...about talking together...  cooperating on areas of mutual  concern." And, indeed, a  number of the participants were  to later remark at how smoothly  and genially the evening had  proceeded���given the politically  disparate make-up of those in  attendance.  The matter of a cooperatively run dug pound came  under discussion briefly.  MacLarty noted a suitable site  in the Field Road area, suggesting that a long-term lease  might be worked out. "We  want to get together on dogcat-  cher services...our bylaw officer  doesn't have proper  equipment."  "We have an excellent  fellow," offered SCRD Chairman Peggy Connor. MacLarty  said agreement had to be reached on the site and "then costs  can be worked out."  Chief Tom Paul indicated  SIB interest in the project. "We  have the same problem as (the)  other governments." The group  agreed that the next step is a  "meeting of the minds" of all  parties concerned this month to  discuss details.  The regulation of live-  aboards was "one of my major  concerns," according to Gibsons mayor Eric Small. Asked  by MacLarty whether Gibsons  had its own Harbour Authority,  Small replied in the negative.  "We do," said MacLarty,  "and we have much more say  over regulations... We have to  draw up some rules...I hope it  will give us full authority over  liveaboards."  "The last Gibsons council  looked at the issue," Small  noted, adding that they decided  against pursuing an independent Harbour Authority. Gibsons Clerk-Administrator Lorraine Goddard informed Small  that "We have much information available at our municipal  hall."  Touching briefly on the Local  Round Table on the Environment and the Economy, SCRD  Director Brett McGillivray told  the meeting,"We've asked for  one of the Round Table's  province-wide meetings to be  held here. In April. With Stan  (Dixon) on the Round Table we  have something of an 'inside  track.' It's a great opportunity  to give (our) input." The director added that "There are 29  members of the Round Table in  BC. In any given area they provide seven to eight members."  "It is a very impressive cross-  section of people. I'm very supportive," said Eric Small.  Tom Paul furnished an update on the progress of his  band's new District Building.

Golding on the Greater Vancouver watershed.  Golding was commissioned  last year by the Sunshine Coast  Regional District (SCRD) to do  a study of the effects of logging  on the Chapman and Gray  Creeks watershed on the Coast  and concluded that logging  would not be detrimental to the  local water supply.  Abrams claims that  Golding's report on the Greater  Vancouver - watershed is incomplete because his study involved only the Seymour  Watershed, where the soils are  different than the Coquitlam  and Capilano watersheds in the  remaining parts of the watershed district.  "It is imperative," said  Abrams, "that the public  understand that Dr. Golding's  conclusions and research are  controversial and open to  serious challenge."  Abrams explained that the  Greater Vancouver Watershed  District (GVWD) has complete  control over the watershed.  "However, the GVWD has  engaged, and continues to  engage in commercial clearcut  logging within the watershed  areas," said Abrams.  "As part of its logging operations, the GVWD also engages  in extensive road building.  Therefore, the true issues which  must be determined, insofar as  these watershed areas are concerned, are whether logging  these areas affects water quality  and what practices should be  followed in order to ensure  water of the highest possible  quality..."  Abrams maintains that  Golding did not take into consideration previous studies, and  cites research done by Dr. Colin  O'Loughlin in 1973, "which  unequivocally concluded that  the number of landslides was  approximately four lo 10 times  greater, and fhe quantity of  landslide debris was approx-..  imately two to four times  greater, per square kilometre of  clear-cut forest when compared  lo the same area of uncut  forest."

Both locally and in ihe somewhat  vague future provincial plans it is a disturbing scenario.  There has been undoubtedly a great upswelling in environmental awareness in recent years. A plethora of  special inlcresl groups have formed wilh special targets  and since there is a tendency lor like lo seek like and the  members of such groups lo have converse wilh their  fellows only, ihere may be an over-confidence aboul the  progress lhal is being made in dealing with Ihe enduring  and accumulating difficulties of ihe environment.  Bui our story on toxic waste disposal seems lo indicate  lhal the progress is more seeming than actual. Industry  pays lip service and environmentalists congratulate  themselves on their enlightenment, bin wc continue lo  spew poisons into our air and water as though there were  no tomorrow, and perhaps there won't be.  Until the urgency of the situation is widespread  throughout the public and governments are compelled lo  make environmental care a constant priority, then there  will be grave and growing cause for concern. Awareness  must be widespread and followed by steadfast action If the  growing problems arc going to be rectified and a future  assured.  Report received  A consultant has been hired and has studied and has  reported and we find lhal ihe future of recreation on the  Sunshine Coast should be centralised in Roberts Creek in  Ihe Cliff Gilker Park area. Ah, yes, progress.  Is il 15 years ago that a joint recreation facility was first  proposed and narrowly defeated. What has our consultant  told us that Larry Labonte, Cliff Gilker, ct al., didn't  know back then?  Meanwhile, we have an Ice Arena in Sechelt difficult to  reach even for Sechell residents, and an inadequate swimming pool in Gibsons, itself a consianl drain on the lax-  payer and too small to recoup by hosting occasional swim  meets. Perhaps we are ready now for ihe consultant's findings.   from our files   We Remember When  5 YEARS AGO  There was jubilation in the Sechelt Indian Band  offices when the news came that Indian Affairs Minister  David Crombie will be tabling the Sechelt self,  government legislation in the House of Commons on  February 5. The legislative package in no way abrogates  any aboriginal rights which are in the Canadian Const!-  tion said financial advisor Gordon Anderson.  Provincial mirror legislation will appear before the  Cabinet in Victoria on the same day. "There'll be a great  celebration pretty soon" said Chief Stan Dixon. "The  biggest potlatch we've ever had."  10 YEARS AGO  The nascent meeting of the newly formed  Aquaculture Association of BC was held on January 31  at St. Vincent's Bay.  Mayor Goddard tells the Coast News that her and her  council's position on the land freeze imposed by the  zoning of the Agricultural Land Reserve is that it will impede growth and development within the Village of Gibsons' boundaries.  Confirmation has been given that 3.7 acres have been  dedicated to become the Daniel Point Waterfront Park  (after Daniel Pender) by the developers of the 160 acre  subdivision in Lees Bay.  20 YEARS AGO  The Henry Road letter from Area E residents was turned over to Mayor Wally Peterson asking the Intentions  of the Village of Gibsons regarding rumoured extension  plans.  "It is estimated that the development of the district  will be such that by 1980 it will require the entire in-flow  of Chapman Creek for domestic use alone" said Director Cliff Thorold, outlining reasons why the Regional  Board could not grant a water permit to gravel operators  in the Sechelt areas.  30 YEARS AGO  Canadian Forest Products announces a $500,000  flash dryer plant for the Port Mellon mill.  Legislative members applauded Tony Gargrave's announcement that the Sechelt Indian Band had donated  land for a hospital.  40 YEARS AGO  Wally Graham's resignation as Water Caretaker for  the Village of Gibsons will take effect immediately.  "The wages offered are a personal insult," said  Graham. "I could make more money baby-sitting." The  amount offered was $1200 a year with opportunity to  make more by means of an hourly wage.

SUBSCRIPTION RATES  1 Year IM; 6 Months am Foraipn i Year MO   Cumulative decay  by Jan Michael Sherman  I have never been to Athens.  Then, come lo think of it, I've  never been lo a lot of places I've  had a hankering to visit.  I was ruminating about  Athens and pollution the other  day. An off-beat pairing unless,  like me, you'd been reading the  highly-entertaining profile of  Melina Mercouri which appears  in the current issue of Vanity  Fair.  It was written by Maureen  Orth, an erstwhile classmate of  mine al UCLA, and now a  features writer of some prominence. At one point, almost in  passing, Maureen notes that  Alliens' "...incomparable  repository of classical architecture...has withered away more  in the last 2$ years than in all  the lime since its creation in 300  B.C."  Although she'd probably not  In A Nutshell  intended to, Maureen succeeded  in abruptly and entirely diverting my interest and attention  away from the heroically  pathetic La Mercouri���herself a  certified symbol of all thai ever  was and still remains Greek, a  feminine counterpart lo Zorba  only slightly less arresting that  the Acropolis itself.  I was aghast. Since 1965 more  damage has been done to ancient Athenian architecture by  ordinary, everyday, garden  variety pollution than was accomplished since Ihe Parthenon  itself was constructed?? Mercouri's angst over losing her bid  for mayor of Athens suddenly  seemed a petty and whining  remonstrance over the vagaries  of one aging actress's personal  fate.  Now, hey, lest; one smugly  imagine thai I have (somehow)  just discovered the menace of  pollution���in Athens, Greece,  Athens, Georgia, or virtually  any place name your finger  chooses to stab at on a spinning  globe of this black-and-blue  planet���please to keep your  critical claws sheathed for Ihe  nonce.  For the past 20 years I have  lived in Los Angeles, Ihe promised land of emphysema and  First Stage Smog Alerts, where  the pulmonary specialist is even  more   revered   than   ihe   tv  weatherperson who announces  the day's "Pollution Count." I  doubt I will ever be able lo erase  from my memory banks Ihe  numerous occasions when I flew  into LA, and sank like a spoon  into chocolate pudding through  those mustard gas yellow-and-  brown layers of chemical death  which blanket the City of the  Angels like some custom-  tailored shroud.  Pollution has become a  catchall word, and rightly so,  for the myriad ways in which  humanity fouls its own nest.  But, for me at least, air pollution has always seemed the most  odious, the most scarifyingly  pervasive. No doubt Saddam  Hussein's promise to biochemically pollute the air with  his spores of certain death has  renewed my concerns for the air  I breath���despite the fact I am  6000 miles from the Gulf.  Sure, we continue to foul our  oceans, lakes, rivers, and even,  God help us, our drinking  water. But somehow, sporting  lungs rather than gills, Ihe idea  of air pollution remains uppermost in my consciousness. And  this is emanating from a human  being who exposed his only  child to 20 years of the highest-  grade pollution this side of  Athens!  Still I am haunted by the ac-  celerative   process   which  Maureen Orth highlighted in  her piece on Mercouri. Since  1965 air pollution has wreaked  more quiet, virtually unchecked  havoc, than it has in two-and-a-  half bleeping millenia!  And pollution is entirely, utterly ubiquitous. It is also nonselective, affecting inanimate  and animate objects alike. Not  so long ago to "be polluted"  meant to be drunk, but I  haven't heard Ihe term used that  way in, oh, 25 years. The collective unconscious works in  decidedly strange ways, usually  on behalf of ignorance and  avoidance.  So, in 25 years, in 2015, what  will the collective Kodachrome  of humanity feature? Will every  man, woman, and child be  sporting gas masks whenever  they go out���even if no local  Saddam is making threats? Will  picnic lunches be inhaled  through a straw? Will forrps of  shaking hands take on sublimated, sexual significance?  Or will everyone save the  price and bother of the mask,  concluding that what there is to  see and interact with outside  just ain't worth seeing anymore.  And will Athens, the Taj  Mahal, and the Skookumchuck  be available only through one's  neighbourhood video store.  Stay tuned. But don't hold  your breath.  Free publishing idea  by S. Nutter  An idea we had around the  end of the sixties was for a  paper that would come out nationally, primarily for people  who were retired. In the States  Ihere were three papers doing  this, and they had a combined  circulation of something like 10  million.  So we thought, like hey, that  would be in Canada something  like a million.  Most of this Club of Rome  type thinking was going down in  a pub in Toronto called Ihe  Evercne (known generally as the  Ncverclean). We were all freelancing at various this's and  that's, and would meet there  between two and five in the  afternoons, when all the  workers (well anyway, people  with jobs) were absent.  Strangely perhaps, I don't  think any of us were ex-  newspapermen. I had, however,  not long before started a paper  called (now) Engineering, which  mailed nationally to 93,000  engineers of all sorts from St.  Johns' to Port Alberni.  Somehow or other a partner  and I had kept this thing going  through the first trying year  before you can get acceptance  (and general advertising) from  the Canadian Audit Bureau of  Circulation, and then we'd sold  it for a less than munificent  sum.  The paper for the retired  however, seemed to offer much  more, and almost infinite scope.  When you come down to it, the  first natural division you can  make in society, any society, is  between the generations: the  Young, the Engaged and the  Retired. It cuts across all other  divisions of race and creed and  social status etc. At that time  the societies of the West were  heavily oriented to the concerns  of the Young. The Engaged  were just thrashing along there,  and the Retired were hardly  heard from.  What a hopeless mish-mash  of a society we thought. Here  were these sprouts, barely  sprouting, taking up all the talking space, and here were these  seasoned and experienced and  possibly wise members simply  shunted off to do square dancing at the Old Folks,  The paper, we thought,  would give them a voice, and reestablish in the country their  sense of humour (pre Yuk  Yuk). As the country, as we saw  it then, became almost totally  beaurocratized, the paper of the  Retired would be perhaps the  only one with telling stories of  the 'now it can be told' kind.  But humour of course, humour  would be the touchstone.  There was no humourous  paper, no Punch no New  Yorker, in Canada, and as we  saw it, it would have been  almost impossible to introduce  one. 'Third Generation' our  choice for name, might however  have made it.  As we envisioned it, the letters of 'Third Generation'  crawled across the top of the  front page as spines of a cartooned dragon. The dragon's  face was sleepy but sly, and a  snort perhaps came out of a  nostril.  Humour is an essential part  of the life of anyone in the third  generation. It is the principle  thing there is that works against  the dreaded tendency to pre-  fossilization.  But humour remains undefined, and people who attempt to do so may be confined  to a new circle in Dante's Inferno. Irish humour is not the  same as Jewish humour.  English humour is often not  understood by the French, and  vice-versa. German humour is  something else again. North  American humour today is  often a desperate grabbing for  an anything-at-all one-liner.  Our thought of course, was  that the essential humour of the  third generation would carry  over these disparate current  modes. We thought the paper,  mailing out initially to receivers  of pension cheques, would  within not too long a time,  reach the news stands and find  an interest among the rest of the  public.  Nothing wrong with that  right? So what happened...The  people we thought natural  backers for this kind of thing  blanched at the first mention ol  'newspaper' and rapidly faded  away. In the Stales a senate inquiry into the three papers for  the retired threw our departments 'for the aged' into a  flurry. Things had to be  postponed.  Meanwhile at the Everene  there were other things on our  table. Quite a lot of time had  gone into working up an idea  for a 24-hour TV news channel.  There was the idea for training  native people to make their own  information films. There was  the idea for a Canadian short  story series for TV (film),  directed on an almost competitive basis by the world's best  directors���Kurosawa, Bergman, Lean et al. Well, you can  see, we were not just sitting  around there.  But "Third Generation' just  lapsed, among a number of  others. Among a number of  others it's still not a bad idea. If  anyone's really interested I still  think I know exactly how to  make it go.

(LetU.iA. to- the ���ditol  Gibsons should enhance, not destroy assets  Coast News, February 4,1991  Editor:  Recently the fate of one of  Gibsons' most historically important buildings has been  thrust into the public arena. The  'Old Doc Inglis House' is being  offered for sale. Currently there  is an offer on the land alone,  apparently with plans to  develop this site and adjoining  parcels into condo style housing. This would necessitate the  removal or destruction of the 78  year old house.  It disturbs me that such a  major change to the heart of the  town can occur without any  orderly process of planning or  public input. The social, cultural and economic ramifications of such a change will affect us all.  Built in 1913, the Inglis  house, known in its heyday as  Stonehurst, was Dr. Inglis'  home, clinic and the village  pharmacy. Dr. Inglis' sons Alan  and Hugh also practised  medicine out of the house. One  can easily imagine how central  the house was to the community.  The house was also the center  of much political controversy in  its era, providing shelter for the  family of J.S.Woodsworth during the turbulent formative  years of the CCF party.  Architecturally, the Inglis  house is a fine example of the  Craftsman style which was  popular between 1890 and 1930.  Much less ornate or pretentious  than the preceding Victorian  period, the Craftsman house  could nevertheless achieve  stateliness through grand scale  as is the case with the Inglis  house, indicating that this was  indeed the home of a prominent  citizen.  The preservation of heritage  buildings such as the Inglis  house is important for the  development of community  identity and continuity. Old  houses enable us to remember  previous generations and important events of the past.  In the case of the ongoing  process of growth in Gibsons  and lower Gibsons in particular,  we might reflect on what it is  that makes it an attractive place  to live in and what is it that attracts the thousands of tourists  that visit each vear?  The appeal of lower Gibsons  lies in its retention of a traditional coastal village ambience  of which elements are its setting,  pace of life and architecture.  The result is a feeling of comfort and security, just what we  and every jaded city dweller  crave.  Upper Gibsons, on the other  hand, set against one of the  most stunning mountain backdrops available anywhere, is a  fine example of strip development devoid of any clear  aesthetic planning with the  resultant charm of a lesser East  Whalley.  To sum all of this up, I feel  that Gibsons must recognize  and build upon its assets, not  destroy them. The remaining  few heritage buildings that Gibsons has are extremely important in maintaining a cohesive  sense of community. They must  be preserved and also kept on  Wondering about the war  their original sites not only for  continuity but also to be eligible  for funding towards restoration  costs from the Heritage Trust.  It is up to the Town Council  to press for heritage designation  and protection of the Inglis  house. This may be achievable  through either public ownership  on the merits of developing its  self sufficiency through various  possible community uses, or to  be tastefully incorporated into  private development.  The latter option having successfully been undertaken in  several BC communities where  the surrounding infill construction is patterned on and compliments the design of the  heritage building.

Rodvik.  The accompanying and wonderfully twisted drawing, was  Ralph Steadman���like in it's  depiction of truth amid  hypocrisy. The Men-in-the-Suits  have lobbied in the boardrooms  of America for this war and are  projecting it as an unreality, a  harmless video game to a  shallow USA Today audience.  Let's not forget the Nixon administration initiated the West's  arming of Iraq, wilh CIA prompting, to possibly offset the  increasingly erratic behaviour of  their once obedient puppet  regime, Iran. The Shah's overthrow in 1979 brought a return  to ancient customs and ways in  the Ayatollah Khomeni.  Were the US collectively able  to write a book on the sordid affair, it would not be called  "How to win friends and influence enemies." After an  eight year war between Iran and  Iraq, most of the people still  have a deeper hatred for the US,  than for the enemy they had  been fighting. At the risk of  sounding like Andy Rooney,  Gee, why is that?  When the Ayatollah called  the US "The Great Satan" and  held Americans hostage, was it  by mere coincidence that they  were released shortly after the  Reagan   inauguration?  Was it a coincidence that the  great "American Hero" Ollie  North began selling arms to  Iran, then in a protracted struggle with Iraq? Was it a coincidence that 269 marines were  killed in Beirut by (in all probability) the very munitions that  Ollie sold from the NSA office  in the basement of the White  House?

Jan Mir/furl Sherman photo  Watershed consultant's  research questioned  Continued from page 1  Services Research for Terrasol  Revegetation Erosion Control  Lid.  According to Carr, "forest  road construction and timber  harvesting operations can accelerate surface erosion and  mass wasting on other watershed resources, particularly  water quality and fishery values.  Through proper predevelop-  ment planning and the use of  high operational standards,  some of these problems can be  alleviated, though not totally  controlled. Unforeseen erosion  and land stability problems inevitably arise during and more  often, after forest development."  Dr. Jack A. Stanford, Director of the Flathead Lake  Biological Station at the University of Manitoba, in a letter to  Abrams, stated "Concerning  the value of old growth forest, it  is simply a fact that catchment  hydrology, chemistry and  biology change significantly  after deforestation."  Abrams also pointed out thai  Golding's own research shows  nitrogen levels three time normal in water downstream from  a clearcut area. "It can hardly  be suggested," said Abrams,  "lhal increasing our nitrogen  levels enhances, or even maintains, the quality of our walcr."  In a letter to the SCRD, (he  Elphinstone Electors' Association expressed "apprehension  and dismay" al the "disastrous  slate of the Chapman Creek  watershed" and asked "that  legal action be taken by the  SCRD lo ensure that those  originally responsible for the  landslides, i.e. the Ministry of  Forests, should take full financial responsibility lo have the  slide area stabilized���to SCRD  standards, not theirs."  The letter, referring to  Abram's report, went on to say  that "In our opinion, the $4000  the SCRD spent for the report  of Dr. Douglas Golding...has  now proven lo be inconclusive  and of questionable value" and  points out "that the SCRD is  responsible for ensuring that the  residents of the Sunshine Coast  have an ample supply of clean,  pure water," and steps should  be taken lo prevent any further  logging in the Chapman Creek  watershed.  "In the past 20 years the  Ministry of Forests has proven  incapable of adequately preserving British Columbia's wafer-  sheds."  Continued from page 1  "Hopefully it will be completed  by the end of March. Once the  Board of Directors is in place,  staffing will take place. We've  got 5,000 square feet of commercial space...we've contacted  Capilano College who want to  hold certain classes in our facility. We're frying lo set up a community college so students from  the Sunshine Coasl won't have  to go lo Vancouver for courses.  If Ihis is successful, we have  available 6-7,000 square feel  available for expansion."  When Paul mentioned that  ihe new SIB ihreaire would  fealure movies "two or three  nights a week," Mayor Small  was quick to ask if il would  compete with the Gibsons  movie ihcaire. Peggy Connor  diplomatically suggested thai "I  think they'll help one another."  The issue of coast libraries  and their serious problems came  under some discussion, wilh  Gibsons alderman Margaret  Morrison pointing out thai,  "Eventually what you want is a  regional library which (this)  Feeney report says there is not  ihe population...to warrant al  ihis lime."  "There are reasons why these  (shared) things don't fly," said  MacLarty. "Filly per cent of  Sechell (library) users are  Regional District people, but  Sechell taxpayers pay for it...If  we could gel over terrilorialism  and share...if we could  somehow do this. Maybe I'm  naive, but the bottom line is a  library." A meeting spear-  headed by Sechelt aldermen  Joyce Kolibas and Peggy  Wagner is to be held involving  the other governments lo explore whal might be done vis a  vis ihe library situation.  In reaction to the Professional Environmental Recreation Consultants' recent proposal for the Sunshine Coast,  the gathering agreed that "...  due to the very major changes  being proposed" a meeting on  this subject should be convened  "very soon."  The question of expanded  mini-bus service was addressed  with Peggy Connor speaking in  an upbeat way about the progress made to date. "We'll be  getting our third bus this year.  They (BC Transit) promised  us���putting it in writing!"  What manner of route and  timetable changes might ensue  from the addition of the new  bus was of particular interest to  Nancy MacLarty. When Connor noted that the mini-bus goes  up to Sandy Hook and  Tuwanek "...acoupleof daysa  week," MacLarty, who apparently felt this was inadequate, chuckled "If you want to  shop Tuesday���you could gel  back (home) on Thursday?"  "We're hoping for evening  service and extended runs," said  Connor, adding thai "BC Transit is surprised at how the minibus service has developed.  Thai's why we're getting the  third bus... Now we're asking  for a fourth and fifth."  When it came to confronting  the issue of under what circumstances and in what manner  natural gas delivery would  manifest itself on the Sunshine  Coast, Peggy Connor evinced  some optimism, which was not  entirely shared. Having attended a recent hearing of the BC  Utilities Commission, Connor  recounted how impressed���and  heartened��� she was by the  serious, no-nonsense manner in  which the gas company's  representatives were confronted  by the Commission.  Eric Small was optimistic that  the BC Utilities Commission  will make ICG Utilities/VIGAS  "perform" within certain  parameters. Small said he  favoured an approach which involved dealing with the gas  company non-confront-  ationally, hoping that suasion  and good faith negotiation can  win at least part of the day.  day.  Nancy MacLarty noted thai  some Sechelt residents have  been registering complaints  about noise coming from the  Sechell Aggregates gravel  operation. "Noise is coming  from the pit at two in the morning,"   the   Mayor   reported.  "People are bothered now���in  winter���when windows are  closed...bound to be worse in  warm weather. I understand  there's an application (by  Sechell Aggregates) to go to a  24-hour shift. It hasn't yet been  granted."  "Complaints are coming to  the Indian Band, too," said  Band councillor Ben Pierre.  "We informed the Aggregates.  They said they'd look after it.  You should talk to them."  Brett McGillivray informed  ihe meeting that a March date  was being sought for a Provincial Emergency Preparedness  orientation meeting to be held  in Sechelt. Squamish, Lion's  Bay, Vancouver, and Powell  River  ("who  modelled  their  plan after ours, then modified  it") are being invited.  McGillivray also mentioned  that the so-called "Ferry  Forum" which will take a  "comprehensive look"���and  discuss���the entire commuter  ferry system on the Sunshine  Coast is still on, but that a  suitable date is still being  sought.

These areas directly affect the soil, water, and  vegetation around the two  watersheds of Flume Creek and  Clough Creek, with a couple of  unnamed creeks also affected,  including my own sweet water  creek which sings as it flows by.  A few years ago Cough Creek  was the site of a major washout  due to poor logging practices  and heavy rains which caused  property damage and threatened lives. Is soil erosion, poor  water quality, habitat demolition including salmon spawning  areas, and spoiled viewsheds  among the ruin we must accept  to harvest the wealth of timber  here in Roberts Creek, the Sunshine Coast and BC?  The residents of Crow Road, in Roberts Creek, are gearing up to  protest a proposed five-year forestry cut-block plan in and  around the creeks they call their watershed. Tuesday, residents,  led by Donna Shugar, foreground, and Jan Brinton, loured one  of the blocks with Mark Wareing, a staff forester with the  Western Canada Wilderness Committee, lo determine on their  own what recommendations Ihey could bring to a proposed  February 13 meeting at Ihe Roberts Creek Hall.  ���Joel Johnatone photo  SUNNYCRESTMALl  HIGHWAY 101, UPPER GIBSONS  Announcing Our New  Smoke-Free Environment!  In accordance with Gibsons Bylaw #622 smoking Is  restricted in the Mall to sections of: Gussy's  Snackery, Henry's Bakery and Willee's Restaurant.  Come on in for a breath of fresh air!  The group Forest Watch suggests that through alternative  forest practices which rely on  selective logging techniques,  timber can be carefully  harvested so as to protect the  environment. The valuable soil  upon which the future ability of  the forests to produce wealth  and jobs depends, is protected  by always leaving trees to shelter  and secure it. When the habitat  remains, the species in it thrive,  the view continues to be  beautiful, and the water runs  pure. Forestry does not consider  the deleterious effects on environment including future  trees, people, and other business  when it compares alternatives to  clearcutting. Join Forest Watch  for a public meeting on  Wednesday, February 13, at 8  pm, at the Roberts Creek Hall  to discuss new solutions to  clearcutting.  Maps of the proposed clear-  cuts will be posted in the window of the library midday  Saturday, February 2 until  Tuesday evening, February 5,  and again Saturday, February 9  until Tuesday, February 12.  FEELINGS ON THIS WAR  A meeting to share feelings  about the Middle East War was  held last Saturday in the  Roberts Creek Hall. Peter Light  and Roger Lagasse organized  the gathering of around 75  young people into a circle and  passed the intricately carved  talking stick donated by the  Sechelt tribe around so all might  contribute. Concern was expressed about Canada's aggressive role and young men  said they were uneasy about  possible conscription. The  group wanted to meet again.  The next meeting is this Saturday, at 8:00 pm, at St. Aidan's  Hall in Roberts Creek.  THOSE WINTER BLUES  As entertainment and a fund-  raising event, the Winter Blues  Fair last Sunday at the Hall was  definitely a supreme success.  Tables for the fair, although  pricey, sold out early and attendance was around 300. Report^..-  of retail sales were generally  good.  The Valentine decorations  and theme enveloped one immediately upon entering.  Delicate wreaths with flowers  and hearts were an excellent gift  choice for one's Valentine.  Other great gifts such as hand  painted shirts, jewelry, sachets,  etc., were also good bargains.  The baked goods on sale ranged  from homemade bread to rich  chocolate fudge. Patti Dewar  and Jerri Hills of Creek Foods  had prepared spanakopita, pizza, and chicken enchiladas for  immediate consumption. Picnic  and patio tables had been set in  front of the stage for eating and  listening to the wide variety of  excellent musicians performing.  And to keep the kids busy and  creative, an imagination market  was nearby.  Organizer Jeanette Moen  wishes to thank the abundant  volunteers for being so wonderful, and she insists this will be  an annual event.

ATTENTION ROSE  Rose, who phoned me wanting to know what I meant  about my comments about the  GST���sorry 1 lost your phone  number, if you still want to talk  to me give me another call.  "The Up Reader"  by Gwen Snow  I'm Irving to learn a new  language.  Il's nol very easy lo do.  I need your help and  issislance.  So / thought I'd explain it to  vou.  Next time you 're going lo  speak to me  Don 'l turn your face away.  For only by 'seeing' the words  on your lips  Can I understand what you  say.  Talk to me more distinctly���not too loud,  Not too slow, not loo fast,  Don 'l hide Irehind a cup, or a  hand.  Or keep talking after you've  passed.  When you impatiently say,  'Never mind'  I shrivel up inside, for I  Frantically fought lo hear what  you said  And you don't even know I  tried.  The licking clock, the singing  bird,  The sound on the roof of rain.  Approaching footsteps, a loved  one's voice  What I'd give lo hear I hem  again.  Will you help me to remember  through  The 'picture' of a word���a  sound, a melody,  That once I loved...and heard.  Lip reading is a skill everyone  possesses in varying degrees.  Even a person with normal  hearing will find it somewhat  frustrating to have his visual  contact broken to a distant  speaker by a pillar, a wide-  brimmed hat, or a very tall or  wide person.  When hearing loss occurs, it  is very natural to begin to need  to see a person's face when being spoken to. If I can't see you,  1 can't hear you���becomes a  way of life. Enhancing lip  reading skills can be beneficial  to a hard-ol -hearing person. It  is not the only solution. Lip  reading must be used together  with consistent wearing of properly selected hearing aids,  asserliveness, controlling your  listening environment, increasing your self-esteem and using  coping skills to make things  easier for you.

The first half of the meeting  concerned rural housing. Leslie  Varley of the UNN's BC Native  Housing Corporation explained  the "Rural and Native Housing  Program" is currently in place.  BC Native Housing has the  contract to deliver the program,  which was initiated by the  Canada Mortgage and Housing  Corporation to address the problem of inadequate rural housing.  The program's objective is to  provide assistance to rural low  income families, seniors, and  non-elderly singles, both native  and non-native. It helps people  And affordable and adequate  housing through various options, by providing assistance  for the purchase or rental of a  home, construction of a new  home, or repair of an existing  home to bring it up to national  housing standards.  The latter portion of the  meeting became rather emotional, as Sherry Clark of the  UNN, a co-ordinator who  works with Bill C-31, explained  how the legislation came into  being. She later dealt with the  dedicated, hard working  organization. They expressed  surprise at the number of people  present at the meeting (17), as  apathy is a big problem they encounter. In the face of indifference, they travel throughout  "reinstatement process' for all  people affected by this bill.  Bill C-31 is an amendment to  the Indian Act. The act itself is  responsible for two things; it  says how Reserves and Bands  may operate, and it defines who  is and who is not recognized as  an Indian. Before Bill C-31 was  passed, the Indian Act generally  defined "status" Indians in two  ways. First, an Indian was any  person who was a member of a  recognized Band and second, it  defined a number of types of  Indian people who were denied  recognition as "registered" or  'status' Indians, these people  were therefore denied membership in Bands.  Over the years those denied  membership have included: Indian women who married men  who were not recognized as Indian, Indian children who lost  status because of illegitimacy,  and Indians who were disenfranchised (stripped of status  under the Indian Act) for any  reason such as wanting to vote,  to drink, to own property, to  live in another country or  become a lawyer or clergyman,  etc.  Bill C-31 ends many of these  discriminating provisions in the  Indian Act, especially those  which discriminate against  women. It changes the meaning  of 'status' and, for the first  time, it allows for limited  reinstatement of Indians who  were denied or lost status  and/or Band membership in the  past. It also allows Bands to  define their own membership  rules.  The reinstatement process is a  series of application forms and  questionnaires sometimes requiring extensive research and  many years of patience. The  people at UNN are ready and  waiting to help all applicants sift  through this exhausting  bureaucratic process.  The women who presided  over the meeting were quietly  confident and knowledgeable in  their presentations, and clearly  showed   they   represent   a  ~-4l&t~-  , EXTRA/EXTRA/  Drop off your  COAST NEWS  CLASSIFIEDS  AT  Wilson Creek  Campground  In Wilson Creek  Until 3:00 p.m. Friday  "A Friendly People Place"  the province, proud of the fact  that they are reaching the Indian people and actually helping  individuals get positive results in  dealing with the government.

That's right folks, you can kiss  all this frost goodbye because in  six short weeks, winter will be  gone.  For those of you fortunate  enough to be motoring around  in boats last week, wasn't it just  great? All that mirror smooth  water blemished only by the odd  bit of loitering driftwood. Occasionally, the forms you sec on  ' the water come to life. Birds,  seals, otters, sea lions, they all  do a great floating wood imper  sonation until they suddenly  disappear with a blip or a  graceful arc up and back into  the deep blue sea.  The nights were bright  enough to read by with the big  moon illuminating everything.  By five or six in the morning, it  sat so low in the sky that it  would shine right in my eyes  and get me up out of bed for the  day. It just didn't seem right to  be gelling up to moon shine.  Did anyone catch the lunar  eclipse on the evening of the  29th?  Cougars seem to be out and  about a little bit lately. At the  head of Hotham Sound,  caretakers Rob and Dawn surprised (and were surprised by) a  cougar that was lining their dog  up for its dinner. Luckily, the  dog had the good sense??? to  run back and crawl between her  owners' legs for protection, but  I bet she'll be spending more  time than usual indoors for  awhile.

For an answer to any question you may have about any  service of the federal government dial 1-800-663-1381.  Since there are approximately  1400 programs and activities administered by the government  of Canada, Reference Canada  must have more information on  tap than a 30 volume encyclopedia.  But seriously. Reference  Canada provides a timely  benefit for anyone who needs  informaton in a hurry, or requires some direction to putting  a matter aright.  "If we don't have an immediate answer, we will find it  for you," said Suzanne Konde,  ihe pleasant-voiced person who  took my call to the 800 number.  Toll free, of course.  "And if the matter is a provincial one, we will provide a  telephone number of their agency that can give you the answer.  We are here to help."  Reference Canada, operated  under contract, by the way, said  yes, there are some questions  that do get asked over and over;  for instance, does a CB radio require a license, what's my con  stituency and how do I get to  talk to my MP, where do I ask  for a royal congratulatory  message for an anniversary?  There are questions on  passports, pensions both international and private ('My cheque's late'), unemployment insurance, funding seniors' projects; and others on traplines,  incorporation, embassies and  consulates, the arts and small  business funding just to name a  few.  They have even fielded, "Do  chickens lay more eggs when  they have toys to play with?"  Didn't ask what answer they  came up with for that one.  Reference Canada in Vancouver is open Monday to Friday, 8:30 am to 4:30 pm. Fourteen hundred programs and activities! That's more shoes than  the Prime Minister has.

A LOST COW  "1 let them out in to the  timber to get them out of the  snow." The Keats Island  farmer, George de Koning, was  telling me about the Holsteins  he keeps on the Corkum Farm,  and the trying times they endured in the recent lingering  snowfall.  "If cattle can keep moving,  they'll get the accumulated  snow off their backs and keep  warm. An old cattleman once  told me to feed cows their hay a  mile from their drinking water  when the snow is deep. They'll  move soon enough after that  dry hay."  When George and a friend  checked the cows and calves in  the evening, they found one was  missing.  "Gertie always answered to  her name, but not this time. My  friend and 1 searched and searched again in every nook we  could think of. She would not  have wandered away from her  calf or the others. We knew she  was in trouble somewhere, but  where? The next day my friend  who couldn't give up, made a  search along the shore by  boat."  "And he found her���wedged  under a cottage porch east of  Plumper Cove."  How did she get there?  "We figured she lost her  footing on the glazed snow���  those split hooves have no grip  in that stuff���slithered down  the bank and jammed herself  under the building."  "She had struggled frantically and was quite worn out. But  block and tackle and a power  winch eased her out."  You saved her then, a happy  end to the rescue?  "She was too weak to survive  the night, though we had  covered her with blankets. The  next morning when we saw the  ravens circling we suspected the  worst."  That's the second disaster to  hit your stock this year, George;  first the Belgian mare in birth,  and now this young cow.  "She has left two calves, and  now the five remaining cows  and calves are okay in the  pasture. That's all part of farming, I guess, but 1 always wish it  wouldn't happen. No milk for  sale, by the way, the calves are  looking after that."  Gertie is buried deep in an  unmarked spot on the island.  "She was such a quiet brood  cow, I'm sure sorry to lose  her," George said.

Well, my other  cold symptoms cleared all  right, but I think my stuffy  nose is worse. Is that possible? Should I try another  brand of nasal spray V  No; and stop using the  one you have now. Please  don't use any nasal decongeslani  at all. If in two or three days you  do nol feel much better, contact  your doctor. More than likely, it's  the overuse of spray which has  caused your continued and worsened nasal congestion. That will  sometimes happen���especially if  you have nol explicitly followed  ihe product's dosage direction  A nasal spray is a deconges  tant. It "works" by shrinking  blood vessels in the nasal pas  sages If the blood vessels in the  nasal passages have become di  lated (which sometimes happens  with a cold), a person's nose feels  "study". By shrinking these blood  vessels, a nasal spray does make  you feel better-for a while But,  as Ihe medication wears off, the  blood vessels dilate once more  They will slop dilating when the  cold goes away  Nasal decongestants are  generally very effective and very  convenient to use whether they  come in spray or liquid drop  form People like Ihem because  they provide almost instantane  ous relief for stuffy noses  However, il you fall into the easy  habil of using sprays or nose  drops every time you feel con  gested, your nasal blood vessels  will oVERdilate That will make  you feel worse, not belter Your  cold is gone, but you still have a  stuffy nose.  Switching brands and us  ing another nasal spray will  not help. The only way to end  this "rebound congesuon" is to  stop using sprays and nose  drops  If you cannot live with a  stuffy nose for even a short  while, ask your pharmacist  for an oral decongestant,  but limit your use. Read the  product's instructions carefully,  and NEVER take any medication  more often than directed People who take medicine for  high blood pressure or a  heart condition, or have diabetes, glaucoma or thyroid  problems should not use  decongestant products in  any form without consulting their doctor.

Robin Hethey and Peter MacDonald will merge their  Social Studies 10 and History 10 daises to create Humanities  10���an interdisciplinary study designed lo develop interpersonal skills and promote creative and critical thinking.  Hethey and MacDonald presented their plans to the School  District Board of Trustees last week and notified them that  they looked forward to the dual-teaching task.  The Ministry of Education awarded $3200 in grant money  to help set up the program.  Bridge to  special needs  Parenting and working with children with special needs  presents a variety of challenges. Understanding some of the  needs of children in our community may help to 'bridge the  gap' between frustration and success. 'Building Bridges' offers parents and professionals an opportunity to learn  together about issues such as preschool integration, the  temperamentally 'difficult' child, and encouraging language  development. This workshop series is sponsored by the Sunshine Coast Infant Development Programme and will take  place on Friday, March 1, and Saturday, March 2, at  Rockwood in Sechelt. For cost and registration details, please  call Cindy or Merrily at 885-5940. Deadline for registration is  February 15.  1 Sth Music Festival  The 18th Annual Sunshine Coast Musk Festival will be  held from April 17 to 26.  The deadline for entries is March 1,1991. The syllabus is  available from Lob Holmes, who may be contacted at  885-9889.  Festival information can be obtained from Betty Allen who  may be reached at 886-2324.  School Board budget  Spending said well-in-hand  by Joel  While school enrollment  figures are expected to rise from  3004, in June of 1990, to 3519 in  1993, current pressures on  School District spending appear  to be well in hand.  "The school board, for the  past eight years, was operating  at a deficit," said secretary-  treasurer Tim Anderson. "This  past year was the first year the  budget balanced. This is a result  of having up-to-date control  and more timely information in  reacting to problems," Anderson said of last year's  $15,423,612 total budget  balance.  Figures for the 1990-91 year  show definite changes by comparison to '89-'90. Anderson  says the system of school tax  collection and fiscal responsibility has evolved, allowing the  district to show a surplus from  '89-'90, which otherwise may  not have been there. At first  glance it also shows this year's  budget to be up by more than 25  per cent when, in actuality, 10  per cent is a closer figure.  "The surplus (of $292,949)  from last year was a one time  adjustment.  "It was the changeover from  us collecting taxes to the  Ministry of Education collecting  taxes. The surplus is just a quirk  in the calculations that gave us a  break...which we are now spending madly all over the place."  The current year's budget of  over $21 million is a jump from  last year's $15 million figure for  a lot of reasons, Anderson says.  "Last year, if you had included all the same things as this  year's budget (contains) the  figure would have been near $18  million.  "Because of the addition of a  $1 million pension fund  previously handled by Victoria,  a textbook fund not previously  shown in district budget  figures," and "hundreds of  reasons" now under local  operating responsibility, Anderson noted "Our budget this year  is basically up $3 million."  An excess of revenue over expenses in Anderson's operating  statement released last week,  which includes the '89-'90  surplus, is due to the new block  funding approach now underway in districts across the province, and the early receipt of  grant money for the '90-'91  year.  Budgeted revenues and expenditures for the first half of  the '90-'91 school year do not  include the estimated $292,850  forthcoming due to increased  enrollment in September. Fun  ding is in place for the Roberts  Creek Elementary School expansion which, Anderson told  the District School Board  Meeting last week, architects are  currently drawing up comparison sketches to show "the  difference between a simple addition, and an addition and  renovation to the school."  Up the Coast, Anderson said,  "We are still awaiting sketch  drawings of an addition to  Pender Harbour Secondary  School as an alternative to the  renovations at Madeira Park.  These have been held up due to  the lack of room to construct  such an addition on the west  end of the school."  A scheduled meeting between  trustees, parents, the Ministry  of Education and MLA Harold  Long concerning Roberts Creek  School has been postponed till  February 26.  ���VW  EXTRAS  mmm  Just Arrived ���������������������������������������  AFGHANI  JEWELLERY  MORE AMETHYST  RINCS  BATIK PICTURES  sqS?

Coast News, February 4,1991  .HI5UE.E  Consultant's report rocelwd  Roberts Creek targeted in rec plan  Joan Reekie, C.G.A.  Announces a new public accounting practice serving the  Sunshine Coast in finance, accounting, tax and computers.  885-6354 (7-12 noon)  by Stuart Burnside  A proposed 10 to 15 year  Coastal recreation improvement  plan which, if implemented,  would cost nearly $11 million,  was the topic of a public forum  held last Wednesday night in the  Sechelt Elementary School.  The plan, the result of an  eight month study, was  presented by Professional Environment Recreation Consultants Ltd. (PERC), a company hired by Coastal governments and special interest  groups. PERC's purpose was to  ascertain the present and future  recreational needs of Sunshine  Coast residents and explore how  those needs could be met,  The plan was derived from  PERC's random survey of 1000  Coast residents. The design of  the survey, according to John  Forsdick, the PERC spokesman  al the meeting, was to establish  the priorities for recreational  improvements on the Coast as  perceived by Coastal residents  ���with little input by local  governments, since the public  are the users.  Topping the list for desired  improvements was youth centres; 60 per cent of the people  polled expressed the need for  places which would provide  recreational opportunities for  young people.  Also registering as priorities  were pool facilities, senior  citizen halls, trails, a theatre,  improved library facilities and  bike paths. Because of the scope  of the project, the plan calls for  a three phase approach with  each stage taking from three to  seven years to complete.  The strategy of the proposal  would be to try to locate one  first class set of recreational  facilities in an area that would  benefit all the local communities. According to the  PERC study, 80 per cent of the  households surveyed expressed  a willingness to commute 10 to  15 kilometres to use improved  facilities. Based on this percentage, PERC has recommended  Roberts Creek as the site for the  new facilities, adding that,  besides the central location, the  golf course and Cliff Gilker  Park added to the recreational  attractiveness of the area.  The idea of consolidating the  recreational facilities of the  Coast stems from the expense of  building and operating such  facilities on an individual community basis. Paramount in the  concept of regional recreational  facilities, according to Forsdick  is the formation of a single  regional commission to organize, oversee and operate the  completed project.  "More regional coordination between local  governments is the real key for  regional facilities that require  large amounts of capital," said  Forsdick. "No one community  can go it alone."  According to Forsdick, an  aquatic facility put in place by  PERC in the town of Maple  Ridge jmjoys an annual average  Countryside Concert  at the Twilight  Countryside Concerts, a  scries sponsored jointly by the  Arts Council and Shop Easy,  presents the fourth concert of  the scries, the Vancouver Symphony Trio, on Sunday, February 10 al 2 pm, Twilight  Theatre.  The trio features celebrated  pianist, Linda Lee Thomas, one  of Canada's finest-and most exciting performers. Also on the  program is the husband and  wile team, Karen and Wesley  Foster. Karen is a member of  the first violins of the VSO,  while   Wes   is   the   principal  clarinetist.  The program will feature  solo, duo and trio works by  Chopin, Schumann, Block and  Bruch. Tickets may be obtained  by phoning Betty Allen at  886-2324.

Forsdick assured the forum  that the pool was well managed,  but deficits were a reality of  these facilities.  Forsdick pointed out that, for  BC municipalities, the average  per-person cost (in taxes) for  maintenance of these properties  was $75. Gibsons curren.lv is at  the $50 to $75 per capita range,  with Sechelt nearer to $30 per  person. He went on to say that,  of the people polled, nearly 82  per cent said they wouldn't  mind paying extra taxes ($20 to  $40 annually per person) for the  new facilities.  Forsdick also mentioned the  margin of error for the PERC  survey averaged about seven per  cent over the various communities polled.  When asked by one of the  forum participants "What  would become of the Gibsons  Pool" if the plan went through,  the PERC representative said  the plan recommended the pool  be cemented over and the structure used for something else,  "possibly for Gibsons' youth  centre."  The proposed plan will be  available for public viewing for  the next two months at both the  Sechelt and Gibsons Public  Libraries.

Bell had  a well-earned reputation as a  maneater, given to firing entire  crews when the mood struck  him. His erratic temper has  become a part of logging  folklore and the stories about  him are legion.  But Bell liked Red and took  him under his wing. "I worked  for Panicky on numerous occasions, both second rigging, and  later, head rigging. He'd always  give me a chance. But as I grew  older, this sort of paternalistic  relationship began to change. I  grew more assertive and started  arguing with him. I became arrogant, I guess���all high riggers  were arrogant. I had some real  stand-up rows with him.  "I remember once I was  changing a skyline with a very  poor crew. Well, Panicky came  along to help me. 1 guess he was  sorry for me, having to work  with such a bunch of  greenhorns. Well, I figured he  was meddling. 1 told him he  could either screw off or I  would! That I was changing this  skyline! He was such an aggressive character, he couldn't  keep his mouth shut. He kept  giving me a lot of unwanted advice and I didn't like this in  front of the crew.  "On reflection, that was  quite wrong of me. But, like I  say, Panicky had a good side to  him. He didn't can me or  anything. He just went away  cursing and later told some of  the other oldtimers thai 1 was  getting big-headed. 1 was one of  the youngest head riggers on the  Coast and I did have a pretty  high opinion of myself back  then. This was about 1947. I  won't say I was all that good  but I did learn the business  quickly once I got started.  "Old Panicky had tolerance  when he wanted to use it  because I did give him a lot of  mouth. 1 worked for him a lot  over the years. I was a bit of a  camp-inspector in those days-  used to work a few months and  quit. When I got married, I settled down a bit. I head-rigged  eight months for him just after  this. He was very kind to me at  that time. My wife was pregnant  and I had to get some fast  money together."  'Society' Red picked up his  nickname from his rather  unloggerly behaviour in Vancouver. "Like I mentioned, 1  was never much of a boozer. All  the other guys would be drinking and whoring it up down on  the Skidroad and I'd be taking a  girl to a symphony concert...  They couldn't understand why  anyone would want to do  something like that so they hung  the name on me."  Over the years, Red hired out  through all the Vancouver Log  ging Agencies���Hicks, Bodie's,  etc. but there is one he  remembers with particular  disfavour. "That was White's  uptown on Denman Street. It  was the most important of the  hiring halls. White had all the  biggest camps and the most  comprehensive file on loggers in  the history of the Coasl. He was  also a miserable bastard.  Nobody had a good word for  him.  "I remember the day old  White died. It was in the early  fifties and i was walking down  Granville Street. Al that lime  there were hundreds of loggers  around. I ran into a lot of guys I  knew  from  the camps. They  were all celebrating. 'Hey, did  you hear the good news? Old  Daddy White died. C'mon and  have a drink.'  "He was hated and feared  throughout the business. Those  files he kept���J. Edgar Hoover  couldn't have improved on  them. Anytime a guy got fired  or walked off a job, White  would stick it on his record.  He'd put the word out on you  and you'd have trouble getting  work when jobs were scarce.  After White died the files passed on to the Loggers' Agency  across from the West Hotel. I  don't know what happened lo  them after that Agency closed  down.'

My friend had just had a booking, which made her in a rush, so she chose  the Caesar salad and received the quick service she requested. Not only did she  rate the salad "Very good," but she gave special kudos to the homemade  whole wheat garlic bread���"Excellent!" The menu notes that all their sandwiches���there's a selection of seven���are made with this great bread.  I was tempted by the special, a Mexican chicken burger; chicken topped with  cheese, salsa and guacamole, and served with fries, green or potato salad  ($6.25). But I opted for another Mexican dish, Quesadillas, a soft flour tortilla  filled with diced chicken, onion, tomato, green pepper, jalapenos and Cheddar, accompanied by sour cream, guacamole and salsa ($5.95). Perfect lo add  sunshine to a cold rainy day! It's a tangy concoction, a wonderful combo unique to the Coast Club Cafe, and already on my list of favourites.  One of the great things about Coast Club's menu is its variety. It includes  the "Dashaway Lunch", a daily soup and sandwich combo (if it's not served  in 10 minutes, it's on them!), fish and chips, eight burgers, seafood clubhouse,  teriyaki chicken salad, smoked salmon and cream cheese on a bagel and  Chicken Cordon Bleu in addition to soups and salads and the items already  described.

This article will be the Final  article on sweeping. Just as a  skip must know the exact reaction of the ice, the sweepers  must know the reaction of a  stone in a particular area of the  ice. As they are following a  stone down the ice, they should  be checking for runs in the ice,  slow spots and fast spots. They  must know where the ice is  swingy and how much it swings.  They should be aware of pebble  wear and frost, how many times  a rock has travelled a certain  area of the ice and which areas  of the ice are shining from many  previous rocks. All these things  are clues to how fast and how  straight a rock will run in a certain area of the sheet. If the  sweepers don't react before the  rock dies or starts its cut, the  chances are the rock will be lost.  Another important factor for  sweepers to remember is the exact location the skip has indicated for the rock when it  reaches the house. When a draw  to the rings or a guard up front  is indicated, it is important to  get ihe rock to that exact location. It is also the sweepers'  responsibility lo ensure the rock  does not end up in a location  where an easy double knockout  is possible.  Positioning of a stone behind  a guard is also important. If the  ice is swingier in one direction  than the other, placing a rock to  one side of the guard or the  other can be extremely important. It is best, of course to get  the rock in the most difficult  location to prevent it from  being eliminated by the opposition stones. Sweeping extremely  hard on one side to the stone  will cause the stone to bite to  one side and come more quickly  to rest.  Setting a stone the correct  distance behind a guard is also  helpful. If the stone is too close  to the guard, both the stone and  the guard may be removed  together with one stone. Placing  the stone too far back of the  guard makes the stone easier to  remove on a come around shot.  It is best to set a come around  draw shot about 10 to 20 feet  back of the guard. There is no  fixed rule here, since there are  long guards and short guards.  There is one general rule,  however, draw shots are usually  better placed in front of the tee-  line than behind it.  If you are a novice, look to  your skip for advice since every  circumstance will be different.

Atlantic salmon, pros and cons  Dr. Alan Castledine of the Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries  discusses the controversial issue of the introduction of Atlantic  salmon to Pacific waters at a Foreshore Advisory Task Force  meeting. See Story. ���Rom Nicholson photo  A & T ENTERPRISES:  CONSTRUCTION SERVICES  ��� CUSTOM HOMES        ��� A()[ 111 IONS  ��� RENOVATIONS  Planning a Renovation?  886-3538  Continued from page 1  is required, the eggs are carefully inspected and disinfected,  then the smolts are held in  quarantine for one year.  Ron Ginetz of the Department of Fisheries and Oceans  (DFO) said that the federal  government has put its stamp of  approval on the Atlantic salmon  program in BC.  But in spite of all the  assurances, FATF members expressed serious misgivings.  "This question has been raised  because of the financial advantage to one user of the  resource," said FATF member  Diana Davidson.  "Given the history of the  adequacy of the information we  have received from government,  1 wouldn't count on it (the information). It seems to me that  the correct question when we're  tampering with the environmenl  is not the reason we shouldn't  do it, but the reason we should  doit.  "Economic reasons, in my  opinion, do not constitute thai  reason. When you do research  to support something, it's very  different than when you do  research, ���period."  Davidson went on to point  out that very little is known  about the reasons for the failure  of the early attempts to introduce Atlantics to this coast  and the only solid information  comes from the past five or six  years, which may not be enough  time to assess the possible risks.  "My suggestion is that,  unless there is some very important other reason, the information on transfer of viruses and  the reason why world populations are so rapidly subject to  pandemics such as AIDS is  because of movement of species  from one place to another.

When you change that  you run into all the arguments  against doing something like  this. If you don't mix populations, they don't exchange  diseases. It's that simple."  Challenging Davidson's  arguments, veterinarian Don  French warned against getting  into the shaky ground of comparing human and animal (or  fish) diseases. "It's a very complicated subject," he said. "We  need specialists in epidemiology  to deal with that."  FATF Chairman Gordon  Wilson raised the basic question  of why Atlantic salmon should  be introduced to BC at all, given  the variety of the indigenous  species. "It's a question that I,  and other members of this Task  Force, get asked all the time,"  he said.  "People see a company like  Aquarius that appeared to be  extremely well-financed, extremely well-organized, that had  integrated their farm management plan from the hatchery  right through to the processing  plant,���that goes broke, and  leaves considerable debt in the  community.  "Then we see the introduction of Atlantics, and people are  saying, 'they couldn't make a  go of it on a regular basis with  all that financing. Now what are  they doing, are they tinkering,  are they doing genetic engineering, are they bringing in new  stocks, ���anything to make it  go?' 1 simply don't know the  answers."  Kevin Onclin, President of  the SCAA and Manager of  Saga Sea Farms, pointed out  that it was important "to keep  in mind the history of Atlantics  as a cultured salmon.  "The problem that the  farmer faces right now is that  the knowledge base on the  chinook is not affording us the  ability to make ends meet.  Maybe a combination of the  two species will. I'm not saying  that all farmers want to go to  Atlantics, It's an industry decision.  "Some farmers may be looking at it to fill a short term gap  till the knowledge base comes  back up to support chinooks. If  I have both species in the water,  I'm going to be more concerned  than anyone that both species  are clean and that I'm not going  to kill one with the other. My  concerns are probably 10 times  greater than yours."  In expressing the point of  view of ihe provincial government, Joe Ttuscott of the  Ministry of Agriculture and  Fisheries (MAF) said lhal  "aquaculture is seen as a  business like anything else.  "The government has decided on ihe basis of solid technical  information thai it is environmentally acceptable,���and  it is up to the industry whether  they can make an economic go  of it. The government is not going to step in and say 'we are  not going to lei you go ahead  with this because you might go  broke'."  Bringing up the other side of  that question, Wilson pointed  out that the aquaculture industry has considerable impact  on services such as waste  management that are supported  by local taxes.  "There is a different factor  here," concluded Davidson.  "You are introducing a new  species into a common resource,  which is the water life. All the  creatures in the water are a common resource.  "When one industry asks to  put the common resource at a  possible risk, despite the  assurances, 1 don't think there  are many people in this room  who have not read widely  enough to know that it is a controversial decision to introduce  a new species into an uncontrollable environment, which is  the whole Pacific coast.  "You cannot isolate the experiment in any way. If you  make a wrong decision, it impacts on our common resource.  You believe the risk is in-  finilesimally small, others  believe the risk is real.  "That's why it's an issue."

For example a person who  stipulates "no children" as a  condition ol rental would be in  violation of the Family Status and  Ihe Human Rights Acts. The  landlord who places the advertisement and the newspaper  which publishes it would both be  in contravention ol the legislation  and could have a complaint tiled  against them.

Editor:  As Canada provides troops  and planes to the United Nation's war in the Middle East, a  certain segment of our population equates this conflict as sup-  porting some kind of  "American Imperialism". This  type of association can only cast  doubt on the true motives of  those who march for peace.  Do we know of any society  where a police force is not required to keep the peace? At  one time the police were called  "peace officers". As this is  being written a hostage incident  is taking place in Vancouver  and police with drawn guns are  trying to restore the peace. Do  we say "don't shoot" when  somebody begins to take the  lives of others?  The UN is a body of nations  who no doubt should have their  own police force instead of  depending upon certain member  states to step forward. If  Canada wishes to be part of the  UN and establish and maintain  their reputation of "Peacekeeper" then we should have  been the first to Kuwait and  with drawn guns order Saddam  to leave. If the casualties do  come, we can then honour our  dead who died in the "line of  duty" protecting the peace of  the World. Or, do we crawl into  our shells and come out only  when others have done the job  for us?  There are few people in a  democratic society who preach  war and would not prefer peace.  However, when we join a  parade of people whose  organizers have the sole purpose  of vilifvina our neighbours to  the South, one begins to wonder  as to the motives. I have a hard  time believing that they believe  Saddam to be the righteous  leader for them to follow; yet,  the association is there. If so,  then those are the people who  do not believe in peace but in  war as long as the issue can be  convoluted into anti-  Americanism.  Yes, I believe in peace. No, I  will not march with you. The  goal of peace has been clouded  by other subversive issues. If  you wish to be anti-American  that is your prerogative but do  not couple that with a desire for  peace. If it is the Socialist state  that you march for, their  records have been anything but  peaceful. Peace yes, but count  me out when it comes to these  other purposes.  John Burns  Sechelt  Editor:  We of the local peace group  support our fellow Canadians in  the armed forces. Because they  want to defend our country,  which includes all of us, they  are risking their health and  lives. We respect and appreciate  this. We have a special concern  for the families of people on active military service. Many of us  are veterans and their families.  Support, as seen by people in  the peace movement, is not just  sending lots of supplies, and  more people, and words of encouragement, in an uncritical  reaction.   We   believe���our  elected representatives did not  try hard enough to prevent this  war; nor did those of other  countries and���if they wish,  these governments can call a  ceasefire, get down to sincere  negotiation, and achieve an Iraqi withdrawal from Kuwait.  We are urging this course by  every democratic means we  know. This is our way of giving  honest, practical support to  Canada's armed forces, and  everyone being killed and  maimed in the Persian Gulf.  Iris Griffith  Chair, Sunshine Coast  Peace Group  Memo from Les  Editor's Note: TheJollowing  letter  to  the  PubBtwr  was  received for publication.  Dear John:  Just a word to compliment  you on your inclusion of "Low  Sky" in your last issue. You  must take some solace in the  realization that the Coast News  is almost the only particle of the  Canadian media with the  acumen to print such a timely  message.  Through a unique sense of  metaphor and personification,  Emily Dickenson presented the  world with a new language to  express her wonder at the  phenomena of life. Only with  extreme reluctance would she  have included "like us" with  "low", "mean", "narrow",  and "complain" as her appraisals of nature's mood on an  inclement wintry day.

Coast News, February 4,1991  "Lack of adequate services"  Toxic waste disposal still enigma  by Stuart Burnside  In ihe nexl couple of years  "toxic taxis" may collect hazardous waste from the Sunshine  Coasl, bin���as of yet���nothing  is in place lo either collect or  sfore any such material.  The provincial government  estimates that BC generates  100,000 tonnes of hazardous  waste annually. According to  government reports, there are  currently 400,000 tonnes of  hazardous material (four years  worth) awaiting disposal in provincial storage units.  Ihe Sunshine Coast's contribution to that total is largely  unknown, because very little is  done here regarding the collection or storage of hazardous  waslc, and no local government  bodies lake responsibility for it.  According to Sig Lehman,  Superinlendani of Public  Works for Ihe SCRD, Ihe  regional landfill is nol authorized lo accept any form of  "...Hazardous waste;  ...Chemicals which create  hazardous working conditions;  ...waste oil or petroleum pro-  duels; ...etc."  Lehmann said the dump does  lake old tires���often regarded  as toxic because of their  chemical composition���but  gives or sells them to contractors who burn ihe tires to maintain the large fires often found  on land clearing operations.  "Most of the large timber fires  you see will have a tire or two in  their centres," said Lehmann.  Simply put, the lires may be  toxic, but burning them seems  to be acceptable.  Lehmann was asked who  ultimately was responsible for  the collection of hazardous  substance, if not the dump. He  said he wasn't sure. He suggested it be the responsibility of  the people who own the  substances.  Lehmann's���"I'm not  sure"���response to the question  was echoed by other local  government sources.  Alderman Peggy Wagner,  Sechelt's Chairman of the Environment Committee,  acknowledged both the lack of  adequate collection services and  ihe "real need" to have a collection program installed. She added, however, that to provide  weekly collection of hazardous  waste would be "excessively expensive."  Wagner noted thai more  public awareness was needed lo  make the issue a focal point.  Conservation Officer Doug  Pierce, of the Ministry of the  Environment (the ministry actually responsible for toxic  waste at the present time) said  his ministry is "...reluctant to  collect the waste because once  it's collected, it becomes our  responsibility."  Pierce said people with small  amounts of hazardous waste  (bleach, insecticides, paint thinner, etc.) could take their waste  to a collection centre in Surrey  but that larger quantities needed  more effort. He mentioned  Elphinstone Secondary School  which is currently in possession  of numerous barrels of formaldehyde. The toxic preser  vative must be transported to a  chemical redemption centre in  Richmond at a cost to the  school of $750 a barrel,  courage a reduction in the  amount of hazardous waste being produced by residents."  ing produced by residents.'  The transporting of hazardous waste was a subject  broached at a recent Transportation Committee meeting. A  recommendation was made that  a letter be drafted and sent to  NEW?

He  said ihe government's attitude  has been lo allow the burning by  contractors because it's seen as  a "one shot deal, it's nol done  everyday (by the same contractor)." Figures as to how many  contractors are involved in ifiis  practice were unavailable.  Discussion on the possibility  of weekly hazardous waste pickups for the Sunshine Coasl have  been held by government bodies  in the past. According to a  document obtained by the  Coast News, the issue was  discussed at a June I, I990  meeting of the Sunshine Coast  Environmental Task Force.  Resulting from the meeting  was Ihe decision to "...move  with caution. It may be belter to  educate the community about  hazardous waste and to encourage a reduction in Ihe  amount of hazardous waste be-  GARAGE  SALE  YfrejaW^Art Qlaabracht aa himself and atarrlng  ���4r   "ALTERNATIVE - UA  *��� ^^ aa your one-stop finishing atora f% J  with a larga caat of savings.  18 x 30  Bathroom Vanity  Complete with top  *8000 1 only  36" Mahogany Cafe  Door  $2000,only  ********  Formica Cuttings  99<ca  2'x4'      Reg. $3.98  Lattice Panels  1<x8'.��2����ea  2'x8'.$4����tM  Deckote  Decfc Coating  *1 500/4 L  Reg. $36.00  4xB Plastic  Laminate  *1500/sheet  Assorted Colours  Clidden Ext.

Committee Chairman Gordon Wilson cited barrels of  waste oil piling up on the  government wharf in Pender  Harbour because it was too expensive to have shipped to Vancouver. A prior letter to the  Committee from BC Ferries indicated an unwillingness to provide the requested service,  claimed that there already existed private transportation to  handle such substances. The  Corporation stated they "...had  no intention of competing with  the private sector..."  The only note of optimism  to be found in the current situation may come from the provincial government. Six months  ago a new provincial corporation���British Columbia's  Hazardous Waslc Management  Corporation (BCHWMC)  ��� was seated to try lo deal with  ihe growing problem of hazardous and toxic wastes.  The BCHWMC���still in the  organizational stages���would  take over from the Ministry of  the Environment and assume  full responsibility for the collection and storage of hazardous  wastes on a province-wide basis.  According to Brian  Johnston, a spokesman for  BCHWMC, the new corporation hopes to have "toxic taxis"  in place in rural areas sometime  in the next two-three years. The  "toxic taxis" concept would  provide hazardous waste collection and transportation from  areas like the Sunshine Coast,  as well as provide storage for  the accumulated waste.  Johnston said that eight  storage sites for hazardous  waste have been set aside in BC,  with more lo be created as demand increases.  Johnston said that one of the  main focuses of the corpora-  lion���aside from collecting and  storing waste���will be to  "educate the public" on hazardous waste by suggesting nontoxic alternatives to given products and providing ideas for  the secondary use of hazardous  products once they have  satisfied their original function.  When asked about the end  result for the stored waste,  Johnston said some would be  burned, some buried, some  could be recycled, and some  would continue to be stored. He  said that new technologies to  deal with the variety of wastes  were being "studied."  But while these attempts to  come to grips with the problem  of hazardous and toxic waste  disposal arc being made, the  substances themselves continue  to accumulate.  DeVRlES  .Named OttbWDulPort!
