Array Federal Fisheries Minisler Tom Siddon heard submissions from local fishermen lasl Tuesday on recent  restrictions broughl in by his departmenl. ���Penny Fuller phuio  Chinook restrictions  Minister stands  firm on changes  Federal Fisheries Minisler  Tom Siddon stood firm lasl  week on the new restrictions  which his department has introduced to address Ihe problem  of depicting slocks of chinook  salmon. In a meeting held al the  Indian Band Hall lasl Tuesday,  Siddon heard submissions Irom  both commercial and sports  fishermen who felt thai the  measures would either be ineffective or severely hurl iheir  livelihoods,  Flanked by a panel of whal  lie called "the lop scientific  minds in the world", Siddon  lold the packed hall thai  chinook slocks had depleted to  a "dangerous level" and radical  measures are necessary to ensure lhal they do not die out.  These measures include  reducing the allowable calh in  all sectors by approximately 20  percent, fagging of all chinooks  caughl so lhal fisheries can keep  track  of them  and  increased  funding for enhancement programs.  Using any one of the  measures alone would nol bring  the slocks back sufficiently, he  said.  1 he Georgia Strait has been  targetted for all these strategics,  and possibly more. The reason  for thai was explained by  Regional Manager Paul Sprout.  He pointed lo ihree major  spawning aieas for the chinook:  the Squamish, Cowichan and  Nanaimo rivers. Unlike Iheir  northern cousins, these chinook  lend lo slav in the Strait ol  Georgia all year round, making  iheir chances of avoiding being  caught much slimmer.  Bill bolh commercial and  sporls fishermen pointed to  olher major causes for the  stock's depletion, Repeatedly,  members of the audience cited  the declining herring slocks as a  major disruption In the food-  :hain  which  is  affecting ihe  chinooks' numbers.  Repeatedly, Siddon told itfie  speakers lhal his experts hjve  lold him lhal Ihereisnocorrpa-  lion between ihe iwo. His cujim  thai the herring stocks are back  up to the levels of the early sixties broughl a rumble \of  disagreement from the audience.  Another complaint by |the  speakers, affirmed by those in  attendance by iheir murmur��of  agreement, was the overabundance of seals and sea lions  in the area.  Siddon Iried lo sound sympathetic, saying he could  understand the frustration of  having a salmon on ihe hook  which was laken by a seal, but  again said lhal Ihe experts  whom he has repeatedly questioned over the last two years  aboul the seal issue have riot  made a sirong recommendation  io initiate a cull,  Please lurn lo page 13  m  The Sunshine  Published on the Sunshine Coast        25* per copy on news stands      March 28,1988       Volume 42       Issue 13  SCRD hears  Timber harvest concerns  An entire day of dancing and a polluck supper was enjoyed Saturday by the Elphinstone Scottish Country Dane rs. Guest instructor Ms Liz Johnstone conducted their spring workshop at Gibsons United  Church. -Ken Collins pholo  Al Ihe March 23 meeling ol  ihe Forestry Advisory Committee, committee members once  more expressed concern aboul  Ihe provincial government's  decision lo increase the amount  of limber harvest for small logging companies by 50 per cent.  The local forestry office had'  reported lo ihe committee lasl  year thai in orderlo have a susj  tainable harvest in this area, the  allowable cut would have lo be  reduced drastically, perhaps as  much as 50 per cent. The committee senl a letter to the  Minisler of Forests and lands  shortly afler Ihe announcement  of ihe increase, expressing iheir  concern.  On March 24, the Sunshine  Coasl Regional Dislricl (SCRD)  board received a reply from  Minister Dave Parker, thanking  them for iheir support of his  "ministry's plan lo manage the  Small Business Foresl Enterprise Program (SBFEP) in Ihe  Mi. Elphinstone management  unil."  There was some confusion  aboul   ihe   minister's   Idler.  In both communities  Buchan sees boom  I "We are in a renaissance," is  how municipal planner Rob  Puchan described ihe economic  resurgence felt along the entire  Sunshine Coast to the Coast  News lasl Friday.  ��� Buchan, employed by bolh  Gibsons and Sechell says thai  bolh communities are seeing a  turnaround in the economy and  a lol of il may be due to ihe  Porl Mellon expansion. Because  of the size of financing required, mosl developers have to  deal with banking offices in  Vancouver and the recent announcement of Porl Mellon expanding may have led to a  renewed confidence in investing  on the coasl.  "1 think it has had a dramatic  effect," said Buchan. "The  thing thai has held this area  back so long is the negativity. I  think we have turned the corner."  Buchan pointed out lhat last  week's Gibsons Planning  meeting had a full agenda of  development applications dealing with everything from Ihe  Alternative building supply  needing to expand,to Urban  Design Group architects from  North Vancouver presenting a  full colour drawing of a new  food store.  Buchan also feels Gibsons  may find itself temporarily  shorl of Mold space. He  pointed oul lhal even though  ihe Cedars Plaza would be convening to a 48 unil motel and  the Rilz was planning on expanding Canfor was already siar-  ling io book space for anticipated professionals needed  for their expansion.  "And lasl year was a bumper  crop for tourists," he said.  "And tourism is no longer only  a summer affair."  Ferry rates up  B.C. Ferries has announced an increase in ferry rales as of  April I, 1988. Rales on the Sunshine Coasl will be raised to  $21.00 for car and driver per round Irip. Passenger fares will  remain the same.  Saving time  Daylight saving time in British Columbia will begin this  year on the firsl Sunday of April and end on ihe lasl Sunday  of October, Provincial Secretary Elwood Veitch announced  today.  The minister said a cabinet order-in-council has sel April 3,  2 am, as the time to move ahead one hour in B.C. and October 30, at 2 am, as the time to go back an hour.  Easter Bunny  The Easier Bunny will scatter his eggs in Holland Park on  Easier Sunday, April 3, and families arc invited lo enjoy Ihe  many festivities of an Easter Egg Hum from 11 am unlil 3  pm.  Lots of events are planned. For more information please  call Sherry al Ihe Chamber of Commerce office, 886-2325.  In 1986 Sechelt had seven  subdivision applications. Mosl  were dividing small parcels.  Lasl year ihere were 30 applications totalling 150 lois bul ihis  year already there have been 12  applications and ihe subdivisions are gelling larger.  "There was one for 24 lots  lasl week and jusi this morning  anolher came in for 25," said  Buchan. "There is also Ihe  rezoning application foi a 66  unit relircmcnl village."  Could we become a bedroom  community for the lower  Mainland? "Equate driving  lime with ferry lime, draw a  grid of 20 mile concentric circles  around Vancouver, and look at  olher land available in lhal  grid," said Buchan pointing oul  the population expansion into  Ihe Fraser Valley and down lo  Ihe US border.  "I ihink lhal is why we have  been placed in the economic  region of zone II," he said.  Bul any growth won'I be  wilhoul its growing pains.  Buchan foresees adequate parking may be a future concern as  well as an increased need for  policing over the entire coasl.  "When people visit Ihe coasl  for whatever reason," he said,  "they do nol stay in one place."  Chairman Peggy Connor asked  Ihe SCRD represenlalive on the  Forestry Advisory Committee,  Jim Gurney, "Do we agree with  il? Thought we didn't."  Gurrle) explained the committee's concern aboul ihe increased culling allowance and  vveni on lo point out that in let-  ters io ihe minister, Ihe committee may have specified lhal logging of Mount Elphinstone is of  specific concern.  In ihe Idler, the Minisler  wrole, "Mi. Elphinstone unit  will noi be affected by the expected increase for the  SBFEP."  The Small Business program  is designed lo prevenl the major  logging companies from  monopolizing BC's foresl  resource. In order to qualify for  Ihe program, a company, ils  owners or pari owners, cannot  have an inlercsl in a company  lhal harvests over 10,000 cubic  metres of limber a year. For a  $1(X) per year fee, these small  companies are guaranleed access to a certain amounl of  timber, which ihey bid on.  Unlike the arrangcmenl wilh  Ihe larger logging companies,  participants in the SBFEP are  only responsible for the actual  harvesting of Ihe limber. The  Forest Service provides access io  the timber, lays oul the area,  and does Ihe clean up and  reforestation afterwards.

YYc do so In inform the debate aboul library support  and perhaps poinl a possible and equitable nay ahead.  I lie significant figure we suggest is the provincial average  per capita grant for libraries throughout the province. It is  $9.23 per capita according lo Ihe 1986 report.  Neighbouring comiminilics are supported in the following  amounts: Bowen Island Sv.78. all from Ihe regional district;  Powell River $8.40 per capita. $130,000 from Ihe municipality, $30,000 Irom Ihe regional dislrict; Squamish $9.41 per  capita all from Ihe municipality.  In Sechell. the per capita grant In Ihe library was $1.04 in  1986; in Gibsons il was $1.92. Bolh municipalities provide  olher help bul il is obvious lhal we are woefully behind in this  urea.  Gibsons has decided In supply $8,000 Ihis year which will  provide a per capita gram of $3.07. Sechell has yet lo decide.  Ihe provincial average should surely he a target. It would  see Gibsons providing a grant of $24,000 to its library. To  reach the 1986 provincial average Scchcll's grani would have  In he approximately $44,000.  Further Ihe regional hoard has nol done ils share. The approximately 1200 people in Area II utilize Ihe Sechelt Library  and as a minimum the SCKI) should match Ihe per capita  grain of Ihe iminicipalil> for Ihose 1200.  Hie Gibsons Library services all of Areas K and F and  Ihere are al leasl as many people in Ihe regional areas as in the  municipality so Ihe SCKI) should contribute at least matching  funds lo the Gibsons Library. This should he done through  Ihe Wesl Howe Sound Recreation Commission.  If the municipalities were providing funds al the 1986 provincial average Sechell would have a library grant of $44,000  from Ihe district municipality and a further $11,000 from the  SCKI) for the Halfmoon Bay residents. Gibsons would grant  $24,000 and another $30,000 would come from the SCRD for  Areas E and K.  Obviously we have a long way to go, but Ihe provincial  average should he our target. Neither is this a matler of  blame. Ihe library boards have been perhaps loo timid in  making their case and Ihe elected officials pre-oeeupied  elsewhere. The situation is disgraceful nonetheless and must  be rectified.  Serving the Sunshine Coast since 1945  i Coast News. Match 28,1988  Comment  Dilemma of  chinook stocks  In the battle over quotas and blame laying, ihe endangered chinook salmon is liable to be losl sigh! of and  possibly losl. Ii will do no good for the commercial  fishermen lo blame sports fishing, nor ihe sporlsfishernian  io blame the commercial, nor for cither to blame the seals.  Instead of wrangling over who is lo blame for the  declining stocks and even less positive wrangling over who  is io get the major share of those declining slocks,  something positive must be done.  From this perspective, that something positive musl firsl  of all be enhancement of the chinook environment, Il is  said lhal 75 per cent of salmon mortality lakes place in Ihe  fry stage before the fish ever get lo the sea lo be fought  over by their various predators,  As ihe venerable Mr. Fredericksen of Saltery Bay,  recently a visitor to the Pender Wildlife Club with the film  made about him, The Man Who Digs For Fish, proved  years ago, a good portion of lhal enormous percentage  never gels to river water bul is bound in gravel by changing  stream courses.  With a sensible and intelligent enhancement program  there can yel be enough wild chinooks for all.  Secondly, the herring roe fishery musl be looked ul  critically. For a very specialized market which possibly  could be served by kelp-raised herring roe and for a few  people who make enormous sums of money in a very short  lime, we wage war on the principle food fish of the ocean's  food chain.  Firsl enhance the Chinook's environmental beginnings  which can be done al modest cost, ihen take measures lo  sec the sea alive with herring for salmon and seal alike, and  ihen discuss how to share Ihe bounty.  We musl, in short, to be effective look lo the overall picture and long term solutions not for scapegoats nor selfish  gain.  5 YEARS AGO  About 60 people met in the library of the Roberts Creek  School lasl Tuesday to form the Sunshine Coast Peace  Committee. They ranged in age Irom early twenties to  mid-seventies.  Representatives of Inter-city Gas Corporation made a  presentation at last week's meeting of the Sunshine  Coast Regional District to rebut charges previously made  lhal IGC's propane lanks at Roberts Creek are unsafe.  Speaking on behalf of the company, vice-president  Bullen told the board that the company is so convinced  that the present site is safe, it is willing to spend $50,000  to beautify and landscape the area ar;d allow public access to a pier at the seaward end for tourists and wharl  fishermen.  10 YEARS AGO  The ferry service experienced some difficulties in the  lirst major holiday weekend of the year. An overflow  situation was reported on the first ferry out of Horseshoe  Bay on Friday morning but the major difficulty was experienced by those travellers going to Powell River.  15 YEARS AGO  The provincial government has purchased the town of  Ocean Falls for $1 million and will reactivate the  newsprint mill as soon as possible.  When discussing a subdivision bylaw al Sechelt council last week, the village clerk observed "soon land will  cost more than the home to be built on it."  20 YEARS AGO  Gibsons municipal council has proclaimed next week  as Cleanup and Paintup week. Under the signature of  Fred Feeney the proclamation asks residents of the  village to clear unsightly objects from their property and  to clean up and paint up generally.  25 YEARS AGO  Kenny Pennysaver announces "We have a new name  for our store: Ken's Lucky Dollar Store. We invite you to  participate in our three day opening sale".  30 YEARS AGO  A flowery promenade, winding around Sechelt's waterfront, is in future plans of the village commission, chairman Christine Johnstone said in a recent interview. The  commission is unanimous in its decision to make the  village a beauty spot on the highway for both tourists and  those who live here.  35 YEARS AGO  Celia Flumerlelt. Ihen editor in chiel of the Elphinslone  :sludenl newspaper, slarled her editorial Ihis week:  "There are more and more young men and women  graduating Irom high schools every year, and more and  more young people in our juvenile courts. In the face of  this, we wonder what is the matter with our educational  system. Could it be we are putting too much stress on  non-essentials, instead ol fitting the young people for  positions they will eventually take?  The Sunshine  liif  Published by GLASSFORD PRESS LTD.

VE GOT THE  PERFECT JOB FOR YOU//  Now it can be told  The lollowing slory goes  back lour or possibly livr; years.  Maybe more. The protagonist  in the lale has the right, Lord  knows, to correct me if 1  underestimate Ihe enormity of  my behaviour.  The protagonist is the good  guy in a slory, for those with liltle luste for literary terms.  In any case, and subject to  correction, on a Saturday morning in Ihe Coasl News office  some four or five years ago, 1  found myself in an expansive,  outgoing and friendly mood,  rare for a newspaper office a  das before production',  The respccled and much-  loved teacher of music, Jessie  Morrison ihen resident in Gibsons, now in Sechell, came in lo  place a classified ad. I wenl lo  help al the counter because il  was very busy.  In the course of laking the  classified Jessie and I gol talking aboul poetry for some  reason, and she confided thai  her very favourite poem was  The Songs of Hiawatha by  Henry Wadsworth Longfellow.  "I'll tell you whal, Jessie,"  said the expansive and well-  meaning Burnside, "you bring  in the book and I'll record il for  you on lape. I like reading  poclry aloud. Il would be a  pleasure."  "Are you sure?" said Jessie.  "Sure 1 will," said I.  And so il was, some four or  live years ago, lhal Jessie'  broughl lo ihe office her  treasured volume of Longfellow  and left il ill my keeping.  I had, of course, forgotten  just how long a poem il was lhal  I had offered lo record. One  hundred and fifty pages long. Ii  was a mountain I had  volunteered lo climb.  I made many false starts, losl  Ihe lapes of several beginnings;  slims as alderman and regional  director intervened and many  much less worthy rationalizations.  But the lime wenl by and  Jessie neither got her favourite  poem taped nor her beloved  volume back.  Time wenl inexorably by and  ii grew lo be that I cringed every  lime I saw Jessie, cringed wilh  guilt. I didn'l actually gel to Ihe  slage where I ducked inlo alleys  lo avoid her bul 1 came close.  Jessie, of course, was Ihe soul  of grace and patience. True her  skepticism grew, understandably I'm sure you will agree,  bul never did she berate. The  more gracious, patient and  sweel was she, ihe more  hangdog, guiltriddcn was I.  The lasl lime I saw her was  lasl month. I was enjoying a  business lunch in ihe Pebbles  Reslauranl in Sechell when  Jessie came by the table. For  one wild moment I considered  diving underneath the table bul  beller sense prevailed.  I met her eye quite bravely I  though!, while my body willed  inlo a hideous cringe.  She paused by ihe table and  kindly said:  "John, jusi give me ihe book  back."  "No Jessie, no," I declared  wildly, while my companions  looked al me in wonderment,  wondering what dark secrel was  being revealed here.  "No Jessie, I'm going lo do  it, honest I am."  "We'll see," she said, and  her patient skepticism was more  wounding lhan any lirade she  could have uttered.  Of course I could nol write  this dreadful lale if I hadn't  finally summoned all my  resources and my residual  decency and laped the poem -all  150 pages of It,  And what's more, once I gol  over the hump of starling I enjoyed doing it, I hadn't read the  piece in 35 years and had  forgotten not merely how long  il was, but how good.  By the time you read this ihe  lapes and the beloved book will  have been relumed lo the pa-  licnl lady they belong lo.  And, Jessie, il was afler all, a  pleasure. Enjoy.  A first-hand look  Wild Swans at Coole  Dedicated to Phil Sheridan  The trees are in their autumn beauty.  The woodland paths are dry.  Under the October twilight the water  Mirrors a still sky;  Upon the brimming water among the stones  Are nine and fifty swans.  The nineteenth Autumn has come upon me  Since I first made my count;  I saw, before I had well finished,  All suddenly mount  And scatter, wheeling, in great broken rings  Upon their clamorous wings.  I have looked upon those brilliant creatures.  And now my heart is sore.  All's changed since I, hearing at twilight.  The first time on this shore,  The bell-beat of their wings above my head.  Trod with a lighter tread.  Unwearied still, lover by lover.  They paddle in the cold.  Companionable streams or climb the air;  Their hearts have not grown old;  Passion or conquest, wander where they will,  Attend upon them still.  But now they drift on the still water  Mysterious, beautiful;  Among what rushes will they build.  By what lake's edge or pool  Delight men's eyes, when I awake some day  To find ihey have flown away?  William Butler Yeats  A visit to a fish processing plant  by Ken Collins  ll was 7:30 in the morning  one week ago loday when this  reporter found himself on a  wharf in Porpoise Bay watching  several thousand pounds of  large sea-grown rainbow Iroul  being pumped live ihrough a six  or eight inch hose from the  specially designed packer Trans  Aqu into large plastic toles of  near Ircezing water.  The occasion was a special invitation by Sechelt Processing  manager Ron Shelrud for Ihe  Coast News lo see first hand the  operalion of Iheir plant.  Only a few hours earlier these  brilliantly coloured fish cascading down the trough had been in  a local fish farm pen and in  anolher 36 hours mighl be  found on a dining plate as far  away as New York Cily.  "We lake as much care as  possible," explained my host.  He wenl on to explain excessive  stress during slaughtering could  change the taste and texture of a  fish the way it does with other  farm animals. This is one of the  reasons the water containing the  fish is kept as close as possible  lo freezing. Airstones attached  io lanks of carbon dioxide conlrol the waier temperature,  The tote is full and laken by  fork lift up lo the processing  planl a few hundred feci away.  Anolher tole is pul in ils place.  Silhouettes of round fal fish can  be briefly seen ihrough Ihe  translucent hose before the  Aqua Vac, a large shiny contraption predominant on deck,  throbs back inlo aclion. A few  minutes later anolher tote is  full.  The fish have been iransport-  ed in flooded holds on a specially designed vessel named Trans  Aqu . Skipper Rob Corlett has  been a commercial fisherman  for 15 years.  "We have been in service  since last July," said Corlett.  He would not give a dollar  figure as lo the investment in  the specialized vessel, but did indicate thai it was considerable  and they were still undergoing  constant experimentation to  provide a belter service.  II soon became obvious these  fish were destined for something better than a can. On a 38  foot West Coast l roller the fish  are hooked in the mouth and  then gaffed through the head  before being deftly flipped on  deck. They seldom come in ones  and Iwos so ihey lend lo pile up.  Two men work side by side in a  narrow cockpit al the rear of the  boal. Each man works his own  side running Ihree stainless steel  lines each of which can contain  six leaders, flashers and hooks.  If Ihe fish are biting you  don't slop lo clean and if you  are day fishing you don'l bother  with ice. Fish that arc iced may  stay in the hold up lo ten days.  In contrast the farm fish gel  pampered on iheir way to the  table. First the squirming fish is  lifted from the tote by one person and handed lo a second  whose job is lo give a single cul  through the gills with a short  three inch knife. On Ihis particular day the planl manager  himself stood by ensuring thai  there was a good reserve of  sharp knives.  "You are less likely to have  an accident with a sharp knife,"  he pointed out.  On a troller, if a fish is squirming, Ihe rule of thumb is to  swear and callously club il over  the head. Here people would  pause for a second and gel a  better grip. There was a lot of  laughter as flapping fish splash  ed  waler or sometimes even;  flopped loose on the stainless:  steel table.  Once Ihe gills were cul the.  fish was slipped inlo another  tole of ice waler where it stayed-  unlil thoroughly bled.  Then the whole operation-  shifted to another part of the  plant where the fish were gut']  ted. The belly was carefully cut;  open and the guts removed. The:  fish had been unfed for the  previous week to reduce bac-:  leria and firm up the flesh. A:  knife was run down the insideC;  of the back and that blootf;  removed with a specially adapt-;  ed spoon attached to running  waler. It was similar to what oc-;:  curs on a troller with a couple of'  exceptions.  There were no heaving decks:;  or any olher responsibilities::  other than making the right cut";  in Ihe fish. Also on a troller the;  fish are not thoroughly bled in-:  to water. Instead they are gilled,-:  gutted, and belly iced or sometimes even just sold in the round  and packed off to a processor  uncleaned.  To be continued...

In the fall of 1987, I visited  India and Bangladesh wilh my  husband. We visited Operation  Eyesight Universal sponsored  hospitals and eye camps, where  sight-giving calaracl operali mis  were performed.  ; 1 held a happy, once-blind  Four-year-old girl, who will now  be able to return to her village  and romp and play with her  Iriends. I held the hand of a  seven-year-old boy as he received the injection in his temple in  preparation for cataract  Surgery. He was looking forward lo school and learning.  A sixty-year-old woman will  pow be able lo see her grandson  and a man is looking forward to  reluming lo work lo support his  family. There were so many  quid, bandaged patients all  awaiting the day when Ihe bandages would be removed - the  final slep in this Irip from  darkness into light.  Operation Eyesight Universal  is a registered Canadian Charily  carrying on very intensive blindness prevention programs,  working in thirteen countries of  the Developing World, bringing  light and new life io Ihe  destitute blind.

As the meeling  ended and we headed for Ihe exit, Ihe light wenl out.  We were feeling our way  along in the darkness when a  gentle voice said, "Take my  hand, I will lead you." A Leo  guided me safely down the aisle  and up the few steps lo the lob  by. The lights came on, he  disappeared into the crowd and  we were whisked off to our next  appointment.  Later, as I went over this  brief encounter with darkness, I  realized that this is whal Operation Eyesight is all about.  Operation Eyesight Universal,  with the help of the people of  Canada is saying lo ihe destitute  blind of ihe world - "Take our  hands, we will lead you from  darkness inlo light."

He  also sel as a broader goal "the  reformation of manners", by  which he meant addressing the  underlying causes of all social  evils, particularly alcoholism  and child prostitution.  However, it was the slave  irade ihai became the focus of  attention. Armed with graphic  first hand accounts of the inhumane conditions on slave  ships, Wilbert'orce was nevertheless ridiculed by ihose who  denied the credibility of the  evidence and warned that abolition would destroy a trade on  which iwo thirds of the nation's  economy depended.  Wilbert'orce made no secrel  of the fad lhal his abhorrence  of Ihe slave Irade arose from  deeply held religious convictions  about Ihe value of all human  life. The response of his contemporaries has an ironically  modern ring lo it. He should  nol seek lo impose his personal  morality on others.  "Humanity," said the Earl of  Abingdon, "is a private feeling,  not a public principle lo acl  upon." Lord Melbourne  agreed, "Things have come to a  pretty pass when religion is  allowed lo invade public life."  James   Boswell,   Samuel  Johnson's biographer, penned  ihe  following  snide piece of  verse:  Go, W wilh narrow skull,  Go home and preach away al  Hull.  No longer in the Senate cackle  In strains lhal suit the tabernacle;  I hale your little willing sneer,  Your   perl   and  self-sufficienl  leer.  Mischief lo trade sils on your  lip,  Insects will gnaw  the noblest  ship;  Go, W���, begone, for shame,  Thou dwarf with big resounding  name.  Al Ihe risk of appearing to  lake   political   cartoons   100  seriously, 1 find a striking  parallel between the above and  your March 21 cartoon with ils  typical caricature of ihose mosl  publicly Identifiable by iheir sup-  porl of the rights of the most  vulnerable and defenseless  among us, as if concern for the  unborn did not logically and in  practice extend to olher suffering and oppressed members of  the human race.

Gibbons  Editor:  Your editorial of March 21,  directed our attention lo Isabel  Ralph's article on Ireland, A  Review of Irish Tragedy.  Mrs. Ralph obviously wrole  ihis article with' ihe greaiesi  sincerity, but 1 feel ii must be  pointed out lhal it contains a  number of historical and factual errors. The obvious bias  which permeates the piece is, in  fact, symptomatic of Ihe very  tragedy your editorial decries.  I agree with Mrs. Ralph thai  Ian Paisley and his ilk continue  lo fuel ihe fires of ihis situation,  bul sueh a simplistic, error-filled  version of a complex and deep-  rooted problem does liltle to encourage understanding.

These winler dwellers have probably now reached a point  where they are on their own.  An article recently in the city  paper publicized the return  again of the swallows to Capis-  irano mid the annual fanfare.  We, in turn, are watching close-'  ly for the return of our summer-  dwelling hummingbirds.  They seem to arrive individually in specific locations prior to  the mass arrival. The first  sighting has been reported from  Pender Harbour, so it's time to  get out the feeders and boil up  some nectar for them.  These wee creatures are no  fools. If your neighbor's mix is  two io one, and yours is four lo  one, you will probably attract  few birds, even though the  Audubon Society recommends  four water to one sugar or  honey.  For those of us who cater to  these little hummers, we are  rewarded by being able to watch  the aerial antics of the male bird  as he climbs and dives to and  from an altitude of some thirty  or forty feet lo impress his intended mate.  Then again, it is quite impressive to have fifteen to twenty  birds all trying to get their fill at  dusk, to hold them over till  morning. At this time, with  patience, the bolder ones will sit  on your finger as ihey feed.  PLANTS  For those of our members  who will be helping with the  supply of plants and other  things for our Spring Plant Sale  on May 7, it's certainly not too  early to be potting surplus items  now, in order that a good sturdy  selection will be available for  the sale at that time.  Please  be  sure  that   your  donations are well rooted, so  lhal our customers will not be  disappointed. Bear in mind also  lhal your committees have one  thought in mind, and that is to  procure funds for our new activity cenlre, so judge yourselves  accordingly.  DISCRIMINATION  Really there is no such thing  as discrimination in our organization. Some of our members  who have been in Branch 69 as  charier members and some of  us who have arrived on the  scene al a later dale, are probably more familiar with anniversaries, birthdays, etc. of  some of our members, than  Ihose who have arrived as  members al a later dale. Over a  period of years, birthdays and  anniversaries become a I radii ion  in our branch and provide an  opportunity io celebrate Ihe  happy occassion with those of  us to whom it applies. A Thursday morning muffin wilh a candle and a happy birlhday chorus  may nol seem loo important,  bul can gladden the hearl of the  recipient, If your particular anniversary is known ii will certainly be recognized for posterity. Nuff said!  CAUTION  A half page advertisement in  one of our local publications  addressed to seniors particularly, is the result and an aftermath  of local protest caused by high  pressure ladies applied, on a so  called voluntary basis, by an  established insurance company  on our membership.  Granted lhal the individual  may be voluntarily able to approve or order ihe agenl off Ihe  premises, il would seem on the  surface lhal the services offered  are superfluous over and above  our Provincial Medical Services  Plan. It would also seem lhal if  enough of our seniors are talked  into going along with iheir proposition, thai the next step  could quite possibly be a reduc  tion in services by our governmenl plan.  Subscribers io the Elder  Statesman should be mosl  concerned wilh a publication  lhal sponsors a purely business  transaction, which involves all  seniors in the province of B.C.  Sponsorship of senior oriented  publication could and possibly  will be detrimental lo the  welfare of a large block ol  senior citizens. Personally, I  have cancelled my subscription  lo Ihe Elder Sialesman on (his  issue.  ttEirt  OVERRUN BY  BELGIAN  CHOCOLATE  BVNNlESi  ��� Eggs  ��� Easter Baskets  ^itia i !Bon Bom  -ft!

Plant seeds  and place in a warm place indoors, on a window sill, out of  drafts, or outdoorsjdirecily in a  warm protected area. Remember very fine seed could be mixed  wilh a lablespoon of dry sand to  distribute evenly. Do not cover  wilh soil, firsl moisten the soil.  Some seeds take quite a lime  lo germinate, be patient. We all  have failures, which helps us to  grow with the lessons we have  learned.  In ihis day of weighl conlrol,  diets, and awareness of our  health, il is io our advantage to  eat wholesome fresh and available vegetables and fruits.

The sailing will be done on  ihe catamaran launched lasl fall  afler six years of building in the  attic of their home.  "Five thousand hours of  work logged in its  construclion," said Roy. "The  hulls are a sandwich construclion wiih foam core...thirty-  four fool six by twenty-foot six  wilh swing masl, fifty-two  feet."  "The boat was launched lasl  October on our ihirly-sixlh  wedding anniversary," said  Shirley, "and our five children  and iheir families all came from  Vancouver Island to help us  celebrate bolh occasions."  Moored at Gibsons Marina  just opposite the beach at Pro-  wse Road, the Gilbert and  Sullivan, as Roy has named the  catamaran, has been undergoing trial runs for several  weekends in nearby waters.  Shirley Mills has jusi retired,  loo, from her work in the central supply departmenl in St.  Mary's. Trained in Lancashire  in Sick Children's nursing,  Shirley conlinued in the profession as family demands allowed  and has been on staff at St.  Mary's since their arrival here  fourteen years ago.  Before coming to Gibsons,  Roy was secretary-treasurer for  seven years in Courtenay School  District, and before lhal  secretary-treasurer for seven  years as well in Dawson Creek  School District.  Although he had apprenticed  in Britain with Avro Aviation  Company and had afler thai  been eight years in the RAF, latterly with ihe rank of flight-  lieutenant, Roy found ihere was  no employment available in  aviation when he and his family  arrived in I959. Work expected  as flight navigator with a Canadian airline was not forthcoming.  "I thought of teaching to  support my young family since l  had enjoyed my time of instructing in the RAF Technical College. But that would require  several years attendance at the  university. From lhal I lurned  lo school dislricl administration  which I could learn as assistant  on ihe job. And lhal became my  career in Canada, and a very  satisfactory one, loo."  Roy said he had wanled lo  live in Canada ever since he had  done his air force navigation  training in Winnipeg in  1951-1952.  "Now that retirement has arrived I can return to helping  here in Scouting," said Roy.  "I'm a member of the Baden-  Powell Guild, and I've been  devoted to the movement since  my first days in Cubs at the age  of seven. The evening work required in my job has kept me  out of active participation but  now I certainly have the time  for it again."  Good   sailing   Roy   and  Shirley.

P ���  pecentralization causes  spat at SCRD  ; "I don't think we should be  doing an end run around the  duly elected body and have  government by executive appointment," Director Gordon  Wilson told the board at last  week's meeting of the Sunshine  Coast Regional District. Wilson  urged the board not to participate in Minister of State,  Ejlwood Veitch's appointment  Of two advisory boards to deal  with economic diversification  and improvement of services.  ���' In a letter written to the  SCRD, Veitch explained the  poncept. "These two groups  Will serve as talent pools from  Which we will select task forces  lip study problems and issues,  explore ideas and recommend  ways of diversifying local and  regional economies and enhancing services such as education  and health care, justice, support  Cor the elderly and so on."  Wilson suggested that the  board respond with the names  Of members and the chairman  from the Economic Development Commission for the  economic issues, the school  board for education issues, the  hospilal board for health issues,  the Community Services Board  for issues relating to the elderly  and social services, and suggested for the justice issues  Veitch should dial 1-800-GOD.  "We have in place already,  duly elected representatives  whose responsibility it is to look  at those issues," he stated firmly. "If the minister wishes to  assist this area in any of these  sectors he should deal with the  duly elected people who deal  with those issues. If we become  a part of this, we will be tacitly  accepting government by appointment which, in my mind,  is undemocratic."  Area E Director Jim Gurney  told the board that at the recent  meeting of the Association of  Vancouver Island Municipalities, of which the SCRD is a  member, it appeared that the  economic regions concept is going to fall apart, because the  groups that are supposed to implement it, don't know anything  about it.  Chairman Peggy Connor  cautioned the board, "If we  don't have someone on that  board, I think we'll be sorry."  Bul Ihe board voted to send a  letter to Veitch suggesting that  he select his committees from  duly elected boards which deal  with the issues of concern.

The discussions about the  Minister of State's letter prompted an angry outburst from  Area C Director Stan Dixon,  who took exception to the attitude he perceived was being  expressed toward the provincial  government. He especially  criticized Gordon Wilson,  whom he accused of using the  issue to promote his personal  politics.  At the conclusion of Dixon's  lengthy lecture, Wilson spoke  once more, insisting that he felt  that he was accurately representing the feelings of this constituents, that he reflected his personal politics no more than Mr.  Dixon, and "1 will not support  government through executive  order."  Timber  harvest  concern  Continued from page 1  have resulted in a recommendation lo the ministry that the  allowable cut in this area be  "drastically reduced".  A representative from the  forest service told the Forestry  advisory committee last fall that  this office can't find enough  large timber for the next 15  years. The principle that the  forest service office has been  operating under is "you don't  cut more in a year than grows in  a year".  This allows for a sustained  cut, which provides steady work  for the logging industry,  avoiding 'boom and bust' situations, and a steady renewal of  the resource which prevents environment damage.  At the Forestry Advisory  Committee, District Manager  Barry Custance told members  that it is, unlikely lhat the  ministry will be reducing the  allowable cut in this area to any  great degree.  In his letter to the SCRD, the  minister confirmed those  statements when he wrote,  "With the expected increase in  volume of timber available for  the SBFEP, the Sechelt District  plans to develop areas in Jervis  Inlet, Deserted River and Brit-  tain River."

The  Minisler was asked if his  minislry was working with Ihe  municipalities lo help with Ihe  sewage disposal problem.  "We don't have any evidence  lhal pollution is a major con-  Iribuling factor," replied Siddon, "before we spend millions  of dollars on alternatives, we'd  have to have clear evidence lhal  il would work, and we haven'l  gol thai."  There was obvious hostility  expressed when Area A director  Gordon Wilson made a presen-  lalion lo the minisler. Wilson  questioned Siddon on the lack  of implemenlalion of recommendations made by Ihe Pearce  Commission in 1982, and ihe  lack of local fisheries staff to  enforce ihe new restrictions.  Neither question was  answered al ihe lime bul later in  ihe meeling, as more speakers  raised Ihe lack of staffing issue,  Siddon burst out, "I see Mr.  Wilson shaking his head. If you  have some recommendations  we'd like lo hear Ihem, Mr.  Wilson."  "As a mailer of fact I have  six," replied Wilson moving  loward the microphone provided for speakers.  "You can gel to the back of  the line ihen," replied Siddon.  As the nexl speaker finished  his questioning, Pierre Asselin,  Assislanl Deputy Minisler of  Pacific and Freshwater Fisheries  and masler of ceremonies, informed the meeting lhal ihe  minisler would have lo leave  soon, so Ihere would be lime for  only ihree more speakers.  iv wiui the US  5.

He pointed oul lhal Ihe!  Department of Fisheries and  Oceans lias 8(X) personnel in Ihis;  region, costing $130,000,000  annually.

Koch  looks  ahead  "Il is going lo be an exciting  six months," says Sechell  Mayor Bud Koch concerning  the many municipal projects  starting to lake shape.  Block 7 is Mill ihe big one on  Koch's mind bul ihere also is  the golf course, the airport expansion and the canal study.  According lo Koch the land  has become available for the  golf course for a dollar a year  and the Minister of State has  come up with $40,000 for a  canal study. The final airport  expansion reporl should be  ready by April 15.  Mayor Koch lold Ihe Coast  News on Friday thai he envisioned Block 7 coming aboul  through a joinl venture with  "offshore money". Al first he  was vague about where the  money would come from bul  finally conceded il would be  from somewhere in the Pacific  Rim.  "There could be up lo len  families involved," he said explaining lhal Ihese are people  who wanted to gain citizenship  by bringing money Into Ihe  country.  "Bul it's not likely lhat any  of Ihem would come lo  Sechell," Koch said. They  would probably settle instead in  either Toronto or Vancouver.  "These people are looking  for long term investment and  are satisfied with a far lower  return on their money," he  said. "They do nol, however,  wanl to go inlo an area unin-  viied or unwanted."  Koch admitted, however,  thai he had yel lo gain the participation of either ihe Departmenl of Immigration or the  Ministry of Economic Development.  Once completed, though, it  would lie in with Rockwood  Lodge and help make Sechell a  destination point he said.  As far as Ihe canal sludy  goes, Koch said he would be approaching the federal governmenl for matching funds.

At  last week's meeling of the  Regional Board a letter was  received from Richardson in  which he complained that  "Wood Bay Salmon Farms had  fish delivered to their farm on  March 18, 1988 by Ihe ship  named 'Golden Fleece'. At 3:30  am they started up a large pump  mounted on the deck of the  Golden Fleece and pumped fish  through a large pipe (approximately 8 inch diameter) from  the boat to the farm pens. This  makes considerable noise sufficient to make sleeping difficult  or impossible. This carried on  until seven am al which time 1  leave for work."  When contacted by the Coast  News, the person answering the  phone at Wood Bay explained  that the company would ralher  not make comments on Ihe  allegations, and lhat no one  with the authority lo do so was  in the office.

"1 have no intention of being  driven from my home by the incompetence of various levels of  government and/or the arrogant and possible vindictive  actions of this company."

He is grateful for the  fact that over the years they  have kept operating during  some hard financial times. And  he is grateful for the new expansion at the Port Mellon pulp  mill which is the result of  merger with OJ1 Paper of  Tokyo.  Al last week's meeting of the  regional board, he put forth a  motion that the SCRD write a  letter expressing appreciation  for those things. Gurney lold  Ihe meeling that "OJI is feeling  apprehensive aboul community  reaction to the proposed expansion, and we should send ihem a  letter expressing our appreciation for investing in our community, and for the commitment that Canadian Forest Products has shown to this community over the years."  The motion was seconded by  Gibsons Mayor Diane Strom,  but questioned by Gordon  Wilson. "If the intent is to let  OJI paper know they're  welcome here, 1 agree. But, I  don'l think il should be related  in any way Io Mr. Stewarl's  presenlaiion to the board."

The Sunshine  in  Second Section  No more in-camera  EDC opens meetings  Tt --- ��-*.�����  The press was again invited to  attend meetings of the  Economic Development Commission last week, after a policy  set at a previous meeting lo  meet only in-camera was reconsidered and withdrawn.  Two issues were discussed  before the press was allowed inlo the meeting, and Chairman  Maurice Egan filled reporters in  on whal had been discussed.  A tentative selection has been  made on a new Economic  Development Officer, and a  final decision may be announced as eary as next week. The  commission has been operating  without paid staff since Irene  Lugsdin lefl lasl September.  The commission also accepted the resignation of Bob  Mason, who ran the Small  Business Centre. Egan explained that the centre will be temporarily closed while the commission finds a new manager.  He suggested that by reducing  the operating hours, the centre  may be able to stay open wilh its  current funding until August.  The Economic Development  Commission and the Sefchelt  Chamber of Commerce have  decided to form a partnership to  produce a high-quality infofma-  tion booklet about the Sunshine  Coasl. The idea came (rom  Chamber of Commerce  employee, Gail Sangers, (who  managed io acquire $20,00t) in  funding for compiling data for  Ihe booklet.  The Economic Development  Commission agreed last weak to  fund the printing of the borjklel  and io hire a production  manager.  Chamber representative Ronnie Paetkau explained that; the  publication would be high  quality and would include such  diverse information as what  schools are in the area, medical  facilities, and economic sectors.  The booklet would be sent to  people requesling information  on the Sunshine Coast, who  might be interested in moVing  here or establishing a business in  this area.

School budget causing concern  On March 11, the Board of  School   Trustees   adopted   a  preliminary    budget, , of,  | $14,938,979, a 9.63 petcehHtp  , crease over last year's figure of  $13,626,873. This would result  in a tax rate of 9. II for 1988, an  'increase of 16.3 percent over  last year's rate of 7.83.  But at the March 23 meeting,  trustees decided to rethink these  figures. Handing over the gavel,  Chairman Maureen Clayton  proposed to reduce the budget  by $500,000. "Last year" said  Clayton, "we got caught up.  We should not expect taxpayers  to support such a large increase  two years in a row. This will still  leave us with a budget of  $1,100,000."  Trustee Lynn Chapman questioned the reasons for the increase. "1 will be willing to support you" she said to Clayton,  "if I can be sure no essential  services will be cut. We need a  review to find out what is going  on."  Community  Futures  appoints  Chairman Bill McKinnon announces the appointment of  Sharon Sawchuk as  manager/coordinator of the  Sunshine Coasl Community  Futures Committee. The appointment became effective  March 14, 1988.  The Community Futures  Committee was established in  order to assess the economic  needs of the Sunshine Coast. A  strategy for recovery will be  developed followed by an implementation phase.  Mrs. Sawchuk is a recent arrival to the coast and was  previously employed by the Ontario Ministry of Municipal Affairs as a Community Planner  responsible for physical  revitalization programs in five  Ontario counties. She has also  held the position of coordinator for the Downtown  Imprbvement Area in Niagara  Falls, Ontario.  A strong believer in community activity, Ms Sawchuk  has been active with the Sechelt  Food Bank and the Sunshine  Coast Aquaculture Association.  She is currently a tutor in the  ABLE (Adult Basic Education)  program.  Trustee Pat Stewart summed  it up by saying "We need public  support,. A majqr tax increase at  this time is not in the best interests of the District."  In other School Board news,  discussing a further request by  the Parents Group of Pender  Harbour Secondary School lo  ban student smoking, the Board  decided that it would not be  necessary to change the regulations, as the means to effect the  ban already exist. Smoking in  schools is only permitted in  'designated area', so it would  only mean that the school  would need to eliminate the  designated area to effectively  ban smoking in the school.  A letter from the B.C. School  Trustees' Association informed  the Board that their motions for  the upcoming Annual General  Meeting have been included in  the agenda. The local Board  proposed that the Ministry provide funding for counsellors in  elementary schools and that  ICBC re-introduce incentives  for persons who take driver  training programs.  A letter from the Sechelt Indian Band disclosed that they  will soon be seeking a meeting  with the Board to discuss the  nature and jurisdiction of the  Sechelt Indian Government  District and the developmental  operations over which it will  have control.  The Vancouver Foundation is  again providing the District with  a grant of $1000 from their Arts  in Education program. Trustee  Pat Stewart proposed that the  Board look into the possibility  of obtaining grants from other  groups such as the Koerner  Foundation.  The Board approved a request by the Give Peace a Dance  project to approach local high  schools for support.  The B.C. Ambulance Service  requested endorsement of their  Ride of Your Life Program,  whereby ambulance attendants  provide a free chauffeur service  to students' during graduation  weekends in June. The Board  approved, though not without  misgivings. Said Superintendent  Holmes, "Is the Board endorsing behaviour which is less than  salutory?" Al Loyd agreed.  "Are we saying...'it's alright to  go out and get tanked up on  grad night because we'll give  you a ride home...'?"  The question of daily PE in  the schools came in for lengthy  discussion. Holmes pointed out  to the Board that the Ministry  guidelines for PE are often difficult to put into practice due to  complications in scheduling  gym time and the need to fit in  other special subjects. The  Board endorsed a plan to assist  principals and teachers to find  more gym time and to upgrade  teacher's qualifications in PE  education.

"It was actually a  filmed play called Red Emma,  by Carol Polk. Alan king  directed the production. Il was  a musical and ii didn'l hang  together too well. Thai was my  firsl lime in front of the  cameras."  In 1T6. Mancuso made his  second film, ihe George Bloom-  field CBS production of Clifford Odei's Paradise Lost. He  played the pivotal role of  Kevvpie and il broughl him to  national attention for Ihe first  time. "Thai was a much better  property. 1 had a chance to  work with some real pros like  Nerimiah Persoff and Helen  Burns. Il was an opportunity to  show what I could really do and  il broughl me a lot of recognition."  On the strength of his good  reviews. Mancuso began hanging around New York and got  to know such luminaries as  Robert De Niro, aboul whom,  he has some very definite opinions. "I met De Niro when he  was in training for Raging Bull.  He irained as a boxer for ihree  years before ihey even made the  picture. Then ihey had lo close  down for six monihs while De  Niro gained ihe weight io play  ihe lasl half.  "I like Bobby De Niro very  much hut I don'l like everything  he does. I like him in Martin  Scorcese films but, to tell you  the truth, he irritates me in a loi  of olher roles. In Deer Hunter,  he played a Ukranian and he  seemed about as Slavic as ihe  New York Times. In The last  Tycoon, he played a Jewish  immigrant and he wasn'l convincing there either.  "I had a chance to link in  with Martin Scorcese myself  around this same period. We  met several times and kicked  around film ideas bul unforlu-  nately, nothing ever came of  ii".  In 1978, Nick Mancuso gol  an important break. Director  .Anhur Hiller chose him for a  starring role in Nightwing. a  thriller based on a best-selling  novel dealing with actual vampire bats and the threatened  decline of the .American Indian.

The resultant  picture was a flaw and did poorly at the box office but it was  still an important milestone in  Mancuso's career. It was his  first big budget American film.  It also brought him into contact  with many important people in  the business.  " l ran inlo Jack Nicholson  when I first went io Hollywood.  He'd jusi done One Flew Over  The Cuckoo's Nest'.

He  slopped, came towards me and  pointed al his vvrisl. I guess  ihere was somelhing wrong wiih  his other arm. His face was  turned a bil away from me bui I  noticed he was impeccably  dressed. I pulled back his sleeve  and looked at his watch. Ii was  a really expensive watch. Then I  focussed on his face and realized who he was I said 'Thank  you but you're...you're...' It  was Fred Astaire.  "He jusi gave a smile and a  sort of wave and walked away  again. His back was still straight  and his legs were still fluid. Such  a cool old dude. Fabulous!"  "I had ihe opportunily to  meel Harold Hecht. He is one  of ihe greal old lime producers.  He did Marty, Sweet Smell of  Sucess, The Crimson Pirate and  a lot of good films. We became  good friends. He was  marvellous and had a real  knowledge of Ihe medium. He  knew all aboul writing, directing, choreography and  everything. Hecht worked his  way up from the bonom and  learned every aspect of the  business. But he couldn't get a  film off the ground today."

It also hurts like the  dickens running through all  those blockades head first.  If you were born when the  Sun was passing through Aries,  you know what you want; you  know where you should be;  what you can't understand is  why your nearest and dearest  friends seem so 'unsupportive'.  The fact is, that if you could  slow down just a tad, you'd see  that your friends and family are  attempting to suggest alternate  routes around the obstacles so  that you can arrive at your  destination with fewer bruises  and black eyes.  Pointing out obstacles to you  is not necessarily an act designed to restrain you. But you have  to realize that your excessive  energy and apparent lack of  concern for niggling details sort  of worries those around you.  The trick is to learn how to  control and direct that energy so  that it works for you. A planning stage and clearly set goals  can help you to avoid confusion  and unnecessary dissipation of  your energy.

Remember, the object of the  exercise is to accomplish your  goals, not to win a war. You  may have to control your  tongue and use diplomacy in  some instances. This is not  'playing their game', it's just  plain smart. When Frank  Sinatra sang 'I did it my way',  he sang it to a soft melody  -right? No drums, no bagpipes.  The point is to reach your  goal, not slay the dragons on  the way. Perhaps, when about  to handle a situation where you  know that you're angry, you  should prepare by rehearsing  the upcoming scene with a non-  Aries friend. He or she can  point out when your approach  is liable to obscure the issue and  make you unnecessary enemies,  or simply turn people off.

One of the nicest things about eating at the  Cedars Pub is that you get to enjoy the sunny (we were  lucky) greenery of their tropical arboretum, presided over  by the glorious giant brass parrot. Right away one feels  relaxed and away from it all.  And then the food arrives. The Cedars has one of the  most complete and varied lunch menus on the coast, and it  includes six dinner entrees and a weekend and holiday  brunch menu, too.  I simply can't resist the shrimp and cheese croissant,  ($4.95) and this time chose the crispy fresh salad as accompaniment rather than the Cedar's great fries or soup. The  shrimp was very fresh and plentiful, the croissant flakey,  and the dill pickle was a beaut I This just may be my very  favourite lunch.  My companion chose one of new chef Robert Wilson's  (formerly of Vancouver's 'Salvador Deli') daily specials,  Breaded Pork Cutlets, served with mashed potatoes and  lots of gravy, apple sauce and salad ($3.95), preceeded by  thick and spicy country rice soup ($1.95) almost a hearty  meal in itself. He had intended eating only part of the bowl  of soup to leave room for the main course, but couldn't  stop, and from the delicious spoonful he gave me, I knew  why. When he could be persuaded to stop eating his main  course and talk, "entirely satisfying, perfect" and a  number of "mmm's" were all he could say. All that was  left for Manners the Butler was a spoonful of potatoes, the  portions are that generous.  Anyone who enjoys good food should visit the Cedars at  the first opportunity. The selection is wonderful, the quality and presentation first-class, and the taste is delicious!!  Average meal prices quoted do not include liquor.

The  weather co-operaied with us by  not raining on the last day of  soccer. The year end tournament is a nice way to end the  soccer season, all the teams gol  three games each and even if  you lost all three games the  players still felt satisfied.  Afler all the games were over  (about 3 pm) the trophies for  the tournament and the league  were given out. I'll start with the  6 and 7 year olds. There was no  trophy for the league in this age  group because it is a noncompetitive age group (no  weekly scores are kept). We did  however give out medals to the  winners of the tournament, the  winning team was Frank  Dixon's team. Good going  team. In the 8 and 9 year olds  there is a perpetual trophy for  the tournament as well as the  league. We also give keeper  trophies to the league winners.  The winning team for the league  as well as for the tournament is  Nick's Shell.  In the 10 and 11 year old age  group we gave out a perpetual  trophy for the tournament as  well as the league and keeper  trophies to the league winners as  well. In this age group like the  8 and 9's, one team took both  irophies, the winning leam was  Frank   Hoehne's  team.  Congratulations team.  For those oul there that were  following the scores in the paper  and were wondering about the  10 and II year old team lhal  had all loses, no ties, no wins,  well unfortunately we lost all  three games in the tournament  so we kept a perfect score of 20  losses, no ties, no wins. Bul I  have to say I was proud to be  their coach because even though  we lost all our games they kept  on coming out on game days  and giving it their best try.  In the 12 and 13 year old age  group we didn't give oul  perpetual irophies because this  was the first year we had this  age group and we don't know if  we'll have enough players or  coaches next year so we gave  out medals for the league winners and medals for the tournament winners. The league winners were GBS coached by John  Nickerson. The lournament  winners were Elphi Rec coached  by Jim Brown and Dennis Cotter. Congratulations to both  teams for showing us sportman-  ship and dedication throughout  the year.  Thanks to all the people that  officiated at the games, without  you people the coaches end up  coaching and trying to be the ref  all at once, and it just isn't fair  to either team. Besides a lot of  us coaches have never played  the game, it's one thing to read  the rules and tell the kids them,  it is another thing to go on to  the field and try to interpet  them. Thanks again Refs.  Remember uniforms have to  be given back lo the coach and  watch the paper in September  for Soccer registration.

IF WE RE HOT CAREFUL,1  A GULF CHMUUK W  All along the B.C. coast, the  Department of Fisheries and  Oceans is recording significant increases in salmon stocks. The Department's salmon enhancement and conservation  programs are achieving an excellent record  of success. Through responsible management  and effective conservation techniques, these  prized fish will continue to be a great resource  for B.C.'s future.  In the lower Georgia Strait, however, the  chinook stocks have continued to decline.The  Gulf chinook is more than a magnificent fish; it  is a symbol of the kind of life British Columbians  enjoy. It is a part of the province's identity and  history. To preserve runs of salmon from lower  Georgia Strait rivers including the Squamish,  Cowichan and Nanaimo, the Department has  developed a special, intensive plan for conservation and enhancement. It is a plan that will -  and must-work.  The Gulf chinook  needs special protection to  survive into the 1990s.  Of all salmon stocks, the chinook from  lower Georgia Strait are most vulnerable to overfishing. Almost all of these chinook remain in  the Strait, rather than migrating to the relative  safety of the open Pacific. This means the Gulf  chinook can be caught year-round- throughout  ils life cycle. Enhancement and conservation  programs that have worked so effectively to  build up other species have proven insufficient  to protect these chinook.  Over the last ten years, the number of chinook caught in the Strait has declined by 75%,  to approximately 160,000 fish last year, with  only an estimated 4,300 lower Georgia Strait  chinook escaping to spawn in 1987.  Without immediate, effective action, wild  stock of chinook from rivers in lower Georgia  Strait will decline below numbers sufficient to  have any hope of regeneration.  The problem is compounded by the fact that  the chinook is one of the most thrilling fish in  the world to catch. And the Gulf Chinook's home  is surrounded by major urban centres. So naturally sport fishermen have had a major impact  on the species.  Government surveys over the last several  years show sport fishermen have been taking  approximately 59% of the lower Georgia Strait  chinook stocks. Commercial fishermen have  averaged 29%.The remainder are caught in various other fisheries.  For the Gulf chinook to return to its former  abundance, it is imperative that the numbers  caught be reduced this year by 20%, minimum.  We must act decisively now, and all groups of  fishermen must cooperate-or rebuilding will be  impossible. With conservation now, we will all  share the long-term benefits.

The Department's tough, fair new program  combines intensive conservation and enhancement methods. It will affect all groups who catch  chinook: sport and commercial fishermen as  well as native fishermen.  Conservation tagging: Fishermen will be  required to buy special conservation tags to fasten to all chinook caught in commercial, native  and sport fisheries. It will be an offense to be in  possession of untagged chinook, and maximum  penalties will be sought for violators. The tags  will raise awareness of the necessity for conservation, as well as providing vital catch information for Department scientists. Sold for $1 each,  the tags will also generate revenue to help support the intense enhancement program.  Reduced sport fishing limits; Sport fishermen in Georgia Strait will be permitted to catch  a maximum eight chinook in 1988. (Outside  the Strait, the annual limit will remain at 30.)  Further, the Department is consulting  with the sport fishing community on other measures required to protect stocks, such as  restricting devices and techniques that catch  chinook with such precision that the "sport"  is diminished.  increased closures: The areas and spans of  time of spot closures will be extended to  protect chinook in the lower Strait returning to  home spawning grounds.  Commercial and Native fisheries restrictions:  Both of these sectors will share in the conservation program. Catch cutbacks are being  determined in consultation with commercial  and native fisheries representatives.  Together we can  restore the Gulf chinook  by 1998.  These special enhancement initiatives are  aimed at increasing stocks of Strait of Georgia  chinook by approximately 75,000 to 175,000  adult fish.The increase will be evident by 1990,  and will reach the full level by 1995.  With the cooperation of all groups of fishermen, in just a few years the conservation and  enhancement program will result in many more  chinook for everyone to catch.

HWY 101, GIBSONS      tKLlSUT  Pender Harbour customers    ooc itcCi  COLLECT.       OOD-iOtW  The Pender Harbour Lioness  Club, unlil recently, had raised  funds and taken on the project  of restoring the Irvine's Landing School Hall to its original  condilion. Some money had  been received from ihe Heritage  Society, building inspectors  from the regional district and  the school board had inspected  the building and given their advice. And contractors had been  brought in to give estimates on  ihe work involved.  Bul recently, it was  discovered that excessive dry rot  existed all along the north side  of ihe building under the roof.  "That's when", Director Gor-'  don Wilson told the Economic  Development Commission  (EDC) lasl week, "Ihey decided  that the cost of restoring the  school might be much higher  than originally anticipated,"  and they decided, reluctantly, to  abandon the project.  Wilson told the commission  that he'd still like to pursue the  idea of the restoring the school,  with the idea of incorporating it  into a real tourist attraction.  He suggested that the school  was in an ideal location to have  as part of a museum and park.  The maritime Society's project  of rebuilding the HMS  Discovery could also be located  there.  The EDC gave their approval  in principle for Wilson to pursue the idea and gather information and cost estimates.

William Vander Zalm  Premier  Victoria, B.C.  Dear Premier VanderZalm:  ,>'��� On January 4, 1988 I wrote a  ^letter to you which asked one  : simple question. Do you intend  ;lo initiate a full and indepen-  ;denl public inquiry into Ihe Co-  quihalla scandal?. 1 politely requested a prompt reply. I dou-  ���'Jjlc-regisiered the letter, and 1  i received verification lhat your  office received  ihe letter  on  , January 6, 1988.  I Rave now received your let-  . ler of reply daled March 8,  1988. I thank you for Ihe reply  although I find ihe response  time exceedingly slow considering ihe large office staff you are  reported to have.  Your Idler of reply contains  only one short pertinenl  paragraph.  "I would like to advise you  thai ihe report on this matter by  Inquiry Commissioner Douglas  McKay has been recenlly received and is being carefully reviewed."  I find it virtually inconceivable thai you are advising  me lhat on March 8, 1988 you  have only "recently received"  the McKay Commission Report  REMEMBER:  It you're going to  gamble with your  SEPTIC TANK  a flush  is better  than a  13 full house.  4  ' BONNIEBROOK  ; INDUSTRIES ltd  lor Septic Tank Pumping  | Ask For Lucky Larry 886-706%  and lhal you are still studying  Ihis document.  The people of British Columbia want and deserve answers.  A full and independent inquiry  is required. If ihe legislature was  deceived by leading Social  Credit parly members, then the  guilty people must be exposed  and appropriale actions laken.  As you are well aware Ihe  legislature is made up of elected  Info not  enough  Editor:  The information pul forward  by Ihe Departmenl Of Fisheries  and Oceans in ihe March 21  issue of the Coasl News docs  nol tell the whole slory. Their  department has monitored the  drop in wild fish slocks for  years, but did not lake responsible steps to stop that decline.  The wild lish (and our forests) are only protected when  treated like a 'millionaire's bank  account', using the accrued interest bul not spending the principal. When a commodity becomes rare, the demand increases, templing illegalities.  For example - poaching and  bribery in high places (as  witness the destruction of rhinos  in Africa).  Naturally-spawning salmon  are unprotected to the extent  thai ihey continue to decline  rapidly. Instead, salmon enhancement should produce so  many surplus stocks that the  'non-enhanced' stocks increase.  It is not sufficient to increase  the lotal fish slocks by enhancement, if the naturally-spawning  fish still decrease.  The target should be to return  all the ocean's species lo their  original levels and balances,  whal was destroyed piece by  piece, can be rebuilt in ihe same  fashion if begun soon enough.

Beachcombers change  Beachcombers is seeking an  additional site lor filming in ihe  coming season and have approached the Town of Gibsons  to sec if they can rem the old  firehall in Lower Gibsons from  May lo September.  "They are looking for a  'warehouse' with an apartment  over," stated Clerk-  Administrator Lorraine Goddard in her reporl lo Gibsons  Council las! Tuesday.  "Did ihey mention any  funds?" asked Alderman Dixon.  "They obviously don'l expect  to get il for nothing," clarified  Goddard. Council decided to  authorize her to negotiate.  This expansion of film loca  tion may reflect the process of  change and revitalization lhal  began in the 1987 production  season. The name 'The Beachcombers' has been changed lo  simply 'Beachcombers' and will  no longer reflect Gibsons as an  isolated village and I he water  will be seen as a way of life, nol  just a source of work.  Executive Producer of  Beachcombers, Brian Mc-  Keown, staled, "Beachcombers  is a celebration of life in a particular place, one of the most  beautiful parts of the planet,  namely Howe Sound - Georgia  Strait and ils mountains,  islands, channels, beaches and  forests. To mosl of the people  in the world, Ihis area is spectacular and exotic."

Approximately two dozen residents turned up at the 6 pm  meeting prepared lo argue for an independent study of the  sewer costing as well as a revised method of polling residents  as lo iheir wishes.
