 VHSIKi  EDITORIAL / OPINION  C0  LEGISLATIVE LIBRARY  Parliament Buildings  LEI   vtct���n..B.C.V8VlX4  THE SUNSHINE  91.8  jdt**~*  THE SUNSHINE-  Coast  SPl  REMEMBER WHEN  CLASSIFIEDS  petyi 13  pagt 16  page 20  WHEN THE  LOCALS  EAT LOCAL  I Overlooking the Harbour  Gibsons, B.C.  886-2268  50c per copy on news stands  SERVING THE SUNSHINE COAST SINCE 1945  April 8,1991 Volume 45 Issue 14  SCRD  protests  effluent  dumping  by Cathrine Fuller  Pat Stephens, information  officer for BC Ferry Corpora-  lion, says lhat while most of the  ferry fleet has had sewage treatment plants installed, the Queen  of Cowichan, which services the  Sunshine Coasl, still releases  untreated sewage from her  holding tanks inlo Howe  Sound. She added that the  budget for this year includes  provision to perform the sewage  treatment conversion on the  Cowichan.  Area A Director  Gordon Wilson  The new treatment procedure, she told the Coast  News, involves three stages  culminating in ultra-violet treatment of the effluent. Most of  the cities dumping into the  sound only go to secondary  treatment, she pointed out.  If ihere has been a date set  for the work to begin on the  Queen of Cowichan, Stephens  was not prepared to be specific.  She also said there is no way of  calculating how much effluent  is being released inlo the sound,  as it would vary with passenger  loads.  The Sunshine Coast Regional  District (SCRD) Board is angry  about the situation.  "In light of the fact that  we've had repealed reporis of  high coliform counts in our  area, along the Gibsons waterfront and the Langdale area to  Howe Sound Pulp and Paper  (HSPP), we should request Ihe  BC Ferry Corporation respond  lo our concern lhat they are  dumping their holding tanks on  every second run," Director  Gordon Wilson proposed al Ihe  March 28 meeting.  "That's a significant loading  of sewage effluent in thai body  of water,' he added.  "That's a  significant  loading of  semgqefflueU.  in that body of  water," he  added.  The Bpard has taken a strong  stand against HSPP's dumping  into Howe Sound and is currently mounting a campaign to  prevent privale boal owners  from dumping iheir holding  lanks in the Sechelt Inlet and  other areas along the coast.  With that in mind, Wilson suggested the board write a letter lo  Frank Wells, of Ihe BC Ferry  Corporation, asking for details  about the volumes of sewage  being discharged, the frequency  of thai discharge and what  plans BC Ferries has to provide  on-shore disposal facility to  handle the effluent.  NEWS BRIEFS  Smell back,  but not for long  That old 'pulp mill smell' was back again last week, but  only for a couple of hours.  Reports of the odour came from several people in the Gibsons and Langdale area, and from as far away as Gambier  Island.  In a telephone interview with the Coast News, Ron Wilson  of Howe Sound Pulp and Paper said lhat Ihere was some  trouble with the NCG system that is used to control TRS  emissions. He explained thai TRS Is one of Ihe sulphur gases  "lhat used to let you know you were near a pulp mill."  "Our monitors picked It up in Langdale," he said. "Bul II  only lasted for aboul two hours."  Liberal meeting postponed  Gordon Wilson, Leader or Ihe Liberal Parly or British  Columbia, has announced that the meeting or Liberal leaden  from across Canada to discuss a common approach to constitutional matters which was scheduled for April 5 and 6 in  Sechell has been postponed.  While there was a firm commitment from all provinces to  participate in the meeting, uncertainty as to the federal  leader's attendance due to health concerns prompted the  deferral.  Wilson stated, "There is still a strong commitment from all  provinces to proceed wilh this initiative, however, there was  general agreement that a meeting of Ihis importance should  nol lake place without our federal leader. We are all delighted  thai Mr. Chretien is back to work, however, we abo appreciate that he will have to contend with within Ms own office over the next few weeks."  Wilson is proceeding with plans to reschedule the historical  meeting later this spring.  ���*?*����v-r - ���,-*"^Ti,<r- - ���--:, - ���-     :^s>?.'r-*��-*�����~ w-S- r ~  et^ft-i^^sSSl ���?*��m3s:  Effluent purification systems vary from one ship to Ihe next. The   Queen of Oak Bay, above, treats ils raw sewage whereas the  Queen of Cowichan has yet lo be upgraded. Joel Johnstone phoio  Local forests to  become showcase  by Rose Nicholson  The BC Forest Service has  plans to make a large section of  forest land on the Sunshine  Coast "one of Ihe most studied  forests in Canada."  Al the March 27 meeting of  the Forest Advisory Committee  (FAC), Dislricl Forester Barry  Mountain announced the reactivation of the Mount  Elphinstone Local Resource-  Use Plan (LRUP).  He told FAC members thai  an area within the boundaries ol  the LRUP will be given a new  classification ��� Natural  Resource Research Area, which  will be Ihe subject of intense  study by the scientific community and Ihe Forest Service,  with extensive input from the  public. "I would expect," he  said, "thai il will get international attention as the years go  on."  Mountain went on lo say thai  the sludy will cover a broad  spectrum of forest resources,  with water uses, wildlife, landscape values and public use  sharing Ihe spotlight with logging interests.  "We already know the scientific community is interested. I  see UBC, SFU, the technical  schools and the federal and provincial governments getting involved," he continued.  "I expect we'll see fish and  wildlife scientists there too. It's  a real opportunity lo gel into  water quality and quantity, and  analyze the creeks and see if  there's any impact on human  activity. There's no end of  things thai could be done, particularly if the public gels involved."  The Mount Elphinstone  LRUP was started in November  of 1987 and was near completion in 1988 when it was put on  hold during a period of cutbacks. Mountain said that the  reactivated plan will be  presented to the public for  review and input in May of this  year.  The area covered by the  Mount Elphinstone LRUP runs  from Wilson Creek lo Gibsons,  and is bordered by the  Tetrahedron LRUP on the  north and private land on the  south.  "It's a very valuable piece of  land," said Mountain. "The  total land base is 8351 hectares  with a volume of timber of over  three billion cubic metres. The  productive Crown forest land is  almost 6000 hectares, or 71.3  per cent of the total ��� a very  significant figure.  "It's a very rich area, but thai  doesn't say it's all going to be  logged. When it's netted out  there's about two million cubic  metres."  Mountain said that the Small  Business Enterprise Program  would be up "for a whole new  look" and a varieiy of logging  practices will be used in the area  ��� selective logging, ihinning,  wider leave strips along streams  and clearcuts.  "I have to tell you," he said,  "that clearcuts arc here to stay  in BC. We heard some very  good reasons front the scientists  (at the Forcsl Land Use  Seminar)."  "The type of plan you're  talking of lakes iremendous  time and resources," commented FAC member Fred Gazely.  "Are ihere resources committed  to that? There's all sorts of  work to do and Ihis is an ideal  spot to do ii, bul il needs a commitment of resources."  "A lol of resources will be  coming from the universities  and from our own staff,"  replied Mountain.  "In order for this to be successful, there has to be a com  mitment. When it's all put  togelher it will be like Ihe  Hillside plan. It's an ambitious  project and some of it may have  to be delayed pending certain  funds.  "Ii will generate considerable  revenue. It's capable of produce  ing a profit of from $10,000 lo  $40,000 a hectare to the government, after all expenses.  "One of the things I'd like to  do is sit down with the Regional  Dislricl and see if we're all happy with thai southern boundary, and see if there are additional lands lhal can be included  in ihe forest land base. We  know there are some Crown  lands there thai are outside of  ihe LRUP. Maybe there's a  good reason for it."  When asked by FAC mS AC  Tony Greenfield if t. t  Elphinstone LRUP would  follow a process similar to the  Telrehedron LRUP, Mountain  replied that it "should be a lot  more productive, because a lot  of work has been done already.  "I sec it as an ongoing thing.  At ihe public meeting in May  we'll find out how the public-  views it, ...The resource agencies arc answerable to the people, I want to emphasize thai."  The newly reactivated Mount  Elphinstone  Local Resource  Use Plan contains some of the  richest forest  land in BC. A recent announcement by District  Forester Barry  Mountain detailed extensive  plans for the  area.

Rose Nicholson photo  HSPP ready to produce  by Rose Nicholson  The first newsprint to be produced by the new equipment al  Howe Sound Pulp and Paper  came off the machines at 6:18  pm on April 3, shortly after the  target date of April 2.  In an interview with the  Coast News, Ron Wilson of  HSPP said that the first trial  rolls should be ready to be shipped lo Japan by the end of the  month.  Up until now, HSPP's main  production has been kraft pulp,  an "intermediate product" that  is shipped to paper mills around  the world. But the new equi-  pent, designed to manufacture a  very high quality of newsprint,  will make it possible for the  company to compete in the  lucrative Japanese market.  "There are only two other  machines in North America that  can even approach Japanese  quality," said Wilson. "They  have very high standards."  Wilson explained that the  new facilities use a ther-  momechanical pulping (TMP)  process which, along with a new  newsprint machine, produces a  product with high resistance to  tearing.  "In the North American  market, a performance of one  or two breaks per hundred rolls  of paper is acceptable," said  Wilson. "In Japan, because the  newspaper market is so competitive, we have to meet a standard of one break per thousand  rolls.  "There is something like five  major daily newspapers in  Tokyo. They want to be able to  start their printing at three  o'clock in the morning, not 10  minutes after, and continue the  complete run without any interruptions.  "The printability is another  factor. With the Japanese  characters you have to have a  very good print surface."  Wilson went on to say that  the connection with Oji does  not necessarily guarantee entry  into the Japanese market, but  "they have a very good  marketing arm and that gives us  an 'in'. But even Oji can't sell  paper if it doesn't meet the  publishers' standards."  by Stuart Burnside  Sechelt Council will not allow  the Devlin Funeral Home to expand operations into Wilson  Creek, according to a vote  taken at a Special Council  meeting held April 5.  Mayor Nancy MacLarty  voted against allowing the  rezoning of a one acre lot near  Tyson Road and Highway 101  from Residential to Public  Assembly, breaking a three/  three tie. Her vote will force  Dan Devlin, owner of Ihe 45  year old Gibsons business, to  try and find another "more  suitable" site for his expansion.  The decision not to allow the  proposed facility was due in a  large part to ihe public outcry  heard at an April 3 Public Hearing held to discuss the possible  rezoning. Owners of the proper-  lies neighbouring the site of the  new home were on hand in  force to object to the proposal  and voice their concerns about  it.  Al the hearing, Dan Devlin  did his best to address and  alleviate those concerns.  The prospect of on-site  cremations seemed to be a major source of contention for  some of the residents. Patricia  Spence of Tyson Road felt the  presence of a crematory smoke  stack would devalue her property, property she believes is  already devalued due to the  presence of an existing smoke  stack (a nearby mill which produces large amounts of smoke).  Devlin informed Spence the  type of cremation chamber used  in the home wouldn't have a  visible smoke stack. "It has an  after burner chamber where the  smoke and particular matter is  re-burned...the only thing visible coming from the lop of the  building might be heat waves."  Mayor Nancy MacLarty suggested that ��� because of the  social stigma that seemed to be  attached to the crematory and  its smoke stack ��� the burning  facilities be located in a separate  area, "perhaps, more appropriately, at a cemetery."  Sechelt Mayor Nancy MacLarty voted against funeral home  expansion.  Devlin was adamant. " With  ihe rate of cremations we have  in this place al this time, 1  wouldn't consider building a  funeral home without a  crematory," he said, "Frankly,  to further divide the operation,  between Gibsons, Sechelt and  then a cemetery, is just not  feasible for us."  MacLarty's reference to  "social stigma" may have hit  upon one of the largest underlying problems facing the proposed facility. "Social stigma seems  to be a big item here," said  Alderman Doug Reid. "Do you  have any data on how long it  takes such a stigma to disappear  once a new facility has been  built," he asked of Devlin.  Devlin responded that he was  not aware of any such information, but, in his opinion, "most  people, after a facility has been  in place and operational,  become comfortable with it."  He acknowledged, however,  thai there were those who,  "because of the very nature of  what it is, will continue to have  negative thoughts and be  unhappy about it."  Robert Gill of Sechell was  one of the few members of the  public in attendance who support the efforts of Devlin to expand his business. "What we  are dealing wilh here is a proven  entity," he said of Devlin.  "He's been a good corporate  citizen and has shown every indication he intends to alleviate  everyone's concerns or fears."  In response to Gill's remarks,  area property owner Ken Lay  spoke saying that he, while a  Vancouver resident, bought  property in the area because it  was zoned residential and  wasn't in danger of development.  "My wife and I want a sane  environment to raise our kids  in," he said, "and a quality of  life that simply can't be found  in Vancouver...1 absolutely  don't want the funeral home in  this area."  Former Sechelt alderman Ken  Short was critical of Lay's st-  titute. "People move up from  the city and want to close the  door behind them," he  asserted, "because they don't  want to be disturbed from that  point on. You're going lo build  a house and others will want lo  as well...and this kind of progress (increased population)  won't be easy to stop, it's going  to go on and on and on."  Short went further saying ihis  kind of continuing development  would have lo mean compromise from "everyone, lo ensure this community will survive  the way we'd like il to."  After the hearing, Devlin said  he would abide by "whatever  the Council decided", saying  "If the Council doesn't want  this development, then we'll live  by lhat, but quite frankly, I'm  surprised by the reaction...We  honestly felt our new facility  would enhance the  neighbourhood, not detract  from it."  Society receives funding  The Gambier Community Centre Society has received approval of an $85,000 GO BC award to help construct a community hall and landscape ihe surrounding area, Provincial  Secretary Howard Dirks and Mackenzie MLA Harold Long  .announced last week.  Dirks, minister responsible for GO BC, said the society  plans lo acl as the general contractor and much of the planning and groundwork has been done by island residents who  strongly support the project.  Long added, "The new community hall will include  meeting space, games room, kitchen and lounge area and be  set in a park-like area wilh recreational playing fields. The  project will do much to meet the leisure time needs of the  community and provide an excellent venue for local events."  BC Ferry changes  BC Ferry Corporation hopes to have two changes in ef reel  this summer to alleviate traffic flow to and from the Sunshine  Coast.  A new 85 car ferry under construction will replace the  Powell River Queen hopefully by late June, says Ferry  spokesperson Pat Stephens.  Also, Ihe Queen of New Westminster���currently split In  half like a hot dog bun in Ihe Vancouver shipyards���is being  re-rigged as a second carrier for the Tswassen-Nanaimo express. This, Stephens says, should relieve Horseshoe Bay of  some of its summer traffic congestion.  EDC appointments  At an in-camera session on March 27, the Sunshine Coast  Regional Dislricl officially appointed this year's members to  the Economic Development Commission.  Maurice Egan will remain chairman of the commission.  Other current members who will be staying on include: Kay  Bailey, Tim Clement, Bruce Fraser, Barrie Wilbee, Bill  Hughes, Kay Little and Art Girous.  New apointmenls to the commission are: Duncan Fraser,  Shirley Hall, Ann Barker and Scott Bleakley.  Goverments grapple with  boundary problems  by Calhrine Fuller  Sunshine Coast Regional  District (SCRD) Director Jim  Gurney is angered at the continued expansion of Gibsons  boundaries into Area E. At the  March 28 meeting of the board,  he spoke his mind regarding the  current expansion which will see  the site of the new Gibsons  Plaza, owned by Marcorp  Corp., bitten out of his area's  southern border.  His speech to fellow directors  included suggestions that Ihe  method of boundary expansion  may have to be challenged in  court. At a comment by one  board member thai perhaps  Area E should incorporate,  Gurney retorted, "That hasn't  been ruled out either."  Gurney's outburst was the  first indication of animosity in  the current expansion issue.  Reports made at Gibsons Council by Mayor Eric Small have indicated an easy cooperation between the two governments, but  Gurney explained later, "We're  all being very civilized."  The issue, he said, was nol  with Ihe current Gibsons Council which, he acknowledged, appears lo be trying to establish a  good working relationship wilh  the SCRD.  "The main flaw is in ihe process as il exists," he told the  Coast News. "That's the  Ministry of Municipal Affairs,  not the Town of Gibsons.  Area E Director  Jim Gurney  "But it's different now than  it has been in the past. We have  a community plan, and when  you have a community plan you  have set boundaries. It's no  longer an unorganized area. It's  defined. So it seems to me there  should be a different process in  taking pieces away from it."  The situation with the Marcorp property arose after the  company had been negotiating  development permits with the  SCRD for several months.  While the district could supply  adequate water to the proposed  development, the only sewage  lines close to the property come  from the Town of Gibsons.  That problem, said Gurney,  could have been overcome by  scaling down the proposed  development and providing on-  site sewage disposal facilities.  Marcorp, however, decided  they'd rather apply to come into  the Town of Gibsons and asked  that council make the necessary  application for boundary expansion to Municipal Affairs.  At the SCRD meeting,  Gurney pointed out that the  town continues to eat away at  any industrial tax base the rural  district brings in. But later he  clarified his position.  "Really what this is all about,  is not so much what's ours and  what's theirs, or where the  boundaries are, it's growing  pains in the community. People  will say we don't want to be in  Ihe town because we don't want  to pay higher taxes, and that  may be true. Bul the real reason  FROM THE HIP  J.M. Sherman  Commands from authority  figures I'd just as soon not  question, occasionally force me  to act in ways I'd positively  prefer to avoid.  But I bite the bullet and  chicken my way through, usually discovering all over again  how Fear can be a blessing in  disguise, an unlikely ally urging  me to play along���Fear and all.  This morning Denise ordered  me to turn on a below-decks  water valve, please. While not  refusing outright, I indulged in  a bit of the old stall 'em and  hope they forget routine.  Because, to do Denny's bidding  would involve going another  round with a perennial  heavyweight from my overworked stable of thoroughbred  personal demons.  Let me put it this way, were I  a lizard crawling around  underneath a house would, I  imagine, be a constant source of  adventure. But, being human  not reptilian, I generally experience excursions so claustro-  phobically proximate to terra  firma as dread-evoking.  Regardless how irrational my  fear might appear to some, it is  real. And I feel compelled to  acknowledge it rather than try  to obscure or banish it with a  smokescreen of ultimately  bogus bravado.  Doing what you're afraid to  do���playing along with Fear-  is precisely what is called for in  such situations. So dropping  tentatively into the crawlspace,  Subterranean  basement tapes.  Vol.1  a plastic lantern claw-like in my  right hand, I begin to pretend  that absolutely nothing bad or  evil can possibly happen. Not  fooled in the least, my Fear  simply intensifies, although not  enough to paralyze me or send  me lurching back up towards  'daylight.  (I tell myself) I won't suddenly be caught in the vise grip of  the mother-in-law of all cardiac  arrests. I won't come face to  face with a cross between a  Yamoda Dragon and a  diamondback rattler with  sevenheads. The house won't  dropsqueeze six silly inches  downward���without warning.  I start to talk to myself as I  creepy-crawl across undulating  dunes of hard-packed sand, my  claw directing drunken beams  of light up ahead. The kid in me  (who ain't afraid of squat)  snickers that we're really going  through a minefield which is  part of a hot new ride at  Disneyworld called 'Iraqi Desert  Rat Tunnel'.  I prefer to choose my own  ride, the kid's imagination being  a tad too intense at times. While  my knees buckle and I pitch forward for a refreshing faceful of  sand, I'm suddenly transformed  imo...Lizardman! My pebbled  tongue flicks spastically, my  hips get into the spirit, and I go  salamander left, salamander  right cruising effortlessly  towards the water valve.  All this time the kid is encouraging me to witness my  Fear for what it is; a curb on my  courage, a way to avoid life, a  way to cop out in advance on  just about anything I'd rather  not risk. But, happily, when the  kid in me smells a cop-out he  kicks serious tailbone. And I  always try to do the kid proud,  regardless.  With the valve operational,  and Lizardman approaching the  end of the game, I puckishly flip  off the lantern and do the last  is, being in the town is being in  an urban area. It's a mind, set."  Resolution of the friction  may come about through a new  committee Gibsons and the  SCRD have established lo draw  up guidelines for boundary extensions. The move came about  through a series of joint  meetings resulting from the  Marcorp application.  "In my mind it's a move  towards one of my objectives,"  said Gibsons Mayor Eric Small.  "That is to see the town and Ihe  regional district working  together for the overall good of  ihe area."  Gurney also believes Ihe committee will ease tensions and,  hopefully, address the longterm  problems of a Vancouver  population expanding to the  Coast.  "We have to really decide  what kind of community we  want to have here. We have to  do that jointly," he maintains.  "We want to coordinate otlr  community plans. That's really  important, and it really hasn't  happened in the past. But thatfs  how to get control of the situar  lion. It's important to get control of it. These guys will over  run us, whether they come now  or 10 years from now."  20 feet of my subterranean  playground in my sleep. I  emerge triumphant, exultant,  once again convinced that Fear,  improperly interacted with, js  the single greatest inhibitor of  growth and change. Yet most  people sign up with Fear for  life���and on Fear's terms not  their own. What a waste.  As I brush myself off and  wonder if champagne would be  a bit much, that what I'd done  was no big deal, a thought occurs to me. How would most  people of any age beyond, say  12, react to spending 15 minutes  in the crawlspace of a house  with only a cheap lantern and a  headful of fantasies all featuring themselves as about to be  dead?  Oh yeah, almost forgot.  You're home alone and the  nearest neighbours ate hearing-  impaired and gone for the  weekend.  Still eager to play along with  Fear? Coast News, April 8,1991  3.  A Vancouver love story  Not all love stories as we  know are happy. Many of our  very grisliest operas for example, Tristan, di Lammamore,  Tosca...lt can take a pretty  refined taste to winkle out the  true happiness in these tales.  Recently a Gibsonitc of advancing years, call him mature,  call him Albert, went lo Vancouver for a 10 day stay or sojourn. He had not been there at  all as it happened for the last  two years.  A friend, a student of the Far  East, was going to be away in  Bangkok and offered Albert his  apartment for the lime. The  apartment was on the twenty-  fourth floor in the West End  and Albert looked out over  Stanley Park in one direction  and English Bay from the other.  He spent a fair amount of  time initially just doing this, and  jotting down a few observations  in his notebook, such as thai  this year three out of seven umbrellas were red. A surprising  fact he was able to garner due to  the fact that it was raining  almost the entire time.  He made observations of the  different styles people had for  taking their dogs for walks. The  style appeared to suit the dog  rather than the owner, but then  of course the owner had  presumably chosen the dog, so  whal were you to make of this?  There was one shaggy fellow  who raced his dog, a Sealyham,  every time along the street  around a corner and into the  park. Sometimes the dog was  ahead and sometimes he. But  otherwise  things  down  there  IN A NUTSHELL  S. Nutter  looked pretty sedate.  Then there was a figure coming along the street, no umbrella, hands in trenchcoat  pockets, a silk scarf, the  auburn-haired head bowed,  tripping individually along. An  unmistakeable figure from the  almost distant past. 'Myrtle!' he  called down, but the crows and  gulls in mid-air, and the unceasing rush and roar of the  buildings and cars etc., made  his call ridiculous. She didn't  hear him, and while he waved  he knew she wasn't going to  look up.  He threw on sweater and  shoes, went lo the door, whipped back for his keys, and got  into the elevator. The elevator  stopped part way, and a bearded chap of gimlei eye got part  way in, stopped, or started back  in fact, his hand still on the  elevator doors, and said "I'm  not getting into an elevator  where someone is smoking!"  Albert was in fact still smoking. He had nol in fact been giv  ing it any thought. "Sorry," he  said, "is there an ashtray out  there?"  "We do not have ashtrays in  this building," said gimlet eyes.  "Well," said Albert, "I am not  going to grind this cigarette into  the carpet of this elevator. Why  don't you catch the next one?"  There was a pause. Albert  and gimlet eyes were about  even-steven given weight and  reach. "There is a $2000 fine in  British Columbia," the man  said, "for doing what you are  doing."  "So," said Albert, "why  don't you get out a blow a whistle."  But time of course was of the  essence. Myrtle, in his mind's  eye and knowing well her gait,  could be al Denman Street by  now, turning either this way or  thai and lost again forever. She  had been lost a couple of times  before.  So he stubbed the cigarette  out on a looney, said "shut the  damned door," and they  descended IS floors in the  chilliest possible way.  So far, friends, this is a  reasonable operatic libretto.  You can almost hear the tenor  from the twenty-fourth floor.  The soprano comes in as he  remembers her and so on. The  baritone in the elevator comes  on and the tragedy could be  complete.  Actually, as il happened,  Albert turned right on Denman,  saw a place called Tru-Kolur  Hair Studio, went in and there  was Myrtle, and they lived happily ever after.

The whole family joined  IX-rek on his walk for part of  every day, and the van served as  a backup and a place lo rest.  This small caravan was not  funded by any wealthy philan  thropic organization, but relied  on meals and lodging donated  by sympathetic individuals  along the way. They were passed from family to family all  across the country as people  became inspired by iheir example.  Derek began his peace walks  in 1986 when he joined 500  other people on a trek from Los  Angeles to Washington. Later  he took part in other peace  walks in the US, and in  England, Europe and Japan.  He decries the tendency to expect politicians and world  leaders to do something about  the arms race and believes thai  nothing will be done until the  majority of people speak up and  demand action. He says thai in  his walks he is beginning to feel  a growing groundswell of support as people everywhere begin  lo realize the power of concerted action.  Derek has come to the Sunshine Coasl to visit Teoni and  Keith who have jusl moved lo  Roberls Creek and now have a  third daughter.  He will be presenting a slide  show and talk at the Roberts  Creek Community Hall tonight  Monday, April 8 at 7 pm.

Coast News, April 8,1991  EDITORIAL ���OPINION  Editorial Board: Jim Davidson, Publisher,  Cathrine Fuller, Editor;  Jan Michael Sherman, Editor  Hyak avenged?  Apparently the Vancouver Aquarium is still considering  Ihe Parks Board's recommendation of an indefinite  moratorium on the capture of orcas from the wild, an action which has been urged on them from various quarters  following the ignominious dealh of Hyak.  The primary rationale given in defense of the taking,  studying, and exhibiting of killer whales is that an opportunity is afforded our species lo "become acquainted"  with Hyak's people. Our ignorance and fear of ihcse  almost mythological mammals, mitigated by observing  them in captivity, promotes better understanding of them  and results in more enlightened practises when il comes to  the way we treal them.  Fair enough. But there conies a time when inter-species  "ambassadors" (as Hyak's keepers made him out to be)  stand revealed as the hostages they in fact are, and lhat  time has come. The public in large measure appears to  have made Ihe connection, bul Ihose wilh a \esled stake  (whether financial or "scientific") in the status quo are  dragging their feel.  We can only hope lhal the Vancouver Aquarium will  agree lo the self-imposed moratorium, thai no more  Hyaks will be rudely snatched from iheir natural habitat.  Perhaps, too, other exhibitors of wildlife, be il of the sea  or jungle, will come lo realize lhal zoos of any kind arc a  relic of a time when man was less evolved than lie is now.  Cost of sacred cows  One musl approach sacred cows with camion as well as  respecl. Impetuous foreigners who have the audacity to  suggest slaying such a beast to feed the starving masses,  should be prepared to beat a hasty retreat, at best, Nevertheless, ihere comes a lime to weigh the worth of each  sacred cow, and someone has to mention it.  Such is the case in Gibsons, at the moment. The library,  ihe municipal offices and council chambers, and the health  unit are all located in Holland Park, dead centre of Lower  Gibsons. Each of these facilities has become inadequate  for the growing needs of the community, and expansions  are being discussed.  Holland Park, itself is pleasant but impractical for most  park activities due to its slope.  Perhaps it is lime for the town to consider sacrificing  ihis prime piece of real estate to the growing need for commercial space in Lower Gibsons, and the hungry municipal  coffers.  The location and condilion of the properly should bring  lop dollar. The town could choose carefully lo whom and  for whal purpose the property was sold, and build the expanded public facilities on a much cheaper piece of property in upper Gibsons.  Ai the very least, it is lime lo consider the luiure of this  particular sacred cow.  Kudos to HSPP  . The first newsprint rolled off the presses at Howe Sound  Pulp and Paper's new facility in Port Mellon at 6:18 pm  on Wednesday, April 3, 1991.  This is within one day of the targclted completion date  and given the complexity and scope of the undertaking is  something of an organizational marvel.  In addition, first reports are that the paper being produced is of the very best quality.  The Coast News would like to recognize the achievement that was so efficiently won and would congratulate  the management and staff of what is now the newest and  oldest operating pulp and paper mill in the province.  Some splendid work has been done and the men and  women at Port Mellon have served themselves, the Sunshine Coast, the province, and the country very well indeed.  Ah, spring. There is an  almost overpowering temptation to lake refuge in the  season. I mean, escapism  beckons, the season seduces.  it's Canadian spring and  ihere are the late morning preseason baseball games; the  Stanley Cup playoffs have  begun and die-hard Vancouver  Canuck fans���can there be a  more loyally admirable breed  among the sports watching  fraternity���are lured to the  tube. It's been almost a decade  since the last Canuck miracle or  near miracle on ice. Could this  be the year?  Nor, of course, is it only  jock-time. Through a phalanx  of Wesl Coasl April rain clouds  charging from the Pacific across  ihe landscape there is a world of  bees and buds out there, luring  us out or, if not out, into a contemplation of the restatement of  the earnest and sacred hope implicit in the coming back of life.  For me this spring, since I'm  much better in one-on��ne relationships with plants, as with  the world at large, there is an  overshaded lilac and a rose  fallen from a house of good  repute to my care which call me  out for daily inspection. There  has been a limbing of trees  which opens up an hour or two  of extra sunshine and the lilac  and ihe gallant rose have a  reason to engender hopefulness  in themselves and in me.  Also, and after this spring  harbinger, let us wrestle the  escapism of this writer for the  editorial page into stillness for  the moment, ihere is the rumour  Of spring  and politics  MUSINGS  John Burnside  of a third grandchild.  The world of sports, Ihe  world of buds and growth, the  rumour of birth���lhat is  enough for spring is it not? But  the writer for the editorial page  must lurn to the world of man  and his doings to justify his  presence. So do I now.  You've got to start with the  premiership of our province.  The Hughes Report is received  and is damning in the extreme.  Lying under oath, using the office of premier to advance his  own business interests, middle  of the night reception of stacks  of hundred dollar bills from an  offshore investor who is also the  purchaser of the premier's per  sonal property. Can this be  real?  Commissioner Ted Hughes  notes that the former premier  does not "���em to understand  conflict ol interest; Hughes  notes that Mr. Vander Zalm  seems to feel that if the public  doesn't know what's going on  then there is no conflict of interest. Fascinating, as Mr.  Spock used to say on Star Trek.  That certainly goes a long way  to explain why the premier lay  all his troubles al the feet of a  media callous enough to inform  the public.  Nor, I am sad to say, does the  change of leadership bring confidence. At her first press conference BC's new premier said  she was disappointed in the  Hughes report. (Shoot Ihe  messenger!) Next day, she  allowed disappointment with  Bill Vander Zalm for not being  entirely forthright. Lying under  oath certainly qualifies for a  lack of forthrightness, does it  not.  But the gap between the new  premier's first utterance and her  second bespeaks the alert  damage control advice of a  public relations advisor. Does  this not suggest lhat the new  premier's sense of ethics and  honour is as shakily based as  her predecessor.  The most persuasive voice of  this spring on this subject is that  of Graham Leslie, former deputy minister of labour under both  Bennett and Vander Zalm. His  book Breach of Promise takes  issue with all of the ethical  lapses of this provincial government going back to the. issue  which led to his resignation in  1987 on a matter of principle.  This solid citizen tells us that  Bill 19, which reconstructed  labour relations in the province  and for which he assures us we  will still pay a high price, was  brought in by Ihe premier  without reference to the deputy  minister of labour, the minister  of labour, the cabinet or the  caucus.  Vander Zalm has been a  loose and uncontrolled cannon  since the inception of his time in  office and his cabinet, those  who are left and including Mrs.  Johnston, have put up with his  whimsical and autocratic shan-  anigans from the beginning.  Nor is the leadership of the  Socreds alone in its seemingly  amoral and a-ethical stance. It  is Ihe slory of our political immaturity.  We are hollow at the core.  We are hypocrites. We do not  understand ethics or honour.  Bill Vander Zalm is not better  nor worse than his party or his  province, he is just more colourful and under scrutiny.  We are in political kindergarten in BC. Only our greed  and our hypocrisy are world  class.  LETTERS  Tribute to  concert organizers  Editor:  It is with great pleasure lhat I  ; write to you to tell you how  ; much we enjoyed the Sooke  j Ensemble concert at Gibsons on  '��� Sunday afternoon, March 25.  . Apparently this was the last in a  I series of concerts held over the  j winter months.  ; The Sooke Ensemble com-  ; prises Bruce Vogl (piano), l.an-  j ny Pollet (flute) and Susan  j Young (soprano), all from the  I University of Victoria. They  ! played with such vibrancy and  [colour that, together with their  {obvious professionalism, it  ; created a memorable event. It's  ' the kind of concert for which  ! one would travel to Vancouver  'or Seattle and we have it right  (here!  i The choice of Schubert, Lizt,  Debussey and Bach, among  others, allowed the players to  ���demonstrate a range of talent  >and left us with the feeling of a  ! musical mosiac. It was wonder-  Iful and I do hope the dedicated  I people responsible for the con-  Jeer! series will be back next fall!  r Hats off to the people who  !put the concerts together.  Chris Richmond  Look again at  teen world  Edilor:  A response to "Welcome lo  Real World" by Peter Hunt  who wrote in response to "CBC  series slammed" by Mrs. Monly  Shinn.  Though I am well aware of  druy and alcohol abuse, sexual  promiscuity and, 1 might add,  involvement in the occult in our  world, regardless of whether  you're an adult or teenager, I do  object to any media message  thai portrays thai all teenagers  have this lifestyle and thai il is  normal.  You invite Monly Shinn lo  lake a closer look at the "teen  world" as you sec it, Peler. As a  mother of three teenagers and a  20 year old, I have had, and  continue to have, a close look at  our youth, through both my  own children and the sometimes  seemingly endless streams of  teenagers that pass through our  home (and fridge!).  I cannot say enough in their  defense! These kids are intelligent, honest, sometimes  hilarious individuals who are  not involved in the lifestyle portrayed by Northwood. They  have unlimited potential and  under their light-hearted banter,  they care deeply about making  our world a belter place to live  in.  Though they, too, often see  parental teaching as restrictive,  they have the discernment to  know thai restrictions on  destructive behaviour are just  plain common sense.  Yes, Peler, much of life is  "grim", but there is another  world than the one portrayed on  Northwood. These same kids  thai pass through my kitchen  are undoubtedly friends and  classmates of yours at  Chatelech. In all caring and  kindness, I invite you to lake a  closer look al iheir world.  Lorraine Pearl  Wilson Creek  Green space  groundswell  on Sunshine Coast  Editor:  I refer to your article relating  to the Sechelt Peninsula upland  park proposal in the February  25 issue on page 24.  First, the Pender Harbour  Wildlife Society also presented a  proposal to the Parks 90  meeting on February 14 calling  for park status on the same  general upland areas of the  peninsula proper, for hiking,  skiing and other recreational  purposes. In addition, the  Society wants the old growth  preserved as a viable ecosystem  because it is at the headwaters  of an important watershed for  the Pender Harbour area. The  streams, they say, are natural  spawning grounds for salmon  or where fish hatcheries have  been built, must be protected.  Second, the area suggested  for park use is about 15 per cent  of the area of the peninsula.  Most of this is a watershed with  very steep slopes marked  ecologically sensitive on Forests  Ministry cover maps, as well as  old clearcuts which have not  regenerated because too much  soil loss has occurred or because  growing conditions are too  harsh.  There appears to be a  groundswell of interest in having our own "backyard"  upland park in the same way as  Vancouver has its Cypress,  Grouse and Seymour Parks.  Persons who support the proposals should write or phone the  Pender Harbour Wildlife Society, the SCRD, the Ministry of  Forests or the Ministry of  Parks.  Paul H.

Bill  Banting  I  Your community's  /AWARD-vV/NNINC  newspaper  V��^^*&><g>  mmi  WtHyMMeU Coast News, April 8,1991  LETTERS  Commingling  already  here  Editor:  Last week's second editorial  "A Time of Promise and  Renewal" intrigued me. In it,  you hoped that "someday a  more ecumenical commingling  of both (ie Jewish and Christian  traditions) might arise, allowing  a greater sense of shared origins  and values to infuse both  venerable religions".  Let me tell you something  about Si. Hilda's Anglican  Church in Sechelt, where the  week before Easter (Holy  Week) was marked by such a  co-mingling, where each Sunday (in our worship) we are  vocally reminded of our rich  Jewish heritage and where each  year we have an inter-  generational Advent Event four  weeks before Christmas which  includes making ornaments  (which represent those who  foretold of the coming of Jesus)  for the Jesse Tree.  As intergenerational Christian education is something our  parish emphasizes ��� all ages  learning and relearning together  the rich heritage and traditions  of our Christian faith ��� we added something different to our  Maundy Thursday celebration  ��� a Seder Meal which recalls  the Jewish escape from Egyptian captivity into the desert and  eventual reaching of a new land.  Powerful night? Very! Learning together with people of all  ages was not only fun, but was a  very profound reminder that  each of us is part of God's family. Too, we find thai such  parish intergenerational events  "make real" the sense of  church family and broadens our  understanding of "family".  When we (aboul 70 people of  all ages) gathered the next day  in St. Hilda's sanctuary, there  was Ihe stark reality of our  Lord's crucifixion: marked by  the solemn procession and our  participation in the Stations of  the Cross; by the sombre  reminder of Jesus' sacrifice  represented by the huge wooden  cross leaning against the bare  altar with a wreath of stilleto-  sharp thorns in the shape of a  crown draped at the top; and by  our laying nails which had been  held in the palm of our hands  during the service, at the foot of  thai cross.  It's a message our parish  wants lo share with others.  Please consider this an invitation for you, for your readers,  to "consider yourself at home"  in either of the two churches of  our parish: St. Hilda's in  Sechelt or St. Andrew's in  Pender Harbour.  We are a parish which loves  to worship God. We acknowledge our Jewish heritage,  delight in learning about our  Christian tradition, are humbled by the answers to prayer and  celebrate (often and in various  ways!) the risen Lord in our  midst! We'd love to have you  join us!  June Maffing  Response to  Forestry  announcements  Editor's Note: A copy of the  following was received for  publication.  Barry Mountain  District Manager  Sunshine Coast Forest District  Dear Mr. Mountain:  As you recall, senior levels of  the Ministry of Forests, in July  of 1990, initiated the  Tetrahedron LRUP process and  announced a deferral of industrial activity pending completion of this and other studies.  Subsequently your office  delayed the start of the LRUP  process for four months.  During the following four  months the 30 members of the  planning team saw three different chairpersons, none of  whom have credentials as  facilitators or experience with  other LRUPs.  More recently your pronouncements regarding the industrial activity deferral, which  contradicted the official  statements of the Premier and  the Minister of Forests, brought  delay confusion and rancor to  the LRUP forum.  We have since learned thai on  March 27, you appeared al an  unrelated forum (the Forest Advisory Committee) and announced that the industrial activity deferral was contingent on  "meaningful progress". You  also stated completion and interim report dales for the LRUP  sludy.  We wish lo point out that impediments to "meaningful progress" have come more from  your office than from the  divergent opinions of planning  team members.  Please also note that under  the Ministry's guidelines for  LRUP studies, target dates (if  any) for completed or interim  reports are to be decided by Ihe  planning team, not the District  Manager. As well the role of the  Ministry of Forests is to chair  the meetings in a value-neutral  capacity.  We are now progressing  rapidly towards ratification of  the Terms of Reference, and we  hope that the District Manager  will refrain from any further interference with or obstruction  of the planning process. Thank  you very much.  Dan Bouman  Tetrahedron Alliance  To dialogue  or not to  dialogue?  Editor:  In his Alice's Restaurant  scenario Samuel Moses makes  an interesting point, which I'm  sure a municipality or two may  act upon, that being the dumping of garbage on clearcut  areas.  I'm certain that only in jest  does he actually advocate an  Orwellian society of reporting  this illegal activity, especially if  the individual is in the throes of  it. Perhaps a well-meaning approach of educational dialogue  would suffice.  And speaking of dialogue,  Canfor's public information  forum, (Coast News March 25)  and the lack of public participation has been made much of  lately. It's no wonder the public  displays such apathy with the  forest industry in general, with  such debacles as BCFP's Shoal  Island, Robson Bight, Ihe South  Moresby chain or local issues  such as Chapman Creek.  Reading the Ombudsman's  Shoal Island report leaves little  doubt in my mind, of the power  of corporate lobbying for cutting rights and the government's  inability to deal effectively or  retroactively with embezzled  stumpage fees, for which the  benefactors should have been  the taxpayers of BC.  I resent any forest official  from any forest corporation,  who cites public apathy in this  context. These same proponents  of Canfor's information or  public relations forum, afterall,  have been bought and paid for  by virtue of their association.  And I fear, Ihe five to 60 plus  million dollars in stumpage  revenue, was used by BCFP  counsel to, in effect, threaten  legal action against a number of  parties. The money was rightfully and ironically, taxpayer  monies.  Robert Gerow  Who is  the Zalm  anyway?  Reverend  Thain  and his  Model 'A'  by Dick Kennett  Once upon a lime there was a  wedding as the son of an early  Roberts Creek settler married  the scout master's daughter in  the newly consecrated St.  Aidan's Anglican Church.  Reverend Thain performed  the marriage rites as John  Reeves and Judy White pledged  their vows in 1936.  The reverend, with ihe addition of a new church, now had  lo run back and forth serving  St. Banholomew's and St.  Aidan's in his Model 'A' Ford  which once took him through  the bridge and down into the  ravine of Chaster Creek without  a scratch.  In the old ramshackle rectory  next to St. Bartholomew's,  Reverend Thain tutored some  of us young ones for choir  duties with his small portable  organ he and his wife had in the  living room.  Once a week in the parish  hall, Mr. White, the cub and  scout master, with his daughters  Judy and Vivian assisting, held  cub and scout meetings.  At the consecration of Si.  Aidan's our St. Bartholomew's  choir was in attendance.  1 think, today, of Gray's  Eulegy writien in a country  church yard for the words ring  forth, "The curfew lolls the  knell of parting day, the lowing  herd winds slowly o'er the lea."  Such is now the fate of St.  Aidan's."Sad", say the spiriis  of Ihe Cloughs, the Matthews,  the Reeves and all who look  pari in building this linle country place of worship on a  donated sizeable strip of land  on the Hall Road of Roberls  Creek.

Howe Sound a blueprint watershed  by George Cooper, 886-8520  "I'm a consultant in outdoor  and environmental education,"  Tim Turner said in reply to my  query. We were standing beside  his map of the Howe Sound  drainage region. His map is  large, needing four sheets of  plywood for backing; big  enough for youngsters lo walk  about on to help them gel to  know a little of this region of  deep waters and majestic mountains.  A map adults can learn from,  too, along with Tim's well-  researched commentary. It's  nol hard lo develop an appreciation of how people can inhabit a region yet nol harm it,  and learn to sustain what the  region provides, not leaving the  coming generations wilh  nothing more than a near  desert.  "Our manner of living, our  style of life," says Tim, "is now  a problem to our  environment." He adds, "Our  way of making our living, even  our very diet, is laying waste our  environment world-wide. The  struggle we will undergo, to ease  up on our demands on the environment, will be an exhausting one for us."  What brought him, we asked,  to this project of informing  adults and students about the  resources of the region of Howe  Sound, about the geologic  hazards, and about how this  land mass can be managed efficiently and responsibly.

Thanks also lo Cathy Silvey  and her helpers for all the work"?  that went into making a very I  successful 3rd Annttal Easier  Egg Hunt/Pig Roast. As usual,  the table was burdened with ex-  crutialingly delicious food. I  don't know about anyone else  but I sure ate a lot. What a  feast! By the way, nice job done  on the path into Wally's. I  know the warning signs were  put up for safety but it sure is  funny to see them there, now  that the trail looks so good!  You know, writing this column is somewhat akin to  weather forecasting; they both  involve some guess work and a  margin for error. Occasionally I  report on events that haven't actually transpired due to printing  deadlines or I rely on information passed on in good faith by  others and, voila, the odd  mistake is born. Sorry for any  past and future slip ups but, I  guess, to err is human and you  know the rest.  A GOOD ONE  Ron Fearn deserves  honourable mention for his  April Fool's prank of telling  people to turn their clocks  ahead one week early. 1 understand a few people fell for it and  experienced a small lime warp  for the rest of the weekend.  Good one, Ron. I bet you were  really popular for that.  PATS AND THUMPS  A pat on the back lo the  Highways crew for putting all  the road signs back up. A big  thump on the head to the  bonchcads who knocked them  down. Too bad they couldn't  put all that energy into  something constructive.  CLINIC DAY  There's a Clinic Day in Egmont at the school on Wednesday, April 10 in the afternoon.  While you're there, you can  make use of the library and  check out the Thrift Store  upstairs in the Hall.  I see by all the bobbing  orange floats that we are into  commercial prawn season.  Happy Fishing to all the boats  out there. I sure don't envy you  when I see you out there working on the most miserable, wet  days.

Having previously owned  and operated a herb store and  massage practice, I'm no  stranger to herbal supplements,  health food, natural body products, and massage aids. So,  having had my fill of Disneyland, Universal Studios, and  miniature golf, 1 eagerly approached ihe Expo where over  2400 companies were presenting  their products under the banner  'Natural'. (Where else but  California?)  Big name companies like  Celestial Seasonings, Quaker  Oats, IXilc, Perrier, Dr. Bron-  ner, Arrowhead Mills, Nancy's  and Wcstbrae were in evidence  next to small businesses with  names like Kiss My Face, Lick  Your Chops, Mother's Little  Miracle, and After the Fall,  hoping to be discovered.  Dieters were not left out with  numerous booths competing for  the additive-conscious calorie  counters. Nearby and next to  the diet booths were the muscle  builders' booths circled by  various Hulk Hogan types.  The kids and I sat in chairs  having our backs and feet rubbed by a portable mechanical  massager. After the three of us  lingered for aboul an hour, 1  decided 1 had to buy one. I  dragged a friend over and convinced him too. It was one of  the more popular booths.  Most of Ihe non-food items  were selling at wholesale prices,  but the last day near closing  time you could have stocked  your refrigerator and pantry  wilh free Corr's sodas, Little  Bear Organic Chips, Kettle  Chips, Rice Dream milk  substitute, bottles of Perrier,  Cook's Classic dressings, Santa  Barbara olives, and many did,  leaving laden with multiple  shopping bags full of goodies.  The kids loved gathering free  things and definitely got  ���satiated with yogurt sundaes'  and mechanical back rubs. And  my husband wants me to come  again next year.  LIBRARY NOTES  One of the fantastic freebies  at the Expo was the book 50  Simple Things YOU Can Do To  Save the Earth by the Earth  Works Group. Here is some of  its great advice.  1, Snip plastic six-pack  holders before throwing them  away so that marine animals  won't get trapped in them.  2. Cars thai get better gas  mileage emit less C02 per mile.  3. Use rechargeable batteries  as they last longer and don't  contain mercury as do alkaline  batteries.  4. Eliminate styrofoam use as  it is completely non-biodegrade-  able. It clogs the digestive  systems of animals, and sea  turtles that ingest too much axe  unable to dive because of its  buoyancy.  The book is soon to be  available at the library.  LEGION NEWS  The Ladies' Auxiliary monthly meeting is today, Monday,  April 8 at 8 pm at the Roberts  Creek Legion. New members  may contact Diana Gaudaur,  885-3159, for more information.  Friday and Saturday nights,  April 12 and 13, at 8:30 pm the  Legion  will  have the group  Beaver playing.

SARGEANT BAY SOCIETY  The Annual General Meeting  was held on March 30 and was  the fourteenth annual meeting  for ihis well established  organization.  Reporis of the year's activities were presented by the  chair people of committees, and  the election of officers took  place with the following directors being elected by acclamation: Tony Greenfield, Eric  Hoare, Bryan Carson, Kory  Conwright, and Joop Burgerjon.  The construction drawings  for the Wetland Rehabilitation  Project were on display and  ihere is a good chance that  grants required to cover the cost  of the project will be approved.  The Sargeant Bay clean-up is  scheduled for April 19 and  Halfmoon Bay Elementary  School has offered lo make this  their Earth Day event in which  aboul 100 students and teachers  will participate.

A HAPPY DAY  The sun shone on Connor  Park on Easter Sunday for a  gala day for kids in the area.  There were well over 100 little���and big���ones searching  for the hidden Easter eggs and  no one was disappointed.  Pastimes Toy Store was good  enough to provide lots of  helium balloons. But it was the  Halfmoon Bay Recreation  Association which sponsored  and organized Ihe whole happy  event to whom thanks are due.  Our local young nature watcher, Jenny Brooke of  Redrooffs reported sighting two  killer whales cavorting towards  Welcome  Pass  last   week.  I wonder if anyone knows  aboul crows with some white  feathers? There is one around  our area. Never having seen one  before I was intrigued.

Alice Albrecht, playing the  leading role of the mother Bea,  does an outstanding job. She  flawlessly expresses the inner  anger, frustration and manipulative love of a wife and  mother determined to mold the  lives of her family.  Terry Weatherill ably plays  the part of the husband Fred,  who struggles to maintain his  identity as head of the family in  the face of his wife's powerful  yet subtle manipulation.  High school students Chad  Bourgo, Allistair Basse and  Cindy Harvey play the sons and  a girl friend. They are all well  on their way in their chosen  careers. Basse, in particular,  displays a sure touch and an  easy confidence.  The set design and sound ef-  fecis   contribute   powerful  subliminal impressions. The  shabby, lower middle class  Chicago home of the late forties, complete with old radio  shows and big band music, provides a background credibility  that ties the whole performance  together.  The play, presented by 'No  Name Theatre' and the Gibsons  Landing Theatre Society, is  directed by Jay Pomfrel and  produced by Fran Burnside.  Pomfret, who is well known  lo local audiences as an actor,  and especially for his fine performance of the lead role in last  year's The Diviners, also shows  considerable skill as a director.  Precious Sons is a demanding  play, and it is well done.  Further performances, at the  Community Hall in Roberts  Creek, will be this week, April  10 to 13, at 8 pm.  Artist committed to Blues  bv Cathrine Fuller  There's still a huge market  for folk and blues music, says  Ken Hamtn. Il hasn't been Ihis  good since the sixties. And if he  chose to be on Ihe road till Ihe  time, he could be playing all the  time.

While middle America is once  more tuning into environmental  prolesi songs, Hanini admits,  "I'm still committed to the  blues thing."  Strumming his six-string, or  12-string acoustic National, his  repertoire consists of the more  Bob Marley-type material and  his own work.

Qardening Notes  by Marguerite  Welcome gardeners, and  newcomers to the Sunshine  Coast. Spring reflects an  awakening, and the glowing sun  warms our hearts, especially  after a cold and lengthy winter.  We become aware of nature and  new beginnings.  This is a very active month in  the garden, and well thought-  out plans are developed, so  priorities are important to  achieve our aims. A system of  simplifying and organizing each  month's plantings, involves  placing seed packets into large  brown envelopes (recycled) for  each month's plantings.  At planting time, label tag (be  it wood or plastic) with variety,  name, colour, date and seed  sources, or record in your  garden journal.  Recycled foil plates cut into  strips, using heavy pressure ballpoint pen, will engrave name,  not the ink. White plastic  cutlery is ideal for garden  markers.  Start a new compost pile: include sifted ashes from the  wood stove, sprinkled on layers  Wakefield  Inn  Featuring:  Finn 1 The Sharks  tive.1 Thursday, Friday  & Saturday Night!  of bio-degradable material such  as kitchen scraps and garden  refuse (no fat). Add chicken or  horse manure, seaweek, soot,  comfrey leaves when grown,  grasses and leaves. 'Rot It' or  'Fertosan' activates the layered  mixture, while hundreds of earthworms aerate the pile, making  it worth its weight in gold.  Cultivate the soil: lime; check  for PH, leave two weeks and  test again to correct acidity.  Add 6.86.  Start vegetable garden, planting onions, broad beans,  shallots, radishes, leeks,  parsnips, beets, carrots, peas,  lettuce, cabbage, cauliflower,  broccoli outside. Let the young  folks help by giving them  "their" patch. Early potatoes  can be planted on unlimed  ground only, which prevents  scab.  Prune flowering shrubs:  prune roses right back to a  strong outward facing bud.  Flesh after cut should be white  pith (showing healthy plant).  Brown shows infection. Shear  dead heather flower tops on  one-third of plant.

'Extraction' is the work of  Gibsons resident Bill Somer-  ville. Bill has travelled widely  with his camera through  Europe, the Near East,  overland to the Himalayas and  India, and throughout North  America. Though he has been  interested in photography since  his early teens, his first formal  training was in painting so that  his work contains a colourful  and painterly dimension.  He sometimes combines the  iwo media by painting into his  photographs, but most often  the influence is less direct. A  favourite approach is to extract  random and coincidental  abstractions solely by the act of  recognition, appropriation, and  presentation.  This show opens Wednesday,  April 10 and runs to Sunday,  May 5. Bill Somerville will be al  ihe Arls Centre al 2 pm Saturday, April 1.1 lor a public reception ��� an excellent opportunity  lo meet him and discuss his  work. Everyone is welcome,  and coffee and food will be  served for your refreshment.  Arts Centre hours are 11 to 4  Wednesday to Saturday, 1 to 4  Sundays.

Hitting the  hold: The  Alec Will story  by Peter Trower  Sometimes the casual men  were sent by boat to the Dollar-  ton sawmill on the North Shore,  to work the lumber ships. They  were usually advised to pack a  double lunch ��� which meant a  twelve-hour shift or longer. The  regular men got the cabin on the  work boat. Alec and his spare-  board chums were obliged to  stand outside, often in driving  rain. As a result, they would be  soaked to the skin before they  even began their gruelling  labours. It was no picnic by any  si retch of the imagination ���  but few of them complained.  They were thankful to be working at all.  In 1923, the Vancouver  waterfront was hit by its first  major strike. Alec, still working  the spare board, played no active pari in the bitter labour  dispute. His older brother Jim  however, who had graduated to  steady work on the grain boats,  was actively involved with the  Union.  The International Longshoreman's Association had been in  existence for 13 years at that  time and had grown too powerful for the liking of the Shipping  Federation ��� the autocratic  organization of stevedoring  companies that controlled the  docks. They set out deliberately  to smash the Union. Their  behaviour at the bargaining  table was arrogant and  unyielding, giving the ILA  leaders no option but to call a  strike vote. This was exactly  what the Federation wanted.  They had already conscripted a  large force of strike-breakers to  work the ships, along with office personnel. Armed goons  patrolled the docks and dared  the strikers to interfere. A fast  launch, crewed with hired  gunmen, patrolled the harbour.  The strike dragged on for  over a month but the Union was  beaten from the start. The  Federation refused to budge an  inch and gun-toting thugs continued to barricade the waterfront. The strikers held out as  long as they could but in the end  they were forced to knuckle  under to the Federation's  humiliating  terms.  The  scab  crews became the main  workforce and the Union  members were reduced to casual  labour status. A travesty of a  company union replaced the  now-defunct ILA. Those  known to have taken an active  part in the strike were summarily blacklisted and Alec's  brother, Jim, was among this  number.  "Longshoring was all my  brother knew. He had a wife  and family to feed and he  couldn't see them suffer. So he  swallowed his pride and went to  see Major Crombie who ran one  of the stevedoring outfits.  Crombie was an ex-Army man  from India like a lot of them  were in those days. It was  rumoured that he kept a loaded  pistol in his desk. Anyway, Jim  went in to see Crombie who  looked him up and down. 'Do  you know what ILA stands  for?' he asked him sort of sly-  like.  'International Longshoreman's Association', said Jim,  unsuspecting.  'Wrong, Jim' said the Major  with a smug grin, 'It means: 1  Lost All!'  That was sure the cruel truth  of il. Jim had already been forced to sell his house and a lot of  other possessions. He walked  oul of Crombie's office like a  whipped dog. Later on, the  Federation eased up a bit and  Jim got back on the grain boats.  But he never forgave Crombie  for that."

The Adopt-A-Trail program  has been running for several  years in cooperation with the  BC Ministry of Parks, Ihe  Ministry of Forests and many  municipalities. The program encourages volunteer groups lo  take on the maintenance and  care of a hiking trail or part of a  trail in communities throughout  the province. Such a program is  very successful in Ihe US and is  increasing in popularity in BC.  Adopting a trail gives a group  the opportunity to enjoy the  outdoors together through  meaningful exercise, learning  new skills and participating in  keeping the outdoors and  wilderness in British Columbia  a great and safe place lo visit.  There are many popular  trails, and little government  money for their maintenance.  We would like to congratulate  those many enthusiastic  volunteer groups who have  already adopted or are maintaining a trail. But we need  many more participants. It  doesn't matter which part of the  community they are involved  with. Church groups, schools,  Legion branches, service clubs  or just friends are examples of  groups who have already  adopted "their trail".

Coast teams clean up  During the Easter weekend  two Sunshine Coast Men's  Hockey Association Bantam  House League teams entered the  7th Annual Hastings Tournament, held in the PNE  Agrodome. On Friday the  Kings met Chilliwack. Hat  tricks by Trent Turner and  Chad Lamarche led the Kings to  a 9-5 victory. The Thunderbirds  defeated Howe Sound 5-1 with  a hat truck by Cody Munson  and 2 goals by Mike Yates. On  Saturday the Thunderbirds  defeated Coquitlam 4-3 with a  hat trick by Cody Munson and  a single by Ross Pearson. Chris  Mirosky assisted on all goals.  Later in the day the Thunderbirds defeated host team  Hastings 7-0: Munson 2 goals,  Pearson 2 goals, Mirosky, Yates  and Rdymski with singles. The  same day the Kings lead by Tret  Turner, Chad Lamarche, Evan  Mayers, Tige Pollock and  defence run by Colin MacLeod,  defeated Kamloops 6-5 and  Seattle 7-0.  On Sunday both teams took  to the ice again. The Kings were  victorious in a hard hitting  game with Richmond, winning  7-5. The Thunderbirds played  South Delta and won 3-2. Later  in the day both teams met with  defeat, the Kings going down  5-1 to a strong and rested UBC  Thunderbirds. The SCMHA  Thunderbirds went down 5-3 to  a Portland team.  As both Sunshine Coast  teams had only lost one game  each advanced to play-off berths in their divisions. The Kings  took on Portland, the Thunderbirds took on UBC. The Kings  game was tied 4-4 after a 10  minute sudden death overtime  period.  They then went to a shootout  with 5 players from each team  shooting, total goals to decide  the winner. Trent Turner scored  for the Kings. Richard Selby did  not allow any goals, leading the  Kings to the win. The Thunderbirds jumped into a 4-1 lead  against UBC with goals by  Cody Munson 2, Ross Pearson  1 and Greg Kirkman I, They  hung on for a 4-3 win.  The stage was set for an all  Sunshine Coast playoff later in  the day. Two battered and tired  teams took to the ice lo face  each other. Playing their 7th  game in 4 days the two teams  played to a 3-3 tie, a 10 minute  overtime and then for the second time in the day another  shootout. Chris Croleau played  as cool as always in the  Thunderbirds net and stopped  all 5 King players. Rob Knowles  equally cool had 3 pucks get by  him.  The Thunderbirds were the  overall winners with the Kings  in second, UBC came in third  with Portland fourth.  These two teams faced 10  other teams to come out one  and two. The Hasting MHA  was very impressed with the exhibition of sportsmanship and  skill shown by both learns. Also  the Pacific Coast Amature  Hockey Association was also  shown the type of hockey on the  Coast from the two teams. Six  boys have been invited to a  camp later this summer put on  by the Hastings Express, a  Junior "B" team. Well done to  both teams, we are proud of  you.  Dart  tournament  results  The Gilligan's Dart League  held their annual "Billy August  Memorial" tournament Sunday, March 24 at Gilligan's  Pub. There were 17 double  teams from Gibsons and Sechelt  participating.  We saw the team of Alan  Louie and Cal Gibb defeating  the team of Brian Louie and  Derek Johnson.  The final standings were as  follows: first, Alan Louie and  Cal Gibb; second, Brian Louie  and Derek Johnson; third, Len  Clark and Jim Yelton; fourth,  Harvey Ebach and Skinny. The  highscore for the day was 171,  which went to Alan Louie as  well as the only perfect 180.  Any person interested in participating in the Gilligan's dart  league should come to  Gilligan's on Monday evenings  before 8 pm when the league  starts playing.  The Allstar Atoms made ��� great showing it the Easter weekend  tournament in Sooke.  Drifters shine at tournament  A local atom allstar team,  "Drifters" (aged 10 and 11),  played in an atom 'B' rep tournament in Sooke on Easter  weekend. Rep hockey is composed of teams with players  who are the best from their  minor hockey associations and  while most rep hockey teams  play an average of 60 to 70  games, our local boys have  played less than 20 this season  because of lack of available ice  time.  Their record of four wins and  no losses in the Easter tournament is therefore a considerable  achievement. The tournament  was run on a system where  points were awarded each  period and although the boys  won every game, they did lose a  few individual periods.  Their total points placed  them at third in the tournament.  Jeremy Ruck, Buddy Peers and  James Rickbiel were selected as  "Most Valuable Player" in individual games, and Buddy  Peers was named to a tournament allstar team.  Congratulations to all players  for a job well done.  TERMINAL  Forest Products Ltd.

When I speak to  coaches I tell them, "As a  coach, you've got to help young  people become all they were  created to be. Your job is to  produce good athletes, but  more importantly, good  people."  One of the your greatest  responsibilities is to develop  your athletes' sense of fair play.  Fair play embodies the principles of integrity, fairness,  respect. Fair play emphasizes  the following:  * respecting the rules of the  game  * respecting officials and accepting their decisions  * maintaining dignity under all  circumstances  These principles apply in all  circumstances, and they apply  to everyone in sport ��� athletes,  coaches, officials, parents, spectators.  As a coach, your fair play  aims should be to:  * behave the way you want  your athletes and the spectators  to behave  * respecl both the letter and the  spirit of the game  * help your athletes understand  the reasons for rules and appreciate the job that officials do  * teach your athletes to value  opponents, because without  them there would be no competition  * teach your athletes to lose  with dignity  * emphasize that doing one's  best is more important than  winning  * help each of your athletes  equally  * keep the fun in sport  The athletic skills your  athletes learn from you may be  used for only a few years. The  attitudes they develop towards  themselves and others will last a  lifetime.

The museum is preparing to  mount an exhibit marking the  centenary of the start of the  CPR's trans-Pacific White Empresses which ran from Vancouver and Victoria to the  Orient. The service commenced  in April, 1891 and ended in  September, 1941. For the 50  years of their service, the Empresses were Canada's, British  Columbia's and Vancouver's  link to ihe East. They were the  high poinl for passenger, mail  and freight operations across  the Pacific and the ships, their  masters and crews were an integral part of Vancouver's life.  One of Ihe ships, only, ended  her operational life in Vancouver. Thai was the first Empress of Japan. She ran from  1891 lo 1922 without a hitch,  and left nol only memories bul  pans of herself in BC.  She was beached on the  shoreline of North Vancouver  in 1926 and was dismantled on  site. Bits and pieces of her were  scattered along the coast and into both private and public  hands.  Now, as a major feature of  the exhibition, the museum is  planning to recreate a section of  her Grand Saloon which will incorporate some of the original  windows. The recreation is based on a couple of photos of her  interior that were probably  taken around the turn of the  century, which show, very  distinctly, a specific type of  chair that was part of the furnishings of the dining saloon.  Over the years there have  been rumours that some of  these chairs ended up in a cafe,  possibly in Sechelt, after the  ship's scrapping in Ihe I920's.  The museum would like to  track down even one of these  chairs and borrow it so as to  make copies ."or the proposed  recreated selling.  Anyone with information  about the possible location of  one of these chairs is asked to  contact the Vancouver Maritime Museum at 737-2211.  There is some urgency in this request as the exhibit is due to  open on May 16, 1991.  'I  Dog Obedience Classes  ,.

Call for Inquiry, a citizens' watchdog  group, released a highly critical  report indicting the Canadian  government for its failure to  take action to protect Canada's  coast from a catastrophic oil  spill.  The Call for Inquiry report,  by environmentalists David  Suzuki, Bob Bossin and Dr.  Andrew Thompson, details  federal inaction and demands  thai the Prime Minister respond  with a specific plan lo implement the recommendations of  the government's own Public  Review Panel on Tanker Safety.  "The Canadian government  lias stuck its head in the sand,"  said Dr. Thompson, the recipient of Canada's 1990 Environment Award for Lifetime  "The future of our children  depends on the  quality of education"  ���Harvey Kirck���  And quality education depends on  adequate funding, good facilities, strong  community support and the skill and  commitment of our  teachers. When the  government attacks  teachers with  legislation like Bill  82,* they are  attacking education.  They're saying the  future of our  children is not  very important.  Tell them they are  wrong.  *Bill 82 gives the government the right to overturn a contract  jjoas legally negotiated between teachers and trustees.  hafi  m British Columbia Teachers' Federation  2235 Bunnl Stmt, Vancouver, BC V6J 3H9, (6041 7314121, l-80tW63-��163, FAX 731-4891  Achievement. "Despite the  lesson of the Alaska catastrophe  and the recommendations of  three Canadian commissions  costing millions of dollars, Ottawa has done virtually  nothing."  The Call For Inquiry report is  based on interviews with dozens  of people concerned wilh the  risks posed by oil tankers, from  the chairmen of the inquiries to  fisherman and native leaders,  from scientists to tugboat  workers.  "We asked everyone whether  any improvements had been implemented," explained Bossin.  "The answer was always no.  For instance, all the commissions called for gathering up-to-  date information on coastal environments. You can't know  what to do if you don't know  what is there'. Yet we discovered  that no studies were going on  because the government failed  to commit any money. This is  especially ironic, since Ottawa is  currently paying an American  company to do precisely this  kind of work in the Persian  Gulf!"  Other points raised by the  report include the Minister of'  Transport's stated refusal to require the double-hulling of oil  tankers; the inability of Coast  Guard ship safety inspectors to  do.their job adequately due to  lack of funds; Ottawa's failure  to call an environmental assessment of mushrooming west  coast oil exports; and the complete absence of any ongoing  public involvement.  "Alaskans have learned from  their mistake", said David  Suzuki, "and they have taken  strong measures to protect their  coast. We ask the Prime  Minister, do we have to wait until Canada has suffered a similar  catastrophe before taking action? To continue as we are is to  condemn Canada's coast to the  certainty of environmental  disaster."  Call for Inquiry is a public interest group of over 200 BC  citizens concerned about the  transportation of oil and other  dangerous substances in coastal  waters. The group includes  Robert Bateman, Thomas  Berger, Dorothy Livesay, Peter  C. Newman, Toni Onley, Paul  Horn, Dr. Charles Krebs,  Audrey Thomas, Chief Saul  Terry Robert Davidson, Ann  Mortifee and many other prominent British Columbians.

We Remember When  5 YEARS AGO  The Kleindale Cemetery  Society bought the Klein-  dale Cemetery from the  SCRD for $1. The society,  wilh $15,000 worth of  donated time and materials, upgraded the property, resulting in a life expectancy Increase to the  cemetery of 20 years.  10 YEARS AGO  Directors of the Sunshine Coast Regional  District listened with  polite skepticism last  Thursday night as representatives of Flve-A  Holdings Ltd. of Calgary  outlined a proposal for a  124-unit hotel, condominium, shopping centre and  office complex on District  Lot 1401, directly opposite  the Langdale ferry terminal.  Brian Stelck, alderman  on Sechelt' Council, director on the Regional Board,  and businessman, has a  new title. He was unanimously nominated as a  candidate for the British  Columbia Social Credit  party In the Mackenzie  riding and will stand in the  next provincial election.  IS YEARS AQO  Commenting on a recent announcement made  by Education Minister Pat  McGeer to the effect that  local school districts  would be responsible for  increased costs in education, School Trustee Claus  Skiekerman told the board  last week that "it Is very  difficull to do anything  else but lay off teachers."  As many as 42 teachers  may be affected.  The Ministry of Health  has decided that the Halfmoon Bay ambulance will  definitely remain at its  present location until a  new ambulance station is  opened at the new Pender  Harbour Health Clinic. It  was feared that the move  would leave the area without a service.  25 YEARS AGO  One hour parking starting June 1 will be the rule  in Gibsons' business section stretching from  Jack's Lane on Marine  Drive to the Post Office on  Gower Point Road.  Two local writers, Ber-  trand Sinclair of Pender  Harbour and Hubert Evans  of Roberts Creek, were  honoured by the Vancouver and Mainland Branch  of the Canadian Authors'  Association in the Copper  Room of Capilano Gardens.  Meals, candies, soft  drinks, school supplies  and clothing for children  under the age of 15 were  all ordered exempt from  the five per cent sales tax.  35 YEARS AGO  The $587,000 school  referendum for new classrooms and school  buildings passed with a  majority that surprised  members of the school  board. The total vote, with  the exception of Egmont  still to come, was 636 for  and 134 against.  Gibsons Public Library  has achieved national  fame on the cover of a recent issue of UNESCO  Bulletin for Libraries  published by the UNESCO  section of the United Nations in Paris, France; It  accompanies an article on  library extensions.  45 YEARS AGO  At a meeting of prominent business men and  women at the hotel in  Sechelt, It was proposed  to erect a hospital at Gibsons Landing at the cost  of $40,000.  Mr. J.M. Summerville  from the Department of  Public Works advised that  plans for a new wharf and  breakwater for Gibsons  were now completed.  Assets of the Gibsons  Improvement Association,  totalling $910 will be  spent on tennis courts.  ��� ---������ ��� -��� ���. -    --������-��� ->���'���' ���,.'��.,,���,��� Coast News, April 8,1991  17.  IT'S HOME & GARDEN  Spring  Tune-Up Time  All over the country  people are beginning  projects which will  upgrade and enhance the  place they call home. For  many, the plans for home  improvement have broadened to include not only  the house they live in, but  also their entire yard and  gardens.  With the West Coast so  conducive to outdoor living, the planning and  development of yard and  gardens becomes not only  an opportunity for personal expression and  creativity, but in a very  real sense expands the  "living space" of a home.  Decks and patios become "summer rooms",  with low overhead and little maintenance, and combined with attractive landscaping enhance both the  aesthetic and actual values  of your home for both  present enjoyment and  future investment.

Coast News, April 8,1991  Council notes  Pay or be seized  People mooring boats in  Sechelt Harbour will pay 50  cents a day or have their vessels  seized, according to a motion  passed at an April 3 Sechelt  Council meeting.  The money would be for garbage collection and water service provided by the district; If  those boat owners want power  supplied lo their boats they will  pay $2 a day or $30 a month.  Mayor Nancy MacLarty said  the policies for moorage rates  and services were those  prescribed by small craft harbours and would be on display  in the harbour manager's office.  COWRIE PROPERTIES  TO PAV?  Schools, churches and  residences along Cowrie Street  could pay as much as businesses  to finance the Cowrie Street  Beautification Initiative  (Downtown Revitalization), according to Municipal Planner  Rob Sabine.  Sabine said, at last Wednesday's Sechelt Council meeting,  there was no provision in the  municipal act to allow the different building zones along that  street to be treated any differently with regard to the  amount each will pay to finance  the beautification initiative.  Alderman Doug Reid noted  that, originally, residences,  schools and churches along  Cowrie were to be heavily subsidized (100 per cent for school,  90 per cent for churches, and 75  per cent for homes) by the  municipality when paying their  portion of the initiative, but  that may no longer be possible.  KJNNIK1NNICK GETS  SOFTBALL  The District of Sechelt will  spend $865 to provide Kinnikin-  nick Park with fencing for a  Softball backstop and portable  toilets, according to a motion at  last Wednesday's council  meeting.  The decision was a response  to a request from the Sechelt  Junior Softball League, who  need a place to play because  both the school grounds and  Hackett Park have been ex  clusively   booked   by   other  leagues. "It'll be good to get  some use out of that park,"  noted Alderman Doug Reid.  EARTH DAY FLAT FOR  SECHELT  The District of Sechelt decided, last Wednesday, to purchase  a flag to support the 1991 Earth  Day campaign. Responding to a  letter from Earth Day coordinator Ed Lands, Council will  pay $39.28 for an "outdoor"  version of the flag that will be  flown outside the Municipal  Hall.  "Maybe we can use it again  next year," quipped Mayor  Nancy MacLarty.

Please call Nan at 886-3416 to confirm.  Reunion  plans  proceeding  Wildlife Happenings  Gibsons Wildlife Clubhouse  was the scene of much reminiscing, when founding members  Walter and Morris Nygren and  Captain John Bunyan showed  up at our meeting. On the same  evening, long time member and  supporter Jack Clement was  honoured as a Life Member of  Ihe Club. Jack was taken completely by surprise having been  coerced there by members and  his wife.  BC Conversation Officer  Doug Pierce was invited to address Ihe membership, giving us  better insight into his job and  answering many questions from  the membership.  The plans for the 35th Anniversary Reunion are proceeding well. The date has been  set for the June 2. Members are  asked to conlact all former  members that come to mind.  CLUB ACTIVITIES TO  REMEMBER:  Handgun Practice is now on  both Monday and Tuesday at 7  pm. BC Wildlife Federation  Convention in Cranbrook,  April 18 to 21. Zone 5 Playoffs  for Handgun Competition at  BC Summer Games, will take  place at the Gibsons Wildlife  Clubhouse on May 11.  May 16 to 19, ticket sales  Sunnycrest Mall. We are again  raffling off a Jeep, plus many  other prizes.  CORE Program starts April  4 at Sechelt Rod and Guns  Club. Fred will also be calling  upon members for two Work  Parties to ready the grounds  and clubhouse for the activities.  SCRD Briefs  SCRD Parks Committee Chairman Jeremy Frith says  the processing of the variance permit for a caretaker's  residence at Coopers Green conformed to all requirements.  The location of the mobile home was considered the only viable choice of all the possibilities. The unit was purchased by the caretaker, and turned out to be 10 feet  longer than acceptable. The board applied for the variance  permit and notified surrounding residents.  Although the mobile home was on-site prior to the final  date for submissions on the permit, Frith assured the  Coast News nothing was permanent until the permit was  passed on March 28. He added that there were no major  objections to the variance permit.  EARTH DAY  Regional directors dipped into their own pockets, at the  last board meeting. Each donated $5 toward the purchase  of an Earth Day flag for the SCRD offices. They weren't  sure exactly where it would hang, as the building has no  flag pole.  BUDGET  The final regional budget for 1991 was given first, second and third reading on March 28. Total budget for the  year is $8,650,605. Although Chairman Peggy Connor  says the board did everything possible to keep the figures  down there will, she admitted, be a slight increase of tax  rates.  0  $1.00-A-Bag Days  ALL THIS WEEK  ^THRIFTY'S  HELP THE  GIBSONS  886-2488 or Box 598  Help Wanted  PART-TIME aulo parts counter  person Must have experience.

He also noted that bus schedules were now posted at the Municipal  Hall and the Tourist Office.  During the same discussion, although there had been no request  for funding assistance, Alderman Margaret Morrison suggested that  Ihe Finance Committee look into the possibility of some financial  assistance for the company.  MARATHON FISH DERBY  Gibsons Council gave only conditional support to a proposal from  a Powell River fishing resort to establish a five-month long summer  Ashing derby in Georgia Strait. The purpose of the derby, according  to the originators of the plan, would be to raise money for salmon  enhancement and waste management programs and promote the 'environmentally healthy' tourist industry.  Alderman John McNevin commented that attracting large  numbers of sports fishermen to the area would threaten the already  drastically reduced numbers of salmon in the Strait, and the plan  seemed to be at cross purposes with the goal of enhancement. At his  suggestion, aldermen agreed to pass the proposal along to Travel  Sunshine Coast, with the recommendation that the derby feature  barbless hooks and a 'catch-and-release' system.  SEARCH FOR A TWIN  In response to a letter from Keith Spicer of the Spicer Commission, Gibsons will be looking into the possibility of a 'twinning' arrangement with another Canadian town as a way of encouraging national unity.  About 10 years ago the town had such an agreement with Happy  Valley in Newfoundland. Mayor Eric Small suggested that a connection with a town in Quebec would be an ideal way to achieve the  desired goals, but aldermen decided that they would prefer to consider other provinces too, and not limit their choice to Quebec.  DRV CAVALCADE  The Gibsons Sea Cavalcade Committee is determined to repeat  lasl year's successful alcohol-free celebrations, and in line with this  plan, council denied a request from the Gibsons Yacht Club for a  beer garden at this year's cavalcade.  The club had also requested permission to sell beer and wine at a  May swap meet at the marina, but aldermen noted that council did  not have control over that event and advised the club to apply to the  RCMP for a permit.  SPCA HOME SEEKERS  The SPCA is trying to find homes for two one-year old cats. This  white beauty was found near Redrooffs Road. Both may or may  not be pregnant, but the SPCA is willing to find homes for the kittens should this prove lo be true.

April 8, 1991  Limited edition prints of  Dave Buriigmf's rendition of  Ihe HMS Discovery may soon  be available through the Sunshine Coasl Maritime History  Soriely. Below, society ex-  rt-ulives Mike Clement (left)  and Joe BHanger (right)  ilisiiisN the society's future  plans.  hoi,i* lis Sluael Hornside and Dive  llnmtnil  Discovery on the move?  by Stuart Burnside  The Sunshine Coast Maritime  History Society will, in less  lhan two weeks, vote to move  Ihe focus of the "HMS  Discovery" project from Gibsons Harbour lo a Port Mellon  location, according lo SCMHS  executive member Joe Belanger.  "We're tired of wailing tor  Gibsons Council lo act," Belanger lold ihe Coasl News, "the  level of commitment doesn't  seem to be there."  The sociely has had a long  running problem wilh gelling  Ihe area desired for construction  of Ihe "Discovery" Mined properly.  Belanger lold those gathered  at an April .1 SCMHS Wling  thai the Sunshine Coasl  Regional Dislricl (SCRD) had  made a "solid offer" of a new  silc al Hillside, in Port Mellon.  "Peggy Connor said all we have  lo do is poinl oul the site we  want  on  the map,  and  it's  ours.  The vote lo move the project  will come after the sociely hears  ihe reporl of a new Board of  Advisors; a group put together  by Alderman Ed Steeves lo look  into the feasibility of the  Discovery projeel and report ils  findings to council and the  society. "If it's nol satisfactory  (Ihe reporl), we'll vole lo  move," said sociely chairman  Mike Clement.  The SCMHS was lormed in  late 1986 wilh the idea ol  building a full size, working  replica of Captain George Vancouver's ship "Discovery"; sailed by the captain when he  "discovered" this region in  1792. The goal of the society at  inception was to complete the  building by May of 1992, to  commemorate Vancouver's  voyage. Society members now-  conclude this goal is no longer  realistic.  "However," said Belanger,  "we've sol a lol of interest from  industry and federal and provincial governments, as well as  Interest from local governments, and the project will continue. If not in Gibsons then in  Port Mellon."  "It would be a shame to  move il though," said society  member Lloyd Hicks, "this is  the ideal location...Port Mellon  is pretty far away."  One of the main objectives of  the sociely has been to turn the  actual building of the ship into a  money-making tourist attraction, then to cam additional  tourist dollars by providing  tours of ihe vessel and trips  around Georgia Strait. A Port  Mellon building site would  mean tourism would suffer, in  the ship building portion of the  project at leasl.  "Port Mellon is oul of the  way," said Belanger, "but if  lhat's whal wc have to do lo get  the project moving and still  keep it on the Coast, then that's  what we'll do."  The usual prize of $5 will be  awarded to the first correct entry drawn which locates the  above. Send your entries to  reach the Coast News, Box  460, Gibsons by Saturday of  this week.
