 THE SUNSHINE  WHEN THE  LOCALS  EAT LOCAL  I Overlooking tht Harbour  Gibsons, B.C.  886-2268  50c per copy on news stands  SERVING THE SUNSHINE COAST SINCE 1945  December 2,1991 Volume 45     Issue 48  Fish  report  slams  DFO  The Department of Fisheries  and Oceans (DFO) is slammed  in a recently released report for  its plans to radically reduce  Canada's Pacific fishing fleet  and for proposed policies that  could give control of commercial fishing licenses to private  corporations, speculators and  foreign investors.  The report, The Fisherman's  Report, is the culmination of a  six-month public inquiry headed by Licensing Commissioner  Don Cruickshank, and cites a  controversial DFO document,  Vision 2000, as proof the government intends to distance  itself from the fishing industry  and institute limited licensing  and private quota systems.  ' Cruickshank said the Vision  2000 report called for "transferable quotas" for commercial  licenses which could be bought  or sold by those who possess  them.  He, however, felt there were  already "too many individuals  making money off the backs of  fishermen."  to improve the commercial  fishing industry Cruickshank  called for:  *a full assessment of quota  fisheries  *a halt on individual boat  quotas  'increased salmon enhancement  ���hefty penalties for illegal  fishing  *the licensing of sport fishing operators  *a reduction in the number  of non-owner operators  *more involvement of  natives in the fishing industry  In the report Cruickshank  takes an optimistic view of  commercial fishing's possible  future, calling it a healthy publicly owned resource with  excellent potential for more  jobs.  He said the objective was to  increase the value of the industry through improved management and enhancement and, in  doing so, to ensure the health of  coastal communities and the  province of BC.  Gibsons OCP  unveiled but  not complete  Ploughing along, Centra Gas pipeline crews reached Lower Gibons this past week and  have nearly completed the stretch along Lower Road in Roberts Creek.

Although the section dealing wih Gospel Rock had been inadvertently left out of the plan presented at the November 26 council meeting, aldermen gave first reading to the plan which will be known as  Bylaw 655. The section on Gospel Rock will be aired at the December 3 council meeting and will be included in the bylaw as an amendment  The plan was put together during the last six months by a committee of 13 Gibsons residents which included aldermen Margaret Morrison and John McNevin, with town planner Rob Bgchan serving as  advisor. Morrison, chairman of the committee, explained the plan is  essentially a "statement of intent for the community's future" and  when finally adopted will be a legal document which will ensure  "council can undertake no action which is not in conformity with the  provisions of the plan." Amendments to the plan are possible, but  only after "a required process of public consultation."  The new OCP, the third since 1985, reflects the increasing public  concern with environmental issues. A comprehensive geotechnical  report pinpoints sensitive areas within the town and includes recommendations for the protection of streams, foreshore, parkland and  ecologically sensitive areas.  Although the OCP committee avoided a narrow labelling of the  town as a retirement centre or a suburban residential community, it  emphasized the quiet rural nature of the area and recommended a  blueprint for growth which would protect these qualities, rather than  encourage heavy industrial development.  The 1986 census pegged Gibsons' population at 2674, but current  estimates show the present figure is around 4300, a 12.2 percent per  year increase in the last five years. This is up considerably from the  steady five percent increase in earlier years. The committee projected  future population at 15,000 but did not speculate when this figure  would be reached.  Most of the newcomers are in the over-55 age group, with the next  largest group between the ages bf 25 and 34.  The OCP recommends that the town encourage this mix of age  and economic groups and move towards higher density housing, continuing the recent trend of multi-family housing units. The plan also  recommends encouraging increased affordable rental housing for  seniors, single parents and young people.  Although the inclusion of economic development strategy is not  common for an OCP, the committee incorporated a modified version  of an economic strategy into the new plan. The plan was formulated  by the town's Economic Development Strategy Plan Committee in  TURN TO PAGE 2  Pender residents protest K-12  In an obvious display of concern, about 40 Pender Harbour parents  and residents packed into the school board meeting held Nov, 26 to  register their disapproval of a recent decision to amalgamate the elementary and secondary schools into one K-12 facility in Pender Harbour.  Speaking on behalf of the group, Maggi Jacks made a presentation  to trustees, outlining community objections to the K-12 decision and  asking that the motion supporting the amalgamated school facility be  overturned.  Jacks made her presentation following news last week that a  request for $3 million in funding for a K-12 school had been sent to  Victoria by Secretary-Treasurer Tim Anderson on July 19 - four  months before a public vote was held on the issue.  In the presentation, Jacks stated that the decisions of both the  Future Facilities Committee and the trustees to approve the amalgamated school, despite opposition from parents, indicated the board  had not been dealing in good faith with the community.  Jacks also pointed to the irregularities in procedure - whereby  approval of a K-12 facility was actively encouraged by the Superin-  tendant and Secretary-Treasurer, and a proposal for K-12 funding was  sought before trustees voted on the motion - as representing a "breach  of trust" with the people of Pender Harbour.

Transition house concerns voiced  Joel Johnstone photo  Several community agencies  agree that alchohol and drug  addictions are a growing problem  on the Sunshine Coast. But not  everybody agrees with the details of a recent plan put forward to  open an alcohol and drug recovery house in the area.  Keith McNicol and George Cuthbertaon, the two originators of the  recovery house plan, want to open a men's "transition house" in Port  Mellon which would provide a safe residential setting where ex-  addicts could receive support and "re-learn the skills they need for  everyday living," says Cuthbenson.  Right now, there is no long-term residential help for recovering  alcohol and drug addicts en the Coaat, die men lay. In order to get it  people must travel to halfway houaes in the  Lower Mainland. In addition, there is often a  frustrating two-month wait between the time  clients are referred by local agencies to Lower  Mainland houses, and the time when t place is  available. The time lag involved it ��� crucial  issue, says Cuthbertscn, because "when a person goes to call for help they are usually in very  desperate straits."  McNicol and Cuthbenson are hoping to open their recovery house  in the new year, on a property at the earner of Dunham and Highway  101 in Port Mellon. The program, modelled on the Inner Vision  recovery houee in the Lower Mainland, would involve a three to six-  month slay, die men say, during which time residents would participate in 12-s��ep group therapy pragma Uke the one used by Alco-  boUcs Anonymous.

Nobody with pending criminsl  charges would be sccepted into  the recovery house.  But not everybody is happy about the plan for the "transition  house" in Port Mellon.  In die last week, a group of approximately 15 residents in the area  have voiced their opposition to the plan.  Janet Calder, a spokesperson for the group, said there is concern  the facility would not be properly licensed, and that residents of die  house would not be adequately supervised in the isolated area, espe-.  daily given the lack of recreational facilities. "Where are they going  to go - for walks?" asked Kay Belanger, another area resident  Concern has also been expressed at the number of possible transition house residents. "If it  wss just six or seven people, we'd have no  objection," said Belanger.  The community group said they were calling on governments at both the provincial and  regional level, including the Sunshine Coast'  Regional District to provide some guidelines  for the facility.  According to Steve Olmstead of the Regional District the zoning on die property currently allows for a transition  house ss a permitted use of die premises, but in order to operate, the  society wishing to open the recovery house would need proper licensing snd approval from the board. "Beings permitted use doesn't nee-  eassrily mean it's a go-ahead," he commented.  Without the licensing, up to 15 people can live in the triplex, al  long as die three living units ate run independently, said Olmstead.  TURN TO PAGE 2 Coast News, December 2,1991  Gibsons' Official  Community Plan  FROM PAGE 1  the late 80s. The new strategy  advocates the encouragement of  a mixture of service and tourist-  oriented businesses with less  emphasis on industrial development  It recommends high density  housing units be encouraged  around the commercial cores of  upper and lower Gibsons, with  careful planning to ensure maximum benefits from the town's  spectscular views, and a network of green spsces snd  cycling and pedestrian paths  throughout the community.  The plan foresees the extension of the present seswalk to  the town's northern boundary  (and beyond, with the cooperation of the regional district).  The plan also addresses the  issue of improved traffic flow  snd increased parking facilities,  particularly in lower Gibsons. If  a future fast ferry materializes, a  docking site at the north end of  town adjacent to the Chekwelp  Indian Reserve is suggested.  A new sewage treatment  plant is considered essential "as  the environmental and economic well-being of the town  depends on it"  A future recreation centre is  suggested next to the swimming  pool, and there is a recommendation that land be set aside for  s golf course and RV park and  that consideration should be  given to relocating the elementary school away from high traffic areas.  The plan also looks at the  future need for expanded health  care facilities and municipal  administration buildings and the  preservation of heritage sites.  The geotechnical report by  Thurber Engineering recommended a minimum shoreline  horizontal setback of 15 metres,  increasing to 30 metres in sensi-  Although the section on  Gospel Rock was not available  at last week's meeting, the  geotechnical report contains  several recommendations for  the preservation of sections of  the area.  It notes that "preservation of  the Gospel Rock area and the  development of nearby areas are  not necessarily mutually exclusive, provided such development would not slienste or  degrade the environmental, historic and cultural values that  give the Gospel Rock area its  special status in the community."  The OCP now goes to the  Regional District for comment  and following that a date will be  set for a public hearing, probably early in January.  The 100-page document wih  accompanying maps is now  available for study at the town  hall. Both Mayor Eric Small  and Buchan strongly urged  members of the public to familiarize themselves with the plan  and be prepared to take part in  the public hearing.  "This plan, more than any  previous one, will shape the  Gibsons of the future," ssid  Buchan. He said the plan was  still a long way from the final  draft and it was important for  the public to understand the  plan and make their wishes  known now.  Although the new plan  builds on previous ones which  emphasized the small-town  nature of Gibsons, the population could grow to four times  what it is now, with a density of  20 people per acre. He said substituting high-density housing  for industrial development,  though more in keeping wih the  small town ambience, would  mean an increased need for ser-  Impasse over  water sharing  Lee (top) and Leigh take a peek to see who the next  contributor to Pasttimes Elves Club Depot will be.

Joel Johnstone photo  A letter protesting the integration of the SCRD and Gibsons water supplies was  supported by Director Jim Gurney at the Nov. 27 SCRD meeting, while evoking protest from  Gibsons Mayor Eric Small.  In the letter, the Area E Electors' Association (Gurney's  constituents) points to an agreement made eight years sgo  between the SCRD and Coast  residents in which the SCRD  vowed not to raise water rates  for 10 years as part of a "10  Year Plan", in return for an  agreed-upon water rate "up  front" to help finance the  SCRD's water system. The letter implied that agreement  would be broken if Gibsons integrates into the SCRD water  system.  Gurney said the water rate  agreement was considered a  "sacred trust" by many in his  district and ssid the SCRD  should stick to it.  "We've done that to date,"  Gurney noted, "and they have  every right to expect us to keep  doing it"  Eric Small said Gibsons  didn't want the '10 Year Plan'  to be interrupted in any way and  that the Town intended to pay  its full portion of integration.  "We're not coming to the  Regional District hat-in-hand  looking for subsidies for water,"  Small said. "We intend to pay  our full way."  The Area E electors' letter  also expressed concerns for the  quality and quantity of their  water following integration.  Citing projected Area E development and worries about  the deteriorating quality of  SCRD water, the letter claimed  K Port Mellon residents:  No Transition house  FROM PAGE 1  If kitchen facilities are shared by the three units, s maximum of five  residents is allowed.  Bob Westin, of the Coast Garibaldi Health Unit said that based on  his information, the men's transition house would not require licensing under the Community Care Act because no officially recognized  plan of "treatment" or counselling would be conducted in the recovery house. He said his understanding was the transition house would  be modelled on similar drug snd alcohol recovery houses in New  Westminster and Coquitlam, which are not officially licensed. "We  feel this precedent has been set" he ssid.  Westin added, however, that he had not determined whether the  facility would require licensing under the Guaranteed Annual Income  for Need (GAIN) Act. Under the GAIN Act any facility with 15 or  more people who are receiving social assistance must be approved by  the Adult Care Facilities Licensing Board. "There are still some items  that require further clarification," he said.  Currently, counselling is provided to people with drug and alcohol  problems on the Coast by the Drug and Alcohol Action Centie, but,  there is no residential program.  'ihe addition of Gibsons to the  system would "throw (the  SCRD's water system) over the  edge to s Coast-wide 'boil  water'order."  Gurney, who at the last  meeting made a notice of  motion to begin the integration  process, sympathized with his  electorate, saying, "These are  people who, a number of years  ago, suffered s shortage of  water," and because of that they  have a " hard time getting used  to the idea that there is a surplus.  "And really, Ihere isn't s surplus," Gurney added. "There is  a comfortable supply snd (water  shortage) is s justified apprehension on their part."  That's blackmail,  out and out  blackmail'  Small disagreed with Gurney's assessment of water quantity. He cited a recent  engineering report placing the  quantity of water on the Coast  as "enough for 200,000 people."  "What we should really be  talking about,"Small said, "is  how we can utilize that water."  The final paragraphs of the  Area E Electors' Association  letter tied water integration to  controls on Gibsons' future  growth, particularly over the  Town's further expansion into  AreaE.  "An endless supply of water  to Gibsons will destroy our  community through 'urban  creep'," read the letter. "...Only  locked-in political borders will  allay these fears."  Gurney called boundary controls on Gibsons "key" in the  minds of his electorate.  He agreed with his electorate  association that integrating Gibsons into the water system  would fuel the Town's "urban  creep".  Small called the demand for  control of Gibsons' expansion  "out and out blackmail".  "I don't see why there is  even an effort to tie boundary  extensions to water," Small  said. "...These are two entirely  separate issues...it's an attempt^  by an area outside of Gibsons to  try to control (the Town's)  growth and destiny and it's  something that can't be tolerated at this board."  Later in the meeting, Gurney, pointing to what he called  an "impasse" over personality  on the water integration issue,  ssked Chairman Connor to replace him as the overseer of the  proposed project.  Connor said she would consider his request.  Application Form For .��.

Doug Moffatt, the co-ordinator of the Sunshine  Coast Lifeline Project, said the $5,000 donation  from Centra Gas, which sponsored the Up With  People musical tour, is terrific news for Lifeline.  "The Lifeline Project is designed to provide  people, who have life-threatening health problems,  with a fast way of communicating with a hospital,"  said Moffatt.  He said many people can't afford the electronic  Lifeline devices which enable a sufferer in crisis to  speak to a hospital.  "Of the 17 installed to date about half aren't  paid for so you can see how welcome the donation  is," he said.  Leonard Lavender, Centra's district supervisor  in SecheH, said Centra sponsored the Up With  People tour to thank communities for supporting  Centra's activities, to increase awareness of the  benefits of natural gas and, through charitable  donations, to leave lasting benefits in the communities.  "It's our way of saying thanks to the people of  Sechelt," he said.  K-12 protest from Pender  FROM PAGE 1  tion against the K-12 facility  signed by over 800 Pender Harbour residents, Jacks asked that  a decision to :revefse the K-12  motion be made by trustees at  the next board meeting on Dec.  10. Jacks said she hoped the  board would not build a school  "where the foundation would be  built on the animosity of its  community.  "A vast majority of the community strongly opposes and  will not accept a K-12 facility in  Pender Harbour," she said. "The  people will not give up until the  school board's decision is overturned and replaced by a community supported option."  Commenting after the meeting, School Board Chairman  Maureen Clayton said the proposal for capital facilities funding had been submitted July 19,  before the K-12 vote, in order to  meet Ministry of Education  guidelines and ensure projects  decided on by the board would  not have to wait a year for funding.  She added, however, that she  had hot been aware the funding  was sought specifically for an  amalgamated facility. "I think  there was a misunderstanding  on my part," said Clayton. "I  didn't realize the submission  was for a K-12 option. So I  have to review the process and  see what happened there."  Clayton said she thought the  renovation and expansion funds  applied for could be used for  either renovations to the existing elementary school or an  amalgamated facility, depending on the school board decision.  According to minutes of the  school board meeting held June  25, a motion was passed to  request capital funding for  "additions and necessary renovations" to Madeira Park Elementary School.  But Secretary-Treasurer Tim  Anderson said the proposal sent  to Victoria specified a K-12  facility.  Clayton said the board would  now be considering the Pender  Harbour petition. "In my view,  yqu can't ignore 800 signatures," she said.  If the school board should  decide to rethink the Oct. 22  decision to amalgamate the  schools, a two-thirds majority  of the trustees would be  required to pass a motion calling for reconsideration of the K-  12 decision.  Clayton warned, however,  that funding sources in the Min  istry of Education would not  look favourably on "waffling"  by the trustees. "The secretary-  treasurer has always warned us  that they, must have a clear  direction from a board before  they consider capital expenditure," she said.  Secretary-Treasurer Tim  Anderson said if the school  board decided to reverse its  decision, the issue of whether  funds would get delayed would  likely depend on whether the  proposal had reached the Treasury Board.  Meanwhile, Jacks said Pender Harbour residents are prepared to take the issue to  Victoria if the board refuses to  reconsider the K-12 decision.  She said the group of concerned  parents has already enlisted the  support of Liberal leader and  local MLA Gordon Wilson,  Liberal education critic Doug  Symons, and former NDP candidate Howard White, and were  waiting for a response from the  office of Education Minister  Anita Hagen.

The brief euphoria  which saw us celebrate the end of the Cold War and the  collapse of the Communist empire has been replaced with  a chilling view of what can happen when even the most  misguided entity begins to come apart.  Especially are the events in the embattled Balkans disconcerting for those ethnic groups who seek to establish  their own territories for this or that historic or imagined  reasons. Need it be pointed out that Canada has a sepa-  ratiste problem of its own.  The forces of intense nationalism in Quebec may be  learning a few lessons as they watch the tortured thrashings of the break-up of the Yugoslavian federation. It has  already been asserted that if Quebec breaks away from  Canada the Indians of Northern Quebec have every intention of breaking away from Quebec.  This pattern of embattled splinters breaking away from  embattled splinters is in part the tragedy of the Croats and  the Serbs and the possible fate of all the other republics of  the former Union of Soviet Socialist Republics. In every  republic there are minorities, many nursing ancient  grievances, waiting to break away in turn.  In what was Yugoslavia we see what may be a glimpse  of a terrible future. Instead of a steady and forward movement away from a world of wars, a movement down to a  dark night of anarchy and tribal hatreds where in the  words of one civilized and non-melodramatic observer,  the people will 'rather kill than eat' as has seemed to be  the case between the Serbs and the Croats of late.  Of course, the Serbs and the Croats are in part refight-  ing the Second World War, where the ascendant Croats  were part of the Nazi Empire and behaved towards their  neighbours with all of the Nazi inhuman arrogance.  ; But more than this, there is the millenia-old clash  between the followers of the Greek Orthodox Church, the  Serbs, and the Roman Catholic Church, the Croats. And  isn't it ironic how often the most terrible and inhuman  clashes take place between peoples who have a different  view of how the Supreme Being should be worshipped.  Throughout the world there lies fertile soil for ancient  hatreds and the shedding of blood. If loving is stronger  than not-loving as some would have us believe, the  advantage is often so slim as to be indiscernible.  ; We stand as ever on the narrow ridge between evolution and backsliding. Too many great and brilliant and  rich civilizations have disappeared into the mists of time  heretofore for us to doubt the possibility of the world we  have known falling back into a dreadful barbarism of warring pieties and the hunger for conquest or revenge.  Be careful, Mike  I Credibility in government is hard to come by. Premier  Harcourt desperately wants it; B.C. desperately needs it.  '. But, Mike, two flip flops in the same week?  �� In the Orient assurances there would be no new tax initiatives, modified on return to allow tax increases. Why  fio new initiatives? We have the biggest deficit in the  ferovince's history.  . Again in the Orient, assurances of going slow on labour  legislation. A total reversal this time to the delight of the  fi.C. Federation of Labour. It will do neither the government nor the trade unions any good to allow the appearance of labour domination. Sixty percent of the voters  yoted against the NDP last time. Be careful, Mike.  letters  Better planning  needed for storms  After two bad storms, lost  power and cable, terrible overtime costs of repair, replacement of services, electronic  damage, etc., why are our planners not seeing the problem in  respect to getting on with proper clearance around and along  these lines'?  Hydro should have 100 foot  clearance rights on these areas.  Private property and other types  of land should be cleared and  maintained like any other areas  in this province.  I hope that Hydro, the  Regional District and the town  of Gibsons will get together  with professional planners frwn  Vancouver and get this coastal  community back on a safe resi-.  denrial footing.  Trees are wonderful but they  art not properly maintained by  the owners in these communi-;  ties.

Also, in your article about  the sign that Anna Hanson is  carving for the museum; the  fact that the Sunshine Coast  Regional District board will  also be asked to the dedication  ceremony for the unveiling was  inadvertently left out  They and the Town of Gibsons each donated 50 percent of  the coat for the signage and we  would Uke to show our appreciation to both of these bodies.  It's another case of co-operation  between them to serve the entire  population of the Coast.  Thank you for your continued support  ELVTNA MORRISON  Editor's Note: Our apolo-  fi��.  ...but who wrote  the Wilson profile  Politics and the art of  anonymity...hmmm. It's Tuesday morning, around 9 o'clock  and I just read a wonderfully  insightful article about Gordon  Wilson on the front page of the  Coast News. I know now that  this personable politician who  wears slippers around the house  once hiked to the summit of  Kilimanjaro; that he plays  piano, is trained in theatre and  used to raise chickens. In fact,  there's only one burning question left...who wrote the article?  ANONYMOUSLY CURIOUS  (MAGGIE MONDAY)  Roberts Creek  Editor's Note:  Jane Seyd's byline was  accidentia left off 'Politics and  the Art of Chainsaw Maintenance'last week.  Concerns about  new gas pipeline  There are a number of people  in Roberts Creek who have a  major concern about the gas  pipeline coming through our  community: only the high pressure line (white pipe) is being  laid. The low pressure line (yellow pipe), which is the distribution line, is not being laid in  Roberts Creek.  This means Roberts Creek is  not slated for hookup as Gibsons and Sechelt are. We have  been given three different  responses from three different  officials upon enquiring about  this: 1) Roberts Creek will get  gas in Phase 2 (dig up the same  trench and put the low pressure  line down) in a year or two; 2)  residential hookup is possible  off the high pressure line, just  We welcome letters to the editor on matters of public  interest.

We want the work on the  Roberts Creek portion of the  gasline stopped until this matter  is sorted out! lt is a misuse of  taxpayers' money to dig the  same line twice instead of once  and it is a nuisance to put up  wih traffic disruption twice.  Residents can call Len  Lavender at 885-6117 or the  heads of Centra Gas in Victoria:  Bill Burton, Norm Didur, or  Jack Kraet at 380-3300 or fax:  380-3320 to express their concern.  CAROLANN GLOVER  Whose standards  are appropriate?  I don't mean for this to  sound like a trashy letter but I  refuse (or refuse) not to express  my opinion.  I've been adhering to all the  standards by which our garbage  is being accepted by the district.  The amount of cans, the size of  the cans, and that it will not be  picked up by the trash collectors  if it isn't in a can but in a bag.  1 work hard enough to recycle everything except I end up  still with one can of garbage per  week. 1 put the can at the end of  the driveway and when 1 get  home, it's never where I left it  I've found it in the ditch with  the lid flung like a frisbee many  feet away. Yes, always just  tossed away.  If we residents of the Coast  are subject to all the district's  standards, why then aren't the  garbage men given any standards? Once, just once, I would  like my garbage can put back in  one piece, rather than just trashing it.  SHERRIPAYNE  Candlelight vigil to mark massacre anniversary  ���MMM lt|d  ; With candles and white carnations, it will be a  time for ren ranee and reflection this Friday  Evening as the Sunshine Coast Women's Transition House joins groups across the country to com-  itemorale the second anniversary of what has  tfceome known as the "Montreal Massacre".  ; In that event, 14 women were killed by a man  wielding a semi-automatic rifle who opened fire in  L;'Ecole Polytechnique engineering school.  ; Since then, the events of Dec 6 have come to  symbolize the increasing threats and incidents of  violence faced by women across the country.  ��� In October of this year, federal MPs unanimously approved a bill declaring Dec. 6 a national  day of remembrance and action on violence  against women.  I On the Sunshine Coast, candlelight vigils will  begin at S p.m. at both the Royal Canadian Legion  Cenotaph in Sechelt and at Pioneer Park in Gib-  sins. "First mourn. Then work for change" is the  tUeme of the vigil. Everyone is invited to attend.  '. During the past year, the Sunshine Coast  December 6 now symbolizes threats, violence  Women's Transition House handled 429 crisis  calls and provided temporary shelter for 75 families of women and their children. Stays at the transition house varied from an afternoon to a couple  of months.  The reasons women contacted the transition  house also varied widely, says Jullin, a counsellor  and spokeswoman for the centre. Examples might  range from a single mother who needed emotional  "time out" to a woman who was baiily battered  and needed a safe place where her husband or  boyfriend couldn't find her.  Just what constitutes "abuse" is often difficult  to define, says Jullin. "There's so much of it in our  society." Abuse can be physical, sexual or emotional, and can involve anything from punching  and hair pulling to emotional intimidation and  deliberately isolating a person from family and  friends.  Most of the women who contact Transition  House are being abused by men, says Jullin,  although that isn't always the case Most of the  time the abuser is either a husband, ex-husband,  boyfriend or ex-boyfriend.  In some cases, men also call Transition House  : they are worried about female friends, or  : they realize they are becoming potentially  abusive, says Jullin. Calls from both men and  women can remain anonymous.  Transition House itself, the location of which is  kept secret, has 12 beds for women, funded by the  Ministry of Housing and Social Services.  Counsellors at the centre offer support for the  women. They may also give advice and make  referrals to other local support groups and agencies  if appropriate. Final decisions, however, are left  up to each woman. "Whether she decides to go  bade to her husband or boyfriend, or go out on her  own, that's op to her," says Jullin.  Moat problems and patterns of abuse are fairly  universal, says Jullin. Sometimes, however, the  rural nature of the Sunshine Coast can create special problems for women here, "It's often much  more difficult for women here to get help than it is  m the city," says Jullin, because of the combination of geographical isolation and lack of transportation. "A woman can be physically stuck here  because she literally can't leave."  Transition House has a 24-hour phone service  for women needing help on the Sunshine Coast.  To women concerned about abusive relationships,  who need either help or information, Jullin says,  We re here, we do exist, and we would certainly  welcome their calls."  The vigil on Friday is being put on to show  concern for increasing levels of violence in soci-  ety; es��2,ally violence direc,��l against women.  in 1990,234 women were murdered in Canada.  Of these, 62 percent were killed in their own  homes by their husbands, boyfriends, or other men  they knew intimately.  Bring your own candles to the vigil. Both men  and women are welcome.

All of these it turned out were relatively  small places (no one mentioned Palm Springs or Hawaii or even  Bangkok), and almost all of them were on good-sized bodies of  water.  This does not apply, of course, to San Miguel up on its interior  plateau, but a surprising four close friends have been in San Miguel  for reasonable periods and Bruno Gerussi of this town has a restaurant there, and all agree that it is one of the world's special places.  Nonetheless I found myself relieved to be on the old ferry back to  Langdale.  San Miguel we all agreed about and there were others the others at  least knew about: Chester in Nova Scotia, the Azores out in the  Atlantic; but there was one that stays in my memory that nobody else  could place. It was the only purely vacation place and the only one  near the middle of Canada.  Victoria Beach is on the eastern shore of Lake Winnipeg, the farthest north place on the eastern shore. This is where the Laurentian  Shield, stretching right across from Labrador ends, and this is the end  of the romantic landscape of rock and pine and birch until you get to  the Rockies. West from the beach is 40 miles of lake and then the  prairie begins, poplats and alders and at this point the Icelandic fishing town of Gimli.  Running a dirty election  What made the beach a special place? Primarily I think that it had  been decreed that there be no road up to it. The original cottage  builders had had the sense to see that what this place didn't need was  cars. It was the end of a CNR line running up the east coast, and if  you went to the beach you went by train.  At the little station there'd be a line of boys with wagons and for a  quarter, or maybe one was a young brother, they'd pull your luggage  after you and you'd walk. Some would walk five and more miles  along the winding sandy lanes, liberally supplied with boulders,  under the arching trees. When you got to Victoria Beach you were  instantly 'somewhere else'.  The business of keeping it this way became, of course, more and  more difficult as more and more people discovered the place and  bought lots and built cottages and joined the Victoria Beach Club.  The Club, throughout the years, had controlled the annual vote  about the road, and various stratagems were worked out in secret  enclave to control the votes of these newcomers.  By 1935 there was the clear beginning of homo automobilis.  These were people wedded to their cans. After a train time you could  come upon them wading through the sand, red faced, city dressed,  carrying baggage if they hadn't found a boy and muttering stuff that  didn't sound like a pean to nature. The votes on the road came to be  like votes in the US Senate.  A young brother of mine, an anti-road man, became Reeve for a  time. He was accused by the road people of running a ditty election.  He had obtained from the retiring municipal engineer the only map  there was of where all the pipes were layed, and somehow this proved  more effective than knowing where all the skeletons were.  Third party to the debate  All along there'd been a third party to this debate. The Ateahs  were a large and varied family, living year-round on the other side of  the peninsula, on Traverse Bay. They fished, market gardened and cut  ice in the winter. They were privileged to run a few old high strung  trucks which could manoeuvre through the narrow lanes and somehow cope with the boulders. Well, of course, everyone needed their  stuff.  They had originally come from Syria but this generation was also  strongly Cree and strongly English. They, too, got to feel strongly  that they needed a road, for winter and to expand their market. The  Ateahs were a more formidable bunch and not much impressed by  tricky political moves. There got to be stories of people coming home  from the Saturday night dance being leaped upon by little bands of  Ateah.  It was at this stage when a lot of us left for the war. When we got  back the scene had changed and the road was a building. The Ateahs  had gone into mink farming and were driving about in Packards and  had got a lawyer and got to the Legislature. The railway would be  stopped and the road would push through.  The club beefed up its memberships again and managed a number  of amendments. Today when you get there, there is a huge arch saying 'Victoria Beach - Park Here', and there is a huge parking lot and  kids with wagons still hang about there. No money for municipal  roads is budgeted for the future. The old debate carries on between  much the same people, and so far the good guys have kept the ascendancy.  And Victoria Beach remains on my list of special places, with Fire  Island and San Miguel and the Azores and the Sunshine Coast.  Transition houses  Men and women's substance abuse transition houses  are becoming a fact throughout  British Columbia. I'm sure we  will have our share here on <he  Coast. And so we should. It is  the responsibility of human  beings to help one another.  The problem I find with  these transition houses is that  they do not provide treatment in  the facilities - this is how they  get around the licensing factor.  Therefr*. the transition  houses become nothing more  than ho .ding houses. This does  not ,lp either the residents of  the community or the residents  of the transition houses.  Both the provincial and  regional governments should  provide regulations, by-laws  and indisputable guidelines for  these facilities.  At present, these houses  strike me as a money making  scam where the residents of the  programs are charged $485 per  month. For these transition  houses to break even, let alone  make money, the people will be  living in overcrowded accommodations.  No one can hide from their  moral and social responsibilities. If anyone shares my concerns, I would like to hear from  you. I plan on lobbying both the  provincial and regional governments to implement guidelines  and regulations. Perhaps then  neither the communities nor the  substance abusers will be victims.  JANET CALDER  Port Mellon, BC  Hush approach  applied to taxes  Wake up friends!  It has occurred to me that a  good majority of taxpayers,  both residential and business,  are asleep when it comes to.  municipal happenings in  Sechelt. It also occurred to me  that council knows how to  inform taxpayers when sewer  taxes are due and annual property taxes are to be paid. But  when it comes to changing the  areas with bylaws, they like to  get them passed with the hush-  hush approach.  The hush approach is to publish the hearing date wih an  illegible map of the area and a  note stating that more information is available at the town  hall. The gang of seven knows  how and where to mail the tax  notice, but when it comes to  public input and scrutiny, the  least information the better.  The last public hearing of  Bylaw 22-16 and 22-17 is a  classic example.  The only reason there were  five people in attendance was  an unrelated building dispute in  Area 6.  So on December 4 the same  bylaws will be open for public  discussion. They likely will be  passed and will affect areas in  ways that are not necessarily  conducive to the future well-  being of individual businesses  or residential property owners  of Sechelt.

Ann-Lynn Flowers  5654 Dolphin St, Sechelt MS-MIS  (Across tram the RCMP)  70 Q  Is the lack of involvement by  the taxpayers because they have  members and the planning committee, that they are happy to  give these people a blanket go-  ahead with whatever they want  to do in this town? Does the  Chamber of Commerce take  time to investigate the ramifications of council decisions?  Are we all hibernating, or is  it that nobody really cares until  the tax bill comes, or when you  find out that you don't like what  you see when it is too late?  Maybe it is complacence, a  serious illness which the whole  of Canada is suffering from.  0, how I wish I knew a cure.

Wilson said the house was to shelter 27 men, a number greater  than the residents of the area. "I'm concerned that very little consultation has been done with the area's residents," Wilson said.  SCRD Chairman Peggy Connor pointed out that the building  selected for the transition house was a triplex and provincial legislation prohibited its occupation by more than IS unrelated people.  Wilson responded that there was no way to control the number of  TERMINAL  Forest f*roducts Ltd.  people in the house.  "We have no way, given ihe transient nature of the people using  that facility," Wilson said, "to know how many people (are using that  facility) at any given time."  According to Wilson, the transition house doesn't need a provincial license to operate because it doesn't provide treatment as such.  Director Jim Gurney said that under Regional District by-laws, transition houses were permitted if they didn't require licenses, but said the  Port Mellon area was not the place for one.  Wilson echoed this thought, saying, "This Regional District should  take some action regarding this facility." He said he had concerns  about the physical structure of the proposed site and recommended  the provincial government be informed of those concerns as well as  the Coast Garibaldi Health Unit, the SCRD building inspector and the  fire department. "  Gibsons Mayor Eric Small agreed the Pott Mellon area was not  the place for the transition house but said he recognized the value of  service provided by such a facility.  "1 think there is a need for this kind of facility (on the Coast),"  said Small, "and if it does result in people getting rehabilitated, I have  a difficulty in making it almost impossible for them to locate somewhere."

Alcohol and drug addiction  isn't just a big city problem. In  fact, there are growing numbers  of people with a substance  abuse or addiction problem  right here on the Coast.  Just ask Keith McNicol or  George Cuthbenson. They  know, because they've been  there.  McNicol, who is a "recovering addict" and now lives on the  Coast, says he grew up with  street values in Vancouver,  which included learning how to  drink at a young age. From his  first experiences with alcohol at  around age 12, McNicol says, "I  learned early that alcohol made  me feel good and it took away  my problems temporarily."  Soon, his addiction to alcohol led to other drugs, which  McNicol says were always  readily available. Eventually,  he became addicted to heroin.  Despite his addiction, McNicol says he held down a regular  job as a shop steward for thirteen years, which in some ways  gave him the sense that his life  was still functioning normally.  "I never knew my life was  unmanageable," he says. "I  always felt I was a survivor.  You did whatever you had to  do."  In maiiy cases, that m'tfb.^ed  both violence and robber^  which landed him in riunRWus  jailhouses over his years as an  addict. "I have a long criminal  record," says McNicol, "and it  all had to do with alcohol and  e��  It also led to several unsuccessful suicide attempts.  Eventually, he says, he  ended up on the Sunshine  Coast, where he had family, in  an attempt to get away from  what he felt was the bad influ-  Constitutional  reform is about  many things.

Once here,  however, he found the drugs  were still available and he was  still addicted.  Two years ago, however, he  saw a sign for the Drug and-  Alcohol Action Centre in  Sechelt, and decided to make  the effort to find it. "That was  the beginning of my recovery,  when I wandered through those  doors," he says.  Since then, McNicol has  been through the Last Door  recovery house program in New  Westminster, which he says was  "a whole new experience of  learning how to feel again."  "1 had said for so many yeats  '1 don't care', that I didn't know  how to care. 1 was a very confused and violent person," says  McNicol. At the recovery  house people showed support  for him without strings attached  for the first time ever, he says.  "This was all very foreign to  Now that he's been "clean"  for two years, more recently  McNicol has also turned to  helping other addicts, with both  the local Breakaway program  for teenagers and the Action  Centre's "Newly Clean and  Sober" group. He's also taken a  course in frontline training for  residential care settings.  Asked about his motivation,  McNicol comments, "It's  important to my recovery to  give back what's been so freely  given to me."  Similar themes are echoed  by George Cuthbenson, who  came to the Coast 14 years ago,  and worked as a log scaler for  many years. In Cuthbertson's  case, the drug of choice was  more conventional - alcohol.  "My doctor told me six yeats  ago I was an alcoholic," he  says, "but he was only my doctor. My life still appeared to be  functioning."  Cuthbertson says that like  many addicts, he wouldn't  admit to having a problem. "Not  until my life fell apart," he says.  The turning point came, says  Cuthbertson, when his older sis-  Elphinstone  Secondary  -News���  QOCOUGARSI  Out Sr. Boys' Basketball team defeated Cariboo Hill  Secondary, Burnaby, last Tuesday, 58-57.

TOPIC: DRUG ABUSE/TRAFFICKING POLICIES  Keith McNicol and George  Cuthbertson are a  "recovering addict" and  "recovering alcoholic" on  the Coast who want to  start a transition house  for men near Port Mellon.  The need for this kind of  facility on the Coast Is  increasing, the men say.  Jane Seyd photo.  ter died of alcohol-related complications. At Uie same time, he  was personally faced with  charges of both impaired driving and wife battering.  He realized then, he says,  that he needed help badly, and  found the start at the local Drug  and Alcohol Action Centre.  Like McNicol, Cuthbertson also  eventually made his way to a  recovery house on the Lower  Mainland. "I'm incredibly  lucky. I had only one problem,"  he says. "Nowadays I doubt  there's anybody coming in who  doesn't have a multiple addiction."  Both men say that people  who believe there's no problem  on the Coast are fooling themselves. "1 know there's a problem on this coast because I've  bought many drugs here in the  past," says McNicol.  Figures from a report conducted by the Drug and Alcohol  Action Centre bear out their  comments. In 1990, 145 people  sought help at the centie, while  77 people sought help in the  fust half of 1991. And these are  only the addicts who have recognized their problem and are  trying lo do something aboul it.  Two-thirds of the people  seeking help are men, who are  in need of further services on  the Sunshine Coast, the report  says.

Ron Biggs, who is cadet liaison officer to the  Sechelt Legion, Branch 140 and to the Seaforth  Regiment in Vancouver, was telling us in an interview what the cadets, at present just over 20  teenage boys and girls, can learn in die years they  are enrolled in the corps.  "In the weekend exercises outdoors, for  instance, cadets make overnight shelters, and also  put their map and compass knowledge to work.  We try to have these outdoor exercises every six  weeks since the cadets are offered a real challenge  in them.  "Some cadets who are qualified are selected to  attend six week summer camps in various parts of  the country for special training, like scuba diving,  for example," Ron said.  The cadet corps here on the Sunshine Coast is  assisted by a Parents Group which organizes  fundraising and other matters like ensuring a place  to parade weekly. At present the cadets meet Tuesday in the legion hall. "The public is invited to  visit on parade nights to see for themselves cadet  training in action."  For information on the cadet corps, telephone  one of these officers: Shirley Sommerfield 885-  2180; Jim Lappin 885-4468; Ron Biggs 886-2366.  "We do need another three training officers,"  said Ron, "and anyone wih some experience related to cadet training we'd like to hear from."

Located in the old  'goon saloon' directly above the Delifish Cafe in  downtown Roberts Creek, Eclectica has created an  uncluttered, bright space punctuated with the most  unusual and delightful papier mache an creations.  The gooseneck floor lamp that's been transformed  with creative vision and papier mache into a stork  is definitely very special. Another favourite is the  round, intricately painted tin with a papier mache  man reading, drinking coffee, and using the tin as  a table. The tin opens to store treasures inside.  llie decor of Eclectica includes antique wood  accents, with large multi-paned windows facing all  four directions, each wilh a different view of  Roberts Creek. Micheline Larose and Georges  Gamache are the dynamic duo who have started  the gallery and contributed much of their own art.  Other artists are also on display. Hours are Tuesday through Sundays, 10 am to 5 pm. Larose and  Gamache have earned a nationwide reputation  with their 10 years work in papier mache. Look for  the grand opening in February around the time of  Mardi Gras.

Well, last Friday, November 22, the Roberts  Creek Beavers had their first Camp In A Box  sleepover. The theme was transportation and all  the boxes were magically transformed into care,  boats, campers and planes. The boys and their parents had great fun with all the activities, which  included building matchbox care, racing them, and  pretending to be an old Ford car. The evening  ended with a lively singsong and all too soon the  happy campers were tucked into their boxes for the  night.  Morning soon arrived and everyone bundled up  warmly and trudged outside for a hike with a  breakfast in tow. All the Beavers, including our  guest Beaver from Madeira Park, Kenny Daniels,  agreed that, YES, we must have another Camp In  A Box soon.

It turned out that the Halfmoon Bay Christmas Bazaar was scheduled for the same Saturday  when they were to be on duty at the Thrift Shop,  which is December 7. The Roberts Creek group  very kindly agreed to take over on that date and  the Halfmoon Bay group will be on duty on  December 14.  CAROL SINGERS  To date 1 have not received any information  on this, but am quite sure the Halfmoon Bay Fire  Department will be taking a group of kids on  board the fire truck and driving throughout the  neighbourhood to sing carols for the pleasure of  all. Maybe later I will receive time and date of  this always enjoyable event.  SEAWEED  I hope you all took advantage of the stormy  seas of recent days to collect a load of seaweed  for your garden. Makes great fertilizer and the  price is right.  I noticed quite a bit of storm damage along  Redrooffs, including the fence along the front of  the Paterson house which was almost totally  blown away by the wind. Makes for lots of extra  repair work.  ATTENTION WRITERS  I know there are lots of you in the Halfmoon  Bay area who like to do a bit of writing. Well,  here is your chance to win some cash for your  efforts.  The Suncoast Writers' Forge is having its  annual Magazine Writing Contest which is open  to residents of the Sunshine Coast.

Newly-elected provincial  Liberals, shown here  swearing Into office in  Victoria, met to discuss  and determine strategy and  policy over the November  23rd weekend at Lord  Jim's Resort.  Bruce Martin photo  Wilson, caucus discuss  land claims at retreat  Indian land claims was one of the mqjor issues discussed  at the Liberal Party caucus at Lord Jim's Lodge on November 24.  In a conference with local and national media, MLA  Gordon Wilson outlined his party's proposal for settlement  of outstanding claims based both on the 19 recommendations of the BC Claims Tssk Force and the proposals pat  forward by the Sechelt Indian Band.  Wilson said the proposal essentially calls for a cash settlement which would be reinvested in the community  through salmon enhancement programs.  "This can be a win-win situation and could be a test  case," said Wilson. "The approach put forward by the  Sechelts is fair, equitable and affordable and wll see a significant reinvestment In the enhancement of our salmon  fishery if the claim proceeds."  Wilson said he would put Us proposals before Minister  of Indian Affairs and Northern Development Tom Siddon  and Minister of Aboriginal Affairs Andrew Petter.

Money for  UNICEF  Roberts Creek parents and  students have proved to be a  most considerate community.  During October, the students  spent some time considering  the children of developing  nations.

Older students in Mr. Jeff  Marus' class fasted for 24  hours and collected pledges, I  from family and community, j  to send to UNICEF. The j  youngest child in each family  of the school community took  home the traditional orange  UNICEF box and collected  money for the annual  fundraising drive. The  response was overwhelming.  The fast raised over $800 and  the UNICEF collection boxes  raised over $700, more than  previous years.  kyJqmMy  NEW OFFICERS FOR  BRANCH 69  The officers selected for  1992 of Branch #69 are as follows: president, Len Herder, 1st  vice-president, Stan Johnson;  2nd vice-president, Tom Bitting; secretary, Barbara Flanke;  treasurer, Dorothy Skog and  treasurer of the building committee, Viv Pallot.

That funky little store sure  has helped us out a lot, the way little ones go through clothes. I'd like  to thank Doris for all the time she has put into making the Thrift  Store happen.  It was so beautiful the other day when the weather lifted. Uriah  and I played in the school yard, then went to the school library.  There's a lot more books now and new bookshelves, thanks to one  vety busy carpenter.

Yes, we exist and  have been carrying on (quietly)  with a number of interviews and  fact-finding projects to get the  ball rolling to establish a recycling depot in the Pender Harbour area.  After a series of ups and  downs, a GRIP (Garbage Recycling In Pender) committee of  three pulled themselves together, interviewed a number of  people in the Harbour area and  discussed possible recycling  efforts that could be implemented in the near future. The committee met with positive results  from nearly all parties and as of  mid-November has three important announcements to make to  the community.  First, the GRIP crew put  together a small table at the  November 2 swap meet at the  Community Hall in Madeira  Park. Through the sale of  plants, recycled Christmas  paper, second-hand culverts,  baked goods and a beautiful  stained glass candle holder,  which was raffled off, the GRIP  group made roughly $275! This  is fantastic and could not have  been done without the help of  June Malaka, Sage Wright,  Michael Sargent, Edith Daly,  Helen Christian, Linda Goble,  Jay Hamburger and Val Ver-  ralL.just to name a few of the  numerous folk who have come  to the aid of their local recycling group's efforts. In particular Ms. Malaka's donation of  the beautiful glass candle holder  (which she made) was indeed  most helpful in getting the fund  drive underway...and she  deserves a big thanks!  The second announcement is  that an annual general meeting  of the recycling group was held  November 27 at the Pender  Harbour High School. The factfinding committee's report was  presented and plans of action  were also discussed.  The third announcement is  that the fact-finding crew of  GRIP has come up with what  looks like a possible and quite  fine, convenient recycling depot  site. Richard, Joe and Ken of  Mountain View PetroCan Service station have offered some  space on their site to set up bins  when we want to start collecting/taking our recyclables to  market. The PetroCan crew  deserves a tip of the hat from  the community for taking an  interest and caring.  But the issue of possibly setting up the recycling bins at the  present dump site, with an  attendant (hopefully), is a serious consideration also as the  area goes through a process of  change with the present Klein-  dale/Garden Bay landfill  garbage site. The regional board  would like to see the site turned  into a transfer station (garbage  being shipped to the Sechelt  landfill/dump site) as certain  environmental hazards have  been noted by regional board  director Jim Gurney. A move  towards improvement/change  with the Area A dump scene is  close at hand, this coming winter as word has it. So there are  some important decisions for  the community to think about.  The issue of garbage recycling  in our community won't go  away and needs to be addressed  as soon as possible.  Final words before closing:  GRIP held a survey a number of  months ago concerning garbage  disposal/recycling within our  region. Out of 184 concerned  folk who answered questions  about recycling in Pender Harbour, 183 people were in favour  of recycling here. Currently  85.3 per cent of them surveyed  said they recycle and many  mentioned they would like the  depot site to be in Madeira Park  (although this is not possible at  present).  :xtj  EXTRA/ EXTRA.'  Recycling, it's as easy  as that.

Logie  unveils  works  Back in the late 1970s, aitisl  Patricia Logie first became  interested in painting portraits  of Native people when she hired  several Native students from  UBC to sit as models for her.  "These students were wonderful to paint,'' she said. "Their  high cheekbones and strong features were of great interest to  me as a painter, and their personalities, inner strength and  determination added more  colour to the paintings."  When she started thinking  about other depictions of First  People, however, Logie realized  most illustrations she knew  were either of warrior figures or  'underprivileged, woebegone  figures of a dying race.'  "Where were the Native people 1 knew? Nowhere in my  search could I find the people of  this generation who are working  and striving to help the image of  their people through involvement in education, in the artistic  community, in politics, in business, in law, and in the general  struggle to keep the Indian culture alive and of consequence."  Logie decided then to try to  depict in her own paintings the  impressive achievements of a  large but sometimes unknown  group of First Nations people.  Her book, Chronicles of  Pride, is a collection of 31 portraits of Native people wfio  have made significant contributions to our society. Her powerful yet sensitive paintings  portray well-known natives  such as artist Daphne Odjig,  actress Margo Kane, Judge  Alfred Scow, Senator Len  Marchand, businesswoman  Blanche Macdonald and Chief  Simon Baker. Lesser knowin  subjects are teacher Yvlotwe  Dunlop, United Church ministet  John Williams, social worker  Glen Newman, politician  George Manuel and others  whose lives are enriching the  fabric of contemporaryrsociety.  Logie, who has been an  established portrait painter for  the last 30 years, recently  moved to the ^unshine Coast. ,  She will be exhibiting some  of her paintings and signing hex,  books at the Shadow Baux  Gallery in Sechelt on December  7 and 8 from Ham to 4pm.

Powder Blues: Doin' it right  in the best seats in town.  by Stuart lurtwMt  Sechelt's Raven's Cry Theatre rocked November 23 as the Powder Blues played their own brand  of upbeat blues to an almost sold-out crowd of  enthusiastic fans.  The Powder Blues, a bar band that has managed  to make good with original hits and by maniacally  touring North America, proved to those gathered at  the Raven's Cry why they deserve the appreciation  of their fans and hold the respect of their peers.  The selections played were an anthology of  hits from the past 14 years of the band's existence, including such greats as Thirsty Ears and  Doin* It Right on the Wrong Side of Town.  They even rendered a couple of requests called  out from the audience.  The band played with all the verve and professionalism people have come to expect from  the Powder Blues and a style which included  duelling saxophones, moody guitar riffs, the  occasional drum solo and raucous keyboard playing, while the bass guitar kept it all in time.  Unfortunately, there was a down side to the  evening and it involved1 the location of the show  rather than any discrepancies on the part of the  band.  The Powder Blues is a bar band, and their  music belongs in smokey dives and dance halls  where the beer flows freely and no one is asked  to remain seated. The Raven's Cry is no such  place.  The Raven's Cry is a beautiful theatre, the  classiest on the Coast. The seating is wonderfully  comfortable and the decor is tasteful and not  overstated; the atmosphere would be relaxing for  a crowd gathered to watch a movie or an arts  council show, but not to witness the Powder  Blues.  By their very nature, the band demands audience participation and interaction; they feed off  the energy of the audience and get progressively  better as their fans pick up speed.  At the Raven's Cry last week the audience  was reluctant to participate. No beer was served,  no smoking was allowed, and there was no room  to dance. Half-hearted whistles were heard and  there was respectful applause after every song,  but the atmosphere just wasn't there.  The band knew it and the crowd felt it. It  didn't stop them from giving a fine performance,  but the show probably would have been more  enjoyable had it been held at the Roberts Creek  Community Hall or the Indian Band Hall - anywhere a crowd can get up and move.

Karen Butchart has spent  most of her summers in Gibsons, painting. Some of the  works to be exhibited in the  Wilson Creek Gallery are  inspired by Gibsons.  Recently Karen Butchart his  been an artist in residence for  the Artseed program at New  Westminster High School, and  has been holding drawing workshops for intermediate children  at the Surrey Art Gallery.  Butchart's work has been used  in a movie recently filmed in  Vancouver, and featured in various art magazine publications:  L'estrie, Art Magazine, Le Col-  lectioneur. Her paintings are  also part of the collections of  Sherbrook Art Museum,  Chevron Oil Company, and private and corporate collections  throughout Canada and,the  United States.  "I aim to portray the joy of  life at home with my family,"  says Butchart. "My immediate  surroundings are my inspiration  and subject matter. British  Columbia scenery - our mountains and seas, our greenery and  flowers influence my works."  An afternoon tea with the  utist in attendance will be held  at the gallery on Sunday Dec.

A multi-award  winning film, this has been  called one of the best films ever  from Spain.  A powerful and poignant  story about Spain's spiritual  state after the Franco rebellion,  'Spirit of the Beehive' reveals  the world of tiny Ana Torrent,  whose father keeps bees, and  whose family is all affected by  the war in varied and personal  ways. Ana's performance is  understated and utterly charming, and the photography is  spartan and sublime. The patterns and pacing of this film  will entrance you! Tickets are  $4 at the door.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY  With love from your siblings  & their spouses & their kids  & Mom & Riley  Katherine Denham displays some of the graceful form  she will bring to her new appointment as an  instructor with the Coast Academy of Dance and Fine  Arts.  Coast Academy  appoints teacher  The Coast Academy of Dance and Fine Arts is pleased to  announce the appointment of Miss Katherine Denham as Assistant  Dance Teacher. Miss Denham, a local resident, complements the  present Academy team with her outstanding talents and professional standards.  Born in Toronto, Ontario in 1973, Katherine moved with her  family to Sechelt at the age of four. It was at this time that she  started gymnastics, and a year later began taking classes in ballet  and jazz. An active, athletic individual, Katherine participated in  fitness classes from the age of six and took contemporary dance  classes in her teens. She began her dance training at the Coast  Academy of Dance in September of 1990 and has progressed at a  dramatic rate under the watchful eye of Academy Director Nicola  Ruimy.  With her natural dance abilities, and responsible, dedicated attitude, it soon became apparent that Katherine possessed the rare  qualities and basic requirements of a good dance teacher. Since  dien, Katherine has been working towards that goal, attending a  teacher training program designed specifically for her by director  Nicola Ruimy. Included in this private dance training are Royal  Academy of Dancing syllabus studies, class planning and lessons  in teaching theory, as well as instruction on how to work successfully with children of all ages. Observation of classes taught by  other Academy instructors is also a weekly ritual for Katherine,  who now teaches her own classes at least once a week.  Her teaching success is evident on the faces of the young students when they ask when "Miss Katherine is teaching again?"  The talent in the Denham family is not limited to Katherine  though. Her younger sister, Alison, passed the Royal Academy of  Dancing grade three ballet examination earlier this year, with honours. It is important that we are all aware of the considerable talent  that is developing on the Sunshine Coast and that we continue to  recognize, nurture and support it.

Prior to white settlement  it was a berry-picking area for  the Secheh band. Around 1890,  Thomas William Roberts and  several other men preempted. A  son, Harry Roberts, became  well known locally for his boat,  the Chack Chack, and for  columns he wrote under this  pen name.  Undoubtedly Roberts  Creek's most illustrious resident  was the author, Hubert Evans.  The home he built for his family  in the 1920's still stands on the  beach south of the village centre. Hubert, a remarkably gracious and kindly man, is best  known for his novel Mist on the  River. Another novel, 0 Time  in Your Flight, he authored  when in his 90th year. He also  took up poetry in these latter  years and his collection Mostly  Coast People bears tribute to his  spirit and wiadom. Hubert  Evans passed away in 1986 but  he will not be forgotten.  Brother Twelve  In Roberts Creek  A little-known story that  Hubert once told me concerns  the cultist Brother Twelve and  his mistress, Madam Zee, who  ran a notorious commune on the  De Courcy Islands off  Nanaimo. In 1933, Twelve's ill-  used followers revolted, trooped  into Nanaimo and laid a battery  of criminal charges against their  leader. Twelve and Zee, after  trashing the commune, escaped  by boat to Roberts Creek with  40 boxes of gold coins. There  they were hidden for six months  by a still-loyal follower, on a  piece of property above the present highway. When the initial  uproar had subsided, they sailed  up coast to Prince Rupert,  boarded a train and escaped to  Europe by way of Montreal.  They were never apprehended.  Until ten months ago, an historic log cabin called the Homestead stood on the upper side of  the highway at Wilson Creek.  Once die home of an early pioneer, it served in latter years as  a second-hand store. In late January of this year, it was dismantled by the Qibsons Landing  Historical Society and stored in  Roberts Creek to make way for  a new mall. It will be reassembled elsewhere when a suitable  site can be found.  tfATWWSJ  Fine Art  rosters&  Calendars  ��� Images for all  tastes and places.  ���OVER 400  images in stock.  ���OVER 3000  catalogued.

Our competitive edge will  secure the prosperity we want for  ourselves and our children. Prosperity thaf s measured not only by productivity but by better jobs, greater  opportunities for young Canadians,  support for health, social and senior  citizen programs - and more.  We can achieve it by investing in  our own abilities and being a country  that says... yes we can.  Yes we can.  Wve got the proof.  Yes we can.  Wve got the ability to  build on our successes.  We have a history of working in  co-operation with others for world  class achievements in peacekeeping,  medicine and space exploration.  Now, with business, labour, governments, academic and social groups  working together, we can achieve  prosperity through international  competitiveness. But there is one  mote critical factor Canada's ultimate potential depends on the commitment of individual Canadians.  Yes we can.  Wve got the people.  A look at some of Canada's success  stories proves it can be done... with  real benefits for individuals, the  communities they live in and for  Canadian industry.  Hundreds of Canadian companies  are achieving remarkable international success. They're creating jobs,  developing new skills and opportunities for thousands of Canadians and  creating markets around the world  for Canadian products.  If s time now to unite around our  greatest economic challenge yet-  preparing for a prosperous future.  As individuals, there's a lot we can  do. Put yourself in the picture  through further education or skills  development programs.  As parents, we can encourage our  children to stay in school longer and  start career planning activities sooner.  As employers, we can think of  training as a business investment and  encourage a work environment  where excellence and a commitment  to learning are celebrated. Finally, as  Canadians, we can become a positive  part of the process through involvement in the consultations on our  economic future.  h ',���  colour coordinated, fragrant  Gift Baskets  for men and women  fancy soaps, bubble bath, shower  soap, shaving cream, sponges  VARIETY ffi, FOODS  The BIGGEST Little Store in Gibsons Landing 886-2936  from $14.25  Burning Permits Still Required  ��� IK WIT 11M��� HKW��ICTMIBafCT.(1IW)  All class "A" industrial/land clearing type fires still require  a burning permit.

Peanuts - On November 23  an excited group of tykes took  their fust road trip and opened  the new season with a very  exciting hockey game in Powell  River. This was the first real  game for many of these youngsters, and they showed that  playing and having fun is what  is most important. They were  pitted against a more experienced team, but they never  stopped having fun or enjoying  the thrill of playing hockey.  When the lone goal for our team  was scored from a great set-up  by Travis Welda to the stick of  Brandon Bye who popped it in  the net, the crowd and team  went wild.  On the weekend of November 23/24 a coaches' clinic was  held wih Brent Berry from  UBC. Enjoying the sport and  developing young minds were  the main topic. The coaches  who attended left the clinic with  a renewed sense of direction,  realizing scores don't make  winners or losers. That's important.

Until the recent yeans of  competitive curling and the big  money games, the sport had  decidedly few rules. The rules  have increased due to a  decrease in friendly sportsmanship and the desire to win the  big prizes that are often at stake  in modem competition. These  days, big games are always  adjudicated by an umpire and  referee.  In a small club like ours,  friendly sportsmanlike games  are usual and strict adherence to  the rules is often ignored. One  of the most flagrant violations  of the rules in a club game is the  one about only skips and vice-  skips standing in or behind the  house. The proper place for  those players other than skip or  third is along the sides of the  rink between the hoglines  unless they are delivering or  sweeping a stone. Violating this  rule can often distract the player  who is delivering a stone.  Another rule that is often  violated is the sweeping rule  that states a rock must be swept  the last week's Men's Bonspiel  full across the face of the stone.  This rule is designed to prevent  debris being swept under a  stone to slow it down if it is  running too fast. Behind the tee  line, no player shall start to  sweep a stone until it reaches  the nearer tee line. Starting to  sweep before the rock reaches  the near tee line is commonly  called warming the ice and this  is another forbidden act.  Touching a running stone  with the broom is also not  allowed. Normally such a stone  should be removed from play.  The old rule used to require  such a rock be immediately  removed the moment it was  burned (touched), but some  innovative players who could  see that a stone was going to do  damage to their rocks or their  stone positions in the house  deliberately started to burn a  running stone. To prevent this, a  new rule was introduced to the  game. This rule states the  opposing skip gets to determine  if a burned stone should be  removed or allowed to finish its  motion to the end of its course.  We are still looking for a few  curlers. There is space for several mixed teams on Thursday  night and we have room for  more curlers in the Tuesday  night men's league. If you are  interested, come up to the rink  on one of those nights and we  will find a team for you. We are  always interested in new curlers  and new friends.  Each Monday night, John  intends to burn the ice so we  have a keen, clean, level surface  to play on. If you have time on  Monday evenings, John would  be very appreciative of your  help.

The Christmas Break (mid-  season layoff) has arrived for  the local rugby lads. The last  game of the first half took place  on Nov. 16 at home vs the exb-  Lions. Coming off two good  wins in the previous weeks, the  pigs were looking to end the  half above .500. But this was  not to be. Close but no cigar!  Out early in the day, the lining crew busied themselves trying to put the beauty marks  down on the pitch But1 fat  Chance that day. The torrential  downpour left the. field looking  like it could have been the pool  extension the town is hoping  for. Lines floated away as fast  as they poured out of the liner.  It was evident that if the game  were to go ahead, markings  would not play a factor. Good  Luck Ref.  Showing up off the 9:30  boat, the opposition was  psyched and ready. This was a  day rugby lore is made of.  Canada's Largest winger "the  Wadd" was eager as a pig in  mud to venture out into the  muck and mire. So eager, in  fact, that he had to go home and  change his soaked attire for  something drier to start the  adventure.  The referee showed up and  away they went, on the field  which was slightly better by  game time. Splish and Splash,  eek and aak, there were some  mighty frigid bodies right from  the start. As it turned out, both  sides handled the treacherous  conditions amiably and it was  an okay display of rugby football. Sure there were some  dropped balls and missed  responsibilities, but heck, who  wouldn't in those conditions?  The locals tried in vain to stop  the more technically in-tune  pack of the exb-Lions, but to no  avail. The final score was a  respectable exb-Lions 14 - Pigs  6.  litis now completes eleven  weeks of rugby for the third di v.  of the VRU.

With only three  wins last year in total, this first  half of the 20th anniversary season has created much excitement among the players and  throughout the club.

Santa  and his  reindeer  arrived  early this year  Santa Arrives With  Light Show  Santa and his reindeer came  early this year! Tuesday Nov.  IQ became a historic date for  the Gibsons rudby and athletic  club. Having spent most of  Monday (in the sunshine, thank  God!) stringing the wires to  connect the twelve 1000-watt  practise lights, it came time the  next day to fanally flip the  switch.  Wow! What a feeling! If any  of you have been to Swanguard  Stadium, you'll know what we  got. It really is just fantastic.  Bring out your newspapers and  easy boys. It's just like being in  your front room.  This is a major turning point  in club history. Instead of having to book gym space or burn  the car headlights, we can now  frolic in all kinds of weather,  and enjoy more positive practise  time, on a par with all the big  clubs in town.  The dream has finally come  true. At this time, thanks are in  order.  The help and expertise of all  involved was immeasurable.  Right from the start (which was  delayed only a few years) it  truly showed small town grit  and determination. Thanks go  out to: Howe Sound Pulp and  Paper - donation of pole; Nick  Bergnach - digging of holes;  school district #46 - supply of  power; John Envoldson Welding - manufacture of metal light  standards and braces; Gibsons  Fasteners - for being at work .  late one evening; South Memo- '  rial Sports Association - donation of lights.  The biggest and warmest  thanks go to the four men who  percevered with me. Without  their help it would probably  never have become a reality:  Garry Mundell - Garry's Crane:  erecting the poles, assistance  with man-basket and general  top-notch operating; Tom Morrison and Gord Currie - Morrison Electric: Smoothing the  way with hydro, configuration  and installation or wiring and  power! And last but not least,  my comrade in lightness: Wally  Dempster - for the connection  for cash and equipment, and  desire to see our town upgrade  the sports facilities. (Yep Laurie  he can retire now).  Also I would like to thank all  the volunteers who pitched in  their time and effort to create  this magnificent happening.  Bravo!! You have made me one  tremendously proud and happy  rugby player. Cheers and yum  sing!  On to the future we go.  Here's to you; you're true blue,  pigs, through and through!  Oink! Oink!

Over 12,400 of a possible 28,000 Coho died as a  result of the storm two weeks ago, according to one of those responsible for the hatchery, John Field.  "The creek (that the hatchery is on) went on a rampage coming  down from the Caren Range," Field told the Coast News, "and it  brought a lot of silt with it." Last week's storm was responsible for  the flooding.  Field said the silt plugged the water intake for the hatchery's two  holding tanks and the salmon died of oxygen starvation.  Fields said much of the silt brought by the flooding creek came  from a clearcut section of land above the hatchery and from a silt  pond installed by the Ministry of Forests after the last killer flood in  February.  "(That settling pond) was supposed to catch any debris that came  down," Fields said. "They put big berms around it."  He said those  berms now made up a large portion of the silt contained in the creek.  "The creek is much wider now," Fields noted.  He said the remaining Coho, which were due to be released this  fall, were released the same night the others had suffocated.  "We were waiting to tag them," Field said of the plans for the  salmon before the flood, "...so we could estimate our contribution to  the overall catch after they were released."  He said the surviving, untagged Coho were released to Pender  Harbour's Mixal Lake, the body of water they were taken from as  eggs.  "We started out with 60,000 to 70,000 eggs," field recalled, "and  lost half of those in February during the fust flood. Now we've lost  half again...It was most unfortunate."  Field said there is already a new batch of eggs at the Lions Park  Hatchery, but the problem of flooding remains. "I don't know if  there is a solution at this point," Field said. "When the water is that  full of silt, there's not much you can do."  SYLVIA  IflBMMU&lfcfiftAlfjtaP/-"���"���   ������ "  1    ^'TltJtt,    '  ^'.v-ttpmn  Mi}.

At a Sechelt council meeting  Nov. 20, Mayor Nancy MacLarty received approval in principal  to look into the proposal.  MacLarty said she had  already discussed the idea with  federal MP Ray Skelly. She also  plans to talk to the Regional  District and the Sechelt Indian  Band about the park.  A marine park in Sechelt  would be good for tourism in  Sechelt, MacLarty said, and  would create an ecological  attraction supported by federal  government programs and  advertising.  If the marine park gets eventual approval, it is not likely to  go ahead for three or four years,  said MacLarty. "This is just a  fust step."  Resident, regional district  argue garbage collection  A Coast resident angry about the SCRD's  garbage collection policies tried for a second  time to get satisfaction from the SCRD at the  Nov 28 directors' meeting, but was told by  SCRD Chairman Peggy Connor he had "already  had his day in court."  Resident Robert Rodvik attended the meeting  demanding further explanation from the SCRD  about the refusal of regional garbage collectors  to empty cans larger than 16 gallons.  Rodvick brought his full 22 gallon container  to a Nov 14 SCRD meeting to demonstrate how  light it was, and claimed it was "only common  sense for the garbage men to empty it because it  (wasn't) that heavy".  At that meeting Rodvick was told by SCRD  Chairman Peggy Connor that the Workers'  Compensation Board (WCB) wouldn't allow  garbage collectors to lift "oversized containers "  and that he had to buy a new one of proper size.  At the Nov 28 meeting Rodvick said he had  checked with the WCB and found out they don't  regulate the size of containers other than to let  garbage collectors decide what is too heavy for  Ihem to lift.  He claimed the decision not to empty contain  ers over 16 gallons stemmed from the SCRD collection by-law, which stipulates containers "be  of standard size."  Rodvick said the standard size indicated in the  by-law is "approximately 16 x 22".  "There is nothing to indicate whether (16 x 22  stands for) feet, metres, inches, gallons, whatever," Rodvick said. He also asked what "approximately" meant.  Rather than answering the question directly,  Director Jim Gurney said the easiest way to rectify the situation was to amend the collection bylaw and establish specific sizes for garbage  containers.  "We need to update the by-law," Gumey said,  "to metrify it." Gurney motioned the collection  by-law be changed to place the size restriction  for containers at 77 litres (about 17 gallons).  Gumey's motion passed unanimously.  Rodvick said the container limitation  wouldn't accommodate the elderly or disabled,  many of whom use 33 gallon cans because they  can be bought with wheels attached and are easy  to transport.  Gurney admitted it would be a problem for  those using the 33 gallon containers but said cans  that size were the hardest for garbage collectors  to empty.

Recycling aluminum saves 95% of the energy used to make  items from new material. This means that your can  manufacture 20 cans ol recycled aluminum with the same  amount of energy required to make one can from new material.  Not only cans but aluminum foil, pie plates, TV diner plates,  and larger pieces such as screen doors and lawn furniture  frames are recyclable. Ensure that what you are bringing In Is  100$ aluminum; if not (ie: lawn furniture may have steel rivets,  ask the Depot attendant whether the item is acceptable.

O  One report had it as the best  opening in Woolworth's history, but manager Ian Webber is a  cautious man with a more modest assessment of the highly  successful grand opening of one  of Canada's oldest chain stores'  in Gibsons earlier this month.  "It was," said Webber, "definitely the best opening in Canada this year."  Five new Woolworth's  stores have appeared in Canada  this year. There was a new one  opened in Placentia, Nfld.; a  second in Elmsdale, N.S.; two  in Ontario, in Perth and Drys-  dale; and the Gibsons store.  An estimated 450-500 people were standing in line waiting for Mayor Eric Small to  officiate at the official ribbon-  cutting.  The store has 17,000 square  feet and has twenty-two  employees -almost all of them  hired locally. It is one of  approximately 13S stores in the  country.  The first Woolworth's store  in British Columbia was opened  in Vancouver in 1906, the second in Nanaimo in 1915.  For manager Ian Webber, the  opening marks his sixth store in  six years, his second as manager. Joining Webber from the  Woolco store in Burnaby is  Asst.

Webber himself is a native  of Calgary, Alta. who moved to  B.C. in 1963. Before joining the  national Woolworth's team, the  newest Sunshine Coast business  executive had a varied employment background which included logging and cattle-ranching  in the Williams Lake area of the  province.  VeHHd*���**  He met his wife Natalie in  Terrace where they were both  part of the Woolworth's sales  force. The couple has one  daughter, Amanda Marion.  They have bought a house on  O'Shea Road in Gibsons and  hope to be here for from three  to five yeats.  Questioned by the Coast  News, Webber acknowledged  that business has been good  since the store opening.  "We are getting a good  response from the customers,"  said the manager.  The arrival of this prestigious and venerable chain onto  the Sunshine Coast is undoubtedly an evidence of the growth  of the business community and  speaks well about the long term  economic prospects of this area.

IS  part three  Bf PlSSf IrBWSf  Several miles up the coast from  Gibsons lies the unincorporated village  of Roberts Creek. Prior to white settlement it was s berry-picking area for  the Sechelt band. Around 1890,  Thomas William Roberts and several  other men preempted. A son, Harry  Roberts, became well known locally  for his boat, the Chack Chack, and for  columns he wrote under this pen name.  Undoubtedly Roberts Creek's most  illustrious resident was the author,  Hubert Evans. The home he built for  his family in the 1920's still stands on  the beach south of the village centre.  Hubert, a remarkably gracious and  kindly man, is best known for his  novel Mist on the River. Another  novel, O Time in Your Flight, he  authored when in his 90th year. He  also took up poetry in these Utter years  snd his collection Mostly Coast People  bears tribute to his spirit and wisdom.  Hubert Evans passed away in 1986 but  he will not be forgotten.  A little-known story that Hubert  once told me concerns the cultist  Brother Twelve and his mistress,  Madam Zee, who ran a notorious commune on the De Courcy Islands off  Nanaimo. In 1933, Twelve's ill-used  followers revolted, trooped into  Nanaimo and laid a battery of criminal  charges against their leader. Twelve  and Zee, after trashing the commune,  escaped by boat to Roberts Creek with  40 boxes of gold coins. There they  were hidden for six months by a still-  loyal follower, on a piece of property  above the present highway. When the  initial uproar had subsided, they sailed  up coast to Prince Rupert, boarded a  train and escaped to Europe by way of  Montreal. They were never apprehended.  Until ten months ago, an historic  log cabin called the Homestead stood  on the upper side of the highway at  Wilson Creek. Once the home of an  early pioneer, it served in latter years  as a second-hand store. In late January  of this year, it was dismantled by the  Qibsons Landing Historical Society  and stored in Roberts Creek to make  way for a new mall. It will be reassembled elsewhere when a suitable site can  be found.  40-seat licensed restaurant In  mal, by owner. 886-2223.   149  DRYWALL RENOVATIONS  Large or small prolessional finishing.

But the dangers of hypothermia, thin ice, car failure and icy cold water can easily lead to tragedy if preventative measures aren't taken.  Hypothermia is one of the leading causes of winter tragedy in BC and the  Yukon. "Lack of experience and preparation can turn a winter outing into a dangerous situation," warns Steve Borthwick, Chairman of the Red Cross's Water Safety  Committee.  "Listen to weather reports and plan on the worst conditions possible," cautions  Borthwick. Preventive action is your greatest defence in any outdoor activity.  No one plans on their car breaking down, leaving them stranded and susceptible  to hypothermia, but it happens. Make sure you tell someone where you are going  snd when you expect to return. Always carry extra layers of clothing and a wool  blanket in your car. In the event of car failure, if you are miles from the nearest  phone, remain in your car, conserve body heat and wait for help.  Likewise, if you discover a stranded motorist, check for signs of shivering,  slurred speech snd poor coordination. If these systems are present, get the victim to  s warm place immediately. Apply moderate heat to the head, neck and trunk and  provide a warm non-alcoholic drink. Do not tub the skin as it draws blood away  from the body core where it is most needed.  In severe esses, where the victim displays slow breathing and appears rigid,  huddle with the victim under blankets or in a sleeping bag. Direct body contact is  best, skin to skin, especially to the chest and neck. Seek medical help immediately.  Taking time to think and plan ahead will allow you to enjoy BC's beautiful outdoors this winter and help avoid emergency.  Tuesday  Dec 3,1991  7:00 p.m.  E.S.P. T.V.

CoastNeivs Ckssi  886-2622  885-3930 22  Coast News, December 2,1991  Sechelt public hearing adjourned;  business owner protests area plan  A public hearing on  Sechelt's new plan for development permit areas was  adjourned amid confusion on  Nov. 20, after a move to go  ahead with the bylaws was  vigourously protested by the  owners of Tideline Logging snd  Marine.  The bylaws under discussion  involved Sechelt council's plan  to establish aesthetic guidelines  for new buildings being constructed in two areas of S -chelt.  The first area, the "downtown central business district",  includes areas of professional  office and residential space and  includes parts of Cowrie, Teredo and Dolphin streets as well  as parts of Inlet snd Whsrf  svenues. The second area,  meant to include areas of "service trades" and "small industry", includes a zone just south  of Sechelt Inlet.  Establishing special development permit areas would allow  council control over some  aspects of building design and  materials, landscaping, lighting  and similar details in new buildings costing over $30,000 in the  areas.  Rob Sabine, Sechelt planner,  told the hearing the permit areas  were meant to ensure a unified  and aesthetically pleasing character would exist in various  parts of Sechelt.  'You don't need a  bunch of shrubs  and cedar trees  around a chain  link fence.'  But at least two owners of s  business which would fall into  the new areas registered strong  disapproval of the plan.  Dorhn and Rose Bosch of  Tideline Logging and Marine  on Wharf Avenue, whose property falls into both of the proposed development areas,  accused council of trying to turn  required fat their structure. During the discussion, the issues of  zoning (which regulates allowable uses of buildings), building  permits (which govern physical  building requirements and engineering), and the proposed  development permit sreas  (which would regulate aesthetics of buildings and property in  certain areas) became hopelessly confused.  Eventually, council decided  to adjourn the hearing, following recommendations by both  Alderman Bob Wilson and  Aid man Doug Reid that council should avoid even the  appearance of railroading.  The public hearing was  adjourned until Dec. 4 at 7 pm.

Dorhn Bosch asked council.  "You don't need a bunch of  shrubs and cedar trees around a  chain link fence in a working  area."  Bosch slso told council if  they put aesthetic restrictions on  all industrial areas where business could operate, "there isn't  going to be any business".  In particular, Bosch objected  to the ides that a portable Lin-  dome storsge structure on his  property, which Bosch erected  without a building permit,  would not be allowed if the  bylaws went ahead.  Rob Sabine, Sechelt planner,  said the development permit  area guidelines would apply to  any building, whether permanent or temporary, constructed  for over $50,000.  Asked by Adrian Hovestad,  another member of the public, if  the chances of the Boschs having the Lindome structure  approved would be less after the  bylaw went through, planner  Rob Sabine replied, "It will be  lero."  A lengthy discussion followed, during which the Boschs  accused Sabine of misleading  them about building permits  a  .Hi  ffi  I  >!
