JotlJohrutoiK photo  Scramble to save trees  Gibsons Council called a  special meeting on May 2,  cancelled that meeting, then  called Iwo more special meetings for May 3 and 6, all in  order to prevent the logging of  Block 7, part of the Gospel  Rock development.  In explaining the flurry of activity Gibsons Mayor Eric Small  said, "Because of information  that had come to my atlention,  and the fact that Mr. Killam  (the owner) was actually clearing on the property, the faci  that he had informed us he intended to challenge our iree cutting bylaw, we decided we needed to take some action."  Because it takes a delay of  one full day between first, second and third reading of a  bylaw and final adoption, he  said, "We did not want lo give  Mr. Killam the opportunity lo  cut down the trees during that  day."  The bylaw extended the 'tree  cutting permit area' lo Ihe entire  Block 7. The existing bylaw pro-  hibiled any logging on Ihe lower  area, while Ihe new bylaw requires any logging on the upper  area be done by permit which,  Mayor Small said, would only  be issued once council has approved a development plan.  In commenting on rumours  thai some of (he area was lo be  clearcut, contractor Cam Mackenzie told the Coast News on  May 1 that he had no such instructions. In fact, he said, he  had been told to take out brush  and alder but be careful of any  arbutus trees. He added that  there was less clearing happening on Blocks 6 and 7 than he  has done on his own property  and many others in the area.  Meanwhile Killam's lawyer,  Michael Welsh of Sechelt, filed  a petition on his client's behalf  lo the Supreme Court of British  Columbia. This action was  taken on May 7.  Killam's Valentine Land Corporation (Sechelt) is seeking an  order striking down Gibsons'  Tree Cutting Bylaws 600 (the  Official Community Plan), 609  (1989), and 623 (1990) on the  grounds lhal they are "patently  unreasonable" and were  enacted in "bad faith". The  petition was brought in accordance with ihe Judicial Review  Procedure Act.  by Jan Michael Sherman  Beleaguered on all sides, fast  ferry operator Stewart Vinnels  has appealed to Victoria for an  extension on his contractual  deadline to provide service between Vancouver, Bowen Island,  and Gibsons. A spokesperson  for ihe Ministry of Transportation and Highways could not  specify precisely how long an  extension Vinnels was requesting, but did note "The  original contract date (to provide service) was sometime in  May."  In a surprise move which  came hard on the heels of  Liberal Leader Gordon  Wilson's demand for an inquiry  inlo the entire fast ferry situation, Premier Rita Johnston  "made it known lasl Wednesday  that she was prepared to turn  the much-delayed service over  to BC Ferries should Island  Development Group (which  Vinnels heads) fail to meet  unspecified "operating  criteria."  Johnston's announcement  came as a surprise lo many,  given that when, as Transportation and Highways Minister in  late 1990, she gave strong  assurances that her proposed  fast ferry plan would be strictly  a private sector venture. In the  contract for service struck wilh  Vinnels' Island Development  Group, the Vander Zalm gov  ernment pledged not to operate  any competing service on the  agreed upon route for five  years.  Vinnels was one of five bidders for the contract, but the  other four have never been  revealed publicly. Vinnels' last  ferry venture (between Victoria  and Seattle) sank to the tune of  $35 million.  Stewart  Vinnels  (left) of  Island  Development  Group.  Asked why Vinnels' bid was  deemed to be the strongest,  Ministry of Transportation and  Highways Manager of Communications Betty Nicholson said  she was "not in a position to  comment on why", but went on  lo say that submissions (for the  contract) "were based on a  number of criteria." She did  confirm that the contract between the government and Island  Development Group "is still in  place."  Lasl week Vinnels admitted  running into problems with the  Bowen Island link in his three-  way ferry terminal chain, in the  form of possible public hear  ings. But the Victoria dentist  claimed that aside from a  month's delay, everything else  was on track.  In Gibsons, however, a  curious situation has developed  involving Vinnels' plans for acquiring a landing site for his  ferry. According to Bruce Gravel, operator of Hyack Marine  Service, Vinnels had agreed to  purchase the property, with the  date of April IS having been set  for consummation of the transaction. The deadline passed  with no payment made by Vinnels, nor has the ferry operator  contacted Gravel since then.  "As far as I'm concerned",  Gravel said, "We're back to  square one."  Last week, however, Vinnels  told the Vancouver Sun that he  had landing rights for two sites  in Gibsons. The Coast News attempted to confirm this with  Vinnels, but calls to him were  not returned. Gibsons Mayor  Eric Small said, "I'm just  guessing...but he might have  been referring to the Government Wharf." Small went on to  say that "I've spoken to the  Coast Guard and they have not  been contacted by Mr. Vinnels.  There is nowhere else which  comes to mind that would be  adequate (for landing  purposes)."  Small said that Premier  Johnston's announcement came  as a "total surprise", agreeing  that should BC Ferries take over  the fast ferry service, such a  move would "change the complexion" of things. Having the  fast ferry operate out of  Langdale would be "the best  place for it," Small observed,  adding "BC Ferries would offer  more reliable service...(meaning  that) I have some concerns  aboul Vinnels' (plan)."  Small pointed oul that with  no backup vessel, service would  be interrupted should anything  untoward occur with Vinnels'  solo ferry.  Vinnels has previously revealed that his company has acquired a 352-passenger catamaran from a boat builder in  Norway. But once transported  lo Vancouver, the vessel musl  undergo sea trials and certification, a process conducted by the  Coasl Guard's Ship Safety division. This process could take up  lo six months to complete.  Grad ceremonies barred from Rockwood  by Stuart Burnside  Sechelt Council has denied  ���through a Ihree to two  vote���a request from Chatelech  Secondary School to have the  school's graduation ceremonies  held at Rockwood Pavilion  June 26.  At a special council meeting  May 8, Mayor Nancy MacLarty  brought to the fore a letter  received from Chatelech Secondary requesting that graduation  ceremonies be held at Rockwood rather than the school  gymnasium, as is the usual procedure.  Council had just begun to  discuss Ihe request, with  MacLarty saying the graduation  activities would be limited lo  between 5 and 10 pm on the  25th and would "be for their  graduation ceremonies only  (not the festivities to follow),"  when Sechelt Resident Billie  Steele entered the meeting  room.  Steele, a neighbour of the  Rockwood Centre, voiced concerns about allowing the use of  the pavilion���for any kind of  large gathering���in a month  other than those agreed to by  council when the pavilion was  built, July or August.  Steele has, when non-conforming events have taken place  in the past, written letters to  council imploring them not lo  allow the pavilion's use. Her  lasl objection stemmed from the  Earth Day events in April when,  prior to council's knowledge oi  consent, activities were planned  for the pavilion and then advertised widely.  "The biggest problem ai the  pavilion is parking," Steele lold  council, "as you know very  well, there isn't any, and that  building is supposed to seal 5(X)  people."  MacLarty lold Steele lhat, ai  a recent meeting with "the  Rockwood people and the Festival of the Written Arts people  (the group responsible for the  pavilion) she had been given  assurances that every effort was  being made to ensure that, for  the graduation ceremonies and  probably the whole summer,  parking would be available al  Chatelech Secondary. Steele  didn't find the solution feasible.  "You're dreaming if you  think all those people are going  to park up there and walk down  to Rockwood," she said.  "1 don't understand why the  Festival people aren't told they  can't use the pavilion other than  July or August," Steele wanted  to know, "why aren't they slopped?"  "We're working on thai  now," MacLarty informed her,  "...we're trying to come lo  some decision that will be good  for all concerned, bul it's going  to have to be a compromise.  You (Steele) are nol going lo be  completely satisfied, and neither  are they."  Steele said she believed, in effect, that the pavilion had been  rammed down the throats of  area residents in the first place.  "The whole place has been a  sham, right from the very beginning," she asserted, "The  Mayor (Meredith at thai lime)  Amidst con-  was up Ihere turning ihe sod  before the Ihing was approved,  the parking was lied aboul, and  it's been used for different  events���without approval  ���ever since."  "The problem we're facing  is," explained MacLarty, "the  pavilion was buill by the  Festival of the Written a\rts  specifically for their use and  now they are gelling a lol of requests for It's use from other  groups. So they are coming to  us (council) to decide what they  arc lo do."  MacLarty acknowledged that  council was in violation of il's  own parking by-law with the  pavilion, a sentiment echoed  then expanded on by Alderman  Bob Wilson. "We knew lhal  when we gave them the permission lo build," he said.  In a conversation with the  Coast News the following day,  MacLarty expressed discontent  with the decision not allowing  Chatelech to perform it's  ceremonies at the pavilion.  "One person (Billie Steele) is  holding up the community.  Maybe there is limited parking  around the pavilion, but the  building is there and people can  park at Chatelech."  Aldermen Wilson, Peggy  Wagner and Michael Shanks  voted against allowing the  Secondary School inlo the  pavilion June 26, while  Aldermen Joyce Kolibas and  Doug Reid voted in favour.  Alderman Art Whistler was absent and MacLarty didn't vole,  saying her voice would not have  made a difference.

Coast News, May 13,1991  Leacock  sun shines  on White's  'Rain'  by Jan Michael Sherman  "If you're on your toes as a  publisher," Howie While was  saying as rain beat down on his  Pender   Harbour  home  cum  I publishing company, "you keep  : track of all appropriate awards  ; and (literary) contests���to do  ; the best by your authors. It is in  ; an author's interest, as well, lo  I see lhal his or her work is sub-  ' mined for consideration."  The Coast News spoke lo  While two days after the self-  described   "writer,   publisher,  and   sometime   bulldozer  operator" became the 44th winner  of  the  annual   Stephen  Leacock Award for Humour, a  singular honour which puts him  in the same company with the  likes of Robertson Davies ('55),  Pierre Berton ('60), W.O. Mit  chell ('62), Farley Mowat ('70),  and W.P. Kinsella ('87).  Writing In The Rain, White's  collection of stories, poems and  essays which won him his  "Leacock", is a "mix of  pieces", most of which were  published elsewhere. "What  binds ihem together," White  said recently, "is thai they're all  aboul some aspect of the West  Coast. Some are historical,  some are more contemporary���accounts of experiences I've had...rushing to  calch a ferry in an old, rusty  Volvo (see accompanying excerpt), or driving a truckload of  rotten fish, or bulldozing garbage al the local dump."  White  and  wife  Mary,  a  mainstay of the family-run Har-  - Publishing (which publish-  ting in The Rain, not  .dentally), have been mar  ried for 16 years. They have two  sons, Silas (13) and Patrick(lO).  White is currently preparing to  publish a children's book titled  "Patrick and the Backhoe",  written by White and illustrated  by Bus Griffiths. "I also have a  book of poetry finished," the  author noted, "It's ready to  publish, something we'll probably do next year."  At 46, "Howie" White has  been writing for some 30 years,  a career which received a jump  start thanks to a contest as exciting to him then as being the  Leacock recipient is now.  "I first hit the 'bigtime ink' at  15," White grins, "when I won  Jack Scott's 'Column For A  Day' contest in the Vancouver  Sun. I even had things like  school sports and news reports  (from Pender Harbour Secondary) published in the Coasl  News."  Writing In The Rain is the  first book published in British  Columbia to be favoured with  the Leacock, and White is only  the fourth BC writer to receive  the award. He will fly east the  first week of June for a round  of media interviews, a trip  which will culminate in Stephen  Leacock's Ontario hometown  of Orillia on June 7 and 8.  White will be the guest of  honour at an award dinner  where he will receive the  Stephen Leacock Memorial  Medal and the J.P. Wiser Cash  ward ($3500).  White reiterated his surprise  upon receiving word of his  selection for the Leacock, a  reaction prompted by the fact  that the award is given for  "Humour".  "Only about 30 per cent of  my book could be described as  basically 'humourous' ", the  impish White explained, tongue  only slightly in cheek, "which is  why I discounted my chances.  In fact, they (sort of) rejected  my original submission. The  reason given was that they  weren't sure it qualified as  humour. It wasn't an official rejection, so 1 sent it in anyway.  When the nominations were announced, 1 was surprised���to  say the least���to find Writing In  The Rain included."  (When requested by the  Coast News to excerpt  something in a "humourous  vein" for inclusion with this  story, White suggested with a  twinkle, "I guess I'll have to  worry about being funny all the  time, now.")  It was noted that the author,  publisher, and bulldozer  operator would soon be standing for provincial office in his  capacity as the NDP candidate  for Powell River-Sunshine  Coast. Might his hat and time-  juggling be severely taxed, his  life more than a little  fragmented?  "I don't think being elected  would interfere with my  publishing or my writing,"  White responded in  characteristic sober, measured  cadence. "We're already in the  process of adding a senior  editor to the Harbour staff���to  pick up the slack after I phase  out."  White isn't particularly worried about being negatively affected by the rough and tumble,  often venal nature of the  political arena.  "Sure, politics changes you,"  he admitted, "but I'm not  afraid of changing. (Anyway,)  it doesn't have to be for the  Stephen Leacock Award winner, Howard While, at home in  Pender Harbour. Jan Michael Sherman pholo  worse. I'm looking forward to  getting some great stuff (for my  writing) out of my political  life."  Should the voters turn  Howard White the politician  loose on Victoria, Howie White  the writer will undoubtedly keep  Howard White the publisher  burning the midnight oil.  And given the political scene  in Victoria, Pender Harbour's  writer in the rain (and reigning  writer) might well win another  Leacock���this time for humour  and nothing else.  Expansion proceeds  despite protest  '     Gibsons council unanimously  ;! passed a resolution to proceed  I with the expansion of municipal  : boundaries in order to encom-  ; pass the site of the new Gibsons  J Park Plaza being buill at the  ��� corner of Payne  Road  and  ! Highway 101. The rriove was  ; made at a meeting, just 24 hours  after close to 100 people crowded into a public meeting, most  of them to protest the proposed  boundary expansion.  The turnout to the Monday  night meeting was unexpectedly  large, forcing council to move  the location from council chambers to the Marine Room. It  began with an opening statement by David Longpre from  Marcorp Development. He outlined, for council, the benefits  he foresaw accruing to the community from the inclusion of  the new mall into the tax base.  Among his projections were an  addition of 200 new jobs in the  community, more choices for  consumers thereby keeping  shopping revenues on the  Coast, and added commercial  space for new business entrepreneurs.  Following Marcorp's presentation, Mayor Small opened the  floor to the public. With the exception of Ian Mackenzie, who  felt that if the development provided a traffic light "...it will be  a blessing.", and Larry Koop,  contractor on the project,  everyone who spoke expressed  either concern or outright opposition.  Questions were raised regarding the drainage, sewage and  water systems. Frank May, of  Boultbee Realty which owns>  Sunnycrest Mall, gave an exten-'  sive presentation ol protest,  citing experts who have told him  the population can't support  more than about 150,000 sq. ft.  of shopping centre development. Fie went on to point out  that the Sunshine Coast has a  population of 18,000 to 20,000  and current shopping  developments take up over the  limit.  May protested, as he has in  the past, what he deems to be an  irregularity with the Gibsons  Plaza being built and brought  into the Town without proper  zoning procedures. Planner  Rob Buchan, however, told the  meeting that the property is currently under zoning of the Sunshine Coast Regional District  Marcorp  Development  Vice-President  David Longpre.  Joel Johnstone photo  which allows shopping centres.  Blane Hagedorn, of Super-  Valu, urged council to remember the construction and failure  of other malls in the area, adding that Sunnycrest is full for  the first time in 15 years.  Nadine Lowden of Linnadine's Shoes said she had  been approached four times by  Marcorp agents asking her to  move from Sunnycrest to the  new mall. She later commented  to the Coast News, "Playing  musical chairs with the  businesses in town doesn't do  anything for the economy."  Several other members of the  public questioned the validity of  the claim that new businesses  were  being  brought   to  the  Coast.  In addressing some of the  questions from the public,  Buchan reminded council that  he was on record as opposing  the construction of previous  malls when he deemed them  premature, but his recommendations to the councils of the  day were ignored.  From: My Experience With Greatness   by Howard White   Not only was I about to attempt Ihe twisty morning run to  Langdale in a completely unrealistic time, I was going to try it  in a disintegrating eleven-year-old Volvo that was unsafe to  sit in let alone drive, and not only was I going to ask God to  forgive me this temptation to fate, I was going to load the car  up with eight heavy cases of books. 1 couldn't take my wife's  good little Toyota, because I had to leave it parked four days  at the Langdale terminal and her constitution couldn't support life for over thirty minutes without her Toyota.  The logical solution was to have her drive me and I could  sense she was just waiting for me to fall to my knees and ask,  bul somehow the trial presented by the Volvo with Its risk of  almost certain death, seemed easier to face...   ,  ...When an elderly woman in a fifteen-miles-an-hour Pinto  pulled oul in front of me on a corner with a car in the oncoming lane, I just cranked il for the shoulder and streaked past,  skidding in the gravel. If I had given in to the instinct to even  touch the brake, that left wheel would have jerked me into the  oncoming car so fast no one would ever have known whal  happened. There were a hundred factors, all matters of life  and death, which I had to keep juggling in my mind, never  missing a one. I even remembered to slow down at the speed  trap outside Sechelt, letting the Pinto overtake me and get  nailed. Does an astronaut at his bank of blinking controls  have so much to keep track of? No, all of his equipment is  forgiving and reliable and all his decisions neat and simple.  Gus Grissom would never have made it past the hairpin at  Silver Sands. But I made it to the ferry with thirty seconds to  spare.  As it happened, there was a two-sailing wait and cars were  lined up for a mile.  Energetic tao  The rodeo's coming!  Kennan Mackenzie  The rodeo is coming to Gibsons, of course it will be  adapted to suit our West Coast  ambience and seaside lifestyle.  There won't be any brahma  bulls or killer stallions, and  chuck wagon races are out. But  there will be mounted competitions and games, barrel racing  and any number of activities involving both Western and English style riding.  The plans for the rodeo were  unveiled at Gibsons council last  week, when Kennan Mackenzie,  on behalf of the Sea Cavalcade  committee, asked the town's  permission to use the parking  lot next to the swimming pool  for the event.   "What we'd like to do," he  explained, "is to have permission from council to flatten the  area out, put some landfill in  there, bring in some sand, and  erect a ring to have this rodeo."  The labour will be volunteer  and Mackenzie says he hopes to  have materials donated.  It is slated to take place during the afternoon of July 27 and  the riding clubs on the Coasl are  already preparing for some of  the events.  Council asked to committee  to provide a written description  of the events and their needs to  the public works superintendent.  ROlind-UP      Thr"        Gibsons  r  businesses were recently  WinnOrS       honoured for their efforts in the First Round  up, ��� fund raising  scheme for the Gibsons  Sea Cavalcade. Pictured,  counter-clockwise, are  Gwen Koftlnoff of the  Bank of Montreal, Clint  Thompson of Elphle's  Cabaret, winner as bed  pub, and Gwen Williams  of the Candy Shop, winner as best merchant.  The amonnl earned  for the Cavalcade was  nol available as of  deadline Saturday, but  last year $2200 was raised when 12 businesses  participated. This year  73 batalnwaH were a part  of Ihe event.  As an expression of phil-  isophical practicality, "If it  ain't broke, don't fix it," is a  pithy, if limited, maxim. The  caution not to tamper or interfere with anything that is  essentially functional, or only  apparently in need of corrective  intervention, became current in  backlash to what people were  perceiving as unwarranted  tinkering in damn near every  aspect of life by experts with  delusions of adequacy.  As an expression of  philosophical practicality, "If it  ain't broke, don't fix it," is a  ���anything���is always preferable to doing nothing. To stand  up and let someone suffer, not  to rush in and start "fixing"  things, is a difficult (if not impossible) request to make of  people with a compulsion to  "fix". Sadly, this has little to do  with altruism or love and concern.  I was constantly exposed to  the permutations and combinations of this culturally common  compulsion while engaged in  psycho-therapeutic casework in  Los Angeles. Established and  would-be therapists alike simply  would not and/or could not  keep their Freudian fingers or  psychodynamic jack boots off  the clients. And initially I, too,  was guilty of this behaviour.  "If helping (fixing) you  makes me fed better (and it's  supposed to, isn't it?), then I'm  going to help!" sums up a reality snared to some degree by  almost everyone.  Weil, not quite everyone.  Brian Shofar-Shogud (a col-  I  FROM THE HIP  J.M. Sherman  league whose name I have altered) interned with me at the Tar-  zana Psychiatric Hospital, and  created a sensation before being  asked to resign after three  weeks. Shofar-Shogud was born  in the United States, spent his  childhood on an Israeli kibbutz,  then journeyed to the Far East  where he remained for fifteen  years.  Brian returned to the States  living out a basic attitude which  he quite seriously called "the  energetic Tao." Realizing that  Western civilization has created  arid wreaked havoc with its excessive application of energy  and all manner of coercion,  Shofar-Shogud decided that the  answer for him was to add the  requisite amonnl of Yin to his  Yang. As Brian put it, "The Far  East is one giant Yin bin."  Back in the States, Shofar-  Shogud found it easy to obtain  therapeutic positions, but virtually impossible to retain them.  His credentials were impeccable, but his clinical approach  generally represented a threat to  the other practitioners. They  could not rationalize away nor  turn a blind eye to a therapist  who simply didn't try to fix his  clients; who left them alone and  largely presented a Chauncey  Gardener persona to the world.  Just "being there", Brian  knew, was what was ultimately  called for. And the fact that his  clients made genuine gains,  while the rest of us were frantically applying psychotherapeutic CPR to ours, evoked incredibly bitter and vindictive  retribution from the en-  culturated staff and administration..  "Don't do anything until you  know precisely what is called  for. And then proceed appropriately."  This the heart of Shofar-  Shogud's personal and professional philosophy. It's straight  forward, easily comprehensible  (on the surface), and it got him  fired from a half dozen jobs.  But his dismissals served only to  underscore the power and efficacy of Brian as a whole personality.  " 'If it ain't broke, don't fix  it' is okay for starters", Shofar-  Shogud suggested recently, "In  the East an expression like this  damn near couldn't be postulated. I mean, looked at one  way, nothing is ever broke,  everything's just going through  its process. So don't fix (aggress) and don't be passive  either."  "Energetic Tao?" I teased.  "And Dhow!", chirped  Shofar-Shogud. '  ':���'.;'  * ,'<f a* ���....; Coast News, May 13,1991  From the knapsack  Where life  is cheap  by Ellen Frith  "Well," said the know-it-all,  wagging his head as if the  weight of his knowledge made it  precariously heavy for his neck.  "It's a disaster but, of course,  life is cheap over there."  Over where? Where is life  cheap?  Bangladesh, of course. That  hell on earth on the Bay of  Bengal where over a hundred  thousand people have been  blown or washed away recently  during a cyclone and where a  few hundred thousand more  will soon die from the ravages  of disease and famine. Life over  there is cheap. It's dispensable.  In fact, storms like this are  nature's population controls.  I heard the "life is cheap"  argument regarding Bangladesh  last week. It was an echo of a  theme popular in certain circles  a fairly long time ago���1970.  That was Ihe time when an  equally devastating cyclone  removed hall a million  Bangladeshis from the face of  the earth, but in 1970, it happened that the storm hit closer  to home. Then I was living in  Karachi, West Pakistan.  Bangladesh hadn't earned its  name yet. It was still called East  Pakistan and ruled by the  larger, more powerful West. In  fact, the 1970 cyclone and ils  aftermath were an incentive for  seeking an independent country  but that wasn't lo happen for a  while yet.  At the lime of the storm I was  20 years old and had been in  Karachi for almost a year. Since  I had come to age in the tur-  bulant 60's and had already  spent several years immersed in  questioning and seeking the  right spiritual and philisophical  direction, I naively wrote in my  journal that most people's lives  in this part of Ihe world were  simple, because all they could  do was try to survive.

He was a  small, spare man, much older  than either of his employers,  and he came from East Pakistan. There was no work there  for hiak he said,, so he had  come ToTOrachi,.Without fail,  every month he sent money  home to his wife and children  who stayed'in the east. He  hadn't seen them for several  years but spoke glowingly nol  only of his four children, but  also of his wife. She is a fine  woman, he said.  Babu was a great cook and he  would calmly rustle up dinner  for 40 while I sat numb and  overwhelmed at the proposition  of such entertaining. He told me  what to do and I did it, and the  end results were always a success. Accolades would then  come to me which were really  Babu's by right.  He told me about the cyclone  the day it hit East Pakistan. His  family was safe because they lived further north on higher  ground but when describing the  storm, Babu covered his face  with his hands and cried. "All  those poor people," he said.  A week later, my husband  and I found ourselves flying  over India to Chittagong, in  East Pakistan, on an errand of  utmost importance we wen-  assured. My husband was in  advertising and, in such a trade,  one soon learns that everything  is of utmost importance and, no  mailer how smarmy or inconsequential the product, in advertising it  is treated  with the  respect reserved for a holy man.  A client beckons, the account  executive comes running. Those  are ihe rules of the game and, in  this case, the client was a powerful one���the Coca Cola Company.  Coca Cola sells a lot of soft  drinks in East Pakistan. So  many, in fact, that it actually  modifies its secret, well-  protected recipe by adding more  sugar. The explanation for this  extra sugar is that the skinny,  bone and sinew,rickshaw  drivers need the extra shot of  energy lo keep them peddling  on whal would otherwise be an  empty stomach.  I swear this is true. This is  what the East Pakistani head of  Coca Cola told us in 1970.  (As an aside: The next year  Coca-Cola couldn't understand  the reserve in using it's Fanta  Orange slogan, "It's Fun To Be  Thirsty!" in East Africa when  ihere was a severe drought in  most of the area...)  Anyway, there we were in  Chittagong, a few short days  after the worst storm in a century had killed so many hundreds of thousands of people.  The countryside was burnt by  the high winds. There were no  leaves left on the trees and  debris was scattered everywhere.  Nearer the sea, you could tell  how high the water had risen by  a sandal or a child's shirt caught  in the upper branches of a Iree.  Handwritten signs were erected  explaining that no fish was good  to eat at the moment because  they were feeding off the bodies  washed out to sea.  There were destitute and  hungry people everywhere and  the jackals, made bold by so  much death, couid be seen in  the late afternoon sneaking  down from the jungled hills.  Their howling al night made the  hair on the back of my neck  stand up.  There were some signs of international relief attempts. In  fact, these signs were noticed  even earlier in the market place  in Karachi where Hudson Bay  blankets suddenly went on sale,  misdirected through greed and  political corruption. In Chittagong, there was some stock  HJIing but it seemed il was mostly  Q   Iy of goods nobody knew what  to do with such as tins of apple  sauce.  And there were the stories of  the disaster.  Our present newscasts give us  figures, pictures of the disaster  and a run-down on the misery  but it is general. There is  nothing to press home the fact  that each of the dead was a person, with a name, an identity,  and loved ones. Each life was  hard, but it was not cheap.  In I970, we saw a half naked  woman walking aimlessly in  what is essentially a very,  modest country. Her neighbours told her siory.  She was holding her four  children lo a tree when the  water began rising slowly which  ii did for a long, long time, getting deeper and deeper. Finally  she could hold them no longer  and one by one they were swept  away until even the baby was  gone. The neighbours tried to  help but they could not get to  her and she went mad. When I  saw her, she was crying and calling out for her babies.  For a protected 20 year old  Canadian whose experience  with death was limited and who  had seriously mourned even lost  pets, to face the scene of a half a  million dead was staggering. It's  impact sank to the bottom of  my soul where it has stayed for  21 years slowly seeping into my  consciousness until I know full  well that nowhere is life cheap.  No matter where the victims  are, in whal poor, over-  populated hell-hole they are  born, no matter what their colour, religion or creed, their lives  are not cheap.  We should join Babu in  weeping for "all the poor people."

Nobody is more aware of these frightening  developments lhan the fishermen themselves. With their  long tradition of fierce independence, and a determination  10 preserve Iheir unique lifestyle, BC fishermen are dealing  with Ihe problems buffeting ihem in characteristic fashion.  The Cruickshank Commission, originating as it does  from within the indusiry rather lhan from government,  may yel provide solutions. Solutions lhal may well rescue a  resource and a way of life integral lo Ihe character of this  province.  The commission entertained the possibility of adopting  a scheme of salmon enhancement modeled on a highly successful program now in place in Alaska. Such a program  could be financed by a levy on fish al poinl of sale, (hereby  keeping the responsibility for ihe resource within the industry, lo say nothing of providing alternative employment to supplement a fisherman's income during the slack  winter months,  BC's once bountiful sea Stocks have dropped to alarming lows in less lhan 60 years. Bui ihe federal government,  probably viewing farmed fish as the answer to meeting  market demands, are now proposing to oil funding to  commercial fisheries. And, with an eye to the lourisl  dollar, Ottawa is simultaneously encouraging the sports  fishing sector.  The management of precious nalural resources is loo  crucial to be abdicated lo experts, no matter how well-  schooled or Intentioned. Ii is encouraging lo sec ihe  fishermen themselves anempiing lo lake charge of iheir  own laic and future.  A matter of respect  During the recenl visitation of an orca pod lo the Sechell  Intel, undoubtedly a soul-stirring event for many, we  received a disturbing number of calls reporting unwarranted incursions upon ihe whales' space. Unthinking���or  uncaring���humans in boats were observed chasing, buzzing, or otherwise harassing the magnificent mammals, exhibiting behaviour which would have senl them screaming  wilh indignation for a cop or a lawyer had another human  being ireaied ihem in like manner.  Whai lies behind ihis peculiar, singular compulsion on  the pari of human beings which impels us to either  destroy, interfere and intrude upon, or seek lo domesiicize  other life forms? Dolphins, whales, raccoons, deer and  other creatures continually pay ihe price of being non-  thrcalening creatures forced lo "share" ihe planet wilh the  aggresive and predatory likes of us. We must educate  ourselves quickly wilh regard to our modes of relating to  other species. We must learn to appreciate a flower  without picking ii, value wilderness we can't drive to, and  respect the basic rights to freedom and dignity of those  whose guilcssness and vulnerability make ihem such an  easy mark.  Perhaps inhabitants of ihe wild are ultimately perceived,  (on some subterranean, collective stratum, as being freaks  or fair game. Creatures "less lhan human", with no inherent rights, which have been put in the world for our  amusement. We fail to distinguish between "buzzing" a  whale and bailing a bear, although we confess, with some  naivete, thai we had assumed such tendencies were largely  extinct, al least in an area supposedly noted for ils evolved  state of general consciousness.  Hope springs  Political news getting you down; reports on the  economy depressing? Be of good cheer. The Minnesota  North Stars and the Pittsburgh Penguins, after years of  futility are in the Stanley Cup Finals, it would seem.  Despair is always premature. Hope springs eternally and  as surely as this marvellous springtime.  I'd never been to a birthday  party for a man who was 100  years old before Sunday, May  5. It's probably safe to say that  most of the ISO or so guests  who attended the celebration  for Dudley C. Carter's one hun  dredth birthday at the Vaughan  residence on Gower Point Road  had likewise never attended  such an affair before.  It is absolutely certain that  there can scarcely have been  hundredth birthday parties  anywhere, any time for a more  remarkable centenarian.  Dudley C. Carter was born in  New Westminster, BC in 1891.  There wasn't much in the way  of early schooling.  "There weren't any schools  then."  Carter went to work in the  family logging operation at a  very early age greasing the skid  roads for the team of oxen thai  hauled the forest giants to the  sea.  The family moved to live  among the Indians of Alert Bay  around the turn of the century  and it was here that Carter was  exposed to the art of the Wesl  Coast Indians which so formed  his subsequent career.  A limber cruiser and self-  taught forest engineer, Carter  earned his living in the  woods���'a wilderness man'. It  was an attack of scurvy in his  thirties which led him to pay  close attention to matters  dietary, lo which he attributes  his active longevity. And active  il is. This is a hundred-year old  who still creates giant sculptures  from the rainforest giants using  a two-headed axe. An astonishing phenomenon.  Nephew Earl Carter was the  master of ceremonies during the  A most  remarkable  Canadian  Dudley Carter and Peter Paul Ochs.  MUSINGS  John Burnside  tribute-paying stage of the birthday celebrations. An  apparently tireless Carter  greeted all present individually.  Gifted wilh a new two-headed  axe by the president of the BC  Sculpture Association Phil  Ochs, Carter described the axe  as his alltime favourite tool���  "After my knife and fork, of  course."  During the reading of the  message of congratulations  from Queen Elizabeth II one  guest reported that a bald eagle  had drifted soundlessly  overhead.  Carter's stature is (should one  say "of course"?) more fully  realized in Washington State  than it is in his native province.  The government of the state  provided Carter with his waterfront home and studio and the  bulk of his massive and  evocative works are to be found  there.  As far back as 1937 Dudley  C. Carter was the centre piece in  the giant mural done by famed  Mexican artist Diego Rivera.  Rivera's mural, done for the  San Francisco World Fair, was  an attempt to show the spectrum from native art to modern  and industrial work and Rivera  saw the self-taught forest  engineer from British Columbia, with his work echoing the  work of the Coastal natives, to  be a pivotal figure in the world  of art.  A wonderful documentary of  Carter, then only 88, at work on  ihree giant statues for inclusion  in a shopping mall in Portland,  sketched the early years and  gave us an unforgettable glimpse of the indefatigable sculptor  at work, opening the gates of  the work site to the construction  crews in the morning and living  himself in a trailer actually on  the building site. Californian  film maker Abby Sher gives an  unforgettable glimpse of the  seemingly frail Carter relentlessly at work with his axe amidst  the hurly burly of giant cranes  and earth moving machines.  Needless to say, the project was  finished on time.  "He makes the rest of us look  like dilettantes," said another  noted BC sculptor at the conclusion of the film showing.  A magical and moving day.  The only sadness was the  absense of genial and generous  David Vaughan to host the affair. David was tragically killed  earlier this year during a visit to  Nova Scotia. How he so loved a  party; how proud he was of his  celebrated father-in-law. While  honouring the remarkable  Dudley, I'm sure we all shed a  silent tear for David.  LETTERS  Foot path  needed  Editor:  Due to the immense increase  ��� in traffic, Highway 101 is no  '. longer safe for pedestrians,  : cyclists, children or the elderly  ; to ride, jog or walk alone.  Why do our councils look  upon the request for a foot path  ; as a greal burden and expense to  ' our communily? The benefits of  I health and safety would accrue  ; lo all people of all ages and  j would certainly give pctce of  ; mind to motorists, cyclists and  ; pedestrians as well.  ��� We have no place lo walk  other   than   the   roadside.   I  Ihonestly believe many would  . walk if Ihey had a little blacktop  ^separating Ihem from the cars  and trucks.  ��� Anyone who feels the same  'way I do, I would like you to  ���i write a letter to your mayor or  itown council and maybe  .'together we can help persuade  ��� them to construct a bicycle/foot  ���path adjacent to Highway 101.  Kim Phillips  Special thanks  for support  Editor:  In addition to all those listed  in our programme, No Name  Thealre would like lo specially  lhank the following organizations and businesses for their  great support in assisting the  Precious Sons production: Gibsons Landing Thealre Project;  Gibsons Building Supplies; The  Roy Lewis Studio; Seabird Rentals, Suncoast Motors; Sunshine  Coast Music Society; Driftwood  Players; Festival of the Written  Arts; School District #46  Resource Centre; Dairyland;  Roberts Creek Community  Association.  Amateur performing on the  Sunshine Coast is growing constantly, and the backing of such  programmes will ensure an increasing level of culture and  entertainment for all. Variety is  the spice of life, and we enjoyed  contributing our theatre programme to our community.  Jay Pomfret, Director  No Name Theatre  Thanks to veterans  Editor:  The Sechell Celebration Days  Committee have been doing  iheir best to provide to the people of the Sunshine Coast with a  series of events to celebrate  Canada Day. Various invitations have been mailed to  organizations - bands - military  and naval units and the general  public to participate.  An invitation in the Canadian  Navy was nol accepted, bul the  United States indicated the  possibility thai they may be able  lo attend. Our neighbours lo the  south have always been receptive to joint celebralions and ihe  Sechelt Celebration Days Committee appreciated their interest.  The presence of an American  warship in Canadian waters is  nothing new. I should think that  joining with our neighbours to  celebrate would be one more indication of Canada's peaceful  intentions. Canadians in the  main are a peaceful nation and  are frequently called on by the  United Nations to prove to the  world our expertise in peace  keeping.  There have been times in the  past when Canadian Military  Forces have had to do more  than keeping the peace. The  presence of an American warship would be one of those  times.  If A.M. Lindsay and the Sunshine Coast Peace Group really  love peace, they should thank a  veteran for it.

Box 740  Sechelt, BC, VON 3A0  Dear Chief Paul, Council and  Band Members  We would like to take this  opportunity to heartily thank  you for your extremely  generous contribution to the  purchase and installation of the  new playground at Sechelt  Elementary  School.   As  you  know, the Parents Group has  worked tirelessly on various  fundraising projects in order to  raise the necessary funds.  Thanks to your donation, the  playground will be substantially  larger and of a superior quality.  We all place a high value on  the education of our children.  Your support of this project indicates your recognition of the  importance of making the  school a desirable place to be.  We are optimistic that the  new playground equipment will  be in place before the end of this  school year. Sechelt Elementary  students, as well as the community at large will enjoy the  results of the efforts and support of our parents and communities.  Again, many thanks.  Sandy McBride  Co-chair  Parents Advisory Council  Show a success  Editor:  On behalf of Gibsons and  District Chamber of Commerce  I would like to congratulate our  community for another very  successful trade show.

Dick Thomas, our president,  the models for the fashion  show, Alex Kempernaar of  Cedars Inn.  There are many people to  thank and if I've missed you,  thanks again.

The public should  perceive the ministry as 'value  neutral.' " (Forest Planning  Canada, July 1990, P. 5.)  In contrast to Halkett *s appeal for fairness and impartiality, Forests Minister Claude  Richmond has been travelling  around the province exhorting  loggers to defend the status  quo. " 'Fight For Your Jobs' ���  Minister Urges Loggers" reads  the front page headline of the  December S, 1990 North Island  Gazette.  Halkett's abrupt removal last  week reveals that the Ministry  of Forests' attempt to return to  integrity and stewardship were  opposed by the forest industry.  They want a return to "business  as usual" and to Hell with  public confidence in the  Ministry of Forests.

Here  is a quote from David Suzuki:  "As a scientist who spent 25  years studying heredity and the  development of one organism,  the fruitfly, I am overwhelmed  at how little we have learned  about it. And fruitflies have  been a major object of intensive  study for over 80 years!  "The notion therefore that  biologists know enough to  'manage' complex communities  of organisms in the wild is  astonishing. We have invested  miniscule efforts into identifying the components of  ecosystems and how they interact. Current wildlife  'management' practices are the  crudest kind of manipulation  done in almost total ignorance  of nature."  Of all our provincial and national parks there are some that  are designated as 'Class A'  where logging and mining etc.  are not allowed. Is there hunting and trapping allowed in  these parks? We think there  should not be. We believe that it  is very important that there are  some safe havens for these wild  animals.  We also find it unacceptable  that todays wildlife management strategy is based on defining species as 'good' or 'bad'  depending on how humans  want to use those species!! They  are all a part of a natural  ecosystem which we, by our  very presence disturb. It has  been proven many times over  that 'management' does not  work.

Nutter  It is a rounding black stone,  Fits into the palm of your hand  and hefts about like a Ronson  table lighter. A stone you would  think that you might pick up  anywhere, and in fact it was  picked up off Pratt Road in the  township of Gibsons.  It is polished, but not with  any kind of commercial polish.  The polish could be from hundreds of thousands of years of  just rolling about in sea and ice  and sand; but the stone was  found well above the tide mark,  and its gloss is thought to be  wear polish, from prolonged  usage as a tool, in this case a  scraper.  What it has is a face. Well,  we can see faces in almost  anything, clouds, stuccoed ceilings, tea leaves, abstract art  even. Bul this is a face in stone,  and clearly it has been cut into  the stone, and it seems lhal the  cutting was done thousands,  maybe hundreds of thousands  of years ago.  How can we know this you  may say. The slone is in the  Elphinstone Museum in Gibsons, and Tarn Johnson, the  man who found the stone is  often there and can tell you  about it.  Hundreds of thousands of  years is a long lime, even ar-  chaeologically. Our oldest  mummy is 'only' 4,500 years  old. Bul the character of the  Elphinstone face strongly supports the conclusion lhat this  stone picked up in Gibsons goes  back long before that, and likely well before any other artifacts  thai have been found in North  America.  It is not any kind of ordinary  present day face. It has very  heavy brows, squal nose, wide  mouth and practically no chin.  It is certainly human though,  not a monkey face.  In the museum il sits beside a  reproduction of 'Peking Man',  and the resemblance is unmistakable. Peking Man is  recognized as one of the earliest  examples of tool-making  humans we have in the world.  His fossils were discovered on  the Mongolian plain north of  Beijing, but the evidence is that  he left this site something over  300,000 years ago.  Are we suggesting then that  he came to Gibsons? A map on  the wall near the case with the  rocks shows us thai he certainly  could have. In the second last  Ice Age the oceans shrank to the  smallest compass of their existence. The bridge between  Siberia and Alaska was dry land  all the way and led straight out  of the Mongolian Plain. The  temperatures in the north were  well within Ihe tolerance of Peking Man, and the food he was  used to would have been found  all along whal wc now call the  Aleutian chain.  Add to this the indications  that there was pressure of other  people coming inlo the  Mongolian Plain, and animals  nol before known ihere like  tigers and bears, giant camel  and ostrich. He could well  perhaps have decided to move  along.  If he did he would have been  protected all along the way  from the North American  glaciers by the mountain ranges  of the West Coast. His inclination would have have had lots  of room lo roam. Bul then, why  slay in Gibsons?  Well it seems lhat Gibsons  even way back then was a  special place to be. The glaciers  had rounded off the tops of the  nearby mountains and  deposited the alluvial soils along  the shore. Little streams of  icewaler fell down on the  plateau. All sorts of edible  grasses and bushes nourished.  The island mountains offshore  sheltered ihem from the rising  seas. Once here, we can certainly see Ihey had no reason lo  leave.  Happy Birthday  Gibsons!  On May 24,106 yean ago, George Gibsons stepped ashore  from his boat Swamp Angel, and, even though he may not  have known it, the future Town of Gibsons was bom.  To commemorate the occasion, modem day citizens of the  town have scheduled a variety of events.  The Gibsons Landing Merchants' Association will mark  Ihe occasion with appropriately decorated stores.  Special displays and a birthday cake will be featured on  May 18 and 19 at the Gibsons Museum, which will also be  celebrating its 25th anniversary, and the Gibsons Landing  Heritage Society will be hosting a Heritage Tea at the  Women's Institute Hall on May 18 from 2 to 4 pm.  Museum celebrates  anniversary  The Klphinslone Pioneer Museum will observe its 25lh anniversary in May, 1991.  Please come and help us celebrate on May 18 from 12 noon  lo 4 pm. There will be special attractions for all.  The museum is always looking for new members,  volunteers, and financial donations. We also appreciate Ihe  loan and donations of historical artifacts.  The museum is situated across from Ihe Gibsons Post Office on Winn Road. Our phone number is 886-8232, and we  are open seven days a week.

It is also, as  with Tarn Johnson's stone, a  place to conjecture. We move  upstairs at the museum, into  what is for sure our own past  and, with some few more questions perhaps, the past of the  Native peoples.  EARLY SETTLERS  Most of the things up here we  can recognize, but few of them I  would guess we have ever seen.  Three rooms at ihe back  reproduce the interiors of the  early settlers' houses. Seventeen  hundred photographs, not all ot  ihem of course mounted, give  life lo the interiors, and to the  plough-shares and picks and  scythes and presses and adzes  and a profusion of tools and  made-up gadgets, and a forge  for making bullets maybe and a  huge bellow, in particular, I  thought, an old axe. The old axe  gives you pause when you ihink  of ihe woods. It's a far cry from  a double bit clearing axe of today. All these things which it is  intercsiing lo rool aboul among  gel linked lo places and  characters and events when you  can sec them in one place with a  good collection of photographs.  This Coasl has been well served  by its early photographers.  BOATS  Next lo all this no-so-ancient  ironware a spanking 'double-  ender' fishing boat brings to  mind a famous writer of the  Coast. Hubert Evans made this  boal, a surprisingly light and  almost fragile looking crafl I  thought for the job, because he  fished commercially from il oul  of Roberts Creek through many  of ihose 'dried-up' years lhat  writers seem to experience.  Across the way another  writer and another boal. Lester  Peterson is our principle local  historian (his latest book is The  Story of the Sechelt Nation) and  this is his collection. The boat is  longer lhan Evans', much  lighter, and definitely fragile, al  least to look at. It is a Salish  racing canoe, and it is hard lo  see how the gunwale would slay  above waler wilh a couple of  hefty Haida in It.  The famous big Haida seagoing canoes are featured in a  vivid picture which stretches  along the wall behind the Peterson collection. Painted by Jessie  Morrison of Hopkins Landing  in the style of Paul Kane,  master painter of the Indians on  Ihe western prairie, il shows a  Haida war party returning lo  Iheir lodges. It's a scene I find  lhal somehow slicks in the  memory���Ihe warriors, arms  out-stretched, holding up the  dripping scalps; and the captured women in one canoe all  with their heads bowed.  INDIAN CARVING  A (amine Indian figure of a  kind I've never seen anywhere  else, hangs on the wall back  down on the first Iloor. Il loo  has a haunting quality. Disjointed, made of cedar, and  almost six feel long, it is a mor-  luary figure found in a cave  near Bella Coola. The head is a  big, almost featureless mask  which somehow manages to be  baleful.  We lurn from Ihis lo a case of  skulls, and beyond them we're  back at the stones. The museum  contains much else, including a  greal collection of sea shells  from the coast and around the  world, left to the museum by  Charles Bedford, bul I end up  at Ihe sioncs and another look  at the question of 'Peking  Man'.  Could this really be so? Bul  then nobody knew what Peking  Man looked like, or thai lie existed, before 1927. How could  he be carved unless he was carved by someone who was looking  al the face he was carving?  Below the shelf wilh the slone  face is a collleciion of primitive  slone tools, all picked up in this  area. Over 400 of these, the  earliesl of artifacts have been  picked up along the Sunshine  Coasl. So as you walk along  keep your eyes peeled. Maybe ut  of the Elphinstone Museum this  ancient peninsula will become  the premier archeological site in  the Americas.

But that was on June 18,  1957, when Mrs. Don Clark,  the former Edna Langdale, cut  the ribbon with an engraved  pair of shears lo officially open  the Langdale Ferry Terminal of  the Black Ball Line.  Edna was the granddaughter  of the Langdale who home-  steaded on the site in 1894. The  name Langdale is preserved  there and in the nearby subdivision.  "The new terminal took the  pressure of traffic off the streets  and dock in the village of Gibsons," Wally Langdale, Mrs.  Clark's brother, said. "When  my grandfather's home burned  to the ground in 1906, he moved  to Vancouver to live with one of  my uncles. He was 74 at the  time. But as you see the family  name has remained lo remember him by."  Wally, now resident in the  Kiwanis Apartments, has been  given the shears by his sister and  Tie plans to present them to the  Elphinstone Pioneer Museum.

Many societal and educational changes are taking place around us. As a result,  members of the School District #46 community have been forming questions that  ask about our future.  To answer these questions, our School Board, CUPE (Canadian Union of Public  Employees), parents, SCTA (Sunshine Coast Teachers' Association), students,  SCCA (Sunshine Coast Administrators' Association) and district staff have identified a need to set a direction and identify priorities for future years.  A District Steering Committee representing all of the above groups has been  established to survey the district and articulate a vision for the future.  The District Steering Committee wishes to facilitate you as a community member  in having input into this District Vision by having you complete a brainstorming  process. The question we ask you to use in your brainstorm is stated below.  Open your mind to a Vision of  the Future. How would you  imagine and describe the  learning places you've always  wanted to be part of, to learn  and work in?  Please submit your response to thla question to your local school or to the School  Board Oflice, In person or by mall. The last date that responses will be taken Is  May 28th, 1991.

As if to  discourage fair weather friends  and promote gumboots, the  rain came down hard just as  people were organizing food for  picnics and preparing to leave  their homes.  But leave ihey did to join  others al the Roberts Creek  Campsite where Ihree tail cedar  Maypoles awaited one of the  rites of spring, dancing around  ihe Maypole. Weaving and  unwlaving the fabric of the  dance was a challenge in  cooperation and an exercise in  exuberance. A mandolin lifted  Its voice above sounds of fun  and laughter. Garlands of  yellow (lowers adorned those  present���children, women and  men alike. A few cozy, warm  fires drew people into small  circles to roast hot dogs, eat  snacks, and enjoy conversation.  The rain had stopped, and  children had found the sand  bar.  The gumboot, accepted symbol of Roberts Creek, was  honoured in the game, Stake the  Gumboot. A short, serious  speech declaring Roberts Creek  an independent nation finalized  the planned activity for the  evening.  ROBERTS CREEK DAZE  Plans are being made lo have  Roberts Creek Daze on August  24. Cliff Gilker is being seriously considered as a possible site  for the event. All opinions on  this can be voiced at the next  planning meeting, May 16 at 8  pm al the hall. Although  Yvonne Mounsey is coordinating the annual event, more  volunteers are crucial. Yvonne  is also looking for it co-  coordinator. Bring energy and  ideas lo ihe meeting.

Tributes were paid to this fine  lady who has been a property  owner on Redrooffs since 1945  and a permament resident since  1968. For many years it was  Thea who arranged and  presented film nights in  Welcome Beach Hall in the days  before television kept people at  home.  She has also given many  volunteer hours at the Sunshine  Coast Arts Centre and is well  known by many young people  of the area from the years spent  as teacher's aid at Halfmoon  Bay School.  One of the highlights of the  binhday party was the arrival of  a clown bearing a Jiandful of  balloons. This was a delightful  surprise for Thea, and thanks  go to Ronnie Dunn as a marvellous clown.  Thea wishes, through this  column, to express her heartfelt  thanks to all who helped  celebrate with her, and special  thanks for the lovely cards and  flowers. It was indeed a day to  remember.  COUNTRY FAIR  The theme for this year's  Halfmoon Bay Country Fair  will be 'Music', plus honouring  the the Pioneers of Halfmoon  Bay.  The Committee has already  been at work planning for the  best fair yet, but booth rentals  are going fast. If you want to  make sure of your spot give  Fiona West a call at 885-3483.  Watch out too for the 50/50  raffle ticket which will be on  sale soon.  Events planned are: Car Rally; Kids' Fishing Derby; Family  Social and Dinner; Pancake  Breakfast; Trophy Run; and of  course lots of food stalls,  booths, contests and fun for the  whole family.  Extra help is always needed,  so if you can manage to spare  some of your time for a really  good affair, call 885-5740 and  offer to lend a hand.  WELCOME NEIGHBOUR!  A warm neighbourhood  welcome to Penny and Roger  Ulmer from Kamloops who  have taken up residence at Pat  Hilton's former home by  Cooper's Green.  An opportunity of a lifetime  happens this Wednesday, May  15 at Halfmoon Bay Elementary School. You have a choice  of being there at either 12:30 in  the afternoon or at 7:30 in the  evening, or even both times, to  enjoy some fabulous entertainment by the kids. It's the great  Talent Show! Auditions have  been carried out, rehearsals are  still underway, so everything  will be all set to go.  Everyone will be welcome to  come to the school gym and to  donate a little towards supporting the school's trip to see the  Phantom of the Opera.  HONOURING MARY  This Thursday, May 16 is a  very special day at the Welcome  Beach all when there will be a  luncheon. As most of our  readers know, Mary Shannon  has moved from her Redrooffs  home and is in the process of  settling in at Royal Terraces in  Sechelt.  It seems fitting that this  special recognition be given to  one who has been a great supporter and worker for the  Welcome Beach Community  Hall, having been involved in  the hall right from the day it  started. Mary has been a supporter of all the community  groups in Halfmoon Bay and is  a very highly thought of lady in  our midst.  The luncheon starts at noon,  so make sure you get there in  good time as there is sure to be  quite a crowd. Admission is $3,  and if anyone should need a ride  please call Al Buckley at  885-3305 or Marion Terrillon at  885-5270.  FLEA MARKET  Despite the fact thai Sunday  was a miserable wet morning,  many people turned out for the  Welcome Beach Annual Flea  Market and were not disappointed.

Jod jo*aaioa< afcoio  IHARBOUR WATCHi  1EGM0NT NEWS  by Dixie Percy, 883-9228  At long last, hello again. 1  have to apologize lo the worthy  citizens of Egmont lor Ihe  absence or a news column the  past few weeks. I could write an  essay on the trials and tribulations of getting this column oul  via several round trips up and  down the ribbon of highway  that wraps itself around the  walls of the mighty Fraser Canyon, but I'll keep it brief.  Winding your way through  the canyon is an event in itself,  but what gives it lhat added  edge is the fact lhat, on this  highway, you're in truckers' territory. That means, going uphill  the speed is 50 kilometres. Going downhill it's roughly 130  kilometres. To glance in the rear  view mirror and see nothing but  10 feet of grill barrelling down  on you is a feeling I usually  reserve for watching movies like  Friday the 13th or Nightmare  on Elm Street. What's worse is  knowing there's 60 feel of iruck  behind lhat grill, loaded with  huge slabs of steel or something  equally as heavy and the driver  is doing all he can lo keep from  turning little old me into road  pizza. In Ihis neck of the woods,  semis are definitely kings of the  road.  Miraculously, I managed to  make it into the town of Hope  with only a minor case of mus  cle tension. Once there, things  didn't improve.  I pulled up to ihe main hotel  in town, confident thai I would  just have lo breeze in and have  Ihe Egmont News faxed inlo the  night and, voila, my deed would  be done. Not so. In this town  ihey either can't or won't fax  things for people. Possibly, if I  were a trucker, but my request  only seemed to make l hem  suspicious. I drove away,  defeated, and homesick.  Well, fortunately this talc has  a happy ending. I'm back on  the Coasl again, in the land of  Ihe friendly and willing and, as  you can see I am once again  able to oblige you with your  own news.  As far as real news goes,  there isn't much. The two main  items missed recently were the  elections for the Egmonl Community Club executive and the  May birthday crowd.  In the elections, Martin Mees  was re-elected as president and  Belly Silvey is the new vice-  president. Belly was the long  time secretary-treasurer and her  old post is now being held by  Kelly Kniepkeins. The executive  board consists of Bill Hall,  Geoff Craig, John Dafoc, Vera  Grafton and John Seabrook.  Happy May birthdays lo  Marten Mees, Barb Ellis, Wally  Silvey, Bruce Silvey, Kory  Leander,   Bill   Farrell,   Terri  Bowles, Ben Angus, Tim and  Jennifer Wismer, Brcnda Martin, Marie Wallace, Tom Paicr-  son, Edna Howltt, Kevin  Graham, Gene Silvey, Sue  Cook, Cliff Silvey, Julie Tyn-  dale, lyn Vaughan, Myrtle  Winchester, Chic Page, Sue  Marlalle, Joint Percy and Shea  Young.  by Jacalyn Vincent, 883-2840  The Pender Harbour Clinic  Auxiliary would like to extend a  thank you to all those  volunteers who were unable to  attend iheir Earth Day theme  tea.

First performance at  new SIGD theatre  by Rose Nicholson  The Raven's Cry Theatre, at  (he new Sechelt Indian Band  complex, saw its first performance last weekend when the  Sunshine Choristers, directed by  Joan Scales, presented their  spring concert.  The premiere performance in  the new theatre was a prelude to  the grand opening of the  Hewhiwus complex which will  take place on May 29.  In an interview with the  Coast News, Theresa Jeffries  said that among other events of  the gala opening will be a performance of Moon Lodge by  native playwright and actress  Margo Kane.  For the past several months,  a professional theatre consultant has been training a crew in  theatre production and management. Fifteen students have  been learning state of the art  techniques of lighting, audio,  stage management, front of  house management, and all the  different aspects of theatre  management.  Paul Murphy, who spent 12  years in theatre during the 60's  and decided to update his ex  perience by taking the recent  course, paused briefly in his  hectic preparation schedule to  tell the Coast News about the  enthusiasm and dedication of  everybody involved with the  project.  "This is one of the most  beautiful theatres I've ever  seen," he said. "It's state-of-  the-art, with 274 seats, just ex-  acty the right size for live  theatre, and it's also capable of  projecting motion pictures.  "The 15 people who took the  course are some of the most enthusiastic theatre people I've  ever worked with. They come  from all over the Coast, are  both native and non-native and  really are marvelous, it took a  lot of work and I'm proud to  have worked with them."  Murphy described the outstanding murals in the new  theatre, the work of an artist  from the Musqueam Band. He  said that future plans for the  theatre will be productions by  local drama groups as well as  groups from other parts of BC  and across Canada.  "But right now," he concluded, "everything is geared for the  big opening. It will be an exciting event."

Profits from the one  night stand will go toward the  preservation of the beleaguered  and beloved community focal  point.  Gracing the stage will be Eddie Shaw and the Wolf Gang, a  blues quartet fronted by sax  man extraordinaire, Eddie  Shaw, and featuring the guitar  slylings of Eddie "Vaan"  Shaw, Jr. Rounding out the  foursome are bassist Lafayette  "Shorty" Gilbert, and percussionist Robert Plunkett.  Diehard blues fans and aficionados should know Shaw  (who also blows harp and  handles vocals) as Howlin'  Wolf's longtime sideman and  musical director. Hence 'The  Wolf Gang', Shaw's on-the-'  nose tribute to Howlin' Wolf  when the slick old master played  his last licks and shuffled off into the pages of blues history.  Called "one of the hardest-  working men in the blues", Eddie Shaw's soul and musical  precision has long been an open  secret among his peers, a group  not known for paying lip service  to anything other than the  mouthpiece of a horn. Born in  Mississippi half a century ago,  Shaw's early contact with the  blues and its practitioners imbued him with a deeply-held  sense of the art form's traditions.  "I look up to all the guys",  says Shaw. "I don't want to imitate anybody. I have a lot of  respect for all these guys keepin'  the tradition." And, after 30  years steeping himself in this  most endearing���and enduring  ���of all indigenous American  musical forms of expression,  Shaw expresses the optimism of  the born survivor: "Blues is  gaining some of the ground it  should have gained a long time  ago."  Shaw's career has proven to  be wide-ranging and multi-  faceted. Onstage he plays alto  and tenor sax, mouth harp,  sings, and leads the unit. Offstage he is a talented songwriter,  arranger, and was even Howlin'  Wolfs personal manager for  five years. Shaw's music has  been recorded by the likes of  John Hammond, Magic Sam,  Otis Rush, Willie Dixon  and���who else?���Howlin'  Wolf himself.  When Eddie Shaw and the  Wolf Gang send those first bars  of the blues snaking round the  venerable confines of the  Roberts Creek Community Hall  come eight o'clock Sunday  evening, they will be creating  another chapter or two in an  oral history which precious few  people are privy to.  But as Brownie McGhee was  overheard to remark in a smoky  Toronto club back in '64 "The  blues never was a question of  quantity. It's quality what lasts  in this world."  Tickets ($10) can be snagged  only at the Roberts Creek  General Store.  I.  ���'��� ������"���..  .,;.^.a,,,J;^.>;.wrv,.!,ga Coast News, May 13,1991  15.

In the face of a  request from a beachfront property owner to acquire the extra  land, directors decided to apply  for a foreshore lease on the strip  so that it will be available for  the use of the public.  because they encompass such a  wide variety of styles and approaches to clay. The Guild has  for the past 18 years provided  an opportunity for learning,  ideas exchange, community  education, and a work space for  its 30 members. Its community  education mandate has been of  special importance, and classes  for all ages and abilities are a  regular feature.  The show is open during  regular gallery hours, 10 am to 4  pm, daily.  ��� Fnendl, Country Legion  f-A Roberts  im Creek  LEGION  Branch 219  Mike  Conway  >  Friday, May 17th &  Saturday, May 18th  Friday Nile Dinner  Baron of Beef  Mambtra and bona Ada /Iff.,.  guatti welcome ��R/\\L  Grilled New York Steak  Sat.

THE CREEKHOUSE RESTAURANT  It was a special night wilh a special lady. We agreed upon a dining experience together  as opposed to just "having dinner". 1 phoned the Creekhouse Restaurant to let them  know we were coming; and we took a leisurely drive along Lower Road to Roberts  Creek.  Choosing a week night lo enjoy the Creekhouse was a stroke of genius���or so I let on!  We were rewarded with just the right amount of attentive and capable service from Barbara, our charming and knowledgeable hostess/server.  We were interested by the architecture of the restaurant, and enjoyed its country setting. We eschewed (pardon the unfortunate word choice) the selection of tempting appetizers, and went directly to the business at hand���deciding upon our entrees.  My salad was the first item to arrive and, begging forgiveness, I started right in, pausing only long enough to appreciate the artistic and appealing arrangement of the lettuce,  tomato, zucchini and black olives���all in a dressing containing Dijon mustard, lemon  juice and olive oil. Herself was still a mere spectator all the while; but being a good sport  about it.  Barbara's timing was perfect. She whisked away my empty salad plate and was soon  back with two steaming entrees. We both remarked on their appearance���a feast for the  eyes as well as the palate���and very inviting.  We dined, we enjoyed, we admired the European cuisine so well demonstrated by  Chef Yvan. My veal with marsala and vegetables was truly delightful. The veal was  tender and succulent. The veggies were not overcooked. My partner's chicken breast  with papaya and macadamia nut sauce was, she swears, exquisite.  Madame's dessert choice was a generous cut of summer Zucotto: fruit in ice cream  surrounded by chocolate cake. I made short work of a delightful, light, lemon tarte.  We both agreed we had dined royally at Chef Vvan's Creekhouse Restaurant. Our  compliments to the chef.  FAMILY DINING  Cafe Pierrot- Comfortable atmosphere with warm, helpful staff.

Sechelt Chamber  of Commerce  President Al  Driscoll (left),  RCMP Cpl.  Bruce Haynes  (centre) and Staff  Sergeant Ray  Stelter discuss  crimes against  businesses with  Sechelt merchants at  Rockwood Centre last Thursday.  Stuart Burnside photo  Alliance demands public  hearings on water exports  Merchants discuss security  The Save Georgia Strait  Alliance (SGSA) on Wednesday, April 29, called on newly-  appointed provincial Environment Minister Dave Mercier to  order full public hearings on  bulk water exports before a  policy decision is made.  The SGSA, which represents  58 member organizations including environmental groups,  labour unions, native bands and  recreational organizations,  claims that the issue of bulk  water exports requires a full  public debate because the environmental and economic impacts could be dramatic. The  by Stuart Burnside  Approximately 25 Sechelt  merchants showed up at a  Chamber of Commerce forum  May 9 to discuss recent crimes  against businesses in the  municipality. Over 400 merchants had been invited.  "I'm a little disappointed  with the turn out," said  Chamber of Commerce President Al Driscoll, "How serious  do people think the problem is  if they don't show up to discuss  it."  Attending the meeting with  Driscoll were Staff Sergeant  Ray Stelter and Corporal Bruce  Haynes of the Sechelt RCMP  detachment.  Haynes told the gathering  that reported crime in the  Sechelt area went up 39 per cent  in the first four months of this  year, but noted that the rate for  crimes which had been solved  had gone up nearly 20 per cent  for the same time period.  "That statistic doesn't include people we apprehend who  are responsible for multiple  crimes bul only get charged for  one," he said.  While they told their audience  that the RCMP didn't believe  the recent crimes constituted a  "crime wave" the officers did  state their detachment was  woefully understaffed for the  size of the area they were required to patrol.  "We've got eight members  on general duty..." said Stelter,  "and there is a lot of administration paperwork that has  to be done...Sometimes there is  only one officer on duty to  cover an area from Flume Road  to Egmont..."  When asked specifically what  could be done to provide more  protection for Sechelt  businesses, Stelter suggested  that businesses try, once again,  to pursue the possibility of providing their own security  through a citizens' watch group  or a private security firm. He  said that in other towns where  such things had been set up ihe  results were almost always  favourable.  Sechelt merchant Nancy  Palmer, however, pointed out  lhat Iwo previous attempts, by  herself and other merchants, to  organize such a security alternative had met with failure.  "A lot of business owners  don't want to pay," she said,  "they seem to feel lhat this  (robbery, vandalism) couldn't  happen to them."  She indicated the emptiness  of the forum as proof that the  threat of robbery probably  wasn't being taken too seriously.  After being assured by the  RCMP that no additional officers would be coming to the  area in the forseeable future, it  was suggested that perhaps the  price of business licenses could  be raised, through an act of  Sechelt Council, to make all the  merchants partly responsible for  hiring private security to patrol  the streets of Sechelt.  Alderman Doug Reid, also at  the meeting, cautioned those  present that, if they were to bring such a proposal before the  council, it would have to be  done in such a way as to assure  the support of a majority of the  businesses and leave no doubt  as lo whal direction the council  would be expected to take. "It's  got to be crystal clear," said  Reid, "without any grey areas."  It was decided that letters  would be sent, through the  Chamber of Commerce, to all  of the businesses in the district,  to "feci them out" regarding  the idea, as well as trying to  ascertain how much each  business might be willing to  contribute lo have the nightly  patrols performed.  LRUP shackles anger district  by Rose Nicholson  There is a growing reaction to  the recent announcement by  District Forester Barry Mountain of the curtailment of the activities of the Tetrahedron Local  Resource Use Plan (LRUP)  committee.  Members of the Outdoor  Recreation Advisory Committee (ORAC) have expressed  strong disapproval of the action, and this message was  brought to Regional District  directors at last week's board  meeting by Director Jeremy  Frith who had previously expressed his own dissatisfaction  with Mountain's action by  walking out of the LRUP  meeting.  The ORAC motion stated  that, "given the obvious  pressure brought to bear on Mr.  Barry Mountain by government  and industry to undermine the  process of the Tetrahedron  LRUP, ORAC requests that  Economic Development com  missioners and the SCRD board  condemn the action by the  Ministry of Forests in disbanding the present Tetrahedron  LRUP and the breaking down  of due process; and that the  SCRD board request the presentation by an official of the  Ministry of Forests to explain  exactly what has happened to  the Tetrahedron LRUP process;  what is going to happen to the  Tetrahedron logging deferral;  and the meaning of the proposed boundary definition by the  Ministry of Forests."  "The LRUP was a process  that was working," commented  Frith. "It was the community  coming to grips with the problems that exist and finding a  mechanism to create consensus,  and that's what LRUP's are  supposed to be about.  "The way that this was  handled just astounded me. He  (Mountain) was at this table just  a few days before when he  could have informed us of the  need for change or discussed  with us whal Ihe reaction in the  community would be. It was  done in a highly cavalier  fashion... You jusl wonder  what you can believe of what  comes from the Ministry of  Forests. There doesn't seem to  be any credibility."  Supporting Frith's comments, Director Jim Gurney added, "When Mr. Mountain announced lhat he was going to  form an LRUP he came first to  the Regional District before he  made the public announcement  and asked for our support.  "The Board gave him thai  support. He has now changed  the rules in mid-stream with no  consultation... Il is inappropriate that he should have  sought our support at one lime  and then changed things in the  middle without consulting us."  There was unanimous agreement from the Board as they  passed Gurney's motion lo  write a letter to Mountain expressing strong disapproval of  his actions.

VON SAO   TOLL FREE 526-6880  coalition calls the water export  issue "a matter of drastic importance to the future of the  Strait of Georgia and the nation  of Canada".  According lo experts consulted by SGSA, there are  serious concerns about the implications of bulk water exports  under international law,  specifically GATT and the Free  Trade Agreement. SGSA warns  that "the export of bulk water  may affect Canadian sovereignly for years lo come, and have  serious effects on domestic access to water supplies by Canadian farmers and industry."  Potential environmental impacts listed by SGSA include the  possible transportation of  undesirable organisms in ballast  water, changes in the salinity of  BC's coastal inlets, destruction  of salmon habitat, and damage  to the oceanic microlayer near  Pendrell Sound, BC's "oyster-  nursery".  SGSA sponsored a major  public conference on "The  State of the Strait" in Nanaimo  last February, attended by over  300 representatives of community groups from Pugei  Sound to Campbell River and  Powell River. The issue of bulk  water exports was first raised at  the conference by Chief Robert  Thomas of the Nanaimo Indian  Band, and concerns were  echoed by many other SGSA  members.

At  last week's council meeting Alderman Margaret Morrison  listed Ihe agencies which Gibsons will be supporting: Sea  Cavalcade will receive $1000; Chamber of Commerce,  $11,000; the Elphinstone Museum, $1200; Gibsons  Library, $12,500; and Travel Sunshine Coast will receive  $1500 if the other municipalities contribute similar  amounts.  Under the miscellaneous category: Pitch-In BC, $225;  Victim/Witness Assistance Program, $400; Breakaway,  $500. There is a total of $1375 left in 'the kitty' to  distribute to groups that may apply for help during the  budget year.  TOWING IN THE TOWN  Walt's Automotive has received the contract to tow cars  on municipal property. According to the agreement,  Walt's will charge $25 for towing and $6.50 per day impounding fee. The only other bidder on the contract offered identical rates, but is located outside the town boundaries.  HAZMOBILE  The Ha/mobile will be coming to the Sunshine Coast  November 8 to 10, and Gibsons Council will be coordinating with the Regional District to set up a collection  point on the south end of the Coast for toxic substances  which may be sitting in basements and garages around the  area. But council also wants to know where these  substances will end up. Included in a motion to begin  organizing the pick up, Gibsons Council will be writing to  the Hazardous Waste Management program asking what  locations have been chosen for the toxic dump sites.  New executive  for NDP  constituency  Eighty New Democrats met  at Greenecourt Hall in Sechelt  to elect a new executive for the  Powell River Sunshine Coast  Constituency .Association on  Sunday, May 5.  The meeting also received a  written report detailing an extremely active year from candidate Howard White, who was  attending a provincial candidates and caucus meeting in  Vancouver.  Gibsons resident Bill Forst  was elected President with  Ward Graham of Powell River  taking the Vice-President's position. Also elected were Leslie  Graham, secretary; Shirley  Hall, treasurer; Gina Aduono,  membership secretary; Judy  Wilson, provincial council  delegate; Brenda DeGraag,  alternate council delegate and  federal riding representatives  Brin Wilson and Sylvia  Woodsworth.  David and Goliath  by Sftiart Burnsedt  Can corporations be made to  pay if it is proven they have  ruined the livelihood of a single  individual? Former Gibsons  crab fisherman Danny Gagnier  hopes for an answer in the affirmative as he battles both Canadian Forest Products (Canfor)  and Western Pulp Inc. in a Vancouver courtroom in an ongoing trial that could last for the  next six weeks.  Two years ago Gagnier was  earning a living crab fishing in  Howe Sound, selling his catch  to local Gibsons markets, and  tourists on the Government  Wharf. But, as of June 1989,  the federal government ordered  the complete closure of Howe  Sound to crab rishing. me  order followed a partial closure  announced in November 1988.  In his court case, Gagnier accuses Canfor and Western Pulp  of responsibility for the closures  as a direct result of their  negligence. He has charged  them with "Failing to exercise  reasonable care to avoid the  Hitting the  hold: The  Alec Will story  by Peter Trower  "I remember working with  Wimpy at the Terminal Dock  one time.

Although Ala' knew of no instance where a man had actually  drowned in the grain, he  acknowledged that there was  always the chance of this occurring. Once it very nearly happened to him.  "The hold on this particular  ship was just about full and I  decided to head up top. There  wasn't much room left and I  was sort of crawling out under  the coaming. All of a sudden,  the goddamn grain started coming again. No one had given any  signal���the guy on the chutes  must have been daydreaming.  Qnyhow, I figured this must be  the way I was going to die. The  space was too narrow for me to  even turn around. All I could do  was pull off my mask and holler  for help. Luckily, the guys  behind me were right on the  ball. They grabbed my legs and  yarded me the Hell back to safety. It sure threw a scare into me.  I really gave that careless chute-  operator a blast when we got  out of the hold!"  The years passed. World War  II came and went. Alec, a  waterfront veteran now, stuck  with the dockwork. The Union  was solidly established and conditions on the waterfront were  improving by the year. The  Shipping Federation no longer  ruled with an iron fist.  "I remember after the War,  Canadian Stevedoring needed  some experienced men to start  loading grain ships out of  Prince Rupert. Ten of us went  up. I was still siderunning, of  course. The crews we had were  made up of completely green  men and a lot of them were nervous about getting buried in the  grain. I tried to reassure them  there was little danger of this.  Well, I figured I'd got them  pretty much calmed down on  this score but the minute the  grain started coming, the whole  works of them panicked and  climbed out of the hold. We  had to start all over again and  just play it by ear. There were  taxi-drivers, fishermen, loggers  and God knows what all else.  We had quite a time trying to  break them in. Things were really rough moneywise in Rupert,  that winter. When we went to  the beer parlours, we were  treated like Vancouver big-shois  because we had cash."

The level of the grain rose  with considerable speed by this  method and it was necessary for  the men in the hold to ride it up  by moving their feet frequently.  "There was this guy named  Hatfield who was a slow clumsy  sort of character. He could  never get the knack of walking  up with the wheat. One time,  when no one was watching him,  he got damn near completely  buried and we had to hunt for  him. I think they had to can him  in the end. Guys like Hatfield  just weren't cut out for the  grain boats."  But Alec Will was most certainly cut out for the grain boats  and he worked them until the  day of his retirement in 1970.  Even after that, he still often  went down to the docks to chat  with old friends and new. The  waterfront, through the bad  years and the good, had been  his life. As he once told me,  quite simply: "I enjoyed the  work."  Epitaph For Alec Will  Thai small articulate man  who was more alive than most  lay down by Ihe Black Tusk  trail ���  In his sleep became  Ihe mountain  Six hikers carried him out  a burden beyond first aid  leaving his laughter there  bequeathed lo the alpine  summer  In Ihe City his docks toil on  for Ihe wailing stregm-bound  ships -  a new generation of hold-rats  banters to work on the  waterfront  Somebody whispers his name  in the lowers of wheat where the  shovels clacked  and one-armed Charlie Chatters  laps out a ghost-hook salute  He's struck to the telling now  along with The Terrible Turk  Nannygoat   Coffee-an'Joe  Wimpy and Coalheaver Smith  There will be no more galley-  slave holds  or terrible Terminal docks -  he has battened his final -  he has sweated his lasl hard  cargo.  ta  SUNSHINE COAST  HOME SUPPORT  SOCIETY  Enter Your Duck Now!  1.0.M.C.

In addition, Gagnier says the  mills exceed the amount of  discharge stipulated in their permits and continued to use their  existing production methods  when "other suitable substitutes  were available."  Gagnier's lawyer, David  Sutherland, said in court May 6,  that he will use a process known  as "fingerprinting" to prove the  mills had, for the past 20 years  or more, dumped raw effluent  directly into Howe Sound in  "enormous quantities."  Through fingerprinting, a  marine expert can employ tidal  flows, and analysis of sediment  content, to determine the source  of dioxins in the Sound.  Sutherland told the court the  technology for treating the effluent the mills are accused of  producing has been available  since the 1970's.  The lawyer for Canfor,  Leonard Doust, said the problem of toxic waste was not  identified in the early days of  Canfor's Port Mellon operation, and the company has since  done extensive, multi-million  dollar renovations to upgrade  the mill and eliminate���as much  as possible���the discharge of  noxious substances. "Our mill  is now state of the art in the  world in relation to the  discharge of effluent," he said.  Sutherland contends it is no  defence for the mills to claim  they had no understanding of  the effects of past effluent dumping. He said Gagnier would  also seek punitive damages.

A memorial tea was held at Greenecourt, Thursday, May 7, for  Lconlda Leatherdale who passed away Monday, April 29. She  formed the Canadian Needlework Guild and taught her craft to  the Sechelt group who did this Heritage Needlework piece which  is on display in Ihe Shadow Baux Gallery. The work took three  years lo complete. The Leonlda Leatherdale Award is presented  annually, and is a most prestigious achievement. Mrs. Leather-  dale came to Ihe Sunshine Coast from Winnipeg where a library  has been named in her honour. Jod Johnstone photo  Regional District News  RAPID TRANSIT ALREADY EXISTS  It appears that the Sunshine Coast already has in effect  a rapid transit system into downtown Vancouver, though  no one has paid much attention.  Directors noted that recent changes in the West Van  Blue Bus scheduling that coordinate bus timetables with  ferry sailings make it possible to get into the city in little  more than an hour, at a very reasonable cost.  Directors approved a motion by Director Jeremy Frith  that a letter of thanks be sent to BC Transit for their consideration in this matter.  "It is important to stress," commented Director Brett  I IcGillivray, "that this is a fast commuter service. It has  been achieved at a fraction of the cost (of any other)."  "And it's important to note that this is an all-weather  service," added Frith. "It allows for commuting on a daily  basis."  MARCORP TRANSFER WRAPPED UP  The last details of the transfer of the Marcorp Development property from the Regional District to the Town of  Gibsons were tied up at the last Regional District meeting.  "This project is now at the point where it can be turned  over to the Town of Gibsons," said Director Jim Gurney  as he noted some conditions of the transfer.  Still to be resolved are agreements with the Department  of Highways on matters of highway access to the property;  landscaping requirements; adequate provision for future  sidewalks along Highway 101; and certain modifications  of building designs where some unsightly features are not  adequately screened.  "These are u very large set of drawings," said Gurney,  "and we haven't had time to adequately digest the details.  If things get missed, there will be further applications and  they should be picked up.  "The time period for this development permit should be  set at six months. If they don't use it within that time, the  process should be gone through again.  Sunshine Coast  'ICES   DIREO"  HOME IMPROVEMENTS  MARINE SERVICES  SUNSHINE KITCHEN  .

Whal will our district be like  in 5-10 years? How will we  work together? How will we  make decisions? What do we  ihink an educated person is?  Whal is expected of me in my  role as a .'  Today, in our school system,  these are some of the fas-  i cjnating questions that are being  presented to our School Board,  CUPE (Canadian Union of  Public Employees), parents,  SCTA. (Sunshine Coast  Teacher's Association), students SCAA (Sunshine Coast  Administrators' Association),  and district staff. From these  questions, or from others not  yet asked, future educational  directions and priorities will be  identified and used to facilitate  the continued growth of the  people of our varied communities.  A District Steering Committee representing all of the above  groups has been established  (January 1991) to survey the  district and to articulate vision,  ' a dream, for the future. From  this vision, mission statements  will be built, mission statements  being a set of practical  statements that give direction to  the vision or to the work that  has to be done.  The focus on a collaborative  process for gathering information and making decisions, concerning this change project, is to  try to more appropriately  enable, value and use the input  of all of those involved. A major challenge the steering committee faces in using this type of  process is in the task of facilitating, sorting and sifting a  large amount of input. In order  to do this meaningfully students, parents, community  members and educators will  have to work very closely  together as both participants  and as leaders in a major change  project.  A rough product will hopefully be presented to the School  Board by late June (1991) or  early September (1991) and  from there more refining of the  positions can take place.

Nominations were to be  made lor a new seven  member council with elections to be held in mid-  June.  Gibsons was watching  the proceedings with an  eye for a possible Gibsons  restructuring but the idea  was not embraced by Areas  E and F taxpayers.  10 YEARS AGO  Director Harry Almond  reports to the Regional  Board that the Sechelt Indian Band Is prepared to  give a lump sum ol  $195,000 as a connection  fee to the existing sewer  system, despite objections  from Director/Alderman  Charles Lee.  Sixty people attended  the first public meeting to  discuss the Area E Settlement Plan last week.  Len George's Indian  Dancers proved crowd  pleasers at the Indian  Heritage Day held at the  elementary school in  Sechelt last week.  15 YEARS AGO  An estimated 500 people  jammed the Langdale ferry  terminal to protest the recent announcement that  ferry rates will increase and  resident cards would be  discontinued. Both the 1:30  sailing of the 'Sunshine  Coast Queen' and the 3 pm  sailing ol the 'Langdale  Queen' left the docks practically empty as cars,  trucks and demonstrators  blocked the loading lanes.  25 YEARS AGO  At a meeting on Tuesday  in Sechelt a regional committee was formed including 20 members. Eight  electoral areas were defined in the district from Port  Mellon to Jervis Inlet.  Elphinstone Pioneer  Museum Society announces the official opening of its museum In the  Gibsons Municipal Hall in  Gibsons.  35 YEARS AGO  Gibsons tax notices are  now in the mail and the mill  rate this year is the same  as last year���16 mills.  Glen Wicklun, an  Elphinstone High School  student, has been selected  one of the three delegates  from Canada to attend the  Junior Red Cross international convention in  Maryland this summer.  45 YEARS AGO  Egmont clam diggers are  working fast during these  favourable tides and a lot of  fine clams are coming into  the Coop.

For Ret  ADVERTISING  FOR TENANCY  New British Columbia legislation  prohibits advertising which  discriminates in the rental ot pro  perty. For example a person who  stipulates "no children" as a  condition of rental would be in  violation ot the Family Status and  Ihe Human Rights Acts. The  landlord who places the adver  tisement and the newspaper  which publishes it would both be  in contravention ol the legislation  and could have a complaint filed  agamsl them. The Coast Nawi  will therefore not accept such  discriminatory ads. TFN  Why Pay Rent?

Sechelt Council  COMMITTEE NIGHTS CANCELLED  There will be no more monthly committee nights for  Sechelt Council, according to Mayor Nancy MacLarty.  MacLarty, who made the announcement at last week's  final committee gathering, said the concept had not proven  successful and anticipated public turn-out was not forthcoming.  MacLarty said the idea of the committee meetings  ���held every second Wednesday of the month���was to  allow the public to participate in the various committee  discussions and keep apprised of council's chosen course  of action.  "Most nights the council (seven members) outnumbers  the public and the press," she said, "I guess it just wasn't  meant to be."  Regular council meetings will still be held the first and  third Wednesday of each month.  ROCKWOOD RESERVE PROPOSED  Mayor Nancy MacLarty will recommend to council that  Rockwood Lodge become a "reserve" within the  municipality of Sechelt.  Making the announcement at the May 8 committee  meetings, MacLarty said she would like to see Rockwood  reserved for its current use and appealed to other council  members to support her effort.  "Right now council, on a whim, can decide to sell the  land, cancel the uses that are there and allow a hotel to go  in.  "This (proposal) wouldn't be the same as dedicating the  area as a park," MacLarty went on, "Once an area has  been dedicated a park, that dedication cannot be lifted."  MUNICIPAL EMPLOYEES SEEK MORE CLOUT  "The non-management staff of the District of Sechelt is  in the process of organizing themselves into an association  under the Industrial Relations Act," Alderman Doug Reid  told the Coast News at the May 8 committee meetings,  "It's a form of unionization...  "They will want to collectively deal with us as a council,  they want to speak with one voice."  The chairman of the proposed association, and  municipal employee Judy Steele, informed the Coast News  the decision to form an association was not a result of any  conflict with Sechelt Council members, but rather as a way  of obtaining focus on thought and solidarity among non-  managemen employees when dealing with the council.  "We (Sechelt employees) are a varied group," Steele explained, "We have office personnel, seasonal employees,  and public service workers, and right now it's hard for us  to reach a concensus when it comes to dealing with council."  She said the new association would contain a representative for each of the aforementioned groups, as well as a  chairman and a secretary.  "We've had full cooperation from council so far," she  said, "and we don't expect that to change."  Mayor Nancy MacLarty, aside from voicing full support of the municipal employees uniting, indicated she  might have helped in germinating the idea.  "The staff had a sort of loose association already," said  MacLarty, "and I asked why they didn't make it official.

Jan Bryant, chairperson of  Outreach, told the Coast News  that the dance will feature live  music provided by Michael  Lacoste of Inner Ear in Roberts  Creek, with some assistance  from the teens themselves and  other musicians.  The Outreach Society, started  last fall, received a $10,000  Youth Advisory grant, as well  ���as a $2000 grant from Coast  Cable Vision. "But whal we've  been waiting for," said Bryant,  "is a space of our own."  A promised facility did nol  materialize, "so we jusl decided  to go ahead on our own," said  Bryant. "We've tentatively  booked the Kinsman hut...so  the kids will know there's  something to do every Friday  night."  Bryant explained thai  Outreach is an organization jusl  for teens, and is not affiliated  with any school or church  group. Initially she sees the Kin  hut as a drop-in centre on Friday nights, with videos and  music, but hopes that eventually  the "teens themselves will  decide whal they want lo do."  There were no correct entries for list week's Guess Where.  Therefore, a prize of $10 will be awarded to the first correct entry  drawn which locates the above.
