 LEGISLAWEUBRARY i'1'       A  Parliament Buildings If  Victoria, B.C. V8V 1X4 ' ���  9  The Sunshine  Published on the Sunshine Coast    25'per copy on news stands    January 14,1991       Volume 45      Issue 2  Winter turns Coast  into wonderland  Residents cope courageously with storms  by Joel Johnstone  It was a winter wonderland  last week as nearly 80 centimetres of snowfall plugged up  secondary roads, shut down  schools, and postponed regular  business for many residents and  services on the Sunshine Coast.  The weight of snow, compounded by rain late Tuesday,  put power out up and down the  Coast from Port Mellon to Egmont. As of Friday, power was  not online on Gambler and  Keats Islands and areas in and  around Middlepoint, said  District Manager Wayne Turner  who summed up the week by  saying "the whole bloody Coast  was out at one time or  another."  It was the second time this  winter that BC Hydro had to  bring up contract crews from  the Lower Mainland to help  local crews handle the  workload, which was difficult,  in many cases, to pin down.  The increased weight created  by rain on snow caused a lot of  bending branches on trees to  touch lines, Turner said, and  when the snow fell away the  problem would disappear causing crews to scratch their heads  as they worked their way out  from substation to substation.  For Capilano Highways it  was another heavy work week  and a tired Road Foreman,  John Thorn, declared most  main roads back in full service  as of Thursday. But the rigours  of pulling 14 hour shifts in bad  driving conditions for even their  Sure it was inconvenient, but by and large the Sunshine Coast coped well with last week's wlntery  weather.

"I'm  tired and so are all my men,"  Thorn said. "We had difficulties with a lot of roads."  As of Thursday, crews were  still working to clear secondary  roads, some already partially  passable due to warmer weather  changing the precipitation from  snow to rain. No major  flooding was reported, but  many drains had to be cleared  of ice and snow in town streets  and there was the occasional  fair-sized puddle to avoid.  Highway 101 remained open  for the duration of last week's  weather, but conditions were  bad enough to cause acting  Superintendent for School  District 46, Terry Corcoran, to  close schools Monday afternoon.  "Monday everyone was supposedly at school, even though  the buses weren't running. As  morning progressed we became  concerned about kids getting  back home and staff getting  home safely," he said.  Local RCMP and school bus  service operators advised Corcoran on conditions till Thursday morning when students  finally had their extended holiday season brought to an end  and classes and buses resumed  their regular schedules.  For the big buses of Maverick  Coach Lines it was business as  usual throughout the week, but  Monday the Sunshine Coast  Minibus had to bump some  scheduled runs and stick mainly  to Highway 101. Sorties onto  other roadways "are up to the  driver's discretion," said  Minibus Manager Rosina Giles,  as was the determination to stay  in services as long as possible  Monday.  "The drivers know better  than the managers in the office,  and after 11:30 in the morning  we shut down for the day" as  conditions on some routes such  as Gower Point Road and  Redrooffs Road were viewed as  being unsafe.  Though regular bus service  resumed Tuesday, air service  was grounded till Thursday  morning. Tyee Air didn't get  off the ground till the weather  front had completed its change  from snow to rain. Even then,  flights were local only, the farthest destination outbound being a Jervis Inlet shuttle flight,  said Office Manager Shirley  Sommerfield.  Surprisingly enough, tow  truck companies claim no real  increase in business during the  first half of the week. Narrow  and steep driveways and roadways covered in foot-deep snow  made rescue not only difficult  and unprofitable for the sturdiest four-wheel-drive, but, according to Abex Towing, a lot  of people didn't bother to call  in. Why? "Because in weather  like this people just don't  move."  For Sergeant Ed Hill of the  Gibsons RCMP that's just fine.  "With the exception of  December 26, we really haven't  had a bad lime of it at all.

On January 4, Planner Rob  Buchan met with representative  from Marcorp and at the  January 9 council meeting he  told aldermen that "it was impressed on the applicants that  their new shopping mall could  have an impact on the community at large, regardless of  boundary extension.  "This impact will be particularly evident in the areas of  "It!  water and sewer services and access from Highway 101 and  from Payne Road."  The matter was discussed further at the January 10 Planning  Committee meeting. Committee  Chairman John McNevin told  members that consideration was  being given to the "advisability  of remodelling the intersection  now, rather than waiting till we  get to the final stages.  "There's no traffic light to  break the pattern of traffic, and  in spite of what the Highways  Department says, we all know  you can't get in and out of that  (other) mall.  "It's possible that the  developers can do that  themselves. We are just trying  to find out exactly what can be  done. It's our opinion that the  intersection (at Pratt Road) is  already a hazard.  "The matter of water and fire  protection is already being dealt  with. We are concerned that the  development would bring the  capability of our sewers up to  capacity which would be an inhibiting factor in anyone wanting to develop housing. We  have asked for a staff report on  what sewage capacity we have in  our system so we will know how  many housing units could be  serviced as opposed to mall  development. We may have to  look at altering our existing  system and what that would  cost."  Dayton and Knight, the  town's engineers, are currently  It's a disservice"  Green box delivery  preparing a report on the impact of the development on  Gibsons. "The information in  that report is very important to  us," declared McNevin. "This  problem is far deeper than we  expected."  Another meeting has been arranged at the Ministry of  Highways office in Burnaby  which will be attended by  representatives from Highways,  Regional District Planning  Chairman Brett McGillivray  and planner Steve Olmstead,  Traffic Engineer Paul Buntin,  representatives from Marcorp,  Gibsons Planner Rob Buchan  and Alderman John McNevin.  "I am pleased to note acceptance from the Regional  District," said Buchan. "I take  this to be an indication that the  Sunshine Coast Regional  District continues to identify the  Marcorp project as a situation  of mutual difficulty that must  be addressed cooperatively."  Historic home  Impending sale of the 'old Inglis house' on Highway 101 in  Lower Gibsons his raised concerns for its fate. Rumour has it  that the building will be either demolished or moved to make  way for a new condominium.  The historic old home, which has not officially been  declared a heritage site, was built in the early days of Gibsons  by the well known pioneer, Dr. Inglis.  Anglican prayer vigil  St. Bartholomew's Anglican Church is holding a  candlelight prayer vigil for peace, Sunday, January 13  through Tuesday, January 15. The Church will remain open  Sunday until 8 pm, Monday 8 am to 8 pm, and Tuesday, 8  am to 2pm.  Know that you will be praying with the church community.  Partshoners will be committed to praying every hour  throughout the 48 hours, beginning at 2 pm Sunday and concluding 2 pm Tuesday.  by Stuart Burnslde  "It's not a service, it's a  disservice," lamented Alderman  Bob Wilson at Wednesday  night's Sechelt Council meeting.  Wilson was referring to a  portion of the present mail  delivery program that forces  many Sechelt residents to collect  their mail from the green boxes  located along the roads.  Wilson said the boxes are  often located in areas that might  prove dangerous to the public.  He cited inadequate parking  and poor lighting as the main  problems and questioned the  legality of placing the public in  such potential danger.  When aldermen agreed  unanimously with Wilson's  views, he suggested that each  member of Council send letters  voicing this dissatisfaction to  both the Post Master General  and Ray Skelly, the Regional  MP.  The question of the legality of  the post boxes arose again the  following   day  when,   at  a  meeting, between the Council  and the Department of  Highways, Mayor Nancy  MacLarty asked Tucker For-  sythe, Division Manager for the  department, if Highways was  supposed to be consulted by  Canada Post when the Post Office decides on locations for the  green boxes.  Forsythe assured MacLarty  that it was indeed incumbent on  the postal service to gain approval from the Department of  Highways before setting up the  boxes, but that the Post Office  usually chose to overlook this  procedure.  When asked by MacLarty if  he would be willing to add his  support in the form of a letter,  for the council's position in the  matter, Forsythe answered in  the affirmative.  Council, already supported  by the SCRD, will also seek to  solicit a letter from the RCMP  containing their views concern*  ing the possibility of danger to  the public in the present rural  mail system.  When contacted by the Coast  News, Helen Wigard, Post  Mistress for the Sechelt Post  Office, acknowledged the possible safety hazard of the current  rural mail delivery and admitted  that the Department of  Highways was rarely consulted  by the regional Post Offices  when deciding where to place  the boxes.  Wigard added that the demand for new boxes was growing (27 additions servicing 270  people last year) and there are  simply no really good places to  put them. She said the demand  for new green boxes stems from  the increased rates (now $50 a  year) for a post office box rental  in the main Post Offices.  People living on rural routes  serviced by the Post Office will  get their mail free from the  green boxes, but if they prefer  to collect their mail from the  Post Office, they will pay the  $30 a year rental.  Wigard pointed out that that  is less than $1 a week.  Nan Marieau of Langdale won $36,000 last week on a ticket bought at Dockside Pharmacy.  ���Joel Johnelone pholo  Serving the Sunshine Coast since 1945 Coast News, January 14,1991  comment:.  Easy pickings?  The closest thing to a "crime wave" experienced by the  Sunshine Coast, an outbreak of robbery and vandalism  which includes a solid half-dozen break-ins at Sechelt's  Stedman's store alone, to say nothing of the brazen looting  of the Gibsons Post Office, should give all of us pause.  What exactly is going on here in our paradisiacal corner  of the world? Is the recession finally hitting BC to the extent that ordinarily good citizens have turned to crime to  make ends meet? Is this phenomenon merely another  cyclical explosion attributable to restless and bored youth,  seeking attention and cheap thrills?  We think not. Police experts and psychologists  alike���police psychologists, certainly���would be the first  to suggest that crime rises in direct response and proportion to the odds against being caught. Yes, there are many  motivating factors at play when one considers crime and  ciminals in general, but perhaps the most compelling  reason for committing a crime���assuming you care about  being apprehended���is the belief that you can get away  with it.  And along the Sunshine Coast the belief that one's  chances of not being caught committing crimes is far more  than some happy imagining in the larcenous mind of some  would-be thief���it is a reality.  In a nutshell, police protection along the Sunshine Coast  is simply not adequate, and this issue must be addressed  and corrected before the development and concomitant  population influx predicted for this area moves from the  trickle to the steady stream phase.  This is not to call into question in any way the efforts,  methods, or quality of personnel of the RCMP, to whom  we on the Coast look for our law enforcement. Indeed,  were each and every officer imbued with the mythical  qualities of Sergeant Preston of the Yukon, Trail Bay  Sports might still have been hit over the holidays.  No, it is not the quality of our peace officers that is involved here���it is the quantity.  More officers working round-the-clock shifts would be  costly, but the alternative is more of the same. Until  changes are instituted which will establish a creditable  deterrent, those���probably few���who are currently  responsible for this "crime wave" will continue to plunder  at will, operating on the sound premise that the odds are in  their favour.  The Coast News is only too aware of the root causes of  crime, and while they well might form the basis for a  future editorial or feature, today we choose to focus solely  on what is happening now and what this might well lead  to.  A suggestion  Elsewhere in the paper we carry a brief report on the  fact that Elphie's Cabaret served a suspension in early  January. An appeal against the suspension was  withdrawn.  Is it not the case that the solution to the chronic difficulties with the Cabaret is in the hands of town council?  If the hours were altered to match other establishments  most of the troubles would be eliminated. Can this council  agree and implement what has, always been a simple solution to an ongoing problem?  -from our files ���  We Remember WhjSn  S YEARS AGO  Despite the recent closure of many sawmills In the  province, Bayslde Sawmills has gone ahead and built a  new sawmill and planer near Port Mellon.

SUBSCRIPTION RATES  Ceneda: 1 Yeer IK;�� Monlhi no; Foreign 1 Year M0  Dark thoughts  on a grey day  On a rainy, foggy Friday I  was tangled in the maze which  Surrey has become, peering at  near invisible street signs over  and around piles of discoloured  melting snow in a nightmare of  Kafkaesque proportions trying  to locale an all-important computer repair man in that bizarre  example of unplanned urban  sprawl.  1 tell you, folks, I have driven  across Mexico City with less difficulty than I had negotiating  my way around Surrey.  On Ihe national radio Canadians on the CBC's GzovVskj  Show were speaking their com  cerns about the imminent, apparent war in the Persian Gulf.  They were arranging forums in  Lelhbridge lo express their concerns about the subservience of  Canada in this most dangerous  development, subservient to Ihe  foreign policy of the USA: they  were wearing poppies for peace  in Wakefield, Quebec, and they  were holding rallies in Halifax  and Vancouver to protest  Canada's supine involvement.  "Too little, too late," I  thought. "Where were these  people in August?"  The Conservative government is going to recall parlia  ment so that the elected  representatives of the people  can have their say. It was  estimated that Parliament  would be recalled on Thursday,  two days after the war may have  started.  At the Coast News we have  been consistent in our opposition to a military solution. It  doesn't seem like an especially  good idea to try to play high  stakes poker with a man as  uninhibited by humanitarian  scruples as Saddam Hussein appears to be. It doesn't seem like  Hr now; it didn't seem like it to  us last August.  Of course the United Nations  cannot allow a tiny member  stale to be overrun at the whim  of a despot. But Iraq's is a narrowly based economy and it is  generally agreed in the respected  journals of international opinion that the economic sanctions are working well and  quickly. Why this rush to do  bailie with a madman? Starve  his people long enough and they  will get rid of him.  In our last editorial comment  on the matter just before  Christmas we pointed to the  fact  that  the  former  Prime  Minister of the United  Kingdom, Ted Heath, who has  long experience in Middle East  diplomacy, was arguing before  the United Slates Congress that  even a victory over Iraq would  lead lo a nightmare need lo occupy the defeated country, a  most expensive procedure in  blood and wealth. And the  longer such an occupation went  on the more Arab resentment  would grow at foreign occupation of their soil.  Bui wars have an unpleasant  habit of not going exactly as  foreseen. The First World War  was going to be over by that  first Christmas of 1914; Vietnam dragged on for years  despite the most soptiisticated  superiority in air power on the  part of the Americans; the Russian army could not subdue tiny  Afghanistan and finally gave up  and went home.  Iraq is armed to the teeth  with the most sophisticated  weaponry sold to Saddam Hussein, just as much the despot  when we were selling him arms  as he is today standing ready to  use them against us. Iraq may  not be crushed as easily as the  proponents of battle predict.  "Yeah," I thought sourly as I  managed a combination of  peering and glaring at the traffic  chaos that was Surrey in the  snow, "the democracies compete to make hundreds of  millions of dollars selling Iraq  weapons then we spend  thousands of millions trying to  prevent him from using them.  It's a wonderful world."  This could be an extraordinarily expensive exercise in  unnecessary bluster, costing un-  lold thousands of lives and  could bring the economies of  the world crashing down  spreading misery and suffering  far beyond the battle lines.  I listened to the expressions  of alarm being voiced on my car  radio. I cursed the mystery that  Surrey presented for me. And I  thought of a book by historian  Barbara Tuchman called The  March of Folly in which she  traced through the centuries,  from the Greek war against  Troy to the Vietnam war, the  tendency of governments to  wage wars which were hopelessly against their self interest.  It seems likely that we are  about to add a terrible addition  to that historic and tragic march  of folly.  Of a writer in  pain and purgatory  When I was aboul 10 growing  up in the Toronto suburb of  North York, I was once  targeted���albeit briefly���by our  neighbourhood bully.  His name was Roman. He  was a belligerent and beefy kid  of about 13, built like a fireplug  and full of that sadistic bravado  which characterizes the bully-  coward personality type.  One day while I was walking  home with my little brother  Kenny, Roman appeared out of  nowhere (something bullies and  bushwhackers arc worn to do),  and in no uncertain terms promised that he was going to  "get" me.  Because Roman was infamous for the extortion and  terrorizing of little kids like me,  I took his threat seriously. For a  week I slunk around my normally benign turf on tip-toes,  reacting to errant shadows and  aggressive footsteps wherever I  went. I stayed indoors more  than usual and, when I did venture   out,   I   didn't   venture  far���unless I was fortunate  enough to be accompanied by  one of my few older (and bigger) friends.  I haven't thought about this  nasty, traumatizing experience  in many years, but I know exactly what prompted its re-  emergence a couple of weeks  ago.  Salman Rushdie. For those of  you who haven't been conscious  for Ihe last two years, allow me  lo bring you up to dale.  Rushdie is a Moslem raised in  India but transplanted to  England as a very young man.  He is also a writer of no small  reknown, particularly in his  adopted homeland. In 1988 a  book of his was published  which was destined to change  his life in a way no feeling  human being would wish upon  his proverbial worst enemy.  Entitled The Satanic Verses,  it contained certain key passages  and portions which some  Moslems took immediate and  irrevocable offense to. Apparently having difficulty grasping the finer points of literary  satire, certain Iranian clerics, including the late Ayatollah  Ruhollah Khomeini, decided  that something must be done to  avenge Salman Rushdie's outrageous sacrilege.  They pulled a "Roman" on  poor Rushdie. Only they went  my boyhood tormentor one belter: the Ayatollah and the boys  wouldn't simply "gel" Salman  Rushdie, they'd gel him and kill  him.  Understandably, Salman  Rushdie went into hiding, and  has remained under what  amounts to a self-imposed  "house arrest" (in various locations in England) ever since. His  marriage has disintegrated during Rushdie's first Iwo years of  going lo ground, and his social  life has, for all intents and purposes, gone (he way of Ihe buffalo. The ultimate irony is that a  book which propelled Salman  Rushdie into literary prominence and celebrity has forced him lo shun the very fruits of  his creativity one might expect  him to be savouring.  Last week, the saga of  Salman Rushdie took a grotesque turn. Obviously worn-out,  weary, and psychically scarred  beyond comprehension, Rushdie did the unthinkable��� at  least insofar as his supporters  are concerned.  He issued a statement embracing Islam, opposing the  publication or The Satanic  Verses in paperback (something  he'd been insisting upon up until this point), and, heresy of  heresies,   Salman   Rusdie  re  nounced his own literary creation which had gotten him into  such a terrible bind in the first  place. Or, at least, he disavowed  those parts of The Satanic  Verses which "...insult the Prophet Mohammed or cast aspersions upon Islam."  Bui if Rushdie thought that a  niea culpa of such generous  proportions would result in having his death sentence rescinded,  he pathetically misjudged the  peace-loving, God-fearing  Islamic scourges who'd made  Rushdie "Most Wanted" in  Islam to begin with. They as  much as said that even should  poor Salman Rushdie repent  and become second only to  Mohammed himself in terms of  earthly piety���Rushdie remains  a dead man.  Oh sure, it's easy to put  Rushdie down for "copping  out" on his principles, for saying, in effect, "Life before  honour."  It's easy, that is, unless you  arc able to vicariously experience the terror of Salman  Rushdie's moment-to-moment  existence these past two years.  To imagine what he must be going through.  I can do this���thanks to  Roman, my personal bully  guru.  Your community's  AWARD-WINNING  newspaper  '"���"���WC < ��� ������ ������'-��� ' (LtttiiA. to- the, CdJtot  Coast News, January 14,1991  Editor:  To abandon economic sanctions in favour of a military attack is to play right into the  hands of Hussein in the gulf  crisis.  An attack on Iraq will make a  martyr of the Iraqi president.  The bombing of innocent men,  women and children, which is  sure to result from an all-out attack, will confirm once again  before the entire world that  Americans are infested with the  same lack of concern for justice  and human life which they find  so repugnant in their opponents. The global ecological  disaster caused by war in the oil  fields will affect everyone.  Some hawkish politicians  claim to be on high moral  ground. "We are only acting to  impose the rule of law which  was broken by Iraq's naked  aggression," they declare. A  few years ago Canada and the  US could have stopped the Indonesian invasion of East  Timor simply by calling off the  dogs.  Sanctions  instead of  bloodshed  Instead it was business as  usual and large scale massacres  of innocent people followed. In  the '70s, the CIA backed a  military coup which overthrew  the democratically elected  government of Chile, murdering its president. In the '80s, the  US mined the Coast of  Nicaragua in flagrant violation  of international law and the  World Court.  The US can hardly claim to  occupy high ground when it  comes to respect for international order.  Canada's most important  contribution to world stability is  to provide a rational role model  for the US. Instead, Mulroney  is following Bush into the abyss  of      hypocritical      self-  righteousness  and   shallow  military masochism.  So why the rush to war?  Sanctions have been highly effective in bringing down the  seemingly immovable apartheid  regime in South Africa. The  dismantling of the Berlin wall  was largely the result of  economic forces. There is every  reason to believe that sanctions  will be successful in the long  run.  Both Mulroney and Bush  have been doing poorly on the  domestic front. Mulroney's  government is the most unpopular in Canadian history. A  war will divert public attention.  Now there will be a handy excuse for economic mismanagement and political failure.  There is a way we can all help  stop this mad rush to bloodshed. Please pick up your phone  and dial 1-800463-3696 to send  a telegram to Mulroney. Tell  him to give economic sanctions  a chance to work in the Middle  East.  Roger Lagasse  A (very) open letter to Mulroney  No real winners, only losers  Editor:  Well, thank goodness we've  got all this peace on earth good  will towards men baloney over  with. Now we can get on with  the next war.  It's unfortunate that Canada  is a small ill equipped country  when it comes to this war  business. If we had only spent  more of our taxes on military  armaments, we could have  more of the glory of it all. Then  we could also "kick ass" as  President Bush says from his  Oval Office where he will lay  out the game plan.  Sort of entertaining isn't it,  watching all the facts and  figures on the various weapons  of destruction that each side  has, the pompous generals and  their strategies, all on TV in  your own living room. Great  stuff!  It's especially interesting to  listen to the naive young men,  who are just itching on both  sides to charge into the valley of  death. Thankfully, it's all well  organized by the politicians and  the military. We have our 800  body bags on order and I'm  sure Mr. Bush has the White  House stacked to the rafters  with them.  But, will it all be so interesting? Will "kicking ass" be  looked upon with such enthusiasm when the aircrafts  start returning and the conveyor  belts roll out the thousands of  filled body bags and we begin to  see the tragic reality of this  human madness?  Is this a war to defend  democracy and our national  security, or is it a war about  money, a war over oil, a war for  the wealthy to be fought by the  poor? A conflict that could be  settled other ways.  Sometimes I think the world  is run by old jocks who were  bounced on their heads once too  often and present generations  learn nothing from past history.  Will the human race ever  learn that peace, love, generosity, understanding and compassion for each other might bring  better results and that the  military option when taken  leaves no real winners, only  losers.  If we do not develop new  ways of settling conflicts one  day, we may all be losers and  that day comes closer with each  passing year.  No, the mentality that Mr.  Bush and Mr. Hussein exhibit is  not what the world needs now.  I'm not sure whose ass needs to  be kicked, but it's definitely not  those of the thousands of young  men who are about to die. All  they want is to live a happy and  full life, and so they should.  But, then again, both sides  claim to be working in close  He welcomes GST?  Editor:  I welcome the GST, for it  reminds me and resolves me to  spend and make do with less  and less; to "simplify,  simplify;" to revel in 'small is  beautiful;" to delight in making  and growing it myself; to work  harder at becoming downwardly immobile; to commit myself  deeper to the informed and  underground economy; to trade  and barter; to get it from  mother earth instead of a store;  to practise survival skills I'm going to need anyway; to once  again "turn on, tune in, and  drop out;" to divorce myself  ever more from everything official; and to rejoice as 1 become  freer and freer from the system.  Peter Light  Yay, privatization  Editor:  During the past three weeks  the government's privatization  scheme was put to the test as far  as the travelling public is concerned.

With the festive season  behind us when most social  gatherings, family suppers,  church visits, children's concerts, radio and TV programs  were ruined by the spectre of  this diabolical and incomprehensible 'thing' that we were  all to face come January 1,  1991, we tried valiantly to be  good-natured and find some  meaning to and for it.  But today, when shopping  for a few necessary items of  food and toiletries to replace  our diminished supplies, we  discovered that there was a new  cost to a small carton of cream  (unless we bought no less than a  litre); our dry cleaning had gone  up by 7 per cent; aspirin and  bandaids had gone up but  mouthwash had gone down;  etc., ad finitum ridiculum, and  that the dispensers of these  items would be repaid by the  government for their astronomical costs whereas the con-  rTBT*  sumer has to pay the price of  your collected revenue.  It is not that the GST is the  worst of your "Machiavellian  Moves"���we could accept some  method of attempting to cut our  debts if it were not as unfair, incomprehensible and outright  ridiculous as this one���it just  happens to be the latest! How  does it equate with your insensitive judgement in hiring eight  more senators? With giving  yourself and all M.P.'s a hefty  raise (ergo increased pensions)  in a time of restraint and recession for the rest of us? For taking on 4000 new personnel to  explain this new tax, not to  mention the required checking  later?  We are even more disturbed,  by the gradual dismantling of  our beloved country by your  handling of the Meech Lake Accord and then blaming Clyde  Wells and Elijah Harper when  you could have eliminated the  "gamesmanship" and shown  some sincerity of purpose instead.  Nor are we happy with the  Free Trade Agreement and  subsequent loss of thousands of  jobs, or the concept of  privatization of crown corporations such as Petro Canada  which is actually making a profit, or the drastic cut-backs in  Via Rail and the CBC. both of  which are the essence of our  Canadianism.  We don't like the involvement of our defensive forces in  the Persian Gulf without just  cause or the consent of the majority. Nor can we find  justification for the creation of  fatuous commissions for the  sake of temporary appeasement.  Have you not observed during the course of your leadership, sir, the growth in mistrust  and disharmony between the  two founding cultures of our  nation, and the antagonism and  resentment of our native  peoples? Has "divide and conquer" become your sacred  trust?  These are sad times for  Canada, and it becomes more  and more apparent that this  government under your direction will go down in history as  one of our bleakest periods.  Thus it would not be the least  surprising if that proved to be  the end of the Conservative  Party as a viable, believable and  electable choice in this country  for all time.  Jo Cardinal!

Rita Johnston, Minister of  Transportation and Highways,  recently revealed that she had  received five submissions for  fast, passenger-only ferry service on the "Howe Sound run."  Companies bidding on the  project were asked to submit  based on the fact that "government will not provide a subsidy, ���  loan, or financial guarantee."  However, critics of the plan object that such items as the ferry  terminal, public parking, and  other inordinately large expenses would instantly render  the concept quasi-privatized at  best.  Johnston's statement claims  "the Howe Sound run (from  Gibsons on the Sunshine Coast  to Bowen Island to downtown  Vancouver) will be the only  route covered under (this request) for proposal because  fast, passenger-only technology  is new to government... The  Seabus Terminal in downtown  Vancouver will be the only  facility made available for  private sector use."  MLA Harold Long says  "The government is not  positively sure whether (the new  service) will go to private enterprise or to BC Ferries. Cabinet  hasn't decided yet."  Regardless of the commuter  ferry critics, Long says "The  only way to get better ferry service is to expand population ���  one complementing another..."  But virtually all directors and  representatives of the Sunshine  Coast Regional District (SCRD)  object to Long's view of the  social impact that the commuter  ferry service might well have on  the Sunshine Coast.  S3  TOWN OF GIBSONS  NOTICE  Dear Dog Owner:  The public is reminded that as of January 1st, 1991,  new yearly licences are required for all dogs within  the Town of Gibsons.  Licences may be obtained at the Municipal Office,  474 South Fletcher Road, Monday to Friday, (8:00  a.m. to 5:00 p.m.)  Licence Faaa:  $30.00 For each and every un-neutered male dog  $30.00 For each and every un-spayed female dog  $12.00 For every neutered male dog  $12.00 For every spayed female dog  (Mrs.) Valdine Mlchaud  BYLAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICER  "I'm very troubled by the way  this operation is being handled  from Victoria on down,"  SCRD Chairman Peggy Connor told the Coast News. "They  are playing with people's lives  ��� and lifestyles ��� to bring  about a (ferry) service that may  not even be needed ��� and, in  fact, is considered unnecessary  by most coast politicians and  current commuters."  In a letter to Harold Long  which she read aloud at the  SCRD's regular meeting last  Thursday night, Ms. Connor  wrote "A news release from  Ministry of Transportation and  Highways has assured the  Board of the Sunshine Coast  Regional District that there will  be no government subsidy for  the fast passenger-only ferry  service on the trial run. We trust  this is still the case."  In a polite rebuke to recent  comments made by MLA Long,  Ms. Connor asked that he  "Please do not look at the Sunshine Coast as a bedroom community. While this aspect may  appeal to some, there are so  many who like to think of our  area as a destination to visit and  as an outdoor recreation area,  valuing our rural atmosphere...  a distinct society (community)  as opposed to an add-on to  some place else."  Speaking in far stronger  terms, SCRD Director and  outspoken critic of the  passenger-only ferry plan, Gordon Wilson noted that "(This  plan is) gonna cater to a handful  of rich people who can afford to  pay between 30 and 40 dollars  round trip. You could almost  fly for that price... Long is saying he ��� and his government ���  want to make this private service like Rapid Rail to Surrey!"  The Coast News has learned  that Harold Long considers  criticism of the commuter ferry  by Wilson and others to be  motivated by political considerations against him, rather  Please turn to page 9  January  EVERYTHING  must  SAVE UP TO  ON ENTIR  INVENTO  Hours: J J -f ~ Prices Effective  9:30 am - 6 pm     11 am - 5 pm      Mon., Jen. 14 to Sun., Jen. 20  Fridays 'Till 9pm   Sun. & Holidays  ^ chicken  ^ legs  1 back attached  Kg 2 16  i  Boneless  Inside Round  ROAST  Olympic ��� Regular or B.B.Q  Bulk  m9& J&  WW **fwmF  2.98  .99  kg 6.57 lb  kg 2.18 lb  WIENERS  ^^^fresh ��� Florida grown >(  with minimum $10���        9  ^k  e ���  Assorted Flavours  Tang Drink   gjjjjf  .2.99  .2.99  3/92g I WW  Kellogg's Frosted Flakes  CEREAL  Strawberry or Raspberry  Smuckers  JAM  CRYSTALS  Regular'Flne.Extra Fine  Maxwell House Ground  COFFEE  Smooth or Crunchy  Kraft  PEANUT  BUTTER  Robin Hood  Quick or Wild  OATS  300g  IKg  2.25Kg  1.89  3.79  2.99  .99  1.59  2.29  Koftfer's ���Sliced or  Shaved'Black Forett  SMOKED      HAM MSTRAMI  1.19    ~'--75   Urn 1.19  Weston's'Wonder.pialn  English  MUFFINS  Ovenfresh'While or 100% Whole Wheat  Raisin  BREAD  bonus pkg. of 8  4S0g loef  Ovenfresh  CROISSANTS.  ���s  Olympic ���SHced or  Shtvd'Montreal  OlympicSllcil or  Shayed'Cooked  pt>r100g /  community news msm  Coast News, January 14,1991  A cafe for Creekers to open soon  by Janice UjjMoa, MfrgMl  I have it from a reliable  source there are over 60  businesses operating in Roberts  Creek. The Roberts Creek merchants community located in  'downtown' Roberts Creek is  welcoming a new business to  that area, Creek Foods International. Owned and operated by  Patti Dewar and Jerry Hills,  Creek Foods International has  been catering the Friday and  Saturday night Legion dinners  and various other events for  some time now and will soon be  opening a cafe where Ragazza  Fine Clothing once was.  Plans are for breakfast and  lunch and hours will be from 6  am to 4 pm daily. Arriving with  the other catering equipment,  the espresso machine will attract  cappacino and cafe-au-lait  lovers.  Patti Dewar and Jerry Hills  each bring 22 years experience  SECHELT SCENARIO  as chefs to this enterprise. Patti  has owned a Vancouver  restaurant and been chef at the  Mariner Restaurant. Seafood,  chicken, and vegetables will be  the main ingredients of their  varied cuisine, although Chinese  barbecued pork is one of their  specialties. Other Creek Foods'  specialties, dinners-to-go, and  picnics-to-go will be available in  non-plastic containers at the  cafe's retail deli. Wholesale and  retail deli foods such as salad  dressings, sauces, and sushi will  also be marketed. Both chefs  lean toward the use of organic  ingredients and low fat with no  deep fat frying done.  Roberts Creek has been wan-  ling a cafe where we can get a  cup of coffee, have something  to eat, sec friends, meet new  people, and grab something to  take home for dinner, and this  is it. Dewar and Hills bring expertise and experience to this  endeavour. The best of luck to  them too.  WINTER BLUES FAIR  A fundraising event for the  Roberts Creek Hall, the Winter  Blues Fair is scheduled for  January 27 from 12 to 5 pm at  the Hall. It will truly be a fair  with a variety of activities and  entertainment happening. Live  music is a certainty with Clark  Stebner, Rae Ellingham and  Dave Morgan already scheduled  to play.  Tables are available to rent  for $20 for retail sales, flea  market items, food booths, or  activities and services. $20 is  steeper than usual for tables but  all of it goes to support the  Community Hall. It's bound to  be a fine event with Jeanette  Moen handling organization.  She needs all kinds of support  so call her at 885-5512 if you  play music, need a table or want  to get involved.  THANKS FIREFIGHTERS  This stormy winter has its inconveniences with power and  cable outages and cars off the  road. A big thank you to all  those services that brave the inclement weather to come to our  aid. Special recognition to the  Roberts Creek Fire Department  for dousing that inconvenient  fire at midnight on New Years  Eve and the fire last week at  1:30 am on Joe Road during the  snowstorm. You're terrific.  PEACE ON EARTH  During the '60's I understand  that Roberts Creek was an attractive destination for many  Americans seeking asylum from  the draft and the horrors of the  Vietnam War. Some of those  who sought peace have settled  in Roberts Creek. War or peace  is the big issue this week. Let all  of us here in Roberts Creek seek  peace in our own way. War is  over if you want it.

Nkholmn photo  DAVIS BAY NEWS G VIEWS   After all this snow and being  in so much, we need a lighter  touch. I borrowed this piece  from an old Workers Compensation Board Newsletter...  Dear Sir:  I am writing in response to  your request for additional information on the accident  report form. I put "poor planning" as the cause of my accident. You said in your letter  that I should explain more fully  and I trust that the following  will be sufficient.  I am a bricklayer by trade.  On the day of the accident, I  was working alone on the roof  of a new six storey building.  When I completed my work, 1  discovered that I had about 500  pounds of bricks left over.  Rather than carry the bricks  down by hand, I decided to  lower them in a barrel by using  a pulley, which fortunately, was  attached to the side of the  building at the sixth floor.  Securing the rope at ground  level, I went up to the roof,  swung the barrel out and loaded  the bricks into it. Then I went  back to the ground and untied  the rope, holding it tightly to  ensure the slow descent of the  500 pounds of bricks. You will  note on the accident reporting  form that my weight is 135  pounds.  Due to my surprise at being  jerked off the ground so sud  denly, I lost my presence of  mind and forgot to let go of the  rope. Needless to say, I proceeded at a rather rapid rate up  the side of the building.  In the vicinity of the third  floor, I met the barrel which  was now proceeding in a  downward direction at an  equally impressive rate of speed.  This explains the fractured  skull, minor abrasions, and the  broken collarbone, as listed in  Section III of the accident  reporting form. Slowed only  slightly, I continued my rapid  ascent, not stopping until the  fingers of my right hand were  two knuckles deep into the  pulley.  Fortunately, by this time, I  had regained my presence of  mind and was able to hold tightly to the rope, in spite of the excruciating pain I was now beginning to experience. At approximately the same time, however,  the barrel of bricks hit the  ground���and the bottom fell  out of the barrel. Now devoid  of the weight of the bricks, the  barrel weighed approximately  50 pounds.  As you might imagine, I  began a rapid descent down the  side of the building. In the  vicinity of the third floor, I met  the barrel coming up. This accounts for the two fractured  ankles, broken tooth, and  severe lacerations of my legs  and lower body. Here my luck  began to change slightly. The  encounter with the barrel seemed to slow me enough to lessen  my injuries when I fell into the  pile of bricks, and fortunately,  only three vertebrae were cracked.  I am sorry to report,  however, that as I lay there on  the pile of bricks, unable to  move and watching the empty  barrel six stories above me, I  again lost my composure and  presence of mind and let go of  the rope.  Sincerely  The Claimant  COMING EVENTS  Lots of people are needed for  crafts on Thursday mornings at  9:30 am. The Spring Tea will be  coming up soon.

The new program will consist  of a lot of singing with a strong  instrumental back-up, devo-  tionals, fun nights, etc. Because  of a previously arranged  meeting in the church on Friday, January 18, the Youth  Group will meet on the 17th. If  you wish information about  these programs, call Pastor Ed  Peters at 885-7760.  COMMUNITY ASSOC.  The last meeting of the Community Association was well attended considering the weather.  Thanks to Joyce Kolibas and  her husband, Mike, who were  able to come. Some of the concerns raised were the state of the  Highway in Davis Bay (a sea,  wall is badly needed,) wherei  sewage plants would be located,)  and what is going to happen to  the Log House in Wilson Creek.  The Community Association  has decided to try something  different so the next meeting is  going to be held in the afternoon as an experiment. More  about this change in future columns.

The cheque is going towards the clinic expansion  in Pender Harbour. The clinic is  a non-profit organization, providing extra space for health  care in Area A.  The expansion will enable the  Society to increase services for  the public. They have to date  $50,000 plus from individuals in  the community. A goal of  $300,000 for the expansion is  necessary.  The Society is trying not to  put any extra burden on the taxpayers as the donations will  reduce the homeowner tax over  the next 12 years. If you would  like to make a tax deductible  donation, feel free to do so at  the clinic.  If you would like to become a  member of the Society, they are  also available at the clinic for $3  single, or $5 for a family. I  could not imagine what we as a  growing community would do  without our clinic and the people who volunteer their help so  willingly.  PLANNING DEPARTMENT  The Planning Department of  the Regional District is holding  a public information meeting on  the new bylaw for Area A in the  Legion Hall, January 15, between 2 and 5 pm. Anyone with  questions is urged to attend. It is  a good time to see what  changes, if any, you can make  on your property. The Planning  Department meeting will begin  at 7:30 pm that evening.  SENIOR HOUSING  The senior housing members  would like to establish if there is  a strong enough need for senior  housing in the community.  Forty-five names are needed at  least.

In spite of lacking all the  usual array of winter sporting  equipment, we were still able to  take advantage of the local hills  by converting garbage can lids  and the like into sleds and  toboggans.  Though the kids enjoyed the  novelty of it, the adults revelled  in it. There's something  hilarious about fully grown men  and women hurling themselves  down a snow covered hill, on  the seat of their pants, ending  up by cartwheeling into a  snowbank, laughing all the way,  ha ha ha. The laughing soon  stopped after a tally was made  of all the bumps, bruises and  assorted other sore spots but I  have to admit, I'm ready to go  again, any time.  Another aspect of all this  woods foraging was the opportunity to view some winter  wildlife. It's not unusual in  these parts to catch sight of a  pair of deer prancing by or to be  startled by a grouse ruffling out  as you pass near it, but it's  always a treat.  The red-breasted sapsuckers  seemed to have trouble dealing  with the snow and cold as one  was observed being plucked  right off a tree by a more lively  red-tailed hawk and two others  were found frozen in the snow.  Seeing the animals toughing it  out there in the snow and the  rain and the cold, and hearing  of the number of dead animals  that friends had come across  brought to mind that age-old  maxim, "Survival of the  fittest". It was an educational  experience to be able to view  nature thinning its herds, and it  was great to be able to enjoy the  great outdoors in what would  have been otherwise considered  lousy weather.  Meanwhile, back at the  cabin, there are still a few  frozen pipes and drains. Collecting snow and melting it is an  old fashioned change of pace,  but it sure will be wonderful to  have running water again. If  you were unfortunate enough to  be reliant on BC Hydro and/or  BC Tel there was the usual string of power failures following  all that heavy snow and rainfall.  As for driving conditions,  you were probably better off it  you couldn't get out of your  driveway. The highway is usually okay, but the side roads are  treacherous. And don't even  bother going to the city.  SCHOOL CLOSURES  Until either the weather conditions improve or the power is  back on, reliably, you should  check beforehand to see if the  school will be open on  Wednesdays. Call Marten at  883-8811 for an update on the  events.  GET WELL SOON  A manager for one of the fish  farm companies in the area suffered not one, but two heart attacks last week. The second one  landed him in hospital where he  remained for a few days. Hope  he recovers quickly.  RESOLUTIONS  Well, I hope you're managing  to stick to any New Year's  resolutions you may have made.  I didn't have much luck on my  first one so I'm going to make  up a new, easier one.

Cenotaph untouched in  Sechelt road plan  by Stuart Burnside  A meeting last Thursday  afternoon between Sechelt's  Public Works Committee and  the Department of Highways  resulted in the finalizing of  plans to improve the intersection of Wharf and Cowrie  streets.  The plan, funded almost entirely by the provincial government through the Department  of Highways, is designed to  alleviate some of the downtown  congestion and to minimize the  present confusion and danger  attending to the troublesome intersection.  According to the blueprint  supplied by the Department of  Highways, the existing cen-  totaph would remain untouched, with the radius of the approach onto or off of Cowrie  from or onto Wharf being  decreased.  The improvements would do  much to make Teredo the main  thoroughfare for drivers wanting to bypass the congestion of  the town centre (Cowrie street)  in order to proceed through to  the highway in the quickest  possible manner. It was claimed  that parking along Teredo  would not be affected.  Tucker Forsythe, Division  Manager for the Department of  Highways, urged the council to  decide quickly about proceeding  with the project, as the money  allocated by the government  would be lost in mid-March at  the start of the new fiscal year.  Forsythe was quick to assure  the council, however, that work  would continue even if the project was not completed by mid-  March, but that money to  finance the continuation would  have to come from the budget  for the next fiscal year, possibly  jeopardizing other municipal  projects.

Alderman Michael Shanks  was opposed on the grounds  that further discussion on the  matter���supposed to have been  held at a finance meeting which  was ultimately cancelled���was  never completed. Alderman  Bob Wilson was also opposed,  but didn't elaborate.  Mayor MacLarty told the  Coast News in an earlier interview that she hoped the interest  on the money saved could be used to help with the education of  Sechelt students interested in  municipal government as a  career, with the principle to be  used at the Sechelt Council's  discretion.  Also broached at the meeting  was a request for the council's  assistance from BC Transit. The  transportation company would  like to augment its Coastal  mini-bus service and has asked  the Sechelt Council's help in  providing a suitable location to  house additional buses.  The council, while indicating  full willingness to assist BC  Transit (mentioning the  possibility of the old Capilano  Ferry  debate  Continued from page 5  than by reasoned, unbiased  assessments of the plan itself.  "I'm not surprised to hear  that," Wilson commented.  At the SCRD meeting a letter  from Gibsons' resident Doris  Fuller which claimed that being  elected to office does not give  one "...a carte blanche to  'speak for the people' without  consultation with them," was  circulated.  Ms. Fuller noted that "I  think a commute ferry ;to  downtown Vancouver is not la  bad idea at all ��� but I have noi  heard all the arguments for or  against because all my representatives have denied me that opportunity."  Calling for a prompt  response to Ms. Fuller's letter in  order to "...clarify the SCRD's  position on the matter," Director Wilson went on to say that  "Present commuters are opposed to the idea... We need faster,  more efficient ferry service that  carries vehicles and  passengers."  Also in attendance as his  municipality's representative on  Ihe SCRD, Mayor Eric Small  fretted about these latest  developments regarding the  commuter ferry service.  "This service is supposedly  running from Vancouver lo  Gibsons. It would have been  nice if we'd been consulted  about it."  College grounds as a suitable  storage spot), would like some  input on just where the new  buses would provide service.  Alderman Michael Shanks  said that, while additional bus  service was always welcome on  the Coast, he would prefer to  see more service provided  directly to the municipality  rather than simply beefing up  the existing mini-bus runs  designed to service the Langdale  ferry terminal.  Shanks also said he would  like to see BC Transit and the  private bus companies on the  Coast work in co-operation  rather than competition in providing service.  Alderman Bob Wilson, after  telling a disparaging tale of personal conflict involving the  quality of one of the private  mini-buses, urged full council  support of BC Transit, saying,  "They do an excellent job."  In a move to preserve a local  landmark, the Sechelt Council  also voted Wednesday to look  into the feasibility of acquiring  the log homestead building off  Highway 101 in Wilson Creek.  The building has been offered  for sale at the price of one  dollar to anyone interested in  moving it from its present  locatin.  Alderman Michael Shanks  said that, while the building has  not yet been designated a  heritage building by Parks  Canada, it is believed to have  been built as early as 1915, and  is apparently of Scandinavian  design.  The firm of G. Puckett and  Associates has been trying to  sell the structure for one dollar  since mid-September but has  had no takers. The company  wants to develop the land and  would rather not destroy the  building.  At the meeting, Alderman  Bob Wilson motioned successfully that Alderman Shanks  be assigned the task of  estimating the possible cost of  moving the building as well as  to suggest likely spots for the  building's use as a municipal  facility.  Shanks, chairman for  Sechelt's Parks and Recreation  Committee, suggested Brook-  man Park as the final resting  place of the log house, and  municipal property near the airport was mentioned as a  suitable interim storage area.  aaaaaaagajaijaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaajSM  A park possible  for Gambier Island  Property at the top end of Ihe wharf on Gambier Island,  which is owned by the Army, Navy and Air Force Veterans,  is being donated to the Regional District for a park.

At Kitchen Carnival in Sechelt, Edna Revington found  herself confronted with an excessively literal-minded  gentleman who apparently insisted that "it said in the paper  that baskets are not taxable!"  Well, they are. So, if the gentleman in question would like  to return to the store in question and purchase the basket in  question, there is no question that the Coast News would be  only too happy to pay the gosh darn GST on this item!

Coast News, January 14,1991  In Gibsons  Council tidies up to greet new year  by Rose Nicholson  In the first meeting of the  new year, Gibsons Council  caught up on, as Mayor Eric  Small put it, "a lot of  housekeeping items."  A letter from the Disabled  Persons Parking Program  prompted aldermen to look into  the town's provisions for handicapped parking spaces.  At present there are some  designated spots in commercial  parking lots tike Sunnycrest  Mall, but few spaces in public  parking areas.  Alderman John McNevin  questioned why decisions on the  matter taken four months ago  by the previous council had yet  to be put into effect.  Administrator Lorraine Cod-  dard assured aldermen that the  Town had provided such  spaces, "one near the Post Office, and there will be one here,  (outside the Municipal Hall)."  But she cautioned council that  the limited parking in Lower  Clearing the way for motorists was followed shortly by sidewalk clean-up in Lower Gibsons after a  near 80 centimetres of snow fell on the Coast and Lower Mainland last week.     -Joel Johnstone photo  Gibsons created a problem  because "it is illegal to park in  those spots and because we do  not have a high preponderance  of disabled people in the Town,  they often remain empty."  Planner Rob Buchan pointed  out that regulations in the  building code require handicapped parking in new commercial  developments.  Council unanimously passed  a motion by Alderman  Margaret Morrison that Gibsons join the Disabled Persons  Parking Program.  According to provincial requirements, council officially  confirmed ihe appointment of  Wally Dempster as the new  Chief of the Gibsons Volunteer  Fire Department.  A grant of $400 to the Victim  Assistance Program was approved, but a similar request  from the Arts Council was  denied. This prompted a discussion about Council's policy on  'grants-in aid'. At the suggestion of Alderman Morrison, it  was agreed to reconsider the  current policy that grants be  made only to projects and  groups that directly benefit the  residents of the Town, so that  allowances could be made for  other projects, "on their  merits", at the discretion of  council.  Mayor Small and Alderman  Bradshaw, along with representatives of Vancouver Island  municipalities and ICG, attended a meeting on January 3 in  Nanaimo to discuss the contentious issue of natural gas  distribution. "I'm impressed  with what Lidstone, Young and  Anderson (the legal firm retained by the municipalities) have  accomplished," said Small.  "I fed more confident than I  did a little while ago that Gibsons is going to get gas. The  company seems to be  negotiating in good faith."  Agreement has been reached  on some amendments and Gibsons is being asked for comments on a draft agreement by  January 14.  Planner Rob Buchan  reported that rezoning of a pro-  perty on School Road hinged on  securing a restricted covenant  that would prohibit its use as an  amusement arcade. "I see no  problem with this," he said. "A  similar covenant was registered  some time ago against the adjacent Kern's development at the  request of the School Board. I  have discussed this with Mr.  Winegarden, the applicant, and  he is in agreement."  Allowances are to be made  for an increase in development  costs from the present SI 100, to  approximately $1945, to more  accurately reflect actual expenses incurred by the Town in  providing services for new  developments. "I think we will  be doing this again pretty  soon," commented Mayor  Small. "We're still not up to  where we should be."  Cabaret closure  Bphie's Cabaret, the troubled Gibsons nightclub, was shut  down on January 4 and 5 as a result of Liquor Act violations.  Notices to that effed were affixed to the small window at the  cabaret entrance, and on a door facing the parking lot adjacent to the dub.  Elphle's was found in violation last May and was slapped  with a one-day suspension. Another 24 hour suspension was  imposed in September.  The suspensions were appealed, but at some point and for  reasons unknown, the cabaret's management withdrew their  appeal and the suspensions were carried oul.

Salmon protest  Adding Its voice to the growing clamour over the introduction of Atlantic Salmon to the Sunshine Coast, the SCRD  have sent a protest to the Ministry of Agriculture and  Fisheries.  Written by Chairman Peggy Connor, the letter states that  "even If this non-indigenous species is intended to be reared  In controlled sea pen and hatching situations...this situation  greatly concerns our Regional District Board...(and) many  concerns must be addressed and understood by our community."  The SCRD Board recently adopted an extensive set of requests which were contained in the letter to the Ministry.  The Board asked that it be supplied with "...an inventory  of fish stock kept in fish farms in our Regional District with a  view to determining the extent of Atlantic salmon stock."  The SCRD asked to be informed as to how this species is  currently being monitored with respect to disease, escapement, and origin of stock. The Board further asked to be advised of "...Ministry policy that allows for the importation  and inroduction of outside species to BC waters."  A born grocer  Katrina showed interest from earliest days  11.  by Rose Nicholson  "I got into my first market  on Galiano Island by accident,"  said Katrina Boese, "and when  I did 1 fell in love with the whole  market type of atmosphere and  the creativity part of it."  "I love cooking, and all the  flavours and spices, it was just  natural for me."  That love affair which began  almost nine years ago is still  going strong. Steps along the  way were the Galiano Market  and Gourmet Munchie in  Sechelt, and a produce market  at Fourth and Trafalger in Vancouver. The newest episode is  the recent purchase of Ken's  Lucky Dollar in Gibsons.  Photograpy  was  Katrina's  first career and from that she  developed her eye for detail and  colour. "The camera sees  everything," she explained.  "You might not notice a spot  on a shirt or a crooked tie, but  the camera does.  "I love the colour and design  of displays. Quality is important  to me too,���in everything, from  clothes to furniture. I like to  buy something once."  This passion for quality is evident in everything that Katrina  does. Customers of her other  stores have come to expect this,  and Geoff, the buyer for the  three stores, stresses the importance of careful hand selection  at the wholesalers.  Although Katrina might have  the market and l  Katrina Boese shows aa early interest la the grocery business.  business by accident, on reflection she realizes that her early  experiences probably influenced  her to become an entrepreneur.  "Women in the fifties didn't  work outside the home very  much," she said, "but my  mother had a lot of energy and  she got into several small  businesses that she operated  from home.  "She had a small catering  business for a while, then she  designed hats. She was very artistic and creative.  "For years my grandfather  had a store in a small town near  Edmonton. My aunt showed  me the pictures recently, it was  amazing!  "This Christmas my family  gave me a photo album of my  early years. Apparently we used  to shop at Woodward's Food  Floor once a month, and there  is one picture of me in a basket,  surrounded by grocery displays.  My Dad was going to caption it  - 'she started young'."  That picture was prophetic.  Katrina is still surrounded by  displays of groceries and produce, and it will probably stay  that way for a while, because "I  love what I'm doing," she says.  "I'm so intrigued by the colours  and labels, and the way things  are stacked. It might have  started then, when we used to  go to Woodward's!"

He's just been informed that what  "he's standing in Is a new kind of litter. LaRaj has his doubts.  i * ���Jan Michael Sherman photo  As we press further into the  ancient wood, Yvonne points  out some very odd trees. They  appear to be hemlocks���but  they are of a type I have never  run across before.  The corkscrew trees of Kitselas  twist upfront the primeval moss  as though two giant hands  had wrung them like dishrags  Strange trees  coiling like brown Narwahl  horns  anomalies of nature  among their arrow-straight  cousins  Yet fitting symbols somehow  for this odd country  where black bears wear white  coats  ancient lava flows wear blankets  of green lichen  and history whispers in the hills.  History speaks loud and clear  when we arrive finally, at  storied Kitselas Canyon. The  Skeena is a wide river for most  of its length but here it squeezes  to its narrowest point. The place  abounds with legends both  Native and white. We scramble  down a steep bank and stand at  the rocky river's edge, thinking  about the past.  Long before the coming of  white men, a fortified village  stood on the farther shore. It  was named Kitselas which  means 'People of the Canyon.'  The warlike Kitselans controlled  all traffic on the river at this  point like toll-bridge keepers;  exacting tithes from neighbouring tribes when they sought to  lake their canoes through the  canyon. The village was abandoned around the mid I800's  and only a few overgrown traces  of it remain.  When the railroad was pushed through in the latter years of  the century, a typical boom  town sprang up near the site of  Kitselas. It boasted all the usual  frontier amenities, including  saloons and brothels. Although  the line is still functional, this  settlement too, has long since  vanished.  Between us and the main  channel of the river lies  Ringbolt Island, a brush-  covered rock that evokes  memories of the steamboat era.  In those days, this narrow channel was the most difficult part  of ihe Skeena for the paddle-  wheelers to negotiate.  The boats had to be pulled  through the canyon by means of  ropes, ringbolts in the rock and  as many strong backs as could  be mustered. Passengers were  traditionally called upon to  assist in this onerous chore.  But Kitselas Canyon holds  only memories now. A chilly  wind blows down the river. We  scale the bank and head for  home among the corkscrew  trees.  It is time to terminate our  northern idyll and return to  southern realities. We load the  car and bid the Lakesle cottage  goodbye���not without certain  regrets. It has served us well.  We have one more important  stop to make on the long  homeward journey���a visit to  historic Old Hazelton. Once the  upriver terminus of the Skeena  steamboat runs, the town lies  several miles north of the  Yellowhead Highway.  Since the construction of the  highway, two other communities���New Hazelton and  South Hazelton���have sprung  up along this main artery  but���despite being  bypassed���the original settlement remains very much alive  and kicking.  Old Hazelton is entered by a  high bridge over a deep and  spectacular gorge called  Hagwilgel Canyon. Despite the  ugly name, it is a place of great  natural beauty.  Amazingly enough, the  original bridge over the daunting chasm was built by Natives  in   pre-contact   times.   Old  photographs show a  remarkable, almost surrealistic  structure of logs and cedar  rope. Despite its slapdash appearance, however, it was,  reportedly, quite safe and showed a sound intrinsic knowledge  of basic engineering principles.  The town itself is an interesting mixture of old and  new. Parts of it could easily  double as sets for a western  movie. Like many other such  places we have visited, it has obviously learned the value of its  romantic past lor attracting  tourists.  Chief among these attractions  is the reconstructed Native  village of K'san, its totem poles  and cedar loghouses, authentic  in every detail. It sits in a well-  kept park with Ihe snow-  cloaked bulk of ihe mountain  towering majestically in the  background like a minor Mat-  terhorn.  We stop briefly on our way  out of Old Hazelton to  photograph a wide ledge above  Hagwilget Canyon, strewn with  oddly-shaped rocks like the  ruins of some ancient city. Then  we head out to Ihe highway and  start the long haul back to Vancouver. It has been an odyssey  lo remember.

Having had a diet  limited to the low supply of staples in our cupboards that could be cooked on  top of the heat stove, we were ready for some real food. Tops on the list of  things to do was go the the grocery store and treat ourselves to lunch at the  Cedars.  My husband is a Caesar salad aficionado. He always used to rave about the  Cedars' Caesar while I would be digging into their delicious generously portioned lunch carvery buffet. He complimented his favourite variation���Caesar  salad topped with fresh shrimp so highly and so often, I finally decided to try  one. What a treatl The Cedars' Caesar salad is absolutely outstanding.  This particular cold winter day we tried some variations on our usual order.  My husband ordered his salad with teriyaki chicken and I chose to accompany  mine with a bowl of clam chowder. All of it was outstanding. The salads were  served fresh and crisp, with hot garlic bread, homemade croutons and a slice of  lemon. Perfect.  The Cedars has a vast selection of hot and cold sandwiches, seafoods and  soups. We keep telling ourselves they do have other great things on their  menu...  An added bonus���we always thoroughly enjoy our visits to the  "neighbourhood pub" being greeted by it's gracious owner.

If you want to enter a  team, get your name in soon  because this popular spiel  always fills up quickly. The  sheet is on the bulletin board  now.  ART OF SWEEPING  For the next couple of weeks  in this column we will offer a  few sweeping tips.  There are three things that  sweeping does for a rock. It  causes a slight melting of the ice  creating a thin film of moisture  for the rock to slide on. It  smoothes the pebble and  removes frost, reducing friction  in the path of the rock and it  cleans debris off the ice so the  rock does not get jarred off its  path by a piece of straw, a brush  hair or grit.  It stands to reason therefore  lhal the harder you sweep the  more effective the sweeping is.  Sweeping improves with the  number of strokes and the  strength applied to each stroke.  Good sweepers can probably get  the stone to travel an additional  10 to 15 feet.  Sweeping a stone can also be  used to keep a stone running  straight. The stone is not really  kept straight, but it arrives at  the far end of the sheet sooner  so it does not have as much time  to curl. It also tends to follow  the path of least resistance, so if  the ice surface is melted in front  of it, it will tend to follow the  path of the melt.  Endurance, strength, technique and rhythm are all required  to be an effective sweeper. The  single most important factor is  probably rhythm, although,  more important for the beginner is to ensure you are sweeping in front of the rock. A lot of  beginners waste their effort by  sweeping alongside the rock instead of across the face.  The Gibsons Kings moved into a tie for second place with a  big 7-6 win over Roberts Creek.  The Kings got a pair of goals  from Steve Partridge (2) plus  goals from Graham Ruck, Ron  Norgard, Bryan Loyst, and  Steve Carey with the game winner in the last minute of the  game.  The Creek got pairs of goals  from Ken Fitchner (2) and Bob  Gower (2) plus single goals from  TETRAHEDRON SKI CLUB  GENERAL MEETING  has been re-scheduled to  Tues., January 15 7:30 pm  Roberts Creek School  Community Use Room  Re/reshments ��� "Every welcome" 886*2673  COA8TWORD8  Gibsons  [��) Swimming Pool  Call 886-9415 tor further Information  Monday 4 Wadneidiy  Fridays  Early Bird  6:30-8:30  Early Bird  6:30-8:30  Aqua-Fit  9:00-10:00  Aqua-Fit  9:00-10:00  Parent & Tot  10:30-11:00  Seniors Swim  0:00-11:00  Noon Swim  11:00-1:00  Noon Swim  11:00-1:00  Lessons  3:30-7:30  Swim Club  3:30-5:30  Swim Club  7:30-8:30  Public  5:30-7:30  Lengths  Underwater  Only/Masters  8:30-10:00  Hockey  7:30  Tuesday 1 Thursday  Saturdays  Seniors Fitness  10:00-11:00  ruouc  2:30-5:00  Seniors Swim  11:00-12:00  Public  7:00-8:30  Adpt.

Nutter  Among the Christmas books  here this year was one by  Stephen Vizinczey. His is nol  perhaps a household name, but  as it happens I did meet Stephen  Vizinczey when he first came to  Canada in 1956.  1956 was the year of the  Hungarian uprising against the  Russian tanks in Budapest.  Stephen fought in that and  then, when it was of course  hopelessly lost, escaped and  came to Canada with a number  of other young Hungarians. He  was 23.  He came first to the National  Film Board in Montreal, along  with another of his friends, a  film editor, now a producer of  feature films, sometimes referred to on movie sets as 'Count  Dracula.'  The two of them had been  through the Academy of  Theatre and Film Arts in  Budapest, and this was one of  the three first film courses  available in the world. Dracula,  as a cutter, moved right in  regardless of the language,  though I remember a bit of a  contre-temps.  We were making a secret film  for the United States Navy and  they had sent up, rather to our  aghast, a platoon of Marines to  ride herd on the security. Two  of these stalwarts would be  posted through (lie day outside  the cutting room door.  At noon there would be a  changing of the guard, accompanied by 'hup right left etc. At  the end of the day a lieutenant  would appear, gather the 'outs,'  and march them down to the  furnace to be burned. The  editor would not of course  know what was really going to  be 'outs,' and eventually almost  any old print stuff from the archives was presented for this  purpose.  At a point the regular editor  fell ill, and rather heedlessly I  guess, Dracula was put in his  stead. The ramrod lieutenant  found that he was dealing with  someone who didn't really  "spikka   the   language."   He  looked into it and found that his  secret film was being edited by a  revolutionary not yet a year out  of a communist country. What  he was told was that this chap  couldn't understand the words  and was simply cutting to the  footage numbers. However,  Dracula was replaced.  Vizinczey's experience was  essentially different. He was a  writer and he arrived, as he  acknowledges, with scarcely 50  words of English. Scripting was  what he did and scripting was  what they had him do. In the introduction to this latest book, it  is said that he learned first his  writing in English 'oddly,  though perhaps not oddly,  working for the National Film  Board of Canada.'  The book, 'Truth and Lies in  literature,' is published in the  UK where he has lived for some  time now, and is a collection of  essays and reviews first published in The Times, The  Telegraph, The Guardian and  others; the quality papers of  Britain. Clearly the lad has  moved along with the language.  Back in 1956 the few, I think  there were only two at one  point, staff writers at the Board  could find themselves filling in  on a Vizinczey script, and  ultimately sitting beside him at a  movieola working out some  final commentary. Always a  pleasurable bit. He was alive,  intelligent, humourous and immensely energetic.  Within the scantest kind of  time, he was editing a magazine  in Montreal, Exchange; and not  too long after that he had  finished a novel: In Praise of  Older Women. No publisher in  Canada was interested and  somehow he published it  himself, and personally hawked  it about Ihe country directly to  bookstores.  Today it has gone through 36  printings and umpteen foreign  publications and how about  that?  'Truth and Lies In Literature'  fell into my lap quite unexpectedly at Christmas, but it has  sparked perhaps the only Nc  Year's resolution I can  reasonably expect to carry  through with.  There are the usual things  about cigarettes and so forth,  and getting copy in on time and  so forth, but Vizinczey's book  provides a solid bolster to the  notion that 1991 is as good a  time as any to start re-reading  'the Classics.'  Vizinczey plugs his old  favorites and eloquently and  well: Stendhal, Balzac,  Dostoevsky, Gogol, Tolstoy to  begin with; and sure we know  them all do we not?  How long ago is it however  since we read them, and did we  really read them?  He comes up with a quote  from Daniel Webster where he  spoke of 'those ignorant asses'  who on going to a bookstore  ask not for a good book, but  for a new book.  Twas ever thus, and maybe  this is the way it must be in  order to maintain our  publishing companies and ensure that at least some of our  current writers get out into the  world.  Vizinczey's collection of  reviews however, from the '70s  and '80s, is the liveliest and best  encouragement to remember  that books are there to cover the  whole of our experience back as  far as we could write.

The Canadian Institute of Planners, In conjunction with  the Canadian Cycling Association, recently published a Community Cycling Manual to assist municipal planners and  engineers with the task of planning and providing for bicycle  use.  Regional District Directors declined lo buy the $50 manual  but will discuss the matter at a special meeting of the  Transportation Committee.  1  \ja"                    Wm^      Xmrnl ^^  \W\          H                         *       1    bbbbbL-  ���   t     ������!   tM  m\}^   <eVr|  ��� \ ���     ^V              ^k^k^k^k^k^s  j  "It's a lot colder outside than inside," one young swimmer was  heard to say last Thursday at the Gibsons Pool during swimming  Classes. ���Joel Johnstone photo  TIDE TABLES  Date    Time Ht.F1.  6:40 15.0  1511:55 11.8  TU 4:00 13.1  11:25 2.6  Dale    Time   HI Ft  7:05   15.0  1612:30   11.1  WE 4:50   13.0  Date   Time HI Fi  12-00 278  17  7:25 15.1  TH  1:00 10.5  5:40 12.8  Date    Time Hl.-Ft.  12i3t5 T2  18  7:50 15.2  FR  1:40 9.8  6:25 12.6  1:35 4.9  20 8:35 15.4 la��  SU  3:00 8.2  8:15 12.0  REFERENCE: Point Atkinson f��^r*uk.N��1���" ��* ��� ��� ,,  _      ,.,     _..._, 1 hr. 40 mln. plua S mln. lor each II. ol rise,  PaCjf|C Standard Time and 7 mln. lor each It. ot fall  Seabird  RENTALS LTD  PASLODE  Coil Ring Nailers i   Call for QUOTES ON NAIL STOCK  for Bostich, Senco, Paslode, etc.  V  FLURRY "%  ET & &IFTLAND    4KJSe 16.

Cditot  Coast News, January 14,1991  17.  Editor's Note: A copy of the  following   wis   received   for  Indignant commuter indicts passenger ferry  Harold Long MLA  Provincial Legislature  Dear Sir:  As a regular commuter for  the past two years on the  Langdale to Horseshoe Bay  ferry, I am very concerned  about the lack of input we commuters have when it comes to  issues like a high-speed commuter ferry service.  After all, we will make or  break such a venture! Not only  will our ticket purchases fund  such a service, but our taxes will  also have to be used because,  surely, such a service will need  to be subsidized. How else will  it be affordable? Let's look at  what it now costs us to live on  the affordable Sunshine Coast,  and commute to Greater Vancouver. (Figures based on monthly costs at five days a week.)  $40, Langdale Public Parking  Lot; $80, ferry costs as foot  passenger with coupon; $30,  monthly pay parking for "Vancouver" car in Horseshoe Bay;  $150 total.  These figures do not include  extra costs for maintaining a second vehicle on the "other  side", bus fares etc. When my  wife and I lived in Vancouver  we got by with one car, but it's a  price we were prepared to pay in  order to live on the beautiful  Sunshine Coast.  In addition, like many others  here on the Coast, owning a  house in Vancouver was either  out of the question, or at best,  extremely difficult and financially burdensome.  There is no way that I can afford to pay more than $80 a  month for ferry costs. At $4 a  day, the present service is affordable,  albeit   sometimes  un  reliable. There's no way your  high-speed commuter ferry will  be able to hold the line at $5 a  day or less for ferry service. At  $20 a round trip, my monthly  cost would escalate from $80 a  month to $400 a month. That  would get me to Vancouver,  where I would have to pay ap  proximately $75 to $100 a  month to keep my "town car"  so I could drive it back to the  North Shore where I work. Of  course, this would add additional time to my travelling as  well. And all this for only an extra $400 per month���such a  deal!  I've talked to many other  regular commuters who also  share my feelings. Many of us  work on the North Shore, or require a vehicle on the other side.  A "fast" ferry to Vancouver is  not the answer.  Please consult with the  regular commuters as to just  what our collective needs are.  Perhaps a Seabus-type service  from Gibsons to Bowen to  Horseshoe Bay would be the  cheapest and quickest alternative. Or simply add a second  boat on the existing run���or a  7:30 am, 4:30 pm and 11 pm  sailing?  Reader says not all veterans support Bush  Editor:  I would like to commend the  Coast News for its December  editorials criticising sharply the  US actions in the Persian Gulf.  Some years ago while in Santa Cruz, California I was persuaded to join the Bill Most  Post of the US Veterans of  Foreign Wars (VFW). Although  I served for five years in the US  Army during World War II I  had never wanted to join a  veterans organization until this  time.  The following resolution  which was passed by my VFW  post on January 6 explains in  part why I joined this post and  keep up my membership:  "Waging war begins with  combat and ends with a peace  conference; waging peace  begins with a peace conference  and ends with a peaceful solution.  "The Bill Most Post of the  VFW whose members fought in  four wars has a reputation as a  veteran's post for peace. We  waged a long campaign against  military intervention in Central  America. This kept before the  public a generation of veterans  who opposed militaristic solutions to world problems advocated by the Reagan and  Bush administration.  "In the Middle East violence  and hostility too long has  described relationships between  cultures that have a sad history  of conflict.  "The intensity of the current  crisis reminds us there is a  danger of this conflict involving  all nations. Regarding the cur  rent conflicts���the Gulf Crisis,  the Palistinian problem,  Lebanon, and the Iraqi-Kuwait  problem���it is in the world's interest lo promote peaceful solutions to the problems of that  region.  "We   call   on   Congress,  religious and labour leaders to  initiate a Middle East Conference before we are involved  in a war."  The Bill Most resolution has  received widespread publicity in  all major Northern California  newspapers. It indicates that  there is plenty of opposition to  Fate of Inglis House not certain  Editor:  I have just discovered that the  Inglis House, which sits between School Road and  Highway 101 overlooking  Pioneer Park has been sold and  is to be either demolished or  relocated. Over the years a  number of efforts have been  made to acquire heritage status  for this house.  The Inglis house was built in  1913 and is connected both with  the Inglis and Woodsworth  families who were instrumental  in founding the NDP. In fact,  Mrs. Grace Maclnnis, recently  awarded the Order of BC, is a  member of the Woodsworth  family and was for some years a  federal member of parliament.  Am I alone in thinking that a  last attempt should be made to  save this pleasant and historic  house in its original location?  We live in a largely unionized  town and consistently send an  NDP member both to Ottawa  and Victoria. Do the local  unions and members of Ihe  NDP not feel that they should  Iry and save this important symbol of their history? Or are we  content to let the bottom line  rule and build a town which  reflects the attitude of a society  which knows "the price of  everything and the value of  nothing."  If anyone is interested in trying to save the Inglis house,  please contact the Heritage  Society by calling either Lilian  Kunstler, 886-9058, or Fred Inglis, 886-3890.

Wrong! The Breakers have  always supported Minor  Hockey, and will continue to do  so in the future.  In fact, a number of our own  players have coached and  managed this team in the past.  While we support the efforts of  Minor hockey to re-establish a  midget age team, you have to  understand the frustration of  our members who occasionally  turn out for their 9:30 ice slot,  to find between 4 and 8 players  using the ice, where our club  once would have had up to 35  players utilizing the same ice.  This is frustrating, yes,  because we have lost 15 of our  players because of Ihe later  time. But it certainly is nol the  fault of Minor Hockey.  Our dispute, from the very  beginning, has been the inability  of the ice arena management to  find an equitable and fair solution to a problem, thai our club  members could suggest  numerous alternatives.

Mahbub Ul Haq  Concern with human  development seems to be moving to centre stage in the I990's.  For too long, the recurrent  question in discussions of international development and  foreign aid was: how much is a  nation producing? Increasingly,  the question is now being asked:  how are its people faring?  The principal reason for this  is the growing recognition that  the real objective of development is to enlarge people's options. Income is only one of  those options���an extremely  important one���but it is not the  sum total of human existence.  Health, education, physical environment and freedom���to  name a few other human  choices���may be just as important as income.  The Human Development  Report 1990, published by  UNDP this summer, addresses  some of these concerns and explores the relationship between  economic growth and human  development. It challenges  some of the conventional  wisdom, explodes some of the  old myths and reaches some important conclusions which have  a significant implication for  development strategies for the  next decade.  It is wrong to suggest that the  development process has failed  in the last three decades. Judged  by real indicator of human  development, it has succeeded.  I  Average life expectancy has  increased by 16 years, adult  literacy by 40 per cent, per  capita nutritional levels by over  20 per cent, and child mortality  rates have been halved during  this period.  32.  Business  Opportunities  In fact, developing countries  have achieved in the last 30  years the kind of real human  progress that it took industrial  countries nearly a century to accomplish. While the income gap  between north and south is still  very large���with average income of the south being six per  cent of the north���the human  gaps have been closing fast:  average life expectancy in the  south is now 80 per cent of the  northern average, adult literacy  66 per cent and nutrition 85 per  cent.  It is true that the past record  of the developing world is  uneven, as between various  regions and countries and even  within countries. It is also true  that there is still a large unfinished agenda of human  development.  One-fourth of the people in  developing countries are still  deprived of basic human  necessities, minimum income  level and decent social services.  But the overall conclusion is  that the development process  does work, that international  development co-operation has  made a significant difference,  and that the remaining agenda  of human development is  manageable in the 1990's if  development priorities are properly chosen. It is certainly a  message of hope, though not of  complacency.  High economic growth rates  will not automatically translate  into higher levels of human  development. It all depends on  the policy choices countries  make. ,  The real world offers too  many uncomfortable examples  of a wide gap between income  32.  Business  Opportunities  and human development levels.  Adult literacy in Saudi Arabia is  lower than in Sri Lanka despite  a per capita income that is IS  times higher.  Child mortality in Jamaica is  one-fourth that in Brazil,  although Jamaica's per capita  income is one-half of Brazil's.  Life expectancy in Costa Rica is  75 years at a per capita income  of $1,610 while it is only 58  years in Oman with a per capita  income of $5,810.  Why such wide divergences  between income and human development levels? The explanation lies in how income,  physical assets, financial credit,  social services and job opportunities are distributed.  If a better linkage is to be  created between income and  human development, it is essential to adopt policies which  distribute assets and opportunities more equitably.  The only long-term remedy is  to invest in the poor people,  particularly in their education  and training, and to bring them  back into the mainstream of  development.  Developing countries often  have sufficient resources to take  care of their human development goals through restructuring present priorities in their national budgets and in foreign  assistance allocations.  Many poor countries spend  two to three times more on their  military than on the education  and health of their people.  Overall, third world military  spending has been increasing by  $10-$15 billion a year. If new  concepts of security are evolved  in the I990's, resources can be  used instead for constructive  purposes.  Most budgets can be balanced without unbalancing the lives  of future generations. And that  is why aid donors must insist  that human investment will be  the last item to be touched when  all other options have been explored and exhausted.  It is wrong to pretend that  markets alone can deliver  balanced patterns of economic  growth and human develop- -  ' ment. There must be a judicious  mix of market efficiency and  social compassion.  Even in the free-enterprise industrialized nations, 15-20 per  cent of ONP is being recycled  through budgets to support a  social safety net, through  unemployment and welfare  benefits.  In developing countries,  where income distribution is  much worse and social services  more inadequate than in industrial countries, there is a  greater need for a careful  balance between private and  public sector roles.  The real challenge now is to  ensure that human development  is at the forefront of human  development strategies in the  decade ahead. The Canadian  International Development  Agency (CIDA) is one donor  that has made that a priority.  Persuading the developing  countries to prepare their own  human development goals for  the 1990's and to integrate them  into their overall growth models  and investment budgets, is  critical.  The 1990's offer an exciting  challenge to move from new  ideas to concrete action and to  treat human beings, once again,  as both the means and the end  of all development.  til f\Vi\ WHAT LOW LOW  ��!***���    PRICES  VU^THRIFTY'S  '   RETAILER OPPORTUNITY   *  Chevron Canada Limited, one of British Columbia's leading retailers oi motor  gasolines, offers a business opportunity to an individual interested in operating  a retail gasoline outlet in Gibsons.

The kids had a three-day extended holiday during which  most of them had a greal time  in the snow. Bui it's back lo  normal now, school buses are  running again and the staff are  able lo show up for work,  Streets are really messy riglil  now, but no doubt will be all  cleared up in a lew days ���  unless we gel yd another Arctic  front and another dump of  snow.  I have been hearing lots of  complaints aboul ihe lack of  road clearing in Ihe Vancouver  area, but il .seemed thai Ihe  crews in our part of the world  did a very good job of keeping  our highway open and cleared  as much as was possible under  the circumstances. Some of  those who live on side streets  did not fare so well and were  pretty well snowed in, but considering the number of these  streets in the area, I think thai  Ihe crews did well.  The Hydro guys also had  their hands full trying to catch  up with all the power bumps  throughout the area. In Halfmoon Bay we were without  power from about 7:30 pm  Tuesday till around 6 am. It  went off just as we were about  to watch our favourite quiz  show Jeopardy!  Those of us with fireplaces  are indeed fortunate when it  comes to power bumps. We can  al least gel a nice fire for  warmth, and this, together with  a lew candles or lamps and a  battery operated radio can  make for a rather pleasant evening away from the telly!  It was important, however, lo  have the power back in lime lo  hear the latest news of Ihe Gulf  crisis. It blows the mind to listen  to politicians talk in such a  matter-of-fact manner on the  decision as lo the date on which  to start the massacre and maiming of thousands or even  millions of human beings.  THANK YOU LADIES:  Today  the  Halfmoon  Bay  branch of Si. Mary's Hospital  Auxiliary hold their monthly  meeting at Welcome Beach  Hall. All of us express our  thanks to these good ladies who  knit up a storm, or dress dolls  for bazaar sales, bake and make  all kinds of handicrafts to help  raise funds for patient comfort  at the hospital.  It is quite fantastic to realize  that a $100,000 was handed  over to the hospital last week,  the result of the dedication and  volunteer hours given by the  members. Well done!

Coast News, January 14,1991  At St. Mary's  Heart monitor acquired  '���������^ ������������      ����������iaiTaa��aTB.TB.m ���--^i^^^^mtamm^mwm^MmJ   Members of the auxiliaries to St. Mary's Hospital raised $100,000 to buy a new high-tech heart  monitor for the hospital. Accepting the cheque from past President Peggy (.alio is Barbara Harvey,  Chairman of the Hospital Board, while Dr. Farrer and incoming Auxiliary President Mary Mac*  donald look on. See story. _������,��� Fomsl��� pllolo  Nurses question  pension for doctors  Responding to BC Government's plan to pour $25 million  a year of taxpayers' money into  a pension fund for doctors,  BCNU President Debra  McPherson questioned where  the government has found these  resources.  "We can only hope that those  funds are in addition to increased money for badly underfunded health care facilities," said  McPherson, noting that during  the past six weeks dozens of  nurses have been laid off  because of bed closures.  McPherson, who represents  over 22,000 nurses across the  province, also said "Doctors are  getting   something    they  deserve," but added that "We  hope that the Vander Z?lm  Government shows nurses the  same consideration in the near  future.  "Our members badly need an  improved retirement benefits  package. They often have the  same work environment and endure the same problems as doctors. It makes sense to offer the  same protection."  The retirement income plan  for doctors, according to  Vander Zalm, came after  "Some five or six years of hard  work."  McPherson said that since so  much initial work has been  completed, "It shouldn't be difficult for the government to im  plement an improved plan for  our health care workers."  by Ruth Forrester, 885-2418  Thanks to the hard working  local Hospital Auxiliary groups  on ihe Sunshine Coast, St.  Mary's Hospital is now equipped with the latest high-tech  Heart Monitor.  The machine is a Nihon-  Knoden and is located in the Intensive Care Unit where it  records all readings, such as  blood levels, oxygen levels,  beai, etc. Readings can be  presented in graphs allowing  records to be kept.  The bedside monitor can also  communicate wilh monitors in  other areas of the hospital, such  as the one in the Operating  Room.  "We are absolutely delighted  with this new piece of equipment," said Dr. Farrer as he explained the machine's  capabilities. "It is the most up-  to-date model available and it  has the capacity for future expansion whereby a doctor can  call from a computer in his office and have the latest data  show up on his machine."  This is the second year that  the Hospital Auxiliaries have  been able to present St. Mary's  Hospital with a cheque for  $100,000, thus making such  purchases possible.  The majority of the funds are  raised from the Thrift Shop  which contributed $80,000 to  the total, while the Gift Shop,  with its sales of handmade items  and patient sundries, raised over  $6,000. Individual branches  made up the rest of the funds  with bazaars, teas, bridge,  fashion shows, raffles, bake  sales, etc.  The donation of $100,000  was made possible by the support given by the communities  on the Sunshine Coast to these  fundraising events.  At the same press conference,  Dr. Rand Rudland announced  that a Paediatric Asthma Day  Care Clinic will be started at St.  Mary's Hospital which will offer means of assisting asthmatic  children in their response to  medication as well as making  adjustments to existing  therapeutic regimes if indicated.  Equally important will be the  educational aspect for the  parents and children to try to  better understand the asthmatic  process and the treatment goals.  Rudland said that one in 10  Canadian children suffer from  asthma, and the death rate  world-wide is increasing despite  considerable improvements in  treatment. Both children and  families suffer significant  physical, psychological and  social consequences of asthma.  It is only with an improved  understanding of the asthmatic  process that these often  debilitating aspects of paediatric  asthma can be diminished.  Treatment of asthma is a  multifaceted approach, starting  at home with controlled contributing factors (pets, dust,  mould, cigarette smoke, etc.)  and proceeding in a step wise  manner with various medications to prevent the inflammatory response which is the  basis of the asthmatic flare-up.  An informational meeting  will be held in the board room  of St. Mary's on Wednesday,  January 23, at 7:30 pm, with  clinics to follow on a monthly  basis. Timing of these meetings  will be discussed at the informational meeting when parents  may ask further questions, and  have input as to the best time to  allow access for the most  families to this process.

MacLarty's Hot Line  A mayoral "hot line," designed lo replace the suggestion  box used by the District of Sechelt two years ago, is now in  place at the Sechell Municipal Hall.  The hoi line number ��� 885-5360 ��� is connected to an  answering machine in the mayor's office that is operated  seven days a week, 24 hours a day.  According to a press release from the mayor's office, the  hot line is not meant to replace the usual line of communication for Sechelt residents (writing or phoning the Municipal  Hall to voice concerns or obtain information,) but is intended  to allow taxpayers to bring to the attention of the mayor  items they have addressed to the council or municipal staff in  the past that may have "slipped through the cracks."  The hot line may also be used to offer ideas and suggestions for the improvement of the community.
