 VHSIDEl  ���EDITORIAL/OPINION  ���CC  BS(   LEGISLATIVE LIBRARY  Parliament Buildings  aLE    Victoria, B.C. VSV 1X4  91.8  ^*-| THE SUNSHINE-  Coast  ���SPORTS  ���CLASSIFIEDS  Pige.6  Pig* 20  Published on the Sunshine Coast  28' per copy on news stands   SEWWNgThCSU^hSTcO^ST SINCE 1945  WITCH  OUT FOR  DETAILS OP  AN EXCITING  NEW  CONTEST IN  NEXT  WEEK'S  PAPER.  March 11,1991 Volume 45 Issue 10  Ferry showdown in Gibsons  MESSAGE FROM  THE PUBLISHER  Last week my appointment us Publisher of the  Coast News wis announced by John Burnside. A  lot has transpired In Ihe Intervening seven days,  mum overt indications of which you might have  noticed while reading your paper.  As you will, I'm sure, find readily apparent,  there are a number of additional new design and  format changes in evidence Ihis week as well.  As the song goes, "We Have Only Just Begun."  The gradual transformation of the oldest, most  respected newspaper on the Sunshine Coast his  already hid ��� profound impact on those of us who  labour, with much love, lo put It oul each Monday.  During the coming weeks there will be miny  other exciting, provocative changes introduced  within the pages of the Court News, and obviously  we hope Ihey meet with your enthusiastic approval.  After ill, these changes have all been designed���if  you'll pardon the pun���to do nothing less thin  enhance and nuke easier and more enjoyable your  weekly ritual of "doing the News."  Last week in this space we also announced the  debut of a provocative new addition to the Coasl  News family, i publication with the refreshingly  direct name of Coist Life.  This innovative, 'lifestyle* weekly, a tabloid with  i difference in terms of quality, entertainment  vihie, wd sheer readability, will complement Ihe  venerable Coast News and, we trust, come to take  Ka place along with Ihe News in your esteem.  Com Life will range far afield to provide Sunshine Coasters Uke yourself with a wide variety of  feature articles, columns, new fertlon (an aspect  watch parUculariy excites me), news, sports, aad  'coverage.  For example, on a weekly basis, Coasl Life will  include a "What's On?" calendar, video, book,  music and film reviews (from Ihe big screen, lhal  is), as well as late-breaking news and editorial comment and opinion.  Featured monthly will be such lifestyle areas as  Fashion Home Decor, Seniors Living, Vroom lo  Move! (can, nitch), Gourmet Cooking & Dining,  Travel, the Arts, and Nature of the Coasl. Coasl  Life will also present within its pages the works of  Ihe Coast's most accomplished and respected  writers, photographers and artists.  I have asked Coasl News Editor, Jan Michael  Sherman, to become Editor of Coast Lire and,  happily, he has accepted ihe challenge.  I am counting on Jan Michael to bring to our  new "baby" the same infectious enthusiasm,  original and idiosyncratic writing style, and sheer  creative vitality he has lent to Ihe News during Ihe  past eight months. In my opinion, he and Coasl  Life were made for each other.  In Ihe very near future I will be announcing the  publication date for the very first issue of Coast  Ufe. Personally, I'd Uke to put it out next week, (a  Ml of wishful thinking reflecting my belief in its  Prospects), but its lime will come.  And you'll be the first to know when that time  by Jan Michael Sherman  Immediately following last  Thursday's apparently definitive announcement that a  passenger-only ferry service will  indeed be coming to Gibsons,  Mayor Eric Small contacted Dr.  Stuart Vinnels, head of Island  Development Group Ltd.,  which was awarded the contract.  "1 said 'hey, you're the winner of the lottery'," Small said  with a laugh. "He didn't give  me much information over the  phone���aside from saying that  he'd not made any (final)  arrangements about landing  facilities and infrastructure."  The upshot of the conversation, according to Small, was  that Vinnels will be coming to  Gibsons from Victoria  sometime this week to meet with  the mayor and discuss the new  ferry service which has stirred  up much controversy not only  in Gibsons, but all along the  Sunshine Coast.  According to the Department  Of Transportation and  "Highways, Vinnels' group has  been given approval to operate  a "fast passenger-only ferry service between Gibsons, Bowen  Island, and Burrard Inlet." The  announcement was made in the  names of Minister Rita  Johnston, John Reynolds  (MLA for Wesl Vancouver-  Howe Sound), and Mackenzie  MLA Harold Long. Only two  and a half weeks ago, at a Ferry  *rrrum, held in Gibsons, Long  rJenjed knowing anything about  a.contract having been awarded, despite credible reports to  the contrary by CBC and other  media outlets.  Island Development Group  Ltd. plans to have a single,  200-plus passenger, 30-knot  vessel in service by May, with a  second craft by September. The  operator is preparing a schedule  that would see two vessels pro-  "Ttiere's no  place for people to (ark,"  Gibsons'  Mayor, Eric  Small.  Joel Johnstone  photo  viding 12 round trips a day between Gibsons and downtown  Vancouver with a travel time of  under an hour each way.  Mayor Small is already considering how to deal with possible problems arising for the  Town with the advent of the  new service, despite the fact that  Vinnels informed him lhat  "Langdale hasn't been (totally)  ruled out."  "I don't have to be considered when it comes to using  the Government Dock," Small  observed, "But I do when it  comes to things like untenable  traffic jams at the end of the  wharf," he added emphatically.  "There's no place for people  to park," Small said in  reference to the wharf itself,  adding thai Gibsons had few  enough parking spaces as it is,  without having to somehow accommodate   the   number   of  commuter cars anticipated.  "What happens to the people  standing out in the rain with no  protection or place to go to the  bathroom? " Small asked  rhetorically. "These are the  kinds of problems that have to  be addressed���and addressed  fast if they're going to start in  May."  When asked what the Town's  response might be should he not  receive satisfactory input at his  meeting with Vinnels, Small  replied lhat "I don't waiii.tn he  confrontational. Lei's keep an  open mind and sec whal he has  to say."  Referring back to his phone  conversation with Dr. Vinnels,  Small noted,"We didn'i discuss  how much he is going to charge  (for the ferry) or how he plans  to attract the riders lie's going to  need���but it's a question in my  mind."  SCEPP bolts LRUP  Group slams process  by Rose Nicholson  The Sunshine Coast Environmental Protection Project  (SCEPP) has withdrawn from  the Local Resource Use Plan  (LRUP) studies of the  Tetrahedron Plateau following  the February 27 meeting.  The LRUP study, initialed by  Ihe Ministry of Forests in  response to public pressure  about logging in the Tetrahedron, was set up to examine  all aspects of forest use, including logging, recreation,  wildlife and environmental concerns.  The approximately 30  members of the LRUP Committee are drawn from provincial ministries, industry, and  several environmental and community groups.  SCEPP representative Ken  Hunter was critical of the  LRUP process, maintaining  that "decisions reached ...will  not be binding ... and can be  overturned within the Ministry  of Forests...and that all interests  of the committee representatives  are not equally protected."  "The committee is asking us  to discuss land use of an area as  it is being logged," said Hunter.  "Basically, we believe lhat we  would be supporting a seriously  flawed, non-decision making  process by continuing to participate in the Tetrahedron  LRUP," added SCEPP  organizer Carole Rubin.  In a conversation with the  Cottrt News, Forestry official  Barry Miller, chairman of the  LRUP, stressed that his  Ministry would take very  seriously any recommendations  that come out of the LRUP.  "I'm concerned that if  groups pull out we'll loose a  critical ingredient in the  process," he said. "If too many  left it would scuttle the whole  process."  But Rubin is highly critical ol  the LRUP process. "To be a  good negotiation process," she  said, "...certain things need to  be set in. The chair should be  mutually agreed on by the  stakeholders, and ideally should  not be a stakeholder him/ or  her/self...so as not to be  coming from a point of view of  one or the other side of the  argument."  She is also dissatisfied with  the time frame set for the current negotiations. "In setting up  the process, there should be an  agreement to work on it for as  long as it takes to resolve the  dispute, or as long as the group  is willing to work on it.  "LRUPs are run by the  Ministry of Forests under tbe  Forest Act, and I just don't  think that's a good idea."  Rubin also pointed out lhal  LRUP members from Forestry  and industry have iheir expenses  paid for participating in the  meetings, but members from  environmental groups are all  volunteers and have no such  financial backing.  "Funding should be made  available by the Ministry.  That's usually what happens. In  the process lhal I've just finished working on with the federal  Agriculture Ministry, representatives from industry were not  paid, but representatives from  non-profit environmental  organizations were paid an  honorarium to be at the table,  and all of their expenses were  covered."  But Rubin has not written off  the LRUP. "If we could have  assurances, in writing, from the  Minister thai this LRUP's decisions would be binding, and  until the process was finished,  no cutting would take place in  the area under discussion, we'd  be back at the table in a flash."  Although the study officially  started last June, because of  serious   forest  fire  problems  during the summer, very little  was done until October. According to LRUP member Harry  Almond, the first few monthly  meetings were taken up with  discussions on terms of  reference and an attempt to  decide on the area to be studied.  It wasn't until the February 27  meeting that some agreement  was reached.  Originally, the study area was  to be the contentious  Tetrahedron plateau, where Interior holds cutting permits on  blocks near Batchelor and Edwards Lakes. In spite of strong  public opposition, the Batchelor  Lake cut block was logged last  summer, but Forestry, again in  response to public pressure,  placed a year's moratorium on  logging of the Edwards Lake  block. At this point, because of  Ihe delay in starting the LRUP  talks, it is nol clear whether the  moratorium period will be up in  June or October.  The recent decision has expanded the study area to lake in  a much larger area than the  Tetrahedron plateau and now  extends roughly from Sechelt to  Thornhill Point in Salmon Inlet  near Clowholm, to Rainy River  near Port Mellon. Within ihis  expanded area are the two hot  spots of Mount Richardson and  the Tetrahedron plateau.  Also in this expanded area  are cutblocks held by Canadian  Forest Products (CanFor) and  MacMillan Bloedel.  the Coasl News learned that  CanFor has approval for two  cut blocks in the Lake 9 area  behind Port Mellon and plans  lo log them in 1993.  MacMillan Bloedel has approved plans to log seven  cutblocks between 1991 and  1994. Five of these are in the  area of study of the  Tetrahedron LRUP, mainly in  the Chapman Creek corridor;  and two are in the Mount  Elphinstone LRUP. Coast News, March 11,1991  Vox Populi  The people speak out on Socred split  "It's sad. We're for Bill!  He's a good Christian. It's  devastating���it's a scandal..."  Ruth Biggers was responding  to a Coast News query regarding the apparent rupture in the  Socred Party and the announcement late last week that a new  party���the British Columbia  Pacific Party (BCPP)���had  been formed.  Biggers was one of only two  respondents (out of a dozen interviewed at the Trail Bay Mall  last Friday) who either empathized with Vander Zalm's  plight or expected him to  weather the current political  firestorm he is caught up in.  Sechelt resident John Bod-  narek, exuding confidence,  said, "I think Vander Zalm will  still squeeze in���there are a lol  of loyalists out there."  How many "loyalists" there  are left "out there" is a hotly  debated question, emerging  from the formation of the  fledgling BCPP, with some  political observers using the  word "haemorrhaging" to  describe the current stale of  Vander Zalm's party.  One of those loyalists, Gordie  Reeves, told the Coasl News  that he had voted Socred since  W.A.C. Bennett swept to power  in 1952. But things have changed for Reeves. "I will never vote  for them again!" Reeves said  with much emphasis.  Diane Case, echoing what,  during the past week, has quickly attained the status of "conventional wisdom" among  politicians and voters alike:  "It'll split the vote. The party is  in real trouble." Agreeing with  Ms Case was Len Rutter, who  observed that, "If it splits, there  will be another NDP government. They (the Socreds) have  made one blunder after  another."  "It's marvellous!", chuckled  lifetime CCF/NDP supporter  "Hydro" Bill Glcdhill. "But it's  20 years too late." Referring  more seriously to the dilemma  of Vander Zalm and the  Socreds, Phyllis Gledhill said  lhal, "I don't think they're  honest. He (Vander Zalm) is a  good businessman but a  supreme egotist. I don't understand why he doesn't resign."  Starting from left md going  counter clockwise are Alan  Taylor, John Bodmrek,  "Hydro" Bill Gledhill, Jack  Vin Brabant md Ruth  Biggers  Photos by Swan Burnside  Jack Van Brabant spoke to  the larger political picture when  he observed thai the Socreds  were "defeating themselves"  with regard to their "split",  claiming that he believed, "the  Reform Parly will get stronger  in the future."  Asked if he believed the new  British Columbia Pacific Party  stood a chance in the coming  election, Alan Taylor said,  "Not this year���it's too late."  The ineffable It'  FROM THE HIP J.M.Sherman  "I am the dreamer, YOU are  the dream!"  So observes actor Christopher Walken on several mind-  bending occasions to an (apparently) "alien being" during  the course of a demonstrably  forgettable movie called "Communion".  The filmic account of a series  of discombobulating, disorienting, and entirely inexplicable  "visitations" which turned  novelist Whitley Streiber, his  wile and young son into a trio  of quasi basket cases back in  1985, "Communion" purports  to be straight goods. The truth.  Far be it from me to sneer al  or discount anyone's peak experiences. Occuring as they do  apart from and beyond our  matrices of everyday, consensual logic and reality, the. events  Streiber struggles lo triage sense  of arc always more or less ineffable. They are certainly met  with vigorous resistance by  those non-participants with  whom such experiences are  shared.  Streibcr's spiritual visitation,  which was peripherally experienced by his wife and son,  took place at the lamily's cabin  in upstate New York. Creatures  Streiber describes as "possibly  higher forms of evolution" (but  looking onscreen like bargain  basement rejects from Close  Encounters and E.T.) probe  him like some lowly lab rat,  then proceed to gift him wilh  some manner of cosmic enlightenment.  Streiber and frau wind up in  Ihe caring, supportive embrace  of a shrink who serendipitously  has a baker's dozen worth of  clients, all of whom have had  experiences very much akin lo  Streiber's. But attending one of  their group sessions serves only  to undermine his sense of reality  even more and over-heal his  psyche intolerably.  If, by this point, you have  written off Streiber, his wife,  kid, shrink, two closest friends,  and a dozen other recipients of  Ihe old Cosmic Zap as birds of a  feather completely and irrevocably out of iheir individual  and collective trees, then here is  where we part company.  Some 10 years ago of a  balmy, near-dusk Los Angeles  day, I was sedately motoring  home in the Red Baron, our  vintage Datsun 510 wagon. As I  approached Coldwater Canyon  and Burbank, ihe last intersection before home, I was forced  to halt prior to turning left.  Normally I treat a left turn  with the healthy respect it  deserves, but nol Ihis day. I was  suddenly possessed of an urgency usually associated with racing  lor a plane or, more apt in this  case, wanting nol lo miss being  somewhere unspecified for  something unknown.  I deked across the on-coming  traffic, wheeled into the side  street leading to our house,  then realized 1 was supposed to  stop at the curb beneath a small  stand of what passes for trees in  a metropolis. I cut the engine,  replaced my hand on the wheel,  and just sat there. I was  unafraid, but feeling slightly  forlorn, as if I'd already missed  it. Whatever "it" might have  been.  Then an energy���my energy  ���seemed to completely infuse  the Datsun's interior and a light  neither manmade nor natural (it  being dusk, no stars, no moon)  made me suspect I had  somehow been teleported into  one of those el sleazo tanning  parlours along Ventura  Boulevard.  Thai was Ihe last of my own  thoughts I recall having during  the lime whatever it was lasted.  I was transfixed without being  immobilized, while the "light"  made what I can only describe  (however inadequately) as an information transfer of a magnitude sufficient to be stroked-  out every computer on-line al  that moment in time.  As I babbled to Denise  minutes later, it shared with me  all of everything that was, is,  will be, and always has  been���the complete contents of  the Eternal Void yata yata  yala...She was smart enough  not lo disbelieve me, I was certain enough of what had happened not to feel compelled to  try and come up with proof.

Fred is nervous, but trying to  hide it. He's been told to show  up in his boss's office first thing  this morning, and he just knows  he's getting the sack.  Art's not nervous, he's excited. It's the day of his Grade  12 graduation ceremony���but  he's got something planned  that's even bigger than that.  Freddy's on the cusp. As  both a straight A student and a  promising young actor, does he  lake his one chance to gain admission to the first class  highschool he's longing to attend, or does he accept his first  pari in a Broadway play?  And Bea? Well, Bea's doing  her best to hold the whole thing  together���herself included.  The ongoing saga of the  Small family will reveal itself  before your very eyes when the  Gibsons Landing Theatre Project Society presents No Name  Theatre in George Furlh's adult  comic drama "Precious Sons",  being staged in Roberts Creek  Hall, April 5 to 7 and 10 to 13.  To set the stage requires  1940's (or earlier) style dining  room and living room furniture,  and we're seeking to borrow the  following items: 6 foot chesterfield and chair, coffee and end  tables, lamps, magazine table/  rack, wooden table (with  drawer), 4 wooden chairs, a low  buffet, a carpet.

Teachers Cynthia Norman (left) and Sue Thompson (right) draw  the winning name in a Sechell Elementary raffle that raised $1,300  for new playground equipment. The prize, a hand-made comforter, was won by Agitha Rogers of Sechelt.  ���Sluirl Burnside pholo  Bul from that moment on, I  longed to meet another human  being who'd experienced  something���anything���similar.  But as a psychotherapist I knew  how reluctant most people were  to sharing their fantasies, let  alone realities approximating  the one I'd had the humbling  honour to inhabit.  About three years later my  closest friend and karate mentor, Mau Mau, was late at my  place for a garage workout.  When he did show, he had a  traffic ticket in his hand and a  bemused, seraphic smile upon  his face.  He'd been busied for failing  to vacate an intersection upon  receiving a green light. In fact,  according to the cop, he'd sat  through three greens while  motorists around him were  turning red. The cop then asked, while writing out the citation, why Mau Mau had parked  his funky old Bronco in the  middle of the left-turn lane.  "I told him the light didn't  want me to move while It was  doing it's thing. The cop handed mc the ticket and said 'Have  a nice day'," Mau Mau said  softly.  The glow of our grins danced  across the walls of the garage.  We Remember When  S YEARS AGO  Funeral services were  held for Cecile August,  matriarch of the Sechelt  Indian Band. Born in 1894,  Cecile was the daughter  of Jim Alec, one of the  "Four Trappers". She was  one of the first students at  the Indian School that  opened In 1904.  In a letter written to  Chief Stan Dixon and the  band councillors just two  days before her death,  referring to their efforts to  achieve self-government,  she said, "We are on the  right path, I know you  want self-government. I  am with you in spirit. God  bless you."  10 YEARS AQO  Prompt action at the  regional board meeting  held on March 12 may  have saved the joint community hall-gymnasium  for Roberts Creek. The hall  was endangered last week  when the Department of  Education refused a request from the school  board for funding for a  full-sized facility because  of rising construction  costs.  15 YEARS AGO  The SCRD unanimously  rejected a suggestion that  it  consider  leasing the  government wharves at  Madeira Park and Whiskey  Slough as the board felt  the upkeep fees were  unrealistic.  25 YEARS AGO  Gibsons Elementary  School Choir will be heard  on CBC radio on the program 'Music and Things',  on Wednesday.  A bill was placed before  the legislature by Tony  Gargrave to contrpl air  pollution as the present  Pollution Act did not do  so.  35 YEARS AGO  Ted Hennlker was named manager of Gibsons'  Bank of Montreal and Don  McNab, manager of the  Sechelt branch.  Increased dumping of  garbage along highways  and in the bush has forced  health officials to issue a  warning against such  practices.  45 YEARS AGO  The Inability of some  members of the Gibsons  and District Board of  Trade from outlying areas  to get to the meetings  because of bad road conditions has given birth to  the idea of forming two  boards of trade. The  dividing line will be Wilson  Creek.  There was a time when the  National Film Board archives,  that is all the old film in cans  stacked up somewhere, were  simply not catalogued. That is  that we really didn't know what  was in there. It was known of  course that most of this film  was on 'nitrate' stock, that is  that with time it could bubble in  its can and eventually could explode. The government every  year was implored to give us a  million dollars to do something  about this, but they never did,  and eventually there was an explosion and a fire, and a lot of  this dear old stuff was lost to us  forever.  During a period, before the  fire, I was doing a series of films  about exploration and navigation in the Arctic, and was delving into this mountain of cans  hoping to find something,  anything, filmed under any circumstances above the tree line.  The cans at the time were  isolated in a hangar on an airport north of Ottawa, unused  Saga of Eleazor Bernier  after the war. There would be  nobody else there except Bill  Galloway, a can-carrying  employee of the film library  department who became one of  the world's best known film  librarians. Bill would dish these  cans up and 1 would look at  them on a viewer.  It was very much a hit or miss  affair. A can for example labelled 'Steering North' turned out  to be an Australian film on flying over the jungles of Queensland. But odds and ends turned  up and suddenly there was a bit  of a bonanza.  The can had only the cameraman's name on it, and while I  did, of course, research that,  I'm sorry to say that today I  forget it. The film showed a  ship ploughing through a storm  in what appeared to be an Arctic sea. There was ice there. The  ship was obviously making  heavy way and every once in  IN A NUTSHELL Stuart Nutter  awhile the cameraman and the  camera would get doused.  Later, on the same reel, we  got a picture of the ship, taken  from a longboat or the shore. It  was a broadbeamed three-  masted schooner with sails, but  a'midships there was a tall black  funnel, and on the fordeck what  looked like a 3-inch gun.  It was the 'Arctic', captained  by Eleazor Bernier, the man  who took possession of the Arctic Islands in the name of  Canada. The film of course was  grainy, and jerkily episodic, and  all pretty much catch-as-catch-  can; but it was of course astoun  ding to find a camera there at all  at that time.  And Eleazor Bernier, when  you came to look into him,  turned out to be one of quite a  lot of Canadians who did much  for this country, but who are  now pretty much forgotten. He  did of course take possession of  the islands, but that is not what  he wanted to do at all. He  wanted to be the first man at the  North Pole, and he thought he  knew exactly how to do it.  He had been a deep sea Cap-  tain, from a line of Quebecois  deep sea captains, before he was  20; but he got married and  made the mistake of taking his  wife to sea on their honeymoon.  She got terribly sea-sick and  thereafter made every attempt  to get him a job ashore. She  came from one of those Quebec  families, and Eleazor became  the Governor of the Quebec  Gaol.  His star prisoner was a  number one forger, and Eleazor  had him out of his cell and into  the governor's quarters every  night. What he did there, between sips of brandy, was make  charts...to illustrate and prove  Eleazor's Master Plan.  The Plan was to get a proper  ship built and assemble a proper  crew. Then you got it up to a  right spot in the Arctic, got  yourself frozen in for maybe a  couple of winters, and the currents would bring you round to  a point where you could simply  tramp off and make it to the  Pole.  The 'Antic' was built for this  purpose and the crew (mostly  Newfoundlanders) had all this  end in view. But the government, who had appeared to  back it, sapped him into taking  possession of the islands and  collecting taxes from the  whalers. One supposes the  reason for the 3-inch gun.   .'*  Bernier completed his  autobiography before he died in  the late thirties. His wife eve* v)  tually got it published by U W  Devoir, the French language  paper in Ottawa; but there was  a war just started and nobody  paid much attention.  Today there are three copies I  know of in the back rooms of  major libraries. Le Devoir has  one copy and slid I was  welcome to come there and raad  it at any time, but they won't let  it out. Certainly this is one of a  number of books, stupidly, out  of print, that one of our  publishers might bring out  again.

The "BC  Pacific Party" has just been launched like some political  lifeboat lowered from the Socred Titanic.  in the wake of Mel Couvelier's resignation, the latest  convulsion of Vander Zalm's shuddering ship of slate, one  wonders how long the good premier can continue to  breathe without benefit of gills.  The new party, consisting as it does of disaffected and  discontented former candidates, organization presidents,  and once-loyal foot soldiers, is perfectly positioned to help  guarantee an NDP victory. It would be no surprise to learn  that Mike Harcourt has made a hefly contribution lo the  upstart BCPP.  While Socred eminence gris, Grace McCarthy, states  flatly that the Socreds are in "disarray" and Couvelier  speaks soothingly in funeral director tones, Vander Zalm  burbles about how "things will go on". He also thinks a  new party will be "detrimental", although he does not  specify for whom or in what way. Of course, he has no one  to thank but himself for unleashing this Frankenstcinian  new parly animal.  ("And you know something is happening, but you don't  know what it is, do you Mr. Jones?")  Praise is due  Praising politicians is considered aberrant behaviour by  some, carrying coals to Newcastle by others. But we  subscribe to the philosophy of giving credit where it is due.  So here's to the members of the SCRD board for their  exemplary conduct during a recent meeting, conduct entirely becoming a political entity, democratic not only In  word but in deed.  They engaged in an exchange with a citizen which was  characterized by real empathy, interest, understanding and  great individual forebearance on the part of the directors.  They listened, really listened, and responded with  something other than the canned cliches, evasions, and  condescending shine-ons one might expect from "government".  On a very basic level, it was all no big deal. A citizen,  upset and confrontive, not only received a full hearing, but  was engaged in a meaningful dialogue where all involved  came away changed, enriched in some small way.  At that particular meeting, at least, the SCRD directors  acted more like statesmen than politicians, and for this  they deserve notice.  Fudging it  As recently as February 22, MLA for Mackenzie  Harold Long addressed the SCRD-sponsored Ferry  Forum and denied any knowledge that a "done deal" for  a fast ferry service had been struck.  At the time that Mr. Long spoke, media  outlets���including the CBC���were reporting that Island  Development Group Ltd. of Victoria had been chosen lo  institute such a service between Vancouver and the Sunshine Coast.  Yet only last Thursday, a scant two-and-a-half weeks  later, Long's name appeared prominently in a Ministry of  Transportation and Highways news release announcing  the consummation of the phantom ferry deal.  In the absence of any other credible explanation for  Long's improbable ignorance (the charitable interpretation, that is), must we conclude that Long, like so many  politicians, wanted to have it both ways?  In this way he was able to appear at the Forum without  taking any of the heat being generated by coast residents  opposed to the service to say nothing of the underhanded  way his government had brought it about.  fEKKV SCENARIO.?-  It was most Interesting ,o be  in the United States of America  during the lasi lew days of the  Gulf War and the first lew days  of a triumphant peace.  Going clown through  Washington State to Southern  Oregon, there were yellow ribbons tied lo everything and Old  Glory Hew from the backs of  pick-up trucks, front porches  and businesses everywhere.  Messages of solidarity wilh Ihe  American forces leading the  'coalition' in the Gulf appeared  on billboards and store wine  clows in every small town in the  Pacific Northwest, it appeared.  Nol that there was unanimity. In Ashland, Oregon, on the  Wednesday on which peace  broke out Ihere were still protesters with their placards  against the war, for the most  part elderly. "Honk for  Peace," said the signs. Few  were honking during the time I  watched the scene.  I had chosen' my vantdgci  point, across the road from thej  placard bearers, in a tavern  which appeared to be the biker's  bar in lhal small university  town. The comments about the  bearded and burly regulars,  about the protesters and about  Arabs in general, were ribald  and disdainful. America was  puffing oul its collective chest,  with few exceptions, in all its  manifold comers il seemed.  Then there was peace, and as  President Bush said, the  bogeyman of Vietnam memory  had been laid lo rest and  America was whole again.  New Pax  Americana?  MUSINGS  John Burnside  Well, again not entirely. By  coincidence during those few  days I read about veterans of  that more protracted and much  less glorious military adventure.  They were hiding in the jungles  of ihe big island of Hawaii or  lurking in the forests of the  same Pacific Northwest. One  slipped off into the bush with  his knife when passersby appeared; others had vicious  guard dogs on duty at their bush  encampment}. Post Vietnam  stress was Ihe''description'of  (heir condition. War is hell,  especially when you lose.  What is a columnist to do,  who opposed ihe war? One  could reverse directions and  genuflect in the general direction, forgive the pun, of Norman Schwarzkopf and praise  the troops. Or one could main-,  lain an opposition in the face of  glorious victory. I choose the  latter.  Kuwait is saved but in flames  and ruins; Iraq is in the throes  of civil war and could become a  second Lebanon. Bush's New  World Order smacks more than  somewhat of a new Pax  Americana; noted Canadian  thinkers���yes there are some-  Such as Eric Kierans, fret that a  new imperialism is being burn.  The tragic and passionate  dilemmas of the Middle bast arc  today no nearer to solution, it  seems to me, than they were on  January 15.  As for the military triumph,  well I'm no student of military  tactics, but neither have 1 lived  through several major wars and  studied *a little history without  picking up a little objectivity in  the matter of military triumphs.  This was no Vietnam in large  pari, lo paraphrase Joe Louis,  because Ihe Iraqis could hide  but they couldn't run. As soon  as they emerged from iheir well  constructed bunkers, the bare  terrain of the desert offered  them no shelter from the  sophisticated American airborne technology.  This was no Vietnam because  the Iraqis sought to confront  fire with fire in a strangely old-  fashioned way. They were dug  in and they were circumvented.  Excuse me. bin isn't this what  happened to the Maginot line in  1940 when ihe Germans simply  ignored ii and swept around Ihe  edge of it through Belgium into  France?  il will do, 'twill serve, for a  glorious Teal of amis and if il  makes America more at peace  with itself aftei Ihe trauma of  Vietnam one is pleased for our  neighbours of essentially kindly  intentions.  it remains true that the spectacular success of this military  adventure Is unlikely to discredit  the use of military means lo  iol\c the world's ptoblcnis. Il  remains true that America can  no longer afford in the long  lerm lo be Ihe world's policeman. It remains true that if the  tangled pioblcms of our embattled species are to be minimized  one of the first things that must  go is (he use of violence to  achieve solutions.  The glories of the Gulf War  have done nothing to icsolvc the  problems of that atca and done  nothing lo give mankind experience in the exercise of taking  care of business by means of  diplomacy. It will have done  nothing, given the spectacular  success of American technology  in ideal terrain, lo discourage  Ihe use of the world's resources  lo build enormously costly  military arsenals at the expense  of children all over the world  who arc dying of hunger.  I remain as opposed to the  war today as I was in early  January.  LETTERS  Creek meeting  biased, onesided affair  Editor:  Once again a Coast activist,  Donna Shugar, dominates local  headlines, this time in regard to  the recent forest land use  seminar.  Keeping in pace with her  typically negative attitude and  untiring efforts to discredit any  attempt to promote a positive  atmosphere of discussion on  forest issues, and an opportunity to learn what it is she so  strongly protests, Donna goes  on to take a few pot shots at industry and ministry staff, as  well as taking offence at a $10  admission fee which includes  lunch, two coffee breaks, and  helps to offset some of the costs  in setting up a forum of this  scope.  I would hope that groups and  individuals who are genuinely  concerned with integrated  resource management and  related activities within our  forests and watersheds take advantage of this opportunity to  participate. Before we can  change and improve our  management system, we should  more or less understand and  familiarize ourselves with what  it is we want to change.  Donna claims the seminar is  "very biased". I disagree.  However, the February 13  meeting al Roberts Creek Hall,  case in point, was extremely  biased, and one-sided, to say  the least. In regards to the offensive $10 admission fee for  the seminar, 1 noticed donations  being accepted at Roberts Creek  Hall for coffee and cookies, as  well as tin cans being passed  around for cash donations (the  proceeds, I heard someone say,  were going to help feed hungry  horses in the Interior).  The concept of an in-house  luncheon is to promote informal discussion on related topics,  as well as to keep the group  together and on schedule for the  afternoon session of the agenda. Ticketing also helps to  maintain fire marshall regulations.  Tom Jackson  Wilson Creek  Yankee 'Big  War Lie' is  assailed  Editor:  Modern wartime civilian  casualty statistics would indicate  that about half a million  children will have been killed or  maimed in the Gulf War. Only  cowards would jeopardize the  lives of children in order to  maintain their own safety. By  any rational standards Bush,  Mulroney and their supporters  in the Gulf War are anything  but courageous.  According to post WWII war  statistics, 80 per cent of modern  wartime casualties are civilians.  Of those, 60 per cent are  children. Accepting the Pentagon's own estimates of  200,000 Iraqi soldiers dead, we  must estimate the total number  of casualties at about one  million. The number no doubt  rises dramatically if disease and  death due to war-induced lack  of sanitary water and medical  supplies are included.  The rationale for the bombing of Baghdad and other cities  was to reduce the risk to  "allied" soldiers. In other  words, our fear for our own  safety led us to bomb cities in  the certain knowledge that  many innocent civilians, including lots of children, would  be hurt. The American general  in charge of the allied attack admitted thai front line Iraqi  soldiers did not want to fight  but were coerced by firing  squads into standing on the firing line. The "great allied victory" therefore, was nothing  but a slaughter of innocents.  Still, the Americans will fete  their brave men returning from  the jaws of death. Cowardice  will parade as courage and the  big war lie will be complete.  Roger Lagasse  Reader supplies 'nitpick' and elucidation  Editor:  I'd like to nitpick two items in  the "Save Ihe Strait" article,  and to relate an environmental  tale to your readers.  Firstly our proper name is the  Canadian Paperworkcr's  Union, and secondly wc arc  calling with other groups for Ihe  zero discharge of organo-  chlorine emissions. Organo-  ehlorines are produced when  chlorine or chlorine dioxide is  used in the ktalt bleaching process. They produce toxic compounds in Ihe effluent which  bio-accumulates in Ihe food  chain. Its measurement in the  effluent is an AOX reading.  The gases also pose a health  hazard lo ourselves. Our individual daily exposure has not  been monitored in the workplace, even though WCB regulations for exposure arc in  place.  In Germany there is a strong  environmental movement. Currently there is a proposal before  Ihe German House requiring  lhat pulp bleaching wilh  chlorine be banned from import  beginning in July 1991. The  mills there have strict AOX  regulations in place now.  HSPP with its mill is now  producing two low AOX pulps  which have been well received,  leading to increased sales.

What concerns me is the  way in which you printed the  picture of Hyak's blubber with  a "scant" caption. 1 was shocked. Instead of going to the  aquarium and getting the truth  of the matter, you planted a  seed and let people's imagina-,  lions go wild. I got caught in  your trap and had horrible visions of what had become of our  whale friend.  I immediately phoned the  aquarium with my concerns and  Gil Hewlett took the time to till  me in on the details (something  you couldn't be bothered to  do). I feel thai your paper failed  immensely in your journalism  ^tactics.   I   don't   necessarilv  believe in keeping whales in  aquariums, thai is not the issue  here. If Hyak wasn't happy and  loved he would nol have chosen  to live for 2.) years in captivity.  He would have simply died.  He was a very good ambassador for ihe oreas and 1 feel that  the aquarium's mourning staff  did the best that they knew how  with his burial. What happened  was unfortunate, but also  understandable.  In future, I hope your paper  will take the time to research  your articles a bit more  thoroughly and not play games  with your readers' minds and  emotions.

Mr. Harold Long, MLA  Sunshine Coast/Powell River  Dear Mr. Long:  The Ministry of Transportation has disregarded the real  needs of the commuters presently using the BC ferry services,  by not entering into consultation with Coast residents or  local elected government officials.  The Sandwell Report, upon  which the ministry is basing its  decision regarding the high  speed commuter ferry service, is  riddled with contradiction and  falls far short of a comprehensive assessment of the needs of  Coast residents.  Projections made by the  Sandwell group are based upon  data collected under many false  assumptions. (Appendix 2, page  7) "Enthusiasm for the new service is attributed to a proposed  cost of $4.50" return. The actual revenue figure (page 6 of  ihe preamble) based upon a  ridership of 1370 per day indicates a fare of $16.  The Sandwell group assumed  that   all   commuters   from  Langdale are on the 6:20 am  service. Our figures indicate  that approximately 60 per cent  of daily commuters are on this  sailing with another 40 per cent  on the 8:30 am sailing. The  Sandwell figure is grossly inaccurate because the survey used  by them, conducted by the  Campbell Goodell Consultants  Ltd., sampled too few individuals to give reliable results.  The absolute number of people  sampled was 132 people on the  Langdale to Horseshoe Bay leg,  with no indication as to which  sailings.  Twenty-nine per cent of  respondents were commuters.  This amounts lo approximately  38 people of our estimated total  of approximately 400 to 500  regular commuters. By Sand-  well's own figures, 65 per cent  of the southbound (Langdale to  Horseshoe Bay) travellers were  headed for destinations in the  Lower Mainland other than  downtown. If ihis is the case,  how well is a ferry service to  downtown going to assist commuters?  By our estimates, less than 30  per cent of regular commuters  are destined for downtown. The  Sandwell Report predicts that  50 per cent of the total traffic  on the present ferry would  switch to the new fast passenger  ferry based upon their figures.  How could this be possible  when 65 per cent of those  surveyed are headed elsewhere?  False assumptions such as these  are throughout the report.  A final note on this matter  relates to actual ridership  figures from BC Ferries at  Horseshoe Bay, indicating that,  contrary to the Sandwell  estimate of 1370 on the com  muter runs, there are in fact less  than half this number, even on  the busiest days.  To outline all of the false  assumptions and errors within  this report would take considerably more time. Please  read the report for confirmation.  I am concerned that your lack  of involvement in this matter indicates a lack of representation  and leadership where the needs  of your constituants are concerned. Please address this matter as soon as possible. RSVP.  Thank you.  John P. MacDonald  Sunshine Coast  Commuters' Association  Re-correcting  a correction  Editor:  We appreciate the "Editor's  Note" in last week's issue, correcting the previous error identifying our candidate, Howard  White, as the writer of the harshly worded attack on Gordon  Wilson. As you pointed out, the  letter was indeed written by our  old friend, W.L. White, who is  no relation to Howard.  While some of Bill White's  sentiments we might agree with,  the "vim and vitriol" of his  boilermaker's union language  went somewhat beyond our  tastes, and it was an embarrassment to our campaign to have  the letter misattributed to  Howard White. We would have  wished for a more conspicuous  correction of the error.  We also wish to state that  Howard White and his campaign do not share Bill White's  view that the Coast News' interview of Gordon Wilson was  biased or defensive of Wilson.  We saw it as objective reporting  of Wilson's statements, and we  continue to respect the reportage of the Coast News.  W. B. Forst, Co-chair  Howard White  NDP Election Committee  Lay off poor  Yoko, please  Editor:  I enjoyed Joyce Ostry's article but for her poor analogy ir  regard lo Yoko Ono.  Certainly war is profitable,  but lo pin blame on an eccentric  feminist with a heart of gold,  that has done much for peace, is  unforgivable.  I would suggest that the  writer look elsewhere to find  people cashing in on any war,  rather than a peace activist.  That Lennon's relentless efforts saved thousands of lives  during as many as four separate  US governments (and surveillance by same) is a tribute to the  man. The individual that  enlightened him, Yoko Ono,  was monitored post-Lennon by  a government indulging in mini  wars.  Lennon and Ono knew years  ago, that to alter peoples'  perception of war, was to ex  pose war for what it is. To do  that one has to manipulate the  media in much the same way as  was done splendidly in this most  recent war.  Perhaps Joyce Ostry could  devote greater time analyzing  monies spent in surveillance of  John Lennon and Yoko Ono.  Robert Gerow  Shugar motives  are questioned  Editor:  An article on the front page  of the March 4 issue of the  Coast News contained some excerpts from a letter by Donna  Shugar to which I take exception.  In commenting on the upcoming Forest Land Use Seminar on March 9, Ms Shugar  stated that, "It appears that a  very biased view of forest planning is to be expressed", that  "industry and ministry staff  will "undoubtedly" be compensated by their employers for  their "day at the seminar" and  that she was "offended" that a  $ 10 fee is being charged to cover  the costs of the seminar.  As a member of the committee organizing this event, I do  not expect to be compensated  by my employer for my "day at  the seminar". When I care  about an issue, I'm quite  prepared to give freely of my  time without expecting to be  compensated for my efforts, as  I'm sure Ms Shugar does for  issues that she believes in.  On the topic of bias, we have  gone to considerable lengths to  book speakers from a variety of  backgrounds to speak on many  divergent forestry issues. Of the  six booked to speak, there is.  only one representative each  from industry and the Ministry  of Forests.  Finally, I find it quite upsetting, although very illuminating  as to her motives, that Ms  Shugar would go to such lengths  to try to discredit our efforts,  even before the seminar has  taken place.  David C. Bebb, R.P.F.  Kids warn of  trail dangers  Editor's Note: A copy of the  following  was   received   for  publication.  SCRD  Subject: Chapman Creek Trail  Attn. Mr. Gurney:  We, the Grade 4 class of  Davis Bay School, went for a  hike up the Chapman Creek  trail. We are concerned about  the safety of persons who might  use this trail.  We noticed severe trail  washout opposite the fish hatchery area. It is very dangerous  here.  We suggest the trail be  rerouted further up from the  edge. About 15 minutes past  this area, we could not safely  continue because of many large  trees fallen across the trail.  These trees need to be removed  soon.

Here she studies her Kindergarten lessons on Ihe kitchen table at  home. See story. ���Rose Nicholson pholo  by Rose Nicholson  Megin Marion is going to  school For the first time this  year���taking Grade II and 12  at Chatelech High School. Up  until now, she has been one of a  large number of students who  live loo far from regular schools  and take most of their schooling  through corespondence courses.  In BC, correspondence  school courses have, for many  years, been available through  the Ministry of Education in  Victoria. Recently, the ministry  reorganized its system, separating ihe province into several  regions. In an interview wilh the  Coast News, Carol Mouat and  Andree Hullah of the Greater  Vancouver Regional Correspondence School described  the services available.  Correspondence school  courses for the regular school  curriculum are available from  Kindergarten to Grade 12.  Students take the courses for a  variety of reasons. Many, like  Megin, live in remote areas, and  are not able to get to a regular  school. Some are not able to attend school for health reasons,  others take courses not available  in (he school they are attending.  Older students who may have  left high school to go to work  often finish their education with  correspondence courses, and  some,   who  are  involved  in  athletic programs with heavy  training schedules and travel,  keep abreast of their schooling  with the help of correspondence.  A lucky few have taken time  oul for travel or to live in other  countries. Andree, who is  responsible for elementary  students, said that many  families who are spending a few  years working abroad use the  courses to keep their children  current with BC standards.  "Some of my students are on  long sailing trips with their  parents," she added. "I get the  most wonderful letters that say  things like, 'We couldn't do  your unit on trees because there  isn't a tree in sight.' Or they  send me a map of some place  like the Solomon Islands, saying, 'This is where we are  now.' "  Although the majority of  students fit into the appropriate  age level for their grade, occasionally, an older, or even an  adult student needs to catch up  on material lhat is designed for  younger students.  "In cases like that," said  Carol, "we redesign the  material to make it suitable for  the older student."  Both Carol and Andree  agreed that correspondence  demands a strong commitment  on the part of the student. They  estimate that each course takes  about ISO hours to complete,  "and a lot of self-discipline."  In the case of elementary  students, it means that parents  need to spend up to about four  hours a day helping their  children because most of the  material is written.  Carol and Andree explained  that the reorganized system,  which has been in operation for  about a year, is considerably  more efficient in terms of turnaround time and personal contact with students. A number of  'markers' in the Vancouver area  mark the student's work within  24 hours, though time spent in  the mail can mean another week  at either end.  "With overseas students,"  said Andree, "we give them  several months, or a whole year  of work at once."  Carol and Andree were on  the Sunshine Coast to visit their  students here. "We like to make  contact as often as we can,"  said Carol.  With their territory covering  the Vancouver area, the Sunshine Coast and the Squamish  Valley as far as Whistler, that's  a tall order, but one that is  being very successfully filled.  Information on correspondence courses can be obtained from counselors at most  schools, or by writing to the  Greater Vancouver Regional  Correspondence School, 530  East 41st Avenue, Vancouver,  V5W 1P3. The telephone  number is 660-7947.  Beached birds  How many sea birds normally wash up on our beaches?  What species and ages are Ihey? How often do oiled birds  come ashore as victims of small, unreported oil spills?  Well, Ihe Royal British Columbia Museum has what Is called a "Beached Bird Survey" underway, an ambitious effort  which Alan Burger has been in charge of for Ihe past Iwo  years. He���and Ihe museum���are looking for local residents  to participate in Ihe survey. This entails selecting a stretch of  beach and walking it once a month on a routine basis to  observe and report.  For those interested, Alan Burger can be reached at 270  Trevac Place, RR#3, Victoria, BC, V8X 3X1. Or contact the  Sunshine Coast Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre at 885-5997.

Many had heard me talking  with a fellow mountain dweller  over the airways and often  thought it would be an experience to live in the woods. I  didn't mind company now and  then, so after getting to know  them over the radio I would invite them up so they could get  an idea as to what mountain living was all about. Though some  had dreams of leaving Ihe city  and carving their homes out of  the wilderness, none ever did  that I know of.  Aside from the good people  on the radio there were always  the 'Turkeys' who didn't have  enough intelligence to carry on  a conversation, so they would  do their best to spoil it for  others... but then life has it's little irritations. CB enabled me  (who is somewhat allergic to  civilization) to sit down in a  place of comfort with a coffee  and talk with others as though  no barriers existed. Nobody had  a face or knew where the other  lived, and because of this many  who wouldn't otherwise have  opened up, came out of their  shells.  Because of the fact that when  you have the 'Key' (push lo talk  button) down the person you're  talking with can't talk back to  you, unlike regular conversations over the phone or in person, you can always get your  two bits worth in. Naming  nobody in particular, because  of this last feature I've always  felt that 2-way radio could be an  important tool in teaching the  art of conversation.  By far the most rewarding experiences I've had on the radio  were being involved in search  and rescue operations. From my  vantage point on the rock, over  the years, 1 received many  distress calls from people  nobody else could hear���many  of whom were in life threatening situations. From slides on  the Squamish Highway, to people who had become stuck on  top of mountains during blizzards, you name it. By far the  most frequent calls came when a  gale warning was up for the  strait, and some small crafts  had gotten caught trying to get  in.  After receiving a call from a  vessel in distress, I would then  have to contact someone in  Vancouver or elsewhere with a  phone to call the appropriate  rescue outfit. Many times it  would be the Coast Guard and  they would send out the hovercraft which I had to 'talk into'  the floundering boat's location  until they could establish visual  and or radio contact with them.  It was nerve wracking at  times, especially the bad cases  where you knew that somebody's life was depending on  you and the radio line. One occasion I'll never forget, it was  night time and there was a hell  of a storm blowing and 1 picked  up a very weak and 'frantic' call  for help. It was the kind of call  that makes the hairs on the back  of you neck tingle and you get a  bit of a rush... there were a lot  of prank calls from time to  time, but the real ones had a  feeling about them.  In getting back to the person  and trying to calm him enough  lo get important information, I  found the reason his signal was  so weak was that his battery  compartment was flooded and  the water was beginning to short  things out. To make mailers  worse, he had been drifting and  didn't have a clue as to where he  was. I had to relay what lights  and such, including stars he  could see lo the Coast Guard  and in turn ask him questions  thai they put to me. It was four  and a half hours after the call  came in, lhat the Coast Guard  finally found him and when  they did, they had lo pull him  from the waler. There's no  doubt in my mind that man  knew the true value of a 2-way  radio.  Electromagnetic waves that  travel through the air lo be  reconstructed at ihe other end  become a familiar voice...radio  is something we never think  about, just take for granted  unless some event in our lives  causes us lo re-examine it.  I wish to dedicate this article  lo Ihe memory of Ala- McPherson, known to his CB friends as  'Coasl Watcher One'. He worked as a CB radio monitor for  the Lifeboat Society and in doing so assisted many small  boaiers who had problems on  the waters of Howe Sound and  beyond. He also became a greal  help lo truckers that drive the  Squamish Highway who knew  how lo call him where he could  be found day or night on the  emergency channel, nine. My  life was enriched for having  known Alec, a man who truly  knew what 'Friendship through  Radio' was all about, (73's and  78's).  Rotary  Connection  This Thursday, after a year headquartering at the  Omega Restaurant, the Gibsons Rotary Club will move lo  Ihe Cedars Inn. The change was occasioned by increased  membership which brought about a need for a larger  meeting space.

February saw  all my seeds go into the  soil���the beets, leeks, and lettuce; the broccoli, cauliflower,  and kohlrabi; even the  tomatoes, peppers, and basil.  All of them have now poked  their small green seed leaves oul  of the sterile potting soil and are  now basking and showing their  true leaves under the fluorescent  light of two gro-lux bulbs.  I invested in a small gro-lux  plant light over 10 years ago and  have been using the same two  bulbs to bring forth life and  stimulate growth during the  time of year it's not-quite-but-l  wish-it-were spring. If the  weather cooperates a little, the  plant flats get shuttled out the  door for natural light and a  breath of fresh air to help  harden them off and prepare  them for their eventual out-  doorsy life. The spinach and  peas, already sending their roots  into the rich humus of the  garden, are protected from  chilly night temperatures with a  blanket of plastic fashioned  with a little wire into a cloche or  cold frame. With a few simple  aids as these the growing season  and productivity of a northern  garden can be greatly increased.

Many  called  John  their friend  by Ruth Forrester, 885-2418  A popular and well known  Redrooffs man, John Winton,  will be missed by his family and  by many of us who called him  our friend. He bravely fought  his illness for quite some time  unlil his final struggle ended on  March 2, at the age of 82.  John was a familiar figure on  Redrooffs when, for several  years he would bid a cheerful  time of day to all who passed his  way as he walked, upright, cane  in hand, on his daily walk.  Following retirement from  Standard Oil, John, together  with his wife Phylis, took up  permanent residence at their  home in Damp Bay in 1983,  though Phylis' family had been  coming to their summer place  since 1945.  Surviving are John's loving  wife as well as one son and two  daughters. There are also two  grandsons.  We extend our sympathy to  the family who will miss this  dear, good man.

Coast News, March 11,1991  KEORGE IN GIBSONSi  Stan Trueman honoured  by George Cooper, M6-S520  "I was completely taken by  surprise," said Stan Trueman,  speaking of the birthday  celebration arranged for him by  his family. "I thought 1 was  coming in for a cup of tea with  Mike Bujan at a break in a conference." Stan was quite plainly  delighted with the cordial reception given him by the throng of  well-wishers.  Recollections of the scattered  small buildings that comprised  Howe Sound High School in  1930 brought vivid memories to  a few like Clue Day, a fellow  teacher at thai time. The WI  Hall, quile new then, also housed a classroom in a cellar space.  The West Howe Sound Story  tells, by the way, of the  Dramatic Club's presentation in  1934 of ihe play "Wild Oats  Boy" in the WI Hall, and  names A.S. Trueman as one of  the company along with Wiljo  and Florence Wiren.  Hosted by his sons and  daughters-in-law, Elliott and  Katharine, and Cedric and  Judy, and their daughter Wendy, the party was attended by  former colleagues, students,  and friends of long standing.  Many who attended found it  a time, loo, to renew acquaintance wilh those Ihey had not  seen for some time, and to chat  and reminisce. Son James, in  Omaha, Nebraska, sent his affectionate regards.  Messages came from friends  in California, Ottawa,  Kamloops, and Vancouver.  From Shaughnessy Hospital,  Les Peterson wrote, "I first  knew you when I was a student  of yours in 1932, and then later  as a colleague. Now in my sojourn in hospital you have  visited me regularly and often.  You are a true friend."  Alderman Margaret Morrison noted that the street signs  bearing Stan's surname had not  had consistent spelling, but that  had been corrected by the  town's works superintendent.  She presented Stan with a large  new "Trueman" street sign,  confirmation of the corrected  spelling.  The rector of St. Bartholomew's, Esther North,  gathered the family about Stan  for a laying on of hands while  she offered prayer.  Among those who came to  the microphone with recollections were Cloe Day, Mike Bujan, Syd Potter, Bca Rankin,  Gary Foxall���all former colleagues. All remembered a  cheerful, friendly, and  hospitable friend.  Stan was a walking man, and  never owned a car. Elliott tells  of the one adventure his dad  had driving a car. "He never  did have a driver's license.  Once, in order to get to town,  he was given the use of a car  with brief instructions. When  Dad got to the town he realized  he did not know how to stop the  car, and went right on through  before he figured something  out. Got back quite safe,  though."  And from all who attended, a  thank you for the time of pleasant conversation and to the  catering people, commendations.

BARGAINS  CHISIO ON MONDAYS  SUNSHIIMK COAST Nl IKSI HY  88fi ?/%  1HARBOUR WATCHl  by Oak Petty, 8SM22S  Everytime you pick up a local  newspaper these days, you read  more and more about the controversy over the forest industry. Sometimes it's good  news, but mostly it isn't.  A lot of people get their information through the media or  from what they have heard.  Some have clambered through  logged areas and many others  react by what they see in the  scars of logging but the full picture never seems to be  presented.  The focus tends to lean  toward the harvesting sector of  the industry because of the environmental and visual impact,  but to ignore other aspects is  unfair.  For instance, a petition has  surfaced in Egmont calling for  the immediate halt of all logging  on the Sunshine Coast. It took  no time at all for signatures to  gather on the page, which indicates that we have an environmentally conscious community but, methinks a plea for  increased funding for all environmental issues, including  forest management and reforestation, would be a more  realistic approach.  Let's face it. The forest industry is going to be around for  awhile. Rather than always  taking the position of placing  the industry in the bad guy role,  we should try to work with  them and have them work with  us.  Admittedly, big mistakes  have been made in the past and  probably always will be made  but I do see (he industry making  an attempt, no matter how  seemingly small, at trying to improve their forest management  policies. Through public  pressure and an on-going  learning process, changes are  coming about in at least a few  areas of which I am aware. For  example, since 1988, the B.C.  Ministry of Forests has implemented a zero tolerance  policy on all projects which has  made for smaller cutblocks, and  less   wastage   left   behind.  Sawmills have been retooled to  process smaller timber. In the  past 10 years, the logging work  force has been decreasing and  the silviculture work force has  been increasing. In another 10  years, reforestation will be a  larger pan of the industry than  logging.  This is a large province with  few places left that haven't been  logged. Certainly, I feel that the  last stands of first growth forest  should be saved, as well as areas  that are considered spiritually or  ecologically sensitive. That  leaves a fairly large amount of  area which, if managed wisely,  could provide ample sustainable  yield and still leave room for  everyone else.  Optimistically, we should be  heading towards a future forest  management plan which could  embrace ideas such as land  stewardship and more manual,  labour intensive programs  aimed at tending plantations,  thus reducing the need for herbicide application now  favoured.  Cooperation has to be a key  factor in seeing these dreams  become a reality. Instead of  complaining about something  without checking the facts, or  signing a petition which would  put your neighbour out of  work, we should try and see our  forests, trees and all. We owe it  to ourselves and to future  generations.  PARTY TIME  In the celebrating department, the Egmont Community  Hall was once again the scene of  mirth and merriment as a good  crowd turned out to dance  winter out of their bones.

But if you  don't file a tax return because you don't owe any taxes, you  could miss out.  Is tax filing easier this year?  Revenue Canada has introduced new measures to simplify  the tax filing process. The guides use clearer, plainer language,  the Special return has been trimmed down and there are two  new "no calculation" returns. The one-page, gold 65 Plus  return is for seniors with income from pensions or interest. The  white Short return is for people, like students, with simpler tax  situations. If you choose one ot the "no calculation" returns,  we'll do all the calculations, including any federal or provincial  credits you may be eligible for.  Got some tips?  First, look in the Guide that comes In your tax package. It gives  you step-by-step instructions and helpful tax tips. Read the  explanations for the lines that apply to you, and ignore those  that don't. If your income situation hasn't changed much from  last year, you can use last year's return as a reference.  What if I have questions?  If you can't find the answers in the Guide, you can call the  people at Revenue Canada. The best times to get through  are before 10:00 a.m. and after 2:00 p.m. From February  25 through April 30, Revenue Canada's phone hours are  extended to 8:00 p.m., Monday to Thursday. There's also an  automated phone service called T.I.P.S., for answers to common questions. For a complete list of services and phone  numbers in your region, see your Guide.  What other services are available?  You can visit Seasonal Tax Assistance Centres in convenient  locations, like shopping malls, for information, guides and  forms. See your local newspaper for times and locations.  There's also a video called "Stepping Through Your Tax  Return" that you can borrow from public libraries or your  district taxation office.  Anything I should watch for?  Make sure all the personal information printed on your return  is correct, especially your address. Before you start, make sun  you have all your receipts and information slips. Check your  calculations, and attach all the information that's asked for in  the return. These steps will help avoid delays in getting your  refund.  If I move, will I still get my cheque?  If you're moving, call or write Revenue Canada with your new  address, so we can make sure your cheque gets to you. If you  have more questions, talk to the people at Revenue Canada  Taxation.

Aside from your  axe, your songs, and your innate belief in yourself and your  talents, there's your audience,  the one, sometimes elusive  aspect of your life, you just  can't take along with you.  You've got to book a gig and  hope for the best. Oh, if you're  working a club or a concert  sweating an audience falls lo Ihe  promoter, but often you  are the promoter as well as the  main attraction.  Honolulu-born Wesley  Furumoto has spent ihe last 20  years on the road, largely in the  islands his grandfather came to  from Hiroshima at the turn of  the century. "My dad's dad  came to Hawaii to work the  sugar cane fields," the 40 year  old Furumoto recalled during a  casual, drop-in interview late  last week. "He's been a rice  farmer in Japan who married a  'picture bride.' "  Wesley plays six to 12-string  guitars and "most other  stringed instruments", as well  as having penned 30 songs,  some of which have made it onto the two albums he's cut  "which I sell at my gigs."  Accompanying Furumolo  was his California-bred wife,  Vickie. Although married for  only a couple of years, their  romance goes back more than  15. "I was having my baby at  home on Maui 17 years ago,"  says Vickie, laughingly adding  that "Of course I was married,  to somebody else at the time. I  had seen Wesley play  somewhere on the islands and I  called him up and asked if he'd  play  and   sing   to   help   me  Singer-  songwriter  Wesley  Furumoto.  -Jan Michael  Sherman photo j   through the birth thing, you  know?"  Wesley grins shyly, and adds  that "I later wrote 'So Tlie  River Flows' ��� one of my  favourite songs ��� based on the  event."  Wesley and Vickie didn't see  each other for 15 years, each  going about separate lives  which, ultimately, wound up  working their way back  together. Remembers Vickie  "We found each other again in  a fruit store in Maui���totally by  chance. I'd left my second husband three months earlier... 1  wasn't single for long."  "It was magic," affirms  Wesley. "We were both 'ripe'  for each other at that point. I'd  been through a bad marriage  for the past 10 years, and 1 was  ready for something to  happen."  Furumoto specializes in both  traditional and "contemporary  original" Hawaiian music, and  cracked up entirely when asked  if he did any Don Ho material.  He and Vickie have been spending the last year here on the  Sunshine Coast, but hint at a  little homesickness for the  islands.  On Saturday, March 23, at  the Gibsons Motor Inn, Wesley  will be presenting an evening of  his music, his hope being,  naturally enough, that there's a  rabid contingent of coasters out  there enough taken with the  kind of music he sings and plays  to fill the hall and raise the roof.  But because Wesley's a man  of many musical facets���and  because most people like  variety���he'll be featuring more  than a taste of reggae, calypso,  rock and roll, and folk.  Oh yeah, if you want more  information you can call the  promoters at 886-9621. (Just  ask for Wesley or Vickie).  Aloha.  SYLVIA  Make the Sylvia part  of your Vancouver adventure,..

Festival  of The Arts held May 22 to 26  in North Vancouver. The jurors  delivered their evaluations to an  audience at the Arts Centre last  Sunday.  Ron Patterson will be showing raku pottery simultaneously  with the regional show. He says  that "Raku allows one to loosen  up and be creative���the  elements of pottery seem to  flow together as one. Taking the  red-hot pot from the kiln and  covering it with sawdust, surrendering so much control over  a piece constructed with such  care, goes against the grain of  traditional pottery making. At  the moment, when the still-hot  pot emerges from the sawdust  and smoke and water is splashed on the surface to freeze the  colour, earth fire and water are  in my hands and I'm back in  control."  Another good chance to meet  and talk with artists and jurors  is the reception for Ron Patterson and the regional show  artists this coming Saturday,  March 16, 2 pm to 4 pm, at the  Arts Centre. Everyone is  welcome���there will be coffee,  tea, and plates of snacks and  hors d'oeuvres provided to fuel  the animated discussions typical  of such events.

The road turns sharply  right and begins to climb steeply. The rock formations we are  passing through now are bizar-  rely twisted and crumpled; folded layers of strata exemplifying  the enormous internal pressures  that thrust these mountains into  being a few milennia ago. (The  Rockies are relatively young in  geological reckoning.)  We push uphill for a few  more miles and arrive at the  while, fissured expanse of the  Columbia ice fields, source of  the Columbia River. At the  lodge, we stop for coffee and  sandwiches. Yvonne wants to  take a snowmobile ride across  the glacier but a trip has just left  and it is getting late.  Just beyond the ice fields we  spot a number of people staring  up at the cliffs. The reason is  quickly apparent���there are five  or six mountain sheep moving  nimbly across the slopes. One  ewe has, a lamb with her���a tiny  bewildered creature like a living  toy, hiding in the shadow of its  mother. The acrobatic ovines  are the first wild creatures we  have seen, apart from birds.  They eye us without fear as we  capture them eagerly on film.!  Not far past this point, the  country opens up again and  there are a few more impressive  mountain vistas. But they are  not as striking as some of the  earlier peaks. The Rockies seem  to be winding down. It is almost  as though they are starting to  run out of ideas.  Shortly, we hit the pretty  mountain town of Jasper,  essentially a northern version of  Banff in a more heavily-wooded  setting. Under other circumstances it might seem more  impressive but, in comparison  with the natural wonders we  have just passed through, it appears a bit predictable and mundane. A long ski-lift climbs to  the summit of a bald mountain,  just south of town.

The last  rock of the game which was so  crucial was lost to a brush hair  under the stone. It occurred  because the New Brunswick  ladies lifted their brushes  without making that last stroke  completely across the face of  the stone and they left the debris  behind. Beginner or not, it is a  good lesson to remember.  The teachers' spiel was held  lasi weekend and a good time  was had by all, I hope. Ten  learns took part. Sorry for the  errors in the count of the second  place learns guys, next lime I  promise to add better. The  Turkey shoot was won by Swcr-  vyn Mervyn from downunder.  He put that 'squacking bird'  right on the button. I guess he'll  remember that crazy Canuck  game when he returns home lo  Aussie land.  A date to take note of is  March 27, the date of our an  nual general meeting.

Neighbourhood house  needed  by Rose Nicholson  "There is a great need for a  local community centre in Gibsons," Batyah Fremes told Gibsons aldermen last week.  In a presentation to Council,  Fremes outlined a plan that  would see a 'neighbourhood  house' established in the town.  She said that such houses exist  in "Just about every  neighbourhood in Vancouver,"  with the oldest, the North Shore  Neighbourhood House, establi  shed as far back as I9t6.  According to Fremes, the  function of a neighbourhood  house is to provide for the  unique needs of a community  and "reflect local interests and  concerns." She said that the  many demands on the services  of the Sunshine Coast Community Services Society is a  clear indication of the need for  such a facility in Gibsons.  Fremes, along with Merrily  Corder and Carol Stewart, have  formed the Gibsons Neighbourhood   Society   Steering  Tim Turner, wilh the help of models, a huge relief map and a slide  show, explains the intricacies of the Howe Sound watershed to  students at Langdale Elementary School. There will be another  presentation, for the public, al Langdale School Ihis Tuesday,  March 12 al 7:30 pm. -Ruse Nicholson photo  Committee. They envision a  neighbourhood house in Gibsons that would be a resource  centre for information and services; a space for workshops,  support groups and clubs; a  provider of local services and a  local office for Coast wide services; and a meeting place for  common interest groups.  Affiliation with the Greater  Vancouver Association of  Neighbourhood Houses would  make use of that organization's  expertise in fund-raising and  management.  When asked by Alderman  Margaret Morrison how the  Steering Committee proposes to  fund the endeavour, Fremes explained that the United Way  funding available in Vancouver  wouldn't be possible here, but  alternatives would be service  clubs, the Vancouver Foundation and similar funding  organizations.  "Funding for specific programs is available from the umbrella society," Fremes said,  "and they (the Association)  have a lot of credibility with the  recognized funding agencies."  "We've been advised to start  small,���with one program...We  want to find out first what the  community wants most, and  start with that."  Fremes said that existing  neighbourhood houses make  use of a variety of locations,  with some renting space in  larger buildings, while others  have had homes donated or  willed to ihe group.  "We have several options,"  she said. "The Inglis House is a  wonderful idea, but we're not  depending on it. It's up to what  the town ��� the neighbours-  want do to."  Aldermen, along with the  community, have been invited  to a public meeting to discuss  the project on Wednesday,  March 13, al 7:30 pm, in the  Marine Room, below the  library in Holland Park, in Gibsons.

Cable Vision volunteer Mary-  anne West is producing the  event, having set aside her own  "private thoughts" as to  whether the Federal government  will   ultimately   do   anything  Developer  supported  In Wilson  Creek  by Stuart Burnside  "I hide from downtown  Sechelt...there is quite sufficient  congestion," said Wilson Creek  resident Marilee Fowler, speaking in favour of the proposed  Wilson Creek Plaza at a public-  hearing held in Sechelt last  Wednesday.  The hearing, held in the  SCRD boardroom, was filled to  capacity with other Coast  residents���primarily from the  Wilson Creek area���most of  whom echoed Fowler's sentiment regarding the need for improved shopping facilities in  Wilson Creek.  "I'd be quite happy never to  drive to Sechelt," said Creek  resident James Wilson, "...and  the competition (between new  and existing stores) will help  everyone."  The need for more competition to Sechelt stores���and the  prospect of ensuing price wars  ���was one of the main  arguments for the proposed  $2.5 million, 30,000 square foot  "convenience mall"; but there  was dissention.  Vic Vaughan, who owns 10  acres near the development,  voiced concerns that the new  centre would do "little more"  than steal business from  downtown Sechelt. He was also  concerned with what he termed  "the creeping, insidious ribbon  development" that he felt the  new mall represented.  Addressing the Sechelt Council and the general public on  behalf of the owner/developers  of the new mall (Wilson Creek  Developers Ltd.) was the mall's  designer, Gary Puckett, of  Puckett and Associates.  Puckett said that the new  shopping centre would be a  "residential centre" designed to  "harmonize" with the surrounding neighbourhood. It would  provide approximately 70 permanent jobs and 10 to 20 part-  time positions while providing a  tax base of some $35,000. He  was adamant in his opinion that  it would not become a major  retail centre, thereby "stealing  Sechelt's business", but would  only provide convenience services (gas, groceries, restaurants, etc.).  Puckett gave his assurance  I that, if concerns from citizens  arose from any aspect of the  construction or overall design,  the owners of the properly  would be "more than willing to  address those concerns".  Despite demands from the  developers, and some of the  citizens present, that council  vote on the proposal in the  council meeting scheduled to  directly follow the hearing,  Mayor Nancy MacLarty suggested the council refrain from  voting that night, "to give us  (council) enough time to fully  consider everything that's been  said." She did, however, promise that, at the next council  meeting (March 13), council  would provide all necessary  readings and discussion and  possibly, "if it was council's  wish", give final approval.  mmmmmmimmm  w REMEMBER:  If you're going to  gamble with your  SEPTIC TANK  a flush  is better  than a  | full house.  B0NNIEBR00K  INDUSTRIES lto.    I  me* v^^OaK ievm sTemmaie,  *��k For Lucky Larry 886-706^  about Spicer's findings. The  forum was established as a  "grassroots consultation" with  everyday, ordinary Canadians  to solicit their opinions and feelings about their country's future  arid their personal identity as  Canadians.  Moderator for the Channel  Eleven affair will be Mark Neil,  provided by the CFCF for the  occasion. "The evening will be  staggered," said West,  "meaning we'll take short  breaks after each hour. We've  set up three different panels of  five persons each, hopefully including a representative cross-  section of the coast  population."  According to Ms West, the  moderator will be charged with  the responsibility of informing  and driving the agenda. The  call-in segment will probably be  limited to the last 15 minutes of  each hour, to ensure an  "orderly flow" to the panel  discussion. Viewers will be advised of when and what number  to call once the program gets  under way.  "I haven't gone after the  'movers and shakers' for this  program," commented West,  alluding to politicians and other  well-known coast types, "It  should properly be a program  involving the grassroots, people  who don't often have the opportunity to be heard in this  fashion."

The work of Nora Palrich, s Vancouver painter and muralist, Is  featured on a special edition poster promoting the 1991 Census  among Canada's multicultural community. June 4th Is Census  Day.  Sweet fund raiser  As a member of the "business community" of the Sunshine Coast, we at the Coast News were quite taken by the  novel approach to fund raising hit on by the Sunshine Coast  branch of the SPCA.  Along with a self-addressed envelope for "financial treats"  (donations) those wily caretakers of stray and abandoned  animals have enclosed an adorable white chocolate pussycat.  All to help make their point that II would be "a treat" to be  able to "continue to provide a low cost spaying/neutering  program...to have our very own Sunshine Coast Animal  Shelter."  (We interrupt this news bulletin to...mmm, delicious...take  a bite of the white chocolate pussycat.)  Council  turns down  advance fees  by Rose Nicholson  An offer of advance payment of a one per cent utility tax  by Centra Gas on projected sales of natural gas in the Town  of Gibsons was turned down by Council last week. A motion  by Alderman Margaret Morrison to accept the money and  "put it in the bank so we could earn interest" failed when  Alderman Walter Bradshaw, the only other alderman present, declined to second the motion.  The gas company has been ordered by the Utilities Commission to make the advance payment available to  municipalities to offset inspection costs involved with installation. Because gas will not be supplied until 1992, it would be  difficult at this time to estimate gas revenues on which the one  per cent tax would be paid.  The Regional District has asked the Town of Gibsons to  add block number indicators to road signs in the town to  standardize the numbering system as an aid to fire and other  emergency services. It was pointed out that the Town would  be responsible for the cost of these changes, rather than the  Department of Highways as in the case of the Regional  District. Staff was directed to look into the most economical  way of making the changes.  An offer of a donation of up to $500 for shrubs to beautify  town property on South Fletcher was regretfully turned down  by Council. Peter and Vivian Fry, who live opposite the  tennis courts on South Fletcher, asked that Council remove  or prune the trees along the roadside because of their "unfortunate shape", and offered to contribute to the cost of  replacement.  "It would cost $4000 or $5000 just to take the trees out,"  commented Alderman Bradshaw.  "We could be setting a precedent," added Mayor Eric  Small. "We might find ourselves being asked to remove all  sorts of trees on city property."  Alderman Morrison reported that January was a record  month for Gibsons library with close to 5000 books going out  and another record of 461 books borrowed in one day.  "The library is bursting at the seams," she said. "This  demonstrates the need for a new facility. There is a building  committee and a fund-raising committee, ...but they're very  frustrated. They don't know which way to go until decisions  are made (by Council on plans for Holland Park).  "If the Town is unwilling to let them expand on the present  site, they would like to find other municipal property on  which to build."  Council approved a recommendation by Planner Rob  Buchan that Thurber Environmental Consultants conduct an  environmental and geotechnical study as a prerequisite to the  updating of the Official Community Plan.

Crime wave deterrent  by Stuart Burnside  The streets of Sechelt may  soon be patrolled by private  security personnel in lieu of  "adequate police protection,"  according to Sechelt business  woman Nancy Palmer.  Palmer, who owns both the  Exlras Boutique and Little Extras store on Cowrie Street, told  the Coast News thai a bid had  been solicited for the hiring of a  security guard (and possibly an  accompanying dog) to patrol  Sechelt's downtown area during  ihe "wee hours" of the morning  when there is no RCMP present.  "The new guard would be  paid for through the combined  efforts of Sechelt business  owners," said Palmer, "we  can't wait for the government to  provide additional RCMP staffing."  Palmer also feels it would  lake too long lo get any kind of  action from the Sechell Council. "We're scared...we need  something done now," she said.  The decision by merchants to  look into the feasibility of hiring  privale security stemmed from a  meeting of business owners,  RCMP, and the Crime Stoppers  Organization held lasl Wednesday.  "The Cafe Pierrot (where the  meeting was held) was "standing room only," and Corporal  Bruce Haynes of the RCMP  furnished the gathering with  statistics of the recent "crime  wave" (60 break-ins in ihe lasl  year, nine since January), as  well as advice on what precautions store owners might take.  "He suggested improved  alarm systems, leaving lights on  in our businesses, and little  things thai might deter would-  Good old fashioned service  Roofing ��� Rerooflng  Renovations ��� Repairs  Call for free estimate  885-4190  NOW IN GIBSONS!

"They (RCMP) just don't  have the manpower," she said.  When the Coast News first  talked to Corporal Haynes  about the crime spree back in  December, he attributed much  of the problem to the time of  year���Christmas.  At that time, the Stedmans  store had suffered its fourth  break-in and had been driven to  installing bars on the windows.  When asked, in December,  why there wasn't a 24 hour  presence by RCMP officers,  Haynes said, "When you've got  a problem, then yes, you need a  police presence around, the  clock, but when there is no problem you end up with police on  duty with nothing to do."  Haynes notes, however, thai  in any event, additional police  staffing isn't likely on the Coast  until the population at least  doubles.  Whether the so-called crime  wave, and the steps being contemplated by business interests,  is confined to the Sechelt area is  open to question, given the  most recent crime statistics  released by the authorities in  Gibsons.  In a recent news release  covering the time period from  February 28 to March 6, Gibsons RCMP lists some seven  crimes against property recorded in the Gibsons area alone. Of  these, at least two were targeted  against businesses.  Park Plaza  Complex to  break  ground  Gibsons Park Piaza will be  turning the sod with the golden  shovel. Owners of the new  85,000 square feet of shopping  centre will announce the official  ground breaking ceremony  shortly before the middle of  April. Actual work on the site  will commence on March 18 by  Bennico Builders.  David Longprc, owner of the  new centre, said that problems  with sanitary and water servicing for the site had been  solved, and that traffic flow in  the area or Pratt Road will be  vastly improved with a traffic  light and full left turn lanes.  Currently, the Ministry of  Municipal Affairs is processing  the application by Gibsons for a  boundary extension to include  the shopping centre lands. This  process should be complete in  late March or early April.  Longpre told the Coasl News  that "45,000 man days of  labour will take place over the  next six months. Over 200 permanent new jobs will be added  to the community. Budding entrepreneurs will have new  business opportunities.  Valuable tourist dollars will  have more reasons to stay on  the  Sunshine  Coast."  Gibsons Park Plaza will open  to the public in early October. A  number of exciting new tenants  will be announced in the next  few weeks.
