V8V   1X5 95.09  Attention:Rod Cardin  NEWS  50 cents per copy on newsstands  BUSHED     1945  December 19,1994 Volume 49 Issue 51  Sechelts sign land claim framework agreement  St. Mary's  gamers  provincial  funding  3  Home support  workers move  toward strike,  talks to  ^commence *" ��  Gibsons  elementary  Christmas  concert..  nofiddlin'  around  9  btfi  by Darah Hansen  Officials with the Sechelt Indian Band  and federal and provincial governments put  their initials to a framework agreement this  week that will serve as a guide to up-coming land claim negotiations.  The agreement was signed last Wednesday, Dec. 14 in Victoria by chief negotiators fiom all three governments including  Chief Carry Feschuk of the Sechelt band.  The signing marked the official  entrance of the Sechelt band into the realm  of negotiations, scheduled to begin in  February, 1995, and wrapped up the two-  day conference. "It feels good but it's just  the beginning of the process," said Tom  Paul, a former Sechelt chief, now administering the land claims for the band.  Last week's meeting marked the fourth  round of main table discussions the band  has held with both the federal and provincial governments since agreeing to negotiate their land claim under the BC Treaty  Commission earlier this year.  And frustrations among the parties were  evident. According to Paul, a disagreement  early in the meeting over the wording of an  "openness" clause in the framework on the  part of the federal and provincial governments threatened to disrupt the signing of  the framework agreement until the new  year. But in an 11th hour decision, the two  governments were able to find a solution to  the issue and move ahead.  The openness clause determines who  can sit in on the negotiation meetings, how  Ihe public will be informed of the progress  and which documents will be publicly  available. Sechelt band council members  have long stated they have nothing to hide  in reference to the band's land claim,  adding Ihey feel it is not their obligation to  inform third party interests.  Meanwhile, a failure to define the  length of the impending negotiations also  served to negatively impact list week's  meeting. Paul said the band has repeatedly  asked how long the negotiation process is  estimated to last but has not yet received a  definite answer. They've been told to  expect somewhere between six to 18  months, he said.  "That's frustrating but we're finally seeing how the process works," Paul said.  Overall, he said, the band approves of  the Treaty Commission process.  SPCA  news  Eight  members  named  to health  council  by Jane Seyd  A group of eight local people  who will oversee major changes  to the way health care is delivered on the Sunshine Coast have  been appointed to the area's first  community health council.  The council, which will  guide a transition from provincial to local control over health  care budgets and programs, was  named in a ceremony at the  Gibsons Yacht Club Friday  ' afternoon along with several  other health councils and a  regional health board which will  oversee decisions for the entire  Coast-Garibaldi region.  Those named to the Sunshine ,  Coast health counci' include  Stephen Garrett, Billy Griffith,  Duncan Fraser, Shawn Cardinall, John McNevin, Lois  Vader, Nancy Denham, and  Margaret McCaughan-Morri-  son.  In addition, Cardinall will sit  on the regional health board,  along with fellow Sunshine  Coast resident Jo-Anne  McNevin and seven others from  Powell River, Whistler and  Squamish, and Pemberton.  David Schreck, an MLA  from North Vancouver-Lons-  dale and government spokesman  for the ceremony, told the audience regional health boards are  now being set up all across the  country, and called the move an  "experiment in community control."  He also referred to the government's wish to save on  administration costs wilh the  new system, commenting, "if  we are going to preserve Medicare, we can't afford not to  make it work."  turn to health council on page 3  Poised to perform  Alicia Kage adds a dramatic linish to a first run in rehearsal for the Dance Coast Dance  Society's three night presentation at the Raven's Cry Theatre over the weekend.  Joel Johnstone photo  Chatelech book banning sparks public outcry  by Sandra Smith  Book banning on the Sunshine  Coast has sparked attention  across the country and brought  the local school board under public attack.  The local school district office  was flooded with phone calls Friday Dec. 16, after banning New  American and Canadian Poetry  from student-use at Chatelech  Secondary School last week.  The anthology���which features 1960s poetry by Margaret  Atwood, Irving Layton, George  Bowering and Patrick Lane���was  banned for its portrayal of sex,  four-letter words and its "anti-  establishment" point of view  which the school board deemed  inappropriate for young  teenagers.  Trustees voted unanimously in  favour of recomendations made  by a district media review committee struck in November to  deal with a parent's complaint  about the book.  A controversy was sparked  after the story was printed in the  Vancouver Sun and ran on the  national wire service across the  country. It was featured on  BCTV's six o'clock news, the  CBC radio news and Vancouver's 1040 AM radio.  In addition to phone calls  from outraged residents, District  Secetary-Treasurer  Tim Anderson said  he received calls  from the Province,  CBC's Canada AM  and CTV news.  Lane, now a Writing Professor at the  University of Victoria and a former Sunshine Coast resident,  says he is appalled at  the censorship and  has criticized the local community for shielding its children from  reality. "I can't believe the 1950s  have come back," he said.  "You can't deny (teenagers)  the language that exists in the  world around them....You protect your children by allowing  them to know everything, and  then you trust them."  He quoted singer/poet  Leonard Cohen who once said,  "there are no dirty words, only  dirty people."  The anthology, published in  '/ can't see  bow the school  board can  subjectively  apply this  kind of ban'  -Howard White  1971, is noted for being Ihe first  American-published book to feature both Canadian and American  writers. It has been a popular  textbook in high schools and col-        leges across North  America, said  Howard While of  Harbour Publishing  in Pender Harbour.  "It's been used  and read in tousands  of classrooms by  hundreds of thousands of students in  the lasl 25 years. I  find it preposterous  thai it's been  banned....I could understand it  better if it were some kind of  pornographic novel or something...but, this is by no means a  dirty book. If this is too strong for  circulation, nothing is safe from  the censor's axe," White said.  He said he is very concerned  and questioned whether or nol  the school board will apply the  policy to other library books.  "These so-called 'tour-letter  and vulgar words' exist in much  of modern literature and I can't  see how (the school board) can  subjectively apply this kind of  ban. They'd have to remove half  the books in Iheir libraries," he  said, citing Tlw Diviners by Margaret Laurence and even his own  Raincoast Chronicles as examples. "I don't think the school  board can afford to take the position that, every time an individual  parent objects to something in a  book of literature, it should be  removed from the library or put  on reserve."  Sechelt parent Frank Armstrong said the school board's  decision "doesn't seem very  democratic, especially at the  home of the Rockwood Centre  and the Festival of the Written  Arts."  This is not first time the local  school district has dealt wilh  book censorship. Three years  ago, a primary book, Maxine's  Tree, was challenged by the local  brnch of the International Woodworkers of America (IWA) who  opposed the book's environmental point of view.  That story also sparked  national media attention.  The book remains in local  school libraries loday.  Province  makes  offer on  Jedediah  Island  by Darah Hansen  It's not quite the Christmas  gift proponents of Jedediah  Island were hoping for but it is  a step in the right direction.  Last week the provincial  government sent an offer to purchase the 640-acre island to  owners Mary and AI Palmer  who have agreed to review it  with their lawyers.  Wes Umphreys, an official  with the Ministry of Environment coordinating the government's plan to buy Jedediah,  said the funding necessary to  pay for the island is still await-'  ing approval from the provincial  treasury board.  ,; The.board's decision is  expected "soon", Umphreys  said.  ' Meanwhile, Umphreys urged  community groups and individuals to continue raising fundi in  benefit of the island. He said a  strong snow of support for the  Jedediah proposal will likely  help sway the government's  final decision on allocating  funding.  Jedediah Island, located  between Lasqueti and Texada  Islands, went on the market earlier this year after the Palmers  chose to move to Vancouver  Island.  Prior to moving, the couple  had homesteaded the island for  the past 20 years.  The Palmers offered to sell  the island ��� known for its  white sandy beaches, old  growths forest and varied ecosystem ��� for $4 million to the  provincial government to be  used as a public park.  The pricetag is almost half  the island's worth on the real  estate market.  That deal was made even  harder to resist after Vancouver  resident Brace Culver offered  $1.1 million towards the purchasing price.  The money was left by Culver's brother Dan Culver who  died last year while descending  from the summit of K2 in Pakistan.  Known for his passion for  wilderness, Dan Culver stipulated in his will that part of his  estate be used to purchase a  piece of natural coastal property  for the purpose of preservation.  Another group calling themselves Friends of Jedediah have  organized a fund-raising campaign with the goal of raising  $250,000 to put towards the  purchasing price.  The group, based on Lasqueti Island, are hitting up companies, industries and individuals for donations ��� "anybody  we can think of to give us  money," spokesperson Doug  Hopwood said.  On the Sunshine Coast, over  $2,000 was collected last  Wednesday for the Jedediah  fund after two benefit performances of a slide show presented by Dan Culver's climbing  partner Jim Haberl.  see related story on page 15  -���^-     -*-"������   L--*    -*-���������-���   :���   -   -  *   "���  -������!��� tf^smsmH^^m^m loast News, December iy, rm  Lawrence Chambers  Ph: 1*6-9111  Cathy ��.

Environmentalist Ric Careless of Granthams  Landing was appointed to the board along with 14  other BC residents by Forest Renewal CEO Roger  Stanyer earlier in the month. Careless will represent the World Wildlife Federation.  In an interview, Careless said he was nominated  to the Forest Renewal board because of his  involvement in finding solutions to the growing  controversy in the province of "jobs versus the  environment."  Thai's an argument he believes is "off base."  Resource-based employment and the environment can co-exist if "better care" is taken in the  forests now.  "We have the opportunity to have the best of all  worlds," Careless said.  In June, 1994, among several other awards  given him earlier in the year, Careless became the  first environmentalist lo be chosen for B.C.'s highest honour, the Order of British Columbia.  Careless will share responsibility on the Forest  Renewal BC board alongside representatives from  the forest industry, pulp mill industry, Native interests, IWA-Canada and the Westcoasl Environmental Law Association.  Also on the board are government ministers  from the Ministry of Forests, Environment and  Transportation and Highways.  According to a press release from the Forest  Renewal office, board members are responsible for  managing the Forest Renewal Plan which will  invest approximately $400 million per year into  the forest sector.  Board members were appointed through an  Order in Council to two-year terms.  Ric Careless  Tatshenshini decision applauded on Coast  by Darah Hansen  The recognition of BC's million-hectare Tatshenshini-Alsek  Wilderness Park as a World  Heritage Site is a great honour  for both the environment and  Canada.  That's what environmentalists and government officials  alike are saying in reference to  the recenl decision by the United Nations Educational, Scien-  tific and Cultural Organization  (UNESCO) to grant Ihe Tatshenshini international status.  "This is a real honour...It  means the Tat[shenshini] is right  up at the very top of special  places in the world," Ric Careless said in an interview Friday,  Dec. 16.  Careless, a Sunshine Coast  resident, led the 1993 campaign  to designate the Tatshenshini-  Alsek a wilderness park in  British Columbia.  According to Bruce Amos,  an official with Parks Canada,  the designation of the Tatshenshini as a World Heritage Site  means the international community recognizes the "outstanding  universal values" of Ihe area.  Amos said the park was  granted the status after passing a  number of criteria including  providing an "outstanding  example" of the earth's evolutionary history; containing  "superlative" natural beauty;  and providing an important  habitat for threatened species ���  both animal and plant.  The Tatshenshini is home to  a high number of grizzly and  glacier bears, he said.  Amos said the designation  under UNESCO does nol represent additional legal protection  of Ihe area. Environmental protection of the Tatshenshini is  enforced solely through Ihe BC  Parks Act.  The designation means the  Tatshenshini-Alsek, together  with adjacent parks in Alaska  and the Yukon, forms Ihe largest  international World Heritage  Site in the world, approximately  8.5 million hectares.

The Ministry of Forests is taking stock of areas  on the Sunshine Coast with recreational, cultural  and heritage values.  Local consultant Barry Janyk has been hired by  the ministry to complete the inventory of features  in the Sechelt supply block by the end of March.  Rob Rebantad, recreation officer for the ministry in Powell River, says the idea behind the  inventory is to make the Forest Service aware of  special recreational features before logging or  road-building plans are approved.  I "We don't want to find a cave after we've  logged an area," be said. "If the feature has too  high a significance, it may preclude development."  ' To do the inventory, the consultant will be  meeting with all interested local groups and individuals. Several public meetings will also be held.  Rebantad said once features are identified, the  consultant and the ministry will rank them on how  significant they are locally, provincially and  nationally and will make recommendations on how  they should be managed.  All information will be put on to maps which  can be overlaid on plans submitted to the ministry  by logging companies. The information will also  be available to the public.  Rebantad said the Forest Service is especially  keen to record areas of cultural significance to  First Nations people.  The area included in the Sechelt supply block  inventory extends from Howe Sound to Jervis  Inlet, and includes many of the islands such as  Anvil, Bowyer, Gambier, Hardy, Keats, Lasqueti,  . Nelson, Thormanby and Ihe Trail Islands. >        The last major inventory for the Sunshine Cbast  was done by the Foresl Service in 1986.

A Member ol Uir CIBC Group of Companies  Vandalism charges are pending against two 15-year-old boys  from Pender Harbour after  someone took a slightly unusual  joyride recently on golf carts  belonging to Ihe Pender Harbour  Golf Course.  Police said during the night  between Dec. 13 and 14, a  garage and several sheds housing the carts at the golf course  were broken inlo, and the golf  carts taken out and driven on the  course.  Altogether, aboul 10 carls  were driven. Two of Ihe carts  ended up in a pond. Damage lo  the others ranged from flat tires  to having their windshields  kicked out. One cart was found  in bushes behind Pender Harbour high school with ils roof  torn off. Total damage is estimated at aboul $6,000.  Luckily for the golf course,  frozen conditions of the turf prevented any major damage to the  green itself.  Based on evidence at the  scene, two youths were taken in  custody and later released by  Sechelt RCMP.

Coast News, December 19,1994  news  Members ofthe  Community  Health  Initiatives  Health Council  applaud the  provincial  designation of  three  community  health boards  ��� Coast  Garibaldi,  Powell River,  and Squamish  ��� Friday at  the Gibsons  Yacht Club.  Joel Johnstone  pholo  Health council budget set at $20 million  from page 1  The new health council is expected to  eventually function in much the same way  school boards now do in governing education  for local areas, and will likely control a budget of roughly $20 million.  On Friday, Shreck acknowledged Ihe new  system has been subject to some criticism.  But he dismissed fears that local volunteers  will be pushed out under New Directions or  that the councils ��� which are currently  appointed ��� will become a political vehicle  for government.  Sunshine Coast MLA Gordon Wilson,  who was not present at the ceremony, said  earlier this week he still has to be convinced  the health councils are a good idea.  "My concerns are that we're going to  establish a middle level of bureaucracy that's  going to eat up a lot of money," he commented.  But local politicians at the ceremony  appeared optimistic about the task ahead of  the new council.  Cardinal) said one of the first jobs in the  New Year'will be for the regional health  board to establish an overall plan for the area  and to figure out how funding will be divided  among the local health councils.  Special loan may improve St. Mary's efficiency  by Jane Seyd  While St. Mary's Hospital  still faces a deficit for the current fiscal year, a special loan  it's receiving from the province  could lead to lower expenses in  the future.  This week, the Ministry of  Health announced the Sunshine  Coast hospital will get $125,000  in the form of an interest-free  loan from a "hospital innovation" program which will provide money for two projects.  Just over $70,000 will be  used to buy an oxygen production system for St. Mary's,  which means the hospital won't  hive to ship in bottled oxygen  from the Lower Mainland.  Currently the hospital is  required to pay a rental fee for  each day the oxygen containers  remain on the Coast.  "There's been a heck of an  expense over the years having  these bottles around," says Ted  Wright, administrator of St.  Mary's.  The new production unit will  allow the hospital lo run air  through a special filter system  There isn't going to  be enough there to  avoid running some  kind of deficit'  -Ted Wright  which which eventually produce  a 90 per cent oxygen concentration.  The second project, which St.  Mary's will get $55,000  towards, will allow the hospital  to install new energy-efficient  lighting, to cut down on overhead costs.  Both loans from the government must be paid back by the  hospital. St. Mary's will have  two years to pay back Ihe  $70,000 and three years to pay  off the $55,000 amount.  The idea behind the program  is the loans go to projects which  will actually save the hospital  money in operational costs over  the long run.  One project which hasn't  been approved for funding is a  $100,000 upgrade to the hospital's computer system. "We're  going to have to do that ourselves," says Wright.  Also, in terms of this year's  .funding, "there isn't going to be  'enough there to avoid running  some kind of deficit," he says.  In August, St. Mary's closed  five beds as a cost-cutting measure.  Since then, patients have  sometimes had to sleep in beds  out in Ihe hall.  Wright said that continues to  be a problem in some weeks,  but added, "It's manageable. I  haven't been told we've reached  a dangerous level."  Local doctors have also  voiced concern that some people  who should be admitted to hospital aren't being brought in  because there's no more room.  Home support issue smoldering, talks to begin  Following the collapse of  mediated talks last week with  the province, the BC Government and Service Employees'  Union has served strike notice  on eight additional home support agencies across the  province.  That's according to a press  release issued by the union on  Monday, Dec. 12.  The 60 home support services on the Sunshine Coast  have not yet been affected by  Ihe strike action, the release  However, the strike is affecting more than 1,500 workers  from several agencies around  the province. Aboul 350 workers  al four agencies ��� Fernwood,  Fairfield, and James Bay on  Vancouver Island and Surrey ���  are currently on strike.  And more than 1,300 more  workers from Vancouver, to  Howe Sound to Dawson Creek  are poised to join them on Ihe  picket line just before Christmas, the press release states.  The release also states the  union has made an application to  be heard before the Labour  Relations Board (LRB) lhal  could "open the way to picketing of provincial government  offices." The talks with the LRB  were set to begin Wednesday,  Dec. 14.  According to the press  release, the union will be asking  the agency for several concessions including revising and  lowering the essential service  levels to increase pressure on  their employers; declaring some  of the employers guilty of unfair  labour practices and intimidation  by threatening layoffs, dismissals and closures if Ihe workers strike or continue to strike;  and finding some agencies in  violation of the Labour Code by  advertising for and hiring people  to work during the strike.  Home support workers in BC  provide in-home care for the  infirm and mentally disabled  residents of a community. The  workers are employed by 15  agencies province-wide which  are funded by the provincial  government.  The union claims people who  do similar work in provincial  institutions, long term care facilities and extended care homes  enjoy significantly higher  wages, benefits and working  conditions.  Workers have been without a  contract since March 31,1992.

It's a time when we're supposed to be spending money on  our loved ones...to show them just how much we love them.  But too often these are ideals that just can not be met.  Too often, the images and messages associated with the  "traditional" Christmas can lead to overwhelming feelings  of stress and depression for the people who are alone, whose  loved ones are far away, or passed away...or for the people  who just can't afford to celebrate in this manner.  Earlier this week, the Coast News received a phone call  from a local woman whose anxiety around the pressures of  the season was palpable through the phone line. She'd spent  all the money she had on modest gifts for her children then  didn't have enough left to buy anything for her husband.  She was genuinely upset. By phoning the paper she  hoped in some way to relieve some of her stress.  We wish we could have been of more help to her.  What we can do is offer a public voice to urge people to  slow down a little this Christmastime. Think about what the  season really means to you and your family...whether it's a  spiritual time or simply a time to relax, reflect on the year  past and plan for the future.  If you are feeling stressed, unhappy or overwhelmed by  the season, please remember you're not alone. There are  people out there who can help.  On the Sunshine Coast, help can be reached through the  Women's Transition House at 885-2944, the Port Mellon  Men's Transition House at 884-0099, Community Services  at 885-S881 and through St Mary's Hospital, or the Sechelt  and Gibsons RCMP.  Let's try and keep the season in perspective.  Jedediah Island...  preserving a piece  of the Coast  The was an excellent turnout for the K2 slide show at the  Raven's Cry Theatre last week which shows the community  is willing to support the concept of buying Jedediah Island  as a provincial park.  At the same time, it seems the province may soon be persuaded to come up with a little money itself (in response to  public pressure) and an offer of an undisclosed amount has  been made for the island's purchase.  Those who have not contributed in some way to the purchase of Jedediah may be asking "Why do we need another  green park? The Coast is already as spectacular as a park  could be."  The answer is easy and it has to do with preserving a little of the beauty we expect from our area. Quite simply, a  provincial nature park will be protected from the development which will undoubtedly change the face of the Coast  over the next SO years.  All we are doing by preserving Jedediah is preserving a  little piece of what the Coast is now. So keep up the government pressure, contribute where you can, and make plans to  see Jedediah Island when the deal goes through. It'll be  there for us all.  HW 6AU W��"  l*T tfftTltfCr OF ~?He 51/WsW/N/g" COAST H��WK4Me)L...  Mtsrs  Judgement passed  The school board decision lo  remove New American and  Canadian Poetry from general  circulation at Chatelech Secondary is intolerable and should  be reversed immediately. The  issue is not the content nor the  quality of work in the anthology.  Writing offensive in some way to  someone and good and bad writing, can be found everywhere.  The issue is not the age nor the  emotional and social maturity of  potential readers. Immaturity is  not confined to Grade 8 and 9  students at Chatelech, nor is it a  characteristic of every one of  them. The issue is simply and  emphatically freedom of speech.  The only appropriate response  of educators in a democracy to  dissent or disagreement about  written material is to provide a  forum for balanced and fair  minded discussion of that material. Everyone, but especially those  offended by and those to be protected from the work in question,  should be invited and encouraged  to participate.  In 25 years as a poet and  teacher I have yet to come across  an instance of a poem openly and  freely discussed doing anyone  any harm. I have hundreds of  examples of such discussion  doing good, personal and social.  Frequently increased understanding, tolerance, capacity for judgement, capacity for humour, a  finer emotional and psychological equilibrium (ie. emotional  and social maturity) is evident in  participants. There is ample evidence that secrecy, self-righteous  do-goodism, attempts at control  and manipulation of opinion, are  harmful. Il's not Mein Kampf  under the terrorist's mattress that  is the cause of his dangerous  obsession but his failure to see  the book and its opinions in the  light of day, in the context of  other books, other ideas, in a  public forum where all writing is  welcomed as an opportunity to  further community, not suspected  as dangerous and evil.  More than anything else  schools teach values. Limiting  access to books sends all the  wrong messages to students: that  one cannot determine for oneself  what one should read, that one  cannot determine for oneself  what one should read and think;  that ideas and thinking might be  inherently dangerous; that  "offensive" things should be hidden away rather than examined  and challenged publicly; that  books should be judged not in  their entirety but on any isolated  instance of offense that might be  discovered within them; that values are fixed forces to be  imposed upon oneself and others.  In such a climate, bring on some  anti-establishment poetry.  I don't know Moira Zealand.  Her complaint is no doubt well-  intentioned. She is not qualified  (no-one is) to determine what citizens in a democracy should or  should not read. Media Review  Committee Chair Keith Brind  should worry less about whether  he's playing god and more about  doing his job as a librarian,  whose first responsibility is to  facilitate and encourage reading.  Such a committee should not  exist except to enhance discussion of controversial ideas and  opinions.  It's managed this in spite of  itself. Until the book goes back  on the shelves at Chatelech we  will be able to boast on the Coast  that we have no real need of writers, publishers, editors, teachers  and librarians in our community.  We have no need of the literary  and democratic values that have  evolved within our culture for  centuries. We have no need to  further that evolution. We have  Moira Zealand and the Media  Review Committee, operating on  the principles of "it could be  offensive..." to determine our  future.  JOHN PASS  Madeira Park  Paucity appalling  I am appalled by the paucity  of letters to the editor regarding  the cloture of the Coast News.  Are we really so apathetic or are  the letters not all being printed?  I would hope the latter. I  would like to join with the ones  who have written to say thai I am  very sorry to see the demise of  the Coast News. Is it the only  weekly on the Coast which it  concerned with communication  and that, to me, it what newspapers are all about.  As far as the new Lightning', I  think we should all install lightning rods to ward off this disaster. I hope the merchants who  withdrew advertising from the  Coast News, due to criticism of  their storefronts, ate happy now.  We are all going to suffer  because of their parochialism.  UZCAHILL  Getting lost or simply stuck in the snow, ode to Randy  Had a humble experience a few weeks ago  when I backed my car into a ditch up a snowy logging road. My friend and I uttered the usual four-  letter words and proceeded to strategize about how  to get the car back on a horizontal plane.  "This tiny thing," I said, banging the roof of the  little hatchback. "Shouldn't be too difficult..."  She gave a healthy push and I revved like I  meant business, rocking the car forward and back,  deeper and deeper into the ditch.  We'd have gotten it out, no problem...if only the  summer radials hadn't been spinning like that.  One of us had the bright idea to pull out some of  my dirty laundry (which happened to be molding  in the hatchback) and stuff it under the tires for  extra traction.  Bad luck. My velcro sheets must have been at  the cleaners.  At we watched my white cotton sheets rip to  shreds beneath my otherwise wimpy summer tires,  our mighty enthusiasm did wane a little. After all,  it wat Friday night. Who wanted to be stuck on the  top of a mountain inside a little car full o'dirty  laundry?  I turned off the ignition, for some reason or  another, and we attempted to come up with another  plan.  kettle's on  Time for a rescue. The vote was unanimous.  Of course it was past dinner time so we pulled  out a few appetizers from my pack ��� a little  smoked salmon and some red wine ��� and simply  waited for a stream of traffic that was bound to  appear...  It was about that time we started swapping stories of being lost in the snow.  When I was 11,1 followed my big sister over  Ihe crest of a mountain.  With downhill skit and boots strapped to our  feet, we trudged away from the busy tki area in  search of a neat trail through the trees.  I remember feeling a sense of exhiliration with  this independence. It was my first attempt at  Sandra Smith  wilderness stupidity. We trudged and we trudged  through knee deep powder and I began to ask my  sister annoying questions, like did she know where  we were going? It soon became obvious we no  longer knew where we had come from, let alone  where we were going.  It started to get dark and, after a couple of  hours, I think I began to cry. (Hey, I was 11!) I  only cried for a minute, mind you. It's a strange  thing that happens to a person when they suspect  they could be up against the mighty wall of death.  They become stronger in their denial, thinking  about anything and everything except what seems  to be inevitable.  My friend told me about the time she went back  country skiing in Banff ��� alone at the top of a  peak. Everybody told her the wat crazy.  Wouldn't ya know it but, at soon as she got to  the top, she found herself in a white-out, unable to  tee the hand in front of her face, or the direction of  the village the desperately wanted to get back to.  She would have kicked herself hard, had the been  able to, but of course, she had a pair of long skit  strapped to her feet. Somehow, in a frantic search  for anything vitible, the discovered a stream and  followed il home.  Unfortunately, we didn't get the chance to carry  on with our stories and scare ourselves silly for,  just then, our saviour rolled by in his red four-by-  four truck, sort of like the Cadillac of sleighs.  Randy, who wouldn't give ut hit last name,  pulled out four different kinds of rope, choosing  the best one to do the job, and had ut back on the  road before we could tay "wow-what-a-lucky-  thing-for-us-you-came-along-when-you-did."  Then he revved up his truck and down the logging road he went.  Merry Christmas, Randy! we yelled, and  haven't forgotten him since.  If it wasn't for Randy, the smoked salmon and  the red wine, I suspect we could have added a new  adventure to our list.

If I understood this article  properly Jhat a complaint by a  pirentfcliiised Ihe school board to  resfcct use of a book of poetry  then perhaps fiction has become  reality. Shades of Orwell's 19H4.  1 think we're in trouble if one  parent has Ihis kind of power. I  could understand (albeit only  slightly more) if there had been  numerous complaints from other  parents thai Ihe school board may  have taken this matter under consideration. If parents are so worried about what, if any, influence  this type of literature is going to  have on their children maybe  Ihey need to concern themselves  more with raising their children  in a healthy way so the children  are able to decide for themselves  what is right or wrong, what is  good or bad, what is fact or fiction or what is inoffensive or  offensive.  In my opinion this is just  another sign of our society trying  to protect ourselves from ourselves. Where and when does it  end?  CAROL RICHARDSON  Gibsons  Barney's plight.,  been there  RE: Your article on Barney  Johnson's plight.  Two years ago while residing  on Ihe North Shore and having  Iwo sons employed by Pacific  Press, we went through a similar  situation. When Pacific Press  decided to publish and deliver by  8 am, the carriers were the last lo  be informed. I believe that the  carriers are every bit as important  to the paper as the publishers.  My younger son was told of  the change by one of his customers. Most of his cuslomers  did not prefer an early morning  delivery, bill carriers who did not  wish to deliver at 6 am were  'fired' for lack of a better word.  ..riCte attn leally. need to be like  tb.tfitwi; loity erjflan we keep, the  kidsand adults, in need of the  employment, providing a service  which often comes with a smile  and a chat.  I urge all cuslomers of lhe Sun  and Province newspapers to  stand behind their carriers and  keep this little piece of the Sunshine Coast intact.  HELEN MCMULLEN  Davis Bay  Developing an  apology  Open letter to Stan Anderson  RE: Your request for a public  apology from me in response to  my letter "Please get il over  with", in which I lamented the  noise and havoc resulting from  tlie new housing development.  In your immediate phone call  to me, you explained that you  had no hand in the development  of that particular parcel and in  fact were blasting/developing in a  different location. I apologize for  causing any confusion to your  friends and clients.  You then also spent some time  explaining why so much work  has lo be done in developing  these parcels and Ihe many codes  and restrictions that must be  adhered to, and I found this quite  interesting. I wonder if a newspaper might spend some time  explaining these policies, where  Ihey are formulated and by  whom. This way, when we lie  awake at night wondering  whether there isn't a gentler way  for humans to live on this planet,  we will have a more appropriate  focus for our questions and angst.  Why did I not write you  directly? This too was my mistake. Letters seem to disappear  on this Coast and I have certainly  not received responses concerning other issues I have tried to  follow up while living here.  Council does not have a policy of  reading letters from the public at  their meetings and phoning different departments with questions  generally leads to the "phone  chain shuffle."  It's a crazy little world we live  in, where miles of earth are dug  up for sewer pipes to carry our  waste away, yet I can't find anyone who is permitted a composting toilet - where within hearing  range of blasting and drilling,  people are not allowed to own a  chicken. Too noisy, Too dirty.  I've been told that council is  planning Sechelt after the "Surrey model", and I'm worried for  this lovely little piece of the  world.  A friend has suggested that  our dialogue here may be an  opportunity for fostering understanding, rather lhan "factioning  off," so that at some point alternatives can be studied together.  Perhaps this is a touch of brilliance that should be investigated, rather than leaving certain of  us to "snap" in the night and  write emotional letters. Or maybe  in the end you're right, Mr.  Anderson, and as you said on the  phone, someone "should apply  for a gran) to give therapy" to  those of us having trouble with  these changes.  ROBIN WHEELER  I   Sechelt  ���  Pier concerns  I am concerned that the  Sechelt Economic Development  Committee is spending $14,000  on a sludy for a pier in Trail Bay  which will not provide costs,  actual benefits, impaci on the  environment, etc. This is the third  time within the last eight years  that a study for a pier has been  undertaken. Previous studies  noted cots for pier facilities  between $1 and $2 million.  At the workshop meeting held  on Saturday, Dec. 10 I was chosen spokesperson for one of the  discussion groups. Items of concern which were reviewed:  A. Costs: What will be the  economic benefits? What are the  estimated costs for construclion,  operation and maintenance?  What will be the source of funds  for construction, operation and  maintenance?

Mr. Bill Barlee, BC's Minister  of Small Business, Tourism and  Culture advised on Sept. 7,1994:  "A portion of the funds required  for this study will be provided by  the Ministry of Small Business,  Tourism and Culture with any  further development of the proposed pier being the responsibility of the residents of the Sechelt  District." As for other development programs I consider it  important for District of Sechelt  council to prepare a summary for  the taxpayers. Some of the programs which could be on the list:  ��� District of Sechelt five year  capital program (library, RCMP  headquarters, municipal hall,  expansion to the existing ice  arena, etc..  ��� District of Sechelt 1995  operating budget.  ��� Sunshine Coast Regional  District domestic water quality  improvements.  ��� Sanitary Sewer Service  extensions to Davis Bay, Wilson  Creek and Tuwanek as well as  expansion of STP.  ���Construction of collector  roads as per Associated Eng.  1993 report. Storm sewer  drainage improvements as per  Dayton & Knight report 1993.  Satellite fire hall in West Sechelt.  Construction of schools, park  acquisition and beach beautification and others.  B. Environment: The natural  beauty of Trail Bay is its greatest  asset now and in the future. If a  pier is built it will destroy the  aesthetic quality of the great  sweep of the beach. Once a pier  is in place there would be pressure to build a marina which  would add to the visual and environmental degradation.  Pollution of Trail Bay, Dayton  & Knight Liquid Waste Management Study of 1990 indicated a  poor circulation of ocean currents  in Trail Bay.  C. Development of existing  pier facilities: Consideration  should be given to improve existing pier facilities at Porpoise Bay  and Davis Bay. Pier improvements at Davis Bay would result  in tourists using the proposed  walkway along the beach to  Seima Park Road and then to  Sechelt Village.  Also, pier improvements at  Davis Bay would benefit the proposed Hotel Resort behind the  former Casa Martinez Restaurant.  D. Parking facilities: Where  will parking facilities be provided? Sechelt Economic Development Committee should devote  time and money to provide new  parking facilities for tourists and  shoppers visiting the Village of  Sechelt.  A.H. WHISTLER  Sechelt  The most  important  gift of  Christmas...  did not  arrive by  reindeer.  Keep Christ  in Christmas.  Knights of Columbus  Another recycler  Further to your Dec. 12 article  on recycling: The company I  work for is also doing ils part to  reduce the burden on the local  landfill site. In May Sunshine  Coast Disposal bought a baler  and hired a worker full time to  bale cardboard.  Since then we have sent over  130 ions of cardboard, five and  one half Ions of newspaper and  three tons of other paper products  to Vancouver.  As we are a private company  and ineligible for taxpayer  money, we must charge our customers to pick up their cardboard  lo help cover costs.  Our customers, responsible  citizens themselves, have been  very supportive of our efforts to  find new ways lo serve the Sunshine Coast.  To them, to you, and to all  your readers, a very Merry  Christmas and a prosperous New  Year.  LOIS GORY  Seclielt  Thanks for the help  On Dec. 6 I was driving up  Hall Road to do some work. I hit  a patch of ice and spun and rolled  my van. I want to thank Joanne  of Day Road for helping me get  out of the van.

To the Sunshine Coast  Regional District and all the  nameless and faceless people  who yayed the down zoning of  our five acres of commercial  property fronting on Highway  101 (Peninsula Hotel):  When you were all in such  final agreement that our pioperty  should be down zoned were you  also in agreement that you would  as cheerfully donate approximately 70 per cent of your own  family assets to such a cause? Do  you, the SCRD know that you  have devastated our family  assets? We sold our assets in  Winnipeg, Manitoba and invested in BC because we are now at  an age when we can no longer  stand the cold and shovel snow  for six months of the year.  We are both children of the  Depression era. Hard work, no  welfare, no UIC, just work,  sometimes 14 to 16 hours a day  .saved our money so we could  retire in our old age.  Well, with the stroke of a pen  you managed to devastate our  assets by approximately 70 per  cent. How would you feel about  il if it happened to you? Mr.  McGillivray said "It's what the  people want." The people. Who  are these people who would steal  assets of Iheir neighbours without .i thought of how they would  feel if it was their own assets.  We are now too old to fight back,  but remember people, it can also  happen to you some day. We saw  it happen in Hitler's Reich and  we fought it in our young age.  Shades of black boots coming in  the night. Hitler's people wanted  it, so they took from the old, the  disabled, Ihe Jews and any non-  Aryans who had assets and gave  to the people because they wanted what they could not buy.  Our place was up for sale. If  the people wanted it they could  have bought it. Mr. McGillivray  looked at the legal aspect and I  admit it is legal. Would you now  all look at the moral aspect and  while we're at it, a few more  words to look up in the dictionary. Moral, decent, conscience,  unscrupulous and please answer  my one question in the paper so  readers can see you all as you  are. How much did each of you  people and the SCRD lose to the  rezoning, or was it just our family who suffers devastation? For  an old veteran, ex-POW, to lose  all his life's savings is demoralizing. What a shame for honest,  decent and hard working people  to put up with such unthinking,  unfeeling elected officials who  are being paid with our tax dollars.

IRWIN WALL  ANNE HYWORON  Roberts Creek  Lighting the way  On Friday Dec. 2 the Christmas lights at Rockwood Centre  were turned on and the 1994  Christmas season officially  began on the Sunshine Coast.  The flicking of the switch and  the wonderful evening that followed was made possible  because of Ihe generous gift of  time and resources by a large  number of people.  We would like to show our  appreciation for the following  individuals and businesses whose  contributions made this year's  Light the Lights a resounding  success.

Secretary Graham Wray was returned  by acclamation, as was treasurer  Margaret Dove. Executive member are Linda and Jacob  Klausen, Ron Roy, Maureen  Wilson and Jim Peers.  The Ladies Auxiliary to  Branch 109 have elected officers  for 1995 with the following  slate: president, Ethel Harding;  vice-president, Freda Scott; treasurer Eleanor Dyck; and secretary, Vera Askew. Executive  members are Vi Wilson and Liz  Batchelor.  Patagonia  Norman Wells phoned from  Ihis southern region last week.  He phoned collect because his  grant from Ottawa has been  back a little since it was granted  to him, all in response to  protests from the Territories.  "The big treat here on the  pampas at this festive time is a  dish of lamb fries. It is spring in  this sheep ranching region, you  know," Norman said.  "You asked about the young  harmony hall  people here," he said, "Ihey  cause no trouble unless they  start loitering around the sheep  pens, shoving and giggling.  Then each individual is sent out  on the pampas with a flock of  sheep and ordered to stay out on  the grazing ground until the  flock has at least increased by  half."  "Policemen? Hardly need  them down here. Now and again  one rides out from the city  apparently on patrol. But he  stays in his tent doing up paper  work he's brought from the cily.  His horse stands around eating  government hay all day."  "Law and order? Well, Ihe  travelling magistrates don't use  that weak-kneed word 'probation'. They have found Ihe  English word 'tut' has to the  Spanish ear a sound of extreme  disapproval. The culprit is really  devastated when a magistrate  intones 'tut, tut,' on finding him  guilty of a savage assault, for  example. The culprit goes out of  court his head hanging in shame.  Remorse dogs his every step."  By the way, Norman, who is  touring really hard to get the full  worth of his government grant,  tells me he has no relations on  the Sunshine Coast. He is the  only Wells in the Territories,  too.  Gibsons Elementary School students play out their Christmas  concert Thursday evening. Joel Johnstone photo  by George Cooper  Although many of our activities close  down over the holiday season, take note the  New Year's Eve dance and supper is definitely on. Tickets are $10 per person.,  The birthday tea is today, Dec. 19.  Next meeting  The next meeting of the Branch No. 38  OAPA is Jan. 9, the second Monday of the  month - but only for January.  Christmas dinner  The kitchen committee did all Ihe cater  ing for the dinner this year with the assistance of other willing volunteers.  The sumptuous feast consisted of turkey,  ham, delectable stuffing and four vegetables  including (memories of WWII Britain) brus-  sels sprouts.

On Saturday, Dec. 10  approximately 75 Beavers, leaders and parents from as far as  Pender Harbour enjoyed an  afternoon of crafts, games and a  nature walk to Ihe North Pole.  Santa magically appeared and  spent his time visiting with  everyone.  Everyone then pul together  four mini puppet shows and certainly every Beaver had their  turn at the microphone. The  afternoon ended with Christmas  carols and hot dogs.  j The 6th Roberts Creek Scout  Oroup held their Christmas  party. They enjoyed an exciting  puppet show with Bella Burnett  and Marilyn James. The families also enjoyed fellowship,  crafts and games.  'Finally, the elementary  school held two nights with  iheir 1994 Christmas presentation, The Twelve Days of Christmas. A bus schedule was set up  to ensure that everyone arrived  safely. Reporis are that the  event was well worth seeing.  Library news  The library did ils Christmas  shopping in November when it  added 45 new books to its  Trail Bay  society  holds AGM  The Trail Bay Protection  Sociely will be holding its  annual general meeting this  Sunday, Dec. 18, al 1 pm in the  Community Services building  at the north end of Inlet  Avenue. The Society's mandate  islo promote conservation of  thl natural habitat of Trail Bay,  engaging in any activity lo further this purpose.  Following an election of  directors, there will be discussion of the future of Trail Bay  an| Sechelt's Georgia Strait  foreshore and the possibility of  enlarging the mandate to  include greenspace preservation  concerns throughout the Sunshine Coast. Attend the meeting  or phone 885-2339 to become  '"tBffSw'V *    <?  shelves.  Many of these are paperbacks, but none the worse for  lhat, as the many who enjoy  reading in bed would agree.  Among the 14 new mysteries is  Canadian best seller Essondale  by Davis Laing Dawson, and a  new Joanne Kilboun mystery A  Colder Kind of Death by Gail  Bowen, another Canadian.  Among the Best of British we  recommend The Ice House by  Minette Walters, a must for aficionados.  General Action gives the latest by that amazing octogenarian Robertson Davies titled The  Cunning Man. A new Irish  author to our shelves whom  many will enjoy is Alice Taylor,  who writes in a style similar to  Beckwith and Forrester. We  have purchased three of her  books.  The non-fiction has a somewhat martial aspect this month.  John Keegan's History of Warfare has become a modern classic and The Good War by Studs  Terkel is first class oral history.  To these we can add Kiel: a Life  of Revolution by Maggie Sig-  gins, essential reading for all  Canadian history buffs.  As usual we have tried to  find something for sll tastes.  Enjoy your Christmas reading  and your Christmas.  We look forward to seeing  old friends and new ones in the  New Year. If you are starting to  make your resolutions list, we  urge you to make one of them  "get those library books back on  time."  Christmas in lights  As you drive along the highway you probably have seen a  blaze of light as you near Older-  shaw Road (2225 Oldershaw).  This Christmas light display  started by Mary and Albert  Weal began approximately 20  years ago.  Mary says they were already  putting up lights on their trees  and they decided to share them  with the community.  The Roberts Creek volunteer  fire department see to all the  high and heavy work but Mary  still helps with strings of lights  as she sits and watches the creation take shape each year.  The display is open each  night from 6:30 to 10 until Jan.  1. Drop by and put a special  light to your Christmas this  year.

Rotary  aids  dyslexic  youth  by Sandra Smith  Christmas came early for a  13-year-old Gibsons boy suffering from severe dyslexia and  other cognitive problems.  Jayeson Williamson, who  was barred from local schools  last year for medical reasons,  will gel a full year of education  afler all, thanks lo a healthy  donation from the Sechelt  Rotary Club.  The Club has sent a cheque  for $5,500 directly to the Fraser  Academy in Vancouver, securing his enrolment for the rest of  the school year.  Mother Lara Williamson was  ecstatic wilh the news. The payment came one day before her  last'payment was due.  The single mother stopped  working last year to teach her  son full-time. Unable to afford  the tuition fees for the academy,  she took her case to various government departments but was  repeatedly turned down.  However, family friends on  the Sunshine Coasl helped out  with donations and Jayeson got  a lale start al ihe academy this  fall. In the pasl iwo months, he  has progressed from a Grade 1  reading level lo a Grade4 or five  level, Williamson said.  Williamson took her case lo  the club last August. The club  was able to help out after ils TV  auction this November raised  close to $30,000, said member  Jim Bain, director of community  services.  ^Special 3j  Christmas  dinner  $g95  $kc 23 ��24th only  Grilletl Turkey Met w/Graxy  Green \xw, ctresning,  cranberry muet  ,/lntl  I.

My granddaugh  ter calls it 'dancing rainbows'.  How about a package of blank  video tapes to capture those  memorable old movies on? Or a  game that Ihe entire family can  take part in? There are some  super ones on the market now.  If you have a budding writer,  painter, skelcher or calligrapher  in your family, there is a vast  array of materials available that  you can buy to start them off.

And for everyone  else, it offered a dramatic, touching  human story, backed  by spectacular photos  of Pakistan's rich  culture   and   K2's         fierce beauty.  Narrated by  climber Jim Haberl, the story  told of his trek to Pakistan with  a North American climbing  team in 1993, their ascent of K2,  and the tragic death of Haberl's  climbing partner, Dan Culver,  on their descent.  Haberl told the story wilh a  kind of genuine humility and  emotion that easily made him  popular with his audience. And  what his voice, at times, lacked  in dramatic emphasis, his photos  made up for with their stunning  clarity and ability to express the  character of the experience on  film.  In an interview prior to last  week's show, Haberl called the  story "inspiring...a celebration  'It offered  a dramatic,  touching  human story'  beyond the drama of Dan's  death."  And from Ihe standing ova-  lion Haberl received following  his show as well comments from  the audience in Ihe lobby, his  comments rang true.  One man said he was riveted  by the performance and, though  Ihe show started late  and lasted two full        hours, found himself  drawn into the story  without growing  tired.  Another said he  fell like he was  watching a movie  where, even though  he already knew lhe  ending, he thought it        might be different  this one time.  Non-climbers did  express some confusion over  various technical aspects of the  K2 climb that weren't clearly  explained during the show  including why the climbers were  climbing without ropes and  without oxygen.  Nor was it clear, one woman  commented, what Haberl gained  from the whole experience.  Organizers of K2: Dreams  and Reality ate certainly thrilled  with the show's success.  Packing the theatre for both a  matinee and evening performance on Wednesday, Dec. 14,  the slide show earned in excess  of $2,000 to be used towards the  purchase of Jedediah Island as a  provincial nature park.

K2: Dreams and Reality photo  RECYCLE  THIS  PAPER!  by Jane Seyd  It may be a scaled-down version of last year's Festival of the  Written Arts in Sechelt, bul the  board of directors for the event  say the show will go on next  summer, despite financial troubles.  "We can guarantee there will  b#a Clival," says Rick CfttiriBy,"  chair of the festival board of  directors. "We've had a chance  to say no and let it die, and it's  not going to happen."  This year, for the first time,  directors are planning the 13th  annual writing festival without  the event's founder and longtime producer Betty Keller, who  chose not to renew her producer's contract and resigned from  her position as chair of the board  in October, citing health reasons.  Probably the biggest hurdle  an the arts beat  facing the board, according to  Cooney, is an accumulated debt  of over $100,000, which has  recently prompted speculation  over whether the festival can  afford to continue.  Preliminary figures from 1994  show the event continued to lose  money last year, with costs outstripping inco��ie"by*IBSiit  $31,000.  Despite this sobering news,  Cooney and festival president  Wendy Hunt say Ihey believe the  event can be pulled back into the  black, without big sacrifices to  the qualily of lhe festival.  In fact, Hunt and Cooney say  if all goes according to recenl  plans, the festival should even  make money in 1995 and will  have paid off amounts owed in  the next three years.  Hunts says under Ihe board's  plan, the festival itself will not  undergo any dramatic changes,  although it may be scaled down  from the pasl year's line-up.  The board will, however, be  taking a much closer look at  advertising and production costs  leading up to the event, which  'Cooney says made up a large  Wtf *e expeniiS���:"*v,,'*T,  * Other plans Include looking  for more corporate donors, going  after more small grants which  may be available and trying to  get a casino night in Vancouver.  In terms of the actual festival  line-up, Hunt says the board has  already begun lo sent out invitations to authors and predicts  "we'll have no problem filling it  up with a good slate of writers."  The board also hopes to have  a new producer for the event  hired soon in the New Year.  ohoppinq the World in (cibsons Landing  280 Gower Point Rd. ��� 886-7455  (HKawisac  I  i  I  I  I  I  I  I  I  I  VANCOUVER ��� SECHELT PENINSULA  Uavt Ungdalt  &20am       2:30  8:30 4:30 pm  10:30 6:30  12:25pmM 8:20M  H ��� MMtl NVtrick BUS  OE BAY-LANGDALE  LMwHqmeshoeBay  7:30 in .   3:30     '  9:30 M      5:30 pm  11:30       7:25 M  1:15 pm    9:15  i cove -  LmwEkIiCow  6:40 am      *30pm  8:20 6:30  10:30 8:30  1225 pmM   10:20 M  5ALTEHY BAY  LaaveSaltaryBay  5:45am" 3:30pm  7:35  9:30 M  11:30  5:30 M  7:30  920  II  ���  EOTUMMNGSi Howe Sound: Oct 10,1994 and M��y 2,1995 ��� Law Honthoe Biy 11M (tn, LuveUngdile 10:10 pm.

HAPPY HOLIDAYS TO AU OUR PATRONS!  IMMH  ���*���������  ���"-- -  ��� news  Conwest defends proposed  Sechelt Inlet hydro projects  by Sandra Smith  A government request for  more hydro-electricity projects in  BC has raised questions about  the environmental impacts of the  plan and Ihe wisdom of producing electricity for export lo the  United States.  The Sunshine Coast could be  one future power source and is  under review for potential projects.  BC Hydro is seeking an extra  200 to 300 megawatt supply of  electricity to add to its current  installed capacity of 10,000 MW.  The public utilities company put  out a formal "request for proposals" (RFP) Dec. 8 and Independent Power Producers are hurrying to respond by March 15.  That includes Conwest Explorations, a Toronto-based company currently monitoring water  flows at eight sites in Salmon  Inlet, North of Sechelt.  Conwest recently gained  approval for its firsl hydro-electric project in BC, located on  Sechelt Creek. The $20 million  project is set lo come-on line  with BC Hydro in April 1996.  "We'll be looking at the feasibility of one or two more sites in  Salmon Inlet with respect to  responding to the RFP," said  West Coast Manager Ron Swanson.  Conwest executives have  repeatedly stated they want to do  a "good job" with their Sechell  Creek project in order to hold it  up as an environmentally-sensitive model. They have arranged  to build a salmon spawning  channel in Sechell Creek which  will be operated my the Sechelt  Indian Band.  But salmon advocate Fin  Anthony is concerned BC is setting the course for environmental  disaster by preparing to supply  the United States with electricity.  In an interview this fall, BC  Hydro's Manager of Non-utility  Generation John Elliot confirmed the province "is looking  at getting into the long-term  business of exporting power."  We'll be looking at  tbefeasibilty of one  or two more sites'  -Run Swanson  Anthony, who lives in Vancouver and is pasl president of  the Save the Salmon Society and  the Pacific Salmon Society, says  Americans are currently  "undamming their streams while  we dam ours... BC Hydro was  set up to serve the people of BC,  yet Washington and Oregon  have put a freeze on all new dam  construction as they look to find  other power sources," Anthony  said.  However, a government official in Washington's Department  of Ecology said there is not a  government freeze on dam construction but admitted fewer  dams are being built in that state.  "There is a lengthy application process and a variety of  environmental concerns are  taken into consideration. It just  may be that, in this economic  and environmental climate, it's  difficult (for companies) to reach  the standards," said Gale Blom-  strom, regional supervisor for the  department's waler resources  program. "We can sure look at  salmon slocks and report the  numbers have decreased in the  last 10 years.  "Twenty years ago, we hardly  had any environmental regulations and now we have lots of  them. That's certainly been a  factor," she said.  Blomstrom said it could also  be due to a decreasing demand  for electricity in the state.  Swanson said several small  and medium-sized dams in  Washington and Oregon are due  for relicensing in the next few  years. "Some, I'm sure will be  removed. .The generating equipment is old and Ihe cosl of operating these facilities is probably  higher lhan ihe potential benefit  for fishery returns. That's what  I'm surmising," he said.  Swanson emphasized thai  Conwest's hydro-electric projects don't involve dams but are  "run-of-the-river schemes."  "Our primary criteria for  selection of a site is that it is  steep, with canyons and through  areas where fish don't migrate."  Local MLA Gordon Wilson  said he's "personally satisfied"  with Conwest's Sechelt Creek  proposal but is concerned about  the proliferation of Independent  Power Producer projects "solely  for export."  "I don't think we should be in  the business of flooding up our  rivers for the purpose of selling  cheap power to the U.S. I think  that's just foolishness," Wilson  said in an interview this November.  "I think British Columbians  should get a break on their  rates."  Hatchery releases cutthroat trout  byMlkeO'KeelTe  For the first time in over three years, fisherman  will be able to catch and keep cutthroat trout raised  in the Chapman Creek hatchery.  The Sunshine Coast Salmonid Enhancement  Society, which operates the Wilson Creek hatchery, has raised and released about 25,000 of the  trout into Chapman Creek in the past ihree years,  according to society president Bill Chinnock.  He said the cutthroat population on the Coast  has been "hit very hard" by the sport fishing industry, mainly because the Coast is one of the few  places near Vancouver where the trout can still be  caught.  Also, he said logging has damaged some of the  trout's habitat, and lower water levels in creeks  have left fish vulnerable to predators.  To dale, sport fishermen have not been allowed  lo keep Ihe cutthroats raised at the hatchery. But  Chinnock said the current stock, to be released in  spring, will be fair game.  He said he and nine other volunteers have been  busy lately "clipping" fry at the hatchery. Workers  mark the fish by removing the adapase fin, a small,  boneless appendage near Ihe tail.  Fishermen must release all cutthroats unless  Ihey have been clipped, said Chinnock, adding this  is Ihe first year the hatchery has marked Ihe fish.  He said the fish are clipped at a young age to  ensure a greater survival rale.  Although it is a simple operation, Chinnock  said clipping is "a tedious and cold job."  District of _#>fcliflt  P.O.

(Telephone Number  886-2273)  Provincial program aids  workers* environment  byMlkeO'KeelTe  A local man is facing a  brighter future, thanks to a  provincial program that helps  young people acquire job skills  while enhancing the environment.  Ryan Canart, 20, of Gibsons  said he has always  wanted a career in _____  conservation. Unfortunately, most of the  college training  courses he has investigated require a minimum of six months  work experience in  the field.  Until recently, the     ____  only jobs open to  Canart    were    in  restaurants and manual labour.  His luck changed in September  when he look a job as a full-lime  intern for the Sunshine Coast  Salmonid Enhancement Society  as part of the Environmental  Youth Team project. He will  remain there until March 31.  The provincial program provides funding for non-profit  environmental organizations to  hire young people full-lime for a  maximum of eight monlhs, said  administrator Mike Dezell.  He said the program has  sponsored 74 projects, involving  257 young people, ages 16 to 24,  in 44 communities throughout  BC.  Dezell said the program is an  "improved version" of the  recently cancelled federal Environmental Youth Corp. Like that  program, the Youth Team  employs environmental work  crews, but il also includes  interns, like Canart, who learn  technical skills on the job.  "This is more than the old  This is more  than the old  model..'  -MikeDezzell  model - a dozen students wilh  one shovel," said Dezell. "Trail  building is important, but there is  much more to environmental  work lhan just that."  Canart is being trained as a  fish culturalist at the Soames  Creek Hatchery near Gibsons.  His duties include  _____   feeding and caring  for fish, identification  and inventory work,  small hatchery construction projects,  collecting     brood  stock, and enumerating and incubating  eggs, said hatchery       manager Bob  Amstead. He said the  program has been  "extremely beneficial" both for  the society and Canart.  "He gets the benefits of job  training, and we gel the benefit  of having a full-time employee  for a lime," said Amstead,  adding the only other full-time  worker is technician Darlene  Nuski, whose salary is paid by  the Sechelt Indian Band.  Canart said the job "has  opened a whole range of opportunities," including a conservation program he is considering  taking at Selkirk College next  year.  The Environmental Youth  Team targets youths who traditionally have difficulty finding  work, said administrator Dezell.  Although recipient organizations  have complete freedom in hiring,  they are asked to advertise the  positions to the identified  groups, he said. The target  groups include aboriginals, visible minorities, the handicapped,  women, and income-assistance  recipients.
