"We want to see a commercial fishery  based on licensing, not race," said coalition administrator Phil Eidsvic. "If there  isn't movement from the Liberals, we're  considering coordinated harbour blockades  later this year. We're in a holding pattern  right now, waiting to see what they are  going to do."  Eidsvic said this form of 'direct action'  is just one of several being considered for  implementation later this year.  Eighteen Coalition members from the  Sunshine Coast were among the 850 members attending Friday's annual general  meeting in Nanaimo, where the matter was  discussed. The coalition      claims membership of , ...  12,000. Were considering  Eidsvic was adamant coordinated harbour  that the Coalition's poli-        .,    .     .     , .  cies were not racially        blacttades later  this year'  motivated and he claims  many aboriginal fishermen  support the Coalition's  stand against the AFS.  "Thirty per cent of the commercial fishery is done by native fishermen now. Basically, anyone who can afford lo get a  licence can fish. Once the AFS is completely implemented, band councils will  decide who can fish. There are all sorts of  jurisdictional problems, too. On Monday,  George Campeau of the Lower Fraser  Aboriginal Fisheries Commission claimed       that natives own 100 per  cent of Fraser River  salmon runs. The Nu  Chal-Nulh tribal council  is claiming they own 30  per cent of all west coast  salmon stocks. It goes on  and on."          Coalition members are  afraid they cannot rely on  the Crown in appealing decisions to the  Supreme Court of Canada and at the annual general meeting, resolutions were  passed to provide funding for three years  of litigation services for Coalition interests. Friday's decision to "take any action  ���Phil Eidsvic  necessary to stop the AFS" was almost  unanimous.  Other Coalition strategies for the  upcoming year include: appealing BC  appellate court decisions in the Supreme  Court of Canada; lobbying new members  of Parliament; holding fisheries 'open  houses'; and holding salmon barbecues in  coastal communities to raise funds and  awareness  The Coalition is also boycotting the  WestCoast Fishermen. The reason for the  boycott, Eidsvic said, is that "over the past  10 years they have liad a bias in favour of  aboriginal fishing. We've asked our members to cancel their subscriptions, and to  not buy The Fisherman. Why should we  support a magazine which supports the  destruction of our way of life?"  BC Ferry fare hikes  en route, say critics  by Ian Cobb  There are local fears that  ferry rates to the Sunshine  Coast have been herded inlo an  elevator and lhat the BC Ferries  Corporation is jusl waiting to  hil Ihe 'up' button.  Two groups ��� the Sunshine  Coasl Commuters' Association  and the West Howe Sound  Electors' Association ��� believe  the corporation is selling Ihe  scene for a price  increase to users on        the strength of  recenl reporis that  their smaller routes  losl $67 million lasl  year.  Lumped into the  category of 'smaller  routes' is the Horseshoe Bay-Langdale  (Sunshine Coast)  run.  "They're obvi- -~���~  ously setting us up  for a fare increase," said Sunshine Coast Commuters' Association representative Ken  Erickson.  An indicator of that is a pamphlet recently being distributed  lo riders, mostly at vehicle tick-  el windows, Erickson said.  The pamphlet stales that the  Corporation is worried about  whether or not it can meet Ihe  challenges posed by a fiscally  slim decade (the 1990s).  "The Corporation is working  to be more safety conscious and  responsive to customers while  being efficient and effective at  all costs," it says.  "The fares (tariffs) are set on  a basis of fairness to our customers, the costs and benefits  involved in Ihe service, and the  provision of revenues needed to  'They're  obviously  setting us up  for a fare  increase'  ���Ken Erikson  run the ferry service," the pamphlet reads. And that is why  fares must be adjusted "periodically."  On the other side of the pamphlet, BC Ferries supplies users  with "the facts" and, in a small  chart, the Sunshine Coast is  shown as a money-losing route,  with a 69 per cent cost recovery  requiring SIS-million annually  in subsidies.  All of this is pure        poppycock, Erickson said.  Using statistics  from BC Ferries'  own 1992 year-end  report, he calculate*  that the corporation"  has "a 102 per cent  cost recovery for  the Horseshoe Bay-  Langdale nm." That  means the Queen of  ~~~~ Cowichan brings in  a two per cent profit  with each sailing, he said.  In addition, commuters, of  which there are an estimated  500-500 on Ihe Coast, receive a  21-per-cenl discount when they  purchase ticket books (of 10),  while ferry riders to Bowen  Island, which runs at a 47-percent cost recovery, gel a 41-percent discount on fares with the  books.  "ll gets even more bizarre,"  Erickson said, noting lhat on  some smaller northern runs,  operating on a 49-per-cent  recovery basis, commuters get  discounts of 21 to 33 per cent.  According to BC Ferries, the  only money-making runs are the  boats to Vancouver Island, with  a 104-per-cenl cost recovery  and a zero subsidy.  turn lo page 2  Hey!...

Joel Johnstone photo  Environmental group lauds designation of new park  by Don Anderson  A local environmentalist says  ihe NDP government decision  lo designate a parcel of land in  the Chilcotin Mountains should  emphasize the need for more  parkland on Ihe Sunshine Coasl,  "By having a place of Ihis  importance added to the protected areas, following the Tatshenshini, the Nisga'a (Memorial  Lava Beds) and the Kulzeyma-  teen, whal the government has  done is establish ils credibility in  protecting Ihe full wilderness  system in BC." Coast resident  George Smith said, following  last week's announcement.  Smith is conservation director  for Ihe Canadian Parks and  Wilderness Sociely (CPAWS)  and advocate for ihe protection  of the 6.200 hectare plateau, Ihe  highest poinl of land on the  Coasl.  "Al least ihe government is  serious (about park protection);  now 1 hope the bureaucrats will  lake the Tetrahedron seriously."  The plateau is in its fourth  year of review by the Local  Resource Use Plan (LRUP) committee, and Smith hopes a conclusion will soon lie arrived at.  He said "somebody should be  embarrassed" ut the lime spent  reviewing Ihe lands ��� considered by many residents as the  Coast's most guarded secret ���  and by ihe fact thai "there has  never been any wilderness protection" in the area.  "So let's get on with it,"  Smith said.  On Jan. 13, Premier Mike  Harcourt announced ihe creation  of Ts'il'os Provincial Park,  encompassing 233,000 hectares  near the Chilco Lake on the east  side of the Coast Mountains. The  lake is the third most significant  source of sockeye salmon, providing spawning grounds for as  many as 600,000 fish a year.  llie area includes portions of  the interior Douglas fir, coastal  western hemlock and montane  spruce, among other species. The  area is the home to California big  horn sheep, peregrine falcons,  fishers, wolverine, mountain  goats and grizzly bears.  "Like the Tatshenshini and  Khulzeymateen, today's protection of this spectacular scenic  and wildlife area represents  another major step toward our  goal of doubling B.C.'s parks  and protected wilderness," Harcourt said.  Provincial budget cuts leave school district bruised, angry  by Darah Hansen  It was bad news, bad news  and more bad news al the school  district's board meeting Tuesday  night.  Secretary-treasurer Tim  Anderson announced that a further $70,000 musl be cut from  an already tight education budget.  Though he didn't specify  where the budget would be  thinned, Anderson said neither  layoffs nor changes to classroom services were expected.  This round of budget slashing  is due primarily to the withdrawal of additional funding to  approximately 70 native students in Ihe district. The students are attending schools  where no special native education programs are in place and  they are therefore not eligible  for special Ministry of Education dollars.  Anderson said the mix-up  resulted from recommendations  made by a private consultant to  the district who said the students  would qualify for extra funding.  The ministry has further  removed money from career  preparation courses offered by  the high schools.  Tuesday's announcement  sparked frustration among  school board trustees. Board  chair Pal Stuart commented, "I  think Ihe financial crunch is  upon us...there gels lo be a poinl  where the bottom line means we  can't educate students."  Earlier in the school year the  budget was reduced $160,000  after student enrolment fell  below the ministry's predicted  figures.  In September, $833,000 was  streamed off the budget to eliminate a potential deficit for the  coming year. Three full-time  teaching assistant positions were  cut al that time as was significant funding lo the continuing  education program and library  book fund.  Maintenance and custodial  services also suffered, losing  $55,000 of Iheir regular funding.

The murder trial for Dragan Zagorac, 48,  opened Jan. 11 in Ihe Court of Queen's  Bench, Edmonton.  Residents  meet over  ferry  situation  from page I  "(live me a break," Erickson  said. "They're trying to justify  the Vancouver Island run for  tourism." Erickson said he's also  heard a rumor lhat BC Ferries is  thinking of taking the Queen of  Cowichan off Ihe Sunshine Coast  run ��� and replacing il wilh a  smaller ferry ��� during Ihe  Commonwealth Games so lhal  an extra ship will be available for  runs oul to Ihe Island.  "Are tourists more important  than taxpayers now?" Erickson  asked.  The Coast News repeatedly  called BC Ferries for comment  on Ihis rumor and on Ihe possibility of an increase in Sunshine  Coasl ferry fares. However, no  one was available for comment.  A Jan. 12 Vancouver Sun article quoted BC Ferries general  manager Rod Morrison as saying  he believed people are happy  wilh the services they get.  Zagorac was arrested in Gibsons by local  RCMP Oct. 16, 199.1, one year after Edmonton police had launched a nation-wide search  for Ihe man.  Zagorac is charged in the 1992 murder of  his 37-year-old common-law wife. The  woman was found outside the couple's  Edmonton apartment with severe head  injuries in September of that year. She later  died as a result of her injuries.  Const. Gary Boulilier of Ihe Gibsons  RCMP detachment is currently in Edmonton  lending testimony in Ihe case.  The trial is on-going.  Some Coast residents believe a BC Ferries fare increase to be looming on the horizon.  file photo  "We like lo Ihink one of Ihe  reasons is (lhat) people are somewhat satisfied with the fares,  compared with those charged in  Washington State, Alaska, and  particularly across the English  Channel where they are five lo  six limes more than those in  B.C.," Morrison said in the Sun  article.  "They're playing around wilh  Ihe figures again," said West  Howe Sound Electors' Association president Daphne Avis.  About SO people gathered al  Langdale Elementary School  Jan. 12 to discuss concerns about  the feny and Langdale Terminal.  "At what point does il (run)  become a service or a profit  maker?" asked WHSEA founding member Eric Cardinall.  Ken Erickson, who attended  the meeting, said thai, after  reviewing the ferries year-end  report, he's convinced that the  Horseshoe Bay-Langdale run is a  money-maker, that it's the north  ern routes thai lose money and  yet Ihe Sunshine Coast is considered a money-losing run.  As for figures being bent lo  achieve a means, Erickson went  lo Ihis page 17 of BC Ferries  year-end reporl.  "Computer modeling also  allows us to approach the fare  structure in an innovative fashion," the reporl stales.  "ll doesn't take long for you  to figure oul what's going on,"  Erickson added.  Decline predicted in Gibsons construction  The building boom Gibsons  experienced between 1990 and  1992 ground to a halt last year,  when building permits issued  dropped to the lowest level since  1988.  A total of 136 building permits, valued at $7.1 million, were  issued between Jan. I and Dec.  31, 1993, reports municipal  building inspector Roland  Seguin. Thai's a drop of roughly  30 per cent in dollar value from  1992 when Gibsons processed  and issued 177 permits valued at  $10.1 million.  In 1988, the previous low  point, 125 permits valued al $3.9  million were issued..  During a Jan. 11 Gibsons  council committee-of-the-whole  meeting, Seguin said he expects  the downward trend to continue.  The peak of building in the  town was 1991 when 186 permits were issued at a value of  $17.6 million.  Seguin, in his year-end report  to council, noted that 205 "new"  business licences were processed  in 1993 at a total fee of $65,235.  In addition, 12 Residential  Rehabilitation Assistance Program applications were approved  last year and that number is also  expected to decline this year.  "We anticipate less activity in  the RRAP program this year,"  said municipal administrator Dan  Legg.  Gibsons swimming pool 'should' open by month's end  The re-opening of Ihe Gibsons  Pool has been bumped from Jan.  15 lo Jan. 31 ��� but this lime Ihe  Jan. 31 opening date should be a  keeper.  "Final permits pending, we  hope to be in operation by the  end of the month," aquatic manager Wendy Gilbertson reported  in a Jan. 7 report lo Gibsons  It pays to  advertise in the  COAST NEWS  CLASSIFIEDS!  town council.  "Lessons have been scheduled  to commence on Valentine's Day  (Feb. 14)."  During a Jan. II Gibsons  council commitlee-of-the whole  meeting, Gilbertson told council,  "Keeping my fingers crossed, the  pool should open on the 31st of  Ihis month." All that's left to do  setting it straight  in the facility is final touches,  such as tiling, epoxy decking and  painting, she said. All the tanks  have been filled and tested and  "they're all fine."  In addition, Gilbertson told  council about a tear-drop unit,  suspended over the childrens'  wading pool, that is being tested.  After she explained that the  tear-drop unit drops waler  droplets on the kids in the wading pool, Gibsons mayor Eric  Small quipped, "You mean we're  paying money in Gibsons lo  make rain?"  Finally, the pool will be  searching for qualified employees, since more than half of the  previous staff is not reluming.  District of Seclielt  P 0 Box 129,5545 Intel Avenue. Sechell.

Bul it has taken three Irips to  war-lorn El Salvador to witness  thai suffering up close, and it  has made all the difference in  her life.  Stewart, an instructor at the  Suncoast Vocational Training  Program, visited Ihe country for  Ihe first lime in l-'cbruary 1991.  Al lhat lime, Ihe country was  embroiled in a lengthy civil war  which would eventually claim  some 75,000 Salvadoran lives.  "Before I wenl Ihe first lime,  I did a lot of reading about  accounts and had to face Ihe  reality of the possibility of tor-  lure," she said.  "There was danger, bul nothing in comparison lo whal Ihey  lived in every day of Iheir  lives...every minute of Iheir day  was a sacrifice."  Stewart and her fellow travellers were required lo lake  cover under blankets as they  rode through the city and the  outlying areas in complete darkness, an experience thai was  both "very dramatic" and  "eerie."  On her third  trip to the country  in March 1993,  Stewart remained  suspicious of  everyone, preferring to keep to  herself. Lack of  trust dominates  everyday life in ___^_  San Salvador,  where people rarely offer their  name or talk to each other.  "Everyone is very cautious in  El Salvador," she said.  During a Jan. 10 slide presentation for the Sunshine Coast  Peace Group, Stewart displayed  slides capturing the impoverished lifestyle of residents of a  small village outside San Salvador.

Their clothes are tattered and  there are obvious signs of sickness and unhealthy living conditions.  "A lot of the  people are sick,"  Stewart said,  adding that respiratory diseases  and nutritional  deficiencies have  ravaged the coun-       try.  Attributed to  the lack of nutrition is the cost  of milk and orange juice, which  are marked up over such items  as pop. One particular woman  Stewart met was forced to feed  her baby Coca Cola because she  couldn't afford milk.  "It's hard for us to realize  what having nothing means,"  Stewart said.

Fire regulations raise school board ire  by Darah Hansen  A letter from the Town of  Gibsons highlighting a number  of outstanding fire code deficiencies at Elphinstone Secondary School has the local  school board seeing red.  The letter, dated Dec. 10 and  signed by Gibsons town administrator Dan Legg, notes coun-  cil's concern over several  inspection reports received from  the West Howe Sound Fire Pro-  leclion Committee.  The reporis show Ihe school  to he lacking in several areas  relating In Ihe fire code wilh  some recurring deficiencies dating back almost two years.  Gibsons council has asked  Ihe board lo explain how and  when these deficiencies will be  addressed.  But, according to school dislricl secretary-treasurer Tim  Anderson, the concern shown  by Ihe town for Ihe school's fire  code deficiencies is more likely  a "political thing" lhan an issue  of safely.  "Anything that's radically  wrong (at the school) has been  fixed," said Anderson, who  maintains lhal the school has  high fire safety standards. A fire  drill conducted in early December successfully evacuated all  750 students from the building  in approximately one minute, he  said.  Anderson said several of the  minor deficiencies mentioned  by fire inspectors are nol new.  Some, he said, such as the  adjustments required to Ihe door  swings allowing for proper clos  ing and latching of all fire  doors, have been known to be  lacking from the school for  seven years.  While "that's not saying we  shouldn't react to the report recommendations," said Anderson,  he queslioned the sudden urgency expressed by the town for  compliance.  'Anything that's  radically wrong at  the school has been  fixed'  ���Tim Anderson  Anderson suggested a link  between the town's interest in  Ihe fire code reporis and the  school board's expressed displeasure at having to fit a $2  million expansion to Elphinstone with a cosily sprinkler  system as required by a new  town bylaw.  If the district fails to acquire  a building permit to construct  school additions prior to the  Feb. 1 deadline when the new  bylaw takes effect, the sprinkler  system will cosl the already  cash-strapped school board an  additional $350,000. School  architects have argued on behalf  of the dislricl thai the sprinkler  system is an unnecessary cost.  Town administrator Dan  Legg denied lhat Ihe letter from  Ihe town was an act of politics.  "Council was concerned that  there appears to be several safety (hazards) that the school has  apparently done nothing about.  "The school board may think  this is political but Gibsons  council thinks it's just common  sense thai these fire safely deficiencies should be cleaned up."  Among Ihe deficiencies  appearing repeatedly on the fire  inspectors' reports are the lack  of smoke detectors in exit stairwells; missing fire extinguishers  in the school's metal shop, the  north portable and the electrical  room; and required servicing on  emergency exit and exterior  lights.  The reporis further stale an  electric hot water tank inside a  closed natural gas box poses a  risk of explosion at the school.  The inspector recommended  removing the lank from the area  or providing the site wilh adequate ventilation.  At Tuesday night's school  board meeting, board chair Pat  Stuart said the letter represented  Ihe first notification trustees had  been given regarding fire code  problems at Ihe school.  Stuart said those responsible  for dealing with the inspection  reporis are school principal  Martyn Wilson and head of  maintenance Fred Scotl.  The board agreed to draft a  letter to Gibsons town council  formally outlining the correction  date of all the deficiencies.  Meanwhile, tenders for the  Elphinstone additions close Jan.  28. To date. 16 contractors have  placed bids on the projeci.  can do about it."  After 12 years of civil war,  the country is currently preparing for the first free and fair  elections in March. Every elected office, including the presidency and seats in the legislative assembly, will be up for  vote.  Despite the gradual movement toward a more stable and  fair government, Ihe face of  internal strife still remains.  Death squads actively patrol  city streets in vehicles wilh  smoked-glass windows, shielding the identities of the occupants inside.  Stewart would like lo return  lo El Salvador, if only to reaffirm her belief in Ihe strength of  Ihe human will, notably that of  the Salvadoran people.  "The biggest hope is for the  future. These people have never  given up hope and trust," she  said.

The lake by  itself is a thing of beauty, valuable in itself, bul it also provides protection for the third most important spawning  ground for salmon spawning on Ihe Fraser River system,  which is itself the most important salmon river system in the  country.  However, the designation of this park holds even greater  significance for this area; it extends some hope to those trying to preserve the Tetrahedron.  The Chilko Lake area, like the Telrahedron, had a number  ���of different stakeholder groups, with different interests,  involved in the process which resulted in the designation of  the area as a wildlife park and yet, Ihey were able lo arrive  at a point where all sides, including industry, came away  with something.  If this same spirit of co-operation can be brought into  focus on the Tetrahedron, it's possible lhal a similarly beneficial outcome can be achieved here.  Harbour blockade a  sinker of a strategy  We can understand the frustration of the BC Fisheries  Survival Coalition in not being able to get the federal government to bend to its will on implementation of its Aboriginal Fishing Strategy.  However, we can't help but question the wisdom of its  decision to consider a coordinated blockade of the  province's coastal harbours later this year, which presumably means during the summer.  While such a maneuver might, as the organization hopes,  get the attention of the federal government, it also has the  potential to anger any number of coastal residents who  might otherwise support the Coalition's cause.  A blockade is much more likely to offend Ihe fundamental sense of justice of those who depend on other sectors of  the economy, such as tourism, for their livelihood ��� and lo  simply raise new sources of hostility. The coalition probably  won't win much sympathy for Iheir economic plight by ruining the economic lives of those who make their living in  other endeavours.  The bright side here is that the blockade lactic is only one  of several that the Coalition is considering. It is to be hoped,  for their sake, and ours, they find one lhat is targeted more  toward the government than at their neighbours.  letters  Ticked over tickets  At Uie beginning of January,  I tried to re-validate my ferry  commuter ticket...I was told  that the BC Ferries are nol prepared to revalidate them,  because the revalidation period  of allegedly one month (December 93) had expired.  When I purchased the booklet of tickets I was aware that  expired tickets would be revalidated by BC Ferries, bul was  not told that there was a limited  revalidation period of only one  month.  Reading through the tickets I  find that nowhere is it mentioned that there is a time limit  on revalidation.  Purchasers of tickets are not  told that there is such a one  month time limit, neither is  there any notice for the public to  read in your BC Ferries ticket  offices explaining time limits on  revalidation.  It is most unfair that you  place a very short time limit on  revalidation. You are getting  paid months before you provide  the service!  In other words, your cash  flow must look very healthy.  That you impose unworkable  time limits on revalidation creates a lot of hardship on ferry  passengers ��� your customers,  supporters and, hopefully, voters.  You make us pay the differ  ence between the old ticket  price an Ihe value of the new  tickets.  I have no objections to this  However, the very fact that you  do make us pay the difference  should prove to you that the  imposition of an inadequate  time limit on revalidation is  unfair, unjustified and amounts  to harassment of the public,  your customers.  1 appeal to you to immediately rescind the time limit on  revalidation; or alternatively  extend it to three months and  print on the ticket such enforceable time limits. Where is your  proverbial Canadian sense of  fairness?  JAKOB KNAUS  Sechelt  Of tree rings  and things  John Field of Friends of  Caren and Marion Porter should  not get too carried away by the  finding of Canada s oldest  stump (Canada's oldest Iree -  Coast News Jan. 3).  They must be careful not to  fall into the same trap as did the  Californians when for years  they touted the giant redwoods,  some of which were over 20  feet in diameter with ring counts  of 1,500 years, as Ihe oldest living things on earth.

To his amazement these  gnarled and twisted trees, seldom over 25 feet high, produced  ring counts of up to 4.000 years,  or back to the lime of the early  pharaohs.  The Vancouver-based Marion Porter reports a ring count  for the stump of 10 in one centimetre.  For a yellow cedar tree this is  fast indeed.  In my living room I have a  small section of yellow cedar  which has a count in one part of  100 years for one and a half  centimetres (9/16 inch).  In a total of 12.5 centimetres  (five inches), the count is 465  years.  At this rate a tree of 100 centimetres (40 inches) in diameter  could well be 1,600 years old or  even older.  The oldest tree in California  may be a yellow cedar, lt is  more than likely Uie oldest yellow cedar is an insignificant tree  of no more than three feet in  diameter growing under extreme  conditions at the limit of its  range.  Friends of Caren must lake a  much broader survey of the high  elevation forest before they  sound Ihe trumpets for the oldest tree in Canada I would hate  to think they are barking up die  wrong tree.  JAMES R. THOMSON  Gibsons  Could this be the year in which Quebec finally leaves?  The imminent departure of Robert Bourassa. the  long-serving Premier of Quebec, from the political  stage is sure lo bring the question of the province's  future back into Ihe forefront of Canadian concerns, whether Canadians are ready for it or not  Whatever Bourassa's proven survival skills al  Uie helm of his troubled province and whatever his  status as a long-standing if sometimes enigmatic  federalist, he has not distinguished himself in Ihe  matter of preparing a successor to lead his pam  There is a deceptive simplicity in the way  Daniel Johnson has been chosen to inherit the  Bourassa mantle. Unchallenged, the son of a former Union Salionale premier and Uie brother of a  Separatists premier. Johnson seems to have won  the premiership by default rather lhan by any surge  of unanimous Liberal acclaim.  One report from Quebec has as many as half the  provincial cabinet will leave politics rather than  serve under Johnson. Generally regarded as tedious  and dull, Johnson is described by one reporter from  the Quebec newspaper L'Actualite as being something of a Reaganite whose principal identifiable  philosophic tenet has to do wilh government downsizing. This is not an appetizing mixture for the  leader of the federal forces in Quebec.  Nor do tilings stand well wiUi the party Johnson  is to lead. Apart from the discontent within the cabinet, this appears to be a tired party too long in  power. The last few years of high unemployment  musings  and economic stagnation have left the Liberals lagging well behind the Parti Quebecois in the opinion  polls and Ihey musl hold an election by September  of this year.  The failure of (he Meech Lake Accord, the  defeat of Ihe federal referendum in 1992, may be  chickens coming finally home lo roost in the fall of  1994 In the 10 years since Mulroney led his Conservatives to power in Canada, there has been a  great diminishment of good will outside of Quebec.  The single biggest factor may have been  Bourassa's sign bylaw. A real movement throughout English-speaking Canada to make itself bilingual through French immersion courses for its children, ran onto the rock of Bourassa's unilingual  sign bylaw with a sense of betrayal and disbelief.  Now there appears to be a fatigue throughout  the country with the whole quesUon of Quebec's  future and if the Parti Quebecois does come to  John burnside  power some lime this year there seems little passion in Ihe rest of the country to oppose them. The  Reformers and Ihe Bloc Quebecois together control  a third of the elected seals in the House of Commons. The Bloc Quebecois wants out of Canada  and the Reformers want Ihem to go. Canada as we  know it may not survive Uie year.  So what, I hear you ask. Yes, well, que sera,  sera, bul it is hard to believe that Canada and Quebec both, will not be weakened by the separation.  The country is scarcely in blooming health as it is.  There are, it seems, at least 250,000 homeless people in this country. That is one Canadian in 100  approximately, who cannot afford shelter. One cannot walk through the centre of any city in this  country loday without being accosted by panhandlers. Many of the homeless are as young as 12 and  child prostitution is a feature of all our major cities.  Whatever die long term results of the free trade  agreement with the US and the recently approved  North American Free Trade Agreement, Ihere can  be no doubt that in the short term there has been  considerable economic disruption. It is a weakened  country, then, which faces the renewed threat of  Quebec separation, a country which has to a large  degree lost confidence in itself.  What the effect will be of renewed political  instability on the all-powerful financial money  managers can only be guessed at. Whal is sure is  that there is an entire world hungry for capital  investment and a weakened and divided Canada  will be in a poor stale to compete. Nothing alarms  Ihe money men more than political instability and  they do have a whole world lo choose from.  There is a great sadness here. The brave and  unlikely dream of a Canada stretching from sea to  sea is dying less than 100 years after it came to be.  A generation ago, this was the most blessed of the  world's jurisdictions, prosperous and well-regarded  internationally. Its small, prosperous population  coupled with its massive reserves of resources  seemed to assure a great future.  If 1994 does mark the end of the federation the  next generation of Canadians and Quebecois may  live to regret Ihe failures and mismanagement of  recent governments. But if Canadians lack the will  to maintain the federation no amount of regret will  save the country. It will become a great might-  have-been.

This, if true, would hardly  be what you'd call news, bul the  trend, if true again, could be  interesting.  For example there are Iwo  Agalha Christie series running  weekly on Ihree TV stations,  Poirot and Miss Marple, and  Ihere is no other writer that I  know who is getting thai kind of  exposure in the North American  market in 1994.  There is also a revival of  Sherlock Holmes, bul then Ihere  has maybe nol been a year in the  past 70 when there has not been  a revival of Sherlock Holmes.  This one lough is being given an  extraordinary amount of hoop-la  it seems lo mc and it has been  given a much lusher production  lhan any before il and sure il  seems to me the besl there has  been done.  When you add to this Ihe  occasional series by Ngao  Marsh (Chief Inspector Roderick Alleyn and Agalha Troy)  you may begin lo wonder how  all this olde fashioned stuff is  managing to shoulder its way  in a nutshell  into today's ultra lough and  infinitely calculated North  American TV market.  Sherlock Holmes I guess we  can understand. Sherlock  Holmes I guess has pretty well  made it lo legend. My favourite  Sherlock Holmes story involves  Hassan the Assassin, Sultan of  Turkey. Al Ihe time the new  Sherlock Holmes stories were  coming out in the Strand Magazine, but at the time also the  Young Turks were marching on  Istanbul, Hassan's court had  begun lo drift away but he  remained there on his throne. A  new issue of the Strand Magazine had just come in and his  Vizier was translating the latest  Sherlock Holmes and passing it  to him page by page. And there  they found him, waiting for ihe  end of Ihe story.  Agatha Christie's current  stuart nutter  vogue is for me harder to understand.  She was known to me as a  name quite early in my life. I  was 1 would Ihink aboul six  when she did a disappearing act  and was popularly supposed to  have been kidnapped. There was  a country-wide search in all the  papers. Eventually she turned up  living quietly in a cottage on  Dartmoor.  I remember Ihis because the  first time I was taken to a theatre  was to hear my cousin sing the  Lord High Executioner in the  Mikado in London.  There is a song in there  where the executioner is about  to cut off someone's head and  he, a soft-hearted fellow really,  is trying to describe a better  country that the victim will be  going lo than he has seen before.  Francis added a line of his own:  where Agatha Christie will  never be missed.  She is certainly nol being  missed here Ihis year and lhat is  to my mind a bit of a mystery in  ilself. Why is Ihere now Ihis  popularity for Miss Marple and  her tucked away village and thai  finnicky little Belgian wilh his  little grey cells, Poirot?  The things are of course,  quite smashingly produced and  quite beautifully acted, bul Ihe  fact is lhal Ihe plots are mostly  of the most threadbare stuff, the  social relationships are of another age and Ihe whole shebang is  a package from Britain.  1 think you would have lo say  that il is Ihe mystery/detective  story basis lhal is winning Ihe  current support and this is generally held to have begun with  Edgar Allen Poe in Ihe southern  Stales with his story The Purloined Letter.  Whal we've nol got, or whal  we may have had and turned  away form, is the style of it. We  flood Ihe screens wilh 'real'  crime stories from the street and  maybe part of the reason for  Miss Marple's new popularity is  simply that we would do almost  anything lo turn away from this.  letters  Order of BC  nominations due  Nominations are now open  for Ihe Order of British  Columbia, the province's highest  award, Government Services  Minister Robin Blencoe  announced recently.  "The Order of British  Columbia is awarded annually to  12 individuals who have excelled  in any field benefitting the people of BC or elsewhere,"  Blencoe said.  "We are looking for individuals who have made remarkable  Contributions in communily service, sports, the arts, labour,  business, research and Ihe professions." By honouring British  Columbians for Iheir remarkable  contributions, wc hope lo inspire  others to achieve even greater  successes in the future, Blencoe  said.  Nominalions for ihe Order of  BC will be accepted until March  17. Recipients are selected by an  independent advisory council  headed by the Chief Justice of  BC. Nomination forms are available by writing to the Order of  British Columbia, Parliament  Building, Victoria, BC V8V 1X4  or through your local Government Agent's office.  GEORGEBAKER  Honours and Awards  Co-ordinator  Capt Vancouver  stopover clarified  Thanks to E.H. Burritt (Dec.  20) for clarifying some of the  reasons behind the misplacement  of the monument lo Capt.  George Vancouver at Chaster  Park. It's not surprising that  Edward Atlee and Burritt may  have been misled by Maj. J.S.  Matthews, former head of the  Vancouver Archives.  Matthews often voiced highly  subjective opinions about local  history and some of his unsubstantiated suppositions won  many converts.  Unlike Burritt, Capt. Vancouver did not develop his 'feel' for  Sunshine Coast topography from  the top of Mt. Elphinstone. He  systematically took remarkably  precise readings at sea level,  recorded these in his journal and  described in considerable detail  the course of his expedition.  That's why 1 published my  booklet, Warpings Along.the  ���Sunshine Goast in 1792. lt  "includes Capt. Vancouver's journal entry about his stop inside  Howe Sound (ie. in the present  Gibsons Harbour). The confirmation Burritt seeks is there. It's  also endorsed by William Kaye  Lamb, BC's preeminent living  archivist and editor of The Voyage of George Vancouver 1791-  1795.  mmm$ as mvwiots  WORKSHOP  for parents and community at Chatelech Secondary (Library)  Monday, January 24, (7-9) ��� Presenter Judy Lalonde, Alcohol & Drug  Foundation  Iofrff!

Now, they're being invited to join forces  wilh a new sociely lhat is committed lo advocating improvements to our link to the Lower  Mainland and to act as an informed voice.  The Sunshine Coast Commuters Association received an official notification Jan. 13  that its application for status as a non-profit  association had been accepted.  "We're not just here for the commuters, we  are here for everyone on the Coasl. We're  fighting to help all users of the feny," said  association representative Ken Erickson.  The purpose of the society, as outlined in  its constitution, is "lo work to provide commuters, frequent travellers and individual  commercial users of BC Ferries' Sunshine  Coasl route, with an efficient, safe and high  level of customer service."  "We're fighting to help all  users of the ferry'  -Ken Erickson  As well, the sociely hopes to be "Ihe catalyst for involving the Sunshine Coast citizens,  groups and local governments in advocating  improvements in ferry transportation services."  The association is also aiming to "encourage the adoption of municipal, regional and  federal policies to provide ferry service" to  Coast residents that are safe, efficient and  environmentally sound.  The association, numbering eight members  so far, was born in June 1993 when commuters were faced with BC Femes' new summer schedule, which included an extra ship on  the Nanaimo-Horseshoc Bay run. The extra  ferry berthed overnights on Sundays and  Thursdays at Ihe Queen of Cowichan's vacant  dock and was still moored there when the  Coast ferry would arrive the next morning.  A 20-minute delay would ensue, with the  Queen of Cowichan waiting off in Howe  Sound until the Nanaimo feny sailed.  The extra delays caused commuters to be  late for work in Vancouver, wilh one reputedly losing her job as a result of being late.  The society is now busy writing letters lo  the feny corporation and the provincial government ��� airing Iheir concerns and those of  other Coast residents.  Gravel pit developers request subdivision  by Darah Hansen  Between the developers, the  residents and the regional district, no one is happy with what  is or isn't going on down  Raven's Cry Road.  Developers of the Halfmoon  Bay property, David Speers and  John Hammond, met with members of the regional district's  advisory planning committee  Tuesday night in an attempt to  renegotiate terms of a requested  subdivision.  The developers want to  divide eight of the original 30  five-acre lots on the property.  Eighteen five-acre lots have  been sold.  The regional district turned  down the subdivision request in  December. Regional director for  the area, Peggy Connor, said the  planning committee felt it was  loo soon to change the lot limitations set under the official community plan.  At Tuesday's meeting, Connor upheld Ihe planning committee's earlier decision, saying the  subdivision request will be  reviewed again in five months.  Meanwhile, Hammond and  Speers say they will go ahead  John  Hammond.  Joel Johnstone  photo  with a controversial gravel pit on  the property if they do not  receive the go-ahead to subdivide.  Property owners on Ihe road  are protesting the gravel pit, cit  ing excess dust, truck traffic and  siltation into nearby park waters  as possible problems arising  from the operation.  Others have concerns the pit  will lower the value of their resi  dential properties.  Speers said he has sympathy  for property owners. He added  that, as a future resident lo the  area, he would personally prefer  not to open the pit.  "It's not like we're a bunch of  money-hungry developers, that's  the last thing we are," said  Speers.  Speers said the company is  just trying to do its job. The estimated worth of the gravel pit  operation is $2 million.  Hammond made a formal  application in October to the federal ministry in charge of issuing  the permit ��� Energy, Mines and  Resources ��� to extract 13,000  tons of gravel per year from his  2.4 hectare property on the road.  Hammond said if subdivision  were possible on the property,  the development company  would hall the process on the  mine application, reserving it for  private use.  "Twelve loads a month. It  would be insignificant," he said.  A public information meeting  for the proposed gravel mining  operation is scheduled to be held  at 7 pm Tuesday, Feb. 1 at  Cooper's Green Hall.

That may sound like positioning of a football learn in a CFL game, but il is actually the  current status of the Tetrahedron Local  Resource Use Plan (LRUP), now entering ils  fifth year.  On Jan. 11, the Outdoor Recreation Council sub-committee approved the wilderness  sub-committee's 'option-six' proposal on condition that the integrated resource management principle for lands in the study area be  followed.  A second motion made during the meeting  recognized the need to form another sub-committee to prepare a map detailing significant  recreational attributes located on the east side  of the study area and areas not detailed in  option six. "They have basically said they  support this compromise proposal to resolve  the land use situation," said Greg Hemphill,  district manager of Ihe Sunshine Coast Forest  Service District, following the recreation subcommittee's meeting last week.  "Whal I'm hoping obviously is all seven  groups will say the same thing. I'm not only  hoping, I'm expecting they will."  Hemphill will take each recommendation  made by Ihe sub-commitlees back to the  stakeholder group for review and further discussion. The group will then make a final recommendation regarding the fate of the Tetrahedron to the provincial government.  In discussions with members of the stakeholders group, he offered to meet with the  seven sub-commitlees to address the issue of  whether or nol there is a need for protected  status of all, or a portion, of the Tetrahedron.  "In talking privately to most of the members, we're pretty close to agreement on that  issue," Hemphill said. "There isn't anything  that hasn't been discussed by these groups.  What I want lo do is pick up the pace a little  bit, especially where I think there is room for  consensus."  A decision on the fate of the 6,200-hectare  parcel of land was to have been made by the  end of 1993. Hemphill the LRUP is "in dan  ger of missing" if it does not begin to speed  up the process.  However, he added lhal the Protected Area  Strategy group is "struggling" with some of  the issues themselves and it is expected that  the deadline will be moved forward, likely to  the end of this year. But that doesn't make up  for that fact that Ihe process has been held  over for the past five years.  Hemphill said Ihe fact that the LRUP is  relying on "true consensus" and involved  numerous outside interests has made reaching  a decision a "painfully slow process."  The Recreation Sub-committee's decision  to accept Ihe wilderness sub-committee's  option-six scenario, provided that two caveats  be included in the recommendation, is a move  toward compromise.  "Strictly from a recreational point of view,  obviously no development anywhere would  be the best scenario," he said.  "They are realistic enough to know that  you have to accomodate other interests in  there."  Rate changes  for electricity users  A recent decision by the B.C. Utilities Commission has resulted in electricity rate  changes for B.C.Hydra residential and commercial customers, effective Jan. 1,  1994. The changes reflect a new way of applying the now confirmed rate increase  of 3.9 per cent, which has been in effect since April 1,1993.  In our rate application, wc proposed to move to flat rates in about eight steps. The  April 1,1993 interim increase included the first step. However, the Commission has  now ordered Hydro to flatten Residential rates in two steps and General rates in  three steps. Accordingly we arc changing our rales.  These changes will not result in any additional revenue for Hydro. The new rate  design schedule will result in decreases for some customers and increases for others,  some in excess of the bill increase cap of 5.9 per cent proposed by Hydro.  Monthly residential bill changes will range from, decreases of 5.5 per cent to  increases up to 10.1 per cent, depending upon the amount of electricity used. Commercial customers on the General Service rate could see monthly bill changes  ranging from decreases of 12.2 per cent to increases up to 9.8 per cent depending on  their electricity use.  For more information on how these changes may affect your electricity bill please  contact your B.C. Hydro Customer Service office at the telephone number indicated  on your Hydro bill.  BG hydro  Recreational interests paramount: Janyk  by Don Anderson  In supporting Ihe wilderness  sub-committee's option-six proposal wilh conditions, the recreation sub-committee has made the  first move toward gaining consensus on Ihe fate of the Tetrahedron.  "As far as I'm concerned, this  is a greal way lo start," said Barry  Janyk, chair of the recreation sub  committee, following last week's  decision. "Bul from a recreation  standpoint, I want more."  Option six designates the  Tetrahedron Bowl as an area necessary for the preservation of  wilderness and recommends lhat  access be moved further down the  Branch 500 logging road.  The proposal also slates lhat  NOW UP TO 60% OFF!  KIDS  Trail Bay Mall, SachaK  88S42S5  no further industrial operations  should be undertaken inside the .  designated area of study and that  the Local Resource Use Plan  (LRUP) committee remain in  place to ensure that effective  guidelines for management be  implemented for areas adjacent lo  wilderness.  As part of option six, Canfor.  has agreed lo manage iu forestry  chart area with "utmost sensitivity" to the nearby Tetrahedron  Plateau. George Smith, a member  of the wilderness sub-committee,  is now re-writing the proposal.  Janyk said the sub-committee  has two additional concerns ���  the proper management of the '  Tetrahedron land base and the  need to establish a management  plan for access to the area.  He would like to see recreational attributes of the area recognized and a management policy  implemented. He said there must '  be some form of sensitivity  toward the area that has been designated in the study plan,  although al the same time, the  committee can't say no to forestry  practices.  Option six will compromise  recreational interests to a point, he   '  said, bul the decision to support   '  Ihe scenario will at least help push  the process toward completion.  mtmimmmmmmimmm Coast News, January 17, 1994  news  Gibsons Sea Cavalcade committee  meets for brainstorming session  The first meeting of Ihe Sea Cavalcade Committee for 1994 was held Monday, Jan. 11.

Robert Burns  When Robert Bums was 14  he wrote his first poem, inspired  by a comely lass working beside  him in the barley harvest.  The disapproving glance of  his slern father working in Ihe  nexl field slopped Robert short  of any further aclion.  Burns wrote Ihe words for  350 songs, all of ihem lo be  sung lo Scottish folk tunes.  Though new found love  inspired many of these songs,  his patriotic love of Scotland  and burning anger al the injustices done his fellow countrymen stirred him lo wrile many  another.  He was, indeed, Ihe voice of  all his fellow peasants crying  out for justice after centuries of  repression and poverty.  In his poems and songs ordinary folk hear iheir now innermost feelings expressed and  thus Burns appeals lo people  beyond his native Scotland.  Though he rebelled against  Ihe strangling hold Ihe kirk  placed upon him. Burns did  declare his belief in a supreme  being. Ihe bulwark to protect  mankind from all Ihe harms of  evil.  He could with rapier thrust  of satire reveal the hypocrisy of  many a church elder and smug  churchgoer.  Burns, loo, fell a strong  responsibility to his family, his  wife and children.  And al limes ihe kirk bell  could slir a twinge of guilt for  his amorous escapades. How  different today's widespread  attitude thai men may abandon  iheir families to pursue ihe 'do  your own thing' idea.  Robert Bums was a man who  loved Ihe companionship of his  fellows, companionship lhat  mean! bright conversation,  debate, songs; a companionship  of one kind he found in the  Masonic Lodge and of another,  quite different indeed, in Ihe  taverns.  Bums thought and wrote his  besl in Ihe vernacular of Ayrshire.  Yel he could through his  self-education and ever searching intellectual interests converse al ease wilh Ihe literati of  Edinburgh and with the gentry  in his home region.  Burns - Ihe voice of Ihe common man and a symbol of  man's striving for justice.

Community housing affordablllty  "For both renters and homeowners,  affordability is the relationship between the  cost of housing and household income. The  commonly accepted standard of affordability  is that annual housing costs not exceed 30  percent of a household's gross income.  However, affordability can vary widely and  any examination of housing affordability  should encompass a number of aspects,  including:  ��� Ownership affordability - the primary  concern is with individuals or families trying  lo purchase their first home.  Percentage of family income required to  purchase a slarter home an percentage of  renters able to purchase a home in a particular community are useful measures lo apply  to this group.  Future affordability must also be considered.  ll is affected by such factors as the community's rale of growth and the ability of the  local residential developmeni markei to keep  pace, the anticipated growth in population of  the first-time buyer age group, mortgage,  interest rales, household income levels and  job security.  ��� Rental affordability - renlal affordability  is increasingly difficult for many British  Columbians.  While some people renl for lifestyle reasons or temporarily (eg, while building a  home) most have lower or less stable  incomes than homeowners and many spend  more tan 30 percent of their gross income for  suitable housing.  Therefore, less income is available to  save for purchase of a dwelling.  New week's column will cover the problems of housing for those with special needs.

Hard to bear  It is a little disquieting to hear lhal the  Lions Club is talking of moving the Polar  Bear Swim out of Davis Bay next year. It  originated here some years back when only a  handful of hardy neighbourhood people decided to celebrate New Year's Day by taking the  frigid dip, then going home to a hot toddy and  a bowl of steaming clam chowder. 1 doubl that  Sechelt would attract the numbers we do as  they lack the wharf that affords such a great  view of the goings-on. Perhaps the people in  Davis Bay will have to go back to Ihe original  concept of just a few neighbours having fun.  Our weather continues to stay fairly mild  bul stormy with exceedingly high tides lashing the shoreline.

It's mild enough to go  for long walks, in suitable rain  gear of course, and poke along  our many shorelines. Flowering  bulbs are pushing up in our gardens so spring must be on its  way.

More than 5,000 boats used Ihe  launching ramp in both 1992 and 199.1 and  over 13,000 people visited Ihe park in both  Ihose years. Jusl under 1,500 divers look lo  Ihe waters at the Green in 1993, an increase of  about 500 over 1992. Since 1991 the number  of boats almost doubled as did the number of  divers.  ll is interesting lo note how very much Ihis  link' park is enjoyed and how fortunate for  everyone that the regional district look il over  for Ihe public's use.  Local singer on telly  Last December Anne Konopasek of  Redrooffs auditioned for a spot in the Variety  Club Telethon due to lake place on leb 5 and  6. She was thrilled and excited to receive  word Ihis week that she has been accepted  and will sing Ihree numbers on the show. Al  Ihe moment Ihere is no word as to Ihe lime  she will be on, bul as soon as Ihis is known I  shall pass it on in a future column.  Anne is just 14 years old and is one of the  young ladies who entertained so beautifully al  Ihe Welcome Beach Christmas dinner together with Carleen Rudland. They also performed at the Light Ihe Lights at Rockwood  and have become well known for their joy of  singing. It was Nikki Weber who started them  singing when they were jusl little girls and it  is good to see that Ihey are still loving making  music for us all lo share. Congratulations lo  Anne - we will watch out for her appearance  in February.  Continuing Ed  When we returned from our Christmas  holiday there was lots of mail to go through,  among which was ihe Capilano College publication of courses available right here in  Sechell. There is something there for absolutely everyone. It is well worth while to have  a look at il lo see which one would meet your  ends.  From Ronnie  Received word from former Halfmoon  Bay resident Ronnie Dunn who now lives in  Scotland and who left behind many friends on  the Sunshine Coast. For months prior to  Christmas Ronnie's lime was almost completely taken up directing Ihe pantomime in  Lanark, the show was a great success and she  is thankful that it is all over.  She mentioned having spent an enjoyable  day with Fran Burnside catching up wilh all  Ihe news. Ronnie is very happy back in Scotland where she is close to family and grandchildren.  For Ihose who have asked me aboul Mary  Shannon's address now lhat she has been  moved to the mainland, she is at Beacon Hill  Lodge, 525 Clyde Avenue, West Vancouver,  V7T 1C4. We managed to gel in to see her  when we got back and found her lo be really  homesick for Ihe Sunshine Coasl and all her  friends.  Any news?  Now that I am back in action again Ihere is  a real need lo hear from our readers aboul  anything you would like lo have mentioned in  this column. How about letting me know of  who is in hospital, or if you have a new baby  bom in the area, or if there are any upcoming  events or meetings of your organization.

Roxanne  Gregory photo  harbour highlights  by Frank Roosen, 883-2920  The Pender Harbour Lions  second annual Hard Times  dance will be held this Saturday,  Jan. 22 at the Lions Park from 8  pm to 1 am. The costume prizes  will be a gathering of most  worn, unique, original, oldest,  worst fitting, most daring, elc.  Great fun, a beauliful hall  and old limes music wilh the  Great Danes and the Dutch will  await you all for the small fee of  $15 per couple prepaid - or $10  each at the door. All proceeds  will go lo designated communily projects.  To top it off there will be a  midnight buffet. This is the best  bargain of the year and a barrel  of fun.  Tickets available at the Oak  Tree Market or by phoning 883-  2920.  Health Centre auxiliary  The winners for the December draw were Art Alexander, J.  Gordon and June Peterson. The  prizes were generously donated  by Joyce Clay, Chuck Williams  and AC Building Supplies.  Thank you.  The kids free monthly draw  was won by Hannah Stark. This  draw is free to all from ages  zero to 13 and each lime you  visit the health centre you gel a  ticket, patient or not, as long as  you are accompanied by a  responsible adult. And how does  Ihe heallh centre auxiliary do all  this?  In steps the:  Bargain Barn  It is scheduled to re-open for  ils regular Thursday and Saturday from 1 to 3:30 pm on Jan.  20. All proceeds from Ihis organization go mainly to the health  clinic wilh surplus goods sent lo  various charitable organizations.  In 1993 this amounted to 125  boxes of mixed supplies. I  would say that's quite impressive.  For the moment, that's until  about mid-March; Ihey are over-  slocked on clothing, so please  hang on and wear them a few  times more. No, not to Ihe Hard  Times dance, because if they're  any good lo Ihe Bargain Barn  Ihey will not qualify for prizes  al ihe Hard Times. They tell me  ihey have all kinds of boxes  with rags, all cut up, ready for  you monkey-wrenchers out  Ihere.  So come on out and gel some  good cleaning rags so your customers can wipe the grease off  their hands after you've shown  them what needs fixing on their  vehicle, instead of sending Ihem  to Ihe bathroom where the paper  dispenser ran oul about this lime  yesterday.  Of course you realize thai all  this takes a lot of man...oops, I  darn near did il again, I have lo  write people power, but what I  really mean is woman power  (after all that's who is running  it).  They are in desperate need of  Ihis power, in other words volunteers, and if any of you can  help out wilh your time to help  this worthwhile communily  organization, please call Muriel  "Psst - Coast News  'Intro Ads' are coming...  and they're free!"

Call 886-CARE.  SPCA  barking  for funds  The Sunshine Coasl SPCA  has put in an early request for  funding from local governments.  The organization is looking  for $2,000 lo $3,000 in granls  from the Dislricl of Sechell and  the Town of Gibsons to offset  the increasing costs of providing  shelter and services for the  countless animals it handles.  SPCA president Bernard  McGrath has written a letter to  Sechell council requesting  administrators allocate some  form of funding toward Ihe  organization from their 1994  budgets.  The organization depends  entirely on donations and the  $10 membership fee lo cover ils  operation costs.  A spaying and neutering fee  is charged to owners of stray  dogs that have not been fixed,  and that money goes directly  into a fund to pay for any veterinary services.  The organization currently  employs one full-time and one  part-lime attendant, while relying on a strong volunteer component. The shelter houses six  to eight dogs at one time on  average, but can have as many  as 16 at peak times.  ���^i:x\i:l(s  DOG OBEDIENCE  CLASSES $60  Hundreds trained since 1980  REGISTER NOW ��� 886-8568  C# "Thank You"  for your continued support!

She woke up wilh what felt like indigestion and her husband Ken drove her down to  the health centre. There was no pain, she  walked into the doctor's office, lay down on  Ihe table and abruptly died.  At her memorial service in Egmonl Saturday, children and friends gathered to pay their  respects and share memories.  Esther was known fondly as Mom to lots  of Egmont people because of her hospitality  to anyone in need.  She and Ken took in many who found  themselves temporarily homeless.  Her smile cheered visitors to Egmont  Thrift Store, where she often volunteered. She  came to Egmont teas, dinners and other community functions. At the Backeddy her green  thumb raised flowers in all Ihe planters.  Slan Jerema rode to Sechelt in style the  next morning. Neighbours wakened by the  ambulance siren will be glad to know he is in  satisfactory condition at St. Mary's Hospital  recovering from an ulcer attack.

Coast job club offers retraining  The job search has suddenly  been made somewhat easier on  the Sunshine Coast wilh the  addition of the Job Finding Club.  Sponsored by the Sunshine  Coasl Canada Employment Centre, the club is open lo all recipients of unemployment insurance,  income assistance and active  employment seekers who have  somehow failed in their quest.  "It's an active job search so  you don't wail for Ihe job to  come to you," said Carol Gregson, program manager at Ihe  Suncoast Vocational Training  Program in Sechell.  The Ihree-week program  begins at 9 p.m. Monday, (Jan.  17) at Ihe Seniors' Hall. Participants are led Ihrough step-by-  step instruction, starting with  determining exactly what kind of  position they are interested in  applying for.  "They have to come to us  with a clear idea of what job  they want," Gregson said.  From ihere, the strategy team  of trained job search specialists  attempts to design a resume  around the clients' job needs,  and prepares covering letters  valuable in the mail-out or presentation to employers.  Once lhat is completed, the  potential employees are taught  how lo markei themselves effectively for the position they have  targeted.  Clients are encouraged to  make call-backs to employers  and lo prepare a script detailing  essential information for their  personal presentation.  Gregson said Ihe script is an  important asset in preparing  clients for handling short nolice  call-backs from potential  employers.  The club also offers the benefit of networking with other participants and keeping the job  search momentum up.  The club operated last January and February and has  assisted in placing more lhan 80  per cent of its participants.  A two-day session is also  offered for job seekers interested  in finding out more about the  makeup of the three-week session.

That's how Acoustic Gumbool Hoik Sociely  member Lee Mason describes Ani DiFranco, scheduled to play Ihe Gumboot's first concert of 1994 at  Roberts Creek Hall Jan. 24.  A rising force on Ihe music scene, DiFranco is  considered one of Ihe brightest and most energetic  performers on Ihe contemporary folk scene.  Oumbooler Gordon Webber describes DiFranco,  23, as a talented protest singer of the '90s.  Originally from New York Cily, DiFranco's  lyrics expose hidden thoughts and feelings with  uncompromising confrontation of racism, discrimi  nation, oppression, sexual orientations and politics.  "Her in-your-face performance style consistently  captivates and charms any audience."  DiFranco has written and produced four albums  over her career, which began as a teenager in the  Big Apple.  Tickets for Ihe show are $ 13 and are available at  the Roberls Creek General Store, The Creek Hair  Salon, Scott's Music and Coast Books.  Webber says the tickets are selling quickly but if  there's any left before show time they will be available at the door, which opens at 7 p.m.  Food bank donations are being accepted at the  door.  Ani DiFranco  Raven's Cry theatre given new lease on life  by Darah Hansen  A new year and a new lease  has Sechelt's Raven's Cry Thealre up and running for ihe nexl  12 mouths.  The theatre's management  board, consisting of eight volunteer directors, signed a one-year  agreement mid-December to  lease the facility from the  Sechell Indian Band, the building's owners.  Board member Alan Robertson said band chief and council  agreed to rent the theatre space  at a cost of one dollar. The  agreement is subject to review  in 1995.  The board is optimistic for  future negotiations. "I'm hoping  we'll have a long lerm relationship wilh Ihe band," said  Robertson.  As part of the terms of Ihe  agreement, Ihe board has agreed  to promote cross-cultural events  as well as provide young artists  and performers on the coasl  with training opportunities, said  Robertson, it is further planning  a series of seminars and workshops hosted in part by local  professional artists.  Future plans for improvements to the interior of the theatre include the possible installment of modernized sound and  lighting systems, said Robert  son, lie added: extensive renovations or purchases are not  expected this year.  Meanwhile, Ihe board has  undertaken lo raise approximately half the estimated  $50,000 needed to operate the  theatre for the 1994 season.  Robertson said Ihe board will  be appealing lo both local and  provincial governments for  grant money. It is also promoting a variety of fund-raising  events including the sale of  membership cards and soliciting  private donations.  A donation of $10,000 from  the now defunct Gibsons Landing Theatre Project Society was  received by the board last year  and will be used as a cushioning  fund, said Robertson.  "We don't want lo break inlo  (it) if we don't have lo," he said.  The other 50 per cent of the  budget will be raised Ihrough  theatre stage rental. Robertson  said the theatre hopes to host at  leasl 75 shows over the year.  That figure is based on Ihe  amount of public interest shown  since the board first announced  its intentions last fall.  So far, the local arts council  has booked the theatre February  13 and March 13 to showcase  two more artists in their Countryside Concert series.

The doctor, who runs a private whale research station in  the remote post of Alert Bay,  B.C., suggests contacting Sea  World's owner, the multinational corporation Anheuser  Busch, with a short written message, complete wilh an  unopened can of Ihe company's  Budweiser beer. The message is  clear: "Corky, my last Bud."  Even better, Spong says,  crush the beer can and write:  "Bud's out 'til Corky's out."  Spong laughs when he talks  about this new phase of Ihe  Corky Projeci ��� a public campaign to send the 28-year-old  orca whale back to the waters  off the Sunshine Coast from  whence she was removed a  quarter of a century ago.  Spong runs briefly through a  list of tactics taken to date in the  project's three-year publicity  battle against Anheuser Busch.  Strategies include an array of  informal meetings with company executives; picketing outside  Sea World gates; advertising  their cause in the New York  Times; and starting up an international chain letter campaign  demanding the whale's release.  But Spong likes the latest  move best. He savours the words  of the campaign slogans with  tangible excitement, his soft  New Zealand accent lending a  quirky bent to each Budweiser  message.  Despite consistent defeat,  An Orca in the (iarden Bay holding pens circa 1968.  Spong is still optimistic about  swaying Corky's captors over to  his way of thinking. "If we can  get this rolling, I think il can be  effective," he says.  "I still feel that if Anheuser  Busch got involved in this (project), it could be very beneficial  just in terms of positive feedback from Ihe public."  He stops laughing and focuses again on Ihe campaign's ultimate objective: "Convincing the  Anheuser Busch people that it's  going to be better for them in the  long run and their business...to  cooperate with the release of  Corky than to continue fighting  us.  "Obviously we are not going  to get anywhere until we have  them on side with us," he says.  The energy in his voice is  surprising for a man whose fight  is almost certainly impossible to  win.  Officials at Sea World, taking  their orders from the top, have  rejected the ideals of the Corky  Project. They say Corky will  remain at the aquarium, that they  will not risk Corky's life on  what they view as a "risky  experiment."  But Spong doesn't think the  Corky Project is any more of a  risk to Corky's life than her  present existence at the aquarium.  "I'm sure they (Sea World  officials) don't expect Corky to  live very long...already she is the  oldest surviving captive orca,"  he says.  "According to their statements, they don't think orca live  long than 35 years," he says,  straying from the topic to discuss his own thoughts on that  particular subject. "There's no  question they're wrong. In the  wild they can live...up to 70  years."  Spong returns quickly to his  original argument. "In the wild,  Corky would still be a young  photo submitted  whale."  lie punches Ihe lasl sentence  with his frustration: "But  because of the captive situation,  she is almost certainly at Ihe end  of her life."  Spong says lhat he, in combination with other researchers at  the Alert Bay whale station, has  spent the last several years  working out the steps necessary  lo ensure Corky's safe transference back to the sea.  In 1990, he formally proposed Ihe details of the Corky  Project at a whale symposium in  Geneva.  Speaking to Ihe plan now,  Spong is filled with certain confidence. It's as though he's  anticipating an argument.  "It has to be done very carefully," he begins. "We won't  just dump her in the ocean."  What the Corky Project proposes is that a "halfway house"  be built for the whale upon her  release to the B.C. coast. The  ideal location would be Black-  fish Sound, near where her  familial pod still resides.  The entrance to the sound  would be blocked wilh log  booms and nets to enclose the  space.  Ironically, Spong says, the  pen will be remarkably similar  to thai built by Ihe Garden Bay  fishermen 25 years ago when  she was first captured.  Spong doesn't promise  Corky's instant adaptation lo her  natural habitat.  "She will still be a captive for  a period of a few monlhs."  During Ihis time, the whale  will undergo a stringent medical  examination, relearn survival  skills and generally familiarize  herself wilh Ihe vaslness of the  ocean.  Of primary importance,  Spong says, Corky will have to  be accepted back into her pod.  He predicts some interesting  interaction between Corky and  her family once she is discovered.  "Obviously we would watch  what would happen between her  and the other whales," he says.  By that, he means listening to  the sounds conveyed between  the whales and recording their  mutual behavior through the  netting.  "I'm pretty sure we'd get a  fairly good handle on whether  there would likely be acceptance  when she was released."  The plan rings scientifically  sound when Spong explains it,  even relatively simple to carry  out.  To date it remains an untried  theory as Sea World and other  aquaria rally a strong defence.  to be continued  AIR MILES ��� AIR MILES  STOP IN AT  SHELL  Lower Gibsons  FOR YOUR  FULL SERVICE  GAS AT  SELF SERVE  PRICES  AIR MILES ON:  ��� GAS  ���LUBE  ��� OIL  ��� REPAIRS  LIC.

Widely considered by guitar  and jazz buffs as one of the  brightest stars on the Canadian  and international music scene,  Ross, 33, will be playing a collection of songs culled from his  three albums, 'Kehewin,' an  independantly produced 1986  work, and two recordings produced on the Duke Street/Bearing Straight label, as well as  some new material.  Ross first came to international note in 1988 when he  placed first in the U.S. National  Guitar Championship in Win-  field. Kan.  Eight days after the prestigious victory, Ross was signed  by Duke Street Records. And  soon after that he was on stage  in Montreaux, Switzerland,  appearing in the world's most  well-known jazz festival.  Blessed with whal critics  have penned "a remarkable  sense of melody and rhythm,"  Don Ross  Ross has pushed his influences  into a latin-jazz flavour on his  last album, entitled Don Ross.  Another accolade following  Ross around comes thanks to his  hometown paper, the Montreal  Gazelle, which has called him  "Canada's best acoustic guitarist."

Rhythmic chanting wraps the crowd in safe,  fetal-like heart sounds, while  faint fingers of burning sweet-  grass tickle nostrils.  Shadow, light, and sounds  create a timeless aura of ceremony and mystery. Painted  people move through the throng  as veiled dancers, communing  only wilh the spirit world, uttering incomprehensible sounds.  They are the initiates, soon to  become spiritual leaders of Ihe  Red Cedar Circle.  These images are nol the  subject of vintage still  photographs taken from the  turn-of-the-century Kwakiutl  world of ethnographer Edward  Curtis. They are images of  today's tribal families sharing  the learning and traditional,  ceremonial, shamanistic rituals  of a religion as old as aboriginal  humankind. Although there is a  tangible feeling of oneness  among the crowd of 70 gathered  at Camp Douglas, most participants don't belong to any identifiable tribe or family.

A young boy holds an older  man's hand. Both are standing  on a blanket spread in Ihe centre  of a large, indoor circle.

Soon after, in gratitude,  Ihe centre blanket will be  heaped wilh gifts for everyone.  Singing and drumming continue  long into the afternoon. The gift  giving and the ceremony are  witnessed.  "This is a healing for the  whole community. What this  spirituality is, is family," witness Bill Hendry-Cole says.  There are sighs of agreement all  round. As the sun sets, Ihe new  initiates begin their spirit dancing.  Why do people come?

Healing  arts fair to  be held at  Rockwood  Consultation with local  experts confirmed that Ihe Jan.  29 date for Rockwood's 7th  Healing Arts Fair is very positive for exhibitors and all people  in attendance. During this time  the Moon is in Virgo which  brings healing.  The 1994 Healing Arts Fair  will bring together the usual  variety of experts on everything  from accupressure to Zen meditation. Coordinator Sandy  McBride hopes lo see the evenl  move beyond the awareness of  alternative healing practices and  remedies lo explore the preventive side of ihe healing aits.  "It is important lo focus on  prevention through healthy  choices in our day to day living,"  says McBride, "what we eat,  how we exercise and what we do  with our work and leisure times  are the first steps to taking control of our own healing."  The Healing Arts Fair will  run from 10 am to 4 pm on Saturday, Jan. 29 al the Rockwood  Centre in Sechelt. Space is available for booths and displays and  workshops.  A panel discussion related to  the theme will lake place during  Ihe day. The entire event is open  to the public for a $3 admission  fee. Healthy munchies will be  available on site.

Coast News, January 17,1994  17  sports  Golf courses greening in mild weather  by Ian Cobb  Sunshine Coasl golf course  operators are certain Mother  Nature is a golfing nut...even if  they're nol sure about her handicap.  It may seem strange for newcomers to the Coast to drive past  a golf course in January and see  a foursome leeing off or a duffer  eyeing a green wilh the aim of  conquering its roll ��� but it's a  common pari of life here, lhanks  to our tcmpcriile climate.  And local golfers are making  the most of Ihe quicler season  and reduced rales.  In fact, despite Ihe rain, on  Jan. 8 Ihe Sechell Golf and  Country Club ran whal ils operators hope will become an annual tournament.  A total of 64 golfers look pari  in Ihe Cold Duck Tourney (team  scramble), a tournament that  "focuses on strategy and team  play, and allows all levels of  golfers to play together and  enjoy themselves," said course  manager Dave Charlton.  Thanks lo the normal ploosh  of rain, some competitors suggested to Charlton that the name  of the tourney be changed to  "the drowned duck."  That name "has been taken  under consideration for next  year."  A total of $1,700 in prizes  were doled out during the tourney, with the team of Ken  Williams, Greg Kocher, Ken  Collard and Larry Nygard cap-  on the rocks  Keeping fit regardless of the rain, (this golfer) gets out and aboul  to practice his shots. Joel Johnstone photo  luring the Gross division, with a  combined score of 31 and Ihe  team of Freeman Reynolds,  Frank Harrison, Bob Rose and  Randy Page nabbing the Net  division with a score of 29.75.  The normal course of events  at the golf club continues with  golfers luckily still able to use  regular greens and tee-boxes,  said Charlton, adding that "business is great."  As for the concept of golfing  in January, he said, "I'm from  Ontario originally and it does  take some time to get used to."  Charlton said "play is up" at  the Sechelt course, with green  fees down for the winter season.  To play nine holes, it costs  $9 while a full 18-hole round  costs $15.  Even though the rain continues lo fall, il hasn'l slopped  golfers from taking lo Ihe greens  al Ihe other Iwo courses on Ihe  Coasl.  "It's been fine. The weather  lias been pretty fair and there's  been a lol of play by members  and green fee players," said  Sunshine Coasl Golf and Country Club board of directors treasurer Harry Johnson.  "We've been open all winter  and I would say it's better than  average." he said of the conditions and business.  The Sunshine Coasl course is  also using regular greens and  has had to ask golfers lo use  winter greens only a couple of  limes in November when frosl  dusled Ihe ground.  The winter rale at Ihe course  is $10 lo play nine holes.  Up the Coast at the Pender  Harbour Golf and Country Club,  business is also running smoothly and locals are taking to the  greens at a rate of aboul 25 a  day, said course manager Dave  West.  "We haven't closed yet this  year," he said.  And as is the norm with all  Ihree courses, Harbor golfers  can still use regular greens,  though they must tee off from  mats with the tee-boxes closed.  Currents rates at the Pender  Harbour Club are $11 for nine  holes and $17.50 for 18 holes.

VON SAO  by Harry Turner  Now lhat things have started  to roar again at the curling club,  il is time to remind you of a few  important dates coming up.  We have our mixed bonspiel  due to take place on Ihe weekend  of Jan. 21 to 23; the seniors have  an infrclub event taking place  with Powell River on Tuesday,  Jan. 25 and the Mill Constniclion  Spiel is scheduled for Jan. 29.  February also promises to be a  busy monlh.  I read a very interesting and  amusing book on curling this  holiday season.  It is called the Muck Bonspiel  of Willie MacCrimmon and I recommend it. The book is available at local bookstores.  I promised you some more on  the three guard rule this week, so  pay attention.  Because the first three rocks  cannot be removed if they are  placed in front of the house (not  in the rings) between the hog line  and the tee line a substantial  amount of what we used to call  garbage can accumulate. If they  cover the four foot, the come  around part of the game becomes  very important.  The second and third are not  affected too much by the new  rule, although they may be shooting through more garbage than  they are used lo.  A skip playing first rocks will  likely play the game much as  before with the first rock being  played in front of the rings and  covering the four foot. Where  previously the opposing skip  would likely try to peel that  stone, that is no longer an option.  However you may now play a  number of options, split the  guard without removing it, push  the front guard to the rear of the  house, put up a second guard on  the centre line or play a stone to  the corner in the house.  It's your option and you are  well advised lo consider carefully whal you do since it will determine how the rest of the end is  played and how many potential  stones will end up counting.  There are three basic questions lo ask: Are you at a point in  the game where it is essential for  you to score some stones? Are  you able to outshoot your opponent? Are you better off going on  the defensive? The more rocks to  the centre, the more offense will  be generated.  The more rocks to the side,  the more you have a chance to  set up a defense and the more  you create options like a roll to  the centre behind the guards.  Teams who like to hit will of  course, start hitting immediately  once the third stone has been  thrown.  Skips will need to be able to  throw the delicate stone much  more so than in the recent past,  since there will be many more  guards set up on the centie line in  Ihe course of a game.

II look a last-minute drive by  Aldergrove to beat Ihe Cougars  54-50 Jan. 12 at Elphinstone.  "ll was a really exciting  game," said coach Lawrence  Sloochnoff.  The Cougars opened strong  and gained an early lead but  Aldergrove battled back in the  second quarter and scrambled to  a 12-point lead.  'This team has got a  lot of potential'  -lawrence Stoocbnqff  After a half-time rest, Ihe  Cougars came out strong in the  third and clawed back lo within  five points.  Aldergrove calmed the pace  down bul as the fourth quarter  progressed, the home team  pressed and evened the score.  With three minules left the  Cougars took a four-point lead  but Aldergrove rallied and  nipped the Cougars at the  buzzer.  Undaunted, Sloochnoff said  the girls are heading across the  Strait nexl week to lake Alder-  gove on again.  "We're going back to beat  them this time."  "This team has got a lot of  potential.

One motor vehicle accident  was reported during that period  as alcohol-related.  Blair said the number of  impaired drivers charged in the  counterattack is "reasonable" for  the time of year.
