Don Anderson pholo  by Don Anderson  (part two in a series)  When Middle Point resident  Michael Mclnerney was told he  had the Human Immuno-deficien-  cy Virus (HIV) his doctor broke  down in tears.  "His reaction when he told me  is that he started crying which  didn't help me any," says Mclnerney.  "But that's beside the point."  Mclnerney was diagnosed  with HIV in 1987 in Vancouver,  three months after moving to the  Sunshine Coast from Burnaby.  He caught it through unprotected  sex.  For the first two years, the former art teacher stayed at home  and tried to deal with it the best  way he could. That usually  involved reassessing what it  would mean to die from the disease, finding out as much as he  could about the virus and gradually improving his diet and outlook  on life.  But acceptance was not as  easy as it sounds.  "You have to do some real  thinking, or at least I had to do  some real thinking about deam  and what I wanted to do with my  Support system  for newly  infected deemed  essential  life," he says.  Mclnerney is a squat man of  43. He doesn't look any different  from anybody else who lives on  the Coast, although there is a  slight resemblance to Farley  Mowatt.  He shares eight acres of property with his partner of 15 years,  Orvis Aldrich, just off Highway  101 south of Madeira Parte. Their  home is a veritable zoo; 25 geese  and ducks of varying sizes and  breeds honk and squawk as they  wander in the courtyard between  a maze of chicken wire and man-  made ponds.  Ruby, a two-year old lab cross,  can be found chasing one of  Mclnerney's two cats while  mammoth domestic rabbits chew  on straw in their hutches.  It's like stepping into the  world of Dr. Doolitde.  "We have the distinction of  being the neighbors of Joni  Mitchell," Mclnerney says, with  obvious cheer.  He was initially wary of talking with the media about his  infection, but eventually figured  not much more harm could come  to him.  For the past seven years he has  fought the social stigma of having  the disease, once known as the  "gay plague" and "gay cancer."  "I'm a gay man, I'll tell you  that up front," Mclnerney says,  before settling into his Afghan-  covered armchair to talk about  being HIV positive.  "I feel like I'm at war, because  of the HIV and partly because of  the social implications of having  AIDS and the attitudes of society  toward me.  "Not only do I have to look  after myself, but there is all this  other stuff that has. to be dealt  with on top of it"  By talking about it, he hopes  people will understand this is a  virus that does not pick favorites,  and that a program of support for  people with AIDS (PWAs) and  HIV is essential on Ihe Coast  turn to page 2  Coast detox gets praise, seeks advice from 'experts'  by Darah Hansen  The only detoxification program in town for substance  abusers has turned to the experts  to learn how best to provide limited services to a steady list of  consumers.  Medical staff at Sl. Mary's  Hospital, including hospital  chief of staff Dr. Rob Lehman  and nursing director Wendy  Hunt took notes from recovering  drug and alcohol dependents at a  meeting held Tuesday (March  29) in Sechelt.  Three members representing  Ihe Sunshine Coast branches of  the Alcoholics and Narcotics  Anonymous groups gave their  first-hand advice on which  detox programs work and which  don't for substance abusers.  The men ��� who asked not to  be named ��� called the program  currently offered by the hospital  a much needed service on the  Coasl.  "This is first aid for the  drunk. It's a good place to come  into," one man said.  Bul, he added, program officials shouldn't be fooled; a  hard-core abuser would call <  what St Mary's offers a "joke."  With the flexibility and relative  freedom of the program, "you  couldn't handle (a hard-core  addict) in your hospital... He'd  leave."  But it's a good place for an  abuser to start if he or she is  serious about kicking the habit,  they agreed.  The men, who now work  with those trying to clean up  their act, said the number of  substance abusers on the Coast  is "shocking" ��� they believe  there are more abusers per capi  ta here than in any urban centre.  The detox program at St.  Mary's officially got off the  ground last year when medical  ;l4ff decided to consolidate all  information and services previously offered by the hospital on  an individual basis, said program organizer Wendy Hunt.  The program works within  the hospital's current budgetary  constraints and offers two beds  to those interested in seeking  help to end substance abuse.  It is a voluntary admission  service, Hunt said. No one is  forced to enter or stay.  Patients are sent to the hospital on a doctor's referral. They  are asked to be substance-free  for at leasl 24 hours prior to  entering the program and to  remain so during the length of  their stay.  It is not a detox unit, Hunt  stressed. The hospital program  provides a lesser degree of support than detox units or treatment centers on the Lower  Mainland.  It is, however, the only detox  service on the Sunshine Coast.  Also present at Tuesday's  meeting were representatives  from several other drug and  alcohol support groups on the  coast ��� the Psychiatric Day  Hospital, Women's Transition  House, Port Mellon Men's  Recovery House and ihe Native  Alcohol and Drug Program.  Group members suggested  several improvements to the  existing hospital program,  including expanding services to  adolescents and providing a  more flexible admission service  for emergency withdrawals.  Local detox program medically supported  The detox program available  at St. Maiy's Hospital in Sechelt  is a voluntary admission service  for people who seek help to end  their alcohol and drug addictions.  While in the hospital, patients  are provided with standardized  medical and nursing care for  their withdrawal symptoms.  They are further given educational opportunities to learn  about their problems as well as  an introduction to community  resource and support groups.  Patients are asked to be alcohol and/or drug free 24 hours  prior to their admission into the  program.  However, some flexibility  will be given to those who enter  on an emergency basis and are  considered sincere in their appeal  for help.  Patients using the program  must be referred by a doctor.  They will see a doctor daily.  The length of stay depends on  several different factors, including age, size and physical condition. The usual length of stay is  seven days.  Patients are allowed only  three admissions into the detox  program within a 12-month period. Once discharged, there is a  30 day service limitation before  that patient may be considered  for re-admission.  People seeking help or sup  port within the Coast community  for their addictions are encouraged to contact:  ��� Action: Alcohol and Drug  Counselling (885-5680);  ��� Port Mellon Men's Recovery House (884-0099);  ��� Native Alcohol and Drug  Program (885-9404).  Other support services available include Alcohol or Narcotics Anonymous, Women's  Transition House and Al-Anon.  Maritime History Society  preparing to launch centre  by Ian Cobb  The Sunshine Coasl Maritime History Society is ready lo  sel sail.  Wilh a growing membership,  a newly released newsletter,  events planned and a busy summer season yawning before  Ihem, society members are  eagerly awaiting the April 9  grand opening of their Maritime  History Centre.  Located in "a bomb-proof  bunker" on Molly's Lane (as  their newsletter [Vol. I No. 1]  describes it), the centre has been  open for several months and  more and more people are coming through every monlh, said  society vice-president Lilian  Kunstler.  "We've had more than 365  people through this month and  it's been increasing every month  for the pasl two months," she  said.  The history centre, usually  open during business hours recognized by other merchants on  Molly's Lane, is also getting  mqre items for display, from  local collections or from ihe  Vancouver Maritime Museum.  "We've had a wonderful  week this week. Stuff has been  coming in like crazy," Kunstler  said.  'It's exciting. Things  are happening a lot  quicker than we  expected'  ���Lilian Kunstler  A quick scan around the  room confirms that. There's a  port-hole, the ship's bell off Ihe  Cardena, an old steamer, a single-candle signal light, a log  book from a sailor who plied the  waters around ihe globe in  1904, various models and paintings of ships and steamers, a life  ring, signal flags, charts and  maps, as well as maritime-  flavoured items for sale.  Receiving strong play on the  back wall is a replica of the  ship's wheel from the HMS Discovery.  "The wood is out of the  Queen's forest," Kunstler said.  As she guides the Coasl  News around the centre, a couple from Nanaimo trundle in  and amble about, bending over  lo peer at items that once served  an important purpose and now  serve as a reminder of what life  was once like on the West  Coast.  As Kunstler and sociely president John De Kleer greet the  visitors, Kunstler notes that the  centre has hosled people from  all over the world. Recently,  visitors from locations such as  Japan, Australia, Holland and  Mauritius have signed the log  book at Ihe entrance to the centre.  Always seeking new items  for display and volunteers to  spend a few hours at the centre,  the society newsletter asks,  "When was the lasl lime you  met someone from Mauritius?"  "We're always looking for  more volunteers," Kunstler said.  "It's exciting. Things are  happening a lot quicker than we  expected," she said.

If a person could reach out and  help a little bit, I think thai is  great," he says.  "I don't really see that happening much on the Coast."  Mclnerney first heard about  the disease in 1979, at a time  when he was making the choice  lo lead a homosexual lifestyle.  Although he had read about the  disease for many years, nothing  could prepare him for the news  he would receive in 1987.  At first, he was "severely  depressed" about the infection,  but with Ihe help of his friend,  Rick, who had advanced AIDS,  he joined AIDS Vancouver's  Buddy Program. The program  was one of the first established in  Canada to provide one-on-one  emotional support for persons  with HIV and AIDS who need a  friend to turn to.  "I wasn't totally alone but  certainly it would have been a lot  better had there been a support  group on the Coast," Mclnerney  says.  That has changed somewhat;  Mclnerney now belongs to a  small, informal group of HIV  positive persons who meet on a  regular basis to discuss treatments, exchange information and  share experiences.  "All of us have been positive  for some time and have tried different things, and have gone  through the initial 'shit hit the  fan' experience of it all," he says.  To protect his fragile immune  system and ease stress, Mclnerney uses alternative therapies,  including traditional Chinese  acupuncture, visualization and  self-hypnosis, while paying close  attention to his diet.  "Your health becomes your  career," he says.  Today, Mclnerney appears to  have accepted being HIV positive. Granted, he is taking life a  lot slower now than when he was  unaware of his infection, but at  least he is alive.  "We all die and it's a matter  of time. Whether you have two  minutes or 20 years is immaterial, really. We don't think of that  but it's how you spend that two  minules or 20 years that counts,"  he says.

VON 3A0  by Don Anderson  Retired Sunshine Coast resident Vic Anderson is a real  buddy.  The 71-year-old retired  accountant is one of two AIDS  Vancouver's representatives on  the Coast and a volunteer in its  Buddy Program, a one-on-one  support plan for people diagnosed with the Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) and  Acquired Immuno-Deficiency  Syndrome (AIDS).  People who have tested positive for the virus can call up  AIDS Vancouver which will then  match them with a volunteer in  their communily. That person  will then spend at least four  hours a week with that Buddy.  For Anderson, being a Buddy  can be a real challenge.  "You can Uy and put yourself  in their shoes but unless you have  Ihe virus yourself you can't  understand it," he said during an  interview at his waterfront home  near Wilson Creek.  Anderson has been a Buddy to  as many as five people at one  time since he joined the program  three years ago.  (The Coast's other resident  Buddy is Paris Crampton.)  "I never thought I would  know anyone who had AIDS or  HIV," he said. "There are a lot on  the Coast. They say there's more  than 50 here; I would say there's  probably more."  For the most part, a Buddy is  there to provide assistance wherever needed, including shopping  for groceries, doing housework  and lending an ear or shoulder  for support.  "When you come down with  this disease you believe your  whole life is over," Anderson  explains. "A lot of them go  through terrible depression when  they find out."  People living with HIV who  live the longest are those who  take care of themselves by maintaining a healthy outlook and  nutritional diet, he added.  Unfortunately, public pressure  and lack of understanding about  the disease often forces people  who are positive to live sheltered  lives, which only further exacerbates the frail immune system.  Most people, Anderson said,  tend to take a "it's never going to  liappen to me" attitude, which he  believes is a sense of false securi  One of Ihe most serious problems on the Coast is the number  of people sharing needles to do  hard drugs such as cocaine and  heroin.  Anderson has been involved  with the Port Mellon Men's  Recovery House and has been a  Buddy to several recovering drug  addicts with HIV. "They are all  so young," he said.  To date, Anderson has seen  four of his buddies die of AIDS.  It's something that he would not  like to get used to.  "When you sit there day after  day wilh them going downhill  and knowing they are going lo  die, you get quite depressed  yourself," he said.  "But you have to accept il.

A valuable source for information and counselling is the  Pacific AIDS Research Centre  (PARC) on the corner of Seymour and Helmcken in downtown Vancouver.  The centre is home to the BC  People With Aids Society  (PWA), AIDS Vancouver, Block  AIDS Network and Positive  Women's Netwoik (PWN).  The centre offers every type  of information available about  HIV and AIDS, including safe  sex guidelines, counselling, treatment and nutrition programs.  "We try to do as much as we  can around here," said Dana  Kossen, a member of the society,  active volunteer and person living with AIDS and HIV. "Every  bit of information that is out  there we try to get our hands on."  Services include a food bank  for members of the society, peer  counselling and regular Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics  Anonymous meetings geared  specifically toward people living  with AIDS and HIV.  The centre will also assist  people in need of affordable  housing or legal support.  Unfortunately, where there is  talk about the AIDS virus, there  is usually discrimination, Kossen  said.  To combat this problem, the  society offers a list of physicians  willing to handle AIDS and HIV  cases in the event that an infected  person receives a negative  response from a physician not  wanting to handle the case.  ''I get calls from people who  have tried to find a physician and  have gotten negative response,"  said Kossen.  "It hits everybody different so  you must be your own doctor."  Kossen has knowingly lived  with the HIV virus for five years,  having contracted it through  intravenous cocaine use and  unsafe sex. A recovering alcoholic and drug addict, Kossen  now lives a more careful  lifestyle, with improved nutrition, stress reduction and positive  thinking. "Although we don't  have a cure for the virus, we've  come a long way with various  therapies for the opportunistic  infections," he said.  Working with PWA, he has  discovered that most people  aren't aware of how many people  actually have the virus. Tlie number is underestimated, he said.  "Il used lo be only something  you heard on the news; it was an  'Oprah' thing. Now it has  become sort of a personal thing  in that a lot of people know  The Palliative Care Unit at St Mary's Hospital. Joel Johnstone pholo  someone with it," Kossen said.  "It's starling to hit home a lot  more." The main centre for  research and treatment in Canada  is Ihe BC Centre for Excellence  in HIV/AIDS research at St.  Paul's Hospital in downtown  Vancouver.  Here, people living with  AIDS and HIV are treated with a  number of drags, including AZT  and DCC3. Although the drugs  have managed to slow the progression of AIDS symptoms,  physicians and biologists have  been critical of the side effects  brought on by their use.  Nevertheless, research at the  hospital continues into treatment  of the disease and virus, and  patients continue lo flock to the  facility in growing numbers  every year.  On Monday, federal heallh  minister Diane Marleau  announced Health Canada will  contribute $1 million over three  years to the organizing committee of the XI International Conference on AIDS to be held in  Vancouver in 1996.  In the first year, the funds will  used to establish 500 scholarships providing free registration  to the conference to Canadians  living with HIV and AIDS.  |j.

How are you going to be  affected hy thai?"  ���Vic Anderson, AIDS Vancouver representative and retired  Sunshine Coast resident  It was one of the most brutally honest questions I faced in Ihe  days following my own test for  HIV at the Coast-Garibaldi  Health U.iit in Gibsons.  When I first considered taking  the lest, it was lo present a more  palpable account of Ihe procedure. Instead of interviewing  health nurse Johanna Rzepa over  the phone about the procedure, I  would offer my arm and blood  for a first-hand account of HIV  testing on the Coasl.  To my disappointment. I  would receive no danger pay  from the newspaper.  The lest is fairly simple.

The categories include intravenous drug user, homosexual,  bi-sexual, blood transfusion and  unprotected sex.  "Anyone who is concerned  about high-risk behaviour, we  feel il is a real positive step lo do  the test," Rzepa said reassuringly, as we reviewed the three-page  questionnaire together.  While Ihe test is simple, it's  the stress leading up lo and following ihe extraction of blood  lhal is most exhausting.  "The wailing period can cause  anxiety for some people," said  Rzepa, just before she drew a  vial full of blood from my left  arm.  She wasn't kidding.  For the most part, I felt fairly  relaxed in the first few hours  afler seeing my blood sealed in a  metal lube and prepared for shipment lo Vancouver. But by the  lime 1 sal down lo talk with Vic  Anderson (no relation), 52 hours  after taking Ihe test, I had  become extremely irritable, nervous and mildly distraught.  A lot of "whal ifs" stilted in  my mind. If I was positive, how  would my family and friends  react? Would I still have a job to  go to in the morning? How  would I deal with discrimination  against HIV carriers?  Did I have a support network  of my own?  Not knowing whether I was a  carrier of this dreadful virus was  getting lo me, and I began thinking I should never have gone for  the test, that il was a horrendous  mistake on my part.  On Friday, March 25.1 contacted Rzepa who promptly told  me the test had proved negative.  I was not HIV positive.  At first, my synapses failed lo  register the news and I asked her  lo repeal what she had just said.  Within five minules of hanging up the phone I was feeling  complete relief and began gloating about my "cleanness" around  Ihe office.  Suddenly a great weighl of  potential despair and fear of the  unknown was lifted.  The feeling lasted about 10  minutes before a less existential  thought registered:  I may be "clean," but what  aboul Ihose who aren't? Coast News, April 4, 1994  news  ^n^  Sunshine Coast Arts Counul  Sunshine Coast Arts Centre  Trail & Medusa, Sechelt  Alan Kristmanson talks to (irade 9 studenls at Elphinstone Secondary School.  Hoopster passes pointers  along to Elphie students  Ian Cobb photo  by Ian Cobb  Esteem was Ihe theme coming from a guy who played  against the Dream Team.  Grade 8 and 9 students at  Elphinstone Secondary School  heard a few important life messages March 29 when former  Canadian National Basketball  team member Alan Kristmanson  towered into town as part of The  Esteem Team.  Formed in late January, the  Esteem Team is a group of about  30-40 "who's who" from BC  involved, or formerly involved,  in amateur and professional  sports who lour Ihe province  speaking to studenls.  When Kristmanson made his  crisp, to-the-point talk, it was  about the 400th presentation  made by the group, which also  includes athletes such as former  national ski team members Felix  Belczyk and Michelle Hendry,  soccer player Paul Dolan and  |basketballer,JayJrian(^^ys.v;:.,,l  I "The main thing ja��U-&SA  learn from it is Ihe things we did  Iwrong," Kristmanson lOld'the  students about his talk.  He spoke about four things  people can do lo better themselves and feel good about themselves.  "The first thing you have to  do is dream of great things," he  said, adding, it may sound silly,  but dreams provide an impetus to  continue striving.  The second important "thing"  is to set goals, Kristmanson said.  He relayed a story about  when was a basketball star in  high school and thought he was  hot stuff when he went to univer  sity.  "When I got to university I  thought I was pretty good, but I  set no goals for myself. Thus I  didn't improve as a basketball  player and I became a lousy student."  As a result, he dropped out of  school and traveled to New  Zealand where he played professional basketball for a year.  "You can never be  satisfied with how  good you are'  -Alan Kristmanson  When he returned, he set  goals for himself, such as "just  getting a tryout with the national  team."  With lhat, Kristmanson  moved onto his third point.  "You can never be satisfied  with how good you are," he said,  sliding into a vignette about  watching players on the US 1992'  Dream Team basketball squad  working out in Portland prior to  the Barcelona Olympics.  "After the players walked off  the court (after practice),  Michael Jordan and Larry Bird  came back" and continued working out.  "Here's a guy (Jordan) who is  the best who ever played asking  a coach, 'How's my footwork?'"  The reason for that, Kristmanson said, was that Jordan was  always afraid of not being the  best.  "There's always people better  than you are. Never be satisfied  wilh how you're doing," he said.  noting that Jordan retired from  professional basketball because  he had reached his goals and his  skill level peaked.  "He had no desire to come  into the gym to improve himself."  The fourth and final point  made by Kristmanson was the  one "that is by far the hardest.  You have to believe in yourself.  If someone would have told me  in Ladner (where he grew up)  that I would be playing in the  Olympics, I would have said  they were nuts."  A big problem with society  and one that hits kids entering  their teens is negativism, he told  the students.  "There's so many negative  people around," he said ���  coaches who tell kids they're too  small or too slow to play a sport  or adults who tell kids they're  "too dumb" to become a doctor  or lawyer. "And it's not going to  stop when you leave here."  As an example of how people  uy lo beat you down with negativism, Kristmanson related how  the Vancouver Sun reported that  the only reason he made Ihe  Olympic team was because more  players from Ihe West Coasl  were needed on the roster,  "You've got to listen to the  person that talks to you the most  ���yourself," he said.  Kristmanson, now a Whistler  resident, also told the studenls  that "just because you're from  Gibsons," doesn't mean you  can't reach for the stars.  By setting high goals and  working hard to reach Ihose  goals, you may nol reach that  exact goal ��� but you will push  higher than if you set no goals.  District budget will hit taxpayers  by Darah Hansen  Taxpayers in the Sunshine  Coast Regional District (SCRD)  will be expected to dig a little  deeper this year to cover the  increased costs in Ihe 1994 bud-  gel  The budget, passed unanimously last Thursday (March  31) by SCRD directors, is up  aboul $1 million from lasl year,  wilh expenditures totalling just  under $8 million.  Lasl year's expenditures  totalled $6,283,125.  Before passing, approximately $180,000 was shaved off this  year's budget.  Regional district directors  agreed to a variety of cost-cutting measures, including implementing a hiring freeze at the  government office, at leasl until  the completion of a staff study.  Roberts Creek director Brett  McGillivray said the study is  scheduled to begin in late April  and is expected to take at least  two months lo complete.  The aim of the $25,000 study  is to sort out where the office  can become more efficient in its  staffing and resources.  The temporary hiring freeze  immediately effects two positions ��� in the mapping and  planning departments ��� that  were being considered for posting. It's estimated the freeze  will save the district approximately $75,000.  Directors further agreed to a  significant cut in the area of  solid waste disposal.  McGillivray said hardest hit  was Ihe recycling department  wilh an estimated $47,000  reduction in funding.  He added that, despite the  cuts, the funding allocated lo  solid waste disposal is still up in  all departments from last year.  The Economic Development  Commission was also hit with a  $10,000 reduction.  At a regional district board  meeting in mid-March, directors  had turned thumbs down on the  1994 budget, saying the increase  in expenditures was too rich for  their constituents to swallow.  Bul McGillivray said Ihis  week it was difficult to reduce  costs due to "a number of new  things happening" this year,  among them the Gibsons swimming pool, library construction  and the formation of a recreation commission.  The final budget numbers are  expected to be available Ihis  week.  Expect ferry rates to rise in April  , Thanks to a $5.5-million cutback in subsidies to the BC  Ferry Corporation (BCFC) in  the upcoming year, ferry users  can expect an increase in fares  in about a month's time.  With the cuts in subsidies,  BC Ferry's annual subsidy  dropped from $41.7- million to  $36.2-million.  "Obviously, it will figure in  when we're reviewing our tariffs (for the upcoming fiscal  year)," said corporation public  affairs manager Ed McKenzie.  Now that provincial finance  minister Elizabeth Cull has  released her budget (March 22),  the ferry corporation is working  on its budget.  While the subsidy chop will  impact on the operating costs, it  won't affect capital projects like  the Langdale Ferry Terminal,  McKenzie said.  As for when BCFC will jack  up their tariffs, thai remains to  be seen, McKenzie said.  "We're in the process of  finalizing our upcoming budget," he said. "Beyond soon ��� I  can't say."  McKenzie said BCFC traditionally tries to make its tariff  announcements in lale April.  This is Ihe third straight year  in which the corporation has  been hit by subsidy reductions.  ll has become a factor over  which the corporation has no  control, McKenzie said.  "We jusl accept Ihe budget."  activity centre  -^      thru April...      l  >   All strength training  memberships  "2 for I "  'r'Join with a friend!

Coast News, April 4, 1994  opinion  Has Trail Bay Park  been fully  explored?  It is understandable that Sechelt council feels some pressure for development that will provide the town with a tax  base. However, council might be wise lo consider if Ihere is  a way that the Trail Bay area, now targeted for a  residential/commercial development, could be developed  into the kind of park proposed by the Trail Bay Park Society.  We are not advocating that this be done by spending great  amounts of public money at a lime when government  restraint is the order of the day (although the park might end  up a worthwhile investment for the town's yet to be fully  developed tourism industry).  No, what we are wondering is if all alternate methods of  financing and maintaining such a park have been fully  explored.  Are there other ways than using local taxes to raise money  to acquire the land, or could a land swap be worked out with  developer Jeffrey Tong in a way that we might come out  with a win-win-win situation ��� for the town, the developer  and those who would visit and use the park, now and in the  future?  Can the park, as proposed by the Society, end up being a  source of revenue for the town over the long haul? Has that  been fully explored? If the advocates of the park can make a  convincing case that the park will make a substantial financial contribution to the community, then council should heed  the voices that are being raised in support of the park idea.  Let's be clear on this. We're not suggesting that council  tuif developer Jeffrey Tong's proposal for the property.  However, council should give the park idea a very serious  second look before committing completely to the development.  Society running out  of self-esteem  We are living in strange times.  Our society is in such a state that we have to give our  children classes in self-esteem ��� teach them to value themselves.  It's good that the schools are reaching out to students with  sessions like the one conducted last week by former Canadian National Basketball team member Alan Kristmanson at  Elphiqstqy e^gconj)ary ^hooi,    ..��� ..,,,.,.  That this is necessary points up a strange deficiency in the  society we httve created. Our children do not believe in  themselves because they cannot believe in the society of  which they are a part.  Too many of what in the past were considered eternal verities are no longer eternal or true. The family, one of the  most stable institutions of the past, has undergone cataclysmic change, and as a child, one cannot be assured of  security there.  The labour market, one of the sources of parental stability  in the past, has gone the same way with recessions, sweeping technological changes, cutbacks, layoffs...  TV and movies have given us and our children 'heroes'  who solve all problems with machine-gun violence. Accept  them as role models and you'll be doing drive-by shootings.  Reject them and you have...a void. Where does a child  today fit in all this?  The children have answered this in the way they feel  about themselves ��� like 'nowhere' children.  We need more people helping our children find their way.  Ul) im)   gjRps mm  TOM- **-  W  v  fBomwSTRea  ��BH��esr.  msuttWUKw  mMw...  Hunting for other  art  Re: H.W. Hamilton, Art  should pay its way  Much of what we see in the  galleries you have mentioned in  your letter falls into the category  of commercial art. Commercial  art is the reflection of the world  already accepted, therefore easily sold.  Alternative views, however,  which attempt to find new and  greater meaning, are often difficult for the market place to  accept. Artists need a forum and  distance from the influence of  the market place so that alternative uncensored views may be  more easily expressed.  When this happens, it is not  only the voice of the artist that  sounds, but also the voice of a  human need, which if ignored, is  a danger to us all.  Government funding can help  provide for this and we hope the  -Quay Works fallacy will pro-  . vide such a forum. -  TOM * DIANE HUNT,  artists  Halfmoon Bay  Taking sides with  SPCA  It saddens me to read a lot of  SPCA bashing in the papers  these days.  Volunteers and staff at our  SPCA work untiringly against  the odds to rescue unwanted animals from abusive situations and  arbitrary euthanasia (which  would have to be their fate was  there no SPCA here) as well as  teaching Ihe public to neuter  their pets so there wouldn't be  the volume of beings in the shelter.  They have placed hundreds  of pets into happy home situations with very little support or  praise publicly. Yet at every turn  it seems they are publicly criticized, vilified, misquoted and  slandered.  In essence they run an animal  orphanage for our seemingly  disposable pets.  In my opinion they do a fabulous job of finding homes for as  many animals as possible and as  few euthanised as possible. This  does not mean that they do not  assess each animal carefully nor  disregard historical data in the  infrequent times that it is available.  Potential owners are screened  thoroughly also.  The sad incident with Petunia  was a very rare and regrettable  incident with the owner taking  full responsibility, even to paying the vet bills. These types of  incidents happen much more  frequently outside of the SPCA.  I know thai Shelter Manager  Clint Davy and his team work  very hard to prevent such occurrences without arbitrarily  euthanising an animal on  hearsay. All animals at the shelter get the second chance the  prior owners never gave them.  I find it even more regrettable  that much of the criticism is  coming from two of the kennel  owners on the coast. Kennel  owners see people who care  about and take responsibility for  their pets and thus the animals  they bdard are generally happy,  secure ones.  That is like apples and  oranges and I hardly ihink that  gives them the right lo stand in  judgement of a situation about  which they know little from personal experience.  One of these critiques made  mention of our tax dollars spent  on the SPCA.

ANNA WEYBURG  Roberts Creek  Putting the animals  down  Unfortunately, Clint Davy  has forced me to respond to his  allegation that "I put down any  of my dogs which show the  slightest sign of aggression." I  have never made this statement  (or anything that could be construed as such) to any person, at  any time. It is not my belief nor  have I practiced such a policy.. ..  Hoover, I have twice had lo  make that awful, emotional and  responsible decision to 'euthanize' a dog I have owned,  because it bit someone and I  believed it would probably bite  again.  In the one instance, the dog  was euthanized with the breeder's knowledge and endorsement  (I had kept her informed of the  problems I was having.)  Rather than trying to discredit me and question my integrity,  I suggest you put your efforts  towards developing a responsible and realistic euthanasia policy.  GORDON POLLOCK  Gibsons  Does democracy have this dangerous Achilles heel?  "Jobs before conservation," Mike Harcourt  thundered to frenzied applause at the New Democratic Party convention just past Ah, yes, Mikey  boy, give those trees and tree huggers hell. Heartwarming, so it is, to see a leader with such passionate conviction, such deep-rooted, far-seeing sense  of what it takes to win one more election.  We noted the other day, did we not, that to be  elected in this right-wing province you had to  either be right wing or pretend to be. Harcourt is  now giving us his version of The Great Pretender.  Let us waste no time here in concerning ourselves with the next election. There are surely  enough vote-hungry politicians eager to compromise every and any issue as long as they are seated  near the levers of power when next the will of the  people is consulted.  The sad thing about the Harcourt performance is  that in seeing the choice as jobs or conservation the  leader of the province has accepted the arguments  so skilfully put forward by the public relations  departments of the corporations. It is not a choice  between jobs and conservation. It never has been.  When the premier courts the favour of the powerful but misguided woods union by seeming to  accept the debate as between working men and  their families and environmentalists who care more  about trees than about people, he succumbs to pressures which, if we do not reverse ourselves, will  bring democratic government to a place where it  musings  will pander only to the lowest common denominator.  All of our decisions will be framed by the short-  term desire of the politician to hold power and  enjoy its fruits and the short-term desire of the  electorate to have immediate gratification; it is in  this direction thai we are now heading.  Let's uy to say a few salient things about jobs in  the woods, forests, and the future of democratic  government. It's the kind of task a politician of  stature, a premier of true dimension might set himself or herself instead of joining the mindless clamour of the moment in pursuit of popularity.  Jobs have been disappearing rapidly from the  forests of the northwest for most of the last half  century, certainly long before there was an environmental movement First the giant forest companies, in cahoots with corrupt governments, wrested  control of crown lands away from the original  small-scale loggers. There was a great displace-  John burnside  ment of working loggers at that time.  As the years went by, the forest giants ��� the  ones that slew not the ones that grew ��� accelerated the process by automating as much of the woods  work as they possibly could. In the 1980s throughout the northwest more trees fell than ever before  and fewer people were employed than ever before.  Now the same forest corporations which have  bought governments for half a century and exploited public lands to their own enormous benefit all  the while using less and less labour for the task, are  posing as the defenders of jobs in the woods and  BC's premier is going along with the pretence.  As for the environmentalists, it is true too many  of them are obnoxious in their rectitude and  removed lifelong from any possibility of economic  suffering themselves. It is true they too often wear  their self-congratulation like a visible badge of  honour.  But the issue is larger than them, too. There is a  worldwide deforestation taking place in all the continents of the world. The new economic order is  creating millions of more poor people and poor  people are not much interested in the long term if  they are cold and hungry tonight We are creating  on a global scale deserts where forests grew and  this is a fact which has implications long-term for  all life on earth.  If we go on at the present rate, there will be no  jobs at all in the woods in another generation, lt is  not Jobs or Conservation. It is Conservation for  Jobs ��� and much more besides, like breathable air.  Harcourt must surely understand this, but his  need for re-election is paramount.  We looked at a parallel case not long ago. For  decades scientists and civil servants warned the  politicians in St. John's, Newfoundland and in  Ottawa that fish stocks were being depleted on the  Grand Banks. No politician dared to do anything to  protect them for fear of offending the fishermen.  The fishermen fished on. The fish disappeared.  Today you're not allowed to catch a cod for the  table in much of Newfoundland. That's the kind of  thing lhat happens when politicians pander to the  lowest common denominator, to immediate gratification and popularity, rather than long term well-  being.  Is this the Achilles heel of democracy? Can the  process be reversed? Is education of the electorate  possible in the age of the IS-second sound bile?

Coast News, April 4, 1994  opinion  Of summer, tourists, and Loch Nessie  This year the North American summer tourists looking  ever for new places lo go can,  for a hundred dollars plus the  fares and hotels and so forth,  conduct Iheir own searches for  Ihe Loch Ness monster. A mini-  sub has been provided at a site  where many of the more mystc-  rioso sightings have been made.  There is no guarantee thai  Nessie will be seen bul Ihey  might perhaps have a couple of  drams at the local pub before  going.  Travel is broadening, as we  have always said, but when you  are lining up behind families  from Peoria elc, and checking  your cameras etc., to have your  personal go at discovering Ihe  monster, there could be some  sinking of the spirits I would  Ihink.  And if you went down, as  you probably would being over  Ihere, lo London, you would  find lhal splendid old cily actually physically clogged with  families from Peoria etc. Even a  London cab, which as we all  know can turn on a dime, with a  London cabbie who knows all  the labyrinthine back streets like  the palm of his hand, could  hardly undertake to get you to  the church on time.  The tourist phenomenon has  ceased to be a phenomenon and  is a fully established international way of life. It seems to be  booming just about everywhere.  I heard a man on the radio the  other morning from the Magdalen Islands. I have flown over  the Magdalen Islands in the  Gulf of St. Lawrence several  times in a flying boat and have  looked down and thought that,  well, here was a good looking  remote place, but the man on the  radio was saying that he didn't  go sealing anymore because of  Bridgetle Bardot, but that he  made a buck taking tourists out  over the ice floes.  in a nutshell  There's nothing really new  aboul tourism, of course. In  Agalha Christie's Death on the  Nile, a scene from the '20s, we  have a group of paying guests  who arc being organized and  shepherded about the Egyptian  lombs in just the way Ihey might  be today. It is just the sheer all-  encompassing extent of it loday  lhat can give you little thoughts  aboul who is in who else's zoo.  Travel though is still an  adventure and still broadening.  Paul Theroux is a man of many  books, aboul 50 per cent of  which are tales of personal  adventure, being travel books.  Theroux's adventures are nol on  the lines of Raiders of the Lost  Ark or whatever, but they are  adventures and they are for real  and they are still available to all.  One winter he found himself  a bit jaded in New England and  decided to write a travel book  and packed a rucksack and  picked up a six-pack and got on  a train in Boston going south.  He thought he would just sit  there (replenishing the six-packs  along the way) until he got to  the closest lo the bottom of  South America as the rails  would go. This should make  some sort of a book shouldn't  it? And it did. And anyone  could do it, couldn't they?  Theroux's approach seems  more sensible than Graham  Greene's under similar circumstances. Greene was one of the  two or Ihree most celebrated  writers in the language when he  stuart nutter  to felt himself a bit jaded and  decided lhal the thing to do was  write a travel book. He consulted an atlas, decided Liberia was  a country that hadn't been written aboul much, got together a  minimal type walking party and  walked across Liberia, really a  Ihing that no one would ever  want to do.  Greene ran into hardships he  sometimes thought above and  beyond the call of his modest  intention, ll is a good book, but  Theroux, with his bottom firmly  on a seat throughout, wrote The  Great Palagimian Express.  I travelled wilh a travel writer for a while. I'll correct that  and say that I moved about a bit  in Canada with Alekko Lilius.  We were doing a series for the  International Service of the  CBC (radio) on after-the-war  refugees from eastern Europe,  some professors and such, who  were making their way in the  new land doing manual jobs to  pay for their fares out. If that  sounds complicated it was sure  complicated at the lime.  Alekko had grown up in  Georgia, USSR where his father  was Finnish Consol. He had a  great facility with languages and  could make out with most of the  many in that fascinating and  dangerous part of the world. He  had always been out looking, as  you might say, and before the  age of 20, he had been with a  travelling German circus  dressed as a Laplander with a  bunch of reindeer.  It was not really surprising lo  find that he had written a book  ' called / Lived Wilh Chinese  Pirates and another about a  stone-age tribe discovered by  him living in trees in the Philippines. When I met him he was  fat, 60 and had gout. He was not  moving about as of yore, but he  wanled to be and was always a  traveller.  A traveller is not necessarily  what the North American summer tourist is. There has maybe  been a lot of planning through  the winter, down to when they  will arrive at which hotel, on  July 10. But plans can be  changed and diaries can be kepi.  Me, I am going to slay at  home this year. There will be a  bunch of tourists coming in lo  have Iheir pictures taken outside  Molly's Reach, but I will be  mostly watching travel film on  the TV.  This, these days, can be pretty good, but I have always the  question: Where is the camera?  i ..        loi     II  letters  .  Figuring on CORE  Your March 28 article "Coast  loggers take part in CORE protest  at legislature" claims "...(CORE)  proposes that Ihe Vancouver  Island forest land base available  for logging be reduced by 21 per  cent, and quotes provincial Liberal leader Gordon Campbell as  saying "a reduction of 12 per cent  is plenty."  I have some good news for  Mr. Campbell: CORE recommends lhat only seven per cent  land be preserved on Vancouver  Island.  Dividing this by the current 94  per cent of forest land available  for logging on the island shows  that the reduction is in fact 7.S per  cent. Logging would be restricted  with "non-consumptive" (recreational, etc.) activities given pri  ority in another eight per cent..  The recommended reduction in  prime timberland available for  logging (read "ancient rain forest") is 1.8 per cenl.  As a person very concerned  about both the environment and  the economic future of the  province I have some concerns  both with the CORE proposals  and the CORE process itself.  However if we are ever to  come to a rapprochement in this  ongoing debate it is essential that  we at least agree on the hard  facts. Exaggeration from whatever source does us all a disservice.  My sources are CORE chair  Stephen Owen on CKNW, CBC  radio and his letter to the Vancouver Sun and the Canfor Information Bulletin of Feb. 16,1994.

Please inform your client,  Mr. Jeffrey Tong, that there is a  large and increasing public  interest in establishing a community park on Lot 1, Block B,  Plan 8663, in Sechelt and thai  Ihe park concept was endorsed  by Sechelt Council (Motion No.  7780) on September 1,1993.  Sechelt's Official Community Plan is going through revision  and as of April 1993 it was  firmly established through the  OCP process lhat Ihis land be  designated as a nalural park. It  is unfortunate lhat perhaps Ihis  information has not been more  adequately emphasized by  Sechelt's Planning Department  during developmeni proposal  discussions wilh Coast Architectural Group over the past few  months.  Sechelt's new council is  learning about the ways and  means by which Lot I, Block B,  Plan 8663 could become a park  and are beginning to realize the  strength of public interest in the  park concept.  We trust that Mr. Tong is  also interested in the park proposal for this property and that  he will be happy to collaborate  with the municipality and the  community.  In representing the public  interest we would be pleased to  discuss the issue with you.  PAT CHAMBERLIN  Trail Bay Protection Society  Options for Trail  Bay  I am frustrated and indignant  over the way Sechelt Council  has dealt with the Trail Bay Protection Society, the group  attempting to save the last large  parcel of land on the waterfront  and within Ihe town. I refer, of  course, to Lol I, Block B, Plan  8663, Ihe area bounded by the  Illusions and Pebbles restaurants, and by Teredo St. and the  ocean.  In this regard, please note the  following:  ��� The present council consistently refuses to even look at  options proposed by the TBPS  as viable ways to negotiate purchase of the land without an  undue burden on the taxpayers.  ��� Instead, they have for the  past several months been negotiating with the owner in a highly  secretive and, it would appear,  encouraging fashion in order to  develop a plan to build condominiums, townhouses and commercial space on lhat site.  ��� Now, as a result of the  Planning Committee meeting of  March 22,1994, the members of  Ihis committee who were present ��� Rosina Giles, Ray Rempel, Duncan Fraser, Stan Dixon,  as well as staff members Rob  Buchan and Michael Vaughan  ��� all supported the latest development proposal from the  owner, Jeffrey Tong.  Incorporated in this agreement was acceptance of a roof  line which is almost two meters  higher than the existing by-law  requires.  ��� After the formality (it  would appear) of publishing the  variance in the local newspapers, council is then free to pass  Mr. Tong's proposal.  In the light of my experience,  it is most unlikely that they will  follow their own guidelines and  refuse the developer a building  permit!  Actually, il would appear  from all of their actions to date  that Sechelt Council would like  nothing better than to see the  Trail Bay Protection Society  quietly die. They Ihink we are a  fester on the body politic of this  town simply because we are  fighting to save a precious piece  of waterfront land for the benefit of everyone who lives here or  visits the Coast.  As I staled earlier, whal is  most frustrating to our group is  the refusal on the part of Council to even look at ways of purchasing the property that are satisfactory to Council and Ihe  owner.  If they are to attempt this  and, in the long run fail, al least  everyone could have said "we  tried," and you cannot be condemned for trying.  Come on, Sechelt Council!  Be people of stature and imagination, not just politicians looking for a quick fix. The easy  way is lo let Jeffrey Tong develop the property.  The hard way, and no one in  our group denies it, is to enter  negotiations to obtain this land  for the Sunshine Coast. But in  the long run, that is the only  option worthy of your office and  the people you will be serving.  RUTH HOULE  Sechelt  IRISH,  FRESH,  IRESH!  AUDREYS  COFFEE  SERVICE  The  Coast  News:  The Sunshine  Coast's  first choice  for news, sports  & entertainment  coveragel  Over-developing  Sechelt  With the growth of Ihe Sunshine Coast, we long-term residents must accept a certain  degree of change, but in return  new residents and developments  must respect our concerns, as so  many of us have invested years  of sweat, taxes and tears into  our communities.  I am not in favour of a ban  on development but if growth is  to be constructive it must  include foresight.  What really disturbs me is  the apparent disinterest and one-  mindedness of our own politicians.  Sechelt Council seems bent  on developing every inch of  land possible in Ihe village for  commercial tax base, without  realizing thai as soon as the  'boom' in Sechelt is over, we  could well be left wilh empty  storefronts and commercial  dead-zones.  The one guaranteed asset,  both financially and aesthetically, to Ihis communily would be  a waterfront park. It would  attract passers-through on the  new highway (Teredo) to stop,  enjoy the waterfront, and enjoy  the downtown.  This is not fantasy, this is a  proven fact in many communities.  In addition, this park could  offer a degree of urban relief lo  residents both young and old  which is going to prove crucial  in the coming years.  Sechelt Council appears to be  hi a real hurry to push the  newest developmeni proposal  for Trail Bay through, complete  with variances to our height  bylaw. What is Ihe use of a  bylaw?  If our council could see past  their own interests and show  some responsibility and support,  then the organizers of the park  and residents can work to make  this asset a reality, without  financial burden to the community.  AARON CHAMBERLIN  Sechelt  $$ in Trail Bay  Park  It seems timely In clarify  some misconceptions about  acquisition costs of Trail Bay  Park.  Relax.  The land would not need to  be purchased through taxes and  it would in fact generate considerable revenue as a park. A zoning for amenities bylaw would  enable purchase, as would a  land swap (municipal lot at  Wharf and Boulevard) and  transfers of development rights.  There is money in Sechelt's  Parks Fund and parks DCCs  will soon be in place lo assure a  steady income.  Also, government involvement on other levels is quite  likely should Sechelt show initiative.  Lei's not mock Ihe policies  of our existing communily plan  and ils process of revision,  which places park preservation  as a top priority.  The OCP committee specified Trail Bay Park. This is your  communily speaking. Bul to  whom?  Sechelt's Councils have  played deaf and dumb for two  years on this issue. How can  Ihey dismiss the research, Ihe  public interest and problem  solving lhal has gone inlo Ihe  Trail Bay Park concept? Who is  pulling their strings? Exactly  who stands to gain from a commercial condo developmeni of  Ihis "possibly for sale" proper-  iy?  Likely, these people would  gain more over lime from the  land being a park as business  revenues and property values  GIBSONS  CHRISTIAN BOOKS  2A-747 NORTH RD.,  GIBSONS  Store Hours:  Mon.-Sat. 11-5   ,jr  Fri. 11 - 7 Ph: 886-4748  are known to increase dramatically in Ihe vicinity of parks for  several miles distance.  A waterfront park on a highway passing through downlown  is a treasure lhat only fools  would pass up.  Give it a resident caretaker,  information cenlre and historical  display and you'll encourage  visitors to stop in Sechelt as  well as satisfying community  and environmental needs.  Sechelt Council could still save  this land.  All Ihey need is lo consult  with good advisors, refer to the  Municipal Act, address some of  our research and show some  guts.  A challenge?  We know whal it's like, Mr.  Basse. Try it.  PAT CHAMBERLIN  Trail Bay Protection Society  Derailing Trail Bay  It appalls me lo see Sechell  Council bowing to the wishes of  Mr. Tong's developers even  though there is conflict over the  use of Lol I Block B Plan 8663.  With the support of many hundred Sechelt residents, the Trail  Bay Park Sociely (TBPS) is lobbying for Ihis piece of land to  remain undeveloped.  It is the only piece of land  along the Trail Bay waterfront  one can walk without feeling as  though one is trespassing on  someone's front yard.  It contains the foundations  from Ihe first settlements in  Sechelt and artifacts from the  Sechelts' pasl generation. The  proposed park would be a great  buffer between the beach and  Ihe downlown core while drawing people back inlo the shopping area.  Sechelt Council has been  very uncooperative. TBPS has  asked many times for a meeting  between themselves and Sechelt  Council to present their ideas  for acquiring the land without  Ihe use of tax dollars or loss of  profits.  Sechelt Council has yel lo  agree to a meeting or to give  support in principle of a park on  Loll. Instead, Sechelt Council  has given the okay to Ihe second  presentation for luxury apartments, preparing to pass variances to Ihe bylaws they should  be upholding.  After Ihe firsl presentation  was vetoed, Sechell Council  made recommendations to Ihe  presenters on how to make their  developmeni plans more appealing lo council.  When will the voters be  heard? Lot I is the last natural  green space along the Trail Bay  waterfront. If il isn't saved  now it will never be there again.  Sechell Council needs a little  foresight.  JEANNETTE GORY  Sechdt  Residents want  park  At Ihe March 23 meeting of  Ihe Sechell Village Residents'  Association the Trail Bay Park  and proposal for development  were discussed al length.  By a majority decision we  felt council should have written  documentalion that the Seclielt  Village Residents' Association  favours thai this unique property  (Lot I, Blk. B, Plan 8663) be  designated parkland in perpetuity.  Comparable parks at Horseshoe Bay (2.6 acres) and Ihe  new Gibsons Landing Waterfront Park (I.J acres) should  give us the incentive, the will  power and Ihe careful consideration of Ihe future to pursue this  mailer lo successful conclusion.

The amnesty period was  announced in Elizabeth Cull's  budget speech last month. Cull  said businesses have until midnight June 30 to make good on  what they owe without fear of  penalty or prosecution.  "Those who fail to respond  will face stiffer consequences,  as government is going lo get  tougher in auditing and collecting the taxes," she said.  Anyone who fails lo collect,  remit, or pay tax as required  under the legislation is subject  to a 10-per-cent penally. In the  pasl Ihis applied only where tax  had been collected, accounted  for but not remitted, or where  tax remittances were late. People could be warned several  times about their accounting  practices without being penalized.  Effective July 1, 1994, the  penalty will apply to every business lhat continues to fail lo  remit tax afler being warned. It  will also apply in cases where  purchases have been made, but  tax has not been paid, if the  business has been previously  warned. "It is all part of our goal  to achieve tax fairness," said  Cull.  "We are concerned about  businesses that fail to remit  taxes they have collected on  behalf of government because  this money is held in trust and  belongs to the people of BC."  The 25-per-cent penalty for  willfully evading paying tax and  a 100-per-cent penalty for willfully failing to remit tax collected remain unchanged. Offenders  in these cases may also face  court-imposed fines and even  imprisonment.  A similar amnesty program  was introduced in the province  in 1985 and resulted in revenue  of more than $1.5 million. This  time around the government  expects revenue will total aboul  $3 million.  Cull said the negotiation of  this contract establishes a positive relationship between the  government and its employees.  "We have said from the  beginning lhat there was no new  money for wage increases Ihis  year and the union recognized  that. Instead, negotiations  focused on better training and  career development opportunities for employees and ensuring  workers have a strong voice in  Sign painter Lee Warwa took advantage of the sunny weather  last week to create the storefront sign for the new Wharf Street  Market in Sechelt.  decisions that will improve the  delivery of services to British  Columbians."

Wilson said "the consulting  fees for this project will be paid  from the funding allotted to the  EDC under the terms of an  agreement between the Sechell  Chamber and the District of  Sechelt.  "The committee has been  swamped with proposals from  interested parties seeking funding assistance," said Wilson.  "I would like to make it very  clear that the EDC is not a funding body for private enterprise  projects. We are eager to offer  advice, referrals and support to  private projecls that we feel  would be in the best interest of  the community, bul we do not  give grants or loans to individual businesses. Our mandate is to  develop and implement economic strategies for Sechelt.  "We are confident that coming up with answers to our  downtown parking problem will..  most definitely be of economic ,  benefit to all our downtown  businesses." v  tax tips  1. If you moved to another  province in 1993 you may find a  change in income tax rate. Different provinces have different  tax rales.  For example, living in BC  could save you money because  BC's income lax rate is lower  than that of some other  provinces.  You are considered a resident  of a province for tax purposes if  your home was in that province  as of December 31,1993.  2. Planning at lax time can  help you and your parents afford  the increasing costs of higher  education.  Students are entitled to claim  a credit of 25 per cent of tuition  fees paid lo a post-secondary or  certified institution, as well as a  credit of $21 per month for full  time attendance at such an institution. Tuition fees must exceed  $100 per institution lo be eligible.  If the credits are not used by  the student, up lo $680 may be  transferred to the student's  spouse or supporting parent or  grandparent. If you receive scholarships, bursaries or fellowships,  the first $500 is not taxable.  Look into Ihe lax breaks of  higher education.  3. Many people have mailed  original documents lo Revenue  Canada Taxation and have never  seen Ihem again. Whal should  you do?  Don't send your original documents lo Revenue Canada Taxation. Only send copies of any  document to Revenue Canada  Taxation and address your correspondence to the same person  who wrote to you, quoting a file  number. You may even want to  send the information by registered mail.  If the tax department wants to  see your original document, take  it there if necessary but don't let  them keep it. Your original documents are valuable property.  4. If you started your own  business in 1993, or plan to start  your own business in 1994,  choosing a date for your business  year end is an important tax decision.  Normally your fiscal year is  12 months. However in your first  year of operation you can choose  to have a short fiscal year and  that could mean a deferral of  taxes on your first year of  income. This could put you in a  lower tax bracket and help your  cash flow by reducing your quarterly tax instalments for the next  year.  If you are planning to start a  new business in 1994, seek the  aid of professionals. It may save  you money you would otherwise  pay in taxes.  5. Do you earn a regular  income for lips and gratuities?  Waiters, waitresses and other  people who eam regular income  from tips and gratuities should  keep a diary of the amounts they  receive. Just because the money  is in cash and records may not be  kept doesn't mean Revenue  Canada will forget about it.  Revenue Canada keeps statistical records on the average  amounts a waiter or waitress  receives in tips in a year. If the  amount you report is different  and someone decides to ask why,  you must be able to back up your  figures.  Although you don't have to  send a diary in with your tax  return, you should have one  available for examination. If you  receive lower-than-average tips,  a diary can prevent an unfair  assessment.  ���Information for Tax Tips is  provided as a public service by  the Chartered Accountants of  British Columbia and the Sunshine Coast News.  i  PHOTOWORKS I  Trail Boy Mall.

In 1931 Walter's father left  his railroad tie mill in Boston  Bar and moved the family to a  farm on the newly drained and  reclaimed land on the Sumas  Prairie.  But Sumas Prairie turned lo a  lake again when an ice storm in  January 1935 downed the lines  that brought power to the  pumps.  After a winter crowded into a  neighbour's house on high  ground, Walter's family moved  back to the Sumas Prairie farm.  In 1939 the family moved to  a smaller farm in Sardis when  Waller's father returned lo logging. Waller was left with Ihe  tiresome chore of milking Ihe  cows.  "One cow, Bessie by name,  always managed, no matter  what precautions I look, to plop  a hoof in the milk pail just about  the time the pail was full."  In 1945, upon graduating  from Chilliwack High School,  Walter went logging and 40  years later finished a career in  the woods as a superintendent in  Canadian Forest Products.  "He did occasional work in  the woods afler lhal for Percy  Logging." Barbara told us, "to  fill in blank spots until a regular  employee was found."

The dock  Sometime within Ihe nexl  two months, the dock will no  longer be used to pump oil but  will remain intact for Iwo years  as a backup in case the truck  traffic plans don'l work out. In  1997, Chevron's lease expires,  the upkeep and maintenance  will no longer be their responsibility and the future of Ihe dock  will be a source of concern to all  residents in this area.  Officers for the coming year  were welcomed into their positions by the members and they  are: Jim Smith, president; Phil  Makow, vice-president; Alison  LeDuc, secretary; John Denham, treasurer; Eileen Nelsen,  Louise Colliss and Gwen  Abram, directors.

Children's Falre  The Children's Faire held at  Rockwood Lodge during Spring  Break was a smashing success  lhanks to the efforts of organizer  Sandy McBride and her hardworking assistants, Kay Bailey  and Gord Webber. Without Ihe  dedication of a band of volunteers, these kinds of programs  are impossible.  Sandy would like to especially thank Gail Sangster (prizes  and games), Rosemary Coates  (graffiti room,) Rosette Sharelte  (bead room) and psychic Barbara Ann Scott who entertained  tirelessly for two days.  The faire provided a showcase for young talent which  included dancers, fiddlers and  karate demonstrations. The generosity of Trail Bay Mall merchants, Shorncliffe and the Sunshine Coast Credit Union made  it all possible and was much  appreciated.

It is an especially  beautiful month of the year as  things seem to grow magically  overnight, everywhere.  But not always as we so carefully planned; there are English  daisies in the lawn and grass in  the flower beds. Yards and parks  are looking wonderful as the  fruit; trees flower, shrubs bloom  and Ihe. spring bulbs shoot up  into colour. Beginning with  Easter, this is a month of new  beginnings and high hopes for  the future.  ll is not surprising that the  Canadian Cancer Society has  chosen April as the month it  raises funds for research and the  developmeni of new treatment  techniques.

Our daughter writes from  New York City, where she  works as a librarian in Jackson  Heights, that she is constantly  meeting people who have spent  their entire lives in the city with  only an occasional weekend out  of the cement jungle. She says  many people have no sense of  conservation or of caring for Ihe  environment.  These concepts are just not  real when you never see eagles  wheeling above or ducks nesting  in Ihe reeds or fawns nibbling  daintily on the blooms of your  favourite shrub.  We are fortunate to Uve here  with access to a great urban  sprawl just south of us when we  crave temporarily the hubbub  and excitement of humanity in  constant movement.

Music festival returns to  Coast for 21st year running  The 1994 Sunshine Coast  Music Festival will feature a  record number of entries this  year with 1,129 people preparing to take the stage.  "It's growing and of course it  will grow more and more  because the population is growing more and more," said Lois  Fishleigh, chair of the Sunshine  Coast Music Festival for the past  two years.  Fishleigh took over as chair  of the festival organization committee two years ago from Barb  Cattanach who had held the  position for 19 years.  The festival will open April  13 at th. Chatelech Secondary  School gymnasium in Sechelt  with vocal, instrumental and  choir entries taking the stage for  three days. There are 61 individual performances scheduled in  the vocal category along with 44  performances by instrumentalists.  Michael Angell will adjudicate the program.  They will be followed by the  pianoforte events April 18-20 at  St. John's United Church in  Davis Bay. Ailsa Zaenker is  adjudicator for this program.  The festival will wrap up  with Ihe honors and highlights  concerts April 22-23 at 7 p.m. at  the Raven's Cry Theatre. Residents will be able lo attend the  concerts for a $1 admission fee.  Coast resident Philip Bass  will acl as adjudicator for the  string competition, which has  drawn 42 entries.  Originally from New York  City, Bass retired to Madeira  Park last year from Ontario. He  was a violinist in several symphonies and assistant concert-  master with the Buffalo Philharmonic, the San Antonio Symphony, the Oklahoma City Symphony and concertmaster of the  St. Catherine's Symphony.  "We talk about the festival as  a sharing and learning experience," explained Fishleigh.  Financing is provided  through the B.C. Cultural Fund  at 25 cents per entry.  "There is good community  backing and I think that will  grow as well," Fishleigh said.  Steve Todd, Doug Elliot and Kirstin Nash, pictured, along with Len Hill, Sean Hussein and Bob  Carpenter welcomed a new season at Roberts Creek Community Hall March 26, during the Spring  Blues Dance. Joel Johnstone photo  Coast artist's newest exhibit  demonstrates an affinity for Mexico  by Darah Hansen  It's an empathy for Ihe people that drew artist Jeffrey  Birkin so closely into Mexico.  More precisely, he says, it's  an empathy for people who lead  fulfilling existences, who are  productive and happy, yet who  are not necessarily well off.  "I saw thai and was engaged  by the fact it was a different culture, one of high(er) contrast  than the one we have  here...Things seem more  extreme, more intense."  And since his first trip down  south in Ihe late 1980s, the 31-  year-old Roberts Creek native  has returned again and again to  explore his fascination with the  country.  The end result is a series of  intense visual works he calls Art  and Spirit I: Visions, on display  now at the Richmond Art  Gallery on the Lower Mainland.  The show ��� a collection of  about 30 paintings ��� is a culmination of Birkin's last four years  working as an artist.  The focus is the artist's  increasing personal connection  with Mexico.  But Art and Spirit I: Visions  is not a study of the Mexican  style of art, Birkin is quick to  point out. Rather, it is more his  own study of Mexican culture.  In his own words, the work is  lhat seen by an "outsider." In so  doing, Birkin acted as a kind of  voyeur of the culture, borrowing  the pieces which struck him,  weaving them all in wilh his  own unique style.  And with this particular body  of work, bright colours stand out  An illustration from Sunshine Coast artist Jeffrey Birkin's Art  and Spirit 1: Visions. His Mexican-influenced works of art are on  exhibit at the Richmond Art Gallery until April 18.  as a prominent feature. Art and  Spirit I: Visions is alive with a  whole range of vivid reds and  orange, deep greens and blues.  For Birkin, the mix of Ihose  dynamic hues represents one  more layer of the show's complexity. "Il's aboul bringing oul  contrasts."  Birkin says his artistic style  is hard to label.  A self-taught artist, his paintings are marked with a blend of  wild expressionistic brush work  and strangely distorted human  anatomy and background.  "I'm not a realist painter by  any means," says Birkin. "My  work is very much a fantasy."  Birkin credits his current  interest, knowledge and love of  Ihe visual arts lo his youth in  Roberts Creek and to all the  artists who lived in the communily. This early conlacl with the  arts later on helped him develop  his own artistic talents, he says.  Showing alongside Birkin's  work at Ihe Richmond Gallery  this month is a collection of  yarn paintings from Mexico's  Huichol Indians.  Located in the Sierra Madre  mountains, northwest of  Guadalajara, the Huichols are an  ancient culture dating back to  about 200 A.D.  In contrast to Birkin's own  'outsider' view of the Mexican  culture, the Huichol art works  are filled with "a very inner and  codified spirituality."  Depictions of the peyote cactus are frequently found in the  work as both artists and shaman  use it to obtain direction and  knowledge.  Art and Spirit I: Visions is on  now al ihe Richmond Art  Gallery until April 18.

David Nicholson  photo  Sechelt minor ball in  search of diamonds  by Don Anderson  Add baseball diamonds to  the list of recreational needs on  the Sunshine Coast.  "Our biggest complaint  around here is we don't have  enough fields," said Eva Tripp,  a volunteer with the Sechelt  Minor Baseball Association.  Like the Sunshine Coast  Minor Hockey Association,  minor ball volunteers are having to turn children away  because there simply isn't  enough recreational space to  accommodate the growing  numbers of interested players.  "It's another thing of bucks  and not keeping up with the  times," Tripp said.  At the present moment, the  minor ball association is relegated to using the rapidly deteriorating West Sechelt Elementary School baseball diamond,  which is targeted for three new  portable classrooms.  The diamond is used for the  T-ball and Mite divisions, and  the fear is a nearby portable will  be the target for home runs and  wayward fly balls into the outfield this season.  "You can only afford so  many broken windows," said  Tripp.  The association's only other  choices are the two diamonds at  Connor Park, owned and operated by the regional district, and  the privately run diamonds in  Davis Bay owned by the Davis  Bay/Wilson Creek Community  Association.  The District of Sechelt has  indicated it will add two diamonds to Kinnikinnick Park but  that won't happen before the  start of the 1994 minor ball season.  The only remaining field at  Chatelech Secondary School is  no longer used by the association because it was determined  to be "too hard on the kids,"  Tripp said.  The association caters to ball  players age six to 18. Last year  the league managed to put  together 27 teams and this year  is anticipating the formation of  30 teams spread over five levels  of play.  Some 400 avid young ball  players are expected to go up to  bat this season and Tripp said  that number could be higher if  the association had the facilities.  "We've always tried to make  room for everybody but last  year we could not make room  for everybody," she said.  "There are only so many  kids you can ask anyone to take  on."  Players and their parents  have until Saturday to register  for play this season.  Fees start at $25 for individuals and $40 for families. Registration forms can be filled out  at Trail Bay Sports.  "And we're always looking  for more coaches,"-Tripp said.  The season begins at the end  of April and runs until the end  of June, followed by a league  tournament and wrap-up party.

The first issue of the Coast News rolled off the presses on July 11, 1945, providing in-depth coverage for the  Coast's little more than 500 residents.

"We here at General Motors  Land care deeply about your  communily, even though we're  established 2,000 miles away  and don't really have much of a  history in your community," a  soft, female-like computerized  voice purrs as the doors of Ihe  newly built Vancouver hockey-  basketball complex open.  "Sure, Ihere are only few  hundred of your nearly two million residents directly employed  by us. But hey, a whole shmeer  of you drive our products," the  voice continues as a conveyor  bell ��� oops, a moving walkway  ��� carries patrons around an  ornate foyer decorated wilh pic-  lures of Corvettes, Cadillacs,  Trans-Ams and other makes and  models of can; and trucks created over Ihe years by GM.  Below the pictures of the  cars are liny pictures of Dale  Tallon, Tiger Williams, Richard  Brodeur, Pal Quinn, Pavel Bure,  Howie Meeker, Burt Reynolds,  the CEO of GM and the Mayor  of Flint.  "Whal? You say you're not'  impressed with our attempt to  make professional sports more  commercial than Ihey currently  are?" the pseudo-friendly voice  queries, snapping your attention  puck's bruise  away from the picture of Howie  Meeker and the inevitable question circling your mind, looking  for a place lo land: "Why do  Ihey have a picture of him up  there?"  You ponder the question and  shrug, admitting lhal sports have  grown rather commercial.  "C'mon, you bleeding-heart  dimwits, the grassroots of sports  went oul wilh Ihe bath water  when Babe Ruth signed with Ihe  Yankees. It's been big business  ever since. Gel a grip, God!"  snaps the voice of Tiger  Williams, slightly slowed down  thanks lo tape stretch from overuse.  The conveyor belt comes to a  halt and several men and  women dressed in orange and  black overalls with Ihe Canucks  and NBA Beached Whales  logos on the front and back  scurry up lo you and methodically hand you drinks, popcorn  and programs. The walkway  Ian cobb  revs into gear again and you  move toward the entrances of  Ihe lavish new arena.  Of course, if you have a private box, you enter from the  back of the complex where the  players, agents, refs, media and  imported Hollywood personalities wearing GM hals and jack-  els enter. They, of course, don'l  gel the Orwellian welcome.  Another drone in orange and  black points you lo your seat  and speakers expound the grand  history of GM, while black tales  about Ford Motors circulate  throughout the new-car-scented  stadium. At the far end, where  the pictures of Ihe Queen and  Mike Harcourt groveling before  Ihe CEO of Canadian Pacific  Railways once dangled, hangs a  very large picture of Arthur  Griffiths kneeling before a  Vega.  The Canucks, their talent  base increased by the plentiful  bones tossed to the organization,  thanks to the relationship they  established with corporate  America, are aboul to embark  upon yet another doo-doo  stomping of a lesser fortunate  learn who still play out of arenas  wilh names reflecting the prf��  of a community.  These teams may be lousy  bul when they flump onto their  straw mats at night, they're  secure in the knowledge that  when they die, their souls will  float directly into hockey/basketball heaven. No tut-tut-tut  speeches for them.  We may be a bit distanced  from the shenanigans happening  on Ihe Lower Mainland concerning Arthur Griffiths' new  sports palace being named General Motors Place, but we  should take heed.  It's the wave of the future.  Hell, if we go far enough into  Ihe future, Ihere won't be  nations. There will be companies. There won't be a Vancouver Canucks. It'll be the GM  Canucks.  And we here on the Sunshine  Coast, bickering still about  whether or not we should have a  second sheet of ice, could be  approached by McDonald's  with an offer we can't refuse.  "Welcome to Ronald's Sunshine Arena..."  Sailors in transition from Frostbite to Spring  Competitive Prices  886-7033  Now that spring flowers are  blooming, it only makes sense  that the Frostbite Sailing Season  has come to an end.  The Sunday morning/afternoon sailboat races taking place  in and around Gibsons Harbour  look a respite last weekend after  nearly three months of sailing in  conditions that have ranged  from hot and sunny to snowy  and cold to rainy and grey.  "Last Sunday there was no  wind but it was beautiful. The  week before it was snowing and  the wind was laying all the boats  flat in the rear," said Dennis  O'Brien, a racer and one of the  ��� ANNOUNCING  UAP/NAPA AUTO PARTS  (Sunshine Auto Supply)  & AUTO MARINE ELECTRIC  have joined forces at  5546 WHARF ROAD  SECHELT, B.C.  to serve you,  our valued customer.

Please call on us for all your automotive, heavy duty  & industrial needs.  Phone: 805-2296  Fax: 885-4201  race organizers.  For now, the IS or so boats  and crews involved in the Sunday racing that's affiliated with,  but not pari of, the Gibsons  Yacht Club will take a brief  respite before launching into the  Spring Season which runs from  April until June.  The level of racing is also  increasing, as is the sailors' skill  level and quality of boats.  O'Brien noted thai several  local sailors have upgraded Iheir  craft to "go-faster machines."  While experience is a must  for sailors looking to test their  skills by racing, "tt&m in mi  ���round Uie inner naroour dr oup  side the harbour, "the races are  open to public. It's a socijl  event that takes place on the  water and you don't have to be a  member of any club," O'Brien  said.  In the words of regular racer  Dan Legg: "It's great fun. The  guys are really getting into il."  Another racing aspect being  bandied about by local racers is  the possibility of a a tri-club  race, with sailboats from the  Sunshine Coast, Squamish and  Bowen Island converging "for a  club race or even jusl for some  kind of cruise activity," O'Brien  suggested.  "This is just the start ��� a  seed," he said.  O'Brien would like to see the  local races expand, possibly to  include longer jaunts, with competition coming from other  Howe Sound communities, as  well as from across Georgia  Strait.

Twain replied: "Finding a  spider in your paper is  neither good nor bad luck.  Tltt spider was merely  looting over our paper to  see which merchant was  not advertising so that he  could go to that store,  spin his web across the  door, and lead a life of  undisturbed peace ever  afterward."

The landscape is white, flat and  barren. The temperature is minus  40. This is the Canadian Arctic,  an area about which many Canadians know little and which even  fewer will ever visit.  For two years in a row, Ann  Skelcher, principal at Langdale  Elementary, and Janet Crosby, a  primary teacher at Langdale,  have travelled to Iqaluit, on Baffin Island in the Northwest Territories.  The town of about 3,500 lies  approximately 1,800 kilometres  north of Ottawa.  "It felt like stepping onto a  different planet," Crosby said of  her arrival in Iqaluit. "It's such a  different landscape to here. It's  flat, completely white. It's like '  everything is frosted white. The  only way you can tell the water  from the land is that the land is  bumpy."  The two Sunshine Coast residents were invited to Iqaluit by  the Baffin Island School Board  lo help the staff create a new  direction for education on the  island.  Both the vast distances and  the harsh environment of the  Canadian North were particularly overwhelming and awe-inspiring for Skelcher and Crosby.  From their hotel room, they  could look across  the frozen Fro-        bisher Bay to  land on the other  side.  "I thought you  could go on a  couple of hours  hike across to the     ^_^^_  other side, then I  asked somebody.  It's a one-day trip," Skelcher  said. "You can see so far  because there are no obstructions."  Crosby agreed.  "I didn't realize how remote  it is. The fact that the only way  in is by air was so awesome to  me. You can't go anywhere by  car except within the town itself.  There are no roads for thousands  of miles. There's no way out but  by plane."  A power outage while the two  women were shopping really  brought home for them just how  isolated Iqaluit is.  Crosby realized that if the  back-up systems  failed,  it  wouldn't take long for the two to  freeze to death.           "There's   a  sense of being  vulnerable in our  lifestyle, what  we (from the  South) are used  to," Skelcher  __^___     explained.  Both women  knew   it   was  going to be cold, but the frigidity  still came as a shock.  Skelcher remembered one  episode that illustrated the bitter  weather.  "One day 1 was outside taking  pictures without gloves on. I  wasn't out for very long, but it  was minus 60 (degrees). I  grabbed for the metal hotel door  and I literally burnt my hand!"  "Your eyelashes even freeze,"  ���I didn't realize  bow remote it is'  -fanel Crosby  Crosby added.  Skelcher felt the brutal, yet  beautiful, surroundings the Inuit  have lived in for centuries have  shaped their character today.  "They have a sense of family  and community and connection  that we have lost." "Their survival is amazing," Crosby said.  "There, nature is first and they  are a part of it. Here, we think  we are first and nature is part of  us."  While they were in Iqaluit,  the caribou arrived for the first  time in about 80 years.  "It was their migratory cycle  coming around again. The lichen  they eat takes that long to grow  again," Skelcher said. "The Inuit  were hunting just outside of the  town. They then fly some of the  meat up to share with family in  other communities."  Despite the cold weather and  the harsh environment, the two  women would go back again.  Crosby tried to explain:  "There's something that draws  you there. The spirit of the north.  It is a very powerful place."  Spirits 'broken by change' in far north schools  by Christine Bodt  "It's really sad because the  school system that's up there is  Above, Janet Crosby practices  her swing with a cold 7-lron  amid the snow on Baffin Island.

REAUY CARL IT'S NOT JUST A SLOGAN  OUR WAY OF DOUG BUSMES&  The management & staff at  the southern system. The Inuit  are trying to find a way to create  their own system after ours has  already been established. It's  hard to break it all down and  then have a vision about something completely different." ���  Janet Crosby, Langdale Elementary school teacher  Crosby, along with prinicipal  Ann Skelcher, has spent two  separate weeks at the Joamie  Elementary School in Iqaluit,  Northwest Territories. The experience with the northern education system was a real eye-opener for both women.  Just 40 years ago the Inuit  were living nomadically. Since  then, conditions on Baffin Island  have changed radically, in a  large part because of the construction of an American Air  Force Base.  "The Inuit have recognized  that before it's too late they need  to maintain their language and  culture," Skelcher said.  "Change came too fast and  the people who created that  change didn't have any thought  to what effect it would have on  the Native people," Crosby said.  Alcohol and drug abuse is prevalent in Iqaluit. "I think a lot of it  is just broken spirits from  change."  To attend high school,  teenagers have to move from  tiny hamlets thousands of miles  away. The residential school in  Iqaluit houses teens from as far  south as the southern tip of Hudson Bay and as far north as the  high Arctic.  "They are away from their  communities and their families.  There were three suicides within  a month last year at the school,"  Skelcher said.  While 80 per cent of the  Joamie School's students are  Inuit, only 20 per cent of the  staff is.  "We were trying to bring out  from the Inuit staff their visions,  images and values about  schools, learning and children,"  Skelcher said.  There is a high turnover of  staff at the school, and the two  women feel that because they  actually returned for a second  visit, they were trusted and  appreciated.  Skelcher and Crosby said  they learned more from the staff  and the experience than the staff  learned irom them.  "You get out of it so much  more than what you've brought  up there," Crosby said.  Crosby's class at Langdale  has also been enriched because  of their teacher's experience in  Iqaluit.  Iter class members are pen  pals with a class at the.Joamie  School. Crosby taught her students the Inuit written syllables  and each can draw their name.  The teacher shares stories of  life in the Arctic and her visits to  Iqaluit, and the class makes  murals and artwork in the Inuit  tradition.  Both women feel they did  help the school board la its goal  of establishing a vision for Ihe  future.  Skelcher said that at the end  of this year's week, "we handed  over to them the responsibility,  the ownership. The change and  the future are in their hands  5 YEARS AGO  Despite truly miserable conditions this year, S3 participants  showed up at the starting line for  the 12th annual April Fool's Day  Run.  The winner of the Coasl News  Challenge Cup this year was Jim  Verster of North Vancouver who  also won the cup in 1988.  The RCMP Drug Enforcement Branch in Vancouver  wrapped up a major 15-month  international drug investigation  known as Operation Deception.  In all, 33 people received 72  charges, 11 of whom were residents of Gibsons facing a total of  23 drug-related charges.  Three men died during the  investigation ��� including one in  Gibsons and one in Montreal,  and an RCMP officer died in Ihe  line of duty in Thailand.  In a letter to the editor from  Neil Vant, Minister of Transportation and Highways, he  states that "Mr. Gordon Wilson  indicated in the press that the  Gibsons bypass is not a priority.  The Gibsons bypass has been  and remains a priority on the list  of projects under consideration  and has been strongly advocated  by local MLA Harold Long.  Clearly Mr. Wilson's statement  was incorrect."  10 YEARS AGO  Provincial legislation ends the  lockout of workers at the Port  Mellon mill but the Canadian  Paperworkers Union promptly  changed ils locked-out signs for  on-strike signs, protesting the  legislation.  The new fire hall on North  Road, serving the West Howe  Sound Fire Protection District  and Gibsons, opened this week.  A NEWS STORY?
