But environment minister  Moe Sihota says that's an unrealistic and unnecessary goal,  calling his ministry's current  pulp mill standards "the toughest in North America."  The debate between the two  groups arose lasl Monday, Oct.  17 after an explosion at the  Powell River mill caused a massive spill of approximately  150,000 US gallons of chlorine  dioxide ��� a toxic chemical  compound used in the mill's  bleaching process.  The spill, considered a "significant" concern by the Ministry of Environment, forced the  immediate closure of MacMillan Bloedel's kraft mill for five  days and caused the provincial  health department to plan an  emergency evacuation of residents living around the mill site.  The evacuation plan was  deemed unnecessary after the  toxic chemical was dumped into  the Strait of Georgia under the  charge of Ministry of Environment officials.  The spill has prompted the  Vancouver-Island based environmental group Save the Georgia Strait Alliance lo demand a  ban on the use, production and  incineration of chlorine and  chlorine compounds and chlorine contaminated waste in the  mills.  A spokeswoman for the  group, Miranda Holmes, said  the spill clearly shows the government's attempts to manage  and control toxic substances, as  well as restrict Iheir discharge  into the environment, have  failed.  "{The government] is playing what we like to refer lo as a  'toxic shell game'," Holmes  said. "The regulations aren't  solving anything."  But, in an interview Friday,  Oct. 21, Sihota stood firm by  his ministry's regulations which  require all BC pulp mills to  reduce toxic emissions of  organo-chlorines per air-dried  ton of pulp produced to zero by  the year 2002.  He said last week's spill is a  black mark for the pulp mill  industry and illustrates the need  to continue with his government's objective to move  towards the "zero" discharge.  That objective must be met,  Sihota said, "to avoid these  kinds of [spills]."  He added, while he "welcomes" pressure from Ihe likes  of Ihe Strait Alliance, "il's also  fair comment for us to point out  thai [BC] has the toughest standards in Canada...we're way  ahead of any other jurisdiction."  Sihota said the spill does not  necessarily mean provincial  safety standards for BC pulp  mills are inadequate.  "Generally speaking,  province-wide we don't have  these kinds of spills as frequent  occurrences," he said.  Meanwhile, an investigation  by the Ministry of Environment  is on-going at Ihe Powell River  mill.  Wilh results pending from  water toxicity tests, Ray Robb  of the ministry's environmental  protection department, says he's  not sure what to expect.  turn to page 7  Have art, will travel.

We came to see his artwork  Turn-out  lowfor  racism  workshop  by Sandra Smith  Turn-out was low at last  week's forum on racism, but  organizers hope the event can  still be "meaningful" to the  community through the 18 people who participated.  The forum, held at the  Seniors Centre in Sechelt Thursday, Oct. 13, was the third in a  year-long series on building better race relations on the Sunshine Coast. This one focussed  on business relationships  between natives and non-  natives. Only one business  owner ��� Rick Dixon of Sechelt  Hardware ��� showed up.  Other participants included  organizers and "key players" in  the communily such as Sechelt  Band Chief Garry Feschuk,  band members, teachers and  RCMP Staff Sergeant Cam  Reid.  The forum was arranged to  deal with some of the business  and find ourselves surrounded  by it. We have stepped into a  collage.  Sketches and paintings are  pinned up where space allows  and others spill out across the  dcgoul table, competing with  ihe coffee cups and packages of  tobacco.

The living quarters, which  double as an art studio, are close  bul Stevens can't see any other  way to live after having built  and lived in five boats during  his adull life.  His male Catherine, a former  lighthouse keeper, seams just as  comfortable with the lifestyle.  "It'j r��wll living space but  it's not because of the extraordinary places we go to," she says.  "When we row ashore we  meet the most incredible people-  and get to know the hermits and  the fishermen up and down this  coast."  For Stevens, art is his life and  his life is his art. He doesn't  separate the two.  "Instead of art being on canvasses, it's a style. A lifestyle,"  he says, his esoteric nature  unfolding.  With the wohdor of a  kid discovering shells  and craba on tha  beach, 55-year-oM Stevao* recognise* beauty in everything,  even the coloured win* of computer circuit boards. But his own  artistic sense steers him towards  the natural materials of wood  and paper.  "Maybe some great art can  come from computers, but I'd  rather see something done by  hand and worn by time....I want  to make a sculpture out of this  boat. It is a sculpture."  torn to page 12  BC Hydro native affairs liaison Patrick Kelly of Ihe Stotlo nation opens Ihe Building Better  Relations Multicultural^ forum in the Sechelt Senior* Center.  issues that arose from earlier  workshops. Among other things,  natives said they fell they were  followed in stores, treated rudely by business owners and are  not usually employed by local  businesses even though the  Sechelt band makes up a noticeable portion of the population.  "Maybe it's lime to confront  Ihe Chamber of Commerce with  this perception and the reality  that appears lo be out there in  the workplace and see what we  can do about it," one participant  said.  Another suggested the Chamber of Commerce should staff  an aboriginal liaison person to  help deal with the issues.  A discussion arose regarding  high school work experience  programs and Ihe lack of participation by native students.  Joel Johnstone pholo  Some band members said the  coast needs a program which  targets native youth specifically.  "They don't gel the same  things (non-natives) gel out of  the program...It hasn't been a  positive experience for (native)  kids because they don't feel  Ihey have ownership in il," one  band member said to a former  high school student.  tarn to page 2  Red tide bloom brings warning from fisheries  by Darah Hansen  A red tide bloom in and around the Sunshine Coast waters has closed down shellfish  harvesting until further notice from the federal  fisheries office.  The closure effectively bans the collection  of all bivalve molluscs ��� including clams,  oysters, mussels and scallops ��� by any  method in the areas of Jervis Inlet, Blind Bay,  Saltery Bay, Nelson Island, Hardy Island,  Hotham Sound, Agamemnon Channel,  Egmont, Salmon Inlet, Narrows Inlet and  Sechelt Inlet. Texada Island and Thormanby  Islands are unaffected by the red tide closure.  In a press release, fisheries officer Randy  Webb said the closures were implemented as  a result of unacceptable levels of Paralytic  Shellfish Poison. Red tides, caused by algae  blooms, vary from year to year and between  various locations on Ihe BC coast. Scientists  don't know for certain what causes red tides,  although several factors including water temperature and tidal flushing seem to play a part.  On the Sunshine Coast, serious algae  blooms occurred four years ago but red tide  problems have been relatively minor in this  area since then.  An area like Kingcome Inlet north of Powell River, on Ihe other hand, often has large  algae blooms each spring.

Stchtlt 885-2882  by Sandra Smith  The federal jar is almost  empty for aboriginal training and  employment programs this year.  So, instead of dealing with new  projects, board members of the  Vancouver/Sunshine Coast Aboriginal Management Society  (VSCAMS) took time to re-evaluate their goals and objective* at  a meeting held in Sechelt last  week.  The VSCAMS board, established two years ago, is made up  of volunteers from aboriginal  communities in southwestern BC  who manage federal funds for  native training projecta. Board  members believe the society is  breaking new ground and say  they can respond to the employment and training needs of their  people better than the government departments previously sel  up to do so.  VSCAMS is one of 10 pilot  programs across Canada and represents 10 native bands���Burrard, Squamish, Musqueam,  Tsawwassen, Sechelt, Anderson  Lake, Mt. Currie, Sliammon,  Homalco and Klahoose���as well  as SO native organizations in the  region.

The Sechelt Indian Band is  currently using VSCAM money  to fund 50 per cent of a career  explorations program at Sechelt's  Capilano College campus. The  12-week course, called Ancient  Pathways/New Directions, runs  into December.  Work placements for 18 participants include terms with the  Sechelt Band in their forestry,  social development and landscaping programs. Some participants will work with the Sechelt  detachment of the RCMP, a local  law firm and a market.  "The local business community is incredibly cooperative with  these programs and we've had  quite a good success rate with  Options (another work experience program for both natives  and non-natives)," said Colleen  Rudy, program manager.  BC Hydro's approach to racism illuminated  vUtmcfcnaC^  from page 1  "There's got to be a light at  the end of the tunnel," said  Sechelt councillor Stan Dixon.  "That light at the end of the  tunnel fizzles out when you have  your (trade* or (kill*) tickets and  still can't get a job...not because  there's no jobs, but because of  racism....When a person can't  get a job, after a while he  becomes an alcoholic and the  scenario is there...it creates dysfunction, cruelty, abuse, alcohol  and drugs come into play."  Lori Dixon said it would be  wise for Coast businesses to  develop a new line of thinking.  "One of the big payoffs is our  land claims. We're going to be in  business in a big way and it's in  the interest of the entire Sunshine  Coast for us to do business with  them...Let's start the dance  today," she said.  The forum opened up with a  presentation from BC Hydro's  aboriginal liason person Patrick  Kelly.  Kelly outlined  BC Hydro's new         "open strategy" of  developing "mutually beneficial relationships with aboriginal people" that  the company hopes  will become models  for others to follow.  He admitted the      ������  company  is  not  motivated by socially-conscious  reasons but by "very clear business interests."  Kelly said BC Hydro has  invested between $200 million  and $900 million in a system of  transmisison and distribution  lines that string across 500  reserves belonging to 150 indian  There's got  to be a light  at Ibe end of  the tunnel'  Stan Dixon  bands in BC. He said comprehensive land claims affect 80 per  cent of BC Hydro's system and  would cost the company $10 million to relocate.    Kelly wound his  presentation towards the matter of  doing business  with aboriginal  communities, using  his company as an  example.  The first step is  ��� knowing the history of First Nations  people and the history of their  iand claims in order to learn Ihe  terms of protocol, issues and  interests they have.  In a quick history lesson, he  explained that of 11. aboriginal  language families existing in  Canada, seven exist exclusively  in BC. Of those seven, each is  divided into dialects, of which  there are more than 30 in BC.  And with each language family  comes a unique culture.  "Each of these families are as  different from each other as  Mandarin Chinese are from  Spanish....There's no such thing  as an aboriginal issue. There are  many," Kelly said.  While aboriginal people  account for five per cent of BC's  population, they only account for  1.7 per cenl of BC Hydro's work  force of 6,500 employees.  "So we still have a lot of work  lo do."  Lori Dixon commended Kelly  and BC Hydro for being "on the  cutting edge of this new thinking....The lerm 'level playing  field' is something I've wanted  since 1 was a small child and I  never thought I'd see it in my  lifetime," she said.

Since its creation in early October, a trust  fund in aid of establishing a Coastal drug  and alcohol prevention program for  teenagers ha* collected nearly $2,000.  The trust fiind, set up at the Bank of Montreal in Gibson*, was set up in memory of  16-year-old Jeff Lewis, who died Oct. 1  while under the influence of what's believed  to have been locally-purchased LSD.  Lewis' father, Lome Lewis, said Thursday, Oct. 20 the fund money will be used to  try to discourage drug and alcohol use or  abuse among teenagers on the Coast. Lewis  added lhe organization of the program has  not yet been initiated.  In an earlier interview, the Lewis family  thanked the Sunshine Coast community for  its support in the days and weeks following  Jeff's death. "So many parents are touched  because Jeff could have been their child,"  said Anne Lewis, Jeff's mother.  Both Lome and Anne Lewis say they  want a drug and alcohol program in place on  Ihe Coast lo prevent further tragedy from  occurring on the Coast.  "I don'l ever want another family to go  through this again...Something has to be  done," Anne said.

In fact, the company has  been listed on the exchange in  the past, but a cease-trade order  was placed on Tri-Northern and  the company has been de-listed  from the exchange.  In May of this year, the Tri-  Northern applied to be re-listed  on the exchange. That application was reviewed at the staff  level and a number of questions  were raised.  Tri-Northern did not respond  lo those questions and the file  was closed.  The decision not to pursue  the re-listing was therefore the  decision of Tri-Northern, nol  the Alberta Stock Exchange.  Recently, Tri-Northern has  also made verbal inquiries to  the Alberta Securities Commission about getting the cease-  trade order lifted on the company.  So far, no formal application  has been received.  Comments by Charles  Blakey of the commission in the  Oct. 13 story referred to the  cease-trade order placed on the  company and concerns raised in  regard to potential lifting of that  order and potential re-listing of  Tri-Northern.  We apologize for the error  and regret any confusion it may  have caused.  ,z. ��� _._-- -������- - -.�� Coast News, October 24,1994  news  Turn-out good for Breakaway meeting  by Sandra Smith  The Breakaway facility off Kiwanis Way  in Gibsons was full Friday night as 40 people squeezed in to offer support lo the teen  drug and alcohol centre which shut down last  month.  The four-member board initialed the  meeting to find out who was willing to help  resurect the program. "We're looking for  fresh horses and fresh ideas and people willing to help us implement them," said board  member Brad Quarry.  Board members say fundraising efforts  have exhausted Ihem, noted they've applied  many times to both federal and provincial  governments for funds but always been  denied. Foundations like the United Way  have also turned them down.  Three Breakaway teens attended the  meeting and contributed helpful insight  through their own experiences.  The event was a first introduction for  many of the adults who had some trouble  grasping lhe basic concept of Breakaway.  During the evening, ihe program's purpose was repeatedly spelled ou ��� to provide  a non-using environment where leens, wanting to live clean and sober lives, could feel  safe and find love, support and straight talk  from peers and counsellors.  In Ihe past four years, Breakaway meetings were held daily based on the 12-step of  alcoholics Anonymous. Teens also received  referrals from Breakaway lo other hard-to-  'What comes out of it is  really powerful'  -Ron Girard  gel-into residential treatment centres in BC.  "Whal comes oul of it is really powerful  and they shore each other up," said board  chair Ron Girard.  Adults arrived with a variety of agendas  which led lo a variety of discussions on the  endless subject of drugs and teens, prevention and treatment.  There was talk of rec centres, Christianity  and rock and roll bul the Breakaway teens  quickly reeled Ihe discussion back lo Ihem.  They objected to a suggestion Breakaway  needed to provide entertainment, saying the  acceptance and love at Breakaway was what  had attracted Ihem there.  A sign-up sheel and donation cup were  passed around and relumed full. Board members said a parents group would be organized  soon and Ihe facility would be up and running when Ihey could figure oul how.  "My fear is lhal, when lhal happens, there  will be Ihis sense of okay-ness in the community and we won't be up and running very  long if lhal sense of okay-ness slays," Girard  said.  "The young people would like us to slay  open....whal we need is Ihe consistency of  having (a counsellor) here five days a week  and in the evenings. When that happens, the  group will start lo gel around il, because  they're oul there struggling right  now...When getting straight becomes a priority, they need a place to go....When Ihey  come in, they wanl to see people who've  been where Ihey are at....When they come  through Ihis door, Ihey are whipped.

That's the message  from Ihe Sunshine Coast Recreation Complex Society.  At a meeting in Sechelt on  Oct. 19, the society launched a  lobbying campaign to secure  funding for an $18-million recreation complex planned for  Sechelt.  The group is hoping to capitalize on a funding application  made by the Sechelt Indian Band  for $12 million under the federal  and provincial infrastructure program. So far the application has  met all technical requirements  and now requires only a political  decision to make it reality, said  Band chief Garry Feschuk at the  meeting.  If Ihe application is accepted,  the provincial and federal governments will pay two thirds of  the cost, with the Coast communities contributing the rest. The  complex is planned for a 20-acre  parcel of land behind St. Mary's  Hospital. The band has offered  Ihe property for lease at a nominal fee, said society president  Ann Haywood.  The society is now hoping  local governments, organizations  and individuals will support the  band's proposal for a shared  complex. Under the infrastructure program, the facility would  have to be completed by March  1996.  "ll is crucial for the community to have a united voice and support from local governments,"  said Haywood.

'���-,  Former fisheries officer questions DFO objectives  byMikeO'KeefTe  According to a former Sunshine Coast fisheries officer, the  people of British Columbia are  getting shortchanged by the Department of Fisheries and Oceans  (DFO).  "If people care at all about the  fishery, they will stand up and  demand their money's worth,"  said former enforcement officer  Ross Squire.  For the past six years, Squire  worked for the DFO out of Pender Harbour. He said he resigned  in frustration after the department  gradually stripped him of his  ability to enforce fishing regulations on the Coast.  According to Squire, enforcement on the Sunshine Coast is  "zero," and poaching by commercial and sport fishermen is  out of control.  He noted lhat the Coast is one  of the province's most popular  areas for sport fishing.  "The DFO has been ignoring  the Coast for yean," said Squire.  "Just about every marine species  on the Coasl is suffering from  some kind of poaching."  He said enforcement on the  setting It straight  Last week, the Coasl News  incorrectly reported Ross Squire  had been promoted out of Pender Harbour by the DFO.  In fact, Squire quit.  The Coast News apologizes  for any confusion.  Coast ended when he left in  September, and he doubts that  another officer will be assigned  to Pender Harbour.  However, Squire's former  boss, Norm Lemmen, said the  department is doing all it can to  protect local fish stocks.  At peak times, he said, there  are up to 50 officers patrolling  Vancouver Island and the Georgia Strait. Officers are assigned  to different areasaccording to  need, he added.  Lemmen, chief of conservation for the South Coast District,  said, however, he has no way of  knowing if another officer will be  stationed in Pender Harbour.  There are currently six vacancies in the district, and the  department will not release its  staffing plan until April, he said.  In the meantime, the Pender Harbour office will continue to operate with only a part-time clerk  and no officers.  At one lime, according Squire,  Ihe office was staffed by two full ,.  and one part-time officer, a chartered patroller, and a part-time  clerk. "People who care about the  fishery have to ask for better  enforcement," he said. "If we  remain quiet, more will be taken  away."  But Lemmen says enforcement officers are "working their  individual butts off to get the job  done...In terms of efficiency,  they are doing more than anyone  can expect."  r  SUSSEX  RCALTV  j  fMima umm uuMwauftarHMMaflMnnn)  Home or  .Property  Evaluation  For action not excuses  Call Kenan MacKenzie  885-7810  office  ReformsC  REFORM PARTY OF BRITISH COLUMBIA  POWELL RIVER/ SUNSHINE COAST CONSTITUENCY ASSOCIATION  Formation Meeting  7:30 pm, Thursday 27th October  Senior's Hall, Trail & Medusa, Sechell  Come bring your questions and concerns  Become a forming member and...  be eligible to uotejor our  new leader on 31 December 1994  (cut o///or wiiiwj eligibility is membership by.')!

Case in point is a racism forum held in Sechelt which  attracted 18 people - most of whom are somehow  involved with the issue in an official capacity (band members, teachers, government officials, the RCMP). Virtually  no one from the general public attended. Why not? Is our  apathy really this evident?  To be fair, there is an enormous number of special  interest groups on the Coast, at least one (and often more)  for any given issue. As well, there is a large number of  groups based on the Coast but focussing their attention  elsewhere. These are all run by people dedicated to a certain cause, determined to right certain wrongs, and devoted to changing certain aspects of life. We need people like  this on the Coast.  But racism affects us all. And if there is a group trying  to work through this particular problem for the betterment of the community, then at least a portion of the community could show an interest.  Yes, in this world cursed with social concerns, it's hard  to choose the ones which will make the most difference.  But racism, one might say, is a curse of a different  colour. It's affecting you, it's affecting your children and  it's affecting your children's friends - do something about  it.  Advice offered for  dealing with the DFO  Ross Squire, former Department of Fisheries and  Oceans (DFO) fisheries officer for the Sunshine Coast,  has a few disparaging things to say apparently about the  state of DFO enforcement on the Sunshine Coast - there  isn't any.  And the best response his former boss, Norm Lemmen,  can offer is that Squire may or may not be replaced.  Squire, who now works as a conservation officer for the  province, suggests a grass-roots uprising of support might  be in order. Well, why not?  The Breakaway challenge  There was positive turnout for the Breakaway meeting  Friday. It gave a small hope that maybe the community  really does care.  The challenge now will be to increase the momentum  then keep it moving. Relatively speaking, it's not that big  of a challengc.at least not in compirason to that faced by  the kids trying to get off drugs and alcohol.  letters  Unconscionable  sentencing  Given the recent attention  with regard to the illegal drug  use by young people in our community, I find it unconscionable -  to read in the court notes that a  10-day jail sentence was given to  an individual with eight prior  drug convictions. Such a light  sentence sends absolutely no  message that we as a community  refuse lo tolerate this kind of  repeal drug activity any longer.  It isn't enough for citizens to  declare a zero tolerance on illegal  drugs if our judges don't have  the courage and moral fortitude  to punish these individuals adequately. A 10-day jail sentence  for a ninth drug conviction is  absolutely ridiculous.  It is imperative lhat judges.:  start handing out sentences to  repeat drug offenders that will  keep them in jail and away from  our young people for a long, long  time.  MELANIE SIMPSON  Gibsons  Life not wasted  I am writing in response to the  Sunshine Press "Comment"  headline of Oct. 19 "Dead at 16:  Such a Waste."  I am the young man's grandfather. As such and with his parents consent I would like to make  the following points:  I agree wilh The Press that  Jeff's death was a tragedy but I  can say quite emphatically that  his life was not a waste. Nor will  his family view his death as a  waste if it influences other  youngsters to turn away from  drugs including the so-called  acceptable ones: tobacco, alcohol  and cannabis.  Let me please emphasize to  other parents and grandparents  and yes to you, our local media  that Jeff did not fulfill our misconceived stereotype image of  youngsters who die in this manner. As The Press stated he was  well liked and conscientious. He  was the type of teenager who  stood up for the underdog and  invited younger boys to play  street hockey or basketball with  him, seldom turning them away.  Also he worked hard, as well as  playing hard, whether it was  homework or cutting the grass.  Not once did I hear this boy say  "I'm bored, there's nothing to  do."  What am I trying to say?  To all parents and grandparents - Please do not keep this  death quiel. In fact make it perfectly plain to your youngsters  that there is no such thing as a  "good trip". That every trip is  potential death. Jeff has shown  all of us that it only requires one  "experiment" lo be fatal. There is  no second chance. Explain to  them that the temptation to  experiment is always with us and  that they are the ones who must  say "no". You cannot do it for  them any mote than I, or his parents, could for Jeff.  To society at large: We all  bear some responsibility for this  death and others like it if only by  our complacency. Let's examine  what we can do individually and  collectively to help our youngsters so thai there will be no  more grieving parents, siblings or  grandparents on this Coast.  To you, our local papers -  please write headlines and front  page stories aboul the positive  things that our teens do and not  just the negative. This would  help support their self-esteem.  I would end by wishing God's  blessing on all those who struggle with this situation and especially those who have showered  our family with love and prayers.  JOHN SAUNDERS  Gibsons  Irvines Landing  On Sept. 18,1994, the Irvines  Landing Day Society held its  second annual Irvines Landing  Day. Good weather, record  breaking crowds and the generosity of ihe people of Pender  Harbour made this event a  tremendous success once again.  The Irvines Landing Day  Society would like to lhank all  the individuals who donated Iheir  time and/or goods, the volunteers  who worked throughout the day,  and of course to the people who  turned out to support the Pender  Harbour and Community Health  Centre and St. Mary's Hospital.  It couldn't have been a success  without you.  I rvins Landing Society  Wagging a worried tale about Coast animal control  If it were true the SCRD and SPCA situation  would resolve itself if left unattended, this column  space probably would not be devoted to the issue.  But the problems persist.  On one hand of the debate we have the local  Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, a  non-profit group which has assumed responsibility  for the well being of the Coast's unclaimed or  unwanted domestic pets, i.e., strays. The Sunshine  Coast Regional District and the other Coast municipalities on the other hand assume the responsibility  for collecting said strays within their respective  boundaries.  On the surface this would seem like the basis of a  good - even magnetic - working relationship...one  which would see Coast strays first collected, and  then provided with safe shelter while waiting to be  claimed or adopted.  Below the surface, however, naked SCRD and  SPCA egos become visible, and they bounce off  each other like magnets sharing the same pole.  Almost a year since Ihe firsl growling* of dissatisfaction were heard, a resolution to the dispute is as  elusive as ever: a court case is in progress, backs  remain bristled, and the key players continue stalking circles around each other, stiff-legged and sniffing with lips curled.  And at the heart of this darkness seems to be an  unwillingness on both sides lo compromise. More  than a year ago, tired of cramped quarters, the  SPCA look over control of whal passed for a Gibsons dog pound on Henrey Road. At the lime, lhe  facility was used by Gibsons, Sechelt and the SCRD.  The SCRD was initially supportive of the move -  at least they continued to use the shelter for their  cane raised  impounded animals - until neighbours of the new  compound commenced a complaint campaign.  Gradually then, regional support was withdrawn,  until we stand where we are today ...the SCRD has  stopped using the SPCA shelter completely and has  a lawsuit pending against the society for violations  to lhe regional noise bylaw (Gibsons and Sechelt  continue to use the shelter).  Now, in the place of the SPCA shelter, Ihe SCRD  has resorted to using an established dog kennel facility - Magus Kennels - to house its picked-up strays.  As far as the kennel owners are concerned, there i.s  nothing controversial aboul the situation. They were  approached by a government body wilh a proposition lo keep and care for impounded animals. The  parameters of their involvement have been hashed  out. a contract has been signed, and picked-up animals are provided with decent shelter while waiting  to be claimed.  According to Magus Kennel records, only two  dogs have gone unclaimed as of the end of September, one of which was adopted-out through the kennel and the other was transported to an SPCA shelter  in West Vancouver.  So far, so good. More than two months into the  stuart burnside  use of this new system and regional dog control continues apace with no animals having yet been  destroyed.  According to the Magus agreement with the  SCRD, however, the kennel is only contracted to  keep impounded dogs for seven days, after which  the animals again become a regional district problem. And in this there is scope for things to go awry.  There is already talk the off-Coast SPCA facilities will soon refuse to accepl Coast dogs...they have  strays enough of their own to worry about.  If those shelters do in fact stop accepting off-  Coast animals after iheir seven-day impoundment,  the SCRD will be backed into a comer: with a lawsuit pending against the local shelter, the regional  board will not be able to resume business there without seriously losing face.  What recourse will board members have al this  point? If their only remaining option is indeed to  begin destroying stray dogs, then they may in fact  find they have a bona fide public outcry on their  hands.  Really, the subject of dog control on the Sunshine  Coast most likely stretches back as far as European  memory of the place, and in the last 20 years all the  Coastal governments have acknowledged the growing seriousness of the problem.  But, as of late, none have done anything aboul it  in a meaningful way. And certainly they have done  nothing as a group. Instead the local governing bodies have resorted lo piecemeal, every-government-  for-ilself approaches to dealing with lhe issue and, in  the end, have left Ihe SPCA to sort out its own way  of providing animal shelter.  What we need now is a clear, long-term answer  to the animal control problem. The solution should  include more lhan a seven-day survival period for  unclaimed adoptable dogs and il should incorporate  the services of the SPCA. A simple remedy would  be for the Coast governments to pull together and  build a new, larger facility in a neighbour-free spot  of their choosing and have il staffed by Ihe SPCA.  The local governments could still insist they will  only pay to keep a dog for seven days if they like,  but the SPCA would have the option of keeping the  animals longer at the society's expense.  The SPCA for its part would have to make a few  concesions, like acknowledging that not all animals  are intrinsically adoptable by virtue of their non-  human status. Not to say that the society hasn't had  occassion to destroy an animal or two, but perhaps  they could put a time limit of their own on an animal's impoundment so as not to be running al chronic overcapacity.  Like most human-spawned, human-nurtured and  human-reared problems, dog control has ils solutions, it's jusl a matter of accepting them. It's a matter of putting aside petty differences and doing  what's right, doing that which is best for all, including Ihe animals.

Win at all  costs, regardless of how many little feelings are hurt.  A typical soccer morning in  our house is full of anticipation  and excitement for our son. He is  up early (before everyone else),  has his soccer uniform on, his  breakfast eaten, and is constantly  reminding us that we don't want  to be late for the big game. It's  hard to believe this is the same  kid we have lo coax out of bed  for school every morning.  We arrive at the playing field  a half hour before game time and  he practices hard before the game  starts. The whistle blows for the  game lo begin. There are two  kids extra so someone has to sit  out. My kid is picked to sil out  first - no problem. Half way  through Ihe first half, the coach  sends him in. You can see the  excitement in his face, his  chance, maybe he'll score a goal  or make a big play.  Second half, my kid is side-  readers write  lined again. Now I think - 13  players, 60 minute game and my  kid already sat out IS minutes,  isn't it someone else's turn to sit  out. I sit on the sidelines watching my child shadow the coach  asking "When can I play? When  can I play?" only to be ignored.  Finally after IS minutes, I've had  enough. I walk to the coach. "Are  these kids going to get a chance  to play?" I ask. "They all get  equal lime," he replies. I am too  angry to respond.  After the game I ask my son  "How did you enjoy the game?"  "It was great" he says "only I  would like to play the whole  game like..." (he list about five  players on his team). "How come  I don't get to play Ihe whole  game?" he asks. As a parent, lell  me, what do I say?  In the papers lately we've read  about drug abuse on the Sunshine  Coast and what we can do as parents to help stop it. Education is a  start, recreation for our teenagers  is a start, but I believe we have to  start sooner. Building confidence,  feeling a part of a team and part  of a team's success builds self-  esteem. Low self-esteem is  prevalent in our youths' drug  subculture. Well, low self-esteem  does not happen when we hit  puberty, it is slowly eroded away  throughout out lives. Our chil  dren are nol stupid. They know  when they are constantly silling  out and not playing, that it's  because they are not good  enough or nol as good as other  players on the team.  It doesn't jusl happen in,soc-  cer, it happens in baseball, hockey and in every little town across  Canada.  A lot of coaches are out to win  and if it means sacrificing the  confidence and self-esleem of the  not so athletically gifted in Uie  process, so be il. Bul I, as a parent, will not sil by and walch my  eight year old son's desire to  play, enthusiasm for the game  and self-esteem be crushed.  I urge all parents whose kids  are left standing on the sidelines  to watch the action, don't stand  for it, go to the coach and insist  your child get equal playing time.  If you don't stick up for your  kids, who will. After all, aren't  our kids futures worth more than  winning the game.  BONNIE COULTER  Gibsons  letters  Sporting objections  As a sports fisherman who  dabbles at fly fishing on Chapman Creek using a small barb-  less hook, I feel the article by v  Mike O'Keefe and the editorial  in the Coat News, Oct. 17 failed  to differentiate between legitimate fishers and the 'louts'  using heavy lead treble-hooked  buzz bombs snagging the chum  salmon.  And almost certainly said  'louts' have no licences and no  knowledge of the fishery.  All salmon and steelhead in  all coastal streams are returning  from the ocean to spawn. Incidentally most salmon caught in  the saltchuck are also migrating  to their spawning beds.  Contrary to the article it is I  not legal to catch all salmon in  our creeks.  The only one caught legally  is the coho. The chum or dog  salmon outnumber the coho by  upwards of 30 to one, by my  estimate.  Steelhead, of which only  hatchery fish may be taken, are  almost non-existent. The cutthroat trout, which follow the  salmon up to feed on stray eggs,  ate not to be taken.  I'm pleased to see you devoting the space to addressing this  problem. I think enforcement of  the existing laws and more fisheries officers might help.  And how about a little more  research (by the Coast News) on  the creek itself and the conservation-minded people who fish  it.  The hatchery and its staff  would be a good start.  MILTBLAKELY  Gibsons  Sometimes it's  necessary  In regards to a letter written  and published in the Coast News  titled 'Hitching for trouble', I  would like to present some  points of view that though not  acceptable are nevertheless 'a  reality', creating a need for  'hitching'.  1. Some people are poor  enough financially to the extent  that they are unable to afford  daily bus fare.  2. Some people have disabilities or are on medication which  prevent them the luxury of driving an automobile.  3. Some people are not well-  off financially so as to afford the  asset of being an owner of a  vehicle.  4. Even though it is dangerous to 'hitch' a ride as one can  be raped, beaten up, or mugged,  this possible reality is negated  by the necessity of having to  'hitch' a ride in order to be  where you are supposed to be at  the time you are requested for  attendance, if not in walking distance.  5. On the Sunshine Coast  before the emergence of the first  Gibsons bus, those who could  not afford cab fare had to rely  on hitching as their sole method  of transportation, unless they  had the blessing of friends and  neighbours who were willing to  transport them for charitable  reasons.  This, however, might pose  the problem of people feeling  Ihey are being taken advantage  of as time progresses.  6. Please do not absorb the  notion lhat I am saying it is  alright for teens to 'hitch'. I am,  however, presenting the reality  of the world some people have  to live in.  VESTA BRAINERD  Gibsons  .

''>������'��� ������'��"  The long, skinny young  feline didn't hesitate ��� it wanted  life and winter was coming.  Turns out the feline's decision  was a sound one. A month later  he has broadened out and his  once lusterless coat sports a definite sheen.  His disposition is peaceful,  complemented by a healthy  energy.  The neon sign, visible lo only  such suffering creatures has  been temporarily dimmed.  You might have guessed that  my home has been opened to a  cat who had been abandoned.  Over Ihe years many canines  and felines have found their way  to our door, all of them in Various stages of suffering.  The suffering stems from the  cowardice of unbalanced mem- i  bers of our human society,  humans untouched by the suffer-  ing of others, who have the  power lo ease suffering but  instead deliberately increase it.  Frightening profile - any of you  oul there know somebody who  fits it?  I cannot keep this cat.      t  I have called the SPCA  twice and am listed as ninth on a  waiting list.  They would accept the cat  today with the understanding  that it will be put down almost  immediately.  Whal a hard option to  choose.  The spokesman's helpful  comment was "rely on family  and friends" to save this cat's  life.  I resent beyond words taking  on the abandoned responsibility  of others.  Part of a long term solution  would be for governments to  legislate mandatory spaying and  neutering of all animals owned '  unless acceptable breeding plans  are in place. . -   i  Also, swifter prosecution and  punishment of those less than  valuable members of society  who have been seen or known to  abandon could be instituted.  The condition of our society  is reflected by how we treat life  and I've got to say that I don't  feel too proud of the reflection  I'm seeing.  MOIRA ZEALAND  Sechelt  ������ V" ��� ��� ���  - .. .'.  I   III  - news  Teen  sexual  abuse  project  garners  funds  by Darah Hansen  More money for a support  group aimed at helping adolescent  survivors of sexual abuse on the  Sunshine Coast has brought the  program one step closer to reality.  A donation of $8,000 from the  Vancouver Sun Children's Fund  has been earmarked for the local  Adolescent Survivor Project, program coordinator Trysh Ashby-  Rolls confirmed last week.  The money will be used to  help pay1 the team of counsellors  working with the project as well  as provide for their specialized  training in techniques that best  meet the special needs of  teenaged survivors.  The Vancouver Sun money is  the second grant the group has  received since initialing the project earlier this summer. In June,  Ihe group received $9,387 from  the provincial Ministry of  Women's Equality.  Ashby-Rolls said the project  needs a total of $30,000 to cover  all the costs of the program  including the publication of a  manual outlining the structure of  the program.  Run through the Coast's Community Services office, the Adolescent Survivor Project is a 20-  week program designed for young  women aged 13 to 19.  And according to Ashby-Rolls,  the program is open lo any young  woman who has experienced  "any unwanted sexual act" ���  from sexual abuse in the home to  shaming sexual remarks from  strangers,  "It's right along the line...they  all affect a person," she said,  adding it's important for young  women not to dismiss seemingly  "harmless" events.  Though reaction may differ  from person to person, "What  may look from the outside to be  an insignificant act can actually  have a devastating effect on a person's life," Ashby-Rolls said.  The 20-week program is  scheduled to begin in January and  focuses on support, education and  prevention for the girls involved.  It's designed to help build feelings of self-esteem and self-  capacity so the girls can "function  better in life," Ashby-Rolls said.  The teenage years are a time of  turmoil for any adolescent, she  said. "Add to that the burden of  carrying a secret of child sexual  abuse or date rape and you have a  recipe for, at the very least, low  self-esteem...or, al the very most,  disaster."  Currently, the class list for  January remains open for more  participants. Ashby-Rolls said all  those interested will be given a  chance to meet with the counsellors before ihe program starts to  "check ihem out."  At that time, counsellors will  also determine if this program is  in the individual's besl interests,  she said.  For more information on the  program, Ashby-Rolls, along with  the programs' other counsellors,  will be on hand Nov. 17 at Community Services in Sechelt to  meel with parents and guardians  and answer questions.  Coast News, October 24, 1994  Fire safety     M  SCRD Are inspector Dale Boghean unpacks the first "Learn  Not to Burn" education package going out to all elementary  schools in District #46. Following 18 months seeking  approvals and making initial purchases on individual books,  Boghean's project was boosted by Fire Prevention Canada,  the National Fire Prevention Association and Canadian  Tire's Child Protection Foundation, which paid for the first  set of a three level course. School teachers will pass the  information on to students. Joel Johnstone photo  Ministry of Forests  doubles number  of woodlot licenses  Counsellors will also be talking to students in the schools to  increase awareness of the project.  by Jane Seyd  For would-be tree farmers  who meet provincial standards,  woodlot licenses in BC are  aboul to become more available.  This month, the government  announced plans to double the  current woodlot licence program, which provides leases to  small-scale forestry  operators.  The     province        intends to increase  licences over the next  ihree years from 500  now to a total of  1000. The volume of  timber cut on wood-  lots is also expected  to double from  500,000 cubic metres  to one million cubic  metres annually.  Bill Wright, a woodlot owner  who operates Wilherby Tree  Farm on the Sunshine Coast  says the announcement from the  government is good news.  "It does generate permanent  employment and permanent  careers, long-term," he says.  "It provides me wilh a living  plus the people who work for  me."  Currently, "there's a huge  demand" for woodlot licences  in the province, says Russ Cozens, woodlot licence officer for  the Ministry of Forests in Victoria.  "People like woodlot  licences," says Cozens.  About 500 applications for  woodlots are now sitting on file  with the ministry.  So far, one of the biggest  problems in handing out  licences is the ministry hasn't  had enough staff to manage  them, he says.  'It does  generate  permanent  employment'  -Bill Wright  As part of the new announce- <  mtfiWrMid' forest   service  province-wide will get 20 more  people between now and March  and 52 additional $taff people  next year to manage 'the program. Funding of $2.9 million  is being provided by the provincial Forest Renewal program.  Currently there are four  woodlots licensed in  ihe Sunshine Coast         Forest District, operated   by   Wright,  Tideline Services,  Gambier     Forest  Resources and Harper Logging. Four  more licences will  be handed out locally under the pro-         gram expansion.  One of the reasons the government  is expanding the number of  woodlot licences is to encourage private landowners to bring  their property into forest production.  In order to get a Crown  woodlot licence, an applicant  must usually also offer private  lands towards the operation.  According to Wright, "the  process of getting a woodlot is  not simple."  But it's definitely a benefit lo  have local people managing  Iheir own forestry operations,  he says.  Areas like the Sunshine  Coast - which are close lo existing forestry operations and  infrastructure like log-buying  stations - are ideal for woodlot  operators, says Wright.  Not that running a woodlot is  necessarily an easy occupation.  "It's a small business and  like any small business it's difficult," comments Wright.  Environment ministry 'concerned'  about poor safety at MacBlo mill  from page 1  That chlorine dioxide is toxic to the environment is certain, Robb said, adding, "It's good at  killing things."  But asked if the spill will cause long-term  effects lo the environment, he said it's unlikely  because chlorine and chlorine compounds break  down too quickly.  He added, without proof from further monitoring, he can't be sure. "My guesses have been  wrong before."  Monday's spill was the second of its type at the  MacMillan Bloedel mill in less lhan Ihree years.  In December 1991, environmenl officials investigated a similar spill of 64,000 litres of chlorine  dioxide.  No charges were laid in that incident.  According lo Ihe Powell River conservation  office, several other spills have also been investigated at the 25-year-old mill over the years, resulting in few charges.  Sihota said the Powell River mill's poor safely  record is a concern to his government, "no two  ways aboul it."  PHARMASAVE  It's that  time   $  again!

Although Ray and wife Sue had come  to reside here in Marina Place just five  years ago, it was not the first lime they  had lived here.  From 1945 to 1949 they both taught  in the school, now a heritage site, at  Highway 101 and School Road.  Born in Vancouver, Ray grew up  there and spent many years teaching  school firsl in Gibsons, then on Bowen  Island, and for many years in Burnaby.  He was much respected by his colleagues and pupils and loved by his family for his kindliness and his devotion to  teaching. A friend noted thai Ray, a  wartime member of the Merchant Navy,  had served his peacetime community as  well in his work in Kiwanis and the  Canadian Legion.

Norah Cox, who only took up the  game a year and a half ago, also won  three medals - a gold in doubles; and two  silver in singles and in mixed doubles.

"She loves to sing and is never downhearted when she doesn't win a competition."  The YTV Canada-wide contest and the  PNE competition? "An encouraging  experience," said her dad, "and an exhilarating one for a 13-year-old to be one of  the top 10 in the YTV contest and the  youngest (she reached the minimum age  only a couple of weeks before) to ever be  one of the 16 finalists in the PNE contest.  Since she was three or four years of age  singing has been part of her life and con  tinued in church and school activities."  Now an Elphinstone grade 8 student,  Sarah joins her sister Shevaun, who is in  grade 9. Younger brother, Garrett is in  grade 6 at Langdale. "Lessons? Yes, from  Nikki Webber who saw Sarah's potential  and gave her some training, put her on  the right track," said Brad. "Now she follows a routine of practice at home like  doing scales and singing to her backup  tapes. She has a repertoire of 40 songs.  Right now she takes guitar lessons along  with the practice that lhat requires."  Sarah is looking forward to singing for  her grandparents, Doug and Leona  Shields, upon their 50th wedding anniversary this Nov. 5.

Rotary interacts  to teach  leadership skills  Vancouver District Governor Leigh Higlnbotham, one of  dozens of Roiarians who participated the Gibsons Yacht Club  for the Interact Youth Club leadership training seminar last  week. Joel Johnstone pholo  Specific goals and maintaining a balanced lifestyle are lhe  key ingredients to a success life,  a group of 40 Sunshine Coast  students learned recently.  "You have to believe in order  to achieve," speaker Sonia Moc-  nik told the group which had  gathered at the Gibsons Yacht  Club for Ihe first Rotary Interact  Leadership Training Workshop  to be held in British Columbia.  The group, which consists of  club.members from.Elphinstone,,  Secondary, Chatelech Secondary ,  and Max Cameron Secondary  schools, was formed with the  support of the Rolary clubs in  Gibsons, Sechelt and Powell  River.  The students gathered in Gibsons for Ihe session which  included workshops on leadership, goal selling in a stressful  life, maintaining a balanced life,  and how to improve their public  speaking abilities.  The skills learned at the session will prove lo be invaluable  later in the students' university  and business endeavors, Mocnik  said. Students worked Ihrough  examples of goal selling, discussing problems, some of Ihe  options and how to achieve lhe  results they wanted.  The Interact program is  intended to offer students a  chance to get involved in the  community on a different level,  explained Elphinstone teacher  Leslie Berends who along with  Ellen Wagner have been faculty  advisors for the Gibsons Interact  Club for the past four years.  Berends described ihe group as a  communily service club for students., .... , .,.,,. i       i, if,  "It helps students to learn the  importance of community service...it's good for the teenagers  to see the bigger picture. Rotary  offers a different group of adults  for them to see and identify  with," Berends said.  In the past four years, the  Gibsons club has been involved  in a variety of fund-raising activities including raising money for  a Save the Rainforest campaign  two years ago and money for  relief efforts in Bosnia last year.  Efforts this year are being  concentrated on the Save Ihe  Children program in Rwanda  while the studenls are also  involved in the Christmas Elves  food drive as well as helping Ihe  Rotary Club with its upcoming  television auction.  mWt.  4th Annual  j JKU 1 /VK Y on Cable 11  ��AUCTION  Saturday, November 5th  5pm-11:30pm  maki: A Bin ��� MAKF A Bin ��� maki: A Bin ��� maki: A Bin  Pre-registration necessary for  Gibsons carnival-style Hallowe'en  Pre-registration is required for the carnival-style  alternative to Hallowe'en at Gibsons' Christian  Life Assembly Church Oct. 31.

Bolh foresters and tree hug-  gers alike are encouraged to join  "innovative" Vancouver Island  forester Merv Wilkinson this  Thursday (Oct. 27) lo talk about  developing a "wholistic working  forest" on the Sunshine Coast.  The event is sponsored'by the  Elphinstone Living Forest Society and the Raging Grannies.  Wilkinson has logged his 136  acre tree farm nine times since  1938 and still has a healthy forest to boot.  He is well known by both  foresters and environmentalists  for his philosophy of sustainable, selective logging practices.  "He's considered the grandfather of wholistic forestry,"  said Society spokeswoman Jan  Brinton.  She added Ihe sponsors hope  people from all walks of life,  especially forest workers, will  participate.  "We don't want it to be an  'us and them' kind of thing. We  know we need forest workers to  have a working forest....We  hope we can work together from  now on and work out something  lo keep us a forest communtiy  rather than a subdivision of  Vancouver."

And this year the program has been  expanded to include not only the Gibsons  Chamber of Commerce but the Sechelt and  Pender Hsrbour Chambers of Commerce as  well.  The Chambers of Commerce are sponsoring and promoting the program in an effort  to provide incentive for shoppers to keep  their business on the Sunshine Coast.  roberls creek  Eighty-six people look oul $1,000 loans  last year and Gibsons branch manager  Nancy Meyer expects that number to double  at the least.  "We're looking at a larger number  because now there's involvement on the  whole Sunshine Coast...but a lot depends on  how many merchants get involved," Meyer  said.  "The real drawing point is who offers  their wares."  She said $78,000 of the $86,000 worth of  Christmas cash certificates were cashed in at  local merchants last year.  That was higher than expected, based on  other BC communities of the same size.  About a third of the loans were paid back  by the June 30 deadline and the Credit  Union is collecting the rest through monthly  pay-back schemes.  Most people aim to pay their loan back  by November so they can take out Christmas  loans again this year, she said.  Meyer noted two loan recipients seem to  have skipped out on their agreements.

Bul I didn't know  Belly very well, obviously.  Twelve Festivals of the Written Arts have  taken place in Sechelt since that meeting,  each one, if it's possible, bigger and better  than the one before.  The chain of volunteers has grown enormously since the first festival but there  was/is only one Betty Keller. I'm trying in  my own clumsy way lo say: you will be  missed, Betty. No doubt the festival will go  on, but I'm thinking there will be a certain  halhnoon happenings  something missing from it.

At die school  A new fundraising project is  about to get underway at Halfmoon Bay school, one which  will be of interest to many. The  idea is that ceramic tiles of various sizes will be on sale and the1'  tiles will have names of contributors fired and designed by Joan  Clarkson at Halfmoon Ceramics.  Other ideas would be for  companies to have their name  on a tile, or maybe a memorial  for example.  There are many possibilities  for this project, but the bottom  line is that the tiles will be used  on part of the wall of the new  hallway at the school.  Your name could be on that  wall for many years to come. If  ydu would like more information call either the school or Ear-  lene Cameron at 885-0928.

A new women's centre, run  by the Sunshine Coast Women's  Resource Society, opens this  Friday on Wharf Road in  Sechelt.  The result of several years'  planning by the society, the  women's centre is meant to be a  place where women can go to  get information, be referred to  social service agencies, receive  support or simply hang out, says  Carol Stewart, centre coordinator.  "People really need a place lo  connect with other women," she  says.  A small library at the centre  will house material focusing on  women's issues, health, parenting and money.  Women can drop in from 1  pm to 5 pm, Monday to Thursday.  The centre also plans to have  a video and discussion series on  topics like women and violence.  It will also hold public coffee  house gatherings featuring performances by local women.  The centre is funded by a  grant for $38,000 from the Ministry of Women's Equality and  will be run as a feminist organization, says Stewart.  An open house, for both men  and women, will be held Friday  from 2 pm to 10 pm at the centre, 5645 Wharf Road.  y  ..���..��.��. p.  -Y- Coast News, October 24,1994  11  leisure  Schutz poses  an artistic puzzle  by Jane Seyd  With word fragments half  painted over, floating diagrams of  coils and gears and ghostly  images which seem to lie just  below the surface of pictures,  Dean Schutz's art - on display at  the Quay Gallery in Gibsons -  offers a set of unusual hieroglyphics from the contemporary  world.  Several   of   the      mages in Schutz's  bodied sentences float by: "Buy  your vegetables from truck farmers who advertise with hand-lettered signs", "Pay your bills on  lime", "Slow dance."  It's cryptic and ambiguous  material, but that's a big part of  its appeal.  The influence of Schutz's  background in experimental filmmaking,  which  he  studied at the Emily  Carr College of Art, is  work are ones we've  'I'm Interested evident in the barrage  seen before: in a high  school science text, a  child's picture book,  or sheet music resting  on top of a piano.  With Schutz's layering and juxtaposition  of material, however,  conventional meanings seem to shift and change,  take on ironies or be called into  question.  That's part of what makes this  exhibit so fascinating.  In one piece, a technical diagram of a coil sits in the middle  of the picture. There is a word  "Specifications" and a series of  blank lines. Underneath, a sentence in a old-fashioned typestyle  reads, "This does not bring any  prizes, but it is nevertheless an  interesting way to spend twenty  minutes."  In others, Ihere are algebraic  signs, musical scores, the picture  of an oak tree or a child's marching band. They are suspended  over other images, which might  be plans or diagrams or maps or  simply the strokes of the paint  brush creating patterns. Disem-  in languages  that I dont  understand'  of layered images,  which also conveys a  sense of modem information overload.  These days, "every-  ���Dean Scbutz thing's blasted at you  on TV and in advertis-     ing," says Schutz, 29.  "A lot of the time you  don't even focus on them."  When he switched to painting  in the final year of art school, "I'd  go to the library and pull out  books at random," says Schutz.  "I'd just see heaps of images."  One of the interesting uncertainties in Schutz's work concerns  whether or not the images are  supposed to carry particular  meanings and to what extent the  work simply involves the relationships between visually-  intriguing surfaces. "I'm interested in languages that I don't  understand," says Schutz.  In the case of mathematical  equations, for instance, "I don't  understand it but it looks beautiful," he comments. "You have a  wall of intense calculus and it  looks very nice."  "You can read into it things  McLeod (de)parts...  he's Bourne again  Dean Shutz  that may or may not be there.''  Throwing interpretation further into question is the seeming  voice of authority in the school-  book typeface and imperative  tone in the fragments of sentences, which might be making  profound statements, but could  just as easily be poking fun at the  notion of "serious artwork."  Art for the post-modern Gen  eration X? Maybe.  As Schutz himself comments  in one of his pieces, "Enigma  make good games. They aren't  popular any more, but there was a  time when they were a rage."  The show on now at the Quay  Gallery Is Schutz's first solo  exhibit. It runs from now until  Nov. 16. A reception will be held  al lhe gallery Oct 28 at 7:30p.m.  Bill Bourne and Shannon  Johnson arecoming to the Sunshine Coast. Bill Bourne is the  founder of Bourne and Macleod  and a Juno Award winning  singer/songwriter with a solid  grounding in roots music.  The great grandson of Iceland's Poet Laureate, Stefan G.  Stefansson, he grew up in rural  Alberta. He was influenced by  old time music, Simon and Gar-  funkel, Bob Dylan, Mississippi  John Hurt and Gordon Lightfoot.  Later he began writing and  playing his own songs. His first  recognition came in the '80s  when he toured with Scotland's  Tannahill Weavers. This led to  the creation of Bourne and  MacLeod and the release of the  high praised album, Dance and  Celebrate. They released a second album, Moonlight Dancers,  but Bourne, a fiercely independent musician, found the compromise of the recording industry  unacceptable.  He broke free from his recording contract and returned to  what he describes as "the fertile  ground of musical autonomy."  Shannon Johnson began to  play the violin at the age of three  and started her professional  Mm series  career at the tender age of eight.  Immersing herself in the study of  classical violin, at the same time  she performed traditional fiddle  music with her family band in  concert and dance halls throughout the country. The result is a  well rounded musician whose  music displays depth and superb  taste.  The combination of these two  artists creates the magic of musical collaboration. Bill Bourne's  music possesses a simplicity of  structure coupled with a transcendent lyrical style. Heroes of  hope, mythical characters and  spiritual overtones abound in his  writing. Shannon Johnson supports him from every side. Her  violin and vocal harmonies are  simple yet mystical, filling the  spaces left by Bournes brilliant  poetic songs.  With the recent release of  their new album, Dear Madonna,  Bill Bourne and Shannon Johnson take to the stage at the  Roberts Creek Hall, Thuraday,  Nov. 3 at 8 pm. Tickets available  from Coast Books, Roberts  Creek General Store, Scott's  Music and Out of Time the  Bizarre Bazaar. For information  and reservations call 886-0485.  ontheartsheat  There will be a reception at the arts centre  Saturday for all the artists who had work  selected for the View 16 annual Juried  Show.

'  The Classic Japanese film Ugetsu Monogatari is the next offering  from the Wednesday night Cinematheque Touring Series. A work of  unsurpassed lyricism and emotional power, it is considered by many  to be Kendi Mizohuchi's masterpiece, and is frequently cited as one  of the greatest films ever made.  During the feudal wars of the 16th Century, an ambitious village  potter abandons his devoted wife for the wealth of the city and the  illicit pleasures of a ghost woman. Only too late does he realize that  nothing he has gained is worth the love he has forsaken.  Ugetsu is simultaneously realistic, allegorical and supernatural  and has a structure based on classical Noh drama; shot by premier  cinematographer Kazuo Miyagawa, the master of camera tracking  who also photographed Kurosawa's Rashomon, it makes magnificent  use of elaborate, panoramic, long take sequence shots and attests to  Mizoguchi's characteristic concern for the plight of Women which is  also very much in evidence.  This film will be^howpi at ihe Sunshine Coast Arts Centre on  Wednesday, Oct. 26 at 8 flm. $7.50 at the door.  Frugality puts passion over financial pursuits  n-ompagel  Stevens delivers that kind of  living authenticity in his  work, whether it's a 12  foot wood carving transported to  a gallery by plunking it overboard and floating it to shore, or  an abstract painting with dribbles  of red wine spilled across it. That  causes some potential buyers to  tum away. But Stevens views a  piece in all ils entirety, wine  spills and all. It's simply his  lifestyle flowing into his art.  And there's more than a few  willing to pay him thousands for  it. Particularly his wood sculptures which can halt streams of  foot traffic and cause them to  stand silently and stare.  His work can be found in the  living rooms of both the famous  and the non-famous as he trades  his way up and down the coast  and gets commissioned to create  pieces. His work is among the  collections of Princess Anne, in  the foyer of Swan's Pub and  Gallery in Victoria, in a New  Westminster shopping mall, on  Ihe front cover of David Foster's  first album and even carved inlo  Bruno Gerussi's front door.  It also stands tall and proud in  the form of Cedar Woman on  Meares Island, Ihe welcome sign  at a wesl coast tribal park, another sign in Ahousat and a  cemelary sign in Ucluelet.  More than a few head busts  have been traded for denial work,  lawyer's fees and boat repairs  over the years. He can put a mystery into a woman's face which  make his portrait carvings stand  alone.  Stevens mingles his love for  abstraction with Ihe curvatures of  human shapes, aiming to make  his sculptures multi-sensory "so  you can hear it wilh your eyes"  and yet identifiable.  "Some of Ihem are totally  abstract, for want of a better  word. They don'l represent anything in particular but they hint  like crazy. All Ihose curves are  inside and outside of us all."  Other works he keeps within  some self-defined limits for fear  of losing people by going over  the edge.  "Often, the average person  must find something they can  recognize, like an animal, vegetable or a human shape. If it  isn't one of those three things, it  leaves them cold."  A low-cost lifestyle of rice  and beans and living aboard  allows this West Coast artist to  be driven by his passion rather  than financial demands.  His big expenses consist  mainly of batteries, diesel fuel  and art supplies and his thrifty  sense saves him thousands of  dollars.  "I'm getting by on so little.  Somebody has to be free. I  almost feel guilty being so  happy."  It hasn't all been smooth sailing, however.  Stevens is just beginning to  feel the sails fill again after a  traumatic ship wreck left him  stranded on a Mexican beach five  years ago.  His frugal lifestyle allows him  the luxury of turning down a  $10,000 project to carve a commercial sign in Tofino.  "I'd rather be poor with a bottle of wine and doing my paintings than be out there carving a  crummy commercial sign."  He says he's always had a  love for Gibsons where locals  helped him build a boat in 1980.  He's interested in create a sculp- |f  lure here and possibly holding an  art show.  For the next few months, he is  content to live with the fishermen !  on the wharf and keep his General Delivery address here while he  gets his vessel shipshape. Then  he will "go where it's wild", drop  anchor for the winter, hole up  inside the cabin and go nuts with  his art.  7Z>*-Lecatab!!

For ihe past three years, the  band has dished out ils unique  brand of Celtic rock and roll at  the annual Roberts Creek masquerade dance. This year's  dance will begin at 9 pm on Saturday, Oct. 29. Tickets are $15  and are available at Scott's  Music in Sechelt, the Roberts  Creek Store, and Coast Books  in Gibsons.  Even though their album,  Keep the Head, has garnered  international recognition, the  band will make a poinl of playing the small-town hall, said  singer Dennis Crews.  "Roberls Creek is like an  institution for us now," said  Crews in an interview. "We  wouldn't dream of missing it."  Crews said the band rescheduled the shooting of ils second  video in order to squeeze in the  gig. He said the friendly,  relaxed atmosphere of the  Roberts Creek hall takes the  band back to its roots in the  Vancouver pub scene.  While Ihe band started as a  jam session and quickly developed into one of the most popular Celtic acts in Canada, Crews  insists the Stoaters is not just  another Celtic band.  Although their roots are in  traditional Scotch and Irish folk  music, and they use some traditional instruments, their sound  is high-energy rock and roll, he  said- ..,,'. .   ,  ���.... i, i,, i,  " It is that rockjapd-roli eie-/  ment that busts loose in 'Mail'  venues like Roberts Creek, said  Crews.  "While touring, we always  have to be promoting our  album," he said. "We play our  set and we sell our goods, in  Roberts Creek we feel like we  can let loose and do our own  thing. The people there are really cool, and receptive."  Crews said the Hallowe'en  dances lake the band back to a  time "before the lawyers, contracts, and business, when Ihe  band was just getting up and  singing and getting the audience  singing and dancing as well."  The band's beginnings were  so casual that its members never  bothered lo name it, said Crews.  The name Stoaters came from a  friend who visited Vancouver  from Glasgow, Scotland a few  years ago. The visitor used Ihe  Glasgow-slang term to describe  the band and the name stuck.

Crews said the lerm can be  used to mean almost anything  bul is most often used in a complimentary way ��� particularly  when describing a member of  the opposite sex.  Explaining Ihe band's musical style and influences is difficult lo do, and Crews doesn't  bother to try.  "I'm just a song writer," he  said. "I let the public and the  media decide what type of  music we're playing. We do  whal we do, and if the public  accepts il, that's great. If nol,  we'll continue doing it anyway."

For the past few years, the  league has sold banners as a  means of fundraising. For $500,  a business or group can have its  logo placed on a three-foot-by-  three-foot banner and hung from  the rafters inside the arena.  The league has displayed the  banners without a formal agreement with the recreation committee, which operates the facility.  Bul the municipal finance committee would like that to change.  The committee has advised  council to allow the banners lo  remain at least until the end of  this year, when an agreement can  be reached.  Sechelt finance director Sam  Weller said the issue stems from  the fact that the league is only a  tenant at the arena, which is  owned by the municipality. Normally, municipalities sell advertising space on the boards of  hockey links, with revenue going  to the arena. There is currently  no advertising on the Sechelt  boards, and the municipality  might ask the league for a share  of its revenue in the new year,  said Weller.  But league president Walter  Tripp said minor hockey is  already paying as much as it is  willing to pay for ice time.

The local league needs the  extra revenue from banners to  offset that extra cost, he said.  Last year, the banners raised  about $18,000, which Tripp said  barely kept the league afloat.  Insurance costs alone are over  $10,000 per year and rising, he  said. "We certainly have no  intention of taking those banners  down," said Tripp. "They are  absolutely crucial to our organization. Without them, there  would literally be no minor hockey on the Coast."  If the league were to lose the  revenue from its banners, it  would be forced to raise registration fees, which Tripp says are  already as high as they can go.  He said registration pays for the  ice time and "puts a small dent in  file pholo  insurance," but all other expenses  are met through fundraising.  Tripp said he is confident that  an agreement can be reached  with the municipality, which, he  said, has supported minor hockey  in the past. "The [municipal]  accountant is looking for a way  to cut the deficit at the arena, but  minor hockey is not the place to  look," said Tripp. "We're already  paying as much as we're going to  pay."  Coast minor hockey becoming a privilege?  byMlkeO'KeelTe  Next year is "crunch time" for  minor hockey on the Sunshine  Coast, the league president has  warned.  There are currently over 300  young people registered in the  Sunshine Coast league and the  demand is rising steadily, said,  president Walter Tripp. The  league accepted another 60 players ihis year, but it took a great  deal of creative scheduling to fit  them in, said Tripp, adding that  next, year's players might not be  so lucky.  Other user groups, such as  figure skating and adult hockey,  had to change their schedules to  accommodate this year's youngsters. But Tripp said those groups  cannot be pushed any farther.  "We have a verbal agreement  with the other groups that, if  there is no new ice next year, we  will not expand our teams," said  Tripp. "If we push the adult players any later [into the evening],  they will fall off the edge, and  the municipality needs those  players because they pay twice as  much for ice time.  "The other groups really went  oul on a limb to help us, and we  can only infringe so much."  Currently, the only ice surface' growth for Sechelt  oh the Coast is in the Sechelt w ��'" �����"< ����� .****  arena. The minor league has  pushed adult ice time back to 10  pm. "It is unfortunate, but the  group lhat will most likely fall  into the void is the 16 to 17-year-  old midgets," said Tripp. "These  are the guys we would like to  keep off the streets."  Tripp said the teams are  already using the bare minimum  ice time, and there is no way to  create additional game slots. He  said the older players will be  hardest hit because they require  more time per game.  Tripp said the league and  other users groups have done all  they can to improve the situation,  "Now the ball is in the municipality's court to build a new ice  surface." He said the projected  is "astronomical," and one sheet of ice is simply not enough to service the  entire peninsula.  A new recreation centre,  including a skating rink, is  planned for Sechelt, using money  from the federal and provincial  infrastructure program. However,  Ihe funding has yet to be secured  and it is not known when the  facility will be built.  Tripp commended the munici-  . pality and the arena staff for their  .help in accommodating the new  ���players.  "Never in our wildest dreams  did we think we could get those  kids in," said Tripp. "The community really pulled together,  and council deserves a pat on the  back."  i>-  wwwm  .-%cqypwi$  QwHr^fe*Hm'4,  MARINA  TOTAL SHOPPING  7DAYSAWEEK  All Chevron Products  883-2253  ssKwess  MADEIRA  MARINA  BB3-B2G6  TzseKS/mcw  Pender Harbour I  Golf Course  Visitors Welcome  1/2 Mile Nonh of Garden Bay Rd.

As provincial funding for education grows scarce, sports and  other extracurricular activities are  the first to suffer, said Elphinstone principal Martyn Wilson  last week. Lately, students have  been forced to rely on independent fundraising to keep their  teams afloat, he said.  "Quite frankly, we have never  had enough money for teams to  afford to travel, and the situation  is getting gradually worse," said  Wilson. "Provincial funding for  education has been deteriorating  for the past 12 years, lo the poinl  where we are chronically underfunded."  Wilson said the school's first  priority is to provide adequate  teachers and leaching supplies.  Sports and other activities gel  whatever is left over. According  to the principal, Ihe school can  afford only the ba<i'* <ports supplies, and students must help  with uniforms and travel costs.  Travel is particularly expensive for teams on the Coast,  because they must travel great  distances to compete on Ihe  Lower Mainland and Vancouver  Island, said Wilson. Travelling  teams have lo pay for bus rentals,  ferry tickets, accommodations,  and substitute teachers, he said.  Last year, the high-school  froze all sports travel until donations from the community made  up the needed funds. Wilson said  this year's teams are working  together to raise their travel costs,  and that tax-deductible donations  from businesses and individuals  are always welcome.  "We have three options for  dealing with the lack of funding,"  said Wilson. "The first is to face  Ihe problem and live with our  limitations; another is to raise  school taxes; and the third is to  keep asking for donations to keep  our teams going."  Wilson said students can do  only a limited amount of  fundraising on their own because  they must be supervised, and  teachers are becoming reluctant  to volunteer their spare time.  With about one quarter of Ihe  740 students being "very, very  involved in sports," Wilson said  it is important to keep the teams  well equipped.  He said sports are a crucial  part of the school curriculum  because they teach students  sportsmanship and help develop  self-control and discipline.

The after-effects  of winning il all have definitely  led to a contentment and a complacency. This, added to the fact  thai everyone wants to knock off  the champs, has gotten Gibsons  off to a bumpy start.  Heading into week six, the  Pigs were at 2 wins and 3 losses.  They lost their first two games to  the Rowers and the Capilano  B's. Their first win came at the  expense of the Rowers. They lost  the next game to the Capilano  A's and lastly, beat the Kats two  weeks ago.  This season, so far, has been  one of transition for Gibsons.  Eight of last year's starters  haven't returned. This takes its  toll in experience and we have  yet to play with the same lineup  twice. Nevertheless, all of this is  coming along with a more consistent effort and roster.  The Oct. IS weekend, the  Pigs were at home to play the  Ex-Brits. The Brits are a team  that is successful when it uses its  size in the pack to methodically  move the ball downfield.

A dull morning gave way  when the clouds parted and  allowed the sun through to wake  up the locals, who had slept the  first 15 minutes of the game  away, and found that they were  behind 3 - 0.  Slowly    but  surely        Ihey      ���������  fought back and,  with  about  10  minutes remaining in the half,  they scored after  some nice work  by the forwards  who won three       ^~^~  quick rucks deep  in Brit territory before Stu  Frizzell finished off with his second try in as many weeks.  After all of their hard work to  gain the momentum, the Pigs  relaxed, and the Brits promptly  capitalized on some sloppy  defensive play to score on the  outside. 10 ��� 7 Brits.

The ensuing penalty kick by  Drew Murphy made it level at  10.  The Brits started quickly in  the second half and were up 15 -  10 when their  ��������� pack finished off  some strong forward play with a  score in the corner.  It was here  that the Gibsons  forwards took the  ������"~~"~ game away from  the visitors. With  improved lineout work and successful second-phase play, the  locals started to really pressure  the opposition.  After a couple of close calls,  Bill Henderson finally gave the  Pigs the lead on a greal individual run off a scrum from 10 yards  The tendency for Gibsons to  relax showed up again and Ihe  Brits scored immediately lo  snatch the lead in a see-saw battle. The Brit winger crashed  through Ihe middle for a long run  up the centre of the field before  giving the ball up to his support  and a score under the posts. It  was now 22-17 for the visitors.  Gibsons got stronger as the  game went on. The weight of the  Pigs' resolve started to wear on  the opposition as they never got  out of their end again. The Pigs  earned the lead from a penalty.  The Brits argued the call and  when the referee moved them  back a subsequent 10 yards, Jeff  Townsend took advantage of the  confusion lo score what turned  out to be the winning try.  Mr. Townsend later rounded  out the scoring with another try  to make the final score 29 - 22  and bring the Pigs back to a .500  record.  out. 17-15  Pigs  pigs schedule  i  VRC  location  Date  Oct. 29  Brockton  Nov. 5  Scribes  Trout Lake  Nov. 12  Brit Lions  Gibsons  Nov. 19  VRC  Brockton  Nov. 26  Capilano 'B'  Klahanie  Dec. 3  Brit Lions  Clinton  Dec. 10  Capilano 'B'  Gibsons  Dec. 17  Makeup game  Jan. 7  Makeup game  Jan.14  Makeup game  Jan. 21  Brit Lions  Clinton  Jan. 28  Meralomas  Gibsons  Feb. 4  Capilano 'B'  Gibsons  Feb.11  Capilano 'B'  Klahanie  Feb.18  VRC  Brockton or Winona  Feb. 25  Brit Lions  Clinton  Mar. 4  Scribes  Gibsons  Mar. 11  Capilano 'A'  Gibsons  Mar. 18  VRC  Gibsons  Mar. 25  Kats  Gibsons  Take TIME OUT and join us for  MONDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL  with QBI ��� 6pm SHARP  0( lOSHK 21  HOUSTON OILERS  AT  PHILADELPHIA EAGLES  dc here, early for PLAY MAKERS!

Suzuki also  came to Gibsons to interview  Mayor Diane Strom, who recently objected to the provincial government restricting the industrial  tax rate of Howe Sound Pulp and  Paper.  Also on the Coast last week  was NDP Leader Mike Harcourt,  who toured the Coast and  addressed the Sechelt and District Chamber of Commerce.

In Roberts Creek you can still  buy a house on five acres for  slightly less than $200,000, or  100 feet of waterfront with no  house for $170,000 and there are  still a few lots for under  $30,000.  10 YEARS AGO  It was a stormy meeting on  October 18 when Area E representative Director Jim Gurney  voiced the dissatisfactions of the  area wilh recent boundary extensions proposed by Gibsons  Town Planner Rob Buchan and  accepted by council.  The national chief of the  National Indian Brotherhood  was in Sechelt last week and his  message to the chief and council  of the Sechell Indian Band was  exactly what they wanted to hear  in their struggle lo gain self-government.  sechelt council notes  A portion of a large chum  salmon producing stream on the  mainland coast, which has been  designated as the new John Daly  Nature Park, will have its official dedication on Saturday,  October 27 at 2 pm at Garden  Bay on the Sechelt Peninsula.  1$ YEARS AGO  Lyn Vernon made her debut  as a soprano in Cavelleria Rusti-  cana on October 13 at the Queen  Elizabeth Theatre in Vancouver.  Lillian "Lil" Ewart, next door  neighbour of Hubert Evans for  SO years and summer resident of  the Roberts Creek community  since the early years of the century, died in St. Mary's Hospital  on October 5.  Regional board directors are  unanimous in Iheir misgivings  about the discussion paper from  Ihe provincial government on  Regional Government Reform.

Lei's do  it in a controlled environment."  Cash-ln-Ueu of parking  Municipal staff are drafting a bylaw for  consideration by council which will allow  developers to pay the district money In lieu of  required parking spaces in new downlown  projects. Parking space requirements will be  forgiven by the district at a cost of $5,000  each.  Councillor Ray Rempel said the idea is not  without problems. "It's going to impact on  the business nexl door," he said. "That's a  concern that's been voiced to me by the business community."  Mayor Earl Basse said the goal of new  regulation is to pot money in reserve so the  municipality can eventually build a parkade  which wilt allow a greater parking density on  less land. "This kind of cash in lieu is not just  so people can pay to get out of providing  parking," he said.

The Sunshine Coast Injury  Prevention Coalition has united a  broad range of local groups to  discuss public safety and create a  united strategy for injury prevention. Organized by the Coast-  Garibaldi Heallh Unit, the group  met for Ihe second time in Gibsons on Oct. 20.  By uniting groups concerned  with safety, the coalition hopes  to forge a more effective, grassroots approach to injury prevention, said Diane Read, nursing  administrator for the heallh unit.  She said the coalition was  formed in response to unusually-  high accident rales on the Coast.  "Unintentional injury is the  number-one cause of death for  people aged 24 and under on the  Coasl," said Read in an interview. "That is jusl the lip of Ihe  iceberg because only a small percentage of accidents result in  dealh."  Read said Ihe coalition's primary motive is lo prevent accidental injuries and dealh by forging "unlraditional partnerships"  among as many people and organizations as possible.  Representatives of the local  police and fire departments, the  Coast Guard, the BC Ferry  Corp., Ihe Howe Sound Pulp and  Paper mill, the school district,  and other concerned groups  attended last week's meeting,  and Read hopes to draw more  groups in the future.  By working together, all  groups will benefit from shared  information and discussion, said  Read, adding that response to the  first Iwo meetings has been "very  encouraging."  Each group brings a different  perspective and expertise to the  meetings, said Read. The expected result is a broader approach to  prevention, geared specifically to  local needs, she said.  "Any program that is made  locally will be more effective  because it belongs to us," said  Read. "Together, we can go a lot  further and have more impaci,  without spending more time as  individuals."  Coordinator Mary Jo O'Kro-  neg said the coalition is spearheading a "communily thrust"  toward a safer environmenl on  the Coasl. "The only people who  can create change in this community is the community itself," she  said. "Our aim is lo make members of the community aware of  the issues, and lo get ihem working together for a solution."  O'Kroneg said committees  will be formed lo investigate  safety needs along the Coast and  to develop programs to fit ihose  needs.  Mike Thomsen, a research  officer with the Office for Injury  Prevention, said the local coalition reflects the provincial government's move toward community-based heallh care.  Thomsen presented some  local accident statistics, in comparison with provincial averages.  The Coast "leads the pack" in  injuries due to falls, he said,  adding that rates of hospitalization and death due to other accidental causes on the Coast are  also higher lhan average.

Accident rates also  (end to be higher in communities  with lower average incomes.  Sechelt RCMP Staff Sergeant  Cam Reid said he joined the  Treaty commissioner resigns  by Darah Hansen  The head of the BC Treaty  Commission has resigned, saying he's done what he set oul to  do.  Charles Connaghan announced his resignation as chief  commissioner of the treaty commission Oct. 14 at a summit  meeting with several leaders of  the BC First Nations.  At that time, he said he  intends to step down from the  position December 31,1994.  "Nobody pushed me, I'm not  mad at anyone...! feel I've made  as much contribution as I can to  the [treaty] process," Connaghan said in an interview last  week in explanation of the  announcement.  "It's just time to move on."  Connaghan was appointed by  the provincial government to the  lead the treaty commission in  April, 1993.  Along with a five-person  team of commissioners, his job  was to organize a process of  land claims negotiations acceptable to both the BC First  Nations and federal and provincial governments.  Since its creation, the commission has accepted 43 statements of intent to negotiate from  various native bands in the  province, including the Sechelt  Indian Band.  in last week's interview,  Connaghan said several of the  land claim cases will be ready to  negotiate before the end of the  year.  "My biggest regret is that I  won't be around to put my signature on the first treaty," he  said.  Connaghan said he does not  anticipate any problems within  the commission resulting from  his resignation, promising "business as usual" until a replace-1  ment for his position is found.  Connaghan said he plans to  return to a consulting business  in the industrial relations field in  Vancouver in the new year.  Meanwhile, the Sechelt Indian Band was recently declared  ready lo start land claims talks  by the treaty commission.  They are now waiting on the  federal and provincial negotiations teams which have indicated they will be ready to start by  November.  Sechelt ready to enact  municipal noise bylaw  by Jane Seyd  Shhhh!  That's the message from  Sechelt Council to late night  revellers or the guy next door  who won't quit running his  power saw on Sunday night.  Under the district's new  noise bylaw - given third reading on Wednesday - the cone of  silence is descending.  According lo Ihe new rules,  any undue howling, barking,  hum of generators, buzz of  power tools, whine of jet skis  and stereo blasts are certainly  nol appreciated by Ihe district,  particularly when people are  Irying lo sleep.  Contractors who want lo  keep Ihose saw blades and  rolors going on Sundays and  holidays will also find themselves out of luck.  In facl, the new regulations  aren't a lot different than  Sechelt's previous noise  bylaws. In the new rules, however, the definition of noise is  CLEAR  THE AIR  specifically sel out as a sound  which "unreasonably disturbs  the peace" of a particular neighbourhood.  The bylaw covers both  industrial and residential areas,  but the definition of what's an  "unreasonable" noise could be  different, depending on where  you are.  No specific decibel range is  included in the bylaw, because  equipment needed to monitor it  would be too expensive, said  Michael Vaughan, municipal  clerk.  Usually the bylaw would be  enforced in cases where complaints about Ihe noise have  been lodged.  For those who disagree Iheir  5 a.m. trumpet practice i.s an  unreasonable assault on Ihe  cars, ultimate interpretation will  be Ihe duly of the courts.
