For the prosecution, Corporal Nelson^pf the RCMP told the
Magistrate he bad received a
call Feb. 10 from a resident
cbmplaining of a disturbance
in the • Nickerspn home.    \
■ As the accused had left the
home during the phone call, the
police advised the, neighbour
check with Mrs. Nickerson who
subsequently lodged a complaint with the pol|ce,
For his defence, Nickerson
claimed he had been, struck
himself but his wife told the
court' he had hit; her on other
occasions after he had been
drinking, X, \X,'.
The family had been on social assistance on and off for a,
period of about six years* This
the court was told,.was due to
the inability of the accused to
keep a job, Cpl. Nelson said,
"It appears any money he
earns goes on, drink until he
is broke, Ho has also been
known to borrow money for
"drink, whether ho ropays it or
not, 1 do not know." . Z
Mrs. Nickerson, who has four
youngsters ;at home, was1 stnt*
ed by the Corporal to be doing
a good job of bringing them up
under the circumstances, She
told the court her husband re*
coived tho social assistance cheque from which ho took out
money for drink. She had to
pny family bills and feed her
children on what remained,
In 'finding',him guilty, the
magistrate told Nickerson, It

BRITISH Columbia is growing at a fantastic rate. The
announcement of new industrial expansion at Powell River ispart of the picture. Obviously the provincial
government expects this growth to continue. Last year
our- provincial population, grew, by 50,000 people. Cali-r
fornia faces"a growth of 600,000 a year. The whole Pacific Norfliwest is expanding economically.
The '0905-66 .provincial budget	
atjfitf million is the largest
'eyer for British Columbia.

Considering this is undoubtedly one of our most  eseritial services, the fact that firemen have to  canvas for funds in order that the service continues to exist, is indeed a reflection on society.  That the firemen give freely of their time at  all hours of the day and night when called, often  under extremely adverse conditions, would appear to be more than sufficient to ask of them.  Unfortunately, such is not the case for they have  to actually seek ways and means of raising capital  in order .to maintain the facility, without which  the district could be in sorry straits.  To give due credit, the Corporation of the  .Village of Sechelt has now agreed to grant a  'further $500 to the previous $2,000.

The process of adoption said Mr. Simeon takes almost the same period of time as-a' natural birth  and every effort is made to ensure that the*parents and child  are suited.  Children   most    difficult   to  Jplaco   for  adoption . are ,those'  'with physical or mental abnor-  . .malttiesand-the-mastjunbappyr'  of them all, children of mixed  blood.  The subject of foster homes  was only lightly touched upon  as 'time was limited, but Mr.  Simeon said there was a desperate need for such homes,  The rote of foster pnrcnt is not  easy and suitable people are  hard to find.

Back there I am assured that  even though it does rain at the  Coast it is a rain that doesn't  wet you.  What with dry cold  what I was talking about. I admit this but he didn't come up  with a better 'explanation. This  is the same Prof. Shrum who  as head of the B.C. Hydro announced "substantial reductions" in electric bills. When  they, finally did arrive they-,a-  mounted to ten cents 'on a *  twelve dollar electric bill. They  were- so small they had to enclose a notice drawing your attention to them.

Also, there would have  to be a steady shift away from  ?ldoJV less efficient industries. Greater emphasis, in other words, would, have to ��be<  placed upon improvements in  productivity, on research, and  upon the fullest possible use of  all our resources including that  of our Canadian manpower itself.  Hundreds, of thousands of  young people will be ' looking  for work. Another 1.5 million  jobs will have to be found between how and 1970- In other  words, new Job openings will  have to occur at twice the average post��war rate. Even more  impressive is the fact that this  increase in employment will  have to take place in the face  of automation and the job trimming disciplines of greater  .competition, at home and abroad.  The National Economic Council set certain targets, It also  made certain recommendations  as to how they may bo attained. It .said, for instance, that:  ���Ottawa should negotiate  with its foreign trading partners with a view to tearing  down the projective barriers  which now face manufactured  fioods;  --Companies, men nwhllc,  must also remove In-bred barriers to trade, Canadian sub*  sldlaries of foreign controlled  firms, ; for" example, must bo  prepared to compete with their  parent organizations In other  parts of the world;  ���Governments (and In this  "the council included the provinces) should avoid Jnrgo bud*  Kct surpluses, This It should do  even when the economy Is operating at or near capacity, as  *flun>l��ses-"tend",*to"*filphon~*off  spending power and limit the  pace of economic growth;  ���While the ^council did not  say so In no  many  words, It  implied that the lineKcbuid be  held with respect to taxes. For  -example, it estimated that a  booming economy in 1970 could  produce a $2 billion surplus  without changing present tax  rates. With some, streamlining,  one might therefore anticipate  that increased government services could be provided without adding to the present taxv  burden which \ corporations  and individuals now shoulder  in this country.  Strejss, naturally enough, was  laid on the need for more long  term planning. A consistent expansion in Ca'nada's money  supply was called for. Credit,  under these cifcu instances,  -would be-' easier and interest  rates would tend to decline.  As might be expected, education, came in for its fair share  of attention. Priorities leading  to a heavier expenditure on industrial research were also  mentioned. But their precisS  form regains to be spelled out.  Presumably, these and other  details will be dealt with in  subsequent reports of the National Economic Council. Each  of which, government, business  and labour, will look to as a  rough but well considered guide  in the broad area of.. Canada's  economic affairs.  623;  Muriel Cameron, 548;  Carol Reid, 255.
