At last meeting of the Board, a letter was read from Mr. Chief Director of  the Pollution Control Board which, in  effect; asked the Boards attitude in regard  to West's letter.  Mayor Wally Peterson, Gibsons Village'representative on the Board, said he  would like to see a copy of the letter sent  by Director West to the PCB for he hud  no recollection of it ever coming before  the Board, or of the Board asking him to  write such a letter.

He was duly Installed  .Hid once again Halfmoon Bay and W��>t  Sechelt   have representation,  AdmlnUlruttki' Chorlfj. (ntoiiirif* i-rprr-  ted he had a letter from one redden I  which he believed to be in connection  with the .situation, tiuforunntely it was illegible.  PUBLIC gallery was filled to capacity  and others filled the hallway when  deputations and individuals turned up at  ���last meeting of the Sunshine Coast He-  gionnl Board, Frlduy January 30th.  Much of the concern expressed evolved  from a number of tumors based upon a  mixture of truth and fantasy regarding  proposals six months or so ngo to establish  i;ravel  pits in  Ihe area.  Two companies were involved and each  separate plans for loading sites, neither  or which included transporting gravel  along or across the highway, One had  plans for barge loading facilities at Porpoise Bay, the other planned a con,veyer  system under the highway through to a  loading base on Indian Heserve property,  Speaker for lb'.' group, A, Lynn of  Selma Park produced a letter from Socialist MI.A Dave Barnitt which suggested  the Heglonal Board would bo responsible  for approving or disapproving gravel operations In the area,  Newly elected Chuhman, Cliff Gilker,  told Lynn "for your Information the Board  does not grant such permission because  It is not. in its power to do so,"  Director Lorne Wolverlon told the  group that tenUdlve plans were submitted to the Bourd by Construction Aggregates jilx months or more ligo, These  Indicated a conveyor system under Ihe  highway from Indian lease property at  Bclmn Park, Since that time nothing fur-  thcr has been heard of the proposals,  Director Prank West added; "it Is  quite possible the company ha:, completely  abandoned Its plans.  Chairman Gilker concluded the discussion with "we have toIdvyou all we  hnow, wc know nothing more but I nr<-  nure you we will be Ihe first to know  when romething doe**, take plarc and will  make certain nothing is e:,tab|li.hed which  would in anv way be a detriment."  ANNF.XED "  KcqucM by the SrSma Park Community Awmlation foe Jnclusloi. In the Heglonal District some month*! ago wan  agreed upon by lh<* Board, n resolution  Wia passed, approved by the Department  of Municipal Affairs and included in Letters Patent.  Unfortunately, in.���so,doing, certain lots ,  which previously were in Selma Park are  now in the Davis Bay urea, Consequence  is that residents involved now have to  pay higher street lighting tax than those  still in Selma Park,  Mr, Lynn told the Board he. had previously apppeared at a regular meeting  to protest the situation, he had been as-  Mired that all would be rectified, Since  then he has corresponded with the Sccro- '  tary Treasurer but has received no satis- "  faction. ���   ,  Heferring to past correspondence, Administrator Charles Gooding said the  Board had been requested to tlfhe in  Selma Park and had done previously  what had been asked, The two properties  In, question, duo to un earlier error by  Victoria, were in an overlap of Davis Bay  and in fact were eligible for double taxation, In taking In Sclmu Park, the Board  had to designate the boundary and in so  doing the two properties became part of  Davis Bay.  This might be unfortunate in (hat they  are not In a higher |tnx area but there hi  nothing the board can do,  Director West agreed wllh Mr, Gooding that the Board had fully complied  with the regui'M of 1he Selmu Park Community Association. Lynn, however,  argued that Bylaw 19 In not. valid and  that'his property, now In Davis Bay,  should be within the Selma Park Improvement District. West, In turn, told him  that the Selma Park Improvement District'  Is no longer exist;* as such.  Director Norm Watson commented  thiil the mmpluinanti* have obviously  been legislated Into a higher cost area  and therefore have good cuuse to protest.  Director Archie Hutherford agreed, adding  "Ihey have i\ legitimate beef and I mii;-  giv-t they write a letter of protest to the  Moan! which we m torn should mibmit to  Victoria".  It was finally agreed tho matter be  turned over lo Ihe, Flounce Committee  for   further   titudy,  secret deaT between council and the !PUC  to put in a sewer outfall. "I have since  received a letter from the Director of the  PUC stating he would in no way become  involved in anything contravening the  Act" he said.  West added "I think it was very nice  of the Director to write the Board bringing the <��� matter out into the open but I  think it was also slightly mischievous in  that he says I wrote on the 12th of December, when, at that time, the application was not even in".  He concluded "if I cannot write on  behalf of the area I represent then who  can I act for."  Chairman Gilker said a policy has already been established whereby a director  is free to write such letters involving a  matter which docs not involve the Board.  Mayor Peterson asked "docs that mean  any director can have Regional Board  letterheads so that we can all write on  these matters?"   ���  The Chairman said "not entirely, it  depends upon wind her it involves the  Board or not. If it Is in connection with  only those in a'particular directors area  then I see nothing wrong ,vvJth it. It might  not be done rry the local councils or .school  board but I know II is done elsewhere".  Mayor Peterson argued "that as the  Board had been involved, a copy of  West's letter should he in the Board office,  To a comment by the Chairman that  it is a mutter of intent, Mayor Peterson  presented plans of the proposed sewer  including treatment plant and said "here  is our Intent, It Is not a secret".  Mayor Peterson was then obliged to  answer the same question three times  put to him by Director West "does village  council plan to dump raw sewages into  the sea?" He was told each time "ho, our  plans call for a treatment, plant'*.  Director Norm Watson asked the  Mayor "what type of platlt do you expect  to install",, He was I old "a secondary treatment plant",  Went commented "according to our ex-  perls'it is a primary plant' but this will  bo Investigated",  Discussion followed enquiry by the  PCB Director as lo whether the Board  planned to become involved in pollution  control, Chairman Gilker suggested lime  will come when this will be necessary  whether directors like it or not.  -. Director Watson stated he fell the  matter could be dealt within five minutes.  Past Chairman, Lorne Wolverlon agree,  hut t^hc Chairman said the matter is an  impoilant one and took up a Jocular  comment by Director Tyncr that the  Finance Committee under the chnlrman-  .shlp of Director West Investigate the  situation,  Mayor Peterson objected  to  thin and  ,stilted "you are now referring this to a  man   who   has   already   objected   lo  our  pluim and who will now have the chanre  to objee) |i|;uii,,"  Suggestion that Mayor Peter.Min be  Inclnded lh the committee was rejected  by the Chu|i mini who said "you are Involvement in tin* mutter and therefore  it writ Id not  br In order"'.  Director Archie lluUiei IdkJ pointed out  tluil the committee would have to report  hack to the Hoiird and no action could  be taken without snuiport of the Board.  *,�����>   ^.gm^** <h�� *. .   4*.^-   ���  >   ��>����*�������  *���>   ^.*. *- ^-*li J .-.,". -      a   ���.

Sunday School ��� 10:00 a.m.  Church Service ��� 11:15 a.m.  PHONE 885-9665  AM Welcome  BEING watqhman of a logging camp is a  plush job in some ways. The pay is  good, considering the watchman simply  lives in the camp with everything furnished. After the necessary cleaning and  repair work is done he will have many  hours of free time. Usually there is a  boat furnished in which he can go out to  fish or he can hike in the nearby woods  or he can laze or rend. By the time the  logging crew comes in he wilj have read  his way through stacks of reading material of every kind: newspapers, books,  magazines, the back of cereal boxes.  Many people wouldn't take n watchman's  job because of the Isolation, For weeks  or even months at a time he may not see  another person. He must be a special type  of person to live iilo.je and still keep life  worthwhile.  The watchh.un's job is important for  if Ihe camp were left unguarded it would  soon be a shambles.

He  never saw the animal but its tracks were  all around the camp. The garbage can  was raided and anything edible left outside the cabin disappeared. That watchman was very relieved when spring came  and the cougar left.  I heard too of a vOung couple who  were "watching camp last year. One morning they discovered a giant footstep outside the cabin. They recognized it as a  Sasquatch foot print and were so terrified they didn't step outside the cabin  until their employer came in two days  later, Their-boss too was puzzled to see  the huge foot prints which resembled a  man's. He took his rifle and followed the  tracks into the timber where the snow  hadn't melted thpm out of shape. There  he could easily see they were really cougar tracks.

The Peotnsula*^^  "/��� may be wrong, but I shall not be so wrong as to fail lo say what I believe to be right." g  ���John Aikin  Douglas G. Wheeler, Editor ��� Stewart B. Alsgard, Publisher    '  rw******v*w***v**\i************vv**v***v***yr*\nr\ra*******^  M&igls&Eiifi��  AN INTERNATIONALLY read magazine whicTi for many years carried  with it an air of unquestionable dignity  has, during recent year:*:, joined the, ranks  of the high pressure, gimickly orientated  ��� pubHeatiens--w4iicJt^I4-maU boxes with  unwanted promotional literature fit only  for the rubbish box.  One of the rather more undesirable  methods employed to peildle the pub-  V .'.cation to former subscribers- not wishing  to renew is to inform the victim that"the.  company realizes he, or she, has ho wish  to discontinue his, or .hciy subscription  and failure to pay for renewal is undoubtedly an.oversight. Therefore, the benevolent company will continue forwarding  the magazine and J'sirnply return a  cheque with the attached statement, hut,  should the reader not wish to continue  please notify the company accordingly."  In due course along comes the excellent publication, followed by another  friendly letter advising that the cheque  has not yet arrived and please submit  without delay.  ' This type of promotion is undoubtedly based upon the fact that the average person will take the easy way out  and cough up rather than become involved in what might prove to be a legal  battle.  The. tcuen situation  is that no one  need purchase anything not ordered and  ���������- while these characters are free to send  as many of their magazines as they wish,  providing no request has been made or  v _  "  ��illy ie  THERE was a time when school boards  were showing definite empire building propensities and The Times, like  many other progressive newspapers, did  not hesitate to speak out on the situation.  Result was the failure by the public in  many communities to accept Referenda.  Once writing upon the wall became  abundantly legible, both Boards and Department of Education realized the time  had arrived for a closer look, consequently during recent years name of the game  has been "economize."  Our own School Board was no exception and'when changes in administration "were made, we were the first to  commend the Board for taking realistic  action. Changes too have been made by  the^ public and during, the past few years  our elected representatives on the School  Board have worked long, hard and diligently with its Secretary-Treasurer in an  endeavor to provide the best of educational facilities within a limited budget.  The whole school financing situation is  quite ludicrous but this is, not the fault  f of the Board and we have no doubt it  will eventually be changed.  Regardless of the difficulties under  which Trustees have had to operate and  the fact that they were striving so sin-  ' cerely to do the best possible, it has continued to amaze those of us who arc  aware of the situation, that so many individuals never cease lo malign.  It was therefore a refreshing change  last week to hear a statement by Scchclt's  acting Mayor Norm Watson to the effect  that Council is in no way qualified to  vote one way or the other regarding the  School Board budget. We have elected  representatives on the Board who in  some cases arc professional people. Wc  know them to be sincere and to have  worked for many weeks preparing the  budget. Therefore, what right has council  to approve or condemn the budget?  Mr.  Watson  further   expressed  the  Fletcher's Philosophy  see�� its (fflgmitty  signed,   they   can  claim  ���-Hurry W. Fletcher  Rl-I.UCTANCP,  When you're raised on a fnrm you discern  lliouijh iinlnmls aren't the best icaclier*.,  Yd Ihe lessons you're likely to lenrn  show the plipht of unieiisoninR crcuturc*..

We're reluctant to nhe proper praise  or comforting words, mnrc'ri the pity,  'III tho kid we have known all our days  Urines honors to some other city!  any   contract  nothing.  It might be suggested that it is a simple matter to fill in and return a cancellation slip but the point is it is unneces-  aSa'ryJjf these people wish to play it  smart, the answer is to play it smart also.  Accept all they send but dump their  statements in the waste paper basket.  This method of selling could be used  in any other direction deemed acceptably  by companies and business people. We  would all end up with new cars, furniture  and appliances at the drop of a_ hat  should the practice be legally binding.  Fortunately it isn't and -any merchant  dumb enough to deliver unordered merchandise with the hope he might con the  recipient into paying for it, would very  quickly end up broke.  With .such small items as magazines  wc would assume the psychological theory is that the amount of money involved  is comparatively small and that most people would prefer to pay up. Should they  choose otherwise, then loss to the company is negligible, but as most pay, then  the company is.well ahead of the game.  We say again; no one in any way has  to send these people one cent or write��.  them one word. There is no obligation��  when companies send, through the mail,  magazines or merchandise which was  neither ordered nor solicited. By all  means keep their products and if they  request their retdrh. let them collect  them. Most important, pay them nothing.  sur�� n||i _  view that if the Board had not increased  its deficit and even though there might  be some slight increase in the budget, he  would personally support it.  Something of a similar view was  taken by Gibsons Council which, following a short meeting with Board members,  approved the budget.  Such action by both councils must  surely gratify Trustees for it is, in effect,  a' vote of confidence by responsible members of the community who as elected  Aldermen represent a substantial portion  of the populace.  This then, would indicate that while  splinter groups and power hungry but  ineffectual individuals might continue to  harass the Board, they arc, after all, no  more than small ripples in large pools.  The Trustees arc carrying out their duties under extremely unsatisfactory conditions and we wholeheartedly agree with  consensus of opinion���they arc doing a  good job. Far better, in fact, than is  oone by the Department of Educati6n at  this lime;.

Delegates were encouraged to broaden  the free home Bible study service that  the Witnesses offer the community.  "There la much need for such study,"  Mr. Itlsbey claimed, "The Bible pinpoints  this generation ns living in a destiny determining time, nt Ihe brink df the Biblical Armageddon.

Around Gibsons  ���by Morion Charman  BEVY of charming girls were serviteurs  at an informal luncheon at noon on  Saturday in the Anglican Parish Hall.  Present were Christians from different  churches, including a boys Bible study  group. Mrs. G. Owen welcomed the guests  and introduced the speaker Rev. Howard  Klassen of Calgary who is Canadian  director of Wycfiffe Bible Translators. He  told of going in 1949 to a part of Mexico  where there was a group of 25 to 30  thousand Indians who had no alphabet  and no books. Much time and work went  on as the scriptures were translated for  these people and in the process thrilling  results were realized.  The Bible has been translated into 450  languages and dialects but there are still  many groups who do not yet have scrip"'  tures in their native tongue.  Following Mr. Klassen's talk there was  an interesting, question period enjoyed a-  like by young ahd old, so much so that  the audience was reluctant to leave even  when the meeting was dismissd. ,;  On Wednesday at the home of Mrs.  J. S. Macey a local preliminary planning  meeting 'f\ connection with the observance of f&e Women's World Day of Prayer, noted that the general theme this year  is "Take Courage."  Mrs. B. J.

Unemployment  Insurance  Q. How do I get a new Social Insurance Number card now that I am married?  A. Obtain an "Amendment of Social  Insurance Records" form from your Unemployment Insurance office. Complete  and return it along with the S.I.N, cards  issued in your old name. .  Q. I have been working for the Federal Government as a temporary employee  for the last two years. Can I now stop  paying Unemployment Insurance?  A. Employment by the Federal Government may be certified permanent after  an employee has completed two consecutive years of full-time work. This is provided the employing department expects  that he or she will continue in government employment until retirement. Certified permanent employment is not insurable, so Unemployment Insurance contributions , cease when permanent status  has been achieved.  Q. How do I get plastic Social Insurance Number cards?

McCaul, has left for  Vancouver where he will embark on the  P.&O. Liner Oronsay for a cruise to  Australia.  VACATIONERS  This past week has seen the return of ,  many residents Who have been seeking  the sun in warmer climes. -Mr. and Mrs.  Wm. Swain who flew to Hawaii and returned hpme on the Liner Oriana, had a  wonderful holiday, but on the last day of  the voyage, Mrs. Swain succumbed to an  attack of influenza from which she is still  recovering.  'Another returning traveller "ls\Mr.  Archie Rutherford, home after a most en-  joyab:v' holiday in California as the guest  of his brother, Dr. Donald Rutherford.  Among the many places of interest he  visited were Marineland, Disneyland and  Death Valley.' He enjoyed the trip im-  mensily, but still thinks there is no better  place to live than the Sunshine Coast.  Tag Nygard is home after a wonderful holiday in Calgary. He skated on the  Bow River and thoroughly enjoyed meeting many old friends.  DISNEY DREAM  Before the late Walt Disney died, en  couraged by the success of his brainchild, Disneyland, and dreaming even  greater dreams of a vacation kingdom  with room for "expansion, he purchased  27^000 .acres of .wilderness in Florida.  Despite his death, Walt Disney Productions,' under the chairmanship of his  brother, Roy Disney, has gone ahead with  the realisation of his dream, and on January 16th, the residents of Florida flocked  to a preview of Walt Disney World, a  $300 million project which is planned to  open 15 miles southwest of Orlando during the Fall of 1971.  ��� So far, most of this vast project is still  on the drawing boards, but a great deal  of work has * been- done in clearing the  land, landscaping and building the Preview Centre which is styled in a South  Seas modern motif.  Lake Black which formerly was virtually inaccessible," has been cleared,  made into a place of beauty by the magic  Disney touch and renamed Lake Buena"  Vista. With the lake as a centre theme,  Walt Disney Productions will build a new  city of Lake Buena Vista, with five huge  theme resort hotels, golf courses,' recrea-  ��� tion centres and many of the attractions  such as the Magic Kingdom park which  have made Disneyland famous.  Walt Disney World will have its own  unique transportation ��� network with a  monorail over the highway in the sky and  watercraft of all kinds offering transportation between the various attractions.  During 1970, three major motor inns, will  be built adjacent to the centre with a total  of 1,200 rooms.  7000 visitors through the Centre the  first two days of the Preview and were  greeted by 14 hostesses in uniforms of  persimmon, blue and white. Each visitor  was asked to sign the guest book and  there was a separate guest book for each  state and each country.  Halfmoon Bay has. already left its  mark on Walt Disney World, for the first  signature in the Canadian guest book is  that of your correspondent, Mary Tinkley.  Opening of Walt Disney is expected to  bring 10 million visitors during its first  year and the people of Orlando are wondering how even their splendid highways  are going to be able to cope with the  influx of traffic.  INTEGRATION  Probably the biggest problem facing  the city of Orlando, and many other  southern cities at the present time, is the  U.S. Government's order to integrate all  schools during the month of February.  During Mrs. Tinkley's stay in Orlando,  the city was seething with resentment at  this order. Whites and negroes, young and  old, and people with diverse views about  segregation all thronged to public meetings' and urged the School Board to defy  the Federal order.  In Orlando there are districts with an  entirely Negro population. Some of these  , negro districts have their own schools  which in many cases they have built  themselves and bf which they are justi-  fiably<jnroud. According to the hew order,  some of the coloured students. in these-  negro areas must now be transported by  bus out of their own area to the nearest  white school which may be five miles  away, while white students formerly attending the white school, will be conveyed,  by bus into the coloured sector to attend  school there, it will be interesting to  watch the outcome of this situation for  many parents have said they would refuse to send their children by bus to  schools several miles away when there  was a suitable school within a block or  so of their homes.

This past week, has  in many ways, been strange and confusing but now things are getting back  into the humdrum of everyday life.  The Red Cross group is organizing a  penny  drive;  everybbdy   brings  pennies  , and deposits them in their team tins, At  the end of 2 weeks the team "with the  most money wins some points.  On Friday there was a noon-hour mixer costing 6c per person. For the Bombers  $2.89; Spitfire $2.60; Mustangs $2.54; and  lastly Sabres $2.22.  On Monday February 2 there was a  bake sale, next Monday there will be a  penny candy sale and on Friday 13 a penny sports lunch hour. Some of this profit will be sent to Greece where the Red  Cross is- sponsoring a child. The rest will  be used for their project of the year  which is the Residential Nursery School.  ������by Denniso DombrosW  In some of the Guidance classes the  students were given two leaflets, one published by the West Vancouver Board of  School Trustees on Marijuana and its effects and the other, a consumer memo on  L. S. D. Any students who wish to obtain one of these are asked to contact  Miss Wilson.'  Cheer Leaders, boys and girls volleyball and basketball teams are busy practising in hope of playing another school  soon.  On Tuesday, January 27 at 7:30 p.m.  there was a meeting for both adults and  teenagers concerning communication. A  .film made by the Yorkville hippies was  shown followed by discussion groups.  SAYING OF THE WEEK  Q. When a glass Is dropped what causes it to break.  A, Carelessness,  AN EXCITING find in 1947 of the Dead  *Sea Scrolls, in caves in Jordan, by  Bedouin shepherds was the subject of a  film shown at the recent Roberts Creek  Parents' Auxiliary meeting.  The scrolls were surprisingly still decipherable 'due "to the consistently hot, dry  climate in the Dead Sea area.'  The manuscripts consist of 8 scrolls  and some tens of-thousands of fragments  written by members of a hitherto unknown Jewish Brotherhood. The scrools  include manuals of descipline; hyriih  books; Biblical commentaries and.apocalyptic writings. Two of the oldest known  copies of the Book of ^Isaiah and fragments of every book in the" Old Testa-:  ment except that of Esther.  The scrolls were purchased by the  Hebrew University and the Syrian Monastery of St. Mark of Jerusalem. The  material is now in the Jerusalem archives  and being studied by scholars from many  countries. x  Believed to be from an early Jewish  Library near the Dead Sea, the manu-  . script? were written between 68 A.D. and  200 B.C.  Due to Arab��and Jewish battles in  1947, -several of t$sr> scrolls became lost  and were not recovered until 1954 when  an advertisement appeared in the New  York Times offering for sale ancient -Aramaic and. Hebrew manuscripts. They were  reclaimed and on sTune 11, 1954 the lost  scrolls were' addde'd to the archives in  Jerusalem.  An important result of the finding of.  the Dead Sea Scrools was the reassurance  that Old Testament translations were  basically correct. A concern of scholars  from >ny years was that the Old Testament was a translation from a translation  to a translation, with the possibility^that  meanings may have been altered.  . The scrolls written 1,000 years before  any known translations proved that the  Old Testament in use for ever 2,000 years  was   unchanged  from   original  writings.  NOTE: Copies the booklet published  for the National Museum ,qf' Canada,  "Scrolls from the wilderness of the Dead  Sea," may be*obtairied from the Times  Bookstore, Sechelt.  Accidents increased  but deaths decreased  ATTORNEY-General Leslie Peterson said  today "Trie fact that an* increase in  .accidents resulted in a decrease in deaths  in 1969 may be attributed to a greater use  by motorists of seat belts and shoulder restraints with which many motor vehicles  are now equipped."  Fatalities from highway traffic accidents in British Columbia in 1969 totalled -  526 lives. This is a decrease of 48 or 8.4%  from the 1968 total of 574 deaths.  Over the same period there, was ah increase of approximately 25% in property  damage accidents and the costs of property damage.  **���  "The use of seat belts and other similar safety devices is something I urge all  motorists to make a habit of," said the  Attorney-General. "Before starting out on  ��a journey however,short, before you turn  the key . . . buckle up."

The Peninsula Times  Wednesday, February 4, 1970  ,*���  Paul St. Pierre  ������Letter from Parliament Hill  OTTAWA���Although it may have escaped .your attention, we have had in Ottawa recently a debate of such intensity,  so fraught with- strong emotion, so hung  up on questions of principle, so inflamed,  so passionate that it is a matsvel that the  ice on the Ottawa river did not break up  three months, early.  The debate revolved around the question of whether a woman is a person���  a.,tquestion closely associated, with the  classic Greek debates as to whether women had souls.  Ours was conducted, not by parlia^  ment, but by members of the National  Press Club, all of whom are male. The  National Press Club enjoys the facilities  of a popular watering hoi* on Wellington  Street, just opposite the parliament buildings. Some of the best stories originate  there.  A move was made to admit women reporters to membership, in our National  Press Club. Despite the suggestion of  Stanley Knowles that the house of com-,,  mons%hamber be given over to the men  for this debate during a weekend recess.  it was held elsewhere.'  ?ut the echoes of impassioned speeches  are? still echoing m the centre block. Some  anti-feminists in the press club swore  they would tear up their membership  cards if women were, admitted to membership. Others called any-admissions to  be "the thin edge of'the wedge."  Another is reported as saying "Next  they'll be wanting to use the men's washrooms."  Finally, by a vote of 58 to 53, the National Press Club voted against accepting  the feminine fact. Since all members of <  parliament are honorary members' of the  press club, and since Grace Mclnnis of  Kingsway West is positively not a male,  I wonder what disposition has been made  in her case. We may hear later.  One result of this imbroglio was a conversation with Dr. Maurice Ollivier, law  clerk and parliamentary counsel, author  of n much quoted reference book on Canadian sovereignty und ono of the most  seasoned parliamentary observers in Canada,  Dr. Ollivier was reminded of The Persons Case of the 1020s when not only the  Canadian courts but also the British  House of Lords became involved in the  question of whether women were people.  Those interested in the finer details  will find this case in the law books���  "Henrietta Muir Edwards and others, versus the Attorney General of Canada and  others, 1030 Appeal Cases 124 (The Persons Case.)"  The facts, say Dr. Ollivor, were these.  Up to this time, no woman bad ever  been appointd to the Canadian Senate,  Section 24 of the British North America  Act'provided for the appointment of "per-  ��>ns" to the Senate, but the government  was of the opinion that women woro not  persons in terms of tho act.  |A group of Alberta women, Henrietta  Edwards' name leading tho list, had the  matter referred to the Canadian Supreme  Court for decision. The .supremo court  ruled I hat women wort* not persons!.  Although tlu; decision was unanimous,  tho Mackenzie King government of 1020  must have felt some .sympathy for the  petitioners, It provided the means and  money for them to nppenl lo the British  Privy Council which, In those years, provided a court of hint resort beyond our  own (supreme court,  In 1 OHO, Dr. Ollivier wan In 1/mdon  with Attorney General Ernest Lapointe.  They were 'engaged in discussions which  led to the issuance of The Statute of  Westminster, Knowing that tho Privy  Council decision on Ihe Persons Case* was  duo, Lupolnto ,iont Di\ Ollivier to Ixird  Snnkoy to determine what lho announcement would l>e.  "laonl ftnnluy mid Ihe other lordfi had  rejected Ihe ariiumonl that, nt (he lime of  tho UNA A't wns written, women had  practically no pollilral i\nhlu, Lord San-  key told me that he considered a consll-  lullon was ,i living tree and that he wns  not prepared hi lop off any branrhoH, Ac  cordlnfily tho dociiiton he would announce  Hint afternoon would he" fur lho pet|t|on-  4-fS."  "So you see," i.iy.'i Ui*�� enidilo Di\  Ollivier, "I was Ihe first Canadian to  know that women are people, and Ernest  Lapointe was tho second."
