Here the  -See Page A-5  It took a year and a half of planning, a year  of building but the Gibsons Winter Club Is a  reality,  The winter club, located in the village on  Highway 101 east of the'Twilight Theatre,  opened its doors to its first patrons shortly  after Christmas.  "It's been a lot of work," ,a club  spokesman said, "a great number of people  put a lot of planning, effort and real work into ,  It." .    ,  The club is designed primarily as a curling  rink with four full sheets of ice; but the first"  users were the skaters. "When we go into full  operation, we hope to have the skaters in at  the beginning of the season, during the  Christmas break and at the end of the  season," the rest of the time we'll be  curling."  Skaters started appearing at the rink  BOxing Day and have been thick since. The  curlers take over January 0.  "We will have free curling at tho rink from  January 0 to 11," tho spokesman said, "there  will also be free curling instruction."  According to club officials, tho winter club  would have cost $370,000 to construct/but  volunteer work, work parties, donated  equipment and donated materials trimmed  the, price tag to $150,000. The provincial J  government provided a $50,000 grant to offset'  the cost of the recreation facility because the  club is to be a public club.  "Anyone will be allowed to curl here," the  spokesman said, "there will be regular  curling for members and ice rental will be  Utility corridor idea  put forward for reserve  mm  Hydro easement, with the Idea to extending  the corridor to tho adjacent village and  electoral districts and eventually all electoral districts In the future,  , The idea for the corridor came up when  the regional board realized a new water line  was required'for their extension of water  service to the Redroffs area, the board was  told. The resolution also palled for the fixing  of tho location of the new wateC line as soon as  possible.  Sechelt Indian Band Council Is expected to  paas a similar resolution. "The Indian Band  is trying to assure that there Is a sufficient  amount of land left free," Director Peter  , Hpcmberg told the board. "This seems to be  the best way to approach things in terms of  land use. Tho Indian band is trying to assure a  sufficient amount of land is left free."  The regional board has passed a resolution  calling for a, 'utility corridor' through the  Sechelt Indian Band land adjacent Sechelt  Village.  The resolution stated that all governments  wishing land for utility use should get  together with Sechelt Indian Band to determine the best use of the land. '  Any utilities such as B.C. Hydro, the  proposed regional water line and the  proposed highway must cross band land at  tho Sechelt isthmus, Chairman Frank West  pointed out, so a public utilities corridor  would mean the least amount of Impact and  encroachment on the band's land.  According to the resolution passed by tho  board, all levels of government should get  together and recognize tho corridor, proposed  for adjacent to or Inside tho present B.C.,  available for anyone. Tho, curling Is a little  cheaper for debenture holders."  Dobcnturo- holders paid $200 for their  debentures, an interest freo loan to tho club's  building fund, "There are still some deben-  turesavallable tho club spokesman said. With  a debenture, a curler will pay $45 for a whole  season, Non debenture holders will pay $85  for the same privileges."  Because this year's curling starts in the  middle of the season, season costs have been  prorated. Debenture holders can curl from ''  now until the' end of the year for $25 one night,  a week or $43 two nights a week. Non'  debenture holders will pay $33 for one night a  week and $50 for two nights. Curling season  ends In April. Ice rental will be $10 per sheet  per game, about two hours. Seniors will curl  for $8 per sheet. Ladies daytime curling will  be $15 with o. debenture and $23 without,  Schoolboy ano? schoolgirl curling from now  until the end of the season is $10.  "We Intend to open' the facility to the  schools for their physical education classes at  no cost," the spokesman said.  Regular curling begins January 12.  Gus Snyder has been hired as the rink's  only employee in charge of ice making and  maintenance, A freon system pumps brine at  14 degrees F. along the five miles of plastic  pipe under the ice.  "The ice making facility Is capable of  maintaining Ice In all seasons," the  spokesman said, "a dehumldlfler takes care  of the heat problem."  If the club decides not to keep lee In all  year long, thoro is a full concrete floor under  the lco and the building can be used for any  purpose.  "One thing I would like noted," the  spokesman said, "we got terrific co-operation  from the  local contractors  In donating  machines, equipment, operators and time for'  tho club.  For tho first time, Gibsons could spend  ovor $1 million in 1070.  Tho provisional budget that was tabled by  council last month indicated revenue and  expenditures for the village would be In the  neighbourhood of $1,133,000. This amount is 15  per cent higher than the actual 1075 budget of  $985,000.  The provisional budget Is only tentative  until sometime in the spring when the village  assessment base has been determined. The  final budget can then be worked out.  The present village tax rate of 29.4 mills  will not increase, Provincial legislation limits  <a village to a tax rate of 30 milk       -���  Finance committee chairman Kurt  Hoehne said any mill rate increase would  result from the school board or regional  A dog-napper succeeded in breaking the  hearts of three young Gibsons girls over the  'H\j*;��*4  ,' �����?���>>  '..~3S      ���<  district uplng their rates.  School board has indicated the school mill  rato could decrease In 1070.  Hoehne said that although village spending Is up, the village will not be required to  borrow more money. He said much of the  expenditure increase is because of inflation.  Spending increases will be made on roads,  parks, libraries and fiscal services. Hoehne  said road maintenance expenditures will  definitely be up because road upgrading Is a  priority of council.  Sechelt's provision budget,was tabled until  this month and is expected to, be adopted by  council soon.  Tho Sechelt budget is expected to1 indicate'  the expenditure of approximately $333,000.  This figure is based on an assumed 15 per  cent increase In village assessment values.  Mary-Ann Andrccf and Sammy  Christmas holidays.  A year old black Maltese was taken from  the area of the Gibsons Legion, The dog answers to the name of Sammy.  Sammy belonged to Barbie, Donna and  Mary-Ann Andreeff of School Road in Gibsons. They are aged 12,11 and 7 respectively.  The girls were out walking on December  30 when Sammy wandered off towards the  Gibsons Legion building. He didn't return and  a search by the girls turned up no trace.  "He's not the kind of dog that would  wander away," the girls' father said, "We  think someone has picked him up. He's.a very  friendly dog and would come to anyone."  He Is urging whoever took the dog to  release it in tho vicinity of the Gibsons RCMP  building; the dog can find Its way home from  there, He is also offering a reward for information leading to the return of the dog. He  , can be contacted at 0(10-9050.  Tho dog is about a foot high and has a lbng,  black, very matted coat.  FRANK WEST  Outgoing regional board chairman Frank  West had some advice and some encouragement for his board. West, who lost his  regional seat to Ed Johnson inHhe November  election, chaired his last regional board  meeting December 30.  "I want to thank all the directors for their  co-operation," West told the board, "I think  we accomplished quite a little bit and I want  to wish you the best of luck and hope you will  go along to the benefit of all the taxpayers."  He added, "Watch the water works system  and keep It self-liquidating come hell or high  water. If you don't we may find ourselves  behind the eight ball. Watch it.  "You have a damn good administrator and  staff; look after them," he said.  West added, "Otherwise, dear friends, this  has been a very great honor. I enjoyed it and I  did what I could. Goodbye and good luck."  Director John McNevln thanked West for  his service to the regional district. That was  put In the form of a motion and passed  unanimously.  r  "Why Is It," tho young girl touring tho  newspaper plant asked tho publisher, "that  there's Just enough news every week to fill up  a newspaper?"  Fifty-one times u year wo go through tho  exercise of gathering, processing, trimming,  stretching and presenting nows; a  nowspaperfull each week.  Happily, our worst Journalistic fears of 'no  news' are never realized. And looking over  tho previous year's editions imc can see wo  had absolutely nothing to worry about. 1975  l��s seen the Peninsula ns a busy, vibrant  source of excellent news which means only,  there are many busy, vibrant Individuals on  die Sunshine Const.  Since they soy hindsight brings clarity, wo  liavo capsulizcd some of tho significant  events of 1975 to allow our readers the opportunity to put tho year Into perspective. Tho  order of tho events listed hero Is significant of  nothing.  POLITICAL PALPATATIONS  Ix)C��l municipal elections brought as  rhnny surprises on a smaller scale ns tho  provincial election did on a larger. Two of tho  mast outspoken workhonian on tho Sunshine  Coast Regional Board were uasoatcd,  Previous board chairman Frank West last tho  battle ng-ftinst Ed Johnson In ktm E and $kim  Sechelt Alderman Norm Watson didn't retain  his position on village council, he too will not  Vice Uie duties of regional boord director for ot  least two years,  Bowen Island residents stuck together and  put one of their own on Sechelt School Board.  Tho elected public participation, crusader  Claua Spickcrmnnn, who, since tho summer  hud been an avid critic of school board  methods. Unseated from School Board wore  stables Joe Horvath and Jack Mactood.  Agnes Labonte retired.  Even with n heart attack to contend with,  Gibsons Mayor Larry labonte didn't follow  tho lead of his wife Agnos. Both ho and  Sechelt Mayor Harold Nelson hud no election  fears. Neither of their seats were contested  and both went back to their respective  councils by acclamation.  Dr. Eric Paetkau, who sought tho  MacKcnzlo scat In the Victoria legislature on  Uie Socrcd ticket, Is still waving his scalpel  over at St. Mary's Hospital, NDp incumbent  Don IiOckstcad tromped Paetkau on Doc. 11  and by now should bo used to tho Idea of being  a backbencher In her majesty's loyal opposition,  SEWEIt TALES  Working as though tho drainage fields In  Sechelt were going to burst any moment,  Alderman Norm Watson has Just about got  Sechelt businesses and residents hooked up to  a sower system.  , He talked the regional board Into taking on  a sewer function and lias It footing much of  the bill. On the surface all looked good until  Uie Times found out h 250 unit condominium  was alio waiting for sewers. The Tlmea  reported July 30 Uie largo condominium  development would bo built near Trail Bay  Mall once it could hook Into a sower system,  Wo haven't hoard much about It slnco,  A public discussion on tho question of  sowers should ensue this month.  THE GREENING OF REDIIOOFF8  On again, off again. That Is how tho solo of  Coopers Green to tho regional board has gone  since last Bummer. Cooper's Green Is five fine  acres of waterfront property on Rcdrootfa  rood near Half moon Bay owned by Jim  Cooper. Tho regional boord thought It would  moke an excellent pork but not at tho price  Cooper eventually asked for It. Tho matter  seemingly died.  Then on Sept. 3 tho Times published n map  showing tho public hod access to tho  waterfront of Cooper's Green ulong an old  road allowance. Tho matter seemed to die  again.  On Nov. 20 a letter from one of Cooper's  residents was procured and In it ho asked tho  regional board to clarify whether or not there ,  wan really public access to Cooper's Green  because Cooper still charged boat owners for  using it.  After tho letter was published Cooper  decided to donate his boat ramp to Uie public  and stop charging people for using Uie f Cccss.  There has been no word on Uio public  buying tho land. The matter seems to have  died agnin.  CHARLIE IS TOPS  A legend In his time, 91 year-old Charlie  Brpokman won the citizen of the year award  from the Sechelt and District Chamber of  Commerce.  Long time resident of Davis Bay, Charlie  for the past ton years has sponsored tho  Charlie Brookman's Children Fishing Derby  which takes place twice during each summer  on tho Dnvls Bay wharf.  OPERATION FACELIFT  After Incurring Its fair, share of bad  weather and poltUcalback-bltlng, the $100,000  facelift to Scchelt-Glbsoas A%nort was  completed In November with tho exception of  tho ramp which will bo paved next Spring.  The Honourable Ron Basford himself In  August assured both councils Uicro would bo  no hold up of government funds for tho paving  of tho airport. Tho paving was done and Uicro  was a holdup and a Sec holt Alderman blamed  Glbsoas council for It. He said Gibsons had  tried to liaye n clause entered Into Uie Joint  ownership deed which would give Gibsons tho  airport If Sechelt decided to become anything  clso but a village and that Uio federal  government didn't quite know how to handle  It.  Glbsoai took exception to the statements  but eventually Uie money cwn���� through lor  Uio pavers.  Slnco Uie Peninsula now has a paved  runway Tyce Airways la planning a wheel-  piano service to Powell River,  Keep your eye on what happens to Uio land  surrounding tho airport.  NOT THE FIRE ALARM AGAIN  It was a busy year for tho Peninsula's  volunteer firemen. No sooner had Uio Sechelt  Indian Band officially closed tho Indian  residence oh tho reserve In Sechelt Utan It  went up In smoke.  Although tho building was slated for  demolition, tho blaze still destroyed some  $200,000 worth of property. Nobody was hurt,  apparently Including Uio person who set the  fire. No charges were ever laid.  No sooner had Uio Sechelt firemen finished  cleaning Uie equipment was there another  fire at the residence. This time tho second  floor was destroyed. The residence wos later  torn down.  A week later Uie Hartt Crosby Shako Mill  In Wilson Creek wos destroyed by fire. Tho  estimated lass was $75,000, Police Imve ruled  out tho possibility of arson on that one.  The Peninsula Drive-In was Uie next and  hopefully last building to blto Uio dust. Thin  Sechelt business wan destroyed In early  December. The fire apparently started near  the bar area. The building was not insured.  "THERE YOU 00 JOE" '  Those were Uie words Uv&t greeted Gibsons residents after the Esso station in that  village dropped Its gas price n whopping 11  cents.  "Joe" refers to Joe Kampmnn awl wbat  turned out to be his ono man campaign  against high prices and poor quality products  on the Sunshine Coast. Joe organized a local  consumer group last summer but Interest in It  eventually waned.  The group seemed to fall apart when It had  to decide whether Uiey should become affiliated wlUi Uie Consumers' Association of  Canada. Nevertheless Joe kept bugging  merchants. Along with this IrrltaUon and a  poor economic climate for gas sales, gas  station owners in Gibsons lowered their  prices. '  BATCH PIJVNT BLUES  No sooner liad Interfnclal Dcslgas, the  builders at Seaside Villages In Sechelt, built a  concrete batch plant on the Hydro right-of-  way did controVersy over it start.  First Sechelt was in a tlthcr on whether or  not the batch plant was n commercial  Operation in a residential zone.

Theoretically, the fad sounds good���until  one examines Just what this 'nature experience' really involves. Generally, city  students are transported to a camp, where a.  week Is spent in a more or less natural setting ?  ��� or they are driven in vehicles to visit  relatively natural areas for day trips.''  True to our scientific tradition, they  disturb the study areas, doing what Wad-  sworth' disparaged, when he wrote: 'Our  murdering intellect ��� Mis-shapes the  beauteous forms of things; ��� Wo murder to 0  dissect.' How can youngsters gain respect for  nature, and the land, when their studies involve, destruction   and   disturbance   of  organisms and ecosystems?.  Most 'outdoor education' programs are  lollow, Band-aid attempts to corn-  re for the wrongs of urbanized, utilized life. The idea is conveyed that it  !ual to be outdoors ��� and that one can  go only with some specific purpose in mind.  No consideration is given to the need of all  humans, simply to enjoy being out in our  'natural home.' Instead, students 'murder to  dissect'; they dig, collect, examine and  destroy ��� performing in miniature all the  acts so damaging to the delicate fabric of  Mbther Earth.  These programs have no underlying  philosophy ��� they are merely the mindless -  following of 'a good thing.' Outdoor experiences should be an integral part of all  schooling i��� and it's time educators did some  thinking about the'ideals that must underlie  such programs, if they are to have any good  results.  Whether you hold to the Biblical account of  creation, or to the theory that we evolved over  countless eons of time, you must surely agree  that man does have an important role to play  on this planet,  Man's proper role on Spaceship Earth is  that of stewardship of the land ��� a role  currently completely negated by our lifestyle. We destroy nature for ��� short-term  monetary gain; and hence live beyond the  ability of earth's resources to support us. We  must develop an ethical'relationship to the.  land from ..which we draw our. life and  nourishment-oUienvlse we shall soon cease  to exist. SuchVneed will provide a taproot,  from which education can draw its  sustenance and purposes for all time.   -  A' curriculum that provides regular and  frequent observation of nature will lay the  groundwork for the life-long habitual contact  with the land that all humans peed. Let's get  back into the real world of nature���and sink  our roots in .deeply. This applies equally to  urban and rural schools ��� urban students  could get out into surrounding countryside ���  walking, of course���or observe the city to see  if man really does control nature or not.  There would be no need for 'experiments'.  prescribed by the teacher <��� since true understanding of nature will never come from  quantified experiments ��� only from.llfe-long  .observation and study.      T  We need also to make the ethic of  reverence for life a basis for schooling. We  maintain our lives only at the expense of  other life ��� and must repay this debt by  giving to all living organisms as much aid as  possible. Albert Schweitzer, who formulated  the Idea, wrote, 'Life as such is sacred.,,,'  and said that we should not take life unless  under the 'pressure of necessity.' Current  school programs do not heed this principle ���  school children, as well as university-  educated biologists, disturb and destroy life,  In a vain attempt to explain the ultimate  mystery. If we were truly civilized, we would,  not use death and destruction as Uie means to'  the end of adding to our store of 'knowledge.'  Our technology-oriented world Is In  serious trouble, both economically and  spiritually. What are the proudest  achievements pointed to by the proponents of  the status quo? Do they not point with pride to  the split atom, our huge earth-wrecking  machines, luxurious automobiles, and the  . general glut of material possessions? These  are the causes of the environmental problems  that now sicken Mother Earth.  We are truly threatened with destruction  PaReA*2 Tho Peninsula Tinios  Wednesday* January ?, 1970  ���reluctantthoughwoaretofaee tho fact. Wo  tack the wisdom to confine our technology ���  so our technology confines us. Where will wo  find the wisdom necessary to a renewal of our  -lives, and of our society? That wisdom can  only come from deeper study of Nature than  .we dare undertake yet ~ and the schools  should be in the forefront, pointing the way to  the rest of society. True outdoor education.  would fulfill tin's purpose.  Thoreau once wrote, 'Wisdom does not  inspect but behold. We must look a long time  . before we see.* Education does not come from  dissecting, destroying, and pretending to  'answer' the mystery of life ��� but from  looking and observing the world surrounding  us. Once this becomes the guiding principle of  teachers, we shall be on the right track���and  If such a change does not occur soon, it will in  all probability be too late for humanity.

In the summer the band got support from  all local governments for their proposal to  build a bulk oil storage terminal on the  Sechelt Reserve. At last word the Band was  trying to interest the major oil companies in  consolidating their oil dumps on the Sunshine  Coast in the one major terminal. The proposal  Includes building a wharf in Trail Bay to  service oil freighters.  Just before Christmas the Band announced the formation of a company called  S.I.B. International Industries and the purchase of a $2.5 million, 116 foot vessel. The  M.V. Arctic Harvester is the initial investment of the company, .wholly owned by  the Sechelt Indian Band. The vessel's first  contract is with the Department of the Environment and it is worth $3.1 million.  FISH FARMING  . Probably the biggest story the Times dealt  with this year outside of the local political  arena was the problems of Allan Meneely and  his aquafarm.  Meneely started his fish farm in Egmont  with the hopes of founding the biggest salmon  rearing venture .on the West Coast.  Everything was fine except for one minor  detail. The Federal Fisheries Department,.  the people he must by law buy his fish eggs  from, do not like him. He could never get  enough disease free eggs to make the  operation viable but he carried on.  This year he was unable to get enough  eggs and the rearing venture now seems to be  in a state of suspension.  HIGHSCHOOL HASSLES  Elphinstone Highschool in, Gibsons was  supposed to be completed by Sept. 30. It is still  not finished to the point it can accommodate  students   in   a   quality   educational   environment. So great have been the problems  at Elphie that, pangs of anxiety have shot  through the school trustees. New teachers  hired, more portables ordered, all designed to  patch the problems of having 900 students in a  . school;built for 600, students.   . ��� . .....   .  - So great are the over crowding problems  that school board is frantic about having the  Sechelt Junior Secondary School completed  by Summer 1976. The new school will take the  load off Elphie.  Construction on Sechelt. Junior started  near the Sechelt Elementary School early last  Fall and a new principal, (Roland Hawes,)  has already been found for it.  SHAKE, RATTLE AND SNOW  One fine Saturday night in November the  ground shook the snow out of the sky and  people couldn't decide if they lived in  California or the North West Territories.  The earthquake registered 4.5 on the  Rlchter Scale and the snow measured 9 inches on the ground.  The snowfall, the largest for the time of  year on record, did more harm than the  quake. The car accident of a Powell River  woman on Davis Bay Hill was attributed to  the slippery conditions of the highway.  Before the year was out the Peninsula saw  another major snowfall and yet .another  tremor.  OUTDOOR EDUCATION  The outdoor education committee of the  Sechelt Teachers' Association started  agitating for funds from school board to cover  the costs of transporting school children to  various outdoor education sites on the  Peninsula last Summer.  September saw a class of special students  from Gibsons Elementary at Camp Byng  because the school was not completed. Tho  success of that.outdoor education program  has not been disputed.  Gradually school board warmed to the  Idea of teaching children outside tho regular  classroom and it Is attempting to allocate  $12,000 for outdoor educntlon transportation.  INSPECTION UNDERPOWER  No amount of cajoling the provincial  health department by all levels of Peninsula  governments could get It to come up with  more than one health Inspector.  For n period last summer there was not  even one fulltlmc Inspector on the Sunshine  Const. ,  Gibsons council still says there Is more  work thnn one Inspector can handle. The  Peninsula's two previous inspectors quit  because they were over-worked. Hopefully  tho same will not happen with the new Inspector,  GROUP HOME  Tlu) Wilson Creek Community Association  Kot It together last year to establish a group  homo for emotionally disturbed children on  the Peninsula. The home wlll1>e looking after  nine kids at any one time ns Director Ian  Kenning and bis staff try to got the children  Imck Into tho community. The home opened  the end of November.  (JIIWONH' EXPANSION AND COG  107f�� saw Gibsons go for an expansion to  their boundaries but when they made their  presentation to the Department of Municipal  Affairs last January the Department thought  it best If the whole question of government  forms on the' Peninsula was Investigated.  Thus, the Committee on Government-was  STRIKE  PortMellon mill workersi weresome of the  first In the province to leave their jobs in the  forest industry dispute that started last July.,  The strike, triggered by a dispute over the  rate cargo ships were being loaded at Port  Mellon, reeked havoc with the shop owners on  the Peninsula, for three months.  TEACHERS VS SCHOOL BOARD  In all it was a quiet year. Over wages, the  Islands.  A Soil passenger hydrofoil dropped into  Gibsons to remind local residents that the  outside world can be only S5 minutes away  through modern science, The event generated  mixed emotion.  "Elphinstone will be ready" Sechelt Board  was told repeatedly. It wasn't.  In February, four tank cars filled with  liquid Chlorine tell from a barge somewhere  between Squamlsh and Powell River,  Everyone agreed It'was not a desirable  situation but disagreed on what should be  done,  .  The federal government attempted little  and accomplished nothing and the tank cars  are still down there somewhere. That matter  teachers settled with the school board. They   also appears to have died.  took the maximum they could get under the  federal wage and price guide lines.  The only incident that started to rock the  boat was the school board refusing to allow  the teachers access to their own personnel  files. There was a lot of squawking by the  teachers last Fall but the matter appears to  have died.  BYLAW BONANZA  The regional board called it housekeeping.  They wanted to put in order and update all the  old by-laws. In the process more stringent  regulations were made of area developers. A  lot of controversy surrounded the subdivision  and zoning by-laws which are now in Victoria  waiting for the provincial government's  blessing. /  Even Sechelt got into the act. Council  amended its subdivision by-law and put a  restriction on the time developers could have  to start their subdivisions once they have  received tentative approval. The idea is to  keep land from being tied up with a proposed  subdivision indefinitely.  Nobody is quite sure what will happen if a  developer exceeds the two year maximum he  can have for tentative approvals.  FIREMEN FOLLOW WATER  Regional water started to make its way to  the Redrooffs Road area last year. As the  pipes were being laid residents in that area  started to make plans for a volunteer fire  department since there would be hydrants to  hook hoses up to.  CAVALCADE  Charming Tracy MacDonald of Sechelt  was crowned Miss Gibsons Sea Cavalcade  Queen in August and will reign well into the  new year.  About the same time, B.C. Tel announced  they would hold a referendum to decide  whether or not toll free calling would be introduced between Pender Harbour and the  Sechelt - Gibsons area. Pender Harbour was  all in favor; Sechelt said yes but Gibsons said  no. Sechelt - Pender Harbour calling should  become free about Fall 1977.  On the fishing end of 1975, Sunshine Coast  residents fared well in the annual World  Salmon Championships; but on the hunting  side, representatives of the Gibsons Wildlife  Club and the Sechelt Rod and Gun Club are  wondering how they will fare with the  Regional District's proposed shooting control  by-law. The proposed by-law is calling for a  ban on the discharge of firearms in an area  roughly bounded by the salt water and the  powerUne': along the'Coast. Meetings are  planned.  It was proposed that a Sovereign State of  the Sunshine* Coast be set up to secede from  Canada. The idea received little local enthusiasm; perhaps now it would.  Plans for ah-additlonal 35 beds plus other  expansion was announced for St. Mary's'  Hospital.  Neither of the two entries from the Sunshine Coast got out of sight of Nanaimo  Harbour in the annual bathtub race there; but  there's always next year.  A proposed pottery co-operative in the  Roberts Creek area got the co-operation of  the regional board in the setting up of a land  use contract for the area.  Sechelt School Board announced the site  for the proposed new Junior Secondary,  changed its mind, announced a new site. In an  amazing show of provincial government  Ihterdcpartment co-operotlon, the departments of Highway's and Education got  together and worked out a system whereby  they could both get the best use out of the  land. The area was cleared and tho way was  cleared for access to It.  Jcrvis Inlet Is a little bigger than a tea pot;  but the tempest was still there. A proposal to  test torpedoes, was tho way the letter to the  regional boord read;' but It turned out to bo  the Installation of some equipment to reduce  tho number of days  the Department of  Sechelt got a new post office building In  June and the village council nominated it for  a Park and Tilford community beauttftcatlon  award.  Pender Harbour students staged a walkout over certain school rules and an Investigation by the school board backed the  principal of the school.  Ken Nelson won Logger of the Year for the  third time at'Sechelt's Timber Days and  announced he would not be competing for the  cup again. He said he would compete but not  for points.  The Second Century Fund paid $50,000 for  a wildlife sanctuary on the marsh at Porpoise  Bay and turned it over to the village of  Sechelt.  Some said it couldn't be done, but Sechelt  Senior Citizen's banded together, chipped in  and worked hard to purchase the old Sechelt  Legion and turn it into their own hall.  Roberts Creek won practically everything  in men's Sports including the commercial  hockey, fastball and war of hoses championships.  Vandals cut a swath through Sechelt on an  early spring morning only to be apprehended  by police.  ��� A 91 unit "condominium development is  proposed for the bluff overlooking Porpoise ,  Bay.  Carrie Wallace must have felt a little out,,  of place. The eight year old was installed as a  Brownie at a Cub Scout meeting. There are no  other Brownies in the Pender Harbour area,  but Carrie took and passed the courses by  correspondence.  Sechelt resident David McTaggert took his  Greenpeace battle to the French court. Won  some and lost some.  " Police stepped up patrols in the Pender  Harbour area to check problems with local  youths.  . Sechelt Indian Band an a large number of  other people paid last i spects to former  Chief Henry Paullwho was killed in ant'  automobile' accident.  Pender Harbour Volunteer Fire Depart-  . ment moved to new quarters.  Dr. Hugh Inglis retired ending a career of  40 years of Service to the SunsWne Coast in  the medical professipn.  Calvin Craigen was sworn in as new chief  of the Sechelt Indian Band.  Much opposition was voiced to a propsed  marina for Porpoise Bay at a public meeting.  Sechelt council later added their own objections to the marina plan.  Sechelt Indian Band formed an alliance  with two other bands to get changes in the  Indian Act which would allow them more  control in their economic destiny.  Sechelt mourned the passing of Fire Chief .  Tom Robililard.  Pender Harbour voted overwhelmingly in  favor of a medical clinic for that area.  Judge Charles Mittlesteadt retired after 17  years service on the bench.  Jim Metzler was elected Gibsons alderman in a by-election caused by the death of  Alderman Winston Robinson.  Canadian Forest Products announced a,  $2.8 million project to fight pollution at Port  Mellon.  In an exercise In public participation,  Sechelt School board used a public  questionnaire to help select a new school  superintendent. John Denlcy was selected.  The school board also announced a $3.4  million budget.  Regardless of the size of the seats being  sat upon or the size of the seats doing the  sitting, Sechelt School Board ruled there shall  be three sitting seats to a sat upon seat In  school buses.  iGovlliijis^  iiov'tfl n spectecllG rid S;,' ;A4;  !4lb:y  ���'C::.,'v ' ������'��������� !..,>���' .'.vv.: .i-,'^'yiliJjf-: *'",*&(.

Where do we go from here? IWY was  x a worthwhile exercise; all the material  written about the year, even the bad  publicity, has contributed toward the  end of making this male-dominated  ^society realize there is another half of  the population who are just as im  portant, just as capable, just as entitled  to all the rights and privileges. In  varying degrees, IWY succeeded.  But not completely, of course. That  type of realization, particularly when it  is ingrained into the fabric of society  changes slowly. We're not going to do it  With a one year long attempt at consciousness raising; but, mercifully, we  are on our way.  >li��ck to horror  Reaction locally to the pending insurance hike ranges from shock to  horror.  Despite the fact that the election  results are a dead and buried matter,  'the two camps seem to be carrying on.  The first thing the media did when the  100 to 150 per cent increase was announced was to ask Dave Barrett what  he thought about it. The reaction was as  expected. Why ask someone who doesn't  even know if he has a seat in the  legislature?  The election is over even if some  people haven't; noticed.  That brings us to the government's  announcement that the ICBC debt shall  be paid off in a lump sum. We think that  is wrong. It's not wrong that it should be  paid off; it is wrong that it should be paid  off in one go.  Granted ICBC's woes are as much  the fault of the people for their abuse of  the system as the fault of the former  government for sloppy management;  but we do not think the present administration should mettle out such  harsh punishment.  As one caller pointed out, "If I owed  you $1,000, you are perfectly within your  rights to demand it; but I'm sure we  could agree on a way for me to,pay it  back over a period of time."  It seems to us that expecting to pay  the sum off in one lump makes about the  same amount of sense as dropping the  territorial discounts and dropping the  gasoline subsidy.  Does it not make sense that those who  travel the most miles have the most  chance of an accident? Then does it not  also follow that those who travel the  most miles use the most gasoline. An  insurance subsidy, by that reasoning,  would mean that those most likely to be  involved in an accident would pay the  most toward insurance.  We think this would be a more  equitable and realistic way of handling  ICBC's financial problems while at,the  same time not being unrealistically  harsh with the population of the  province.  It must be remembered that shelling  out $200 or $250 in one go is a hardshipior  a certain percentage of the population,  notably the Senior Citizens and others  who are on fixed income but for whom a  car is a necessity because of the poor  local transportation system. A local  Senior Citizens spokesman expressed  concern that the higher insurance costs  would force many of their members to  sell or put their cars up on blocks.  We urge ICBC to reconsider the plan  and try something more humane.  Wti.  "of  A PENDER HARBOUR resident js offering a $50 reward for information leading to  the recovery of his canoe. The man said the  canoe, a 15 and a half foot aluminium  Springbok disappeared from the beach near  'Vista Villa' south of Pender Harbour. Vista  Villa was formerly Skipper Bill's.  The canoe is painted light blue inside and  is fitted with oarlocks and an extra wood seat  (white) in the centre. The man said there is  little chance the canoe floated out with the  tide, so is putting up the reward for its return,  no questions asked. "  If you have found the canoe or know where  it might be, ,call 883-9147.

This docs not happen too often fortunately, but It did happen then. I/Ct me explain.  For four years the two private parking  spaces at the rear of my little store, allocated  to me by virtue of the Village of Sechelt by-  lows, have been used Indiscriminately by  many   thoughtless   individuals, ''shoppers,  people going to the dentists' offices nearby,  Friday morning shoppers, people going to  Vancouver on the bus and even Saturday  fishermen. Their ears have been left for some  hours, even full days In one or both of these  spaces, thereby forcing us to go through the  rigmarole of relocating our cars temporarily  and watching constantly for the right time to  rcpark when our spaces would be vacated. On  several occasions wc have ticketed these cars  with polite little notices, asking the owners to  please remove them. .Some of the readers will  remember such instances; I am sure. Well,  week before last, after ticketing a ljJttle car  which had remained all day in our space, I  tint) It towed away. I must say In all sincerity,  I did not know who the owner was, and I was,  In a way, sorry for being forced to impose a  temper nor do I like hurling or quarrelling  temper no do 1 like hurting or quarrelling  with anyone but felt, at the time, thnt the  thoughtlessness of so ini|ny people should be  publicised and pcrliaps some good might  come of It.  The owner of the towed car was most  emphatically provoked by my action. 1 do not  blame him entirely, although he knew perfectly well that he lund used my particular  space and had not removed his car when  another space, allocated to him, was made  available, Ills statement Is I hat he was Informed Ahat he had a right to any space  behind this building regardless of any by-law.  The Sechelt RCMP do not enforce the bylaws of the Village, they leave it up to the  individuals concerned. I do not think that this  Is right, I believe that laws and by-laws  should be enforced by some Authority.. Is  there anything that can be done In Instances  such as this without putting the onus on individuals.  Louise Blsolllon,  Miss Bee's Card and Gift Shop,  ��� Sechelt.  eutiier renorl  2   -  I.

As  yon can appreciate having such a spot is one  and the same as being accident prone. Bat he  usually managed to keep his nose clean and in  joint and didn't suffer as often, possibly, as he  would like.  There was one lesson .Paul did learn the  hard way.  On his school's Christmas break last year  (Paul is a professional student) he drove with  a group of friends to Florida to spend the  holidays trying to turn impressively brown.  Naturally when he returned, the adventures  of calamity casanova were eagerly awaited.  Of the tales he told over a jug, only one stands  out  As the story goes, he and his two travelling  companions were the first of a party of 13 to  arrive in-Key-West It was late afternoon  when they arrived and having just driven 40  hours straight from Toronto, they pulled into  the campsite and slept ��� until late afternoon  the next day. The other two vehicles transporting the rest of the party arrived  sometime during the night  With the sunshine, palm trees, coral and  turquoise ocean, Paul also awoke to three  charming Canadian female hitch-hikers who  had set up camp next door. Promising, he  thought Acquaintances were soon to be  made.  One of the lady hitch-hikers had apparently been exploring near the waters edge  and had slipped and scraped her leg on a  piece of dead coral. She and her friends came  over to Paul and company's campsite to seek  assistance. Looking .back, Paul said the  amount of blood and agony was not indicative  of the extent of the injury.'  At the time however the wound  precipitated some discussion on the merits of  seeking a doctor and asking for his-her  opinion on the necessity of a tetanus shot All  three vehicle owners, including Paul, had had  experience with hospitals and did not want to  spend their first evening on the Keys pacing  in a hospital waiting room. Volunteers were  not exactly forthcoming.  But, Don Juan to the rescue, three pairs of  pleading eyes were too much for him. He and  his three new friends were soon off to the  hospital 14 miles down the highway.  "Who was I to turn them dowri," said Paul.  Once inside the hospital, Paul couldn't  help but notice signs posted in the emergency  room outlined various costs. For instance,  laying down on a bed in a cubicle was $10 and  if a doctor was required to examine you, the  cost was $20. Paul said he wondered if one  could get a written estimate on body repair of  if varying rates between hospitals made it  worthwhile to shop around.  The injured girl sat in a free chair and  another stayed with her. Paul and the third  girl decided to wait it out in the lounge near  the hospital's main doors.  '  An hour went by and the sun went down.  The girl with Paul went back to the  emergency room to get an update on the  patients progression."  Half an hour later she returned to the  lounge and asked Paul to come outside with  her for a breath of fresh air. He followed, and  no sooner had she let one of those self-closing  doors go in his face, did she break into a run,  yelling to Paul to start" his van. She disappeared around the corner of the hospital.  . "Well, it didn't appear to me to be a good  time to ask questions," said Paul, obviously  becoming more agitated as he told the story.  He jumped in the vSn and started it. Then  out of the early darkness, Vame the three  girls, running. One of them was limping, her  pant-leg rolled above her bandaged knee.  Over the engine and into the back of the van  they came all urging a fast get-away.  Paul is such a sucker. Three pretty girls  could motivate him td move a mountain.  He put the van in gear and pulled away as  coolly as possible, almost hitting a parked  car. He even remembered not to turn his  lights on until the licence plates could no  longer be read by anyone standing in front of  the hospital.  Once back on the four lane highway Paul  recalls he was reluctant to ask what the score r  was. He thought he might be part of the great *  hospital robbery, but nobody appeared to be  carrying drugs or money. The three girls  were in the back, shaking in their triumph.  Finally they told him they had departed  the hospital through the back door because  they didn't want to pay. They just took the  first exit they found on the way through to the  lounge to pay at the cashier.  "They wanted $35 for, a tetanus shot and  this miserable bandage," the injured one  said.  "We weren't about to pay that amount,"  she said emphatically.  "Why not," Paul said, "your Canadian  medical insurance would have reimbursed  you for it when you got home."  The injured one said the doctor came,  asked her enter the $10 per lay down cubicle  and said she needed a tetanus shot "The  nurse gave me the needle and put the bandage on. "So that was ^$5 for the shot, $10 for  the cubicle and $20 for the doctor, who didn't  do a thing.  "It was the principle of the thing, we  couldn't pay," she said.  Paul said he offered to go back and pay.  "No", he heard in unison.  A little farther up the highway, the injured  girl wondered if she would be deported if she  was caught. She also wondered what her  probation officer would say if she was captured.  Good God, thought Paul, an habitual  criminal and I'm her accomplice. The  thought nearly forced him into the ditch.  The get-a-way looked clean. But suddenly,  blue flashing lights appeared in the rear-view  mirrors. Paul almost went for the other ditch.  They were doomed.  Paul quietly, in his least-hysterical,  voice told the girls the game was up and the  police were, closing. The injured girl about  fainted after breathing an indiscernable "oh,  no". .  The blue lights were gaining. Paul said he  held his speedand tried to think,of something  to tell the police. The steering wheel was  getting wet and his peed for a bowel  movement was getting more pronounced.  The lights were upon them. One car passed  and then two police oars pulled along side ���  and passed. The police were after the first  guy. They pulled him over and Paul and the  girls drove by. The other girls about fainted  this time. Safe.  Sipping his beer in cold Toronto, Paul said  that in the future, he has to beware of pretty  girls with principles. ..  Right, I thought.

Dear Sir:   '  At a recent meeting of the Ratepayers  Association of this area it was resolved that a  strong objection be registered with the  Pollution Control Branch re the proposed  sewage disposal outfall from the hotel at  Pope's Landing.  It has been observed the ebb tides In the  proposed outfall area move in a southerly  direction but at the turn of the tide the debris  comes directly back Into the harbour and we  arc sure that these tides and currents will  bring Into the Harbour and any surrounding  Islands and beaches any effluent that is  discharged in any area close to the entrance  of this Harbour.  As this area Is already suffering from the  effects of septic tank seepage and pleasure  boat discharge into those waters we feel that  this proposed hotel should not receive a  permit to discharge effluent into these  'waters.  In 19C4 the commercial oyster operations  in Oyster Bay were closed, as the collform  count was judged to be unsafe. In 1967 the  reasons for this closure were confirmed.  In July 1974 a compreheasivo sanitary and  bacterlalogical survey of Pender Harbour  and outlying waters was carried out to reassess the quality of these waters. It was felt  that the Increases In shoreline development  and recreational boating warranted a study  of tho Impact of these discharges.  The recent data indicate.') that bacterial  pollution is becoming more severe and  widespread In Pender Harbour and Is  beginning to become mcasurcable In outlying  areas. If these concentrations continue to rise  activities such as swimming, fishing and  boating could l)o curtailed because of the  potential health hazard.

That's odd; my dictionary doesn't  say anything about hipocracy.  I'm talking about the federal government.  Housed in a box on Parliament hill are the  people who are supposed to be the leaders of  this country. They come in two varieties,  those who are supposed to be making the  policies and those who are supposed to be  tempering them with thoughtful criticism.  Neither side, apparently, is functioning.  Let's look at the example of fiscal  restraint  Fiscal restraint, Ottawa style, is granting  MP's a $700 tax free increase instead of a  larger one. Here, here.  Now that's the kind of leadership that  really makes one wonder what goes one in the  minds of those who live in the lobotomized  environment of our nation's capital. Talk  about blowing one's credibility.  OVERHEARD a commentary through the  electronic media the other, day about  leadership and integrity. The announcer was  berating the federal government for an  t amazing lack of integrity. He said that when  the federal government turned 180 degrees  and instituted wage and price controls, there  was not one cabinet member who was willing  to admit that he bad opposed wage and price  controls in the first place. Not one had the  integrity to resign his post in protest over this  complete change of policy.  Actually that leaves two possibilities.  First, as the broadcaster claime4 there is no  integrity in the cabinet. Or perhaps one plight  assume that there is not one cabinet member  who is capable of displaying any of the  qualities of leadership and admit that he was  ..opposedto the change..    r ,;   . .  I, personally, suspect the latter. There  wasn't one cabinet member with the guts,  probably not one MP on the government side,  to have the courage to stand up and say they  think the government is wrong. John Turner  departed the sinking ship;  Is it possible that every member of  parliament is so afraid of losing favor with  the hierarchy that they remain mum while  their principles, the same principles they  stood so solidly behind when the wage and  price control was the opposition's idea, were  by Don Morberg  compromised upon, then discarded. Where  was their' integrity then. It dissolved muter  u^e guise of something called parry solidarity  which, liberally translated, means following  the leader is easier than thinking.  The federal government has two things  going for them. The first thing is the  Progressive Conservatives. They are a sad  joke. Their present lame-duck leader is a  good organizer and administratively competent With a little work on his part, the  Liberals could be in power for 200 years.  I chuckle over stories of Alberta Premier  Peter Lougheed taking the leadership.  Lougheed has it soft despite being called the  blue-eyed Arab of the west because he has  surrounded himself with good administrative  personnel; Stanfield has no such luxury and  judging by the number of people after his job,  everyone wants to be an officer and there  won't be any footsoldiers.   .  Lougheed in the Tory leadership would  have to contend with the same batch of ninnies that Stanfield has to work with, well-  intentioned bumblers who are capable of little  more than getting mad. Lougheed wouldn't  go near a situation like that; it would blow his  image.  Totalled, that's not much of a threat for  the Liberal hierarchy. There's talk of a  liberal leadership convention in the spring. I  think I can assume that these are slipped to  the news media with the blessing of one P.E.  Trudeau. It appears that he has gotten bored  of being grand fromage and wants out.  Turner stepped out of the about-to-  become-very-unpopular role of finance  minister in order to purge himself of all black  marks so he may assume the mantle of  leadership with pride and dignity. More  power to him. I'm willing to try anything else.  One thing \ think the whole country would  like to try is leadership of the kind we're not  getting now. Trudeau almost showed a hint of  Jit with the fiscal restraints but blew it by  showing he believed they applied only to  others and not to him or the MP's. Mackasy  almost showed a glimmer of hope during the  postal strike; but once he had the. ball, he  became so nervous that he fumbled. Wasn't a  bad try, though, for someone so inexperienced with the concept of leadership.

Regional parks is a new budget item and'  will cost taxpayers $3,175, the only revenue  for the item.  Recreation, also a hew budget item, will  also cost taxpayers $3,175 but is bolstered by  a $3,000 provincial government administration grant bringing the total budget  for the item to $6,175.  The budget now goes to the new finance  committee for their finishing touches.  Chairman West explained that until the  accounts are to be finalized and audited, the  budget could not be accurate. He added that  he was pleased with the budget and expected  the figures to be accurate.  It will be up to the new finance committee  to make any additions or subtractions to the  budget.     ��� ,  Resolutions accepting the .provisional  budget and provisional water budget were  passed. Chairman West urged the new board  to get a written declaration from the Water  Rights Branch that they have no objection to  the regional board taking additional water  from its source for the westward extension of  the system. He explained that the board had  this verbally but urged, to get a written  confirmation. He also urged the board to  proceed with the Mountain Lake water  storage system quickly.  Ui f^ljl Si JL ^# JUL  scho  Educational television has added a new  dimension   to   the  district's   educational  , programme this year.  Every school in the district, from Bowen  Island to Egmont, is equipped with 20 Inch  colour television sets and video-cartridge  players on which a wide variety of  educational programmes are pre-recorded.  For example, one cartridge received from the '  Provincial Educational Media Centre contains two films: Animal Adaption in Northern  Environment and Adaption to Ocean Environments.  The television sots are like domestic  models and con be used to receive off-air or  cable programmes.  Tho Provincial Educational Media Centre  is the Department of Education's audiovisual  branch located in North Burnaby. In addition  to maintaining a collection of 10 mm motion  pictures, tho Centro houses a television studio  where educational television programmes  such ns Student Forum ore produced. There  is also n dubbing centro where films, which  tho PEMC has negotiated video rights, otfo  made Into television programmes which aro  then mado available to schools throughout tho  province. By dubbing, Uio PEMC la oblo to  supply pre-recorded programmes in  television format for $15 ��� rather than tho  $450 it would cost for 18 mm films.

"I haven't been able to get in touch with  the developers," Hoemberg said,���������"but the  funds are overdue and if they are not coming  through, then we may have to cancel.

In a letter to the regional district, G.G,  Runka, chairman of the B.C. Land Commission, said he sent a letter to the Inventory  Co-ordinator of the Environment and Land  Use Committee Secretariat requesting a  review of agricultural ratings on local land.  The letter follows a letter from the  regional board asking for a capability review  of certain portions of the Sunshine Coast  which were included in the ALR.  Runka said, ... We have requested (the  co-ordinator) to place a review of the land  capability for agricultural ratings of Sunshine Coast Regional District ALR on the 1976  field program."  He added, "It is 9m- hope that the project  will receive priority and a report be made  available to the commission as well as the  regional district."  Throughout history man has tried every  possible way to secure happiness. The mind  has a natural inborn tendency to seek out  happiness. The state of happiness has been  one of the most sought after human conditions. Man has tried to secure happiness by  living a certain way, creating a certain type  of environment and surrounding himself with  specific objects that are pleasing to the  senses. Yet after one has secured these objects there still remains that empty feeling of  unhappiness in life.  Happiness is the basis of peace. Unless a ,  person is "happy, any sense ���**6Tpfeace that  , person may have will be constantly disturbed. A lasting state of happiness can not be'  gained by anything ln> the outer, 'ever-  changing' field of life. We need to get in touch  with the Inner values of life, or the stable  'non-changing* basis. This basis of life can bo  personally verified by anyone who takes tho  TM programme.  Scientific research has indicated that tho  meditator's body and mind experience a  more "rcstfully-olort" style of functioning  which is the expression of Uie non-changing  value of life. Further, more follow up studies  Imve shown with the continued practise of TM  tills stable field of life becomes stnblizcd In all  forms of activity. Tho result Is that a person  who practises TM has tho dally experience of  a non-changing value of. life which brings  improvements to nil aspects of one's life.  For a stabilized experience of happiness  and peace start Wo TM programme. ���Free,  Introductory lectures aro given on Tuesdays  2:00 p.m. and Thursdays 7:30 p.m. at the  Whitnker House In Sechelt.

Yoga renews  energy where calisthenics deplete it, and it  relieves the body of many aches and pains..  For those who suffer from insomnia or can't_  unwind even in sleep, are irritable or un- \  comfortable, yoga can help.  So far more women than men on the  Peninsula have profited from the yoga  classes, but his Spring hopefully will see (  many more men enjoy positive health  through Yoga. It is a wholistic approach to  the well-being of the. entire organism.  Come and find out at your school in 1976.

Hose   Nicholson   will   be   leading  When Sechelt teachers settled for the  maximum salary increase allowable under  the wage and price guidelines, observers  were setting that at about 12 per cent.  Those teachers and districts who took  their decisions to the arbitration board are  averaging slightly under the 12 per cent  figure.  With. half the arbitration awards now  determined, the average increase appears to  be 11.89 per cent.  Some of the province's 75 school districts  reached agreement in direct negotiations  with their teachers.  But the majority of contracts ��� affecting  teachers in 60 school districts ��� were submitted to binding arbitration in compliance  with the provincial Education Act.  Most of the arbitrations took place individually but some districts and teacher  ,,.ass��ciaj|jiQr^9jgrjejtd,Jto^pnal arbitration.,.  For example, an arbitration board on  Vancouver Island has awarded an 11.3 per  cent increase to teachers in Victoria, Sooke,  Saanich, the Gulf Islands and Cowichan.  And an arbitration board in the East  Kootenay has awarded increases ranging  from 12.2 to 12.7 per cent for teachers in  Cranbrook, Kimberley, Windermere, Golden  and Creston-Kaslo.  Salary increases for teachers in Vancouver will also be decided by abitration but,  the figure has not yet been announced.  Existing salaries vary from district to  district and by job category. In Vancouver,  for example, teachers with three years of  university education receive an annual  starting rate of $10,106 rising to $14,906 after  10 years.  Teachers with a four-year bachelor of  education degree rise from $10,875 to $17,530  after 11 years; those with a five-year degree  range from $11,931 to $19,971; and teachers  Are you part of the  '^~~n  human race or just^C^  a spectator? ...

The present programme is for a nine  months' exchange of students with twelve  other countries, four Asian, four African and  four Latin American. -  Last September, the chosen participants  reported to formation camps situated around  five of Canada's major cities. Joka, whose  exchange country is Sri Lanka, formerly  known as Ceylon, reported to the Keswick  Youth Camp on the shores of Lake Rousseau,  100 miles north of Toronto, where participants from all over Canada assembled.  They were divided into groups of ten,  including a group leader, and during the next  two weeks they had the opportunity of getting  to know one another. One of the subjects in  which they received instruction was the  Singhalese language and by the time the  - students from Sri Lanka arrived, they were  all able to greet them in their own tongue.  Eight of the Sri Lankins were attached to  each of the Canadian groups, increasing the  number to 18. The group in which Joka was to  live and work for the next nine months consisted of eight Sri Lankins, four French  Canadians and six English Canadians.  The eight Sri Lankins were mostly from  rural areas, one of them coming from a tiny  village consisting of only eight houses. Joka  observed many cultural differences. The  Singhalese are a quiet, slow moving people  who like to plan ahead and cannot be rushed  in hasty actions or decisions. This difference  came into focus on occasions when the  Canadian students would plan an excursion at  a moment's notice.s  / A smiling, friendly people, they are  tractable and willingly submit to situations  against which the average Canadian student  would tend to rebel. There were differences  too'in the food eaten and ways of eating it.  Yoka learned to eat as they did, sitting cross-  legged on the ground and using her hand in  place of spoons or foks, but she found the food  hot and heavily spiced, leaving her with a  craving for water. The group worked well  together but one of the chief problems was  communication. The Sri Lankins knew very  little  English and  communication  was   least she will not be alone for she will be  posableonly��nasuperficialleVel.Even with   working with the same group that she has  the French Canadians there were some  language difficulties, although all four of the  French Canadians spoke some English.  When they left the formation camp, Joka's  group travelled by train to Thunder Bay on  the north shore of Lake Superior where they  were to spend five weeks of their first project  on voluntary work prepared for them by the  CWY head office. Some of them worked with  the mentally retarded, some in co-operatives  or in the March of Dimes ability centre. Joka  was kept busy in McKellar Hospital with  patient's charts or a microfilm machine. On  other days she worked in a co-operative  bookshop and in the evenings she taught  handicrafts at a community school. At the  end of Project 1, three days were spent in  summing up and evaluating what had been  done and what had been learned from the  experience.. e  For project 2, Joka's group was transferred to Lethbridge, Alberta. Their arrival  had been preceded by considerable press  publicity and as a result, the people of Lethbridge gave them a most warm and friendly  reception. Here they were billeted in private  homes and their hosts were delighted to take  them around and show them places of interest. The group itself also organized trips to  show the Sri Lankins something of the  country, with visits to Calgary and Banff. The  Singhalese students .were happiest when they  were^outdoors in our parks and mountains.  They thought our country beautiful ��� but  cold.  Here Joka. worked as an organizer in a day  care centre, in a birth control clinic and in a  nursery where she learned something about  bringing up children. On this subject, they  heard a lecture by the famous American  doctor, Benjamin Spock.  At the end of Project 2, there was another  evaluation session and the students from Sri  Lanka talked about their country, telling the  Canadians what to expect and how to prepare  for the next phase of their programme.  On Sunday, Joka left on the first stage of  her journey, flying to Montreal where she will  meet the rest of her group for the flight to  Bombay and then to the training camp at  Colombo. For the next four months she will  face an entirely different life, sharing the  work and hardships of the Sri Lankins. At  come to look upon as her other family. She  haspromised to send us an account of her life  and experiences there.  By Adreane Melvin  MP Jack Pearsall had arrived home for  the holiday season a few hours.before,and  said already his children had roped him into  putting up lights on their outdoor Christinas  trees.  Looking ahead for 33.976, he said the  predicted easing of inflation and recession by  the second quarter is not to be, and he talked  about federal spending cut-backs.  , He said he is more disturbed about these  cut-backs than the January 1 surtax imposed  on the over $30,000 a year income earners.  "The thing that disturbs me more is the  slashing of government spending ��� a good  chunk, $1.5 billion, and still the government Is  spending $5 billion more/' said Pearsall.  "So the job has only begun. To bring it to a  local level, Coast Chilcotin will notice the  effect of the cutbacks mainly in LIP grants  and OFY."  "LIP is not as effected as OFY, which is to  be phased right out," said Pearsall.  "Despite criticism,of LIP, 90 percent of  LIP grants through-out, Canada, are serving  good purposes," he said.  He said with tightening up of LIP, local  groups will have a harder time getting funding.  "I anticipate a real, difficult choice being  made by the Constituent Advisory Committee '  next fall. 1 myself will be watching like a  hawk and will have to have proof an application will serve all guidelines now in effect ��� including new ones going in," he said.  I^ocal groups who are eligible for funding  may not get all they ask for sold Pearsall,  who said ho will learn In January If more  money Is forthcoming. With the slash-bock,  he was not optimistic on .this possibility.  "What 1 wont to say Is I support fully the  guidelines the antl-lnflatlon board Is working  under, but I would sincerely trust they will  recognize historic bargaining that has gone  on over the years between the companies and  pulp and paper unions."  "Also, I would trust they would not forget  the union negotiations had begun as of last  July, months prior to the anti-legislation  board appointment:" ,  "As on individual member of Parliament,  1 will present my views to tho board and a.sk  that they would see fit to accept the present  contract offer."  Pearsall sold the Irving contract ��� a pulp  and paper contract In New Brunswick  requesting a contract Increase of 21 percent,  haa been turned down by tho antl-lnflntlon  board, and he said the spot-light will now fail  on the B.C. forest Industry contrncts. !  Although tho local union gained on tho  Hutcheon recommendation, tho retroactive  pay coining cannot make up for the overall  loss of a three-month .strike, he said, and on a  broader scope, he thinks Canada needs to  reach settlements other than by going out on  lengthy strikes.  NEW WAY NEEDED  "We've got id find a new way of reaching  agreement ��� In the lust few years, we've  gone off the trnck.

Turning to the new recreation complex  here, he said there has been some confusion  on the $500,000 cheque from Ottawa presented  at the complex opening. He said negotiations  for this money had been completed months  before, after more construction expenses had  been incurred than anticipated.  Pearsall said the sum of $1 million in  federal money plus the $500,000 were  originally a loan to the community, but are  now an outright gift.     ,  On the controversial footbridge, Pearsall  said he is also a taxpayer, but said he accepts  the decision made by council to go ahead with  the project, since construction is underway.  On the recent spill of diesel fuel off  Willingdon Beach here, Pearsall said he was  'notified early of the mishap by Sis Wilcocks,  secretary    of    the    PR    Anti-pollution,  ACTION ON SPILLS  To get quicker action on spills, he said  Ottawa and Vancouver government bodies  working on the environment are keen on  forming a local group which would be  working through the federal government.  "This way, we'll have an individual acting  on behalf of the Federal government ~ to  spot things and to quickly notify Federal  members of parliament."  Concerning tite outcome of the provincial  election, Pearsall said he was surprised as he  expected the election of a minority government, but with Barrett still at the helm.  But he said Mackenzie Riding may come  out ahead of the party change over.  "Don (Lockstead) had done his best under  the conditions that existed for him ��� In a way  it's a good thing he was re-elected," Pearsall  said. "In previous years, when Mackenzie  was in opposition, we got a lot more done." He  referred to the days when Bert and Tony  Gargrave were In office under similar  political conditions.  "I hope Don can do the same," said  Pearsall.  On tho election os a whole, Pearsall said  Uie polarization of the entire election disturbs  him. "We're on a pendulum, left to right."  People ore scared to let go ��� they don't know  where they'll land ��� but tho centre of the  road has to come," said Pearsall.  On improvement of national economic  conditions, Pearsall Is also awaiting tho U.S.  election outcome, and ho Bald Canada appears to get along better with the U.S.A. when  a Democrat Is In office. On tho recent  hostilities between the two governments,  Pearsall called It "a tempest In a teapot,"  ���and Indicated the "horse-trading" between  Ottawa and Washington Is heavy these days.  Pearsall said by January 3, he will bo  engaged In local matters and Invites people to  call him then, He hopes before that date to  celebrate Christmas quietly with his family  a.s ho seldom lias a chance to see them these  days, ho said.  The extra day In parliament meant 33  members had to cancel hard-to-got reservations, rather tlum use their priority standby prerogative, which would bump other  passengers from flights, tho 33 went home on  a national defense plnno, which was flying to  the coast to pick up personnel.'  "Wo hedge-hopped all across the country,  dropping off MP's and picking up military  ���  personnel'," sold Pearsall.  DON LOCKSTEAD  ... constructive criticism  Lockstead  vows to keep  commitments  "I'm a constituency member ��� that's my  reputation in the Legislature," says Don  Lockstead, who vowed on the night of his reelection as MLA, to continue the fight to fulfill  the needs of the Mackenzie riding.  Now, after the provincial election, he is  having a hindsight look at the election results,  which saw a Social Credit sweep of the  province, and preparing to assume his new  role on the opposition side.  Asked if he felt that he would be as effective a member in opposition, Lockstead  said that "it depends on tife member himself  how effective he is in the legislature."  Known as a hard-working backbencher  since 1972, the Mackenzie MLA said that  when he directs criticism in the Legislature,  ."it will be constructive". He added "That's  the kind of MLA I will be."  He stated that he intended to accomplish  projects he originally set out to do. He said he  would continue to work with individuals and  elected officials to achieve his objectives, to  bring benefits to the riding.  . Lockstead explained that he had made  commitments on transportation im-  ', provements, which he hoped would be kept by  the new government. "It's my job to fight to  see that they are kept."  He referred specifically to proposed  coastal service to be undertaken by the newly  acquired Prince George vessel. "I hope this  project will riot be scuttled," he said.  The Mackenzie MLA-said he had fought to  obtain a second vessel for the Comox-Powell  River ferry run and mentioned the trial run of  the Sechelt Queen to determine what  modifications were necessary to make it  suitable for this crossing. He said that the  availability of this vessel will depend. to a  large extent on the construction of three new  ferry vessels next year.  He also said he was concerned about the  operation of the mill complex at Ocean Falls.  "There's no doubt that the operation would  either have to close down eventually or be  modernized," he explained. "We conducted  serious discussions about carrying out  needed modernization."  Another concern of his was to make more  qrown land available to people who need it.  He said he had been encouraged on this  proposal by the " reasonable cooperation'' he  had received from the regional district.  Commenting on the provincial election,  Lockstead said that "naturally we were very  disappointed" with.the results. He added,  "We seemed to hold a fairly good percentage  of the popular vote, but there was too much of  a swing to the political right*. "It's a trend that  appears to be taking place in other countries,  too."  In any event, Lockstead stated that he was  confident that tho NDP party as the opposition would continue to advance "good  sound policies of benefit to the' people of  British Columbia."  B.C.

In a recent bulletin, John Hind-Smith said,  "A letter was recently sent to the Regional  Board with a copy to the Minister of Parks  and Recreation requesting that an area of the  Sunshine Coast be designated as a wilderness  park for the use of those people who enjoy  back packing, hiking and camping without  the 'convenience' of roads."  The area involved includes Panther Peak  ��� 5,500 ft; Chapman Lake, West Lake;  Tetrahedron ��� 5,800 ft; Tannis Lake; Rainy  Peak and all land over an elevation of 3,000 ft.  in that general vicinity.1 ���"; - -  '"'' "It would be nice to think that one part at  least of our beautiful coast would be safe from  the logger and miner and other forms of industrial development for posterity. In the  name of so called progress the Sunshine Coast  is already being ravaged by numerous gravel  Jits.which are springing up. everywhere.  Unfortunately, this is a natural resource  which we have plenty of and as time goes on  the scars from these pits will grow at an ever  increasing rate. It is time that a piece of land  for recreation purposes be laid aside for the  enjoyment of this and future generations," he  said.  Access to the area concerned is by trail  only and includes at least four different ways.  "There are no doubt others, but the four  which come to mind are via Rainy River, and  the cleft in the mountains to the right of  Panther Peak, via McNair Creek, via the  East Road of Jackson's logging road and via  Chapman Creek. The last route is unfortunately closed to the public in general due  to the logging taking place in the Chapman  Creek water shed but no doubt the day will  come when logging will come to an end and  the trail which was paid for by means of  public funds through an O.F.Y. grant, will  once more be accessible to the public. A  similar situation exists in the approach from  McNair Creek. This trail was also established  with the aid of an OFY grant, but has since  been partially obliterated by a logging road  and has not been maintained. The growth in  that valley is such that an annual  rehabilitation of the remaining trail would be  necessary to make it usable by the public in  general. The road however is not closed as in  the case of Chapman Creek," Hind-Smith  reported.  "The east road of Jackson's logging  makes an interesting approach and brings  one to the edge of the deep and sheer valley  formed by McNair Creek which one can then  follow up to the lake. Still another approach to  the proposed Park would be again from Rainy.  River. This time however you would drive to  the end of the road, about 12 miles, up to the  dam on Rainy Lake. Park the car and then  proceed round the lake to the far end and  climb the ridge. From the top one gets a  really spectacular view of the north side of  Tetrahedron Peak. This is a sheer wall of  perhaps 1,000 feet down to the valley below.  The route along the ridge to the shoulder  below the peak and the climb to the top  presents no problems."  The area concerned is mostly over the  3,000 ft. level and as such is semi alpine and  alpine in nature. The snow remains well into  early summer and would be an ideal location  for cross country skiing, winter camping and  any type of outward bound course which may  at some time be undertaken at the school and  young adults level.

"As yet not too many  people get into these parts but it is conceivable that one of these days precautions  will have to be taken to protect the delicate  environment by means of trails, etc., as is  done in Garibaldi Park but as yet people are  able to wander at will and long may it remain  like, that," Hind-Smith said.  "It is not known yet what the policy of the  Regional Board will be as it applies to the  Chapman Creek watershed and it's ac-  cessability to the public. I seem to recall that  controlled recreational use by the public was  suggested in the comprehensive study which  was done a few years ago. The likelihood of a  dam being built at the creek end of the lake, in  order to raise the level of the lake is very real,  but it is hoped that this will be accomplished  without having to build a road. The use of  helicopters and,aircraft as an economic  alternative has been recommended, he added. "There will no doubt be some opposition  to this scheme but there is a word 'compromise' which means a little give and take  on the part of both sides and with a bit of luck  some kind of agreement may be reached."

This is due to play on  April 21, and the admission charge (an-  tidpated to be a maximum of $3) will depend  on the Society's financial position toward the  end of the 1975-1976 Season.  With a full schedule of 18 films yet to play,  membership in the Film Society is well worth  while for anyone interested in films who has  not yet joined. Apart from Les Ordres  released in 1975, a variety of international  films including recent productions is  scheduled. There are two films each from  Czechoslovakia and Sweden as well as films  from France, U.S.A, Great Britain, Mexico,  Hungary and Switzerland.  Switzerland is represented by The Invitation released here last year having won  the Special Jury Prize at Cannes in 1973, and  was nominated for an Academy Award as^  Best Foreign Picture in 1974. Keith Wallace  and I both thought this deceptively simple  comedy the highlight from a combined total  of about 30 films which we saw at the  Canadian Federation of Film Societies' Film  Screening and A.G.M. in Toronto in May of  1975.  Tonight's presentation is Stanley  Kubrick's brilliant comedy Dr. Strangelove  or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love  The Bomb starring Peter Sellers (in three  roles), George C. Scott, Sterline Hayden and  Keenan Wynn. The plot is derived from Peter  George's novel Red Alert (originally  published as Two Hours to Doom by 'Peter  Bryant'), which had roughly the same plot as  Fail-Safe and had it earlier.  The screenplay is by Kubrick, Terry  Southern and Peter George and has three  principal settings: the office of General Jack  D. Ripper, Commander of' Burpelson Air  Base; the Pentagon War Room with a conference headed by President Merkin Muff ley  and Chief of Staff "Buck" Turgidson, attened  by the Russian Ambassador and a top US  scientific advisor, Dr. Strangelove, a cripple  in a wheel chair" whose name originally was  Dr. Merkwuerdigicheliebe and who has an  acceht to prove it; and the interior of a plane  under the command of Major 'King' Kong, a  Texan Big Boy who gets,his plane through.  General Ripper, a kind of triple-distilled  Bircher, is convinced thaf the Communists  are poisoning the country's water supply,  "proved by fluoridation, as part of a plot to  take over the country. He initiates a nuclear  attack on Russia. Captain Mandrake, a  British exchange officer on his staff, is quick  to observe that Ripper has gone mad, and he  tries to persuade Ripper to give him the recall  code for the planes. Meanwhile, under direct  presidential order US troops are storming the  air base,to capture Ripper. He commits  suicide before they break in, but Mandrake  manages to puzzle out the recall code from  some pet phrases of the General  and  telephones it to the Pentagon in time to have  the planes recalled except for Major "King"  Kong's which gets through to drop its bomb  thus   detonating   the   Soviet   Doomsday  Machine, a thermonuclear device which,  once triggered, cannot be reversed and which  will blanket the earth with radioactive  material for ninety-three years.

In a letter to the regional board G.L.  Brooke, secretary of the ratepayers  association, said the association is concerned  that the by-law be passed as written to protect  our children and residents in and around their  homes. ..  Brooke said the basis for the association's  position is that "our area Is rapidly become  more populated and we fear Injury or worse  to our residents if the present lack of controls  continues,".  ''  He cited the incident where two deer were  shotNoy. 17 in Redrooffs Estates subdivision.  The shooting control by-law has been  given second reading by the regional board  and is now in committee for further consideration. ���   Children's books, preschool and others,  also Jigsaw Puzzles for youngsters of all  ages, ~ Miss Bee's* Sechelt.  ine e3ct@nd@<  The deadline for submitting entries to the  national environmental photography contest  sponsored by Environment Canada and  , Canadian Photo Annual has been extended to  February 21, 1976, because of, the postal  strike.

They are  afraid that if everyone learns how good it was  that next year we will have to enlarge the hall  to accommodate the crowd that will want to  attend.  After all where can you get a sumptuous  dinner, a good top orchestra, good dancing  (both old time and modern) for the very mere  pittance that was charged.  The dinner was truly sumptuous. The  , ladies of the Senior Citizens Association are.  noted for their culinary abilities and once  again justified their reputations with the  flavor and variety of the goods laid out at the  serving table.  Before and after dinner, we enjoyed  dancing with an orchestra that was really  making toe-tapping music. They were Evelyn  Bushel, piano; Al Fans, drums, Al Fox,  guitar and Emery Scott on accordion.  Normal operations will be resuming  immediately and I would like to extend an  invitation to the many newcomers to the area  to come join with us for good companionship  and fellowship on every Monday at 1:30 p.m.  for carpet bowling, every Wednesday at 1:30  p.m for dancing both modern and old time,  every third Thursday for our regular monthly  meeting (business) and every fourth Thursday for a social time.  You have a lot of good friends and neighbours. All you have to do is come to the  Seniors Hall at the times designated and meet  them. You won't be sorry.  ,iffil SEflliSI  Sunshine Coast Regional District has  signed two interim agreements to purchase  Soames Hill.  At the December 30 board meeting, the  district agreed to grant the board secretary  permission to sign ah interim agreement to  purchase Lot 24, Block 694 and the northern  part of Block 693'.  Both the interim agreements are subject  to the availability of satisfactory financing,  the board was told.  The two blocks total 29 and a half acres.  The board has until June 1 to arrange for  financing of the deal. The deal is also subject  to ministerial approval and the passing of the  appropriate bylaws.  There will be a progressive whist drive at  the Welcome Beach Hall on Saturday at 8  p.m. Admission 50 cents and everybody  welcome. Carpet bowling is already in full  swing with competition between the mens and  ladies teams getting to the fever pitch. Come  along next Monday afternoon at 1:30 p.m. and  give it a try.  There have been family reunions during  the Christmas holidays in many homes. Mr.  and Mrs. Dick Birk had their daughter Lynne  with husband Pat Cherry visit from Calgary.  They drove to Seattle to meet their son Dennis  who had flown from Hawaii. Dennis and his  wife Jane who are now living in Hawaii  travelled there in their Tahiti Ketch 'Takuli'.  At the Chuck Davie home were Kathy,  Gordon and three of Chuck's brothers, Bob  from Manitoba, Ron from Roberts Creek and  Doug from Vancouver.  Mr. and Mrs. Virg Garnet entertained  their son Tom, his wife Jerilyn and two  children; their daughter Judy with husband  Bruce Sotting and two children from  Washington and Mr. and Mrs. Bill Miller of  Gresham, Washington, who are Mrs. Garnet's  parents.  'Mr. and Mrs. Doug Foley and Kathy of  Squamish made a hurried trip to Halfmoon  Bay to visit Mrs.. Foley's father, Ed Edmunds. They send greetings to all the friends  they were unable to see.

Doug Wheeler,  former editor of the Peninsula Times, and his  wife Marcia have nov/ bought a cottage in  Monmouthshire, Wales which they plan to  enlarge and renovate; They send their fond  regards to all those who remember them.  Among the many/friends they miss they  make special mention of Charlie Brookman of  Wilson Creek. They think of him specially at  . the time of his children's fishing derby.  From Edna Gladstone (formerly Edna  Brooks) of Meryille, comes news of the  Brooks family. Joan Brooks is working in  Victoria for the .Bastion Theatre and doing  very well. Bill, and Reta Clarke, former  owners of the B&J Store, back from.a  wonderful two months tour of England and  France, have settled in a mobile home in  Langley.  Don Ross, who sends an Aloha greeting to  all his neighbours, says that sunning himself  on Waikiki' Beach beats shovelling snow  which was his last job before he left.  i.
