V  �����  MAKING HIM "madder and sick"  conservation officer Pat Mulligan wades  through illegally dumped garbage  looking for clues as to who dumped this  litter on the B.C. Hydro right-of-way.  Mulligan says' people are too lazy to take  garbage to the dump could be creating a  health hazard.  \XXlX//  w/e/yr>ui\r>y 76  SECHELT TIMBER DAYS has a new  mascot. The little logger, as yet unnamed, will preside over the Timber  Days celebrations in Sechelt May 23 and  24. Logger was drawn for the Timber  Days committee by West Sechelt artist  Hugh Weatherby.  The start of a-crackdown by Peninsula  authorities on people who litter saw a Gibsons  man fined $200 under the province's Litter  Act in Sechelt court last week for dumping  household garbage on the Port Mellon High-  Way.  Conservation officer Pat Mulligan from  the Fish and Wildlife Department charged  David Hoeving under Section 4 of the Utter  Act which says no person shall discharge  litter on land or water in authorized places  after he rumaged through household garbage  found on the Port Mellon Highway.  Mulligan told the court that on April 12 he  noticed a split open bag of garbage containing  household garbage approximately 12 feet  from the highway. He said he examined the  garbage and found pieces of personal mail  bearing Hoeving's name.  With the help of the Gibsons RCMP,  Mulligan said he located Hoeving and he  identified the mail.  Hoeving pleaded guilty to the charge with  the explanation that he thought it was alright  to dump garbage in that location. He said he  thought the garbage would be buried there.  Mulligan explained there is a creek near  where the garbage was dumped and that he  had no intention of allowing it to become  polluted by people dumping garbage.  Crown prosecutor Hugh McCallum asked  the court to take a serious view on this  "disgusting habit" and pointed out the  maximum penalty for the offecne is a $500 or  six months in jail or both.  "I submit that this penalty shows the  legislature takes a serious view of the"Offenet?.  and I would ask the court to exercise its  privilege in imposing a $100 per day fine  against the offencer until his garbage is  cleaned up.  "It would then make it clear to people they  would have to clean up their own mess."  Judge Ian Walker said he agreed with the  prosecutor. "It doesn't seem to make any  sense that people would Utter then there are  proper dumps in the area. It is a question of  sheer laziness."  After imposing the $200 fine, Walker  suggested to Hoeving that he move his garbage.   ,  When the court recessed, and individual  who was sitting in the court came up to  Mulligan and said, "that was a good job, I  hope you keep going after those people who  litter."  During a tour of some of the Peninsula's  more popular illegal dumping sites Mulligan  said the response from the individual was,  "nice for a change," and that both he and the  RCMP are planning a crackdown on litterers.  "We are going to lace it to them this year -  these people who are too cheap to take their  junk to the dump."  He said that between him and the police  mere were three more litter charges pending.  Most of the offenses take place in forested  area - out of sight of the main highways. The  powerline and logging roads seem to be the  site most in demand.  The mile stretch of the B and K Logging  road from Highway 101 to the powerline near  Roberts Creek is line with variety of garbage  in various states of decomposition. It disgusts  Mulligan who has been a conservation officer  here for six years and has never seen the  s ������seePageA-2  The association, which represents 18  would-be homeowners, announced Friday  it would give Interfacial Designs 30 days to  make good buUding contracts signed with  its membership and to remove leans from  houses before it seeks further action either  through the B.C. Superintendent of Insurance or the courts.  : The hearing resulted in an agreement  by Glenmont Holdings to file a new  prospectus for the subdivision before  further land sales could take place in  Seaside Village. Sales were halted three  weeks ago..  B.C. superintendent of insurance Tom  Cantell said. after the hearing the  association's problems would be dealt with  if need be when the prospectus is re-filed.  At the hearing, lawyer Scott Stewart,  who represented Interfacial Designs, S.W.  James Ltd., Union Steamships Ltd. and S.  James revealed Union Steamship's intention of selling three and one-half acres  of its Bowen Island property to cover some  $150,000 owed by Interfacial Designs.  Stewart' said the money from the  property sale would be loaned to Interfacial Designs at no interest and would  be used, "to put existing land and home  purchasers in Seaside Villages in the  position they should be in."  Bud Gairns, president of Interfacial  Designs, has said building construction in  Seaside Village is eight months behind  completion dates called for on housing  contracts.  He said the property,to be sold was  appraised at $150,000 two years ago and  that he expected it to be worth more now.  "Hopefully the land sale will bring at  least the $150,000 we have been talking!  about." The land to be sold is apparently a  waterfront property at Snug Cove.  How this money would be spent was  detailed on a piece of paper that was  handed to Cantell when he presided over  the hearing.  The paper indicates the money will pay  off $28,000 in refunds to five people and  remove some $88,000 in liens. Stewart said  the key was to remove the leans so banks  would lease mortgage monies on  properties. Liens by building material  suppliers are against eight homes.  Stewart said the property would be sold  as fast as possible but gave no date on  when.Interfacial Design could expect the  loan.  He said a contract is in the process of  being signed > with a building supply  company to supply materials for houses  being built by Interfacial Design.  Also at the hearing was Glen Grippen,  president of Glenmont Holdings Ltd., and  he agreed with a proposal put forward by  Cantell that would see no further sale of  land in Seaside Villages until a new  prospectus was filed and approved by him  for the remaining 131 unsold lots in the  subdivision.  There had been six prospectuses  covering the subdivision.  Cantell had placed the stop sale or lease  of land order by Glenmont Holdings Ltd.  three weeks ago for five alleged contraventions of the real estate act.  Ten members of the Seaside Village  Property Owners Association attended the  hearing.  Nev Munroe, counsellor for Glenmont  Holdings Ltd., pointed out that although  Glenmont holds title to the unsold lots in  Seaside Village, it had nothing to do with  the building of homes.  He contended that there had been no  mis-handling of funds by Glenmont for  property sales as has been suggested by  cease sale order. L->.,  "For over five weeks Glenmont has  tried to find a way to solve the problems in  Seaside Village. Problems that probably  arose because pf a shortage of Interfacial  Design working capital.  "Glenmont is not involved in home  building but it is in Mr. Crippen's interest  to see the subdivision move. Glenmont  wants to see the unfinished houses finished  so more people can buy lots."  Munroe said in the future land sales  would be kept very separate from house  building sales.  He said the confusion over land and  building sales will not happen because  licensed real estate agents will be brought  in to sell lots and "Interfacial Designs will  not see the cheque for the land in the  future."  In the cease sale order Cantell alleged  purchasers were being sold a lot and a  house on the same contract contrary to the  prospectus filed by Glenmont Holdings.  Munroe said although the interim  agreements confused building and lot  sales, the housing contracts were  separate.  When Cantell asked that a new  prospectus be filed by Glenmont, Stewart  said that S. James, Union Steamships and  S.W. James had a 75 per cent interest in  the land. }  Cantell said that although Glenmont is  the registered owner of the land, it will be  necessary to disclose the other owners or on  ��� SeePage A-2  The regional board has opened all Its  committee meetings to the public. The announcement was made last week.  In the past only the regular bi-monthly  meetings of the full board were open to the  public.  Board chairman John McNiven said that  information which could be of value to land  speculators   and   matters   dealing   with  regional district personnel will continue to be  held in camera.  McNevin could give no concrete reasons  for the change in policy other than It seemed  to be an "attitude change"amohg the board  members to the press and public.  ,  You will notice that this weeks Times  carries stories that resulted from last week's  planning committee meeting. This Is the first  time the press has beep able to do so.  Canada can expect to have a 200 mile  fishing limit within two months according to  MP Jack Pearsall.  The MP told The Times Friday that he  expected an announcement to come from the  federal government within two months  concerning the 200 miles limit.  - Pearsall was sent to the Law of The Sea  conference held recently in New York as  parliamentary advisor to the conference  delegates. He said he came out of the meeting  with the feeling that Canada should not  hesitate in declaring the 200 mile limit.  Pearsall said the day following Canada's  declaration to investigage the 200 mile limit,  the U.S. president announced a 200 mile limit  for that country.  When asked how the 200 mile limit could be  patrolled, Pearsall said Canada would have  the patrol aircraft available when they  receive their Lockheed patrol planes, plus a  joint patrol situation could be worked out with  the U.S. He added he expected the U.S. and  Canadian 200 mile limits to be instituted at  the same time.  Pearsall said he wanted the setting up of  the 200 mile limit to co-incide with an  enlarged salmon enhancement program for  the Canadian coasts.  Don Lockstead, MLA for Mackenzie,  said Wednesday he has asked the  provlncal minister of environment to  rescind tho water lease issued to Halfmoon  Bay Estates Ltd. for a commercial mnrlna  at Porpoise Bny in Sechelt.  Ijockfltcnd said he took this action  because of protests he received a year  ago when tho mnrlna was publicly  discussed and protests ho has received  recently. He did not say how many people  protested.  He also said the wuter lease was  granted against his personal recommendation and that )ic considered the  lease Issuance contrary to good marine  planning In the area.  lie said he hoped the minister would  look Into the circumstances around which  the lease was Issued and asked him If the  matter should bo raised In the legislature.  ' l/oekfilead luul said the loauo wan  Issued against recommendations made by  the province's Fish and Wildlife Department, the federal fisheries and environmental report made by the Department of liuula.  He Bald he "couldn't believe the lease  , was Issued'* as he got deeper Into his In  vestigation surrounding how the Issuance  camo about.  "There was a public outcry against the  mnrlna and petition signed that disagreed  with it; I don't know why this was  neglected."  I��n Vnn Egmond, the owner of Halfmoon Bny Estates Ltd, was Issued a letter  of allowance for a water leaso March 25  and he has started to build a boat mooring  facility and parking lot on tliat lease. He  considers it part of a good housing  development he has planned In Sechelt.  The water lease la for foreshore on Porpoise Buy which Is 150 feet deep and 750  feet wldo.  Because lt Is common knowledge Van  Egmond nnd wife Suznnno were Involved  in the Social Credit campaign for the Dec,  11 provincial election, Ixwkstcad wns  asked If ho thought there was political  Interference In tho Issuance of'the water  lease. '  lockstead wild he luul no intention of  discussing political Interference on tho  public record nnd that he hnd no proof of  such.  But he said, "even If there was no  political interference, the marina should  not liave been approved from a planning  point of view."  Investigations conducted by tho Times  liavo revealed no political interference! In  fact, thcr was a recommendation for the  lease Issuance from the district lands  supervisor before tho election. Tho investigations also pointed out that if the  marina was to be stopped, it was up to tho  Sechelt Village council If the marina en  vironmental Impact was low.  When Van Egmond submitted his  application for a water lease to the Lands  Department two and one-half years ago,  his   proposal   was   given   to   various  The provincial department of environment told Sechelt council Hint the  Van Egmond marina Is not a pollution  liazard and that tho department assumes  Sechelt council represents vlllago  residents in, the marina matter,  In a letter to council, I^irry Sorkln,  district land manager, said he expects  "very llttlo pollution to occur because Van  Egmond's water lease forbids llvc-  nhoards to use the marina nnd because  Van Egmond has stated no gas or oil will  Iks sold from It."  Sorkln was replying to a village query  on what to tell people who complained  about  the marina from an environmental vlow  point. The village liad no technical data on  the environmental Impact of the marina,  Sorkln said, "environmental concern  Is like motherhood.  "It Is easy for someone (to holler  pollution if they wnnt to stop a project but  they should Ikj able to become moro  specific."  On the matter of past and recent public  protest to the marina Sorkln stated "your  council deliberated long, held public  meetings and finally concurred with the  development. I haven't seen any environmental statements on this subject  that stand up to closo analysis,"  Sorkln. answers concern expressed  about the lack of flushing action in the bay  with another question. "If there Is no  pollution what does flushing action matter?" He suggests Uint flushing action  should be good because Uie marina is not  at the end of Porpolso Bay,  He Huid that overcrowding In the l>ay  depends on view point. He asks council for  Its views on what would bo overcrowding.  As far as noise goes, Sorkln suggests  aircraft using the bay make more noise  than boats and tliat boat owners are  required to abide by Federal Boating  regulations.  Sorkln rccoommends to council to ask  complainants about the ninrlnn three  questions.  They arc:  1. What specific type of pollution do  they expect to occur? Wluit are the  pollutants?  2. What damage or environmental  degradation do Uicy expect to occur from  the pollution?'  3. Will It affect marine plant and  animal life? And If so what life?  government environmental agencies for  comment.  tarry Sorkln, district land manager for  the Department of Environment, said last  Tuesday tliat his file on the Van Egmond  water lease contains n letter from the  Federal Fisheries Service'dated July 29,  1975 which stated Uie service had Inspected Uie mnrlna site July 4, 1975 and  that it was Its opinion the proposed marina  would not affect Uie fisheries resource.  Any application for a land or water  lease passes through Sorkln's'hands nnd  ho makes 11 recommendation to Al  Rhondcs,. assistant director of Land  Management who ultimately gives approval or disapproval to an application.  Sorkln said Uiat ho recommended the  Issuance of the water lease by Rhoadcs  September 8, 1975 because the Fisheries  Service had no objection, there appeared  there would be little pollution slnco Vnn  Egmond's mnrlna would cater to no hoaso  Iwats or llve-abonrds and no gas or oil  would bo sold and because he Uiought  mere was no way to evaluate Uie complaint that Porpoise Bay would become too  crowded with the marina,  However it appears Hhoades did not act  ��� See Page A-3  * /  >���  MORE ABOUT...  o Real estate hearing  ���JFrom Page A-l  interests in the land. Both parties agreed.  Cantell "said a priority would be put on  approving the new prospectus filed by  Glenmont Holdings and the other interest in  the land.  The   hearing   was   adjourned   indefinitely. Stan James was not present.  When Cantell was asked after the hearing  whether he had addressed himself to the  problems of the people who had entered  agreements to buy lots and homes but had  either not received title to their land or who  did not have completed homes, he said the  only authority he had was under the real  estate act but that these problems would be  dealt with when the propsectus was re-filed.  He said he considered this a breathing  space for the companies involved in Seaside  Village to clean up the problems.  Munroe asked Cantell at the beginning of  the hearing to have the press excluded.  However Cantell said there1 were only extreme cases when the press need be excluded  from a hearing and that he did not consider  this one of them.  It was revealed that Interfacial Designs  owes money totalling over $150,000 to 21  companies and two government agencies.  Ken Beaton, the business consultant who  compiled the figures on Interfacial Design's  financial position told the hearing he had done  so on facts that were supplied by Bud Gairns.  The financial statement also showed that  Interfacial Designs expects to lose $18,000 on  the construction of 14 homes.  Three members of- the property  association met with the press Friday.  Present were Ron Moorcroft, Bob Haley and  F. Smith. Each have mechanics liens against .  their properties in Seaside Village and two  have been wating some eight months for  proper completion of their homes.  Because they feel it is in their own best  interest to talk to the press while at least  three association members are present, their  statements are attributed here to the  'spokesmen', indicating they were speaking  for the group, not for themselves as individuals.  xThey said they found the hearing confusing and did not know whether Glenmont  would be allowed to sell land again before  their housing problems with Interfacial  Designs were resolved.  They said they were prepared to wait only  30 days for Interfacial Design to take action in  their interests before they would seek help  again.  First they would seek help from the B.C.  Superintendent of Insurance but if no help  was avaUable there, they will take legal  action, they said.  They felt they were In a strong legal  position and that they would not devulge all  their individual grievances to the press  because they felt it necessary, "to keep some  aces in the hole."  The spokesman said four of the 18 parties  they represent are actually in their homes in  Seaside Village and that the rest are waiting  for their homes to be completed. They said  some have been waiting since last summer  when the homes were supposed to be completed.  Referring to Mrs. Bahnman and the recent  publicity she has been given over her unfinished house, they said "she is just a drop  in the bucket and that some people are in a  worse position than her. There are some  really sad stories."  One family apparently moved into their half  finished house because they didn't have the  money to go elsewhere. They lived in the  basement of the house without proper  plumbing facilities while Interfacial Design  worked on the upper level."  The group expressed fear that bad  publicity given to the subdivision would  jeopardize their chances of getting their  homes. This, they said, was the reasonithey  had not talked to the press in the past.  They still are not sure mat Interfacial  Designs will not declare bankruptcy. They  said they had been told by a principal of  Seaside Village that they should; "keep quiet  in the interests of seeing Uie subdivision move  ahead."  On the matter of separate contracts for  land sales and homes, the group agreed that  when they purchased their homes they were  not told they could buy the lot and house  _ separately, although they never asked.  When each of the group purchased their lot  and home, they said they were not shown  copies of Glenmont's prospectus. "We didn't  even know we had the right to sec such a  thing."  Ono reason the cease sale was applied to  Hie PABTHENON  "Tho f Inoat rostaurant In town"  Page A-2  -The Peninsula Times  Wednesday, April 28,1976  BESIDE  BUS DEPOT  COZY CORNER CAMERAS  * camera and darkroom supplies * repairs  * photofinishing * passport pictures  7   886-7822        -   - -   Gibsons  for the best in mobile CB, shop  the nationwide CB supermarket  ���.&A*J^]&&^>&tt*W"*>*>*  the subdivision was the failure to show  purchasers the propsectus and keep receipts  showing purchasers had read it, according to  the insurance superintendent.  ;At the hearing Stewart conceded Glenmont's agents in Seaside Village had not  complied to the real estate act with respect to  showing people prospectuses before September 1975 when the situation, they said.was  corrected.  Most people in the association purchased  their lot ahd house before September 1975.  Moorcroft said that he knows of one family  that will be desperate for a house at the end of  June and he suggested that Bud Gairns  should move out of the house he uses for an  office and give it to these people until their  house is finished.  Although their problems with Interfacial  Designs are many, and have dragged on for  months, they also asked themselves where  the village building Inspector was when they  look at craftsmanship in the homes that they  consider, shoddy.  After the hearing Bud Gairns contacted  the Times. He said the liens by one buUding  supply company had been lifted. That leaves  five other companies with liens against the  * property.  When asked how Interfacial Designs could  miscalculate Its costs and end up $150,000 in  the red on 42 houses, he said he agreed that  the loss was substantial and that it will have,  to be recouped in the company's future  building operations.  He also said that "neither I nor Union  Steamships would allow Interfacial Designs  to go bankrupt."  Although the title of Uie unsold land in the  subdivision is in,Glenmont Holding's name,  Gairns said, "that it only a mortgage and  Stan James still owns the land."  He said, "a complicated management  contract exists between James and Glenmont  Holdings and when the mortgage is paid off,  the land reverts to James."  He said he thought that the B.C. Inspector  of Insurance would approve the new  prospectus before Interfacial Design had to  have all its building contracts up to date.  Cairns had told the press two weeks ago  Interfacial Designs had been re-funded by a  $240,000 loan from Union Steamships.  Stan James, the president of Union  Steamships Ltd., has said numerous times  the Sechelt project is a model of how the  private sector can produce low cost housing.  He said profits were being made off the land  sales and houses.  MORE ABOUT... ,  �� Illegal dumping  ��� From Page A-l  litter problem as bad as now.  On the B and K Logging Road, neat little  piles of household garbage sadly Intermingle  with the walking trails that are being cut in  the woods by the regional board as part of a  park site.  But is not only a question of visual  aesthetics, littering could create a health  hazard. Some garbage on the Band K Logging  Road, for example, is finding its way into  Clack Creek, the- water supply for some  Roberts Creek residents.  "With people dumping all over the place,!  dare say there is a health hazard," says  Mulligan. "There is supposed to be regular  inspection of water supplies but with the  shortage of health inspectors I dqn/t think its  getting done all that often."  In heavy rains, water runs down the  logging road to Clack and Roberts Creeks.  Much of this water runs through household  gargabe picking up pollutants - that could  easily cause hepatitis, says Mulligan.  He believes most littering in the Peninsula's forests can be credited to local  residents too lazy to travel to dumps. He  doubts tourists are responsible for much of it.  Under the powerline stagnant green pools  lie near piles of garbage. A heavy rain would  wash the water in nearby Clack Creek.  Mulligan has rumaged through all the garbage In search of anything that will tip him  off to those responsible for the mess.  "I'm much madder than sickened by the  smell and sight of the garbage, so I look  through If all."  Mulligan says one of his primary  He says It seems his government agency is  one of the few interested in the problem but he  hopes others such as the forestry department  will also attempt to lay charges under the  Litter Act.  responsibilities is to see that forests and  creeks remain unpolluted for wildlife but the  fact is people are using this water too. "It's a  continuing fight to keep the water quality  high."  SECOND PLACE in the recent Pacific  Motorama car show in Vancouver won  Herman Wegener of Sechelt and his  black 1952 Ford Monarch an invitation  to summer car shows in Seattle and  Portland. Wegener placed second in the  altered stock restoring class and was  beaten out by an American model '57  Chev. He's proud of the achievement not  only because he did all the restoration  work on the Ford himself; but because  he drives the car everyday as his  primary source of transportation.  ���Timesphoto  �� Lowest priced ARS/SSB mobile we've seen!  23 AAA Channels and 46 SSB Channels ...

PEARSALL; There will be no forcing of.  wharves on local governments.  TIMES: What about through maint-  neance?  PEARSALL: Public works make periodic  Mr. Jack Pearsall  MORE ABOUT...  @ Marina lease.  ��� From Page A-l  Sorkin's recommendation until a report was  received from the Fish and Wild Life Branch  and the Lands Department's environmental  study was completed.  On Dec. 8, eight months after being asked  for its comments, the Fish and Wildlife  Department filed a recommendation that the  lease should not be approved because Porpoise Bay was an important recreational area  and a development of this kind requires a  more detailed impact study, according to  Craig Benson, a technoligist with the habitat  protection service of the branch.  Benson said his agency had no specific  environmental objections to the marina but it  was the branch's policy to encourage total  planning in connection with the coastal environments.  He said the branch preferred not to see a  piecemeal development of the coast, but one  that was consistent a comprehensive  management of the coast.  Sorkin said one reason the lease application was held up for so long was because  of opinion aired publicly last year.  "But from an environmental point of view  I could not object,"  He said that because the application was  submitted long before the provincial election  and the approval came shortly after the  election "it does look bad," but that it was  purely circumstantial.  Al Rhoades said from Victoria Tuesday  the environmental report prepared by his  department, and referred to by Lockstead, on  the marina was submitted to him Jan. 8,1976.  He said the report recommended against the  marina because there would be damage to a  small beach near the marina.  Rhoades said he sent letters to'. Van  Egmond    and     Sorkin  stating   he  was  was prepared to recommend against the  lease for reasons based on the report.  He said he was not prepared to.recommend the lease at that time because he  wanted more information.  Rhoades said that because it was found the  environmental report had so many fundamental technical inaccuracies concerning  the beach and the flow of water that he had to  re-consider his decision and recommend the  lease be approved.  He said Lockstead was upset when he  would not give him a copy of the report. "How  could I give him something that was inaccurate?" (  When asked what affect pubUc opinion had  on his decision to issue the lease Rhoades said  that he, had to assume the village council  spoke for the will of the people. He said he had  the protest petition on file as well as  Lockstead's recommendation against the  marina.  "The village seemed to have amended its  zoning by-law to accommodate the marina  and it voiced no objections to it.  "Had the village objected then the lease  would not have been granted."  The village's new zoning by-law which has  not yet been approved by Victoria accommodates the Van Egmond marina.  Rhoades said the leaso was issued on the  basis of "assumed acceptance by Victoria of  the new zoning by-law."  Ho said tliat Van Egmond had never been  flatly turned down in the years his application  was under review.  On political interference, Rhoades said  .there had been none and that "in fact, this  minister has been conspicuous by his absence."  Van Egmond was issued a letter of  allowunco for his lease March 25. Rhoades  said the complete leaso will not bo Issued until  Vnn Egmond states he accepts the leaso  terms and has a legal survey done on the  waterfront.  Ho snld It Is common practice for a person  to begin work on the basis of a letter of  allowance and he could sco no problem with  the fact Van Egmond has started a land fill  for the murlna'H parking lot.  repairs to the wharves in their rounds.  TIMES: What's your impression of Joe  Clark, the new Tory leader?  PEARSALL: Joe Clark has been thrust  into a make or break situation. He.'s not in an  enviable position. He has to smooth a few  ruffled feathers and appease so many and  pacify others. He's avoided making use of a  number of seniors, fcont benchers. They've  been moved back when it came to selecting  his shadow cabinet and there will have to be  some pacifying there. At the same time, he  didn't choose some of the hot shots, the hot  doggers. Right now he's trying to emcompass  areas where he is weak like Quebec. I was a  little surprised to see that he has looked after  all 14 of the people who ran against him in the  leadership race. He's found positions for  them all.  TIMES: What effect has he had in the  House?  PEARSALL: The discipline has tightened  up the party. That is, it tightens up as long as  he is there. It's still too early to tell what effect he's really having. You need at least a  year to show your real mettle in the house. Of  course, he still over-shadowed by the Old  Master. Trudeau is really the master of the  House.  TIMES: Is there a Liberal leadership  convention upcoming?  PEARSALL: No.  TIMES: Any sign of one?  PEARSALL: No.  TIMES: Hint?  PEARSALL: No.  TIMES: Indication?  PEARSALL: No? ���    -  TIMES: There is a feeling that the  prosecution in the Sky Shops affair was taken  out of the hands of the Quebec judiciary .  because the RCMP were not happy with the  way the Quebec judiciary were handling the  case."  PEARSALL: The RCMP were instructed  by Solicitor General Warren Allmand to  make a complete investigation. That was'  done and the solicitor general was advised  that action could be taken. Now, in Quebec,  they conduct their investigations a little  differently. The evidence is reviewed by a  Quebec supreme court judge and if he feels  there are grounds, then the next steps are  taken.  TIMES: What do you think of the inference .  that the RCMP took the investigation to  Ontario much to the annoyance of the so-  called Montreal Mafia, the Montreal based  power group.  PEARSALL: I have no comment on that.  The number on topic here presently is gun  control I have done radio and television  statements on it and the letters'are still  pouring in.  TIMES: More so than capital punishment?  PEARSALL: I got about eight, no about a  dozen letters regarding capital punishment.  Mind you I know the area has a very high  retentlonist percentage; but on gun control, I  get about 200 letters a week- all against. That  is, they are all opposed to the bill as it  presently is and I must say that I am too,  We are going to have gun controls whether  we like lt or not. This riding has miles of  hunting country. There has to be a bill with  common sense which won't impede. There  are some parts of the present bill which anger  and amaze the average person.  TIMES: Would you call it a 'city bill?"  PEARSALL: It has the implications of  being a city bill. There are problems of  country versus city. The country folk don't  want it the way It is. All the outdoors clubs In  the country hove been sending in presentations, singling out sections they felt were  Improper. The Important tiling is that they  then made Alternative suggestions. A  telegram was sent 16 all outdoor clubs from  (Justice Minister) Ron Bnsford and (Solicitor  General) Warren Allmand inviting the  presentation of briefs. Unfortunately the  telegram wos unclearly worded ond indicated  an invitation to all clubs to give individual  briefs. Tliis, of course, would lie impossible.  The Intention wns for each province to send a  brief, so ten briefs could bo dealt with. It has  to bo on a national basis and they have to be  written briefs. There have been some  changes to the bill already.  , TIMES: What happened at the Law of Tho  Sea Conference?  PEARSALL: I attended the Law of The  Sea Conference as a parliamentary advisor. ,  The conference like most at the UN is a power  struggle. Canada doesn't have that much to  push with: but it does have the expertise on  the subject. We have a good.concept of our   .  fishing industry and our fishing controls are  good, here. It was obvious that we weren't1  going to settle the 200 mile limit at the New  York meeting.. ,v  I reported tliat the Minister of Fisheries.  Romeo LeBlanc, who was coming into the  U.S. as I was leaving. The people at the"  conference knew what I was going to tell him  and they didn't attempt to change my approach.  I told LeBlanc that we had to declare a 200  mile limit. I said I had comitted myself qh  radio that there had to be a 200 mile limit in .;  1976 even if it was unilateral. The following,  day, External Affairs Minister Allah  MacEachen announced Canada was intending to take a serious look at a 200 mile  limit. The following day, the president of the  U.S. declared and signed a 200 mile limit.  That cleared the way for us to go ahead. I  expect in the next two months there will be a  statement.  TIMES: How could Canada patrol a ,200  . mile limit when it can't patrol a 12 mile limit?  PEARSALL: We don't have the ships to  patrol it; but we do have the aircraft. Well,  we will have when the Lockheed thing is  straightened out. With the U.S. declaring we  can have joint participation on patrol. The  U.S. fishermen are no problem. There are  built-in agreements there.  Another thing we must look at is our  salmon enhancement. A? good salmon  enhancement program could take eight years  because of the life cycle of the fish. It is hard  to run a good program with a 12 mile limit.  Canada must push that limit far enough out.  At the conference Russia gave indications  they were changing their opinions. If the  Japanese are witii us and the Russians are  changing their minds, I can't see any  problem.  TIMES: What are you up to?  PEARSALL:   Well,   the   B.C.   federal  Liberal caucus committee will be meeting in  Powell River soon. That consists of the eight  members and five senators ...  TIMES: Including Louis Giguere?  PEARSALL: No, he and Clarence Campbell are in the penalty box presently. There  will, however, be three French Canadian  members attending the caucus. This is the  first time Quebecers have attended a B.C.  caucus meeting. You know, we out here say  the Quebecers are pulling apart the country  and back there, they say we are. It will be  good to have them come out here and have a  " look around.  TIMES: Who's coming. '���/  * PEARSALL: The names haven't been  confirmed yet: but I have a good idea who  will come.

This  step out of: the dark ages of local  government is something a number of  directors have been working toward for  some time. It will cause, difficulties on  occasion; but we believe that the  business of the people should be conducted before the people.  That is our money which is being  handled and decisions are being made  affecting our land and our future. We  have a right to not only know what  decisions are being made; but how they  are being arrived at.  Meanwhile, a few blocks over sits the  Sechelt Village Hall. Our investigations  of the granting of the lease for the  proposed marina in Porpoise Bay found'  no improprieties; but we did learn that  had Sechelt Council voiced an opposition  to the marina, the granting agencies,  would have looked more closely at the  situation.  Sechelt Council not only ignored local  protests but worded their new zoning  bylaw to allow the marina construction.  We, along with the general public and  apparently one alderman had gone for a  year with the impression that the council  had objected to the marina. Meanwhile  the application was being processed.  What we don't understand is why, in  this day of supposed enlightenment,  would a council carry on in such a  manner blatantly ignoring the opinions  expressed at a public meeting,. in  several letters, by a*local wildlife group  and by interested individuals and  parties. Their actions were done without  making any attempt to explain their  reasons to the groups in opposition.  An interesting juxtaposition.. The  regional government making the public  privy to all its decisions and the formulation thereof and Sechelt council,  placing itself far above the general  public, totally ignoring the public's  opinions.  The regional board opening Its  committee meetings to the press and  public may cause one problem. Earlier  this year, an internal regional board  report concerning ferries was leaked to  the press. Too many people read the  report and believed it to be board policy.  It wasn't and isn't, of course.  In the same recommendations of the  board's various coinmittees do not mean  a thing until they are accepted by the  board  at  one  of the  two  monthly  meetings. This must be understood.  Times staff has been instructed to  make the distinction as clear as possible  in their writing of regional new stories;  but the general public must also be  conscious of the difference.  By the way, we are in total  agreement with the concept of leaking  reports to the press.  Some realities must be faced.  It would be nice for all of the Sunshine  Coast's communities to be a showplace  of finely designed, painted and landscaped single family houses on large  lots; but in light of housing shortages,  land costs, construction costs, mortgage  costs and land restrictions, it just is not  realistic.  Locally, not much can be done about  the first four; but something can be done  about the latter.  Mobile homes, are not pretty. They  can be, of course, with a little owner  care and thought. They are inexpensive,  relatively speaking and although not as  good an investment as a house; they are  a residence, a home.  Mobile homes are presently excluded  from Rl, single family residential  zoning. .  Why are they?  They are single family residential  units with a price range most families  can afford. Also it has been the case that  many people will purchase the lot of  their choice, put a mobile home on it  while they pay off the lot. Then, with the  lot paid for, they start construction of  their permanent home to replace the  mobile home. There have been a large  number of such incidents on the Sunshine Coast and in many of them, the  first residence was little more than an  airstream trailer.  We would suggest that the concept of  a single family residential dwelling is  still valid contingent on mobile homes  being considered single family dwellings  and allowable in RI zoning. This  amounts to elimination of the RI and RII  zoning into a single zone for single  family residences.  In this case, aesthetics must be set  aside to allow familes to cope with the  realities of living here and now.  We're not experts on the real estate  act.  We're a bit baffled by propsectuses  and the fine print of it all.  We do know, however, that there are  a number of residents (and propsective  residents) of Seaside Village in Sechelt  who are not very happy with the way  they have been treated in their business  dealings with the Stan James-Union  Steamships-Interfacial Designs-  Glenmpnt Holdings octopus.  We also know the inspector of insurance has suspended all land sales in  Seaside Village. The inspector has indicated he will not permit sales until  Seaside Village's problems, with the  residents there have been straightened  out.  We support him in this and formally  ask that no more land sales be permitted  at Seaside Village until the existing  situations with all residents there and all  difficulties and disputes have been  ironed out and all grievances, be they  between residents and companies or  between companies, be ironed out to the  satisfaction of the residents.  There are people there who have  invested money in good faith and are  entitled to have their expectations lived  up to. To allow more land sales without  correcting existing problems may lead  to further complications of the situation.  Better to straighten out the present  mess, go back to square one and start  again, even if.it costs the company  $150,000.  Death penalty clucks responsibility  PENINSULA     ,  DATELINE  by Leslie  Yates  "Let's see new  tables, tires, turpentine, treated sewage... Ah  we are - tank cars."  here  UllllllteS by Don Morberg  Sir: After watching the pro and ontl stands  on capital punishment over many months, I  cannot let this Issue drop without saying that,  although I think most of the basic issues nnd  principles were missed, my beliefs are with  tho minority within the Western provinces  that are against It.  In your report on tho meeting on Justice  held recently in Sechelt, I did not notice  mention of any real (JUT issues of social  responsibility. Ry thnt I mean that those who  should have their heads on tho block aro tho  profit hungry sponsors nnd producers of the  porno-vlolcnt type of TV and movie programs  that our young people are weaned upon.  Thesjo programs contain an overemphasis on  competitiveness. They subtly portray condoning of. sleazy business practices, and the  deep frustrations caused by tho contradictions between these prngrnms viewed  dnlly, and the upbringing of our children  according to conventional moral principles  are enough to cause murder, if economic and  emotional pressures build up sufficiently.  History shows that the death penalty is no  deterrent to murder. (Witness such situations  as prisoners bumping cacli other off in San  Qucntin some years ago in the vory next cell  to the dreaded chair cell.)  I am also opposed to death penalties  l>ecause any research clearly shows that tho  percentage of those suspected of homicide  who ore convicted and sentenced to cither life  or capital punishment who have a  background of low Income, of being dark  skinned, In a minority group, or of being one  our own native Indians is out of all proportion  to their numbers In the population. Those  from comfortable upper Income, middle-  class background are often dealt with  leniently, almost apologetically. No ono ha��  yet proven to me that in North America we do  not have a law for the rich and a law for the  poor. The highest percentage of MP's who nro  committed to vote for the death penalty are  from the richer provinces and constituencies  -Interesting! John Daly,  Garden Bny  . I SHOOK my head in disbelief. Could I  really be living this? Here I was, sitting in my  very own living room, watching a hockey  game on my very own television and was  happy because Toronto Maple Leafs were  winning.  As far as I have ever been concerned, the  Tronna Maple Leafs are to hockey what  salmonella is to Christmas.  It started back in the days when the only  hockey games we ever had were the three  weeks the ponds froze over in the gravel pits  back home. We were tough, playing without  pads, protection, insurance, Alan Eagleson,  referees or teeth. Games started at daybreak  and went on until after dark. Although we had  only a three week season, we saw more ice  that Peter Mahovolich's back.  THIS, of course, was back in the days  when more went on before the referee blew  the whistle than after; but that's a matter for  another column.  FOR ATIME, the only access we ever had  to professional hockey was the CBC hockey  broadcasts out of Montreal 'find Toronto.  Being a relatively normal, English-speaking  family the bulk of the tribe threw their vocal  Council changed  minds in face .  of protest  Editor, The Time;  Sir: Belonging to the right political party  and maybe having a bit of money to support it  has been proven many times to pay off, and it  has happened again.  Despite all the public protest, public  meetings and the Sechelt Council voting  against it, Mr. Van Egmond's marina is going  ahead anyway.  The Gibson's Wildlife club was one of those  on record as objecting on environmental  grounds and will continue to protest in the  strongest terms, the flagrant way in which  the objections of our MLA Don Lockstead, the  Fish, and Wildlife branch, the Federal  Fisheries and the Dept. of Lands Branch,  together with those of tho people themselves,  were completely overruled and ignored by  the Sechelt Village Council who apparently  changed their minds about the Marina and  gave the go ahead to Mr. Van Egmond.  Is it any wonder tliat people get cynical  and apathetic about politics, both local and  provincial, when they see tilings like this  liappen right here in their own back yards  and apparently cannot do a thing about It?  If this Is what they call democracy, maybe  it's high time we liad a revolution!  The Executive,  Gibson's Wildlife Club.  Blood clinic  'tremendous'  Editor, Tho Times;  Sir:On behalf of the Co-ordinating Council  I would like to thank you for the splendid  coverage you gave to our recent Blood Donors  Clinic.  The turnout was tremendous.  We would like to thank all those who so  generously gave their blood. As this Is now a  once a year clinic we will look forward to  seeing you all next year.  Our thanks once agnin to all.  P. I-anib  Secretary Co-ordinating Council  Charlotte Raima  Chairman of the Blood Donors Clinic  support behind the Toronto Maple Leafs.  Playing the proverbial pain, I chose toaddmy  solo cheering section to the efforts of the  Montreal Canadiens.  First place, the Stanley Cup, the scoring  title, anything and everything could come  Montreal's way; but if they didn't beat-  Toronto, the season was a dismal failure.  Montreal could be flying high and Toronto in  the dregs of last place; but when they met on  the ice, suddenly all things were equal. Odds  were six to five, take your choice.  BEATING the Toronto Maple Leafs was  all there really was to hockey. Nothing else  mattered: Hot shots teams came and went,  Montreal went up and, down, Toronto had. j3  their day; but the national hockey league was  decided when Davey Keon faced off with Jean  Beliveau at centre ice.  That grew over the years until last week .  when those mangy Maple Leafs were involved in a blood-letting with the Philadelphia  Flyers who make Hells Ang6ls resemble the  Mormon Tabernacle Choir.  Philadelphia, whose motto is 'It is more  blessed to give then to receive', werein the  process of giving another lecture in their  continuing, series of programs on amateur  meat-cutting with the Leafs as the subject;  but they were having a bad night. Captain  Bobby Clark not only missed pre-game meal  of raw meat because he was off his feed; but  early in the gamejhe had lodged his stick in  Borya Salming's gall bladder and Clarke  was unable to extract it, it hindered his play.  Nonetheless Toronto was winning. There's  a story going the rounds that Bernie Parent'  was walking through Toronto when he  stepped out in front of a speeding bus. No  problem, though, the bus went between his  legs. .  The game reminded me Of the time John  Ferguson was asked about a play-off series  between Toronto and Chicago' in the days  when they were both good teams. The winner  of that series was to play the Canadians in the  final. Ferguson commented, "I hope they kill  each other." In those days, of course, it  wasn't taken literally.  THERE I WAS, eating my dinner, hoping  that they cripple each other to the point where  the winner would easily succumb to the  Canadiens. The oddity was that I found  myself hoping Toronto w ould be the survivor  of this game. Never before in my whole life  have I wished victory on anything that wore a  blue uniform; it was all so strange.  THERE IS A REASON why I would have  preferred the survivor be Toronto. You see,  like the snapping turtle which can still bite  though his head has parted company with his  body, any Flyer, even though both arms be  broken, can still perform an amateur  lobotomy by holding the stick between his  gums. A crippled Maple Leaf is only a quarter  of a hockey player because a healthy Maple  Leaf Is only half n hockey player to start w^th.  So there I wos, wishing Toronto would win.  Felt a little strange. I believe there is one  more round of this nbbatolr's conference  before they get on with tho rest of Uie play-off  season.  I KNOW a gentleman ln longdate who is  so old he con remember when players cut  each other with sticks by accident.  I WOULD very much like to sec a Mon-  trcnl-Torohto final series. So would a lot of  othor people. I bet the list is as long ns Davo  Schultz assault convictions.  I THINK lt wns Don Chcvrlcr who, at the  ACTRA awards, said, "I just came from  covering tho Stanley Cup play-offs at Courtroom Number Three."  I HAVE a pretty grizzley prediction hero.  1 predict thnt the 1977 Stanley Cup play-offs  will see a scries called off nnd defaulted  because of uncontrollable violence on the Ice  (and between Uie players and fans as well, for  that matter.)  The stern face of the law cracked a smile  in Sechelt provincial court Wednesday, In  doing so, it raised questions concerning the  .  justification of legal aid cutbacks.  ��� It was all over a seemingly simple parking  ticket.. *     ',"';'  . Neil Hudson, a B.C. Ferries employee, had  intentions of making a guilty plea with a very  lengthy explanation (who doesn't) to a  parking ticket he had.been blessed.with in  Granthams Landing. -. - _  But there was a problem. The crown  counsel,  Hugh McCallum,  had not  yet  received the necessary documents from  Victoria that told everyone, including Neil,  ' that the vehicle dunned with the parking  - ticket actually belonged to the accused.  Now when vital pieces of evidence like that  are missing the court has three obvious  choices. The crown can seek and get an adjournment to another day in the hopes, it can  compile all the evidence, the accused can  ..admit the vehicle is his and the case can  proceed or the judge can throw the whole  matter out of court because he feels it is insignificant and it monopolizes valuable court  time and energy. In other words, if the crown  is going to summons people to court, it should  be ready to proceed unless it is has an excellent excuse.  , In this case, typically stern Judge Ian  Walker could not toss it out of court unless  Neil refused, to admit the ticketed vehicle  belonged to him. This bit of legal logic was  obvious to some but it evaded Neil completely. He seemed willing tovoluntarlly state  the vehicle was his, much to the crown's  satisfaction.  After admitting to his confusion, Neil  verbally mused to the judge, "If the crown  was eventually going to get the necessary  evidence from Victoria, then I might as well  admit the vehicle is mine." r  Upon hearing that Judge Walker rolled  forward on his chair, looked down from on  high, and said "why admit to anything? It Is  up-to the crown to prove the vehicle belonged  to you."  Neil's confusion multiplied. Old catch-22.  If he didn't admit the vehicle was his, what  could happen today if he didn't admit  ownership would just take place another day.  He thought for a second, went a little red and  then finally turned to those in the bleachers  with a puzzled look on his face.  Ripples of laughter began to emerge from  the spectators and those awaiting their 'turn'  before the court.  "You mean to say," Neil began slowly,  "That if I say my truck doesn't belong to me,  I'm not going to be fined for the parking  violation."  "You can't say your truck isn't yours,"  exclaimed the judge, "that would be lying."  More giggles from the spectators. (Normally  the judge-forbids the quietest sneeze inJhis  court.) Neil's face turned a brighter crimson.  This spot of legal ludicracy was becoming  embarrassing.  "All I'm saying," said the judge, "is that if  you had a lawyer he would tell you not to  admit to anything."  "Well, I'm not about to get a lawyer for  this," Neil stated flatly. I'm a lawyer," said  the judge, "andl don't think you should admit  anything."  The judge's serious legal face, the im  partial fascade presented to all wrong doers,  was being betrayed by slight quivers above  his lip. ,   ,  Playing the straight man role and trying to  save his case from total ruin, McCallum stood  up and asked the judge: "Are you a member  of the B.C. Bar Association?"  . Those in the audience were rolling off their  chairs about now and no doubt were, wondering, why they had never come to court to  watch before.  The court clerk was thinking about selling  tickets at the door.  The judge indicated he wasn't a member  of the B.C. Bar, but that he was a lawyer.  . "What do you want to do?", asked the  judge.     . ~  Neil, didn't know.  The judge spied local legal counsellor  Robert Reid sitting in the cheering section  and asked him if he would, as a friend of the  court, give some advice to Neil over the  morning adjournment. Reid agreed, good  public and judicial relations and all that.  Reid explained that the judge appeared to  be looking for a way to throw the parking  ticket out of court. Neil hadn't quite grasped  that possibility.  When the court re-convened, Nell admitted nothing and the parking ticket was  dropped. Next time Neil gets a parking ticket,  I think he'll just pay it.  Besides adding a little humour to what is  normally the sedate operation of drinking  drivers and petty michief makers making  their restitution to society, the great parking  ticket case does have broader ramifications.  A parking ticket isn't a serious matter,but  here was a man which easily could have been  you and I, who was ready to plead guilty when  he was not legally,guilty ��� yet.  A person is innocent in this society until  proven guilty ��� and 'proven' is the catch  -word. Most believe that if they think they are  guilty they are in fact guilty. That's not  necessarily the case. An accused must be  legally guilty and even with this simple  parking ticket it took a lawyer to point this out  to a legal layman.       <  I'm not saying Hudson should have had a  lawyer for his parking ticket, but what if the  matter had been more serious and Hudson  could not have afforded a lawyer (and the  judge was not so unusually benevolent?  Legal Aid in this province has been cut  back by over a $1 million. Cut to the point  where no person charged with summary  convictions will be able-to-receive aid.  Most summary convictions, which carry  at the most, a maximum penalty of $500 or six  months in jail or both, can leave a person  marred witii a criminal record.  When points of law, as Neil illustrated, can  be so confusing, where is the moral wisdom in  cutting back legal help to those who cannot  afford it? Forty-six per cenjt of all legal aid  cases which went to trial in 1975 ended up  being acquitted. Over four out of 10 people  who fought the charge police had given them  were found to be not guilty.  It is interesting to speculate what difference a lawyer made to the fact these  people were acquitted. Without legal help,  how many have pleaded guilty because they  believed they were guilty as charged and just  wanted to get it over with. A lot, I think.  nsicie  Straight'      by Jock Bachop  No doubt the Easter Parade and dance  held recently In the Legion in Madeira Park  has been covered properly by my friend and  colleague, Doris Edwardson; but as'I was  working behind the bar that evening, I  couldn't help overhearing the nice things  being said about the local 'Harbour Lites' and  the home townchoir who won an award at the  recent music festival. They may not be'  professionals but they sure come up with  great sounding music.They are working their  butts off to entertain us and deserve all the  support and encouragement we can give  Uiem. In my book they are tops.  The day after the dance was dear heart's  birthday, so responding to not very subtle  hints, we went out for dinner accompanied by  another couple who are friends and neighbours and having heard good reports about  the cafe at Irvines Landing Marina decided to  give It a whirl.  I have to admit the reports were accurate,  I enjoyed my meal and all tho trimmings and  left a vastly happier man. As they are wont to  say in the 'old country', it was a grand scoff.  Try it, you'll like It.  How cheap Is life? Very intriguing  question, no? Let me explain. Two local  youths, Alan Stlglitz and Bob Kobus were  enjoying some fishing near the A frame (well  known area to local fishing buffs) when they  spotted a capsized boat. They quickly Investigated and rescued two men who said  Uicy hod been In the water for 10 minutes.  After the rescue it took the boys three  hours to tow the boat back to where the men  had come from. In appreciation of what the  boys had done for them tho men presented  each of the rescuers with a rod nnd reel. Fair  enough, It wos a small enough price to pay for  the rescue of themselves nnd the salvage of  their bout but It at least showed they Were  grateful.  The next act of this rapidly becoming  sordid drama shows the return of the men  next day who then took back the gifts thoy had  given in npprcclntlon of being saved nnd to  salve their conscience gave the boys five  dollars each.  Ixird knows the boys were thinking only of  fellow humans in distress when they raced to  Uie rescue not of monetary award; but they  must Ikj wondering wliat kind of people they  pulled out of the briny.  Well I may be wrong, but I think I have a  pretty good idea of the type of people they  are. I think they were the kind of persons who  when finding themselves in a desperate  situation promise themselves and God  everything and anything if only He will get  them out of the jam they are in. When they  are rescued and have had time to dry out and  recover, they liave a remarkable change of  heart and manage to convince themselves  that, they really were not in any danger after  all. Also,,the fishing outfits were expensive  and too good for kids.  What the hell, give 'cm a few bucks - that  will keep them happy.  I sometimes complain about today's youth  but this episode makes me more than ever  understand why the young look askance at us  adults.  If all this makes you feel sick, how do you  think one ot the boys felt when one of the men  rescued threw up all over him?  Oh well, the reports I liave say the men  were not local. I guess I would not have  believed the story If they had been. I expect  that explains everything ...  I notice local volunteer help Is hard at  work splitting and shaping the rock needed ln  the coming erection of Uie Cenotaph. Please,  if anyone can spare the time, contact the  legion and offer your help. Now that it Is  tourist tlmo again, tlie ferries nro hard  pressed to keep up with'the flow of traffic  frantically cliarglng to the Sunshine Coast.  I talked to local resident Paul Barabash  who had to make a trip to 'Big Smokey' Just  beforo the Easter weekend.  No problem getting Uicrc but coming back  lie encountered the ferry lineup at the fairly  new bridge on tho Squamish highway.  Paul has a good command of the English  language and I Imagine from talking to him  he surpassed himself, but anyway, ho decided  to go back to town, take a hotel room and try  again nt around 5 a.m, the next morning. This  ho did arid setting off confidently nt tho break  of dawn was astounded and mortified to find  himself in the lineup at almost the same spot  on tho highway he had loft In disgust tho day  before. I guess Paul made up some new words  then.  I hate to think what it's going to be like,  during the summer. / ������:���  ' 'j  _ /  Wednesday, April 28,1976       The Peninsula Times    Page A-5  6TH ANNIVERSARY!  tiring our Birthday Sale, w  marking down these area r  \  close as we can get to our  L  'lib  No one can halt inflation completely, but we're trying!

Hotels Association Luncheon was  held in the Pender Harbour Hotel dining room  on Thursday, April 22 at 11:30 a.m.  President of the B.C. Hotels Association is  Frank Burger, who resides in Victoria, B.C.  and who owns the Kings Hotel there. He said  this is the first time there has ever been an  out of town president. B.C. Hotels office in  Vancouver has a staff of six employees, and  Lloyd Manuall is the executive vice president  and the labour relations man.  The B.C. Hotels Association represents 400  hotels, investments of $800 million, $300  million revenue, $75 million payroll and 15,000  employees. One third of the hospitality in B.C.  is created through the hotel industry.  There are 33 directors at large. Those  present at the luncheon were from Cran-  brook, VeYnon, Hazelton, New Westminster,  Langley, Victoria, Vancouver and Prince  George. The mid-year directors meeting will  be in Victoria, B.C. on Monday and the annual  meeting of the B.C. Hotels Assoc, will be ih  Vancouver, B.C. towards the end of October  1976.  After Burger had welcomed everyone, he  said it was a real pleasure to be on the Sechelt  Peninsula, and mentioned, "Hospitality is the  name of our game."'He told Roy Bell, one of  the Pender Harbour Hotel owners, they were  doing a fine job of renovating their premises,  which will be all finished by the time the first  annual fishing derby rolls around.  Joah Westonburg of the Kinsmen  Rehabilitation Foundation of B.C. told  Burger they were all fine people in the Hotels  Assoc., and talked about the Salmon Derby  and hoped it wpuld be the event of the year.  Chief Khot-La-Cha of the Capllano Indian  Reserve was present. He was on his way to  Lund as he is visiting the coastal Indians with  regard to Habitat.,Roy Bell of tho hotel invited the Chief to be one of the judges for the  derby, and he said he would come in full  Indian dress. He has already been official  judge for Indian beauty contests.  Guests at the luncheon were Bob Oddette,  Bob Preset, Joan Westonburg, Jerry Warner,  Doris Edwardson and Yvonne Sullivan.  PageA-6 ���   The Peninsula Times  Wednesday, April 28,1976  Former alderman  Reg Atherton  dies in Sechelt  Funeral services were held Friday for  former Vancouver alderman Reg Atherton,  74, who had been living in retirement at  Sechelt.  He died April 19.  Born in London, England, Atherton was  educated in Alberta and B.C. and was a  certified general accountant. He. was  president of Harris Investments Ltd. and  chairman of the Board of Trade's real estate,  insurance and financial bureau.  He was a trustee and chairman for the  Vancouver School Board from 1953 until 1957,  when he entered city hall politics.  Atherton was an alderman for seven years  from 1957 and he retired to Sechelt in 1969.  From 1959 to 1961 he was active in a  campaign for electoral reform of civic  politics, pushing, unsuccessfully for a 30-  member city council.  Atherton also tried to enter the provincial  legislature three times as a Conservative  candidate in Vancouver-Point Grey but was  unsuccessful.  In 1970, Atherton was made a freeman of  the City of Vancouver.  He is survived by his wife Virginia, son  Jay or Ottawa, and daughter, Mrs. Myrna  Waller of Victoria.  Service was held at Boal Chapel, 1505  Lillooet, North Vancouver.  The Alliance, comprised of the Sechelt,  Squamish and Musqeam Bands, hosted a  workshop on Economic Development on  Indian Reserve Lands at the Squamish Band  office in North Vancouver.  Bands who are planning development of  band land were invited to send representatives to exchange ideas and experiences  and to discuss problems encountered in the  various stages of development.  Although the weather was extremely bad,  the workshop was well attended and band  representatives from Alert Bay, Vancouver  Island, the Fraser Valley and the Lower  Mainland had the opportunity to discuss  candidly the problems of the development of  lands which are held in trust by the Crown.  The involvement of Indian Affairs and  Justice Department came in for sharp  criticism at times and the need for more band  involvement and input was strongly urged by  the bands who have had experiences in  dealing with, both Indian Affairs and Justice  personnel.  The workshop, in the opinion of those in  attendance, was worthwhile and should be  convened on a regular basis.

Don Hehn, regional land manager, told  council his department "regrets the  disposition of rock fill, which occurred in  trespass, on the beach fronting Sechelt."  "We believe the large rocks present a  hazard to the public, block access to the  beach and detract from the beach's aesthetic  features." ���  Hehn said storms will wash the sand and  gravel from the boulders increasing the  danger and this will result in -constant  maintenance.  He said the high water mark seaward is  the property of the provincial crown and that  his department requires that permission be  obtained for the purpose of placing a structure or fill on the foreshore.  "We will not allow further dumping. If this  should occur again the person or organization  responsible will be asked to remove it."  The only alderman to comment on Hehn's  remarks at Wednesday's meeting was  Morgan Thompson. He said the village had  done a similiar rock fill eight years ago and  no government agency said anything.  The village used rock from a department,  of highway's road blasting operation to  reinforce the beach. It allocated $5000 for  machinery to dig the rocks into the foreshore.

In a letter to Gibsons Village Council, the  MLA said that he had not been able to receive  any information from the department of highways until the provincial budget was tabled.  Lockstead said that since the budget was  presented, he met with department of highways management with regard to capital  highway programs for this constituency. It  was in this meeting he learned the two  projects, which had been previously committed to, were not to be in this year's  program.    '���   . .  Lead-zinc deposits at Pine Point, located  500 air miles north of Edmonton, were  discovered as early as 1898 when prospectors  heading for the Klondike met Indians who had  fashioned musket balls and fish weights from  the metal.

This recommendation seems to have  resulted from people asking the regional  tinder gov  Two local youths pleaded guilty to offences  under the government liquor act in Sechelt  provincial court Wednesday and were fined  $25 each.  Gary Gow, 17, was charged with, being a  minor in possession of liquor after the car in  which he was a passenger was searched by  RCMP in Blue River, B.C. on March 23. The  case was transferred to Sechelt.  The court was told police found 19 bottles  of beer in the car and that the others in the car  were also under 19 years old.  When Judge Ian Walker asked Gow what  he and his friends were doing with the beer,  Gow replied they were thirsty.  Walker said "you should have been  drinking pop or milkshakes at your age."  Morton Graham, 17, was charged with  being a minor in a licensed premise while  Gibsons RCMP were on a routine check at the  Peninsula ;Hetel March 27.   The court was told Graham was asked for  indentif ication by police as he was leaving the  bar room at 1:20 a.m.  When Graham refuted evidence submitted  by the crown counsel that suggested he was  under the influence of alcohol, Judge Walker  asked the RCMP officer who laid the charge  to take the stand.  Judge Walker said the question of whether  Graham had been drinking would have a  bearing on the sentence.  Const. Jeff Cramer said that Graham  showed signs of impairment and, it was his  opinion that he had been drinking.  Walker said he had no alternative but to  accept Cramer's testimony although Graham  still said he was not drinking.  Judge Walker gave him two months to  pay.  cSiool board  nlv 'informei  I W   '  of subdivisions  Both Sechelt council and the regional  board's planning committee are willing to  advise the board of subdivision  proposals oh the Peninsula but both agreed  the school board should not be added to the  long list pf government agencies that are  Involved In the subdivision approval process.  At Thursday's planning committee  meeting, Sechelt's regional director Morgan  Thompson said there arc a possible 28  agencies that could get involved with subdivision approvals.       ,  Planner Adrian Stott sold he thought tho  school board was seeking ways of getting help  from developers for schools.  Thompson added: "I'm a subdlvldcr and I  feel there Is enough to go through."  Area B director Peter Hoemberg sold he  thought If tho school board wos advised of  subdivisions and It foresaw a problem, "It  would let that problem be known to tho  regional board."  School board had asked all government  agencies on the Peninsula to pass thcjip-  propriate by-laws to have oil subdivisions  come before the school board for Its approval.  At Sechelt council meeting Wednesday  alderman Dennis Shuttleworth snid that  additional obstacles to subdivision approvals  are not to be welcomed but lie said ho thought  the school board should be Informed of new  subdivisions.  board why they don't enforce then: own bylaws.  Both both chairman John McNevin and  Area B director Peter Hoemberg said they  had been askedthis question numerous times.  Hoemberg said that either the regional  board should enforce its by-laws or .toss them  out.  "There seems to be a double standard,  sometimes they are enforced and other times  they are not. In the past nothing was really  done until there was a neighbours' feud and  the board was forced to act on a complaint."  Sechelt's director Morgan Thompson  queried the group: "Youmean we should hire'  someone to enforce the by-laws?"  Hoemberg said he. didn't think the board  needed to hire anyone,'but that the board  should be consistent.  "We should instruct the staff to act on  violations they see and not wait until there  have been numerous complaints received  over one infraction.  "If we, the staff, see an infraction and it is  ignored, then we are condoning the infraction."  Regional planner Adrian Stott added that  people who comply with by-laws are being  penalized when no action is taken against  those who don't.  "People know that if they violate by-laws  their chances of getting away with it are  good. This board has prosecuted about one  person since its inception," he said.  Gibsons director Jim Metzler agreed with  a directive being sent to all staff instructing  them to act on violations but he did see the  need for some flexibility..    . v   , .    ��-��.  SLOWLY TAKING SHAPE after the  disasterous fire which levelled the  stucture last fall is Hart Crosby's  shakemill on Highway 101 in Roberts  Creek. The former' Boser, Cedar  Products mill' is ��� now being reconstructed on the original site after the  owner received a land-use contract from  the regional board. Crosby said he ex-  "��** __ _ ���_  spects to have the mill operating in  three months. There will be some  changes in the way wood will be handled  at the mill, Crosby said, adding that he  has a plan whereby the- burner at the  back of the mill would be eliminated.  Here Crosby works in the interior of the  first part of the mill to be reconstructed.  n       ���Timesphoto  p Occidental Life  885-3438  P.O. Box 1278 Sechelt _  YMCA rezoning  'up to promoters'  The regional board's planning committee  recommended Thursday, to the board that if  there is to be a re-zOning of the YMCA sub-;,  division in Langdale, then it should be up to  the promotors who sold the land to ask for it.  Residents of the subdivision had asked the  board to change the zoning in the area from  R2 to Rl because they bought their property  with the impression it was zoned Rl.  Residents apparently became upset over  the zoning after they found mobile homes  were being placed on some properties In the  subdivision.  At present no single-wide mobile homes  are allowed in a Rl zone.  The prospectus under which the subdivision was sold said the properties were in  an Rl zone, according to board chairman,  John McNevin. So far there has been no explanation for this.  This matter brought discussion from the  committee on whether the regional board has  the right jto legislate aesthetics only for  mobile homes.  Regional planner Adrian Stott said some  people object to the shape of a mobile home  ond some consider it a lower standard, "but  In general, a home Is a home."  Area B director Peter Hoemberg said that  the position of the previous board was to try  and remove the distinction between Rl and  R2, or the distinction between single family  dwellings and mobile homes.  "The board didn't feel lt should Impose  such an aesthetic control In financially  troubled time."  He said he thought the difference between  III and R2 was being discriminatory ugalast  poor people;  "Is is our role to dictate the design of  homes which Is connected to tho economic  background of people?"  Gibsons director Jim Metzler Bald he  didn't object to double wldes in nn Rl zone.  Double wldes are now allowed in on Rl zone.  Stott added that If the board re-zoned this  subdivision a prcsccdcnt woidd bo set for  others seeking almlllar zoning changes.  Although there was no motion to change  policy in this matter, Board chairman, John  McNiven said that If the promotors misled  people lnthe Ijingdnlc subdivision, then thoy  should fix the problem.  NO PROPOSAL YET  As of Wednesday's council meeting Haden  Killam still had not presented a proposal he  promised to council on how he intended to  bring the OK Tire building up to national  building code standards.  Council had given him until April 26 to fix  the building before it took action to have the  building brought up to standards.,  Council agreed that only after April 26  would it instruct its solicitor to draw up the  necessary by-law to allow the village to  correct the building.  LABOUR FORCE CUT  Council was informed by the province's  department of labour that it will only get two  summer students for maintenance work in  the village this summer instead of the four the "  village had asked for.  LABOUR OFFERED ���  The Elphinstone student council asked the \  village council fpr any wprk, cleaning ditcheij,  or picking up garbage that would pay wages.  The students said they were raising funds for  projects at Elphinstone.  The request has been sent to the Timber  Days Committee. CouncU had not work on  hand in the village.  CONTRACT STDLL IN AHt  Alderman Dennis Shuttleworth, who is also  the road committee chairman, said he will  consider which of two. contract offers for  village road work are the best.  The village has received offers from Irvin  Benner and Coast Paving to supply the  .. village with equipment necessary to carry out  its maintenance programs.  Benner had the contract last year. The  matter was left in abeyance.  MINUTES MAILED.  In reply to a letter from MLA Don  Lockstead which asked for council's comments on the approval of the Van Egmond  water, lease, council decided to send  Lockstead all the meeting minutes and  correspondence connected with the marina  proposal. Most of the minutes and  correspondence are from the time period  shortly after the public meeting called to  discuss the village's new zoning by-law one  year ago.  Council made no comment on Lockstead's  claim the water lease was approved dispite  public protest and the protest of three  government environmental agencies.  Lord Jim Lodge owners want their  property south of Maderia Park declared a  development area so some 70 condominium  units and a commercial area can be built; but  the regional board's planning committee  seemed divided on the proposal. They have  ; sent lt to the Area B planning committee for  consideration.  Regional planner, Adrian Stott said at  Thursday's committee meeting the proposal  presents servicing problems and Is contrary  to the board's policy to direct development  towards higher density areas. He said there  would have to be a sewage system and nn  outfall for the development.  Area B director, Peter Hoemberg said if  the proposal was approved It would change  the concept of how the board expects growth  on the peninsula to take place. "Lord Jim's is  on unfortunate location, for thls��  Board chairman John McNevin agreed  with other committee members that the  proposal looked nice but said "wo could get  100 nice proposals and then end up with a 100  pockets of development, lt Is a question of  orderly growth."  No recommendations for or against the  proposal was made.

Page B-4  The Peninsula Times  Wednesday, April 28,1976  orksho  ���frfi*****.*^^  nysflt^wMSwi-N W-H  . We explored the vegetarian world ih my  night school class this week. We discussed the  various reasons for choosing a vegetarian  diet and found out how to get good protein  without depending on meat. Toward the end  of the class one of my fine students asked,  "Why don't 'they' tell us these things?" So,  for those of you who are interested, here are a  few of the facts.  A vegetarian is, essentially, a person who  depends on the plant world for protein. A few  vegetarians avoid animal products completely, but most will eat eggs, milk and milk  products such as cheese and yogurt.' This  latter type of vegetarianism is the more  nutritionally sound and this the type  recommended.  ps  DIRTY THIRTY; B.C. lions star Jim  Young will be amoung the many Vancouver sports personalities who will be  in Sechelt for the Sportsman's Dinner  May 7. Others on the special guest list  include Bob Daly and Dennis Kearns of  the Vancouver Canucks, Annis Stukas,  Babe Pratt, Peter Legg and Eric  Guthrie of the B.C. Lions.  Sechelt Peninsula Rod & Gun Club is  providing an opportunity for all shooters of  the area'to match their skill with their fellow  nimrods in handling the .22 rifle, shotgun and  large bore rifle.  They are holding a shoot at their clubhouse  on Sunday, May 2nd, starting at 10:30 a.m.  Shooters may participate in all events or only  one or two and there will be awards for first,  second and third in each category and an  aggregate trophy which will be presented at  the Annual Salmon Barbecue and Seafood  Dinner in June. The shoot is open to both  members and non-members.  Spectators will be very welcome says Joe  Mehis, organizer of the event. This will be an  opportunity for them to see shooting from  standing, sitting, prone and bench positions.  They may also participate by trying for a  lucky target where winning has little bearing  on skill.  Refreshments   will   be   available   for  va Peterson  " is tour  morning coffee and lunch. It is hoped the  public will come to see the Club's facilities  and enjoy a family outing.  WHY BE A VEGETARIAN?  For some, the main reason for avoiding  meat is the financial consideration. Meat  prices vary anywhere from 80 cents to $5 a  pound. Plant proteins are much less expensive and range around 40 cents a pdund.  Another reason for cutting out meat is to  lessen the chances of developing heart  disease. There is quite a lot of evidence that  relates high intakes of cholesterol and  saturated fat to heart disease, it is a fact that  many North Americans get too much  cholesterol and saturated fats from their  meat based diet. -,  Many people these days are concerned  with environmental contamination from  pesticides and industrial wastes. It is a fact  that pesticide residues are lowest in plant  foods such as grains, cereals, legumes, fruits  and vegetables. Meat, fish and poultry have  ten times the amount of pesticide residues  than plant foods have. A continuing controversy rages over whether or not these  levels are safe for man. Some people have  decided not to wait until the debate is settled,  and have opted for what they believe is the  relative safety of plants for food.  Some vegetarians have strong moral  reasons for their choice of diet. Our earth is  small, with a large population and limited  resources. A major problem is to produce  enough food to feed each person in the world.  We are presently failing in this task. Every  day men, women and children starve to  death. But it doesn't have to be this way. If we  used our resources properly we could feed the  world. In North America we waste our  protein. For every 21 pounds of protein we  feed to livestock we get only one pound of  meat ih return. It is an amazing waste when  we now have the knowledge to use for ourselves the same grains and legumes we feed  to our cattle. It has been estimated that  through this protein shrinking, 18 million tons  of protein become inaccessible to man each  year. That is enough to give 12 grams of  protein a day to every person on earth for one  year.-North Americans'are wasting protein  while billions'of fellow men are starving to  death. It is a sad statement of our value  system.  PROTEIN  Everybody needs protein to live. Without  protein our bones, skin, hair and nails would  not grow or repair themselves. Without  protein our bodies couldn't make hormones,'  hemoglobin, or antibodies. We need to renew  our protein supply each day because the body  can't store protein.  But what is protein?  Protein is" made up of 22 building blocks  called amino acids. Eight of these amino  acids have to come from our food because the  ..body can't make them. Eggs, milk; fish,  cheese, meat and poultry are known as  ' complete proteins because they each have all  the eight essential amino acids. Plant foods  such as grains, legumes, nuts and seeds are  incomplete proteins because they do not  supply all eight amino acids. But it is possible  to combine grains and legumes, or grains and,  nuts, or nuts and legumes and in this way  . provide the necessary building blocks to the  body. For example, rice is weak in the amino  acide lysine but beans have ah .abundant  .supply of that amino acid. Together they  complement each other and satisfy the body's  heed for essential amino acids. If even one  amino acid is missing, the b6dy cannot use  any of the other building blocks,, so it is very  important to combine foods correctly. A book  that provides many excellent recipes based  on researched combinations is Diet for. a  Small Planet by Frances Moore Lappe. More  good recipes can be found in Ellen Ewald's  Recipes for a Small Planet. The two writers  have collaborated and produced a third book  called Great Meatless Meals.  .

More and more researchers are saying  that for our world to survive in the future, we  will have to rely more on plant foods ahd less  on meat. But is a vegetarian diet safe? Will it  keep body and soul together? In 1974 the  National Acedemy of Science issued a  statement that said 'vegetarian diets can be  adequate if sufficient care is taken in planning them."  Careful planning will certainly provide  enough good protein for the body's needs.  There  are,  however,  a  few  pitfalls  to  vegetarianism that you must be aware of:  Vitamin B12 is not found in plant foods.  For this reason, it is recommended that  vegetarians eat milk, milk products or eggs  or else take a vitamin B12 supplement to  avoid a deficiency. Iron is better absorbed by  the body when it comes from meat than when  it comes from grains and other plants. Many  vegetarians never become anemic, but it is  wise to check with your doctor and take iron  supplements if your iron levels are low.  Whole grains contain a substance called  pythic acid which can keep the body from  using the mineral zinc. Good news though ���  yeast will destroy phytic acid and so it is wise  to include leavened breads in your diet.  One word of caution: children heed more  protein "per pound than adults because they  are growing. They often tend to be picky  eaters and may not like meatless casseroles.  For this reason it is best not to insist that  young children follow a strict vegetarian diet  if they enjoy a meat based menu.  Any questions?

By LAURIE BEEMAN  Last week of Elphinstone was quiet with  the return of students to school after the  Easter holidays.  Students also were forwarded their report  cards as not all of who received them had  smiling faces. Some views that might result  from this is the belief that school to some  students is just a social gathering.  A few women speakers came to the high  school last Wednesday discussing Women  Power to grade 11 and 12 girls. They showed a  half hour film concerning the need for women  to plan careers early in life to help as equals  to man, In the working world.  Last Wednesday, Social Studies teacher,  Mr. Pope and Mr. Fuller, accompanied 19  grade 11 students to Gaslight Square ln  Gastown as to hear a conference about  problems with land use,  The speaker Informed the students that  the main points of his lecture will be brought  up in the Habitat conference in June.Tho  conference will be about human settlement as  embassadors fromall over the world will be  present to discuss solutions to their problems  such as population, housing settlement and  loss of food for overpopulation.  Tho speaker showed film slides of Vancouver's rapid development in one's lifetime.  After on hour of lecturing, students had free  time beforo Journeying back homo. Tho  students Social Studies project from their trip  wos to write a critique on what the whole  lecture was snylng nnd their views. The trip  proved to bo very interesting as some Elphie  students now realize the concern of rapid  overpopulation.  Miss Wilson, girls P.E. teacher, is now  concentrating on forming a school tennis  team. Because the school only got their tennis  courts this year, in the past students were not  able to practice tennis very often. Hopefully  now, more athletic types will join up so we  could have a chance to compete with other  schools.  The Port Mellon Community Club  scheduled to have a tennis court tournament  at Port Mellon last Saturday. The competition  was to be played in doubles.  Remember, the Wilson Creek Community  Association is having a circus coming on May  10 In the Wilson Creek ballpark.

Soon now the song of the two stroke  and the electric motor will be heard in the  land as lawn owners start on the mowing  season.  In this part of the country with its  generally very light and rather unthrifty soil,  growing anything successfully needs particular care and certainly lawn grass is no  exception.  Often this column has spoken of the  miracle of those Jew inches of \topsoil' that  feed the world but has. not emphasized the  rest of the miracle that enables sunlight to  perform major chemical operations in every  leaf and blade of grass. The most casual  glance given with the least modicum of desire  to understand leaves one agasp with won-  \derment.  Philosophizing aside, the survival of the  lawn on which much energy must be expended calls for far more than fertilization  and watering. Most of us would like our plots  of grass to look like a putting green on a golf  course, with the grass shaved to look like a  carpet of velvet. This, necessary on golf  courses, demands far more than the ordinary  homeowner wants to afford on money spent  on fertilizer or time in tender loving care.  Ordinarily, it is a matter of mowing as  seldom as possible and then cutting it short so  that the next mowing is deferred as long as  possible. This is wrong.  Consider that each blade of grass is part of  a growing plant, that it has a job to do by  making use of the sunlight to set the process'  of phptosysthesis into motion to provide  energy for growth. It stands to reason then  that if the leaf Is removed completely or even  almost completely, its ability to do its job is  diminished. Consider too that it is the upper  canopy that holds the green food-making  tissue, and if this is consistently removed,  root growth will cease, and you will have a  "stubble field" of grey brown which will take  a long time to recuperate.  So the answer is, resist the desire to shave  your lawn, leave at least an Inch and a, half of  green grass which certainly will need mowing  more often but which will thrive even in the  hot weather. In the simplest terms, arrange  the treatment of your lawn so that green leaf  can accumulate more energy from sunlight  Uian the grass expends replacing cut-away  tissues.  Because there is a continual demand for a  grass that doesn't grow high, dome of Uie new  'cultivars' has been coined to signify a  cultivated variety of any growing thing  developed to bring out cortaln defined  qualities, nnd in the cade of lawn grass, somo  of these form a heavier .basal growth, thus  escaping the blades of Uie lawn mover nnd  allowing a closer cut without "scalping".  Finally a word on water. Onco more, the  amount of water needed will bo cut down if  the grass Is maintained on the 'long' side.  Next light nnd frequent showers do more  harm than good, since they encourage tho  roots to seek moisture at the surface with  eventual resultant damage when the surface  dries out. So when you water, see thnt you  give sufficient so that there Is good  penetration to the root level even If restrictions limit the watering time permitted. Uso  that time on an area of such sl'/o that lt can  get the maximum benefit,  There Is generally somo controversy over  whether lawn clippings should be removed  nf Lcr mowing or left for their mulching effect.

A square -  dancing we will go. Hi, Ho. the merry-O; a  square dancing we will go. Kindly tell the  drummer that it Is In the key of C, thank you.  April 9, by popular demand, I was once  again on the caller's podium. I don't quite  understand words like, "get lost", "go take a  long walk on the yellow line" or "go home  your wife wants you", I think they are words  of praise?  With over three sets on the floor, half  booed, the other half cheered. I found out  later that the ones who cheered were doing so  on behalf of the ones who booed. Oh well, they  all had a good time because we went overtime  and it sure is nice to be liked. They said that  they would never treat anyone like that if they  didn't like them:  Our guests were Ursula Ucicky from  Vienna, Austria who at present is visiting  with friends in Gibsons. Also present was  G.W.C. Talt from lower Roberts Creek Road,  there were also two other people that I never  managed to get their names, anyway we hope  that they will all be back and that they found  the evening entertaining.  All I have on the Powell River graduation  jamboree was that they had a very good  caller from Van. Island. They square danced  at the Italian Hall at Wildwood. There were  about 150 square dancers and the next  morning was topped, off with a pancake  breakfast. I always miss the good ones,  however I will have more on this next week.  The Country Stars are having their wind  up jamboree at the Roberts Creek Hall May 8  with guest caller Jim McPherson from Dance  Craft, Vancouver, with square dancers  coming from Vancouver area and Powell  River. All square dancers are welcome, about  75 basics, more or less and there is ample  parking on my property on Lockyer Road,  one-half mile west of the Masonic Hall, highway 101. Turn rite, one block off of highway,  up another road right into ouryard. Look for  the Country Stars Square Dance, sign on my  fence. Bathrooms available for changing, Ho-  Kay.  Well, time to go and by the way, an income  tax man was asked if birth control pills were  deductible and he replied, "only if they don't  work." I didn't know that; see you at the  square dance.  Now on April 16 with Harry at the mike,  and over three sets of square dancers doing a  spin chain back, lockit, and a few other calls  that I never heard of too much. Of course, I  was just fantastic on the floor, never made  one mistake. Well, maybe just one. I went  square dancing.  Oh! well, It's one way of being noticed, and  I guess It was my turn to be picked on,  (sniffle, sniffle) but we still had fun and why  not? Good clean fun is the only thing that is  free anymore.  . Our guests were Dan and Sue Lovell, son  ahd daughter-in-law of our lovely secretary;  treasurer Elma and Lome Lovell. We hope  that they enjoyed the evening and when they  get back ^Vancouver, that they join a square  dance group, It is fun, you know.  One more item. Keep in mind the date May  8, place Roberts Creek Hall, caller Jim  McPherson. For information as to billets, call  Harry Robertson at 886-9540, or Maurice  Hemstreet at 885-3359.  Well, I must get along for now but  remember, the readiness with which we  admit a fault or ackowledge a weakness may  be only our pride masquerading as humanity.  I didn't know that; happy square dancing.  Milward of Gibsons. The opening number was  a ballet solo "Plaislr d'Armour" by Christine.  Irvine. This was followed with a change of  pace when Karen Boothroyd tapped out the  melody of "I've Got Rhythm". "Tarantella"  a dance from Italy was given by Nancy  Montgomery.and then a chorus line consisting of Eileen Connor, Loretfa Harrison,  Susan Francis Christine & Christine  Boothroyd brought the all too short program  to a close with a Cha-Cha-Cha. President  Emery gave the group our hearthy thanks  and expressed the wish that they would come  again and entertain us.  After a slight recess Graham Craig was  good enough to visit us and pick up his talk on  wills and the complications where he left off  last month. After a brief review of his  previous talk, he gave a lot of useful information about the Succession Duties Act  and many legal requirements. What happens  when a person dies Intestate? How to appoint  an executor. How is your safety deposit box  opened and what steps are taken to protect its  contents? How much is the executor granted  fromthe gross estate. He can receive two per  cent but often does not take anything. In the  case of property being held in joint tenancy it  automatically passes to the survivor without  any succession duty. Mr. Craig is prepared to  assist if you have any questions.  After this instructive talk the group adjourned for refreshments and a time of  visiting with f riemds.  This meeting marked the end of our  "Fourth Thursday Socials" until after the  summer recess. In the meantime a bus load  will have left for Reno and the bright spots  before this is in print.  A busy time will be on us the week-end of  May 8 when we will be holding our Annual  Spring Flower, Plant and Shrub sale combined with our spring tea & bazaar. Be sure to  come and pick up some goodies.  Mark May 20 on your calendar and make a  mental note to do your part by attending the  monthly meeting that day.  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  Wntercolors nnd oil paints by Ilcllen  McDonnachie of Davis Bay will bo featured In  a display nt Whitaker House starting May 3.

All residents of Electoral  Area "B" are urged to be present.  On Saturday, May 1, the doors of the  welcome beach hall will be open at 2 p.m.  sharp for the annual plant sale.  Those donating plants are requested to  deliver them to the hall before the time of sale  and it would be of great help to the convenors  if they were packaged individually ready for  sale, marked with the name of the plant. They  can be left on the hall porch from 10 a.m.  onwards. Also on May 1 at 8 p.m. will be the  regular progressive whist drive, when  everybody is Welcome.  Despite a dreary day and a cold wind, the  Easter Egg hunt organized by the Halfmoon  Bay recreation commission on Easter  Saturday was most successful with a good  number of children taking part. With so many  beautifully decorated eggs entered in the  contest, the judges had no easy task in  awarding the prized. Winners were Tracey  --by Mary Tinktey  Laakso for the best design, Michelle Grognet  for the most original, Margaret Connor for  the funniest and Mark Zuidema for the  prettiest.  With a 25th wedding anniversary coming  up, John Williams of New Westminster  decided it was a~ft occasion on which he should  certainly take his wife, Joan out for a  celebration, so he bought two tickets for a  hockey game.  However, his daughters, Janice and  Beverley were making plans of their own and  sent out secret invitations to their relatives  and family friends to take part in a surprise  party on the happy day. John's parents, Joyce,  and Jerry Williams arrived at his home for  the surprise party only to find that John and  Joan had already been surprised quite early  in the afternoon when a telegram arrived  from their bridesmaid of 25 years before  saying how sorry she was that she could not  be a the party. Well, it was a lucky break for  John, for he was able to pass his hockey  tickets on to somebody who could use them.  The no-surprise party was most successful  with between 20 and 30 people taking part.  * Put your message into 4,000  homes (15,000 readers) in  these economical spots.

Our school district has seven of these  facilities operating within and as a part of our  main schools in Langdale, Gibsons (2),  Roberts Creek, Sechelt (2) and Madeira  Park.  The Learning Assistance Centre is  operated by a certified teacher who has been  trained in the education of children with  learning disorders. Thanks to the strenuous,  sustained efforts of concerned parents and  educators, this is now a recognized specialty  for which university programs exist (as they  do for the education of children who are deaf,  retarded, etc.). The LA teacher has the  equivalent of what UBC describes as:  "Diploma in Education-of Children with  Learning Disorders. A one-year program  including coursework relating to the teaching  of children with various handicaps, impairments and learning disorders. Extensive  practice with such children." This conjures  up the image of a benevolent, many-armed  Hindu deity juggling a mixed bag Of tricks.  Which is what actually happens!  Lillian Brooks is already doing some oral  reading with a student when I arrive at 9 a.m.  Ten minutes later, fourteen others converge  on the LA centre from their regular grades  three to seven classrooms.  In prior conversations with these kids,  their parents and teachers and with the help  of her own evaluation aids and reports of  other professionals (when appropriate and  available), Mrs. Brooks has tried to compile  an overall picture of who these children are  as unique and entire human beings. From this  information she has determined, among other  things, that these kids are better off doing  Language Arts with us, using a certain choice  of materials within one of several approaches  at a given level of difficulty.  Two of the children will have one-to-one  contact with a couple of parent aides who  attend the morning session. That leaves only  two ��� sometimes three ��� adults to float  about the modified classroom helping the  other twelve on a demand basis until recess.  During the average day Mrs. Brooks will  see about thirty children and regret that she  simply doesn't have the necessary human or  material resources to be with, guide and  evaluate an estimated fifteen to twenty others  who should also be in a Learning Assistance  environment. They must remain in their  regular rooms to deal with the frustration of  falling further behind because, through no  fault of their own, they are unable to learn in  the same way and at the same rate as their  classmates.  Those anxious to fix the blame should  know that our school district compares  favourably with others in the province  (although no doubt our province still lags  behind in the detection and treatment of  learning disorders). Our school board has  allocated the available resources as effectively and evenly as possible. Which  means that everyone is pinched, especially  our special services coordinator Ed  Nicholson, and Drew McKee, our only special  counsellor! What they have to contend with in  covering the entire district is comparable to  laying out a tightly coiled roll of linoleum. For  every corner they tack down, another one  sproings loose behind them.  Those anxious to fix the cure ��� and there  are many urgent subjects of concern, as  anyone who lives or works with a learning-  disabled child can tell you ��� should ask for,  and be prepared to help finance, extra aid.  But don't stop there and wait for deliverance;  we can't afford to. Other factors equal, the  longer a child must wait for effective help, the  worse his condition becomes. Besides, a  school isn't the only shaper of a kid's life. The  students we work with in Madeira Park are in  our care for only thirty hours of a one hundred  and sixty eight hour week.  Working as parents and other concerned  non-professionals, we can take a hint from  our Special Services staff ahd expand it  further. In setting up a Learning Assistance  centre, our schools attempt to establish a  ��� comprehensively supporting environment to  encourage a child's advances in learning.  Thanks largely to a group of courageous  and resourceful parents, there exists a  Peninsula Association for Children with  Learning Disabilities (PACLD). We should  persevere in using tliat association to help  provide moro of what parents try to give  "normal" children: a total Living Assistance  environment. It's only being realistic on our  part. learning disabilities, of however  s^wiflc a nature, don't come in neat airtight  �� jnpartments. The strengths, weaknesses,  events and other factors In a child's life are  constantly Interacting and changing who he  Is. Let's not fall to use the best experts we  have on who Uie child Is ��� his parents ��� und  all that extra non-school time. We certainly  have nothing to lose. The extra attention a kid  receives, providing It Isn't offensive to him,  has a positive effect on his performance..  That's a well known fact, nnd It even has n  name: Uie Hawthorne effect.  The executive of the PACLD has cnllcd a  meeting ln Sechelt on Wednesday, May 6 nt  Sechelt Elementary. I'd like to sec part of  tliat meeting develop Into a workshop to  discuss the content, staffing, financing and  overall operation of local surnmer-  contlnuntlon programs for our kids ���  something they can relate to and In which  they will hold their hard-earned ground, nnd  even advance, during the months of July and  August. Are you interested?  If we're all willing to push a little, I'm sure  that the school Iwnrd will find some way to  help guide our efforts. In a recent information  sheet for teacher applicants, the school board  outlines four desirable qualities thnt wo could  well adopt as our own. "We want teachers  who: 1) can devciop programs which meet  tho individual needs of pupils; 2) have the  desire and ability to work with young people  and can develop good personal relationships;  3) ore concerned with professional growth  J  Canada  Beef  Zealand Shoulder Ib.  ^iss  .^x -  and in-service (training); 4) are enthusiastic  and willing to work with students in extracurricular areas."  I heard1 an intriguing homily the other  day: "There are three kinds of people in the  world: those who don't have a clue what's  happening, those,who know what's happening, and those who make it happen." Who  do. you want to be?  LEARNING   ASSISTANCE   TUTORS  David Maedel, left, and Steven Ono of  Sechelt Elementary practice the  techniques they use when working with  students with learning disabilities at the  learning assistance centre at the school.  The grade 7 students are two of about a  dozen who work with .primary students  on a one-to-one basis.    ��� Timesphoto  IDE DETERGENT so oz.  lOM'S MARGARINE  m  Pender Harbour Auxiliary to St. Mary's  Hospital met on April 14 with 19 members  attending. Jean Paterson, President, was  chairman. Al Whittle called the roll and the  minutes of the previous meeting were read by  Irene Temple. Jean Whittaker gave the  treasurer's report.  Letters were received from Mrs. J.  Porter, listing coming activities of the  Community Club, and from Don Riome,  telling the events scheduled by the Lions  Club, in order to avoid having two events on  the same date.  Mrs. Jean Paterson read the report of the  coordinating council. Mrs. Kearney, acting  administrator, thanked the women in all the  auxiliaries for the work they are doing for the  hospital. Mrs. C. Nixon, chairman of the thrift  shop, asked if more members would support  their local Thrift Shop Chairman, as this job  involves a lot of time. Mrs. Muriel Eggins  would like someone from each auxiliary to  get together with her to discuss putting a float  in the Timber Days Parade to represent the  six Sunshine Coast auxiliaries.  Jean Prest told how they had fixed up the  pet rocks for the St. Patricks Day favors. The  tray favors for Easter are ready. She would  like small orange juice tins or tomato paste  tins for the Father's Day tray favors.  Irene Hodgson gave the thrift shop report.  The volunteers last month were Lila Wiggins,  Lou Farrell, Irene Hodgson, Hazel Dietz and  Elspeth Logan. The thrift shop continues to be  busy.     '  Doreen Webb told how the crafts are  coming along. She has some baby sets to go to  the shop in the hospital. She showed the articles which are to be raffled at the Friendship Tea, May 12. There is a lovely afghan  and two cushions which were donated by Mrs.  Harding of Saltery Bay and a beautiful  macrame plant holder donated by Harriet  McNaughton. Tickets are 50c each or 3 for $1.  Lila Wiggins has been busy making 'Trudeau  Caps' and Teddy Bears.  Pat Fraser sent get-well cards to three  members., .   ��� '  It was decided that any members wishing  to go, will attend the Area Meeting in Sechelt  on April 28 Instead of sending representatives  to the Regional Meeting in Vancouver on May  12,13 and 14.  Mrs. McQuitty reported the preparations  being made for the fish derby to be held July  31 and August 1.  The meeting adjourned at 2:45 and tea  was served by Irene McKenzie and Pat  Fraser.
