ANALYSIS    :;������:.���  The following article contains opinion  and interpretation by the writer.  By DENNIS FITZGERALD  It's a good question in this year's  Regional District elections whether a lot of  the challengers are running for the  regional board or against it.      ^  If one had to pick a single representative issue out bf the five races now in  progress, that issue would probably be the  -question of autonomy for the district's  member areas and municipalities.  come forward to say that if elected they  will do their utmost to serve the interests  of the people who elect them. Almost  forgotten is the original concept behind the  Regional DistHct: to serve the broader  interests of the entire Sunshine Coast.  And if that is not a frequently voiced  position, that must be because the people  seem not to want to hear it.  running  or against it?  The common complaint is that directors from one area are' 'interfering" in the  internal affairs of another area in board  decision making. The argument being put  forth from all sides is that the Regional  District is ��� or ought tp, be ��� a con*  federation of autonomous areas and that  decisions regarding a particular area  should be the exclusive prerogative of the  residents of that area and their regional  director. P. . '-.\- ,:/  The most heated race is occurring in  Area. A, Where Duncan Sim, with the  Awbciation, and Ratepayers Associatwaw  President Joe Harrison are challenging;  incumbent J��ck Paterson.  Harrison has run an aggressive-  campaign through the Ratepayers  newspaper column. His arguments  against Paterson have centered on his  handling of the Canoe Pass condominium  proposal and on his ability generally to  represent the wishes of north peninsula  residents. Another favourite Ratepayers'  target has been the composition and  workings of the Paterson-appointed official settlement plan committee, of which  Harrison is a member.  Sim was waged a substantially lower-  key challenge, and in directing most of his  arguments against Harrison, would seem  to be less art opponent to Paterson than a  conservative alternative to the  Ratepayers candidate.  Paterson says the alphabetical listing  on the b>!lot places him just where i>e  belongs, �� middle-of-the-road candidate  under chatleqge by "the extreme left and  ^e^ttreme right."  That might be fine for a lot of places,  ��� but in the heavily, political harbour area, a  .Social Credit-NDP tussle doesn't leave  many votes left over.  In Sechelt, the  speculation  is that  ��� See Page C-l Page A-2  The Peninsula Times       Wednesday, November 16,1977  The PeninsulaT*"*^ tfs_________E_____l   _!_..._-___-���      _-_~  ������     ^.^"^WPliP^,  Dennis Fitzgerald, Editor  "A five press if the unsleeping guardian of  every  other right   that free  men  prize."  ,      ��� Winston Churchill  The proper route  Regional Board Chairman Harry  Almond delivered a serious and  needful little lecture last week.  As his comments were obviously  aimed not just at the handful of in-  dividuals present in the board room,  but towards the public at large, we  will cooperate and relay the message.  / Almond noted that the board had  recently been handling several  controversial development proposals.  They are, in fact, so controversial  that the re-election bids of two  directors may be -determined by  them���although Almond didn't  mention that.  . He did attempt to define the  board's philosophy���insofar as it has  one���as regards the settlement of  such proposals.  He said any change in zoning is a  privilege extended to the applicant,  and that the persons who, extend that  privilege should be those who live in  the vicinity of the proposal. He said no  nearby property owner should suffer  as the result of a rezoning.  by the board in attempting to learn;  the public's opinion- about these  proposals is to give them first and  second reading. At this stage a zoning  by-law or land use contract is drawn,  up, and the public is offered a precise  definition of the proposal at a public  hearing.  So far, so good.  Now the tricky part. Why can't an  area director make the decisions  affecting his area by himself?  Almond asked rhetoricaaly.  "Because it's asking too much of  one person. Because I (or any other  director) might be influenced by a  pressure group or might make a  decision for political reasons."  Almond pointed out that the board  has never overruled a director who  has opposed a zoning change.

READER'S RIGHT  Sim responds to Ratepayers  Reflections  Editor, The Times:  This is in reply to the "Pender  Ratepayers" column in another local  paper's November 8 issue. The writer is  not identified. This column refers to  myself as a candidate for Regional  Director in Area "A". It classes me as pro-  development (whatever that means),1 as  favouring municipal government for the  area and in favour of oil tankers on the  CC*St.    ������ .. ���''���    ?;'.      .  To answers these uncalled for inferences, let me say first that my friends  are of mixed opinions and I seem to  disagree with them as often as I agree,  which is half the fun of having friends.  ">x As to local government, all I want is for  this area to have more autonomy, more  real say in what happens here and I hope  to be guided by a strong advisory planning  committee representing all views and  opinions.  I am absolutely opposed to oil tankers  on the B.C. coast because having been  seven years in the fishing industry I know  all too well how disastrous an oil spill can  be. However, I - did point out at the  Ratepayers meeting that the Federal  Government would be hard pressed to  refuse transportation of Alaskan oil over  Canadian territory whem oil for Eastern  Canada is unloaded at Portland, Maine  and sent to Ontario and Quebec via  pipeline. Don Lockstead, our local MLA  who attended the meeting told me this was  a good comment.  I feel it is proper to ask who are those I  who propose to save us from our foolish  selves in the name of the Pender Harbour  and District Ratepayers Association. Are  the opinions and insinuations in the  column an expression of the views of the  members of this Organization that has  dqne good work in the past? Or are they an  ^expression ofthe views of a few members  only? I refuse to beUeve that the bulk of  the members themselves go along with  this. As an organization of less than 100  members, are they entitled to speak for  the 1,475 voters of the district?  Incidentally, the Ratepayers candidate  is sitting on the local Planning Committee  and at a committee meeting when the  needs of the fishermen were being  discussed, he queried the fishermen's  right to any special consideration. Further, now that he is running for office he  has reversed this position, but the  fishermen are too smart to fall for this,  and what does he know about fishing.  Fishermen are essential to the  economy of Area "A" and can count on my  full support for any of their needs.  My concern Is good responsible  representation of all sections of the area,  of all interests and opinions, a constructive  approach to our problems and, hopefully,  co-operation between all parties to the  benefit of all.

Named, blamed and defamed  Editor, The Times:  Ever since recycling's request for a  Jocal subsidy from taxes was refused���  I've been named, blamed and defamed in  a local paper. By whom?

Volleyball and Jock  ByVERNQIESBRECHT  Two-and-a-half years ago, I saw one of  the best female volleyball players in the  world lie on the floor of the University of  Victoria gymnasium while her coach  screamed and pounded a stream of balls at  her.  She had lunged frantically, to reach the  first ball but the coach, not satisfied with  her effort, seemed intent on punishing her.  ���..Thewoman oldn!t flinch under the hail of  fiercely-hit volleyballs. She scrambled  and dove and returned enough of the  smashes to placate the furious coach, then  hustled to the line to catch her breath  before the next ordeal.  Hearing the gym resound with shouts,  watching the intense obedience of the  players at the practice"session,<[ began to  understand why these Japanese women  were the best in the world at their sport,  Their stoic acceptance of gruelling  workouts, combined with pride, dedication  and marvelous skill, had taken them to the  top. Their routine victory over the much  younger Canadian women that evening  Was anticlimatic after that frenzied  workout. '   ���  I thought of the Japanese team last  week as I watched firian Butcher hit balls  at the 10 girls on the Elphinstone team that  will host the provincial senior girls "A*'  tournament this weekend. He hit the balls  hard, but there was no screaming. "Hit a  coach, win a kewpie doll," he joked when  one of the players bounced a ball off his  shoulder.  The purposeful but relaxed atmosphere  at Elphinstone was a sharp contrast to the  feverish mood at the Japanese team's  workout, but in their own way, the local  girls are Just a proud and dedicated as the  Japanese.  Many of the girls have played together  for four or five years, starting with Ian  Jacobs' Beachcombers team. All but two  were on the Elphinstone squad that placed  fourth ln last year's tournament at  Qualicum Beach. Led by Co-captains  Laura Campbell and Colleen Hoops, this  years team has already won several  tournaments, Including a prestigious  tournament at UBC.  "They're not as sharp as they should  be," coach Butcher said before the  workout, but his manner at the practice  session I watched Indicates he's not about  to turn into a screaming tyrant because his  players make mistakes. He's patient,  firm, helpful, sometimes Jovial, and both  he and the girls work at keeping the mood  light.  Make no mistake about lt. Tho  Elphinstone girls are determined to take  the title before their home fans this  weekend but if they don't, they'll have had  fun trying.  WATCHING JOCK  "The Fishers and the Smiths have been  friends for years. I can fill the vacuum-  replace experience with experience."     ,  That was Surrey School Board  Chairman Jock Smith talking to a sparse  audience at the all-candidates' meeting  November 0. There's no doubt in his mind  that he's the right person to take over from  retiring Sechelt School Board Chairman  Celia Fisher,     .  (Mrs, Fisher, who was not at the  meeting, commented later, "If that's the  promised his listeners "satisfaction or  your vote back in two years."  Supported by a folder of notes and  documents, he answered most questions  with an ease that made opponents Don  Douglas and Tim Frizzell appear tongue-  tied. But his responses to some questions  were not reassuring.  "Is it true that you're also running for  school board in Surrey?" he was asked.  "No." he repUed.  Several minutes later, he indicated that  he had one year remaining on his Surrey  term. After the meeting, he told me he  would give up the remaining year of his  Surrey position if elected here. His failure  to outline his situation clearly at the outset  did not a go over well. Not", did'his  assurances that cooperation between  Surrey teachers and the board is "excellent".  When I taught in Surrey.two years ago,  the school board was split on several  contentious issues, including the family  life program and a plan, favored by Smith,  to set up' 'value schools" in the district. Up  to 700 Surrey teachers attended special  meetings to debate these and other issues  and, after hearing that the board was  considering cancelling a learning conditions contract, about 300 of the district's  teachers invaded a school board meeting  to protest the action.  Since the composition of the board has  not changed a great deal since then, and  the teachers' association has many vocal  and forceful members among its ranks, I  doubt that relations are as harmonious as  Smith indicated.  The Surrey board chairman is strong-  willed, confident, proud. He has definite  ideas about what education should be  doing. Voters will have to decide if they  want him to Implement his ideas in Surrey  or on the Sunshine Coast. If they're  basically satisfied with the Sechelt board,  they'll re-elect Douglas and take a chance  on Frizzell. If they want drastic changes,  they'll choose Smith, an outsider with local  ties, an experienced politician who's used  to winning.  Well done ���  up to a point  Editor, The Times:  I would like to compliment you on your  coverage of the November 6 General  Meeting of the Pander Harbour and  District Ratepayers Association, Including  the announcement of our questionnaire  results. Kerra Lockhart ia an intelligent  and Inquisitive reporter who serves your  publication and the community very well  Indeed.  , However, I do question the slant placed1  on the article by the rather heavy-handed  headlines "Pender Harbour Subdivision  Debate: Ratepayers fear higher density,  But Vicinity Plan pointing .other way."

Of course, this recycling of an old  chestnut, to take up the slack on a no-news  week or to exploit a temporary, frustration  is not uncommon among newspapermen!  The gimmick may be reliable but the road  doesn't make sense.  Let's take a rational look.  First, no government with any semblance of fiscal responsibility, the cornerstone of Scoial Credit philosophy,  would invest $30 million of taxpayers  money for a road to back up a ferry route.  Although I wouldn't want to bet that any  government couldn't under any circumstances be manipulated to buy votes, I  think its safe to assume the Sunshine  Coast's 8,000 odd votes are not enough to  pull the road pliB ferry option. It would  have to be read or ferry.  So we're looking at the pros and cons of  a return trip to Vancouver, minimum cost  $10 taking approximately 2% hours in  transit, (allowing for a half hour wait  before boarding) or an extra 132 mile drive  around the head of the Sound. If you  average 15 miles per gallon of gas the cost  may be competitive, but you have also tq .  add about 10 cents per mile depreciation/  Given optimum driving conditions the  time might not be too different either. But  I wonder how many people who do not  drive regularly to Port Mellon realise how  the weather deteriorates north of  Langdale. Port Mellon registers twice the  annual rainfall of the Gibson's area and  it's hardly likely to improve between Port  Mellon and Squamish. Heavy rain after  dark makes for. hazardous driving  reducing speed to a crawl, and rain in  Gibsons may very well be snow on the 600  ft. summit of the Port Mellon road. Fog  which is only an occasional nuisw.ee along  Georgia Strait often accumulates in the  Sound. Snow and washouts are given by  the North Vancouver Highway Department as the most frequent cause of closure  on the Squamish. Highway. Rockslides  occur too, but they tryto avoid these by  regular maintenance.  Of course, a strike causes inconvenience. It's in the nature of the  exercise, but even those who get panicky  at the thought of Vancouver being cut off  from the SunshineCoast must admit ferry  strikes are few and far between���three  only in almost 20 years, while road  closures come annually without any  warning. There has been one such closure  already this winter on the squamish road  and it's not unknown for motorists to be  ^fcgfitbetwefe'rr slides. Tbe;terry ha'S be#i  lritflffl'to break dowtfl'it^ trie, Slid  weather occasionaaly plays havoc with the  schedule, (never at a convenient time for  travellers,) but by and large thg service is  reliable year round.  We've come to take the ferry for  granted, immersed in newspapers,  cocooned in oblivion, we rarely raise an  eye to the majesty of Howe Sound. But for  the tourist and the weekend and summer  home crowd the ferry is an important part  ofthemagic of the SunshineCoast. They're  easy to recognise, clustered by the rail,  feeding the seagulls, walking around the  ship with buoyant step, eyes shining,  creating an atmosphere of expectancy and  excitement, romantics one and all.  Coming to think of it, for all our grumbling about the ferry, about the inconvenience of the schedules its a part of  our lives, we'd be less of a community  without it. Its true the floating bus depot  we have now isn't inductive to the same  festive, Sunday-school-picnic atmosphere  which was an integral part of earlier days  when Union Steamships and later Black-  ball's "Smokey" and Bainbrldge served  the coast, but it's still a pleasure to meet  friends and neighbours and watch another  generation of little ones gambolling  around like spring lambs.  Did anyone stop to think about those  who don't have cars? Bus fares are  directly related to mileage so the cost of  getting to Vancouver by bus would  automaticaaly Increase at least 100 percent and probably more.

And what about the cost of  trucking In supplies? You can bet it  wouldn't cost less. And all for what? That  some blythe spirits for whom a schedule is  too restrictive can get up and go when they  please?

Thanks to  Joe Harrison  Editor, The Times:  At a meeting of the Sunshine Coast  Regional Board held on Thursday,  November 10, By-law No. 150 dealing with  a proposed land use contract between the  regional board and Millwood Development  Corporation was defeated.  As one of many who felt that their home  life style might be threatened by this type  of development, I wish to express my  thanks to Mr. Joe Harrison; president of  the rate-payers association, and his hard  working committee for the compilation of  the relevant data, and for his capable  presentation before the public hearing on  the project.  It is a co-incidence that this matter  came up just about the time that there was  to be an election for the office of director  for Area "A" of the regional board. Mr.  Harrison is one of three nominees for the  position.  Because of the efficiency demonstrated  by him in the fore-going matter, I feel that  the interests, of the, ratepayers ,pf ,Ar,es  "A" wfuldbe wjeUjiteryed .bjrhayjng jVLp.  Harrison as director, and I intend to use  my vote and whatever influence I have  accordingly.       ;>   , GM(Liddle>  Lagoon Road,  Madeira Park.  In support  of Wallander  and Jorgensen  Editor, The Times:  The upcoming municipal and regional'  elections are proving to be very interesting. This is perhaps the "first year  there has been any amount of campaigning other than the usual two inch by  three inch newspaper advertisements. I as  a member of this community and a citizen  looking for an improved government find  that the choices for municipal council are  small.  Olaf Wallander classifies himself as a  "Renovator" and I feel that this is what we  require on both the municipal council and  the regional district board. Olaf Wallander  is running for the dual seat in the village.  My dictionary defines "Renovator" as one  who "restores to good condition". I feel  that this ls what both the council and board  require ��� restoration to a good condition,  positive governments that have the confidence of the electorate.  The Citizens for Improved Government  have adopted the slogan of "Wallanger  and Jorgensen for councU". You know  what I will be voting for. I would request of  all the electorate to please decide in your  own minds what would be best for both  councils and exercise your right to vote on  November 10.  Robert W.Allen  Sechelt.

Hospital Auxiliaries held at the Plaza  International Hotel in North Vancouyer on  October .19. She considered it the best,  convention she had ever attended. It had  started off with a "rap" session, with the  various auxiliaries airing their problems  and it was interesting to find that most of  them were experiencing the same type of  problem. Dr. L.S.A. Boothroyd, who had  been a guest speaker at the Area meeting,  gave a most interesting talk on black and  white Africa and,, in particular, the work .  of Dr. t). Sutherland and his staff at St.  Martin's Mission Hospital in Malindi. Mrs.  Verna Timoin who was elected area  representative for the lower mainland, is  president bf the Delta Auxiliary.

The  Poppy Fund Chairman wishes again to  remind you that all receipts are kept in a  trust fund which is the propery of the  Branch but is kept separate from aU other  transactions and is used only to assist  Veterans, their widows and children living  in the home. One important sideline Is the  donation of bursaries to Veterans' offspring. Then there is the purchase of  poppies for Remembrance Day, wreathes,  etc., too. It's a local Legion Fund and no  one elses.  PENDER HARBOUR COMMUNITY  CLUB NEWS  There was a General Meeting of the PH  Community Club on Sunday, October 30,  and only seven members attended.

There was another winner but I never got  the name. Hot dogs were sold at 25 cents  each and there was coffee and do-nuts.  Stronger refreshments were kept to the  other room.

CRIBBAGE  On Sunday, November 20, there will be  a cribbage afternoon at the hall from 2-4  p.m. Admission is 50 cents and Ed Edmunds, the convenor, suggests that if  sufficient people are interested,  arrangements can be made for regular  cribbage sessions.  FILMS  Those who missed the showing of "I  heard the Owl call my name"~ on,  television, will certainly welcome the  opportunity to see the film by video-tape  on Thursday, November 24, at the Halfmoon Bay School at 7:30 p.m. The book by  Margaret Graven was based partly on the  memoirs of the late Canon Alan Greene  and is a sympathetic study of the Indians  of Kingcome Village. Although the film  was made on the west coast of Vancouver  Island, it has preserved the spirit of the  original story and has a beauty and dignity  which makes it an unusually inspiring  film. The fact that the sweet-voiced  Catherine Kelly will accompany the film  with the singing of the theme song, will  certainly add to its effectiveness. Be sure  to mark this date on your calendar.

However, after two outright defeats,  they staged a comeback on November 7  and gave the men a thorough trouncing,  gaining 43 points to the mens 20 points and  winning all three games. Ne^. week's  game will certainly be worth watching.  , The Welcome Beach Hall will be closed  from January 1-15 for renovations. Ronnie  Dunn's Scottish Dancing classes on Friday  evenings at 7:30 p.m. are now being held at  the Halfmoon Bay School.  BABY SHOWER  On November 6, Els Mercer gave' a  surprise baby shower for her sister-in-law,  Wendy Goodwin at.her home at Secret  Cove. Wendy received many lovely gifts  for her baby daughter, Kristy May Jean,  who was born in St. Mary's Hospital on  October 29. When refreshment time came  around, a handsome cake, appropriately  decorated with a baby carriage, was cut  and served. The proud father, Paul  Goodwin, looked in with Kristy, who was  admired and petted by all the guests.  Attending the shower were j[ean Mercer,.  Irene Mercer, Barbara Laakso, Jerrie Lou  Wickwire; L6ri Gray, Ena Armstrong,  Hope Thickson, Peggy Connor, Therese  Lucas, Mrs. W.B. Wilshire of Davis Bay  and,Mrs. P.F. Kane of Sechelt.  WICKWIRES HOME  The Bob Wickwire family is settled  back in the Bay after two months in northern B.C. operating their fishing camp on  the Babine River, They report that they  had a very successful season with some  very interesting guests, most of whom  were Americans. The temperatures  ranged from seven degrees below to five  degrees above (Celsius) and there was no  snow until just before they left. Rather  reluctantly, Bob shot a bear which was  hanging around the camp and proving a  problem as far as the children were  concerned. The bear skin will be made into,  a rug for the Wickwire home. After  studying by , correspondence for two  months, Jud is happy to be back among his  friends in Grade 8 at Chatelech' and  Cynthia is being warmly welcomed back  at the Halfmoon Bay School.  There was panic one day last week on  Hydaway when a young eagle got into a  /Chicken run and caused consternation  among the hens. The bird, which had a  wing span of about four feet, was captured  by Trevor Woo>ds who then released it.  Though this isn't exactly the kind of  weather that attracts visitors a few faithful ones are still arriving for visits with  their families and friends and sometimes  even to give a helping hand. In this  catergory, two perfect guests, Tip and  Jessie Corson of Vancouver, spent three  days at the Tinkley home licking into  shape the laurel hedge which had got  completely out of control. Another faithful  guest was Kay Coleridge of Vancouver  who came for a visit with her aunt, Eva  Lyons. .  '--jExercise5 i$;.^necessary for several,  reasons. It keeps you burn those-calqries,  reduce tensions, and keeps you busy so  that your hand doesn't reach for the  refrigerator or cupboard door,  By PEGGY CONNOR  The theme for the Sechelt Auxiliary to  St. / Mary's Hospital annual  "Smorgasbord" was Pioneer Days. Thei  ladies chose this theme due to the fact they  were having it in the old Roberts Creek  Hall and felt it would be easier to decorate  this way. What did the community  workers go and do but refurbish their hall.  There it was freshly painted on the inside  and by the time the decorators finished  with the tables the hall.was beautiful.  It was a grand group attending. They  were there for good food, good music and  fun. The warm feeling of friendship  prevailed throughout the evening as  everyone started off with a gourmet  smorgasbord.  What titillated their taste buds? WeU,  there werei fresh salads, marinated  chicken, sweet and sour ribs, curried  shrimp, flanked steak, cabbage rolls, then  there was turkey, chicken wings,  scalloped potatoes, a lima bean dish,  macaroni and cheese and still more���only  my plate wouldn't hold even half of what is  mentioned. Of course to top off the meal,  little cakes and tarts. To serve with the  meal, good wine was available.  "Spice" provided a variety of music to  suit each dancer's pleasure. Diane Dun- .  sford's singing was a delight to just sit and,  listen to, Al Ma'rcellus was the guitarist  who throws all of himself into his music,  and Ian Hunter was the fellow who really  looked like he was enjoying his drums, as  he kept a good beat going all night.  This band only rested three times and  then just long enough for everyone.to' catch  their breath. Soon as the music started the  dancers were on the floor in numbers.  The convenors, Ina Grafe (not  Margaret Humm as erroneously printed  under Ina's picture due to misinformation  given out by some lady's husband who shall  remain nameless) and assistant co-  convenor Lynn Wilson can be proud of the  job they undertook to do. They did it expertly,       i  The fall flowers and oil lamps plus  other decorating. was done by Bobby  Bodnarek, the crosscut hanging on the  walls were her inspiration.  Head chefs in the kitchen were  Margaret Humm and Dorothy Carter.  Mamie Shaw took the tickets at the door,  bar tickets dispensed by Doris Pringle.  Bar manager was Muriel Eggins, her  able attendants were the Jack Nelsons and  the Harris Coles with Dorothy Goeson .and  Marie Hoffar on glass pickup detail.  Janis Wallis hostess at the door with  Peggy O'Connor who was also Master of  Ceremonies.  Neil Campbell's contribution from his  variety store was a pen and 1978 diary  calend&r. That was nice of you, Neil.  This was a grand opportunity to express the Auxiliary's happiness that our  St. Mary's Hospital had earned a three  year accreditation, with a good number of  the staff present, it made it more personal.  Door prizes were donated by our  favorite liquor companies. First prize of a  combination of wines was won by Mrs.  Pattie Richardson of Gibsons, second a  quart of excellent rye went to Don  Kearney, another one went to Teodor  Bernacki, a dinner Uquid won by Agatha  Rodgers, made up the fourth prize.  Then there were the other members of  the auxiliaries who baked, broiled,  marinated and cooked the delectable food,  Sechelt Auxiliary report  The ladies of the Sechelt WA to St.  Mary's Hospital met on November 10 at 2  p.m. in St. Hilda's Hall.

He said the procedure  tends, to falsely imply board approval.  "We're sort of leading the developer,  along."       ��� .     . '  Thompson replied, however, "I don't  feel there's any way you can protect a  developer. He's out to make a profit. You  win some, you lose some, and that's just  the way it is."  Prior to the boad's vote on the question,  Ratepayers' President Harrison read a  statement endorsing the board's apparent  intent to reject tlie plan (based on the then  just-completed planning committee  recommendation). He criticized Paterson's handling of the proposal, however,  saying that it should have been stopped  immediately after the director's area  planning committee recommended  against it on March 16.  The board voted unanimously against  granting a land use contract to developer  Olaf Klassen for an 18 unit strata title  development on Lowfer Road.  . Although there were some unresolved.  technical questions about the plan (for  example, provisions for water supply and  adequate drainage), the rejection, as in  the case-of the Canoe Pass proposal, was  primarily a political decision. About 40  persons attending the October 26 public  hearing on the development were overwhelmingly in opposition to the concept of  cluster housing. r  Prior to the board vote, Marabelle  Bulmer bf Hanbury Road presented a 250  name petition opposing the development.  Among the names of the petition presented  to Almond was that of Almond himself.  "In Roberts Creek we have Vz acre  zoning and that's what the people want,"  Almond said.

The truth is, however,  that Caroline, a grade 8 student at  Chatelech Junior Secondary, doesn't  come to school in tatters ever day.  She was just dressing down for Sadie  Hawkins Day last Thursday.  ���Timesphoto  Sechelt School Board gave approval in  principal .Thursday to a proposal by the  district's primary teachers that orte  supporter called "a major step toward  reducing failure In schools.".  The proposal by the learning conditions  committee of the Sechelt Teachers*  Association is for more funds to buy  blocks, letters, toys and other materials  that Grade 1 children can touch and handle  for enjoyment and learning.  The committee, with the unanimous,  support of Grade 1 teachers in the district,  wan&the board to budget $200 for each  Grade 1 teacher for the purpose of purchasing "manipulative materials",.  Many children who enter Grade 1 are  not ready for pencil and paper, activities  involving abstract symbols, but need to  learn concepts through handling a variety,  of materials, said the brief to the,b^ard,  prepared^ by Judy Gates, Fran Jovick,  Mary Mellis and Jody Filling.  Because of the shortage of  manipulative materials inj tirade 1  classrooms at present, some primary  teachers are buying or making their own  materials or asking children to bring  things from home, the committee said.������������-;  Ed  Nicholson,   Special. education'  director for the district, told the board he'  was "surprised and impressed'" by the  quality of the seven-page brief.  "This (proposal) could be a major step  toward reducing failure in schools," he  said. "My research shows that there is  often too early symbolic writing and  reading. This plan would encourage the  child to deal with concrete materials, get  the feel and touch of letters, for example,  not just the sound."  The brief contends that manipulative  materials can meet needs in the four  categories of learning ��� physical, social,  emotional and cognitive ��� and stimulate  the resourcefulness and imagination of  primary children.  The board commended the committee  for its well-prepared brief.  Superintendent John Denley will meet  a. committee of primary teachers to  discus^ the proposal further.  In addition to the brief, the Learning  Conditions Committee gave the board a 30-  page list of manipulative materials  .compiled by the Primary Teachers  /LAssociaton of B.C. -   .  ��$*  svfc  ��� U VITI I  OR     Bank of Montreal  Board frustrated in search for Bowen school site  The Sechelt School Board's frustrating  attempts to obtain land for expansion of  Bowen Island Community School will be  outlined to Bowen Island residents tonight.  Withdrawal of an offer to sell about five  acres of the 78-acre Collins farm has left  the board with two less desirable options  ��� building the addition on a steep portion  of the present site or purchasing MacMillan Bloedel property at a remote site  near Tunstall Bay.  Preliminary engineering and architectural plans had been drawn up for  the Collins site when Mrs. Fougberg withdrew her offer on the advice of one of her  five sisters.  "Every day the situation gets more  complex," secretary-treasurer Roy Mills  told the board Thursday. "Opportunities  (for suitable land) open up and then closet  It's all very frustrating."  He explained that Mrs. Fougberg's  offer to discuss the sale of her portion of  the Collins property with the school  district was withdrawn on the advice of a  sister who was vehemently opposed to  seeing a school developed on the site. The  sister, Mrs. Jamieson of Vancouver, also  phoned the school district to object to the  proposed sale, on the grounds that the  project would attract more traffic and  spoil the beauty of the area.  Mrs. Fougber a Squamish. resident,  was "regretful, apologetic and firm"  about withdrawing her offer, Mills told the  Times;. '''.'*  If me%ddftitfrtar c1ai#-��^li6fitn^  and activity area were built on tile present  school site, a playing field would have to  be dug up for a septic tank disposal system  and the new construction would take place  on the steeper portion of the L-shaped  property, Mills said.  "It would be much better to start on a  new site."  There is little flat land available on the  island and the MB property at Tunstall  Bay is remote from the population centre,  he added.  In other school construction news, the  Court news  board was told that the addition tc  Madeira Park Elementary is two weeks  ahead of schedule but roofing has beer,  delayed by the heavy rainfall this month  Taxi service  . Gibsons Alderman Ted Hume says he  stated at the November 1 village council  meeting, that the local taxi service '%.��  worfce today than it was 20 years ago.';*"  ' Hume said he did not say that the taxi  service has deteriorated over the last 20  years, as was attributed to him in a Times  article last week, and that he did not intend to criticize operation of the service by  the company's previous owner.

Johnson last week.  Albert Christiansen, 57, of Gibsons, was  fined $1,000 and had his driver's licence  suspended for one year after he pleaded  guilty to driving with a blood-alcohol  reading of over .08.  Christiansen had a breathalyzer  reading of .28 when stopped by RCMP on  August 7 after his car was seen weaving  along Highway 101. He had previously  been convicted of Impaired driving In 1976.  In asking Johnson not to imprison his  client, lawyer Robert Reid said  Christiansen, now unemployed, was  negotiating a business deal that would be  Jeopardized by a Jail term.     '  A person convicted of a second drinking  and driving charge can be imprisoned for  a maximum of one year.  Johnson Imposed the $1,000 fine on  Christiansen after saying he had to take  into account "the recentness of his  previous offense."  The judge also instructed Christiansen  to report regularly to a probation officer,  to undergo alcohol counselling and to  enroll in the impaired drivers course.  Twice, during last week's court sitting,  Johnson lashed out at lawyers who allowed  clients to change pleas from innocent to  guilty without notifying court officials that  a lengthy trial was no longer necessary.  "This matter of setting things down for  trial and then pleading guilty is wasting  everyone's tlmo," the Judge said.  "It's wasting court time; It's wasting  staff Ume. Trial Ume Is allocated well in  advance. There's no excuse for not Informing tlte court of a change of plea."  For high Profit Potomml  Planning to go into business!

Just what is this word?���that we, in the  "Bod Squad" dare not say aloud, are not  allowed to use in advertising, bill printing  or when teaching class. We must be the  souls of diplomacy when it comes to the  word FAT and tightly so, because we are  all far from' perfect and particularly  sensitive about our imperfections. Being  an " member of the F-T brigade, I  should know. I still cringe at the memory,  of the haughty and,very chic salesgirl  informing me- that "MODOM would find  something more suitable in the outsize  department" and all that "MODOM" was  offered there, was a drape tent in sludge  colour.  There used to be other words that came  under the heading unmentionable, in the  not so distant past. Cancer, tuberculosis to  name but two, that have lost the stigma  attached to them because they've been  swept out from under the carpet, though  they still require all the .expertise that  science and medicine can give them.  Not so with FAT! It's within your own  power to do something about it, and I  mean in particular, cellulite (pronounced  CELL-U-LEET) Fat, those bumps and  bulges that are not just normal fat but a  gel like substance made up bf lat, water  and wastes trapped in lumpy immovable  pockets just beneath the skin.;  The cure; correct diet, breathing,  exercise, proper eliminatuH)., massage and .  relaxation, and that's where we the "Bod  Squad" can help you. I have classes  Tuesday and Friday at 12 noon at St.  Hilda's Church Hall, Sechelt, Wednesday  at Continuing Education Building Gibsons  at 12 noon, And Welcome Beach Hall,  Halfmoon Bay Thursday at 1 p.m. I do  special problem spot, massage and  exercise for cellulite fat. Call our office at  885-3611 if you have any queries.  Let's shape up and step out with a new  confidence that no chic sales girl can  shake. Get rid of,the substance and  automatically it won't be necessary to.  mention the unmentionable.���Ronnie  .

Pettersen  886-9793  Book Look  By MURRIE REDMAN  '���  CHINES COOKING LESSONS by Constance Chang, Doubleday cl977,122 pages,  $7.95.  CHINESE COOKING LESSONS is but  one of Mrs. Chang's books on oriental  cuisine. She has" published also THE  CHINESE MENU COOKBOOK and THE  Chinese party cookbook/  The author controls seven Chinese  restaurants in Japan and also conducts a  cooking school and appears on TV  broadcasts. Constance Chang originated  the first Chinese food buffets in Japan. Her  artistry extends out of the kitchen to  painting and calligraphy as well.  Madam Chang advises her Japanese  brides to learn the art of Chinese cooking  so that their husbands, who traditionally  wine and dine out alone till all Hours, will  come home early. And if their tables are  as attractive as the ones illustrated in the  book, they surely will. Just looking at tlie  book forced me to rush out to aChinese  restaurant and to make a resolution to  take up Chinese cooking. Not only do the  foods in the colour photographs look  delectable but the table settings and  arrangements are also a treat for the eyes.  The book is arranged into food types ���  meats,  seafoods,  vegetables etc.  The  author believes that most cooks try to  ifw!^ W^Ts^om what is oriliand rather  tfeaif^ forspecMc'dishe^     :"?'��,��:'  ' Thi.* book be.gins with the i&reas in China  which developed certain styles of cooking.  It goes on to techniques of cooking,  utensils and then serving- Although I have  not yet tried any of the recipes, they look  easy to follow. The directions are concise  and clear. Best of all, every one of the  dishes is illustrated in photograph ��� and  they all look delicious!  Very many of the recipes are dishes  that one seldom if ever sees on a  restaurant menu, therefore, I suspect that  these are quite authentic as well as novel.  My favorite pages were the ones which  showed Chiao-tzu molded into shapes of  animals and flowers. This treat is made of  a high gluten flour much like the kind used  for pasta. It is rolled thinly and fashioned  Into shapes which are then stuffed and  garnished. Little goldfish, butterflies and  frogs are perched on lovely Chinese  platters waiting to be savoured. These are  good fried or boiled, A variation of this  dish is one which is made similarly but  rolled thinner and made into little snacks  with the tops open, showing that they are  stuffed with seasoned rice, crabmeat or  pork.  If you aren't already convinced that  this book is a cook's delight, you might try  looking for It.  consecutive weekends; beginning  November 25. Class size is limited to 15  students.

The plan to shelve the Gibsons Marina  Development is a grave mistake and we  ask you to reverse this decision. ,  We can vouch for the following information being avid boaters for years.  1. Reports show that more boat sales  than ever have taken place within the last  two years, with the majoring going into  larger vessels.  ,  ' 2. Marina space is so limited in Vancouver and districts that it takes your  name over Vh. years on a waiting list to get  into certain marinas. It has been said  people would gladly store their boats in  Gibsons if space was available.  3. Take a look at our present Government Dock now, it is so full that boats are  packed four abreast, which is a poor  looking affair for anyone coming into  Gibsons from out of town, to try and dock  overnight or purchase supplies.  4. If you noticed the price, of gasoline,  which is the same as for cars, 88 cents, you  will know why most Vancouverites and  boaters are now coming into Howe Sound  instead of far away places, I cite for  example Plumper Cove, over a hundred  boats per weekend all summer, Centre  Bay on Gambier, full of boaters, to say  nothing of the long string ��f boats tied to  the log booms all the way up to Port  Mellon. Next year there will be more.  5. Our own Smitty's Marina is full to  capacity and states he has a waiting list,  and can not accommodate boats over 28  feet.  Why wait for the economy to return,  now is the time to act and create jobs, and  since these are for Canadians, who cares if  the American dollar is worth $1.10? We  will be inviting them in to spend those  dollars when the marina is complete.  It is a well known fact that Gibsons''  only facility and future tourist attraction is  its waterfront, so now is the time to  develop, especially with Ottawa only  requiring detailed analysis of the traffic  pattern which can be predicted, and we  could be on Ottawa's 1978 budget. We say  now is the time. Don't stop the Gibsons  Marina.  K.A. Crosby  B. Kennett  Gibsons.  ft^^-ijjjw Hilv    iU/'.U^'    '*i *.(*'*-.

In an article last week in a local  newspaper, Pender Harbour and District  Ratepayers Association Publicity Committee referred to Area A regional election  candidate Mr. Duncan Sim, his neighbour  and their relationship.  These references are opinions.  Opinions that I, as a member of  association, do not share with the co:  mittee because I don't haye any opinioi  on Mrs. Sim's neighbourly relationships.  And what's more, I don't think I will form  any.  However, It is comforting to know the  man is neighbourly. Can one have an  opinion on neighbourliness? It's akin to  motherhood, but maybe that's a matter of  opinion too.  I have not yet formed any opinions on  neighbourly Duncan's other qualifications  for this position as Area A director, but I  intend to, when I meet and talk with him  before the election. If as our publicity  committee asserts, that Mr. Sim has close  neighbours and at least (Hie friend, he  can't be all that biad. Maybe he even likes  dogs~ and little children.  There is one thing about which I have  formed an opinion ��� our publicity committee.  The pen is mightier than the sword,  especiaUy if the ink is poisoned (another  opinion, my own).  Lyle Forbes,  MadeiraPark  Sensationalism  and unnecessary  Editor, The Times:  I find your"Court News" column incriminating. Apart from the fact that I  believe drunken driving is one cause of  needless death, it is unnecessary for the  reporter to state, quote, "the 30-year-old  hairdresser" and "the bank employee was  charged" etc.  What difference does it make as to our  daily living insofar ks a drunken driver  charge is made?   "  I call this sensationalism and unnecessary to make a small time paper a  large time gossip sheet.  Mrs. M. Matheson  Roberts Creek.  Strictly for curiosity's sake, how would  you like to take out one minute while  you're shopping and find out what your  blood pressure is? Or how about spending  six minutes climbing up and down two  steps in time to music and then taking your  pulse to see how your heart handles this  minimal increase in physical exertion?  These two very simple tests can give  you a fairly accurate idea as to the general  health of your heart, and the Community  Resource Society's Fitness Service will be  making them available to you every week  from now on so that you can find out for  yourself.  Blood pressure simply defined is the  force of the blood against the walls of the  larger arteries. It ls greatest at the  moment blood Is pumped by the heart.  Blood pressure goes up when you are  excited or afraid, or when you are exercising, as the heart is pumping faster and  the blood is therefore moving faster and  exerting more pressure on the walls of the  arteries. Blood pressure goes down when  your are relaxed or sleeping.  These up and down changes are considered normal. But if blood pressure is  high all the time, a condition doctors call  hypertension, It may be serious because  the constant pressure takes the "stret-  chlness" out of the arterial walls, and the  heart must work harder to pump enough  blood.  The Canada Fitness Step Test Is a  simple, safe, self-administered test  designed to assess the strength and endurance of tlie heart, lungs and circulatory  system. Its purpose is not to diagnose, but  to serve as a general Indicator of cardiovascular  endurance,   which   Is   the  J.

The step-up, step-down exercise is  ���'. performed to a pleasant musical tempo  adjusted according to age, and upon  I completion of 2 three-minute phases of  stepping, the pulse is taken to determine  the body's response to continuous  movement. From a physical fitness  evaluation chart, you can compare your  heart rate with that recommended for  someone of your age and thereby determine your own personal fitness level.  Take a "Step Up to Fitness" and come  to the Fitness Service Office upstairs in  Whitaker House anytime between 2 p.m.  and 4 p.m. on Thursdays. Joy Smith and  Evans Hermon, R.N,, will be available to  help you test yourself and evaluate the  results. You are sure to find it interesting  and it takes only 15 minutes.

'    ..  Art is boring, entertaining,  enlightening, disconcerting, seditious,.  sedative and sometimes efficacious,  reflecting the unknown, mirror of our  dreams, chronicle of our aspirations.  Art, (form and event) is natural expression with a large open end from which  derives the vitality that accompanies one  through the labyrinth of life.  Everyone has an abundance of  creativity and should never be intimidated  by the formalism of tradition in these days  of expanded definition of 'Art'. Craft,  performance and film are but a few means  of self-expression open to 'Artists' bf all  ages and medium.  When a community lacks education or  focus ior these activities, an inevitable  loss of valuable creative talent tp more  sophisticated centres ensues ��� sad losses  for a growing community with only  television as a cultural alternative, and no  outlet for the concomitant boredom and  frustration.  Everyone benefits from an Arts  Facility.  In a recent study of Vancouver it was  found that cultural facilities generate over  two and a half times their own revenue  intake for local commerce.  1 In Sechelt, construction has started on  a modest Arts Centre at the corner of Trail  and Medusa Avenues opposite Hackett  Park. Sponsored by the Sunshine Coast  Arts Council and funded in part by a  Canada Works Grant, the centre requires  community support of money, materials,  and good wishes.  If you have any of these or more to  offer, call me at Whitaker House (885-3414)  or come to the site and say hello.  9btew8 and ^km"  ALL NEW PAINTINGS AND PRINTS  November 16, 17, 18, 23, 24, 25,  11 am to 5 pm  UPSTAIRS QUEST ELEC.

Garden Comer  By QUY SYMONDS  As every nurseryman is saying to  anyone who will listen, now is the time to  plant fruit trees.  With an abundance of fruit coming into  the stores from the Okanagan, not to  mention Ontario and Washington, there is  really not much in the way of an urgent  reason to grow fruit on this peninsula.  Except of course for the sheer fun and  pleasure of the growing.  In days gone by it was a most important  item of the settlers life. He could not get it  anywhere else and the possession of a  cellar full of bottles of preserved,fruit was  a vital item in the health of the family  during the winter.  Evidence of this is all around us in the  numbers of dying or dead orchards victims of neglect and the diseases that  accompany it.  People used to think a lot of their own  fruit. Legend has it that the French  nobleman whose gardeners had produced  the famous Cornice pear used to watch his  crop so carefully that he would sit up all  night if necessary waiting for the exact  moment to pick the fruit at the very peak  of perfection. Well, this gardener has  grown the Cornice pear and most delicious  it was, but never felt constrained to go to  that length.  One of the first decisions to make when  planning to grow some tree fruit is influenced by the space available. How  many trees will the area accomodate.  What sort of fruit do you like? Does the  layout call for standard trees, the kind that  grow to 20 feet high because you are more  interested in the bloom and growth than in  the fruit, or would the dwarf or semi dwarf  suit you better?  Possibly the next consideration is  where in the garden should they go? Many  people it would seem put them away at the  bottom of the garden when in fact the odd  fruit tree in a border or among your ornamentals is both a delightful sight and a  relief to the eye at harvest time.  Admittedly dwarf trees have their  problems but ln this gardener's opinion the  extra bit of work and worry are well worth  it if you can have a tree that does not  produce for the benefit of the crows alone  because they are the only ones able to get  at it.  So let's look at the dwarfs for a  moment. The rootstocks are especially  developed, require rather special handling  but in the case of apples anyway will  produce a good amount of fruit that appears early and matures early. The need  for delicate handling was tragically  omphasized to this gardener when a dwarf  sweet cherry just approaching bearing  age was a dense mass of glorious bloom,  One morning lt was found prostrate with  the trunk torn away at the graft union.  Expert opinio* was that the graft had  never "married", but the owners opinion  Is that proper staking during the trees  Infancy ml.ght well have saved it.  targe or small, planting procedures  are the Mine except In one very Important  particular. That is the position of the graft  union. With .standards this should be some  inches below tho ground surface while  with the dwarfs lt should be several inches  above. For a solution to the problem of  varieties, take advantage of the  knowledge of your local nurseryman.  ' The physical planting Involves digging  a hole at least two feet deep and large  enough to take the root system without  crowding, At the bottom goes some old turf  or similar organic material, onto which  the tree roots are set and carefully spaced  out. About 18 inches or soil are added and  very firmly pressed down. Water slowly  and carefully trickled in will wash the soil  particle down among the root hairs. Then  on top go a few inches of loose soil or  mulch, personal preference does not lie  with leaves or grass cuttings as they may  encourage pests that can damage the tree.  Again watch the placing of .the graft  union and if the tree is a dwarf one don't  bury it. Some bonemeal at the bottom is a  good if somewhat expensive idea. Now the  winter is right on top of us if you are going  to plant fruit trees, don't wait any longer.  New janitor head  Gregory.Cameron has been appointed  to the new position of foreman of custodial  services in the Sechelt School District,,  effective Dec. 1.  Cameron, who held a similar job in  Williams Lake and is presently employed  by Qualicum School District, will supervise the 28 full and -part-time custodians in  the district, establish a training and  upgrading program and fill in for  custodians who are ill. Eventually he will  work at each of the schools.  Secretary-treasurer Roy Mills told the  school board at its Thursday meeting at  Madeira Park Elementary that Cameron  was highly recommended by both the  Williams Lake and Qualicum districts and  by Building and Grounds Superintendent  BobRutter.  Mills told the Times that one of  Cameron's responsibilities, will be to  establish standards for custodial service  in the district's schools. Standards vary  widely at present, as do the qualifications  of custodians. Appointment of a foreman  who will have time to work with the  custodial staff should improve the service,  Mills said,    r  Cameron's salary will be about $1,490  per month. ,  Elementary report  Elementary students in Sechelt School  District will have to wait two weeks to get  their mid-term report cards.   ''"���  Superintendent John Denley told the  school board Thursday that the new report  cards have been delayed at the printers,  who are busy printing election material.  The reports will be issued Friday, Dec. 2  and bus schedules for the elementary  schools will be advanced one hour Monday  through Thursday the following week so  the "tremendous number" of parent-  teacher interviews being planned can  begin in mid-afternoon. Denley said.  See the skilfully hand-crafted Cheese  Board in our window.

Other persons  complain that the board is failing to act on  matters requiring attention. Will you state  briefly your concept of the Regional  District's proper role.  AREA A  HARRISON ��� The Regional Board has  lost touch with the residents. We must  return to a policy of ref erendums on vital  issues. We need to revitalize the advisory  planning committee so that local views  can be considered. Regional government  can be a reasonable alternative to costly  municipal government. We must restore  the confidence of the taxpayers by  frequent consultation and efficient  management of their affairs.  PATERSON ��� You can't win 'em all!  We're trying! To interpret a few hundred  different views is one thing, but to boil it  down to a few words of bylaw, regulation,  whatever, that will satisfy everyone ��� it's  difficult.  SIM ��� The power and function of  regional boards are covered by the  Municipal Act, which will be changed  shortly. While the board has, of course,  acted in accordance with this act, a great  many people feel that it is not responsive  to their wishes or needs. Area directors, on  any local questions, should get an expression of the attitudes of the electorate  before they vote on the question. Directors  should take care of the bread and butter  issues before they branch out into new  areas, e.g. parks.  SECHELT  NICHOLSON���You can please some of  the people some of the time but you can't  please all the people .all the time.  STOTT ��� We need government and I  would much reather deal with a local  authority than with a provincial one. The  Regional District should provide only  those services that the community wants,  but that's very difficult with so many  different opinions in the area. Some say it  does too much, others too little. It will  never please everyone, but I think regional  government is a good idea, anyway.  District's proper role is that of operating  the services required by the people of the  area and causing these services to be  expanded as the people demand.  HALL ��� did not complete the  questionnaire but chose, instead, to submit  the following statement: '  I have not enclosed the questionnaire  regarding my viewpoints of the Regional  Board Directors Seat I seek, for, as you  are aware the Candidate elected is a  representative of the entire Sechelt  Council and should represent the  viewpoint of the Council he serves, not the  viewpoints of his choice.  The questions raised in your  questionnaire are serious questions and  are undoubtedly derived from planning  experience and should I be elected,. I will  bring them before Council for advisement  of their wishes.  Your question No. 3 QUOTE "Do you  agree with the concept being outlined in  local Community Plans which would  generally restrict high density development to core areas?"  In that this question relates specifically  to the Sechelt Core, it concerms my  viewpoints as an Aldermanic Candidate  and therefore I herein answer that  question:  Returns of my recent survey mailed to  all Voters on the Sechelt Voters List is  strongly showing a division of thinking .  amongst the electorate in regards to  apartments and heavy versus light density  within the boundaries of Sechelt Village.  In view of this, on being elected I shall  ask Council to set up a study of the effect of  heavy versus light density growth and  make the voting public aware of the long  range effects before, adapting a Community Plan that breeds and controls this  course.  AREAC  LEE���The role of the regional directors  is to "listen and act upon the expressed  wishes of the electorate" commensurate  with the realities and needs of individual  people and areas. The principal complaint  in Area C is that despite petitions and  presentations, directors often act against  such representations in a dictatorial  fashion. Prom 200 interviews I gather that  both points have considerable validity.  PEARSON���said that he is running on  his record of the past two years and that he  does not feel that responding to the  questionnaire would add anything to this:  AREAE  CROSBY ��� Regional districts were  founded to control or govern unorganized  districts to stop the use of improvement  districts, etc. Since then they have grown?  taking on practically all functions that a'  municipality has. Most regional districts  are very large and surround towns or  villages and must cooperate with them in  both planning and services or it will cast  the taxpayer more money than normal,  GIBB ��� The Regional Board's proper  role, it would seem, is to represent and  consider the whole of the Sunshine Coast in  its decisions. Outside of Gibsons and  Sechelt, its function is that of local  government. As such, it tries to provide  services such as fire protection, hospital,  garbage collection etc. as they are  required and es the money becomes  available. It should also serve the function  of co-ordinating development in this area  so that services are not duplicated or  made superfluous.  GIBSONS  MARSHALL ��� To instigate Services  not already provided. As of now, Regional  District is merely usurping functions  brought into being by organizations and  other governments years ago (water,  planning, libraries, recreation, ambulance, education). Dividing the Sunshine Coast into two or more district  municipalities would serve communities  far better than one regional district,  ��� centred at Sechelt, is doing now.  METZLER ��� My concept pf the  Regional District's proper role is to  provide essential services to unorganized  areas and work in harmony with any  municipalities within its boundaries.  TIMES ��� As the population of tlie  Sunshine Coast grows, new development  places an increasing strain en the environment. Some persons argue that a  relaxation of environmental standards is  inevitable to sustain economic growth.  Other persons say that standards must be  stren.gthened and more rigidly enforced to  minimize the impact of development.  What is your position?  AREAA  HARRISON ��� We-can avoid a costly  public sewer system by keeping in touch  with.the residents about high density  -developments in their neighbourhoods  Protection of  mercial and residential development  impossible.  PATERSON���Depends. The impact of  development may only need a few trees  cv.tr. Saskatchewan grows wheat, we grow  trees. But, the pollution, or despoliation of  water-courses or their environs must be  avoided as a top priority.  -' SIM ��� Growth is inevitable, and a  middle of the road approach to the  economy and ecology is the only answer ���  we cannot have one at the expense of the  other. Before we either relax or strengthen  our environmental standards, we should  enforce the laws that are presently in  place.  SECHELT  NICHOLSON���I am sure there should"  . be a mutual agreement between the environmentalists and developers.  STOTT ��� Our natural surroundings  and friendly community feeling must be  protected. But we mustn't keep1 out the  homes and businesses we need to live.  There should be a proper balance. With all  the land around, it's surely possible to  preserve our beaches and quiet neighbourhoods without making rules so strict  that no-one can afford to set up shop.  WALLANDER ��� My position is that  the first of your surmises is totally wrong  and furthermore the problem as you  present it does not exist.  AREAC  LEE���Any thinking person knows that  once the environment is despoiled, it is  gone forever. At the same time we have to  work and eat and be housed. Commerce  must be given a place and opportunity to  operate within standards acceptable to  both environment and commerce. This  balance has been achieved elsewhere ���  we on the coast are no less intelligent and  able.  AREAA  CROSBY���The growth of the Sunshine  Coast by population and development is  inevitable and will come whether we like it  or not. It is then necessary to have standards to keep the environment safe as this  growth takes place.  GIBB ���- My position on the environment question is that we should have  a distinct concept of urban and rural and  not confuse the two by thinking that urban  sprawl is the inevitable way to develop.  After all, there are sound economic  reasons for environmental controls. For  example: should logging wipe out a fishing  business." (This cost should be tax  deductible). Environmental control saves  one industry from another as well es  maintaining an area suitable in which to  live.  GIBSONS  MARSHALL ��� No real reason why  environment and development cannot  survive together (fish in streams) ���  Buffers at streams, beaches, esplanades,  green areas should be left in future  development. ���  METZLER ��� I believe growth and  maintenance of the environmental  standards are compatible. Substitute plain  common sense for hysteria.  TIMES ��� Do you agree that defined  land use designations are necessary, Le.  separate and protected for residential,  commercial and industrial uses of various  densities? Do you agree with the concept  being outlined in local community plans  which would generally restrict high  density development to core areas?  AREAA  HARRISON ���I am in favour of limited  separation of land use designations ap  plying only to major nuisances. High  density development may be necessary in  core areas for old age pensioners or  professional employees.  PATERSON ��� Yes, zoning is  necessary. Yes, settlement plans are a  must now and high density isn't really  necessary anywhere, but it should go to a  core, if needed.  SIM ��� Yes, providing the committee  drawing up the plan is truly representative  of all sections of the community, with  unrestricted and total public input.  SECHELT  NICHOLSON ��� Yes.  STOTT ��� I don't like the restrictive  laws, but unfortunately land use  regulations seem to be necessary to give  people peace of mind and security about  their homes and property. I agree with  limiting high density development to core  areas, because thitf will confine any  negative impacts of that development on  our rural community and environment.  WALLANDER - 1. Yes. 2.

We certainly  ANALYSIS  The following article contains opinion  and interpretation by the writer.  By KERRA LOCKHART  While they won't be able to mark a  definite, "yes" or *'no" on their ballot,  many Gibsons voters may be considering  whether to transfer the village water  system to the Sunshine Coast Regional  District when they go to the polls Saturday.  Advocates of the transfer quote from  the 1977 Dayton and Knight engineering  report which warns that Gibsons could  face a severe water shortage within years  unless an alternative source of supply is  found.  According to the engineering study,  Chapman Creek, from which the Regional  District draws its water, is the only  dependable long-term sources on the  southern peninsula.  Opponents of the transfer argue that no  one, including Dayton and Knight, has  ever established how much water there  actually is under the village.  __^ ___ They quote from a report nine years  environmental control are needed and  should be considered a "cost of doing  KEN CROSBY  Kenneth Allen Crosby, 53, is a candidate for a two-year terni as Regional  District director from Area E.

Residents in favour of retaining control  over their water say the transfer could  cost the village its independence.  A spectre frequently raised is that of  the Regional District turning down subdivision and building applications already  , approved by the village council on the  grounds there is inadequate water to  service the new lots.  Supporters of the transfer reply that  this has not been the case in Sechelt where  '. the Regional District has provided an  excellent water system, and no council  should be approving subdivisions if  homeowners can't be assured of running  water.  Nor, they add, is the village "giving  away" the system. They are simply  transferring responsibility for the  maintenance, expansion and financing to  the Regional District.  In rebuttal, opponents of the idea point  out that how, if residents are unhappy with  how their water system is handled they  can show their displeasure by voting those  responsible -- the aldermen ��� out of office. If the system were transferred to the  Regional District this control would be  lost.  What everyone has agreed on is that the  village's water system needs major and  expensive upgrading.  But exactly what improvements are  needed, how the financing ls U, be raised  and what it will cost tht? indlviu��:il taxpayer are the questions at the cehtre of the  water controversy in Gibsons, I  As it exists now, water pressure is so  low In upper Gibsons firefighters would be  helpless If a major blaze broke out in the  area. During the heat wave of the past  summer the local fire chief reported that  gravel, not water, flowed out of hydrants  near Sunnycrest Mall and merchants are  paying for this lack of protection through  higher insurance costs.  The village has already started work on  a $250,000 reservoir which, when completed, will improve the water supply to  upper Gibsons. But the $250,000 still has to  be raised.  If the system is turned over to the  Regional District then 75 per cent of the  cost would be forgiven by the provincial  government under an arrangement  whereby the district pays only 25 cents on  the dollar for all water expenditures over  three mills.  The Regional District has that sort of  monetary clout, the village of Gibsons  does not.  What Gibsons has been able to do is get  the government to agree to lend them  approximately $340,000 under the Water  Facilities Assistance Act. This money  would pay for the reservoir, eight inch  mains to connect it to the pump house and  water lines to Park Road and the mall  Hareav Enoughwoiddbe le^tifveirtopay the  capital costs of the No. 2 well and to add  more chlorination to the system.  At 10 per cent interest Gibsons taxpayers would reimburse the government  at around $16,000 a year for the next 20  years. A grant from Victoria would repay  a further $23,000 annually.  While the transfer's opponents say this  money will pay for all necessary improvements, others claim the $340,000 is  peanuts compared to what will eventually  have to be spent on the water system.  Gibsons will still have to raise the  annual $16,000 through taxes, they predict  saying it would be much cheaper in the  beginning just to transfer the water works  to the Regional District and take advantage of the million dollar improvements , planned for the Chapman  Creek system.  If Gibsons did join the regional network  then area directors would borrow against  the increased revenue to extend water  mains through to North Road, upper  Granthams and the Langdale area.  Those In opposition ask why Gibsons  taxpayers should have to subsidize the  water service for persons living outside  the village boundaries.  The Regional District has assured  Gibsons there will be no sharp increase in  annual water rates if the transfer is approved. But detractors note there is no  assurance fees won't jump in the future.  Currently, the Regional District levies  an annual user charge of $48 per lot up to  one acre in size. There is a monthly fee of  $3.05 for those on a gravity-fed line and  $4.25 for those connected to a pump line.  In Gibsons residents arc charged a  minimum of $12 and a maximum of $24  annually depending on their property size.  There is a flat $5.40 per month user's fee.  MORE ABOUT .  Regional board candidates  --From Page A-l  there's a good chance the village may  again find Itself with an appointed regional  board representative, such as occurred  two years ago when Alder-mail Morgan  Thompson was named to tho board,  If this happens, it won't be for a lack of  eager candidates. Hank Hall, Ed  Nicholson, Adrian Stott and Olaf  Wallander are ull running for the board.  With an few electors as Sechelt has,  almost anything could happen. But this  speculation Is that Incumbent Morgan  Thompson and Frode Jorgensen (who tied  with Frank leitner ln last year's alder-  manic election) have the Inside track (or  ttie two aldermanic position, and neither of  them is running (or the board. Thompson  says the job simply requires more time  than he has to give to It.  In order to be village representative to  the regional board, a candidate must first  ha elected an alderman. Thus, if Thompson and Jorgensen should gain the  iildernmnic npotfl, appointment of a  representative would fall to the regional  board. When this occurred two years ago,  the board simply asked the village to pick  Its director and thon rubber-stamped that  choice. The procedure presumably would  be followed again this year If necessary.  But, again, anything could happen, ond  the, candidates have been conducting  active compalgns, with newspaper flyers  and ads, coffees and some door-to-door  canvassing In addition to the traditional  all-candidates meetings.  Nicholson, Hall and Wallander appear  to have divided among them most of the  business community's available suppbrt.  Hall was nominated by fellow developer  Ted Osborne and machine shop owner  Hugh Baird and himself nominated  Nicholson. Wallander has had some of his  advertising placed by an entity called  Citizens for Improved Government.  Businessman Hayden Killam, who counts  himself as one such citizen, told the Times  that others Include Stan Anderson, Rudy  Crucil, Don Sutherland, Robert Allen and  Ray Stockwell. Killam said CIG ls not an  organized group and Is not "endorsing"  anyone.  If that sounds confusing, it's because it  Is confusing. In attempting to disentangle  the alliances, about the only thing one  could surmise Is that Adrian Stott has been  left off the lnvltatolon list. But then again,  Stott was nominated by Hugh Baird, who  nominated Hank Hall, who nominated Ed  Nicholson.  The campaign has for the most part  raised a few substantive Issues. Stott Is  capable qt an articulate presentation of his  controlled growth philosophy, but the  contest has primarily revolved around  personalities and will likely be decided on  that basis: who has the most friends  willing to show up at the polling place  November 19?  That may also be the way It all falls  down In Area C, Incumbent Barry  Pearson, who claims to know almost every  resident of his area, is being challenged by  Charles Lee, who recently gained public  notice as a spokesman (or Citizens Against  the Rape of the Environment (CARE) In  the airport lease dispute.  1/oe, however, stresses that he Is not  running as a CARE candidate and that  that small group has no connection with  his campaign.  To some degree, Lee and Pearson seem  to be reaching for about the same constituency and the voters asked to decide on  the basis of effectiveness of representation  rather than on the basis of substantial  differences in their philosophy.  Lee talks about the need for some  commercial development In Area C and  Pearson was In that same camp during the  recent Salahub controversy.  Curiously, Lee was one of the persons  named by Killam In his recitation of  Citizens tor Improved Government supporters, but Lee denies any affiliation,  although he says he "may have talked  with them and may agree with their  aims."  If Pearson has managed to hang onto  the support he used In defeating Jack  Whitaker Ih Ihe last election, he should be  re-elected handily. Lee hopes to capitalize  on the sentiment that the regional board  has "dictatorial" leanings and that Area C  is getting pushed around.  Perhaps the quietest race on the  peninsula is being steppod off In Area E.  With incumbent Ed Johnson retiring,  contenders George Gibb and Ken Crosby  are attempting to attract as much support  and stir up as little opposition as possible.  If there is any Issue at all In Area E, lt  centers less on the Regional District than  on the area's relationship with neighbouring Gibsons.'  Gibsons Alderman Jim Metzler succeeded ln bringing that question to the (ore  by directing a question of the two candidates during the recent all-candidates  meeting In the village.  The question, as he phrased lt, was,  "Would you support recreation In Gibsons  on a specified area basis?"   ,  Crosby replied, yes, that he would.  Gibb sidestepped the question by saying  that lf "the people of Area E wish to  support facilities they use In Gibsons, PU  go along. K they want to spend their tax  money on something else, I'U go along  with that."   *  Gibb's skepticism of the village was  made clear during another part of the  meeting when he referred to Gibsons'  "slash and run" expansion.  The contest for Gibsons representative  to the board, like the village's aldermanic  .  and mayoral elections, ls overshadowed  by tho water issue.  Jack Marshall is the foremost critic of  the proposed transfer of the village water  system to the regional district and Incumbent Jim Metzler, the Idea's most  articulate supporter. Little else sqems to  be at Issue In the campaign.  Metzler says he doesn't believe a  substantial number of people are  genuinely alarmed by the water proposal,  although many may be confused about it.  /But In ylbsons, which seldom has a largo  (turnout for muncipal elections, even a  handful of disgruntled voters could spell  trouble. .

By KERRA LOCKHART  One of the most fascinating aspects of  this year's municipal elections in Sechelt  is the political intrigue that has begun to  dominate the campaign.     -      ,  The question of who supports whom ���  and why���is far more fascinating than the  nominal issues raised by candidates for  the two aldermanic seats and one regional  board spot.  For the first timeS group of local  developers and real-estate agents are  openly backing two of the candidates.  Another developer, who owns large chunks  of village property is running for one of the  aldermanic seats. A former regional  board planner wants to get elected to the  council and through this onto the board.  The only incumbent up for re-election is  standing on his record and the remaining  contender was nominated by one of his  opponents.  Probably the most influential.group in  this election is the loose amalgamation  known as the "Citizens for Improved  Government".  According to Sechelt Building Supplies  owner Hayden Killam ether people  associated with the group include Stan  Anderson, Don Sutherland, Ray Stockwell,  Rudy Crucil and Bob Allen.  These men are supporting barber  Frode Jorgensen, who nearly won a seat  last year, and newcomer Olaf Wallander  who announced at last week's all-  candidates' meeting that we were all "well  on the path to communism".  While the most significant member of the  "improved government" groups has to be  -Killam who is currently embroiled in a  zoning dispute with the village councU, the  other known members have consistently  opposed the Sechelt Vicinity Plan.  Whoever is. elected to council will be  responsible for drafting a further plan for  the core Sechelt area and there will be  pressure' to both lift the current three  storey height restrictions on buildings and  to expand commercial and industrial  zones within the village.  Jorgensen spent much of Thursday  night' meeting telling everyone how glad  he was to be living in Sechelt and what a  pleasure it gave him to know most of the  citizens personally. Asked his position on  Killam's dispute over his lumber yard,  Jorgensen said he would have to study the  matter further. Wallander, asked the  same question, replied "I think he has the  most beautiful site in the village... I  can't fight the man and I don't intend to."  Wallander admitted his real interest is  to win the regional board seat as "that's  where the power is".      x  Developer Hank Hall has circulated a  questionnaire among village voters and  says, if elected, he will base his performance on the replies he has received.  Hall owns industrial-zoned property  behind the Legion where he intended to  build the "Paul Bunyoh" shopping centre.  He also has plans to put up a large hotel on  Porpoise Bay.  Hall was one of the two people who,  signed the nomination papers of Ed  Nicholson, his opponent for both the  village and regional board seats.  Nicholson would like to take over as  Sechelt's financial chairman and promises  to clear up the confusion he feels exists in  local bylaws. While not anti-development,  he wants to see higher density buildings  confined to designated areas in the village.  This  year's  development   critic   is  ��� candidate Adrian Stott, who intends to  keep Sechelt a "friendly, personal place to  live",  Stott's major drawbacks are his  association with regional board maverick  Peter Hoemberg, which some people view  with suspicion, and whatever lingering  enmity he incurred when senior planner  for the district.  Considering the opposition facing him  in this election, incumbent Morgan  Thompson -is doing virtually no campaigning. He is relying on his past record  as an alderman. Previously, Thompson  has commanded the Chamber of Commerce vote but that may well have  changed this time around with the  defection of the "Improved Government"  supporters to Jorgensen and Wallander.  But basically, when Sechelt voters go to  the polls November 19, they will be making  a choice among personalities.  MORGAN THOMPSON  Morgan W. Thompson, 47, is seeking reelection to a two-year term as alderman  for the village of Sechelt.   ���  Thompson, a merchant, has served five  years on the village council and two years  as a regional board director for the  village.

By DENNIS FITZGERALD  The issue in Saturday's school board  election for two trustees from Rural Area  B���the only issue���is Jock Smith/current  chairman of the Surrey .School Board,  Smith is challenging Incumbent Don  Douglas and Davis Bay resident Tim  Frizzell.  Douglas and Frizzell have basically  pledged themselves to a continuation of  the board's harmonious doing-business-as-  usual. They are both strong on community  involvement and on maintaining the  current rapport between the board and the  district's teachers.  Smith, although he would hardly oppose those goals, has some definite ideas  about where the educational system  should be going. He says parents want a  heavier emphasis on basic education, "on  Polling places  Following are the polling places for the  regional district village and school district  elections Saturday, November 19.

He is also critical of the educational  system's attention to "social problems",  which he said "dissipates what the schools  can do well."  Smith-drew some criticism at the  candidates meeting for his references to  the provincial Ministry of Education's  leadership. "We get enough of that from  Victoria," said one questioner. "The  problem is what can we do here."  He was also questioned about the  hostility between the Surrey board and the  Surrey School Teachers Association���he  denied that there was any such antagonism���and about the feasibility of a  dual role on the two boards. (Although he  did not mention it during the meeting, he  afterward told a Times reporter mat If  elected here, he would resign in Surrey,  where he has one year remaining of his  term.)  Smith said he intends to move to the  Sunshine Coast, but did not say when.  Friz-ell and Douglas were on the  sidelines for most of the meeting and  occasionally fumbled for words In  responding to questioning, a problem  which never afflicted Smith, who came  prepared with a folder of source material  and a wealth of ready responses.  Smith did have one problem, however.  He continually made reference to "your"  schools (Sechelt district) and "our"  schools (Surrey). Unless there is a vast  and undetected reservoir of discontent  about the local school system, Smith's  inability to say "our" schools when  referring to the local system will likely be  the trademark of his defeat.

By DENNIS FITZGERALD  The incumbents in Gibsons' municipal  elections would prefer to run on their  record, but the challengers ��� most of  them ��� want to talk about water.  At sta>e are the mayoralty and two  aldermanic seats.  The issue of the village's proposed  water system transfer to the Regional  District has overshadowed everything else  in the campaign. And although no one  really knows exactly how much opposition  to the move there is within the village,  almost everyone is playing it safe.  Even Mayor Larry Labonte, who last  June was in smiling agreement to the  transfer at a joint meeting between village  officials and regional directors, now says  he is opposed to the idea.  His opponent,' Lome Blain, and  aldermanic and regional board candidate  Jack Marshall are the race's foremost  critics of the water deal.  Marshall, who is also opposing incumbent Alderman Jim Metzler for the  village's regional board seat, defines the  issue as a fight against a gradual attrition  of Gibsons' identity to regional government!  At the recent candidates meeting in  Gibsons, he said he would work as a  regional director "to prevent, intervention  in Gibsons".  Metzler seems surprised by the furor  around the water issue and accuses his,  opponents of playing on rumors .and  "talking about things they know nothing  about". He is the only one of the Gibsons  candidates willing to defend the water  system transfer. "It's a matter of looking  ahead and planning for 20 years from  now1," he said at the candidates meeting.  At the same-time, Metzler is a consistent supporter of the village's autonomy  with regard to the Regional District.  Aldermanic candidate Terry Amiel,  meanwhile, is attempting to conduct a  campaign based on a general improvement of the condition of the village's  existing facilities and more representative  government.  He stresses his involvement in the  business community, which he says brings  him into "daily contact with large numbers of people".  "Although growth and development are  necessary, the people who live here now  are the ones whose needs we should be  serving," he said at the candidates  meeting.  Aldermanic candidate Lawrence  Trainor has a sort of casual alliance with  Marshall and Blain, but he fails, to match  their enthusiasm for the water, issue. He  says he can't take a position until  somebody comes up with some clear in  formation.  With all the flap, about the water  transfer, there has been little opportunity  for other issues to surface in the Gibsons  campaign. Questions about recreation, for  instance, didn't emerge at the candidates  meeting until after it was agreed to cut off  the water-related questions.  Labonte and Metzler, as the two incumbents, point to such projects as the  swimming pool, Harmony HaU, paving  and water system improvements, dog  control, the museum, the curling club and  retaining the ICBC office in Gibsons.  - Whether such accomplishments can  outweigh the-suspicion created by the  proposed water transfer won't be known  until November 19.

For mayor of Gibsons  TIMES ��� Expansion of the commercial area in Upper Gibsons has  created hardships for businesses in Lower  Gibsons. What, U anything, should be done  to assist the Lower Gibsons commercial  area?  BLAIN ��� I do recognize the historical  values of this area and would like to see it  developed as an attraction for the boating  fraternity from other areas. For example,  "The Beachcombers" In themselves are  an attraction. Beyond that, council will  have to rely on suggestions from the  business people concerned as to how the  area may be made more attractive to the  buying public but subject to agreement of  other businesses situated elsewhere,  which are also taxpayers and as such have  a right to say how tax dollars should be  spent.  LABONTE ��� The national economic  climate has often been overlooked when  tales of hardships are expressed. It is not  Just a local problem. It is my belief that  those businesses ln not Just the lower area  but In all of Gibsons should work through  their cltambor In providing input to  council. My office door is always open and  my phone number Is listed.  TIMES���Although temporarily  shelved, the Idea of a marina development  for Gibsons Harbour has been generally,  endorsed by the council. Do you support  the concept?  BLAIN���I do, but subject to being able  to finance the project without undue strain  on the budget of the village.  LABONTE ��� Yes, I'm in favour of the  concept.  TIMES ��� Gibsons councU now plans to  begin negotiations with the Regional  District in order to define the terms and  conditions of a regional takeover of the  village water systeni. Do you support  transfer of ownership of this system to the  Regional District?  BLAIN ��� A takeover of the $1 miUion  village water system by the Regional  District for f 1 would only be of advantage  to the latter and would Inevitably result ln  an increase of water rates to village  residents, in spite of nebulous promises  made by the Regional District to the effect  that there wouldn't be an "Immediate"  Increase. I reject this proposition outright  but would be favourable to selling water to  Uie Regional District at a negotiated price  and subject to village requirements.  LABONTE - No, I'm not in favour of  transfer of ownership but ready to  negotiate something beneficial to both  ���parties.  TIMES ��� Gibsons has been subjected  to allegations of "empire building" and  "prevlnciaUsm" as a result of certain  council actions (for example, council's  decisions not to join some regional functions); What Ib your response to these  criticisms?  BLAIN - If council feels that It is  against the better Interests of its citizens  to Join certain regional fuctlons, it ls only  proper for council to refrain from committing the village to participation. Name  calling by antagonists from outside the  village only confirms that council acted  correctly In the matter.  LABONTE ��� What are the reverse  allegations when the SCRD d6*S Hot Join  Gibsons in a municipal function, e.g. dog  control?  TIMES ��� Are there ether Issues of  imrtifrtllir cencsrn to yen?  BLAIN - Not At this time.  LABONTE ��� There are many Issues  the council ls faced with every day. People  should participate more ln the operation of  the village businesses. I'm satisfied with  Uie progress the village has made ln the  last four years.  *\  TTMESr-Expansion bf the commercial  area in Upper Gibsons has created hardships for businesses in Lower Gibsons.  What, if anything, should be done to assist  ttie Lower Gibsons commercial area?  - AMIEL���The development of better  marine faciUties which is, in itself, long  overdue whould also be of great benefit to  the merchants of the lower area.  MARSHALL���Development of harbour. Imaginative and constructive zoning  bylaws. Light industries. Plans .could be  made to develop both upper and lower  Gibsons without conflict.  METZLER���I question your premise of  hardship solely begause of the expansion  unless you include both areas. However,  my idea is to encourage the downtown  merchants in their efforts to create a  distinctive atmosphere through by-law  amendments. Ultimately I would like to.  see.the harbour area much like Carmel in  California���a year round attraction for  metropoUtan residents.  It is essential to ensure that there is  'diM&gifc, *bet;ween the tillage Council, the '*  appropriate VUlage Staff and the Gibsons  Harbour Business Association, so that  ways and means can be explored to  produce an acceptable development plan.  This must be treated as an urgent matter.  Certain businesses such as motels,  restaurants, and professional services,  should be encouraged to expand or locate  in the lower VUlage.      *  The development of the harbour, the  provision of a marina and a general cleanup of the area should be high on the list of  vUlage priorities. The area pwst be improved physlcaUy in order to attract  people to it.  TIMES ��� although temporarily  shelved, the idea of a marina development  for Gibsons Harbour has been gereraUy  endorsed by the councU. Do you support  the concept?  AMIEL-Yes.  MARSHALL���Cart before the horse.  Federal government.breakwater and  dredging (first, then plan the marina.  METZLER���Yes, when the economic  situation becomes stable. The concept I've  been working toward is a marina-  recreation complex.that residents can be  proud of.  .. .TRAINOR���I am a strong supporter of  the Gibsons Harbour Development Plan. It  should not be shelved. On the contrary >t  should be proceeded with as a matter of  great urgency; I do not beUeve that sufficient emphasis has been placed upon the  Importance of the plan in the past. Now is  the time to get on with it, not some vague  time In the future. It ls the key to the  survival of the lower Gibsons area.  TIMES���Gibsons council now plans to  begin negotiations with the Regional  District In order to define the terms and  conditions of a regional takeover of the  village water system. Do you support  transfer of ownership of this system to the  Regional District?  AMIEL���I don't feel It Is necessary to  give up complete control of the water  system. There must bo an agreement  which can be reached to the benefit of both  parties concerned.  MARSHALL-Doflnltely not!  Ownership and control of the water system  must remain with the municipality. I  favour future co-operation with the  Regional District with regard to their  needs for water, but no takeover of the  Gibsons system.  , METZLER���Yss. Even the present  waterworks chairman has stated publicly  on three dccaalons Ikrtow of that Gibsons  will eventuaUy be served by the Regional  District water system. What Is the point of  having expensive engineering studies  made and then ignoring them?  TnA|_,Kift*<*I nonet believe it is wise te  commit oneself to support a proposal that  has been so 1U defined. Much more Information must be made available to both  myself and the public before I am  prepared to make such a grave decision.  TIMES-Gibsons has been subjected te  ���Usgatfons of "empire tralldlnf"  and  "provincialism" as a result of certain  actions (for example, councU's decisions  not to join some regional functions). What  is your response to these criticisms?  AMIEL���Each area's own concerns  must be taken care of by themselves first.  However, when a project which is of  benefit to both parties arises then a need  for cooperation arises.  MARSHALL���Gibsons ��� municipal  councU is entitled to decline integration  with Regional District projects when these  projects bring no benefit to the people of  this village. The Regional District has  declined funding for the Gibsons Community Swimming Pool, even though the  pool will be open to the entire Sunshine  Coast populace.  METZLER���Very simple. A matter of  economics. Gibsons is presently in some  Regional District functions from which the  taxpayers derive no benefits. There is no  good argument to support member  municipaUties' participation in every  Regional District- function. What isi.good  'for- the Regional' District does-."not  necessarily apply to a muhicipaUty.  TRAINOR���I have had the opportunity  to observe objectively the geo-poUtical  transformation that is taking place on the  Sunshine Coast. There is a gradual  polarization evplving which increases the  importance of the three major areas of-  population, namely, Gibsons, Sechelt and  Pender Harbour. This fact must not be  overlooked when considering any change.  I beUeve that the aUegations to which  Gibsons has been subjected are unfounded  and made when emotions where running  high. There is good reason for any  municipaUty to proceed with caution when  being asked' to forfeit some or all of it  sovereignty and independence for rather  dubious "gain".  TIMES���Are there other issues of  particular concern to you?  AMIEL���A general and overaU effort  must be made to improve the condition of  present facilities of the vUlage. Before  embarking on any further large projects,  we should make sure we can be proud of  what we have got and that they are  adequate and properly maintained to the  needs of people who use them.  MARSHALL-It is the Regional  District that is empire buUding. It should  not have both water resources and land  development as functions. It should not  interfere, as it is doing, in municipal affairs (Gibsons). The Regional District is  spending far too much money, when we  are supposed to be "tightening our belts",  therefore being a burden to the taxpayer.  METZLER���The refusal or inabihty of  people to accept the concept of planning  for 20 years from now and not just day to  day make-do projects.  TRAINOR���I wUl support any wor-  thwlule idea to improve the relationship  between Gibsons, the Regional Board and  other communities, as long as there is a  genuine desire on the part of these  organizations to co-operate. There is a  very wide gulf of misunderstanding that  must be bridged.  I support the encouragement of youth  oriented-programmes which wUl help to  develop character and community spirit.

What seems not to be realized by bur  planners is that textbook concepts are  based upon history. The core concept was  great untU the energy crunch. Today we  future and this should be designated now  for ffiture use so that there is .plenty on  hand which keeps the value down. Commercial land needs to be where the people  are, but industrial should be set back such  as away fom highways or, arterial roads  (not where the present area is in Area E).  GIBB���The lack of commercial land in  have to plan for people to reach stores and"'Area E does not seem to be a problem  faciUties on their own two feet.  AREAE  CROSBY ��� Zoning is definitely a  necessity for good community planning.  Putting commercial and industrial areas  where they should be. As for high density  development, this too can be controUed by'  land sizes and the availabUity of services  such as sewer and water.  GIBB ��� Yes, defined land use  designations are necessary because I  think that residential and commercial  property should be separate form industrial areas, so that there is not a conflict of interest. We should have a regular  review of classifications to make sure  conflicts between zones are kept to  minimum and that needs are being met.  High density development should be kept  in the core areas of Gibsons and Sechelt  until their limits are reached. This kind of  , planing prevents urban sprawl.  . GIBSONS  MARSHALL��� Yes. Positive answers  seem only conunonsehse. There must be  planning.  METZLER ��� Yes, on each count.  TIMES ��� Some persons argue that  there is not enough land hi current commercial and-or industrial zones to meet  potential demand and that zoning  restrictions have artlficlaUy inflated  property values, discouraging new  business ventures. Do you feel that an  expansion of commercial or industrial  areas is needed in your area? If so, where ���  generaUy should that expansion occur?  AREAA  HARRISON ��� Fishing, the forest industry, and tourism are the backbone of  the Area A economy. We must be sure to  allow waterfront space for people to make  a living. A separate industrial zone away  from the water doesn't make much sense  for this area.  PATERSON ��� For this purpose, plans  are made, and the people should have a  voice.  SIM ��� At present, the commercial  zones appear to be adequate, and the  community planning committee is  working on a plan to present at the next  public meeting where the pubUc can.  decide. Inflation of property values cannot  be blamed on zoning; adequate avaUable  land wiU control inflated values.  SECHELT  NICHOLSON ��� I beUeve there is not  enough commercial and Industrial zones. I  also believe Henry HaU's Cameo Lands on  Field Road is a start in the right direction.  STOTT ��� A shortage of business land  has been a problem around Sechelt for too  long, but at last something is happening.  The airport industrial area, and the  commercial land made useable in the  viUage by the new sewere, wUl do much to  help. In the future, though, more care  must be taken to ensure there remains an  adequate supply of land for businesses.  WALLANDER ��� As the area  population grows undoubtedly there wiU  be a need for additional commercial and  industrial areas. Each situation wiU have  to develop its own needs and should be  judged at the time unhindered by  restrictive bylaws,  AREAC  LEE ��� Area C needs light industrial  only in the Field Road and East Porpoise  Bay areas. Commercial needs should be  met as the conclusions of the previous  question.  AREAE  CROSBY���There is not enough land in  commercial and industrial zones for the  because of our proximity to the abundance  of commercial areas in Gibsons. There are  areas that we could look at for industrial  purposes adjacent to existing industrial  sites. However, before we start rezoning, a  need must be there and a continual appraisal taken to^ ensure that future conflicts do hot arise between industrial and  residential zones. This is where buffer  zones, (i.e. green belts in the form of  acreage size lots; play an important role.  TIMES ��� Several recent subdivision  appUcations have included proposals for  "cluster" or relatively high density  residential development in. rural areas. Do  you have any particular objection to such  subdivisions, provided they satisfy  regional zoning requirements as to  average lot size?  AREAA  HARRISON��� Land-use contracts for  high density cluster housing' should be  referred to a committee of the affected  neighbourhood residents for consideration  and approval. The Regional Board should  not go against the. wishes of local  residents.  PATERSON ��� "Cluster" dwellings  aren't in favour. Some residents may want  them in the future (they do make efficient  use of land area, and may satisfy the  "outdoors" urge of an apartment-  dweUer). I'm open-minded!  SIM���No, but I beUeve owners, only, of  neighbouring property must have a strong  voice on cluster development and they  must conform to aU zoning requirements.  A certain type of apartment dwelling is a  necessity for younger working and older  retired people, who do not wish to support  a single famUy dwelling. Such developments could contribute to the area's  economy.  ,.  SECHELT  NICHOLSON ��� My biggest concern  would be a sewage disposal.  STOTT ��� I think cluster development  could be quite suitable in many areas,  particularly where the ground is difficult,  provided it isn't used as an excuse to  squeeze in more homes than the bylaws  normally aUow. However, the pubUc is  obviously- suspicious of this type of  development, and there ismo need to aUow  it over their objections.  WALLANDER ��� No objection.  AREAC  LEE ��� Quite obviously this is related  to the ecology needs, apart from the need  for young and senior citizens to find  housing within sensible financial reach.  Such clusters should make provision for  stores and related facUities. Energy needs  wUl dictate a return to the smaU village  concept ��� European style.  AREAE  CROSBY ��� It is my experience that  everybody wants to Uve on the waterfront.  Therefore, you get high prices and high  density Uving. This doesn't normally  happen in rural areas unless there is some  attraction for people to want to Uve there,  but it is a necessity to ��� have some  clustering to create lots of a low value for  persons who are building their first house  or for retirement. But once again this  clustering should be close to services that  are already available. ','T,  GIBB��� Cluster housing, or condominiums, are urban In character and as  such should stay in urban areas, e.g.  Gibsons and Sechelt. However, I am not  opposed to the conceptvof! "averaging"  parcels of land. '  TIMES ��� Suggestions are made from  time to time that the Regional District  should undertake new functions, such as  recych^gor dogcoin^L{>o>yQn t��fnk the  Regional District should enter into these  or any other new functions? Bev specific.  ' AREAA ." -\  HARRISON ��� Area A has the second  highest, assessment on the peninsula..  Obviously, it is to the advantage of the  regional board to have Area*A in as many  functions as possible in order to gain access to our tax dollars, We are now paying  $60,000 directly and.,well over $100,000  through per capita provincial grants. AU  we receive is a poorly maintained dump  and a growing payroU of public servants in  Sechelt  PATERSON ��� Any function taken on  by the regional board should be carefuUy  evaluated first. There should be' careful  expenditure of pubUc monies. No subsidy,  no grant without security.  SIM ��� The first duty of the regional  boad is to represent the residents of the  area. WhUe there are demands for some  added regulations, there seems to be a  danger that we are, br soon wttl become,  over-regulated. However, if a need for a  further regulation becomes obvious, it wUl  have to be given consideration.  SECHELT  NICHOLSON -Not at this time.  STOTT ��� Ih general, I would prefer to  see as Uttle government as possible.  However, if the pubUc wants a service that  private enterprise wiU not supply, the  Regional District should offer to supply it,  provided those using the service pay the  bulk of the costs. I am opposed to Regional ,  District functions being subsidized by the  general taxpayer. Taxes are high enough  already.  WALLANDER ��� At present no others  than those they are already involved with  and possibly eliminate some of their  existing functions. v  AREAC  LEE ��� Dog control should be by  referendum and councU should act accordingly. RecycUng having^ regard to  smaU population is not economicaUy  feasible. It is my opinion that the first  priority is not new functions but  satisfactory operation of existing ones.  AREAE  CROSBY ��� The Regional District  should take on any function that is  dupUcated by the villages or any other  area such as airports, dog control, etc.  GIBB ��� I would not support either of  these functions unless there was an  unusual demand for them. I agree with the  idea of both principle. However, we have  limited finances, therefore we should  spend the money on items of priority first,  e.g. fire protection and hospital.  GIBSONS  MARSHALL - Regional District  should interest itself in discovering the  -social and economic heeds of unorganized  communities (Hopkins,- Granthams,  Roberts Creek, etc.) which do not receive  any direct share of their per capita taxes  for their own use. Not enough population  now for dog pound, recycling ��� these are  expensive non-essentials. Needed: Better  doctor service at Pender,, swimming  classes, community halls, assisting local  ratepayers associations in unorganized  areas.'' ���"  METZLER ��� One of the problems  facing directors is how to deal with the  Regional District as a unit. Unfortunately,  not each electoral area requires exactly  the same functions so it is difficult to be  specific, but generaUy I support recycUng  and domestic animal control on a district  basis.  TIMES ��� Are there other Issues of1  particular concern to you?  the Lyons Creek water^ystem get going,  the Lyons Park in operation, and another  joint-school named and upgraded. And an  increase in regional thinking! In my area  we've had an extreme leftist group, and an  extreme right. No development, or a lot!  . There must be many more who think as I  do, that there's a middle way to go ��� slow,  controUed growth. That's my concern, and  why I'm here.  - SIM ��� a) An advisory planning committee, representative of aU people of the  area, to be consulted by and to work with  ihe area director, is essential.  ' b) Local atmosphere that would improve job opportunities locaUy, especiaUy  for our young people.  , c) RecycUng ��� responsibility of the  individual ��� taught in schools. If this is  done to any general extent, commercial  firms could handle the by-products  without a further drain of the taxpayer.  d) I wiU work to see that control of aU  regional board functions within Area A  remains with the people of the area.  ���SECHELT  NICHOLSON ��� I beUeve the Regional  District should be instrumental in getting  a breakwater buUt to include a marina,  barge faciUties and a smaU boat launching  ramp.  STOTT ��� I feel the Regional District  should make a. greater effort to explain  and discuss its activities pubUcly. The  widespread misunderstanding about the  purpose and intentions of the regional  board is producing serious bad feelings in  the community. The board wiU never get  the backing it needs to function properly if  the voters think it is trying to put.  something over on them. '  WALLANDER ��� Yes, the apparent  cycle of persons who come to the coast to  serve as civU servants and after short  service are reUeved of their duties and  then endeavour to become elected to of-.  f ices which control the positions they have  just left.  AREAC  LEE ��� We have to urgently bend our  efforts to attracting commercial enterprises to this area in order that we  broaden and strengthen our tax base.  FaUure to do this wUl undoubtedly mean a  -raising of the miU rate (currently at $7.20  per person per miU) placing the principal  burden on the fixed income group, mainly  retirees who make,up 60 per cent of the  local population.  No one .connected to, or offering services to developers or special interest  groups should be seated on the board of  directors. Similarly no two persons connected in one business enterprise (no  matter how honest or altruistic their  motives) should be seated on the board.  This conclusion is the consensus of opinion  of 200 interviews these last five weeks.  AREAE  *    CROSBY ��� (No response)  GIBB ��� I would Uke to see the regional  board more accessible and not thought of  as being so rigid. I would work towards  these goals.  GIBSONS  MARSHALL ��� None at the moment,  but if elected, aU issues wiU concern me.,  METZLER ��� I am concerned about the  increasing amount of bureaucracy  becoming evident. It, seems elected officials and staff are drifting away.from the  people and becoming bound by regulatory  devices.
