GVRD plans
park future
by Rick Hiebert
A new management plan by
the Greater Vancouver Regional
District will shape the future of
Pacific Spirit Park.
The plan for the park, which
comprises most ofthe undeveloped
sections ofthe University Endowment Lands, commits the GVRD
to seek "as much public input as
possible* into its future plans for
the park, area parks superintendent Mitch Sokalski said.
"It has been very gratifying to
see the input of the public,"
Sokalski said. It took over 20
months of workshops andhearings
involving the work of over 700
people and 20 user lobby groups to
come up with the proposals in the
plan, expected to be approved later
this month by the GVRD board.
"The challenge now is to
implement the plan. The plan is
only as good as the efforts made to
implement it, but we have made a
good start," he said.
UBC has several committees
that interact with the GVRD.
Sokalski and his staff meet weekly
with the Campus Development
office. The UBC Real Estate Corporation (UBCREC) and the new
UBC incinerator project also are
part of committees interacting with
the GVRD.
Probably the most involved
UBC committee involved with the
UEL is the UBC Technical Committee on the Pacific Spirit Regional Park. Committee chair and
geography instructor Margaret
North feels that UBC is probably
safe from being hurt by the plan,
particularly the areas of the park
that are used for UBC research.
"They've always been sympathetic to input from user groups
and the university," she said.
"Everyone has to take the respon
sibility to make this into a useable
The plan also has the support
of interested parties like the Wreck
Beach Preservation Society.
"Ifs an exciting management
plan. The staff of the GVRD have
made a commitment to listen to all
park users. I hope they are using
this process as a model for other
GVRD parks and facilities," Judy
Williams, WBPS president said.
"Our next battle is with UBC.
We have no problems with this
The plan, which was approved
by a GVRD committee October 17
and is to be voted on by the GVRD
board of directors October 30,
commits the GVRD to:
—protecting the 221 acre
ecological reserve inside the park.
—requiring permits for entry
to the heron nesting areas on the
south part ofthe UEL shoreline.
—consulting with the public
and UBC regarding the erosions
and protection of the cliffs overseeing the beaches ofthe UEL.
—protecting local fishing areas and the Fraser River Marsh,
launching awareness and education programmes.
—work with the Wreck Beach
Preservation Society to ensure full
public input into projects affecting
the beach's natural setting.
—re vamping the trail system,
with an eye to protecting the resources of the park while keeping
it accessible to park users.
—monitoring mountain bike
use on the trails ofthe park for the
next two years, restricting bike
travel to multi-purpose trails.
—work with UBC Campus
planning to ensure that problems
between the university and the
park management are lessened, so
both can use the park effectively.

Wreck Beach given
semi-official status
by Rick Hiebert
Denizens of the Lower
Mainland's most infamous "clothing optional" beach can rest easy—
they have Greater Vancouver Regional District approval for baring
Wreck Beach, the nude beach
on the shoreline below the cliffs
beside the university, has been
recognized by the new GVRD Pacific Spirit Park management plan
as a section of the beach where
nudity is acceptable.
The plan recognizes the
shoreli ne from Acadia beach to the
base of Booming Ground Trail (200
metres from the border of the
Musqueam Indian Reserve) as
"clothing optional." Furthermore,
the GVRD has committed to
working with a beach liaison
committee made up ofWreck Beach
lovers, the public and park officials
to ensure that the beach will be
"maintained in as natural a state
as possible."
Judy Williams, president of
the Wreck Beach Preservation
Society (WBPS) is happy. Wreck
Beach is the first nude beach to be
granted semi-official status by any
government in Canada.
That's a major victory," she
said. "What is really nice about it
is that naturist (nudist) groups
from all over the Western world
lent their support. It's the first
time that all of us have stood together."
At the meeting to approve the
plan October 16, the GVRD heard
submissions from nudists from
Canada, the USAand Europe, who
argued for the status for the beach.
John Laydes of the Federation of
Canadian Naturists came from
Ontario to speak to the committee.
The plan is to be finally approved at a GVRD board meeting
October 30, although that is probably a formality.
Williams said the ruling,
which commits the GVRD to
working with the WBPS to protect
the beach was a heartening win for
the group, which has lobbied intensely for the interests of beach
"This is the culmination of
years of planning and trying to
keep the beach natural and we've
done it. The people who love and
adore the beach are ecstatic," Williams said.
"It'savery enlightened, avery
positive step and we love them for
it. It shows a live and let live atti
tude that perhaps you only get on
the West Coast. Hopefully other
beaches can benefit from what we
have done."
She said a survey the WBPS
conducted last summer was also
influential. It said 48 per cent of
the beach's users wore clothes (as
compared to the 52 per cent
who...didn't), showing that the
beach is still open to users of all
"That proves to all critical
people that the only things that
keeps people away from the beach
are their own hang-ups," she said.
Area parks supervisor Mitch
Sokalski said the decision sprung
naturally out ofthe two-year consultation process for the plan and
reinforces the 1983 recognition of
the boundaries of Wreck Beach.
The adoption ofthe plan, however,
gives Wreck Beach semi-permanent status based on the status
"When an elected board has
endorsed a clothing optional beach,
subject to the Criminal Code sections on nudity as interpreted by
the attorney-general of BC, it is
certainly unique," Sokalski said.

As October nears its end, midterm pressures can be forgotten
with the imminent festivities of
Halloween. For the Dobroskay
family, however, this time of year
marks a tragic event that has severely disrupted their lives.
Three years ago, on October
28, UBC Science student Emerson
Grant Dobroskay disappeared
without a trace. He was last seen
leaving the SUB after an evening
at the Pit, presumably on his way
home to Totem Park residence.
Though it remains an ongoing
investigation both by the UBC
detachment ofthe RCMP and his
immediate family, the search for
Dobroskay has not; resulted in any
new developments. "The file is still
open but there is nothing hew to
this point," said Constable Hough,
RCMP officer assigned to the case.
The family strongly feels information is being withheld, and
Dobroskay's aunt, Teesh Backlund,
makes an appeal to students and
faculty to disclose anythingrelated
to Dobroskay's disappearance.
His safe return or information
leading to his whereabouts will be
monetarily rewarded.
Unsolved Mysteries is considering the Dobroskay mystery
for a feature story. Definite plans
include mention on the television
programme's "roll call" of missing
persons to be aired this fall or
In the meantime, Backlund
writes, "We need your continuing
support and are encouraged by
your readers' prayers, kind words
and letters."
A Caucasian male with blue
eyes and curly light brown hair,
Dobroskay is 5'6" tall and weighs
130 pounds. He was last seen'
wearing a brown sweater, blue
shirt, dark pants and dark shoes.
He would be twenty-five years of
Anyone with information on
his whereabouts or circumstances
leading up to Dobroskay's disappearance should contact the university detachment of the RCMP

Amnesty International (Al)
marked their 30th anniversary in
early October. A SUB concourse
display by Amnesty UBC, during
Prisoner of Conscience Week
brought home the reality ofhuman
rights abuse throughout the world.
Sheezia Islam, Amnesty
UBC's POC coordinator, stresses
that AI's mandate is not a sweeping one, but is very focussed.
"It is important to let people
know that we are not a political
organization. Our views are unbiased, and the main purpose is the
maintenance of certain articles of
the Declaration ofHuman Rights,"
said Islam.
Through the course of thirty
years, AI's public recognition has
grown (it won the Nobel Peace Pri ze
in 1977), acting as the light of hope
for the many for whom hope is
almost lost.
"I get frustrated thinking of
this one person in a cell praying
and hoping for release and justice,"
Islam said.
Nidal Ho, the adopted POC of
Amnesty UBC, has been jailed in
Syria since April 1987. He is being
held without charge or sentence
This is one of many human
rights cases with which Amnesty
International (Al) is concerned.
Ilo's alleged crime is membership in the Communist Party Political Bureau (CPPB), which does
not belong to the government-
dominated coalition of political
parties, the National Political
Ilo and hundreds of other
CPPB members were imprisoned
between 1980 and 1989 for dissenting, although the CPPB does
not advocate violence. POCs like
Ilo are detained for their beliefs,
colour, sex, ethnic origin, or religion.
AFs mandate focuses on the
release of prisoners of conscience
(POCs), advocates fair and prompt
trials, and opposes the use of torture and the death penalty.
AI's stance against the death
penalty was highlighted in connection with the extradition of alleged serial murderer, Charles Ng,
to the United States, where he
may face capital punishment if
Darren Goetze, chairperson
of Amnesty UBC, says AI's main
concern was not accurately portrayed in the media.
"People lost focus of AI's
mandate in the Charles Ng case,"
he said.
The general public feeling was
that Ng was already guilty, though
Important Notice
for Students interested

•and received your Notice of Recommended Award
he had to be tried in the States,
Goetze said. However, the main
issue Al was concerned about was
the extradition of Ng to California
to face the possible death sentence.
Goetze said there are many
reasons why Al opposes the death
penalty—that it is arbitrary, unjust and irrevocable. The eventual
extradition of Ng was a disappointment. As many see it, the
opposition of the death penalty
cannot be separated from the
movement for human rights,
Goetze said.
"No one, not even Ng should
face the death penalty," he said.
My charges against the police
continued from page 1
(1) The whole episode smirks of racism. Two black men were
suspected to have committed a crime, and the Vancouver police had
to brutalize the next two, unfortunate black men they could get. We
were never treated like suspects but, as one officer put it, we were
surely the criminals. It was as if they saw us coming out of the
robbery with smoking handguns.
We were treated like some lower animals because we are two
black men. From the police reaction to Kuda's questions, it is clearly
evident that the police did not have any specific description ofthe
robbers or their vehicle (assuming they escaped in one) with which
to confront us. The questions ofthe number of people in my car, what
colour of pants Kuda was wearing and our heights, certainly
confirms the fact that the only reason for our ordeal was the mere
fact that we are two black men.
(2) The police used more than reasonable force to make the arrest.
I was fully searched with my hands above my head and my legs
spread—that subsequent commands, from kneeling down, the kicks,
the handcuffs and other brutalizations were not necessary. After all,
nothing was found on me, there were at least four officers covering
me with drawn guns, the officer with the dog was at the alert—I
never showed any resistance or violence of any sort. I even volunteered identification but to no avail.
(3) The police neither informed me of any arrest nor did they tell me
why I was being arrested, although I asked for such information at
least four times. Of course, lower animals like us have no rights at
all. I used to see police tell people they are being arrested and read
them their rights as well.
(4) There was no apology for the indecent treatment and wrongful
arrest. It is only my persistent mention of calling my lawyer that
made the officer apologize to a machine for record purposes. We
really never got apologies. In fact, the officer's remark that we
finally turned out to be stars ofthe show suggests that we should
rather celebrate our humiliation in complete understanding that we
are now stars of a very successful Burrard St. movie (the movie title
will probably be The two black robbers"). I beg to disagree.
Based on this dehumanizing debacle, I hereby demand the
following from the police:
• that the officers responsible be fully investigated, and disciplined
•a written apology from the police.
• a guarantee that my freedom in Vancouver is not limited by the
colour of my skin.

"Science means knowing,
fiction means dreaming," says
Spider Robinson, one of several
BC authors who shared their
dreams with the public as part of
the International Writers
Prize-winning novelist
Leona Gom read from Y Chromosome, her newly published first
work of "speculative fiction."
Gom claims her long years as a
fan of pulp science fiction led her
to think, "Hey, I can do better
than this junk!"
Gom's story is set in the
middle ofthe 21st century, and
in the aftermath of nuclear war
and environmental holocaust the
males ofthe world are dying off.
While this may seem Utopian to
some, the current threat of
overpopulation is alarmingly
reversed, and Gom cautions "be
careful what you wish for, you
just m ight get it."
Hi jather Spears, better
knowri for her works of poetry,
has also just written her first
science fiction novel. Exploring
the idea of two people inhabiting
the same body, Moonfall is about
a future race of mental "twins."
Despite the disastrous potential
for sibling rivalry, these twins
feel pity for those fe w, poor
people born into tht mental
equivalent of solitaiy confinement.

culture had matured enough to
join stellar society. As a parting
gift, the aliens leave a mysterious symbiote which can enter a
person's body and lungs and
enable one to live "naked in

The sequel is about Top
Step, the artificial asteroid built
as a training ground for symbiotic, zero-gravity dancers, and
the endeavours of a frustrated,
middle-aged dancer with bad
knees to get into this "womb of
heaven, where they turn people
into angels." Her story one of

Exploring the complexities
by Lucho van Isschot
HOPEFUL immigrants
arrive in the promised
land—only to realise how easily
promises can be broken. The
land never allows them to feel at
"This is all very stylish,
uncle," declares Nik.
"Of course," replies his
uncle, "this is Canada!"
Sam and Me
- opens Friday
With her camera focussed
upon the immigrant experience,
Canadian director Deepa Mehta,
in her first feature-length film,
Sam and Me, explodes stereotypes about sexuality, immigrants, South Asians, Jewish
people, the young and the old.
The film was part of the
Vancouver International Film
Based on Mehta's ideas,
Ranjit Chowdry (the actor who
portrays Nik) wrote the screenplay.
The protagonists, a young
Indian immigrant (Nik) and an
elderly Jewish man (Sam)
develop beyond their respective
stereotypes. Indeed, they are also
much more than just "victims" of
racial stereotypes.
Mehta insists each and
every individual is a complex
personality, shaped by unique
circumstances. Sam and Me is a
fresh and innovative film—one
which definitely merits viewing.
The main themes of Sam
and Me challenge the notion
of Canadian prosperity and
One on one, Nik and
Sam become comrades, but
forces beyond their control
conspire against them.
In the final analysis,
Mehta does not paint an
idyllic picture of
multicultural unity—she does
not let us off the hook.
Mehta, however, does not
always rise above the trappings
of stereotyping and some of her
characters do fall somewhat flat.
But when the camera
focuses on Nik and Sam, or on
the small community of immigrant men who share a house
with Nik and his uncle, rich
characterizations emerge.
The film's powerful and
satisfying conclusion leaves
many questions about the nature
of Canadian society, without

THE UBYSSEY/5 Painful power
If you missed the hearings, you can see
it on talk shows. Miss the talk shows and
you can read about it in the glossy magazine
of your choice.
Thanks to the publicity surrounding
American professor Anita Hill's testimony
that justice Clarence Thomas sexually harassed her during the time they worked
together, sexual harassment has become a
hot topic.
It is not a new phenomenon. Whenever
there is an unequal power relationship, the
possibility of sexual harassment exists.
Sexual harassment can also be used to create an imbalance of power between two
Anti-feminists say if women want
equality in the work place, they should be
able to handle anything male co-workers
throw at them. Some say women just take
things too seriously—that sexual comments
are meant as jokes. But jokes that belittle,
objectify or threaten are not funny.
The effect, not the intent, is the problem. It is not up to a man in power to
determine whether or not a woman is being
Women should be able to work in the
area of their choice, free from harassment
of any kind. Intimidation on the job lets a
woman know that she is not welcome in a
domain which some people consider to
belong solely to men. Women can be forced
out of jobs and a decent income.
Thomas, allegedly a harasser, is now in
a position to influence legislation which
directly affects women. His case is only one
example. That Anita Hill's testimony was
not treated with the concern it deserved is
only one example of how women's experiences are dismissed.
For all the talk of equality, changing the
conditions that women must daily contend
with is becoming more difficult.

Green menace
Over the pastfew weeks,
the students of UBC have
been traumatized by hoar des
of little green, wriggling
worms descending from the
treetops. The horrible creatures (a.k.a. "the Green
Menace"), camouflaged
against the greenery that
surround UBC sidewalks
and roads, quietly descend
on invisible threads and wait
for unwitting passers-by to
walk into them. After these
tiny terrors have successfully infiltrated a student's
hair, they will remain there
for hours, wriggling and
crawling around, with the
sole intent of embarrasing
their host and spreading
complete disgustthroughout
campus. They have also been
known to hang in thick curtains across busy sidewalks
and other critical locations
to increase their effectiveness. One report tells of
swarms of green miniature
monsters covering the bust
of Norman Mackenzie outside the Fredric Wood Theatre, showing their complete
lack of respect for human
Why haven't UBC
officials done anything about
the Green Menace? Are they
going to leave the students
to defend themselves against
the wriggling fiends? The
students of UBC need positive action, now.

Robin Hood
I feel that some people
are taking this summer's
infatuation with Robin Hood
a little too far. The glorification of thievery is fine for
the Hollywood grist mill but
stealing for profit or excitement is not cool, nor will it
ever be in our society. It's
easy to see why. Just place
yourself into the shoes of a
person or organization that
is missing some object of extreme value: a wallet, a car
stereo, maybe your computer, or as in the case of
Filmsoc, our VCR's and answering machine. That's
right, sometime between 9
pm and 1 am on Tuesday
night, Oct. 6th, a thief decided thatthe two VCR's and
the answering machine re-

siding in SUB 247 were fair
I think the person responsible for our missing
equipment is the human
equivalent to moral sewage
dumped into a pristine marine habitat. This selfish
and insensitive immorality
can do nothing but further
the vicious cycle of greed and
thoughtlessness prevalent in
North American culture. It's
obvious that stealing is expected and the norm. There
are locks and heavy duty
security systems on every
building to frustrate honest
folks and yet never enough
protection to prevent theft.
The problem lies in the complete breakdown of the psychological deterrentthat will
prevent people from committing such crimes. Then
of course there is the problem
of drug addicts and thieves
who are stealing for necessity rather than greed. It's
really difficult to prevent
your property from people
who are willing to do almost
anything to get it.
This stealing crime wave
has had dramatic effects on
the AMS. Now basic building insurance that is supposed to cover such things as
VCR's or stolen cash has a
deductible of $1000. Well,
how many clubs can afford
that? Even Filmsoc with its
steady source of income will
not be able to find the funds
to replace what we have lost
until next year's budget.
I feel such rage and frustration that this bloodsucking leech will probably never
be caught, nor will our
equipment ever be returned.
Filmsoc strives to provide
privileges to its membership
at a level almost unheard of
at Canadian universities.
We're proud to be able to
offer a lot for little in return.
However, this system of
Utopia breaks down when a
greedy party decides tohoard
rather than share.
A university community
is supposed to be above the
petty larceny that seems to
be a daily ritual in off-campus life. What ever happened to the integrity ofthe
so called top 10% of society?
Tuum Est does not include
the right to steal.
My final parting shot at
Filmsoc's very own amateur
grab and run cutpurse. I
hope you choke on the fact
that you left behind the re
mote control for the main
clubroom VCR. You can
come by any lunch hour and
ask Michael for it, if you've
got the guts.
Michael Gazetas
Filmsoc Chairperson
Ah, yes, I could have expected, and indeed did expect, the responses which I
received to my letter of Oct.
8 (Remember? the Bible
thumping one .)The response
was, "grab a sense of
humour", "Get a Grip",
"lighten up", "start enjoying
life". Perhaps my next letter
should be a witty attack on
feminism, or a humorous
slamming of homosexuals,
perhaps an horrendously
funny look at native Indians
(alaUBC engineers), or what
about a satirical jab at the
child with leukaemia—
what's that? You're not
laughing at these? What's
wrong with my sarcasm directed towards politically
correct groups? Oh, it offends? Well, lighten up, get
a grip, pull the pole from
your butt, laugh a little. Gee
you're boring. Man, Fm only
kidding! Oh, I see, I understand now—this is how it
works: Christians are narrow minded, overly serious
boobs. Why shouldn't they
take a bit of sarcasm directed
at the Bible? Why shouldn't
they just laugh it off when
The Ubyssey entitles its letter "Get out and make some
friends", or "Verily - I was
right, sayeth Ed" or whatever they titled this letter?
What's wrong with a little
Christophobia on campus
and particularly in The
Ubyssey? Fll tell you why—
for the same reason females
the distribution of threatening letters to females in
Vanier, which were called a
joke! For the same reason
The Ubyssey wouldn't have
printed aletter sarcastically
reviewing a homosexual
piece of literature! For the
same reason anyone would
protest anything—it assaults what they believe.
Don't get me wrong, I'm
not trying to pull a "Satanic
Verses" on you, I haven't put
a price on your head, but
equally I'm not going to let
you laugh unchallenged at
God. Sure there is lots of
humour in the Bible, but Bill
Denham's intention was not -*-
to show it off. His intention
was to slam the very concept
ofthe Bible.
I was offended by Mr.
Denham's letter, and seemingly you (Eric Hudson and
Steve Cavers) were offended «■•.
by mine. If you want to talk
about the Bible or Jesus, call
me, but you're wanting to
laugh at its expense, keep it
private and don't expect a
quiet chuckle if you make it "-
public. -,-,

In broad
On Monday, October
21st at 4:30 pm, as I was
walking towards the SUB
along the path between
Main library and the
Henning building, I unexpectedly felt an arm press
against the length of my
back. I found a strange
man (white male, approximately 35 years of age,
5'11", 160 lbs., blue, deep-
set eyes, acne-scarred
complexion, short, light
brown hair, gray Taiga-like
jacket, light jeans, and
brown leather shoes) to be
walking uncomfortably
close beside me. When I
stopped to ask him about
his behavior, he stood,
looking straightahead, and
strangely ordered, "Move
on...move on". Approximately ten minutes later, I
encountered him again in
the same area, however, I
was with a male companion this time and we confronted the man. His
behaviour immediately
became erratic. He spoke
of rape andbegan shouting
threats regarding a gun to
"come back and blow your
brains out". He then proceeded to run off. I have
notified campus security
and the RCMP and would
like people to be aware of

Colin's smile
The AMS Student's Council
made a major commitment in both
time and resources to aid the case
of Colin Beechinor, a four-year- old
boy who has recently been diagnosed with Monosomy 7, a rare
form of leukemia.
Three separate motions were
passed to create an ad-hoc committee to raise funding for the
equipment, an automated HLA
trayreading system, andmorethan
$240,000 in support services to
operate a UBC site Canadian Bone
Marrow Donor Registry.
Currently, children and adults
like Colin die two times out of three
before they receive the valuable
bone marrow transfusion that will
save their lives.
Kathleen Moffat, a representative from Colin's Smile which is
organizing the fund-raising campaign, indicated the money for the
HLA system will be soon provided
for by a 'major charitable group,'
but funding is still needed to process thebacklogof available donors.
Council set aside $1,000 for
the venture, and all interested students wishing to volunteer time or
make a donation to the cause
should contact Jason Brett, AMS
president, at 822-3971.
Those who wish to become
donors should contact the Canadian Red Cross Society and be
prepared to attend an information session, view a video presentation, sign a consent form
and give a blood sample to type
the bone marrow.
AMS pizza
outlet named
A new pizza outlet, due to open
in January, was named by the
Council with alternatives provided by students at large.
Six names were included on
the short list with "Slice me
Nice","Ke-R-Squared (jir2)", and
"Piece 'a' Pizza" coming at the
top ofthe list.
"Pie-R-Squared" ended up
being the room favourite, with
strong objections voiced by those
who wished to name it "Dukes."
Dukes was the cookie outlet with
the lease that was not renewed
in order that Blue Chip could be
Charles Redden, AMS General Manager, dissuaded the
Council to choose the name
"Dukes" in consideration of the
legal implications.
"Each of our jokes costs us a
few hundred dollars," said Redden.

The restaurant business for many is an expensive
lesson in risk management. Not so for Bud Kanke.
In W71. with a $900 savings balance. Bud and several
partners gave Vancouver diners the city's first upmarket
seafood experience. The Cannery.
Mulvaney's followed in 1975. Seafood with a dash
of Southern spice. Viva in 1979. A classic supper club. In
1984, The Ninth Ave. Fishmarket. Then Joe Fortes, in
1985. Seafood downtown style.
The menu grows. And now Kanke Seafood Restaurant Ltd., with some 1500 employees, reels in annual
sales of nearly $10 million.
Along the way, Bud Kanke has earned
the deserved reputation of a man with the skilis
to transform the most modest opportunities into
prize catches.
He credits his CA for providing him the base to
develop his entrepreneurial strengths. "It gives me discipline ... going by instinct is one thing, but there's merit
