local pharmacist is hoping her professional body will reverse course on a provincial plan to expand the role of technicians in B.C. pharmacies. Bev Harris, a longtime Coquitlam resident and antismoking advocate, has found herself in the midst of provincial debate on the role of pharmacists and pharmacy techs that will culminate next week. The College of Pharmacists of British Columbia drafted bylaw revisions that would allow for pharmacy technicians to be included in its membership, and the college board voted in June to move ahead with its plan to regulate pharmacy technicians. Harris is a board member who opposed the changes and helped circulate a petition that received more than 500 signatures from pharmacists across the province who were concerned enough about the changes to demand their professional college hold a special Paul vanPeenen/NOW meeting on the subject. “The main issue is really safe- Bev Harris fears pharmacies could view the chance to have pharmacy techs fill prescriptions as a cost-saving move. ty.

New Terry Fox Run in Mundy Park

Coquitlam residents have participated in Terry Fox runs in Port Coquitlam and Port Moody for years, but now, they have one in their own community — in Mundy Park. On Monday, the PoCobased Terry Fox Foundation announced that a Terry Fox run will take place in Mundy Park this September. “The foundation is so excited to have a run take place in Coquitlam this year,” Donna White, provincial director for the foundation’s BC/Yukon division, said in a press release. “We are always honoured when new communities come on board and host their own event, and we are thrilled

to have it in addition to the Hometown Port Coquitlam and Port Moody events happening in the Tri-Cities this year.” Local resident Donna Louie has volunteered to organize the event. “We really could not have asked for a better person to organize the first-ever run in Coquitlam,” said Clare Adams, fundraising and administrative co-ordinator for the foundation and a columnist for The NOW. “Donna’s enthusiasm and passion for Terry’s message is infectious and I don’t doubt she’ll make this a great success, but we do still need to

build an organizing committee and are currently looking for volunteers to help out with all aspects of the run.” Louie is also excited about her new volunteer position. “I am so honoured to be organizing the first ever Terry Fox Run in Coquitlam,” she said. “To me, Terry Fox is a real-life superhero. Although he may not look the part — his prosthetic leg and worn-out runners being a hard comparison to the shiny tights and capes worn by his fictitious counterparts — his compassion for others and the incredible difference he has made, not only in cancer

Cost concerns stall plan to eliminate red tape John Kurucz jkurucz@thenownews.com Coquitlam Coun. Linda Reimer’s move to set up a commission to eliminate red tape at City Hall has been put on the back burner. Council voted Monday to refer Reimer’s notice of motion to a future strategic priorities administration and protective services committee meeting, due to concerns over staff duplication and costs. “We are going to have some serious budget problems this year — we need to know how much this is going to cost,” said Coun. Mae Reid, adding, “To bring on something that’s this comprehensive at this time, I think it’s a little too much to ask of staff.” Reimer modelled her notice of motion after a simi-

Linda Reimer lar initiative undertaken in Winnipeg in 2004, a move costing that city $95,000. That commission established 29 recommendations to streamline processes in the Manitoba capital, including changing certain bylaws, making City Hall more accessible and giving bureaucrats more

leeway in procurement. “Although I acknowledge we need bylaws to protect health and safety, I think that too much regulation is harmful,” Reimer said. “The reduction of red tape should be an important component of our economic development strategy. We’re a growing community and we should streamline now before it becomes too difficult.” But according to city manager Peter Steblin, the city is already in the process of reviewing a number of its policies in the areas of customer service, development applications and industrial land uses, among others. That fact, coupled with the unknown costs associated with a Coquitlam commission, left some councillors suggesting that the commission would be too taxing on

staff time and an unnecessary burden on limited city resources. “I, too, am concerned that there’s a lot of other stuff happening in the community and a lot of other budget pressures and priorities,” said Coun. Selina Robinson. In terms of the makeup of the proposed committee, Reimer had suggested the inclusion of various residents’ associations, investors, major business owners, volunteers, city staff and those working in the non-profit sector. That type of consortium didn’t sit well with Coun. Lou Sekora, who suggested that various parties on the proposed commission could act more out of self interest than anything else. “This looks like a piggyback for a little publicity stunt,” he said.

Don’t get lax about security during the heat, police warn Police are warning residents to lock it or lose it. Coquitlam RCMP is warning that, as temperatures climb, people become more lax when it comes to securing windows and doors — but they should be making sure that the cool breeze is the only thing getting in. “Every summer we notice an increase in crimes of opportunity, and this season won’t be any different. Open windows and doors, whether it is your home or your vehicle, are basically an invitation for thieves to help themselves, and they will,” RCMP Cpl. Bert Paquet said. “Simple steps can be taken to ensure your valuables are kept safe and out of sight, whether you are gone for a few minutes or holidaying for days or weeks.” Residents should lock the doors and windows of their homes and vehicles, even if they are going out for only a few minutes, police say, and always arm alarm systems. Do not leave garage doors open, and store ladders in the garage or shed and ensure that sheds and backyard storage areas are secured. Storing valuables out of sight or in

secure locations like a safety deposit box or home safe will take away visible enticements for thieves to break in. If people are going away on vacation, they should ask trusted neighbours to use their garbage cans and

driveway. A holiday checklist should also include discontinuing mail and newspaper deliveries, adjusting the telephone ring to its lowest volume or off, installing motion sensor lights and setting timers on lights and radios.

You & The Law “CRUMBLING SKULL” REDUCES DAMAGES BTM LAWYERS LLP

By Janice Mucalov, LL.B.

LAWYERS & TRADEMARK AGENTS

Bawn B. hiked and took long walks with her dog before she was hit in a car crash (the defendant went through a red light and struck her right front fender). After the accident, she suffered ongoing back pain, especially when sitting for a long time, walking up stairs and going on longer walks. She moved to a smaller acreage and needed help with chores. It turned out that Bawn had degenerative arthritis before the accident (even though she had no symptoms), which the accident hastened and aggravated. However, even without the accident, the arthritis would most likely have started to soon cause her pain and stiffness anyway. Is the defendant (and ICBC) still responsible for her injuries? If you have a pre-existing medical condition, BC courts look at two different legal principles to determine how damages should be assessed.

hair styling by a Master Stylist

said that at the very least, city staff should use the list as a guideline. “We have to be careful this year on expenditures,” Stewart cautioned.

In a “thin skull” situation, the pre-existing condition makes you more susceptible to injury, but if you weren’t involved in the accident, it would not flare up and cause symptoms. Here, the defendant must take you as they find you. If you have a thinner skull than average (and the average skull would not have cracked in the accident), so be it – the defendant must still compensate you for all your losses flowing from your fractured skull. On the other hand, in a “crumbling skull” situation, the defendant isn’t responsible for all your post-accident symptoms. If you have a pre-existing arthritic condition which is aggravated by the accident, and ICBC proves that you likely would suffer arthritis symptoms in future, ICBC isn’t liable for all your losses. The idea is that the law aims to put you back in the same position you were in before the accident (in so far as money can do that) – but not to put you in a better position. Typically, the court deducts a percentage off the total damages to reflect the “contingency” (probability) that the pain and limited movement would show up regardless of the accident.

deduction was appropriate because her degenerative condition was “severe.” Damages for her pain and suffering, which were assessed at $55,000, were reduced by 25%; her total compensation amounted to some $93,000. With Cheri-Lynne G., however, the BC Supreme Court deducted only 10%. Hit head-on by a street sweeper, she suffered injuries to her ribs and left shoulder plus a sprain to her neck and back. At the time, she was a skating instructor. Before the accident, she had mild degeneration in her cervical spine that caused her to miss some work. After the accident, she also hurt her knee rollerblading and took three months off work. Soon after returning to work, she found a new administrative position because she couldn’t do her job as a skating instructor as well as before. The court concluded that Cheri-Lynne’s duties as a skating instructor were aggravated by the injuries she received in the car crash. But, the court said, there was also a “real and significant chance that the plaintiff’s pre-existing injuries and the injury suffered after the accident would have shortened the plaintiff’s career as a skating instructor, regardless of the injuries from the accident.” Damages for her pain and suffering were assessed at $67,500 ($75,000 minus 10%); her total award was just under $100,000. If you’re injured in a car crash or other accident, consult your lawyer, even if you were bothered by a painful pre-existing condition.

Opinion

We need added population

Re: “Only immigrants with job offers should be allowed in,” letter to the editor, Friday, July 2. If Ms. Thomason has an issue with the commitment Canada shares with other developed countries, perhaps she should read the 1951 UN Convention that Canada signed along with those other countries, and check out the 1967 protocol. We take in a fair and equitable number To The of refugees, as do all the countries that signed the convention agreement. I can’t imagine why anyone would need to declare refugee status if they had a safe job environment in the country they were fleeing, particularly with highly qualified trained professionals, who are a large portion of the refugees who enter our borders. As our national birth rate drops off we need the added increase in population to support a thriving economy, and I have not met any legitimate immigrants who haven’t been very appreciative of our support. They are amongst the hardest working of our employed, and our protectionist professional groups

make it extremely difficult for well-educated refugees to take up their chosen profession, which at times is a major loss to our society. Get the local professional organizations to support some method of integrating the doctors, just as an example, into our badly needed health-care system, and we will benefit highly from those refugees that are having to take menial jobs in our Editor country. Canada has no choice in regard to taking refugees, who are always very grateful, and it is our system that is so flawed we can’t make use of their skills. Ms. Thomason should also understand that “family unification” immigration procedures are a totally different matter and require that the family can support their relatives before they are approved for immigration. Granted, as in the rest of our society, there are a few who feel they don’t have to follow the rules, but they are the exception. Pat Creighton Port Moody

Our View

Many ‘accidents’ are preventable

B

each towels usually feature colourful patterns that reinforce our idea of being near the ocean as time spent being free, on vacation, without a care in the world. But the beach towels a non-profit group is leaving at Vancouver’s Kits Beach are anything but warm and fuzzy. Their fabric may be soft, but their message is hard-hitting. Emblazoned across each towel is the slogan “You’re probably not expecting to drown today.” We hope the message doesn’t put a damper on anyone’s trip to the beach, now that July’s hot, sunny weather is finally here. If it helps prevent just one drowning or other water-related fatality, however, the message will be worth the minor stress it may cause beach goers. Preventable, the organization leaving the towels on the beach, claims about 60 people a year die in B.C. from drowning — half of them children and youth. One almost died Wednesday in Surrey, a two-year-old girl who was found floating face down in a backyard pool. A family friend who heard the girl’s mother scream, however, was able to resuscitate the child using CPR skills he learned 26 years ago. Without his intervention, the girl may not have survived. With last weekend’s headlines including a fatal crash involving a houseboat and a speed boat on Shuswap Lake, and a string of drownings in Ontario, the message of safety on the water obviously needs to be heard. Preventable’s approach is blunt, but so are the Mothers Against Drunk Driving and Drinking Driving Counterattack ads we see on TV each Christmas. They’re unpleasant to watch, but surely save lives by reminding people to think about safety and how their actions can impact others. For years, we’ve used the term “accident” to refer to car crashes, drownings and other incidents that cause people to die. Preventable reminds us that many so-called accidents didn’t need to happen, and that the best time to think about consequences is before taking action, not after. With that in mind, enjoy your time at the beach, but don’t forget to pack your common sense.

individuals and $1,452 for families. At this rate, the health tax will double in nine years. The government claims families will be better off with the HST because prices will go down over time — oh, except when government is doing the pricing. One example is the PST on liquor, which will fall from 10 to seven per cent under harmonization. Don’t raise your glass in celebration too soon folks, because the government will increase the wholesale markup on alcohol to keep its tax grab the same. The government’s claim that people will be better off with the HST is difficult to square in the face of these other tax hikes. To ensure families are better off, government must reduce the total family tax burden — sly tricks won’t do. The government must eliminate additional taxes like the carbon tax and the health tax, and reduce the burden of the HST by reducing the harmonized rate from 12 to 10 per cent. The possibilities for protecting families from the tax shift are endless, unlike people’s patience with government’s tax sleight of hand.

Story on positive thinking a downer

Seeing as most of the village was built on a flood plain, you have the unique ability to either use a car or canoe when using the underground parking at SilverCity theatres. Lucille Starr Drive is not only a nice cross street, it is also a salmon spawning habitat, maybe the only road in the world to be deemed such. All sarcasm aside, one would be hard-pressed to find anything French about the village other than its name and some of the street signs. And development has taken precedence over heritage. Editor I despair the thought of what the village will look like in another 10 to 15 years. Neil Swanson Coquitlam

It is also a village that has become extremely adaptable to the changing times. I take my out-oftown visitors on a cultural tour along Brunette Avenue, pointing out the main heritage buildings and sites — Mackin House Museum, the 7-Eleven (circa 1980), the Hells Angels clubhouse, the boarded-up and burned-out shells of houses, the several empty and overgrown lots. I like to point out to them that Brunette Avenue is the only road in the Lower Mainland that is dug up and repaved every two years whether it needs to be To The or not. The crowning jewel is Mackin Park, located in the heart of the village. At one time it was an eyesore due to an overabundance of trees, flowering bushes and large expanses of grassy fields. There are a few trees left, but thankfully the expansion of King Edward Avenue will have the desired effect of getting rid of a great many of them. Mackin Park is also home to the Coquitlam Little League Baseball Mackin Yards, which is one of the finest ball fields in the Lower Mainland. The aforementioned King Edward Avenue has led to some unique changes to the Little League games. A pedestrian overpass is being built from third base to home plate. If they want to steal third base from second, they can either take the bus or a cab.

Re: “Students study how to be happy,” Friday, July 2. I’m deeply disappointed in the staff at Mary Hill Elementary adopting Covey’s principles into the curriculum. The damaging effects of applying these principles to psychological well-being later in life are well-documented in the scientific literature. We need to foster rational and critical thinking skills necessary for success in today’s world; not promote jargon-laden, feel-good drivel designed to fill the coffers of unscrupulous hucksters. Perhaps the middle schools could incorporate Barbara Ehrenreich’s book, Bright-sided: How the Relentless Promotion of Positive Thinking Has Undermined America, to dismantle the damage done by this absurd approach to education.

Development trampling heritage in Maillardville Having moved to Maillardville over 15 years ago, I have become acutely aware of its cultural and historical heritage. There are some unique and intrinsic values to this village that many people are not fully aware and/or appreciative of.

studies from countless independent scientists around the globe. Everywhere there are open-net salmon farms, wild salmon and trout struggle through viral, bacterial and parasitic outbreaks propagated by industry; it’s that simple. The solution to the problem is in closed containment, which will separate the large, sedentary farm fish populations, their waste and their disease, from the open ocean. This technology has been available for years and has proven successful to many small operators along the coast and elsewhere. What’s more is that the jobs in this industry are not lost, but moved onto land where they don’t affect the jobs of countless others who depend on wild salmon. Graham Girard Coquitlam

Fish farms a hazard

HST good for B.C.

Re: “Research on fish farms is not light years away,” letter to the editor, Friday, June 18. Misguided and uneducated comments like this do little but muddy the waters in a complicated issue. Salmon farming using antiquated open-net technology has been shown worldwide to cause significant adverse impacts on wild fish populations. We’re not talking about one rogue scientist from B.C.’s wilderness (who just happened to be presented an honourary doctorate from SFU for her work on the subject), but decades of peer-reviewed research and

In a competitive global marketplace, the HST will create direct and indirect cost savings for British Columbia business operators. These savings will allow business operators to drop their prices and that will enhance their ability to gain a market share from their competitors in Alberta and the U.S. The savings from the HST will also allow British Columbia businesses to invest in new equipment to grow their businesses, hire more British Columbians and become more productive.

Wesbild reaffirms support for SHARE

Wesbild Holdings has rededicated its building on Clarke Street in Port Moody to the SHARE Family & Community Services Society. The 12,000-square-foot building was originally dedicated five years ago after Wesbild bought the former industrial building and renovated it to suit SHARE’s needs, according to a press release. “As an organization with a number of staff that live and work in the Tri-Cities, we are delighted to be able to give back through SHARE,” said Kevin Layden, Wesbild’s president and CEO. The building is now home to SHARE’s food bank, family resource centre, counselling and community development services.

ive cents per game. That was the wage Brian Madaski’s parents paid him to set pins at the family bowling alley in the 1960s. Today, Madaski owns Port Coquitlam Bowl, which celebrated its 60th birthday in June. Built in 1950 by the Beattie and Froland families, the McAllister Avenue alley has been a mainstay in the PoCo community for decades. In 1959, Madaski’s parents and grandmother bought the six-lane business and made it their own. The family added eight more lanes in the 1960s. And to the relief of young Madaski, they also installed automatic pin setting. “Memories of setting the pins aren’t necessarily good memories. That was a difficult job. It was scary because some of those guys throw very, very hard so the pins are flying around. You’d get hit by a pin sometimes. It toughens you up,” said Madaski, who did the manual job for nearly 10 years. “And at one time in the late ’50s and early ’60s, almost every boy in town was a pinsetter, a pin boy. That’s how they made their money. That was a big deal. We had dozens and dozens of guys set pins because you needed that many. We still have staff here that used to set pins, too.” A few decades later, the family con-

business. Like Madaski, McPhee emphasizes how the warm family atmosphere sets the tone for bowlers of all ages and abilities. As one example, she said a group of bowlers has hosted their own annual match for nearly 50 years, since they never won at other tournaments. They continue to meet each May, and now their children and grandchildren are involved. The losers of the tourney become beer openers for the next year. In another specialty event, McPhee worked with Madaski to launch a three-day bowling clinic for autistic teenage boys last year. “It was just the most amazing experience. We were all in tears. These kids wanted it so bad. They had never had the chance to be in a group sport that they could be accepted as an equal,” she said. “Eight of those boys joined our league this year. They’re all autistic, and we were able to integrate them right into the league … Some of the mothers have come and said these kids’ lives have been opened up. They’re different people now. From a coaching perspective, those are amazing things.” It’s connections like these that keep McPhee driving to PoCo Bowl from her Langley home five times per week. “It’s a community. That’s basically what it amounts to. It becomes part and parcel.”

A quick-growing ground cover may not make you happy in the long run. All ground covers are invasive, and the quick-growing ones need extra vigilance to stop them infiltrating into your garden beds. One of the better lawn alternatives is white clover. It’s amenable to most soils, is drought-tolerant and its deep, tough roots are unappetizing to chafer larvae. It can go for weeks without mowing and is fairly resilient to foot traffic (though not as durable as grass). As well, white-flowered clover is a sun-loving legume that actually improves the soil by fixing nitrogen at its roots. The flowers attract honey bees and native bees to your garden, where they’ll hang around and pollinate flowers and fruit. The biggest negative is that it’s usually grown from seed. This means it will take a few

Buying cherries? Look for ripe ones with the stem on

S

ummer is a wonderful time of year when it comes to the abundance of fresh fruit that is available, and cherries are one of my utmost favourites. I believe that we all have some fond memory from our childhood of eating cherries in the hot summer sun, either raw and fresh by themselves or in a favourite family dessert. The part of the world where cherries originated is very difficult to pinpoint, as they have supposedly been in existence since prehistoric times. Today, however, cherries are found all over the world. Birds love cherries, so it is believed that, due to their

migration habits, they contributed most to the spread of cherry trees. We tend to see and consume only one or two varieties of sweet cherries that are sold in our markets and roadside stands. However, there are many different ones that are cultivated around the world. Cherries are divided into two classifications: sweet and sour. There are more than 500 varieties of sweet cherries and more than 250 varieties of sour cherries worldwide. Three examples of sweet cherries that would be the most familiar to us would be Gean,

The ancient Chinese technique of acupuncture has been successful in China for over 2,000 years. Jane Wong has over 34 years experience as an acupuncturist. Two of Jane’s patients attest to the effectiveness of acupuncture. 74-year old Edna has been smoking for 61 years. “I’ve been smoking since I was 13 years old, often two packs a day. After just three acupuncture treatments I’ve quit.” P. Chew, 88 years old was having Sciatica. He could walk, stand up, and sleep alright, but could not sit, if he did - the unbearable pain would almost paralyze him. He was given pain drugs, but after taking them a few times he decided to stop and 34 Years Experience came to me. Now, he is free from the problem and lives happily.

the refrigerator. Store them in a container or bag away from strong-smelling foods, as cherries will tend to easily absorb odours, which will intensely affect their flavour. Cherries can be frozen whole or pitted, but freezing will affect their flavour, quality and firmness. Frozen cherries are best used for cooking. Pitting cherries can be done with either a knife, by cutting them in half, or with a cherry/ olive pitter. These manual mechanical devices look almost like a

the sauce thickens — more cherry liqueur can be added at this point — and then served over ice cream or cake. One of my favourite childhood recipes is one that my mother made for our family every cherry season. She calls it “cherry soup.” It consists of whole cherries cooked in a sweet red cherry broth with curds made out of flour. It may sound odd, but is very delicious and can be served either hot or chilled. Dear Chef Dez: “I just recently bought a whole case of cherries because they were on sale for a great price. What are some ideas that I can do with them other than making jam?” Ron S. Abbotsford Dear Ron: There are many great ways to serve cherries. They add a great contrasting colour and flavour to green salads, and are also delicious in custards, sorbets, ice creams, fruit salads and pies. Black forest cake is another famous dessert with cherries. You can also try making cherry wine or macerating them in vodka to make your own cherry liqueur. Try searching the Internet or the library, and I am sure you will come up with many great recipes for serving and preserving cherries. • Chef Dez is a food columnist, culinary instructor and cooking show performer.

DIVERSIFYING YOUR INVESTMENTS

Over time, investors have come to recognize that the one constant in the capital markets is change. Just as quickly as markets can go up, they can come down. During periods of volatility, it is tempting to stray from a long-term investment plan and react to current market conditions. With this in mind, here are five principles of investing that address the maxim, “constant change is stability”. By considering each of these principles when you develop your investment plan, you can help to ensure that your portfolio will be well positioned to manage whatever the future brings. Principle 1 A strategic investment plan with reasonable return assumptions is critical to ensure that your assets are working to achieve your investment goals. Principle 2 A well-designed asset mix strategy will allow you to manage risk intelligently – rather than to avoid it at all costs. Principle 3 Diversification within asset classes reduces securityspecific risk. Principle 4 Timing the market is not as important as time in the market. Principle 5 There are tremendous investment opportunities around the world that can provide powerful diversification benefits to your portfolio. For investment advice that you can count on, call today to see if your current savings strategy will allow you to retire in comfort…

Market features salmon barbecue There’s something fishy about one of the Coquitlam Farmers Market’s most popular annual events. The society is teaming up with Coquitlam Fire and Rescue to hold another salmon and hamburger barbecue on Sunday, July 11. Between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m., firefighters will grill up some tasty goods during the weekly farmers market at Dogwood Pavilion. “This is one of the best events of the season,” Tabitha McLoughlin, market executive director, said. “It is a great way to showcase the fresh taste of local food, as almost everything at the barbecue is from our vendors.

Highlighting ALL the area has to offer

Incredibly, people having been asking about this barbecue since we opened in May.” Fresh off the Boat is supplying the salmon and Gesundheit Bakery will provide Germanstyle rolls — which are rumoured to go quickly. The market will be full of activities and games for the kids, including salmon races, a fishing pond, veggie bowling and a fire brigade. Live music will also be performed. The market is located at the Dogwood Pavilion parking lot at 624 Poirier St. Parking is free and available at the recreation centre and behind Centennial Secondary.

Mazda tops in two-seater realm David Chao editorial@thenownews.com

n case you haven’t noticed, we’re running low on affordable, two-seat convertibles. Honda retired the aging S2000 last fall, and the disappointing Chrysler Crossfire, Pontiac Solstice and Saturn Skye roadsters are long gone. In the $30,000 range, there’s the Ford Mustang, Mini Cooper, Mitsubishi Eclipse Spyder and Volkswagen’s Eos and New Beetle convertibles, all of which are four-seat vehicles. If you want a two-seater there’s the BMW Z4, Infiniti G37, Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class, Nissan 370Z and Porsche Boxster convertibles — but

none of those can be considered affordable. So it’s a very good thing that we have the Mazda MX-5. Now in its 21st year and third generation, the MX-5 is the best-selling roadster in history, with well over one million units produced since 1989. It’s the benchmark for a fun-todrive roadster — the aforementioned Chrysler and GM products all fell short when held up next to it — and is capable of taking on moreexpensive counterparts at a fraction of their prices. There are, in short, few cars as satisfying to own and drive as an MX-5 — and there’s an excellent reason for that. Mazda is considered by many to be the

I was privileged to be among 42 Canadians from the Stephen Lewis Foundation’s Grandmothers to Grandmothers Campaign who were there to observe and listen. The grandmothers told us of their struggles to raise enough money to pay school fees and provide uniforms for their grandchildren. Winter was approaching and many of the children needed new shoes for school. Some of the children are HIVpositive and need medicine in combination with consistent good nutrition. The stigma attached to declaring HIV-positive status is still so strong that families risk the threat of violence when they disclose. Fear keeps many from getting tested. Our discussions were serious, and rivers of tears were shed. We also laughed, sang and danced, and I will be forever moved by the affection and generosity that enveloped us. For three days we ate together, attended workshops together and strengthened our bonds during a march of more than 1,000 grandmothers throughout Manzini’s streets. At the event’s opening ceremony, we were treated to cultural performances by dynamic young Swaziland singers, drummers and dancers. The Queen Mother of Swaziland, who presided over the evening, defied the concerns of her security contingent and spontaneously joined a crowd of dancing grandmothers. What came from this gathering is the Manzini Statement, in which African grandmothers use the strength of their collective voice to call upon governments in all of Africa to change their policies. They demand their rights before the law, safety, security and an end to violence against them and their grandchildren. They demand economic independence so that they have the necessary resources to build their own capacity to raise healthy families in the midst of the AIDS pandemic. Canadian grandmothers promised to return home and con-

world, some 14 million children are orphaned by AIDS. Many are living in child-headed households. The lucky ones have grandmothers who love them and community programs to support them. Access to education, healthy food, clean water and medical care is difficult, if not impossible. We can’t help but marvel at our good fortune and empathize with the challenges faced in Africa. We believe every child deserves a healthy, happy future. Organized and hosted by Swaziland Positive Living (SWAPOL), one of the continent’s leading AIDS advocacy and support organizations, the event’s weighty discussions, joyous celebration and bold outcome statement reflected the momentum and strength of the international grandmothers’ movement just four years after it began on the eve of the XVI International AIDS Conference in Toronto in August 2006. The Grandmothers to Grandmothers Campaign has more than 220 grandmothers’ groups across Canada, and has raised more than $9 million in four years for grassroots projects in 15 sub-Saharan countries. Our mandate is to listen to African grandmothers, respect their expertise and amplify their voices in order to promote authentic and substantive responses to the pandemic in Africa. Those who attended the gathering represented more than 5,000 Canadian women. We returned with a heightened sense of responsibility to help build solidarity among African and Canadian grandmothers and to sustain the vital work of turning the tide of AIDS in Africa. We welcome new members and you don’t have to be a grandmother to join. For more information about the Grandmothers to Grandmothers Campaign, please go online to www.stephenlewisfoundation.org.

Trip to Prague, Czech Republic, reveals rapid pace of change Colleen Friesen travelwriterstales.com “You probably believe that you will always live within a democracy,” Lada Ptacek says before pausing, his index finger pushing at the bridge of his glasses. “I am here to tell you that you cannot assume this. Systems change. Regimes come. There is no guarantee of how it will be.” His English is studied, as he tries to convey his truth to our group of American, Canadian and New Zealander cyclists. At 42, he is living proof that regimes change. He was 22 years old when he was beaten for his part in the Czech Republic’s 1989 Velvet Revolution. Communism died soon after. My husband and I are in Prague. It has only been a few days since we left Lada, after a week-long bicycle tour through the pastoral southern states of the Czech Republic. Moravia and Bohemia were full of calm country roads, quiet cities and very little traffic. I can still see Lada, standing in front of the rusty fence of the Iron Curtain, helping us imagine growing up within a barbed-wire border. His words, and those images of small towns, keep coming back to me as we try to navigate through the swirl of Prague. Change is not a strong enough word for  CONTINUED ON PAGE 22, see EDGY.

Edgy Buddha Bar Hotel a symbol of the new Prague  CONTINUED FROM PAGE 21.

what has happened to this city in the 20 years since commercialism took over. The Charles Bridge, where army boots once marched, is now a throbbing mass of visitors and trinket stands. Puppets spill off kiosks and retail storefronts; a Prague art form that has flourished since the 18th century. T-shirt shops, Bohemian crystal shops — including the world-famous Swarovski — tempt tourists with their sparkles. If capitalism is the new religion, our home for the next four nights at the uber-hip Buddha Bar Hotel would make a great church. Its brochure proclaims that it is “not just another hotel. It’s a lifestyle.” Entering the hotel feels like stepping into my very own life-sized jewelry box of intense red velvets, Asian silk brocades and Warholinspired Buddhas. The delicate scent of incense is everywhere. That night we dine in the Buddha Bar Restaurant. It is dark and glows with crimson crystal chandeliers. Selections of tiger shrimp in a heady mixture of coconut and basil, five-spice barbecued chicken and Chinese spoons filled with a tart and spicy tuna tartar are delivered — each paired with a glass of France’s finest: Chablis, Cotes du Rhone, Sauvignon Blanc or Bordeaux. The dinner is a crisp departure from the usual Czech fare of pork, potatoes and pivo (beer). A Buddha statue dominates one wall, his head at the mezzanine level of the open bar that looks down into the dining room. He sits, implacable and silent, in front of a wall studded with rows of orchids — 176 orchids, in fact. Diners from Norway, Kuwait and Russia eat and drink and spend. The Buddha Bar is a lifestyle. And with rooms ranging from 418 to

2,012 Euros, it’s most assuredly a lifestyle for the rich. The concept and the vibe began in 1995 in Paris. Bars in Beirut, Abu Dhabi, Beijing, Jakarata and Cairo are only a few of the locations where the stylish international crowd can groove to the now-famous sound tracks. But Prague is the first place where the concept has been extended from the bar/restaurant scene into the hotel business. No details have been missed, including the remote-controlled bidet, the electronic curtains and endless selections of edgy, atmospheric music to choose from. Prague Castle, representing a very different economic time and sensibility, looms over the city from its hill across the Vltava River. Below, the Little Quarter, a neighbourhood of baroque architecture, speaks of former riches. Renaissance, Art Nouveau, cubist and neoclassical buildings jumble together throughout the city. Ugly, box-like towers are inserted here and there, a reminder of the esthetic insensibilities of the communists. In the Jewish quarter, synagogues and museums are testament to the death of so many Jews. Like the Buddha, the buildings remain as stoic witnesses to the waves of occupation, terrorism, domination and democracy. Tourists rush about, shopping and dining and believing that this, this is the way it is. But Lada and his fellow citizens keep a watchful eye. This is only how it is right now.

Score Card

Express add to defensive depth in latest deal Between a wedding in Hawaii and a honeymoon in New York, Coquitlam Express coach and director of hockey operations Jon Calvano found time to address the club’s shallow blueline ranks. Calvano acquired the rights to 19-year-old Matt Hutchinson, a defenceman from North Vancouver, from the Manitoba junior A league’s OCN Blizzard in a cash deal. “Matty played major midget for me as a 16-year-old two years ago, and he was a part of a pretty good hockey team,” Calvano said. “When he became available on the wire, we moved fairly quickly.” Hutchinson’s stock and trade is sound defence, which is an area that is getting a serious rebuild under first-year coach Calvano. The Express have two returnees slated on the backline, and have been searching hard for blueline talent. He began last season in Port Alberni but was released after one month. Hutchinson was then picked up by Quesnel and dealt to Manitoba, where he posted a goal and three assists in 16 games. He’ll join recent signees Mark Begert and Justin Elliott and veterans James Bettauer and David Dotan at next month’s training camp. The hunt will continue, Calvano noted, as the club is still looking for someone who can fill the void left when 19-year-old Simon Denis bolted for the U.S. Hockey League last month. Denis racked up six goals and 23 assists last season as quarterback of the powerplay. That kind of puck-savvy blueliner is difficult to pry away from other teams, Calvano said. “Obviously, filling Simon’s spot is going to take some work, and every team is looking for that kind of defenceman. That was a big hit for us but we’re moving on, bringing in players and continuing to look.” Hutchinson won’t be expected to anchor the powerplay, but he brings solid skills and a 6’1, 195-pound frame that will fit nicely as the club’s fifth or sixth blueliner, general manager Darcy Rota said. “He’s a defensive guy who plays with some toughness in his game. He’s got some grit, so we look upon him as a top-six guy,” said Rota. Calvano said he hopes to confirm Western Hockey League veteran Riley McIntosh’s commitment to the club in the coming weeks. “Everyday we’re calling and still trying to acquire and attract kids who can help and improve our hockey club,” the coach said.

Playoffs present fresh target for jr. Adanacs Dan Olson sports@thenownews.com They weren’t going through the motions, but the Coquitlam Adanacs and New Westminster Salmonbellies knew Wednesday’s B.C. Junior A Lacrosse League regular season finale had all the importance of a prom rehearsal. When the smoke cleared, the Adanacs won 12-7 and finished with a 19-1-1 record, five points better than the Bellies. The squad had clinched Coquitlam’s third consecutive regular season league title on Tuesday, downing Nanaimo 15-7. “I thought our guys were really solid, coming off a second game in as many nights and came out hard,” Adanacs coach Curt Malawsky said. “New West is a great team and they play us tough every time.” Despite the absence of snipers Mark Matthews, Brandon Bertoia, Robert Church and defensive leader Matt Beers, the Adanacs staked out an early 3-0 lead and continued to build on it. They collected six evenstrength tallies in the second period and limited the Bellies’ full roster to just three after 40 minutes. Ben McIntosh scored three of his four goals in the middle frame, while Matthew Dinsdale finished with three goals and three assists. Recent acquisition Riley Loewen chipped in a pair, while Travis Cornwall, Simon Giourmetakis and Kevin Schoemaker tallied singles. Although he would have liked to see a different result in the third, where New West outscored Coquitlam 4-2, Malawsky said the final score was satisfying. “We’re getting better at minimizing the mistakes we made earlier in the year. I thought the boys did a good job of moving the ball and limiting (New West’s) chances, for the most part.” Both Coquitlam and New West earn a bye into the second round, awaiting the winners from the Victoria-Nanaimo and DeltaBurnaby best-of-three series, which start this weekend. As host to the Minto Cup four-team national championships, the Adanacs also receive a guaranteed spot to the big tournament, which begins Aug. 21 at the Coquitlam Sports Centre. “I prided myself as a player in being a bigtime playoff player,” Malawsky said. “It’s a great achievement to have that (regular season) banner, but we built this team for the playoffs and the Minto Cup push. We’re all looking forward to playing playoff lacrosse... It’s going to take 26 guys working together to be successful.” ADANAC NOTES: Matthews, despite only playing in 10 games, finished eighth in league scoring with 35 goals and 31 assists. Dinsdale, with 25 goals and 37 assists, and Bertoia, who potted 25 goals and 35 helpers, finished in the top-15. Church picked up a hat trick in the league-title clinching win over Nanaimo, while newly acquired Riley Loewen chipped in two goals and three assists. Also tallying twice were Ben McIntosh and Jon Thomson.

Grace and poise lead rhythmic gymnast to B.C. gold Dan Olson sports@thenownews.com Mary Lei set her sights on a provincial medal, and grabbed it last month. The Port Moody rhythmic gymnast scored first place in rope, hoop and ribbon to capture the Level 6A division’s all-around title. A member of the Grace Rhythmic Gymnastics Club, Lei had only competed at the provincials in a duo event before, copping bronze two years ago. This time, the work she put in to reach her goal proved to be just right. “My goal going in was just to do my best, to perform my best for the judges and hope that my best was good enough,” Lei said. “I have always wanted to do individual routines but I wasn’t really ready.” The just-turned 17-year-old has been in the sport for about six years, but only focused on the individual side the past two. Her passion for the sport evolved through regular exposure to it through her family — and her own geniune interest. That her coach is a former Chinese national champion,

whose rivals included Canadian Olympic medalist Lori Fung, was a big plus. That her coach also happened to be her mother was an additional bonus. “She has always encouraged me on improving my quality, (and) the sport is about a quality performance,” the Port Moody Secondary IB student noted. “She gave me what I needed to work on and I did that.” A first-place result in each discipline was her aim, but it required a lot of attention and sacrifice, she said. “I worked really hard for it, I trained very fiercely and paid attention to my moves and had to work hard on making sure my moves matched my facial expressions. “It’s very much like dance, you have to look in control and have your expressions complement your artistry.” Her mother, Linda Wei, who opened Grace RGC six years ago, said her daughter’s decision to make a push to compete at the provincials was welcomed. “I was very, very nervous because as ( I am club) coach Mary has to coach herself,” Wei, who spent much of the competition judging other events, said. “I just tell her

Galaxy overwhelms opposition The Coquitlam Metro-Ford under-11 boys Galaxy went above and beyond their competition. The local soccer squad blitzed through the Baker Blast tournament in Bellingham last week, capping it with a 3-0 triumph over Mount Vernon in the final. Sparked by a well-rounded team effort in every game, the Galaxy got goals from Ethan Silver, Quintin Desaulniers and Niko Papakyriakopoulos, the last one on a penalty shot. In the semifinal, Coquitlam cruised past Peace Arch 7-0, with Daniel Volaric and Desaulniers tallying two goals apiece, with singles by Anthony Vega, Trevor Zanatta and Papakyriakopoulos. In the opening test, the Galaxy bested Mount Vernon 40. Netminder Trevor Schneider made a spectacular stop off a breakaway in the game’s early minutes to set the tone. Defenders Luke Benedet, Kevin Brazil, Nico Pace and Desaulniers stepped up to protect their turf the rest of the way.

what to do, do this, do that, and she has to do it on her own. As my daughter, she is lucky and unlucky.” The teenager counts herself more on the lucky side. “The sport is so beautiful, and through it I learned that quality is hard to achieve, but worth achieving,” Lei said. She was part of a large Grace contingent that competed in the Vancouver-hosted event, which saw a handful of other first-place showings. Irina Kouznetsova placed fourth all-around in level 3 novice, scoring bronze in free routine. Level 2 novice’s Amanda Lau finished second after posting first in rope and third in free. In level 2 prenovice, Kathrina Kouznetsova came in fifth, with a fifth-place showing in free. In group competiton, the level 2 novice hoop duo of Amanda Lau and Jueun Oh took top honours, as did bronze novice ball duo Erin Ashley and Kathrina Kouznetsova. The quartet of Sabring Chu, Margaret Ding Zhang, Anika Gong and Phoebe Yue won bronze novice ball four, and silver novice hoop pair Irina Kouznetsova and Rachel Skournik were victorious in their event. Rounding out the gold medal parade were silver junior hoop trio Alina

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Aries March 21 - April 19: The accent continues on hibernation, home, rest, security, kids, nature, gardening, domestic repairs and on ending stale or unworkable projects, relationships or situations. This week is a cakewalk compared to the last seven days. Almost everything flows smoothly, and the only possible contention arises Friday as you navigate an important relationship. One good thing about this day: you see clearly what you’re up against. Otherwise, Sunday’s great for domestic matters. A love affair is in the air Sunday-Tuesday. A career or work matter succeeds splendidly Tuesday-Thursday.

Cancer June 21-July 22: Your energy and charisma ride a beautiful wave. Take advantage, start important projects, see and impress people, ask favours, make your bid – climb to the top of the heap! Your recent mild money luck has ebbed but there will be lots of talk, activity around money. You’ve been in communication mode in your career; now to early August, a graciousness and affection joins in. It’s a perfect time to chat up a boss, confer with colleagues, etc. A favourite sibling might call. This entire week is easy, smooth, productive – except Friday (be diplomatic). Home, nature best Saturday.

Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: This easy, productive week features career, ambition, prestige, dealings with higher-ups or authority figures (especially Sunday). Remember, this zone needs selflessness, caution and good morals through next March. If you think, “I’ll get away with this” – don’t do it, for your own sake! That said, proceed. If you’re stymied, “default” to security, family property concerns. (A mild “destiny luck” aids you in these, early week.) Your hopes and popularity rise Monday/Tuesday – get out, accept happiness! Rest, contemplate, plan mid-week. Your energy surges Friday/Saturday – diplomacy!

Taurus April 20-May 20: This is an easy, friendly, travel-prone week, Taurus. A great time to meet, talk, tackle paperwork, upgrade or buy a computer or telephony system. Sunday might begin a new project in these areas. Be restful, domestic Monday/ Tuesday, repair the stairs, cook, garden, take charge of future security for yourself and/or the kids. Oddly, on your friendly day (Sunday) secrets, solitude and domesticity are favoured; yet on your “relax at home” days (Monday/Tuesday) a new love might begin. Expect complex but fruitful “combinations.” Romance, pleasure, “happy risks” arrive Wednesday/ Thursday.

Leo July 23-Aug. 22: Rest, lie low and study your progress, Leo – especially Sunday. Solitude is a blessing all week, it allows you the time to accomplish some important background tasks. Friday is the only “caution day” this week (be careful with your speech to others, and avoid legal, romantic, relationship and similar forays until early afternoon). So use this time to engage the government, institutions, head offices, to reconnect with your spiritual side, to research, and to plan future action. Educational, legal, cultural, money and work matters are favoured Monday to Thursday. Travel, read Saturday.

Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: A sweet, mellow week! You understand what puzzled you before. You feel compassionate, you sense why society works, and what life is. Gentle, passionate love is possible (only possible: big passion begins 2011 onward). Culture, social rites, education, publishing, international travel/ contacts, intellectual pursuits are favoured, especially Sunday. Chase career, prestige Monday/Tuesday. You feel upbeat, optimistic, popular and a bit flirtatious Wednesday/Thursday! Retreat, rest, contemplate and plan Friday/Saturday: an ambitious month starts soon. Caution, Friday to early p.m.

Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: Popularity, light romance, optimism, bright new horizons and urges about the future – these bless your days now. Sunday is significant – a new social (or organizational) contact, idea, or project might start. Your energy ebbs a bit Monday/Tuesday, so rest, enjoy a quiet breather. Contemplate and plan. Your energy and charisma surge upward Wednesday/Thursday – throw off your usual shyness, respond to someone’s “opening gesture,” seek friends, romance, love, intimacy, new financial horizons. You’re noticed! Take care with money, don’t risk it, Friday daytime. This eve and Saturday, chase it.

Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: Life’s mysteries and depths (sex, finance, mutual resources, loyalty/ betrayal, dreams, subconscious, critical health, commitments and consequences) – these remain front and centre, but not in any dire way. In fact, this is a week of success, smooth progress and gratifying results! So charge forward, invest, re-arrange debt, seek intimacy, grab funding, research, listen to your hunches. (Notice the phrase “mutual resources” – it means that whatever you do involves another in some way. E.g., an inheritance is “their money” until you get it.) Exercise caution Friday to mid-afternoon. You end happy!

Gemini May 21-June 20: The accent lies on money, earnings, buying, selling, memory, rote learning. Memorizing something, perhaps a big, complex thing, could aid you in future. This week flows smoothly. Sunday might trigger a new money project or idea. Travel, talk, errands fill a busy, happy Monday/ Tuesday. Something involving real estate, home, kids, finances, debt, security, investment or sex/pregnancy follows a “lucky road” – travel it. These matters are also blessed Wednesday/Thursday, but more on the home, “staying put” side. Romance, pleasure call Friday onward – wait until Friday eve, Saturday.

July 11 - 17 Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: Relationships remain important. A new one might begin Sunday. This is a great,harmonious week,perfect for mending fences and deepening happy links.A sweet nectar of understanding helps you see others’ positions. Monday/Tuesday bring depths, intimacy, financial commitments, investments, secrets. Bonds deepen (or break – unlikely). Gentle love flows Wednesday/Thursday. Success indicated in cultural, intellectual, international, legal zones. Be ambitious Friday/Saturday, but take some care Friday to about 2 p.m., when opposition or surprises could occur. All week, seal a deal! Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: Chores, chores, chores – get ’em done during this easy, productive week. It’s a splendid time to check your health, start exercise or health regimens, look for a new doctor, repair anything from stairs to computers, handle employment/ employee matters, hire service personnel, and/or buy tools and equipment, from a blender to a backhoe. Be a little wary in romance, career and health the first 14 hours of Friday. Otherwise, charge forth! Relationships are an opportunity Monday/Tuesday. Secrets, research, large money Wednesday/Thursday. Romantic notions, pleasure Friday/Saturday. Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: Chase romance, creative accomplishment, pleasure, beauty, sports and speculation. Your luck runs high during this smooth, easy week. Woo someone, especially Sunday and Wednesday/Thursday. Responses will be affectionate, gentle (even if you’re rejected). Wednesday/Thursday also feature opportunities, new horizons, the possibility of relocation, negotiation, agreements.Take care Friday to 2 p.m. – a financial, and/or an intimate opportunity appears, but it does not “fit” your future. After this, through Saturday, move a relationship deeper, research, or clinch a financial action. timstephens@shaw.ca • Reading: 416-686-5014
