Broadway revamp to cost $11.4 million Roadwork will soon begin to widen a strip of Broadway Street for the final phase of the Coast Meridian Overpass super-project. The $11.4-million reconstruction initiative will expand Broadway to five lanes over a 1.3-kilometre stretch between Kingsway Avenue and the Mary Hill Bypass. Construction will include dedicated full traffic signals and left-turn lanes at Langan, Cameron and Industrial avenues, along with two-way left-turn lanes for the remainder of Broadway. As well, the project will feature marked bicycle lanes in both directions and sidewalks on both sides. Port Coquitlam Mayor Greg Moore said Broadway reconstruction is the last piece of the overpass project, since Coast Meridian Road was widened to four lanes several years ago. “A few spots we’re still dealing with here and there. However, the Broadway side is a key component to the movement in our community,” Moore said. “This will also now complete the bike lane component that you see on the Coast Meridian Overpass and on Coast Meridian on the north side. This will now complete it on the south side, so you’ll have a nice cross-town route in that direction.” Council awarded two phases of the project to Pedre Contractors Ltd. on Monday night. The expected completion date is March 30, 2011. Provincial and federal governments will each contribute about $3.8 million towards the project through the Building Canada Fund. TransLink also committed to fund $733,000 from its 2009 major road network capital  CONT. ON PAGE 4, see POCO.

Construction starts on PoCo highrise Once-controversial project now has support of mayor, most city councillors Stories by Jennifer McFee jmcfee@thenownews.com The cityscape is about to change, with construction now officially underway on Port Coquitlam’s first residential highrise. The Shaughnessy on Lions Park launched Friday with a quiet groundbreaking ceremony for the Onni Group development at 2789 Shaughnessy St. Scheduled for completion in fall 2012, the 26storey building will contain 163 units, including three penthouse suites. The project will also feature four townhouses. Prices range between $244,900 and $701,900, and 65 units have already sold. Port Coquitlam Mayor Greg Moore donned a hard hat and picked up a shovel for Friday’s ceremony,

along with Couns. Darrell Penner, Michael Wright and Glenn Pollock. But Moore did not always approve of the project. When the proposal was before council in March 2008, Moore — then a councillor — opposed the development, along with Penner and Coun. Mike Forrest. The project passed with approval from the rest of the previous council — made up of current councillor Wright, former councillors Arlene Crowe and Mike Bowen, and former mayor Scott Young. Looking back on the vote, Moore said it’s important for today’s council to respect decisions made in the past. “A previous council made the decision for the project to go forward. As a current council, we need to respect that,” Moore said. “And further, we need to work with our develop-

ment community and our business community. Onni development is our biggest developer in town, and we need to show support and work with them.” Meanwhile, Penner said the newly opened Coast Meridian Overpass has eased traffic in the area, which was a major concern for both the public and council. “I supported the project as a concept. I believed this is a good spot for it, but the timing was wrong,” Penner said. “Now that the overpass is in, it’s much better timing.” Forrest could not be reached for comment. Couns. Sherry Carroll and Glenn Pollock both told The NOW the development was a decision made by the previous council.  CONTINUED ON PAGE 4, see ‘THAT AREA IS STILL.’

Unlike Oliver dam, which collapsed, experts say local structure is continuously monitored Simone Blais sblais@thenownews.com

T

ri-Cities residents can be forgiven if, after seeing images of the Oliver landslide, they nervously looked up Pipeline Road and wondered if all is well with the Coquitlam Dam. About 10 buildings were destroyed near Oliver in the B.C. Interior on June 13, when a 10-foot (three-metre) wall of mud and debris careened down Testalinden Creek. Provincial emergency and RCMP crews combed the area for injured or missing people, but neighbours and orchard workers were able to evacuate in time. Relief among neighbours quickly gave way to anger, though, as reports surfaced of hikers in the area who had informed officials a dam just upstream from the area appeared to be leaking — and no one had acted on the information.

the likelihood it will fail. “Dams close to a large population undergo a lot of scrutiny, a lot of care, maintenance and investigation, and a lot of that’s continuous.” Eberhardt said the Oliver landslide began with a small structure like a cattle-rearing pond built 80 years ago that could have largely been forgotten by people, save for hikers or maintenance workers. If something in the area had changed — the culvert was blocked or road construction changed the slope of the land, all during an unusually rainy season — the dam’s waters could have begun to spill over, triggering a slide. “With any earth dam, over-topping of the dam is a big concern,” Eberhardt said. “With a little dam structure like in Oliver, that’s something that can be easily missed unless someone is routinely checking on it and it probably has a low priority compared to other structures.” His experience with the province and Hydro, he added, shows that large budget infrastructure demands a great deal of attention. “These dams are major assets to the province and they have a lot of money being spent on them on an annual basis in terms of care and maintenance,” he said, “whereas in Oliver, that little dam probably was more or less forgotten to a certain degree, and any people who did recent construction along there are doing it on a much smaller scale and with a much more limited budget.” The Coquitlam Dam, however, is purposely fitted with spill gates to prevent overflowing. “The big earth dams … they’re all properly designed, and they’re all heavily scrutinized and closely watched,” Eberhardt said. “It’s very unlikely something would go on at the Coquitlam Dam without anyone noticing.” — with a file from Canwest News Service

program, and will consider additional funding under the same program for 2010 and 2011. The city will pay for the remainder of the project — about $3 million — through reserve funds and internal borrowing. According to a staff report, 10 projects previously approved for city funding will now be “unfunded” to ensure there’s enough money in reserve for the Broadway project, as well as the habitatcreation Pitt River intertidal project. Road rehabilitation is among the areas being cut, losing $500,000 from the 2010 maintenance budget. Coun. Michael Wright said the Broadway project points out the current cost of doing business in the city. “It’s an upgrade of an existing road, and with everything else included … we’re looking at the figure of over $11 million for 1.3 kilometres of road,” Wright said. “That is a staggering figure to me. That’s really staggering. And when people say, ‘Why are our taxes so high?’ this is one of the reasons.”

‘That area is still the worst traffic bottleneck in the city’  CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1.

Onni development vicepresident Beau Jarvis said traffic on Shaughnessy is an issue that has been addressed by the company. “It’s change. It’s the first highrise in Port Coquitlam, and I think by virtue of that, there was probably some hesitance,” Jarvis said. “But we worked with the community and I think we overcame a lot of the concerns in the community with respect to traffic, with respect to how we’re going to be a good neighbour to the park.”

But Coun. Brad West doesn’t support the project and opted not to attend the opening event. “For me, it really comes down to believing it’s not suitable for that area. I’ve believed that from Day 1. It really comes down to location, location, location.” West said. “And despite the improvement we’ve made with the Coast Meridian Overpass, that area is still the worst traffic bottleneck in the entire city. I don’t see how putting a 26storey residential tower in the middle of it is going to do anything but make it worse.”

In contrast, Wright doesn’t believe traffic will be a problem since residents will likely come and go from the building at different times. “I think that a lot of the controversy was fear of the unknown, change … I agree that it’s a big change for a city of this size to see something this tall in this location; however, I think that over time, there will be other towers within the community that will not look out of place and people will live with it,” Wright said. “It’s not something that’s going to end the world.”

Erika Sandoval is overcome with emotion during an EASE program grad ceremony.

Jennifer McFee jmcfee@thenownews.com Young adult immigrants and refugees can ease into Canadian life through a provincially funded initiative called English and Skills for Employment (EASE). Offered through School District 43 and SUCCESS, the program is geared for 19- to 25-year-olds who have moved to Canada within the last five years. They must be out of school, unemployed or underemployed. Participants receive English lessons, vocational training and supervised job placements. Nour Al-Behadili, 19, enrolled in EASE — along with her twin brother and 23-year-

old sister — after her family immigrated to Coquitlam from Jordan in January. “When I came here, I didn’t know anything about Canada … My friend told me about this program, so I went there,” she said. “They really helped me … They let me know about transportation and gave me tickets for the bus, which helped me so much. It was really very helpful and I had a chance to meet new people, new culture.” With guidance from EASE staff, Al-Behadili enrolled in a business program at BCIT. Her sister found work in the pharmacy field and her brother got a job in construction. Registration is underway for the next session, which runs September to June.

Opinion

Amalgamate to reduce costs Re: “$100,000 salaries common at city,” Wednesday, June 23. With the disclosure in the above article of Coquitlam employees’ salaries, plus those disclosed June 16 regarding Port Coquitlam, I think that things are obviously out of proportion and that the taxpayers who pay the bill have been taken. I would like to know the name, To The address, phone number, e-mail address, etc. of the people who negotiated these salaries on our behalf. These people should be accountable to the people who pay the bill, namely the taxpayer. If I am a union member and pay my dues, then I know who represents me at negotiation time. I can also communicate with that person, which is the

way it should be. I am a taxpayer who has been told I will pay more. I am obviously upset, particularly when I see that things are out of proportion and my representative has not taken all facts into consideration. Who do I write to, to complain? The mayor and councillors will tell me, “We have to abide by negotiated contracts.” I am sorry, but this is not a democratic system, the way I see it. Editor On another note, after seeing these salaries, it sure would save money if the Tri-Cities amalgamated. One fire chief, one general manager, etc. You don’t have to be an Einstein to see that the taxpayer could save a ton of money. But that’s too easy — or is it? Keith Walker Port Coquitlam

Looking for a party? You’ll find one here

F

rom fireworks to live music, from cancan dancing to bike shows, if you’re looking for a fun way to celebrate Canada Day, you’ll find it right here in the Tri-Cities. All three municipalities are planning a range of events to rival anything happening elsewhere in Metro Vancouver. In Port Moody, the Golden Spike Days Festival launches at 11 a.m. Thursday. It runs for 12 hours and features a special Canada Day celebration starting at 1 p.m. Other activities include a spike-driving competition, a cheerleader dunk tank, ecological boat tours of Burrard Inlet, live music and children’s events ranging from boat building to hat making. At the nearby Port Moody Station Museum, there’ll be family activities from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., including a Golden Spike scavenger hunt and old-fashioned train comedy featuring the Three Stooges and Little Rascals. In Coquitlam, Lafarge Lake and the Evergreen Cultural Centre will come alive from 12:30 to 10:30 p.m. with activities at varied times throughout the day. The offerings range from an artisan village to bike shows, musical entertainment, family-themed performances on Evergreen’s theatre stage and an adventure village featuring canoe rides, fitness demos and fishing. At dusk, a fireworks show will light up the lake.

Is Vander Zalm the real opposition leader?

These developments raise an interesting question: It certainly seems that way. James may be the Can James and the NDP wrest the limelight away Official Leader of Her Majesty’s Loyal Opposition, from the smiling, tanned, charming Vander Zalm? but only in the legislature and in name only.

21 occupy seats from regions the old federal Reform Party used to sweep with some big majorities. Having underestimated the popularity of the anti-HST petition, I’m not about to totally dismiss the chances of a successful recall. The old Reform country is rich with anti-tax populism, and it’s easy to imagine a recall petition catching fire with the voters in those areas. It will be difficult to pull off, but all Vander Zalm needs is one or two winning campaigns. If he can achieve that goal, he will push James farther out of the limelight, thus weakening her leadership even further. While it’s true a fractured Liberal party is a perfect recipe for an NDP win in 2013, New Democrats had best ensure a new populist and free-enterprise party doesn’t catch too much fire around Vander Zalm and Delaney. Given the volatile nature of the B.C. electorate, it’s conceivable a third party could swamp the existing Liberals to the point of simply replacing them. That would put the NDP up against a single free-enterprise party again. The NDP jumped on the anti-HST bandwagon for obvious political advantage. They had better hope that bandwagon doesn’t get so crowded that they end up getting pushed off it as it heads down the road.

Connector should be tolled Re: “City looks at suing TransLink,” Friday, June 25. I’m not keen on the taxpayers of Port Moody being stuck with the full tab for this $50-million bridge. Since probably nine-tenths of the traffic on this route is external to Port Moody, then it only seems fair that the cost should be recouped by a user’s toll. The transponder technology used on the new Golden Ears and forthcoming Port Mann bridges would be appropriate to use. D. Wilson Port Moody

Businesses will do the math Re: “HST argument ignores math,” letter to the editor, Wednesday, June 23. With regards to the speculation, “I’d wonder whether not having this wider-ranging HST would make B.C. more competitive vis-a-vis other provinces such as Ontario,” there is an obvious lack of understanding of what the HST will do for business. Currently in B.C. (and Ontario) the PST is a business cost that must be paid on most purchases. This cost is factored into the selling price (including a markup) of their product. However, the HST (like the GST) is not a cost to a registered business because it can be recovered as an offset against HST charged to customers. Because of the change to the HST, business costs will decrease and because of the decrease, theoretically these businesses have the ability to lower their prices without hampering their profitability. Whether they do lower their prices is their decision, but I’m sure there will be market pressure for them to do so. So, in conclusion, businesses faced with a choice between a province with a taxation system that costs them money (PST) or one that does not (HST)

— where do you think they will set up shop or expand? They will do the math. Ron Coyle Port Moody

Thought control? That’s a laugh Re: “Government holding a gun to our heads with HST,” letter to the editor, Friday, June 25. I had to laugh when I read Chris Delaney’s comment that Premier Gordon Campbell travelling the province to promote the merits of the HST is the “Liberal attempt to control people’s thoughts regarding their ‘hated sales tax.’” I am pretty confident most people would strongly disagree with To The the idea that anyone could control their thoughts, let alone a politician. As for the rest of his letter, it is anything but humorous. I am not sure what Mr. Delaney’s background is, or where he gets his information from, but he sure has shovelled a lot of inaccurate manure onto the people. In response to his points: 1. Gordon Campbell and the Liberals did not lie about the HST during the last election. When asked, the Liberals stated it was not on their party platform at that time — and it wasn’t. After the election, the feds dangled a $1.6-billion carrot and made concessions that caused the finance minister to revisit the issue. Everyone has the right to change their mind, especially when circumstances and information change; it doesn’t make them liars. 2. B.C. already has the lowest provincial income tax rate in the country and our HST rate will also be the lowest in Canada. These facts, combined with the HST rebate credits

that low-income individuals will receive, mean that the new HST should have a very small impact on our most vulnerable citizens. 3. It has been proven in jurisdictions around the world and in Canada that a harmonized sales tax actually generates jobs. 4. Businesses may be losing their very tiny commission for collecting the PST, but other than the commission, they got nothing out of the PST. The HST, on the other hand, is handled the same way the GST is currently managed. HST paid on products is deducted from HST charged to customers. Businesses pay the difference or receive a refund if they paid more than they collected, ultimately leading to big savings. 5. There is no proof that the HST will drive up wages. This is pure speculation and seems highly Editor unlikely because most employees don’t have the power to “demand higher wages.” 6. B.C. already has a huge underground economy, driven in large part by marijuana grow ops. Individuals who earn income through illegal activity do not pay income tax, but now they will have to pay HST every time they purchase something. 7. Within Canada, Ontario is our biggest competitor with regard to attracting business and investment. B.C. has lower business tax rates, lower income tax rates and the HST rate will be lower — I think we win. 8. By all expert accounts, the HST is a much less complicated and much fairer tax than the PST. No information has come out to say it will cost any level of government more to administer once it is completely rolled out. Mr. Delaney’s campaign is irresponsible in its misinformation and fear-mongering. Remember when the GST was introduced? Everyone said that would ruin us too, but we

An RCMP officer removes bags of evidence from an alleged grow op on Lansdowne Drive. Police say they raided the house after receiving a report from BC Hydro that electricity was being stolen.

Police find 300 pot plants in raid of Coquitlam home Simone Blais sblais@thenownews.com The drug trade is down 300 marijuana plants after police raided a Coquitlam house on Friday. Coquitlam RCMP’s marijuana enforcement team searched a house in the 1300 block of Lansdowne Drive Friday morning, after receiving a report from BC Hydro that electricity was allegedly being stolen at the house. Investigators obtained a warrant and then combed the house, finding more than 300 marijuana plants and a host of lights and elec-

trical equipment used for a grow operation. One man and two women were arrested at the scene without incident. Cpl. Bert Paquet said police will recommend charges of theft of electricity, possession for the purpose of trafficking and production of a controlled substance against all three. They have yet to appear in Port Coquitlam provincial court. “The actual seizure itself is only one of many steps that are part of the investigation. Public safety is the priority here,” Paquet said. “We’re happy we got rid of it.” He added that the investigation is ongoing.

Your BC Lions — In Their Own Words I grew up in North Vancouver and have been playing football since my early teens. My size kind of dictated what position I play (offensive line) but I’ve learned to really love my role on the club and on the offence. As the centre I do get to touch the ball on every play, so it all starts with me. Growing up, I was very close to my father and he was a big influence on me during times I needed him most. Picking my college, dealing with adversity, being the best person and player I can be were a product of his guidance and it’s one of the reasons I love taking part in our club’s community programs. Among the programs I take part in, I would say Read, Write and Roar is among my favourites because I’ve seen firsthand what happens to a young person’s life when they grasp the ability to read. The benefits of literacy last a lifetime and I take pride in knowing that I might be planting the seed for a future reader. Dean Valli in action on the field. Photo courtesy BC Lions.

Score Card

PoCo sheds six players in midweek trades Call it the PoCo purge. The Port Coquitlam Saints completed a massive housecleaning early this week, as the B.C. Junior A Lacrosse League team shipped off six players — including its top two scorers — in exchange for prospects and cash. Highlighting this week’s moves was Monday’s nineplayer trade with the Delta Islanders, a transaction that saw the Saints trade Matt Laustrup, Darcy Cummings, Trevor Evans and Scott Jones to the Islanders in exchange for Josh Fiorovento, Chase Kelliher, Jimmy Lattin, Rob Peterson, Jamie Takiya, Delta’s first-round pick in the 2011 draft and $2,500. The Saints also shipped Jesse Rougeau off to the Calgary Raiders in exchange for cash, and traded Richard Cambrey to the Coquitlam Adanacs for a second round draft pick in 2011. “With us being out of the playoffs now, we wanted to do something to reward some of our third-and fourth-year players who have been with the association for a long time and try and get them a shot at something inside the playoffs and a possible run at a Minto Cup,” said Saints coach Nick Delmonico, who has watched his club stumble to a 3-13-2 record this season. The trio of Evans, Cummings and Jones represents three of Saints’ top five point getters this season, while Laustrup is a solid, twoway, 21-year-old defender. As of Tuesday, Evans sat atop the Saints’ points race with 51 points (25 goals and 26 assists), followed by Cummings (18 goals, 31 assists, 49 points), while Jones was the fifth-highest point scorer (nine goals, 21 assists, 30 points). Through 17 games this year, Laustrup had put up three goals, two assists and 23 penalty minutes. “This is the biggest deal  CONT. ON PAGE 26, see SAINTS.

Johansen nabs his ticket to The Show John Kurucz sports@thenownews.com

T

here’s no way but up from here. Whether Ryan Johansen is a Shania Twain fan or not, few other phrases encapsulate the 17-year-old’s unprecedented rise through the hockey world, an ascension capped off by the Port Moody native being taken fourth overall by the Columbus Blue Jackets in Friday’s NHL entry draft. “I don’t think it has sunk in yet,” Johansen said in an interview Monday while in San Diego, Calif. “I was laying in my bed [Sunday night] and thinking ‘I just got drafted fourth overall into the NHL — it’s like oh, OK.’ I don’t think it’s hit me yet but it’s just unbelievable whenever I think about it. I’m sure it will hit me in these next couple of days.” Johansen was selected Friday behind the consensus No. 1 pick Taylor Hall (Edmonton Oilers) Tyler Seguin (Boston Bruins, No. 2) and Erik Gudbranson (Florida Panthers, No. 3). “It was total excitement but more so nervousness right until the very end,” Ryan’s father, Randall said of Friday’s big moment. “Our legs were locked together, we had sweaty palms, the whole nine yards. They called his name, and wow, the emotions just flow. I was holding it together pretty well, and then Ryan whispered in my ear, ‘We did it’ … Our whole lives we dreamed of that moment. What an experience. You can’t take the smiles off our faces.” Now within his first week of becoming NHL property, Johansen’s nobody-turned-somebody story is surely making the rounds. Born in Vancouver but raised in Port Moody, Johansen plied his trade with the local association during his peewee years before making the jump to major midget at 15. His first draft experience could have been considered an unsavoury one, as the newest Blue Jacket wasn’t taken until the seventh round (150th overall) of the Western Hockey League’s (WHL) 2007 bantam draft. The next stop in his hockey odyssey saw Johansen land with the Penticton Vees of the British Columbia Hockey League, where he put up five goals and 12 assists in 47 games. A college scholarship and life in the NCAA looked to be the route Johansen would take, but a perfectly timed growth spurt that saw him transform from a gangly five-foot-eight inch boy to a six-foot-three-inch centreman changed his fortune. A move last season to the WHL’s Portland Winterhawks, however, was the pivotal transition in the young centreman’s life, as he got a chance to showcase his skills in Tier 1 hockey against some of the best players in his age group. His first year in the WHL ranks saw the slick, playmaking centre put up 25 goals and 44 assists (69 points), good for second place among all WHL rookies. He then added 18 points (six goals and 12 assists) in 13 playoff games to lead all WHL rookies in playoff scoring. “We are very pleased to add Ryan to our organization,” said Columbus general manager Scott Howson in an interview with NHL.com. “He is a centre with size and hockey sense. He had a strong rookie season with the Portland Winterhawks of the Western Hockey League. We are excited to add a player of

His name was bandied about as a potential first rounder as early as last winter, with TSN’s pundits

placing him somewhere in the top 25 picks. A few months later, 20 turned to top 15. The Hockey News’ annual springtime draft preview slotted Johansen in at the 12th spot. “This is a very underdeveloped kid who has put up big numbers,” an NHL unnamed scout was quoted as saying in the pre-draft issue. “I think he has the  CONTINUED ON PAGE 26, see JOHANSEN.

in the history of our franchise,” said Greg Rennie, Delta’s head coach and general manager. “To be able to pull this off is just huge. There were a lot of teams across the country interested in acquiring these guys and we get all four of them. I guarantee this trade sent shockwaves around the league.” Rougeau, 21, had been with Port Coquitlam since 2006 and put up six goals and 12 assists in 17 games this year to go along with his 97 penalty minutes. Cambrey, also 21, has played three games this year and registered one assist. All of the players headed PoCo’s way were taken in the 2009 midget draft with the exception of Takiya, who was acquired by the Islanders in a trade with Coquitlam. “Yes, we did trade four of our midget draft picks, but we already have a good number of young players in our system and

you’re going to have to give up quality in return for what we got,” Rennie said. Delmonico said both Fiorovento and Kelliher are playing within Delta’s intermediate system, while Lattin and Peterson are playing junior B out of Kamloops. Takiya is a Richmond native who hasn’t seen much action due to a knee injury. “[Fiorovento and Kelliher] are both very accomplished players, very quick, and I expect big things out of them,” Delmonico said. “Lattin is a very, very slick, quick right-handed player and [Takiya] is a very talented left-handed player who could provide some depth for us here in the future.” The Saints will now have two picks in each of the first four rounds of next year’s draft. “I think what will come out of this in the end, is that we’ll get some bodies that we need next year and then it’s up to the coaching staff to generate something out of it,” said Saints gen-

potential to be a real solid No. 2 centre in the NHL.” As it turns out, that kind of talk made the rounds in the Johansen family. “There was always stuff in the papers, and no matter if it’s negative or positive, you’ve just to worry about yourself and worry about the goals you set at the beginning of the year and try to achieve them to the best of your ability,” Johansen said. While Ryan was able to brush some of that banter aside, his father apparently paid considerable more attention. “I paid too much attention to that stuff, to the point where about two weeks before the draft I told myself, ‘I have to stop this,’” Randall said. “I would follow everything — every article, every story, and I would read all the stories … but it was exhausting, and I paid too much attention to it. In the last couple weeks I started to relax a little bit and I said to myself ‘To heck with it, whatever happens, happens.’ I always felt Ryan was a good player. He just kept climbing, no matter what list or ranking you read, he just kept going up.” It’s that kind of talk and ever-mounting pressure that Johansen will be able to avoid in going to Columbus, a club that’s not necessarily considered a traditional hockey

market and one that has only one playoff berth in the last five years. “When I did my flydown there after the Combine in Toronto, I had a great feeling for the city, and in the back of my mind I felt like I should be there. It just seems like my kind of city. I had a really good feeling about it,” said Johansen, who cites centres Ryan Getzlaf and Joe Thornton as his favourites. And now with the first big day taken care of, there are undoubtedly more of those on the horizon, as opportunities to impress the brass within the NHL, WHL and Hockey Canada ranks are coming up. Johansen was in Columbus as of Wednesday taking part in the club’s development camp, a six-day grind meant to test the mettle of rookies and upstarts. From there, he’ll travel to Newfoundland for Hockey Canada’s world junior team orientation camp in early August, before another stop at Portland’s camp. Come late August or early September, he’ll get another chance to impress at yet another Blue Jackets camp. “The goal for right now and for the next three months is going to camps and making it a really tough decision on the organizations about whether to send me home,” he said. “I want to go in there and make a statement that I want to be there, and I want to prove that to them as much as I can.”
