Vander Zalm delivers petition despite decision While Elections B.C. waits for courts, anti-HST leader decides to deliver the petition to the government BY JENNIFER MOREAU REPORTER firstname.lastname@example.org
The Fight HST campaign is sidestepping an Elections B.C. decision to sit on the initiative petition because of a pending court challenge. While the anti-HST petition has been validated by Elections B.C., the prov-
Advantage Each Office Independently Owned and Operated
ince’s acting chief electoral officer, Craig James, decided not to forward it to the government because a pro-HST alliance of six business associations launched a court challenge questioning the petition’s legality. The associations are arguing that the petition is invalid because its attached bill is a matter of federal jurisdiction – not provincial. “I will not be taking further steps under the Recall and Initiative Act with respect to your petition until a final determination has been rendered by the court,” James wrote to former premier Bill Vander Zalm, leader of the Fight HST movement.

On Friday, Vander Zalm countered James’ move, and announced he would forward the petition to the government’s select standing committee on legislative initiatives, a group of MLAs that will determine what happens next. “If the chief electoral officer won’t do his job, we will do it for him,” he said. Vander Zalm sent a letter to the head of the committee and cc’d all of the members. In lieu of the actual 200,000 pages of signatures, Vander Zalm attached a copy of the James’ ruling, which states the petition has been validated. “The (Recall and) Initiative Act does not prohibit the initiative proponent, or
anyone else for that matter, from submitting the validated petition and draft bill to your committee,” Vander Zalm wrote. He then cited sections of the act, which state the committee has to meet within 30 days of receiving the petition. After that, they have another 90 days to decide if the issue will get voted on in the legislature or in a provincewide, non-binding public vote. Vander Zalm learned Wednesday that the petition cleared but that James would not forward it on to government. Elections B.C. had no comment, stating the matter was before the courts. ◗HST Page 5

◗ HST FALLOUT
HST tab tough to swallow
Good to go: Mongo Bongo owners Pete Fung and Sharon Fung are restaurateurs who are opening up a new restaurant in New Westminster despite tough economic times and the HST. Jason Lang/THE RECORD
BY JANAYA FULLER-EVANS, ALFIE LAU REPORTERS email@example.com
B.C. restaurants are already experiencing lower sales and have cut back on staff hours since the Harmonized Sales Tax came in last month, according to the Canadian Restaurant and Foodservices Association. The association surveyed 802 restaurants throughout the province and reported that, on average, restaurants have seen a 10 per cent decline in sales compared with last year. “It’s certainly not good news,” said Mark von Schellwitz, the association’s vice president for Western Canada. According to the survey, 72 per cent of respondents said the HST was having a negative impact on their restaurants, 53 per cent said customers are spending less, and 47 per cent said they had been forced to cut back on staff or staff hours to adjust to the HST. However, three per cent of respondents said the tax has had a positive impact on their businesses. The survey was conducted between July 26 and 31. In New Westminster, the HST doesn’t seem to have affected a couple of local restaurateurs. Pete Fung has had a dream for the past decade to open his own restaurant, and it’s still full steam ahead. Fung needed the time to refine the concept, save up enough working capital and find the right location. And as Fung and wife Sharon are set to open Mongo Bongo Mongolian Grill at 512B Sixth Ave., they face yet another obstacle: the HST. “Yes, it’s scary to be opening a restaurant when you hear all the stories about how the HST is affecting business, but I’ve made adjustments in my prices so that we can offer an affordable meal,” said Pete. “I believe in my concept and people still will go out and eat.” And that concept is the Mongolian grill, where customers pick their own fast, fresh healthy ingredients, which are then cooked on the grill in less than two minutes and the result, according to Pete, is a “self-inspired creation”. “We are going to have an all-you-can-eat for $13 and we’ll have lunch specials for about $7.50,” said Pete. “There will still be HST on those prices but I made a conscious decision to set the price a little lower so that more people can come and try us.” Pete’s optimism is shared by another prominent Royal City restaurateur.
“Nobody likes taxes but that hasn’t having a good time.” Petropavlis said he understands why stopped us from going ahead with our new front patio (on Sixth Street),” said Peter people dislike higher taxes, but people still Saran, manager of the River’s Reach pub. want to have a good time. “If people are spending more money, “My take on this is that if there is a good time, and there never is a good time, to they want to get more value, that’s what we have to concentrate on, bring in a new tax, summer is that’s what we’re doing at the the best time because it’s a little River’s Reach,” he said. slower and when we get busy And adding more value again in the fall, everybody will “I think once meant constructing the Sixth have had a couple of months Street patio. to get acclimated to the HST. the fall comes “We started construc...

because we were trying to get everything right in the system.” As for how the servers have been affected by the HST, Saran said his employees haven’t noticed much change in their total gratuity. “We had some of our servers say they’re not getting as much, but we have others who say that because bills are generally higher, their tips are higher as well,” said Saran. “I don’t think it’s affected our servers in a huge way.” The optimism is not shared by Robert Tang, owner of La Rustica Ristorante Italiano further down Sixth Street. “The last couple of weeks have been much slower compared to last year at the same time,” said Tang. “I’ve heard from people that it is affecting their decision to go out and even those who are coming are spending less. “Whether it’s cutting down on what they drink or ordering only the specials, we are noticing it.” Tang estimates the numbers to be down between 12 and 15 per cent compared to last summer, but he thinks it may rebound by the autumn. “There’s nothing we can do about it right now,” he said. “People need that time to adjust to the HST, and I think the earliest we’re going to see a rebound is October.” Tang said one thing that has helped is the three-course meal specials that have been very popular all summer. “Everybody seems to be ordering the specials and I hope that when they see the value we’re offering, they will come back again.” Help for Tang and other restaurant owners can’t come soon enough. Industry representatives are still in discussion with the provincial ministry of finance about the new tax, which came into effect on July 1. While von Schellwitz said the HST is here to stay, he added that the association is trying to develop creative solutions, with the province’s help, to mitigate the negative impact. “The reality is, it is here,” he said. “We have to deal with it.” Reducing alcohol costs for licensed restaurants with wholesale discounts and starting a marketing campaign to promote B.C. restaurants are some of the ways the province could help, he said. The government could also aid restaurants by not introducing regulations that would further affect the industry, von Schellwitz added. He pointed out that while the industry had supported the idea of trans fat regulations, introduced in September, the reality ◗Eats Page 5

HST: Petition to government HST legal challenge begins on Monday, Aug. 16. There is also a counter legal challenge launched by the Fight HST campaign. Both cases will be heard during the same period. Fight HST lead organizer Chris Delaney said the judge will be ruling on a matter of law, and that the hearing should take two or three days and that a judgment may come in a week or two, but appeals could delay the process further. The six business associations that launched the pro-HST legal challenge are the Council of Forest Industries, the Mining Association of B.C., the Independent Contractors and Businesses Association, the Western Convenience Stores Association, the Coast Forest Products Association and the B.C. Chamber of Commerce.

Vander Zalm, however, called the move “outrageous.” “Craig James’ refusal to submit the successful petition bill to the standing committee means that he has effectively destroyed the democratic process,” Vander Zalm said in a media release. “We are going to launch a total recall of the entire B.C. Liberal caucus, beginning on Nov. 15. We will stagger the recalls so that the maximum pressure is brought to bear on the government. They have lost their moral authority to govern. We need a new election and a new government.” The head of New Westminster’s Fight HST campaign is happy the petition is valid but upset it’s been stalled by the legal challenge. “I’m thrilled the petition succeeded. We knew our numbers in New Westminster were solid,” said Tania Jarzebiak. “I’m disappointed that the petition is stalled now, and that’s essentially because a coalition of Liberal-friendly businesses have launched a court action.” Meanwhile, Jarzebiak is still urging the government to get rid of the HST. “The government can sometimes admit that they’ve made a mistake and listen to the people who’ve elected them and do the right thing,” she said.

outweighs any possible positive effects of HST,” von Schellwitz said. Ian Tostenson, president and CEO of the B.C. Restaurant and Foodservices Association, agreed with the CRFA findings. “What we’re seeing in terms of sales numbers is in line with the CRFA,” he said. He also said that the sales drop is most obvious in the suburbs, while pockets in Vancouver, particularly around SkyTrain stations, have not been hit as hard. “In the suburbs, it starts to get a bit worse.”

was “a red tape nightmare.” Thousands of food inspectors had to go through ingredient boxes to check trans fat contents, von Schellwitz explained. “It’s death by a thousand cuts,” he said. The savings from the HST, predicted by the provincial government before the tax was introduced, will be negligible, he added. For restaurants, the only savings will be on supplies and equipment, whereas restaurants spend the majority of their budgets on labour and food. “The loss in sales far

In the game of politics, there is rarely a legislature. That looked like the chess checkmate move. Witness the latest twists move that would have put the whole in the continuing HST brouhaha. anti-HST move on ice for a while. But crafty Vander Zalm (see our story on page Bill Vander Zalm and his anti-HST team did what many thought 1) just decided that he would deliver the petition to the govwas impossible – they met the threshold of 10 per cent of voternment himself.

But a court challenge by businesses He, up to this point, appears willing forced Elections B.C. to decide that it to try and use the time-honoured politcouldn’t send the petition to the commitical strategy of stalling. This tactic often tee responsible for dealing with it in the
works. After all, the voters have short memories, and, if you wait long enough, something else will steal headlines and capture everybody’s attention. However, we don’t think this strategy will work here. Vander Zalm is a wily and tenacious former politician who clearly sees this as much more than a political game – he sincerely views this as a principled fight for democratic rights. Add Carole James and the NDP to the mix and Campbell and the Liberals are outnumbered. But it’s far more than num-
bers. The public is outraged by the HST and the Liberals’ arrogant attitude. We don’t think they’ll forget this one. There is only one move for Campbell to make: He must call the legislature back into session and open up the debate. Only then does he have an opportunity to prove that the HST is needed, and only then does he have a chance to give the public some display of democracy. Hiding behind the courts on this one is not only avoiding his responsibility as premier, it is also politically foolhardy.

God a man-made concept
Re: Look for guidance in God’s word, Letters to the Editor, The Record, Aug. 11. To Elizabeth Slinn and the other religious bigots who have been so offended by the Pride parade and other related events of late. Your religions and, in fact, “gods” are inventions of man. There is no “word of God” or “Gods’ law.” It’s just a seed planted in the fear centre of your brain. Planted by authority figures in your childhood, to keep you afraid and docile – easy to control. As Voltaire said, “Those who can make you believe absurdities, can make you commit atrocities,” and the atrocities committed in the name of God are welldocumented. You may blindly follow the mythology and superstitions of religion, but hold no illusion. The very idea of God implies the abdication of
human reason and justice. It is all based on ancient Egyptian allegory. Homosexuality actually exists. It’s part of the human genome. Always has been, always will be. The fictitious father figure who lives in the sky has no opinion either way. He can only hold the opinion that you give him, for it’s human intolerance and hatred that people try to justify in the name of God. L. Kammel, New Westminster

THE BEST FROM OUR BLOGS The following is an excerpt from a post in Niki Hope’s blog, Time-out Corner, available on our website. I recently wrote a story about a New Westminster Secondary student whose church suggested she leave the Royal City Pride Society. The story garnered a strong reaction from readers – including this lengthy, but interesting, response from Philip J. Murray. He wrote what is essentially an essay entitled, In Support of Tory Inglis. He addresses a follow-up story on the
issue, where a national Presbyterian official said the local church may have gone against policy when it asked Tory to leave the society. He says the church actually “acted in a way which is very much in line with the policies and practices of the Presbyterian Church in Canada, and that these policies have limited, and continue to limit the activities of members based on their sexuality.” He wrote: “Reading the story of Tory Inglis, a 17 year old lesbian girl who was shamed into leaving
First Presbyterian Church in New Westminster after being informed by her minister that she was a ‘poor role model’ for the youth because she is a lesbian whose picture had appeared on the front page of a local newspaper promoting Gay Pride events, filled me with anger, shock and sadness. However it did not surprise me.” To read the entire post, visit www.royalcityrecord.com. Click on the Opinion tab, and follow the link under Blogs for Hope77.
Massey: Did funding seal its fate? ◗ continued from page 6
quality are described as state of the art, which does sound very grandiose, but that phrase is suitably vague enough for politicians to use without having to define what it means. The footprint of our current theatre cannot be that much more than a new theatre and certainly cannot be the determining factor in whether the Massey stays or goes. The Massey is not located in the middle of the proposed school site, but rather sits off to one side of the site. With that in mind, are we losing this part of our city’s heritage simply because that space is needed to build the new school while the old school remains functioning? Were
we not expecting our political masters to explore and develop creative possibilities, and show us those ideas, rather than just opting for the obvious? The structural engineers report commissioned by the school board last September told us that the Massey is seismically deficient, but it also explained that the situation is correctable? All structures and buildings, including city hall, become deficient as seismic codes change, but that is no reason to tear them down. Bridges and even schools are seismically upgraded, so why is this theatre not important enough to consider saving? Funding perhaps may be the major cause of the
Massey’s intended fate. The provincial government will only fund a 650seat theatre for school use. The media tells us that the city will fund another 350 seats, however the city’s press release curiously makes no mention of this. Were other areas of funding such as federal or private/corporate explored? Because of secrecy, we again don’t know the answer to that. Perhaps the city is unwilling to take on what logically should be a civic facility and totally renovate the existing building. I’m sure the federal government would contribute funding to a building named after Vincent ◗Theatre Page 9

I used to be homophobic, until some years ago while attending a social clubhouse. There, I met a new member who was a gay male. At first meeting this person, he told me he was bisexual, for he felt this would be less intense than being right-out gay; though, not long after, he came right out. However, sadly, on a few occasions, he came to the clubhouse and told me that he was actually not gay – that his homosexuality had been all just some sort of mental phase he’d been in – usually after hospitalization and/or religious-influenced episodes. This was at a point, however, when we had (at least as far as I’m concerned)
become friends. And he was compassionate and simply a nice guy all around. But more so, he and I would joke and clown around to belly-shaking laughter. Although I occasionally pointedly let him know of my both earthly and spiritual rejection of his sexual orientation and lifestyle, I let him know that he was more than welcome around me, and I’d gladly lend him an ear with his daily problems – even when one of the other clubhouse members (which was fortunately rare) gave him a bit of a hard time, including getting thumped on his head by a Bible or two. Although he knows that I’ll always be purely heterosexual, nobody has the right to give a gay person a hard time simply because of their sexual orientation, let alone physically assault them for it.

HOW IT WORKS
Low Intensity Laser Therapy (LILT) is a highly sophisticated, non-toxic and non-invasive therapy that uses light energy from both superluminous and laser diodes. When placed in contact with the skin, this energy safely penetrates the tissue. At an intracellular level, the light is transformed into biochemical energy. Cells use this energy to repair and regenerate themselves, enhancing the body’s natural healing process.

Theatre: Entire community affected ◗ continued from page 7
Massey, the Canadian-born governor general, who was responsible for setting up the CBC. What better way to continue honouring his accomplishments and proudly stand behind our city’s boast about preserving heritage and culture in our community? It makes perfect sense to have a civic theatre for the community and encourage schools to use it, but should we again have a school theatre that the public also gets to use? Why is the school board ultimately running this theatre anyway? Just think how much time the school board has spent on this issue, when its main focus should be
solely on the educational needs of our children. Should the Massey not become a civic facility in order to reach its full potential for the community? The current proposal calls for the existing theatre to be closed for three years, so where are all the organisations to go in the meantime? Will they come back later, having found new more reliable facilities elsewhere? Consider also the impact on the businesses that will lose the benefit of the Massey. New Westminster has waited a long time for this outcome. It is understandable that parents are in favour of it. As a community however, we should
seriously consider if this is the best plan, rather than accept it simply because it is the only plan we have been presented with. At least, we have a right to expect that all interested groups will be represented at the upcoming information sessions, in order that the citizens can understand how this decision was reached and just how wisely our tax dollars are to be spent. If we allow a building that has represented the cultural beating heart of the community for 60 years to be reduced to rubble, it is because we, collectively, have agreed with our elected officials to make that decision on our behalf.

That’s a question diners are asking after Thursday’s revelation that Hon’s WunTun House is under bankruptcy protection. In papers filed on July 5, the restaurant, currently with four locations – Chinatown and Robson Street in Vancouver, Sunwood Square in Coquitlam and 408 Sixth St. in New Westminster – owes more than $400,000 to its creditors. Approximately half that amount is owed as wages to employees. Owner Gala Ip told CBC News that while it’s true the creditor protection papers were filed last

TIRED OF PACKING THE KIDS’ SCHOOL LUNCHES EVERY DAY?

The Lunch Lady does it all for you Business idea that gives parents a break and keeps kids well-nourished BY JENNIFER MOREAU REPORTER email@example.com
There’s help for local parents who are tired of packing a lunch for their kids. Meriel Batchelor is running a franchise called the Lunch Lady, which delivers hot, affordable lunches to Burnaby and New Westminster elementary schools. “It’s a little break in the middle of the week, without costing an arm and a leg,” said Batchelor, a mild-mannered British woman with red hair. The idea is similar to hotdog days, only healthier. Batchelor drops off an order form at the schools, the kids

A bowl of Meriel Batchelor chicken noodle soup costs as little as $1.25. Lunch Lady There’s also sushi, locally grown veggies, spaghetti and meatballs, macaroni and cheese, salads and tacos.
The menu meets provincial requirements for healthy food in schools, and Batchelor tries to keep the items interesting for the kids. She offers vegetarian options and can accommodate special diets, and her kitchen is nut-free for kids who may have allergies. She also tailors the menu for each school, if need be. “We listen to the kids too if they say, ‘Do you have this?’ or ‘I really like this,’” she said. For the parents, the Lunch Lady gives them a day off from packing brown bags, which is why Batchelor opened the ◗Lunch Page 12

Salmonbellies debunk Burrards
Centre leading Canada at Hlinka
BY TOM BERRIDGE SPORTS EDITOR email@example.com
The New Westminster Salmonbellies finally put the Maple Ridge myth to rest, eliminating the upstart Burrards with a 135 victory Wednesday. The defending twotime Western Lacrosse Association playoff champion Salmonbellies dispatched the Burrards in five games in their best-ofseven semifinal at Queen’s Park Arena. Maple Ridge came into the playoffs sporting a 2-1 regular-season advantage over the Salmonbellies. But despite winning the opening game of the semifinal series, the Burrards visibly lost steam against the steadily improving Salmonbellies. “After Game 3, we continued on from that and got some momentum and fluency to our game. It made everyone feel more comfortable,” said third star Matt Roik, who was particularly sharp in goal, stopping 41 shots in the win. New Westminster must now await the winner of the Victoria Shamrocks/ Coquitlam Adanacs semifinal series. Victoria, which currently leads the series 3-1, played the A’s Thursday night (after Record deadlines). Should the ’Rocks win the series, Game 1 of the WLA final would begin on Aug. 18 at Queen’s Park Arena. In Wednesday’s Game 5, second star Ilija Gajic got the home team off to a solid start, potting a hat trick in a seven-minute span of the first period.
Jason Lang/THE RECORD
Doing a jig: New Westminster Salmonbellie lefthander Ilija Gajic, in white, has a league-leading 13 goals in the Western Lacrosse Association playoffs to date. The backbreaker could have come just 15 minutes in, when Gajic split the defence and walked in alone and scored on Ron Schibild after a solo rag while playing shorthanded. First-star Jordan McBride sparked a fourgoal second period with his only goal of the game in an eight-point effort. Jordan Hall, with his hat-trick goal, and Craig Conn and Curtis Hodgson, with their second goals of
the game, put the Burrards out of their misery in the final frame. “The series did not go as well as we wanted. Schibild played great. I was disappointed with my Game 1 to say the least. … But playing a Game 5 didn’t hurt us,” added Roik. Neither have all the playoff games the Salmonbellies have under their collective belt. It has allowed younger runners and role players
the opportunity to get comfortable in a Salmonbellies lineup that continues to evolve, said club president and general manager Dan Richardson. “You’ve got to keep improving every year, and every year we have made changes and will continue to do so,” said Richardson. That has resulted in a lot of fresh, eager bodies hankering at the bit for playing time. It has made the New Westminster club
a better team, Roik said. “We’re getting there, but we’re peaking at the right time,” he said. “I think playing game in and game out has helped. Our stick skills are getting better.” That was evident in a number of intelligent plays and crisp passing that hallmarked the ’Bellies win over the Burrards. “If we can come out and just play the game, it puts pressure on the other team to react,” Roik added.
Ryan Nugent-Hopkins of Burnaby scored a hat trick to lead Canada to a 73 victory over Switzerland at the Memorial of Ivan Hlinka under-18 hockey tournament in Slovakia. The Western Hockey League rookie of the year opened the scoring in the second minute of play at Zimny Stadion in Slovakia Tuesday. He then sparked a fourgoal Canadian second period with back-to-back goals less than four minutes apart to give the defending twotime tournament champs a 4-1 advantage midway through the contest. The victory wrapped up first place in Group B standings for the Canadians. On Wednesday, Canada finished up group play with an unbeaten record, following a 6-1 victory over co-host Slovakia. Canada played co-host Czech Republic in the semifinals Friday (after The Record deadlines). Group A winner, the United States, took on Sweden in the other semifinal. The Canadian team defeated the Czechs 3-2 in overtime in an exhibition match on Aug. 7 in preparation for the Hlinka tournament. Nugent-Hopkins scored a goal and added the gametying assist on a third-period power play in the pretournament friendly. The gold- and bronzemedal finals will be played Saturday.
Host Burrards ready for gruelling Presidents Cup BY TOM BERRIDGE SPORTS EDITOR firstname.lastname@example.org
The Burnaby Burrards will have some soul-searching to do in preparation for hosting the upcoming Presidents Cup senior lacrosse championships, which begins Monday. This season’s West Coast Senior Lacrosse Association champion is still reeling from a second consecutive early exit from the playoffs that poses serious questions about a team that posted a 28-3-1 record over the past two seasons. “I got to tell ya, that 3-0 loss off a 14-1-1 season, you just have to let it go,” said Burrards team
captain Cory Siegner. “Another 3-0 series, we have to work on something.” That something is good old hard work, which the Burrards have been preaching in spades at almost daily practice sessions since being eliminated in straight games by Nanaimo last month. The Burrards have been able to pick up goalie Rob Cook and runner Mitch Dibblee from Ladner. Nanaimo lefty Kyle McCartney is also expected to be added. The Presidents Cup is one of the most gruelling showdowns in sport. For the four teams that reach the final day, it will be seven games in six nights of hard-hit-
ting lacrosse, which includes the use of wood sticks by some of the more traditional teams coming to the nationals. “It’s a big thing to take this home,” said the 30-year-old Siegner, who won a silver medal with the Burnaby Lakers at the Minto Cup in 1999. “I think it’s ridiculous. I could barely make it through a three-game series with Nanaimo. Playing two games in one day, I think our physical conditioning is going to be huge, and it’s where we might have it over the other teams.” The Burrards will be competing against defending twotime Presidents Cup champion Owen Sound Woodsmen of
Ontario, Iroquois league champion Cornwall Island Redmen, Quebec’s Kahnawake Mohawks, CanAm representatives Onondaga Redhawks, Alberta champion St. Albert Miners and B.C. playoff winners and last year’s Presidents Cup runnersup Tri-City Bandits. Tri-City has been the bridesmaid on two separate occasions before, including in 2005, since winning a senior B championship title as the host Burnaby Bandits in 1999. Kahnawake placed third in 2000, second in 2004 and most recently third again in 2008, so the competition should be fierce among the competition to unseat
the Ontario champions. “We have to come out for the first two games flying and put the ball in the net, and that’s been one of our problems in recent games,” Siegner said, adding the prize at the end of the competition makes the pain and effort all worthwhile. “What can I say? It’s a lot of hurt.” The Presidents Cup begins Monday with Burnaby taking on the Redmen at 10:30 a.m. Round-robin matches run all day through to Friday. The bronze- and gold-medal games are scheduled for 3 and 7 p.m. on Saturday at the Bill Copeland Sports Centre.

Taking a summer holiday? Larry Wright/THE RECORD
We’ll meet again: Keegan Bal, centre, scored two goals for the New Westminster Salmonbellies in a 13-7 Game 5 loss to the Coquitlam Adanacs on Wednesday.
It’s now up to the Minto email@example.com
It’s not over, despite a final playoff series loss to the B.C. Junior Lacrosse League regular season champion Coquitlam Adanacs. The junior A New Westminster Salmonbellies lost 13-7 to the Adanacs in Coquitlam Wednesday to drop the best-of-seven final series 4-1 to Coquitlam. But despite the loss, both teams will meet again when the 2010 Minto Cup comes to Coquitlam, beginning Saturday, Aug. 21. The Adanacs are the designated hosts, while New Westminster qualified as the No. 2 team out of the
West. In the playoff final, New Westminster fell behind 6-1 in the opening period under poor floor conditions at the Coquitlam centre. According to Jr. A Salmonbellies head coach Dan Perreault the arena floor was not cleaned prior to the game and the club had to purchase a nonslip product to put on the soles of the players’ shoes between periods in readiness for the middle frame. “We’re done with the series. Now we’re going to focus on the first game of the Minto, and it’s Orangeville,” said Perreault, who declined further comment. Burnaby pickup Riley
Loewen and Matthew Dinsdale counted hat tricks for the Adanacs, while Jay Card, Keegan Bal and Cody Bremner replied with two goals apiece. Brandon Mulligan and Frank Scigliano faced a total of 54 shots in goal. In the Minto, teams must play sound defensively in the tournament’s round-robin format, said Perreault. “We can’t fall asleep. In championship games, you have to be really disciplined. We have be aggressive but stay out of the penalty box,” he said. New Westminster opens the Minto Cup against Ontario champion Orangeville Northmen.

If you suspect that an ad to which you have responded is misleading, here are some hints to remember. Legitimate employers do not ask for money as part of the application process; do not send money; do not give any credit card information; or call a 900 number in order to respond to an employment ad. Job opportunity ads are salary based and do not require an investment. If you have responded to an ad which you believe to be misleading please call the Better Business Bureau at 604-682-2711, Monday to Friday, 9am - 3pm or email email@example.com and they will investigate.

EDUCATION GARAGE SALES MARKETPLACE CAREER COACH Don’t dismiss part-time job opportunities
If you are looking for full-time work, you should consider applying for part-time work as part of your long-term job search strategy. B.C. Gregg Taylor added 25,800 part-time jobs last month - but lost 9,500 full-time positions- according to the Statistics Canada’s labour-force survey. This is partly a summer trend, but also indicative of job recovery after a recession where employers start to re-hire, but slowly and cautiously. The reality is that, although full-time work may be your goal, there are more part-time than full-time jobs available right now. On the upside, part-time jobs can be a stepping stone to reaching your career goals since they are an excellent opportunity to: Showcase your strengths & skills – Take on projects and tasks that highlight your value as an employee, and impressed bosses will likely think of you when other opportunities arise. Develop your skills – Take advantage of chances to learn new skills, or develop existing ones, on the job. This will make you more marketable. Build your network – Tell your employer that you are interested in full-time work if it becomes available, and capitalize on chances to further build your network by meeting new people through work. Working part-time leaves you hours each day or week to continue your networking and job search Do you want to explore your career options and develop an action plan for achieving your career goals? Call 604-434-1177 to sign up for an information session for the Transitions Program, our government funded (no fee) three-week career exploration program available to anyone who is unemployed or under employed and eligible to work in Canada.

Call Leigh Turnbull 604-530-4111 ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
Aries March 21 - April 19: Your month of joy continues! Problems might not be solved, but they ebb. You might need to make a choice regarding a relationship, a relocation, or an opportunity Monday, Friday/Saturday. Hint: doing what you want, opting for expansion or under standing, for cheerfulness, for legal, publishing, international or educational “growth” is luckier than seeking to further your ambitions through a relationship. But start no new projects before Sept. 12. (Others might be skeptical toward you for the next two years if you show “naked ambition.” You might marry into another generation.)
Cancer June 21-July 22: Start nothing new before Sept. 12. Instead, apply yourself to ongoing projects, and protect these from supply disruptions, secondguessing, delays and mistakes. Your home life is very active now through early September – if not on the outside, then emotionally. A real estate deal could involve your career or prestige ambitions – but don’t start a new one: keep with what’s begun. A “long lost” acquaintance might get in touch – good, not spectacular. Sunday/Monday are romantic. Work succeeds Tuesday/Wednesday. Relationships turn volatile Thursday/Friday: a structural change is “destined.”
Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: Before Sept. 12, start no new projects, especially in legal, governmental, administrative, manufacturing, tax, charitable, spiritual, educational, far travel, publishing or similar areas. Your romantic, social and personal magnetism is at a great peak – take advantage, don’t stay home! However, since nothing new will work, focus (until Sept. 12) on people you’ve already met. If you’re after love, stand before old ﬂames, or present company. This week, your own sober outlook might subtly clash with kids, home, realty objectives – a partnership needs hope, assurance: give it!
Taurus April 20-May 20: Start no new projects before Sept. 12. Slowdowns, indecision, secondguessing, missed appointments and supply disruptions could “populate” the weeks ahead. An old ﬂame might return soon – if after Aug. 21, it could lead to strong romance! If that happens, you will need to dec ide whether this relationship has a long-term future. Many half-hidden, slowly evolving forces and “subconscious wrestling matches” exist here. But it could be exceptional! Early week demands a choice between chores/duties. Financial luck high Tuesday/ Wednesday. Love ﬁghts work, Thursday onward.
Leo July 23-Aug. 22: Defer new starts, projects, relationships until Sept. 12. Those begun now will meet indecision, delay and, ultimately, lack of heart – especially in monetary regions. Focus on what’s already started – and money (etc.) from the past. August is a ﬁne time to revisit old haunts, friends – pleasure is certain, ﬂirtation and a bit of heartquickening quite possible, too! A trip might interfere with your work demands: if so, you choose. Sunday/ Monday emphasize home, kids and a casual vs. profound choice (in relationships,law,intellect,travel). Romance, creative ﬂows, Tuesday/Wednesday!
Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: Start nothing new before Sept. 12, especially in social, investment, ﬁnancial and organizational zones. These areas might yield fruits from the past – be aware, ready to pluck them. (E.g., someone from an old social circle might call; or a past investment you couldn’t capture returns. Jump in, if you know it’s good.) A secret love could attract you August or early September. You might be wiser to wait until Sept. 9 onward, when your magnetism will soar! Vexations in communications/travel signal the need for a whole new system/vehicle, etc. – after Sept. 12.
Gemini May 21-June 20: Start nothing new, relationships nor projects, before Sept. 12. Delays, indecision, second-guessing and “no shows” increase. A former domestic matter, a prodigal child, a real estate idea/urge/project might return. This could be good, but be cautious: over the few months ahead, someone might oppose you in these areas. (This could take the form of unpredictable action by a cooperator or partner.) You’ve entered romantic territory. Early week, you face a choice between romance and friendship, or between being creative or social. Late week, DO NOT gamble with ﬁnances or sex!
Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: Finish, advance ongoing projects. Refrain from starting anything new. A slowdown starts next week, lasting to Sept. 12. Sunday/ Monday could solidify a source of income,and/or bring a durable set of ideas, a practical “life philosophy” that helps you go forward steadily. Instability also lurks, if you allow pleasure or romantic notions to steer you away from duties or practical goals. Contemplate the different paths of earnings versus investments. You might make a choice between these now to mid2011. Rest, contemplate to Tuesday. Money’s good Friday/Saturday. A good week!
Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: Defer new starts until Sept. 12 onward – especially in relationships, career, VIP relations, litigation, negotiation, relocation and dealings with the public. (E.g., don’t start a public relations campaign, lawsuit, love affair, etc.) You might proﬁt from reprising the past in these – e.g., contacting a former employer in your career search. Your social life hums along, and love could be real, “light” and non-suffocating. (Love’s laughter can be far healthier than love’s extremities.) You impress others Tuesday/Wednesday! All week, revise hopes to meet money realities.
August 15 - 21 Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: Don’t launch new projects or relationships before Sept. 12. Reprise past ventures, or continue with ongoing ones – protect the latter from misunderstandings, delays, missed appointments, etc. An old ﬂame (the love was gentle, proper) might reappear in the weeks ahead. If you’re unattached, “re-engaging” probably couldn’t hurt! (He/she is ready to “go forth” sexually.) All week, your status, prestige, relations with higherups come under review. (It could be your review!) Deep changes are in store. Be aware that ﬁnance (and sex) has a “fooling glitter” right now. Caution. Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: Don’t start new projects or relationships before Sept. 12. Especially avoid new ﬁnancial,mutual or partnership ventures.Deep desires, urges and insights well up from the past – a past sexual or ﬁnancial interest might return also. Nothing wrong with these, but examine the ﬁnancial before proceeding. Your legal, intellectual, love, cultural, educational and far-travel spheres grow increasingly active – and beneﬁcial. This week presents a rare chance to seal a deal (NOT a new one!) in any of these areas – including love! Wishes can come true midweek – be diplomatic, reasonable. Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: An “ex” might reappear in the next several weeks – or a relocation opportunity, a deal that was never quite cemented, an opportunity to place yourself in front of the public; if you’re unlucky, even a lawsuit. You’re working hard, so have less time for these “opportunities” – therefore, jump fast, carpe diem. Your ﬁnancial and sexual urges are active and rising, but neither ﬁts easily with your “wisest future,” so do some deep pondering – remember, you’re exiting a decade of hard work, entering one of enjoyment. Be ambitious mid-week. Decide between quick money, and big. firstname.lastname@example.org • Reading: 416-686-5014
