Port Moody passes fire hall plan City to borrow $9 million for construction Jennifer McFee jmcfee@thenownews.com The fire hall verdict is in. After a tight vote and heated discussion, Port Moody council voted 4-3 to borrow up to $9 million to rebuild Fire Hall No. 1 at Knowle Street and Newport Drive — 500 metres from its current location. In mid-April, the city spent about $40,000 for a referendum asking voters if they approved of borrowing up to $16 million to build a new fire hall. The plan was to replace the aging fire hall at its current site on Murray Street and Ioco Road. Despite low turnout, 58 per cent of voters supported the plan. Two weeks later, council scrapped the idea and formed a task force to review the project. Now the task force has determined that a 1,858square-metre fire hall would meet all operational requirements — scaled down from original plans for a 2,392square-metre complex. One modification is a smaller training area than what firefighters currently have. According to the report, training opportunities could also be found on the road or at other venues. As well, the task force determined it is highly unlikely that the proposed hall would require expansion. If needed, however, the

structural design and site layout would allow for “modest unforeseen expansion.” The task force said they identified ways to save nearly $4 million on the project, for an estimated total $10,812,975 down from $14,704,421. Of that total, $2 million will come from reserve funds and the remaining $9 million will be borrowed. Councillors Karen Rockwell, Gerry Nuttall and Meghan Lahti — members of the fire hall replacement task force — voted in favour of the new plan, as did Mayor Joe Trasolini. “I will walk out of this job before I do what is politically expedient. … It would have been very easy for me as mayor to say we just had a vote — go ahead and build it. Spend up to $16 million. It’s a much easier process than to do something about it,” Trasolini said. “When I’m not mayor of this city, I will still want to walk proudly in this city and say I’ve always done the best for the city, even when it was tough to do so.” Councillors Mike Clay, Diana Dilworth and Bob Elliott voted against the recommendation. Several councillors stressed that the revamped plans should be presented to the public for review. Clay also expressed concerns about the new plans. “I hope to God we are looking to the future. … The infill development that we’re going to see in Moody Centre should the Evergreen Line come is going to be undoubtedly significant over the long term,” Clay said. Designs are expected to be complete in December 2011.

Oh Canada! How sweet it is Crews of volunteers ready for annual celebrations Sam Smith editorial@thenownews.com Canada Day in the Tri-Cities area is celebrated in style each and every year, but how much work is put into these festivities? From the weekend-long Golden Spike Days Festival in Port Moody to the fireworks in Port Coquitlam, and all the way over at Town Centre Park in Coquitlam: all of these parties devoted to the red and white require a lot of man hours and hard work over the course of the year.

B.C. teachers back strike vote Teach-only job action could begin in September if bargaining stalls over summer Jennifer McFee jmcfee@thenownews.com School District 43 teachers have joined forces with colleagues across the province to take potential job action in September. Ninety per cent of B.C. teachers voted Yes in a province-wide strike vote that took place June 24, 27 and 28, with a voter turnout of about 70 per cent. A teach-only campaign will begin Sept. 6 if there is no progress in collective bargaining before then. Beginning the first day of school, teachers will no longer complete administrative tasks. Coquitlam Teachers’ Association president Teresa Grandinetti said teachers will maintain full commitments to students. “The children will probably notice no difference whatsoever. Any type of activity that teachers would do after school or at lunch time, those will still continue because they are all voluntary anyway,” Grandinetti said. “But the reporting will look dif-

ferent. There may not be the formal report cards, but the teachers will still be reporting to parents. They’ll be phoning home, still letting parents know if their children are having difficulty. They’ll see a very minimal impact.” Administrators, however, would feel the effects more, Grandinetti said. Teachers will no longer complete administrative duties like supervision, money collection and sending forms to the school office. As a result, some tasks might not be

done at all, while others will need to be completed by principals, vice-principals or other staff, Grandinetti said. The teachers’ five-year collective agreement ended this year. They hope to improve teaching and learning conditions, with changes to class size, class composition, staffing ratios and preparation times. “It’s not the teachers’ first step. They don’t take it lightly, but it’s the only tool we’ve got at the moment to put some pressure on the employer to show how serious we are. So that’s

why we’re doing it,” Grandinetti said. “In the end, it is for the students that are in our classrooms.” The teach-only job action will begin in September, but it might not end there, she added. “This first phase is really geared toward our local employer,” Grandinetti said. “At some point, the (British Columbia Teachers’ Federation) executive will make a decision as to when they would escalate it, and there’s been no decision around what the next phase would look like.” District 43 board chair Melissa Hyndes hopes the situation will be sorted out over the summer. “I’m disappointed that they haven’t reached an agreement. I think that job action in the fall is going to make start-up in September difficult for everyone and for children,” Hyndes said. “We have our class size and composition … that needs to be sorted through. Consultations need to be done within 15 days. It will be interesting to see how that unfolds.” twitter.com/jennifermcfee

The suspect is described as a Caucasian boy around 16 to 17 years old. He’s said to be five-feet, nine-inches tall with a slim build, brown hair and wearing a grey hoodie, dark pants and carrying a backpack.

Coquitlam opens its door to immigrants, refugees John Kurucz jkurucz@thenownews.com The City of Coquitlam will roll out the welcome mat for new Canadians come September. Though still in the planning stages, a Welcome to Coquitlam event is being organized for Sept. 21 to help recent immigrants acclimatize to their new surroundings. Tentatively slated from 2 to 8 p.m., the event will play out in a trade-show type of format, with booths, presentations by staff and council and information pamphlets about various city services available. The event was organized in part by the multiculturalism advisory committee and is aimed at immigrants studying English or who have settled in the area in recent years. “It’s for new refugees regardless of where they’re coming from,” said Coun. Linda Reimer. “We’ve had several presentations in

recent months that show us where our immigrant population is coming from, and it’s coming from all over the world.” The idea to stage the event was born out of last year’s migration of Bhutanese refugees, and then grew to be more inclusive of other immigrant populations in the Tri-Cities: the Chinese, Filipino, Iranian and Korean communities, to name a few. “Let’s recognize the people that are newly arrived and offer for them an evening of welcoming, but also an evening of information so that they can embrace their new community and understand how we deal with bears and wildlife and all of the questions a resident has,” said Mayor Richard Stewart. “A lot of residents would have these same questions, but new residents must be incredibly troubled by the complexities of life in a country that they know nothing about.” It’s hoped the event will serve as an opportunity for participants to practise their English

skills. All written materials will be conveyed in simple English rather than translated. The booths that will be set up will outline city services like libraries, community centres, RCMP and fire services, as well as information on the electoral process, careers in local gov-

There’s also a promise of fireworks at 10:30 p.m. Wendy Wiedrick, Coquitlam’s community services manager, estimated the number of hours put into Canada Day to be in the thousands. “It could easily be upwards

of 5,000 hours,” Wiedrick said of volunteer hours alone. “What with the cultural organizations, all the volunteers: they are working months in advance.” As far as city staff goes, there is one official position which liases between dozens of contractors for entertainment, vendors and more. But that’s the price of the party. Staff and mostly volunteer resources are essential to the Tri-Cities being able to have their fun. The thousands of

hours of work put into organizing beforehand, the running of events during and the clean-up after is needed for Canada Day celebrations. In the end, is it all worth it? “We do a survey on site, and ask people on site, and we have nothing but positive comments and nothing but positive feedback,” Wiedrick said. “It’s more than just an event.

Port Moody spurns love locks concept for park Jennifer McFee jmcfee@thenownews.com Love is lost in Port Moody. Lovebirds will need to find another way to show their affection since council voted down a proposed love-locks display in a tight vote Tuesday. Council considered creating an area in the city where lovers could fasten padlocks etched with their initials. After snapping the lock closed, they would then throw away the key to bind their love. The idea stemmed from similar installations set up in Europe. Staff had recommended that a love-locks railing be installed at Pioneer Park using a potential $4,000 budget, with the project to be reviewed after one year.

Coun. Mike Clay, however, said he would prefer to see the love locks installed at Rocky Point Park near the Boathouse Restaurant. Councillors Gerry Nuttall, Meghan Lahti, Karen Rockwell and Bob Elliott voted against the motion. Rockwell said she believes the love locks are a form of public graffiti. “I think they’re unsightly and they rust. We live next to the ocean where everything rusts in the salt air,” Rockwell said. “I think it will take no time at all for these things to become extremely unsightly, and people will start putting them everywhere. I don’t support it at all.” In contrast, Mayor Joe Trasolini supported the love locks idea, along with councillors Mike Clay and Diana Dilworth. “Well maybe if it’s nurtured enough with love, it won’t rust,” Trasolini said.

Rockwell disagreed. “It always rusts, your worship,” she said.

You & The Law “THIN SKULL” AND “EGGSHELL PERSONALITY”

facebook.com/coquitlamnow

You’re usually entitled to be compensated for physical injuries, like whiplash or a broken arm, if you were hurt in a motor vehicle accident and the crash was the fault of another. But what happens if the injury you suffered was greater than a normal person would have sustained from the same crash because you were particularly vulnerable, either physically or emotionally? The basic principle is this: the court will try to award compensation that will (as far as money can do so) put you back in the same position you were in before the accident happened. If you were particularly vulnerable physically (e.g., suffered a bone fracture from the accident where a normal, more sturdy person would only have gotten a bruise), you can typically recover for your actual injury. The principle here is that the defendant must take their victim as they find them – the “thin skull” rule. Likewise, if you happen to be particularly fragile emotionally, so the accident causes you greater-thannormal psychological problems, the person at fault must bear that risk and compensate you – sometimes dubbed the “eggshell personality” principle. For example, take the recent case of Ms. P, 56 years old at the date of trial. She was a passenger in two separate car crashes, one in 2007 and a more minor one in 2009. Before the accidents, she suffered from various health issues. These included past post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) due to a tragic history of physical and sexual abuse as a child. She also had problems with her legs and feet, multiple areas of pain going as far back as 2003, and a history of depression and past heroin and alcohol abuse. However, she had begun to put her life together in the years before the accidents. She had been clean and sober for several years and was engaged in some volunteer work. She had also undertaken some modest educational and some limited employment activities. But the two accidents worsened her pre-existing conditions and caused her new injuries.

The judge decided that before the first accident, Ms. P was a person of some fragility with respect to both her physical and emotional health. She was more at risk for emotional or psychological trauma than a normal person without her medical history would be (i.e., she was a “thin skull” or “eggshell personality” type). While an average healthy individual involved in the same accidents as Ms. P may have suffered similiar physical injuries, that person would not be as susceptible to (i.e. at the same risk of) suffering the same kind of psychological damage as Ms. P. As a result, when the judge assessed her damages or losses, he attributed some of them to her pre-existing health problems, for which the defendant drivers were not responsible – so she couldn’t recover for those. But she was entitled to compensation for both her physical injuries, (which included soft tissue injuries) and her psychological injuries (which included chronic pain syndrome, PTSD and depressive disorder) attributable to the two car crashes. If you are involved in a car crash, where you were not at fault, you may qualify for damages for greaterthan-normal physical or emotional problems that you sustained due to your unique constitution. Also, a preexisting history of health problems does not prevent you from recovery, although it may limit the amount you can claim from the defendant. Consult your lawyer for advice.

Opinion

Neighbours make a difference On Saturday, June 18, at approximately 7:30 p.m. my daughter and I were driving down Pipeline Road and noticed a dog running down the east side of the street between Redonda and Gabriola with what appeared to be a stick, arrow or some type of long item sticking right through it. We, as well as other cars, tried desperately to stop the dog to no avail. My daughter got out and was trying to run after it while I followed with the To The car. It ran down Gabriola and halfway down the block and basically corned itself between two houses and a fence. It was a large chow dog, probably about six or so years old with really badly matted hair with this thing sticking through him. We were very concerned for it, and the family that lived in the one house came out to help. The family got a hold of the SPCA, which sent out the one and only officer available. He did an amazing job coralling the dog with a stick and a lasso at the end of it. He was extremely patient and, in time, he managed to put the lasso around its neck. But how

was he going to put the dog into a kennel with a large — about four feet long — stick protruding out its sides? The father of the family got bolt cutters and while the officer held on to the dog, the dad managed to cut the pieces off that were sticking out its sides — which then enabled the officer to coerce him into the kennel. All in all, by about 9 p.m., the dog was in the SPCA van and taken to the shelter. Editor When I called the next day to check on the dog, they informed me that it had been sighted for about a week running amok in Coquitlam and that they were thankful and amazed that we had managed to catch him, because no one else seemed to have any luck. I just wanted to say a huge thank you to the family who helped. Together we did it. Needless to say, a big thank you to the SPCA office as well. The dog had somehow got speared by a metal bar as slim as an arrow. It is now fine. Margit Sine Coquitlam

Our View

Sharing the wealth this Canada Day Today is Canada Day. It will be a day of celebration around the country, as Canadians mark the anniversary, each in their own way. Some folks will take a quiet day at home, while others will prefer noisy celebrations in the streets and in the parks. Many Canadians will take advantage of their proximity to the great outdoors — and Canada has more than its fair share of great outdoors — to experience the wilderness, or perhaps pitch a tent in one of our tremendous national parks (although, the weatherman seems to be suggesting that anyone with such plans in this particular part of the country had best pack some sturdy rain gear this weekend). There’s all sorts of ways to appreciate this special day in Canada. In the midst of the joy and frivolity that accompanies this happy day of celebration, we would like to add an appreciatively sombre thought. We urge all to take a moment to contemplate what we have, just by dint of being Canadians, and what this country has afforded us. We should take some time to think about what we, as Canadians, have offered to the rest of the world … and what we can easily afford to continue to offer. A thoughtful exercise for Canada Day might be to think about ways that we can share some of the bounty with which we have been blessed. It is a sobering thought to realize that only the poorest Canadians have less than the average residents of most of the rest of the world. We need to raise the average level of livelihood in Canada by helping the poorest among us — but we also need to look beyond our borders, to raise the level for others, as well. We have every right to be proud of our country — and sharing gives us cause to be prouder still.

We actually gained our independence incrementally — mostly through the actions of bull-headed prime ministers who did nasty things to peeve our British masters — like refusing to accept British declarations of war as binding on Canadian troops until ratified by Canada’s own Parliament. PM William Lyon MacKenzie King even got the whole British Commonwealth in on it. All through our history, prime ministers bugged the British so much that, when then-PM Pierre Elliot Trudeau asked to let us keep the BNA Act in our own office safe, they gladly handed it over — nearly 120 years after it had been signed to grant us our “independence.” It’s our version of the Declaration of Independence — and we didn’t even get to see it before then! Compared to the United States, where historical facts are mostly about stomping anyone who disagrees, Canada is a very complicated country with a very complicated history. And we’re supposed to remember stuff like when the BNA Act was signed? It was on Canada Day. Do we really need to know more than that?

HST debate: Old tax system was illogical Editor’s note: This is the next in a series of varying opinion pieces leading up to the harmonized sales tax (HST) referendum. For the full selection, visit The NOW’s website at www. thenownews.com.

W

ces. It wasn’t even logical. Consider that PST was payable on unicycles but not on bicycles, on car battery recharging but not on car battery boosting, and on flower bulbs but not onion bulbs. It was extremely confusing, even for tax professionals. Worse, the PST was applied to goods that businesses built or Hurst made, which meant that an additional seven per cent was added to the price even though the product may have been “tax free” at the final point of sale. Of course, it wasn’t; it was just “tax hidden.” The CGA of B.C. argues that the HST is a fairer tax system. It follows a global standard — now used by more than 140 countries — to foster investment, growth, exports and jobs. Returning to the old PST-GST would have some serious economic repercussions. The burden of taxation would be placed on manufacturers and exporters, while exempting much of the growing service economy. If B.C. returns to the old sales taxes, we will likely have to repay Ottawa the $1.6 billion we received to make the transition to the HST, and restore the old tax collection system which cost $35 million a year. Consumers would be faced with making up the tax losses and/or making do with reduced government services, as well as continuing to pay 12 per cent in sales taxes. They would also face higher prices because most businesses would no longer receive a full rebate on sales tax paid on items they buy to make a product or service, as they do under the HST. Those cascading extra costs would again be embedded

My View

hen it comes to understanding the HST, British Columbians trust the Bruce accounting profession to tell the story. Yet the numbers and economic terms can be confusing, even intimidating. Rather than repeat a lot of the research, I would like to give you one view of the HST from the tax trenches. I am the chair of the Certified General Accountants Association of British Columbia. I am also one of the senior shareholders of a medium-sized public accounting firm in Richmond. I do tax work every day for individuals in all income ranges. I also advise small- and medium-sized and larger businesses ranging from wineries to manufacturing operations. First off, I am not a big fan of more tax. But I do know that government needs funds to sustain our educational, health care and other important services, especially since our population is getting older and demand for many of these services is only going to grow. Government also needs to raise revenue in a way that is fair, transparent and helps build a more competitive economy to sustain those services. I am a fan of a simpler tax and the HST is certainly that. Under the old provincial sales tax, things were a lot more complicated. It was not evenly or fairly applied to goods and servi-

in final prices and be passed along to consumers. Many of those that are not in favour of the HST say it is unfair because it transfers the tax burden from business to the consumer. In my view, the consumer either pays the tax directly via a value-added tax like the HST or indirectly through a tax embedded in the cost of the product. Either way the consumer pays the tax. I would prefer the tax I pay to be transparent. Then again, I would also prefer to pay 10 per cent rather than 12 per cent. And that is why I am going to support the HST by voting No in the referendum. I urge you to support the HST by voting No too. Bruce Hurst is the chair of the Certified General Accountants Association of B.C.

But in any warm spell, powdery mildew can be triggered by incautiously watering the rose foliage or watering the soil so vigorously that spores are flung up into the bush. This mildew can be treated organically in the same way as black spot. Tiniest of all rose enemies are the almost-invisible thrips that deform flowers and streak them with brown lines. The flowers should be removed, but there will be surviving thrips that should be sprayed with insecticidal soap. Caterpillars are another pest. The large ones should be left alone if possible because most will turn into butterflies or moths. The little green ones that hide in rolled-up leaves aren’t hard to handpick. Sometimes a strange and beautiful ball of redtipped hairs will appear on a rose stalk. This is a gall that protects the larvae of a tiny pollinating wasp. These youngsters are too valuable to destroy. Leaf-cutting bees that eat holes in rose leaves are also good pollinators. Their work is worth paying for by losing a few little bits of leaf.

Enabling beat-up car hoarders delays the inevitable What’s your advice? Do I try to help Dear Tom and Ray: her keep the Fiat, or is it better to My mom is great. I love her, and stop fighting it and let it go? I need to know how to help her. She Nora has a ’74 Fiat Spider convertible. It’s adorable and fast, and RAY: Nora, you’ve she loves it. But it’s not come to the right place. running. Again. It’s been It just so happens that parked for about a year we’ve run an identical or so now, covered with experiment recently, a tarp. The canvas roof involving someone has a hole, so it would who’s unnaturally need to be replaced. The attached to a decrepit interior has water damClick and Clack Fiat Spider — age, so that needs to be TOM: That would be cleaned or replaced. The Tom and Ray Magliozzi me. clutch (the reason it was RAY: — and a sympathetic, wiser, parked) needs to be replaced, and more detached family member, who now the battery is dead. My dad replaced said Fiat with a Mazda also thinks the carburetor is shot. Miata. My mom literally burst into tears TOM: That would be my brother, at seeing its accumulated damage, except for the “wiser” part. and has despaired over not taking RAY: My brother has been nursing better care of it. My dad and I think along a 1978 Fiat Spider on which we should get her a Mazda Miata.

TOM: But my brother had it painted, for another $1,500, and now it’s absolutely beautiful. RAY: It won’t be for long. But it starts every day, doesn’t it? TOM: It’s a miracle! RAY: It’s not a miracle. That’s what most cars do. TOM: They do? RAY: And you know what’s great about it? Everything works. TOM: Yeah. The windows work. They go down and up. The windshield wipers work, the heater and air conditioner work, the top doesn’t leak. I don’t know why I didn’t think of this sooner. RAY: Because you’re a hoarder and a cheapskate. And because you didn’t have to do the repairs on the Fiat — I was doing them for you. But Nora’s mom doesn’t have that luxury. So she’s a perfect candidate to trade up and “reverse the curse,”

almost nothing works. How do I know? Because he keeps asking me to fix it for him. TOM: Well, I’ve been busy. So when it won’t start, I ask my brother to have a look at it and figure it out. RAY: Yeah, he’s been busy staying home from work because his car won’t start. So I decided it was time for an intervention. TOM: He decided not to fix it anymore. And then, the next weekend, he was at a garage sale, and he found a 1993 Mazda Miata with 53,000 miles on it, for $3,000. RAY: I found it between a brass bed and a couple of tricycles. It cost more than the tricycles, but less than the bed. And the car was in perfect condition — for my brother. Everything worked, but the car looked like it’d been worked over with a bag of chisels. That’s why it was cheap.

as we Red Sox fans say. TOM: Yeah. I hate to admit it, but my brother’s right. Unless you’re a mechanic, or you have a brother dumb enough to chew up his knuckles for you, you’re much better off with a Miata, which will provide all the fun of the Fiat, with five times the safety, and at a fraction of the maintenance costs. RAY: And with a fraction of the smell. So tell your mom that your suggestion has been endorsed by Click and Clack. TOM: And if she wants to sell her Fiat, let me know. In its current condition, it sounds like my kind of car. RAY: If he buys it, I’ll kill him, Nora. • Got a question about cars?

Ford F-150 balances power demands with fuel efficiency prefer the sportier and friendlier look of the previous F150, but most will appreciate the sculpted tailgate, which reduces turbulence for better fuel efficiency, and the choice of 19 different wheel options. The 2004 F-150’s interior was a revelation, adopting a more passenger-friendly look and feel that made the truck more accessible. The 2011 version maintains that feeling, but doesn’t go any further to innovate or set trends. In that sense, it’s perfectly fine, but a bit disappointing.

In 2009, Ford stated that it would make its fantastic new eco-boost technology available in 90 per cent of its vehicles by 2013, systematically replacing its outdated engines with turbocharged inlinefours and V-6s that are smaller, lighter and vastly more efficient. Since then, a 3.5litre eco-boost V-6 has shown up in vehicles such as the Flex and Taurus, producing awesome power and dramatically reducing fuel consumption. Ford has also made great strides with non-turbocharged engines, developing a new 3.7-litre V-6 and five-litre V-8 for the Mustang coupe while following the industry trend toward six-speed automatic transmissions. And in 2011, the F-150 pickup benefits from all of these things. Two years after the introduction of the 12th-generation F-150, Ford has completely revamped the truck’s engine line-up, subjecting it to the most extensive powertrain overhaul in the iconic vehicle’s long history. As a result, the 2011 F-150 can be had with the 3.7-litre V-6 or five-litre V-8 borrowed from the Mustang, along with a 6.2-litre V-8 and, of course the eco-boost V-6. For many owners, the very idea of a turbocharged V-6 under the hood of their next truck is ridiculous; they want the traditional V-8 that they know and trust. For others, that big, gas-guzzling V-8 engine is a necessity and anything that produces comparable power while improving fuel efficiency is welcome. Balancing the desire to innovate and lead the way against the need to satisfy its extremely loyal customer

and finish are exceptional, and the truck feels unbelievably solid. One of the most impressive aspects of previous generations was how amazingly quiet it was on the road, and the current model may be even better, thanks to a stiffer frame, improved body mounts, and a host of other improvements designed to reduce noise and vibration. It has impressive powertrain options, an exceptionally quiet interior and numerous options. Its massize size and lacklustre interior design are a thumbs down. But ultimately, a good thing keeps getting better.

Cancer June 21-July 22: It’s a jumbled week, careening between great luck and unexpected rebuffs. Your energy, charisma and effectiveness are at a yearly high, so you can easily handle all this. Your career or ambitions demand behind-scenes agreements or research (or government liaisons) all month. Midweek (especially Wednesday) you could find just the right data or “note” to bring about co-operation from another. But forget about co-operation Thursday/Friday. Your career, VIPs and parents act unpredictably now to 2019, favouring you Monday, impeding you Thursday. Ah, well. Romance Saturday! Leo July 23-Aug. 22: Lie low, rest and recuperate. Contemplate and plan. Be charitable, spiritual, deal with government agencies. All these bring peace, affection and good fortune. Your hopes rise all July about a legal, educational, international, cultural/ social or love matter. Good, but be “mild” in this – if you push it or depend on it too heavily, you could weave a subtle trap for yourself (or simply face disappointment) especially around July 22. Despite your weariness, social matters arise, and you find a new talkativeness, humour – good! Be cheerful but cautious in dealing with a boss Tuesday. Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: Your hopes rise, as fun, flirtations, entertainment, popularity and social delights flow around you! You’ll meet (now and for 15 years) fascinating, alluring, elusive and puzzling people. You can let this drive you to distraction, or you can fall in love – “perfect partners” are here! But don’t fall for an alcoholic, drug addict, hopeless dreamer, con artist, porn star or anyone with OCD. These types are easy to spot. (And a con artist will find you invulnerable if you’re – paradoxically – unselfish.) All July, don’t get steamed about, pushy in, nor invest in, your career.

Tim Stephens' Astral Reflections Aries March 21 - April 19: The accent lies on home, family, real estate, security, garden, nutrition – and ending stale situations. This whole area flows sweetly, even luckily, most of July. One of the situations you end might be a relationship that you once felt defined your life. Despite all this “down home” and “ending” stuff, the weeks ahead are unexpectedly romantic – but the romance is casual, friendly rather than explosive. (The eleven months ahead bring easy sensual links.) Tackle chores Monday/Tuesday. Relationships bloom with significance Wednesday night to Friday: one ends, one starts? Taurus April 20-May 20: The emphasis lies on communications, errands, paperwork, reports, news, details, casual acquaintances, siblings and “everyday busyness.” Money flows swiftly to you and away from you all month – be smart, bank it; avoid spending or you could end up poorer. A major (wrong) temptation to spend could occur around July 20-24 – careful! For 14 months (Aug. 30, 2012) investing, paying down debt, dealing with “net worth” is a lot luckier than spending – think “us,” not “me.” Home-related discussions fill July – they’re a road to future pleasure! Downplay differences Friday. Gemini May 21-June 20: The main accent’s on money, possessions, sensual attraction, memory, rote learning and surface appearances. These flow quite luckily all July (especially Monday morning) but run into some surprises and barriers Thursday/ Friday – avoid shopping these two days. Especially avoid high-tech stuff, don’t finalize investments, and DON’T push for sensual/sexual intimacy. You feel more active, restless, curious, communicative this month – a short trip (or two) could take you to friends, to optimism and hope – go! Romance appeals but isn’t easy Wednesday night to Friday. Step cautiously.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: Be ambitious. Your career and prestige relations are blessed with graciousness and good luck all July. This week is packed with planetary aspects both good and obstructive; most of these operate in communications, daily events, and other “light” zones. In a broad way, Sunday/ Monday are easy, Thursday/Friday are difficult (a career choice) and the rest are mixed. Take care with legal, international and educational matters: these grow intense all month, and are double-edged. You could find great agreement, or trip on angry hassles. A light touch works best. Popularity grows! Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: The emphasis lies on discovery of reasons, of the “why” – and on international travel, love, cultural rituals, society’s raison d’etre, education, publishing, law, abstract thought. It’s a gentle, peaceful time – though this week has so many jumbled and surprising events that the peace might only be within you. I mentioned love – that’s a big theme for the fifteen years ahead. One of your favourite signs, Cancer, is in true love territory, also – and might approach you Saturday. Popularity, hope fill Tuesday/Wednesday. Lie low Thursday/Friday. You shine with charisma Saturday! Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: Mysteries arise all week, but in most instances these are light or social mysteries, such as a phone number w/o a memory, gossip, a “why’d he do that?” A more significant wonder – or choice – might arise Friday/ Saturday, about money, an investment, inheritance, or a spiritual, health or government situation. If you’re not sure what action to take these two days, just stand back and observe: plans will form soon. Earlier, Sunday/Monday are gentle, wise. Be ambitious Tuesday/Wednesday. Hope arrives, Thursday. All July, relationships intensify: love’s good, fighting’s hard.

July 3 - 9, 2011 Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: The accent lies on relationships, relocation, opportunities, opposition, contracts, negotiations, and dealing with the public. This week is jumbled; misunderstandings can arise. Still, others treat you with affection and grace. Be sure to return the favour Friday, when you might be a little self-involved or stubborn. Ferret out secrets Sunday/Monday – you’ll like what you learn. Wisdom, understanding, gentle love visit midweek. Avoid arguments Tuesday morning. Be ambitious Thursday, but realize unpredictable elements at home might undermine career ”timing.” Hopes soar Saturday! Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: Tackle chores all week – but practise safety. Your romantic courage grows all July. This might spur you to approach someone Sunday/Monday or Wednesday night to Friday. Go, have fun, but accept that experience is its own reward. Success could come, initially, in the pursuit of intimacy (or investments) Monday-Wednesday, but make sure all ethical or legal factors are in place. Ultimately, you might decide this week was better spent on work! A deep insight, secret, ally – or help from an agency – can bring splendid luck on real estate or family fronts. Be ambitious Saturday. Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: Romance fills this week, and some stunning moments can a) bring a locking of eyes that amazes you, or b) a certainty that true love exists or c) both. But true love’s course doesn’t run smoothly this week, so be prepared to jump between intrigue/elation and frustration. By Friday, you’ll experience a deep, subtle knowledge that love is either dawning, or is, in this case, part of the past’s trash pile. All July, beware your temper, especially at home. A friend’s words could point to wish fulfillment midweek! Saturday’s gentle, wise. Don’t move into a new home before Aug. 3. timstephens@shaw.ca • Reading: 416-686-5014
