Butterflies were more than a symbol during a ceremony held Tuesday in the city – they were real and fluttering. Because the community centre expansion is “bringing new life” to Queensborough, butterflies were released at the groundbreaking ceremony that for the expansion of the Queensborough Community Centre. The new 13,180 square foot expansion the For a photo gallery of this event Queensborough go to www.royalcityrecord.com Community Centre will include space for a licensed daycare, an expanded fitness centre, a branch library, police offices and multiuse activity spaces. “This will be the first neighbourhood hub in the city,” said Renee Chadwick, manager of the community centre. “It is the first of four in the city. That is pretty exciting.” Neighbourhood hubs bring various community services together in one place. Planning for the expansion has been underway for two years and work is now getting underway.

Rail bridge could be out indeﬁnitely BY BRENT RICHTER REPORTER email@example.com
The company that owns the rail bridge damaged in Tuesday’s early morning barge crash says it is still too soon to say how long the bridge will be out of commission. A barge collided with the bridge, which spans the north arm of the Fraser River between Queensborough and downtown New Westminster, around 4:30 a.m.
Tuesday morning, severing the rail link and closing the north arm to marine traffic. Frank Butzelaar, president of Southern Railway of B.C., said Thursday that engineers were still assessing the damage. “When we do confirm the extent of the damage, if there is any, at that point we’ll be able to commit to a plan. If there’s limited to no damage, we expect we’ll be able to get the bridge up and in place within 14 days,” he said. “If there’s structural

We don’t exactly know what that damage is.” Butzelaar was able to say that the bridge’s gear mechanism appears to be damaged and there will need to be repair work done to the protection pier but the rail link could be reestablished while that work is done. “We could position the span so that it’s open for rail, then work on getting the turning mechanism going, but all of this takes some communication with the

hull construction and marine personnel regulations. “All I know is I’ve got a bridge that’s out of service and I’ve got to get in back in service,” Butzelaar said. “As for determining how it happened, we’ll just defer that to the Transportation Safety Board.” Southern Railway services 30 customers, many on Annacis Island, who use the rails to ship freight including vehicles, forest products and industrial products. The bridge handles eight to 10 crossings per day, on average, according to the company. Butzelaar said the company has been scrambling to come up with other options for its customers, two of which are in the final stages of being confirmed and couldn’t be disclosed though he said they would likely involve shipping automobiles on trucks. “(The customers) have been great – very supportive. They understand that it wasn’t because of any action we took and I think they feel that we’re doing everything we can to get that bridge back and going,” he said. But some, namely Westminster Quay-area residents, are finding a bright side to the situation. James Crosty, president of the Quayside Community Board, said association members got some of the best sleep they’ve had in years since trains stopped crossing the bridge on Tuesday. “The sound was almost deafening because you’re waiting for noise. It was unbelievably quiet last night,” he said. “At 4:30 a.m., we get the train whistles. That’s

Crushed: A gravel barge ran into the railway bridge early Tuesday cutting rail transportation to Queensborough and Annacis Island. The bridge has been in service since 1911. when it starts and it goes throughout the night. There’s no respite for the people on the rail yard side, so last night was an amazing experience. I know there was a lot of people last night who, for the first time in many, many years, experienced a quiet night.” Crosty said Quay residents knew about the rail yard when they bought condos, but he sees the incident and bridge closure as an opportunity for Southern
Railway and its clients to re-evaluate how they bring products into the Lower Mainland and how they ship them afterwards. Specifically, he said more use of the river and other ports may turn out to be cheaper and more efficient for the companies. “This could just spark a new option. I believe that’s fortuitous in terms of what we’re going through. Yes we have lots of trains and lots of people living there but,
you know, communities change. There’s plenty of examples across Canada where the trains have been accommodating,” he said, adding that he does not want to pit business against Quay residents. The board voted Wednesday night to ask the City of New Westminster to “monitor the alternative arrangements being put in place to deal with the rail cars that required for cars.” Butzelaar said Southern
Railway is committed to getting the bridge back in order. “Everyone around here is working 24/7 to get this done and I’m pretty confident we’re going to have some pretty good solutions coming forward and I’m still optimistic we can get this bridge open in 14 days,” he said. Mercury Launch and Tug, the owner of crashed vessel, is responsible for removing the barge from its grounded position.
Here’s how much you paid city politicians
New Westminster political leaders cost taxpayers $346,437 in 2010 BY THERESA MCMANUS REPORTER firstname.lastname@example.org
The tab for New Westminster city council cost taxpayers $346,437 in 2010. The City of New Westminster’s statement of financial information for 2010 included a report about council remuneration and expenses. The report showed that Mayor Wayne Wright received $90,247 in remuneration in 2010. His $4,497 in expenses included $2,599 for conferences, $128 for other
conferences/seminars, $249 for city-sponsored community events, $796 for other community events and $725 for police board business. Coun. Lorrie Williams received $37,058 in remuneration, followed by Coun. Bob Osterman with $37,014. Councillors Jonathan Cote, Bill Harper, Jaimie McEvoy and Betty McIntosh all received $36,310 in remuneration. Gary Holowatiuk, the city’s director of finance, said the variations among council remuneration is due to the fact they can opt for different benefit coverage. Williams had the highest expenses of all council members, reporting $14,111 in expenses. That included $6,738 for Federation of Canadian Municipalities’ committees and $4,653 for conferences.
“FCM is a council directive,” Williams said about her attendance at the federation’s committee meetings. “It was passed by council that I should go to the FCM. I am on the committees.” Williams believes the city’s presence at the Federation of Canadian Municipalities is warranted. She said the federation has lobbied for a number of issues that are beneficial to the city. “I think it’s a very important thing,” she said. “I work very hard when I go to that.” On the low-end, Osterman’s expenses totaled $628 for 2010. His expenses are usually the lowest on council as he rarely attends conventions put on by the Federation of Canadian Municipalities or
the Union of B.C. Municipalities. “I don’t begrudge people a chance to go,” he said. Back in 1996, Osterman had recommended that council approve a policy that would permit the mayor to attend the conventions annually and would see each of the city’s six councillors attend once during their three-year term. The suggestion wasn’t supported by the council of the day. Osterman said he had actually planned to attend this year’s Federation of Canadian Municipalities convention in Halifax, but couldn’t go because of a family situation. Trailing behind Williams in expenses were: McEvoy – $7,385; McIntosh – $3,753; Harper – $3,737; and Cote – $2,767.

Strike over, but mail trouble continues Local postal staff question expired ﬂyer delivery BY BRENT RICHTER REPORTER email@example.com
Canada Post is up and running again but not without a heap of problems in New Westminster. On, Thursday, letter carriers were out on the streets but they were carrying more flyers than letters. According to post worker Leanne Alstad, Canada Post had instructed workers to make delivering flyers – even some that are already expired – a priority over other mail. “All the flyers that were put into the system prior to them locking the doors on us have been mandated that they be delivered because they have contractual obligations,” Alstad said. “So some of the flyers that we’re delivering today are for sales that ended

McDonnell said it was a case of “ineptitude” on the part of Canada Post, not knowing which boxes were still locked. “Canada Post locked them up during the lockout but they forgot to send someone out to unlock them.” After receiving a number of complaints, Canada Post had unlocked the boxes by Thursday.

A thoughtful exercise for Canada Day might be to think about ways that we can share some of the bounty with

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.

IN MY OPINION
Ministry tackling poverty issues Dear Editor:
Re: Child poverty efforts receive failing grade, Our View, The Record, June 29. We all want to reduce poverty – it is a job that this premier, myself, and the entire cabinet are committed to. In British Columbia we are focusing on creating a strong economy with sustainable jobs, while providing targeted supports to low income families – and our efforts are working. We have seen the child poverty rate decline by almost 38 per cent since 2003 and it is at its secondlowest point in the past 20 years. In addition, the poverty rate for children living with a single mother has dropped by 70 per cent. It’s clear that our actions across government are supporting families and putting money in people’s
pockets now. Actions like increasing the minimum wage, which means an additional $4,000 annually for a full-time employee; reduced MSP premiums; the lowest tax rates in Canada for 215,000 families; providing rental assistance for 9,000 families; and the creation of 15,000 new affordable housing units – with another 4,200 on the way – are making real differences in the lives of B.C. families. We’re also helping families by committing to reducing the HST to 10 per cent, in addition to the one-time transition payments of $175 that will be sent to every child under the age of 18 and every senior who earns up to $40,000 a year. We have a plan – you can call it a prosperity plan, an economic development plan, a job creation plan, a good taxation policy plan or even a poverty reduction plan. But whatever you call it, our plan is working. Mary McNeil, Minister of Children and Family Development

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Stop misinformation Dear editor:
I am dismayed that there is constant misinformation (or is it disinformation?) regarding the Elizabeth Fry expansion issue. I have read a number of times from different sources that there would be a “four storey building jutting into our neighborhood”. The truth of the matter is that the residential complex on Kelly Street would be two storeys high and the building behind it, which would have frontage on Sherbrooke Street next to (across the alley from) the existing Elizabeth Fry building, would be four storeys high. There would be no “four-storey building complex” on Kelly Street and the proposed two-storey residential complex there would have the appearance and flavor of condos or strata titles. I have seen the blueprints for the proposed development and the residential building would be a great improvement over the house that is presently there. The people at Elizabeth Fry are very willing to share those blueprints with whoever wishes to see them. Please let us present only accurate facts when this issue is discussed. Andrew Phillips, New Westminster
Trouble with the HST
In a letter to the editor (Lower taxes help everyone, Letters to the Editor, The Record, June 24), while attempting to present his case to vote NO in the HST referendum, Martin Eady references past history in terms of the tax regimes of the current Liberal government and their B.C. NDP predecessors. Within his letter he talks about how much lower the income tax rate is under the Liberals than it was under the B.C. NDP. What Mr. Eady isn’t pointing out is the shift of taxes from “income taxes” under the B.C. NDP to outright consumption taxes and user fees under the B.C. Liberals. Upon entering office in 2001, the B.C. Liberals cut everyone’s personal income tax rate by 25 per cent. In the time between then and now, they have increased Medical Services premiums multiple times, brought in a so called “revenue neutral” carbon tax that has increased the cost of fuel – not only for cars, but commercial vehicles thereby causing inflationary pressures of retail and grocery items – de-listed services from the Medical Services Plan such as chiropractic, massage and physiotherapy, and brought in numerous other fee increases that, when added together, have more than made up for that 25 per cent tax cut brought in back in 2001. In defending his position, Mr. Eady goes on to state that the HST will be at 10 per cent. What Mr. Eady isn’t saying is that it will be at 10 per cent in 2014. Nor has Mr. Eady stated that previous to the imposition of the HST items like restaurant meals, bicycles, massage,
chiropractic and massage therapy, school supplies, etc. were exempt from any provincial tax. Now they are included in the HST. So instead of a five per cent tax on your bicycle, now it’s 12 per cent. So there is in fact an increase on taxes on things previously exempt under the GST/PST regime. If it was a true harmonization of the GST and PST into one tax with the exemptions from the original PST still in place, I highly doubt that anyone would disagree with this argument. A professional accountant like Mr. Eady would like the HST in terms of how to deal with sales taxes. It makes his job as an accountant easier, as he only has to reconcile one sales tax system instead of two. However with that in place, I wonder if Mr. Eady will follow the logic of the harmonized sales tax and pass the savings onto his clients. If he follows what others have done with the savings, I doubt it highly. Let’s take a look at Christy Clark, premier of the province of British Columbia. During her leadership bid for the B.C. Liberals she was on record as opposing a one or two point decrease in the rate of the HST in an attempt to buy votes to keep the HST. Upon her winning the leadership and being sworn in as premier, her government promptly did a total about-face on this issue and is attempting to, you guessed it, buy votes to keep the HST in place by promising to drop the rate to 10 per cent in 2014. One thing I recall about the Campbell Liberals was their reluctance to drop the provincial sales tax rate. When the arguments were presented, the government stated that a one per cent drop in the PST rate would result in hundreds of millions of dollars of lost revenue for the government. I believe the number I saw was $850 million. Taking that number and doubling it to reflect a two per cent cut in the HST, would equal a $1.7 billion cut in revenues to the provincial government in 2014. So my question is: What services would get cut to cover the loss of that much revenue to the provincial government? How many long term and acute care beds would be closed? How many nurses and doctors would be laid off to help defray the cost of the HST rate cuts? How many teachers, social workers, commercial vehicle inspectors, would be put out of work in order to “balance the books” to pay for the HST rate cut? How high would our MSP premiums, user fees and the like rise to help pay for this rate cut? Perhaps if Ms. Clark was more interested in governing the province than making sure she’s at every opportunity to have her picture taken sweeping up after riots or serving coffee at a café in Kitsilano, maybe the people of this province could get the answers to the questions they want answered. Instead, it’s “government by photo op.” Just another year in B.C. politics. Dave Lundy, New Westminster

City teachers support strike action in the fall BY ALFIE LAU REPORTER
The B.C. Teachers’ Federation announced Wednesday morning that teachers provincewide have voted 90 per cent in favour of strike action this autumn. According to figures released by the teachers’ federation, 28,128 teachers cast their ballots, with 25,282 voting yes. Voter turnout was approximately 70 per cent, including teachers in schools and on-call teachers. “Teachers take this action very reluctantly but, after a decade of cuts, we are determined to achieve improvements to teaching and learning conditions in B.C. schools,” Susan Lambert, president of teachers’ federation said in a press release. Teachers are seeking improved teaching and learning conditions, fair improvements to salary and benefits and restoration of local bargaining rights. In New Westminster, the local teachers’ union president said local results aren’t scheduled to be released, but Royal City teachers are standing fully behind the teachers’ federation. “I’ve done school visits to each of our sites, and the feedback has been supportive of job action,” said Grant Osborne, presi-
dent of the New Westminster Teachers’ Union. “We had an extremely strong turnout and mandate. If there’s any surprise, it’s how strong the mandate is. There’s a real resolve out there. ... We’re expecting to see some real movement during upcoming negotiations.” Osborne said that while local teachers don’t want to cause any negative impacts in the classroom, they are telling him they need to stand up for their rights. “We’re supposed to be collective bargaining and BCPSEA (the B.C. Public School Employers’ Association) has been pretty intransigent to deal with,” said Osborne. “We had some success in collectively bargaining a contract in 2006, but that came after job action in 2005.” Osborne said the next step for teachers won’t come until September. “We’ll go into ‘teach only’ mode when we come back,” said Osborne. That means teachers will not attend meetings or do administrative work, concentrating instead on teaching students in classes only. Osborne said ‘teach only’ should not affect extracurricular activities, as teachers will still be able to personally decide what they want to do in this regard. “We don’t believe this will impact students at all,” Osborne said.

At some point during the construction process, the community centre will be closed to the public. A fire that occurred in November 2008 and forced the community centre to close provided some learning lessons. “I call it the dress rehearsal,” Chadwick said. “It gave us a sense of what could happen when we go through construction.” Chadwick said it’s hoped the centre’s closure will take place next summer. “We do offer a number of things outside. The shift will be more on the outside activities we offer,” she said. “The timing
is great.” The City of New Westminster’s goal is to open the new-and-improved community centre in the fall of 2012. The expansion and improvement project has a budget of $7.67 million. Expansion of Queensborough facilities was identified as a priority under the development assistance agreement (DAC) that the city signed in 2007 when renegotiating contracts related to gaming agreements. All of the DAC projects must occur in neighbourhoods impacted by the destination casino, which was originally located in the downtown and has since moved to Queensborough. The growth that’s taking place in Queensborough is creating demands for additional community services and amenities, thus the need for an expansion to the community centre. The 2007 development assistance compensation agreements allocated $6.2 million toward this project, which must be compete by the end of 2013.

Murder sentencing begins BY MIKE RAPTIS THE PROVINCE firstname.lastname@example.org
A sentencing hearing has begun for a New Westminster man who pleaded guilty to counselling to commit the murders of three men. Aleksander Radjenovic, 28, was in B.C. Supreme Court on Monday to hear arguments from Crown and defence counsel on what his sentence should be. Radjenovic also pleaded guilty in March to one count of possessing firearms while prohibited. Crown counsel Alisia Adams argued for a sentence of 16 to 20 years for Radjenovic, who has been in police custody since May 2009 after a one-month Integrated Gang Task Force probe. He originally faced 15 charges, 12 of which were firearms

related. Adams described Radjenovic as the main cog in a business scheme she labelled as “Murder Inc.,” in which Radjenovic would facilitate the murders through the distribution of firearms and planning the logistics behind the hits. The three intended targets of the plot were Metro Vancouver residents Sandip Duhre (a reported former associate of the late gangster Bindy Johal), Andre Remeckie and Dustin Meehan – all of whom were known to police. None of the murders were carried out. Police were notified of the plan by an informant, who is being referred to in sentencing as Police Agent (PA) Wink. The Crown presented a number of exhibits to the Justice Kathleen Ker – including transcripts and audio
of conversations between Radjenovic and PA obtained through a police wiretap. PA and Radjenovic first met in 2003 when Radjenovic owned a New West gun store called The Royal Sportsman. In 2006, PA opened a warehouse storage business for weapons at Radjenovic’s request, and was paid $100,000 plus a bonus of $30,000 to do so. In December 2006, Radjenovic was arrested alongside five other men in connection with the illegal distribution of firearms. In November 2008, Radjenovic asked PA to be a part of a team of assassins. Upon encountering problems executing the first hit, PA turned to the police for protection in late April 2009. Radjenovic was arrested by police on May 21, 2009.

Standup comedians draw weekly crowds at YukYuks and Lafflines and the Comedy Network’s hits include Montreal’s Just for Laughs.

Kendo nationals at BCIT Saturday
T-Bird invited to Caps camp
BY DAN OLSON REPORTER
If the spirit is willing, the competitor is able. Those attending this Saturday’s Canadian national kendo championships at BCIT will be focused on respect and doing one’s best. Winning is nice, too. For Maple Ridge’s Murray Greissel, who is competing in his first national championship after just two years in the Kendo dojo, the goal is also to make some noise. For those unfamiliar with the ancient martial art of kendo – which evolved from the skills and traditions of the samurai – noise is a given. “It’s extremely high paced, there’s a lot of energy involved,” Greissel said. “It’s very loud, with lots of screaming and lots of yelling, but rarely does anyone get hurt.” As a member of Coquitlam’s Matsu-Kai Kendo Club, the 39-yearold Greissel has found the martial art a perfect fit. Experienced in taekwondo, Greissel made the shift a couple of years ago. “There are similarities and differences. [Kendo] requires a different state of presence and a state of mind. … The competitive spirit is the same, but it’s how you think that is much different.” It’s that combination of mental and physical skills that make kendo a martial art unlike others. “Kendo is much, much more than a sport - it’s an art form with more in common with dance than baseball,” Matsu-Kai coach and founder Bruce Campbell said. It harkens back to the warring years of the Japanese samurai, who

top-eight status. “I love kendo because you don’t need to verbalize to compete, although for kendo you really have to yell to score the point,” Tsuyoshi said. The martial art’s rich tradition and multi-layered mystique has earned it many followers. The aim is to outscore your opponent with hits to four key
The next best thing to having your name called at the NHL entry draft is hearing the telephone ring. That’s what happened to Seattle Thunderbirds centre Luke Lockhart of Burnaby last weekend. The 18-year-old Burnaby Minor product was ranked as high as 68th on the final NHL Central Scouting list prior to the draft, but come draft day, Lockhart watched all seven rounds go by on the Internet without hearing his name called. However not long afterward, that disappointment was quelled with a phone call from the Washington Capitals, who invited the third-year Western Hockey Leaguer to its prospects camp in July. “It’s obviously a little bit disppointing sitting around waiting. But over an hour later, I was contacted by Washington, who said they were surprised I wasn’t drafted,” Lockhart said. On July 10, Lockhart will be putting that memory well behind him as he takes to the ice on an even footing against Washington’s past and present draft picks and other invitees. “You’re kind of just hoping your name will be (called) next, everyone who stands up could be you. But once (the draft) was over, I knew there are lots of people who weren’t drafted that are on their

The art of the samurai: Three Burnaby clubs will be sending members to the Canadian national kendo championships at BCIT this Saturday. It’s a free all-day event. developed the training method that has evolved into today’s kendo, which means way of the sword. It’s often described as Japanese fencing. Fortunately for modern-day competitors, the samurai sword was long ago replaced with a bamboo version, while practitioners square off wearing protective armour and similar gear that was worn in the 18th century.
The mysterious, masked attire that has been popularized in films and comic art is also a vital part of the sports art form. Teenager Tsuyoshi Hamanaka, who is a member of the Coquitlambased Tozenji Kendo Club, is also preparing for his first national foray at Saturday’s national championships. The 18-year-old Riverside student, who
graduated this week, anticipates a good, if harsh, lesson learned. “I’m not expecting to win first place, but I will be aiming to do my best,” Hamanaka said. He’s a third-degree black belt who has studied under his father Toshihiro for the past 10 years. His sister Misato represented Canada at last year’s world championships in Brazil, where she achieved
Burnaby families needed for ’Caps residents The Vancouver Whitecaps FC is looking for Burnaby families for its growing residency soccer program. The residency program is based on a European model and is designed to maximize a player’s potential both on and off the field through a soccer lifestyle that links both technical and personal development. By integrating training, education and accommodation, all conveniently situated in the city of Burnaby, Whitecaps residency
is looking to provide the perfect enviroment in which to develop and prepare elite athletes for the mental and physical demands of professional soccer. In September, the ’Caps residency program will swell from the current squad of 25 players in the under-17 and -19 age range to 80 of the top players from across B.C. and Canada in the u-14, u16, and u-18 team categories. Aspiring players can be identified and now enter the Whitecaps FC club system, as early as 12
years of age, and be nurtured in an age appropriate learning environment that will help them attain a potentially successful professional and national team career. With that expansion, the Whitecaps are looking for billet families, exclusively in the Burnaby area, to host the new incoming soccer players. Players who are selected for the residency program from across Canada will move to Burnaby to train full-time and continue their
education at Burnaby Central Secondary School. Billet families will be required to provide three nutritious meals per day, seven days a week, a dedicated room with a double bed (or larger) for the player, and a family environment which is a welcoming place in which the player can feel at home. The experience is expected to be both unique and rewarding for any family to share the dayto-day life with a young player who is developing his profes-
sional soccer career and continuing his education. Billet families will receive financial compensation of $750 per month, along with two season tickets to Whitecaps FC men’s and women’s matches. The Whitecaps will provide all necessary transportation for the players. An online billet application can be found on the team’s website at www.whitecaps fc.com/ billet, or by calling Susie Ernsting at 778-330-1357.

◗ YOUTH SOCCER
Mountain ends perfect season with Blast The 2011 season proved to be an exceptional one for the Mountain F.C. under12 girls’ soccer team. The Burnaby-based girls’ team capped off an incredible Super-Y League season by winning the u-13 championship at the prestigious Baker Blast international tournament in Bellingham, Washington last week. Mountain blanked Seattle 3-0 in the championship final after a tough 3-1 semi-final victory over T.S.S. Academy from B.C. Mountain goalie Grace Walker stopped a T.S.S. striker cold on a breakaway to keep Mountain in the game. Shortly after, Chelsey Fang scored on a scorching shot from outside the 18-yard box, changing the momentum of the game in Mountain’s favour. The tournament final was never in doubt. Paige Furlan led Mountain with two superb goals in the final. Mountain finished the season with a combined record of 13 wins and 3 ties, including international competition. The u-12 girls finished undefeated in the Northwest B.C. division.
Minor lax month The B.C. Lacrosse Association will be holding the first of three consecutive weeks of minor provincial championship tournaments, beginning next week. The provincial peewee A through C tournament will be held in Vernon July 6 to 10. In the same week, the girls’ provincial jamboree,

included two defencemen and Travis Boyd, an American forward off the U.S. under-18 team. “Nothing really changes,” added Lockhart, who scored 21 goals and 48 points with Seattle this season. “From this point on, I’ve got to give it my all and showcase myself as best I can.” Following the prospect

striking points – the head, wrist, torso and throat. “I’ve always been fascinated with the sword, so kendo was a natural fit for me,” Greissel said. It’s become a family event, with 11-year-old daughter Jusdia and 12-year-old son Mason taking to the art. Jusdia placed third last year at the B.C. junior competition. Although he isn’t expecting any major run in the kendo court at the nationals, Greissel aims to give his more experienced rivals a good test as they try to impress Canada’s top coaches. “The nationals will be quite intense, with competitors also looking to catch they eye of the national team coach. Everyone will be bringing their A-game.” Greissel will be competing in the mudansha, or black belt, division. Clubmate Woojin Cho of Burnaby will be challenging in the men’s yudansha, or second degree black belt division. Burnaby will be represented by three local clubs at the nationals. Renbu Kendo Club will be sending 23 competitors to the championships, while Vancouver and Simon Fraser University have 14 members between them competing at the one-day championship. The event runs July 2 at BCIT in Burnaby. Dan Olson is sports editor for the Coquitlam NOW.

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.

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.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ 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. email@example.com • Reading: 416-686-5014
