designed to mirror the existing fare structure—including the current three zones—to ensure all systems are working correctly. Later, Hardie said, TransLink will redesign its fares “in a way that distributes the costs differently than they are right now.” Potential options include the elimination of fare zones in favour of charging more accurately by distance or time travelled.
A Chinese national who was owed $7 million, and unwittingly enlisted two undercover Vancouver police ofﬁcers to track down the Richmond couple who were on the hook, has been exonerated of criminal charges by a Vancouver provincial court judge. In an undercover sting operation—which paints a picture of police tactics and their unsuccessful efforts to entrap the target—two police ofﬁcers posed as hired muscle who voiced their willingness to hurt or even kill the couple. Wei Jian William Zhou was charged in 2009 with conspiracy to commit an indictable offence and unlawfully counselling two individuals to commit indictable offences, in what the Crown had alleged was an effort to kidnap and extort the local couple. But following a trial earlier this year, Zhou was found not guilty late last month by Judge Brian Bastin. A transcript of the decision was not made public until this week. Judge Bastin found that there was a reasonable doubt that Zhou truly intended to kidnap the couple.

TransLink eyes big fare hike Details still being worked out, but costs will be redistributed by Jeff Nagel Black Press Regular transit riders better brace for a big jump in fares in the spring of 2013. TransLink intends to seek approval next year for an average fare increase of 12.5 per cent. TransLink’s Moving Forward ﬁnancial plan shows base fares are to remain frozen while monthly pass prices would jump 24 per cent in
2013. But TransLink spokesman Ken Hardie said the exact increases in each category are yet to be determined. Cash fares may go up that year, he said, and numbers in the plan showing a three-zone pass, for example, rising from $151 to $187.20 may end up less than shown. “It won’t likely all go on the passholders,” he said. “How that fare revenue is actually going to be generated will be the subject of consultations
next year.” He said the numbers were included for accounting purposes only to demonstrate the revenue TransLink needs to raise in future years. Another big factor in the future of transit fares is that TransLink’s Compass smart cards arrive in 2013. “We’re going through a fare review right now to see how the fare structure will eventually roll out,” Hardie said. The Compass card will initially be

Lekstrom tells mayors he’s open to TransLink reform Minister’s olive branch latest thaw in relations as key vote looms by Jeff Nagel Black Press Transportation Minister Blair Lekstrom has fanned hopes that elected mayors and councillors may regain direct control over TransLink’s spending. Lekstrom told mayors Thursday he’s prepared to consider changes to TransLink’s governance structure—a key demand of cities since the province reformed the transportation authority in 2008 and installed an unelected corporate-style board to make most decisions behind closed doors. Mayors say they’re stuck signing the cheques for TransLink expansion— their only real authority is over approval of signiﬁcant increases in fares, taxes and other fees—but they have no control over the priorities and choices of where the money goes. “Let’s sit down, let’s figure out what’s working, what isn’t working and ﬁnd a solution,” Lekstrom said after the meeting.

Salmon found free of Japanese radiation Food inspectors say fish tests turned up nothing by Jeff Nagel Black Press Salmon tested after returning to B.C. show no signs of elevated radiation levels from their migration through ocean waters feared to be contaminated by the Japanese nuclear disaster earlier this year. “Twelve samples of domestic ﬁsh were tested and all products were below Health Canada action levels,” according to the Canadian Food Inspection Agency. All samples came back showing no detectable levels levels of radioactive cesium. Spokesperson Alice D’Anjou said the samples covered pink, chum, coho, sockeye and spring salmon and albacore tuna. “They were collected at various points across the British Columbia ﬁshery,” she said. Fraser River sockeye migrate as far west as the Bering Sea, although some observers say they were likely on their way back to B.C. when the March 11 earthquake and tsunami crippled multiple nuclear reactors and released radiation through the air and contaminated seawater. CFIA ofﬁcials had said they didn’t expect anything to turn up, but conducted the tests out of an abundance of caution, primarily to reassure Canadian consumers and export markets. The agency had previously tested air samples, milk and foods imported from Japan.

New technology offers faster screening of criminal records What was once a months-long process can now be done in a few minutes by Martin van den Hemel Staff Reporter Richmond children became a lot safer earlier this month, and their parents probably never realized it. With a bit of new technology quietly introduced at the Richmond RCMP detachment two weeks ago, the volunteer coaches and managers who assist with local sports teams will receive speedier screening to ensure they’re no threat to the children who’ll be looking up to them. A criminal record check—a requirement for anyone wishing to volunteer as a manager or coach with a local children’s sports team—that once took months is now just a minutes-long process. A $120-million national civil fingerprinting screening program was rolled out earlier this year, with ink-
free ﬁngerprint screening introduced at strategic highly-populated areas close to the border. The new technology allows for a digital image of a person’s ﬁngerprints to be captured—in a process akin to scanning a photograph—with that digital packet of information then compared to the RCMP’s existing database in Ottawa. Robert Murray, manager of civil ﬁngerprint screening services for RCMP headquarters in Ottawa, told The Richmond Review that the hardware is now in Richmond, meaning a safer environment for local children, but also more secure boarders. To get a criminal check done, all that’s required is entering the local detachment and passing on one’s driver’s licence. The cost is upwards of $50, unless it’s for volunteer work, in which case it’s free provided the
volunteer organization provides a letter explaining as much. If you are unlucky enough to share a birthdate with a criminal, or worse yet have the same name, you’ll need to be ﬁngerprinted. And therein lies the heart of the previous challenge. Under the old system, ﬁngerprinting happened at a detachment, with the prints then mailed to Ottawa, where the prints are then scanned and entered into a computer system for comparison purposes. The results, under the old system, were then also mailed out via Canada Post. That process often took months. Richmond Soccer Association’s Ruth Balfour said every year at this time, dozens of new coaches step forward to coach local boys and girls soccer teams, but aren’t permitted to volunteer unless they’ve recently com-
can be cleared to volunteer much more quickly. “I’m so thrilled. Last year was just unbelievable. The season was almost over, and I had 30 or 40 of them (criminal record checks) from the Richmond detachment. It’s a little late to be checking them at that point.” But Balfour encouraged parents to continue to look after their children when they’re playing.

District eyes $10-million surplus School district officials to focus on one-time costs by Martin van den Hemel Staff Reporter A predicted $4.5 million budget surplus has swelled to nearly $10 million, and thatâ€™s good news for the Richmond School District, said board chair Donna Sargent. â€œItâ€™s a good news story deďŹ nitely to have more money,â€? said Sargent, noting drastic cuts the year before. â€œItâ€™s what we can do with that (money) and putting back in is good.â€? Last February, the district had predicted it would have more money

than originally anticipated from the 2010/11 school year, and those millions of dollars have already been earmarked for areas to beneďŹ t local students. Late-arriving cash from the province, an underestimated growth in the districtâ€™s international student program, and other unanticipated money have boosted what was originally just a $4.5 million surplus with an additional $5 million. School district secretary treasurer Mark De Mello said that over the course of the next two months, the district will compile a list of possible areas the richmond

where the extra money could be spent. Since the bulk of the unexpected money is of a one-time nature, the district will likely focus one-time costs, such as energy-efficiency upgrades to facilities that will reduce operating costs in the long-term, freeing up cash for other areas. â€œThatâ€™s the kind of approach weâ€™re taking with this money,â€? De Mello said. Originally, the $4.5 million had been earmarked for:
â€˘ enhancing accessibility at district facilities; â€˘ energy initiatives; â€˘ increasing Internet connection size and capacity at schools and district facilities; â€˘ upgrading computer software; â€˘ office renovations to address inadequate space for staff; â€˘ computer hardware upgrades at schools; â€˘ boosting textbook funding; â€˘ upgrading musical instrument inventory; â€˘ replenishing local capital reserve.

Two plots planned against woman From Page 1
The judge also found insufﬁcient evidence of an attempt to strong arm the couple if they failed to turn over the money, despite the contents of audio recordings of Zhou’s encounter with the undercover police ofﬁcers. The female target of the alleged conspiracy, whose name is banned by the court from being published, was kidnapped in the summer of 2008 a short distance from her Richmond home and held overnight before being freed unharmed in what local Mounties at the time suspected was a targeted incident. Three men—Peng Li, Matthew King Liu and Wenyang Shan, all from the Greater Toronto area—were all convicted and sentenced that year, after being intercepted by Mounties at the Vancouver International Airport. But in 2009, Vancouver police learned of another plot against the woman and her husband, and arranged a sting operation in the hope of gathering enough evidence to charge Zhou. The woman ﬁrst encountered Zhou in China in 2003 or 2004, at which time Zhou either invested money in

“It was the undercover ofﬁcers that consistently raised the issue of violence... Mr. Zhou never did agree to it.” - Judge Brian Bastin In 2009, Zhou came to the Vancouver area from China, in an attempt to locate the victim and her husband and recoup the money he claims he was owed. He enlisted the services of the proprietor of Vancouver business SpyZone—formerly coaccused Cheng An Richard Yang, who ﬁred his lawyer toward the tail end of the trial and is soon set to go to trial on
his own—to track down the pair. Yang allegedly in turn sought out another individual, who then contacted the Vancouver Police Department. The sting operation followed late in 2009. Defence lawyer Michael Klein argued that his client simply wanted to track down the pair, and did not want to physically harm them or even kidnap them. At one point during the sting, Zhou was asked by one of the undercover ofﬁcers “if he wants to hurt the guy or what.” Zhou responded: “That is not important.” Zhou’s lawyer argued that his client felt intimidated by the two undercover ofﬁcers, and had become “fearful” and was “playing along with plans suggested by them in an effort to extricate himself from a situation where he had got in over his head.” Judge Bastin ruled: “It was the undercover officers that consistently raised the issue of violence towards (the couple) in an apparent effort to get Mr. Zhou to agree to it. Mr. Zhou never did agree to it.” And while the Crown contends Zhou was a party to the 2008 kidnapping, the judge sided with the defence, which denied it.

TransLink Commissioner Martin Crilly, whose office vets fare increases, said it’s too early to say whether he will approve a major fare hike for 2013. “It’s a substantial increase,” he told Metro Vancouver mayors, noting 12.5 per cent is far above inflation. “We will want to satisfy ourselves the increase is justified and can’t be deferred and not reduced in amount.” More modest fare increases for inflation are also scheduled for 2016 and 2019. Some mayors questioned whether the 2013 hike is too much given the region has high fares already relative to some other transit systems. TransLink estimates the 12 per cent fare hike in 2013 will only result in a loss of two per cent of revenue from riders refusing to pay that much more, leaving a net fare revenue gain of at least 10 per cent. TransLink projections show its fare revenue would climb from $421 million now to $517 million in 2013, in part through further gains in ridership.

he federal NDP is tripping all over itself in trying to have it both ways—keeping its large Quebec caucus happy and simultaneously suggesting that giving Quebec more seats in the House of Commons is good for fast-growing provinces like B.C. It’s impossible to achieve both ends. The Conservative government is expected to introduce a bill in Ottawa adding 30 seats to the House of Commons. All 30 would be in the three fastestgrowing and most underrepresented provinces— B.C., Alberta and Ontario. The late Jack Layton tried to push the government in its minority days to add additional seats for Quebec as well, so that it would not have its influence watered down. He campaigned in Quebec on

starting with 64 in 1867 and eventually rising to 75. Redistribution in other provinces has been based on the number of seats in Quebec. Historically, Quebec consistently had about one-quarter of Canada’s population, but in more recent years, Quebec’s share of the national population has gone down to about 23 per cent. Quebec would have had one-quarter of Commons seats in perpetuity, had the Charlottetown Accord
passed in 1992. But it failed, with 54.3 per cent of Canadians opposed, and almost 57 per cent of Quebeckers opposing it. “Rep by pop” applies to Quebec just as much as it does here. B.C. ridings are among the most-populated in Canada, and this province needs fairer representation. Quebec should maintain its 75 ridings, but is not entitled to any more unless its population increases. —Langley Times (Black Press)

that basis in the recent federal election. The lone candidate for Layton’s job, party president Brian Topp, has endorsed this view and said in B.C. last Wednesday that British Columbians would welcome this approach. How wrong he is. While Topp is correct that House of Commons representation is not strictly “representation by population,” the exceptions are minor. Under the constitution, no province can have less MPs than senators. Thus Prince Edward Island is guaranteed a minimum of four seats. No province can have fewer MPs than it had in 1976, so no Atlantic province will lose representation. The four Atlantic provinces together have just 32 seats. A few vast rural ridings, and the territories, are also exceptions. In the case of Quebec, it has had seats based on its share of the population,
Time for turn signal
he Americanization of Canadian and B.C. politics is gathering speed now that legislated four-year terms are finally settling in at the federal and provincial level. Scheduled elections are an important reform, but the downside is that they seem to lead inexorably to constant campaigning. The latest example is the B.C. Liberal Party’s website and radio campaign directed at upstart B.C. Conservative leader John Cummins. “Strange days indeed,” NDP leader Adrian Dix mused on his Facebook page. “The Liberals, after a week of nasty
attacks on the NDP, launched an anti-John Cummins website. Absent a policy agenda, the Liberals seem to want to blame others for their problems. This too will backfire as Ms. Clark is again misreading the public mood. People are demanding substance in politics these days, not photo ops and negative attacks.” I see nothing strange in Dix rushing to the defence of Cummins, who represents the NDP’s best hope for a move into the legislature’s west wing. It is a bit odd for Dix to accuse others of lacking policy, as he leads a party that has been distinguished by little other than negative political tactics since its near-death experience in 2001. This is almost as strange as the B.C. Liberals damning Cummins as a politician who “says one thing and does another.” Yeah, that can really come back to bite you. There hasn’t been much of an anti-Dix effort yet, but you can be sure there is one sitting on
the shelf, prepared for Clark’s recently-abandoned fall election plan. The “nasty attacks” Dix complained about were focused on his federal party’s sudden preference for Quebec seats in the House of Commons, and sniping about which Premier Clark hired more political staff—Christy or Glen? And it was the NDP who started the negative cycle with their own TV ad, featuring “Campbell Crunch” and “Christy Crunch” cereals, both “loaded with HST.” (I can put to rest the ghastly rumour that the B.C. Liberal war room will soon unleash a gang of angry, unemployed HST stick-men.) The U.S. tactic of going negative early, to define your rivals before they can define themselves, has worked spectacularly for Stephen Harper’s Conservatives. They scorched federal Liberal leaders Stéphane Dion and Michael Ignatieff, and public distaste for these methods does not seem to have hurt them. The anti-Cummins campaign has a similar style, and

there are indications that it may have been produced in Toronto. The website, canttrustcummins.ca, uses a bug-eyed photo of the former fisherman-MP that makes him look like a ray gun-wielding alien from the movie Mars Attacks. In fact our whole political scene is starting to look like a rerun of a bad 1990s movie. It was Reform BC that rose from the ashes
of Social Credit, and inspired a desperate Gordon Campbell to sing country music and take a hard line on aboriginal relations, to stitch the ruptured right back together. Cummins defined himself as a Reform-Alliance-Conservative MP by railing against treaties, and that continues to be the core of his thin policy book. His other two main ideas are also pure rural populism. He vows to scrap the carbon tax and suggests that municipalities should cut their costs to fund transit. Voters will have a better idea by the end of this week if Clark’s plan for “defending and creating jobs” is really new policy, or merely more photo ops. B.C. has had its first taste of California-style tax revolt. Now we have two years ahead that will be dominated by relentlessly negative, continuous campaigning.

Editor: Councillors McNulty, Dang and Johnston have stated that they will be running on a platform “to return common sense to Richmond city council.” Does this mean that common sense has been sadly lacking among councillors in the last term of office? That is, apart from these three incumbents of course. If so, will McNulty, Dang and Johnston please tell us which councillors are deficient in this commodity so that we can watch out for them on the ballot sheet? Robert M. Paul Richmond
New candidates could bring needed change Editor: It is refreshing and exciting to see a fine list of excellent names of people who are willing to run as candidates in the next election. Carol Day and Michael Wolfe would do well running on the RITE slate. De Whalen (an anti-poverty activist) has been a much needed
voice for those often marginalized in Richmond. Linda McPhail worked tirelessly as chairperson of the board of education and could add fresh blood to the council. Cynthia Chen is ready to run again and believes in strengthening the community. I welcome all of these five people, believing they will listen to the voices of the people and serve the whole community, caring for the poor and also making sure our agricultural land grows produce. What good is a cosmopolitan city without the basic need of food? Please, also keep in mind that as a council you do not necessarily possess the needed knowledge about everything, such as art! It would be an added plus if we could give the former mayor, Greg Halsey-Brandt another opportunity to run for mayor. He would occasionally stop to chat briefly and tell me he appreciated my take on things. Perhaps he would do something about our horrendous drivers whose speed has killed so many in this city! Let’s all get out and really think through what our city needs and choose the ones who have already shown they care and would enhance our city council. The people of this city carry a lot of power! Esther McIlveen Richmond
Smart meters a safe way to keep rates low Editor: Re: “Do we really need smart meters?” Letters, Sept. 16. Smart meters are a safe and cost-effective way to modernize the electricity system for the beneﬁt of all British Columbians. Upgrading to smart meters will help keep rates low by creating a more efﬁcient power system and reducing power loss. Other beneﬁts include quicker outage detection and power restoration, and allowing customers to track their own near real-time consumption so that they can ﬁnd ways to conserve energy and lower their bills even further. BC Hydro’s smart meters do not contain mercury. In fact, nearly a decade ago, Itron stopped using mercury in their products for the safety and sustainability of the environment.
Smart meters are located outside of the home, and transmit data four to six times a day, in total for less than a minute a day. The cumulative exposure to radio frequency from a smart meter— over its entire 20-year lifespan—is the equivalent to a single 30-minute cell phone conversation. BC Hydro’s Smart Metering Program was designed after a thorough evaluation of the technology and options available and after extensive discussions with other utilities. The program will deliver signiﬁcant beneﬁts to our customers, including $70 million in the next three years alone through lower rates. And there are no plans to introduce time of use rates.

Applepalooza returns with bananas, mutsus and honeycrisps food for the food bank. The project began in 2001 when a group of volunteers picked surplus fruit from peopleâ€™s backyards and gave it to the Richmond Food Bank. Today, the organization grows vegetables and fruit on over three acres of city land in Terra Nova and in the orchard on Gilbert Road. Applepalooza celebrates applesâ€”sit on a haybale and listen to live music by WinterMitts, Da Bhredren, and others, lunch on
apples. And you can taste them at the second annual Applepalooza.

When you ďŹ nd a variety you like, you can pre-order an apple tree for spring planting, or head to the UBC Apple Festival (Oct. 15 and 16, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.) to buy trees.

arts & entertainment Culture Days in Richmond near Culture Days—Canada’s coast-to-coastto-coast celebration of arts and culture—is returning to Richmond Sept. 30 to Oct. 2. This three-day family-friendly event gives everyone a chance to par ticipate in free, hands-on, interactive activities that provide a glimpse into the world of local artists, curators, writers and other creative producers. “Last year, Richmond’s arts and culture community offered the public more events than any other city in B.C., earning us the model status at the organization’s national level,” said Mayor Malcolm Brodie in a news release. “Again, this year, the number and range of events offered is sure to inspire residents of all ages and interests to explore their own creativity.” Experiences range from visiting the home studios of local artists like Aphrodite Blagojevic and Jeanette Jarville to backstage tours of Gateway Theatre and wine and cheese tastings at Lulu Island Winery. The Richmond Cultural Centre is the hub for Culture Days with demos and activities by the Richmond Potters Club, Textile Arts Guild of Richmond, Richmond Gem and Mineral Club, and Richmond Artists’ Life-Drawing Group. The Richmond Public Library, museum, art gallery and arts centre are all taking part. The first public events in the newly opened rooftop garden will also happen during Culture Days with a talk by playwright, Lucia Frangione, and cooking workshops by chef Ian Lai. There are many other events throughout the city that weekend, including the Community Arts Council of Richmond’s “Experience the Arts” at Lansdowne Centre and the inaugural Richmond Lantern Festival in Minoru Park. For more information about Culture Days and the complete list of activities planned in Richmond, visit www. culturedays.ca.

It conditions the body for strength, endurance, ﬂexibility, joint resiliency, and motor skill coordination. Many feel it is solely for bodybuilders; however, every body needs weight training.

Many women have the fear of“bulking up”when, in reality, the training of your muscles actually helps you decrease your size due to the loss of body fat, which takes up approximately three times more space than muscle tissue. It is not uncommon for women to triple their strength and to simultaneously go down two to three pant sizes.This is more permanent weight loss since muscle tissue is what drives the metabolism.

The Minoru Chapel Opera series returns for a third season this fall with three opera companies performing. On the ﬁrst Wednesdays of October, November and December, locals and opera enthusiasts from across Metro Vancouver are invited to both matinee and evening performances as one of Richmond’s beloved heritage sites opens its doors to opera.

Making peace with past
Book Club Shelley Civkin
he debut novel by Margaret Dilloway called How to be an American Housewife is a wise, sad and insightful look into what it’s like for immigrants coming to a new country and feeling like strangers in a strange land. When Shoko, a traditional Japanese woman, marries an American GI and moves to the Unites States, she tries to ﬁt into her adopted culture, with help from a book her husband buys her, aptly called How to be an American Housewife. Urging women
to learn how to cook, clean and interact like an American offers Shoko an acceptable way to integrate. Mostly. As for her American born daughter, Sue, her mother’s advice is at odds with how she thinks life ought to be. It turns out that the secret to middle class happiness is not something you can learn from a book, or even from a mother who is struggling with her own identity and place. Told from the alternating perspective of both women, we see a world that’s full of less-than-textbookperfect situations, from divorce, to single parenthood to secret desires. It turns out that Shoko is hiding her own secret, one that has tormented her for years. When she plans to go back to Japan to visit her estranged brother Taro, to make things right, she ﬁnds out her heart condition is too risky to allow her to
travel. So she sends her daughter Sue and her granddaughter Helena instead. What they discover there changes and enriches their lives in ways they couldn’t have imagined. I particularly appreciated Shoko’s heart condition as a metaphor for her inner struggle to make peace with the past. This ﬁrst novel is utterly captivating in every way and offers the reader a humourous, yet sometimes sad look into Japanese and American life, and how families interact when one person strays from the norm. A delightful read and an author to keep your eye on. For other popular reading suggestions check out Richmond Public Library's website at www.yourlibrary.ca/ goodbooks/.

Fin exempliﬁes fun at Hockey Day Canuck mascot popular figure at Richmond Minor’s opening day celebrations by Don Fennell Sports Editor With respect to Roberto Luongo, Alex Burrows, Ryan Kesler and the Sedins, there may not be a more popular Vancouver Canucks figure than the NHL team’s mascot Fin. Without saying a word, the lanky Orca whale was overwhelmed by photo and autograph requests at the first annual Hockey Day at Richmond Minor Saturday at the Richmond Ice Centre. Fin took it all in stride, never once refusing a request. “It was awesome to have Fin at our event,” said Richmond Minor public relations director Kirk Darbyshire. “For a lot of the kids, I really think he was the highlight of the day. It was pretty cool seeing the kids light up when he arrived.” Fin’s presence may have even helped to surpass Richmond Minor Hockey’s fundraising goal of $2,500 for Canuck Place Children’s Hospice. The majority of funds were generated through donations and raffle ticket sales. “The amount of corporate support Richmond Minor has is fantastic and illustrates the association’s efforts to connect with the community,” said Darbyshire. “We really appreciate all the community support we get, and we don’t lose cite as a non-profit organization to also give back to worthwhile causes such as Canuck Place. Hockey is an expensive sport to play and we’re proud to have recently supported Richmond KidSport

through our first annual golf tournament.” Establishing and maintaining strong community ties are important to Richmond Minor Hockey, said association president Gary Lok. Since assuming his role on the 21-member
board 18 months ago, Lok and his fellow directors have made it a priority to develop new partnerships and rekindle relationships with the likes of the Richmond Sockeyes, the local junior hockey club whose players were front and centre as volunteers at Saturday’s events. “We’ve done a lot to foster our relation-
ships in the community,” said Lok. “It’s part of the evolution of hockey. Kids in the community learn to skate and play hockey and develop their skills, and then some want to play at a higher level. We’re fortunate to have a local junior team that can give them that opportunity.” See Page 21

Junior High School Football â€˘Hugh Boyd Trojans (1-1) versus Moscrop Panthers (2-0), 3:30 p.m. kickoff on Wednesday, Sept. 21 at Hugh Boyd Park Trojans were embarrassed by the result. â€œI think we were a little too conďŹ dent coming in after our first game (a 33-7 win over Pitt Meadows Marauders), but we now know what it takes to be up there with the top guys,â€? said Hugh Boyd coach Brock Aura. â€œIt was very humbling and the guys were ready to work (back at practice) on Friday.â€? Aura didnâ€™t recall such an lopsided loss since he began coaching, but as a player at Hugh Boyd was once on the receiving end of a 48-0 score. He said itâ€™s not a good feeling.

â€œI remember getting whaled time and time again and not wanting to play the rest of the game,â€? he said. â€œBut the team stuck together, and as Grade 12s we played at the AAA level and did pretty well. Itâ€™s a question of heart.â€? Aura, who had a long talk with his dad as he usually does after each game, is encouraged by how the current Trojans have responded. â€œA few of the guys even instituted optional conditioning after our regular practice,â€? he said. â€œI think the loss has made them hungry and overall it could end up being very positive. Sometimes after a loss like that you see guys quitting, but weâ€™ve actually had a few more guys join the team. The guys seem to have really rallied together and if practice this week is any indication I think weâ€™ll be ready to play today. A loss like that is a bit of hunger in the belly.â€?

But Moscrop wonâ€™t be a pushover. The Panthers are 2-0 after a 56-12 win

Rapids seek to build off summer success The Richmond Rapids head into a new swim season anxious to build on summer success. Head coach Rob Pettifer is implementing new ideas for training while also greeting new swimmers in the pool and new additions to his coaching staff. The last two months were ďŹ lled with successes in all aspects of the Rapidsâ€™ program. At the B.C. AAA Provincial Championships in Victoria the Rapids placed ďŹ fth overall in a highly-contested ďŹ nish. With 10 provincial championship gold medals and a slew of
personal bests, Rapid swimmers were in the hunt the whole way. At the Canadian Age Group Championships in Montreal, the boysâ€™ 15-year-old medley relay team clinched gold. The efforts of Brandon de Costa (15), Liam Kell (15), Nicolaas Dekker (15) and Michael Jakac-Sinclair (14) was the culmination of a yearâ€™s hard work. On the individual side, Dekker (15) won silver medal and Celine Hong (14) and Hau-Li Fan (13) both received bronze medals. Dekker was selected to compete
One on one
at the Western Canada Summer Games in Kamloops, a meet pitting the best 17-and-under swimmers in the western provinces and territories. He won ďŹ ve medals: silvers in the 100 and 200 butterďŹ‚y and bronzes in the 100 and 200 backstroke and the 200 IM. He was also on the gold winning relay team. â€œItâ€™s amazing to see what the swimmersâ€™ and staffâ€™s hard work has accomplished,â€? said Pettifer. â€œWe look forward to continuing that effort through to next season.â€?

> 12th Anniversary of Lingyen Mountain Temple
Temple ‘like a big family’
undreds of people from all different backgrounds participated in a pilgrimage for the 12th anniversary of the Lingyen Mountain Temple last Sunday.
The goal of the pilgrimage was “to show respect and to repent,” said Zhi Around Town Yin, one of the Amanda Oye volunteers. “We can eradicate our negative karma,” he said. The day started off with a prayer, asking Guan Yin to bless the pilgrimage and the pilgrims. Then, after a demonstration by the Buddhist youth, the pilgrims traveled around the temple and garden, making their way back to the centre courtyard where they started. There was another prayer to end the pilgrimage, than everyone was given a vegetarian meal. A lot of the people who came attend regularly, but “some are new,” said one of the temple’s Masters. “It’s a very good chance to help them (get to) know the temple,” she said. “A Buddhism temple is just like a big family. We invite anybody of any religion to come … everyone is welcome.” Everyone at the anniversary celebration had a chance to visit a wishing area before they left. “We encourage people to pray, sincerely pray, for their family, their country, anything,” the Master said.
