By Scott Costen

Preparations were underway at Queens Place Emera Centre (QPEC) today as Liverpool, Nova Scotia, gets ready to host the Feb. 16-23 World Junior Curling Championships.

A total of 20 teams will compete for international curling glory during the week-long tournament. Canada, the defending men’s and women’s champion, is hosting the event for the first time in a decade.

Queens Place Emera Centre (QPEC) is preparing to host the 2019 World Junior Curling Championships. The arena was previously the site of the 2014 Canadian Junior Curling Championships.
Hacks and rings were going in today. Huge track lighting fixtures were put in yesterday.
Specially designed rings will be used in this year’s WJCC, a departure from the traditional blue, white and red.
The Queens County Museum has mounted a display of local curling history in the QPEC lobby.
