Local communities remember their war heroes Nov. 11 By TARA GESNER

Community – Like other Canadians, residents of Beckwith, Carleton Place and Mississippi Mills observe Remembrance Day every year on Nov. 11 to remember the men and women of their armed forces who died in the line of duty. First World War hostilities formally ended on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month. Beginning with a parade of veterans, Legion members and many more, Carleton Place’s Remembrance Day service begins at 11 a.m. at the cenotaph, which is located in Memorial Park beside the library. Legion president George Wood said the ceremony would be carried out in the traditional manner: reading of the honour roll, playing of the Last Post – the traditional salute to the

fallen soldier, laying of wreaths, gun salute and two minute wave of silence. “We always get a large turnout,” he said, “and the last couple of years the weather has been nice.” This year’s Silver Cross representative is Peggy Dunlop. She will lay a wreath on behalf of all mothers who lost children in the military service of their nation. Following the service an open house will be held at the Legion Hall, 177 George St. The town’s cenotaph was unveiled in 1924. The local Captain Hooper Chapter of the Imperial Order of the Daughters of the Empire (IODE) was instrumental in its construction. Thirty-six years later (1960), the two wings (sides) were added to honour those who gave their lives during the Second World War. One name was added years later for the Korean War, in ad-

dition to the titles of NATO and Peacekeeping. The war memorial was officially rededicated during a ceremony held on Oct. 2, 2010. An event this year in June marked the official arrival of two Howitzer guns at Memorial Park. The Remembrance Day service in Beckwith takes place at 1 p.m. at the Beckwith Park Cenotaph, which is located at 1319 9th Line. Nine residents, including one woman, paid the supreme sacrifice for their home and country during the First World War. An additional three heroes lost their lives in the Second World War. The 2013 Silver Cross representative for Beckwith is Nora Currie. Three ceremonies are planned for Mississippi Mills. Clayton and Pakenham will conduct services at their respective cenotaphs at 11 a.m., with Almonte’s ceremony at 2 p.m.

The cenotaph in Pakenham is located on the grounds of Pakenham Public School (County Road 29), and Clayton’s cenotaph, dedicated in 1998, can be found on Tatlock Road (kiddycorner to Gemmill’s General Store). The war memorial in Almonte, featuring R. Tait McKenzie’s sculpture ‘The Volunteer’, is located beside the Almonte Old Town Hall on Bridge Street. The cenotaph recently underwent cleaning and repair, and two new names were added to the First World War section. Almonte’s service on Nov. 11 begins with a parade, which takes shape at the Legion on Bridge Street around 1:30 p.m., before proceeding to the cenotaph. “The parade consists of the Legion’s colour party, local veterans and youth representatives from Girl Guides and Boy Scouts,” said Branch 240 presi-

dent John Souter. Above the traditional reading of the honour roll, the Rouse bugle call and firing party, there is the impressive 155 mm howitzer from CFB Petawawa that signals the start and end of the period of silence. “It’s not confirmed yet, but we are hoping to have Vintage Wings from Gatineau do a flyover in Almonte and Pakenham,” said Souter. This year’s Silver Cross representative for Almonte is Lorna Merrithew. “Hopefully, we have a sunny day,” said Souter. “Our veterans are very old. It’s hard enough for them without the wind, cold and rain.” The Almonte Legion will host a reception following the ceremony. Members of the public are invited to pay their respects to the area’s veterans at all Remembrance Day services.

Bone marrow drives to be held for teen requiring transplant all participate and register. Mackenzie’s dad, Doug, is an alumnus of the Bears and Blue Wings. Doug said Mackenzie is a big volunteer in the community and encourages people to organize bone marrow drives at their high schools, through their work, unions or sports organizations. “She (Mackenzie) has been a great volunteer and a really great daughter. When our family friend was dealing with breast cancer she made bracelets and raised over $1,600 for breast cancer research,� he explained. “That is one of the many things she has done over her 16 years.� OneMatch has a simple system in place for those wishing to organize or take part in a bone marrow drive, which includes a school as-

sembly with a 15-minute presentation by a OneMatch representative. To register in the system, all donors have to do is give a simple cheek swab sample. “It is very important to Mackenzie and our family to help the OneMatch program grow, for our daughter as well as the next person and family who will require the use of the bone marrow registry,â€? Doug stated. â€œâ€ŚBy helping Mackenzie as a potential donor, you could also help save the life of someone who will be near and dear to someone.â€?

Community – Becoming a bone marrow donor can save a life, maybe Mackenzie Curran’s. The 16-year-old teen who attends Regiopolis-Notre Dame Catholic High School in Kingston, has myelodyplastic syndrome (MDS) and requires a lifesaving bone marrow transplant. To spread the word about the importance of bone marrow donation, two upcoming ‘Get Swabbed’ bone marrow drives will be held in Smiths Falls and Brockville. “These (drives) are being held through Canadian Blood Services and its OneMatch Stem Cell and Bone Marrow Network,� explained Mackenzie’s aunt, Pattie Curran Tuck. “We are looking for males 17 to 35 in hopes of find-

Studio Theatre brings back old-fashioned storytelling in ‘Voices’ By JOAN SONNENBURG

Arts – “Life is all about finding a way to communicate with one another�, says Sue Tennant of Studio Theatre in Perth. “By using one of our senses - body language, sign, Braille, blissymbolics, or spoken word – we all find a way to communicate.� Once this communication was personal, one individual to another. But today we live in an age of so-called mass communication, when we have only to press a button to learn what’s going on in any part of the world, listen to a favourite song, or tune into an exciting movie or TV show. The intimacy of the old-fashioned singer and storyteller seems to have all but died out. Rarely do we hear someone ask, “Tell me a story,� or “Sing me a song.�

But the Studio Theatre and Kelly’s Flowers are offering just such an experience in ‘Voices.’ On Sunday, Nov. 10 at 3 p.m., novelist Tim Wynne-Jones and singer Jenny Whiteley will take you on a journey of life as they see and have seen it. Here is an opportunity to sit back, relax be entertained in words and song by two award-winning wordsmiths. Tim Wynne-Jones will be reading from and discussing Blink and Caution, his most recent award winning novels. Thriller, crime novel, and social commentary – it is a story charged with tension and suspense in which two compelling characters are caught up in a dangerous blackmail scheme. Tim is also the author of many children’s, young adult and adult novels.

A proud officer of the esteemed Governor General’s award, Tim is currently the writer in residence at Queen’s University. He lives with his wife Amanda Lewis in Brooke Valley a short distance from Perth on 76 acres of scrubby swamp land. They have three grown children. He is also a musician who loves rock and roll and getting together with his favourite local band mates from The Usual Suspects. Jenny Whiteley is a gifted singer whose lyrics capture the soul of real-life experiences. Her evocative self-titled debut album won the Juno Award for Best Roots and Traditional Recording: Solo in March 2001. She is the daughter of renowned blues musician Chris Whiteley. Being prodigy of a mu-

sical family, her destiny was determined long ago, and her peers have recently recognized Jenny’s incredible voice. Prairie Oyster invited her to sing on their re-released Man in the Moon, a song written by Jenny’s father Chris. She also sings background vocals on Sarah Harmers hit song, Basement Apartment. She has been awarded showcase opportunities at a number of exclusive North American festivals, including the Ontario Council of Folk Festivals, the North American Folk Alliance and South by Southwest Music Festival and conference. She lives with her husband Joey Wright and their daughters in nearby Maberly, Ontario. So on Sunday afternoon, Nov. 10 at 3 p.m., switch off your TV, leave

your iPad at home, and come sit in the intimate dark comfort of the Studio Theatre, and let Tim and Jenny tell you a story and sing you a song. And don’t forget, even if you have a mobility issue, Studio Theatre is now fully accessible. Tickets for this event are available Kelly’s Flowers, 63 Gore St. E in Perth, 613-267-7065. Tickets are $20 and payable by cash, debit, or credit card. They will also be available at the Studio Theatre box office the night of the performance. Cash only.

Arts – On Friday evening, Nov. 8, the first of seven community theatre groups will heed the traditional stage manager’s call and take their places as the lights come on at the start of Eastern Ontario Drama League’s (EODL) 45th annual One Act Play Festival. The festival will run through the weekend with performances on Friday night, Saturday afternoon and Saturday evening. These seven community theatre groups from across eastern Ontario will be competing for a variety of prestigious awards. A Green Room is held following the evening performances of Nov. 8 and 9 where the audience can mingle with the casts and crews of the competing groups over drinks and snacks. The Green Room is the social centre of the festival where old friends meet and new friends are made, where disasters and triumphs are hilariously relived, new events excitedly discussed and old ones avidly re-examined. The festival’s finale is the celebrated brunch and awards ceremony where the competing groups await the adjudicator’s decisions on awards with eager anticipation. The plays are adjudicated by a recognized professional in the Ontario drama world. This year, the adjudicator is Carolee Mason, particularly noted in her teaching of drama, working with drama students and young people as well as her experience as a director of drama and musicals. With her wealth of experience as a communicator, evaluator and instructor she is an invaluable adjudicator. The adjudicator gives a brief public evaluation of each group’s production at the end of each performance which the audience is invited to hear. A more detailed evaluation is given to the casts and crews following the public evaluation. The plays will be performed in the Merrickville Community

2014 Mitsubishi Mirage: Named for what it turns gas stations into

The vehicles I road-test for these reviews (yes itís a tough job, but Iím willing to

make sacrifices) come from two main sources: press fleets owned by the Canadian

head offices of the manufacturers and local dealerships. I prefer to use dealership

units whenever possible because they more closely represent the trim and equipment level that you or I shop for, whereas press fleets are made up of fully loaded higher-end models. If you are interested in learning more about any of these vehicles, check out

the manufacturersí websites or better yet, call your local dealership and speak to one of their knowledgeable staff. Itís the ultimate in interactive information gathering. The 2014 Mitsubishi Mirage I enjoyed for this review came from the friendly folks at

Rivington Mitsubishi in Carleton Place. Mitsubishiís latest entry into the Canadian market, the Mirage has now landed on dealer lots and is finding early acceptance from buyers looking for fuel economy and affordability in a stylish and

safe package. The base model leaves the driveway at $12,348 for the ES trim package with a five-speed manual transmission. My SE tester (the only other trim level available) equipped with a continually variable transmission (CVT) and the $500 convenience

THE EMC - 5 - Thursday, November 7, 2013

package came in at $17,098 before destination fees, dealer prep, or taxes. Power comes from a 1.2 L dual overhead cam three-cylinder gasoline engine rated at 74 hp. The front wheels are driven through either a five-speed stick or a CVT. While this is no muscle car or even an RVR cross-over, it doesnít pretend it is either. With the CVT acceleration was acceptable for a sub 100hp subcompact. I took the Mirage up to just over 100 kph with surprisingly low levels of road or engine noise. Its short wheel base and overall length (96î and 149î respectively) combined with a very small turning circle makes the Mirage very easy to move through an urban setting. No worries about being able to find a large parking spot or a wide opening in tight traffic. Inside, a proportionally taller roof line gives the Mirage ample headroom for even 6+ footers and full length side doors and a low step in makes entry and exit reasonable for this class. The

tall roof line extends the entire length creating great cargo space especially with the rear seats folded down. Unexpected touches such as heated seats and a fully automatic climate control system nicely provided some creature comforts in a simple yet functional interior. On the highway some body-sway is noted with stronger cross winds and/or hard cornering maneuvers. Seats were supportive, engine noise or vibration was minimal and for an entry level vehicle it would be hard to find a longer feature list for the money. Standard seven air-bags, anti-lock brakes, active stability and traction control, a brake override and assist system all bring a higher than expected level of passenger safety to the table. Exterior styling is reminiscent of the Honda Fit and seems to keep up with current auto fashion trends. Forward and rearward visibility is better than most sub-compacts and while the majority of driving most Mirages will see

will be in urban centres or commutes, this vehicle would make a suitable regional tourer. The big news for Mirage fans is the fuel economy. The three-cylinder sips fuel at an incredibly light rate. A CVT equipped Mirage is pegged by NRCan at 5.3 L/100 km city and 4.4 L/100 km highway (53.3 mpg 64.2 mpg respectively). US EPA ratings converted to imperial gallons are 44.4 mpg city and 52.8 mpg highway. Either way the Mirage is deep into hybrid mileage territory without the extra price tag those gasoline/ electrics carry. Mirage is backed by the best warranty in the industry; a 10 yr/160,000 km power-train and 5 yr/100,000 km new vehicle warranty with a 5 yr/unlimited distance roadside assistance plan. So for a second family car or a first for younger buyers, the Mirage has all the tools to handle day to day commuting and a little fun on the weekend without breaking either the purchase bank or monthly fuel bill.

Do you relish the opportunity to use your research, art, design, and written communication skills to inspire all of us to help our planet? Then this poster contest is for you. As part of the Mississippi Valley Field Naturalists (MVFN) plastic bag reduction campaign, we invite all local elementary and secondary school students, including those who are homeschooled to participate in our Refuse-To-Use Poster Contest designed to reduce the use, locally, of singleuse plastic bags. Because they are so lightweight and buoyant and take hundreds of year to break down, plastic bags escape into fields, forests, rivers and oceans, wreaking havoc on millions of animals and their habitats around the world. MVFN’s plastic bag reduction effort began earlier this year with the goal to raise awareness of the harm caused globally by the release of plastic bags into the natural environment. During this campaign, MVFN volunteers surveyed local businesses about plastic bag use and conducted smallscale surveys of numbers of people using re-useable containers vs. plastic bags for their shopping. MVFN volunteers also hosted a series of information tables at events such as the Almonte and Pakenham fairs, Celt-

Great Big Sea frontman Alan Doyle enjoys addition of solo career

Submitted photo

A documentary chronicling the making of Alan Doyle’s, above, solo record is set to air nationwide on CMT on Friday. His band, Great Big Sea, will be returning to Ottawa on Nov. 17 for a performance at the NAC. this,� Doyle added. One of the songs he personally prizes is Where I Belong, a ballad Doyle characterizes as having special meaning to him because it speaks to where he is from - a place which shaped him and gave him courage to chase his dream. “It’s about home in the capital ‘H’

sense, to know you have a home to go,� he said. “There is nothing quite like it.� The creation of Boy on Bridge took him from the bustling streets of Toronto to the country-strong empire of Nashville – with a little help along the way. The documentary, produced by Take

a compilation album of both pop and folk songs. When Doyle reflects, it all seems so surreal. “Yeah, I’m still here,� he joked. Boy on Bridge is set to air on CMT Canada this Friday (Nov. 8) night at 9 p.m. ET/PT, and Great Big Sea will be performing at the NAC on Sunday, Nov. 17. They’re also performing to a sold out crowd in Brockville on Saturday, Nov. 16 at the Brockville Arts Centre. The solo album is available at stores such as HMV and Costco, or available for order online on Doyle’s website at

Arts – There is a scene in Alan Doyle’s documentary where the Canadian musician tosses rocks over a bridge. It is the same bridge he stood on numerous times as a youngster in his hometown of Petty Harbour, NL, often wondering where life would take him. Fast forward to the present and Doyle is the lead singer of the muchloved Canadian folk-rock band Great Big Sea, while simultaneously experiencing his first solo music career. But it didn’t come without its waves of highs and lows. A feature-length documentary, entitled Boy on Bridge, shows the audience a raw portrayal of Doyle as a musician apart from his role in Great Big Sea. Doyle said he hopes those who watch it understand his drive and passion for music. “It would be great if people could look at it and see the wanderlust and curiousity that I have, and see where it came from, and how grateful I am because of it,� he said. The title of the album is a nod to a film credit he was given during his childhood when he was asked to be an extra for TV movie A Whale for the Killing, filmed partly in Petty Harbour. The idea of pursuing a solo career had been brewing for some time, he said, and ultimately saw the musician tap into his love of classic rock and country music while exercising his musical imagination over a two-year period. Some of the recording was actually done on Doyle’s laptop. “There’s always something that has to be heard or something that needs to be said,� he said. Doyle said while he knows how to play some instruments, such as the guitar, mandolins and percussion, all of which he played on the album. He also played instruments he’s been learning, such as the banjo, piano, and accordion. “I’m very much still a student of music,� he said. “All my life, I’ve wanted to do

the Shot Productions Inc., sees Doyle teaming up with musical legends and friends to shape the album, including Newfoundland folk singer-songwriter Ron Hynes, Jim Cuddy of Blue Rodeo, indie artist Hawksley Workman, his Robin Hood and Republic of Doyle co-star Scott Grimes, Grammy awardwinning Gordie Sampson, notable television composer Mike Post, and good friend and long-time musical partner Russell Crowe. His first film credit back in Petty Harbour would be the first one on his actor’s list. The musician-turned-actor now has a few more under his belt, such as playing Allan A’Dayle, one of Crowe’s Merry Men in the 2010 Ridley Scott-directed movie Robin Hood, as well as recurring tough guy and undercover cop Wolf Redmond in the CBCproduced and Newfoundland-based hit action TV show, Republic of Doyle. He also has a role in Crowe’s 2014 film, Winter’s Tale, as Dingy – a thief. Doyle was just recently named to play the villain Senator Gideon Robertson in a film adaptation of Strike!, a musical stage production that brings the 1919 Winnipeg General Strike to life. He’s also produced albums for actor Russell Crowe and Juno Award winners The Irish Descendants, and delivered soundtracks for the movie Young Triffie’s Been Made Away With, and the television series Hatching, Matching, & Dispatching. When not on stage, Doyle is in high demand as a producer and arranger, sharing his love for music with many across Canada and around the world. Doyle said the band always looks forward to coming back to Ottawa, a city, he said, which has always supported the band and brought out thousands of fans looking to have a good time. Great Big Sea is widely known for playing lively rock interpretations of sea shanties and original feel-good songs such as Ordinary Day, Consequence Free, I Am King, End of the World, and island jigs including Paddy Murphy, Lukey’s Boat, and Captain Kidd, just to name a few. In celebration of their 20th anniversary as a band, they recently released

War Amps marks 95th anniversary this year DEAR EDITOR: I belong to Operation Legacy, a group of members of The War Amps Child Amputee (CHAMP) Program dedicated to preserving Canada’s military heritage and teaching other young people how to carry on the remembrance message. This year, The War Amps is celebrating a major anniversary. Ninetyfive years ago, First World War amputee veterans formed The Amputations Association of the Great War. The name was changed to The War Amputations of Canada when Second World War amputees joined their ranks. These men later started the CHAMP Program to assist young amputees like me. In addition to having had the privilege of learning about Canada’s military heritage from a young age, I also know what it is like to live without a limb – a strong bond that I share with war amputee veterans. Because of this, I feel it is my duty to ensure that the stories of war are preserved and its lessons never forgotten. Operation Legacy is a commitment to preserving our national mili-

tary heritage, and by doing so, we honour the men and women who have fought for us – even given their lives – to protect our rights and freedoms. And by passing on the stories of horror that these heroes have endured, it reminds us that war is something we never wish to face again. We remember that is better to choose peace over war and that standing up for what we believe in is what makes us Canadians. Champs in Operation Legacy wish to spread this message not only to the adults whose parents perhaps lived through war, or left a war-torn country to come to Canada, but also our youth, as they will be the ones who need to pass on the remembrance to the next generation so that we ensure that the legacy of our veterans is never forgotten. I encourage everyone – particularly young people – to learn more through The War Amps Military Heritage Series documentaries, which are available at a cost-recovery price at Jamey Irwin Operation Legacy member

Food for thought Editorial – The Leeds, Grenville and Lanark District Health Unit released the results of their Nutritious Food Basket costing for 2013 and it certainly gives some food for thought. This is something done by all public health units in Ontario where the price of 67 food items is calculated from grocery stores in the tri-county area. The results put into perspective just how much it can take to feed a family of four (two adults and two children). They found that the cost is $178 per week or $772 per month, which reflects a nine per cent jump in the cost of food since 2010. We are all aware the cost of living has gone up, whether it’s a heat or hydro bill or the price of gas at the pumps. Part of the problem is that as families get bigger and costs grow, salaries don’t often rise along with them. According to the health unit, it becomes more difficult not only to purchase food but make healthy choices while also trying to pay rent and find the money for transportation. In fact, a 2011 Canadian Community Health Survey noted that 9.3 per cent of people in the tri-county said they couldn’t afford to put all the food they needed on the table. That’s why it’s so important to support local food banks and organizations such as the Salvation Army. While food banks are always in need of donations, as the holidays near, they are experiencing a much greater strain on their inventory. One of the largest seasonal initiatives, the Build a Mountain of Food Drive recently had its launch for another year and will be out at grocery stores throughout the area in November and December to collect food items for those who need it. They will be set up in Carleton Place, Almonte, Perth, Lanark, Smiths Falls, Westport, Elgin, Portland, Merrickville, Athens and Delta. Consider donating a few cans of non-perishable food items or filling a bag for your local food bank. Pay it forward. You never know when you may need their services.

Remembrance Day held in high regard for Mary and family Lifestyle – Mother was always concerned that we five children didn’t have the proper respect for the true meaning of Remembrance Day. The school at Northcote with only 18 pupils, had no piano, and the few county officials were already involved with the ceremony in the town of Renfrew, and so there was little in the way of observance at the school. For this reason, Mother, each year, piled all of us into the Model T and headed into town, where, as she put it, there would be a proper and fitting ceremony to remember those who had fallen in the First World War. Mother’s three young brothers had all been in the army, even though Mother said they weren’t old enough to vote, but they were old enough to fight in the war. By the way Mother talked about her brothers, I wondered if they perhaps had won the war singlehandedly! Without fail, the weather was always dreadful on Remembrance Day. We would drive through freezing rain or snow, it seemed, and at a very young

age, I wondered if the terrible weather had something mysterious to do with the somberness of the day. And so when we headed into Renfrew, we were bundled up like mummies, with hats and mitts, and winter boots. We certainly wouldn’t have the luxury of wearing slacks on such a day, and even though I usually hated them with a passion, I was very grateful for the heavy navy blue fleece-lined bloomers over our long underwear and long beige ribbed stockings. But it never mattered how much clothes we had on, there was always a piercing wind rolling down Raglan Street where the parade took place at the war memorial, and it penetrated our bodies and had us shivering like leaves on tree. The children from the Renfrew schools always marched to the place where the ceremony was to be held. We five country children were very aware that we weren’t really a part of a group, but that certainly didn’t matter to our mother.

She would wait until the town school pupils had formed perfect lines, neither looking left or right, and then she would march the five of us right up to the front row, and position us so that we were actually an extension of the line-up of town kids. My older sister Audrey was most embarrassed, but her protests did nothing to sway our Mother. The town children had sheets of music, and we would shudder in embarrassment when we would see Mother walk right over to a teacher, whisper in her ear, and then point to us, and then we would see her head back to us with five sheets of music!

prehension, someone from the town ranks of pupils always fainted. Just as sure as death and taxes, as soon as the person leading the program opened his mouth, one or two would topple over. If the overcome person was a girl, the teacher would rush up, fan her with the sheet music, and if that didn’t help, she would be carried off with her eyes rolled into the back of her head. But if it was a boy pupil who had succumbed to the pressures of the day and toppled over, he was left to lie there until he either revived on his own, or the ceremony ended. Emerson said, on the way home, “those Renfrew kids are a sickly lot...certainly none of us ever fell over in a dead faint.” After all the war songs had been sung, out of the crowd would come a very old man with a shiny trumpet tucked under his arm. He would walk the full length of the parade area, and he wore a soldier’s uniform that obviously had been borrowed.

covered legs. He was very elderly, and Mother, ever the one to add drama to any situation, said he probably fought in the Boer War. He played the trumpet loud and clear as a bell, and there wasn’t a dry eye in the crowd! The Renfrew children were the first to march off the parade grounds, and Emerson, not to be outdone by kids from town, turned on the heal of his gum-rubbers, and with his arms swinging, marched back down the street to where Mother had parked the Model T. On the road back to Northcote we would be subjected once again to Mother’s stories of how her own brothers went off to war, and often her voice would catch with the memory. But we knew she was filled with pride, and I too would be caught up in the stories, and would think of those uncles, who returned safely from battle, and unscarred...and I would think I was related to true war heroes. And then I would know, even though I was very young, why Remembrance Day was so important to our mother. • Advertising rates and terms and conditions are according to the rate card in effect at time advertising published. • The advertiser agrees that the publisher shall not be liable for damages arising out of errors in advertisements beyond the amount charged for the space actually occupied by that portion of the advertisement in which the error occurred, whether such error is due to negligence of its servants or otherwise... and there shall be no liability for non-insertion of any advertisement beyond the amount charged for such advertisement. • The advertiser agrees that the copyright of all advertisements prepared by the Publisher be vested in the Publisher and that those advertisements cannot be reproduced without the permission of the Publisher. • The Publisher reserves the right to edit, revise or reject any advertisement.

Insecticide linked to mass die-off of bees throughout Ottawa Valley


Dust is kicked up from a field tilled in Dunrobin. Grain farmers and beekeepers agree neonicotinoids are killing insects in mass numbers. They disagree whether “planter dust” is doing it or the crops – contaminated throughout – are poisoning them during pollination. Carleton between Pakenham and Arnprior. He has been an apiculturist since the mid 1970s when he took over his father-in-law’s farm. It supplements his income, along with driving a bus and one-time pursuits such as lambing. But beekeeping didn’t supplement his income last winter. “It was a wake up call,” said Polk, who is happy to produce 30,000 pounds of honey a year. He managed just 2,000 this year. “I’ve never experienced anything like this before.” Polk is aware of the neonicotinoids debate. He has mixed feelings over farming practices. On the one hand, he knows they must grow more and more efficient to keep up with the competition, including the use of pesticides. On the other hand, he says the relentless pursuit of profit at all costs is having a devastating affect on the natural world. “Farming has changed completely in my lifetime. They don’t even cultivate anymore,” he said. “They are perfecting the bottom line today, but maybe not tomorrow.” However, the die-off on Polk’s property this year had no direct link to neonicotinoids. It was the combination of a Varroa mite infestation and extreme weather. “We didn’t use enough treatment to solve the problem,” he said. “In July we had a cool period. And they never made honey after that.” Others would say neonicotinoids played an indirect role in the decima-

tion. After many years of usage, industrial insecticides are omnipresent: in water, soil, plants and animals such as bees. It could make them more susceptible to parasites and fungi. Polk accepts that the science isn’t out on a cause, but conventional wisdom tells him that the two don’t mix. “I think it’s a contamination but I don’t have any proof of that. There’s a lot of research to do, a lot of unknowns right now,” Polk said. “All I know is that pesticides and bees don’t mix well together. DuPont and Monsanto (companies) do lots of research, but nobody knows the long term.” Beekeepers are anxious for a solution to stave of future losses. Farmers are unwilling to change the status quo for fear of losing profit. That may seem like a strict dichotomy. But according to the Arnprior area’s vice president of the Ontario Federation of Agriculture, Debra Pretty-Straathof, it is more complex. Those who farm corn and soya use neonicotinoids. They are predominately in south western Ontario. Farmers in the Ottawa Valley area include those who require pollination, either because they are growing vegetables or feeding animals on food that flowered. “You will have polar opposites in any group, but we are trying to work together,” Pretty-Straathof said. “Neither side wants to wipe out the other. Everybody wants to help (bees) but

News – About 30 per cent of bee colonies were lost last spring; the second year in a row for mass die-offs. The federal government has linked large-scale farming practices to the decline of insects that pollinate $2 billion worth of fruit and vegetables every year. In September Health Canada’s Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA) issued to farmers a series of recommendations against certain insecticides known as neonicotinoids. Is it enough to recommend against the usage of neonicotinoids? Dwight Foster is a farmer in North Gower. He’s been scratching a living off the land for many years. A grain farmer with 4,000 acres – and a feed lot with 1,500 head of cattle – Foster can’t underestimate how crucial insecticides are to his operation. “The seed treatment is very important for the development of the crops,” said Foster, a man of few words. He said there is no reason to rush to judgment on neonicotinoids; that very little science has been done on the issue in Canada. He wonders if insecticides are killing the bees or something else or a combination of multiple factors. Health Canada blamed last year’s dieoff to weather: one cold snap at the wrong time could devastate colonies. Then there’s exotic mites and fungi shipped in unwittingly or otherwise from far flung parts of the world that attack native bees. Or even if it is insecticide-related, at which point in the farming process do neonicotinoids attack them? Foster’s point is that no one at this stage can say for sure. And for him, the stakes are too high to act without certainty: a neonicotinoid ban would be a deal-breaker. “There’s no reason to throw the baby out with the bath water,” he said. “Without another product in place that does what it does, it would be huge disaster.” Many large-scale farm operations are highly efficient but deeply susceptible to unravelling at the slightest change. Expensive equipment needs to be paid for through expected high yields. The slow eating away at profit that nature caused in the past is, today, replaced by a solid defence against losses – thanks in large part to insecticides. Beekeeper Arnold Polk lives in West

be ingesting them. Health Canada regulators have proposed better labelling on insecticides and require farmers to implement safer seed planting practices. Those moves aren’t enough for beekeepers, who are fewer in number and therefore hold less clout over lawmakers. Another year of mass die-offs could harbour untold calamity for many common foods such as: apples, onions, pears, beans, celery, broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, common peppers, eggplant, tomatoes and much more. However, at this stage it doesn’t seem those welding power are willing to move any time soon. CarletonMississippi Mills MPP Jack MacLaren is a farmer, and sold seed to farmers throughout the region. He lauds the effectiveness of neonicotinoids while reserving judgement until further study is done. “It is commonly used on corn seed to protect against insects and disease. It does work. It helps farmers,” MacLaren said. “Canada has very stringent rules about pesticides.” Still, if further studies show them to be harmful to bees or other animals, MacLaren said he has no problem with an outright ban. R0012325198_0926

nobody wants to have a knee-jerk solution.” She said it is widely accepted among farmers that neonicotinoids are a cause. What is less certain, at least from the beekeepers side, is at what point the insecticides affect pollinators. PMRA is studying contaminated “planter dust.” The hypothesis states that a coating of insecticide on each seed comes off during the farming process. It creates a dust cloud that bees fly though, causing them to ingest the neonicotinoids and die. Anecdotal claims from southern Ontario on this theory reached Polk. “He (a beekeeper) said when (bees) were coming back through the cornfield they were falling like rain, and were in some kind of paralysis state,” Polk said. “They’ve lost hundreds of colonies of bees.” Critics say inhalation of dust plays a less significant role than does consumption. Neonicotinoids could be fused into the seed and, over many years, the soil, and taken up by the plant through the soil to kill insects feeding on them. Ponds and other water spots could be chemical soups after this many years of using insecticides too, adding to chances bees could

Coalition of book lovers bringing one-man show to Perth Arts – Bookworm, the highly acclaimed one-man show that celebrates a love of books, libraries and reading-forpleasure and has brought audiences to their feet in theatres across Canada, will be staged at the Studio Theatre in Perth in a special one-night only presentation on Sunday, Nov. 24 at 7:30 p.m. Written by and featuring Canadian songwriter and actor Corin Raymond, Bookworm is a powerfully moving story of the love shared between a father and son in tragic circumstances and the love of books and storytelling that transcends tensions between them and the adversities they face. MERA director Danny Sullivan, who spearheaded a campaign to bring the production to Perth, said “Bookworm is the kind of show that will make a nonreader want to go and look up stories from Greek mythology and peruse the fiction shelves at the library. At the same time, it will make a book-lover want to go and check out Spiderman.” “I first saw Bookworm at the Kingston Public Library last year, and I thought it was the best thing I’d ever seen in a library. I knew it was something that should come to Perth,” said Sullivan. Although, the Perth and District Union Public Library had heard about the show and were interested in it, they don’t have a space for large public presentations, such as most big-city libraries have. So Sullivan went to work putting together a coalition of sponsors to bring Bookworm to the Studio Theatre, including MERA, Perth & District Union Public Library, the Friends of the Library, the Humm and Backbeat Books and Music. Bookworm is a show that will appeal to all ages. “When I saw it in Kingston, a good proportion of the audience were highschool aged, and you could tell that they were spellbound from the very opening line, like everyone else in the room,” he said. “It appeals naturally to book lovers, but you don’t have to be a book-lover to be inspired by it – though it should come with a warning that it might turn you into a book-lover. Like any good theatrical presentation, though, it is centered around a story.” Bookworm is the story of a father reading to his son, growing up in a library, plus Spiderman, Ray Bradbury, and meeting the Minotaur for the first time just outside Wawa. Storytelling that has comedy, drama, plenty of beauty and life-inspiration, and a climax no one could possibly predict, all wrapped into one powerfully moving act. Dramaturged by TJ Dawe and directed by Morgan Jones Phillips Bookworm was first produced at the Hamilton Fringe Festival in the summer of 2011, and was an immediate hit, winning awards at fringe festivals across Canada, including the London Fringe Festival’s Producer’s Award and Pick of the Fringe at Vancouver’s Fringe. Since then, it has been staged in theatres, public libraries and at storyteller’s and writers festivals, to universally enthusiastic reviews: “Corin Raymond is a storyteller who by the end of the night you’ll have known all your life.” – Brad Wheeler, The Globe and Mail “What a gift. In this one-man show... Corin Raymond recalls a childhood surrounded by his father’s books, which offered comfort, reassurance, and escape from unusually lonely circumstances... Raymond has impeccable timing, and his performance is at once intimate,

openhearted, and evangelical: ‘Reading aloud to someone is a way to cross souls,’ he effuses, making you ache to return to your favourite books, recite poems from memory, and read aloud to someone you love.” – Kathleen Oliver, Georgia Straight, Sept. 6, 2012 “An ode to books and the people who love them, Raymond cleverly mixes everyday autobiography with an inherited love of what lies between the covers of his favourite books. A true story told with passion and grace, Bookworm is for anyone who loves to read, and reread, beloved books. Really, don’t miss this one.” – John Threlfall, CVV Magazine, Aug. 25 to 28, 2012 “Powered by the man’s warmth and wit...Raymond is a natural storyteller... he’s pleasant and the guy you might meet in a bookstore on a rainy afternoon, that wants to talk books...Magic.” (4 Suns) – Colin MacLean, Edmonton Sun, Aug. 21, 2012 “Some storytellers leave you gaping, forgetful of your surroundings and only wanting more. Corin Raymond is this storyteller. It’s well-paced, wellperformed and will have you heading to the first bookstore as you leave the theatre...” (4 stars) – Samantha Power, Vue Weekly, Aug. 20, 2012 Raymond was a guest on CBC radio’s The Next Chapter with Sheelagh Rogers, where he explained that so many books get mentioned in Bookworm that he has produced an appendix itemizing Submitted photo all of the books, stories, poems and other titles referred to in the show. Canadian songwriter and actor Corin Raymond, above, will bring his “I’d come out the show and talk to acclaimed one-man show, Bookworm, to Perth’s Studio Theatre Sun- someone and I’d see they’d been writing day, Nov. 24. on their arm, so I have an appendix that

I can send to people,” Raymond said. Aside from his Bookworm performances, Corin Raymond is a singersongwriter known as one half of the Toronto-based duo The Undesirables. Paper Nickels, his recent live recording with backing band, The Sundowners, was released on two CDs as part of a 144-page hardcover book and made headlines across North-America for Raymond’s unique scheme to fund the recording by collecting thousands of dollars in Canadian-Tire money, enthusiastically donated by fans, friends, strangers and schoolchildren. Born in Winnipeg MB, and raised in southern Ontario, Raymond keeps ties between the two cities close to his heart and throughout his songs, while his career continues to be inspired by a dialogue between them. Raymond grew up in northern Ontario, learning to appreciate the small time from his dad, who raised him after his mother died. His father was a librarian, high-school teacher and bookseller. The pair lived in northern Ontario, north of Ear Falls, near Red Lake. “He exposed me to a lot of culture when I was growing up,” Raymond recalled. “He taught me to love books, theatre and film.” Bookworm is presented at the Studio Theatre in Perth, for one night only, on Sunday, Nov. 24 at 7:30 p.m. Admission is $15 and advance tickets are available from Tickets Please, 39 Foster St. in Perth (Jo’s Clothes), by phone at 613-485-6434 or online at For more information about the production, contact 613-268-2376 or email

Local municipalities to receive source protection grants News – Several municipalities are part of 24 in total who will receive source protection grants totaling at least $1,472,771 to help them implement local actions to protect drinking water sources. This is part of the province’s commitment of $13.5 million over the next three years to help support small, rural municipalities implement their source protection plans.

Drinking Water System. “We are taking care with source-totap protection of drinking water so we never have another Walkerton,” said Environment Minister Jim Bradley. Municipalities across the province are taking steps to protect wellhead areas and water intake zones such as upgrading fuel tanks to provide more protective spill containment and engineering stream banks to protect water from run-off and erosion. Grants range from $18,000 to $100,000. Municipalities have already worked with their partners to identify significant drinking water threats and complete source water protec-

tion plans. Municipalities receiving funding include: County of Lanark ($43,204); Town of Carleton Place ($61,331); Town of Mississippi Mills ($58,568); Town of Perth ($68,694); Town of Smiths Falls ($50,000); Township of Montague ($63,888); Township of Beckwith ($59,534); Township of Elizabethtown-Kitley ($67,016); Township of Rideau Lakes ($62,472); Township of Tay Valley ($54,634); Municipality of North Grenville ($57,518); United Counties of Leeds and Grenville ($52,061); Village of Westport ($73,954); and Village of Merrickville-Wolford ($67,708). Municipalities may be eligible for

an additional collaboration incentive of up to $15,000 if they collaborate with other municipalities: • $5,000 for collaborating with one or two other municipalities • $10,000 for collaborating with three other municipalities • $15,000 for collaborating with four or more municipalities Municipalities will also develop education and outreach programs about threats to their local drinking water supplies and best practices for dealing with these threats. There are 19 source protection regions across the province.

Upper Canada District School Board asks for increase in bus sharing News – The Upper Canada District School Board (UCDSB) and its students have benefitted from increased efficiency by the Student Transportation of Eastern Ontario (STEO) busing consortium. However, trustees recommended the consortium improve its operations even more. Members passed a resolution Oct. 23 asking STEO to undertake a feasibility study to accomplish the consortium’s shared busing targets in a shorter period of time. Statistics released at the board’s regular meeting Oct. 23 suggest the overall capacity rate of buses contracted by STEO is extremely high and that the use of shared vehicles is rising – indicating that UCDSB students are benefiting from an improving operation, said 1st vice-chair Jeff McMillan.

“Staff members at STEO are really working hard to be as efficient as they can,” said McMillan. “We are seeing real growth.” STEO is a consortium established between the Catholic District School Board of Eastern Ontario (CDSBEO) and the UCDSB to administer transportation. STEO transports 35,000 students daily. Statistics provided by STEO and presented at the meeting by McMillan indicate the use of shared busing through the consortium has increased. The number of students riding shared routes has risen from 2.5 per cent last year to seven per cent of the bused population. It represents an increase from 875 last year to 2,500 students this year. Shared busing means that students from both boards

are riding on the same bus at the same time. The number of students riding double bus routes has also increased from eight per cent to 18 per cent of the bused population. This represents an increase in students riding double routes from 2,800 last year to 6,300 this school year. A “double route” means that a single bus accomplishes one run carrying students from one board, then accomplishes a second run carrying students from the other board. Among the other ways the board has benefitted through its participation in the consortium is that STEO has a vehicle capacity rate of 80 per cent. The high rate indicates that STEO is utilizing its fleet effectively. Over the next five years, the goal of

THE EMC - 10 - Thursday, November 7, 2013

STEO is to increase double route busing to 50 per cent of all students transported, and to increase students riding at the same time, same bus to 25 per cent of the bused population. While board members conceded that STEO is improving its operations, trustee Lisa Swan proposed the motion to see if efficiencies could be increased even more. Committee of the Whole also recommended that the Upper Canada District School Board recognize the International Day for People with Disabilities on Dec. 3. The busing matter will come before the board for further discussion on Nov. 13. Submitted by the Upper Canada District School Board.

Many benefits to using rain barrels Community – Rainbarrels are beautiful because they‌ • Store and distribute clean, chemical-free water at no cost • Reduce erosion and sediment loading in local streams/lakes by reducing runoff from your property • Promote infiltration of water into the ground to replenish our groundwater supply • Decrease your water bill if your drinking water is metered It only makes sense to save and use what Mother Nature gives us rather than making the expensive municipal drinking water system or your private well work hard to produce water for gardening. Capturing rainwater In the past two years, the Rideau Valley Conservation Foundation and our local partners have sold 870 barrels at four partnered sales in the watershed. The foundation and the local partners each earned some money for community activities. In addition to that, we know that each barrel captures 220 litres (L) of rainwater per storm event which is then used by the householder in the garden (infiltrating the water into the ground). During each storm event, our 870 barrels capture about 191,000 L of rainwater and stop it from running directly into the surrounding watercourses (a good thing). If we assume six storms per growing season, it means that a total of 1.1 million L of rainwater is diverted from a nasty career of direct runoff

into a much more honorable role of producing flowers, vegetables and kitchen herbs. If we further add the hundreds of other rain barrels sold by other groups in the Rideau Valley, it is reasonable to imagine literally millions more litres of potentially damaging runoff being diverted from the Rideau system for use in beautiful gardens every year. This is indeed a very good thing. Winterizing your rain barrel Now that Thanksgiving’s past and the outdoor furniture is cleaned up (using rain barrel water) and safely tucked away for another season, it’s time to “winterizeâ€? your trusty old rain barrel for longer life and better performance in four easy steps: • Disconnect the eavestrough downspout from the barrel (don’t forget to reconnect a downspout extension to funnel water away from house foundations) • Empty and rinse the rain barrel • Keep the screen, the valves and the hose together in one box • S tore the barrel upside down either outside or in your garage or basement. If you don’t have a rain barrel yet, especially at the cottage, you can pick them up very inexpensively at one of the conservation foundation’s rain barrel sales in late spring 2014.

Local resident considers herself lucky to have cancer society transportation program By GENA GIBSON For Canadian Cancer Society of Lanark, Leeds and Grenville

News – When her husband received a cancer diagnosis in several years ago, Diane Campbell learned the importance of the Canadian Cancer Society’s transportation program. She travelled with Vernon to appointments and treatments, and saw how the volunteer drivers handled their duties with care and patience. Last year, seven years after Vernon died of cancer at the age of 68, Diane received a cancer diagnosis of her own. Living in rural Clyde Forks without a driver’s licence, she knew she would have to rely on the cancer society again. “I love them,” she said of the various drivers who had taken her to Kingston for appointments. “They’re 100-per-cent perfect.” Although Campbell will move to Kingston in mid-November at the request of her children while she undergoes several months of treatments, she has regular doctor appointments, both in Lanark and in Kingston. She said she always asks for five days’ notice, so she can give the drivers time to fit her into their schedules.

Carol Alexander of Tatlock is one of her regular volunteer drivers, and is, according to Diane, “the best thing since sliced bread.” When Alexander was a teacher in Almonte, she taught one of Diane’s children, and now they have created a closer bond through the volunteer-driver program. “It doesn’t matter who I’ve had (driving me),” she stressed. “I just can’t believe how perfect they are – I don’t know how to describe it. “I just appreciate it.” Diane started using the drivers last year, when doctors found cancer between her bladder and her uterus. She had chemotherapy and radiation, and will start chemotherapy treatments in November with a new drug, Yervoy, used to treat melanoma that has spread to other parts of the body. “I consider myself so lucky to have the volunteer drivers,” she stressed. She said that Vernon asked for all donations to go to the volunteer-driver program of the Canadian Cancer Society, and she plans to do the same in her will. She also plans to donate to the Wheels of Hope campaign, which is a fundraising campaign that runs from September to December. Money

raised goes to fund the Canadian Cancer Society’s local transportation program, which is a no-charge service to clients that will take them to and from cancer-related appointments. Diane said the drivers she has are all personable and friendly, and happy to wait at appointments or be available by telephone when the appointment ends. The Canadian Cancer Society’s Lanark, Leeds and Grenville community office covers the area from Gananoque to Cardinal, as well as Lanark County and everything in between. Last year, the transportation program filled 3,560 requests, with drivers covering 299, 518 kilometres to take 339 local clients to their appointments. The program in the tri-county unit cost more than $84,200, as the average cost to take one patient to a round-trip appointment is $60 due to the distances that clients need to travel compared to those in other parts of Ontario. If you would like to help get a local cancer patient to their cancer treatments you can donate to the Wheels of Hope program by calling 613-2671058 or 1-800-367-2913.

UCDSB hosts event to encourage girls to enter trades Nov. 18 to 22 News – The Upper Canada District School Board (UCDSB) is hosting a special event to let young girls know the value of a career in the trades. The board’s Ontario Youth Apprenticeship Program (OYAP), and that of the coterminous board, will host Living the Skilled Life, from Nov. 18 to 22 at the University of Guelph, Kemptville Campus. The event will encourage females in Grade 10 to enter the trades by exposing them to a learning experience in horticulture, welding, and truck and coach diesel mechanic. “There’s a real shortage of tradespeople in Ontario,” said Alex MacDougall, OYAP facilitator for the UCDSB. “Four out of ten new jobs over the next twenty years will be in the trades. By




the year 2020, Canada will be short one million skilled tradespeople and in Ontario alone 26 per cent of the skilled workers will be retiring over the next ten years.” Skilled tradespeople earn competitive wages that can provide a comfortable lifestyle, said MacDougall. During each day of the session, 15 girls from the UCDSB and another 15 from the coterminous board, will gather in groups of ten, and then rotate through demonstrations of each trade to get a feel for it. When participants first arrive, they will be addressed by a third-year female apprentice welder who will give them an idea of what it is like to be a female working in the trades.

Mudds’ youth performers serve up admirable work in Othello ice’ is actually based on a short story by an Italian author. The play revolves around four main characters. Othello, the namesake lead, is a general in the service of Venice. Female performers in male roles dominated the Mudds’ effort. Dayna Stone, as Othello, had a very difficult task with the dialogue-heavy role and handled it admirably. The other central characters are Othello’s new wife Desdemona (Leah West), his lieutenant Cassio (Katie Irvine) and his trusted ensign Iago (Hayley Fortier). Clearly there was a shortage of males willing to tackle such demanding roles. But the young ladies in this production did a good job. Special mention must be made of Fortier’s efforts as Iago. Hers was the most difficult role of all and she handled it flawlessly. So much to say and such a good job saying it! I didn’t detect a single miss and if there was any prompting I couldn’t detect it. The Cole’s Notes

version of the play is as follows. The highly ambitious Iago becomes jealous when Othello promotes Michael Cassio to be his personal aide. He plots against the hero. After Othello elopes with the lovely Desdemona the plot (and plotting) thickens. Murder afoot A dropped handkerchief is central to the story. Othello is tricked into becoming jealous of his beloved Desdemona. As his rage grows he plans to kill her. Murder is afoot as the story reaches its climax. Othello returns to the castle to kill his innocent wife (he eventually smothers her to death). Emilia, Iago’s wife and Desdemona’s devoted maidservant, eventually tells Othello the truth about her (Emilia’s) scheming husband. Regular Mudds’ youth performer Candice Burn also deserves to be singled out for her work as Emilia. She not only handled the demands of the dialogue well but she has a very expressive face.

Her strong effort stood out to me. Evan Sauve as the luckless Roderigo also turned in a solid effort. Roderigo, who lusts after Desdemona, is killed by Iago when the attempted assassination of Cassio (Irvine) fails. I made note that with such an impressive voice Sauve may have a lead role in his future? Besides the main six characters a supporting cast of nine helped make this staging a success. I was also impressed with the brief, but sultry performance, turned in by Lydia Charron as Bianca, Cassio’s jealous lover. As the play reaches its bloody, tragic conclusion a flurry of madness sees Othello deliberately wound Iago. He decides he would rather make Iago suffer in pain rather than finishing him off. Both face punishment for the murders they commit. The conclusion comes suddenly when Othello, wracked with guilt after learning of Desdemona’s innocence, commits suicide with a dagger he

has concealed. Credit to director Mark Piper (he also directed Macbeth two years ago), producer Wendy Jewell and associate producer Janice Bowie (another Mudds’ regular) for bringing this cast together and coaching them so well. Shakespeare’s work is short on scenery and long on discourse. When I think of Othello, I always recall the brilliant work of the late, great African-American actor, singer, athlete and activist Paul Robeson. The staging of Othello on Broadway, with Robeson in the lead, was the longest running production of a Shakespeare

play ever staged along the “Great White Way.” There’s no question the popular play was a major undertaking for a youth theatre troupe. But somehow I think Robeson – and Shakespeare – would be proud of the effort put forth by this young cast in Carleton Place, Ontario more than 400 years after Othello was penned. The production concluded with matinee and evening performances Saturday. For complete information on the Mississippi Mudds and their upcoming shows visit the website: www.mississippimudds. ca.

Arts – The Mississippi Mudds Youth Theatre in Carleton Place took on a major challenge this fall, tackling Shakespeare’s timeless ‘Othello.’ The young actors did a more than credible job of presenting the classic tale of love, jealousy, betrayal and murder. The only downside is that more people didn’t line up for tickets to see the four performances staged in the historic Carleton Place Town Hall Auditorium. I will admit that I went to last Friday’s presentation with no particular expectations. Although Othello is often performed by community theatre groups, it is a challenge for a relatively new youth troupe. Mudds Youth Theatre only began staging productions here in 2009. In fall 2011 the fledgling company presented Shakespeare’s ‘Macbeth’, also a difficult assignment. During the showing of Macbeth I attended the cast worked hard but needed quite a bit of help from

the prompters and experienced some jitters in front of a full house. Hardly surprising given the depth of the material! A smaller audience was on hand for the second of four presentations of Othello last Friday. Just like Macbeth the young Mudds performed in the round, operating on the auditorium floor with a minimum of costumes and props. I left the theatre very impressed. This was a modern telling of the tragic story, something we have come to expect as directors and performers drop the old English and bring William Shakespeare’s wonderful work into the mainstream. One good example is the contemporary film telling of the bard’s popular comedy ‘Much Ado About Nothing.’ Director Joss Whedon’s 2013 movie stars Amy Acker and Alexis Denisof. Anyone familiar with Othello knows it’s pretty heavy going! Believed to have been written in 1603, ‘The Tragedy of Othello: Moor of Ven-

Famous author Alice Munro has Lanark County connection Lifestyle – Last week I spent an enjoyable afternoon interviewing two sisters who are very proud of a famous cousin of theirs and would like more people to know about her connection to this region. Eleanor Henderson and Irene Papworth (nee Chamney) are first cousins of Alice Munro who, on Oct. 10, became the first Canadian woman ever to win the Nobel Prize for Literature. Munro, 82, a native of Wingham, Ontario is just the 13th woman to win the award sponsored by the Swedish society since it was inaugurated 112 years ago. During the awards announcement in Stockholm, Munro was praised as “the master of the contemporary short story.” Her body of fictional work goes back to 1968 and her highly acclaimed first collection of short stories entitled ‘Dance of the Happy Shades.’ She has written many outstanding short story collections since then. Most are set in her native Huron County. Wingham is 50 kilometres from the Lake Huron town of Goderich. Munro’s strong regional focus is considered one of the strengths of her fiction. She currently lives in Clinton, Ontario not far from her hometown. Although the Nobel Prize is undoubtedly her greatest honour, the author also captured the 2009 Man Brooker International Prize (from the UK based Man Group) in recognition of her body of work. In Canada Munro is a three-time winner of the Governor General’s Award for fiction. She has also won other awards presented by organizations in Canada, the

United States and France. In early October she was named as the 2013 recipient of the $25,000 Harbourfest Festival Prize presented by the Toronto International Festival of Authors. Munro told CBC News that she had always considered winning the Nobel Prize “one of those pipe dreams that might happen but probably wouldn’t.” Unfortunately the writer’s health has been poor in recent years and media reports say she is unlikely to attend the actual award presentation ceremony scheduled for Stockholm on Dec. 10. The Nobel Prize, one of the most prestigious in

the literary world, carries a cash prize of eight million Swedish kroner, about $1.2 million US. Little wonder her cousins here are so proud of her. Munro’s accomplishments stand with those of the very best writers in history. She is often called “the English Chekhov.” Munro’s mother was Anne Clarke Chamney. She, Henderson and Papworth share a grandfather, the late George Chamney. Their grandmother Bertha (nee Stanley) was a school teacher. The Chamney girls grew up on the family farm at Scotch Corners on the west side of Mississippi


Lake, 12 km southwest of Carleton Place. The descendants of Irish immigrants the ladies’ great grandfather Edward secured a land grant in Lanark County. Munro’s great grandparents and later her grandparents farmed for decades. Edward Chamney married Ann Code which means the Chamneys, Codes and Stanleys are all related. Among the descendants

are a number of Codes who currently live in Carleton Place and district. Early life Munro’s mother Anne, who also became a schoolteacher, met and married Robert Eric Laidlaw a fox and mink farmer. Earlier in the family history, with opportunities to secure land in Eastern Ontario waning, members of the Code family moved to Huron County, settling near Wingham. It was there that another descendant, Alice Munro, grew up and attended school. She published her first short story as a teenager. Alice went on to study

English and journalism at the University of Western Ontario in nearby London. There she met fellow student James Munro. She left school to marry him. The young couple headed west, first to Vancouver and then, in 1963, to Victoria on Vancouver Island where they opened a book store. Eleanor Henderson notes that the store, which helped revive her cousin’s interest in writing, is still operating. The Munro’s had four children, one of whom died in infancy. They eventually divorced and Alice moved back to Ontario. She later married Gerald Fremlin, a World War II air force veteran who worked as a geographer and cartographer. Fremlin died in April of this year. Henderson, who continued the family tradition by becoming a school teacher, married Eldon Henderson who later served as the mayor of Carleton Place in the 1970s. The couple also had four children. Eleanor has followed her famous cousin’s writing career from afar. Munro did spend some summers at the family farm near Scotch Corners, but Henderson was too young to remember that. Munro herself does remember however! She told Henderson’s oldest son Scott, now the vicepresident of communications for Bell Media in Toronto (including CTV television), about meeting his mother when she (Eleanor) was very young. Scott contacted Munro by

Alice Munro is shown with her cousin Scott Henderson, a Carleton Place native, at the 2007 Giller Awards ceremony in Toronto. Munro won the Giller in 2004. Last month the popular Canadian author received the biggest honour of her out-

standing career when she was named the 2013 recipient of the Nobel Prize for Literature. She is the first Canadian woman to claim the prestigious award and just the 13th female winner in the 112-year history of the honour.

mail when he was 14 to introduce himself. The author is too busy to be in regular contact with her extended family although she has stayed in touch with Henderson’s cousin Muriel in Perth, the daughter of her Uncle Joe Chamney. Scott Henderson’s letter prompted a Christmas message from Munro. In the letter to Eleanor she expressed delight at hearing from him. “I think Scott believes we never met,” she wrote her Carleton Place cousin. “But of course we did. I remember you when you were about six. You had blonde hair and I think brown eyes, small bones and delicate features.” Munro’s comments about his mother as a young girl surprised Scott. So much so that he wrote about it in an article he penned about Munro which was published by the Toronto Star in 2001. In the newspaper column he says he was even more surprised to learn that “many of Alice’s characters and settings were often based in reality and, in some instances, my reality too.” Scott Henderson has since met his second cousin in person. They were photographed together in 2007 at the Giller Awards ceremony in Toronto. Munro captured the 2004 Giller prize for her book ‘Runaway’ a series of short stories exploring the lives of women their loves, desires and relationships. See COLUMN page 24

This 1965 Ford Falcon has just 13,000 original miles Lifestyle – Ever notice how some stories just seem to jump right off the page? Such is the story that arrived recently from John Ziler, who lives near Ailsa Craig, a small town within easy driving distance of Sarnia,. Ontario: “I bought my 1965 Falcon three years ago. I had tried one out in 1965 but just having my first job, I couldn’t afford the monthly payments so had to settle for a Volkswagen. And now, 44 years later, I purchased this one. It has no options except an automatic and came with a 170 cubic inch six cylinder motor. When I bought it, it had just over 10,000 miles. It now has 13,000 miles on it. “It was bought new in 1965 from Eastway Ford in Hamilton and still has the original dealer sticker, owner’s manual, and sales brochure. The man who bought it new in March 1965 worked for Ford in Oakville and helped build the car. He died in December of that year and his wife put it in the garage where it stayed for 40 years. The cats were getting into the car so she put a rug over the hood. Obviously surface rust developed under the rug but the rest of the car was quite rust free. “When his wife died, the daughter gave the car to her nephew, who was going to put a V8 in it and race it. Fortunately, someone told him this would be terrible to do to such an original car. He put a new tank in it, new lines, and new tires. I just replaced the original exhaust pipe and

it still has the original brake shoes. “When I purchased it, I just wanted to have the front painted and leave the remainder original but there was no guarantee that the paint would match so I had the whole car painted in the original colour. It is a great car to service and drive and a wonderful ‘barn find.’” It’s interesting to note that John John Ziler’s 1965 Falcon 4-door sedan, still just like new! Ziler purchased a Volkswagen when he discovered he could not afford a new Falcon when he wanted one prized possessions. in 1965. It was the popularity of “She toured the farm house (then the Volkswagen in the 1950s that From page 23 owned by Wilf and Sandra Cook) and the prompted the Big Three to bring out school house,” Henderson recalls.

For her efforts Henderson received a copy of the book which her oldest sister is currently reading. Both have read Munro’s books and chuckle when referring to “the sexy bits”. Henderson admits her cousin’s writing style didn’t appeal to some residents of her hometown (Wingham) when her books first hit the market. “But now that she’s famous I think the town is very proud to be able to call her one of their own,” she says with a smile.

Road crashes impact entire community theme of day of remembrance Lifestyle – The Ontario Ministry of Transportation is launching a public awareness campaign to coincide with the National Day of Remembrance for Road Crash Victims (NDRRCV) which is taking place Nov. 20. There will be an event held in Ottawa this year to mark this date. The theme for this year is “Road crashes impact an entire community”. The series of ads and public service announcements concentrate on the four highrisk behaviors that cause the most collisions; distracted, aggressive, impaired driving and seatbelts. The common title for each campaign segment should light up your vehicle’s instrument panel at every start up: “Drive with Caution – Future Ahead”. It’s a reminder that every vehicle collision has a consequence

and it almost always involves changing someone’s future for the worse. With winter tire season upon us, my email inbox is getting filled up with questions. Here’s a few of the more common ones. What about 12-month or all-season/winter tires? These were first brought out a few years back by Good Year under the ‘Triple-Tred’ moniker and Good Year remains the main player in this segment. They carry the mountainsnowflake symbol and are certified winter tires. But at best they are a compromise between the longevity of an all-season (read summer) tire and the grip of a true winter tire. They will last slightly longer on average than a traditional winter tire, but will not get the mileage that a comparable summer tire

does. For those snow-birds that drive south for the winter, they can be a convenient alternative to driving down on snows and then switching to summers for the duration of the southern hibernation. Heavier vehicles seem to have better traction on the roads; do they still need snow tires? This one came from a reader comparing his Mazda Protégé hatchback (which was equipped with snows) to a Ford Windstar van which wore summer boots all year long. While minivans can

have better traction due to their mass and front wheel drive set up, they can still ‘break loose’ on poor road conditions and I can testify from experience that when they start to lose control, it will take a good set of tires and a lot of driving skill (that I didn’t have) and luck (that I did, I’m still here) to avoid hitting the ditch or worse. This minivan owner stated he simply drove at lower speeds on the highway when conditions were poor. While driving the correct speed for

weather and road conditions is always a great idea, being extra cautious is an admission that summer tires don’t provide the same control as winters. Tires will wear out no matter which type you have on, so putting on proper snows won’t really cost any extra. Go with the right gear for the season and that means winter tires for Canadian winters. This same reader did send along a helpful tip for finding tire bargains by searching online want ads like kijiji, for example. He correctly pointed out that when many people trade up to a new or newer vehicle, they usually have a set of snow tires (with or without rims) in their garage that

Young actor offers up memorable performance in Ender’s Game MOVIE: Ender’s Game STARRING: Asa Butterfield, Harrison Ford, Hailee Steinfeld, Viola Davis, Abigail Breslin and Ben Kingsley DIRECTOR: Gavin Hood RATING: PG Arts – Ender Wiggin is one of my favourite fictional characters. He’s a uniquely interesting combination of strength, genius, empathy, ruthlessness, and sadness. When I saw the first trailer for Ender’s Game I was filled with both excitement and dread. Excitement at the prospect of seeing one of my favourite books on the big screen, and dread at the possibility they’d screw it up. Thankfully they didn’t. When the aliens attack Earth they are looking to colonize our planet. We only barely manage to fight them off, but the lesson of their attack is not lost. The International Military would spend the next 50 years preparing for the Formics return. Ever since it was discovered only young minds have the flexibility to process the amount of data required to orchestrate massive space battles, the International Military has been recruiting the brightest of Earth’s children. Ender Wiggin

(Asa Butterfield) is perhaps the brightest tactical mind Colonel Graff (Harrison Ford) has ever seen. Ender is brought to Battle School where his training begins. He is pushed harder and harder by Colonel Graff, and each time Ender finds a way to win. Soon Ender and his team, Bean (Aramis Knight), Petra (Hailee Steinfeld) and the rest, are promoted to Command School where they’re pushed even harder. Graff believes Ender is humanity’s only hope to end the Formic threat. Ender himself is caught in an internal struggle between wanting to save humanity, and not wanting to become a heartless killing machine. Ender wins because he knows his enemy. The trouble is when you know your enemy well enough to destroy them,

you know them well enough to love them. This is what tears at Ender’s soul. There were times during Ender’s Game when I felt they rushed things. I suppose that’s just the difference between books and movies. Books have all the time in the world for developing story, setting and characters. Movies don’t always have that luxury. Despite that however, Ender’s Game gets so much of this story right I was willing to overlook the few flaws. This is an incredible film with wonderful visuals, a remarkable cast, and a story that’s thrilling, inspiring and beautifully sad. From Aramis Knight as Bean, to Hailee Steinfeld as Petra, to Moises Arias as Bonzo to Abigail Breslin as Valentine Wiggin this cast is perfectly chosen. Viola Davis is brilliant

as Major Gwen Anderson, and I love Ben Kingsley as legendary hero Mazer Rackham. For his part Harrison Ford plays Colonel Graff with such conviction you could almost forgive him for what he does to Ender. Then there is Ender. Asa Butterfield is a better Ender than I could have hoped for. He portrays all of Ender’s depth right to the very soul of the character. Good science fiction isn’t about aliens or spaceships, it’s about holding a mirror up to ourselves. Ender’s Game is very good science fiction. Mark Haskins’ column is a regular feature of the EMC.

Lizanne Caron, left, and Judy Devlin, right, lined up early to make sure they got their hands on one.

November full of excitement Legion to bring focus on helping homeless veterans at Perth’s Full Circle Theatre series of storytelling for adults begins with A Dubious Blessing: Two Old Women Speak, featuring storyteller Marta Singh. The show is a personalized story built around two folk tales, one from Russia and one from Argentina. Curtain time is 7:30 p.m. Tickets for both of the above shows are available at Tickets Please, 39 Foster Street, www. or 613-4856434. Meanwhile, Film Night International concludes its fall series this month. Nov. 20 offers No, a Chilean film, with English subtitles, about the struggle for the return of democracy in Chile in 1988. It will be shown at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. And, BarnDoor Productions is auditioning on Nov. 18 for their February production, the racy and shocking comedy You’ve Got Hate Mail. This is a threewoman, two-man show for performers who are willing to be daring and an audience who are willing to be dared. If you think

that’s you, come out at 7 p.m. on Nov. 18. See the audition page at for more details and a link to an extract from the script. A warning: this is definitely an adults-only production. On a more family-oriented note, make plans to see BarnDoor’s Christmas play, Every Christmas Story Ever Told (And Then Some), running Dec. 6 to 15. When three actors just can’t face another performance of A Christmas Carol, they decide to tell every Christmas story ever told, instead. The result is holiday silliness, with everything from Charlie Brown to Gustav, The Green-Nosed Reingoat making appearances (because Rudolph is still in copyright). It will be great Christmas fun. A busy month at FCT with great entertainment of different kinds and a lot more to come at Perth’s only ground-level, barrier-free theatre. Full details are available at

towards the goal of ensuring that every Provincial Command establishes a homeless veterans program tailored to meet their unique community needs,” says Gordon Moore, Dominion president of the Royal Canadian Legion. The program’s mission is to reach out to homeless veterans, or near homeless veterans, by providing immediate financial assistance and support when and where needed. It also connects them with the appropriate social and community services to establish a long-term solution to meet their needs. While the Legion continues to build on programs in urban centres across the country as the framework for the

Legion’s National Homeless Veterans Program, the next step is bringing together select national service providers and organizations to identify priority areas and gaps in several key areas including causes of homelessness, outreach and communication, services and programs, accessibility and coordination of effort. Across Canada, Legion Provincial Commands are working closely with Veterans Affairs, shelters and community organizations to get veterans off the street and into transition programs. Details on the summit will be updated on the Royal Canadian Legion website: www.


Arts – After a great start to the season with BarnDoor Productions’ hilarious The 39 Steps, live theatre is back with the Perth Community Choir’s annual fall production. Director Kristy Angel brings a strong cast and a powerful orchestra together for the Tony Award-winning musical The Secret Garden. Running Nov. 7, 8, 9, 14, 15, 16 at 7:30 p.m. and Nov. 10 and 17 at 2:30 p.m., The Secret Garden is based on the novel by Frances Hodgson Burnett. It’s the story of an orphaned girl brought to a loveless house and how she changes everything around her. Filled with wonderful music and great characters, The Secret Garden musical was written by Marsha Norman and Lucy Siman, winning three Tonys in 1991, including a Best Actress Award for the girl playing the orphan, the youngest ever to win a Tony. Nov. 23 marks to opening of 2 women productions’ third season at Full Circle Theatre (FCT). The

News – Recognizing the need for a co-ordinated, national strategy to address the issues facing homeless veterans, the Royal Canadian Legion is proud to announce it will organize and host a Homeless Veterans Strategy Planning Summit. This meeting will bring together the national organizations working with homeless individuals, but with a key focus on addressing veterans. The summit will be held April 15, 2014 at Legion House in Ottawa. “In 2012 the Royal Canadian Legion launched the National Homeless Veterans Program, Leave the Streets Behind, and we are working

Gone from my sight, that is all. She is just as large now as when I last saw her. Her diminished size and total loss from my sight is in me, not in her. And just at the moment when someone at my side says she is gone there are others who are watching her coming over their horizon and other voices take up a glad shout “There she comes!” That is what dying is. A horizon and just the limit of our sight. Lift us up, Oh Lord, that we may see further. Always in our hearts Sheila, Alan and Meghan

GRACIE McADAM November 13, 2010 In loving memory of a dear wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. If we could have a lifetime wish, And one dream that could come true, We would pray to God with all our hearts, Just to see and speak to you. A thousand prayers won’t bring you back, We know because we’ve tried. And neither will a million tears, We know because we’ve cried. You’ve left behind our broken hearts, And precious memories too, But we’ve never wanted memories, We only wanted you. Loved and remembered forever, Buddy, Debbie and Bob, Randy, Austin, Laura, Greg and Kristen, Allan and Pam, Taylor, Joshua and Mathew

Love Always, Doug

Students at Almonte District High School learn from injured cyclist By KELLY KENT

Community – Robert Wein defines his life in befores and afters. Before, he worked his dream job with the government. Before, he loved to be active, completing triathlons and running distance for fun. Before, Wein was like everyone else. But then all of that was taken from him when he and a group of his friends who were cycling in Kanata were hit by a minivan. Now, after the accident, Wein lives a very different life. He now has what is called an acquired brain injury – a condition that left him unable to stand, walk or talk like he used to. Now, he lives his life in afters. After, he learned to stand and talk again. After, he refused to give up. After, he became an ambassador for safe driving and for people everywhere with disabilities. The students at Almonte District High School (ADHS) got a chance to hear Wein’s message at an assembly on Wednesday, Oct. 23, as part of their Celebrate My Drive campaign to raise awareness for safe driving during Mississippi Mills Drive Safe Week. “As long as you live, you will have challenges,” Wein told the students. “It’s not a question of whether they will come, but about how you will face them when they do.” Each of the school’s students, from Grade 7 to 12, sat quietly, attentively, as Wein told his story. He told the school of his life, before, and how he

had been living his dream – and then he told them, very matter-of-factly, how he came to be who he is today. “I don’t remember the day, or the month even, very well,” he said. “My memory has been seriously affected.” He was able to tell the school the facts he did remember, though: on June 19, 2009, Wein and four of his friends were cycling through Kanata, one of their favourite pastimes. Then, seemingly out of nowhere, the group was struck by a minivan, smashing the windshield and leaving all five people injured. Wein was the fourth member in the group to be hit, he said, and he sustained the worst injury. Two others were left with brain injuries slightly less severe than Wein’s, and the remaining two suffered physical injuries. The driver fled the scene, although he was later tried and found guilty during a six-day trial and was sentenced to two years less a day in prison. Wein spoke of his recovery afterwards, where he spent years attending physical therapy twice a week to learn how to stand and speak again, and although he still has some difficulty with each task, he is grateful to even have recovered at all. “Some people don’t even have a chance to recover,” Wein said. “I’m Photo by KELLY KENT lucky to still be here, to Robert Wein, a cyclist who in 2009 was permanently injured when he and a group of fellow cy- talk to you.” Even though Wein had clists were hit my a minivan in Kanata, gives a presentation about safe driving to the students at to “medically retire” from Almonte District High School on Wednesday, Oct. 23.


his job, he has still found a way to do what he loves. He has a modified bicycle now that he says goes just as fast as the regular one he used to ride. Also, he has found a new passion: spreading awareness of safe driving and brain injuries. “It would have been easy to just give up, to not do anything,” he said, “but that’s not right.” Wein travels from place to place, giving presentations at hospitals and conventions and talking to students at schools. He says he has given about 20 or 30 talks so far. In addition, Wein has started a campaign called Conquer Acquired Brain Injury, a walk/run that in 2009 raised just $936. It now raises over $10,000 each year. At ADHS, Wein spoke about the importance of wearing a helmet when cycling, about being a safe pedestrian and about being aware of what is around you when you are behind the wheel. He also invited all of the students to join him at the next Conquer Acquired Brain Injury event in June of 2014 at Andrew Hayden Park in Ottawa. Overall, he urged the students to be aware of what is around them, and it was clear from the cheers and applause that shook the gymnasium as Wein concluded his presentation that they understood. “I hope to keep talking to schools like yours,” he said, “so maybe we can prevent injuries like mine.”

Keeping local children warm and fed this winter By TARA GESNER

Community – To help keep kids warm this winter, Murphy Chiropractic Health Centre in Carleton Place kicked off its annual Hats, Mitts and Scarves Drive last Wednesday, Oct. 30, the day of the area’s first snowfall. “It’s all about the children,” said Dr. Sean Murphy. Drive partners Wayne Drummond and Ray MacLaren echoed the sentiment. “Making sure the kids are warm and fed,” said Drummond. Sean and his staff will collect hundreds of hats, mitts and scarves for the youngest members of the community during the month of November. The seasonal wear is circulated through the Carleton Place Christmas Basket/Angel Tree Program, and anything leftover is taken to the Lanark County Food Bank (LCFB) for distribution. “This is the tenth year of our drive,” said Christine Murphy, the health centre’s business manager, “and we love doing it.” Sean and Christine and their two children (Rachel and Callum) call Carleton Place home. “It is important for us to give back,” explained Sean. Murphy Chiropractic Health Centre regularly contributes to the LCFB, and each Thanksgiving holds its Give Thanks Bread Drive, delivering complimentary loaves of fresh, homemade bread to local residents. Approximately 125 loaves


Kicking off the 2013 Hats, Mitts and Scarves Drive are (back, from left) Dr. Sean Murphy; Wayne Drummond, organizer of the Carleton Place Christmas Basket/Angel Tree Program; Ray MacLaren, owner of the local Giant Tiger; (front, from left) chiropractic assistants Deanna Mains and Mackenzie Thurston; and Christine Murphy, business manager. were handed out last month. Along with his wife, Drummond has organized the Carleton Place Christmas Basket/Angel Tree Program for several years. Our goal is to make the holiday season a little better for people (couples, families and individuals) in need, he said. The Angel Tree Program provides gifts for residents up to 16 years of age.

MacLaren is the owner of the local Giant Tiger store. Just last month he accepted the Carleton Place and District Chamber of Commerce’s 2013 Community Involvement Award. Handmade or new store-bought hats, mitts and scarves can be dropped off at Murphy Chiropractic Health Centre, located at 3 Costello Dr., until Nov. 30. Business hours are as follows: Monday and Thursday, 7 to 9 a.m. and 3 to 6 p.m.; Tuesday, 3 to 8 p.m.; and Wednesday, 7 to 9 a.m. It’s not just the centre’s clients and members of the community lending support. Residents at Waterside Retirement Community contribute, including its popular Knits Wits group. “Some people prefer to donate money, which we collect in an envelope and present to Wayne,” said Sean. Drummond said the Carleton Place Christmas Basket/Angel Tree Program request line went live on Nov. 2 and remains open until Dec. 7. People can call 613-257-4277 between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. He added that all requests are kept strictly confidential.

Residents learn about workings of government

News – Carleton Place Municipal Academy (CPMA) certificates were handed out during the council meeting on Oct. 22. Mayor Wendy LeBlanc did the honours, congratulating this year’s 14 graduates: Kari Clarke, Michael Coffin, Jim Collins, Janet Ferguson, Lise Heroux, Maciej Kuzma, Chun Ling (Alice E.) Li, Claude Meunier, Helene Millard, Lorey Miller, Sylvia Pryde, David Robertson, Danielle Robinson and Marvin Whalen. Clerk Duncan Rogers noted 2013 saw the largest number of participants in the program’s history. The CPMA was held over two nights at the town hall, Oct. 16 and Oct. 21. It is free. Rogers and intern Catalina Blumenburg presented the curriculum.

“The program covers items such as the types of government, council procedures, committees of council and the municipal election and budget processes,” said Rogers. Participants come with a willingness to listen and share with fellow citizens as well as a desire to make a difference in the advancement of the town. The recent CPMA was the municipality’s third. “We originally got it (program) from the City of Franklin in Tennessee,” said Rogers. “Our sister city.” Carleton Place and Franklin were twinned in January 2005. The municipality is also linked with Comrie in Scotland, and the official ceremony took place August 1992. Last week, speaking about the civic course, LeBlanc said, “I think it was very successful.” While passing out certificates, she joked

with student Marvin Whalen. “Marv, after you took the course, did you change your mind about why you were here?” asked LeBlanc. “I’m still thinking about it,” he replied. “Marv announced that he was vying for my job in the next election,” noted LeBlanc. “Along with some others, I think.” The mayor thanked Catalina and Rogers for their hosting duties, and asked participants for some feedback. “I think it was very well presented for us newbies,” said Whalen. “It was very well organized, very well presented,” said Chun Ling (Alice E.) Li. “I learned a lot about the community. Carleton Place is such a beautiful place and the people are very nice.” “I understand a number of you are very much interested in the history of Carleton Place,” said LeBlanc. “You caught the bug.

Local Carleton Place business owner says he’s fed up with illegal dumping By TARA GESNER

News – Placing one’s unwanted furniture, appliances, mattresses, garbage and other debris on someone else’s curb is illegal dumping. Carleton Place resident and developer Volunder ‘Wally’ Thorbjornsson had piles of trash discarded in front of his properties in Industrial Park North (IPN) on Thanksgiving Monday. He said it wasn’t the first time. Frustrated by the situation, Thorbjornsson sent an email with pictures to local councillors on Oct. 14, copying the Canadian Gazette. “I have brought this up with (town) staff numerous times but have not seen any action or plans regarding this ongoing problem,” he said. Thorbjornsson also raised the issue with the municipality’s industrial initiatives committee, suggesting the installation of security cameras. Committee members suggested property owners install their own security cameras, he said,

and a recommendation by town staff was to keep “status quo.” Although dumped in front of Thorbjornsson IPN properties, items are resting on town land. He has even erected “No Dumping” signs, to no avail. “If the town is not prepared to come up with a solution and work with property owners in the industrial park, why should I come up with a solution for the town’s land and the removal of garbage on public property?” asked Thorbjornsson. Furthermore, he said that due to the Privacy Act, he couldn’t install security cameras to monitor town land. “… I hope to have my outstanding issues dealt with in the very near future,” said Thorbjornsson. He arrived in Canada from Iceland about 12 years ago, spending the first couple of years in Ottawa, before moving with his wife and four children up to Mississippi Lake in Carleton Place. Thorbjornsson purchased the land at 130 Industrial Ave. (now Scandia Business Park) in 2004. “I have invested nine years and millions of dollars in a decaying

industrial park, trying to beautify and redevelop it… ,” he said. “This is one of many (issues) that I have been trying to work with the town to resolve,” continued Thorbjornsson. During the Carleton Place planning and protection committee meeting last Tuesday, Oct. 15, council heard from the developer. “When this happens, it needs to be dealt with,” he said. “If the same garbage was dumped on the steps of town hall, I am pretty sure it would be dealt with a little bit quicker.” Thorbjornsson wondered why IPN is secondary to other parks in town, asking “when I point this (dumping) out, why isn’t it being dealt with?”

“I want to take measures to prevent this from happening again,” he said. “I’ve talked to other property owners in the park, I’ve talked to the OPP (Ontario Provincial Police). Again, he suggested a surveillance system in the park. Mayor Wendy LeBlanc understood Thorbjornsson’s problem; however, she said it was an issue that needed to be dealt with at another meeting. Although Thorbjornsson was permitted to speak, council was discussing another issue – a recommendation from the good neighbours/great neighbourhoods committee regarding the pickup and disposal of large, bulky or unusual waste on a periodic basis.

answered Thorbjornsson. Going forward, “to makes things easier,” the developer suggested the town provide him with a number of garbage stickers that can be affixed to discarded items. Thorbjornsson told the Canadian Gazette that the items in front of 130 Industrial Ave. were picked up on Friday, Oct. 18. “No garbage stickers have been offered to me,” he added.

“We need to get a staff recommendation on that and look at the implications to the town,” said LeBlanc. “This is a different issue.” “In the meantime, what happens to the bulk items in front of my property?” asked Thorbjornsson. “Are they still there?” questioned LeBlanc. “You haven’t picked them up,”

Upcoming forum to focus on community-based health solutions Community â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Health care planners and providers are invited to participate in a day-long rural forum in Mississippi Mills on Nov. 14 to explore integrated, community-based solutions to rural healthcare challenges. Participants will hear new ideas, share their knowledge and discuss priorities. The forum is presented by the Rural Ontario Institute (ROI) and Community Health Ontario (CHO). Participants will enjoy expert presentations highlighting current challenges and emerging initiatives in the area of coordinated community health services, and will then share perspectives in facilitated, small groups to discuss â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;what it takesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; to support healthy rural communities. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The physical and mental health of Canadians declines from the most urban regions to the most rural and remote regions. At the same time, services are more

time-consuming and expensive to deliver in rural areas,â&#x20AC;? said David Kelly, chief executive officer, Ontario Federation of Community Mental Health and Addictions Programs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Funding frameworks often fail to take these differences into account, so we need to discuss innovative roles that local organizations can play to support healthy rural communities.â&#x20AC;&#x153; The information gathered from this forum, and another two other forums organized by ROI in other locations around the province, will be compiled into a report to be shared with municipal, provincial and federal policy makers and all forum participants. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ontarioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rural population is already older than the provincial average and the number of rural seniors continues to rise at a faster pace than in urban areas,â&#x20AC;? said Norm Ragetlie, ROI Director of Policy and Stakeholder Engagement. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The purpose of these fo-

Fundraiser aims to help local victimâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s family with everyday needs By KELLY KENT

Community â&#x20AC;&#x201C; After Carleton Place man Paul Guy and his two children suffered a terrible tragedy recently â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the loss of wife and mother Shannon Guy â&#x20AC;&#x201C; communities all over Lanark County have been hosting fundraisers and rallying together to help lessen the financial blow. Now, one local Beckwith woman has set up a different type of fundraiser: a bank account to help the young family with their everyday needs.

Michelle Vinnins, a longtime friend of the Guy family, said she was heartbroken when she heard the news that Shannon had passed away, and wanted to do something, anything, to help. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I felt helpless, like I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do anything,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I can just remember what I was like when I was 25 with two kids and I just wanted to help Paul and his girls through this.â&#x20AC;? Vinnins has set up a bank account with the CIBC in Carleton Place, where people can place donations. The account is

now in Paulâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s name and he will have access to the funds whenever he needs them. Paul and Shannon Guy had been married only a few short months when an accident in Mexico left their two girls, aged four and one, without a mother. Paul is now left the sole supporter for the family, and Vinnins said she understands how much pressure that can put on a person. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The fundraisers raising money for the girlsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; education are great, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get me wrong,â&#x20AC;? Vinnins said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;but people can

forget about the immediate financial implications of losing a partner.â&#x20AC;? Vinnins said she wants to stress that the account is not about savings for the girlsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; educations or for trust funds; instead, it is an account to help Paul raise his young family during this difficult time. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is money to keep him going until he gets back on his feet,â&#x20AC;? Vinnins said. Aside from everyday purchases like groceries and school supplies for the girls, Paul will also need to help pay for his





Sa Evďż˝

late wifeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s funeral, among other things. He has also needed to take time off from his job at The Brick, further stressing the flow of money coming in to the household. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everybody needs a boost every now and then,â&#x20AC;? Vinnins said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Right now, Paul could probably use some help to take the pressure off the financial side of things.â&#x20AC;? The bank account has been set up for a little over two weeks and has, up to the time of print, raised more than $1,600 for Paul to use to sup-

port his family. Vinnins said the account will be left open indefinitely, until Paul feels he no longer needs it, but it will be open until the end of this year at the very least. Those who are interested in donating money to assist Paul and his family can go to any CIBC branch and deposit funds into the account, number 00886-80-60231. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Any little bit helps,â&#x20AC;? said Vinnins. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Paul is a great guy who has suffered a great deal. He deserves all the support we can give him.â&#x20AC;?

Scorn for dishonest politicians

ditorial – Get out your magnifying glasses folks, we’re about to whip out the world’s smallest violins. The first string solo will be for embattled Toronto Mayor Rob Ford who finally, on Tuesday, owned up to his wicked ways, admitting that, yes, he did spark up some crack after all, probably while really drunk. Ford lied to the people of Toronto, saying, one moment, that he could not comment on a video he hadn’t seen – fair enough – and which might not exist…only to promptly send out his Huey Long-like henchmen to find the same said video. And, like the high school football player he once was, believes he can simply bulldoze his way through his opposition. It’s almost pathetic and sad but he brought it upon himself. And yet, his support has gone up, 39 to 44 per cent, according to the Toronto Star. Yes, he has done a lot to stop the gravy train at city hall. He’s an everyman, as though Homer Simpson was elected to the city’s highest office. He may never be charged, though his brother’s bullying words

on Tuesday that the Toronto police chief, Bill Blair, should resign, for saying he was “disappointed,” in the mayor’s behaviour on the video, show the mean, ugly, bullying side of the Ford family. And yet, there is no mechanism for getting rid of the guy. So, it will have to be up to the voters in Toronto, this time next year, to send him packing – should the left get out of its sanctimonious way long enough, and not divide the vote by rallying behind a single, electable candidate, essentially, not screwing it up – or, dare we say it, getting re-elected. Maybe a municipal version of Lanark, Frontenac, Lennox and Addington MPP Randy Hillier’s recall legislation should be enacted, to do a short-run around these types of shenanigans. Now for violin solo number two for Senator Mike Duffy, sounding like one of those old K-Tel announcers – “But wait, there’s more!” – in his speech to the senate last month, who threw himself on the mercy of his fellow political bagmen, uh, we mean, honourable senators, saying that

he was there against doctors orders, that the ordeal, oh, the strain of it all, was taking its toll. And if he were shown the door, what of his health benefits? (He’s married to a former nurse, by the way, so, no, he won’t be without in-house medical care.) Senator Pamela Wallin also played the ‘I am a cancer survivor’ card. Stop it you two. Don’t drag heart disease and cancer survivors into this. You knew about your health problems when you decided to allegedly defraud us, by claiming to live somewhere you didn’t, and collecting money for “living” there, and then trying to

cover it up afterwards. There are Canadians who have to decide, every day, “Do I eat today, or do I get my heart medication?” Where’s their $90,000 from Nigel Wright? We can be thankful that we are seeing some good political news, in Carleton Place, where council voted 6 to 1 to allow draft budget documents to be made public, like other municipalities. As we saw when access to information laws finally allowed us to see Ford’s drunken St. Patrick’s Day hijinks, a vigilant free press is doing its part to keep them honest.


Don’t let alcohol ruin your holidays Opinion – With the holiday season fast approaching there will be an increase in people drinking alcoholic beverages. Just don’t let that holiday cocktail cost you your life. Whether you’re headed around town, out of town, or out to celebrate, remember to drink responsibly. Make a game plan and know your limits and how to detect and prevent dangerous situations, and above all, don’t drink and drive. Any amount of alcohol can weaken a person’s ability to drive, and the penalties for impaired driving are no joke – fine, loss of licence and possession of vehicle on the spot or jail. More importantly, you can kill yourself or someone else. Lanark County Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) Reduce Impaired Driving Everywhere (RIDE) stops will again be highly visible throughout the holiday season – anywhere and any time. Too, the Festive RIDE campaign will launch at the end of the month. The time of year was perfect for the Municipal Drug Strategy Network (MDSN) for Lanark County and the Town of Smiths Falls, which held its fifteenth education day on Oct. 25, discussing “Alcohol, What’s the Problem.” A number of people attended the half day session at the Beckwith Recreation Complex, which was facilitated by Bonnie Schnittker public health nurse with the Leeds, Grenville & Lanark District Health Unit. The vision of the MDSN: A healthy community free from alcohol and drug misuse/ abuse. The education day utilized a station format, with members rotating every 25 minutes through five posts: Choice Matters, Sgt. Paul Klassen of Smiths Falls Police Service and Const. Sean Trahan of Lanark County OPP; Time Matters, Sara Hammel of TriCounty Addiction Services; No Safe Type, No Safe Time, No Safe Amount, Kim Marshall and Danika

Wentzel of the Leeds Grenville & Lanark District Health Unit; Smart Serve OnTara Firma tario, Mary Parsons; and Canada’s Low-Risk Alcohol Drinking Guidelines, Schnittker. According to statistics presented, adult heavy drinking in Leeds, Grenville and Lanark is higher than the provincial average. Five drinks or more is the definition of heavy drinking or risky drinking. “The proportion of people 20 years and older who reported consuming five or more drinks on at least one occasion in the previous 12 months is about 40 per cent,” said Schnittker. “In Ontario it is 37 per cent.” For youth (12 to 19 years) it is 35 per cent in Leeds, Grenville and Lanark; 25 per cent for Ontario. I in no way condone underage drinking whatsoever, but in regards to adults, I believe you can still enjoy alcohol, just don’t let it take control of you. Visit the Canadian Centre on Substance Abuse website at to read about Canada’s Low-Risk Alcohol Drinking Guidelines. It’s important to note that zero’s the limit for people when they are: driving a vehicle or using machinery and tools; taking medicine or other drugs that interact with alcohol; doing any kind of dangerous physical activity; living with mental or physical health problems; living with alcohol dependence; pregnant or planning to be pregnant; responsible for the safety of others; or making important decisions. The MDSN holds three education days a year – in February, May and November. The next session is on Friday, Feb. 28. The topic will be “Marijuana.” The Drug and Alcohol Helpline (1-800-5658603), funded by the provincial government, provides information about drug and alcohol addiction services in Ontario.

Reader voices concerns about council’s lobbying efforts for new hospital DEAR EDITOR: I was at the Oct. 22 Carleton Place Town Council meeting when this issue of hospital redevelopment was discussed. (Carleton Place and District Memorial Hospital chief executive officer) Toni Surko did an excellent job providing information on the funding process and fielded a number of questions from councillors and members of the public in attendance at the meeting. I would hope that Toni offers this presentation at other venues in Carleton Place as it provided an excellent overview of the grant application and cur-

rent state of the hospital redevelopment process. However, I have concerns regarding some of the mayor’s (Wendy LeBlanc) comments. Wendy told the group that she has been able to obtain the support of a number of lobbyists in Toronto who are working on behalf of the hospital. She also emphasized that these lobbyists are not affiliated with the hospital and that this is a movement from council table. The mayor also told council and the public that she would not reveal the names of the three people who are working on behalf of the town.

In a follow up note requesting further information, the mayor again refused to provide any information on these individuals or their efforts and stated that they were volunteers, not lobbyists per se, working on behalf of our community at their own time and cost. I also asked if she had vetted this issue through the town’s integrity commissioner; she refused to answer this question as well. Toni Surko made it clear in her presentation that professional lobbyists were restricted by provincial legislation to petition for hospital funds from the

provincial government. As the mayor is a member of Health Hub (Hospital Redevelopment) Committee, is this in fact considered to be “lobbying”? Is the mayor and council entering a legal grey area by having volunteers “lobby” on behalf of the town for the hospital? What are these individuals’ qualifications? Could they be potentially doing

more harm than good in terms of the Carleton Place hospital getting future funding? I guess we may never know. The mayor claims “transparency and accountability” on her homepage, so why all the secrecy? Scott Dunlop Carleton Place

Council considers awarding contract to second lowest bidder DEAR EDITOR: For the third time this year, staff at Lanark Highlands have recommended awarding a tender not to the lowest bidder with questionable justification. In the latest case, on Oct. 22, council considered a motion to award the contract for engineering services for the French Line bridge project to the second lowest bidder GD Jewell Engineering. Jewell’s bid ($82,495) was 78 per cent higher than the lowest bid from HP Engineering for $46,330. The motion to award the contract was based on a staff recommendation approved at a committee-of-thewhole meeting on Oct. 1. The staff recommendation was based on the statement that HP lacked experience and their proposal was for rehabilitation of the bridge or to replace the bridge over the existing abutments. An evaluation scheme had

produced a total of 73 points (out of 100) for HP and 82 for Jewell. The problem is the staff report contained errors. HP responded to the COW decision in writing and made a presentation at the council meeting and clearly proved that their fees were for bridge replacement as required by the specification. The proposal did offer to look at other alternatives. As to experience, the three principals of the firm have a combined 65-plus years in bridge design. The evaluation scheme has some questionable numbers. For example, in the category “Understanding of the Assignment”, HP scored only eight out of 15, presumably based on the erroneous conclusion that HP was bidding on rehabilitation only. With this and numerous other questionable numbers it is hard to believe that the scoring was based on the facts.

When a tender is received from an unknown firm, the references are critical. The reference checks did not produce a single negative comment and no one indicated that a project had problems or additional costs were incurred. In one recent case (South Glengarry) council was faced with a similar situation where the bid from HP was much lower than the others. However, the contract was awarded to HP, was successful, and HP has been used on subsequent projects. The debate at council was lively. The end result was a motion to defer the issue to the next COW meeting with a request to administration to provide additional justification for their recommendation. The issue took a bizarre turn at the end of the meeting when members of the public had an opportunity to raise questions or make comments. The mayor shocked everyone, in-

Gender Illusions deserves praise for fundraising throughout community initiative to use their outstanding talents to raise funds for valley charities. As a first timer to their show I could see by the audience that they have a loyal following and are greatly respected and appreciated for their huge contribution to our communities. I would encourage anyone who hears of this group performing in their areas, to attend. I would like to applaud this group for being such a positive and valuable addition to our areas. They have donated countless hours and energy to raise badly needed funds for various charities throughout the val-

ley. From what I have been told the amount is quite substantial. I look forward to attending another performance in the future, to support their fund raising efforts. If we all could do something to make this world a little better wouldn’t this be a wonderful world. Gender Illusions you must be so proud for all you have done. You have set such a great example for others to follow. Be proud of all you have accomplished because I sure am proud of you and thankful you are part of our community. Frances Bryerton Almonte

again be discussed at the COW meeting on Nov. 12. The most likely outcome is that council will go into closed session (whether the information qualifies or not) and will emerge to announce that the contract cannot be awarded to HP because of the confidential information.

DEAR EDITOR: I recently attended a fund raising event held at the Almonte Legion. The group performing was called Gender Illusions, which are female impersonators who have been appearing through Ottawa and the Valley and have many guest entertainers depending on the show and venue or city/town. The group this evening consisted of four men, one from Almonte, one from Carleton Place and two special guests from Toronto. This was a totally enjoyable evening and I would like to send out my sincere and most heartfelt thanks to this group for taking the

cluding council members, by stating that confidential information pertaining to the issue had been received late that afternoon. It is baffling why the mayor and administration chose to conceal this information from council members and allowed them to debate the issue and possibly award the contract not knowing about it.

Lanark Highlands council defers decision awarding bridge tender to higher bidder By AMY HOGUE

News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Following a lengthy debate at Lanark Highlands council on Oct. 22, council voted to defer the award of the French Line Bridge replacement engineering design to a higher bidder and to bring the issue back to committee-of-thewhole (COW) for further discussion on Nov. 12. At a COW meeting on Oct. 1, the committee voted to award the design tender to engineering firm, GD Jewell, despite their having a tender bid that was nearly double the lowest bidder, HP Engineering. Following the COW decision, HP Engineering representatives wrote a letter to council and appeared as a delegation at the Oct. 22 council meeting to clarify the details of their tender prior to council ratifying the COW decision. At the Oct. 1 COW meeting, township staff submitted a report recommending the engineering firm, GD Jewell, be awarded the tender in the amount of $82,495. The report stated GD Jewell was instrumental in Lanark Highlands receiving funding to complete the French Line Bridge replacement. Further, staff indicated that GD Jewell provided engineering services to the township for the last three bridge construction projects. The report states that while HP Engineering had the lowest tendered amount of $46,330 there were a number of factors which led staff to score them lower than GD Jewell in the selection process. Staff named the lack of experience of HP Engineering as a company and that the main focus of their work has been bridge rehabilitations. The report stated â&#x20AC;&#x153;the main proposal from HP was to attempt to rehabilitate the bridge to extend its life for a further 20 years. The secondary proposal from HP was to rebuild the bridge over the existing abutments.â&#x20AC;?

HP Engineering Principal Engineer representatives, Luc Monette and Jan Podolak, made a presentation to council objecting to the information contained in the report to committee, namely the lack of experience for their company and the scope of work submitted. Monette clarified that despite being a new company, HPâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s key staff have over 65 years of combined experience, and have designed hundreds of new bridges â&#x20AC;&#x201C; references to which were contained in their resume attached to their proposal. In an Oct. 18 letter sent to council and public works superintendent, Dave Ennis, HP Engineering informed council several â&#x20AC;&#x153;concerned citizensâ&#x20AC;? of the Township of Lanark Highlands informed them of the award recommendation to GD Jewell for â&#x20AC;&#x153;nearly 80 per cent more than our fees of $46,000 for this assignment.â&#x20AC;? In the letter, Monette clarified the fees they provided are for the scope of work requested in the RFP for the French Line Bridge replacement. The letter stated that â&#x20AC;&#x153;the staff report erroneously states that our main proposal was for the rehabilitation of the bridge only and that our secondary proposal for the superstructure replacement.â&#x20AC;? The letter added that it would â&#x20AC;&#x153;extremely unfortunate to unnecessarily expend nearly double the design fees for this assignment because of a simple misunderstandingâ&#x20AC;Ś surely the taxpayers of Township of Lanark Highlands do not deserve such a penalty.â&#x20AC;? Although HP Engineering acknowledged to council their proposal did contain a design fee reduction in the event the township wished to entertain cost savings measures, but that page 10 of their proposal clearly outlined that the fees were based on â&#x20AC;&#x153;full bridge replacement.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our fees are for the scope of work

requested in the RFP,â&#x20AC;? Monette stressed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There seems to be some misunderstanding in the recommendations made at committee-of-the-whole; we are not bidding the job as a superstructure, only replacement.â&#x20AC;? Monette encouraged staff to consult the references provided within their proposal, who would attest to the reliability, knowledgeability and dedication of HP Engineering. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We request staffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s recommendation to award this assignment to GD Jewell, and our proposal, be further considered,â&#x20AC;? Monette told council. Deputy Mayor Brian Stewart said he contacted the Township of South Glengarry, an HP Engineering reference, who provided a â&#x20AC;&#x153;very positive reference.â&#x20AC;? Stewart explained that South Glengarry had similar concerns with accepting a tender so much lower than its competitors, but that HP Engineering successfully completed the tender requirements and has since been awarded future contracts. When questions about the proposal were directed to staff, Thomas McCarthy, public works technologist, noted that the RFP was for the replacement of the substructure and superstructure and that â&#x20AC;&#x153;as we looked over the proposal we felt that the proposal was for the superstructure replacement.â&#x20AC;? Monette countered by reiterating that their â&#x20AC;&#x153;intent was always to do a full replacement and as I said our fee structure clearly states that on page 10 of our proposal.â&#x20AC;? Stewart was of the opinion that HP Engineering had demonstrated the experience and expertise and didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t feel the company should be penalized because they hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t previously done work for the municipality. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m obviously against awarding this to GD Jewell,â&#x20AC;? Stewart stressed, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think

in good conscience we canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go ahead and pay $40,000 more for the same product.â&#x20AC;? Coun. Ken Sinclair was in agreement with Stewart. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve (HP Engineering) confirmed to me tonight that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not that they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have the engineering experience theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re an unknown company but I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think we can penalize them just for this. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m convinced that the lowest bid does qualify in my mind to go forward.â&#x20AC;? McCarthy told council that despite the recent information provided by HP Engineering, his decision would not change before the next committee meeting. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We looked over it for a week. I talked to HP

Engineering before I put forward my recommendation. I heard nothing today that would change my recommendation so you would get the same response at the next committee-of-the-whole.â&#x20AC;? Coun. Bob Mingieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s opinion was that public works staffed needed to be convinced of the merits of HP Engineeringâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s proposal. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think we can make a recommendation they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t support.â&#x20AC;? Coun. Tom Lalonde echoed this statement. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I agree with Bob (Mingie) that we need to satisfy the public works staff, we need to send this back to them and see if theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re satisfied.â&#x20AC;? In the end, council voted to defer.
















Patient/Resident Safety Week celebrated care providersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; role Last week was Patient Safety Week in Canada. The Canadian Patient Safety Institute established Patient Safety Week in 2005 to â&#x20AC;&#x153;inspire extraordinary improvement in patient safety and qualityâ&#x20AC;? through communication within Mary Wilson Trider organizations and with their communities. At Almonte General Hospital (AGH), we celebrated Patient/Resident Safety Week to recognize our role as care providers through the ambulance service, hospital and long-term care settingsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; and it truly was a collaborative effort. The week began with CPR recertification training/testing and flu shots for AGH and Fairview Manor staff, physicians and volunteers, given by paramedics from our Lanark County

Ambulance Service. The Maintenance, Day Hospital, Pharmacy and Physiotherapy departments also created information displays that described how they keep patients and residents safe. They also suggested ways that staff, physicians and volunteers can stay safe at work, through such practices as proper lifting techniques. Over the course of the week, more information was added on fall prevention, the MOREOb program, hand hygiene, best practice guidelines for community rehabilitation and reintegration, Day Hospital, hazard awareness, safe lifting and carrying, proper patient identification and medication reconciliation on discharge. For each of these topics, a subject matter expert was available for a half day to answer questions. The information poster boards stayed up all week. The displays included a number of testimonials from patient and residents who have

received care across the organization. Patient/ Resident Safety Week also featured daily quizzes to reinforce the principles of safe care, and each dayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s winner received a gift certificate for a local business. Across the three divisions of the organization, many people worked together to give us an interesting, informative and fun Patient/Resident Safety Week. I would like to thank everyone who participated in creating the displays, reading and learning about safety, the CPR recertification/ flu shot day and the quizzes. Special thanks to Heather Graham, Director of Health Records and Chief Privacy Officer, for her leadership of the Patient/Resident Safety Week activities.

Tips to prevent window strikes by birds Lifestyle – Before the cooler weather expected of November, near the end of October Ray Sample of Corkery area, had American Robins in his yard. At the Almonte waste sanitation ponds on Oct. 24, Ray Holland observed two flocks of Pectoral Sandpipers, three Greater Yellowlegs, three Bufflehead, and one Snow Goose. In Beckwith Township, Randy Marinelli called to tell of spotting an American Woodcock on his property on Oct. 20. The day before, the Whitethroated Sparrow that had been at his place for some time was gone. Still present though, was a Barred Owl.

SAFETY TIPS Smoke Alarms: Test your smoke alarms. If a fire starts in your home while you are asleep, you want to know about it immediately. Some homes are equipped with electrically connected smoke alarms that may not work when the power is out. Make sure your home has a batteryoperated smoke alarm on every level.

other Golden Eagle feeding on a deer carcass. Mentioning bird feeders last week Bruce DiLabio, in his Ottawa Citizen bird column, gives good suggestions to help prevent window strikes by birds. He states that to reduce these strikes, ensure that your feeder(s) are not too close to a picture window, or keep the curtains closed during the day. The birds see the reflection of trees and other vegetation and think it’s safe to fly on. Other eco-friendly ideas include hanging old compact discs, tinfoil or aluminum pie plates in front of your window. This will prevent strikes, even though it doesn’t look great. Window decals can be obtained online. A thin blanket of white covers the ground as I write. Please call Lynda at 613-2565013 or email with bird reports.

Mississippi Mills Recreation Master Plan in final stages after public meeting

Community â&#x20AC;&#x201C; On Monday, Oct. 28, a small group of local residents attended a public meeting at Almonte Old Town Hall to hear about the latest draft of the Mississippi Mills Recreation Master Plan, which is nearing its final stages. Less than 20 people were present to take in the presentation by David Krajaefski, a consultant with the firm, Stantec, which has been in charge of compiling the plan. The town started the recreation master plan more than a year ago, when council hired Krajaefski and his team to begin research on recreation in Mississippi Mills. Over the course of several months, information was gathered through research and public consultation. Next, Kra-

jaefski began compiling recommendations that would form the 10-year master plan. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The plan is meant to be a sort of roadmap for council to follow in their decision making as far a recreation is concerned for the next 10 years,â&#x20AC;? Krajaefski said. The finished plan will be a baseline measure to guide the town in creating and maintaining recreation programs and facilities in the near future and will therefore have a major impact on the community and its members. At this point, the recreation master plan is in its final stages. The draft will be brought forward at the next council meeting on Nov. 5 to make final changes, but ultimately the meeting held Oct. 28 was the publicâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s last chance to give their input, after several opportunities over

More information specific to MisOther trends affecting recreation sissippi Mills was compiled from a

public survey issued earlier in 2013. Out of more than 12,000 residents in Mississippi Mills, 220 people responded to the survey, as well as 26 local organizations. The median age of survey respondents was 40, lower than the median age of Mississippi Mills. They identified a want for more recreation programs for people aged six to 20, as well as a desire for more trails, waterfront space and open outdoor facilities. Additionally, the respondents said they had an acceptable level of satisfaction with existing facilities with a score of three out of five. In addition to seeking information on potential new facilities in Mississippi Mills, Krajaefski also compiled a list of the assets already See PLAN page A/CP13

PLAN sissippi Mills. The plan covers a wide area of recommendations, which can be seen in the draft plan on the Mississippi Mills website at Discussion After Krajaefski had wrapped up his presentation of the recreation master plan draft, he opened up the floor to questions and comments from the public. Despite the small size of the group, there was much discussion. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I feel like this plan is not so much strategic as visionary,â&#x20AC;? one local man said, adding that while there were a lot of ideas in the plan, he felt there was no plan of action. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I want to know when, how, and by who these things will get done.â&#x20AC;? As an answer to that, Krajaefski said that is something for the town council to decide: it is up to them to bring forward motions and take action on each recommendation when funds are available. Next, a local woman asked if the plan would prioritize timelines, explaining that she would like to see projects broken down in phases.


â&#x20AC;&#x153;The short answer is yes,â&#x20AC;? Krajaefski said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What we did was break it down into high, mid and low priority projects which are further broken down in ways like years one to four, then five to ten and so on.â&#x20AC;? Many people brought up activities that did not appear in the plan, like cross-country skiing, which Krajaefski made a note of for the upcoming council meeting. Coun. Denzil Fegurson, who acted as a chair for the plan meeting, added that the 2014 budget will â&#x20AC;&#x153;possiblyâ&#x20AC;? include funds to begin the recreation master plan. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Often we create these plans and then they sit on a shelf and gather dust,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Not this time. This time we want to take action as soon as possible.â&#x20AC;? The meeting lasted just over an hour that night, and ended with Krajaefski saying he promised to raise all of the publicâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s input with council at their next meeting. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The whole point of the recreation master plan is to create better facilities for the public,â&#x20AC;? he said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;so weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re doing our best to listen to what you want.â&#x20AC;?

Recommendations Krajaefski and his team have compiled a draft of the recreation master plan, making several recommendations to the town. First of all, he recommended that the town conduct building condition surveys on all of the recreation facilities in the town to determine their conditions. He then suggested making any repairs or updates needed. He also suggested that the Cedar Hill School, which is a community building, be upgraded so that it can be used year round, thus expanding its usefulness. Focusing on active transportation and trials is also some-

thing that Krajaefski said he recommended. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We support the acquisition of the railway line,â&#x20AC;? he said, referring to the recently demolished train tracks that run through the heart of Mississippi Mills. He suggested using the line to create a system of hiking, biking and cycling trails. He also recommended that the town ask Lanark County to pave the shoulders of countyowned roads to create safe cycling lanes. Krajaefski spoke about Gemmill Park, saying that it was an invaluable town asset, but that he would recommend that the town review the parkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s master plan from 2000 to determine the future projects that may take place there. He also mentioned that the park would be a good candidate for a splash pad. Other recommendations he made included continuing to support Taking Young People Seriously (TYPS), partnering with Mills Community Support, implementing a dog park in an existing park space, expanding programming for people aged six to 20, considering naturalization of some parks and continuing the vast array of special events already in Mis-

The average amount of park space per capita that is considered standard is four hectares (ha) per 1,000 people, while Mississippi Mills has 6.7 ha of additional land. All of this information helped Krajaefski and his team create their recommendations for the town.

Special event in advance of International Pakenham Horticultural Society Day of Persons with Disabilities Nov. 29 blooms thanks to RBC donation By TARA GESNER

Community – Fifteen per cent of the world’s population live with some kind of disability, facing physical, social, economic, and attitudinal obstacles. “These barriers prohibit them from participating fully and effectively as members of society,” said Kory Earle, president of People First of Ontario (PFO). This Dec. 3, the commemoration of International Day of Persons with Disabilities offers an opportunity to address this exclusion. PFO, People First of Lanark County (PFoLC) and the Mills Community Support Corporation (MCSC) are co-hosting a special event on Friday, Nov. 29, “to look at how far we’ve come,” said Earle. The event runs from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Carleton Place Army Navy & Air Force Club, located at 315 Townline Rd. E. Everyone is welcome. Guest speakers include Carleton Place Mayor Wendy Leblanc, a MCSC representative, Earle and PFoLC president Manon Lépine. “Participants will hear how far we’ve come, they will hear about our accomplishments, and they will hear how proud we are as

Canadians to celebrate International Day of Persons with Disabilities,” said Earle. Light refreshments will be served. The theme of 2013’s International Day of Persons with Disabilities is Break barriers, open doors: for an inclusive society for all. Employers in Canada hire only 26 per cent of people with disabilities? “In my view, this is shameful,” said Earle, “and this needs to change.” The PFO president would also like to see more community services and supports available for individuals with developmental disabilities, helping them in their everyday lives. He noted the waitlist for the current services and supports is “totally unacceptable.” In regards to accomplishments, the PFO leader noted the historic class action lawsuit between Ontario’s government and former residents of Orillia’s Huronia Regional Centre, The province from 1876 to March 31, 2009 operated Huronia Regional Centre. Residents committed to the institution sued the government for alleged physical and sexual abuse, humiliation and neglect. A resolution was reached out

of court this year on Sept. 17. Earle said the terms of the settlement include $35 million, a formal apology, and a promise to maintain Huronia Regional Centre’s cemetery and create a registry of all those buried there. According to the Ministry of Community and Social Services website, there are 571 marked graves an estimated 1,440 unmarked graves at Huronia’s cemetery. The last institutional burial was in 1971. The settlement approval hearing takes place in Toronto on International Day of Persons with Disabilities (Dec. 3). “It was never about the money,” said Earle, “and no amount of money would ever erase the horror, abuse that these people suffered at Huronia for many years.” “This is about getting justice for the survivors and those who have passed on,” he continued. An advocacy group, People First works exceedingly hard on behalf of all people with disabilities. The organization strives to promote dignity, respect, community inclusion and self-determination. The Town of Carleton Place will officially declare Dec. 3 International Day of Persons with Disabilities at its council meeting on Nov. 26.


Community – The Pakenham Horticultural Society will be able to beautify the area a little more thanks to a recent donation from the local RBC branch. Back in September, the Pakenham RBC branch presented a $1,000 donation to the horticultural society, which came from the bank’s donation department. Bank staff also joined forces to help beautify the area near the Five Span Bridge in May as part of its Spirit of Giving Day. “We took grass away from the bottom of trees where the lawnmowers couldn’t go and cleaned out the scrub on the side of the bridge,” explained branch manager Faye Potter, adding that employee Colleen Russell spearheaded the initiative to aid the horticultural society. “There was some weeding of flowers done as well.” “It was a super fun day and it’s nice to be able to support the community. Giving them (horticultural society) $1,000 to go along with it is never a bad thing,” Russell noted. Pakenham Horticultural Society co-chair Sheryl Smith said the funds were a “total surprise” and would be put to good use. “It’s like Christmas came early!” she remarked. “The horticultural society will probably do something related to the water (with the funds), either cleaning the river or to ensure there’s a viewpoint for the river. Maybe we will provide a bench at the river for the community to enjoy.” She indicated that the river plays a big role in Pakenham’s history and its present. “One of the things identified as an issue is the change house at the beach. It’s desperately in need of fixing up and

When my pain goes away, is my problem fixed, Dr Murphy? We often see a person experiencing serious pain in a leg or shoulder, but the cause of the pain is somewhere deep within their spine. More often than not, your pain is being caused by an issue far away from where you ‘feel’ your pain. Pain is a blessing because it makes you get up and start pursuing answers, relief, and better health. If you have never experienced a thorough chiropractic, neurological and orthopedic exam at a chiropractor to assess your spine, we would recommend this step to anyone who is experiencing PAIN. Chiropractors are amazing at finding and correcting the CAUSE of your PAIN. Call a chiropractor. Blessings, Dr Murphy

refurbishing,” Smith commented. With approximately 51 members, the horticultural society maintains barrels of flowers at all the public parks in Pakenham and also sponsors a junior horticultural program each year. For more information on the Pakenham Horticultural Society, visit


Open Files Anyone who’s ever renovated a kitchen or bathroom knows that doubling the estimated time for the project to be completed is not an exaggeration. We visualize what the end product will be like and imagine it being done in an often unrealistic amount of time. Human nature, I guess, combined with a good dose of wishful thinking! Here at the Town Hall there are projects that we’d love to close the file on and that citizens of our Town often ask me about. Realistically, though, some of these are long term projects that could stretch into decades before the file is finally closed and archived. Here are a few that have OPEN stamped across them: Redevelopment of our hospital has been in the works and on our minds for over five years now, and the team making the bid to the Ministry of Health and Long Term Care, continues to work resolutely through the process. As a Council, we are committed to continuing our full support of the redevelopment team and know that our community does as well. To put things into perspective, the redevelopment of our neighbouring Perth and Smiths Falls Hospitals took 17 years from vision to reality. R0012397390_1107

This was a great question I received this week. Pain is a complex symptom that we only partially understand. Pain can run your life or ruin your life, but it is ONLY a symptom. Pain is not a diagnosis. So when the pain goes away, we have NOT solved a problem. As a chiropractor, I want to know about your pain, but more importantly, I want to know WHY your pain is present. Pain is a symptom of something going wrong deep within your body. When pain is linked to spinal misalignment, we need to correct the misalignment in the spine. Classically, when someone begins their chiropractic care, pain subsides in 2 to 4 weeks, but the spinal misalignment is still present and still causing hidden issues under the surface.


The Pakenham Horticultural Society recently received a $1,000 donation from the local Pakenham RBC branch.

The extension of McNeely Avenue from Highway 7 to Highway 15 has passed through many stages from a very early idea to the point where we now have a concept plan of how housing, parks, industrial and commercial areas, roads, and so on will fit on the several hundred acres. Agreements have been reached with Lanark County and the Ministry of Transport, and each dotted i and crossed t gets us one step closer to the finished product. How much closer? We’ve a fair few years ahead of us – not unlike the initial McNeely Avenue road and bridge construction between Townline Road and Highway 7 which was proposed in the 1971 Urban Transportation Study and completed in 1994. New housing projects are in various stages of development with some builders finishing up the last few homes, others with the shovel just going in the ground for foundations, some at the Lanark County approval level, others with initial plans in at our planning department, and others still in the talking stages. When these all come to completion, there will be several thousand new housing units in our Town, and, no doubt, there will be several other developments coming along, too. 3 Costello Drive, Carleton Place, Ontario | 613-253-8813

Budgetary issues including Day Care funding and policing costs, much-needed Seniors’ housing, maintaining and expanding our sewer and water treatment plants, and many more issues and projects are also in the pile of files marked OPEN. Just what you’d expect in a growing community like Carleton Place!

With the game tied 1-1, Sturtz, Devin Campbell, Landon Gareau, Jim Roll and Evan Peterson all scored in a nine-minute span to blow things open. With the Canadians up 7-3 late in the third period, frustrations boiled over with a number of fighting and inciting opponent misconducts handed out. All 10 skaters wound up in the box at the 14:50 mark with Parker Krol of the Colts and Larry Smith of the Canadians thrown out for fighting in the last 10 minutes of the game. In all, referees Andy O’Keeffe and Brandon Yuck had their hands full on this night thumbing the rivals for 32 infractions and a total of 158 penalty minutes. Sturtz and Peterson led the way on the scoresheet with a goal and three assists each. Roll also scored once and added two assists. Other Canadians goal scorers were Stephen Baylis and Brett Everson. Canadians were full value for the win in this one, outshooting the Colts 50-21. After such an emotional game, the team could be excused for a bit of a letdown the following night in Hawkesbury. The improving Hawks took advantage of a tired Canadians squad to steal a 3-2 win. Playing in front of

1,000 hometown fans at the Robert Hartley Sports Complex, the home team built a 3-1 lead early in the third, then hung on for the regulation win. Evan Peterson and Brett D’Andrea had the goals for the Canadians who closed the gap to 3-2 midway through the third, but couldn’t beat Hawks goalie Cory Simic for the equalizer. Simic was named the game’s first star for his 27-save performance. Canadians netminder Guillaume Therien took the loss despite stopping 25 of 28 shots. Canadians bounced back from their sub-par performance Friday with another dominant win Sunday, 7-3 at home over the Gloucester Rangers. Playing in front of just over 300 fans at the Neelin Street Community Centre, Andy Sturtz scored twice in the first period, completed his hat trick with one more in the second, then added two more goals for good measure in the third to lead the Canadians attack. Defenceman Jim Roll also enjoyed a big game with a goal and three assists while Brett D’Andrea scored once and added an assist. Goalie Justin Laforest picked up the win, making 19 saves off 22 Rangers shots. Gloucester’s starter

Doug Johnston was pulled 6:41 into the second period after giving up four goals on 24 shots. Danick Boisvert didn’t fare any better, allowing three goals on 13 shots the rest of the way. Not surprisingly, Sturtz was named the CCHL Corporate Hype Player of the Week with 10 points (six goals and four assists) in three games.

The Buffalo, N.Y., native now leads the scoring race with 46 points (23 goals, 23 assists) in just 25 games. Coming up Coming up this weekend, the Canadians have a pair of home games. They host the Nepean Raiders on Friday (7:45 p.m. start) and Ottawa Jr. Senators on Sunday afternoon. Puck drop is 3 p.m.

Sports – It’s onward and upward for the Carleton Place Canadians. After another two wins this past week, the club continues to widen the gap with the other teams in the Central Canada Hockey League (CCHL) and has moved into the national top 10 in the most recent Canadian Junior Hockey League poll. The team opened with an important showdown last Thursday in Cornwall with the Colts, easily dispatching their closest division rival 7-4 in a fight-filled affair. The next night in Hawkesbury, it was a showdown of recently-traded goalies with former Canadian Cory Simic getting the better of his former teammates, backing the Hawks to a 3-2 win. Back home on Sunday, it was the Andy Sturtz show. The talented forward scored five times to pace the Canadians to a 7-3 win over Gloucester. With a 20-5-0-1 record for 41 points, Carleton Place now has a 10-point bulge over a trio of teams – Ottawa Jr. Senators, Pembroke Lumber Kings and Nepean Raiders. All three are tied atop the Yzerman Division standings with 31 points each. Last Thursday in Cornwall, the Canadians exploded for five second period goals en route to their win.

Dandelion Foods coming to Almonte

Business – With the current shift in thinking towards healthier living, Mississippi Mills already has a wide range of resources for those looking for gluten-free products, hormone-free produce or organic foods – and now, with the upcoming opening of Dandelion Foods, residents will have another solid shopping option. Dandelion Foods, which is currently being built at 451 Ottawa St. in Almonte, will be a completely organic, full-service grocer providing shoppers with fresh local produce, supplements and products. “We’ll be a great resource for anyone looking to live a healthier lifestyle,” said Meghan Pettipas, one of the store’s owners and workers. The 3,000 square foot store, which is tentatively scheduled for an early-December opening, broke ground in September. Pettipas said it would be different from nearby organic grocers for one simple reason: it will be full service. This means that shoppers will have access to fresh, organic produce as well as supplements, dairy, health and beauty products and a vast frozen section. Ultimately, it will function the

same way a large chain grocer does. “A driving factor behind the idea is to showcase local farmers,” said Pettipas, explaining that the store will source produce locally whenever possible. “Of course some produce will not be available year round.” In the absence of local organic products, such as those long winter months, Pettipas said Dandelion Foods would source organic products from trusted sources farther away from home. Pettipas is not alone in bringing this resource to Almonte. She is working within a team with three other business partners, all of whom have a passion for food. Sharon Lazette, Mike McGarry, Farhat Sultana and Pettipas all work for and co-own the store in what is known as a workers’ co-operative. The group of four is working together to bring Dandelion Foods to their hometown. The idea came to the group two years ago, when they got fed up with having to travel to the city or farther to find the organic products they were looking for. “We’re all really passionate about food,” said Pettipas, “and we also wanted to help support our local community

and keep the local food dollars where they belong, in the community.” The group has had to undertake several fundraising initiatives to help make their dream come true, and ahead of the store’s opening in a couple of months, they have almost completed the task. Their last piece of fundraising, said Pettipas, is to raise $15,000 through crowd funding. To do this, Dandelion Foods is collecting funds from locals. They can donate as much or as little as they would like towards the final goal. Interested donors can visit Facebook (www.facebook. com/DandelionFoods) for a link to the fundraising page and to make a contribution. While they’re still working out a date for the grand opening, Pettipas said the group is just happy to be working towards their goal of owning a store. “We’re so excited,” she said. “We almost have to pinch ourselves to make sure we’re not dreaming.”

Our soups are made from scratch, using the best quality, fresh produce from our stores – even the chicken stock is made from scratch using our fresh Canadian chicken slowly simmered with farm fresh vegetables. Enjoy the delicious homemade flavour of our tasty Leek & Potato Soup made in small batches with fresh leeks, Yukon Gold potatoes, minced garlic and real cream. It's naturally delicious.

Thank you Carleton Place, Lanark County and Ottawa! November N b marks k my one-year anniversary i living li i in i Carleton C l t Pl Place and d serving my clients with their mortgage needs.

Christmas Food Baskets: adults and families (distributed through Almonte Lion’s Club)

Jeannie simplified a complicated situation and the more we understood the process, the less stressful it became. She also found us the best rate and terms and there are no second doubts when you get the best rate possible. We recommend her to anyone considering a mortgage or renewal. Jason and Kim L., Black Lake

If you are in need or know someone who is this Christmas, please call (613) 256-1031, ext. 62 and leave a confidential detailed message for “Food Basket” including your name, address and telephone number. Please ensure that the adults in the families are aware that the names have been referred.

In-Patient Laboratory Services Receive Exceptional Accreditation Results! The Carleton Place & District Memorial Hospital (CPDMH) is pleased and very proud to announce that its laboratory recently received outstanding results in its peer accreditation process. From September 9 – 13, 2013, the Ontario Laboratory Accreditation (OLA) conducted an assessment of the hospital’s on-site laboratory which services patients who visit inpatient, emergency and ambulatory care clinics. Upon conclusion of the review, the CPDMH laboratory was found to have met 412 standards and achieved an exceptional compliance standing of 97.86%! “This is an excellent effort from a great team of professionals!” stated Christine Price, Quality Manager of the Central Region of the Eastern Regional Ontario Laboratory Association. “We are very proud of our team of laboratory professionals,” added Esther Houle, Chief Nursing Officer for CPDMH. “They are a critical part of our team and should be recognized for their great efforts!” To achieve accreditation, a laboratory undergoes an assessment visit conducted by a team of peers comprised of both quality system and technical experts carefully tailored to the scope of testing laboratories. An effective quality system reduces risks

and improves patient safety through the implementation of tools that eliminate variability in processes. If areas of non-conformance are cited, the laboratory is expected to take corrective action within 90 days of the visit.

The OLA program is part of the Quality Management Program–Laboratory Services (QMP–LS) and is operated by the Ontario Medical Association. The OLA assesses the ability of a lab to perform the scope of tests for which it is licensed and provides them with formal recognition of this competence. It also provides medical labs with the tools they need to standardize their processes, address diminishing resources and set quality benchmarks. The OLA promotes quality improvement of laboratories and other related services for the public good and the benefit of health professionals.

OLA is mandated by three provinces in Canada (Ontario, New Brunswick and Newfoundland & Labrador), and is subscribed to voluntarily by other laboratories. OLA has been in operation since September 15, 2000. QMP–LS identifies, designs and delivers external quality assessment, accreditation (OLA), educational services and related products that meet international standards, client and stakeholder requirements. QMP–LS has issued accreditation Medical Laboratory Technologists, Janice Nephin and Phil certificates since 2003.

Hillier introduces petition calling for Carleton Place hospital redevelopment pital administrators and the residents of the area, the Ministry has been unwilling to make sure Carleton Place area residents get the care they deserve,” said Hillier. “Redeveloping the Carleton Place Memorial and District Hospital is a good project that’s needed and what the area’s residents want.” Carleton Place is one of the fastest growing communities in the area. That growth is putting a strain on the hospital, causing concern for local residents and for health administrators as far away as Kanata and Stittsville. Redevelopment funding is needed to ensure quality health care in the area. Both the Carleton Place community and neighbouring municipalities have demonstrated their support for this redevelopment through the donation of land

and other financial contributions. The project also has the support of the Champlain Local Health Integration Network (LHIN). Providing quality health care to the residents of Carleton Place and the surrounding area has support from hospital administrators, the local LHIN, from the municipalities and, most importantly, from the citizens themselves,” said Hillier. “It’s time for the Ministry to get down to business and approve funding to redevelop the Carleton Place Memorial and District Hospital.” Hillier encourages people who support the redevelopment of the Carleton Place Memorial and District Hospital to add their names to the petition at his Perth or Carleton Place constituency offices, at the CPDMH, or online (


News – Randy Hillier, Member of Parliament (MPP) for Lanark-Frontenac-Lennox and Addington, has introduced a petition in the Legislative Assembly of Ontario calling for redevelopment funding for the Carleton Place and District Memorial Hospital (CPDMH). A lack of funding has hindered the hospital’s ability to provide health services in the fast growing municipality. The petition has over a thousand signatures, and they keep coming in. “Even before I got into politics, the Carleton Place and District Memorial Hospital has been petitioning Ontario’s Ministry of Health and LongTerm Care for redevelopment funding,” said Hillier. CPDMH has been submitting annual appeals for funding since 2003. “Despite the efforts of hos-

Local churches welcome new minister By KELLY KENT

Community – Just in time for its 180th anniversary, Almonte Presbyterian Church has found itself with a new minister after years of being without. Rev. Barry Carr is new to a lot of things right now: he’s new to Almonte Presbyterian, he’s new to St. Andrew’s Church in Carleton Place, he’s new to Mississippi Mills – and he’s new to being a minister. “These are my first positions as a minister,” Carr said. “I came to the profession very late in life.” Carr started his position as minister for both the Almonte and Carleton Place churches in September, on Labour Day weekend. He only moved to Mississippi Mills from Ajax, Ont., where he was born and raised, a short time prior to that. “The community has been very welcoming,” Carr said, smiling. “They really have greeted me with open arms.” In May of this year, he graduated from Knox College in Toronto, where he spent fourand-a-half years completing the Master’s degree program that would enable him to fulfil his calling. Before he realized he wanted to become a minster, Carr worked as a general automotive

mechanic, making a living in his hometown. “I spent a lot of time with the church in my community, though,” Carr said, adding that he built up various responsibilities within the organization over the years, like volunteer gigs and duties, and he soon realized that being a minister is what he was meant to do with his life. “I seemed to be making people happy and comfortable,” he said, “and what does a minster do if he doesn’t make people happy and comfortable?” After finishing school and becoming a full-fledged minister, Carr kept his ear out for positions in the area. When he heard about the opening at Almonte Presbyterian, he applied. “Ultimately, they chose me,” he said of how he got the position. “I guess they thought I would be a good fit.” The congregation, he said, must think so, because even though he’s a Toronto Maple Leafs fan at heart, the people of Mississippi Mills and Carleton Place have been nothing but good to him. “I’m a huge sports fan,” Carr said. “It doesn’t really matter what sport: hockey, baseball, football – there isn’t one I don’t enjoy.” Carr runs the service at St. Andrew’s Presbyterian at 9:30 a.m. and then at Almonte Pres-

byterian at 11 a.m. When he’s not doing that, however, he will visit people in hospital or at home. He will spend the rest of his time out in the community, meeting people and getting a feel for the two towns. He is adjusting to Almonte, where he is currently renting a house, quite well. He plans to purchase a home in either Almonte or Carleton Place in the near future. So far, his favourite part about being a minister in the area is the people. “It should always be about the people,” he said. Almonte Presbyterian Church has been without a minster for several years, after their last permanent minister moved on to another church. In the meantime, they’ve made do with temporary replacements. “I’m here for the long haul,” Carr said. “I think the church needs some stability.” Soon, the church will be celebrating its 180th anniversary, and Carr will lead the service, which will take place Sunday, Nov. 3, at 11 a.m. Both the Almonte and Carleton Place congregations will gather together that day for a special service and then a lunch afterwards at the church, but Carr said everyone is welcome. “Everyone is always welcome at my church,” he said. “That’s what it’s all about.”

In Flanders Fields

by John McCrae, May 1915

In Flanders fields the poppies blow Between the crosses, row on row, That mark our place; and in the sky The larks still bravely singing, fly Scarce heard amid the guns below. We are the Dead. Short days ago We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow, Loved and were loved, and now we lie In Flanders fields.

$1 from every customer in the Levi Home Hardware Building Centre on November 11th will be donated to the Royal Canadian Legion, Branch 240, Almonte THE EMC - A/CP28 - Thursday, November 7, 2013


Take up our quarrel with the foe: To you from failing hands we throw The torch; be yours to hold it high. If ye break faith with us who die We shall not sleep, though poppies grow In Flanders fields.
