Hospital pay, perks unveiled DEREK DUNN derek.dunn@metroland.com

Ontario hospitals made public the contracts of their top managers on Jan. 3, with Arnprior District Memorial Hospital’s CEO Eric Hanna coming in at $192,406. Many hospitals disclosed the information three days after they became subject to the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act. Ontario Hospital Association president and CEO Tom Closson said he released the information to build trust with taxpayers. “Hospitals’ decision to proactively disclose their key material signals a strong commitment to transparency, accountability, and the importance of building the trust and confidence among the people they serve,” Closson said in a press release. ADMH’s four highest managers, according to last year’s “sunshine list,” came in at a combined $522,116. Hanna doesn’t find the announcement of salaries new or unsettling, saying market conditions dictate appropriate pay. Were he to do comparable work as a small hospital CEO in the private sector, he said – citing the Manley Report - he would be paid more. While private sector wages can be pegged to profitability, Hanna’s is tied to performance. The ADMH board of directors has eight goals laid out for him related to quality of care.

Town loses former reeve, ‘gentleman’ DEREK DUNN derek.dunn@metroland.com

The Arnprior Lions Club recognized several of its members and contributors at a special event in the month of December. – Page 19

Arnprior lost a long-time community builder and gentleman on Dec. 30, say to friends and colleagues of Henry Murdoch. Murdoch, a long-time reeve of the town, died in Arnprior District Memorial Hospital at the age of 91. Born in 1919, Murdoch worked at Kenwood Mills and Huyck, but is best known for his many years on town council, contributing so much that town hall itself is known at the Henry A. Murdoch Building. “We lost an individual that dedicated most of his life to municipal government,” said Coun. Ted Strike, who worked with Murdoch on council and

HENRY MURDOCH for him as a town employee. Strike recalls the former

reeve and one-time county warden as taking the lead in the planning and building of the new Bonnechere Manor. The Renfrew nursing home named two floors after Murdoch. Murdoch held many titles on town council. He was councillor back when elections were annual – 1965 to 1966, 1968 to 1972, 1979 to 1980, 1982, and 1983 to 1985; he was deputy reeve from 1968 to 1972; he was reeve from 1972 to 1974, and again from 1986 to 1997. “Henry always had the town of Arnprior at heart, front and centre,” Strike said. “Honest, dedicated, a man of integrity; he was quite a gentleman.” See ‘GENTLEMAN’ Page 2

‘Gentleman’ reeve mourned by town Continued from front That same word, gentleman, was used by Coun. Mark Willmer, who considered Murdoch a mentor in many ways. “It’s a great loss to Arnprior,” Willmer said. “Henry was very reasonable and well thought out on all issues. He respected all opinions; it was nothing personal.” His final official contribution to the town was a member of the police committee prior to the last election. He was also a long-time active member of the Arnprior-Braeside-McNab

Seniors at Home board, most recently serving in the important transportation chair role. He stepped down from that board position only recently. Murdoch is survived by his wife of 71 years, Isabell, daughter Margaret and son Bruce, along with grandchildren an great grandchildren. A celebration of his life was held Tuesday at Glad Tidings Pentecostal Church in Arnprior. For Murdoch’s complete obituary, see the classified section of this issue of the Chronicle-Guide.

Continued from front However, he agreed hospital employees derive moral satisfaction in their work on top of monetary compensation. Hanna, with 24 years working in hospitals, left for a stint as a consultant. “I get more satisfaction by bringing more benefits to the community,” he said. CEOs often note they are merely paid what others in similar positions receive; but when critics say all are overpaid, there is rarely a counter argument. There is also the question of whether high wages in areas such as hospitals result in marked improvements since many problems – such as aging demographics – are out of the CEOs’ control. Asked if the administrators best qualified for such a position are the ones who would rather cut their own salaries than, say, raise parking lot fees, Hanna said the best qualified person would take a look at the overall financial situation. “Those are the two extremes,” he said, adding a freeze on managers’ salaries hasn’t been matched by unionized workers. Still, Hanna understands the scrutiny. “I do realize it is public expenditures,” he said. “But I need to be competitive (when hiring), as well. You gotta pay what the market is.”

ERIC HANNA • Manager of communications and fund development Wendy Knechtel $928.65; • Chief of staff Dr. Christine Schriver $2,257.73; • Board member Gina Pilon $553.70. The chair of the board of directors, Steve Hudson, is free to ask for details on expenses to en-

sure they are tied to the corporation’s priorities. Hanna said it may have been true more than a decade ago that some abuse of the system occurred. For instance, tax dollars were used to pay for some hospital CEOs attending political fundraisers. That hasn’t been allowed for many years. On the other hand, it is unclear if spouses are allowed to attend out-oftown events. “But the regulations have been very, very clear what perks are out and which are in,” Hanna said. The media attention over the past few days has a way of universalizing what amounts to isolated examples, he indicated. “Everybody else gets tainted with the same brush,” he said. MORE ACCOUNTABILITY Hospitals are showing more accountability through the website myhospitalcare.ca. It details

the infect rate and wait times. ADMH was not rated. When it comes to acute care and emergency care between April 1, 2009 and March 31, 2010, ADMH rated above the provincial average.

Rising number of impaired drivers on road over Christmas worries OPP The number of impaired drivers nabbed in this year’s OPP campaign in Eastern Ontario doubled over the year before. The statistics are in line with trends in the rest of the province, worrying OPP. And Arnprior’s numbers are also disturbing. There were 79 Reduce Impaired Driving Everywhere (RIDE) checks during the Festive RIDE campaign in Arnprior. Three impaired driving or exceeded the legal limit of .08 milligrams cases were documented. Five licence suspensions occurred. “It’s a message people in a lot of places still do not get,” said Sgt. Gary Dougherty of the Arnprior OPP. “The only successful ride program is one that you don’t make any arrests.” In the RIDE program, which ran from Nov. 25 to Jan. 1, 103 drivers in Eastern Ontario were charged with impaired driving, up from 51 in 2010. Temporary driver’s licence suspensions were up slightly, from 77 to 83. This year, the OPP did not track the number of vehicles or drivers checked, but “are concerned” about the number impaired drivers apprehended. “It is very disturbing that so many people decided to risk not only their life, but also their family, friends and others sharing the road this holiday season,” said Inspector Dave Springer, the OPP’s East Region manager of traffic and marine. “Our officers removed 103 impaired drivers from the roads during the OPP’s Festive RIDE. Another 83 had their license suspended for registering in the ‘warn’ range on a road side device. This is unacceptable.” He pledged that OPP officers across the region “will continue to focus on those who have decided to endanger others on our highways.” Province-wide, police removed 1,203 impaired drivers

off roads and highways throughout the six Ontario regions that are policed by the OPP. Of the total, 652 were charged with impaired driving and the other 551 were issued immediate suspensions for having a blood alcohol concentration between .05 and .08. In comparison, during the 2010-2011 Festive R.I.D.E. campaign, 308 drivers were charged with impaired driving and 613 were issued suspensions. “On one hand, I am extremely proud of the hard work on the part of our officers who made this campaign highly-effective in removing these dangerous drivers from our roads over the holidays. On the other hand, I am disappointed that these drivers would risk their lives and the lives of others,” said OPP Commissioner Chris Lewis. In 2011, 47 people died in alcohol-related crashes on OPP-patrolled roads. Chief Superintendent Don Bell, Commander of the OPP Highway Safety Division, drivers shouldn’t let their guard down just because the holiday season is over. “The results of our Festive RIDE. campaign and the dangers associated with driving impaired have been widely-publicized in the news, yet more than 1,200 drivers still chose to ignore our strong messaging and warnings about impaired driving,” said Bell. “For those who feel relieved that our campaign is over, be warned that our regular RIDE initiatives will continue to be conducted throughout the province year-round, so there is no safe haven for impaired drivers anywhere or anytime on Ontario roads.” The OPP thank all those “who acted responsibly over the holidays by driving sober and helping to make Ontario roads safe for everyone.” With files from Derek Dunn

RIDE check in Burnstown results in drug charge Renfrew OPP report that officers seized a quantity of marijuana while conducting a RIDE spot check in McNab-Braeside on Dec. 30. At about 10 p.m.,, officers were at the intersection of Burnstown and Calabogie roads when they stopped a vehicle. The driver was arrested after some pot was found in the vehicle. Following an investigation, a 25year-old Pembroke man was charged with possession of marijuana. He was released on a promise to appear in court in Renfrew on Feb. 29. OPP Constable Hayley Chaplin investigated.

Renfrew OPP responded to 137 calls for service during last week. Among them were seven domestic disputes investigations. However, no criminal charges were laid. BE ALERT TO CONDITIONS Renfrew OPP issued a safety alert this week regarding winter driving. With winter now firmly here, drivers must devote their full attention to the task of driving, as the hazards of driving in the winter are numerous, warn police. Hazardous winter driving condi-

tions can include reduced visibility due to blowing snow, slippery road condition due to ice and freezing conditions, snow and slush spray coming off other vehicles, and the need for increased spacing between vehicles to account for slippery roads and reduced braking time. Unexpected road closures due to weather conditions or collisions can also result in delays while travelling, add police. “Be prepared for winter driving and arrive safely to your destination.” For more information on winter driving, go to www.mto.gov.on.ca.

Valley families hit hard by five highway deaths STEVE NEWMAN Steve.newman@metroland.com

Five residents of the upper Ottawa Valley were killed in two different crashes in the first three days of 2012. Three Renfrew-area teenagers, all students at Laurentian University in Sudbury, died as a result of a two-car collision near Hagar Tuesday night. Two of the students were declared dead at the scene of the crash that happened about 6 p.m. on Highway 17, about

55 kilometres east of Sudbury. Former Renfrew Collegiate Institute students Zabrina Rekowski, 19, of Renfrew and Keegan Melville, 18, of Horton, were passengers in a westbound Ford mini-van being driven by Hillary Afelskie, 19, of Admaston-Bromley. Afelskie remained in critical condition at the Sudbury hospital for several hours, but died about 1 p.m. Wednesday. Emily Olmstead, 19, of Whitewater Region remains in hospital. Afelskie was active with RCI’s Re-

lay for Life and Rekowski was active in such activities as wrestling and track and field. Melville was an excellent musician, whose principal, Alanna Emon, says could play practically anything with strings. “I know the whole school community will be devastated,” said Emon. “They were some of our most outstanding kids. It just breaks my heart. I just want the families to know we’re praying for them.” Two people from Sturgeon Falls in the

second vehicle, who were eastbound in a Jeep Cherokee, were transported to hospital with serious injuries. Investigation indicates the westbound Ford van crossed the centre line, striking the eastbound Jeep. Meanwhile, a two-car collision New Year’s Day on Highway 301 near Chenaux resulted in the death of Renfrew Subway employee Michelle Berndt, 19, and her mother, Guylaine Lepage, 48.

In wake of deaths, OPP urges parents to talk to young drivers Stunned by the deaths on Tuesday of seven young people in traffic collisions, the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) has issued an appeal for people to recognize better the dangers of winter driving. The seven dead youth, three of whom were from the Upper Ottawa Valley, range in age between 17 and 19 years of age. Three of the victims were from the Renfrew area and were returning to Sudbury where they attend Laurentian University. In a news release Wednesday, the OPP reports the seven “tragically lost their

lives” in two separate multi-vehicle collisions that occurred within four hours of each other. The fatal collisions were both related to winter driving conditions, police note. As a result of the circumstances surrounding these “avoidable tragedies,” the OPP is reminding motorists of how important it is to constantly adjust driving behaviour to the road conditions. “Weather changes, particularly during the winter, can occur suddenly and dramatically in Ontario,” says the OPP release. “Without warning, sudden storms and

plunging temperatures can drastically change road conditions and reduce visibility. “It is critical that motorists adjust their driving behaviour to the weather conditions, which can change rapidly and without warning,” said OPP Deputy Commissioner Larry Beechey, Provincial Commander of Traffic Safety. “Driving too fast for the road conditions is the number one cause of winter collisions,” he added. “Even on a sunny day, black ice is a constant danger and drivers should al-

ways assume its presence.” The OPP is asking for the assistance of the public and parents in particular to speak to their young drivers about the inherent dangers of winter driving and to lead by example. “Far too many people are continuing to take risks and are paying the ultimate sacrifice,” said Chief Superintendent Don Bell, Commander of the OPP Highway Safety Division. “Together we can teach drivers of all ages to become not just good drivers, but good road users.”

Continued from Page 5 The crash happened at 4:30 p.m. on the Quebec side of the Chenaux Bridge, near Portage-du-Fort, resulting in the closure of that stretch of highways 653 and 301 for about four hours. Three people, who were travelling in the other vehicle, sustained minor injuries. Conditions were above freezing, with wet snow on the roads. Berndt, who started working at the Renfrew Subway last spring, was a cheerful, helpful soul, says fellow Subway staff member Sue Fleming of Renfrew. “She got on with everybody. She was bubbly,” said Fleming. “She always had something to talk about. And if customers had problems, or spoke French, she’d jump in and help.” Berndt’s mother, father (Robert Berndt) or brother (Jesse) often picked her up for the ride home to Litchfield, Que. At the time of the crash, she was returning from her shift at Subway with her mother, who was driving.

EDITORIAL

Stocking up on extra riches not fair to the majority The average Canadian’s annual income equals just 2.5 days of a top corporate boss’s salary. Or, looked at another way, Canada’s 100 highest paid CEOs got a 27 per cent pay raise in 2010, while ordinary workers earned just 1.1 per cent more, according to a report by the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives. Is it simply a reflection of market forces at work; a willingness to pay top dollar for the best talent? The report seems to indicate otherwise. Company X has a board of di-

rectors. The board helps decide the CEO’s pay. But the board often includes members recommended by the CEO. It would be disadvantageous to put the interests of the company and workers ahead of the person who recommended them. Incredibly wealthy executives deciding each other’s salary: Business acumen can’t trump personal gain in a situation like that. Some would say the public realm is no place to pass judgment on the private sector. But the effects on the public have

grown too stark. Executive pay usually contains stock options. Stock options are taxed more favourably than other forms of earned income. Last year the value of such options reached $2 billion, or $26 million per CEO, according to the report. The tax break could amount to $475 million. That would have been a decent tax cut for workers, who in turn would likely have kept the money in Canada and stimulated the economy. We agree with those who ad-

Fireworks great

vocate doing away with the tax break for stock options. However, the elimination of stock options as part of executives’ compensation - to be replaced with pay based on profits and sales - should also be considered. It might be the only way to save corporations from themselves. Focusing on executives and their massive pay hikes in recent years is not meant to deflect attention from other areas. Upper management in many public sectors, including health care and education, are paid

more than taxpayers are able to give. It is not self-evident that the best person is hired simply because the compensation package is high. In many cases, the best person would look at the situation objectively and dispassionately and cut their wage substantially. But too often when talk turns to effective use of taxpayers’ dollars, the poor are blamed for abusing the welfare system. Corporate welfare, along with overpaid bureaucratic managers, should also be examined.

Help Humane Society deal with pet overpopulation

To the Editor: Kudos to the organizers of New Year’s Eve at the Nick Smith Centre. Their firework display was fantastic and I enjoyed it immensely from the balcony of my Robert Street apartment.

To the Editor: As we celebrate the holiday season at the Arnprior and District Humane Society, it is natural to pause and reflect on the events of the past year. Looking back, 2011 was a year of many accomplishments. It was a busy and challenging year. We survived a lot of overcrowding (150 cats in space meant for 75 maximum and 18 dogs in space for four) and even sickness on our cat population. It is with great pride that we at the Arnprior and District Humane Society thank our supportive community and loyal members for the compassion shown for the homeless pets. It is always grateful. We are proud of the fact that we have made progress in improving the care we provide to our injured and ill orphaned pets. What we regret is that we can’t always take them all in. Our shelter exceeded its maximum capacity many times over the year. Taking in more effects the quality of life of those we look after. We look forward to working with the community in making a change for the better by focusing on the over population issue in 2012. If we could have only one wish granted for next year, it would be for pet owners to please spay or neuter their four-legged dependents. Our sincere thanks to you and your loved ones, and we wish you all good health and happiness during the holiday season, and for all of 2012 and well beyond.

Gary will be missed, but the Scheel legacy lives on To the Editor: On Dec. 10, Arnprior, Pakenham and the surrounding communities lost a businessman, friend and relative, in one Gary Milton Scheel. His absence will be felt for a very long time. When Gary was 15, he quit school and went to work in the Arnprior butcher shop on Mary Street with his grandfather, Leslie Scheel. Early on he also sold fridges and freezers, and beyond the meat counter, he extended his salesmanship from a briefcase by selling televisions. The television business expanded so quickly Gary opened a store at 81 John St., Arnprior. During that time, stereos in cabinets were all the rage, and as stereo components took over,

space became a problem. He bought a building on Old Highway 17 on the outskirts of town and against the skeptics who thought people wouldn’t travel to buy his products, with his good business sense and his love for people and a fair deal, he proved them wrong, and was very successful. His furniture store consisted of a sound room to test stereo products, a complete line of white goods, televisions and top of the line home furnishings. As his business grew, Gary engaged his friend Dennis White, as an electrician, and Dennis capably managed the store in Gary’s absence. On the busiest of days, family was ready to help with sales and many remember Gary’s aunt Dorion Fairfield and cousin

Established in 1879

Murray Langford who were familiar faces on the store floor. Gary had the first store in Arnprior that rented movies. In 1981 a fire destroyed the entire building and Gary worked for a short period from his home in Braeside. He never re-built on the premises but moved to Pakenham in his father’s store. Gary’s character of generosity, friendliness and honest dealings saw his faithful customers follow him there. When entering his store, you were always greeted with a big smile and a cup of coffee. What was unique about entering the Pakenham store was that a meat counter was immediately at the front, so he once again went back to his roots of

being a butcher. Whether buying appliances or furniture, one thing was certain, when you left the store, you also carried out two free large T-Bone steaks. Every Thursday it was slaughter day at M. Scheel Packers and Gary worked tirelessly on that day also. Gary will be sadly missed by his customers, family and friends. His business will be carried on by his son Marc Scheel, together with his sister Lori Burgess. What else can be said about a man with such integrity and character – “it was just so good to have known him.”

Nature

Counting birds in Algonquin Park I enjoy all aspects of Nature. Through the 20-plus years of its existence, this column has dealt with subjects varying from flower deceit to ant mafia protection. For the past few weeks, however, birds have dominated its topic for good reason: it was the time of the Christmas Bird Counts (CBCs). I finished off the year as usual with a CBC in Algonquin Park, one of my favourite places in the world. The Algonquin count is held between Boxing Day and year’s end; this year it was held Dec. 30. As for all CBCs, the count is defined by a circle with a 7.5-mile radius. That area is broken down into sub-sections, each with a leader. Participants cover an assigned part of a subsection, and at day’s end, everyone converges at the Visitor Centre for a hearty meal followed by a compilation. Despite its distance from most cities, the Algonquin CBC attracted 85 people. Many, like me, are former seasonal naturalists. Others are birders who love the wild

Michael Runtz Nature’s Way nature of the count. Where else in Ontario can one walk all day and not see another person? What other count offers the possibility of encountering Marten, Moose or Eastern Wolves?

This was the Park’s 38th count, and only two participants – Ron Tozer, retired park naturalist and count originator, and Bill Crins, former seasonal naturalist and current top ecologist for OMNR – have been on all of them. I missed a few, taking part in about 25. For the past decade, I have covered an 11-km route that includes part of the Track and Tower Trail. We (usually Ann is with me) are dropped off prior to dawn and walk (usually snowshoe) along an unploughed access road from Highway 60 to that trail. On the trail, we walk east to Mew Lake, where our car awaits. The route along the old OAPS rail bed is beautiful. It follows the Madawaska River, which is open in small sections where annually I anticipate a duck that never shows up. The river is fringed with spruce and fir, and these harbour northern finches, Boreal Chickadees, and Gray Jays. That is, on most counts. The past two have been nearly birdless, with many observers encountering

only two or three birds per hour. This year was different. We heard birds – Common Redpolls almost as soon as we began, and at dawn found a Black-backed Woodpecker chipping off spruce bark. Almost every time we stopped and called for birds (pished and squeaked), Black-capped Chickadees, Red-breasted Nuthatches, Pine Siskins, or Whitewinged Crossbills appeared. By day’s end, we tallied 18 species, more than half the total tally of 32 species for the count. We found nothing unexpected, but others did. A Winter Wren and a Northern Sawwhet Owl (photographed with a cell phone) were rarities recorded that day. The CBCs for this winter are over, but birds and other animals will continue to provide inspiration for future columns. In fact, the other day a Long-tailed Weasel was seen chasing a Flying Squirrel.

Ice hut registration required on area lakes To protect the environment and ensure safety, anglers must register new or previously unregistered ice fishing huts on area lakes, emphasizes the Ministry of Natural Resources. Registration is free and helps prevent anglers from abandoning their huts, which can end up in waterways when the ice thaws. Huts must be registered in Fisheries Management Zones 12 and 15 in Renfrew County. To register your ice hut, call the Pembroke District MNR office at 613-7325502. Generally, registration may be done over the telephone. Once registered, an ice fishing hut can be used anywhere in Ontario. Registration numbers on ice huts must be at least 6.3 centimetres (2.5 inches) in height and clearly displayed on the outside of the hut. Tent-style ice huts made of cloth or synthetic fabric that have a base area of seven square metres (75.4 square feet) or less when erected do not need to be registered. The MNR suggests it’s a good idea to place huts on 15-cm (six-inch) high wooden blocks to make it easier to remove them at the end of the season. Ice hut owners must keep the area around their huts

NOW OPEN Now Accepting Appointments

clear of garbage. Anglers must remove ice huts from the waters of FMZ 12 below the Lake Temiskaming Dam by March 15. Huts in FMZ 15 must be gone by March 31. It is an offence under the Public Lands Act to leave an ice hut out after ice break, even if it is before the specified removal date.

No referral necessary • Chiropractic • Custom Orthotics • Laser Therapy

BE SAFE ON ICE The Ministry of Natural Resources is reminding anglers to check the ice before heading out to fish, as conditions can be deceptive and variable. Ice does not freeze at a uniform thickness across most lakes and rivers. Check thickness regularly with a spud bar or auger as you move further out on the ice. Not all ice is created equal. Ice that has formed over flowing water, springs, pressure cracks, old ice holes or around the mouths of rivers and streams can be weaker. Clear blue ice is the strongest. White or opaque ice is much weaker. At least 20 centimetres (eight inches) of clear blue ice is required for snowmobiles and 30 centimetres (12 inches) or more is needed for most light vehicles. Double it if the ice is white or opaque.

SEPTEMBER: An OPP officer is stationed outside 44 Edward St. on Sept. 11. During the early hours of Sunday, Sept. 11, Corey Blaskie, 41, broke into Nathan Woods’ home, tripping an alarm. According to a statement released by Woods’ lawyers, while 911 was being called, Blaskie confronted the homeowners and a fight broke out. “Fearing for their safety, the residents of the home defended themselves against a violent and unprovoked attack,� lawyers Michael Edelson and Solomon Friedman said. No charges were laid against the Woods family. The story garnered national attention.

JUNE: Robert Carr plants his torch after calling the McDonald clan at the Calling of the Clans/Ceilidh held at Waba Cottage Museum and Gardens to kick off the McNab Days festival. McNab Days attracted hundreds of people to four major events.

JULY: Many of Sandvik’s 150 employees gather behind the Arnprior plant on July 13 during the first morning of their strike. They were looking for pension and bereavement plan protection, along with a small wage increase. The company said international economic uncertainty and provincial demands have stretched its bottom line. The strike ended Aug. 8 with the ratification of a collective agreement.

MAY: Arnprior’s historic Catholic church, built around 1871, likely hasn’t borne witness to a scene this family came across after an early May windstorm. A massive evergreen at the corner of John and Church streets hangs over telephone wires and threatens to snap the pole. Cleanup crews got to the scene before any accidents occurred. Similar scenes appeared across the Valley.

OCTOBER: The Arnprior and District Breast Cancer Support Group hosted its 14th annual fundraising dinner without one of its biggest supporters - Norm Watt, husband of the group’s co-founder Elta Watt. Norm passed away in April of 2011. Breast cancer dinner volunteers Julia Watt, left, and Karen Smith, have the enviable task of doling out the pie and whip cream.

JUNE: Renfrew County Expo 150, a celebration of the county’s 150th anniversary, was by all accounts, a huge success, with attendance at the anniversary event at the Pembroke airport even better than organizers had hoped. People were delighted with the event, which included entertainment on three stages, displays, vendors and more. Arnprior characters Doug Scheels and Gordon Bethune were among the storytellers on hand to regale visitors.

OCTOBER: Located along the Madawaska River, the Water Pollution Control Centre’s almost $17.4-million renovation – split evenly among three levels of government – means occurrences such as the 2005 fine for dumping raw sewage in the Ottawa River should stay in the past.

Food bank sees rise in donations thanks to community’s generosity DEREK DUNN

money comes in handy for gasoline and utility costs associated with running the non-profit organization, located in the basement of St. John Chrysostom Church. The uptick in donations could be a result of a downturn in the city, according to food bank volunteer Allan Smith. He said when a homeless shelter and other service organizations in Ottawa put the call out for more donations in early December, determining a greater need and fewer givers, Arnprior may have benefitted from the spinoff. “Banks, schools, stores, the legion, Knights of Columbus, gave quite a bit this year,” Smith said. “I’m amazed at how generous the town is overall.” However, while the generosity has increased, so has the need. Smith said 20 new families have taken to using the food bank, which is open one Monday per month. The food bank is now sharing best practices with neighbouring food banks in Renfrew and elsewhere. But Tonkin cautioned that donations from Arnprior stay in Arnprior, as is the expectation. She also cautioned that the food bank isn’t mere charity. “It’s about a hand-up, not a handout.”

derek.dunn@metroland.com

The final tally won’t happen for some months, but volunteers at the Arnprior Food Bank say donations were greater than in last year’s holiday season. “Donations were up, and I’d say from right across the community,” said food bank president Kathy Tonkin. “It seemed like everybody was giving.” She said it seemed like every time volunteers checked donation boxes at both No Frills and Metro they were full. And numerous first-time givers participated, along with service groups, schools and businesses. Reid Bros. has given much-needed cash to the food bank for 17 years now. The Madawaska Boulevard car dealership and its customers have donated $122,777.19 in that time. This year it continued the tradition of matching customer donations, and cut a cheque for $7,525. “It goes back a long way and it’ll keep going,” owner Trevor Reid said at the Jan. 3 ceremony. “The need doesn’t go away just because the holidays are over.” Volunteers always appreciate the donation of non-perishable food items, but

My Heart to Yours: Dai’s new CD aids hospitals STEVE NEWMAN steve.newman@metroland.com

Dai Bassett is pleased with his own vocal contributions to his latest album, My Heart to Yours. But he’s convinced Brian Hebert’s new arrangements for the 12 familiar songs will really resonate with listeners. Two dollars from each sale will go to support the hospital in the area where the $20 CD is sold. This is Bassett’s fourth album, and third since immigrating to Canada. He was a dairy farmer and ran a golf business in his native Wales, where he completed his first album, On the Mattress, In the Van. After moving to the Upper Ottawa Valley in 2000, his next albums were Something for Christmas and Three Thumbs Up. He says there was a healthy response to both CDs, with

some ingenuity. Bassett is renowned for his gift of the gab, whether he’s working as a radio host for Valley Heritage Radio, hosting Valley Heritage’s weekly Celtic show, emceeing community events, or performing as a musician and/or comedian. But his latest album has a slightly more serious approach after he was told more people should hear his voice. So he asked Hebert, a world-class fidder from Pembroke, to rearrange a dozen famous songs for him. The album was completed in November at Bob’s Music Plus studio in Pembroke. “Brian has brought an incredible flair to the project,” said Bassett. “It’s totally different from anything I’ve done before, because it’s a completely different direction for me.” The new album’s songs come from North America, Scotland, England and Wales, with such familiar selections as Daydream Believer (originally recorded by The Monkees), Green, Green Grass of Home (written by Claude Putnam Jr., but given international fame by Tom Jones), Could I Have This Dance? (Anne Murray) and The Last Farewell (Roger Whittaker). “A lot of people asked when I was going to do my next album,” said Bassett. Hebert, who’s a member of the Ottawa Valley Country Music Hall of Fame, says he considered Bassett’s voice, phrasing, enunciation and accent when creating the arrangements. With the album finished, Hebert concludes: “I think it has an energy, a vibrancy, a tone colour. “It’s neither traditional or country or pop or European, yet it has all four.” Bassett, who’s a baritone with range to the tenor side, has honed his voice by working with singing coach and opera singer Phil Holmes. But Bassett, 52, says comedy will remain part of his public persona. “I’m not giving up comedy,” he explained. “If I get the opportunity to perform these songs in an evening with comedy, even better.” Bassett also hopes people support My Heart to Yours, since $2 from each $20 purchase will go to the hospital in the area where the album is sold. The CD is being widely distributed, from Carleton Place and Arnprior and up the Valley on both sides of the Ottawa River. Retailers selling My Heart to Yours include Gilk’s Signs and Trophies, Antrim Truck Stop, Galilee Centre and the Seniors at Home office in Arnprior; Nicholson’s in Pakenham; Neat Cafe in Burnstown; and the White Lake General Store.

From pen to pet: A pig tale Daisy a big hit at Arnprior football game COURTNEY SYMONS courtney.symons@metroland.com

You would never call the Egan’s home on Galetta Side Road a pigsty, but there is indeed a pig who calls it home. Daisy May, the pot-bellied pig, resides in the Egan’s kitchen and has done so since being adopted last October. On one particular snowy day, Daisy greeted this reporter in a Santa suit that her owner Diane Egan had given as a Christmas gift. Daisy’s pedicured red toes matched the suit. With apple slices as motivation, Daisy came when called, sat and even did a spin. Egan said the next step is to learn to take a bow. The pig became part of the family after daughter Hayley’s pleas for a pig were finally answered on her birthday. Daisy was in heat when they got her, and as Egan put it, “A pig in heat is a crazy pig.” After getting her spayed, Daisy calmed down significantly. A micro-mini pig like Daisy isn’t supposed to get bigger than 30 pounds. “But buyer beware,” Egan said. “She’s up to about 60, 65 pounds now. My husband keeps saying if she gains two more pounds, she’s going in the frying pan.” A joke, because this pig is as much a house pet as their two dogs. The Egans’ smaller dog, Ruby, curls up next to Daisy in front of the corn stove in the kitchen. But as much as the Egan’s love their unconventional pet, a pig is not for everyone. “You have to have a lot of patience,” Egan said. “She gets into a lot of trouble.” That trouble includes late night fridge raids resulting in broken milk bags, missing apples and plenty of knocked over jars. After that happened a few times, the Egans put a lock on their fridge to keep her out. On garbage day, Daisy has to be kept indoors so she won’t eat the Egan’s and their neighbour’s garbage – something they found out the hard way. “She spreads the garbage all the way

down Galetta Side Road,” Egan said. Another problem that becomes more prominent in the winter is Daisy’s hatred of the cold. One night when the stove went out, Daisy tore apart a dog bed and hoisted it onto her back like a turtle shell for warmth. When she got stuck out on the porch this fall, Daisy burrowed down under the linoleum to harness some heat. In the spring, she digs up flowers in the garden. “You have to have a sense of humour, because they wreck a lot of things,” Egan said. But one problem they don’t have with Daisy is her smell. Contrary to stereotype, Daisy smells as fresh as her name. There is a lot to love about a pot-bellied pet. Egan said Daisy is sensitive and smarter than her dogs. A year ago, Egan’s daughter took Daisy to an Arnprior Redmen football game dressed in a little jersey; a live version of a pig skin. Everyone got a kick out of that, Egan said. Having a strange pet is nothing new for Egan. As a child living in Ottawa, her parents gave her a pony that lived in their garage. “I was the hit of the neighbourhood,” she said. “We had a toboggan that we strapped to him in the winter and all the kids would get on and we’d bomb around.” Similar to that pony, Daisy eats apples and a special mini pig food that Egan buys at a co-op. But she’ll eat just about anything, Daisy said. For others out there who may be considering a pig as a pet, Egan offers some advice. “It’s a big commitment,” she said. “They live to be about 14 years old. And if you’re fussy about your yard … Well, you have to be able to go with the flow.” Egan has no plans to move Daisy out into the barn, because the kitchen is all she has known since moving in. So, for the foreseeable future, Daisy will be camped out in front of the corn stove, keeping warm and festive in her Santa suit.

Changes at the Arnprior-BraesideMcNab Seniors at Home Program have positioned the organization well heading into 2012. The agency, founded in 1980, delivers a variety of home support services to encourage independent living and enhance the quality of life of seniors and those with special needs. It recently saw the addition of two new staffers and the shift to a new position by an existing employee. Nancy Peck began her duties as a seniorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; transportation driver Nov. 21. Her job involves driving residents from the Town of Arnprior and the Township of McNab-Braeside who are 60 years or over, as well as the disabled and those with special needs. Her former career involved working in the international development sector, in the deployment of Canadian civilians, professional and judicial dignitaries, overseas. Peck admitted she â&#x20AC;&#x153;loves being with peopleâ&#x20AC;? and tries to help out whenever she can. A dedicated hockey mom, she and her husband are involved with their three sonsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; hockey teams in town. Having called the Ottawa Valley home for 50 years, Liz Wall joined the Seniors at Home team Dec. 7 as the organizationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s development co-ordinator. She brings to the organization 35 years experience working in the media, advertising and editorial, in print, radio and magazine. She has served on many local boards in Arnprior and is an avid sports enthusiast, known for her local involvement in figure skating, softball, fastball, basketball, volleyball and speed skating. When it comes to fundraising, a key component of her new job. Wall was the director of the Ottawa Valley Bridal Show, and each year the funds raised went to a different charity. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am thankful for this new opportunity in my working career and look forward to working with and for the community seniorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; service agency,â&#x20AC;? Wall said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am anxious to meet all the volunteers who are responsible for the success of agency and, of course, the seniors

whom the agency serves.â&#x20AC;? Wallâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s role will include not only fundraising for the Care Coach Para Transit Service, as well as develop and implement strategies and public relations activities, while also being an ambassador of the program. The third staffer in the mix is not new to the organization, but new to her job. Deborah Miller has worked for the agency for 11.5 years and is now the program co-ordinator. As she describes it, her role is to â&#x20AC;&#x153;coordinate the programs that the agency offers: home maintenance, telephone security, friendly visiting, foot clinic, frozen and hot meals, seniors shopping, Diners Club, friendship days and community garden.â&#x20AC;? She started in her new part-time position Oct. 11 and with experience in various capacities with the organization already, she is looking forward to co-ordinate the services it offers. For agency executive director Dennis Harrington, the staffing changes bring a smile to his face. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m confident, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m happy and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m relieved,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Personality-wise, I think we have three great individuals who will represent the agency well.â&#x20AC;? Harrington said the focus for the agency moving forward will be â&#x20AC;&#x153;developing opportunities within the communityâ&#x20AC;? as well as developing business opportunities. One of the key components this year will be, says Harrington, expanding fundraising and educating the public. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A lot of times we are overlooked. We are overlooked until people need our services,â&#x20AC;? he said. Harrington has been with the Seniors at Home Program for 17 years, having been its executive director since 2002. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Compassion, understanding, patience, confidentiality and loyalty are the basis of how we approach our duty to serve the seniors and disabled in our community,â&#x20AC;? he concluded. The Arnprior-Braeside-McNab Seniors At Home Program is located in the Town Centre at 106 McGonigal St. West, Unit A1. Call 613-623-7981 or visit the website at www.cssagency.ca.

Top riders recognized at final clinic A major success story in 2011 was the Rising Star Series of three horse show clinics in McNab-Braeside. The show-clinics were held at JCS Stables on Scheel Drive. At the final show in September, competitors, coaches and spectators gained knowledge through comments and evaluations from Hunter/Jumper Judge Kitty Bowland of Ottawa. There are a lot of individuals responsible for bringing the horse show clinics together, but the participants are the most important. Julie Skarica of JCS Stables also thanks the generosity of sponsors and the numerous volunteers who help to provide for a safe, fun-filled and exciting day. Results of the final horse show clinic are as follows: Beginner Division (sponsored by McNab Riding School) Walk/Trot Equitation 1st â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Abigail Burton riding Galaxy 2nd â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Erin Mash riding Summer

Foligno right at home with Senators By Rob Brodie OttawaSenators.com Home, it’s often been said, is where the heart is. And with each passing year, Nick Foligno’s connection with Ottawa and the only National Hockey League team he has ever known grows ever stronger. It is simply the right place to be, he’ll tell you, both for him and his wife Janelle, who have eagerly immersed themselves into daily life in the nation’s capital. “My wife and I have been here for five years now and I’ve definitely embraced the people,” said Foligno, 24, the Senators’ first-round pick (28th overall) in the 2006 NHL Entry Draft. “It’s just a quality community. People care about other people and you want to be involved in that. “It’s nice to get involved. It gets your face out there and people realize you’re not just a hockey player. You’re a person. My wife and I both really enjoy getting involved in the community.” For both Nick and Janelle, that includes lending their names to a number of charitable causes in the Ottawa region. It’s something the two natives of Sudbury, Ont., who got married in July, don’t hesitate to do. “We’re getting involved in charities we’re big believers in and want to help push through and it’s made a big difference,” he said. The Folignos are the celebrity chairs for the Ottawa Senators 65 Roses Sports Club’s annual

gala, set for Feb. 23, which raises funds for cystic fibrosis research. They’re also “doing a lot of stuff with cancer,” the disease that killed Foligno’s mother, Janis, two summers ago. Foligno also recently lent his name to the Sens Big Save, a campaign to help Canadian Blood Services increase blood donations during its holiday time of special need. In addition, Janelle has taken time away from her teaching

career to join the cause of F.A.B. Women, an Ottawa-based group that provides support for females who are battling eating disorders. A primary school French immersion teacher for the last three years, Janelle is now supply teaching so she can devote more energy to a charity that Nick says “is close to Janelle’s heart.” She is the group’s educational manager. Of course, the Folignos wouldn’t be in Ottawa without hockey, and he makes it clear

TAMPA BAY LIGHTNING Thursday, Jan. 5, 7:30 p.m., Sportsnet East The Lightning have some serious work to do to get back into the post-season after a surprising run to the Eastern Conference final a year ago. Steven Stamkos has served notice he’s ready to contend for another Rocket Richard Trophy, which goes annually to the NHL’s top goal scorer. Martin St. Louis and Vincent Lecavalier continue to be key cogs in the Bolts’ attack, which also gets valuable contributions from the likes of Teddy Purcell

and Ryan Malone. On the blue line, Marc-Andre Bergeron adds some offensive punch, while Victor Hedman and Pavel Kubina are steadying forces. Mathieu Garon and Dwayne Roloson split the goaltending duties.

PHILADELPHIA FLYERS Sunday, Jan. 8, 5 p.m., Sportsnet East As the season nears its halfway point, the Flyers have again established themselves as a top contender in the Eastern Conference. Claude Giroux has spent much of the past month atop the NHL scoring leaders chart and will make a strong bid for the Art Ross Trophy. As his 40th birthday approaches, Jaromir Jagr keeps showing he still has plenty of game, while Danny Briere and Scott Hartnell are also key

offensive forces. The loss of Chris Pronger for the season is a big blow for the Flyers blue line, which will now lean more heavily on the likes of Kimmo Timonen and Matt Carle. In goal, Ilya Bryzgalov is Philadelphia’s main man.

the passion for the puck game in the capital is something else that makes living here so attractive. “It’s a place where the fans really care about hockey and you want to be in an environment that cares about hockey,” said Foligno. “It’s my first (NHL) team and I have an emotional attachment to it as well. We both enjoy it here.” Foligno was born in Buffalo, when his father, Mike, was a forward with the Sabres. But a pair of trades would lead to the family moving twice — to Toronto and Florida — before Mike’s NHL career was done. “We understand the business of hockey and we know you can’t get too comfortable,” said Foligno of his current stability in Ottawa. “But we’re really happy here and we want to be here for a long time.” Nick and Janelle first met in Sudbury, when he was playing with the Ontario Hockey League’s Wolves. Their families remain there and the Folignos plan to build a summer home in the city that will always be “home base” to them. But Ottawa has gained a special place in their hearts, too. “It’s such a good community

of people in Ottawa,” said Foligno. “It reminds me a lot of Sudbury (that way) … You gain friendships after being here so long, whether it’s restaurant owners or just people that you get to meet over time. You get close

to them and we’re really enjoying having some good friends here now. “(Ottawa) has definitely has become our home and we hope to keep it that way for a long time.”

REMEMBERING THE CHAMPS This postcard size photograph was mailed from Ottawa to Margaret Lawlor of Arnprior on Dec. 23, 1927. A similar photograph is displayed at the Arnprior Museum. Mrs. Lawlor’s grandchildren Mike Kearns of Pembroke and Debbie Vaillancourt of Braeside submitted it. In the photograph of the 1927-28 championship team, in front from left, are Tick Graham, Vesty Sargeant, Buddy Farrel (mascot), Tim Mulvihill and goalie Leo Sargeant; in the middle are coach-manager Bill Short and club president Bill Laderoute; and in back are Harold McGregor, Allie Ferguson, Dalton ‘Dollie’ Olivier, Harry Slaughter, Ken Fraser, Ollie Mulvihill and captain Archie Dimmell.

Packers defeat Thunder with lightning quick goals JEFF MAGUIRE, JOHN CARTER The Arnprior Packers fell behind 2-1 early to the Almonte Thunder in their last game of the 2011 portion of the Junior B schedule Dec. 30. But the Packers responded with seven unanswered goals to defeat the Thunder 8-2 to end 2011 on a high note. The streaking Packers, runaway leaders of the Valley Division, are now among the top five teams in the four-division, 22-team Eastern Ontario Junior Hockey League. Arnprior hasn’t lost since Nov. 13 and in the final 12 games of 2011 they claimed 23 of a possible 24 points. During that span the only blemish on Packers’ record was a 4-4 overtime tie against Ottawa

West Golden Knights, the second place side in the Metro Division, on Dec. 15 in Ottawa. Friday’s game was the only Valley contest on New Year’s weekend. With the win Arnprior moved 12 points ahead of second-place Perth Blue Wings. Both teams have played 30 games. Packers have dominated most games recently and Friday’s home game against third-place Almonte was no exception. Arnprior outshot the visitors 38-27 and scored two power-play markers in 31 seconds in the opening minute of period two, tying and then taking the lead in the game. They never looked back, adding five more goals, including three more in the middle frame and two late in the third.

Despite the loss Almonte (10-12-3-1) remained three points ahead of Renfrew Timberwolves and Stittsville Royals who were tied for fourth place in the six-team division heading into the New Year. Thunder, who trails second-place Perth by nine points, holds three games in hand on both Wolves and Royals and four on Blue Wings. Recently arrived defenceman Kane Abbis-Mills, a Mississippi Mills resident, opened scoring with his first goal in three games for Almonte. It came on a powerplay at 1:21 of the opening period. Mitch Parker, with his first of two, tied it just four minutes, 18 seconds later. Thunder regained the lead when veteran forward Aaron MacCosham scored unassisted at 9:14 of the first.

MacCosham also earned an assist on Abbis-Mills early goal as did Valley scoring leader Derek Lowry who reached 62 points, the fourth best total in the EOJHL. The second and third periods belonged to Arnprior. Shane Smith had a hat trick, including a pair of second period strikes with Dan Weir, the former Perth star, connecting twice to give him 12 points (six goals and six assists) in 11 games for his new team. Weir was traded in exchange for the rights to veteran forward Devon Montgomery. He has a more modest four points in eight games for Wings. See ‘PACKERS TO HOST’ Page 24

School board chairman discusses the year that was Renfrew County District School Board Trustee Dave Shields was acclaimed to his second term as board chairman Dec. 12 along with the vice-chairman Terry Harkins. Following the election, Shields addressed the board. Among his comments were: “In 2011 we have made a great deal of progress in fulfilling many of the initiatives of our strategic plan. As you are aware, communications is a priority of mine and I am pleased that we employed a coop student, Jillian Smith, who worked with us for four months early in the new year to help develop, build and promote the board’s communication plan in direct correlation with the board’s strategic plan; and to advance the marketability of the Renfrew County District School Board. “The draft communications plan that was approved by the board in June called for the hiring of a communication officer. This was accomplished when Jake Davies joined the board in the fall of 2011. “We have also enlisted the services of Steve Blok as an Instructional Technology Leader. Mr. Blok has worked closely with the IT department to champion the effective use of technologies that in-

Renfrew County District School Board vice-chairman Terry Harkins and chairman Dave Shields following the decision they would retain their positions for 2012. crease student engagement and support student achievement for the 21st century classroom. “The IT department continued the implementation of the IT plan and the board’s strategic plan, which included the installation of 193 Interactive White Boards in classrooms, Student Netbook pilots at RCIS and Mackenzie Community School and the provision of a new WAN which provides increased bandwidth to our schools. “As board members witnessed at our November board presentation, the department is also piloting the use of iPads with special needs students. “Our board hosted an all-candidates debate after our board meeting in October. “This initiative was encouraged by the Ontario Public School Board Association (OPSBA) and we were pleased to host an engaging and

lively debate among candidates from the Progressive Conservatives, the Liberals and the New Democratic Party. “This event was successful because it brought education to the forefront. “I would also like to congratulate John Yakabuski, who won the Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke riding handily. “John has been very supportive of our board and has been effective in bringing our issues to the attention of the Minister of Education. “We opened our first K to 12-school in Deep River in September. We are very proud of this state of the art facility that has many enhancements to meet the needs of the Deep River students. In the coming year, we hope to receive final approval for the new K to 12-school in Petawawa. “We are pleased that our board is one of the few in the province who has a very active Parent Involvement Council (PIC) who continue to engage parents in the County and who bring the unique difference and qualities of each community to the forefront of the Board. “They have been instrumental in organizing the PIC Symposium in October, the Director’s Forum with Principals in November and the panel discussion with representatives from CHEO on teenage suicide, depression and bullying in December. “In 2012, we look forward to the implementation of that board’s third and final year of our current strategic plan, the development of a new board logo and motto, and a new board website.”

mixed and produced by Mark Lavin, the producer of one of Canada’s hottest indie bands, Arcade Fire. Stewart said that her music is best described as indie rock, like that performed by fellow Canadians Arcade Fire and Feist. “I’ve been told (I sound like) mellow core” rock, as opposed to hard core, she added. “It’s an extremely exciting time for me.”

The village of Waba is getting the full star studio treatment thanks to a local musical talent, and the magic touch of Arcade Fire’s producer. Waba native Alexandra Stewart, 22, started her musical ascension at the Royal Canadian Conservatory of Music at the age of five. She moved down to Florida to be with her mother, and to attend a high school for the performing arts. “It made a lot of sense,” said Stewart. “It ended up working out well for me.” After that she attended the University of Miami, where she took in the jazz program. After graduation, however, “I knew that I needed to move to New York City and start making music. I decided I was going to make an album.” It did not take much to find her muse of inspiration. “I sat down at the piano and decided I was going to write,” she remembered. She looked around her at the small farm house in New Jersey, owned by her producer, where she was staying while she worked on her album. “I was really inspired by the small town,” she said, which got her thinking about her own small town of Waba. “I’ve been very inspired by it … I think it was less homesick but more of a reflection of my childhood. There is a lot of write about within those ideas.” She said she best recalled Waba Creek and the little red-and-white house she used to live in as a youngster, with a wood stove and a hedge. “Oh, it was very inspiring,” said Stewart. She also smiled at the memory of “a handful of apple trees that I must have climbed every day. “I really honed in on that.” Stewart was impressed that the top-of-the-line studio musicians she has been working with were

also able to “hone in” on the Waba vibe too. “I was able, in so many words, capture Waba,” Stewart said. “Each musician captured the essence of Waba … (and) the story I was trying to tell.” When reached Stewart was on the fourth-to-last day of recording, with only vocals left to get down on tape. In mid-December, the tapes were be sent up to Montreal to be

CELEBRATING 150 YEARS IN ARNPRIOR The congregation of Arnprior’s Emmanuel Anglican church held several special events during 2011 to celebrate the church’s 150th anniversary. One of those was a special plaque presentation Sept. 25 by the Royal Canadian College of Organists. The celebration recognized the church’s historic Casavant organ, which was built in 1900 in Saint-Hyacinthe, Quebec. Parishioners were also treated to a special performance by the Cranmer Singers choir and Gilles M. Leclerc, national president of the Royal Canadian College of Organists on organ. The church-goers chose 12 favourite hymns to be sung at the musical gathering. Among the other dignitaries involved in the celebration were the Rev. Canon Roger A. Young, Royal Canadian College of Organists chair of historic organs John Wanless, organist Frances Macdonnell, the Cranmer Singers and emcee Garth Hampson.

Organist Frances Macdonnell strikes a chord with special guest Gilles M. Leclerc, national president of the Royal Canadian College of Organists. Leclerc was in attendance at a special service to recognize the church’s historic Casavant organ built in 1900 in Saint-Hyacinthe, Que. Below, the plaque, as presented to the Emmanuel Anglican Church by the Royal Canadian College of Organists. The church, currently celebrating its 150th year, acquired its historic Casavant organ in 1900 at a cost of $3,000.
