Gallant mum on possible scandal Former Liberal candidate unaware of robo-calls to riding voters BY DEREK DUNN derek.dunn@metroland.com

The McNab-Braeside Fire Department is dealing out playing cards. Learn why the fire chief is keen on the idea. – Page 2

EMC News – No Liberal supporters in Renfrew-Nippissing-Pembroke have contacted the party over the socalled robo-calls scandal, but a former candidate says nothing less than Canadian democracy itself was compromised if the allegations from some 40 other ridings are true. Christine Tabbert ran for the Liberal party in last year’s federal election, finishing a distant fourth. She harbours no illusions that possible voter suppression measures by the Conservative Party cost her the win. But she said free elections are paramount and

an emergency debate in the House of Commons is needed to secure the credibility of the federal system. “I find the reports very disturbing. The right to freely cast a ballot is the foundation of our democracy,� said Tabbert, a corporate lawyer now living in Toronto. “The reputation of Parliament is at stake.� She encourages anyone who recalls getting calls supposedly from Elections Canada directing them to the wrong voting outlet last May, or claiming to be with the Liberal party but speaking rudely, to call Elections Canada. The allegations of voter suppres-

sion – what some commentators are calling Canada’s Watergate - first emerged late last week when Elections Canada documents were revealed to newspapers, including the Toronto Star. Its investigation examines the link between the Conservatives and an Edmonton-based company that made tens of thousands of automated phone calls, known as robo-calls, to homes throughout the country. All parties use robo-calls, but the charge by opposition parties against the Conservatives is that they may have impersonated Elections Canada officials and deliberately misdirected targeted voters – those likely to vote

Liberal, according to Conservative data - away from their ballot stations. That exceeds typical “dirty tricks� that parties are routinely accused of. If true, the result could be fines or jail time or even the deregistration of MP Cheryl Gallant’s party and liquidation of its assets. Gallant did not return repeated calls from Metroland Media. However, a longtime NDP insider from the riding has joined the growing chorus of those calling for an inquiry, similar to that which exposed the Liberal sponsorship scandal.

EMC News- The importance of working smoke alarms has once again been underscored following a fire in McNab-Braeside Feb. 23. McNab-Braeside Fire Chief Ken Walton says a Thursday evening fire on Burnstown Road caused $45,000 in damage, but could have been much worse. Fortunately, the tenants of the home at 1198 Burnstown Rd., located between Burnstown Road and White Lake, were not there at the time of the fire, said Walton. A neighbour heard the alarms sounding and called 911 immediately. Firefighters got the call around 9:30 p.m. “We had all three stations responding, with about 29 firefighters on-scene for a couple of hours,� said Walton. “We made entry to the house, we went in and con-

ducted a search,� said Walton. Once inside, firefighters confirmed no one was inside, located the fire in the basement and worked quickly to extinguish it. It was lucky the neighbour was outside to hear the smoke alarms, said Walton. “If it weren’t for working smoke alarms there’s a good chance we wouldn’t have gotten there until it was too late.� Firefighters spent about two hours on the scene. The cause is still being investigated, said Walton, adding it is not considered suspicious. DEPARTMENT DISCOUNT

A new department initiative is designed to make it a little easier for residents to keep themselves protected, said Walton. See ‘SMOKE’ Page 2

MB Fire Department issues information cards By Sherry Haaima sherry.haaima@metroland.com

It’s all in the cards for the McNab-Braeside Fire Department. And Fire Chief Ken Walton hopes this is just the beginning of the department’s newest awareness initiative – information cards highlighting different aspects of the department and important fire prevention messages. The first two cards have been issued – truck 9616, a 1996 Spartan Gladiator pumper truck, and truck 9620, a 2010 International 7400 rescue pumper - are the first stars of the show.

“The idea is, if these do as well as we anticipate, we’ll do more cards,” said Walton. The cards won’t always feature vehicles, said Walton, but could highlight firefighters or even Sparky, the department’s popular fire dog mascot. Walton presented the idea to township council Feb. 21. Mayor Mary Campbell praised the card project and the department’s efforts overall and congratulated members on the recent annual winter carnival at McNab Public School. “The carnival was a wonderful success,” said Campbell.

“It’s such a valuable piece of equipment,” he said. The importance of working smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors is an ongoing focus for the department, says Fire Prevention Officer Karen Barsoski. “Since our department is a major advocate of working smoke alarms and CO detectors, we are offering mail-in rebates to residents of the township who would like to purchase new units for their house,” said Barsoski in a press release. Pre-addressed, stamped envelopes and coupons are available at the McNab-Braeside Township office to make it easier for residents to claim the rebate, which offers $2 off smoke alarms and $5 in savings off Kidde brand units available at Arnprior Home Hardware and other retails, added Barsoski.

County makes remuneration official STEVE NEWMAN steve.newman@metroland.com

EMC News – A new base salary for Renfrew County councillors (from zero to $3,000) and an increased base salary for the warden (from $21,209 to $25,000) were supported during last month’s budget workshop. Formal approval of the new levels of remuneration occurred during the January session of county council. The multi-part resolution covered the councillors’ new base salaries; the warden’s increased base salary; the new base salary of $1,000 for standing committee chairs and $500 for committee vice-chairs; and the maintained meeting per diems of $103 for half-day meetings and $193 for full-day meetings. The resolution also called for a review of council remunerations in the last year of each term of council. At the same meeting, the county maintained its practice of

following the mileage rate established by the federal Treasury Board. The board increased its mileage rate in December 2011 from 52 to 53 cents per kilometre for the first 5,000 kilometres, and from 46 to 47 cents per kilometre for additional mileage. The county followed suit at the Jan. 25 meeting of county council. AMO FEES

At the same meeting, county council also approved paying the county’s 2012 membership fee with the Association of Municipalities of Ontario. The rate jumped from $7,290, including HST, to $7,524. That is a 3.2 per cent increase over last year’s membership fee.

Petition circulates to create town dog park BY DEREK DUNN derek.dunn@metroland.com

EMC News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; A petition is circulating around Arnprior to create a dog park. Dog owner Megan Noel lives downtown, has two huskies and a new baby. Huskies are strong animals and less aware of boundaries than other dogs. She said it is a challenge to leave the house for fresh air and exercise with the crew; the dogs are tough to keep in toe while caring for a newborn.

It proves a bit of a danger on the sidewalks for all involved. But she would prefer not having to drive into Bruce Pit dog park in Bells Corners. Noel started the petition last week, which will be available at Pet Valu, Arnprior District Humane Society, Arnprior Animal Hospital, and possibly other locations. She said it will help bring together dog owners as a community, but could be beneficial to bylaw officers if they could arrive at one location to get to know

Independent inquiry into robo-calls needed: NDP Continued from front

â&#x20AC;&#x153;It calls it into question,â&#x20AC;? she said. For their part, the Conservatives have dismissed a â&#x20AC;&#x153;rouge operatorâ&#x20AC;? that could be behind the robo-calls. Prime Minister Stephen Harper said the partyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s top brass knew nothing of the alleged tactics. McSheffrey isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t buying it. She said the lone party member was too young and likely couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t afford to pay the company for that many calls on his own. She said it would take people with tremendous knowledge and money to orchestrate something of that magnitude. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t strike me as right that a kid this young would have that kind of money,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s kind of unprecedented. No one has interfered to this degree in an election.â&#x20AC;? Harper fielded most of the questions in Parliament this week, saying if opposition parties have evidence they ought to pass it along to Elections Canada. The NDP and Liberals said Harperâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s party has all the information required to get to the bottom of the scandal.

provide ground covering and water bowls at $26,100. He said using part of the beachfront across from McLean Park would be the ideal location. Right now, some dog owners use the fencedin ball diamonds. There is concern of dog owners not picking up after their animals in many parks. Coun. Mark Willmer, who chairs the parks and recreation committee, said while a dog park wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t solve that problem entirely, if the idea was brought before council it would likely be referred to his committee for consideration. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is something we would be willing to discuss,â&#x20AC;? Willmer said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t comment yet.â&#x20AC;?

â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think there should be a full, independent inquiry,â&#x20AC;? said Sue McSheffrey. â&#x20AC;&#x153;All parties are using new technologies, but not to win an election by deceiving people.â&#x20AC;? Manitoba NDP MP Pat Martin questioned â&#x20AC;&#x153;the legitimacy of the Conservativesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; 39 per cent majority mandate.â&#x20AC;? Across the 14 most closely contested Conservative ridings in Canada, 6,201 is the combined margin of victory. To have won those 14 seats, 6,215 votes is all that was needed by the nearest parties in each race. Martin, well-known for tough talk, likened the tactics to those seen in impoverished totalitarian regimes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;How is this different from a bunch of goons with clubs blocking the door to a voter station as weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve seen in Third World countries,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Because the net effect is the same.â&#x20AC;? When McSheffrey was asked if the Conservatives are an illegitimate government, as Martin intimated, she was terse.

dogs and their owners. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think there is a lot more dog owners in the area than people realize,â&#x20AC;? she said, noting that she meets with others on a lake during winter to let their dogs run free. Come spring, that location begins to melt. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It would bring the community together and be a positive thing for the town.â&#x20AC;? Parks and recreation director Glenn Arthur was asked two years ago to evaluate the Brockville dog park to see if a similar type would work here. The last council was pressed by some dog owners to create a park at that time. Arthur said the project eventually fell to budgetary pressures, but remains in his departmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 10-year capital plans budget. At the time, he estimated the cost to fence in an area,

Contractor given 30 days in jail Hubert Belisle, operating as H.B. Expert Pro-Renovations in Renfrew, has pleaded guilty to two counts of engaging in an unfair practice under Ontarioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Consumer Protection Act, 2002. The plea was entered Feb. 16 and Belisle was sentenced to 30 days in jail. In spring 2009, Belisle entered into agreements with two homeowners in Ottawa to perform various repairs and improvements to their homes. A news release from the Ministry of Consumer Services says that, in both cases, work began later than promised and the work was substandard. In one case, the work was not completed. Belisle was also sentenced to restitution orders totalling $12,500.

Belisle is already subject to a probation order imposed in August 2011 with conditions that include forbidding him from entering into any consumer agreement with a consumer unless the agreement complies with the Consumer Protection Act, 2002 and from accepting money in advance of completing the work. Ontarioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Consumer Protection Act, 2002 provides for fines of up to $250,000 for corporations and $50,000 for individuals convicted of offences. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Home reno is timely, especially with spring around the corner.

THIS WEEK’S FEATURE

derek.dunn@metroland.com

EMC News – On the same night CBC aired the mini-movie John A.: Birth of a County, another station was broadcasting the Oscars. Few would argue which garnered more viewers in Canada. Some would say taxpayers contribute to CBC to share Canadian stories in spite of marketplace demands. Others would say CBC should be sold and made to compete in the private sector. Cheryl Gallant, Renfrew-NippissingPembroke MP, would side with the latter. On Jan. 30 she presented a petition in the House of Commons calling for an end to the $1.1 billion taxpayers contribute to the CBC every year. None of the three Conservative MPs who presented the petition stated how many people signed on, and the issue doesn’t appear anywhere on Gallant’s website, but that doesn’t stop CBC supporters from speaking against her position. “I’m a staunch supporter of the CBC,”

said Christine Tabbert, the Liberal candidate who lost to Gallant in the May 2 election. “It binds us as a nation and helps us understand one another.” Tabbart refers to the CBC as a “public broadcaster” similar to what many advanced western nations have. Opponents call it a “state run” broadcaster like in China. “The government doesn’t control CBC, it’s an arm’s length body,” Tabbert said. “If (the Conservative government) did, it would be a lot less unhappy with the coverage it gets.” She adds that CBC Television brings in advertising revenue to offset costs. Still, her main point is that when she was growing up in the Pembroke area, CBC was often the only television and radio available in her house. Others in remote areas of Canada would say the same to this day. More importantly, though, its mandate is to have Canadians telling Canadian stories to Canadians. “If it were sold off, they would be a

for-profit organization without that mandate,” Tabbert said. Local NDP stalwart Sue McSheffrey hasn’t seen Gallant’s petition, but said selling off the CBC would “awful.” “We are already saturated in American culture,” McSheffrey said. “CBC doesn’t do that. It is an independent voice which in many ways is the Canadian voice.” Opponents say the news portion of CBC, both television and radio, operates under a left-wing bias. McSheffrey insists that CBC isn’t far enough to the left for extreme leftists and not far enough to the right for extreme right wingers. She said the Conservatives are getting donations from private broadcasters that would like to elbow one of the few competitors left in Canada from the media industry. “I believe this is the philosophy the Conservatives have been serving for a long time,” she said. Gallant did not return repeated phone calls asking for an interview on the petition.

OPP issue warning over grandma scams

R0011301027

Arnprior OPP are reminding people to be careful of anyone requesting they provide money to assist a fictitious relative or some one who has been arrested and requires bail money. There are also several other scams in which people are told they have won money but need to send some funds first

to secure their prize. Others want you to hold onto millions of dollars as their country is under siege, etc. There are over-payment scams for Internet purchases; the list of deceptions is virtually endless. Over the past few weeks Arnprior OPP officers have been receiving complaints

375 DANIEL ST. S, ARNPRIOR

of a scam in which criminals are contacting unsuspecting people and identifying themselves as a distant relative or grandchild who has been arrested for various offences, usually impaired driving, and are in dire need of cash. Before sending money, obtain as much information as possible about the caller (phone numbers, addresses, etc.), contact other family members to determine if the call is genuine

and contact police if you are unable to confirm the person’s identity. Police will investigate the complaint. The Arnprior OPP detachment thanks the volunteers from Renfrew County Victim Crisis Assistance & Referral Service for the support provided to local victims of crimes and tragic circumstances. If you are interested in becoming a volunteer, call 1-877-568-5730.

Persistent scam artist meets his match By JOHN CARTER

The calls kept coming daily and at one point, the callers kept hitting redial in an effort to wear her down, she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They were very persistent.â&#x20AC;? Even when she told the callers she had reported them to the police, she received another call three hours later claiming she had won $3.5 million. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I told them again Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d reported them to the anti-fraud squad and to â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;leave me aloneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;.â&#x20AC;?

EMC News - The scam artists picked the wrong person when they tried to separate Arnpriorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Donna Barbe from her money. Barbe is a member of the Arnprior Community Policing Committee and her son is a police officer. So she knew right away that the phone call Jan. 27 telling her she had won $2.5 million and a new Mercedes Benz was a scam. Particularly when the caller asked her to go to Western Union and mail him $1,250 so he could ensure she received her winnings. Barbe rejected the offer outright, telling

That didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t work, so eventually she had to take steps to block the calls. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not fun being plagued by scam artists,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was really inconvenient.â&#x20AC;? Barbe found out the calls were coming from Jamaica from prepaid cell phone numbers. During one call she could clearly hear a rooster crowing in the background, despite a denial by the caller, who claimed it was his pager tone. Another time when she heard the crowing, the caller maintained she was hallucinating. When she reported the calls to police, they referred her to the Canadian Anti-fraud Centre

and its Phonebusters section. She said she shared the particulars of the calls to Phonebusters and is speaking out to warn others about the scam. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Because they are so persistent, some people might fall for it,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d hate to see them get any money from anyone.â&#x20AC;? When people get such calls, â&#x20AC;&#x153;the best thing to do is hang up,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Once they get their grip into you, they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to let go.â&#x20AC;?

Importing â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;date rapeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; drug results in charges The Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) intercepted a package on Feb. 22 that was sent from the Netherlands to an address in McNab Braeside Township. The package contained four litres of gamma butyrlactone (GBL), a substance used to produce Gamma Hydroxybutrate (GHB). GHB is commonly abused for its depressant and intoxicating effects and is also known as the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;date rape drug, utilized by sexual predators. The Organized Crime Enforcement Bureau (OCEB), drug enforcement unit with assistance of the CBSA executed a search warrant on Feb. 23, at the McNab Braeside residence. Inside the residence, a GHB lab was located, along with large amounts of other powdered substances, including the designer drug â&#x20AC;&#x153;bath salts.â&#x20AC;? Bath salts is a designer drug, meaning that they are substances

that have been manufactured using legal chemicals, where retailers are able to legally market and sell them. Bath salts produce effects that are similar to stimulants such as methamphetamines and cocaine. BIG HAUL

The following seizures were made as result of the investigation: â&#x20AC;˘ 500 ml of suspected GHB â&#x20AC;˘ Chemicals related to the production of GHB, about 5.5 litres of GBL â&#x20AC;˘ Two kilograms of suspected bath salts â&#x20AC;˘ A large amount of additional powdered substances believed to be controlled substances and designer drugs â&#x20AC;˘ Computer and several hard drives â&#x20AC;˘ Paperwork and documentary evidence â&#x20AC;˘ Mace â&#x20AC;&#x201C; pepper spray

The estimated street value of the 500 ml of GHB is $1,000 Canadian currency. It is estimated that with the additional GBL seized, (four litres by the CBSA upon interception of the package and the 1.5 litres seized at the residence) about 11 litres of GHB could be produced, with a potential street value of $22,000. Bath Salts can be sold up to $100 per gram, estimating the value to be about $200,000. A 22-year-old man from McNab Braeside Township was arrested and charged with the importation of GBL and production of GHB. He was released on conditions and is scheduled to appear in Ontario Provincial Court in Renfrew on the April 25. The OPP want to warn members of the public that taking any drug that is not prescribed or produced by a pharmaceutical company is always dangerous.

Pension system not unsustainable, says MP’s opponents BY DEREK DUNN derek.dunn@metroland.com

EMC News – Despite a report tabled in the House of Commons showing the Conservative government overestimated by millions of dollars the amount it will pay out in Old Age Security (OAS) this year, MP Cheryl Gallant’s website on Feb. 28 still says it “will become unsustainable in the long-run.” Most Canadians were surprised when the government floated the idea of upping the eligibility age from 65 to 67 in order to help offset costs of the system. Gallant didn’t return repeated calls asking

for an interview on the issue. But Christine Tabbert, who lost as a Liberal to Gallant in the May 2 election, said it is unfair to change the eligibility rules on people who counted on retiring at 65. “It’s an appalling breach of trust to all of a sudden change the rules,” Tabbert said. “It doesn’t need to be changed. I don’t know why someone whose riding is filled with seniors would support an idea like that. There is no financial impetrative to it.” Liberal finance critic Scott Brison cited experts from the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development, leading universi-

ties, and the federal government who said the OAS program does not face major challenges. Canada’s parliamentary budget officer determined OAS is sustainable beyond 2082, and that payment costs today are 2.4 per cent of national GDP. “Conservatives like Cheryl Gallant are really trying to raid your retirement savings to pay for their extreme ideological agenda,” Brison wrote in an email. “They say current seniors won’t see their benefits cut, but they aren’t saying anything about tomorrow’s seniors – hard-working Canadians who have based their retirement plans

around having old age pensions available to them.” Sue McSheffrey, a member of the local NDP, said OAS goes primarily to seniors earning less than $25,000 a year. She is concerned that having a 65-year-old person in a physically demanding job like construction or waitressing will be to much for them if they must work to 67. “We have one of the best pension plans in the world,” McSheffrey said. “It’s fine for some. But a construction worker, at 67, their body’s given out by then.”

Library to host Information Technology Fair 2012 on March 10 This is I.T. - Information Technology Fair 2012 is coming to Arnprior on March 10. Experts on personal devices such as e-readers, cell phones, digital cameras and computers of all types including tablets, will be on hand to answer questions. The event is being hosted by the Arnprior Public Library.

gy Fair will also allow participating businesses to feature some of their new stock. “It’s a win/win situation” said DeLuca. “People get the opportunity to see the extent of local business expertise while assisting the community with their devices.” Participating businesses include Mark Cassanto & Asso-

Students, including a contingent from St. Joseph’s in Arnprior, group leaders and principal Brennan Trainor at St. Joseph’s high school orientation.

St. Joseph’s students attend high school orientation Jaguar Journal

EMC Lifestyle – On Friday, Feb. 10, students and staff of St. Joseph’s Catholic High School welcomed a total of 162 Grade 8 students from elementary schools within the Renfrew County Catholic District School Board. The elementary schools included St. James Catholic School in Eganville, St. Joseph’s in Calabogie, St. Joseph’s in Arnprior, Renfrew and District Christian School, St. Michael’s in Douglas, and our very own Grade 8 students. The orientation day was led and organized by the SJHS Student Council. The day started off with a welcoming ceremony in the gym, including a wel-

come speech by principal Mr. Brennan Trainor, and Prime Minister Julia Rowat. As a way for students to introduce themselves to their future classmates, we held a giant handshake in the gymnasium This is an activity where all visiting students lined up in two lines and went around and shook each student’s hands. Students were then mixed into groups of about 14, with a member from student council as the group leader. Teams were then oriented with what SJHS has to offer through a fun scavenger hunt which brought the visiting students to such areas as the library, foods room, cafeteria and office. One of the stops on the scavenger hunt participation in an improvisation game with

Mr. Jordan DeBruyn’s Grade 10 drama class. At lunch, a students versus teachers, volleyball game was held, along with performances by the SJHS Blues Guys, jazz band, and choir. QUESTIONS

Subsequent to this, students had a time to ask any questions they had about going to SJCHS in the fall or about anything our school has to offer. In the afternoon, after the students had some time to get to know each other, Mr. Mark Valliquette’s gym glass organized a game called A Minute to Win It, with which students were given certain tasks to do within 60 seconds. As a closure to the wonderful day, a group photo was

New Toronto Furniture Show Introductions

organized with all of Grade 8 students, group leaders and Mr. Trainor. A video montage of all the students, and a video of why students like SJCHS, was played before the students returned to their own schools. Overall, the day was a great success. Hopefully, our orientation day activities helped most, if not all, of the Grade 8 students become more familiar with SJCHS and better pre-

pare them to enter Grade 9 in the fall of 2012. Feb. 16, SJHS held an information night for the parents of the students who joined us on the orientation day. This was a great opportunity for parents to ask any questions and to become familiar with the school their child will be attending in the 2012/13 school year. Feb. 15, St. Joseph’s Catholic High School welcomed

EDITORIAL

Public-private partnerships or a slippery slope When does too much private impede the public good? When does too much public impede the private good? Striking the right balance can be difficult. People like their public health care, well, public, as the name suggests. Everyone remembers horror stories from our American friends, of people losing their houses because they canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t afford hospital bills, or people calling out to loved ones as they are being loaded in to the back of an ambulance â&#x20AC;&#x201C; â&#x20AC;&#x153;Meet me at the hospital. My credit card is on my dresser.â&#x20AC;? We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to go down the road suggested by former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin â&#x20AC;&#x201C; in conversation with This Hour Has 22 Minutes â&#x20AC;&#x201C; that Canada revert back to a private health care system. But the winds are changing. A very interesting person was in our midst last week, one Pat Delahunty, founder of Revitalize Lives, a treatment program for young people and adults in west Ottawa. Delahunty was attending the Municipal Drug Strategy Networking Day at the Brunton Community Hall in Blacks Corners, Beckwith Township,

last Friday, Feb. 24. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not here to empty peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pocketsâ&#x20AC;Śweâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re trying to help that (waiting lists), with people who can afford to pay for it,â&#x20AC;? he said of his fee-based service, which he said was becoming more of the norm. At the same time, Delahunty stated that there is a three to four month waiting list for admittance to the Royal Ottawa Hospital. If his organization has been around for 18 years, how much of a strain has he really taken off of the waiting lists? In the very same hall just a few days earlier, the Lanark Landowners Association had held court with a public meeting on the proposed official plan for Lanark County. They too had struck their usual â&#x20AC;&#x153;get the government off of my land, and outta my life,â&#x20AC;? tone. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I will never be government funded,â&#x20AC;? he said emphatically. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to be government funded. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want government institutions telling me how to run the program. I know how to run the program. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need someone telling me that.â&#x20AC;? We feel that Delahunty is doing truly commendable work.

And for all of the bellyaching about keeping our health care system purely public, all one has to do is look across the Ottawa River to Quebec, where one can access private MRI machines for a fee. Good ole social democratic Quebec has had a form of two-tier healthcare for years. Now, with last monthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s apocalyptic Drummond Report to the Ontario government, it appears that we may all have to swallow hard and accept some manner of private involvement in our health care system. Bill Macdonald, the Liberal candidate in last Octoberâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s provincial election remarked during a debate in Carleton Place last September that the Tories closed hospitals, while his party opened new hospitals, and expanded existing ones. Now, Macdonaldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s party may face the unpalatable prospect of having to close hospitals, if it does not allow some more private care. We feel that the likes of Delahunty can coexist with the private care sector. But we cannot have doctors hopping from one to the other, as seen in countries like Ireland, where doctors say they are overextended at the public clinic

this week â&#x20AC;&#x201C; but they can see you at their private practise on the weekend. And itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not just health care that Delahunty is interested in. The Perth Civitan Club paid the bill for his speaking fee for when he spoke at St. Johnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Catholic High School and Perth and District Collegiate Institute back in December. He also revealed at the meeting that he is working on a program that he hopes will be taught in area schools. This too is commendable, but we are not sure if he is looking for the school board to pay for the program and, if he is, that raises another question about private interests formulating curriculum. Shutting the school house door to private interests completely is a non-starter. A new agreement between Irish and Canadian colleges highlighted the fact that Irish colleges had the inside track in working with business to educate students they would actually employ with the skills they need. But we need to draw the line somewhere and find out just how far we are comfortable in letting the private sector enter, or even edge out, the public sector.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Poop and Scoopâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; is an all season issue and wintertime is no exception To the editor: I am a dog owner who has the privilege of walking through Gillies Grove on a regular basis and enjoys the wonderful environment that the Grove has to offer. In recent weeks however, it has become abundantly apparent that some others who walk their dogs are being negligent in observ-

ing the basic rules of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Poop and Scoopâ&#x20AC;? to the extent that the dog litter has become a chronic problem. We in Arnprior are privileged to have a variety of pathway systems which are available to the public for their enjoyment whether it is for exercise, an outing with then family, or for dog walking.

To the editor: According to Hansard, several Conservative MPs in our ‘Canadian Government’, including the representative from Renfrew-NipissingPembroke, have been presenting petitions from their constituents requesting the elimination of funding to the CBC. Ms. Gallant’s petition requests the sale of the CBC. I do believe my friends and I live in this riding. I have never been presented with such a petition, but if I had, I would never have signed it. The CBC is a public broadcasting entity, free of government interference. The MPs are muzzled. Is that why a free broadcaster is a threat? Reports are evenly presented and without bias. It keeps us in touch with our fellow Canadians. It introduces and highlights Canadian talent. CBC television dramas are picked up by countries around the world. The news is Canadian and free of American overtones. The comedies showcase our sense of humour and ability to laugh at ourselves. I would far rather watch or listen to one of these programs than the reality tripe from over the border. Sadly, the cutbacks in funding have affected some of the programming and yet in spite of that, we can be proud of our CBC. One by one Canadian companies are becoming foreign-owned. This recent trip to China by the prime minister frightens me. Chinese government interests own a good part of Alberta Tar sands companies. No wonder the push is on to send Canadian oil to China. Why are we sending our raw materials over-

seas to be processed and sent back to us as inferior products? Think of the carbon footprint growing as the ships wend their way across the ocean (and occasionally having a spill)? It is time we take our country back for Canadians and the last thing we need to do is make our next-door neighbour angry. As a country we were known throughout the world for our concern for the health of the planet. Sadly, I am ashamed to say, that that is no longer the case. The almighty dollar trumps the environment. Concern for the pristine wilderness and the lands of our First Nations’ communities have little value when the moguls of Alberta must receive their homage. Canada is being divided as a result of 39 per cent of the last vote. We are Canada and our government is the ‘Government of Canada’. It is not ‘our new government’;’ the Conservative Government’; and certainly not ‘the Harper Government’. Subtly, the names have been changed, but then too, so has what is important to us as Canadians. If we lose the CBC, we lose much of our Canadian identity. CBC reminds us what is special about us. A friend from British Columbia who had moved around the country said that the CBC always made her feel at home, no matter where she lived in Canada. So, make a noise and beat the drum for the freedom of our own Canadian Broadcaster, free of government censorship and interference. Skippy Hale Calabogie

est dwellers versus those that are urban fringe dwellers? Are our fears and irritation about these animals justified? Can our relations with them be better managed, using better strategies and techniques? Is there a balance of nature and do wolves and coyotes have a beneficial role in it?

NATURE

The annual nesting season has begun Process has already begun EMC Lifestyle - When we think of a season for nesting birds, summer usually comes to mind. The vast majority of our songbirds, which are now beginning to feel the nervous energy behind migration starting to stir in their veins, do not even return until the risk of frost is banished and the promise of insect meals is fulfilled. Yet, some birds are not only thinking about nesting, they have already started the process. Locally, two species are either finishing off their nests or are already placing eggs into them. Great horned owls

are the first to nest but unlike most other early nesters, they do not make their own nests. They usurp the still-vacant nests of crows and hawks, which is likely one reason they start nesting so early: the nest makers have not yet returned to reclaim their nests. Great horned owls usually lay two eggs, a couple of days apart, and start incubation right away. Only the female incubates and the male brings his mate food on a nightly basis. Common ravens are also starting to nest but they build their own egg holders. They build massive stick structures placed on cliff ledges or high

Michael Runtz Natureâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Way

up in towering trees. Ravens have also taken to nesting on human structures including train trestles (as near Morris Island), powerline towers, and the top of silos. Ravens lay usually five eggs that, like those of owls, are incubated only by the female, the process lasting around three weeks. Since ravens build their own nests, the question arises as to why they nest so early. It may be because the sites they choose are not easy to find, with more demand than supply. Few cliffs offer more than one suitable ledge, which is perhaps why these clever birds are regularly using human-made structures. A bit farther north, another

species is currently nest building. GRAY JAYS

Gray jays are boreal forest birds that nest as close by as Mt. St. Patrick and Golden Lake, with Algonquin Park being home to many more of these affable birds. There, they have been extensively studied for nearly 40 years by Dan Strickland, retired chief park naturalist. Currently, Strickland is exploring spruce fringes around creeks and lakes daily in search of jay nests. No doubt he has already found a number, which he will visit later in the season to put identifying coloured bands on the nestlingsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; legs.

Volunteers needed for 150th celebrations Celebrations June 8-10 at RSP Arnprior celebrates its 150th birthday this year, and with plans well underway for a memorable celebration on June 8 to 10, the organizing committee is looking for one more pieces to finish the puzzle â&#x20AC;&#x201C; volunteers. Events will be held throughout the weekend of June 8 to 10, with the majority of the action taking place at Robert Simpson Park. With hundreds of people expected to attend, parking and security are key areas where volunteers are required.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Volunteers are extremely important to make sure things run smoothly at an event like this,â&#x20AC;? said Glenn Arthur, a member of the organizing committee. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re looking for volunteers to help with parking, security, but weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re hoping to find people to help in other areas. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We also need people who will wear period-dress costumes â&#x20AC;&#x201C; there are lots of jobs

and if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re interested in helping out, let us know.â&#x20AC;? Even if you can only volunteer for a few hours, every little bit helps, added Arthur. If you are interested in volunteering to help out with events that weekend, you are encouraged to contact the committee at 613-623-7301, via email at arnprior150@ gmail.com or visit our Facebook page at www.facebook. com/arnprior150.

The jewelery allows Dan to readily identify individual birds and follow their movements in the future. Gray jays build bulky nests in tall spruces. Obviously they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t face a shortage of nest sites. Instead, their drive to nest early comes from their need to store a sufficient amount of food to sustain them through the next winter. By nesting early, they and their offspring have adequate time to prepare for the next winter. So while winter is giving its last gasps, a few birds are already preparing for their next major challenge, which is keeping hungry mouths full of food.

Gun show in Renfrew features 100-plus exhibits EMC Events - When events involving outdoor pursuits appear on the calendar, then surely spring canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be far behind? Valley Outdoors Promotions, which operates several trade shows in Eastern Ontario annually, has announced a recent addition to its eventâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s list is coming right up. The second annual Renfrew Gun and Hunting Show will be staged at the Renfrew Armouries on Saturday, March 10 and Sunday, March 11. Dave Arbour, chief organizer of the venture, says the two-day activity offers something for every individual who enjoys hunting or is interested in the sport of shooting. Arbour also operates the

Brockville Gun Show (May 12), the Valley Gun and Hunting Show in Carp (Sept. 1 and 2) and the Havelock Gun and Hunting Show (Sept. 15). â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have over 120 tables booked in Renfrew which is up from last year. With so many vendors this time there will be a good variety available for hunters and gun enthusiasts. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There will be lots of everything related to the sport,â&#x20AC;? he notes, adding that guns and hunting-related products will make up the bulk of the displays. Arbour is hopeful good attendance will help make the second year show a fixture on Valley Outdoors Promotionsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; schedule. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Obviously we are look-

ing for a big turnout. We think this is definitely the right location,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The more people the better.â&#x20AC;? Admission to the show is $7 with children under 12 years of age admitted free, if accompanied by an adult. Saturday, March 10, the show hours are 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Sunday, March 11, it will run from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. There is plenty of parking available. For information on the Renfrew gun and hunting event and all of the upcoming trade shows managed by Arbour and Valley Outdoors Promotions, visit the website www. valleysportsmanshow.com.

EMC Lifestyle- My name is Michaela Lapierre. I am in Grade 11 at Arnprior District High School doing co-op at the Arnprior Chronicle-Guide. I will be here until June 18, 2012 to let readers know what is going on at the school. Almost every day I will be going up to the newspaper to learn new things. Whatever I learn or do, I have to go back to the school and write what I did into a log so that my teacher, Shirley Stevenson, knows I am learning and doing things. The main reason I am doing my co-op position at The Arnprior Chronicle-Guide is because I would like to learn how to properly take photos. I would also like to learn how to write stories that go along with the photos. By the end of this semester, I hope to know a lot more about photography and journalism then I do now.

Although I don’t have many hobbies or interests I do enjoy a couple of things. I enjoy hanging out with friends, baking, swimming, basketball, volleyball and of course, photography and journalism. When I am not doing any of these things, I am relaxing at home and watching movies. In summer 2011, I bought myself a new camera and started taking a couple pictures with it. After a bit, I realized the pictures the camera took weren’t the best. I am hoping to start saving up this coming summer to buy myself a new and better camera. If I do happen to buy a new camera, I will know how to take pictures and write stories because of the help from the co-op position. Before I thought about photojournalism, I was going to try to get a co-op position with

On to second round for Arnprior Junior B Packers Sherry Haaima

“Then we pretty much dictate the game and we’re hard to stop,” he said.

sherry.haaima@metroland.com

EMC Sports-The Arnprior Junior B Packers move on to the next round of Eastern Ontario Junior Hockey League playoffs after a convincing four-game sweep of rival Renfrew Timberwolves. Packers beat the Wolves 6-1 Sunday night at the Mate-way Activity Centre to take the series, one that Arnprior coach Bill Griese said was closer than the actual numbers show. “The whole series was closer than it looked,” said Griese. “It was quite a tight series.” Packers now await the winner of the Almonte ThunderPerth Blue Wing series, which is sitting at three games to one for Perth. The Packers had their work cut out for them with the Wolves, said Griese. “We hadn’t really seen them play much since they regrouped after Christmas,” he said. Goaltender Matt Couvrette made a huge difference in game four, said Griese, especially in the first period, when the Packers were slow to get going. “Matty made five or six great stops when we were shorthanded,” said Griese. Teddy Suckow was another standout in the final game,

The Arnprior Junior B Packers celebrate at the Ma-te-way Activity Centre after sweeping the Renfrew Timberwolves four games straight. scoring a natural hat trick and almost adding fourth goal. The Packers now have some time on their hands and will focus on improving their power play and first period performance. In terms of the teams they could face, Griese says Almonte’s young team makes

him a bit nervous. “They just go out and play and have fun,” he said. Perth has strong goaltending, so Arnprior has to be prepared. Griese noted this is the third time in five years the Packers have made the division finals. Home game crowds have

been good, he said, encouraging fans to continue to support the guys. ARNPRIOR 6, WOLVES 1

In a home game that was rescheduled for Saturday after Friday’s snowstorm, the Wolves came out swinging

and it was Couvrette who once again kept Arnprior in the game, said Griese. “Renfrew came out and jumped on us a bit,” said Griese. As in the final game, there was no stopping the Packers, who are hard to keep up with once they find their legs.

The Packers were outshot 17-6 but survived a goalless opening stanza before turning up the tempo in the second period. Matt Crozier, Casey Doner, Taylor Collins and Parker Davies helped Arnprior to a 4-1 lead. Collins’ was a crucial marker. Shortly after Renfrew’s Maxime Lamontagne had cut the Wolves’ deficit to 2-1, the Arnprior captain netted a tideturning shorthanded goal on a fine individual effort at 12:32. Davies upped the ante to 41 in the period’s last minute. Shane Smith made it 5-1 when his shot from centre ice took an amazing bounce and eluded Wolves netminder Richard Barr. Troy Gauthier took over between the pipes and held the Packers scoreless the rest of the way. Brett Lewandowsky notched Renfrew’s second goal with 6:57 remaining. Matt Couvrette bought his teammates time to get on track with a solid 31-save effort in the Packers goal crease. -with files from Peter Clark

The proposed SCOP is intended to provide a broad land use framework, which recognizes and supports local municipal Official Plans. The County chose to combine an Integrated Community Sustainable Plan (Sustainable Lanark) with the Official Plan. The result is a hybrid plan, a first in Ontario. The SCOP balances the implementation of land use policies through traditional tools (the Planning Act) with direct action plans designed to ensure integration of sustainable practices throughout the County. The result is this Plan will meet the County’s obligation under the Municipal Funding Agreement administered by the Federation of Canadian Municipalities (FCM) and ensure continued access to significant funding generated by the federal gas tax (County allocation $1.7 million annually).

Valley readies for worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s largest broomball event desmond.devoy@metroland.com

EMC Sports â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The 2012 World Broomball Championships could bring as much as $3.4 million to the local economy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very similar to hockey,â&#x20AC;? explained John Dalgity, one of the co-hosts of the event, to the un-initiated at a Carleton Place town council meeting on Feb. 14. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s played on ice, but you wear shoes. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s full-body contact. The nets are a bit bigger.â&#x20AC;? The championships will be held at sporting venues in Beckwith Township, Carleton Place, Almonte, Pakenham, Arnpior and Kanata from Oct. 29 to Nov. 3. The Ottawa Valley will be joining a distinguished list of international communities that will host the event, which was first held in Victoria, B.C., in 1991. It was held in Innsbruck, Austria, last year, and will be held in Japan next year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is the first time it will be held in a small town,â&#x20AC;? said Dalgity, though he was quick to add that while the towns may be small, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re mighty, and punch above their weight. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Some of the best players are from this area,â&#x20AC;? he said. Dalgity also noted the competition will be a boon for the local economy, with a predicted $3.4 million expected in tourism benefits. About 400 rooms have been booked off for attendees at hotels in Carleton Place, Kanata and Arnprior. Up to 14 different countries, from Japan to Finland, Australia to Italy and Slovenia, will attend, made up of 64 teams. About 1,152 players will be descending on the ice pads of the area, helped along by a needed 100 volunteers. Cheering them on will be an estimated 2,160 supporters.

Interest is growing in the competition, which is still many months away. Already, there have been more than 17,000 hits on the 2012worldbroomball.ca web site. The opening ceremonies will be held at the Beckwith Township sports fields outside of Blacks Corners on the Ninth Line on Oct. 29. There will also be a civic reception, and on the Saturday of the competition, a banquet will be held at the same venue for the participants. Representatives from the Japanese venue for the 2014 games will also be on hand to welcome everyone to the Land of the Rising Sun. Dalgity added he wanted to see local school children included in the once-in-a-lifetime sporting activities. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Kids want to see what this is all about and athletes from member countries want to visit local classrooms,â&#x20AC;? said Dalgity. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The school participation in Austria was quite big. They bused in hundreds of kids.â&#x20AC;? Carlton Place Coun. Doug Black commended Dalgity and his committee for their hard work, but noted the improvements slated for the front entranceway of the Carleton Place arena might be coming a bit too late for the championships. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We would like to see some upgrades to our arena lobby and I wish our timing was better,â&#x20AC;? Photo by Derek Dunn said Black. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something I think we need to do.â&#x20AC;? The World Broomball Committee spoke to Arnprior town council at Mondayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s meetBlack added cheekily, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I trust the gold meding. George Brown, left, and John Daigity said all championship games will be at Nick Smith Centre. The Oct. 29 to Nov. 3 international event should bring $3.54 to the val- al game will be played in Carleton Place?â&#x20AC;? (It will be played in Arnprior). Mayor Wendy ley. LeBlanc also welcomed the championships to the area. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Local businesses will prosper from this,â&#x20AC;? with Township one day, Arnprior the next, and â&#x20AC;&#x153;People are really excited,â&#x20AC;? LeBlanc said. said Dalgity, who added teams will be playing Kanata the day after that, and so on. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Not only is this a chance to showcase our Otat different venues at different times.

At this point he had to win his next two matches to finish in third in order to have the possibility of challenging for second place. The ruling in EOSSAA is that if you finish in third and had not wrestled the person who finished in second then you can challenge for the position because only the top two in each weight class head to OFSAA. Andrews went out and wrestled hard and won his next two matches but the last match reinjured his ankle so he decided not to challenge for second. He finished a very strong third. Rebecca Dolan was next up against a girl from Kingston. These two girls had met several times this season and always with the same result of the Kingston wrestler winning. Dolan lost the first round by a point so had to wrestle a second round and

Both wrestlers in this match were strong and in the first round Mayhew and his coach thought he had pinned the wrestler but was

not the case. Mayhew won the first round by points but was unable to win the next rounds and lost the match. He now had some work to do in hopes of finishing in third and being able to challenge.

Calabogie ski racers continue to shine On a beautiful sunny day Feb. 26, the I2 racers competed in their last regular-season race at Vorlage, Que. Battling a steep, icy slalom course, the boys skied hard with admirable results. Jack Alexander (Carp) turned on the heat to earn himself a 4th place ribbon. Sean Swayze (Braeside) was comfortably inside the Top Ten with a seventg place finish, while Tyler Lefebvre (Calabogie) sped to 15th position. Connor Allen (Manotick) was 24th, Carson Lefebvre (Calabogie) 37th,

and Evan Sharma (Kingston) 42nd. Sam Alexander (Carp), Zach Wroe (Burnstown), Wesley Matthews (Calabogie), and Alex Wroe (Burnstown) all laid down one good run but difficulties on the other knocked them out of the standings. Next up are provincials at Blue Mountain in Collingwood for the K1s and K2s in early March. The racers are also gearing up for championship races in each of the divisions, which will cap off the season by mid-March. 0301.R0011298510

With the race season having passed the half-way mark, Calabogie’s racers continue to let their skills on the ski hill shine. The K1 racers skied a Slalom Mix at Edelweiss, Que., on Feb. 19. The boys rocked their division with silver and bronze medals awarded to Sammy and Alex Duff (Pembroke). Travis Reid (Kingston) was just 44 hundredths of a second shy of the Top Ten, finishing 11th. Fynn Guckes (Calabogie) completed both runs to finish a respectable 25th place. The girls pulled off some nice turning to earn solid results. Lauren Campbell-Brunke (Renfrew) carved out 16th place, with Jessica Earle (Greely) finishing 27th, Alexandra Kerr (Kemptville) right behind in 28th, Lauren Ferguson (Carp) in 30th, Jenna Wissing (Kanata) in 34th, and Emma Schreider (Kingston) in 36th. Sophia Tan (Kanata) also raced. The K2 and Junior racers participated in a Super G Speed Camp at Mont St. Marie, Que., Feb. 15-18. Super G is similar to GS, in that racers must navigate around the gates, but the gates are further apart and racers reach greater speeds. The Speed Camp was capped off with the Art Tommy Memorial Race on Feb. 19. In the girls’ division, Ay-

Fun the focus at Special Olympics tournament By Sherry Haaima sherry.haaima@metroland.com

EMC Sports- The smiles of the faces of the athletes was proof enough to organizers that the event was a success. Arnprior Special Olympics hosted a basketball tournament on Saturday, Feb. 18 at Arnprior District High School. The annual event was a huge success, says organizer Renee Stewart. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This was a very exciting basketball tournament. The most important part of the tournament was that the athletes had fun,â&#x20AC;? said Stewart. Twenty-two teams from nine communities were involved in the event. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The finale was fantastic,â&#x20AC;? said Stewart, of the event which was played full-court with all kinds of spectators to cheer on the athletes. The final two teams to face off were from Kingston and Napanee and Kingston were the eventual winners. As always, the noon-hour foul shooting competition was a huge success. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everybody gets involved and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just so much fun,â&#x20AC;? said Stewart.

EMC Sports â&#x20AC;&#x201C; If you have champions in separate divisions in any field, who wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to see them lock horns? Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what professional bass anglers, Renfrewâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Ken Dagenais and Kemptvilleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Jason Kluver, will be doing in early July. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a pretty big deal,â&#x20AC;? said Pakenhamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Trevor Kunopaski. Kunopaski will be one of the event organizers as a professional production crew covers the bass fishing showdown. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They are the best two bass fishermen in Canada. Both have won thousands and thou-

sands of dollars,â&#x20AC;? Kunopaski said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thing is, they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t compete directly against each other. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ken is the Renegade Bass Angler of the Year for 2011 and Jason is the South Eastern Bass Open champion. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve never faced each other,â&#x20AC;? To win one tournament in a year is amazing, but to win three or four is at another level, which both Dagenais and Kluver have, Kunopaski added. He got on the phone with both anglers, and all is confirmed for the contest. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be held in either the first or second week in July, whichever week both Ken and Jason can be there,â&#x20AC;? he said.

A normal Renfrew County winter scares aunt and uncle EMC Lifestyle - It was unusual for Uncle Johnny to chance it out to Northcote from Ottawa before the last ďŹ&#x201A;ake of snow was gone from the ground. But that winter had been mild, and according to Old Herman, who predicted everything from the weather, the end of the world, and what farm would be turned over to the county for taxes owed, it was going to be an early spring. Now, its doubtful Old Herman had any contact with Uncle Johnny in Ottawa. But when we saw him and Aunt Vanetta pull into the yard late in February, our long lane was no longer rutted with snow, and we could see the square of cement that held our old pump. We didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need Old Herman to tell us spring was coming early, although Father insisted we would be in for a few last blasts of snow before we could say winter was over. It was a Sunday. And when we got home from church, there was Uncle Johnny and Aunt Vanetta sitting in our kitchen like they owned the place. Of course, our doors were never locked back then. Aunt Vanetta was a dainty and tiny woman, who passed on her ďŹ&#x201A;air for fashion to her daughter Aunt Lil, and had on a hat over her white hair that was not much more than a

cluster of silk ďŹ&#x201A;owers and ribbons, but certainly was springlike. Uncle Johnny had put another log into the Findlay Oval, and was sitting at the end of the table with a cigar as long as a table knife hanging from his mouth. Mother was thrilled to see them. Everett was sent out to the henhouse so that Mother could add another chicken to the pot already simmering on the back of the stove, and the whole house took on an air of a party, which always happened when Uncle Johnny came from Ottawa. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Got the day off tomorrow, and Van and I thought weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d come out and head back in the morning...not much snow anywhere, so the roads are good,â&#x20AC;? he said. He had the habit of slapping the table like he was killing a bug every time he made a comment, and I saw the salt and pepper shaker rise off the oilcloth when he brought down his hand, as big as a fry pan. Beds had to be shifted to make way for our overnight

guests, and my sister Audrey and I ended up sleeping on the creton couch in the kitchen, foot to foot because it was too narrow to sleep side-by-side. Before he climbed the stairs to go to bed, Uncle Johnny opened the kitchen door wide and took deep breaths and looked out into the star ďŹ lled sky. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Yup, Spring is here,â&#x20AC;? and he slammed the door shut, just about taking it off its hinges. Father could be heard muttering, â&#x20AC;&#x153;donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t count on it.â&#x20AC;? Well, the next morning, when I got off the couch, I looked out the window and there was Uncle Johnnyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s car, looking like a huge blob of whipped cream. Through the night, we had the heaviest snow storm of the entire winter. In fact, Father had to use a shovel to get out the kitchen door to make a path to the cow byre. Well, let me tell you! When Uncle Johnny saw the snow, and his car completely covered, the oaths could be heard in Admaston. Aunt Vanetta tried to calm him down, but it

was no use. But it would take more than three or four feet of snow to keep us away from school. We would leave earlier than usual, plow our way out the lane and down Plauntâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Side Road, and come home at the end of the day as if it was an every day occurrence to wade through waist high snow banks. When we got home, Uncle

Johnny was still sitting at the kitchen table in his underwear shirt, but Aunt Vanetta looked like a china doll, dressed and ready to head for home. All Uncle Johnny cold talk about was the two dollars he was out by missing a dayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s work. Our visitors were ready to take off before we left for school the next morning. As usual Mother had packed

a couple boxes with vegetables from the cellar, jars of pickles and preserves, and two freshly killed and plucked chickens. Aunt Vanetta was grateful, but Uncle Johnny climbed into his car, muttering how anyone could live in such a godforsaken part of the world was more than he could imagine. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Just a normal Renfrew County winter,â&#x20AC;? Father said.

My View From Island View

Retirement Living So I was giving some thought to why it is that some people come to live with us at Island View. I hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really given it much thought until I was asked to speak to an enthusiastic group of great people about the subject a few weeks ago. From my experience there are four main reasons people choose retirement living. They want to be closer to their families. Perhaps their life has taken them far away from the people they love most. They decide they want to see their grandchildren grow up and they want to be a signiďŹ cant part of their lives as well as have the opportunity to assist their own children along the way. Some other folks come for the completely opposite reason. They donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to be a burden on their families. They watch silently as their own children struggle to raise their family. They see their own health declining and decide that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in their best interest to live in a community where they can maintain their independence and still have access to certain types of care that can help them do this. They donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to rely on their own children when they know they are so busy with their own lives. Others choose to come because they simply want some peace of mind about their health and well being. They want to be assured that if a health crisis was to arise, there would be someone available any time of the day to come to their

rescue. In this location, there are so many people living alone in remote areas and they no longer feel as safe as they used to in their own homes. I think the most important reason why people come to the decision to move is because something has happened. They have fallen or had a scare that leads them to feel less secure. Who are some of these people at Island View and what are their stories? We have a beautiful couple that has come for one simple reason; they want their last years together to be ďŹ lled with fun and joy. They donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to worry about chores and maintaining a home. Another couple has come because one of them is in failing health and the other wants the security of knowing someone will always be available in the event of an emergency. One lovely woman wants to ďŹ ercely maintain her independence. For her, that means being able to make the decision to move into a retirement community on her own. She wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hear of her family making that decision for her. Another gentleman knows that one more winter alone in his big home in the country would cause his loneliness to be unbearable.

How do people know when the time is right to make this decision? Some have shared with me that they crave the social interaction with others that is desperately missing in their lives. Others have said the chores of day to day living have just become too much and now they just want to rest and enjoy the later years of their lives. Some are lonely and others just know their quality of life will be so much better in a community with other folks rather than on their own. If you are considering retirement living, try not to leave the decision until a crisis happens. I recommend getting out there and having a look. The personality of each community differs from home to home. Not every retirement home will be a ďŹ t for you. I believe itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a feeling that you will have in your gut that will tell you when you have made the right choice.

FOOD

This version of gingerbread will surprise and delight EMC Lifestyle - When you hear someone mention gingerbread, you probably think of gingerbread cookies or cake, maybe served with a cup of hot coffee. That thought will change once you’ve tried this week’s recipe. The gingerbread is a pancake that tastes very much like gingerbread cake, and coffee is one of the ingredients that goes into it. This is the kind of dish that you can serve for breakfast, brunch, lunch, or even as dessert after a meal. The pancakes can be served with any one of a variety of toppings. Maple syrup, sliced bananas, ice cream, frozen vanilla yogurt or whipped cream are all good. These pancakes cook best if they are made smaller than the usual pancakes. Although the batter may not look as if there’s not enough of it on the griddle, it will spread and rise as it cooks. Because the pancakes are small, they cook more quickly than the traditional ones.

Food ‘n Stuff PAT TREW

Gingerbread Pancakes 2 cups flour 1 tsp. cinnamon 1 tsp. ginger 1 tsp. nutmeg 3/4 tsp. baking powder 3/4 tsp. baking soda 1/4 tsp. salt 2 eggs, lightly beaten with a fork 1 1/3 cups buttermilk 1/3 cup molasses 1/3 cup cold or warm coffee 3 tbsp. vegetable oil In a large mixing bowl, combine the dry ingredients and spices. In another bowl, stir the remaining ingredients together. Pour the liquid ingredients into the first bowl, and stir. Don’t mix vigorously. The batter will be a bit lumpy, but the lumps disappear during

cooking. Bring a lightly greased or non-stick frying pan or a griddle to medium heat. Measure 1/3 cup of batter for each pancake. As soon as you pour the batter on to the griddle, spread it into a circle about 4” across. Cook, on medium heat, until the bubbles that form on the surface of the pancakes start to break, and the pancake edges look slightly dry. This may take just 2-3 minutes. Flip the pancakes over, and cook the second side for about the same time. To keep the first batch warm while you cook the rest, transfer the cooked pancakes to a large pie plate, and cover them loosely with aluminum foil. Set this in a 300F oven. Makes 12-16 pancakes

The Family of Tommy Sullivan We would like to take this opportunity to express our sincere and heartfelt thanks to our friends, family and colleagues who have been such a tremendous strength and support to us as we mourn the loss of an irreplaceable husband, father and grandpa. To the thousands of people who have expressed their well wishes and condolences to our family: you have given us great strength during this difďŹ cult time. The stories and memories you have shared with us will forever be treasured. To our friends who have provided us with food, ďŹ&#x201A;owers, and helped chauffeur the grandchildren around during Dadâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s illness: your friendship will be forever valued. We offer a special thank you to the Crescent Gang for your love and support. We would like to commend our sincere appreciation to the most professional, skilled, kind and devoted team of care providers and support staff at the Arnprior and District Memorial Hospital. The hospital was Tomâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pride and joy and the care you provided made him proud and thankful. The love and care you demonstrated as you kept vigil over him during each hospital stay provided us with trust and conďŹ dence. Tom appreciated your sense of humour and witty responses to his off-the-cuff remarks that he bounced off you often just to see the reaction he could get (and you always had one)! To Dr. Cathy Greenough, Tomâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;specialâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; daughter and caring doctor: endless thanks for the home visits and for working diligently to do absolutely everything you could to keep Tom in the best possible health. To the staff of Tomâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s beloved M Sullivan and Son and RONA: your friendship, support and dedication to Tom will never be forgotten. You really are members of Tomâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s extended family. Continue to make him proud. Father Robert Ryan and members of the CWL of Our Lady of Perpetual Help and St. John Chrysostom Parishes: thank you for your endless and fervent prayers and for providing our friends and family with reception after the funeral. To Father Roy Boucher, our family member and friend: your visits to Tom and devotion to prayer with him was a tremendous support and healing in his great time of need. Tom left us all with a great legacy and big shoes to ďŹ ll. He would be so thankful to each and every one who has provided his treasured family with the love and support you have shown us.

In loving memory of a dear husband, father, and grandfather who passed away March 4, 2010. God looked upon his garden and found an empty space, Then He looked down upon the earth and saw your tired face. He put His arms around you and lifted you to rest. Godâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s garden must be beautiful for He only takes the best. He saw the road was getting rough and the hills were hard to climb, He closed your weary eyes and whispered â&#x20AC;&#x153;peace be thineâ&#x20AC;?. It broke our hearts to lose you but you did not go alone, For part of us went with you to Godâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s garden, your new home. Sadly missed and forever remembered, Betty, Leah, Nathan, Alexia and Lina

Dear Grandma, It feels just like several days ago, We had you here with us, But instead it has been two long years, And weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve yet to still adjust. Sometimes we stop and cry for awhile, But then your memories dry the tears. We had so many good times together, Rarely sadness, rarely any fears. We miss your warm smile, Your laugh and that gentle voice. One more day would be enough, If only we had the choice. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be so very proud of us all, Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve each come so far. We know that youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re still with us though, Our Angel, our beautiful Star.

Happy 70th Birthday Earl March 2

Melissa GrifďŹ n and Spiros Karadakis Carey and Debbie GrifďŹ n are thrilled to announce the marriage of their daughter Melissa GrifďŹ n to Spiros Karadakis, son of John and Maria Karadakis of Arnprior. Family and friends joined to celebrate the special day with Melissa and Spiros on August 27, 2011. The wedding was held at the Virgin Mary Greek Orthodox Church in Ottawa, ofďŹ ciated by Fr. Alex Michalopulos, and the reception followed at the Hellenic Banquet Centre. Melissa and Spiros were joined by special family members and friends for support on their big day. The wedding party consisted of Melissaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sister, Kaylin GrifďŹ n (Maid of Honour), and friends Sarah Newton, Amanda Saunders and Emily Sloan as bridesmaids. Special family member of Spiros, Constance Moutsos was the ďŹ&#x201A;ower girl and Nicolas Vranas was the ring bearer (Spiroâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s godson). Along side Spiros was Koumbaros (Best man), Mike Michakis, Spirosâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Godfather and also accompanied by Spirosâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; brothers Chris and Kosta Karadakis and friend, Perry Legakis of Ottawa as a groomsman. Melissa and Spiros decided to retreat to Greece for a well deserved honeymoon where they were able to celebrate their marriage with friends and family from Greece who were unable to attend their wedding. Melissa and Spiros also travelled the Greek Islands. They explored Athens, Crete, and Santorini. They newlywedâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s now reside in Stittsville, ON. 32 Arnprior Chronicle-Guide EMC - Thursday, March 1, 2012

Villa resident writes book on Christianity EMC Lifestyle - Arnprior Villa hosted George Richardsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s book launch on Wednesday, Feb. 22. Everyone was welcome to take in audio/visual presentations and refreshments and meet Eunice and members of the Richardson family. In â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;What is Christianity?â&#x20AC;&#x2122;, Rev. Dr. George Richardson observes that the essence of Christianity is mystery. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Christianity points to the mystery one thinks of as â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; coming into relationship with the mystery behind all life, as seen in the spirit of Jesus. And it is a â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;dynamic mysteryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;,â&#x20AC;? says Richardson.

served rural charges for six years before being called to St. Paulâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s United Church in Perth, from which he retired 22 years later. Returning to his beloved farmstead in early retirement, he moved back to Perth until November 2010, when he gave up his home and moved into the Arnprior Villa. While serving a diverse congregation of about 700 families in Perth, he was also active at regional and national levels as chairman of Presbytery and president of Conference, as well as representative on the general council executive for ďŹ ve years. In 1986, his outstanding leadership was recognized when he was one of those nominated for moderator of the United Church of Canada. Among other national committees, Richardson participated in the Christian Faith group that produced a statement of faith in lay language, called A New Creed, which has also been used by other denominations. His remarkable book - begun only three years ago at the age of 85 - is being called a treasure-trove, drawn from a lifetime of inquiry and experience. As you might expect of one born into farming â&#x20AC;&#x201C; along with perhaps his lesser known skills as a craftsman in woodworking - it is per-

FRESH THINKING

His book calls for â&#x20AC;&#x153;some fresh thinking about religion.â&#x20AC;? It is not Christianity - but the way it is packaged - which is dated, he maintains. Until he was 29, Richardson was a farmer on the lands where he was born near Burnstown. Called to the ministry after farming for 15 years, he completed four years of high school in one, earned top marks and won a scholarship to Queenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s University, where he completed undergraduate and masterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s studies. Becoming ordained in 1960, he

What is Christianity? is a new book Rev. Dr. George Richardson. Arnprior Villa hosted the bookâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s launch on Feb. 22.

lenged so much of conventional theology; how basic honesty and a logical approach to theology provided the basis for understanding and critiquing a multitude of human theories that reďŹ&#x201A;ect the various cultural milieuâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s from which they sprang. For Richardson, this is the stuff of his personal journey, what he calls â&#x20AC;&#x153;living with God for God.â&#x20AC;? With its sweepingly big title in such a short space, the author takes the reader on a whirlwind tour of all the essentials. Above all, this book illuminates the Unfathomable Mystery â&#x20AC;&#x201C; â&#x20AC;&#x153;not limited to what can be seen, measured or localized.â&#x20AC;? Akin in some small way to the mystery that is in â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; And as revealed through the spirit of Jesus, the mystery that calls our soul to develop in each of its seven dimensions: sustenance, relationships, knowing, responsibility, vision, morality, and love. Thus may each person fulďŹ ll their unique potential and approach wholeness. So this is a timely book to engage your own thoughts about God, love and relationships. All of which are infused with mystery which, as Richardson says, throughout life is what really matters.
