COMMUNITY

News – The Town of Arnprior’s longtime representative at county council, Reeve Walter Stack, is asking for another four years in the job. Stack signed his papers to be a candidate in the Oct. 27 municipal election on May 16. He has been on town council since 2005, representing the concerns and opportunity of residents around the Renfrew County council table since 2006. Often noted for his “Irish temper,” Stack is considered one of the more outspoken, knowledgeable and passionate members of town council. His compassion is often expressed in the various service organizations he belongs to, especially Royal Canadian Legion branch 174. He tends to be right-ofcentre, a small ‘l’ liberal or red Rory, concerned about

keeping taxes low, but a believer that government can make wise investments and should be responsible for the less fortunate. There was talk last time around that Stack would challenge Terry Gibeau for the mayor’s chair, but the latter opted to run for councillor position. Stack appeared satisfied with the prospect of David Reid winning the mayor’s job, and seems much happier serving on council this time around. He has made it clear since the beginning of the year he would be running again for council, but didn’t say for what position until filing in mid-May. As part of county council, Stack is a member of the influential finance and administration committee, and chairs the operations committee. See STACK Page 3

Clara’s Big Ride comes to ‘prior Stack has lifelong local connections john.carter@metroland.com

News – The appearance by Olympian Clara Hughes in Arnprior is just over three weeks away. Arnprior Reeve Walter Stack updated Renfrew County council and the public on the arrival of Clara’s Big Ride, a part of the Bell Let’s Talk campaign, to the area at the end of the month. She is bringing her cross-country trek to raise awareness about mental health to the Upper Ottawa Valley before wrapping it up in Ottawa on Canada Day. The ride to end the stigma surrounding mental illness will be making stops in Deep River on June 29 and Arnprior on June 30. The six-time Olympic medallist (both summer and winter) began her epic 12,000-kilometre journey on March 14. The 41-year-old Hughes will have visited 95 communities by the time her 110-day trip is over. At County council, Stack praised Hughes for undertaking the ride of her life and encouraged all residents of Deep River and Arnprior and area to come out and give the her the welcome she deserves. He noted that throughout her athletic career, Hughes has battled depression, adding that she bravely has chosen to share her story in the hope the public will see that mental health problems can be overcome with understanding. The bike trip, which has taken Hughes through each province and territory, has her in the Prairies this week. In Deep River, KidActive, the Physical Activity Network and Healthy Communities Partnership are planning the community-wide event for the day of the Olympian’s visit. In Arnprior, parks and recreation director Glenn Arthur and a committee are organizing events to welcome Hughes to town the day before Canada Day. The town is hoping she will take part in the traditional ride down to Robert Simpson Park on Canada Day morning before she heads off to Canada Day celebrations on Parliament Hill.

CLARA HUGHES

“I can’t wait to ride into Ottawa to celebrate Canada’s birthday and share the story of this amazing journey I’ve taken with Canadians everywhere,” said Hughes in a news release Tuesday. “I’ve met so many new people and a lot of old friends during the Big Ride, like the people here in Alberta who’ve been so welcoming and open with their mental health stories. “We’re having a great conversation about how we can achieve a Canada that’s free of the stigma around mental illness. And I hope to see you in Ottawa on July 1 to keep the conversation going as we celebrate Canada Day.” Hughes will be welcomed by Shelly Glover, Minister of Canadian Heritage and Official Languages and the honorary Clara’s Big Ride Community Champion for Ottawa, during the Canada Day celebrations on Parliament Hill. There will be special festivities at ‘Clara’s Celebration Plaza’ in Major’s Hill Park. Hughes will be displaying a number of gifts, artifacts and mementos from around the country that have been given to her during her Big Ride. There will also be entertainment on the Bell Stage. “We are so proud of Clara and her unwavering commitment to mental health and to creating a stigma-free Canada,” said Mary Deacon, Chair of Bell Let’s Talk. “We thank all our partners in communities across Canada for their support and look forward to celebrating the success of Clara’s incredible journey on Canada Day.” Everyone can participate in the Clara’s Big Ride through community events and social media.

WALTER STACK

Prior to being elected, Stack spent a number of years working in Pembroke and also worked in Toronto managing a manufacturing plant.

RNP candidates keep it cordial at Cobden meeting Lucy Hass lucy.hass@metroland.com

News - Hydro rates. Highway 17 four-laning. Public service salaries. Health care. School tuition. Municipal funding. Child poverty. Mental health. Support for agriculture and the forestry sector. These issues and more were touched upon May 27 in Cobden as about 70 people got a first look at the candidates in Renfrew-NipissingPembroke for the June 12 provincial election. Sponsored by the Renfrew County chapter of the Ontario Federation of Agriculture and held at the Cobden Agricultural Hall, the session gave special focus to agricultural issues, including hydro rates, the future of Kemptville College and the possible expansion of natural gas services into rural regions. Only four of six candidates attended – incumbent Conservative MPP John Yakabuski, Liberal Rob Boileau, New Democratic Party candidate Brian Dougherty and Murray Reid of the Confederation of Regions party. Green Party candidate Benjamin Wright and independent Chad Beckwith-Smith were no-shows. Energy rates were the first and top issue addressed, so much so that organizers strayed from their one-minute response restriction as the audi-

They want to be Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke MPP: From left are Liberal Rod Boileau, NDP’s Brian Dougherty, PC John Yakabuski and Confederation of Regions Murray Reid, Not attending the all-candidates forum in Cobden were the Green’s Benjamin Wright and Independent Chad Beckwith-Smith. ence and candidates felt the issue demanded more time. Instead, two minutes were allowed. Former PC energy critic Yakabuski, of Barry’s Bay, said he predicted the Green Energy Act would be a disaster and told the audience that, because of the act, “you’re all going to feel the pain.” He said his party shut down the Ontario Power Authority, work to increase the province’s ability to trade with Manitoba and Quebec, and demand greater accountability. Dougherty said the NDP plans to lower hydro rates overall, stop selling Ontario electricity for pennies on the dollar, and merge, into one body, the four giant hydro corporations

created by the Conservatives when they were in power. Boileau said the Liberals have a 10-year energy plan that includes getting rid of coal-fired plants and pursuing green energies such as wind and solar. Yakabuski said he was running on his record and was clear in his conviction that a change of party is needed for Ontario – and his riding – to move forward. “Here in Ontario, we’re at a crossroads,” said Yakabuski. He said a strong economy depends, in part, on tackling the province’s large debt and creating jobs. He also called for a reduction in “burdensome red tape” and attacked

the much-maligned Endangered Species Act. “If you want out, to be turned around, you’ll have to take a whole new wheel,” he told the crowd. Steering that wheel would be PC leader Tim Hudak. But Liberal Boileau, a resident of McNab-Braeside, warned that Hudak’s plan to cut public jobs across the province would mean the loss of a thousand jobs in Renfrew County. A software manager by profession, Boileau said he is seeking office because he believes in the spring budget presented by Liberal Premier Kathleen Wynne. He especially noted the Liberal commitment to infrastructure, like

the current major dialysis expansion at Renfrew Victoria Hospital. “There is an opportunity in our riding for growth,” said Boileau. But he sees potential beyond the urban centres. He also identified tourism potential. “I think we can increase the number of agricultural jobs in this riding,” he said. On the question of Highway 17 four-laning, Yakabuski said progress has been made, but expansion will be slow, a point agreed upon by all. The NDP, however, has made a commitment to four-laning of Hwy. 17 from where it enters Ontario to where it exits. Boileau recalled when Highway 17 was only two lanes from Stittsville to Arnprior, and the horrible accidents of the past. He said he definitely wants to see more four-laning. “It would be top of my list to fight for,” the Liberal candidate said. “Meanwhile we need to add more passing lanes and find ways to better protect and help people to travel safely.” COR candidate Reid bucked the trend. “I don’t believe that 417 should be four-laned,” he said, suggesting the province and municipalities cannot afford the costs associated with such expansion.

Township making strides in providing recreation: mayoralty candidate John Carter John.carter@metroland.com

News – McNab-Braeside is turning the corner towards investment in affordable recreation opportunities for the entire township, Mary Campbell maintained in a statement announcing that she is running again for mayor in the Oct. 27 election. Campbell officially became a candidate May 27, joining Aldene Styles and Tom Peckett in the race to lead council for the next four year. In her nomination announcement, Campbell

pointed out that since 2009 the Province has been demanding municipalities increase their spending on recreation, part of Healthy Communities initiative. Thanks to the recreation committee, the township is responding positively to the directive, she said. “It is hard to get past individual needs or the needs of ‘my; family and start down the road of providing those same opportunities to the broader community,� Campbell added. “It is a testament to the strength of character of the men and women serving on the recreation

committee that they have been able to make that shift in their thinking. “I would also like to thank those community members who are offering to invest in facilities through which we can offer affordable Sport4Life opportunities. You have no idea how much community input does to move council forward on issues. “Thank you. McNab-Braeside needs to change, we are not a backwater, we are an independent, rural municipality. We need to step up to all that being a municipality entails,� she said. “At the same time, we need to be continually conscious of the financial impact on families and the more vulnerable in our municipality looking for financial solutions beyond the tax base.� Campbell maintained that the township’s advisory committees are so important because the best people to make decisions do not all sit on council. “We must work with the best and brightest through out our community. I have been very proud of the vision of our economic development committee, we have to revive it.� She pointed out that the committee understood the need to balance residential development with commercial along the Hwy. 17 corridor. The work done Dr. Bruce Firestone and Susan Anglin provided with solid ideas on how to fund development outside of the tax base, she noted. “We need to pursue those and not shy away from projects.� Some of the projects will provide housing, she said. “We need to direct a portion of housing toward meeting retirement needs.

We need to solve our housing issues so that our residents are not forced to leave McNab-Braeside.� In running for mayor, Campbell is asking two things of the residents of McNab-Braeside. “While you are busy pursuing those very worthy goals for yourself and your family, please continue to look over your shoulder at who might be getting left behind. How can we broaden the scope of that goal to foster greater participation among more residents? “Secondly, please don’t stop caring for one another, because if you do, I am at a loss what to do with you or for you.�

Live within our means: Confederation candidate Continued from Page 4

It was a theme throughout Reid’s presentation as he spoke out against spiraling public salaries, stressed the importance of living within one’s means and raised what he called the “scandalous� e-health issue. Reid said Ontarians wanted their government to clean up Ontario Hydro and instead it was split into four sections and how “it’s going to be an awfully hard job to rein it in.� Reid praised his home municipality of Admaston-Bromley for maintaining a low tax rate compared to other Renfrew County municipalities and controlling municipal wages. “I think we lead by example,� said Reid. Arnprior resident Dougherty said the NDP is

all about making life more affordable for everyone. He presented his party’s platform of lower hydro bills, a 15 per cent cut in auto insurance and reduced hospital wait times. On the issue of child poverty, Boileau said the Liberals have a leadership plan to continue caring for children and families through more doctors, beds and infrastructure like the new dialysis expansion at Renfrew Victoria Hospital. “The best way out of it is to have as many people as possible working,� Yakabuski said. Dougherty agreed, but said it is not just about jobs, it is about good-paying jobs. He noted how the average Renfrew County wage is among the lowest in the province and how a once-thriving manufacturing sector has been diminished.

Regional Health receives ‘highest’ accreditation care and services. “Achieving the highest level of certiďŹ cation requires a team effort by the more than 300 staff, physicians, and volunteers who work at Arnprior Regional Health,â€? said ARH CEO Eric Hanna. “The award is acknowledgement that ARH is keeping pace with the rapidly changing healthcare environment and conďŹ rms our commitment to quality improvement to deliver safe patient care.â€? In comparison to the previous accreditation completed in 2010 where Arnprior Regional Health was surveyed against 1,172 standards, this year’s survey included 1,519 standards. The increase is attributed to the ongoing reďŹ nement of the survey process adopted by Accreditation Canada. In their report, the surveyors highlighted ARH’s many strengths and praised programs, staff, services and culture. ARH was also recognized for three new leading practices. Accreditation Canada deďŹ nes a leading practice as a noteworthy practice carried out by a health service organization that demonstrates innovation and creativity, and has a positive impact on services or outcomes for clients and families. The three speciďŹ c practices for ARH included falls prevention, physician score card

and the integrated COPD program. The surveyors went on to note: “ARH is a highly functioning organization that has worked hard during the past three years to implement positive change, address service gaps, and improve the services it offers. The organization has made progress by focusing on its values and vision, and adhering to its strategic plan and goals. “Arnprior Regional Health recognizes that if progress is to be made then staff engagement is key to further progress. Toward that end, the organization has done a superior job in engaging staff and demonstrating by example what it means to be leaders in health care.� “Congratulations to the staff and leadership at Arnprior Regional Health for their commitment to quality and safety, which was evident throughout all aspects of the accreditation experience,� said Wendy Nicklin, president of Accreditation Canada. “Organizations that achieve exemplary standing, the highest level of achievement, are a model for quality improvement.� “The board of directors is most proud of this achievement,� noted ARH board chair Jay Johnston. “The dedicated and committed team at Arnprior Regional Health is to be commended.�

News - Arnprior Regional Health (ARH) announced last week it has received the highest level of award from Accreditation Canada. The ‘Accreditation with Exemplary Standing’ rating delighted ARH ofďŹ cials, who explained that to achieve the level of performance the organization exceeded the most rigorous requirements of the program. Accreditation Canada is a not-for-proďŹ t organization that has been improving health quality through rating health care facility performance since 1958. The organization accredits more than 1,200 organizations representing 5,700 sites and services across Canada. The in-depth review process assessed standards across all services at Arnprior Regional Health (hospital, nursing home, assisted living and adult day program). These standards examined all aspects of health care including patient safety, governance and leadership, ethics, staff education, emergency preparedness, and partnerships with the community. In total 1,519 standards were assessed and ARH was in compliance with 98.4 per cent. ARH ofďŹ cials says the accreditation process validates the impact of the organization’s ongoing efforts to improve the outcomes for patient/resident/client care, as well as improving the experience of those who are in need of

Voting is amazing gift

A

nother provincial election is upon us. Elections are arguably one of the most exciting times for a newspaper. There are candidates to profile and meetings to attend, all with the goal of providing the public with the information to make a more informed decision on Thursday, June 12. The right to vote is one that we should all take very, seriously. It’s our way to make change happen and try to make a difference. However, participation has steadily .been on the decline since 1990. According to Elections Ontario, voter turnout in the last provincial election in 2011 stood at just 48.2 per cent, compared to 52.1 per cent in 2007. Back in 1995, 63 per cent of eligible voters cast their ballots. Why the falling lack of

interest? Is it the aging population who doesn’t believe their vote matters? Or perhaps the younger generation, who has just earned the right to vote, isn’t engaged enough with provincial politics. If it’s the latter, the problem will surely get worse and voter turnout will continue to decline. With the Internet and social media, information is more readily available than ever before. So there’s no excuse for young people to be complacent about politics, whether it be federal, provincial or municipal. Those who choose not to vote shouldn’t be able to complain about the outcome afterwards either. We are all given an amazing gift in our ability to vote.

Cutting trees has This area should follow Huntsville’s lead: progresssion not regresssion degraded trail LETTERS

To the Editor: I saw the other week (Chronicle-Guide, May 1) the list a previous council member put in outlining all of the advances, changes and improvements that the council had made for Arnprior, and surely, admittedly so, with the list of things done, a truly substantial amount has been done and certainly for the greater better. But as well, I do hope that the council also needs to see that making money is also needed for the town, so we can keep up with the expenditures and make even further strides. Arnprior and McNab have a great advantage being right on the river, and city slickers, cottagers will flock towards it, but the commercial and business development needs to significantly expand and open up further. Have venues and shops more accessible and available and varied as well. Stop talking about it, and make it happen soon, because the talk isn’t making any changes! The downtown has so many closed stores, the mall is almost abandoned and all with so much potential. I heard that a new town square was thinking of being constructed, such as that similar to Wal-Mart and the stores surrounding in Renfrew, but it was allegedly planned for over by the Antrim (truck stop). Not everyone has a car, so not only will available jobs be difficult to

access for the present vast unemployed in Arnprior, but difficult to access for shoppers who like to walk and browse from the street and like to easily reach places and just stumble upon stores. They don’t necessarily like or want to have to seek or hike them out. Daniel Street has so much potential to be a second main street for downtown, similar to Perth, not to mention Madawaska and all the property there that will surely accommodate the techno park stores built today. It would also be available for the newly developed neighbourhoods down that way and the elderly. I heard Arnprior used to be so charming and wonderful to walk through and shop and visit, but so many building and shops are closed and abandoned and the feedback from the residents and visitors alike is discouraging and frustrating for them, as the charm is fading, and very quickly unfortunately. Coming from a small town that struggled at the start in the ‘70s and ‘80s, Huntsville Ontario, in Muskoka, I saw first-hand the changes made and the impacts that benefited there. Resorts were built, Toronto residents came, started making it their cottage country. These resorts expanded and other developed attractions, monuments, parks and recreational sites started to rise up. The council there reworked the aesthetics and

prettied things up, and now, it’s a town that’s on the map thanks to the G8. A university division was created, a mall was built, a techno park exists, albeit not in the most convenient place I must protest, but residents from the city have made it a second home for themselves. Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell have a home there. The list goes on. Arnprior and McNab have the Ottawa River and there is property with lots of potential available there for resorts and outdoor recreation that would attract city residents, and relatively close compared to other towns with water access in the Valley. What a gem! The bottom line, anyhow, is that now Huntsville is a booming town, progressing and developing fearlessly and making better for itself and the community. I would love, and dare, the council of Arnprior to try and make the same strides. Again, stop talking about it, and do it! Do it though so that everyone can take advantage of it, and they will all grow along with the town, meaning the unemployed will get employed and develop as well. Get the town to start making some money. Currently Hunstville’s economy is practically self-sustaining. Arnprior can do the same.

To the Editor: Amongst Arnprior’s trove of wonderful natural features, there is perhaps a little known walking trail that runs along the Madawaska River from behind the Nick Smith Centre to Highway 417. It crosses a creek or two and has nice cedar woods and prominent rock formations. This trail is owned by the Town. Recently we have noticed that a couple of residents at the end of Charles Street have basically clear-cut (while leaving several picturesque trees) their properties and town property, right to the river’s edge. This has largely degraded those areas of the trail. It has also left things vulnerable to erosion since the areas cut are quite long, steep slopes going down to the river. Moreso, it looks like they may have ventured across their property line, across the path onto town property to cut down mature trees. While they have surely made nice views for themselves, they have done nature a disservice, as well as disregarded town folks who might enjoy a walk through this section of woods.

Our staff often deal with the harsher side of reality when there is abuse or neglect involved. Animals are nursed back from physical and/or psychological abuse by a host of dedicated volunteers, foster homes and behavioral experts, to again give them their right to that ‘forever’ home. Part of the Humane Society’s mandate is to teach humane education in the schools, to teach responsible pet ownership. It is a privilege not a right, to have a companion animal, a stand we take very seriously. Part of that responsible pet ownership is keeping the pet safe, happy and healthy. All our animals are spayed or neutered before adoption. There are far too many animals that come to us that are not spayed or neutered, and this is a major problem resulting in animal overpopulation. We strongly believe that if you are adopting a cat or dog from our shelter, you should be doing so to give this animal a better life and, therefore, want only what is best for it. We sometimes refuse an application for adoption because of where the animal will live or spend most of its time. We do this because of the time and effort that has been expended on the animal’s care and because of our dedication to giving the animal its best chance at a loving and safe home. If a kitten or cat has never been outside, or has become accustomed to being an ‘indoor only’ cat, it is often terrified upon suddenly be-

ing put outside, and it simply does not have the same outdoor survival skills that a cat raised outdoors may have. While some people are fortunate enough to have their outdoor cats live long and healthy lives, statistics indicate the average lifespan of outdoor cats to be less than half that of indoor cats. Outdoor cats are more prone to accidents with moving vehicles, attacks by other animals and contracting diseases, to name only a few of the dangers they face. The shelter has cats that have come to us that have been outside and are mostly savvy to the outside world. These cats would be a better choice for someone interested in having a cat that can go outside, but too often people want a cat that is not suitable for the lifestyle they want to offer a pet. Allowing a dog to be adopted into a situation where it will be tied up to a dog house or left constantly outside defeats our purpose of providing it with love and human companionship, and sometimes would put it back into the same negative circumstances it initially came to us from. It is good to remember that the animals that come to us are looking for a second chance at a good and loving home, and, as the word ‘humane’ suggests, it is up to us that they get that.

Township council missing the big picture

C. CARDINAL/SUBMITTED

Garbage between Red Pine Bay and the cemetery prompted a reader to take this photo submitted with a letter that ran in the Chronicle-Guide May 22.

Let’s get together June 14 and clean up the litter along Usborne Street To the Editor: RE: Garbage along route to Red Pine Bay disgusting (Chronicle-Guide, May 22). After seeing this letter and photo in the Chronicle, I couldn’t help but wonder what could be done to improve the situation. As a third year environment and business student at the University of Waterloo, I felt compelled to respond. Furthermore, a few months ago, I began a website dedicated to telling the story of sustainability, SustainED. In

my mind, it’s one thing to run a website that people may or may not read - but getting out in the community, making a difference and really showing the impact of our actions is the most important thing to promote sustainability. On Saturday, June 14 at 10 a.m., any and all are welcome to help SustainED and myself clean up a portion of Usborne Street and keep our community beautiful. I’ve created a Facebook event to reach out to the com-

munity, which you can find here. After all, as the Greek proverb says: “A society grows great when old men plant trees whose shade they know they shall never sit in.� Let’s clean up Usborne Street and ensure that our children and future generations can experience the same beauty as ourselves. Phil Murphy Honours Environment and Business Waterloo

To the Editor: The long overdue budget for McNab-Braeside was finally passed recently, almost halfway into the year. Given this council’s track record of imposing their own personal views, it is no surprise that it includes an increase in taxes combined with a serious drop in services, which is a hidden tax increase. No longer are McNab-Braeside residents afforded the same rates as Arnprior and Renfrew residents for recreation and library services. Most services offered by government are not used by the majority. A council that truly has the long-term interests of its residents foremost in mind understands that. The current McNab-Braeside council does not. Over 2,200 people signed a petition to carry on with shared library and recreation services with neighbouring towns for one more year and this was wiped out in this budget. Deputy Mayor Blimkie says that ‘we got everything we wanted’. When she says ‘we’, that doesn’t mean the public.

Active families and seniors have been hung out to dry as they now pay out-of-town rates for swimming and ice pad activities. We can’t make up for with archery and paddling programs, and a batting cage. This will have reverberations in housing values in this township as active families and seniors will now be reluctant to move here and others are considering leaving. But development to our potential has not been a priority of this council, as there has only been 15 housing starts in the last year. Developers who are looking for assistance are referred to the County. McNab-Braeside staff were too busy handling a confusing survey that didn’t even include the option that most residents wanted – a continuation of the shared agreements. Now staff are tied up processing token $45 library card rebates, which is a poor substitute for contributing a fair lump sum payment to the Arnprior and Renfrew libraries so that they can plan properly to serve the greater community. The numbers quoted by

Mayor Campbell don’t add up. Saying that an agreement with Arnprior will lead to amalgamation is fear-mongering. We have had shared agreements for many years. If she has found the last three years exhausting on this issue, it is because she has insisted on imposing her own personal views over that of her electorate. That takes a lot of work. There is a municipal election this October. I hope that many residents of McNabBraeside can engage in an open and frank discussion on how to build on our strengths in this Township. We need a new plan for a positive way forward that is respectful of the wishes of the majority, mindful of the needs of those on a fixed income, and welcomes new neighbours with open arms while retaining our unique identity as a rural community.

Lower hydro rates with NDP and Dougherty Sherry Haaima sherry.haaima@metroland.com

News – Rising hydro rates, a higher minimum wage and more and better jobs are among the top concerns of Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke voters, says the riding’s NDP candidate Brian Dougherty. The licensed electrician and plumbing apprentice has

lived in Arnprior for six years. Originally from Mississauga, he and wife Kimberly have two young daughters – Samantha and Sydney. And while there is no physical NDP office in the riding, Dougherty is eager to hear from the public through what campaign manager Felicite Stairs has dubbed the ‘virtual office’, which includes

four phones, two websites and Facebook and Twitter accounts. Website addresses include Renfrewndp.ca and Briandougherty.ca. Dougherty’s inspiration has come from a variety of sources over the years. From his boss during college who led him into the social work field to long-time Northern Ontario NDP MPP Gilles Bisson, who

They need to make more money. The NDP have said they are going to raise it to $12 per hour and then tie it to inflation.� The Liberals have only pledged to raise it to $11/hour and the Conservatives have made no promises at all with respect to wages, he noted. Jobs are another major issue facing voters. “We need good-paying jobs,� said Dougherty. “These million jobs Hudak is talking about are part-time minimum-wage jobs. “People need to raise their families, go on vacations, put food on the table and not have to worry as much as they are now.�

Infrastructure, jobs are priorities: Boileau sherry.haaima@metroland.com

News – More jobs and reliable infrastructure are needed in the riding, says Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke Liberal candidate Rod Boileau. And, if elected, he promises to be aware of all the facts before making any rash decisions. Boileau and his wife Whitney have two teenage sons, Alex and Noah and a one-year-old daughter, Isabelle. He has worked in the high tech sector for more than 20 years and has spent more than 12 years in management, human resources and project leadership. The native of Cornwall works in Kanata and came to the Arnprior area in 1994 to be close to his high tech job.

Liberal candidate Rod Boileau of Arnprior. His foray into politics is spurred by his experience as a Liberal party volunteer.

“I’d been volunteering at the Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke federal Liberal executive for over a year. I was interested in learning more about politics and getting involved,” said Boileau. He aims to be the type of person who not only identifies the problem, but comes armed with solutions. “I don’t want to be an armchair politician that throws stones. When I see a problem, I want be actively involved in helping to solve it.” Among the issues most important to local constituents is employment, he said. “We have to attract higher paying jobs so that people don’t have to commute.” ‘WE NEED TO BRING JOBS’

“This is one of the most im-

poverished ridings in Ontario. We need to bring jobs and solidify what we have.” Existing industry, in Arnprior, Chalk River and other areas of the riding, needs to be supported and protected, he said. “It’s a huge part of our population. If we were to lose that it would be devastating,” said Boileau. Another pressing matter is Highway 17. “We need a safe, reliable highway all the way up to Petawawa and beyond,” he said. “We need infrastructure to attract more business and higher paying jobs.” Liberal premier Kathleen Wynne’s pension plan is much needed, especially locally, he said. “Most of our riding needs it – only 35 per cent have work

pensions and can they be assured that will be there when they need it?” said Boileau. “It’s brave leadership to bite that bullet and say, ‘Hey we want to improve that.’” He’s concerned for those who would be affected by the job cuts proposed by PC leader Tim Hudak. “Those are 100,000 high-paying jobs. With the

ecosystem around it, that is huge,” said Boileau. In terms of political inspiration, it’s the likes of Trudeau, Chretien and Mulroney from which he draws. His work mentors have provided support, as well. “I’ve had some really good vice-presidents in high tech companies who have helped mould who I am today,” said Boileau.

Yakabuski pursues a fourth straight term Steve Newman steve.newman@metroland.com

News - John Yakabuski would welcome an early 57th-birthday gift by being elected the Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke MPP for a fourth straight term. Yakabuski was born just four days after John Diefenbaker’s election as Canadian prime minister on June 10, 1957. It was such a proud moment for parents Doreen and Paul Yakabuski that their son was named after the country’s new leader. Yakabuski’s dad went on, after serving about a decade on Barry’s Bay council, to be the Renfrew South MPP from 1963 until his death in 1987.

Yakabuski, who calls his dad his hero and mentor for his commitment and compassion to the job, is also the cousin of Sean Conway who was the Renfrew North or Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke MPP for 28 years. Yakabuski had a tough battle to reach Queen’s Park, when he defeated Liberal Derek Nighbor in 2003 by just over 600 votes. A landslide winner in 2007 and 2010, Yakabuski says it will take more than strong political bloodlines to win again. This time, the 6-foot-3 politician and longtime business owner says he’s running on his own accomplishments, as well as the attributes of leader Tim Hudak and the

But he says work he and his office staff have done to address constituents’ needs on a day-to-day basis is one of the strongest reasons he has been twice re-elected. Yakabuski says Hudak’s message has not always been projected effectively, but he suggests that has changed with the help of strong poliPC candidate John Yaka- cies. buski of Barry’s Bay.

Yakabuski says he also volved itself in a provincial election. The association, which represents front-line OPP officers in the province, has launched two 15-second advertisements slamming Progressive Conservative leader Tim Hudak’s “assault” on their collective agreements. The advertisements’ message boils down to: “We’re here for you. Who’s Tim Hudak here for?” The OPPA says it is not endorsing the Liberals or the NDP and has a good relationship with many PC MPS, but “we just don’t want this Conservative as premier.” The release drew quick response from the OPP, who issued its own statement that “it does not, in any way, support this OPPA campaign.” • 9’ Main Floor Ceiling The OPPA is an independent asso• Coffered Dining Room ciation which does not report to, and is Ceiling not controlled by, the OPP, it stressed.

News - Ben Wright is a resident of Ottawa, but has always called the Valley, and, more specifically, Calabogie and the Madawaska River, home. He recently completed studies in history, languages and politics at the University of Ottawa, and has sights set on teachers’ college. “I am running for the Green Party in Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke because our party has many fantastic, common-sense ideas and I believe it is time people start hearing about them,” Wright said. “Everyone knows that the Green Party stands for the environment, but few know that we stand for all Ontarians with emphasis on fairness, honesty and integrity.” Wright, 26, has voted for many different parties for different reasons and said he often doesn’t know whether to vote for the platform, the candidate or the party specifically. “I will not further preach on environmental concerns,” said Wright, because he said everyone knows where the Green Party stands. “I look to the future. I look to strong local communities that support each other and provide the type of environment where everyone can thrive,” he said. “The Green Party is a friend of small businesses that provides quality employment, experience and service. I find it hard to believe that cutting corporate taxes and

public service will provide the type of meaningful employment and service Ontarians need. We need to invest in infrastructure for employment reasons, for logistic reasons and for common sense reasons,” he added. “We need to invest in the future with emphasis on youth poverty, overall education and youth employment turning our young people into honest, hard-working citizens that will, in turn, give back.” Wright said people need to invest in their homes by making them more efficient, thus saving everyone on bills, increasing the value of homes and stimulating the economy in the process. “The truth is that I am Green, like the name of my party,” Wright said. “I heard of an opportunity with the Green Party through a friend, to get involved, and I figured it was time to give back to a community that has given me so much. If a single Green MPP is elected to Queen’s Park that person would serve as a voice of caution, reason and common sense for all.” Wright said he’d be honoured to be the voice of his home riding of Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke. “I would dedicate myself completely to their service and to their benefit. I find that even the city of Ottawa has a hard time getting the attention of Toronto. “If I was to be elected and the Green were to win the seat, all of Ontario would hear the voice of common sense, reason and honesty from Renfrew Nipissing Pem-

Health key to vote: OMA News - A new public opinion poll confirms almost 9 of 10 Ontarians (87.9 per cent) feel that health care is an important issue to them personally, says a news release Tuesday from the Ontario Medical Association (OMA). Further, more than two thirds of Ontarians (67.6 per cent) say a provincial party with a strong platform on health care would have an impact on whether they will vote or not for a party. “Ontarians value our

publicly-funded health care system. Yet there’s been little meaningful debate in the election about health care and each party’s plans for improving access to care and ensuring the system’s sustainability,” said OMA president Dr. Ved Tandan. “Today’s poll sends a clear message to the leaders that Ontarians need to hear more about health care before they head to the polls and elect a new government,” continued Tandan.

THE BEST QUALITY CRAFTMANSHIP IN CABINETRY

News - “He’s a really standup guy and I really like what he’s doing,” said BeckwithSmith, 61, of John Yakabuski, the Progressive Conservative candidate who’s seeking reelection. But that’s not enough for Beckwith-Smith, who says Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke deserves an independent candidate who can positively respond to the needs of the people. If Yakabuski ran as an independent, the Combermerearea resident says he’d withdraw his own candidacy. But he says politicians represent their political parties and not the people. Beckwith-Smith, who was born in Rochester, N.Y., and moved to Combermere as a teenager, graduated from the same secondary school as Yakabuski, Madawaska Valley District High School in nearby Barry’s Bay. It was a culture shock at first, coming to Renfrew County, but he returned after working away and seeing the world as an air flight attendant. “I love the nature and I never stopped loving it,” he says of the area. Living a few kilometres from Combermere, on a quiet

The second is the establishment of oil revenue dividend cheques for Canadians. “I got to see the entire world, every continent, meeting people and understanding people, and hearing what their politics and culture were,” he explained. Travelling, he says, has given him the chance to view problems in a different light, without trying the same approach for every solution. Meanwhile, he says his prolife stance is not rooted in the

Roman Catholic church. “It comes from me as a man, from my masculinity. I’m more than one religion,” explained Beckwith-Smith. “Some say people say it’s a woman’s body (and for her to choose), but it’s a man’s sperm separate in itself and a female egg separate in itself, then the two become a human life.” He supported the Canadian Alliance Party for its pro-life stance, but says hopes for advancement on that issue died when Alliance amalgamated with the federal Conservative Party. His goal is to stop all legal abortions in the Province of Ontario. His second campaign issue is a call for oil revenue dividend cheques for all Canadians, somewhat like the federal gas tax payments for each Canadian municipality. Beckwith-Smith’s interests include riding horses and motorcycles, enjoying the outdoors, and making a living through freelance photography and the sale of anti-cancer Chaga medicinal mushrooms. His efforts to support social-justice issues include ww.photoreward.com, where he encourages people to post photos of distracted drivers so they can be submitted to the appropriate insurance company.

Confederation of Regions candidate runs for sixth time in this area Peter Clark peter.clark@metroland.com

Confederation of Regions candidate Murray Reid of Admaston-Bromley. says writing, spelling and math skills need to be improved. “There’s no way they (students) should be able to get out of that,� Reid said. “They (teachers) should be teaching the basics.� “I’m adding my voice of discontent with the Liberal Government’s Green Energy Act.� Reid said the cost

Reid is critical of people who pollute water sources willfully with different chemicals, and critical of the Ministry of Environment for condoning it. Specifically, softeners being taken out of septics and discharged into the ground contaminate wells. “Don’t do it,� he stressed. Salt, chlorine, alum and hydrogen peroxide are among pollutants Reid said the MoE should legislate people from putting in ground water. “Nothing goes with salt,� Reid said. The COR party, with libertarian ideals, would also rescind the government-legislated Clean Water Act which attacks rural values, while not prosecuting those who actually pollute, namely towns and cities, Reid added.

The Confederation of Regions (COR) Party representative is one of five candidates running in RenfrewNipissing-Pembroke for the June 12 election. Reid addressed a number of issues involving his campaign. “I’ve talked to many different businessmen, and they’ve experienced that the students coming out of the schools are not versed in writing,� Reid said.

of electricity is depleting businesses and driving them out of Ontario. The hydro cost is also making it tough for homeowners, he added. Another issue is species at risk, which is just bogus data, Reid said. As an example, he said data indicates blandings turtles are endangered. “Now, there are so many blandings turtles, they are road kill.� Reid has picked them up off the highway and taken them to his own pond. Forced bilingualism is another issue, but Reid admits, “It hasn’t been pushed too much here, (not) like it used to.� One reason why Reid is running, and why he did last election also, is to get an important message across.

A Barred Owl’s recent brush with death Michael Runtz Nature’s Way

MICHAEL RUNTZ

This Barred Owl, right, narrowly escaped a Red-tailed Hawk’s attack. Red-tailed Hawks, above, usually capture small mammals and reptiles, not owls.

Lifestyle - Of no surprise, the more time one spends in the wild the more one sees. Every walk produces encounters with new plants and animals, and unforgettable natural history moments unfold before your eyes. The latter might involve an interaction between animal and plants, such as a pollinator

busily working a flower, or an interaction between two animals. Recently it was the latter that I was privy to. The encounter took place along the Achray Road in eastern Algonquin Park. Along that road, which leads to beautiful Grand Lake, lies a majestic section of mature hardwood forest, a rather uncommon habitat in pinedominated eastern Algonquin. Here, American Beech adorned with scarred claw marks of Black Bears (which climbed the trees to harvest beechnuts) are scattered among towering Sugar Maples and Yellow Birches. When birding in eastern Algonquin, I usually stop at this location and look for White-breasted Nuthatches and Downy Woodpeckers. If none are to be seen, I usually give a few Barred Owl calls to entice them to appear. Interestingly, nuthatches and woodpeckers are drawn to those sounds. Of no surprise, three Yellowbellied Sapsuckers, a Downy Woodpecker, and a Hairy Woodpecker soon let their presence be known. To our surprise (I was with my friend Rory MacKay), two Barred Owls answered back. They called and soon flew into view, all the time uttering a cacophony of wild calls that would seem equally appropriate in a jungle setting. Several times during the owl allegro, a Red-tailed Hawk soared overhead. Red-tails are not common in Algonquin for they prefer a mixture of woods and open spaces, not continuous forest as is found through much of the Park. Their smaller cousin, the Broad-winged Hawk, is the most common hawk in that forest. But this section of forest had been logged in recent years, so the perhaps the habitat had been altered sufficiently for the Red-tail to use. Regardless, the hawk appeared only to be having a leisurely fly over the forest. The owls flew across the road where they continued to call. Motion above caught my eye and I looked up to see the Red-tailed Hawk shooting down like a bullet, its wings semiclosed as it entered the canopy. It went straight for one of the Barred Owls, which frantically flew from its perch.The owl made a few desperate aerial manoeuvres with the speeding hawk hot on its tail, talons outstretched. I was sure we were going to be witness to a kill. Both birds quickly disappeared from view, but Rory thought the owl had escaped. The lone owl soon resumed calling. Ten long minutes passed and it was the only owl to be heard. Then from nearby came a response from the other owl! It rejoined its mate and the pair broke into a wild chorus, seeming to celebrate the one’s narrow escape. Red-tailed Hawks primarily eat small- to medium-sized mammals, and reptiles, but sometimes eat birds. However, owls aren’t usually on their menu and although the encounter was a close one, Barred Owls currently remain off it! The Nature Number is 613-3872503; email is mruntz@start.ca.

life for their communities. “The Silver Chain Challenge promotes happier, healthier communities,” said Renfrew County Warden Peter Emon. “It’s a great way for residents of Renfrew County to engage in a friendly competition while making active transportation a part of their regular routine in a safe and easy manner.” “Our goal is to create healthier communities where all children, families and seniors have safe and accessible spaces to walk and bike more,” added Shawna Babcock, chair of the Physical Activity Network for Renfrew

County. “Active communities are important for the health and well-being of our youngest population and for a higher and healthier quality of life as we get older.” The Silver Chain Challenge kicked off with two events. First, the Eastern Ontario Active Transportation Summit was held May 28-29 in Mississippi Mills at the Old Almonte Town Hall. During the Summit, the Warden’s Plate was presented to the Silver Chain 2013 Champion Lanark County. On Sunday, June 1, in White Lake there was an 8-km bike/ walk/run from White Lake to

Burnstown, the second in the Get Here from There series. The County of Renfrew and Lanark County Councils took part in a weight loss challenge in 2011 and 2012, and the first Silver Chain Challenge in 2013. Both councils continue to encourage their residents to make healthy lifestyle choices, and get out and experience Active Transportation in their own communities.

Dealership funds CN trail upgrades News - George Jackson Toyota has donated $5,000 to upgrade and beautify the CN trail in Horton. This six-kilometre segment of the trail runs from the Renfrew line to Yantha Road, at the border of McNab-Braeside. In 2013, the Whitewater Sno-Goers Association successfully applied for a grant to upgrade the sections of the CN trail that are within Horton’s boundaries. “Horton Township is very appreciative of their efforts and is very fortunate to have these members take an interest in upgrading the trail,”

said a Horton council news release. The recent contribution from George Jackson Toyota, which opened its new facility in Horton four years ago, will be used along with the grant money for significant trail upgrades. Horton public works staff will provide labour to help the Whitewater Sno-Goers carry out general trail maintenance. This includes tree removal, brushing back of the trail, installation of gate structures at each road intersection, and minor work on approaches to bridges. There are also township plans to install benches and picnic tables for rest stops.

Arnprior fire department PS3 thief targets promotes fireworks safety Ottawa Street home News – In its continuing efforts to ensure all town residents are ďŹ re safe, the Arnprior ďŹ re department is launching a ‘Summer Safety Campaign ‘ The campaign is designed to remind town residents of essential safety tips to help everyone have a safe and enjoyable summer. This month’s campaign topic is ďŹ reworks safety. To minimize the risk of ďŹ re and burn injury, the OfďŹ ce of the Fire Marshal recommends attending public ďŹ reworks displays hosted by a municipality or other responsible organization. If you still choose to have a family ďŹ reworks or an informal neighbourhood display, check with the municipality about local bylaws regarding the use of ďŹ reworks within the town. Here are some important safety tips to be followed: • Appoint a responsible person to be in charge. Only adults who are aware of the hazards and essential safety precautions should handle and discharge ďŹ reworks. • Carefully read and follow the label directions on

ďŹ reworks packaging. • Always keep a water hose or pail of water close by when discharging ďŹ reworks. • Discharge ďŹ reworks well away from combustible materials like buildings, trees and dry grass. • Keep onlookers a safe distance away, upwind from the area where ďŹ reworks are discharged. • Light only one ďŹ rework at a time and only when they are on the ground. Never try to light a ďŹ rework in your hand or re-light dud ďŹ reworks. For dud ďŹ reworks, it is best to wait 30 minutes and soak them in a bucket of water. Dispose of them in a metal container. • Discharge ďŹ reworks only if wind conditions do not create a safety hazard. • Keep sparklers away from children. Sparklers burn extremely hot and can ignite clothing, cause blindness and result in severe burns. As the sparkler wire remains hot for some minutes after burnout, it should be immediately soaked in water to avoid injury. • If someone gets burned, run cool water over the

wound for three to ďŹ ve minutes and seek medical attention, if necessary. SPARKLER INJURIES

According to Canada Safety Council, in May 1998 the Canadian Hospitals Injury Reporting and Prevention Program (CHIRPP) examined its data base for injuries related to ďŹ reworks or ďŹ recrackers. CHIRPP data comes from 10 children’s hospitals and six general hospitals across Canada. Its data base contained 175 ďŹ re-works-related injuries. Most people are not aware that sparklers are also responsible for a substantial amount of legal ďŹ rework-related injuries each year. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission’s statistics from the Fourth of July festivities in 2003 indicated that sparklers were involved in 57 per cent of ďŹ reworks injuries sustained by children under ďŹ ve years of age. People should be aware of the potential hazard involved with handling sparklers and take precautionary measures so as not to expose their children to undue risk.

News – The OPP reports that a home on Ottawa Street in Arnprior was broken into overnight Saturday, May 24. A door was kicked in and a PS3 game was stolen. There is a suspect and OPP Constable Mark Young is investigating. It was one of 245 calls responded to by the RenfrewArnprior Detachment of the OPP last week. In another incident, a 29-year-old man is facing charges after robbing a convenience store in Renfrew on

News – The Arnprior Mall is having trouble again with people dumping garbage behind the shopping centre. In an attempt to deter dumpers, the mall has installed cameras in the back to watch over the area most popular with offenders.

Fire chief hanging up boots after 45 years Community – In the 1960s Art Brown used to wake up his dad to go follow fire trucks. Later. he rode his bike to the station when he heard the sirens and helped clean up the station. Now 45 years later, Brown is the fire chief for Mississippi Mills and will be retiring on June 27. “When I hear the sirens I still get the adrenaline rush,” said Brown. “It’s going to be hard to break old habits.” Brown wanted to become a firefighter to help people. He says that community service runs in the family as both his brother George and late sister June Dalgity have also been fixtures in the area. “It’s just something I have always enjoyed,” said Brown. “Helping the community is something that runs in my blood. I will definitely miss it. I was here to help and it didn’t matter who it was.” He started with the Almonte department in 1969, after working for Patterson’s in Almonte where he used his vacation to take courses at the Ontario Fire College in Gravenhurst. He was with the department when Almonte joined the Ramsay department in 1998, during the amalgamation, and became chief that year. When asked what he will miss the most, his answered focused on the relationships he has built over the years. “The guys, I’ll miss them the most. It’s like a big family, you get so close,” said Brown. “We’ve all had children and some children are now on the department, it’s the next generation.” Brown says the biggest enjoyment of the job has been teaching children about fire prevention. He remembered one time when after a house fire the children helped the parents get out, he asked the kids how they knew what to do. They said it was his teaching. “That’s rewarding,” he said with a large smile on his face. Another time he responded to a false carbon monoxide alarm, when the father approached him after to chat with his young son because he told the family what to do after hearing one of Brown’s school presentation only two days earlier. “Things like that make you feel good,” said Brown. “We are here to serve the public, I don’t care what role that is, I’m here to serve the public. Lot’s of things we do are not fire related but just serving the public.” He continues to serve in many ways, including a phone call he received three weeks ago on the weekend. “There was a kitten who had been up a tree for three days. I just phoned another guy and we went out. I don’t know how many times I’ve done that, I’ve been scratched too,” he said.

the community and has a few different projects he intends to tackle. “I’m going to do what I want to do, I got to keep busy!” he remarked. The Town of Mississippi Mills was expected to make a decision on a new chief on Tuesday and Brown has some advice for whoever takes over his position. “Be involved in the community,” said Brown. “You have to enjoy your job. I didn’t consider this a job, no one forced me, and I’ve really enjoyed it.” A retirement party for Brown is set for this Saturday, June 7 at 7 p.m. at the Almonte Community Centre at 182 Bridge St. “It will be emotional,” said Brown of the party. “I’ve met a lot of people over the years and the friendships I’ve made, I will never forget. The support people gives you makes you feel good.” Tickets for the party can be bought for $5 from Mississippi Mills firefighters or at the town municipal offices. There will be a light lunch and entertainment. For more information, call 613-256-2064.

Jumpstart with Arnprior Canadian Tire Each year the annual Jumpstart program takes place at Canadian Tires across Canada, including the Arnprior store. Last year, the local program supported the theme of giving kids a sporting chance by providing financial support for families whose children would normally be unable to participate in organized sport. The Arnprior program, which helped 120 youth in 2013, hopes for similar success this year. Staff and volunteers helped stage Saturday’s showcase whose activities included candy sales, a bounce castle and interaction with members of the Arnprior Fire Department. Above, firefighter James Van’t Slot and six-year-old Austin Broadbent try their luck from the basketball free-throw line.

Galetta Bowls hoping to attract new members

Open house on the greens draws a crowd on May 28 Jessica Cunha jessica.cunha@metroland.com

Was your wedding one that should be featured in a magazine? This is your chance! We want to see it! THE WEDDING TRENDS.COM

TRENDS

Sports - The Galetta Bowls open house drew a handful of people interested in trying the sport for the first time on May 28. Pam Carriere, of Dunrobin, and Woodlawn’s Marie Dupius attended the event and tried their hand at rolling the bowls towards the white jack. They both said they found it interesting, and that it was a good form of exercise. Malcolm Rose, of Arnprior and originally from Newcastle, England, is a competitive bowler with the club. He advised them to soak in some hot water that night because they’d been using muscles that don’t always see action. Michelle Lalande drove from Arnprior with her father Wally Lamoureux to the open house in West Carleton to give the sport a try and as an excuse to get out of the house. Lalande said she was enjoying it so much that she was considering signing up herself. “There’s so much strategy to the game, it’s so interesting,” said five-time national championship competitor David Jefferies. He said, while umpiring for the Canadian National Junior championship in Ottawa a few years ago, a young competitor was asked why he lawn bowled. The young man answered that he “plays hockey, football and soccer and lawn bowling is the most challenging of them all,” said Jef-

feries. The club, which plays on the Donald MacHardy Green at 119 Darwin St. in Galetta, is aiming to grow its membership base this year. So far, they have around 40 signed up, including one who lives in Arizona but plays on the Canadian national team. “We’re trying to grow,” said Jefferies. “People are always welcome to come try.” The club has an active recreational and competitive program, as well as social activities throughout the season. The members bowl Monday, Tuesday and Thursday evenings at 6:30, and on Friday mornings at 10. People interested in trying lawn bowling are asked to contact Bob Smith at 613-622-1586. No experience or equipment are necessary. Galetta Bowls will provide free coaching. All ages 9 to 90 are welcome. Coming up for the Galetta Bowls Club are a number of tournaments to which spectators are welcome: • Mixed pairs: MacHardy/Waterside Cup on June 9 • District pairs: winners to compete in provincials, on June 21 and 22 • Open triples: Russell/Island View Cup on July 7 • Mixed fours: Sadle Waterside Cup on Aug. 11 Visit lawnbowls.galettaca.org or trybowls. ca.

Kirsten Trafford confronts a wall of RND defenders.

Redmen edged out in Eastern Ontario rugby championship

KEITH SCHARF/SUBMITTED

Keisha Clark shrugs off an attempted RND tackle en route to another powerful run.

Sports â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The Arnprior District High School senior girls rugby team came within a hair of qualifying for the Ontario championship last week. The Redmen fell 15-13 to Regiopolis Notre Dame (RND) in the AAA EOSSAA Girls Rugby championship final May 26 in Kingston. Notre Dame advanced to AAA/AAAA OFSAA championship in Hamilton. ADSH was clinging to a 13-12 lead late in the match before RND kicked the match winning penalty with about seven minutes to play. Coach Glenn Wallace reports the final was a very physical game and one in which he felt ADHS held the advantage in ball handling and

attacking ability. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Unfortunately, our discipline (we took far too many penalties and were hit with a 10-minute yellow card as well) and defence was simply not up to our usual standard,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Discipline and defence are absolutely essential in hard fought games and we simply werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t good enough in these areas.â&#x20AC;? However, that was partly due to the youth of the Redmen. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Given that only one player from the entire roster graduates this year, the future is bright for this group and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be looking to return to OFSAA form next year,â&#x20AC;? said Wallace of his Renfrew County champions.

Arnprior cyclist completes ride through Africa Editor’s note: The following was submitted by former Arnprior resident Jennilea Hortop who has completed a charity bicycle ride through Africa. News - The Tour D’Afrique: 120 days, nine countries, and 12,000 kilometres by bicycle. When I saw this experience advertised in a travel book. I knew that I had to do it. When and how, were my next two thoughts. Over the December break in 2013, I discussed the idea with my family and friends and decided, with their support, that I would take a year off from teaching and sign up to complete the 2014 Tour D’Afrique. Besides my love for Africa and my bicycle, part of my desire to go on this adventure was to raise money for Peace Matunda School and Orphanage in Arusha, Tanzania. I first met the children at Peace Matunda in June 2009, and instantly fell in love with their warmth and energy. Knowing that the Peace Matunda children were growing up and would need to attend secondary school, I realized they would need financial support. I decided to make it my goal to raise one U.S .dollar for every kilometre of my journey down to Cape Town. All riders started in Khartoum, Sudan. Excited and nervous cyclists met at the Acropole hotel for our first of 120 rider meetings. Our tour director explained what the next four months of riding through rural East Africa entailed. Heat, sand, road conditions both paved and unpaved, locals, camp life, animals, rain, border crossings, food and water

rations, the list continued. At no point during the meeting did I question what I had signed up for. I felt totally ready to embark on this incredible adventure. Over the course of four months we experienced all that was explained and much more. While riding through diverse landscapes, we saw and experienced local people and culture in its purest form. Children and adults were carrying on in their daily lives as a group of 30+ cyclists whizzed through their village. Road construction, working their land, selling items in a shop, herding animals, local people would often stop, stare and yell, “Where you go?” Many riders would take a break from their saddle for a coke and conversation with whoever was around to chat. Although a language barrier often prevented any serious discussion, the message came through that we were headed down to Cape Town, South Africa and yes we were actually riding our bikes in order to get there. I arrived in Cape Town on May 10 exhausted but excited about the journey I had just completed. The trip taught me a lot about myself and challenged me to reach new limits. Throughout the trip, I was able to raise 4,345 U.S.dollars thanks to friends and family. My goal is to raise 12,000 U.S. dollars to sponsor four children to begin their secondary school education in September 2014. If you wish to sponsor the secondary education of the children at Peace

Jennilea Hortop, who grew up in Arnprior, at the half-way point of Tour D’Afrique, a 12,000-kilometre bicycle ride from Khartoum to Capetown. Matunda, you can through the organization I am working with called Peace By Piece (http://www.peacebypieceafrica.org). Also, on this site are the blogs I wrote during the tour and general information about Peace by Piece.

We love letters to the editor

I look forward to sharing my experiences with the Arnprior community. When I come home to visit in December, I was thinking, if people are interested, I might put on information session somewhere in town to share my experience.

I am now in Bangkok as I will return to teaching at NIST International School here in the city. The school year starts in August, so I will head to UK for a few weddings then to Jordan to visits my sister.

Emerson insists on proper burial for animals on the farm Lifestyle - Emerson was having no part of it! Ronny and Terry had come from Montreal for their usual long summer holidays, and Ronny, just as aggressive as Emerson, insisted he was quite capable of playing a leading role in burying the dead bird. Emerson was high on burying anything that had died on the farm, and having what he called a proper funeral. He drew the line on the long list of farm animals that ended up in our smoke house and on the old pine table

at meal time. Thank goodness, or we would be having a funeral service every few days! What he called a proper send-off was saved for birds, squirrels, or anything else that roamed the large acreage that was our farm at Northcote and which had passed on for one reason or another. He was known to drag a dead groundhog a half mile to give it a proper service. Now, the service usually included us five children standing (although my sister Audrey, the oldest, was getting less and less enamoured with the whole idea) around in solemn wonder as Emerson said a few words, put the deceased in a shallow hole, covered it up, stuck a twig in the mound, and then we were supposed to stand and meditate for at least a full three minutes, which Emerson measured off by counting backwards. That Saturday the dead bird was discovered in the barn yard, and Emerson didn’t take long to announce that we should all gather behind the silo as soon as we finished our breakfast. Ronny said he would be glad to help with the service. Emerson said that wouldn’t be necessary, he had the service down

MARY COOK Memories pat. Knowing Ronny, he had other plans. Well, Mother wasn’t letting any of us away from the house until the kitchen had been redded up, and that included Emerson pitching in. We all had our special chores, and nothing interfered with Mother’s routine, dead bird, or no dead bird. Ronny was to take the table scraps out to the back stoop for our old Collie dog Sport, who, like the rest of us, was well aware of our meal-time routine, and was already sitting on the bottom step waiting for whatever morsel was coming his way. As Ronny was heading out the door, Emerson hollered, “We’ll meet at the silo in five minutes.” Finally the red and white oilcloth-covered table was wiped clean; the dishes washed, dried and put away; and the floor swept. We all headed for the back

door. Audrey couldn’t be coaxed out of the kitchen. “Nonsense ... just plain nonsense,” she could be heard muttering. Everything could have been happening in another country as far as Mother was concerned. As long as our chores were done to her liking, she was happy! Emerson always wore his cap at these ceremonies. I thought that strange since you wouldn’t dare wear a cap in church, and this was supposed to be as close to a church service as you could get without actually going to church. He also took the battered hymn book with him. He would have loved to take the bible which sat in the parlour on the twig table, but Mother drew the line on that! No bible left the house to bury a dead bird. Emerson led us solemnly out of the house, down the back steps and across the front yard towards the silo behind the barn. Little Terry had no idea where he was going, but he sensed excitement in the air, and holding my hand tightly, he skipped along as if we were going to a party.

Ronny was already at the site. And it didn’t take a university graduate to figure out what he had done. There was a soft mound of dirt, and a stick at one end of it, and there stood Ronny standing in solemn wonder with his hands folded in steeple position and his eyes closed. Ronny had buried the bird. Well, Emerson lost all sense of piety, lunged at Ronny, dropped the hymn book, and was about to tear into him when Everett and Earl got a good hold of him and held him back. Ronny had the good sense to head for the house where he knew Mother would never let Emerson lay a hand on him. The rest of us stood around the little mound. I have no idea when he did it, but Ronny had taken a scrap of paper, woven it through the twig at the head of the make-shift grave, and printed in black red crayon, “Goodbye Bird.” Interested in an electronic version of Mary’s books?

Celebrate culture at the Scottish Festival on June 22 Heather Lang McNab Days committee

Events - The theme is Celtic all the way for the annual Scottish Festival on Sunday, June 22 at Waba Museum in White Lake. Children’s Celtic activities and mini-games run all day, starting at 9 a.m. Also on the program are an Irish church service, kirking of the tartan, Scottish and Irish dancers, a pipe tattoo, massed bands, a heavyweight Highland games demonstration and archery. Entertainment will include singing of the national anthem by MPP John Yakabuski and music by Kyle Felhaver and friends. There will be a silent auction, clan tents to visit and vendors - not to mention food. The popular Tartan Tug is back by popular demand - so get your team together and start practicing for this friendly competition. Another kind of ‘competition’ this year is on the tasty side: visitors to the event will be able to vote on the tastiest burger: Highland or steakhouse. It all starts at 9 a.m. Admission is by donation for adults; children get in free. For information, contact co-chairs Boyd and Rose Ann MacLaren at boyd.rose@gmail.com. RIVERDRIVE AT RED PINE BAY

Bid on a garden shed, enjoy dem-

onstrations, take a boat tour on the Ottawa at Riverdrive Saturday, June 28 New at this year’s annual Riverdrive, at Red Pine Bay in Braeside, is a garden shed auction. Local members of the Woodworkers of McNabBraeside and friends are constructing the 10x10 garden shed in modules prior to the event and re-assembling it on site that morning. The design features windows, a door and a large side door to allow for storage of a large piece of equipment such as a garden tractor or a ski-doo. Materials are being donated by local businesses, including Shaw Lumber (Pembroke) and RONA in Arnprior. The men involved in building the shed will be available during Riverdrive to answer questions and offer advice to anyone wishing to take on a similar project. But the best part is that the shed will be included in the silent auction. The lucky bidder doesn’t even have to worry about getting the prize home, as Jim Fraser’s Towing has agreed to deliver the building to its new owner’s property. The garden shed project provides a natural link to the Riverdrive woodworkers’ heritage theme, engages local businesses to showcase their products and the community spirit, represents an interesting demo/display for festival attendees, and will help to raise money to offset the cost of running the annual festival.

Also on the program - and back by popular demand - are the dock diving dogs from Avalon Ranch, which is planning both a diving and landbased demonstration. Ray’s Reptiles is bringing reptiles for the youngsters; there’ll be facepainting, stone-skipping and fossil hunts for the children; live music; canoes, kayaks and paddleboats on loan for trying out; and boat tours along with an oral history of the river. Live demonstrations include carving by Dub Juby, wood-working by Tom Stephenson, log squaring by John Foreman, blacksmithing by Tony Welsh and a pioneer skills showcase by the Pioneer Gatherers. The day-long activities kick off with the Tartan Run/Walk (registration at 8 a.m.). HOME, GARDEN TOUR

Seven homes and gardens are on tap as part of this year’s McNab Days’ festivities, thanks to the Burnstown United Church. The $25 price tag - the 12:30-4:30 p.m. event on June 28 is a fundraiser for the church - will give you an opportunity to visit seven locations in and around the charming village of Burnstown. The gorgeous 20-year-old gardens of Valerie Roos Webster and John Webster transition from a hot, dry Mediterranean-style garden to a more shaded garden. The tour includes a small goldfish pond, as well as a chance to view Valerie and

John’s paintings. At Neat, owned by Kim and Adam McKinty and housed in an 1889 village schoolhouse, is well known for its unique concert venue. The tour also includes the garden. The former Rochester House/ Cheese Factory location, owned by Pat and Ken Forrest, is one of the oldest log buildings in the village. It was used as a cheese factory at one time before reverting to a home, and today houses Prime Valley Realty as well as Rustic Remnants, a gift shop. A tour of the basement will afford an opportunity to see the building’s large timbers and thick floor boards. The gardens at the home of Mary and Peter Stanton were planted in 2011, after the heritage house was destroyed by fire in 2009. The garden surrounding the house has a pastel theme and interesting foliage, with the rear garden reminiscent of a formal French country courtyard. The log cabin/heritage home and garden belonging to Joan and Ross Headrick features an early log cabin from the early 1800s, lovingly furnished in that time period. The tour also includes the owners’ home and surrounding gardens. Joan will be dressed in period costume and perhaps preparing something in her cob oven. Up the road heading to Renfrew, you’ll be able to tour the area’s community radio station. At Valley Heritage Radio Station (CJHR 98.7

FM), you’ll see both turntables and tape decks in use, as well as modern equipment. There may also be a live band. Back in the village, a tour of the Burnstown United Church, built in 1899 and designed by M.C. Eady, will offer a glimpse of the cosy upstairs, which is panelled in oak and has unique characteristics. On the lower level you’ll be able to partake in the strawberry social. There will also be a silent auction at the church. And, if you’re so inclined, you can even walk a labyrinth if you have the time. Passport tickets cost $25, and available at Neat, Valley Heritage Radio, Aikenhead’s in Renfrew, Antrim truck Stop in Arnprior, the general store in Pakenham, Hello Yellow in Almonte and The Running Stitch in Kanata. Children under 12 and pets are not allowed. For more information, check the tour out on Facebook (search for Burnstown) or phone Jane at 613433-3389 or Irene at 613-432-6987. Also as part of McNab Days, there will be a horseshoe tournament at Pinegrove on June 24 and an open house at the municipal offices on June 27. Closing off the week-long festivities is Canada Day in Braeside on July 1, followed by a Scotch Tasting on July 12 at Neat, starting at 7:30 p.m. Stay tuned for regular updates.

Seniorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Month, June 2014 Independence, Activity and Good Health We are living longer. Children born today have the prospect of living a longer life than any generation before them. Every year, the percentage of people in our province who are 65 or older increases slightly.

0605.R0012724602

ES I R A D OUN eniors B T U HO rating S T I W AGINGrs Of Celeb 30 Yea

By 2017, for the ďŹ rst time, Ontario will be home to more people over 65 than children under 15. Provinces, states and countries everywhere are coming to terms with the challenges, and opportunities, posed by an aging population. What can, and will, set Ontario apart is the quality of life that our seniors and their families lead. The provincial government has a mission to make Ontario the best place to grow up and grow old. We know that a longer life is really only a good life if it is lived the way we want, and Ontarioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Action Plan for Seniors is about creating the kind of province where seniors are able to do just that â&#x20AC;&#x201C; make choices to live the way they want. It is also about harnessing the wisdom and experience of seniors for the beneďŹ t of all, and laying the groundwork for a healthy, vibrant and active senior population. In shaping a plan for our seniors, it is critical to be very clear about what we want to achieve. What kind of life do seniors want? What kind of life do we want for our parents and grandparents, for ourselves as we get older, and for our children many years from now? It was these questions that led to the creation of this action plan, and it was the answers that informed its content.

Seniors have contributed to our growth and prosperity and continue to help build our communities and drive our economy. We have heard from seniors that they want to be recognized for these contributions, and treated as important members of society. They want it understood that they are a diverse group, with different socio-economic backgrounds, different skills and abilities, different levels of health and education, and different interests. They want to be able to choose to live at home if they can, and have attractive alternatives if they cannot. We want Ontario seniors to feel safe and supported, and to remain healthy and independent for as long as possible. We want them to remain active and engaged wherever possible, so they are able to continue to achieve excellence as they grow older. With the right plan in place, one that includes supports for caregivers and families, seniors can have all of these things.

Making the community bloom Far left, Connie Legg, left, and Louise Mulvihill enjoy planting flowers next to the gazebo at Robert Simpson Park. Several Communities in Bloom volunteers took part in the beautification effort May 27. The Communities in Bloom committee plants up to 26 large square recycled BIA cement planters, 13 small rectangular BIA planters, the Bell Tower bed, four planters in Robert Simpson Park and two large round beds at the park.

Got Events?

Glen Buder rakes a garden area at Robert Simpson Park. As well, members take care of the maintenance of perennial bed and roses along the road heading down into the park, flower beds along the washroom walls in the park, CN Trail baskets, the planter at the fire hall, and, if money permits, the urns at the Town Hall and museum. The committee also hang baskets on the bridge and attempt to maintain beds under various park signs around town.

Sojourn along the mighty Carp definitely not a race Opinion â&#x20AC;&#x201C; They tried to say it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a race. That it was designed as a nice outing for 20 or so paddlers on May 25. A gentle sojourn down the only river completely inside city limits: the mighty Carp River. It wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t advertised as a competition from the village bridge beside Rivington Street to the Huntmar Road bridge. (And yet organizers had a well-mapped course?) It wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t about you â&#x20AC;&#x201C; meaning me â&#x20AC;&#x201C; obnoxiously splashing the other canoes and kayaks in a pathetic attempt to gain advantage. (For the record, I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need to do all that to win.) But thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s loser talk. The whole â&#x20AC;&#x153;pleasant to see wildlife and lovely backyardsâ&#x20AC;? sounded like something a Leafs fan would say after the regular season. Or a hippie communist would say while scarfing down banquet sandwiches at a chamber of commerce meeting. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nothing more important than a win for your team when gathering with largely strangers from the Mississippi Valley Conservation Authority and Friends of the Carp River on a sunny Sunday morning. That was our attitude - OK, Mrs. Overdunn had a slightly different disposition - when we arrived on scene in our pre-Y2K Volvo with canoe strapped on top.

I bought it on account of the rabbit smoking a peace pipe. How do you move on to the next canoe when this one has a peace pipe-smoking white rabbit on the side? Forget that the rabbit is, technically, yellow. It feels white, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what matters. So we hop out of the car and pull the white rabbit off the roof, lug her to the start line (aka â&#x20AC;&#x153;launch areaâ&#x20AC;?). I was humming Snoop Doggâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Gin and Juiceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; that day.

Paddlers put the ‘friends’ in Friends of the Carp Continued from Page 52

I should have known that would happen. It was my first canoe trip, ever, where my trusty fishing pole stayed at home. “Honey,” I said, “I don’t even intend to kill any fish on this trip. Not one.” “Good for you, baby.” The monster Carp and who knows what other creatures that lurk under those waters were safe, this time, from the master angler. As we started off the lovely greetings poured in from folks in their backyards, either lounging or working among flowers. “Nice garden, Joan!” one of our crew said. A hearty wave in return. These people really put the friendly in Friends of the Carp. Another woman walked up to the river bank with a camera. “That’s my job,” I yell. “I’m supposed to take pictures of you.” “This doesn’t happen every day around here,” she said, snapping pixs of the white rabbit. Must have been a New York Times reporter. “Got my mind on my …”

The white rabbit canoe drifted a little off course that day.

WILDLIFE PROMISED

North America. It must have been an alligator. However, at about the halfway point the enchanting spell was broken when our boats bottlenecked at an impasse. We were required to portage past a tree fallen across the river. I seized the opportunity to instead turn around, thus placing us in the lead. We tell the competition we’re off to canoodle, suckers. Portaging on weekends is not our idea of fun. We easily won the race. So much so we sailed right past the finish line, under the Carp Road bridge and around back of Karson’s.

“It’s kinda hard being Snoop D.O. double G…” A word against paddling too far into the village. There’s a pedestrian bridge resembling something out of the Kiefer Sutherland movie The Lost Boys. Graffiti everywhere, including ‘Light My Fire’ (which means Jim Morrison lives under the bridge.) All in all, we judged it a good day – even without a trophy presentation. Not even a participation medal. “Sippin’ on gin and juice …” Derek Dunn can be reached at derek.dunn@metroland.com.

The presser promised wildlife. And I quote: “Look for turtles, fish, dragonflies, and birds. Golfers may be spotted as you travel past the Irish Hills course.” I was about to start complaining about the lack of wildlife when it suddenly started popping up. Pretty little birds chirping, some requiring Michael Runtz on speed dial to ID. At one point I spotted a crocodile that resembled a log in the water. Mrs. Overdunn quickly corrected me though.

Fly like an Eagle Pilots volunteer for free youth event at Carp Airport June 14

I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll ever forget how amazing it felt to be flying over The Point in Constance Bay or circling over the village of Carp, looking at the places Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve seen a hundred times from ground level but never from above. It was magical.

Jessica Cunha jessica.cunha@metroland.com

News - I must have resembled the cat that swallowed the canary â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 2,000 feet in the air over the Gatineau Hills and I was flying; actually directing a single-engine aircraft up and down, left and right. It was exhilarating. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m almost positive my grin was big enough to split my face in two. Never in my wildest dreams did I think I would have the opportunity to get my hands on the controls of a plane. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one of the reasons Alfio Ferrara â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and a number of other local pilots â&#x20AC;&#x201C; continues to volunteer his time to organize and take part in a Young Eagles event that gives youth a chance to get up in an airplane â&#x20AC;&#x201C; free of charge. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fun for us to see the smiles and hear some of the comments,â&#x20AC;? said Ferrara. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll remember for a long time.â&#x20AC;? I can attest to that.

PROVIDING OPPORTUNITIES

Ferrara, a member of the Experimental Aircraft Associationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s chapter 245 out of the Carp Airport and who works in Kanataâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s high-tech sector, has always liked airplanes. As a boy, he would construct models â&#x20AC;&#x201C; which would eventually turn into building the real thing â&#x20AC;&#x201C; or he would head out to the airport with his father to watch the aircraft take off and land. They are fond memories, and helped Ferrara foster a love of flying. He now pilots a RV9A, home-built, two-seater airplane he constructed with his wife, Shirley Mackey. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve always liked it,â&#x20AC;? he said about flying and the aircraft that make flight possible. Nowadays though, people often donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have the same opportunities as regulations and rules around airports have become stricter. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think kids have the same

Alfio Ferrara, a member of the Experimental Aircraft Associationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s chapter 245 out of the Carp Airport, is volunteering his time and pilot expertise for a Young Eagles event on Saturday, June 14 that gives youth a chance to get up in an airplane â&#x20AC;&#x201C; free of charge. An aerial shot of the Carp Fairgrounds is seen below left, and below right is The Point in Constance Bay. exposure,â&#x20AC;? Ferrara said. Airports have become more commercial, just a place to wait between point A and point B. Loitering by those who donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a plane to catch is often discouraged or even illegal. So in 2011, the Stittsville resident organized the first Young Eagles event. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s intended for youth between the ages of eight and 17; to give them the opportunity to experience some of the same magic Ferrara felt as a young boy. This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s event will take place Saturday, June 14, (with a rain date of Sunday, June 15) from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Carp Airport.

So far, five pilots have confirmed their participation and Ferrara is hoping a number of others will sign up for the event. Young attendees receive a background lesson before getting into the planes, which includes how to use the in-craft microphone and headsets, as well as a flight log book, a voucher to take the online Learn to Fly Course for free and the chance to win full flight training. Then the pilots â&#x20AC;&#x201C; who all volunteer their time, aircraft and fuel â&#x20AC;&#x201C; take the youth up in the planes for an experience theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll likely never forget. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s basically an introductory flight

of about 10 to 15 minutes,â&#x20AC;? Ferrara said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We sometimes let them hold the controls. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s amazing how well some of them do because they play video games.â&#x20AC;? Last year, he flew a young girl over her house in Dunrobin during her turn in the plane. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When we got back, she told her parents she knew what she wanted for Christmas,â&#x20AC;? he said, laughing. And flying doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to be an expensive recreational activity, Ferrara said, adding there are many opportunities for youth to get involved through the Young Eagles program. To register for the June 14 event, email Ferrara at young.eagles@eaa245. org. A reception with snacks, as well as a chance for some hands-on airplane construction, will take place after the flights. More information can be found on the EAA chapter 245â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Facebook page at facebook.com/EAA245 or online at www.245.eaachapter.org. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re people from all walks of life with a passion for aircraft,â&#x20AC;? said Ferrara. And theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re helping to spread the magic, one flight at a time.

Canada’s adult, child obesity rates at historic high Ian Harris RNT

Opinion - We are a nation that is overfed and undernourished. In a recent study, published in the Canadian Journal of Public Health, obesity rates are at an all-time high in Canada with Ontario in third place. Overall, at least one-quarter of Canadian adults are over weight, obese or morbidly obese. As well, we are now seeing an increase in child obesity. Since the 1960s, our plate sizes have grown from 9” to 12” and some manufacturers are using centimetres instead of inches on their labelling to make the plate appear smaller.

Our refrigerators have grown from 19.6 cubic feet to a whopping 22.5 cubic feet. We are nation of supersizing and it is showing up on our waistlines. The effects of obesity are indeed expensive: in 2008, they were estimated to cost the Canadian economy $4.6 billion, up about 20 per cent from 2000. Being obese can lead to cardiovascular disease, diabetes and certain cancers, among them breast, prostate, colorectal and pancreatic tumours. So much of who we are contributes to what we are. Genetic predisposition, upbringing, ethnicity, circumstances, etc. are all factors

Weight management, wellness and nutrition in obesity. Just like everybody else, I had an excuse, albeit a good one my wife Tena had breast cancer and I was busy taking care of her. Before I lost 55 lb., I remember having absolutely no energy. I was flatulent, constantly bloated, especially after a meal and rarely if ever participated in any type of exercise. What was worse, my B12 plummeted to dangerously low levels, my cholesterol was increasing, I was very moody and constantly battling

the blues. I realized that the foods I had come to love and enjoy were destroying me. Sluggish was my name and fat was my game. So what can we do to fight back? Stay away from processed foods which contain high amounts of sugar, sodium and trans-fats. Stay away from fast food restaurant. Stay away from buffets. Lower your intake of animal proteins (dairy, meat and poultry products). Animal proteins are considered acidic and cause inflammation and are also high in saturated fats. Stay away from white sugar, white flour, and white rice, white pasta and

keep sodium to a minimum. Exercise at least three times a week for a minimum of 30 minutes. Exercise not only helps flatten a bulging waistline, it also helps us manage stress and stress has been known to contribute to obesity. Ian Harris of Arnprior is a registered nutritional therapist, certified food psychology coach, certified wellness coach and personal chef. He holds many other certification and specialties within nutrition and specializes in lifestyle and weight management.

With area gardeners finally getting a chance to plant, Blaine Mullins has something for them to which to aspire. He submitted this photograph taken on Sept. 2, 1970 of his father-in-law Joe Carr standing beside a 10-foot tomato plant that he grew outside his Braeside home at the top of the hill near the Gillies House. It had 68 tomatoes on it. R0012667383

News - “We are for all farmers, when it’s good for all farmers, it’s good for the common good of all people.” So said National Farmers Union women’s vice-president Marcella Pedersen. Pedersen has been touring Ontario, including Renfrew County, to speak on food sovereignty, local food and family farms, and the importance of engaging consumers to understand these issues. Pedersen farms near Cut Knife, Sask., raising bees and chickens with her daughter, husband, his brothers and a sister-in-law. She has been with the NFU since 1971. They run 400 hives right now, Pedersen said. They used to run 800, and hope to build back up to that number. As a reflexologist, Pedersen looks at food issues from both a health and farming prospective. Pedersen’s tour of Ontario included a stop in Renfrew. Her message is food sovereignty “People understand food safety, and some understand food security, but very few understand what food sovereignty is,” Pedersen said. Food security is having enough food, and it is culturally correct. “Canada is food insecure because 80 per cent of food is imported and only 20 per cent is grown here. In other words, if there was a trucking strike or an airplane strike, or something, the shelves would be empty in three days,” Pedersen said. “So we are no longer food secure.” A couple of generations ago, the 80-20 ratio was the other way around. “Food sovereignty is adding an extra element,” Pedersen explained. “It’s adding who controls what you eat, and what you grow. We want food sovereignty that farmers decide what they want to grow, and that consumers decide what they want to eat, not the corporations telling us what they are going to grow, and what we are going to eat. That’s want we are facing right now. “To counteract that, we need consumers and people to buy locally,

and grow their own food.” Pedersen said the knowledge and the skills for people to grow and prepare their own food has been lost, and needs to be regained. Pedersen suffered from eczema for about 15 years, but a trip to Cuba on a two-week farm tour last winter cleared it up. She credits it was through the organically-grown sustainable food system Cuba is known for. Back home, she removed kalonji oil, and a few other things from her baking and diet, and the eczema problem was solved. “And then, they tell us it’s safe food,” Pedersen said. “Well, I’m sorry, but if I’m getting eczema, then it’s not safe.” People need to grow and prepare their own food, and buy locally, she stressed. The NFU has declared this the International Year of the Family Farm. “It’s to bring awareness that we need our small farms,” said Pedersen. When farmers only represent one or two per cent of the population, consumer support is needed to fight the big corporations, she said. “The NFU is non-partisan, but we are very political, because we are about making policies,” Pedersen said. “We are dealing with governments all across Canada.” An NFU membership costs $65 but is voluntary. Men, women and youth get an equal vote. One main focus of the NFU is the opposing of Bill C-18, the Agricultural Growth Act omnibus bill. It increases corporate control of seed and increases farmers’ seed costs. “When you give more control to the corporations over your seed, they are controlling your food, again,” Pedersen said. Pedersen spoke of a documentary on food in the future entitled Symphony of the Soil. They poured water through four pop bottles. Each was different. Water was brown in the first, the result of erosion. The last bottle they showed, the water was clear and clean enough to drink. “That’s the way we should be going,” Pedersen said. “If the soil is good, then the food is good, then your health is good.”
