Film project takes off
Avery Mulvihill, 8, escapes through a field in a scene from the David Ridgen film Cicada. This is the first acting job for the young Arnpriorite, whose family says is taking the whole experience in stride. Ridgen, who calls Arnprior his hometown, has several Ottawa Valley locations in mind for the movie. There are opportunities to contribute to the award-winning filmmakerâ€™s project. For more on the story, see Page 6.

Nick Smith Centre will be affected by lack of agreement: Mayor Reid Patricia Leboeuf firstname.lastname@example.org
News â€“ Programs, hours and services at the Nick Smith Centre could be cut if a joint recreation and library agreement cannot be reached between Arnprior and McNab-Braeside, confirmed Mayor David Reid. â€œThe Nick Smith Centre with two ice pads and a pool is really designed to facilitate more than just the Arnprior residents,â€? said Reid. â€œItâ€™s a fairly substantial complex, the costs of running
that, it warrants participation by our neighbours.â€? The cost of running the facility takes the McNab-Braeside property taxes into account. â€œIf we donâ€™t have that obviously the finances are going to be impacted and as a result programs will be impacted,â€? he added. â€œSo I donâ€™t want to speculate at what that might be, but that is the reality. There are going to be some fairly significant impacts to the town of Arnprior and people that use that facility.â€? It could translate into the closure of
No MB support for JRC objectives News - While the joint recreation committee - formed to come up with funding proposals for shared services - hoped for formal support for its mission statement and goals and objectives from McNab-Braeside council, theyâ€™re not getting it. Council rejected a motion to support the items following a discussion at the July 2 meeting. Committee members were upset after discovering council had already decided funding will not be coming from the 2014 tax base. And that a survey was released asking who uses town facilities and is prepared to support them financially.
the pool or affect those who work there, the mayor admitted. â€œI certainly hope that doesnâ€™t happen, but we will have to look at all aspects of that operation,â€? he said. The McNab-Braeside Township has declared it would no longer help pay for the operation of the Nick Smith Centre through property taxes. Mayor Reid doesnâ€™t know why there is even a roadblock to a long-term agreement between the municipalities. See SHOULD, Page 2

Mayor Reid would like to see the joint recreation and library agreement become an election issue. “Certainly I’m not hopeful that we can get a long term agreement in place given the current circumstances,” he said. “So I think the best alternative would be to try to continue to work on the framework of the library and recreation agreement over the next few months.” “Get them in place and it will be clear to McNabBraeside residents and people that are potential running for McNab-Braeside council what the framework agreement will be and what the inherent costs will be,” he added.

“I guess they are concerned on the impact on the taxes, but I think it’s pretty clear from whom I talked to that when they look at the actual costs and when they are actually told the true cost of providing those services,” he said. “They think it is a fair deal.” In 2012, the average household contributed about $55 from taxes to recreation. This could increase every year, but Arnprior council has decided to freeze this amount for the next year as a short-term solution. This amount allows McNab-Braeside residents to use all of Arnprior and Renfrew library and recreation services. Without an agreement in place, township residents will have to pay surcharges and extra fees to participate in activities. This cost will be somewhere in the neighborhood of $150 to $200 per user depending on the number of users, said Mayor Reid. “People that have financial issues will not be able to afford that on top of the regular user fees,” he said. As usage decreases, these fees will increase causing more people to stop using the centre. This will create a vicious circle which would result in cut programs and hours. “This is why we are strongly opposed to a user funded agreement surcharge,” said the Mayor. The lack of a long-term agreement has caused frustration for many members of council.
“I’m just getting a little frustrated with the ratepayer in Arnprior subsidizing that community,” said Coun. Walter Stack. There needs to be a Plan B put in place as Coun. Stack is not optimist that there will ever be a longterm agreement in place unless there is a leadership change. “It’s the seniors and the kids that get the biggest whap,” he added. “Most adults if they really want to be involved in something can direct their personal resources towards it, but seniors are constricted from income and opportunities in terms of travel with transportation and everything else. The kids are going to get beat up in this process. It’s time to draw a line in the sand.”

Disagreements over project priorities Patricia Leboeuf email@example.com
News - Streetscaping and revitalizing of Arnprior’s downtown core has been put off until 2018. It is one of several projects in the 10-year long range capital forecast whose date of completion has been a point of contention during the June 24 council meeting. Priority should be given to the downtown core, Coun. Lynn Grinstead said “I don’t know how the rest of council feels, but waiting until 2018 for that was just not in my forecast,” said Grinstead. “I am seeing that as a project to be looked at a lot sooner then that.” It is a more difficult project to accomplish, needing a large amount of money, but will receive government funding, said Mayor David Reid. He would like to see the project brought forward, “but how that can be accomplished I don’t know. “We made a commitment to the revitalization the streetscape,” he said. Other projects, such as paving the Nick Smith Centre’s parking lot forecasted for 2014, should be pushed back instead, said Coun. Grinstead. “I know that the parking at the Nick Smith Centre is a hassle as it is, but I don’t think spending $200,000 on paving it supersedes the downtown core,” she said. “There are dollars that we are putting in other areas that I think are not as heavy in the importance as continuing on the downtown core.” Director of Recreation Glenn Arthur believes this project is necessary as a major convention is coming next year.
“If it happens to rain a couple days before or during, that parking lot will be a quagmire for those on site,” said Arthur. “People wouldn’t be very happy with that and it certainly wouldn’t show good on the town. That’s why the paving is being put there at that time.” The area is also used by heavy equipment which tears up the gravel parking lot. For Mayor Reid the maintenance of local roads is an important priority “if you look at some of the roads in Arnprior.” “Some rehabilitation, some maintenance on these roads would give them, extend their life cycle,’ said Mayor Reid. “I think it is important that we be proactive on that.” He does acknowledge that adding money into road projects would bulk up the budget, but hopes to find another solution. Coun. Ted Strike agreed that maintaining roads is integral to prevent them from having to be rebuilt completely, which is much more costly and time consuming. “I think we have about 40 per cent of our roads that are now beyond preserving and have moved into the rebuild category,” he said. “They are maybe rebuilding one a year.” “If in fact we don’t do something to increase that funding, the other 60 per cent of roads that we have out there will fall into the rebuild category,” he added. As part of the 10-year long range capital forecast, capital projects have been slated over the next decade. It prevents any spikes or sharp raises in taxes while helping the town budget. It is a changing tool and is altered to reflect town needs and council desires. “There could be things dropped, there could be things added, there could be changes,” said Mayor Reid. “It will change as we deliberate depending on the ability of funds,” he added.

Nailing it at the museum Arnprior and District Museum curator Janet Carlile shows off a recent discovery made on the museum grounds. The item is a wrought iron nail that is about 20 inches long and likely dates back to the 1830s. She found it as she was tidying up outside at the side of the museum. The back parking lot of the building is currently blocked off and under construction as a wheelchair-accessible ramp is installed. The second floor of the museum is also under construction.

County reverses position, agrees to spend on railway bed acquisition Steve Newman firstname.lastname@example.org
News - Renfrew’s County pledge to not spend municipal dollars for any purchase of the abandoned Canadian Pacific railway bed won’t be realized. Following discussion in county council chambers June 26, 13 of 17 county councillors were present to vote on whether to spend up to $50,000 for a property value appraisal to be conducted for Renfrew County, Lanark County and the Township of Papineau-Cameron. Those are the three regions through which the nearly 190-mile railway bed runs. Most of the railbed’s equipment was salvaged last year, except for signal equipment that will be collected at a later date. Ten of 13 voting county councillors supported the resolution, for a weighted vote of
110 to 23. Opposing the motion were Harold Weckworth of North Algona Wilberforce, Mary Campbell of McNab-Braeside, and TammyLea Stewart of Head, Clara and Maria, who said her municipality had already voted to not provide municipal money for rail bed acquisition. The 10 supportive county councillors included Bob Sweet of Petawawa who sits on the committee that is negotiating with Canadian Pacific. RESOLUTION
The resolution called for county council to approve a maximum of $50,000 for appraisal and seed money in support of an anticipated government grant. Sweet indicated the county’s portion of any appraisal would be about
$10,000 if the county receives anticipated government grant assistance. A similar resolution will have to be passed by Lanark County and the Township of Papineau-Cameron if the appraisal is to be conducted. Based on mileage through their respective municipalities, Renfrew County would be responsible for about 70 per cent of the appraisal’s entire cost. That cost is expected to be about $50,000. With a government grant, the county’s portion would be closer to $10,000, said Sweet. The eventual purchase price of the railway bed would not cost real tax dollars. “It’s no secret that we hope to be able to provide a tax receipt for purchase,” said Sweet, knowing the county did that to purchase the former Canadian Tire building in Renfrew to create Renfrew County Place. That property was appraised at about $2 million.
OLA leads opposition to Renfrew County Official Plan Speaking on behalf of the Renfrew County chapter of the Ontario Landowners Association, and accompanied by OLA researcher Liz Marshall, Burns said: “This Official Plan is a News - The Renfrew County Landowners huge bylaw created by Renfrew County that are leading resistance to Renfrew County’s Ofwill bring about more regulation and policies ficial Plan. that ultimately will tighten the noose around the necks of our municipalities who must Public Vehicle/Equipment Auction conform to the Official Plan with still even more regulation and policies upon their ratepayers.” 9:00 am council chambers Civic #2250, County Road 31, Winchester, ON wasThepacked and overflowing.

Before the county council vote, Sweet said, “If we cannot go forward with this, I would think the CP rail negotiations would be finished.” Arnprior Reeve Walter Stack said support of the resolution was absolutely necessary if Renfrew County is to be considered a serious buyer of the discontinued railway bed. McNab-Braeside Mayor Campbell questioned the logic in pledging up to $50,000, to which Sweet said this was a contingency, in the event a government grant did not materialize. Weckworth expressed concern about the cost of underlying infrastructure, such as bridges and culverts. Sweet said the appraisal would cover the cost of land and that infrastructure. “The window of opportunity is here now,” said Whitewater Region Reeve Don Rathwell. The possible appraiser, whose name was not mentioned, specializes in railway appraisals. council, she said the landowners object to the Official Plan “because you have not identified within your plans how this municipal corporation intends to obtain the consent of private property owners, nor have to you identified how the municipal corporation intends to enter into any agreements with private property owners so that the municipal corporation may acquire the property (as required by legislation) for the purpose of allowing it to exercise its authority.” She also pointed the finger at the Ministry of Natural Resources while noting that MNR claims the land owned by the province makes up 87 per cent of land mass. “Our concern,” she said, “is that the true desire of the province is to obtain control of the remaining 13 per cent of the land mass belonging to private property owner.” That control, she explained, would happen “through the Algonquin land claim rights and through enforcement of the Official Plans from our municipalities.” In conclusion, she said the OLA believes municipal corporate officials have been inadequately informed about current legislation and are, therefore, “being manipulated to enforce regulation that places them in jeopardy and places the municipality at risk of financial instability. We are here to protect our property rights and to protect our municipalities.”
County backs farmland tax revenue change Steve Newman Steve.email@example.com
News - Renfrew County has called for the revamping of the Ontario Municipal Partnership Fund, so all municipalities receive full reimbursement of lost property-tax revenue on farmland and managed forest properties. County council has unanimously supported the resolution. The county says this should be supported because the Farm Tax Rebate Program and Managed Forest Tax Incentive were previously fully-funded
by the Ontario government, but are now mainly funded through municipalities’ own property taxes. As the resolution indicates, rural municipalities now absorb the loss of 75 per cent of the property tax revenue from their farmland and managed forest properties.

Cleanliness meets dogliness Major bicycle event Sunday firstname.lastname@example.org
If your dog needs a good scrub, some pampering or extra polishing, look no further than the upcoming Wiggle Wiggle Wash and Spa. The fundraiser will allow dog owners to treat their pooches to a basic dog wash, a ďŹ‚ea bath, a basic groom or something a bit more glamorous. Nail painting, fur feather and body paint is a unique option that will allow dogs to let out their colourful diva. â€œEverything is completely animal friendly,â€? assured event coordinator Valerie Hemphill. The event is held on July 14, between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. All the money collected during the event goes directly to help the Arnprior and District Humane Society and is held on its grounds. The event is new to the societyâ€™s roster of fundraisers â€œbecause we had a tough year last.â€? It has seen a surge of new animals as well as health issues. It is a no-kill shelter and these animals must be fed, sheltered and healed. â€œItâ€™s so important that we have these animals until we have a great home for them,â€? said Hemphill. â€œIt cost a lot of money and there was nothing in the summer. So I thought I would create something that would get the families out there.â€? Humans will also enjoy the dayâ€™s activity. There is a barbecue, music and several vendors and exhibitors on site selling things like collars, beds, clothing, Pupcakes and more. A pet photographer, dog trainer, Royal Canin representatives and the Ottawa Valley Dog Whisper are just a few of experts coming to share tricks to dealing with ďŹ‚uffy. â€œThese are people that are really into animals,â€?
said Hemphill. â€œThe people are so excited,â€? she added. â€œBecause it is so new, itâ€™s really exciting.â€? There will be several hundred dollars in prizes to be won. While planning the event, she was worried that she would run into several roadblocks. Instead the support from local businesses as well as area dog lovers has been overwhelming. â€œI chose downtown Arnprior to do my shopping for my gifts and gift certiďŹ cates because I wanted to promote shopping in our downtown area because they have supported us so well,â€? said Hemphill. The fundraiserâ€™s location was chosen for speciďŹ c reasons. Hemphill was the Arnprior-based OSPCA Agent for six years and has seen exactly what these homeless animals go through. The fundraiser allows people to look into the shelterâ€™s inner workings. â€œThere is an amazing amount of people who have no idea we have a human society in town,â€? she said. â€œLet alone that it is a no-kill shelter.â€? â€œWeâ€™ve had a little bit of bad press about cats and why we wonâ€™t adopt them out like that,â€? she added. â€œAnd I want people to understand that even though it looks crowded these animals have amazing home with the most loving and caring women I have ever met. Their needs are met to 150 per cent.â€? She hopes that it will become an annual event and create growth within the organization. The basic dog wash costs $10, the ďŹ‚ea bath is $15, the basic grooming is $30 and the toe nail painting, body stenciling and fur feathers costs $12 - all of which goes to help the organization. Many vendors have also offered part of the proďŹ ts to the shelter.

AORS organizers spread the word about 2014 event News - It’s almost a year away, but already the County of Renfrew is spreading the word about the next Municipal Trade Show of the Association of Ontario Road Supervisors (AORS). The event is coming to Arnprior on June 4 and 5 with the help of an organizational committee chaired by Steve Boland, the county’s manager of operations. Its vice-chair is Chris Kunopaski, roads superintendent for AdmastonBromley Township. Boland spoke at the June 26 meeting of county council to provide details on the preparation and importance of the annual trade show, which is expected to attract more than 2,000 visitors and about 200 vendors. The 2013 show took place in Brantford. “The two-day show pro-
vides an opportunity for both the suppliers and public works employees to share what they know, about materials and services and products that are available to the roads industry and to the public works industry, and how best to construct and maintain what we’re tasked with on a day-to-day basis,” said Boland. The show also provides the suppliers with a forum to showcase their products. One of the largest trade shows of its kind in Canada, the 2014 show will take place at the Nick Smith Centre. Its executive committee includes Mark Behm, director of public works in Laurentian Valley, who will look after entertainment for the show. Renfrew County business development ofﬁcer Craig Kelley will look after promotions and advertising, while Boland
is overseeing logistics. The trade show’s volunteer ambassador is former county councillor Ted Strike of Arnprior, while the trade show committee also includes AORS representative Gerry Haley of Laurentian Valley, treasurer Rick O’Brien of Golden Lake and Fred Blackstein of Pembroke. “I think we’ve put together a good executive team, and we’re in the process of building the rest of the team,” said Boland. With the trade show representing a good opportunity to promote tourism and economic development locally, Boland added, “Let’s maximize the beneﬁts of having the show close by.” It’s the ﬁrst time the show has come to Renfrew County since the 1992 edition in Petawawa.

Save agreements for election The polarizing issue of library and recreation agreements between the town and township is among the biggest issues to hit the community in recent memory. Hence the status quo should remain until after the next election. The town is looking for new ways to generate revenue. Mayor David Reid researched similar agreements by neighbouring municipalities and determined Arnprior can expect more of a contribution from McNab-Braeside. However, for him, the issue runs deeper than mere dollars and cents. He maintains that the township needs to â€œpay its fair share.â€? That brings the issue into the moral realm, something of a big picture vision for where he sees future relations and governance expectations. Should the whole contribute to services used only by a few? If not, where does the slippery slope end: with residents paying to snowplow their road but not others? The township is looking for ways to save revenue. Mayor Mary Campbell maintains that folks are taxed enough. They canâ€™t afford a newly renovated library and ever-increasing costs for activities such as minor hockey and swimming. For her, too, it is a big picture issue. Camp-
bell insists that many of her residents expect to live within their means; to participate only in activities they can afford. Some politicians hold that tax revenue exists to invest (spend) on projects and services that will generate more tax revenue. Campbell, at least on this issue, is the type of politician who wants to keep taxes low in order to protect the most vulnerable. There is no shortage of examples in the media showing where governments invest poorly and have grown too large. Some would argue even more tax dollars could be saved by doing away with small municipalities all together. Campbell is playing with fire when she follows that view of politics to its logical conclusion. Surely she would maintain taxpayers are getting their moneyâ€™s worth with her council? Reid should also tread carefully. As a businessman he was used to getting his way. The rookie politician probably didnâ€™t anticipate the backlash he would get when he first proposed upping the townshipâ€™s contribution. Will his legacy be that of the mayor who cost the community important services? Clearly, two distinct visions are at play. Yet neither mayor ran openly on them during the last election. Let the voters decide in 2014.
Does council not value reading and physical activity? To the editor: I am perturbed that the McNab-Braeside council has decided to no longer provide funding after 2013 for the recreation and library services located in our neighbouring towns of Renfrew and Arnprior. We pay through various taxes for all of the services we receive from governments whether municipal, provincial or federal. Our municipality does a decent job of providing services such as fire protection, road maintenance, garbage and recycling collection and the provision of local recreation facilities such as ball diamonds, soccer fields and beach/ boat launch sites. I wonder why council has decided that the library and recreation services located in Renfrew and Arnprior are no longer worthy of funding through the taxes we pay. Does council believe reading and physical activity are not valuable and vital to foster a vibrant, healthy and informed community? I would hope not but it would seem that is the case. What council is proposing, that only users or supporters of library and recreation services would pay for them, is just another form of taxation â€“ a tax on reading and physical activity.

It is a form of taxation that would especially hurt those who have a limited income. For shame. If we need to increase taxes to pay for the right to enjoy these services, then be bold enough and truthful enough to say so. Some services should be paid for by all and library and recreation services belong in that group. Spreading the cost out to everyone who pays property taxes makes them more accessible to all. It seems to me that the survey question that council should be asking the residents of McNab-Braeside is, â€œDo you want the township to continue to fund participation in the library and recreation services available in Renfrew and Arnprior from the taxes you pay to McNab-Braeside?â€? And at the same time give us a clear indication of how much taxes might have to increase to continue to pay the towns of Arnprior and Renfrew for the privilege of using their facilities. That is a survey Iâ€™ll answer. This survey doesnâ€™t ask the right question. Sincerely, Barbara White Renfrew

Setback provision makes quarry motion illegal To the Editor: Well, I have been proved wrong. Our municipal governing body did lack what it takes to do the right thing. Some of our councillors may have been too busy to read material provided to them and I do hope they never decide to run for office again. First and foremost, they had no right to bring a motion to the floor to vote on whether or not the aggregate extraction at the Braeside quarry could be closer than 300 meters to residentsâ€™ dwelling. Provincial law states very clearly that the measurement is from the property line. You cannot use someoneâ€™s personal property for

Shooting beavers with a camera in Norway than challenging. After several frustrating, rain-filled days my luck changed. One evening I found beavers in a meandering creek near an old bridge. Crouching behind the stony structure I acquired good photos. I returned at 4 a.m. the next morning and was delighted to find two beavers active there. After a few more successful days I explored upstream and found two places on the shore with fresh beaver sign. One was ideal for early morning viewing so I returned the next day at four a.m., quietly sneaking through Gray Alders to a good vantage point where I began “the Wait.” An hour passed without beavers. As I stood silently, chickadee-like birds called tits flitted through the alders, and Fieldfares - the

delight the animal veered toward the opposite shore and climbed out of the water. Using its front feet it pulled earth under its body before hunching over and depositing castoreum – beaver scent - on the material. Its chemical “no trespassing sign” posted, the beaver returned to the water. It swam across the creek and approached within two metres. I didn’t move, and for several long minutes the beaver floated beside me, constantly sniffing the air, obviously detecting my scent. Eventually it swam out of sight. A few minutes passed and then I heard something behind me. I slowly turned and was astounded to see a beaver sitting a mere metre from me It waddled out of sight and then I heard it noisily chewing wood. I dared not move for fear of scaring it. After several excruciatingly long minutes the sounds stopped. Then I heard a splash and through the corner of my eye caught motion. The beaver was swimming underwater, its flat tail slowing swinging from side to side as huge webbed hind feet propelled it to the far shore. Once there it climbed out of the water and again deposited its scent. My final morning in Norway I returned to the creek one last time. This time three-and-a-half hours passed before the beaver made an appearance. The wait was well worth it, however. After scent marking, it cut down a small shrub and devoured its leaves next to the shore. And for a brief period it groomed its fur, behaviour I had been hoping to observe during my visit. The challenges were great but in only two weeks I managed to attain my desired photos of Eurasian Beavers. However, for my success I must thank another party: our local beavers. After all, they trained me well in the ways of their kind! The Nature Number is 613-3872503; email is email@example.com R0012188792

Recreation stance will hurt low income families To the Editor: I am writing this letter in complaint of the Recreation and Library Non Resident Service Agreement Survey and the stated intent of the council to not fund the library and recreation services for McNabBraeside. If the council has already decided that they will not fund these agreements, why have they sent this survey at all to the residents? I can see no reason whatsoever to ﬁll this survey out if a decision on this matter has already been made as stated in the letter I received. I resent the time, effort and money that has been spent producing and mailing this survey out to residents when I can see no beneﬁt except perhaps to justify a regressive decision made by our town council. I ﬁnd the table of actual payments made to the towns detailed in the survey as a method of inﬂuencing the survey respondents into declining their support by not stating the obvious. In order to make an informed decision, everyone needs to know how many households contribute to these payments so that a per household contribution to library and recreation services can be
calculated. If I estimate that there are 5,000 households in McNabBraeside (which is a wild stab in the dark on my part), I calculate that my household contribution to all services will be approximately $60. This calculation is based on what the 2014 contributions will be to Arnprior plus the 2013 numbers for Renfrew divided by 5,000. Currently there are four members of my family living in my house, which means we would personally contributing $15 each in 2014 towards library and recreation services in both Arnprior and Renfrew in 2014. I consider that a deal, and a great community service to everyone living in this community. Finally, I really take great exception to the fact that cancelling these agreements will inevitably hurt the lowest income people in our community the very most. As has always been the case, some of the people who are struggling the most to make ends meet will be the young families. Cancelling these deals will mean that their children will be denied the ability to join many recreation activities that in no way can be made up through the services that can be provided
by McNab-Braeside. It does not matter how much you try, you cannot provide a swimming pool, indoor rinks and the wealth of programs and library services provided through Arnprior and Renfrew for $300,000/year. I also feel that the retired people in our community that are trying to make ends meet will be hurt by this decision. I will not be ﬁlling in your survey, and I will not be voting for this council in the future. I agree that controlling costs is the job of our town council, but this witch hunt is not something that sits well with me. Cutting services to what will amount to be the lowest income people in our community, the militant and aggressive stance I have seen publicly detailed in the Arnprior Chronicle, and the actual clouding of this issue by publishing half the information needed to make a decision for our residents have permanently turned me off of this council.

Let’s get the record straight To the editor: It seems necessary to set the record straight after all the confusion of the last few weeks. After six years the council of McNab-Braeside has made a decision on the expansion and industrialization of the Braeside Quarry. At the recent Planning Advisory Committee meeting, Council voted not to subject the quarry neighbours to a permanent asphalt plant in their back yards. That was good! But council members Christine Blimkie and Aldene Styles did vote in favour of just precisely that. The second part of the Miller request was for the expanded size of the quarry. The motion that Mayor Campbell had originally made and Council passed was to have a separation distance of 450 m to the property lines of the neighbours to the industry, because that was the distance Gary McLaren of MNR said complaints from residents generally stopped and there was less chance of adverse effects. But when the decision was to be ratified at the next council meeting, Brad McIlquahm moved that the quarry be allowed to expand to within 300 m of the neighbours’ houses, not even their property lines. This means, in effect, that Miller is using neighbours’ property for the 300 m buffer required by law. The law states clearly that this 300 m separation distance must be from the property line of the sensitive receptor, (the neighbour) to the Class III Industry, not the neighbour’s house! Needless to say, neighbours are upset to suddenly hear that the property they own, that they have been paying taxes on for years, property that had always belonged to them had suddenly, with a simple vote of a majority of Council become land they
could no longer use, land that was a buffer zone for Miller Paving Ltd. Think about it. You certainly wouldn’t allow your children to play there as they could be hit by flyrock from an errant blast. Remember that flyrock covered Usborne St. in August 2007 and did a great deal of damage to a neighbour’s property all within 300 m of the blast? How do you ever sell your property when you have to tell the buyer that actually all this property really belongs to Miller even though you have to pay for it and pay taxes on it? One neighbour will lose close to 50 acres of her property as a Miller buffer. A Class III Industry is loud, dusty and polluting. That’s why the law sets minimum separation distances so the business can operate and the homes surrounding it can enjoy the use of their property – all of it! A reasonable compromise would have been to allow the quarry to expand to 300 m from neighbours’ property lines, in other words to follow the law. This would allow Miller over 100 years’ worth of aggregate, and would allow neighbours to keep their property. Brad McIlquahm’s motion also allowed all of the Miller property that is not to be currently extracted, to be zoned for aggregate reserve. In doing so he ignored the Provincial Policy Statement, again the law, requiring the municipality to zone to protect the Significant Wildlife Habitat, which includes wetlands, deeryard, wildlife corridor and the globally rare alvar. So, we are left with some clear implications for the whole community. Miller, a multinational company with no ties to this community, now has over 200 years’ worth of aggregate to mine, at the expense of the neighbours’ property. Because Council did not insist that Miller put up a bond to cover any
Metro City Realty Ltd. (Renfrew) Brokerage A locally owned Independent Member Broker
disaster such as, water contamination, major water loss, blasting accidents, asphalt plant fire from a temporary asphalt plant etc., Miller could declare Smiths bankrupt and the township would have to pick up the tab. Miller may still put in a temporary asphalt plant and permanent concrete plant without even a 300 m buffer between the industry and the neighbours; Miller can destroy the rare wildlife habitat with impunity; there will be higher taxes for the whole township to pay for road reconstruction from truck damage; there will be higher taxes to make up for the loss in property value of all the homes affected. Council members responsible for this mess are Christine Blimkie, Aldene Styles and Brad McIlquahm. And again to set the record straight: MNR has refused to give Miller an aggregate permit for the expansion, with 25 pages of solid reasons for their refusal; MOE has said that they may not give Miller a Permit To Take Water for the expansion, again clearly not a ‘go ahead’ as Miller cannot quarry without it; hundreds of people have expressed their disapproval of the expansion; two independent experts have raised alarm bells with Miller studies; we also have a legal opinion plus a professional planner who have warned that this is not legal. Council knew all of this! Despite what you have read in this paper previously, FACTMB Inc. does not agree with or condone the above council decision. Norma Moore FACT-MB Inc.

To the Editor: In typical Pakenham fashion, the residents of Mississippi Mills and visitors were welcomed, fed and entertained for the Canada Eve celebrations. From the main street which was overďŹ‚owing with young and elderly in awe as the parade worked its way twice around the route to the local entertainment in the Stewart Community Centre and the ďŹ reworks which lit up the entire sky, one could feel â€˜I love you Canadaâ€™ in the air. When the parade is required to slow down and get closer because it has taken up the full two streets in the village, one knows it has been a success. This is demonstrated by all who attend, individuals who decorate and drive ďŹ‚oats, bring in horses, large and small tractors, antique cars, decorated bicycles, walk a calf, play music, pipe band, a very pregnant Princess Kate with her full contingent of attendants and the presence of the â€˜Shrinersâ€™, who with their various units always add so very much enjoyment and pleasure to this special Canada Eve in Pakenham. Thank you to everyone for

Fishing for duckies
In last week’s coverage of the St. Joseph’s Catholic School Grade 8 graduation the name of an award was incorrect. The Lisa Francis-Parent Memorial Award was given to Stephen Hass. Last week’s coverage of the Walter Zadow Public School Grade 8 graduation contained a couple of errors. Graduate Taylor Rivett’s first name was spelled incorrectly. And it was John Young who won the proficiency award in math and science. We apologize for any inconveniences caused by the errors.

Campanale barbecue a boost for Prior Chestnuts The Prior Chestnuts Dragonboat team was one of the main beneficiaries from the proceeds of the annual Campanale barbecue in Riverwood Estates in Arnprior. The barbecue, in its seventh year, was held June 23 and attracted about 150 friends and neighbours. Company owner and barbecue host Vince Campagnale checks out the dragonboat with team members Debbie Reid, Donna Chateauvert, Cathy LeBlanc, Leslie Faraday, Julie Stashick, Debbie Sentence and Ola Armstrong. He said that the spirited team of cancer survivors has been one of his favourite charities, particularly as so many members live in the subdivision.
