News - For several years, Canadian National has threatened to pull up its line that runs from Pembroke to Ottawa, and now the process has begun. There’s a hiccup for CN, however. Canadian National recently pulled up its track between Pembroke and Beachburg, but efforts to continue that dismantlement, just a few kilometres from Portage-du-Fort, last week met with some resistance. Members of Transport Pontiac-Renfrew (TPR) and local municipalities, including the Pontiac County Regional Municipality (MRC), gathered at the railway crossing near where more than 100 metres of railway cars were parked, ready to take away rail scheduled for dismantlement. That’s when local Quebec municipal officials and members of TPR made their statement by driving one of MRC’s staff vehicles over the tracks and joining the vehicle for a display of defiance in front of several local journalists. The truck remained in place until CN hired a local tow truck company to remove the vehicle, only to have the company say it wouldn’t take the job. Meanwhile, on Thursday, Aug. 15, two other local citizens parked their trucks at the railway crossing to voice their displeasure
with CN. MRC officials say the law is on their side, after receiving provincial passage of bylaw 192-2013 that forbids any new land or construction use, “including the dismantlement of the track and the alienation of the Canadian National railway section crossing the municipalities of Bristol, Clarendon, Litchfield and Portage-du-Fort.” In contrast, CN director of public and governmental affairs Jim Feeny said CN considers the bylaw invalid in this case because MRC Pontiac has no jurisdiction over CN’s federally-regulated assets. At the ceremonial demonstration Aug. 13, Pontiac Warden Mike McCrank read a written statement. “It is an important time and a very momentous time,” said the warden, “because if we lose this fight our chances of economic upswing is almost slim to nothing. To CN today, I want to say that Canadian National has shown its true face to all Canadians, with their total contempt for the municipalities of Portage-du-Fort, Litchfield, Clarendon and Bristol, as well as MRC Pontiac, not to mention (the Ministry of) Municipal Affairs and the Quebec government who endorsed our interim control bylaw.

Back to the garden A garden party at Island View Suites last Saturday brought out a number of residents and friends. Some, such as Erma Cotnam, left, and Joan Juby-Loft, were specially dressed for the occasion; and although the band did a fine version of When Irish Eyes are Smiling, Cotnam lovely voice added tremendously to the long-time favourite.

Community - The Arnprior White Pine Festival is just around the corner and organizers are thrilled with this year’s lineup. “Everything looks great at this time, just pass this over to the weather man,” said organizer Art Smith. The festival kicks off Friday night with a free family movie - Despicable Me - in Robert Simpson Park and an adult dance at the Nick Smith Centre featuring Disturbing the Peace. Saturday events are centred in Arnprior’s downtown on John and Elgin streets and include a Legion breakfast, kids’ shows, entertainment and the Giant Tiger train. On Sunday, downtown events include a
classic car show, vendors and entertainment. Robert Simpson Park will be abuzz with activity Sunday with the Caitlin Stewart Memorial Highland Dancing Competition taking place and the Arnprior Dragon Boat Club providing Sunday afternoon rides for $10 in a joint venture with the Arnprior and District Food Bank. Last minute changes include the cancellation of the Saturday hockey tournament. The dunk tank and fish pond will only be downtown on Saturday and health issues have forced The Debenham Bros to cancel their 11 a.m. performance, but bluegrass band Concession 23 will take the spot.

Holding their newly-minted township hall name plates are, from left, Stacey Blair and Angela Lochtie. Welcoming them to the McNab-Braeside staff are chief administrative officer Noreen Mellema and Mayor Mary Campbell. Blair is the new deputy clerk, and Lochtie takes over as municipal treasurer.
McNab-Braeside hires new staff Derek Dunn email@example.com
News - McNab-Braeside welcomed two new staff members with a combined 30 years experience in both the private and public sectors. Angela Lochtie was appointed treasurer of the township on Aug. 13. She has more than 18 years of financial management experience working in both the public and private sectors. She’s worked at St. Joseph Corporation and Nestle Canada gaining experience in project management, costing, budgeting, and financial analysis. For the past five years Lochtie has worked for the federal government in vari-
ous roles as a senior financial advisor at the Department of Justice. A certified management accountant, she has public finance accountant designations from the society of management accountants of Ontario, and holds a bachelor of commerce in accounting from Concordia University. She lives in the township with husband Charles Crispim and their two sons. DEPUTY CLERK
Stacey Blair is the new deputy clerk, bringing with her some 12 years of municipal experience with training and education in public administration and land use planning.
She has a BA from Queen’s University and completed the municipal administration program, along with courses in planning and parliamentary protocol. Most recently, Blair was acting clerk at the Township of Montague. Before that, she worked a decade with the Town of Mississippi Mills in various capacities including planning assistant, heritage committee coordinator and deputy returning elections officer. She is chair of the Mississippi Mills committee of adjustment, and an active member of AMCTO. Blair and husband Drew live in Pakenham on an active farm with their three teenage boys.

News - Council won’t clarify confusion over the recreation and library agreements survey before they are due back to the township office. A group calling itself McNab-Braeside Residents for Reading and Recreation sent a list of 20 questions to Mayor Mary Campbell, all having to do with the implications of filling out the survey. About 10 other residents opposed to council’s decision to not fund services and programs from the tax base in 2014 also emailed seeking clarification. Some attended the Aug. 13 council meeting but were disappointed to learn that council will only respond after they’ve read the survey results. Coun. Aldene Styles said responses could change between now and when the remaining 60 per cent of surveys are due back in early September. Campbell said it is her personal policy to answer every question raised by a member of the public - but in due time, when all the opinions and statistics are gathered. A deadline was not included on the survey but council has since set a date of Sept. 1 for residents to return what Campbell agrees is
more of a questionnaire. The group has encouraged members not to fill out the survey. Some fear it will lead to receiving a separate bill in the mail for library services and/or recreation programs at the Nick Smith Centre. Others have more nuanced answers than are available on the survey. For instance, some would be willing to pay a little more for, say, minor hockey, but not twice as much, which could happen if others abandon the sport due to a slight increase. Asked if council intends to hold off making significant changes to arrangements with Arnprior and Renfrew until after the 2014 election given the deep rift the issue has caused - Campbell said it will be an election issue no matter what happens in the meantime. But she was adamant that “we cannot have another year like this one” where core items like roads and emergency equipment are not purchased. She said even without those provinciallymandated expenses abandoned in favour of library and recreation agreements, the tax increase was almost in the double digits. “As you can see, the story continues to unfold,” Campbell said.
News - More Arnprior roads may be receiving a facelift after the town received an extra $551,539 grant for capital projects. The Landrigan Street reconstruction project’s more than $700,000 price tag will be primarily funded by the recently awarded Municipal Infrastructure Investment Initiative (MIII) grant. Because the town received this grant, it will be able to take on an additional $456,000 worth of road projects. Decosta Street, Baskin Drive, and Harriet Street will be receiving a repaving and infrastructure reboot within the year. If money is left from the initial projects, Caruso, Sheffield and McNab streets may also receive some work. Despite the pockmarked road conditions, work on Bridge Street will be put off until 2015 to better sync with the reconstruction of the sanitary sewer along Second Avenue. “Based on our observations of the road, it looks like it will last two more years without further extreme deterioration,” said Guy Bourgon, Director of Public Works. “There will be some slight deterioration. We will probably add some cold patch to the street to make it last two years.” It is also an economy issue as waiting to do both streets will save money and time. Mary Street was a potential project, but it was turned down by council on Aug. 12 as it
is still in good shape. “I don’t think its fair to the other people who live on streets … that are absolutely terrible,” said Coun. Ted Strike. “To spend $20,000 on Mary Street for cosmetics, I just can’t accept it.” The money for these streets will come from the town’s Gas Tax Reserve Fund. Any remaining money will be used for other projects such repairs and hot patching. “It gives them an opportunity for them to do it on a few streets that require a bit more than cold patching,” said Coun. Lynn Grinstead. “That’s the number one complaint in this town. If I hear it once I hear it ten times a week how bad our roads are.” The suggestion to repave the Nick Smith Centre’s parking lot with any remaining funds was brought up, but shot down. The town was one of 11 municipalities across the province to receive the prestigious MIII grant. It took a year of hard work and constant paperwork to get approved. Unlike typical stimulus grants, the MIII had the municipalities compete ferociously, with three grueling steps and harsh criteria. “To me this is one of the biggest things that I have done since I’ve come here,” said CAO Michael Wildman. “It does allow us to consider other projects as part of the infrastructure program,” he added. The extra money is a huge boost to the capital project funds and will be able to assist future projects, confirmed Mayor David Reid.

CN is killing communities: Pontiac Warden Continued from front
nities, and Iâ€™m telling you today, CN, Iâ€™m not ready to die. Iâ€™ll ask this community to stand together and defy this Goliath at all costs.â€? McCrank followed that statement with another at a Monday, Aug. 19 news conference in front of the industrial park in Litchfield, two kilometres from the earlier photo op on the local rail line. After his official statement, McCrank noted that this particular line was the TransCanada line many years
ago. â€œToday, it is only a small part of what was, but itâ€™s life and death for small communities,â€? said McCrank in his Aug. 13 statement. â€œWeâ€™re just one little place in Quebec, but thereâ€™s places out West and down East who have lost their communities because theyâ€™ve lost their rail. â€œBusinesses, and large businesses, will not survive long-term unless they have affordable transportation to get to their markets. R0012265334_0822
â€œWe are a small community, but CN has done this to a lot of communities in the past and they will do it in the future. And theyâ€™re good at it. What theyâ€™re doing is theyâ€™re killing communities. If we, as Quebecers and Canadians, allow them to kill our communities, weâ€™re not going to have much left in 20 years.â€? Referring to local paper mills, hotels and other business, McCrank added: â€œCN was built by our commu-
Meanwhile, McCrank says TPR has worked â€œtirelessly to come up with solutions,â€? but without much success because of CNâ€™s inflexibility. Canadian National doesnâ€™t see it that way. In fact, CNâ€™s repurchase of lines from Quebec Railway (of which Ottawa Central Rail was part) in 2008 included CNâ€™s assumption of certain debt and liability as well as a cash exchange based on the line equipmentâ€™s fair market value, says Feeny. Feeney was also part of the meeting the next day, Aug. 14, in Montreal with manager of network strategies John Brayley and Pontiac MRC director general RĂŠmis Bertrand. The meeting was calm and professional, but nothing was really solved, said Bertrand. The sticking point, said Bertrand, is CNâ€™s unwillingness to confirm availability of the rail line for future business use. â€œThere are quite a few interested parties (businesses),â€? said Bertrand, including among them the current Trebio wood pellets firm
Enough is enough. Thatâ€™s the word Aug. 13 from these members of the Pontiac MRC (Regional County Municipality), local municipalities and Transport Pontiac-Renfrew, as they oppose the presence of the Canadian National cars brought in to carry away dismantled sections of the CN railway line in the Pontiac MRC communities of Bristol, Clarendon, Litchfield and Portage-du-Fort. From left, in the front row, are Maurice White, Jamie Chasles, Gerry Phillipe, Louise Donaldson, Brittany Morin, Bill Stewart, Raymond Durocher, Pontiac County Warden Mike McCrank, Jack Lang and Ann-Marie Vaz. that operates out of Pontiac MRCâ€™s industrial park. Feeny says future local business possibilities for CN tumbled with the 2009 closure of the Smurfit Stone plant, which was the only user of the local line at the time. More recently, CN began the federally-related discontinuance process â€” the same process followed for the CP line that has since been pulled up in Renfrew County. That process included efforts, said Feeny, to find a customer or a buyer for the line. Efforts included request for a
tax credit (similar to how Renfrew County purchased the former Canadian Tire building in Renfrew for $1 and a $2 million tax credit to Canadian Tire). But Revenue Canada rejected that proposal, said Feeny. â€œWeâ€™ve worked the last three years to try to keep the (local) rail line in operation â€Ś Unfortunately, those efforts have not been successful,â€? said Feeny. One of TPRâ€™s spokespeople, Louise Donaldson, said, â€œThe MRC has really supported rail unconditionally. Setting up
that bylaw was not easy. For it to be defied is fairly critical. Clearly, CN has an army of lawyers, which small communities and local governments do not have, so how will this play out? I have no clue.â€? Just a few metres away are the CN cars brought into to carry dismantled track to other locations. Pointing at the crawlers and long line of storage cars (a.k.a. sleds) lined up behind, Pontiac County vice-warden Raymond Durocher said with distaste: â€œYou call that an economic ghostbuster.â€?

Permit needed before construction can begin
Come visit our new website @ insideottawavalley.com
Patricia Leboeuf firstname.lastname@example.org
News - The Town of Arnprior now has legal recourse against developers who begin construction without the required paperwork. By instituting a new Commence Work Bylaw on Aug. 12, the town will be able to issue stop work orders, impose fines ranging from $500 to $100,000 and inspect the property. Land developers will have to apply for a commence work permit, free of charge, or face fines. â€œThe key point is that we are now able to stop (the work) in the way of an order,â€? said CAO Michael Wildman.â€? We are now able to order certain remedies and in failure to comply we are actually able to do the work ourselves.â€? The bylaw is put in place to protect the town and its residents from liability and subpar work. The town has had trouble in June with an unnamed land developer building without proper Ministry of Environment (MOE) permits, which has opened the town to potential legal issues. â€œThey did not enter requisite agreements with the town,â€? said Wildman. â€œThey did not post securities, nor did they post insurances to protect the town.â€? The developer chose to forge ahead because there were significant delays at the MOE level. â€œIt takes an awful long time to get approvals out of the ministry and out of frustration this happens from time to time,â€? said Wildman.
â€œIn the absence of a bylaw, itâ€™s going to happen more. This is just something we can do to make sure that the town and its infrastructure is properly built and properly protected.â€? The developer could be in violation of the Ontario Water Resources Act for constructing waterworks without MOE approval and there could be other unknown problems as the municipal inspectors cannot easily gain access to the property to verify its construction. â€œBecause the town is not able to inspect the works we cannot guarantee that these works constructed to our standards,â€? said Wildman. â€œHad there been damage to property or work related, the town would not have been protected because of the absence of the (necessary) documents.â€? During the warrantee period, the land developer is be liable if the waterworks are unstable or damages occur, but once that time is up the city takes over the responsibility. The town plans on using cameras to view the waterworks from the inside. Once the camera work is reviewed, inspectors may be sent to look if needed. â€œWeâ€™ll do it in stages,â€? said Wildman. â€œWeâ€™ll try to be reasonable. If we donâ€™t have the comfort that we feel we need. Then weâ€™ll go to the next level and escalate accordingly.â€? The town did issue a stop work order which went unheeded as there was no bylaw in place to enforce it. It took an appeal from the MOE before the developer took the request seriously. The land developer has since gotten proper permits and has resumed construction. Wildman politely turned down requests to share the name of the land developer.
Town can now levy fines up to $100,000 to those infringing upon new bylaw

A 20-year-old woman fleeing from Arnprior was apprehended using a rarely employed police tool: the spike belt. The resident of Pembroke tried to escape police while Renfrew Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) officers were conducting an investigation in town. She sped her way down Highway 417 in a Montana Van on Aug. 16. Several fully marked cruisers attempted to stop the vehicle but the driver refused to stop. She was caught after the OPP deployed a spike belt at the Richardson Side Rd overpass and successfully ended the car chase. The tires deflated on the van and the driver struck another vehicle before coming to rest in the ditch. She was then taken into custody. She was charged with taking a motor vehicle without consent, dangerous driving, failure to stop for police and breach of probation. The driver of the suspect vehicle and the driver of the other vehicle suffered minor injuries. The investigating officer is Cst Marc Bennett of the Renfrew Detachment. The woman appeared in bail court in Pembroke on Aug. 20. The results of which were unavailable by press time.

Economy grows as incomes lag for bottom 90% Recent reports show richest one per cent significantly outpacing other income earners Derek Dunn email@example.com
EMC news â€“ The federal government continues to trumpet Canadaâ€™s growing economy even as two more reports point to growing inequality and poverty. Finance Minister Jim Flaherty and other Conservatives have said for years that Canadaâ€™s economy is doing relatively well. They point to the growing Gross Domestic Product (GDP) as proof. But the GDP benefits investors more than working people. They note the an unemployment rate is hovering just over 7 per cent. But many jobs created since the 2008 financial collapse are not the good-paying, union jobs in manufacturing; more and more jobs created today are in the low-paying service industry. It has created a startling income gap examined in reports by two national think tanks. The right-wing leaning Conference Board of Canada issued a report card saying the countryâ€™s potential and reputation are falling when it comes to societal issues like inequality and poverty. It gave Canada a â€˜Bâ€™ â€“ good for a seventh place ranking out of 17 developed countries, a middle-of-the-pact ranking that leaves room for improvement. Social democracies such as Denmark, Norway, Sweden, and Finland top the rankings; countries with lax financial regulations - Japan
and the U.S. â€“ got a â€˜Dâ€™ ranking. Inequality â€“ both income and gender - was the primary reason for Canadaâ€™s ranking, according to the report. The top 10 per cent have enjoyed a 34 per cent rise in income over the last 30 years (about the time trickledown economics was introduced), while the bottom 10 per cent have seen their earnings rise just 11 per cent, according to the report. The reportâ€™s author, Brenda Lafleur, is concerned about inequality in education most of all. â€œBetter education is a powerful way to achieve growth that benefits all,â€? Lafleur said. â€œIt is very hard for the child of poor parents to do well (if costs continue to escalate).â€? WORST POVERTY RATE
Canada has the dubious distinction of having the highest poverty rate among the 17 countries the report looked at. The child poverty rate is 15.1 per cent, up from 12.8 per cent in the mid-1990s. Only the U.S. ranked lower. Working-age poverty is 11.1 per cent, up from 9.4 per cent in the late 1990s, good for a tie with the U.S. and Japan. The Conference Board said without government benefits and taxes, poverty rates would jump to 23 per cent, compared to the current 12. Lafleur said Canadians self-identify as a
compassionate country, but only because they compare the country with the U.S. Of the positives for Canada, acceptance of diversity, life satisfaction, and lower rates in homicides and burglaries were better than most of the other 17 countries. RICH GETTING RICHER
The Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives (CCPA) did an analysis of recent Statistics Canada data and revealed that the income gap between the richest one per cent and the rest of Canadians continues to grow. The rich take in almost $180,000 more today than 30 years ago (adjusted for inflation). The bottom 90 per cent saw income gains of just $1,700. Usually the presumption is that rural folks are worse off than those in cities. But when it comes to the countries three largest cities, the bottom 90 per cent actually make less today than in 1982. Theyâ€™ve seen drops of between $224 and $4,300. The top one per cent have seen gains between $162,000 and $297,000, according to the left-leaning think tank. CCPA senior economist David Macdonald is concerned workers may begin to lose faith in the unwritten social contract. â€œIf the bottom 90 per cent are not sharing in prosperity, then you have reached a crisis,â€? Macdonald said. â€œYou begin to ask if the sys-
tem is fair. That idea that if you work hard, can you still get ahead?â€? He said the top one per cent in Ottawa made an average $237,000 in 1982. Today itâ€™s $394,000, an increase of 67 per cent. The bottom 90 per cent saw an increase from $32,000 to $37,000 or a 14 per cent trickle up. Macdonald said one of the solutions is to tax the top 1 or 2 per cent more. Critics say they are the job creators and will simply move elsewhere if taxes become too burdensome. Macdonald doubts that will happen. There are still ultra rich living in heavily taxed jurisdictions like the Nordic countries. The rich were taxed at much higher rates in Canada, too, between the 1930s and 1970s. Thatâ€™s when the middle class was strongest. â€œThey can afford to give a little more,â€? he said. Canadaâ€™s most equal province, according to the CCPA report, is Prince Edward Island. The most unequal place is Calgary, by far. The top one per cent of Calgarians saw a $570,000 pay increase since 1982. The bottom 90 per cent saw an increase of just $2,000. â€œThis new data shows how extreme income inequality has become in places like Calgary,â€? Macdonald said. â€œIt also reveals for the first time how the bottom 90 per cent of those in Canadaâ€™s biggest cities of Toronto, Vancouver, and Montreal actually make less today than they did in 1982.â€?

Be loud, be proud
apital Pride has returned to Ottawa, starting last weekend and continuing to Aug. 25. The theme for this yearâ€™s festival is Be Loud, Be Proud. This is a message that all Canadians can take to heart, to celebrate our nationâ€™s acceptance of all citizens regardless of their race, language, religion or sexual identity. These are basic human rights entrenched in Canadaâ€™s Charter, despite lingering opposition from fringe groups. Canadaâ€™s good example is even more noticeable when compared with our international counterparts. Russia, for instance, has drawn criticism from across the globe for a law that bans gay pride rallies and forbids even discussing homosexuality with youth. The Russian sport minister pledged to hold athletes attending the 2014 Sochi Olympics accountable if they went out on the streets and attempted to â€œpropagandize.â€? The move was criticized by John Baird, Canadaâ€™s foreign affairs minister, who said the Russian ministerâ€™s statements were â€œan incitement to intolerance which breeds hate.â€? But Bairdâ€™s comments immediately drew fire from Real Women of Canada.
The conservative womenâ€™s group said Bairdâ€™s comments stepped on the toes of another countryâ€™s sovereignty, family and religious values. Defending a countryâ€™s action based on its cultural/socio-religious identity is a tired argument that too often has been trotted out for public display in the aftermath of human rights abuses. The rights and freedoms of the individual are a basic human law that predates and supersedes the sovereignty and constitutions of nations. Real Womenâ€™s comments were immediately slammed by Canadians across the country, highlighting the cultural shift from intolerance to acceptance that has taken place over recent decades. This national movement toward tolerance is by no means strictly a Canadian phenomenon. Recognition of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered rights are gaining acceptance across North America and Europe, albeit at different rates and to different degrees. In the United States, even the Grand Old Party has grudgingly accepted the inevitability of gay marriage. As Sam Cooke once so eloquently wrote, change is gonna come.
Miller nuisance decision upheld: A community is vindicated FACT-MB
Opinion - Nearly two years ago, Braeside Ridge residents won a judgment against paving giant Miller Group for adverse effects suffered from a temporary asphalt plant located in the Braeside Quarry. Miller appealed the ruling. Now, on Aug. 15, Justice Martin James of the Ontario Divisional Court has upheld the decision of Deputy Judge Rod Sauriol of the Renfrew Small Claims Court, finding Miller guilty of nuisance. A temporary asphalt plant was operated in the Braeside Quarry in 2009, then again in 2010 and 2011. During that time neighbours experienced adverse effects; that is, health symptoms from the emissions. Some of these were: irritation of the eyes, nose and throat, loss of appetite, dypsnea (shortness of breath), headaches and nausea. Also sleep patterns were disrupted to the point of exhaustion and they suffered stress and worry. Deputy Judge Sauriol found in favour of nine residents of the Braeside Ridge who charged Miller Group with nuisance, trespass and negligence because of adverse effects from

the temporary asphalt plant operated by Miller in the Braeside Quarry in the fall of 2009. Ecojustice Canada, formerly Sierra Legal Defense, represented residents in the action. Judge Sauriol accepted the credibility of the residents completely. He said, â€œI accept the evidence of the plaintiffs without any hesitation. I find their evidence was truthful and unexaggerated. Even under lengthy cross-examination it was not negated to any extent that would cause me to disbelieve any one of them. The evidence of the plaintiffs I accept without reservation.â€? Judge Sauriol found Miller guilty of nuisance based on the criteria: 1) severity of harm, 2) the character of the neighbourhood, 3) the usefulness of the defendantâ€™s conduct and 4) whether the plaintiffs displayed abnormal sensitivity. Harm was severe; this was formerly a quiet rural neighbourhood; Miller was a private, for-profit company, not a public utility; and the plaintiffs were not abnormally sensitive. Justice Jamesâ€™ support of Deputy Judge Sauriolâ€™s ruling is important for a number of reasons. It means that a community, suffering from the same pollution, coming together, co-

operating and working together towards a common goal can succeed. This is a legal test that if you marshal the evidence, you can win. For the people of Ontario, this ruling shows that the law is there for the recovery of damages when the facts are clear that loss of enjoyment of property is caused by the pollution of the environment. This decision is important for this Braeside community for another reason. Miller wants to put a permanent asphalt plant in this location. Justice Jamesâ€™ decision makes it clear that such a plant would be a public nuisance. Legal counsel for the Braeside neighbours in the Miller appeal, Robert Peterson, formerly of Ecojustice Canada, says, â€œThis means that the â€˜public utilityâ€™ of Millerâ€™s work does not trump the peopleâ€™s right to live free of nuisance. It is good as an environmental precedent, since it does not endorse the view that polluters serving some public good get off the hook.â€? Clearly the law says that polluters donâ€™t have the right to pollute just because they have a public contract, in this case paving Highway 417. Both Linda McCaffrey and Dr. Lynda Col-

lins, formerly of Ecojustice Canada, were ecstatic over this clear vindication of their win. They were legal counsel for the Braeside neighbours, working pro bono, who won the nuisance suit in November 2011. Choosing the small claims court as a venue for this suit as they did, made the law accessible for the average person. Four years after suffering these adverse effects, this community has finally been vindicated.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR
Democracy is respecting everyoneâ€™s right to speak Opinion - Folks who write letters to the editor, regardless of the newspapers they write to, do so to express ideas and opinions about various topics of interest. Often their comments are critical, sometimes they are kudos for good works, sometimes they are simply a matter of information. Regardless of the topics, all should be written with the intention of creating debate. It is from debate that
other ideas and, hopefully, solutions to problems are solved. They should never be written to create malice or to attack oneâ€™s individual personal beliefs, etc. I respect other points of view and when others â€œhave the talking stickâ€? I not only hear what they are saying but I also listen to them saying it. That is how I learn each and everyday. If I donâ€™t learn something daily, because I believe educa-
tion is a life long activity, then I have lost out on something. I may not agree with every opinion and idea I come across, but I respect everyoneâ€™s right to say it! That is what democracy is all about and why we as a people have always stepped â€˜up to the plateâ€™ to preserve it. Given the debate that is going on between McNab-Braeside Township and the Town of Arnprior is current and not going to go away any

time soon, I encourage more letters to the editor. These issues can be resolved as part of the â€˜greyâ€™ world we live in rather than simply as a â€˜black and whiteâ€™ issue and we can contribute to help solving these problems by letting our local politicians know that we care what is going on via this medium.

Opinion - Now that the RCMP are investigating, itâ€™s pretty much guaranteed that the Senate expense scandal will have a devastating impact on the people involved. But itâ€™s Canada that has suffered the worst damage in this scandal. Thankfully itâ€™s repairable. When MPs return from their summer break, they need to take ďŹ ve basic steps to restore public conďŹ dence in Parliament. First, they need to submit themselves to the authority of the Auditor General of Canada. In 2012, after public outcry forced Parliamentarians to ďŹ nally agree to let the AG examine the operations of the House and the Senate, they sneakily handed him a blindfold before they let him on the premises. In his report, the Auditor General conceded that â€œwe did not audit the Board of Internal Economy or Members of Parliament and the work performed by Membersâ€™ employees or consultants in their Ottawa or constituency ofďŹ ces. Nor did we audit the procurement of professional services contracts awarded by individual Members.â€? Okâ€Ś well what did they audit them? The auditors reviewed just 264 of 85,000 ďŹ nancial transactions processed that year. In the wake of the expense scandal, Sena-
FUTURE SHOP CORRECTION NOTICE
tor Marjory LeBreton, on behalf of the Senate, asked the Auditor General to examine â€œevery taxpayer dollarâ€? the Senate spends. But when Liberal leader Justin Trudeau asked the House simply to approve drawing up guidelines for the Auditor General to look at MPs spending, his motion was shot down â€“ by the NDP, no less. Second, MPs and Senators need to post their expense claims and the supporting receipts online. Alberta MLAs are doing it, so are Toronto city councillors. The technology for posting documents on the internet was developed 20 years ago. Third, MPs and Senators need to make themselves subject to federal Access to Information law. Currently, Canadians canâ€™t compel federal politicians to produce ďŹ nancial documents, such as expense claims, under the Access to Information and Privacy Act. This is critical: access requests revealed former Conservative minister Bev Odaâ€™s wild spending in London, including her taxpayer-funded $16 glass of orange juice. Cabinet ministers and their expenses are subject to disclosure under the access law. MPs and Senators and their expenses are not. Perhaps thatâ€™s one reason why it took seven years for the RCMP to lay charges against former Liberal MP Joe Fontana. The Mounties are alleging that Fontana paid for his sonâ€™s wedding reception with a govern-

ment cheque. If MPs and Senators were subject to access to information laws, Joe Fontana and Mike Duffy would have been forced to answer awkward questions from reporters and opposition leaders long before the RCMP showed up. Step four, critical in a democracy: empower Canadians to recall crooked politicians, the way they can in British Columbia, and boot them from ofďŹ ce. Step ďŹ ve, cancel the pension entitlements for politicians convicted in court of stealing from the public, the way they have in Nova Scotia. Canadians shouldnâ€™t have to put up with the spectacle of former Senator Raymond Lavigne, collecting his Parliamentary pension while he sits in jail for submitting fraudulent expense claims. Conservative MP John Williamson has tabled a private memberâ€™s bill to eliminate pensions for political fraudsters. Prime Minister Harper would be well served to steal this private memberâ€™s bill and push it as a government bill. Undoubtedly, there are more than ďŹ ve things Parliament could do to ensure future scandals are kept to a minimum, but they need to start somewhere. When Parliament resumes this fall, these ďŹ ve steps should be top of the agenda. Gregory Thomas is Ontario director of the Canadian Taxpayers Federation..

A special evening with Algonquin wolves Lifestyle - With August comes a number of exciting natural phenomena. Flocks of boreal warblers flit through the trees at dawn. Shorebirds from much farther north stroll across muddy shores in search of buried meals. And in Algonquin Park wolves serenade the night with their soul stirring howls. August is one of the best months for hearing wolves. At this time of year packs take pups to beaver meadows and other sites that have open areas for playing in, water for drinking, and trees for sleeping under. The adults go off hunting and bring food back to the pups. Because adults and pups regularly reunite at these places they are called
MICHAEL RUNTZ Nature’s Way
“rendezvous sites.” Pups are extremely vocal at rendezvous sites and eagerly reply to human imitations of an adult wolf’s howls. Since 1963 Algonquin Park has exploited this behaviour by taking people to hear wolves in events known as Public Wolf Howls. The inaugural event, billed as “an evening of wolf listening,” was held August 15, 1963 and attracted more than 600 people.
Commencing in 1972, the year I began working in Algonquin as a seasonal naturalist, I participated in a great many Howls either by scouting for wolves, helping manage the huge crowd taking part, or being the Second Howler in the event (there are always two Howlers). Exactly 50 years to the day later, Algonquin Park hosted another Public Wolf Howl. This historic event drew 2,264 participants and for the first
time I took part as a member of the public. Not only was the event historic in terms of longevity but also in that Dan Strickland, former Chief Park Naturalist and sole organizer of the Howl from 1970 to 2009, took part as one of the Howlers. Ron Tozer also came out of retirement to once again be the primary Howler, a role he played on 95 previous Howls. Following an informative and entertaining presentation on Algonquin wolves by Chief Park Naturalist Rick Stronks, the cavalcade left the Pog Lake Outdoor Theatre and moved to where wolves had been located the previous night. After the cars came to a halt on both sides of Highway 60 (the line is always split in half), and their occupants stood silently outside them, Ron and Dan broke
Wolf pups readily reply to human howls. the still of the cool night air with their howls. Ron’s three single offerings failed to rouse a response. Dan joined him for a group effort but again silence was the only reply. With only
two group attempts remaining in their itinerary, the Howlers were worried. But after the second group howl, the wolves responded magnificently. The 116th Public Wolf Howl was a success. Public Wolf Howls are held in Algonquin every Thursday in August providing wolves have been located Wednesday night. I am hosting a more modest event in Algonquin’s Achray Campground on August 30 and in Bonnechere Park August 31. Even when one is in the company of countless others, the howls of wolves inspire an intimate connection with the wild. It is a connection that everyone should experience at least once in their lifetime. The Nature Number is 613387-2503; email is mruntz@ start.ca

Left untreated, later symptoms may involve the joints, heart, and central nervous system. In most cases, the infection and its symptoms are eliminated by antibiotics, especially if
the illness is treated early. Delayed or inadequate treatment can lead to more serious symptoms, which can be disabling and difficult to treat. For more information visit: http://www.health.gov.on.ca/ en/public/publications/disease/lyme.aspx
Community - Lyme disease is an infection caused by the corkscrew-shaped bacteria, Borrelia burgdorferi. In Ontario, these bacteria are spread by the bite of blacklegged ticks (formerly called deer ticks), Ixodes scapularis. The blacklegged tick can be found sporadically throughout the province. Ticks are closely related to spiders. They are typically small when unfed, (1 to 5 mm in length), and all active stages feed on blood. They cannot fly and they move quite slowly. Ticks usually come in contact with people or animals by positioning themselves on tall grass and bushes. They may take several hours to find a suitable place on the host to attach to feed. Most tick bites are painless. The majority of bites will not result in disease because most ticks are not infected with the agent of Lyme disease. Early symptoms may include fever, headache, fatigue,

and a small homemade fat-free muffin are easy to manage, even for small stomachs that are feeling queasy with stress. Before leaving home, be sure to take the traditional photograph at the front door. The idea may seem old-fashioned to you, but these annual photos will become great memories for the entire family. Create an album just for these back-to-school photos and in a few years time you’ll all have fun looking through it. When your children get home after their first
day back at school, give them a surprise, a little reward to make them feel better after what can often be a stressful day. You don’t need to spend a fortune to put smiles on their faces – serving their favourite meal or taking everybody out to a restaurant is a great way to finish off the day. Above all, this is an occasion to spend time together as a family, a moment to support each other in making the peaceful transition from the quiet of the summer to the regular school year routine.

BACK TO SCHOOL
& 2013 FALL REGISTRATION Helping with homework A few tips for parents of teenagers Lifestyle - Some experts believe it is a mistake for parents to think that their teenagers, no matter what their age, are old enough to take complete responsibility for their school obligations all by themselves. Even the most independent teenagers sometimes need to be encouraged to stay motivated. Your role as a parent is crucial during all of your childrenâ€™s school years.
Take an interest in what they do. Take the time to talk to them every day in order to know how their day went, what subjects were taught, and what they liked or disliked. Donâ€™t be afraid to ask questions, and be attentive to their answers. The goal is to let your teenagers know that you are truly interested in their lives. If their school results are not what youâ€™d
hoped for, donâ€™t go on and on about their weak points. Congratulate them on their efforts and help them find solutions to their problems. On the other hand, if they never seem to have any homework, it may be a sign that they are lacking confidence or commitment. Discuss this with them, check their agendas, and donâ€™t hesitate to contact their school for more information. Remember that while your child is living at home, you are still their parent and it is reasonable to ask for a minimal commitment from them. LEARNING
Encourage learning by creating a stimulat-
Dyscalculia: When numbers go wrong fessionals eliminate other hypotheses, such as problems with vision, hearing, or the consequences of brain trauma, for example. A neuropsychological examination is then conducted in order to assess intellectual quotient, concentration, memory and language. These procedures may seem to take a long time, but they are vital in order to avoid making a premature diagnosis, which could point doctors in the wrong direction. Children diagnosed with dyscalculia are treated by a speech therapist. The length of the treatment varies, as each case is unique, but excellent results are entirely possible. If youâ€™re concerned that your child may suffer from a math disability, talk about it with a professional who will be able to direct you towards appropriate assessments and treatments.
ing and positive atmosphere at home. Set up a work area in a quiet, well-lit room. GET ORGANIZED
Apart from providing an organized home office area, parents can also help their teenagers get organized. Skills that your children must learn include establishing good work habits, managing time, submitting work according to deadlines, balancing study time and relaxation time, and preparing for exams. You are their best ally in the acquisition of these skills. Lastly, keep a careful eye on their life habits: the good management of diet, sleep, and extracurricular activities are decisive factors in your childâ€™s educational success.

Lifestyle - Sarah doesnâ€™t like math. She has difficulty reading and writing numbers, she canâ€™t remember her multiplication tables, and the simplest calculation discourages her. When sheâ€™s asked to solve a problem, the task is laborious and she feels stupid. Sarah may suffer from a math disability: dyscalculia, or numlexia. Dyscalculia is to numbers what dyslexia is to letters. The number 243 can turn into 200403 inside the heads of children with dyscalculia. They use their fingers when asked to count, and addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division are incomprehensible. There are several outward signs of this learning disability, but they have nothing to do with intellectual disability or sensory disorders. Before diagnosing dyscalculia, health pro-

2013 FALL REGISTRATION
Changing schools smoothly
Parents have everything to gain by preparing their children emotionally for a move.
How to live with your teenâ€™s look Lifestyle - The start of a new school year is usually a time to renew the kidsâ€™ wardrobes. When children are little this can be a lot of fun, but once theyâ€™re into the teenage years itâ€™s much more difficult to find clothes that will please them as much as the parents. Itâ€™s around this age that shopping can start being a real headache for both parties. Yet itâ€™s normal for teenagers to want to express their personality through their style of clothing. Some want to stand out from the crowd, while others prefer to conform to a certain popular fashion or to a style shared by their friends. This can be tricky when an extravagant style doesnâ€™t meet with parental approval. To keep the peace and prevent any conflicts from arising during a shopping outing, take some time to discuss your familyâ€™s style parameters be-
fore setting out. Try to stay open to new fashion trends and, above all, stay cool. After all, the more you insist, the more your children will protest. Opt instead for a compromise, either by suggesting accessories in the style they love or by offering them set times when they can flaunt their latest look. If that doesnâ€™t work, consider giving them a bit of leeway. After all, is it really that bad if your teenager wears pants that seem way too big, or if the top and bottom of an outfit donâ€™t really match? Be careful that you donâ€™t spend your money on styles that contravene the ethics or dress code of your teenagerâ€™s school. Explain your concerns about wasting money and leave the door open for other compromises. After all, whoâ€™s never upset their parents with some unconventional clothing?
Lifestyle - Having to move house can be a major source of stress for children. When a change of school is also involved, the emotional impact can be huge. Children need the support of their parents in order for this transition to go as smoothly as possible. Just because they are young doesnâ€™t mean that children can adapt easily to upheaval in their lives. Just as adults do, kids need time to get used to change. The stress of a transition might manifest itself as sudden mood swings, nightmares, or minor physical discomfort. Even insomnia can make an appearance. To prevent some of these reactions, parents have everything to gain by preparing their children for a move. The best kind of start is to put all your cards on the table and explain frankly to children why they have to move and what it will involve.
After this, parents must listen carefully as they give children time to verbalize their worries. It is important that children feel comfortable expressing what they are feeling. For the transition to go smoothly, it is essential that parents supply points of reference for their children. Taking the time to visit new classrooms, meet the teachers, and see other students will help them develop more confidence. On the way home, a conversation about the positive aspects of the visit will help other fears to dissipate. Of course, parents should not expect that all their childrenâ€™s misgivings will disappear like magic. But by being calm and patient, parents can make their children feel secure enough that the transition to a new school and neighbourhood can go smoothly.
Internet safety for children Lifestyle - The start of a new school year is always a good opportunity to remind children about a few safety rules: donâ€™t talk to strangers, cross the road at intersections and stay on the sidewalks. However, in this era of the Internet, another important element should never be forgotten: Internet safety. First of all, children should never use a nickname that reveals their age. They should never, ever accept an invitation from someone who asks them not to talk about it to other people. Parents must also make their children aware of the consequences of one of the most dangerous activities on the Web â€“ the posting of sexy or suggestive photos. Once on the Internet, these images can circulate nonstop, long into the future. This issue has caused plenty of grief for many a young
woman. Parents must discuss with their children the risks and the traps to avoid. Sitting in front of a computer screen seems to protect and isolate us, but the Internet is a window into the world at large. The golden rule is to never do on the Web what you wouldnâ€™t dare do on the street. Because of this, careful supervision is vital. In fact, it is recommended to set up the computer in a communal area of the home so that parents can keep an attentive eye on the use their children make of it. If parents believe that their child is the victim of entrapment or bullying, they should be aware that they do have recourse against this type of criminal activity. Record and print any conversations and contact your local police immediately. R0012263455

2013 FALL REGISTRATION Let’s all unite to end bullying Help rejected kids
Lifestyle - Children who are being rejected by their peers are going through a terrible ordeal. Isolated, insulted and ostracized, they often suffer in silence, and the consequences can be dramatic. Being different in some way is sometimes the cause behind this rejection. Shyness, a tic, speech difﬁculties, obesity, or even braces can be enough to set in motion the process. Sometimes, all it takes is for children to ignore being made fun of for the rejection to start. And yet, some children who stutter or who are obese will never experience rejection. Children are best prepared by receiving help in developing a certain amount of independence and social skills, which allow them to cope with their differences. Parents who help their children from a young age to develop social skills are preparing them to be better able to defend themselves without resorting to violence (but rather through discussion or humour, for example). This also helps them to build their self-conﬁdence. Parents should listen to how their children have suffered and, above all, take them seriously. The next step is to tell their teachers; school staff may be able to correct the situation through a class discussion where everyone can express themselves without fear of being judged. It is vital to encourage rejected children to talk about their experience in order for them to escape their isolation.
TYPES OF BULLYING
and panic attacks. Bullying can even lead to academic problems, including dropping out of school. In a few cases – and only one case is too many – the pain caused by bullying can cause the victim to consider committing suicide. No one should have to feel wounded or humiliated or live in fear or isolation. Let’s all unite to eradicate bullying. Are you, or one of your friends, a victim of bullying? Is your child a victim, or perhaps even the bully? Several resources are available to you, including Kids Help Phone at 1-800-668-6868 or www.kidshelpphone.ca.

Lifestyle - Watching children leave home for their very ﬁrst day of school is always an emotional time for parents. After a last goodbye, many mums and dads will spill tears of joy and pride, but sometimes those tears can be caused by anguish and worry. Leaving children in the hands of strangers is never easy. Parents must prepare themselves in advance so they can keep their composure during this big day in the lives of their children. It is helpful to establish the new routine several days before school starts. Set the alarm clock to wake up at a reasonable hour and take the time to eat breakfast with your children. Practise taking the route to school. In other words, if you get your children used to the new routine, you will probably feel reassured as well. I the last days before school starts, and after offering all the support you can give to your children, give yourself some time to catch your breath. You deserve a break after all the back-to-school rushing around. Relax in a candle-lit bubble bath, go for a walk or distract yourself with a good book. Acknowledge your feelings without any judgment, and just try to enjoy yourself. It is OK to feel nervous, but do try to avoid becoming overwhelmed by anxiety. This would be upsetting to your children. Little boys and girls are very perceptive. By showing that they are in control of the situation, parents will help their children feel safe and self-conﬁdent. The ﬁrst day of school is certainly a very special time, but it is a normal step in the life of any child. So relax, keep smiling, and above all, be positive.

Just as there are many forms of bullying, there are also many devastating effects. Victims can experience an inordinate amount of insecurity, distress, withdrawal, isolation, fear, stress, anxiety, loss of self-conﬁdence, and nightmares.

As your child’s first ever day at school approaches, try not to be overwhelmed by anxiety.
Victim or witness: now’s the time to act.
Lifestyle - According to the Canadian Institutes of Health Research, at least one Canadian teenager out of three can tell stories about what it’s like to be a victim of bullying at school. Other Canadian studies show that bullying occurs every seven minutes in the playground and every 25 minutes in the classroom. Do these statistics shock you? Whether you’re a student, parent, or educator, you have a role to play in putting an end to bullying.
Bullying is not only about pushing people around or calling them names. There are in fact four principal types of bullying, and being able to identify them is a ﬁrst step in the ﬁght to eradicate this scourge. Verbal bullying includes insults, sarcasms, teasing, the spreading of rumours, threats, inappropriate sexual comments, and slurs about culture, race, religion, gender, or sexual-orientation. Social bullying includes group threats, making a scapegoat of someone, exclusion, public humiliation, and demeaning grafﬁti. Physical bullying includes hitting, pushing, pinching, hounding, jostling, stealing or destroying possessions, and sexual touching of an undesirable nature. Cyberbullying includes using the Internet or text messaging to bully, humiliate, make fun of, or circulate rumours about someone.

You could also buy some items, such as pencils, pads of paper and exercise books, in larger quantities.

OVTA cites local beaches in effort to draw tourists to Valley News â€“ The beaches at Robert Simpson Park and Burnstown are two of ďŹ ve Ottawa Valley beaches being put in the spotlight in an effort by the Ottawa Valley Tourist Association (OVTA) to attract tourists to the area. â€œSummer just isnâ€™t summer without a visit to the beach â€Ś sand castles, picnics, sunbathers catching some rays and clean cool water inviting you dive right in,â€? says an OVTA news release. â€œLuckily, for those living in or visiting the Ottawa Valley, there are plenty of beaches to choose from.â€?
