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.

White Pine sprouts this weekend Sherry Haaima sherry.haaima@metroland.com

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. Just 2 Guys will be replaced with Renfrew-based Fifth Street at 2 p.m. Admission to the festival is free. Visit www. arnpriorwhitepinefestival.ca.

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 derek.dunn@metroland.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.

I’ll ask this community to stand together and defy this Goliath at all costs.� 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. “Today, it is only a small part of what was, but it’s life and death for small communities,� said McCrank in his Aug. 13 statement. “We’re just one little place in Quebec, but there’s places out West and down East who have lost their communities because they’ve lost their rail. “Businesses, and large businesses, will not survive long-term unless they have affordable transportation to get to their markets. R0012265334_0822

“We 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 they’re good at it. What they’re doing is they’re killing communities. If we, as Quebecers and Canadians, allow them to kill our communities, we’re not going to have much left in 20 years.� Referring to local paper mills, hotels and other business, McCrank added: “CN was built by our commu-

Meanwhile, McCrank says TPR has worked “tirelessly to come up with solutions,â€? but without much success because of CN’s inflexibility. Canadian National doesn’t see it that way. In fact, CN’s repurchase of lines from Quebec Railway (of which Ottawa Central Rail was part) in 2008 included CN’s assumption of certain debt and liability as well as a cash exchange based on the line equipment’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 CN’s unwillingness to confirm availability of the rail line for future business use. “There are quite a few interested parties (businesses),â€? said Bertrand, including among them the current Trebio wood pellets firm

Enough is enough. That’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 MRC’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 — 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. “We’ve worked the last three years to try to keep the (local) rail line in operation ‌ Unfortunately, those efforts have not been successful,â€? said Feeny. One of TPR’s spokespeople, Louise Donaldson, said, “The 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.� 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: “You call that an economic ghostbuster.�

Permit needed before construction can begin

Come visit our new website @ insideottawavalley.com

Patricia Leboeuf pleboeuf@metroland.com

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. “The key point is that we are now able to stop (the work) in the way of an order,� said CAO Michael Wildman.� We are now able to order certain remedies and in failure to comply we are actually able to do the work ourselves.� 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. “They did not enter requisite agreements with the town,� said Wildman. “They did not post securities, nor did they post insurances to protect the town.� The developer chose to forge ahead because there were significant delays at the MOE level. “It takes an awful long time to get approvals out of the ministry and out of frustration this happens from time to time,� said Wildman.

“In the absence of a bylaw, it’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.� 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. “Because the town is not able to inspect the works we cannot guarantee that these works constructed to our standards,� said Wildman. “Had there been damage to property or work related, the town would not have been protected because of the absence of the (necessary) documents.� 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. “We’ll do it in stages,� said Wildman. “We’ll try to be reasonable. If we don’t have the comfort that we feel we need. Then we’ll go to the next level and escalate accordingly.� 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.

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 derek.dunn@metroland.com

EMC news â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The federal government continues to trumpet Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;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&#x20AC;&#x2122;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&#x20AC;&#x2122;s potential and reputation are falling when it comes to societal issues like inequality and poverty. It gave Canada a â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Bâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 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&#x20AC;&#x201C; got a â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Dâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; ranking. Inequality â&#x20AC;&#x201C; both income and gender - was the primary reason for Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;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&#x20AC;&#x2122;s author, Brenda Lafleur, is concerned about inequality in education most of all. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Better education is a powerful way to achieve growth that benefits all,â&#x20AC;? Lafleur said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is very hard for the child of poor parents to do well (if costs continue to escalate).â&#x20AC;? 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&#x20AC;&#x2122;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&#x20AC;&#x153;If the bottom 90 per cent are not sharing in prosperity, then you have reached a crisis,â&#x20AC;? Macdonald said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You begin to ask if the sys-

tem is fair. That idea that if you work hard, can you still get ahead?â&#x20AC;? He said the top one per cent in Ottawa made an average $237,000 in 1982. Today itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;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&#x20AC;&#x2122;s when the middle class was strongest. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They can afford to give a little more,â&#x20AC;? he said. Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;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&#x20AC;&#x153;This new data shows how extreme income inequality has become in places like Calgary,â&#x20AC;? Macdonald said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It also reveals for the first time how the bottom 90 per cent of those in Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s biggest cities of Toronto, Vancouver, and Montreal actually make less today than they did in 1982.â&#x20AC;?

EDITORIAL

Be loud, be proud

C

apital Pride has returned to Ottawa, starting last weekend and continuing to Aug. 25. The theme for this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s festival is Be Loud, Be Proud. This is a message that all Canadians can take to heart, to celebrate our nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s acceptance of all citizens regardless of their race, language, religion or sexual identity. These are basic human rights entrenched in Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Charter, despite lingering opposition from fringe groups. Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;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&#x20AC;&#x153;propagandize.â&#x20AC;? The move was criticized by John Baird, Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s foreign affairs minister, who said the Russian ministerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s statements were â&#x20AC;&#x153;an incitement to intolerance which breeds hate.â&#x20AC;? But Bairdâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s comments immediately drew fire from Real Women of Canada.

The conservative womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s group said Bairdâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s comments stepped on the toes of another countryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sovereignty, family and religious values. Defending a countryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;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&#x20AC;&#x2122;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&#x20AC;&#x153;I 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&#x20AC;? 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&#x20AC;&#x2122;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&#x20AC;&#x2122; support of Deputy Judge Sauriolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;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&#x20AC;&#x2122; 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&#x20AC;&#x153;This means that the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;public utilityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; of Millerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s work does not trump the peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;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&#x20AC;? Clearly the law says that polluters donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;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.

Opinion - Now that the RCMP are investigating, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pretty much guaranteed that the Senate expense scandal will have a devastating impact on the people involved. But itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Canada that has suffered the worst damage in this scandal. Thankfully itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;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&#x20AC;&#x153;we did not audit the Board of Internal Economy or Members of Parliament and the work performed by Membersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; 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&#x20AC;? Okâ&#x20AC;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-

tor Marjory LeBreton, on behalf of the Senate, asked the Auditor General to examine â&#x20AC;&#x153;every taxpayer dollarâ&#x20AC;? 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&#x20AC;&#x201C; 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&#x20AC;&#x2122;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&#x20AC;&#x2122;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&#x20AC;&#x2122;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&#x20AC;&#x2122;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&#x20AC;&#x2122;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&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bill to eliminate pensions for political fraudsters. Prime Minister Harper would be well served to steal this private memberâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;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

Beware the Lyme diseasecausing blacklegged tick

Don Sullivan and Hannah O’Connell advise that, having been granted a place in Dalhousie Law School to advance her legal studies, Hannah will be moving to Halifax this week. Her work in the firm therefore changes to part-time for a while. Don will carry on. Her roots and commitment in the community being now so deep, Hannah makes one further pledge: once a full fledged barrister-at-law. In the words of a once-famous American general ‘I SHALL RETURN!’

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. depression, and a characteristic circular skin rash called erythema migrans (EM). 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,

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&#x20AC;&#x2122;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&#x20AC;&#x2122;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&#x20AC;&#x2122;d

hoped for, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;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&#x20AC;&#x2122;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&#x20AC;&#x2122;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&#x20AC;&#x2122;s educational success.

Lifestyle - Sarah doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like math. She has difficulty reading and writing numbers, she canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t remember her multiplication tables, and the simplest calculation discourages her. When sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;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-

Changing schools smoothly

Parents have everything to gain by preparing their children emotionally for a move.

SUBMITTED

How to live with your teenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s look Lifestyle - The start of a new school year is usually a time to renew the kidsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; wardrobes. When children are little this can be a lot of fun, but once theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re into the teenage years itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s much more difficult to find clothes that will please them as much as the parents. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s around this age that shopping can start being a real headache for both parties. Yet itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;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&#x20AC;&#x2122;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&#x20AC;&#x2122;s style parameters be-

ÂŽ

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&#x20AC;&#x2122;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&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really match? Be careful that you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t spend your money on styles that contravene the ethics or dress code of your teenagerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s school. Explain your concerns about wasting money and leave the door open for other compromises. After all, whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;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&#x20AC;&#x2122;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&#x20AC;&#x2122;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&#x20AC;&#x2122;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&#x20AC;&#x201C; 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&#x20AC;&#x2122;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.

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 should never skimp when food safety is at stake. Your choice of a thermal container is crucial for your childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s health. The temperature of a hot meal should always stay above 60C, so it is recommended to use a thermal container made of stainless steel with double wall vacuum insulation.

Year gave some hope during the Dirty Thirties Mary Cook’s Memories MARY COOK

Lifestyle - It seemed to me we lived in a constant state of anxiousness. Mother and Father so often wore worried looks that sent a pall over the entire household. The egg money in the blue sugar bowl never seemed to be enough to cover our needs. Frivolity, like a few slices of bologna from Briscoe’s General Store, or a package of Cracker Jacks after our Saturday peddling of Mother’s wares in Renfrew, was out of the question. And then, one summer, everything changed. It was almost like someone had lifted a roller blind in a darkened room, letting in sunshine. And it didn’t happened suddenly, but it came as the summer wore on. The season started out like any other. Father planted the fields, Mother raised hens from chickens, packets of seeds arrived in the mail and were planted.

But that year, as Spring rolled into Summer, I knew in my heart, that year things were going to be different. For one thing, there were no frosty days or nights to kill what had been planted. But one season blended into the other, as if by some magic plan, there was nothing to halt the natural growth in the fields and in the ample garden. And that year there were no heavy rains to flood the seedlings, or leave big pools of water in the low lying fields. The rain came as often as was needed. Soft wonderful rain, and often, as if led by some outside hand, during the warm nights, so that Father was able to spend the days tending to the crops. The rain barrels, empty at night, sitting at the corners of the back of the old log house, would be filled in the mornings from the runoff of the eaves as we slept in our beds. Wonderful soft rain water which Mother put to good use. And that year there was no drought. Gone were the cracks in the soil at our back stoop that in other years we saw after weeks of a dry spell. Parched ground, crumbling under our bare feet, and burning the soles. That year, when everything seemed to change, the ground was moist to the touch. And I would see Father walk the back fields. After the morning chores, and often after supper, he would go over to the West Hill,

cross the Bonnechere and look...just look...and he would come back to the house, and I could see a spring in his step that in other years was so often missing. Sometimes I would go with him. Father, not one to talk idly, we would walk in silence. And I would watch him stop at the alfalfa field, and pull at a few stacks, and rub them between the palms of his hands. The Buckwheat field, the last to be planted, was already starting to turn to a golden brown. To me it looked like a large velvet carpet. I was too young to know why we planted certain grains or crops, but I knew, if they thrived, we would be saved for another year on the farm in Northcote. I was old enough to know that. The hay was being cut, and stalks dotting the fields, and many loads had already been taken to the barn and hoisted up into the loft. Unlike some of the farmer’s hay fields in Northcote, there were no fancy bales in our fields, just hand-piled hay, gathered with a pitchfork. The smell of the newly mowed hay filled my nostrils, and I often went into the barn and climbed the little ladder just to look at the hay mound, and I would be filled with contentment, knowing our livestock would be well fed over the coming winter. Our barn yard held fat cows, sheep shorn of their wool, pigs contentedly rolling in the dirt. And I knew our smoke house would be filled to take us through the long winter months ahead. Mother’s garden that year, seemed to be

spared the onslaught of crows and wild animals that often had their fill of the vegetables she had planted. For reasons unknown, our garden overflowed with produce...much to be peddled in Renfrew, and much to be canned in glass sealers to give us an ample table over the winter. And that year, the lone apple tree behind our house, had sprouted a wild crop, and already we had our fill of pies, crisps, and apple sauce. Already, the shelves in the crawl space under the house that served as a root cellar and a place to store Mother’s preserves and pickles were filled with jars of raspberries and chokecherry jam. And so that year, the pall of anxiety that usually filled our house, was gone. We sang joyously at night before we went to bed with Mother on her mouth organ. Father still fell asleep in the rocking chair with the Family Herald and Weekly Star spread out on his knee, but I thought the lines in his face were lessened...still bone-tired was he, but with a look of contentment on his sleeping face.It was the only year I remember when the Depression wasn’t choking the blood out of our veins. All around us was the miracle of life. It would be replaced, as sure as death and taxes, the next year with the struggle for survival that marked that time in life, when every day was a challenge. But that year alone, there was hope that we would last to see another year of that era... known as the Dirty Thirties.

Bluesfest hits Peaks in Calabogie Lucy Hass lucy.hass@metroland.com

Canadian blues superstar Colin James celebrated his birthday with a sea of fans Saturday night. The third annual Class Axe Guitars Blues and Ribfest at Calabogie Peaks set another attendance record with estimated attendance of 19,000 – up significantly from 14,000 last summer. “The parking lots overflowed, so we used the golf course to park – worked great,” said Peaks owner Paul Murphy. The weather was great and the chairlift and beach were big hits this year, he noted, adding that five ribbers put on a great show and fed the crowd. Murphy said blues legend Johnny Winter was a big hit Friday night, and lead act Colin James drew the biggest crowd - more than 10,000 people Saturday afternoon and evening. Greater Madawaska Mayor Peter Emon was impressed. “The Class Axe Guitars Calabogie Blues and Ribfest is a tremendous contributor to the economic fabric and wellness of our community,” he said. Studies show visitors coming to the County of Renfrew, and by extension when visiting Greater Madawaska, will spend on average approximately $160 per person. “We are excited by the venue, the music and the whole event as we are able to confidently predict when the analysis is complete it will show the number of visitors to Calabogie will exceed 20,000,” said Emon. “In speaking with the businesses in Calabogie they are all excited about the numbers of people visiting this weekend and are confident people will visit again once they have

This weekend was a great family event which was the product of the sponsorship and the vision of Dawg FM, Calabogie Peaks and Class Axe Guitars. It is also the result of the efforts and enthusiasm of the volunteers and employees. “We are also fortunate to have the financial support of the Province of Ontario,” said

Emon. The proud mayor described the festival as an excellent means of continually demonstrating what a great place Calabogie, and rural Ontario, is to live in and to visit. “The lineup was great and Colin James was a special show and I hope he makes Calabogie a regular stop,” Emon said.

Highland dancers spin into town this Sunday Community - The Caitlin Stewart Memorial Highland Dancing Competition will draw more than 80 dancers to Arnprior. This Sunday, Aug. 25, the Arnprior Highland Dancing Association presents the fourteenth annual Caitlin Stewart Memorial Highland Dancing Competition. More than 80 dancers are expected to participate, coming from as far as Toronto, Sudbury and Quebec areas. The competition will be held at the scenic Robert Simpson Park, where a stage will be set up next to the band stand. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the best location in the Ottawa Valley,â&#x20AC;? says organizer Renee Stewart. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It certainly has the best Ottawa River view.â&#x20AC;?

The competition is held each year in memory of Stewartâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s daughter, Caitlin who passed away after a car accident Nov. 2, 1998. The competition starts at 8:30 a.m. and will run until 3 or 4 p.m. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everyone is invited down to the park for a wonderful day of dancing and listening to bag pipes. The dancers enjoy an enthusiastic crowd to bring out the best performance from the dancers,â&#x20AC;? said Stewart. Bring a lawn chair and sun screen. Admission is free but a donation to Caitlinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Scholarship would be appreciated. There will be an onsite canteen, complete with hamburgers from M and M Meats. Stewart encourages members of the public

to drop in and check out the dancing and the music. The dancers are colourfully dressed in the kilts and national costumes, she explains. The dancers will be accompanied by accomplished bag pipers. Each dancer will be doing four dances and at the end of the day the premier dancers will be performing their own version of the Cake Walk. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is so exciting to watch pairs of dancers, who will have their own interpretation of the dance. The lassies have lots of fun and the crowd likes to start clapping with the dancers,â&#x20AC;? said Stewart. The competition could not be held without

the community sponsorship. Ontario Hydro is a long time supporter. Stewart expresses heartfelt thanks for all the community supporters. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We also have a wonderful group of volunteers. These volunteers ensure the competition continues to run successfully every year,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Many parents and former highland dancers keep coming back to keep this wonderful competition running in Caitlinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s name. Thanks for keeping my daughter alive in my heart. Big hug to Jan and Molly, my co organizer for their hours of hard work-you two are the best!â&#x20AC;? Come one and come all and sit back to enjoy a wonderful day with the dancers. For more information call Renee Stewart at 613-6234283.

As of last Saturday, they still had three pontoons in stock. They also want boat owners to know that, keeping with their efforts to streamline processes since taking over the business, they have made winterization rates all-inclusive.

Owner goes to extreme measures to find lost dogs Derek Dunn derek.dunn@metroland.com

News - One dog lover is going to great lengths to find her long lost companions. Amy Robillard was at home in Fitzroy Harbour with her father and two “puggles,” a mix of pug and beagle on June 22. The tan and black, short-legged, long-backed buddies wanted out to do their business at the usual time, about 8 p.m. While Jackson, 6, a male, and Bailey, 3, a female, sometimes go off exploring the ravine near the water for a time, SUBMITTED they usually return quite quickly. However, on this SaturAmong the West Carleton dogs missing over the last few months are day evening the rain may have washed away scents that these two from Fitzroy Harbour. Although some suspect dognappings would have guided them back home. Adding to the series to feed a dogfighting ring, police say they aren’t investigating the pos- of factors culminating against the dogs was the fact they sibility. weren’t wearing collars.

Guilt for not putting on their collars brings tears to Robillard’s eyes. Her and fiance Brent LaBrie built their relationship, in part, on raising the dogs for the last three years. “They are like our family,” she said. “They are like our kids.” Which is why she continues to hold out hope almost two months later that her friends will be found safe and sound. Robillard is offering a $1,000 reward for Jackson and Bailey’s return. Another 1,000 posters appear in all points of West Carleton and beyond. She’s knocked on countless doors, and keeps tabs on various internet sites such as helpinglostpets.com and Facebook’s Ottawa and Valley Lost Pet Network. She marvels that dog lovers stick together, with complete strangers doing all they can to help. She has followed up on numerous tips. “I’ve pretty much found everybody else’s dogs,” she said. While the drive to and from tipster’s has been emotional, she welcomes more. “It’s definitely tough, but you have to do it anyway,” she said. “The possibility it could be them is there.” dogfighting ring? If the dogs are still alive, it is highly likely they are with someone who believes they were abandoned. They might not know that Jackson is microchipped. However, Ottawa police and Renfrew OPP say there is no secret dogfighting ring in the area, despite numerous rumours to the contrary. Some in West Carleton say a rash of dognappings - particularly of small dogs - has taken place, leading them to the conclusion that their dogs have been used as bait. There is a possibility that the dogs are in the Carp area. Robillard has heard that a woman walks two puggles at the fair grounds. She has yet to connect with the woman, but hopes to soon. Even if this latest tip doesn’t pan out, Robillard won’t be deterred. “They are together and alive.” Anyone with information can reach Robillard at 613203-4487.

The specific goals have been identified in each of the three areas that are meaningful and measurable,” their report said. FIVE MODELS

Five logic models were developed that focus on identification of service gaps and needs; safety for children and adults needing protection; service user participation in planning and evaluation; service to children and adults with intellectual disabilities; and strength-based service model. The report also noted the community engagement committee is moving forward with identifying strategies “to further our relationships with the community, regional and provincial partners in order to meet the needs of the families, children and adults in a better way.” The human resources and wellness committee has initiated consultations and developed steps to address the health and wellness of staff.

“The creation of a corporate department will enhance ability of HR responsibilities to be more strategic, planned and consistent in supporting staff from orientation, coaching, mentoring, professional development, succession planning and recognizing achievement,” the report said. Renfrew County FACS has also been selected as early adopters for CPIN (Child Protection Information Network) and work is being completed with its data systems in order to manage the transition successfully. “The move to the new provincial system is expected in February 2014,” the report said. WORK ONGOING

“The work is ongoing and will continue throughout the year; our IT, QA, finance and service departments have participated in initial training and will continue preparing for this transition.” The new funding model for child welfare has been implemented and provides a challenge to continue provision of services in the traditional way. As a result, review and enhancement of the service model and philosophy and organizational structure is required. In addition to internal reviews and efficiency assessments, the organization is hoping to enhance its external image and are in the process of selecting a new logo and rebranding its communication tools. Provincially, all services are undergoing transformation and a new paradigm shift is emerging which involves creating solutions across ser-

vice/organizational boundaries, consideration for shared services and innovative multisector approaches. “In the past year, we moved our organization forward, and made changes in our service focus and delivery that we hope resulted in positive outcomes for children, families and adults,” says the report. “Much has been done, but the work is just a beginning, and there is more to be accomplished in the next year. “We wish to recognize the exceptional work, commitment, motivation and creativity that have been given by staff, the board, foster parents and volunteers. “Without each and every one working collaboratively, we would not be able to provide the service to our community as successfully. Our sincere appreciation for all that you do,” the report said. Greetings were extended by Ministry of Community and Social Services/Ministry of Children and Youth Services Eastern Region program supervisor Rick McInnes; Ministry of the Attorney General program manager, supervised access program, Judy Newman; MPP constituency assistant Laura Lapinskie; and Renfrew County Warden Peter Emon. Millennium Fund scholarships were presented to four recipients Martika B, Rodney C., Andrew H. and Rebecca L. There was also acknowledgement of Clark Bursary winner Jessica R. (last names withheld became of privacy issues). Entertainment was provided by Grace, Jesse and David who played guitar, violin and harmonica.

Milking our heritage The McDougall Mill Museum in Renfrew hosted an all-about-milk-production event on Aug. 17. It was meant to celebrate the county’s impressive dairy heritage. The old-time dairy farm exhibition at O’Brien Park was an interactive affair, with folks encouraged to shake bottles of liquid until they magically turned into butter; then to taste with bread. Summer student Paula Campbell shows the many mechanical ways cream is transformed into butter during the turn of the last century. In some ways they are yesterday’s exercise machines. She explained that each was touted as less labour intensive then early technologies. But there was still considerable work involved compared to selecting a bar from the grocery store fridge.

Hy-Liners perform at Carleton Place Manor Community - The linedance program at the Nick Smith Centre in Arnprior has continued running from mid-June to mid-August this year, with the wrap-up date held Aug. 19. Instructor Hyacinth Chatterton delivers programs in fall, winter and spring in Almonte, Pakenham and at the NSC for the Town of Arnprior. This was the first summer program organized and Chatterton said she is pleased with the participation and progress throughout this eight-week series. Approximately 20 linedancers attended on a regular or a drop-in basis each Monday from 1:30-3 p.m., and everyone enjoyed the approach of being introduced to new beginner dances each class. In addition, there was always time to review the dances already well-established in their repertoire. This summer’s dancers represented the following areas: Almonte, Arnprior, Braeside, Carleton Place, Carp, Galetta, Kinburn, Pakenham, Renfrew and White Lake. The group, known as the Hy-Liners, is often invited to entertain at hospitals, seniors’ residences and other establishments, and this summer was no exception. They danced on Friday Aug. 16 at the Carleton Place Manor on Arthur Street, and their 50-minute performance included a special dance in which residents and staff at the Manor enthusiastically participated. After dancing, the Hy-Liners had a welcome chance to meet and greet the residents and their care-givers. Then it was off to a barbecue on the Mississippi Lake at one of the dancer’s

summer residence. Fall programs for all three recreation departments will start the week beginning on Oct. 7, said Chatterton, and continue through to the week of Dec. 9. The different groups get together for performances, and are already booked for Christmas entertainment in mid-December-2013 at one of the area’s hospitals and its adjoining residence. For the fall programs, Chatterton announced there will be a special emphasis on inviting dancers to join in groups - for example if church groups, choirs, sports groups, bridge-players, business personnel, school staff, etc., participated with other members of their particular group, they would end up with an added area of enjoyment and possible performances given at their own sites, by their own groups. Additionally, Chatterton will be available to assist on-site whenever requested. She has done so, on several occasions, with Irish linedancing at a United Church’s benefit events. This dance-form is an activity for all ages, both genders, and all levels; in addition, the dances that are covered offer quite a variety of different forms such as western-swing, waltzes, jive, fox-trot, country, and many others. All prospective participants who are interested in adding some extra ‘good-for-you’ fun to their current exercise routines, are invited to contact the Mississippi Mills’ recreation department at 613-256-1077, or Arnprior’s Nick Smith Centre at 613-623-7301.

Blame prevents victims from seeking support One in five Canadians believe women encourage sexual assault when theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re drunk: study Jessica Cunha jessica.cunha@metroland.com

News - One in five Canadians think a woman can encourage sexual assault when sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s drunk, according to a study released by the Canadian Womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Foundation. Cathy Lawery, program manager for the violence against women program at the Western Ottawa Community Resource Centre, said this type of victim blaming isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a new concept, but the results are discouraging. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sure, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m disappointed those numbers are so high,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not shocked by it though.â&#x20AC;? The resource centre, serving the communities of Kanata, Nepean, Goulbourn and West Carleton, helped 163 women between April 1 and June 30 through its violence against women program. Thirty-five of the women (21 per cent) reported they were victims of sexual assault, said Lawery.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Of those women who come forward wanting to talk about the violence they experience, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m confident that a lot of women havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t disclosed the sexual violence they have experienced,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think the numbers are even higher than that, but thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been disclosed.â&#x20AC;? Lawery, who spent 15 years as a counsellor, said women can come back from a sexual assault but the level of healing depends on the first response care that survivors receive. â&#x20AC;&#x153;One of the feelings that the women come in with is this whole idea of immense shame and guilt,â&#x20AC;? said Lawery. â&#x20AC;&#x153;One of the things that resonated with me early on in my career was how the first response was. How did friends and family respond?â&#x20AC;? If a woman discloses she was sexually assaulted, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s imperative she is believed, said Lawery. When met with negative reactions, such as asking what she was wearing

or doing or saying, it can stall the healing process and prevent a woman from seeking support. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The hurt and pain was as damaging, in some cases more so, than the actual assault,â&#x20AC;? she said. Concillia Muonde, public education co-ordinator and support worker with the Sexual Assault Support Centre of Ottawa, said itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s essential to tell a woman that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not her fault â&#x20AC;&#x201C; in those words. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If the general population believes that youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve brought it on yourself, (the victims) believe that. It prevents a woman from seeking support; often they canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t talk about it because they fear being judged,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It makes a difference when you let them know itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not their fault. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s avoiding questions that imply it was their fault.â&#x20AC;? Instead of focusing on what the survivor was doing or wearing at the time of the assault, ask instead: How can I support you? Is there anything I can do to support you? What would be helpful for you right now? said Muonde. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s those reassuring words that break the barrier,â&#x20AC;? she

said. Sexual assault includes any unwanted touching of a sexual nature, from kissing to fondling to rape. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to be touched by someone, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a crime, including kissing and fondling,â&#x20AC;? said Lawery. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We often hear that the main argument was â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;She said it was OK, she was a willing participant.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Consent canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be given if a person is threatening a person. Consent canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be given if a woman is under the influence of alcohol or drugs. You absolutely canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t give consent when sleeping or unconscious.â&#x20AC;? The resource centre offers a host of services through its violence against women program. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re here to provide resources to the women who come in,â&#x20AC;? said Lawery. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think a lot of people donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t come forward because they believe their power to make decisions will be taken away from them. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not what we do here. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re here to provide them with options and resources so they can make an informed decision.â&#x20AC;? If a woman wants to report an assault, counsellors can help. If she just wants to talk, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s OK too, said Lawery. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Some women want to report it to police, and many more donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to â&#x20AC;&#x201C; thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s OK, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s their decision,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s decision to make.â&#x20AC;?

One of the feelings that the women come in with is this whole idea of immense shame and guilt CATHY LAWERY

itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a womanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fault. The online survey was conducted among randomly selected Canadian adults who are Angus Reid Forum panelists. The poll asked both men and women, from ages 18 to over 55, from every region of the country, all economic backgrounds and levels of education, whether a women could provoke or encourage sexual assault in six situations: when sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s drunk, if she invites a man into her home, when she flirts with a man, if sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wearing a short skirt, when sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s walking home alone at night by herself, or in none of those situations. Seventy per cent of respondents chose the last option. â&#x20AC;&#x153;While we expected to have some Canadians hold these beliefs, we were shocked to see how high the percentage was, especially among young people age 18 to 34,â&#x20AC;? said Sandra Diaz, vice president of marketing and communication with the Canadian Womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Foundation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That (people) believe a woman would be responsible for her sexual assault is quite shocking for us.â&#x20AC;? According to the study: * Sixteen per cent of Canadians believe a woman can encourage or provoke sexual assault by inviting a man into her home (20 per cent ages 18-34). * Fifteen per cent think

women can encourage or provoke sexual assault by flirting with a man (20 per cent for ages 18-34). * Eleven per cent answered that women can encourage or provoke sexual assault when they wear short skirts (17 per cent for ages 18-34). â&#x20AC;&#x153;When women believe that they are being blamed or have done something to contribute to a sexual assault, they are less likely to come forward,â&#x20AC;? said Diaz. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They worry that they are not going to be believed or they believe they are going to be blamed and shamed.â&#x20AC;? When people hear of a sexual assault, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Often the first things people ask is â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;How did she get herself into that situation?â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? said Diaz. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The question we should be asking (is) â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Why do some men think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s OK to assault women?â&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x153;Rape doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t happen to women just because sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wearing a short skirt or sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been drinking. By implying that a woman only dress a certain way doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mean sexual assault will end.â&#x20AC;? Diaz said the findings and attitudes should be â&#x20AC;&#x153;deeply insultingâ&#x20AC;? to men because they imply that men canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t control their base urges. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We would love (women) to know that thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nothing she could wear or drink or say or do that would ever justify her being a victim of violence. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really very, very important,â&#x20AC;? she added. As a country, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve seen a â&#x20AC;&#x153;massive shiftâ&#x20AC;? when it comes to driving under the influence, said Diaz. Now itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time to start creating an attitude change towards survivors of sexual assault. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ending sexual assault will only happen when weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re having honest conversations ... about how rape is never OK and understanding what consent is.â&#x20AC;?

Canadian Womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Foundation helps women recover, rebuild News - In 2013, it is shocking that sexual assault victim-blaming is still a serious issue in our society. This sentiment fosters a sense of self-blame in women who have been victims of sexual assault and is one of the reasons why less than 10 per cent of sexual assaults are actually reported to police. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The belief that women are responsible for sexual assault because of their actions or appearance is still common in our society, and can cause women who have suffered abuse to stay silent and often feel responsible for what happened to them,â&#x20AC;? says Anu Dugal, director of violence prevention at the Canadian Womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Foundation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We want to help women and girls understand that assault is never their fault.â&#x20AC;? In addition to physical trauma, sexual assault

victims commonly have long-term and serious psychological effects that may include depression, self-blame, shame, fear, and anger. The programs funded by the Canadian Womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Foundation help women recover and rebuild their lives through counselling, legal advice and safety planning. CONTACTS

But if council says ‘yes’ to a casino, more treatment funding needed: report laura.mueller@metroland.com

News - Ottawa’s top doctor says a new casino would be bad for Ottawa’s health. But if city council continues to pursue one or more new gambling sites, it should ensure the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation pumps $2 million into community-based gambling treatment services in the city. That would be a steep increase from the $741,000 the Champlain Local Health Integration Network currently receives to fund programs in Ottawa – a number that hasn’t changed since 2007. On top of that, Dr. Isra Levy, the city’s medical officer of health, says the city should allocate 6.5 per cent of its annual take of casino revenue (around $350,000 of the city’s current take from the Rideau Carleton Raceway slots) towards gambling-prevention programs run by Ottawa Public Health. That figure is currently zero. REVENUE UNKNOWN

PROXIMITY A FACTOR

The public health report says residents’ proximity to gaming facilities makes it more likely they will experience problems with gambling. The report cites multiple studies that indicate that the closer people live to a casino, the higher their risk of problem gambling. The public health report reveals that in 2010-11, the OLG spent nearly $300 million of its $6.7 billion in revenue on marketing and promoting gambling and $51.1 million on programs to address problem gambling. “In recent years, plans to increase availability of and access to gambling across Ontario as a

means to generate revenue have been proposed without concerted increased efforts to mitigate gambling-related harm among Ontario residents,” the report reads. “There is an identified need to improve awareness raising, early identification of people experiencing problems with gambling and to provide these individuals with timely and adequate treatment.”

tretown Community Health Centre board president, Jim Morrison, stated. The Rideau Carleton Raceway’s 1,250 slot machines attract 1.8 million visitors annually, while three million people visit the Lac Lemy casino in Gatineau each year, the health report states. Both facilities are open 24 hours a day – something Levy doesn’t recommend for a new gambling site in Ottawa.

The annual event became so well-known and grew to such an extent that after four years, with all of donations paid out to the military resource centres, it risked becoming a full-time commitment. In 2012, Commissionaires Ottawa CEO Paul Guindon made the difficult decision to cancel the event. Instead, he decided Commissionaires Ottawa would continue to support the valuable work of the resource centres by donating money that would have otherwise paid for the logistics and expenses of organizing the Run For Military Families. Since 2008, Commissionaires Ottawa has donated $215,000 to the cause.

No estimates on possible future casino revenue have been made public because it’s not known how large a new facility could be – or if there could be multiple gambling sites. The report released on Aug. 12 will provide ammunition for councillors who are opposed to adding more gambling options in the nation’s capital, a discussion that kicked off a year ago in Ottawa after the OLG asked municipal councils whether

they would be willing to consider accepting new gaming facilities as part of its gambling modernization plan. The board of health discussed the report at its Aug. 19 meeting and the information will also fuel a discussion at the finance and economic development committee on Aug. 26 about whether city council should ask the province and OLG to allow two gambling sites in Ottawa. While council had already indicated a preference to see gambling options expanded where they already exist in Ottawa – at the Rideau Carleton Raceway – councillors indicated in a unanimous vote on July 17 that they would like to discuss the option of another casino site in addition to keeping at least 21 gaming tables at the raceway.

Community - Arnprior is an active and busy town full of exciting community groups. If you like to sing, there are two choirs to consider. The Ottawa Valley Girls Choir is for girls between the ages of 8 and 15. For adults, both men and women, consider joining the Arnprior Community Choir. Music director Lisa Webber is pleased to welcome new singers for both ensembles this fall season. Over the past two years, girls from the Arnprior, Burnstown, Renfrew and Calabogie areas have come together in song and formed the Ottawa Valley Girls Choir. During rehearsals they learn good choral technique, part singing, performance style and they have a chance to sing with others in the area. There are a wide variety of abilities in the choir. Some singers take voice lessons; other music lessons; sing in school performances; talent shows; community musical theatre and church. All the girls truly enjoy making music together and polishing their songs to perform in concert. They rehearse in Arnprior, several Sunday afternoons a month, working towards a De-

News – Arnprior District High School student Oliver Jacob Gardiner is asking local students to share their ideas with him in the lead-up to Renfrew County youth forum to be held early next year. Gardiner can take the opinions of local students directly to the provincial government, as he is a member of the provincial Minister of Education’s Student Advisory Council (MSAC). He is asking students and parents to fill out a survey to help set the agenda for the

youth summit the Renfrew County Youth Group is going to be hosting. “From my experience, I have come to realize that not only one perspective needs to be heard and that everybody has a different point of view to bring to the table,” explained Gardiner. “That is why I am opening up this running discussion on your ideas about how the system can be bettered. POST COMMENTS

He asks students and parent to post any ideas and/or concerns to the online survey, but asks they be “clean, school-appropriate

and positive.” All feedback will be reviewed and studied, he promises. The survey link is http:// www.surveymonkey.com/s/NGMLJQN. Gardiner also welcomes questions, comments, concerns or ideas that can be emailed to him at msac_rcdsb5@hotmail.com, by calling 613-623-4796 or by contacting him on Facebook or Twitter. The MSAC is an advisory council of 63 students who come together twice a year to discuss the ideas and concerns of Ontario’s students with the goal of helping make the education system in Ontario “the best in the world.”

Alfredsson bids final farewell to Ottawa Sabine Gibbins

ed shot,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was also delighted by their enthusiasm and by their belief in how they saw me fitting into their plans. So that call opened my eyes to a possibility I had never thought of â&#x20AC;&#x201C; to play another year, maybe even two, with another great team.â&#x20AC;? Alfredsson said he never felt his agent had worked out a deal with Ottawa. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have any bad feelings against anybody. I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t say I feel disrespected. I understood itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s maybe hard for them to agree to my terms, but I had my reasons. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I respected Bryan (Murray) for everything heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s done for this team as a coach and GM,â&#x20AC;? said Alfredsson. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I understand it was hard for them to make it work under my terms.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;When we came to Ottawa all those years ago, we were excited and a little bit nervous. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know how long this new adventure will last, and if and when we will return, but Ottawa will always be home in our hearts.â&#x20AC;? He said his dedication to Ottawa remains strong, as well as his commitment to the hospital and other organizations he has supported, such as the Boys and Girls Club of Ottawa.

sabine.gibbins@metroland.com

Sports â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Daniel Alfredsson confirmed stalled contract negotiations were the reason behind his surprising departure from the Ottawa Senators. The former captain addressed the media and supporters at the Royal Ottawa Mental Health Centre last Thursday morning, where he pledged to continue supporting mental health initiatives while in Detroit playing with his new team. â&#x20AC;&#x153;To Ottawa, to the always loyal Sens fans, to the Sens organization â&#x20AC;&#x201C; thank you from the bottom of our hearts,â&#x20AC;? he said in the Royalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gymnasium. Alfredsson became an unrestricted free agent July 1 and was free to talk to teams in a limited capacity. He surprised many a few days later by signing a one-year $5.5 million contract with the Detroit Red Wings. Senators general manager Bryan Murray told media the team had offered Alfredsson $4.5 million for one-year, but Alfredssonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s agent, J.P. Barry, was said to have been asking for $7 million. In response, the Ottawa Senators acquired winger Bobby Ryan from the Anaheim Ducks.

Alfredsson gave his version of the events which eventually saw him accept a new role with the Red Wings. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When I did my last contract for four years ending in the (2012-13) season, I was asked to help the team manage the salary cap by adding on an extra year to my contract. I agreed,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Each side fully expected I would retire and not play the 2012-13 season.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;However, after the 2012 season, I told the Sens I wanted to play another season. I also asked to look at a possible extension for this upcoming season at a fair amount to balance out the two years for both of us. They agreed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sadly, the contract negotiations went nowhere, but I played out the season as I had promised and I believe this past season, in my view, was a very special one.â&#x20AC;?

Warden to host golf tournament at the Highlands Sports - The ninth County of Renfrew Wardenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Golf Tournament is scheduled for Friday, Aug. 23. It will be held for the first time with Greater Madawaska mayor Peter Emon as the warden, and will take place at Calabogie Highlands. The cost to enter a team of four is $280. Warden Emon has selected the Renfrew Area Health Services Village physician recruitment campaign as the recipient of tournament proceeds.

ONE MORE

â&#x20AC;&#x153;In late June of this year, I decided I had it in me to play at least one more season. I told management I was willing to return, and I reminded them of our agreement from the year, but to my disappointment, ne-

gotiations quickly stalled, and then a number of days later, fellow teams contacted me, including Detroit.â&#x20AC;? Alfredsson said he was attracted to Detroit because of their style of play and the fact he had friends on that team already. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I knew they needed a right-hand-

FAMILY

Apart from hockey, his work to spread awareness of mental health illnesses will continue. Seated next to his wife, Bibi Backman, and joined by their four children, the couple held hands before Alfredsson addressed the gathered crowd. The decision was made together as a family, he said, and was not an easy one.

THANKS

He thanked the community for showing never-ending support and genuine love towards his family through the ups and downs during his career as an Ottawa Senator. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hockey was why we came here,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not easy but Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m looking forward to this new chapterâ&#x20AC;ŚSometimes when youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been doing something for so long at the same place you need a change of scenery. This maybe will give me more energy.â&#x20AC;? Alfredsson began his NHL career with the Senators in the 1995-96 season, and has scored 426 goals and 682 assists for 1,108 points for a total of 1,178 regular-season games. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also been powerful in the playoffs with 51 goals and 100 points in 121 games. In last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lockout-shortened season, Alfredsson had 10 goals and 26 points in 47 games. Ottawa drafted him in the sixth round in 1994 and he went on to capture the Calder Trophy as the NHLâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s top rookie and appeared in six allstar games.

CONTRACT WENT â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;NOWHEREâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;

SABINE GIBBINS/METROLAND

Daniel Alfredsson answers questions from the media on his decision to depart Ottawa for Detroit. Failed contract talks between both camps resulted in what he said was a difficult decision. He pledged to continue supporting the Royal Ottawa Mental Health Centre.

He recalled when the family first came to Ottawa 18 years ago, ready and excited â&#x20AC;&#x201C; if a little nervous â&#x20AC;&#x201C; to start a new life. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s amazing to me that our Ottawa lives started 18 years ago,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Bibi and I first came to Ottawa in 1995 hoping that we would be able to make Ottawa our home. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And over those years I was delightedâ&#x20AC;Śto make some very special friendshipsâ&#x20AC;Ś and to lead your team for 13 seasons. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a journey my family and I will always cherish.â&#x20AC;?

Arnprior Basketball Club gears up for 2013-14 season Sports - Valley Pride is excited about the 2013-14 season. This is the ninth season for the competitive teams to compete in the Eastern Ontario Basketball Association. The club has had many successes during this time winning numerous medals at EOBA and at the OBA (Ontario ) levels. They have expanded the program for girls from just the Midget (Grade 9-10) level which was initiated in 2005 to offering opportunity at Bantam (Grade 7-8), Atom (Grade 5-6) and Novice (Grade 3). This year they hope to introduce Novice boys if they can identify a coach. Club teams at the Midget, Bantam and Atom teams will play a minimum of 25-30 games a year and the season for Atom and Bantam goes from mid October to April. Midgets begin after the high school season , late November, and will end late April. Novice will have clinics from October to March. The Novice will play some games in the new year after they have learned skills. When numbers are sufficient the Club offers girls to play ball in the Ottawa West league. This league is less competitive and teams play all the games in the west end of Ottawa.

Skating starts

ADHS ALUMNI

The club is excited to welcome aboard club and Arnprior District High School (ADHS) alumni who wish to give back to the community when they begin coaching this fall. Riley Quathamer, Celine Laplante, Alyse Laplante, Jessica Melanson, Celine Laplante and Courtney Pierce are all eager to join the coaching ranks. All the girls were members of ADHS teams and most competed at the Club level. Most have coached in some capacity with the L’l Warriors and club program. Despite this positive influx of talent, the club needs coaches for Novice boys. The club would welcome anyone with years of high school or Club experience to help coach at the Midget level. More information on registration for the upcoming year will appear in this paper in the next couple of weeks. Organizers hope that the elementary schools will help out and information will be distributed to the kids early September as well. Tryouts and registration will begin Sept. 11 and later. Visit Arnprior Basketball Club.ca for more information.

50th Celebration



A huge thank you to all our friends and relatives who helped to celebrate our 50th Anniversary. Our children, Collins, Scott, Jennifer, and Stewart, spouses and grandchildren made August 10th a full day of happiness. Thank you for the generous donations to various hospitals and care facilities marking this occasion as well as personal gifts, and cards. How good it is to be well and able to come together, to celebrate! Sincere thank you for golden memories, Denzil and Margie Ferguson CLR462454

CARD OF THANKS

Card of Thanks Jack Brez Our family would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who attended the Memorial Service for Jack. It was overwhelming to see so many people come together to give him such a beautiful ending to a life well lived. Thank you for all the cards, food, donations and moral support during this difficult time. We would like to extend our gratitude to the members of the West Carleton Response Team, Paramedics and the Police for always being so prompt and supportive when responding to our calls over the years. It is reassuring to know that we live in such a caring community. Special thanks to Dr. Earl Gordon and all the wonderful staff of ADMH, and the CCAC workers who cared for Dad. Our family wants to thank Rev. Mark Arnill, Rev. Jack Lougheed, Rick Leben and the UCW Ladies of St. Andrews United Church for all your preparations for the service and luncheon. Edith & Family CLR462122

Thank You We wish to thank everyone for their support before and during Scott Anglin’s devastating illness. Especially the “Bros” who taught skiing at Mt. Pakenham in the 1980’s and remained loyal friends, as did the “Bros” who lived together on McGonigal Street. Thanks to Scott’s life-long friends, including those in White Lake, friends in the music groups, “Skunk Hip Soup” and “Mud Hens”. We also want to thank his many biker friends, for riding to the visitation and for their escort after the memorial service to the reception. Being a creative person, The Gallery Gift Shop owners were please to sell his creations. We are aware that friends and colleagues have been missed. This is unintentional and therefore we decided not to mention names - you know who you are, and we thank you for being there for him, and us. Being very much a “people person” everywhere Scott went he knew someone, and they knew him. Thank you for your floral tributes, food, condolences and for your generous donations to Arnprior Partners in Caring Foundation, ADMH, and Cancer Society. Special thanks go to Dr. J. Becker, also Dr. A. Gutauskas, and Dr. A. Suzuki. All doctors, nurses, and staff were compassionate and caring during his brief hospital stay as were Emergency Room doctors and nurses. We also wish to thank doctors and assistants at The Queensway Carleton-Irving Greenberg Cancer Center. Andre Pilon and staff at Pilon Family Funeral Home were sympathetic and of great assistance during the visitation and memorial service and after this heartbreaking time. Again with our thanks, Helen and Ron CLR461527
