Collision concerns move west as Highway 417 completed through Arnprior A group of Arnprior District High School students travelling to Europe in the spring to visit Canadian war graves are looking for items from local families to help to help honour the fallen. – Page 19

EMC news – As of this week, Highway 417 now officially stretches past Arnprior, almost to Campbell Drive. The completion of the four-laning through the Arnprior area has prompted inevitable concerns the funnelling of traffic from four to two lanes just west of the Division Street overpass could result in serious collisions there. The removal of the construction zone speed limits and the erecting of the 100-km-h speed signs on the eastbound stretch have allowed highway traffic to fly by the town at a much higher speed. To slow traffic a bit as it approaches the end of the four lanes, the westbound speed limit has been reduced to 90-km-h at White Lake Road. The four-laning project certainly has had its benefits when it comes to safety. The White Lake Road-Daniel Street overpass has finally brought to an end the series of serious crashes at that deadly intersection. The Division Street overpass has also eliminated another dangerous highway crossing. The removal of intersections with traffic lights has greatly improved the flow of traffic along the highway through Arnprior. It wasn’t too long ago that highly frustrated drivers were frequently mired in long traffic line-ups at lights at White Lake Road and County Road 29. During summer weekends, the lines could stretch for miles at busy times. See MORE COLLISIONS Page 3

EMC news - There is a growing campaign to find an Arnprior woman who has gone missing in the United States. Sarah-Jane Stavenow left Ottawa airport on Friday, Nov. 16 and sent back word that she had landed safely in Los Angeles, California. Stavenow was to contact fiancé Ryan Kearney after she had checked into her room at the Ramada Hotel, but that never happened. Stavenow was due to arrive home Wednesday but didn’t show up at the airport for her flight. There has been no activity on her credit cards and her cell phone appears to be turned off, say her family. Her Facebook account has also seen no activity during the days she’s been missing. Her mother, Suzanne Andrews-Sylvestre of Arnprior, made an impassioned post on Facebook Wednesday morning.
EMC news – The Christmas season officially begins in Arnprior this week with the annual Legion Santa Parade this Saturday, Nov. 24 and the setting up of the Salvation Army kettle Wednesday. The parade will start at its usual time, 6 p.m., and take the normal route to and from Winners Circle, down Daniel Street and up John Street. The Arnprior Legion is still looking for more floats, but act quickly. The registration deadline is this Friday, Nov. 23 (call 613-623-4722 to sign up). Santa will give out treats to the kiddies afterwards at the Legion, where the Ottawa Valley Concert Band will be entertaining anyone who shows up. Legion members and supporters will be collecting food and cash donations for the Arnprior District Food Bank along the parade route.
It is the season to give as well as to receive, and with this in mind, the Salvation Army has set up its donation kettle and an angel tree at the Arnprior Mall again this year. The cash donations will go toward care packages and gifts for needy families this Christmas, as well as bolstering the Army’s emergency fund. Take a card from the Angel tree and return with an age and gender appropriate gift to help a local child have a merrier Christmas. Donors can contribute financially or choose an angel from the tree and purchase a gift for a child of a specific gender and age. Last year the local Salvation Army campaign helped 118 families, 58 from Arnprior and 60 in Renfrew. Arnprior’s families in need consisted of 85 adults and 72 children.

More serious collisions expected Continued from front
The issue of trafďŹ c safety was raised at Tuesdayâ€™s McNab-Braeside council meeting during a discussion over the township ďŹ re departmentâ€™s acquisition of auto extrication equipment. Both ďŹ re chief Ken Walton and Mayor Mary Campbell agreed it wouldnâ€™t be surprising if there are serious collisions at the new end of the four-lanes, which is located in the township. Campbell had noted, with surprise, that the ďŹ re department had not been called to any highway crashes in the third quarter of this year. â€œThatâ€™s an anomaly,â€? agreed Walton.
The highway construction slowing trafďŹ c in the area may have been a factor. However, Campbell said it isnâ€™t likely to last now the work is completed and drivers are speeding up again. The McNab-Braeside Fire Department received the extrication equipment thanks to a donation. It already has light extrication equipment, but calls in the Arnprior or Renfrew ďŹ re departments if heavy equipment is needed. With the possibility mutual aid agreements might soon no longer provide auto extrication free, it is beneďŹ cial for the township ďŹ re department to have the equipment, explained Walton. Fire chiefs in
the county will be voting on the auto extrication issue next month, he said. Nevertheless, some councillors were wary about the department using the equipment. Deputy Mayor Christine Blimkie wondered if there were any extra costs involved, noting that once the service is offered, itâ€™s not likely to be withdrawn. Therefore, when the equipment wears out, the ďŹ re department would have to replace it, she noted. Councillors Aldene Styles and Bob Campbell said theyâ€™d like more information before sanctioning its use. Coun. Brad McIlquham said he supported the use, noting â€œwe have a number of accidents here and we should be able to handle them.â€? Mayor Campbell said she was â€œcautiouslyâ€? leaning to supporting the use. Arnprior Mayor David Reid has pointed out the town is shouldering the burden of auto extrication on Highway
Traffic speeds up as the highway eastbound changes into four lanes just west of Arnprior.

Hospitalâ€™s Christmas campaign off to great start EMC news - Chris and Peter McCluskey kicked off the Arnprior District Memorial Hospitalâ€™s Christmas Campaign by presenting a cheque to president and CEO Eric Hanna for an impressive $7,200. The money was raised through the Smile Cookie Campaign at both Tim Hortons locations in town. The Partners in Caring Christmas Campaign has set a high goal for the 2012 Campaign. A new gastroscope is required in the operating room and this piece of equipment costs $42,000. â€œI am thrilled that Partners in Caring had dedicated this yearâ€™s campaign towards the purchase of a Gastroscope. This piece of equipment allows for superior visual clarity and is much needed at Arnprior Regional Health,â€? explained internist Dr. Cathy Greenough. A gastroscope will allow Dr. Greenough to screen for any abnormalities in the stomach. In addition to the Christmas Tree Lighting Friday, Dec. 7 at the hospital, the festivities will include Christmas Carols with Darlene Thibault and Suzana McNeil, hot chocolate compliments of Tim Hortons, barbecued hot dogs, with Santa arriving in a special sleigh compliments of the Arnprior
Fire Department. Parents should bring their cameras to get a picture with Santa. The family of the late Mr. Irvin Woermke will light the trees in his memory. Members of the community are encouraged to also purchase lights in memory of their loved ones or in honor of a staff or physician at Arnprior Regional Health. For more information about the Christmas Tree Lighting, contact Karen Smith at 613623-7962, ext. 362. In support of the Christmas Campaign is the Decorate Your Door contest. Cash prizes will be awarded to three winners. The contest is open to anyone with a completed registration form and a $15 entry fee. It is a great opportunity to show your Christmas spirit and hopefully win one of the cash prizes ($450, $225 or $150). The contest is open to anyone who has a door, be it a business, home, church, school or apartment. Registration deadline is Friday, Nov. 30. The winners will be announced at the Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony on Dec. 7. The tree-lighting ceremony will begin at 6 p.m. on the front steps of ADMH. For more information about Decorate Your Door, call Ted Kelly at 613-623-3665.

â€œWeâ€™re just looking for people to support the campaign and also volunteers to work the kettle,â€? said Salvation Army Major Janice Bishop Wednesday as she set up the kettle in front of the Hart Department store. The kettle will be at the Mall until just before Christmas. The Salvation Army could do with some more kettle volunteers in Arnprior. Call Jane 613-432-7721 if you are interested. In a national news release launching the campaign, the Salvation Army said its aim is to raise both money and awareness for the millions of Canadians currently living in poverty. â€œWe want to encourage all Canadians to dream of a world where everyone has access to lifeâ€™s basic needs,â€? said Commissioner Brian Peddle. â€œWe hope this campaign will demonstrate to the donating public
A photo in last weekâ€™s Arnprior Chronicle-Guide depicting Silver Cross mother Lois Robillard being presented with a pin contained incorrect information.

that no amount is too small and that every gift makes a big difference in the life of a person in need.â€? The Army thanks retailers, including the Arnprior Shopping Centre, for allowing it to set up its kettles in well-travelled retail areas. As well as contributing money directly at the kettle in the mall, donors can give online at FilltheKettle.com, directing the donation to the area they want. That way all money raised in a community will stay in a community,
notes the Army. Donors can also host their own virtual kettle or a fundraising event. As well, donations can be made at www.SalvationArmy. ca, by calling 1-800-SALARMY (725-2769) or via mail to The Salvation Army, 2 Overlea Blvd, Toronto, ON M4H 1P4. Donors can also support the Christmas Campaign by texting HOPE to 45678 from most mobile carriers in Canada. A $5 donation will be added to your monthly mobile bill. Last year, Christmas kettles raised $21 million across Canada, with the growing demand making the goal even higher this year. The Christmas Campaign helps The Salvation Army provide direct, compassionate, hands-on service to more than 1.8 million people in Canada each year, restoring hope and dignity to the most vulnerable in society. Many other organizations and businesses are raising money for the less for-

Group unveils draft design plan for downtown Public has time to comment on Streetscape recommendations before Nov. 30 deadline Sabine Gibbins email@example.com
EMC news – A plan to beautify the downtown core was revealed Arnprior council meeting Nov. 13. The draft Streetscape and Landscape Design Plan (SLDP), a project undertaken by the MMM Group of Ottawa, was presented to council during a special segment of its meeting held at the Nick Smith Centre to accommodate public attendance. Jonathan Loschmann, senior landscape architect with MMM Group, who serves as project manager for the SLDP, explained to councillors and public members how since July they’ve been working with the town and stakeholders to craft the plan. The total projected cost to implement the draft plan would be $5.33 million. “Tonight I’d just like to provide to you an overview
of the project’s intents,” said Loschmann. “And provide you with a summary of the engagement both with stakeholders and the public that was undertaken.” He added council was not making any decisions that evening. The plan acts as a first step in the reconstruction of the downtown, starting with John Street North and Elgin Street West. The core downtown area being revitalized includes Elgin Street West between Madawaska and Daniel streets, and John Street North between Daniel and Madawaska streets. The details of the finalized project will come before council at a meeting in December. The SLDP, said Loschmann, is to serve as a technical tool to guide design and expenditures of future streetscape and related infrastructure in the downtown core.
“Kudos to council and town staff in that this plan addresses pointed recommendations of the 2011 Community Improvement Plan,” he continued. The project has been created in close consultation with town staff, its accessibility committee and the municipal heritage committee, as well as with the public. Loschmann explained to council how 11 guiding principles shape the plan. These includes pedestrian realm, the addition of trees and vegetation, screening of utility and off-street parking areas, universal accessiblity, outdoor seating, comfortable multimodel transportation, views and sightlines, character-defining signage, building form, consistent and unified streets, and gateway improvements, such as public art. The entire scope of the project has unleashed a positive buzz around town, added

Additionally, more features could include bump-outs at select crossings, concrete parking stalls, decorative crosswalks, vegetated planters with seasonal planting, and public art. Overall, councillors were pleased with Loschmann’s presentation and made no negative remarks concerning the project. The public has time to comment on it, but should provide input by Nov. 30 in order for it to be considered before it goes to council next month, said town planner Robin Smith.

Council opposes Carss Street development, church signage Sabine Gibbins firstname.lastname@example.org
Strike and Reid were part of the majority who voted against the proposal. CHURCH SIGN
Council voted against granting an increase in the size of a sign owned by the Roman Catholic Episcopal Church. On Oct. 22, councillors were asked to consider approving a minor variance that would allow for an increase to a sign advertising St. John Chrysostom Church on Daniel Street South. At the time, council deferred the recommendation, as they wished to receive comments from surrounding business owners who could be affected by the change. “I look at this and I want to say ‘yes’, but I am going to say no,” said Mayor Reid. “You look at the existing signs and they’re already 78 per cent larger than the existing bylaw
allows for, and now they want to go to two times what the existing bylaw provides for.” However, this recommendation calls into question the need for a revision of the town’s sign bylaws, he said. Council defeated the recommendation.
well as a number of public education events at various locations in the community. Additionally, fire prevention and protection officers attended 16 different training courses to expand their job knowledge. HOCKEY MECCA
The Arnprior Fire Department recorded a successful Fire Prevention Week. Fire prevention officers Cory Nicholas and Rick Desmaria presented their report to council, which heard the department had visited 267 homes throughout the 2012 smoke alarm campaign. In total, 17 alarms and 14 batteries were distributed and 181 bags were given out. The fire department also conducted 12 station tours totaling 252 visitors, 25 classroom visits at area schools with Sparky the fire dog, as
Town council gave the green light to put in a bid to host three major women’s hockey events in 2013. Director of Recreation Glenn Arthur asked council to consider placing a submission for the town to host three tournaments: the Clarkson Cup from March 21 to 24, the Women’s World Hockey Championship – Pre-Tournament Camp from March 27 to April 1, and the Ontario Women’s Hockey Association Provincial Championship from April 4 to 7. He also asked council to direct the corporate services/
treasurer to include funding in the amount of $5,000 per event for a total of $15,000 towards a sponsorship for each event in the 2013 draft budget submissions. The department would apply for funding from the Eastern Ontario Development Program to help fund the projects, he noted. This request comes hot on the heels of Arnprior and neighbours recently hosting the successful World Broomball Championships. NEW AWARD
Town council voted to replace the Mayor’s Community Awards with a Volunteer of the Year Award. The town’s awards committee decided to recommend the deletion of the Mayor’s Community Awards, since they are very similar to awards presented by the Greater Arnprior Chamber of Commerce.
EMC news – Arnprior town council voted against the development of a townhouse development at its meeting Nov. 13. The development, proposed to be located at 62 Carss St., raised the ire of nearby residents who said it did not fit in well with the street’s character. The owner proposed to demolish the semi-detached dwelling on the site and construct a three-unit freehold townhouse. The developer also requested that the lands be rezoned from an R1 to an R3, which would permit a single, semi-detached duplex or triplex or townhouse or apartment dwellings on the site. Decisions were originally deferred from the Oct. 22 meeting for council to seek clarification on the delivery of public notices, as well to
receive more information from the town’s public works department in respect to infrastructure in the area. “I indicated some of my concerns at the last council meeting,” said Coun. Ted Strike. “This subdivision dates back to the turn of the century … It wasn’t until the early ‘50s and early ‘60s they started seeing an R3 (type of zoning) in this particular area. Intensification has its limit. “I think an R3 in this particular property is not right and I won’t be supporting it.” Mayor Dave Reid echoed his council colleague’s sentiments. If the road allowance was different, he would support it, he said, but in this case it is too narrow. “There are issues now,” he said in regards to parking woes on the street. The mayor indicated he would support it being grandfathered as an R2 to further intensify the street.

Seed growers step up to help farmers in need The Ottawa Valley Seed Growers Association is making a difference. Association directors voted recently to give $15,000 to the Hay East campaign working to alleviate a feed shortage in Renfrew County and other parts of Eastern Ontario after this summerâ€™s drought. It costs an average $3,000 per truckload to move the feed from
western Canada. The seed growersâ€™ contribution will hopefully be the start of a trend to support a federal funding program whereby the government matches community contributions dollar for dollar. The program, for example, will see the seed growersâ€™ $15,000 donation trigger another $15,000. That would cover 10 transport trips.
As an association press release explained, â€œWith a slogan of farmers working for farmers, they felt it was just the kind of program the association should take part in.â€? Funds provided by the Seed Growers to Hay East are raised at the annual Ottawa Valley Farm Show, which the association has sponsored for more than 85 years.
The association noted that, appropriately, the farm show debuted in Renfrew County as a seed fair and competition. Meanwhile, the Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs reminds farmers that the Ontario Hay Listings Service is an asset to farmers who are having a difficult time trying to find the hay needed to
sustain their herds. To access the listing, visit www.ontariohaylistings.ca or contact the Ontario Forage Council at 1-877-892-8663. Our ancestors left their mark in barn-raisings, threshing bees and cooperation. As a truly rural community, support for our agricultural community is important.
Give credit to Korean War veterans To the editor: Re article in Nov. 8 Arnprior Chronicle Guide EMC. I wish to thank Laurie Dougherty for her fine article re the 60th anniversary of erecting the cenotaph in Arnprior. We need to be in touch with our history. I take exception, however, to the wording of the last paragraph which ends: â€œâ€Ś to honour those who died in World War I, World War II, and the Korean Conflict.â€? To term what took place in Korea a mere â€œconflictâ€? is inaccurate, unjust and dishonours those who fought and died there to free South Korea. Sixteen nations, including Canada, came to the aid of South Korea in her hour of need. All too many gave their very lives. Permit me to quote
some casualty figures: South Korean Forces â€“ 200,000; American â€“ 55,000; Allied â€“ 3, 500; Canada â€“ 516; Chinese and North Korean â€“ 1,500,000; Korean civilians â€“ 2,000,000. Canadaâ€™s contribution, though small compared to the U.S., was significant. In one engagement, at a place called Kap Yong, Canadian soldiers of the Second Battalion P.P.C.L.I. particularly distinguished themselves. In fighting off a much superior force of the enemy, they were key to forestalling yet another Communist offensive aimed at the capital, which already changed hands four times. For their stubborn defense, they were awarded a unit citation. This is an honour rarely
given. The commander of the U.S. Marine Corps said on one occasion: â€œI have the sea on my one flank, and the Canadians on the other. At night I sleep well because I know that in the morning theyâ€™ll both still be there.â€? Next year we, the surviving veterans of the Korean War, observe a significant milestone of our own. July 27 marks the 60th anniversary of the ceasefire. On behalf of the 35,000 Canadians, soldiers, sailors, and airmen who served there in war and on peacekeeping, 516 of whom gave their lives, I respectfully request that people give credit where credit is due in making reference to the Korean War. Ted Graham Korean War veteran Arnprior
Get informed about the asphalt plant application To the editor: In 2011 neighbours of the Braeside Quarry took Miller Group to court because of adverse effects they suffered from a temporary asphalt plant in the Braeside quarry. They won that case, hands down, slam dunk as this newspaper said. Judge Sauriol found Miller guilty on all charges â€“ nuisance, trespass and negligence. Judge Sauriol agreed that residents have a right to reasonable use of their property. After all, they have paid for it, pay taxes on it, pay upkeep; they should be able to enjoy it, not have to rent somewhere else for the season, as some have, to get away from adverse effects of pollution. It is not a bad smell that people must escape, it is serious pollution. Some people even say they canâ€™t talk about the Miller trial, saying the judgment is â€˜before the courtâ€™. Legal opinion says otherwise. This decision, handed down in November 2011, is available to the public on line. It can be discussed! Until a judge rules on the Miller appeal, this ruling stands. There was a long involved process begun by the company that owns the quarry, the Miller Group, to ask McNab-Braeside Council to allow a permanent asphalt plant on this location. This process is now coming to crunch time.
Some people get the impression when they hear the word â€˜plantâ€™ that a permanent asphalt plant is a big building where people go in, do their job and come home again. Actually, the â€œplantâ€? is a big machine, basically, where sand and finely ground aggregate are mixed with bitumen, a tarry petroleum product; a lot of heat is added to make it all molten and out comes asphalt. Some people have been under the impression that this will give work to local labourers. How many? The â€œplantâ€? will require a foreman, an asphalt plant operator, a loader operator who fills the hoppers with aggregate, etc. and a handyman. How many is that, four? These are seasonal jobs, if and when there are contracts. Will they hire locally? Who knows? The team for the temporary asphalt plant was from out-of-town as were many of the truck drivers. I hope this letter will add some facts to the discussion. Pollution, unchecked, will have long and far reaching effects. Now is the time to get informed. Thank you. Regina Rolph McNab-Braeside

Largely forgotten veterans honoured by inmates about our involvement as part of the Allied intervention in the Russian Civil War. What intervention you say? Well Canada participated in that conflict as part a 14-nation force comprising over 255,500 personnel. Our contribution that went overseas to Russia was brigade sized numbering 4,192 soldiers. They landed in 1917 as the Canadian Siberian Expeditionary Force (C.S.E.F.). Most of the troops were stationed at Vladivostok, but another 1,100 were assigned to the Murmansk area and 41 more were positioned in the Baku region. In the two years of the deployment, front line fighting was sporadic and minimal, however, 14 Canadians died in theatre and are buried in Russia in a Commonwealth War Graves Commission Cemetery at Vladivostok. But closer to home are two additional graves in British Columbia that belong to soldiers who died from circumstances associated with
Public needs to hear from experts reviewing the quarry reports To the editor: Believe it or not, it has been nearly seven years since we first heard about the Miller Braeside Quarry expansion plans. The application is finally complete and it now goes before council for their review and decision. This is how it works. Miller experts write studies on things like the hydrogeology of the ridge (our aquifers), traffic generated by the expansion, air quality because of the industries put into the quarry like the permanent asphalt and concrete plants, acoustics because of loud machinery, etc. Then the Township hires more experts, paid for by Millers, to read the studies and write a review of them. These are the peer reviewers, the people who have the scientific knowledge to ask the right questions. Then Council must read all these studies, discuss them and ask questions. Miller has said their experts will be available to answer any of Council’s questions on their studies. Fine. But here’s where the process breaks down. The peer reviewers have indicated questions and concerns about the studies and written those in their reports.
So Council should be able to ask these people in person why they had concerns. But that isn’t going to happen because Council will not hear from the peer reviewers. Why not? Bruce Howarth, County planner, the person orchestrating this process, says, no, no, no, you don’t need to hear from them. Well, as a member of the public, I disagree. I read the Air Quality Study and was interested to note what the peer reviewer said about it. Here was one of his concerns. Computer modelling is used to guesstimate how bad emissions will be at each nearby house. But the peer reviewer said, Wait a minute, you have used an open pit mining model, which has a ratio of 1:10, depth to width. But the Braeside Quarry has a ratio of 1:55, depth to width! How are these two comparable? They aren’t! So I think our Council and the public have the right to hear from not just the proponent’s experts but the experts hired to critique them. Should be fair, don’t you think, not biased in favour of the proponent.
the ‘intervention.’ These graves are located at a location west of Victoria on a lovely peninsula of land known as William Head. While we can visit the cemetery in Vladivostok, the general public can’t visit these two graves in Canada. The reason is because they are located in a prison administered by the Correctional Service of Canada. The remains of these two veterans lie side by side under the spread of a magnificent Douglas Fir Tree in the cemetery that was part of the Pacific Quarantine Station. They are respectfully tended to by inmates incarcerated therein and
each year on Nov.11, there is a Remembrance Day ceremony to honour these soldiers. While most of us do not know much, if anything about our involvement in Russia in 191718, prisoners at this penal institution do.

THE MONTH BEFORE
CHRISTMAS 23+ Vendors
To the editor: While it has been almost one week since Remembrance Day (Nov. 11), we tend to put our observances on the back burner and enter into another calendar driven cycle without thinking much about the adage we all know that is associated with Remembrance Day. “Lest We Forget ... Lest We Forget.” It is just human nature, I suspect, and like other observances we have, it seems normal to do so. Having said this, we can’t honour all those who served and died in the service of our country if we really don’t know much about such history. So I pose this question to one and all who might read this letter. What do you know about the Canadian mission to Russia during the civil war that was fought there? I suspect not much. In fact I would not be surprised to learn that Canadians know more about the MackenziePapineau Battalion in the Spanish War than

Be open-minded, but make sure you make informed choices To the Editor: Ms. Mueller-Codeâ€™s letter in defense of homeopathy (Arnprior Chronicle Guide EMC, Nov. 15) covers so much territory, yet manages to say so very little of substance. Still, since sheâ€™s gone to so much trouble, it would be churlish of me not to respond. Letâ€™s start with the numbered points, so useful in giving the illusion of a reasoned and organized argument, and meander from there, shall we? 1. The function of the media. Ms. Mueller-Code maintains that the function of the media is to inform and not to judge. This redeďŹ nition stands in absurdly stark contrast to every pundit, columnist, and radio call-in host that ever drew breath. The media is not an encyclopeadia of justthe-facts. The reality is far more complex, and has been since before William Randal Hearst. And even though a discussion of objectivity in the media could prove quite interesting (I personally feel that a bit more fact-based reporting would be a good thing), I am at a complete loss as to what any of this has to do with homeopathy. 2. Our constitutional rights. Iâ€™m afraid Ms. Mueller-Code is on another tangent here, and one that is equally wrong-headed. There is really no call for confusing the constitution of Canada with an Ayn Rand novel. â€œChoiceâ€? is not the central tenet of our constitution, and my Canadian sensibilities (peace, order, and good government, eh?) are offended by such a blatantly American-style appeal. Furthermore, to claim that â€œnobody has any jurisdiction over anyone elseâ€? is dangerously wrong. Last I checked, we were a civil society governed by laws. Not only do courts and police have jurisdiction over those who would harm others or themselves, but there are countless codes and regulations that make sure our food and water wonâ€™t poison us, our businesses wonâ€™t cheat us, our institutions will serve us fairly, etc. I suppose a dialogue about choice and free will (without trying to shoehorn the constitution into the picture) might be fun, but again, Iâ€™m a tad mystiďŹ ed as to what it has to do with the main point of contention, which would be:
3. The effectiveness of homeopathic remedies. Ms. Mueller-Code seems reluctant to offer any concrete proof, scientiďŹ c studies, or factual arguments in favour of homeopathy. Perhaps the recent class action lawsuit against homeopathic manufacturer Boironâ€™s advertising and the resultant $12 million settlement has given her cause to avoid any statistical claims. Instead, she tells us that since homeopathy has been around for about 200 years, it must, therefore, be safe and effective. Just like international communism, that jar of mayonnaise that Iâ€™m afraid to touch in the back of my fridge, and anything else that happens to be around 200 years old. We are also informed that homeopathy works because the royal family has been using it for generations. This would be the same royal family with members that take pictures of their naked drunken Las Vegas parties and dress as Nazis for Halloween, so you just know their judgment is sound. Another reason homeopathy works, according to Ms. Mueller-Code, is because there used to be a place called the Royal London Homeopathic Hospital. Mind you, they changed their name to the Royal London Hospital for Integrated Medicine over two years ago, probably in an effort to stop tying themselves exclusively to an increasingly discredited practice. But still, theyâ€™ve had the words â€œroyalâ€? and â€œhospitalâ€? in their name for the longest time, therefore homeopathy works. Wow! Ms. Mueller-Code closes by encouraging â€œeveryone to become more open-minded in order to make their own educated choices.â€? I couldnâ€™t agree with her more. The more that people educate themselves, the closer homeopathy gets to the dustbin of history. By all means, learn all about alternatives and keep an open mind. Just, please, donâ€™t be so open-minded that your brain falls out. Andrew Fogarasi Arnprior

Algonquin Park provides life-long memories EMC lifestyle - As many of you know, I hold a great fondness for Algonquin Park. In addition to being one of the most beautiful places on this planet, it is home to myriad plants and animals, many not occurring much farther south in Ontario. Every trip to Algonquin provides lifelong memories, many involving encounters with its wild inhabitants. Over the years I have seen much of park’s vast interior, yet one of my favourite haunts lies right along a public road. Only 6.2 kilometres long, the Opeongo Road contains stunning beauty and harbours a
wealth of wildlife. For much of its length, the road follows Costello Creek. This slow-moving waterway winds through floating mats of northern peatland with a dramatic cliff for a backdrop near where it flows under the Opeongo Road. Recently my good friend Rory MacKay and I visited the Opeongo Road. We arrived a dawn to find frost painting bog plants white and thin ice coating much of the water. A single Bohemian Waxwing, a rare visitor to Algonquin, sang out its sizzling notes as it flew over the creek. Soon after, we heard ice
cracking and soft whistles. We snuck down a point to see what was making the commotion. To our delight the origin was a group of eight otters. The aquatic weasels romped atop the ice, periodically wrestling with each other. Many minutes passed before they vanished into the frosted vegetation. Farther along the creek, we came across a muskrat near to a Ring-necked Duck, two American Black Ducks and three Hooded Mergansers. The muskrat obviously did not want company, for it repeatedly swam toward and lunged at the ducks, causing them to
move farther away. Just behind the ducks, a mink briefly loped along the edge of the ice. A second muskrat swam into the scene and it too harassed the undoubtedly puzzled ducks. As we worked our way along the creek, six Gray Jays and a small band of chickadees descended on us. The birds landed around and even on us; they obviously were used to being fed. As we had nothing to offer, they eventually lost interest and moved away. All morning northern finches called overhead as they flew across the sky. Red and White-winged crossbills, Pine Grosbeaks, and Common Redpolls were heard but
Michael Runtz Nature’s Way not seen. Other birds were more obliging: a Black-backed Woodpecker landed on a tall larch across the creek and a male Spruce Grouse plucked grit from the side of the road. The remarkable day ended
with one very exciting encounter. A Northern Hawk Owl had been seen that very morning, so we diligently scrutinized the tops of spruces along the creek for its distinctive large-headed, long tailed silhouette. Our efforts were rewarded in late afternoon. At first the diurnal owl perched nearly a kilometre away but eventually moved to our side of the creek, offering brief but excellent views. When we finally left we came across a second mink at the other end of the creek. Once again, Costello Creek revealed its magic. The Nature Number is 613387-2503; email is mruntz@ start.ca.

Prepare now for winter driving
Trial starts for driver involved in fatal Hwy. 17 crash EMC news - The trial of a Valley woman charged after an Ottawa man was killed last year in a head-on collision near Arnprior has begun in Ottawa court. Dr. Christy Natsis, 46, a prominent Pembroke dentist and hospital booster, has pleaded not guilty to impaired driving causing death, dangerous driving causing death and driving with a blood-alcohol level over the legal limit. Her westbound SUV hit an eastbound Dodge Dakota on Highway 17 just west of the White Lake Road intersection in the evening of March 31, 2011. The crash killed the other driver, 50-year-old Bryan Casey of Ottawa. He was the father of three children under 12. Police, Arnprior firefighters and Ottawa Paramedics attended the scene. Natsis was arrested by police at the scene. The trial started Monday with the prosecution calling witnesses who had observed Natsis earlier that evening at the Crazy Horse Restaurant in Kanata. Natsis is being defended by well-known lawyer Michael Edelson. A series of witnesses followed as the trial continued throughout the week.] Among those called to the stand were other motorists on the highway that night including those who stopped at the scene of the collision, Paramedics and police officers. The trial is expected to continue well into next week.

EMC news - The Ontario Provincial Police has identified the human remains found in a wooded area of Greater Madawaska Township Dec. 11. At first the police were unable to say if the decomposed body was male or female, but a post-mortem conducted last Wednesday in Toronto determined the remains are those of Fouad Nayel, 28, of Ottawa. He was reported missing by family members in June 2012. The OPP is treating the case as a homicide. Police began investigating the death after the Renfrew OPP detachment responded to a call about 3:30 p.m. Sunday. The call concerned the discovery of human remains found near Norton Road, just north of Calabogie.
The OPP and the Ottawa Police Service are conducting the investigation, under the direction of OPP Detective-Inspector Kevin Corcoran of the Criminal Investigation Branch. The OPPâ€™s emergency response team (ERT) is assisting in the investigation. Numerous OPP officers were on the scene, with various other units assigned to the case. These units included the Renfrew OPP crime unit, East Regionâ€™s crime and canine units and the OPPâ€™s forensic unit out of Smiths Falls. Anyone with information about the investigation is asked to contact the Renfrew OPP crime unit at 613-432-3211 or the OPP at 1-888-310-1122.

EMC news - Despite the sometimes balmy weather of the last week, the temperatures are forecast to dip below freezing this weekend. Winter is about to land in this area and now is the time to prepare your vehicle for winter driving, urge the OPP. Preparing yourself and your vehicle for the harsh winter weather ahead can go a long way in reducing collisions â€“ something the OPP sees far too many of every winter. â€˘ Install four winter-rated tires before the first snowfall. They improve driving safety by providing better traction, braking and handling during frost, snow, slush, and particularly under icy conditions. Installing four winter tires provides greater control and stability. â€˘ Have an ice scraper or snow brush in your vehicle to keep your windows, signals and lights clear. â€˘ Top up your windshield washer reservoir and keep an extra one handy. â€˘ Keep your fuel tank at least half full, so you donâ€™t run out of gas should you be-

EMC events – It’s the most wonderful time of the year. And what better way to celebrate than to get into the holiday spirit and decorate with dazzling Christmas lights and décor? For the second year in a row, Arnprior RE/ MAX broker Ted Kelly is encouraging area residents, businesses and organizations to participate in a holiday decorating contest. Kelly, who is chair of the Arnprior Regional Health Partners in Caring Foundation – which raises funds for Arnprior and District Memorial Hospital - said the main goal behind the second annual contest is to get the campaign more exposure, as well as get everyone into the holiday season. “Personally, I just wanted to raise the holiday spirit, besides showing the different ways the hospital supports the community,” he said. The contest is open to Town of Arnprior, Township of McNab-Braeside, and the former townships of Pakenham (now part of the Town Mississippi Mills) and Fitzroy (now part of West Carleton-March ward in the City of Ottawa) homes, businesses or organizations, said Kelly, which is the catchment area for the hos-
pital and foundation. Last year, the contest saw about a dozen entries take part in three different categories. Kelly hopes to see more get involved this year in all three. “I’m starting to slowly get a reaction from people,” he said. Last year’s inaugural event drew a myriad of unique entries, which were nothing short of spectacular, he said. One family out in the country in the White Lake area decked out their house with sound and light, remembers Kelly. A registration fee of $15 goes to the Partners in Caring Foundation, and all those interested are asked to apply no later than Friday, Nov. 30. Competition judging will take place from Dec. 3 through to Dec. 7, with judging criteria based on the most original concept, most environmentally friendly, and most holiday spirit. Prizes of first place ($450), second place ($225) and third place ($150) will be awarded, with a special prize of four Ottawa 67s tickets presented to the house with the best holiday spirit display. Winners will be announced at the annual Tree Lighting Ceremony at the Arnprior and District Memorial Hospital Dec. 7 at 6 p.m.

EMC news – The drought is waning in Renfrew County, but officials are still concerned about the low water situation. At its bi-weekly meeting last week, the County of Renfrew Water Response Team (WRT) discussed the latest surface water flow rates, precipitation levels and the ongoing problems facing County residents and businesses who rely on groundwater sources for water. While the latest data shows that surface water flow rates in the Petawawa, Madawaska and Ottawa Rivers have recovered to near normal levels, the Bonnechere River is still flowing at a rate below normal. Precipitation rates have increased across the County to

near normal levels and the improvements in the natural water system have led the WRT to determine that the County is now in a Level 1 drought, down from a Level 2. This is the lowest level of drought severity in Ontario, on a scale of 1 to 3, and reflects the improving water situation faced in the County. However, there are still serious concerns about groundwater levels and reports of wells going dry continue to be received by local well drillers and the WRT. The declaration of a Level 2 Drought was made by the WRT on July 19, and since then the County has been in the lowest point of a serious low water situation, which ac-

Emon, like current Warden Sweet, has said that minimum stays of two years in the position would allow for more continuity of service.

Greater Madawaska Mayor Peter Emon will be the next warden of Renfrew County. Chief administrative officer Jim Hutton announced last week that the Calabogie resident will assume the position at the Dec. 11 inaugural session of county council. Emon was the only member of county council nominated for warden prior to the 4 p.m. deadline on Nov. 13. When notified that he was acclaimed to the office of warden, Mayor Emon said, “It will be a great honour for me to be seated in the warden’s chair after the December meeting; one I will treat with respect and thoughtfulness.” Emon also noted there’s a “super staff” at the county upon which he says he’ll lean heavily for advice and information. Emon also said he’ll actively consult current Warden Bob Sweet of Petawawa and past wardens Don Rathwell of Whitewater Region and Janice Visneskie of Killaloe-Hagarty-Richards. “I wish,” said Emon, “for council and staff to continue in the tradition of our many wise predecessors, having established mutual respect for each other and individual opinions, continued respect for our guests at council and our staff, and for our taxpayers during our dayto-day interactions with them.” The inaugural session will begin Dec. 11 at 10 a.m. At that time, Emon’s inaugural speech will outline his goals and vision for the one-year term of office.

tually began almost two years ago. The severe summer of 2012 began in 2011with lower than normal snowfall and rainfall, rapid spring meltdown and run-off and low summer precipitation and hot, sunny weather. With the low snowfall levels in 2012 and lower than normal spring and summer rainfall, the accumulated depletion of rivers, lakes, streams, wetlands and groundwater produced the Level 2 drought conditions and costly damage to crops, forests, hydro electric generation, tourism and recreation. Preliminary estimates of the losses to farmers on corn and soybean crops alone stand at $6 million. Hay and other forage crops along with apples and livestock also suffered severe losses. The WRT and political leaders across the County are still very concerned about the overall surface water, precipitation and groundwater levels despite the positive data and the move to Level 1. Once the ground freezes this winter, the recharging of groundwater supplies will be greatly reduced until the spring and this may threaten wells across the County. A normal or higher level of precipitation this winter and a slow, steady spring meltdown and run-off is required to enable groundwater and surface water levels to reach normal or higher levels. To ensure the County moves out of a Level 1 Drought altogether, and avoid falling into Level 2, or even worse Level 3, the area must experience normal or higher spring and summer rainfall and temperature patterns in 2013. The WRT continues to advise residents and businesses who rely on groundwater to regularly monitor well water levels and their water quality, volumes and flow rates.

ADHS to honour veterans by taking family items to Europe Teacher wants to hear from families interested in participating in ‘trinket exchange’ Co-op student
EMC news – Captained by Madame Nicole White, French teacher at Arnprior District High School, 40 high school students and five other supervisors will travel to northern France in early March 2013. This ‘Paris Trip’ is a venture the French department undergoes every second year with the intentions of implanting wordliness, language and culture into a select few eager students. This year White has commissioned a new addition to the trip, a twist that’s been dubbed ‘a trinket exchange’. The exchange will be in honour, in love and in appreciation of Canadian veterans who made the ultimate sacrifice. The students and teachers will visit the Bény-sur-Mer Cemetery near Caen, France. The young Canadian men buried there fought in the Second World War. The objective of this new initiative is to receive a trinket (a locket, a dried flower, a coin, or something pocketsized, really) from a family member, or family friend of a Canadian soldier buried in this cemetery near Caen. Each student or supervisor will take one, two, or even three of the trinkets with them in their travel luggage.
Upon arrival of the Canadian War Cemetery, each student will locate the grave of their respective family, place the trinket on the grave, take a picture, gather a vial of soil from the grave, and return the vial and the picture back to the family in Arnprior. The trinket, of course, will stay. White, the teachers, and students at Arnprior District High School acknowledge the contributions from Second World War veterans. Each year, veterans of the war meet with students to discuss the happenings of their services overseas. White emphasizes this “trinket exchange” is Arnprior District High School’s contribution to the community, in honour of those veterans. Private Raymond Arthur Wall was a rifleman in the Canadian Military during World War II. When a tank moves from one position to another in an urban setting, infantry patrols are required for an extra set of eyes. Wall was one of these patrollers beside a tank. Wall, just 25 years old, trod on a landmine, and perished in the line of battle. Wall’s nephew, Percy Wall, lives in Arnprior today. “When I received the photograph and the vial of sand from Nicole White, it was
CALLING ALL VETERANS
White asks that if you wish to participate in this token exchange, to contact her directly at Arnprior District High School, by calling 613-6233183, or by emailing whiten@ renfrew.edu.on.ca. The absolute latest White and her company of adventurers may receive these trinkets from the families of Arnprior to go to Europe is Feb. 25.
ADHS students will visit graves of Arnprior area servicemen killed in action in Europe. Among them is the tombstone of Raymond Arthur Wall, killed in May 1944 at the age of 25. He was the son of Patrick and Elizabeth Wall of Arnprior. Anyone interested in having the students take a family item to leave at the grave site should contact teacher Nicole White.

Gun registry waste of money: MP EMC news â€“ With the annual hunt now taking place across the Upper Ottawa Valley, many constituents have contacted Cheryl Gallantâ€™s office asking for an update on the current status of the long-gun registry, says the Renfrew-NipissingPembroke MP. While the long-gun registry has been scrapped and most of its data destroyed, it still has proponents, â€œso the fight is not over,â€? she said. â€œEarlier this year, with the election of a strong, stable majority Con-
servative government, we were finally able to pass legislation to scrap the long-gun registry,â€? she said. â€œI am pleased to confirm that as promised, as of Oct. 31, all the inaccurate, outof date data for non-restricted firearms that was collected for the registry has been destroyed for all of Canada except Quebec. â€œThe registry never solved a single murder,â€? maintained Gallant. â€œInstead it has been an enormous waste of police officersâ€™ time, diverting their efforts from
patrolling Canadian streets and doing traditional policing activities.â€? Gallant said that gun-control proponents worried that scrapping the longgun registry after so much has been spent would be a waste. â€œUnfortunately, that money is already wasted, and the registry costs kept growing,â€? she said, pointing out it costs about $100 million a year to operate â€œInstead of burning up more money, Canada can spend it on things that will actually do some good.â€?
Liberals take aim with letter blitz questioning Gallant, Tory policies
FOOD INSPECTION CUTS
In another letter, Liberal Party Critic for Agriculture and Agri-Food Frank Valeriote charged that Gallant supported this summer the â€œsignificant: cuts to the Canadian Food Inspection Agency in the omnibus budget bill. She should have opposed the cuts because â€œCanadians deserve to feel confident that their food supply is protected,
just as our farmers and ranchers deserve safe and stable business,â€? he wrote. â€œNo one wants to see Canadians get sick from eating tainted meat â€“ so why is Mrs. Gallant supporting cuts that remove vital resources from food safety professionals and creating a space where the industry is responsible for more and more of its self-regulation? â€œWaiting for Canadians to get sick is not a food safety strategy,â€? he wrote, referring to the XL Foods beef recall. â€œLiberals support our scientists and professionals who are on the front line of food safety and call on the Mrs. Gallant to do the same. Gallant does not respect Canadaâ€™s democracy OMNIBUS BILL ABUSIVE
Senator James Cowan, Leader of the Opposition in the Senate, wrote a letter to media accusing Gallant and the Conservative government of not respecting democracy because it is limiting debate on major policies by jamming them into one 443-page omnibus budget bill. The bill amends everything from the Navigable Waters Protection Act to the Canada Labour Code, he pointed out. â€œBy combining completely unrelated measures in a single massive bill, the Harper government is hoping that many of the provisions will not be noticed, or that Canadiansâ€™ outrage will be buried â€“ todayâ€™s news story, forgotten tomorrow.â€? Noting that in the U.S., 42 of the 50 states prohibit excessive omnibus legislation, he said when the Liberals proposed a motion to place reasonable limits on omnibus bills, â€œMrs. Gallant refused; she stood with her Conservative colleagues and voted that motion down.â€? Cowan said that â€œCanadians expect Parliamentarians to do their job â€“ to scrutinize legislation, to listen to Canadians, to seriously debate proposals, and to make changes where changes are necessary. That is how the best laws are made. â€œIt is time to deliver a message to the Conservative government: respect our democracy, and respect Canadians. No
more abusive omnibus bills.â€? TV ADS WASTEFUL
Liberal Party of Canada Treasury Board Critic John McCallum took aim at government advertising. â€œFor Canadians the return of new primetime TV this fall means more than new episodes of the Big Bang Theory and Amazing Race. It also means being treated to an exhaustive barrage of taxpayer-funded ads from the Government of Canada. â€œThatâ€™s not to say the government only advertises on TV, far from it,â€? he wrote.
See insert in todayâ€™s paper.
â€œBut high cost advertising space on these shows seem to be favourite ad spots for MP Cheryl Gallant and the Conservatives.â€? McCallum maintained that the Government of Canadaâ€™s total advertising budget two years ago was bigger than the entire Canadian beer industry combined. Taking the federal deficit in mind, the government must have borrowing $416 million to pay for government ads over the last five years, he estimated, adding that taxpayers are now paying about $23,000 per day just to cover the cost of interest.
