Generosity springs from the ashes Lifetime of good deeds prompts outpouring of support for fire victims John Carter john.carter@metroland.com

The Arnprior Chronicle Guide EMC wishes all our readers a happy and safe Christmas holiday.

Young and old alike will find something to enjoy inside our annual Christmas greetings supplement. Inside

EMC news – It didn’t take long for the community to rally in support of Ken Scissons and his tenants devastated by a nasty fire last Friday afternoon. The blaze just off the corner of McGonigal and John streets in Arnprior destroyed the home owned by Scissons and left five people homeless (see Page 31). It was the latest in a series of blows suffered by Scissons, who lost his son to illness last month. His daughter Sheila, who lost her dog in the fire, was one of those left homeless. The 83-year-old Scissons, who lives next door behind his small restaurant, Ken’s Kitchen, is himself suffering from heart problems. Fortunately, Arnprior firefighters were able to prevent the fire from spreading to his restaurant and on the other side to Scheel Communications. When word spread that the Scissons family has suffered another setback, and only 10 days before Christmas at that, several local businesses took up the cause. Leading the way was Arnprior Sears owner John Purdon. He not only volunteered to collect money at his store in the Arnprior Mall for the residents of the home hit by fire, but agreed to match all donations made last weekend. He reported that about $1,000 was contributed, meaning the fire victims will receive $2,000. And although the matching time period is over, the Sears outlet is continuing to accept donations right through this Sunday. The store, being in a high traffic area at the mall, is a natural spot to collect donations, he said. Purdon explained that he decided to collect and match donations because he and his staff felt for the plight of the victims, particularly as it’s so close to Christmas.

EMC news – Public school elementary teachers who walked out of class in Renfrew County last Thursday may hold another protest early in the new year. And this time, public high school teachers could join them. Both teacher groups have voted strongly in favour of holding a province-wide day of political action if the provincial government uses Bill 115 to impose new agreements. The government has threatened to do just

that, if deals are not reached locally by Dec. 31. That appears to be highly unlikely in most if not all school districts. No talks are scheduled before year’s end between teachers and Renfrew County public school board. Secondary school agreements reached in a few school districts have been scrapped after teachers complained the province was interfering by changing wording in the deals.

EMC events – It’s a community event that started out at the water cooler. Four years ago at Mel’s Flowers, Tracey Climo and Erica Slater were at work, talking about how they could help the less fortunate at Christmas, a time that can be difficult for many. “Our kids were older and we had the time,” said Climo. “We wanted to provide something for those who might not have a dinner to go to.”

Members of the Arnprior Fire Department, including Fire Chief John Okum (in plainclothes), work to knock down a Friday afternoon fire that destroyed a home on McGonigal Street. and Giant Tiger are also collecting money for the victims of the ďŹ re. Shopperâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Drug Mart customers can use a special bar code to make donations by adding an amount to their bill. The Opportunity Shop is also helping out by donating basic household items to the victims. Meanwhile, stories abound about Scissons providing meals to people who could only afford a coffee.

As one story goes, an elderly gentlemen used to come in regularly to the restaurant and order a meal, but while he tipped the waitress, he rarely had enough money to pay the bill. Scissons let it continue without complaint. One day the manâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s family heard the story and quietly paid for any food their father ate from then on. As one friend says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;he has a heart of gold.â&#x20AC;?

Furthermore, Scissons deserves a boost, Purdon said, noting, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Kenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a real nice guy â&#x20AC;Ś a salt of the earth type who has always taken care of people.â&#x20AC;? Purdon said it is evident that many people feel the same way about Scissons. When people saw the posters up around the mall and the Sears Facebook message saying his store was accepting donations, many came in to contribute, he said. He said he was surprised how many people donated signiďŹ cant amounts. One man came in Monday with $100 and several dropped off $50 on the weekend, he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People were very generous.â&#x20AC;? As for Purdon and his staff, â&#x20AC;&#x153;it is a good feeling that we were able to do it,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It feels pretty good.â&#x20AC;? Purdon contacted the Red Cross, which suggested the money be distributed through the Arnprior Legion. The Legion jumped at the chance to help, he said. So have other local businesses, including Fraser Towing. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ken is a long-time customer, a longtime friend,â&#x20AC;? said Jim Fraser, explaining why he has a donation jar out at his business. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He (Ken Scissons) has helped more people than you can shake a stick at.â&#x20AC;? Scissons has provided free meals for countless people and often put them up for the night, he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He has been like that (generous) his whole life. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a super guy.â&#x20AC;? Fraser said the loss of a home to ďŹ re is difďŹ cult to cope with at any time, but it is especially hard at Christmas. The donations at Fraserâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s will go toward helping Scissons deal with the loss of his property.

Council to consider all submissions on quarry rezoning John Carter

They will be open to the public, but people will not be able to take part in the discussion. That will be left for the public meeting later in the process. Township CEO Noreen Mellema and Howarth will co-ordinate the process and the planner will provide council with assessments of the reports by the company’s consultants and the township-ordered peer reviews. Miller Group had offered to have its experts at the meetings to answer questions, to the concern of some residents, who maintained the peer reviewers should then also be in attendance. However, councillors agreed that if they had any technical questions that Howarth couldn’t answer, they would get him to check with the appropriate experts. The planner had advised that it would get too confusing if council

john.carter@metroland.com

EMC news – Submissions provided by ‘experts’ working for a residents’ group opposing a rezoning of the Braeside Quarry will be among those considered by McNab-Braeside council. That was made clear in discussions Dec. 11 when McNab-Braeside councillors set up a series of meetings in the new year to go over the seven Miller Group studies and peer reviews looking into the effects on the area the rezoning and a permanent asphalt plant would have on the area. At its Planning Advisory Committee (PAC) meeting, council agreed it, will review the studies with planner Bruce Howarth and township staff in afternoon sessions prior to PAC meetings on Jan. 15 and Feb. 12.

had both sets of experts at the review meetings, so they agreed to have neither. Councillors agreed they should go over the application carefully and thoroughly. The application has been in the works for more than six years, but much of the earlier discussion over the studies is new to three of the councillor elected in 2010, including PAC chair Christine Blimkie. Blimkie caused a stir in the audience at the Dec. 11 meeting by saying she wasn’t sure if submissions by residence-funded experts, such as Wilf Ruland would be discussed at the council sessions. However, Haworth said that the Planning Act indicates that council should consider all submissions. The scheduled discussion of the topic attracted about a dozen people to the PAC meeting and close to three dozen to the Dec. 4 council meeting.

Miller Group consultant Gary Bell provided council with an update Dec. 11, reviewing the application’s municipal and provincial processes. The company will hold a public open house to explain its plans and answer questions. The township will hold at least one public meeting to hear public input about the plan. Residents are also welcome to submit opinions and questions to Howarth and council. Information about the application, including copies of the reports and peer reviews, are available on the township’s website and on CDs. It will be much like the township’s official plan review, noted Mayor Mary Campbell. Mellema noted she has already begun to receive a flood of emails. All submissions will become part of the public record, accessible to everybody, she said. At the end of the Dec. 4 council

meeting, several members of the public expressed concern that the process was weighted against opponents of the application and environmental protection. A common fear was that council would be putting too much stake on what the Miller experts said and too little on their own peer reviewers. Campbell told them that council is not hiding anything and their anxiety is premature. David Talbot asked what constraints and criteria council was working with in making a decision. Can it say “we really don’t want this here,” he asked. Campbell replied that council has to follow the process set out by the province and weigh all submissions including the applicant’s studies and peer reviews. Council’s decision can be appealed to the Ontario Municipal Board.

Town’s drainage work delay put Pegasus development on hold John Carter john.carter@metroland.com

EMC news – McNab-Braeside council wants drainage work promised by Arnprior completed before the Pegasus development is allowed to move forward. The majority of council agreed that due process should be followed and rejected a plea

by the owners of the proposed Olympia Home subdivision in Arnprior along the township border to speed up its registration. Bill Buchanan, representing the developer, had asked council Dec. 4 that construction and sale of homes be expedited with the promise the drainage work to be done by the town would be tackled later. After preliminary discussion at the Dec.

4 council meeting, councillors agreed they needed more time to consider the matter and continued the debate at their Dec. 11 Planning Advisory Committee meeting. That discussion concluded with a vote in favour of council sticking to its guns and insisting the drainage work be done before the township gives the project its blessing. The decision was upheld at council’s meet-

ing on Dec. 18. Buchanan was allowed to address council at its Dec. 4 meeting despite being too late to be an official delegation. He asked to be heard Dec. 3 and council decided it would make every allowance it could to listen to him. See COMPANY, Page 7 R0011824311_1220

Meanwhile, Elementary Teachers Federationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one-day rotating strikes continue unabated with at least three districts affected each day for the past two weeks. Public elementary school teachers were scheduled to walk out in Upper Canada schools, including Pakenham, today (Thursday). However, unlike in most school districts, the Upper Canada board said it would keep the schools open without teachers to help parents who donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have alternate child care. The Catholic District School Board of Eastern Ontario sent out a release stressing that the walkout does not affect its 40 schools, which were scheduled to be â&#x20AC;&#x153;open and fully operationalâ&#x20AC;? today. The walkouts touched down in Renfrew County Dec. 13, closing all public elementary schools in Renfrew County. With weather-related â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;snow daysâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Monday last week and Monday and Tuesday this week, it meant that most students have missed four of the last eight days of school. ETFO local president Allison Ryan and Ontario president Sam Hammond were among officials who made the rounds last Thursday to support their members and make themselves visible to the general public and the media at 14 locations in the county. About 600 ETFO-member teachers, educational assistants, school support counselors and occasional teachers took part in the protest. PICKETS AT WZ

Ryanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s four-stop day began at Walter Zadow Public School in Arnprior, where striking teachers from that school as well as A.J. Charbonneau and McNab Public were greeted by many honks and thumbsup from passing drivers. The tour continued at Queen Elizabeth and Central public schools in Renfrew, while other officials visited Renfrew Collegiate Intermediate School and Cobden Public School where teachers were also picketing. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re happy to be standing up for our rights. We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to be here (picketing), but we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to see a collective agreement imposed upon us,â&#x20AC;? said Ryan, referring to the bill that the Ontario legislature passed in September. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What Bill 115 did was take away our democratic right to negotiate collective agreements freely with our employer,â&#x20AC;? she added. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Unfortunately, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a misconception in the public that this is about money. This isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t about money. This is about our rights, and the fact Bill 115 puts our government above the law and takes our rights away.â&#x20AC;? Ryan, who has been a teacher for 12 years, says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;our biggest concern is that collective bargaining with our employer hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been allowed to happen. Bill 115 came out and said youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to nego-

tiate under these parameters, and these are the only parameters that you have. And those things do include our wages, our sick leave, our benefits, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about more than that. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about the loss of our ability to negotiate.â&#x20AC;? Queen Elizabeth Public School teachers echoed those sentiments. Kaia Paddock, whose mother Lila was the ETFO local president for more than a decade, said she was on the picket line â&#x20AC;&#x153;to tell the government that Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not happy theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re taking away my rights to collective bargaining, and that we put students first. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I put my (own two) children first and my students by teaching them to fight, and not to be bullied, by the government.â&#x20AC;? Queen Elizabeth Public School teachers carried placards with the stopbill115. ca website below the words: â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you work in Ontario, this is your fight.â&#x20AC;? Other placards read: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Negotiate, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t legislate,â&#x20AC;? or â&#x20AC;&#x153;Respect collective bargaining rights.â&#x20AC;? Striking teacher Jenifer Wroe said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re out here so the bill can be repealed. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not about all the stuff weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re hearing.â&#x20AC;? Colleague Anne Lefebvre said: â&#x20AC;&#x153;The fight is about democracy, and nothing else.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;I hope the public hears that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re doing this for our members, and for all unions, because the government has started with teachers, and who knows where theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to go next,â&#x20AC;? said Ryan. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to continue with our work-to-rule campaign and we will investigate the possibility of stepping things up by adding to the list of what our members wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do.â&#x20AC;? At present, ETFO members are refusing to participate in staff meetings, professional development and extra-curricular activities. Meanwhile, the ETFO and the Ontario Secondary School Teachers Federation (OSSTF) are waiting to see if Education Minister Laurel Broten will impose collective agreements after the stipulated deadline of Dec. 31 for unions and their employers. POLITICAL PROTEST

If she does, Ryan says ETFO has also already decided that there will be a political protest to that action. The ETFO, says Ryan, already plans to protest at the Ontario Liberal Partyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s late-January leadership convention in Toronto. Ottawa area teachers held a protest Tuesday at a Liberal leadership debate in the capital. A solid majority of public elementary teachers across Ontario has already voted in favour of a one-day political protest in the event that the Minister of Education â&#x20AC;&#x153;uses draconian provisions of Bill 115 to shut down legal strikes or impose a collective agreement.â&#x20AC;? Secondary school teachers were voting early this week on the same issue.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;ETFO teachers, occasional teachers, education support personnel, professional support personnel, and designated early childhood educators are saying they will lead the protest against Bill 115 if the education minister denies them their fundamental rights,â&#x20AC;? said Hammond. Ninety-two percent of over 46,000 members who cast a ballot voted in favour of a one-day political protest. Voting was conducted online Dec. 2-4. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This vote affirms once again that it is our members who determine their actions through democratic processes, contrary to Minister Brotenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s derogatory comments about union leaders this week,â&#x20AC;? said Hammond. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is unfortunate that her government crafted a law that allows no judicial appeal in the provincial courts - a tactic rarely if ever used in democracies. Our members have been left with little recourse but to choose a political protest. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Bill 115 is an affront to the fundamental rights not only of educators but of all Ontarians.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Given the rigid parameters of Bill 115, the minister has left us no other option but to send her a message via strike action,â&#x20AC;? said Marg Merpaw, president of Upper Canada Teacher Local. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are calling on the Minister to restore local autonomy and stop destroying a bargaining process that has worked for decades.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is unconscionable that a government would use a draconian law like Bill 115 to sweep away the democratic rights of our members,â&#x20AC;? added Diane Dewing, president of Upper Canada Occasional Teacher Local. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Right from the start, the minister took a â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;take it or leave it approachâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; to talks. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not bargaining, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an abuse of power that all Ontarians should be concerned about.â&#x20AC;? While not holding one-day walkouts, public secondary school teachers were into their second week of shunning all extra-curricular activities to protest Bill 115. As a result, all ADHS Redmen basketball and volleyball games scheduled for the past two weeks have been cancelled. Meanwhile, Ontario Progressive Conservative Education Critic Lisa MacLeod has again urged Education Minister Laurel Broten to invoke Bill 115 to force an end to the one-day roatating walkouts. She said it is disappointing that the Liberals passed Bill 115, only to â&#x20AC;&#x153;ignore it when it is needed.â&#x20AC;? The government is allowing union leaders to â&#x20AC;&#x153;make a mockery of the education system at the expense of Ontario students and their families,â&#x20AC;? she added. She also suggested that some of the provincial Liberal leadership candidates are undermining Bill 115. CUPE, which is supporting the teachersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; fight against Bill 115, has applauded comments by leadership candidate Gerard Kennedy that talks between teachers and school boards should be allowed to continue past the Dec. 31 deadline.

Company urges council to help it expedite subdivision work Continued from Page 5

Buchanan told council that the subdivision agreement had been signed with the Town of Arnprior, but one of the conditions, a cleanup and restoration of the Campbell municipal drain, had yet to be met. The developer had committed to paying for the work, but it was the town’s responsibility to ensure it was completed, he explained. There’s not really much more the company can do at this point to alleviate any drainage concerns other than promise the work will eventually be done, he said. “We’ve provided them (town) with the money (to fund the work).” Buchanan urged council to take that as meeting the drainage conditions and sign off on the project. The company can’t officially register the

subdivision until the township agrees that it is satisfied all conditions are met. Olympia Homes is anxious to finally get homes completed and sold, as the subdivision has been in the works for more than five years. The subdivision was scheduled to be serviced in full last week, and with 19 foundations in ground, “we would like to continue,” Buchanan said. If the subdivision isn’t registered this year, it could pose “serious problems” for the development, he said, noting 15 lots have already been sold. He said the township could be confident the work would be done, as the money has been set aside for it. It’s not as if the company is going to stop work on the subdivision, he said. “We’re here for the long haul.”

However, council felt that the promising to do the work wasn’t sufficient. The condition was that the town hire an engineer to review the drainage report and then clean out the drainage ditch and culvert, councillors noted. Deputy Mayor Christine Blimkie said council’s main duty is to its residents and taking someone’s word a condition is going to be fulfilled at some later time isn’t doing that. She expressed surprise that at least 19 foundations had already been built before the project has received final approval. “You’ll have to address that to the town,” responded county planner Bruce Haworth when asked how this could have happened. It’s Arnprior’s responsibility to subdivision agreement, noted Campbell. Councillors noted its residents in the Vanjamur-Russet-Campbell Drive area had com-

plained about drainage runoff from subdivisions in the area several times before. Mayor Mary Campbell said the decision should be based on precedent, as the subdivision shouldn’t be treated any better or worse “than any of our own developments.” She noted that drainage is usually “a hot issue for us” when it comes to approving rural estate lots. “If there’s any chance that might impact our residents we need to do our due diligence,” she said. Council should also be alert so not to put the township is a position where it could be liable for damages, she added. Coun. Bob Campbell noted that if the work isn’t done before summer, the area will likely suffer flooding in the spring. With files by Sherry Haaima

A true community gathering Continued from front

R0011814928

Fast forward to 2012 and the women, along with a slew of volunteers, are busily preparing for the fourth annual dinner Christmas Day community supper. “It grows a little each year,” said Tracey Climo. The community and businesses come through in a big way each year for the dinner, said Climo. This year, Arnprior-Braeside-McNab Seniors at Home is helping facilitate a delivery service for shut-in seniors. The organization is providing drivers who will deliver dinners to the seniors and others who can’t get out. The event draws a mixed crowd every year, said Climo. From families who might not have the means to provide a full dinner to a couple in their 70s who just moved to town to a senior who finds him or herself on their own Christmas day – there is a place for everyone at this table. “It’s a true community gathering,” said Climo. And no volunteer will be turned away either. “I don’t care if there are 80 volunteers,” said Climo. “If people show up, we’ll find something for them to do.” “It’s really nice because we’ve gotten to know some of the people over the years,” said Climo. Organizers were a little worried the first year that people would be hesitant to come out to the event, but their fears soon proved unfounded as diners, volunteers and supporters were quick to come forward. “The funds are raised by local members of the town and it is completely non-profit even the cooked leftovers are taken to the mission in Ottawa as there is no organization in Arnprior that accepts cooked food. The remaining noncooked food goes to organizations like the Fountain and the food bank,” said Climo. The supper will be held at the Nick Smith Centre Tuesday, Dec. 25. Doors open at 4:30 p.m. with dinner being served at 5 p.m. For more information, call Erica at 613623-7016 or Tracey 613-6237016.

Wishing you peace and understanding this Christmas season Christmas has come just in time. With all the violence, rancour and loss affecting us at all levels, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time to take a breather and collect ourselves before taking on the many challenges of a new year. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s difficult not to feel sadness after the events of the past few weeks. Most disturbing is the senseless rampage that snuffed out so many innocent lives in Newtown, Connecticut last week. What a waste. The 28 deaths have re-awakened the debate about gun control in the U.S. The massacre has also fostered a new appreciation for teachers, as it was their courageous protection of stu-

dents that prevented the death toll from being much higher. We could do with a revival of that mutual admiration here in Ontario. While Canada doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have gun violence to the extent they do in the U.S., we shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get too complacent. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve just marked the 23rd anniversary of the Ecole Polytechique shooting of 14 female students and shootings in Toronto regularly take innocent lives. And itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not just guns we should be worrying about. In this area, the courts have been dealing with two high profile impaired driving charges. In one, young twins lost a mother; in the other

three young children lost a father. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something to keep in mind when imbibing this holiday season. Better to find a safe way to get home than to risk being next yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s court news. While weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll never rid the world completely of deranged people bent on destruction or drunken idiots who get behind the wheel, we can take steps to better treat their mental disorders; or failing that, limiting their access to guns and cars. And it shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to take a tragedy for the public and the government to appreciate teachers and vice versa. We have plenty of healing to do as we ap-

proach the new year. Strong leadership and mutual understanding needs to rise to the fore for meaningful progress to be made. However, for the next week or so, take a short break if you can from the onerous duties and dilemmas and disasters that face us far too often. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time to instead focus on faith, family and friends. By concentrating on whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really important, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be much better mentally prepared to wipe away the sadness and face the future with a renewed optimism. May your Christmas break provide you that blessing.

Ultimate tragedy of Newtown would be no change to gun laws To the Editor: It is very difficult to get oneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s head around the recent tragedy in Newtown, Connecticut. It was senseless to say the least that leaves another scar on the social and political landscape of America. But we in Canada are not immune from this kind of â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;insanityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, so one ought to be careful how critical we are of what has occurred there. Having said this, there is an issue in the United States regarding guns and control of them that we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have here. That is the issue of having â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;a right to bear armsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. In Canada, we have the privilege of owning them providing we are duly licensed and the type of firearms fit certain criteria as to being restricted or prohibited. In the United States there is the belief that Americans have the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;right to bear themâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. That is the thrust of my letter. What does the right to bear arms actually mean? In addressing this question, one must go back some 236 years to 1776. The second amendment to the United States Constitution gave states the right to raise and maintain their own militias. These militias are army formations under the control of the state governments. We know them as National Guard units. They operate, as our own military units do, as â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;aids to ... or support to the civil powerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. State militias can be called up in support of national interests as required, or as we often see, on orders from state governments. In these instances one does not see individual Americans marching down the streets bearing arms.

Individuals are outside of the laws that created state militias. A notable exception is the wild west practice of law police officials deputizing citizens into posses, but that practice was never a substitute for state militias. So where is America at with the belief that Americans have the right to bear arms? Over time, this concept has been hi-jacked by organizations like the National Rifle Association, and others, that this is a â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;rightâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. So there is a proliferation of weapons on the American landscape that permits assault weapons, etc. that have no real purpose outside of military or law enforcement. While it may be true that â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;guns don`t kill ... people doâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, it is time to redefine the second amendment and to restrict these kinds of weapons so that the possibility of further insanity can be minimized. I doubt if this will come to pass. The political minefield is strewn with ignorance and a lack of political will. That is the ultimate tragedy of Newtown, Connecticut. It is a sad commentary to suggest this to be true, but alas it is a probability that these innocent children and those who tried to protect them might have died in vain. One would think that a change in dogma, etc. might occur, but I doubt it. I suggest this because ĂŹf there is a God, he must love ignorant people more than pragmatic saner folk. The reason is `because he made so many of them! Thomas Charbonneau Arnprior

Think twice about a Christmas pup lar, largely tax-free industry, reliant upon supply and demand. As an emergency rescue responder at a puppy mill, I am haunted by the images that I witnessed: the profound hopelessness in the eyes and body language of every dog, the result of immeasurable cruelty and abuse. That experience set me on a life-altering course to raise public consciousness to the hell that is puppy mills.

The only way to end this cruel industry is to stop supporting it. This Christmas, if you are considering a family companion, visit local rescues and shelters and offer a deserving dog a chance to live, and at the same time, help end the atrocity of puppy mills.

To the editor: For many, the holiday season comes with the irresistible urge to purchase that cute puppy in the window. In stark contrast, January to March are the busiest months in rescues and shelters when countless dogs are dumped, and many healthy dogs are euthanized due to lack of space.

Conservative MP blind to F-35 fiasco To the Editor: The fiscal incompetence and complete mismanagement of Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s largest military procurement since World War II has now been fully exposed. MP Cheryl Gallant and the Conservative Party need to be held accountable for their total mishandling of the F-35. Two years ago they told Canadians that the government would replace our aging fleet of CF-18s with a sole-sourced contract for F-35s for only $9 billion - now thanks to an audit from KPMG we know the true cost of the F35s will exceed $46 billion. The government said the F-35 was the only plane that could meet our needs - now they admit that other planes could. They always maintained that considering other options was irresponsible and they sole-sourced the contract-

now they are looking at other planes. They said there was a contract - now they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t. This is how an incompetent government turns a $13 billion Liberal surplus in 2006 into a $142 billion accumulated Conservative deficit by 2012.The government lied, stonewalled, broke all the rules of procurement, evaded every safeguard, and attacked the credibility and patriotism of all those who dared challenge it. It asked voters to re-elect it using fraudulent numbers. Mrs. Gallant needs to stop the cheerleading and start asking serious questions about how the government is spending your hard-earned tax dollars. She canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t serve her constituents with blinders on. John McKay, MP Liberal Party of Canada Defence Critic

A Christmas tale that is not funny in the least EMC lifestyle - We have two very special ornaments to hang on the tree every year. They belonged to my wife’s grandmother. Nothing flashy or expensive or particularly attractive, even. Kind of gaudy, to be honest. But they are old and they mean a lot to us. More to me than her, I suspect. Maybe because I don’t have any ornaments handed down. We don’t have those two ornaments anymore. We have them and about a million little pieces that used to comprise them. Yes, our two boys managed to bust both just days before Christmas, in the year of our Lord 2012. The little geezers. It happened as all catastrophes happen. A series of misfortunate steps that, in and of themselves, seemed innocuous at the time. (No allusions here to the flaming popcorn pot of ’06 that died on the front lawn.) Mrs. Overdunn was out of the house that afternoon, always an indication that something terribly wrong is about to happen. I verbally yanked said geezers away from the video games; reminded them that the non-virtual world still exists and that some entities within it, such as the dang tree, needed watering. They got the jug of water, as per their usual duty. One of them, Overdunn the Younger,

Derek Dunn Overdunn climbed under the tree to begin feeding the base. Not thinking this a task requiring adult supervision – how much harm can a jug of water cause next to an electrical outlet? – I resumed the allimportant work of checking my Facebook account. There was a bit of rustling in the corner, nothing like the sound Clark Griswold heard from the tree moments before a squirrel destroyed his house. And yet, the next thing I heard is the tree crashing down on my precious record player. Looking over, it took a moment for me to realize that the universe has not simply shifted vertically, but that the tree is actually parallel with the floor. It was actually on the

E T A R B E L #E E V % S ´ R .EW9EA AT4OSH

floor, to be more exact; with the crash of who knows how many bulbs and ornaments dancing in my head for an infinite moment. The other one, Overdunn the Elder, has the fear of God splayed across his face. His hand is clutching a pathetic branch. That’s when both boys witness the room fill with expletives the likes of which I care not to repeat. It wasn’t my finest hour. I rush over, irrationally thinking if I lift the tree really, really quickly, somehow it would fix everything that has gone terribly wrong. Surprise. It didn’t work. A bunch of ornaments remained broken. At this point I dare not consider if her grandmothers’ were among the ruins. Being the father, master of my house, and again the one in charge when Mom’s not around, I order the boys to do this and that: you, get the broom and dust pan; you, feel bad for everything that is happening, and get out from under the tree while you do it. After up-righting the tree I order the Elder to hold it steady while I go down to survey the damage. I pulled the dress off and pushed around a few needles. “What would 22-year-old me make of this.” It doesn’t look good. Mean-

while, the Younger’s back with a cloth to sop up water. He busies himself while I listen to a heart beating outside a chest. Poor little bugger. I go back to the top of the tree, hold it up and start eyeing my record player. Did I mention it is precious to me? Somehow the lid was closed, which seemed a good thing at the time. Both hands move to half embrace Precious. She didn’t deserve any of this.

By this time the angel fears for her immortal life. How is it she didn’t simply fly off, seek to garnish a safer tree at the neighbour’s? That’s when the tree came down a second time. On top of me. So I guess I broke the fall, a bit. I am in a Stuart McLean story over here. Again the bulbs are bursting. By this time the angel fears for her immortal life. How is it she didn’t simply fly off, seek to garnish a safer tree at the neighbour’s? By the end of it - about a five-minute episode that turned our placid domesticity upside down, twice - the three

of us have retreated to opposite parts of the house. Stuff like this doesn’t happen on Facebook while scrolling past photos of pets sporting Santa hats and quotes from the Buddha. I’m safe in my refuge on the couch. He was right, though, Buddha was. He was right about how all suffering stems from desire, and that all desire is the longing for permanency in an ever-changing and breakable world. The other one was right, too. The one whose birthday we are preparing to celebrate in this, the year of our Lord 2012. Don’t worship material stuff like Christmas trees, and precious Precious the Record player. Even ornaments handed down from a wonderful old lady I was thoroughly smitten with and the love of my life adored beyond recognition. Things break. Things change. She’s gone. That was something I needed to share with the Younger, sobbing in our kitchen. “It wasn’t your fault alone, little buddy. These things happen,” I said, having gotten him to turn my direction to cradle in my arms. “They’re just ornaments. Let’s cherish each other and our relationship and next Christmas we can laugh at all this.” He managed to raise those gorgeous blue eyes to me, made even more brilliant by

the water pooled in them. I should have quoted Buddha or Jesus at that moment, but couldn’t muster a thing. “We won’t laugh this year, of course,” I said. “This year there’s nothing funny about it at all.” It won me a smile, at least. As for the top being down on my record player when I specifically recall leaving it up? That was the Elder’s doing. Again, as I’ve said many times before, he’s a better man than me. He must have slammed it shut before the first crash. Because when I went back to check on her, lifting the lid, I saw the true weight of the calamity. A bunch more bulbs were busted up inside her. Even a clear P.E.I. bulb, which represents the island Mrs. Overdunn and I left together many moons ago was there. A clear bulb that used to be filled with red, red sand. Sand that as we speak is working its way in Precious’ private parts. To my boys: I’m sorry. I was intemperate. I let my growing sentimentalism, being old, get the better of me. I’ll try to remember that this physical world which we meet in is forever in flux, that it is unpredictable and temporal, and that we should appreciate every moment in the moment, especially at Christmas. Oh, and still not funny.

To the Editor: I watched Ken Burns’ four-hour documentary film on the 10-year dust bowl that swept the flat U.S. mid-west grain belts states, particularly Oklahoma and Texas in the 1930s. It’s a story of the greatest man-made ecological disaster in American history. Millions of acres of buffalo grass, that held moisture in a drought, were plowed under and grain was grown. When the price of wheat fell, farmers tore up more grassland and planted more wheat, and when the price fell again they planted even more wheat so they could pay their bills. Finally there was so much wheat no one wanted it even at the going rate of 30-cents a bushel. When drought inevitably came, coupled with the ever-present prairie winds, it rearranged the landscape because it was all prone to blow away. It’s heartbreaking to see how the families

suffered, especially the mothers and the young children as they tried to cope with dust that blew through everything. Oh, we are so fortunate! But there is also a lot of sadness during this Christmas season. A group of volunteers want every child in Ottawa to open a gift on Christmas Day.A spokesperson for the Toy Mountain organization said 16,000 children in Ottawa wouldn’t get a toy this Christmas if it wasn’t for their work and the community support. “Christmas is all about children,” he said on the news. “Their eyes light up when opening a gift and their smiles are so wonderful to see.” It’s wonderful seeing happy children. But they need a lot more than just a gift at Christmas. Christmas is not about children; adults made it that way.

This Ivory Gull drew crowds of admirers to Arnprior.

www.intunechiro.ca

A rare visitor from the Far North EMC lifestyle - One of the most exciting moments in bird-watching is stumbling across a bird that strayed from some distant place. It can be a species that predictably wanders (such as a Scissor-tailed Flycatcher from the southwestern U.S.A.) or one that appears by happenstance. Last Saturday I encountered the latter. I was scanning Lake Madawaska for ducks from the end of Baskin Drive when I noticed a brown lump on the ice (the lake was partly frozen). Through my spotting scope I could see it was a sleeping duck, but something didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t look right. I realized the bird was dead, likely frozen overnight during its sleep. I left to search for hawks in fields between Arnprior and Pakenham, and decided to check the lake from the southeast side. I relocated the now very distant duck and was surprised to see a white bird pecking it. Due to distance and terrible

The gull remained in view, and eventually flew toward Highway 29 where it may have flown into the Ottawa 50-km birding circle, delighting those who passionately keep an Ottawa list. If it indeed crossed the line, it would be Ottawaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first Ivory Gull. By dark the gull was still sitting on the ice. However, birders arriving at dawn could not find it, and the Ivory Gull was not relocated. I hope it reappears one more time, that being on Boxing Day during our annual Christmas Bird Count.

Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t fall victim to wildlife collisions this winter

Winter arrives Friday morning EMC lifestyle â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard to believe, what with all the freezing rain and snow in the past 10 days, but fall isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t quite over yet. Winter officially arrives in these parts at 6:12 a.m. this Friday, Dec. 21. If the forecast is correct, winter will come in like a lion. Ice pellets are predicted for Thursday night into Friday morning, followed by a full day of snow. So drive carefully and stay close to home if possible. The good news is that at least from Friday on, the days will be getting shorter.

OPP still nabbing impaired drivers in RIDE checks Renfrew OPP, who attended the rollover, say they will continue to conduct RIDE spot checks frequently during all hours of the day and night in attempts to deter people from drinking and driving. During the first three weeks of the festive RIDE campaign, officers from the detachment conducted 56 RIDE spot checks. With just over two weeks left in the campaign, the OPP are reminding everyone to plan ahead when heading out for holiday season social outings that involve alcohol consumption. “Arrange for a taxi or designated driver ahead of time, or ar-

Murder charge laid in Calabogie case Ottawa man charged with first degree murder

EMC news – The OPP are warning people that thieves are busy during the holiday season looking for an opportunity to quickly steal items. Several thefts have occurred during the past week in the area, including jewelry and guitar from a residence, Christmas gifts from both an Arnprior home, gifts from the trunk of a car and an i-pod touch from an arena. “When you are out remember to lock your vehicle,” urge police. “Leaving valuables inside an unlocked vehicle is almost

Picard appeared in the Ontario Court of Justice Dec. 13 on a charge of first degree murder. The victim was reported missing to the Ottawa Police by family members on June 18. His vehicle was later recovered by police. On Nov. 11, members of the Renfrew OPP detachment responded to a call by hunters

The same goes for homes, with presents on display under a tree, they add. “Make sure your doors and windows are locked, and if you have an alarm that it is activated when you are away,” police advise. “Please help deter crime, and report suspicious people and vehicles to the OPP immediately at 1-888-3101122.”

CRAM-CRUISER

The Renfrew OPP Auxiliary Unit hosted another successful ‘Cram-the-Cruiser’ food drive event this past Saturday. With cruisers positioned outside Metro and No Frills in Renfrew, they collected more than 12 cruisers filled with food, and more than $5,600 for the Renfrew Food Bank. The OPP Auxiliary Unit extends a big thank you to the entire community who donated.

Fraudsters thwarted by Arnprior woman EMC news – In the same week the OPP issued a warning for people to be cautious of fraudsters at this time of year, scam artists were attempting to separate an Arnprior senior citizen with her money. The woman was called Dec. 12 by a man pretending to be her grandson, saying he was in trouble with police. He urged her to send him $1,900 for bail so he could get out of jail. The woman had the sense to check with her son to see if the story was true. When her son phoned his son to see if he was in jail, he found out that it was all a hoax. Shortly afterwards, the

scammer phoned again to ask for another $2,200 to pay for a lawyer. The caller was told to take a hike. Many people, mostly senior citizens, from Arnprior and area have received the ‘emergency’ scam call recently. At least a couple of people have been conned and sent money. If you receive a call of this nature, the OPP ask you discuss it with someone you trust prior to sending cash, or call the police. Report phone frauds to the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre at 1-888-495-8501 or www. antifraudcentre.ca.

HAY, FRAUD

A local farmer advertising hay for sale online was recently targeted with a fraudulent cheque, report Renfrew OPP. An unknown person offered to buy some hay and sent a cheque to the seller. The seller attended the bank to verify the cheque prior to sending the hay. The bank advised the account the cheque was issued from had been closed for several years. No loss was suffered, but police say it serves as a good reminder to sellers to be careful when dealing with strangers online, and with cheques.

EMC lifestyle - Yet another Grade 12 student at Arnprior District High School has showcased the finished product of an artistic endeavour. Hannah Martin joins Connor Schriver in this year’s entrepreneurial hall of fame with her new company, Hannah Martin Photography. Before the company was even a twinkle of imagination, there stood a hobby, however a popularized hobby, which works in her favour. “My first quality photo was taken years ago. It was of a silhouette,” said Martin. “A black object with the sunset behind it. That’s when I realized my love for photography and for sunlight.” Like most photographers do, Martin has her own special quirk that makes her photos unique. It’s a tactic of hers that allows for the dazzling of a dry old family portrait. “An interesting fact is that part of my ‘photography style’ is I love to incorporate sunbeams and sun flares to add a unique photography aspect to my pictures,” said Martin. Hannah Martin Photography began as a way to raise funds for Martin’s trip to Africa, just last year. A trip of that expanse requires significant funds, funds youth might not always have access to. It soon became apparent to Martin when she mastered her art, she could then collect her due funds. After that, the company “made itself.” Based off of Facebook, Martin’s page has nearly 600 likes, emblazoned with tons of her beautified clientele. She provides photography for all types of orders, small or tall: family portraits, head shots, engagement shoots, or artsy concoctions of sun flares and themes of the fairy-tale persuasion. At only 17, it’s once again a testament to youthful initiative and innovation. Creative new ways to save up for post-secondary, other than working at a fast food

After that, the “fabulous” U12 Petite B, the “awesome” Tween A and “our incredible” U16 Junior B all won gold in their championship games, Bellefleur reports. “Great job Girls.” She says the tournament was “a great success due to the big hearts that all these families have to put in a hand to help. Thank you.” The association also issues a big thank you to the town of Arnprior and surrounding communities for helping it with a bottle drive on Nov. 24. “We wish you a safe and a wonderful Merry Christmas.”

Aces Day bring support to Arnprior food bank Peter Clark peter.clark@metroland.com

PETER CLARK/METROLAND

The Upper Ottawa Valley AA Aces held their first Aces Day Saturday at the Nick Smith Centre, and support went to the Arnprior and District Food Bank. From left are Harold Neuman of the Arnprior and District Food Bank; Minor Midget AA Aces Konnor Levesque, Coleman Orenstien and Curtis Fraser; and Kathy Tonkin and Michelle Girdwood of the food bank.

EMC sports - The Arnprior and District Food Bank was the big winner when the Upper Ottawa Valley AA Aces Hockey Association hosted it first Aces Day at the Nick Smith Centre Saturday. The Aces used Aces Day as an opportunity to give back to the communities that support its players during the season. Seven games were played. The Major Bantam and Major Atom Aces teams took on the Rideau St. Lawrence Kings; The Minor Midget, Minor Peewee and Major Peewee teams challenged the Seaway Valley Rapids while the Ottawa Sting supplied the opposition for the Major Midget and Minor Bantam Aces. Friends and extended families of the Aces

squads plus the visiting teams and general public were asked to bring non-perishable food items and support of the cause. “It’s a most difficult time of the year for the food bank to help people out, and leave them with a few dollars to buy some presents,” Kathy Tonkin of the Arnprior food bank said. “There are people out there that support a family. How good is that!” she added. “The support from the community is greatly appreciated,” Tonkin added. “Heating costs and clothing to keep your children warm (is more costly), so more and more working couples are turning to food banks because they can’t make ends meet.” It is also tough on the elderly, many of whom need the food bank’s assistance because they can’t afford to do much on their pensions, Tonkin said.

New adaptive skiing facility opens at Calabogie Peaks ski resort Peter Clark peter.clark@metroland.com

The centre is also home to a fiveday Winter Sports Clinic for injured military veterans and Community Living Days for disabled adults in Renfrew County. Special features include two wheelchair ramps, a large washroom equipped with adult change facilities and a 300-square foot basement storage space for skis, sitskis and other specialized adaptive equipment. Participating in the official ribbon cutting were Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke MP Cheryl Gallant, Calabogie Adaptive Snowsports operations director Bob Gilmour, program director Clay Dawdy, Jim Colterman of the Canadian Association for Disabled Skiing National Capital Division and Calabogie Peaks Resort president Paul Murphy. “CADS is a national volunteer based organization that assists individuals with disabilities to lead richer and fuller lives through active participation in recreational and competitive snowsports,” Dawdy explained. “The CADS National Capital Division leads a program at Calabogie Peaks that teaches about 75 students and military personnel in various programs with over 65 volunteers. “We have changed the name from adaptive skiing to adaptive snowsports. These guys are doing so much more than just skiing,” Dawdy said. Dawdy said it’s the best such facility in eastern Canada.

“Maybe in Canada. Maybe in North America.” The CADS Sunday program at the Peaks is entering its ninth season. When it started out in 2004, it had eight skiers and 12 volunteers. Now there are more than 40 skiers assisted by 65 volunteers. This year’s eighth Community Living Day in February will feature 25 to 30 disabled skiers from Arnprior and Renfrew, joined by some 30 instructors. The Winter Sports Clinic (WSC) for injured military personnel has been held for each of the past two years in conjunction with Soldier On. Calabogie is currently negotiating with the Wounded Warrior organization and True Patriot Love to hold a WSC in February for injured discharged and retired veterans and their families. Gallant announced the Centre of Excellence has received $150,000 funding from the federal government. It is broken down into two amounts of $75,000, one for retrofitting existing washrooms and creating a new washroom. The second $75,000 is to add to the recreation lodge an accessible entrance and equipment storage room. “We are very fortunate to have this in the Valley,” Gallant said. “This will improve the lives of people who use the facility,” said Greater Madawaska Mayor and Renfrew County Warden Peter Emon. “It is an excellent facility.” “This could not be done without the volunteers,” Murphy said of the program. “People come out on Sundays and are impressed with what they see.” Murphy accepted a $30,000 cheque on behalf of the Peaks Resort and Conference Centre for CADS from the Canadian Association for Disabled Skiing National Capital Division. President Bernie Simpson and treasurer Tom Abernethy made the presentation. Gilmour helped bring together a similar

year-old son with severe cerebral palsy to ski. “With adaptive equipment, for once in our lives, everyone’s equal,” Gilmour said. Dawdy noted that Gilmour, and WSC chair for injured soldiers Dan Fleming were honoured with Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medals this week.

Give the gift of sports at Christmas R0011818512

EMC sports – KidSport Canada has launched the Give the Gift of Sport, an annual holiday season fundraising campaign. Running through Jan. 15, the drive gives people across Canada the opportunity to support KidSport. Give the Gift of Sport is a national online fundraising campaign that will help get children off the sidelines and into sport. KidSport Canada hopes to get more youth into sport next year from the funds raised this holiday season. The campaign enables donors to have a real impact in their community by ensuring all of the money raised remains in the communities in which it was donated. This ensures it is local kids in need that benefit when the gift of sport is given. Local officials, led by Arnprior parks and recreation director Glenn Arthur ensure the funds raised locally are spent locally. “Give the Gift of Sport is a great opportunity for people to support their community and ensure financial circumstances are not a barrier to children that want to play sports,” said Dawn MacDonald, Partnership Lead for KidSport Canada. During this festive season, KidSport is hoping the generosity of people will help get more

kids into sport. “It’s such a positive gift for a really great cause,” said Arthur. “Here is an opportunity to make a donation to help those families who aren’t as fortunate, so what better time than during the holidays” When one in three families can’t afford to register their children in sport, the holiday season is the perfect time to give. With only seven per cent of Canadian children and youth meeting Canada’s guidelines of 60 minutes of physical activity a day, KidSport hopes Canadians will all work together to make sure that all kids can play. Every provincial and territorial chapter will be taking part in the campaign and a visit to the KidSport Canada website at kidsport.ca will direct you to your province or local community chapter. KidSport Canada provides grant assistance to children 18 years and younger who are facing financial barriers preventing them from taking part in organized sport. Grants range from $100 to $750 and go towards registration and/or equipment costs. Since its creation over 1.5 million kids across the country have been given the chance to play sport through KidSport grants.

Packers losing streak stretches to four games John Carter John.carter@metroland.com

EMC sports – The loss of four of their top players was too much for the Arnprior Junior B Packers to overcome last Friday, as the team lost 5-3 at home to the Shawville Pontiacs. The loss, the Packers’ fourth straight, dropped the team into fourth place in the six-team Valley division of the Eastern Ontario Junior Hockey League. The Packers lost their third straight 4-3 game the night before to the Ottawa West Golden Knights on a goal with five seconds left. Arnprior needs to turn its fortunes around quickly, as it plays three games this weekend, facing division rivals Perth, Almonte and Renfrew. The Friday and Saturday games are

away, before the Packers return home to host the Wolves in their final pre-Christmas game at 7:30 p.m. at the Nick Smith Centre. While the Packers are still six points ahead of Almonte for the final playoff berth, the Thunder have two games in hand. In the game against last-place Shawville, Arnprior was missing its two top scorers, Jared Steege and Derrin Lehoux, as well as Brock Burge and Jeffrey Stanton. Furthermore, Ethan Allard is still on the injury list, meaning the Packers were completely without the line that was leading them to victories early in the season. Steege was playing up a level Friday with the Pembroke Lumber Kings for the third time this year.

DEREK DUNN/METROLAND

Packers goalie Kyle Lamothe smothers the puck during play against Shawville last Friday night. It was one of the best turn-outs in the season when it comes to fans, but the home team lost 5-3.

The Packers, minus the firepower, had only 14 shots on the Shawville goal, but held the Pontiacs to 19 shots. Instead of blowing leads, as it had done in earlier losses, Arnprior mounted a comeback in this contest pulling to within 4-3 in the third before Shawville iced the win with a late marker. The teams traded goals late in the first period. Marc Shanks scored Arnprior’s equalizer, from Eric Malloy and Andrew Dekroon. With Shawville ahead 2-1 late in the second, the Pontiacs scored a short-handed marker then tallied just over a minute later to go in front 4-1. Jonathan Smith pulled the Packers back to within two, scoring at 18;33 from Brayden Harvey and Reid Murphy. Murphy made it a one-goal game at 8:23 of the third, scoring from Dekroon and Smith. But Brett Nugent ended the comeback by scoring for Shawville at 14:38. Packer goalie Kyle Lamothe was beaten five times on 19 shots, but made some key saves to keep his team in the game. He was probably fatigued as he stopped 56 of 60 shots the night before in the loss to Ottawa West in Ottawa. The Packers lost a heart-breaker when Golden Knight Josh Colley scored the deciding goal with five seconds left in the game. The Packers had taken a 2-0 first-period lead on goals by Alex Bourassa Barron and Lehoux. However, by mid-way through the third, Ottawa West had rebounded to go ahead 3-2. Lehoux scored his 25th goal of the season to tie the game at 3-3 at 8:05, before Ottawa West avoided overtime with the late goal.

Arnprior was whistled for seven of the eight minor penalties in the game, the second straight time it had found itself on the short end of the penalty calls. PACKER PATTERINGS

Last Friday was minor hockey day at the rink, with all players wearing their minor hockey jerseys getting in free. Jason and Tracey Legris of the Mac’s store in town dropped the puck for the opening faceoff in recognition

of their continuing support of minor hockey. With all the player changes on the Pembroke Lumber Kings in the wake of the departure of coach Sheldon Keefe to the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds, Packer fans can’t help but be worried that their rookie scoring star Jared Steege might to called up permanently to the big club. Derrin Lehoux has taken over the team scoring lead with 25 goals and 28 assists in 23 games. The Packers have four games left in 2012, three this weekend.

HOLIDAY SAFETY TIPS One of the most anticipated joys of the holiday season is gathering together for a Christmas feast! The Fire Chiefs of Lanark County remind you not to get distracted while youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re preparing your holiday menu! Never leave food unattended on the stove, and, if a pot catches on fire, place the lid on it and turn the stove off immediately! Most importantly, make sure you have working smoke alarms in your house. Cooking is the number one cause of home fires â&#x20AC;&#x201C; so do your part to prevent them. Have a safe and happy holiday!

Salvation Army hits homestretch for kettle campaign EMC lifestyle – With Christmas only days away, the Salvation Army is calling on Canadians to help fill the kettle. The iconic Christmas kettles are a familiar sight on street corners, in store fronts, in malls (like Arnprior’s) and can even be found online. As of Tuesday, the Salvation Army had raised $11.9 million through the kettles, but with a fundraising goal of $21 million, is still $9.1 million short. The Salvation Army will continue accepting donations through Christmas Eve in its kettles, including the one in front of Sears in the Arnprior Shopping Centre. Gerald Adamson, who was manning the Arnprior kettle and the angel tree Saturday, said the campaign had started slowly but had picked up in the last 10 days. Only a few angels for presents for teenage boys were still on the tree as of Saturday. “Our fundraising has seen the impacts of a struggling economy over the last few years, and the same is true of the 2012 Christmas season,” said Graham Moore of the Salvation Army head office in Canada. “A large majority of the Salvation Army’s fundraising occurs during our Christmas kettle campaign, and these donations tend to set the precedent for the upcoming year

JOHN CARTER/METROLAND

Salvation Army volunteer Gerald Adamson reminds the public they can make a donation at the kettle in the Arnprior Shopping Centre right up until Christmas Eve. There are still a few ‘angels’ on the Salvation Army angel tree for gifts for boys 12, 13 and 14. In the spirit of giving, the tree had a notice pinned on it on Saturday announcing that the Arnprior Sears store is accepting donations to help the victims of last Friday’s house fire on McGonigal Street. Sears Arnprior owner John Purdon matched the funds over the weekend. The store is continuing to accept donations this week. and The Salvation Army’s ability to serve millions of people in need across Canada.” With the donations to the kettle campaign lagging, Walmart Canada has announced it will hold a ‘Fill the Kettle Day’ today (Thursday). The company will match donations made by individuals to Salvation Army

Christmas kettles located in its stores nationwide up to a maximum of $100,000. Donors have a variety of ways to give to the Christmas kettle campaign, which has become one of Canada’s largest and most recognizable annual charitable events.

In addition to giving to the nearly 2,000 physical kettles, Canadians can donate to those kettles online at www.FilltheKettle.com. Donors can find any of the kettle locations nationwide and give through the use of Google Maps technology, which allows donors to make a secure online donation to a kettle within their community. Supporters of the Army’s work are also invited to host their own virtual kettles at http:// fillthekettle.com/fundraise-with-your-own-virtual-kettle/, a ready-to-use online tool that allows participants to customize their own kettle webpage and invite others via e-mail and social media to donate in support of the work of The Salvation Army. “While we may be $9 million away from our goal for this year’s Christmas kettle campaign, we are incredibly grateful to those who have donated. Every gift makes a huge difference in the life of someone in need,” said Moore. The donations help the Salvation Army provide “a sense of dignity for vulnerable individuals across the country,” he added. The 2012 Christmas campaign helps the Salvation Army provide direct, compassionate, hands-on service to more than 1.8-million people in Canada each year. Last year, more than $20 million was raised in Christmas kettles nationwide. The Salvation Army relies on the support of numerous corporate partners, including Loblaw, Walmart, Costco, the LCBO, Canadian Tire, Cadillac Fairview, Metro, Safeway, Saveon-foods, Sobeys, the Arnprior Mall and many more, who allow Christmas kettles to be placed at their locations each year. Donations to the Christmas campaign can be made at www.SalvationArmy.ca, by calling 1-800-SAL-ARMY (725-2769), at your local kettle, or via mail to The Salvation Army, 2 Overlea Blvd, Toronto, ON M4H 1P4. Donors can also support the campaign by texting HOPE to 45678 from most mobile carriers in Canada. A $5 donation will be added to your monthly mobile bill.

EMC events - Spread some Christmas cheer and take in some great entertainment this Friday at a food bank fundraiser that is back for its fourth year. Everything Music and Santa Fe Restaurant in Renfrew are hosting a special food bank fundraiser this Friday, Dec. 21 that features a host of local entertainers. JD St. Michael of Everything Music says the food bank is a worthwhile cause any time of year, but the holiday season underscores the importance of helping those in need. Recent reports indicate Renfrew’s food bank could use a boost and there are plenty of people on board to help out with this fourth annual event, says St. Michael. “We need food donations to help the food bank and support those who are less fortunate,” he said. Area entertainers in the lineup include Yan-Nick Michaud, Joel Bennett, Kevin Lambert, Tyler Johnston, Jeremy Schnob, Jordan Dubeau, and Cody Labombard. Cover charge is $5 with a non-perishable food donation or $7 without a donation. The event begins with dinner at 6 p.m., followed by an open mic session at 7 p.m., acoustic guitar jam at 8 p.m. and DJ music into the evening.

Crews tackle difficult fire in old Arnprior home Sherry Haaima Sherry.haaima@metroland.com

EMC news – At least five people are homeless after a Friday afternoon fire that proved challenging for local firefighters. Heavy smoke billowed into the sky from the home on McGonigal Street, which is owned by Ken Scissons, who lived beside the burned building in the now-closed Ken’s Kitchen. Arnprior Fire Chief John Okum said it was a difficult fire to tackle. There hasn’t been a dollar figure attached to the damage, but the building is destroyed. There were no injuries reported, although one firefighter was examined for smoke inhalation and a pet dog perished in the blaze. Five regular boarders and a sixth person who stayed there from time to time have been left homeless. The call came in shortly after 1 p.m. and firefighters were on scene within minutes. “The members responded very quickly and within a minute of being paged they were there,” said Okum. “It was a very old, heavy-timber construction, two-storey home,” said Okum. “When we arrived there was heavy smoke coming from the basement and the first floor.” Firefighters assessed the scene and did a rapid search of the home to rule out the possibility of anyone being inside. “We had an unconfirmed report of a female who was possibly inside,” said Okum. When firefighters were able to rule that out, it was a matter of reading smoke conditions and ventilating the fire, said Okum. “We had to break windows and cut open the roof,” he said. “It was difficult.” “The fire extended very quickly because of the type of construction,” said Okum. “It spread to the first and second floors very quickly.” Renfrew County paramedics remained on-scene all afternoon to assess firefighters and one individual was directed to hospital for further examination for smoke inhalation.

Clockwise from left: smoke billows high into the air; firefighters pour water through the front door of the McGonigal Street home; and the house lays in ruin the day after the fire. For more, see Page 33.

“He was checked out and was fine,” said Okum. There were about 12 town firefighters on-scene and about 10 more responded from McNab-Braeside when the chief called for mutual aid. Several more firefighters joined crews as the afternoon wore on. Arnprior OPP officers also helped manage the scene and Red Cross and the Victim Services of Renfrew County responded quickly to help those displaced by the fire. The Red Cross helped for 72 hours after the fire as is its mandate, then handed the task over to local organizations, such as the Arnprior Legion, to help distribute funds raised for the

victims. “We all worked very well together,” said Okum. “We had great support.” The community came forward in a big way, too, said the chief. The nearby Arnprior Legion, which had a turkey supper in the works, invited firefighters to come by and eat in shifts. A neighbour brought Tim Hortons coffee for the men. A big thanks to all those who helped, said Okum. The fire was put out by about 6 p.m. but crews remained on-scene overnight. The fire caused the temporary

The thick smoke did mean the company had to use a great deal of Febreze the next morning when they reopened. One resident said he was told the fire was caused by a furnace problem. However, the cause of the fire is still under investigation, said Okum.

Firefighters ventilate the fire by cutting a hole in the roof and breaking windows in the two-storey, heavy timber construction home that burned on McGonigal Street Friday afternoon.

Members of the Arnprior Fire Department, assisted by McNab-Braeside firefighters, battle the McGonigal Street blaze that completely levelled a home that housed six boarders. The public can help those who have been displaced at a number of local businesses that are collecting aid for them.

Mary’s Christmas surprise made her rethink her beliefs deep in my heart. Time and again Mother said money was scarcer than ever that year. Turkey Fair day hadn’t been as good as other years. The Depression was at its worse. But nonetheless, I was told to write my letter to Santa. My sister Audrey told me not to ask for anything that would be considered frivolous. “Remember, it isn’t only our family that is poor. Everyone in the entire world is poor,” Audrey said with conviction. “Santa won’t be able to bring everything you ask for, so be careful what you put in your letter,” she said. Little did my sister know that my belief in Santa had, a year ago, come to an end. And so pretending to be in deep concentration, I sat at the old pine table early in December and printed out my Christmas wishes in a letter to Santa. I wanted long white stockings just like bad Marguerite wore, I asked for a wood pencil box like my little friend Joyce had. But what I wanted more than anything in the whole world, was a pair of store-bought shoes. I had running shoes for the summer, but in the winter I had to wear boys brown laced brogues. And Mother didn’t

Mary Cook’s Memories BY MARY COOK

have to buy them. They came in the hand-me-down box Aunt Lizzie sent regularly from Regina. They were the ugliest shoes I had ever clapped eyes on. Decidedly boys, and when they arrived, they looked like they had hardly been on anyone’s feet. And how I hated them. But I was the only one the shoes would fit. They were much too small for any of my three brothers, and my sister Audrey, 11 years my senior, certainly couldn’t be expected to wear boys shoes to the Northcote School. And so I was the one to get the hateful shoes. And so that year, I put in my letter to Santa that I would be very grateful for a pair of store-bought girl’s shoes. And I underlined “girl’s.” I knew full well there was no Santa to read of my Christmas wish, but nonetheless

I dutifully wrote the letter, which Mother would make a great pretence of mailing at Briscoe’s General Store. All the time I knew asking for something as costly as store-bought shoes was an exercise in futility. I would be very lucky if I got a small toy from the Five and Dime Store in Renfrew. After all, hadn’t Mother warned us that it would be a lean Christmas that year? And as Christmas day drew near, I didn’t know the excitement of other years. Knowing what I did, took a lot of the joy out of the holiday for me. Of course, no one knew my feelings, having kept my secret for a year. Christmas morning chores had to be done, breakfasts eaten, and we had to be dressed for church before we could go to the tree. As had been the custom for the past few years, the tree was in the kitchen

rather than in the small parlour that was as cold as an ice house in the winter. Under the tree was an array of presents wrapped in green or red tissue paper, and as usual Father took on the job of handing them out. There was a book for each of us. I have no idea where Mother got the money, but every Christmas and every birthday, we five children could count on getting a book. And there was a new bright red ball for my game of Jacks. And there wrapped in red paper was my first pair of long white stockings! I was so thrilled, I paid no attention to the box Father put at my knee. I had never had white stockings before, and I couldn’t wait until I could rip off the beige ribbed ones I had put on when I got dressed, because I would be wearing the white ones to church! Father nudged the box towards me, but I was too excited about the white stockings to pay it much heed. Imagine! White stockings! Finally, I opened the box

beside me, and there inside was a brand new pair of storebought shoes! Black leather, they were. No laces! Audrey said they were called pumps. I didn’t care what they were called. I had my very first pair of store bought shoes! Mother looked as pleased as I felt ... almost as if she were looking at them for the very first time. I didn’t stop admiring my Christmas gifts long enough to wonder where the money came from for new stockings, and new shoes. I rubbed my hands over the soft leather in the pumps, and put the stockings up to my nose to smell their newness. And lost in the joy of these new treasures, treasures I had never owned before, I wondered, maybe I was wrong. Maybe there was a Santa Claus after all! May I take this opportunity to wish everyone the most wonderful of Christmases, and may all of you remember its true meaning, and rejoice with loved ones around you. R0011819957

EMC lifestyle - That Christmas I was a year older, and a lot wiser. I tried not to think of the past Christmas. The Christmas Eve when I found out there really wasn’t a Santa Claus. I had heard rustling downstairs in the middle of the night, and crept down the stairwell to see my sister eating the cookies I had left out for Santa, and the kitchen table covered with tissue paper, and gifts being wrapped ... not by Santa, but by Father. It was the year Mother had to spend the holiday in the Renfrew hospital, and it was sad enough for me without discovering there really was no Santa after all. I told no one what I had seen. And I had kept the secret locked in my heart for the entire year. And so that Christmas, I tried to act excited. It would spoil it for everyone if they thought I no longer believed in Santa Claus. I was told to be good, or Santa would pass by our old log house in Northcote! Eat everything on your plate ... you know Santa doesn’t like little girls who waste food! And so it went all those days before Christmas. And I kept my secret buried

Report from Queen’s Park John Yakabuski

for themselves, the tune is quite different. For now anyhow. They must believe that the good people of rural and small town Ontario have all forgotten what the Liberals have been up to for the past nine years. Sandra Pupatello is saying that we must stop being Toronto centric. Kathleen Wynne has promised to act as agriculture minister as well as premier. Charles Sousa assures us that local people will get to decide whether or not projects such as a wind farm get built. How about Eric Hoskins, stating that he would extend a share of the gas tax to all municipalities. As you know I’ve been fighting for this since I got elected. By the way, just this past April, Mr. Hoskins stood in the house and voted against my bill, which would have done precisely what he is now promising. Once someone is chosen as the new Liberal leader, with support from rural delegates, I think it’s a safe bet that

Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke MPP

To hear what the seven candidates for the Liberal leadership are saying about rural Ontario leaves one debating whether they should laugh or cry. Coming from members of a party that has all but ignored the views of those actually living in rural communities, this begs the question, who do they think we are. Since coming to power their record speaks for itself. From the Endangered Species Act – which in its present form will continue to decimate the forestry business – to development regulations written for big cities, to their refusal to recognize that our roads are ‘public transit’, they have consistently demonstrated that we are not important in their vision of Ontario. Their electoral victories were built on satisfying urban voters at the expense of rural ones. Now that they’re out looking to secure rural delegates R0011824846/1220

they will all get back to remembering where they’re from. Six from Toronto. One from Windsor. SCHOOL DAZE

If you’re confused with what’s happening in schools these days, you’re not alone. On the one hand, we have some teachers unions saying that their human rights are being taken away. At the same time other unions have signed agreements containing essentially the same terms. I hardly think that one union would willingly bargain away something so fundamental. Unfortunately, what happens in so many labour disputes, is that the rhetoric can go way over the top and leave the public shaking their heads. What we get are competing public relations battles that are focused on winning hearts and minds with little regard for, as they say, the truth the whole truth and nothing but the truth. One thing that is for certain is that when teachers unions

compel their members to withdraw their services students lose. Students should not be caught in the middle of this or any issue. If unions feel strongly enough that something is wrong they can take it to court and let the judges decide. In the meantime putting students first should be the guiding principle, not a cute phrase. CHRISTMAS WISHES

Here at home we, like so many, are getting excited about Christmas. Our family keeps growing but with school for some of our children and families of their own for others, we can’t get everyone together as often as we would like. We are so much looking forward to the family time that Christmas brings. Time for sharing, laughing, enjoying good food and celebrating what’s most important. That Miracle in a stable in Bethlehem some two thousand years ago. From our home to yours, best wishes for a Blessed and Merry Christmas and a Happy Healthy New Year.

Nighbor, O’Leary say Wynne for premier EMC news – Two high profile Renfrew-NipissingPembroke Ontario Liberals, Derek Nighbor and John O’Leary, have publicly endorsed Don Valley West MPP Kathleen Wynne to become the next Premier of Ontario. Wynne is one of seven candidates to replace Dalton McGuinty as provincial Liberal leader. The two Valley Liberals who announced their intentions to support Wynne at the Ontario Liberal Leadership convention in Toronto Jan. 25-27 are both former candidates for the party in KATHLEEN WYNNE the riding. Nighbor was provincial Liberal candidate in 2003 and O’Leary represented the party in the 2011 election. Wynne has been the MPP for Don Valley West since 2003 and has held senior social and economic portfolios including Municipal Affairs and Housing, Aboriginal Affairs, Transportation and Education. “We need more politicians like Kathleen Wynne. Especially right now,” Nighbor said. See WYNNE Page 39

MP seeking â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;pro-growthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; ideas for budget Wynne â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hideâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; EMC news â&#x20AC;&#x201C; In her December MPâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s column, Cheryl Gallant asks her constituents for suggestions on how to stimulate the economy in next yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s budget. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As your local MP, jobs and leadership on the economy continues as my primary focus,â&#x20AC;? she says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our Conservative government has been hard at work this fall implementing Economic Action Plan 2012 to help grow the economy and create jobs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As the rest of the world acknowledges, our Plan is keeping Canada on the right track, with over 820,000 net new jobs created since the end of the global recession â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the best growth record among all G-7 countries.â&#x20AC;? However, Gallant points out that challenges remain in the global economy, especially with Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s largest trading partner, the United States, and with Europe. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Canada cannot become complacent,â&#x20AC;? she stresses. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In keeping with my practice of consulting constituents as your government representative, I am asking you to share your ideas to find the best ways to strengthen Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s economy with pro-growth ideas as part of the next federal budget. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There is always a need to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of government spendingâ&#x20AC;? she says, noting many past ideas brought forward by the people of Renfrew-NipissingPembroke have been reflected in the actual federal budget. NO RISKY SPENDING SCHEMES

R0011826204

â&#x20AC;&#x153;What our Conservative Government will not be doing is engaging in dangerous and risky new spending schemes or endless spending that will increase deficits,â&#x20AC;? she says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That includes the carbon â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;tax-on-everythingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; the Opposition in Ottawa would impose on Canadians. Gallant urges people to beware of â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;green washingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, the act of â&#x20AC;&#x153;using concern for the environment to impose new and higher taxes to pay for risky, unproven schemes like carbon taxes, and damming the Petawawa River, which will only drive up the cost of energy in Ontario and drive out manufacturing jobs.â&#x20AC;?

" &"(!&"$

 

VETERANS BENEFITS INCREASED

In her November column, Gallant announced that veteransâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; benefits had been give a boost. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am pleased to confirm, that effective immediately, the Government of Canada will deliver increased benefits to Canadian Forces Veterans,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This will be accomplished by ending the deduction of Veteransâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; disability pensions when calculating their Earnings Loss and Canadian Forces Income Support benefits. A disability pension will no longer be considered when calculating the War Veterans Allowance benefit, she explained. Officials will also be reviewing the records of those who are eligible for the Earnings Loss Benefit and may now be able to receive a payment. Earnings Loss Benefit and Canadians Forces Income Support Benefit recipients who are also in receipt of a disability pension from Veterans Affairs Canada may see a significant increase in their payment in the coming weeks. All affected recipients will be notified in writing with details of the recalculation and change to their payment, she explained. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you are a CF Veteran and you have questions, please contact my constituency office.â&#x20AC;?

â&#x20AC;&#x153;I recall attending an event with her in Ottawa some years ago that was met with a protest. She was the only politician who wanted to go, out and talk with the protestors,â&#x20AC;? he added. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Kathleen. She doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hide from tough situations. Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s compassionate, thoughtful and a consensus builder. I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t wait for Ontarians to get to know her better as our first female Premier.â&#x20AC;? Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Leary said heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s supporting Wynne because of her commitment to education and her track record of success in supporting rural teachers, parents and students. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I know Kathleen Wynne is committed to making rural issues a priority - she has the record to prove it,â&#x20AC;? said Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Leary. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As Education Minister from 2006-2010, Kathleen was a champion of government efforts to improve our rural schools and give our children the best possible start,â&#x20AC;? he added. In addition to the endorsements from Nighbor and Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Leary, Wynne has further strengthened her support in rural and Northern Ontario with endorsements from student leaders at Northern Ontarioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Lakehead, Laurentian and Nipissing universities. Also running for the leadership are Mississauga South MPP Charles Sousa, St. Paulâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s MPP Eric Hoskins, Mississauga-Erindale MPP Harinder Takhar, Toronto Centre MPP Glen Murray, former Parkdale-High Park MP and MPP Gerard Kennedy, and ex-Windsor West MPP Sandra Pupatello.

No room at inn for cats EMC news â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The Canadian Federation of Humane Societies (CFHS) released a multistakeholder report Tuesday on the crisis of cat overpopulation in the country. The reportâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s findings are no surprise to Arnprior Humane Society officials, as its shelter has been overrun with cats for several years now. It got so bad last month that the shelter had to stop accepting cats unless it was an emergency situation. The report finds the animal sheltering system is at, or dangerously over, capacity to care for the cats that arrive at their doors. Cats are twice as likely as dogs to end up abandoned at a shelter or rescue. Some of these cats are surrendered pets, others are found as strays roaming the streets. The data reveals that cats entering the sheltering system have less than a one per cent chance of being reunited with their families compared with dogs, which have a 30 per cent chance. The discrepancy is most likely due to the trend in Canada to leave cats without a collar or permanent identification. Sadly, the research projects more than 600,000 homeless cats in shelters did not find new homes last year - either left waiting for a new home or facing euthanasia. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We need to reduce the number of unwanted cats, to get more lost cats back home and to increase the number of homes willing to adopt,â&#x20AC;? said CFHS CEO Barbara Cartwright. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We undertook this research to better understand the negative consequences of cat overpopulation including homelessness, overburdened shelters, animal control and rescues, and euthanasia for space and illness.â&#x20AC;? The report compiles the data from 478 stakeholders across the country, including humane societies, SPCAs, municipalities, veterinarians, rescues, trap-neuter-return groups and spay/neuter organizations. The good news is that Canadians like cats. The research found there are currently an estimated 10.2 million owned cats in Canada and they are a more popular pet choice than dogs. But the problem comes from the number of cats that are abandoned, lost or homeless.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;The research identified that adoption is the most readily available short-term solution to the cat overpopulation crisis,â&#x20AC;? said PEI Humane Society executive director Kelly Mullaly. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But unfortunately, this research also indicated that only 44 per cent of cats brought into shelters are adopted out. We need nationwide media support of the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Opt to Adoptâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; message as the number one way to acquire a new pet.â&#x20AC;? However, Canadians are more likely to acquire a â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;freeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; cat from a friend, relative, as a give-away, from their own petâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s offspring or take in a stray than they are to adopt from a humane society, SPCA or a rescue group. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a big reason why CFHS is part of the IAMS Home 4 the Holidays campaign,â&#x20AC;? said Cartwright. :This annual initiative works to match cats with loving forever homes around the holiday season.â&#x20AC;? But the adoption option only improves the current population of cats. For the long term, when asked what will solve this problem, stakeholders agreed very strongly that spay/ neuter is key to reducing cat overpopulation. Currently less than 20 per cent of the cats surrendered to shelters are spayed and neutered. Although legislation is a commonly proposed solution to a problem, stakeholders who responded to the survey identified that a lack of resources can make the enforcement of municipal bylaws a challenge. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There is no single stakeholder or group responsible for the problem or finding the solution - it is truly a community problem that requires a community effort to resolve,â&#x20AC;?. Cartwright said. To end cat overpopulation, the CFHS has identified many things that need to happen including more accessible and affordable spay/neuter surgeries, an increase in adoption rates, greater education about the plight of cats, adequate support for strategies that require enforcement (such as bylaws) and that, overall, owners must take more responsibilities for their pets.

Man pleads guilty to biting dog EMC news â&#x20AC;&#x201C; An Upper Ottawa Valley man has expressed remorse for biting and punching a dog after pleading guilty to one count of causing distress to an animal in Pembroke Dec. 10. Ronald Samuel, 23, of Pembroke, pled guilty to the action, which is contrary to the Ontario Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act. Samuel was sentenced to 15 years prohibition from owning any type of animal. He must attend counseling and is required to complete 40 hours of community service. Following his guilty plea, he read a short statement to the court. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am very sorry ... Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s horrible, what I did to her. Whatever the consequences, it

Scruffy was found wandering around for a week before anyone was able to catch him and bring him into the shelter. He was in terrible condition, with matts and burrs in his overgrown coat. After being groomed and some TLC, he is now ready to ďŹ nd a wonderful new home. He is a quiet dog, that is affectionate once he is comfortable with you. He enjoys going for walks and gets along well with other easy going dogs. He would be best suited in a quiet adult home.

would never make up for what I did,â&#x20AC;? he said. Court heard that shortly after midnight on Sept. 26, Pembroke City police officers responded to a call at the intersection of Christy Street and Pembroke Street West. Witnesses described a male suspect biting and punching a pit bull-type dog. The Ontario SPCA Renfrew County Branch investigators immediately reacted and launched an investigation. Samuel was apprehended under the Mental Health Act. The female dog, known as â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Jazzyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, was cared for by a neighborhood resident. She was observed to have sustained lacerations about the face, neck, and two nipples. She was also described as underweight, suffering from

hair loss, and with very long toe nails. The dog was later examined by a local veterinarian who further indicated that the dog had recently given birth. Further investigation into the incident revealed that the defendant was also in possession of four puppies. Under the Dog Ownerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Liability Act, Pit Bulls born after August 2008 are considered illegal in Ontario. Compliance orders under the Ontario SPCA Act were issued for their care. The puppies were later surrendered by the defendant and are being transferred out of province by a local rescue group. To report cruelty, call 1888-668-7722, the local police, or email your concern to cruelty@ospca.on.ca.

BULLDOZER MAN The Dan and Donna Smith family and extended family through marriages, have a long history of association with the Canadian forest industries. Most of us have been involved with the softwood industry and in particular White Pine. The Gibson family is included in our list of close family connections. The Gibson family became part of the Smithâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s extended family upon the marriage of Dan and Donnaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s youngest son,Gregory Marshall Smith to Teisha Gibson, the daughter of the late John H. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Jachâ&#x20AC;? Gibson (1943 to 2002), and Donna M. Kwiatkowski-Gibson. This â&#x20AC;&#x153;Bulldozer Manâ&#x20AC;? story is dedicated to the memory of Jack Gibson. Jack was a wonderful family man, and he worked in the construction (road building) industry for most of his career. He was a good and loyal friend to many including his son-in-law Gregory Marshall Smith. The Smith family connection to the forest products industry began about 125 years ago with Charles A. Smith, (Greg Smithâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s paternal great-grandfather) continuing with his grandfathers - C. E. [Ted} Smith and Dave Marshall, and most recently with Dan Smith. On the occasion of Greg Smithâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 48th birthday on December 21, 2012. his family has commissioned a carved White Pine plaque by artisan Valley Carver, Dub Juby. It is entitled â&#x20AC;&#x153;Bulldozer Manâ&#x20AC;? . The scene depicts a bulldozer in a logging road construction activity .The central figure is Jack Gibson, and the three generations of observes in the scene are Greg Smith, Ted Smith (son of Greg and Teisha), and Gregâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s father Dan Smith. The plaque will call back to memory many work and recreationalrelated activities for all who see it. It should also serve as a valued keep-sake for Ted Smith, (now aged 9), his sister Mary, and as a momento for Donna M.Kwiatkowski-Gibson and her daughters Teisha and Tammy. McNab/Braeside Township, December, 2012.

Livestock producers get AgriRecovery assistance

JOHN CARTER/METROLAND

Jayme, left, and Jen Macklem get their Christmas tree from Arnprior Optimist members Chris Kaerbye and John Rajsic Saturday at the club’s lot in the Arnprior Mall parking lot. The Optimists will continue to sell balsam and Fraser fir Christmas trees for the rest of the week until they sell out. The club has been selling trees since the 1970s. The Optimists will also offer a Christmas tree pick-up service on Jan. 5. Leave your tree on the curb with $5 attached and they will pick it up. The tree proceeds go to the club’s many initiatives on behalf of local youth. The Optimists are also gearing up for their annual winter carnival, set for Jan. 17-19. For stories on the debate over when a real or fake tree is best, see the Christmas supplement in this week’s edition of the newspaper.

Several exciting programs to start off a new year Kayla, Don and Shay

Town of Arnprior youth staff

EMC lifestyle – Well here is our last article of 2012 and what a year it has been! Lots of new programs have been introduced and we are loving every second of them. We are hoping and striving for an even better 2013. All of our programs are finishing up for the year but will restart again in January. Our very popular program, Dodgeball, will be restarting Monday, Jan. 7 from 5-6 p.m. for high school students only and then from 6-7 p.m. for elementary students. So come and enjoy this fun, non-competitive and free drop-in program every Monday. Don’t forget your running shoes. Our fencing program finished up for the year this past Tuesday and is starting to grow each and every year. There are a few different arm bands now; Yellow, Orange, Green and Blue. We are very excited to keep this program going through the years and see it grow even more. This program will resume on Tuesday, Jan. 8 at A.J. Charbonneau. See you there. BOYS NIGHT

Our Boys Night is fast approaching and is filling up very fast. Come join Don and Dave for a fun-filled night on Friday, Jan. 11 from 6-9 p.m. where we will be watching a great movie along with indulging on some delicious wings and root beer as well as learning some valuable self-esteem skills. This is a three-part course that will be fol-

lowed up by two other Boys Night programs on Wednesday, Jan. 23 and Wednesday, Jan. 30 from 6-8 p.m. These will be fun and interactive nights filled with games, activities and some more self-esteem skills. Cost is only $15 for all three sessions. Registration due by Friday, Jan. 4 and register soon because spots are filling up quickly. GET COOKING

Our Get Cooking program is in full swing and we couldn’t be happier. Join Shay and Don for the first two Wednesdays of the month and make some really awesome recipes that you get to take home and share with your family. Our next cooking classes will be on Wednesday, Jan. 9 and Wednesday, Jan. 16 from 6-9 p.m. at Arnprior District High School. Please note that you can only sign up for one class each month due to our high number of participants. Cost is only $20 per class, which includes your cook book. Registrations are due the Sunday before the program. Before we sign off for the year, we hope that everyone enjoys their holidays to the fullest and that everyone had a very Happy Hanukkah! If you have any questions or concerns about anything, please feel free to contact Kayla, Don or Shay at 613-623-7301, ext. 217 or at kmenkhorst@arnprior.ca. Don’t forget to add us on Facebook under ‘Nick Smith Centre’ and join our group ‘Arnprior Parks and Rec Youth Programs’ and follow us on Twitter under @nicksmithcentre. Happy Holidays!

up to $2.4 million to help affected livestock producers in designated drought areas of eastern and southwest Ontario cover a portion of the extraordinary costs of transporting feed to their breeding herds, or breeding herds to areas with surplus feed. The two components of the initiative are: • up to 14 cents per tonne, per kilometer to assist with the transportation of forage and feed; or • up to 7.5 cents per kilometer, per animal, to move animals to available feed. The initiative is being delivered under the AgriRecovery Framework, which allows governments to respond to unforeseen disasters that result in extraordinary recovery costs for producers. Producers are encouraged to make full use of existing government programs - AgriInsurance, AgriStability and AgriInvest - designed to help them mitigate income and production losses. DROUGHT WATCH

The AgriRecovery initiative is in addition to the support governments have already provided through the HayEast campaign to help with the costs of transporting donated hay from Western Canada. The federal government is also providing tax deferrals to eligible producers in designated drought areas on the sale of their breeding livestock. The full list of designated areas for the 2012 Livestock Tax Deferral Provision can be found on AAFC’s Drought Watch site at www.agr.gc.ca/drought. Further information regarding details of the initiative and how to apply can be obtained from Agricorp at www.agricorp.com.

EMC lifestyle – More government assistance is on the way for Ontario livestock producers facing severe forage shortages as a result of this summer’s dry growing conditions. Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke Conservative MP Cheryl Gallant and Liberal OttawaOrleans MPP Phil McNeely made the announcement last Friday on behalf of the federal and provincial agriculture ministers. The governments of Canada and Ontario will provide assistance through AgriRecovery to help livestock producers with transportation costs incurred in accessing feed for their breeding herds over winter. “Forage shortages in Ontario have forced many livestock producers to find alternate sources of feed for their animals that must be transported from long distances at a significant cost,” said Gallant. “Our government has delivered support through tax deferrals, Hay East and now through AgriRecovery to cover some of those extra costs producers will incur to transport feed or to move livestock to feed.” “When I toured Ontario farms this summer, I saw first-hand the impact of the drought on crops and livestock,” said Ontario Minister of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs Minister Ted McMeekin. “We responded quickly this summer to support livestock producers through advanced insurance payments and support for Hay East 2012. Now AgriRecovery completes the response. We’re all in this together.” Drought conditions during the summer significantly reduced forage yields and damaged pastures for livestock producers in parts of Ontario, with the upper Ottawa Valley particularly hard hit. The Ontario Forage and Livestock Transportation Assistance Initiative will provide

Singing square dancers parade through Pakenham DESMOND DEVOY/METROLAND

The Pakenham Santa Claus Parade was held Saturday, Dec. 8, starting at 1 p.m. from the Stewart Community Centre parking lot. It was too cold, slippery and wet to dance, but that didn’t stop members of the Pakenham Square Dancers Club from singing out some holiday favourites from atop their perch on their float.

EMC lifestyle – If you find a few spare moments, browse the Pakenham Library for pleasurable reads for the holidays. Happy holidays to all! A few of the many highlights this week include: Ancient by John Banville – Winner of the Man Booker Prize – fiction; Telegraph Avenue by Michael Chabon – New York Times Bestselling Author – fiction; The Black Box by Michael Connelly – New York Times Bestselling Author – fiction. A Week in Winter by Maeve Binchy – Final novel by the late author, with due respects – fiction; Cross Roads by Wm. Paul Young – Author of the bestseller ‘The Shack’ – fiction. Pakenham Branch Library hours are Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday from 2:30 to 4:30 p.m. and 7 to 9 p.m.; Thursdays 1:30 to 4:30 p.m. and 7 to 9 p.m; and Saturday 1 to 5 p.m. (613-624-5306).

At the Pakenham Santa parade, Barr Bus Lines proudly shows off a clothesline full of winter sports jerseys, from the Almonte Thunder to Almonte and District High School teams, as well as an eclectic mix of tops running the gamut from Nipissing University in North Bay to Australian rockers AC/DC. Left, a junior member of the Mississippi Mills Fire Department hands out candies to his fellow youngsters along the parade route.
