Arnprior Fire Trucks to open on Didak Drive, Plaintree subsidiary expected to create jobs NEVIL HUNT nevil.hunt@metroland.com

BRAESIDE MEMORIES The painting ‘Return to Braeside’ has won an award for local artist Paul Perreault, who has bought back memories with his depiction of a train arriving at the old Braeside station. The future of the rail line is in the news this week, with a glimmer of hope that it could be saved after all. 12, 42

FORMER WARDEN DIES Speaking of Braeside, the village’s last reeve, Neil Mullins, died last week. Former colleagues remember his contributions as reeve and County warden. 3

IT’S BEGINNING TO LOOK LIKE CHRISTMAS The Christmas lights up around town are receiving glowing praise. The Arnprior Christmas season gets underway in earnest Saturday with the Legion’s Santa Parade. 2

CHEVROLET

Sound the sirens. Plaintree Systems Inc. is launching Arnprior Fire Trucks Corp., to be located on Didak Drive in Arnprior. The first trucks could roll off the assembly line as soon as the first months of 2011. The company will produce high-end fire trucks and emergency vehicles to be sold to municipalities, mostly in North America. The trucks will be made to order in the building formerly occupied by Zomax. Plaintree CEO David Watson said on Tuesday that the company is fortunate to be able to acquire experienced employees that used to work for the nowdefunct Almonte Firetrucks Corporation, a subsidiary of a U.S. firm that shut down their Almonte operation.

Watson said the new operations will “fit nicely” within Plaintree’s existing operation in Arnprior, which employs about 70 people in structural design, aerospace and telecommunications. And the time appears right to make the move, he said. “With the economic recession that has been going on, a lot of municipalities have put off buying fire trucks,” he said. “We think it’s a good opportunity and that there will be lots of contracts up for bids in the coming months.” Plaintree chief financial officer Lynn Saunders said 10 new jobs will be created in the short term, with more possible as production gets underway. The first 10 positions will be filled by former Almonte Firetrucks employees. See ‘GREAT NEWS’ Page 2

Public invited to council inaugurals The new Arnprior and McNab-Braeside councils aren’t wasting any time getting sworn into office. Both councils are holding inaugural meetings on the first day possible, Wednesday, Dec. 1. The public is invited to the in-

augural sessions, both at 7 p.m. The Arnprior swearing-in ceremony will be held at the Nick Smith Centre. McNabBraeside’s new council will take office in council chambers. See ‘COUNCILS’ Page 2

Continued from front Almonte Firetrucks was one of the top manufacturers of high-end fire trucks in Canada. Watson said that Plaintree spent months studying the skills the former Almonte employees could bring to the Arnprior operation before acting. He said the new Arnprior company already has sales leads for new trucks. Arnprior Fire Trucks will supply everything from the original conception drawings and engineering, through the manufacture of completed vehicles. The new Arnprior company will be operated as a whollyowned subsidiary of Plaintree. The fire truck company already has a website in operation – www.arnpriorfiretrucks.net – detailing the products that will be made here, including rescue pumpers, tankers, heavy and light rescue vehicles, as well as smaller attack trucks(a type of modified pickup truck.) Saunders said ladder trucks are more complex vehicles, and while they won’t be manufactured by the company as it starts up,

it may add them to the product line later. Arnprior’s economic development officer, Erin Clarke, was upbeat when asked about the new Plaintree subsidiary coming to town. “It’s great news for Arnprior and great news for Plaintree,” Clarke said.

Continued from front On advice of staff, McNab-Braeside council decided not to wait until Dec. 7, which would be its normal first meeting. It’s better to have council in place quickly in case of an emergency, staff suggested. Arnprior staff recommended the Dec. 1 date, noting holding off the traditionally social event to Dec. 6 would cost council a working meeting. However, other neighbouring councils aren’t as hasty. Inaugurals will be held Dec. 6 in Mississippi Mills and Renfrew, Dec. 7 in Horton and Dec. 9 in Greater Madawaska.

Three McNab-Braeside employees were honoured for their long service to the township and another was welcomed to the fold during a service award gathering at the Blackbird Cafe in Burnstown Nov. 18. Township CAO/clerk Noreen Mellema was recognized for 25 years, roads superintendent Brian Box for 20 years and executive assistant Angela Young for 10 years. Mayor Mary Campbell praised the trio, saying the township is renowned for its talented and dedicated staff. “Excellence breeds excellence,” she said. She also thanked the three outgoing council members for their contributions.

The reeve who guided Braeside into amalgamation with McNab has died at the age of 83. Neil Mullins passed away in Arnprior District Memorial Hospital last Thursday, Nov. 18. Mullins served as the last reeve of Braeside from 1989 until the amalgamation took effect in 1998. He also served as Warden of Renfrew County in 1996. “He really stuck up for the people of Braeside,” said Norm Hazelwood, who was reeve of McNab during the amalgamation negotiations. “He was good for them ... he fought for them at County council ... he could be pretty fiery sometimes.” Hazelwood said Mullins insisted Braeside municipal staff keep their jobs during any merger with another municipality, a stand that helped derail what was expected to be a Braeside-Arnprior amalgamation. He also insisted that the Braeside name be retained in any new entity, noted Hazelwood. “I always had good relations with him,” he added. “You could always count on him.” Hazelwood said that Mullins knew the value of good staff and relied on his clerktreasurer, now McNab-Braeside township CAO, Noreen Mellema a great deal. Mellema said that Mullins appreciated and valued staff input and listened well to ratepayers. He was always very accessible to staff, even when he was County warden, she said. “He always let us know

where he was in case he was needed.” She said he and his council went into amalgamation negotiations understanding the need for mergers, but insisted that Braeside staff and its assets and reserves were protected, so as to continue to benefit the village’s residents. Mullins grew up in the village and lived only a couple of houses away from the municipal office. McNab-Braeside Coun. Brad McIlquham a Braeside resident, said Mullins was “instrumental in making it (amalgamation) a fair deal for Braeside.” He was a “good politician ... he worked hard at it,” said McIlquham. “He was also a nice guy ... he earned a lot of respect from everyone. We’ll miss him deeply.” McNab-Braeside Mayor Mary Campbell said it took political courage to negotiate an amalgamation for the village. “It’s a credit to him that he brought Braeside back into the fold,” she added, noting McNab and Braeside had originally been one entity. Campbell presented Mullins with a township pin a couple of weeks ago and spoke at his funeral Monday. Anita Rouleau, who went to the same school as Mullins, said he grew up in Braeside. “He was popular in the village,” she said. He also worked a long time for Smiths Construction, she noted. Mullins is survived by a son, Christopher, and daughter, Deborah, both of Arnprior; four grandchildren; and three great-grandchildren. His funeral was held Monday in the Boyce Chapel in Arnprior.

Stick with E-vote, council advised Seniors voting turnout still strong in Arnprior under new high-tech system JOHN CARTER john.carter@metroland.com

Arnprior should continue to use electronic-voting, recommends town clerk Jacquie Farrow-Lawrence. In a report presented to council Monday, Farrow-Lawrence concluded that despite problems in the last two hours of voting Oct. 25, the town should stick with E-voting for the next election in 2014. However, technical capabilities need to be expanded to handle a large, concentrated turnout of voters, she said. Farrow-Lawrence said the increased voter turnout to 64.6 per cent, one of the best in the region, illustrates the success of the system. Most other area municipalities that used the system are recommending it be retained for 2014, she added. “It was felt, overall, to be very successful.” The statistics indicated seniors did not shy away from voting by Internet or phone. The Arnprior turnout for voters in their 50s was 72 per cent, in their 60s 81 per cent and in their 70s 71 per cent. The most disappointing statistic was the fact only 39 per cent of voters in their 20s cast a ballot despite their reputation for being widespread users of the Internet and cell phones. While agreeing the turnout was a plus, Mayor Terry Gibeau and Coun. Jack Lammert reiterated their concerns about Intelivote’s handling of the final hours of voting. “I compliment staff. The turnout was

great, but the service provided by the company stunk,” said Lammert. “I’d not deal with this outfit again. It was disgusting.” Gibeau, who said at the Nov. 1 meeting that he was surprised and disappointed with Intelivote’s inability to handle a surge of voters between 5:30 and 8 p.m. Oct. 25, noted there were problems during voting start-up too. At least one voter had his pin number disabled because of how many time he tried unsuccessfully to use it, he noted. Farrow-Lawrence “guesstimated” that about 150 people were negatively impacted by the slowdown in the last two-plus hours of voting. About 150 people voted on the extra day of voting provided by the town. She explained that 20.4 per cent of Arnprior voters, or about 900, voted on Oct. 25, double the number expected by Intelivote. An unanticipated volume of candidate search usage and the defaulting of the main server to a redundant server worsened the problem. Intelivote representatives met with area municipal officials recently in Arnprior to outline improvements designed to avoid a repeat of the problems. As well, the company offered a 10 per cent discount to affected municipalities (Arnprior saves about $2,000) and will provide free service for any by-elections or plebiscites that the town might run between now and the 2014 election. VOTE FROM AFGHANISTAN In her report, Farrow-Lawrence noted 68 per cent of voters used the Internet and 32

AGM AND CHRISTMAS SOCIAL

per cent the phone. A total of 53 people voted from out-of-province, including a soldier serving in Afghanistan. Farrow-Lawrence said the E-vote system with its convenient seven-day 24-hour voting period definitely helped improve accessibility to the polls. She said a student vote in which the Grade 10 civics class at Arnprior District High School participated was a “very positive initiative.” Forty-eight of 112 (43%) eligible 18- and 19year-old Arnprior voters cast a ballot in the election, higher than the 20-year-olds. She reported that the $29,000 election budget went over between $3,000 and $4,000 because of the need to hire four part-timers to help with the extra polling stations and the voter help line. In her report, Farrow-Lawrence suggested the election budget be boosted $6,000 to $35,000 for 2014. Staffing of the help phones could end at 8 p.m. instead of 10 p.m. because of the few calls received after 8 p.m., she recommended. As well, about $1,200 could be saved by not having district returning officers at the fire hall and library polls, where turnout was low. Another $1,200 could be saved by cutting back some aspects of the public communication program, such as fridge magnets. In conclusion, she commended town staff, in particular deputy clerk Maureen Spratt, for working tirelessly to ensure the election process was a success. When it came to staff, “it was very well done,” agreed Reeve Walter Stack.

Water lacking ammonia DEREK DUNN derek.dunn@metroland.com

If the town’s water tastes like it has more chlorine or smells faintly of rotten eggs, it’s not a health and safety concern. Town of Arnprior waterworks supervisor Mike Trumble said a pump at the water treatment plant near the Nick Smith Centre will be replaced by early December, which should solve the inconvenience. “We’re using the same amount of chlorine, but we’re not adding as much ammonia to cover it up,” Trumble said. Few small municipalities add ammonia to the water supply, opting to save money instead. But Arnprior does it to “stabilize and help with taste” he added. The breakdown has nothing to do with the centrifuge at the waste water plant, which is at a different building altogether.

Drive sober, urge OPP after arrests After arresting three drivers for impaired driving last week, the Renfrew OPP has issued a plea for motorists to drive sober. One of the arrests was made on Russett Drive in McNab-Braeside. On Nov. 18 at about 3:40 p.m., Sgt Steph Neufeld stopped a vehicle for speeding. The male driver had been drinking and failed a roadside screening test. He was arrested and taken to the detachment for further breath tests. The 28year-old McNab-Braeside man was charged with driving a motor vehicle with more that 80 mgs of alcohol. He was released on a promise to appear in court in Renfrew Jan. 12. Driving a motor vehicle takes skill and attention, emphasizes police. “Alcohol and drugs affect your fine motor skills, as well as your ability to focus, and properly judge situations, distances and times. Alcohol and drugs should never be mixed with driving a motor vehicle; the end result could be fatal. “Please choose to drive sober.”

Mental health help available The high profile suicide of the daughter of former National Hockey League player and Ottawa Senators assistant coach Luke Richardson has prompted the OPP to urge people thinking of harming themselves to get help. “Are you, or someone you know suffering from depression, feeling alone, suicidal or suffering from some mental health crisis? There is help available,” says the OPP in a news release this week. “Do not suffer silently, reach out for help. Call the Mental Health Crisis Line at 1-866-996-0991, available 24/7.” The OPP also advises that in an emergency, call 9-1-1 or go to the emergency department at your local hospital.

Decision up to new council Continued from Page 4 However, council deferred the decision on the main recommendation. It suggests no adjustments be made to consumption due to previous loaw estimated bills and penalty and interest payments be waived for a further three-month period ending March 31, 2011. The later would give customers the ability to pay off their outstanding balance with having to pay extra. That recommendation will be left to the incoming council.

True-cost hydro, cut taxes

Riding needs MP who will listen

A hydro electricity announcement has heightened cynicism toward the McGuinty government. While we don’t shy away from assigning blame when such announcements are made, there is also a solution that all parties at the provincial level ought to consider. Hydro rates will likely rise by 46 per cent over the next five years, according to the Liberal government’s fall economic statement. It plans to offset the increase with a new hydro benefit. The benefit will see a 10 per cent cut for eligible residential, farm and small business customers starting Jan. 1. The average family could save $150 annually. Farms could save $2,052, and businesses using 250,000 kWh a year or less, will see $1,716 in savings. Critics call the move a careless ploy to appease voters before next fall’s election. Others say it does nothing to discourage energy waste. It won’t do much to help low income people either, such as those on Ontario Works (OW). A single person on OW has $585 a month to pay rent and buy food. There isn’t much left for anything else. With the HST applied to basic necessities, the cost of living is rising much more quickly than many of these people can keep up with. Consider that many apartments go for $800 or more a month, plus hydro. But there’s plenty of blame to go around when it comes to skyrocketing hydro rates. The Conservatives under Mike Harris and current leader Tim Hudak were warned that deregulation and privatization would lead to profits for generators, distributors, and retailers, along with dividends to investors, huge salaries for those on new boards created - all paid for by taxpayers. The irony is that, in 1906, the Conservative Sir Adam Beck was backed by business groups who wanted non-profit power. They were tired of being taken to the cleaners. Rather than creating a specific rebate for a specific cost – 10 per cent for hydro use – the province would be wise to, over a three-year period, implement the true-cost of electricity. It’s a Green party idea. Offsets should come from reductions in income tax. A streamlined system would reduce needless red tape and public sector costs. It may even reduce cynicism.

Put the cenotaph on CN park land To the editor: Your editorial in last week’s issue of the Chronicle-Guide was excellent. “Bad place for a good thing” has been on my mind for some time and the reasons you gave are appropriate, timely and I think necessary. The placing of the cenotaph at the hospital was probably the right decision for the times. It fitted into an area that was then a quiet part of the town and no doubt was given its place because of the socio-political thinking of the day. Moving a cenotaph is not a new concept: it has been done in many places for similar reasons and there is no need here to name some of them, suffice to say it has occurred before. Cenotaphs are found in many places in our communities. Some are in cemeteries, some on municipal land adjacent to town or city halls,

some in prominent places, while many are in parks. Our cenotaph ought to be in a park. Such a park in town exists: is lovely, has the space needed for the size of our monument, is accessible for most of us and there would not be a large cost involved in moving it. This park is the CN park land between Daniel and John streets. It is a delightful park and would be a more suitable site for the cenotaph. This might be a good news type of project for our new council to take a look at. It is also in the interests of the Royal Canadian Legion, of which I am a member of, to take a serious look at. This endeavour is a ‘winwin’ for us all and will also help in our downtown revitalization efforts.

To the editor: Recently I was driving in the Upper Ottawa Valley and I had this sense of what a wonderful part of the Canada we can call home. Everything I saw before me seemed idyllic. I was on my way to a political meeting when a thought or two interrupted my respect and appreciation for what lay before me. These thoughts were somewhat foreboding. Actually, when I arrived at my meeting, I spoke about the uneasiness and fear that I was experiencing. My fear relates to the future of this riding (Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke) and this country we call Canada. The fabric of our community and country under this current government and our MP has changed dramatically. We have big issues that require intelligent planning and foresight - poverty, lack of jobs, the future of AECL, support for farmers, elder care, aboriginal issues. What are the important issues for Stephen Harper and Cheryl Gallant? Billions of dollars spent on the G8 and G20 summits, getting rid of the long form census, dismantling of prison farms, then building super jails (based on an American model) and proroguing parliament twice to suit their own objectives. Then, there is the ongoing attempt to pit rural and urban communities against each other. I do not see anything positive in any of their actions. It is all doom and gloom. Fear-mongering is the word of the day. In addition to all of this, we have the misfortune to have an MP who will not engage in any open debate or discussion. We are being denied the right to have free and open debate at our local level. Muzzling from the top. Do we not deserve better than this? Late in August, I attended a Liberal Express stop in our riding. There I was able to meet Michael Ignatieff and our worthy Liberal candidate, Christine Tabbert. The whole tone of the gathering was positive, with a feeling of hope and an eagerness to talk with voters about their relevant and serious issues. Both Mr. Ignatieff and Ms. Tabbert were able to answer questions in an open manner and to address concerns that voters raised. What a difference than the usual silence with which we are met. We need a change of federal government and we need to start here in Renfrew-Nipissing- Pembroke by electing Christine Tabbert when the writ is dropped. No more one-issue candidates.

LETTER

Humane Society thank you

To the editor: The Arnprior and District Humane Society would like to thank our supporters and volunteers who donated their time, effort and baked goods for our annual Bake Sale & More event on Saturday, Nov. 13 at the

Arnprior Mall. We were able to raise muchneeded funds during this fundraiser for our many homeless animals at the shelter. Many thanks to everyone who came out and bought baking, gift baskets and made cash donations.

We depend so much on the Arnprior and area community to help us maintain our no-kill animal shelter.

LETTER

Humane society directors don’t need re-training To the editor: Re: Wandering dog should have been accepted (Arnprior Chronicle-Guide, Nov. 18). For the past three-and-a-half years, I have been an agent investigator with the Ontario Society for the Prevention Of Cruelty To Animals, and work from the Arnprior Humane Society. My territory covers from Arnprior to east of Renfrew, Calabogie, White Lake and in between. I make myself available 24/7, 365 days a year, and I do this as a volunteer. Our Arnprior Humane Society is mandated to accept dogs and cats from this huge territory, but also accept animals received by my cruelty investigations. Our Humane Society was built 15 years ago, to house 50 cats and four dogs. This has now doubled. It is because of the dedicated and committed board members and a staff of compassionate and dedicated women, that this territory has a no-kill shelter. They rely on the generosity of our township and the amazing people who reside here to operate and continue. When it comes to animals, especially dogs and cats, our emotions tend to overtake at times. With ‘Jake’ the wandering dog, Ottawa Bylaw should have been the first call. It is their job to respond to wandering, loose pets. They could have gotten the same number on Jake’s collar, and by being in their own territory, might have been united sooner. Yes, Arnprior might have been closer and more convenient for the person. However, as was explained, they are double capacity now, from mostly preventable reasons (spay/neuter) in this territory. My point is that the policies of the Arnprior Humane Society Board of directors has kept our shelter running successfully for many years, and that the only ‘re-training’ their staff might need is how not to internalize a few un-informed public. Agent V. Hemphill OSPCA

AWARD-WINNING ARNPRIOR HOME The Campanale model home at 24 Wolff Cres. won the 2010 Housing Design Award at this year’s Ottawa Homebuilders competition. At the award’s presentation are, from left, Mark Kauhanen, presenter Linda Oliveri, Lynn Russett and Vince Campanale. “It feels great,” Campanale said. “It’s very good for the community of Arnprior. This is the type of home that will be built in Ottawa for about $200,000 more than it costs here.” He said owners of the winning model now get bragging rights. “They can say they bought and award-winning model.” Unfortunately, the Wolff Crescent home sold a few days after the award was handed out. To find out if others are left, call Russett at (613) 622-0033. Photo courtesy of Total

Major step made toward saving rail line

CN and Transport Pontiac-Renfrew (TPR) announced Wednesday they have signed an agreement-in-principle to start the process to save the railway line up the Valley known as the Beachburg Subdivision. The line runs from Pembroke east through the Pontiac and West Carleton to Ottawa. Preserving the line has been a major goal of Arnprior mayor Terry Gibeau, a member of TPR. “This initial agreement is a big step in the acquisition process,” says Transport

Pontiac-Renfrew director Louise Donaldson. “Some specifics of the deal still need to be worked out, but the parties are eager to complete the transaction.” Formed in 2009, Transport PontiacRenfrew is a not-for-profit corporation with a mission to acquire the line and develop and operate increasing levels of freight service. Following launch of the freight operation, TPR plans to introduce commuter/passenger service along with possible tourist excursions. The initiatives will help bolster the economies of local communities and im-

prove the economic livelihood of their residents. “Rail is key to revitalizing our communities,” said Donaldson. “It’ll serve as a major benefit when courting new industry, plus, it will attract future rail-served clients which in turn will create jobs.” Donaldson adds that regular dependable commuter service into Ottawa is another plus. “It will encourage people to move back into the region.” From 1998 to 2008, the railway line and several other railway properties including Ottawa Central Railway were owned

by Chemins de fer duQuebec. CN reacquired CFQ in late 2008. The Beachburg Sub had been subsequently placed on CN’s abandonment list. Community Futures agencies in both Renfrew County and Pontiac have maintained their support and commitment to the initiative. “The railway is a lifeline for the region,” says Donaldson. “Our economic health now and future growth absolutely depend on it.” Negotiations are ongoing with both parties looking forward to an official transfer of the line in early 2011.

Potential railway purchase discussions given more time STEVE NEWMAN steve.newman@metroland.com

Don’t give up on the trains just yet. There may be more time, after all, to salvage the future of Canadian Pacific Railway transportation through Renfrew County. Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke MP Cheryl Gallant says she is “pleased to have been able to act upon” Renfrew Warden Don Rathwell’s concern expressed in a recent letter to government officials, including federal transport minister Rob Merrifield, and the Rail Freight Service Review Panel regarding the fate of

the rail line that travels through Arnprior and Renfrew. Rathwell’s letter indicated the recent municipal elections have left many councils in a ‘lameduck’ situation and, therefore, unable to deal with tight timelines associated with discontinuance of the local line. “As a result of efforts by my office with CP Rail, the company is prepared to entertain offers of purchase right up to the time they begin dismantling assets,” said Gallant in a news release Monday. Written confirmation of the extension came from Canadian Pacific’s vice-president of gov-

ernmental affairs, Gallant told The Chronicle-Guide. “CP does not anticipate moving to pull up track before spring. This gives the newly-elected municipal councils, including county council, an additional (60) days beyond the regulated time period.” Initially, Gallant thought this created an additional 90 days beyond the regulated time period, but not so. Successive 30-day windows of opportunity, for offers of interest, are already in place for the provincial government, the urban transit authority (meaning Ottawa), and the municipal gov-

ernment (meaning the County of Renfrew). Those respective deadlines are Dec. 6, Jan. 5 and Feb. 4. Renfrew County chief administrative officer Jim Hutton said “there may be more time (to find an operator), but not much else has changed at this point.” “Hopefully,” said County Warden Rathwell, “the government(s) will take a stronger look at keeping the railway operating … We don’t want to own the railway, but we might end up owning the right away later on (if the rail line is abandoned). “Cheryl’s shown some interest, and she’s made contact. We

just have to keep our foot to the floor on this until all avenues are expired.” Arnprior Mayor Terry Gibeau said the extended time line will help because it will give the Transport Pontiac-Renfrew, of which he is a member, time to finalize the agreement on the CN line between Ottawa and Pembroke. Once that deal id finalized, the group can then turn its attention on possible benefits of setting up a network utilizing both the CP and CN rail lines up the Valley, he said. See ‘MP’ Page 43

NEVIL HUNT

Obsessive & Compulsive?

If you’re lost in the woods without a GPS, hope that the search team out looking for you has satellite navigation units. A training scenario for a large search-and-rescue team took place in Fitzroy Harbour last Sunday, with searchers on the ground and a Canadian Armed Forces helicopter in the air. On foot were 42 volunteers with Search & Rescue Global 1, a not-forprofit organization that provides ground search in eastern Ontario and western Quebec. Many are retired police or military, while others are just volunteers who like to help in emergencies. They come from the city and across the region, travelling at their own cost to train in semi-annual scenarios and take part in real searchand-rescue operations when someone is reported missing. Global 1 training co-ordinator Jack Ricou said the scenario in Fitzroy Harbour involved two mentally-challenged people who went to Fitzroy Provincial Park for a picnic and got lost after dark. Teams of searchers departed the Fitzroy Harbour Community Centre’s command centre, clad in fluorescent vests that made them look like a mobile construction zone. The searchers also carried GPS units; not to prevent them from getting lost, but to provide a clear map of where they walked. “That way the search managers can see everywhere we’ve searched,� Ricou said. “And they can even see the gaps.� Ricou said the public may have an inaccurate impression of how a search is conducted. TV police dramas may show officers walking shoulder to shoulder across a field as they search for someone. In reality, Ricou said such a grid search is a last resort. “Today it’s quite scientific,� he said. “We have lost person profiles, whether they are hunters, despondents, or young children four to five, or six to seven. “All of them do different things (when they become lost).�

If you go “overboard� easily, it could provoke a lot of tension and problems in your life. Heilkunst treats for any of these issues - it doesn’t matter if it is your personality or associated to a disease. Make your life easier!

Plan it. Do it. A Griffon helicopter passes just above the trees in Fitzroy Provincial Park on Sunday morning, part of a search-and-resuce training scenario. As an example, he said despondent people who are reported missing – who may be at risk of suicide – often travel to somewhere they remember. They may also be found on a hilltop, where they have a view of the surrounding area. Ricou said profiling has improved international search efforts, and Canadian search teams deserve some of that credit. He said profiling has reduced search times considerably. In the Fitzroy exercise, a Canadian Forces Griffon helicopter assisted with the search, clattering over the village and the provincial park for more than 20 minutes. Ricou said dogs could have been used too, but the purpose of the scenario was to get ground searchers practising their skills, so the dogs stayed behind. After locating the two “lost� people, searchers exited the woods to retrieve stretchers, including one from a former ambulance located on Canon Smith Drive that is specially equipped as a mobile command post. Ricou said Global 1 would be happy

to return to Fitzroy for a training exercise in the future. He said the hospitality was great and the park is nicely contained for training. In addition, the proximity of the community centre, which served as the hub of activities, worked out well. The OPP’s top search man was in Fitzroy to watch how things unfolded. “There are three OPP observers today,â€? said Sgt. Don Webster, who travelled to Fitzroy Harbour from the police force’s head office in Orillia. He said the Global 1 team appeared professional, organized and wellequipped. OPP OBSERVING “The mapping software they use is the same one we use,â€? Webster said. As the provincial police search coordinator for the last eight years, Webster said he’s seen good and bad outcomes when someone goes missing. He said the successes outweigh the searches that end with the discovery of a dead body. Even if there is a fatality, the family affected gets closure, he said, and evidence of any foul play can be crucial. Webster recounted one case where it took about 10 weeks to locate the body of a murdered female in a landfill. “We helped get the guy who killed her,â€? he said, adding that evidence gathered with the body was key to a conviction. “That meant a lot to me.â€? Webster said the three most common calls for search teams, in order, are: • someone lost who may have been drinking or taken a shortcut; • despondent people; • people with dementia. “With a child or elderly person, you have to get going fast,â€? he said. Webster said he has a personality that doesn’t get dragged down by bad news. “I’m usually upbeat, highly motivated and I never give up,â€? he said. “There aren’t many jobs where you can say, ‘I saved as life today.’â€?

The musical score blends ragtime, parlor music and even a barbershop quartet, with a mix of traditional and new Christmas music. Set just a few weeks before Christmas, the musical follows the escapades of members of an outof-work family performing group, who find themselves unexpectedly spending time in a small rural town, where the entire family learns the importance of following God’s unique direction for their

Oliver will have four public performances over three days this week in the ADHS gymnasium. There will be 7 p.m. performances today (Thursday) through Saturday (Nov. 2527) as well as a 3 p.m. matinee Saturday.

Also taking on major roles in the production are Connor Hogan as Bill Sykes, Alyssa Brown as the Artful Dodger and Amanda Baird as Nancy. Mary-Beth Pidgeon is directing the annual production put on by the ADHS performing arts students, with help from James Hrkach, Donalda Stevens and other staff members. Band master Frank Pec-

Colour fills Walter Zadow kindergarten playground derek.dunn@metroland.com

It wasn’t Debbie Travis passing through Walter Zadow’s kindergarten playground splashing paint in every direction. It was a few older students learning something about teamwork and empathy. Everything from the colourful polka dots on the cement ground to painted flowers on the walls to a handprint by each of the five boys involved, the area was dramatically improved three weeks ago. “We’re trying to make it cheerful and bright for the little ones,” said teacher

Jennifer Morgan, who along with Jacquie Wilson organized the project. Every wall in the courtyard is dotted with lady bugs, a huge school bus or other kid-friendly images. Donations came in from the Currie and Flowers families, along with perennials from Canadian Tire. The boys – Michael Bonell, Dylan Hobbins, Jarrod Jackson, Cole Bennett, and Ronan Kahn – were excited to show off their accomplishment, and mention they held a popcorn sale with proceeds going toward new outdoors toys for the little ones.

The amount of work, says Millard, depends on one’s level of self-esteem and support from his or her network of friends and family members. “I really believe we’re all born with a diamond in our hearts, but we lose our shine as we grow up,” says Millard. Those reasons can be many, like a wrong perception, or the way self-esteem can be tarnished by traumatic or misinterpreted events. The book, says Millard hopefully, will help children elevate their own self-esteem. As the author says, “No matter what the circumstances, you have control over what you think.” A great example is one’s perception of rain. Rain doesn’t have to be a dampener, or a negative event unto itself, explains Millard. Children can easily describe what they don’t like about rain, but upon farther ques-

Look for Sparkler and her friend, Frankie, to create a little sparkle in your lives. At least that’s the expectation of author Carolyn Millard for her recent book, Sparkler. A former Eganville resident who now lives near Barry’s Bay, she has borrowed experiences from her work as a social worker, as well as from her own and her children’s childhoods, to write the book. Millard’s series of readings and book signings throughout the Ottawa Valley will include a visit Saturday morning, Dec. 4, at the Arnprior Public Library. The characters in the book are all pipe-dreamer characters, in keeping with the name of their street, Pipe Dream Lane. This also happens to be the name of the road on which Millard lives in Barry’s Bay. “You are what you think,” says Millard of the motto of the book, which is geared to children as well as adults, especially with children and grandchildren and other youngsters in their midst. “Sparkler is a combination of imagination, childhood memories, my daughters’ antics and the delight of all children. It encourages children to sparkle from the inside,” adds Millard, who says pre-schooler Sparkler faces a few obstacles, namely Negative Nellie Notions. Those notions are just a normal part of life, but a part that needs more work for some than others.

Sarah Bogar and Maureen Sly-Havey are thrilled with the success of the Treats for Tots event held Nov. 12 in Arnprior .

428676

A charity event was hosted by Maureen Sly-Havey and FOMASH Nov. 12 in Arnprior to benefit Share a Gift. Sarah Bogar has been organizing Share a Gift for the past four years since she took over from Helen Havelin who had been running the program for 17 years. Share a Gift provides packages for children in need in Arnprior and area at Christmas. Last year, 217 children benefited. Each child receives a stuffed animal, toy, book and outfit. The charity event, Treats for Tots, was a coffee and dessert party at Kirkman House in Arnprior. Jacqueline Turner, owner of Sweet and Sassy, generously donated all of the desserts – which were quite delicious. Ellen Smith of Kirkman House donated the venue for the event – and she had decorated for Christmas, so it was quite festive. In total, over $850 in cash and many toys and books were donated to Share a Gift that evening. If you would like to make a donation, drop items off at Sweet and Sassy Co. or call Bogar at 613-623-9595 or SlyHavey at 613-623-0363.

ADHS captures first EOSSAA football championship Redmen to play in Ontario final Saturday in Peterborough JOHN CARTER john.carter@metroland.com

The Arnprior District High School Senior football team delighted a large turnout of fans on their home field Saturday by winning its first Eastern Ontario Secondary Schools Athletic Association (EOSSAA) AA championship 37-22 over the Brockville Red Rams. After winning two playoff games on the road, “it was good to play here again,” said head coach Al Luimes, noting the Redmen haven’t lost at home all year. “It was a great turnout (of fans).” The EOSSAA championship comes in Luimes’ 25th year of coaching, the last 20 with ADHS. The Redmen broke open a close game with two second-half touchdowns, including one on the first play of the fourth quarter when star running back

A tired but happy Jesse Andrews gets a chance to take a breather after the game.

Jesse Andrews made a long run down the middle. The scores stretched the Redmen lead to 30-14 before the Rams gave their fans hope with a touchdown and two-point conversion to cut the deficit to eight points. However, with Andrews and quarterback Adam Reuckwald leading the way, the Redmen kept the ball away from the Rams with an effective ground and short passing game. Arnprior eventually scored its final touchdown on the final play of the game after Brockville gave the Redmen good field position with a series of penalty and offside calls. A quick whistle that negated a Rams recovery of an onside kicked particularly incensed the Brockville coach. SATURDAY SHOWDOWN The Seaway Bowl win qualifies Arnprior for the AA National Capital Bowl in Peterborough. The Redmen travel to Trent University this Saturday, Nov. 27 where they will play the Adam Scott Lions of Peterborough in the provincial senior AA football final. The Lions, who defeated a Barrie school in their semi-final, should be a formidable opponent, having qualified for the championship for the past four years. Nevertheless, Luimes is optimistic the Redmen will be able to defeat their Peterborough counterparts. The team has shown character and skill in defeating Smiths Falls, LaSalle (of Kingston) and Brockville to get this far, he noted. Despite his discontent with some of the referee’s calls, Brockville coach Pete Atkinson was quoted in his hometown newspaper as calling Saturday’s game with Arnprior one of the best high school football games he has ever been involved with. Luimes agreed that both teams played well in cold and windy conditions. The

seconds left. Luimes said the team, which last qualified for the EOSSAA championship in 2007 when they lost to a Kingston school, was buoyed by a large turnout of 43 players this year. That gave the team the luxury of having to play only one player, Mark Moses, both on offence and defence. “That certainly has its advantages, especially in the fourth quarter,” Luimes said. The return of Andrews, after not playing last year, was a major boost as not only did he lead the team in rushing, he was its kicker, said the coach. “He showed up in great shape ... he was really serious about it,” he said, noting interest has been shown in him by university coaches. “He is powerful and has excellent speed,” Luimes said of the former McNab and Walter Zadow student, who is in his fifth year at ADHS. “No one is going to catch him from behind.” The addition of three players after they were ruled ineligible for the junior team also helped team depth, said Luimes. He said his coaching staff, including David Herrick, Steve Staye, Trevor Rosien and Nathan Mask, deserve a great deal of credit for ensuring the Redmen were well prepared for their games this year.

Young and old make anniversary event a success on and off the ice DAVE MCCORMICK Local team Mulvihill Insurance came out on top of the division on the strength of two victories in three games, giving them the top points in the division with four. Other teams in their division were local guys Bridgestreet Clean Cuts, along with Orleans and Renfrew. In other action, Bonds Decor lost in a shootout final to the Osgoode Outlaws in the Coors Lite final, and in the Molson Canadian final Kemptville College and the Flagg Creek Snappers of Williamsburg battled hard for the first half, but into the final frame Flagg pulled ahead and never looked back skating to a 4 -2 victory. In the Herzing College Division Chevy West (Myers Kanata) skated through their division with three victories, claiming top spot against local team Danny Macs Pub and Eatery, Open Roads of Stittsville, and the no HLers. Other local teams participating were Arnprior Bighorn and Arnprior Optimists, both competing hard but coming up short in their respective divisions. Saturday morning saw the kids take the ice in Atom and peewee action, The Stittsville Peewee Blaze won both their games in the peewee division, and Arnprior defeated Stittsville Knights in atom action. Other peewee teams participating were from Kanata and Stittsville. This caps off 25 years of an event that was first organized in six days. It ran for one day with 12 teams in 1985 and after 25 years more than 600 teams have participated and more than 8,400 participants have played, ranging in age from five years old for the kids levels, and this year MJ Blimkie of Renfrew played for the Millionaires once again in the mens division and he is over 70 years of age. It really shouldn’t hurt to be a child or a big kid. The festivities surrounding the event saw local band Catalyst rock a packed house at the Nick Smith centre community hall Friday evening. Participants and fans alike bid on auction items supplied by the many sponsors, and purchased raffle tickets for many other prizes helping raise money for the It Shouldn’t hurt to be a child program. Bernie McCormick’s baked goods alone raised $320 in 15 minutes Saturday afternoon. The money raised from this is going to Brodie Rafter, a young man of 14 fighting his second battle with cancer. Get well

The action heats up at the net during Friday evening’s exhibition game featuring the Synergy versus the Bulldogs. soon Brodie, all the best. Final figures are not in yet on how much in total was raised but initial estimates put the total over $10,000. Everyone must take credit who participated, entered a team, bought a raffle ticket, bid on a prize or sponsored the event. This year’s total will bring the amount raised over the years to over $210,000. We should all be reminded that the reason why we are so much more aware of what is happening with our children , child safety and laws for victims of crime is mainly because of two people Gary and Sharon Rosenfeldt. For anyone who ever had the great pleasure of meeting either individual they know. Last year February of 2009 Canada lost a hero - Gary passed away after battling cancer. This year’s event was dedicated to Gary, a special friend. Canada is a safer and gentler nation because of the Rosenfeldts, founders of Victims of Violence and the It Shouldn’t Hurt To Be a Child program. Please visit www.victimsofviolence.on.ca for more information on the charity and their mission. Thank you to all who attended, to all who support his event year after year, thank you to Jim Stack for his auctioning skills Friday night, and a special thank you to Glenn Arthur, director of Parks and Recreation Arnprior and the bar ladies who continue to add a personal touch to this event. Comments coming from the players who participate are always positive and reflect well on the town of Arnprior. Arnprior is a great town, with great business owners and great people, it has been my absolute pleasure to bring together the best town in the Ottawa Valley and the message and spirit of the Rosenfeldts for the past number of years through this event.

Packers in a dogfight for first place PETER CLARK peter.clark@metroland.com

The Perth Blue Wings are proving to be tough to catch, but the Arnprior Packers are giving it a good shot. The Packers (13-6-and2) won two more Eastern Ontario Junior Hockey League encounters on the weekend to stay within a point of the Valley Division leaders. Both came by 5-2 margins, as the Packers turned away the Pontiac Juniors and Almonte Thunder. Arnprior got a Taylor Collins goal to break a 11 deadlock in the second period, and three consecutive markers inside of a six-minute span in the final frame to put away the Pontiacs in Shawville Friday night. Brock Zielinski, newcomer Michael Byrne and Jesse Valdron clicked in the final stanza to go alongside the early Casey Doner and Collins tallies. The Packers played a solid defensive game in front of goaltender Matt Gagne, who was there when called upon with a

21-save performance. Collins counted two more goals Sunday night at the Nick Smith Centre, as the Packers broke free from a 2-2 deadlock with goals 2:56 apart midway through the second period. Braedon Moffatt, Colin Bradbury and Doner added singles to the Arnprior attack. Parker Davies and Steve Miller answered for the Thunder, briefly erasing a 2-0 deficit. BIG SHOTS The Packers doubled Almonte in shots 46-23 with veteran netminder Jeff Stout earning the win. The Packers have gotten their goals against back down in the past couple of weeks, something that obviously pleases coach and general manager Bill Griese. “We had to see things down,” the coach said. “It’s good to see the guys do it on their own with a team meeting. They realize getting two goals and two assists in a loss doesn’t feel as good as winning.”

The Packers, in dark jerseys, take on the Shawville Pontiacs in Shawville on Friday night. The Arnprior team came home with a 5-2 victory. The leadership of the veterans has also helped keep the puck out of the Arnprior net, Griese added. Griese is looking forward to a first-place showdown in Perth this Friday

Do your ears, nose and mouth have their own healing power? Nicolas Ruszkowski

But there is hope for one day eliminating such discomfort. By using the body’s natural openings to access tumours or damaged organs, some surgeons can successfully operate through the mouths, noses, ears (and other openings perhaps too awkward to mention) of patients. The Ottawa Hospital recently recruited just such a physician.

# 3850 Winky

# 3647 Blynx

Winky is a seven-month-old spayed female who is gentle and easy to handle. She was brought to the shelter with her brother to find new homes. Winky is a sweet, affectionate little cat who loves attention. She likes to be held and cuddled and is quite playful. Winky is a quiet kitten who likes other cats.

Blynx, a six-year-old neutered male, likes attention but is not demanding. He was brought to the shelter after his family moved and abandoned him with friends. He has been here since January and is a quiet cat who gets along with other cats and wellbehaved dogs. Blynx can be shy when he first meets you but warms up quickly. Once he knows you he is very affectionate and sweet. Blynx will make a great companion for his new home.

Supplies the shelter needs: liquid laundry soap, bleach and paper towel.

Pet Pics with Santa is scheduled for Saturday and Sunday, Dec. 11 and 12 at the Arnprior Mall. The shelter is collecting UPC codes from all bags of Whiskas dry cat food until the end of December 2010. You can call the Arnprior and District Humane Society at 613-623-0916 between noon and 5 p.m Monday to Saturday or visit www.arnpriorhumanesociety.ca

I had a grade 8 home room classmate named Chris. He was cool. He got good grades. He excelled at every sport. He was close friends with my secret “crush”. He intimidated me in every way, and I got to know him only from a distance. Until, one day, I learned that he would be away for a while because he had a mass growing in his brain. I was terrified – if it could happen to him, it could happen to me. Thankfully, after not too long, he came back. The growth had been benign.

Dr. Amin Kassam, a neurosurgeon trained at the University of Toronto and the University of Ottawa, is a pioneer of the Expanded Endonasal Approach (EEA), which uses nostrils as portals to access tumors in the brain and skull base, rather than a surgical opening at the top of the skull. Last month, teaming up with Ottawa Hospital ear-nose-and-throat surgeon Dr. Martin Corsten, Dr. Kassam successfully removed a tumour that had rooted itself behind the eye of patient Marion Fitzgerald, through her nostrils. Instead of the long recovery and pain management required in a traditional procedure, Marion took Tylenol with codeine to relieve a headache she had afterwards.

When we finally spoke, he told me his fear of having a malignant tumour, and how painful it would have been to be operated on through an opening in his skull. The thought made me wince.

While there is nothing routine about EEA surgery – or other techniques that use natural openings as portals to the rest of the body – the new approach begs an important question: how did God, or nature, actually intend for our ears, noses and mouths to be used?

It’s a technique still used for some forms of surgery. Other procedures, just as scary and invasive, permeate hospitals around the world. Pain is still part and parcel of medical treatment.

Arnprior rink fourth at Masters

Chris Gardner’s Arnprior rink won one tiebreaker, but fell to host Manitoba during playoff action at the Canadian Mixed Curling Championships in Morris last weekend. The Arnprior rink finished in a tie for third with New Brunswick and Manitoba, all with 7-4 records. The Ontario representative scored five in the seventh end to defeat New Brunswick 93, but ran out of gas in giving up two in the 10th end to lose 7-6 to

Manitoba in its second tiebreaker of the day. Manitoba upset second-place Nova Scotia 8-3, but lost the final 4-3 to Prince Edward Island’s Robert Campbell, who went 10-1 in round-robin play. Gardner’s rink had a chance to avoid the tiebreakers, but lost its last two round-robin games. The Arnprior team consisted of third Erin Morrissey, second Brad Kidd, lead Kim Brown and Gardner.

Arnprior peewee Packers at Silver Stick

peter.clark@metroland.com

It was a tough go for the Arnprior Peewee Packers at the Regional Silver Stick Hockey tournament in Pembroke last

weekend. The Packers yielded three unanswered third-period goals in a 4-1 setback to the neighbouring West Carleton Warriors, and then dropped a narrow 3-2 decision when the Stittsville Rams

scored with just 2:12 remaining in Friday games. With little to play for, the Peewee Packers went out and salvaged a 1-1 tie with the North Dundas Demons on a Jordan Warner marker in the opening

period Saturday morning. Warner had two goals in the tournament. Mitchell Courchesne and Colin Ryan had others. Nicholas Quade and Liam Benoite handled Arnprior net-

When they do appear locally, it is usually in late fall following a very wet late summer. As you know, a lot of rain fell between July and November. And rain continues to fall this month. So what is the connection between visits by Gray Jays and rain? The answer is tied to how Gray Jays survive the winter. They do not migrate and stay in their territories. They eat what they find, such as leftovers at a wolf kill. But mostly what they find is food that they secretly stashed away all through late summer and fall. Gray Jays stash thousands of

Recently I have had reports of two interesting birds being seen locally. Both are gray and both are from the north. However, one is a regular visitor to this region while the other rarely strays this far south. The birds? One was a Northern Shrike and the other a Gray Jay! Both species are about robinsize and share some features in their general appearance (gray and white dominate their feathers). But there are differences. Shrikes are found in open habitats and usually perch at the very top of a tree or shrub. Gray Jays are birds of coniferous woods and while they will perch atop a spruce they also sit in the middle of trees. Shrikes sport a black mask while the jays do not. The heftier bill of the shrike ends in a meathook tip for killing small prey. In summer Northern Shrikes inhabit the northern reaches of the muskeg. They appear here every winter in varying numbers. In some years as many as a dozen are recorded on our local Boxing Day Bird Count. Although they live all through the boreal forest, Gray Jays can be found in summer rather commonly in Algonquin Park.

pieces of berries, mushrooms, meat, etc. under loose bark and lichens on trees. Before it is hidden, the food is wrapped in the jay’s mouth with saliva produced in oversized glands. The saliva not only coats the food; it also helps it stick to a branch. Jays depend on the food remaining edible. While it is still unknown what exactly keeps the food free of bacteria and mould, Dan Strickland, the world’s expert on Gray Jays, has discovered a link between the food preservation and the type of tree that is stored on. Gray Jays seem to hide much of their food in spruces. Perhaps the saliva blanket absorbs preservative substances from those trees. Wet summers likely prevent stored food from staying fresh. Without sufficient food stores, Gray Jays may have to move. When that happens, we see them locally. Watch for both these species this winter. If a large gray bird comes to your feeder for seeds and suet, you likely have a Gray Jay. If one arrives and kills birds at your feeder, you have a Northern Shrike for sure!

Local artist awarded prize in international contest Paul Perreault’s ‘Return to Braeside’ wins major prize in Corel Quest for the Best contest Local artist Paul Perreault’s depiction of the historic Braeside train station entitled ‘Return to Braeside’, has won a major prize. The painting was one of five entries to be awarded prizes in the Corel Quest for the Best contest put on by the company this past summer, in celebration of its 25th anniversary. The painting, based on photos from the Arnprior Archives, brings the station to life as older local people may remember it back in the ‘50s. The contest featured works of art from artists in Canada, United States and Europe. For two months of the contest, people could log in each day and vote for their favourite picture. The 25 pictures with the highest number of votes in the end competed in the finals for firstto fifth-place prizes with a panel of judges selecting the winners. “I was overwhelmed by the number of local people voting for me every day, keeping me in the top 25 right up until the last day of voting,” said Perreault. “Word of the contest spread quickly on Facebook and I had people coming up to me in the street telling me they were voting for my picture. Unfortunately, I got knocked out of contention for the top prizes on the last day of the contest when a flurry of last-minute voting took place.” However, it wasn’t all bad news. Realizing that many entries just wouldn’t have the network of friends and family to vote them into the top 25, Corel awarded prizes to the five best paintings of the remaining entries, of which there were close to 300 from which to choose. “I didn’t suspect I’d win a prize since there was a larger pool of entries to be judged against and many of them were far better than what made the top 25.” Perreault said. He was shocked when he was notified in October that his piece was selected among the best in this prize category. For his efforts he will be getting an Apple ipad and a full

suite of Corel software. “Even if I hadn’t won a prize, the contest was fantastic for generating interest in my work,” Perreault said. “Web traffic on my site went up substantially during the contest and the exposure resulted in a number of sales of Return to Braeside and my latest canvas print, Bridge to the Past. It was lots of fun being in the contest and an honour to be chosen among the many beautiful paintings that were entered.” He is thankful to all the people who took time each day to vote for his painting, which kept him in the running for so long. You can view the winning entries online at www.corelquestforthebest.com or see Perreault’s work on his website at www.paulperreault.ca/prints.

SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 27 2:00 - 4:00 225 ISABELLA STREET

Shirley Kelly,

In two novels of historical fiction based on event in McNab and Perth, author David Mulholland’s characters illustrate the emotional and psychological impact of history. “It’s beyond the scope of the historian to report their subject’s thoughts,: Mulholland says. “But by imagining what those thoughts might have been, the novelist can show how people’s actions created the historical record. That’s the approach I take to writing my novels.” In McNab, set in the Ottawa Valley, Scottish Highlands and United States, the author portrays the struggle of real 19th century immigrants against the tyranny of Chief Archibald McNab, who attempts to impose the Scottish feudal system on them. Matters are further complicated when McNab’s piper has a turbulent relationship with an Irish lass who challenges his beliefs about marriage and women. Her passionate independence takes his heart on a wild ride. In DUEL, Mulholland claims to have uncovered a manuscript written by an obsessive blacksmith who sheds new light on events that led to the fatal duel between law students Robert Lyon and John Wilson in Perth on June 13, 1833. But is the blacksmith’s passionate narrative fact or fiction? The author is leaving it up to readers to decide. For more information, go to www.davidmulholland.ca. Both novels retail for $19.95. They are available in bookstores, or can be ordered from General Store Publishing House at wwwgsph.com.

The federal Opposition is putting jobs at Arnprior Aerospace and Haley Industries at risk, says Renfrew-NipissingPembroke MP Cheryl Gallant. In a harshly-worded news release Nov. 5, Gallant said threats by the Opposition to cancel the F-35 aircraft purchase could cost many Canadian jobs, “many right here in Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke.” “Now that Canada has committed to replacing the 28-year-old CF-18 Hornet, Canadian industrial opportunities could exceed $12 billion for the production of the

new aircraft,” she said. “In accordance with the industrial participation agreements our Conservative government has signed, all 19 Canadian companies manufacturing items for the F-35 will also repair and overhaul those components for the entire global fleet. Those job opportunities will be lost if the opposition coalition get their way,” said Gallant. The MP said crucial aerospace jobs are in jeopardy. “F-35 Joint Strike Fighter international contractors are reluctant to consider Canadian bids as long as uncer-

tainty lingers around our nation’s participation in this project. “Companies in Renfrew and in Arnprior like Arnprior Aerospace who are part of the aerospace supply chain want to see this contract go forward as it benefits the entire industry. “Given the way the jet deal has been structured – with many other countries involved, including with some of our closest western allies, there is no truth that putting the deal to re-negotiation would benefit Canadians,” Gallant said.

The news release further states that a report prepared for the Aerospace Industries Association of Canada by Deloitte and Touche pointed out their companies employ over 80,000 Canadians in hightech, high paying jobs in a $24-billion-ayear industry. Describing the economic recovery as “still fragile,” Gallant accuses Opposition parties of “putting narrow partisan interests ahead of the interests of Canadian aerospace workers and their families and the needs of our Canadian Forces.”
