Council Belleville hosts football provincials backs local police force By Jack Evans
News - Belleville - The word which leapt to the lips of Police Chief Cory McMullen Monday following a marathon hours-long debate on policing and a narrow 5 - 4 recorded vote was RELIEF. The motion was to request a “police service delivery proposal for policing of Belleville by the Ontario Provincial Police.” Its one-vote loss means that council will receive the information from the OPP on service delivery review for information, essentially confirming that the Belleville Police Service, which has been Belleville’s bulwark for protection since 1836, will continue without threat of cost comparisons and service levels with those offered by the larger force. The recorded vote followed a lengthy, almost court-like presentation by Chief McMullen on services the force now offers, comparisons to other communities and moves for potential cost savings in excess of $1 million per year, plus continuing jobs, especially for civilian employees. That was followed by an even longer and intense crossexamination, with various council members, especially Councillor Jackie Denyes, checking data and reasons for many of the report’s contents. The crux came after a recess and council had to deal with the report as contained in the agenda motion. Each member of council had the opportunity to present their position and they included some impassioned appeals plus concepts that were outside the box of just Belleville. Main champion for the latter was Councillor Taso Christopher, who said he supported the OPP study mainly because it opened up opportunities to work toward a Quinte regional police force which he felt was more important than whether such a force would be OPP or local. Some other members supported the regional concept for future cost savings, including Chief McMullen, but she noted that the OPP has never gone into such an arrangement yet. Mayor Neil Ellis said he had discussed a regional force with his fellow mayors in Quinte West and Prince Edward County but their position was they weren’t interested unless it was with the OPP. Mayor Ellis was fixated on the looming costs of a new $20-million police station, arguing that, “Once we build it, it’s too late to turn back.” He figured the cost review might justify whether keeping a local force is worth that cost or not.

New courthouse on display
By Steve Jessel
News - Belleville - A strong connection to city hall and a more welcoming, stress-free environment are being touted as high points of the new Quinte Integrated Courthouse, as media were given a guided tour of the recently completed, 171,000-square-foot structure this past week. The tour was limited in scope, avoiding sensitive areas such as holding cells and touring only three of the buildPlease see “Council” page 2 ing’s 11 courtrooms, but had a strong
focus on the accessibility and welcoming nature of the new courthouse, something project architect Nicola Casciato of WZMH Architects said was key when designing the new structure. “It’s an environment where there’s a lot of stressful people, and you have to be cognizant of that,” he said. Upon entering the courthouse, the first thing visitors will likely notice is the bevy of security features in the massive main lobby, including airport-style
metal detectors as soon as you enter the building. Security was a huge concern when designing the building said Casciato, and as a result the courthouse has three distinct areas of travel for each of the public, staff and prisoners, meaning they never have to cross paths outside the courtroom. Also contained on the main floor are the two largest courtrooms in the building, including what’s known as the cer-

emonial courtroom. Featuring an adjustable viewing area, state-of-the-art visual and audio equipment and accessibility options, the main courtroom can seat roughly 100 spectators, while prisoners are contained in a sheer glass case in the centre of the room. Sheer glass is a recurring theme in the new courthouse, as a number of huge windows look out onto city hall and the Moira River on various floors. Three courtrooms also have similar views, something that’s a bit of a rarity in courthouses according to Casciato. He said that when designing the building, strong consideration was given to the proximity to city hall and the possible benefits of such a location. “We wanted those two buildings to almost talk to each other across the river,” Casciato said. “There’s not a lot of cities that have rivers go through them, and so here

we thought it was a great opportunity to have these two buildings kind of in dialogue with each other.” Finding the right location was a task that wasn’t taken lightly, said Infrastructure Ontario senior project manager Bob Price. Working in partnership with the city, the corner of James Street and Bridge Street was chosen thanks in part to its proximity to the downtown core, and Price said the hope is that the new building will help encourage growth and revitalization on that side of the river. Price pointed to the repair and improvements to James Street as very minor early developments that hopefully could encourage growth in the future. “It’s hard to say, really,” Price said when asked what impact the courthouse could have on the surrounding area. “How it will develop with some of these buildings around here is hard to say.”

2 Belleville EMC - Thursday, September 12, 2013
He agreed that compared to other area cities Belleville has a “low police cost budget,” as pointed out by the chief. “We need more information on police systems and costs,” he concluded, as did three other members of council, especially Councillor Denyes, who originally moved the motion to consider an OPP proposal. Despite loud outbursts of applause from the large audience in support of Chief McMullen and the local force, she contended: “The silent majority is not here … and I don’t think that matters. The police chief had her chance to present her position; council must now give the OPP a chance and try to get the best value for our taxpayers’ dollars.” What seemed to be the most documented speeches came from Councillor Jack Miller, who reviewed data he had collected first hand from other municipalities and other documents showing OPP officers will soon become the highest paid in Ontario; some communities that had opted for studies turned down the OPP because of high costs and the Ontario auditor gener-
al had been critical of lack of cost effectiveness of the OPP. At best, he said, to truly assess public input, such a study should be “put on the ballot for the election next year.” Councillors Pat Culhane, Garnet Thompson and Jodie Jenkins were succinct in expressing full support for the local force and saw no need to force costs and tensions on city staff and citizens for a study. Councillor Tom Lafferty said he originally supported the city force, but changed his mind to obtain full information from both possibilities. Commenting after the meeting, Chief McMullen said: “the public was very supportive of us all summer long. We got many calls from people wanting to help us out.” Her 60-plus page report outlined changes she had already made since taking over two years ago plus the retirement of six senior officers over the next few months leading to replacing only four, increased revenue opportunities and perhaps off-loading some bylaw enforcement activities to special officers.

Council supports Terry Fox Run revival News - Belleville - A bubblingly enthusiastic Vicki Samara addressed Belleville Council Monday to proclaim that, with approval of the Terry Fox Foundation, she has taken over the annual Terry Fox Run, which had lapsed in recent years; the run will be restored this month on Sunday, September 15. The run is open to anyone to walk, run, ride a bicycle or whatever, she said, with no minimum pledge amount required and no commitment to cover any speciďŹ c distance. Headquarters for the run will be the Lions Pavilion in Zwicks Park from 8 a.m. to noon. Pledge sheets are available on line at
the Terry Fox Foundation, she said. She recalled how the run was started by young Canadian hero Terry Fox. Although he died near Thunder Bay along his famous cross-country route, â€œThe run wonâ€™t be over until cancer is defeated,â€? she said, noting she lost her own father to the deadly disease while she was still a young woman. Other than promoting the runâ€™s revival and encouraging council members and the public to support it, she asked for a waiving of the $100 park use fee, to which council readily agreed. Also approved was a request from the Chamber of Commerce and the Downtown Business Improvement Area
to close off the main portion of Front Street for the sixth annual Flavours of Fall Festival on Saturday, September 28, of which the annual Culture Days Weekend, September 27 to 29, will be part. â€œWeâ€™re going to bring the farm to Front Street,â€? said one of the presenters outlining a wide range of special family events, including entertainment, pumpkin carving contest and food sales as well as the popular chili cook-off. Mayor Neil Ellis said he was pleased to see the Chamber and the DBIA working together on the project and hoped such co-operation in the community will continue and expand. Representatives of Williams Hotels
appealed a decision by city staff to deny their request for a lower speed limit along part of Bell Boulevard West to avoid costs of putting in a turning lane on top of many charges already involved in their new hotel project. Staff argued that a turning lane would be needed on that road despite the speed limit because of expected new development, but council agreed that project could be left to a later date and the speed limit will probably have to be reduced along the entire section eventually anyhow. Also supported
were requests from the Gleaners Food Bank, a Run for Their Lives event on October 5 at Riverside Park and a request from the local Alzheimer Society to support a â€œnational dementia strategy.â€? Glen Collins of Welch and Company attended to present the cityâ€™s audited statements for the end of 2012 and assured council that the city remains in healthy ďŹ nancial shape.

News - Belleville - The love of art can take many forms; some people enjoy painting, some people enjoy music, and some people take art to lengths that other people could only dream of. Luckily for Belleville, all that and more are contained within the new non-proďŹ t the Core Arts and Culture Centre located in the old Belleville library, and with an open house planned for September 19, the new organization is ready to show the community that theyâ€™re open for business. â€œThe mandate of the community programs that weâ€™re trying to develop is to really have the community, invite them in, and experience all kinds of arts and cultural opportunities that they really wouldnâ€™t be able to perhaps do, through economics or limitations for whatever reason,â€? said Cheryl Whiteman, executive director for the Core Arts and Culture Centre. Starting at 6 p.m. at the Core building at 223 Pinnacle Street, the open house features a host of fall programs and activities ready and set for registration. Instrumental music, visual arts, pottery, drama and creative writing are just a few programs that will be on display, accompanied by entertainment including performances by the Quinte Symphony and the Quinte Childrenâ€™s Theatre, who are also both housed within the building. â€œIt feels exciting; itâ€™s a lot of work but
it feels really exciting,â€? said Whiteman, when asked what it felt like to be so close to the opening. â€œIt feels like the right thing to do for our community â€Ś to really honour this building and what it once was, and the fact that itâ€™s downtown and it is accessible to so many, and itâ€™s being underutilized.â€?

Cancer One for All fund raiser October 4 treatment opens eyes Prior to his diagnosis, Martin was an avid sailor of 30 years, and owned his own sailboat that he regularly took out with his teenage son. Martin is no longer to sail independently because of the prosthesis, but has found a program, Quinte SailAbility that allowed him to get out on the water six times this summer. As a way of giving back to the cancer centre and in an effort to help fund further cancer research, Martin organized the ﬁrst annual A Race for a Cure sailing regatta on August 24. Eight different boats participated, and when all is said and done the event ﬁgures to raise roughly $5,000, double the original goal of $2,500. What’s even more impressive is that the event was organized in just three weeks, leading Martin to set a goal of $10,000 for next year when the event returns. “Geoff did a great job of pulling it together in such a short time … to raise that amount of money as quickly as he did is phenomenal,” said Brad Martin, fund-raising co-ordinator for the Hastings Prince Edward County Unit of the Canadian Cancer Society. “We can’t thank Geoff enough for deciding to donate to us, and we’re thankful that there’s such great people in the community that think of the Cancer Society.”

Events - Quinte West - One of the new additions to the annual Doors Open Ontario on September 14 is the Couch House at 224 Dundas Street West in Trenton. Local historian Wendy Ouellette says the house was once the home of Ken Couch who was mayor of the town of Trenton from 1947 to 1952. It is now the home of John and Marie Hockett who will display their vintage lighting and Victorian furnishings on the tour, as well as artefacts relating to Mayor Couch from the collection of the Trent Port Historical Society. Parking is limited on Dundas Street West so visitors are encouraged to take the public transit bus instead of parking on the street at that location. “We are running a bus to the downtown sites and out to JB Print Solutions and Research Casting International,” says Wendy Ouellette of the Trent Port Historical Society. The bus will start at 10 a.m. from city Hall, going to Arts Quinte West gallery, Trenton Town Hall 1861, Couch-Hockett House, QW Fire Station 1, Trenton Greenbelt area, St. Andrew’s Presbyterian, St. George’s Anglican, and then to JB Print and Research Casting. “The bus is free of charge, provided by Trent Port Historical

Other sites on the Quinte West list include Frankford B&B at 86 Mill Street (1852), Montrose Inn (1916) on Old Highway 2, The Garden Network at 57 Maybee Road in Stockdale, Old Stockdale Mill restaurant (1824), Jack Lang Memorial Trail (441 Front Street), Montrose Inn, National Air Force Museum of Canada, Quinte West ﬁre station #1, Arts Quinte West gallery (84 Dundas West), Trenton Town Hall 1861 (55 King Street), St. George’s Anglican Church (1845), St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church (1853), St. George’s cemetery, Ontario Genealogical Society (in the library), Afghanistan Repatriation Memorial, Research Castings International (museum artefact preparation) at 15 Dufferin Avenue, and JB Print Solutions at 12 Carrying Place Road showing old printing techniques.

ENSS track update
Dear Editor, The following is an open letter to East Northumberland Secondary School (ENSS) students, staff, parents, and Brighton and surrounding community members. On behalf of our school board, I want to update everyone on the status of the track project at ENSS. I also wish to
Bert Lewis & Son Jewellers Ltd. We Repair
express my sincere regret that things have not gone as well as we all hoped they would. As you may be aware, this joint communityboard project involves an over $1-million enhancement to East Northumberland Secondary School through the construction of a six-lane rubberized asphalt track, with lighting, irrigation, drainage and ﬁeld upgrades. You also may be aware that the original contractor for this work defaulted on the project in the spring of this year. This has resulted in our board co-ordinating the completion of the track through a bonding agency and the enlisting of a second construction company. We regret that this process has not been as smooth or as fast as we had initially hoped, and has resulted in signiﬁcant delays in the project’s completion. The current contractor has resumed work on the track, and we are still hopeful of completing the project as soon as possible. We

expect the large majority of the work to be done this fall with the ﬁnal coating of the track likely to take place next spring. As a board, we very much appreciate and understand that this new track has been made possible only through a tremendous community fund-raising effort, as well as the strong partnership we have with the municipalities of Brighton, Cramahe and Quinte West. I want to assure everyone that we are 100 per cent committed to ensuring this project is completed properly. All of us very much look forward to the day when the Blue Dragons and Brighton community at large can use this wonderful new facility to its fullest extent. Sincerely, W. R.

News - Belleville - In many ways, Geoff Martin’s life was shattered the day he broke his femur and shattered his hip installing a sliding door at his cottage in December of 2012. After being taken to hospital, Martin, a resident of Belleville was diagnosed with chondroscarcoma cancer, a rare form of bone cancer, and had the bones in his leg from the knee up replaced with a metal prosthesis via surgery. Seven months and more than 40 radiation treatments later, Martin is still ﬁghting, but he’s not the only one. Much of Martin’s treatment took place at the former Kingston Regional Cancer Centre (now known as the Cancer Centre of South Eastern Ontario) and during his time there, Martin came to understand not only the difﬁculties cancer patients go through, but also about the dedication of the staff that make the centre work. “What I saw down in Kingston at the cancer centre, how compassionate the people were … doctors, nurses … it just opened my eyes to see what these people go through every day,” Martin said. “Forty some odd days of [treatment] and they remember who you are by name; they don’t have to look you up on a computer. They take the time to get to know you, and talk to you … they just make it easier.”

OPINION Syria: An Unexpected Rabbit Editorial - When someone pulls a rabbit out of a hat, it’s natural to be suspicious. Magicians are professionals in deceit—and so are diplomats. But sometimes the rabbit is real. On Monday morning, the world was heading into the biggest crisis in years: a looming American attack on Syria, a Russian response that could set off the first major confrontation between Washington and Moscow since the Cold War, and the possible spread of the fighting from Syria to neighbouring countries. Or alternatively, a Congressional rejection of President Barack Obama’s plans that would have left him a lame duck for the next three years. By Tuesday morning all that had changed. A Russian proposal for Syria to get rid of all its chemical weapons was promptly accepted by the Syrian foreign minister, Walid alMoallem, and the Senate vote on Obama’s planned strikes on Syria was postponed, probably for weeks. If Syria keeps its word, the vote may never be held. What a difference a day makes. Now for the cavils. Nothing has been signed. Nothing has even been written up for signature. Maybe Syria is just playing for time. Perhaps Obama will want to pursue the Syrian regime legally for the poison gas attacks that he claims it has already carried out (though he sounded very relieved on hearing the news and didn’t mention any “red lines”). The sequence of events, so far as can be made out, was as follows. At the Moscow G20 summit last week, Obama and Russian president Vladimir Putin had a one-to-one chat on the side at which one of them broached the possibility of persuading Syria to give up its chemical weapons entirely. Which one isn’t clear, and the idea was not pursued by either of them. Yet both men had reason to want such a thing, for the alternative was that Obama would lead the United States into another Middle Eastern war, not exactly what he was elected for—or that he would not get Congressional approval to do so and end up completely discredited. Putin would feel obliged to respond to a U.S. attack on his Syrian ally, but that could end up with Russian missiles shooting down American planes. There was then silence until Monday, when John Kerry, the U.S. Secretary of State, gave an off-the-cuff reply in London to a question about whether Syria’s President Bashar alAssad could avoid an American attack. “Sure. He could turn
over every bit of his [chemical] weapons to the international community within the next week, without delay,” said Kerry with a shrug. “But he isn’t about to.” Then Kerry got on a plane to fly home, and halfway across the Atlantic he got a call from the Russian foreign minister, Sergei Lavrov, saying that he was about to announce that Russia would ask Syria to put all its chemical weapons storage facilities under international control, join the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons, and finally destroy them all. The Syrian foreign minister happened to be in Moscow, so within an hour he declared that Assad’s regime “welcomes Russia’s initiative, based on the Syrian government’s care about the lives of our people and security of our country.” By Monday evening Obama was saying that the Russian plan “could potentially be a significant breakthrough,” and the pot was off the boil. The whole thing, therefore, was made up on the fly. That doesn’t necessarily mean that it won’t work, but it is a proposal that comes without any of the usual preparation that precedes a major diplomatic initiative. The reason we don’t know the details is that there aren’t any. What we do know is that everybody—Obama, Putin and Assad—is clearly desperate to avoid going to war, and that gives us reason to hope. Two things that have to happen fast, if this rabbit is really going to run. First, Syria has to sign the Chemical Weapons Convention and ratify the Biological and Toxin Weapons Convention right away. That could be done within a week, and it would legally commit it to getting rid of all its chemical weapons and the factories that make them. Second, the United Nations Security Council has to pass a resolution demanding that Syria reveal the size and location of its entire stock of chemical weapons and place them under international control. France has already put such a resolution on the Security Council’s agenda; the test will be whether Russia vetoes it. It probably won’t. There is a great deal of suspicion in Washington that this is merely a delaying tactic meant to stall an American attack and sap the already weak popular support in the United States for military action. Moreover, it will be hard to send international troops in to secure Syria’s chemical weapons (at least forty storage sites, plus some weapons in the hands of military units) unless there is a ceasefire in the civil war now raging all over the country. But the American military will be pleased, because they were really unhappy about the job that Obama was giving them, and Obama himself looks like a man who has been granted a new lease of life. There will be time to try to make this work.
LETTER TO THE EDITOR
Is this really progress? Dear Editor, A military obstacle called a cheveaux-de-frise found use in the late Middle Ages as a defence against cavalry charges. Imagine a large, long log studded with spears, sword blades and metal bric-a-brac projecting in all directions and then regard the new phenomenon or real-estate signs that have recently been sprouting up on the corners of our rural roads. Not so long ago there were laws against the disfiguring of roadways and public land and to this day, these laws are upheld north of Bancroft and Northbrook where the countryside still looks like, well, country, and not some crummy, ill-disciplined shopping mall. Formerly such signs were thought to be invasive and distracting by a generation of better planners than now exist,
hence our dismay that the still attractive Municipality of Trent Mills “is currently reviewing its sign by-law” under pressure from “the people who sell real estate.” (Trent Hills Independent, August 25, 2013) Can this new generation of home buyers not read maps, even with GPS? Oh dear, here we go again, dumb and backwards. But if we’re going to deface the countryside, let’s do it right. Add surveillance devices to the signs so they encode the potential house buyer in passing. Then, when they overshoot on the point of sale, an alarm will go off, thus permitting the Realtors of Ontario to abuse both the landscape and the soundscape simultaneously. That’s progress!

Frosh week chant digs deep beneath the gutter By Bill Freeman Editorial - As far as scandals go it’s not Penn State in size nor in horror but St. Mary’s University on the east coast and the University of British Columbia on the west are on the serving end of some of the worst publicity imaginable after frosh week sex chants that suggested raping underage girls was a thing Huskie and Thunderbird guys should aspire to. Only they used the phrase “nonconsenting” in their deplorable chant because they needed something to denote the “N” in the word “YOUNG” that was part of their disgraceful boozed-up rapping. At St. Mary’s it was frosh from across campus while at UBC it was during Commerce Undergraduate Society frosh events. Higher education? More like a celebration of lower education by frosh week organizers, upper year students all, who cling to a sense of entitlement because no one has come after them until this year when social media caught them dead to rights jacked up on waves of rampaging stupidity. The reaction to events at both schools—the chants were almost identical riffing on the letters in the word YOUNG—has been swift and condemnatory but it remains to be seen if the penalties will be adequately severe. At St. Mary’s student president Jared Penny and his female vice president Carrigan Desjardins both resigned although Penny in a flight of brazen obtuseness says he will run again. We can only imagine the humiliation Desjardins must feel as a woman in charge of organizing the frosh week events and approving mass chanting by lager-headed 17- and 18-year-olds about non-consenting sex (that would be rape) with underage girls. The bigger question is why so many of these privileged teens, happy to be attending one of Canada’s better small universities, would arrive on campus and then quickly fall in with the herd in demonstrations of criminal thinking. Future leaders comfortable enough with public chants about sexually assaulting underage girls; comfortable to the point of fearing no punishment or sanction from the university generally or specifically. At St. Mary’s the chant has apparently been part of frosh week events since 2009 yet it took until 2013 for the university’s governing body, including president Colin Dodds, to become aware of the outrageous
antics. So far the only chastisement faced by the frosh week leaders is that they must attend a sensitivity training course; the executive has been ordered to participate in a session on sexual violence and consent. St. Mary’s has called it a teachable moment. We think it’s a little bit more than a teachable moment. Just as bellowing racist and anti-Semitic epithets in front of a synagogue is more than a teachable moment. Observers are absolutely right when they say that an event like this, and its sheer carefreeness, reinforces rape culture which remains a depressingly persistent presence in our society. First-year university students arrive on campus fresh out of high school and feel that publicly condoning sexual assault is an appropriate and fun thing to do—with no shame, no moral self-reflection and no apparent consciousness of right or wrong. Shallow personalities swimming upstream with all the mindlessness they can muster. Says the heroically blunderheaded, and now former student president Jared Perry: “This is a huge learning experience for myself, my executive team and all the orientation week leaders. Hopefully we’ll be able to implement some sustainable practices that will help tackle this.” Sustainable practices? That sounds more like a federal senator trying to rationalize the overexpensing of refreshments and a second residence. A second-year psychology female student quoted by the CBC said: “It wasn’t a big deal to me. I’m not a feminist kind of person. It didn’t affect me personally.” A psychology student maybe but not much of an intellect or one with an ounce of understanding about the magnitude of the offence caused by the YOUNG frosh choir. Sadly, this is not just a St. Mary’s problem; the event and the fallout certainly is but the current that gives life to social atrocities like this runs much deeper than one campus or one place. We should never ever lose sight of the fact that 60 per cent of all sexual assault-abuse victims are under the age of 17 or that of every 100 incidents of sexual assaults only six are reported to the police and that in Canada there are 1,397 sexual assaults every day. The chant is very much more than a “teachable moment.”

News - Belleville - A Cappella Quinte, the local male barbershop chorus, is holding an open house on the evening of Tuesday, September 17. For men and students who are interested in singing, here’s an opportunity to find out everything you wanted to know about the old-fashioned barbershop quartet and its unique a cappella (no musical accompaniment) style of singing. Once associated with old songs like I’ll Take You Home Again Kathleen, and Down By the Old Mill Stream, today’s barbershoppers continue to revel in such beloved old chestnuts. But the range of music now spans into contemporary songs like I Believe in Music, and You Raise Me Up. This special evening to introduce people to barbershop is in the back hall of Calvary Temple on Dundas Street West starting at 7 o’clock. There will be opportunities to experience barbershop as part of a chorus, see how a quartet is put together, a history on how the international Barbershop Harmony Society started out 75 years ago, and free refreshments. You can also learn about the local chapter’s annual Christmas season tour of retirement and nursing homes singing carols and how you can participate. The Quinte chapter, formerly known as The Trentones, now embraces around 30 members spanning the Quinte area from Brighton through Deseronto and Prince Edward County. Special scholarship arrangements for membership are available for students.

News - Quinte West - City staff is recommending that the road allowances at Sandercock Road between Meyers Creek Road and the CPR tracks be conveyed to the Department of National Defence. “The Department of National Defence is current owner of all surrounding lands of the opened and unopened road allowance,” pointed out city clerk DonnaLee Craig to the Corporate and Financial Services committee on September 3. The city agreed in 2009 to transfer the road allowances for that area. The Department of National Defence has plans for an expansion of the base which has included expropriation of private land. The Joint Task Force 2 will take over a large portion of that property north of the base. JTF 2 was created in 1993 taking over from the RCMP for federal counter terrorism and located near Ottawa at Dwyer Hill Training Centre. The unit was used in Afghanistan in 2001 for International Special Operations. “The city of Quinte West on July 30, 2013, received the official go-
ahead from the Department of National Defence to acquire the subject property,” Craig notes. The Public Works department had been upgrading the road allowance since 2009 to provide access to the north side of the Wing. “The city of Quinte West will pay all legal fees required to register the conveyance of the unopened road allowance as well as the open road allowance [Sandercock Road],” Craig added. Terry Cassidy asked about the cost. Craig said it would be between $500 and $700 at the registry office. Chris Angelo, director of Public Works and Environmental Services, said the report from 2009 showed that the benefits in declaring it surplus are greater than maintaining it. “It benefits the base,” he added. He noted the city gets a lot of revenue from the expansion at the base. Cassidy asked if under normal circumstances the cost would be assessed to the landowner. Angelo said that would be accurate. The committee approved the recommendation which still has to go to council on September 23.

News - Brighton - Thanks to a philanthropic gesture from a local real estate company, the Brighton Arts Council (BAC) will have a new winter home. The building, at 28 Main Street, is the former location of the Brighton Royal LePage office and they’re still paying the rent until next summer. “We’re paying for it anyway,” said Royal LePage sales representative Alan Russell. When BAC officials approached him about the possibility of a site on Main Street during the winter months, he agreed. “When I talked to the owner of the company about it, he said, ‘if somebody else can get some use out of it, wonderful, let’s help the comBrighton Arts Council president Terry Denyes is all smiles on the weekend munity.’” “From a business point of view, with outside the new winter home for the local arts organization at 28 Main something happening at the location, Street. Photo: Ray Yurkowski more people will see it,” added Russell. “On a personal level, I like the location there better than this one [across the street]. For one, there’s more traffic.” To kick off the new downtown digs, the Brighton Photography Club will be Home Heating Fuels running a two-week show, starting this Budget Plans week, featuring local shutterbugs. Propane “To have something this great just fall Commercial & Farm Fuels in our lap, things are looking good,” said Shell Lubricants BAC president Terry Denyes. “It’s an opportunity to carry on with business as Furnaces & Fireplaces usual during the winter months. We’re 305 Bell Blvd. • 613-968-2900 or 1-866-330-3325 not just a seasonal operation anymore.” www.fergussonenergy.com The plan is to turn the space into a full-time gallery along with providing space for workshops. “Things will be happening here,” said Denyes. “This summer was great with lots going on, so you don’t want to close up shop for six months. We want to keep the momentum going and it gives BAC a presence in downtown Brighton.” When the storefront idea came up, there wasn’t a single negative comment from anyone in the more than 200-strong BAC membership. And they’ll be busy over the next few weeks. “We might be stretching ourselves a little thin through the Applefest weekend,” says Denyes. “We’ll have the storefront gallery and the Applefest Artists Village at the community centre, which, this year, is huge.” The Gates gallery, just outside of Presqu’ile Provincial Park, will continue operations through the end of October for “Arts Month” celebrations. The problem there is the building is not winterized. “This is good for Brighton,” said BAC past president Ron Waddling. “And it’s a wonderful move by the BAC. This could really become a downtown arts hub.”

Events - Trenton - The 23rd annual Scottish Irish Festival went ahead despite a rainy day Saturday. “We are praying for sunshine,” said chair Beth Cleaton at the opening ceremonies. She said last year Mother Nature dealt them a devastating blow ﬂooding out the festival for the ﬁrst time. But organizers simply went back to work planning the next year’s event. “The festival is a premier event,” she said. “We want to keep it working.” She commended organizers for an excellent Friday night military tattoo which went off without a hitch or even a drop of rain. “The ceilidh with Poor Angus kept the house rockin’,” she said. The new base commander Colonel David Lowthian was dressed in the traditional Air Force tartan accompanied by his wife Nancy. “I’m happy to be here,” he said. Chief Warrant Ofﬁcer Sandor Gyuk, also in a kilt, was there with his wife Elizabeth, and a little white Scotty dog at his feet wearing the blue tartan scarf. Other important people on the stage included Fire Chief John Whelan and OPP Inspector Reynolds as well as representatives from 413 Wing, Chamber of Commerce and the city. MPP Rob Milligan wore his Irish wool sweater and cap he brought back from his recent holidays in Ireland with his wife. “We left the kids behind with some food and water,” he said. Milligan said the timely tour of the whole isle of Ireland was lovely and it only rained one day, although there was a bit of drizzle and sun, on and off. He also managed to kiss the Blarney Stone! The rain did not deter the heavy events from going on in the ﬁeld next to the pavilion. Guinness record breaking Kevin Fast threw the caber in front of the stage. Fast obtained his 19th world record by throwing the caber 14 times in three minutes, beating the world record of seven. It was part of the highland games tradition from northern Scotland which began over one thousand years ago. Vendors in the ﬁeld sold souvenirs and sweaters, kilts and swords from Ireland and Scotland, and food stuffed with

It’s time to tune up the violins
Entertainment - Belleville - Quinte Symphony will soon be starting rehearsals for a busy new season for 2013-2014. The first concert is “Hallowe’en Spooktacular” set for Sunday, October 20, at 2 p.m. in Bridge Street United Church.

The orchestra’s annual pre-Christmas concert will be on Sunday, December 15, featuring the Hastings and Prince Edward
Children’s Choir under Rudolf Heijdens. The venue is to be announced. Two spring concerts will be held on March 9 with a special program of classic favourites designed for mothers on Mother’s Day weekend, May 10 and 11. The Saturday, May 10, will be an evening concert in Belleville, with a repeat of the same program on Sunday afternoon, in Picton’s Regent Theatre. The orchestra continues to need experienced string players, especially violinists. For more information, contact Jack Evans by email <email@example.com>, or telephone 613-967-3970.
Advisory committee frustrated Major contracts awarded with little progress By Jack Evans
News - Brighton - A delegation from the Brighton Accessibility Advisory Committee expressed their frustration at last week’s municipal council meeting. Since 2009, and through two separate municipal councils, the group has been making recommendations with an eye to realizing the provincial mandate of a fully accessible Ontario by 2025. But those proposals are falling on deaf ears says committee chairperson Liz Riel. The local Accessibility Plan was developed in accordance to the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act in the summer of 2007 by two Loyalist College students. Two years later, the committee was established. Their
mandate: to advise council on the preparation, implementation and effectiveness of the plan with the intent to enhance the ability of people with disabilities to have equal access to opportunities within the municipality. “It became apparent our effort to give advice regarding barriers was not appreciated,” Riel told council. “Information from staff regarding progress has not been forthcoming. “Now, four years later, the committee is still struggling to get some of the same issues resolved. I think this council should be embarrassed for being unsupportive of your mandated responsibilities. We need to find a better way to work together and make Brighton more accessible.”
Riel acknowledged some improvements: the new community centre; some renovations to the municipal building on Alice Street and a new accessible addition to the public works building on Sharp Road as well as some sidewalk repairs. “They are appreciated,” she said. “However, we do not understand why the removal of the rest of the barriers is taking so long to be achieved. There are still some items from the 2007 list that have not been corrected. “The committee has been making recommendations for years that have been accepted by council and have never been heard from again. Our patience is nearing an end.” “Council needs to be aware
Oliver hearing expected to wrap up this month
“I hope it’s found that [Oliver] didn’t breach the code of conduct,” Hurley said. “He wants to resume his role on the police board.” Foley back in 2011. Recent testimony has focused on the divisive board, headed by Oliver, that allowed rumours and speculation to continue in regards to the chief’s last-minute extension. Testimony has also focussed on Oliver being critical of previous board members’ decisions. Oliver’s attorney, Patrick Hurley, said he had put forward a “notice of a constitutional question” to the Attorney General, but has not yet gotten a response, thus the delay in the proceedings. The hearing may seem like a court case, as it contains a defence and prosecution team, but it’s not investigating any criminal wrongdoing. Rather, it’s investigating whether Oliver breached a code of conduct for members of police services boards. Oliver became chair of the
Stirling-Rawdon Police Services board in May 2011, but has been under suspension for the length of the hearing, which has unfolded over several months. Hurley said he expects the matter to come to an end soon. The September 25 meeting, he said, “is scheduled to be the final day of arguments. I don’t expect it to continue longer.” After both sides present their final arguments, two adjudicators will be in charge of making a ruling. “I hope it’s found that [Oliver] didn’t breach the code of conduct,” Hurley said. “He wants to resume his role on the police board.”
News - Belleville - The final day of a hearing on Stirling-Rawdon’s suspended police board chair has been moved to Wednesday, September 25. An Ontario Police Civilian Commission hearing looking into whether Greg Oliver acted inappropriately was originally scheduled to wrap up at a Travelodge Hotel conference room last week. However, the final day of arguments was pushed back about three weeks, as lawyers wait for a ruling from Ontario’s Attorney General on whether Oliver’s actions are protected under the Charter of Rights and Freedoms. The Commission is investigating whether Oliver acted inappropriately when discussing a new contract with Stirling-Rawdon Police Chief Brian

some municipalities have recently been audited in respect to compliance with the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act and Brighton is falling behind,” Riel cautioned. “The committee is looking forward to better communication and more co-operation in the future.” “I think we really need to look at what we need for accessibility in this town,” said Councillor Mary Tadman, who sits as council representative on the committee. “We do need to do more,” agreed Mayor Mark Walas. “The onus is on us to fix the problem,” added Councillor Tom Rittwage. “The finger needs to be pointed at council to ensure accessibility.” As well, the advisory committee announced Accessibility Awareness Day, slated for September 20. There are three components to the day. Quinte Sail-Ability participants will be going into the schools to talk to the students about having a disability in the community as well as accessibility. As well, an open house featuring community agencies and businesses will be running from 10:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the King Edward Park Community Centre and an hour-long accessibility challenge will give six members of the community a first-hand look at the day-to-day challenge of living with a disability.
News - Belleville - Several major contracts were among items before Belleville City Council Monday. A key one was a large 600-millimetre feeder water main running from the Bayside treatment plant to the northeast corner of the city. The contract was for $1.8 million, but the total cost of the project, which should commence work next year, will be about $20 million, said city staffer Rod Bovay. “This project is part of our Build Belleville project and is a major one,” he reported. “It serves a need for increased water pressure for the northeast industrial park and has been identified as a needed project for some years.” Council also approved a tender for $81,209 for a new high lift pump for the city’s water treatment plant, and a new 40-passenger bus at a cost of almost $500,000. A request to assist the Quebec community of Lac Megantic following its railroad tragedy drew a donation of $2,000 from a standing fund to provide such donations.

News - Stirling - Stirling’s venerable Legion building is in urgent need of repair. There’s a drainage issue in the basement and work needs to be done to help it meet modern accessibility standards. The drive to improve Royal Canadian Legion Branch 228 resumed Friday, September 6, with a fund-raising golf tournament at Oak Hills Golf Club. While members had hoped for a higher turnout of golfers—there were 19—they were overwhelmed with the community’s support for the first-time event. More than a dozen businesses sponsored the event, helping organizers raise about $1,000. Two car dealers, McKeown Motors and Wells Ford, even put cars up for grabs. If someone had aced the par-three sixth hole at The Glenn golf course, a golfer would have had a choice of one of two cars on display. Branch 228 Membership Chair Donna Graff, an organizer of the tournament, said she was pleased with the outcome. She called it the first of an “annual event.” “If it’s a success this year, it will bring out more golfers next year,” she said, while taking a break around the 14th hole green of The Glenn. The money raised Friday will be added to a pot of about $2,000 already raised from previous fund raisers, including a yard sale in May. Legion members plan to keep fund raising. Another sale is planned for Sunday, September 15, at Branch 228, at 2430 Stirling-Marmora Road, starting at 8 a.m. Graff said Legion Branch 228 will also submit a grant application to the Ontario Trillium Foundation this fall, in hopes of securing more funding. The plan is to raise a large sum of money and begin an extensive renovation, as

Water Buffalo Food fest another success

News - Stirling - Despite a little rain, dozens of people poured into the StirlingRawdon Business Improvement Association’s annual Water Buffalo Food Festival on Saturday, September 7. Meat, cheese and even ice cream made from products from the nearby Ontario Water Buffalo Company
were on display. And while the event clearly celebrates the products that come from the Buffalo farm—a unique business to the region, organizers say— it does not exclude other popular area businesses. More than ten food businesses had products on display throughout the downtown block of Mill Street,
including Rustic Routes, West Wings and Jimmy’s Special Pizza. “I think people come here to get a taste of something different and I think they go home pretty satisfied,” said Mary-Louise Belanger, a BIA member and the festival’s chairperson. She said the festival has taken place for about five years now and this year’s was like all others in that the weather didn’t co-operate. “I think it’s called the Water Buffalo Festival for a reason,” she said, standing over a mid-afternoon cloud that was threatening to rain. However, the rain held off long enough that dozens of people ended up paying the $25 gate fee to taste products on display by the businesses. The event included musical performers and an appearance by Yvette, a 2,000-pound buffalo from the farm. She even allowed children to ride on her back. Belanger said she was happy with the turnout, considering the grey weather. She explained that funds raised from the festival will go back to the BIA operations. It’s an exciting time for the group, because it plans on installing a sound system in the downtown streets to play music at special events. Members will also soon begin preparing for the Santa Claus parade, a big annual event. Belanger said

Sports - Belleville - A new-look Belleville Bulls squad was hammered by the Kingston Frontenacs on Saturday night, giving up 54 shots in a 7 - 2 thumping at the hands of the archrival Frontenacs. The loss gives Belleville a 0 - 3 record during preseason play ahead of their regular season opener on September 20 against the Ottawa 67’s. Missing ﬁve of their top players to NHL camps including captain Brendan Gaunce, stand out forward Alan Quine and fan favourite Jordan Subban, the Bulls managed an even start to the ﬁrst period as both teams began the feeling out process. Bulls rookie Adam Laishram broke the deadlock with a crisp shot from the faceoff circle that eluded Kingston
netminder Matt Mahalak, but the Bulls 1 - 0 lead didn’t last long; 37 seconds later Kingston found themselves with a two-on-one rush after a Bulls giveaway at the Kingston blueline, and a clean pass from Darcy Greenaway found Corey Pawley alone for an easy tally for Kingston to tie the score 1 - 1. Frontenacs forward Slater Doggett scored an unassisted goal of his own before the end of the ﬁrst, and the Bulls went to intermission trailing 2 1. The Bulls showed signs of life in the second period when Michael Cramarossa tipped a shot from the point past the Kingston goalie on the powerplay to knot the score at 2 - 2, but that’s as close as the Bulls could get. The Frontenacs piled on 22 shots in the period

on their way to scoring twice more, and the third period was much of the same. The Frontenacs scored three more times in the ﬁnal period, ending a disappointing night in net for Bulls goalie Braydon Banitsiotis, who faced 54 shots for the Bulls.
Next up for the Bulls was another pre-season matchup on Wednesday, September 11, against Ottawa in Smiths Falls. The Bulls open the season September 20 and play their home opener on September 21 when they host the North Bay Battalion.

city the league has dealt with this year, something Morrell chalked up to the outstanding and friendly staff of the Belleville Recreation, Culture and Community department. “They’re the best staff we’ve dealt with in the province,” Morrell said. “They get it.” Teams participating in the tournament qualiﬁed for the provincial competition over the 2013 season, and competed for a chance to qualify for nationals taking place from October 12 to 14 in Hamilton. The league features both men’s and women’s teams from across the province, although Morrell said he was unaware if any local teams were taking part. He added that if anyone was interested in starting a touch football league in Belleville to contact the league through their web site, <www.tfont. com>.

Prairie Day celebrates “amazing restoration site” By Bill Freeman
News - Alderville First Nation - Prairie Day at the Alderville First Nation’s Black Oak Savanna is both a celebration and an opportunity to teach visitors about the extraordinary and unique restoration project that’s striving diligently to returning native species to the land. “Tallgrass prairies are more endangered than rain forests and yet it’s right here in our back yard,” says Janine McLeod, nature educator and outreach co-ordinator for the Alderville Black Oak SavannaTallgrass Prairie. McLeod helped co-ordinate Prairie Day and its program of events that included entertainment, storytelling, nature workshops, crafts and guided tours along trails that wend their way through the burgeoning savanna. The day was sponsored by Alderville First Nation and the Nature Conservancy of Canada and brought together partners that have been instrumental in abetting the restoration project’s remarkable success. “It’s nice to do something that brings people out here to this amazing site to have a look at what we’re doing,” McLeod says. “It’s not something people even know exists in North America.” It’s one of the rarest ecological habitats in North America and the project, started in 2002, provides a glimpse of what the 100,000-acre Rice Lake Plains looked like centuries ago. The 50-hectare site is the largest remnant tallgrass prairie in central Ontario and home to rare plants, grasses and threatened and endangered birds and insects. “Everything is connected to nature somehow and connected to this site,” McLeod said as she looked around at the various display tents.
“We’re celebrating by bringing together all the various partners who are involved in things like this throughout the year.” That included the Nature Conservancy, Ontario Parks, the Ganaraska Region Conservation Authority and the Lower Trent Conservation Authority. First Nations storytellers Aaron Bell and Melody Crowe performed along with award winning musician Ken Whiteley and the Paddling Puppeteers. The restoration project receives funding from the federal government’s Aboriginal Fund for Species at Risk and the Ontario government’s Species at Risk fund. McLeod says recent funding has allowed them to plant seeds into plugs which has “knocked five years off the restoration” goal. “It’s nice to be able to escalate it like that.” “Walking through this site is very special; there is almost something spiritual about the site,” McLeod says. “Walking through here you instantly feel your blood pressure and heart rate drop and you just start focusing on the other and bigger picture and forget all your little worries. “We learn something new every single time we walk through here. I’ve been working here seven years and every time I walk through something new will reveal itself.” Too many people, she says, have “lost that connection to nature. “They don’t see trees, they don’t get out and feel the wind on their face and sun on their body, even the rain spitting into your face; it’s a wonderful rejuvenating feeling. It helps eyesight, to be able to look far and be able to focus near, far and very far.” Please turn to page B2 for more photos

News - Castleton - â€œReal soap cannot be made without lye.â€? But itâ€™s not the same soap many might remember their grandmothers making, which tended to have too much lye and irritated the skin, says Nancy Gagne, who has been making soap for the past 15 years at her farmhouse studio north of Castleton. Originally a veterinary technician, Gagne became interested in natural products after starting a family. She developed a particular interest in handmade soaps because one of her three sons â€œhad a lot of environmental allergiesâ€? and she didnâ€™t want to expose her children to â€œtoxinsâ€? such as petroleum products and synthetic fragrances and colours that are found in mass-produced cleansers. â€œIt actually became a creative passion and an outlet I initially didnâ€™t anticipate,â€? said Gagne, whose Northumberland Soap works on County Road 25 was one of 34 sites that were part of the 18th annual Northumberland Hills Studio Tour last weekend. â€œI played around with a lot of recipes to come up with what I was really happy with,â€? she said. She produces close to 50 varieties, using a blend of olive, coconut, palm and castor oils, along with moisturizing ingredients such as shea butter, cocoa butter and oatmeal. Gagne employs the old-fashioned cold process method to make her soap, in a pot on a stove in her kitchen. Mixing fat or oils with lye causes a chemical reaction, saponification,
which is great for laundry soap, not so much for washing your skin.â€? Gagne makes a variety of scented soaps, lavender being the most popular, as well as a few that are unscented, made from beeswax and honey, calendula, goatâ€™s milk and shea butter, and oats and wheat germ. Some are made for their â€œhealing properties ... based on old herbal principles,â€? but she also makes â€œa lot that are just for fun,â€? she said. The handmade natural bars, which weigh about 95 grams, are high in glycerin, which â€œdraws moisture from the air to your skin â€Ś whereas commercial soap usually has the glycerin removed because itâ€™s a valuable byproductâ€? that can be sold for other uses, Gagne said. â€œMost people right away will come to me and say that since they switched from a commercial body bar to natural soap, they stopped being itchy [and] their skin feels so much better.â€? Many of her ingredients she grows herself, such as calendula and lavender, or purchases from local sources. Gagne sells her pure, handmade soaps at the Cobourg Farmersâ€™ Market Saturday mornings and at her farmgate shop from May to December (but you must call ahead to ensure someone will be there to provide service). The number is 877Nancy Gagneâ€™s Northumberland Soapworks north of Castleton, was one of 577-8274.

she couldn’t ask for a better event. “It’s wonderful,” she said, underneath the beautiful fall afternoon sky. “It’s great for the kids. We like the tow truck and we like the train.”

Organizers of the annual event at the well-known Stirling museum hoped for this kind of response. Farmtown Park, previously known as the Hastings County Museum of Agricultural Heritage, has held Grandparents Day celebrations for about ﬁve years. The event allows children to learn about the history of agriculture with help from an older generation. “It’s a family day,” said Farmtown Park volunteer Harry Danford, a key organizer for Sunday’s event. “It’s not a fund raiser, it’s just a day to be with the whole family and hopefully there’s something here that interests everyone.” The day included a handmade apple cider demonstration, a performance
from the Stirling Citizens Band and an opportunity to explore the museum’s exhibits, including its 1950s-style replica village. Dozens also ﬂocked to the park’s steam engine room at 2 p.m. to watch volunteers light its famous 80-year-old Fairbanks-Morse diesel engine. Danford said he was pleased to see a good crowd in attendance, including several grandparents who could help their grandchildren understand the artefacts on display. “They may see something from the past,” he said, explaining that many of vehicles, engines and other displays are from the 1940s and 50s. “It represents what this county and been through over the decades.”

Kidney walk surpasses fund-raising goal By Steve Jessel
News - Belleville - Organizers of the 2013 Belleville kidney walk are calling the event a success after surpassing their fund-raising goal, but with the 50th anniversary of the Kidney Foundation of Canada coming up next year, participants can be assured that 2014 will be even bigger. â€œWe have big plans for next year,â€? said Ann Labrash, development assistant with the Kingston chapter of the Kidney Foundation. â€œDeďŹ nitely make this bigger and better.â€? Roughly 30 walkers and their families gathered at Zwicks Park in Belleville on Sunday morning, a positive turnout for an event that Labrash said has struggled with attendance in the past. In fact, the event was cancelled in 2012 owing to a lack of interest after running the previous two years, but Labrash said sheâ€™s hopeful the walk can someday reach the proďŹ le of the Kingston kidney walk, which has already raised $10,000 ahead of their annual outing later this month. â€œThis year has been phenomenal for really starting up again,â€? Labrash said. â€œMost of these people out here are dialysis patients and their families â€Ś some can walk 50 steps and some of them can walk 50 kilometres.â€? The goal of the Kidney Foundation, and in turn of the walk was to help eradicate and prevent kidney disease of all kinds. Labrash said today one in ten people are in danger of developing kidney disease, a rate that has more than tripled over the last 20 years. The major risk factors associated with kidney disease are nutrition, lifestyle and exercise, meaning a walk ďŹ ts in
very nicely with promoting healthy participants. Labrash added that the walk is also meant to replace an annual foundation March door-todoor canvassing effort, as canvassing has been in decline for a number for years. â€œDoor-to-door canvassing is dying out, people donâ€™t want to give at the door,â€? Labrash said. â€œSo the consensus was to start the walks and gradually build them up to replace the March campaign.â€? Belleville doesnâ€™t have its own branch of the Kidney Foundation; the event is run by the Kingston chapter, which is responsible for the area from Picton to Perth. Some 40 chapters of the Kidney Foundation run walks each year, all contributing toward an $850,000 provincial goal. The Belleville event raised $3,044 this year, surpassing their $3,000 goal, funds that will be used to help pay for research and patient services. â€œThese events are extremely important, not only to raise money but to get the word about kidney disease out,â€? Labrash said. â€œTo me raising awareness is at least on par with raising money â€Ś each person thatâ€™s on dialysis costs the province $60,000 a year. Multiply that by 90 in Belleville alone, and the costs are Some 30 walkers attended the annual kidney walk at Zwicks Park in Belleville Sunday morning, raising over $3,000.

Township looks for recognition award nominations By Bill Freeman
News - Havelock - Itâ€™s that time of year again and the Township of Havelock-Belmont-Methuen is looking for nominees for its annual community recognition awards. Township council has approved a request to advertise for nominees. The deadline for nominations has been set at October 31. A special meeting of coun-
cil will be called to review the submissions. The award ceremony is tentatively scheduled for November 28 at the Lions Community Hall. â€œI think it went well last year,â€? Deputy-clerk/Economic Development OfďŹ cer Brian Grattan told council. Last year was the ďŹ rst time the municipality hosted a stand-alone evening
for award recipients; previously the prestigious awards were presented as part of a regular council meeting. The November 28 gathering will be deemed a special meeting of council but will be held exclusively to celebrate the recipients and their contributions to the municipality. Mayor Ron Gerow expressed the feelings of council when he said they didnâ€™t
â€œhave to take away from the agendaâ€? of a regular meeting to present the awards. It was a night to highlight the good things individuals and groups do for and in Havelock-Belmont-Methuen, he said. More information on the nomination process will be available through the municipal ofďŹ ce as well as the townshipâ€™s web site.

Youth need outlets to explore learning beyond the classroom. Most youth appreciate a hands-on approach and 4-H fully supports this learning style. Our motto: â€œLearn to do by Doingâ€? approach is about exploring, making mistakes and learning through physically trying. Are you interested in becoming a member or leader? Please contact Megan Burnside at Region3@4hontario.ca or check out the website of 4-H Ontario.
