Belleville has franchised medical marijuana clinic, but no pot on site BY TERRY MCNAMEE

Belleville — People looking for relief from chronic pain, tremors, seizures and many other conditions have a new option for treating their symptoms: medical marijuana. The Bodystream Medical Services clinic in Belleville allows people to learn about the potential benefits of the drug, and those approved for its use can obtain medical prescriptions for it. However, the clinic does not have marijuana onsite, nor does it provide it, because only growers approved by Health Canada are permitted to fill the prescriptions, said Belleville Clinic Supervisor Emma Haskins. The Belleville clinic is one of several Bodystream clinics located across Canada. “This location opened up in January of 2016, so we’re still fairly new, but we’re rapidly growing,” Haskins said. “We see anywhere from 70 to 100 new patients each month. We have a lot of interest. Word of mouth plays a big role.” She said the drug can help with many diseases, including pain, anxiety, sleep disorders, eating disorders and fibromyalgia. It also is used to treat

cancer directly.” Haskins said people are concerned about having to smoke the drug, and about getting high. Both can be avoided, she said. The drug is available as an oil, or in dried form for use in a vaporizer. “The oil is a very popular treatment plan,” she said. “The oil can be dropped under the patient’s tongue or added to food or drink such as tea. There’s a little bit of a taste, but it’s not overpowering.” The oil also gives a person relief for six to eight hours. As for avoiding the high, she said medical marijuana growers have many different strains available, many of which have very little THC, the ingredient that creates the psychoactive effect. People can choose a variety that they can take during the day and remain alert, or obtain one that can be taken at bedtime to help them sleep.

ment for a consultation with a general practitioner via a video conference call at Bodystream. Several of the doctors the clinic uses are in Belleville, and all are well educated in the use of medical marijuana. If the patient is given a prescription, the clinic then puts the person in touch with a licenced marijuana grower. The patient places the order over the phone or on-line and it is shipped directly to the patient. Most of the patients who come to Bodystream for help are adults between the ages of 40 and 90 who suffer from chronic pain, but those coming in for other conditions such as anxiety or epilepsy may be almost any age, she said. Haskins said patients are reassessed every three months to see if the treatment is effective for them. “We have a lot of patients that have a lot of success with it,” she said, and predicted that the demand will grow as more people realize the effectiveness of medical marijuana.

BY STEPHEN PETRICK

Belleville – Belleville Mayor Taso Christopher dropped a $20 bill into a kettle at the Thrift store inside the Salvation Army’s Community and Family Services building on Wednesday, Nov. 15. And with that, the Salvation Army’s Kettle Campaign got underway. Between now and Christmas, kettles will be located at several big Belleville businesses to encourage cash donations to help those in need. In the past, kettle kick-off events have taken place at a participating business. But this year it was held inside the Thrift store at the 295 Pinnacle St. building because it’s new and “because this is the heart of what the kettle campaign funds,” said Abby Mills, the Salvation Army’s Community and Family Services director. Funds raised through the kettle campaign help the Salvation Army deliver several services out of the Pinnacle Street building; most notably its meal programs. Each year thousands of meals are provided free of charge to any person who’s in need. About 30,000 meals have been provided over the past year, the organization says. And with the 2016-2017 season for The Warm Room program now underway, that number is about to increase signifi-

cantly. The Warm Room provides a warm meal and a refuge from the cold every evening from November 15 to March 15, weekends and holidays included.

The Salvation Army says funds from the campaign stay in the community to provide vital services to the less fortunate in Belleville. The Salvation Army’s Emergency Food Bank also provides families with food regularly. It’s been accessed more than 3,500 times so far this year, and 10 per cent of food bank clients each month are accessing services for the first time. The Salvation Army also runs a popular Coats for Folks program. Each Thursday in November, gently used winter coats are provided free of charge to those in need. (The final distribution day is Thursday, November 24.) The program is offered at The Salvation Army Community Church, located at 290 Bridge St., W. in Belleville. Continued on page 3

Council sends budget message to agencies – keep increase near zero BY STEPHEN PETRICK

Belleville -- City council is getting serious about keeping its tax rate low. Council passed a motion Monday that essentially sets a target for it operating budget. That target is to have an increase that impacts the tax base by no more than one per cent. The motion was presented

by Coun. Paul Carr towards the end of the Monday, Nov 28 building at the Build Belleville headquarters. Carr’s motion was intended to send a message to external agencies, such as Quinte Conservation, which go to the city annually at budget time for approval of municipal levies. “We need to build a budget framework that is clear,” Carr

said. The motion passed unanimously and several councillors spoke in favour of it. Coun. Jackie Denyes said in past years mayors have spoken about the need to talk to external agencies about bringing budget requests to the city with zero or close to zero increases. This motion, Denyes said, formalizes that request.

Christmas kettle campaign aims for $160,000 Continued from page 2 Also, each summer, more than 30 local children spend a week at Salvation Army Summer Adventure Camps. All of these programs benefit from kettle campaign donations. The Salvation Army says funds from the campaign stay in the community to provide vital services to the less fortunate in Belleville. The 2015 Christmas Kettle Campaign raised $156,000 to help those in need. The goal for this year is to raise $160,000. Kettles will be located at the following busi-

2015.” The Ontario Medal for Police Bravery was created in 1975 and is awarded and presented annually by the Lieutenant Governor of Ontario to honour police officers who have gone above and beyond to protect and serve their community and whose actions demonstrate outstanding courage. From Joly’s citation: “Constable Dan Joly was patrolling in a marked cruiser on the afternoon of September 25, 2015, when he was flagged down by a citizen and directed to a house fire in a residential area. Joly learned that a resident in one of the units was still inside and refusing to come out. The fire department had not yet been called and Constable Joly ran into the building, located the woman, and directed her to safety. He then noticed a female resident of another unit on a landing at the side of the building with her two young children. He ran up the stairwell, grabbed one of the children, and carried him to safety. He then realized the woman had gone back into her apartment to get the family dog. He once again ran up the stairwell and led the woman and her child and dog to safety, the frightened animal biting him on the wrist during the process. According to the Belleville Fire Department, the fire would have been well advanced when Joly entered the building and

the environment within the structure would have been extremely dangerous with thick black smoke billowing out of the doorway and windows. They further stated that there would have been a low likelihood of survival, even with very short exposure times. “Constable Joly’s quick action and calmness under pressure led to a safe ending for all.” McGee’s heroics were outlined as: “On August 7, 2015, at approximately 7:50 p.m., Constable Corey McGee and his partner were dispatched to the home of a suicidal man. The house was empty by the time the officers arrived. They learned from the communications centre that (the subject) had been spotted on a nearby railway line. “PC McGee saw the man standing on the tracks with a freight train coming in his direction. The constable immediately left his police car and began jogging toward the man without calling for backup, knowing that he had little time before the engine would strike the male. McGee was initially relieved to see the man step off the track to the side. When he tried to escort him off the track bed, however, he stiffened and refused to leave. With the freight train barreling down on them, McGee estimated that they had two to three

Police vehicles going bigger, darker, brighter BY JACK EVANS

Belleville - With Deputy-chief Ron Gignac set to take over as chief early in the new year, some major change has already been signalled, a town hall meeting was told in the Parkdale Community Centre Monday evening. Close to 15 citizens showed up for a presentation of major changes to the police department’s fleet of vehicles, which will mark a change from white to black with colourful luminescent flashes of red, blue, a stylized maple leaf and large, white, bold “police” letters, plus increased lighting effects and a trend toward SUVs for front line patrol purposes. Gignac explained that some years ago when he took over as chief at Deep River, Ontario, he sensed that the public was not aware of a police presence as the white colour blended in with snow and inclement weather and a myriad of other white or silver vehicles. He did a study at that time on the impact of darker coloured police vehicles to raise awareness both among citizens and “thugs” plus improved safety for officers. That study has attracted much positive attention, so shortly after coming to Belleville, he initiated a committee to study the idea for this city. The design is not yet cast in stone, but the concept has been established, approved unanimously by the Police Services

Board and also endorsed by those at the meeting Monday. The improved road worthiness and protective safety, plus comfort in getting in and out of a vehicle were all factors, compared with budget priced sedans. Also, the SUVs get longer life use, less repairs and a higher resale value, offsetting any small additional costs involved. It was even expected that eventually, a lower insurance rate could kick in. Visibility itself is a key safety factor, said Gignac. “When you are pulling out from behind a snowbank, the black colour is far more visible.” The committee comprised experienced traffic officers, several with experience in fleet management in both civilian and military forces, the city police department’s own fleet manager (Tom O’Leary) and more. The highlyreflective decals will be by Three M and were tested with competitors ahead of time. Does the red and black colour have anything to do with the Ottawa Redblacks? One person asked. “Now there’s a real winning team,” replied Gignac. It was also revealed that Insp. Mike Callaghan also spent some years with the Ottawa police force and had occasion to realize that light coloured vehicles were a handicap there, and yes, Gignac is an Ottawa football fan. Finally, with the new and colourful

dents. There are no significant costs as the change will be phased in over four years with normal police vehicle purchases.

Seeds to Sprouts, a rebirth of space for children BY STEPHEN PETRICK

Thurlow – A red-brick building at 248 Elmwood Dr. wasn’t always pretty on the inside. Built in the 1950s, it was once known as D.R. Atkins School and in the 90s it was re-purposed to serve the small congregation of Quinte Harvest Church. But a year ago, it was a vacant building up for sale and in desperate need of work. Now, however, it’s the home of a budding childcare centre named Seeds to Sprouts. Angie Bone, an experience early childcare educator from Shannonville, bought the building in January and spruced it up with help from her family. The business is now serving about a dozen families from its location in Belleville’s rural east end and within another year or so she expects it Angie Bone and her mother Merriam Fanjoy run the business Seeds for Sprouts at 248 to be in full bloom. It could eventually have a Elmwood Drive, in Belleville’s rural east area. Stephen Petrick/Metroland capacity to serve 85 children, she said. But, for now, she’s enjoying building the busi“We try to treat all children as if they are loved. We don’t see this as a job, so much as an ness slowly and ensuring the centre builds a family,” said Bone, a mother of three young extended family.” strong connection with all of its families. Bone’s daughter Brianna, now 9, came up kids herself. “We feel they need to nurtured and with the name Seeds to Sprouts, a fitting title since it reflects the centre’s mission to nurture children and see them grow. Bone’s son Tyler, now 7, designed the image used for the front sign. Her youngest, five-year-old Anthony, also enjoys being involved in the centre. Bone runs the business with help from her mother, Merrian Fanjoy. The two are proud of the work they put in to re-purpose the building and, as evident by the smiles on their faces, truly love being around and talking about children. Walls inside the building were painted for the new centre and facilities inside had to be updated. Fences were also installed along the north end of the building, to create different yards for different age groups. The building has four play rooms with lots of fun toys. There’s an infant room (for newborns to 18 months), a toddler room (for kids 18 to 30

months), a pre-school room (for kids 30 months to six years) and a primary/junior room (for kids aged 7 to 12). The centre currently operates from 6:45 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. weekdays, but Bone hopes to grow the business even more over time and has visions of offering special evening or weekend programs, such as father-kid playgroups or cooking classes. Bone has worked in early childhood education for 12 years in just about every capacity. Early in her career, she worked out of the Trenton Military Family Resource Centre. When she started her own family, she began operating a home-based day care. Through all of her experiences she’s learned that it’s important for parents to have an engaging and safe environment to bring their children while they’re at work – yet it’s often hard to find the right spot. Many day care places have long waiting lists, especially for the youngest age bracket where available spaces are filled exceptionally quick. (Ontario guidelines dictate that there must be at least one adult for three infants at a day care centre). Bone and Fanjoy hope their business will ease that demand – and they’re happy to do the work. They’re both passionate about early childhood learning and stress they’re big believers in child-directed learning. “Be messy,” is something Bone isn’t afraid to tell a child. “We can clean up the mess.” Her point is that it’s important for children to pick up toys, dabble in paint and do all the things that are good for their development. “Kids only have about 12 years before they don’t want to play with these types of things anymore.” For more information: www.seedstosprouts. ca.

OPINION

After Aleppo: A Kind of Peace? Eastern Aleppo, the rebel-held half of what was once Syria’s biggest city, is falling. Once the resistance there collapses, things may move very fast in Syria, and the biggest question will be: Gwynne Dyer do the outside powers that have intervened in the war accept Bashar al-Assad’s victory, or do they keep the war going? Even one year ago, it seemed completely unrealistic to talk about an Assad victory. The Syrian government’s army was decimated, demoralised and on the verge of collapse: every time the rebels attacked, it retreated. There was even a serious possibility that Islamic State and the Nusra Front, the extreme Islamist groups that dominated the rebel forces, would sweep to victory in all of Syria. But then, just fourteen months ago, the Russian air force was sent in to save Assad’s army from defeat. It did more than that. It enabled the Syrian army, with help on the ground from Shia militias recruited from Lebanon, Afghanistan and Iraq and mostly trained and commanded by Iranian officers, to go onto the offensive. Assad’s forces took back the historic city of Palmyra. They eliminated the last rebel-held foothold in the city of Homs. And last summer they began to cut eastern Aleppo’s remaining links with the outside world. A rebel counter-offensive in August briefly opened a new corridor into eastern Aleppo, but government troops retook the lost territory and resumed the siege in September. For almost two months now almost nothing has moved into or out of the besieged half of the city, and both food and ammunition are running short inside. So the resistance is starting to collapse. The Hanano district fell on Saturday, and Jabal Badro fell on Sunday. The capture of Sakhour on Monday has cut the rebel-held part of Aleppo in two, and the remaining bits north of the cut will quickly be pinched out by the Syrian government’s troops. The southeastern part of the city may stay in rebel hands a while longer, but military collapses of this sort are infectious. It is now likely that Bashar al-Assad will control all of Aleppo before the end of the year, and possibly much sooner.

At that point he would control all of Syria’s major cities, at least three-quarters of the population that has not fled abroad, and all of the country’s surviving industry. He would be in a position to offer an amnesty to all the rebels except the extreme Islamists of Islamic State and the Nusra Front, and a lot of the less fanatical Syrian rebels would be tempted to accept it. For the many foreign powers that are involved in the Syrian civil war, it would then come down to a straight choice: Assad’s cruel but conventional regime or the Islamist crazies. Even Turkey and Saudi Arabia, however much their leaders may loathe Assad, could not openly put their armies at the service of the Islamists. (They used to send them arms and money, but even that has stopped now.) And for a newly installed President Donald Trump, it would become a lot simpler to “make a deal” with Russia’s President Vladimir Putin to finish the job of crushing Islamic State and the Nusra Front together. Would the Russians and the Americans then hand over all the recaptured territory to Assad’s regime? Many people in Washington would rather hang onto it temporarily in order to blackmail Syria’s ruling Baath Party into replacing Assad with somebody a bit less tainted, but a deal between Putin and Trump would certainly preclude that sort of games-playing. How could Trump reconcile such a deal with Russia with his declared intention to cancel the agreement the United States signed last March to curb Iran’s nuclear weapons ambitions? Iran is Russia’s closest ally in the Middle East, and if Trump broke that agreement he would be reopening a US military confrontation with Iran. Since this question may not even have crossed Mr Trump’s mind yet, it would be pointless for us to speculate on which way he might jump three months from now. It’s equally pointless to wonder what kind of deal the Syrian Kurds will end up with. Turkey will want to ensure that they have no autonomous government of their own and are thoroughly subjugated by Assad’s regime. The United States, on the other hand, owes them a debt of honour for carrying the main burden of fighting Islamic State on the ground – but the Kurds are used to being betrayed. All we can say with some confidence at the moment is that it looks like Assad has won his six-year war to stay in power.

Déjà vu for Tories in choosing Kramp Editorial by Chris Malette Conservatives in the central and northern reaches of Hastings County have decided to ride a familiar war horse into battle against the Wynne Liberals in the next provincial election and few should be surprised. Daryl Kramp secured his party’s nomination as the candidate for the newly-minted HastingsLennox and Addington riding. And the announcement was quickly followed by a congratulatory message from a fellow former federal Tory by the name of Patrick Brown. “I had the great honour of working alongside Daryl in Ottawa, and saw first-hand his hardwork and dedication to his constituents,” said provincial PC party leader Brown in a release Saturday evening. “Daryl will be a very strong communicator for the Ontario PC Party’s message of change for a better Ontario with the voters in Hastings-Lennox and Addington. I am very excited to have his experience on our team.” To get the candidacy nod, Kramp wasn’t given a cakewalk, as many may have expected, owing to his longevity as a federal MP and his vast campaign experience among fellow Conservatives in the riding. To get the win, he needed to best Bancroft city councilor Tracy McGibbon and John O’Donnell, the former chief of Hastings-Quinte Paramedic Services. Both are untested in the political arena at the federal or provincial level but either would have been able candidates in Kramp’s stead. There was reported broad support in the Bancroft area for McGibbon and O’Donnell is a personable, whipsmart newcomer to politics in these parts. Kramp, a former OPP officer, international hockey promoter and restaurant owner who, a decade ago, accepted a sizeable settlement from the McGuinty provincial government to shutter and demolish his Moira Lake-side Two Loons restaurant to make way for a diversion and straightening of Highway 62 – work that was never carried out for a variety of land-use reasons, according to transportation ministry officials. He’s not the only Tory veteran who has so far decided to try his hand at provincial politics, utilizing a campaign machinery team that boosted him to Ottawa on three occasions. Kramp joins former colleague Paul Calandra on the Ontario Progressive Conservative ticket. Calandra, parliamentary secretary to former prime minister Stephen Harper, won the party’s nomination for Markham-Stouffville. Former Finance Minister Joe Oliver and exConservative MPs Bob Dechert and Susan Truppe also have announced their intentions to seek nominations to run for the Ontario PCs in 2018.

Kramp, at 69, is a politician who’s bucking a trend among those entering the political arena. While many argue “60 is the new 40” in terms of older, white male politicians entering politics, there are few of Kramp’s vintage in the field of former federal Tories taking a run at Queen’s Park. Pushing 70, Kramp is certainly not letting age stop him, despite claims after he lost to Bossio that he was looking forward to easing into a quieter lifestyle to enjoy his grandchildren and family life. Consider, too, Kramp will run in the next election with a Tory slate that includes 19-year-old home-schooled teen Sam Oosterhoff, a political-science major at Brock University, who stormed to victory in a by-election in Niagara West-Glanbrook. Strange bedfellows, indeed. Kramp will turn 70 next year and will be 71 when the actual election is held in 2018. If he is elected and serves the whole term, Kramp will be 75 when completing that term. Will it then be time to hand off the baton to other members of the Kramp family with political aspirations, hoping to capitalize on the familiar name in the northern and central reaches of Hastings County? Perhaps. Or, perhaps, the energetic septuagenarian will run on, like a 6’5” Energizer Bunny. But, we doubt that will be the case. This looks to be the last true kick at the can for this former softball pitcher once feared for his fierce determination on the mound, but now given to humblepie bromides when asked how he feels about getting a nomination or being an elected official. Kramp lost two federal election bids before his first victory in 2004. In the 1997 election, he ran as a Progressive Conservative in the riding of Hastings—Frontenac—Lennox and Addington, finishing second against Liberal Larry McCormick. He ran in the same riding for the 2000 election, and this time finished third against McCormick and Canadian Alliance candidate Sean McAdam. In the 2004 election, Kramp ran as a Conservative in Prince Edward—Hastings, and narrowly defeated Liberal Bruce Knutson. The seat was previously held by Liberal cabinet minister Lyle Vanclief, who was not seeking re-election. He was re-elected in 2006 by a much larger margin. Kramp Saturday told Starboard Communications’ inQuinte, “You have to earn that support and that respect by demonstrating that you have the capacity, the capability, the energy and quite frankly that you’re doing it for the right reason.” So it is congratulations, then, for Kramp and also here’s hoping that he has indeed entered the race “for the right reason.”

Home Weatherization Program helps local family stay warm When Hamilton resident Paul found out that he could insulate his home free of charge through the Union Gas Home Weatherization Program, he didn’t hesitate. “The house gets really hot in the summer and really cold in the winter, so I hoped it would help my heating bill in the long run,” he explained. Taking advantage of the program, which he learned about through a Union Gas community service partner, was a painless process for the homeowner. After meeting the Home Weatherization Program’s eligibility criteria, he was put in touch with Ecofitt, an authorized Union Gas contractor “They got the ball rolling,” said Paul. An energy assessment of his house was scheduled, and a certified energy adviser confirmed that the attic, exterior walls and basement of his home were under-insulated. Within days, the Ecofitt team arrived to insulate the home. From start to clean-up, the work was completed in a single day. There was no charge for any part of the program – energy assessment, labour or materials. And the difference in home comfort was felt almost immediately. For Paul, living on a tight budget in an older home, the no-cost improvements were more than welcome, and he has already recommended the program to a friend. “I couldn’t believe this program. I am going to be more comfortable but I am also going to save money, so it’s kind of a double offer.” To find out more about the Union Gas Home Weatherization Program go to uniongas.com/weatherization. 10 Belleville News - Thursday, December 1, 2016

Thurlow neighbour saves two from devastating house fire BY MELYSSA GLOUDE

Thurlow - Were it not for the quickthinking actions of a neighbour, two Thurlow residents may not have survived a fully involved house fire earlier this week. Fire Commander Cliff Christopher of Belleville Station #4 was on-call the night of the blaze, which took place on the corner of Blessington Road and Forsythe Road. “We received the call at approximately 2:30 a.m. Wednesday morning and when we arrived we began doing our search for any victims or anybody that may have been trapped in the building,” says Christopher. “At that time, we couldn’t find anybody. So we proceeded to start extinguishing the fire.” It was then that Christopher says a neighbour approached him. “I was approached by a gentleman that I had recognized from a previous call and he had informed me that he had extricated the people from the house and taken them to his property to call an ambulance.” Enter Mike Brennan, a Corrections Officer and neighbour, the man

responsible for saving the lives of the homeowners. Christopher says that Brennan explained the rescue to emergency personnel after the ordeal. “When Brennan arrived on scene, he was in the middle of putting wood on his fire,” said Christopher. “He said that he noticed a glow from across the road which he thought was Christmas lights and when he took a closer look he realized it was fire.” Christopher says that it was Brennan’s quick-thinking that saved the lives of the residents. “Brennan quickly reacted and found the one female resident on the ground, on her hands and knees behind the house, and the gentlemen slumped over the windowsill halfway out the window.” Though, says Christopher, this was not Brennan’s first rescue stint. “He had pulled a gentleman out of a group home fire in Wellington over 20 years ago,” he says. “He’s clearly a good neighbour and I fully believe that if he hadn’t been at the right place at the right time, certainly the outcome of the incident would have been a lot different.”

Snow falls on the remains of the home that caught fire earlier this week in Thurlow. Thanks to the daring rescue efforts of a neighbour, Mike Brennan, the resident couple were extradited and are expected to make a full recovery. Melyssa Gloude / Metroland

ONTARIO GOVERNMENT NOTICE NOTICE OF STUDY STEP-DOWN FROM A GROUP ‘B’ TO GROUP ‘C’ PROJECT Highway 401 and Shannonville Road WP 4082-10-01 Highway 401 and Highway 49 (Marysville Road) WP 4027-14-01 Interchanges 556 and 566 Commuter Parking Lot Expansion Preliminary and Detail Design Study WSP Canada Inc. in partnership with the Ministry of Transportation (MTO) are carrying out the Preliminary and Detail Design Study/Environmental Assessment for the expansion of the commuter parking lots on Shannonville Road and on Highway 49 (Marysville Road), Township of Tyendinaga, County of Hastings. The objectives of this study were to develop a Preliminary and Detail Design to expand the commuter parking lot that provides long term improvements to meet local demand. The Recommended Plan for the Interchange 556 Commuter Parking Lot on Shannonville Road, includes expanding the parking area to the south and the north, providing a total of forty (40) parking spaces, including three (3) accessible parking spots and one (1) van accommodation. The entrance will be directly across from the Highway 401 westbound on-ramp. The Recommended Plan for Interchange 566 Commuter Parking Lot, on Highway 49 (Marysville Road), expands the parking area to the north, and provides a total of forty-one (41) proposed spaces, including three (3) accessible parking spots and one (1) van accommodation. The existing northerly entrance will be retained and up-graded to provide access. THE PROCESS The study has followed the approved planning process for a Group ‘B’ project under the Class Environmental Assessment for Provincial Transportation Facilities (2000). The process included agency consultation, an evaluation of alternative solutions and the selection of a preferred solution taking into account public and agency input. During the course of the study it was determined that the Recommended Plan is not anticipated to result in significant adverse environmental or community effects. With this in mind, there are provisions under the Class EA process to review and re-assess the project classification to verify if it remains appropriate. Based on this review, the project is recommended to be stepped down to a Group ‘C’ project and not eligible for a Part II Order request (“bump-up”). As a Group ‘C’ project, an Environmental Screening Document (ESD) documenting the effects anticipated by the project and the corresponding mitigation measures will be prepared for MTO internal use. A map of the Study Area is shown below. This notification marks the beginning of the 30-day review period in which potentially affected parties may request MTO to reconsider the decision to step the study down to a Group ‘C’ project. Requests should initially be sent to MTO and WSP (see contact information below) within the 30-day review period (ending on January 6, 2017). If the parties cannot agree, the objector has the right to request the Minister of the Environment and Climate Change (in writing to: Ferguson Block, 11th Floor, 77 Wellesley Street West, Toronto, Ontario, M7A 2T5), to rule on the request. It is the responsibility of the objector to forward the request to the Minister of the Environment and Climate Change before the end of the 30-day review period. If there are no outstanding key plan concerns at the end of the 30-day review period (ending on January 6, 2017) the study will proceed as a Group ‘C’ project under the MTO Class EA for Provincial Transportation Facilities (2000).

Get ready for a new era in cancer fight says BGH’s Dr. K. BY STEPHEN PETRICK

Belleville – A new era in the fight against cancer is upon us and Belleville General Hospital is ready to take part. That was the message of an inspirational – and at times tear-inducing – presentation by Dr. Janarthanan Kankesan at the hospital in a recent presentation. Kankesan – known as Dr. K to many patients and colleagues – is one of two oncologists who work in BGH’s cancer clinic. His speech was delivered to a roomful of guests, as part of the Belleville General Hospital Foundation’s Cutting Edge lunch and learn speaker series. The series allows the health care community to learn about new developments at the hospital and encourages donations. “We’re coming into a new era of new therapies,” for cancer, Kankesan said. “Yes, people are still dying, but they’re living longer.” The crux of the speech was that cancer today is being treated much differently now in than in years past. In some cases, people are living longer because of new advancements in medications. These medications are incredibly expensive and sometimes only delay death, but it’s still encouraging progress, he said, since it’s impossible to put a price on a person’s life. He brought the audience to tears when he shared the story of a cancer patient who accessed a medication that cost several thousand dollars a month to extend his life, so he could spend time with his 10-year-old son. He also told the story of a woman who had been diagnosed with an aggressive form of cancer and was trying to access a $60,000 a month drug. He recalled the patient’s daughter saying, “I’m getting married in April. Is my mom going to be around for that?” These stories represent the heartbreaking nature of the health care industry, he said, but the good news is

that therapies to treat cancer are becoming more effective as time goes by. And the health care industry – with help from donors – seems more determined than ever before to fight cancer. Before Dr. Kankesan was hired by Quinte Health Care two years ago, Dr. Roger Levesque was the only oncologist at the hospital. With two specialists, the oncology department has increased its capacity by about 25

per cent, Kankesan said, and there’s been thought about expansion – taking into mind that many patients can’t travel to Kingston or Toronto for the expanded cancer services typical of big city hospitals. “We’re going to see if we can expand our cancer clinic to three or four physicians,” he said. “The opportunity to grow is certainly there.” The most hopeful news Kankesan shared was that cancer health care is,

in some cases, moving away from chemotherapy to drugs that target specific cells of the body and therefore have fewer side effects. He said there’s been huge advancements in liver surgery, meaning now when a person undergoes surgery for a liver disease, the surgeon can remove just diseased parts of the liver. Electric probes to destroy cancerous cells are also being developed and are in the experimental stage now, he

Poinsettias

said. When an audience member asked why some new cancer medications are so expensive, Kankesan explained that it’s a product of the expensive nature of development. A pharmaceutical company may develop 100 drugs, but find only one of them to be effective. So then, it has to supplement the costs of all 100 drugs through the revenue of just one on the market. However, BGHF executive director Drew Brown, pointed out that the foundation has a program that allows donations to go to patients who need to access an expensive drug – a rare service for an Ontario hospital. Kankesan also stressed that the fight against cancer sometimes moves slowly, but it’s important to remember that progress is being made. “Advances in care are not home runs, they’re single shots,” he said. “We need you to help so that we can fund the work we do.”

County council wants say on school closures BY JACK EVANS

The regional board of education has a mandate to operate the school system in the best interests of taxpayers, but Hastings County Council thinks it should also have a say – at least when it comes to closing schools. Reports that the board of education is considering closing several schools throughout its two-county region inspired a lively debate in county council. Members recalled other school closures in some of their areas and the impact on their communities where schools are also used for social

and community events. Some councillors could sympathize with the board having to make the best of a bad situation when it comes to budgeting, but they also want input into the pressing need to close some schools and what options might be available. Their concern is not so much about education and its costs the welfare of communities they represent. Leading the concerns was CarloMayo Reeve Bonnie Adams. Noting that a meeting had been held in Belleville to discuss the board’s accommodation problems, “We did not receive any notice of it,” she told her fellow councillors, adding, “There

are three schools in the northern region that could potentially be impacted by the board’s decisions.” There was some comfort from Marmora and Lake Mayor Terry Clemenson that it will take months of consultation before final decisions are made, but others pressed for immediate action, to deal directly with the Minister of Education and also to arrange talks with the board. Mayor Jo-Anne Albert of Tweed said her town still has bitter memories of the closing of the high school there some years ago. “It does impact a community when you close a school,” she said. Warden Rick Phillips agreed that

a letter be sent to the minister and also to arrange discussions with the board of education. Council also discussed a new policy announced by the provincial government to allow firefighters to be upgraded in their qualifications as paramedics. County CEO Jim Pine advised that the province’s paper on the issue has already raised alarm bells in the Association of Municipalities of Ontario. “This would potentially mean a significant increase in fire budgets, which are 100 per cent funded by municipal taxes,” he noted. The costs could arise either from training

costs or increased pay to match new requirements or both. Reeve Tom Deline of Centre Hastings pointed out that his community already pays about $60,000 a year for fire training costs and that could rise dramatically. Pine acknowledged that in its position paper, the province spells out that rural municipalities could opt out, but “There are still many questions about how it would work and who is in charge. Meanwhile, county council awaits a detailed report from its own Emergency Services Chief Doug Socha. Council’s next meeting will see the formal induction of the new warden,

New team records set during BYST Meet weekend

BY ERIN STEWART

Belleville – About 300 youth swimmers travelled to Belleville to compete in the Belleville Youth Swim Team’s (BYST) annual Fall Invitational ‘BYST Meet’ over the weekend. The three-day event from Friday Nov. 25-27 included swimmers from clubs in Carleton Place, Ernestown, Kingston, Whitby, Milton and the Quinte Dolpins racing at the Templeman Menninga Aquatics Centre at the Quinte Sports and Wellness Centre.

Swim Team, said the meet ran perfectly. “We put on quite the show for visiting clubs, they love the facility, we make sure that the pool is nice and fast by lowering the water temperature and altogether we just work as one and delivery a really fantastic meet,” he said. “Everyone seems to be happy and swimming fast and no complaints.” About 108 of the BYST swimmers are swimming at an all time high which is allowing the team to have many new regional qualifiers in the 12 and under age group as well as many 13 and over provincial and national level qualifiers, said Oates. “It’s very important to us to get our younger swimmers out here and racing, as well as the seniors are coming off of a very intense swimming period and they’re swimming sensationally fast,” he said.

Vinkle earns MVP honour in NCAA hockey A former Belleville Bearcats girls hockey star is lighting it up on the NCAA circuit south of the border. Cassidy Vinkle won tournament MVP honours for the Clarkson Golden Knights at the Windjammer Classic Division 1 NCAA women’s hockey Classic, held last weekend in Burlington, Vermont.

Vinkle, who recorded her first career NCAA hat trick last week, notched the game-winner for Clarkson as the Golden Knights defeated host Vermont 3-1 in the tournament final. Vinkle, a graduate of St. Theresa Secondary School, has been nominated for Clarkson Athlete of the Week the past two weeks.

G-Hawks down Dukes

Wellington – The Trenton Golden Hawks travelled down the road to Wellington and played a full 60 minutes to beat the hosts 4-1 on Friday Nov. 25. With no goals scored in the first period, the Hawks came out strong in the second and Ben Scheel put the first point on the board with a goal assisted by Louis DiMatteo and Rex Moe four minutes in. Captain Lucas Brown followed up with his first goal of the evening six minutes later, assisted by Chays Ruddy. Then, just 35 seconds later, Jordan Chard scored, assisted by Nick Boddy and Brandon Marinelli. The Dukes came back quick with their first goal and only goal of the night scored 11 minutes into the second by Mitchell Martan, assisted by Colin Doyle and Mitchell Mendonca. Brown scored his second goal of the night 10 minutes into the third period, rounding out the scoring for the night at 4-1 for the Hawks. The Hawks totalled 20 minutes in penalties on six infractions while the Dukes incurred eight minutes on four infractions. Trenton’s goaltender Joseph Murdaca made 29 saves on 30 shots while the Duke’s Connor Ryckman made 42 saves out of the 46 shots he faced.

Saints title match slushed out in Ottawa, then Kingston It’s not often a football game is called on account of snow, much less three to four centimetres of slushy stuff on an artificial field. But, that’s what happened to scupper the chances of Quinte Junior Saints plating in their first-ever National Capital Bowl football game last Saturday. The 2016 National Capital Bowl junior AA championship game between the Quinte Saints and Kingston Frontenac Falcons was cancelled Saturday due to unsafe playing conditions at Beckwith Fields, near Carleton Place. Both teams arrived at the facility believing the game was a go, only to have the contest called off due to a snow-covered field that had not been cleared.

Despite the fact both teams were declared cochampions by convenors, the coaches and officials from both teams decided to play the game on a site outside of Ottawa. Queen’s University’s Richardson Stadium was available, so the match was to have been played Wednesday at the Queen’s venue. However, a late decision Monday put that game on ice, too, as well as any hopes of getting the Capital Bowl for juniors off the ground. Coaches for both Quinte Secondary School and Frontenac expressed disappointment both at the loss of the game and the officials in Ottawa who were unable to make the Beckwith field ready for play.

MBQ Council receives touching tribute to Aboriginal soldier TERRY MCNAMEE

Tyendinaga- Every Remembrance Day, people recall the soldiers lost and wounded in many wars with the phrase "We will remember them." Now, thanks to the Vimy Foundation, they are being remembered all year long by a new generation of young people. One of those soldiers was Joseph Bernard Hill of the Mohawks of the Bay of Quinte. Hill, who died in 1918 during the First World War, was honoured at the Mohawk Council in Tyendinaga on Friday, Nov. 25. A student named Andrew Yin gave the council a cloth rubbing of Hill's gravestone in France. Andrew, a 17-year-old high school student from Richmond Hill, was born in China, and thus did not grow up knowing the importance of Remembrance Day to Canada. When he decided to research the life of a soldier from the First World War for an essay contest, he chose an Aboriginal soldier as his subject because, he said, he knows what it is like to be a member of a minority. In his research, Andrew discovered that Hill was born in New York State, but later moved to Canada with his family. Hill was 19 years old and living in Deseronto when the Great War began. He enlisted in the Canadian Corps in 1915 and fought on the European Front with the 7th Brigade, Royal Canadian Artillery. On Sept. 30, 1918, Hill was killed in action in

northern France. He was only 22 years old. Andrew's essay won him the Beaverbrook Vimy Prize, which included a two-week trip to Europe to visit important historic sites from both of the world wars. He was one of 16 students aged 15 to 17 from across Canada to receive the award in 2016. The trip was emotional for the young students. "There were some really depressing days," Andrew said. "Seeing the names carved on the Vimy Memorial was really harrowing. But I feel really proud of the sacrifices of these people." He told the MBQ council about his trip, which began in London with a visit to the Churchill bunker, the Canadian Memorial, and a lecture at Oxford University. He said the group visited Essex Farm Cemetery in Ypres, Belgium, where Canadian Army Major John McCrae wrote his famous poem "In Flanders' Fields". Seeing the grave of a Canadian soldier who was only 15 when he was killed really hit home with Andrew, but visiting a cemetery for German soldiers made him realize that those enemy soldiers "were just like us, with families." The students visited the chalk tunnels of Maison Blanche, which are filled with carved messages and drawing left by Canadian soldiers who sought shelter from the German bombs. Andrew said the carv-

ings made them all realize that the soldiers were more than just names. "It's important that we see these soldiers as actual human beings," he said. Other visits included the battle sites at Vimy, Arras, Juno Beach, Dieppe, and the American Omaha Cemetery. Andrew also visited the small Ontario Cemetery in Sains-lesMarquion in northern France, where he found the grave of the soldier whose life he had studied. He said that seeing his headstone and knowing about Hill's life has inspired him to make his own life count and encourages him to help make Canada a better place. "In 2016, Joseph Hill, your contributions have not been forgotten," Andrew said. Council members were visibly moved by Andrew's talk.

"Now that is a proper tribute to our veterans," said Chief R. Donald Maracle. As Andrew presented him with the cloth rubbing from Hill's tombstone, Maracle said, "On behalf of the Mohawk Council, I'd like to thank you." He said Aboriginal soldiers seldom get the recognition they deserve, so Andrew's work on behalf of Hill was greatly appreciated.

Andrew Yin, one of the winners of this year’s Beaverbrook Vimy Prize, gave a talk to the band council of the Mohawks of the Bay of Quinte in Tyendinaga on Friday, Nov. 25, before presenting Chief Donald Maracle with a cloth rubbing of the stone that marks the grave of Corporal Joseph Bernard Hill of the Mohawks of the Bay of Quinte. Hill was killed in battle in northern France on Sept. 30, 1918, at the age of 22. Terry McNamee/Metroland

Woman pleads guilty to starving horses Shannonville – A 56-year-old Shannonville woman has pleaded guilty to three counts of animal cruelty under the Ontario SPCA Act and is banned from owning livestock for 10 years after failing to care for her horses. On June 22, the Ontario SPCA received a call about two emaciated horses at a property in Shannonville, east of Belleville. The attending officer found a 34-year-old mare and 18-year-old gelding that were extremely thin, with their ribs, hips and spine

protruding. Living in poor conditions, the horses had no food or water and were in need of veterinary care. As a result of the investigation, Catherine Lachapelle was charged with permitting distress, failing to provide adequate and appropriate food and water and failing to provide medical attention for the horses. She pleaded guilty on November 21 to all three counts and received a 10-year prohibition from owning any livestock and was also placed on probation for

two years. Lachapelle surrendered the horses to the Ontario SPCA where they received immediate care and veterinary attention. After being rehabilitated, the mare was adopted and the gelding is currently going through the “re-homing process,” said a statement from the OSPCA. To report animal cruelty or neglect, call the Ontario SPCA’s 24-hour, province-wide dispatch centre at 310SPCA.

Thieves target parcels in cars – lock them out Belleville - Each Christmas shopping season, thieves target vehicles in mall and commercial parking lots for gift items carelessly left in unlocked vehicles in plain sight. For that reason, Belleville police have once again launched their 'Lock It or Lose It' program. Beginning Friday, members of Belleville Community Policing and Belleville police service Auxiliary Constables will be out in the community to kick off the Lock it or Lose it Campaign. "This successful crime prevention program focuses on reducing vehicle

thefts and thefts from vehicles especially during the holiday season," said police in a statement Friday. "Starting today, vehicles will be checked in parking lots throughout the city of Belleville to ensure vehicles are locked and valuables are kept out of sight. Pamphlets will be placed on vehicle windshields advising vehicle owners of the inspection. This successful campaign highlights the importance of everyone working together for a safer community." Police warn, where and when possible, to store gifts in car trunks or covered in vehicles and to ensure all doors are locked and windows closed.


LETTER TO THE EDITOR

Cost of hearing aids punishing for seniors Dear Editor, Why is there is no regulation for hearing aid prices in Canada? Prices can range from $3,000 to over $6,000. While there is a government deduction of $1,000 to the consumer, hearing aids can still cost an exorbitant amount for many seniors and low income individuals. Vendor providers inflate the prices to make this a highly lucrative business. Prices, for example, can cost anywhere from a mild hearing loss hearing aid of $3,000 $4,000, while intermediate devices and more severe hearing loss can range much higher. Even with the government kicking in $1,000, this still leaves a substantial amount of money for the consumer to find. While one can finance at approximately 7-8%, it still means that many seniors have to go into debt for this significant improvement in ear health, brain health, hearing ability and quality of life, at any age.

Even those seniors lucky enough to have Medical Insurance Plans can only expect anywhere from $100 to $300 reimbursement. The bulk of the costs are from the manufacturers’ research money in developing the hearing aid, the cost of the local dealer, the limited amount of consumers or the expense of running a brick and mortar business. All the added costs are passed on to the consumer hence the high prices. Apparently, according to research, many thousands of Canadians with age related hearing loss just don’t buy them as they simply cannot afford them, especially those living on government pensions and other allowances. This seems to be a highly ineffective way of helping our seniors age gracefully, keeping their minds sharp and their hearing optimal via hearing aids.

Glenora fights weather to complete stocking program MUSIC & COMEDY

JACK EVANS

Picton - Glenora Fisheries Research staff are fighting a deadline with the weather to complete their scheduled lake trout stocking program for the year. Thousands of small lake trout were unloaded Tuesday Nov. 22 despite harsh winds, heaving waves and a delayed delivery truck. Hauled to the station, just east of Picton, in large steel tanks on flatbed trucks, the small fish are pumped into large tanks on board the station’s large trawler tug, 60 feet long, tied up at a dock. With water levels still very

low, the entrance opening to the trawler remains several feet below the dock, making it difficult to the point of hazardous for crew to get up and down, even moreso with the boat bouncing wildly in the surging waves. In recent days, winds, weather and even a mechanical breakdown have hampered the staff ’s efforts to get their young trout delivered and emptied at strategic locations in the bay and surrounding waters. A spokesperson at the station said the staff normally allow extra time to account for problems and weather, but this year, time is running out.

A large tank on board the trawler receives the hatchlings which are later pumped into the water by a large hose. Jack Evans/Metroland

An Exhilarating Off-road Tour in Sedona, Arizona

JOHN M. SMITH

On my recent visit to Sedona, I took an off-road tour with Sedona Offroad Adventures. After all, these tours are apparently the most popular way to get out and explore Sedona's rugged landscape and eye-popping scenery, and this particular company offers tours from "mild to wild", by both jeep and Hummer. My particular tour took me in a Hummer up on the Colorado Plateau to a height of about 2,000 feet above Sedona. We climbed to the Schnebly Hill Vista, an awesome overlook, and although much of our ride wasn't truly off-road, it was on a very old, unimproved stagecoach road that I certainly wouldn't have been able to navigate in a car. In fact, even the jeep tours on this so-called road offered a "shake, rattle, and roll" experience, for the tourists could be seen bouncing around and getting shaken up. You might want to hold on to your hat, glasses, and stomach! In fact, it's recommended that you skip this tour altogether if you have serious back or neck problems or are pregnant. It's also suggested that you don't wear contact lenses, for it can get very dusty on these rides. Even our Hummer tour offered some good bounces, but this machine could handle the boulders and jutting rocks quite well, and we were able to keep on rolling. Also, the Hummer allows everyone to have a forward facing seat, equipped with an individual seat belt. I rode shotgun, so I was right up front, next to the driver. One of our very first sightings was of a mannequin on a balcony on a large house on a hill that's known as "Sedona's House of Seven Arches". We were told that this mannequin was in honour of comedian and actress Lucille Ball, formerly of "I Love Lucy" fame, who used to often stay in this particular house. It's still sometimes referred to as "Lucy's House"

- and if you happen to remember the very old Doublemint commercials on TV, where young twin girls would talk about "doubling your pleasure" by chewing Doublemint Gum, well, one of these twins eventually became the owner of this very house. As we ascended the Colorado Plateau, our guide/driver would give us a lot of pertinent information about the area's unique rock structures and the plants that we saw along the way, too. He'd give us the names of particular rocky precipices and buttes as we passed, and he even found one that he said we'd call the "Smith Amphitheatre" today. However, he was particularly informative about pointing out plants that were edible and used by natives for healing purposes, for it turns out that he had studied these. For example, he pointed out some Manzanita (which translates from Spanish as "little apples"), Mormon tea, blackberry, canyon grape, and banana yucca. He also pointed out some mistletoe that

was growing along this escarpment, and he told us that this particular plant was poisonous, so he thought that it was rather peculiar that we picked a poisonous plant to use as a symbol for kissing at Christmas time! Other poisonous plants included oleander, century plant, castor bean, and candelabras cactus. Our guide's name was VJ Mitchell, and he was a real entertainer. After all, another job of his is as the "Elvis of Sedona", so he would suddenly burst into an Elvis Presley song as we rode along! His Elvis impersonations have actually led him to gigs in such places as Las Vegas and Hawaii, and he loves to perform. He often sings at weddings in the area, or delivers singing telegrams. He also liked to shout out "Thank you. Thank you very much" in his Elvis voice as we drove along. He's not shy!

Quinte Symphony’s Mozart tribute will remember a youthful genius JACK EVANS

The Quinte Symphony's tribute to child prodigy Mozart will be one of the most ambitious programs the local orchestra has undertaken in some years. To be held on Dec. 10 at 7:30 p.m. in Bridge Street Church, the timing is meant to reflect the precise day and same approximate time Mozart died in Vienna 225 years ago. It also involves a regional ad hoc choir that has been rehearsing

for months, drawing singers from Campbellford to Picton and as far as Kingston. It will also feature a unique "portatif," a hand -operated type of pipe organ that can trace its origins back to ancient Greece. This will be the first time many, if not most area residents have ever seen such an instrument. Finally, the major work will be Mozart's inspiring, tuneful and stirring "Requiem," as stated on the pro-

gram, his "last words." He died before he could quite finish it. But he did leave notes which were completed by an associate composer for the work we know and love today. The "Requiem" will involve several professional soloists, including the Quinte area's own Elizabeth McDonald and Kim Dafoe and Kingston-based Bruce Kelly, baritone and Robert Martin, both known to music-loving audiences in Belleville and area.

Topping off the program will be a delightful Mozart piano concerto, introducing British-born pianist Clare Gordon for the first time in Belleville. It has often been said that Mozart can be compared to sunshine when it comes to music. Because of the memorial aspects of this unique concert, the orchestra will not be playing its traditional Christmas program, leaving that to many other musical organizations in

the area, at least for this year. It may not be Christmas music, but orchestra officials contend it will sound like that. Tickets, at $25 for adults, $20 for seniors and students are now available at the Quinte Arts Council office, Sam the Record Man, Quinte Mall, Books and Company, Picton, and on line. Tickets are also available at the website, "thequintesymphony. com."

Panto must go on – with a cast change JACK EVANS

Stirling- Just as this year's Stirling Festival Theatre panto, "Jack and the Beanstalk," was about to open, the cast has experienced a major change. Veteran Debbie Collins, who has performed in several SFT pantomimes has been asked to take part in a major traveling cast production. Joanne Hartmann, theatre spokesperson, said the theatre has made amicable agreement to let Collins go and has recruited a long-time associate of Collins, Christina Gordon, to take over the role of Fairy of the Field . The show opened last weekend, and Collins will remain with the cast to tidy up choreography until Dec. 10 before turning the role over to Gordon. "I have done several shows, including pantos, at SFT," said Gordon from her Toronto home last week. "I am delighted to return to Stirling

and to work with Debbie and the rest of the crew. I know most of them and have known Debbie for some years. We just never seem to get the chance to be on stage together. The chance for me came just as I was wrapping up a show here so it is ideal timing."She noted she did shows during the first year Caroline Smith opened the theater 20 years ago, including the first panto, "Aladdin." Collins expressed thanks to the theatre for allowing her to leave her contract. The opportunity is to join a major new road show which will rehearse in Toronto then go on tour throughout the United States and across western Canada for several months. "I'll remain to finish the choreography and stay with "Jack and the Beanstalk" until Dec. 10," she said. Gordon will arrive Dec. 4 and spend several days learning the role and the script before taking over after that.

Bossio garnering kudos from national municipal body Local Member of Parliament Mike Bossio is getting rave reviews from the national body that represents municipalities for the MP’s work in raising the voice of rural communities on Parliament Hill. After a recent rural forum, held by the federation, FCM president Clark Somerville and FCM Rural Forum Chair Ray Orb issued the following statement after hosting a meeting in Ottawa with Mike Bossio, MP (Hastings-Lennox and Addington) and Chair of the Liberal Party of Canada’s National Rural Caucus. In its statement, the FCM said “Phase 2 of the federal infrastructure plan is an unprecedented opportunity to foster growth and a higher quality of life across Canada. In September, the Rural Forum endorsed a plan to ensure Phase 2 works

for communities of all sizes. Earlier this month, the Fall Economic Statement responded with new, dedicated investments for rural and northern priorities.”

“Members of FCM’s Rural Forum are encouraged by today’s productive dialogue in Ottawa with Mike Bossio,” said the statement. “As chair of the federal Liberals’ National Rural Caucus, Mr. Bossio has shown himself to be a strong partner in our efforts to strengthen Canada’s rural, northern and remote communities - communities vital to Canada’s social, cultural and econom-

ic future.” According to FCM, the next phase of infrastructure spending for the government “will need to support the broad range of capital priorities of less populated areas - including roads and bridges, water and wastewater treatment, septic system upgrades and the full range of transportation and mobility needs in rural areas. With Phase 2 design details expected no later than Budget 2017, members of FCM’s Rural Forum look forward to continuing our dialogue with Mr. Bossio and his government colleagues. For the millions of Canadians who live in rural, northern and remote communities, significant quality-of-life improvements may be just around the corner.” The FCM bills itself as “the national voice of local government, with nearly 2,000 members representing 90 per cent of Canada’s population.”

Amnesty International Belleville to mark International Human Rights Day Dec. 10 Belleville - Last year at this time, Yecenia Armenta was in a Mexican jail. She had been raped, suffocated and tortured by the police until she confessed to a crime she did not commit. Then a remarkable thing happened: 300,000 actions (letters and signatures on petitions) from people around the world were written on her behalf, coordinated by Amnesty International (AI) for International Human Rights Day. More than 50 of those letters came from the Quinte area. Within six months, after four years in jail, Armenta was released.

“Without this support, my freedom would have been almost impossible,” Armenta said when she was released from jail. “I want to thank you and to urge you to continue your efforts.”

Serious savings on great looking S furniture? Let the shopping begin!

ery Dec. 10, as many as 3 million people around the world take part in AI’s Write for Rights, in support of human rights defenders and prisoners of conscience; those imprisoned for peacefully exercising their rights to freedom of expression and assembly. This is the world’s largest human rights event. “Yecenia was just one of the prisoners and human rights defenders who were helped to freedom and fairness last year,”

Connie Gallupe, chair of AI’s Belleville group, said. “Shining a spotlight on the dark nooks and crannies really does make a difference.”

This year, AI’s Belleville Group 111 is sponsoring Write for Rights on Saturday, Dec. 10 at Bridge Street United Church, 60 Bridge Street East. Those interested in participating can drop in any time between 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. For more information, call Connie at On International Human Rights Day ev- 962-7416 or Mike at 969-1782.

The Good Earth: Rock On!

Dan Clost There are so many ways in which stones can be used in a landscape and only a few of those ways can be said to be “wrong”; perhaps a kinder word to use is “unsuitable”. Then again, since all landscapes are constructs one might simply say that the artistic concept is a titch off centre. This allows generous latitude in the critique of the design with the architect’s only reviewer of note being the person who signs the cheque. However, some things are

“wrong” and always will be so. Many years ago, when I was a student trodding the dusty halls of academia, I wrote a paper on the placement of stones, quoting a fellow who is now well-known to many in the landscape industry, Michael Boers. I’ve lost that paper but I do remember the gist of his statement: “The most common mistake people make with stones is to place them upside down.” The challenge is that most stones are big, heavy and difficult to move so once they have been set into place they are seldom “un”placed. Upside down stones are easily seen in a natural stone wall and can best be explained by quoting the words from a very famous folk song: “One of these things is not like the others.” (Yes, Gentle Reader, I know it is from a children’s show; however, the immortal Louis Armstrong said, “All music is folk music. I ain’t never heard a horse sing a song.”) Another common mistake, usually gen-

erated by a pencil sharpening gnome in the accounting department, is to select less appropriate material. For example, armour stone (not to be confused with the propriety product) is large quarried material often used to protect against the elements. When exposed to our winter’s freeze and thaw cycles, shale slabs will quickly deteriorate, yet they are commonly used in low-budget sites. Within a few years, they are nothing more than a crumbled pile of stone shards. Whether you are contemplating large stones as

an ornamental feature or for a substantial structure, the best thing you can do is bring in the professionals. Make sure to view their work and ... as when hiring any contractor ... ask to see their certifications and liability coverage. Perhaps the best known form of gardening with stones is, eponymously enough, the Japanese stone garden. Sometimes called a Zen garden, which more accurately reflects its purpose, it is more appropriate to call it karesansui or dry land gardening. This more accurately reflects the use of stone and

its components, e.g. sand, to represent water’s movement where there is none. I believe it best to use the proper term (as much as we are able to understand it as there is a cross-cultural element that doesn’t’ always translate to our western sensitivities) to keep us on track. These gardens are often created with relaxation and meditation in mind. Balance is extremely important, especially with the size of the stones in relation to the overall dimension of the garden space. The type of stone used is left to the selector however it is required that these stones

be shaped by nature and not quarried. You can make it part of your mission to tour the country-side looking for just the right shaped stone. (It is important to note that there may be by-laws restricting “harvesting” from road-sides.) Stones can be a strong element in the landscape and is certainly worth investigation for your estate. However, there are perils which can be avoided by some simple research. As Van Halen (and many others) once exclaimed, “Rock on!”

IN MEMORIAM

In Memory Velma Dafoe My wife Velma for 51 years. The love of my life gone 7 years. I couldn’t have found a better partner and wife. We had the relationship and commitment few can achieve and the rest dream of. The 1st year in the army was tough financially, but it got better quickly. Through good jobs and investments we were able to do any and everything we ever dreamed of. We spent 50 years traveling the world at every opportunity. In 1985 my wife bought me a new Harley Davidson, we flew it to Europe on a 747 and toured Europe for the summer. The most important thing I ever said was our wedding vows - Love, Honour, and Cherish, and I practiced that every day. I was away many times in the army, Germany, Cyprus, Jerusalem, Beirut, and many other places for extended periods of time. And always engraved in my mind when I looked in the mirror were the words - Love, Honour and Cherish. One last word of advice... Hug your wife and tell her you love her daily, that chance may be gone in a heart beat. And if you smoke.... Quit. God gave man no greater reward after a life time of commitment then to spend your twilight years in each others arms watching the sun go down. John Dafoe
