BWG council proceeding alone on OPP costing



Despite Innisfil’s decision to hit pause on the joint OPP costing for police services last week, Bradford West Gwillimbury will forge ahead alone. Addressing Bradford council Tuesday, police services board chairperson Lori Boudreau explained that delaying the costing would provide South Simcoe Police’s new Chief, Rick Beazley, an opportunity to find as many efficiencies as possible prior to the OPP coming back with a figure. Chief Beazley, who was hired in March, told council members that a committee of 24 officers and police civilians have already found up to $800,000 in efficiencies and “put more boots on the ground” through reassignments, including the retirement of a staff-sergeant. The inclusive approach to hunting for efficiencies has already bolstered the force’s morale, Chief Beazley said, adding he, too, is concerned about the rising cost of policing in See page 8

Farmers battle hot, dry weather BY SEAN PEARCE

It’s not easy being a farmer right now. The hot dry conditions have been hard on many over the past several weeks, but the conditions are especially harsh for those growing food down in the Holland Marsh. The rich, black soil amplifies the temperature, Holland Marsh Growers’ Association executive director Jamie Reaume

explained, and the scarcity of rain this summer has forced most growers to irrigate their crops on a near-constant basis. “Once we start (watering), it’s pretty much for the whole day,” he said, adding irrigation at least gives farmers some measure of control. “It’s the reality, but it’s a good reality, because it’s far easier See page 4.

Every municipality in York Region has a bylaw prohibiting excessive noise that interferes with residents’ quality of life. The specifics of what kind of noise and when and where it can be made differ from community to community. For example in Aurora, yelling, shouting, hooting, whistling, singing, playing musical instruments or any other noise is forbidden between 7 p.m. and 7 a.m. the next day. Consider yourself informed if you want to add some live-music merriment to your party.

Barbecue Rubs and

If you live in Markham, meanwhile, the city’s noise bylaw states all outdoor functions on private property require a permit and loud parties are not allowed. There may be even more restrictions if you live near Markham Stouffville Hospital or Shouldice Hospital, because they are in quiet zones. A Markham customer relations representative suggested contacting the city’s bylaw department if you are planning a large gathering to determine if you require a permit.

Wines, beers can provide perfect complement to your grilling experience


JULY 19:


While summer is a time to entertain in the back yard, you need to remember laws and how you could be liable if you are not a responsible host.

Smart Serve Ontario, which trains and certifies alcohol servers in the province and has been endorsed by the province’s Alcohol and Gaming Commission, has a list of suggestions for a savvy party host. Some things you can do as a host: • Monitor alcohol consumption by your guests during the party; • Stop serving alcohol well before the end of the party. It can take 20 minutes for people to feel the alcohol they’ve consumed and that could mean the difference between safe and unsafe driving; • Don’t take risks: Serve alcohol yourself, get a responsible family member or friend as a barkeeper or hire a professional with a Smart Serve designation. And don’t serve to the point of intoxication; • Make sure no one drinks on an empty stomach and serve high-starch, high-protein snacks, which assist the body in processing alcohol and; • Choose drinks with lower alcohol content or pour one ounce drinks instead of 1.5 oz.

The art of tasting should apply to more than what’s on the grill during a back yard barbecue gathering. Just ask Markham connoisseur Dean Christofilos, who has been in the wine, spirits and beer industry for 23 years, with numerous certificates and training in hospitality and tourism. “In today’s rule, we drink what we like,” Mr. Christofilos said. “I taste one thing, you may taste something else.” While there is still the general rule of thumb that white meats and seafood go with white wine and red meats go with red wine, Mr. Christofilos encouraged people to be open-minded when it comes to trying new drinks, especially when invited to a back yard barbecue. “When it’s free, you should be all over tasting different things,” said the self-proclaimed “seasonal drinker”, who is the GTA represen-

tative for Coyote’s Run Estate Winery in St. David’s village in Niagaraon-the-Lake. “I enjoy and respect what I drink,” Mr. Christofilos said. “If I want a beer and it’s warm, I’ll put ice cubes in. If you are cracking open a $90 bottle of wine, treat it as such. It’s about the experience of the moment.” If you are hosting a back yard barbecue, Mr. Christofilos suggested offering a few whites and a few reds to let your guests mix and match according to their preferences. “There are no hard and fast rules when it comes to pairing wines with your grilled foods, just generalities that can get you going,” he said. “Ultimately, it is your palate that you are seeking to please by the wine-pairing.” If you are a guest of a barbecue and are unsure of what to bring, Mr. Christofilos said a safe wine would be unoaked chardonnay. “You still have the characteris-

tics of buttery, creamy and wellbalanced on the tongue, but you don’t have an oak feeling,” he said. Another safe option is pinot noir, which is a food-friendly pairing wine, Mr. Christofilos said. “It fits a food chart whether it’s grilled fish or a big, fat meaty burger,” he said. In addition to wines and beers, always have non-alcoholic options for non-drinkers and to be a responsible host, Mr. Christofilos said. “Typically, it’s one drink per hour or follow it with water,” he said. But before you serve your guests, Mr. Christofilos said it’s worth investing time to find out some of the untold stories behind the bottles. For example, there are actually coyotes on the Coyote’s Run Estate Winery, where each grape is handpicked, but that’s something you’d likely only learn if you visited the winery.

Wine pairings Dean Christofilos’ wine-pairing suggestions: Grill-friendly reds 4Merlot – Complements spicy sauces, goes well with grilled pork chops, chicken, garden-variety salads with lighter dressings. 4Shiraz/syrah - Delicious with just about any red meat. 4Cabernet sauvignon - Made for steaks with a higher fat content and beef or turkey burgers. 4Pinot noir - Ideal candidate for grilled fish, especially salmon, burgers and chicken. Grill-friendly whites 4Chardonnay - Works well with grilled fish (including shellfish), chicken with creamy sauces and grilled corn on the cob with lots of butter. 4Riesling - Perfect for grilled brats, shrimp, chicken, pineapple and veggies.

York is sizzling this summer. And temperatures that seem to be melting heat records on a daily basis may have you thinking about opening up the back yard and throwing a party. But even a well-intentioned host can get into a tough spot if a party gets boisterous, the tunes begin booming or the guests get pickled in booze. Violations of noise bylaws can raise the ire of your neighbours and flouting alcohol laws could result in legal problems. So, here’s a primer on what every responsible host must know before the party begins. If you over-serve a guest with booze and that guest gets into a collision related to impairment, you may get a knock on the door, York Regional Police note. It’s fair to say as the host/server, you would be investigated and spoken to as witness, but not a suspect, Const. Rebecca Boyd said. Legally, you would not be held a party to the crime, but the force argues hosts have a responsibility to ensure guests get home safely — including calling police if a driver is suspected to be impaired, she added.

to put the water on and deal with that than it is to have torrential rain.” Naturally, the vast majority of farmers’ fortunes are dependant on the whims of the weather. Rain has been a rarity and the relatively small amount of precipitation that has fallen has been of little help. “With that bit of rain we got on Sunday, a lot of the water ran right off the ground,” Mr. Reaume said. “That’s how dry things are.” The Holland Marsh grows some 60 dif-

ferent crops, Mr. Reaume said, noting some and many parts of central and eastern Canare more sensitive to the soaring tempera- ada are currently parched and experiencing tures than others.

serve as food for livestock. However, most of those farmers won’t see their profits increase, because they simply won’t have much of a yield, Mr. Reaume continued. If there’s a small harvest, there’s that much less crop to sell, he added. And while Holland Marsh farmers are able to mitigate many of the impacts of the heat and the dry conditions by turning to the canal and irrigating, there is one thing that gets them anxious: hail. The weather has been extreme and very unpredictable, Mr. Reaume said, adding that with any thunderstorm comes the possibility of hail. “A three-minute hailstorm inside the marsh will wipe us out for the year,” he said. “Now imagine what a 10-minute hailstorm with golf ball-sized hail could do. “Hail is the most devastating thing that can happen.” Regardless, the farmers continue to work the fields while crossing their fingers that the hail stays away. Asian vegetables, green and romaine lettuce, carrots and onions are all coming out of the marsh or will soon be on their way. Everything is about 10 days early this year, Mr. Reaume said, but, either way, the farmers will still be out working well into the fall.

The farmers in the marsh, and by extension local residents, are fortunate the canal system is there to help ensure that there will still be crops to harvest, Mr. Reaume said. “Certain parts of the province are really having a tough time,” he said. “They’re literally watching crops wither and burn before their very eyes.” Especially hard hit by the hot, arid conditions are crops such as corn, soybeans, wheat and other grains, Mr. Reaume said, adding that hay and straw are also suffering. The price of processed foods may rise as a result, he said, as will meat as some of those crops

TIM HORTONS CAMP DAY RAISES A RECORD $11 MILLION! Coffee sales and generous donations will help send more than 330 deserving kids from Simcoe County to camp this year

SIMCOE COUNTY, ON – July 12, 2012 – Thanks to loyal Tim Horton’s guests and generous restaurant owners, this year’s Camp Day raised a record $11 million across Canada and the United States, which will help send more than 15,000 deserving kids from economically disadvantaged homes including over 330 from Simcoe County on a once-in a-lifetime camping adventure.

On Camp Day, owners of more than 4,000 Tim Horton’s restaurants in Canada and the United States, generously donate all proceeds from coffee sales to the Tim Horton Children’s Foundation (THCF) and hold numerous fundraising events to raise even more money for the camps. Last year, the popular event raised $9.9 million and contributed significantly to sending kids from local schools and community groups to year-round camps

The Tim Horton Children’s Foundation started in 1975 in Parry Sound, ON and now operates six year-round camps across North America. Since its inception, more than 165,000 kids participated in the Foundation’s programs.

Our telephone & fax numbers have changed


Children are selected to attend the summer camp program by Tim Horton’s restaurant owners who work closely with local youth organizations and schools in their communities to identify kids who would most benefit from an experience at camp.

Time for tough love with teachers, Premier Dad

Editor Tracy Kibble

Retail Advertising Manager Dave Williams 126 Bridge St., Box 459, Bradford, ON L3Z 2B1

General Manager John Willems


feel for you, Premier Dad. You spoil them rotten, giving them practically everything they ask for — in my case, that means constantly handing out money to the kids for movies and the mall; driving them all over at all hours of the day and night and/or allowing them to drive the car, full of gas I paid for; buying $90 sweatpants and $200 slouchy boots, fancy phones and laptops; and forking out for countless sports tournament trips and vacations to warm climates. In your case, that means giving teachers a 12-per-cent wage increase over four years in 2008, making Ontario’s teachers the second highest paid in the world, ranging from $41,000-plus to nearly $93,000 for elementary teachers and $94,600 for secondary teachers. Heaven forbid, Premier Dad, that you should ask for something in return when you’re up against the wall and what you get is whining, wailing, rolling eyes and slamming doors. Oh, that’s me. But you’re paying the price, Premier Dad, for making teachers your pets during the last eight years. The economy has tanked, leaving most of us grappling with a higher cost of living on the same or decreased salaries. Yes, it’s time for tough love, with teacher contracts expiring in August and a $15-billion deficit to face. And it is love. We admire and respect our teachers, most of whom are caring, committed and passionate about their profession. By no stretch of imagination could you call their jobs easy. For most of us, this isn’t about bashing teachers; it’s about Ontario’s economic reality. So, Premier Dad, it’s fair you are seeking appreciation in the form of a two-year wage freeze and changes to the salary grid, pension plans and payouts for banked sick days. These aren’t grievous requests — even the unions admit a wage freeze may be in order — but the unions are “insulted” by the ultimatum. Do it or I’ll take away your cell-

Debora Kelly phone ... er... or I’ll legislate it, you’re telling them, Premier Dad. I’m just saying, this do-it-orelse gambit typically backfired for me, so I now feign parental rationality. We agree, Premier Dad, it’s only fair teachers — and anybody else making a living on the taxpayers’ back — should do their part. The fact is teachers will still have job security and perks out of reach of most Ontarians. Nobody feels sorry for teachers. So hats off to the Catholic teachers union, which brokered a deal last week, after convincing Premier Dalton McGuinty to approve negotiation. The two-year agreement includes a wage freeze, loss of sick days and three unpaid days, equal to a 1.5-per-cent pay cut that will finance the $7,000 “grid” hike new teachers will still get. If all the unions got on board, the province would save $790 million over two years. Admittedly, a drop in the $15-billion-deficit bucket. The high school and Frenchlanguage teachers unions have decided to meet with the government, while elementary teachers are still just threatening to hold a one-day walkout if the province legislates a deal. While the unions say teachers will be back at school, strike votes will take place this summer or early fall. Premier Dad, we agree, teachers, too, have to help Ontario get back on its fiscal feet, regardless of whose fault it is. But give them a chance to talk about it before you ground them ... er... legislate the terms of the deal. And teachers, get back to the bargaining table, and if you don’t like the result, at least you get to vote against this Dad in the next election.


Why is council hell-bent on decimating Bond Head?

crediting those concerns. The lack of corporate or industrial investment in our town — you can only ride the ineffectual Toromont pony for so long and low-paying retail won’t cover the costs of living here — proves the focus is to increase the residential tax base, with the development of typical cookie-cutter townhouses and duplexes with postage stamp yards. Quality of life, be damned; developers need to squeeze as much profitability from each square acre, while the town rakes in the ever-increasing taxes. I guess we have comfort in knowing the countdown is on to the next municipal election. In the meantime, anyone in Bond Head interested in secession from BWG?

Re: Town remains focused on Hwy. 400 for future jobs, July 12. Reviewing the recent mailing from our beloved Town of Bradford West Gwillimbury regarding the “proposed” decimation of the hamlet of Bond Head, I can’t help but shake my head.

COUNCIL: Bradford going it alone on OPP costing

Town tenders everything, policing should be no different: mayor From page 1.

Canada and stressed his desire to work with both municipalities to deliver an efficient and cost-effective service. “I believe South Simcoe (Police) is sustainable for the future,” he said. “I wouldn’t be speaking to you today, if I didn’t believe that.” The majority of council commended the chief on finding so many efficiencies so quickly, but also stated their intent to move forward on the costing.

Ward 4 Councillor Carl Hordyk, who got the ball rolling on the costing last year, thanked Chief Beazley for his work so far, but suggested that he still had a “long way to go”. The most recent figures indicate that New Tecumseth pays about $2.6 million less for OPP service than Bradford does for South Simcoe Police, Mr. Hordyk said, while Innisfil is paying an additional $5 million or so. “I think we should be looking at continuing forward with the OPP costing,” he said. “We’re not proposing to make any changes, but I think we should continue with the pro-

Once the OPP have South Simcoe’s information, it will take another eight to 12 weeks to learn how much it would cost the provincial force to provide the same level of service.

-Mayor of Bradford West Gwillimbury

Chief Beazley responded that South Simcoe should be able to forward all of information the OPP requires by July 30 “or thereabouts”. Ward 1 Councillor Raj Sandhu echoed Mr. Hordyk’s sentiments on the costing and stressed that the exercise wasn’t about switching forces, but rather getting a better handle on how much it costs to serve and protect the community. That being said, Mr. Sandhu had a few concerns. “Are you telling me that we’ve paid $600,000 to $800,000 more, maybe for the last 17 years,

because no one bothered to look (for savings)?” he said. “I think we need to continue looking for efficiencies and get a costing from the OPP.” Councillors James Leduc, Gary Lamb, Ron Simpson, Peter Dykie, Del Crake and Deputy Mayor Rob Keffer took turns voicing their support with continuing the OPP costing. “The decision to take on the costing was made by both Innisfil and Bradford,” Mr. Crake said. “I think it behooves Bradford to move ahead with this costing. “I think the public requires that.” For his part, Mayor Doug White stated that there were always three options in play: one costing for Innisfil, one for just Bradford and then a joint venture between the two municipalities. Last week’s decision by Innisfil Council negated two of those, he said, but it didn’t preclude Bradford from proceeding solo. If Bradford has the opportunity to reduce its policing costs by $2.6 million, then council owes it to the residents to at least explore it, Mr. White continued. The decision to pursue the costing is the easy part, he said, noting the hard part will be determining a course of action once all of the facts are in. “At the end of the day, if we move forward on this, we need to have all of the information before going ahead,” Mr. White said. “Everything we do we go to the market for, whether it’s small things, like telephones and computers, or big things, like roads and bridges. “This is the single biggest expense for our taxpayers.” -with files from Rick Vanderlinde

ENVIRONMENT: Money helps groups protect watercourses

Ontario Streams receives $10K grant BY DAVID FLEISCHER


You can get support in helping the environment thanks to a $10,000 grant to Ontario Streams. The money will help the organization support community groups in protecting watercourses throughout Simcoe County and York Region. “When we get the community involved, people begin to see the impact our activities have on the environment,” Adopt-a-Stream program co-ordinator Deborah Silver said. It’s her program that received the grant that will be used to improve volunteer training. It’s those volunteers, about 30 groups, who keep an eye on streams across the region.

The grants are awarded to applicants with the greatest need, most innovation in addressing the environment and best chance of making an impact in their community. “It is exciting to see the important work being done in communities across Ontario,” Earth Day Canada president Jed Goldberg said of the $93,000 handed out. “These organizations continue to improve the state of the environment in ways that educate and galvanize the local community.” Any group of five or more people — it could be a family, school group, church group or environmental club — can take stewardship of a local watercourse. They are trained by Ontario Streams staff to do everything from cleaning up garbage to planting trees, bank stabilization and removing obstacles to fish habitats. Most of Ontario Streams’ funding comes from a provincial Trillium Grant and the group is always looking for more participants, Ms Silver said, but the main effect of the money will be providing better education and making participant groups more self-sufficient.

Ron Burrell (pictured) and business partner Ron Ryan took over Cook’s Bee Supplies in Aurora, which has catered to beekeepers since 1923. The store belonged to Aurora resident Jim Cook’s family since it opened almost 90 years ago.

Old-fashioned honey business still buzzing By Chris Traber

Other than personnel, not much has changed at Cook’s Bee Supplies since it was established on Aurora’s Edward Street in 1923. The original building exists, albeit with an addition. Former owner Jim Cook, whose father and grandfather were in the bee business, lives across the street in the house where he was born. The retired senior still drops by the shop to see how the new guys are doing. The public, business end of the shop is small. A wooden counter supports a phone and computer, the only hints of 21st-century technology. A plush toy bee hangs from the ceiling, turning silently in the heat. An antique rope-coiled skep (a beehive-shaped structure once used to house colonies) shares the shelves with bee motif collectables and the tools of the beekeeping trade — apiary starter kits, hats and protective netting, stainless steel collection vats, devices to emit smoke, honeycomb frames, industry magazines and how-to books. Cook’s is now owned by two Rons — Burrell and Ryan. Friends, beekeeping hobbyists and partners in the niche market supply enterprise, the men have long shared a fascination and respect for the indefatigable bee and its unher-

alded place in the food chain. “From the first time you uncover a bee hive, you realize theirs is an entire civilization on its own,” Mr. Burrell said. “They’re a wild swarm and they’ve built the combs perfectly and by themselves.” Their admiration for the creatures is immense. Honey bees are the main insects that make food for humans, they said. Flowering plants rely on pollinators, such as bees, for reproduction. Without bees, there would be dangerously low fruit and vegetable harvests. Bees have been around for some 30 million years, largely unchanged, blindly dedicated to their queen and colony, working themselves to death. East Gwillimbury’s Mr. Burrell and Toronto’s Mr. Ryan, decided to transform their hobby into a profession in 1994. Out of work, Mr. Burrell heeded his accountant’s advice and opted to take over Cook’s with Mr. Ryan. “We kept bees on the farm as a hobby and that kept us in touch with the community,” the droll 70-something, with a shock of luxuriant white hair said. “The business is a good fit.” The enterprise draws customers from all walks of life and corners of the GTA, Mr. Burrell said. It serves hobbyists, sideliners and people who love native bees and the honey, wax and royal jelly they produce. Commercial operations

Old School A periodic series on people who keep old-fashioned craftsmanship alive

with thousands of hives and millions of bees buy their gear in bulk elsewhere. The two Rons sell equipment and can source queen bees, drones, workers and “nucs” — the nucleus of a beehive where cells contain eggs that become the brood. The men dispense advice on how to counter recent problems, including colonies faltering due to pesticides, disease and mites. Of course, the shop also sells honey and coloured wax for candle craft. If you’re keen on keeping a bee colony, you have to ensure bylaws are observed. Most urban areas ban beekeeping due to liability. Once established with a starter package, nucleus and protective gear, you can farm the flying critters for about $500. “The biggest mistake people make is giving all the honey away,” Mr. Burrell said with a chortle. “Then they complain how expensive it is.” Mr. Ryan has been a bee devotee “since before Kennedy was assassinated”, he said, placing his passion to the early 1960s. He admires bees’ work ethic and loyalty and their colonies’ hierarchy.

“I like their intelligence,” he said. “Beekeeping is a tremendously fascinating experience.” While there are different species, there are three kinds of bees in a hive: queen, worker and drone, the men explained. Only the queen lays eggs, approximately 1,500 a day. She communicates with her hive with her own special scent, called pheromones. The worker bees are female and perform all the tasks in the hive, including cleaning, feeding babies and the queen, packing pollen and nectar into cells, building and repairing honeycombs, guarding and fanning to cool the hive. The workers also gather nectar and pollen from flowers. They’re also the only bees with stingers. The stingerless male bees are drones. While it doesn’t seem fair, their sole job is mating. Bee society balances the scales, the men said. In winter, to ensure survival, the workers execute many of the drones. People need to be vigilant when bees are present. If a hive loses a queen, the bees become distressed. If their space is threatened, they will defend. Mr. Burrell knows the ire of an angry swarm. He recalled a warm August day when he went to clean a hive. “All of a sudden, they were over me like Jack the Bear,” he recalled. Stung often, the bee’s venom

BEE FACTS 4Bees have two stomachs — one stomach for eating and the other for storing nectar collected from flowers or water so that they can carry it back to their hive. 4If a worker bee uses her stinger, she will die. 4Bees are classified as insects and they have six legs. 4Bees have five eyes — two compound eyes and three tiny ocelli eyes.

poisoned him. He suffered anaphylaxis, a severe, whole-body allergic reaction. He was rushed to the hospital. “About five kilometers down the road, I saw the light,” he said. “It was close.” He survived and has no ill will against the insects, just a heightened respect for the strength of their numbers. The men toil six days a week and worry about the bee supply industry. “As the older guys retire, fewer young folks are taking it up,” Mr. Burrell said.

PROVINCE: Local riding not listed among those affected by breach

York-Simcoe not impacted by Elections Ontario breach so far BY JOE FANTAUZZI

A review of the province’s elections agency is required in the aftermath of a privacy breach, Newmarket-Aurora MPP Frank Klees said. Mr. Klees’ riding is one of 49 named this week by Elections Ontario as potentially impacted by the breach, which involved voters’ personal information on USB keys that vanished at the end of April when two of the agency’s employees failed to secure them. York-Simcoe has so far not been named

among the ridings impacted. Mr. Klees plans to speak to his opposition caucus colleagues about introducing a motion to conduct the review, which he believes should examine Elections Ontario from top to bottom. “The fact is, this should never happen,” he said of the breach. “It’s a wake-up call for us. This is the last thing people should have to worry about when they go to cast a ballot.” Results of an investigation into the breach launched by the information and privacy commissioner’s office are expected to be released within several weeks. Elections Ontario is co-

operating with the investigation. In the last provincial election, a person recommended by Mr. Klees to be a returning officer refused to carry on due to what she believed was disorganization at Elections Ontario, he said. Every system is only as good as the people overseeing it, he added. Mr. Klees is also concerned Premier Dalton McGuinty will not take the issue seriously. “I will not be surprised if Dalton McGuinty shrugs his shoulders about this one as well,” he said. Mr. McGuinty was informed of the breach late Monday through a letter, the same way as the other political leaders, according to the premier’s office. He called the breach unfortunate and noted the government takes privacy matters very seriously while in Guelph Tuesday. Chief electoral officer Greg Essensa must assure this won’t happen again, he added. Meanwhile, the Elections Ontario employees linked to the data breach were let go, Mr. Essensa said during a news conference at Queen’s Park Tuesday. “I take this matter extremely seriously and I sincerely apologize to all Ontarians for any concern this notification may cause,” he said. The information on the USB keys was not encrypted, but can only be accessed in an “intelligible form” by Elections Ontario proprietary software or specialized commercial software, according to Elections Ontario.

Elections Ontario employees were working with copies of personal information from 49 of the province’s 107 ridings, the agency said. Work was completed on 20 to 25 of the 49 ridings, but Elections Ontario and forensic experts can’t confirm which of the 49 ridings are impacted. The privacy breach potentially impacts as many as 2.4 million people. The information includes full names, genders, birth dates, addresses, whether or not a person voted in the last provincial election and any other personal information updates voters provided to Elections Ontario during that period. It does not include how people voted, which is not monitored. The information does not include Social Insurance Numbers, health card, driver’s licence, credit or banking information, telephone numbers or e-mail addresses. While there is a potential for difficulty whenever personal information is released, thieves interested in stealing identities typically require more than what Elections Ontario said is contained on the missing USB drives, according to police. Elections Ontario has recommended residents in the potentially-impacted ridings monitor and verify their transaction statements from governments, banks and businesses for any suspicious activity. Mr. Essensa has ordered a review of policies and procedures and a review of Elections Ontario technology infrastructure, management policies and oversight.

The Tec-We-Gwill Women’s Institute is hosting a Thai Cooking Workshop on Saturday, July 28, 2012 at the WI Hall in Newton Robinson.

A flag-raising ceremony will be held in downtown Bradford next month to recognize the contributions of Canadian Peacekeepers. The hoisting of the United Nations flag will take place at 6 p.m. in front of the Bradford West Gwillimbury Court House and Council Chamber at 61 Holland St. E on Tuesday, Aug. 7. Mayor Doug White and members of council have proclaimed the week of Aug. 7 to Aug. 14 Peacekeepers Week to help highlight National Canadian Peacekeepers Day, which is observed Aug. 9. The ceremony comes in response to a request from the Canadian Association of Veterans in United Nations Peacekeeping to raise and fly the UN flag on Aug. 9 and every year thereafter. That date was chosen in memory of the nine Canadian Peacekeepers killed when their plane was shot down over Syria 38 years ago. That incident remains the largest loss of Canadian Peacekeepers in a single day. Among the dead were Cpl. B. K. Stringer and Warrant Officer C. B. Korejwo, both of whom resided in the area. Beyond that, the hope is that flying the UN colours will honour the memory of all those Canadians who have given their lives in the service of peace, including Bradford’s own Sapper Brian Collier, and all of the brave men and women currently on active duty in foreign lands.

Leo Francis Post January 9, 1943 - July 14, 2012 Leo has begun his new journey. He was welcomed home by his parents Mary and Gerald, brother Tom, grandparents Thomas and Mary, and William and Eleanor. Leo will be forever loved and missed by his brother Bill Post (Kay), and his sister Sharon Post. Leo's niece Barbara Kolterman (Post), her husband Jon and Leo's great-nephew, Tyler will remember Leo with great affection and smiles. Leo's nephew, Tommy Post will fondly think of Leo, and smile that little smile that so resembles his wonderful Uncle. Many, many friends will think of Leo whenever they hear an Elvis song. Our family has lost another ray of sunshine, which only means the skies will shine brighter. Many thanks to the wonderful staff and housemates of 404 Selby Crescent, Newmarket (Community Living Newmarket-Aurora District) for the friendships which bloomed over the years with Leo. Thank you to the amazing ICU staff at MacKenzie Richmond Hill Health (York Central Hospital), and especially to Dr. Szacky for keeping Leo as comfortable as they could the last few days. "Fly with the Angels and Sing with Elvis, Leo" We will always love you and think of you often... A Memorial Service will be held at the Roadhouse & Rose Funeral Home, 155 Main Street South, Newmarket on Thursday, July 19th at 1 p.m. In lieu of flowers, the family would appreciate donations made to: Community Living Newmarket-Aurora District, 757 Bogart Ave, Newmarket, Ontario L3Y 2A7.

U17 GIRLS BRADFORD EAGLES 2012 CAMBRIDGE HERITAGE TOURNAMENT CHAMPIONS This past weekend (July 7-8) the U17G Bradford Eagles won their division U17/U18 in the Cambridge Heritage Tournament. First game tied 0-0; 2nd game lost 2-1; 3rd game won 1-0; to place 2nd in their pool. They advanced to the semis with a win 2-1 over Cambridge United which sent them to the final game vs Stoney Creek. The final was a tough game with a tie of 0-0 at end of regulation time sending the girls to penalty kicks which was won by Bradford 4-2; our goalie Natalia Burgos made 2 oustanding saves earning her player of the game. Under oppressive heat, an injury ladened bench these young women fought through injuries with 1 sub on the bench and achieved the ultimate reward.

Stay tuned for more information in the coming weeks.

Congratulations to the team and coaches.
