SHANE MACDONALD shanemacdonald@simcoe.com The Simcoe County Mountain Bike Club is not afraid of the snow. Before, the white stuff would make bikers sad as it signalled the end of the traditional mountain biking season. Now, the snow brings excitement. Fat bikes, which are outfitted with larger tires ideal for riding in tough conditions like the snow, allow SCMBC members to keep riding all winter long. At the SCMBC trailhead located in Oro-Medonte, a group of fat bikers was enjoying a brisk winter day and some new snow before the New Year. "It’s just another flavour of cycling," SCMBC member Jason van Meijel explained. "It’s a totally different challenge." He says there has been a big increase in the number of people riding fat bikes in the last five years, and they are becoming very popular among cyclists. For van Meijel, the cycling season would often come to an end in the fall. He would have to put his bike on a training station and ride indoors during the winter months to get his fix. "I don’t think there is an off-season now," he said. To really enjoy the bikes, a groomed trail is needed. For the past three years, the SCMBC has been working during the winter to maintain the trails and groom them for fat bikers, snowshoers and anyone else who uses the trail system. The SCMBC uses snowmobiles that tow a device made out of irrigation tub-

They maintain over 100 km of single-track trails the rest of the year. The club’s groomers will be out at the trails all throughout the winter season to keep them maintained. "We have to be here as often as possible to keep the base down," Shawn Moreau, a groomer and member of the SCMBC, said, noting they come out as early as 6:30 a.m. to get to work. Moreau purchased a fat bike just as they were becoming popular about five years ago, and has been helping other people enjoy the activity ever since. "I bought it just to extend my season," he said. "I’ve never loaned my bike

to somebody that didn’t love it." The SCMBC has about 750 members, and it is estimated that over 100 make use of the trails in the winter with their fat bikes. Heather Stanley, an SCMBC board member, is one of those people. "It’s nice being out here," she said. "I love the view, it’s just so beautiful." Stanley says she is always smiling when she rides her bike, and now, like the cycling season, her opportunities to smile have been extended into the winter thanks to fat bikes. "I’m smiling constantly when I’m riding them," she said. Anyone interested in finding out more about fat biking or the SCMBC should visit scmbc.ca.

ABOUT US

As gracious hosts, let’s not disappoint Syrian families now For Syrian refugees who have come to Canada, 2016 was no doubt a year of adjustment and discovery. And for those who came in the first wave, a new reality is setting in with the start of a new year, when their federal living allowance came to an end. After 12 months, families stop receiving what could amount to $1,400 per month from the government. Many more refugees who settled in our communities will reach that milestone over the course of 2017. For those who have not secured employment, this year may bring some serious financial hardship. In a country that has openly embraced more than 35,500 Syrian refugees since November 2015, we can feel good about living in a place so willing to help those desperate and in need. Local groups, including Stouffville Cares, Bradford’s Refugee Inter-Denominational Group (BRIDG) and Georgina-East Gwillimbury Refugee Welcome, sponsored families. And many more residents, businesses, community organizations and churches offered their support to those families and other refugees who have begun to make their home in our towns and cities. The North American Shia Ithna Asheri Muslim Community Organization (NASIMCO) and the Jaffari Community Centre (JCC), for example, have organized and delivered hygiene kits to families awaiting permanent housing, prepared backpacks for 300 children going to school, delivered donated household items to families upon settlement and hosted a free dental screening and informative workshop session These people’s journey settling in our communities needs to stay front and centre for more than just the exciting first few months - particularly as that financial assistance reaches its expiration date. It has been inspiring to witness our communities step up to support and welcome their new neighbours and hear how refugees are adapting to living in a new country. We need to continue to offer support in various ways. Learning English is a major barrier for many. Perhaps people could offer English conversation clubs in their neighbourhood. Syrian children in new schools no doubt face an intimidating integration into their peers’ social circles. How can we help them make new friends? Many of the new families have spoken of the wonder and appreciation they felt being accepted so readily into this country. As time presses on, let’s not disappoint them now.

• LETTERS TO THE EDITOR • Timing of Liberals’ carbon tax couldn’t be worse Once again, I believe the Ontario government is putting ideology ahead of prosperity and employment for Ontarians. The shell game of capand-trade on carbon pricing for 2017 is just another tax grab in disguise to appease an environmentalist voting bloc, all with little to no help for the environment itself. With average household debt rising, the Liberals are raising taxes on driving to work, on heating our homes and getting the kids to activities. The cost of everything transported by road, rail, air or water will be increased. We are in for a period of inflation. The timing could not be

With the new U.S. president having no appetite for carbon taxes, Ontario and Canada in general will be at a disadvantage, and poorer thanks to provincial and federal Liberal policies. Politicians need to learn to compete for jobs that pay taxes. Imposing these carbon taxes on ourselves is like the home team not turning on the electric skate sharpener, because it is the right thing to do. Problem is, the American team, with sharp skates, wins easily and takes the two points. A few home team fans are happy

The reality is our biggest customer, The United States, is also our competitor for prosperous employment.

My name is Darla and I am one of Bradford’s newest (and cutest) residents, having just been adopted from the OSPCA in Newmarket this week. I am a female Shepherd/ Lab mix and I am just under a year old - still a puppy!!! but I have gotten really big in a few weeks. I have been enjoying settling into my new home, having found a nice place on the rug by the front door to relax, but also to make sure I am ready to go for a walk at any time! I have decided snow is awesome and I love it! My favourite thing is to stop mid-walk, roll around in it and bark at the snow that gets tossed around in the process. I have already made up my mind that I love my mum and I can’t wait to further explore the town with my new friend!

Parents disappointed with mall’s plans to close play area AMANDA PERSICO apersico@yrmg.com For many local parents, Upper Canada Mall was a one-stop shop - grab something to eat, shop and play. Soon, the popular play area in the retail destination will be removed. Recently, Upper Canada Mall posted a sign near the play park on the upper level, announcing the space will be relocated to the Ray Twinney Recreation Complex in the coming months. Some parents are calling this a huge loss for the community. "The mall is a onestop shop," said Bradford mom of three, Leslie Puiras. "We would make a day of it. Without the play area, the mall becomes an inconvenient place to shop." Puiras started an on-

line petition calling on Upper Canada Mall owners, Oxford Properties, to reconsider the move. In just more than 24 hours, the petition attracted close to 500 supporters. Many supporters call the play park a vital space in the community - a space children of various ages can enjoy and where mothers can nurse a baby while keeping a watchful eye on siblings. "There are plenty of venues dedicated to children, with kids activities and kids music, but the mall is an adult place with a kid’s space," Puiras said. Relocating the play area is part of the mall’s Target redevelopment plans, general manager Bri-Ann Stuart said. "This was a difficult decision," she said. "Our focus was to ensure the

community could continue to enjoy the space for free." The play park is being donated to the town, which will locate the park near the pool area of the Ray Twinney Recreation Complex. It will be named the Upper Canada Mall Play Park. "(The) mall is in the process of going under a significant renovation," said the town’s director of recreation and culture, Colin Service. "As a result, they will no longer be able to offer the indoor play area to the community." Hours of operation for the new location are still to be worked out by town staff. The mall’s owners plan to make an announcement in the coming weeks the redevelopment plans, which include other customer enhancements, initiatives and first-to-market

plans, Stuart said. While Stuart did not say what will replace the vacant Target space, she noted the redevelopment plans do not include a children’s play area. "We do not have a location suitable to house it," she said. Target opened its doors in the spring of 2013, then closed them for good two years later. Construction is set to start by the end of January, said Stuart, who was tight-lipped about details of the coming announcement. As part of the reconstruction project, the nursing rooms adjacent the Play Park will be moved to the lower level and the kids’ rides will also be removed to accommodate construction work, but will be returned.

12 COUNCIL

CONNECTION

Council wraps up another year in BWG As we come to 2017, and looking back on my first two years as mayor, I am reminded of what I said on the evening of my inauguration. That night, I outlined three key principles that should guide town council. First, council will be collaborative, consultative, respectful and transparent. Second, we will ensure we operate with the highest respect for your tax dollars. And third, council and staff will work hard on your behalf to enact an ambitious agenda to build a better town for all areas of town. I am pleased to say we are delivering on these three principles. We have hosted forums to engage artists and environmentalists in our town, and work with BWG Diversity to ensure an inclusive community that celebrates our diversity. We have an amazing 12 committees where we have local citizens involved in de-

ROB KEFFER velopment. They are hard at work to make a difference and taking the initiative to make positive change happen. I am also pleased and proud with the work we have done together to ensure taxes stay as low as possible while still investing to build a better town. Over the past two years, taxes have only gone up by 1.2 per cent. This year, the proposed increase is 1.9 per cent, one of the lower rates in the past decade. We’ve held the line on spending by being smart with where we spend, but

are still investing and building a better town for all parts of town. We are also tackling the big issues head on. Our Seniors’ Housing Community Improvement Plan is helping deliver a 150unit facility next to St John’s Church, which will create some 90 local jobs. We have other proposals for seniors and for affordable rental housing in the works. I am also impressed by what a difference our CIP has done to finally improve the downtown business area. Similarly, after years of big promises and no progress, we finally have an action plan to bring jobs to Highway 400. And, critically, we have united local mayors, York Region and Simcoe County to push for the Highway 400404 connecting link, formerly called the Bradford Bypass. We are using our combined influence to get this

critical infrastructure project back on the books at Queen’s Park. Jobs and commuting are two sides of the same coin, and we are working hard to address both. I am very excited about the new GO train service on weekends, with three trains to and from Toronto in the morning and evening. Finally, whether with plans for the new Henderson Park or investments in our tree canopy and parks, council has made great strides toward beautification and environmental protection. For the past two years, we have made a strong start and are tackling the important issues. We’re accessible, transparent and keeping taxes as low as possible. It is an honour to serve as mayor. I look forward to the new year with optimism. I wish you and your family all the best in 2017.

Coat drive results in warmer winter for 300 kids BREA BARTHOLET bbartholet@yrmg.com Hundreds of Bradford West Gwillimbury residents will have a warmer winter, thanks to the efforts of South Simcoe Police. The annual coat drive, which encourages the donation of gently used or new coats for those in need, garnered a total of 346 coats, handed over to BWG’s Coats for Kids organization. On Jan. 10, Special Constable

Elisabeth Aschwanden - a driving force behind the A Warmer Winter campaign brought in a large haul of coats to the Frederick Street location. "Last year we collected just under 300 coats in three months. This year, we’ve been able to exceed that. It really speaks to the kindness of others," she said. The police will continue to accept donations until March 1 at both the north and south divisions.

Bradford & East Gwillimbury got together for a minor hockey weekend to remember: the "Welcome to OUR HOUSE" event. The event had Bradford's Novice and Atom House Leagues playing a home-and-home series with EG's House Leagues. The action, and the experience, was incredible for players, parents and coaches. Cowbells and cheers echoed through arenas, hitting a whopping 107.4 decibels at the Novice Blue Dogs game in Bradford! Final tally on the weekend is BRADFORD 7 wins, EG 7 wins, 2 ties. Bradford West Gwillimbury Minor Hockey would like to extend a huge thank you to Chris Nesbitt and his team at EG minor hockey for jumping on board. This truly was a weekend to remember for our kids.
