Low income biggest barrier to better health, county says An inadequate income is the biggest barrier to a healthy diet, according to the Simcoe Muskoka District board of health. The results of the 2013 Nutritious Food Basket survey were released last week. A key finding was that nearly 10 per cent of Simcoe Muskoka households lack food security. Registered dietitian Jane Shrestha pointed out a local family of four on Ontario Works support would have just $163 left each month after paying for food and rent,

while a 35-year-old man on social assistance would be in the hole $241 every month after paying for food and rent. It’s a situation that leaves people cutting corners on food to pay other bills, and sometimes simply going hungry, she said. The survey is an annual assessment of low-income families’ housing expenses and food prices, collected by all health units in Ontario. It has been used in developing responses such as the Simcoe County Food and Agriculture Charter and other health equity strategies, said healthy living service director Joyce Fox.

Heidi Northover hosts a raffle for an autographed Orr My Story, an autobiography by Boston Bruins legend Bobby Orr. The raffle is part of a Bobby Orr memorabilia exhibition at the Bradford West Gwillimbury library until Feb. 10.

Canadian hockey icon to be feted with exhibition Bradford resident and library worker Heidi Northover invites Bobby Orr fans to come and check out her collection of the retired hockey player’s memorabilia. The Orr collection is on display at the Bradford Public Library, 425 Holland St. W., in front of the checkout desk. It was last on public display in 1991 at Bradford’s former library. The display consists of items collected by Ms Northover for more than 40 years, a passion that began when she was 11. There are autograghed photographs, trading cards, figurines, books and magazine and even a signed Boston Bruins Bobby Orr jersey, which the hockey icon signed when Ms Northover wore it at the Maple Leaf Gardens

in the early 1990s. Ms Northover’s favourite item in the display, however, is a pair of signed photographs of her and Mr. Orr that she had framed along with the envelope he used when he sent the photographs to her. “I happened to mail him the two pictures and, to my utter amazement, he mailed everything back signed,” she said. People who drop by the library will be able to fill out a raffle for a chance to win an autographed copy of Mr. Orr’s latest book, Orr My Story. The raffle will be drawn Feb. 10, the day the Bobby Orr display comes down. The display is viewable during library hours.

More impaired driving charges laid against man A Bradford man, who was scheduled to appear in court on a previous drunk driving charge, has been arrested on similar charges after another driver called police about a suspected impaired driver. South Simcoe Police said they received a call at about 8:30 p.m. last Friday about a vehicle being driven in an erratic manner on Holland Street West. Police pulled over a vehicle and a man was arrested and taken to the police station where a breathalyser test revealed his blood-alcohol level to be twice the legal limit. Police said the man was facing a similar charge from the OPP and was also disqualified from driving. The 50-year-old man is charged with driving over 80 mgs, impaired driving and driving while disqualified. His vehiclewas seized. You can help keep drunk drivers off the road by calling 911 if you suspect someone is impaired, police said. Police will ask you to provide your location, a description of the vehicle in question and its last known direction of travel.

Suspended driver nabbed in Bradford A 30-year-old Barrie man faces a charge of driving while under suspension after he was pulled over for speeding in Bradford. South Simcoe Police say an officer pulled the driver over on Holland Street West just after midnight Saturday.

South Simcoe Police remind you to clear all the snow from your vehicle before driving or you could face a $110 fine.

Clear all snow from car or you’ll face fine: police Squinting through a small opening in a frosted windshield is not only unsafe but illegal, South Simcoe Police warn, adding your shoddy job could net you a $110 fine. The police force and others across the province, including York Regional Police, remind you to clear all the snow off your vehicle before driving. The Highway Traffic Act requires you to have a clear view to the front and sides, as well as a clear view to the rear, either with use of side or rearview mirrors. Police warn that when you fail to remove all snow, ice and frost from your windshield, you put yourself and others at risk. Snow left on a vehicle will trail off the car making it harder for those behind

you to see. Ice, snow and dirt must also be removed from headlights and taillights. The law requires your vehicle to have sufficient light from your headlights that it can be seen 150 metres away and for you to see 110 metres in front. Taillights must also be visible to approaching vehicles from 150 metres away. Police ask you to warm up your cars to remove frost from windows. Additionally, you should remove snow from all surfaces of the car, which will ensure your windshield and windows will remain clear through the journey. Make sure your washer fluid is topped up.

OPINION

Bill to end wasteful ads from Ottawa good start

T

he way the federal Conservative government seems to approach some of its advertising spending reminds us what it must feel like to pay for a meal after you lose your appetite. Canadians, including the people of York Region, need to know about national programs that promote, for instance, public health initiatives or changes to employment insurance. But spending millions to advertise a program that has yet to launch and has hit bump after bump in the road to negotiating said plan with the provinces and territories is a bit fresh. The proposed Canada Job Grant, touted by the Tories in last October’s throne speech, is meant to help the most vulnerable people in our communities, workers who don’t qualify for employment insurance, have few skills or are poorly educated. Problem is, while it is supposed to launch April 1, Ottawa and the provinces and territories are nowhere near an agreement on exactly how it will roll out. Why the rush in advertising it then, you ask? That’s a good question and one to which Liberal MP David McGuinty is seeking an answer. Mr. McGuinty last October introduced a bill based on Ontario’s system that would have the Auditor General appoint an independent advertising commission to oversee government spending on advertising and pre-screen all advertisements. It is called the Elimination of Partisan Government Advertising Act and, in Mr. McGuinty’s words, would help prevent the spending of millions of dollars to advertise a program (such as the one described above) that doesn’t even exist, which, he said, is like flushing tax dollars down the toilet. We think this is an idea whose time has come, particularly when

NOW THAT YOU MENTION IT ...

EDITORIAL

ISSUE: Federal Conservative government advertises program not yet launched.

Publisher Ian Proudfoot

you consider the Conservative government is projected to spend about $1 billion on advertising by the end of next year. Here’s how the program could, theoretically, work. All advertisements and marketing campaigns, whether it be to raise awareness or deliver important information, would be screened before being released to the public by a panel set up by the auditor general. One of the key mandates of the panel would be to flag any project that appears to be partisan waste. That is, if a particular ad campaign appears to bolster support for the government of the day, and nothing more, then it gets the axe. We would suggest taking it a step further in that even before mega-bucks are doled out to agencies for its creative work in the first place, a comprehensive and strategic communications plan be put forward to the panel for evaluation and approval. Then and only then should any cash change hands. There’s no sense in closing the barn door after the horse has left. We’re quite certain you won’t pop the cork on the champagne bottle when you read that this new ad panel put a stop to the airing of a commercial that already cost taxpayers $250,000 to create, for example. There have been reforms on this file since the dark days of the sponsorship scandal with regards to strengthening oversight, transparency and accountability on how our government advertises and markets what it does, but as a former prime minister once noted in a victory speech: “The Canadian dream is not complete, there is work to do”.

BOTTOM LINE: Liberal MP is on right track to cut wasteful spending, but don’t stop there.

They should get a bus for the older people. It’ll take people to where they want to go quicker, so they don’t have to worry about waiting for a taxi or pay for it.

Transit would be nice because everything is moving up by Walmart. You can’t walk up there all the time. It takes forever. Especially with older people, they don’t want to walk that far. I don’t know if municipal government can control how much people charge for rent, but there could be more subsidized housing. There’s not enough,when there’s a two-year waiting list.

They could get a bus system. It’ll make it a lot easier to get around rather than everybody taking taxis.

people heading to work outside the hours of bus operation, through the taxi-to-GO and shared-ride taxi service. This service will allow commuters to pay a flat-rate fee for a taxi from designated stops to and from the GO train station, including commuter service to the GO station from Bond Head. The users of this service will need to register with Town Taxi, provider of the service, as it will not simply pick up riders who wait at a bus stop. The town is in the midst of negotiating a year long contract with Town Taxi for this service. The bus system will feature two low-floor, 26-foot buses with no steps that can seat about 19 passengers. They are similar in size to shuttle vehicles used by hotels and parking lots at airports, such as the Park N Fly. They can accommodate two wheelchairs and are equipped with accessibility ramps.

You can catch a local bus in Bradford May 1 unless there is some unforeseen change of plan, town manager Jay Currier told council Tuesday. The town’s bus system will start with two routes, one running back and forth along Holland Street and another that will circle Bradford. The routes will run from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., which is a recipe for failure for some elected officials who feel a majority of commuters’ hours fall before and after that time slot. Mayor Doug White, however, said the buses are primarily for senior citizens and those without vehicles who need to get to appointments and shopping centres. “This system, running 9 to 5, will meet the needs of that constituency,” he said. The mayor admitted the system won’t help students who need to get to class before 9 a.m. but said the town can assess the system’s efficiency in its infancy before making tweaks to its hours of operation. The service will also support

WRIGHT, Hazel Irene (nĂŠe Stokes) Passed away peacefully at River Glen Haven nursing home in Sutton on Friday, January 17, 2014 at 92 years of age. She was the loving mother of Faye Kearns and Dennis (Marlene) Wright. Beloved and cherished "Nana" of Carolyn (Jeff) Butterworth, Crystal (Tim) Ellis, Sarah Wright (Adam) and Kristen Wright. Proud great grandmother of Zachary and Lauren Butterworth, Paige, Campbell and Bronte Ellis, and Brooklynn Vito. Predeceased by her brothers, Harry and Don. Hazel was born in Reist, Alberta on November 12, 1921 and then moved to Ontario in her mid teens. She raised her family on a farm at the Doane Road and 2nd Concession in East Gwillimbury. She worked at Sears for many years in both the customer accounts and catalogue departments. While there, she developed life-long friendships with many of her co-workers. She was also a life time m e m b e r o f t h e S h a r o n Wo m e n ' s Institute and thoroughly enjoyed their get-togethers. Once retired from Sears, she moved to her little log cabin in Keswick where she could focus on her hobbies, go to garage sales, plant her flower gardens, enjoy the birds, work on her photo albums, watch Blue Jays games, write letters to friends in Florida and Alberta and host card games, lunches and dinners with her friends. More than anything though, Hazel loved being with her f a m i l y. B i r t h d a y p a r t i e s , h o l i d a y dinners and just going out to Tim Horton's for coffee and a Boston cream doughnut were events that she greatly cherished. As per her wishes, there will be no funeral service or visitation. Cremation has taken place and interment will take place in the spring at Newmarket Cemetery. Thank you to Roadhouse & Rose Funeral Home for making these arrangements. Her family would also like to thank the nurses, PSWs and all of the other staff on the 3rd floor at River Glen Haven for their exemplary care, compassion and thoughtfulness. If desired, donations in her memory may be made to the CNIB or CHATS. On-line condolences may be made at www.roadhouseandrose.com
