Teachers across Simcoe County showed up to work dressed in black Wednesday morning to protest and mourn the loss of their collective bargaining rights. On Tuesday, the provincial legislature voted 82 to 15 to pass Bill 115 that allows the government to impose a contract on teachers that freezes wages for at least two years, reduces sick days and halts grid increases. Late Tuesday afternoon and into the evening, dozens of public school elementary and secondary union representatives gathered at the office of District 17 of the Ontario Secondary Schools Teachers’ Federation at 63 Collier St. in Barrie. Ian Tudor, president of District 17, said high school teachers are being asked by their union to give up participating in extra-curricular activities only on Wednesdays See page 12.

Town gives soccer club ultimatum BY SEAN PEARCE

spearce@thetopic.ca

Citing more than $22,000 in unpaid fees, the Town of Bradford West Gwillimbury has issued an ultimatum to the Bradford Soccer Club. In a press release issued Tuesday, the town said it had met with the club on a number of occasions to discuss the latter’s inability to meet its financial contributions for the 2012 outdoor

season and the outstanding balance of more than $22,000. Beyond that, the town also indicates that the club has not paid its player registration fees with the Huronia District Soccer Association, estimated to be about $30,000, and owes the Bradford Sports Dome in excess of $55,000. Given all of that, the town says it will not grant

‘I am thrilled, overwhelmed and the kids are so happy. We have been driving by the site during the past month two to three times a week in hopes that one day it would be ours.’

Thursday, Sept. 13, 2012

“A new home and new life,” is a message written beneath an outside wall of a new Habitat for Humanity home in Georgina. Stephanie MacPhail wrote those words after being notified a few weeks ago she and her two children were awarded the second semi-detached Habitat home being constructed on Robert Street in Keswick. “I’ve just been on cloud nine ever since we got the news we were accepted,” says Ms MacPhail.

If you’d like to help, volunteers can work on the site as individuals or with their companies through Habitat’s Adopt-A-Day sponsorship program. You must be able to lift and haul items between 15 to 30 lbs, wear CSA-approved footwear, and be available from 7:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. To become a volunteer, complete a volunteer application and e-mail it to customerservice@habitatyork.ca or fax it to 905-868-8724. For more info, contact the Habitat York Region office, which also serves Bradford, at 905-868-8722.

Teacher job action won’t change deal ISSUE: Unions want teacher members to stop voluntary school activities in protest of Liberal bill

A

s the first day of school approached, we were inundated with messages from teachers unions criticizing the provincial government’s pledge to give itself the power to impose contracts and ban strikes for the next two years. The unions insisted the move by the government would end up negatively impacting students. It turns out it was the unions that made that prediction come true. On the day the Progressive Conservatives supported the minority Liberals’ bill, teacher unions announced extracurricular activities for students would be curbed. What happened to ensuring students wouldn’t become pawns in this fight? Actually, there really is no fight. The move has been made. The bill received support and was passed. There’s no reason to believe it will be rescinded, so what’s the point of union leaders asking public school teachers to stop giving their time outside of classroom hours? What was the point of yesterday’s expected one-day protest by high school teachers? And what’s the point of Elementary Teachers Federation of Ontario president Sam Hammond announcing he’s not going to put a time limit on work action? How is this protecting students? Sadly, it’s not just students who lose out. Teachers certainly don’t have to take part in extracurricular activities, because there’s no debating they take place outside of a teacher’s

regular hours of work. But those who do put in the extra hours do so because they want to; because they love doing it. Now, as they’re being mandated by their unions to stop, they’re pawns, too. That will hurt those teachers who are there for all the right reasons.

Whether or not you agree with the bill, deemed necessary because school unions didn’t accept a deal three other teachers unions signed, there comes a time when you have to accept your fate. Whether or not you agree with the province’s bill, which was deemed necessary because the public school unions didn’t accept a deal three other teachers unions signed, there comes a time when you have to accept your fate. The province’s hardball offer was good enough for three other teachers unions, so it should be good enough for the holdouts, too. It’s hypocritical of the unions to say their moves are made to protect students when they’re willing to hold them hostage to get what they want. Chalk this one up as a loss, after several deals that can only be considered clear-cut victories, and get back to providing students with the best all-around education possible.

BOTTOM LINE: Job action will only hurt students and teachers and won’t change the deal. Canadian Circulations Audit Board Member

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

Soccer club should pay back all the money it owes families Re: Soccer club should refund all money if no team formed, letter to the editor by Carol Wright, Sept. 6. After numerous calls and e-mails to the Bradford Soccer Club with no response, I, too, am angry and upset at the lack of follow through and business ethics such as replying to the customer, addressing her concerns and allowing her to speak with the head of the organization; all of which was not done. I was both professional and kind in my initial call to the club but, upon trying to call and e-mail weeks later, time and time again, my queries were ignored. I, too, had signed up my daughter for the U-16 girls and withdrew her due to a knee injury prior to the announcement by the club there would not be “official” teams. I was told over the phone that I would receive $160 out of the $190 fee back, which I thought was reasonable, only to find out through a standard letter to all families that they were only willing to provide a $95 credit toward the next year. Really? My daughter didn’t even play. After my experience, I don’t want my daughter to play for a league that not only lacks truth to what its tells its customers, but I do not want to be affiliated with a league

that lacks a sense of customer service and ethics. I suspect there are numerous families like mine who are in a similar position as per the letter that was sent out. My eldest daughter will not return to this league. She will go elsewhere. I’d rather pay more money and drive farther to know that we will get what we pay for. The only good parts of the league are the wonderful coaches who donate their time and the children who benefit from their leadership. I think it is so disappointing to have to go to this level for our voice to be heard when there was simple solution in the first place. This $95 credit is unacceptable. I want all my money back.

End of dome contract ‘best thing that could happen’: BSC president the club access to its fields unless the current board of directors is replaced and the new board prepares a financial plan to address the current outstanding debt owed to the municipality. It also demands that the new board put together a sound operating plan for the 2013 season and beyond and states that it is the general membership’s role to help right the ship with assistance from the town, if necessary. “The town, in a discussion with the Huronia District Soccer Association, was advised that failure to pay the player registration fees for 2012 may result in the Bradford club not being able to field competitive/travel teams for the 2013 season,” the release stated. “Town council is prepared to take the necessary steps to ensure the children in Bradford West Gwillimbury are able to participate in a full soccer program in 2013.” Dome owner Terry Redvers said he’s glad the town is taking action on the matter. The club, under its current leadership, is fraught with what he described as mismanagement and needs a clean slate not to mention an examination of its finances. “This is what we hoped would happen, because they need to remove the current board and start fresh,” he said. “They collected the money (owed), so it’s not like we’re asking for money they didn’t get. “I’m not too happy.” It’s a sad state of affairs, Mr. Redvers continued, explaining he was invited by the town

Soccer Club”. Mr. Redvers argues that the club knew what it was agreeing to when it signed the contract. “The soccer club knew how this worked from the very beginning,” he said. “They could have all of the time they wanted, but we needed a commitment of 50 hours, at minimum, to make this viable and they have tried to renege since day one. “There are bigger issues here. Enough is enough.” Another issue, according to Mr. Gibson, is the manner in which the town charges for the use of its fields. Most municipalities charge by the hour, while Bradford charges the club a per-player fee, he said. The town’s release notes that the club has been charged a fee for the use of the soccer fields on a per registrant basis since 2003. The 2003 fee was $14 per player, but has slowly risen over the past nine years to $21 per registrant. The club’s current player registration fee is $190. The current level of service provided for turf maintenance includes aeration, top dressing, fertilizing, grass cutting and other maintenance, the town said, adding it also provides parking, garbage pickup and removal, portable washrooms, irrigation and various repairs. The intent of such fees is to partially offset the cost of providing the town’s various amenities and services, the statement continues. “The remainder of the operating cost is borne by the property tax base,” the release

noted. Cost recovery for use of recreational facilities by community sports groups is common in all municipalities and the percentage of cost recovery in Bradford West Gwillimbury is comparable to other surrounding municipalities.” Not so, Mr. Gibson said, explaining that the fees charged in Richmond Hill and Aurora are about $9 per hour, while those in Newmarket are somewhat higher. This year, the Bradford Soccer Club had just more than 1,000 registrants and used about 350 hours of field time, so it’s not hard to see why an hourly fee, even at $20 per hour, would be preferable to the current $21 per player model, he said. More than anything else, Mr. Gibson said he is disappointed that the town hasn’t been more willing to work with the club toward settling the past due amounts and mediating the ongoing dispute with the soccer dome. The organization is gearing up for fall and would be able to pay the end of October, he said, adding his attempts to delegate to council have been unsuccessful. That being said, Mr. Gibson acknowledges that money is owed, although he suggests that the figure owed to the Huronia District Soccer Association may not be as high as has been presented by the town. “We are behind with all of that,” he said. “I can’t dodge the bullet there.” In any event, Mr. Gibson said he plans to step aside, for now, and allow the club’s vice president to handle the matter for the time being. He stressed that the club is working to pay off its debt and is investigating applying for a line of credit and a Trillium grant.

to build a dome a few years ago, as he’d done successfully in other municipalities, and has gotten nothing but hassles from the local soccer club almost from the get go. The $55,000 now owed is on top of another shortfall that was “forgiven” in the first year, he said, adding he’d actually be entitled to about $100,000 if he applied the contract to the letter. As it is, he plans to launch legal action to recover the outstanding funds. Bradford Soccer Club president Leon Gibson rejects Mr. Redvers’ characterization of the situation. He blames the contract with the Bradford Sports Dome for many of the club’s current financial woes. The organization is obligated for 50 hours per week at the dome, at a cost of $145 per hour, whether it uses it or not, Mr. Gibson said, adding the sudden collapse of two programs last year was due to some personnel issues was an unforeseen hit to the club’s finances. With the club on the hook for dome time it was receiving no revenue for, the organization did its best to meet its commitments in the hopes it could offset the losses with revenues from the season just past, Mr. Gibson said. The recovery is just taking longer than anticipated, he said. “This club is too small to shoulder the burden,” he said. “In two years, we’ve paid the dome about $410,000.” Mr. Gibson also alleged that the sports dome has not lived up to all of its contractual obligations and suggested that the contract being rendered null and void would be “the best thing to ever happen to the Bradford

GOVERNMENT: The 5th Sideroad bridge is next up for replacement

Councillors, staff, board members mark official re-opening of 5th Line bridge BY SEAN PEARCE

spearce@thetopic.ca

Better late than never. Bradford West Gwillimbury Councillors, town staff and members of the Holland Marsh Drainage System Joint Municipal Services Board gathered on the 5th Line/Doane Bridge Tuesday afternoon to toast the official re-opening of the structure, which was completed back in the spring. Ward 3 Councillor Gary Lamb joked that the delay in holding the ceremony was to determine whether or not the bridge was necessary. “We had a soft opening to see if it was

worth keeping,” he quipped. HMDSJMSB chairperson Daniel Sopuch pointed out that the new bridge is part of the $26.4-million canal reconstruction project and is one of five bridges - two in Bradford and three in King - slated for replacement. The bridge at 5th Sideroad and Canal Road is next up for re-construction, at an estimated cost of $1.3 million, and will close this fall and re-open by the spring of 2013 if all goes to plan. “(The canal) will be wider and higher when the work is finished,” Mr. Sopuch said. “It will be well-suited to handle a 50-year storm event.”

They’re here to help you! Family Dentist By: Dr. Justin Chow & Dr. Matthias Yeh Do sports guards provide protection from bruising and laceration of the soft tissues of the mouth. A mouthguard can help to minimize the amount of soft tissue damage that is caused by a traumatic event. A forceful blow can press a person’s lips or cheeks against teeth, dental work, or dental appliances in a fashion where they become pierced or torn. The violent jaw movements created by a blow or collision can result in a biting laceration of the lips, cheeks, or tongue. Mouthguards can act as a buffer between the soft and hard tissues of the mouth. The rounded contours of a guard can help to protect soft tissues. The spongy resilience of a guard can possibly help to buffer or cushion the effects of a blow. Sports guards can help to minimize soft tissue injury created by dental appliances. The lips and cheeks of those athletes that wear braces (orthodontic appliances) can certainly benefit from the protection a mouthguard. Also, the way the interior contours of a customized mouthguard will fit into those regions where teeth are missing makes it possible that a sports participant can leave their removable partial denture out during practice or games yet still have adequate support for their teeth. A removable partial denture could be dislodged during a traumatic event, resulting in tissue laceration or loss of or damage to the appliance itself.

Thursday, Sept. 13, 2012

Last week marked the start of another school year and, with it, came a reminder from South Simcoe Police to drive safely especially near schools. It seems not everyone got the message. To coincide with the resumption of classes, South Simcoe Police launched Operation School Smart and increased their presence in school zones throughout Bradford and Innisfil to promote traffic and pedestrian safety. As part of the campaign, officers enforced school zone speed limits, as well as the laws requiring drivers to stop for pedestrians in crosswalks and school crossing guards. Beyond that, officers kept an eye out for distracted drivers and those motorists whose poor driving habits put pedestrians at risk. Police also worked with local bylaw enforcement officers to help alleviate traffic congestion caused by illegally parked vehicles. As of Friday, officers have laid a total of 144 charges including one that resulted in a roadside vehicle seizure. Some of the more serious infractions were: -Driving while prohibited under the Criminal Code of Canada. -Driving while suspended and with no insurance. -A dump truck running through a red light at a school crosswalk with children waiting to cross the road on the first day of school. -A collision where a vehicle hit a school bus with children on board during a foggy

morning. • A vehicle traveling 48 km/h over the posted speed limit in a school zone. The 76-year-old driver now faces a $684 fine and four demerit points. In response, police are again issuing the following reminders to motorists: • Slow down and be patient in school zones. Most school zones in Bradford and Innisfil are designated as Community Safety Zones meaning fines are doubled. • Obey all parking and traffic regulations. Parking vehicles in a no parking zone or near corners and crosswalks obstructs visibility. • Parents and caregivers must follow school rules when it comes to dropping off and picking up students. • Do not obstruct school bus loading zones. • Cross the street at a crosswalk of traffic lights; never cross mid-block. • Know the laws in regards to passenger safety, i.e., one seatbelt per person. • Red overhead lights accompanied by a stop arm on school buses means the bus is stopped to load or unload students. Drivers are required to stop in both directions until these lights turn off. • If your child rides a school bus, have them learn and practice the safety rules for waiting at the bus stop, getting on and off the bus and riding the bus. Police say they are determined to continue with the safety initiative and plan to have an increased presence in the school areas over the course of the school year.

PUBLIC SAFETY: Man flown to hospital following accident

Ministry of Labour investigating latest workplace accident BY SEAN PEARCE

spearce@thetopic.ca

The Ontario Ministry of Labour has been called in to investigate an industrial accident that occurred in Bradford Wednesday. Just after 11 a.m., emergency personnel rushed to an address on Holland Street West in

response to a call that a man, believed to be in his 40s, had fallen off a roof while working at a private residence. The injured man was airlifted by an ORNGE helicopter to hospital. Police are also investigating the incident. Wednesday’s accident comes just days after a fatal incident at a private work yard in Schomberg

claimed the life of a 78-year-old man. According to police, the accident occurred at approximately 5:15 p.m. Monday when the worker, 78, got off of the bulldozer he was operating to help a dump truck back up. It appears the dump truck driver lost sight of the worker and accidentally backed into him. The man was rushed to hospital where he

was pronounced dead. His name is being withheld pending notification of next of kin who reside outside of the province, police said. South Simcoe Police, the coroner and the Ministry of Labour are currently investigating. A team of collision reconstructionists, a forensic identification officer and a commercial motor vehicle inspector were on scene to conduct a technical investigation to determine precisely what happened. The Ministry of Labour is conducting a parallel investigation into the workplace accident. A post-mortem was scheduled to take place this week. Anyone with information is asked to contact Const. Carl Jarvis from the traffic & marine unit at 905-7753311.

A Tuesday morning fire that destroyed a truck next to a home on Keele Street in the Holland Marsh is being treated as suspicious by authorities. The blaze broke out at approximately 1 a.m. and brought out fire crews from both Bradford West Gwillimbury and King Township. “It came into us as a structural fire,” Bradford West Gwillimbury Fire Chief Kevin Gallant said. “Prior to us getting the call, King

Fire was also notified and were already on scene when we arrived.” In addition to the truck, some overhead wiring was also damaged due to the fire, Chief Gallant said. The home, however, was not harmed. At this point in time, the cause of the fire is under investigation and it is being treated as suspicious by authorities. York Regional Police maintained a presence on the property for much of Tuesday in order to keep the scene secured. There were no further details available yesterday on the matter.

EDUCATION: “McGuinty Mondays” to start next week

Union urging elementary teachers to ‘press the pause button’ on activities From page 1.

commencing Sept. 12. “We’ve also asked our members to wear black clothing or wear black armbands in response to the passing of Bill 115 on Tuesday,” Mr. Tudor said. Elementary teachers are being urged by their leadership to “press the pause button” when it comes to participating in before or after school activities.

‘We will attempt to go through the Ontario Labour Relations Act (to challenge the government’s legislation). This has changed the landscape of collective bargaining.’ -Ian Tudor

president, District 17, OSSTF

Sam Hammond, president of the Elementary Teachers’ Federation of Ontario (EFTO) said his 76,000 members are being asked, “to take a pause in any volunteer activities they are now doing and focus on students in the classroom”. Premier Dalton McGuinty initiated Bill 115 to battle Ontario’s $15 billion deficit, gaining the support of the Conservatives in the process.

EFTO members will begin “McGuinty Mondays” next week, refraining from attending any meetings within the school system. “I’m not setting a time limit on it,” Mr. Hammond said. The elementary teachers are also being encouraged to show up for work no earlier than 30 minutes before the start of the school day or leave more than 30 minutes after the end of the day. “We will attempt to go through the Ontario Labour Relations Act (to challenge the government’s legislation),” Mr. Tudor said. “This has changed the landscape of collective bargaining.” Karen Littlewood, first vice president of District 17, said, “I’m very disappointed the Liberal government has taken this path to remove collective bargaining and strip our collective agreement. “We want to be able to negotiate locally with our school boards. It’s an issue between us and our employer, the Simcoe County District School Board.” Teacher unions are expected to protest outside MPP offices across the county on Friday, Sept. 14. They are reaching out to other unions to have them demonstrate their support on STAFF PHOTO/BRUCE HAIN Friday as well. Ms Littlewood said she will be part of Karen Littlewood, Larry Lemay and Ian Tudor of the Ontario Secondary Schools Teachers’ a large contingent demonstrating outside Education Minister Laurel Broten’s office on Federation are encouraging their members to wear black Wednesdays as a symbol of their displeasure over the passage of Bill 115, which freezes wages and curtails bargaining rights.

BRADFORD SCHOOL OF DANCE The Bradford School of Dance was founded on the principle that good training leads to strong, educated dancers. Not all students have the same goals for their dance training but the basic fundamentals apply to all students; sound technical training, taught by working professional instructors in a warm and friendly environment. Ms. Jane Pound, the studio’s Artistic Director plays an active role in the training and development of all the students enrolled at the school. As a former ballerina in the National Ballet of Canada, Ms Pound has the knowledge of what it takes to become a professional dancer. Ms. Pound’s success in the dance world extends beyond the Bradford School of Dance. She has also taught the art of ballet to national and Olympic level gymnasts and figure skaters. Many of our students have continued into the professional world of dance, stage and film. Coaching and mentoring teachers is another of Ms.Pound’s passions; “these young teachers are the next generation, my generation must take care to pass on the technique accurately and

with high standards”. Ms Pound also is a ballet examiner and travels through out Canada adjudicating students in ballet. She holds the prestigious position of Chairman of the Society of Russian Ballet in Canada . The program and instructors are the real strength of the school and extend to all forms of dance. The Street Style program at BSD is one such class. Students learn dance steps and sequences from such “in demand” instructors/choreographers such as Michel Issa Rubio, Kwame “Sol” Mensah and Miss Jordan Clark. Jordan Clark was the 2012 Winner of “So You Think You Can Dance, Canada , and a former student of Jane Pound. The parents and students at BSD also praise instructors such as Miss Vanessa Crutchley, Miss Katherine Mascarin and Miss Alex Farr for their kind approach and friendly manner. More senior and competitive students work with award winning choreographers Miss CaitlinDi Cristoforo and Miss Jeannine Clayton. The junior school division has talented and specialized

instructors, Miss Holly Muncey, Miss Glynnis DuBois and Ms. Miranda DuBois; they all bring their knowledge of early child education, health studies and dance technique to their classes. All lessons are conducted in Bradford ’s largest dance studio, a beautiful, state of the art facility overseen by our Director of Operations, Miss Hilary Burrell. Ms. Burrell works tirelessly to make sure the studio is run efficiently and well organized. Miss Burrell also teaches and choreographs all levels of dance and works with our more dedicated students in the Intensive training program. The Bradford School of Dance is the premiere dance studio in Bradford whether the student is a beginner or a professional. The studio is located at 100 Dissette Street , Unit 6, in Bradford with ample free parking. Fall programs do fill quickly so if you are interested in dance classes or further information, call 905-778-8686 to start your child’s training in the wonderful world of dance.

Memoriam

Memoriam

GIOVANNI IOCCO Jan.. 21, 1928 – Sept. 13, 2011 DAD As we open our eyes to greet the day, We think of you and begin to pray. A year ago today God saw you were in pain, So He wrapped his arms around you and took you away. As we remember your laughter, your smile and your face, We have comfort in knowing you are in a much better place. As we carry on and face each day, The memories of you will never fade away! Your loving family

Memoriam

In loving memory of Frederick Silas Sheard March 1, 1937 - September 11, 2010 We thought of you with love today But that was nothing new, We thought about you yesterday And days before that too. We think of you in silence And often speak your name, All we have are memories And your picture in a frame. Your memory is our keepsake With which we'll never part, God has you in his keeping We have you in our hearts. We can't believe it's been two years. Love always, your wife Shirley & family

DIAMOND, Harry F. In loving memory of a dear husband, father, grandfather and great grandfather March, 9, 1934- September 14, 2007 Beautiful memories are wonderful things They last til the longest day They never wear out, they never get lost And can never be given away To some you may be forgotten To others a part of the past To us who loved you and lost you Your memory will always last. Sadly missed and always remembered, love your family.
