At roughly 1,000 supporters each, the March 31 final battle between MPP Norm Sterling and Jack MacLaren is proving to be as exciting as any provincial election. The two have campaigned for several months for the right to represent the Progressive Conservative party in the riding of Carleton-Mississippi Mills in the lead-up to Ontario’s 40th general election on Oct. 6. Sterling, a centrist, is the elder statesman with 33 years experience in provincial politics. MacLaren, on the right side of the party, is a former president of the Ontario Landowners’ Association and a farmer and engineer living in MacLaren’s Landing. The campaign has been feisty, with some calling exposure of internal party politics a sign of a “robust democracy” and others calling it a fight that threatens to split the party to its core. Sterling counters the charge he is a career politician by talking up his days as a lawyer. Some say Sterling doesn’t do enough to solve constituents’ issues; he insists he has “helped a lot of people.” MacLaren answers every challenge to his libertarian values with assertions that today’s governments lack the moderate, middle-way they once held.

Blakeney farming family honoured DESMOND DEVOY

desmond.devoy@metroland.com

BLAKENEY – An area farm couple has donated their $200 winnings in a province-wide competition to the Hub. “They were really good to us when our house burned down in 2000,” said Shelley McPhail. “Then, someone in our own community can benefit.” The McPhails won the money in a competition sponsored by the Ontario Rural Institute to identify one thing they would

do to make their rural community an even better place to live. Shelley and her husband Harold entered with an idea that they first tried out in their fields in 2009, when they started labelling their roadside crops with signs identifying the crop and its outcome. The couple grew canola on their property for the first time that year, and wanted to let people become aware of what it was they were planting, and that it could be made into vegetable oil.

Carleton Place seminar examines links between European and Aboriginal Canadians BY DESMOND DEVOY desmond.devoy@metroland.com

CARLETON PLACE – We may live in Canada, but we also live in the Algonquin First Nation territory. That’s because the Algonquins never signed a treaty with any European nations, and so the land upon which we sit here in eastern Ontario remains unceded. Those and other facts about the historic relationship between European settlers and Canada’s First Nations peoples will be to the fore during a special presentation on the sometimes fraught relationship between both peoples. “The history of aboriginal people and non-aboriginal people is not something everyone knows,” said organizer Tracey Paetzold of the Social Concerns Committee of Carleton Place. “Information that night might not be information we all know about.”

In order to help educate the public on this historic relationship, Ed Bianchi, an aboriginal rights project co-ordinator with the non-governmental organization Kairos, will speak at the Nation-to-Nation, event at St. Gregory’s Catholic Elementary School, 176 Town Line Rd. W. in Carleton Place on Monday, March 28, at 7 p.m. Paetzold noted that, growing up, she was told next to nothing about Canada’s First Nations peoples or their plight. “I’m embarrassed,” she said. “Growing up I didn’t hear about residential schools…I didn’t know about it until six years ago when I went up north,” to Weagamow Lake, north of Red Lake, Ont., to help out with that First Nations fly-in community. Even within her own family, Paetzold notes that non-aboriginal Canadians are only now starting to see the light on these issues. “My dad thinks it was hundreds of years ago,” she said

taken aback,” when he heard of the suffering that the First Nations people went through, as they lost contact with their traditions, language and family. Even after the last residential school closed, parents are being separated from their children, but for different reasons. “There are more aboriginal kids being taken off of reserves than they were at the height of the residential schools (period),” said Paetzold. “Instead of putting money back in to the reserves, they are taking people off of the reserves…The government did say, ‘Don’t worry, we’ll look after you.’” Paetzold said children were removed by authorities because of poverty issues like overcrowded housing, and a lack of drinking water infrastructure. “Many reserves don’t have clean water,” said Paetzold. “We take that for granted. The First Peoples lead a challenging life. It’s not fair. First Peoples in Canada really need our support.”

The unconventional hockey family

Majority of CP Canadians hockey players live away from home as billets BY BRIER DODGE brier.dodge@metroland.com

On a typical Thursday evening, Melanie Anderson likes to stay in her room, far away from Jersey Shore. But as a billet mom for the Carleton Place Canadians, she welcomes the 15 or so boys into her basement – their home away from home – for the regular tradition. And if it’s not Jersey Shore, it’s hockey games, poker nights and as it is playoff season, mullet shaving and hair dying at the Anderson household. Anderson and husband Rob host two players in their home for the season, Tanner Hildebrandt of St. Catharines, Ont. and Mike Mezzano of Woodbury, Minnesota. Hildebrandt said, compared to other teams, the billet families in Carleton Place are great – especially his own, he added. Anderson said since her husband Rob and herself are at the age where most of their friends have teenage children, they just jumped right in and went straight to having teenagers. The couple was approached by friend Jason Clarke – Canadians coach – last year in their inaugural season to host a player. “He’s the hockey dad, and I’m the billet mom,” Anderson said of husband Rob, who she estimated makes it to 95 per cent of the Canadians’ games. Billets are players who play locally, but don’t live in the area. Current players on the Canadians come from as far away as Minnesota and Newfoundland. Since

junior players are usually too young to live alone, billet families are required to house and feed players, and take on the role of temporary parents. Hildebrandt said billet families mean a lot to the Canadians and they allow the team to bring in talented players from outside the area. He said he doesn’t think people realize how important they are to the organization and how much they do for the players. The Canadians themselves have a higher than normal number of billeted players - with about 15, said billet co-ordinator Crystal Warywoda. One of her billeted players, Charlie Millen, said it has helped the team bond because so many of the players are living away from home. It’s created a different atmosphere than other teams, one he said he enjoys. Warywoda hosts two billets, after a last-minute trade landed Millen in Carleton Place. There were no more available families, but teammate Nik Pascoal was quick to offer to share his space with Millen. More billet families are needed in Carleton Place, Warywoda said, because so many players are from out of town. The team is currently short on billet families, which is why her family and the Andersons are doubling up. This means that for Dave and Liane Phillips, a family dinner has grown significantly. They are the transitional house for players who are traded or need a place for a few days. As well as their four children – one of whom, Kyle, plays for the Canadians

– they have one permanent billet and up to four temporary billets at a time. This means family dinners can be significantly larger than the average house. “If you’re going to cook for one it’s just a matter of making bigger portions,” said Dave. The commitments of being a billet family include providing food for the host player, a bedroom – and making sure rules such as curfew are enforced. Players are responsible for their own transportation to and from practice. Billet families are paid $300 a month in room and board and given season tickets to all of the home games. Also, families can request temporary housing for players if they go out of town or on vacation, so having a billet doesn’t prevent them from taking vacation or going out of town. “It can be rewarding and it adds some excitement to your day,” said Phillips. “I think that it’s not as big of a deal because the boys can be fairly independent and not hard to please. You don’t have to babysit them.” Warywoda said the families in Carleton Place are amazing and haven’t needed any help on the guidelines. In fact, she said families are “going above and beyond what we could ever encourage.” Melanie said last year they hosted not just their billet player, but even his parents and grandparents when they came to visit and cheer for the team. “It was like getting this huge extended family,” she said. “My billet family is very supportive and behind us every step of the way like

a real family. They try to be as much of my family as they can,” Hildebrandt said. He said it was important to get a good atmosphere and that his billet family always makes sure to keep him well fed. Melanie said the biggest misconception about being a billet parent is that you have to know hockey. You don’t need to have hockey knowledge in order to support the boys or be a fan of the team. Some players need more ground rules established than others to get into a routine that fits with their hockey career and billet family’s lifestyle. It’s not always easy though. Billet players don’t return to the same team every year, and can be traded to a different team at the drop of a hat. Having a billet player transferred is the hardest part of becoming a billet family, Melanie said. She got attached to her billet last year, who was then traded away. Last year, Zach Allen of Kingston, Ont. boarded with Warywoda’s family. Warywoda said they still keep in touch with him, and he has inspired her young son Joey to some day play for the Kingston Frontenacs. That way, he can board with the Allen family when it becomes his turn to switch from a billet brother, to a billet himself. “The boys have goals and dreams,” Dave said. “Seeing these young boys pursing their dreams; we’re just doing our part.” For more information about becoming a billet family, contact Crystal Warywoda at ckwary_2@hotmail.com or 613-2992480.

Debates on budget, Sadler Estates continue around Mississippi Mills council table

MISSISSIPPI MILLS – Mississippi Mills council defeated a motion to declare April as Parkinson’s Awareness Month on Monday. “There are more than 12 diseases and only 12 months,” said Coun. Val Wilkinson. She noted that prior to amalgamation, Ramsay Township did not declare months in support of any cause to ensure fairness. Coun. Bernard Cameron said that this was the only request the council had received in four months to dedicate a month to a cause. “There are 100,000 diseases out there, and if April becomes Parkinson’s and cancer, whatever, so be it,” Cameron said. “As long as it’s cost neutral, I don’t have a problem with declaring any month.” There was also discussion over wording of a proclamation and whether Mayor John Levi could legally declare the month.

comes from taxation and development.” There had been discussion with the developers at the March 7 committee meeting. Coun. John Edwards expressed concern at that meeting over the development. “Streets with fences, let’s do that in Kanata. That’s not what a small town is about,” he said. Coun. Val Wilkinson commented at the March 21 meeting that they were working to set up something that everyone would be proud of in the end. The development will have to make changes to roads based on the traffic analysis if requires them.

UPCOMING DISCUSSION The public budget meeting is set for April 5 at 7:30 p.m. at the Municipal Building at 3131 Old Perth Rd. Councillors debated budgets and tax levels at the council meeting on March 21. Coun. Rick Minnille asked if a wage freeze would change taxes, as council is currently in union negotiations with town staff. There is still debate over where money will be cut. Councillors are meeting on Thursday, March 24 to discuss the budget.ition and policy meeting.

MINNILLE SPEAKS OUT Council discussed plans for Sadler Estates development. Minnille spoke out against council holding back plans for development before receiving the full traffic impact study. “I sound like a broken record. You need to let the people in the office do their work. They sat down and did months of work and they’re not trying to get away with anything,” he said. “It’s starting to get broken down into two teams here and it’s not fair to the people who want to develop in Almonte.

Boal Bridge reconstruction plan will start this July brier.dodge@metroland.com

MISSISSIPPI MILLS – Travellers on Bellamy Road may have to find alternate routes for at least a month this summer as council has approved major repairs to Boal Bridge. Construction is expected to begin in July following approval at the Mississippi Mills committee-of-the-whole meeting on March 21. Boal Bridge is located on Bellamy Road in Mississippi Mills. Council approved moving forward with the recommended option, which examined four possibilities. Council will replace the current bridge with a concrete deck with new steel guardrails. This is the least expensive option and will see the road closed for the least amount of time, an estimated four weeks to begin in July, to accommodate school bus schedules. Not all residents are in favour of the bridge project. Several affected residents attended the meeting and expressed concern. Shane Lalonde lives northwest of the

bridge and said both he and his wife use it to commute to work in Ottawa every day. The town suggested an alternative route of taking Pakenham to the 417, but he uses daycare services in Almonte. He said this will add an extra hour of commute time for him each day. Residents also expressed concern at the meeting that the bridge would be done in four weeks, with one resident commenting, “a minimum of four weeks.” “I’m very unimpressed. Maybe this was acceptable in the 1800s,” Lalonde said. “They did Island Park in Ottawa overnight and it was two lanes and longer.” He said he would prefer the councillors look into a less disruptive option. Wayne Griese commented that he no longer takes a route where he must cross the bridge to get to work, but the bridge construction will deter him from traveling into Mississippi Mills, and he will choose instead to go to Arnprior for daily business. Greise said that councillors had their mind made up prior to the council meeting. He did attend the public meeting in Pakenham in February to express con-

The bridge was built in 1948 and has never had major construction or repairs. In the town’s February presentation for the public meeting, they said “the structure is generally in poor condition and (the) condition is progressively worsening.” It also said that “existing railing system over the structure is sub-standard and does not meet present Canadian Highway Bridge Design Code requirements.” Council discussed the alternative of having a more costly bridge that could be both wider and longer lasting. Pakenham Coun. Denzil Ferguson expressed concern that the bridge is not being expanded into two lanes. “I cannot respect the common sense part of it,” he said. “But the economics I can.” The engineer supervising the project was also in attendance and answered questions from council and residents.

cern over safety because, with a more direct approach to the new bridge, drivers will approach the single-lane bridge at a higher speed. The other options examined all required the bridge to close for a minimum of four weeks, but varied in cost and longevity. The first option was chosen because of the length of the detour route for residents most affected by the bridge closure, and the significant cost difference between the longer lasting options. The bridge is expected to last 25 years, though councillors noted, with proper maintenance, it could be lengthened. “I think staff has done a good job on this and looked at the options, we’ve made our staff put everything forward,” said Coun. Rick Minnille. Coun. Val Wilkinson was also in favour, and said the report was very clear and there was no reason not to support the recommended option.

According to the Alzheimer Society of Lanark, half of all Canadians over the age of 85 have a form of Alzheimer’s disease or dementia. If you are interested in registering yourself or a family member to use the services or programs offered, call Jammie Bannon at 613-264-8430.

ALMONTE – Services for individuals with Alzheimer’s disease or dementia will arrive in Almonte in the near future. The Alzheimer Society of Lanark County has received approval for increased staffing in the Carleton Place and Almonte area that allowed them to expand their programming to include a centre in Almonte, said Jammie Bannon, public education co-ordinator for the society. Currently, a day program runs on Thursday and Friday in Carleton Place; the program in Almonte will run three days a week. The day program includes physical and mental care, social interaction and lunch at a cost of $18 per day. Participants must be approved by their community care access centre (CCAC) case worker to be eligible for the program, and typically attend one day a week.

Those approved could also be eligible for financial support, Bannon said. The programs are funded partially by the Ministry of Long Term Care and the rest through fundraising. Caregivers receive assistance too, through support groups and presentations and seminars on medications, community services and safety at home. The society ran a learning series in Almonte over four months that included these different steps in dealing with the various aspects of the disease, focusing on resources available in the community. “With that success, we’ve decided to set up shop,” Bannon said. “We’re just trying to raise awareness about the centre because we haven’t had a presence in that community.” Because the centre is still planning what programming to run, community input is greatly appreciated,

CARLETON PLACE – When it comes to the national debt, Parliament wants to keep hitting the snooze button. The Canadian Taxpayers Federation, however, is getting its old National Debt Clock out of mothballs for a repeat national tour, to remind Canadians of how much each one of us owes. The clock visited the Ottawa Valley this week, with stops at the town halls in Carleton Place, Arnprior and Renfrew. “It’s a message of fiscal restraint, to the politicians, to stop this clock,” said Derek Fildenbrandt, the federation’s national research director, during his morning stop in Carleton Place on March 18, when the federal debt stood at $562,935,090,488, with each Canadian “owing” $16,590. “We’re not going to stop until the budget is balanced,” he added. The clock is ticking upwards at a rate of about $124 million a day. “This clock is not new,” said Fildenbrandt. It has toured Canada before, from 1993 to 1997, when the deficit was eliminated

by the Chretien Liberals. “It played a big part in getting Canadians onside,” with deficit elimination, he said. The tour left Victoria, B.C., on Feb. 22, and will wrap up in Halifax, N.S. next month. It was parked just off of Parliament Hill on St. Patrick’s Day, and has already attracted the support of Carleton Place town Coun. Gary Strike. Prime Minister Stephen Harper was a former Reform Party MP from 1993 to 1997, and was also the past president of the National Citizens Coalition, but Fildenbrandt admitted that he is disappointed with Harper, who used to espouse fiscal conservatism. “At some point, Harper stood for a lot of the values that the Taxpayers Federation held,” he said. He blamed the culture of bureaucratic Ottawa for changing Harper’s outlook. “Ottawa does that to you,” he said. “But it’s not just Stephen Harper. All parties in Parliament are responsible for this. The Conservatives have been increasing spending even before the recession.” The Ignatieff Liberals were also not spared Fildenbrandt’s wrath, with their recent an-

“We don’t believe that government spending is what prevented the economy from begging worse,” said Fildenbrandt. “There is zero evidence that even one job was created.” He also pointed out that believing that stimulus spending is helpful to the economy requires one to believe that, “the government can create jobs better than the private sector can.” While the timing of the next election is still up in the air, Fildenbrandt does want to make deficit reduction and elimination an election issue. One of the ways the government can clean up the books is by getting rid of wasteful spending, and doing some big rearranging, like phasing out equalization payments to the provinces. “Equalization encourages provinces to engage in economically destructive policies,” he said. He also called for the end to business subsidies or “corporate welfare,” no more bailouts, reining in health and social transfers to the provinces, and changing the face of public health care. “We need to still have a public health care system,” he hastened to add. “But the private sector needs to be allowed to step in for financing and delivery.”

Canada fighting for what’s right in Libya

DESMOND DEVOY Des Says

S

trength is best used when it protects the weak. That is why our planes have taken to the skies over Libya. If ever there was a just war, this is it. The irony of western powers launching firepower on a Middle Eastern country the eighth anniversary of the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq was probably not lost on many people. But the differences between the two conflicts are like night and day. This time, the Arab League “respects” the United Nations mandate. Not only are they on side, but nations like Qatar and the United Arab Emirates are in support as well. Countries that took the U.S. and its allies to task for their Iraqi adventure, like France, Germany and Canada, are now not only on board, but are leading the charge. It is not lost on the us that part of the reason why we are taking action in Libya is because of that country’s oil wealth – with gas prices shooting up, we almost have to. Yes, the reasons why our six fighter jets and the HMCS Charlottetown are in the area are not entirely altruistic, and may even be partially selfish. But we can be certain that the rebels of Benghazi, facing certain annihilation just a week ago, or torture or exile if they survived, are just glad that we have arrived at the party – a little late and out of breath, but we’re there, making it an even fight. We support our men and women in the air, on the seas in the support base in Italy. These actions are part of a coming day of reckoning for Col. Gaddafi, the alleged mastermind behind the Lockerbie bombing in 1988, and attacks on his own people. Your oil money, Swiss bank accounts and henchmen won’t save you now. We do agree with the opposition that this should not be an open-ended mission. Even though time was of the essence, if it is not over within three months, it does need to come back to the House of Commons for a proper debate. The Libyan know best how to decide the future of their country, one without Col. Gaddafi and his family. Hopefully, the action taken by Canada and her allies this week will hasten an end to this bloody civil war. Once the dust settles, and a new democratic government is set up, Canada will be there, as we always have been, ready to help with tools, sweat and advice on rebuilding.

Opening up Almonte’s sidewalks for disabled To the Editor: The Mississippi Mills Accessibility Advisory Committee thanks the Carleton Place/Almonte Canadian-Gazette for publishing the article on Feb. 24, 2011, “Disabled activists call for crosswalks at several Almonte intersections,” by Desmond Devoy. Your paper’s coverage of the accessibility issues faced by its readers will go a long way towards making this part of our province accessible for all who live, work and visit here. Enacted in 2005, the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act requires the Town of Mississippi Mills to achieve accessibility by 2025 for people with disabilities so they can access goods, services, facilities, accommodation, employment, buildings structures and premises. As part of the Act’s requirements, the town established an Accessibility Advisory Committee in 2003.

The committee is comprised of a town councillor, and several appointed public volunteers. A majority of the members have a disability. It was this committee that made the presentation to the Town of Mississippi Mills’ roads and public works committee last month regarding crosswalk improvements and additional sidewalk snow removal – a step towards fulfilling the mandate set before us. Accessibility is everyone’s concern – whether you have a disability yourself, have a relative with one or plan to live a long life with all that challenges that come with aging. Look for more updates and information about what the Accessibility Advisory Committee is about and doing for you.

The person who knows best how to raise your child, is you. At the same time, everyone else knows how to raise your child better than you do. Being a parent, like being a referee, is a thankless job, because everyone thinks that they can do a better job of it than you. Author Amy Chua is learning this the hard way, with her new book Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother, in which she defends the more traditional Chinese method of child-rearing, and berates what she sees as overly-permissive Western parenting methods. For example - Facebook? Overrated. Sleepovers? Ditto. Instead, take those four hour Facebook sessions and use them to teach your child to play the violin. And keep at them, even when you both want to quit. There is something to what Chua says. My Irish parents were by no means overly permissive, but I do look back at the hours I wasted watching crappy TV, and I shake my head. But nothing gets a person’s ire up when you tell them that they are raising their kids the wrong way. My wife was baking a cake for our daughter’s first birthday back in October. She was purchasing a cake tin at a store in Smiths Fall. The cashier, hearing that this was a birthday cake for a wee one, looked at my wife and said, “Oh, so, I guess you’re pushing chocolate on her?” as though it was poison. Not sure why she would endanger a sale like that. Things change. My Irish grandmother allegedly was given a prescription for Guinness by her doctor to keep her strength up when she was pregnant, to replenish her nutrients. Now, that would seem taboo to suggest such a thing. But we can’t look at such a thing thorough today’s eyes. Unless something is putting a child in danger, or causing undue harm, maybe a lot of us should just butt out.

CARLETON PLACE – The Carleton Place and District Chamber of Commerce’s 2011 guide will be distributed this week to area residents. In fact, you’ll find it inserted in this newspaper today. The guide was circulated in past years as the tourist guide, but several years ago was la-

LETTER

Scoop the poop To the Editor, I am sending this letter based on a comment from a neighbour, but I heartily endorse her concerns. During the winter months, the main street is snow plowed on a regular basis, and any surprises on the street are moved off to the side of the road and picked up by the snow removal equipment and disposed of somewhere. However, between snowfalls, many large and offensive surprises are left on the sidewalks of our town, particularly noticeable on Bridge Street. Not only is this offensive to the many people who work and shop downtown, it is a health and safety hazard. When you step in one of these slippery messes, you will understand. Stepping out of your car onto the street always warrants a caution look before your put your feet on the ground. While this is particularly noticeable on Bridge Street, the same conditions exists on most side streets. It makes looking forward to spring a mixed blessing. Enforcement of the bylaw against allowing dogs to leave their excrement on the streets should not be that difficult. I notice a number of people walking their pet, with no available method of cleaning up after them. While having a poop and scoop bag with you is likely not a requirement for walking your pet, talking with these people, and determining if they have the appropriate licence for their pet, would at least be a start and they would know that there is a bylaw officer. If we are serious about our downtown and the various walkabouts that we have in our tourist brochures, residents and tourists alike would have a better time looking at the fine stores and buildings, rather than watching where they step. Spring is coming, clean sidewalks will make it more enjoyable. Sincerely, Doug Smith Carleton Place

beled ‘the guide’ under a Carleton Place re-branding initiative, said tourism team chair and Carleton Place Chamber of Commerce vice-president Tracy Lamb. The Chamber of Commerce has focused more on Carleton Place and area residents in the past few years, rather than just

tourists. “We want to encourage and motivate people who live here to actually spend more time here, more energy and dollars in our community,� said Lamb. This year a photography contest is being held in order to build the image bank for the 2011 guide. Lamb said the contest

hasn’t been formally structured yet, but those who are interested should stay tuned and get out their cameras to start snapping photos. She said that the highlights of the guide include an updated Carleton Place map in the centre, along with festival and event listing.

The information centre is located in the old train station at 132 Coleman St. If you have any questions about the guide or information centre, please call 613-257-1976. To receive a copy of the 2011 guide, look inside this issue of the Carleton Place-Almonte Canadian Gazette to find the guide.

Tories nomination battle looms with Sterling and MacLaren set to face off Continued from front Some say his preoccupation with rural property rights issues puts him out of touch with suburban voters in Kanata and Stittsville, to which he responds with “property rights affects urban landowners as well.” Sterling says MacLaren is on the wrong side of major local issues such as the Carp Landfill expansion (which Sterling opposes) and the Nortel pension fiasco. He said MacLaren has little interest in other issues such as providing more classroom spaces in Kanata. MacLaren, for his part, says Sterling can’t possibly stay fresh and offer new ideas after three decades in office. He promised to serve no more than “two or three terms” and will dedicate his time to reducing the size of government. He maintains the way for the PCs to lose the coming election is fight the McGuinty Liberals for the centre. The campaign spilled into local and national newspapers when MacLaren attempted to displace the long-time riding executive with his own people, a move many saw as too aggressive. It failed. Then came the now-infamous letter to a Toronto newspaper from Conservative MP Scott Reid, accusing Sterling of neglecting his constituents. Reid, MPP Randy Hillier and MacLaren are further to the right on many issues than Sterling. The latter two have been accused of doing more than showing support for one another. Liberal backbencher Rick Johnson sent a letter to Ontario’s integrity commissioner accusing Hillier of “abusing taxpayer dollars” by using his website and legislative resources to help MacLaren win the nomination. On Feb. 10, MacLaren sent out a campaign email that routed through the MPP’s constituency website to his own. If the commissioner establishes that MacLaren’s email account is paid for through Hillier’s constituency funds, an “improper use” of tax dollars meant for non-partisan purposes would be leveled. Hillier calls the “frivolous” controversy a technical error by a website operator, and isn’t worried over the outcome. “This is politics. It’s just another partisan shot by the Liberals,” Hillier said. “It’s a technical error by a third party.” He also denies supporting MacLaren, saying he never gets involved in nominations. However, that’s not the way Sterling sees it, linking the two as closely as possible. “They are either sloppy or doing something wrong,” he said, refusing to comment further. Observers say the internal bickering could open the door for high-profile Liberal candidate to steal the Tory stronghold in the fall election.

Due to heightened interest in the closely matched contest, the March 31 meeting will take

place at Scotiabank Place. Registration is from 5 to 7:30 p.m. Speeches are at 7:30. Voting by

PC card carrying members is at about 8 p.m. The meeting is open to rid-

ing members of the Progressive Conservative party. With files from Geoff Davies.

SIT STILL AND BE ASTONISHED- BECOMING MINDFUL

One of the best deďŹ nitions of Mindfulness comes from Jon Kabat-Zinn, the founder of Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction. Kabat-Zinn said that mindfulness is, “paying attention on purpose, in the present moment, and nonjudgmentally, to the unfolding of experience moment to moment.â€? Cultivating mindfulness helps you: • be fully present, here and now • live with full awareness in each moment • understand how your own mind works • be self accepting and kind to yourself • fundamentally change your relationship with unwanted thoughts and feelings • experience unpleasant thoughts and feelings safely • become aware of what you are avoiding • become aware of thoughts/beliefs you habitually and unhelpfully identify with • become more accepting without the assumptions and criticism that distort much of our experience, and therefore become less judgmental • develop intimacy with yourself and others • experience the world more directly through your senses rather than through thoughts and ideas • increase self-awareness • become less disrupted by and less reactive to unpleasant experiences • have more balance and conďŹ dence • learn how practicing mindfulness requires discipline and enables discipline • really see the distinction between you and your thoughts • learn that everything changes; that thoughts and feelings come and go • generate more calm and peacefulness in daily life Here is a list of ways to practice mindfulness in your daily life

• When you wake up in the morning, notice your breath before you get out of bed. The quality of our breath tells us a lot about our state of being. When the breath is slow and steady we are calm and peaceful. When the breath is constricted we are tense. • Before you get out of bed, notice your thoughts. What was your ďŹ rst thought upon waking? This practice helps us get in touch with what is on the mind. • When possible, eat silently. Before you eat, consider all the people involved in providing food -- farmers, truck drivers, people in supermarkets. Offer gratitude for all these people. • Notice your environment: sunlight, rain, the wind, trees, sights and sounds. On your way to work, school, appointments or your other daily errands, be mindful of driving your car, walking, sitting on the subway, arriving, your state of mind and your thoughts. Are you in the present moment or thinking ahead to what you will be doing next? Notice your body, and let your breathing help you relax your shoulders, soften your face. • Notice when you can stop the pressure of pushing to get where you are going and simply enjoy the process of getting there. • Practice mindful, conscious breathing throughout your day: at work, while sitting down, at your desk, at your computer, while speaking on the phone and in person. • Allow yourself to be calm and peaceful. Use daily cues as reminders to be mindful: the doorbell, the telephone, sounds on your computer, turning on a light, checking your watch or a clock for the time. • Approach meals with mindfulness. • As you leave your daily activities, take a moment to appreciate what you have accomplished and consider how you have interacted with others. • Consider your trip home as a transition time between

your daily activities and your time at home. • Become aware of your breathing, smile, notice the quality of your thoughts and feelings. • Approach your homecoming and the people you come home to, with peacefulness and kindness. • You can use conscious breathing - awareness of breath - as a foundation to encourage daily-life mindfulness, just as you use it as the foundation for your sitting and walking meditation practice. • Eat meals without doing anything else. Eat them sitting down, rather than standing up or in your car or on the run. • As you go to bed and prepare for sleep, breathe, become aware of your body and relax, and letting go of daily activities and of your anticipation of tomorrow. Consider other ways to bring mindfulness into your life.

Close, but no cigar for local hockey club Carleton Place Canadians fall short in first ever playoff run BRIER DODGE brier.dodge@metroland.com

The Carleton Place Canadians battled through a series of tight games for a heartbreaking 4-2 loss in their first CCHL playoff experience. The Gloucester Rangers had overtime wins in games four and five and clinched the series with a 6-2 victory on Friday night in Carleton Place. It was the first loss with margin of more than one goal for the Canadians in the series. Luke Martin and Shayne Morrissey each had a goal for the Canadians, but the team fell short

on the power play, while the Rangers took advantage of their opportunities with the man advantage. Last year, in the team’s first year in the league, they failed to qualify for playoffs. This year, they fell to a team ranked one place higher after regular season play. HIGH ATTENDENCE Despite fan support, the team is now done for the season. The Photo by Nevil Hunt league reported an attendance at Canadians winger Trent Durocher, right, gets a step ahead of two Gloucester Rangers opponents during the Carleton Place arena of 686 people for the final game of the game six of the best-of-seven CCHL playoff series at the Carleton Place arena on March 18. The Rangers won the game 6-2 to eliminate Carleton Place in six games. series.

Carleton Place’s Bill Bowker relieved of duties Long-time head coach of the Smiths Falls Jr. A Bears released just days after team’s elimination from playoffs ANDREW SNOOK andrew.snook@metroland.com

Just days after the Smiths Falls Jr. A Bears elimination from the CCHL Tier 1 playoffs, the organization fired Bill Bowker, its long-time head coach. Bowker, a well-respected member of the hockey community, at both the professional and junior hockey levels, was shocked to hear the news. “It was unexpected and pretty surprising,” he said. “But it’s all part of it. I have a lot to be thankful to Chris (Cassell) and his mother Joan to coach at this level. I will be forever grateful for that.” The long-time Carleton Place resident said he will have to reevaluate his life at this point, before deciding on what to do next. “I’m 62 years old. I had nothing left in my life other than that hockey team. I focused on that and the kids. I think that’s the biggest part of it. It was all-consuming for me. I was viewed on with respect by the hockey community. I guess it’s time to let the young lions roar,” said Bowker. Bowker was hired in December 2004 and turned the Bears organization around, from missing three consecutive playoffs,

to four straight playoff appearances and a trip to the CJHL finals in the 2007-08 season, where the Bears lost to the Pembroke Lumber Kings in five games.

“It was unexpected and pretty surprising.” Bill Bowker With Bowker at the helm, three Bears players were selected in the 2008 NHL entry draft: Mike Bergin, Mark Borowiecki and Nicholas Tremblay. It marked the first time three players from the same CJHL team were selected in an NHL draft. Before coaching the Bears, Bowker led a variety of teams to success in various junior hockey organizations. Chris Cassell, president of the Smiths Falls Jr. A Bears, offered no explanation for his decision, but said it was time for a change. “I have no comment, there’s

nothing to be said,” Cassell said. “(Bowker) contributed a lot over the years, I just made a decision.” Cassell said he did not have a new head coach in mind for the 2011-12 season. A RESUME BUILT FOR SUCCESS Bowker spent several years coaching at the university level. He coached Carleton University’s men’s varsity team for two years before jumping over to women’s hockey, where he coached the Golden Hawks at Wilfrid Laurier University from 1999 to 2003. Over his tenure at WLU, Bowker led the Golden Hawks’ women’s hockey team to Ontario University Athletic Championships in 2001-02 and 2003-04, as well as two silver medals and a bronze medal. He also led the team to a silver medal at the national level. In the 2001-02 season, he was also awarded the OAU’s Women’s Hockey Coach of the Year Award and the WLU Glenn Caroll Hawk Coach of the Year Award. He left WLU with a regular season coaching record of 79-1810, and a playoff record of 12-5. He was also on the ice for Canada’s Olympic evalua-

tion camp, the assistant coach of Team Canada’s Under-22 women’s hockey team, and led women’s hockey teams to two provincial gold medals and a gold medal at the 1999 Canada Winter Games. It is likely that another organization will be seeking out a coach with Bowker’s credentials; however, Bowker said it is

too soon to think about the possibility of coaching with another organization. “This isn’t something you get over at 11 o’clock in the morning and start working somewhere else at one o’clock in the afternoon. There’s so much that goes into it, the kids, recruiting, design, it’s going to be a big change for me.”

Carelton Place hospital main beneficiary of April 3 concert

DESMOND DEVOY desmond.devoy@metroland.com

CARLETON PLACE – Country and western fans love their music as much as they love their community. Because of that, the Carleton Place and District Memorial Hospital Foundation may soon be getting a whole lot of lovin’ from country fans, on a yearly basis, with the first of a hoped-for annual country music fundraiser for the hospital. “The first time we tried something like this was last spring,” said Ottawa Valley fiddler Wade Foster, who is hosting the Spring Country Show at the Carleton Place arena this Sunday, April 3, at 7 p.m. Last year, Foster held a CD release party for his new album, and divided up the proceeds between the hospital and the Carleton Place town hall rehabilitation project. “That night was quite a success,” recalled Foster. “We had about 300 people out and raised $3,000.” This year, Foster decided to do things a little differently. “I don’t have a CD out this time so I could have more musicians along,” he said of his six-star line up, including himself. “I try to support the hospital in any community because it is something that everybody needs…Good or bad, everybody has to go there,” added Foster. “As

soon as you say a charity like that, people are more than ready to help out.” The Spring Country Show will be held at the Carleton Place Arena’s upper hall at 7 p.m. on Sunday, April 3. Doors open at 6 p.m. Tickets are $15 per person, children 12 and under are free. The entertainment that evening includes: • Shawn McCullough (Westport) • Cheryl Dermann (Perth) • Ed Bowes (Carleton Place) • Brad Munro (Almonte) • DoubleBack, featuring Marc Lemieux, Roch Lafleur and John Wilberforce Foster said he tried to keep the performers as local as possible, and that he was glad to be able to call them up on the phone and get a very quick answer. “They’re friends of mine,” he said of the performers. “Using friends like this, it’s as simple as phone call.” Foster believes the country and western roots of the area are still strong. “Even though we are so close to Ottawa and Kanata, it is still a rural community,” said Foster. “(Carleton Place residents) probably do work in the city, but within five minutes, you’re in the country.” He expects country fans from Renfrew, Ottawa, Richmond and Westport to come to town for the event. “I don’t think that there are that many shows of this style for people to see,” said Foster. “We try to do it as professionally

as possible.” The show will feature many standards, original songs by Foster, as well as new country and more traditional country, “to try to appeal to a broad age group, if we can.” While he noted that the demise of the Riverside Jam every summer was sad, he noted that events will come and go, and that there were a number of factors, behind the Jam’s cancellation. But he pointed to the success of Ottawa’s Capital Hoe-Down as an example of the durability of country music in eastern Ontario. “If promoters are willing to shell out millions of dollars for a show, that shows the strength of country music in the area,” he said. The Stomp Your Paws for LAWS fundraiser the weekend before also sported a galaxy of its own country stars, but Foster believes that there is enough love to go around. “I don’t think it’s any trouble having two shows within a week of a country music nature,” he said. “(Country fans) are quite devoted to their music and communities.” Tickets available at the door or at Collins Barrow Chartered Accountants, 52 Lansdowne Ave., Carleton Place, or Mark’s Cobbler Shop, 98 Gore St. East, Perth. Call 613-812-0096 for more information.

Colorectal cancer is highly treatable – if detected early stool on three different days and then have the samples analyzed. “If there is blood in your stool, you will be referred for further investigation via a colonoscopy,” explains Dr. Ferraris.

Colorectal cancer is the second-leading cause of cancer death among Ontario men and women. Yet it is highly treatable—if detected early. March is National Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month, and local physician Dr. Franz Ferraris answered some frequently asked questions about the disease. Who is at risk for colorectal cancer? “Family history is the big risk factor,” says Dr. Ferraris. “People who eat a diet low in fibre and high in refined foods and who don’t exercise are also at increased risk, as are people who have bowel problems such as inflammatory bowel disease.” What are the symptoms? “Abdominal pain, indigestion, constipation and blood in the stool are common symptoms,” says Dr. Ferraris. “Changes in bowel habits, such as constipation followed by bouts of diarrhea are others.”

Who should be screened? “Screening should begin at the age of 50, or much earlier if you have symptoms or have a first-degree relative who has had the disease,” advises Dr. Ferraris. How does the screening work? Fecal Occult Blood Test kits, which test for blood in the stool, are available free of charge from your health care provider. To use the test, you collect small samples of your

A colonoscopy permits a doctor to look inside your entire large intestine, from the lowest part, the rectum, all the way up through the colon to the lower end of the small intestine. “A colonoscopy also provides the ability to biopsy growths in the colon, make a diagnosis and treat colorectal cancer at an early stage,” he adds. How can you lower your risk? “A diet high in fibre, fruit and vegetables and low in meat will help lower your risk, as will regular exercise,” says Dr. Ferraris. “Watch for any symptoms and get screened. This is not a disease to be shy about. Be forthright about any symptoms, because this is a very treatable disease if detected early.”

The price families pay for substance abuse Information session today will focus on effects on families of drug, alcohol abuse DESMOND DEVOY desmond.devoy@metroland.com

BECKWITH TOWNSHIP – It’s not just substance abusers who suffer as a result of their addictions. Families and loved ones also suffer, yet are sometimes forgotten when discussing addictions, even though they are often part of interventions and eventual treatment. Because of this, the Beckwith Township municipal substance abuse committee will be hosting an information session entitled Drugs and Alcohol – How It Affects the Family, on Thursday, March 24, at 7 p.m. at the Brunton Community Hall in Blacks Corners (Highway 15 and Ninth Line Road). The speech will be delivered by Erin LeeTodd, executive director of Lanark County Interval House. Light refreshments will be served and all are welcome. The committee was hard at work on Monday, March 22, putting the finishing touches on today’s conference. Linda Guetta, the provincial representative on the committee, suggested that a pharmacist could be brought in to a possible panel discussion following Todd’s speech, to speak to seniors about keeping up with their medications, and how to avoid addictions to prescription medication. While he applauded Guetta’s pharmacist suggestion, fellow committee member Har-

ry Baker was not entirely sold on the idea of a panel discussion. “I don’t know how effective a panel discussion is,” said Baker. “They tend to go off talking about what they do.” The committee had received about $1,750 in grant money, which will be used to purchase promotional material. Reeve Richard Kidd, who chairs the committee, noted that Drummond/North Elmsley’s substance abuse committee had bought up dozens of iPods. They were going to give them out to youth with stickers for their drug strategy committee, in order to encourage them to get involved, said Kidd. In the end, about $400 of the money went towards the information session, while $750 went towards purchasing pens with an anti-drug message printed on them. That cost would cover about 500 pens, which should cover the 428 students at Beckwith Public School in Blacks Corners, with the remainder going to the Calvary Christian Academy in Franktown. “They (young people) don’t necessarily want to talk to someone about an issue, but they will pick it up,” said Guetta of the freebies. The committee also agreed to spend $200 on resource materials, $200 on pill boxes for prescription medications for seniors as door prizes at seniors events, and $50 to purchase magnifying glasses for senior events.

Earth Hour facts may leave you in the dark BY COURTNEY SYMONS On March 26, our area may face its darkest hour. In a good way. Earth Hour, the worldwide event that began in Sydney, Australia in 2007, asks individuals to turn off the lights and reduce their energy use for an hour on March 26, from 8:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. Last year, an estimated 10 million Canadians participated in the effort to raise awareness about sustainability issues. Earth Hour has become the most successful voluntary event in the history of humankind. Hosted by the World Wildlife Federation (WWF), Earth Hour saw a record 128 countries participating in 2010. But there is always room for improvement, said Paulette Roberge, head of communication for Ottawa’s WWF bureau.

“The main focus this year is to try to get Canadians to think beyond the hour,” she said. “Yes, we’ve had a very successful campaign since 2007, but it’s not enough to have people do it for only one hour.” Canadians should think of ways to minimize carbon emissions and cut down on energy consumption every day, said Roberge. She also stressed the need to switch to cleaner types of energy, like solar and wind. “Although Earth Hour has been phenomenally successful, the reality is that we’re one of the top ten nations contributing to climate change, and we don’t have to be,” she said. The Green Party will host a candlelit vigil on Parliament Hill on March 26, as they did last year. Over 400 people covered the hill in 2010, and this year there are 500 candles to be given away to participants. Roberge said Canadians at home can

turn off the lights, perhaps dusting off their board games and lighting some candles. Last year, Hydro Ottawa measured a six per cent decrease in electricity use, which is enough to power 58 homes for a month. The provincial average of energy consumption went down by four per cent, less of a drop than expected because of the colder than normal temperatures. To learn more about Earth Hour and how to participate, visit the WWF website at wwf.ca/earthhour. Users can find creative ways that fellow Canadians are participating, and download posters and tool kits for the event. Another initiative launched by WWF for Earth Hour this year is called Beyond the Hour, an online forum for people around the world to share ideas to reduce their ecological footprint.

Storytelling time for adults

New travelling storytelling theatre launches inaugural season with stops in Carleton Place desmond.devoy@metroland.com

CARLETON PLACE – Is storytelling something you do only for children? If you are Jennifer Cayley or Jan Andrews, the answer is most certainly no. “Storytelling for adults is absolutely unknown,” said Cayley. “They think of storytelling with grandparents and librarians and children.” While storytelling can be done with kids, it is not only that. “We wanted to change that,” said Cayley. “No one has ever marketed it properly.” That is why the two women decided to form their own non-profit company, 2 Women Productions, to tell stories for adults, “in acceptable performance venues within the community…to try and move storytelling into being an integral part of arts and culture.” One of the many challenges facing adult storytelling is letting audiences know what it is not – it is not monologue or a one person play. “We’re a great culture for wanting everything categorized,” said Cayley. The important difference for adult storytelling is that, “your fundamental relationship is with the audience and not with another person on stage.” Andrews has been telling stories for about 30 years, while Cayley has been at it for about 20 years, and she pointed out that their form of storytelling is more comparable in style to that of Stuart McLean’s Vinyl Café program on CBC Radio, or Garrison Keillor’s A Prairie Home Companion on National Public Radio, than it is with the likes of monologuist Spalding Gray. The company’s inaugural season will kick off with three productions, two of which will be held in the Lanark County area, with each production divided up into two 45-minute sets. While epics are all the rage at the cinema, with The Lord of the Rings trilogy and the Harry Potter movies, Cayley believes that people are hungry for an extended, epic experience in live performance as well. One recent weekend, she helped perform Homer’s The Odyssey in 14 hours. “It took us all weekend,” she said. “But people were mesmerized. People are hungry for that engagement, to be engaged with that story over time.” And while the audience might be sitting in their seats, there is still a lot going on. “It may look very passive,” said Cayley. “But the audience is working just as hard as the storyteller,” having to use their imaginations to paint a picture with their imaginations. Some storytellers use props in their performances, and that is true in the second show in the inaugural season, Talking You In: A Life Watch, with Dan Yashinsky and jazz guitarist Brian Katz using music to underscore the story. Cayley, who lives “on the Almonte side of Middleville,” hopes that this season will become a regular three-show-season every spring with frequent performances in Carleton Place, Smiths Falls, Peterborough, Perth and Wakefield, Que. While epics are a big part of adult storytelling, small, personal stories are also a happy member of the medium. In the second show of the season, Landscapes of Silence: A Daughter’s Story, Argentine storyteller Marta Singh tells a narrative set against the backdrop of the military junta that ruled Argentina in the 1970s and ‘80s, as well as her decision to have an abortion. “The story, in the end, comes down to being about her relationship with her mother and a place of secrets,” said Cayley. Meanwhile, Yashinsky’s story is very different, as he struggles to deal with his second son lying in

a neo-natal intensive care unit after his birth. His wife gave him the idea for telling stories to his sick son one day as they looked down on him, lying unconscious in the hospital. “Go and tell him a story,” Yashinsky’s wife said. “You don’t want the only sound he will hear to be the sound of beeps in his ear,” from the medical equipment. It is here though that there is another departure from a one-person show and storytelling, and that comes in the directing. “In storytelling, there is no directoral process,” said Cayley. “It’s more of a dramaturgy process. The storyteller must have the final vision of the show.” Cayley and Andrews will be working as dramaturges for Singh’s show, for example. “This is our work,” said Cayley. “We see ourselves as

professional artists. We want to get the work out there.” The season opener will star Cayley and Andrews during a special performance of The Book of Spells: A Love Story, at Peterborough’s St. John’s Anglican Church on Saturday, April 2, at 7:30 p.m. as a benefit for the Peterborough Women’s Events Planning Committee. Landscapes of Silence: A Daughter’s Story, starring Marta Singh, plays the following local dates: • Smiths Falls, Saturday, April 16. • Carleton Place, Saturday, April 23. • Perth, Friday, April 29. Talking You In: A Life Watch, with Daniel Yashinsky and Brian Katz, plays the following local dates: • Smiths Falls, Friday, May 13. • Perth, Saturday, May 14 . • Carleton Place, Saturday, May 21.

Funding sought for new Hall of Valour building

Daffodil garden to bloom this spring BRIER DODGE brier.dodge@metroland.com

CARLETON PLACE – Communities in Bloom has official town support from the department of parks and recreation to create a daffodil park called the Garden of Hope in Carleton Place. Over 4,000 yellow daffodils will be planted in Riverside Park this spring, said mayor and Communities in Bloom chair Wendy LeBlanc. The project was spearheaded by committee member Debby Lytle, who made a presentation to the town in February. “She went to the parks and recreation department here in town, they certainly thought that it was a great idea and said absolutely,” LeBlanc said. The daffodil is a representation of cancer support and the fight against cancer with the Canadian Cancer Society. It began in 1957 when 5,000 daffodils were donated to the Canadian Cancer Society and a Toronto volunteer decided to sell the flowers. Sales took off, and the Daffodil Days program began. The daffodil sale fundraiser has developed into the official adoption of the flower as a logo for

cancer support. The Garden of Hope is a project under Communities in Bloom, a Canadian organization that works to beautify and increase community pride. Other Communities in Bloom projects in Carleton Place have included concrete planters and Victoria School Museum community gardens. Carleton Place Communities in Bloom is paying for the bulbs and planting that is not done by volunteers, so all bulbs that are sold will see proceeds donated directly to the Canadian Cancer Society, LeBlanc said. Bulbs will be sold locally through the Garden of Hope program. The 4,000 daffodils will be planted throughout the park so that they will naturalize. That means numbers can grow larger year after year as the flowers spread out through the park. LeBlanc said the committee was inspired during planning by the famous poem called Daffodils by William Woodsworth which says, “Beside the lake, beneath the trees, fluttering and dancing in the breeze…my heart with pleasure fills, and dances with the daffodils.”

BRIER DODGE brier.dodge@metroland.com

CARLETON PLACE - The Veterans’ Hall of Valour is working towards gaining full funding for a new building. They were not approved for full funding from the Department of Heritage, but are expecting 50 per cent of the cost, said Canada Veterans Hall of Valour president Bob Campbell. “I wouldn’t consider it a setback,” Campbell said. “Fifty per cent is significant.” They are now seeking funding from the Trillium Foundation for the other $145,000 of the $290,000 project.

Since the Trillium Foundation has a maximum funding amount of $150,000, receiving half from the Department of Heritage made the end goal attainable, Campbell said. The new hall would be larger and have lower operating costs, as they could install newer heating systems and installation. There would also be more wall space to display veterans’ photographs. The hall currently displays approximately 1,400 veterans with small biographies and about 900 heroes without valour awards, Campbell said. The new building will al-

low them to display even more. The town has to approve the new location for the Hall of Valour, but Campbell said he hopes it can be close to the current location in the Victoria Museum. “When we know we have 100 per cent of the funds, we’ll be going to them to work out a location,” said Campbell, who said the process to receive funding can take some time. He said the group is optimistic and looking forward to their upcoming Valour induction banquet in Orleans in May. “We have a lot to carry on with,” he said. “Even if we don’t get the money.”

MAYOR’S MEALS ON WHEELS Mississippi Mills Mayor John Levi helps Meals on Wheels volunteer Corrie Horsfield load up here minivan on March 21 at The Waterford Tea Room in Almonte. Levi was taking part in the North American 2011 Mayor’s For Meals campaign, sponsored locally by the Mills Community Support Corporation’s Home Support program. The campaign seeks to promote the role that Meals on Wheels plays in providing independent living for seniors and disabled adults. The program started in the United States and expanded to Ontario in 2009. Levi joined volunteers Corrie Horsfield and Phil Alderwood at The Waterford Tea Room in Almonte on March 21, and helped them deliver the hot meals to waiting clients. Photo by Desmond Devoy

Jan Hopkins knows that cancer doesn’t discriminate. And that’s why she’s joining the fight by wearing a daffodil pin this April. “Members of my family have lived with cancer. I’m wearing a daffodil pin to show everyone in Carleton Place and Almonte living with cancer that they are not alone,” says Hopkins. Every April for Daffodil Month, volunteers in Lanark, Leeds & Grenville and across Ontario work together to raise funds for the Canadian Cancer Society by selling bright, yellow daffodils and by knocking on doors in their community to collect donations. This April, the Society has introduced a new daffodil pin as part of its annual campaign. By making a donation and wearing the yellow daffodil pin, you are uniting behind those living with cancer. The money raised during Daffodil Month helps the Society fight back against cancer by funding research to outsmart cancer and empowering, informing, supporting and improving the lives of Canadians living with cancer. “To some, the daffodil is just a flower,” says Leanne Waddell, Manager, Lanark, Leeds & Gren-

ville, Canadian Cancer Society. “To us daffodils fight cancer by funding research and clinical trials for better treatments and cures and by supporting community services right here in Carleton Place and Almonte.” In 2010 the Daffodil Month in Lanark, Leeds & Grenville was

an outstanding success and for 2011, the Society hopes to raise $253,000.For more information about Daffodil Month, please visit fightback.ca or call your local Canadian Cancer Society at 613-267-1058 or 1-800-367-2913.

and let people know what they are doing?” some of their neighbours asked, pointing to the outof-place cages. “There’s no government grant for this,” Shelley notes of the farm’s 10 signs, which cost about $125 each. “We’re doing this for our own community.” “It’s social responsibility too,” added Harold. “People are busy. A lot of people don’t know what’s going on any more (on the farm).” Education about where people’s food comes from, and showing passing drivers that the produce in the fields might well be in their brown-bag lunch on Monday, is another reason for the couple’s signage. “Food safety is huge now…and it helps to know where your food comes from,” said Harold. The couple were married in 1985, the same year they bought the farm off of Shelley’s parents. The farm is the same place where she grew up, and the couple celebrated 25 years of farming and marriage last year. They were involved with cow farming and milking for 17 years, but when fire consumed the family home in 2000, it signaled a shift in direction for the family. “We were out in the barn when the house caught fire,” said Shelley. “The kids had to break their windows to get out. I blame the cows that I couldn’t save my kids. I should have been there.” While the kids made it out of the house safely, the disaster took its toll on the family, and changed the course of their farming and family life. In 2002, they left dairy farming to focus on other crops like malting barley, hard red spring wheat, canola, and soy beans. But farming is becoming less and less of a part of even their family life. The couple have a grand daughter who lives in Ottawa. “She will probably be the only one in her school who will have

any connection to a farm in the Ottawa Valley,” said Shelley. The couple is also thankful to see farming production marketing campaigns that highlight the goodness of Ontario-grown eggs, for example. They joke that while the ads set the facts straight that white eggs come from white hens and brown eggs come from brown hens, some people are still confused when it comes to milk, believing that chocolate milk comes from brown cows. “You want young people drinking milk, not cola,” said Harold of milk advertising campaigns that use hip hop and rock ‘n’roll music. “Here (with the signage) we’re not ramming it down their throats,” Shelley said. Shelley and Harold will start planting again about the third week in April, but they stress, as many farmers do, that farming is not so much a business as it is a way of life. “You have to be happy with what you do every day,” said Shelley. “Right now, there is a lot of optimism.”

Continued from front “We’ve always been big on agriculture awareness,” said Shelley. “We’re big on bragging about what we do. We’re blessed to be here on a farm, working for others.” As Ontario becomes more urbanized, and people lose their connections to farming and the rural way of life, the couple decided that a roadside information sign would help people connect the dots between what was growing in the field and what ended up on their plate at dinner time. “I don’t know the difference between a wheat field and a hay field,” is one of the statement Shelley and Harold would most often hear from their non-farming friends. After the first season, the signs were a big hit. “When we were putting them up last year, people were stopping (their cars), saying ‘Good, we were wondering when you were going to put them up,’” said Harold, who noted that they were very lucky to have their farm border Martin Road North, the main artery between Blakeney and Almonte, which is also used as an alternate route to Almonte by some Pakenham residents. “It’s a really busy road,” Harold said. “Now people have started to stop on the road to read the signs and that’s created a bit of a traffic jam,” said Shelley. “We didn’t intend to create a traffic jam.” The signs have also gotten a good reaction from people they have met at the Almonte Fair. “We had people coming up to use, saying ‘Oh, I love your signs,’” said Shelley. The idea to erect the signs in the first place was itself spawned by an earlier incident, when the provincial government set up cages to trap deer on their property, as a way of conducting a survey of the damage done to fields by deer. “Why don’t you put up a sign

Red Ensign Flag to fly on Vimy Ridge Day New flag to be raised at Memorial Park Cenotaph BY BRIER DODGE brier.dodge@metroland.com

CARLETON PLACE – A new flag will soon be flying at the Cenotaph. In a special flag raising ceremony on April 9, Vimy Ridge Day, the Canadian Red Ensign flag will be raised. Currently the Canadian flag flies alongside the Union Jack or Ontario flag. The Cenotaph restoration committee recommended on March 8 to Carleton Place town council that a Red Ensign flag be flown on one of the flag poles. The joint project between the committee, the town and the Legion already saw a new Cenotaph dedicated in October 2010. The flag raising ceremony will be similar to the Cenotaph dedication ceremony and hopefully include a military gun salute said Ron Gobel, com-

Be pro-active to get most bang for your buck Trips to the pump are really packing a punch these days, as gas prices continue to rise across Canada, and around the world. Although filling the tank is hard to avoid, there are ways to save money and maximize fuel efficiency. GasBuddy, a website based out of Regina, offers a list of the cheapest gas prices in the area. “Most of the time, you won’t even have to go that far out of your way,” said Jason Toews, cofounder of the GasBuddy website. “You can save money just by knowing where to go.” Prices are constantly updated, allowing users to compare gas stations in their vicinity and choose accordingly. GasBuddy even has a downloadable application for the iPhone. In addition to gas prices, GasBuddy offers tips for drivers to maximize their mileage. With spring around the corner and the days getting warmer, Toews said that drivers should limit their use of air conditioning to save on gas. Opening the windows instead, however, isn’t always best. “It’s actually better to use the AC on the highway than it is to open the windows,” Toews said. The air flowing through the vehicle increases aerodynamic drag, causing the engine to burn up to 10 per cent more fuel with the effort. OVER HEATING

“There is a misconception about how long is needed to warm up your car before driving,” said Korey Kennedy, manager of public and government affairs for the Canadian Automobile Association (CAA) of North & East Ontario. “Many people think that five minutes are needed to fully warm up the engine, but 30 to 45 seconds will do the trick,” he said. Idling a vehicle for more than a minute is a waste of fuel, he added. Turning off the car and restarting it requires less gas than to keep it running. Kennedy also suggested taking anything unnecessary out of the trunk or back seat. More weight within the vehicle requires more fuel to move it. The “jack rabbit start,” as Kennedy called it, should be avoided at all costs. That means taking your time to stop or start, and attempting to maintain a constant speed. A good way to maximize your fuel efficiency is to use cruise control whenever possible. Additionally, the faster a vehicle goes, the more the drag increases. Driving 100 kilometres per hour, instead of 120, reduces fuel consumption by about 15

per cent, said Toews. Most cars achieve optimal fuel efficiency at about 90 kilometres per hour. Checking your tire pressure regularly is another way to get the most out of your gas. One tire that is under-inflated by two pounds of air per square inch (PSI) increases fuel consumption by one per cent. Kennedy suggested checking the tires once a month to ensure proper inflation. Gas prices will continue to fluctuate and potentially keep increasing. This variance happens for a number of reasons, Toews said. Recent revolts in Libya, the supplier of two per cent of the world’s crude oil, have certainly contributed to the rising costs, but are not the only reason for increased prices. “We’ve been cooped up inside all winter long,” Toews said. “We’re tired of it. We want to get outside and go places.” As the weather gets nicer, people drive more, and with this increased demand comes increased domestic gas prices. To check out things locally, visit GasBuddy’s website at www.ontariogasprices.com and enter the name of the town or area you want to see.

Maple Run Studio Tour set for this weekend JACKLYN GUAY With maple syrup season underway in the Valley, take the opportunity to tap into all that Pakenham has to offer through its Annual Maple Run Studio Tour set for this weekend (March 26 and 27 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.). For the ninth year in a row, area artists and establishments have assembled to create an event that not only showcases local talent, but puts a fun twist on fostering a sense of community. As a great way to greet the green of spring, pack up the kids and embark on this free, day-long excursion that will cover a roughly 10-kilometre span. The tour has 15 stops, with over twenty artists of varied special-

ties, including: photography, jewellery, relief carving, handmade bath and beauty products, quilts, toy making, designer clothing, multimedia works, various paintings, paper arts, weavings, glass art, pottery, ceramics and woodworking. These artists have also contributed their works to compile three gift baskets, which will be raffled off by the distribution and collection of free ballots at each of the studio stops. If that weren’t incentive enough, then some of the delicious eats and treats featured throughout the tour certainly are. After working up a healthy appetite, fuel up at Watt’s Cooking for a hearty home-cooked meal – or swing by any one of

the other four food stops, offered along the way. Finally, to cap off your journey, pop into Fulton’s Pancake House and Sugar Bush, open from 9 a.m.to 4 p.m. There you can experience some good-old Canadian culture through their renowned maple goodies. Also be sure to stick around for some of the many activities offered, such as horse-drawn sleigh rides, face painting, and toffee-making. As organizer Pat Dubreuil notes, the Maple Run Studio Tour, “has a little something for everybody.” Husband and wife team Pat Dubreuil and Don DeGroat, owners of Pakenham’s 3 Yellow Tulips Art Shoppe, and organizers of the event, have been selecting

local artists and collaborating with volunteers for months, in preparation. “The collection of artists changes and expands every year so that people have a nice variety, but also can return to the regulars,” explains Dubreuil. However, she describes that the tour provides even more than simply “exposure for these talented artists to show and hopefully sell some of their works, but also exposure of our beautiful village of Pakenham.” Most of the works mirror this affection for the area, drawing inspiration from rural life; many reflect some of the area’s historic gems, while also capturing the views and landscapes you are sure to absorb through-

out the tour. Some of the studios even make up these aesthetically pleasing landmarks, such as the Carnivic Lodge. “Pakenham has so much to offer from our five-span arch bridge, golf course, and ski hill, to the beauty of the village and its lifestyle,” says Dubreuil. “It is only 30 minutes from the city, yet many people don’t even know about it.” “The true purpose is to have fun. People have spring fever and need to get out and enjoy the weather,” says Don. The Maple Run Studio Tour is the perfect opportunity to do just that. Maps are available online at www.maplerun.on.ca, making it easy to embark on this fun and diverse community tour.

What ever you’re looking for, these businesses ask you to consider them first. first.

Community

It is time to stop always blaming the victim The first words that often come out when a girl or woman has been abused or raped, paint a very scary picture of the reality female victims of violence are faced with. Where was she? What was she wearing? Why did she stay? Her reputation, choices and personality are all called into question. Not one question asks about the perpetrator. Not one question puts the blame where it belongs – on the abuser. We live in a society whose first inclination is to blame the victim, rather than hold the abuser accountable. While it makes sense for all of us to consider our safety, it is not a woman’s responsibility to guarantee she isn’t raped or beaten. It is our responsibility to ensure we don’t hurt others though. In fact, this is a lesson we teach our children from the time they are toddlers, so why do we not hold adults to the same code of conduct? The disturbing article from the New York Times, March 8th edition (yes, print-

ed on International Women’s Day!), that questioned the clothing, habits and maturity level of an 11-year-old Texas girl who was gang raped by 18 teenaged boys and men was the latest shocking example of the persistent trend of victim-blaming. The men have all been arrested for the crime. Sadly, this is not an isolated incident that only happens far from us. Lanark County girls and women have experienced their fair share of blame for being abused and raped. Small town communities can be even harsher in their treatment of the victim as confidentiality is difficult to maintain when everybody knows everybody else’s business. Girls and women in this community have been told by abusers and their friends and family to keep quiet, that nobody will believe them, and threatened if they break their silence. This phenomenon of backlash against the victim is a key reason why less than 10 per cent of sexual assaults are reported (many police services boards project that rate to be less than three percent). Of the few cases that do go to trial, sex

offenders and violent abusers often face penalties of only six months jail time if any at all, as in the case of a Moosonee man who spent over a year sexually assaulting his 13-year-old stepdaughter, ending only when she attempted suicide to escape the attacks. As a community that claims everyone deserves justice, our actions say different. We need to collectively focus on the abuser, his choices and actions. We need to hold FOR abusers accountable. We need to respond to victims of violence with compassion and support not suspicion and blame. Until we make those changes, justice will be something victims will just have to keep fighting for.

Halfway to Heaven is the title of a new musical, written and directed for the Mississippi Mudds by Mark Piper. Edward wakes up in heaven without his memory. His guardian angel, Sabio, makes him an apprentice angel, and brings him to help with one of his charges, Doris. With Sabio’s help, Edward becomes human again for a short time, learns something about his past, and rediscovers lost love. Tickets are $20 from Arts Carleton Place, 132 Coleman St., or by calling 613-257-2031. Show times are April 29 and 30, May 6 and 7 at 8 p.m. There will be a matinee on Sunday, May 1 at 2 p.m. Women Productions begin bringing the storyteller’s art to our area with Landscapes of Silence; A Daughter’s Story, a recounting of family secrets that cannot be spoken. Marta Singh grew up in Argentina when atrocities were occurring. But her family were “good people.” Her family could not “know.” Then at 16 she became pregnant. That could not be spoken of. Presentations will be on April 16 at Smiths Falls Station Theatre, April 23 in the Carleton Place Cinema and in Perth’s Studio Theatre on April 29. Tickets can be ordered from Tickets Please, at 613-485-6434. This month Perth’s Studio Theatre production jumps the gun with the funny, but poignant, comedy, You Say Tomatoes, which takes a humorous look at the differences between American and

British attitudes. Sounds like sure-fire fun! Performances will be held at the Studio Theatre at 8 p.m. on March 31, and April 2, 8 and 9 and at 2 p.m. on the 3rd and 10th. Tickets are $18 from “Tickets Please” (a small convenience fee applies) or directly from the theatre. Visit www.studiotheatreperth.com for details. See you at the show!

On Friday, March 4, Herbert Biggs, who lives at Millfall in Almonte, spotted a red-winged blackbird on a bushy plant by the Mississippi River. South and west of Almonte, on Ramsay Ward, Concession 1, Sadie Dupuis has a barred owl around her home. This owl has been there since before March 8. On Tatlock Road, south of Union Hall, Pattie and Barry Parks had three red-winged blackbirds come to their property, March 9. Moving up to Pakenham, Ray Holland called to report a redwing at his place, March 9. March 12 brought more Canada geese north in two areas. Cliff Bennett observed 15 geese sitting on the ice in the river in Almonte. He saw a male northern cardinal on Hope Street in Almonte, plus a red-tailed hawk perched in a tree, on Clayton Road. In Beckwith Township, Randy Marinelli called that day to report a small flock of geese flying over his house. On my way to church on March 13, I saw an American robin on Farm Street in Almonte. Later that day, in Carleton Place, Georgina Doe observed a second or third-year bald eagle. As well, on the Mississippi River, she saw the two trumpeter swans, between the Highway 7 bridge and CP Canoe Club. The day before, Mike Jaques had seen these swans. In the evening of March 13, Mike MacPherson called to tell of a saw-whet owl outside his home.

ENGAGEMENTS

MARCH

Just inside the main entrance of the C.R. Gamble Funeral Home is a book of remembrance. Each day we turn a page in the book. The names of those we have served are inscribed on that date along with the year in which they passed away. It is our way of honouring and remembering a life that was lived. It is also our

way of saying “thank you” to the many families who have shown confidence in us since we came to Almonte in 1973. Some families are unable to visit this book on the anniversary of the death of those they love. For this reason we are proud to publish these names weekly as our way of saying...“We Remember”.

BY GEOFF DAVIES geoff.davies@metroland.com

Sharon Swanson’s fingers must be exhausted. As a member of the Lanark County Grannies, she has been furiously at work writing letters to federal politicians in support of Bill C-393, which, if passed, would make it easier for Canadian companies to sell generic drugs overseas. With 308 members sitting in the House of Commons and 105 senators, those letters have been keeping her and the Grannies busy. Not that Swanson minds. “You can stay and do it all day long,” she said. “It’s seductive because we’re so close, we’re so close after all these years.”

On the morning of March 7, Sharon Swanson and other Lanark Grannies held a brief vigil outside of MP Scott Reid’s office to deliver a letter urging him to support the bill. Reid did not support the bill, despite being lobbied by the Grannies.

BILL PASSED ON MARCH 9 The House of Commons passed the bill to amend Canada’s Access to Medicines Regime on March 9, which humanitarians say could have a dramatic impact on the struggle against HIV/AIDS. The next step is for a second reading in the Senate, which could happen as early as March 21. If approved there, it would be a major step towards cutting red-tape on a bill that, despite being on the books since 2004, has been used by only one company to send one shipment of HIV/AIDS drugs to another country. The Lanark County Grannies is one of 240 groups who have been fighting for this bill for more than two years as part of the Stephen Lewis Foundation’s Grandmothers to Grandmothers Campaign. Aside from countless phone calls, letters, emails, and many visits to MPs, the campaign has also involved a trip to Ottawa for Swanson and her colleagues. She was part of a group of 10 local Grannies who went to Parliament Hill to watch the vote on March 9. “There were over 85 Grandmothers in the gallery, it was packed on both sides,” said Swanson. “And we had the most Grannies out there of all, which is kind of nice, not that it makes any difference.” That day the bill passed by a vote of 172-111. A private member’s bill originally sponsored by the NDP, it got a unanimous vote in favour from that party, as well as votes from a majority of Bloc MPs and some Conservatives. It received the support of most Liberals, except for two MPs who voted against the bill and several who abstained. “It was great to see 26 Conservatives vote in favour of the bill,” said Swanson. “Brave souls.” Local MP Scott Reid did not support the bill, Swanson noted, saying she found it disappointing, especially after the Grannies’ previous attempts to lobby him. As part of this effort, on the morning of March 7, Swanson and five other Lanark Grannies held a brief vigil outside of Reid’s office to deliver a letter urging him to support the bill. Their message: “Few people in life get the opportunity to vote for something that can save the lives of thousands.” Both Conservative and Liberal members have panned the bill on the grounds that it may infringe upon intellectual property rights, and that it would not be as effective as it’s made out to be. As for the senators, Swanson said the Grannies’ hope to appeal to them as fellow grandparents. “We’re hoping that the senators will have compassion for the grandmothers who are raising these sick children,” she said. “Can you imagine lying in bed at night and hearing them cry from pain when you know that the pill exists somewhere else, but it’s too expensive for you? I can’t.” She said there is concern a delay in the Senate could kill the bill if an election is called, but even if that happened it wouldn’t be the end of the road for its supporters. “The Grannies aren’t giving up and were not going away yet.”
