was held on March 1st and the committee of elected, appointed and other volunteers, including parents, rolled up their collective sleeves and got right down to business in a wide ranging discussion on various youth oriented issues. The meeting was a fulfillment of an election pledge at the November Municipal Election by Mayor Earle J. Freeborn who declared at the start of the meeting that he appreciated everyone's "commitment and concern about our youth." Setting the tone at the outset the Mayor stated: “It wouldn't be

wise for us to tell them (youth) what we want to do for them." As the meeting progressed, it became evident the committee is determined to canvass the youth of the community to see what's on their minds. A survey questionnaire is being drafted for approval at the committee next meeting, with the intention of asking the schools for their cooperation in an effort to make direct contact with youth. While the inaugural meeting of the new committee discussed a plethora of ideas centered on the requirements and desires of the

Kevin Morris, Recreation Director, making a list of suggestions.

"We have to address that right away," stated Councillor Keith "Bud" Swanson. It was suggested youth be invited to join the committee and participate in developing plans to facilitate their desires. Several ways to do this were discussed and plans for a direct approach are expected to be laid out at a future meeting. In the meantime, the first meeting of the Youth Committee created a long list of possible projects. Topics ranged

from a drop-in center to organized summer playground programs. Several of the parent committee members noted there are many sports activities for youth already and sometimes there are scheduling conflicts, especially during summer. Youth who are going to participate in sports are already involved. It was also acknowledged that when kids get to a certain age it is difficult finding things for them to do. The Drop-In Center for the youth appealed to some of the Committee members. "They want to

hang out," said one Committee member, and herself a parent. "They need to be involved in the town. They need something to do," she added. There are people in town who want to help. The lack of volunteers to assist in any activities was viewed by some as an obstacle in future endeavors however; the meeting was optimistic in its view that there are people willing to get involved. "Council is committed to doing something," stated Mayor Freeborn.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR I would like to respond to the article which appeared in your paper on March 3, 2007 entitled, "Deputy Mayor booted out of meeting - Community once again left in the dark." It is important for your readers to be aware that the meeting held with foster parents on March 01, 2007 in Chapleau was a private meeting. Those foster parents present were asked if the Deputy Mayor, local school principal, reps from MCTV, and the Chapleau Express could attend. The foster parents did not want these individuals to participate in this meeting. By April of 2008, Kunuwanimano Child and

Family Services will hopefully become designated as a First Nation child welfare agency. Clearly, 85% of the cases served by our Chapleau office are First Nation children and it is in the best interests of these children that they be served by a First Nation CAS. The Minister of Children and Youth Services, the Honourable Mary Anne Chambers, has gone on record that all children must be treated with sensitivity and with respect when it comes to their culture and heritage. The Minister is also committed to the re-allocation of funding to First Nation child welfare agencies and remains

a strong supporter for the legal and constitutional rights of aboriginal people. On March 01, 2007 in Sudbury, the Board of Directors of the CAS of the Districts of Sudbury and Manitoulin discussed the concerns raised by Mayor Freeborn and they remain steadfast that service delivery to children in the Chapleau area will improve in the long term, with the

eventual transfer of child welfare services to Kunuwanimano. It is our hope that those in positions of authority and influence within the Chapleau community will rally behind Kunuwanimano, as they work towards this goal. David Rivard Executive Director CAS of the Districts of Sudbury and Manitoulin

REPORT FROM Queen’s Park BY Mike Brown, Provicial Member of Parliament for Algoma-Manitoulin

Daylight Savings Time Approaching Faster That Usual Daylight savings time will take place this Sunday, March 11, and if it seems to you like it has arrived earlier than usual, you would be right. Ontario is among several

jurisdictions that has opted to extend daylight savings time. Beginning this year, daylight savings time will now begin on the second Sunday in March, and end on the first Sunday in N o v e m b e r. T h e extension means that daylight savings time will now start three

Blue Heron Inn Blue Heron Inn Restaurant and bed and breakfast will be closed for the March Break March 12 to 16, 2007. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Hefty fine and suspension for large walleye overlimit KAPUSKASING A Mattice man has been fined $6,000 for having 30 walleye over the legal limit. R i c h a r d Lemay, 51, pleaded guilty. His fishing licence is suspended for two years Court was told that on July 21, 2006, acting on a tip to the ministry's TIPS line, conservation officers stopped a group of anglers, including Lemay, on Gurney Road in Torrance Township, north of Kapuskasing. Officers seized a large number of whole and filleted fish. Justice of the Peace Jean-Marie Blier heard the case in the Ontario Court of Justice, Kapuskasing, February14, 2007. The ministry

reminds the public that fishing limits maintain a sustainable fishery so that anglers and other resource users may enjoy the resource in the future. To report a natural resources violation, call 1-877TIPS-MNR (8477667) toll-free any time or contact your local ministry office during regular business hours. You can also call Crime Stoppers at 1800-222-TIPS (8477).

weeks earlier than before, and end a week later. The decision to move daylight savings time in Ontario was made in an effort to maintain the province’s competitive advantage by coordinating the time change with our major trading partner, the United States, who recently adopted extended daylight savings time as well. The province looked long and hard at changing daylight

savings time, and an inter-ministerial committee was put together to look at the effect the change might have on trade, energy, public safety a n d m o r e . Stakeholders and other levels of government were consulted on the change. Ultimately, a m a j o r i t y o f stakeholders supported of the idea of ensuring our clocks were synchronized with those of our American neighbours. The United

States has chosen to adopt extended daylight savings time in an effort to help conserve energy, as people are not expected to need their lights on as early in the evening. While there has been some debate as to how much energy this plan will really save, it is notable that Germany became the very first country to adopt the concept of daylight savings time in 1915 for much the same reason. In Canada, it is

up to each province to decide whether or not to adopt a change to daylight savings time. In Ontario, daylight savings time is governed by the Time Act, legislation that is the responsibility of the Attorney General. Most of the provinces and territories in Canada have chosen to adopt the proposal to extend daylight savings time. So this Sunday, do not forget to turn your clocks forward one hour.

REPORT from OTTAWA by Brent St. Denis M Federal member of Parliament Algoma-Manitoulin-Kapuskasing

STEPHANE DION COMMITS TO CORRECTING C A N A D A ’ S A F G H A N I S TA N MISSION Liberal leader Stéphane Dion committed to Canadians in a recent speech that he would embark on a principled and constructive way forward on Canada’s Afghanistan mission that would see a better integration of military and aid efforts as well as a firm 2009 end date. Mr. Dion began his speech by asking this question. Assume for a moment that we followed Mr. Harper’s desire to have Canada

fighting in Iraq, a position he advocated in 2003. His judgment in that case has proven to be very poor. If we had followed Mr. Harper into Iraq, would we stay in that quagmire at any cost in order to support our troops? Obviously not. We owe it to Canadians, to the Canadian Forces and to the Afghan people to do our best today to ensure our mission in A f g h a n i s t a n succeeds—for Afghans, for Canadians and for the international community. During his speech, Mr. Dion

outlined the key elements of the Liberal plan, including: • Committing to end Canada’s mission in Kandahar in 2009 and immediately informing NATO of this deadline so that a replacement nation can be found; • B e t t e r integrating military, aid and diplomacy efforts; • Developing an effective strategy to combat the problems stemming from the l o c a l e c o n o m y ’s dependence on the illegal opium trade; and • Addressing the chronic fresh water shortage. Under Mr. Dion’s leadership, the Liberals would retain the current number of Canadian troops in Afghanistan until 2009 to honour the international obligation undertaken

Chapleau Public School February terrific students

by the Harper government, but would review the current mission and reserve the option of re-deploying Canada’s combat task force to other under-resourced and critical functions in Afghanistan, such as

Ctraining the Afghan National Army and additional Provincial Reconstruction Teams. Between now and 2009, the Liberals would adopt a more responsible, integrated strategy in Kandahar, with a greater

development and diplomatic thrust, and with a real effort to win the hearts and minds of the Afghan people, upon whom the m i s s i o n ’s s u c c e s s hinges.

Chapleau Public Library on the way to automation O n F r i d a y, February 9, 2007 in Sudbury, the Honourable Jim Prentice, Minister of Indian Affairs and N o r t h e r n Development announced a FedNor investment of $499, 965 to support the implementation a central library network server.

These services include corporate support services such as accounting, technology support, and other services often provided by specialized third-

party companies. It has been identified as a growth sector for Northern Ontario and shares many of the human resource and infrastructure needs of the region’s successful customer service industry. The corporation will conduct a detailed study to determine the requirements for identifying and attracting back office investment to the North. This sector presents a high potential for growth in the North and funding is being provided directly from the GO North Investor Program as well as through the Northern C o m m u n i t i e s Investment Readiness (NCIR) initiative. The NCIR program gives eligible communities, economic development corporations, and First

Nations up to $5,000 per application for the development of essential and strategic community tools to help increase investment readiness and attract investors. Communities can also partner together on projects and subsequently receive up to $5,000 for each eligible applicant. Other McGuinty government initiatives that are supporting northern communities include: • Improving northern highways by investing more than $1.8 billion over five years in highway expansions and improvements through the Northern Ontario Highways S t r a t e g y • Contributing $60 million annually to the Northern Ontario Heritage Fund to support community and

economic development. To date, more than $345,265 in NCIR funding has been provided to 31 initiatives helping to enhance the investment r e a d i n e s s o f communities across the North. The GO North initiative is part of the

Northern Prosperity Plan. The plan is founded on four key pillars: Strengthening the North and its Communities; Listening to and Serving Northerners Better; Competing Globally; and Providing Opportunities for All.

Tembec Atoms bring home the gold from Sault extravaganza The weekend of March 2-4 will not be forgotten by far. It started with our first game on Friday night at 8:00 p.m. The boys came out full steam

and won their game against McDonald's 51. With a good night's rest and a few laps around the pool, their second game was a victory against A.J.

Bus Lines 5-1. With so many teams in our division, the boys new they had to win the next game or they were going home, so they stepped it up a notch

even higher and beat Soo Police 4-2. This put them into the semifinals. With butterflies in their stomachs, they gave it their all and won themselves into the finals with an astounding score of 8-

1 against Burger King. The final game was against Blind River Ice Dogs and started off with us scoring in the first period. Blind River came back and evened up the score. With less than a minute left in the

third period, the boys pulled out all the stops and made it 2-1 winning the final game!! Congratulations boys on being champions! Coaching Staff and Parents
