Another positive experience

A night on the street

By Bruce Corcoran bruce@chathamvoice.com

Sarah Schofield/The Chatham Voice

Chatham-Kent residents gathered inside the Chatham Capitol Theatre for a chance to win $10,000 on Positivity Day and outside on King Street West for the Downtown In The City Extravaganza on Sept. 13. Inside the theatre, attendees were treated to performances by locals including Crystal Gage and The Universe featuring Ray.

Just seeing volunteers setting up for a night of simulating homelessness moved Johnathan Fournier to tears. He knew he had to be part of Friday night’s Boxes and Blankets event where about two-dozen people spent the night in cardboard boxes to simulate part of what a homeless person endures. “As soon as I came here (to the Boxes and Blankets event) I knew I had to be part of it,” he said. “I

couldn’t just walk around and turn a blind eye. But others are. Look around. People are hurting.” Boxes and Blankets is an annual event, organized by Chatham Hope Haven, in which people sleep for a night on the street, with only boxes and blankets. The objective is to shed light on the issue of homelessness, as well as raise money for the mission, which opened last November. Fournier is all too familiar with the grim reality of being homeless.

Good vibrations fill Capitol Theatre By Bruce Corcoran bruce@chathamvoice.com

A dozen days of positivity in Chatham-Kent came to a close Sept. 13, with a Thamesville woman walking away with $10,000 in cash and travel vouchers, and someone walking out before their name was called. Mainstreet Credit Union and Vellinga’s Travel donated $5,000 in cash and $5,000 in travel vouchers respectively for one lucky person to win last Thursday. More than 440 people qualified, but they had to be at the 12 Days of Positivity touchdown event at the Chatham Capitol Theatre to win. Chris Crawford of Thamesville was, but the draw’s first potential winner wasn’t. Organizers were forced to draw a second time, and that’s when Crawford’s name came up. The woman left with a huge smile on her face.

Chris Crawford

She wasn’t the only one. Organizers, including mastermind Darrin Canniff, said the night was “a blast. “We had an amazing night. We had nearly 1,000 people at the Capitol, all like-minded,” he said. “We celebrated Chatham-Kent. We had some amazing local talent. It was a celebration of all the wonderful positive things in Chatham-Kent.” Over the 12 days, service clubs, neighbours, seniors, first responders, local businesses and agriculture, educators and more were positively celebrated. Canniff said a highlight for him was the tour of schools throughout Chatham-Kent. “It went fantastic. We covered all the schools again and received amazing feedback,” he said. “This year, we did a 10-minute message to the kids. Next year, we will work more directly with the schools, as we’re looking to improve and personalize for each school.” Canniff said the interest and enthusiasm from students in regard to the 12 Days of Positivity is very encouraging. “The kids are fantastic. Our future is bright based on the kids we’ve seen out there,” he said. “We need to nurture that.” Canniff also mentioned the free lunches, which took place every day last week, organized by 99.1 CKXS, throughout Chatham-Kent; and the COPA

for Kids event – where members of the Canadian Owners and Pilots Association took 150 local kids up for a free flight – as particular highlights. “One hundred and fifty kids went up. What a wonderful thing,” he said. The 12 days were highlighted by plenty of smiles, positive vibes and the spirit of giving. “There was all the other giving going on throughout, and to top it off, we gave away $10,000,” he said, referring to the Capitol Theatre finale give-

away. The good vibrations spread, as well. A blood donor clinic held in the middle of the Positivity craze saw record numbers show up, Canniff said. “You can’t get any more positive than saving a life,” he said. As well, a Pay It Forward group is developing locally, with more than 1,000 members. Canniff hopes to be linked to that group as well.

As for next year, the positivity will be felt earlier, as the group plans on running a video challenge in 2018. It’s sparked by the fun, positive video put together by St. Andrew’s Residence and other seniors’ support organizations this year. Caniff said the video challenge would go out in January, allowing for schools to plan and take part. The contest will close in May or June, he

added. Canniff said the Positivity Days are certainly catching on. “We just need to spend a little more time to focus on the positive things. There are negative things out there and we can’t ignore them, but when we have the choice to focus on the positive or negative, let’s look at the good side,” he said. “The glass is half full, not half empty.”

A site to behold

Books are still being manufactured with broad services available for the consumer, school and library, locally and afar.

Chances are if you have driven through Wallaceburg via the industrial area, you drove by Wallaceburg Bookbinding & Mfg. Co Ltd. (WBM) at 95 Arnold St. Many have no idea this business exists or even what they do. It is a hidden local gem with a far reaching customer base since the early 1960’s.

on demand technology. WBM can print and hardcover bind a single copy to hundreds and more. Printed pages can be hardcover bound into book format of various sizes. Printing pdf files of online manuals & textbooks and making them an actual hardcover book is becoming a popular request.

WBM is a “Certified Library Binder” and adheres to a high industry standard for hardcover binding. The product is designed to withstand high use. Not all hardcover bound books on the market meet this standard. Trade binders manufacture in very high quantities and do not adhere to this standard. Often these books end up at WBM for rebinding. Some schools send new textbooks to WBM, to be rebound with library binding before using them in the schools.

Many people have a favourite book they treasure that may be broken, split, pages coming lose or the cover is separated. In most cases WBM can fix it. Bibles are very popular for repair. They are often a personal treasure with handwritten notes throughout. One can purchase a new bible that is going to fall apart just the same or bring the bible to WBM, have it repaired and rebound keeping all your handwritten notes throughout.

WBM has a far reaching customer base with typical customers such as Universities, schools, public libraries and print shops across Canada and primarily Michigan and Ohio in the USA. The growing consumer market of personal orders are from across Canada and the USA. Surprising to many, WBM brings work to our local community even from as far as Nunavut.

WBM is constantly looking for ways to diversify and is very excited about their recent product launch, the customized “Document Box”. It comes in 3 sizes and looks like a book that will fit nicely on your bookshelf. It is ideal for holding a variety of documents, manuals, pictures, trinkets, memorabilia etc. It is personalized with custom embossing and the inside can be customized with a photograph. This is ideal for car collectors, a child’s school certificates, memorabilia, awards, etc.

So what is it exactly that WBM does in the digital era we find ourselves in today? Suzanne Wiersma, current Director of Operations says “AlAfter though less prevalent and in smaller quantities, books still have a place in this world.” Up until about 10 years ago, the largest percentage of work was the hardcover binding of periodicals for university, college and hospital medical libraries. Today, you would be hard pressed to find a shelf of periodicals in a hospital medical library. E-journals have completely changed this market. Fortunately WBM’s services are diverse and include Textbook rebinds, Book repair/ rebinds, Comic book hardcover binding, Logbooks, Family Geneologies, Theses binding, custom Binders, Book Boxes, Folders and Document Boxes. If you do not see it on the list, please inquire. Printing services are also available to accommodate the growing “Print on Demand” market.

When asked, “Where do you see the future of the book?” Suzanne replied, “There is a definite benefit to learning from an actual book. Recent studies and surveys are proving this. PEOPLE UNDERSTAND AND REMEMBER WHAT THEY READ ON PAPER BETTER THAN WHAT THEY READ ON SCREEN. The highest ranked schools in the world are in Finland and they use textbooks. Some school communities are migrating back to textbooks. Equally, there are benefits of technology as it is the way of the future. They both have a place. There just needs to be balance where both are used to maximize all benefits.” Suzanne added, “There is a misnomer out there where people believe paper is a bad thing. What they need to realize is that paper comes from a sustainable, renewable resource. It is biodegradable. Trees are not cut down to manufacture paper. This is a huge misconception. Paper is a byproduct of lumber waste. We should not be afraid to use paper for a printed book. Paper has a far less negative impact on our environment than electronics. Either way we still need to be good stewards of all our resources.” Check out the website: www.wbmbindery.com or visit WBM exhibiting at the International Plowing Match.

Shelter appreciated We spoke on Friday with people who have suffered through the difficulties of being homeless. The fourth annual Boxes and Blankets fund- and awareness-raiser in front of the Downtown Chatham Centre featured about two dozen people who spent the night in cardboard boxes as their only shelter. For several, it was an experience to which they were all too familiar. That included Johnathan Fournier, a young man who calls Chatham-Kent home now after spending years on the streets in Toronto. He said if he hadn’t found his way here, chances are he’d have been dead by now, by his own hand. Fournier spent many a night in shelters in Toronto, and now lives in a rooming house in Chatham. But he recalled sleeping under a table in a Toronto hotel ballroom, shifting around to avoid being spotted when a janitor came into the room to vacuum. In Toronto, homelessness is a visible issue. You can see people sleeping on subway grates, in Queen’s Park, or in other parts of the city. Here, it was once dubbed an invisible reality. But that is no longer the case. You can spot people heading down to slip under a bridge downtown as the sun begins to set, or the periodic sign of smoke coming from a long-abandoned and in-ruins property in central Chatham. In 2014, C-K council approved its 10-year homelessness plan. Consultant Gwen Potter-King warned council at the time action still needed to be taken to fix the invisible homelessness issue in the community. Municipal staff at the time said prevention would trump the need for a shelter, yet here we are in 2018 and a men’s shelter at Hope Haven has its eight available beds full most nights. Who is correct? We believe both elements are necessities. The traffic Hope Haven receives indicates the need for the shelter. Not all our homeless are couch surfers. But all require improved support. Fournier said he loves C-K, but wishes we had better services to support the homeless, as well as people with mental health issues. The shelter, however necessary, is a stopgap. Investment in affordable housing is what will ultimately get our homeless off the streets and into a warm place.

Opinion

Opioid crisis – a personal story Sir: Initially I liked it and I was glad to have it, because it took my pain away. I am talking about the use of a prescribed opioid in my pain management. I wish the desired outcomes came without the side effects. After using it for a short while, I realized that my body was getting used to it. This led me to wanting it more and more, thus this became a problem with the use of opioids in managing my pain. Even though, as time went-on, the more I ingested, the better my pain got managed, little did I know about a mishap waiting to happen with me. Once, I forgot to carry the bag of prescriptions in my trip to Toronto, and to my surprise, it’s at that time I realized that I had become dependent on it. That weekend I tasted the crisis associated with opioid-withdrawal. I suffered, and with me, my family suffered while

caring for me. It was a terrible weekend in Toronto. As though this terrible experience wasn’t enough, gradually increasing dosages while controlling my back pain “possessed me” – I lost my shortterm memory, my sense of orientation and I felt drowsy, sleepy, all day. My productivity dropped to zero and I became a burden on my caregiver. Under the influence of the opioids, I began making irrational decisions, eventually withdrawing myself from my social engagements and volunteering commitments in the community and the church. I felt useless. According to the Canadian Centre on Substance Use and Addiction, “Recent estimates indicate 13.1 per cent of Canadian adults used opioids in 2015, and among these individuals, 2.2 per cent (82,000 Canadians representing 0.3 per cent of the total population)

reported using them for non-medical purposes. There were 3987 apparent opioid-related deaths in 2017.” Opioids may reduce the degree of pain, may enhance one’s functioning level and introduce a general feeling of well-being, but they can also destroy one’s life, affecting relationships at home, school, employment and social settings. The data also suggests Ontario to be the second highest (1,263 per 100,000 population) province to British Columbia (1,470 per 100,000 population) in regard to the use of opioids. I found that prescription opioids had been falsely promoted/ marketed as a low-risk, non-addictive, effective treatment of moderate pain. Recent data confirms current opioid crisis is leading to broader issues – public health and safety concerns. I observed that even

prolonged therapeutic use of opioids can result in unhealthy dependency. I further observed that my treatment being supervised by my doctor had not familiarized me of the risks of overdose and accidental death. Where do we go from here? To recover from my opioid dependency, my objectives were to manage my chronic back pain; to stop my deteriorating level of day-to-day functioning; and to enhance my quality of life. In my previous opinion pieces on health and social issues, I have often advocated for adequate funded public policy, development of client-centered wrap-around seamless services, evidence-based programs, strengthening the community’s capacity to deal with the issue, and better co-ordination in the field, as well as among the departments of the various ministries of Ontario, etc.

Opinion

Should C-K council be downsized?

Sir: I have been listening, watching and reading about Doug Ford and the Ontario PC party’s attempts to downsize Toronto City council. I don’t think, judging from what I’ve heard, that it is a bad idea, but should have been announced when the Ontario PCs were campaigning, or waited until the current municipal election is over and then go towards the process to downsize for the next election in about four year’s time. I have also heard similar rumblings in other city communities about downsizing their

councils. I have not recently though, heard of our own municipal council doing the same thing. In fact, I believe the issue did come up at a municipal council meeting sometime in the past four years, but the deputation or motion did not pass. Would downsizing our municipal council be a good thing? Considering all the conflict and outcry that went on when the city and townships in Kent County amalgamated way back when and that there are still those who believe that this

should be reversed, well, downsizing would not be a good idea. It would not give fair representation to those in the former county or those in Chatham and Wallaceburg. The cost involved in changing the political structure of our municipality again would also not probably come cheap. I do think, though, that something should be done about the number of candidates running for mayor. I would hope that there is some sort of application process and

standard set out so that it is not That is just my opinion on this just a matter of paying a couple matter for what it is worth. of hundred dollars so some I would encourage everyone to people can proclaim their politget out and vote when you can, ical agenda, even if they don’t as that is a freedom that people have a chance of being elected. in some countries on our planet I suppose some would think don’t have, and some are even that is not the democratic way assaulted and killed for trying SQUARE FORMAT - CHATHAM DAILY NEWS (8�(8� x 8�) SQUARE FORMAT - CHATHAM DAILY NEWS x 8�) of doing things, but it probably to vote.

But this time, I will reserve my comments to individual and family roles and responsibilities in the prevention, treatment, after care and rehabilitation of those afflicted with the opioid use.

Law firm organizes mock trial tourney

By Bruce Corcoran bruce@chathamvoice.com

Local high school students with an interest in the legal system are encouraged to take part in a mock trial tournament this fall.

Organized by the local law firm Whittal + Company, the tournament will pit student teams against one another, with coaching from local legal personnel. The idea for the local tournament evolved from

an effort by Ursuline College Chatham students last spring. Katherine Denkers, a lawyer at Whittal + Company, said last spring, she reached out to the Ontario Justice Education Network looking for volunteer oppor-

tunities. “They put me in touch with (teacher) Mark Broadbent at UCC. A group of students there approached him about participating in the Ontario Justice mock trial tournament happening in

RJCK to benefit from donations Continued from page 8

“It’s the older generation and the younger generation getting together to help the next generation.” Appleton said the mock trial experience will help kids make career choices in the future. “We’re providing a unique pathway to kids to make the right choices and to develop skills that will be helpful later in life,” he said. Furthermore, the mock trial has a charitable aspect as well, as the organizers are working with Restorative Justice C-K. Donations will be collected at the door on Nov. 17, with proceeds going to the local non-profit organization. Restorative Justice C-K provides services for youth in the criminal justice system and at-risk

youth coping with a variety of challenges. The RJCK Positive Strides Programs are preventative intervention and educational sessions for at-risk youth. The programs are targeted at youth facing challenges with substance abuse, anger management, online and offline harassment, and criminal activity. All donations gathered during the tournament will directly fund the Positive Strides Programs.

Lally Group donates $70K to treatment centre The Chatham Voice

The Children’s Treatment Cen-

tre Foundation of Chatham-Kent has announced a $70,000 gift from the Lally Auto Group to

support the Butterfly Building Campaign. The Lally Auto Group’s four Chatham locations include Victory Ford, Chatham Chrysler, Lally Kia, and Chatham Mazda. The demand for specialized therapy for children and youth with special needs is growing in Chatham-Kent, with one in nine C-K children accessing the CTC-CK for physiotherapy, speech therapy, audiology, adapted recreation, music therapy, social work,

occupational therapy, autism services, and respite. The Butterfly Building Campaign will support building a larger, stateof-the-art facility that will better accommodate the growing caseload. “The Lally Group has always been a very generous supporter of Chatham-Kent. The Children’s Treatment Centre is thrilled to be working with the Lally family, and the staff of all four of their dealerships,” Mike Grail, Chair for the CTC Foundation Board, said in a release. Lally Auto Group’s donation has been from a combined ef-

fort from the four dealerships and their involvement and dedication to the CTC-CK’s main fundraising events: Festival of Giving, Over the Edge and Festival of Golf. “We are incredibly proud to be able to support and sponsor the CTC-CK. The work that they do for children in our community is truly special and important,” said Adam Lally, Operations Manager. “We were inspired by how much the people of Chatham-Kent have gotten behind their three great events; we are lucky to be a part of this great community.”

Pillow cases add a touch of comfort for patients

By Mary Beth Corcoran mary@chathamvoice.com

For the past five years, a small but industrious group of Chatham women have been adding a bit of colour and sense of home to sick children’s hospital rooms. The Chatham chapter of Ryan’s Case for Smiles, a group that sews colourful cotton pillow cases for seriously ill children in hospitals, was started by Wilma Noordan five years ago after her brother battled cancer. She saw an article in a quilting magazine about sewing pillow cases to give comfort to child cancer patients and knew that was something she could do to help. Noordan said her group currently has six women who make 110 pillow cases every two months for the children’s hospitals in Windsor and London, and they make them on request for the Chatham-Kent Health Alliance locally. “We have six members right now who get together every two months to show what we have done,” Noordan said. “The program was just for cancer patients but now we make them for any child with a serious illness in the hospital.” She noted at one time, they

were able to take the pillow cases onto the children’s floors, but due to concern with the transmission of germs to cancer patients, they now drop off the completed pillow cases to the front desk to be distributed. Ryan’s Case for Smiles began in 2007 in the U.S. in memory of Ryan Kerr, an inspirational young man who was diagnosed at 12 years of age with osteosarcoma. According to the group’s website, Ryan battled five recurrences of cancer, months of treatment and the amputation of his right leg, but never let it stop him from living his life to the fullest. Ryan’s mom Cindy started the charitable organization and there are now more than 120 chapters across Canada and the U.S. The focus of the organization is to “help kids feel better to heal better” and bring comfort and support to young patients and their families. “We started with a simple goal: to create and distribute whimsical pillowcases that give children an emotional boost and remind them that they are not defined by their illness,” the group’s website stated. Noordan said the local chapter is always open to new mem-

Raising awareness about farm safety Each year, the National Education Center for Agricultural Safety sponsors a National Farm Safety and Health Week to educate the public about the dangers of working on farms and promote safe practices in the agricultural industry. Agriculture remains one of the most dangerous industries in America, but many farm-related injuries and deaths can be prevented by making sure that workers receive proper training and equipment undergoes regular maintenance. To commemorate this year’s National Farm Safety and Health Week from September 16 to 22, here are some facts you might not know about agricultural safety. More than 240 agricultural workers are seriously injured on the job each day. In many cases, these accidents occur because workers were not following recommended safety protocols when using certain equipment or methods. Tractor accidents are the most common cause of farm-related deaths. Nearly half of all fatalities in the agriculture industry occur because of accidents involving vehicles, especially tractors. Farmers should make sure tractors have the latest safety features, such as rollover protective structures (ROPs), and operators should be well versed in the safety procedures recommended by the manufacturer.

Silos pose serious dangers. Working in silos puts workers in danger of suffocation by grain. Moving grain can become like quicksand and bury a person in seconds. Proper training and protective equipment can help workers stay safe when working with grain in confined spaces. Heat illness can be deadly. In many parts of the country, agricultural workers are at risk of becoming fatally ill from working in hot and humid conditions. During periods of extreme heat, workers should remember to stay hydrated and take breaks to rest in the shade.

However, Smith said he has received incredible support from the people in all of the communities he has visited. “Some beautiful country, met some great people,” he said. Smith is expecting to wrap-up his adventure in late September, when he reaches the east coast of the United States, outside of Boston, Mass. He started his journey in Oregon, with one bike tire in the Pacific Ocean. To date, he has raised more than $10,000 of his $100,000 goal through a crowd-funding campaign on GoFundMe.

Carmen McGregor lauded the Legion as an integral part of the community. Zone A3 Commander Irene Williams said the many events held during Legion Week demonstrate how members of the 10 area branches contribute to the community. Although recognizing the sacrifice and contribution Canada’s military men and women have made to our freedom remains at the core of the Legion, membership is no longer restricted to veterans of Canada’s armed forces. There are more than 1,400 Legion branches across Canada with in excess of a 250,000 members.

RS Technologies expanding

The Chatham Voice

Chatham-Kent’s RS Technologies Inc., the innovative composite utility pole manufacturer, is expanding production and adding a third shift. As a result, the company is actively looking to hire new staff and is hosting a job fair Sept. 24. The job fair will be located at the Municipal Centre in Tilbury and will run from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Located in Tilbury, RS Technologies is the industry leader with its patent-protected composite utility poles that have an expected service life of 80 years and require zero maintenance. The utility poles are both factory and life-tested to withstand tornadoes, ice storms, and hurricanes. “We have the best customers in the world, backed by the best staff in the world,” said Tracy McDonald, Human Resources Manager for RS Technologies Inc. “We are looking to bring more people on board that can really become part of the RS Technologies family.” RS Technologies is look-

ing to hire both general labourers and also skilled trades positions, including a maintenance millwright and maintenance electrician. The high performance poles produced by RS Technologies are used in transmission, distribution, and communication applications and offer a lighter, more durable and longer-lasting solution over wood, steel and concrete alternatives. In many instances, the environmentally friendly poles deliver the lowest total installed and lifecycle cost solution of any pole on the market. RS Technologies has over 400 customers globally and has installed over 20,000 poles in the field since 2003. For more information on the job fair and RS Technologies, please visit their website at www.RSpoles. comor on Facebook at https://www.facebook. com/rspoles/.

tham-Kent Music Schools Inc., formerly known as the Tilbury Music Centre, has seen positive growth, which has allowed them to open a second location at 530 Victoria Ave. in Chatham and several satellite locations. The schools offer music lessons on a variety of instruments including

piano, violin, guitar, and vocal lessons. In addition, they also sell entry-level musical instruments and accessories such as guitar strings and music stands. “The community has been very supportive and we are already accepting students for our first fall session in Chatham.” said James Mason, owner of

the Chatham-Kent Music Schools Inc. “Also, we are also going to be expanding into other areas of Chatham-Kent by offering lessons once a week in Thamesville, Merlin, and Wallaceburg starting early 2019. This is an exciting time for us. “Our growth has been steady and consistent.

We have over 170 music students now,” said Mason. “We started at 12 back in 2016. I employ six teachers and it’s going extremely well. We seem to be really filling a need where we are and we’re drawing students from as far away as Windsor.” Continued on page 20

How to spot a bully Children who commit acts of bullying or violence may do so for various reasons, such as the desire to fit in with a certain group or to get revenge for past bullying they themselves experienced. Whatever the case, they need help. But when no one’s speaking up, how can you tell if one child is bullying another? Some of the most frequently observed traits linked to bullying include: • The need to dominate and maintain a certain status within a group • A lack of interpersonal skills (difficulty making friends) • Impulsivity • Lack of empathy • Authoritarian or manipulative behaviors

137 Queen St, Chatham, ON N7M 2G7 Telephone: 519-351-1582

• The belief that violence is a good way to resolve conflicts • The unjustified belief that others are ill-willed HOW YOU CAN HELP If you find out that your child has been bullying others, remain calm and listen to what he or she has to say. While you shouldn’t condone the bullying, it’s important to be supportive. Explain that the consequences for this type of behavior are severe, both for the bully and his or her victims. Remind your child that it’s important to respect others, regardless of their differences. Work with your child to find ways he or she can express feelings of anger without having a negative impact on other people. Contact the school for further support, and if needed, don’t hesitate to seek professional help from a social worker or psychologist.

Paramedic Ride The Chatham Voice

Four Chatham-Kent paramedics taking part in the sixth annual Ontario Paramedic Ride cycling event this week. They are in the middle of cycling more than 500 kilometers from Toronto to Ottawa over four days. Paramedic Ride is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to strengthening the paramedic community. The organization raises funds in support of the Canadian Paramedic Memorial Foundation. The foundation is constructing a monument in Ottawa to commemorate those paramedics who have

lost their lives in the line of duty. This important monument will be a place where family, friends and colleagues can remember their loved ones and honour the dedication and sacrifice of all Canadian paramedics who have lost their lives. This annual event holds a significant importance for Chatham-Kent paramedics as they honour their fallen colleague, Paul Patterson who passed away in the line of duty on Feb. 25, 2007, while responding to a motor vehicle collision. This year the team has Laura Sanders, sister of the late Paul Patterson, join three other volunteering Chatham-Kent paramedics.

Support system helps business grow

Continued from page 19

Mason attributes a key element of his success to the Chatham-Kent Small Business Centre Starter Company Plus program and the $5,000 small business grant he received. “They were amazing. They’ve been a huge help to me all the way long, offering support and programs, asking questions and getting me in touch with resources,” he said. “Even if I had never received the grant, it would have been worth the three days I invested going to the program because I learned so much from the course.” As part of the Starter Company Plus program, Mason was coached in developing a business plan, working on the financials of his business to ensure it would be viable, and learning key strategies for success. “I’ve had the pleasure to work with James and the Chatham-Kent Music Schools Inc. for quite some time now and have been able to see them grow, adjust their plans based on customer needs, and really find a core focus for the business,” said Rosemarie Montgomery, Business

Consultant with the Small Business Centre. “The schools have such a wonderful dedication to building a vibrant musical community that it’s a delight to see them be successful.” Before opening his business, Mason spent 25 years managing large grocery stores and hundreds of employees before deciding to go into business for himself in August 2016.

Feedback sought on tariff impacts The Chatham Voice

Chatham-Kent Economic Development, in conjunction with local partners and government representatives, are seeking to learn more about the impact of steel, aluminum, and other tariffs on local business through an online survey. The survey is an outcome of a special Tariff Talks meeting held recently with Chatham-Kent and area businesses, manufacturers, and agricultural businesses.

Through roundtable discussions at the Tariff Talks meeting, attendees shared their thoughts and concerns regarding imposed and pending U.S. tariffs. Chatham-Kent businesses are invited to complete an online survey that shows the impact these tariffs may be having, or are having, on them and on our region. “The steel and metal fabrication industries have already

been hit hard by U.S. tariffs and the threat of tariffs against the auto sector continues to linger,” said Geoff Wright, Economic Development Officer with Chatham-Kent Economic Development, in a media release. “The Tariff Talks meeting was one tool we are using to engage our business community on vital topics. The survey is another way we are working to reach even more people on this criti-

The summary results will be aggregated and shared with government officials. All results will be anonymous as to protect anyone who provides input and all individual responses are confidential.

Homeless issue not going away

Continued from page 1

He said he spent six years living on the streets in Toronto. “I was homeless basically from 18-24. When turned 18, I went from shelter to shelter to shelter,” he said. “I don’t want anybody to feel what I felt. It feels like you have no options.” He moved to Chatham in May of 2017. Fournier said his time spent homeless in Toronto tested his will to live. “I was homeless; I was tired and I wanted to give up. I have scars on my body from hurting myself. I was in so much emotional pain,” he said. “If I didn’t have my dad, I literally would have committed suicide.” Coming to Chatham, where his father lived, saved Fournier’s life. “The second I moved here, the feeling in the community … you can

feel the love,” he said. But love cannot conquer all. Where in Toronto there were many support structures in place to help the homeless, Fournier said there are so many people trying to manipulate the system that those in need find it difficult to get the necessary help. Here, the manipulators may be gone, but so too is much of the support structure. “A loving community needs tools to love and help each other,” Fournier said. “ Today, Fournier is in a better place. He said he lives in a rooming house with his girlfriend, is on Ontario Works and is addressing his mental health issues. But getting to where he is, despite the move to Chatham, wasn’t easy. “There aren’t many options around here. There

wasn’t even a shelter down here (in 2017),” he said. Jeff Parker, supervisor at Chatham Hope Haven, said the men’s shelter only opened last November. There are 10 beds, but two are kept in reserve in case the police need to bring someone in an emergency. The eight other beds are quite often filled each night, Parker said, adding more are needed. And additional supports are required. “People need to know this is a reality,” he said. “We’ll take anybody in but we’re not counsellors. We can get them in touch with people who can counsel.” Willis Pollett, client services co-ordinator for Hope Haven, said providing support for the homeless men who come in to the facility is not just

about getting them some food and a place to sleep. “We have one on ones to see why they are homeless,” he said. “A homeless person is not just an addict, or out of work or on ODSP. The problem is they are homeless; they aren’t hopeless.”

Fournier believes there is no excuse for the lack of support for local homeless; it’s a lack of attention. “A road costs thousands of dollars; so does mental health. What’s more important?” he asked. Final numbers from

the weekend fundraiser weren’t released as of press time. Volunteers are needed at Hope Haven. Shifts are 7 p.m. to 11 p.m., 11 p.m. to 7 a.m. or the full 7 p.m. to 7 a.m. shift. Stop by at 183 Wellington St. W. to learn more.
