Canadian Cowgirls shine at IPM

Chatham’s Google connection By Mary Beth Corcoran mary@chathamvoice.com

The Canadian Cowgirls and their horses perform during the high temperatures for visitors of the International Plowing Match their opening day in Pain Court. See story on page 3 and additional photos on page 21.

This September marks 20 years since two Stanford Ph.D. students launched a new search engine with a bold mission to organize the world’s information and make it universally accessible and useful. Google has changed a great deal in the intervening years, with tens

of thousands of employees and seven products that are used by more than a billion people every month. In Canada, Google has been a presence since 2005, with new offices opening up in Kitchener-Waterloo in 2016. One Chatham native who calls those offices home is Googler Shawn Wallace.

Wallace loves working for Google Continued from page 1

Wallace, whose official title is Technical Lead for Google Cloud, thinks “home” is amazing. Born and raised in Chatham, Wallace graduated from Ursuline College in 1991. “While I was in high school, we didn’t actually have a lot of tech classes but at that time period it wasn’t as popular as it was now. It was more Shawn Wallace people learning on their own,” Wallace explained. but he is very happy to be “When I was four years where he is now. “It’s amazing.

business to education to personal use – and we can do things that improve people’s lives.” In the early days of his start at Google, Wallace said he learned right away that from the leadership on down, the company is constantly looking at ways to reinvent things and how to be better. “You never hear, ‘Well, we’ve always done it this way’; it’s always ‘How can we do it better?’” he noted. At the Kitchener-Waterloo offices, there are many perks of the job, according to Wallace, that the people who come on tours are shown. And without a doubt, he said those perks are incredible. “We get a bed, three meals a day from some of the most amazing chefs I’ve ever met, there’s a gym and there’s a lot of things. And those are great, don’t get me wrong. But really, the greatest thing here is people really treat each other with a lot of respect. You never feel like you’re just a cog in the wheel, you feel like you’re important,” Wallace said. “And if you have an issue, there are a lot of people who actually care about it.” At a time when tech is taking the bulk of the blame for removing personal, face-to-face inter-

And especially at a place like Google, that’s what we look for. We look for passionate people,” he said. “I can teach people to program in any language, but I can’t teach passion. If you don’t love doing it, then it’s just another job.” Every day at Wallace’s job, he said he basically manages other people and it’s his job to keep his team “happy and healthy, productive and not stuck on something.” He said he also is passionate about working on the lack of diversity in tech, as is Google as a whole. “Within companies like Google and Facebook and the big tech companies, they are primarily male, and restricted to a few nationalities and we know this doesn’t produce the best product, it doesn’t produce the best teams and it doesn’t produce the best results,” Wallace said. “At Google that’s not something we strive to do. We want to make things sensible to everyone,” Wallace noted.

IPM celebrates successful week The Chatham Voice

The final day at the 2018 International Plowing Match and Rural Expo in Pain Court, Chatham-Kent, saw families by the thousands attend for BMO Kid’s Day, with free entry, a pancake breakfast, and children’s activities. Plowing competitions wrapped up Saturday

with a junior plowing competition and, at 11 a.m., IPM 2018 Official Mascot Tobe Cobe Jr. led a vintage fire truck parade, courtesy of Chatham-Kent FireFest organizers. There’s a new Ontario Queen of the Furrow – Derika Nauta of Tavistock (Oxford County), who was crowned on Friday evening during the

IPM 2018 Celebration of Excellence. In other events, a new IPM record for Most People Eating Corn on The Cob at One Time was established, with 1,125 people taking part. At the closing ceremony, there was a real sense of community achievement, according to organizers. “It’s been a whirlwind; it’s been a fun time,” said

Dave Murray, President of the Ontario Plowmen’s Association, in a media release. “Thank you to the community for coming out and supporting this, also to people across the province. Now’s the time that we turn the reins over to our friends in West Nipissing. From an Ontario Plowmen’s perspective, we’re there to help them

and made it another successful event.” This year’s co-chairs Darrin Canniff and Leon Leclair noted how people from all over Chatham-Kent came together for the project. “I am ecstatic with the support from the community,” said Leclair. “The volunteers were top-notch, bar none! They deserve all the credit. Darrin and I had the best jobs ever.” “We had over a thousand amazing volunteers,” said Canniff. “I got to meet hundreds of people in this community who stepped up. I always knew there were many wonderful people in Chatham-Kent but this event has taken that perception to the next level!”

“The rural-urban divide doesn’t exist here in Chatham-Kent,” added Leclair. “Half of our executive team members are urban and the other half are rural.” In the final ceremonies, representatives of Chatham-Kent presented Canada, Ontario and OPA flags to their counterparts from the 2019 IPM in Verner (West Nipissing). In a traditional IPM ceremony, Chatham-Kent landowner and Mayor of IPM 2018 Tented City, Jean Marie Laprise, presented Daniel Olivier, Co-chair of the 2019 Tented City in Verner, with a gift of fertile local soil. “It’s all about the land and the life we cultivate from it,” said Laprise.

Online voting period extended

Municipal officials say an error in printing voter information cards has resulted in the municipality extending the period for online voting in next month’s municipal election.

The cards (currently being distributed through Canada Post) correctly indicated the dates of the originally planned Internet voting (Oct 1 at 10 a.m. to Oct. 14 at 10 p.m.), but the day of the week preceding those dates is inaccurate.

October 1 is actually a Monday (the VIN cards say it is a Tuesday), while Oct. 14 is a Sunday (the VIN cards say it is a Monday). In order to minimize any confusion these cards may cause with electors, the municipality will make

Internet voting available for the longest time that could be possibly interpreted from the cards. As a result, online voting will begin Oct. 1 at 10 a.m. and will close Oct. 15 at 10 p.m. For more info, visit chatham-kent.ca.

The increase in new supply notwithstanding, overall supply is still at record lows. Active residential listings numbered just 241 units at the end of August, down 20.7 per cent from the end of August 2017. This situation may in fact become the new normal, resulting in higher prices for entry-level homes. It may be necessary for builders in our area to consider basic entry level homes, without the bells and whistles, to allow first time local buyers to enter the market, which may be multi-units, semi-detached, or townhouses, Carroll said. “It is critical to provide the dream of owning a home to our local clientele, who desire home ownership,” he said.

During his Residency, Sytnik was nominated for the Med III Awards for Resident Mentorship and Professionalism, taught the Surgical Skills Session for first-year residents and presented a number of professional posters and presentations at conferences throughout Manitoba, Ontario and Quebec.

Most recently, Sytnik completed locums in Ontario and the Yukon Territory. “CKHA was an easy choice as it offers a welcoming community with great resources for both career development and recreation. I love nature, so the proximity to local lakes is appealing and there are many opportunities for outdoor activities in Chatham-Kent.

SPECIAL RARE RINGETTE EVENT THIS WEEKEND A big event is going on in Chatham this Sunday, September 30th. A very special group from the Ontario Ringette Association is coming to town. The rare opportunity event they are calling “Come Try Ringette”, is a free event for all ages. Ringette is one of the fastest growing sports in Canada, mostly due to its fast pace game and strong team comradely. Similar to Hockey, Ringette is also very much different at the same time. “In the past few years, we are seeing a tremendous increase in adult rec leagues with both men and women, as well as a very large growth in children entering the game in the beginning years,” states Lachlan Kennedy, PR Chatham Ringette Association. One major attraction for parents is the much lower cost than Hockey, with Ringette starting at only $400. Another reason for the growth, is that although it is open to both boys and girls, it is primarily a girls sport. This is great for the girls to have the “girl power” in the dressing room, at the hotels, in tournaments (a favorite for the girls) and when the team goes for dinner after a weekend game. Chatham has developed a name for itself, for it’s incredible learn to skate program. “Penny” and her team have the other communities talking when our teams are a consistently a knotch above in skating abilities when they start to play the game. In fact, many young boys enter our learn to skate program before heading over to hockey, and the results are noticeable. Ask around your friends and coworkers and you will find that Ringette really is something special, with amazing memories for the kids and lifelong friendships made along the way.

Lagging behind STEM courses are designed to educate students in four specific disciplines — science, technology, engineering and mathematics, and while the Ontario curriculum is making headway in this regard, it falls far behind in real time. In a competitive, fast-moving and tech-based society, our students who are interested in careers in the STEM sector are having to look outside the classroom to get the real-world experience they need. In a province of have and have not school boards, bigger urban areas often have a leg up on our students, with more funding and more opportunities to work with industry giants and funded or sponsored extracurricular programs. Organizations like FIRST Robotics Canada that offer students opportunities to work in teams to build and code robots, with the help of teacher and community mentors, are a huge success. Why? Because teachers such as Jennifer Torrence or Googlers like Shawn Wallace volunteer their time to mentor students eager to learn more than a regular classroom generally allows. And St. Clair College and Google who provide the space and sponsorship to make the programs happen. As Wallace said, kids who have a chance to be on a robotics team learn more over a few years than they could ever know coming out of Grade 12, and it gives them not only a chance to find their passion for it, but to learn and grow at an accelerated rate. It also gives them a boost over their fellow students when it comes to university applications. Drama students have school plays or musicals, athletes have school teams and though limited, artistic students have dedicated art teachers who put on juried shows. For students in the STEM stream, options are more limited to let them really get a hands-on feel for science, engineering and technology. Usually, those opportunities rely on teachers who go above and beyond to mentor them, find programs and sponsors and help them get their hands dirty. So kudos to people such as Torrance and Wallace and all the other mentors and sponsors out there who take the time to help kids find their passion and the chance to do the work and learn.

Opinion

Leaving a trail all the way home Sir: While reading the story of Lenovers 80th anniversary in The Chatham Voice (“Lenovers celebrates 80 years,” in the Sept. 6 Voice), it brought back memories of going to the abattoir with my dad in 1955. We were new Canadians and since my dad was a butcher and sausage maker in the old country, Holland, he was soon back to his old trade of making sausages. Many Dutch immigrants lived in the Chatham area and in 1955 dad was back making

blood and liver sausages. We lived at Ruston’s Corner, and with the station wagon he had bought, drove to Chatham for supplies. One stop was Lenovers abattoirs on the east end of Park Avenue by McGregor Creek. One day my brother, who just recently got his driver’s licence, and I were sent to Lenovers to pick up a pail of blood. We put the pail behind the front seat on the turned-down floor of the station wagon and drove

from the parking lot to go over the onecar-wide bridge of McGregor Creek. Just then, a car was coming from the other direction and my brother gunned the vehicle. The pail with blood tipped over and spilled out the back of the station wagon. Blood trailed us all the way home to Ruston’s Corners. That was not the end of it. Around suppertime, a knock on the door and two police officers asked to see the person who

drove the station wagon. They had followed the blood trail to our house and wanted some explanation. In the few words of English we knew, we explained what had happened. They laughed at the whole thing once they heard that no murder was committed. The worst was the smell that lingered in the station wagon for the rest of the summer, even after scrubbing it several times. Wilhelmina Wolting Chatham-Kent

Other funding options for parking? Sir: I am a dialysis patient and I read with concerned interest your article in the Chatham Voice, “The price of a hospital visit,” Aug. 30, for being both complete and accurate. What Lori Marshall (CKHA president and CEO) told you in the interview is a long ways from complete and therefore inaccurate.

I am enclosing all the related correspondence to you, and you be the judge. From the info that I found out through asking questions of the nursing staff – keep in mind that these staff nurses make a lot more money than dialysis patients and oncology

patients, who for the most part are limited to disability and or old age pension cheques once a month – that they pay $30 per month for parking which is automatically deducted from their pay, regardless how many times per month that they use it. There is a lot of part-time

staff at the hospital. The following statement is mere suggestion: If you are a full time registered nurse working a four-day workweek and having a week off every month, it would cost you $30 per month for parking or $2.50 per day. Continued on page 8

Dinner for Ebony The Chatham Voice

A local woman is working hard to organize a Spaghetti Dinner fundraiser for Chatham teen Ebony Vandenbogaerde Oct. 20 at First Presbyterian Church in downtown Chatham. Renee Kuipers, of Graceful Beauty Medical Spa, is hosting the event and is busy getting local donors and sponsors lined up for raffle items and a 50/50 draw. Vandenbogaerde is the 12-yearold girl who underwent surgery in April to remove a tumour from her spine that left her a paraplegic. The young girl is currently at a rehab facility in Toronto where she is learning to do everyday activities from a wheelchair. Kuipers said she is happy with the generosity of local businesses and community organizations who have offered donations and use of their facilities, and anyone who would like to help out in that regard can contact her at 226-229-9506. Tickets for the dinner are $15 per person and are available by calling Kuipers or at The Chatham Voice, 71 Sass Rd., Unit 4.

Pricey parking Continued from page 6

Funny, that is the same price that they are expecting dialysis and oncology to pay provided that they have this 30-day hospital pass. There is a question that has been running through my mind concerning this parking fiasco. The hospital says that donations from John Q Public have dried up. So be it. My question is, there are monies left to dialysis through last will and testaments that go into a slush fund if these funds are not carefully earmarked in a will. This fund from what I understand is controlled by hospital administration, i.e. Lori Marshall, CEO. Past experience has taught that, even getting anything for the dialysis unit is tough. What I want to submit to you is: isn’t the reserved parking that is to be used by dialysis patients only a part of the dialysis unit? Why can’t the last will and testament monies that are donated to dialysis be used for the purpose of parking? Thanks for allowing me to vent a little. I hope some of what I have said is of some use. I would also like to inform you that as of February of next year, I will have been on dialysis for 15 years. John Cracknell Wallaceburg

2018 Municipal Election

Meet the candidates The Chatham Voice

Editor’s note: In this week’s paper, we are introducing the mayoral candidates and council candidates for Ward 6 (Chatham). Each has a space for a short explanation on why they are running and what their platform involves. We asked each candidate 12 questions, covering a variety of issues. Yes or no answers are included in graphics on the ensuing pages, but for detailed answers, we encourage our readers to visit our website, chathamvoice.com. In next week’s paper, we’ll have information and answers from the candidates for council in Wards 1-5, as well as introductory information on school board trustee candidates.

Mayoral candidates Harold Atkinson: I’m running for mayor because things are bad here and getting worse.

Our population has declined 8,000, taxes are high, our roads are disgusting, my old schools (HHM - Naahii now, RDHS) are going to close soon. No one is doing a thing about it so it’s up to me. My proposal is 50 per cent industrial, 25 per cent commercial, 10 per cent farm, 10 per cent residential property tax cuts. This creates jobs and you should decide what to do with your money. This along with my Community Fund, College Campus Fund, road repaving plan, guard posts, traffic lights and debt repayment plan should make us attractive to those of us here and our neighbours. It will finally make sense to move here. Please e-mail haratkinson@gmail.com for details including where the tax cuts come from. Darrin Canniff: Over the past two decades, I have dedicated many hours

volunteering to make Chatham-Kent a better place to live work and play. I have created and organized many events to support local charities and have sat on many boards. I have a business degree and have held various jobs in senior positions which have all helped me to gain extensive experience as a leader in business and non-profit sectors. All of these experiences combined have prepared me for the role of Mayor and I am ready to dedicate myself on a full-time basis to making Chatham-Kent an even better place to live, work and play. I believe in this community and I believe we can all work together as one to benefit all who live here. I want to set priorities and build consensus as part of a proactive municipal team, reacting and responding to the needs of the community. Randy Hope: As may-

or, I have worked hard to stimulate the economy, we achieved results in the right direction. Unemployment is 5.6 per cent, lowest in a decade, from a peak rate of 14 per cent when Navistar closed. A recent survey indicates employers have 650 new jobs available. We have cut debt in half; the community’s population is increasing; recently announced two projects creating 300 jobs. A successful track record indicates that my qualifications and experience will ensure the community moves forward. Our “pay as you go� strategy is working. Improvements in firehalls, arenas, trails, roads and bridges serve residents well. I want to lead Chatham-Kent to a better future over the next four years. I have a passion to see Chatham-Kent’s future success. We have set the direction and strategy for success. My experience, leadership and past re-

sults indicate that I am the best candidate to lead the community. Alysson Storey: Chatham-Kent made me who I am today, and I’m ready to give back. I was born in Chatham,

spent summers in South Kent, and married into West Kent. My family includes small business owners, teachers, architects and farmers. I’ve been a municipal manager. Continued on page 11

Meet the candidates Continued from page 9

I’ve worked for the provincial government in Toronto, a small non-profit in Chatham, and a successful entrepreneur in Blenheim. I’ve also been “between jobs” like so many others. Through it all, my roots here provided a strong foundation to lead a confident and fulfilling life. I’m committed to Tr a n s f o r m a t i o n a l Change: Making Chatham-Kent a place people want to live, not leave. Where citizens feel heard, not ignored. Where doors are opened instead of slammed shut. Transforming our community into a true reflection of who we want to be. There are no barriers to what we can accomplish by working together. Chatham-Kent, it’s our time. Allan Traylor: I’m all about innovation, employment, and Return on investments. And proper development of our youth. I have three grandchildren in Chatham-Kent, I care about their future. I have a past of negotiating contracts, of insurance. And I have been an anti-drug educator here in the past 1988,89,90,91& part of 92. And to this day I have young adults thanking me for my teachings. If this position of being Mayor was about me, I would want the wage of $100,000+, but I want $39,000 to start.

Ward 6

Les Banks: I am running to put a stop to the bad decision making, waste, and a lack of proper oversight. I want to bring transparency, accountability, and prosperity back to C-K. I want the people to actually have a voice

and be heard, not just placated. I want to make sure things like the Keil St Bridge, 5th St bridge, 3rd St. bridge, the railroad, the industrial park, the condo on King St., and the decimation of the once beautiful Tecumseh Park do not happen again. It is time for change. Michael Bondy: I hope for your support on Oct. 22 as I believe I have been an effective councillor over the last eight years. I do my best to help citizens when they have problems with the city. I was for the hospice, fixing Memorial Arena and the new animal shelter. I was against the railroad, raising taxes and keeping the current level of councillors. I will continue to be a common sense voice for the people of Chatham. Thank-you for the opportunity to serve you. Marjorie Crew: Community involvement is something I have always valued deeply. It is very important to me that to continue to have a positive and responsible role in strengthening and moving Chatham-Kent forward. Chatham-Kent must have a diverse group of representatives to make important decisions that affect all of our citizens. I want to work to build a progressive, vibrant and safe community that will be welcoming to new citizens as well as retain our future generations. Whatever the challenge or direction, Chatham-Kent 2018 council will need to work together and communicate with one another in a positive, meaningful way to produce outcomes that benefits us all as a whole.

Real Estate FAQ’s

Q: Does it matter if I come along for the home inspection? Can’t I get all the info I need from the inspector’s report?

A: A home inspection report is a valuable document that can help you understand what you’re buying. But there’s still a lot to be gained by attending the inspection in person. First of all, it’s important to remember that a home inspection is first and foremost a visual examination of a home’s systems. The inspection can identify issues with a home’s foundation, electrical, plumbing, roofing, heating

and air conditioning systems. But a home inspector can’t knock down walls to see what’s behind them, or do any other sort of invasive investigation. Typically, they won’t move furniture or storage boxes in order to see or access part of the home. When you come along for the inspection, the inspector can point out details as you move around the home and examine different aspects of the property. You can also ask follow-up questions about the issues they spot, to find out how serious they think it is, or what kind of repairs they think might be needed. It’s good to know which

Province to scrap Green Energy Act The Chatham Voice

The province’s Green Energy Act will soon be a thing of the past. That’s the word from local MPP Monte McNaughton, Minister of Infrastructure, and Greg Rickford, Minister of Energy. They made a joint announcement of the introduction of legislation at Queen’s Park that would spike the act. According to Ford government officials, the original Green Energy Act led to the feed-in-tariff program and skyrocketing electricity rates for

Ontario families, and took away powers from municipalities to stop the energy projects in their communities. “Well-connected energy insiders made fortunes putting up windfarms and solar panels that gouge hydro consumers in order to generate electricity that Ontario doesn’t need,” McNaughton, MPP for Lambton-Kent-Middlesex, said in a media release. The ministers announced that the government has introduced legislation that, if passed,

will strike the Green Energy Act from the province’s books. This will include repealing provisions that stripped away the power of local municipalities to block unwanted wind and solar farms. “The Green Energy Act allowed the previous government to trample over the rights of families, businesses and municipalities across rural Ontario,” McNaughton said. “But we believe the people of Ontario should have the final say about what gets built in their communities.”

such as a surgical mask and infuser; a volunteer nametag and access card; a typical grocery bill for the week, and current event posters. The time capsule will be interned behind a brick in the Courtyard half wall with a plaque giving instructions to open in 100 years. “We are also recogniz-

ing a milestone today,” said Jessica Smith executive director, Chatham-Kent Hospice. “We have recently cared for our 500th resident since opening in April 2016. It’s been quite an honour to care for 500 families from our community and being a part of their life journey.”

Hospice reaches to the future The Chatham Voice

What will hospice care look like in 100 years? We will never know, but the hospice in the future will have a good understanding of how Chatham-Kent Hospice operated in 2018 with the information being shared through a time capsule. “We had the idea of sharing what a typical day is like at the hospice by including a number of items we use every day and a brief description of them,” Jodi Maroney, executive director, Chatham-Kent Hospice Foundation, said in a release. “It would be really interesting to be there when the time capsule is opened and see how hospice care changes over the years.” Some of the items to be included in the time capsule include clinical items

Sponsored by repairs should be done immediately, and which ones can wait a few years. You can expect similar information in the formal report, but when you’re present on-site you can get more context, which means you can better understand what it means for the property as a whole. Typically, an inspection takes two to three hours, and when you’re considering a home you’ll be living in for years, it’s a valuable way to spend your time. The inspectors typically provide tips and suggestions about the home that dont’t make it into the report, because they are not critical issues.

Like preventative maintenance ideas for example. Just as there’s info you’ll get from the in-person inspection that you might not get in the report, there are a lot of important details in the report that might not come up verbally as you’re doing your walkabout. Reading the report in full will further increase your understanding of the property, and it can serve as a useful reference for years afterwards. If your offer to purchase the property was conditional on a satisfactory home inspection, after the inspection you will need to decide how to

proceed. The guidance of your broker or salesperson can be a major asset. They can negotiate with the sellers to resolve any issues that the inspection uncovered. For minor issues, the seller may promise to make repairs before you move in. For more serious issues, they might agree to reduce the selling price to make up for the cost of repairs for example. There’s no denying that a home inspection can be a valuable part of the buying process. By attending the inspection and reading the report thoroughly, you can ensure that you’re making the most of it.

2018 Municipal Election

Meet the candidates: Ward 6 (Chatham)

Continued from page 11

I have always used my life experience, integrity and honesty when making decisions on behalf of our citizens and I will continue to do this for you as your Ward 6 Councillor in Chatham-Kent. Penelope Duchesne: I am 45 years old, a business owner and bilingual. One of my priorities is to keep tax and water bills in check and to stop these ever sky-rocketing increases. Many residents are struggling with the ever-rising costs. I have spoken to people who pay $7,000 in taxes a year and retirees on fixed pensions who cannot afford these constant hikes from council and assessments. Lately we talk a lot about affordable housing. Keeping tax and utility bills affordable is part of that discussion. Our municipality is very

well staffed. Therefore, I would like to see more results in our efforts in job creation, business attraction and innovation. Let’s open Chatham for business and cut the zealous red tape! Also, on my list, tourism, jobs and infrastructure. I always use a common-sense approach and integrity in all my decisions. Amy Finn: I was born and raised in Blenheim by my father Art (resides in Chatham), a Dutch Immigrant, my mother Karen (passed away at 48) from Ridgetown. I have lived in Chatham for 30 years as single mom with four boys and facing challenges in life as a team. Chatham’s first female police officer, I retired after 30 years. I volunteer with Goodfellows, Big Sisters, Soup Kitchens, Cops for Cancer, Children’s Safety Village,

Parent Council, Shop with a Cop and whenever able to help someone in need. I am new to municipal politics but I care deeply about this municipality and all of its residents. Affordable housing, infrastructure, accessibility, economic development and mental health and addiction programs are all of importance.

budget and have made presentations to the budget committee during the public consultations, presenting areas where I felt that there were ways to save budget dollars. I am running to ensure that everyone who is looking for a place to open a business, build a home or start a family can do it here in Chatham-Kent.

Don Fuoco: Community service has been a lifelong passion of mine. I have served on many boards, both at the municipal and the non-profit level, in various capacities. I have 23 years of service in the banking industry. I would have started a “political” run earlier in life, however, I felt it was more important to raise my children versus fulfilling my own political aspirations. I have taken the time over the past few years to review our municipal

Kirk Hooker: I was born and raised in Chatham Kent and have been married to my wife Dianne for 27 years and have two children, Taylor and Jake. I have worked with the family business for over 30 years. I’m not afraid to tackle any problems head on. I’m a proven problem solver and team leader using hard work and common sense. I’m running for council because I feel I can be the voice of the people and I can also listen to what the people want and will fight

3300 3300

for them. I also am tired of the crazy spending and feel that I will stand up to administration and fight for what is right. If elected I promise to always be true to myself and the people of Chatham Kent and always have our best interest at heart.

Ryan Jackson: I am 31 years old, married and have three children. My kids are 10, nine and six years old and I am running for council because I don’t want my children moving away when they are older like many of our youth have been doing. If elected to council, I will help build Chatham-Kent to be a safe place for families, for youth to enjoy and a community of choice to retire. Chris June: I bring experienced leadership with a new vision. It isn’t enough to “love where you are from.”

Loving your community is just the price of admission. Being involved in this community should be a prerequisite to serving it. I encourage voters to look to candidates that have “walked the walk” through their leadership that have earned the trust, the respect and the confidence of others by building constructive relationships. Chose candidates that have proven their ability to lead successful change with tangible outcomes in this community, not elsewhere. I’ve been doing that for more than 15 years. Karen Kirkwood Whyte: I have worked and volunteered in all three sectors (business, government and non-profit) of the community, and developed numerous collaborative partnerships and community building initiatives.

Health Alliance honoured for its donor encouragement The Chatham Voice

Chatham-Kent Health Alliance (CKHA) received an award recently from the Trillium Gift of Life Network (TGLN) for its outstanding efforts to integrate organ and tissue donation into quality end-of-life care. TGLN is Ontario’s organ and tissue donation and transplantation agency. CKHA was presented with the Provincial Conversion Rate Award by Janet MacLean, Vice President of Clinical Donation Services, TGLN. The award is granted to organizations that meet

or exceed the TGLN’s target of a 58-per-cent conversion rate. The conversion rate represents the percentage of potential organ donors that went to become actual donors. Organ donation is a complex process and conversion rate reflects how well TGLN and CKHA work together to save lives. In 2017/18, CKHA surpassed the target to achieve a conversion rate of 67 per cent. “As a designated Trillium Gift of Life Network hospital since 2012, CKHA has worked closely with TGLN to put best practices in place that

nation. Some people believe that their age or medical condition prevents them from being a donor. In actuality, age does not prevent someone from becoming a donor, and each potential donor is assessed at the time of death for medical suitability. Others may not have registered under the misguided assumption that doctors will not work hard to save a life if that patient is a registered donor, but in fact, the first priority is always to save a life. Donation is only considered after all life-saving efforts are exhausted, there is no chance of recovery and the family accepts the diagnosis of death. Chatham-Kent exceeds the provincial average of registered organ donors with a registration rate of 47 per cent, ranking 52 out of 170 communities in Ontario.

Hetherington wants to replace Shipley

By Bruce Corcoran bruce@chathamvoice.com

A familiar face – and voice – announced this week he would like to replace Lambton-Kent Middlesex MP Bev Shipley in Ottawa: Greg Hetherington. The owner of CKXS FM and longtime “voice of Chatham-Kent” said he plans to seek the nomination to represent the Conservative Party for the riding for the next federal election. Shipley, who has represented the riding since 2006, announced in July

Greg Hetherington

that he would not seek re-election. Hetherington hopes to fill those shoes. “A lot of people don’t

know of my interest in politics. I’ve thought about it for 10-12 years,” he said. “When Bev announced his retirement, it perked my ears up. My wife and I have talked for about two months on how it would work. “This seems like the best time for me with the way my work is going. The company I run is running well and has great people behind it.” Hetherington has operated his business since

2009 in Wallaceburg and lives in the area. “I want to be a bigger part of the community and this is a way to do it: Be a voice in Ottawa and hopefully obtain funding to help our region improve,” he said. He knows he has a big riding – geographically larger than Prince Edward Island – to appeal to. He also knows that had this opportunity come up a decade ago, he would

not have been a good fit for the job. “I think 10 years ago, if I thought about putting my name in, I wasn’t ready. I definitely would have been a failure,” he said. “I know so much more now, running a business, and getting to know the community and this riding.” Hetherington said he believes in fiscal responsibility and that the Trudeau government is “spending way too much

money. That’s the biggest problem our country faces. I’m fiscally responsible. That’s how I run my life – looking at budgets. A big part of why I want to run for the Conservatives is that they are fiscally responsible.” Hetherington said if he wins the nomination, he’d pull himself off the air at his radio station, as he doesn’t want it to appear as if he’d use it as a personal political platform.

The Chatham Voice

The five families arriving in Chatham-Kent indicated at the border their intention to live in Ontario, and have chosen our community as the place to settle with their children. The individuals and families arriving in Chatham are asylum seekers who will be assessed by the Immigration and Refugee Board of Canada to determine their eligibility to remain in Canada. The federal government has booked rooms for the families in a Chatham-Kent hotel for the next eight weeks to avoid any unintended impact to local emergency housing capacity while the families work to find longer-term housing solutions in the community.

Adult Language and Learning will provide settlement services to the families, including assisting each family to access the community supports available to them in Chatham-Kent. Adult Language and Learning is Chatham-Kent’s settlement service provider. They are a vital piece of the settlement process for any family seeking to immigrate and resettle in Chatham-Kent. April Rietdyk, Chatham-Kent General Man-

ager, Community Human Services, said the municipality has been working with the Federal Government to ensure a smooth transfer for the individuals. “I met with each family on their arrival to Chatham and spent time with them over the weekend,” she said in a media release. “They cannot express enough how thankful they are for the kindness and compassion shown to them over their first few days in Chatham-Kent.”

Instead, nominations for this position will be open until Oct. 15 at 2 p.m. If more than one candidate seeks the position, an election will be held Nov. 29. Nominations are open and may be filed with the city clerk during regular business hours until Nomination Day.

C-K part of asylum project

Chatham-Kent is working with the federal government as Canada fulfils its international obligations to those who are seeking asylum. As a welcoming community, municipal officials expressed interest in helping, and has the capacity to provide the necessary supports for this initial pilot. Chatham-Kent will begin with just a few families. Municipal officials say this will give the chance to see how families settle and allow the municipality and the federal government to learn what works best when settling families into smaller municipalities.

Possible by-election

Electors eligible to vote for a trustee for the local French public school board may wind up voting in a Nov. 29 by-election. One of two candidates for the positions for Conseil scolaire Viamonde is no longer eligible to seek election to the office. As a result, voters will

The benefits of getting in touch with your creative side

Creativity is often considered to be synonymous with making art. However, being creative doesn’t just mean devoting yourself to activities such as painting, drawing or knitting. It also means being resourceful, a problem-solver, and coming up with interesting projects or initiatives. In all cases, engaging your creativity allows you to develop cognitive faculties, improve your ability to reason and concentrate, avoid boredom and, for activities involving fine motor skills, to work on hand-eye coordination. Furthermore, being creative can lead to a feeling of satisfaction and thereby improve self-esteem. In short, there are many good reasons to foster your creativity. But how to go about developing it? Some feasible approaches include: landscaping a garden, redecorating a room in your house, making mandalas, going on cultural outings, inventing stories for children, or even just letting your mind wander on a nature walk. There are countless options! Simply consider what feeds your imagination and stimulates your curiosity.

2018 Municipal Election

Meet the candidates: Ward 6 (Chatham)

Continued from page 17

I believe that I bring a unique perspective to municipal cCouncil - one that will endeavor to ensure that the voices of local citizens throughout Chatham-Kent are heard when key decisions are made that affect them. Don ‘Sparky’ Leonard: Married to Laurie Moskalyk, I have made Chatham Kent my home since 2010. As I watch my daughter Lauren, my son Brandon along with his wife Annalyssa and granddaughter, Kiera grow and thrive, it is important for me to provide a leadership role in our community, making Chatham Kent the best place to live, work and play. My leadership skills and success in the business world will be key in continuing to move the municipality forward. We require a voice that promises fiscal responsibility and a commitment to enhance both work and play here in C-K. My previous municipal council experience, as well as my history of community volunteerism, local leadership and a strong business acumen will be invaluable to the residents of Ward 6 as I represent the Chatham-Kent on our newly elected council. Brock McGregor: Over the past four years, it has been a privilege to represent residents of Ward 6. I see tremendous opportunity in our community, and believe we require innovative, open-minded, and transparent government in order to move our municipality forward. Having a young family, running a small business, and being involved in a number of community initiatives has provided me with a unique perspective with which to view our municipality. That perspective is required on council in order to attract and retain young families, and facilitate small business growth. I care deeply about the success of our community, and firmly believe I have the skill set to be an important part of municipal leadership capable of seizing opportunity, facing challenges, and responding to the needs of our community. Doug Sulman: In this election, seven incumbents chose not to run again. Of the remaining 10, four have only one term of experience, with the possibility of a rookie mayor. Chatham-Kent has over 1,000 employees and a budget of over $300 million; it is a large, complicated municipality. Now more than ever our community needs a councillor who brings proven council leadership, experience, knowl-

edge and common sense. I am seeking re-election to serve you the people with just those qualifications. My record is that of having fought against wasted spending on things like a railroad and foreign trips. I have spoken up for the people and fought for your right to have a say about how you want city hall to operate when I brought the motion to give you a vote on the size of council. I brought motion after motion in

budget that shrank proposed tax increases.

Gordon Thomas: I’m running for municipal council because I think that we can do better to ensure that Chatham-Kent can meet our current and future needs. Our current reactive responses have not served us well and a proactive approach to delivering services, maintaining infrastructure, and adapting to demographic shifts within the

community is needed. I have the drive and energy to work for and on behalf of residents to keep Chatham-Kent moving in a positive direction, and a passion to work with residents to ensure council’s decisions begin with you. I believe that sound policy begins with listening to residents and true fiscal responsibility requires an understanding of where we are over-delivering, and underperforming on our services.

I pledge to work hard for you and towards a CK that can provide for our seniors, has a transportation system that works for residents, and is a safe and healthy community for raising children. Larry Vellinga: I see a need to refocus on growing our population and our local economy. No more railroads or trips to China with little to no positive returns.

Where to park for Elite 10 bonspiel The Chatham Voice

The following rules and procedures will be in place for the Pinty’s Elite 10 curling event being held at the Thames Campus Arena at St. Clair College in Chatham. During the workweek, from Wednesday to Friday, parking will be limited to the lot behind the St. Clair College HealthPlex/Thames Campus Area and the community lot in front of the HealthPlex. All other parking at St. Clair College is for faculty and students only, at all times, during these days. Parking will be provided at the former Target parking lot, located at the Thames Lea Plaza on Grand Avenue West. A shuttle service will be available to and from the venue on Wednesday from 5 p.m. to 11 p.m. and Thursday/Friday from 7:30

a.m. to 11 p.m. Please note the shuttle service is not accessible transit. Accessible parking spots are available at the arena and HealthPlex locations for all days. Badder Bus and Heuvelman’s Chev have donated the shuttle service; Holiday Inn Express has donated the parking lot for use. On the weekend, all parking spots at St. Clair College will be available at all times, during these days. The transit service will not be offered on these days since the St. Clair parking lot is able to accommodate all patrons. Parking will not be permitted on the surrounding roadways. Forty parking spots will be reserved behind the Arena/HealthPlex for the SportsNet crew and Elite 10 curlers only.

It’s time we focus our attention inwards, supporting our local small businesses to create opportunities. There is constant traffic up and down the 401 of potential tourists with pockets full of money looking for somewhere to spend it. It’s time we push to become that destination. As a predominantly rural municipality, we struggle to create meaningful opportunities for our youth.

A focus on new technologies and partnering with St. Clair College and the University of Guelph may increase the potential of becoming a future center of excellence with good paying positions. My education combined with business experience as Facilities Maintenance Manager at Ford Motor Company provide the tools necessary to make meaningful, fiscally responsible decisions for the citizens of Chatham Kent.
