ed to all parts of that discussion, some of which we aren’t able to speak about publicly until they come to complete fruition and there are challenges in the project.” Kenora MP and Minister Responsible for FedNor, Greg Rickford met with Cliffs Natural Resources and Noront Resources last week to evaluate the market conditions that have cooled interest in the project. While the province is handling First Nations consultation, he said the federal Environmental Assessment is moving ahead, energy projects in some First Nations are underway and skills training for Matawa communities through Confederation College are preparing the local workforce for a development that will change everything. Municipalities will play their part in time, Rickford said. “There are certain things that take X amount of time to do as a matter of law or as a process governed by good faith negotiations, as we’re seeing with (Frank) Iacobucci and Bob Rae and that they’re taking place to tick off some of the bigger structural things that have to occur. Moving forward, I don’t think it’s too far off in the future that municipalities will have a meaningful and important contribution to some of the more strategic developments that their towns and cities can play a role in.”

to assign AMP contract

By Jon Thompson The consultants leading Dryden’s Service and Operational Review will also conduct the city’s Asset Management Plan. At its Sept. 20 meeting, City Council elected to exercise an exemption to its procurement bylaw and grant a $24,826.12 contract to KPMG as a single source, rather than conduct a formal Request For Proposals (RFP). Acting city manager, Debra Kincaid argued KPMG is familiar with Dryden’s financial data and that time is of the essence. “There are other firms that do that, yes and if we go to an RFP for it, we’ll be under the gun to meet the Dec. 31, 2013 deadline. Because that company is currently here, there may be some savings for the city.” The Asset Management

Plan will assess existing and planned local roads, bridges, sewer, water and storm sewer as well as needs for assets. It will be the first assessment of its kind since 2005 when the city underwent a land implementation study, including the Inflow and Infiltration study that led to the sewage treatment plant that is still under construction. That study was also responsible for developing the Centennial Business Park plan and contingency strategies, should the province choose to re-route the highway around Dryden. Public Works manager, Blake Poole confirmed the city’s assets inventory needs to be updated. “This plan will give us the replacement value of our assets and also what we should be doing to continued on pg.


Duo fined for harassing moose Dryden Observer Staff

Northwestern Ontario’s municipalities see smoke but no flame yet on the Ring Of Fire and at the Northwestern Ontario Regional Conference, they held their elected representatives’ feet to the heat. From disagreements over the chromite deposit’s energy appetite to local education, business attraction and development, the region’s municipal leaders expressed respectful impatience toward Thunder Bay Superior MPP and Minister of Northern Development and Mines, Michael Gravelle over what they saw as a slow-moving process with few inroads for input. “I think it’s frustration,” said Northwestern Ontario Municipal Association (NOMA) president and Kenora Mayor Dave Canfield. “The future of Ontario and the future of Canada is in rural and northern Ontario and in rural and northern Canada. When you listen to the people in the know – the huge business people who kind of drive the economy in this country, they’ve made that statement many times over. We understand that as municipal representatives but you have to have the infrastructure in place to make these things happen.” Coun. Shayne MacKinnon was the only representative of Dryden at the Thunder Bay meetings. While he expressed disappointment with his colleagues’ absence, he

praised both NOMA and Gravelle for looking out for the region. “Minister Gravelle’s comments were positive and optimistic regarding the establishment of sustainability of large industry, the addition of large industry in the region and the government supporting that,” he said. “For a municipality like Dryden, there’s a lot of economic spinoff that can happen, even from a large industry that happens in the region, rather than locally.” At the request of Northern Ontario’s large urban mayors, Gravelle announced he would hold a summit to determine next steps on the Northern Growth Plan to assess successes and determine next steps. NOMA past president, Ron Nelson publicly urged attendees to boycott that summit on the conference’s second day. “We know there’s very significant progress in terms of benefits to First Nations,” Gravelle said of the Ring of Fire. “We’re trying to pull all the pieces together and indeed, I heard the frustration from so many of the municipal leaders about wanting to see the project move forward more quickly. We’d all like to see that happen but what I tried to emphasize as much as possible is, this project does need to be done right or else the project won’t happen. There are some very positive things that are taking place relat-


A local man who drove a boat while another leaped from it in an attempt to ride a moose has been fined $2,500. On Sept. 17, Dryden’s Andrew Weiers and Alberta’s Matthew Weiers pled guilty to harassing a cow moose on Eagle Lake and were fined jointly. Andrew’s boat has been seized by an Ontario Court of Justice order until fines are paid. Ministry of Natural Resources (MNR) conservation officers pressed charges in July in response to public complaints over

a video showing a boat coming across a swimming moose then gathering three adult passengers from shore. Andrew tightly circled the animal, preventing her from escape. Matthew is then seen jumping from the boat onto the moose’s back. “As prey animals, moose are biologically programmed to fear and will attempt to escape from predators, including humans,” the MNR expressed in a release. “Inability to escape a predator attack can cause moose extreme physical exhaustion and stress, including death.”

maintain those assets,” Poole explained. “It’s really a service and operational review for those assets which will say what we probably should be doing to maintain the level of our assets.” BDO is currently auditing Dryden’s 2011 Tangible Capital Inventory and a timeline for its completion is expected within the week. Once it’s complete, KPMG will undertake the Asset Management Plan. The provincial grant that will fund the asset plan expires on Dec. 31, 2013, at which point the plan needs to be submitted if Dryden intends to apply for provincial capital infrastructure funding in 2014. “The reason we got the underpass funding is because we promised to get this plan done,” said Mayor Craig Nuttall. “If we’re going to look at any additional funding when we go down to Good Roads, I’m pretty sure we’ll have a lot of brownie points if we have our plan done so we can say, ‘Duke Street, for instance, is in terrible shape, here’s the proof’ so when the government is looking at giving us money, we can use that as a lever.” While several councilors expressed cautious support, provided this asset plan will give a final picture that will not require revisiting, Coun. Sid Wintle cast the lone dissenting vote. “The fact remains that if we start single sourcing, you get the wedge in the door, pretty soon, because there’s a deadline, you start single sourcing. It doesn’t make sense,” Wintle protested. “I don’t know if they can do the job on time because we have to have the fixed assets for them to build on this. The fixed assets aren’t audited yet and they won’t be audited for several weeks, maybe two months. I’m in favour of getting the job done… I don’t think single sourcing is a good way to start procuring services.”

This is only a test By Dryden Observer Staff A host of agencies came together, Sept. 25 to stage an emergency response exercise in the vicinity of the Trans-Canada Pipeline on Hwy. 601. Police, firefighters, EMS, Domtar emergency response personnel the Ontario Energy Board and Trans Canada Pipelines participated in a mock dis-

aster scenario involving a ‘natural gas leak caused by a third party impact’. The role of victims was staffed by Dryden High School Students. Trans Canada Pipeline’s Davis Sheremata says they will compile their finding from the exercise to make improvements to processes in dealing with emergencies.

Letters to the editor

FroM Queen’s Park

Much praise Legislative Page Program a deserved for great opportunity for students By Sarah Campbell, MPP Kenora-Rainy River o you know a student in Grade 7 or 8 who would like to learn more about the way our province is governed? The Legislative Page program may be the opportunity they are looking for. If you have ever watched the Legislature on television, you have likely noticed student pages shuffling between the aisles during proceedings. Legislative Pages are an integral part of the daily operations at Queen’s Park. During their term, Pages are active participants in the days’ proceedings and they can often be seen on the Parliamentary broadcast delivering


documents to members, sharing notes and other information, and delivering petitions to the Clerk’s desk. In addition to being an active part of the province’s legislative process, Pages are able to meet other students from across the province and take part in field trips and other special activities during their visit, which normally lasts from two to four weeks. While the program does not cover a student’s accommodations, program administrators will often work with successful applicants to find lodging and the program will help offset some of the student’s travel costs to Toronto. The program will cover daily travel costs to and from Queen’s Park and successful

applicants will receive an honorarium of $15 per day as a way of thanking them for being part of the program. Over the years, many students from the KenoraRainy River riding have taken part in this outstanding program. I hope to see that list grow over the next few years. To be eligible, students must be in Grades 7 or 8 and have an academic average of 80 per cent or higher. The application process involves a 750 word essay, an online application and a consent form, which must be signed by a parent or guardian as well as a teacher and their principal. The next round of applications for the Spring Parliamentary Session is open to

seniors’ outing

both Grade 7 and 8 students. It closes on November 15. Applications for next fall’s Legislative Session, which is only open to Grade 7 students, will then be considered with a deadline of June 30th. More information on the program, and applications forms can be obtained through any of my community offices, or by contacting the program administrators directly at 416-3257457 or by email at page_program@ontla.on.c a. Additional information is also available on the Legislative Assembly Website at and by following the links to the Legislative Page Program on the right toolbar.

To the editor, I would like to recognize the efforts of Kevin Glenister and Susan Hall who had the great idea to have a Seniors Tea Party out at their farm on Sept. 28. Seniors from Princess Court greatly enjoyed the outing. Kevin and Susan took the time to plan and host a fun-filled day which included: demos of the Savvy team playing and riding their horses, allowing the seniors to interact with the horses, lunch and goodies and local live music to complete the day. Kevin and Susan also spent their time finding volunteers and donations

to make it all happen. Hutchison’s Bus Lines donated a bus for transportation and Bradley Fradsham donated his time to drive. Dr. Clayton Schneider chipped in for lunch and Neil Moody and Lawrence Russell helped out with the music. The rest of the gaps were filled in by volunteers from Princess Court and the Savvy Sunday team. To quote Princess Court resident John Mulders, “It put a little sunshine in everyone’s life today.” Nicole Kohut Dryden

ust a highway? J Like the rural ones that cross-cross old Ontario so you can drive directly from every town to every other town, without having to go out of your way at all, all built and maintained to a higher standard than ours? Political highways, built to buy votes and carrying all of seven non-local vehicles a day? This is not ‘just a highway’. It is the TransCanada highway, one of the longest highways in the world, connecting our country from coast to coast. It is treated with the respect it deserves in the other provinces, built to the highest standard in the province, without worrying about ‘traffic counts’, and in fact emblazoned ‘highway number ONE’. But Ontario says it is ‘just a highway’. After all, we sniff, it is just a rural road serving those few ragged rednecks that inexplicably want to inhabit northern Ontario, land of ice and snow (even though we are six hundred miles south of Edmonton, a provincial capital, and south of fully half of all the farmland in Canada). Even a token effort to bring it up to the standards of 50 years ago is way too much, witness the skinny little one foot paved shoulders that cross-country bikers, hikers, walkers, skateboarders risk their lives on.

Some of us remember when the speed limit was 60 miles per hour (100k). That was the maximum, and one was expected to exercise good common sense and respect and only drive that fast in ideal circumstances. It was reduced in the 1970s to save fuel, which it might have done then, but modern vehicles are tuned to run their best at about 110 k, so there is little fuel saved in going 90. Worse, traffic moves at about 110 on the highway now in any weather conditions, if you dawdle along at 90, the legal limit, you are a traffic hazard. Given our long distances and sparse population, our highway speed limit ought to be more than in the high-traffic south, not less because of some arbitrary definition of ‘highway’. The Ontario Truckers Association estimates that 70 per cent of the truck traffic to and from eastern to western Canada goes through the United States, precisely to avoid the sub-standard road Ontario laughingly calls the TransCanada Highway. We are now embroiled in planning a better bridge to Detroit, in large part to carry this traffic to and from western Canada, and even worse, Ontario is badgering the federal government to put Ontario’s share of federal TransCanada subsidy money (which is never all spent) toward that bridge! How much tax revenue is lost to the U.S. by this unseemly diversion of traffic? How much economic activity is denied northern Ontario? How many northerners are ready to join my Northern Ontario Separatist party? (just thought I would throw that in). And that’s the Contrarian view.

Eagle Lake First Nation unveils employment portal Pilot program to matchmake skills, jobs and development By Jon Thompson Northwestern Ontario is poised to boom and the people of Migisi Sahgaigan First Nation (Eagle Lake) have longbeen ready to work. The First Nation unveiled its Community Asset Inventory Program (CAIP) on Sept. 24, revealing a pilot, bandled employment portal whose architects hope to expand throughout the region. Consultation revealed most workers were uncomfortable posting resumes online so the band office will coordinate ideal candidates for interested employers. It has already accumulated resumes for 53 per cent of band members and is beginning to reach out to off-reserve members. Limited employment opportunities exist on-

reserve today but the designer, Jamie Saulnier of Running Deer Resources sees his company’s software as both a business attraction tool for developing economies on the traditional territories of First Nations and a one-stop shop for employers seeking to attract qualified candidates for work outside the community. “I’m very confident in saying, if anybody were to engage Eagle Lake First Nation right now, they’d be getting a great workforce,” Saulnier said. “They’re a very skilled group. I was very shocked. The first 40 people who came through that door and went into the system were welders, carpenters, hard rock miners, truck drivers. These aren’t just labourers. These are very, very skilled labourers.”

Jenny Adams is among them. The educated and certified welder has been unable to find a position in her field and is currently working in the First Nation’s Employment Insurance office where she sees an abnormally high number of high school and higher learning graduates in similar positions. “I see the efforts of this system being a game –changer with respect to how First Nations do business with companies in the areas of employment and HR (Human Resources),” she said. “It’s time for us as Anishinaabe people to let go of our misfortunes of the past and excel into our imminent potential. We have equipped ourselves with the necessary skills and tools to make ourselves a competitive workforce.”

Devon MacKinnonOttertail is the economic development officer at Eagle Lake. She will accept calls from employers, organize slates of prospective candidates and serve as an intermediary. “It has created a local labour pool. We know who’s looking, who’s available to work and what kind of work they’re looking for,” she said. “Let us do the work for you. If you have a job description and a particular position that needs to be filled, we’ll take a look at that and we’ll try to find some particular candidates based on the skills you’re requesting.” Chief Arnold Gardner was one of the first in his community who went away to school in 1969. He has seen members travel as far as Alberta for work and knows the future of Northern Ontario’s labour market will be dependent on travel. Band-led employment simply cannot sustain the

Staff Photo local population and he sees potential for livelihoods in the resource development explosion expected over the next decade. Through a combination of attracting business to the First Nation and positioning band members to excel in the job market, he said Eagle Lake is officially ready. “I’m not a fool and I

don’t think our people are either. It’s going to be a competition for these jobs but as long as we have a relationship we can look at everyone in an equal way as an equal opportunity. That’s all we’re looking for. Sometimes you have to break down a system. It’s about time they knew what we’re about in this community.”

From humble beginnings...

The article was sourced from Gwen Johnston’s recently published retrospective on the Dryden Mill, titled Dryden Mill, 100 Years and Beyond. By Dryden Observer Staff he story of Domtar’s Dryden Mill plays an intrinsic role in Dryden’s history, an inseparable part of the community’s identity. At the beginning of the mill’s centennial celebrations in June local Domtar employees celebrated with a symbolic nod to the future and a commitment to sustainability. They planted trees. Early years A century of industry and progression has yielded remarkable change which began with the first dam constructed at the mouth of the Wabigoon River in 1898. Securing a 1,000 square mile timber license from the province of Ontario, brothers Charles and Grant Gordon established a sawmill on the river’s western bank in 1908, which was consumed by fire in 1911. Taking over the site, The Dryden Power and Timber Company embarked on the construction of the second Wabigoon River Dam that would further raise the lake level and allow for the production of electricity. The Dryden Mill was the first kraft mill in Ontario and fourth in Canada. At its startup in 1913, the mill produced 40 tons per day of unbleached kraft pulp, employing 206 at the mill site and another 500 in the bush during logging season. In the boom times of the early 1900s, construction was financed through mortgage bonds and 30,000 shares of $100 each were issued to raise $3 million ($72 million today with inflation adjustment). By 1918, the now Dryden Pulp and Paper Company had entered the paper making business with its No. 2 paper machine which could produce 30 tons of unbleached bag and wrapping paper per day. In 1922, the new No. 3 paper machine could make 18 tons of glazed kraft paper, fruit wrappers, or tissue paper per day. The 1920s were lean times as the paper company was forced into receivership in 1923, idling the mill. The startup of the Bates Valve Bag Company (later the St. Regis Paper Company) offered local workers some shortterm hope as contracts with the Hudson’s Bay Company and Eaton’s bolstered employment at the mill site to 450 people. The devastation of the 1929 stock market crash saw the hardest times yet descend upon the community with the mill running only intermittently from 1931 to 1933. Recovery was slow and in 1935 the Paper Company got into the bag business themselves purchasing four bag machines of varying sizes. The outbreak of World War II in 1939 boosted demand for manufactured goods and the mill returned to full-time operation with mill employees also producing naval parts for the war effort. The 1940s was an era marked by significant modernization with the construction of a chemical recovery plant and changes to mill’s steam and power systems and six new 2,100 cubic foot digesters which could yield six tons of pulp each. In 1948 the mill started the No. 4 paper machine and made continuous improvements to existing equipment. From 1940 to 1951 the mill spent nearly $5 million (equivalent to $80 million of today’s dollars) in its efforts to modernize and more than double its output of pulp and paper from under 20,000 tons in 1940 to 50,000 tons. Times were good. Production goals were to reach significantly higher in the ’50s as the mill sought to reach 80,000 tons of product per year with a second phase of expansion which began in 1954. By early 1957 the mill site saw the construction of a new causticizing plant, wood room, bleach plant, chemical preparation area and filtration plant. Four additional digesters were added as well as a lime kiln which is still in operation to this day. In 1960 Reed Paper Group assumed ownership adding the chlor-alkali plant necessary to produce the fine papers which would become the mill’s staple product for decades to come. In the bush Modernization swept not only through the mill site over the decades, but also manifested significant changes on the

landbase where workers toiled to supply the mill with wood fiber. In the beginning, nearly half of the mill’s wood supply was sourced from area settlers, though restrictions were placed to avoid prevent people filing for a homestead for the express purpose of cutting the wood and abandoning the land. Trees were felled by Swede saw and skidded by horses to waterways where they were boomed together into masses of 2,500 cords to be towed away by tugs. Horse teams gave way to mechanized skidders in the ’50s and trucks were introduced to area logging operations in 1933 — a trend that would grow significantly over the next 20 years. Two-man gasoline powered chainsaws began to appear in the area in the late 1940s with the one-man saw arriving in 1950. Company logging camps, each home to 40-75 men began to give way to ‘commuter camps in the 1960s as roads and vehicles improved. Provincial forest management policy also came of age in the late 1940s with the introduction of the Forest Management Act, which required companies to submit plans to ensure their consumption of wood did not exceed the forest’s capacity to replace it. In 1969 the first harvesting machines were put into use in the field, with Dryden participating in their development. The consequences of industry In the mill’s early history, mill effluent, including solids-laden wood room wastewater and pulp and paper mill effluents was discharged untreated below the dam. From 1956 these included bleach plant filtrates and from 1962 wastewater from the chlor-alkali plant. By the 1960s, a layer of bark and wood fiber had been deposited on the bed of the Wabigoon River from Dryden to Clay Lake and oxygenation of the river was poor. Those discharges had a lasting impact. Studies in the 1970s would confirm that fish in the Wabigoon-English River System had high levels of mercury and that frequent consumers of those fish in Grassy Narrows and Wabaseemong First Nations also had elevated levels of mercury in their blood. Nearly 40 years since mercury discharges ceased, mercury levels in fish in the Wabigoon-English River system have declined, though still remain somewhat elevated. Residents of Grassy Narrows and Wabaseemong First Nations are eligible for compensation by a Mercury Disability Board funded by the federal and provincial governments and a settlement reached with Reed and Great lakes Forest Products in 1985. The modern era The 1980s saw another significant renewal project worth $350 million, installing primary and secondary effluent plants and replacing most of the pulp and paper manufacturing equipment. By 1990, the mill found its Recovery Boiler 3 incapable of meeting standards for odour and air quality. In 2001, at a cost of $250 million, owners Weyerhaeuser undertook the construction of a new low-odour recovery, collection and incineration system for odorous gases. At the time the project was touted as a mark of confidence in the face of an alarming trend in communications, electronic substitution, that would soon have drastic effects on the paper industry. “The new recovery boiler indicates the company’s commitment to the long-term viability of the Dryden facility,” said Norm Bush, manager of the day. Sales volumes and prices were dropping, inventories were climbing and the company experienced the first contraction of its workforce since The Great Depression. Between 2003 and 2009 restructuring at the Dryden Mill would affect 700 workers. In 2007, the fine paper assets of Weyerhaeuser were merged with Domtar Pulp and Paper. The year also saw the end to paper-making at the site as both the No. 1 and No. 2 paper machines were permanently shut down. Since 2009, mill employees have worked diligently to adapt operations to serve the pulp market in challenging economic environment. Domtar Dryden currently produces an average of 925 tons of pulp daily for customers mainly in the towel and tissue sector.

Adaptation a constant theme in mill’s history, says Blight By Chris Marchand The theme of sustainability and adaptation was woven throughout the remarks offered at Domtar’s Community Picnic in celebration of 100 years in Dryden, Sept. 29. Mill manager Jim Blight raised his voice to compete with the din of near torrential rains pelting the tent which thankfully sheltered those in attendance from a soaking. “When the Gordon Brothers started their operation just down the river from where we are today, could they have ever imagined what their project would eventually evolve to more than a century later,” said Blight. “What we have today is a modern kraft mill in a company whose vision has become a global leader in innovation and development of fibrebased products.” Blight remarked that throughout its history the mill has found it necessary to adapt the realities of the day — bearing witness to both boom and bust cycles. “Since the early 1900s the Dryden operation has changed its structure several times, responding to the changing demands for forestry products. The one constant that has been there since 1913 is kraft pulp production.” The Dryden mill currently produces 330,000 tons of pulp annually which is sold to be used a raw material in the production of consumer products and packaging . The event welcomed local dignitaries such as Kenora RainyRiver Member of Provincial Parliament Sarah Campbell, as well as Deputy Mayor and retired mill employee Martin MacKinnon and the Dryden Chamber of Commerce’s Richard Jonasson to assist Blight is unveiling a commemorative plaque which will be place in Cooper Park with information on the mill’s history.

Campbell says she’ll continue to lobby to create better operating conditions for forestry in the province. “We’ve had our fair share of challenges,” said Campbell. “One of the messages that I wanted to bring is that it really is incumbent upon all of us to work together to set the conditions that forestry

can continue to thrive across Northwestern Ontario.” Blight says the future will be much like the past — an ongoing process of evolution. “We see that we need to work on our cost structure and our sustainability practices to make sure that we can compete in a stable, slowly growing market,” said Blight. “Obviously the world of paper has changed with things like cell phones and other electronic substitution, but we’ve shifted. You’ve got to give the people here credit.”

In June, Domtar employyees planted 150 trees along the west bank of the Wabigoon River to kick off Centennial Celebrations. Photo submitted

Campbell: provincial tourism strategy ignores the Northwest by Jon thompson Ontario is promoting tourism through the changing leaves in its provincial parks this season but Kenora-Rainy River MPP Sarah Campbell says the Fall Colours campaign falls flat. Campbell rose in the Legislature to criticize the joint campaign between the Ministry of Natural Resources and the Ministry of Tourism, Culture and Sport on Sept. 24, arguing Northern Ontario was left on the forest floor during its planning. Despite the campaign having included parks throughout the region in some promotional materials and excluding the North entirely in others, Campbell pointed out seven Northern parks are already closed for the season, not including those permanently closed by 2012 budget cuts. The campaign recommends stopping at Travel Information Centres, 10 of which have been shut down. “My argument was they’re telling people to explore the natural beauty. All of our parks are closed,” Campbell said. “When I see a locked gate and a sign that says ‘closed for the season,’ that’s not a sign for me to go exploring around. The gates are locked right at the highway. Where are we supposed to park? Just at the side of the highway? To me, that feels kind of like trespassing. I think there are a lot of people who would feel similar to that.” Minister of Tourism, Culture and Sport, Michael Chan said Campbell is flatly wrong. “We have over 300 parks. Yes, some parks are closed but the park isn’t closed. People

can still go into the park and experience any park they want,” he said. “To say the park is closed is a bit too much. Tourists coming in can drop into any park they want to drop into.” In 2010, the Liberals adopted the Regional Tourism Organization (RTO) strategy and committed $5-million per year to RTO 13, which reaches from North Bay to Hudson’s Bay to the Manitoba border. Its funding is the second highest among RTOs but it occupies 90 per cent of the province’s landmass and is divided into three parts, unlike any other region. Chan claimed the structure has encouraged promotional collaboration and allowed Northern Ontario to reach into Manitoba and U.S. markets as an independent focus from most Southern Ontario tourism marketing. The distinct and distant nature of the North, he said, is the reason for investing in online attraction tools. “Northern Ontario is quite unique. I understand the infrastructure is quite different from Ottawa or Hamilton or Toronto. This is why my industry is in the process of implementing our own website, our won web portals so that tourists can plan their trips before they leave their homes. We believe outreach by social media is so huge and in the coming years, it will get bigger and bigger. We are focused into directing people to our website and at the same time, encouraging people to plan before they come camping or hunting in Northern Ontario. Those are the things we’ve built into the RTOs we talk about.”

Greater regional political autonomy on wish list for NOMA delegates by Jon thompson Presented with two pages of options for prioritizing economic development in Northwestern Ontario, one priority emerged before the surveys were counted: regional political autonomy. Of the 17 suggested points presented at the Northwestern Ontario Regional Conference, speaker after speaker approached the microphone to recommend others vote for “Devolution of Government Decision Making to Northwestern Ontario.” Under devolution, the province suggested it would examine existing models for regional decision-making, including how those models would

apply to the region. Northwestern Ontario Municipal Association president and Kenora Mayor Dave Canfield saw a pattern emerge among the 17 suggestions, dividing them into land use planning and economic development. He suggested to the forum once the region has the tools to chart its own development, all else will fall into place. “The way we’ve been doing it (development) for years hasn’t necessarily been working anymore,” Canfield said, citing efficient resource development in Manitoba and Saskatchewan as exemplary relationships between dense population centres and communities

dependent on resource extraction. “They’re smaller jurisdictions, maybe that’s the key. Maybe we reduce the size of the jurisdiction – and I don’t mean being a separate province. I mean having a planning act for Northwestern Ontario so we can go through these issues a lot quicker and we don’t have to go through red tape, red tape, red tape.” Although NOMA’s conversations with Nishnawbe-Aski Nation (NAN) Grand Chief Harvey Yesno have yielded an interest in building relationships between the Treaty 9 and 5 First Nations of the Far North and Northwestern municipalities, Canfield insisted

Ice Dogs split with Lakers By Dryden Observer Staff A two game home-andhome series against the Fort Frances Lakers set the stage for another great regular season rivalry this past week. The Ice Dogs continued to put their new netminders through the paces putting Terry Hughes between the pipes, Sept. 25. The Ice Dogs had marked two goals in the first five minutes of the game which led to the Lakers swapping goalies Jordan McCartney for Ryan Ferguson. The second period was a high scoring affair with the Lakers tacking on four goals to make it a 6-5 game in favour of the visitors after 40 minutes. The Ice Dogs then forced overtime midway through the third as Drew Decker tied the game at 6-6. After a scoreless fiveminute overtime period solved nothing, extra shots were required to determine who would get the extra point in the standings. In the shootout, Tyson Holder and Kevin Kurm traded goals on each team’s third shot before Zach Kercz struck again for Dryden on their fourth attempt.

The Lakers strike back On Sept. 28 the two teams were back at it again, this time at Fort Frances Ice For Kids Arena. Facing an early fourgoal deficit, the Ice Dogs clawed their way back to a tied game early in the third period. It would be all for naught as the Lakers would put three more pucks past Ice Dogs goalie Robert Kopytek-MacKenzie in the final frame. Kopytek-MacKenzie faced 40 attempts in a losing cause for Dryden. The Ice Dogs return to action at home on Friday facing the Thunder Bay North Stars. Cancer Game Oct. 5 The Dryden Ice Dogs and Standard Insurance are please to announce their Cancer Game, which will be held Saturday, Oct. 5th. Jersies are for sale and a loved ones name can be put on the back of the jersey for the game. Proceeds from the jersey sales will be split between the Dryden Ice Dogs and the oncology unit at the Dryden Regional Health Centre.

Uphill battle for young football squad Submitted by Geoff Zilkalns The NFL has its reality show “Hard Knocks” and that is what the season for the Dryden Eagles continues to be. In a recurring theme, the host Eagles played spirited football against an older and more seasoned group and played close for a time. This week the opponent was the 3-1 Elmwood Giants and, though the score was close at 10-0 at the half, the visitors pulled away after the break. In a game suspended for lightning briefly in the third quarter, there were some electric plays on both sides

throughout the wet and physical contest. Dryden had a strong game from defensive end Jed Benham who had four tackles and his first interception on the year. The team also recovered two Giant fumbles. On the offensive side, Braydon Hansson led the team in rushing for the third straight week as his 19 carries yielded 134 yards. Now sitting at 0-4 on the campaign, Dryden has a busy week as they travel to Fort Frances on Tuesday and return for Homecoming on Friday Oct. 4 versus the undefeated West Kildonan Wolverines.

Eagles cross-country team mark win in Kenora By Dryden Observer Staff The strongest DHS Eagles Cross Country team yet kicked off their fall 2013 season with a convincing win over Fort Frances and Kenora, Sept. 26. The Eagles elementary age team kicked off the day with a convincing win with Amy Wickstrom, Sarah Urquhart, Corrin Kuzemchuck and Mandy Tourand finishing first, fifth, sixth, and seventh respectively for the overall win over Beaver Brae and St.

Eagles Junior Boys finished first, second, third, and fourth for a perfect minimum score of 10 points. Rookie Mike Braun looked incredibly strong, turning in one of the most impressive runs of the day,

running negative splits on one of the toughest courses the Eagles will see. The Eagles Senior Girls Andie Wood, Martina Wintle, Gabby Gagnon and Dom Gardner combined efforts for a first, third, fourth and fifth finish and the team win after Elizabeth Carter blew a tire on the treacherous cobble hill. Senior Boys Jake Wickstrom won the Senior title with his team mates Patrick Gould, Ilya Perkins and Jeremy Braun finishing first-second-third and sixth for the team win.

The overall team win keeps the Eagles win streak alive, remaining undefeated against all NorWOSSA Team. “It’s really amazing to see what kids can do with a

Bruce Cockburn on stage at The Centre during the opening show of the 2013-14 Dryden Entertainment Series.

Photo by Chris Marchand

Cockburn hits home run in DES opener By Chris Marchand ruce Cockburn is everything you’d expect him to be while still managing to be not at all what you’d expect. The iconic folk-rocker kicked off the 2013-14 Dryden Entertainment Series to the hoots and hollers of a houseful of lifetime fans, Sept. 30. Cockburn remains in full command of the cave of riches he has worked a lifetime to amass, doling out handfuls of lyrical gems over the


years on the radio to a nation that absorbed them into its cultural identity. Caged by hanging tubular chimes with a backdrop of camouflage netting, the 68 year-old’s politicallycharged persona seemed tempered by a curtain of modesty, briefly flashing out from time to time in the discharge of his passionate music. But what I forgot, or never knew about Bruce Cockburn, having formed my image of the artist via full band radio hits of the

late 70s and early 1980s, is what the man can do with an acoustic guitar. It’s not so much a guitar as it is an extension of his musical being. In Cockburn’s grip it’s a wash of polyrhythmic layers — subtle melodies over distinct rhythm sections. It’s a style both grounded in tradition and yet some strange Galapagosian variant that evolved in isolation to become this precious, indescribable thing. That much was established even before Cock-

burn would introduce the delay processor on his guitar for the spellbinding instrumental ‘The End of All Rivers’ in which he would make use of the hanging tubular chimes (triggered by foot pedals). Cockburn commented briefly on his first-ever venture across the rail line into Dryden in 35 years of touring Canada. “My connection to Dryden goes back many years,” he quipped. “Unfortunately that connection has never extend-

ed beyond the edge of the highway. Countless tanks of gas.” Cockburn spread out a few of his more recognizable singles throughout the evening. Songs like ‘Tokyo’ and ‘Lovers In A Dangerous Time’ (interestingly modeled on the Barenaked Ladies cover version) graced the first set, while arguably his biggest hit ‘Wondering Where The Lions Are’, drew an audience sing-along in the latter half of the evening.

In a community known for disingenuous standing ovations, the evening ended in perhaps the singlemost authentic call for an encore in Dryden’s history with fans stomping and chanting for Cockburn’s return to the stage. He obliged with a smile. “How can I say ‘no’ to that?” he said over the cheering throng. The Dryden Entertainment Series resumes, Oct. 23, welcoming Juno-award winning performers Rose Cousins to the stage.

Friends, family and a film crew help Nibinamik-born Maggie Sofea (wheelchair) achieve the momentus journey back to the remote site where she sustained the spinal injury that left her a paraplegic. Image submitted

Re-tracing paths, renewing a vital connection DRHC to screen documentary film ‘Ordinary Woman, Extrordinary Dreams’, Oct. 3 By Jon Thompson Maggie Sofea pleaded for the patience of a film crew that was calling her down from the hill overlooking the lake. “Binima,” she repeated to them. The Ojibwe word for “wait” echoed against their call for her to return to the boats. Sofea just wanted to stare into the land for a few more minutes before she left

the site where everything changed. It took 10 years and a lot of planning to get her back to the campsite near Nibinamik First Nation (Summer Beaver) but telling story that brought her home wouldn’t be complete without the reflection on the journey. At 11 years old, Sofea was teaching a niece to dive in the summer sunset. When

she dove in, she felt numb at the top of her neck, her body motionless. She didn’t know what was happening to her. In that moment, she had become quadriplegic. In the following moments that became years, she sought to return. “When I was at the top of the hill looking over the beach and the waters, I felt very surreal and I couldn’t believe that it was possible that this all happened to me,” said the star of Ordinary Woman, Extraordinary Dreams. “I knew in my heart it was possible for me to get there and all I had to do was work hard at achiev-

ing that goal. I wanted to inspire everybody – people with disabilities or who live in the reserve or anybody who has circumstances to pursue their dreams like I did.” Now a student of Confederation College’s film program, Sofea told only one person she wanted to tell her story in a documentary. The challenge of putting supports in place for someone with a mobility disability to visit a remote community is the film’s narrative but the underlying theme shows her drive to return to the land she called home. “I felt very sad to go and

leave this place, which I called my home and my land that made me who I am as an Aboriginal,” she explained. “It made me not want to leave because my family and my relatives are there to support me. It’s stronger than the fear of what has happened when I had my accident. It shows the the unbreakable bond whenever you move anywhere or somewhere in that city or away from your land, it has that greater bond with the land. No matter where you go or where you live at, it’s always right there, waiting.” Through the lens, film-

maker, Dave Clement saw Sofea’s story as a microcosm of a broader trend in the First Nation that is reinforcing the ties to the land. “Maggie is, by far, one of the most inspiring people I have ever had the privilege to know,” he said, adding praise for the community spirit of Summer Beaver. “The people are so kind and the love I saw expressed for each other moved me deeply. I also saw that what they are doing there should be done everywhere – mandatory landbased skills training for the youth. It makes them really strong as a people because they’ve kept their connection in the face of so many things that seek to sever it.” From small planes to boats to an all-terrain wheelchair and a trail rider similar to a rickshaw, Spinal Cord Injury Ontario’s Darren Lillington oversaw the logistics of transporting Sofea to one of the more remote places on the planet. He was also instrumental in working with her to ensure she could achieve her dreams of making films through accessibility at the college. For him, the documentary is proof of the determination that makes disabled people, able. “What we want to say is, it’s possible with the right supports in place. That can be done. It can be achieved. My organization is about not really saying, ‘it’s not possible,’ but ‘how can we make it possible?’ I worked with other First Nations people with spinal cord injuries and wanted to return home to live in their communities and we were able to make it possible by getting supports in place.” Ordinary Woman, Extraordinary Dreams will screen at The Centre on Thursday, Oct. 3 at 1 p.m.

OBituaries Grace May Schmidt – July 26, 1925 - September 20, 2013

Grace was born in Dryden to Frank and Esther Cooper on July 26, 1925, a younger sister to Eileen. Grace lived her entire 88 years in or near

Dryden. As a young woman she married William James Henderson and moved to their farm on what is now known as the Henderson Loop Road. There they became the proud parents of their first son Frank, followed a few years later by the twins Bruce and Colin. Sadly William passed away and Grace moved into town to her lifelong home on Casimir Ave. Several years later she met and married Jesse Schmidt and increased her family with 2 more sons, Krag and Chris. Grace worked at various

retail establishments over the years but Parkdale Corner Store was her longest and last job. Many longtime Dryden residents will remember Grace as the ‘Corner Store Lady’ who waited patiently (usually) for them to select their favourite penny candy treats after a long school day. Grace loved the outdoors. She loved to garden, pick blueberries and spend time at camp on Thunder Lake. She loved to walk, she and her friends Hazel and Ann would walk for miles each day sometimes heading to

Sandy Beach for a picnic. She enjoyed knitting and often treated her family to beautiful sweaters, socks, baby clothes and blankets. It was perhaps during a trip to England with her mother and sister that Grace discovered her love for travel. Over the years there were bus tours to the Maritimes, Florida and Nashville. Many summers she would travel to British Columbia, stopping to visit various friends and family along the way. There were numerous shorter excursions to various casinos in Winnipeg and Minnesota. After her retirement, she

went further afield, touring New Guinea, Australia and Thailand. Her last big trip was to Chili and Peru where she climbed to the top of Machu Pichu despite being 72 years of age! Her family was the most important thing to Grace and always the center of her life. Her grandchildren were definitely the light of her life. All of the grandchildren loved visits with Gramma Grace or Nanny as she was called. Each one had their turn to learn how to make Grace’s secret recipe for the best chocolate chip cookies and the ‘only way’ to cook fresh

pickerel. A Funeral Service to celebrate Grace’s life was held Tuesday September 24th, 2013 at 11:00 a.m. in St. Luke’s Anglican Church with Father Dick Kennedy officiating. Interment has taken place in the Dryden Cemetery. If friends desire donations may be made to Grace Haven or DRHC Foundation through the Stevens Funeral Homes P.O. Box 412, Dryden ON P8N 2Z1.

She attended Eagle River Public School, graduating from Dryden High School, furthering her education at Red River College. She loved her job at Dingwall Medical Clinic and the people she worked with.

World Breastfeeding Week

Breastfeeding support close to mothers Submitted World Breastfeeding Week (WBW) is celebrated annually from October 1-7. This year’s theme, Breastfeeding Support: Close to Mothers, highlights the importance of providing support to breastfeeding families. Infant feeding is one of the most important decisions that families make. Evidence is clear that breastfeeding is the ideal way to feed an infant. Research shows that infants who are not exclusively breastfed for their first six months of life are more likely to develop a wide range of chronic and acute diseases, including ear infections, diarrheal diseases, asthma, Sudden Infant Death Syndrome, obesity and respiratory illnesses. Mothers also benefit from breastfeeding with

a decreased risk for breast and ovarian cancers. Despite most mothers wanting to breastfeed, many are met with multiple and complex challenges that keep them from achieving their personal breastfeeding goals. Elizabeth Brooks, President of the International Lactation Consultant Association® (ILCA®) states that, “Learning how to breastfeed takes time and patience for new mothers and infants. It is important to remember that families, friends, healthcare providers, employers, childcare providers, communities, and even the media play a crucial role in mother’s overall success with breastfeeding”. During the 2013 WBW, the Northwestern Health Unit (NWHU) will work towards strengthening knowledge about breast-

feeding and the BabyFriendly Initiative (BFI). ‘Baby-Friendly’ is considered ‘best-practice’ for agencies working with pregnant and parenting families. We know appropriate breastfeeding support can build a mother’s confidence with breastfeeding, avoid or address possible difficulties, and assist her to achieve her breastfeeding goals. Donna Mior, Public Health Nurse, Lactation Consultant states, “Women in our area are fortunate to have options and can access breastfeeding support from their local health unit Healthy Babies Healthy Children (HBHC) nurse, contacting one of the health unit lactation consultants (HBHC tollfree number 1 800-4654377), or other community programs and professionals.”
