CORNWALL, Ontario – A Cornwall food bank will be honing the culinary skills of impoverished families, as they roll out a new program following a boost in funding. The Agape Centre in Cornwall has been approved for a $6,540 Feeding Families Fund grant from McCain Foods Canada, Nestle Canada, and Food Banks Canada. The funds will help Agape develop a new interactive program, similar to a cooking club, that engages families and children to create healthy meals from scratch at a low cost. Each session will be free of charge and offer participants foods to take home, as well as provide an easy to use tool-kit for future use. Alyssa Blais, executive director at the Agape, says the program is scheduled to start before the summer. “We see so many families come through

our doors and are now able to offer them a series of workshops that will increase their knowledge of healthy nutrition supports our mission,” said Blais. Agape will be consulting local dieticians to secure a healthy list of meals that can be prepared by the program’s facilitator and participants in their soup kitchen. Making meals as a group will teach participants to be more comfortable in the kitchen, and to seek out healthier alternatives to put on their plate. When each session is over, there will be plenty of food to take home. The centre has been providing food, clothing and, furniture to more than 1,000 people each month for the better part of the decade. Over the years, Agape has experienced an increased demand for services and wants to make certain that no one goes hungry in the community. “Thanks to grants such as this one from Food Banks Canada, we will be able to offer more support to our local families in need,” said Blais.

1946 - 2014: A final farewell to Phil Poirier adam.brazeau@tc.tc

CORNWALL, Ontario – The life and death of Phil Poirier, former two-time mayor of Cornwall, was celebrated by hundreds of mourners at a standing-roomonly funeral last Saturday. Poirier was 68-years-old. His funeral took place at St. Francis de Sales Roman Catholic Church on April 12. A mix of family, friends, local residents, and politicians gathered for a solemn ceremony delivered by Reverend Jerome Pastores. He expressed the shock of Poirier’s passing, which could be felt by many in attendance. Pastores said he met Poirier for the first time two weeks before he died on Tuesday, April 8. Since August he was battling a rare form of cancer. “I didn’t believe it was his time,” he said. The reverend was called back two days after to read Poirier his last rites at the Cornwall Hospice. “I saw a different Phil, he couldn’t speak,” said Pastores. Even at the end when he could no longer talk, he wouldn’t give in; as the priest read a prayer, Poirier’s lips mouthed the words. For many, this small moment is a testament to his level of commitment, which was at its peak when it came to family, friends, and the City of Cornwall. “If you were given just one moment to see for yourself the many people here

- Phil, you were loved and you do not die alone,” he said. Poirier was the former proprietor and president of Poirier Business Machines. The eulogy was given by Gib McIntee, a friend of Poirier’s for 51 years. “It was obvious Phil enjoyed being mayor and he thoroughly enjoyed talking about it after his terms were over,” said McIntee. He described the last few weeks spent with Poirier as a period of reflection for the long-time politician, who was elected Cornwall’s mayor in 1988, and again in 2003. “To sum it up, Phil Poirier was a great lifelong friend and I was privileged to have been associated with him for all of these years. I will miss him, as will everyone else who has gathered here today.”

Former Cornwall mayor Phil Poirier’s casket is carried into St. Francis de Sales Roman Catholic Church last Saturday morning. Adam Brazeau

Hockey, the great Cornwall-Kungälv equalizer ADAM.BRAZEAU@TC.TC

CORNWALL, Ontario – The Cornwall connection to Kungälv, Sweden started with hockey, but the camaraderie of friendly competition has kept it alive off the ice for nearly a decade. After a lengthy travel, a collection of 43 hockey players, all 13 and 14-year-olds, and their families arrived in the Seaway City on April 8, with a departure date of April 13. Fifteen Swedish hockey players were billeted with members of the Seaway Valley minor bantam AA Rapids and their family. Lars-Ove Haraldsson, Kungälv-Cornwall trip organizer, says the event has been ongoing for the last eight out of nine years. “It has become a tradition and the connection keeps on growing,” said Haraldsson. He’s already been approached by another group of young Kungälv hockey players for next year’s trip. “The Benson Centre is exactly what we would like to have back home. This is a utopia,” he said.

On Friday, April 11, Team Sweden faced off against Team Canada at the Benson Centre. Cornwall fans were cheering as the local team won 3-0. Emerson Lalonde scored a goal and Jordan Canham lit up the scoreboard not just once, but twice, earning him first star of the game. Unable to clinch a spot in the playoffs this season, the Rapids were glad to taste victory. Dawson Irving, 14, earned the shutout. “It was an awesome week. I was able to play against people from another country,” said Irving. “This is a shutout I won’t forget.” His opponent Carl Hansson, 13, displayed true sportsmanship by congratulating him on the impressive performance. It was Hansson’s first time in the country. He stayed with Irvings to get a full dose of Canadiana. “Besides playing hockey, the most exciting parts of this trip was meeting the Irvings,” said Hansson. Randy Irving, team manager, said his son heavily anticipated the arrival of the Swedish players. “The trip is very exciting for the Rapids and the city. All the players have a great time, and learn a lot about competing on an international level,” said Randy.”

Council adopts new transparency policy for members of outside boards Todd Lihou todd.lihou@tc.tc

CORNWALL, Ontario - City council has adopted a new policy that forces councillors and the mayor to declare if they are members of outside agencies or boards before voting on matters related to those groups. Councillors agreed Monday night on what many consider a conflict of interest policy that creates more openness among councillors and the public. Some critics have suggested that councillors who are members of agencies like the Agape Centre and Heart of the City, to name just two, should at the very least make their membership known publicly, if not recusing themselves from debating and voting on motions related to those boards. “This concept is good,” said Coun. Bernadette Clement. “We should absolutely declare what boards we sit on before we debate any motions. It puts our comments in context.” But Clement had issues with just who can make complaints if they feel a city councillor is out of line. The policy was initially spelled out to include complaints from councillors only. City clerk Helen Finn said there would be room for council to make changes to the

policy and allow complaints from the pubic. There were also some questions about who councillors could be called out by their colleagues if they contravene the policy. Coun. Denis Thibault was vocal in his belief that he wouldn’t stand for getting his “hand slapped” for ommiting to declare his membership on outside boards. The policy wasn’t without other critics. Coun. Elaine MacDonald, while in support of openness, suggested council is going too far with the policy. “I don’t think any of us sit on boards in private. We don’t sneak around and hide our charitable good work,” she said, adding the policy has created an air of “negativty” when it comes to sitting on outside boards. “That negative spirit is somehow, in our minds.” MacDonald added the motion could keep some council members from volunteering to serve on outside boards. MacDonald sparked the debate concerning council members who are members of outside boards. She is a member of the Agape Centre board, but has voted around the city council table to spend money on the charitable agency. She has argued her Agape membership is not a conflict of interest because she does not benefit personally from decisions she makes at city hall.

CORNWALL, Ontario – The British invasion started 50 years ago, and the revolution continued at the Port Theatre in Cornwall this Friday. The iconic venue celebrated five decades of Beatlemania with Revolution, a renowned tribute band. The crowd at the Port on April 11 was aged mostly 50 years or older, but the pandemonium resembled that of the Beatles’ ground-breaking performance on the Ed Sullivan show, exactly 50 years ago, which catapulted them into international fame. Larry Sylvain, theatre co-owner, and organizers Jeff Brunet, Alkaline

Entertainment, and city council candidates Mark MacDonald and Brock Frost created the fundraising event to help maintain the building and purchase a new digital projector (a cost of $60,000). “The Port needs the support of the community. This will help make it a viable venue,” said Sylvain. “We also need to upgrade to a digital projector to compete in the movie market. None of the major studios are releasing 35mm prints.” The sold out show raised nearly $2,500. Frost MC’d the event and Cornwall’s Landmark, a classic rock band, opened the show. “The Port is a historic venue, especially in the Le Village district and it needs to be promoted as such,” said Frost.

Rural economic summit slated for end of the month

is in the air!

Todd Lihou todd.lihou@tc.tc

CORNWALL, Ontario – Rural business owners and economic stakeholders will gather later this month to explore challenges to development in small communities while also learning about the strengths of their hometowns. The rural Economic Summit of Ontario is taking place April 30 to May 2 in Rockland and features and keynote address from Louis Garneau, president and founder of Louis Garneau Sports, a company that does business in over 45 countries worldwide. “He got his start in his father’s garage,” said Caroline Arcand, spokesperson for the summit. “When we think of rural businesses that’s how they start.” The summit will explore barriers to PHARMACY

economic growth in rural Ontario, with a specific emphasis on the transition being experience in small communities throughout the province. “Rural communities are facing major transformations right now,” said Arcand. “One of the realities is the income levels per capita. “Research has demonstrated how rural communities are in between urban areas and there are a lot of issues facing rural purchasing power. It creates a lot of challenges for small business owners and the local government to keep up.” But Arcand pointed out the positive aspects of rural life will be presented as well. “The fact that we know who you are dealing with can accelerate local projects. We know who we are working with,” she said. For more information on the summit, which will be hosted at the International Hockey Academy in Rockland, check out www.sommet2014summit.ca.

High energy production opens soon Roxanne Delage ROXANNEDELAGE@GMAIL.COM

CORNWALL, Ontario - The Seaway Valley Theatre Company is thick in rehearsal for its upcoming production of Moon Over Buffalo, by Ken Ludwig, which opens early next month. The period farce centres on, fading stars, George and Charlotte Hay who are in the chaotic midst of a run of Private Lives and Cyrano De Bergerac, at a mismanaged reparatory theatre, in 1950s Buffalo. With their marriage in trouble because of George’s infidelity, a final shot at stardom comes in the form of the anticipated appearance by Hollywood heavyweight, Frank Capra, to a matinee, with intent of auditioning the couple for his upcoming cinematic remake of The Scarlet Pimpernel. “It’s a couple of plays within a play,” laughs Cathy Durham, director. “It’s a fast, madcap romp.” Of course, in good face fashion – with five

slamming doors, and all - everything that can go wrong, does, not the least, confusion between which play they are performing. “We’re very happy; we’ve got new doors,” said Durham of the very integral part of this and most traditional farces. In the role that brought Carol Burnett (Tony-nominated for her performance) back to Broadway after a three-decade absence, Christa Pare, whose voice is familiar to local radio listeners of Variety 104, plays Charlotte Hay. “This is a great showcase for a person’s talent. Christa gives a high energy performance,” said Durham As George Hay, the philandering husband, Andy Davidson, who has been with SVTC since very early on, is taking on one of his most demanding roles to date. “Again, this a great showcase for his talent.” Rounding off the cast are Marion Barnes, Charlotte’s “deaf as a door nail” mother, and source of “some great lines in the play;” Stephanie Carriere as Rosalind, the daughter;

Picture from the cast of SVTC’s production of Moon Over Buffalo, are (in front L-R) Andy Davidson and Kyle Beaudette. In back (L-R) are Christa Pare and Stephanie Carriere. Grant Reso, as Howard her clueless, fiancé; Kyle Beaudette, plays Paul, an actor and love interest; Alison Latimer is Eileen, another company actor; and Cameron MacPhee, is Richard, a lawyer. The production and crew are headed by Allison Main, producer, and Mike Petrynka, stage manager. Moon over Buffalo runs May 2, 3, 8, 9, 10 at 7:30; and May 4, matinee 1:30, at Dream

Builders Studios, 2107 Second St., W. Tickets are $20 (plus handling fee were applicable) and can be purchased at admission.com, at the Civic Complex box office and at the door.

Cornwall. A statement from Flaherty’s family was released Thursday afternoon: “Christine Elliott and her triplet sons, John, Galen and Quinn would like to make Canadians aware that her beloved husband and father passed away peacefully today in Ottawa. We appreciate that he was so well supported in his public life by Canadians from coast to

Flaherty served as an Ontario MPP from 1995 to 2005. Until March 2014, he served as Canada’s Minister of Finance and Minister Responsible for the Greater Toronto Area.

Doubling down on derby: Winning big against cystic fibrosis ADAM.BRAZEAU@TC.TC

CORNWALL, Ontario – Knowing the stakes are high for one player’s son as he battles the deadly lung disease, a local sports team hosted a casino fundraiser in support of Cystic Fibrosis Canada. The Seaway Roller Derby Girls (SRDG) raised $4,300 (Scotiabank matched $2,000) for the Cornwall branch of the charity on Friday, April 11 at the Spotlight Hall. Nearly 100 people tested their luck at blackjack, roulette, and poker on 11 casino tables manned by volunteers and derby girls. SRDG’s Angele ‘Reckless Angel’ Kisnics spearheaded the event with the support of her roller derby league. Her teammate Linda ‘Lynch An-Aideur’ Lynch knows the disease all too well. Lynch’s 16-year-old son Myles was diagnosed with it at an early age. Supporting Cystic Fibrosis Canada is now

a priority to all SRDG members. “We did it for Linda,” said Kisnics. “The event was also a way to guarantee everyone went home a winner, regardless of their final chip count or poker face.” Kisnics credits Cornwall’s PartyTime Entertainment for their major role in the success of the fundraiser. In addition to the gambling tables, the event planning/rental company supplied media and sponsor contacts. “I hope we have this event every year. It’s so energizing,” said Lynch. “It’s about helping everyone with cystic fibrosis find a cure.” For years she has wanted to host a fundraiser, but constant hospital visits to Ottawa and Toronto have completely filled her schedule. “I’ve always been active, so to be able to work as one with the disease and athletic recreational activities is very fulfilling,” she said. Kim Baird, Cystic Fibrosis Canada Cornwall chapter president, said the event

Olymel, UAP benefit from province’s cash injection Adding to Ontario’s funding, the company has undertaken a major investment in the facility to allow greater flexibility in the production of a wider variety of products such as smoked products like pork ham, picnic hams and jowls. UAP’s new logistics centre, which employs 38 people, will benefit from $324,463 in EOTF funding. The provincial cash boost will help the company increase its distribution while modernizing its warehouse management system. The centre is located on County Road 36, just a few minutes west of Cornwall.

will help bring awareness to the cause and fund vital cystic fibrosis research in Cornwall and SDG. “The Seaway Roller Derby Girls did an amazing job putting this together,” said Baird. After working with the cystic fibrosis

community for 25 years, she has seen the toll this disease can take on a person and their family. “I applaud them for their energy. They fight a tireless fight,” she said. For more information, visit cysticfibrosis.ca.

Agape Centre celebrates volunteers Adam Brazeau ADAM.BRAZEAU@TC.TC

CORNWALL, Ontario – The Agape Centre in Cornwall marked annual National Volunteer Week by celebrating the irreplaceable work that volunteers contribute to their organization. “We literally could not function without our volunteers,” said Kendra Smith, Agape Centre volunteer coordinator. The local food bank and soup kitchen’s volunteer recognition awards were handed out on Friday, April 11 at the Agape Centre in the St. Columban’s Room. The theme this year was: ‘Volunteers create the magic.’ In February, more than 1,700 volunteer hours were given to the Agape Centre - the equivalent of 12 full-time employees. “Volunteers play a crucial role at the Agape Centre,” said Smith. “Oftentimes people come here as a last resource. For many in our community, we are the last stop, a place to get a hot nutritious meal, groceries, clothing, and compassion.” Certificates were presented to volunteers who have met milestones over the past year, celebrating one, five or 10 years of service.

Each weekend soup kitchen service group received a certificate of appreciation. Last, but certainly not least, a volunteer of the year award was handed to each department, as well as the volunteer choice award (a volunteer nominated for recognition by a fellow volunteer). The Volunteer of the Year Award was given to Cornwall resident Marilyn Rondeau. For five years, she has volunteered for two days a week in the soup kitchen and one afternoon a week in the food bank. “I love helping those who really need help. It’s a good feeling,” said Rondeau, 59. “A lot of people really need food in our community, and they’re really nice people. Many of our clients come here for the food and stay for the company. Whether it’s serving hot meals, helping out at food drives or prepraring meal packages, she always keeps a smile to help motivate everyone around her. “Head on down to the Agape, we need 23767 115 Thorncliffe Park“It’s Drivethis feeling youDocket: your help,” she said. get Toronto Ontario Client: 247 - Mazda whenM4H you1M1 help someone who needs it.”Job Name: April Ontario News Alyssa Blais, Agape executiveProduction director,Contact: says Daniel Abebe Tel 416•696•2853 Rondeau makes people feel welcome at the food bank and soup kitchen. “We really appreciate having her,” said Kendra Smith, Agape Centre volunteer coordinator, Marilyn Rondeau, Agape Centre Volunteer Blais.

CORNWALLHONDA: Newly independent dealership delivers classic service

“I moved here for the opportunity to run the dealership and enjoy a city with better living,” he said. “A lot of people here don’t believe it, but it’s a much better lifestyle.” Cornwall Honda, recipient of the 2011 Honda Canada Quality Dealer Award, carries a fleet of new and used mint-condition models that come equipped with the highest safety features available. Honda’s ‘Safety for Everyone’ campaign started in the ‘90s when the company decided that advanced levels of safety would be available in all cars regardless of price. All of their vehicles perform extremely well in crash tests, and come equipped with highly innovative pedestrian safety features. “The main philosophy is we won’t compromise the safety of a vehicle for price,” said Woolley. “Our least expensive fit has the same amount of safety that our $50,000 top-line Pilot has.” Improvements in comfort and fuel efficiency, plus revised stylish looks have been made to popular models like the Honda Civic, Accord, CR-V, Fit, Odyssey, Ridgeline, CR-Z, Accord Crosstour, and Hybrid.

CORNWALL, Ontario – In the Cornwall Honda showroom, one thing is for sure - every driver there is revved up about service and smiling about performance. Bill Woolley, the new owner of the dealership, said this year’s models are going back to what gave Honda its great image. “The competition called us over-engineered cars, we build our vehicles better than the average, that’s why they’re superior and last a lot longer,” said Woolley. “The product is phenomenal. And contrary to what people think, they’re right in the market place for pricing.” For over 30 years, the dealership has been located at 1200 Brookdale Avenue, on the city’s main artery. The transition to becoming locally owned is as fresh as the paint on Honda’s 2014 lineup. Cornwall Honda’s new owner and operator has been with the company since ’94, and the local branch since ’07 when he moved to Cornwall from the Toronto area. Leaving behind traffic jams, giant malls, and the constant rush for outdoor recreation, picturesque shorelines, and the time to soak it all in.

New transparency policy a step in the right direction Todd Lihou TODD.LIHOU@TC.TC

Transparency among city council members got a boost this week when councillors, by a razor-thin majority, created a new policy that now forces them to declare if they sit on an outside board or agency that is being debated for a funding increase or the like. Call it a victory for those who want councillors to be as up-front as they can about their dealings outside city hall. Make no mistake about it – while the clerk’s department when to great pains to call this a transparency policy, it’s really only about one thing: conflict of interest. While the Municipal Conflict of Interest Act and this new policy are two different things, many in the public will see them as one in the same… and who could blame them? The real reason this policy was created is because some councillors volunteer their time on outside boards. Poor Elaine MacDonald has been forced to bear the brunt of the spotlight because of her time as a member of the Agape Centre board. Critics have suggested she should recuse

herself from council debates when it comes to funding Agape projects with municipal money. I agree with the naysayers, not because MacDonald is up to anything, but because the perception is she’s wearing two hats when it reality she should only wear one. So now she has to announce her membership on the Agape board before debating or voting on anything at city hall related to that agency. It smacks of closing the barn door after the horses have been stolen, or whatever, because after all this talk if one doesn’t know that MacDonald is on the Agape board, or that Denis Carr works for Heart of the City, then there’s something wrong. Creating the policy is a step in the right direction, too bad it almost got shelved again Monday night. Mayor Bob Kilger broke a 5-5 tie when he voted in favour of creating the policy. Councillors are at odds over some of the language in the new policy, specifically who gets to make complaints should one of the members contravene the policy, and the measures that can take place in closed session to censure that individual. “If a member repeatedly refuses to comply with this policy, the head of council shall invite the member to disclose any participation in a board, committee or organization, for the sake of transparency and public knowledge. Council

may, by majority vote in-camera, reprimand the member.” Critics at the council table argue it’s ludicrous for a transparency policy to include language that keeps debate concerning a councillor’s conduct behind closed doors. But let’s call a spade and spade - what they’re really mad about is having their knuckles wrapped by other members for stepping out of line. The Municipal Conflict of Interest law has left it up to members of council to decide for themselves if they should recuse themselves from debate. The city’s new policy now opens the door for other councillors to call out an individual if those other council members feel the rules have been broken.

I’d love to be around for the first time someone like Gerry Samson suggests to Denis Thibault that the latter has forgotten to make a declaration about being a member of an outside board. Talk about an argument (read: fight) worth the price of admission. Thibault, using some colourful language that can’t be repeated in a family newspaper but apparently can be uttered in council chambers, suggested Monday night he wouldn’t receive such criticism lightly. The fact is, by way of council’s vote this week, the perception is that council is trying to make itself as transparent as possible. It’s now up to those same councillors, and perhaps some new ones later this year, to make sure the new rules are followed.

Mayor Phil was one-of-a-kind Claude McIntosh Mac’s Musings EDITORIAL@CORNWALLSEAWAYNEWS.COM

Nobody enjoyed being mayor more than Phil Poirier, nor did any mayor work harder at serving the people of Cornwall. It was a labour of love. Perhaps that is why last summer he contemplated a mayoral run in the October 2014 election. Those plans were put on hold last fall when he suffered serious health problems. By early this year it was obvious that he faced a far bigger fight than a mayoral campaign that would not be. Phil was elected mayor in 1988. Citing the need to spend more time with his busienss, he didn’t seek re-election, but he returned to city hall in 2003 with a stunning victory over incumbent Brian Sylvester who was seeking a third straight term. Three years later, he finished a disappointing third, far behind winner Bob Kilger and former councillor Korey Kennedy. As disappointed as he was on election night, he was a class act in conceding defeat to Kilger, unlike the cocky hot headed Kennedy who went on a wild rant, scolding voters for not electing him, said they would regret it and vowed never to return. Over the years, Phil maintained a strong interest in what was happening at city hall. He never flaunted it, but the passage of time proved him to be a man with keen vision. Remember his support for a wave pool that was struck down by a tsunami of well orchestrated opposition and the vilification of the mayor? Now the refrain is that the city made a mistake with a dumbed

down version. And it was Phil who wanted the city to jump at the opportunity to buy the federal harbour property for $1. That idea was shot down by council and administration. He was an advocate of sharing services with our neighbouring municipalities, especially in economic development but there was little will around the council table where too many wore blinders. The City of Montreal recognized Phil’s management skills. In the early 1990s he made the short list for the city manager’s position, a remarkable feat for somebody from outside Quebec. His return to city hall in 2003 got off to a bad start and grew worse as time went on. It was arguably the most dysfunctional council in recent memory. He found himself battling administration and a fractured council, some of whom were on a mission to chase him out of office. If Phil supported something, they were against it. If Phil was against, they were for it. It was back to the Monday night gong show. Just five months into his tenure, one member of the gang confided that “we thought he would have quit by now.” Suddenly, the mayor’s expenses became a big issue. Council decided to review the expenses every month. It became a circus. Expenses were never an issue before and haven’t since. It was a blatant beat-up-on-Phil exercise. One of his credit card receipts found its way to Kennedy, the gang’s pitbull. The young councillor questioned whether the signature on the receipt was really Phil’s. Several other councillors pounced on the issue. One even suggested a police investigation. The receipt was for $27 from a local restaurant. The staff of the

restaurant recalled the mayor being there for lunch on the date and time in question. Overlooked was the fact that a credit card receipt with the credit card number was being waved about in public. The CAO promised a full investigation into who leaked the receipt. Despite the fact it didn’t take a Sherlock Holmes to figure it out, the alleged probe hit a wall. The harder Phil tried to work with council, the harder it became to work with council. Somehow, he survived. But it cost him re-election. Just as they do in sports, voters decided it was easier to get rid of the “coach” rather than the entire team (council). He deserved better. RIP Phil. TRIVIA Name of the orphanage that stood at the corner of Pitt and Sydney streets? TRIVIA ANSWER Judge P.C. Bergeron was instrumental in starting the Our Citizens of Tomorrow (OCOT) youth program in the 1930s. Disturbed by the rise in juvenile deliquency, the magistrate joined with truant officer Joe “Skip) St. Denis to kickstart the program. SPORTS STUFF Dale Hawerchuk is a hockey dad who might have the best seat in the house to watch his son play in the Ontario Hockey League. Ben Hawerchuk was drafted in the sixth round (109th overall) by the Barrie Colts who are coached by his father, Hockey Hall of Famer and ex-Cornwall Royals star. The left winger is 5-8, 150 pounds. As for Ben having an inside track come training camp, dad joked, “He knows he isn’t going to get any breaks with me.” The Colts selected Jackson Thompson of Bainsville in the 12th round. ... Montreal Canadiens assistant coach Gerard Gallant was a

key member of the 1979-80 Sherbrooke Beavers who lost to the Royals in the Quebec Junior Hockey League final round. IN THE REAR-VIEW MIRROR Noting our mention of kids having paper routes, Bernie Levere recalls having the largest StandardFreeholder route in the city during the 1950s 285 customers. On delivery day he folded every newspaper and would heave them onto porches while riding his bike. Collection day took him almost three hours. ... The first Kentucky Fried Chicken restaurant on Augustus Street, just south of Second Street. It was owned by Charlie Lawn. A snack pack went for 95 cents. HERE & THERE The Conservatives (Jim McDonell), New Democratic Party (Elaine MacDonald) and Liberals (John Earle) in Stormont-Dundas-South Glengarry are revving up their engines in anticipation of a spring provincial election. Now it is up to Deputy Preem Andrea to drop the flag and get the race started. And when it does start, don’t count out the Libs who are busy buying votes, using our money, with giveaways aimed at voter rich Greater Toronto Area (GTA) where a Basset Hound can get elected if it is decked out in red. SEEN & HEARD Kudos to Cornwall resident Ken MacLennan, an 85-year-old retired public school board superintendent, for taking it upon himself to challenge Ontario’s mandatory testing for driver’s aged 80 and over. He laid out his case before three judges in an Ottawa courtroom last week. He was up against two lawyers representing the Ontario government. The judicial panel reserved its decision. The odds are stacked against the feisty senior, but he isn’t going down without a fight.

A shout out to Mark MacDonald Ed Allard edallard@cogeco.ca

Open letters seem to be in season, so here is mine, to Mark MacDonald. Mark, I realize you have the interests of Cornwall’s residents at heart and you really want to do something positive for the community, and if it just happens to spin off into a few extra votes come October, well – bonus! Though I’m sure that never crossed your mind. I think you’ve got this protest thing down pat by now, but permit me to offer a few thoughts. If my neighbour did anything on his property without first consulting me, then dumping a shack on his lawn and publicly calling him a bully is certainly the first thing I’d think of. If he was bigger than me, I might

think about it a bit longer, but that’s just me. A lot of fiery, fearless rhetoric usually works, especially with a megaphone. It’s just too bad our local police have no sense of history being made, or a sense of humour for that matter. But this neighbour doesn’t even live here, so it might make more sense to take your protest out of the unfrequented regions of our port and into his front yard. Maybe you and your volunteers could chain yourselves and your pretty pink shack next to the eternal flame on Parliament Hill. That might make a difference! It’s right downtown, so a lot more people would notice you. You could probably end up on national TV and rally expat Cornwallites from every corner of the country. I’m sure they’d all want to rush over and offer support, just like all our local residents have done here. The police surely wouldn’t bother you on hallowed ground … and the poobahs at Transport Canada are just a stone’s throw

away, so they’d have to notice. What could go wrong? Now, about that pink shack. I heard you were employing child labour and bypassing the painters’ guild. Tsk, tsk. It’s not a good political move to risk upsetting the Children’s Aid Society and Mothers Without Borders. And you might have trouble getting help the next time you want your ceiling painted. This talk about a referendum might not be the best strategy either. Just mentioning the R word causes uneasy shivers up and down the spine of every true blue (or is it red and white?) Canadian. Support for the concept has tanked, if you’ll forgive the expression. The word is about to be erased from the official Canadian dictionary, both English and French versions. So, it might be better to talk about something else. Spreading fear about chemicals leaking into the river from brand new, state of the art, corrosion resistant tanks is kind of iffy, too. After all, it’s salt and 90% of the world’s

water is full of it. So are storm sewers every spring and you know where that goes. More harmful things are passing by Cornwall on top of the water every day (and night). Some of them are just wrapped in plastic bags! Of course, an earthquake could happen, but then people will worry more about all the local gas stations than a couple of salt tanks. Protesting underground gas tanks might have possibilities though… Here’s a final thought. When complete, the tanks will protrude less than two feet above the ground. The steel mill and warehouse are a bigger blight on the landscape, but they were there first. Since you’ll be in Ottawa anyway, maybe you could ask about planting some trees and grass around the tanks, put in park benches, and so on; maybe add your pink shack off to one side. It could be marketed as an historical park – the site of the great tank protest of 2014. And that’s the way I see it.

There’s an easy fix to the Hydro One problems Dear Editor, Hydro One and OPG. What’s with all the greed and incompetence? The answer and the solution are simple. I first met Ontario Hydro people when I started in business in 1971. There are two groupings: the workers and the management. Typically, the management was quite aloof. The further up the chain they were, the more arrogant. When Ontario Hydro was broken into

components of Hydro One, OPG, OPA and ESA, that attitude of “we know best “ was transmitted. Nothing was ever done about the culture that grows in a monopoly because subsequent Boards of Directors were all clones on the Ontario Hydro Board. These Boards were originally selected by the Government. The replacements selfselect. These men and women of “ the old boys club” are intelligent but not interested in change or improvement. Typically, members serve 2 or 3 terms and

within 10 years are all replaced. There is no excuse for the current 11 year Government to blame the Government of the past. The solution is: get rid of all the existing Boards and put in completely new ones. One clear instruction would be that the wages, bonuses etc. of any CEO will never be higher than that of the Premier of Ontario. That will jolt the systems into meaningful change. The argument presented is that these agencies need to compete with the private sector to obtain top talent. Let the “talent” go.

These, essentially government employees, will get the shock of their lives when they find their sense of entitlement is not appreciated in the private sector. There will be no lack of talented replacements for the wages, perks and gold plated pension plans even at the reduced level.

Sigh of relief in Quebec SJESSA@SYMPATICO.CA

It is a huge sigh of relief for the vast majority of caring and right thinking people of Quebec. They have delivered a strong message to those who want to destroy Canada. The provincial Liberal party’s stunning and massive victory at the polls puts an end of the constant threat of referendum and Quebec separation. Nearly two thirds of Quebecers have been telling pollsters they do not want another referendum. The Liberals, under the brain surgeon Philippe Couillard , captured 70 seats in the 125-member legislature while Parti Quebecois, under Pauline Marois, were reduced to 30

seats from 54, in the most divisive and fierce provincial elections. Like the past winter, this was the toughest election campaign with a lot of mudslinging and accusations. Marois, a seasoned politician and Quebec’s first female premier, lost her own seat and is stepping down. She went into the Quebec election extremely confident she could run a campaign built on dividing the population. People of Quebec are a strange breed. They do not vote for things they like. Rather, they vote for things they don’t like. The majority of Quebecers do not want another referendum on separating their province from the rest of Canada. They were also not too enthused about the very divisive charter of values. Marois tried to convince Quebecers the secular charter was introduced to face the imaginary threat from its religious minorities.

She the only way to ward of this threat was the legalization of religious discrimination. The charter would have prevented Sikhs working for the government from wearing turbans, Jews wearing kippahs and Muslim women from wearing hijabs and others displaying religious symbols. The charter had been challenged by groups who were convinced it violated the most fundamental constitutional rights of freedom of religion and was aimed at creating second class citizens. They argued the charter would result in the firing of thousands of religious minority employees from government offices, daycares and hospitals. Polls had initially suggested the charter was popular but it became apparent during the campaign many did not care about the charter. The Marois government lasted about 18 months. The economy is still in bad shape, people are losing jobs, others are moving out

of the province and also the infrastructure and health care is crumbling fast. Quebecers are more worried about jobs, health care, the economy, human rights and the environment. But, Marois used a loophole in its fixed date election act to call a snap vote at an opportune time when many Quebeckers are paying attention to how people dress and what languages they speak at home and at work. A new election in Quebec was originally scheduled for Oct.3, 2016. Many people who normally stay away from voting sent a strong message to the PQ. Couillard has a big job ahead of him. She will have to perform critical surgery to boost Quebec’s economy. The first thing he has to do is to introduce a budget which will pave the way for recovery. Reviving the local economy must be the principal focus and the new Liberal premier will have to play a constructive role in keeping Canada united and strong.

UPDATE TO THE PARKING GARAGE AT CORNWALL SQUARE At Cornwall Square, one of our top priorities is the safety and well-being of our patrons, tenants and the broader community we serve. This holds true for both the owner and Triovest who is the manager of Cornwall Square. Being responsible for our facility and to the people we do business with is a key principle for both companies and it underlies everything we’re doing at Cornwall Square. The project to replace the pedestrian bridges which connect the parking garage to the shopping centre is well underway. The future work will follow a strategic plan that adheres to municipal and provincial guidelines, prevailing codes, and standards.

What is happening with your parking garage and pedestrian bridges?

The replacement of the pedestrian bridges is a big project. It will require some adjustments from everyone who accesses the mall and it will take some time to finish. Cornwall Square will try to minimize any disruptions but in the end it will all be worthwhile. Cornwall Square will be undertaking a coordinated communications effort to inform everyone interested in this project. Below are questions and answers that may address some of your concerns. We encourage you to visit our website for more information at www. cornwallsquare.com.

How will I access Cornwall Square during the Construction?

We are in the process of replacing the pedestrian bridges from the parking garage to the mall. Safety during this project is a top priority. The work on the parking garage at Cornwall Square results from ongoing planning and management. Everything we are doing and everything we plan on doing will be guided by a reputable national engineering firm. The scope and requirements of the project requires that we work with our governmental partners.

As the roadway between Cornwall Square and the parking garage will be closed, vehicles will access the outside parking and parking garage via Water and Sydney Street. Signage will be installed for ease of traffic flow. One pedestrian bridge will remain open at all times for access to the second level of Cornwall Square. During this project, Sears will re-open their Pitt Street entrance to accommodate customers.

During construction will Cornwall Square and the parking garage remain open?

Temporary City Transit and Handi-Transit drop-off/pick-up will be located by the Sears Pitt Street entrance. Taxi service will continue in its current location in the exterior parking area.

Will I be able to access public transit?

Cornwall Square and the parking garage will remain open during the entire project. Directional signage will be in place surrounding Should I be worried about using the and throughout the property guiding customers to Cornwall Square and the parking garage.

The existing and ongoing work will follow a strategic plan that adheres to municipal and provincial guidelines, prevailing codes, and standards. When is the pedestrian bridge replacement

project expected to be completed?

We plan for the pedestrian bridge replacement project to be completed in summer 2014. These dates should be considered estimates as there are external factors that impact timing. We will do our best to update the Cornwall community as to exact timing as the construction process evolves.

How do I find out what is going on?

We will continue to undertake a coordinated communications effort to inform everyone interested in Cornwall Square about what we are doing with the parking garage project and why. We intend to provide information throughout the project in 2014. That being said if you have any questions about the parking garage and pedestrian bridges please contact the Property Manager directly so we can share the facts with you.

Fleming college lockdown ‘scary’ situation for Cornwall mother The 38-year-old mother says her daughter sent several online messages detailing the incident as it progressed. “I’m locked in a room in the learning commons.

Ellis was more than relieved when reports came flooding in from Peterborough media sources and authorities at around 3:00 p.m. that the college was back in order. “I was terrified. It’s scary knowing your baby is so far away and you can’t be there to protect her,” she said. “I am definitely grateful my daughter is safe...and appreciate Fleming College for ensuring that.” Rose is a recent graduate of Holy Trinity Catholic Secondary School.

was observed walking up the Fleming College laneway carrying a rifle. “Fleming College was placed in lockdown mode for safety of staff and students,” said PLCP Constable Keith Calderwood. “No other sightings have since been reported.” PLCP and Fleming Security completed a check of the college and residence buildings. Calderwood added: “At this time, it appears that the single source information is unfounded and the lockdown was lifted at 2:10 p.m.”

With the building season just getting started, let’s go over some of the do’s and don’ts of ordering lumber and building supplies. What’s our goal? Only one, avoiding errors. Errors create lost time and bad feelings. Strategy to avoiding errors? Assume nothing. Plus, further presume that the person you’re dealing with (regardless of their professional qualifications) has difficulty pairing up their socks in the morning. Therefore, be excruciatingly clear on all instructions. Next, understand human nature, which, after 30 years in retail has demonstrated one undeniable fact: basically, people don’t listen. What’s even more a matter of concern is that they often don’t listen to themselves. As a result, the potential for error between two individuals who are talking, but not really listening, without the initiative of either one Chris taking notes, is almost guaranteed. So, understanding that errors will haunt us every day of our lives, with the best case scenario having us luckily avoiding the big ones, we stubbornly move forward. Rule number one, have a plan, on paper. Even after 30 years in dealing with the public, I find mind reading, eye to eye communication, and interpreting sizes and dimensions by means of hand signals, really difficult. So, whether we’re talking a bird house or a multi-level deck, a picture, even the most modest of cave man type drawing, is still worth a

couple of hundred words. Next, make a thorough list, even if it’s one item. Usually it’s the coffee runner, so we’re not always talking the most enlightened member of the crew, but the number of times we’ve seen a piece of paper with simply “1-lb. screws” scribbled across, makes you wonder how he ever found our numbered address in the first place. The coffee list is extremely precise “1-double/double, 2-black and one ½ coffee/ hot chocolate”, but as far as the length of screws, and whether they’re for concrete, wood or drywall, well, it’s back on the cell phone we go. If you’re the deck builder, make up your list of supplies and either present it in person at the store, or relay it to us over the phone. Unless it’s a pretty straight forward order, going over the list in person is always the better scenario. With Emard the number of improved products and/or hardware options available, it’s very likely we may have suggestions concerning better building concepts. Finally, avoid the guy on the roof, to fellow in the doorway, to person on the phone, to the sales clerk relay. By the time various accents, dialects, wind conditions and obscure noises enter into the performance, we can’t tell whether you’re requesting lumber or a pastrami sandwich on rye. Things are always more clearly relayed when the person who needs the product places the order. Good building.

The Great River Flows On

Citizen Scientists Making a Difference In 2013 the St. Lawrence River Institute of Environmental Sciences received a grant of $24,970 from the Ontario Great Lakes Guardian Community Fund to support algae research in local waterways. The project, called “Algae Alert” invited shoreline homeowners and volunteers to assist in a study of algae in the waters of the Lake St. Francis region of the St. Lawrence River. Fifty keen volunteers were recruited and trained to sample water from streams located throughout the Raisin Region Watershed. “We needed people to help us gather data and provide observations about algae in local streams and along Lake St. Francis,” said Dr. Andy Bramburger, from the River Institute, “From our past work, we know that algae in the water can be a big problem, especially when it produces the types of toxins that can make us sick.” Many residents along the St. Lawrence draw their household drinking water directly from the St. Lawrence River. Over several weeks last summer Citizen Scientists gathered information needed to identify the location, frequency, and types of algae that have been occurring locally. The River Institute is now using this data to measure the water quality parameters that are associated with algae incidences, and will be developing an analytical model to help control these occurrences. The results of this project and this predictive model will be shared with management agencies of the St. Lawrence River, and other waterways in Eastern Ontario.

Kaniatarowanenneh The Great Waterway The Mohawks of Akwesasne call the St. Lawrence River, Kaniatarowanenneh or “Great Waterway”. For over 10,000 years Mohawks have lived, farmed, fished and hunted along her shores. When the St. Lawrence River at Cornwall was declared an Area of Concern by the International Joint Commission 30 years ago, Akwesasne communities had already been experiencing the effects of industrial pollution for some time. At that time they joined forces with government representatives, concerned citizens, and stakeholders to create the St. Lawrence River Institute of Environmental Sciences, an independent, nonpartisan Institute focusing on environmental fresh water research, education, and community action. The Mohawk Council of

Akwesasne (MCA) and its Environmental branch (as well as the St. Regis Mohawk Tribe Environmental Division) are key contributors to research in and along the St. Lawrence River by offering a unique balance of scientific expertise, traditional knowledge, and public education. In the summer of 2013 the MCA funded students Katsitsiaroroks Mitchell-Smoke, Neena Miller, April Terrance, and Cynthia Lazore to work with the River Institute on the St Lawrence. They researched mercury in Walleye, located Map Turtle and Eel populations, and studied Cutlip Minnows. On February 15th, the MCA partnered with the St. Lawrence River Restoration Council to host Iakwanonhwes ne Kaniaterehere (We Love the River) at the Akwesasne Winter Carnival. 175 people came out to visit a variety of River related exhibits and participate in discussion on the Great Waterway. For information on MCA environmental programs and partnerships on the St. Lawrence River, contact Peggy Pyke -Thompson, Program Manager with the MCA Tehotiienawakon - Environment Program at 613- 936- 1548 (ext. 1038).

Until a few decades ago, industrial waste and other pollutants discharged directly into the St. Lawrence River. These contaminants settled and built up in high concentrations in the sediment along the Cornwall waterfront. That sediment contamination is one of the main reasons that the St. Lawrence area at Cornwall was designated as a Great Lakes hotspot, or Area of Concern. The chief sediment contaminant is mercury, a toxic substance that stays in the environment for years. With stricter environmental regulations and the closure of several industries, cleaner sediment has begun to settle over three key areas of sediment contamination, and a natural cap has been created. The development of a set of controls administered by a team of environmental partners works to ensure that contaminated sediment in specific areas is not being disturbed. Partners include the City of Cornwall, Mohawk Council of Akwesasne, Raisin Region Conservation Authority, Ontario Ministries of the Environment and Natural Resources, Environment Canada and the federal Dept. of Fisheries and Oceans. Developed in 2005, the Cornwall Sediment Strategy calls for special care to be taken in 3 designated zones where contaminated sediment is known to be. Long-term environmental monitoring is showing that while levels of mercury are still elevated, levels in surface sediment have decreased over the last 30 years and deeper, more contaminated sediment is slowly being covered over naturally with cleaner deposits.

Healthy Shoreline = Healthy River Increased shoreline development, deforestation, loss of habitat, invasive species, and the planting of single variety lawn grasses have led to a loss of healthy riverside ecosystems along the St. Lawrence River. To address this problem, the Raisin Region Conservation Authority (RRCA) with help from the Great Lakes Guardian Community Fund and local community partners are implementing a Shoreline Stewardship program. This program provides landowners, living along the St. Lawrence River, with the tools necessary to naturalize their waterfront properties. By using trees, shrubs and perennials that are native to this area and replacing a monoculture grass lawn with a variety of indigenous plants, a healthier river bank habitat can be re-established. Re-landscaping shoreline property to a more natural state can also address concerns of erosion, nuisance wildlife (such as Canada geese), excessive aquatic growth, and algae blooms. Planting shoreline and upland plants provide food and cover for a variety of birds, amphibians, insects and mammals. Stream bank plantings also enhance aquatic habitat for fish. For more information on the Shoreline Stewardship program, contact RRCA at 613 938-3611 or visit www.rrca.on.ca.

What does the Cornwall Sediment Strategy Mean for You? To ensure that sediments are not disturbed in areas that are zoned as contaminated, there are specific rules surrounding waterfront projects such as building a dock or restoring a shoreline. Plans must first be reviewed with the Raisin Region Conservation Authority and by agencies that belong to the Cornwall Sediment Strategy Accord which coordinates the approval process. To see the map of contaminated sediment affected zones along Cornwall’s waterfront and for more information visit the Cornwall Sediment Strategy documents at www.rrca.on.ca or call Lissa Deslandes, RRCA Regulations Officer, for more information at 613938-3611 (ext. 237).

Farmers Grow a Healthier Environment Ontario East Alternative Land Use Services (ALUS) is a community based, farmer led and delivered program with the simple goal of creating a healthy environment that sustains agriculture, wildlife, and natural spaces for all Canadians. ALUS recognizes and works to enhance the key role farmers play as land stewards by increasing nature’s benefits through the naturalization of marginal and fragile areas, currently under production. In exchange for these benefits the farmer receives an annual payment per acre enrolled in the ALUS program. The ALUS process is not prescriptive, which allows for greater flexibility when it comes to project design and the establishment of wetlands, buffers, pollinator habitat, wildlife structures, and tree planting. Ontario East ALUS is well on its way to achieving its goals with two demonstration projects currently established and another eight in the planning phase. If you are interested in more information please contact Brendan Jacobs @ 613-938-3611 (ext.234).

No matter which decision is finally made concerning the status of the St. Lawrence River (Cornwall) Area of Concern, whether this area is De-listed or deemed an Area in Recovery, we must look to the future. There were numerous recommendations on existing environmental issues that were not identified as urgent in the 1997 Stage II Remedial Action Plan Report, “Great Lakes, Great River”. Many of these concerns are still relevant today and have yet to be completely addressed. Matters continue to emerge such as new chemicals or additional invasive species. Other issues such as new development along the River, spills, and non- point source pollution continue to be a challenge to River health. We must remain vigilant. There needs to be a local group that oversees the monitoring and government action that must continue, one that is proactive about emerging issues, ensuring that we do not backslide forcing future generations into cleaning up our messes. If you are interested in being an active part of the River’s future why not contact the Remedial Action Plan (RAP) office at 613-936-6620 (ext.229) or e-mail kcooper @riverinstitute.ca.

Permis d’affaires: des améliorations pour les entreprises Des changements dans l’émission de permis d’affaires pourraient rendre la vie plus facile aux entrepreneurs de Gatineau. Gatineau étudiait depuis quelques semaines un projet-pilote dans le secteur de Hull pour améliorer l’émission des permis qui est problématique depuis la fusion des cinq ex-villes. Mais ce projet-pilote ne répondait pas à toutes les attentes et d’autres recommandations avaient été formulées. Selon le président de la Chambre de commerce de Gatineau, Antoine Normand, une de ces recommandations a été acceptée, ce qui devrait permettre de régler un des points les plus importants. «Quand quelqu’un ouvrait une entreprise dans un local commercial, la Ville demandait de déposer une attestation de conformité d’un professionnel. Nous, on disait que si une entreprise s’installait dans un local commercial qui était déjà connu, et qu’il n’y avait pas de changements

physiques dans le commerce, l’entreprise pouvait déposer seulement un affidavit du propriétaire disant qu’aucun changement n’avait été fait.» Vendredi dernier, l’homme d’affaires a eu des nouvelles de deux entreprises en attente de leur permis. Celles-ci ont reçu un courriel de la Ville de Gatineau leur disant que leur affidavit avait été retenu. «C’est une bonne nouvelle, mais il va falloir documenter tout ça», souligne Antoine Normand. Pour lui, ce simple geste rendra plus simples les demandes de permis pour de nombreuses entreprises. De plus, cette situation fait que le permis d’affaires n’est plus considéré comme le certificat d’occupation, ce qui aura d’autres impacts. Certaines entreprises devant obtenir d’autres permis, comme celui d’alcool ou du MAPAQ, devaient attendre d’avoir répondu à toutes les exigences de la Ville,

Maintenant, le permis d’affaires pourra venir avant. «Ils pourront faire le processus des autres demandes de permis en parallèle.» «On vient d’éviter un paquet de tracasseries bureaucratiques pour la majorité des demandeurs», conclut Antoine Normand.

Le fleuve continue de couler

Citoyens scientifiques Changer les choses En 2013, l’Institut des sciences environnementales du fleuve Saint-Laurent a reçu une subvention de 24 970 $ du Fonds d’action communautaire pour la protection des Grands Lacs du gouvernement de l’Ontario afin d’appuyer la recherche d’algues dans les voies navigables locales. Le projet, nommé « Algae Alert », invitait les propriétaires du littoral et les bénévoles à contribuer à une étude des algues dans les eaux du lac Saint-François, dans la région du fleuve Saint-Laurent. On a recruté et formé 50 bénévoles déterminés pour échantillonner l’eau des cours d’eau situés dans l’ensemble du bassin versant de la région de Raisin. De nombreux résidents le long du fleuve Saint-Laurent puisent leur eau potable domestique directement du fleuve Saint-Laurent. L’été dernier, les citoyens scientifiques ont passé plusieurs semaines à recueillir les renseignements nécessaires pour déterminer l’emplacement, la fréquence et les types d’algues présents à l’échelle locale. L’Institut des sciences environnementales du fleuve Saint-Laurent utilise maintenant ces données pour mesurer les paramètres de la qualité de l’eau qui sont associés à la présence d’algues, et il élaborera un modèle analytique pour aider à contrôler ces cas. Les résultats de ce projet et de ce modèle de prévision seront transmis aux organismes de gestion du fleuve Saint-Laurent et d’autres cours d’eau dans l’est de l’Ontario. Ce projet souhaite recueillir davantage de données à l’été 2014. Si vous souhaitez en savoir plus sur les occasions de bénévolat, communiquez avec M. Andy Bramburger au 613-933-6080 (poste 2761).

Vous voulez construire un quai?

Kaniatarowanenneh Le grand cours d’eau Les Mohawks d’Akwesasne appellent le fleuve Saint-Laurent « Kaniatarowanenneh », ce qui signifie « le grand cours d’eau ». Depuis plus de 10 000 ans, les Mohawks vivent, cultivent, pêchent et chassent le long des rives du fleuve. Il y a 30 ans, lorsque la Commission mixte internationale a déclaré que le fleuve Saint-Laurent à Cornwall était un secteur préoccupant, les collectivités d’Akwesasne subissaient les effets de la pollution industrielle depuis un certain temps. À ce moment, elles ont uni leurs forces avec les représentants du gouvernement, les citoyens concernés et les intervenants afin de créer de l’Institut des sciences environnementales du fleuve Saint-Laurent, un institut indépendant et apolitique axé sur la recherche environnementale sur l’eau douce, l’éducation et l’action

communautaire. Le Conseil des Mohawks d’Akwesasne et sa direction de l’environnement (et la division environnementale de la tribu mohawk de St. Regis) sont des contributeurs clés à la recherche à l’intérieur et le long du fleuve Saint-Laurent; ils offrent un équilibre unique d’expertise scientifique, de connaissances traditionnelles et d’éducation du public. Ils ont effectué des recherches sur la présence de mercure dans le doré jaune, repéré des populations de tortues géographiques et d’anguilles ainsi qu’étudié les becs-de-lièvre. Le 15 février, le Conseil des Mohawks d’Akwesasne a collaboré avec le Conseil de restauration du fleuve Saint-Laurent pour tenir un événement appelé « Iakwanonhwes Kaniaterehere » (ce qui signifie « nous aimons la rivière ») au festival d’hiver d’Akwesasne. Au total, 175 personnes sont venues visiter les diverses expositions liées au fleuve et participer à une discussion sur le grand cours d’eau. Pour obtenir des renseignements sur les programmes environnementaux et les partenariats du Conseil des Mohawks d’Akwesasne sur le fleuve Saint-Laurent, veuillez communiquer avec Peggy Pyke-Thompson, gestionnaire du programme

Jusqu’à il y a quelques décennies, des déchets industriels et d’autres polluants étaient rejetés directement dans le fleuve Saint-Laurent. Ces contaminants se sont déposés et accumulés en fortes concentrations dans le sédiment le long du secteur riverain de Cornwall. Cette contamination des sédiments est l’une des principales raisons pour lesquelles la région du fleuve Saint-Laurent à Cornwall a été désignée comme une zone sensible (secteur préoccupant) des Grands Lacs. Le principal contaminant dans les sédiments est le mercure, une substance toxique qui reste dans l’environnement pendant des années. Grâce à des règlements environnementaux plus stricts et à la fermeture de plusieurs industries, des sédiments plus propres ont commencé à se déposer dans trois des zones les plus touchées par la contamination des sédiments, et un plafond naturel a été créé. L’élaboration d’un ensemble de mesures de contrôle administrées par une équipe de partenaires environnementaux vise à s’assurer que les sédiments contaminés dans des zones précises ne sont pas perturbés. Les partenaires comprennent la Ville de Cornwall, le Conseil des Mohawks d’Akwesasne, l’Office de protection de la nature de la région de Raisin, les ministères de l’Environnement et des Ressources naturelles de l’Ontario, Environnement Canada et Pêches et Océans Canada. La stratégie de gestion des sédiments de Cornwall, élaborée en 2005, exige la prise de précautions particulières dans les trois zones désignées où l’on sait que des sédiments contaminés sont présents. La surveillance environnementale à long terme démontre que bien que les niveaux de mercure soient toujours élevés, les concentrations dans les sédiments de surface ont diminué au cours des 30 dernières années et les sédiments de fond plus contaminés sont lentement couverts naturellement par des dépôts plus propres.

Un littoral en santé pour un fleuve en santé L’augmentation de l’aménagement du littoral, la déforestation, la perte de l’habitat, les espèces envahissantes et la plantation d’une seule variété d’herbes à pelouse ont entraîné une perte des écosystèmes riverains en santé le long du fleuve Saint-Laurent. Ce programme fournit aux propriétaires fonciers vivant le long du fleuve Saint-Laurent les outils nécessaires pour naturaliser leurs propriétés riveraines. En utilisant des arbres, des arbustes et des plantes vivaces indigènes de cette zone et en remplaçant une monoculture d’herbes à pelouse par une variété de plantes indigènes, un habitat riverain plus sain peut être rétabli. Le réaménagement des propriétés littorales à un état plus naturel peut aussi répondre aux préoccupations liées à l’érosion, aux espèces nuisibles (p. ex. la Bernache du Canada), à la croissance excessive des plantes aquatiques et la prolifération des algues. La plantation sur le littoral et les hautes terres fournissent de la nourriture et des abris pour une variété d’oiseaux, d’amphibiens, d’insectes et de mammifères. La plantation sur les berges améliore aussi l’habitat aquatique pour les poissons. Pour de plus amples renseignements sur le programme d’intendance du littoral, veuillez communiquer avec l’Office de protection de la nature de la région de Raisin au 613-938-3611, ou visitez l’adresse www.rrca.on.ca.

Que représente la stratégie de gestion des sédiments de Cornwall pour vous? Afin de s’assurer que les sédiments ne sont pas perturbés dans les zones désignées comme contaminées, il existe des règles précises pour les projets dans le secteur riverain, y compris la construction d’un quai ou la restauration d’un littoral. Les plans doivent d’abord être examinés par l’Office de protection de la nature de la région de Raisin et les organismes qui font partie de l’accord sur la stratégie de gestion des sédiments de Cornwall, qui coordonne le processus d’approbation. Pour voir la carte des zones de sédiments contaminés le long du secteur riverain de Cornwall et pour obtenir de plus amples renseignements, consultez les documents de la stratégie de gestion des sédiments de Cornwall à l’adresse www.rrca.on.ca ou communiquez avec Lissa Deslandes, agente de réglementation de l’Office de protection de la nature de la région de Raisin au 613-938-3611 (poste 237).

Les agriculteurs cultivent un environnement plus sain Les Services de diversification des modes d’occupation des sols (ALUS) de l’est de l’Ontario sont un programme dirigé et offert par les agriculteurs ayant pour simple but de créer un environnement sain qui soutient l’agriculture, les espèces sauvages et les espaces naturels pour l’ensemble de la population canadienne. Ce programme reconnaît le rôle clé que jouent les agriculteurs en tant qu’intendants des terres et vise à améliorer ce rôle en augmentant les avantages de la nature grâce à la naturalisation des zones marginales et fragiles en cours de production. En échange de ces avantages, l’agriculteur reçoit un paiement annuel par acre inscrit au programme. Le processus du programme n’est pas normatif, ce qui permet une plus grande souplesse en ce qui concerne la conception du projet et la création de terres humides, de zones tampons, d’habitat des pollinisateurs, de structures fauniques et de plantation d’arbres. Dans l’est de l’Ontario, le programme est en bonne voie d’atteindre ses objectifs; deux projets de démonstration ont été établis, tandis que huit autres sont en phase de planification. Pour obtenir de plus amples renseignements, veuillez communiquer avec Brendan Jacobs au 613-938-3611, poste 234.

Peu importe la décision qui sera finalement prise concernant l’état du secteur préoccupant du fleuve Saint-Laurent (Cornwall), c’est-à-dire qu’il soit radié ou désigné comme en voie de rétablissement, nous devons nous tourner vers l’avenir. De nombreuses recommandations sur les enjeux environnementaux n’ont pas été définies comme urgentes dans le rapport de deuxième étape du plan d’assainissement publié en 1997, intitulé « Great Lakes, Great River ». Bon nombre de ces préoccupations sont toujours pertinentes aujourd’hui et n’ont pas encore été entièrement traitées. Des questions continuent d’apparaître, notamment les nouveaux produits chimiques et les nouvelles espèces envahissantes. D’autres enjeux, comme les nouveaux travaux d’aménagement le long du fleuve, les déversements et la pollution à source non ponctuelle, continuent de représenter un défi pour la santé du fleuve. Nous devons demeurer vigilants. Il faut établir un groupe local pour superviser la surveillance et les mesures du gouvernement qui doivent se poursuivre; ce groupe doit être proactif à l’égard des nouveaux enjeux et s’assurer que nous ne récidivons pas en forçant les générations futures à réparer nos dégâts. Si vous souhaitez participer activement à l’avenir du fleuve, n’hésitez pas à communiquer avec le bureau du plan d’assainissement au 613-936-6620 (poste 229) ou à kcooper@riverinstitute.ca.

« Cornwall : demain, dès aujourd’hui! » Les résidents de Cornwall sont invités à assister à « Cornwall : demain, dès aujourd’hui! », un atelier interactif qui leur offrira la possibilité d’orienter la planification de la croissance et du développement de la ville. L’atelier aura lieu le jeudi 24 avril, de 18 h 30 à 20 h 30, dans le salon B du Complexe civique de Cornwall. Gratuit, l’atelier est ouvert à tous. L’atelier « Cornwall : demain, dès aujourd’hui! » est le deuxième événement public du projet Complete Cornwall au complet, qui a pour objet de mettre à jour le plan officiel de la ville de Cornwall.

« Nous sommes ravis du nombre de résidents qui ont participé à notre premier événement en janvier », a indiqué Ken Bedford, président du Comité directeur du projet du plan officiel et superviseur de la Division de la planification de la ville de Cornwall. « J’espère qu’ils reviendront tous et qu’ils participeront à l’atelier avec autant de dynamisme et d’idées qu’à notre premier événement! J’ai hâte de voir nos citoyens travailler en commun pour forger l’avenir de la ville. » L’événement commencera par deux présentations – l’une sur les dernières tendances adoptées par d’autres municipalités

canadiennes pour se préparer à l’avenir et l’autre sur les projections démographiques et économiques de Cornwall pour les 20 prochaines années. Ces projections sont d’une importance capitale, car elles permettront à la ville de se faire une meilleure idée de la planification qu’elle doit entreprendre en prévision de la croissance prévue. L’événement facilitera l’interaction du public. « Nous demanderons aux résidents de partager leur vision de l’avenir de Cornwall », a indiqué M. Bedford. « Leur vision pourrait bien être celle que nous intégrerons dans notre plan officiel actualisé. »

Coppers serve good food for a great cause CORNWALL, Ontario – Local law enforcement will be serving more than justice at Au Vieux Duluth this Saturday to help raise funds for the Special Olympics. Cornwall police will greet and serve diners free meals at Au Vieux Duluth on April 22 to raise money for Special Olympics Ontario through the Law Enforcement Torch Run. From 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. diners can chose from three dishes: butterfly shrimp, chicken

breast or pork souvlaki served with salad, rice, and potatoes, and a non-alcoholic beverage. Three years ago, Au Vieux Duluth joined forces with the Cornwall Community Police Service (CCPS) to create a unique fundraiser. Already, the partnership has raised over $28,000. “This event gives customers a new experience,” said Alexandre Paradis, restaurant owner. The benefit lunch and supper will feature a silent auction. As diners enjoy their meal, Cornwall comic Mark Vincent will perform in the afternoon and a band will provide the

evening entertainment. “Your free meal will be served to you by a police officer, at the end of your stay you will be asked to make a donation to the Law Enforcement Torch Run,” he said.

Top five nutritional tips for increased sports performance Jason Christoff Get Fit Cornwall JASON@REVOLUTIONWEIGHTLOSSCLINIC.COM

When looking to maximize sports performance, the first thing to consider is hydration levels. A small reduction in optimal hydration levels (water content) can translate into a large reduction in sport performance. It’s hard to replenish diminished hydration levels quickly so it’s best to focus on proper hydration levels either all the time or at least 2-3 days before the big game. First, start with a good quality water choice. Tap water is not optimal because of the toxic effects of fluoride, chlorine and other contaminants common in tap water. Spring water is best and the body performs well if the ppm (parts per million of dissolved solids) is around 350. The ppm reading of bottled water

is listed on the side of each label. Optimal spring waters have dissolved calcium and magnesium levels of near 100ppm and again this is listed on the label of most (if not all) bottled water. So look for spring water choices with total ppm’s around 350 and calcium/calcium ppm levels near 100. Take your body weight in pounds and divide it in half. That is the number of ounces of water you’re supposed to consume every day, between your meals. If you are 200lbs, you’re supposed to drink 100 ounces of spring water daily between your meals. Each 500ml bottle of water contains 16 ounces. Avoid drinking water during your meals, as that will dilute the acid in the stomach and lead to poor energy extraction from the food you consume. A second tip for maximizing sports performance is to eat organic when possible. Not only has organic food been found to contain more nutrition, organic food contains either zero or greatly reduced pesticide

residues. The pesticides commonly used on non organic produce (and commonly used on grains fed to factory farmed animals) are either estrogenic or neurogenic. Basically that means that much non organic produce is either covered in estrogen based chemicals (birth control for the bugs) or neurogenic chemicals, which causes the bugs to have massive organ failures. These toxic chemicals will play havoc with the metabolism of any athlete. When an athlete’s body is polluted, the metabolism will not be able to power the detoxification system and the energy production system at the same time. When an athlete is polluted not as much energy can be diverted to the metabolic systems responsible for sports performance. Chemicals, regardless of source, will make maximum athletic performance metabolically impossible. Eating organic, when ever possible, eliminates the primary source of toxins coming into the body today. The third nutritional tip for increasing sports

performance is chewing food until it’s almost liquid. By chewing food into liquid form, the stomach can better accomplish the first stage of digestion. The first stage of digestion sets the stage for energy and nutrition transfer into the body. I’ve come across people who eat healthy foods at every meal yet the speed of their food consumption has not only placed immense stress on their digestive organs track but the person was also experiencing extreme fatigue because proper digestion was not occurring due tot the speed of eating and the size of the “chunks” reaching the stomach. Sitting down to eat is best. Eating standing up in a rush, even when eating good food, will not give an athlete’s digestive track what it needs to extract the proper nutrition from the food being consumed. All athletes need optimal nutrition to generate optimal performance. In the next article I will explain the two other nutritional tips that can maximize an athlete’s performance.

As we approach this Easter season, I would be very curious and quite intrigued to know whether you are seriously pursuing the path of peace. At this particular time in world history, “peace” is not the right word to accurately describe the present world scene. Rather, words like “conflict, crisis, corruption, and calamity” better tell the true and sad story. With the dark and dismal situation we all face as fellow human beings, I would still valiantly

promote the many-faceted peace which God wants to bring to humanity through His Son Jesus Christ – the Prince of Peace! If we would all genuinely humble ourselves, repent of our foolish ways, and turn in bold faith to Jesus alone, we would find blessed peace in its entire beautiful spectrum. We would find peace with God in terms of spiritual salvation; peace with others in terms of interpersonal reconciliation; peace between and within nations in terms of sincere negotiations; peace within ourselves in terms of deep soul satisfaction. So I would encourage you and also challenge you to pursue peace for all it’s worth, in all its dimensions, and for all its many benefits!

Cornwall Senior Men’s Curling: Bray Rock Bonspiel

Champs

Cornwall Senior Men’s Curling held the Bray Rock Closing Bonspiel, sponsored by Bray Quarries, from March 31st to April 11th, 2014. Twenty nine teams participated with the Nurse rink winning the playoffs.Pictured are lead Harry Webber, second Ray Baker, Senior Men’s President Brian Landry presenting the trophy on behalf of Bray Quarries, third Leland Harms, skip Ian Nurse and Senior Men’s Vice President Gerry Paquette.

On March 19 Holy Trinity Catholic School hosted the annual CDSBEO basketball tournament with 10 schools participating. The Holy Trinity Grade 7 & 8 Girls A team were the winners of the girls A division. First row, from left, are Emily Cuillerier, Olivia Harrington, Samantha Prevost and Rebecca Gilligan. Second row, from left, are Kaitlyn Gilligan, Lina Digirolamo, Mary France Pilon, Alexia Bourget and Chloe Whittaker. Absent from photo is Emily Flaro, Marla Harrington-McNally (coach) and Angela Martell (coach).

Masterfully done! You know, it’s mid May and I doubt that any of my fellow golf enthusiasts have even swung a club. I am sure, some have moved their golf bags from the basement to the garage and maybe grabbed an iron and swung it a few times, just to get the feel of things. But this damn long Canadian winter has cut into our spring golf, big time. So, thank goodness for that special place in Georgia, that place that brings grown men to tears and those watching, to get all choked up. I have no problem admitting that when Bubba Watson broke down and cried his emotional tears on Sunday, I had a hard time holding back too. For those of you with me on this point, ever wonder what makes us get so emotionally attached to those special moments? Passion, the same passion our sporting heroes have in those special moments, translates to our love of the game. Add a little history, tradition and warm music and the water works can easily flow.

the shots that we all know we shouldn’t and do anyway. A few years ago a wise man told me that I needed to learn course management, that was twenty years ago and try as I may, I still hear his voice in my head. Bubba Watson proved on Sunday on the 15th hole, tournament pretty much in the bag, no reason to flirt with disaster, that if you believe in yourself, even the course can’t stand in your way. And to that, I can’t wait to stare at the big ole tree on the 11th at the country club this year, wise mans voice in my head saying, play safe. Sorry wise man, right through or over the top will out way the percentages, Bubba Watson, just showed me the way.

For those who watch the coverage of the Masters Golf Tournament, that tradition rings true because you know every hole in your minds eye, you know where the Azalia’s are planted and where the Eisenhower tree, used to be. You know the pin placements on Sunday, you know that Jim Nance will professionally introduce Augusta National’s President Billy Payne to present the Green Jacket to the tournament winner, but you also know who Hootie Johnston was and even though you have likely never been to Augusta and maybe never will, you know that Amen corner is three holes in golf, that you would give anything to play just once. I was asked on Thursday last week who I thought would win the Masters - I picked Lee Westwood figuring he was due, Jason Day because he is capable and stayed loyal to Canadian Graham Delaet who has made 1.7m this year already. I was wrong on all three accounts. Did anyone see Bubba winning again and so soon after his miracle shot in 2012. I think not, but he too has been very good to start this year and he is the one guy on tour that everyone relates too. He makes shots that we all make, doesn’t seem to worry about any form at all and best of all, Bubba Watson try’s

Let’s give a historical landmark a function Nick Wolochatiuk Dances with Words NUTHILLTOO@GMAIL.COM

If you build it, they will come. However, if you tear it down, they won’t come. Cornwall has torn down many of its former landmarks, such as the Capitol Theatre, the massive Courtaulds mill (which was once proposed to become a residential complex), the old Post Office (which stood at the northwest corner of Pitt and Second) and filled in the east end of the Cornwall Canal (between Brookdale and Marlborough). The demolition of the Domtar stacks is on hold. Can you imagine Paris without the Eiffel Tower? It was built for the World’s Fair of 1889, intended as a temporary fixture. Even then, some found it to be an offensive blight on the city’s skyline. Fortunately, it has survived. The towering bridge that connects the City of Cornwall to Akwesasne’s Cornwall Island

no longer functions as a traffic artery. It never holidays being celebrated, like the CN Tower. into anonymous concrete dust and earn a bit Of course, there’s the other option: grind it of money from its scrap metal value. did have the 730-foot ocean-going vessels pass under it. We hear the cries to have it torn down. I would have the central truss arch and its massive concrete piers saved. Function? It’s the city’s landmark. If an elevator were built to bring sightseers to its deck, they could gaze upon the city, the remains of the pre-Seaway Cornwall Canal, the remaining piers of the NYC, the North Channel of the St. Lawrence River, Cornwall Island and the distant Adirondacks. On the deck, informative plaques would be arrayed along the protective guardrails. Entertaining videos that depict area history, current attractions and coming events could be available at the touch of a button. What a stupendous vantage point for viewing Canada Day fireworks, the Lift-Off hot air balloons, sunrises and sunsets. To accent this jewel of a landmark, it would EYE-SORE OR EYE-CANDY? – The central span of the former Cornwall Seaway Bridge is still be bathed in changing spotlights of changing standing. So is the Eiffel Tower. Will both remain more than a century from now? (Photo by colours, varying with the seasons and the Nick Wolochatiuk)

What is all this IT fear about? Michael Galvin

use a complicated password that includes (at a minimum) a mix of upper and lower case letters, special characters (i.e. $ @ % &, etc), and should not contain a regular dictionary word. Phishing Emails: An example may be an email that appears to be from a known website that claims your username and password have been compromised and you need to click through to a site that will ask for login credentials and give you the opportunity to change your password. In reality the website will be a shell that is just collecting these log-in credentials for the scammers. Never click through a link in an email, regardless of how “real” it looks. Pop-Up Ads / Ransomware:

When surfing the Internet a pop-up window may appear, again looking like it comes from Windows, or an Anti-Virus company or the like. It will tell you again, that there is a problem with your computer and that you need to “Click here” to either fix it. Clicking through this link will usually install software on your computer that will then appear to find all sorts of errors and vulnerabilities then prompt you to pay with a credit card to fix them. Telephone Scams: The most dangerous form of attack has now become telephone calls made directly to your home or business from people claiming to be from the Microsoft Security Centre, an AntiVirus company, or a police agency such as the RCMP or CSIS. 5540806

What a crazy week in the IT world! The Heartbleed vulnerability made headlines the world over and prompted extreme reactions, including the Canada Revenue Agency to suspend its eFile website over concerns that their servers may be compromised. The Heartbleed is one of the most concerning security flaws to come to light in recent memory, largely due to the fact that the average user was helpless because the vulnerability was at “the other end” on the servers of the websites being used. Nothing that an end user could do from their own end would have protected their secure data.

We have discussed at length the ways that an end user can protect their sensitive data. These include using complex passwords, keeping your computer free of Malware and Spyware, and ensuring that they are only providing personal information to known websites that were secure. Unfortunately, the majority of these servers used a software known as OpenSSL and it is within that program that the Heart Bleed vulnerability exists. Fortunately, this issue has come to light and affected servers are being patched with new versions of the OpenSSL software, but there is still a concern that no one really knows what data (if any) has been stolen due to Heart Bleed, or from whom. We are still recommending that all users change their passwords for any secure sites that they frequent, and remember to always

When a commercial comes on, he leaps over the coffee table in a single bound and heads for the kitchen. Faster than a speeding bullet, he stocks up on beverage, chips and dip. With a voice more powerful than a locomotive, he demands a parent’s privilege to use the bathroom. And at the last, he takes his rightful place on the sofa before the game resumes. He calls this the Couch-Potato Triathlon! Love your bagels Tim Hortons !

This is very nice and will be a huge benefit to Cooper Marsh and all the visitors. Now I would hope that Guy would come back to Cornwall and cut a ribbon for the opening of the cabane and help the protesters get rid of these unsightly storage tanks on our waterfront.

An art connoisseur passed a little grocery in New York when he noticed a kitten on the front step lapping up some milk in a bowl. The cat was mangy with one ear half chewed off and clumps of fur missing. What really caught the collectors eye was the bowl the kitten was drinking from. It was a rare antique worth thousands. He walks in the store and offers $20.00 for the cat. “He’s not for sale.” Says the store owner. “That’s ridiculous!” Says the collector. “He is one of the ugliest cats I’ve seen. He must be for sale. I’ll give you $100.00 for him.” The store owner thought for a second and said “It’s a deal.” The connoisseur hands the store owner the money, which he quickly pockets, and as he starts out the store asks “For that price I’m sure you won’t mind sending that old bowl with him. He seems so happy drinking from it.” The store owner says “ No way. That’s my lucky bowl. From that bowl I’ve sold 26 cats this week!”

Love Love Food moves to new digs Adam Brazeau adam.brazeau@tc.tc

CORNWALL, Ontario – A Cornwall gourmet food shop with a loyal following is moving to a new location in the city’s downtown core. Tony Lacroix’s Love Love Food will re-open in early May at 15 1/2 Second Street East, the home of Dish Cafe and Food Store until April 17. “It’s very exciting,” said Lacroix. “When I talk about it, it’s very emotional. This is a big step.” The cafe style eatery sits roughly a dozen. The open concept of the kitchen allows diners to discuss recipes and savor aromas with the cook as their order is being prepared. Minus a few cosmetic changes, the transition for Love Love Food will be relatively seamless. “Right now, I’m still located downtown, but

I’ve been looking for six months for a larger place where I could do more things –but I needed a space that worked in an area with high traffic,” he said. Lacroix started his business with a small selection of highly-addictive gourmet desserts, homemade jams, and coffee blends at local markets and trade shows. A year and a half ago, Lacroix opened a small store (located at 10 4th Street East) adjacent to his home, where his partner Rony Major operates Shorteez Urban Hair Shop. But as the appetite for Love Love Food grew, so did the need for space. Lacroix’s recipe for success is giving his away. He posts all his recipes on his website and when his patrons make food follies at home, he’s quick to offer sound advice. “I’ve been slowly tweaking what I do by listening to the suggestions of my customers and building a following,” said Lacroix. “I’m

very passionate about food, and I love sharing that passion.” The local food guru will be expanding the hours of Love Love Food to Monday to Friday 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. (Thursdays till 7 p.m.) and Saturdays 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. The cafe style shop will offer different coffees, teas, gourmet foods, soups, dessert selections (including custom cakes), and full catering services. Lacroix will still run Love Love Food out of its original location until the end of April. (Check lovelovefood.com for updates in real time.) Keitha Fisher, owner of Dish Cafe, will continue to teach cooking classes and run a catering service. (For updates follow her Twitter @DishFoodShop). Fisher was unable to provide any details about her upcoming project. Both her and Lacroix were quick to clarify that in no way is the relocation a partnership.
