CORNWALL, Ontario – Cornwall City Council voted in favour of a pay increase for councillors. Council passed the motion that would give them a pay increase of $1,700 this year and $1,300 in 2020. These increases, along with the annual cost of living adjustment of two per cent that councillors receive annually will bring their salary to $22,000 by 2022, the end of term for the current council.

The first number of $1,700 makes up for the cancellation of the federal tax exemption program for municipal elected officials that was ended in 2018. A report from City administration shows that a Cornwall City Council have the tenth lowest pay as compared to 12 other municipalities. On the other hand, Cornwall has the fourth largest municipality out of those comparator cities and the second largest budget. See page 3 for rest of story.


History on display at 208th Williamstown Fair John MacGillis

“This year we’re happy to have the return of the midway, more cattle in the 4-H, and more kids activities going on all weekend,” said Roy Perkins, a Director of the Williamstown Fair. “We like to keep to the traditions of the fair, but it is always important to be growing and improving to keep people coming back.” Activities throughout the weekend include performances from local musicians, tug-of-war, horse shows, and a variety of other events. A free corn roast will also be taking place on Saturday evening. The history of the fair will also be a focal point of the weekend, as Bev Runions, the fair’s former Secretary Treasurer, launches her book. “It has taken me a while to compile all of this information and what has happened at the fair throughout the years, but now I’m really excited to share what I have been working on with everyone,” said Runions. One of the fair’s biggest highlights is how it brings neighbours together, according to Perkins. “Lots of people much rather giving up their time and pulling together at a volunteer level instead of a meeting level,” said Perkins. “If you need something done in Williamstown, you’ll have a long line of people ready to help.”


CRTF seize 12 bags of tobacco, dozens of cigarettes


Council votes to increase pay CORNWALL, Ontario – Cornwall City Council voted in favour of a pay increase for councillors. Council passed the motion that would give them a pay increase of $1,700 this year and $1,300 in 2020. These increases, along with the annual cost of living adjustment of two per cent that councillors receive annually will bring their salary to $22,000 by 2022, the end of term for the current council. The first number of $1,700 makes up for the cancellation of the federal tax exemption program for municipal elected officials that was ended in 2018. A report from City administration shows that a Cornwall City Council have the tenth lowest pay as compared to 12 other municipalities. On the other hand, Cornwall has the fourth largest municipality out of those comparator cities and the second largest budget. Currently, a Cornwall City Councillor makes $16,249.22. One comparator city was Belleville, where a councillor makes $34,000 a year, a councillor in South Glengarry makes $18,495.49. Councillor Elaine MacDonald who put forward the motion said that her aim was to bring Cornwall Council compensation up to the provincial average. “We are not figure heads, we are real workers,” she said. “To work as much as we do and

to be paid what we are devalues the position. Right now, the only people who can really work for the wages we get, are some really brave younger people, but mostly retirees on pensions.” The administration report cited the low pay and high number of hours expected from councillors as a possible detriment to people thinking of running for office. “If you want a young person to run and replace this geezer, you better pay them for the work that we do,” said Councillor Syd Gardiner. Councillor Carilyne Hebért outlined some of the work expected of a City Councillor. “We’re expected to be experts on everything that comes across this table and we are gladly, expected to be available 24/7,” she said. “We are held to a pretty high standard by our constituents, as we should be, often for less than minimum wage.” “None of us jumped into this because of the wage, we do this because we love what we do,” she went onto say. “This is really structured for retired folks, folks with time on their hands.” Councillor Maurice Dupelle was one councillor who voted against the increase. Councillor Todd Bennett, who also voted against the increase, said he did not oppose an increase to council pay, but felt that they should make the decision for future councils and not for themselves. “I think it is very very important that we

Nick Seebruch

don’t compare this to my own job that I work 40 hours a week at,” he said. “I think as an individual if the compensation is not fair that I would decide not to run again for council.” Mayor Bernadette Clement, who’s salary was not up for debate pointed out how in the month of June alone, councillors attended two council meetings, committee meetings, a team building meeting, a strategic planning meeting and special meetings. “That’s just June. You all earned your pay, or quite frankly underpay for the work you put in,” she said. Clement did say that she wanted to review the number of councillors that Cornwall has, stating her belief that there were too many. Ultimately, councillors Claude McIntosh, Elaine MacDonald, Syd Gardiner, Dean Hollingsworth, Carilyne Hebért, Glenn Grant, Eric Bergeron and Mayor Bernadette Clement all voted in favour of the pay increase with councillors Maurice Dupelle, and Todd Bennett voting against. Councillor Justin Towndale abstained from the vote.

CORNWALL, Ontario – The Cornwall Regional Task Force (CRTF) have announced that they seized a large quantity of tobacco during a border integrity operation they conducted along the St. Lawrence River in Cornwall. The CRTF states that it’s officers spotted individuals loading packages into a 2004 Pontiac Montana parked at the edge of the river. “The police intercepted the van as it was departing the area and had to utilise the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) canine unit to locate 2 of the suspects; one of which had jumped into the river canal to escape custody,” reads the statement from the CRTF. “Thank you to the Cornwall Fire Department for their assistance in performing the rescue of one suspect who received medical attention for minor injuries.” The CRTF arrested 18-year-old Zachary Plumadore and 20-year-old Jordan Johnson for violations of the Excise Act for possession of unstamped tobacco. They are scheduled to appear in court on Oct. 22. Police seized 12 bags of unstamped fine cut tobacco weighing 209.70kg, 60 cartons of cigars 36 bags of cigarettes as well as the van. The CRTF is a joint forces partnership that includes the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, Ontario Provincial Police, Canada Border Services Agency, and the Ontario Ministry of Finance. - Seaway News - Wednesday, August 14, 2019 - 3

CORNWALL, Ontario – The Cornwall Aeromodellers took to the sky near Cornwall Centre Rd. for their Fun Fly event, to encourage people to come out and see for themselves the fun that flying model airplanes can bring. “Today wasn’t the greatest day to have this event, but usually people will come from all over to fly with us and enjoy an afternoon here,” said Jeff Mitchell, President of the Cornwall Aeromodellers, regarding the windy conditions which were not ideal for flying in. The afternoon had music, model planes flying and spectators. Cornwall Aeromodellers

Cornwall Aeromodellers have around 45 members and fly their model planes four seasons a year, which involves equal parts building and flying their models, according to Mitchell. “We spend a lot of time working on our models and practicing flying them, and we are always interested in people joining us and learning to fly,” said Mitchell.

City recommends all cats be spayed or neutered, kept indoors Nick Seebruch

CORNWALL, Ontario – At their meeting on Monday, Aug. 12, Council received a report from City of Cornwall administration that recommended that all cats be spayed or neutered (desexed) and that all owned cats be kept indoors. The recommendations made to Council in the report will form the basis of a by-law that will be presented to Council later in the year. The main recommendations focus around ensuring that all owned cats are de-sexed within five years and that feral, or community cats are trapped, de-sexed and released. “What’s key is having the cats de-sexed,” said Chris Rogers, the City’s top by-law official. “Whether it is feral cats or community cats or household cats because that is the ultimate population control measure.” To help facilitate and encourage that the bylaw is enforced, administration recommends that the City sets aside $40,000 annually to subsidize the de-sexing of owned and community cats. Of that budget, $15,000 will be dedicated to subsidize the de-sexing of owned cats and will be made available to cat owners based on an income test. Under these recommendations, all owned cats must be de-sexed within five years. The City will also dedicate a little over $10,000 to encourage residents to bring in unowned cats in their community to be de-sexed. Community organizations that are dedicated to the welfare of animals and rescue of cats will be given vouchers to help them with the cost of de-sexing cats that come into their care. There will be 65 vouchers for which the City will set aside nearly $10,000. Finally, roughly $5,000 will be given to the OSPCA to help with the cost of bringing in their mobile cat clinic to Cornwall.

Classiqu’ Arts fresh take on classic music coming to Cornwall Nick Seebruch

In October 2018, the OSPCA cat clinic came to Cornwall after over 400 requests were made to the OSPCA, on that single day, the OSPCA performed 40 de-sexing procedures. The other main component of administrations recommendations is the requirement that cats be kept indoors. Rogers said that 30 per cent of the cats that are brought in to the OSPCA are community cats, but that the rest are owned. He said that he felt that often, owned cats were let out, and would procreate. “It is important to stem that supply, by requiring all cats to be left in doors,” he said. Council had a few questions about the implementation of a future by-law, but overall seemed satisfied with the report. “Its not a purrfect by-law, but its a start,” said Councillor Claude McIntosh (the pun was intended). Members of the public packed the council room to hear the details of the report. Mary Jane Proulx, a long time advocate for a trap, neuter and release focused by-law also seemed satisfied with the report. “It is a start,” she said.”We have to start somewhere and over the years we will iron out the problems.”

CORNWALL, Ontario – The Classiqu’ Arts group are preparing for another set of summer performances, and this time, they will be bringing their show to Cornwall. In 2018, Classiqu’ Arts performed two classic music concerts in the ruins of St. Raphael’s Church in South Glengarry. This year, they will still be holding one show in the ruins on the afternoon of Sunday, Aug. 18, but will also be holding a show the day before at the Nativity co-Cathedral church on Montreal Rd. in Cornwall. This year’s concert will have a dynamic and blended feel according to vocalist Danielle Vaillancourt. “This year, we’ve been seeing a blur in the borderlines of music,” she said. “So our theme this year is: Without Borders.”

Artists include the group Kleztory, a klezmer music group from Montreal. Klezmer is from the Jewish musical tradition and Vaillancourt describes it as having a Bohemian sound. Other artists include Barabara Croall, an indigenous musician from the Odawa First Nation who play’s the pipigwan, an Anishinaabe cedar flute. Veronika Cherniak and Thérèse Motard of Cornwall, and Olivia Haramis of South Glengarry will be playing the violin, cello and singing soprano respectively. The show on Saturday, Aug. 17 at Nativity co-Cathedral church will begin with a pre-concert at 6:30 p.m. with the show itself starting at 8 p.m. On Sunday, doors at St. Raphael’s Ruins will open at 1 p.m. with the show beginning at 2 p.m. The main show has a run time of approximately 75 minutes. For more information, or to buy tickets, please see the Classiqu’ Arts website.

Dance the Day away in support of SASS SHAWNA O’NEILL

CORNWALL, Ontario – For the first time ever, Sexual Assault Support Services (SASS) for women of SDG&A is hoping to entice locals to Riverdale Park on Saturday, Aug. 24 where they can watch and learn different styles of dance and movement. The free, public event will feature professional dancers of Ottawa and Cornwall from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., with some performing a routine and others teaching a brief class. Donations are welcome during the event as funds continue to benefit various SASS initiatives, like bi-monthly support groups where refreshments are provided and weekly healing art group sessions where supplies are needed. “Typically, at this time of year, we have several events going on,” said Organizer Amanda Marini-Rohde, referring to activities and fundraisers like SASS’s Chalk Walk, held on Thursday, Aug. 15. Marini-Rohde, who has a passion for dance and will be performing during the event, feels that the art form is a unique way in which

humans can communicate and understand each other. “I find dance itself is a way of communicating without speaking, and all too often it is sexualized (in media),” said Marini-Rohde. “It’s important not to sexualize (dance)…it’s an empowering act in itself, left for interpretation, and it’s a beautiful thing for people to come together and dance together, and be empowered through moving their bodies.” Various styles of dance will be showcased during the event, including traditional styles, folk and variations of contemporary, all drawing from different influences around the world. Apart from Marini-Rohde, notable dancers will include the following: Mizuki Hoshino, a dance artist from Tokyo, Japan who attended The School of Contemporary Dance Program from 2002-2004. She has appeared in and choreographed pieces in the Guelph Contemporary Dance Festival, among many productions. Mary Catherine Jack, an independant dance artist, is passionate about movement as a pilates and dance instructor, hoping for her students and clients to achieve wellness that will

Great River Network requests smoke-free waterfront cigarette butts in the stomachs of fish, according to the letter. Similar concerns are held by Councillor Elaine MacDonald, who described cigarette filters as “impossible to recycle”, citing the difficulties in managing their waste. “I think this issue is really worth raising even if it doesn’t pass, because it is a crucial step in educating the public on how bad these things really are for the environment,”

JOHN MACGILLIS CORNWALL, ON – A request to make the Waterfront Trail a smoke-free zone from Power Dam Dr. to Gray’s Creek, was sent to Cornwall City Council by the Great River Network. The path that is home to walkers, cyclists, and runners is currently littered with discarded cigarette butts and requires intervention to keep the watershed clean, according to the Great River Network’s letter to Cornwall City Council. “Network members are very concerned that almost 30% of Cornwall’s population smokes,” said Patricia O’Hara, the Great River Network’s Chair in their letter. “This results in an excessive amount of cigarette butt waste.” One of the groups concerns with cigarette butts is the damage that it causes to fish population with local fisherman finding

said MacDonald. “Even having more receptacles to discard butts would likely greatly reduce the number of butts.” Great River Network has requested in past years to make Lamoureux Park smoke-free as well, according to their letter. The letter was sent in advance of the council meeting on Monday, Aug. 12.

South Glengarry Council hears 5G concerns LANCASTER, Ontario – The Township of South Glengarry Council heard concerns around implementing 5G wireless internet in municipality in a presentation from Kathleen Szirtes at their meeting on Tuesday, Aug. 6. A social worker working in counselling offices in Ottawa and Cornwall, Szirtes hopes to open a practice in Lancaster, but is concerned about plans to improve rural internet through the implementation of 5G networks and wireless internet towers.

“We understand that exposure of cell technology increases the risk of childhood cancer and cancer in adults,” stated Szirtes at the meeting.

The beach and a bus Nick Seebruch

A couple of weeks ago, Cornwall’s Planning Advisory Committee (PAC) reviewed the final draft of the new Waterfront Master Plan. The top priority item for Cornwall’s waterfront is more recreational beach areas. You know where there are some great public beaches? In South Stormont and in South Glengarry. I believe at the PAC meeting it was lay member Ron Syminton who suggested that Cornwall Transit should organize a bus over the summer to go to one of the beaches in South Stormont. I think this is a great idea and is a great revenue opportunity for the municipality that enacts it first. Cornwall already has its own buses and I think that this opportunity is one for Cornwall to lose. There is no reason that I can think of why either South Glengarry, South Stormont or the United Counties of SD&G Tourism department could organize their own buses to pick up residents in Cornwall and bring them to one of their beaches. Residents of Cornwall already frequent the beaches in our neighbouring municipalities, which is evidence of the great economic draw they are for South Glengarry and Stormont. Those beaches will become an even greater economic driver if there are literally bus loads of people going to them over the summer. How I think this could work, is Cornwall could run a route to one of the beaches in South Stormont or South Glengarry based on demand. Maybe the bus would start out only being once a week, then grow with demand; or maybe start on Saturday or Sunday at first. Tickets could be sold on a per-ride basis, or maybe a season pass? I think the fares would likely need to be higher than the standard

Cornwall Transit fare, if not because of the demand, then simply because it would be a longer ride than the normal bus route. Now another question that would need to be addressed, is which beach? South Glengarry has two great beaches in Charlottenburgh Park and Glengarry Park. South Stormont has Milles Roches Beach, Woodland Beach, Farran Park Beach and Lakeview Park Beach. Given the economic potential of having beach goers from Cornwall bused into their municipality, I think that South Glengarry and South Stormont should have the chance to bid on being the beneficiary of the potential bus route. Whichever municipality gets the chance to host a summer beach bus route will have to consider options on how to increase profitability of their beach. They could have pop-up vendors to cater to the beach goers, paddle boat rides, wakeboard rentals and more. Ultimately, I think the City of Cornwall should be the ones who initiate this bus-tobeach connection. Like I said, the Townships or the United Counties of SD&G could do this on their own and cut the City of Cornwall out. I think that having a bus commute to a local beach in a neighbouring municipality could be a great way to meet the clear demand for more beach access in Cornwall. If Cornwall does choose to develop a beach of it’s own along the city’s waterfront, this might be a good carry over measure to give Cornwall residents access to a beach while one is developed in their own town. This would also show City administration if there is adequate support for a beach in Cornwall. What do you think readers, of creating a summer bus routes to nearby beaches?

Foundation excavation work on Cornwall Jail in August, 1938 dug up a dark side of the old gaol’s past. While digging for the new kitchen foundation, workers, all prisoners, discovered a buried dungeon that had been filled in with broken stone and rubbish then cemented over. Unearthed were three underground cells, six by 10 feet, with neither doors nor windows. Nobody alive at the time could recall their existence. Officials believed the underground cells were part of the jail when it opened in 1833 and were used to punish prisoners who broke the rules. Each offending prisoner was lowered into the dark, damp cell through a trap door on the main floor. There was no record of how long a prisoner would remain in the coffin-like cell. It not only lacked any source of light but lacked proper ventilation. Even at a time when the lash was common punishment - records showed that a man convicted of petty larceny received 39 strokes of the lash in a public whipping banishment to the underground cells was cruel and unusual punishment. ******** In 1938, in a converted hen house at the rear of this home at 716 Pitt St., Dominic Carra carried on with a craft taught to him by his father who learned the trade from his father in Italy. It was the no-room-for-error art of making fire works, a skill at the time carried out by only two other manufacturers in the country. He had been at it for 27 years, first partnering with Dominic Ruffo for 19 years

when he first came to Cornwall from Italy. The chemicals and gun powder needed - 100 concoctions in all and some of them highly explosive - in the making of his fireworks were stored in the converted hen house. It is hard to imagine that being allowed in this day and age. But in 1938 the “safety” feature was a “Danger Keep Out” signs affixed to the building. His home-made designs included everything from skyrockets to pinwheels in all colours, many of them custom-made for customers. When it came to purchasing his fireworks, it was a package deal. The master pyrotechnician had to set off the fireworks. ALSO IN AUGUST 1938 - With the arena debt of $10,000 paid off in just three years, Mille Roches was throwing a mortgage-burning party with a dance in the arena. Sparky Dukelow and his nine-piece band supplied the music. ... Thieves used hacksaws to remove the hinges on the safe in the Gamble-Robinson office on Water Street and make off with $385 (the same purchasing power as $6,716 today). A few months earlier thieves used nitroglycerin to blow open the safe at the Imperial Oil office. ... The Kiwanis Club was looking at the possibility of enlarging the wading pool at Central Park. The pool was built by the club in 1929. ... Lancaster native Samuel William Jacobs the first Jewish member of the House of Commons died at age 67. He was elected in 1919 and re-elected five times, all in the riding of Cartier. He was a prominent Quebec lawyer. ... A letter to the editor in the StandardFreeholder complained that the public library was getting the short end of the stick when it came to funding by city hall. The letter said the library was antiquated, understaffed and cramped for room. It was called the “weak link” in the education system. The author said the library deserved

Runners follow Raisin River at footrace John MacGillis WILLIAMSTOWN, Ontario – Shoelaces were tied tightly as runners took off and toured around the Raisin River at the 41st annual Great Raisin River Footrace on Sunday, Aug. 11. Runners from as young as six-years-old to above the age of 80 competed in both 5 and 11 km races along the south side of the Raisin River, leaving from Sir John Johnson Manor House. “We had a chilly morning setting up, but it turned into a beautiful day for a great run,” said Jane McLaren, Executive Director of Beyond 21. This year the race was hosted by Beyond 21 for the first time, with proceeds going to their organization. “The race has a really longstanding tradition

that we tried our best to maintain and the running community came out again this year, which was really great to see,” said McLaren. Beyond 21 had been involved with the race in previous years but was asked to become the race’s directors, according to McLaren. Isaac Fraser was the fastest competitor in the 5 km race with a race time of 16 minutes and 37 seconds. Jacob Cameron won the 11 km race with a race time of 34 minutes and 22 seconds, according to the race results. Medals were also awarded to winners of each category, based on age and gender. Todd Piquette and Stephanie Doyon were two of the racers leaving the footrace with medals (John MacGillis/Seaway News).

Reel, experiential fun at Fishing for Special Needs John MacGillis CORNWALL, Ontario – Experienced anglers partnered up with individuals with special needs for a day of boating and fishing along the St. Lawrence River on Sunday, Aug. 11, enjoying a one-on-one adventure on the water. Fishing for Special Needs saw an attendances of about 25 community members

alongside several volunteers, according to Art Levert, Director of the Include Program. Volunteers and participants fished from boats and the water’s edge to provide a safe space to try out fishing. “Being one-on-one, for both safety and creating a quality experience, is the most important (aspect) to our program,” said Levert. Providing people with special needs an

opportunity to try different activities that focus on engagement and experiential learning has been one of the Include Program’s Goals, according to Levert. “Fishing for Special Needs began after I took one of my more challenging clients out fishing and I figured, if I could go out fishing with him for a couple hours, we can grand scale this,” said Levert.

Levert said that the number of generous volunteers is what truly makes the event a reel success every year, keeping everything afloat. “We had a lot of folks have a lot of success catching some fish today, and it really couldn’t happen without so many people giving up their time, their boats and their gas, to give our friends this opportunity,” said Levert gratefully.

Dragons racing on the canal at Cornwall Waterfest CORNWALL, Ontario – Rowers filed in to dragon boats and launched into the Cornwall Canal on Saturday, Aug. 10 to experience racing at the 10th Cornwall Waterfest Dragon Boat Festival. With 19 teams, races featured competitors of a variety of different skill levels throughout the day according to Lea Emard, the event’s Chairperson. “Every year we have so many people with different experience levels, it makes for an interesting competition,” said Emard. Of the 19 teams, 13 of them were local while 6 had come from Ottawa. This year also has 4 entries in the women’s division, ultimately

showing growth in that division in the festival. “We have also had a lot of support from teams from Ottawa and the festival that they run up there has been great to us,” said Emard. Teams also raised money to benefit Hospice Cornwall, according to Sandy Collette. Around $3,000 was raised last year from the festival. “This coming year we’re looking at purchasing a van and money raised from this would certainly help towards that”, said Collette. A van would be used to transport palliative patients in situations transportation is otherwise unavailable according to Collette.

Oil is the lifeblood of your car. It keeps hardworking engine parts running clean, smooth and cool. Most owner’s manuals suggest that you change your oil and oil filter every 12,070 kilometers. Oil change specialists suggest every 3,000 miles (4,828 kilometers) or three months. The fact is, most of us do a lot of heavy driving during the summer when an engine is more likely to overheat. So at least check your oil before you head out on that road trip with the family. To check your oil, let your car run for a few minutes, then park it on a level surface and shut off the engine. Open the hood and locate the oil dipstick. You’re looking for two things here: the level of oil and how the oil looks. If you’re low on oil, you can either add another quart or simply change the oil completely. The oil should look brownish yellow and clean on the stick. If the oil is a dark color or there’s a lot of dirt and grime in it, then you definitely need an oil change and oil filter replacement. Wait, didn’t you do a lot of these things when you got your car ready for colder weather? As a matter of fact, yes. RECYCLE THAT OIL! If you change your own oil and oil filter, don’t just


throw the old oil and used filter in the garbage or dump the oil down the sewer drain. It can pollute local streams or end up in the groundwater. Place the oil in a recyclable plastic container like an empty two-liter soda bottle. Place the oil filter over a plastic pan or tray and let it drain for 12 hours. Add that oil to the two-liter bottle, put the used filter in a plastic bag and take everything to your nearest designated recycling center. Many oil change places and auto parts stores accept used oil and filters.

Kickstands up for 2nd annual Hospice fundraiser Shawna O’Neill

CORNWALL, Ontario – The Seaway Valley riders have opened their wallets and hearts once again, hosting their 2nd annual motorcycle ride in support of Hospice Cornwall on Saturday, Aug. 10. Riders took off from St. Lawrence Blvd Pub around 10:30 a.m. According to Mike Dagenais, a member of the Seaway Valley Riders, last year’s inaugural event saw just shy of 100 riders. This year, Dagenais was hoping to see even more on the road. “We got so many good responses...,” said Dagenais. Upon departure around 10:30 a.m., riders drove towards Long Sault, making their way slowly through the scenic Long Sault Parkway. They then carried on through Ingleside and Osnabruck Centre, all the way to the St. Albert Cheese Factory. On their way back to St. Lawrence Blvd Pub for a donated luncheon and live entertainment around 2:30 p.m., riders stopped at O’Neill’s Pub in Long Sault.

Last year the group raised $12,900 for Hospice Cornwall. Dagenais could not believe the success of the fundraiser in its first year and is excited to continue the tradition, as well as continuing to out-do previous fundraising accomplishments. “This year we started a little early…and we’ve raised $10,000 already,” said Dagenais. “I just get so excited when the community comes through with donations ahead of time, I just can’t believe it.” This year, live auction items were also up for grabs, including a fire pit, quilt, big screen t.v., tablet and more. “It was a no brainier to pick (Hospice Cornwall) again,” said Dagenais when asked why Riders selected the organization again. “We could have picked any charity, but it being Hospice, we have friends and family who go through for the best care ever for the final days of their life. It’s a good one to pick and we’re going to stick with it.” Riders were asked to donate $20 to participate. Mike Dagenais and Kat Alderson of Seaway Valley Riders in 2018. “We’re having some fun while raising T:10” Shawna O’Neill/Seaway News photo. money,” said Dagenais.

NSFS Fill the Boot with funds for muscular dystrophy Shawna O’Neill

NORTH STORMONT, Ontario – North Stormont Fires Services (NSFS) were out and ‘aboot’ in the municipality on Saturday, Aug. 10, encouraging locals and anyone passing through to support their annual fundraiser, Fill the Boot for Muscular Dystrophy Canada. “Once a year, we come out and do some fundraising for muscular dystrophy,” explained NSFS Firefighter Cory Jacques. “We station ourselves in Moose Creek and some of us come here (to Monkland).” According to Jacques, last year’s fundraiser saw a total of about $2,000 in donations. Many supporters generously dropped coins and cash into the firefighter boots. NSFS stickers were given to everyone who made a donation.

Having worked with the department for four years now, Jacques said that he has participated in the fundraiser every year since, but he believes the unit has been fundraising for the particular cause for numerous years, dating back to 1954. According to Jacques, the department participates and hosts a series of fundraisers for different organizations throughout the year. “People are very generous around here,” said Jacques gratefully. “It’s mostly for the children… it’s always good to help them out.” Statistics suggest that over 50,000 Canadians live with over 150 types of muscular dystrophy. Muscular dystrophy, classified as neuromuscular disorders, are a group of diseases that weaken the body’s muscles and breakdown skeletal muscles over time. The causes, symptoms, age of onset and severity of the disease depend on each individual and their exact diagnosis.

The range of local musical talents that will be at the show include Cornwall’s gift to folk pop Grace Willison and her father Eric. The headlining act of the event will be Morrisburg’s own Plain Folk. Jan of Harmony Concerts said that her philosophy for music was Excellence, Innovation and Diversity. Jan credits that philosophy for the growing audiences that the concerts have been attracting. “Our concerts are very diverse and eclectic,” Jan said. “I find we are gaining audience members at every show because it is different.” When Jan first visited the vineyard, owners Norene and Marc’s small dog, Jeanie , fell in love with her, and Jan fell in love with the vineyard, the owners, and the welcoming scenery. StoneCropAcres opened in 2017. A year later, they received a grant from SD&G Tourism to hold open mic concerts on their property. The vineyard has a natural auditorium

grown right on the property made of several 40-year-old fir trees, in the centre of which is a tent covered stage. Beyond the stage is a patio, plenty of outdoor seating areas right back to the grape vines. “The performers say this is one of the nicest places they’ve ever played,” said Norene. Jan and Harmony Concerts is promoting emerging talent along with bringing headlining talent such as Jimmy Rankin in Ottawa and at Susan Aglukark at Cornwall’s Aultsville Theatre. “For me, it’s a labour of love,” Jan said. “I wanted to create and promote a platform where local artists can come and play.” Many local performers are hired to open for professional artist including Rankin, Aglukark and more. StoneCropAcres is located at 5232 Smiths Rd. in South Dundas. For more information on Harmony Concerts and the Seaway Valley Folk Festival, visit www.

Le tournoi de golf de la CSN recueille la somme de 4,000 $ pour le Programme d’éducation sur le sirop d’érable

MORRISBURG, Ontario - Près de 100 golfeurs et commanditaires locaux ont aidé la Conservation de la Nation Sud (CNS) à amasser 4,000 $ pour l’éducation environnementale des jeunes lors du Tournoi de golf annuel des Amis de la CNS, le 8 août, au terrain de golf Upper Canada à Morrisburg. « Un grand merci à tous les participants, commanditaires ou donateurs qui ont fait un don au tournoi, ce qui en fait l’un de nos

tournois les plus réussis à ce jour », a déclaré John Mesman, Chef d’équipe du service des communications de la CNS. Les joueurs ont eu droit à une variété de jeux sur place, et plusieurs sont repartis avec des prix de présence offerts par des entreprises de la région, dont la Fromagerie St -Albert, le théâtre Upper Canada Playhouse, la Brasserie Beau’s et la quincaillerie Home Hardware de Crysler. « C’est inspirant de voir les gens s’amuser pour soutenir une bonne cause », a poursuivi M. Mesman. « C’est l’une de nos activités de

collecte de fonds préférées et elle rassemble les gens à l’extérieur, où ils peuvent profiter de leur environnement local. » Cette année, la CNS a relancé son programme phare d’éducation sur le sirop d’érable pour sa 18e saison, après une année de transition. Plus de 500 élèves de neuf écoles locales ont été accueillis dans la Forêt Oschmann à Ormond, le nouvel emplacement du programme. Les fonds amassés lors du tournoi de golf serviront à aménager des toilettes permanentes et un centre d’interprétation éducatif sur

le site. « Nous sommes ravis d’offrir des possibilités d’éducation dans nos forêts communautaires », souligne M. Mesman. « Les fonds amassés lors du tournoi de cette année nous permettront de continuer à offrir notre Programme d’éducation sur le sirop d’érable dans la Forêt Oschmann ce printemps. » POUR DE PLUS AMPLES RENSEIGNEMENTS : Taylor Campbell, Spécialiste des communications,, 1-877-984-2984.

Saisie de véhicule et de tabac de contrebande à Cornwall Communiqué de presse de le GTRC CORNWALL, Ontario - Le 31 juillet 2019, lors d’une opération axée sur l’intégrité des frontières le long des rives du fleuve Saint-Laurent à Cornwall, en Ontario, des agents du Groupe de travail régional de Cornwall (GTRC) ont observé une activité de contrebande où des boîtes et des sacs suspects étaient chargés dans une fourgonnette Pontiac Montana 2004 à partir des rives du fleuve. Les agents de police ont intercepté la fourgonnette alors qu’elle quittait les lieux et ont dû faire appel à l’Unité canine de la Police provinciale de l’Ontario pour localiser deux des suspects, dont un ayant plongé dans le canal fluvial pour éviter de se faire appréhender. Nous remercions le service des incendies de Cornwall pour leur aide lors du sauvetage d’un des suspects, qui a reçu des soins médicaux pour des blessures mineures. Zachary Plumadore (18 ans) et Jordan Johnson (20 ans) de Cornwall, en Ontario, ont été arrêtés et font face à des accusations en vertu de la Loi sur l’accise (2001) pour la possession de tabac non estampillé. Les deux accusés devront comparaître devant la Cour de justice de l’Ontario à Cornwall le 22 octobre

2019. Les policiers ont saisi un total de douze (12) sacs de tabac haché fin non estampillé pesant 209,70 kg, soixante (60) cartouches de petits cigares, trente-six (36) sacs de tabac pour pipe ainsi qu’une fourgonnette Pontiac Montana 2004. Les deux hommes font également face à différents chefs d’accusation en vertu de la Loi concernant l’impôt sur le tabac. Le GTRC est une force policière mixte, composée de la Gendarmerie royale du Canada, de la Police provinciale de l’Ontario, de l’Agence des services frontaliers du Canada et du ministère des Finances de l’Ontario.

Avis de début d’étude Remplacement du passage inférieur du chemin Fraser le long de l’autoroute 401 Étude d’évaluation environnementale de portée générale et de conception préliminaire GWP 4248-15-00

L’ÉTUDE Le ministère des Transports de l’Ontario (MTO) a retenu les services de Dillon Consulting Limited (Dillon) afin d’entreprendre une étude d’évaluation

environnementale de portée générale (ÉE) et de conception préliminaire pour remplacer le passage inférieur du chemin Fraser le long de l’autoroute 401, dans le canton de Glengarry Sud, dans les Comtés unis de Stormont, Dundas et Glengarry. Un certain nombre de solutions de rechange sont envisagées pour remplacer le passage inférieur du chemin Fraser. Ces solutions pourraient impliquer la fermeture temporaire du passage inférieur pendant la construction et la mise en place de voies de déviation. LE PROCESSUS L’Étude d’évaluation environnementale pour le remplacement du passage inférieur du chemin Fraser suit le processus de planification approuvé pour les projets de groupe « B » dans le cadre d’évaluations environnementales de portée générale (ÉE) pour les routes provinciales (2000) établies par le MTO. Un rapport d’étude environnementale sur les transports (REET) sera préparé et déposé pour consultation publique à la fin de l’étude.

Classiqu ’Arts arrive à Cornwall Nick Seebruch

CORNWALL, Ontario - Le groupe Classiqu’ Arts se prépare pour une nouvelle série de représentations estivales et cette fois-ci, il présentera son spectacle à Cornwall. En 2018, Classiqu’ Arts a donné deux concerts de musique classique dans les ruines de l’église St. Raphael en Glengarry Sud. Cette année, ils organiseront un spectacle dans les ruines dans l’après-midi du dimanche 18 août, ainsi qu’un spectacle le 17 août à l’église de la Nativité sur le chemin de Montréal à Cornwall. Le concert de cette année sera dynamique et harmonieux, selon la chanteuse Danielle Vaillancourt. «Cette année, nous avons constaté un flou dans les frontières de la musique», a-t-elle déclaré. «Notre thème cette année est donc: Sans frontières.» Les artistes incluent le groupe Kleztory, un groupe de musique klezmer de Montréal.

Klezmer est issu de la tradition musicale juive et Vaillancourt le décrit comme ayant un son de Bohême. Parmi les autres artistes, on compte Barabara Croall, musicienne autochtone de la Première nation Odawa qui joue le pipigwan, une flûte en cèdre Anishinaabe. Veronika Cherniak et Thérèse Motard de Cornwall et Olivia Haramis de Glengarry Sud joueront respectivement du violon, du violoncelle et une chanteuse soprano. Le spectacle du samedi 17 août à l’église de la cathédrale de la Nativité commencera par un pré-concert à 18h30, avec le spectacle lui-même à partir de 20h. Dimanche, les portes des ruines de Saint-Raphaël ouvriront à 13h, avec le spectacle commençant à 14h. Le spectacle principal dure environ 75 minutes. Pour plus d’informations ou pour acheter des billets, veuillez consulter le site Web de Classiqu ’Arts.

Turn your Day Trip into a Luxury Stay Over Julie Whalley Travel Time

Omega Park in Montebello, Quebec, for those of you who have not yet taken a trip, I can assure you it is worth a visit.

Being there

You can spend the whole day at the park with plenty of opportunities to purchase food, or even take your own and enjoy the natural surroundings from a picnic table as you eat.. Not all the time is spent in your vehicle either with the park strategically placing an opportunity half way round to get out, take a wagon ride and visit the Old Farm with its farmyard animals waiting to greet you, and scheduled shows for your entertainment. Yes the admission price of $31 for adults and $21 for children may seem a lot if you have a family however , you are getting a full day of fun and look out for offers on www. or visit for a $5 coupon. There are also savings if you book your tickets on their website and purchase a family pass.

The park allows you to drive the 15km marked pathways through the natural habitat of some of Canada’s majestic wildlife, observing them as you never have before. A stop at the gift shop before you embark on your tour will give you the chance to get your $3 bag of carrots to feed some of the animals as you slowly drive Staying there through. We decided to stay one night at the Fairmont


eC lebrate

Chateaux Montebello, a few minutes drive from the Park, to be honest I wish I had stayed longer, wow what a great location. The hotel itself is described as the “World’s Largest Log Cabin” and that is exactly the feeling you get while you are there. This hotel is more of a resort offering many activities depending on the season, an outdoor pool with poolside service and scheduled activities , paddle boating, kayaking or paddle boarding on the Ottawa river, mini golf, bicycles, tennis and much more all included in the resort fee of only $28 a room. They also have many winter activities such as curling, ice skating, snow shoeing, cross country skiing and indoor pool and hot tubs, indoor tennis and any cottage vacation would not be the same without a bonfire. The best thing is you can experience all the activities without having to bring any equipment as everything you need to take

part is available for you right there. This hotel has all the luxury of the fairmont brand but still has the worldly charm of a cottage, with the wooden architecture and the rustic but elegant rooms. There are also many eating options to suit all preferences and if you don’t see anything on the menu, the village of Montebello has a range of dining options too. Check out their website for further details and offers On the other hand if you want a truly wildlife adventure Omega Park does offer some accommodation, from a Tipi experience for simple camping lovers to a night in a cabin with a panoramic view of the wolves in your back yard, starting at $100 a night. Take a look at these options to experience the park after dark. www. I will warn you though NO ELECTRONICS allowed if you stay over.

Great job to Michael Seguin, Roy Perkins, Chelsea Hope and the whole team of volunteers who put the Williamstown Fair together every year on another fantastic year.

Rachel’s Kids are helping

Hayley Snyder has been diagnosed with Arthrogryposis, a rare condition that causes contracting of the joints, muscle weakness and pain. “When we heard about the amount of travelling required for this family to attend Hayley’s appointments we wanted to lend a “Helping Hand”” Kim Lauzon, Executive Director. “Through our initiative we were able to provide the family with gift cards to assist in alleviating some of the financial burden during their travels, allowing the family to focus on Hayley’s recovery. We are so happy we could help this deserving family”

What a whole lot of fun Waterfest was. It is always an exciting and unique event that supports a good cause. Congratulations to the Emard family and the team of volunteers who made this year’s event possible.

What’s better than getting ice cream, driving home with the windows down and listening to Crocodile Rock?

Supporting children’s miracles, one blizzard at a time


Owner of Dairy Queen (DQ) Cornwall, Nolan Quinn, anticipated that 2,500 local customers would show their support during the annual DQ Miracle Treat Day across North America on Thursday, Aug. 8. Seeing a five-times jump from the usual 500 blizzards sold on an average summer day, Quinn said that the annual event receives a lot of support from community partners, like Big Brothers Big Sisters of Cornwall and District who were on site, as well as members of the public. “CHEO is very important. It serves a lot of people in Cornwall and SDG. Obviously with children being our future, it’s a very easy ask for customers. Not only are we fundraising today but we do it year-round,” said Quinn. “It’s not hard to find motivation when you see one sick child. It’s pretty easy to want to jump on board and do more.” From left, Owner of Dairy Queen Cornwall Nolan Quinn, Alex Tourangeau representing CHEO, enjoying holding a frozen upside-down blizzard and Evan Burelle, volunteer and DQ staff member.

A man and his wife were having an argument about who should brew the coffee each morning. The wife said, “You should do it because you get up first, and then we don’t have to wait as long to get our coffee. The husband said, “You are in charge of cooking around here and you should do it, because that is your job, and I can just wait for my coffee.” Wife replies, “No, you should do it, and besides, it is in the Bible that the man should do the coffee.” Husband replies, “I can’t believe that, show me.” So she fetched the Bible, and opened the New Testament and showed him at the top of several pages that it indeed says... “HEBREWS”
