Pride & pie on the line at Kinsmen Pizza Party Nick Seebruch

CORNWALL, Ontario – For the twelfth year, the Kinsmen are serving up some delicious competition for a good cause with their annual Pizza Party. Taking place on March 23 at the Best Western on Brookdale Ave., the event will be run a little differently this year. For the first time there will be two categories for the participating pizzerias. Four national pizzerias will be facing off and four local pizzerias will be competing against each other. Each will be vying to win the title of “Best” in their

respective category. The participating pizzerias will be announced in the coming days. Organizer Scott Beck said that the new competition style will help level the playing field and highlight Cornwall’s unique approach to pizza. “The different categories are to recognize the local artisanal flavour of Cornwall Pizza,” he said. “Cornwall’s style of pizza is thick and an abundance of toppings. I’ve never seen a consistent local style of pizza like here in Cornwall. That uniqueness deserves its own category.” It will be down to a panel of local celebrity judges to pick the prime pie in each category. In addition to the pizza, guests will also have a chance to win wonderful prizes from the silent

auction. Prizes include a private box at Bluesfest in Ottawa, box seats for the final game of the Cornwall Nationals’ regular season as well as gift packages from local businesses. Businesses looking to donate to the silent auction are encouraged to email Scott Beck at All money raised by the event will go to benefit local charities. Scotiabank has offered to match the amount raised by the pizza party up to $5,000. Tickets for the event are available at Scotiabank. There are 240 tickets available. Guests are encouraged to get their tickets early before they are gone.

House of Hope turns one SOUTH GLENGARRY, Ontario - Jan. 18, 2018 marked the one-year anniversary of the grand opening of the Rachel’s Kids House of Hope at their current location on Boundary Rd. in South Glengarry. It has been a busy year for the organization that has seen new partnerships and initiatives grow out of the centre. These include a partnership with the Catholic District School Board of Eastern Ontario (CDSBEO), who bring special needs students from schools in the area to the House of Hope. The House of Hope provides support and a safe space for children who are on the autism spectrum or have developmental disabilities. This year also saw the launch of the Rachel’s Kids House of Hope’s 100 Souls initiative. The 100 Souls initiative is a group of 100 supporters of the House of Hope who meet regularly at social events organized by Rachel’s Kids. The club meets for one hour, four times a year and each supporter contributes $100 to attend. Since opening a year ago, Rachel’s Kids


House of Hope has tried to provide services it feels are needed in the community, including summer camps. “We are growing very quickly and faster than anyone anticipated,” said Executive Director Kim Lauzon. Lauzon said that this first year would not have been possible without the strong community support that they have received. The House of Hope has been the beneficiary of the local Tim Horton’s Smile Cookie campaign for the past two years, which raised over $40, 000 for the House of Hope in 2017. The House of Hope was also the beneficiary of the Trunk Sale this past fall and Lauzon says that whenever the House of Hope needs support, the community is right there.

Ontario PC leadership candidate visits St. Andrews Nick Seebruch

ST. ANDREWS WEST, Ontario - Caroline Mulroney, a candidate for leader the Ontario Progressive Conservative (PC) Party made a campaign stop in St. Andrews West on Friday, Feb. 9, 2018. The event was organized by Stromont, Dundas and South Glengarry Conservative MP Guy Lauzon and was held at Quinn’s Inn. While introducing Mulroney, Lauzon remarked how the inn was first built in 1865 by Ontario’s first Premier Sir John Sanfield MacDonald and how MacDonald was buried just a few feet from where he was speaking in the cemetery across the street. Eric Duncan, Mayor of North Dundas and former Conservative Party staffer remarked that it was only decided on Wednesday that

Mulroney would visit the riding. “They asked me if we could get 30 people together by Friday,” Duncan joked to a packed house. Part of the crowd was made up by a group of New Yorkers from Lake Placid having a late afternoon lunch at Quinn’s Inn who did not expect to be caught up in a sudden political event. Stormont, Dundas and South Glengarry PC MPP Jim McDonell was present and said that he would be listening carefully to what Mulroney had to say. “What I’ve seen of her I think she’d be great, she’s a fresh face,” he said, but admitted that he had not yet decided who he would vote for as next PC leader. Mulroney spoke to the crowd about how she felt that life in Ontario was becoming unaffordable, that the province had sunk too far into

debt and criticized the current Liberal government for what she characterized as an adversarial attitude with business. “We have to get back on track,” she said. “So I’m putting my name forward. I know I’m the only one who can beat Kathleen Wynne.” She went on to say that businesses across the province do not want a government working against them. She also joked about the issue around her name, and being the daughter of former Prime Minister Brian Mulroney . “Some people think I’m Ben Mulroney’s sister and because of that I shouldn’t run,” she joked. Ben Mulroney is her brother and a former host of Canadian Idol. Before finishing her address to the crowd Mulroney made a point to state in French that she is the only current candidate for the leader-

ship who is bilingual. After she was finished speaking, Guy Lauzon endorsed Mulroney as a leadership candidate. “Make sure you go out and support this young lady,” he said. Mulroney is curMULRONEY rently in a four way race for the PC leadership with former MPP Christine Elliot, former Toronto city councillor Doug Ford and Tanya Granic Allen, President of Parents as First Educators. The new leader will be chosen on March 10, three months ahead of the June 7 provincial election. Mulroney will be running in the York-Simcoe riding in that election.

punches; delays, cancellations, and not “so elite” accommodations are all part of the deal. It’s no biggie. You’ll get there. And when you do WOW! I’m a beach bum, that’s my vacation of choice. Small little islands I can explore. Little beach bars with local foods. That’s how I roll. I love to spend the day floating around exploring local culture, art studios and markets. Street food bring It on! I love it all! I love not knowing what the day will bring. Merengue bars and salsa music. I swear I’m a Latina in a white girl body. Don’t get me started on tacos and

avocados! Love them! I just wish I could dance like J-LO. I have no idea what this trip will bring, I never really do. Will I like Belize? Will it be one of those places that just feels like home to me, and I’ll be back again. Will I fall in love with it’s people, it’s food and it’s culture? What will I see, do? And please Montezuma be kind to my belly! Whatever the case, I know it will be wonderful and awesome! I will fuel my addiction with beautiful sights, warm oceans and new adventures.

North Glengarry & South Glengarry take top award for Glengarry Routes Heritage Tour TORONTO, Ontario - The Economic Developers Council of Ontario’s Awards of Excellence Gala took place at the Sheraton Centre Toronto Hotel during which the Townships of North and South Glengarry took top honours jointly for their “Glengarry Routes Heritage Tour” Brochure in the Publications Promotional Awards (Print or Electronic) category. This collaborative project’s objective was to investigate, inventory and create a comprehensive list of heritage sites that could be developed into a historic tour brochure titled “Glengarry Routes Heritage Tour” for both the Townships of North and South Glengarry. The logo design echoes the Celtic theme and builds on the already successful joint North and South Glengarry branding as “Ontario’s Celtic Heartland”. Mr. Jeff Manley and Ms. Carma Williams, Councillors for the Township of North Glengarry, Ms. Anne Leduc, Director of Community Services and Ms. Tara Kirkpatrick, Economic Development and Communications Coordinator were present to accept the award on behalf of North and South Glengarry during the 61st Annual Conference of the Economic Developers Council of Ontario. “It is an honour to see the value of our “Glengarr y Routes Heritage Tour ”

recognized in such a forum. This speaks well to the effectiveness of our joint North and South Glengarry economic development and tourism efforts”, stated Ms. Anne Leduc, Director of Community Services for North Glengarry. “This was very much a community driven project”, added Mr. Brown, CAO for South Glengarry when speaking about the “Glengarry Routes Heritage Tour”. “The whole community can take pride in this recognition.” This year’s competition attracted 115 submissions from communities and organizations across Ontario. The Awards ceremony honours winners and honourable mentions for their efforts in promoting their communities for location and tourism opportunities. Economic Development initiatives are also judged as part of the process. Panel experts reviewed all of the entries that covered everything from promotional brochures to infrastructure development projects. Both Townships would like to recognize the contributions to the success of this project by Ms. Kerri Strotmann, formerly from the Township of North Glengarry and Mrs. Kelli Campeau now Clerk for the Township of South Glengarry, under whose mandates this brochure was developed.

South Dundas takes top honours TORONTO, Ontario - The Municipality of South Dundas took Top Honours in the PublicPrivate Partnership Award (Population 10,00050,000) category at the Economic Development Council of Ontario (EDCO) Conference Awards Gala Ceremony. The ceremony was held February 7 at the Sheraton Centre Hotel in Toronto. The EDCO Provincial Economic Development Awards honours economic development efforts from across the province. This is the first time South Dundas has received an award from EDCO. Mayor Evonne Delegarde, Councillor Marc St. Pierre, Chief Administrative Officer Shannon Geraghty and Economic Development Officer Rob Hunter were on hand to accept the award. The award was for the South Dundas Student Technology Partnership between the Municipality, Ross Video and the Upper Canada

District School Board (UCDSB). The project was initiated through a proposal South Dundas made to the UCDSB during the Public Accommodation Review Process. “With membership of over 1000, EDCO is the country’s largest provincial Economic Development Association and the awards competition is extremely competitive,” explained Mr. Hunter. “Winning this award in the Public – Private Partnership Population Category is a real honour for our municipality, especially given EDCO received over 115 award submissions.” “Council is very proud that South Dundas won this Provincial Economic Development Award. It would not have been possible without the efforts of the entire community who pulled together during this process; school family, residents, staff and Council,” added Mayor Delegarde.

Should I be Driving? John Milnes Consider This

Citizens of Cornwall, who have lost their driving privileges for medically related reasons, have once more, a unique opportunity to regain those privileges through a service offered by DAC Medical Vision. DAC Medical Vision, an approved Ministry of Transportation Driver and Rehabilitation Cognitive Assessment Centre and Vision Waiver Assessment Centre, is now a part of the city’s service community. No longer must drivers of automobiles be

challenged because they are required to be tested in a strange city. They can now be tested for their driving skills on the familiar streets of Cornwall. DRIVING AN AUTOMOBILE REPRESENTS FREEDOM, MOBILITY AND INDEPENDENCE. Bringing this service back to Cornwall has been a long drawn out battle. However, medically challenged drivers with suspended licences can now be assessed right here on Cornwall streets and roads. Because a driver of an automobile is able to function on familiar streets the chance of success is multiplied by a huge percentage - now the wheel is being turned from the driver’s seat. There is an old adage “If you don’t use it you will lose it.” Anyone who has lost their driving licence, for medically related reasons, needs to be referred



by their family physician/specialist. Everyone agrees: When a person is unsafe to drive, that person must stop driving. The problem is knowing when to stop. For people who have been driving an automobile for many years, driving may feel mostly automatic. However, it should be understood, driving an automobile is a complex task that requires thought processes, dexterity and quick reactions. Any changes or loss of function in any one of these abilities [physical and vision, cognitive abilities and emotional skills] due to aging, illness or injury may affect a person’s ability to drive an automobile. We have a driving assessment service back in Cornwall. For our citizens, who have been impacted by a medical problem they neither desired, nor wanted, a return to Ontario driving privileges is

once more in the cross hairs of possibility. They have the opportunity to regain their independence - to drive to appointments, to visit friends, to do the weekly shopping. HOWEVER, IF THOSE IN NEED DO NOT USE THIS VALUABLE SERVICE IT MIGHT VERY WELL BE LOST, YET AGAIN. Driving an automobile is a privilege, not a right. The privilege to drive comes with certain responsibilities. One of the responsibilities is to ensure we are medically fit to drive an automobile. DAC Medical Vision’s extremely well qualified staff provide this service at Riverdale Terrace Retirement Residence, 1200 Second Street West, Cornwall. Telephone Ottawa numbers: 613-224-6965 or 613224-7480 and fax # 613-224-0270.

CORNWALL, Ontario – Saturday saw the latest edition of the Aleienated Beer Dinner series take place at the Nav Centre.

Ever lived with a Siamese cat? Nick Wolochatiuk Dances with Words


There are those out there who accuse me of favouring dogs over cats. I plead guilty, but that just means that dogs fit into my lifestyle better than cats. If numbers mean anything, there have been at least ten cats in my life, but only two dogs. The following is a cat story that I wrote almost 20 years ago: This is a thoroughly researched study of the traits of all Siamese cats. It is guaranteed to be 00.07% accurate 19 times out of 20, as it is based

upon the close study of one whole cat for a period of about ten months. ‘Tasha’ was found in a rural culvert early in the winter of 1994-1995. She had just given birth to her first litter of kittens. Unfortunately, none of them survived. Fortunately, some kind soul brought her to the Cornwall Humane Society shelter. She survived. As a reporter, I featured her in the adoptables section of the newspaper. Tasha was adopted. However, a couple of months later she was returned to the Humane Society. “Haven’t I photographed this cat before?” I asked. It was then this reporter’s wife put in her second bid to get me to bring this beautiful looking young cat into our home. From the moment Tasha arrived at our place

she set about to put our other three cats and our ‘little white dog’ in their place. She put us in our place too. For example, for the first time in 18 years we had to provide a litter box. This cat would not deign to use any of our seven acres of forest for doing her you know what. Yes, compared to the submissiveness of most dogs, cats are un-bending, self-sufficient and self-centered. This cat exhibited an ultimate degree of these traits. At 5:57 AM every morning the wailing starts. “Feed me! Get out of bed and feed ne, now!” Her meowing doesn’t work with us, but her completely selfish outpouring of affection does. Tasha hops onto the bed and smothers both of us with face rubs, purring and kisses. Eventually, the little woman of the house

gives in, gets up, and shuffles to the kitchen. That spokesman for our domestic herd has been successful. The others have been waiting patiently at our bedroom doorway, in anticipation of Tasha’s daily victory. “It’s our feeding time next!” they all rejoice, each in their own unique way. Most cats will merely ignore their ‘masters’ when their names are called out, but Tasha also turns her head away, or even walks out of the room, as if to mock our attempts to beckon her. However, if Tasha (or perhaps I should take the liberty of saying all Siamese cats, for this is a serious study) wants to snuggle with us, or bestow some other form of affection, we had better be accepting. Such is the way of all Siamese cats.

CORNWALL, Ontario - The Cornwall Square will once again play host to the Heritage Fair on Saturday, Feb. 24. The fair has been presented by HeritagePatrimoine Cornwall for the past 15 years. There are going to be 13 organizations from around Cornwall and the United Counties of SD&G displaying local community history and telling the story of the heritage of the United Counties. Organizations include the Glengarry Fencibles, The Glengarry Pioneer Museum, the Friends of Crysler’s Farm Battlefield, the Nor’Wester and Loyalist Museum, Railways of SD&G and more. New this year, there will be a display from Akwesasne Geneology who will be on hand to

In addition to informative displays of local history, there will also be books on sale for those historians who want to continue exploring local heritage beyond the fair. The event starts at 9 a.m. on Feb. 25 and goes until 4 p.m. Debbie Ledoux, an organizer of the fair encourages everyone to come out, even those who have not taken an interest in their local history before. “Look around your community and be aware of the history of Cornwall and SD&G,” she said. “Find out about the history of the area and be immersed in it.” For more information about the fair, check out the Heritage-Patrimoine website at www.

CORNWALL, Ontario - Cornwall received a blast of winter cheer at the Civic Centre this weekend as the Ontario Cheerleading Federation holds Winter Blast, a cheerleading competition. Teams from across Ontario competed for a bid to be able to win the World Championship in Orlando, Florida that is set for April of 2018. This weekend, 11 teams competed for the bids, while the competition hosted a total of 23 teams and more than 200 contestants. Bekka Guenther with the Scorpions from Niagara competed in the competition with high expectations. “We did pretty good, we had fun!,” said Bekka. The Scorpions have made it to the World Championship 4 times already and plans to go again this year. The Civic Centre received a good turnout to the event as well, with ticket sales overstepping expectations. “Our sales are at about 1500 people. We are through the roof excited!” Explained Janice Robinson, Co-ordinator for the Civic Centre. The competition was quite the spectacle for patrons too, as the concession stand was opened and high energy music reverberated throughout the complex. Planning for the event was no easy task and began almost 4 months ago with the Federation’s decision for the event to be held in Cornwall for

the first time. “We were ready for a large number of people but we did not anticipate this many,” said Robinson. The event was not only for experienced teams, as some teams, like the Princesses, fit into the younger division where contestants are approximately 5 years old. For those who missed the competition this year, the Cornwall Civic Centre hopes to hold the event again next year as it was a great success.

CORNWALL, Ontairo - Cornwall Public Library will be open on Family Day, Monday, February 19 with special opening hours of 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. There will be several programs for children and families to enjoy: • 10 a.m.: Toddler Adventures (Ages 18 months to 3 years old) • 2 p.m.: Celebrate Family - Family Tree Craft (Ages 4 to 13) • 4 p.m.: Lego Club (Ages 6-12) • Movies: - 10 a.m.: Cats and Dogs - The Revenge of Kitty Galor - 2 p.m.: The Princess and the Frog

Planning for the future Nick Seebruch

As a part of the ongoing budget deliberations, Division Manager for Economic Development Bob Peters made a presentation to the Budget Steering committee about where our local job market stands and where the City plans on going. Not only did Bob’s presentation give a picture of where Cornwall’s future jobs will be, it also gave an interesting picture of the current employment landscape. Peters explained that there were four sectors that his department was pursuing and trying to attract to the City. Namely, he is trying to attract jobs in logistics, advanced manufacturing, food processing and commercial retail. There are good reasons that the city is pursuing these job sectors, especially logistics. Bob pointed out that Cornwall’s location makes it an ideal logistics hub. We are at the crossroads of three major Canadian cities, Toronto, Montreal, and Ottawa. We are connected to two major arteries of commercial traffic, Hwy 401 and the St. Lawrence River. Also, we have the educational infrastructure at St. Lawrence College, which has a logistics program. We can sustain this industry and grow it with people from Cornwall educated here at

home. I have some concerns though about how at least some of these sectors will be affected by automation and how well Cornwall’s economy is prepared to deal with that. According to data from the Eastern Ontario Training Board (EOTB), the work of Material Handlers, those who work at distribution centres, won’t have a lot of their work automated, but will likely be affected by automation in some way. The EOTB currently projects that seven percent of the work done by Material Handlers will likely be automated (85 percent likely) in the next 10 to 20 years. This might not mean that any of their jobs will be taken by machines, but it does mean that their skillsets and levels of training will likely change as more technology enters their workplace. In commercial retail, this is a very different story. According to the EOTB, both retail salespersons and cashiers will likely see nearly half of their workload automated in the next 10 to 20 years. For food counter attendants and kitchen helpers, that number jumps to almost 80 percent. We have a lot of restaurants in Cornwall and quite a few retail stores, to me this shows that we need to be planning for the future to deal with automation in these industries. Investment in technology training and

innovation should be a part of the City’s economic development plan. Full disclosure here, my significant other is someone who is involved in tech training and an advocate of innovation, but I drank the Kool Aid on this one long before I met her. I truly believe that training for the jobs of the future, is something that the municipality should care about. However, if we do in fact lose jobs in the commercial retail sector, there are still a lot of

opportunities in logistics. Bob admitted that some of the distribution centres in town were having a hard time finding enough employees to fill out its workforce and that he hoped that Cornwall would attract more younger workers in the near future. What do you think readers? Does Cornwall have a lack of workers? Should we focus more on tech training? Send me your Letters to the Editor at

tinues to raise their taxes. This leaves us to wonder what better use this money could have had. I know that there are many worthwhile projects across Stormont-Dundas-South Glengarry that could have used this money, as opposed to a luxurious vacation for the Prime Minister. Canada’s Conservatives have always been the voice of the taxpayer. That’s why we’re

demanding Justin Trudeau pay it back: the constituents of Stormont-Dundas-South Glengarry deserve to have the $200,000 used to fund this illegal travel returned to them. They deserve no less.

letter to the editor

Trudeau should pay it back On December 20, 2017, for the first time in Canadian history, a sitting Prime Minister was found guilty of breaking federal ethics law. That’s inexcusable. Yet it does not stop there — Canadians have been stuck with the $200,000 bill Justin Trudeau spent in order to illegally travel to a luxury island.

No one begrudges the Prime Minister the usual security costs when he travels for official business. But Justin Trudeau needs to respect the tax dollars he relies on. Sadly, he did not – in fact, he showed Canadians that he is even willing to spend their tax dollars on illegal trips. All this at a time when Canadians are paying even more for his spending choices while the Liberal government con-

An old saying came to mind the other night while watching Premier Kathy preaching to the converted at a pre-election campaign pep rally. Several placards, no doubt strategically held behind the preem, claimed that among the “gifts” bestowed upon the unwashed by the Liberal government are “Free drugs” and “Free tuition”. The old saying is, “There ain’t no such thing as a free lunch.” Translated: Even if something seems like it is free, there is always a cost, no matter how indirect or hidden. As we head into the June election campaign, expect the government to be serving up a lot of those free lunches ... with your grandkids being stuck with the tab. (Note: Ontario’s debt has tripled since 2004. It now stands at, give or take a billion or two, $312 billion. The annual interest paid on the debit is $11.6 billion. That is a lot of free lunches.) TRIVIA ANSWER How time flies. It was 30 years ago ( Feb. 25) that Dale Hawerchuk’s No. 10 was retired in a centre-ice ceremony at a sold-out Royals game at Ed Lumley Arena. The event was not organized by the team, but by the trainer, Steve Ouderkirk. Along with Hawerchuk, Winnipeg Jets’ GM John Ferguson and former Montreal Canadiens’ defenceman Serge Savard attended. It was the last time the Royals had a paid sold-out regular season game. TRIVIA Before L’Ecole Marie-Tanguay on Holy Cross Boulevard opened in 1972 it was a Roman Catholic girls secondary school. What

was it called? HERE AND THERE The folks who wrote the All in the Family TV episodes would be having a field day with Donald Trump as president. ... The late Gordon Sinclair said that if psychics/ fortune tellers/soothsayers or whatever they call themselves were the real deal why aren’t they making a fortune playing the stock market. ... Those of us who tough out the winter sans a southern escape should be given a tax rebate. ... Just a thought, but perhaps those smart cars aren’t such a smart idea. ... If I win the lottery I’m going to put up the money to publish Bill LaSalle’s book on old radio and newspaper days in Cornwall. The Old Saddle Tramp is sitting on a keeper. ... Another great example of a lumbering justice system: A high-profile case dragged through the local court system for four years ends with a sweetheart plea deal to save the expense of a two-day trial. You’ve got to be kidding. ... The biggest lie told in court rooms is when a defence attorney after his client is found guilty gives the old “He’s so sorry” slice of baloney. ... If the stars align as they should, the June Ontario election will have for the first time in Canada women leading the three major parties. ... Add this one to the euphemism list: New name for shoplifting is external shrinkage. ... Here’s a twist to the #Metoo campaign: A California congresswoman is being accused of groping a young male staffer. ... Three of the last four U.S. commanders-in-chief (aka President) managed to dodge the Vietnam War - Bill Clinton, George W. Bush and Donald Trump. Barack Obama was too young for the draft. Last president to put his life on the line in military service was George H. Bush. THIS AND THAT Hard to find a more “sacred” park in the city than King George Park. Makes you wonder why anybody would want

Snowshoe race at the Summerstown Trails Andrzej Terrence, Special to TC Media SUMMERSTOWN, Ontario - Snowshoers gave winter a run for her money at the fifth annual Dion Snowshoe Race. The Dion Race kicked off their final event of the series to determine the champion at the Summerstown Trails on Saturday, Feb. 10, 2018. The contestants left the starting line at 10 a.m. and returned for the first half of the race by 10:45 a.m. to conclude the Summerstown Forest challenge, a 3.5 km trek. Snowshoers who continued on for the next half of the race were in the running for the title of this year’s champion. In order to become the champion, runners would have to finish first in the 7.5 km trail. Gilles Parisien, organizer the event, said, “It’s going to be challenging as there is a little bit of

moisture in the snow, which sticks to the bottom of the snowshoes, but other than that we couldn’t ask for better conditions.” With last night’s snowfall, many of the trails were pristine and covered with fresh powder producing conditions like no other. For many running the race, it was all in good fun. “There is some good comradery here, everyone is having a good time, and the weather is great!” explained Chuck Charlton. Charlton came from Ottawa just to run in this year’s race after completing last year’s event. Medals and prizes were awarded to the top three contestants and to the top masters of men and women. Dion Snowshoes provided equipment rentals and invite anyone to register for next year’s race.

L’activité fut un énorme succès! Au total, ce sont plus de 600 morceaux qui seront distribués dans différentes familles de notre territoire. Tout comme dans les écoles, le bureau central a également un Comité UNIS dont l’objectif est de changer le monde par différentes actions au niveau local, national et international. En rappel, le CSDCEO a signé un partenariat avec le Mouvement UNIS (Me to We). Il est important de souligner le fait que le CSDCEO est le premier conseil scolaire en Ontario dont toutes les écoles font partie du programme UNIS. « En lien avec notre thème systémique culturel et pastoral Change le monde, le CSDCEO et ses écoles sont fiers de s’associer au mouvement UNIS. L’entraide, le partage et le don de soi sont de belles valeurs catholiques qui sont véhiculées dans nos écoles, ainsi qu’au Bureau central. La participation

Savez-vous qu’une des émissions préférées de ce groupe est: La petite maison dans la prairie! Comme quoi les classiques ne se démodent jamais! Je vous laisse avec des commentaires recueillis directement de certains élèves de la classe de Mme Odette Lacoursière, 3e année de l’école Rose des Vents: William Cayer: J’ai aimé le film La petite maison dans la prairie parce que ça démontre bien comment les pionniers vivaient. Hailey Séguin-Joanette: J’ai aimé faire le beurre parce que par la suite je pouvais bien expliquer à maman comment le faire. Alexandre D’Aoust: J’aime quand j’ai appris comment ils allaient chercher l’eau. Maeve Gauthier: J’ai aimé quand j’ai appris qu’ils faisaient de la lumière avec leur foyer à bois. Alice Montpetit: J’ai bien aimé apprendre comment ils conservaient leur nourriture comme avec des gros blocs de sel.

Comme vous le savez, étant une école internationale, l’école Rose des Vents offre aux élèves la chance d’apprendre en cheminant avec des modules de recherche. La classe de Mme Odette m’a donné la chance d’aller visiter ses élèves pour qu’ils me racontent leurs apprentissages durant leur dernier module de recherche. Le module de recherche avait comme idée maîtresse: “Le mode de vie d’autrefois diffère du nôtre et les peuples des communautés d’autrefois ont grandement contribué à la vie d’aujourd’hui.” Les modules de recherche commencent souvent par un déclencheur, celui des 3e année ne faisait pas exception. Fiona Patenaude, une élève de la classe de 3e année de la classe de Mme Odette, est arrivée dans sa classe vêtue d’un costume de pionnière. Cette arrivée était l’événement qui mettait en marche le questionnement des autres élèves de la classe. Elle n’a pas passé inaperçue et c’était mission accomplie pour débuter le questionnement des autres élèves. Les élèves m’ont raconté durant ma courte visite que les habitations des pionniers vivaient étaient des maisons construites avec des rondins de bois. Dans une maison, une seule famille y vivait contrairement aux peuples autochtones. Ils ont ensuite poursuivi leur entrevue en me disant que les pionniers sont arrivés de l’Europe et que lors de leur arrivée , ils devaient défricher la terre pour y construire leur maison. Ils cultivaient leur terre pour vivre. Ce qui fait en sorte qu’ils se nourrissaient de fruits et de légumes qu’ils cultivaient et qu’ils récoltaient.

South Glengarry, au sujet des « Routes de Glengarry ». « La communauté sera très fière de cette reconnaissance. » Cette année le concours a attiré 115 soumissions provenant de communautés et d’organismes de l’Ontario. La cérémonie de remise des prix rend hommage aux lauréats et célèbre les mentions honorables pour leurs efforts visant à promouvoir leurs communautés en matière d’emplacement et de tourisme. Les initiatives de développements économiques sont également jugées dans le cadre du processus. Un panneau de juges experts ont examiné toutes les soumissions allant de brochures promotionnelles jusqu’aux projets de développement d’infrastructure. Les cantons de Glengarry nord et de South Glengarry aimeraient remercier Mlle Kerri Strotmann, anciennement agente du développement économique pour le canton de Glengarry nord et Mme Kelli Campeau, maintenant greffière du canton de South Glengarry, pour leurs contributions à ce projet.

Cela témoigne de l’efficacité de nos efforts communs pour le développement économique et le tourisme », a déclaré Mme Anne Leduc, directrice des services communautaires de Glengarry nord. « Il s’agissait d’un projet axé sur la communauté », a ajouté M.

Over 125 years of newspaper experience Seaway News staff CORNWALL, Ontario - This past week Colleen Parette and Kim Poirier-Froats each received ‘The Silver Quill’ from News Media Canada (formerly the Canadian Community Newspaper Association) in recognition of ‘25 Years of Distinguished Service to The News Media Industry.’ They join Jennifer Mayer and Rick Shaver, who are already recipients of ‘The Silver Quill.’ These four TC Media employees have over 125 years of service in the newspaper industry. Shaver started in the industry in 1978 in the sales department of a daily. In 1985 he was one of the co-owners and founders of Seaway News, which turns 33 years old this year. Jennifer Mayer started with Seaway News in the production department in 1987 (31 years of service this year) and is now a Sales Coordinator with the sales department.

Colleen Parette started with Seaway News in 1989 as a part-time college student doing her placement and was hired full time in 1990 (28 years of service). She became Production Manager in 2005. Kim Poirier-Froats (26 years) also works in the Production Department. Kim started her career at another newspaper and has been with us since 2004. When people ask how we’ve managed over the past years, the answer is simple says Shaver, “it’s because of dedicated and valued staff like these three employees.” Seaway News has recently said good bye to two key employees. Diane Lafrance retired after 21 years of service and after 15 years, Matthew McConnell has started a new career. Shaver adds, “I’ve been very lucky to have great staff and making the presentations to them in my capacity as Vice President of Ontario Newspaper Association was a honour. Good staff makes for a good product.”

Healthy snacks go down smooth at Immaculate Conception Nick Seebruch

CORNWALL, Ontario - The kindergarten class at Immaculate Conception enjoyed some healthy and tasty fruit smoothies on Tuesday, Feb. 6. The smoothies were prepared by Jill Stewart Regional Coordinator for Healthy Eating for Better Learning. Stewart explained how important it was to provide healthy food for kids at school. “The eating habits you develop at a young age you carry with you,” she said. She went on to say that at a young age, it is important to have an extra boost of energy during

the day that comes from healthy food and said that she sees improvement in concentration and learning from healthy, well fed students. The smoothies were possible thanks to the Toonies for Tummies program. The Toonies for Tummies program is a nationwide program run at some grocery stores that encourages shoppers to donate $2 with their purchase. The funds are then donated to schools within the community to help feed kids healthy snacks. In Cornwall, Food Basics will be the store running the Toonies for Tummies fundraiser from Feb. 8 to 22. All funds donated to the program will stay within the community.

February is Black History Month and at the first Council meeting in February, Councillor Claude McIntosh reminded everyone that an important part of Black History happened right here in Cornwall. Bob Turner came to Cornwall and became the first Black head of a municipal Recreation Department in Canada, and despite discrimination he stayed. After his untimely death in 1961, he was memorialized with the Bob Turner Memorial Arena, which was torn down a few years back. Councillor McIntosh pointed out that we as a city have yet to rectify this. Bob Turner’s name does not appear on any building, park or street sign in the city. Like Councillor McIntosh, I hope this is rectified soon.

Council was briefed on Monday about lameduck rules. Council becomes a “lame-duck” after nominations close on July 27 and if three-quarters of the current council is not running again. At Monday’s council meeting Councillor Bernadette Clement joked that the City better have its 2018 budget settled by then. A lot of members around council had a good chuckle at that one. Seeing as council only passed the final vote on the budget in May last year, five months into the year, Councillor Clement’s prediction might not be that far off. We got another good dump of wintery weather on the weekend. Snow and freezing rain! Now the Weather Network is telling us that we are going to be in the positive temperatures for much of the rest of the month. Well, all I can say is bye-bye snow and good riddance to the winter. Sorry Gabe, not all of us feel a rush of joy when we see the white stuff start to fall. The Chamber awards are coming up really soon. Who do you think will win Citizen of the Year?

Shar’s Tip of the Week Don’t pour grease down the kitchen sink - this is the biggest cause of clogged drains. When draining your sinks after washing dishes or anything with particals, always leave the drain catcher in the sink partly open to catch the dirt before it goes down the drain as you empty the sink. Always flush your drain for several minutes by running hot water through them after every use. Once per month, put two table spoons of baking soda in the drain opening and pour a cup of vinegar down the drain. This will help to keep your drains clear and smelling fresh. Flush with hot water after it sits for about 5 minutes.

Yesterday morning, my wife woke up with a start. When I asked her what the matter was, she said, “I just had a dream you gave me a diamond ring and diamond earrings for Valentine’s day. What do you think it means?” I winked and said, “You’ll know tonight.” In the evening, I came home with a small package and gave it to my wife. She was delighted and opened it excitedly. In it was a book called “The meaning of dreams”.

His son, Michel, also served and was employed by CSIS. In 1992 he was a recepient of the 125th Anniversary of the Confederation Medal which was presented to 42, 000 Canadians. Cornwall natives, these are two local boys who were both recognized for being prominent members of their community.

Over the winter, your car’s air filter can get clogged with salt and other thick debris. A clogged air filter can really lower your fuel efficiency. Replacing a dirty or clogged air filter can improve gas mileage by as much as 10 percent. But how do you know when to change your air filter? The recommended interval is every 19,312 kilometers, but that can be affected by the particular road and air conditions in which you drive. If you do a lot of driving on dirt or gravel roads, then your air filter is going to clog up much faster than an air filter in a vehicle that’s used strictly for highway driving. The only real way to know if you need to replace your air filter is take it out and give it a quick inspection. Interestingly, a slightly dirty air filter works better than a totally clean one. This is because the debris

in the filter becomes part of the filtering process, trapping smaller particles that might have otherwise slipped past. There’s no real science to knowing when it’s time to replace the filter. If it’s really filthy, then it obviously needs to be changed. Otherwise, go with your gut. If you’re preparing for a long summer of hard driving, then you might as well replace it. Air filters are relatively inexpensive.
