Hotel owners say 4% hotel tax too high Nick Seebruch

CORNWALL, Ontario - Cornwall City Council heard at their last meeting the advantages of introducing a Municipal Accommodation Tax or, hotel tax, local hotel owners feel however that four percent is a steep increase that is being introduced too quickly. “I appreciate that the trend around the province is four percent,” said Paul Lefebvre General Manager and Co-Owner of the Best Western Parkway Inn in Cornwall. “I would have preferred two percent.” Two percent seemed to be the consensus amongst the hotel operators in Cornwall. “I think two percent would be easier to implement,” said Kim Coe-Turner, General Manager of the Nav Centre.

Turner explained that the Nav Centre would be affected by a hotel tax and was consulted by the City of Cornwall. Scott Lecky, General Manager and Owner of the Ramada Inn in Cornwall said that while he supported the proposed tax comes at a time when all businesses are facing increased financial pressures. “Hotels are facing difficult challenges this year with changes to employment standards,” said Lecky, referring to Bill 148 which, amongst other things, provides more sick days and increases the minimum wage. Lecky suggested that the tax should first be introduced at the lower rate of two percent to gauge its impact on the market. Several other municipalities in Ontario have already introduced a hotel tax including Ottawa,

Toronto, Mississauga, Brockville, London and Sudbury all at a rate of four percent. In the report submitted to council, city administration states stays that are longer than 30 days would be exempt from the tax and this would include students staying at St. Lawrence College, the Ontario Hockey Academy and the Nav Centre. The report calculates that if the 800 potentially available rooms in Cornwall were occupied 50 percent of the time for the whole year, the City would generate a revenue of $642,400 if the tax rate were set at four percent. Administration stated that at least half of the revenue generated by this tax would have to go to a non-profit venture aimed at generating more tourism. City administration proposed in its report to

give 45 percent of the revenue to Cornwall Tourism, another 45 percent to a designated non-profit and the remaining 10 percent would go to the city’s administration costs. If passed, the Municipal Accommodation Tax would come into effect June 1, 2018.


I discovered SMARTBANKING at Your Credit Union. At YCU I’m an owner instead of a number, which is just plain smarter. It means they exist to make money for me, not from me. So I get the lowest fees and these amazing returns on my term deposits. Choosing YCU was brilliant–and I do say so myself.

International Women’s Day celebrated with talk and tea Nick Seebruch

CORNWALL, Ontario - The NAV Centre in Cornwall hosted a High Tea Luncheon for International Women’s Day featuring a talk by Jackie King, Chief Operating Officer for the Canadian Chamber of Commerce. The event was organized as a partnership between the Canadian Cancer Society and the Cornwall Chamber of Commerce. In addition to the tea, King was also given a tour of the NAV Centre’s facilities including the air traffic control simulation room. In an interview with Seaway News, King gave her advice on one issue that women still face today in the workplace, harassment. “Make sure you speak up,” she said. “No woman should ever feel that they can’t speak up for themselves.” She suggested that any woman who is experiencing harassment in the workplace should confide in someone close to them and keep a detailed record of the incident. King explained that the central themes of her talk at the NAV Centre was around female empowerment and courage. “Play a leading role in your empowerment,”


said King when asked what she intended to tell the women gathered to hear her speak. “Lots of different entities play a role in that, but it is something that you have to lead yourself. If you want to stay at home and raise a family, then you should be empowered to do that.” King herself was for a time a single mother, she eventually became an intern at the public relations firm Hill + Knowlton. She ended her career there in 2017 as a General Manager to take on her current job at the Canadian Chamber of Commerce. “What drove me was the example I wanted to set for my kids,” she said. King also pointed out that courage can come in many forms, but that its impact can always make a difference. “Little things make a difference,” she said. “Women are changing the world in different ways every single day.” There were 150 tickets available for the event. Tickets were $50 each and $10 from each Jackie King, COO of the Canadian Chamber of Commerce and Allison St. Jean, ticket sale went to the Canadian Cancer SocietyB:10” Community Fundraising Specialist of the SD&G Chapter of the Canadian Cancer to help fund research into cancers that impactT:10” Society (Nick Seebruch/ TC Media). women.

Dream a little dream with me Angela Vinet Little Did She Know

So far 2018 has dished out its fair amount of challenges and loss, from friends passing away, to moving away or just simply moving on. With all this change, kinda makes a girl think: what is it I really want out of life?? If I could dream up the perfect happy little dream, what would it be? What would a per-

just be. I want to walk through it’s doors and feel its warm embrace. I want it surrounded by nature and sleep to the sounds of waves crashing all around me. I want to fill it with those I love I most. I want to touch it’s walls and hear the laughter of memories made. I want peace. A small garden I can tend to. I want to live in foreign lands. I want my work to be fulfilling and challenging. I want it to challenge the very depths of my soul. I want to make a difference, change lives, save the world. all that jazz. I want to know that in the end, I did my part to make this world a better place. That I didn’t sell out, I fought the

fectly happy life look like for me? I want a simple life, and by that I don’t mean boring! Anything but boring!! I want adventure & travels, I want to see the world. I want to sail away for months at a time and feel the breeze on my face from sun kissed places. I want passion! I want laughter and above all I want a love so deep, a life without each other would be incomplete. Trust, friendship & loyalty. Belonging. Ownership, knowing I have found my king and he, his queen. I want my home to be a place of refuge and quiet from the world, a place to heal, a place to

good fight. I want to watch my son grow, see the man I know he will be. Watch all of his dreams come true. Grow into my equal, so we can finally share that beer together as friends. I want to hold my grandbabies. Meet the woman of his life. Share in his life. I want to look upon my life and see happiness, a lifetime of wonderful memories and love. A life free of conflict and pain. A drama free existence! How amazing would that be!? Perhaps it’s time I stop dreaming and make this little dream into my reality.

STEO facing driver shortages, CDSBEO hears Nick Seebruch

KEMPTVILLE, Ontario - In a presentation to the Catholic District School Board of Eastern Ontario (CDSBEO) Student Transportation of Eastern Ontario (STEO) explained that they are facing a shortage of school bus drivers. STEO is the transportation consortium that provides transportation services for both the CDSBEO and the Upper Canada District School Board of Eastern Ontario. STEO explained their situation in a presentation to the CDSBEO trustees at their meeting on March 6, 2018. “The shortage is impacting the consistency

of school bus drivers on daily routes, as well as availability of charter buses. Normally a bus company would have a driver pool with a ten per cent spare ratio, and a few charter drivers. Right now the charter drivers are driving school routes, the spare drivers are driving school routes, and office staff are helping with school routes,” said Operations Manager Marc Gosset. Gosset explained that STEO was working closely with the school boards to find solutions to the shortage, which is not unique to Eastern Ontario. STEO has also recently launched a new BusPlanner Delays App to notify schools and

parents of any delays or cancellations of service. The app is available for Apple and Android through their respective app stores and is free for school staff, parents and guardians. “Thank you for making this presentation this evening. I do know from representation of our Board on the STEO Committee, Vice-Chair Ron Eamer, Trustee Nancy Kirby and Associate Director Bonnie Norton, continue to update us on the good work happening at STEO and this evening’s presentation certainly reinforces those reports,” concluded Chair Todd Lalonde.

Winchester named 2017/18 Coach of the Year

OTTAWA, Ontario - The Central Canada Hockey League is proud to announce that Brockville Braves Head Coach Jesse Winchester has been named the 2017/18 Coach of the Year. Winchester, 34, entered his first season as a Head Coach after retiring from professional hockey in 2014. The Cornwall, Ontario native has lead his Braves to a third place finish with 76 points and a 25-19-4 record. The rookie coach takes home the hardware after playing parts of eight seasons in the NHL with the Ottawa Senators, Florida Panthers and Colorado Avalanche. He took a few years off before joining Brockville this year. Braves star goaltender Justin Evenson gives a lot of credit to Winchester on the team’s success.

“Winch has been the backbone since the beginning for us. He is the best all-around coach I have ever had the opportunity to play for. He brings the knowledge of the game, Intensity, passion and knows what he expects from guys in order to give it everything you have every night for him.” Evenson also said that he acts as a mentor to all the players on the Braves, teaching them how to play the right way. “He is just as much as a teacher and mentor of the game as well as a friend and an asset to life lessons. He brings a fire every day to the ice that the guys on the team just feed off. When he says something- you listen, you respect him and you respond to it because you know who it’s coming from and


he knows firsthand what it takes to get to the places we all want to go.” Braves captain Andrew Jarvis said he deserves this award so much because he cares so much about his players and wants the best out of them. “He’s done an unbelievable job with us. Always making us better in every situation even away from the rink. His care rubs off on the team and we all unite and want to win for him and for each other. We’ve listened to him all year and we’ve bought in, he’s getting the coach of the year because he deserves it!” said Jarvis. Jesse Winchester spent one season in the EOJHL Jr. B (Now CCHL2) before playing for his hometown Cornwall Colts for three seasons from

2001-2004. He scored 78 points in 38 games as a 16 year old with the Winchester Hawks and recorded a career 150 points in 98 games with the Colts over three years. He then committed to Colgate University where he played four seasons and made his NHL debut in 2008 with the Ottawa Senators. Winchester and the Braves finish their regular season this week before the playoffs begin next week.

the Maritimes). Over the span of 26 seasons, the Cornwall Colts have sent over 100 players on to play with NCAA Division I to Division III colleges and universities and to higher leagues including Europe and the NHL. The list of former Colts stars to play in the National Hockey League includes Kyle Baun, Jesse Winchester, Cam Barker, Yann Danis, Kent McDonell, Eric Meloche and Chad Kilger. Four Colts Alumni are currently working for

NHL teams including Jamie Herrington (NY Rangers Scout), Jeff McKercher (St. Louis Scout) Justin Roethlingshoefer (Anaheim Strength & Conditioning) and Casey Torres (Pittsburgh Scout). Success takes a team effort both on and off the ice. From our players, coaches, trainers, management, our dedicated volunteers, our billet families, our loyal fans and our committed Community Partners, each stakeholder plays an important role in our team’s accomplishments.

Spring potholes

Tim Houle Auto Talk

Nasty potholes will be responsible this spring for tire damage, rim damage, steering and suspension damage, shocks, along with potential damage to struts, ball joints, rack and pinion steering to name just a few. In a worst case scenario, the dreaded pothole can force you to have to call a tow truck. Follow these tips for safer spring driving: If you hit a pothole and then immediately notice the car pulls to one side or the steering wheel is no longer straight, take your car to a reputable automotive service provider. This is because there is a very good chance that your car has been knocked out of alignment and may have damaged front end components. The next time you stop the car, inspected the tire and rim for any damage. If there is a bulge or visible cord material on either sidewall of the tire, it must be replaced immediately. If the rim flange (edge of the rim) is damaged or bent, the best practice is to purchase a new rim. If you hit a pothole and you get a flat, pull to the shoulder immediately, if possible. If a tire goes flat after hitting a pothole, it’s junk and will need

to be replaced, but the rim may still be in good condition. Most vehicles can be driven on a completely flat tire for a short period of time without destroying the rim. But, trying to make it to the next exit or side street may damage an expensive rim, so drivers should stop the vehicle as soon as it’s safe to do so. Don’t slam on your brakes when you hit a pothole because it pushes your whole front suspension downward and into the pothole and actually making the hit a lot harder. If you’re on a road with many potholes, go slow if you can.

CORNWALL, Ontario - The Cornwall Colts (formerly the Massena Americans / Turbines) came to our city in the 1992-93 season and in their inaugural year went to the second round of the playoffs. The team was owned by Don Derry. The club changed ownership in the 1994-95 season and finished as the CJHL Champions and went on to the Fred Page Cup in Joliette, QC. Al and Brenda Wagar owned the team at this time. The 1995-96 season was just as successful, as the team again won the CJHL Championship and went on to the Fred Page Cup in Dartmouth, NS. The next three seasons the Colts were always in the mix when playoffs came around. The 1999-2000 season saw the team win another CJHL Championship and go on to win the Fred Page Cup, advancing to the Royal Bank Cup in Fort McMurray, Alberta. The 2000-01 season brought another CJHL Championship and a trip to the Fred Page Cup in Coaticook, QC. The Colts made the playoffs each of the next five seasons and also hosted the Fred Page Cup in the 2002-03 season, which was a great success. The 2006-07 season became a rebuilding year under a new ownership group and new scouting staff. The team also hosted the Royal Bank Cup in May 2008. The team is now owned by Ian MacInnis. The 2011-2012 team under head coach Ian MacInnis was one of the best in recent history. The team was in the top ten of all


Hockey comes home to Cornwall Nick Seebruch

This weekend our city will be hosting Hometown Hockey and what better place for an event celebrating Canada’s favourite past-time than Cornwall? We have always had the capacity to support our strong hockey culture here in the city. When I was growing up, we had multiple arenas in Cornwall. We had the Bob Turner, the Si Miller and of course the Civic Complex. Today, we have three ice pads at the Benson Centre, we still have the Complex, which seats 5,000, and in the winter, we have outdoor rinks across the city. I recently asked our new Tourism Coordinator Kevin Lajoie if he thought that Cornwall was a hockey town and his response was, that when you have community members like his

neighbour, who after a long day of work, and on weekends and even holidays like Christmas, is still willing to go out and take care of his neighbourhood’s rink so that kids in his community have a place to play hockey, then in his mind there is no doubt that Cornwall is a hockey town. The reason why we have volunteer’s like Kevin’s neighbour I believe is because so many residents of Cornwall have fond memories of hockey from their youth. I myself remember learning how to skate at the Char-Lan Rec. Centre and I even remember seeing a game at the Si Miller Arena when I was very young in the early 1990s. Fast forward to the present and imagine a young Cornwall family taking their daughter or son to go and see the Hometown Hockey events this coming weekend. These are memories that will stay with that child for the rest of their lives

and may even inspire them to make hockey their sport, hobby or obsession. This weekend, go to Hometown Hockey, show why Cornwall is a hockey town and if you have the jersey of a Cornwall team, then wear it,

whether it be Colts, Royals, Nationals, River Kings, Comets, Aces or Mavericks. For the love of hockey, let’s make this event a memorable chapter in Cornwall’s hockey history.

Simon Fraser wing – opened by Prime Minister Lester Pearson in 1967 – and set up branch libraries in the east, at St Joseph’s Park, and the west of the city, in Broadview Parks. Her arrival here was greeted by a pile of letters from Counties’ residents, asking the City of Cornwall for library services. Reading material in the area between Cornwall and Ottawa was strictly limited to a handful of small independent libraries were scattered throughout the countryside, in places like South Mountain, Iroquois, Newington, Ingleside, Lancaster and Martintown. Anne, and her husband, Herman, put a

bookmobile out on a pilot project to crisscross the Counties, stopping at schools and on country roadsides. Stocked with reading material from the Cornwall library, the bookmobile and collections of books in villages like Finch, Avonmore and Moose Creek were warmly received by residents, young and old. Local governments, careful of their tax dollars, were not always open to idea of contributing to libraries, which were seen to some extent as being ‘more for the ladies’. But Anne persisted, and with Cornwall Public Library sharing its resources and expertise, she ultimately opened branch after branch in the

Counties, in former stores and schoolhouses, beneath arenas, in a former convent, a former Masonic Lodge, and a historical residence. Today, they are bright, busy community centres in villages across the Counties, providing activities for children and adults, books, reading and viewing materials – and electronic opportunities undreamed of by Anne Nyland. Cornwall and the United Counties owe her a debt of gratitude. Frances Marin

we wanted to retire. We are comfortable in Cornwall, close enough to visit family in Quebec and Ontario, while being closer to the highway 81 for travel down south. We are not unhappy with our decision, except for one big annoyance. What IDTENT, pronounced I D TEN T, substitute the letters TEN with the actual number IO, came up with the brainy decision to charge two seniors more money per month for water than what they pay for electricity, or natural gas. They are using the faulty logic of charging by tap, toilet, etc. rather than by actual usage.

If you happen to have an additional bathroom or two for family members or friends convenience when visiting and staying over, well, too bad so sad, you pay a much higher water tax bill. So by this method, two retired residents who may only reside here for only seven months out of the year could pay two or three times that of residents living with only one or two bathrooms in their home. This faulty logic does not make sense, most people would agree that it is fair to pay for what you use and much more cost effective as there

would be more care to not waste this resource. Who knows how much less water would be consumed if everyone paid for what they used. I sure am glad the electricity and natural gas companies do not charge by switch, plug, or outlet instead of actual usage. I am not involved in politics or City business, perhaps I will in the future learn more about municipal affairs because it kind of makes you wonder what other kinds of faulty logic are being applied to other areas of municipal affairs. Kindest regards, John

letters to the editor

Remembering Anne Nyland Dear Editor, Anne Nyland, who died last month at the age of 99 came to Cornwall as Chief Librarian in 1964. She was a highly effective librarian during her twenty years here, and leaves quite a legacy for literacy and public service in this area. At that time Cornwall Public Library – the main source of reading material in English and in French – was housed in the Cline House on Second Street East. (If you had the money, there were two small places to buy books in town: Kyte’s and Weber’s, both on Pitt Street.) Anne enlarged the library building with the

Dear Editor, My wife and I are relatively new to the Cornwall area, transplanted from the West Island of Montreal Quebec. It took us over two years to find the most appropriate home to meet our retirement needs that would be closer to the highway 81 used to travel down south. We were aware that municipal tax, electricity, insurance, etc. was higher than in Quebec, however, there were other tax benefits and costs that helped offset some of these and this was where

Welcoming the Hometown Hockey caravan Claude McIntosh Mac’s Musings

Some local hockey memories to reflect on as we get ready to welcome the Hometown Hockey caravan to town on the weekend. * Hard to top the 1972 Memorial Cup victory when the re-built Cornwall Royals, with 12 firstseason players in the lineup, won the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League championship and upset the Peterborough Petes in the Memorial Cup championship game in front of a sold-out crowd (10,000) at the Ottawa Civic Centre. Goaltender Richard Brodeur was named MVP. Brodeur and three teammates, Gerry Teeple, Bob Murray and Dave Johnson, were named to the tournament all-star teams. * The Royals weren’t expected to beat the talent-packed Sherbrooke Castors in the 1980 playoffs but took the final in six games with a dramatic come-from-behind 5-3 win at home in the sixth game. The Royals trailed 2-0 after the first period and 3-2 with five minutes left in the game, but two quick goals by Gilles Crepeau gave the Royals the lead with Dale Hawerchuk’s empty net goal giving the hometown heroes a 5-3 victory. They were huge underdogs in the Memorial Cup at Regina but defenceman Robert Savard’s overtime goal at 1:28 in the championship game shocked the Peterborough Petes. * It was two-in-row with a 5-2 victory over Kitchener Rangers in the 1981 Memorial Cup at Windsor. The Quebec Junior Hockey League would not regain Memorial Cup bragging rights until 1996 when Granby Predateurs won junior

hockey’s top prize. * The 1942-43 Cornwall Army squad, members of the Quebec Senior Hockey League, was one of the best collections of hockey talent seen in the city. The lineup, all army officers with the Canadian Army basic training centre in Cornwall, included former pros such as Punch Imlach, Frank Mario, Gerry Brown, Frank Church, Connie Dion, Jimmy Conacher, Tommy Ivan, Jack Riley and Baz Bastien. The military mothballed the club after a wild on-ice brawl. The club reinvented itself, without army players, as the Cookies. * Some of the senior hockey team names over the years: Colts, Flyers, Chevies, Cougars, Pontiacs, Petros, Calumets, Cookies and Falcons. * The Calumets were named after a General Foods baking powder. Team owner Reg Woodward gave his post-war senior club the name in hopes of reeling in General Foods as a sponsor. General Food said thanks but no thanks. * The Royals started in the Cornwall City Junior Hockey League. The name was picked by founder Larry “Red” Lascelle who was a big fan of the Montreal Royals Hockey Club. In 1963 the Royals joined the Ottawa-Hull Junior Hockey League. The league became the Central Junior Hockey League the following season. In 1968 the Royals left the CJHL for the Montreal Metro Junior Hockey League which joined the Quebec Junior Hockey League to form the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League. The Royals became the first non-Quebec team to play in the league. * Members of the Hockey Hall of Fame with a Cornwall connection are Edouard Newsy Lalonde, Cy Denneny, Doug Gilmour, Dale Hawerchuk and Billy Smith, the latter three played for the Royals. * Newsy Lalonde played with the Cornwall Sweepers at age 16. The club was called the


Sweepers because the players swept the Victoria Arena ice between periods. * Billy Smith was one of three brothers Gordie and Jack - who played for the Royals. They came from Perth. * A Feb. 10, 1966 Central Junior Hockey League game at the Water Street Arena saw the Royals set a junior hockey scoring record with a 43-0 win over Hawkesbury Meteors. Every Royal except goaltender Harold Murphy had at least one point. Murphy faced just six shots, four in the first period. Royals led 12-0 after the first period and 26-0 after two frames. Defenceman Pete Prevost picked up 15 points, seven of them goals. Hawkesbury goaltender Francois Dellaire actually made 34 saves. Prior to that the most lopsided victory for a Cornwall hockey team was in February 1948 when Cornwall Calumets smothered Alexandria Maroons 35-0 in an intermediate contest. * Gary Herrington scored the Royals first regular season goal in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League, a road win over Drummondville Rangers. Steve Molaski, who went on to star at Royal Military College, scored the club’s first regular season goal in the Ontario Hockey League. * When the Allan Cup was Canadian amateur hockey’s Holy Grail, the 1938 Cornwall Flyers battled their way to the final round, losing to the Trail Smoke Eaters. Until Canada created a national men’s hockey team in the late 1960s to play in the Olympics and world championship, the Allan Cup champion represented Canada. * Cornwall lost its only indoor ice rink in 1933 when the Victoria Arena on Second Street West was destroyed by fire. For two seasons Cornwall teams played on outdoor rinks in the city or booked indoor ice in Maxville and Morrisburg. * Cornwall Community Arena (aka Water Street

Arena) was built in 1936. A fundraising drive raised most of the $100,000 (the property was purchased from the Colquhoin Estate for $4,000) through $10 shares. Construction started in August and the official opening was held on Nov. 16 with a crowd of 2,000 on hand to see two local teams, the Flyers and Canadiens. * In the fall of 1942 the Montreal Canadiens played a pre-season game at the Water Street Arena. Rookie Maurice Richard, who later earned the nickname Rocket, scored his first goal as a Hab. * Winnipeg-born Aggie Kukulowicz, who played centre for the Cornwall Chevies of the Ontario Senior Hockey League in 1950s, was fluent in the Russian language. He was employed by Team Canada as a translator for the 1972 Summit Series. In 2004 Kukulowicz received the Paul Loicq Award from the International Ice Hockey Federation for his work in promoting the game of ice hockey world-wide. He died in Toronto in 2004. * The most expensive gamble by a local hockey team owner is arguably the decision by local hockey promoter Reg Woodward in 1945 to import 150 blocks of ice from Ottawa for the base of an artificial ice surface in the Prescott Arena for his junior club. Thanks to an abnormally mild winter, the surface melted away in December. **************** TRIVIA ANSWER The Howard and Sons plant which opened in 1954 is now called BASF. TRIVIA In a 29-hour period, a March blizzard called “The Big Blow” dumped 52 centimetres of snow, whipped by fierce winds, on Cornwall and area. City streets were so clogged that heavy equipment had to be used to clear some streets. Highway 401 was littered with an estimated 500 transports. Everything came to a standstill.

Gabrielle Davidson Adams is a third-year student at the OHA and has been invited onto the show to help pick the three stars from Sunday’s hockey game. The OHA is a unique feature in Cornwall, and there are not many other communities that have an organization quite like it. “I can’t think of another place they’ve been to that has a facility like this,” said Pete Montana, OHA Women’s Hockey Coach and Female Hockey Director.

The OHA says that it is happy to be involved in an event that is so important to the community. “We are very fortunate to be here in Cornwall,” said the OHA’s Giles Lascelle. “It is a great community to work with great facilities.” The OHA currently has around 150 students, and 20 teachers. The OHA operates as a high school, with their students receiving a high school diploma upon graduation. The OHA has had alumni who have been drafted into the NHL and over 100 students go on to university hockey teams and NCAA competition. The OHA building was damaged in a fire in May 2016 but re-opened in September 2017. “It was a little hectic at first,” said Montana. “But the staff really pitched in at the start of the year to get everything ready for the students.”

Sears to be torn down Nick Seebruch

CORNWALL, Ontario - The old Sears at the Cornwall Square will soon be no more. Karen Burns, Retail Manager at the Cornwall Square said that sooner rather than later, the space once occupied by the outlet retailer will be torn down. Sears occupied the top and bottom floors of the west wing of the mall, over 96, 000 ft2 in total. According to Burns, while nothing is concrete yet, the owners of the Cornwall Square, Partners REIT intend to build high quality

residential rental properties in the area currently occupied by Sears. There is no word yet on how many units will be in the new rental property or the price range as those details are still being worked out. The Cornwall Square opened in 1979 and its west wing was occupied by Sears until this past September. The Sears location at the Cornwall Square was closed on Sept. 24, 2017 after the company, Sears Canada, went into bankruptcy protection. The Bankruptcy of Sears Canada cost 12,000 employees their jobs and threatened the security of their pensions as the company struggled to pay off its creditors.

Raising awareness of violence against women on International Women’s Day

18 - Wednesday, March 14, 2018 - Seaway News -

CORNWALL, Ontario - St. Lawrence Secondary School (SLSS) dance class students demonstrated their moves in the Cornwall Square Food Court for International Women’s Day on Thursday, March 8. The event was organized by Sexual Assault Support Services for Women in SD&G and Akwesasne (SASS) and SLSS dance teacher Abi Fontaine under the banner of V-Day and One Billion Rising. One Billion Rising is a mass action organization dedicated to ending violence against women. “The campaign, launched on Valentine’s

Day 2012, began as a call to action based on the staggering statistic that 1 in 3 women on the planet will be beaten or raped during her lifetime. With the world population at 7 billion, this adds up to more than one billion women and girls,” One Billion Rising states on its website. Roughly 15 students participated in the event which involved a dance set to the song “Break the Chain”. The dance itself was choreographed by Debbie Allen. “We want people to be educated,” teacher Abi Fontaine said of the performance. “My students are in shock that we still need this movement and that there are these things still happening around the world.”

Food Fest returns this August Nick Seebruch

CORNWALL, Ontario – Beyond 21’s Food Fest is returning for Saturday, Aug.18 and will be featuring a new partnership this year. This year, Food Fest is partnering with Your Arts Council (YAC) to provide live entertainment right on the street. The YAC’s YACbuskapalooza event will be taking place during Food Fest and up to 10 buskers will be on the street providing lively entertainment to go with the delicious food. “We’ve had local performers and artists in the past, so this is a very logical growth for us,” said Beyond 21 Executive Director Jane McLaren. Once again, Food Fest will be taking place from First St. to Third St. along Pitt St. Last year, Food Fest added a new spot on the street to feature local musicians with their Ontario 150 Culture Stage. The Culture Stage will be returning again this year at Pitt and First streets. Beyond 21 is working with the local Francophone community to bring back more

French performers, which were a popular feature with the community last year. There will also be opportunities for the kids to get involved in the arts and culture with three different craft activities happening during the event, facilitated by local artists. McLaren said that Cornwall’s downtown is already excited for Food Fest’s return. “The downtown is very excited about this,” she said. “Merchants are already talking about specials they are going to do.” Last year, on the same weekend as Food Fest, the Kinsmen also held their annual car show in Lamoureux Park and over at the Civic Complex, Cornwall Tiny Convention, CoTiCon was taking place. It was a weekend were there were events taking place from Cornwall’s waterfront, right through the downtown. There has been some confusion over the past couple of weeks after the Seaway Food Festival announced it was closing. The Seaway Food Festival is a separate entity from Food Fest. Seaway Food Festival organized events like Beer Fest, Poutine Week, Le Burger Week and Restaurant Week.

Beyond 21 Executive Director Jane McLaren and People Connector Brett Desrosiers hold the Food Fest fork (Nick Seebruch/ TC Media). Money raised by Food Fest goes to support supports over 4, 000 participants throughout Beyond 21.

AKWESASNE – After a short and valiant battle with cancer, Mr. Christopher P. Thompson, 39, peacefully passed away early Sunday morning, March 11, 2018 at Cornwall Community Hospital, where he was surrounded with the love of his family and friends. Chris was born February 20, 1979 in Cornwall, the son of Jerry and Connie M. (Bero) Thompson. He attended Akwesasne Mohawk School on Cornwall Island until the age of 13, when he enrolled at Northfield-Mt. Hermon Prep School, where he graduated. He later attended and graduated from Trent University in Peterborough, Ontario. In 2001, after his graduation, he started working for the Canadian Government in the Federal Economic Development Agency, first working in Peterborough and later transferring to London, Ontario. In 2012, he returned to Akwesasne working as the Director of Economic Development first with Mohawk Council of Akwesasne and most recently with the St. Regis Mohawk Tribe. Chris was active throughout the area with various economic development agencies including, North Country Regional Economic Development Council (NCREDC), American Indian Alaska Native Tourism Association (AIANTA), United Southern and Eastern Tribes Economic Development Board, St. Lawrence County Economic Development Study Advisory Board, Akwesasne Area Management Board, Community Neh-kanikonriio Council, the Strong Roots Board. Chris had a larger than life personality and greatly touched the lives of all he met. He was a proud supporter of his local communities and was a strong advocate for buying and shopping local. He cherished the time he was able to spend on the golf course, cooking, listening to music, and being on the boat. He valued the friendships he gained throughout his life through playing cribbage, fantasy football leagues, and playing pool. His generous spirit throughout his short life will be greatly remembered in the various acts of kindness to the community at large. Chris was engaged to the love of his life, Lesley Lang and they were blessed with a son, Angus William, who was born only 6 weeks ago; he is also survived by his parents, Jerry and Connie; his sister and brother-in-law, Kelly and Tyson Back and their daughters, Kenna and Nola; his brother and sister-in-law, Jordan and Diana Thompson and their sons, Adrian and Liam; a chosen nephew, Skye White; his godchildren, Conley Back, Coral Boots, and Liam Thompson. Chris is also survived by his paternal grandmother, Christine Thompson; his godfather, Leslie and Elaine Thompson; his father-in-law, William Lang and Rose MacCulloch; his mother-in-law, Susan Lang; his brother-in-law, Martin Lang; sister-in-law, Kaylie Lang; and many aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends. He was predeceased by paternal grandfather, Stewart Thompson on August 20, 1997; his maternal grandparents, Genevieve Bero on June 23, 1962, Angus Bero on November 16, 1982, and Mildred Bero on September 3, 2008; and his godmother, Charlene Cole on August 8, 2012. Friends may call at the Donaldson Funeral Home, Massena on Wednesday and Thursday 4:00 - 9:00 PM. A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated Friday 1:00 PM at St. Regis Catholic Church with Rev. Jerome Pastores, celebrating. In lieu of flowers, those wishing may honor Chris by contributing to a local benefit of your choice. Memories and condolences may be shared with the family online at

Pleasure eventually comes Nick Wolochatiuk Dances with Words


First: happy? Second: content? Third: pleasure? I stated the case for ‘happy’ as being only a quickly passing thing, a ‘yahoo!’ moment. ‘Contentment’ was described as a peaceful and enduring condition. When are we most likely to express the feeling of pleasure? Almost all of my FM radio listening comes from CBC and NPR (National Public Radio). I’m an interview junky. Experts such as Anna-Maria Tremonti and Michael Enright have taught me how to do good pre-interview research, then attentively listen to the exchange between

interviewer and interviewee. Only after doing that can one ask the kind of question that will evoke responses that are rich, interesting and stimulating. Interviewing is a lot like fishing: if you don’t catch what you’re after, you have to be persistent; perhaps try changing your bait and how you play with it. Quite often, the interviewee is slow to open up. Perhaps the memory needs a bit of prodding. Perhaps the questioning has to take a different tack. Eventually the interview morphs into a friendly conversation. It is no longer regarded as intrusive interrogation. The trickle of reluctant responses slowly evolves into a free-flowing river of released memories and shared confidences. When it’s time for the wrap-up and and a thank you from the interviewer, the interviewee almost invariably comes out with, “It was a

pleasure” or “My pleasure” or “The pleasure was all mine.” The awkwardness and tension has disappeared. That’s what I refer to as the moment of pleasure, satisfaction on the side of the interviewer, pleasure on the side of the interviewee. That’s one of the rewards of the investigative journalism. The journalist then goes to his computer with the scribbled notes or raw tape to create the story that becomes a wellreceived radio program, a column or article in a newspaper or magazine or a key chapter in a book. Three experience pleasure: the interviewee, the interviewer and finally, the audience. As a columnist, I also experience a very special moment of pleasure. Sometimes it comes after a long series of stages, starting with

inspiration, followed by perspiration and ending in hitting the SEND button. Inspiration is the moment of conception, when the spark of an idea enters an author’s mind. In writing a book, the perspiration period is sometimes longer than nine months, even longer than the 22 months it takes an elephant to give birth. During the perspiration period, there’s researching, interviewing, Googling, crosschecking of findings, sweating over the keyboard, negotiating with spellcheck, inserting and deleting punctuation, shifting words, phrases, sentences and paragraphs from one place to a better place. If satisfied, hit SAVE. As soon as the SEND button is activated, then comes the writer’s fleeting moment of pleasure.

The CAMH crew were decked out in pink for Pink Shirt Day on Feb. 28. The goal of Pink Shirt Day is to raise awareness for an anti-bullying message (Nick Seebruch/ TC Media). Isabelle Delage of South Dundas is launching a new album called Songs from My Little Couch. She launched the album at an event this past Saturday at St. James Anglican Church in Morrisburg. I was wondering if she was related to another musical Delage, Roxanne Delage, who used to be a columnist for this paper.

For some it was an upset, but Doug Ford came out on top of his party’s leadership race on Saturday night. Who would have thought in January that the Ontario Progressive Conservative Party would be led into the next election by Doug Ford.

Nice smile Terry Muir. Look at all those kids and grandkids.

A man walks into a bar and the bartender asks, “What’ll you have?” The man answers, “A scotch on the rocks, please.” The bartender hands him the drink, and says, “That’ll be five dollars.” “What are you talking about? I don’t owe you anything for this,” the man replies. A lawyer, sitting nearby and overhearing the conversation, then says to the bartender, “You know, he has a point there. In the original offer, which constitutes a binding contract upon acceptance, there was no stipulation of remuneration.” The bartender now upset off, says to the guy, “Okay, you beat me for this one. But don’t ever come back here again!” A few days later, the same man walks into the bar. The bartender says, “What do you think you’re doing in here? I can’t believe you’ve got the audacity to come back!” The man says, “What are you talking about? I’ve never been in this place in my life!” The bartender replies, “I’m very sorry, but this is uncanny. I feel like you were here a few days ago. You must have a double.” To which the man replies, “Thank you. Make it a scotch.”
