Proposed cat by-law: You feed it, you own it Nick Seebruch

CORNWALL, Ontario - Cornwall City Council reviewed a proposed cat by-law at their meeting on Monday, May 14, 2018. City administration presented the bylaw to City Council and asked councillors to review it and give feedback. The by-law suggested mandatory spay/ neutering of all cats, and mandatory registration. The by-law would also outline strict rules around cat ownership. The law states that if someone is found to be feeding a stray cat, that they will then be considered to be the owners of the cat, and responsible for registering and spaying/ neutering the cat. “People who feed stray cats are now responsible for stray cats are now responsible for those cats, I don’t agree with that,” said Councillor Justin Towndale. “My mom feeds birds, does that mean she should be responsible for the birds?” Chris Rogers, head of the City of Cornwall’s By-law Department said that this

measure had already been enacted in another Ontario municipality, either Peterborough or Whitby, he said he could not recall which. In addition to strict laws around ownership, the proposed by-law would also restrict cats being allowed outdoors. If the by-law were enacted, all cats would have to remain indoors unless on a leash or in a secure enclosure. “Doing so would offer some immediate effect to what is a longer term spay/neuter program, principal to mitigating uncontrolled propagation,” the proposed by-law reads. “Anticipated benefits might include less neighbourhood nuisance behaviours like raucous interaction, spraying, and preying on wild life and reduce public health hazard potential inherent with garden urination/defecation, flea infestation and similar.” Rogers said that he inserted this suggestion into the report to provide an immediate solution to the problem.

A tragedy with a local connection Nick Seebruch

CORNWALL, Ontario - Last Friday, May 4, during the fierce windstorm that swept across Ontario, two young arborists, Adam Sura, 28, and Zach Plater, 18, were out in the storm while most people were staying safe inside. They were trying to clear away branches from a road in rural Milton, ON, so that a school bus filled with students could pass when the tree fell on them. Sura was pronounced dead at the scene, and Plater died later in hospital. A tragedy to be sure that these two young men died while on the job trying to make

their community a little safer during a dangerous storm. For those who might think that Milton is a far away land from here, and that what happens there has little impact on a community like Cornwall, but don’t be so sure. Bruce Wickham is a resident of Cornwall and is a cousin of Sura’s mother, Debbie Wickham. “These kids were heroes,” said Wickham. “They were out there trying to do their job.” Wickham said that he wants people to remember that we are all connected. “Our world is very small,” he said. “To make it a better place, it takes all of us.” A tree will be planted in memory of the

two young arborists. “He loved everything to do with trees and was very fortunate to have found his passion,” reads Adam Sura’s obituary on “Adam was a talented musician, an avid snowboarder and a well rounded athlete. He was a gentle soul with a heart of gold who spread and shared love with everyone whose path he crossed.” Bruce Wickham will be traveling to Orangeville tomorrow, May 10, for a visitation service for Adam. A funeral service for Adam Sura will be held on Friday, May 11 in Orangeville.


Proposed cat by-law: You feed it, you own it In July 2018 the SD&G OSPCA held a one“This is meant to give immediate affect to day cat amnesty during which 73 cats were surthe uncontrolled propagation,” said Rogers. He said he spoke with the SD&G OSPCA who rendered in a single day. Each cat costs the OSPCA $514 to house. told him that there is nothing wrong with this That cost does not include spay or neutering, suggestion. “In fact, they encourage it,” he vaccinations, and medical care. Approximately continued. He explained that feral cats were 30 percent one-third of all cats surrendered to the SD&G of the problem, the rest were roaming cats who OSPCA require medical attention. A cat can start reproducing at as young as have owners, but are not spayed or neutered. Cornwall has a high roaming cat popula- four months old. One female kitten can birth tion. The number of cats surrendered to the around 40 kittens in a year. Between 2008 and 2009 there was a temSD&G OSPCA 30 percent of thein province Weis also offer house financing oac porary by-law in Cornwall under which stray total.

cats were caught and spayed or neutered. During that time, 300 cats were captured. The program was funded by the SD&G OSPCA through fundraising, but it was not sustainable. Cornwall City Council requested that administration formulate a new by-law to deal with the cat issue. Council received the report. Any future cat by-law will presumably be based on this report, but public consultations would take place before it would go back to council for final approval.

Independent cat rescuers have tried to tackle the problem themselves, and some of them were at the council meeting on Monday night. Mary-Jane Proulx of Roy & Cher’s Rescue was skeptical about the proposed release. “It will never work,” she said. “They need to go back to trap and return.” Under trap and return, cats are trapped, spayed/ neutered and then released back into the wild. “We need low-cost spay and neuter clinics,” said Mellissa Alepins of Tiny but Mighty Kitten Rescue, who was at the council meeting with a two-week-old kitten that she had saved from the city dump.

Beyond 21 feeling blessed for interim location at Knox-St. Paul Church Shawna O’Neill, Special to TC Media CORNWALL, Ontario - Beyond 21, a foundation working with differently abled adults, has moved following the Catholic District School Board of Eastern Ontario (CDSBEO) acquiring T.R. Leger, the old General Vanier School. This space will be converted into an elementary school. The foundation occupied the school for six years and developed a growing program that has over 50 families supported. “The Hub for Beyond 21 Foundation would like to say in wholeheartedness, a sincere thank you to the Upper Canada District School Board!” said Tish Humphries, President of the Board of Directors for Beyond 21, in a media statement. “This wonderful opportunity allowed us to become financially sustainable in the first two years, as per our agreement, and to grow and flourish in our staffing and program development…Thank you to both David Thomas and Superintendent Tim Mills for making it possible for us to stand by our vision.” Knox-St. Paul approached the foundation and offered to host them. According to Jane McLaren, Executive Director for Beyond 21, the members and neighbours of Knox-St. Paul have received the foundation graciously — making them feel welcome after only two days in the space. “It felt very much like home coming into here,” said McLaren. “So it’s like stepping into a future,

Beyond 21 welcomed UCDSB Superindentent Tim Mills to their new location at Knox-St. Paul Church to thank him for their six years at General Vanier. Pictured from left-to-right ar Leesa Jarvo, Shannon Savard, Tim Mills, Jane McLaren, Gerry K., Tish Humphries and Emma Humphries (Nick Seebruch/ TC Media). and spreading our wings a bit, and at the same time continuing (services), and it’s been really wonderful to do this transition.” Beyond 21 is continuing regular services and is hoping to increase the amount of families it supports, especially because it is in a larger space now. The foundation has a lead on a permanent

location but expects to temporarily hosted for at least nine months. “We are really blessed to have this opportunity now which will transition us going forward,” said McLaren. On the last day at T.R. Leger School, United Way presented Beyond 21 with a Piece by Piece

quilt, from the Ground Soap initiative, to wrap and carry their memories and accomplishments forward. The quilt now sits as a memento in the foundation’s new location. Beyond 21 is now located at 800 Twelfth St in Knox-St. Paul’s United Church. Visitors are always welcome.

Thanks a brunch, Mom Shawna O’Neill, Special to TC Media CORNWALL, Ontario – The Optimist Club of Cornwall held it’s second Mother’s Day brunch on Sunday, May 13 at the Optimist Club clubhouse. “We have a huge brunch, we have live entertainment and your mother gets a free flower,” said Terry Muir, incoming President of the Optimist Club. “We’re just trying to make the day feel special — they deserve it.” The brunch was from 10 a.m. to noon and flowers were provided by Roys Florist. Ticket prices were $20 for adults and $5 for children. “This is our second year and we were pretty successful last year, so we decided to do it again,” said Muir. The Optimist Club is hoping to make the brunch an annual event. Kathryn Brunton, an Optimist Club member

of about 10 years, attended the brunch with her daughter Michaela. She didn’t have any plans for the rest of the day besides relaxing. “As long as I’m not the one doing anything, and they’re cooking and cleaning,” said Brunton with a laugh. “It’s usually very quiet, so this is just perfect.” According to Muir, one of the biggest challenges for the Optimist Club is raising awareness about where they are located. “We put on a number of events at the clubhouse here, but the hardest thing is getting people to know where it is,” said Muir. “We have a beautiful clubhouse. Holding events gets the word out so people know where we are.” One of the upcoming events for the Optimist Club will be the RCMP Musical Ride on May 26 at Lamaroux Park. The Club’s event calendar can be found

United Counties warn shared services could be affected if Cornwall strike happens Nick Seebruch

UNITED COUNTIES of SD&G, Ontario - The United Counties of SD&G warned the public on Monday, May 14 that their residents might be affected by the looming strike in Cornwall. City of Cornwall employees who are members of various local chapters of the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) have threatened to strike on May 17. The strike would affect indoor workers, outdoor workers, library employees and paramedics. Due to their essential service agreements, paramedics would not be able to strike fully, but they will be working on a reduced schedule. In Cornwall there are usually nine ambulances covering the area, under strike conditions, that would be reduced to three. “For the duration of any labour disruption, the assistance of the public is needed to ensure those that truly require emergency services

have them available,” the United Counties said in a media release. “Please call 911 for ambulance assistance if it is needed for severe emergencies such as shortness of breath, chest pain, major traumatic injury or having suffered a period of unconsciousness. If possible, please have someone drive you to your clinic, doctor’s office or emergency department for all other medical issues.” Other services affected include Social & Housing Services, Child Care, Ontario Works and the Ontario Renovates, Social Housing (Registry) & Rent Supplement Program. During the strike, the Winchester satellite A Cornwall office for Cornwall Social & Housing Services will Paramedic be closed, Child Care applications will have to ambulance be made in person at the Cornwall office, (Ali Geary/ TC Media). Ontario Works applicants are being asked to apply online or by calling 613-933-6282 ext. 3205. “Inside workers have reached the same in an earlier CUPE media statement. “We need to work stoppage. We’re ready to work hard in impasse faced by all other city workers,” said see some movement at the bargaining table if negotiations, but we’re also preparing for a Keith Sandford, CUPE National Representative we are going to avoid a city-wide strike as necessary.”

Celebrating in song Nick Seebruch

CORNWALL, Ontario - The Eastern Ontario schools of the Catholic District School Board of Eastern Ontario (CDSBEO) gathered in Cornwall on Thursday night, May 10, to celebrate their faith based education in song. Sunday, May 6 to Sunday, May 13 was Catholic Education Week and the school board held events celebrating their education all week long. Every year, one event held to help celebrate Catholic Education Week is the “Celebrating our Catholic Faith in Song” event, which was held Thursday night at the old GV auditorium, now a part of St. Joseph’s Cathoic Secondary School.

There were 13 schools from across the region in attendance that night with their school choirs ready to celebrate in song. Last year’s event drew more than 800 parents and students. “Parents are so proud of their kids and they love to get to see them perform,” said Natalie Cameron, Superintendent of the CSDBEO. The event was kicked off by Holy Trinity Catholic Secondary School with the songs Ave Maria and From Now On and was closed by St. Joes with Don’t Stop Believing and Good, Good Father. Baked treats were provided by the St. Matthew’s Catholic Secondary School’ hospitality class. Money raised by the event went to support the St. Vincent de Paul Society.

Pictured are the students of St. Finnan’s Catholic School from Alexandria at the CSDBEO’s Celebration in Song event (Nick Seebruch/ TC Media).

Dishing out delicious treats Nick Seebruch

CORNWALL, Ontario - The students of St. Matthew’s Catholic Secondary School senior hospitality class were dishing up something delicious on Thursday, May 10. The kids were holding their third culinary fundraiser in support of the school’s hospitality program. The students had created sweet and savory treats that they were selling for donations from cut outs of food trucks in their class room during lunch. All the money raised went back into the hospitality program to help buy more groceries to keep the program going.

The St. Matthew’s hospitality class gives students both a high school credit and a college credit thanks to a partnership with St. Lawrence College, providing a bridge for students interested in becoming cooks. Hospitality teacher Kelly McDermid said that the students would be going to St. Lawrence College in Kingston next week to see their culinary program. “For us, it helps transition them into the workplace,” said McDermid. “It eases anxiety and gives them real world experience.” The students created treats like homemade donuts and ice cream and served them up to guests which included representatives of the Catholic District School Board of Eastern Ontario (CDSBEO).

Meals supporting mental health Nick Seebruch

CORNWALL, Ontario - The third annual Au Vieux Duluth Fundraiser Dinner started at 11 a.m. on Wednesday, May 9 at the Au Vieux Duluth in Cornwall. Guests of Au Vieux Duluth could order the chicken brochette, pork souvlaki, butterfly shrimp or from the kid’s menu in exchange for a donation of their choice. “We support many fundraisers every year,” said Alex Paradis, owner of Au Vieux Duluth Cornwall. “We want to be involved in the community and give back and I believe that this is a good cause.”

All money donated will go to support the Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA) of Champlain East’s Talk About Mental Illness (TAMI) program. The TAMI program has been running for 18 years and is aimed at school children. The program is run in schools at no cost to the schools. Last year, the fundraiser brought in $38, 000 gross, and $28, 000 gross in its first year. Those coming into Au Vieux Duluth on Wednesday could also support the CMHA by bidding on items in their large silent auction. The CMHA turned 100 this year. The local office at 343 Pitt St. held a celebration on Friday, May 11.

Kid’s Korner unveils upstairs Baby Boutique

CORNWALL, Ontario – The highly anticipated Baby Boutique at Kid’s Korner officially opened on Saturday, May 12 — just in time for Mother’s Day. The grand opening included free cupcakes and coffee, a draw for a gift basket, free giveaways and the unveiling of a baby photo gallery. “The wall of baby photos is all local babies,” said Leslie Ouderkirk, who owns the store with her husband Kevin. “Customers who saw our post on Facebook submitted their photos. So we took a variety of some in black and white, and some in colour, some with newborns.” Dana McLean, who works with Cornwall Economic Development, explained how she assisted the Ouderkirks when applying for

grants for the building through Cornwall’s Heart of the City revitalization program. She thinks that the Baby Boutique is a great step for the program as it utilizes the second story space, which is what the program is encouraging for the city’s downtown buildings. “It’s really exciting because when I had my first child I bought my stuff from Kid’s Korner, 25 years ago,” said McLean. “It’s nice to see that a local business has been around for so long and seeing it expand.” The Ouderkirks feel that they have trendy, good quality products. They feel that they offer a personalized shopping experience for customers and their children. “We’ve always had baby products,” said Leslie Ouderkirk. “My husband started the business with furniture baby products and then we got into toys. The main level just got way too crowded so we needed to open up the upstairs,

From left-to-right Kevin Ouderkirk, Dana McLean and Leslie Ouderkirk cut the ribbon at the grand opening of Kid’s Korner upstairs Baby Boutique. so we figured we’d make it a Baby Boutique and sort of separate the two businesses.”

Why not amalgamate emergency services? Nick Seebruch

Maybe Mark MacDonald was on to something. When I first heard his idea to amalgamate all of Cornwall’s emergency services into one service I thought it was unfeasible and would not achieve his goal of reducing the emergency services budget. Granted, MacDonald also wants to reduce the emergency service budget through cuts to bring it down where it was a few years ago, and I don’t think that is feasible thanks to rising gas prices and inflation. His plan to amalgamate the services however, there might be something to that. Bringing all the services under one umbrella for starters would immediately mean a reduction in cost at the Chief level. Instead of having a chief for each service, one amalgamated service would mean one chief, which means there would be one person getting the largest salary within the services and one person getting

those high-end benefits and pension, instead of three. Also, I would imagine that this would reduce staffing at other levels. Right now, each service has its own support staff, when amalgamated there might be redundancies there that could be phased out through attrition. Also, while this new amalgamated service would still have to maintain at least three fire stations, two police stations and the paramedic bay on Campbell St., the support staff and administration could all be housed in one building. Maybe the older buildings could then be better used or sold off to accommodate this streamlining of the services. I have yet to find any evidence however of something like this being considered at the municipal level anywhere else in Canada. The council of Mountain View County in Alberta did vote in favour of a resolution calling on the Province of Alberta to amalgamate its emergency services in 2017, but there is no evidence

that it went further than that. Perhaps if Mark is so passionate about this idea, he should lobby council to pass a motion to have the idea reviewed and costed by an independent third party. On the surface, it looks like amalgamation could potentially save money while maintaining the current levels of service, which to me, makes

it worth spending the money on investigating it

Hyde Park is protected as well as Stanley Park in Vancouver. Why is that? These cities know the value of their parks and they are not going to be sold because the land around the park is doubly valuable —because of the parkland. With 30 million visitors annually to Central Park it is clear that beautiful people-places within a city are invaluable. Of all the cities along the St. Lawrence, Cornwall has a unique opportunity to protect and preserve. In this exciting time of reinventing our community from factory town to 21st century park and people place we can do something modern, unique and incredibly desirable with the land along the river. Quit egging-on construction there. You ask for opinions from your readers. Here’s mine. The City should immediately enter into negotiations to buy all of the land along the waterfront. They should do it now to be first in

line. They should request our MP to actively champion and lobby this. We don’t need any type of living accommodation (condos, houses, apartments) on the water’s edge. They all need parking spaces, streets, sewers, lights, garbage pick-up. Tenants want peace and quiet. Our vibrant and community-building public celebrations in the park would soon become a thing of the past. Encourage developers to build on the land along the North side of Water Street. Let them build tall to look down on the waterfront park and the river views—yes—like New York’s Central Park. Think big! Insist that for every new waterfront-view structure, a number of low cost housing units be built. It’s time for contractors to become responsible builders of a community and not just builders for profit. Lily Worrall

further. What do you think readers? Is amalgamating our emergency services a good idea? Would it save money, or could it cost lives? Email me a Letter to the Editor at

letter to the editor Dear editor, I think the City must, absolutely, purchase all the waterfront property owned by the federal Ministry of Transportation. But, I would like to know why the federal government is denying Cornwall first refusal? Perhaps we need a more pro-active MP to lobby on the City’s behalf. If the likes of Chevrier or Lumley were walking the halls on the Hill, Cornwall would be heard and it would have the right of first refusal. It is, after all, our waterfront. I wonder why you are so eager to caution your readers that the City might not always do with the land exactly what the community wants. City council is put in place by the people to carry out their wishes. And it’s been proven several times that if council attempts to build on park land, the people gather, to voice their displeasure and demand a bad-policy reversal. It’s a hackneyed phrase but “what part of ‘no’ don’t you

understand?” You state that there will be opportunity for developers to build on waterfront land—it is just a matter of where. Oh really? Why are you so eager to assure private enterprise that they can build on the waterfront? What’s in it for us …or our grandchildren? It seems you feel that buying all of the waterfront land will be an expensive investment…and that selling parts of the waterfront is something the City could always consider at some point down the road if it was in dire straits financially. Buying the waterfront land will be, you say, “a smart financial investment”. How about undertaking a smart people investment for future generations? It’s not like there isn’t land for building all over the city! In all the financial ups and downs of New York City (and there have been many) they have yet to sell any of the 843 acres in Central Park. London’s

businessman played for the B.C. Lions team that lost the 1988 Grey Cup to the Winnipeg Blue Bombers by a single point., 22-21. A fourth-round pick in the 1985 CFL draft, he was the Lions’ rookie-of-the-year. DIALING BACK Some of the downtown sights and sounds circa 1950s: Fred Esper’s Capitol Shoe Repair shop which offered shoe shines.

Money might not buy a get-out-of-jail card all the time, but it can delay the process. In November 2015 a wealthy Pembroke dentist was convicted of impaired driving causing death. The accident, which killed a young father/breadwinner, was in March 2011 near Kanata. The well-financed dentist hired one of the best/most expensive legal teams in the province. It wouldn’t be farfetched to assume the legal bill was $200,000 and counting. But Judge Neil Kozloff, an experience defence lawyer who was hearing his first major case as a judge, four years after the trial process started found her guilty. Kozloff was one of the lawyers involved with the three-year $50 million Cornwall Inquiry into sex abuse allegations. The inquiry would still be going on if the Liberal government hadn’t pulled the plug. One of her bail conditions was not to purchase or consume alcohol. She broke the condition a few weeks later when caught buying two quarts of vodka in a downtown Ottawa LCBO. Determined to beat the conviction on a technicality (her blood-alcohol level was 2-1/2 times over the legal limit which put her in the hammered category), Natsis hired another high-priced legal team and launched an appeal, which kept her out of jail. The appeal dragged the case, and the grieving family, through the court system until last month when the court ruled that it was time for her to start serving the sentence. So, eight years after she was charged by the Ontario Provincial Police, Dr. Christy Natsis is behind bars.

But the odds of her serving five years in the slammer are somewhere between slim and not-at-all. She will be eligible for parole after serving one-third of the sentence. All she has to do is behave herself in jail, which is expected, and give the parole hearing her best tearyeyed sob story, and for the first time sound remorseful. It took seven years of precious court time to get her behind bars. She will be out in less than 24 months. Little wonder 86% of people responding to a Toronto newspaper poll question “Do you think our justice system is working efficiently” said no. SPORTS STUFF Came across a 1983 Pat LaFontaine television interview in which the future Hockey Hall of Famer (2003) said he wanted to play junior hockey for the Cornwall Royals but the plan was derailed when the Belleville Bulls drafting just ahead of the Royals took the Detroit resident. Instead, he signed with Verdun of the Quebec Junior Hockey League.

Candidate Interview: Jim McDonell Nick Seebruch

UNITED COUNTIES of SD&G, Ontario - In an interview with Seaway News incumbent Stormont, Dundas and South Glengarry MPP Jim McDonell of the Progressive Conservative Party gave his vision for the future of the riding and his stance on a few of the major issues of the 2018 campaign. Education is an issue for a large riding like SD&SG with many small towns dotted across its landscape. In 2016, both the public and Catholic English language school boards in the region went through their Pupil Accommodation Reviews. Early drafts of those plans would have

seen schools in the riding like Char-Lan, Seaway District, CCVS and others closed and consolidated. McDonell said that he wanted to see better funding for rural education. He responded to the Ontario NDP’s plan to have a one-year moratorium on school closures as a band aid solution. “Moratoriums are easy,” he said. “You really have to look at how we are providing education.” McDonell also responded to another NDP plan. The Ontario NDP want to see Hydro One entirely publicly owned again, but McDonell said that that plan is not as easy as it sounds. “I think we favoured keeping it public,” he said. “But now the Liberals have made it really hard to buy back.”

McDonell said that his party, if elected would dismantle the Green Energy Act, which was supported by the Ontario NDP, and McDonell says that the act is forcing Hydro to buy electricity at much higher prices. McDonell also said that locally, his party wanted to create a better environment for municipalities by providing better sources of municipal funding. “There is an issue of having an open and transparent government,” he said. “You need to see where the money is going.” In SD&SG McDonell is competing against Marc Benoit of the Ontario NDP and Heather Megill of the Ontario Liberal Party. The province heads to the polls on Thursday, June 7.

schools,” said Megill in an interview with Seaway News. She pointed to efforts made by the provincial Liberals to support rural funding, including a $1.39 million investment in the UCDSB, some of which they are using to build a new superschool in Cornwall. She also championed her party’s policies on energy and the environment, claiming that the Ontario Liberals have cut electrical bills by 25 percent while in government and have pursued greener options. “I believe in climate change and we have to re-tool for the future,” she said. “We need to get off of fossil fuels.” She said that her and her party seek to build

a better future for generations to come. “As a teacher I’ve seen a lot of families come to me and say my life here is not what I wanted it to be, but I want my children to have opportunities that I didn’t have,” she said. Megill has lived in SD&G for 27 years and loves that area and the cultural mosaic that she says thrives here. She will be running against incumbent MPP Jim McDonell of the Progressive Conservative Party and Marc Benoit of the Provincial NDP.

CORNWALL, Ontario - Heather Megill is running as the Ontario Liberal candidate for the riding of Stormont, Dundas and South Glengarry in the June 7 provincial election. She said that she is running on a three-pronged platform aimed at improving long-term care, providing dignity of work and revitalizing the region. She explained that issues like rural education are important to her. In 2016-2017, the Upper Canada District School Board (UCDSB) enacted a Pupil Accommodation Review, under which several rural schools were threatened with closure. “I feel strongly that we need community

Marc Benoit candidate for provincial NDP Nick Seebruch

CORNWALL, Ontario - At the meeting of the Ontario NDP local riding association, Marc Benoit was acclaimed as their candidate for the 2018 provincial election, during their meeting at the Navy Club in Cornwall on Tuesday, May 8. Benoit has served as president of both the provincial and federal riding associations of Stormont, Dundas and South Glengarry (SD&SG) for the past year and he has been involved with the NDP for eight years. After being acclaimed, he explained to the riding associations that he believed that their party had the best vision for the future of Stormont, Dundas and South Glengarry and the Province of Ontario. “Imagine what this community can get done when an NDP government funds our hospitals and medical professionals,” Benoit said. “I believe in the collective good. I strongly believe there is such a thing as a society and we mold the type of society we live in.” He said that he believed his party represented the party of hope in the 2018 election. “We can’t let the Ford Tories win and import the politics of cynicism from the U.S.,” said Benoit,

referring to previous statements made by Progressive Conservative Leader Doug Ford in support of U.S. President Donald Trump. Benoit promised that if his party forms a government that it would mean more health coverage for workers, further integration of Ontario in the global economy and to return Hydro One to the status of a wholly owned public interest. Yesterday marked the first day of the provincial election as the Wynne Liberal government dropped the writ and campaigning officially began. Benoit and the SD&SG Ontario NDP riding association are starting this campaign with $12,000, a part of which will be used for the rent of their new campaign office on Pitt St. in Cornwall next to Love, Love Food. Of the major party candidates running in SD&SG Benoit is the youngest at 29-years-old, but he said that he did not believe that age was something that would weigh heavily on voters. “I don’t see age as being a factor,” he said. “I think people in this riding look for whether or not you’re qualified.” While SD&SG has not elected a member of the Ontario NDP to the provincial legislature, Benoit said that he feels confident in his chances this election, pointing to traditionally low voter

turnout in the riding and his intention to get out the vote through his party’s platform. He explained that his party had plans to address major issues affecting the region, like rural education. “The NDP wants a complete moratorium on school closures,” he said, going on to explain that his party would also review the formula for rural education. He said that his party also wanted to work with small businesses to ease their concerns

around the changes the Liberal Party made to labour laws with Bill 148. Additionally, he pointed to the need for the province to stop downloading expenses onto municipalities, which some Cornwall Councillors have pointed to as a reason for rising property taxes. Benoit and his team will be moving into their new office this Saturday with door-to-door campaigning starting next week.

2018 marks the 14th anniversary of Rachel’s Kids and it continues to evolve with the ever-changing landscapes of philanthropy by writing a new chapter into its foundation via “Small Moments of Joy” – an initiative created in 2014. Small Moments of Joy is a program focused on local children battling life threatening or chronic illness. The program grants wishes for these children – with the goal of allowing them to forget their illness or upcoming / ongoing treatments or surgeries, and for a moment or two focus on a moment of joy. Our goal is to aid in the recovery process by providing a positive and happy experience for the child and his or her family, but with a focus on the young person. Harboured in this program is the belief that positivity aids in the recover and healing process. Rachel’s Kids First Small Moment was the purchase of a pool for a local boy, Joel Fast, who is living with developmental delays, as a result of cancer treatments. Since then we’ve helped spread some joy to well over 50 kids in SD&G and surrounding area. One Small Moments of Joy project involved buying a special bike for a very special little girl. Gabrielle Lariviere, a student of East Front Public School, was outfitted with her very own special-needs bicycle. Like something out of Batman, the three-wheeled bike offers her more stability, greater control and also includes safeguards for her caregivers like brakes and the ability to help her steer. It also provides Gabrielle with new opportunities for social interaction with peers.

In 2014, Rachel’s Kids launched the Helping Hands Program – an off shoot of Small Moments of Joy. There were many cases applying to Small Moments of very young children suffering from serious illness but being so little, they couldn’t communicate their interests or the things they wished for with Small Moments of Joy. So, a new program branched out in order to better help our tiny little locals and their families through Helping Hands. We were quick to realize that the stress, travel and time to take these young children to treatment was placing huge financial burdens on young families. In developing Helping Hands, we felt that we could assist with specific situations such as these and through this program we wanted to contribute by giving out gas cards, food cards, prepaid phone cards to better help these families cope with basic living expenses while their children were undergoing treatment. (The children all got a little something too). This year, we were blessed with meeting this

beautiful local family and were able to contribute through our Helping Hands program during this family’s very difficult time. All thanks to our generous community donors of course. “My nephew was taken to CHEO last Friday and they found a tumor on his kidney and it was cancerous. They’ve recently removed it and are doing chemo... It’s been a crazy week and he’s had some ups and downs and he’ll have chemo throughout the summer... He is only 2 and 1/2 years old.” Pamela Nuttall-Hutt writes about her nephew Max. “The diagnosis is a Wilms tumor on his kidney. He’s had his kidney and lymph nodes removed, as well as bone marrow check to ensure nothing is in his bones. He will have a total of 19 weeks of chemo.” Rachel’s Kids Helping Hands Program was able to help this family with some much needed gas and grocery cards in order to assist with the expense of having their son in the hospital. We’re praying for health and strength for this family.

We are very excited to have built some amazing memories with our Super Kids Campers! Super Kids Summer Camp is a camp designed for our friends with special needs and Rachel’s Kids is the only centre in SD&G that offers a summer camp geared to friends with disabilities. Our camp runs from 2 weeks to 8 weeks and we partner up with our local agencies to assist with funding for families to afford camp costs. Our summers are packed with fun structured activities and adventures and we look forward to see these smiling faces again.

The Gray Family and their slave, John Baker Sara Lauzon Wayback Playback

James Gray was a Lieutenant-Colonel in the British Army. At the end of the American Revolution, British officers were given large land grants to settle into new colonies. Where Gray’s Creek is situated today, is the land that Colonel James Gray owned and lived on. (It has obviously been named after him.) Colonel James Gray had four coloured slaves. Two were women, and two were men. The men were brothers: Simon and John Baker. James Gray died in 1795, and left his land and property to his son, Robert Isaac Dey Gray. When Robert took control of his father’s property, he decided to travel to New York State, and purchased a coloured slave named Dorinda. Dorinda was Simon and John’s mother. Robert brought Dorinda back to his farm, and freed her. Dorinda ended up working for Captain Samuel Anderson, a local judge, as his house servant. (Captain Anderson’s land is down the road from Gray’s Creek, where the Glen-Stor-DunLodge is today. There is a plaque detailing

The Canadian Encyclopedia states, “In some ways, Baker’s life was unique. He may have been the last surviving Upper Canadian slave. He had seen his adopted homeland become Upper Canada, Canada West, and then, the Dominion of Canada.”

Local club wants to help you move forward in 2018 CORNWALL, Ontario - Winter is behind us and the Cornwall Multisport Club wants to help you spring into action. The local club offers a multitude of events, training opportunities and social activities designed to help you connect with like-minded individuals and families. While many people might associate it only with running, there are numerous cycling and swimming events to ensure a well-balanced approach to fitness. As well, the club organizes its very popular Learn-to-Fun program which begins in midAugust and continues for 10-weeks. The program culminates is a 5-km road race in late October. There are approximately 200 members in the club, from Ironman athletes to newbie runners, and all levels are welcomed. “While our club is home to several stellar athletes who’ve participated in high-profile events like the Boston Marathon or various Ironman competitions,” said Rick Croney, club president, “our primary goal is to help encourage people to become more physically active while enjoying themselves. “Our mandate is to have fun, make new friends who share common interests and motivate each other.” New members also receive a stylish CMC tuque for joining, and if you register for a family membership, you receive two tuques. These are available on a first-come, first-serve basis for members. They are one-size fits all and are terrific for winter training, as well as cooler spring and fall days. Upcoming events include Victoria Day

Chase, May 21; Super-Sprint Triathlon, June 3; CMC Kids’ Day, July 7; Jumble Run, July 10; Open Water Swim Race, Aug. 3; Labour Day Chase, Sept. 3; Fall Duathlon, Sept. 15; Fall Trail Run, Oct. 6; Fall Road Race, Oct. 27; Winter Party/ Awards/AGM, Nov. 18. Additionally, members receive a monthly newsletter, access to the Facebook group, sponsor discounts, and are eligible for year-end awards. “We also offer numerous training opportunities,” added Croney. “Come the end of April, Monday night duathlons will be held in St. Andrew’s West, and once the St. Lawrence River warms up, there are open water swims later on Friday afternoons. “Tuesday and Thursday night runs are held from the Aquatic Centre throughout the year, and club members often organize longer Sunday training runs.” Registration is now open for both individual and family memberships. Cost for individual memberships are $45, while family memberships are $85. Family membership consists of adults and children living in the same household (children away at post-secondary education are considered living at home). As well, student memberships are available for $25 (high school students, and full-time post-secondary students). To register, “The Cornwall Multisport Club is an amazing group of people of all ages. They love to be active, encourage and support newcomers, and have a blast while doing it. I’d encourage anyone interested in learning more to contact us,” Croney said.

A 65-year-old woman had a heart attack and was taken to the hospital having a near-death experience. Seeing God, she asked “Is my time up?” God said, “No, you have another 33 years, 2 months and 8 days to live.” Upon recovery, the woman decided to stay in the hospital and have a face-lift, liposuction, breast implants and a tummy tuck. She even had someone come in and change her hair color and brighten her teeth! Since she had so much more time to live, she figured she might as well make the most of it. After her last operation, she was released from the hospital. While crossing the street on her way home, she was hit and killed by an ambulance. Arriving in front of God, she demanded, “I thought you said I had Another 33 years? Why didn’t you pull me from out of the path of the Ambulance?” God replied... I didn’t recognize you!

CORNWALL NISSAN - Seaway News - Wednesday, May 16, 2018 - 35






Cornwall teacher recognized with Prime Minister’s Award

Nick Seebruch

CORNWALL, Ontario - Laurie Crawford has been a teacher for 16 years, and in that time has learned that teaching about the connections that bring us together and promote understanding are sometimes more important than teaching curriculum out of a book. It was announced this week that Crawford had received the Prime Minister’s Award for Teaching Excellence Certificate of Honour in recognition of her work in indigenous education. Crawford is a teacher in the Conseil des écoles publiques et de l’Est de l’Ontario (CEPEO), Eastern Ontario’s French public board. In her

current position, she supports teachers across the school board in integrating indigenous perspectives in classrooms ranging from K to Grade 12. She has been working in this position since September. “School books often only present one part of the truth,” Crawford explained, which is why she has tried to integrate real world experience into the classroom. She does this in different ways, like by inviting indigenous seed keepers to come and talk to a class about the make-up of the local soil, or about how agriculture can be approached from a social or archeological perspective. Crawford grew up in Cornwall and went to General Vanier high school. Her daughter is

Mohawk and Crawford says that her daughter is very interested and involved in her culture. “It is important to create these links,” Crawford said. She says that teachers can play an important role in reconciliation with Canada’s indigenous peoples. “In terms of reconciliation, teachers have a role in this,” she said. “I appreciate the recognition, but there are many many other teachers who are working toward reconciliation.” She says that she emphasizes authentic and primary sources in the study of indigenous peoples and cultures. “This is something you can’t Google,” she said.
