Vandals who trashed the ROC chalet and damaged 14 vehicles on civic centre grounds July 7 will be arrested, York Regional Police told the Advocate yesterday. It’s just a matter of time, police said. Investigators with 3 district headquarters are combing through video surveillance tape and forensic evidence and confirm two individuals were involved. Two male suspects between 17 and 22 are being sought, confirmed Jordan Redshaw, the town’s communications co-ordinator.

River dredge issue resurfaces BY HEIDI RIEDNER

Should local property owners pay $80,000 to dredge the Black River? Councillor Ken Hackenbrook thinks it’s a way to boost tourism and strengthen the local economy and wants the issue to come back to the council table. Mr. Hackenbrook wants council to reconsider the issue of the

town paying to dredge the mouth of the Black River after his request to have it added to the 2012 budget was defeated. In April, Mr. Hackenbrook proposed adding dredging of the Black River to the town’s 2012 budget at a cost of $80,000, but the motion was defeated since CAO Winanne Grant was still in the process of compiling a report examining the need, viability,

jurisdictional and financial implications of such a move. Mr. Hackenbrook hopes to get a seconder in support of his motion at next Monday’s council meeting to, once again, re-open the matter. Frank Sebo is one Sutton homeowner and High Street business owner who hopes the issue is revisited. See page 7.

What should be province’s health care priorities? Your ideas sought By Teresa Latchford

Have your say on health care priorities as the Central Local Health Integration Network seeks input to help shape its three-year integrated health service plan. The strategy, which will commence in 2013, will act as a guide,

spelling out priorities and strategies to improve the health care system, Central LHIN CEO Kim Baker said. “A good idea can come from anywhere,” she said. “It’s important for us to have feedback so we can develop a local plan focusing on local priorities.” The healthcare needs and service

4To learn more about the integrated health service plan process, view the strategic framework, complete the survey or provide suggestions on how health services can be improved, visit gaps in the Central LHIN, which includes York Region, Bradford West Gwillimbury, New Tecumseth, Essa and Adjala-Tosorontio, are different from communities served by the 13 other LHINs across the province. A local plan will help hospitals, doctors and family health teams better serve patients, she said. “Many people have strong views about health care and we are here to listen,” Ms Baker said. “I hope people will openly share their views on what needs to be done to make the system work better.” The current integrated health service plan has brought the LHIN tangible results, such being the first of the 14 LHINs to meet its targets for surgery and diagnostic wait times. A patient at Mackenzie Richmond Hill Hospital, formerly York Central Hospital, would previously have to wait months for an MRI scan, but that has been reduced to 28 days. The LHIN laid out five areas of focus in the online survey for the new plan, but feedback and suggestions aren’t limited to the defined subjects. The organization welcomes all feedback, as patients and health service providers are on the front line and can identify the largest gaps in care. One of the focus areas is improving supports for senior citizens and people who are at a high risk of being hospitalized after receiving care. Making it easier for patients to navigate the health care system, moving needed services into more communities to allow people to receive care closer to home, continuing the advancement of regional health care programs and creating a more collaborative network between family physicians, hospitals, long-term care facilities and community health providers to improve quality of care are also part of the strategic principles. Prevention is a driving force behind many of the priorities the organization has outlined. Managing chronic disease will continue to be an area of focus, making improvements to help family physicians and other healthcare providers create treatment plans for patients together, rather than relying on the patient to be the liaison. The plan will be submitted to the Health Ministry the following month and once given the green light, the LHIN will release the guidelines.

Beauties vie to become Queen of Canadian teens BY HEIDI RIEDNER


wo reigning Georgina princesses will put their best high-heeled foot forward in hopes of becoming queen by claiming Canada’s national teen pageant title. Keswick’s Christina Logan, 18, and Miranda Kennedy, 18, will compete against 80 contestants from across the country at the Miss Teen Canada World pageant in Toronto July 14 to 21. Perhaps sole survivor is a better term. Considering the gruelling week-long schedule and pageant requirements, the reality of today’s pageant world means it takes a lot more than a pretty smile to be the last one standing — albeit crying, usually with a too-big but sparkling crown perched precariously on top of coiffed hair and a blinged out sash proclaiming the new reigning embodiment of beauty, brains and advocacy. Ms Logan, an 18-year-old Huron Heights graduate, is the reigning Miss Teen GTA world, who dazzled judges with her poise, confidence and peaches-and-cream skin at the Sheraton Parkway Hotel Jan. 29 claiming top spot out of a field of 43 girls. Already a self-proclaimed princess and “girly-girl”, the talented 18-year-old has set her sights on being the queen of teens by becoming Canada’s next beauty and goodwill ambassador. “I’m excited and a little nervous, but also proud of being Miss Teen

GTA,” says Ms Logan. “It’s a good title, but I think Miss Teen Canada would sound even better,” she says with a perfect smile, even though she thinks it’s crooked. Blessed with naturally straight ash blond hair, green eyes and the complexion of a porcelain doll, Ms Logan often draws comparisons with Vampire Diaries star, and fellow Canadian, Nina Dobrev. She doesn’t mind the comparison, especially if it comes with Ms Dobrev’s recent accessory of late, fellow Diaries actor Ian Somerhalder, she says with a laugh. But she says contrary to the stereotype, pageants aren’t just about a pretty face and posing. “It’s definitely not as simple as it looks and all the girls have some serious stuff going on,” she says. “They are all smart, worldly, confident girls who can do many things and are very accomplished.” Think ballerinas with blackbelts, as well as top grade point averages and charitable endeavours. Having been a dancer all of her life, the eight cocktail dress, evening gown and swimsuit requirements shouldn’t pose any problems for the aspiring professional dancer, who will go to York University in the fall on a dance scholarship. But it is Ms Logan’s confidence, leadership skills and core values of charitable involvement, personal growth and spirit of competition that she will rely on most. “Being myself and natural is who I am. I will showcase myself to the best of my ability and show everyone my personality.”

Donned in their crowns and sashes, contestants will take in the sights and attractions of Toronto, engage in fundraising and leadership challenges and prepare for the big competition Saturday, July 21 at the Queen Elizabeth Theater at 8 p.m. hosted by Degrassi’s Luke Bilyk.

‘It’s definitely not as simple as it looks and all the girls have some serious stuff going on. They are all smart, worldly, confident girls who can do many things and are very accomplished.’ “These are not your typical beauty queens,” says Michelle Weswaldi, Director of Miss Teen Canada World on the pageant website. “Ninety-five per cent of the contestants have never entered a pageant before.” It was like that for Ms Kennedy, whose Miss Teen York Region title was her first experience in the pageant world, which qualified her for the national competition. Profiled by the Advocate in February, Ms Kennedy is an avid figure skater, singer and dancer who hopes to be a pediatric nurse and speaks about animal rights and cancer awareness as her platforms. Addressing the social respon-

sibility component of the contest, both women were required to fundraise individually for the international children’s charity, Free The Children, through local sponsors in their communities. Each contestant has her own blog as a requirement and is judged on her social media activity, including a daily MTC-W blog, self-produced video shorts featuring a look good feel good segment and one showing their hometown skyline, as well as a TV show pitch showcasing sponsors of the pageant. By checking out their videos and blogs, fellow Georgina residents can not only follow their hometown favourite, but also help their cause by “liking” their respective videos. With only moments to spare in between a fitting and a stop at the animal control centre Tuesday, Ms Kennedy was feeling a bit overwhelmed but excited at the same time. “There is a lot of stuff to do, but I am looking forward to the competition.” Ms Logan also looks forward to next week’s pageant, agreeing it is one of the hardest things she’s done so far, but adding it is also one of the most liberating and rewarding. She especially appreciates the opportunity to draw attention to her platform of bullying, being a former victim of bullying herself. “It changed my whole personality, but I made it through and fortunately it made me a stronger person in the end.” As Ms Logan grabs a handful

of dresses in her closest, complete with a glittering miniature disco ball every self-respecting diva in training should own, her mother Jackie comments on the surreal aspect of the pageant world and jokes her daughter finally has an outlet for her fascination with clothes.

‘I always say I only had one daughter because I got it right the first time. I’ve never met anyone who is as hard working, determined and deserving. I love her.’ “I knew we were charting new territory from the moment I saw a whole bunch of beauty queens on a Hippo double-decker bus”. But her mom tears up when she describes how blessed she feels that her only child is a daughter like Christina. “I can’t say enough how proud I am of how elegantly she carries herself and how eloquently she speaks,” she says. “I always say I only had one daughter because I got it right the first time. I’ve never met anyone who is as hard working, determined and deserving. I love her.” Support Georgina’s one-two punch on the national stage by visiting Ms Logan and Ms Kennedy’s respective links that you will find by visiting

damage, including smashed TVs, microwaves and kitchen appliances, said Mr. Redshaw. Two fire extinguishers were also discharged on the site and a hut and control box on the hill were damaged. Fourteen municipally owned vehicles in the nearby civic centre’s back parking lot were also vandalized, rendering them unable to be driven. Tires were slashed, windows smashed and wiper blades and antennas torn off, said Dan Murnaghan, manager of parks and facilities, adding the vehicles were towed to S&B Motors in Keswick. As of yesterday, an estimate for chalet damage and vehicle repairs wouldn’t be known for a few weeks. While he could not confirm if additional security measures to protect public property would be instituted, Mr. Murnaghan said town staff is looking in to safety and alarm protocols at the facilities. Two additional security cameras for the ROC had been approved under this year’s budget, but had not been installed as of Saturday, he added. The ROC was up and running Monday after town employees worked throughout the weekend, said Mr. Redshaw. As part of its continuing investi-

gation, police are examining if Saturday’s vandalism is related to at least four reported incidents of tires being slashed in June. “It is too early to say as the tire incidents seem to be spread all over town and none of them involved break and enters,” said Det. Sgt. Peter Heard. But he did confirm there has been a spike in mischief related incidents and “opportunity thefts” throughout the area. More than 30 thefts from vehicles have been reported for the month of June alone. Most occurred in Keswick in an area bordered by Ravenshoe Road and Boyers Sideroad and from Woodbine Avenue to Lake Simcoe. In most cases, the vehicles were reported to be unlocked and parked in driveways, with items stolen overnight. Money, pocket knives, GPSs, cell phones, laptops and tools were reported stolen. Keswick resident Cathy Clements had her vehicles ransacked in the middle of the night last month. “I found the doors to both our vehicles ajar in the morning,” she said. “The glove box of one vehicle was open and someone had rifled through it, probably looking for cash, cigarettes or GPS units.” While there was no obvious damage to either vehicle and nothing was missing, Ms Clements did report the incident to police.

“I contacted the police, just to let them know it had happened,” she said. If the culprits who went through her vehicles are teenagers, as she suspects, she thinks it would be a good idea for parents to be more vigilant regarding where their teens are going at night and for area residents to be aware of what is happening. “It is a good reminder to people to lock their cars and keep valu-

Citizens pay price for senseless vandalism at ROC


hey slashed tires. They smashed windows. They broke into our beautiful new ROC chalet and smashed TVs, kitchen equipment and shot white fire-extinguisher foam all over the place. In their wake, a group of thugs’ senseless tirade cost you and me $100,000 in damages. Every property owner in Georgina was vandalized last Friday night. Every one of us will bear the brunt of this senseless, disrespectful crime against something in which we all own and have a stake in its success. When dim-witted punks destroy public property, they fail to realize — because they’re stupid — that their goonish acts negatively impact everyone, including their own families, and it is all of us who share in the direct and indirect costs to clean up their mess. This latest crime against Georgina residents began in the early hours last Saturday when several suspects illegally entered the Recreation Outdoor Campus chalet at the foot of the toboggan hill and smashed TVs and vandalized its interior. That wasn’t enough. They left there and headed to the nearby staff vehicle parking lot and slashed tires on 14 publicowned trucks, smashed truck windows and tore off windshield wipers. It’s maddening and frustrating that one group of losers would care so little about their own community. It also raises the question of safety. The ROC sits quietly out on Civic Centre Road and anyone can venture onto the site and access equipment that might be dangerous without supervision or training, such as the zip line or rope course. Someone could seriously get hurt using these apparatuses without proper safety equipment and an

accident could cause serious injury. It’s the community that would pay the price for any physical damage, whether an injured person used the facility legally or not. This weekend’s crime is no isolated incident. We’ve had problems in other parks over the past several months, such as the April sexual assault at Bayview Park, the tree cutting and splash pad vandalism at W. J. Watson park and an increase in graffiti across the community. In this latest case of damage against public property, let’s hope someone saw something that might lead to the arrest of these thugs. There is good news. York Regional Police are in possession of high-quality video surveillance equipment. Hopefully, if the police release a video clip and we can post it on our website at yorkregion. com, someone will recognize a face, article of clothing, movement or gesture of one of these idiots that might lead to an arrest. While it shouldn’t be necessary, the town is obviously going to have to consider stepping up security at the ROC and other public facilities. That will mean additional expense for taxpayers, who will be footing the bill for any and all costs incurred to keep out delinquents. Our quiet, rural town is growing as nearly 50,000 people call Georgina home today. Residents have already requested lights in parks to deter illegal behaviour and to give families a sense of security and safety when venturing out after dark; something we should be able to do without feeling threatened. Residents will have to start being more vigilant and reporting suspicious behaviour to police: officers depend on citizens to let them know if trouble could be brewing. It’s a sad day but a reality check for Georgina. Let’s hope justice is swift.


Town taking smoke ban too far Re: Smoke ban takes effect Thanksgiving, June 28. I’m concerned the town is taking the smoking ban too far. I can imagine assaults and or violence coming to Georgina with this and I don’t think this was carefully thought by Mayor Rob Grossi and his disciples when implementing this ban. Just imagine someone lighting up on one of the beaches and another person interfering, thinking he is doing the right thing. I would not want to be a bylaw officer trying to give a ticket to some burly guy, either.

If our political representative spent more time doing what he was elected to do — serve his constituents — he shouldn’t need to send out virtually useless flyers that do nothing to enhance his image, although perhaps he thinks they do. All we seem to see of him is standing up in the House of Commons making excuses for his government’s shortfalls, of which there are many. One should not need to publicize oneself with moneywasting flyers that only clutter up the garbage and waste reams of paper.

up of special needs individuals ages 14 to 24 and the recreation group for 14 and up, of all abilities. The youth group meets once a month for a social dance and the rec group meets twice a month for a night of skills and sports. Nicole Dunphy of Community Living worked with the town and was able to arrange for the group to use the former Sutton Public School. Both programs have been well attended, with our largest recreation night of 31 participants and almost as many volunteers cheering them on. There have been several town recreation facilitators out to help run the program and they have been a wonderful example of energy, participation and fitness for our youth. I’m sure I can speak for all parents and caregivers when I say a heartfelt thank you to the town and, of course, to Ms Dunphy for helping make it possible.

Armed with a petition of 300 signatures, Mr. Sebo made a deputation Feb. 6 asking the town to carry the ball and dredge the river by this summer as a means to promote local tourism and continued economic well being and prosperity. “Dredging along a portion of Mossington’s wharf at the mouth of the Black River is urgently required to restore lake access and navigability,” said Mr. Sebo, speaking on behalf of businesses, homeowners, ratepayers, community associations and boaters. Stating it has been 10 years since the last time the town dredged the Black River, Mr. Sebo added maintenance is now required to ensure safe passage, not only for property owners along the river who pay premium taxes for lake access, but also for the local business and the tourist industry that rely on continued access for tourists. “It’s just brutal,” said Mr. Sebo, who was out in his boat on the river this past weekend and said it was so shallow, you pretty much hit bottom with any kind of wave action. “Depths are inadequate for safe boat passage even on the calmest of days,” he added. “If you try to

get through with a boat when it is rough, you are literally taking your life in your hands. Something very bad will happen if nothing is done to rectify the situation. It is just a matter of time.” The issue of dredging stems as far back as a 2003 staff report outlining similar concerns raised in Mr. Sebo’s February deputation. Town staff had been working on a report for council’s consideration prior to this year’s budget discussions investigating what other watershed communities have done to address similar issues, but dropped the matter when the original motion to add dredging to the budget was defeated back in April. Whether the municipality should pay for work that technically falls under the responsibility and jurisdiction of the Department of Fisheries and Oceans small craft harbours appears to be the major bone of contention. But Mr. Sebo insists a precedent has already been set by the dredging that occurred in 2002 and suggests questions regarding responsibility and sustainability may be addressed through some form of co-operative partnerships between various levels of government to establish a long-term solution.


Black River at Mossington Bridge along Hedge Road in Jackson’s Point. “It definitely needs to be done. Water levels now are barely up to your kneecaps at the mouth of the river,” Mr. Sebo said, adding how it gets paid for is up to council to decide. Mr. Sebo says if council does

discuss the matter and decide in favour of dredging, there would still be plenty of time to dredge in the fall. But if the matter is dropped for this year, Mr. Sebo says he, and many other business and home-

owners, will continue to press their cause with the town. “I’m not going away and neither are the 300+ people who wrote letters and signed a petition asking the town to dredge the mouth of the Black River.”

WILDLIFE: Fundraiser tonight at Sutton legion

Georgina to be home to wildlife rehab centre - one of only 12 in Ontario wildlife. We hope to be open soon and provide a much-needed service to our community,” said Pefferlaw resident Gail Lenters, who plans to operate the centre on her Routley Avenue property in Pefferlaw. She says many people have expressed support and are aware of the need of such a facility in Georgina. “We know that Georgina cares and many people have already been wonderfully supportive with their gifts and donations,” she said. “We hope as many people as pos-


A new wildlife rehabilitation centre in Pefferlaw would be one of only 12 such facilities in the province and it is looking for community support for its cause. A dinner and night of fun in support of Shades of Hope Wildlife Refuge takes place tonight at the Sutton legion beginning at 6 p.m. “We are a non-profit organization whose mission is to rehabilitate and release injured and orphaned

sible can join us for dinner and a night of fun and support our efforts because a successful event to me is one that is well attended and where everyone has fun and creates a good memory.” Ms Lenters recently passed natural resources ministry exams to be recognized as a certified wildlife custodian. She intends to construct an enclosed 22’ x 35’ area to house small animals, such as raccoons, rabbits, squirrels, possums, turtles and porcupines to nurse them back

to health before being released back to their natural habitat. As per ministry guidelines, the wildlife cared for are not considered pets and any interaction between wildlife and humans, or their domestic animals, is minimized so that animals being cared for do not become tame. The operation “is not intended as a visitor centre or educational facility,” said Velvet Ross, the town’s manager of planning. “It is intended purely as a rehabilitation centre for release back in to the wild.” Ms Lenters expressed concern regarding the hefty fee involved in processing the required zoning amendment application, which amounts to $6,328, when such funds could be utilized to assist in the establishment of the proposed

facility. Council agreed to waive the application fee for an amendment June 18 contingent on site approval from the MNR. “It is a desirable service in the community and I have no problem with it,” said Ward 3 Councillor Dave Szollosy, noting that while many “informal” places exist throughout Georgina, there is no sanctioned centre in the nearby area, with most residents having to travel to Haliburton to drop off sick, injured or orphaned wildlife. A site inspection by the MNR will be conducted in the coming months. The Lake Simcoe Region Conservation Authority (LSRCA) will also review the proposal at a cost of $400.

The prime movers behind the SPLASH Floating Water Festival are a group called Ladies of the Lake, so we decided to check them out. The Ladies of the Lake, a group of women whose goal is a healthy future for Lake Simcoe where people and nature are partners, was cofounded by Jane Meredith and Annabel Slaight in 2005. The idea for taking action for Lake Simcoe initially came when the co-founders joined a group of people for a paddle through Keswick up the Maskinonge River. When they went under the Woodbine bridge they got stuck on a carpet of thick green weeds. “Thanks to green slime dripping in great gobs from the paddles, the idea of Ladies of the Lake took shape,” says Annabel Slaight while discussing the creation of this renowned movement.

Swim it, drink it, fish it, love it

The women’s first project was to catch people’s attention and they certainly did that with a bold idea – a calendar featuring classy and naked women with Lake Simcoe as the setting. The calendar, dubbed The Naked Truth, was released in 2006 and another was done for 2009. Together they raised more than $450,000 to help the lake. And after this success, many more women joined the cause. “Ladies of the Lake activities are joyous. Ideas fly like crazy with so many women enthused, committed and ready to work,” Annabel Slaight stated. Thanks to the tremendous efforts and dedication of these caring women, many goals have been accomplished but they are still striving to find better ways to involve the community. The largest idea so far is the SPLASH Floating Water Festival, which, itself is part of a larger idea – it is the first step in making Lake Simcoe an internationally recognized centre for water innovation, research and learning. But one step at a time,

Weed harvesting, sidewalks Sutton Fair & Horse Show August 9, 10, 11 & 12, 2012 major summer projects By Heidi Riedner

New sidewalks and weed harvesting are two major projects slated for summer in Georgina. Changes were made this year to the town’s aquatic weed collection and removal program along the shores of Cook’s Bay since many residents in the Roches Point area were not provided the service last year, according to a staff report. Cost, dropped water levels and access points were three main problems identified why some residents were left out, since they were at the tail end of a service program started in the south end moving its way northward. But shoreline residents from all three areas will be serviced at the same time this year. Georgina Sod and Landscape was awarded the two-year contract, with a third year option, at a cost of $150,000 to carry out simultaneous removal in three zones in a shortened sevenweek program. • Zone A - Young’s Harbour in Keswick,

including the canals of Bruce and Canal streets, as well as shoreline from the canals to Glenwoods Avenue; • Zone B - Elmhurst Beach in Keswick, including shoreline from Glenwoods Avenue to the breakwall on the south side at the mouth of the Maskinonge River; and • Zone C - Windy Shore Park in north Keswick, including shoreline from the Maskinonge River north to Roches Point. Back on dry land, four new sidewalks on Ravenshoe Road, Morton Road, Metro Road and North Street will be built by Trisan Construction Ltd. Just under $380,000 has been allocated for the project, the bulk of which will be paid through gas tax revenue, with $24,000 in repairs being done to existing sidewalks and curbs coming out of the town’s operating budget.

Watermain break reason for Metro Road closure A minor watermain break in the Georgina affect local traffic last night and through this morning’s rush. All lanes were closed on Metro Road North between Lennox Avenue and Sheppard Avenue due to emergency watermain repairs that began last night. The watermain is owned by the town and repairs are ongoing. Motorists were advised to use Woodbine

Avenue as an alternate route. “It’s a big pot hole essentially that’s the size of the entire lane,” said Thomas MacPherson, the region’s program manager of road infrastructure management. Even though the break is minor, this work typically take one to two days to complete, he added. Residents along the closed stretch still have access to their homes to homes, he said, adding Metro Road North isn’t a heavily travelled road. — Tiffany Hsieh

We Are Dedicated to Helping You Solve Them

When I was in Junior High School, my father recommended that I take a typing course. I needed to learn proper keyboarding, he said. In his view, the birth of computers was just around the corner and I should prepare myself and embrace changing technologies. Of course, being the mid-eighties, our home computer was made by Texas Instruments and required pages upon pages of programming in order to make a ball bounce across the screen. Not very exciting at the time and almost laughably primitive now that we are surrounded by technology for work and play. I took my father’s advice and learned the skill of keyboarding; computers have become a major part of my worklife as it has for many others. However, it is one thing to know how to type on a computer and quite another to be able master programs such as Quickbooks bookkeeping software, create a Power Point presentation or understand the nuances of working with MS Excel spreadsheets. Wouldn’t it be fantastic if you could hire a private tutor for you, your business or your kids to learn valuable skills and understand software programs that employers are demanding and businesses require in todays competitive economy. “Understanding is the key,” says Terri ��� ���������������������������������� ��� ��� ���� ���� � �������� ������ ������ ��� ������������ � ���� ������� � �������� ������ � ���� ��� ����� � ������� ������ � �������� � ����������� � �������� � ����� ������� � ���� �� ��� ����� � ���������� � ��� ������ � ����������� � ���� ����� ��� ����� ���� ������� ������ ��������� ������� ��� �������� ���������� ������ ������� ��� ������������ ����������� ���� ��� ���� �� ��� ����� ���� �� ��� ��������

THE BIBLE PROMISES A WONDERFUL FUTURE “Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, neither has it entered into the heart of man, the things which God has prepared for them that love him”. (1 Corinthians 2:9) The wonderful future promised by God to those who love Him is outlined in His Holy Word – the Bible. This good news is called “the gospel of the Kingdom of God and the things concerning the Name of Jesus Christ”. It concerns your personal salvation – the salvation from eternal death. What a wonderful hope – a time when there will be “no more death”. Millions think they have an immortal soul now, which flicks off to heaven at death, but this is a sad delusion. The wonderful future for mankind God has promised is connected with this earth. The prophets declared: ”For the earth shall be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord, as the waters cover the sea”. (Habakkuk 2:14) Jesus affirmed this in his final message of the Bible: “thou has made us unto our God kings and priests, and we shall reign ON THE EARTH…and behold, I (Jesus) will come suddenly and my reward is with me to give to every man according as his work shall be”. Our wonderful future is also a time ultimately when “God shall wipe away all tears and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow or crying, neither any more pain, for the former things are passed away”. (Revelation 21:4) To learn more about the message of the Bible, please visit our exhibit at the:

On June 12, 2012 we lost a son, brother, nephew, cousin and grandson. He was a special person who did extremely well in school, loved his music, and loved watching hockey and baseball. We don't know how to begin when it comes to thanking everyone for the love and support that has been shown to our family during this difficult time. We truly have been overwhelmed with the effect Jason and his contagious smile had on everyone. We realized this by the hundreds of people who came to the visitation and his funeral. We knew Jason was a special boy however, we did not realize the impact that he had on so many people until this time. We have so many fond memories of Jason and now we have so many more through all of the stories we have heard since his passing. Thanks too many of Jason's friends who loved and watched over him for many years. We know he is watching over all of you now and smiling. Thanks to his band mates Jacob, Mitch, and Jakob for letting Jason be part of the band for so many years and writing the song in his memory. We will never forget any of you as you were a big part of Jason's life. Thanks to Connors Music, especially Joe for being a mentor, teacher and friend to Jason he loved going to the store and talking with everyone. We would like to thank M.W. Becker Funeral Home for all of their support through this difficult time. Kaitlynn helped us with all of the arrangements to make the visitation and funeral run smooth. We could not have done this without the support of our immediate families and our fantastic group of friends who continue to help us through the grieving process. We are truly thankful to everyone who attended the visitations and funeral service for Jason and we greatly appreciate all the stories, songs and memories that were shared by his friends and family during the service. We are sincerely grateful for the flowers, cards, donations and condolences. A special thank you to Dr. Musewe and the doctors and nurses at The Hospital for Sick Children for the care Jason received. He was in the best place in the world and we know they tried everything they could to help us spend more time with him. Thank you to the staff and students at W.J. Watson PS for all of their love and support. Especially, Kellie who has done so much for our family over the years. Thank you to the staff and students at Keswick High School for being so supportive and helping us through this time. We can't say enough about all of you and Jason is very proud watching over all of us. I am sure he loved the ball hockey game! Thank you for all of the money you raised for the charities and the bursary. We are extremely happy to know that his memory will live on through the bursary. We are saddened by our great loss but feel truly blessed to have the love and support of so many. Thumbs up, Smile, Enjoy a Ritz and watch the Senators win!
