‘Same old script’ from province on smelter site Years of public outcry, consultations through a liaison committee, provincial clean-up orders and finally a sit-down with the Environment Minister this week over the polluted Thane smelter site in Georgina failed to bring anything new to the table other than the same old “script”, according to Georgina Mayor Rob Grossi.

‘Council wrong, we were right’ BY HEIDI RIEDNER
Although it didn’t amount to much more than a “slap on the wrist”, confirmation the town breached the Municipal Act after a four-month investigation is good news for the public according to one Keswick resident. “It shows council we have our eyes open and are watch-
ing what it does,” said Kristina Toomey, who launched a twopronged investigation into closed meetings, procedure and code of conduct issues over the dropped defamation lawsuit against former leisure services director John McLean. “The results were pretty much a slap on the wrist, but they do prove a point. It means they were
wrong and we were right regarding our concerns and we’ll do it again if it happens again. They are supposed to be the experts in municipal law.” Investigators with Amberley Gavel Ltd. determined the town breached the Municipal Act at a Nov. 21 committee of the whole See page 4.

York Canada’s third highest home construction volume BY L.H. TIFFANY HSIEH
Workers in the automotive, construction and finance, insurance and real estate sectors have some of the better-paid and value-added jobs in York Region. “They are the key economic drivers in York Region,” said Michael Skelly, a senior planner with the region. According to the region’s annual employment survey released this month, these industries account for 86,000 jobs or 19 per cent of total employment in York. They are followed by the information and communications technology (ICT), life sciences and business and professional services sectors, which account for about 71,000 jobs in the region. Most jobs in these sectors are full-time positions that experience low unemployment and higherthan-average incomes, Mr. Skelly said. Depending on people’s interests, it’s a “good news story” for someone who lives in the region and wants to work in the region, added Paul Bottomley, York’s manager of growth management, economy and information research. “These are the fastest-growing
sectors in York Region and we want to see continued growth in these sectors,” he said. AUTOMOTIVE
2011 employment: 21,726 people Transportation equipment manufacturing: 43.7 per cent Motor vehicle and parts dealers: 29.8 per cent Repair and maintenance: 16.3 per cent Motor vehicle and parts wholesaler-distributors: 10.2 per cent Big players include Magna International Inc., Honda, BMW, Hyundai, Mazda, Suzuki and Volvo. More than 40 per cent of the total automotive sector employment base is located in Vaughan, with additional concentrations in Markham, Newmarket and Richmond Hill. Vaughan, Newmarket and Aurora collectively account for about 80 per cent of the region’s automotive sector manufacturing 2011 employment.
Heavy civil engineering construction: 16.7 per cent Big players include the Toronto Construction Association, the Construction Institute of Canada and Canada’s leading construction, development and property management firms. York is home to Canada’s third highest residential construction volume and fourth largest overall construction market. More than 350 firms involved in green construction and development are located within York. Nearly two thirds of the region’s employment in the construction sector is located within Vaughan, with 17 per cent in Markham. FINANCE, INSURANCE AND REAL ESTATE

ENVIRONMENT: Site cleanup not high on province’s priority list, ministry tells mayor, region
Owner should pay for cleanup, ministry says From Page 1
month was cancelled by the minister two days prior to it taking place. Describing the meeting as “cordial” during a verbal update to council Monday night, Mayor Grossi said it was the “same old script” coming from the ministry. While the Ministry denied any formal commitment to clean up the site, it suggested a renewed partnership with the town, an expansion of the liaison committee and going after the owner of the site for cost recovery. “They told us emphatically they don’t have the resources and they do not intend to rehabilitate that site as part of any future or current ministerial plans or orders,” said Mayor Grossi. He added ministerial staff were “quite adamant” there was no commitment in the past that would involve a total rehabilitation of the site and there is no super fund or resources available to the Ministry to deal with a site that is “not high on a priority list”. The mayor said he repeatedly reiterated during the meeting commitments made in the past to rehabilitate the site by both the premier and the minister, but the minister and his staff “had a script and they stayed with the script”. “They seem to think they have the ability to do something with respect to the ownership of that property,” added the mayor. The Ministry confirmed Tuesday it is currently reviewing various polluter-pay options, including requiring the owner to conduct additional monitoring of the “contaminated groundwater” leaving the site. “It was decided at (Monday’s)
meeting that legal counsel from the Ministry and the town will work together to find ways to compel the site owner to reimburse both the province and the Town of Georgina’s costs for the ongoing monitoring of the landfill, as well as other costs associated with the Thane site,” said Mark Rabbior, a spokesperson for the minister’s office. That includes approximately $800,000 owed in back taxes to the town, $300,000 for the town to fence and secure the area and well over $100,000 for a 2008 MOE assessment. Mr. Rabbior added the Ministry also plans to re-energize and expand the public liaison committee to include more members and to give it a renewed focus on finding a private-sector solution at the Thane site. But those suggestions didn’t generate much excitement from Ward 2 Councillor Phil Craig, who wondered if it wasn’t time to make a statement to the Ministry and withdraw from the liaison committee. “I have the feeling other members of the liaison committee are finding a great level of frustration with the time they have spent on this project and the ongoing circular running that we’re being asked to do,” said Councillor Craig. He also doubted the owner of the site could cough up the required money and that private sector options being suggested by the Ministry had already been examined by the committee. “I think the owner would take a long time to pay $5 million to rehabilitate the site and we have at the liaison committee looked at a number of private sector options and, so far, none of them have had
wings.” Councillor Craig insisted there is, in fact, a fund, there are monies available and there are polluted properties that are being rehabilitated year to year.
‘You mean to tell me they couldn’t each offer up $1.5 million to solve a serious threat to people living in Georgina? In the grand scheme of things, it’s not a lot of money.’ “There is money set aside to do that ... perhaps we are not in a swing riding like what happened down in Oakville,” said Councillor Craig in reference to the cancelled Oakville power plant. Considering the money involved in what some would call political “seat-saver” decisions, committee member Debbie Gordon is disappointed nothing more concrete generated from Monday’s meeting and no “olive branches” were extended. “You’ve got our mayor, the regional chair, and Environment Minister in a room with MOE staff,” she said. “You mean to tell me they couldn’t each offer up $1.5 million to solve a serious threat to people living in Georgina? In the grand scheme of things, it’s not a lot of money.” Ms Gordon’s thoughts were even more pointed in a letter penned by the Toronto law firm of Iler Campbell LLP on her behalf and Save the Maskinonge to Minister Bradley.
“Despite knowing that the site releases contaminants both on and off-site on an ongoing basis, for more than a decade, the MOE has not caused clean-up work to be done to protect the environment of the Town of Georgina,” the June 13 letter states. It also refers to a 1989 letter to the town in which the Minister states, “I confirm our intention to take action to clean up and restore the site in the event this becomes necessary,” regarding lack of an adequate financial guarantee and the extent of the facility’s then operational non-compliance. Citing private-sector options as not feasible, the June 13 letter states part of the reason a bio-remediation proposal failed to attract community support is “a serious mistrust of the MOE’s handling of this file after 40 years of failure to adequately address community concerns”. It asks for adequate financial assurance from the private sector for “potentially polluting activities” in future MOE approvals and an adequately funded clean-up program to identify and remediate historic contaminated sites, including the Thane smelter. “It’s all delay, delay, delay,” said Ms Gordon Tuesday, adding perhaps Georgina doesn’t have the same kind of “leverage” as some other communities. Councillor Craig is also concerned about the prospect of new issues stemming from the contaminated site. “The fact that the Ministry has undertaken dioxin testing would indicate to me that there is a concern ... I hope it proves to be the case there is no dioxin present, but if that was to happen, it would sig-
nificantly move the Thane site up the list.” “Those are your words,” said the mayor, adding no discussions as to what specific testing has been done on the site occurred during the meeting except for a continued commitment to contain leaching from the site. But a spokesperson from the Minister’s office confirmed testing for dioxins and furans was undertaken in July. “An analysis of those samples is still being done and the liaison committee will be notified of those results when they are completed,” said Kate Jordan, adding the additional testing for those two chemicals is part of continued monitoring and assessment of the site under the MOE. “If results do show confirmation, then we would expand our sampling.” But Mr. Rabbior stressed the Ministry has conducted extensive studies and reviewed monitoring reports over many years to assess conditions at the site. “Those assessments concluded there are no impacts to the Maskinonge River and there are limited off-site groundwater and surface water impacts to the adjacent landfill site owned by the Town of Georgina,” he said. He added the Region of York public health unit has advised that there is no significant threat to the drinking water of residents in the area. But that is something Ms Gordon characterizes as “wordsmithing” and not an effective control of future eventualities. “Are we waiting until the river is contaminated before something is done?”
Council’s ‘slap on wrist’ didn’t affect legality of outcome From Page 1
meeting with “a substantive decision in closed session”; one that was “couched in a direction to staff”, according to a report presented to council Monday night. “That was a breach of the Municipal Act, in our opinion,” according to investigators. During the closed meeting in November, staff provided a letter containing legal advice from the town’s solicitor, including but not limited to, a conclusion that litigation would be commenced, for review by the committee. Staff were directed to “follow legal advice” to initiate legal proceedings, which effectively were decisions that “exceeded a mere direction” even though the committee did not take a formal vote on the matter. While there is no clear direction or definition under the act regard-
ing “directions” to staff, investigators concluded the intention of the act is not that a substantive decision be “couched” in a direction to staff. The report goes on to say council, a committee or a local board are merely permitted to vote on a procedural matter or to give directions to staff, but not allowed to make substantive decisions “behind closed doors”. While no sanctions were outlined by Amberley Gavel, it recommended council and committees should be very diligent in ensuring the way a matter is handled in closed session and does not breach the Municipal Act. “More specifically, a council cannot make substantive decisions (even if they don’t vote on them) and then characterize the decision as a mere direction to staff or others when, indeed, it is not merely directional in nature,” the report states. “Committees have even less
KRISTINA TOOMEY: Resident who launched investigation says outcome a victory for citizens. authority to direct staff in either open or closed session.” But the breach of the Municipal Act was characterized as “either a procedural irregularity or (one that) did not affect the legality of coun-
cil’s ultimate decisions”. In addition, the town could have followed proper municipal procedure more accurately when citing the reasons for closed sessions on meeting agendas, but those “procedural inaccuracies” would not render any decisions made at those meetings illegal, the report concludes. “We do not think there was any intention of the town or of council to shield the overall matter from openness and transparency by assigning the broader, more ambiguous Municipal Act exception dealing with ‘personal matters’, even if it was not the more relevant or accurate exception,” the report states. For example, by the time discussions were continuing regarding the matter at a Dec. 12 meeting, a more accurate exception under the Municipal Act should have been applied rather than a “personal matter involving an identifiable individual” on meeting agendas.
While the matter started off as a “personal matter about an identifiable individual”, there were times when more information should have been provided to the public rather than just carrying over the “personal matter” from each agenda to the next until the final meeting in February 2012, the report states. Since a statement of claim had already been issued in the matter by the Dec. 12 meeting of council, the issue was now in the public domain and, therefore, could have been listed on the agenda as “Litigation; Section 239(2)(e); John McLean” to conform to the Municipal Act, according to the report. Although they were continuing to discuss a “personal matter” involving an identifiable individual, they were discussing the progress of litigation, according to investigators. — for the full story, go to yorkegion.com

Appalling how province is ignoring public input
angerous. Deliberate. Undermining. Scathing. Those are just a few choice words hurled at the province this past week after a report found it is blatantly ignoring our rights on important and possibly life-changing environmental decisions being made in our communities. Instead of seeing green on provincial eco initiatives — in which, apparently, we have little or no say — we should all be seeing red. “It astounds me to report on the degree of disregard and contempt that is shown to statutory requirements of the Environmental Bill of Rights,” Environmental Commissioner Gord Miller said last week when he released part one of his annual report, aptly entitled Losing Touch. Not only are the Ontario Liberals flouting our right to know about and comment on green matters, policies and initiatives paid for by the public purse, they are hiding significant decisions being made, says Mr. Miller, Ontario’s independent environmental advocate. As reported by YRMG last week, the worst culprit is the Natural Resources Ministry, which Mr. Miller calls a chronic offender that ignores requirements of the law and develops policies and programs without consulting the public. “Perhaps it is understandable that the ministries are no longer referred to as the civil service because there is nothing civil about the way citizens are often treated when they exercise their legislated right to file a request for investigation or review,” he said. Sadly, for many residents — especially those intrinsically involved in local environmental matters — this report likely comes as no big surprise. That’s because, along with ignoring our input and demands for change, another delinquent, the Environment Ministry, keeps us in the dark. Look no further than an aluminum dross
smelter on Warden Avenue in Georgina, which was certified — but virtually ignored — by the Environment Ministry more than 30 years ago. York Region politicians have been unsuccessful in getting Premier Dalton McGuinty to own up to his promise in 2003 to clean up the Thane smelter site. “This location is in a league of its own in this region in terms of its environmental degradation,” Regional Councillor John Taylor has said. The ministry confirmed yesterday, in fact, it doesn’t have the funds to assist with cleaning up chemicals such as copper, cadmium, zinc and ammonia that continue to move through the ground toward the Maskinonge River and, possibly, Lake Simcoe. It even goes as far as to deny any commitments the province made in the first place to rehabilitate the site that was under its watch for decades. Appalling, to say the least. We have simply, as citizens and communities, lost trust and faith in the province’s vow and mandate to protect us. Opposition parties say hiding information is typical of the Liberals and point to their current fight to get Queen’s Park to discuss recent decisions to cancel electrical generating stations in Oakville and Mississauga. “This government continues to keep Ontarians in the dark on the costs and benefits of legislation, and they don’t want people to know the negative aspects of some of these things,” Progressive Conservative critic Michael Harris said. Trampling on citizens’ rights and flouting laws that demand we have a say in matters is unacceptable, untrustworthy and contemptible. Immediate steps must be taken to ensure the public is aware of and understands any and all issues that affect our communities and the Liberals have to stop assuming they can run the show behind closed doors and under a veil of secrecy.
LETTERS TO THE EDITOR
No excuse not to ban youth from tan beds Re: Proposed youth ranning bed ban fires up teens, Sept. 20. The Society is renewing its calls for the province to support Bill 74, the Skin Cancer Prevention Act, which aims to restrict youth under 18 year of age from using indoor tanning equipment. In 2009, the world’s foremost authority in identifying the causes of cancer, the International Agency for Research on Cancer classified ultraviolet radiation (UVR) emitting devices, including tanning beds, as a known carcinogen proven to cause cancer. The skin damage caused by UVR is cumulative over a person’s life, meaning the earlier you start tanning, the greater your risk of developing skin cancer later in life. In July, an expert review of current research published in the British Medical Journal showed people who first started using indoor tanning equipment before the age of 35 have an 87-per-cent increased risk of melanoma skin cancer.
There is no excuse for the Ontario government not to pass Bill 74. In other parts of Canada, the governments of Quebec, Nova Scotia and British Columbia are all taking proactive steps to address this pressing issue by introducing legislation to restrict youth from indoor tanning salons. In August, the Town of Oakville became the first municipality to enact such legislation in Ontario. The indoor tanning industry continues to misrepresent its product to the public. No tan is a safe tan. Melanoma skin cancer is one of the most common forms of skin cancer in young Ontarians aged 15 to 29, and is one of the most preventable. Indoor tanning equipment can emit ultraviolet radiation at levels that are five times stronger than the mid-day summer sun. We know that voluntary guidelines do not work. The indoor tanning industry has proven incapable of regulating itself. Investigative reports by media and audits conducted by the Canadian Cancer Society and Public Health, show that those in the indoor tanning industry are not con-
sistently following Health Canada’s voluntary safety guidelines. We also know that parental consent does not work as many parents are introducing their kids to indoor tanning and paying for their tanning sessions. Regulating the indoor tanning industry will save lives and help reverse the rising cost of skin cancer on our already exhausted health care system. The Canadian Partnership Against Cancer estimates that the total economic burden of skin cancer in the country will rise to $922 million annually by 2032. We already have age-specific laws related to smoking, drinking, gambling and bike helmets. We need to take action now. I encourage residents to join the fight against skin cancer and send a letter to your MPP Julia Munro by visiting www.takeaction.cancer. ca or join the conversation on Twitter via #tanbedban.

COMMUNITY: Group meets to discuss issues of importance to Georgina citizens
Links panel opens community discussion BY TRACY KIBBLE

he Advocate continues in its quest to find new ways to connect more closely with our many readers who live in each of our unique communities that make up Georgina. As a community-minded business celebrating our 51st year deliering news and community events in Georgina, The Advocate wants to take the lead on an endeavour we hope will form strong bonds between residents in each corner of our diverse community as the town continues to grow. We are, once again, spearheading a 2012/13 Community Links Panel where residents have an opportunity to meet once a month to discuss how to build a better community by learning more about each other and the strides, achievement or obstacles people face in everyday life. For example, a growing number of ethnic residents are calling Georgina home but may feel they can’t connect to our community in any real way? If so, why? Are senior residents facing situations/ hardships/dilemmas that need to be addressed? How can we make a difference for them? Are youth enjoying and making full use of recreational activities available in Georgina or are we lacking something?
create debate about what we discuss with the rest of the community. Last year’s panel was a group of scrappy, inquisitive and intelligent people who held great conversations about our town and we want to do it again. We are looking for diversity in age, ethnicity, experience and outlook from people not affiliated with any group or organization. Just everyday citizens who really care about our town and want to get involved with how it can be better through discussions with others who feel the same way. Is our community a healthy, vibrant and inclusive place to live, work and play? Let’s find out. This partnership will be an excellent opportunity or venue for us to share information, compare experiences and offer ideas on how to ensure we at least try to reach out to everyone who calls Georgina home. If you are someone who can commit to a few hours each month for one year and are interested in being a contributing member of the Links panel, e-mail a letter outlining your background and why you feel you represent a voice in our community that should be heard. Include your name, e-mail address and daytime contact information so we may follow up with you.
Are jobs or employment opportunities in Georgina meeting demand or is there some way to make a change in this area and how can we do that?
Last year’s panel was a group of scrappy, inquisitive and intelligent people who held great conversations about our town and we want to do it again. These are the kinds of issues the Links panel will discuss via guest speakers, round-table discussions and maybe even a tour or two of each of our smaller communities/hamlets to get a feel for our entire town’s geographical and physical dynamics or setbacks. The panel is not a venue to tell The Advocate what stories or direction it should be going or needs to take and it is not a critique panel geared at the paper. It is about building a better Georgina, using the paper and social media to tell our stories, share our experiences and

Keswick Singer, Bernadette Connors releases new CD Keswick singer Bernadette Connors’ ground-breaking second CD release is about to hit the airwaves. Join her for the launch of the Harder to Satisfy CD release tour Saturday from 8:30 p.m. to 10 p.m. at Stephen Leacock Theatre. Ms Connors is a singer, songwriter and performer with a musical style that incorporates elements of pop, blues, rock, funk, jazz and a taste of folk. Since she has such a wide range of styles, her dynamic song writing features a dazzling mix of genres. At 19, she made it into the top 200 of the latest season of Canadian Idol, Season 6. She released her first indie album in 2009, Rocky Road, followed by an independent tour out west for the summer of 2009. She spent the following two years in a rock band, The Median, and released an EP called Play On in 2010. Her debut single, Rain, was released to commercial radio from coast to coast and featured on CKLR/The Eagle airing in Courtenay and Campbell River, B.C. and on Rock 95 in Barrie. The band disbanded in late

Keswick Uptown Business Association judges had a difficult time choosing the colouring contest winners for its annual Harvest Fest Family Fun Day held last Saturday. In first place is Sarah Peters, 8, of Keswick who received a Sutton pool pass, compliments of The Georgina recreation department. Second place winner is Keswick resident Gavin Morton, 8, who received a pass to the ROC. Each of these talented children were happy to have been chosen and thanked the Keswick Uptown Business Association for sponsoring this event.
W. J. Watson Public School student Robbie Haig takes time to relax with the help of a nurse as he continues round three of chemotherapy treatment at Sick Kids this week after being diagnosed with leukemia last month. Local groups and his school have helped raise money to assist the family. The Aurora Masonic Lodge No. 148 presented Robbie’s grandmother, Violet Haig, with a cheque and the Keswick Ladies Slow Pitch Team, staff at Harverys/Swiss Chalet and W. J. Watson have all helped with fundraising. “Robbie is dealing with the side affects of chemo. All his hair is gone, but he is a fighter,” Ms Haig said.

Cottage fire yesterday suspicious An early-morning fire in the Willow Beach area yesterday is still under investigation. Fire crews from both the Keswick and Sutton fire stations responded to a call around 2 a.m. yesterday. Upon arrival, crews found a vacant cottage on Kennedy Road fully engulfed, with flames shooting through the roof of the structure, confirmed Jeff Bignell of the Georgina Fire Department. The fire was contained within 30 minutes, with fire crews preventing the flames from spreading to neighbouring residences.
No injuries were reported at the scene. Damages to the almost century-old structure, which was not connected to hydro services at the time of the fire, are yet to be determined. Investigators were still on scene yesterday afternoon. While no official cause has been released, the fire is being looked at as suspicious at this point in time, confirmed Mr. Bignell. — Heidi Riedner
Sewage site forced on town, East Gwillimbury mayor says When it comes to the Upper York Sewage Solution project site, East Gwillimbury was voluntold. The dismay in the latest development of northern York Region’s new sewage treatment plant was rehashed by Mayor Virginia Hackson at Thursday’s regional council meeting. “We have not been asked — we’ve been told,” she said of the recommended site one kilometre north of Queensville Sideroad. Calling it “unfortunate”, Ms Hackson lamented the lack of detailed information related to the advanced technology proposed for treatment. While the proposed water reclamation centre will employ envi-
ronmentally sustainable wastewater purification and water recycling technologies, Ms Hackson said residents have been told sewage plants can change the quality of their lives. Several questions including chemical use, odour control, truck traffic and overflow measure remain unanswered, she said. “How does it fit with the Official Plan?” Ms Hackson questioned. “We are not convinced this is right for the community without the technology information.” All designs to do with the project will adhere to requirements by the Environment Ministry, York’s environmental services commissioner Erin Mahoney reassured council. — for the full story, see yorkregion.com / news/article/1507777

Region to hold public meeting on sewage plan York Region agreed to hold a public information forum in Georgina updating the status of the Upper York Sewage Solution after the municipality was, once again, left out of the loop in the latest round of sessions scheduled for next month. Responding to an e-mail regarding upcoming forums hosted by the region in Newmarket and Holland Landing next month regarding the water reclamation centre, Georgina Mayor Rob Grossi had to ask why no public forum was being held in his municipality if the outfall is going into Lake Simcoe. Town CAO Winanne Grant is working with regional staff for a public information session and a formal presentation to council next month. While the region was trying to accommodate council’s meeting schedule with respect to its choice
of dates, according to Ms Grant, an afternoon meeting for the public session didn’t cut it with Ward 2 Councillor Phil Craig. “It is an important issue and I think to hide it in the afternoon is not the right thing to do,” he said. He suggested an evening presentation to council and a second public session, also to be held in the evening, on another date. Mayor Grossi agreed. “Late afternoon doesn’t work for our constituents,” he said. Ward 3 Councillor Dave Szollosy also pointed out both the Holland Landing and Newmarket public forums were taking place in the evening beginning at 6:30 p.m., with presentations running from 7 to 9 p.m., and suggested the same accommodation be afforded Georgina residents. Ms Grant will apprise council when final meeting details have been confirmed with the region so the public can be notified.

COMMUNITY: Countdown for penny drive
Have a few coppertops to spare? BY HEIDI RIEDNER
ou have less than a week left if you want to drop off any 1-cent-coppertops to help benefit the Alzheimer Society. Often considered useless, the poor penny can provide a priceless benefit through the Alzheimer Society’s penny for your thoughts campaign. Cathy Loitsch of the Society’s Georgina satellite office says about $150 in rolled coins had been dropped off and she and two volunteers spent last Thursday afternoon rolling another $100 more. “We will be rolling more this week as the campaign winds down to its final day Sept. 30,” says Ms Loitsch, who expects to raise close to $500 by the time all is said, done and rolled. The society is dedicated to increasing awareness and raising funds for vital programs and services that support people living with Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias. According to the society, the disease is the most common form of dementia, which affects men and women of all races, religions and socioeconomic backgrounds. “It is not a normal part of aging and no one is immune,” says Ms Loitsch of the disease, adding it makes even the simplest of daily tasks, such as getting
If you have pennies to donate, drop by the office at 184 Simcoe Ave., Unit 4, in Keswick. New Wave Cafe on the Queensway South or 3 Sisters Boutique on High Street in Sutton are also drop-off sites. The campaign ends on Sept. 30, but Ms Loitsch says the office will still accept donations if people want to make a contribution. For more information, call the office at 905-476-5521. dressed or eating, impossible. Ms Loitsch is extremely grateful to everyone who collected and donated their pennies to the cause. “Every penny counts,” she says.
Tara Arthurs (left), a community social worker, and volunteer co-ordinator Cathy Loitsch of the Georgina satellite office of the Alzheimer Society York Region, rolled some coin, along with a whole lot of hope, for the Penny for Your Thoughts campaign last Thursday. With $250 “in the bank”, the pair hopes to reach a $500 goal by the time the campaign wraps up Sept. 30.

Putting Your Garden to Bed for the Winter With winter fast approaching it is time to say a sad farewell to your garden until next spring. Here are a few jobs to do that will help you to protect your plants from cold winter weather and give yourself a head start next spring. TREES AND SHRUBS The dead wood on trees and shrubs should be cut back during the fall. If this is done while there are still some leaves on the branches it will be easier to distinguish what needs pruning. Spread mulch at the base of your trees and shrubs to protect the roots, and if there is a chance that animals will gnaw at the bark, wrap the trunks with metal or plastic trellises or plastic tubes. Protect your trees and shrubs with burlap or geotextile wraps in November. If you want to transplant a tree, the best time for most species is when the leaves have started to change colour.
10th Anniversary Friday October 5th, 2012 1:00pm-4:30pm $5/ member & $8/ non-member
PERENNIALS AND ANNUALS Don’t be afraid to divide perennials or plant new varieties in the fall, depending on which hardiness zone you live in. The foliage of existing plants should be pruned and then the plants protected with a layer of mulch. Annuals will have to be brought inside in the fall if you want to keep them over the winter. This is also the time to take cuttings and collect the seeds of some of your favourite annuals for next spring. BULBS Many gardeners are never quite sure what to do with bulbs. In fact, some bulbs and tubers cannot be left in the garden over the winter and have to be lifted from the soil and stored inside in a dark, dry place until it is time to replant them. Fall is, however, the time to plant spring-flowering bulbs. Don’t hesitate to ask your local garden centre staff for suggestions and tips on which bulbs will need this kind of care.

SPORTS: Sylvia Tremblett’s name will remain with team for entire season
Blaze team to honour one of hardest-working volunteers BY JOHN CUDMORE
When the Georgina Minor Hockey Association lost one of its hardest working volunteers during the off-season it didn’t mean she would be forgotten any time soon. Sylvia Tremblett lost her battle with cancer at the age of 63 but to the players on the Blaze minor peewee AE team her name will remain with them this season. The team has emblazoned a memorial to the former president of organization on the backs of their set of blue jerseys in the location where typically a sponsors’ nameplate would be situated. The tribute — “In Memory of Sylvia Tremblett” — will skate into action with the team of 11-year-olds every time they don their blue jerseys. “We had a choice to get our own sponsor so we decided on her name,” said Blaze coach Jeremy Sedore,
who led the team to the OMHA atom final last season. “We had a parent meeting early in the summer and asked if everyone was on board with it. They seemed happy to have her name on the back of the sweaters.”
‘She was there every step of the way and always involved. It’ll be hard to find another volunteer like her.’ Sedore, 20, remembers Tremblett as a mainstay at local arenas during his own playing career. He said she took a particular interest in his team’s OMHA run last season. “Sylvia was always around the rink and tried to be at every game,” said Sedore. “She has been around ever
since I started playing, at least. She was there every step of the way and always involved. It’ll be hard to find another volunteer like her.” Tremblett was a long-time volunteer, inclouding president, in the Keswick Minor Hockey Association and later with the Georgina Minor Hockey Association, an amalgamation of minor hockey programs in Sutton and Keswick she helped forge. In addition to being an avid fan and supporter of the GMHA and playing an integral role in its creation, she served as its inaugural president starting in 2001 until moving to Newfoundland with her husband in 2006. When she returned to the community she again took on the role of president for two years in 2008 and later as its player development director. The team has dedicated its season to Tremblett. “It’s all for Sylvia this year,” said Sedore.
Players show off the “In memory of Sylvia Tremblett” jerseys to honour the long-time volunteer, inclouding president, in the Keswick Minor Hockey Association and later with the Georgina Minor Hockey Association.

Ways to lower car insurance rates at any age Drivers should look for more savings regardless of driver profile. Auto insurance is a major expense in a household budget. While itâ€™s mandatory to have insurance, overpaying is not necessary. There are simple ways of getting a more affordable auto insurance rate, regardless of age or driving experience. NEW DRIVERS Use of a â€˜good student discountâ€™ is one way to save on insurance for a young driver. Many insurance companies offer a discount for students who carry a minimum required grade average. Another way to save is by taking a driver education
course from an approved school; to learn the rules of the road. Be sure to inquire about these options, as they may not always be advertised. DRIVERS OVER 25 There may have been some improvement in yearly premiums for drivers with some driving experience. Donâ€™t forget to also ask about further discounts. These may include: installing a security system, driving an eco-friendly car, or installing safety features such as winter tires. If recently married, combine policies with your spouse and take advantage of bulk discounting by having more than one car insured with the company. EXPERIENCED DRIVERS An experienced driver with a good driving record may be eligible for better insurance rates; the key is to find the insurance company that will offer the lowest rate.
Shopping around for car insurance is the easiest way to find a better way. Other ways to save include changing your deductible â€“ perhaps carrying a higher deductible; or, combining home and auto insurance policies with the same insurance company. DRIVERS OVER 55 YEARS Mature drivers over 55 years old may qualify for some of the best rates available. Some insurance companies across Canada specialize in getting the best rates for mature drivers. There are also retirement benefits to keep in mind: no commute distance may mean a lower rate. Make sure the insurance company changes the commuting status to pleasure use. MORE TIPS Remember to review your policy frequently. Tickets come off your driving record in three years from the date that you are convicted and accidents come off
in six years. If a ticket or accident has come off your driving record, check with your insurance company to make sure youâ€™re not still paying for that ticket or accident. If you drive an older car, you may want to remove the collision coverage if you feel that itâ€™s not worth the extra yearly cost to compensate you for your vehicle value. This will reduce your insurance premium. Many car insurance companies may actually offer a lower rate to drivers who pay their premium in full on renewal than to those who choose to pay in installments. Monthly payments often come with fees that are charged on each installment. Paying the whole thing up front is a quick and simple way to pay less. No matter how old you are, it is always a good idea to shop around for a better rate. Quoting sites like ComparaSave.com help drivers find the lowest insurance rate available within their network of over 30 insurance companies.

IN GOD WE TRUST A recent article in “Israel Today” magazine reported information of a survey conducted in Israel asking the question of who they should look to for help from their enemies. A solid majority answered “they are looking to God, and God-fearing allies” to bring deliverance. Centuries ago, Israel was admonished by God not to go down to Egypt for help, or rely on horses, or in the multitude of their chariots and in the great strength of their horsemen, but to look to the Holy One of Israel, their God, for help in time of need (Isaiah 31:1). It seems modern Israel is heeding again that warning. How important for us also, as Christians, to look to God for help in times of need. The Psalmist tells us to “put not your trust in princes, nor in the son of man, in whom there is no help. His breath goes forth, he returns to the earth; in that day his thoughts perish. Happy is he that has the God of Jacob for his help, whose hope is in the Lord His God, which made heaven and earth, the sea and all therein.” Psalm 146: 3-6. The founding fathers of both Canada and United States of America were not ashamed of their faith in God and publicly stated: “In God we trust”. Read and study your Bible to learn more of why you should trust in God. Enrol in our free Bible Correspondence Course and familiarize yourself with the message of the Bible – God’s plan of salvation for all mankind.
