Students protested changes made to the Ontario education system in front of St. Mother Teresa High School on Thurs., April 4. Charlie Senack photo

Local students walk out to protest Ontario education changes By Charlie Senack and Keenan Smith-Soro As the clock struck 1:15 p.m. on the afternoon of April 4, more than 200,000 Ontario high schools students — including students from Barrhaven — walked out of class in protest of changes coming to the province’s education system. A few hundred students from both Longfields Davidson Heights High School and St. Mother Teresa High School took part in the walkout movement, and eventually joined together to make an even bigger impact. The “Students Say No” website stated that St. Joseph High School and Cedarview Middle School also took part. “We’re mainly protesting a lot of recent decisions made by the Ford government,” said 16-year-old Nicholas Reid. “As far as education goes, there has been a lot of cuts to funding from several programs, especially special ed programs, as well as increasing class sizes.” Under new changes which are slated to take place at the start of the September 2019 school year, students will see a new “fundamental” math curriculum, mandatory online e-learning courses, reversing back to the former 1998 physical health and safety cur-

riculum, banning use of cellphones in class and increasing the number of students in each class. It’s those changes that students at Mother Teresa are against. Grade 10 students Noah Anaya and Olivia Stoyles were the main organizers for the protest at their school because they are concerned about the future of where the education system is

going. “I think it’s more about affecting the future,” said Stoyles. “It may not affect me but I have three younger sisters and this will for sure affect them if this is implemented.” Anaya, 16, is concerned about the possible cuts coming to elective courses including the arts, drama, music and woodshop classes.

THE SCHOOL SCOOP

Half Moon Bay Public School

The Me to We club at Half Moon Bay Public School is busy making a list of items to include in boxes they are making for The Northern Birthday Box Project. The project originally started by a group of women over Facebook, matches donors with families who have children living in remote communities in Canada where staples for birthday celebrations are prohibitively expensive for families to buy. “The students are working together to decide what to put in the box,” said Catherine Finn, who teaches grades 5 and 6 at Half Moon Bay Public School. “They have a budget of $100 per box (and) we will be preparing four boxes,” she added. Catherine says the Me to We club at Half Moon Bay has about 50 grade 4 to 6 students who are involved. Other initiatives the club has taken part in include a toy drive and cupcakes for kindness — where every student in the school purchased a cupcake for a $2 donation, and then put on a charity lunch for the Half Moon Bay staff. The group’s next initiative is global in nature and related to water security — where students are learning that not everyone in the world has access to clean drinking water. Best of luck to the students on their initiatives!

Cedarview Middle School

There has been no shortage of things going on at Cedarview Middle School this week. On top of all the unique projects going on inside the classroom, learning was taking place outside of the classroom as well. Wednesday, April 10, saw the unveiling of the schools “mini-museum”, which shares notable people’s stories of dealing with sexual and gender diversity. It opened on the Day of Pink, an annual event that is held during the second week of April as a way to stop bullying. A group of students from the school also attended the Ontario Elementary Curling Championships in Gananoque, where teams Melo and Brien improved their skills with every game they played. Congratulations also goes out to the Cedarview girls hockey team! The season came to an end on April 4, with the Hawks having another accomplished year on centre ice. The accomplishments of both groups were echoed by the families in the stands who cheered them on. Congrats to both teams on their accomplishments!

Wild parsnip is an inva-

Think of the multitude of facets in your life. Among them, there are many things you are willing to compromise on, but some things are non-negotiable. Healthcare and Relationships are two things most are unwilling to gamble with and they go hand-in-hand in the hearing healthcare field. With studies now showing links between untreated hearing loss and memory, cognition, falls, social engagement, annual earnings and depression, not to mention its impact on your relationships, you will want to be proactive with even the slightest hearing loss…and you will want to be smart about it too. Because hearing loss is highly individualized, you will want a solution tailored to you and your needs, not a one-size-fits-all program. Finding that right solution is not a simple process. To be successful, you will want the assessments to be detailed, the selection unlimited and the flexibility maximized. The good news is that today’s many Manufacturers offer a great variety of solutions to meet

sive plant that is increasingly common within the City of Ottawa in areas of uncultivated land, roadside ditches, nature trails, as well as on and surrounding rural and residential properties. Wild parsnip may pose a health risk to humans. The plant sap contains chemicals that may cause skin and eye irritation and make the skin prone to burning and blistering when exposed to the sun. While the Public Works and Environmental Services Department has been proactively mapping out and controlling wild parsnip growth on public property, By-law & Regulatory Services would like to remind residents that they are responsible for removing invasive weeds on their private properties. In accordance with the Property Maintenance By-law, the owner or occupant of a residential property must clear the lands of heavy undergrowth, long grass and/ or weeds so that it is consistent with the surrounding environment. Section 3(4) of the

all of the varying hearing needs, so finding what is best for you is possible. The key is to consult a clinician that can prescribe based on your unique needs rather than be limited by the employer’s pre-determined product port-folio. Offering just that is Hearing Freedom, a locally owned, grown, and operated clinic. Their grassroots approach is unfortunately very rare in today’s market where retail settings, larger clinics and Manufacturer owned chains dominate. The unique and refreshing approach that sets Hearing Freedom apart from other providers was established nearly 20 years ago when Rosanne McNamee, Doctor of Audiology, decided to do it her way. After interviewing for employment at many local clinics, she was disheartened to discover that the focus was always on sale targets and the company’s affiliation to certain Manufacturers. “That was not my idea of proper hearing health care,” says McNamee. “I came into this profession to improve my patients’ quality of life. To do so I need to consider everything available for each and every

By-law also requires yards be clean and free from objects or conditions that may create a health or accident hazard. If a property owner fails to comply with an order to remove wild parsnip, the City is able to contract out the work at the expense of the property owner. In addition, the Ontario Weeds Act requires residents to destroy any noxious weeds, including wild parsnip growing on their properties.

Since the 25th of March there have been several reported cocaine overdose occurrences across Ottawa resulting in two deaths and three critical injuries. The Ottawa Overdose Prevention and Response Task Force (Task Force) is issuing an alert to warn residents about an increase in suspected overdose-related deaths and injury in Ottawa. Based on preliminary testing, it is suspected that cocaine cut with fentanyl may have been a contributing factor. Ongoing investigations and toxicology laboratory testing are being conducted to confirm the source of these overdoses. The 2017 Good Samaritan Drug Act (Bill C-224) that exempts persons from drug possession and breach of probation charges when seeking medical or police assistance during an in-progress overdose, both the person experiencing the overdose and any persons at the scene. This law is designed to encourage citizens to call for help so we can focus on saving

patient. I must do so with their particular needs and wants in mind. Compromising on hearing healthcare is not an option for me. Every single patient deserves the best, and that “best” is different from one person to the next. What works for one will not work for another. Blanket solutions just don’t cut it.” And so she decided to set up her own business, doing it her way and putting patients first. At Hearing Freedom, there are no predetermined products or plans. Each and every patient’s intervention plan is as unique as they are. The experience begins with a thorough assessment which is followed by a detailed needs assessment. Throughout, the patient’s opinions and concerns are held paramount. “We devote all the time necessary to help our patients navigate this complex hearing healthcare terrain. We want to ensure our patients’ hearing needs are met.” explains McNamee, “We offer a 90day trial period on all hearing aids. This extensive trial gives patients the confidence that they have chosen the right solution for them, their

lives. It is important that our investigators have the cooperation from the involved parties so we can get to the source of the contaminated/lethal drugs. Call 911 in cases of a suspected overdose. If you wish to remain anonymous, please contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-2228477. Information to assist in a drug investigation is imperative.

The Gatineau Police Service and Ottawa Police Service’s Selective Traffic Enforcement Program (STEP) will focus on unsafe vehicles and heavy trucks and cycling safety during the month of April. Unsafe Vehicles and Heavy Trucks: Between 2013 and 2017, there were 4,062 collisions involving unsafe vehicles resulting in 722 injuries and 18 deaths. Cycling Safety: Between 2013 and 2017, there were 1,460 collisions involving cyclists with 1,281 injuries and 8 fatalities.

lifestyle and hearing needs.” In addition, there are no Hearing Instrument Practitioners or Hearing Instrument Specialists at Hearing Freedom. Patients are rather seen by University trained and Professionally Regulated Audiologists, qualified to service both children and adults, whether they are private pay or third party supported (WCB, VAC, etc). “Not only is hearing complex, so are today’s hearing aids,” McNamee explains. “Dealing with the most qualified health care professional, in the most independent setting, is crucial.” At Hearing Freedom you can be certain that you have chosen the best place to trust with your hearing needs.

Student continues from page 2 As a member of the LGBTQ+ community, he’s also concerned that things such as gender identity will not be taught under the new changes coming to the physical health and safety curriculum — more commonly known as sex-ed. “Being part of the LGBTQ+ community, it’s hard to think of kids who won’t be able to learn that and will be so confused in the future,” he said. The other big concern is how larger class sizes will impact both the teachers and students. Grade 4 to 8 classes will now see the number of

students rise from 23 to 24 in a classroom, and grade 9 to 12 classes will see the most significant jump from 22 to 28 students. “It seems kind of hard for the teachers to handle and tend to so many kids at the same time,” said grade 11 Mother Teresa High School Student, Michael Taylor. “A lot of people are on individual learning plans (and) everyone learns differently, so it seems like it’ll be hard to manage those classes.” By cutting 3,475 educator jobs by the 2022-2023 school year, the Ford government says they will save

taxpayers one billion dollars. But Stoyles says it’s important to invest in education, and feels it’s the students who will feel the impacts in the end. “I think the size that we are at right now is perfect,” she said. “At 20 kids in a class, every kid is getting the one on one time that they need. If we up that to 30 or 35 students, the kids aren’t going to be hurt by their teachers.” The other concern that came up during Thursday’s walkout was changes coming to the OSAP system. Anaya says he comes from a low in-

BARRHAVEN INDEPENDENT

The IndependentCOMMUNITY Good year for Independent at provincial newspaper awards gala VAUGHAN -- It was another solid year for the Barrhaven Independent at the Ontario Community Newspaper Association’s annual gala. The Independent came home with four awards from the 2018 Ontario Better Newspapers Competition Fri. April 5. They came home with more hardware than any other community newspaper in Eastern Ontario. “We have tremendous engagement with our readers in Barrhaven,” Editor and Publisher Jeff Morris said. “We have a tremendous staff with Mike Carroccetto giving us world class photography and with Charlie Senack turning into an excellent reporter. We have a lot of contributors who submit story ideas, photos and columns. Our success is entirely a reflection on the support we receive from the community.” The Independent placed first in the Best Sports Story category for a piece entitled, ‘Hey Ref, You Suck!’ The story looked at the growing abuse that officials take in various youth sports at the local and amateur levels and was triggered by an incident in Cumberland where a teenage football player and his father assaulted an official in the parking lot after a playoff game. The story provided indepth inter-

views with officials, as well as executive members of various youth sports organizations. St. Albert Gazette (Alberta) Editor April Hudson called the story a “very well-written piece by Jeff Morris about an important local issue. This piece has broader appeal as well, since it addresses something that is fairly systemic across many types of sports. Props for welldone interviews, a good lede, and citing specific examples.” The Independent also placed second in the Best Arts and Entertainment Story Award for a piece on St. Mother Teresa High School student Rob Kemp, who made the decision to give up playing high school football to take the lead role in his school’s Cappies play. Kemp, who is now a student at Carleton University, won the Cappies Award for Best Male Actor for his portrayal of Ebenezer Scrooge in the Dickens’ classic, A Christmas Carol. The story detailed his love for theatre and for theatrical make up, and how he was able to stay involved in football by volunteering as a Nepean Eagles Tyke assistant coach since he was unable to play. The Independent won a pair of awards for its ‘From the Other Side’ column, written by Morris and

appearing in each issue on the Independent’s editorial page. Morris placed second in the province for Best Humour Columnist, and third in Ontario for Best Columnist. “It’s rewarding to be honoured by our peers,” Morris said. “But most of all, we are thankful and humbled for all of the businesses who support us with advertising to keep our community newspaper alive, and we thank all of our readers who read us in print, online, and follow us on Facebook.”

The wasted days of winter So the students in Barrhaven have had their protest over the proposed education changes in Ontario. As a Barrhaven parent, here is my protest. What is with the snow days? There are two different things at play here which, as an old school parent, I find unacceptable. First of all, who makes the call on what or when a snow day happened, and how can they be so consistently off. Go back a couple of Mondays. April 8th, to be exact. The kids woke up to find out that buses were cancelled. There was a threat of freezing rain. Predictably, the roads were fine. Perhaps the judgement call, which has to be made by 5 a.m., was based on a weather forecast that wasn’t quite right. So, sure enough, the next day has nasty weather and snow squalls and slippery roads that turned Ottawa into a big 7-11 Slurpee. By 3 p.m., CFRA was reporting that there were more than 100 accidents in Ottawa. In case you are keeping score, the buses were running. Huh? That inconsistency has been a trend throughout this elongated winter, and it was a trend last winter as well. But that’s only part of the problem. The second one is the one that really sticks in me like a little straw in a CapriSun juice box. At what point did our education system turn buses are cancelled into school is cancelled? For goodness sake, we are in Barrhaven. Nobody is far from their school, and nobody in Barrhaven can’t get there. “There’s no point in going because nobody else goes,” the kids will say. “The teachers don’t do anything. They just put a movie on. It’s a waste of time.” When did that become the case? Was this a Mike Harris thing? Was it a Dalton McGuinty thing? Or was this one on the parents for force feeding a steady diet of Barney and the Teletubbies to the young minds of our children? I bet Dora goes to school when it snows. And Paw Patrol probably does, too. But really, shame on the entire system for allowing a snow day to erode into a wasted day. I went to a rural, small town high school and when the buses were cancelled, school went on. It was a chance to get caught up or get extra help. Maybe there was extra time in the gym or in the music room. But if you could make it to school, you went. And are you telling me that kids in Barrhaven couldn’t make it to school last Monday? I wonder if the students would have showed up to protest if the buses were cancelled that day? JM BARRHAVEN

Funding for Phase 2 of LRT included in provincial budget By Charlie Senack

Phase 2 of Ottawa’s light rail plan has cleared another hurdle for local commuters. Ontario Finance Minister Minister Vic Fedeli layed out the first Ford conservative budget last week. In it are many things that will benefit Ottawa including funding for Phase 2 LRT, the guns and gangs unit and the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario. Out all of the things mentioned in the nearly 400-page document, the biggest impact to Barrhaven residents was the confirmation of $1.2 billion for Phase 2 LRT. With shovels expected in the ground sometime this year, Phase 2 will extend the Trillium Line out to Limebank Road in Riverside South. From there, Barrhaven commuters will be able to hop on buses that will go over the Vimy Memorial Bridge. Premier Doug Ford was in Ottawa to announce the funding last month, but Mayor Jim Watson is pleased to see the numbers confirmed on paper.

“The City of Ottawa is delighted that the Province announced on March 22 its commitment to provide $1.208 billion to build Ottawa’s Stage 2 LRT — making it possible for the largest infrastructure project in the City’s history to proceed,” Watson said in a statement. “This is good news as we are preparing for our next phase of LRT to meet the growing demand for transit in Barrhaven, Kanata and Stittsville,” he added For Community and Social Services Minister and longtime Nepean MPP Lisa MacLeod, the budget laid out good support for Ontario’s children and the most vulnerable population. “To best support low income and minimum wage earning Ontarians, our government created the LIFT credit for 1.1 million people by proving up to $850 million in relief,” MacLeod said in a post on Twitter. “For families we are providing the CARE tax credit that will cover up to 75 per

cent of eligible childcare costs,” the minister added. “For low income seniors we will invest $90 million in dental care.” The budget comes at the same time changes are coming to Ontario’s autism funding system. MacLeod’s Ministry — which also covers the autism portfolio — announced last month that families with autistic children up to the age of six up will receive $20,000 a year for support, while children age seven or more will be eligible until they turn 18 for $5,000 a year. But the problem is the extensive therapy the children need can cost parents up to $100,000 dollars a year. The changes to the government funding led to multiple protests taking place at constituency offices across the province and on the front lawn of Queens Park; but because of all the public backlash, the government pushed back some of its changes to consult the public. During Question Period on March 27, MacLeod said

VIONIC NOW AVAILABLE

that starting next month, Ontarians can participate in an online survey, as well as a few telephone town hall consultations, to give their feedback and suggestions on the province’s autism overhaul. Some MPPs are also considering hosting round table discussions with parents of children with autism and advocacy groups. “We have heard from parents and we want to take the time to listen very carefully to their best advice on a needsbased system,” MacLeod said during Question Period on March 27. The budget also stated that the province would double their investment in autism to over $600 million. Children who were receiving government-funded therapy was slated to have their services cut at the start of the month, but MacLeod has extended their therapy by six months. By then she hopes a new needs-based program will be in effect. The budget also included a one-time commitment of

Progressive Conservative Ministers Lisa MacLeod and Vic Fedeli were all smiles as the Ontario Budget was released last week. $2 million for Ottawa’s guns and gangs unit, and funding for local hospitals including CHEO’s treatment centre and planning for the new Civic Campus of the Ottawa Hospital. MacLeod has been a longtime champion of the children’s hospital, and has been

fighting for more support. The government has promised to give them $2 million to help with their work — which includes supporting children with developmental disabilities. The government plans to have a balanced budget by 2023.

Lent and Easter celebrations have varied through the centuries Lent is the season observed in the early spring by Christian churches. It begins on Ash Wednesday, 40 days before Easter excluding Sundays, and ends on Easter Sunday. The term “lent” comes from the old English word lecten, which meant springtime, the word commonly used in church liturgy is Quadragesima. Lent is part of the religious church year of Eastern Orthodox, Roman Catholic

THis week,

THIS MONTH by Larry Ellis

and Protestant churches with many special services or meetings. The season of Lent originated as one of spiritual preparation for Easter in remembrance of the pas-

sion, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. The length of time for observing Lent varied through years; however the Nicene Council, in AD325, set the period at 40 days to be observed on a Sunday between March 22 and April 25 and varies each year based on the full moon. Easter is celebrated in various ways in different countries in the world. In France church bells do not ring from Good Friday to

Easter Sunday. In some parts of Germany, eggs are coloured green for good luck and carried by people to church on Maundy Thursday. In Jerusalem the bishops and priests, representing the 12 disciples take part in a public foot washing ceremony and in Romania on Easter Eve, churchgoers carry lighted candles home after midnight mass. This is the time of the year when anyone who

will look and listen can’t avoid the fact that something is happening around us. Spring is not really a lesson; nature is not in the teaching business, nature is change and growth and all kinds of life going its own way, grass grows, trees flourish, birds nest and animals give birth. Do you know what else happens in springtime – why love is in the air, everywhere, look for it, you’ll find it!

Try and fill your life with pleasant things, the kind of peace that comes from daily living; the love of nature, watching each phase from spring’s shy dawn right through to the cold, wintry days. Friendships increase through the years, new ones are made and old ones cultivated. Share the hopes and fears of others, be happy for someone’s triumphs and feel the pain of another’s trouble or problem.

Delays continue for Borrisokane expansion and Greenbank realignment By Keenan P. Smith-Soro Greenbank realignment and Borrisokane expansion continues to be delayed as a result of funding and Strandherd safety issues according to Barrhaven Councillor, Jan Harder. Borrisokane is a lengthy, two lane road off of Strandherd across from the Royal Oak which also runs over the Jock River and connects to Cambrian, allowing for residents of both Stonebridge and Halfmoon Bay what should be easy access to Strandherd. In fact, according to Harder there are approximately 7,000 cars that come through Borrisokane every day. Once again, Borrisokane is a two-lane road. “Logically with the huge growth in Barrhaven south of the Jock River, the Greenbank realignment was to take place and start in 2016,” said Harder. “It is basically funded through development charges and back in 2015 and 2016 the accumulation of them died off, so all those growth-related projects were delayed, including the

Greenbank realignment.” While this has been on factor attributed to the delay of the growth-related projects, there was also the issue of safety on Strandherd. “Strandherd, which was not originally ahead of the Greenbank realignment, became a bigger priority due to safety issues,” said Harder. “Because, obviously if you know Barrhaven you know that it has a via-track crossing, so there we have to put in an over pass.” The via-tracks weren’t necessarily the only reason for higher safety measures to be taken, but they are simultaneously the reason why the cost is so high to make changes to roads in Barrhaven. “Its going to cost more money than your average grate separation,” said Harder. “But in addition to that, every major road we have crosses via tracks, so therefore, every one of the projects from Barrhaven is grossly higher in cost than it is in Kanata or Orleans” As of now, Harder believes the primary situation

is poor transportation options out of both Halfmoon Bay and Stonebridge. While it has reportedly gotten better in Stonebridge, it still remains an issue. Especially considering the growth of the area. According to Harder, the last federal census showed Barrhaven was the number one representing 39 per cent of growth for the entire city of Ottawa. While 31 per cent of that was south of the Jock River. Despite the problems with Borrisokane, it makes up one of many issues that are currently present in the area. At the moment, Greenbank and the Barnsdale interchange at the 416, are Harder’s first priorities. “Once you do that the 416 in particular at Barnsdale, the Borrisokane condition, which is carrying a tremendous amount of traffic needs to be updated as well,” said Harder Though there seems to be a myriad of factors that contribute to the delays in projects, there is a potential solution. “That’s something I’m

Harder strongly emphasized that it is something that has occurred before and in her own words, “ is something we need to do.”

The passion for golf and community lives on at Manderley

The most important shot in golf is your next one. With that in mind, Pierre Fortin of Le Groupe Fortin, has purchased of Manderley Golf Club and is looking forward to providing an improved and enhanced experience for local golfers. Fortin has been working hard on proposed upgrades as opening day approaches. The clubhouse has undergone a renovation, and staff is preparing to have the 27hole course in top shape by the opening of the season, which is just around the corner. “First of all we are going to put a bit of lipstick on, try to revamp the clubhouse,” said Fortin. “The Fernes (brothers Ernie and Don, previous owners of Manderley) have done a phenomenal job. The idea is to take the Olympic torch and run with it.” However, his first order of business is to make the club more inviting for weddings, parties and corporate events. Fortin says that golf pricing will remain the

same. And so will most of the staff. Andrew Robertson (GM) and Jillian Ferne (food and beverage manager) are back, and preparing for opening day, which should happen sometime within the next week or two. Manderley Golf is the third golf course purchased by Fortin. He bought Tecumseh Golf (in Gatineau) in 2014 and Mont Cascades Golf Course in 2016. Fortin was the Quebec juvenile champion in 1995. In 1996, Fortin came in second place at the Quebec junior held at Chateau Cartier and Royal Ottawa. Local golfer Lee Curry won the championship year. Fortin, who is still close to a scratch golfer, is also good friends with Manotick’s Brad Fritsch. In the late 90’s, Fortin and Fritsch both qualified for the world university championship. Fritsch lives in North Carolina and currently competing on the Web.com Tour. “We are extremely excited to be passing on Manderley to someone we know

has the passion for golf and has the desire to make Manderley a special place for all golfers to enjoy,” said Don Ferne. The Ferne family teamed up to buy the golf course in 1983. “While our primary focus has always been golf, it certainly has not been our primary purpose,” said Ernie Ferne. “It’s all about the relationships we’ve been able to form over the years with people in the community. Golf is a people business.” Manderley GM Andrew Robertson is also the head pro at the club. He is excited about the transition, and added the Fortin Group is a perfect fit at Manderley. “We are part of a bigger group now, and there are a lot of advantages to that,” Robertson said. “We will have more resources at our disposal when they are needed. The entire focus has been on adding to the experience for our golfers.” Robertson said that the course will remain a 27-hole course and that no major

changes will be made. However, he did say that being a part of the Fortin Group gives Manderley access to some equipment they did not previously have, which will ensure the course is in top shape. Members will also have opportunities to play at Fortin’s other courses. “While nothing really changes on our course for our golfers, being a part of the Fortin Group opens the doors for our members to play at the other courses as part of their membership fees,” Robertson said. “It just gives our members options and access to different positive golf experiences.” Part of the transition of ownership was to ensure the same friendly, family atmosphere at the club. “It’s wonderful to hear people say they feel like family when they come out to Manderley,” said Jill Ferne, who remains at Manderley as the food and beverage manager. “It has always been our aim to create a family atmosphere.”

Come and enjoy manderley on the Green’s

27 Championship Golf holes

Jill Ferne is the Manderley Food and Beverage Manager while Andrew Robertson is the GM at Manderley. Robertson said that there will be continued emphasis on theme days this season. Family Days are Sunday afternoons, and Seniors Day for golfers 50 and over is every Monday. There will also be a full slate of leagues for golfers looking for league play.

Off the course, the renovations made to the clubhouse will allow Manderley to expand its banquet, event and wedding side of the business. For more information on Manderley, visit www.manderleygolf.com. With files from Mike Carroccetto

Myers Automotive players Miller Kay (7) and Caton Ryan (12) console goalie Karsen Chartier after a loss at the Ontario Peewee AAA Championships held at the Carleton University Ice House on April 10. Myers hosted the tournament and posted a 2-3-1 record, which was not good enough to advance them to the semi-finals. Barrhaven’s Henry Mews was the top scorer for Myers, with four goals and two assists in the tournament. The Mississauga Senators won the gold medal, beating the Brantford 99ers in the final. All players in the tournament were born in 2006. Mike Carroccetto photo
