Former PM John Diefenbaker was a big influence for Order of Ottawa recipient By Charlie Senack

Well known Ottawa lawyer and Manotick resident Lawrence Greenspon was among 15 people to receive the Order of Ottawa on November 23. Greenspon, a lawyer for almost 40 years, received the award for his work representing disadvantaged and diverse individuals and groups against police, governments, insurance companies and corporations. “It was a really nice honour,” Greenspon said. “It’s very special to be included in a great group of Ottawa (residents) who are most deserving.” The senior partner at Greenspon Granger Hill has an undergrad in biology, but was inspired to become a lawyer because of his late step-father. He was a Holocaust survivor and lost all of his family in the war, Greenspon said. “From a relatively young age, we used to talk at home about the importance of the protection of lives and freedoms and rights of people in the face of the power of the government.” John Diefenbaker also played a role. While on a

student politics trip with the late Mauril Belanger, the two were able to meet the former prime minister in Charlottetown. “A lot of people know he was a great criminal defence lawyer before he went into politics,” Greenspon said. “He (John Diefenbaker) talked to us about the inspirational ability to stand up for somebody who’s liberty depended on what you were doing; to stand up for people in the public forum.” The resident of Kelly’s Landing has no desire to retire, and plans to continue to practice law until he no longer enjoys it. More recently, Greenspon has represented many high-profile cases, the most recent, Joshua Boyle. When he’s not practising, Greenspon is involved in a variety of local charities and organizations, and is a charitable auctioneer. The Order of Ottawa recognizes citizen contributions in the many areas of city life, including arts and culture, business, community service, education, public service, labour, communications and media, science, medicine, sports and entertainment, and other fields that benefit the residents of Ottawa.

Lawyer Lawrence Greenspon (centre) poses for a photo with Mayor Jim Watson and his councillor George Darouze after receiving his Order of Ottawa medal at city hall last Thursday (Nov. 22). Amongst his many charitable pursuits, Greenspon spent 25 years as chair and board member of The Snowsuit Fund. Mike Carroccetto

Carleton MP and Shadow Finance Critic responds to Fall Economic Statement

During the last federal election campaign, Carleton MP and Conservative Shadow Finance Minister Pierre Poilievre was critical of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s claim that “the budget will balance itself.” Coming off a year when the federal deficit for the 2017-18 fiscal year was $19.9 billion, the projection for the upcoming fiscal year, which ends in March, is at $18.8 billion. The following year, the year that Prime Minister

Trudeau promised during the 2015 election campaign that the budget would be balanced, the deficit is expected to climb back up over $19 billion. “Justin Trudeau said the budget would balance itself,” Poilievre said. “Now he admits that under his plan it won’t balance at all. Instead, this year’s deficit is more than three times what he said it would be and he has added $60 billion to the national debt.” Liberal Finance Minister

Bill Morneau took the approach that despite the high spending, the ends are justifying the means. Unemployment is low and business profits are increasing. The economic forecast highlighted tax breaks made to businesses community, as well as investments for business growth. Poilievre is not buying Morneau’s positive spin. “The reality is Justin Trudeau has squandered the good fortune he inherited in 2015 and has failed to prepare for

inevitable future economic downturns,” Poilievre said. “His unrestrained spending and resulting deficits have forced interest rates and inflation up, putting even more pressure on already overtaxed and indebted Canadian families. “The cost of government is driving up the cost of living. This can not continue.” By the time Canadians go to the polls next year, the Trudeau Government will have added $75 billion to the

national debt. During the election campaign, they promised it would not go up by more than $20 billion. Poilievre said that the government is borrowing money on the backs of tomorrow’s Canadians. “Every year that Justin Trudeau runs deficits, he is borrowing money from future generations,” Poilievre commented. “Today’s deficits are tomorrow’s taxes. Canadians know that its wrong to leave their children with unpaid

bills, but that is exactly what the Prime Minister is doing.” Poilievre used the opportunity for an early campaign plug, emphasizing that his party would use a responsible approach to spending. “A Conservative government will stand up for the common sense of the common people who understand that budgets don’t balance themselves and who know you can’t get out of debt by borrowing more money,” he said.

Kidney from daughter may save life of former Manotick LCBO employee Go Fund Me page set up as donor has no benefits, insurance or sick leave to cover living and medical expenses By Jeff Morris We are always searching for that perfect Christmas gift to give our loved ones and family members. For retired Manotick LCBO employee Wendy Kraft, a single mother of two adult daughters, nothing could be more beautiful than the gift she is receiving from her daughter, Kielli. “I didn’t even think about it for a second,” Kielli said. “My mom is sick with a disease that could be fatal. When the doctors told us she needed a kidney, it was just a reaction. Of course, I am going to give her my kidney so she can get her life back.” The Krafts are waiting for the phone call letting them know they are up next for surgery. December would be the perfect month for the transplant. It would bring poignancy to Christmas for the family, as it was at Christmas time two years ago that Wendy became very sick. “I couldn’t make it through Christmas dinner,” Wendy said. “I couldn’t eat. I was fatigued, and I had a raging fever. I thought I had the flu.” Two days after Christmas in 2016, Wendy’s other daughter, Jill, took her mother to the emergency room at the Ottawa Civic Hospital, where it was discovered that both of Wendy’s kidneys had failed. She was transferred to the kidney unit at the General, where she was diagnosed with Goodpasture Syndrome, a disease that affects one in every two million people and is almost always fatal if not quickly diagnosed. Wendy went on dialysis immediately. Goodpasture Syndrome is a rare autoimmune disease in which antibodies attack the basement membrane in lungs and kidneys, leading to bleeding from the lungs and kidney failure. It may quickly result in permanent lung and kidney damage, often leading to death. It is treated with medications that suppress the immune system such as corticosteroids and cyclophosphamide, and with plasmapheresis, in which the antibodies are removed from the blood. “We didn’t know what this was,” Kielli said. “We didn’t know the severity of

it. We didn’t even understand what a kidney did.” Wendy had just retired from the LCBO in Manotick three months before becoming sick. She worked for the LCBO for 24 years. “When the doctor told us, I just started crying,” she said. “I thought I was going to die.” For almost two years, Wendy has required daily medical attention. Jill, who lives nearby and works at the LCBO in Barrhaven, learned to become an at-home caregiver when she was not working. Wendy went into the hospital three times per week for dialysis. In the middle of her kidney treatments, Wendy also required a hip replacement as she could not walk. “In just a short period of time, our mother was disintegrating in front of our eyes,” Kielli said. “Everything went downhill very fast. It was scary.” While Wendy would need a transplant, her health had to improve first. She had to continue with dialysis treatments. She does dialysis for eight hours per day at home while in bed. Her spare bedroom in her townhouse has become a storage room for dialysis equipment and other medical supplies. Jill and Kielli both started the testing process to see if they were compatible donors. They worked with the Kidney Foundation of Canada Living Donor Program. Kielli decided that she would be the one to step up and donate her kidney to her mother. “Jill was the one who stayed home with her and looked after her,” Kielli said. “She put both her jobs on hold. For me, I was too scared to acknowledge what was going on instead of facing the reality that my mom was going to die. I was so scared I just wanted to avoid it, but Jill was in fight mode for her.” Kielli has gone through eight months of testing, 23 doctors appointments, as well as mandatory appointments with a psychologist to prepare her for the donation. Last week, she met with the anesthesiologist and surgeon. For Kielli, however, it is not as simple as donating a kidney and resuming your life as normal. She works as a lighting consultant for a

Kielli paused for a moment, and she started sobbing as she spoke about her situation. “What am I supposed to do? Am I supposed to not donate my kidney to save my mom’s life because I don’t have benefits and I can’t afford it?” Kielli is taking an unpaid leave of absence from her job. Even getting time off was difficult. “They asked me if I could wait until January when they weren’t as busy,” she said. “I feel horrible putting them in a difficult position, and I feel horrible that my friends, who are my co-workers, may

often overcome with guilt over the situation her daughter will be in. “I am afraid for her,” Wendy said of her daughter. “Donating an organ is not easy, and I worry that she can handle it physically.” Kielli has asthma and also had an allergic reaction to the iodine she received in a CT Scan during the testing period. “And I worry about the cost,” Wendy added. “My Great West Life plan through my retirement from the LCBO covers 90 per cent of the drugs, but there are some that aren’t covered. The drugs for me will cost

about $4,000 per month. She has no coverage at all, and I don’t know how she is going to be able to afford her medication and be able to pay her rent and pay her bills and survive with no income.” Wendy also paused for a moment and cried as she thought of the sacrifice her daughter was making for her. Kielli will be bedridden for at least four weeks after she donates her kidney, and her recovery time is expected to be four months before she can return to work. Jill is hoping that a successful transplant will bring joy back into their lives at Christmas, the time of year when Wendy’s problems began two years ago. “I’m nervous but excited,” she said. “I want us to get through this and for everything to be okay. Nothing in life matters more than the people you love. I don’t care about lights and trees this Christmas. I care about the two most important people in my life getting through this.” Jill has started a Go Fund

Me page where people can donate to help pay for her sister’s living expenses and medication while she recovers from the surgery. Kielli, meanwhile, knows there is a big health risk for her and for her mother during their surgeries. Her mother may not survive the surgery, but she will not survive without the surgery. “My mom’s main concern is that I can’t afford to take time off work to give her a kidney while she is dying,” Kielli said. “If I go into debt, I’m willing to do that. I would get a bank loan for this if I could qualify, but I can’t. This is a life or death situation. We can’t even think about putting a price on saving Mom’s life.” Kielli smiles as she looks at her mother. “I’m giving you my kidney for Christmas,” she said. “You’re not getting any other presents from me.” If you wish to visit the Go Fund Me page to assist the Kraft family, visit www. gofundme.com/kidney-donation-transplant-help.

Rideau-GoulbournREPORT Santa Claus is coming to North Gower, Manotick and Richmond

As we march into December and toward Christmas, things begin to get a little busier in the community and at City Hall. Throughout Rideau-Goulbourn, our communities will begin to celebrate Santa Claus’ arrival with countless events. Christmas in the Gower kicks it all off this Friday, November 30th. On Saturday, December 1st, the Manotick Santa Claus parade begins at 1:00pm. The Richmond Santa Claus parade takes place a week later on the 8th beginning at St. Philip’s School at 5:30pm. Meanwhile, at City Hall, the new term of Council begins on December 1st with the official swearing in ceremony being held at the Shaw Centre on Monday, December 3rd. We will follow that up with a couple of Council meetings and the Nominating Committee as we determine who will sit on what committee or board in the coming term of Council. It is also anticipated that Council will consider the next steps for the City of Ottawa following the legalization of cannabis and Ontario’s regulations surrounding retail sales of cannabis.

2019 Town Hall Series

In 2019, we will be hosting a series of town hall meetings to help kick off the term of Council. We will host these meetings in Burritt’s Rapids, Pierce’s Corners, Kars, North Gower, Stittsville, Richmond, Munster, Ashton, Manotick, Country Club Village, Fallowfield Village and in the Quinn’s Pointe community in Barrhaven.

WARD REPORT by Councillor Scott Moffatt

Transit Customer Systems & Planning) and Troy Charter (Director, Transit Operations). We look forward to seeing many Richmond residents there and working towards a sustainable solution.

Washka Park

Manotick’s newest park design is seeking your input. Washka Park will be located at 855 Artemis Circle within the new Regional development, Riverwalk, on Manotick Main Street at Century Road. Comments are being accepted until December 14th. Please visit https://tinyurl.com/washkapark to find out more about Washka Park and to see the proposed design. The name of the park is derived from an Algonquin word. Through the development process, archeologists found sherds of decorated Middle Woodland Period (approximately 500BC) pottery near the water within the development. The Algonquins were contacted and they chose to name the archeological site with the word ‘washkà’ [wush-KAH], which is their

word for ‘crooked’, and in this case acknowledges the zigzag lines impressed in the pottery sherds that were recovered. As a result, Regional adopted that name for their proposed park.

Kanata South Link

In the past, I have mentioned the Kanata South Link project that will see the widening of Old Richmond Road and West Hunt Club as well as intersection upgrades including a roundabout at Hope Side Road and Old Richmond Road. I am pleased to report that the project is out to tender now and expected to close before year-end. Utility work is scheduled to continue over the winter months. Once the contract has been awarded, the priority will be to begin with layout, environmental mitigation measures such as erosion and sediment control, fencing, tree clearing for the utility works along the new road widening corridor and in-water works. The National Capital Commission Land Transfer Agreements were approved by the NCC Board last week. They will go through their internal processes over the next few weeks with final signature from the Director of NCC before they will finalize permission to enter the lands for construction.



Once half loads have been lifted in May 2019, the main construction work will begin and will be completed by fall 2020. We will be sure to continue to post updates on this major project as it continues to progress.

A December Fa La La

The Village Voices Women’s Choir presents “A December Fa La La” on Sunday, December 9th at 2:00pm with special guests The Manotick Brass Ensemble at St. Paul’s Anglican Church, 5462 Osgoode Main Street.

The MessengerRICHMONDHUB.CA World premiere of ‘Richmond – The Movie’ plays to capacity crowd By John Shearer

There was a “buzz” in the room as a capacity crowd gathered in the South Carleton High School Cafetorium for the world premiere of “Richmond: The Movie”. A 200th anniversary project of John Curry and Sandy Durocher, the movie is the culmination of hundreds of hours of work over the past two and a half years. It is sure to be remembered as a highlight caping the year long celebration of Richmond’s bicentennial. Surrounded by soldiers of the 100th Regiment of Foot, the Duke of Richmond and members of the Goulbourn Historical Society in period dress, John Curry, author, historian and long time editor of The Stittsville News, welcomed the capacity crowd. He expressed his gratitude for such a large turnout and promised they were in for a treat. History was being made and those present were themselves a part of Richmond’s

history by participating at this first public showing of the movie. The movie, a two hour long production, starts with beautiful aerial views of Richmond before taking the audience on a journey through time exploring fascinating glimpses of the history of Richmond and surrounding communities. Curry himself, wearing a top hat, narrates many of the scenes as the story moves the audience through time. The settlement of the area, its’ military roots, the founding of Richmond, early hardships, the infamous “fox”, prominent citizens, schools, churches, the fire department, the Lions Club, the Masonic Hall and what it means to be “blackballed”, the Orange Hall, war veterans, Silver Stick Hockey fame, the 1929 meeting of the KKK, the 1938 bank robbery, the Fall Fair, Olympic Gold, the Richmond Bakery, local characters and a look to the future … it was all there and more! If you are thinking this

sounds like a rather boring historical review you would be wrong! Several scenes were accompanied with injections of humour that brought gales of laughter from the audience. Curry’s wry wit combined with a keen nose for what grabs the attention of an audience kept things light yet focused. Scenes featuring interviews with local residents brought lots of interest and community involvement to the production. Overall, the movie captured a sense of history and community that can only strengthen the place Richmond holds in both the hearts of its’ residents and the history books. As one newcomer to the village shared with me “What a great community this is, far more than just another suburb, I’m glad we chose to live here … love it!” Besides the movie, people in attendance were given the opportunity to reserve a copy of the soon to be released book “Richmond’s Got Spirit! 200 Years of

Building Community 1818 – 2018” by John Curry. The book will be available in a couple of weeks. It is about 400 pages in length, covers much of what is in the movie and more with lots of photographs. The crowd of 400 or so in attendance were treated to cake, soft drinks and coffee as well as an opportunity to win and or purchase some of the Richmond200 swag that remained. Many attendees donated to the Food Bank raising $1700.00. Several bags of groceries were gathered as well. The organizing committee extends their thanks for this generosity. As a souvenir, everyone was provided with a bookmark that provides a quick reference to village historical milestones. The community of Richmond is definitely richer thanks to the efforts John Curry, Sandy Durocher and the many folk who brought forward their time, talent and stories making the movie

Author, historian, longtime editor of The Stittsville News and now movie producer – John Curry awaits the World Premier of “Richmond: The Movie” possible. Numerous people asked where they could get a copy of the movie. While there are no firm plans to produce one on DVD that is being considered. It will be available

on YouTube soon for those that were not able to attend the premier. The HUB will send out an update as soon as it is available. The final word …”An awesome evening!”

Recollections of winter days and nights in the Country

Winter in a small town means leaden skies, frosty air and hedges gemmed with clumps of snow. It’s only in the country that we grow to understand the meaning and the mystery of nature’s wonderland. It happens when we tread lightly in the fresh snow-covered garden; being careful because under that blanket daffodils and snowdrops may be sleeping; then at night, when we behold the beauty as the silvery moon looks down on the sleepy town covered with winterwhite. This is Manotick today! This will be Manotick tomorrow! Memories of winter evenings are different for everyone but there are some we hold in common. On the farm for example, settling down after the stock have


THIS MONTH by Larry Ellis been fed and sheltered from the storm; the old kitchen stove with the wood box heaped and ready, the soothing click of the clock on the mantle; now it’s time to read yesterdays paper. This was home, where money and politics were not as important as loving kindness and where even the teakettle sang for happiness. In the beauty of the moonlight snowflakes swirled through the frosty air covering the earth like ermine. A glimmering, bright star shone through the top-

most bough of the tree by Watson’s Mill. When the dawn broke bright and fair we saw a picture postcard as far as the eye could see for our country town was giftwrapped by “Queen Winter’s” artistry. Such a magic transformation had transpired overnight as the drifting pristine snowflakes wove a cover of white. All the trees were decked in splendor; frozen icicles trimmed the branches into a fairyland of dreams. The Rideau River gleamed as the golden rainbows shone diamonds in it.

Mounds of white crowned every rooftop, fence posts all donned caps of snow. A chickadee on snow topped cedar branch loosened a tiny avalanche of shimmering white stars, and then flew on. Smoke drifts aimlessly from distant chimneys. The lights on lamp posts, outdoor lights on homes and trees come alive and cast a warm glow on the fluffy snow. Winter’s gift of a sparkling whiteness tied with Jack Frost’s lace and bow. “Old-fashioned” are the small towns but they are the best indeed! Why? Because you’ll truly find the friendships, joy and peace you need. No one knows winter’s dazzling charm unless they’ve seen unblemished snow-covered fields in the country and country means small towns like Manotick!

Capitals scout and former NHL player brings the Stanley Cup to Manotick feeling. Luckily, I have a great family and two young kids so that kept me busy.” Two years after retiring, Bradley landed the job as a scout with the Capitals. “It allowed me to stay in the game and see a lot of guys that

used to play with,” he said. Bradley had a full day with the Stanley Cup in the village, sharing the experience with friends, family, and the community. “At my son’s IP practice at the Osgoode Arena, everyone

got to see it and the kids got to take pictures with the Cup with their equipment on,” he said. “We took it home to have an intimate moment with the Cup and my family. And then I brought it to the fire station because it’s rare that people

can do something for these men and women that do so much for us. It was neat for

me to be able to bring something for them in appreciation of what they do.”

Minor hockey players Joshua and Jack Montgomery, ages 7 and 9 respectively, of Kars, along with dad Kris, snag a photo with Washington Capitals pro scout Matt Bradley and the Stanley Cup at the Manotck Fire Station on Saturday, Nov. 17. Bradley, a Stittsville native, settled in Manotick with his family after he retired from the NHL. Mike Carroccetto photo




It was a memorable day for hockey fans in Manotick Sat., Nov. 17 as the Stanley Cup was a special visitor for the day. Washington Capitals scout former NHL player Matt Bradley brought the Cup to his five-year-old son’s IP practice at the Osgoode Arena in the morning. In the afternoon, he brought it to the first responders at the Manotick Fire Station, and then it was on to the Manotick Curling Club. As per tradition, each member of the Stanley Cupwinning team and front office gets to spend a day with the Cup. Bradley, a Stittsville native, spent 11 seasons in the NHL as a player. After playing junior hockey with the Kingston Frontenacs, he was a San Jose Sharks draft pick and spent five seasons in their system. He played for the Penguins for one year, the Capitals for six, and finished his career with the Florida Panthers. Bradley moved to Manotick following his retirement from playing, and joined the Capitals as a pro scout, watching opposing NHL teams and their AHL affiliates to identify players for possible trades or free agent signings. “It’s a good place to live because there are a lot of teams within a close vicinity,” Bradley said. Bradley and his family live on the south end of the island in the village and have settled into the community. “When I retired from playing I thought we were going to move back to Stittsville but my wife’s mom and stepdad were living in Manotick.” He said. “We came here to visit and we really liked the area, and we’re on the water which we really love. We built a home here and we’re going to be here for a long time.” Transitioning out of sports is difficult for any athlete, and for Bradley, it was an adjustment. “It was harder than I thought it would be,” Bradley said. “I knew it wouldn’t be easy. I moved away at 16 to play junior and I had basically been doing the same thing from 16 to 34. Your body is programmed so that when fall hits, you’re ready to go to training camp. When that doesn’t happen, it’s a weird

Mahogany Dock Project gets green light from Parks Canada

While driving south on Rideau Valley Drive, you may have noticed some work happening at Mahogany Harbour. Manotick Culture, Parks and Recreation Association (MCPRA) is pleased to report that the ‘top-­of-bank’ construction of the Mahogany Landing has commenced. Next spring you can look forward to tying your boat or kayak up and popping into one of the local shops in the Village. D&G Landscaping, a local firm, and general contractor for the project, broke ground on Monday, October 29. While some work is weather dependent, most of the construction will be done in the next few weeks. The Parks Canada permit was issued October 24, 2018, allowing in-water work to commence. Although dock construction was being planned for the upcoming winter, at a significant cost savings, the recently received Parks Canada permit noted that ‘to protect fish spawning activity, Parks Canada no longer allows any in‐water work to take place in this section of the Rideau River between January 1st and June 30th of any given year.’ The in-water timing restrictions are set by the provincial Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry, as they monitor fish species and populations, and Parks Canada delivers it through their permits. The timing windows were updated by MNRF at the end of 2017. As a result, every effort is being made to put the dock in now, pending water levels/ contractor availability, etc. If it’s not feasible, dock construction will have to be deferred to July 1, 2019. Prior to the issuance of the permit, Parks Canada required a ‘cultural resource study’ to determine if there were any ‘underwater resources’, e.g. remains of a grain elevator that once stood in the vicinity of the dock. A cultural consultant was contracted to conduct both a desktop

The tender price for the park and dock is just slightly over $150,000, including the anticipated extra costs to put the helical piles in during the non-winter months. The funding goal has been met, concluding just recently with a successful joint grant application by MCPRA and the Manotick BIA, to Ottawa Tourism, for $15,000. A big thank you to the many generous project

donors, including MCPRA’s fundraising team: Chic Time 2017 & 2018 ($50,000), City of Ottawa ($50,000+), Kiwanis Club of Manotick ($25,000), Manotick BIA ($10,000), Manotick Village & Community Association ($1,000), individual and inkind donors and sponsors including Minto, D&G Landscaping, Annis O’Sullivan Vollebekk Land Surveyors, EQ Homes, Manotick Classic Boat Club, Splash Pools, Mack Family, Bowler Family, and Allan Haan. Thanks also go to Councillor Scott Moffatt, whose constant and con-

tinued support made the project feasible. The Mahogany Dock Initiative was first imagined in 1995 through an extensive community visioning exercise. The Journey since then has not been without its challenges. Moving forward, it’s hoped that both local residents and visitors will come to appreciate and enjoy the amenities at the new Mahogany Harbour Landing and its many benefits for the Village.

Public Consultation begins on Earl Armstrong Road extension The first meeting of the Public Consultation Group on the environmental assessment of the proposed extension of Earl Armstrong Road was held on November 14 and was attended by a small group of community representatives including the Manotick Village and Community Association. The City presented the parameters of the Environmental Assessment process for the extension of Earl Armstrong Road from Albion Road to Hawthorne Road along with their considerations and recommended route. City staff have examined a number of different routes for the extension and are recommending a route that has the least impact on property owners. The route will flow just north of the Casino lands. A public open house is planned for January 2019 and will be followed by more discussions with the Public Consultation Group. A subsequent public open house will be held before presentation of the final report to the City Transportation Committee and Council in spring of 2019. The Public Consultation Group enables representatives of community associations, public interest groups and City of Ottawa advisory committees to provide direct input on the environmental assessment study, advising and commenting on local issues and opportunities. The MVCA is in support of the extension of Earl Armstrong as it will provide a more direct route for industrial vehicles moving from east to west across the City and provide more connections to the LRT station at Bowesville.

The MessengerSPORTS Shootout win in Embrun gives Richmond Royals second straight win

For the first time in the CCHL2 junior hockey season, the Richmond Royals have strung together consecutive wins. The Royals, who had lost nine of their last 10 games, shut out the Arnprior Packers 5-0 at home before beating Embrun 4-3 in a shootout on the road Saturday. On Sun., Nov. 18, the Royals hosted the Arnprior Packers and Eric Tessier made 38 saves for his first shutout as a Royal in a 5-0 win. Ryan Bonfield had two goals and an assist and Ethan Vaslet added a pair of goals for the Royals. Patrick Yates also scored. Right wingers Adam Goodfellow and Aidan Parnell each had two assists with one each going to Gabriel Di Virgilio, Willem Brandt, Ryan Bouley, Owen Nevins and Dale Kilby. On Saturday, Patrick Yates was the game’s first star with a goal, two assists and the shootout winner in a 4-3 win over the Embrun Panthers.

Adam Goodfellow also had a goal and two assists, while Ryan Bonfield, the game’s second star, had a goal, an assist, and a shootout goal. Willem Brandt added an assist.

Dining Out uring Feat

Gatherings with friends and family are a big part of the holiday season. Many people travel during the holidays to spend time with distant relatives, but those same people often want to gather with those loved ones who live nearby as well. Thus an abundance of gatherings comes in December, when office parties, dinners with family and festivities with friends have a way of dominating the last five weeks of

Stress-free holiday hosting tips

the year.

All of those gatherings translate to a lot of holiday hosting, and hosts can easily feel overwhelmed as they try to juggle hosting duties with everything else that comes along during this time of year. Dining out can help relieve some of the holiday stress. Dining out has many advantages, including no cleanup once the meal is over and a more varied menu that provides guests more choices than the standard holiday fare. Dining out can also prove less expensive for the holiday host. The tab at the end of a

night on the town can be split among the guests, whereas the food bill when hosting a holiday dinner at home is often left to the host and the host alone. • Call around. A favorite restaurant might be tops on your list, but do some comparison shopping before settling on a restaurant. Prices can vary greatly when it comes to private parties, and some might not even be capable of accommodating the kind of large party that might accompany you for a holiday dinner. • Pick a restaurant that’s accessible to everyone. Guests can

stay overnight when a holiday dinner is at a relative’s house. However, guests will almost certainly be driving home after a holiday dinner at a restaurant. Make everyone’s post-meal commute home as easy as possible by choosing a centrally located restaurant that’s equidistant from everyone’s home. • Is the restaurant’s pricing flexibile. There might be room for negotiation regarding the menu, including choices on the food and beverages being offered, but you’ll never know if you don’t ask. Traditional holiday fare will likely be available,



but discuss alternatives to such menu items, including if there is anything for vegetarians or if there is a gluten-free meal option. In addition, some restaurants might be willing to negotiate price, especially for large parties. • Don’t forget invitations. Treat the holiday dinner like you might treat a wedding reception or a birthday party. Include directions to the restaurant in your invitations, and remind guests that holiday traffic might require they leave earlier to make it to the restaurant on time for the start of the meal.
