Ontario working to reduce red tape for agricultural fairs Ontario making it easier to celebrate rural traditions like Richmond Fair, Capital Fair, Metcalfe Fair Ontario is working to reduce red tape for over 500 Ontario agricultural and horticultural organizations in the province, including our very own Capital Fair, Richmond Fair, and Metcalfe Fair! This fall, the Ontario government will introduce legislation that, if passed, would save organizations and their volunteers time and money by removing burdensome and outdated rules that regulate agricultural and horticultural societies. We are working to remove unnecessary and outdated burdens for our province’s agricultural and horticultural organizations. Many local fairs rely on volunteers. By reducing red tape, we will help save these organizations time

and money so they can focus on what they do best - promoting rural Ontario and agriculture. If passed, the proposed changes include giving organizations flexibility and financial savings by removing the requirement to both mail and publish notices of annual meetings. This could reduce compliance costs for all organizations by over $100,000 a year. Changes would also remove burdensome and outdated requirements that don’t apply to other notfor-profit organizations,

such as requiring treasurers to give security for loss or for board members to be personally liable for loss. The proposed changes would not impact government grants and tax exemptions available to agricultural and horticultural organizations. The proposed changes announced today reduce unnecessary red tape and make it easier for agricultural and horticultural societies to spend their time and resources more effectively. We’re proud to support the celebration and promotion of agriculture and rural life in local communities across Ontario. Due to the current legislation, many agricultural organizations in towns without a local paper are forced to publish notices

of annual meetings. The proposed changes include giving organizations more flexibility by removing the requirement to both mail and publish notices of annual meetings. Quick Facts • There are over 500 agricultural and horticultural associations and societies preserving and celebrating rural way Ontario, such as by hosting agricultural fairs. • Ontario’s first agricultural fair dates back to 1792 in Niagara-on-theLake. • The Agricultural and Horticultural Organizations Act establishes province-wide direction for agricultural associations and agricultural and horticultural societies. • More information

on the proposed changes for agricultural and horticultural organizations is available on the Ontario government website. • These changes would build on the momentum of the Ontario government’s priority to tackle red tape and unnecessary burdens, including the passage of the Making Ontario Open for Business Act in November 2018, and the Restoring Ontario’s Competitiveness Act in April 2019. • If passed, the proposed changes will save agricultural societies hundreds of dollars and volunteer hours by allowing notices of annual meetings to be emailed instead of mailed.

The MessengerNEWS Neighbours concerned over proposed Roger Stevens Drive warehouse By Jeff Morris

A public meeting has been scheduled for Thursday, Oct. 17 to discuss a zoning change that would allow a 30-metre building to be erected at Roger Stevens Drive and Highway 416 in North Gower. The meeting will take place at the Alf Taylor Community Centre in North Gower from 7-9 p.m. The site is owned by Broccolini, the same company that built and owns the Amazon distribution centre at 417 and Anderson Road near the east end of Mitch Owens Road. “There are four or five potential suitors for the North Gower site,” Rideau-Goulbourn Councillor Scott Moffatt said. “They will own the building and lease it out, simi-

lar to what they are doing with Amazon.” Broccolini has requested to have the permitted height for a building on the property raised from 15m to 30m. According to Moffatt, the existing silo on the top of the hill is 20m high. Because Broccolini will be leveling the property, the building they are proposing would be approximately the same height as the silo. They have also requested that the property be under one zone, instead of being split into three zones. “Right now, the site is kind of a doughnut,” said Moffatt. “A warehouse use is permitted on about 95 per cent of the property, except for the middle. They want to make it uniform for warehouse space across the property.”

North Gower property owners backing onto the property say they were blindsided by the potential of having a massive commercial and industrial warehouse immediately behind them. “There were six property owners who received a letter from the City of Ottawa about the zoning change application,” said Ace Powell, who lives on Third Line Road just off Roger Stevens Drive. “Even our neighbours across the street did not receive the letter.” Powell said that residents on the street are not happy about the planned warehouse. “There are a lot of concerns we have,” Powell said. “There will be constant transport truck traffic off the 416 onto Roger Stevens Drive. That road

and that interchange can’t handle that traffic. There is also the amount of noise that will come from the warehouse, likely all day and all night, as well as the bright lights. We don’t want to have this right behind our back yard.” Moffatt said those have been the main concerns with the proposal. “Those are the things that Broccolini will have to look at,” Moffatt said. “What can we do in terms of minimizing light pollution? One of the greatest things about the rural area is that we can see the stars at night. We don’t want to take that away. So what can we do in the parking lot to see that the security issues are addressed, but that we won’t have this massive light pollution issue. I know there’s technology they can use

to keep the lighting facing down and not have that upward projection.” Moffatt added that Broccolini has a traffic plan for the site. “They are looking at how they can reconfigure Roger Stevens Drive as it meets the 416,” Moffatt said. “The truck traffic will be from the 416, onto the site, and back onto the 416. But the concern of the community is the employees. Which way will they come from?” The site is, according to Moffatt, the only site along the 416 zoned for industrial uses. It has been zoned and designated for industrial and commercial usage since the 1990s. “There’s no other site.” Said Moffatt. “Bankfield Road isn’t really near much, and Dilworth isn’t near much, but you can’t

build on those interchanges. And you can only build on one corner of the Roger Stevens Interchange with the 416. So the fact that North Gower is there presents a challenge because of its impact on the community, but the fact that it’s there is actually irrelevant to the application. This application for this site would have come regardless of whether North Gower was there or not.” Moffatt said he expects work on the site to begin in 2021. Broccolini will secure a tenant before they go ahead with a site plan. “When they come forward with a site plan application, which deals with the building details and the property and the traffic issues, they’ll know who the tenant is at that point,” Moffatt said.

More help for seniors when they need it Most Canadian seniors have spent their lives working, raising their families, and shaping this country. In retirement, they deserve the support they need to live active, independant lives as long as they can. One of the first things our government did in 2015 was reverse the Harper decision to make Canadians work two more years to qualify for their CPP. A re-elected Liberal goverment will take the next steps to give more support to our seniors when they need it most.

• Increasing the OAS for seniors at the age of 75, up to $700 more, to help with increasing costs as we age. • Increasing the CPP Survivors Benefit, giving up to $2,080 more each year to widows and widowers after they lose their loved one. • This means nearly $3,000 more support every year for seniors after the age of 75

Join our movement, and help us move forward together.

Nature is the master decorator for a colourful Autumn THIS MONTH by Larry Ellis on canvas or fabrics. Outdoor light has a quality that blends their native beauty, whatever the hues. Architects have discovered that the most beautiful, livable houses are those which allow nature to do much of the decorating through windows which frame the landscape and draw in the outdoors. Shadows come in brilliant individuality on a

sparkling day in fall. Sidewalks are stripped with a picket fence, like the one on Dickinson Street, while farther down the street the shadow of the trees mesh with grass to form a “cobweb” image. Trees seem to reprint themselves in a shadowy blur on the pavement. I think that it is natural for rocks to be a kind of gray, having lain under the

Time makes materials harmonize. As summers moments pass quickly we stand face to face with the routine and rigours of another fall and winter. For many the days are packed with activities and commitments, each the sign of a full life. Fall in all its glory is upon us.

Curtains and drapes of misty silver; multihued clouds; the swags and fringes and vivid accents of leaves are under Nature’s command.

The MessengerLETTER ‘Greely Grandmas’ strike back at Braid’s anti-Conservative rant

The Editor, As usual the “Andy Braid Attack Dog” is busy attacking Conservatives. Yes, the Conservatives have shifted to the left, similar to the “Gigantic Leap Forward” by the Liberals under Trudeau. The Conservatives too are spending taxpayer’s money like the “budgets balance themselves” Liberal Prime Minister Trudeau. 19 Billion and rising and that is just the yearly defecit ,not our federal debt. I have not mentioned the costly promises of the New Democratic Party and Green Party. Oh, what a poor legacy we are leaving our children and grandchildren. Why the Conservative shift? Perhaps the Conservatives are desperate to defeat Trudeau and are trying to attract new voters. As for climate change, our contribution to green house gases is a drop in the bucket. The Conserva-

tives are onto something with their idea to have Canadian technology and resources help poorer, polluting countries. As for pollution, flooding and fires, we have been lax in protecting our environment for years. Concerning oil and the Conservative plan to use our own oil with an East -West pipeline, what a refreshing idea to use our own resources and provide jobs for our own people! Much better than importing Saudi oil down the St.Lawrence River on tanker ships. As for the Conservative plan, copying Trudeau Senior’s National Energy Plan, it is preferred to NO pipelines under Justin Trudeau ! Alberta has faithfully transferred a share of their wealth to the rest of Canada for years in equalization payments. The Reform Party from Alberta said “we want in” rather than Quebec and it’s constant

separation threat. Alberta has been poorly treated by Canada , especially by Quebec, the province that receives the most from the equalization payments. Finally, the Liberal Party has been smearing the Conservatives and their

candidates by past words or the free choice to support life. They spread fear by using Doug Ford cuts in Ontario. Shall we mention Kathleen Wynn and Dalton McGuinty and the Ontario debt! The Liberals are desperate too, after 4 years in power they have accom-

Changes to Provincial Policy Statement for Development

The Ontario government has outlined a number of changes to the Provincial Policy Statement, the document that guides land use planning in the Province. The changes are designed to increase the housing supply, facilitate economic and sustainable growth and streamline the approval process. The City is asking for a number of changes to the proposed amendments to the Policy Statement. They were discussed at the City’s Agriculture and Rural Affairs Committee on October 3 and received unanimous approval. Many of the City’s changes that are relevant to the rural communities related to addressing the impact of climate change and protecting the agricultural areas. Specifically, the City asked the Province to consider the importance of parks in

creating liveable communities as part of the Policy Statement. They also asked the Province to consider adopting some measures specific to rural development that would see the longterm viability and sustainability of rural areas (both agricultural

areas and rural settlements), including a clearer direction with respect to potential impacts on agricultural operations when considering new housing developments. In keeping with its emphasis on how to address the impacts

of climate change, the City has also asked that the Statement allows for planning of streets, spaces and facilities to provide adequate shade and shelter and that it reflects the need to prioritize trees over other priorities.

Third World Bazaar brings the world to Manotick every fall By Charlie Senack

For 38 years, the Third World Bazaar has been bringing items from all across the globe into Manotick, but only for seven weekends a year. Anneka Bakker’s family has owned the businesses for the last 16 years, but it was started 22 years before that after her uncle took a year-long trip across the globe. He loved the crafts they were finding — everything from carvings to paintings — each so unique and individual — he decided to bring them back and open up shop. “We have everything from a good variety of clothing from around the

globe, Christmas ornaments, linens, home furniture, decor, carpets, and more,” said Bakker. But while the shop located at 6110 Mitch Owens Drive, is only open for seven weekends a year, work is taking place all year long to prepare for next year. “We travel for a good part of the winter to SouthEast Asia, Africa, Latin America, and the Middle East,” states Bakker. “We have products from all continents across the globe except Antarctica.” The reason for travelling is to work directly with the artists and vendors across the globe, Bakker said. It’s a way for them to know how the products are being made, and brings that hu-

man connection to it from a world away. Most of the businesses third world bazar deals with are small mom and pop shops who have their store at the front of their house. Last year they travelled directly to Thailand and Indonesia — two places they frequently work with — and also went to Mexico. New this year they also went to Kenya where they sourced textiles, hand carved and painted items — primarily animal replicas. “Often time when we go to a country where we don’t have business or we are trying to build out, we will first find a shipper who exports the goods out of the country,” explains Bakker.

“They often know who the artisans are, where they

come from, and what parts of the region we should be

The MessengerCOMMUNITY Council must find a new way to fund growth-related infrastructure

Last week I had my budget meeting with the Mayor and Senior City Staff. This yearly meeting affords Councillors the opportunity to speak about the priorities in their Wards. Similar to residents who reach out to my office with requests, Councillors, in turn, meet with staff to find ways to ensure local priorities are given the proper attention. There isn’t one community in Ottawa’s south end that does not need new infrastructure or repairs. After almost one year in public office, I can tell you that trying to get anything done at City Hall is


WARD REPORT by Carol Anne Meehan

like trying to turn around a massive ship. Although City budgets are around 3.6 billion dollars, the truth is most of that is already spoken for, either through staff costs or mandated spending on programs. Council is also looking to adequately fund the core services residents expect us to provide, snow plowing, parks and recreation

activities, and infrastructure renewal, to name a few. The hardest part of my job is trying to get the big bureaucratic paperwork monster to look up from its mountain of files and reports and to pay attention to what residents need. I’m fortunate to have already seen one significant policy idea make its way through the maze, that’s the $57 million in Federal Gas Taxes Council has agreed to spend over three years to improve infrastructure. Overall $13 million more will be spent between now and 2022 than was previously approved in 2018 - a

win for taxpayers. What I am currently working on is trying to figure out how we get ourselves out of the massive mess of build subdivisions first, build infrastructure later that’s adversely impacting new communities and ultimately all of us with traffic gridlock. I don’t want to be critical but if previous councils had acted, we wouldn’t find ourselves in such a bind. Council must adopt a new way to fund growthrelated infrastructure when new communities are built,and do it without borrowing vast amounts

of money in the process. Many will remember the old City of Nepean. You may have even heard the saying, “Nepean, Nepean, a great place to be in.” That little phrase was as accurate then as it is now when it comes to infrastructure projects. At amalgamation Nepean had money in the bank, excellent services, and well-funded infrastructure because everything was pay as you go. This should have been a model the City of Ottawa took to the bank in addition to the millions of dollars it inherited. Many of the smaller municipalities operated similarly; they fo-

cused on what they needed to provide because they could not be everything to everyone. Well, I am not a career politician, and I never intend to be. Going into 2020 I will be shaking the tree, trying to find ways to change the way things are done City Hall. The Nation’s Capital should not be underfunding critical infrastructure while hiking taxes, fees and levies. Ottawa needs a culture change and I’m going to do whatever I can to make that happen.

Rideau-GoulbournREPORT A chance to focus on what we’re doing instead of what’s happening

In recent weeks, things have been fairly tumultuous at City Council. This certainly is not the term that I envisioned. Some have compared this to the 2006-2010 Term of Council, but it is clear now that this one is different. I recently wrote about the current term in one of my columns. Instead of focusing on the negative, though, I would like to take some time to shed light on some of the things I am involved in as your Councillor since most of the public focus is on what is happening at Council rather than what we are doing at Council. One of the main reasons for doing this now is that I was recently named as one of two Councillors who will be responsible for duties in College Ward. I would like to ensure all residents of Rideau-Goulbourn that this will not take away from our team’s efforts to look after our constituents, first and foremost. Council has several Sponsors Groups currently. These are made of Councillors with


WARD REPORT by Councillor Scott Moffatt

the intent to guide discussion and policy outside of the Committee structure. It helps ensure that Council’s voice is heard throughout the various processes in developing new and significant policy. If I remember correctly, there are currently four Council Sponsors Groups. I sit on three of them. All relate to my role as Chair of the Standing Committee on Environmental Protection, Water & Waste Management. The first is the sponsors group assisting with the development of the City of Ottawa’s new Solid Waste Master Plan. This is our opportunity to determine which direction we are taking on all aspects of garbage. Our key priorities need to be waste diversion

and reduction. How do we make it easier for our residents, not more difficult? I am of the belief that it is not your fault that you end up with waste at the end of the week that can only go in a garbage bag. You should not be seen as being in the wrong and you should not be punished for this. Other municipalities have gone down the road of punitive measures as a means to increase waste diversion. I do not support that. Further, the last thing we want is another landfill. The second last thing I want is an incinerator with an exorbitant price tag. Consider that the relatively new incinerator in Durham will cost taxpayers $600M by 2029. What other options exist? We are already working on developing answers to that question and we need to be open to innovative alternatives. Other members of this group are Councillors El-Chantiry, Dudas and Menard. The next sponsors group is on the matter of climate

Local author Molly O’Connor to tour Northern Ontario

Local author Molly O’Connor recently completed a successful book signing tour in the Toronto area and is now heading to Sault Ste. Marie and Sudbury. Her latest novel, While She Was Gone, continues to place her female protagonist in non-traditional roles and highlights mental illness seldom featured in the media. That being said, she is primarily a story-teller. This fast-paced novel tells the story of a young mother, who in desperation, walks away from her home, leaving her husband and three beloved children. Her objective is to be gone for several months, during which time, she intends to better herself and gain self confidence. An unexpected turn of events keeps her away for seven years. This fast-paced novel, takes the reader on her journey, sometimes tragic, sometimes rewarding, sometimes humorous. Starting in Ottawa, the scene moves to Sudbury and Manitoulin Island. Molly explores local folk lore and takes the reader to unexpected places and introduces them to special events. As a true Canadian, Molly loves to present a new prospective on Canadian culture to her readers. Molly has published five books; a collection of short stories, Fourteen Cups; a creative memoir, Wandering Backward ; a children’s book, Snow Business and another novel, When Secrets Become Lies. Molly’s short stories are featured in five Chicken Soup for the Soul books and her work appears in a number of

change. This one is not necessarily attached to any one policy direction, but we are currently overseeing the Climate Change Master Plan and the implementation of Energy Evolution, which is Ottawa’s collaborative effort with the community to transition to renewable energy. As an example, Energy Evolution includes a project with the Burritt’s Rapids Renewable Energy Association to bring hydroelectricity to the community using the Rideau River. Our efforts here remain focused on making our City for environmentally sound as well as finding financial efficiencies in our operations. Making City buildings more efficient will save taxpayers dollars in the long run. It is a win-win and that is where my focus is. Other Councillors on this group include Councillors’ Fleury, Menard, Kavanagh, Sudds and Dudas. Finally, we have the Official Plan review sponsors group. While I was originally on this as Chair of the Agriculture & Rural Affairs Committee, I have found my way back on it chairing a different committee. Funny how that works out sometimes. Joining Councillors Blais, El-Chantiry, Gower, Tierney and Harder, our focus here is guiding the development of a new Official Plan for the City of Ottawa that projects out to 2046. Being Environment Chair allows me to cast a wide lens on policy development. The reality is that urban sprawl impacts rural areas in more ways than one. As a rural Councillor, my prime ob-

jective will always be protecting agricultural lands. There is an environmental benefit to that as well as helping to protect rural village identities. We are a city of one million residents and growing. Intensification in the urban area as well as in villages is an important tool but it is all easier said than done. While many support the concept of intensification, the story becomes quite different when that intensification occurs in your neighbourhood. How do we plan for the future, recognize the growth that is coming all the while manage our communities through smart growth? That is what is facing us in this Official Plan review. This review will continue right through 2020 and I hope our communities will be engaged in that process. Don’t wait for a development application to get involved. By then, it is usually too late. In addition to these, I also have my regular responsibilities on various committees and boards. Therefore, it is so important to have a great team around me and I am very fortunate for having exactly that.

The MessengerFOCUS ON YOUTH Being OTHS Student Council President a rewarding experience

Name: Melita Wyche Age: 17



School: Osgoode Township High

by Phill Potter

Grade: 12 Parents: Heather and Dennis Wyche Sisters: April (20), OTHS, UNB Fredericton. Violet (20), Canterbury (vocals), Carleton University. Ivy (22), St. Mark, Algonquin College. Pets: Two dogs, Ewok and Pixie, and a cat. Part-time Work: “Cheerleading and tumbling coach at Kemptville Infinity in Kemptville.) Favourite Subjects: “Math and Chemistry. I enjoy doing labs and prob-

lem solving. Since the concepts are not broad, and there isn’t much interpretation to be done, it’s more just problem solving, which is what makes me enjoy those classes the most.” What is your Greatest Accomplishment? “Earning the title of Student Council President at my school. The process was not easy, but I persevered and made it through, even though there were setbacks along the way. It has also been a very rewarding accomplishment, as I’ve gained so many opportunities, and gotten to network with other youth like myself.”

Activities/Interests: “Both inside and outside of school, I enjoy participating in several different sports. These include soccer, futsal, volleyball, coed volleyball, and touch football. I also enjoy traveling and learning about different locations and cultures. I’ve travelled to many places and I find it very interesting how every culture has unique traditions and subcultures. My favourite place is Norway, because there is such beautiful places all over the country and amazing hiking. The next location I wish to travel to is Iceland, because it’s a very open country, with very kind citizens, and lots to see.” Why did you get involved in what you do? “I got involved in Student Council because I saw it as an opportunity to make

a difference in my school, and to get a different perspective on all aspects of the school. I was a cheerleader for 10 years, but I could no longer continue due to concussions, so I turned to coaching. It has given me an opportunity to continue in the sport, even though I can no longer participate in it.” Career Goals: “After high school I hope to go to university somewhere near the east coast; hopefully in kinesiology. My top choice schools are University of New Brunswick in St. John, and Dalhousie in Halifax. After that, I hope to pursue a career in either athletic therapy, or education.” After suffering numerous concussions, Melita Wyche turned to coaching. PHILL POTTER PHOTO

Mullen a free man after receiving sentence of time served One of the accused killers in the 2010 murder of Michael Swan is a free man. Kyle Mullen, 29, was expected to be on trial this week. He was originally found guilty of second degree murder, but won his appeal after it was decided the trial judge made serious errors. Mullen pleaded guilty to the lesser offence of manslaughter, and he was sentenced to time served. Mullen has been in custody since his arrest in February, 2010. Mullen was one of the three men who became

known in the original trial as the “Toronto 3”. Mullen, Kristopher McLellan and Dylon Barnett broke into the home where Swan was living on Moodie Drive near Bankfield Road between Manotick and Richmond, and stole marijuana, cash and electronics. McLellan forced Swan to his knees and shot him, killing the 19-year-old former DoubleA hockey player. Mullen supplied the gun used in the murder. Swan had friends over at his house to watch a 2010 Olympic hockey game

when the three men invaded his home. They had stolen the cell phone of Swan’s girlfriend which had a GPS device. Police were able to track the phone and the three men were arrested while getting gas near Brockville. According to an Ottawa Citizen story written by Gary Dimmock, Mullen expressed remorse and agreed to a statement of facts read in court that implicated himself and Barrhaven man Sam Tsega, a former friend of Swan. Tsega was convicted of manslaughter for his part in organizing the

robbery but won an appeal and is free on bail awaiting trial. Dimmock reported that Mullen’s agreed statement of facts clearly implicates Tsega in the plan. Tsega was a business student and lacrosse player at Carleton University. He was suspended from his classes and removed from the lacrosse team. Tsega is free on bail awaiting a new trial.

Former Double-A minor hockey player Michael Swan was killed in his home in Feb. 2010.

PHARMACY Q: Do I need to get the flu vaccine every year? A: Yes, the flu shot is recommended annually because it only provides protection for 1 year. Although, vaccination is the best protection against the flu, follow preventative measures Pharmacist such as washing hands frequently, sneezing into arm/elbow and getting proper nutrition to stay healthy and stop the spread of the virus. Stay home and rest if you feel like you have symptoms of the flu (fever, cough, sore throat, body aches, weakness). A pharmacist can recommend overthe-counter products that are suitable for you. Or to protect yourself against the flu, pharmacists will be providing flu shots by the end of October.

Q: What is “Sedation Dentistry” or “Sleep Dentistry”? A:

Dentistry performed on a patient with the aid of moderate IV sedation is often referred to as “sleep dentistry” or “twilight sleep”. This can be confusing because it suggests that IV sedation involves being put to sleep but in fact the patient remains conscious and will be able to understand and respond to requests from the dentist. Sedation dentistry is often used for patients who exhibit dental anxiety or phobia, require an extensive amount of time in the chair, have limited time to complete dental work, have difficulty controlling their movements, have very sensitive teeth, have a bad gag reflex or have difficulty achieving profound numbness. IF you have postponed going to the dentist or having dental treatment completed due to any of these reasons, please contact a dentist today to see if they offer “Sedation Dentistry”. DR.

Q: If my dog is healthy, why do wellness blood work? A: Blood and urine tests are important tools for looking at the overall health of your pet. In the results, we can look for early signs of disease or infections. Many problems may not be obvious on a simple physical Dr. Andrew Sparling exam, but if caught early can be D.V.M. successfully treated or controlled, giving your pet a longer and better quality of life. It’s also important to have lab tests performed when a pet is healthy, so there is a baseline to compare results when/if your pet does become ill. Lab tests must be coupled with a complete physical examination and patient history from the owner to be of the most use. Blood work is usually performed when young to have that baseline and then annually once older. Ask your veterinary team what timeline is best for your pet.

Richmond Royals win two straight in CCHL2 Junior hockey play Manotick Messenger Staff The Richmond Royals jumped out to a strong start and cruised to a 7-3 win over the Athens Aeros in their first game of the season back at their home arena. The Royals played their home games at the Goulbourn Rec Centre in September while the 175th Richmond Fair was taking place. They moved back into the Richmond Memorial Centre for Sunday’s game. It didn’t take long for the Royals to set the tone for the game. Ethan Vaslet scored from Noah Diosceghy just 1:53 into the game, and then Matt Gauthier scored from TK Mwamba one minute later for the Royals. Ryan Mann scored a shorthanded goal from Adam Goodfellow at 7:41 of the first. Asa MacFarlane scored from Owen Nevins 20

seconds into the second period before the Aeros mounted a comeback. Liam Silva, Malcolm Brassard and Matthew Hudson all scored for Athens to make it a one goal game. Patrick Yates responded with a goal from Adam Goodfellow and Declan Flanagan to make the score 5-3, and then Dioszeghy notched a goal from Vaselt with just three seconds left in the period to give Richmond a three-goal lead. Nevins put the game out of reach early in the third as he scored from Vaslet and Mwamba. Darien Johnson stopped 49 of 49 shots for the win. The win capped off a perfect weekend for the Royals. On Saturday, Owen Nevins scored a power play goal in the third period from Noah Doiszeghy and Willem Brandt to lift the Royals to a

4-3 win on the road over the Alexandria Glens. Mann opened the scoring early in the first from Goodfellow and MacFarlane, and Dioszeghy scored a shorthanded goal from Flanagan to give the Royals a 2-1 lead. Yates added one in the second from Goodfellow and Brandt, but the Glens came back with a pair in the second to tie the game. The Royals were outshot by the Glens 62-33, but Nevins’ goal stood up as the winner. Josh Lacelle stopped 59 of 62 shots for the win in goal. The Royals have backto-back home games over the Thanksgiving weekend. They host the Ottawa Canadians Sunday and Carleton Place Monday. Both games have a 1:30 p.m. puck drop at the Richmond Memorial Centre.
