LUCIO 1-2-3-4, I decl ar e a Tr ade War




In r etaliation over r ecently added tar iffs on our steel and alum inum , Canada is now im posing its ow n on a slew of item s com ing fr om the US. A w hole list is available on the CBSA w ebsite for you to see, but it includes all sor ts of things includingm eat, coffee and yogour t. Has this change affected you? How about the people ar ound you?

But w hen the second r ound of Tr um p im posed tar iffs on paper cam e about, ever ything changed. Our supplier had no other choice but to r aise their pr ices. For us, it m eant r ethinkingour pr oduct. We had been talking about going to m agazine for m at for m onths; this m ade the decision easier. W ith the NAFTA negotiations not going so w ell, w e had to guess that the situation w ould only get w or se and so, after seven year s in a gr eat r elationship w ith our neighbour s to the South, w e said goodbye. M assena m ay be in another Countr y,but it is as Local as it can be, to us. M any of us have fam ily over ther e. M any of us visit w eekly for var ious r easons. Being a bor der tow n, and united by the M ohaw k Ter r itor y,our ties ar e significant. M assena is like the annoying distant cousin you dr ead to see at fam ily r eunions. He's annoying,but he's still fam ily, w hether you like it or not. And now , M assena is suffer ing. Fam ily is suffer ing. The last tim e I w as at the Walm ar t Super centr e over ther e, I looked ar ound. W her eas m ost of the license plates used to be Canadian, they w er e now har der to find. W her eas you could hear Fr ench navigating thr ough the aisles befor e, that tim e, only English w as hear d. I find it sad that w e w er e pushed in a cor ner and m ade to stop suppor tinga tow n that is in such need. I under stand the r eason for r etaliation, but I hate that w e had to do it. We cut out our cousin. W hat fam ily does that? I still go over , but a lot less. How about you? Have you stopped going acr oss because of the tar iffs?

Gabbing with Gilbert

What's the Big Deal? After all, it's just poop. Why does everyone get so worked up about it?


NEW LOCATION! 11 Balmoral Ave, Cornwall, ON, K6H 3G3 (beside Stradwick?s flooring).

THE SEEKER BEAGLE It seems like everything I do gets me in trouble! Yesterday, I was outside for 30 minutes, hanging out with my pals, Mateo, Trinity, and Ezekiel. After, we all went inside, and I went straight for the dining room. The kids were wondering what I was doing, since there was nothing there to do, but the dining room is where I like to go potty.

I started getting ready to take care of my business, when Mateo yelled at me. He said something along the lines of ?GILBERT, YOU WERE OUTSIDEFOR 30 FREAKING MINUTES, AND YOU INSTANTLY COME IN HERE AND POOP!? So what if I was outside for 30 minutes? Is he expecting me to poop outside? All the humans poop inside, so why shouldn't I be allowed to? The humans treat me like I'm some kind of wild animal, and I don't like it. The smells outside are too distracting! There are a million smells around me. I smell grass, bugs, birds, and not to mention, the goof. He's always distracting me out there! Whether he's barking at something, or trying to bite me, he's always distracting me. Inside, there is no annoying

In my last column, I began to talk about the human ego. This is not only found in egotistic people, but is present in each one of us. The church lady who devotes all of her spare time to helping the congregation may be doing it for the wrong reasons. That friend who has a need to be right, is living in ego. That other friend who always complains of being wrong, is also living in ego. Ego feeds itself. It may take power from being wronged, or from being right. It may feed on helping others (in order to feel superior, or even taken advantage of) or it may be empowered by taking from others. So how do we know when we are acting from ego or from our authentic self? The answer is pretty simple. We don't need to constantly analyze our motives or actions - all we need to do is become aware that our ego is, in fact, alive and well, and that we are not our ego. We are deeper, an authentic, timeless, piece of creation, filled with power. We can hear that power when we listen to our gut feelings. We are a child of the universe, or actually, an important piece of it. Remember, you are not your ego. I like to think that we humans are made of three parts - the emotions or heart, the mind or ego, and the spirit or authentic self. Getting back to the 'Two Wolves' story from my last column, the mind and emotions are often powered by the evil wolf, while the authentic self is the good wolf. Notice that I didn't say our authentic self is powered by the good wolf, but that it IS the good wolf. We each ARE the embodiment of joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion and faith, but our ego loves to keep us blind to that fact. Our ego makes us feel good by comparing us to others. Bob cheated more than I did, so that means I am the better person. No, Mr. Ego, the fact is that Bob and you both cheated and you both did wrong. You are not a better person. How about road rage? "That guy is speeding, what a _____! I never speed." Maybe you don't speed, but perhaps you run all the yellow lights, or have parking tickets. How can we judge someone else when we all have imperfections? Perhaps he was speeding to a hospital, or was angry about just getting fired? It was wrong for him to speed, but even more wrong for you to judge. That is just an example, of course, there are a million other ways our ego loves to make us feel superior to others. The authentic self, on the other hand, loves when others succeed. We are not minimized by someone else's success or good fortune. This week's exercise is to pay attention to your inner voice. When it nags at you for some fault, or points out faults in others, just think the words, 'shut up, ego' and watch what happens. The more you 'see' your own ego, the weaker it becomes, and the more power the good wolf gains. But we are still only at the beginning. Stay tuned for the next installment.

Int er vi ew wi t h Sir en and The Magi ci ans act r ess Hannah Levi en: Speci al guest at Cornwall ?s Comi cFest 2018 Article by Jason Setnyk | Submitted Photo Cornwall Ontario - Actress Hannah Levien is the special guest at Halloween ComicFest 2018 on Saturday, October 27th at the Cornwall Civic Complex. Hannah Levien is best known for her roles in Siren and The Magicians. She has also appeared on episodes of Supernatural, Colony, Bates Motel, The Returned, Reverie and more. On the television show Siren, she plays the recurring character of Janine. "I have the pleasure of playing Janine in Siren - which is a super fun show. Janine is the town-bartender in fictional Bristol Cove. She?s sassy, provocative and a bit naughty! My favorite episode was probably episode 8 - where Xander?s father died. While being a sad episode, the story pulled the whole cast together. And of course, Janine and her boyfriend Calvin (Curtis Lum) had a rather interesting way to grieve," Hannah Levien recalled. Hannah Levien has also played the recurring role of Victoria in The Magicians "I have loved my journey on The Magicians. Victoria is a brave, loyal and strong character. She?s a risk taker and a uniquely talented magician and time-traveler. The cast on The Magicians are fantastic and all unique in their own ways. They bring such a different personality to the screen and story. My favorite episode would be with the mirror bridge in Season 3, where I worked with Marlee Matlin and Felicia Day. There was such an awesome pair, and it was very high stakes as Victoria often finds herself in," Hannah Levien replied. Hannah Levien grew up in Australia and started taking acting classes at the age of 13.

"Australia is a great country - it will always be my home. I?ve always been drawn to storytelling - and theatre is a form of that. When I was 13, I started taking acting classes seriously and was determined to study at Drama school after high school. It?s very competitive to get into those programs, so I knew I had a lot of work to do. I ended up attending the University of Southern Queensland which had a fantastic theatre program. After that, Hannah Levien earned her Masters in Screenwriting and Directing at the University of Sydney. She learned so much by doing that year. "I learned so much by ?doing? that year. Being on set in a different capacity as a Director. I think I learned an appreciation for all the unique talents everyone in the team brings to a film," Hannah Levien observed. Another important role for Hannah Levien is in the award-winning film "The Horseman" which screened worldwide at numerous festivals including SXSW. In it she played teenage runaway Jesse Forteski. "It was such a great experience to share that with the writer and director Steven Kastrissios and the producer Bec Dakin. They both worked tirelessly on that film. It was great to see it reach so many audiences," Hannah Levien noted.

Hannah Levien shares some of her fondest memories and experiences working on other shows. On Supernatural Hannah Levien loved the costume design and playing a demon. "I know it sounds silly, but I loved my costume in this show. Also, I loved Supernatural and always wanted to be a demon in it, so it was cool to actually get to live that," Hannah Levien disclosed. While on Bates Motel, Hannah Levien had the opportunity to work with Freddie Highmore and Vera Farmiga "Bates it was such a treat to work with Freddie and Vera - such fantastic actors. My scene with Freddie was so interesting to watch because he understood his character so well. It was inspiring," Hannah Levien added. On Colony, Hannah Levien worked with executive producer Tim Southam again. "I loved my storyline and the journey I got to go on. It was my second time working with Executive Producer Tim Southam (we met on Bates Motel), and he?s a great Director. The Australia actress now lives in Vancouver, Canada. Hannah Levien explains why. "I love Canada, it?s a great country to live in! I was living in L.A. and started booking work in Vancouver. In the end, I liked it so much, I decided to stay and make it my home. Though I still travel a lot, I love coming back to Vancouver. I?m a huge fan of the outdoors, and as a creator/ actor/ writer I find the landscapes in B.C. so inspiring. It fills me with so many memories," Hannah Levien said. Cont inued on Page 10







"I met M a xine Cole at a summer BBQ at a fr iends house over a ga me of hor se shoes. I watched fr om a dista nce the fluid movements of her whole body a s her ha nd tossed the shoe a ga inst the spike over a nd over until she'd won the ga me. I t wa s like being at the Olympics a nd when I found out she wa s a tea cher , well I just tucked that little seed away for a nother day. Today is that day."

It is an acknow ledgm ent of w hat the Cr eator has given and for ever yone to show gr atitude for these gifts. To w atch her students sm ell a flow er for all its w or th and see their eyes light up w hen they m ake the connection betw een a scientific idea and the M ohaw k cultur e has been the m ost endur ing.


If you?r e inclined to love science, histor y or geogr aphy you m ight know that 1953 w as a ver y good year. In science the Double Helix m odel of DNA w as discover ed. W hile in m edicine the fir st hear t-lung m achine w as used on a hum an, as w as the fir st Polio vaccine. It w as also the year that Thom as Cole and his w ife M ay (Benedict) of Akw esasne, w elcom ed their seventh child-a gir l they called M axine.

M axine talked of finding Peace for the fir st tim e w hen she tur ned o year s befor e star ting at the Fr eedom School. She found balance in healthy r elationships, living in the m om ent and w alking the path of so m any other s. As w e sat in the par k at the end of our inter view I lear ned that this place by the r iver w as w her e M axine had taken her M other to pr ay in the last few year s of her life.

If gr ow ing up w ith all boys gives you anything, being tenacious and cur ious has got to be r ight up ther e. For M axine?s indom itable spir it w as put into pr actice in the com pany of her Tota (Gr eat Aunt), w ho allow ed her to be com pletely her self by encour aging her spir ituality in the M ohaw k cultur e.

And that is w hy the best m om ents w ith fr iends ar e found in natur e. W hether snow shoeing, kayaking or sw im m ing, M axine br ings ener gy into the w or ld w ith a no-fear attitude, suppor ted w ith hum or and laughter. She is the go-to per son for m any. In cr ow ded r oom s or cam ping on silent m ountain r anges, she finds Peace in w hatever com es.

Her M other M ay w as a gifted cook w hose baking pow der biscuits w er e a favor ite am ongst her fam ily. In her 91 year s, she w as a r esour ceful and w ell r ounded per son that loved singing and dancing and visiting people. W ith her str ong w or k ethic inter sper sed w ith stor ytelling, M ay?s legacy to w alk the path of the Haudenosaunee (pr onounced Hoh-denn-shoh-nay) or ?People of the Longhouse? has lit a fir e in her daughter.

DRISCO LL Is It ADHD, LD or is it Primit ive Ref l exes? If your child is impulsive, unable to sit still, has poor motor skills or has difficulty learning? you may suspect ADHD or a learning disability. Yet these symptoms might have nothing to do with a disorder and be occurring because your child?s ?baby brain?didn?t totally disappear. Child development researchers have found that many children are misdiagnosed with ADHD or LD simply because they struggle with attention, learning or impulsivity when in fact retained primitive reflexes are the real culprit. Retained primitive reflexes can also be one of the causative factors in ADHD and Learning Disabilities. Several studies have found that children with ADHD, LD and autism are more likely to have retained primitive reflexes. What are Retained Primitive Reflexes?

Reflexes are automatic, unconscious reactions; if something comes close to your eyes, you blink without thinking. If you stroke a baby's cheek, it will turn its head to feed; it will also wrap its fingers around your finger without being taught. These are primitive reflexes that contribute to survival and enable development during the first year of life. As the baby develops through movement and interaction with its environment, these reflexes should disappear in a specific sequence so that higher order brain levels can develop. If these reflexes do not fully integrate then they are retained primitive

reflexes, meaning reflexes that continue to exist long after they should have disappeared.

A primitive reflex that is retained can prevent the higher brain levels from effectively doing its job. A retained primitive reflex impacts not only the subsequent integration of other primitive reflexes, but overall development of the higher brain levels. It is not uncommon for a child who is struggling to have several retained primitive reflexes. Since primitive reflexes originate in the central nervous system, retained primitive reflexes result in a central nervous system that is underdeveloped, sometimes referred to as neuromotor immaturity. This can lead to problems with learning, behavior, sensory processing, cognition and motor skills. Next time, I will write about the signs of retained primitive reflexes, and how they can be integrated so your child can better learn and behave! learn more schedule a free 20-minute Star Student Breakthrough session.

Micro News

It 'st i m e. Ste ve

f or M ayor of Cor n w all


Although I usually write about computer technology, today I thought I would share some good news. According to a report by a deep research scientist, efficient gas powered vehicles are likely to be more environmentally friendly than battery powered electric vehicles. Actually, this is excellent news, since the Ford government has cancelled rebates for electric and hybrid vehicles. The research went beyond the common belief that electrically powered vehicles are better for the environment, and took into account the other costs related to running an electric vehicle. For those of us who drive a fuel efficient vehicle, the news is indeed good. If you have a vehicle that provides an average fuel consumption of 7 litres per 100 km, your vehicle is about as "green" as one that is battery powered. On the highway, my Elantra's fuel consumption is between 4.4 and 4.6 litres per 100 km, making it greener than an electric vehicle. My Elantra is definitely no marvel of engineering; it is an inexpensive, very basic car. Imagine if more research went into improving gasoline power vehicles.



Another way to reduce emissions is to drive smaller vehicles. Over the past 18 years that I have lived in Ottawa, I have noticed that SUVs, vans, and large trucks have become increasingly popular. Very recently, I did a rough count to determine the percentage of these larger vehicles sharing the road. Although I admit my data collection was quite casual, it would seem that about 40% of the non-commercial vehicles on the road are these huge, gas-guzzlers. You don't need a Lexus NX 300 or Jeep Renegade to get around in Ottawa. Even the Toyota RAV4 Hybrid uses about twice the fuel as my lowly Elantra. The Cruze LT, Forte, Corolla, Jetta, and Civic are some reasonably sized vehicles that are fuel efficient. If less gas-guzzlers were on the roads, emissions would decrease. Smaller vehicles use less fuel, take less energy, and use less materials to build. Maybe our government should create some sort of incentive to dissuade people from buying the guzzlers. Sure, it makes sense to drive a 4x4 if you live in a rural area, but urban assault vehicles are definitely not necessary in the cities. If you are concerned about the environment, and want to be as green as possible, consider a fuel efficient, gas powered vehicle the next time you are shopping for a new ride.

Oh Wo n d r o u s Li g h t By Sylvie O?Rou r k e A gentle breeze ruffles through my hair as I stand on the shore watching the light slowly fade from the sky. It is a warm evening but the air is always better by the open water. My canoe is fully loaded and ready for an overnight stay a few kilometers downwind. I am waiting for the rest of our group to arrive so that we can wander into the sunset together. This is my first canoe-camping experience. It appeals to me because it is close to home, of short duration, and relatively simple. There are no meals to plan as supper has already been consumed and we will be back in time for breakfast. We require only a few snacks, a change of clothes, a tent, and some sleeping gear. I am amazed at the rest of my group who manage to fit everything they need into kayaks. With my big canoe and the place that it affords, I feel like I?ve won a loge box seat at the theater for the evening. We step into the St. Lawrence which is surprisingly warm and launch towards our mystery


island. A short paddle through restless waves takes us under a bridge to an area sheltered somewhat by the islands. The water is calmer here but we have to be careful moving forward because there are shallow areas from which occasional rocks or stumps jut out to surprise us. The geese and ducks use many of them as resting spots and inadvertently assist us in our journey under the dimming sky. To our left the sun is setting in a display of orange, yellow and pink. The crests of the waves take on its glow while the purple clouds, lying low, seem to be mimicking the darkened tree line. We definitely scored the best tickets for this performance. Before long, we shift our focus to our right where the moon is making its debut. A softened shade of coral, it slowly ascends and distracts us momentarily from its solar competition across the way. The moon, despite its fullness, will need to take it up a notch to capture an audience.


We arrive to our deserted island just in time for the intermission. Although there are three campsites here, only ours is occupied tonight. That is the beauty of this little known, unadvertised local gem. We have the island all to ourselves. We set up camp and relax for a while by the glow of our campfire surrounded by nothing but wind and the occasional cry from a gull. We set off onto the river once more as the much anticipated second act is about to begin. The moon does not disappoint. It hovers high above centre stage, a globe of luminescence glistening through the infinite obscurity and casting its golden beam onto the gently lapping waves below. We drift beneath it, our paddles suspended, absorbing the blissful scene reflecting before us. A sense of peace envelops us. Reluctantly, we must tear ourselves away and paddle back to camp. Sunrise will come soon enough and the curtain will rise to the light of a new day. For more information about the Cornwall Outdoor Club, visit our website at or like us on Facebook.

Have a look through many MLS listings and you will see terms like: ?Secondary Suites?, ?Basement Apartments?, ?Accessory Apartments?, ?Granny Flats?, ?In-Law Suites?, ?Granny Suites? or ?Nanny Suites?. Whether a buyer is looking for a unit for an aging parent to stay nearby or to make some extra money to help make the mortgage payments or cash flow, a secondary unit can be a great solution. What are second units? Second units are self-contained residential units with a private kitchen, bathroom facilities and sleeping areas within a single family or semi-detached home. Caut ions about Purchasing a Propert y wit h a Second Unit 1. Regardless of where they are located, second units must comply with health, safety and municipal property standards, including but not limited to, the Ontario Building Code, the Fire Code and municipal property standards by-laws. In addition, a building permit may be required to establish a second unit depending on whether alterations to the house are needed. As such, buyers considering purchasing a property with a Second Unit or homeowners considering establishing a second unit should contact their municipality prior to doing so. 2. In many cases, illegally-operated secondary suites also go unreported to insurance providers. If a Secondary Unit is not reported to your insurance provider you run the risk of not being covered in the event of a loss. 3. In addition, your lawyer will be required to order a work order search since you are technically purchasing a multi-unit residential property. This results in a longer timeline, a few more dollars and, possibly, some setbacks to deal with in order to close on the anticipated closing day. 4. Be sure to speak to your accountant if you will be receiving rent from the second unit. There are several tax implications for receiving rental income not the least of which is having to claim Capital Gains on the sale of your personal home. 5. A final word of caution, if one (or both) of the units are currently tenanted, be sure to ask for vacant possession of the unit that you will be living in. If the tenant in the extra unit is staying, be sure to ask for a copy of the lease to make sure your rights are protected. If the tenant in the second unit is also leaving, make sure you require vacant possession of that unit as well. Banks will no longer allow the flexibility of a tenant to ?move out in 60 days? in order to qualify for a residential mortgage with 5% down payment. On closing day, the discovery of a ?Rent Adjustment? by your lawyer will immediately cancel your mortgage if the lender was not aware that a tenant would be remaining in any of the units. So What Does This Mean f or You? If you would like to discuss how much mortgage you qualify for and look at different scenarios of qualifying with a secondary suite rental income, I would love to have an in depth look at your finances and provide you with mortgage options!

from the Seeker Team

I can't believe that we started our business 38 years ago, then called The Cook's Delight. October 1, 1980.It is such a pleasure to still continue to serve you. I thank you for your patronage and friendship over all of these years. We are still a caring family run business, with myself, my husband Gary, our daughter Tammy and our grandson Jacob working to help you in all of your cooking and baking needs. We carry local beef, chickens, honey and summer savory and herbal remedies, over 200 spices and herbs, bakeware and kitchen gadgets and all baking ingredients. We want to support our hard working farmers buying local whenever possible. And I have been writing cooking columns for over 25 years. That's a lot of recipes! Gary is never bored trying out all of my new meals. Now, back to my column! Once again, my friend and fellow foodie , Stephen McMenamen brought me in a sample of his latest baking. A super chocolatey muffin made with our store's decadent dark cocoa and pure dark chocolate chips inside and on top of the muffin. Inside the muffins were whole wheat flour, ground flax seed, coconut oil, grated zucchini and carrots. So healthy and tasty too! His recipe makes 24 muffins. If you have extra grated carrots and zucchini, make another batch while you are at it. You will be glad to find them in your freezer in the winter, all ready for breakfast or to take to work or school for a healthy snack or lunch. Make some of these muffins and freeze them for breakfast on Thanksgiving for your families visiting. Thanks Stephen for sharing and caring! Happy Thanksgiving with all of your family!
