Glengables gets its park J.P. ANTONACCI

The Kemptville 73’s are stuck in a rut. They are working on a seven game losing streak that won’t quit.


WOMEN’S FALL CLASSIC Twenty-four teams from across Ontario, Quebec, the Maritimes the U.S. and Switzerland converged on Kemptville last week.

CROSSING PATHS, SHARING MEMORIES An unlikely duo: Two men born 20 years apart and full provinces away from Kemptville have discovered they have much in common. Dr. George Fisher, 94, served for three and a half years on the HMCS Assiniboine during the Second World War, the same ship his friend Ed Chajkowski, 74, would retire from after 35 years in the navy. Fisher was born in Sackville, New Brunswick, and Chajkowski was born in Montreal, but both men have lived in Kemptville for many years and are active members of the Kemptville Legion. The Legion held its annual Remembrance Day church service on Sunday, Nov. 6, this year at St. James Anglican Church. See page 6 for story.

Residents in a Kemptville subdivision have struck a deal with the municipality to create a park in their neighbourhood. Coming on the heels of an agreement to turn most of the vacant green space in Settlers’ Grant into a forested walking trail, residents of the Glengables development along County Road 43 east of Actons Corners voted to have the municipality sell two acre-sized lots on Tamarack Circle at market value and use 20 per cent of the proceeds to create a 3.5-acre community park. The proceeds are likely to be about $35,000, which will pay for a grass field fit for sports, picnics and community gatherings. The municipality had initially planned to turn the entire six-acre green space into a cul-de-sac and invest the proceeds into parks and recreation projects elsewhere in North Grenville, as is standard practice for new developments. Residents were blindsided by news of the municipality’s intention, and packed a tense Committee of the Whole meeting on April 7 to voice their displeasure. They complained that selling all the green space would leave the roughly 600 residents of the Glengables and nearby Stonehaven developments without a place to gather and play. Several residents later met with municipal staff to discuss how to keep at least some of the green space as a community park. A survey subsequently mailed to all Glengables residents laid out four options: keep the existing green space undeveloped, sell two lots and use the proceeds to turn the remaining land into a park, sell three lots and use proceeds similarly, or create a four-lot cul-de-sac and use the proceeds to build a smaller but fully outfitted park.

Immigration is the driving force behind any country’s growth. Present-day Canadians owe much to the last several generations of immigrants who came to Canada looking for a new life and a fresh start. Immigration is again playing a key role in shaping Canada, representing 100 per cent of our current labour force growth while forecasts indicate that international migrants will be our country’s only source of population growth by the year 2030, according to Leeds & Grenville Immigration Partnership. The Leeds & Grenville Immigration Partnership has organized a town hall meeting on Nov. 17, at the University of Guelph Kemptville campus, conference room 1 W.B. George, from 6-8 pm. Anyone with an interest in immigration is invited to attend. A light dinner will be served. “A town hall meeting will give the community an opportunity to come together and discuss the positive impact that immigration can have in and around North Grenville, and some of the ways that we can achieve that potential,” said Matthew Raby, the Immigration Partnership’s Program Manager. “Our Program is currently focused on developing a regional strategy for the attraction and settlement of newcomers to Canada. Judi Baril, Executive Director of the United Way Leeds & Grenville said, “Immigration is particularly important in rural regions such as Leeds & Grenville.” Population forecasts show that Canadian workers are not replacing ourselves, and we are at risk of negative net growth in the notso-distant future, Baril explained. “To ensure our economy remains sustainable and prosperous, it is vital that we work together to develop a strategy for the attraction and settlement of newcomers that builds on the strengths and opportunities of our region,” she said. Anyone who would like to attend the town hall meeting on immigration in and around North Grenville, please contact Matthew Raby by emailing diversity., or calling 613342-8889. Registration is limited to 40 participants.

Townhall meeting looks at Canadian immigration

Kemptville Advance - November 10 2011



The real war has just begun


n Remembrance Day, we honour the fallen soldiers who lie in Flanders Fields and near battlefields around the globe. We thank those veterans whose presence at the National War Memorial in Ottawa and at cenotaphs throughout the country reminds us of the sacrifices that make our freedom possible. Gathered near Parliament Hill, amid the pipes and parades, it’s easy to overlook the memorial itself. But take a good look at the bronze figures walking through the soaring granite arch. Guided by the winged figures of Peace and Freedom, they leave the guns of war behind and wearily make their way to what they hope will be a peaceful future. Now look even closer, at their faces. Are these the same boys and girls who left their farms and towns as fresh-faced teens to take on the world? No. They seem to have aged decades in just a few years. The sculptor has captured their fatigue, their hollow eyes and spent spirits. And even this powerful rendering is a sympathetic portrayal of the true cost of war. As Canadians celebrate veterans and honour their service, we would do well to remember

those faces. The soldiers now returning from Afghanistan might not be so dramatically changed in appearance, but inside, many have aged decades in just a few months. Many more do not carry in their hearts the peace and hope for the future the monument symbolizes. It is well and good to rename highways and make speeches. But society – and government in particular – must be willing to get into the trenches and deal with the less public, much thornier issues of mental health, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, and reintegration to “normal” society for veterans who left as innocents and returned broken in body and spirit. The government must match its grand rhetoric with ample funding to rehabilitate wounded soldiers and educate those who don’t yet understand the demons they grapple with. But Veterans Affairs programs are being cut, and the opposition’s investigation into those cuts has been stifled by government MPs. Adding the dates of the Afghan mission to the war memorial will hardly signal its end. Our soldiers have fought and suffered; the country must in turn fight for them, and embrace them, now that they are home again.


Our self-serving bureaucracies


omewhere along the way, large organizations begin putting their own interests ahead of the people they serve. It happens everywhere – in private companies, in government, even in the non-profit sector. It’s why everything takes so long and nobody answers the phone. You see it all the time, although you don’t always recognize it. Organizations begin to do things for their own convenience, rather than the convenience of the public. It is most dramatic in government, because government’s only function is to serve the public. The recent kerfuffle over public spaces at Library and Archives Canada is a classic example. For years, several ground floor rooms and a medium-sized auditorium have been rented out to community groups, large and small, at a modest cost. The Library even renovated its auditorium in 1994, to improve its acoustics and make it more comfortable, an apparent sign of continuing commitment to public programs. Then the Library’s own public programming, including some outstanding musical and literary events, virtually disappeared, presumably for the usual budgetary reasons. Nevertheless, LAC continued to make its rooms available to


community groups. A recent news story says that 350 events hosted by 45 different groups will have been held at the Library by years’ end. That could change, if the government does not react to public pressure. LAC announced recently that Public Works and Government Services Canada (PWGSC) would take control of the ground floor bookings starting in January. According to the announcement, the government would charge community groups market rental rates (translation: higher) and demand that groups wanting to use the auditorium and meeting rooms get permission from Public Works Minister Rona Ambrose. Some vague security concerns were cited, along with a suggestion that the government might need those rooms for itself because of a shortage of meeting spaces in the capital. Both arguments

were greeted with skepticism by the affected groups – the government needs more meeting spaces? Why not go to Bridgehead? Or, better yet, hold fewer meetings. The government has begun backtracking and the final outcome of this particular struggle will take a while. Meanwhile it is useful to consider the words of a spokesperson for LAC, a contender for bureaucratic confusobabble of the year: “LAC is not a department that is specialized in property management, so it was logical that it be transferred to PWGSC, the department that has both the responsibility and expertise in this area, of which LAC has always been a tenant.” Roughly translated, what this means is that the public was becoming an inconvenience – you know, coming through the door, going into the rooms, sitting on the chairs. Serving the public took a certain amount of effort and it would be much easier if the government just served itself. Serving themselves is what more and more large organizations are doing, both in government and in business. When you go into a big store and can’t find any staff, do you think that was done with you in mind? Do you think someone

wanted to serve you better when they replaced human attendants in parking garages with machines? It certainly didn’t serve the economy better, at a time of high unemployment. Is it for you that the voice mail maze has replaced human receptionists? Is it for you that airlines now charge for checked baggage? Is it for you that computers telephone you at home? Do you think gas stations switched to self-serve for you? And is it really for your convenience, despite what the sign says, that you are being videotaped in stores? The public has reacted quite strongly to the Library and Archives changes. But there’s lots more work to be done, although we might be videotaped doing it.

The Accidental Farmwife Diana Fisher likes to have his nose rubbed and he comes right over to the side of the stall to be petted. I brought him a handful of sweet feed this morning to reward him for his good behaviour. He will have to stay in his stall until December, when he will be released to breed the females. We can’t put him in the barn with Rambo, or they might start fighting in the aisles. Love is in the air this time of year. The animals can smell that strange perfume and it makes them a little crazy. Speaking of the ewes, we found the ringleader

who was encouraging the herd to go running down the road on a daily basis. Gretel was easy to spot, as she had burrs all over her head from crawling under fences. She’s also extremely loud, with a voice that sounds suspiciously like my old enemy, the lamb squasher. I should get the book out and compare ear tag numbers. Anyway, she is currently serving as a companion to Rambo, who doesn’t really mind being alone but certainly prefers to have the company of a female if possible. And just like that, he doesn’t seem to stink anymore. It’s as though he has stopped applying that awful ewe-attracting cologne, because it worked. He caught one. I know I said I wasn’t going to write about my cats anymore but I feel this is the end of an era. I have no more tiny kittens in my basement. Since April, I have adopted out no less than 43 kittens after stealing them from 10 female barn cats. Sheila, our barn cat-turned-house cat, was

a real trooper. Not only did she nurse her own four kittens but she also nursed kittens from two other litters that I had stolen and brought into the house to tame. As I adopted them out one-by-one and sometimes two-by-two, Sheila would sit at my feet and let out this litany of complaints. I think it went something like, “You bring these cats in here, force me to feed them when they don’t even smell like mine, then just as I start to get used to them you take them away.� I learned to let her smell each kitten just as it was being packed up and shipped out. That seemed to work, and she no longer spent the evening calling and checking under fur-

niture for her missing charges. And now it’s just Sheila and Shamus, a six-month-old male in the house. They have similar markings and are probably siblings from two separate seasons.

We have a new addition to the Fisher farm. The Farmer brought a Suffolk ram home in the back of his truck last week. As he put the tailgate down and the ram hopped out onto the grass, I asked my husband what we should call our new sheep. Funny how this is always my first thought but it doesn’t occur to the Farmer that the animal needs a name. “Uh, let’s see. He has floppy ears,� the Farmer replied. Well we couldn’t call him Floppy. That would just give the poor ram a complex. So I named him Philip. We put Philip in the horse stall for now, after installing additional barriers so he couldn’t hop out over the feeders to freedom. The first night all he did was bawl until he was hoarse. We should have thought ahead. Sheep hate to be alone. The next morning we found a nice little ewe to keep him company. There might be a lamb or two born ahead of season in February–March. Philip is very tame. He

Veterans, Legionnaires gather to remember to us to remember them,” said Dudka, who served five years in the air force in the 1980s before working on base as a civilian. “I’m sure if any of those soldiers or police officers or firefighters knew that they were going to die that day, they would still do it. They would be out there defending our country, protecting our citizens.” Dudka noted that they

haven’t had to work as hard in the past few years to remind people to honour Canada’s veterans and fallen soldiers – that remembrance and respect for those that have died is alive and well. “I’ve never seen so many poppies. I’ve never seen so much remembrance, and I believe it’s because of (the mission in) Afghanistan that people are reminded

to remember,” she said. Veterans young and old mingled outside the church on Clothier Street before the service began with a “colour party,” where Legion members carried various ceremonial and symbolic flags into the church for display during the service. A member of the youth congregation read John McCrae’s famous poem “In Flanders Fields” as well as a poem written by her great-aunt about the brother she lost in the First World War. Two navy veterans, a full 20 years apart in age, have become longtime friends through the

Kemptville Legion after serving on the same ship, the HMCS Assiniboine, although at different times. New Brunswick native Dr. George Fisher, 94, served on the Assiniboine for three and a half years during the Second World War before becoming a veterinarian and settling in Kemptville more than 40 years ago. Ed Chajkowski, a 74-year-old Montrealer, retired from the same ship after 35 years of service in the navy. He has lived in Kemptville for 36 years. Remembrance Day ceremonies will take place across the region on Thursday, Nov. 11 at various times. Visit for complete listings.

Legion president Joanne Dudka said the annual service, which takes place in a different Kemptville church each year, is a way to remind residents to remember those who have died for their country on Nov. 11.




About 20 veterans, Legion members and Legion supporters gathered at St. James Anglican church on Sunday, Nov. 6 for the Kemptville Legion’s annual Remembrance Day service. Each year the Legion holds a special service in one of Kemptville’s

churches, rotating to a different congregation each year. Legion president Joanne Dudka said the day, while not an official Remembrance Day ceremony, helps remind people in the community to recall during Remembrance week those who gave their lives for Canada. “Those that have died, whether in war or as police and firefighters, it’s up

Trapped in their snowbound mansion, the Ralstons and their eccentric guests must contend with a murder, a madman, and a sinister nursery rhyme in Kemptville Players Inc.’s performance of Agatha Christie’s classic whodunit, The Mousetrap, staged Nov. 3 to 6 before packed houses at Leslie Hall in Kemptville. All’s well that ends well, as the snow cleared, the police got their killer, and audiences went home happy after another successful KPI production.

Get to Know Your Chamber of Commerce Did you know that Your Chamber’s Events are open to anyone? One of the many roles of a Chamber is to provide Education to its community. Chamber events have a Chamber member rate and what we like to refer to as a Future Member rate. However, depending on the Topic the Chamber does open some events to ‘all’ at Chamber member rates. Did you know that Your Chamber connects its members with the community? This assists in providing information about our non-profits to our business community so they can decide who and what they wish to participate in to support that ‘cause’.

Kemptville Advance - November 10 2011



Low water levels and overzealous waterfront residents have made life difficult for an important crop that grows in the South Nation Watershed. Wild rice fields that grow along the riverbanks provide a home for the watershed’s frogs, fish and turtles, and double as a food source for migratory birds and muskrats. But what the winter ice doesn’t uproot, residents often pluck out while clearing their properties to the shoreline come springtime, said South Nation Conservation (SNC) senior forestry technician Chris Craig. “So what’s happening is, there’s just not a lot of vegetation growth in the water,” he said. No vegetation means less shelter and food for animals, and less oxygen in the water. The stalk of the wild rice plant splits as it grows out of the water, trapping oxygen inside the sheaves. “Every time the plant moves, it releases a couple bubbles into the water, so it adds oxygen into the water as it’s growing,” Craig explained. Each fall, SNC staff and volunteers team up with Ducks Unlimited and Plenty Canada to harvest and replant the rice throughout parts of the 4,000 square-km watershed as a way to improve water quality and restore wildlife habitat. At harvest time, volunteers and staff paddle down the river, a canoe on each side of the bank. The harvester knocks the grains of rice off the plants and into the canoe using a paddle or long stick. Volunteers also get a close-up look at wildlife conservation and management techniques.

A lack of nutrients in the water and fluctuating water levels – such as those caused by this season’s drought conditions – negatively affect the plant’s growth, and can result in what is called fractured rice, which is difficult to harvest and replant. Non-fractured rice grows in a tightly packed grain stock that resists the wind and is easily harvested, while fractured rice falls off the stalk at the slightest disturbance. As the rice grain waits to be replanted, it is stored in bags in the river so the embryos can still germinate. During planting season – which is now underway – workers walk through the shallows, hand-spreading the seed, which settles over the winter and begins to grow in the spring. These conservation efforts are paying off. Last year, 40 pounds of wild rice – both the northern and southern varieties – were harvested from the Payne River tributary. This year, the harvest rose to 100 pounds, thanks in part to better weather. One day, Craig hopes the harvest will generate food for Plenty Canada, an Algonquin non-profit organization that will use the rice as an ingredient in traditional foods. “That’s what the goal is, but it’s not just for the food source,” he said, adding that expanding the rice fields also helps limit the spread of invasive plant and fish species such as purple loosestrife and carp. A wild rice public education campaign isn’t needed at this time, Craig said, but he does ask watershed residents not to rip out or disturb the rice plants by the shoreline. The fish and fowl also appreciate it.

Vandalism at local school OPP POLICE BLOTTER

It was a rocky week for education as someone used a rock to smash a window at St. Michael Catholic High School in Kemptville on Nov. 5, and a day earlier an unknown number of culprits spray painted words and pictures at the construction site of the new North Grenville District High School on Concession Road. The OPP is investigating.



Stormont Dundas and Glengarry OPP remind residents and motorists that damaging or removing road signs are criminal offences. Removing a sign can create confusion on the roads, and even result in collisions and injury. Damaging a sign could lead to a charge of mischief, while removing one is considered theft. It is also a crime to posses a stolen street sign. The OPP asks anyone who sees someone removing or damaging any road signs to call their local OPP detachment or Crime Stoppers (1-800-222-TIPS) and report the incident.

It will be anything but an easy ride for a 16-year-old male from Russell who faces theft charges. The teen was arrested by OPP on Oct. 28 around 1 a.m. in connection with the theft of a motorcycle from a Winchester residence two days prior. Officers discovered that the youth was bound by conditions from a previous police incident, and charged him with theft under $5,000 and two counts of failure to comply with undertaking. The accused appeared in Cornwall on Oct. 28 for a bail hearing.

North Grenville at the branch restaurant on Nov. 14 at 6:45 p.m., Doug Hendry, a community-minded problem solver and teacher at Kemptville Campus, explores some of what we have achieved using the reserves of oil, and looks at whether peak oil is a problem or might in fact be an opportunity. Everyone is welcome to attend this free presentation. A light buffet, coffee and sweets by donation, as well as a cash bar, will be available.


However, we have come to the point where most of the easy-to-get oil has been scooped up and used, and the world’s dependency on oil has never been greater. How will our way of life change should production fail to meet demand? Can we transition away from something so fundamental to life in the snowy northern hemisphere? In The Upside of Peak Oil: why it isn’t all downhill from here, presented by Sustainable



Produced over a geological timeframe, oil is a once-in-a-planet’s gift to the species that worked out how to extract, purify and utilize it. What it has allowed us to do is truly remarkable, both good and bad. It has transformed our social structure, our work habits, our food network: almost everything we now take for granted would have been totally alien to our forebears who celebrated Queen Victoria’s Diamond Jubilee in Kemptville in 1897.

North Grenville Sustainable North Grenville discusses peak oil students aim for the top


Volunteer drivers wanted to give back to community When Jan Maydan retired in April of 2010, she wanted to volunteer her services. A connection to Thora Pugh, the president of the Lanark, Leeds and Grenville Unit of the Canadian Cancer Society, led Jan to help with data entry at the local office in Perth. “My working life was really stressful,” she explained. “I used to drive a lot for work when I lived out west, and I heard that (the Canadian Cancer Society) needed more drivers.” Maydan, who lives in Almonte, now coordinates volunteer drivers in the Mississippi Mills area, matching drivers with patients who need rides to cancer treatment in Ottawa. Jan’s husband, Mike, is a prostate-cancer survivor and also now a volunteer driver. He started in the spring, while he was still working with the federal government, and retired in September. “It’s something you can do for people who have cancer,” Jan explained. “If you know someone (who has cancer), you can’t operate on them, you can’t fix them, but you can,” she added, “help other people in the same situation.” As drivers, the Maydans have gotten to know some of the people well as they drive them to treatments. “You treat them like you hope you’d get treated in that situation,” Mike stressed, pointing out that drivers try to adjust the music, heat or air, and conversation to their passengers. “Some people are scared of cancer, too – it’s a good way to deal with it, a positive sort of way. “A lot of times, people want to have a normal conversation.” The Canadian Cancer Society is always looking for more drivers to lighten the load on the current roster of 40 drivers in the Lanark, Leeds & Grenville area, including the Maydans. New drivers take a buddy drive with an experienced driver to show them the routes and help them get accustomed to the drives. Drivers receive mileage for their trips, which changes depending on gas prices. The average trip costs the Canadian Cancer Society about $60, which is why it launched its Wheels of Hope campaign, with a goal of $25,000. At last count, the campaign was almost at

the halfway mark. The number of drives in a week or month depends on the need, with Society drivers providing more than 3,900 rides last year. Depending on the length of treatment, drivers can stay at the hospital or drop off their passengers and leave until treatments have finished. Jan likes to visit her daughter and grandchildren in Ottawa, while other drivers go shopping or occasionally stay at the hospital through the treatment period. Drivers also make one-way trips, to take patients to the lodge where they stay for a week during treatments, and to pick up those patients at the end of a treatment. Many drivers will leave their passengers with a cellphone number to call when their appointment is finished. “The Irving Greenberg Centre at the Queensway-Carleton (Hospital) is a nice place to spend some time,” Jan noted. As a five-year cancer survivor, Mike had his own reasons for volunteering as a driver. “I felt like it was something good to return back to the system,” he said. He and Jan lived in Ottawa while he went through cancer treatments, and as a government employee, he was able to take time off. Still, he and Jan realize that many people in rural areas need the service that volunteer drivers provide. If you would like to volunteer your time to become a volunteer driver or donate money to help get a local cancer patient to their cancer treatments you can call (613) 267-1058 or 1 800 367-2913 or contribute online at The Lanark, Leeds & Grenville Unit of the Canadian Cancer Society is pleased to partner with Metroland Media, Lake 88.1 FM and BrockNews as sponsors of Wheels of Hope.

The local deer population is on the move this time of year, crossing rural roads and increasing the danger to themselves and passing motorists. To avoid collisions, reduce speed and be extra vigilant during morning (dawn) and evening (dusk) commutes, as visibility is reduced and wildlife are more active. Keep an eye out for deer crossing signs, and use high beams and scan the ditch area by the highway when driving at night. Deer seldom run alone; if you see one, chances are there will be more. If you need to avoid deer on roadways, do not swerve. Brake firmly and stay in your lane so as not to lose control of your vehicle.

73’s Captain Ben Hutton laces up for Canada East. Ben Hutton, the Captain of the Kemptville 73’s, earned a spot on the team representing Canada East at this week’s 2011 World Junior A Challenge. The 18 year old hails from Prescott and played in the CCHL Top Prospects game last year. The tournament is being held in Langley, BC this week. Hutton is one of five players selected from the CCHL. The other players were Mac Weegar of the Nepean Raiders, Kevin Lough of the Cumberland Grads, and Tylor and Tyson Spink of the Cornwall Colts. The rest of the team has been selected from the four leagues from Northern Ontario (NOJHL), Ontario (OJHL), Quebec (LHJAAAQ) and the Maritimes (MHL). Canada East

Nepean jumped out to a quick start by scoring four times in the first twelve and a half minutes to open up a 4-0 lead. Kemptville resident, Logan Giesbrecht, picked up two assists on the goals. With just sixteen seconds left in the first, Alex Bouchey notched his first of the season for Kemptville. The goal was set up by Hiio Herne and Daniel Lacroix. Nepean added one more goal in the second. The third period was scoreless and the Raiders cruised to a 5-1 victory. The two losses on the weekend run the current winless streak to 17

In regular season action, Kemptville faced the Pembroke Lumber Kings at the North Grenville Municipal Centre on Friday, Nov. 4. Prior to the game, Kemptville traded Keegan Rowe for two players from the Ottawa Junior Senators. Acquired in the deal were defenseman Brad Moore and centre Matt Rosebrook. The Kings opened the scoring just 2:30 into the game on a goal by Liam Biard. But with just 0:02 left on the clock, the newest member of the team tied it up for the 73’s. Matt Rosebrook got his second of the season with the assists going to Eric Malloy and Cedric Lacroix. In the second, Pembroke went ahead on a goal by J J Hart and

Sheryl Dobenko from the Rideau Curling Club throws a rock during Friday’s action at the Royal LePage OVCA Women’s Fall Classic in Kemptville last week. The event drew 24 teams from across Ontario, Quebec, the Maritimes, and as far as Minnesota and Switzerland. Sherry Middaugh of Coldwater, ON, won two tough playoff matches before claiming the championship and the $5,000 purse with a 7-2 win over Ottawa’s Jenn Hanna on Sunday, Nov. 6.

TOP CURLERS VISIT NORTH GRENVILLE It was four days of nail-biting action as top curlers converged on the North Grenville Curling Club. “The women who participate every year in the Royal LePage OVCA Women’s Fall Classic are all incredible athletes. However, what impresses fans even more is that these world class curlers are true ambassadors of their sport. They always give the fans moments to remember both on and off the ice,” said tournament co-chair Jim Dolan.
