Opinion Earth Hour shut down
record number of countries and municipalities signed up for this year’s Earth Hour. In communities around the world, citizens turned off their lights at 8:30 p.m. to bring attention to climate change. Earth Hour, Now in its fifth year, is considered to be the largest voluntary event in worldwide. Yet early results suggested while more countries signed on, fewer people turned off their lights this year. All around Windsor and Essex County, homes and businesses alike powered down one by one in hopes to shed some light on the ever-growing concern over the global climate. But the shutting off didn’t shake up the area any more than what is expected for a weekend evening in March. Earth Hour saw electricity demand fall 2.1 per cent in Ontario, or 360 megawatts. That drop is less than the four per cent drop in 2010. Earth Hour started in 2007 in Sydney, Australia the World Wildlife Fund when lights went off in 2.2 million homes and more than 2,000 businesses to raise consciousness about global warming. Since then, the event's gone global, with more than 50 million people participating in 35 countries in 2008, and landmarks such as Caesars Windsor shutting off its exterior lights, Toronto's CN Tower, the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco and the Colosseum in Rome standing in darkness. Although it is hard for anyone to believe that by simply shutting down for one hour, one day per year will hardly cause any significant reduction in energy consumption, you cannot deny that the purpose of Earth Hour is not to do that but in turn to be symbolic. Symbolism can lead to change; by repeating what others are doing could in fact raise enough awareness to save Mother Earth. So the critics who are also the skeptics need to get on board and turn off their lights.
Fixed-term elections ith Canadians set to head to the polls on May 2 for the fourth time in seven years, perhaps it is time to amend Bill C-16 and make it practically impossible for federal election calls to be made so frequently – even by minority governments. The purpose of Bill C-16, which Parliament passed in November 2006, was to set general election dates – in this case, on the third Monday in October every four years beginning October 19, 2009. However, the bill only sets a limit on the maximum amount of time between elections. It still gives the prime minister the opportunity to request that a government be dissolved by the Governor General and an election called if it is deemed necessary. That is what happened in September 2008 – more than one year before Bill C-16 was even scheduled to kick in – and that is what has happened last week. This practice of fixed-term elections has been adopted by seven of the 10 provinces, including Ontario, as well as the Northwest Territories. British Columbia was the first to pass it in 2001. What Canada needs is a set timetable of general election dates in which a vote is held every four years, no sooner, no later. If polls are accurate, this is what the majority of Canadians would already prefer. Aside from the millions of dollars it would save Canadian taxpayers and provide stability and security rather than unpredictability to our federal political system, fixed-term elections would also allow a government time to develop their strategies properly without the threat of being taken down. Perhaps this is what it will take for governing and opposing parties to exercise a bit more cooperation that has been severely lacking in recent years.

Screenshot from a Conservative attack ad that appeared in January of this year. The ad accused the Liberals of seeking to form a coalition government.
The positive effect of negative political ads T
he ground has yet to thaw in most of Canada, but the political mudslinging has already begun. We can expect more now that the federal government has fallen and an election has been called for May 2. Canadians, a normally restrained and civil lot (at least off the hockey ice), have historically had weaker stomachs than their southern neighbours when it comes to strident and personal attack ads in the political arena. In fact, on the whole, the electoral rhetoric in Canada has tended to be fairly bland by American standards. But it’s a porous border; while Americans got Justin Bieber we’ve imported a bloodier form of politicking. The Conservative Party’s most recent round of pre-election partisan advertising portrayed Liberal leader Michael Ignatieff as “reckless”, “dangerous”, and downright un-Canadian to boot and asserted that “He didn’t come back for you.” The ads were referring to the fact that Ignatieff was living in Massachusetts and teaching at Harvard before coming back to Canada to run for public office. The Liberal Party retaliated by aiming linguistic projectiles at Prime Minister Stephen Harper that are normally reserved for despots, referring to him as “dictatorial” and to his administration as “the Harper regime.” Cultural norms can act as a powerful brake on tactics like these. For instance, in Japan, it was illegal until quite recently for commercial advertising to draw any explicit comparisons to competi-

tors on grounds that brazenly claiming to be better than someone else was “undignified”; many Japanese today still squirm at such unseemly behaviour. Canadians may yet decide that the current crop of political ads is too, well, un-Canadian. But when it comes to negative campaigning, genteel social norms get some pushback from psychological mechanisms that help give dirty politics an edge over keeping it clean. For one thing, there’s some evidence that attitudes that are framed as being in opposition to a candidate are sturdier than attitudes in support of a candidate. In a 2005 study by George Bizer and Richard Petty, subjects read descriptions of political candidates. Participants in one group were then asked to state which candidate they supported, while those in the other group were asked which candidate they opposed. Both groups had read exactly the same information about each candidate. But when people were encouraged to frame their attitudes as oppositional, their opinions became harder to dislodge with later information that put their preferred candidate in a bad light. It was as if a negative attitude towards the other guy had inoculated them against the effects of incriminating information about the candidate they’d liked better at the outset. It’s a finding that does little to discourage pre-emptive strikes. The effect may translate into a tactical advantage for Stephen Harper; recently, his government
faced charges of contempt of parliament for failing to provide adequate documentation that would allow for the proper evaluation of his party’s new crime legislation. What’s more, the timing of the Conservative ads, which were launched well before last week’s events threatened to provoke an election, may also benefit the Harper government. Negative campaign messages can have a longer half-life than positive messages. Normally, an ad has its greatest punch very soon after it’s first seen. But a 1999 study by Ruthann Lariscy and Spencer Tinkham found that this was less true of negative campaign ads, whose persuasive impact actually grew over a period of several weeks, even when the source of the message was perceived as not very credible to begin with. One possible explanation is that when people first see the negative ad, they have a bad taste in their mouths at what they feel are unfair tactics, and this makes them less immediately receptive to the attack on the opponent. But this queasy feeling dissipates fairly quickly while the negative impression that sticks to the opponent is more durable. All of this leads me to suspect that while Canadians may still express plenty of disgust at all this undignified political discourse, their politics may soon come to look a lot more like their hockey.

Canadiens one win away from Jr. C title Ex-Viper DiNatale extends scoring streak
Shutters, Shades and More!
By Angelo Montilla Staff Sports Reporter
The Belle River Canadiens are one win away from repeating as Great Lakes Jr. C League champions. Nik Dobrich had a pair of goals to lead the Canadiens to a 5-2 victory over the Sharks in Game 4 of the junior C final Monday night in Wheatley. The Canadiens lead the series 3-1 and can secure their second straight title Saturday night when they host the Sharks in Game 5 at Lakeshore Arena at 7:30 p.m. Travis Brown put the Canadiens on the scoreboard first, netting a power-play goal at 15:35 to give Belle River a 1-0 lead. In the second period, the Canadiens opened up a 3-0 lead after Spencer Jean and Dobrich scored. Andrew Thompson was solid in net for Belle River, closing the door in

the first two periods as the Canadiens took a three-goal lead into the third frame. Dobrich scored his second of the game on the man advantage to extend Belle River’s lead to 4-0, but the Sharks didn’t go away. Curtis Anderson and Shawn Quigley scored goals less than a minute apart to give the Sharks some life. Donovan Plummer put
the game out of the reach with an empty-net goal and secured the victory for the Canadiens. Thompson made 29 saves to improve his postseason record to 11-2. Canadiens captain Scott Chauvin finished with three assists, while Chris DiNatle extended his scoring streak to four games with two assists. DiNatle, who was part of the Sutherland Cup champion LaSalle Vipers
last year, now has eight points in the final against the Sharks.

Letters to the Editor LaSalle Police and the Town Budget
I have been following the Town’s budget news in the Post. As a taxpayer, I appreciate Council’s effort to curb expenditures. The danger in cutting expenditure is treating the unequal departments equally. There are places when cuts are appropriate, e.g., redundancy, inefficiency, ineffectiveness, waste, irrelevancy, and so on. Yet, there are departments that are giving the taxpayer the biggest bang for the buck by being low cost, maximum results, efficient, effective, and essential. Case in point: LaSalle Police services. Here is irrefutable evidence: The latest figures from Stats Canada (Statistics Canada-Canadian Centre for Justice Statistics, Police Resources in Canada, 2009 with respect to municipal Police Services with comparable services and with population of 15,000 to 50,000 in Ontario) show the LaSalle Police department as the most efficient (low cost) and effective (low crime rate) in all of Ontario. The policing cost is $181.00 (one hundred and eighty-one dollar) per capita, the lowest in Ontario. The ratio of officers to population is 812 person per officer, thereby
making LaSalle serviced by the fewest number of officers-- in Ontario (compared to similar towns). The crime rate is 123 per officer, again the lowest in Ontario (compare Timmins at 226 per officer with an 85 officers compared to 35 in LaSalle. The worst thing that Council can do is to clip the wings of such a high flying department by not allocating a decent increase in its budget. We must always remember that LaSalle Police is a first responder in a border area surrounded by a high crime region (Detroit) and serving a large area with the threat of a nuclear incident from Michigan (to wit, what is happening in Japan. We should be applauding LaSalle Police Services for giving the taxpayer the biggest bang for the buck and keeping the Town safe and a great place in which to live. We should celebrate their impressive achievements. Council must support these courageous men and women as they do their best of this Town 24/7.

OHA ruling comes back to hurt defending champs By Angelo Montilla Staff Sports Reporter
The LaSalle Vipers’ quest to repeat as Sutherland Cup champions came to an end Sunday night. Sammy Banga scored the lone goal in LaSalle’s 4-1 loss to the London Nationals in Game 6 of their Western Conference semifinal. The series slipped away from the Vipers, who were denied a 3-1 series lead after a review by the Ontario Hockey Association found LaSalle used an ineligible player. Darien Ekblad, who has spent the entire season with the Belle River Canadiens in junior C, stopped 21 shots in a 5-4 Vipers victory in Game 3. But the Nationals
protested the victory, saying Ekblad was the second 16-year-old player the Vipers have used. After the ruling, the Nationals won the replayed game to tie the series at 2-2 and went on to win the next two contests to put the defending champions out of the post-season. The Vipers surrendered the first goal in Game 6 at the 13-minute mark of the opening frame. Banga netted a powerplay goal just over two minutes later to tie the game at 1-1, but that was as close as the Vipers could get. The Nationals added another first-period goal along with a pair in the third to put the game away. Joseph Lepera was
solid in net for LaSalle, making 16 saves in the loss. Starting goaltender Adam Shibuya was injured earlier in the series after suffering a concussion. In Game 5, Vipers captain D.J. Turner scored a pair of power-play goals in an 8-2 loss. Lepera was pulled after allowing four goals on 12 shots and was relieved by Klinton Kenney, who made 24 saves.

Campbell turned aside 30 shots to lead the Windsor Spitfires to a 6-2 victory in Game 3 of their first-round series against the Erie Otter before a crowd of 5,565 fans at the WFCU Centre Monday night. The Spitfires gave Campbell the help he needed early on, as Stephen Johnston scored a power-play goal at 15:18 of the first period to give Windsor a 1-0 lead. The Otters responded with a goal of their own 20 seconds later, the Spitfires regained their lead on another powerplay goal from Jake Carrick to close out the opening period. The game remained in favour of the Spitfires up until the 15-minute mark of the second period when Erie converted on the power play. Spitfires captain Ryan Ellis restored Windsor’s one-goal edge after the blue-liner scored with less than three minutes left in the period to make it 3-2. After watching their

Distracted driver On March 20th, Police received a driving complaint that originated on Cabana Road and continued to a residence in LaSalle. Police spoke to the driver who stated their dog was jumping around in the vehicle and a bag of groceries fell causing her to swerve. The driver was advised to use a tether or crate to secure their dog to reduce distractions in the future.
Lock it or Lose it On March 20th, Several reports of theft from vehicles were taken in the Ramblewood Drive area. Police would like to remind residents to always lock their vehicles and ensure that they remove any items of value from their vehicles to deter thieves.
Marihuana seized On March 21st, Police pulled over a vehicle on Front Road after the driver was observed not wearing a seat belt. Officers noticed the odor of freshly burnt marihuana in the vehicle and the occupants turned over a small amount of cannabis. The cannabis was seized for destruction and both males were cautioned for possession of a controlled substance.
Kijiji scam On March 21st, A report of a fraud was taken from a local resident after they reported sending money overseas for the purchase of dogs. The complainant responded to an ad on Kijiji and became suspicious after the seller began requesting more money for additional expenses after the initial payment. The victim contacted the seller for updates on the arrival of the dogs and the seller became evasive causing the complainant to report the incident to police. It would appear from the Police investigation that this is a common fraud and citizens are warned to be weary of responding to ads on the internet and avoid sending payment unless the seller identity can be verified.
Youth possessing alcohol On March 21st, Officers patrolling the area of Sunnyside Blvd. came across several youths loitering in the area. One youth was found in possession of a can of opened beer and another can was located in their backpack. The youth was issued a summons for possessing alcohol while under the age of 19. The youth was taken home by a parent.
Fraud mix up On March 24th, Police took a report of a possible fraud involving someone's Social Insurance Number being used to obtain an account. Upon further investigation it was determined that the suspected party had a similar name as the victim but the birth dates were different. The incident is believed to be the result of a mix-up and not a fraud at this time.
2-car collision On March 25th, Police attended the 900 block of Kenwood for a report of a 2 vehicle accident. There were no injuries and the estimated damage is $4000. One driver was charged with careless driving.
Family dispute On March 26th, Officers assisted with a family dispute that arose over the use of a vehicle. The officers spoke to both family members and offered the use of victim services for counseling services.
