When Halle Tiessen’s birthday wish came true four years ago, her parents, Greg and Jana, were thrilled with the arrival of Halle’s little brother Colton on Feb. 22. Four years later, Halle’s birthday wish came true again. This time, it was baby sister Cora who arrived in time for Halle and Colton to blow out the candles on their birthday cake. For the Essex family to have all three of their children born on the same day is a novelty of sorts, but the odds of that happening are astronomical. Here’s the strangest part: none of the youngsters were even due in February - let alone on Feb. 22. They were due March 6, 7 and 8. Jana said all three births were preceded by her trying to complete errands or little chores. She said she was shopping at Leamington’s Walmart when her water broke before Halle’s birth in 2003. Her daughter was born at 11:45 p.m. Her due date was March 6. Colton was due on March 8 but after a day of cleaning house and preparing for Halle’s birth-

Greg and Jana Tiessen celebrated the birth of their third child, Cora, on Feb. 22 — the same day as son Colton, 4, and daughter Halle, 8, were born. day party, Jana went into labour. Colton arrived at 8:30 p.m., but not before Jana made several calls to cancel Halle’s fourth birthday party. After her first two children were born on Feb. 22, Jana said it became a joke of sorts when her latest addition was due on March 7. But she was prepared this time, celebrating Halle and Colton’s birthdays on Feb. 5, “just in

case I went into labour early.� At her final doctor’s appointment on Feb. 17 Jana said her doctor warned her that he thought she would once again go early, either Sunday (Feb. 20) or Monday (Feb. 21). “If you can hold off until Monday,� Greg joked, “then you can hold off to Tuesday.� She said her husband thought it “would be kind of neat� to have all three of their children’s

birthday on the same day. So when Family Day came, Jana said she took Colton to the mall and then began baking 65 cupcakes for Halle and Colton to share with their classes. And then the contractions started. Jana said they headed to Metropolitan Hospital but didn’t mention to the doctor the fact that the impending birth could be a three-peat for a Feb. 22 birthday. When she arrived, she was already dilated to six centimetres and at 1:55 a.m. on Feb. 22 Cora was born. Once word spread that Jana had three children all born on Feb. 22, they seriously began wondering about the odds of that happening. It was reported they are 133,255 to one. While Feb. 22 will most certainly be a very special day in the Tiessen household, Jana said they will make sure each of their children has their own little special party - “and then a big family party on Feb. 22.� Halle, Colton and Cora are the grandchildren of Ed and Jane Tiessen and Jean and Bruce Carder, all of Leamington.

With an election due, several band members from Caldwell First Nation are eager to go to the polls. It has been nearly four years ago since Chief Louise Hillier was victorious, after several years of controversy regarding a land claim issue. “Why is she not calling the election?� Ian Duckworth said. “That is the biggest question.� The vote is due on March 19, said Duckworth, who noted there should have been a nomination meeting held at the end of January. Last August, the band ratified a $105-million land claim settlement from the Ministry of Indian and Northern Affairs. A new urban reserve will be developed in Leamington over 30 years, instead of developing a reserve in the southeast ChathamKent, as proposed by the previous Caldwell band council. Members rejected a $23.4-million offer in 2003. The Municipality of ChathamKent had launched a legal challenge with the federal government after taking issue with not being consulted about the potential creation of a reserve in the municipality when the issue surfaced in 1998. When Hillier was elected in 2007, she made settling the outstanding land claim a top priority. Duckworth alleged there has been poor communication and a lack of transparency since that time, and said the election code must be improved. Hillier says this is an election year, but that there is still no official call. She said she was unable to speak at length at that moment, and was unable to be reached later in the day. In 2007, a protest erupted, with several Caldwell First Nation members criticizing the sale of band properties. Hillier said at the time it was to help the band pay down its debt. Band member Teresa Jacobs said some are hesitant to speak up and make waves. “There’s a lot of people who don’t want to,� she said.

Fighter planes mistaken for quake QMI Agency Chatham-Kent police received calls from two residents from Wheatley reporting hearing a loud boom around the dinner hour last Wednesday evening. One resident described it as “like a car hitting a house.� The officer working in the area heard it and members of the fire department apparently did as well. Po l i c e c o nt a c t e d Nat u ra l Resources Canada who advised they did not record an earthquake in the area. Police then contacted the Cleveland Airport and spoke with an air traffic control supervisor who confirmed they had also received numerous calls about the sound. He reported that the sound was of U.S. fighter jets breaking the sound barrier to catch up with a corporate jet that was out of communication near Toledo. After being contacted by the fighters, the corporate jet established contact and continued on its flight plan.

Home show draws about 800 Mark Ribble Leamington Post

Over 800 people filed through the gymnasium at the Kinsmen Recreation Complex on the weekend as they held their 11th annual Home and Garden Showcase. O r g a n i z e r B re n d a Fi s c h e r w a s pleased with the response from vendors and customers alike. “ This is a great opportunity for people to ask all of their questions of the professionals,â€? she said. Fo r t y - e i g h t e x h i b i t o r s w o r k e d through Friday to get their booths set up and create their displays in time for Saturday morning’s opening. Several unique home dĂŠcor booths joined the traditional home improvement vendors and insurance and lenders also set up displays to encompass all categories of home needs. Gabriele Countr ywide Floor & Home sponsored a family room makeover draw. That prize was won by Melissa Clare. The makeover is worth $10,000. D e s p i t e t h e ra i n y w e at h e r, t h e event was deemed a success. “The vendors come together under one roof, making it easy for people to visit them all in a twohour span,â€? said Fischer.

Pratas pleads to simple assault Collisions up nearly 30% Erica Bajer QMI Agency A 69-year-old Wheatley businessman who inappropriately touched seven foreign workers pleaded guilty to assault on March 1. Jose Pratas was granted a conditional discharge with three months of probation after making an admission of guilt. Charges of sexual assault were withdrawn by assistant Crown attorney Randy Semeniuk. “My client was never, ever guilty of sexual assault. That’s reflected in this result,� said defence lawyer Laura Joy after court. It was clear from the outset of the hearing that Pratas was uncomfortable pleading guilty to the charge. While the allegation was being read into the record, he became upset and refused to say he was guilty. However, after a brief recess and discussion with his lawyer, he did admit to the inappropriate touching. Semeniuk told the court that between Aug. 1, 2007 and Sept. 30, 2008, Pratas touched seven of his employees at Presteve Foods, which he no longer owns. The incidents happened in his office or vehicle and involved brief touches to

the women’s legs or chests. “This is over their clothing and there was nothing sexual in nature,� Joy added into the record. She told the court there were big problems with the Crown’s case, including the fact that the workers, many of them from Thailand, were brought to police by a Canadian Auto Workers official during a labour dispute. “It’s clear that this was about a labour dispute,� she said, noting that information came out during the 21-day preliminary hearing. “It was clear there were potential issues of collusion,� she said. “Had this case gone to trial, it would have been very complex and lengthy.� Joy said Pratas lived under very strict bail conditions after his arrest in September of 2008. She said he was essentially under house arrest until January 2010, when his conditions were amended. She asked that Ontario Court Justice Stephen Fuerth take all of those issues into consideration and grant Pratas an absolute discharge. Pointing to Pratas’ entrepreneurship and efforts in the community, Joy said he’s a productive person who accepts responsibility for his actions. “This is the type of gentleman who is the backbone of this country,� she said.

Semeniuk said he didn’t take over the case until after the preliminary hearing. “I brought a fresh pair of eyes to the file,� he said. “I acknowledge there are some weaknesses in the case.� He noted that the timing of the allegations was one of those issues. However, Semeniuk said the fact remains that women who trusted Pratas were made uncomfortable by his behaviour. “The victims were vulnerable and it (plea) validates their complaints,� he said. “The accused acknowledges his behaviour was inappropriate.� Semeniuk asked Fuerth to slap Pratas with a conditional discharge after six months probation. Fuerth said the sentence has to send a message to other employers. “I condemn the touching of employees in the manner described,� he said. “It’s one thing to engage in a pat on the back . . . this kind of physical contact, when unwanted and undesired, appropriately rose to the level of criminal misconduct.� Fuerth said the fact Pratas pleaded guilty saved the victims from having to testify and saved the court trial time and expense. Pratas didn’t wish to comment following the hearing.

Licence suspension for Kingsville man Leamington Post A 38-year-old Kingsville man received a three-day licence suspension after being stopped by Leamington OPP on Feb. 26. Police said the man was driving on Erie Street with his high-beam lights on - so he was stopped. In addition to the licence suspension, the man also received two provincial offence notices.

Town asks for â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;status quoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; on garbage fee proposal Mike Thibodeau Special/Leamington Post Some municipalities could lose, a n d f o r t h a t re a s o n L e a m i n g t o n council has asked that the EssexW i n d s o r S o l i d Wa s t e A u t h o r i t y maintain its present system for charging for garbage. The decision came at a special meeting on Friday between council and officials from the authority. B u t L e a m i n g t o n â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s d e c i s i o n doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mean it will have its own way. The meeting was only a courtesy call from the authority as it sought opinions from all its participating municipalities. Its operating board will make the final decision but it wanted input by March 9. In a report to Leamington, authority manager Eli Maodus explained that last year it was left with a $600,000 shortfall in its $22-million budget. That, because the municipalities did not send as much refuse to the landfill as was estimated.

charge. The charge could be based on population, assessment or even the nu m b e r o f h o u s e h o l d s. Ma o d u s explained that dumping totals would still be recorded and used to adjust the annual fee charged to each municipality. But he also told Leamington that in 2012 the authority plans to hire a fiscal consultant who will make a recommendation on fees. L e a m i n g t o n a d m i n i s t rat o r Bi l l Marck asked the pointed question that swayed councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s position. And that query was - could a municipality lose money this year if it was charged more than what it sent to the landfill, and then the consultant re commended an entirely different payment scenario. Maodus was uncertain what might transpire. Those are the kinds of situations that get us into problems, said Coun. Rick Atkin. â&#x20AC;&#x153; I l i k e t o p ay b a s e d o n w hat i s fact,â&#x20AC;? added Deputy Mayor Charlie Wright.

While the local municipalities paid just over $10 million to dump in the landfill, it also took in almost $4 million in fees from commercial users. But hiking the price to them is not so easy. Maodus said getting rid of garbage is very â&#x20AC;&#x153;price sensitive.â&#x20AC;? As well as competing against other landfills in Ontario and Michigan, he said there is an incinerator in Michigan that takes garbage at $10 to $15 ton. W h e n i t swung into operation about 15 years ago the landfill had a life expectancy of 25 years. But that lifespan has now been pushed to 38 to 40 years as less and less refuse is dumped.

Cost of going green W

e have no doubt that the McGuinty Liberals sincerely believed that their green energy policy would not only help save the environment, but also lift Ontario and its citizenry into a brave new world of clean energy production. But the dream of eco-ideologists and the reality of the Ontario Green Energy Act are two different things. Two years after the legislation’s introduction, many Ontarians are wondering if these green policies are worth it. Many others are thinking that it’s all been a big costly waste of time. There are numerous examples, many of them recent, that the Green Energy Act represents nothing more than an enormous ideological romp at the expense of the public purse. The first indication came when the legislation was introduced on Feb. 23, 2009. Henceforth, any planning wishes that local municipalities might have about Green Energy Actprotected projects would be ignored; the province would make planning decisions on behalf of locally-elected politicians. Since then there have been numerous other issues, but the most serious are economic in nature. While green energy production might be noble and politically important, it can’t be sustained from an economic perspec-

tive. It’s costly. It’s inefficient. And in some cases it’s (ironically) wasteful. The cost difference between coal use and solar use is enormous, and should have been an early warning. The Ontario Power Authority is paying its microFIT participants 80.2 cents for every kilowatt produced from solar panels, yet the OPA pays about four cents for every kilowatt produced using coal. There is a massive subsidy here; it’s no wonder our electricity bills are increasing. But it gets worse. Thousands of private citizens have signed up to supply solargenerated electricity to the OPA and have made substantial investments in the necessary equipment, only to learn that the province’s electrical grid isn’t even able to accommodate them right now. On paper, the Green Energy Act looks like a wonderful piece of legislation. On a practical level, it has failed on many levels. Rather than think through this legislation, its impact and its real cost, it would appear that the McGuinty Liberals were more concerned two years ago with pandering to a segment of the population that wanted to “go green” no matter what the cost. Ironically, the legislation has become a talking point for the Liberals’ opponents in the months leading up to the Ontario election in October.

Looking Back March 9, 1977 Despite a promise by education minister Thomas Wells to build a French high school here, the Essex County Board of Education has turned it down again. At a special meeting of the board last night, trustees voted 12-5 against a motion that would have initiated steps to start the project. — Leamington District Memorial Hospital has installed two new types of x-ray equipment to replace older systems. It is called a radiographic-fluoroscopic system. The x-ray department has also had a new tomographic unit installed which allows x-ray examinations of the body at different levels. — Mersea Township police constable Paul Armstrong is retiring. About 250 friends gathered at the Roma Club to hon-

our Armstrong, who has been a member of the force for 12 years. — The Ministry of Transportation and Communication has announced a special subsidy for snow removal deficits this week, but neither Leamington or Mersea expect to really benefit. To qualify for assistance, a municipality’s winter maintenance costs must exceed their highest annual winter costs over the last fours years by at least 20%. And the subsidy will only cover 50% of those higher costs. — The Leamington Flyers have fallen behind the Dresden Kings three games to one in the Great Lakes Jr. C semi-finals. The Flyers were beaten 6-4. Scoring for the Flyers were Mark Matheson, Dan Galloway, Dale Trimble and Pat Hillman. — Two Leamington boxers were stopped last week in bouts at the

Elmwood Casino. Clyde Hillman and Jerome Ferriss both lost their fights, but Hillman had moved up a division for the bout and Ferriss fell in the semifinals. — Bill Ruiter scored a goal in overtime to give the Wheatley Omsteads a 6-5 win over the Chatham Royals. Jim Pearson scored a hattrick and Rich Will and Andy Herring also chipped in with goals. The Omsteads now trail two games to one in the Seaway Division final of the Intermediate C playoffs. — L e a m i n g t o n L o c a l P- 4 5 9 Atoms battled to a 3-2 win over Wallaceburg in the OMHA ‘A’ Major Atom playdowns. Despite being down two games to zero, the Atoms battled with three straight wins to take the series. Scoring for the Atoms were Paul Vlodarchyk, Steve Hyrnewich and Richard Clifford. Marcel Pillon had the win in net.

Our military heritage: Canadian Forces on the move Last week Prime Minister Stephen Harper announced that the Canadian warship HMCS Charlottetown was on its way to the waters off wartorn Libya to facilitate the rescue of Canadian nationals. The Charlottetown will join an American battle group already operating in the area. Pressure on Ottawa to take action was mandated by news that Canadian Forces Hercules aircraft were denied landing rights in Tripoli and re t u r n e d t o Ma l ta w it hout the load of oil workers that External Affairs hoped to evacuate. Canada also has a highly trained combat reconnaissance unit and a medical group in Malta. The ver y mention of Malta and Tripoli b r i n g s b a c k i ma g e s o f t h e S e c o n d Wo r l d W a r w h e n Canadian airmen joined in t h e d e f e n c e o f t hat b e l e a guered island, and the Allies battled Field Marshal Rom-

No matter what you hear, NATO c a n n o t t o l e ra t e t h e continuance in power of the dictator Moammor Gadhaffi f o r mu c h l o n g e r. T h e p a s t tells us the west will be tough when vast resources of oil are concerned. Problems exist at the Tripoli airfield not only f ro m a s e c u r i t y v i e w p o i n t but also because the facility doesn’t have the ramp space to handle aircraft the size of a Hercules. Charter planes were tried, but they arrived to find no additional Canadians wishing to be evacuated. C a n a d a ’s f i r s t f o r e i g n

excursion in force was to fight for Queen Victoria in the Boer War in South Africa. In late October 1899, thousands of well-wishers lined the docks at Quebec City to send a thousand volunteers to war. Over the next three years over 6,000 additional troops were required and sent overseas. Overall this country lost 244 soldiers by the close of hostilities. A large Kingsville contingent re ce ive d a g rand w e lcome home in 1901. They arrived by train, handsomely decorated w ith flags, while the car which carried the men was decked out in red, white and blue bunting with flags. The Kingsville Band played “Soldiers of the Queen” as they stepped from the train to be welcomed by Reeve James Sweet and a crowd of over two thousand. A parade down Lansdowne Street to Epworth Methodist Church was held with the returning veterans given white horses

to ride. While many others were to return over the next two years, only the first contingent received such a enthusiastic and gala welcome. Pte. Lambert Wigle among others were recognized for their role in the capture of two guns from the Boers in action around Klip Kop. Little did anyone know that in a dozen years the world would be propelled into a wider and more bloody conflict when the world’s great powers collided after the death of Austrian Archduke Franz Ferdinand. With the bicentennial of the War of 1812 less than a year away, it’s appropriate t hat o n e o f t h e s u p e r b l i terary efforts regarding that long ago conflict was written by James Elliott, a former EDHS student now a journalist based in Hamilton. Elliotts book, “Strange Fa t a l i t y ” f o c u s e s o n t h e allied victory in 1813 at

Stoney Creek, near presentday Burlington. His stor y tells how, having obtained the American password, British regulars staged a bayonet attack in the middle of the night and led to the capture of two Amer ican generals. Despite being small in numb e r s, Hi s Maj e s t y ’s In d i a n allies planted a fear on the American troops that led to a n o t h e r v i c t o r y a t B e av e r Dams, where Laura Secord, the “Heroine of Upper Canada,” crossed enemy lines to warn the British of Yankee troop movements. T h e l o n g ra n g e e f f e c t o f the victor y at Stoney Creek s h o u l d n o t b e u n d e r- e s t i mated, for as Elliot says “if the battle had gone the other w ay a s i t p ro b a b l y s h o u l d have, all the what is now Southwestern Ontario would have fallen to the Americans. They weren’t playing catch and release. Of say can you see the 19th state!” James Elliott’s epic of one

He has himself taken part in re-enactments of the struggle, walking the route t hat w o u l d t a k e A m e r i c a n forces to disaster, and searching for “the terror of a night operation where you literally couldn’t see anything.” S t r a n g e Fa t a l i t y c a n b e ordered online at Amazon. ca. Canada has been painted by some as an almost pacifist countr y. This has not been true in the past, and will likely not be in the future in a violent and troubled world. From the struggle at Stoney Creek, to deployment in the Mediterranean now, Canada as a nation dedicated to fairness and freedom, will not be found wanting.

Politicians who reject science not fit to lead My life as a scientist got its boost in the United States. I w a s att e n d i n g c o l l e g e i n Massachusetts in 1957 on a scholarship when the Soviet Union launched the first Sputnik satellite. The event also launched the space race between the USSR and the U.S., as the Americans started pouring money into the sciences in an attempt to catch up. I was given funding to continue my graduate studies at the University of Chicago. On getting my PhD, I went on to work as a research associate at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory in Tennessee. Although the facility was built in 1942 as part of a top secret program to purify uranium for the Manhattan Project, its focus had shifted to basic biology by the time I arrived, and it became a centre of world-class research

David Suzuki Opinion and international co-operation. Times have changed. I wish I could say that we’ve evolved w h e n i t c o m e s t o s c i e n c e. But sometimes reading the news and listening to the pronouncements of politicians, especially south of the border, I’m bewildered by the rampant ignorance about science and the antipathy toward it. One example I just came across was a comment by the governor of Maine, Paul Lepage, about bisphenol-A , or BPA , which is used mainly

in plastic containers and toys. Health Canada recently declared BPA a toxic chemical because of its links to breast cancer, developmental problems in children, prostate disease, and fertility issues. In response to calls for his state to restrict BPA use, Lepage said, “There hasn’t been any science that identifies that there is a problem. The o n l y t h i n g t h a t I’v e h e a rd is if you take a plastic bottle and put it in the microwave and you heat it up, it gives off a chemical similar to estrogen. So the worst case is some women may have little beards.” It’s a profoundly ignorant statement for anyone to make, let alone a state governor, but it’s only the tip of the iceberg. Science is taking a beating in the U.S., and we’re starting to see a similar phenomenon here in Canada, although not

to as great an extent. Fa r m o re d a n g e ro u s a re attempts by U.S. politicians to attack the over whelming scientific evidence that human activity is causing catastrophic climate change. Despite countless studies by scientists from around the world and agreement among 98% of the world’s climate s c i e nt i s t s a n d m o s t o f t h e world’s scientific academies and societies that greenhouse gas emissions are causing the Earth’s average temperature to rise, not to mention the facts staring us in the face - increased frequency of extreme weather conditions, rising sea levels, melting ice caps and glaciers - some politicians in the U.S. continue to reject the science and argue that we must proceed with business as usual. Virginia’s Republican attorney general, Kenneth Cuc-

cinelli, has been spending taxpayer dollars attacking climate scientists at the University of Virginia and is suing the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency over its ruling that carbon dioxide and other global warming gases are a threat to human health and welfare. Many Republicans, some of whom also reject the science of evolution and believe the Earth was created 6,000 years ago and that humans and dinosaurs walked together, have been following his lead. Meanwhile a fifth investigation into the so-called “climategate” brouhaha, this one led by Republicans in response to a request from one of their own, Sen. James Inhofe of Oklahoma, has again found no “evidence to question the ethics of our scientists or raise doubts about [the National Oceanic and

Atmospheric Administration’s] understanding of climate change science.” In Canada, our government has cut funding for climate research, rejected or i g n o re d s c i e n t i f i c s t u d i e s showing environmental damage from the tars sands, and been accused of “muzzling” scientists. We c a n t a k e s o m e c o m fort that, according to a recent poll, 80% of Canadians believe in the science behind climate change, compared to only 58% of U.S. citizens. Science isn’t perfect, and it can be used for destructive as well as beneficial purposes. But it’s the best tool we have for analyzing and understanding our world and the impact of our actions on the environment of which we are a part. If our leaders reject science, we really are in trouble.

Mark Ribble Leamington Post Store owner Tony Butineau cuts the ribbon with Mayor John Paterson and the Freshco employees gathered around.

Freshco comes to town Mark Ribble Leamington Post

The Price Chopper store in Leamington has given way to something different. Freshco officially opened its doors Friday morning at 8 a.m. Thirty to 40 anxious shoppers waited patiently as owner/operator Tony Butineau addressed his staff and local officials prior to cutting the ribbon. Butineau, who was previously a part of the Price Chopper store, thanked the staff for working so hard on the transformation. And the transformation is something to behold. The new design has opened up space in the store that was previously cluttered or hidden under product. Freshco is owned by the Sobeys chain and Director of Operations for Southwestern Ontario, Don Herman, cited price and freshness as their motto. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you hang your hat on fresh, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d better be fresh,â&#x20AC;? he said. Several new sections adorn the store as the chain tries to cater to everyone, with ethnic food sections and even gluten-free products. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re trying the full gamut of products to get a feel for what the people want,â&#x20AC;? said Butineau. Mayor John Paterson was on hand to welcome Freshco to the community and he was joined by councillors John Jacobs, Chris Chopchik and Larry Verbeke. Verbeke, a local agricultural voice, was happy with the produce section. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So many products and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve already talked to them about pushing the local stuff in season,â&#x20AC;? he said. Shoppers should generally find the layout of the new store pleasing and easy to navigate. The brightness and cleanliness jumps out at you upon entry. Store hours are 8 a.m. to 10o p.m. Monday through Friday and 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. Herman summed it all up when he said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;discount done right. Cheaper and fresher every day.â&#x20AC;?

Franko seeks NDP nod for federal riding Leamington Post A real estate agent from Chatham-Kent wants to be the NDP candidate in the next federal election. Ron Franko made his intentions known last week. The riding associationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nomination meeting will be held Thursday, March 10 at the former CAW Hall (180 Merritt Ave, Chatham) at 7 p.m. Born and raised in Chatham-Kent, Franko says he recognizes the daily problems that todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s society faces and says heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s devoted his life to the reconciliation of these issues. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Through my daily dealings with people as a real estate broker, I have first hand knowledge and understanding of the challenges facing our everyday lives,â&#x20AC;? said Franco. In past elections, Franco has worked behind the scenes but hopes that as Chatham-Kent Essex MP he can gain more headway on the regionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s problems. Franco said he recognizes that most of problems faced by Canadian citizens must be faced at a federal level, and says he would offer input and ideas. Franco says too many Canadian products are imported. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Too many of our jobs are now in China and other foreign countries, precipitated by globalization, free trade, and current government policies.â&#x20AC;? Franko says increased taxes on citizens are causing the affordability of basic necessities to suffer and the quality of life for low income citizens to decrease.

Farmers may be left holding the Legion News bag in MicroFit program: Stevens Special/Leamington Post

ties, who then had to meet certain technical requirements for a May 31 installation deadline to hook up to the grid. If not, they would lose their conditional offer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Taking the conditional offer as a sign of good faith on the part of the OPA and the Ontario government, many of these farmers took advantage of good weather and began installing their systems last fall,â&#x20AC;? said Stevens. â&#x20AC;&#x153; How e v e r, ma n y o f t h e m w e re informed quite recently by Hydro One that their solar projects could not be connected to the grid due to load constraints.â&#x20AC;? He said to make matters worse, no time frame has been provided for connections. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The situation is extremely unfair to those involved,â&#x20AC;? said Stevens, adding that many within the farming community have been left with considerable capital expenses but have little hope of seeing a return on their investment in foreseeable future. â&#x20AC;&#x153; The province has failed to act

John Phair QMI Agency The president of the Chr istian Fa r m e r s F e d e r a t i o n o f O n t a r i o (CFFO) says a number of farmers who have invested or borrowed money to install solar panels on their farms have been treated unfairly in the provinceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s relentless push toward green energy. Henr y Stevens says Stevens heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s heard from many far mers who, after either installing solar equipment on their farms or having ordered it, are now being told theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll not be allowed access to Ontarioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s electrical grid, leaving them out of pocket for their purchases. In a press release, Stevens said the issue is the nature of conditional offers for MicroFit solar contract offered by the Ontario Power Authority. He said many conditional offers had been issued to interested par-

in good faith and this needs to be remedied.â&#x20AC;? He noted that CFFO staff would be discussing the situation w ith Ontario Agriculture Minister Carol Mi t c h e l l a n d o t h e r g ov e r n m e n t agencies to have the situation discussed quickly. Sarnia-Lambton MPP Bob Bailey said his office has been inundated with calls over the issue, not only from his own riding but from farmers in Middlesex County and Chatham-Kent. Bailey said many participating in the MicroFit program have invested tens of thousands of dollars believing in good faith that the government would honour its promise. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think the McGuinty government has led these people down t h e ga rd e n p at h a n d ma n y hav e invested their life-savings into this ponzi-like scheme,â&#x20AC;? said Bailey. He said the McGuinty government should have subjected all of the energy upgrades to a rigorous feasibility study as well as an effective consultation process to avoid the problem.

Chatham-Kent Essex Tories pick Nicholls ness of training and development. He believes the key to changing this t r e n d w i l l b e w o r king together closely with municipalities to bring in new business. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to work in a collaborative spirit to bring labour and management together and to Nicholls g e t t h e m t o w o rk s o itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s for the better to the entire community,â&#x20AC;? he added.

The Chatham businessman received the nod to be the Progress i v e C o n s e r v at i v e c a n d i d at e f o r Chatham-Kent Essex in the Oct. 6 provincial election during a nomination meeting, defeating Doug Su l ma n , a mu n i c i p a l c o u n c i l l o r who lives in Chatham. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m extremely ecstatic about this opportunity to serve my community, to serve the ChathamKe n t E s s e x r i d i n g ,â&#x20AC;? N i c h o l l s said shortly after the votes were tallied. Nicholls said he has been involved in politics behind the scenes for years, but â&#x20AC;&#x153;now I get to a chance to really do something powerful for our community and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m excited about that.â&#x20AC;? Sulman campaigned on having a strong record of electoral success, including routinely getting more votes than former fellow ChathamKe nt mu n i c i p a l c o u n c i l l o r Pau l Wa t s o n , w h o i s expected to be na m e d t h e L i b eral candidate for the ChathamKe n t E s s e x r i d ing. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A l l I w a n t e d to do was tr y to ser ve ChathamKent the best I could and this was an opportunity to do that ,â&#x20AC;? Sulman said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I wish all the best to Rick and at the end of the day I will do my best to ser ve ChathamKent for the next three-and-a-half years (on council),â&#x20AC;? he added. Noting Watson is a friend, Nicholls said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Paul is a ver y worthy candidate if he is the chosen one from the Liberal camp.â&#x20AC;? H o w e v e r, h e added, â&#x20AC;&#x153;we are fighting hard to make this territor y (Tor y) blue once again.â&#x20AC;?

Long-time Liberal MPP Pat Hoy has announced his retirement, but Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Brien said it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really concern him, because he believes the time is right for change in the riding.

Peewees advance to OMHA Finals Leamington Post The Southpoint Capitals Pee Wee â&#x20AC;&#x153;Aâ&#x20AC;? team, sponsored by Gabriele Floor and Home, raised some eyebrows last weekend by travelling to Centre Wellington (Fergus and Elora) and coming away with two road wins and the lead in the series -setting up a decisive game five in Wheatley on Sunday. In game three in Fergus, the Caps fans were treated to a good old-fashioned Scottish bagpipe entrance for the home team. The boys came out determined to show the Fusion exactly what kind of series this was going to be. With â&#x20AC;&#x153;Birthday Boyâ&#x20AC;? Kody Epp leading the way with two goals, and another by Brayden Klemens, the Capitals pulled out a 3-1 win, tying up the series at three points apiece. Game four, again in Fergus, Southpoint proved that the previous game was no fluke. With goals from Brayden Klemens and Eric Prudence, the Capitals shutout the Centre Wellington Fusion 2-0. Jimmy McLellan earned the shutout for SPC. Coming home for game five with the chance to close out the series and advance to the OMHA finals, both teams came out trying to make a statement. In the first period the Fusion got the first tally with a slapshot from the point by one of their defensemen. In the second, Centre Wellington got another one past our goalie. Leading 2-0 after the first two periods, the crowd would not let the teams forget where they were and how loud they could be. With seven minutes left in the game, Eric Prudence got one past the Fusion goalie. This only got the crowd going even more and the fish and fish heads were flying with regularity. A couple of minutes later, Quinn Bowman found the back of the net to tie up the game, forcing overtime. In overtime, after our goalie made some timely saves, the crowd erupted with horns, fish and applause when Quinn Bowman poked one by the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Goliathâ&#x20AC;? goaltender from Fergus, to catapult our Southpoint Capitals to the OMHA Finals. The Championship series should begin this weekend, when Southpoint takes on twotime and defending OMHA champions â&#x20AC;&#x153;Cobourg Cougarsâ&#x20AC;?,check the Southpoint website for the schedule.

Two unexpected road wins have left the Leamington Flyers and LaSalle Vipers tied at two games apiece in their first round of playoff series. Leamington grabbed a convincing 5-1 victory last Wednesday night in LaSalle, then played at home Thursday and fell 3-1 to the Vipers. A win in LaSalle was what the Flyers needed and they got it as the team played solidly to build a 3-0 lead during the first 40 minutes of play. Cheyne Matheson collected three points to lead the Flyersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; offense. After a scoreless first frame, Matheson slotted a pair of goals. His first came three minutes into the second after Nic Nicodemo and Ron Soucie laid the groundwork. Kyle Bowman passed to Matheson who converted it at 11:15. Nicodemo potted the third marker after Matheson set him up. But LaSalle got their lone goal of the game late in the second to make it a 3-1 contest. Eight minutes into the third Alex Seguin made it 4-1 and during the final minute Tyler Quigley found Dylan Solecki who completed the 5-1 win. Colin Greeley earned the win by making 20 saves. On Thursday night, both teams were looking to get a pivotal win. But that victory was gained by the LaSalle Vipers

The LaSalle Vipers evened the series at 2-2 after beating the Leamington Flyers 3-1 at the Heinz Arena on Thursday. Austin Mattson scored the lone goal for Leamington who will head to LaSalle tonight (March 9) for game ďŹ ve at 7 p.m. and then host the Vipers Thursday night at 7:10 p.m. at the Heinz Arena. Above, Flyers captain Nicholas Nicodemo tries to tip in a shot from teammate Cheyne Matheson. who started spare goalie Adam Shibuya. Playing their second game

in a 24-hour span, the Flyers appeared physically and mentally tired in the first.

Turnovers and bouncing pucks were also a factor in the contest.

LaSalle opened the scoring 10 minutes into the first when Dylan Seguiin stood on Colin Greeleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s doorstep and redirected Eric Noelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pass. In under a minute the Vipers took a 2-0 lead. Greeley made two saves before a rebound shot out into the slot and was pumped past the Flyers starter. At the start of the second period, the Flyers came out and played better. At 1:19, Tony Spidalieri initiated a play on which Eric Mayor flung the puck to Austin Mattson whose left lane shot handcuffed Shibuya. With the gap narrowed, the Flyers and Vipers battled hard to gain the next goal. In the third, Shibuya made the save of the game when he miraculously pulled the puck from out of the air just as it appeared to enter the net. Minutes later, on what many fans thought was an offside, the Vipers tabbed their third goal on Greeley and that last marker proved to be the insurance goal. Shibuya made 29 saves in the game and stopped 10 in the third while Greeley halted 35 that came his way. The series shifts back to LaSalle tonight (March 9) for Game Five. If the Flyers are going to win the series, they will need to steal another win on LaSalleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s home ice. SCHEDULE: March 9, Leamington at LaSalle 7 p.m.; March 10, LaSalle and Leamington 7:10 p.m.; March 13, Leamington and LaSalle (if necessary) 7 p.m.

Sharks a little banged up but keeping with the Lakers Pat Bailey Special/Leamington Post The Wheatley Sharks let a 5-2 third-period lead slip away Saturday night at home, losing 6-5 to the Wallaceburg Lakers in overtime in Game Two of the second round of the Great Lakes Junior C Playoffs. Jesse Martin started things off with a short-handed goal in the first period for the Sharks, but the Lakersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Brendon Merritt knotted it up before the end of the first. But Lakersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; penalties in the second allowed the Sharks to score four powerplay goals before the end of the period. Kurtis Ouellette, Shawn Quigley, Dylan Cosford and Josh Tremblay scored for the Sharks, while Norm Leger replied for the Lakers. But Wallaceburgâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Tyler Lewis caused the Sharks all kinds of problems the rest of the way. He started off the third period with a goal, with Tyson Isaac chipping in with one as well. As the clocked ticked down, it looked as if the Sharks had held on to take a 2-0 lead in the second round of the playoff series but with

.4 seconds left Lewis struck again to send the game into overtime. And at 4:19 of the overtime period, Lewis completed his hattrick, tying the series at 1-1. The two teams have now traded road wins in the series, with Wheatley taking the first one 4-2 last Wednesday. Shawn Quigley and Trevor Grieve each scored twice in the win. Coach Ken Galerno was happy with the outcome of the first game but admits the game couldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve gone either way. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We came out and scored a couple of quick goals,â&#x20AC;? said Galerno, â&#x20AC;&#x153;but then let them come back to tie it.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;We hunkered down though and played a good defensive game to squeak past them,â&#x20AC;? he added. Losing their four regular season games to the Lakers, Galerno said he knows itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be a tough series. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m expecting a tough series,â&#x20AC;? said the coach, â&#x20AC;&#x153;just like Essex.â&#x20AC;? And Galerno said his guys learned quite a bit from that series that they can build on. â&#x20AC;&#x153;No one on the team has been past the first round,â&#x20AC;? said Galerno,

of playoff action. But he said following the big win in Essex, the guys now have a taste for winning and know what it takes. He said theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not a team of superstars but a group of guys with a lot of character. Galerno said and heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also come to expect the unexpected - as far as goal scoring goes. He said itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not just one line that puts the puck in the net - other than Shawn Quigley, who has nine goals and 18 points in playoffs, the goals have come off the sticks of players from every line. That, he said, can leave the other teams guessing. Galerno, though, is hoping that inexperience doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t factor in the outcome of the second round. With a team thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;a little banged upâ&#x20AC;?, Galerno said he is expecting some to return to action this week. As far as matching up against the Lakers, Galerno said he still doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know what to expect. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They have a few real nice hockey players,â&#x20AC;? said Galerno, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and one of the better goalies in the league.â&#x20AC;? For the Sharks, Galerno said,

The Wheatley Sharks lost a heartbreaker in overtime Saturday night to the Wallaceburg Lakers, 6-5. They will host the Lakers tonight (March 9) at 7:30 p.m. Above, Sharks Trevor Grieve and Jordan Carnevale win the battle for the puck over Lakers' Drew Shantz. the key is discipline - staying out of the penalty box. The Sharks will host the Lakers tonight (March 9) at 7:30 p.m. in game four. They will head to Wallaceburg on Saturday (March 12) for game five at 7:30 p.m.

Atom Majors downed 6-3 by Belle River

Brenda Fischer Special/Leamington Post

Leamington Post The Reid Funeral Home Atom Majors had a good game, but came up a few goals short. The Caps had many opportunities in this game but could not find the twine. Scoring for the Caps, Mason Gow, Gioia DiCiocco and Brett Thomas. Collecting assists were Jeron Kir, Thomas, Matt Carvalho, Matt Travis and Tyler Zesbok. With the season fast coming to a close, the team is playing the best hockey of the season. The Caps travel to Windsor on Monday night to play on the big ice at the WFCU Centre and play Amherstburg twice more to end the season. The team is playing some very spirited games as they ready their play for Pee Wee hockey next season and the contact hockey they will face. Keep up the hard work team. In his final year as a student at Cardinal Carter Secondary School para-swimmer Marc Beneteau not only qualified for OFSAA, he brought home a silver medal in the 50-metre backstroke. In doing so, Beneteau smashed his personal best by four seconds in the Etobicoke pool Wednesday. He also qualified in the 100-metre freestyle, finishing 12th.

The Pride of Parkhill: 1946 Ford fire truck Bill Sherk Special/Leamington Post

SUPPLIED

2012 Honda Civic coupe — one of several versions of the Civic on sale starting this spring.

Honda’s more civil Civic It shouldn’t come as a surprise that Honda decided to remake the Civic with further environmental awareness — not because of the current social climate but because that’s what Civic has stood for since its introduction in 1972. Honda is promising the all-new 2012 Civic will better address the diverse needs of the compact car buyer when it launches in spring 2011, including a renewed commitment to fuel economy. A component of that is aerodynamics, with the new Civic sedan’s snout bearing more than a passing resemblance to both the Insight five-door hatchback Insight hybrid and the FCX Clarity fuel-cell sedan. The coupe’s nose is pointier, with a smaller grille. It will again be available in coupe and sedan body styles, both in various trim levels, and with a hybrid sedan still in the mix. “ The Civic is the only model in the industry that can deliver on all fronts — fuel economy, sporty performance, smart packaging, alternative fuel and long-term value,” said Jerry Chenkin, executive vice president of sales for Honda Canada Inc. “For the ninth-generation Civic, we are emphasizing improved fuel economy across the board, from the

Quick Look hybrid sedan to the sporty Si models.” The Civic Hybrid sedan will come with aerodynamic components for improved efficiency as well as Honda’s ECO Assist technology, an innovation that can enhance efficient vehicle operation while providing feedback to promote more efficient individual driving styles. It will be available on coupe and sedan models, as well — the first such application in gasoline only models. Its impact is considerable, with the 2012 Honda Civic sedan, for example, carrying an estimated fuel economy rating of 7.2 L/100km in the city and 5.0 on the highway (a 12% improvement on the current model). A 2% improvement in fuel economy is also being touted for the Civic Si coupe and sedan, despite the models’ 2.4 litre four-cylinder engines (linked to new six-speed automatics) that make an anticipated 200 horsepower and 170 lb.-ft. of torque (a 22% increase). The regular Civics get motivation from 140 hp 1.8litre four-cylinder engines, with a choice of five-speed manuals or five-speed automatics, while the Hybrid uses a 110-hp 1.5-litre “four” with a continuously variable transmission. All engines

use i-VTEC, Honda’s variable valve timing and lift system) for improved power and economy. More details and final pricing for the new 2012 Civic will be announced closer to the car’s on-sale date. Civic coupes and sedans will be built at Honda’s plant in Alliston, Ont. joe.duarte@sunmedia.ca

Powered by the flathead V8 engine made famous by the Ford Motor Company, this b r i g h t re d t r u c k f a i t h f u l l y responded to all fire alarms for nearly 20 years. It w e nt i nt o s e m i - re t i re ment in 1963 when the Pa r k h i l l F i r e D e p a r t m e n t bought a new Chevrolet fire truck, followed by a new Ford Seagrave fire truck in 1983. Today the town is equipped w i t h a 2 0 0 1 Ma c k R B 4 0 0 0 , one of only two in O ntar io with a 4,000-gallon tank. The town also has a 2003 Freightliner fire truck. In Januar y 1998, Parkhill Fire Chief George Elliott died at age 42. As a tribute to his memory, donations were collected to pay for the restoration of the 1946 Ford fire truck. G eorge’s brother-in-law, T h e o Va n d e r a a , o w n e d a b o d y s h o p i n Pa rk h i l l a n d performed the restoration, assisted by some fire department volunteers. A plaque was mounted on the side of the truck in George Elliott’s memory. The 1946 fire truck is stored at the Parkhill fire hall and i s b ro u g h t o u t a n d d r i v e n on many special occasions, including the Parkhill Santa Claus parade and the CornFest antique car show in Cor-

It has also been driven in the Lucan Santa Claus parade and still has its origi na l e q u i p m e nt e x c e p t f o r the water tank, which rusted away. In the early days, fire trucks were called fire engines. They had steam-powered pumpers and were hauled by teams of horses galloping at top speed to the nearest fire. When those horses got too old, they were often sold off for less strenuous use, such as pulling a buggy. You had to be careful about buying a second-hand horse from a fire hall. Sometimes, when they heard the fire alarm, they bolted and ran with the panic-stricken buggy riders shouting “Whoa!” in vain. Henry Ford was still alive w h e n t h e t ow n o f Pa rk h i l l

He died during a power failure in April 1947 and passed away by the light of a coal oil lamp, the same illumination that welcomed him into the world when he was born on a farm in Michigan in 1863. In 1 9 5 6 , Pa rk h i l l’s s i s t e r fire station in Ailsa Craig purchased a new fire truck. It’s original and unrestored and still runs. That story is coming soon. Stay tuned.

More schools to offer full-day Kindergarten Leamington Post By 2012 about 900 elementary schools in Ontario will be offering full-day kindergarten - including several in the Leamington area. When that school year begins, kids entering Kindergarten at East Mersea, Queen Elizabeth and Saint Michel will be the latest to have

the opportunity for full-day classes. That means about 1,700 schools will offer full-day Kindergarten to about 120,000, or nearly half of that age group in Ontario. T h i s S e p t e m b e r, Q u e e n o f Pe a c e a n d M . D. B e n n i e schools will join about 200 other schools in the expansion of the full-day Kinder-

4-H Farm Safety Report

Going once, going twice, sold

Hanna Willemsma Special/Leamington Post The second meeting of the 4-H Safety Club was the Annual Fa r m S a f e t y A s s o c i a t i o n â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Farmerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Night. The members of our club assisted at the meeting. Lacey and Susy Wolters did registration. Matt Salter and Cody Nelson were in charge of the slow moving vehicle signs tradein. Every farmer who brought in an old slow moving vehicle sign received a new one. Nic Willemsma greeted the farmers at the door. Juliana and Hanna Willemsma prepared the takehome bags. Each bag contained eight respirators and books on safe implements on the roadways and machinery guards. Our speaker for the evening was Dan Metcalf from EMS. He talked about the use of respirator masks around the farm.

They should be worn when working in a dusty area or with chemicals. They should be worn for activities like drywalling or working with straw. Wearing the respirator will keep dust and other small particles out of our lungs and keep them healthy. It will also prevent the farmer from developing â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;farmerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lungâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; and other lung diseases. He demonstrated the proper way to wear the mask. The talk was informative. At the close of Mr. Metcalf â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s talk, our president, Nic Willemsma thanked Mr. Metcalf and gave him two jars of tasty jam purchased from the 4-H Canning Club. The evening finished with refreshments for the farmers to enjoy while they socialized. It was a successful evening and our club looks forward to helping again next year.

Hardeman calling for RMP based on cost-of-production 4-H Knitting and Crocheting Report John Phair QMI Agency

While Ontario Agriculture Minister Carol Mitchell has openly acknowledged that the AgriStability program is not working for farmers, t h e p r o v i n c e â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s livestock producers continue to lose money. Hardeman Progressive Conservative agriculture critic Ernie Hardeman says Ontarioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pork and beef producers where projected to lose more than $500 million this year and yet there has been no movement by the government to initi-

ate a risk management program (RMP) for them. In addition, Hardeman says thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no indication the RMP provided to grain and oilseeds p ro d u c e r s i n 2 0 1 0 w i l l b e extended to cover the current crop year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Once again grain farmers are being asked to put seed into the ground without the protection of a risk management program,â&#x20AC;? said Hardeman told Todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Farmer at a stop in Dresden recently. He added that the Progressive Conservative caucus also believes that the grain and oilseeds RMP should become a permanent program. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The program certainly isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t bankable and dependable if

farmers have to beg to have it extended each year,â&#x20AC;? Hardeman said, adding that the Ontario Progressive Conservative caucus also supports the notion that all non-supply management commodities should have the opportunity to participate in an RMP program thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s based on cost-ofproduction. However, he added that farmers shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to wait for a change of government to get the support they need. Hardeman has appealed to Mitchell in an open letter asking that her government take action. He said in a few weeks the McGuinty government will have an opportunity to demonstrate that leadership when it brings

down a provincial budget. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time to stop talking about the problems facing our farmers and take concrete action to support them,â&#x20AC;? Hardeman said. Hardeman said farmers in Ontario are competing against provinces such as Quebec and Alberta which have implemented provincial programs based on cost-of-production. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We believe that the McGuinty government should stop blaming others and show leadership when it comes to protecting and helping Ontario farmers,â&#x20AC;? he said. Hardeman is the MPP for Oxford and a former Ontario agriculture minister.

Jessica Scherer Special/Leamington Post On Feb. 23 we held our second meeting for the 4-H knitting and crocheting club. Meghan led us in the 4-H, pledge followed by the secretar yâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s report. We then did roll call. After the business portion of the meeting, Jennifer, and Mary showed us how to play t h e B i r t h d a y G a m e. To d o this, without talking, we had to organize all of the members in order of their birthdays from January to December. The only problem we had was that we only had five minutes to do so.

We t h e n d i s c u s s e d s o m e ideas for our board and together we decided that we will get a blue one this year! After the game we took out our balls of yarn and our needles then got started. Ever y b o d y w o rk e d o n v a r i o u s things. The knitters worked on some yoga socks, dishcloths and tea cosies, while the crocheters worked on curlicue key chains and cotton dishcloths. After a lot of knitting and crocheting we ended the meeting. Next week I will be bringing snacks and drinks. We hope to see everyone next there!

County council passes 2011 budget with 1.5% tax increase Ron Giofu QMI Agency Essex County council passed their 2011 budget March 2 and it calls for ratepayers to fork out 1.5% more than last year. This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s budget calls for a county levy of just over $70.5 million, an increase of over $2.3 million from the 2010 budget. The increase translates into a $12.61 increase for a home with an assessed value of $200,000. Among the increased expenses are wage and benefit adjustments, as director of corporate services and treasurer Rob Maisonville pointed

out that five of six collective agreements the county has with its workers has expired. There will also be nine new paramedics hired, something which Essex-Windsor EMS Chief Brian Bildfell said every municipality will benefit from as response times will be shortened around the county. There will also be $1 mill i o n f o r t h e c o u n t y â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s active transportation system and $100,000 to help Windsor fund the International Childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Games that are coming in 2013. County council also passed a motion put forth by Kingsville Mayor

New WECSSA champions: LDSS Lady Lions hockey team Sarah Weyrauch Special/Leamington Post Wi n n i n g t h e f i r s t t w o games of their best of three series with Lâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Essor, the LDSS girlsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; hockey team became the new WECSSA champions last week. The Lady Lions played their first game at Lâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Essor last Wednesday. The game was hard fought by both teams, which seemed to be equally matched. Goals were netted by Paige Makey (2), Kaitlyn Pinch and Karly Knight to make the score even in the third period. The game was won in a nerve-racking shootout in which Kayla Lindsay and Paige Makey scored. Both of Lâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Essorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s

shots were stopped by Carleigh Manning to result in a 5-4 victory for the Lions. The second game was played at home last Thursday. Both teams gave it their all, but the Lady Lions outskated, and generally outplayed their competition to reach the victory. Jillian Isles acted as the star of the night, scoring an impressive four goals. It was a team effort though, as Kayla Lindsay netted a beautiful breakaway goal. This victory marks their third WECSSA win in the last four years. Congratulations Girls. They played against the St. Christopher of Sarnia team at home Tuesday for the SWOSSA Championship.

Nelson Santos where there would be $250,000 set aside for a rate stabilization fund, $350,000 for a joint jobs fund with Windsor and $140,000 so that an Intelligent Communities Forum could be hosted. Windsor-Essex County is one of the top seven â&#x20AC;&#x153;Intelligent Communitiesâ&#x20AC;? in the world, something that Warden Tom Bain was recognized

at a recent meeting with colleagues. He said representatives from other counties were telling him to â&#x20AC;&#x153;go for itâ&#x20AC;? in tr ying to be number one and that he was â&#x20AC;&#x153;beaming with prideâ&#x20AC;? to have the word out there about Essex Countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s success thus far. The ICF coming to the area is due, in part, to the expansion of the broadband econ-

omy but Amherstburg Mayor Wayne Hurst wanted to ensure all areas of the county get high-speed Internet capabilities. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We still have gaps out there that have to be dealt with,â&#x20AC;? he said.

able with the budget overall. Essex Deputy Mayor Richard Meloche was in favor of the 1.5% increase, adding that a rate stabilization fund is necessary to combat costs â&#x20AC;&#x153;that could get out of lineâ&#x20AC;? including winter control and fuel costs. Meloche added such a fund could help â&#x20AC;&#x153;soften the blowâ&#x20AC;? for next year, where early estimates have a 2.8% increase on the table for 2012.

Leamington Post â&#x20AC;˘ Wednesday, March 9, 2011

Shops seek protection from â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;dirtyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; union tactics Don Robinet QMI Agency An organization that represents open shop contractors is critical of what it says are provincial policies that are unfairly shutting them out of work. Representatives from Merit Ontario visited Chatham as part of a provincial tour to drum up support among nonunionized contractors. While representatives acknowledge the right of workers to form and join unions, they say provincial rules and union tactics are creating an uneven playing field for non-union employers. Tristan Emmanuel, sales manager of Merit Ontario, says part of the problem is that unions representing trades can be certified through a card-based system, rather than having a secret workplace vote as in other types of employment. The card-based system is easily open to abuse and manipulation, says Emmanuel. He says there have been cases where unions have represented cards as raffle tickets for workers for a chance to win tools. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They thought it was a raffle ticket, but it was union card,â&#x20AC;? says Emmanuel. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Card-based certification is a significant threat to your bottom line,â&#x20AC;? he said to a gathering of open shop employers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not much you can do under the current legislation.â&#x20AC;? He adds: â&#x20AC;&#x153;The law isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t interpreted to benefit you in any way.â&#x20AC;?

Emmanuel says a small company could easily face expenses of between $50,000 and $100,000 to challenge a union application for certification. He says he prefers the secret vote system used in most workplaces where union drives occur. Votes are held on a designated day with plenty of advanced notice to give all the workers a chance to have their say. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They (workers) can still join a union, but it gives them a chance to check out the facts for a life-altering change.â&#x20AC;? He said Merit Ontario was created to lobby on behalf on independent nonunionized employers, a group he feels has been left out of government discussions. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We in the open shop movement havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been politically engaged,â&#x20AC;? says Emmanuel. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We do not have a unified voice. The province pays attention to unions. We need to form our own union.â&#x20AC;? Emmanuel says open shop contractors represent 70% of the construction industry and says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;We need fair representation in the laws that are being passed.â&#x20AC;? He is also critical of the provincial government for establishing the Ontario College of Trades, which was created in 2009. The college is a self-regulated body for skilled trades. The college is a â&#x20AC;&#x153;bureaucratic nightmareâ&#x20AC;? that will require workers to acquire a â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;ticketâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; for every type of work they do - from carpentry, to painting and papering, to drywall and electrical work, Emmanuel says.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Workers will need a variety of different licenses and more inspectors will be needed,â&#x20AC;? says Emmanuel. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You can envision a situation where a guy will need five different licenses.â&#x20AC;? Emmanuel says the college was created in response to unskilled, selfemployed workers who are trying to pass themselves off as skilled. Still, the college is hurting legitimate contractors, he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Set aside at least $5,000 annually for licensing fees.â&#x20AC;? Robert McAllister, a Merit Ontario board member, says trades workers sign union cards without knowing what theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re doing. He says organizers sometimes tell the workers theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re only signing a card to apply for work in a different location when they get laid off from their current job. He adds the cards are sometimes signed in a social setting, such as while having drinks after work and may have a blank date so that it can be filled out later to the unionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s benefit. â&#x20AC;&#x153; E m p l oy e e s n e e d t o u n d e rstand theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re signing a card for their employer,â&#x20AC;? says McAllister. He says the card-based system requires 55% of employee support to certify a union, but the union can file on a day when only a few of a companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s employees are on the job, meaning itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s possible to certify a union with a minority of employees signing cards. He adds companies have two business days to challenge a certification of their workplace, or, by default, the union is recognized by the Ontario Labour Board.

Ryan Griffioen, Ontario representative for the Chatham-based Christian Labour Association of Canada, says heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s aware of some â&#x20AC;&#x153;dirty tacticsâ&#x20AC;? used by some unions, but says the CLAC is not one of them. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are examples of many dirty tricks,â&#x20AC;? says Griffioen, including getting workers drunk in order to sign a card, or the â&#x20AC;&#x153;divide and conquer methodâ&#x20AC;? to separate workers into small groups to pressure those who are resistant to signing. He also says workers sometimes sign a union card not realizing theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re joining a union. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t always read whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in front of them,â&#x20AC;? says Griffioen. He says the raffle trick is one thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sometimes used, where a worker signs a union card to get into a draw to win a toolbox or other items. He also says that under a card-based system, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s possible for a company to become unionized when just a small fraction of employees sign a union card. It all depends how many workers who have signed a union card are working on the date of application. As an example, Griffioen says a company with 50 employees might have only five of those employees working on a Sunday to get a job done. If three of those five have signed a union card, the union can be certified, even if the other 47 workers havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t signed a card. Griffioen didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t identify any unions that use those tactics, but says the CLAC has no part of them.

The CLAC represents about 47,000 workers, some of whom work in construction. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We operate under a different philosophy,â&#x20AC;? says Griffioen. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want people who donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want us to represent them.â&#x20AC;? Karl Lovett, membership development marketing representative for Local 773 of International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers, says some unions may engage in unscrupulous tactics, but not the IBEW, which represents 380 workers in Chatham-Kent, Windsor and Essex County. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re pretty strict about what we do,â&#x20AC;? says Lovett, who adds thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no point in trying to trick a worker into joining a union he doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to join. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everything is legitimate,â&#x20AC;? says Lovett. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If he doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to be there, why have him?â&#x20AC;? Lovett says union organizing meetings are often recorded to protect them against allegations they are using unfair tactics. He says sometimes workers are intimidated by employers and say they didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know what they were doing when they signed a union card, even though they were. He also says there have been cases where workers have recorded their bosses telling them the shop will close or that they will be fired if they join the union, which is illegal under labour laws. Lovett says the worker is pressured into saying, â&#x20AC;&#x153;It thought I was signing something else.â&#x20AC;?

Digital access to neurosurgeons around the clock, says Hoy Leamington Post MPP Pat Hoy says trauma patients across Ontario now have access to a neurosurgeon 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, with the latest launch of E-health Remote Consultation System. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This process previously operated on a patchwork system of phone callsmeaning patients often needed to be transferred to be seen in person for a consultation,â&#x20AC;? said Hoy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our program now significantly reduces the need for patients to travel within and out-ofprovince, or out-of-country for treatment. Since January 2009, 1,558 patient transfers have been avoided, saving more than $50 million.â&#x20AC;? The Emergency Neuro Image Transfer System (ENITS) is a centralized

Letter to the editor Veterans, Legion waiting for legislation The government of the day, through the Minister of Veterans Affairs, has made several announcements and promises on Bill C-55 (New Veterans Charter), which has received first reading in the House of Commons but has not progressed to the committee level. Similar announcements and promises have been made on Bill480 by the minister of finance (Removal of GST from poppies and wreath purchases) for which no legislation has yet been tabled. As your readers know, the tabling and passage of these bills with Royal Assent will not be possible should the government decide to call an election. The Royal Canadian Legion has written to both ministers on the matters of legislative procedure and has received assurances these matters are being looked into. These bills, however, may die on the order paper if an election is called and leave Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s disabled veterans, their families and The Royal Canadian Legion without the legislation they all need.

e-Health online consultation system that makes remote neuro-consultations easier, faster and more accurate. Hospitals across the province send head scan images to ENITS where they can be accessed and reviewed by neurosurgeons anytime, anywhere. Seventy neurosurgeons at 13 neurosurgical centres provide online consultations to acute care centres through this system. As part of the Open Ontario plan, the government is committed to finding savings that can be used toward the health care on which Ontario families rely and providing more access to these services, while improving quality and accountability for patients. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a significant milestone for improving patient care in Ontario through

eHealth. It means that people right across the province will benefit from neurological specialists regardless of geography. It also means that unnecessary transfers will be avoided, sparing families needless travel, expense and worry,â&#x20AC;? said Health Minister Deb Matthews. â&#x20AC;&#x153;ENITS provides the critical infrastructure physicians require to eliminate unnecessary transfers by connecting them to specialized neurosurgeons across the province in real time. This is a perfect example of how collaboration within the health care system is changing the way patients receive care,â&#x20AC;? said Greg A. Reed,_President and CEO of eHealth Ontario. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hospitals will now be able to offer patients specialized consultations with on-call neurosurgeons across the

Writing competition set for children QMI Agency The Writersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Union of Canada has launched its 15th annual Writing for Children Competition, which invites writers to submit a piece for children up to 1,500 words in the English language that has not previously been published in any format. A $1,500 prize will be awarded to an unpublished Canadian writer, and the entries of the winner and finalists will be submitted to three publishers of childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s books for c o n s i d e rat i o n . T h e d e a d l i n e f o r

Writing for children runs the gamut from picture books to young adult stories, with topics as varied as is found in any other genre. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The most enduring writing for children treats them seriously and never talks down to or underestimates the young reader,â&#x20AC;? said Kelly Duffin, the Unionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s executive director.

travel rules helped reduce government expenses by $30 million last year, and is expected to save an additional $10 million this year. ¡The province recently announced the merger of two agencies-Infrastructure Ontario and Ontario Realty Corporation-which will save Ontarians about $5 million annually. ¡Since January 2009 2,404 head trauma neurosurgical cases have been referred to ENITS. ¡eHealth Ontario and the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care combined have provided $2.3 million to support the development and adoption of ENITS.

What's your cough telling you? As winter drags on, so does that scratching in your throat — so at what point should you worry? Marilyn Linton QMI Agency Bark, hack, sputter, rattle, whoop! Sure, coughs are a normal part of having a cold or flu, but when should you see a doctor about that hacking, and what might your particular cough say about you? As for cough medicine, should you believe all the ads -- or can a teaspoon of honey do the trick as well as a $15 bottle from your local pharmacy? Coughing is the most common symptom for which patients seek medical attention, says Dr. Robert Hyland, a respirologist at Toronto’s St. Michael’s Hospital. Even animals cough occasionally to clear their throats or airways, but coughing that continues long after a cold should be investigated. Healthy people who get a cough that lasts longer than six weeks usually have a post-viral cough, explains Hyland, who is also past-president of the Ontario Thoracic Society, “You get an infection and it goes into your chest. You get a cough, get sort of better and, though you have no fever and the sputum goes away, you are still coughing. In some cases this is an indication that this person has very mild asthma.” A virus, he explains, can attack the tracheal bronchial lining; the cells can become damaged and the lining inflamed. “The irritation causes coughing and the more you cough, the more

you irritate it. It’s a vicious cycle. Sometimes, whether someone is asthmatic or not, treatment with anti-inflammatory inhalers can interrupt the cycle.” Coughs are known as productive if they produce phlegm or mucus. “The common belief is that the greener the mucus is, the more likely it is to be a bacterial infection and therefore the more likely antibiotics would be of benefit,” says Hyland. “But that’s not always true, as you can have greeny phlegm with a viral infection.” A productive cough can also be a sign of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). People who have COPD have enough to deal with, but when they end up with chronic bronchitis they also have a cough that is filled with thick, coloured, hardto-raise phlegm. COPD benefits from early prognosis and treatment. And if you’re a smoker with COPD, stop now. Coughs can also be due to allergies, says Hyland. “Lungs are the one internal organ in the body that’s directly exposed to the environment. So every time you take a breath, you’re also taking in any gaseous or particulate matter that might be in the air. The cough is a mechanism for getting that stuff out.” Assuming you don’t need antibiotics, what should you look for in a remedy? Expectorants claim

to decrease the phlegm thickness but Hyland doesn’t believe there’s enough evidence to back up the claim. Medications which contain dextromethorphan may sup-press a cough and honey is a favourite that can calm that throat tickle. In most people, coughing is benign, “but there can be complications. People can break ribs and blood vessels,” says Hyland.

Call the doc

According to the University of Maryland Medical Center, you should call the doc when you have a violent cough that begins suddenly; cough up blood; have cough-accompanied shortness of breath; cough with fever, abdominal swelling or thick and smelly green phlegm; a cough that produces a high pitched sound (called stridor) when inhaling; or a cough in infants less than three months old. For more on coughs, go to www.umm.edu. Take the cough test at familydoctor.orgto see if your cough is an emergency.

Cough causes

Get the right diagnosis so you can treat the cause behind the cough. Causes of coughing include allergies, asthma, COPD, acid-reflux disease, cigarette smoking, postnasal drip, a respiratory tract infection or the aspiration of foreign matter into the lungs.

DeSoto: Chrysler’s unloved stepchild Peter Epp QMI Agency In hindsight, DeSoto never had a chance when it was introduced as part of the Chrysler Corporation family in late 1928. Named for a 16th-century Spanish explorer, DeSoto was to be Walter P. Chrysler’s midpriced car division in his new company, comfortably sitting between the value-priced Plymouth Division and the pricey Chrysler Division. But shortly after DeSoto was introduced for the 1929 model year, Walter had the chance to buy the assets of Dodge Brothers. The Dodges had been building cars since 1914 and had a reputation for good engineering and manufacturing; Walter intuitively understood that the Dodge name contained great value. Yet had he purchased Dodge Brothers a few months earlier, there would have been no need for DeSoto. So now Chrysler Corporation had two midpriced car divisions, and DeSoto was almost immediately treated as an unloved stepchild. Initially, it was determined that of the two divisions, DeSoto cars would be less expensive to purchase than Dodge. In that first model year, DeSoto produced seven different models, including sedans, business coupes, a roadster and a convertible. Prices ranged from about $845 to $885. The models were outfitted with the DeSoto Six, a six-cylinder engine that had a rating of 55 horsepower. Chrysler Corporation’s marketing department immediately promoted DeSoto as having “value.” In a magazine advertisement published in November 1928, the DeSoto Six was described as being a “product of Chrysler engineering and manufacturing genius - gives so much more beauty, quality and performance ability for so little cost - that its greater value in the field of low priced sixes has been instantly recognized and generously rewarded.” Truth be told, the DeSoto was probably a very good car, and in those years competed against the likes of Pontiac, Nash and Oldsmobile. In its first year, DeSoto sold 81,065 cars - a remarkable launch.

In its almost 32 years of production, DeSoto’s best sales year was 1950 when 133,854 units were sold. When the impact of the Great Depression started to be felt in late ‘29 and early ‘30, DeSoto’s sales slid, and this wasn’t unexpected. In fact, both DeSoto and Dodge sold about 25,000 units each in 1932, which was a horrible year for the car business in Detroit. Chrysler Corporation still had higher hopes for Dodge, however, and in 1933 reversed the price structure for the two divisions, making Dodges more affordable and DeSotos more expensive. Because DeSoto was nudged closer to the ultra-expensive Chryslers, the division was compelled to share in a radical concept for 1934 - the Airflow. At the time of its introduction, the Airflow design for Chrysler and DeSoto left the American consumer breathless with surprise. Here was a car that was so modern looking, so futuristic, so well thought out, so... and yet the public was almost frightened by it. Indeed, the Airflows were not

like anything else on the road in the mid-1930s, and despite the lasting technical breakthroughs that were achieved with their design, their appearance was so alien that their sales never met expectations. Walter Chr ysler immediately ordered the Airflows’ radical streamlining altered for the 1935 model year to make them more palatable for the motoring public. By 1938, all of the Airflow’s styling cues were gone, and the cars sold by the Chrysler and DeSoto divisions looked as conventional as any other car offered by Detroit. Chrysler Division had been hurt by the Airflow experience, but DeSoto had been deeply wounded. Dodge and Plymouth divisions, meanwhile, had prospered and were contributing to the bulk of the corporation’s revenue and profits. It may have been tempting for Chrysler Corporation to ditch DeSoto then and there, but several factors would have prevented such action. To begin

with, sales of Chrysler-built vehicles had eclipsed that of Fordbuilt vehicles since the early 1930s. Chrysler Corporation was the second-biggest Detroit automaker. Secondly, Ford was fighting back. In 1938 it introduced a new mid-priced division, Mercury, to fight the likes of GM’s Pontiac and Oldsmobile divisions and Chrysler’s Dodge and DeSoto divisions. And so any talk of DeSoto’s departure would have been quietly squelched. Between 1938 and 1942, DeSoto models were mostly bland copies of Plymouth, Dodge and Chrysler. DeSoto shared in the corporation’s innovations and engineering advancements, of which there were many, but remained a rather stodgy-looking car. The exception may have been the 1942 model that featured hide-away headlights. The hidden headlights may have been a gimmick, but they set DeSoto apart from its corporate brethren... at least for a few months. With the onset of America’s involvement in the

Second World War, domestic car production in Detroit was curtailed and only 24,771 DeSoto cars were built for 1942. Following the war, there was a pent-up demand for new cars and DeSoto shared in the sales bonanza. DeSoto’s design was basically a rehash of 1942, although there was some innovation. “Gyrol Fluid Drive” and “Tip-Toe Hydraulic Shift” were introduced to take the work out of shifting. And DeSoto offered a new nine-passenger Suburban that looked like an elongated sedan. It had a folding third seat, roof luggage rack and two-tone paint, and was much used by the taxi industry. With the onset of the 1950s, DeSoto was allowed to blossom. These are the DeSoto models that are perhaps best remembered, offering toothy chrome grills and pleasant body styles. Indeed, the 1950 model year would be the very apex for DeSoto sales -- 133,854 units sold. When Chrysler introduced its Forward Look for the 1955

model year, DeSoto shared in the new design, which marked a significant departure from the ‘54 model year. Also gone for DeSoto was its venerable six-cylinder engine. DeSoto would now offer powerful V8 engines only. The top-priced DeSoto in 1955 was the FireFlite, which offered a 200-horsepower V8 with a four-barrel carb. Those FireFlite models with automatic transmissions were equipped with a “Flite” control lever on the instrument panel. Desoto enjoyed stellar sales in 1956 with the introduction of the Adventurer. It offered a 320-horsepower engine, and the automatic transmission was operated through a set of push buttons. For 1957, DeSoto sought to broaden its appeal with a shorter wheelbase FireSweep, which accounted for 35% of the division’s sales. Yet despite the success of its Forward Look, Chrysler Corporation was faced with some big problems. It had lost its No. 2 status to Ford earlier in the decade, and it was facing a sales squeeze. The Forward Look had provided a muchneeded sales reprieve, but a significant economic recession in 1958 hit Chrysler harder than GM and Ford, and the impact was the strongest on Chrysler’s weakest link, DeSoto, whose sales were the lowest in 20 years. Although ‘59 was supposed to be a better year, DeSoto sales failed to rebound, and on Nov. 30, 1960 - exactly 50 years ago - Chrysler Corporation announced that it would be discontinuing the DeSoto line. Pa r t o f D e S o t o’s f a i l u r e could be attributed to the corporation itself. In the mid1 9 5 0 s, D o d g e w a s p e r m i tted to introduce an upscale model that intruded into DeSoto’s price territory. As well, the introduction of the DeSoto FireSweep for 1957 was a tactical error on the part of Chrysler. FireSweep was no more than a restyled Dodge, and the public knew it. Chrysler had made the same mistake that GM would in the mid-1980s with its infamous “cookie cutter cars”, but DeSoto - perhaps unloved from the start - was forced to take the fall.

Rural residents arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;anecdotalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Dalton McGuinty needs to educate and inform his ministers, friends and colleagues in positions of authority, such as top doc Dr. Arlene King, Cabinet ministers Wilkinson, Duguid and the entire ministry staff in every district office in Ontario -- but especially in Toronto -- on the existence of real live people in rural areas of the province of Ontario. Daltonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s representatives use this anecdote word a lot...a whole lot. It squeaks out from almost every character we hear on the radio shows, in sound bites and in news items.

Solar projects need to get fast-tracked Ontarioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new Green Energy Act and the accompanying Feed In tariff programs are unfairly penalizing our Ontario farmers. A significant number of FIT/MICROFIT applications to produce clean reliable energy come from Ontario farmers. They have invested heavily only to find out that there are major obstacles in getting connected to the power grid. All this while speculators, developers and big business (e.g. Sam-

sung) tie up grid capacity with projects that may never happen. Farmers are â&#x20AC;&#x153;shovel readyâ&#x20AC;? and are stymied. We need to get these projects fast tracked. The farm community is one of the pillars of our economy, providing us with local grown food. What group is better qualified to harvest the sun? The fact a family farm business will benefit financially from generating clean energy is a good thing! That money will go back into the local community, creating jobs and new opportunities. As a supplier of solar photovoltaic equipment to the farm community, successfully completing both F.I.T. and Micro Fit projects, I understand the challenges they face. We need the Ontario Power Authority, Hydro One, local distribution companies and the Ontario government to remove these obstacles. We all remember the blackout of 2003. A strong electric power grid supported by small renewable sources is a good investment in our future. Our farmers must be allowed to succeed. We all will benefit.
