Oosterhoff, PCs power to majority By Joanne McDonald For NewsNow Taking a seat as the youngest MPP in provincial history in 2016, PC incumbent Sam Oosterhoff, 20, was returned to power Thursday in a definitive provincial election win in Niagara West. The province changed directions as the PCs took the helm from the Liberals’ 15year rule to form a majority government with 76 seats in the 124-
seat legislature and the NDP became the Official Opposition for only the second time history. Oosterhoff won the riding with 24,361 votes against NDP Curtis Fric, 13,744 votes; Liberal Joe Kanee, 4,933 votes; Green Party Jessica Tillmanns, 2,578 votes; Libertarian Stefanos Karatopis, 451 votes; and Multicultural Geoffrey Barton, 127 votes. He will have the sole
PC voice in the Niagara Region. Three of the four ridings selected NDP candidates including Jeff Burch winning in Niagara Centre, Wayne Gates in Niagara Falls, and Jennie Stevens in St. Catharines. To the west, Hamilton went NDP as well. “I am honoured by the mandate given by the constituents of Niagara West and will work each and every day for their interests,
concerns and priorities,” said Oosterhoff on Thursday while celebrating with family and supporters at the Smithville Legion. He was back at his desk Friday morning drafting a letter to be sent to Premier-elect Doug Ford, outlining priorities including a new West Lincoln Memorial Hospital. “I will keep fighting until West Niagara gets the new hospital we deserve,”
said Oosterhoff, adding the list of Niagara needs includes, “GO Train service to Niagara through Grimsby, Beamsville, St. Catharines and Niagara Falls; reduced taxes on job creators, less red tape, competitive industrial hydro rates, more long-term care beds in Niagara West and a more affordable life for all constituents in the riding and across Ontario.

From Page 1 Thursday night at the Legion the air was electric as the results rolled in, a far cry from two years ago said riding association president Alan Sakach when they opened the door to the successful byelection campaign in an office without electricity. “When we opened the campaign office we had no electricity. The byelection had been called. We had three weeks until e-day,” Sakach said. “Saturday was the nomination and we opened the campaign office Monday.”
Leader Tim Hudak. Oosterhoff has since served on two standing committees during his time as MPP, and has handled two critic portfolios including science and digital government. In November 2017 he introduced his first Private Member’s Bill, the Compassionate Care Act which calls for the creation of a provincewide framework devoted to hospice care. Oosterhoff said Thursday his door is open and accessible to all.

“From the beginning Sam impressed all the party activists with his intelligence and commitment and principled character,” Sakach said. Oosterhoff said the dynamics of this campaign were very different from the 2016 byelection and he was impressed by all the candidates and the cordial debates. Two years ago, then 18, Oosterhoff defeated his NDP rival by more than 9,000 votes to win the Niagara West seat replacing former PC

Is your mortgage coming due this Summer? Let’s (not) talk rate!
When shopping for a fixed-rate mortgage, most people focus on the interest rate, with no careful scrutiny of the mortgage contract terms and conditions. But, did you know that there are actually two interest rates attached to every mortgage contract? I refer to these two equally-important rates as “the rate going in”, and “the rate going out”. “The rate going in” is the rate that gets the most attention and discussion; “The rate going out” is the rate used to calculate the prepayment penalty, should you break the mortgage prior to its maturity date. Two interesting facts: - a “5-year fixed-term” mortgage is the term of choice for most homebuyers and existing homeowners; - 70% of “5-year fixed-term” mortgages are broken after 3 years & 7 months for unplanned life events such as divorce, job loss, and illness. Before you sign for what you think is a great 5-year fixed rate with your bank or credit union, ask what the “rate going out” is. And, make sure that you understand how this rate is used to calculate the penalty. Any perceived savings of a low-rate offer could possibly cost you much more in penalties, should your plans change before the 5-year term is completed. I offer you expert mortgage advice, term lengths from 6 months to 10 years, and unique mortgage solutions from over 20 mortgage providers, including the large banks and local credit unions. When you work with me, you are guaranteed that we will have the “rate going out” discussion! The best part - There is no cost to you for my service, as I am compensated by the lenders for bringing them your business. Talk to us. You’ll be impressed.

Lincoln setting Ontario St. reinvention base By Mike Williscraft NewsNow While in the baby steps stage, the Town of Lincoln started what will be a decades-long process of reinventing Beamsville’s Ontario Street Corridor. At Monday night’s Planning Committee meeting, officials got their first look at the “Ontario Street Vision”, a document outlining a complete inventory of all lands from Greenlane south into and including the downtown core. Noting transition in this area will be driven by developers, Mayor Sandra Easton said council wants to have its plan and infrastructure ready as new projects come on line. “Yes, there are provincial policies for planning but that does
not mean there is not opportunities for local initiatives,” said Easton, adding the consultation will be extensive, not unlike that which unfolded for Prudhomme’s Landing’s development. “We want residents to think about the kind of change they want to see. We want to give them more detail and that is what people want, detail. Is there going to be height? If so, where? It does make sense to have height in different areas so you don’t eat up all the ground.” Lincoln CAO Mike Kirkopoulos said the municipality looks at itself as a facilitator in instances such as Ontario Street. “This will take public and private sector commitment and investment,” said Kirkopoulos. “This is a long term, transfor-
mational project – that must happen with the community, not alone. We have heard the community wants to see Ontario Street evolve and change, spruced up, and beautified.” To that end, a key component could be a renovation to Rannie Square to increase its use and improve parking in the core with public washrooms added to make it a user-friendly cyclist stop. “There are things like Rannie Square that pose some great opportunities. For instance, it is close to the BDSS site, it currently houses parking for the downtown. It is close to our downtown businesses, so using it would be important,” said Kirkopoulos. The “vision” will come to full council next week.

Page 8 • News Now • Thursday, June 14, 2018 GBF Community Services is more than a food bank, a donation centre, or a retail store – it is the end result of this community’s outpouring of love, care and kindness. We are a family, and as a family we can get our most vulnerable back on their feet in times of great need, and to feel the warmth and kindness that the Grimsby community is known for. Your generosity is key to the success of our future plans to help families, individuals, children, and seniors. With the passion and dedication shown by some many in our community, we will make a difference. Here are just some of the ways you can help:
SPREAD THE WORD – Let your friends, neighbours, and family know about GBF Community Services and our programs. Encourage them to volunteer. Like us on Facebook and share it with friends. DONATE FOOD AND HYGIENE PRODUCTS – Food donations are at the core of our work. Non-food items, such as paper goods and cleaning supplies, are also welcome. Consider hosting a donation drive in your neighbourhood or with your colleagues at work. DONATE TIME AND TALENT – Volunteers are vital to GBF Community Services’ operations and contribute in countless ways. There are endless opportunities to get involved and share your talents. MONETARY & IN-KIND DONATIONS – Financial donations sustain our Food Bank and enrich the larger community by providing nourishment, dignity, and a sense of sharing for all involved. In-kind donations come in many forms. These donations allow us to provide very necessary programs and services to individuals and families going through difficult times. BECOME A MONTHLY DONOR – Monthly giving is one of the easiest and most effective ways by which to make a positive impact on our community. Help us bring more fresh food and helpful services to our community by joining today. Please call at (905) 309-5664 ext. 33. It’s easy to think we do not know anyone who experiences real struggle and hardship, yet there are people all around us who do. These people struggle every day, but unless they open up about the burdens they carry, it is often difficult to recognize the true need in our community. Whatever the reason for facing this kind of hardship – be it high rent and ever-increasing utility costs, cost-of-living increases with no increase in wages, loss of job, or unexpected illness or injury – a toll is taken on those who struggle to make ends meet, sometimes leaving them unable to concentrate on their loved ones’ well-being, let alone their own.
GBF COMMUNITY SERVICES DIRECT INVESTMENT INTO GRIMSBY PROGRAMS GBF Community Services is looking forward to the year that we can invest one million dollars on an annual basis back into Grimsby. While it may take us a few years to attain that mark, with your help we can reach this milestone together. FORECAST 2018

While Grimsby continues to flounder with the most simple of planning tasks, the municipality to the east continues to provide an excellent example of how things should be thought out and done. Case in point, the new “Ontario Street Vision” which inventories all between Greenlane and the downtown Beamsville core, will give a quality rudder by which to steer future development in that corridor. The vision is a detailed outline of what could happen and will allow the municipality to steer new projects with an eye to making things on their wish list come true. Parking issues, traffic congestion, land uses, are all taken into consideration. These, too, are constants in Grimsby both at Winston Road and int the core. It would seem a similar assessment is approriate in Grimsby, perhaps instead of focusing on the Nelles-Lynnwood stretch near WLMH. M.W.
Ok, let’s get WLMH on front burner Hospital. Hospital. Hospital. With Premier Ford and anybody but the Liberal disaster at the helm, Niagara West has a window to collectively jump through a window of opportunity along with Hamilton Health Sciences and West Lincoln Memorial Hospital. Absolutely nothing should deter time and attention away from this LONG OVERDUE (and I hate using caps in regular copy space) rebuild. Nothing! In my post election conversation with Sam Oosterhoff, it was the first thing I stressed. It was great to see he was already on top of it. He had gotten up at 6 a.m. to pen a letter to the newly elected Premier of Ontario outlining several pressing needs for this riding - with WLMH right at the top of the list. Do not construe this for a second to mean the whole thing should be built and complete in the next fouryear-term, not at all. As Sam noted, in his post-election discussion with Hamilton Health Sciences CEO Rob MacIsaac, it was pointed out there is a plan in motion. Yes, that is true, but the new provincial government can commit funding to get this thing locked onto the rails from which it will not be steered, slowed or derailed. HHS has done everything right, for years, just as WLMH predecessors did before them. When you look at the string of people who have worked tirelessly, for well over a decade in many cases, and realize just how much has gone into keeping WLMH’s heart beating (while basically in a Liberalinduced coma) is incredible. You know who you are and I don’t want to name
MIKE WILLISCRAFT a few because assuredly I would leave someone out and I do not want to do that. Just know, although the community may never realize who you are or what effort it took, they will nonetheless be appreciative for the next half century and beyond once the shiny, new WLMH is unveiled. Having covered and helped organize the rallies, sat on committees, covered the dozens of fundraising stories and many “holding pattern” announcements over 20 years, I can tell you Thursday’s PC win is our best chance for true optimism. Had the Liberals somehow weaseled their way back into power, it is likely they would have found some way to sidestep HHS’s rock solid planning process to allow them to execute everything wanted, except WLMH. Now, when the money flows around Hamilton Harbour and into Niagara via the HHS, residents can have some confidence the rebuild will continue to be front and centre of their redevelopment plans. Yes, GO is important, but it’s a fraction of what the new WLMH would mean to the area. GO will come with little or no nudging purely
off demand by external forces. In this case, the external force is Toronto, or the west side of the GTA, anyways. They usually get what they want and, luckily for Niagara, they finally see the need to reduce QEW traffic. The traffic volumes on the QE and Gardiner/Lakeshore heat things up to get political will in motion and, poof, GO gets the green light. When a minister of health is chosen, let’s get him or her down here (like people much smarter than I are not thinking about that already) and let’s showcase what is there and what it needs to be. I’ll even spring for lunch! When I think about all the hospital events in the last 10 years anyway, the vast majority have been dark and downright deflating as air continued to leak from the WLMH balloon. Maybe it is time for a WLMH Street Party, not unlike the one we did for The Tragically Hip’s last stand! Nothing but positivity! Get some speakers to tell people what will happen, get some definitives in there! Have some fun! Raise some money! Let’s go from “Condition Critical” to (and I can’t believe I am pulling out a 1945 Bing Crosby reference here, but) Ac-CentTchu-Ate the Positive!!! Hey Mark, 40 Public up for another run at an August street party? We have more time than last time and there are a ton of very supportive WLMH folks who would love to get on board! Premature? Maybe, but no time like the present. We have a window of opportunity and kicking and/or screaming let’s drag WLMH through it!!

June 24 open house
Upper Thirty School house hosts “reunion” By Joanne McDonald For NewsNow It took 40 years, but Evelyn and Mark Michener have finally graduated from North Grimsby S.S. No.6. They’ve been industrious students of architecture, engineering, construction, planning and plumbing. And through the decades, the drywall and the dust, they’ve created a magnificent and unique home, raising a family under the bell tower that for many years summoned the Upper Thirty community kids to class. Now 40 years later the house has been sold and the Micheners are moving on, taking their memories, but leaving a big part of their hearts, family history and the dedicated labour that has allowed the beautiful
historic building to be preserved for the next chapter and a new generation. Before they go, the Micheners want to extend an open invitation to the entire community to tour the house - former students, historians, neighbours, everyone is invited to visit during an open house planned for Sunday, June 24, 1-4 p.m. Next year, 2019, marks the centennial of the Upper Thirty School and the family wants to celebrate this landmark before they move. It was a hard decision to pull up roots, but the three Michener boys, Andrew, James and Stephen are grown, and Eva and Mark reached a point where they no longer needed so much space.
The first Upper Thirty school, constructed of logs, was built around 1800. A new frame school was opened in 1859 and the new brick school was built in 1919. The school closed in 1965 and after being used by children with disabilities and the local cadet corps, it was boarded up. The open house is Sunday, June 24 from 1 to 4 p.m. at
498 Elm Tree Road East, Grimsby (corner of Thirty Road.) “We want people to come and share their memories and memorabilia,” said Evelyn. Facebook - The Upper Thirty School Centennial North Grimsby.
