Major bust at legal Beamsville grow-op Two legal marijuana grow operations were shut down, assets seized, last Wednesday in a massive Niagara Regional Police raid. Oct. 4 members of the Gun, Gangs, and Grows Unit concluded an investigation into two Beamsville locations for unlawfully producing marijuana. Search warrants were obtained for 5377 King St. W. and 4390 South Service Rd. Police were aware that each of these locations had legitimate medical marijuana licences, however from the investigation, police learned that people were allegedly providing Health Canada with fraudulent information in order to obtain multiple medical marijuana licences for each address. As a result, these marijuana grow ops were found to be unlawful. “It was impressive. The police came in with transport trucks and front-end loaders,” said Chris Luke, who happened to be at a restaurant adjacent to one of the

bust locations. At approximately 3 p.m. police executed the search warrant at 5377 King Street. Police arrested ten people at this location. Subsequently, only two individuals were charged. The remaining eight people arrested were released from custody without being charged. At approximately 4:30 p.m. police executed the search warrant at 4390 South Service Road, and arrested two males. Both males were subsequently released from custody without being charged. A total of 13,955 marijuana plants with a street value of $13.95 million and 142 lbs of dried processed marijuana with a street value of $284,000 was seized. The large number of marijuana plants seized  exceeded the licence amount by over 10,000 plants.  Police continue the investigation. Although no persons were charged at 4390 South Service Rd, it is expected charges will be laid in the future.

Wills Chev sold, Tom retires

Stollery Group acquires Wills Chev By Mike Williscraft NewsNow There was one last deal for Tom Wills to sign off on before he retired last Thursday, and it was a doozy. Wills Chevrolet Buick GMC has been sold to the Stollery Group of Dealerships based in Barrie. While the Wills name will not be on the dealership’s ownership papers, the family’s influence will continue with Tom’s children, Thomas and Richard Wills as well as Sarah Camp, all continuing on with the organization. “Thank you to family, employees, friends and most of all my customers for almost 39 years of my dealer life. Words cannot express my feelings right now, I will miss the day to

day activity with all the great people, but am also looking forward to starting the next stage of my life with my wife, Valerie,” said Tom. “All the fantastic staff are still here to look after you. And yes, there will still be Wills’s in the business and they will continue to look after all of our friends. When G.W. Wills first opened a repair shop and gas station in Binbrook in 1920, who knew it would lead to a near-century legacy in car sales and service? The business has changed a lot, of course, starting with G.W. buying a General Motors franchise in 1937. His son Peter, Tom’s father, was 12 at the time. The family tradition

Medically assisted death topic at Trinity United Beamsville Maureen Taylor will lead a discussion on a very difficult topic, medically assisted death, at Trinity United Church in Beamsville on Sunday, Nov. 5. Taylor is a physician assistant in Infectious Diseases at Michael Garron Hospital in Toronto and an associate clinical professor in the PA program at McMaster

University in Hamilton. Maureen was married to Dr. Donald Low, who died of a brain tumour in September 2013, wishing until the end that he could have medical aid in dying. Since his death, Taylor has publicly advocated for the right of Canadians to choose an assisted death, serving as the

co-chair of the Provincial/Territorial Expert Advisory Group on Physician Assisted Dying. Taylor’s talk will address the many challenges facing Canadians as they struggle with the choices that assisted dying presents. The talk runs from 2-4 p.m. with freewill offering only. Refreshments to follow.

Fitting tribute

John Restas, local musician and close friend of noted Grimsby volunteer and community good guy Todd Pyper, who died in September, dropped by McNally House Hospice to hand off proceeds from a musical tribute day held in Todd’s honour at Different Strokes in Grimsby. More than $2,300 was raised for McNally House at that event. Executive director Pam Blackwood accepted the donation. “It’s all about the power of one. One caring person such as you, one volunteer, one staff member, one donation… one genuine act of kindness. But those ‘ones’, when multiplied by compassion of hundreds of others, are making all the difference in the lives of our neighbours in need of assistance.”

Are you prepared for the next round of OSFI mortgage regulation?

GBF was awarded $5,000 from the Rural Kids Grant Program. This is an initiative of the Ontario Association of Food Banks whose focus is for food banks to devlop or grow a children’s nutrition program that helps increase amount of fresh, healthy food available to children in rural communities across Ontario.

It’s difficult to believe it’s been one whole year since OSFI introduced the mandatory mortgage qualifying “Stress Test” for insured mortgages, which affected many homebuyers - the most notably affected group being those entrylevel buyers with less than 20% downpayment. Now, one year later, OSFI is taking aim at uninsured mortgages, by proposing a similar “Stress Test” for conventional mortgage applications. The new “Stress Test” qualifying rate for uninsured mortgages will be the mortgage contract rate plus 2%. As an example, if you are applying for a 7-year fixed-rate mortgage at 3.79% (your contract rate), you will be required to qualify at the OSFI “Stress Test” rate, which, in this example, equals 5.79% ! Expected to be finalized by the end of October, this latest round of OSFI regulatory intervention is expected to come into effect in 2 to 3 months. What does this mean for you? If you are planning to apply for a mortgage in the New Year for the purpose of buying a home, or refinancing your current home, I strongly encourage you to consult with me now, to determine how this “2% + Stress Test” qualification may affect your future borrowing ability. More importantly, if you expect your household income to substantially decrease in the coming years, due to retirement or some other change in your employment, then it may be advisable to set up a mortgage and/or home equity line of credit now, before your income level changes. Don’t let this latest round of OSFI regulation catch you off guard! Talk to Us. You’ll be Impressed.

Local cyclists earn new bikes NIagara Regional Police Sgt. Dave Bribel can spot a winner when he sees one. Case in point, Nova McKinney, 7, of Vineland and Emerson Melander, 6, of Winona both proved to be winners in a specail program Bribel conducted over this past summer with help of the John Howard Society and Canadian Tire Grimsby. “I ran this program when I was in Fort Erie. There it was called ‘Using Your Head’,” said Bribel. “When I am on patrol, I would just keep a lookout for kids doing it right, meaning wearing their helmets when

on their bikes or skateboards.” Bribel would stop and talk to the kids and give them a $2 Tim Hortons gift certificate for their troubles. Then, from all the kids who were chosen over the summer months, two names were drawn for two bikes sponsored by the John Howard Society (JHS). “This is something we are 100 per cent behind,” said Jay Gemmell, executive director of JHS. “Once Canadian Tire found out we were doing this they were very supportive. It was just “how can we help’.

sible. Seconds count in a fire or rescue situation, and time lost en route from traffic can make a difference. Be courteous. Yield the right of way when safe to do so and allowing the volunteer firefighter to respond as soon as possible may help save a life. These firefighters are our neighbours, business owners, family and friends they are a dedicated group of people who put their lives on hold to respond to local emergency‘s. This information about the flashing green lights is important because the municipality is growing and a lot of new people may not understand what the green light on a vehicle represents. We ask that everyone who drives in West Lincoln to support our firefighters by being courteous and yielding the right of way to them when their green lights are flashing in response to an emergency. Seconds count!!!

Thanks Firefighters! “Hands On” Healthcare

By Chief Dennis Fisher Do you know what it means if you see a car with a flashing green light in its window? The flashing green lights you might see in the front window of vehicles means that those drivers are volunteer firefighters on their way to an emergency call. If you see a car with a flashing green light, please be courteous and yield the right of way. When you see a flashing green light in your rear-view mirror, pull over. The West Lincoln Fire & Emergency Services is comprised of 47 volunteer firefighters. The department is based out of two fire stations fire headquarters in Smithville and the other station in Caistor Centre. When an emergency occurs, our volunteer firefighters are paged. They respond immediately by activating their flashing green lights on their personal vehicle and driving to their designated fire station as quickly and safely as pos-

Dutch biz sets Lincoln roots

Town of Lincoln officials, local business operators and ErfGoed representatives were on hand at last month’s announcement.

Fire Prevention Week October 8 - 14, 2017

Seeds planted last year are developing just as Town of Lincoln officials had hoped - with new business growth. Investments in the business sector continue in the Town of Lincoln with the most recent by ErfGoed, an international leader in the manufacture and installation of cultivation floors for greenhouses. ErfGoed is based in the Netherlands, with Lincoln being their first land acquisition in North America. The relationship with ErfGoed is a direct result of the Netherlands delegation by Lincoln’s Council and staff in fall of 2016. “ErfGoed’s decision to invest in Lincoln sends a clear message that our community has a lot to offer. Our priority is to grow and diversify our economy, and this investment solidifies the importance of building international relationships that promote our community as investment ready,” said Mayor Sandra Easton.

The delegation served to identify the role that agriculture can play in tourism, build relationships with foreign-based business, develop better understanding of new or innovative technologies, the difference the horticulture sector can make in a community – what is each of their role, and enhanced and expanded government relations. ErfGoed is a key supplier to many Lincoln and Niagarabased greenhouses. With direct land acquisition, ErfGoed will continue to grow and expand its business in Lincoln. In 2014, Council identified economic development as a priority. Lincoln has one of the most diversified economies in Niagara. Council has stated the importance of ensuring the long-term sustainability of any community falls with its focus on ensuring that its community is varied in terms of opportunity and is also a complete community – one where people can live, work, play and grow.

Surplus crop

Niagara Regional Police cleared out thousands of marijuana plants over and above what two Beamsville legal grow ops were licensed to grow last week. Transport trailers were filled with thousands upon thousands of plants.

What a difference a week makes Successive weeks, successive sales of two cornerstone businesses at opposite end of Niagara West - Inn on The Twenty et al and Wills Chevrolet Buick GMC. While Len Pennachetti and Tom Wills are at different points personally - Len is continuing on with his Cave Springs Cellar, while Tom is retiring - both will be missed from their respective perches on the local business scene. Century old family businesses are few and far between as Wills has been. A great deal of things have to happen to maintain that kind of longevity. To go from an empty building and dreams to what Len and his team have fashioned in an intensely competitive market is nothing short of amazing. Congratulations to both and best wishes in the future on your varied roads M.W.

One week left for Hat Trick Before we get to the mundane, quick note to point out the final deadline for Hat Trick Hockey is this coming Monday at 6 p.m. All entries must be in our Grimsby office - 49 Main St. W. - by that time. Once we have all the entries logged in, we pack them all up and send them off to our pool guru who does all the computer input, runs off the first set of standings and sends them back to me. This process can take a few weeks, so I would suspect our first set of entries will be published around midNovember. On that note, we had something new this year...a street challenge. Someone brought in a bunch of entries in one big pile from about a dozen homes on his street. Not sure what may have been put up in addition to bragging rights, but it is all in good fun!! Get your entries in and good luck to all!! ******* Still hockey related, but not exactly local...and I thought I better admit this now...I actually am semi-interested in watching the Maple Leafs this year. And that is saying something. No, I would not say I am a fan, but they are a good young team that will be Top 3 in the league in the next season or two. They have all the components, but still need a stud defenceman, and they will be set for 10 years. The good thing for Leafs fans is the potential longevity of the team’s upside. They have a bunch of good, young players. It is not like when they were a contender in early to mid-90s when their level of ability depended on who they bought on the free agent market in the off season. Nope, they are set for a long time. My Habs, not so much, but I’ll stick with them. But I actu-

MIKE WILLISCRAFT ally made a point of watching the Leafs-Hawks game Monday because I wanted to see how they stacked up against a genuine contender. As if they don’t come back and win in OT. Good for them! Back in the day, the Leafs I grew up with I really hated save for Darryl Sittler and Mike Palmateer. Sittler was a London Knight, a la Mitch Marner, and Mike was a Mike, so he had to be cool. Aside from Palmateer’s colourful style, my Palmateer fandom was cinched with a tiny little guy thought as Bantam-aged me might actually be him when I was standing in the lobby of Seaforth Arena in between tournament games. Our minor hockey system wore royal blue like the Leafs and I had “Goalie” on one arm and “Mike” on the other. To a five-year-old hockey fan that meant “he must be Mike Palmateer.” I got a tug on my jacket and turned around to look down and see this guy. Now, don’t get me wrong on this as I don’t want to ever compare myself to Jean Beliveau, but I remember being five and meeting Beliveau at a corporate photo op. With that I crouched down so I could hear him over the crowd. He asked me if I was Mike Palmateer. While I tried to figure out what would have made him think that, I

looked over and saw his mom with a big smile on her face. So I said, “yes”, and he asked for an autograph. He went to the snack bar, grabbed a napkin and asked to borrow a pen. I admit, I forged Mike’s signature (or my version of it, sorry about that Mike) and he left a happy camper! ******* I got an email from the MOECC’s Chris Medland Tuesday morning wanting clarify some things for readers. Here is it: There seems to have been some miscommunication related to our September 19, 2017 conversation. To ensure your readers are properly informed, here are a couple points of clarification related to the article and editorial run on the September 21, 2017: • The Ministry of the Environment and Climate Change started to receive odour complaints about the operation of the Grimsby Energy Inc. anaerobic digester after the Town of Grimsby Council meeting on September 18, 2017. • Please direct any environmental complaints about the digester operation, including odours, to the local Niagara District Office of the Ministry of the Environment and Climate Change at 905-7043900 during business hours and the Spills Action Center at 1-800-268-6060 after hours and weekends.” The bottom line here is the public needs clear, accurate information. Aldermen got calls which were passed on to hydro officials, another MOE employee got a call. I got calls and letters with confirmations from MOECC in Toronto, too. Now calls can right to Medland, even better. As for hydro’s offering in Niagara This Week last week, I defer to Mr. Rozender’s letter, except to say that load of horse pucky would be ideal input material for the bio.


GEI “thank you” flawed: reader Dear Editor, I read with interest the Grimsby Energy Inc. advertisement in another publication promoting the ‘Thank You’ story about the biodigester tour. There are a number of factually incorrect and misleading statements made – these need to be clarified: 1. It states: “The ecofriendly process reduces air pollution and organic waste odours”. This is not so. Copious amounts of CO2 gas is vented to our atmosphere from both the digestion process and from the burning methane exhaust from the engine along with hydrogen sulphide, ammonia, SO2s, NOXs, etc. These are the well noted polluting gases that contribute to global warming, contrary to Canada’s commitment to reduce these gases.

These exhausts will be taxed by Ontario’s ‘Cap and Trade’ taxes. 2. It states: “The amount of carbon dioxide produced when using biogas is equal to the amount needed for plants to grow. This in a way, balances the car-biogas is equal to the amount needed for plants to grow”. 3. This is not so. All plants need Oxygen and Nitrogen to grow – very little carbon dioxide is needed. The current amount of CO2 gas in our atmosphere (less than 1%) is quite sufficient and we burn/exhaust more than can be used. 4. Indeed as stated: “methane is one of the most potent” gases polluting our atmosphere”. It remains on the ground much longer than CO2 and is considered a toxic explosive, as proved at the recent Flamborough and Owen Sound

biodigester fires and explosions. There is always some methane leakage at all biodigesters, as we were cautioned about on our tour. 5. Four of our tour members left less than half way through the tour as they couldn’t take the stench. 6. While the larger issue of eco-friendly waste management needs to be dealt with, one obvious approach would be to encourage the natural aerobic composting of silage and organic wastes. This is the lower temperature process that we use in our backyard compost heaps, and at the Grimsby recycling dump where they produce large amounts of quality compost, freely available to Grimsby residents every Spring. Yes, it takes a year or more to produce in our climate but with low

Smart ways to save (for your children)

Long gone are the days when a student’s summer job could get them through the next school year at the post-secondary level. The Ontario government is changing the entire landscape of post-secondary tuition costs starting fall of 2017. But tuition costs are only part of the total costs. Instead, funding postsecondary costs for your children has become one of many parental obligations. Here are some strategies for parents to help with the costs: • Use Registered Retirement Education Funds: For every $2,500 contributed per year per child, the federal government will provide a matching 20% grant. It starts when your children are born. You will need a social insurance number for yourself and your child. You can invest in RESP’s at your local bank, with an investment adviser or even do it yourself through an online brokerage firm. You will qualify for the government grant of $500 only until the end of the year

they turn 17 and there is a government maximum of $7,200! Who can resist government money? The RESP withdrawals, excluding your principal contributions, are taxable in the hands of your children. • Having grandparents, aunt and uncles contribute: More and more, grandparents are contributing to RESP’s. With expensive houses and daycare, parents can’t always save enough. Grandparents to the rescue! Instead of buying a big gift for the grandkids on birthdays and holidays, how about a smaller gift and an RESP contribution? They’ll never even notice when they’re only 2 years old but they will when they’re 22! • Tax-free Savings Accounts: If you’re in the enviable position that you’ve maxed out the government grant to the RESP, consider using a TFSA. You have to be 18 years of age to have a TFSA so initially any additional savings will

be going into the parents’ TFSA’s. But starting at age 18, your children can open one of their own. Remember there is an annual contribution limit of $5,500 currently. • Having your children contribute to their own education: High-interest savings accounts (don’t you love the banking terminology?) work well as a way to encourage your children to save money from their part-time and summer jobs. They will have their own goals – cell phones, concerts and so on. But do insist that they save a portion for their postsecondary goal. It’s good for them to have some “skin in the game”. Let us help you understand how these specifically apply to your life. We sell advice, not products.
