anadian T ire… Opening in late

By Dave Scott I took a tour of the new Canadian Tire Store in Simcoe that will be opening in late April… I’ve got to tell you, that is one big store! For years we have had the smaller version in the mall, and it served its purpose… but what we are about to experience with the new store… will simple blow your mind! Within the store itself will be a Mark's Work Wearhouse. The automotive division will be able to service all sizes of vehicles and has been outfitted with all the latest technology. The newly formatted warehouse will be one of only three in Canada… the concept allowing for first rate customer service from the floor to the warehouse. Brian Dikdan, General Manger of the store… is in whirlwind mode and when I caught up with him last week… it was all I could do to keep up with the guy (and I thought

A pril

my days were busy). Brian was in constant demand, with his phone ringing, staff asking questions, contractors quizzing him… but he never quit smiling… I laughed as his lunch was basically handed to him as we were on the go… he sat it down, and left it, I doubt he even ate it. I asked about sleep… he laughed and said he was getting a few hours a night. His energy is boundless and his drive to make the new Canadian Tire Store the best for Norfolk is clear. As we walk through the new building, he points out the little things being done, like angled lights which is more customer friendly, washrooms for customers, a top notch staff area, and of course the store itself which will be able to carry all of the Canadian Tire product line… which brings me to Bill Corrigan, who is the Service

Manger… Bill too, cannot wait to get into the new shop… and explains that the service area will be able to handle a wider variety of vehicles that would not even fit through the doors at the old shop… on top of that, there will be a selection of over 2,000 tires in the shop inventory… all again to help the customer get quality service as quickly as they need it. Bill and Brian came to the area just a few years ago, having worked with Mary Taylor, the dealer, previously in Etobicoke… I asked how they liked Norfolk… without hesitation they said they, along with their families, love it here! We continued our tour as the many different contractors worked on a variety of areas within the new store… warehouse shelves clanging as they were being put together, floor machines humming, IT technicians preparing the computer room, drywall installers mudding, electricians powering up

a panel of wires to make it all work. Brian told me all the contractors have been great… problem solving, working late, and bringing the store together. The staff is also involved in this huge move, providing input and updating their training skills… all to make the experience of the new Canadian Tire Store a great one. From the inside looking out… this store is going to be great for Simcoe… as a kid I always remember Canadian Tire being the store we used when in town… I remember walking the aisles thinking it had everything… trying to find something to buy with my Canadian Tire Money… for a kid it was very cool… well, by the looks of things I will be experiencing that great feeling again (like a kid in a candy store)… like Brian said to me, Canadian Tire is building this state-of-the-art store to emphasize what is important to us – OUR CUSTOMERS!

Scotiabank has given adult learning in Haldimand Norfolk a $5,000 boost. â&#x20AC;¨Scotiabank (Simcoe and Caledonia branches) has long been a friend of literacy in our communities, and again this year the bank stepped up as a $5,000 major sponsor for the Haldimand Norfolk Literacy Councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Sweetheart Dinner & Auction held February 9. Lorraine Bergstrand, the literacy councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s executive director, is tremendously appreciative of the donation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This support is crucial to the continuance of our programs in both counties,â&#x20AC;? said Bergstrand. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have struggled to maintain our service in this time of economic challenges and layoffs. Our knowledge-based economy continues to grow, and many adults require training to qualify for these kinds of jobs.â&#x20AC;? The Haldimand Norfolk Literacy Council offers free service to adults aged 19 and over who need help with computer, reading, writing or math skills. The council is partially funded by the Ministry of Training Colleges & Universities and the United Way. Even with these funds, the council faces financial challenges maintaining services in both Haldimand and Norfolk. Jill Morison, literacy council board president, is also pleased with Scotiabankâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s commitment to adult literacy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This support is a clear indication of Scotiabankâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s understanding of the educational needs of our adults in both counties.

he New Port Dover KIA!

By Dave Scott At some point in our lives, we all find ourselves being mentored. We find someone to guide us, advise us, educate us… may it be a parent, teacher, coach, or in this case employers. In 1991 Kelly Fulsom was working in car sales in Hamilton when he met Pete MacMaster at a sales course. The two became fast friends and by 1992, Kelly was working in Simcoe at MacMaster Pontiac. Kelly settled in and began growing a customer base, which has now spans over 20 years in the local car industry. Under the guidance of Ken MacMaster, Kelly excelled in the dealership and by 1996 at the age of 29, had become the Sales Manger. In 1997 Ken sold the dealership to Rick McCall. Kelly and Rick formed a similar relationship… Kelly again enjoyed being surrounded by the experience and friendship of the new owner, Rick. The business continued to flourish. Rick and Ken (Ken bought a dealership in London) remain friends and they still continue to play golf together. We move ahead to last Thursday in Port Dover at the KIA dealership… Ken and Rick are chatting away… sharing a laugh, it is a very relaxed atmosphere… Kelly’s working away, looking up long enough to say hello. So with these three minds in one location, you know something is up!

Sure enough, the three do not disappoint as they announce that Rick has sold his KIA dealership to Kelly and Ken. Rick tells me that while playing golf (which Ken and himself do together whenever they can) last year, the two began to discuss the possibility of the sale of the KIA dealership… and with Kelly running the dealership already; it seemed like a great fit for him to be a partner as well. Rick smiles knowing the business will be well taken care of by Kelly and Ken. For Rick, the last few years have been a trying time… but as he says, “You persevere… do not give up the ship… stick to your goals… and things work out.” You can tell he “…loves the car business.” Rick says he is very pleased with the KIA dealership, that Port Dover is a great community, and that the situation is Win-Win for Kelly and Ken the community and himself. As for Ken, this is somewhat of a homecoming to be back in the area, and reconnect with Kelly. After the selling of his MacMaster dealership in 1997, it was off to London, where his current dealership is. When the opportunity arose to purchase the KIA dealership in Port Dover and help Kelly have his own business, Ken knew it was the right decision. “Kelly has a great future ahead of him… Kelly has been a part of this business for 20

years and has stayed loyal to this dealership the entire time… I am here to help him get off to a good start”. Ken realizes that with his network in the car industry, the service department at KIA will be able to service any make and model for the folks in Dover and surrounding area. Which in turn can help Port Dover KIA (new name) grow. Ken’s approach is that the KIA dealership is like five stores in one… they sell new cars, there is a business division, used car department, the service area and of course a parts desk… all of which can help the KIA customers in Norfolk. Ken has that it when he talks cars… it is in his blood… he simple says, “I love the car business.” Well that just leaves one person to talk to… Kelly… I pull up a chair and sit down… Kelly is working away on the computer… the last few months have been a whirlwind for him… but here he sits, a proud part owner of the KIA dealership… Oh, he knows a lot of work lies ahead but is ready for the challenge… he is excited for the opportunity. Kelly is happy to be in Dover and like his two mentors, fully admits his passion for the car industry. With the deal now done, Kelly is looking forward to getting back to the day-to-day business of growing the KIA dealership and its service department. He thinks for just a second, looking for the words to thank Rick and his

new partner Ken… smiles and says, “Today is a great day, as I’m realizing my dream with the support of two excellent past employers. When I think of successful business owners in the car business, Ken and Rick are certainly at the forefront for me. I am fortunate that now they are both instrumental in helping me take my career to the next step, and for that I am grateful, and very excited for the future! With the over 70 years experience between Ken and Rick, I have a lot of resources to draw from!” For the last few years I have followed Rick’s story pretty close… it intrigues me that the guy just does not give up… and watching him, Ken and Kelly… you can see that common theme in all three of these men… the drive, the business sense, the confidence to succeed and a passion for all things Cars! The next morning Port Dover KIA made their first sale. Off to a great start! Congrats to all three!

A Small, But Important Victory for Injured Ontarians

ost people hurt in car collisions know how frustrating it is when doctors suggest M treatment, but the insurer refuses to fund it. Pursuant to the Insurance Act, the injured person can dispute this denial in court, but only after they have tried, and

failed, to resolve the dispute through the Financial Services Commission of Ontario (FSCO). And so begins another battle….. In accordance with FSCO’s own Practice Code, a “mediation must be concluded within 60 days of the filing of an application for mediation.” Despite this requirement, claimants have been forced to wait for inordinate periods of time, sometimes more than a year, to have their case mediated. Pleas to the insurers and to FSCO to have the mediation “failed” on consent, so the case can proceed to court, have gone unanswered. And so, the accident benefit system that was to insure that injured individuals get timely access to treatment and much needed benefits, became yet another nightmare for injured people. Faced with growing concerns from plaintiffs’ counsel, FSCO recently announced that it had hired private mediation companies to help clear up the backlog. However, according to some plaintiffs’ lawyers (including myself), this was “too little, too late”. Bruce Kelly, a prominent plaintiff lawyer, took on the fight. On behalf of a number of his clients, he issued claims with the Ontario Superior Court of Justice, despite FSCO’s refusal to fail the mediations. The insurers brought a motion requesting that the claims by dismissed or stayed until a FSCO mediation was actually held. Mr. Justice Sloan dismissed the insurer’s motion and allowed the plaintiffs’ claims to proceed. In doing so, his Honour made some poignant observations: • FSCO’s Mediation Unit “is functioning without timelines and has been doing so for years” • The accident benefits available to injured Ontarians are for their benefit, and are “required in a timely fashion” • The insurance companies “are not in a vulnerable position” and there is no evidence “that the delay is of any real consequence to them” The insurer argued, amongst others, that injured people must simply wait for as long as it takes to get to mediation. Mr. Justice Sloan found this submission to be “preposterous”: “No one wants to go to court for any sum under $10,000 if mediation can resolve the issue, but accident victims should not have to remain in perpetual limbo.” A small victory for plaintiffs, if one looks at the entire accident benefit system – but one that can have very far reaching consequences for injured individuals!

Vegetable Garden Planning Time: Don’t forget the Companion Plants

n the next month or so, many home gardeners will begin sowing their seeds for many of their vegetable garden delicacies. A recent trend has been for gardeners to choose organic and heirloom varieties of seeds. Why not complete the triple play with the use of companion plants to reduce the need for pesticides? The use of companion plants is a biological approach that involves growing certain different types of plants near each other. By mixing a variety of plants together you confuse harmful insects. When you plant certain vegetables together or alongside flowers or herbs you can often camouflage the scent of a given plant so that its potential enemies can’t find it. For example, if you plant onions and carrots together, the carrot rust fly can no longer detect the scent of its “prey,” the carrot.

Herbs also make excellent companion plants. Instead of grouping them

all together in a corner, plant them in among your vegetables. Tarragon and marjoram give off a scent that repels most insects. Sage, rosemary and thyme repel insects that feed on the different plants of the cabbage family. Plant these herbs near your cabbages, cauliflower and Brussels sprouts. Coriander attracts parasitic wasps that are very useful in controlling all sorts of pests.

Why

not try flowers in the vegetable patch? Nothing will make your vegetables happier! Plant borders of alyssum and cosmos; they attract beneficial insects and repel certain harmful ones. Marigolds protect tomatoes from threadworms, and nasturtiums and petunias attract aphids. If you plant them near your tomatoes, the aphids will choose the flowers instead of your tomatoes.

Meet my plant friends! Plant friends are plants that can be grouped together

because they mutually help each other grow. Basil stimulates the growth of tomatoes and enhances the quality of the yield. Chamomile improves the growth and taste of cabbages and onions. It has been found that peas and beans enhance the growth of cucumbers and potatoes. Peas and beans also repel the Colorado potato beetle that commonly attacks potatoes and eggplant.

Intravenous Vitamin C

V

and

Cancer

itamin C has several actions that may offer protection against cancer and or other serious illness. It protects cells and their contents, including DNA, from damage. Vitamin C also helps the body neutralize environmental pollution and toxic chemicals, it enhances immune function, and it inhibits the formation of cancer-causing compounds such as nitrosamines, found in processed meats. Vitamin C preferentially kills cancer cells. It is not toxic to normal healthy cells and can be given at very high doses without harm to the patient. The use of vitamin C as a cytotoxic (cancer cell-killing) agent has been used for over 40 years. Intravenous therapy means to administer a substance or drug directly into a vein. Vitamin C taken in capsule form by mouth cannot achieve high enough blood levels to kill cancer cells, thus the use of intravenous therapy is necessary. Therapeutic dosages of 25 to 100 grams have been used regularly to eliminate cancer. It is impossible to consume that dose by mouth. Optimal absorption of capsule doses by mouth is 1000-2000mg per hour. Generally people will experience diarrhea at higher oral doses anywhere from 2000mg to 10,000 mg (2-10 grams), depending on their individual bowel tolerance and tissue saturation. When vitamin C is given through IV no diarrhea occurs. Blood levels of 350mg/dl must be maintained for therapeutic results to be achieved, and this effect lasts between 30 minutes to 6 hours, depending on the person. Oral routes cannot guarantee a constant serum level. Vitamin C given through IV lends itself to controlling this vital variable in order to ensure cytotoxic levels within the blood. None the less, intravenous vitamin C is a safe therapy. It does not have side effects such as hair loss, nausea, diarrhea, or fatigue. IV Vitamin C can be used safely along with chemotherapy and radiation therapy to treat cancer directly, decrease side effects from conventional treatments and increase treatment outcomes. Recent trials have demonstrated combined effectiveness of IV Vitamin C when used with Gemcitibine chemotherapy. Your Naturopathic Doctor at the Armstrong Clinic can answer more questions, and determine whether IV Vitamin C is the right therapy for you. *R eferences available upon request.

Radial Shockwave Therapy is a new treatment option for those option for those that are affected by conditions such as: • plantar fasciitis • bursitis • Achilles tendinopathy (commonly known as Achilles tendonitis) • tennis elbow • calcific tendonitis

How does it work?

pneumatic generator A physically delivers the shock wave to the skin, where

it is transformed to sound energy and delivered to the targeted area. The use of shock waves makes the treatment completely non-invasive and is well tolerated by patients. The effects of shock waves were discovered several decades ago after it was noticed swimmers in the Pacific Ocean were affected by the detonation of mines although they were well out of the blast radius. As the scientific community grew more understanding of the effects caused by shock waves, and medical technology advanced to a sufficient level, the medical profession was able to harness the power of shock waves for therapeutic uses. Radial Shockwave Therapy works by effectively breaking down tissue in a controlled manner to allow the targeted area to heal properly through the regeneration of blood vessels. It has shown to be successful in the treatment of chronic pain. Results can be felt after only one treatment with a large improvement becoming evident after a month’s worth of treatment, on average tissue regeneration takes place after three months. With Radial Shockwave Therapy, patients are in and out the door with treatments typically only taking between five to ten minutes.

Anyone who may think radial shockwave therapy may be right for them should contact... West Street Health Centre, Simcoe • 519-426-8330 Waterford Medical Centre • 519-443-6663 Dr. Marshall Thompson B.Sc.D.C. Chiropractor

Here is a warning and a confession: If unrestrained enthusiasm irks you, if the unabashed, promiscuous use of exclamation marks causes you to blush, break into a cold sweat, or (heaven forbid!) gives you hives which can only be soothed by a reassuring meander down Strunk and White lane -- put down the paper! Walk away! Do yourself a favour and stop reading, because this Broker little column may be 215 Chapman St. E. Port Dover your undoing.

H U B S E A R C H By Emily Daniel From Monday February 27 - Friday March 2, The Norfolk Musical Arts Festival is celebrating its 26 year. Over the course of these 5 days, a number of different competitions will take place. The festival does a magnificent job of making sure that everyone has a category and a class to enter. The wide range of categories includes: Vocal (solo and ensembles), piano, French as a first language, French as a second language, English speech arts, instruments, bands, guitar and strings. Within each category are numerous classes to enter making a class for everyone. Thursday March 1 at Holy Trinity, the bands category was held. Bands from Waterford District High school, Brantford Collegiate Institute, Holy Trinity, Paris District High School, and Delhi District High School all performed in the Secondary School Bands categories. There was also an Elementary School Band category where Jarvis Community Christian School, Elgin Avenue Public School, and St. Cecilia’s School performed. Also on Thursday, was the vocal ensemble category. Holy Trinity and Waterford District High School both performed in different classes. All the performances were a great opportunity for each band/ensemble to not only show off the skills they have learned, but also, to be able to listen to other bands/ensembles in the area. Being in the festival myself, it is also a good time to understand how an

adjudication works and to hear the input of someone else. Throughout the 5 days of the festival, numerous students across Norfolk County not only competed in ensembles, but as solo performers as well. If you know any musical students, ask if they performed! If not this year, there’s always next. Fifty students at Holy Trinity in grades 10,11 and 12 had the opportunity to sign up to attend National We Day in Montreal (February 29 - March 2.) We Day is an annual event-held across Canada in different locationscreated by Craig and Mark Keilburger (founders of Free the Children) in association with Free the Children. This year, they decided to have a year end event called National We Day, bringing 2000 students together from across Canada. Students were exposed to inspiration, empowerment, and interaction with the world. Tickets to We Day cannot be bought, they are earned by doing service in your local community, but also in the world wide community. “All the performers and speakers have incredible stories that every person can relate to.” Kayla Murray grade 11. I was able to get some text messages from those attending the trip to get some feedback. There are so many fantastic speakers at We Day events, all leaving the students with positive messages. “We day was amazing. It impacted me in a big way making me see that when we all come together, we can

make a massive change.” Peter Haywood grade 10. The overall response was a rush of inspiration especially after Rev. Jesse Jackson’s speech about making the world what we want it to be. “Jesse Jackson made a point of saying, ‘that you can’t do everything on your own... what he said was ‘it’s we and us, not me or you or I.’” Cyleste Hannah grade 11. One student said, “We Day was absolutely amazing! So Inspirational. It makes me definitely want to be the spark and help redefine possible. We Day is the movement of our time!” Isabel Santos grade 12. Another said, “We liked We Day because there were many people presenting who made you really understand the power of yourself.” Sarah Stosius and Jenn Chromczak both grade 10. Another great speaker was Spencer West. He was born with a muscular disorder and had to have all of his legs amputated by the time he was 5. He was told he would never sit up, walk or be a functioning member of society. He shares his story of acceptance and the power to achieve anything if you set your mind to it. He plans to climb Mount. Kilimanjaro within the next couple years. “It really made me feel like I can make a difference in the world if I just make an effort too.” Kendra VanCraenenbroeck in grade 12. “Spencer West especially made me realize that if

he can do great things there is no excuse for any one of us not to “Eva Schipper grade 12. Holy Trinity has been supporting Free the Children for 3 years. Holy Trinity got called out during the We Day event for raising enough money to build a school in Sierra Leone with the fundraisers we do at the school. The Vow of Silence is just one of the possible events that can take place. The overall reaction to National We Day was a great positivity that shows everyone that no one can stop you from changing the world. “You could definitely feel the good vibes in the theatre.

Emily Daniel Holy Trinity, Student Council I’m going to remember it forever!” Jessica Sitko grade 10. “We Day changed my life.” Ann-Majella McKelvie grade 11.
