EMC News – The Boston Marathon is a time of hope and triumph. Those ideals were rocked on April 15 as two bombs went off near the finish line at 2:50 p.m. with thousands of runners still on the course. Four local runners competed in the race: Terry Monette and Kevin Phillips from Almonte and Rodney Carriveau and James McGuire from Carleton Place. It has been reported that all runners from Canada escaped from the events uninjured but their memories from the experience are still fresh. Monette, a life-long Almonte resident, qualified for the marathon in Toronto in the fall of 2011, therefore he was unable to register for last year’s event and competed this year. He qualified with a time of 3:15 and finished the Boston Marathon with a net time of 3:25. He crossed the finish line at 1:31 p.m. Monette was grateful he was not around at the time of the explosions and has not really thought about the “what ifs” had he still been in the area. “I was on the train out of the city and someone on the train got a Facebook update

on their phone, that was the first I heard of it,” said Monette. “It was a bit surreal, you don’t expect things like that to happen and I feel badly for all of those who got hurt.” It was a different story for McGuire who completed the race with a time of 3:51 at 2:11 p.m. and was still in the finishing area when the bombs went off. McGuire had been looking forward to his first Boston Marathon after qualifying at Ottawa Race Weekend last spring with a time of 3:24. “For me personally (the time in Boston) was not my best,” said McGuire. “The day wasn’t about a personal best, the big thing is to qualify for Boston. I was just looking forward to enjoying the day.” After McGuire crossed the finish line he was “funneled” through with the other athletes to a staging area where they all receive their medal, a drink, snack and a blanket, if needed. He was then moved over to the family meeting area one street over. McGuire, his wife Leah and their three-and-a-half year-old son Jack had travelled to Boston on April 12 and McGuire was trying to find them after the race when everything changed.

Bake sale Equator is holding a second fundraiser for the trip, a Bake Off and Sale, on April 27 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. But this is not just any bake sale, it’s also a competition. To compete, pick up a Ÿ bag of coffee (for free) in the store cafÊ and use it to create something delicious. Then bring your creations to Equator by 10:45 a.m. on April 27 where they will be judged.

SAFETY TIPS Candles: If you use candles, make sure you keep them away from all combustible materials. Never leave them unattended and place them out of reach of young children. Candles should be placed in solid, secure candle holders and protected by a glass chimney.

SAFETY TIPS Heating and Cooking: If you are using a wood stove, be careful with the ashes. Always empty ashes into a covered metal container and store them outside away from combustibles.

Algonquin Park. Students learned about the biosphere through several workshops and nature hikes held throughout the day. In one workshop, called the All Natural Department Store Hike, guide Amy Whitehorn, of the Brockville Museum, led students along a nature trail and showed them practical uses for nature’s simple bounty. For instance, Whitehorn noted that First Nations people used pine needles to make a type of tea, said Henry. Gerrie Baker, owner of The Worm Factory, talked about worm composting and the kits she provides to area schools. Students deposit orange peels, apple cores and other food waste that worms turn into compost. Students also played the Eco-Clue Game – a board game in which students learned about issues such as the predator-prey relationship and the impact it has on the food chain. The workshop was led by an official with the Cataraqui Region Conservation Authority. Every student who attended the event was given a birdhouse to take home, said Henry. Sponsors for the day included: TD Friends of the Environment Foundation, Community Foundation of Kingston and Area, Leeds & Grenville Stewardship Council and Home Depot in Brockville.

UCDSB students attend Earth Day Summit EMC News – Eighty students from across eastern Ontario attended the 2013 Earth Day Summit on Friday, learning about everything from worm composting to ways to make tea from pine needles. The annual summit, organized by the Environmental Education Network of the Frontenac Arch Biosphere, brought together Grade 5 students from schools in the Limestone District School Board, Catholic District School Board of Eastern Ontario (CDSBEO), and Upper Canada District School Board (UCDSB) for a day of fun to celebrate the value of the great outdoors. The summit was held a few days before the official Earth Day – which occurred Monday – in part so organizers could provide classes with a tree students could plant at their schools to mark the official day. “We also wanted to provide an opportunity to allow students to connect with their natural environment because there is not a lot of opportunity throughout the school year to do so,� said Jack Henry, education director for the biosphere. “We hoped to educate students about the biosphere.� The Frontenac Arch Biosphere, of which the Thousand Islands region forms a major part, is an ecologically significant region both because of its rare species such as the Black Rat Snake and because it is a major migratory route for species between the Adirondack mountains and


EMC Events – It will be a night of java and jams for the Music for SchoolBOX Coffee House on May 2. The night of live music and great coffee will take place at Equator Coffee Roasters Inc. (451 Ottawa St.) in Almonte from 7 to 9 p.m. The event is a fundraiser for the 13 staff, family and local residents who are travelling to Nicaragua from May 9 to 18 to build a school with SchoolBOX. Admission to the event is only $5 or by donation and 100 per cent of the proceeds will support the team who is travelling south. Matt Della Foresta has been the production manager at Equator for the last two years and is excited for the trip and the fundraiser, which he thinks will be a relaxing but fun evening. “It will be a variety of acousticbased music performed by Equator staff and friends. The people who normally serve the coffee will be playing the music,� said Della Foresta. He thinks it will give people a chance to get to know the staff more. “If any of our customers come it’s a chance for them to get the inside scoop on the people who serve them everyday,� said Della Foresta. Since the registered charity, based in Almonte, was established in 2007 it has accomplished a great deal: 300 people have travelled to help build schools in Nicaragua. It has 14 staff members with two people working

in Canada and 12 employed in Nicaragua. SchoolBOX’s mission is to make education possible for children in Nicaragua and have provided 50,000 packages of educational supplies, including 200,000 plus notebooks to students and teachers in some of the poorest communities in Nicaragua. Della Foresta is passionate about the project. “I think for me personally, the fact that a child feels that someone came just for them, to bring them school supplies, that convinced me to go,� he said.

Big Brothers Big Sisters Game On mentoring program beneficial to male youth and “Can Game On run all day?” This speaks volumes to the impact that this program truly has on each of these kids that are involved. I would highly recommend volunteering with Big Brothers Big Sisters (BBBS), whether it’s with the Game On program or in any other aspect of the organization. It is both a rewarding and inspirational experience. You get to make and actually see a difference that you’re making in a child’s life. I’d like to thank the BBBS team for the opportunity they have given me to be part of making a difference in Lanark County.

EMC News – The following was submitted by Adam Gariepy, volunteer with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Lanark County. As a first time mentor with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Lanark County I was given a unique opportunity to be involved in our community and volunteer in a program called Game On! Eat Smart, Play Smart, Live Smart. Having run group sessions with different organizations in the past, I was still unsure of what to expect from a male only group. I was both excited and anxious. After the first session, I was overwhelmed with the level of engagement and excitement from the boys involved with the program. It was truly “guy time” for them and they were very excited about this, as was I. The importance of this guy time has proven beneficial within the program. We get to talk about being a guy, media, marketing, making healthy choices, stress and other important aspects of living a healthy active lifestyle. The boys have become more comfortable with both myself and Kyle Buchanan (my fellow Game On mentor) since week one of the program. They have opened up and have become increasingly more engaged. Some of the boys have said “We don’t want Game On to ever end!”

CDSBEO helps host Ontario Catholic Student Leadership Conference have been very well received, and the success of the students is a testament to the programs offered. In addition to the SHSM program in construction, the school is already making plans to implement a SHSM program in hospitality, beginning September 2013. Outdoor education enhances learning experiences The Ministry of Education is committed to reaching every student by providing a range of educational programs tailored to individual strengths, goals and interests of learners. Outdoor education, a valuable tool in achieving this goal, encourages students to engage in active and healthy learning experiences. Funding provided by the Ministry of Education is being used to support outdoor learning activities for students. CDSBEO has partnered with various community agencies, some of which include: Cooper Marsh Conservation Authority, Friends of the Summerstown Trails, Foley Mountain – Rideau Valley Conservation Authority, and MacSkimming Outdoor Education Centre, to deliver hands on opportunities for our students. Principal of Curriculum, Frances Derochie, presented an overview of outdoor education initiatives for students in both our elementary and secondary schools. “Outdoor education opportunities clearly link to the Ontario curriculum, including links to the Health and Physical Education – Active Living curriculum and the science curriculum,” she said. Students across the board participate in a myriad of outdoor education opportunities throughout the year. Activities such as downhill skiing at Mount Pakenham, skating on the Rideau Canal, snowshoeing at Summerstown Trails, and tubing and tobogganing at Les Cèdres, help learners to understand the importance of being physically active and provides them with an opportunity to demonstrate responsibility for their own safety and the safety of others. Some students also experience overnight excursions to Upper Canada Village, a threeday canoeing/camping trip to Algonquin Park, and a visit to the Cataraqui Region Conservation Authority. The outdoor education opportunity that drew the largest number of students has been the trip to La Petite Rouge Centre Touristique, located near Montebello, Québec, in the heart of the Laurentians. This year, approximately 300 students, from 12 schools, participated in the French language camp. Students kept active with cross country skiing, broom-ball, tubing, skating, snowshoeing, firefly tag, and a treasure hunt while perfecting their oral French communication skills. Offering these experiences to learners promotes an appreciation of, and concern for, the environment. Effective outdoor education also develops students’ problem solving skills, while offering hands on learning opportunities. This curriculum incorporates scientific inquiry, higher order thinking, and cooperative learning, which provides an enriching experience for CDSBEO students.

Canadian Human Rights Commission launches online complaint tool EMC News – Starting now, people who believe they have suffered discrimination will have easy online access to a tool to determine if they have grounds for a complaint under the Canadian Human Rights Act. The Canadian Human Rights Commission has launched an online complaint assessment tool, an interactive, self-service questionnaire that helps people determine if a discrimination complaint is valid and should be formally filed. According to its annual report for 2012, last year the Canadian Human Rights Commission received more than 19,000 inquiries and over 1,500 complaints.

The complaint assessment tool is just one of the new features of the commission’s redesigned website, launched earlier this month. The redesign, grounded in a “people first” philosophy, improves accessibility and usability and delivers critical information to all the commission’s audiences with the fewest possible clicks. The web redesign reflects a greater emphasis across government on electronic delivery of information. With its complaint assessment tool, new e-learning projects and tools for employers, and the Human Rights Maturity Model

index-eng.aspx, which provides employers the opportunity to self-evaluate workplace human rights performance online, the commission is tailoring the delivery of its services to the needs of the public. Newly launched social media initiatives complement this effort. The commission is among the first departments and agencies in the federal government to unveil websites that conform to new treasury board standards for usability and accessibility.

The treatment and prevention of diabetes is constantly evolving. At the Canadian Centre for Research on Diabetes, we believe that participating in clinical research is an essential way to help advancements in effective diabetes care. We are currently participating in a variety of clinical research trials for which we are seeking volunteers. In particular, we are looking for individuals who: Have Type 2 Diabetes and are over the age of 50 Are taking oral anti-diabetic medications or insulin Have had a heart attack or stroke Have high blood pressure or high cholesterol Are potentially looking to lose weight


Becoming familiar with available school and program choices before making a final decision can help ensure the best choice is made to meet the student’s individual needs, thus promoting a smooth transition and positive experience in high school. At St. Matthew Catholic Secondary School, the STAR program (Student Transition, Advising & Registration Program) has been established to help students, and their parents/ guardians, with this decision. The program introduces grade 7 and 8 students to the secondary school environment through a number of phases. For the first phase of the STAR program, St. Matthew CSS staff visit grade 7 and 8 students at CDSBEO feeder schools. A 40-minute presentation is given, which focuses on communicating the key considerations that will affect a student’s secondary school pathway. A school video is shown, and a description of the St. Matthew CSS program is highlighted, including details on the extensive use of technology, individual support through smaller class sizes, and the school focus on engagement through hands-on activities, educational goals, and career exploration. Those who are interested in the St. Matthew program will then participate in an activity day, which consists of spending a day at St. Matthew CSS to become familiar with the staff, facility, and the programs offered. During this day, students participate in handson workshops in construction, hospitality, and science. In addition, snacks and lunch are prepared by the hospitality program, and questions are addressed in a brief session at the end of the day. Parents/guardians are also welcome to participate. Next, St. Matthew CSS has an open house, where information presented at the elementary schools is shared with parents, along with feedback from the activity day. There is an opportunity to ask questions and tour the school. Once the decision has been made to attend St. Matthew CSS, a meeting is held with the Student Success team, parents/guardians, and student, to learn more about the student, including his/her strengths, areas of need, and interests. This facilitates an appropriate course selection, and ensures a smooth transition into high school. There are many opportunities to interact with students and staff before the first day of grade 9, which may include an additional visit to the school, participation in a sporting challenge (i.e. dodge ball), with the elementary school and students at St. Matthew, and the new student barbecue held on the September PD Day. St. Matthew CSS currently offers a Specialist High Skills Major program in construction. Each year, the SHSM construction program builds a camper cabin for the St. Lawrence Parks Commission. Very recently, the students from St. Matthew CSS won a silver medal in the Integrated Construction category, at the annual Eastern Skills Competition at St. Lawrence College. Principal Renée Rozon, and STAR program at St. Matthew CSS vice-principal Walter MacDonald, credit the Transitioning from elementary school to win to the skills this group has learned in the secondary school can be both an exciting and SHSM construction program.

EMC News – The following are highlights from the April 16 board meeting of the Catholic District School Board of Eastern Ontario (CDSBEO) held at the board office in Kemptville. The CDSBEO had the privilege of hosting, in partnership with the Ottawa Catholic School Board (OCSB), the second Ontario Catholic Student Leadership Conference. The conference brought together some 350 Catholic students and their supervisors, from across the province. The group of delegates were involved in many enriching discussions, and had the opportunity to hear several engaging keynote speakers, all of which centred on the Catholic Graduate Expectations (CGEs). Catholic student trustee Sean Fry provided the board with an overview of the conference. Held at the Fairmont Chateau Laurier in Ottawa, from April 11 to 13, the conference was facilitated by a group of student leaders from the two host boards, who assisted with various roles throughout the event. Activities and speakers were carried by student trustee Fry, along with Laura D’Amico and Andrew DiCapua (Catholic student trustees from OCSB), who also emceed the duration of the conference. The opening ceremonies began with an introduction of all attending boards, with greetings from the Directors of Education, Wm. J. Gartland (CDSBEO) and Julian Hanlon (OCSB), and the board chairs, Brent Laton (CDSBEO), and Mark Mullan (OCSB). Bishop Douglas Crosby of the Diocese of Hamilton, gave an inspiring keynote address to the delegates, which focused on the three keys to effective leadership: gratitude, affirmation, and sacrifice. Two other keynote speakers also inspired the students with motivating messages. Jason Collard, founder of A Day of Info for a Lifetime of Action, encouraged students to become strong leaders, and to dream of a better world, and act on those dreams. Collard urged delegates to ignore cynicism, and focus on the positive, and what may come from action. Sheri Richer-Camillone, chaplaincy leader at St. Michael Catholic High School in Kemptville, shared her story of faith, hope and gratitude, which she found while spending time in a Ugandan orphanage. Richer-Camillone inspired students through the genuine connections she made with the impoverished women in a nearby village, and how they taught her about true hope, and gratitude. Over the three-day event, students were also engaged in liturgical celebrations, student witness talks, and discussion groups which focused on the CGEs. Delegates had an opportunity to explore the National Capital Region and participate in many spirit-building activities including icebreakers, a gala dinner, and an evening dance. The conference ended with a celebration of the Eucharist held at Notre Dame Cathedral Basilica, presided by Archbishop Terrence Prendergast.

Remember to thank a volunteer this week DEAR EDITOR: Odds are, if you are reading this, you volunteer. April 21 to 27 is National Volunteer Week – a time to acknowledge the integral contribution volunteers make to our collective wellbeing. People across our region drive strangers to medical appointments, skimp on family time to serve on boards, pack food hampers or raise funds. They quietly and cheerfully deliver a myriad of services that boost our quality of life. I personally wish to recognize my fellow volunteers at the Ontario Trillium Foundation Grant Review Team. Together, they review and analyze dozens of grant applications. In the last year they recommended that OTF invest $4.06 million in 67 organizations across the catchment of Quinte, Kingston and Rideau. The resulting financial investment that OTF makes locally is, in my

view, more than matched by the hard work, time and expertise put in by the unpaid volunteers who choose to work with these groups. Last year, in the Quinte, Kingston and Rideau area alone, some 3,423 volunteers contributed more than 99,345 hours of their time to support organizations that received OTF funding. If we translate their efforts into dollar value, it comes to $1,688,865 of giving! All of us are touched and enriched by volunteers’ efforts. So if you volunteer, take a bow. If you benefited from a volunteer’s efforts this week, consider pausing to make sure they know that you know what a difference they are making.

COMMENTARY Giving all they’ve got EMC Editorial – What would we do without volunteers? Simply put, the landscape of our communities across Lanark County wouldn’t be as vibrant or healthy. Many hospitals wouldn’t be undergoing redevelopments or adding programs if it weren’t for them; funds wouldn’t be raised for charities; and our youth wouldn’t be enriched through organizations such as Big Brothers Big Sisters of Lanark County. This week is National Volunteer Week (April 21 to 27), which is designed to pay tribute to the more than 31.3 million volunteers across the country who selflessly give their time helping to make their communities better. In today’s society, it’s not that easy to do. Between work, family and extracurricular activities, it’s a wonder that anyone has additional time to devote to volunteering. However you still see people willing to give their valuable free time, which quite often keeps them away from spending time with their family. Individuals don’t volunteer to receive recognition and they don’t seek it out. In fact, many tend to shy away from the spotlight, instead preferring to focus on the cause they are aiding. But that doesn’t mean that we should stop saluting or thanking them. A testament to the impact of volunteers, National Volunteer Week is in its 71st year, dedicated to spreading the word of the good initiatives people in communities are spearheading. Whether it’s sitting on a local board, becoming a member of an action group, or simply helping to coach your son or daughter’s soccer team, volunteers can be found everywhere you look. Next time you see someone selling flowers for a charity or donating their time to help beautify their town, thank them for making your community a better place to live. Or think about posting a thank you message on the National Volunteer Week thank you wall (

Marguirite’s anxiousness to do chores lands her in the outhouse EMC News - “There’s goin’ to be heck to pay!” Emerson said at recess that day when the warm spring weather had finally arrived, and the entire school was out in the schoolyard. Even Miss Crosby. She was sitting on the stoop working on her daybook and enjoying the warm sunny day. Emerson went on to explain. “Miss Crosby told Two Mile Herman it was his turn to clean off the black boards after school. And when I went back in the school to get the ball glove out of the cloak room, there was Marguirite wiping the blackboards like a maniac. The chalk dust was flying everywhere. I tell you Miss Crosby won’t be happy, and Two Mile Herman will just about kill Marguirite.” Back then it was a privilege to be asked to do any of the cleaning necessary to keep the school as neat and tidy as possible. Miss Crosby had to be careful not to give the privilege to the same person too often, or the rest of us would be mad! Whatever job we were given, we did it happily, and even a bit smugly. It was

an honour, and one not to be taken lightly. There was no such thing as a school caretaker back then. We scrubbed the floors once a month, took ashes out of the stove, washed the windows, and one of us, for a whole week, had the job of emptying the big green tin waste basket at the end of each day. One of the jobs nobody wanted was one assigned on the last school day of every month. Because it was a hateful and detested job, it always went to a boy from Senior Fourth. He would carry the pail of lime out of the cupboard at the back of the school, and go to the outhouse and shovel in a heaping dose. Inside the outhouse there was a tin can of lime which we were supposed to use when we went to the bathroom for serious business. But I was pretty sure back then that very few pupils bothered. And every morning, just after singing God Save the King, Miss Crosby would announce the name of the person who would be given the privilege of cleaning off the Vice President & Regional Publisher Mike Mount 613-283-3182, ext. 104

blackboards, and that day, the job fell to Two Mile Herman. Thinking she was going to get on the good side of Miss Crosby, bad Marguirite had sneaked back into the school during the afternoon recess, and stole the job away from Two Mile Herman! Right out from under his nose. Well, when Miss Crosby rang the bell and we marched back in (all in order of course... the youngest of us at the front of the line, the oldest ones bringing up the rear), there was Marguirite, beaming ear-to-ear with the blackboards rubbed clear. What she hadn’t done, which was always part of the job, was take the brushes outside and pound them together to get rid of the chalk dust.

She left them sitting on the ledge of the blackboard. To say Two Mile Herman was roary-eyed mad was an understatement. “That was my job, you dirty little Protestant,” he roared. (Two Mile Herman was Catholic). Sixteen pairs of eyes darted (there were 18 of us at the Northcote School) from Miss Crosby who wouldn’t tolerate for a second an outburst like she just heard from Two Mile, then to Marguirite and then to Herman. I was sure Herman would get a taste of the leather strap which hung on a cup hook on the side of the teacher’s desk. And bad Marguirite sitting so smug you just wanted to slap her, was beaming. Well, it didn’t take the rest of the day for Miss Crosby to settle the issue. She didn’t say a word to Two Mile Herman... not a single word! Her face was turning beet red, and she marched to the front of the room, took the brushes off the ledges... the ledge ran the full length of the blackboard at the front of the school and all down the south side...

so there were six brushes in all.. and marched right down to Marguirite’s desk. “Young lady, if you are so anxious to work, you can take these outside and get rid of the chalk dust. And when you are finished, you can go to the cloak room and get the pail of lime and go to the outhouse and you know what has to be done.” Her voice had risen to a high pitch, and she practically threw the brushes at Marguirite. Marguirite was livid. Lime in the outhouse! That was a boy’s job! But there was no negotiating with a teacher back in those days. Her command was the law! It took a few minutes for the rest of the school to settle down, but we could hear Marguirite slapping the brushes together outside. And we could also hear her crying and I was pretty sure I could hear her stamping her feet, which she was prone to doing when upset. The last we heard was the scraping of the lime pail going down the cement steps on its way to the outhouse! • Advertising rates and terms and conditions are according to the rate card in effect at time advertising published. • The advertiser agrees that the publisher shall not be liable for damages arising out of errors in advertisements beyond the amount charged for the space actually occupied by that portion of the advertisement in which the error occurred, whether such error is due to negligence of its servants or otherwise... and there shall be no liability for non-insertion of any advertisement beyond the amount charged for such advertisement. • The advertiser agrees that the copyright of all advertisements prepared by the Publisher be vested in the Publisher and that those advertisements cannot be reproduced without the permission of the Publisher. • The Publisher reserves the right to edit, revise or reject any advertisement.

Attack ads on Trudeau ineffective, says reader the PM resumes at the time each assumed party leadership, shows that Harper had no experience outside of politics except that of mail room clerk and the head of a group that pressed for rules to allow big money to have more influence in politics. By comparison, Trudeau had experience as a teacher and also in advocacy and volunteering. For anyone who thinks that they can pooh-pooh experience teaching, I can say that they have never stood up in front of a class of high school students for the purpose of passing knowledge on to them. Students are probably the toughest and most skeptical audience and it requires not only hard work and strong organizational skills but expert subject matter knowledge and inspirational approaches to successfully teach them. I know. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been there. Teachers also are for the most part, some of the most highly educated professionals in our society. Now, for the part that really bothers me â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Harperâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s attack on Trudeau for his response to the Boston Marathon bombings. Harperâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s claim that Trudeau, in his CBC interview with Peter Mansbridge, attempted â&#x20AC;&#x153;to rationalize or make excusesâ&#x20AC;? for whoever was responsible for the bombings was obviously engineered to only serve Conservative political interests rather than

the interests of public safety. Harper dismissed the need to look for â&#x20AC;&#x153;root causesâ&#x20AC;? (i.e. they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t matter) and wants to focus only on finding and punishing the perps after they have committed an act of terrorism. This may play well to the Conservative base, but will make us less safe. In fact, since the Boston attack, expert after expert on public safety and counter terrorism has stated, using a variety of language, the idea that we need to find and to address root causes. Even United States President Barack Obama has stated this. Terrorism is changing. It is growing here at home and it is no longer sufficient just to punish it after the fact. In order to prevent it, we need to identify potential terrorists before they can put their plans into action and in order to do that we need to know what makes them tick (i.e. root causes). And itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not like Trudeau didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t condemn the bombings. He did. He also stated that if he was Prime Minister, security measures would be heightened to protect Canadians. I would suggest to anyone who hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t, that they watch the full Mansbridge One-on-One interview with Trudeau and they will see that that he is much more far-seeing on this subject than the PM.

DEAR EDITOR: As expected, the Tories have come out full bore with their attack against the new leader of the federal Liberal Party. So far, I would say that the score is Trudeau 2, Tories 0. The first attack ad was laughable and a flop when it became known that the video part of it was taken at a charity fundraiser. Somehow, the Tories seemed to think that Canadians would buy into the concept that Trudeau demonstrated poor judgement by taking off his shirt for charity. Instead, what Canadians see is Trudeau doing his bit for a good cause and the result is that the Tories reinforce their image as being mean spirited. I would say as well that their message got lost in the campy visuals. As an aside, I note that no one seems to be remembering that former Conservative Prime Minister (PM) Kim Campbell once posed supposedly nude but with only bare shoulders showing for a charity calendar. It was all done in good taste but the risquĂŠ concept was there. I remember that if anyone expressed shock or questioned her judgement they were told either to chill or get a life. Double standard here? A Conservative can do it but not anyone else, especially not a Liberal? As for the Toriesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; claim that Trudeau lacks experience, a comparison done by the CBC of

Kemptville Salvation Army volunteers share memories on 125th anniversary By MAUREEN McCLEERY and MARG WALES

EMC News – I have helped The Salvation Army in so many ways over the years. I used to work the Christmas bizarre and sort. I helped with the Home League. I was never crafty or whatever but I enjoyed the company and would help glue things. I remember helping Irene with the Christmas baskets. She was the Captain here, she was a delightful Scottish girl. Through that, Irene was so upset. She would bring the baskets and there were three or four baskets already at their house. I don’t know how long it took but there was a list, all the groups got together and coordinated their Christmas baskets. They opened up a thrift store across from the old high school. Marg Wales and I worked two days a week. We would sort the donations and we would take the clothes off the racks if they were on too long. We would change them over. We had a great time. There was such great camaraderie. We would eat all the time. Those were good days on Main St. We had lots of fun. All we did was eat and laugh…and work! We did lots of work. The joy was in helping and listening, having a laugh and getting them out of the doldrums. Then they moved the store to Clothier St. because it got too big. The Kinsmen came in and built all the bins. It was readily filled after that. It was a community effort. It was

all community driven when we moved from Main St. to Clothier St. When we moved the thrift store here (to its current location on Oxford St. West), there was a big tree in the yard. I called the town after hours and they came and took it down. Terry, my husband, and I went into Ottawa, we went to Home Depot with a letter from Stephanie Gilmer and they gave us all the large plants. And we went to neighbours and they gave us all the flowers. I worked on the cash, there were no prices or anything. There was a sale that came to $8. I pressed a button and it went to $800. I pressed another button and it went to


EMC News – The Salvation Army has always been there for us supporting us in all kinds of ways. Since there are so many ways The Salvation Army has helped me it’s very hard for me to pick just one. As a child, my mother took me to The Salvation Army for their Sunday School services where they taught me about the Lord, his teachings and all the love He has for me. It also gave me a chance to meet and interact with other children in the community. When I grew into a high school student the support didn’t stop. I found myself short quite a few hours for community service to graduate and yet The Salvation Army was there. They were glad to offer me my missing hours and more if I would like. Then a few years after I graduated I moved back to Kemptville. I got pregnant and found myself jobless, living on my boyfriend’s income with a new baby. The Salvation Army was there with the food bank and support. The support they gave was more than just verbal support. They took my son and I camping, made us feel loved and accepted, which personally I had never really felt from this town before. They made me feel like I was a part of something special while I volunteered to help out at the Dandelion Festival, speaking to the public while giving handouts and letting people know about the Teen MOPS group that

$1,600! I called Bianca (thrift store manager) and said, “I’m out of here!” I enjoyed the people coming in and talking with people. I liked the people I volunteered with and everybody got along so well. I’m not a people person but I like to help out where I can. I like to give anybody a chance, that’s all they need, is a chance. The main thrust of why I volunteer with the Salvation Army is because of my godfather. He was down and out in Montreal and they helped him a lot. They looked after him. He was such a talented man, and musician and an artist but the almighty booze…you know…

The Salvation Army sponsors which I attended with an amazing group of girls. Teen MOPS had special activities for us to help with parenting tips, getting us in touch with other services in our community, like play groups at the Early Years Centre, the Health Unit and even some special events at the Municipal Centre. They taught us how to budget our money, allowed guest speakers to share their tough and not so tough stories as mothers themselves. They became amazing, real role models and allowed us to see and feel what a family is like so we could mimic their actions but in our own ways. I also really benefitted from the Mother’s Day Brunch. I had tons of fun sitting and eating with my mother and mother-in-law. It gave us a chance to talk without worrying who was doing dishes after. They had prizes and live music with dancing and great food. I also had the opportunity to help out with the Friendship Lunch with friends at the Leslie Hall. I was nice to see so many people from the community come sit and talk and enjoy a beautiful turkey dinner with all the fixings. So, I guess all and all I am trying to say not only thank you for being a part of our community but for all the help, love and support that The Salvation Army has given me and everyone else. I appreciate it and will always remember the dedication that they have shown. Kemptville is a better place because of you.

It will be a salute to one great Canadian and indeed, of all things Canadian: our land, our music, our communities and most importantly, our people. In other words, it’s a celebration of us. For, of the many things Stompin’ Tom gave us the greatest may just be this: he reminded us that the best part of Canada was Canadians themselves.

There’s bound to be a number of shopkeepers and others wearing black cowboy hats, a busker or two and who knows what else to be seen around town on this weekend. It’s up to each individual to get creative in their own unique way. Who

knows what will happen? This weekend is being presented by the Carleton Place In Concert “Up Close and Personal” committee. This is the group that has been responsible for presenting the likes of; Murray McLauchlan, Valdy, Garnet Rogers, Lynn Miles, Keith Glass and so on, in intimate concerts held in the town within the past 18 months.

EMC Entertainment – In honor of both the spirit and vision of the late Stompin’ Tom Connors, the town of Carleton Place will host a unique musical and cultural celebration on the weekend of Saturday, May 11 and Sunday, May 12. And what better location than the community where Connors wrote his first big hit, the legendary Ottawa Valley tune, ‘Big Joe Mufferaw’ during his first visit there in 1967. Therefore an event that has been dubbed, ‘A Salute to Stompin’ Tom and the Songs of Canada,’ will feature two concerts, displays and other goings on in and around the downtown. This event is not meant to be a tribute to the late Tom Connors but rather a celebration and continua-

He would allow me to drive the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Ponchoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; every once in a while even though in 1960, I was only 14-15 years old.

Prince Edward County wineries well worth a visit a Friday evening wine tasting. Because we travel together regularly Wendy wondered if we would be interested. The LeBlanc’s, who are very familiar with PEC, have wanted to take us

on a wine tour there for some time. warm temperatures and gentle breezes We immediately said “yes.” It was off Lake Ontario. Perhaps even a chance around Christmas when Wendy booked to sit on an outdoor patio enjoying lunch our spring getaway. At the time we had See COLUMN page 23 visions of a sunny April weekend with


Durham region. Canadian wine has been produced, with varying degrees of success, for more than 200 years. In 1988 three events occurred which had a major positive impact on the industry. Arguably the most important was Free Trade with the United States. The same year the Vintners Quality Alliance (VQA) standard was established. If you buy Canadian wines you will be familiar with the acronym VQA which carries with it a promise of quality product. Also in 1988 a major grape vine replacement and upgrading program swept the Canadian wine industry. That initiative has had a major positive influence on the viability of the industry in Canada. To put things in perspective however, Canada remains but a blip on the world wine map. In 2002 this country produced some 76 million litres of wine. Sounds like a lot doesn’t it? That accounted for only 0.3 per cent of world production. You are probably wondering why I have chosen this week to regale you with details about the wine industry in Prince Edward County, Ontario and Canada?

EMC Lifestyle – Move over Niagara Region, there’s a new kid on the wine producing block in Ontario! In truth vineyards are not new to Prince Edward County. The first wine grapes were planted along the north shore of Lake Ontario in the mid 19th century. The region briefly fell under the North American wine spotlight in 1876 when a gentleman named Dorland Nixon was awarded a gold medal for his wine at the Philadelphia Exposition, the first World’s Fair ever held in the United States. Nixon’s early success aside it is fair to say Prince Edward County (PEC) is “Ontario’s newest wine producing region.” The modern era in PEC began in the 1980s when an experimental vineyard was planted using Vitis vinifera grapes, a common variety in places such as the Mediterranean, central Europe and southwestern Asia. The maritime climate and limestone base makes the county ideal for grape growing. It wasn’t until 1993 that the first vineyard for commercial purposes was established. That operation grew into Waupoos Estates Winery near Picton which opened to the public in 2001. Waupoos received the second winery licence in the county, following the nearby County Cider Company in North Marysburgh in 1996. Since the dawn of the new millennium wineries and vineyards have been opening at an incredible pace in PEC. On the 2012 Wine Tour Map there were 26 wineries listed, along with six vineyards that grow grapes but are not open to the public. For the record the Okanagan Valley of British Columbia and the Niagara Peninsula in southern Ontario are the leading wine producing areas in Canada. In this province Niagara features nearly 80 wineries. There are more than a dozen in what is officially called the Lake Erie North Shore and Pelee Island wine region and 10 more in the Toronto-North

and sampling VQA wine at one of the many Picton area establishments. The reality was quite different. In fact if we had traveled there last December it is possible the weather would have been more favorable. On April 12 we left Carleton Place in the teeth of a late winter gale. There was a vicious mixture of freezing rain, ice pellets and snow in the air. As Frank guided the car southward we had already pledged to turn around and go home, abandoning our pre-paid expedition, if the roads proved too hazardous to navigate. The driving was sloppy early in the drive. Near Seeley’s Bay on Highway 15 the icy stuff turned to straight rain.

It was clear sailing for us after that. Kingston, Napanee and communities along the shore of Lake Ontario had received a substantial amount of freezing rain. There were branches down everywhere as well as some large trees which had clearly stood for 100 years or more prior to this event. The electrical grid had also taken a beating. Fortunately we missed the worst of it. By the time we reached our destination the mercury was touching 5C and the ice was rapidly disappearing. Not the nicest weekend of the year for a wine tour! But it was perfect indoors of course and our PEC adventure turned out to be a major success. We visited five wineries and an apple cider operation in two days. We enjoyed learning about the county’s burgeoning

wine industry. There was also an excellent Friday night dinner in the restaurant of our B&B. One of the finest meals we have experienced in a long time. Despite rain showers and unseasonably cold temperatures Frank and Wendy took Kathy and I on a very enjoyable driving tour of PEC. We enjoyed breathtaking views of the Bay of Quinte and Lake Ontario. There was also a brief ride on the Glenora Ferry which connects the sprawling peninsula to the mainland. A visit to the incredible Lake on the Mountain, above Picton, is a must for any visitor. Picton, population 4,000, appears to be thriving along with the wine industry. We were very impressed by the main street and the many state-

ly homes. Kathy and I had not been to Picton for many years and we enjoyed it immensely. Certainly for any wine lover PEC is well worth a visit. We found the quality of the wine is generally very good. Some falls into the “excellent” category. Because the region is so new it can only get better! The majority of the wineries – about half of them – are located close to the village of Wellington. Previously I only knew the community because of its junior hockey team, Wellington Dukes of the Ontario Junior Hockey League (Tier 1 Junior A). There is much more to Wellington with its boutiques, galleries, restaurants and pubs. In fact the county features many points of interest. Included is an excellent cheese factory,

Black River Cheese at Milford. We have been urged to visit the area by family and friends who have been there many times in recent years. Thanks to the LeBlanc’s we can now say we have been there. And we will definitely go back. For residents of our region PEC and its interesting and growing wine industry is an easy drive. Obviously I recommend our own area first and foremost. But if you’re looking for a picturesque and interesting place to visit, within easy reach, Prince Edward County is an excellent option and not just for the wine!

Home First, a person-centred philosophy, better for patients and system EMC News – A partnership between the Local Health Integration Network (LHIN), Community Care Access Centre (CCAC), hospitals and Community Support Services (CSS) is having a positive effect on patients and the health system will soon be offered in all hospitals across the southeast. Home First is a person-centred philosophy. It focuses on discharging patients from hospital sooner and improving the safety and quality of care in the patient’s home, when home provides a more ideal environment than hospital for patients who in the past may have remained in hospital to await a longterm care home. Under the Home First approach even patients with complex needs are often able to be discharged, once their need for hospital-based care has been met. Home First results in reductions in Alternate Level of Care (ALC) length of stay in hospitals, and reduced demand for long-term care beds. Since adopting Home First, ALC rates have been reduced by nine per cent in the South East LHIN. “The aim is to reduce the creation of ALC patients in acute care hospital beds by identifying those patients at risk of becoming ALC and encouraging earlier involvement of the Community Care Access Centre and Community Support Services through collaboration between the CCAC and hospital,” said Laurie French, senior manager of access and ALC/ER with the South East CCAC. Success is dependent on staff relationships within the CCAC, hospitals, Community Support Services, and other services in the community. Home First works because of the strength of these partnerships and puts the services around the person and their individual needs. A successful transition home may only require the coordination of help from community support services for things like meals and transportation assistance or respite care to provide a break for a caregiver. Other people require additional personal support or other services provided by the CCAC to be able to remain safely in their own home. “Going home is what our clients want most. The Home First initiative is a fantastic way for the hospital, CCAC, and CSS agencies to work together in the best interests of the people we support. The CSS agencies work in partnership with the family to provide the much-needed practical help with meals and home upkeep that enables people to keep living at home longer,” said Debbie MacDonald Moynes, execu-

tive director of Prince Edward Community Care for Seniors, the regional management agency for the CSS sector involvement in the transition from hospital to home programs. Designations of patients as ALC have been reduced by 50 per cent in most hospitals where the Home First philosophy has been implemented. It takes time to modify the culture in a hospital when Home First is introduced as a new way of managing discharge plans.

“Since the introduction of Home First in Perth/Smiths Falls, we have seen a significant decrease in the number of patients awaiting placement in long term care,” said Linda Bisonette, chief executive officer of the Perth & Smiths Falls District Hospital. “We believe the strengthened relationship between the hospital, the CCAC and patients as well as their families, is leading to a much higher level of quality care and satisfaction for our residents.”

Not only are there benefits to the individuals who go home, this approach also provides significant benefits to the health system. “The hospital is the right place to be when you are sick but home is a better place to be when you are no longer sick,” said Sabrina Martin, Home First lead with the South East LHIN. “There are risks to a patient remaining in the hospital when they don’t need to be there. These risks include contracting infectious disease, physical/mental de-

terioration and social isolation. It is estimated that each day that ALC patients are supported at home by CCACs and Community Support Services, as opposed to in hospitals, saves the health care system $384 per patient per day.” After Home First is implemented in Providence Care St. Mary’s site hospital in Kingston and Lennox & Addington County General Hospital in Napanee this spring, it will have been adopted by all hospitals across the South East LHIN.

IN MEMORIAM CARLIE FENTON April 28 2007 The moment that you died, Our hearts split in two, The one side filled with memories, The other died with you. We often lay awake at night, When the world is fast asleep, And take a walk down memory lane, With tears upon our cheeks. Remembering you is easy, We do it everyday, But missing you is a heartache, That never goes away. We hold you tightly within our hearts, and there you will remain, Life has gone on without you, But it never will be the same.

Just inside the main entrance of the C.R. Gamble Funeral Home is a book of remembrance. Each day we turn a page in the book. The names of those we have served are inscribed on that date along with the year in which they passed away. It is our way of honouring and remembering a life that was lived. It is

also our way of saying “thank you” to the many families who have shown confidence in us since we came to Almonte in 1973. Some families are unable to visit this book on the anniversary of the death of those they love. For this reason we are proud to publish these names weekly as our way of saying…“We Remember”.

No one knows the bitter pains, I have suffered, since I lost you. Life has never been the same. In my heart your memory lingers. Sweetly, tender, fond and true. There is not a day dear Carlie. That we are not thinking of you. Sadly missed and loved by Gran, HaileyDawn, Richard, Kyle, Nick.


Locked in our hearts you will always be Loved and remembered eternally Those special years will not return When we were all together But with the love within our hearts You will walk with us forever


Dear Bobby and Grandpa,

A little tear falls from my eye I swallow hard, try not to cry I think of you so far away Eight years ago you left today Sadly I miss your footsteps As I wander all alone What I would give to hold your hand Your dear face just to see To hear your voice and see your smile That meant so much to me A special smile A special face And in my heart a special place No words I speak can ever say How much I miss you every day Of all that life has given And all thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s left to do I will never know a greater gift Than the years I spent with you

Tourism organization announces new tools for recreational geology EMC News – The Ontario’s Highlands Tourism Organization (OHTO) is pleased to announce the release of two key resources for unlocking the true potential of recreational geology tourism in Ontario’s Highlands. After a two year product development initiative cultivating the niche tourism experience into a lucrative asset for the region, the availability of two new documents – Informational Resources for Recreational Geology and Recreational Access Toolkit – will supply industry operators with the tools for developing their own recreational geology experience, and provide helpful product knowledge to assist with educating visitors. “One of our challenges” says recreational geology project coordinator, Michael Bainbridge, “is to overcome the lack of awareness and knowledge surrounding recreational geology, and encourage industry and consumers to realize geology can hold the same interest and beauty as other nature-based outdoor experiences.” Bainbridge further explains that “for those in the tourism industry, or consumers looking for a new experience when visiting the region, there is an enormous wealth of information out there but they don’t know where to start looking, and much of what has been written has been very technical. We’re working to take the interest in geology out of the classroom and into the field.” In addition to the two new industry resources, the OHTO will also update their website and develop promotional materials to begin marketing the completed development work to date. Nicole Whiting, OHTO manager, believes “providing these resources and

encouraging tourism businesses to use them is an important strategy for the OHTO, since it is tools like these that will help to empower our stakeholders as we look towards a more industry-led model for continued growth and development.” Informational Resources distills hundreds of individual sources down into one document – from contact information of experts in various fields, to currently in-print consumer guidebooks, and vast databases of known, but largely unexplored potential. Although it’s primarily geared towards industry, and not the consumer directly, it highlights some of the more useful, popular and accessible sources of information available. Everyone will therefore find something of value through using the resource, regardless of whether they’re trying to identify a potential recreational geology destination, or simply enjoy it for themselves. The second resource, the Recreational Access Toolkit, seeks to address another common challenge affecting access to opportunities for outdoor activity: private property concerns and fear of increased risk of liability. There are countless places to explore recreational geology in the Highlands (both known, and as yet unknown), and considering favourable changes to the law surrounding occupiers’ liability in Ontario, and recent examples of public/private shared land use, the OHTO believes there is a great opportunity to counteract these challenges. For more information, please contact the Ontario’s Highlands Tourism Organization at 613-629-6486 or emily. Submitted by Ontario’s Highlands Tourism Organization.

Perth man wins RAV4 at Carleton Place Tim Hortons By TARA GESNER

EMC News – After rolling up the rim of his Tim Hortons coffee cup – size small – Perth resident Jeremy Malloch became the owner of an all-new 2013 Toyota RAV4. The RAV4 is the grand prize in the popular RRRoll up the Rim to Win contest at Tim Hortons. This year the restaurant chain is giving away 40 vehicles, and 37 have been claimed to date. “I shook like a leaf,” Jeremy told the Canadian Gazette on Monday morning (April 22) out-

side the Franktown Road location. “I didn’t believe it.” In front of family, friends, excited customers and Tim Hortons and Toyota representatives, he received the keys to his new ride from owner David Peters. “He didn’t get to pick the colour, but I don’t think that really matters,” said his father, Erik Malloch. The RAV4 is silver. “Having a grand prize winner at our restaurant is exciting for our guests, team members and the community,” said Peters. “Our guests are happy when they win a donut or a coffee, so


you can imagine how thrilling it is when someone rolls up the rim and realizes they’ve won a new vehicle.” Jeremy was on the second day of a new construction job in Carleton Place when he experienced the stroke of luck. “I bought him the coffee,” said Erik with a smile. “I kept the cup with me all day,” said Jeremy. “Right now I drive a 1998 Toyota Corolla,” he added, “and I am going to keep it.” The RAV4 will be for recreational use. “The 2013 Toyota RAV4 is

built right here in Canada (Woodstock, ON),” said Dmitri Senkov, sales manager at Tony Graham Kanata Toyota. “It is one of our most popular vehicles.” Other prizes offered by way of the contest, which runs until cup supplies last: 100 $5,000 MasterCard prepaid cards; 1,000 Napoleon Gourmet Grills; 25,000 $100 Tim Cards; and millions of coffee and food prizes. Prizes may be claimed until May 19, 2013. Staff at the Carleton Place Tim Hortons were thrilled with Jeremy’s win. However, at first they thought he was joking.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were texting and she was in a different area. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I heard and felt the concussion of the blast. You could just feel it in your body as a heavy thud,â&#x20AC;? explained McGuire. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everyone around just stopped and mouths were hanging open.â&#x20AC;? McGuire was standing, not factoring in buildings in the way, only 200 yards from the explosions. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I passed through there just 10 minutes before,â&#x20AC;? said McGuire. â&#x20AC;&#x153;At that point I did not know what it was and had heard the second bomb, which seemed further away.â&#x20AC;? The family was soon able to connect and were now faced with trying to get out of the downtown core to where their car was located, which had been parked farther away due to a fateful turn. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Leah was going to park out of town and take the subway but the parking lot was full so she had to drive into the city and then she got lost,â&#x20AC;? said McGuire. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Had she taken the subway we would not have had a way out.â&#x20AC;? McGuire says things just clicked to keep them away from the finish area. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She was driving to meet me and missed the exit and had to circle back. If not, she would have been standing right there watching me,â&#x20AC;? said McGuire. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am thankful she missed the exit and had to double back on the highway. A minute or two either way and we would have been in the thick of things.â&#x20AC;? He described the area as â&#x20AC;&#x153;pretty crazyâ&#x20AC;? with police and firefighters everywhere and a sense of confusion. His main concern was getting his family safely to their car, which was four kilometres away. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We tried to go one way and people were saying we couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t because it was so bloody,â&#x20AC;? said McGuire. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were right down there with the emergency services and we had to jump over and move barricades to get through with our

Carleton Place hires Dave Joy as new Ocean Wave Fire Company deputy fire chief

EMC News – The Ocean Wave Fire Company (OWFC) in Carleton Place has a new deputy fire chief. The town introduced Dave Joy as the department’s second-in-command at council’s regular meeting on April 9. “It was official, however, on the Monday,” he said. Family members joined Joy in council chambers for the introduction. “They have been very supportive,” he said. Mayor Wendy LeBlanc commented: “I am very pleased Dave Joy has been hired as our new deputy fire chief. He brings with him years of experience working as a member of the Ocean Wave Fire Company, and has proven himself to be a strong, capable leader.” Joy’s appointment is subsequent to the departure of Rod Black from the role earlier this year. Black is Lanark Highlands Township’s new fire chief. Joy, 44, joined the OWFC as a volunteer firefighter in 2000. “I became second lieutenant in 2007 and captain in 2008, and I was hired as a full-time fire prevention officer in 2011,” he said. “It was always a goal of mine to move up (in the department); how-

til you are doing it,” he said. The deputy chief called the OWFC team “a great group of men – second to none in eastern Ontario.” Currently, there are 24 members, including the chief and deputy chief. “We are short two people,” said Joy. “A full squad would be 26 people.” “I look forward to working with Dave as part of the senior management group,” said OWFC fire chief Les Reynolds. “He brings a lot to the position.” He noted Joy’s promotion ensures the OWFC would continue to provide a superior level of protection to Carleton Place citizens. “The fire service is going to face many changes and challenges in the next few years, both provincially and here in our own community,” said Reynolds, “and I am confident with leaders like deputy chief Joy we will only continue to improve.” The deputy chief will manage and supervise all aspects of training, assume overall responsibilities of the department in the absence of the chief, and much more. “I am a working deputy chief, fighting fires and lending a hand when and where needed,” said Joy. He is certified as both a level one company officer and a trainer/facilita-

tor, and he is nearing completion of the fire prevention officer program at the Ontario Fire College. “Dave has always been known as a problem solver who works well with all generations and types of people, a strength that will serve him well in his new role,” said Reynolds. “I see him as a great representative for the department and a great role model for our younger firefighters.” Joy was born in Peterborough and raised in Brampton, and currently lives on the outskirts of town in Mississippi Mills with his wife Kristine (an emergency nurse in Carleton Place), and two sons, Andrew (22) and Bailey (17). “Andrew wants to become a volunteer firefighter with the town,” he said. One of Joy’s fist official tasks as deputy chief, a series of suspicious fires that took place in the early morning hours of April 5 – a house on Lisgar Street. and a shed Princess Street. “I fought fire that night,” he said. Later that day, two vehicles were damaged by fire on Princess Street, in addition to a porch on George Street. Going forward, Joy’s main goal as the town continues to grow is to maintain the level of fire service protection.

Dean family celebrates official opening of Almonte grocery store with ribbon cutting By TARA GESNER


EMC Business – The Dean family observed the official opening of its newest Mike Dean’s Super Food Store on April 20. The family-owned and operated grocery store is located in Almonte at 430 Ottawa St. On Saturday the store was packed with customers, politicians and members of the Dean family in celebration of the opening and ribbon cutting ceremony. According to store manager James Egan, a soft opening took place about a month and a half ago. “Today we find ourselves standing in our sixth operation,” he said. “Congratulations, Mike!” Mike Dean’s Super Food Stores, in business for 37 years, boast national brand products at direct warehouse prices, and the Almonte location joins

Denzil Ferguson.


the family’s growing chain of stores in Chesterville, Winchester, Vankleek Hill, Bourget and Sharbot Lake (coming soon). “Welcome!” said Mississippi Mills mayor John Levi. “We are really happy to have Mike and Gord (father and son) bring a store to town, which means more jobs.” He noted the municipality had been struggling to get a store in the Ottawa Street mall since 2002. “It is really exciting to get this mall rolling – to get it filled,” continued Levi, “and we have heard nothing but good things about you, and I am sure they are all right.” Carleton-Mississippi Mills Member of Parliament Gordon O’Connor, who was on hand at Saturday’s official opening, was pleased to see another store in the modest community because it translated to much-needed jobs.

“I understand from your pattern that you like to go into the smaller towns,” he said, “and I think it is really great what you are doing.” “We like being the community grocery store,” said Mike. He noted his grandmother left Liverpool, England at the age of 11 for Canada. She ended up in Pakenham. Her sister settled in Carleton Place. “Both were married and had families,” said Mike, “and as a result, I spent quite a bit of time in Pakenham as a young boy.” With the new store in Almonte he said it was like coming home. Egan first visited Almonte in early November (2012). “I took a tour around town and was quite impressed with how clean it was,” he said. “More importantly, when I came to start work in February, it was really friendly.” Egan promised to return the favour to the customers of Almonte.

Tragedies bring out the best and worst in people EMC Editorial - In the case of the bombs exploded at the Boston Marathon on April 15, the worst is painfully obvious. Three people dead, including an eightyear-old boy, and more than 100 others injured. The result was an attempt to create terror, to hurt people, possibly to try and change the public’s behaviour. Strangely enough, this was balanced by the reaction of the public. When the bombs went off, a flood of people rushed onto the streets. At first, it was a knee-jerk reaction to the horror and confusion of the scene. But almost immediately afterwards, another, larger flood of people rushed towards the site of the blast, nurses, doctors, paramedics and emergency workers helping the victims and sealing off the area to look for additional bombs and to prevent them from

exploding. Runners stranded en route to the finish line were surrounded by Boston residents who offered them clothing, water, warm clothing and cellphones to contact their loved ones. If this was one of Boston’s worst hours, it was also one of the finest. This act of terrorism did not have the desired effect, if the reactions of some of the runners we spoke to following the blast is anything to judge. Many runners praised the marathon and said they hoped to compete in the annual 42-kilometre race once again – if they qualify. Ottawa will play host to its own prestigious running event, Ottawa race weekend on May 24 and 25. Following the explosions at the Boston Marathon, Ottawa race weekend organizers

acknowledged that the attack made them more conscious about security surrounding the annual event, which attracts more than 40,000 runners. But it certainly won’t stop them from holding the event. Terrorists have tried in the past to instill a culture of fear surrounding large public gatherings – for instance the backpack bombing at the 1996 Atlanta Summer Olympics that killed two people and injured 120. But every Olympics since has simply grown bigger and better.

And the athletes and the fans continue to flock to the events. Acts of terrorism are hard to predict and difficult to completely prevent, however they are rare events and have a negligible effect on the public, except to make them more security conscious. The Boston Marathon bombing is no different. The resiliency of the fans and runners in the face of a horrific crime is one more example of tragedy bringing out the best in people.

&!! ! &   ! & !  & $ &!    & !  " &  $ #














Deputy mayor says he will continue to do whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best for town ratepayers for years now, I must admit to being sensitized to public perceptions, that is to say what the readers of the Canadian Gazette EMC are fed by both the editors and letters to the editors. The larger and long range plans as well as the nuance and peripheral issues seem to be ignored in favour of a good story. I say this because, as one of your councillors, we must take the long view; we must try and keep our commitment to you to support the downtown and not go off helter skelter every time a developer comes in with a new idea. As to the property on Hooper St. that certain people have said would be a cash cow â&#x20AC;&#x201C; with which I can agree if one takes the short-term view to sell employment property paid for by taxpayers to subsidize for residential use which is worth four to six times as much. My first problem is that the property was bought to try and attract industry and selling the last

bit of employment land would stop this effort in its tracks. My second is, is the town selling taxpayer-subsidized property in competition with the local land developers down the street? That is to say if the project is that great why not just move it down the street and buy the equivalent property a few doors down McNeely Avenue. Next on my list is the fact that I ran to try and put some long-term and professional planning in place and supported many studies at a cost of thousands of dollars to see how we could support the downtown. I spent hundreds of hours with the consultants to incorporate their findings into our Official Plan and set out a plan that would best serve our town in general and the core specifically (provide incentives for downtown development) for the foreseeable future. To this end, it was decided to push downtown development and keep employment on Hooper St.

with the last of our development property, to give the economic development office some place for industrial (employment) and to prevent a fear that people will not come downtown if development continues on the periphery. The letter writers are correct. If we give free reign to nouveau developers and industrial land for residential development in competition with the residential rates of long-time local developers who invested in property along McNeely years ago, we could have gained immediate tax dollars but at what cost? I have and will continue to do my best to look at the big/long range picture and not the short-term. If short-term ad hoc decisions based on pretty pictures is the way to go, let me know and I wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t bother spending my time, energy and money on the next election because you will have spoken!

DEAR EDITOR: I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t normally break council solidarity by writing to the editor; but in this case, I feel I have to inject some information into this one-sided/unfair diatribe on Hooper St. My experience both in the Department of Defence and in committees has been that once a decision is made it is made by the group and â&#x20AC;&#x153;everyoneâ&#x20AC;? takes ownership â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and gets purloined or praised for their decision as a group. However, as a fellow councillor has seen fit to put his point of view in the public domain, I feel I have to comment. If one takes the view that one can accept the proposal of a developer out of hand and change what I thought was well planned future development for multiple years for short-term immediate gain, without consideration for future development and expansion and support for our main street, so be it! However, having been involved in politics and representing

More birds return to area after long, cold winter EMC Lifestyle â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Updating my April reports, in Carleton Place, April 10, Freda Sneddon had Tree Swallows flying over the river at her home. Two days later, Jennifer Butler spotted two pair of Buffleheads downriver from the McNeely Avenue bridge. In Pakenham, Ray Holland reported the first Brown-headed Cowbirds, in his garden. As well, he had Yellow-bellied Sapsucker and a Gray Catbird, also first reports. Four days later, Ray observed American Woodcock, Ruffed Grouse, Sandhill Cranes, a Yellow-rumped Warbler, and both Ruby-crowned and Golden-crowned Kinglets. That is a great spring list of returnees. Moving down to Carleton Place, Dorothy Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Brien noted the Common Loon on Mississippi Lake along with many ducks. Dorrice and Gary Hanes had a Fox Sparrow on April 3, then a Field Sparrow and two Purple Finches

Strictly for the Birds LYNDA C. BENNETT

April 10. That day along Highway 15/ County Road 29, Lil Mohr had three Sandhill Cranes in a valley by the river, on her property. Meeting my friend Randy Marinelli for coffee, he gave me a list of birds seen at his home. April 2, an American Kestrel came, and on April 5, two Song Sparrows arrived. The first Eastern Phoebe returned April 7, as did a second Kestrel. The previously seen Red-shouldered Hawk came back, and best of all (for me) was a Winter Wren April 9. I love their song, for such a

small bird. Randy has seen several Eastern Meadowlarks, a large flock of American Robins, plus three Great Blue Herons flying over his property. Bev Relfe, Clayton area, has seen the first loon around Taylor Lake this spring, but there is no open water yet. Howard Robinson of Tatlock Road in Mississippi Mills, had over 100 Common Redpolls at their home, a pair of Barred Owls, and the bluebirds are back checking the boxes. Brown Creepers are busy feeding along his lane. On April 16, Randy Marinelli called to report six Tree Swallows checking the nest boxes, as is a male bluebird. He now has three Winter Wrens, a Northern Flicker, and five Goldencrowned Kinglets all singing and dining along his trails. Please call Lynda Bennett at 613256-5013 or email bennett@magma. ca with your bird reports.

Volunteer fair a huge success for Notre Dame Development charges to rise EMC News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; More than 400 students from grades 8 to 11 at Notre Dame Catholic High School (NDCHS) attended the Volunteer Fair held on April 4 at their school. The volunteer fair provided groups of students the chance to find out more about the importance of community volunteerism and meet various local volunteer organizations who could assist them with achieving their 40 hours of community volunteer time. Leigh Bursey was the guest speaker for the event. Bursey is the youth engagement and volunteer coordinator for the Volunteer Centre of St. Lawrence-Rideau. He is also a city councillor in Brockville, chair of Brockvilleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first Youth Advisory Committee, and sits on the board for the Ontario Non-Profit Housing Corporation and PFLAG Canada. Bursey provided

inspirational stories and discussed â&#x20AC;&#x153;why students should volunteer in their community.â&#x20AC;? Dave Chaplin, the principal of NDCHS was a supportive force behind this event. Chaplin saw the value of this event and was able to schedule it so that all students had an opportunity to benefit from the fair. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Leigh was really able to capture the studentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s interest and did a great job in explaining the benefits of volunteerism in a community,â&#x20AC;? he said. The result of this fair had over 150 students sign up for a variety of volunteer opportunities in our community. Lanark County Interval House (LCIH) was just one of the community agencies with staff on hand. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We really appreciated the

opportunity to connect with so many potential youth volunteers all in one place. We came away with three full sheets of names to follow up with. I think this was a great success,â&#x20AC;? noted Heather Currie Whiting of LCIH. The volunteer fair was coordinated as part of a community engagement plan that is being undertaken by the Carleton Place and District Chamber of Commerce and the Carleton Place Farmersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Market with funding from the Ontario Trillium Foundation. To find out how your organization can be part of the next upcoming volunteer fair, please contact Chamber of Commerce marketing coordinator/community liaison Amber M. Hall at 613-257-1976 or Submitted by Amber M. Hall, marketing coordinator/community liaison with the Carleton Place and District Chamber of Commerce.


EMC News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Development charges are set to go up in Mississippi Mills. A public meeting was held on April 16 to discuss the proposed changes, however no one showed up to ask questions on the study. The meeting was a requirement under the Development Charges Act and since council had made the meeting public two weeks prior, the amendment will now go before council at a special meeting on April 23. Currently, the development charge for a single-detached residential unit is $8,198 and the proposed increase is $10,704. For commercial, the current charge is $1.67 per square foot and

the proposed change is $2.74 per square foot. One of the reasons for the amendments is to update capital costs for outdoor recreation, water, wastewater and septage treatment services. Some of the development-related projects that will be funded through these charges are Central Park and Waterfront Park within Riverfront Estates and Mill Run Park. They will also help with growthrelated development to wells seven and eight, construction of a new storage reservoir and transmission water mains, all of which were identified in the master plan report. The town imposes development charges to recover the increase in needs for service arising from growth and are calculated and payable when building permits are issued. R0012028855_0411

Textile museum has successful 2012, aims to raise funds for elevator in 2013 EMC News – The Mississippi Valley Textile Museum celebrated 2012 at its annual general meeting (AGM) on March 27. “It was a very good year,” said executive director/curator Michael Rikley-Lancaster. “Visitorship was up due to the high caliber programming and exhibitions we were able to bring to Mississippi Mills.” Rikley-Lancaster said it was a real celebration of the museum’s accomplishments of the past year. “It was amazing at the AGM to step back and look at everything we accomplished in 2012,” said RikleyLancaster. “It was a real celebration of what our team was able to accomplish after setting these goals.” The main goal the museum was able to achieve was installing a new heating/air conditioning/ventilation system after receiving two grants totalling $90,400. “It’s opened up doors for us to use the full building and use it all year,” said Rikley-Lancaster. “It also enhances the care of the artifacts we have, we are now able to store them at their proper temperature.” The 2012 board of directors were all elected on for another year and include: president Kathy Priddle, Nancy Giardino, Carolyn Gibbs, John Hamilton, Barb Dickson and Town of Mississippi Mills councillor Bernard Cameron. Rikley-Lancaster commends the board for all of their fundraising efforts in 2012 as they were able to raise $52,551. “They raised funds for the operations and to help pay off some the accumulation of debt. It was tremendous to see the community contrib-

The Friends of the Mississippi Valley Textile Museum also made a huge contribution to the museum in 2012 by donating $4,100. They helped out at a number of community events and provided a total of 5,700 volunteer hours. “They helped to form the museum and with all of their strength and support…they have baked, served food and cleaned. What they have contributed is wonderful,” said Rikley-Lancaster. “If it wasn’t for them I don’t think we would have quite the presentation that we do.” Looking ahead, the two major goals for the museum in 2013 are applying for funds to install an elevator, which will cost $67,600,

and presenting their new education and re-development project with the Diefenbunker Canada’s Cold War Museum in Carp. Rikley-Lancaster says the elevator is required for two key reasons. “We have a wonderful core of volunteers who are aging and they want to continue to volunteer and with an elevator they can do that longer,” said Rikley-Lancaster. “We want equality for everyone to get be able to get to the exhibits.” At the end of the AGM, Doreen Wilson, curator of the North Lanark Historical Museum, presented on its Digitization, Oral Histories and Accessibility project. “The board is very impressed with the North Lanark Historical

I would also like to acknowledge the members of the Volunteer Services Committee and the Auxiliary, who are volunteers supporting volunteers, and thank them for their hard work. Members of the Hospital’s Board of Directors and of the Foundation Board are all volunteers as well, who give many hours of their time to provide guidance, oversight and leadership.

Submitted photo

The Township of Beckwith raised a flag to mark April as Autism Month on April 4. Above, from left: Beckwith councillors Faye and Tim Campbell; reeve Richard Kidd; Amy Booth, co-founder of the Lanark Autism Support Group; councillor Brian Dowdall; and chief administrative officer Cynthia Moyle.

EMC Events â&#x20AC;&#x201C; There is a familiar saying: â&#x20AC;&#x153;One manâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s trash is another manâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s treasure.â&#x20AC;? On Saturday, May 4, the West Carleton Coupon Club (WCCC) is hosting a Carleton Place Freecycle Exchange at the municipalityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Carambeck Community Centre. The unique event, a fundraiser for the Carleton Place and District Memorial Hospital (CPDMH), runs from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Moreover, the exchange is an opportunity to inform/ educate the public about re-purposing used products. Admission is only $4 per person; children under 12 get in free. Festivities include free Starbucks coffee and prize draws, concessions (baked goods), information and display booths, and a kidâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s craft area that utilizes recycled materials, of course. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Both the Town of Carleton Place and Mississippi Valley Conservation will have a booth setup,â&#x20AC;? said Sarah

Brownis, organizer and WCCC member. Other accessible information on May 4: businesses offering products or services for trade or barter; artists repurposing old materials into new forms; organizations working on environmental issues; crafters bringing new life to old jewelry, clothing or furnishings; recycling and composting tips; and much more. So how does the freecycle exchange work? Simply pay the entry fee and take away any of the many free items donated by residents. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a great opportunity to find out about the many resources available in the community for recycling,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Participants can learn how to be green, reducing their carbon footprint in a local way.â&#x20AC;? Items leftover from the exchange will be donated to the 5th Annual Royal LePage Garage Sale, which benefits Lanark County Interval House. Individuals interested in participating or donating a prize item can contact Brownis at or 613-253-8952.


EMC News â&#x20AC;&#x201C; On April 4, the Township of Beckwith acknowledged autism by raising the autism flag for awareness at the Township of Beckwith municipal building. Autism Ontario provided the flag. The Township of Beckwith council wanted to help spread awareness of Autism across Ontario and throughout our area by flying the flag for the month of April. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Because of the flag raising and the awareness information that was sent regarding autism, I was made aware that autism is not a mental illness it is a neurological disorder with no cure however, individuals with autism can lead productive and fulfilling lives,â&#x20AC;? stated reeve Richard Kidd. Present at the flag raising with council and staff was Amy Booth, co-founder of the Lanark Autism Support Group. Lanark Autism Support Group is one of the largest autism support groups in Ontario.

County and town seek cell phone gap information

EMC News – Cell phone dead zones cause many residents headaches. Whether it’s trying to dial a number from outside your house or if you are stuck on the side of a road, service gaps in rural areas are a concern for many. The Town of Mississippi Mills is working with Lanark County to help fix this problem by mapping out where those service gaps are. “Any cell phone information on dead zones, we need that information sent into us,” said Coun. Val Wilkinson at the April 16 Town of Mississippi Mills council meeting. Wilkinson, who also sits on Lanark

County council, noted that the issue recently came up at a meeting and encourages residents to contact the town on any known gaps. “Getting that information and those locations as soon as possible is key in trying to obtain service for those areas,” Wilkinson told the Canadian Gazette. The Clayton-area councillor says that specific location is a problem issue due to line of site and lack of towers in the area. “We are looking for other areas that are having difficulties as well,” Wilkinson. “We are looking for people who don’t have cell phone coverage or if they have difficulty with their coverage.”

Fiddler’s Friends concert May 5 EMC Events – Family fun, a cool libation, tasty light refreshments and traditional Ottawa Valley fiddling equal a great afternoon concert at Almonte Old Town Hall. Doors open and the fun begins at 12:30 p.m. on Sunday, May 5. The concert kicks off with local group Irons in the Fire and continues with a full program presented by award winning youngsters, valley veterans and contest circuit favorites. All performers appear in support of the Community Foundation of Ottawa Danny O’Connell Memorial Award, presented annually to a traditional fiddler under 25. The annual award is produced from the capital generated by the O’Connell family and friends of tradi-

tional music. The fund is owned by the Community Foundation of Ottawa (information is available at Recipients are nominated by the Renfrew County Fiddlers, the Ottawa Traditional Fiddling and Folk Art Society, and the Irish Society of the National Capital Region. Expect performances by recent award winners Brendan Cybulski, Joe Gervais, Elly Wedge, Ellen Daly and assorted valley steppers. Piano accompaniment provided by John Mitchell. Tickets ($15) are on sale at Couples Corner, Mississippi Mills Musicworks in Almonte and by phone from Mill Street Books 613-256-9090, as well as at the door. For more information, call 613-256-3786.

Lanark County is currently working with a contractor for Bell through a federal program created to improve communications in rural areas of the province. The hope is with the information collected on the gaps they will be able to start working on new towers. Recently, there have been four new tower locations approved and installed in North Frontenac and one additional site has been approved and will be installed at the Calabogie Race Track. Although Lanark County is currently working with Bell, it hopes to gather information on all cell phone companies that have existing gaps in service in the area. In turn, they will be supplying that information to all cell phone companies. Anyone with information on the gaps in cell phone coverage is encouraged to contact Town of Mississippi Mills chief administrative officer Diane Smithson at

Enerdu hydro expansion meets growing community opposition Mississippi Valley Field Naturalists founder Cliff Bennett provided an overview of the Appleton wetlands issue and the cause of the massive wetland die off. Bennett explained that at a Nov. 28 meeting held by the Ministry of Natural Resources, several scientific presentations were made to the Mississippi Water Management Plan Public Advisory Committee, with the committee unanimously recommending that the plan reduce compliance levels at the Enerdu Generating Station to restore historic water levels on Mississippi River reach 18. Bennett ended his presentation by stating that the action to amend the plan had been in the hands of the Ministry of Natural Resources, Kemptville office staff for 134 days, without action. Local realtor Harold McKay spoke about infringement of riparian rights under common law in Ontario and outlined current and proposed infringements of those rights as he saw it by Enerdu. McKay said that the process of organizing the infringed land owners was underway and encouraged all riparian land owners on reach 18 of the Mississippi River, or shoreline residents of Coleman Island to contact the Mississippi RiverWatchers. O’Malley said after the meeting that potential compensation costs to riparian owners was a contributing factor to the demise of the Petawawa project. Almonte resident Brad Jones lives beside the Mississippi River Power Corporation’s new hydro generating station at the base of the lower falls. He issued a community warning to beware of the pretty pictures

would compound the existing risk of flood. Seaman’s report has been requested by the Town of Mississippi Mills and Mississippi Valley Conservation for further study. Cathy Blake concluded the evening with a thoughtprovoking photo presentation of the current Almonte riverscape and referred to the proposed development area as the ‘Jewel’ of Almonte. Her presentation included photos warning of things to come such as cautionary signage fences and navigation restriction barriers barring access to a historic public space rich in natural beauty in the middle of town. The audience was visibly moved by Blake’s passionate plea for preservation. The Mississippi RiverWatchers summarized their concerns as: • the ongoing and unresolved destruction of the Appleton wetlands, • the scale of the proposed structure occupying one-third of the river, • increased flood risk, • loss of a valued community recreational resource, • loss of the upper waterfalls, a popular view from the Riverwalk, • a cost without benefit to the community. The last question of the evening was from audience member Mike Caughey, who directed his question to Mississippi Mills mayor John Levi and members of council present: “Council has an obligation to express their leadership and protect this beautiful town! Where are you on this issue?”

offered by developers to promote the project and showed shocking photographic evidence of the pastoral scene offered to promote the project versus the large concrete monolithic structure that now dominates the former park. Fellow resident Brian Young displayed a scale model of the proposed project created from the drawings provided by Enerdu. The crowd reaction could best be described as jaw dropping as the scale of the proposed structure in the midst of the town riverscape was revealed. Young explained that the model would be on display in the window of Canica Design at 36 Mill Street in Almonte for public viewing. Retired professional engineer Al Seaman made what was by far the most compelling presentation of the evening, showing an elevated flood risk to the town of Almonte by the proposed project. Seaman explained to the audience that the proposed building site was at the narrowest point in the Mississippi River and according to Mississippi Valley Conservation data, at a location subject to projected flows far in excess of the stated design specification used by Enerdu. Seaman, along with Lee and retired Ontario land surveyor Ross Taggart, have made a downtown flood plain study and showed portions of Mill Street and Farm Street to be at elevated risk of flooding. Seaman displayed 1998 photos of the flood levels and the requirement for sandbags to prevent downtown flooding. Seaman stated that the 1998 event was far below the design flood data and that narrowing the river by one-third at its narrowest point


EMC News – The following is submitted by the Mississippi RiverWatchers. Three-hundred and seventy concerned citizens met April 11 at the Almonte Civitan Hall to hear the Mississippi RiverWatchers’ side of Enerdu controversy. The Mississippi RiverWatchers are a grassroots community organization opposed to the proposed Enerdu expansion project on the grounds that the project does not suit the community. The group has studied both the Enerdu project and the Class Environmental Self Assessment filed by Enerdu last December, and shared their findings amongst the 14 groups who have requested a Part II order from the Ministry of Environment, requesting an unbiased environmental assessment. RiverWatchers chair Bryn Matthews stated at the onset that the meeting was not meant to present Enerdu’s position, which is freely available online, but rather to bring forward what the community group has discovered about the project. The first speaker, Lee Valley Tools founder and long-time Almonte resident Leonard Lee, made an impassioned plea for a community call to action, the sort that raised more than $4 million for the Almonte General Hospital and rallies the 200 volunteers required to produce the annual Almonte Puppets Up! festival. Lee said he can see no benefit to the community in the proposed Enerdu project and asked the community to support those with the passion to fight against it. Meredith Brown of the Ottawa Riverkeepers praised the Mississippi RiverWatchers for their high standards of community conduct and diligent work uncovering the facts on the issue. She compared the Almonte plight with a hard-won victory by the town of Petawawa, who successfully stopped a similar project by galvanizing community will with strong leadership from their town council. Almonte resident Mike O’Malley spoke on behalf of the Mississippi RiverWatchers, providing a history of the issue and explained how the last minute inclusion of small hydro in the Green Energy Act created a gold rush for small hydro development projects in the province, with more than 2,000 potential sites identified. He also explained how the hydro developer led Class Environmental Assessment process works and why a negative outcome was unlikely, and that there are currently 84 small hydro electric projects in Ontario awaiting rubber stamp approved by the province. O’Malley also noted that to the best of his knowledge, the Enerdu proposal was unique in that it was the only proposed hydro development project located within an urban area.

Valley Gamblers go all-in to win national broomball championship By TIFFANY LEPACK

EMC Sports – It was a sweeping success for the Valley Gamblers juvenile boys broomball team – national champions for the second time in three years. The team had nine players from the Almonte area (Scott Bowden, Buddy White-Brown, Ben Kealey, Zack Kealey, Joe Kealey, Kyle Killeen, Ryan Dalgity, Phil Ballantyne, and Lucas Lalonde) with other players hailing from Arnprior, Ashton, Carp, Smiths Falls and Kemptville. The team went 7-0 at the National Championships held in Cornwall from April 3 to 6. “It’s an incredible team, to go for all of Canada and to be the top team is great,” said coach Kevin Kealey. “It was pretty exciting, words can’t explain it, it was just unbelievable,” added Scott Bowden from Almonte. The team was on a mission after losing in the finals last year, 3-2. “After losing last year that was part of the joy with the win this year,” said Bowden. “We played really well, we were solid. We played with a lot of heart and wanted to win.” Bowden praised his teammates included graduating players Joe Kealey, Killeen and Dan Nash, saying it was an honour to play with them. Kealey was very proud of all of the players for their hard work and

dedication over the year. He was also thankful for the support from the fans, parents and sponsor as the season would not have been possible without them. Before the championship the team went 5-2 at the qualifiers in November and went 5-0 at the provincial qualifiers in February. The first game the team played at the national championship they easily defeated the SK2-Bruno Axemen 8-0. Next up they defeated the Sting 3-0 and then it became a little more challenging. “We had some real tough games, we went to overtime against de Saint-Coeur de Marie (winning 3-2) and then the next game against QC1-Sphinx l’Assomption we scored with seven seconds left and it could have gone either way (winning 3-2),” said Kealey. In the last game of round robin play they had no trouble beating Team Manitoba 4-0. In the semi-final, the Valley Gamblers faced the QC1-Sphinx l’Assomption and came out on top 1-0. “They played very well over all and every game we got better,” said Kealey. “In the semi-final we had four lines going and our guys were rested and they only had three lines. I think that was the difference.” The final game had them face-off against the only other undefeated See BROOMBALL page A/CP20

team of the tournament, the QC3Frost. “We had the momentum going then they scored with one second left in the first period. “They put the pressure on at the start of the second and it was all them,” said Kealey.

Bowden was surprised at how close the game was. “It felt like it would be a blow-out but they scored those two quick goals,” he said. “Then we held them off,” Bowden added. Chad Henderson scored the winning goal early in the third period.

“It was a shorthanded goal and Chad was able to shut down their best line the entire game,” said Kealey. Henderson was also named the most valuable player in the gold medal game. The team’s goalie, White-Brown played a big part in ensuring the win late in the third period.

“They were putting the pressure on and he made an unbelievable save. I don’t know how he did it. There was a bit of a scramble, a guy had the shot on the empty net and he came out of nowhere to make the save,” said Kealey as he praised his goalie. “Buddy really saved that game for us,” added Bowden.

The Gamblers were honoured with a number of individual awards as the tournament wrapped up. Joe Kealey was named the tournament most valuable player with six goals and five assists. Ben Kealey was named a first team all-star, while Joe Kealey and Kyle Killeen were second team allstars.

Stress is so pervasive that we often don’t realize it is even present in our lives. We tend to think that “that’s just how life is”. But our ability to recognize, reduce and ultimately adapt to the stresses in our lives is a major factor in our ability to enjoy true health and even our ability to heal. Stress comes in 3 main forms – chemical, emotional and physical stress. Christmas can be a time of huge amounts of emotional stress that can manifest as physical symptoms. When the nervous system is overwhelmed by an accumulation of stress, it has to adapt somehow. Most often with a protective postural shift – the head starts to protrude forward or shoulders round in . What ever it is, that postural adaptation can not be left unattended or your joints will break down before their time. Don’t wait for pain or symptoms to let you know you have a problem, your posture is the window to your health. Get checked before there are symptoms and sail through Christmas full of enough Christmas cheer to share!

Understanding the Value of Your Home Your home may be the biggest investment you’ll ever make. So if you’re serious about protecting that investment, here is some important information to consider when determining the coverage amount for your home. Make sure that your home is insured for at least 100% of its estimated replacement cost Understand the difference between market value and replacement cost Market value is the amount a buyer would pay for a home, including the land, regardless of how much it would cost to rebuild the home. Replacement cost for this purpose is the rebuilding cost necessary to repair or replace the entire home. When buying a new home, be sure to obtain a replacement cost estimate Be aware of any architectural details or unique building materials that may affect your estimated replacement cost, such as: 1. Upgraded bathrooms or kitchens (including cabinets). 2. Finished or partially finished basement. 3. Additional rooms or living space. 4. Custom molding or arched windows. 5. Other unique features.

you have 90 days to notify us of any remodeling or additions to your home that increases its replacement cost by $5,000 or more. Has the rate of inflation risen since your last appraisal? What influences the building costs in your area? Market conditions in your area may impact the amount it will cost to rebuild your home if you experience a loss. Replacement cost estimates are influenced by supply of labour, demand for labour, and the cost of construction materials. Keeping up with the current market conditions in your area and changing your coverage amount accordingly, will help you maintain coverage at least equal to 100 percent of the estimated replacement cost coverage for your home.

Now that spring has sprung, it’s a perfect time for your annual mortgage health check-up. If you make time for a quick review each spring, it may yield you some fruitful financial savings. A home loan review will examine the most common potential monthly savings opportunities. Reviewing your options annually could result in having more money left over at the end of each month. Right now, you can lock into a five-year mortgage below 3%. You could have done the same in 2001 but it would have been about 7%. In 1982 it would have been 18%. Even in the low-rate days of 1952, it would have been about 5.5%. Borrowing costs are lower than any time in modern history. If your current rate is above 4%, now may be a good time for a free spring mortgage check-up. Completing a straightforward annual review will keep your home financing as lean and trim as possible. In other words, you will have a clean bill of mortgage health, which is just what the doctor ordered!

Hike for Hub Hospice May 5 at Mill of Kintail

EMC Events – Step by step, local volunteers are building a strong foundation for the new Hub Hospice. The next step might be quite the hike; two or five kilometres, to be exact. The first ever Hike for Hospice in Mississippi Mills will take place on Sunday, May 5 at the Mill of Kintail registration is from 2 to 4 p.m. with the event scheduled to conclude by 5 p.m. “We are hoping for a fun day, rain or shine,” said Gary Pollock, co-organizer of the hike. “It’s a two or five kilometre hike but no one is counting. The idea is to come out and do something for a good cause.” Although this is the first hike of its kind in the area there are hundreds of similar events planned that day to kick off National Hospice Palliative Care Week being organized by the Canadian Hospice Palliative Care Association. Last year, hikes across Canada raised more than $1.6 million for local hospice palliative care. All funds raised in Mississippi Mills will stay in the area for the ongoing fundraising efforts of the Hub Hospice. The Hub, the well-established local charity in Almonte, the driving force behind the Hub Hospice, is organizing the hike at

the Mill of Kintail. The Hub Hospice is planning on bringing hospice care to the homes of those in need in Mississippi Mills, Carleton Place, Beckwith and Lanark Highlands by the fall. They are currently in the process of hiring a nurse coordinator who will be responsible to organize volunteer training and matching those in need. Pollock calls palliative care something special. “Hospital care is to cure you and at some point you have to realize you are facing end of life. You need to be made comfortable and there is an extreme shortage of this in our area. There is a need to bring that care home,” said Pollock. “The money raised will help with the training of the volunteers and the cost of having an office with the coordinator.” As this is only the first year for the hike there is no minimum amount needed to participate in the event. “Even if they only get $5 we hope they (people) come out,” said Pollock. “This year is more (about) awareness but we hope to raise a substantial amount.” Pledge forms are available at the Hub in Almonte and registration will take place at the Mill of Kintail gatehouse. The kickoff will be at the inner parking lot. Pollock thinks the mill is a great place for the hike. “It’s a wonderful place for people to get out and away from the hustle

and bustle of the city. Maybe you will even see some wildlife,” he said of the site. “The hike will go through open fields, maple groves and around the Indian River.” Pollock is also very thankful to the mill who waived all charges for the use of the buildings. Silly U the clown will be there to welcome the kids and also on site will be the Almonte Radio Club, who will act as trail monitors. “They have their own radio communication devices to track first aid with St. John’s Ambulance who will also be there,” Pollock said. Hospice care is for those who are nearing the end of their life and wish to live at home. It consists of a volunteer coming into a person’s home to provide companionship, play cards or help them with whatever they can. It is not a medical position but to help individuals live comfortably. “The more I talk to people, the more people I find out who has been touched by a situation where people could of benefitted from a hospice,” said Pollock. “People are hiking or volunteering in memory of a family member so people in the future can benefit from a hospice.” For more information on the hike, contact Pollock via email at or call 613-256-4279.

Fifth annual Young Awards to honour two community builders at May 25 gala By TIFFANY LEPACK

EMC Events â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The Young Awards Gala has announced the 2013 award winners but the focus of the event is not just to honour these recipients, but to help keep art programs in local schools. This year the fifth installment of the gala will take place on Saturday, May 25 at 6 p.m. at the agricultural hall on the Almonte Fairgrounds. Tickets are now on sale at an early bird rate of $65 before May 1.

She has also helped with numerous fashion shows that benefit not only local charities but regional and national causes as well. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When it comes to cultural achievement, she has made an international impact on the fashion world in Pakenham,â&#x20AC;? said Argue. Glenda has been involved for a number of years with the Hub and is currently the president, and has volunteered with Almonte in Concert, Puppets Up! and the RiverEdge Festival. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There is nothing that woman canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do,â&#x20AC;? said Argue. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She is a real direct person who is willing to give everything to her community.â&#x20AC;? Al has volunteered with the Mississippi Valley Textile Museum, Mississippi Valley Conservation, Mills Community Support Corporation, Rotary Club of Carleton Place and Mississippi Mills and both he and Glenda are past members of the Valley Players of Almonte. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They have probably been involved in every volunteer opportu-

nity in Mississippi Mills,â&#x20AC;? said Argue. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What they have done is about building community and we hope the youth of Mississippi Mills will be inspired to take a role in building their community, too.â&#x20AC;? Art in schools The awards evening began as the Noreen Young Bursary and Awards dinner, an organization that ran for 13 years and raised more than $100,000 for youth in Mississippi Mills. The Young Awards Gala is now in its fifth year. It continues to raise money for local youths and now puts those funds directly into schools. Argue encourages people to attend the gala to help ensure the arts are alive and well in the schools. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You are paying into local students having access to a variety of arts, music and more,â&#x20AC;? she said. The focus of event is to raise money for arts programs for schools in Mississippi Mills, for which all schools in the area must apply. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We would like to fund programs that hit the most kids or have the most broad access,â&#x20AC;? said Argue. The event last year raised $10,000, and with that the committee was

able to sponsor nine different programs: an art in the classroom and â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Luv to Grooveâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; dance workshop at R.Tait Mackenzie Public School; drumming workshop and visual arts for kids at Naismith Memorial Public School; â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Luv to Grooveâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; dance workshop and puppet making workshop at Pakenham Public School; and at Almonte District High School, funds were used for a musical instrument maintenance/purchases and to support drama production. The goal again this year is to raise $10,000 for a variety of arts programs in the schools.

and new this year are Baker Bobâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, Mill Street Books and Alliance Coin & Banknote. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Without sponsors the event could not happen,â&#x20AC;? said Argue. She is also looking forward to partnering with the Upper Canada District School Board. The gala will include a threecourse meal with appetizers by CafĂŠ Postino, the main course by The Leather Works and desserts will be prepared by Foodies Fine Foods. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We always rotate who does which course plus the culinary arts are part of the arts, too,â&#x20AC;? said Argue. She encourages people to stay Gala informed on the gala by liking it on The event is all volunteer run and Facebook or visiting youngawards. needs the support of the community ca. to make it possible, stressed Argue. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Seeing this is a grassroots move- Volunteers ment, any contribution people can If you would like to volunteer make, whether it is purchasing tick- with setup or tear down for the gala ets, donating an auction item or a on Friday or Saturday, which Argue helping to sponsor the event, it all says is a great way for youth to get directly improves the quality of life involved, contact her at foodiesfineand access to the arts for all students within Mississippi Mills,â&#x20AC;? she said.

Swing into Spring fundraiser with Standing Room Only May 4 in Perth EMC Entertainment – It’s a remarkable testament to staying power that tunes first topping the music charts in the 1930s and 40s remain popular today. Indeed, the work of big band leaders like Benny Goodman, Count Basie, Glenn Miller and the Dorsey Brothers continues to find life and a broad range of fans from all age groups via modern swing orchestras such as Standing Room Only, the 16-member big band that will be performing at the Swing into Spring event at the Perth Civitan Saturday, May 4 at 7 p.m. Now marking its 10th anniversary, Standing Room Only started in 2003 when trombonist and Almonte resident Catherine Illingworth brought some musical friends together under the direction of a former Glebe Collegiate Institute music teacher, Stan Clark. Among the original band members was Elizabeth Sampson, who will be playing alto saxophone and clarinet on May 4. Sampson represents that growing corps of musicians worldwide who remain entranced with big band and swing music, defying the popular wisdom that anything older than yesterday’s twitter feed could possibly interest anyone. In fact, as Sampson and Standing Room Only members point out, the interest is shared by everyone from octogenarians to pre-teens, all of whom show up at their popular monthly tea dances at the Almonte Old Town Hall. (Sampson’s 11-yearold son also plays clarinet and enjoys selling tickets at the tea dances). A member of her high school band, Sampson recalls playing marches and Beatles tunes, but never anything from the golden age of swing. Following a 20-year hiatus from music, during which she studied architecture at Carleton and went on to work both for the federal government and in private practice, Sampson answered the call from Illingworth and got back

Members of the big band Standing Room Only, above, shown here performing in the new motion picture ‘Ming,’ will play a Swing into Spring event at the Perth Civitan on Saturday, May 4. The concert is a fundraiser for the Classic Theatre Festival. Left, Elizabeth Sampson, on alto saxophone, right, is an original band member of Standing Room Only. Submitted photos

into the cycle of weekly band rehearsals, often in her basement, and a growing list of concert and dance commitments. While Standing Room Only’s authenticity is often based on finding the original arrangements for classics from ‘In the Mood’ and ‘One O’Clock Jump’ to ‘Mack the Knife’ and ‘The Pink Panther’, the band is open to new arrangements from the

likes of Michael Buble’s band. Sampson particularly enjoys the way in which the instruments in the band complement each other, building in melody while allowing for improvisation. Asked whether her architectural background influences her approach to music, Sampson agrees with the analogy, noting “there is a structure to the music, with 12 or 16 bar phrases. We have lots of engineers

and computer people in the band.” While Sampson must pay attention to the music and her band director during performances, she cannot help but notice the infectious enthusiasm on the dance floor as couples and individuals foxtrot, waltz, and tango to the band’s tunes. “This music is a lot of fun to dance to,” she says, “and it’s very democratic. Everyone dances

with everyone else.” The band played a packed Civitan Hall in 2010, and was previously in Perth to play a Strawberry Social in 2004 at the Stewart Park bandshell. And while the band playing May 4 will be coming off a gig at the Perley Veterans Hospital in Ottawa, playing for a generation who first bought the records of the swing masters, they’ve also had a recent experience with the film world, appearing in the just-released 1930s-set film, ‘Ming’. That experience was a reminder of the very real difference between recorded and live music, one that those attending the May 4 Swing into Spring event will no doubt appreciate. Sampson says that for the film, the band spent an evening at the Sala San Marco on Preston St. in Ottawa, with the inside done up like the fabled Cotton Club. They were provided white dinner jackets and went through the motions of playing music while dancers took their lead from a piece playing over the radio. “But everyone was very stiff because we were pretending to play this music that was coming out of a radio and everyone was getting frustrated,” she recalls. “So we collectively decided that we would strike out and play ‘In the Mood’, and the dancers started dancing like they hadn’t been dancing all night. The director came up and exclaimed, ‘That’s what I’ve been looking for from you!’ So they ended up having us perform a live piece which was a lot of fun for us.” On May 4, free dance lessons will be provided from 7:30 to 8:30 p.m. by Bob and Evelyn Abell, formerly of Arts in Motion in Perth. The show, a benefit for the Classic Theatre Festival, will also feature a silent auction with items ranging from tickets to the Stratford and Shaw Festivals to a weekend car rental with Enterprise. Tickets to Swing into Spring are on sale at Tickets Please (39 Foster St. in Perth) or by calling (613) 485-6434.

MOVIE: Oblivion STARRING: Tom Cruise, Andrea Riseborough, Olga Kurylenko, and Morgan Freeman DIRECTOR: Joseph Kosinski RATING: PG EMC Entertainment – Oblivion is a hardcore science fiction story that tries to blow your mind. I loved it. My wife on the other hand had some issues. Maybe it’s a guy thing. After the aliens blow up the moon they invade Earth. We win the war, but not without devastating the planet. The surviving population is forced to flee to Saturn’s moon, Triton. Jack (Tom Cruise) and Victoria (Andrea Riseborough) have been left behind as the clean-up crew. Jack’s job is to repair the drones that guard the massive machines converting Earth’s oceans into energy for the colony on Triton. Victoria’s job is to keep an eye on Jack. The war may be over but the surviving aliens, or Scavs, are still waging

a guerrilla war against Jack and the drones. This is Jack’s life. For security reasons his memory was wiped prior to starting his mission so this is all he’s ever known. There is something in his subconscious, however. A trace of a memory. A hint of a life or a time before. It causes Jack to ask questions and to wonder. Then the Scavs cause a space capsule with humans in suspended animation to fall to earth, and Jack gets a whole new set of questions. The lone survivor is Julia (Olga Kurylenko). She seems uneasy, like she’s hiding something or knows something. She convinces Jack to go back to the

crash site to recover the flight recorder, but they get captured by the Scavs. That’s when Jack’s whole world gets turned upside down. Oblivion has all the hallmarks of a great sci-fi film. First the special effects are amazing. The technology looks incredibly futuristic and real even though most of it only exists in a computer somewhere. Second, the bleak post apocalyptic landscape is hauntingly familiar yet disturbingly different. Lastly we have our brave survivors battling mysterious and powerful aliens for the fate of mankind. You can’t ask for more, but what Oblivion does really well, and why it’s worth seeing, are the

twists it takes. Just when you think you’ve figured out the big plot twist you realize that plot twist is just a distraction for the real plot twist. It’s outstanding. Tom Cruise really has an uncanny ability to become his character. That combined with his emotional range and physicality make him highly entertaining to watch. Andrea Riseborough plays Victoria a little cold, a little emotionless, and almost robotic. In other words she is perfect. Julia is one of the few characters who has some idea of what’s really going on. Olga Kurylenko is marvelous as she reins in the panic to deal with where and when she is. Morgan Freeman’s character Malcolm Beech does know what’s going on. He’s a tough no-nonsense military man, and Freeman plays it beautifully. Oblivion is great science fiction right down to the final twist. I loved the ending, but my wife hated it. Must be a guy thing. Mark Haskins’ column is a regular feature of the EMC.

EMC Lifestyle - “Hi Brian, I’m in the market for a new compact auto that will be able to tow my 14’ aluminum boat this summer. What do you recommend?” Roger I haven’t looked at tow ratings for new compact cars in a while, so I was surprised to find that few if any carmakers recommend towing anything with their subcompact or compact vehicles. First, the main consideration when towing anything is the gross trailer weight or the total weight of the trailer, whatever is in or on the trailer, and all the goodies and cargo you might decide to carry. Most aluminum boats of the 14’ variety weigh in at 250 lb. or less as would a light-duty boat trailer. Motor and fuel would take up less than 150 lb., so the average set-up would come in at less than 700 lb. Not too many years ago, just about any subcompact or compact on the road would carry a manufacturer’s tow rating of between 1500-2000 lb., with the only exception being manual transmission or turbo-charged equipped vehicles. Today with the move towards continually variable transmissions (CVT’s) and lighter equipment and body and chassis components to reduce fuel consumption, most carmakers won’t supply a tow rating in their spec sheets and when pressed will simply reply that their vehicles aren’t designed to tow a trailer. I fired off a mass e-mail to my press contacts at the Canadian head offices of the mainstream automakers with the simple question; Are any of your sub-

compacts or compacts rated to tow a trailer? I received answers from Kia, Subaru, Nissan, Mazda, Honda Canada and Chrysler before deadline and all but Chrysler answered that none of their compacts or subcompacts were rated for towing. The Dodge Dart from Chrysler is classed as a compact and rated to tow 1,000 lb. This information should be front and centre on any carmakers website but for whatever reason, most auto execs have chosen to keep this out of view. Perhaps it’s because they don’t want to admit to what some consumers would see as a shortcoming (the fact that their products can’t tow anything at all). And even when checking specs on vehicles that are rated to tow (such as pickups and SUVs) I’ve found it’s always easier to locate the towing spec sheets on a manufacturer’s U.S.-based site as opposed to the Canadian page (.com vs. .ca). Now I know that you can get a trailer hitch for just about anything with four wheels, but if the automaker doesn’t rate the vehicle for towing and you happen to end up at the dealership service department with a transmission problem and a hitch bolted to the back, well then you may end up with some difficulties with war-

ranty coverage. Electric vehicles are still enjoying steady growth in sales and for anyone interested in learning about all the different makes and models available at one place, then North Grenville has an event for you. Being billed as the EVent, it all takes place on Sunday, April 28 at the North Grenville Municipal Centre on County Road 44 just north of Kemptville from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. All of the production electric and gasoline/electric hybrid ve-

hicles will be there along with dealer representatives and vehicle owners giving visitors a chance to learn first-hand what it’s like to own and operate an electric or hybrid vehicle. For further details log onto www. If you have any questions, opinions, or stories on anything automotive please drop me a line, [By email to or directly to listing ‘Question for the Car Counselor’ on the subject line or by post to Record News Communications, 5 Lorne St., P.O. Box 158, Smiths Falls, Ont. K7A 4T1]. When using regular mail, please supply a phone number if you seek direct contact (due to volume I can’t always promise replies).

SAFETY TIPS Candles: If you use candles, make sure you keep them away from all combustible materials. Never leave them unattended and place them out of reach of young children. Candles should be placed in solid, secure candle holders and protected by a glass chimney.

EMC Events â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Saturday, April 27 will be a hive of activity at the Rideau Environmental Action League (REAL) Environment Centre in Smiths Falls. REAL is asking volunteers to help spring clean its own site (85 William St. West in Smiths Falls), as part of Pitch-In Week, and to transplant some young trees, plant clover seed and otherwise tidy up the site. As REAL adds more elements to its environment centre, more attention is needed to keep things looking attractive. Work gets underway at 10 a.m. and will finish by 3 p.m. but whatever hours you can spare in that time frame would be welcome. Bring work gloves and wear solid shoes and appropriate clothing. Please register with either Barb Hicks or Susan Brandum when you arrive. All volunteers who are involved with Pitch-In throughout Smiths Falls are invited to come for a free appreciation barbecue from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. The barbecue is generously sponsored by Winmar Smiths Falls, which is taking on cleaning up Hershey Drive this year. And, at 12:30 p.m., in honour of Volunteer Week and Earth Day, REAL will conduct a volunteer recognition ceremony for its own volunteers. Drop by for a burger, to lend a hand, to plant a seed of community spirit. Put the REAL Environment Centre on your agenda for Saturday, April 27. Submitted by the Rideau Environmental Action League.
