EMC news - Arnprior wants to be noticed. The town has taken several steps recently to market itself better to attract new development and investment to the area. The latest move is adding a marketing and economic development officer to municipal staff. It is a new position that came about through staff restructuring, with the goal of marketing the town both internally and externally. Former Chartwell marketing manager Lindsay Wilson has been hired for the position and started Monday. “We felt we needed somebody with expertise in marketing and economic development,� said town CAO Michael Wildman. “To sort of take hold of that and spread the world about Arnprior.� The creating of a new position is one of several initiatives introduced by Reid, Wildman and council as they try to attract more industrial, commercial, residential and tourist interest in Arnprior and put behind them the bad feelings caused by the Smart Centres debate and eventual rejection. Council has streamlined development and other regulations, revamped the committee structure, and is working on a new website and 10-year plan to guide the town through the next decade. It is holding an open house Monday, May 6 (see Page 3) to hear public comment on its efforts to improve its website and implement new corporate branding for the town.

Bylaw may lengthen summer student employment Patricia Leboeuf pleboeuf@metroland.com

EMC news - Summer students employed by the Town of Arnprior may see their employment last longer than in the past. Previously a bylaw limited student employment to three consecutive years, with certain exceptions. The motion to amend it to allow students to work for the town for up to four consecutive years was raised during the April 22 council meeting. Opinion over the issue was divided. Hiring local students for various summer jobs helps provide valuable work experience. This assists them to distinguish themselves both in the workforce and in their college applications.

This opportunity should be shared and spread amongst as many students as possible, said Reeve Walter Stack. “If somebody is there for three years, in my view, we need to consider passing that job on a bit,” he said. Many students who could profit from work experience are being passed over because the same students are being picked over and over, he added. Coun. Lynn Grinstead agreed. “I almost think it should be cut back from three years,” said Grinstead. “The whole point of having summer students is to help them gain knowledge in the field they are going into. If we keep bringing in the same person, we are totally denying everybody else that.” Student jobs are not guaranteed return

applicants, countered Coun. Daniel Lynch Each student must resubmit a resume and go through the proper channels. “Just because the guy was hired previously that doesn’t mean he gets the job,” he said. At the end of each year the department head or manager has to provide a performance review evaluating that student. Only if that performance review is favorable does that individual go back to the pool of candidates for consideration the following year. Having a particular student hired by the town over several years can be especially beneficial for long-term projects, proponents of the change argued. “I think there are certain circumstances where I think a department head would like to keep the individual and there is value-

added to the town to do so,” said Mayor David Reid. However, he believes that changing the limit from three years to four is irrelevant as exceptions can be made through a written process. The summer student hiring program is slanted to hire the strongest, hardest working students and it provides them with an incentive and puts the onus on the student to do well during the school year. Council will decide to amend the bylaw or not at its May 13 meeting.

Priorpalooza receives grant, unveils musical line-up John.carter@metroland.com

EMC events – The majority of the musical line-up for Priorpalooza has been determined. And a $15,000 provincial grant is expected to help organizers attract a major headliner for the festival. Priorpalooza, which grew out of last year’s Arnprior 150 anniversary festival, is scheduled for June 8. It will feature a full day of musical entertainment and other amusements at Robert Simpson Park. Priorpalooza committee chair Lynn Grinstead said the group is “thrilled” to announce that it has been successful in its Celebrate Ontario grant application. The funds will be a great help with the event, she said. “This is wonderful news. We were so successful with grants and sponsorships with the 150th, and this is exciting to be able to

share this great news too,” she added. In making the announcement, RenfrewNipissing-Pembroke MPP John Yakabuski said the grant from the Ministry of Tourism, Culture and Sport will allow the town to host the Priorpalooza music festival that will attract local artists to showcase their talents. “Arnprior has hosted a number of festivals in previous years and gained the needed experience to successfully manage this type of event in June that I am sure will draw people from all over the Ottawa Valley,” he added. “The beautiful scenic appeal and wonderful community spirit make ‘the Prior’ a most desirable place to visit.” Yakabuski congratulated all those involved whose collaborative effort has made the grant application a success. “Behind the scenes I know that the hard work and dedication by the committee has

already begun,” he said. “It is my hope that Priorpalooza will be enjoyed by all that attend and will be a grand success for the Town of Arnprior.” “We are getting very excited,” said Grinstead. “We’ve had a very good number of applicants for our first Priorpalooza event, so many that it was really hard for the committee to narrow it down to the choices that we made.” She said the committee thanks all those who applied. “We are confident that everyone will agree that we picked a very good variety of acts to perform on June 8. Some you will recognize and some will be new to you, but all are amazingly talented performers.” She said the “wonderful line-up” includes: 11 a.m. - Maria Hawkins (Gospel/Blues); noon - Jill Jeffery (Gospel/Blues); 1 p.m. - Pine Bark Bunch with Bill Connelly

(Country/Folk); 2 p.m. - Jeanika Benoit (Country); 3 p.m. - Jeff Climo (Country/Folk); 4 p.m. - Kelly Ann Wilson (Country); 5 p.m. - Kyle Felhaver (Traditional); 6 p.m. - Rainwater Whiskey (Country); 7 p.m. - Slightly Out of Tune (Classic Rock/ Rock); 8 p.m. - Disturbing the Peace (Classic Rock/ Rock); 9 p.m. – Headliner to be announced. The committee is still working on the other plans for the day, getting a few things firmed up for the children’s activities, as well as food vendors and other offerings. The committee is looking for more more home-based business type vendors to show and sell their wares at Priorpalooza.

Citizens invited to pitch-in’ John Carter John.carter@metroland.com

EMC news – With spring weather finally arriving, the Town of Arnprior is urging its residents to ‘pitch in’ and clean up their neighbourhoods. The town is holding its annual spring pitch-in day this Saturday, May 4. All residents are encouraged to gather at Robert Simpson Park at 9 a.m. to receive garbage bags for a two-hour clean-up blitz around town. As well as picking up litter at Robert Simpson Park, citizens are welcome to trek through their own neighbourhoods in search of unsightly trash. There will also be teams cleaning up at such public areas as Veterans, Caruso and Legion parks. Who knows what people might find. One of the pitch-in participants in Fitzroy Harbour Saturday found one of the new $100 bills. The Arnprior effort is a belated marking of national Pitch-in Week (April 21-27). In sending out the invitation for people to participate, the town says Pitch-in Day “is all about the members of the community coming together to beautify public areas

within the town.” Those wishing to participate can register as individuals or as a group by calling the Nick Smith Centre at 613-623-7301 or emailing to abarclay@arnprior.ca. Participants wishing to pick up garbage in a specific public area in town are asked to divulge their location at the time of registering. The Town will be supplying garbage bags and picking up and disposing of the trash collected. They encourage people to sort out recyclables from the garbage and drop them off in blue boxes that will be set up at Robert Simpson Park. GIVE-AWAY DAY

The Town of Arnprior has also proclaimed Saturday, May 4 Giveaway Day. Residents put unwanted items at the curb with a ‘free’ sign and anyone passing by is welcome to help themselves. What is one person’s junk could be another’s treasure. The town asks that any leftover items be removed by 8 p.m. Saturday. Meanwhile, neighbouring Mississippi Mills, including Pakenham, is holding its annual exchange day over the whole weekend May 3-5.

Residents get three minutes to make points Continued from front

The meeting will run from 6 to 10 p.m. at Our Lady of Perpetual Help Church in Braeside. Considering the level of public interest in the application, which has been in the works for more than six years, council is expecting a large turnout and has booked the church for follow-up meetings at the same time on Tuesday and Thursday if needed to ensure everyone has their say. Mellema said citizens will have three minutes to make their presentations. As well, three ‘experts’ have registered to speak and will be give 15 minutes each. Mellema said the meeting will start with planner Bruce Howarth reviewing the process and updating

what has happened so far. The applicant will then introduce its proposal before the meeting is opened for public comments. After the hearing, council will likely schedule a special meeting to go over the input and see if it needs any unresolved issues clarified. Therefore, it’s not likely to make a final decision until at least one of its June meetings. The public can still submit written input up until the time council makes a decision on the zoning and official plan bylaws. Because of Monday’s hearing, council has changed its May meeting dates to May 14 and 28, with the Planning Advisory Committee meeting May 21.

Budget Con’t from front

The township is also dealing with another decrease in its municipal partnership funding as well as the rising costs of a variety of items from fuel to policing. To bring the budget down to a figure at which council was comfortable, a major road project has been delayed. Council also is proposing dipping into reserves to finish off projects such as the boat launch. Council is expected to adopt the budget at its May 14 meeting.

Library, museum, airport present budget requests Patricia Leboeuf pleboeuf@metroland.com

EMC news - Prior to Arnprior council adopting the town’s 2013 budget, three cultural organizations presented their pitches and shared their past success, failures and upcoming projects with councillors April 8. The budgets for the Arnprior Public Library, Arnprior and District Museum, and the Arnprior Airport were approved April 22 when council passed the town’s budget. To meet with ever-changing technological demands, the Arnprior Public Library asked for funding of $292,370 from the town. The 2013 library budget includes negotiated salary increases and an increase of just under $5,000, partly due to the loss of Community Access Funding. “As you are well aware, the library is more than just a body of knowledge and resources,� said board member Neil Salminen “Libraries are the cornerstone in the municipal cultural planning process,� he added. Comparatively speaking, the Arnprior library has one of the highest per capita uses and lowest costs per circulation items of all Ontario libraries. The library has more than 3,300 acting memberships with over 2,000 from McNabBraeside and Monarch Highlands. “The key for a community to move forward is its ability to create fresh ideas and new knowledge,� said chief librarian Karen DeLuca. The library received the amount it desired. MUSEUM CHANGES

The Arnprior and District Museum asked for

$79,209 from the council. Presenting the budget allows the museum to showcase its yearly achievement while explaining its importance to the town’s landscape, said Museum board chairman Scott Catterill. “The board considers the museum to be the keepers of Arnprior’s material history and heritage while also being an event driven place, which, in time, will generate more visitors and indeed more revenue,� said Catterill. The museum continues to grow and evolve. It received a state-of-the-art display system from the Canadian Museum of Civilization, hosted activities for the town’s 150th anniversary, exhibited the 1987 time capsule and saw a 1928 fire truck driven out of the building to be fixed up and used in local parades. The museum’s second story is also slated to be renovated. A chronological history of the area will be exhibited there. New projects and event are forecasted for next year that will attract more visitors. “Our visitor figures have remained fairly constant,� said Catterill. “Our foreign visitors compositing 12 per cent, out-of-town visitors 54 per cent and Arnprior visitors 32 per cent.� The museum has taken on itself to apply for several grants. It received the Provincial Community and Museum Operational grant for $11,780, a Young Canada Works grant for $6,254, Renfrew County Community Futures Development grant for $8,600, and federal inability Funding: Enabling Accessibility grant for $55,000 for a ramp. The museum has also applied for a grant

from the Ontario Job Creation Fund, among several others. It received all funds requested from council in the budget. AIRPORT ACTIVE

Because the 2013 airport budget has increased by $4,394, the airport commission has asked council for a grant of $60,525. The airport itself is an asset to the community, said Arnprior Airport Commission director Barry Mason. It is a draw for people and the many groups who visit it. “We’ve seen an increase in people who stop in to the airport on Saturday and Sunday and watch the parachuting and just come over and watch the airplanes,� said Mason. “As much as we are going through a recession, I don’t think the activity at the airport is decreasing.� One airplane hanger has been fully completed while two are in construction. Another four hangers are slated to be built in the next two years, which will total 48 hangers. The new hangers follow a green theme, adopting solar panels to cut down on their environmental impact. To minimize traffic and maximize safety, an

electronic gate has been installed, which allows owners to have better access to their hangers while keeping out the public that may get hurt. The airport has had issues with its septic tank. “We are continuing to deal with problems from land contamination,� he said. “Three hanger lots that were up for sale have been out on hold on the recommendation of our council just to mitigate some of the risks of future endeavors until we get the issues resolved with the pump.� Fuel costs may be rising exponentially, but the airport is currently not suffering under the impact. “It hasn’t affected the amount of traffic coming into the airport,� said Mason. “Sales remain pretty stable.� The runways were maintained on during the summer, cracks were filled and the above ground fuel hoses had to be replaced after they wore out. The floatplane base was renovated and will continue to be worked on, allowing for more business to be generated, said Mason. More projects are on the horizon, but the airport received less than requested, with council giving it $56,131.

How high’s the water, mama The Ministry of Natural Resources said Tuesday a flood warning remains in place for parts of Renfrew County. which is no suprise as the Madawaska River is high through Arnprior. Warm weather is continuing to influence the rapid melting of the remaining snow pack. Generally, high water is continuing or just beginning to decline in streams, rivers and lakes across the county. There is still localized flooding on the Madawaska and Ottawa rivers. The MNR advises all residents to keep their children, pets and themselves away from lakeshores and riverbanks. Shorelines are extremely unsafe.

Elementary School Volunteers Dairy Farmers of Ontario would like to thank all of the volunteers that help run the Elementary School Milk Program. Milk Coordinators and their helpers have been volunteering their time in over 2800 Ontario elementary schools for the past 26 years. Cold, nutritious milk is made available to over 1,000,000 students daily, with their dedicated help.

MP’s motion, petition seek to stop tearing up of CN rail line

R0012069060/0502

SUBMITTED

Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke MP Cheryl Gallant is backing the efforts of Transport Pontiac-Renfrew and its co-chair Terry Gibeau to stop CN from tearing up tracks along its Ottawa Valley line. ture economic activity in Eastern and Northern Ontario to be removed.” CN announced its plans to remove rail lines throughout Ontario in 2008. According to the Can-

ada Transportation Act, 1996, if no rail line offers to buy the lines, CN is required to give governments, transit authorities, and corporations partnered with governments a chance to buy the rail

lines for their own use. At that time, no municipality was able to put forward an offer to CN due to the fiscal limitation imposed by the 2008 global recession. TPR was formed in

2009 with the hopes of allying with governments throughout Renfrew County and Western Quebec to buy the rail lines for passenger rail and shipping use. Despite repeated requests, CN has been unwilling to re-open the bidding process for their rails lines since the original 2009 deadline passed. The lines were originally built with public funds in the late 19th and early 20th century, so every opportunity to find a buyer should be exhausted before they are removed, insists TPR. Gallant’s motion, presented April 23, reads: “That, in the opinion of the House, the Government should impose a 10-year moratorium on the removal of the Canadian National Railway rail lines between North Bay and Montreal, recognizing that taxpayers’ dollars helped to build the historic trans-

portation system, and that with a recovering forestry industry and the development of the Ring of Fire, a long haul transportation system may be vital.” Her motion was seconded by NipissingTimiskaming MP Jay Aspin. The CP rail line up the Valley was torn up last year, leaving the CN route the only one left with tracks.

Meanwhile, Gibeau is urging residents to sign the save-the-rail-line petition as soon as possible. “This is our last chance to save the portion of rail from Pembroke to the Quebec border,” he said. Copies of the petition can be downloaded from Gallant’s website, copied, signed and sent back to the MP’s office postage free.

OPINION

EDITORIAL

Workplaces still not so safe If the organizers of the annual Day of Mourning ceremonies across Canada Sunday wanted some fresh examples of why workplace safety is still a major issue, they got it. They could look in their own country to the furor over safety in Alberta prisons or farther afield to the disaster that has killed so many workers in Bangladesh. In this country, working conditions have improved over the past several decades in most jobs. However, there are still far too many workers dying in preventable incidents - almost 1,000 deaths annually in Canada and more than 300 in Ontario. With all the new technology along with stricter health and safety regulations, the continuing death rate is a crime. And that’s what the Canadian Labour Congress is trying to emphasize. Too often, workplace deaths are not accidents. They are the result of negligence. If that is the case, someone should be held accountable, and in criminal proceedings if that is justified. With so many deaths still plaguing the

workplaces in what is one of the safest places in the world, it’s no wonder workers are wary. So when prison guards in Alberta walk off the job, as they did this week, citing dangerous working conditions, it’s hard not to sympathize with them. It’s not as if they’re walking out for the fun of it. That’s a tough enough job without throwing them into a new remand centre that leaves them vulnerable to harm. It’s timely that this should become an issue just as workers across Canada are remembering their brethren who went to work in unsafe conditions and paid dearly for it. And while you’re remembering this area’s dead and injured, spare a thought for the plight of many workers in Third World countries, like the hundreds in Bangladesh who died at their machines making cheap clothing for rich western companies and their customers who are you and I. Such “carnage in the workplace� will continue if those responsible are not judged in both the court of law and the court of public opinion.

LETTER

Quarry expansion not worth the risk says concerned McNab-Braeside resident To the Editor: A great number of Arnprior and area residents are very concerned about the proposed Braeside asphalt plant and quarry expansion, and you can count me among them. I certainly haven’t seen such a degree of concern and opposition about any development proposal in the more than two decades that I have lived in McNab Township. It seems that every week, and for many months now, there have been letters to the Chronicle-Guide voicing strong objection to the development. Knowledgeable people have pointed out that the fractured limestone bedrock at the site raises serious issues about potential impacts on groundwater. One letter writer suggested that hundreds of local wells could be affected. In fact, if spills or accidents were to occur in a fractured limestone area such as this, it is likely not possible to predict where or how far polluted water might travel or how many wells could be at risk (a few? dozens? hundreds? more?). An effective post-spill clean-up may be impossible. How would you know if your well water did in fact become contaminated? Public Health Unit testing only covers bacteriological contamination. If you want to find out about chemical contamination, you must find a private testing lab. If you then find contamination, good luck fixing it. A bottle of bleach poured down the well certainly won’t solve that problem.

Also, you can likely forget about compensation; once chemical pollution reaches your well it will be difficult to prove where it came from, and who might be to blame. Is this all worth the risk? In my opinion it’s much better to plan development properly, in the right location where risks are minimized beforehand. Another recent letter writer pointed out that the temporary asphalt plant had charges and fines against it. The writer asked the very reasonable question whether the site is suitable for any kind of asphalt plant, temporary or permanent. Still another writer raised serious concerns about air pollution and

noise from the temporary plant, and the writer predicted an even greater impact from the proposed permanent plant. Concerns have also been raised about the rare alvar habitat in the area. This is an unusual and rather fragile habitat that is disappearing in many areas. So it’s important to protect such an area whenever possible. Most likely the Township Council understands that this proposed development on that site has many more negatives than positives. Let’s hope they do the right thing and disallow the application.

Asphalt plant doesn’t fit with rural township lifestyle To the editor: An open letter to Mayor Mary Campbell and members of the McNab-Braeside Township Council As a homeowner, resident and taxpayer living in the Township of McNab-Braeside, we are writing concerning the application by Miller Paving Limited to establish an asphalt plant (either temporary or permanent) in the current ‘Miller Pit’ located off of Usborne and proposed Zoning By-Law and Official Plan Amendment under consideration by Council. At the outset, we would like to express that we are against any proposed changes to either the Zoning By-Law or Official Plan that would allow the establishment of an asphalt plant at this location. We relocated to McNabBraeside in 1999 predicated on living a rural lifestyle that the Township offered. Even the Township’s own website, under the section: Living in McNab-Braeside, states: “Embracing a rural life-style McNab-Braeside is intrinsically dependent on our natural infrastructure and as such, committed to protecting and living in harmony with our environment. Maintaining our rural life style, vales and sense of community is a priority.” It is clear in our mind that the Township has a responsibility, both fiduciary and moral, to respect and ensure that those stated values do not detract from these basic principles. This issue is fraught

with uncertainty and cause for concern by so many residents in our community and, therefore, council should support its constituents by not amending the zoning or Official plan. We have reviewed the application from Miller Paving Limited and the comments from the various consultants engaged by the Township to critique the assertions contained in the application. In the end, it is difficult, if not impossible for a typical homeowner to assess the bottom line without having expertise in the areas addressed. Whether it is groundwater, noise, traffic, blasting or other issues, it comes down to whether a homeowner and resident in the Township can believe the intentions and mitigating measures/risks of the applicant. The debate and discussion over this application and the concerns of residents should not come down to a matter of whether the application is ‘technically’ correct. This is where we believe that the Township has the responsibility to uphold the basic principles for the ratepayers and as such, not to enter into areas of uncertainty. The negative effects of this application will be felt by the current and future residents of McNab-Braeside long after this council has moved on. It is critical that the current council establish a legacy that maintains the basic premise about living in our beautiful Town-

ship – something that is not new to this Council. Lastly, we understand that if the Township does not grant this application and the required re-zoning of those lands, it is likely that the applicant will appeal the matter before the Ontario Municipal Board (OMB). This will likely be costly for the Township to put forward its case. However, this is a responsibility that falls upon Council and we believe this would be a reasonable cost that the Township would have to absorb to supports its citizens. However, if Council chooses to grant the application and to amend the zoning of the lands and the Official Plan to allow for the establishment of an asphalt plant, appealing the application, etc. before the OMB will fall to the residents of our community. To us, this is just simply not acceptable. Residents of a community rely on its elected officials to act for and on behalf of its constituents, especially on difficult issues. Based on our review of this matter, we find no redeeming factor that would see either the residents or the council supporting the application. We, like many others in the Township, do not support the application or the proposed rezoning and amendment to the Official Plan.

To the Editor: The frustration in Tom Peckett’s letter (ChronicleGuide, April 11) is very understandable. To date, the process dealing with the Miller applications for a permanent asphalt plant and a change in zoning for a much larger quarry has taken a tediously long time. McNab-Braeside council is hardly to blame for this. Council is legally bound to consider all the relevant information before coming to a decision on both applications. At the time of Mr. Peckett’s letter, Miller’s Planning and Justification Report had not been received by the township’s Planning and Advi-

sory Committee. In addition, Council must consider the as yet not submitted Planning Report by Bruce Howarth, Renfrew County’s senior planner, and all written and oral submissions from the public, including those to be made at the public meeting(s). This is a daunting task and carries with it a heavy responsibility. They deserve our appreciation and where possible our help in coming to a decision. One such opportunity is at the public meeting(s) at our Lady of Perpetual Help, Braeside on May 6 (7 and 9, if necessary) from 6-10 p.m.; check the McNab-Braeside website. Show up, address council, support those who speak, or

submit something in writing to give members of council the benefit of your thoughts and to let them know how much their decisions mean to you. Our participation is important to help council make informed decisions which may have long-term consequences for our township. When addressing council, consider that its members are from among us; give them the same respect you expect for yourself. Now is the time for us to stand up and help our council make the right decisions. Jan Selles McNab-Braeside

Quarry industrialization not appropriate for the area To the Editor: So finally we can view the Miller Industrial expansion plan for the Braeside Quarry on the McNab-Braeside website. You can find it under the “Quarry Expansion” link; it is titled “Justification Planning Report March 2013.” The report spells out just what Miller is planning for the Braeside Quarry. It was to be available in January. If you are just aware of it by this letter, you have four days to digest all of its content. Not an easy task with a lot of industry jargon and acronyms. Nice time crunch to get through all of this document! Because on May 6, 7 and 8, people will learn more about the “Justification Report” from Miller and hear reports from independent or third-party professionals as to what impacts this industrial expansion of the quarry

Council needs support to make right decision

Write on: we love letters to the editor

will have. Listen carefully to these studies and Miller’s explanations, as there will be some serious cross-examination by local residents and third-party professionals who have been doing a lot of research on their own to ensure our safety. Now, it is clear that Miller is using the language of the Province and the Provincial Policy Statement to strongarm council into the fact that the Province needs its aggregate and there is very little anyone can do to restrict it. But we need to make it clear that the industrial expansion Official Plan amendment and re-zoning does not have to happen to allow for asphalt plants and concrete plants. The government can have its rock, but our community wants its fresh air and clean water! See SPEAK, Page 10

Pageant promotes charities, inner beauty To the Editor: My reaction to the web poll in the Chronicle-Guide about the Miss Teen Ontario East Pageant a couple of weeks ago caught me off guard. One reason is because I myself was an ambassador for the Eastern Ontario Region and for Renfrew. To see a poll ask the question is the Miss Teen Ontario East Pageant still relevant to our town is a question that should not even be up for discussion. There are many other issues that are happening that are more important to ask the opinion of others on. The newspaper should put in more thought on what questions they want to ask in their polls. They could have asked a question about the Miss Teen Ontario East organization in a positive manner. The question asked was interpreted as a negative question with only one response being positive, followed by

three negative options to respond. There was no need to bring down an organization that has many positive aspects to young females across the Ottawa Valley and to childhood cancer. My year as Miss Teen Ontario East was one I will never forget and one I truly grew from as an individual. Without my year I would not have the confidence and would not have received the countless volunteer opportunities I was given. It was truly a gift. The responses such as the pageant should be about beauty and forgetting about the other talents left me broken-hearted. Our society is constantly making teenagers self-confidence diminish because we are comparing our bodies and beauty to those who we feel are more beautiful. Miss Teen Ontario East looks for the inner beauty that society sometimes misses and which truly is more important.

Another option that received votes was that some responders felt there was no need to have Miss Teen Ontario East because it was a thing of the past. In my opinion providing volunteer opportunities and raising money while promoting childhood cancer is nothing that should be kept in the past. We should continue to be thriving to make a difference and awareness for the children living with childhood cancer. Before this topic is brought up again, I think Renfrew and area should be more informed about what the Miss Teen Ontario East Pageant goal and objectives are before affecting their image.

Push MPPs to pass consumer protection act To the editor: I read with interest John Carterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s piece â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Beware water heater sales pitch, resident warnsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; (Chronicle-Guide, April 25). The Homeowner Protection Centre (HPC) launched a new website on Thursday, April 18 with the purpose of giving Ontario consumers a much needed voice and to encourage government to enact changes that offer protection from door-to-door water heater sales. The site www.waterheaterdoortodoor. com offers tips on consumer rights when it comes to door-to-door salespeople.

It also has a section for Ontario consumers to share their stories about unethical tactics used by door-to-door salespeople. HPC is pleased that Bill 55, Stronger Protection for Ontario Consumers Act, was introduced on Thursday, April 17. Now, Ontario consumers need to encourage all three political parties to pass Bill 55 quickly. Ontario consumers may do this by visiting the site and sending a letter to their local MPP to ask them to pass Bill 55 quickly. If it isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t passed soon there is concern that these salespeople will step up their tactics to sign up as many people as possible

before the Bill 55 is passed. This is especially disconcerting given that these salespeople often focus on vulnerable citizens, such as seniors. These new rules help to maintain a fair, safe and informed marketplace. It is essential that the citizens of Ontario feel that they can open their door without being pressured to make a large financial commitment without all the facts or the necessary time to make an informed decision. Michael Lio, Executive Director Homeowner Protection Centre.

Council can turn down the Class III industrial expansion; they just have a harder time saying no to the expansion of the quarry for aggregate.

Besides, do you really want your community bookended with â&#x20AC;&#x153;Arnpriorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s landfill site,â&#x20AC;? which has contaminated ground water far below it, with a Class III industrial complex high over the river near the Arnprior Golf Course at the other end of the community? There is no Class higher than a Class III. (It is the dirtiest and noisiest of all three.) I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really important to understand

that Miller has to truck in the sand as well as crushed stone (various asphalt needs different stone) to this quarry. Does this make sense then to have it in this location? Other locations Miller operates have been suggested for the industrial manufacturing part of their operation, but they are seeking the Class III for this sensitive location. I know a lot of you think this is a NIMBY situation, but really consider how much you enjoy the country roads around here and the view of the river. Consider whether you want the constant smell of tar while you are golfing and a view of a smoke stack spewing clouds of smoke when youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re boating on the river.

The Miller-paid-for studies say it wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t happen, but does anyone remember the smell of the pulp and paper plant in Quebec? I do, and all it takes is a change in wind direction to make you realize that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all of our concern. Please show up on May 6, 7 and 8 to advise council that the industrialization of the quarry does not fit with our plans for rural living. The meeting will be 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. at Her Lady of Perpetual Help Church, Braeside. Patrick McIntyre Sand Point R0011979160

EMC lifestyle - When one thinks of parental care in animals, birds come to mind. In 95 per cent of all species, both parents raise the young. Male warblers feed their mates while they incubate, then later help stuff food into little hungry mouths. Other songbirds such as American Robins share incubation duties as well as help feed Michael Runtz the young. Natureâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Way Parental care in mammals is very different. The males of most species vanish after mating, leaving females to fend for themselves and, later, their babies. Moose (currently topical because one has taken up residence near Pakenham) mate in the fall, and eight months later the pregnant females seek out islands and peninsulas on which to give birth. But Eastern Wolves, Coyotes, and Red Foxes break the mammalian parental care rule by having males remain with their mates to help raise pups. Wolves do so in social groups known as packs while Coyotes and Red Foxes operate as pairs. Recently, female Red Foxes have vanished underground where they currently are either giving birth or nursing newborn pups. Males have become more visible because they are busily hunting for their mates. We have a pair denning somewhere on our property and the male makes regular morning appearances in our backyard. In fact, a moment ago he came running down the granite slope to chase birds and squirrels eating seeds beneath the feeders. Despite valiant efforts, he left empty-mouthed.

County to seek Ottawa River national heritage status one more time Steve Newman Steve.newman@metroland.com

R0012062234

EMC news - Admaston-Bromley Mayor Raye-Anne Briscoe remains perplexed that the Ottawa River remains without national river heritage status. She and other elected county officials have

maintained for the best part of a decade that the river, which runs the entire east boundary of Renfrew County, should bear that status. The designation was expected to be bestowed in 2008 after the recommendation was signed off by the provincial natural resources minister and federal environmental minister. But the last link in the process was never made

― the signature of local Conservative MP Cheryl Gallant. She has long maintained the status would restrict property owners’ rights, even though no evidence has been provided in this regard. Now, Gallant’s signature would be required as well as that of Peter Kent, the national environment minister. Gallant and others resisting the heritage status have argued that property owners on the river would be altered by the designation. Not so, according to research done by the county’s own department of development and property. No so, says the Canadian Heritage Rivers System, which says no legislation is created when a river is designated. Thirty-seven rivers have national heritage

status, while another five have been nominated. The Canadian Heritage Rivers System, which was established in 1984, is a national river conservation program that operates within the structure of Parks Canada. Largely through the efforts of former local Liberal MP Len Hopkins, a group of volunteers did extensive documentation to prepare for the designation of the Ottawa River a few years ago, but unsuccessfully. However, the county is appealing to Prime Minister Stephen Harper this month, and hence to MP Gallant, to support the designation. The timing couldn’t be better, suggests Briscoe, because this June the county will host 400thanniversary celebrations of explorer Samuel de Champlain’s travels along the iconic waterway.

MP to introduce heritage river motion

On Now at The Brick! For more details go instore or online @thebrick.com.

EMC news –The area’s only NDP MP has promised to introduce a motion in the House of Commons calling on Parliament to designate the Ottawa River a Heritage River. Standing on the banks of the Ottawa River last week, Ottawa Centre MP Paul Dewar and Ecology Ottawa executive director Graham Saul announced the intention to introduce a motion that would protect the river and its tributaries. “The Ottawa River flows right behind Parliament – it’s

a testament to its importance. So why isn’t it given special designation and protection?” asked Dewar. “This motion will give the Ottawa River the protection it deserves, ensuring its enjoyment for years to come.” The Ottawa River is not one of Canada’s 37 designated Heritage Rivers despite many calls for its inclusion. Dewar is calling for this protection, as well as protection for its tributaries under the Navigable Waters Protection Act, and a federal commitment to

funding a full one-third of the Ottawa River Action Plan. “The Ottawa River helps define this great city,” said Saul. “We want to swim in the river, fish in it, and restore and protect it, and we want a strong partner in the federal government. This is Canada’s river.” Dewar’s motion calls on the government to designate the Ottawa River a Heritage River, working in consultation with provincial governments, municipalities, community groups and First Nations.

Labour decries lack of progress in deterring workplace deaths John Carter John.carter@metroland.com

EMC news – Mary Wright was back at O’Brien Park Sunday, just as she has been on every April 28 for the past 12 years. On the national Day of Mourning for workers killed and injured on the job, Wright laid flowers in memory of her son, Jamie, who was electrocuted in 2001 while working on a house near White Lake. About 15 people attended the ceremony, organized by the Renfrew and District Labour Council, at the Day of Mourning monument off the end of the Swinging Bridge in Renfrew. Labour council president Sue McSheffrey, who emceed the ceremony, noted that Wright’s death provided the impetus for creating a monument in Renfrew to ensure those workers who died or were injured on the job would not be forgotten. The Labour council’s member unions joined together in 2002 to provide the special stone nestled under a pine tree in the park along the Bonnechere River. “I know many of you here today have had to deal with the loss of a loved one, friend or colleague,” she told those assembled. “We mourn with you, and we want you to know we will not let those lost lives be in vain.” McSheffrey said people should be “furious” that in 2011 (the last year statistics are available), 919 workers died in workplace incidents in Canada, with Ontario leading the way with 306. There were no deaths on the job in Prince Edward Island, “so it (elimination of workplace deaths) can happen,” she said. She said that people might be surprised at some of the threats facing workers in occupations not normally perceived to be dangerous.

Health workers face a variety of hazards, both in institutions and on homecare assignments, and teachers in old schools can be vulnerable to exposure to asbestos or poor air quality, she added. Unions are leading the way in calling attention to unsafe working conditions, she said, noting that the unionized prison guards in Alberta are refusing to work under what they consider dangerous conditions. In 1984 when the Canadian Labour Congress initiated April 28 as the Day of Mourning, it hoped that bringing national attention to the “carnage in our workplaces” would be a major factor in having governments and employers take action to put an end to the “outrageous numbers” of deaths and workplace injuries. However, 29 years later, little has changed, so labour councils have embarked on a campaign to have employers charged if negligent, she said. McSheffrey pointed out legislation has been passed by various levels of government and many employers have health and safety accident prevention policies on the books. All workplace accidents and illnesses are preventable, she maintained. “They should not happen.” Strong provisions in laws or collective agreements or workplace policies, are only as effective as the commitment of those who are tasked to enforce or comply with them, she said, adding “laws must be enforced.” McSheffrey pointed out that Canada’s Criminal Code includes provisions that allow the criminal prosecution of those whose negligence caused workplace deaths. “It must be used to send a strong signal to negligent employers who willfully place their workers in

She said the Renfrew and District Labour Council agrees with the contention of the Canadian Labour Congress that when a worker is killed or injured on the job the workplace must

be treated as a potential crime scene. “How else can we prosecute negligent employers if evidence in that workplace is not collected to be able to prosecute those responsible for the accident?” she asked. In an effort to have the justice system take such incidents more seriously, the Renfrew and District Labour Council will be making appointments to talk to local police and Crown prosecutors to explain the criminal negligence provisions in the Criminal Code. “We’ll be providing them with the CLC Guide ‘Death and Injury at Work: A Criminal Code Offense’ so that we can ensure proper investigations are conducted to gather the evidence in the event of a criminal prosecution,” said McSheffrey “Police and prosecutors need to have a better understanding of the changes to the criminal code so they can lay charges when deaths occur in the workplace. Those responsible when a fatality takes place in the workplace must be held accountable by the law.” A message has to be sent by the courts and society that criminal negligence causing workplace deaths is totally unacceptable, and will be prosecuted, she added. “No worker should wake up in the morning wondering if ‘today is the day I die at work’. “A safe and healthy workplace is not a sweet deal. It’s a right for every worker.” Joining Wright in laying wreathes or flowers at the Renfrew monument were Pat Lafont on behalf of United Steelworkers Local 4820 at Haley Industries, Sandi Heins and Ben Treidlinger of OPSEU Local 449, and Doug Brooks on behalf of the Labour council. The Labour Council also held a ceremony in Pembroke later in the day.

Fundraiser helps family deal with loss Sherry Haaima Sherry.haaima@metroland.com

EMC news – For the third year in a row an Arnprior family is remembering their daughter in a special way that benefits the community. “We want her death to not be in vain,” said Samantha Lyman of Arnprior, whose 18-year-old daughter Katrina (Kay) died in a car crash on May 20, 2010. The funds raised go towards two scholarships for students at Arnprior District High School. “Through scholarships we can better a life,” said Lyman. Kay was driving a car southbound along County Road 29 on her way to work at the Rexall pharmacy in Almonte. Police say she hit the shoulder, overcorrected and lost control of the vehicle, which was then struck by an oncoming pick-up truck. Three people in the truck were injured, while Lyman was pronounced dead at the scene. There has been some speculation about whether Lyman may have been distracted by her cell phone. There was a failed Facebook upload, but it’s unclear if that was being done at the time of the crash. Lyman wholeheartedly supports the recent crackdown on distracted driving. A

friend recently heard Kay’s story on the news in a plea to drivers to not drive while distracted. “I just hope what happened to Kay that people look at different things in a different light and if we can save one life we’re happy,” said Lyman. Raising funds for the scholarships in Kay’s name has helped get them through the past few years without her. “For us as a family, working so hard to prepare for some sort of event or fundraiser helps us get through,” she said. To win the scholarship students must complete an essay. The topics have varied and this year the focus is on family. Choosing the recipients itself becomes a family affair with everyone, including Kay’s brothers Ross and Cody Smith, coming together to choose the winners. “They do the essay, we get them all and as a family we go over each and every one of them,” said Lyman. The first year the family hosted a dinner and dance and last year a bake/craft sale. Each event raised more than $2,000. MAY 11 SALE

It was a tough time already for the family, having moved here after both parents and sister passed. “It was hard for us because we’re not used to people helping us,” she said.

John YAKABUSKI MPP

www.johnyakabuski.com Last Tuesday, April 23rd, there was excitement in the air as Canada’s Governor General, his Excellency the Right Honourable David Johnston, visited us in the Valley. His visit began at Algonquin College where he made a presentation of the Governor General’s Caring Canadian Award to an extraordinary volunteer, Mike Wright. I had the opportunity to lead the gathering in the singing of our national anthem. I have said many times that it is always an honour to sing our national anthem. That honour was made even more special by the attendance of his Excellency. His Excellency then made a number of stops in Pembroke before heading back to Ottawa. Unfortunately I could not join him for the rest of his day as I had been requested to attend a meeting in Whitney, along with the Minister of Community Safety, Madeleine Meilleur. We met with the Community Control Group to discuss the dangerously high water levels that had been experienced in the previous few days. Both the Minister and I were very impressed with the coordinated effort and planning that the Township had in place, in cooperation with the Ministry of Natural Resources and Ontario Power Generation. Water: we seem to either have too much of it, or not enough. But whenever it falls out of the normal ranges, it is certainly a problem. While at the time of writing this column, Thursday April 25th, the levels at Galeairy Lake have become manageable, there is still significant concern at Kamaniskeg Lake and downstream stretches of the Madawaska River. We continue to converse daily with government officials at all levels who are closely monitoring the situation. In spite of the best efforts of all involved, we are hoping and praying that Mother Nature cooperates as well. Down in the Legislature, the government announced the other day that they would be tabling their budget for 2013/14 on May 2nd. It would appear that they are preparing to spend a lot of your money to ensure that the NDP support this budget. After the tabling of the budget, the debate will begin. A vote on the Budget motion should come no later than May 30th, at which time it will be determined whether we’re likely to have a spring election or not. What Ontario needs now is a government that is strong enough to bring forward a budget that will actually tackle the jobs and debt crisis that we’re facing in Ontario. The longer we ignore this reality, the larger Ontario’s debt becomes. Tim Hudak and the PC caucus also signaled last week that we would be tabling a “Want of Confidence motion” regarding the government’s abject failure in the handling of the Mississauga and Oakville gas plant cancellations. Having sat on the committee looking into this scandal for the past several weeks, I am appalled at the contradictory testimony put forward by witness after witness trying to protect their masters in the Liberal party. In spite of Kathleen Wynne’s public statements to cooperate fully with the work of the committee, she and the government have done no such thing.

It’s clear that their intentions are to drag this on as long as possible, hoping that the public forgets about it. On April 15th, Jim McCarter the Auditor General released his report on Mississauga indicating that the true cost of the cancellation would be $275 million vs. the $190 million that the government had pledged was the total. The government’s reaction to this was to basically shrug their shoulders, as if to say “oh well, it’s no big deal”. After all $275 million dollars to buy a few Liberal seats, to them would be seen as a good investment. The problem is it’s your money. We hope the government allows an opportunity to debate this Want of Confidence motion, and that the New Democrats will support it, making it very clear to this government that they can avoid accountability no longer. 0502.R0012067653 Arnprior Chronicle-Guide EMC - Thursday, May 2, 2013 15

Choirs to provide afternoon of entertainment in Arnprior EMC entertainment – Sing into spring this season with an exciting choral concert that will celebrate the classic music of Mozart, Handel and Schubert. The Arnprior Community Choir will join forces with the Nepean Choir to present ‘Double, Double! Two Choirs in Two Concerts’ this Sunday, May 5. At 3 p.m. at Grace-St. Andrew’s United Church, more than 60 singers will lift their voices to-

gether in song. The choirs have been rehearsing both separately and together since January, and all members have become good friends in the process. Making music with others is uplifting, challenging and very rewarding and the Arnprior audience will be able to appreciate the blend, beautiful harmonies and full choral sound of this mass ensemble. Both choirs will be fea-

the audience with a varied selection of choral music. The Arnprior Community Choir will feature the ladies of the group singing a stunning Hebrew song of peace as well as Louise van den Berg on flute. The choir will finish with a light selection of ‘I’d Like to Teach the World to Sing’. The concert will also feature two local musicians that will make a stunning finish to this choral afternoon. Mike

tured in ‘Te Deum’ by Mozart and ‘Zadok the Priest’ by G.F Handel. These two sparkling and energetic pieces will be contrasted by the beautifully lyrical ‘The Lord Is My Shepherd’ by Franz Schubert. Music directors Denise Hawkins and Lisa Webber will alternate conducting the mass choir. The Nepean and Arnprior choirs will also be featured in their own sets providing

EMC news - An Ottawa company will rehabilitate Centennial Lake Bridge in Greater Madawaska Township, but take two working seasons to do it. Dalcon Enterprises will do the scheduled 47week project on Centennial Lake Bridge over two years. The work will likely start early this summer, said Greater Madawaska Mayor Peter Emon. The two-lane bridge, which is more than 50 years old, will be widened from 7.5 to 8.5 metres, in addition to having the deck replaced and the wall reconstructed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The bridge is near the end of its life cycle, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still safe,â&#x20AC;? says Emon. Dalconâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s winning tender was $2.28 million, plus HST, compared to the next lowest bid of $2.55 million by Looby Builders of Dublin, Ont. Twenty-one tenders were requested, but only eight companies submitted bids. The countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 10-year capital works plan included $3 million for the Centennial Lake Bridge project.

can lead to heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, arthritis, reduced life span (3-5 years) and other health complications. Obesity is defined as 30 per cent above normal weight. Carrying even an extra five per cent of body weight will cause increased strain on muscles, tendons, ligaments, and joints. Arthritis forms in the joints causing pain, which decreases mobility, which decreases calories burned, which leads to more weight gain. Blood sugar is harder to regulate with increased weight and many pets become diabetic due to obesity, just like people. Most pets require insulin injections once or twice daily once they become diabetic. No one wants to have to deal with that. For example, a study by the International Journal of Applied Veterinary Medicine shows that if you feed a small dog one ounce of cheese, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the same as you eating one and a half hamburgers or one and a half chocolate bars. For a cat, that same ounce of cheese equals three and a half hamburgers for you. Think of it this way, if Fido gained eight pounds that would be equal to you gaining 30 pounds. According to the APOP (The Association for Pet Obesity Prevention) a 90-pound Labrador Retriever is comparable to a 186-pound, 5â&#x20AC;&#x2122;4â&#x20AC;? female and a 15-pound cat is comparable to a 254-pound, 5â&#x20AC;&#x2122;9â&#x20AC;&#x2122; male. The problem is simple; excessive caloric in-

take, too many treats and an inactive lifestyle all contribute to pet obesity. Besides reducing food intake, the APOP recommends 30 to 60 minutes of active play, or two to three miles of walking for larger breeds of dogs such as Labradors or German Shepherds. Smaller breeds should have 15 to 30 minutes of play. Cats can benefit from short five to 15-minutes bursts of activity like chasing toys. The other problem is merchandising. Manufacturers of pet food rate the cups per pound/ per feeding high. Simply put, the more you feed your pet the faster you will go through a bag, the more you will purchase pet food and the more the manufacturer will profit. For feeding instructions (based on breed, size, and activity level), speak to your veterinarian. Rule of thumb, if you cannot feel your petâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ribs and they do not have a natural waistline then they are perhaps overweight. As with human weight loss, it would be best to consult with your veterinarian before making any changes to ones diet or exercise routine. IN MEMORIAM

EMC news - The County of Renfrewâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s two long-term care homes remain without a full-time nurse practitioner, but maybe not for much longer. Bonnechere Manor in Renfrew and Miramichi Lodge in Pembroke have each had that position ďŹ lled for 13 years, but former full-time nurse practitioner Jean Benton, at her choice, is now working only part-time. Therefore, the search continues for her successor. Bentonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s part-time contract was scheduled to end April 22, but she has agreed to extend that, if necessary, to the end of De-

cember 2013. The two homes had hired a new nurse practitioner, but the candidate declined the position because of extenuating circumstances. The new nurse practitioner will split his or her time between Bonnechere Manor and Miramichi Lodge. Meanwhile, another candidate is scheduled to visit the two facilities in early May before deciding whether to take the job. If he does not, other candidates are already available to talk to. The selection committee includes Bonnechere Manor administrator Shayne Hoelke and Miramichi Lodge administrator Shelley Sheedy.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re feeling fairly positive about being able to recruit a full-time nurse practitioner,â&#x20AC;? said Sheedy, who says the position is critical for keeping residents in the two homes and out of the nearby Pembroke or Renfrew hospital. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s absolutely critical for our physicians, because they are overloaded with their ofďŹ ce practices and being on-call and their responsibilities at the hospital. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Both our residents, staff and certainly the physician-group have come to rely on the value of a nurse practitioner in longterm care.â&#x20AC;? If the present candidate accepts the position, the new nurse practitioner could be on the job by June.

Tournament honours heritage, McNab Scottish team maybe? Steve Newman Steve.newman@metroland.com

EMC news - David Shulist was born in Renfrew more than 61 years ago, but his deepest ancestral roots can be found in Poland’s province of Kashubia, formerly part of the Prussian Empire. The province also represents the Nation of Kashubia, says the Wilno resident, who stood during the April 24 meeting of Renfrew County council to talk about the growing national and international profile of the Opeongo Heritage Cup hockey tournament. He also brought along the cup, which the Kashubian Griffins captured in late March. Played out of the Barry’s Bay arena, the tournament features distinctly different cultural teams, including three-time men’s champion Algonquin Thunderbirds, triple titlist Irish Shamrocks and the former champion German Black Eagles. Shulist brought the cup so a photo could be taken with four people who have strong links to Kashubian culture and county council. He said the photo would be sent to Kartuzy Mayor Miroslawa Lehman in the Polish province of Kashubia. In fact, Shulist hopes to deliver the photo when he makes a trip to Poland in June. The four Kashubs included Shulist and Rose Gruntz, the county’s executive assistant, whose Kashubian maiden name is Utronkie. She grew up in the Killaoe area but now lives in Petawawa. The other two were Renfrew Reeve Audrey Green, the great granddaughter of Adam Prince, the Kashub who was the first postmaster of

Wilno in 1885, and Janice Visneskie, the Killaloe, Hagarty and Richards mayor whose great-grandparents were from Kashubia. Kashubia (or Kaszebe) is also the home of the largest concentration of Kashubs in the world. Shulist estimates Kashubia’s population at 500,000, of which about threequarters are Kashubs. For several years, Shulist has been an enthusiastic promoter of Wilno as Canada’s first Kashubian settlement in 1858. He was also the founder and first president of the Wilno Heritage Society, while he continues to organize the eight-year-old Opeongo Heritage Cup. The tournament’s name comes from Opeongo Road, which the Irish, Kashubian and German settlers travelled to reach this area. The Algonquins travelled along the waterways. The tournament, which plays to packed stands, is in-

tended to promote the area’s distinct cultures. The tournament’s other winners this year were the German Black Eagles of the women’s division and Irish Shamrocks in the gentlemen’s division. “Canada is a multi-cultural nation, and we’re pretty proud to be Canadian, but we’re also proud of our cultural roots. Because we’re so intertwined, doing a tournament like this has been very easy,” said Shulist. “Every year there’s going to be somebody with bragging rights, but it’s more about everyone embracing each other.” Reeve Green said she was pleased to have a personal tie to the tournament. “I think it’s great because it’s not just Polish or Kashubian, but it brings other cultures together. Maybe McNab-Braeside and their Scottish culture could get involved, too.”

Cancer survivor gives back at Ride the Rideau By Tracey Tong

Bruce Norman, fourth from right, is a member of PCL’s Blazing Saddles. The team is back for Ride the Rideau 2013. young daughters, Amelia and Pippa. He remembered being relieved that he had already started his family. “I was only 30, and ready to conquer the world. This was out of the blue.”

The diagnosis was a shock for Norman. There was no family history of cancer, he was young, and didn’t have any of the symptoms associated with Hodgkins Lymphoma – night sweats, fatigue or itchy skin.

The family had been planning to attend a family reunion in England. The trip was cancelled so that Norman, a PCL project manager could start his treatment – three straight weeks of radiation and six months of chemotherapy.

annual Ride the Rideau on Saturday, September 7. He will be riding as a team member of PCL’s Blazing Saddles for the third year. Organized by The Ottawa Hospital Foundation, Ride the Rideau has raised a total of $4.4 million in three years in support of cancer research at The Ottawa Hospital. New this year is a 50 km option in addition to the flagship 100 km option.

Fitness centre helps student excel in track Janessa Russett

EMC sports - The commitment of a first-year student at Arnprior District High School has paid off tremendously. Anne-Marie McNab is a 15-year-old track and field athlete attending high school in Arnprior. She has had an interest in track and field since a young age, racking up experience as early as 11 years old. McNab has been keeping up her grades while training to minimize times in her races. She aspires to run in EOSSA and advance to OFSAA, the Ontario championships, in personal short distance running events, hurdles and with the 4x100 relay team. McNab began her journey with Ultimate Fitness (UF) in January. During the teachersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; work-to-rule in secondary schools, the Ultimate Fitness Arnprior location hosted an after-school student training program. â&#x20AC;&#x153;While UF Arnprior ran the ADHS After-School Athletes program, Anne-Marie was the only consistent member week after week,â&#x20AC;? said co-owner Sarah Leighton. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When training athletes, consistency and the willingness to work hard are what delivers results. She had both, which was apparent right away.â&#x20AC;? In light of McNabâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard work and commitment, owners Paul Vaillancourt and Leighton decided to sponsor her. They will be overseeing her personal training, which will improve her physical preparedness and allow her to excel in a track career. Leighton explains that her long-term goal is to get McNab stronger, and in turn faster, after incorporating strength training into her

track routine. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are hoping that she will set the mark for other students, so that it is well-known amongst her peers and coaches that strength training is a huge asset for all athletes, and also that Ultimate Fitness is the best option for athletic training in this area,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is very clear that McNab possesses the traits to be successful. She is very focused on achieving great things,â&#x20AC;? added Leighton. â&#x20AC;&#x153;All great athletes must be willing to sacrifice social events and other interests for the benefit of the given sport. Not all athletes want to hit the gym after track practice.â&#x20AC;? In Grade 8, McNab ran a 200-metre race in a time of 28.0 seconds, and a 100-metre at 13.7 seconds. With help for Vaillancourt and Leighton in the weight room, she hopes to shave time off those events. The sponsorship of McNab will not only benefit her, but Ultimate Fitness as well. â&#x20AC;&#x153;With Anne-Marie excelling in her sport, we feel that she will be a great ambassador to publicize the highly effective programs that we offer at Ultimate Fitness,â&#x20AC;? said Leighton. â&#x20AC;&#x153;With her being in Grade 9, it gives us at least four years to help turn her into a sprinting force to be reckoned with.â&#x20AC;? Leighton concludes that she and Vaillancourt are â&#x20AC;&#x153;really excited to work with AnneMarie and help her achieve her goals.â&#x20AC;? Any athletes interested in training groups at Ultimate Fitness can find out more by calling 613-623-9726. The gym is located beside the Nick Smith Centre at 53 James St., Unit 4.

Fun, rewarding experience for local HFH volunteer Sherry Haaima Sherry.haaima@metroland.com

EMC lifestyle – When Sean Mulvihill of Arnprior had the opportunity to volunteer for 10 days with Habitat for Humanity, he grabbed the opportunity and ran with it. “It was a really great experience,” said Mulvihill. “It’s a good feeling knowing you’re helping people.” Not only did the former Canadian Pacific Rail conductor travel to the small fishing village of Pochomil, Nicaragua, and help to build a home for a family much in need, he blogged about the experience, too. Habitat for Humanity believes that every man, woman and child should have a decent, safe and affordable place to live. The organization builds and repairs houses all over the world, using volunteer labor and donations. Partner families purchase these houses through no-profit, no-interest mortgage loans or innovative financing methods. Nicaragua is the second poorest country in Latin America after Haiti. The family’s living conditions included an unhealthy, primitive stove and shack-like structure. Mulvihill joined a group of 16 volunteers who worked together to construct a solid, sturdy family home in the village, which lies close to the Pacific Ocean. The team was there for 10 days in March, piling into

Mulvihill has experience in construction and currently works in property management. He has knowledge in the trades with some experience plumbing and doing electrical work, so his skills were put to good use in Pochomil. There was no shortage of poverty in Nicaragua, said Mulvihill and evidence of the destruction of the last big earthquake to hit the area. “When the earthquake hit,

everything just collapsed,” said Mulvihill. The home the volunteers constructed was designed with the extreme weather and conditions in mind, said Mulvihill. The team worked seven days a week for 12 hours a day. MANY HANDS, NOT-SO-LIGHT WORK

“We did everything by hand. I can honestly say I was wishing for even a primitive cement mixer,” he said.

Days began with breakfast at 7 a.m. “Lots of beans, lots of rice,” said Mulvihill. It was just before breakfast each day that he would find a cool, quiet place to sit down and chronicle his daily experiences and activities. He shared the daily journals with family, friends and sponsors. A special memory of the journey was a visit to an area school and impromptu game of soccer with the students. “It was so much fun,” he said. Returning to their hotel each day, the first order of

business for many of the volunteers was a quick dip in the ocean to rinse the dust and sweat from their tired bodies. Absolutely among the highlights for Mulvihill are the people he met along the way. The family for whom the home was built was overwhelmingly grateful. It was an emotional experience, said Mulvihill. The last day of the build there was a little celebration, a memory that will stick with Mulvihill. See VOLUNTEER Page 33

Forester wins Ontario award Earn Extra Money!

EMC news - Renfrew County Forester Lacey Rose has been awarded the prestigious Fernow Award. She received the award at the annual meeting of the Ontario Professional Foresters Association (OPFA) in Ottawa on April 11. The award is named in honour of the first Dean of Forestry in Canada, B.E. Fernow, who started the 100-plus year forestry tradition at the University of Toronto. The award is presented annually to a member, registered in the last 10 years, who has made notable contributions to either the Ontario Professional Foresters Association itself or to forestry in Ontario. Rose has contributed in a big way to the practice of professional forestry, and has particularly shone in her current position at Renfrew County. Among many of her accomplishments has been the creation of OttawaValleyWood. com, the very successful local

Two Fernow Awards were given out – one to Rose and one to another forester with Valley connections, Nancy Young, who is a staff forester for the City of Ottawa. Young worked in Renfrew County prior to getting her job in the City.

The OPFA has more than 900 members working for government and industry throughout the province. For the two who won the award to both have strong Renfrew County connections is a remarkable achievement, note county officials.

EMC news â&#x20AC;&#x201C; TELUS is warning its customers about a sudden and signiďŹ cant increase in the volume of vacation scam calls to Ontario residents. When someone picks up the scam call, a recorded voice thanks them for choosing TELUS and that the company is giving you a free vacation for being a good customer. If you stay on the line it connects you to a

cally using the name of a well-known corporation to appear credible to try and trick people into sharing personal information or sending money to a fraudster. While the calls typically have a North American caller ID, that is simply an attempt to look legitimate and gain trust. TELUS Security has conďŹ rmed the caller ID is being spoofed,

and the calls are actually coming from outside Canada. TELUS Security has already blocked calls from several numbers from reaching its customers, but the scammers are simply creating new false numbers. It appears the scammers are using auto-dialers to randomly call thousands of phone numbers - not just TELUS customers.

Marguirite’s anxiousness to do chores lands her in the outhouse EMC lifestyle - “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.

Mary Cook’s Memories MARY COOK

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 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 Mar-

Seniors ill-prepared for long-term care needs EMC lifestyle – The majority of older Canadians are unaware of the costs associated with long-term care and few are financially prepared to cover expenses, according to a Leger Marketing poll of Canadians aged 60 plus.

The poll, conducted on behalf of The Canadian Life and Health Association (CLHIA), shows that 56 per cent of Canadians are not familiar with the costs of long-term care in their province and two-thirds (67 per cent) do not

guirite, 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,

have a financial plan to cover the costs of ongoing long-term care. “We need to acknowledge that we are facing a looming crisis in this country. Many older Canadians are on the verge of sticker shock when they inevitably come up against the need to pay for long-term care services,” says CL-

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.

HIA president Frank Swedlove. “We calculate that the baby-boomer generation alone will require $1.2 trillion to meet their long-term care needs.” Further, the CLHIA estimates that currently available government programs would only cover about half of this amount.

Community pulls together to help rescue ‘sweetheart of a dog’ TIFFANY LEPACK tlepack@perfprint.ca

EMC lifestyle – Man’s best friend can be a constant companion, a hero and so much more. But sometimes they need a little help from their friends. That was the case for a friendly Australian Shepherd dog that was travelling on its own for much of the winter along Highway 29 near Clayton and Blakeney Road. A number of neighbours took interest in the loveable dog, then named Becky, to ensure she was fed and cared for. She was finally rescued on the first day of April, prompting a name change to reflect the season of change for the dog, hope, new life and being found in April. The dog’s previous owners live in rural Almonte and purchased the one-and-a-halfyear-old dog in November. They say she would tremble if they dropped a piece of paper and it’s suspected she had a troublesome previous life with a breeder. Within a week of living with her new owners, she had escaped and started to be regularly spotted along the highway.

Natalie Gaanderse saw a poster at her veterinarian’s clinic in mid-December and soon after witnessed the dog on the side of the road. “I was excited that I saw her so I called her owners. They had been unsuccessful in trying to get her although they had tried their hardest to,” said Gaanderse. “I live in Braeside, but I board my horse in Clayton and I just kept seeing her. I am a dog lover and my heart would break every time I saw her.” Gaanderse describes her as a very kind dog. “She really is a sweet dog and does not have an aggressive bone in her body. She’s a sweetheart,” she noted. Gaanderse viewed a friend’s posting on Facebook of another sighting and was soon connected with the Ottawa Valley Lost Pet Network page on the social media site. By this time, April had also been spotted a number of times around the municipal garage on Highway 29 near Clayton Road and Indian Bridge Road. “She was scared of people and was just looking for a safe place,” said Gaanderse. “I went to the salt sheds and asked around and found out

SUBMITTED

Natalie Gaanderse, from Braeside, was one of a number of local residents who helped ensure that April, an Australian Shepherd dog, was rescued and cared for over the winter months. that someone was feeding her by a tree.” Gaanderse left a note on the tree and was soon contacted by Kristy Latham who was feeding the hungry pup twice a week. In early March, working with Gisele Villeneuve, Linda

Kidd, Louise Shane, Sue Gallant, Alyssa Toshack and Alley Cosier, all concerned with the dog’s well-being, they hatched a plan to rescue April. “It was a real community effort to rescue her. Without everyone’s help we would not have been able to rescue her,” said Gaanderse. They soon found out that April was spotted at Toshack’s in-laws on an almost daily basis and were able to identify her pattern. Allan and Cathy Toshack continued to feed her until the plan was ironed out. A 10-foot by 10-foot by six-foot dog pen was donated by Joe Pieruner and Dave Visneskie helped set up the pen in the Toshack’s yard. “The plan was to continue feeding her near the pen for a few days, then Allan started move the food further and further into the pen,” said Gaanderse. “The trick would be to close the door before she ran out. We became like MacGyver.”

On April 1, Gaanderse was able to park her car at Shane’s home as to not raise any suspicion. Together they were able to set up the trap and then played the waiting game. MEANT TO BE

“It was meant to be. They had a little rip in their screen door and she went in, I yanked the rope and we had her,” said Gaanderse. After the successful rescue April sat in the back seat of one of the vehicles and Gaanderse noted it was almost like she knew things would be better now. “She looked like she was smiling and saying thanks to everybody,” she said. Kidd, who has fostered similar dogs in need, is now fostering April. “She is reintroducing her to what life should be for a dog: love, kindness, attention and socializing with humans and animals,” said Gaanderse.

April was recently groomed at Avalon Ranch on Lochwinnoch Road and also received two flea baths and a new harness, all donated by owner by Marie-Josee Spurrell. She is also off to the Pinnacle Animal Hospital and the volunteers involved are looking for community support to help cover her check-up. “It’s hard to put into words how generous people are with their time. So many people gave words of encouragement, they were all selfless and gave of their own time,” said Gaanderse. Gaanderse has learned a lot through the entire experience and wants people to know if they are looking for a purebred dog they should do their research and ensure their dogs are spayed and neutered. Anyone who would like to help cover the costs of having April spayed or donate funds for any other expenses, contact Gaanderse via email at natali_ gaanderse@hotmail.com.

In front from left are Joyce McCartney, Josie Walsh and Liz Campbell; and in back Lucy Sandness, Laurie Dechert, Helen Holmes and Anne Stewart. Missing from the photo is Ian Bartlett.

EMC lifestyle – As part of National Volunteer Week, the staff of Arnprior-BraesideMcNab Seniors At Home Program (ABMSHP) hosted their annual Volunteer Appreciation Dinner April 20. It was a special time to recognize and celebrate the incredible efforts of all our volunteers, new and old. “Volunteers strengthen our agency,” said executive director Dennis Harrington. “We have a special group and talented volunteers who assist in the many programs and services offered. From the delivery of hot meals to foot care clinics, to live entertainment at our social events to sharing one-on-one with our Friendly Visiting program.” With many area organizations that count on the dedication of volunteers, ABMSHP is very thankful for the large number of folks who joined the agency this past year. “You are all special in so many different ways,” concluded Harrington before he and volunteer co-ordinator Lisa Bottomley presented pins to those who joined the agency in 2012. Thank you and congratulations to new volunteers Natalie Armitage, Brent Badger, Colleen Blimkie, Elizabeth Briggs, Julie Carroll, Laurie Coggan, Joanne Chartier, Ray Benoit, Jessie Davidson, Liz Dickson, Morgan Dickson, Phyllis Doherty, Donna Dowd, Garry Dowd, Karl Dregischan, Linda Dregischan, Heather

Remembering you is easy, I do it every day, but missing you is heartache that never goes away.

Veteran actors Marcel Girard (Robert) and Alan Rowsom (Bernard) draw the audience into a web of mischief and marital treachery over a weekend tryst at Bernard’s French countryside home. Another veteran actor, Angela Yach as Jacqueline, plays her part with finesse as the plot twists and turns over two acts. Amanda Dixie (Suzette) and Lynn Grinstead (Suzanne) are newcomers to the Prior Players Stage. Their comedic roles as the interchangeable mistresses will keep the audience in stitches. Ed Murphy plays the husband of Suzette who arrives to pick up his wife. Surprisingly, “she’s not there.” The wonderful humour in this play stems from the bawdy grappling among the various romantic partners. Don’t Dress for Dinner is a night out you won’t want to miss. Partnering with Prior Players for the first time is East Side Mario’s. With each ticket sold, theatre patrons are treated to a coupon off dinner at the Arnprior restaurant. Dinner coupons must be used on theatre nights, but don’t have to be used on the same night you attend the theatre. Performances are May 3, 4, 10 and 11 at the CEC at 257 John St. Curtain is at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are on sale for $ 15 and are available at Arnprior Bulk Foods, 115 John St. Tickets are also available at the door.
