Business owners in Sunbury and Battersea entertainment had “no idea” about Shop South Frontenac Maple Madness Pg. 6

By Hollie Pratt-Campbell hpratt-campbell@theemc.ca

March Entertainment Pg. 11

Gazette News - The inaugural Shop South Frontenac campaign, put on by the Community Futures Development Corporation and the Township of South Frontenac, finished up last week. But not all business owners in the Township were left feeling the campaign succeeded at boosting their stores’ profiles and drawing new customers, as it was intended to do. In fact, many business owners in the Battersea/Sunbury

area claim they were never even aware Shop South Frontenac was taking place until it was too late to sign up. Cam Naish, who is both a Township councillor and owner of Naish’s Country Store in Sunbury, says he first heard of the campaign when he received its passport flyer, a document which outlined what businesses were involved and how to get to them, in the mail. “I had no idea it was being produced as a business owner or as a councillor,” he says. “I absolutely would have participated in the flyer [if I had

known].” And Naish isn’t alone. “I spoke to at least 10 businesses in the area, and they told me they were not contacted by the CFDC to have the opportunity to be in the flyer,” he says. “They all said they certainly would have.” Frontenac CFDC executive director Anne Prichard says she and the other organizers made every effort to make sure all business owners were aware if the campaign and had the opportunity to participate. “The project itself [allowed] businesses to opt in or

not, so no one was excluded,” she says. “We did our best to contact everyone we knew. We do have a number of businesses in the eastern portion [of the township] that are clients of ours and that we do work with, but they chose not to participate. There were some businesses that had originally expressed interest in participating and then chose not to.” Prichard notes that the CFDC also advertised the campaign in a local newspaper, and put information about Shop South Frontenac

in their quarterly newsletter. “We notified all the businesses who were on our [online] directory,” she says. “It’s a free service to be put on the directory, and we encourage businesses to put their information in there.” Naish says that he is not aware of the directory Prichard is referring to. Moreover, he takes issue with the fact that Sunbury and Battersea were not indicated on the map of South Frontenac that was included with the passport. Continued on page 5

florals for weddings with great success. I am booked solid for June already and I had three weddings booked by the end of 2012.â&#x20AC;? About eight years after taking over the location, Kennedy sadly decided to retire the tea shop that occupied the other half of her store and moved into selling gifts. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I made the conscious decision to let the tea room go because I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do it and the flowers, it was just too much. It was really hard because I felt like I was letting people down. I was so wrapped up with it emotionally that I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see that it was too much.â&#x20AC;? Moving to a gift and floral combo has served Kennedy well, and allows her to add a personal touch to some of her arrangements. â&#x20AC;&#x153;With the gifts, I buy with a mind that things can still be incorporated into an arrangement. For funeral work, I like to incorporate

By: Mandy Marciniak EMC Correspondent

personal items; many florists donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do that, but I feel it adds a little more and just makes things more personal and sentimental. The response I get from those incorporations is amazing and people remember those things and I still have those clients coming in just to say hi. It is those things that make this worth it, and that is my niche. I love the personal connections.â&#x20AC;? Memory Lane is truly one of a kind in terms of a flower shop, and it is because of Kennedy and her heart that it thrives in the community and will continue to do so. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I stand behind my work and I put my all into it. Financially, I will never be rich, but I get success in so many other ways. I love to give and it is my way of saying thank you to everyone.â&#x20AC;? For more information on Memory Lane Flowers and Gifts go to www.facebok.com/pages/ memorylaneflowers&gifts.

Gazette Business - Anyone who has ventured through the town of Sydenham at one time or another has probably noticed the quaint little flower shop at the corner of George and Mill streets. Memory Lane Flowers and Gifts has been around, in one form or another, since the mid 1970s and is well known throughout the community. Current owner, Christine Kennedy, is a local entrepreneur who has owned Memory Lane for the past 15 years. Kennedy is the former owner of the Fry Truck in Sydenham, but always dreamed of owning a tea shop. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I pre-bought all of the tables and chairs and was ready to go, I just needed a location and then this location opened up and it was prefect.â&#x20AC;? The one catch with the location was the flower shop. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was challenging, and I quickly went back to school and found courses at St. Lawrence College and in Toronto-based schools that would teach me the skills I needed to run the floral business. The lady that used to own the shop also helped with my training and I became a sponge and I have been ever since, learning as much as I can.â&#x20AC;? Her training has served her well, and Kennedy recently took on even more areas of floral sales. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am self-taught, and after 15 years here I am. The business is Christine Kennedy, owner of Memory Lane Flowers and flourishing and I am moving into Gifts, hard at work. By Mandy Marciniak

business, he said, composers are really storytellers and filmmakers first. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re in partnership with the director to tell their story, and if that means making a brash, in-your-face score thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s drowning out the dialogue and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the best way to tell the story, so be it. [Or it could mean] something way in the background [that only plays for] 10 minutes.â&#x20AC;? While this sort of work is quite different from what more conventional composers do, Danna said that it is an extremely fulfilling way to make a living. It was great, he said, to be a part of the 4,000-odd people from around the world who worked on Life of Pi. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I love that thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s this whole big army of people working toward this singular goal and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re telling it togetherâ&#x20AC;ŚI donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t feel like I havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been able to express what I wanted, because Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m an intimate part of this storytelling process in film.â&#x20AC;? Danna noted that he has learned much over the years from Lee, whom he also worked with on the film The Ice Storm in the late 90s. Lee also took home an Academy Award Feb. 24 for Best Director. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ang is a relentless perfectionist,â&#x20AC;? Danna said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the sweetest, most loveable guy in the world, but heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s relentless. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll work himself way past what youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d think he or anyone else would be able to do, and he brings that out in the whole crew.â&#x20AC;? This attitude, combined with an unparalleled talent, allowed Lee to film what Danna called â&#x20AC;&#x153;the unfilmable bookâ&#x20AC;? and make it work so well. Not only was Pi one of the most critically acclaimed films of 2012, it is also on the verge of

TOWNSHIP OF SOUTH FRONTENAC

grossing $600 million worldwide â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and only a small percentage of those profits have come from the U.S. Danna explained that Piâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s success represents great things for Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s filmmakers, and indeed all non-American film industries. â&#x20AC;&#x153;All the studios are aware of this international angle, and part of it is because of Pi,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re recalculating, thinking â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;if we make our films more about the world, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to make more moneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;.â&#x20AC;?

Danna noted that Pi defies convention in other ways as well. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This film doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make any sense to the old model. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not based on another film. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not copied from something and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not two other films put together. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really different. And not only is it really different, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not American and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about to blow through $600 million. Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s take a moment and just enjoy that as artists and filmmakers.â&#x20AC;?

Business owners in Sunbury and Battersea had “no idea” about Shop South Frontenac Continued from page 1

“Any advertisement that has the South Frontenac endorsement had best show a full depiction of the region,” Naish says. “There are many businesses and tax payers in the areas that were left out of this opportunity, and I find that appalling as a councillor, tax payer and business owner in the missing region.”

Prichard says Sunbury and Battersea were left out because no businesses in that region were part of the Shop South Frontenac campaign. All the same, Naish hopes that any future map produced that claims to be of South Frontenac will include all the communities in the region. He notes that “The Shop South Frontenac flyer was

a great idea. I hope that the CFDC continues their efforts in supporting businesses in our township.” However, Naish adds that “If there are any more Shop South Frontenac passports produced – I truly hope there are – I would hope that whoever is doing the flyer gives greater effort to contacting all the businesses in South Frontenac.”

have a demonstration of the most modern technique, which is reverse osmosis, which some of the bigger sugar bush operations use. What we do have is the modern-day evaporators and the tap lines,” Maki-Esdon explains, adding, “The actual way that it started was with First Nations peoples, and what they used were hollow logs and hot stones. They would heat the stones up in the fire, then drop the heated stones into the hollow log full of sap and boil it down that way, which must have taken forever to do.” Presentations of this First Nations process will take place on Saturdays at 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. Once your mind and belly have had

their fill of all things maple, a brisk walk or leisurely ride on the tractordrawn wagon will take you back to the Outdoor Centre. “Some people, what they’ll do is ride the wagon back, eat their pancakes and then work some of it off by walking back. You can either walk back on the road or through the trail network,” Maki-Esdon says. To enjoy the full experience of Maple Madness, Maki-Esdon recommends visitors set aside at least two hours of their day. Hours of operation are 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Entry to Little Cataraqui Creek Conservation Area, located 2km north of Highway 401 on Division Street, is

$5.50 for adults and children over 12, and $3 for children 12 and under, to a maximum fee of $14 per car. Only cash is accepted at both the entry gate and sugar bush. Pancakes are $1.75 each, juice is $1.75, pop and water is $1.50 and coffee, tea or hot chocolate is $1.50. Maple products from Paul’s Maple Products in Lanark will also be available for purchase. VISA, MasterCard and debit cards can be used to pay for these products at the Outdoor Centre.

Gazette News - With the end of the penny era comes an opportunity to give to a worthy cause. Southern Frontenac Community Services Corporation is collecting pennies to fund renovations and expansion plans for the Grace Centre. SFCSC acquired the former Grade United Church in May of 2011. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were approached by former congregates of the Grace United Church here in Sydenham. They were closing their doors because there were down to seven families and about 15 adherents left in the church. They wanted to keep the building in the community and see it used for community events,â&#x20AC;? said David Townsend, executive director for SFCSC. While Townsend was initially reluctant to take on such a space, he quickly realized that it was perfect for SFCSC. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As I brought in contractors and environmental assessors, we felt that the former church would become a phenomenal place for the community and our services. It would expand our capacity for delivering services and provide a less crowded space for staff. We could open up the Grace Hall for community use and get it back to its original purpose from 1861. We could also get all of our services back into one building.â&#x20AC;? So, the building was purchased in May of 2011, but the funds werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t exactly in the SFCSC budget. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We entered into an agreement with the United Church to purchase the building. Because we werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t an agency

with money sitting around, we entered into a lease-to-own agreement where we are paying rent for three years that is coming off the purchase price. By May of 2014 we have to come up with the remaining funds to buy the building and then it will be ours,â&#x20AC;? said Townsend. Enter Pennies 4 Grace, a campaign that aims to help raise the remaining funds needed to purchase the building, as well as fund some renovations to the space. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The pennies program is to help with renovations and pay down the cost. We also have a funding application into the Ministry of Health to help build an extension off the side of the building for staff offices, as we currently still have staff working out of the Rural Visions office down the street. We are going to have to fundraise about 25 per cent of the cost for the renovations and purchase price so the pennies program will be directly helping that,â&#x20AC;? said Townsend. So, how can community members donate? â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have collection jars here and we have a number of jars in Sydenham and South Frontenac businesses. If people have a collection that they would like us to pick up we will gladly do that as well. The end of the penny is kind of a neat time to really help other agencies, and there are a lot of them in the same position that we are. We have already received a couple hundred dollars in pennies which is really great and promising, and we hope to see many more over the coming months,â&#x20AC;? Townsend said.

In Our Opinion

A gaming dilemma Hollie Pratt-Campbell Reporter

@hollieprattcamp

EMC Editorial - They say that once you have children, you gradually morph into your parents whether you want to or not. I never thought this would happen to me. My parents are wonderful people and I have a great relationship with them, but they are both practical, business-minded accountants and I am an emotional, bleeding-hearted artsie who couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t tell you what the balance currently is in my bank account. Still, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s happening. So far, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m only noticing it in one particular facet of life, but given our household dynamics itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a pretty big deal. It has to do with video games. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been a huge part of Steveâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s life since early childhood and I was never allowed to have them because they would â&#x20AC;&#x153;rot my brainâ&#x20AC;?. As a kid, I would have given my left arm for a Nintendo or Gameboy. For years, I asked for one for every Christmas and birthday, but was always disappointed. As consolation, I would usually receive some sort of educational computer game intended to improve my math skills. Around the age of 10, I gave up and learned to find entertainment in other, equally brain-rotting but for some reason permitted activities, such as watching television and the

same movies over and over again. At 21, I moved in with Steve. At last, I had the luxury of not one but three different game consuls at my disposal, and I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have cared less. In the past, the fact that â&#x20AC;&#x153;gamingâ&#x20AC;? ranked at the top of Steveâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s favourite pastime list never bothered me. He would play his game where the ugly orc things search for the chalice of wisdom in the enchanted forest, or the one where blood splatters all over the screen as the army guys shoot each other to bits, and I would go into the other room and read or goof around online. Then, about halfway through my pregnancy, the gaming started to get to me. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Oh my god that is so stupid,â&#x20AC;? I would say, glaring at the screen as the elf-like thing with the big, annoying face got suited up for its journey to the end of the earth. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re almost 30, how can you still like this stuff?â&#x20AC;? By the time Summer was born, the games were making me downright angry. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What is it teaching our daughter if you spend every second of your spare time playing games about killing people?,â&#x20AC;? I fumed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t play these until after she goes to bed.â&#x20AC;? The fact that Summer was still too young to roll over was beside the point. If we didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t start being responsible parents then, when would we? Then, not too long ago, I went

on a long rant about how gaming does nothing but rot the mind and the body, and how wonderful it was that Summerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s childhood would be full of much nicer activities. Visions of frolics through meadows full of wildflowers, messy, creativity-inciting art projects and hours spent chasing lightening bugs at dusk filled my mind. My daughter was going to be all about knee socks and Mary Janes, not game controllers and off-putting creatures on screens. By the time I finished my rant, Steve looked visibly hurt. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Playing video games is something I always dreamed of sharing with my children.â&#x20AC;? I was conflicted, unsure of how to respond. How could video games be anything other than a brain celldestroying, obesity-enabling indulgence? Sure, Steve liked to play them, but how could he possibly wish this passion on his children? Next came his accusations: how could I, with my addiction to The Voice and love of novels â&#x20AC;&#x201C; many of which are less than literary â&#x20AC;&#x201C; criticize him for wanting to geek out on video games several times a week? Logically, I know that I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t, but my prejudice is too deeply ingrained to be changed at this point. I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stop Summer from playing video games, and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m sure I can learn to tolerate them to some degree if gaming ends up being something she enjoys. But oh, how I hope she chooses the wildflowers and lightening bugs.

Scorekeeping should remain in Ontario youth soccer EMC Editorial - Like it or not, scorekeeping in Ontario youth soccer will soon be a thing of the past. Some leagues have already eliminated the age-old practice, others will for the first time this year, and by 2014 it will be mandatory for all under-12 leagues to go score-free. The new philosophy has sparked much debate regarding the benefits, or lack thereof, of competition in childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sports. The change stems from the idea that drawing the focus away from competition will encourage the young athletes and their coaches to concentrate more on skill development, and eventually make Canada more internationally competitive in soccer. This philosophy is supported by research, and by the fact that many countries that do well at soccer do not typically keep score in youth games. Detractors claim that eliminating scorekeeping will make the game less exciting, and that children will miss out on the allimportant lesson that losing is a part of life. While we think that there is currently far too much emphasis

placed on winning in youth sport on the part of certain coaches and parents, we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe that doing away with scorekeeping is the right choice for Ontario soccer. Perhaps this practice works well in other countries, but given Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s current hyper-competitive sport culture, it is difficult to imagine our youth being motivated to work on their soccer skills â&#x20AC;&#x201C; let alone decide to sign up for the sport in the first place â&#x20AC;&#x201C; if there is no ultimate goal to work toward. Moreover, we believe there is truth to the claim that young soccer players will be shielded from the realities of life if they are not given a chance to learn about winning and losing. Worse, we risk kids getting the message that they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need to put an effort in to do well, and learning the truth the hard way the first time they are called upon to succeed at something of greater consequence. It is lovely to think of children growing up never having to be exposed to the competitive world they will encounter as adults. This ideal, however, is neither practical nor beneficial.

Growing tree planting awareness locally with Trees Ontario By Hollie Pratt-Campbell hpratt-campbell@theemc.ca

Gazette News - Did you know that the Ontario government has committed to plant 50 million trees by 2020 to help fight climate change and regreen the province? And it’s easier than you might think for landowners to get involved through Trees Ontario’s 50 Million Tree program. Such was the subject of a Feb. 26 workshop, hosted by Trees Ontario and the Cataraqui Region Conservation Authority at the Little Cataraqui Creek Outdoor Centre. Through the program, landowners with at least one hectare of productive planting area can see their planting costs reduced by 80 – 90 per cent. Trees Ontario works with over 65 planting agency partners across the province. It is supported by contributions and donations from corporate partners, small businesses, individuals and government. “Folks from tree planting agencies provide site inspections, develop a plan for the property, [help the landowner] decide what their objectives are for the property and

sort out what’s the best tree species for the soil and the conditions,” explained Trees Ontario field advisor Tim Gray. He adds that the agencies will also purchase the trees and conduct weed control and ongoing assessments, allowing the cost to add up to about $1.50 per tree – quite an expensive endeavour for those looking to plant thousands. Thanks to Trees Ontario, landowners can end up paying as little as 50 cents per tree instead. “There are all kinds of reasons why people want to plant trees,” Gray said. “They may plant trees because they want to leave a legacy to children and grandchildren. They may have an interest in providing wildlife habitat. They may want to restore forest conditions to old field sites, or do their part to help mitigate climate change.” The real beauty of it, he said, is trees’ ability to “multitask”: “You may be planting trees for

“[We want people to] think about the bigger picture of what they’re doing when they plant trees,” he says. “There’s a benefit to neighbours, there’s a benefit to the community as a whole and to the environment in ways that are maybe much greater than what they might have thought.” Conservation Authority forestry technician Rick Knapton remarked that generating awareness of the Trees Ontario program was another goal of the workshop. “It’s important for us to promote the tree planting program to members of our watershed,” he said. “We still feel that not everybody knows about this program, so we would like to get the word out to as many people as possible...I hope people take away

from tonight’s presentations that the program is such a good subsidy that if they were ever thinking about planting trees on any size of scale on their property, now’s the time to do it because the subsidies are so great.” The Trees Ontario program, which began in 2008, is slated to continue until 2025. “The other nice thing about the longevity of the program and the program funding is that folks who have a large amount of land that they would like to see planted know they have x number of years to plant a bit each year, rather than trying to do it all at once,” Knapton added. To learn more about the program, please visit their website at www. treesontario.ca.

forest plots, but in the meantime they’re providing wildlife habitat and clean air and places to go walking. There’s recreational value to it too, as well as health benefits. It’s a happier, healthier place to be when you’ve got lots of trees, so there’s certainly value in that.” Gray explained that part of Trees Ontario’s mission is to educate members of the public on the significant health benefits of living around trees. The organization’s recent report, A Healthy Dose of Green: A Prescription for a Healthy Population, illustrates the connection between forests and mental and physical human health, and how tree planting can be an important part of reducing soaring healthcare costs.

Top Tips: for Seniors to Stay Home Longer • Prepare lists of questions to ask health care providers and community resources. • It’s ok to respectfully question and discuss care recommendations if you disagree or have concerns. • If you are a family caregiver, when possible, involve the care recipient in discussions and any decisions regarding their care. You may have to introduce and revisit a subject several times. • Be patient. Take things one step at a time. Don’t try to predict how everything will unfold, and be flexible as things change over time.

Thomas Dâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Arcy McGeeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s vision became Canada Columnist

Gazette Lifestyle - Hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a great way to start your Irish celebrations before March 17: The Brockville Museum and the Brockville Irish Cultural Society are co-sponsoring â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Ballad of Dâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Arcy McGeeâ&#x20AC;?. Thomas Dâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Arcy McGee is arguably the most important Irish person in Canadian history. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Dâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Arcy McGee is our only politician who has been assassinated,â&#x20AC;? said Museum Educator Amy Whitehorne. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He was a great orator and a great thinker, one of the best weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had in Canadian history. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a shame people donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know more about him. Everyone remembers Sir John A. Macdonald, but McGee gets overshadowed. The word gets overused in history texts, but McGee truly was a visionary.â&#x20AC;? Thomas Dâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Arcy McGee was a key player in Confederation. According to former Ontario Premier, William Davis, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Many men contributed to Confederation, but it was McGee who mobilized the popular enthusiasm that made it possible.â&#x20AC;? The eloquent and principled Irishman did not back down from a challenge. He offended many along the way. But none can complain about McGeeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s steadfastness in supporting his adopted country. The historical drama, â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Ballad of Dâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Arcy McGeeâ&#x20AC;?, which includes music,

will be presented at the museum site, 5 Henry St. in Brockville, on March 8 at 7 p.m. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the story of the heroic life and tragic death of McGee. As former Ontario Premier Bill Davis noted, without McGee, there may have been no Confederation. McGee, well familiar with hatred based on race and religion in his Irish homeland, sought to resolve such bitterness in a country that would become Canada. He was attacked by extremists on all sides. His idealism, courage and sense of justice prevailed until the night he was assassinated. His death, like that of Abraham Lincolnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, was a cathartic event for a young nation. Thomas Dâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Arcy McGee was born in 1825 in Carlingford, County Lough, in Ireland. Prospects in Ireland at that time were not good, so, in 1842, a young Dâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Arcy McGee set sail for the U.S., where he went to work as a journalist with a Boston newspaper. An editorial about Irish affairs caught the attention of Daniel Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Connor, often known as Irelandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Liberator. McGee was offered and accepted a position at The Freemanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Journal in Dublin and he returned to Irish soil in 1845. The year after he returned, the first potato blight struck. In the next two years, 20 per cent of the Irish population died and another million emigrated. McGee joined a group plotting Irish independence from England. McGee was

charged with treason. Disguised as a priest, he left Ireland onboard a ship and returned to America. Seeing no solution in either violence or politics, McGee believed that it was up to the Irish in North America to take care of and improve themselves through hard work. But heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d seen injustice firsthand at home. For many decades, the Irish in Ireland had been banned from being educated, holding public office, becoming lawyers and judges, and buying land, among many other restrictions. McGee knew education was a key to improvement. He was attracted to Canada, where it was less crowded and less urbanized. In 1857, McGee moved to Montreal to start a newspaper. In those days, the British Province of Canada consisted of Ontario and Quebec. The French majority in Quebec and the English majority of Ontario viewed each other with suspicion, leading to a constant state of deadlock in the legislature. Everywhere McGee looked he saw conflict. In Ontario, Catholics and Protestants were a divided lot. McGee was in the middle of his own turmoil in Quebec. The Irish felt they werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t properly represented. The New Era, the newspaper where McGee served as editor, called for unity. McGeeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s editorials served more like headlines as they caught the attention of the masses. Continued on page 15

Thomas D’Arcy McGee’s vision became Canada Continued from page 14

His eloquence served him well. “Thomas D’Arcy McGee possessed many of the qualities traditionally associated with the Irish race,” said Davis, in a speech given at St. Paul’s University in Minnesota. “He was quick witted and eloquent, with a gift for phrases which lingered in the memory of those who heard him. He was, throughout his career, a foe of injustice and a champion of the oppressed…He had a vision of the future of his country that went far beyond the imagination of most men of his generation, and he helped to make it a reality.” In addition to being a journalist and poet, McGee travelled the country as a lecturer. He spoke on such issues as literature and history, especially that of Ireland. Despite not promoting a political cause in his lectures, many thought that an Irish papist should not be allowed to speak in public. In 1858, Orangemen attacked his Toronto hotel, which led to one of the worst riots in the city’s history. Two years later, he was forced by vigilantes holding guns on him to cancel one of his lectures. In 1857, he was elected to Parliament with a mandate to secure Catholic Schools and to oppose representation by population. He succeeded in his first mandate: in 1863, legislation was passed recognizing a Catholic school system in Ontario. McGee ran into difficulty when he abandoned his second mandate, that of equal representation. Ontario and Quebec had an equal number of parliamentary seats. But the increasing population of Ontario was becoming dissatisfied with this arrangement. McGee came to see that representation could not work unless it was based on population. This didn’t sit well with many in Montreal. McGee also had the foresight to see that a collection of far-scattered colonies needed more than a coalition. He started to push for the Confederation of Canada. His vision wasn’t limited to Ontario and Quebec. He spoke of extending Canada to the west. McGee offered a vision to a new country. Again, sticking to his principles,

he crossed the floor of Parliament to join John A. Macdonald, a fellow believer in Confederation. McGee played an important negotiating role with the Maritime provinces and the British government. Davis describes the coalition that brought Canada together as “an extraordinary combination, including the Puritan George Brown, the fiery Celt McGee and the genial cynical Scotsman John A. Macdonald.” In post-Civil War USA, Fenians were planning attacks on Canada. McGee was not fond of secret societies, not even those favouring Ireland. He believed that the American Fenians would set back all the progress the Irish had made in Canada. He denounced the Fenians and warned Canadians about them. McGee made many enemies. Still, he won his election in 1867. He suffered ongoing threats to his life. On April 6, 1868, he gave a speech in the new Parliament of the Dominion of Canada. He appealed to the people of Nova Scotia to stay in Confederation. After the speech, he walked home. At his doorstep he was shot in the head. There is still debate whether the convicted and executed Fenian accused of the murder was actually McGee’s killer. The action in “The Ballad of D’Arcy McGee”, narrated by a friend of McGee’s, is set in a town hall in southern Ontario in late 1873, a time of political crisis in a young country. The production is presented by author and actor Mark Finnan, accompanied by traditional musicians and singers Glen Caradus, John Hoffman and Michael Keterner. Tickets for this production are $20 per person. Reservations are strongly recommended. To guarantee a seat at this performance, which runs on one evening only, call the Brockville Museum at 613-342-4397. Much of the above background material on D’Arcy McGee was sourced from a speech given by former Ontario Premier William G. Davis at St. Paul’s University in Minnesota.

INTERNATIONAL Women’s Day MARCH 8, 2013 International Women’s Day has been observed since in the early 1900’s, a time of great expansion and turbulence in the industrialized world that saw booming population growth and the rise of radical ideologies. 1908 Great unrest and critical debate was occurring amongst women. Women’s oppression and inequality was spurring women to become more vocal and active in campaigning for change. Then in 1908, 15,000 women marched through New York City demanding shorter hours, better pay and voting rights. 1909 In accordance with a declaration by the Socialist Party of America, the first National Woman’s Day (NWD) was observed across the United States on 28 February. Women continued to celebrate NWD on the last Sunday of February until 1913. 1910 n 1910 a second International Conference of Working Women was held in Copenhagen. A woman named a Clara Zetkin (Leader of the ‘Women’s Office’ for the Social Democratic Party in Germany) tabled the idea of an International Women’s Day. She proposed that every year in every country there should be a celebration on the same day - a Women’s Day - to press for their demands. The conference of over 100 women from 17 countries, representing unions, socialist parties, working women’s clubs, and including the first three women elected to the Finnish parliament, greeted Zetkin’s suggestion

with unanimous approval and thus International Women’s Day was the result. 1911 Following the decision agreed at Copenhagen in 1911, International Women’s Day (IWD) was honoured the first time in Austria, Denmark, Germany and Switzerland on 19 March. More than one million women and men attended IWD rallies campaigning for women’s rights to work, vote, be trained, to hold public office and end discrimination. However less than a week later on 25 March, the tragic ‘Triangle Fire’ in New York City took the lives of more than 140 working women, most of them Italian and Jewish immigrants. This disastrous event drew significant attention to working conditions and labour legislation in the United States that became a focus of subsequent International Women’s Day events. 1911 also saw women’s ‘Bread and Roses’ campaign. 1913-1914 On the eve of World War I campaigning for peace, Russian women observed their first International Women’s Day on the last Sunday in February 1913. In 1913 following discussions, International Women’s Day was transferred to 8 March and this day has remained the global date for International Wommen’s Day ever since. In 1914 further women across Europe held rallies to campaign against the war and to express women’s solidarity. 1917 On the last Sunday of February, Russian women began a strike for “bread and peace” in response to the death over 2

million Russian soldiers in war. Opposed by political leaders the women continued to strike until four days later the Czar was forced to abdicate and the provisional Government granted women the right to vote. The date the women’s strike commenced was Sunday 23 February on the Julian calendar then in use in Russia. This day on the Gregorian calendar in use elsewhere was 8 March. 1918 - 1999 Since its birth in the socialist movement, International Women’s Day has grown to become a global day of recognition and celebration across developed and developing countries alike. For decades, IWD has grown from strength to strength annually. For many years the United Nations has held an annual IWD conference to coordinate international efforts for women’s rights and participation in social, political and economic processes. 1975 was designated as ‘International Women’s Year’ by the United Nations. Women’s organisations and governments around the world have also observed IWD annually on 8 March by holding large-scale events that honour women’s advancement and while diligently reminding of the continued vigilance and action required to ensure that women’s equality is gained and maintained in all aspects of life. 2000 and beyond IWD is now an official holiday in Afghanistan, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Burkina Faso, Cambodia, China (for women only), Cuba,

Georgia, Guinea-Bissau, Eritrea, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Laos, Madagascar (for women only), Moldova, Mongolia, Montenegro, Nepal (for women only), Russia, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Uganda, Ukraine, Uzbekistan, Vietnam and Zambia. The tradition sees men honouring their mothers, wives, girlfriends, colleagues, etc with flowers and small gifts. In some countries IWD has the equivalent status of Mother’s Day where children give small presents to their mothers and grandmothers. The new millennium has witnessed a significant change and attitudinal shift in both women’s and society’s thoughts about women’s equality and emancipation. Many from a younger generation feel that ‘all the battles have been won for women’ while many feminists from the 1970’s know only too well the longevity and ingrained complexity of patriarchy. With more women in the boardroom, greater equality in legislative rights, and an increased critical mass of women’s visibility as impressive role models in every aspect of life, one could think that women have gained true equality. The unfortunate fact is that women are still not paid equally to that of their male counterparts, women still are not present in equal numbers in business or politics, and globally women’s education, health and the violence against them is worse than that of men. However, great improvements have

been made. We do have female astronauts and prime ministers, school girls are welcomed into university, women can work and have a family, women have real choices. And so the tone and nature of IWD has, for the past few years, moved from being a reminder about the negatives to a celebration of the positives. Annually on 8 March, thousands of events are held throughout the world to inspire women and celebrate achievements. A global web of rich and diverse local activity connects women from all around the world ranging from political rallies, business conferences, government activities and networking events through to local women’s craft markets, theatric performances, fashion parades and more. Many global corporations have also started to more actively support IWD by running their own internal events and through supporting external ones. For example, on 8 March search engine and media giant Google some years even changes its logo on its global search pages. Year on year IWD is certainly increasing in status. The United States even designates the whole month of March as ‘Women’s History Month’. So make a difference, think globally and act locally !! Make everyday International Women’s Day. Do your bit to ensure that the future for girls is bright, equal, safe and rewarding.

Brighten up your winter meals with fresh citrus Gazette Lifestyle (NC) — It may be cold and bleak outside, but your meals don’t have to be. Preparing meals with a sweet splash of citrus not only adds flavour, but also nutrients that can help energize you during the dreary months. “While many fresh fruits and vegetables are out of season in winter, Florida grapefruit is at its peak, “ says registered dietitian Lydia Knorr. “Citrus fruit and juices have tremendous flavour, provide your body with a natural boost in energy and are an excellent source of vitamin C.” As a flavour agent and source of essential nutrients, citrus can bring sunshine to any meal. This recipe incorporates Florida grapefruit and grapefruit juice for a Thai-inspired dish. Thai chicken and Florida grapefruit noodle salad 12 oz (375 g) boneless skinless chicken breasts, thinly sliced 3 tbsp (45 mL) canola oil, divided 2 tbsp (30 mL) 100% Florida grapefruit juice 2 tbsp (30 mL) Thai red curry paste 1 tbsp (15 mL) grated fresh ginger, divided 1 tbsp (15 mL) fish sauce 1 tbsp (15 mL) rice vinegar 1/4 tsp (1 mL) granulated sugar 6 oz (180 g) rice stick noodles 2 Florida ruby red grapefruits, peeled and segmented 1 small red bell pepper, thinly sliced

1 cup (250 mL) bean sprouts ¼ cup (50 mL) chopped peanuts 1 green onion, thinly sliced 2 tbsp (25 mL) chopped fresh mint Combine chicken with 1 tbsp (15 mL) of the canola oil, grapefruit juice, curry paste and 2 tsp (10 mL) of the ginger. Coat evenly. Set aside. In bowl, whisk remaining oil, ginger, fish sauce, vinegar and sugar. Set aside. Cook noodles for two minutes. Drain, rinse and place in bowl. Add grapefruit, red pepper, bean sprouts, peanuts and green onion. Drizzle with dressing, toss well and set aside. In a skillet, set over medium-high heat, stir fry chicken for about eight minutes, until no longer pink. Spoon over noodles and toss. Sprinkle with mint before serving. Makes four servings. www.newscanada.com

Mark Bergin

Enchanting and fascinating peopleâ&#x20AC;Ś.and their world

Planting seeds of community growth Gazette Lifestyle â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Jessica Alkenbrack has traded her red pen for a green thumb. Lifeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s blossoming for Loving Spoonfulâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Community Garden Coordinator. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve known Jessica for several years. We used to work on the same newsroom team. She worked as a copy editor, which meant she was the one who made sure everyoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s grammar and style were up to professional standards. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m hoping Jessica isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t holding a red pen, a copy editorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best friend, when she reads this column. She may cringe when reading this: I refer to her as Jessica, which goes against Canadian Press standards. I had the same issue when I wrote about Sarah Crosbie last year: it felt too impersonal to call her by her last name. Jessica grew up in Brighton. She said that her father being an English teacher meant she learned the value and skills of proper grammar and writing style. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I knew when I was five years old that I wanted to be a writer,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I never shied away from writing. I loved creating stories. I used to be so proud of the storybooks Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d write.â&#x20AC;? These days, she has three books on the go. â&#x20AC;&#x153;None may ever see a publishing house,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But just writing them is rewarding.â&#x20AC;? She moved to Kingston in 2007 for her copy editor position. After becoming one of a growing number of layoffs from the journalism field, Jessica decided it was time to try something new. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I love writing and editing,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I loved being a copy editor, but I got into it at the wrong time.â&#x20AC;? Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s now using her skill set in a new way. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I grew up in a house where we always had healthy food,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Food is so crucial to health. You canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re hungry. And you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be your best if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re filled up on junk food. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a shocking number of people in our community who are barely getting by. You shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to sacrifice healthy food to pay the rent and utilities.â&#x20AC;? She said that her parents always

gardened. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have wonderful parents and had a great childhood,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My grandmother always grows raspberries. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve always thought when I have my own backyard, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll have raspberries. I miss having my own garden.â&#x20AC;? She said that working in a newsroom paid off in her new role with Loving Spoonful. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve seen hundreds of press releases and I know what works and how it works,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important to connect with people.â&#x20AC;? She entered a business marketing program at St. Lawrence College through the Federal Governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Second Career program. That funding covered her first two years in the program. She got through the third year on her own. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m much more family-oriented than career driven,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to leave Kingston. I wanted to use my skills in a nonprofit setting. Loving Spoonful is such a great charity. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m so blessed to have a job I really like. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m really happy to be able to stay in Kingston. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s such a friendly place and I feel at home here.â&#x20AC;? She explained that Loving Spoonful â&#x20AC;&#x153;rescuesâ&#x20AC;? surplus fresh food from restaurants, caterers, bakeries,

Planting seeds of community growth Continued from page 19

She explained that the organization would like to expand drop-off locations for fresh food this year. “We want to make it more convenient for people who want to donate food they’ve grown.” They’re looking for host sites in the east and west ends of the city. They need a number of things to make this happen, including freezers (that will be converted to refrigeration units for the drop-offs) and scales (food or bathroom). “It people pick more than they need from their garden, they could drop it off,” said Jessica. “It gets picked up and distributed the same day. That’s the thing about having so many awesome volunteers. They’re so happy to collect and distribute the food. Most people in the community are very caring about other people in town. We have a very loving

community.” There’s an important Loving Spoonful fundraiser on March 13. For $20 theatre lovers can see Enchanted April at Domino Theatre, 52 Church Street. In 2003, a Matthew Barber adaptation of the 1922 Enchanted April novel opened on Broadway. It’s the story of four women who want to escape a dreary London winter in 1922. They head for an Italian Castle. Two older members of a ladies’ club decide to round up two more women to share expenses. These include a younger woman, Lady Caroline, played by Sara Sturgeon. Many, myself included, were impressed by Sturgeon’s performance as Maria in Sound of Music last December. In the tranquil and magical castle environment, they find hope and rediscover love. All profits from the March 13 performance of Enchanted April go to Loving Spoonful. For tickets, contact Jessica Alkenbrack at 613546-4291 x 1871 or Jessica@lovingspoonful. org.

the patent on May 16, 1933. The first drive-in was opened on June 6, 1933, in Camden, N.J. The price of admission was $.25 for the car and each person inside. Drive-in theaters peaked in popularity in the 1950s, when there were roughly 5,000 driveins operating across the United States and Canada. According to Drive-Ins.com, currently there are about 365 drive-ins remaining in the United States and 55 in Canada.

Gazette News – Every once in awhile I have the urge to express an opinion. Most often the urge relates to water levels, health services, water levels, island beautification and the ferry service on Wolfe Island, where I reside. In this instance I want to express my thanks to the crew of the Wolfe Islander who, for whatever reason, by chance or by design delayed the departure of the 10 pm ferry from Kingston to 10:16 pm. This may (or not) have delayed the 10:40 WI return ferry departure by 5 minutes. The late Kingston departure made “The Tenors” concert we attended, to its very end even better… Why? Because we got to the island at 10:40 pm. If we miss the 10 pm ferry, the next ferry leaves Kingston at 11:20 pm getting us to the island at 11:40 and home after midnight! ….That’s the time if islanders risk staying to the end of anything in Kingston, meetings, movies, concerts and even hockey games ( so I’m told). For our first 10-15 years of living on Wolfe Island we would accept the situation , without much thought although falling asleep at the dock can be rather embarrassing. Or coaxing a cab to speed through the city from the bus/train station, or Queens, or from wherever driving too fast to try to get the 10 pm ferry and miss it anyway, just doesn’t work very well for us anymore.. So what happens? When we should going out somewhere, to a play, a lecture, a movie, a concert, a meeting ? We don’t. We instead join the ranks of the (even further) isolated islanders particularly during the winter months. Not a healthy situation really….. I have not done a survey and I have not questioned those who work shifts, but based on the opinion of fellow concert goers, most of whom had not stayed the extra few minutes to hear the last song sung , (they raced instead from the K Rock Centre to catch the 10 pm ferry to get home at a reasonable hour), a 15minute change to the schedule could make an incredible difference to that scenario… 2. Proposed Federal riding Boundary Changes, while a conundrum for Kingston & The Islands…. changes nothing for Frontenac Islands. Federal Electoral Boundary changes will still leave Frontenac Islands (Howe & Wolfe) in Frontenac County, but voting with Kingston.

HOROSCOPES

ARIES - Mar 21/Apr 20 – Finding time to get everything done can be challenging, Aries. Fortunately, you have quite a few supporters in your corner who are willing to lend a helping hand. TAURUS - Apr 21/May 21 – Taurus, difficult decisions take time to mull over. Although you want to properly work through all the scenarios, this week you might not have all the time you need. GEMINI - May 22/Jun 21 – Gemini, water rolls off of your back quite easily. However, something tugs at you this week and you may have to give it more thought than you’re accustomed to. CANCER - Jun 22/Jul 22 – Cancer, with such a hectic schedule, you may be feeling the pressure. It is not unreasonable to take some time for yourself and focus on your relationship with a spouse or significant other. LEO - Jul 23/Aug 23 – Sometimes you have to make a few mistakes before you get things right, Leo. Don’t let this worry you because you’ll get back on the right path soon enough. VIRGO - Aug 24/Sept 22 – Virgo, it’s important to recognize your way is not always the right way. If you absorb what other people are saying, you might have an easier go of things. LIBRA - Sept 23/Oct 23 –Libra, keep the lines of communication open with a loved one. There may be messages coming your way, and you should be ready to receive them. SCORPIO - Oct 24/Nov 22 – You may need to break out of your routines this week, Scorpio. Even though you thrive when things are organized, you cannot expect everything to go according to plan. SAGITTARIUS - Nov 23/Dec 21 – There are some happy moments in your immediate future, Sagittarius. This will make any difficult days in your recent past seem well worth it. CAPRICORN - Dec 22/Jan 20 – Capricorn, now is a good time to get friends or family together for an informal dinner party. Focus your energy on socialization to get away from the daily grind. AQUARIUS - Jan 21/Feb 18 – Aquarius, others appreciate all that you do for them, but sometimes they have to do for themselves to learn valuable lessons. This week is a time to step aside. PISCES - Feb 19/Mar 20 – Pisces, things may seem like they are going to go one way this week, but at the last minute things turn in an entirely different direction.

Maryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s decision of what to give up for Lent was difficult one Columnist

R0021954908

Gazette Lifestyle - As far as Father was concerned, Mother had taken this Lent business too far. Her giving up meat herself every Friday all year was one thing, but taking it off the menu for everyone during Lent was another kettle of fish altogether. No meal was complete without a good platter of meat on the table, according to Father. And now Lent was here, whatever that meant. And Father thought Motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s idea of not

only giving up meat on Fridayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s for everyone, was right up there with asking a farmer to give up chores, but now she was pressing everyone to give up something they loved for the entire few weeks of Lent!! She suggested Father might want to give up his pipe. As if to show his defiance, he put a match to it, which was already going at full steam ahead! â&#x20AC;&#x153;It will be good discipline for the children,â&#x20AC;? Mother said, and she asked us to think long and hard at what each of us could sacrifice, all in the name of Lent. Mother said if we wanted, we could give up something and not tell anyone else what it was. It would be

our secret between us and God. Well, my sister Audrey wanted everyone to know she was giving up butter. Audrey loved butter, especially since Mother started adding a few drops of yellow colouring to what came out of the churn. Before that it was as white as the driven snow! She was going through her religious phase, and she fell right in with Motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s orders that we five children think long and hard at what we could give up, all in the name of Lent. My brother Earl wanted everyone to know he was giving up whittling. Audrey thought it had to be something you ate. So Earl switched to turnips.

Emerson, who said he was giving up pie, lasted one meal. So he switched to gum. His chances of getting a package of gum were pretty slim back in the â&#x20AC;&#x2122;30s, so that wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t much of sacrifice for Emerson. Everett loved dill pickles and he told everyone within earshot he wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be taking another dill until Mother told him Lent was over. Now, I loved my food. I ate every meal as if it was my last one on earth. I hated headcheese and blood pudding, but this time of year our supply of both had pretty well run out. I had no idea what I could give up that wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seriously affect my mealtimes, and couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t come up with a thing. I took my problem to my older and much wiser sister Audrey, who was always able to come up with a solution to just about anything that ailed me. She suggested LOYALIST TOWNSHIP MINOR SOFTBALL I give up either butterscotch discs

or baloney both of which she knew I loved with a passion, ever so much more than licorice pipes and humbugs which Mr. Briscoe from Briscoesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; General Store often thrust in my hand. Little did he know, I either used them to bribe my brother Emerson, or tossed them into the nearest shrubbery on the way home. I had no taste for either. Both of them always made me think of Cascara which Mother had great faith in, and whether we needed it or not, we were often made take a heaping spoonful â&#x20AC;&#x153;just in caseâ&#x20AC;?. In case of what I had no idea! I knew perfectly well if I gave up baloney or butterscotch discs, I wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t last a week. I asked my sister Audrey if God would mind if I kept my sacrifice to myself. If it would be diluted if I gave something up, and told no one. Audrey said she would think about it. Finally she said: â&#x20AC;&#x153;I see no reason why you have to tell anyone. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s between you and God.â&#x20AC;? I said a silent thank you for this bit of information. I decided there and then to give up licorice pipes!
