EMC News - Quinte West - Property owned by Frank Vreugdenhil at 1573 County Road 5 in the former township of Murray has been approved for rezoning by the Planning Advisory Committee on May 9. The lands have a total lot area of 17.7 hectares (43.7 acres) with 126 metres (413 feet) of frontage on County Road 5 and Stockdale Road. The lands were rezoned from restricted rural to a variety of special general residential zones. “The effect of the amendment is to bring the severed land into conformance with the Murray Ward Zoning Bylaw and to provide zoning protection on lands associated with Cold Creek watercourse,� noted Brian Jardine, manager of Planning Services. The surrounding area consists primarily of residential land uses within the hamlet of Stockdale. The predominant land uses will be single detached dwellings. An environmental protection zone is proposed along the creek

to protect the floodplain and the provincially significant wetland. Notice of application was circulated to all registered owners of land within 120 metres (400 feet) of the subject property. “A member of the public expressed concern that the potential for future development on the parcel is not appropriate for the Stockdale hamlet,� Jardine notes. “Further comments related to concerns surrounding a possible subdivision. The city has not received a draft plan of subdivision on these lands.� A letter dated May 8 was received from Christopher Scott of 1960 Stockdale Road, which sits in front of the lots being rezoned. “It is our understanding that Planning staff may not be privy to some residential site plans, as of yet,� Scott writes. “However, following a conversation with Mr. Vreugdenhil, he has made it clear that his intent is to build a subdivision behind our home and utilize the vacant lot, next to

our property, on Stockdale Road as a point of entry. “We understand that the village of Stockdale is classified as a hamlet, and therefore supports future residential development,� he notes. “Ideally, though, we would ask that member of council and city staff consider these 100-year-plus homes and the Stockdale Mill restaurant as landmarks and reconsider this rezoning application, and possibly apply for heritage status for this area.� Scott said this community encompasses many caring individuals that have worked hard to transform this area. “Twenty-some years ago, when we first moved to Stockdale, there were no paved driveways, no sidewalks, little if any light fixtures. It has been the collaboration of homeowners, business owners and the city, that have made Stockdale an attractive residential area. We ask that you please ensure that our retirement investment properties are protected.�

EMC Lifestyles - Belleville - It was a gorgeous day to be out on a motorcycle on Sunday, May 19, and better than 150 riders took advantage of the weather to join the Gleaners Food Bank ďŹ fth annual Ride for Hunger in Belleville. “It’s about raising awareness, and what brings a community together,â€? said Gleaners director of operation Susanne Quinlan.

“We just hope the bikers enjoy it.�

Starting at Market Square, the riders roared out at about noon and returned by 1:30 p.m. to a square ďŹ lled with rafes, barbeque, live music and a silent auction. Quinlan said the goal of the event was to raise at least $5,000, a number she was conďŹ dent they would achieve.

“We just hope the bikers enjoy it,â€? she said. Riders came from across the province, with some coming from as far as Mississauga for the annual event. That many bikes in one place drew more than a few interested observers as well, many there solely to check out the polished steel and slick paint jobs of participants’ motorcycles. “The ride was great, the weather held up,â€? said rider Oz Vigodda, of Belleville. “It’s a great event, really good for the area.â€? Riders paid $25 to take part in the event, with funds going directly to beneďŹ t Gleaners. With numbers up eight per cent at Gleaners this year and cost of food steadily rising, Quinlan said she was already looking forward to next year’s event, which may see relocation to Zwicks Island in the cards, although the May 24 weekend is still pegged to be the date. “It will build with itself,â€? said Quinlan.

SHUTTLE VAN SERVICE

EMC News - Belleville - Canada’s longestserving Speaker of the House of Commons, the Honourable Peter Milliken, came to Belleville on Wednesday, May 15, speaking to roughly 50 people at Capers Brasserie as part of the Prince Edward-Hastings Federal Liberal Association Bridge Forum. In a 30-minute presentation, Milliken detailed the busy and at times humorous lifestyle of a

Speaker of the House of Commons, from meeting foreign heads of state to the at times invisible inner politics of the House of Commons. Milliken ďŹ rst began as Speaker in 2001 before retiring in 2011, representing the riding of Kingston and the Islands. Milliken’s term as Speaker is noted for containing ďŹ ve of the ten tied House of Commons votes since Confederation, with his votes at times shaping the future of the entire country.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

Complaints about Hydro outages unwarranted

Dear Editor, It seems there is at least one person in the area who is still not pleased with Hydro’s efforts to restore power during the ice storm. He claims that “facts are facts� but there is nothing correct in his so-called facts about the outage. We do not live in a Utopia where every town, village, and hamlet has a fully equipped hospital, fire department, police station, and Hydro repair facility. The province is equipped to deal with the routine power outages that take place from time to time, but when disaster strikes, it takes time to deal with such extensive

problems. Anything on a larger scale would make electrical energy unaffordable to all of us. We have relatives in western Ontario, and in some of those areas, Hydro workers were as hard pressed as here when it came to outages. Hydro does its best to get help to where it’s needed, but with roads coated with ice and/ or blocked by downed trees, this all takes time. And it takes time to bring in crews from across the border. Arrangements must be made, and the assisting utility must ensure that all its needs and emergencies are taken care of before dispatching crews to

Ontario. The extent of the outage overwhelmed the Hydro emergency phone system with tens of thousands of calls from across the province. Again, we are dealing with a system that functions as expected about 99 per cent of the time. I’ve used it on a number of occasions and always found it most satisfactory. The remarks about crews not working 24 hours a day is beyond ridiculous. They are allowed a maximum of 16 straight hours before getting eight hours rest, and they would be lucky if that gives them five hours sleep what

thing that is at risk. Perhaps the complainers who want this utopian Hydro system might wish to pay double on their Hydro bills to make this happen. As to the rural customers being last in line for restoration, that’s the way the grid system works. Sometimes this is called doing things for the greater good. The grid supplies power to major centres like Belleville via its 230,000-volt supply lines, steps down the supply to 44,000 volts for distribution in and around the city, and then out to the rural distribution stations where the voltage is dropped to 4,000 volts. If

repairs are made first in the rural areas, they won’t have power until the repairs closer to the source (Belleville T.S.) have been completed. Meanwhile, thousands of people in Belleville would remain in the dark, and perhaps the hospital might be depending on emergency generators. The work is done logically by starting where the population density is greatest (and is the power source), then proceeds outward from there to the least populated areas.

Global governance is sorely lacking

Dear Editor, The Bangladesh tragedy is a symptom of the ongoing corporate push for greater profits. It is not an isolated incident and it is a global problem. Three cents per T-shirt is about as low as it gets currently, surpassing Haiti where western interests have overthrown democratically elected governments for raising the minimum wage. The minimum wage is an interesting concept. In Canada we have set a limit below which we consider it illegal to employ workers; I wonder if anyone has ever been prosecuted.



We do have exceptions; at harvest Abroad, Germany has a strike on its times imported farm labourers work hands, as 9,000 workers, many recruited harder than most but are not covered, from Greece and Spain working at beand if you brought in temporary work- low minimum for <Amazon.com>, are ers for other work from low wage coun- demanding minimum wage in that countries they were excluded.

be breaks its collar, someone leaves the gate open and the cows get out perhaps. Does this phrase mean the toxic waste pond was constructed next to the river, with a tap or sluice gate built in, with an employee accidentally ordered to open it? Where is Natural Resources Canada in this picture? Apparently our protector of the environment is busy spending $16.5 million in advertising, (up from $9 million last year) mostly promoting lies to Americans about how we really are looking after nature, in order to get rid of Alberta bitumen as quickly as possible with more pipelines. The ads claim that emissions have dropped by 26 per cent from 1990-2011

Bob Johnson, Stirling

when in fact they have increased by 300 per cent. (Emissions per barrel have decreased by 26 per cent, but totals have increased dramatically.) The ads claim we have also â&#x20AC;&#x153;strengthened our environmental protection,â&#x20AC;? when in fact the omnibus bill â&#x20AC;&#x153;guttedâ&#x20AC;? it. Still this Conservative BS is what we have come to expect, and so it passes here almost unnoticed. As one government minister claimed on radio this week another $25 million for Action Canada ads or $20 million are â&#x20AC;&#x153;just tiny amounts in the overall budgetâ&#x20AC;? not worth worrying about. Canada has done away with the penny, how long before the dollar bill is too small to bother with.  Paul Whittaker, Gilmour

Dear Editor, This is my letter to my Conservative MP, Daryl Kramp. Congratulations on showing some backbone recently by standing up to Mr. Harperâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ongoing smear campaigns. It took guts to stand up to a power tripping tinpot like Stephen, and you showed some guts for a change. So far Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not especially a fan of Justin Trudeau, but Big Steveâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bully campaign was just too much, too soonâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and you recognized the unfairness of this slandering and maligning. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Big Steveâ&#x20AC;? is about to fall, and fall hard! You were politically astute in realizing this before most other Conservatives, and your own political credibility has benefited from your independent stance. I am also writing about another matter which has the general Canadian population

(and electorate) upset, and I hope you will also object to the proposal to undermine the CBCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s editorial independence contained in Budget Implementation Bill C-60. No public broadcaster anywhere in the free world faces the degree of political interference that is proposed for the CBC in Bill C-60. This Bill would give the government the opportunity to turn the CBC into a political propaganda machine rather than a public broadcaster. For the sake of our country and our democracy I urge you to work to have provisions concerning the CBC removed from Bill C-60. Again, congratulations on being one of the first Conservative MPs to stand up to Mr. Harperâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bullyragging. The way forward is clear to a high percentage of Canadian voters; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time to throw Big Steve under the bus, as heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s

Lessons not learned Dear Editor, History teaches us that a characteristic weakness of the human race is the welldemonstrated inability or blatant refusal to learn from the lessons of history. Many of the ramifications of the senate scandal have surfaced in the media and I have no doubt that others will come to light in the near future. A case in point has to do with the allegations of malfeasance that have been recorded against Senator Mike Duffy and others who have been involved including Mr. Nigel Wright who recently resigned his position as Chief of Staff to Mr. Stephen Harper.

I am of the opinion that a significant number of your readers may recall the following excerpt from the works of Sir Walter Scott (1771-1832) quote: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Oh What a tangled web we weave when first we practice to deceive.â&#x20AC;? Sad to say it appears that those words of wisdom were not learned or were not understood by those who are involved or who are yet to be identified as participants in the scandal. We have seen what can best be defined as the tip of the iceberg; stay tuned! Smooth sailing, P.H. (Phil) Etter, Belleville

OPINION

An older and wiser Nawaz Sharif?

EMC Editorial - The first time Nawaz Sharif became prime minister of Pakistan was almost a quarter-century ago. His second term was ended fourteen years ago by a miliGwynne Dyer tary coup that drove him into exile. Now he’s back, a good deal older, but is he any wiser? Pakistanis seem to think so—or at least Punjabis do. Almost all of the seats won by his Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Party in last Saturday’s election were in the province of Punjab, which has more people than all of Pakistan’s other provinces combined. That weakens the legitimacy of his victory, but with the support of some candidates who won as independents he will have no trouble in forming a majority government. The question is: what will that government do? It’s a good question, because Pakistan is a nuclear-armed country of 160 million people that has borders with India, Afghanistan and Iran. It is also, in the view of some observers, fairly close to being a “failed state.” Everybody knows that Nawaz Sharif is conservative, pro-business, and devout— during his second term, he tried to pass a constitutional amendment that would have enabled him to enforce Sharia law—but he hasn’t been tremendously forthcoming

about his actual plans for his third term. And some of the things he did say have caused concern in various quarters. The thing that most worries the United States is his declaration that Pakistan should end its involvement in the U.S.led “war on terror.” The army is unhappy about his proposal that the government should negotiate with the Pakistani Taliban (who conducted a campaign of bombings, assassinations and kidnappings against the “secular” political parties in the recent election) rather than just fighting them. And everybody is wondering what Nawaz will do about the economy. The country’s balance of payments is in ruins, and it cannot meet its foreign debt obligations without negotiating new loans from the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund. Those loans would come with onerous conditions about balancing the budget and fixing the tax system, and they wouldn’t come at all without American support. Pakistan is technically a middle-income country, but during the outgoing government’s five years in office power shortages grew so acute that most regions are facing power outages for up to 12 hours a day. Millions of vehicles fuelled by natural gas have been immobilised by gas shortages. The country desperately needs foreign investment, but the plague of Islamist terrorism frightens investors away. Finally, the United States will be withdrawing its troops from Afghanistan next year, and Nawaz Sharif will have to decide what he wants to do about the Taliban in that country (who still have the tacit support of Pakistan’s army). The key to all these puzzles, oddly enough, may lie in

the incoming prime minister’s determination to improve relations with India. In each of his previous terms, he tried very hard to make peace with India, but was thwarted both times by the Pakistani army. The current military chief of staff, General Ashfaq Parvez Kayani, is due to retire at the end of this year (after a threeyear extension in office), and this will give Nawaz a chance to replace him with someone less committed to perpetual confrontation with India. Then many things would become possible. An end to the military confrontation would open the door to large-scale Indian investment in Pakistan (including pipelines bringing oil and gas from Iran and central Asia). It would let Pakistan cut the military budget down to size. And it would end the army’s tacit support for the Taliban in Afghanistan, which is all about ensuring that Pakistan has a friendly government in Kabul to give it “strategic depth” in its long cold war with India. The Taliban will inevitably be part of any post-occupation government in Afghanistan, but without Pakistani support they will have to strike a deal with other forces rather than just taking over. That outcome would greatly mollify Washington and make it easier for Islamabad to get new loans from the World Bank and the IMF. It would also make it easier for the government to negotiate some kind of domestic peace settlement with the Pakistani Taliban. Then, maybe, Nawaz could finally get the Pakistani economy back on track. It’s a long string of ifs, but nobody else on the Pakistani political scene seems to have a better plan.

the money! The president and CEO makes $1,720,000; Laura Formusa, (President and chief executive officer), makes $1,036,740; the Senior V/P of People, Culture and Chief Ethics Officer makes $467,208; a Senior Training Officer makes $364,571; and the Deputy Chief Nuclear Operating Strategic Initiative guy makes $547,088. How about an Executive V/P Nuclear Projects at $843,095. Oh man, now I understand: they REALLY REALLY need the money! Did you know that an “Authorized Nuclear Operator” can make up to $333,540? I would think that an UNauthorized Nuclear Operator, like Homer Simpson for instance, might not even make the Sunshine List. So Myles, my son, what’s it like to make $40,000 each and every month? Oh wait, there’s hefty income tax involved. So listen big guy, what’s a fella do with $25,000 plunked into his bank account each and every month until he takes his

defined benefit pension plan and hikes ’er into the clouds of blissful retirement? I asked my wife what we would do with $25 grand and she said that first of all, the tops and bottoms of our pyjamas would finally match! This isn’t the end you know. When an organization is this desperate for money, when a person whose title is “Vice President Total Rewards” makes $261,912, when a Senior Vice President makes $544,589, when a control room shift supervisor makes $292,900, whoo man ’der gotta be some serious coin raised! So be prepared for the next epistle from Mr. D’Arcey. Right around the corner is PREPAID HYDRO. You know, we’ll start her gently ’eh. Let you pay the future six months hydro up front in six easy payments. You’ll never miss ’er once she’s gone—and, after all, Myles may need new jammies. Wyley Canuck, aka Ken Leavens, Stirling

An interpretation of Hydro One’s new billing

250 Sidney St., Belleville, ON K8P 5L6 Phone: 613-966-2034 Fax: 613-966-8747

By Terry Bush EMC Editorial - It’s been quite a week for Prime Minister Stephen Harper. There he was in New York on Thursday scolding the world for its dwindling support of Israel, a peculiar stance to take in a week where that country decided that four settler outposts in the West Bank ordered demolished, would be granted settlement status. UN resolutions be damned; peace negotiations be damned; Netanyahu’s coalition government needs the settler vote to survive. Hook up the hydro and bring in the IDF. “There’s nothing more shortsighted in Western capitals in our time than the softening of support we’ve seen for Israel around the globe,” Harper was quoted in the Times of Israel, calling the country “the one stable, democratic ally in this part of the world.” Bibi Netanyahu feels the love. After all, he did recently spend $127,000 of Israeli taxpayers’ money to outfit a jet with a sleeping chamber for a five-hour flight to Britain for Margaret Thatcher’s funeral. (Total flight cost was $427,000.) His excuse? He had to be fresh when he met with the PM of Great Britain and our Prime Minister Harper. Meanwhile Israel’s almost 90-yearold president Shimon Perez recently took a flight paid for by taxpayers, an 11-hour flight to South Korea sitting in business class. No $427,000 private flights for Shimon, thank you very much. Israel’s recent violations of Lebanese airspace to bomb targets in Syria may have also ruffled a few feathers around the globe. Some might call this bombardment aiding the Syrian rebels considering government armaments were targeted. Israel says it’s keeping arms away from Hezbollah. Whatever the reason, Israel has once again attacked a sovereign country and the west was strangely silent. The 48 soldiers killed in the attack were barely mentioned in news reports. Netanyahu has said they’ll do it again whenever they think it’s necessary and if Syria responds to this act of war, Israel will really get down to business and kick the Assad regime to the curb. Israel has the right to defend its borders, other nations do not, it seems. Maybe that’s why some governments, much to Harper’s chagrin, aren’t quite so enamoured with State of Israel these days. They really don’t want to be drawn into yet another unnecessary war. But the home front is where Harper really shines. After his proclamation on Thursday, the Prime Minister didn’t really have much to say about the alleged

LETTER TO THE EDITOR

Dear Editor, Did you get your letter telling you about “important changes to your Hydro One Account?” Did you read it? Did you understand that Ontario Hydro REALLY REALLY needs the money? They never once said: “You rotten buggers have been taking advantage of us,” instead they said, “We will let you pay off the old 18 day delay in billing you for Hydro, [which we never thought of before but now are delighted to bill], over the next six months easy payment plan.” The lad who sent you the letter, Mr. Myles D’Arcey, made $484,356.78 in 2012. He needs the money. So do the other 10,800 folks at Hydro who made over $100,000 in 2012. I counted them all, but I might be out by three or four because my eyes were wet with tears of envy or anger, whichever comes first. A conservative average of say $135,000 times 10,800 of the sunshine-enhanced hydro folk translates to one billion, four hundred and fifty-eight million smackeroos. That’s why they need

double dipper and party fund raiser Mike Duffy quitting the Conservative caucus to sit as an independent. When Friday rolled around, another hand-picked Harper senate appointee, Pamela Wallin, also announced that she too was quitting the Conservative caucus while her expenses were being audited. Back in February, Harper had personally vouched for Wallin’s expenses saying they were in line with other politicians. And then on Sunday morning, Harper’s right hand man, Chief of Staff Nigel Wright, announced his resignation as well. Mr. Wright (a Bay Street millionaire) had seen fit to write a personal cheque for 90 grand to pay back Mr. Duffy’s over and above expenses but the Prime Minister didn’t know of course. This in itself might cause one to wonder why Harper wouldn’t know what his chief of staff was doing. One would also wonder why Mike Duffy stopped co-operating with investigators after he paid off his expenses. Did he think he was home free for some reason? Did he think other Conservative senators had his back? If they did they quickly changed their minds and proceeded to duck and cover. Prime Minister Harper hasn’t really said boo about this whole sordid affair other than to back his political appointees. One would hope a politician who promised honest and transparent government would at least give an explanation for the goings on in our nation’s capital. Wasn’t senate reform on Harper’s “to do list” way back when. The sad fact of the matter is both Wallin and Duffy are still being paid to sit in the Senate and we’re footing the bill. Under the same circumstances, do you think your employer would even allow you to walk through the door? The case may be made that the Americans have it right in limiting a president (read prime minister) to two terms in office. Corruption always seems to rise to the top when prime ministers achieve that third mandate be they Liberal or Conservative. And from all appearances, a senate seat seems to be regarded not as giving provincial representation and sober second thought but as a way to have a hell of a good time on the taxpayers’ dime. Too bad this is all going down two years before the next election. Voters have short memories at times. Hopefully they realize corruption isn’t limited to a single party. But these recent revelations do make those Trudeau attack ads sound really silly, don’t they.

3. “I don’t go to the dentist because I am scared to death”. Dentistry is not like what it is used to be. There are so many newer types of numbing agents that can help minimize anxiety and discomfort. Things like Nitrous Oxide, so called laughing gas, and other medications can be used to help patients feel at ease during appointments. This is known as sedation dentistry. Lasers and air abrasion technology can even reduce the need for needles and drills for certain cavities.

As dentists, we see many different types of patients in our day-to-day practice. Many of these patients are well aware of the importance of oral health as part of an overall healthy lifestyle. However, occasionally we encounter some patients who avoid going to see their dentist for many different But again, the more regularly reasons. Here is a list of some you go to see your dentist, the less likely you will need larger common reasons: complex treatments. 1. “I don’t go to the dentist because nothing is bothering me” 4. “I don’t go to dentists because A lack of discomfort does not every time I go, my dentist finds a mean a lack of disease.

6. “I don’t go to the dentist because I am going to get dentures later anyways”. Remember, dentures and partials are NOT true replacements for your teeth. Dentures alone are non-fixed plastic plates that attempt to replace your teeth that are typically solid and anchored in your mouth. Also remember that having dentures means that you now have to think about what you can or cannot eat. Ideally, it is best to avoid dentures if at all possible

that are used to correct problems resulting from oral diseases. For example, the cost for 10 – 20 preventive cleanings and check-ups is similar to the cost of fixing only one tooth with a toothache. People who spend the least amount of money in a dental office tend to be those who see their dentist regularly. This is why most insurance companies pay 80 – 100 percent of preventive treatments; they realize that in the long run, less money will be spent if people see their dentist

EMC News - Belleville - Canadian youth and entrepreneurship were the focus of a joint May 14 celebration event by the Trenval Business Development Corporation and the Canadian Youth Business Foundation (CYBF), as the two organizations lauded the huge strides made in the Quinte region as part of the CYBF loan program for youth ages 18 to 39. “We all know that youth unemployment is higher than in other parts of the demographic, but we also know that older guys like me aren’t going to be in the workforce that much longer,” said past Trenval executive director Bruce Davis. Youth need to be engaged, they need to stay here and not go off somewhere else … we need youth here to create jobs for themselves, for their families, and to create jobs for others.” Since 2010, Trenval has operated as the community partner for the CYBF in the Quinte area, administering funds from the CYBF loan program. The foundation provides up to $15,000 in startup loans with low interest to prospective entrepreneurs, and since 2010 the partnership with Trenval has helped produce 26 new entrepreneurs in the region, employing some 70 people. The loans aren’t given to just anyone; Davis said potential applicants are subjected to a round-table interview not unlike to popular Dragon’s Den TV series. Former Trenval executive director Bruce Davis was one of a number of speakers at a celebration event “We’re looking for people who have a good solid busiMay 14. Photo: Steve Jessel ness plan, a person who has a good idea of what it takes to be an entrepreneur,” he said. “It’s a 24/7/365 venture.” Also on hand for the celebration event was CYBF Ontario Senior Director Scott Bowman. Bowman was highly complimentary of the partnership with Trenval, noting that the organization had been awarded CYBF community partner of the year in 2012, and said he was proud to be able to take part in the celebration of youth entrepreneurship. “At the end of the day we want to see local communities thrive, we don’t just want to see local moving to Toronto or Ottawa or Montreal … we want to see them stay right here at home,” he said. “For us, we want to encourage young people to see that entrepreneurship is a viable career option.” Of the 26 new businesses supported, more than 50 per cent were service oriented, with the rest being split between agriculture, construction, retail, health and wellness, technology services, entertainment, and beauty technologies. “We love the results that are coming out of Belleville and Quinte,” Bowman said. “There’s going to be a big push over the next ten years, we have about forty per cent of business owners across the province wanting to retire … we’re going to rely on young people to take over those businesses, to keep the local economy growing and thriving.” One of the businesses supported by a CYBF loan was set up by Emma Pot, who started Be Prepared, a Canadian Red Cross first aid training company. Pot said that while she was Canadian Youth in Business Foundation Ontario Senior Director Scott Bowman attended a special able to start the company prior to receiving the CYBF loan, celebration for youth entrepreneurs in the Quinte region May 14.

Friends of Presquâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ile celebrate 25 years EMC News - Brighton - The Friends of Presquâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ile are celebrating a milestone anniversary this year, 25 years in support of the local provincial park. The Friends of Presquâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ile is one of 26 similar organizations throughout the province. According to Ontario Parks, a branch of the Ministry of Natural Resources, Friends groups â&#x20AC;&#x153;are community based, not-for-profit, charitable co-operating organizations, which work to enhance the interpretive, educational and recreational objectives of the park. Their activities may include sponsoring of special events, developing and retailing educational products and appropriate souvenir items to park visitors, fund raising, and supporting research projects.â&#x20AC;? For Liz Chatten, one of the founding members of the Friends of Presquâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ile, it was an easy choice. She got involved after seeing a story in the local newspaper. Park staff were interested in getting an organization going and were asking for volunteers to get it up and running. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think I know every inch of the park,â&#x20AC;? she said in an interview last week. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I used it a lot and loved it. I took my children and grandchildren there every chance I got. I still do, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a special place.â&#x20AC;? The new committee started out as a local group of seven, including thenpark superintendent Brian Peck. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t suppose, when we started out, we thought it would be ever become what it is today,â&#x20AC;? said Chatten, who recalls the first meeting,

which featured a guest speaker from the Friends organization at Algonquin Park. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He said, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;What will you get out of this? Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll get this warm, fuzzy feeling.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; But we all loved the park and we wanted to help out in any way we could. And, obviously, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s turned out quite well. I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been 25 years.â&#x20AC;? From the original seven, the Friends roster now includes 339 family members and 40 life members as well as a list of more than 100 volunteers. Another founding member, Nick Quickert, says there were a lot of growing pains on both sidesâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;park management and the Friends volunteers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have quite a soft spot for Presquâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ile and realize the gem thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s there,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Park management was learning from us and what we thought was important. Presquâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ile is a natural heritage park; for a lot of people nature and being able to walk through the park is very important.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Now, there is a certain maturity,â&#x20AC;? he added. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And I can see only good things down the road. They seem to be doing a lot of good things.â&#x20AC;? The founding members have high praise for the first-ever chairperson of the group, the late John Cole. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He loved the park so much and he loved nature,â&#x20AC;? said Quickert. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He was there every day; making sure things were working. Without him, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not sure it would have worked. â&#x20AC;&#x153;His effort and love for the park was very inspiring and he inspired us in way that there was no way you could let John down. I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t say enough for his contribution.â&#x20AC;?

â&#x20AC;&#x153;He really was the driving force that kept the Friends going,â&#x20AC;? added Joanne Dewey. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I felt he was doing 99 per cent of the work.â&#x20AC;? While not on the founding team, she came on board soon afterward when she was hired as an assistant park naturalist. Dewey recalls when she took on the reins as editor of the quarterly Friends newsletter, â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Beacon,â&#x20AC;? and how she had to learn how to operate more than a few computer programs to produce a few dozen copies. These days, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still done on a computer, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s

sent out more often to more than 300 email addresses. The 25th annual general meeting starts at 1 p.m. on June 8 at the park amphitheatre, followed by a barbeque celebration for their membership, including some of the founding committee.

part, “unfortunately, the facility has not gained financial sustainability over the ten-year lease period. Through discussions with partners, it has become clear that there is no financial viability in continuing on with the operation.” Notably, the municipality has invested more than $250,000 to ensure sustainability of the local fitness centre, which included $60,000 in start-up costs and $10,000 for marketing support. Deputy-mayor Craig Kerr has been fielding concerns from local ratepayers who say municipal taxes should not be funding the local YMCA. “People are saying, ‘obviously, the ‘Y’ has not been viable over the past ten years and we better not be putting any more tax money into it,’” he said in an interview on the weekend. At budget time this year, YMCA officials proposed a new agreement: $200,000 from municipal coffers over five years to assure financial viability. Currently, there are about 500 members at the Brighton location, but according to operations director Eunice Kirkpatrick, an average of about 700 is needed without any funding support. Adding to membership woes is the much larger location at Trenton, which offers more amenities, and the proximity of the Cobourg location. Kerr notes how the Brighton location of “Curves for Women” went out of business after the Trenton YMCA opened their doors. “When they faced the reality that they couldn’t make a go of it in Brighton, they quietly folded their tent, as most businesses would,” he said. “They did not approach the municipality for a bailout. In my mind, I need to ask, why

W W

is the ‘Y’ any different? If they haven’t been able to produce a business plan that is viable over the last ten years, why should they be coming to the municipality for a handout?” “I’m wide open on making a decision about what we should or shouldn’t do,” added Kerr. “But I want to hear from all of the players as to what they’re prepared to do.” Your opportunity to be heard on the Brighton YMCA debate begins at 6:30 p.m. on May 30 at the King Edward Park community centre, 75 Elizabeth Street.

Stirling police report EMC News - Stirling - Local police responded to a total of 35 calls for service last week including seven bylaw complaints. Stirling-Rawdon Police Chief Brian Foley says the complaints related primarily to clean yards bylaws, with charges issued and others still being investigated with charges pending. Officers also dealt with fireworks being set off and barking dogs. Police also set up and conducted a RIDE check resulting in no impaired charges or liquor offences. Foley says complaints continue to be investigated for Internet and identity fraud and is again cautioning residents to keep personal information private. The police were also called for a domestic where no charges were laid, to assist the fire department for a grass fire, assaults, 911 hang ups, assisting other police and three traffic complaints with numerous provincial offences notices being issued.

Bridge expansion joints need replacement By Kate Everson

EMC News - Frankford - The existing expansion joints on the Frankford bridge have to be replaced. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The joints should be replaced before any watermain repairs,â&#x20AC;? manager of engineering Tim Colasante told the Public Works committee. Staff are currently working with Jewell Engineering to develop a plan for the repairs to the suspended watermain under both the canal and river bridges. Baltimore Development Services out of Cobourg will do the work. Over the

past 20 years the company has worked with the city (formerly the town of Trenton) on many projects including past repairs to the bridge. Total cost of the project is $60,000 including $30,000 for expansion joint installation and $30,000 for miscellaneous repairs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The city can complete the necessary repairs and still retain $40,000 for the repaving of North Front Street and Mill Street intersection,â&#x20AC;? Colasante said. Jim Turner also reported to the committee that the cleanup from the April 12 ice storm will cost about $70,000. Triland Environmental had the tub grinder at the Frankford landfill site on May 21 to grind the large amount of wood debris. Mayor John Williams commented that a lot of people were

bringing out debris for Public Works to take away that was not from the ice storm. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Unfortunately, people were bringing out their two by fours too,â&#x20AC;? he said. Chris Angelo commented that a settlement for the expropriation of land near the Frankford landfill site has been negotiated with the owners. Angelo said they were offered a fair price and it is up to them if they want to take it to an OMB hearing. Capital works projects in progress in Trenton Ward

include the Dundas Street East revitalization from Ontario to Marmora Streets including a road widening, and a Front Street revitalization from Elgin to Dixon Street. It was noted that parking meter fees in the Front Street parking lot will be voided during construction in that area. Parking problems along Front Street are still an issue, but Chris Angelo noted that the old city hall parking garage is opening soon. Jim Harrison commented, â&#x20AC;&#x153;They are doing a super job.â&#x20AC;?

Former Speaker visits Belleville

EMC News - Belleville - Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s longest-serving Speaker of the House of Commons, the Honourable Peter Milliken, came to Belleville on Wednesday, May 15, speaking to roughly 50 people at Capers Brasserie as part of the Prince Edward-Hastings Federal Liberal Association Bridge Forum. In a 30-minute presentation, Milliken detailed the busy and at times humorous lifestyle of a Speaker of the House of Commons, from meeting foreign heads of state to the at times invisible inner politics of the House of Commons. Milliken first began as Speaker in 2001 before retiring in 2011, representing the riding of Kingston and the Islands. Millikenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s term as Speaker is noted for containing five of the ten tied House of Commons votes since Confederation, with his votes at times shaping the future of the entire country.

Rain barrel sale raises funds for Scotland tour

By Kate Everson

EMC News - Trenton - A yard sale and rain barrel sale at 413 Wing Association on Saturday was a great fund raiser for the Pipes and Drums. “We are going all over Scotland,” said Pipe Major Beth Cleaton. “We will be playing in Inverness, Glencoe, highland games and in castles, the last two weeks of July 2014.” About 22 members of the pipe band will be going over. They are currently fundraising to help pay for costs. “We had a very successful spaghetti dinner on April 6,” Cleaton said. Members of the band cooked and served for over 100 people as they came through the doors at Christ Church in Glen Miller. “We would like to thank Foodland Frankford, Smylie’s Independent Grocers, and Christ Church Glen Miller for their support in this fund raiser,” she added. Cleaton said the band has been very busy on weekends, in parades and festivals. They will be playing for the High-

EMC News - Brighton - Representatives from the provincial Ministry of Environment (MOE), Lower Trent Conservation Authority, Municipality of Brighton and the Guardians of Presqu’ile Bay group met last week to hear details of a testing program at the bay, slated to start this month. In all, researchers will be at the site three times: in May, August and October. “We received a number of calls about Presqu’ile Bay and what is perceived as degraded water quality,” said MOE district environmental officer Gary Muloin to introduce the session. As well, Guardians leader, aquatic environmental scientist Roger Green says his group will be providing a hands-on supplement to MOE efforts with the use of borrowed equipment from Trent University. “We’re going to try to make it compatible,” he said. “We just want to do the same thing the same way so the whole thing can be put together. But I wouldn’t mind adding in some sediment grab samples.” Green foresees taking samples and sending them along to MOE labs for analysis. “That would be great,” he said. “And it would ensure the compatibility of methodology.” While it’s generally acknowledged the bay is dying, testing may find some answers as to why and those attending the second round meeting of a stakeholders group, recently convened by municipal Councillors Tom Rittwage and John Martinello, unanimously agreed. “We’ve got to get going,” Martinello said at that session. “What we need to do is find out what is wrong with the bay.”

But some, like local resident Scott Anderson, who is looking to restore a neighbourhood inlet on the bay, wonder when testing will turn into action. Especially after learning surface water specialist Nadine Benoit, who will be in charge of the Presqu’ile testing project, noted in her presentation, MOE “has several years worth of water quality data for the bay.” “The results of the study have to be known before any comment can be made on that,” said Muloin, after the meeting. “The study will inform the Ministry of their next step. It’s a pretty intensive study and we’ll share the details of any results with members of the public.” Will the Presqu’ile Bay testing program become an annual event? “We’re going to have to look at what this year’s program has delivered and evaluate going forward,” said Muloin. “It’s going along the way we hoped it would,” said Green. “We were going to, somehow, get out there and do it ourselves if MOE hadn’t stepped forward, which we’re very happy they did.” The objectives of the project, said Benoit, in her presentation, are “to take stock of the current range of conditions in water quality features in Presqu’ile Bay and to explore water exchange features within the bay and surrounding areas.” Eleven sampling stations have been “selected to capture conditions near entry points into the bay from various tributaries.” But MOE officials were somewhat red faced when municipal staffer Keith Lee pointed out how the locations indicated on a map, presented at the meeting, missed one of the main streams feeding the bay: Butler Creek.


Poverty challenge opens studentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; eyes By Steve Jessel

EMC News - Belleville - The challenges faced by those living in poverty were at the forefront of a recent day-long workshop in Belleville, where 60 students from Belleville, Trenton and Kingston learned what it can be like to try to survive in a tough situation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The goal of the event is to have these students learn a little bit of the reality of what is it to live in poverty in this area,â&#x20AC;? said Anne Boniferro, Co-ordinator of Religious & Family Life Education for the Algonquin and Lakeshore Catholic School Board. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s for high school students to have an experience of what it might be like to live in poverty, so that they might change some misconceptions they might have about poverty, and be inspired to work to support their neighbours.â&#x20AC;? Put together by the Algonquin and Lakeshore Catholic District School Board (ALCDSB) with support from a number of community organizations, the event followed a unique format that aimed to shed light on the day-to-day struggles of those living in poverty. First, each of the participating students was given a character profile detailing specific circumstances of what the students thought was an imaginary character. Throughout the day, the students then had to approach a number of community organizations, such as food banks or employment services in an attempt

to get their fictional lives back on track. What the students didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know was that their character profiles were based on the real life experiences of someone who has lived in poverty, who then spoke to the students later in the day. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So far, to walk around and listen to them, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re all asking the right questions,â&#x20AC;? said ALCDSB trustee John Brisbois. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Why is this happening? Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re a wealthy society; why do we have poverty?â&#x20AC;? Grade 11 Nicholson Catholic College student Brittani McCormack said she visited some nine different organizations in a short period of time looking for help for her character, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Madeline.â&#x20AC;? Madeline was a 16-year-old high school dropout who was kicked out of an abusive situation at home, and was forced to sleep in friendsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; basements. Madeline also struggled with depression and ADHD, forcing McCormack to go to a number of organizations just to learn about how to cope with the characters conditions. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been tough, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also been really helpful,â&#x20AC;? McCormack said of the experience. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s opened my eyes quite a bit. It makes me understand and realize what these people are going through and how they feel on a day-today basis, when I only have to feel it for maybe a six-hour period.â&#x20AC;? At the end of the day, Brisbois conceded that it would be hard to gauge the overall success of the event based on

numbers alone. Instead, he said that the event had an eye to the long term, and having an impact on students as they move forward with their own lives.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more adjusting attitude, and youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re looking at where theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going after this,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a societal issue; poverty is a challenge for all of us.â&#x20AC;?

Lions want community groups involved in run

Readying for the second annual Stirling Lions Legacy Run/Walk, organizers Glenn Payne and Lin Clarke get a little encouragement from Shirley Anne Ord, owner and operator of SAO Fitness. Runners are being encouraged to register for the June 9 fund raiser that starts at 9 a.m. sharp at the Stirling arena.

Canada Post says closure temporary EMC News - Spring Brook - The Spring Brook Post Office is closing at the end of the month and deliveries normally made to the building will be provided at a neighbourhood post box, says outgoing Postmaster Mariel Rollins. Rollins, who had planned to retire as of June 1, says she was first informed of the decision made by Canada Post officials to close the outlet just before the long weekend. Rollins has spent 41 years with Canada Post and is a third-generation postmaster whose family held the position for nearly a century. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m going to miss it,â&#x20AC;? she says.

On Tuesday, Canada Post Media Relations representative Joelle Hamilton confirmed in an email that the post office in the centre of the hamlet â&#x20AC;&#x153;will be temporarily closed due to the retirement of the current postmaster at the end of the month. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In the next few days, customers will receive a letter as well as keys and locks to group mailboxes where they will temporarily pick up their mail until a new postmaster is hired.â&#x20AC;? Hamilton says the recruitment process is expected to begin shortly with the hope of filling the position â&#x20AC;&#x153;as quickly as possible.â&#x20AC;?

of ways to get involved in the June 9 event alone or with a group. Courses will be laid out for both fiveand ten-kilometre distances, with several categories for runners of all abilities from 12 and under to over 70, as well as a one-kilometre circuit within the fairgrounds for families and young children. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We want the whole community to show up,â&#x20AC;? says Clarke, noting the Youth Action Centre has already jumped onboard and â&#x20AC;&#x153;we would love to seeâ&#x20AC;? more representation from schools, sports associations and other service clubs in the area. All registrations collected for the one-kilometre run/walk, of â&#x20AC;&#x153;a loonie or a twonie,â&#x20AC;? will be donated to the Community Cupboard Food Bank, Payne notes, while proceeds from other

runner registrations will go toward various Lions community projects. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had really great sponsorship support,â&#x20AC;? says Payne of the response to plans for the second annual Stirling Lions Legacy Run/Walk, noting medallions have been generously donated by Hoselton this year, while others, including SAO Fitness, Irwin Cabinet Works and Foodland, provided enough incentive to set the wheels in motion for year two. Sponsors this year also include R&S Home Hardware, A Little Taste of Paradise, Oak Hills Water, Jimmyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Special Pizza, Wells Ford, Pro One Stop, The Running Room and Tri & Run Sports. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Now we just want to encourage people to come out,â&#x20AC;? he says.

couraging local businesses and residents along the courses to cheer the runners on as they pass by. And while there are competitive classes, â&#x20AC;&#x153;weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re all out there to have fun,â&#x20AC;? he says. Participants can cover any of the selected courses at their own pace, whether the fivekilometre route through the village or the longer tenkilometre circuit, and water stations will be set up along the way. But volunteers are still needed for various duties before, during and after the run and as far as registered participants are concerned, â&#x20AC;&#x153;the more the merrier,â&#x20AC;? Payne says. Hoping to top last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s race-time numbers of 102, organizers are encouraging

runners and walkers of all ages to get out and enjoy the fresh air and show their support for the annual event. The shorter track, he notes, is ideal for parents with youngsters in strollers or for spectators awaiting the return of runners on the longer courses. It also provides an opportunity for all facets of the community to participate side by side, some as individuals and others as representatives of their community groups. The run begins at the Stirling arena at 9 a.m. Sunday, June 9, with registration information available online at <runningroom.com> or <stirlinglions.com> or by calling 613-395-0575 or 613-395-3261.

Fire prevention officer Greg King said fire prevention tips include learning how to use a fire extinguisher and what to do if there is a fire in your apartment. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t evacuate, the best thing to do is use duct tape to seal the smoke out,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Then call 911 and we will rescue you.â&#x20AC;?

Tickets for the raffle for the annual â&#x20AC;&#x153;Night on the Orient Expressâ&#x20AC;? gala on October 26 can be purchased at any time with over $15,000 in prizes including a Caribbean cruise. Quinte Health Care CEO Mary Clare Egberts gave an update on the status of Trenton Memorial Hospital and there was a quick slide show from Chief of Staff Dr. Dick Zoutman on Point of Care labs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;TMH is here to stay,â&#x20AC;? Egberts reaffirmed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is alive and well.â&#x20AC;? She said hospitals are currently undergoing the largest change in the past 20 years and Quinte Health Care has seen a drastic cut in its budget. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Despite our having a very elderly population and chronic disease, that did not offset the lack of growing population,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are getting a zero increase in funding over the next five years.

There are going to be a lot of changes and our expectations of hospitals will have to change too. We will have to treat more people out there.â&#x20AC;? She said Quinte Health Care expenses are higher than its revenue and there will be significant reductions in 2013 and 2014. The impact on TMH will be five fewer beds, and they will have to work with Community Care Access Centre (CCAC) and the hospices to make sure these patients are cared for outside of the hospital. She added that physiotherapy will be for inpatients only, not outpatients. The Point of Care lab will be more efficient than the Visitors read the names of contributors on the TMH Foundation donor wall. Photo: Kate Everson previous system. Emergency care will still be sent to TMH except for those who need a higher quality of care, such as a fractured hip, available at Belleville General Hospital. Egberts said the CCAC has increased its services and have added a visit from a nurse after a patient is discharged from a hospital (if needed) within 24 hours, and a visit from a physician within seven days if needed. Nurses in a long-term-care home will try to deal with any issue regarding a patient wishing to be transferred to a hospital.

Egberts said QHC is consulting with doctors for solutions. The future of Trenton Memorial Hospital is to keep its 24-hour emergency department, inpatient beds that are needed, lab services, day surgery, diagnostic imaging, comprehensive breast assessment centre plus more services as a regional centre for ambulatory care. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We will stay a state-of-the-art facility here,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is a rosy future for TMH. There will be changes but it will not change our vision.â&#x20AC;? A slide show by Dr. Dick Zoutman said the Point of Care lab testing at TMH will result in significant cost savings and will be more accurate. He noted that the system has been used in Picton for many years and a similar system was even used by NASA in its space program. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Is it accurate?â&#x20AC;? he asked. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Yes, of course!â&#x20AC;?

So you want to play hardball, do you?

EMC News - Quinte West Hardball players will have a new field to play in after the Public Works department makes a few changes at Centennial Park. “We will redevelop the Don Ogden softball field to include a little league hardball field,” said Chris

Angelo, director of Public Works and Environmental Services. The Public Works committee agreed to allocate $27,000 toward the project. The city had originally wanted to convert Ball Diamond #1 into a hardball field, but staff felt it was too close to the soccer fields. “That was not an ideal location,”

Angelo said. “They could hit the ball into the soccer fields.” The Quinte West Baseball Club has expressed a growing interest in hardball and indicates there are inadequate facilities in the Trenton Ward. Representatives Chris Lisle and Duncan Armstrong said they could attract enough youth players

to host five additional teams this year. There has also been an increased demand for additional soccer fields. The ball diamond at field #1 would be converted into a soccer field and both ball diamonds located at Don

Parks Canada freezes lockage fees

EMC News - Trent Hills - Recreational lockage fees along the Trent-Severn and Rideau waterways will remain the same for the next three years, the federal government has decided. In making the announcement May 14, Environment Minister Peter Kent said he and Parks Canada will use the time to work with MPs, community leaders and the tourism industry “to develop and implement an improved operating model to ensure the long-term financial sustainability of the canals operations.” “It’s great news,” Trent Hills Mayor Hector Macmillan said of “the reprieve” which will give everyone, including the mayors task force he belongs to, more time “to come up with alternative solutions,” including a new way of governance for the Trent-Severn. Parks Canada “has always had challenges

with” operating the waterway, he said. “I just don’t think it’s their forte.” Marc Ackert, captain of the Kawartha Voyageur, a cruise boat, and a member of the mayors task force, said the rate freeze is “very positive for the local municipalities” as it will give them an opportunity to “work on something progressive” in the coming months. He’s been “pushing for due diligence” on how the Trent-Severn is operated The agency caused a furor a few months ago when it announced changes in service resulting from staff layoffs while proposing much higher fees for recreational boaters beginning next year, to help reduce the waterway’s annual deficit. Northumberland-Quinte West MP Rick Norlock said he and fellow MPs concerned about

the negative effects of substantial fee increases, had argued a “better way of operating” the Trent-Severn and Rideau canal systems was needed, and the minister of the environment took their case to Cabinet. Holding the line on fees that haven’t changed since 2008 for another three years “gives certainty” to people planning trips on the waterway, he said. And Parks Canada “has given a commitment that they will do everything they can to ensure there is a continual movement of boat traffic and that nobody … gets hung up in a particular lock unexpectedly,” he said. Jewel Cunningham, Ontario Waterways director for Parks Canada, said there have been “some improvements to the original concept of Please see “Parks” on page 4

EMC News - Madoc - He was known for his tenacity and his hockey skills, then for the secret he kept through most of his career. Theo Fleury is expected to arrive at Parliament Hill today (Thursday) with a crowd of supporters and a message to Ottawa policymakers about child sexual abuse. It shouldn’t ever be a secret, he says. The visit and planned 11 a.m. address marks the end of the former-NHL star’s Victor Walk from Toronto, which saw his team travel along Highway 7 last weekend with stops in Havelock, Madoc and Perth. And halfway to Parliament Hill Fleury was already calling it “a life-changing experience.” Fleury, whose life and experiences are already documented in his 2009 book Playing With Fire, says the walk is just another step in his journey along life’s path but he admits it’s a big one. And the book had a lot to do with it. “I had no idea when I wrote the book what I was getting into,” he says, but adds it was a critical part of his own healing process. And Fleury, who has made the journey from sexual assault victim to advocate for awareness and change, says the problem may actually be significantly worse than estimates reveal. Banners hung from a pair of motorhomes parked at the Quality RV Campground west of Madoc proclaim “Don’t quit before the miracle: 8 million sexually abused Canadians from victim to Victor!!” Preparing to camp for the night, accompanied by his seven fellow walkers, other team members and a pair of motor homes and a pace car, Fleury was greeted by wellwishers in Madoc which he says boosted spirits after an

exhausting day. Walkers travel four at a time, sharing the 80-kilometre distance covered daily, and support has been evident on the road as well, he says. “We’ve had an incredible response,” he says of the inaugural Victor Walk that, while raising funds, is primarily focused on raising awareness. “Orange is the colour of courage,” Fleury says, “and courage is contagious.” The team also sported pink bandanas, walking in support of a different group or individual each day. Saturday, they walked for Rehteah Parsons. And along the way, he says, he has encountered many strangers who have made the admission “me too,” and often for the first time. And the only way to travel from victim to Victor, he notes, is to get rid of the shame. “There’s empowerment with that,” he says. “There’s a lot of shame for the survivors and for their families,” he says, and overcoming past abuse comes in part through the understanding “there’s not a lot you could have done anyway. “It’s the shame that makes us silent.” But since Fleury first spoke out, he has gone on to play the part of advocate and the man behind the Victor Movement. “It’s all about awareness,” Fleury says. And the inaugural Victor Walk may well become an annual event. And the word is getting out. “They know we’re coming,” he says with a laugh when asked about his planned address at Parliament Hill. Among those joining Fleury for the walk is Kim Charlebois, executive director of the Sexual Assault Centre for Quinte and District who called the awareness-raising event “incredibly necessary.” Praising Fleury for his willingness to engage the public through his walk and Please see “Fleury” on page 3 R0012108387

by telling his story, she says the results have already been evident by the number of people showing their support along the route. Particularly impressive, she says, has been cameraman Michael David Lynch who arrived in Madoc after walking backwards, filming the participants all the way from Toronto. Lynch was busy gathering more footage for a documentary as his subjects, both visitors and Victor Walk officials, took a break just off the highway. The walk was held in support of Little Warriors, Sexual Assault Centre for Quinte and District and the Siksika Nation. Their web site, <victorwalk.com> explains:

“The Victor Movement was created to raise awareness for, and heal those who have been devastated by child sexual abuse; to that end the Victor Movement is a social good company focused on business endeavours that will create revenue to give to those chronically underfunded non-profit groups. We don’t believe Canada needs another charity, it needs companies and people who will create platforms to make money and give where needed in the world.” Theo Fleury is surrounded by his Victor Walk team members including (from left) Zoran Zelic, Dawn Robert, Becky Goodwin, Bill Goodwin, Kim Charlebois and Michael David Lynch.

Learning to work together EMC News - Belleville - The Loyalist College campus was the focal point for the Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA) program this past week, as 24 young people from Belleville to Etobicoke took part in a week-long event that focused on the issues of leadership, teamwork, collaboration, and making their community a better place. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Knowledge is only one small aspect of being successful,â&#x20AC;? said organizer Diane Goffin. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The ability to work with others, the ability to understand where theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re coming from, the ability to work as a team, take leadership when you should and give leadership to someone else when appropriate, those are hugely important skills in every aspect of life.â&#x20AC;? First established in 1971, today the program sees participants spend a week on campus at Loyalist College each year. During that period, time is split between workshops and practical activities along with some social time, as the youth learn about contrasting leadership styles and how they can contribute back to their own communities. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lot of opportunities for them to speak and share their ideas, and build their confidence in their abilities to share their ideas, and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re also building some wonderful contacts here,â&#x20AC;? Goffin said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;By the end of the week they have developed such close friendships â&#x20AC;Ś they are there for one another, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wonderful to see.â&#x20AC;? From Belleville, new Loyalist stu-

dent President Chantel Johnston took part, and said it was at times an incredibly â&#x20AC;&#x153;eye-openingâ&#x20AC;? experience. Describing herself as having a â&#x20AC;&#x153;bossyâ&#x20AC;? leadership style, Johnston said it was enlightening to have to interact with youth with varying and at times contrasting leadership styles. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think one of the biggest things we learned is not to treat other people the way you would like to be treated, but to treat others as they would like to be treated, because not everyone is the same,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Instead of just accepting the fact that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re all different, learn how to work with everyone.â&#x20AC;? Johnston said she wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t entirely sure what to expect when she first arrived for the camp, but that the program quickly became a lot of fun as she got to know the other participants. She said it was interesting after the initial few days to start to see the ideas and principles being taught actually being applied after the dayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s events had finished, sometimes without the youth even possibly being aware of what they were doing. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It ended up being a lot of learning how to figure out what kind of leader you are and how to work with other people,â&#x20AC;? Johnston said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was cool to see how we all worked together, and how to not necessarily create leaders, but take people who have leadership skills and help form them into something productive.â&#x20AC;? Goffin said the program is a mix of preparing the youth for personal growth and career opportunities, and in fact it was hard to separate the two aspects at times.

Quinte SailAbility hosts Ready, Set, Wear It challenge By Kate Everson

EMC News - Quinte West - Quinte SailAbility is doing its best to make boating safe and fun for everyone. “With summer almost here, it’s time to remind the nearly 16 million Canadians who will enjoy some form of on-water recreation this year of the importance of wearing a life jacket,” said president Dennis “Fletch” Fletcher. Volunteers came armed to the Quinte SailAbility site at CFB Trenton Yacht Club on Baker Island on May 18. There were personal flotation devices (PFDs) of all kinds. The colonel wore a compact life jacket that had a simple pull cord that inflated the jacket with an imbedded CO2 cartridge. “We wear these on the helicopters,” said Wing Commander Colonel Sean Friday. He showed some of the other celebrities how to do it (and undo it.) MP Rick Norlock, MPP Rob Milligan, Fire John Mallan from Belleville helps Laura Watts from Brighton get the Quinte SailAbility boats ready. Chief John Whelan and volunteers from Photo: Kate Everson the yacht club were on hand to stand up for water safety. They all posed on a yacht tied up at the dock then went, “Ready, Set, Inflate!” and all the jackets popped at once. There were only a few misses, and eventually even those inflated. “We are fortunate to get 426 Squadron to provide us with the CO2 canisters,” Fletch noted. “They can only be used once and cost $45 each.”

Fletch said the other PFDs come already inflated but are bulkier to wear, especially when trying to navigate a vessel like a sailboat. He said there is an automatic PFD that inflates as soon as you hit the water, without having to pull the cord. It is useful if you are unconscious, and it will flip you over so your head is above water. “This is particularly helpful for sailors,” he noted. “The boom could knock you right out of the boat.” He said the inflated types are good too, but they have one problem. You could end up face down in the water. Allen Weese and his wife Orpha were two of the volunteers in the Ready, Set, Inflate from Carrying Place. Allen had two strokes in the past nine years and is in a wheelchair. He has been taking advantage of the SailAbility program that gets him sailing despite his handicap. “It’s great!” Weese said. “I can actually go sailing by myself.” Red McGillivray and his wife Sheila were also in the challenge. Red is an avid ice boater from Carrying Place. The therapeutic sailing program teaches people with all kinds of disabilities to sail in a specially designed boat that is guaranteed not to sink even when holding water. Special devices help even paraplegics get sailing. “We have blind people sailing, quadriplegics, any disability and age can

learn how to sail,” Fletch said. He explained that quadriplegics operate their boat with a “sip and puff” method which requires no functioning limbs. Program support officer Laura Watts and her sister Vanessa Watts, an instructor, both from Brighton, help people sail in the special sailboats with Quinte SailAbility. They showed how a backup boat can help them on the water with great power, but the tiny sailboats themselves are designed to be super stable and most sailors can manage them alone or with an assistant. A crane can lower a disabled person right off the dock into the boat. The only problem might be the swans. “There are dozens of swans out there in the water,” Watts said laughing. “They don’t like it if you get too close to them, especially if they have babies nearby.” A demonstration day is set for June 21 when people who might be interested in participating in Quinte SailAbility can come and try it out on the water. CFB Trenton Yacht Club has hosted one of 200 world-wide “Ready, Set, Wear It” events on May 18. While the goal was to set a world record for the most life jackets worn and inflatable life jackets inflated, the real purpose is to educate boaters on the importance of life jackets and boating safety. Safe Boating Awareness Week is May 18 to 24.

EMC Lifestyles - Strasbourg, located near the German border, is the capital and principal city of the Alsace region in eastern France. Its entire historic city centre, the Grand Ile (Grand Island) has been classified as a World Heritage Site and I found it was just a nice size for an intriguing walking tour. I strolled through this historic area with Annie Dumoulin, the Deputy Director of the Tourism Office, and I was certainly impressed. However, my favourite area of all was La Petite France (Little France), in the southwest corner, where the river Ill splits up into a number of canals and cascades through an area of medieval half-timbered houses, footbridges, and narrow cobblestoned streets. Back in the Middle Ages, this area was primarily the tanners’ quarter, so a lot of these half-timbered houses used to have animal hides hanging out to dry from their lofts. Many of these houses also stocked corn and grain in their attics, so it was common to see hooks at the top of these old buildings so these food products could be hauled up and stored. La Petite France attracts a lot of tourists and I found many photo ops here as I walked through the narrow streets and checked out the picturesque and well maintained 16th and 17th century houses located along the canals; the entire area is basically an island, with canals surrounding it. I watched boats entering and exiting a canal lock, and I discovered a large panoramic terrace at the top of the area’s Vauban Dam (the Great Lock); this dam, built in the 17th century, was an integral part of the fortifications, for the gates on the water could be closed, to block invaders’ boats, and the water level could be raised, to slow down invading pedestrian troops. I also checked out what’s left of the area’s 14th century towers, the “Ponts-Couverts” (Covered Bridges); they haven’t been “covered” since the 18th century, but the name has remained intact. The area has, more recently, added a number of trendy shops, restaurants, and luxury hotels for the tourists. Cleary visible from La Petite France is the towering edifice, Notre-Dame Cathedral; after all, it was the tallest church in the world well into the 19th century. I, of course, visited this magnificent church on my stroll, and it’s possible to ascend its tower for a spectacular panoramic view. I learned some of the church’s beautiful stained glass windows dated to the 12th century, as does

Reality Check:

Sheila Wray Gregoire EMC Lifestyles - Ancaster resident Sharlene Bosma spent Motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day in agony, wondering about the fate of her husband Tim. After taking two guys out

to test drive a truck he was selling, he was never seen by his family again. His body has now been found. Police charged aviation heir Dellen Millard. Bosmaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s truck had been located at his motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s house. He had been identified as having been with Bosma. Yet when he was taken into custody, his lawyer, Deepak Paradkar, expressed incredulity that the police would zero in on his client. According to the CBC, Paradkar said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a very unassuming, humble person. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s intelligent, well-educated and financially well off, so thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no motive here.â&#x20AC;? He went on to note that Millard had attended the Toronto French School. How could someone who attended an elite private school be suspected of doing such a thing? Forgive me for feeling a little sick to my stomach at that statement. Evil knows no social class. I do not know

The Good Earth: EMC Lifestyles - Lilacs (Syringa) are the best spring flowering shrub on the face of this Good Earth. There are quite a few species within this genus but for many of us â&#x20AC;&#x153;lilacâ&#x20AC;? means Syringa vulgaris (vulgaris translates as â&#x20AC;&#x153;commonâ&#x20AC;?). On the west side of our property, along the path leading to our kitchen door, is a very old clump of what appear to be common lilacs (although the cultivar President Lincoln is also a possibility) that reaches up almost 20 feet and overhangs the path. It provides moderate shade during the summer for a collection of woodland plants and nicely separates adjacent properties. However, when this lovely lilac is in full bloom, as it is today, the air is infused with an unmistakeable fragrance. Owing to its size, the blooms are not visible as one passes under the canopy. Guests will often pause on the path and look around for the source of the scent; when they finally look up and see the beautiful flower panicles they take a deeper breath and smile â&#x20AC;Ś always.

Evil knows no social class

There is much contentious discussion about native and introduced plants and the appropriateness of adopting one of the two philosophies. This is a big world with many intricate ecosystems scattered across its surface. Often, an introduction of an organism from without that cultural enclave causes havoc with undesirable results. Sometimes, the opposite is true. My philosophy is â&#x20AC;&#x153;caveat consitorâ&#x20AC;? or â&#x20AC;&#x153;planter beware.â&#x20AC;? As best as I can determine, our lilacs are direct descendants from plants growing in middle Europe, having come to North America in the mid 1600s via the Silk Route. (Wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t you like to see the stamps on that passport?) So, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m happy that this outsider was brought to our continent. The Central Experimental Farm has a very well researched page on their web site, <http://www.friendsofthefarm.ca/>. There are many types of lilacs with unique characteristics of colour, bloom time, form and ultimate

whether Millard is guilty or not; but I find this â&#x20AC;&#x153;why would a wealthy person do this?â&#x20AC;? statement offensive in the extreme. Are we supposed to believe that rich=good and poor=bad? A few years ago I read a brilliant book by psychiatrist M. Scott Peck of The Road Less Traveled fame. In People of the Lie he wrote about the most frustrating part of his practice: coming face to face with evil. And evil people, he thinks, canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be cured, short of a major spiritual intervention. What they need is a priest, not a doctor. Over and over again Scott Peck saw in his office people whose state of mind couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be explained by their upbringing, or by psychiatric theory, or by conditioning. He saw people who chose to lie when the truth wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have harmed them. He saw people who cared nothing of those around them, while still giv-

it around so that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re the ones with the problem. They canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be pinned down. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re slippery. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re slimy. And theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re scary. Peck ended his investigation weary and disheartened. Psychiatry does not have the answers for evil people. They canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be â&#x20AC;&#x153;cured,â&#x20AC;? except perhaps by an exorcist. Therefore, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time to call a spade a spade and not muddy it up with diagnoses making it sound as if these people arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t culpable. So, Mr. Paradkar, I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know if your client is guilty, but I do know that rich people can cause havoc just as much as poor people can. And until we admit that evil has no bounds and no excuse, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be living a lie as much as they are. Instead of lies, letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tell the truth: Evil exists. Evil can be anywhere. And evil needs to be resisted, not excused.

size. Without a doubt there is a lilac for just about every spot on your estate except for deep shade. Our small city property hosts the previously mentioned common lilac, a Madame Lemoine French hybrid, an unknown shrub that was identified by a plantsman as a Belgian lilac, a Tinkerbelle and a Bloomerang, and a Japanese silk lilac tree. The latter is S. reticulata â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ivory Silkâ&#x20AC;? and was introduced by Ontarioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Sheridan Nursery in 1973. This allows us to extend our lilacs-in-bloom time from mid-May to mid-June; however, there is no doubt that the French hybrids are the most fragrant and the most colourful. That doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mean that others

These people were dedicated to deception for one reason: to deflect any responsibility for their own moral choices.

through to mid-September, attracts classic car owners and enthusiasts from both the local area and from points afar. Over the course of the season, participants have been known to arrive from Toronto and Kingston.

Motocross opens in Madoc

EMC News - Madoc - Over 100 families camped out in Madoc Victoria Day weekend to participate in the first meet of motocross racing at the Madoc Fairgrounds. Maguireâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Motocross Racing Series (MMRS) is known for its high level of competition on well maintained tracks. Four years ago John Maguire developed a state-of-the-art track in an unused portion of the Madoc Fairgrounds. Together with the Madoc Agricultural Society (MAS) they host five racing events throughout the season. Maguire said for safety it is â&#x20AC;&#x153;â&#x20AC;Ś best to have a practice day before race day. This way riders get to know the track and build confidence.â&#x20AC;? Maguireâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and the agricultural society managed to have ten days approved by Madoc Township council, but were hoping for one more day for. Maguire said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;That one day makes a difference. It means riders will have to go out without practice. We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like to do that.â&#x20AC;? Dave Chappell of the MAS board said there had been two noise complaints and council decided to limit track time; he said the board hopes council will reconsider in the future. Maguire is willing to work with the limitations. His membership brings in close to 1,000 people for any one event with proceeds of the gate split with MAS. Along with running a food booth, the fair board can profit by $3,000 each race weekend, which they use to improve buildings and facilities on the grounds. Currently, MMRS is running the nine-race Hindle Exhaust Provincial series, using five different tracks (Co-

Blues in the Schools visits two local schools By Sue Dickens

EMC News - Warkworth “Blues in the Schools” (BITS) program is still going strong after more than three decades as it brings musicians to students to conduct classes on the history of the blues, famous blues musicians, different styles of blues, and how to write, sing and perform the blues. Students at Percy Centennial Public School in Warkworth and St. Mary Catholic Elementary School in Campbellford were

among those who were lucky enough to have Canadian blues and roots musician Rick Fines who has been writing songs, recording and touring for over 25 years, teach the BITS program at their school. “The essential part, to encourage the students to express themselves, is of great value whether they are writing a song or experimenting with creating a melody on their own,” Fines told Trent Hills Regional News. Last year BITS was brought to

Kent School and again to Percy by The Loyal Blues Fellowship of Belleville, which has a BITS program in place. “Any form of self-expression helps the kids discern if they like what they have created and in that whole process to understand who they are. The more someone knows about themselves the better chance they have in the world,” said Fines. “The two schools selected to get the program this year offered to pay half the cost, providing

matching funding,” said Jane Archer. She and her son Matt organized the pre-Party for Peck event held earlier this year at the Aron Theatre, as a memorial to her son Jesse “Peck” Archer, a talented musician who was tragically killed in June 2010. The event raises money for BITS. Another fund raiser was the Church Key Spring Revival, now in its 11th year, which was held earlier this month. This is a “signature” fund raiser by Church Key Brewing Company. The final and main fund-raising

event, the third annual Party For Peck will be held on August 3. “It will feature six to eight local bands on a festival stage with state-of-the-art sound and light provided by Clarington Pro Sound who are donating their services, raffles, silent auction, overnight camping, great local food and more at a rural property on Thompson Road near Campbellford,” explained Archer. She has her own musical career as the lead vocalist and manager of the Balls and Jane Blues Band. Her son Matt, who plays bass

in the 24th Street Wailers, is scheduled to perform at the Party for Peck. If enough money is raised, there will be more schools enjoying the BITS program. “We plan to present the Rick Fines program in our remaining elementary schools in the fall, provided our 2013 fund raising is successful and so far we are keeping pace,” Archer told Trent Hills Regional News. For more information check out their Facebook page: <https:// www.facebook.com/PartyforPeck>.

Annual relay race registration

Students in the Grade 7/8 class at Percy Centennial Public School participated in the “Blues in the Schools” program: Eve O’Kane on guitar; Rick Fines, musician who teaches the BITS program; Jack Walsh on bass; Charlie Meades on guitar; Jodi Newman and Elizabeth Semlitch on keyboard; and Gavyn Anderson on guitar.

To the Residents of Brighton My sincere thanks for all your kind words of appreciation. Truly sent, Sincrely meant Alice Richardson THANK YOU The family of the late Albert Lajoie extend our sincere thanks for all the kindness and compassion shown to us during the past weeks. The cards, visits, phone calls, flowers, food and memorial donations were much appreciated. A special thank you is extended to the staff and doctors at Campbellford Memorial and Peterborough Regional Health Centre for their care and concern for Albert. Thank you to Father Gilles for his comforting words and to Ron and Catherine LaVallee for playing the music. Many thanks to the CWL ladies for the delicious lunch served after the service.
